I xx ...DEDICATIONW In dedicating the Alameda High School Annual to Sergeant George E. Davis, we are confident that every member of the Student Body and of the Faculty will feel that such an honor is richly de- served. Sergeant George Davis was loyal to our school and to its ideals. His life among us was a source of strength and inspiration. He Was modest and unassuming, and gave in full measure a devoted service that made for him a permanent place in the esteem and af- fection of the R. O. T. C., and of the school at large. 1 1 1 1 xjxfxfyfgfyxxfyxyf ...i xx D D D D D D iff' 32 ii -Z .flkd J rl 5+ J D D NICKOLSON COURT f'xf'xfNfNf'NfN fx Y- J N 1 1 1 ??r'Z-5f:- ,I xx il- 331. 9 C ff k In and abouf fire Jclzool I L1,M, , FACULTY Db is xx xx J C Dr C Dr C Dr C Faculty DR.

Ji MCCONNELL REEVES TRIOLO EVANS Lbbvudamy 69-M20 1,3 Afbbvbkq A.S.A.H.S.,Fall Term, 1930 THIS TERM,S administration, consisting of Presi- dent Dick Bordeaux, Vice-President Pauline Reeves, Re- cording Secretary Jim Triolo, Financial Secretary George McConnell, and Yell Leader Dave Evans, was up to par in the number of meetings provided and perhaps a little above standard in the variety of entertainment presented. The entertainment ranged, in variety, from that Wild and Woolly melodrama of the Wide open spaces, "West of the Rio Grande," produced by Modesto High School through music provided by Brick Morse and Tom Coakley to serious addresses by Messrs. Ford Samuel and James C Fogarty. Less serious talks were given by members of the U. C. Deputations Committee, and members of the Cali- fornia Football team. Local talent of course was not neglected. In short, "a good time was had by all 19 Ea..- 5 rf .fi vw U O Z O 4 F Z .. U3 3 ' 5 P-1 -I I m Q Q Q . .. ..

S., spmg, 1931 THIS TERM'S administration presented its first Student Meeting without a president, for Jim Triolo was home sick in bed, so the meet- ing was conducted by Vice-President Marge Makins. This was Jim,s only absence. The other student officers present at this first Student Meeting were Financial Secretay Dale Peak, Yell Leader Miles Dawson and Recording Secretary Donovan Smith. Prominent among the speakers appearing before the Student Body were Charles Keeler, Berkeley poetg William Gallanders, of the Oakland Y. M. C. A., and Ernie Smith, of radio fame. Musical entertainment was presented not only by local talent but also by musicians from U. C., the Pomona Glee Club, Howard Eastwood, of the Rotary Club, and George Sheller, Alameda graduate, who appeared twice. Dramatic en- tertainment was provided by the Student Players Guild and by the San Jose State Teachers' College Verse Choir. During this administration the school was fortunate in many Ways. For example: the Track team won the A. C. A. L., the Rifle team took first place in the Hearst National Rifle Shoot, and the Orchestra won first honors for all northern California. We hope the Alameda High School continues to fare as well under future administrations.

Some of our members will go to Stanford, California, business colleges, and others will go to work, but whatever occupation calls us we feel that we have had enough experiences to be well suited for future occupations. As low freshmen we entered, only to wander around in bewilder- ment. Louis Roy was our president in the low freshman year, and Alden Stanton in the high freshman. In this year two of our boys won their block A,s. In our Sophomore year, we had Fred Langdon and Bob Blanchard for our Presidents. Under Bob Blanchard, we inaugurated the idea of using petitions for class elections as well as the student body-an idea used by all the class now. As Juniors, we inaugurated the addition of year numerals to our Junior pins. This idea was sponsored by our president, George McConnell. Stuart Stephens, as our Low Senior president, appointed Ray Hitchings manager of the Senior Play. "The College Widow" was selected, and it was a great financial and social success. It had a very large cast, and played before a record house. George McConnell was elected High Senior president, and he ap- pointed Dick Bare and Donovan Smith co-managers of the Seniorpheum, and Glen Brackett manager of the Senior Ball. Our class had twice won the student card trophy, a trophy awarded to the class who sells the most student cards. To name the students responsible for making the class such a success, it would require the naming of 249 students-the whole class.

Under "Hap" Boucher and Billie Hart in the first part of our freshman year, and with Dave Evans and Marjorie Cranston in our high freshman, we were led safely and securely to Sophdom. Again "Hap" Boucher took the reins, and in this year we Won the "Student Card Trophy." Jim Simpson and Marge Cranston then as- sumed leadership, and under Hap Boucher as our manager, "Hisahop" was a financial success. During our Low Junior term the ofhces were turned over to Norman Haavik and Hanalla Thomas. Billie Lee Friedman conferred a great honor upon us by Winning the first Julean Arnold Forum Debate. In our High Junior year Billie Hart and Dorothy Richardson took charge of the class. A great deal of credit goes to Al Hunter, who had charge of the Junior Prom. He set a record that all the other classes should follow. In the Low Senior year Norman Haavik and Doris Halverson led the class to a very successful term. The most outstanding feature of the term activities was the Senior Play, "Billie.,' In this performance A1 Hunter and Madge Conway had the leading parts. Under Harry Rogers, management the play added a neat sum to the rapidly increasing class treasury. 47 .- rXlNfN fx xfxfxyxfxfxlxfxfxf l XJ SID STARK r' Basketball '30-,Sl Baseball '30-'31 Trafhc Committee Swimming '29 VIENNA WHITE Spanish Club MARCELLA LUCKHARDT IRENE SMALLEY Business College HALUE MATSURA Operetta 31 Seniorpheum French Club BILL POOLEY Spanish Club Aviatlon Club Chess Club International Club Go f Mgr 2nCl Team Baseball Mgr 2nd Team Baskcstball BURTON HART 4 g Ba..- DOROTHY ECKERT JUNE SCHULZ MARGARET BARTLING International Club Spanish Club Operetta '30 Operetta '31 Swimming Crcw Seniorpheum DOREEN LISHMAN Spanish Club Astronomical Club Primavera Bells of Capistrano Tennis Swimming Crew Basketball , .

They easily persuaded Mr. Arnold to secure for their class a Chinese silver image to serve as the trophy for the debate on East-West relations, the pur- pose of these debates is to encourage a more intelligent interest in our relations with the Far East. When Mr. Arnold returned to Pei- ping, he chose from the score or more beautiful stone tablets surrounding the Confucian temple, the most outstanding and appropriate one. Both the original stone tablet and our silver replica have four parts-the head, the body, the base and the foundation. Because in Chinese mythology, the dragon is considered the most sacred of animals, the head is usually formed of a double set of dragons, and just beyond the dragon's mouth are pearls, symbolical of all wisdom. On each side of the body dragons rise from the water to the clouds. One face of the body is inscribed in Chinese characters meaning, "Men of Learning Are Brothers," on the other the following dedication- "Presented to the Alameda High School to serve as an Annual Debating Trophy to Encourage a More Intelligent Interest in America's Relations with the Far East by the Class of December, 1929.,' The base is a tortoise shown rising from the waves which form the foundation. Four species of fish are carved on the corners of this foun- dationg first, a common fishg second, a lobster, third, a crab, and fourth, a turtle. The replica, twenty-four inches high, is hollow, and contains a scroll of Chinese silk on which are written the names of the winners. The Hrst two debates were won by Billy Lee Friedman and Horace Miller in the order named. s v :"',,":"..--- 63 Ei..- - fxfxfxfxfxfx xxoxfoxflz ,gf 64 x.x IN HIGH JUNIORS INKN -SF High Junior Class OFFICERS S .

In spring athletics we have been most outstanding. Our boys won the interclass basketball championship, and in track and swimming We Were well represented. This year our meetings have been very good, and We have had all kinds of entertainment.

With Bill Clune as our leader this semester we staged a new kind of dansant in which the best dancers in school competed for prizes. We also put on a colorful andgenjoyable Junior Jig.

We haven't quite comprehended it yet, the fact that we are no longer "scrubs" It seems to us but yesterday that the doors of Alameda High opened to a new freshman class, who gazed wide-eyed and tremulous at the constant wonders that took place all about them in this new strange school, this land of higher education. As the term wore on, gradually our furtive glances and fearful timidity were replaced by sunny grins and an air of almost complete self-assurance came upon us. Now we are sophomores. This term we gave a very successful dan- sant, which placed a sum of money in our treasury. A number of our members have shown great ability in school sports and, to our credit we have been accepted. We have become a part of this great student body, and We are very proud of our place.

I was tired of staying home, and doing conventional things. I wanted to get so much off schedule that it would be quite impos- sible for anyone to set his watch by my actions, as had been more or less the situation in the past. For years it had been the custom for me to rise at a certain time, to eat at a certain time, and to go to bed at a certain time. Everything was done at a certain time. How I detested those words! So, when the opportunity came, I resolved to get out into the "wide open spacesf' I-Iere, and had never seen a real western ranch. "Posi- tively disgraceful," thought Duke and I. Duke was the other half of the expedition whose purpose was to see America first-our half, at least. We Htted up a Ford light-delivery truck with everything imaginable on the back. We carried a twenty-gallon reserve gasoline tank, a three- gallon reserve oil tank, a twenty-gallon water tank, two weeks' rations of food, bedding, all sorts of tools and car accessories, our personal wardrobe Cwhich wasn't very muchj , cooking utensils, and a complete motion picture-taking outfit with 1500 feet of film. All this was securely tied down under a canvas on the bed of the truck. We also took along with us maps, guns, flashlights, knives, compasses, etc. These were car- ried under the seat so as to be accessible at all times. After a lengthy good-bye, we left Modesto at 11:00 A. M. on the day after Christmas. At last we were on our way. Where didn't matter, so long as it was a long way from home. We could decide the places of interest which we wanted to see after we got near their vicinity. Right now the only thought that occurred to us was to travel. However, our I had lived all my life, fNf'XlN.fx. general objective was to see the Southwest and Mexico. The trip to Los Angeles was uneventful, except that we lost our horn. The vibration of the car caused it to work its way loose. Fortunately, V we had another one. We got to Los Angeles at eight , pssy g o,clock that night. After getting maps from the auto I l!Q, ::.,,3-1 association, we continued on to El Centro, where we FII. ii' . x W - . - arrived the next morning at 4:30, thus going over 500 miles in seventeen hours. On this drive Duke and I --.gif 78 Ea..- fx s-Q im-- XJ xJx,i-, X,x,x,fCfx.fxJ alternated driving and sleeping. A cheap hotel offered accommodations until ten o'clock the next morning, when we jumped up and off to the Mexican border--only a few miles away. At Mexicali, the border town, we were to see the Secretary of State of Lower California, but unfor- tunately, he and the rest of the members of his cabinet were just over- thrown. Three sets of officers had been installed in this territory during the year. Frank C. Jordan, Secretary of State of California, gave us letters of introduction to any official that we might meet throughout our travels, and at this time we were trying to see the Mexican Secretary of State to ask him if we could carry our movie cameras into his country. We had to leave the car on the American side of the line and walk in, per instructions received from the customs officials. After walking two miles to the "Palacio de Gobernacio," and then finding out that the man we wanted to see was no longer in office, we started to go out of the palace, and I proceeded to walk in back of one of the Mexican soldiers, who was on duty in front of the palace. But no sooner did I get behind him, than he swung around and grabbed me by the arm and, with a tumult of incomprehensible language, I was made to pass in front. I guess he thought I was going to knife him. We left Mexicali at noon the same day and traveled in an easterly direction across the great deserts of Southern California. Here is where all the Sahara Desert scenes for the movies are taken. Upon entering Arizona, we had to unpack everything, and witness an inspection by the customs officials, but everything passed all right and we continued across the Colorado River. I have never seen such a muddy body of water in my life as the Colorado. We stopped and ate dinner in Yuma, Arizona. This was the Hrst good meal we had had since we left home. The roads in Arizona certainly don't compare with those of Cali- fornia. We traveled practically all over the State, and only saw one paved highway, the others all being gravel, and some of them were hardly even graded. Detours were thick in this part of the country, and the roads are numerous with "dips." "Dips" are gullies running across the road, which the state has neglected to bridge. Nothing happened outside of a flat tire until we arrived in Tucson, at 1:30 A. M. the next day, where we lodged in an old hotel, and had our first real night,s sleep. The next morning, on the way out of Tucson, we encountered the first of the bad roads on which we were to travel the remainder of the trip. Also we viewed from here the far-off purple tinged mountains, and the dry, barren deserts spotted with massive cactus plants. From Tucson to Benson we travelled miles without even coming within sight of a town or village of any kind. Vultures soared above 79 Ea..- I - C 1' f'xf'XfXfNr'x , w M t M ' Qv. vw. and defied my Cprobably mis- aimedj pistol shots. At Benson, after quenching our thirst with i sodas, we turned northward to- ward Wilcox, our next stop. Wil- cox was out of the way of our route, but we headed toward the "76', Cattle Ranch, near Bonita, Arizona. Harold Duncan, brother of the famous Duncan Sisters and personal friend of Duke and myself, was located at this ranch, so we de- cided that we would run up and see him. At Wilcox, after getting in- formation regarding the location of the ranch, we set out to go up a forty-mile valley toward the largest cattle ranch in Arizona. We pulled in to the ranch at about five in the evening, much to the surprise of Harold Duncan. I'll say surprise! He almost fell over. Imagine seeing us way down there over a thousand miles from home! V' vvf 'cms - , up The ranch was certainly beautiful, being at the very end of the val- ley overlooking 250,000 acres. It is owned by W. T. Webb, former gov- , ernor of Arizona. It is also a "Dude,' Ranch, taking in Easterners who have come out West to get a taste of adventure and what-not. The in- , 5 terior of the house is decorated with various 2 cattle brands stamped into the stucco walls. Lt There are over one hundred and fifty brands on f i the walls throughout the house. That night we ate dinner in the kitchen with p T all the cow hands, and the food certainly tasted QI. ' ' 11, M good, that is, what we got of it between the so N 1 R. pm X ,ls 1 mighty reaches of the workingmen. lf There probably could have been a much bet- 1' ter time to arrive at the ranch, according to the A . stories which Hlled our ears upon arriving. It 4 . seemed as though the day before we pulled in, three young hands had stolen several horses and 5 ,, had run away. Before leaving they calmly re- Q9 3 E55 moved the distributor caps from all the ranch M is cars, so as to guarantee their escape. M The next morning we were promptly awak- ened at six o'clock by Harold Duncan shooting off his shotgun just outside our window. Duke .53 and I did chores all day around the ranch, in- cluding working on a one-lunger buzz-saw, , Il S 53 . 1 Q, 1 1 Q 5 QV 1 x 1 Y . vw, Y Q S 2' 1 4 e U ax sv, f , - I ' 9 , 'Q 7.

Later on in the day Harold and I went to Bonita, the nearest town, for the mail. While there I learned that the three boys who stole the horses had been found. Arizona is a most beautiful spot. The sun- sets can only be equalled in the South Seas. The "76" Cattle Ranch is exactly one mile above sea level. Yet one is not conscious of this fact because the place is nestled in one end of this immense valley and surrounded by high mountains. It is an ideal spot for hunting, for rest and health. It struck me also as a perfect place for a honeymoon. The third day of our stay, Duke and Iwere again awakened by Harold,s practical jokes, this time with reports of guns, loud yelling, and two skunk skins thrown in our bed. Well, if you have ever slept with a skunk you understand just how it is! That morning I took some stills and movies of various objects of interest on the ranch, including all the animals. The ranch was a menag- erie-having tame crows, ringtails, ducks, dogs, cats, tame deer, canaries, foxes, coyotes, chickens, turtles, guinea pigs, white mice, etc., and skunks. But the object of our excursion was to travel, and so after raking fare- wells, the old car, again fueled and rarin' to go, rattled down the road toward El Paso, Texas. The trip to El Paso can be summarized as follows: through the Stockton Pass we crossed forty-two large creeks, with no bridges, in less than twenty miles. There was a fairly level road after the pass. We traveled over the first paved road that we had seen in Arizona, although only ten miles long. Enroute to Lordsburg, New Mexico, our fan froze on us and we had to disconnect the fan belt and generator, and then drive twenty miles without lights to save our battery. No customs in- spection between Arizona and New Mexico, nor between New Mexico and Texas. We crossed over the famous Rio Grande at 11:30 P. M. that night and had never seen such a ditch. Admiring the Rio Grande is like calling our own Estuary beautiful. The next morning we decided to see the Grand Canyon. So, leaving El Paso, Texas, on December 31, we arrived at the Canyon on New Years day. One cannot imagine the beauty and majesty of this beautiful Canyon. One must see it himself. If ever you have occasion to stand on the brim of the Canyon, you will immediately become conscious of how small and insignificant you are compared with such a masterpiece of Nature. -,,,,f,f 81 jj, .- , c 11- tl-nflxl ' Tfw. .fxifx xfkuxfxfxfyf xl glx! After seeing our fill of the Canyon we headed toward old 7 6--arriv- ing there on January 4. On the following evening a few of the boys and myself went over to Fort Grant, which is now the state reformatory for boys, to see a movie show. Of course the machine broke down-a common occurrence, we were informed. There certainly were a bunch of tough looking kids in that hall. One fellow came hopping in the door with huge chains around his feet. He had been caught trying to escape that day. The next morning we left the ranch and headed for home. We arrived home just in time for dinner on Friday, January 9, 1931. Although we had planned to see Mexico more than we did, I am inclined to think a great deal of the old popular saying: "See America Firstln A SYMPHONY To witness and Not to know That nature is One mad color show. Built without thought Of you or me Piece by piece To a symphony. Each color a note, Of nature's passion A royal song She doth fashion. The mountain, a drum Of might and main, A trickling stream A flute-like strain. A sunlight meadow A drawn bow On a violin Soft and low. The mighty waters Of a capricious sea Wax strong with the Voice of the symphony.

The play was a comedy, and it dealt with life at a small college during football season. The cast included a large number of characters varying from a college flirt and a football hero, to a dignified teacher of the Well-known anthropology. Marge Makins and Ed Morgan headed a cast of twenty-five which included Donovan Smith, Ray Marsh, Jose Castro, Don Fassett, Miles Dawson, Dave Evans, Don Caughey, Jim Triolo, Holly Fitting, Dave Rutherford, George McConnell, Joe Durien, Hans Schwertfeger, Barbara Baxter, Rosemary Collier, Fritzi Bush, Nelsena Nelson, Helen Burns, Allison Peck, Horace Snyders, Pauline Reeves, and Marion Vigen. The plot: the Well-known story of college life-the beautiful heroine, the football hero and his rival for the lady's affections, the "Big Game," and the inevitable happy ending. The play Was produced before the largest audience the school has ever had to Witness a Senior Play, and the financial returns have been equalled only once. junior P70171-FALL, 193 0 All our compliments to the class of December, 1931, on the splendid Prom which they gave on the evening of November 7, 1930, under the able leadership of A1 Hunter, assisted by Billie Hart, Dorothy Richardson and Harry Rogers. The financial returns instead of being merely enough for the class to break even as happens in most cases, amounted to the unprecedented sum of over eighty dollars. Glen Brackett's orchestra furnished the music.

Bill Sweetland was the manager. The program consisted of musical numbers by the A. H. S. orchestra under the direction of Mr. Kafka, and a one-act ,play was pre- sented. Also a boys' trio, a girls, gym team, selections by the newly formed Harmonica Club. A unique feature was the appearance of a Japanese quartette which sang several numbers. The program Was con- cluded with a revue carrying out the country club idea. Altogether, it was a successful Orpheum. S6l1i0RADIOYpb6M171--SPRING, 1931 THE CLASS of June, 1931, presented their orpheum on the eve- ning of May 1, 1931, with a different title-the "SenioRADIOrpheum." As the title suggests, the orpheum was on the order of a radio program beginning with a Women's program and continuing through the day with an organ recital, supplied by the Harmonica Club, a colored skit, selec- tions from a quartette and piano, "The Ghost Hunters,', a one-act play, and that classic masterpiece, "Wild Nell, the Pet of the Plains, or Her Final Sacrificef, The German Club from San Francisco sent over their gym team. This team is considered one of the best teams in the State of California, and the audience received a real thrill from this act. The stage Was decorated to represent a radio station, and each num- ber was announced by an announcer. The auditorium was equipped with a microphone and loud speaker, making the performance unique in its idea. The dance orchestra Was Glenn Brackett,s. The co-managers, Donovan Smith and Dick Bare, with their staff are to be congratulated on arranging such an interesting program. Every person Who saw the SenioRADIOrpheum said that it was the best and most original orpheum that had ever been presented before the high school. The SenioRADIOrpheum was a great success both financially and socially. It played before the largest Orpheum audience that the school has had. junior Prom-SPRING, 193 1 THIS YEAR,S Junior Prom was managed by Eddie Eckhardt, and given under the auspices of the class of June, '32. A distinctive feature of this Prom was that it Was held in the high school gym instead of in the Porter auditorium Where it is usually held. We hope that this change in location will set a precedent for future classes. The gym was deco- rated to represent a garden, and it Was lighted with different colored Neon lights. Sport clothes were Worn to harmonize with the decorations. -..if 84 fNfXfXf1fNf'x NJ M rl A J i S Senior Play-SPRING, 193 1 ON THE evening of February 27, 1931, the class of December, ,31, presented "Billy," a comedy in three acts. The cast was headed by Madge Conway and Alfred Hunter. Tom McLaverty, Everett Farwell, Meredith Stowe, Dorothy Richardson, Dick Shephard, Joe Fernandez, Bob Taylor, Harry Boucher, Irma Tiedemann, Horace Miller, and Louise Leonard all did themselves honor. The plot deals with a football player, who loses four front teeth in a game. He goes on an ocean voyage to get used to them, and while on board he meets the girl he loves. He does not want her to find out that he has lost the teeth, and around this idea the plot grows. The Managerial staff was headed by Harry Rogers, and consisted of Eric Essex, Victor Schaeffer, Jim Simpson, Bill Rea, Philip Oliver-Smith, and Billie Hart. UTI-IE MIKADOH The well known Gilbert and Sullivan comic opera, "The Mikadof' was presented by the combined Glee Clubs under the musical direction 85 had J . - -- i? . xfxfxjxfxfxx x, ,,x! , of Mrs. Hazel B. Hunter, and coached by Mr. Fred Carlisle, on the eve- nings of March 26 and 27, 1931. The cast included Miles Dawson, as the blase Mikado of Japan, Louis Roy and Walter Grazzini sharing the honors as Nanki-Poo, the Mikado,s son, disguised as the wandering minstrelg Jose Castro, who portrayed cleverly the character of Ko-Ko, the Lord High Executionerg Donald Caughey, who played the part of Poo-Bah, the Lord High Every- thing Else in a very haughty and dignified manner even though his garters persisted in showing occasionally, Ed Morgan in the role of Pish Tush, a noble, played in a noble manner, Al Hunter played the part of Ni-Bon. He had no lines, but turned his part into one of the best char- acter sketches in the play, Virginia Elliot, Thelma Marshall, and Betty Burns as the Three Little Maids just fresh from a ladies seminary, and lastly, Katisha, an elderly lady of rather decayed vintage, played equally well by Billie-Lee Friedman and Florence Fisher. Everyone connected with the production of the opera is to be con- gratulated on the part he played in making it a success. The cast, stage settings, direction, and the special Japanese dancers all combined to make this operetta, in the opinion of a professional dramatic coach, who was in the audience, one of the best performances of Gilbert and Sulli- van that she had ever witnessed. The business end of the undertaking was ably cared for by Manager Phil Barton and an excellent staff which included Dick Bare, Renato Cassani, and Joe Durein. The cast and staff wish to thank Miss Myrtle Danielson, Mr. Kafka and Stella Cairncross for their untiring efforts to make this oper- etta a success. Especially do they wish to thank Mrs. Hazel B. Hunter for her splendid leadership and inspiration. -..ei 8 6 fx fxfx 4 ORGA fafxxx Ii.

At another meeting held on April 14, the entire program dealt with Pan-American Day. Recently, a short play, Written by the Quintero Brothers, was given before the club. The roles were taken by Gertrude Walker, Rita Downer, Thornton Gapen, Bill Lubbock, and Frank De Luchi.

This organization, to be known as the Sword and Shield Society, was formed to promote friendship and brotherhood among the officers of the unit. Since the club's existence it has not enjoyed a more successful year than it has just completed under the leadership of Cadet Majors Castro and Scheuermann. During the past year the members of the unit enjoyed many social contacts among themselves. Their social gatherings have included many jolly meetings and dinners held at the different members' homes. The society also received a great deal of pleasure from some competitive football with the Non-Corn's Club and other organizations of the high school and community. Late in this term the Sword and Shield Society held a skating party over at Rollerland. They shared this pleasure with the rest of the school, as the society extended an invitation to all the students of the high school.

The Whist party given in February by the club was a financial and social success. Mr. T. B. Hall, an authority on aviation and a teacher in the high school, gave a talk discussing the various methods of finding oneis loca- tion at sea. The club has made several trips to Chabot Observatory, Where Dr. Earl Linsley has shown us many interesting objects in the heavens. Mr. Skaggs, President of the East Bay Astronomical Society, invited the club on May 8 to his private observatory. He gave the club a very interesting talk, and showed us all his astronomical instruments which included an eight-inch telescope.

The cafeteria is headed by Mrs. Duncan, Who has a number of students and help, and every day feeds about S00 students. It cost a great deal of money to run our cafeteria, and the students should try to use it, for if more students used the cafeteria it would be able to give you more service. Next year Mrs. Duncan plans to have a much bigger and better i year, and with the students support she can do this very thing. D D D QD D D D 3..

He paused to rest at a noble door, And played on the tambourine, And the little old monkey danced like mad, In his velvet jacket of green. The great black eyes of the gypsy boy Blazed like the fire of coals. And his satin brown skin, bare to the Wind, Was seen through a hundred holes. His body swayed with the tambourine, And he sang a snatch of a song, And his White teeth gleamed in a smile so gay, Though the day had gone dead Wrong. But the noble door was deaf to his song, And never there dropped any gold, And the wind in the tree tops came with a roar The gypsy boy shivered with cold. He gathered the monkey up in his arms, Close to the tambourine, And the snatch of a song died on his lips, Like Waking from a dream. They trudged through the streets the long, long night, Hungry and having no bed, And when che church bells rang at dawn, The old wizened monkey was dead. Other October days passed by And some strangers came with a start On a gypsy boy lying very still, Still, from a broken heart.

Its objective is to bring into closer contact and sympathy the school and the home. As an indication of the varied enterprises by which this objective is reached, we mention the following activities: C11 Revolving fund: Money is left with Mrs. Fisk, Dean of Girls, and 1VIr. Minium, Dean of iBoys, to assist students in special need of Hnancial aid. C23 Scholarship fund: Fifty dollars are appropriated each year to be used at the discretion of an advisory board for aid of students desiring higher education. C31 R. O. T. C.: Fifty dollars each year is given to the R. O. T. C. unit to send it to the Army-Navy game, played on Armistice Day. Last year our Alameda unit won the silver cup in competitive drill at this game. C45 Social Service: Each year the Asso- ciation appropriates a fund for sending under-nourished children to Summer Camp. This year we were materially assisted by Head Coach Otto Rittler, who sponsored a basketball game, the proceeds of which were turned over to us for this fund. A tag day in March was held for the same purpose. These are examples of the splendid cooperation between the parents and teachers. CSD Donations: These consist of our annual contribution of jellies and jams and other Christmas gifts to Del Valle, a home for tubercular children. Contributions are also made to Red Cross, Boy Scouts and Campfire Girls, and a layette is given each year to the Health Center. The Association participated in the last Circus Day and sold home- made cakes. Also, it had charge of seat sale in the grandstand. Proceeds from these participations went to the High School athletic fund. Later we sponsored a theater party for the baseball team, proceeds from which we used to purchase gold baseballs. These trophies were presented to the team at a dinner given in the High School cafeteria by the Asso- ciation. Officers for 1931 are: President, Mrs. P. S. Barton, First Vice-Presi- dent, Mrs. A. Powell, Second Vice-President, Mrs. A. A. Horwege, Recording Secretary, Mrs. W. K. Morrison, Corresponding Secretary, Mrs. E. S. Goelzer, Treasurer, Mrs. W. T. Belvel, Financial Secretary, Mrs. V. E. Thorp, Parliamentarian, Mrs. P. A. Mulcahy, Historian, Mrs. S. Heller, Auditor, Mrs. W. C. Watson. The Parent-Teachers' Association holds its meetings at the High School the third Thursday of each month. These meetings are open to the public. Our programs, consisting of able speakers and musical num- bers, are always most interesting. MRS. S. HELLER, MRS. A. B.

Early in the term the unit prepared to compete for the Mont- gomery Ward Cup. All the R. O. T. C. units of the Bay region entered the competition for this trophy, which was to be awarded at the Army and Navy game in the Berkeley Memorial Stadium. The companies were judged according to neatness and precision. To the joy of the cadets and townspeople of Alameda, our unit won the cup. On the day following the Army and Navy game, Sergeant Davis, the R. O. T. C. instructor, was taken seriously ill. Not long afterward he passed away. Major Brown and the members of the unit were greatly saddened as they realized that they had lost a close friend. ' The spring term opened with enthusiasm. All the cadet officers were back and there was a full enrollment in the unit. During the preceding spring the R. O. T. C. men had done exceptionally well in the inspec- tion conducted by Colonel Waddel. They had missed becoming an Honor Unit in the Ninth Corp Area by only one-tenth of a point. The inspec- tion this year was conducted by Colonel Pillow, and although the results are not yet known at this writing, it is felt that the men did even better this term than before. On Wednesday, May 6, the R. O. T. C. had its annual Inter-Com- pany Competition. This took place before the public and the students of the school. The unit presented two special features, the Battalion Rifle Drill and the Guard Mount. "BH company was declared Honor Com- pany and winner of the Kiwanis Cup for rifle drill, and also the Chamber of Commerce Cup for platoon drill. Company "A" won the Rotary Cup for Guard Mount and the American Legion Cup for the inter- company rifle shoot. Cadet Lieut.-Colonel Stuart Stephens won highest individual honors. The exhibit was creditable in every respect. THE RIFLE TEAM This year in the rifle matches the team representing our school rfid marvelously well considering they were handicapped by the un- timely death of Sergeant Davis, who had coached the team. In the Na- tional Intercollegiate match our team took first place in the Ninth Corps Area, and seventh in the National. In the Hearst National Rifle Match our team took all the honors for the school. We won first place with a score of nine hundred and fifty-nine points. This fact means a great deal to the school, since our team competed against over five hundred colleges, military schools and the Junior R. O. T. C. units throughout the United States. And so, the name of the Alameda High School has been flashed all over the world. 107 E.-- "T'l fNf'XfNrxfx X, RIFLE TEANI Top Row: M. Hunter, Winsor, Teagarden, Clark, Barnard.

Coach Chris Freeman, who had Carl Young as his assist- ant, kept long hours of practice, and had the team in good shape. But injuries, sickless, and bad "breaks,' seemed to follow the team. Alameda played eight practice games, of which four were won, two tied, and two lost. Of the three Alameda County League games that we played, two were lost. Alameda scored a total of 82 points for the season while their opponents tallied but 46. --f-33113 -1- fNfNfNfxf-XA xl xx XJ xj xl ,'f, -', ,- ,TY-- i x.!g1xf'gjxJx1x! A , X .

In the first quarter the two teams battled on about even terms, but the Ala- meda High boys seemed to be lacking the punch that they had displayed in the last game that we had seen them in QSt. Mary,sj , and soon we began to tire. Dick Bordeaux gained the fans, eye by his spectacular stopping and the breaking up of the Highlanders' plays. The half ended with Piedmont in the lead, as they kicked a field goal in the second quarter. When the second half started our boys were full of fight and all ready to go. We made some good gains, but bad breaks gave the ball to Pied- mont. The teams then went up and down the field, and at the close of the third quarter Piedmont pushed over another score. This time it was a touchdown. Charles Bannworth broke through the opponents, line and blocked the try-for-point, and the score stood nine to nothing. This did not stop our boys, and they came back to fight the Piedmont team all the harder. In the closing minutes of the game we tried desperately to put over a score, but Piedmont, knowing that the time was short fought very hard and our boys were held oif. At this time the gun went off, and the first league game for Alameda was over-the final score being in Piedmont's favor, 9 to O. It had been a good football game. The students turned out to support the team in line style, and one of the largest crowds that ever witnessed an Alameda High School foot- ball game were present to see this game. -, 116 fNf'xfNfNfNfX XJ ,, yxyfxfxfxlyfxl THE BERKELEY game, although the score was rather one-sfded, was a good football game. Berkeley High School should be very proud of its football team, for it was one of the Hnest high school teams a person could wish to see. When the game started it looked as if Berkeley would walk right down to a touchdown, but our boys came to life just at our goal line, and Jack Beach punted out of danger for the time. Berkeley then tried four stabs at our line, and much to their surprise we held them. For the first time in the game, Alameda had the ball where she could try some running plays. After two plays at the line, and a short pass, we made first down, and the Alameda fans went wild with joy. On the next play we tried a pass and Berkeley intercepted it- bringing to an end our chance to score. In five or six plays Berkeley had pushed over the first score of the game, with "Chili" Bertoli doing most of the work. Berkeley started the second quarter by kicking off to us. Throughout this quarter Berkeley held the upper hand, and had it not' been for che great punting of Jack Beach the score might have been much larger Berkeley managed to put over nother score before the half ended to make the score 12 to 0 The second quarter opened with Alameda fighting for dear life The boys managed to hold Berkeley on just about even terms in the third quarter At this point of the game the line was working as one man and Berkeley found it hard to get through Toward the end of this quarter was again missed In the fourth quarter vs e held off the threats of Berke ley until the final minutes of the game when Berkeley scored again t make the score 25 to 0 We can well be proud of our boys for we held Berkeley to the lowest score of their season.

All of the scoring was done in the final minutes of the game, by Captain Smith and Nova. As the timers, gun was out these players fought to get in their last touchdowns for the high school. Richmond put up a good fight but our boys had the upper hand of the battle at all times. The final score was in our favor, 12 to 0. Alameda loses over nine first string players, and a number of second string men this year. A number of these men played their last football game for Alameda High School at this time. Q12 1 v we is The class B Football team did not score up a lot of victories last season, but showed a lor of spirit in their games. The team was coached by Homer Dobbins, former varsity football man, and Captain Jim Simp- son led the men. The two important games, St. Mary's and Berkeley, were both lost, but the team showed a lot of fight and pep. With Berkeley our boys played a very fine game, and for the first half we out-played them. We got as far as their one-yard line but here Berkeley held us, and we lost our one big chance to score. Berkeley had come over with the idea that they could walk right through our line, but much to their surprise, we held them. In the second half Berkeley took to the air, and as most of our back- Held ment were short, they were very successful. 1 18 Eg.-- D D c cc , ij ,N ,X ,-X, fy ,e'Tf5 A24-L-W? , -Q xzxfxjxxxz -1 r, pf'-.,'x.f Top Row: Perenon, Schwartze, Lowry, Breed, Vorheis, Peat, Peacock.

Varsity Basketball THE 1930-31 basketball season was fairly successful at Alameda High. In thirteen practice games played, seven were won. In the Alameda County Athletic League six games were played. This schedule left us with a S00 average. The Hornet quintet tallied a total score of 484 for the season while our opponents caged 442. Head Coach Otto Rittler took charge of the squad at the beginning of the season, until Coach Carl Young, Who assisted Chris Freeman on the gridiron, could take over the Work at the end of the football season. Coach Young is to be congratulated on his good Work in this, his Hrst season at Alameda. Sixteen members of the team are to be graduated this year. This leaves much room for new material. The Class B will provide some ex- cellent talent. We take this opportunity to wish Coach Young all the success pos- sible, and We feel sure the next basketball season will be a bigger and better one under his guidance-Good Luck, Carl. 119 Ea..- m.i' 5'.'Nf,'f?N',..f,,'fx- A xuyfxfxfyzxfxfgf AAXA ,. , w NORMAN VARGAS xy Y gf I Ji 'V E F EL D, X I Q.

Alameda played a hard game, but Berkeley won out in the last few minutes. ALAMEDA 29-RICHMOND 23 Alameda won its first home game of the League. Nizzoli was the star and high-point man, with a total of thirteen points. The game was a thriller and our boys fought hard. ALAMEDA 29-PIEDMONT 25 We played the best game in our career against Piedmont. Louis Nova, better known in football circles, sunk a long shot to win the game and place this school in a tie for Hrst place in the League. ALAMEDA 27LBERKELEY 29 After a good game the week before with Piedmont, the Alameda team seemed "ragged" in this game. Defeat from Berkeley put the team out of running for the championship. ALAMEDA 26-RICHMOND 28 This game was played in the opponent's court before a large crowd. It was a fast, rough game, with a large number of fouls. Alameda took an early lead, but fouls soon forced the regulars out of the game. ALAMEDA 42-PIEDMONT 25 In this game Alameda cut loose. Piedmont never had the lead, and the boys were dropping them from all corners of the court. Class "B" Basketball The Class "B" Basketball team had a colorful, if not successful, season this year. They played a total of twelve games, of which we won five. While the figures do not show victories, all of the games were good. Extra periods were common, and in many cases accounted for the de- feat of the team. In the second Richmond game, three extra periods were necessary to break a tie. Lead by Bill Kint, captain, Bob Gardiner, Dale Peak, and others showed promising varsity material for the future. Tenms '3 I This year a great deal of interest has been shown in tennis, that in previous years was lacking. The team composed of Bill Hill, Jack Morrison, Lawrence Messinger, Henry Bouche, and Leslie Haefner, who acted as their coach, had a very fine season. We played several games and broke about even. We hope that next year we will be able to form a league, and get tennis really going as a sport at Alameda High. 121 EW- YfXfNfxf'xfxfX l 3' di I , XY ,. wi CLASS B BASKETBALL Firsl Row: Hunter, johnson, Stubbs, Coach Jolley.

In the first league game with Richmond, we lost a hard gfought 11 inning game. In our next game We did better, and took our old rivals into camp, by winning 8 to 4. In the second game with Richmond we defeated them, and this put us into the lead for the Class A league. The following H Week we Went to Berkeley, and again we Won from them by the score C of 10 to 5.

Our boys were In baseball, Alameda had a fairly successful season, winning nine of the games played in the practice season, tieing one game, and losing eight. In the Alameda County Athletic League, Hve games were played, of which three were won and two lost. The ball team will have plenty of material for the next baseball season, for a number of veterans will be back to meet Coach Rittler. On the other hand we will lose a number of veterans, among them Captain Vierra, Peacock, Lombardi, Nizzoli, Stark and others. Wfe hope that the ball team will get an other chance to take a trip to some other land, and show the outside world just what kind of ball players Alameda can turn out.

Twenty-five men from Alameda took places in this meet. In the 440 Capt. Hitchings took a first place, and set a new record of 52.5. Joe Thompson was right behind Ray to take a second place. The 880 run was one of the most exciting races that Alameda track fans have ever seen. All of the men entered in the race finished within five yards of the leader. Eddy Walten ran a great race. losing out to Eggert of Piedmont by about a yard. Dick Brace finished third. In both the 100 and 200 Euler finished second, and Hornung third, both men ran great races. In the low hurdles Jack Beach took first place, and Schwertfeger took a fourth. In the high hurdles Hans Schwertfeger did better, and he took second place, to finish right behind Wood of Berkeley, who broke the record. In the mile run We did not do so well, and we finished fourth, Walten looked tired in this race, no doubt he had given a good part of his strength in running the 440. In the pole vault both Marcum broth- ers tied for third. In the shot Calkins and Nova finished second and third, and in the discus Lowery and Westfall finished second and third. Nova set a new javelin record of 165 feet 8 inches and Calkins took third. Taking two places in the broad jump, and winning the relay Cnew recordj.

Chances do not look so good for winning the North Coast Section meet at Redwood City, as Palo Alto has been turning out fast times and lots of Hrst places. The loss of Alden Stanton, three year first string swimmer, was a blow to the team.

Bobbie Schwertfeger MORE AND more the G.A.A. is becoming active in school affairs. Last term the annual Jinx was a big success under the management of Jeanette Fitzsimmons. All those who went to the Roosevelt Hi Play- day agreed that they had a rousing good time. As for this term the girls were guests of the University of California and also of Oakland Hi. About twenty-five girls attended these get-togethers and enjoyed them- selves immensely. As a new feature of the G.A.A., pins were adopted, which proved to arouse a great deal of enthusiasm among the G.A.A. members. Although the spread has not yet taken place, it has been planned to have some field competition before the spread, after which there will be guest speakers. The girls will receive their letter and numerals, as usual. BASEBALL This year, baseball was as popular as ever, it having its full quota of enthusiasts. A new schedule was tried this year-each game being a 127 l C ' ,-x',x',-Q',X ,N ,X yfxfxfxfxfxf - - QQ Q league game, thus affording more competition. It was ably managed by Olga' Flink, and Miss Stockwell proved to be a very good coach. The winning team of this sport was the combined forces of the 1A's and the 1B's. SPEEDBALL The turnout for Speedball this term was not very large, but what they lacked in numbers they made up with lots of enthusiasm. The games were unusually close, and in the final game between the Juniors and the Seniors, only three points stood between the 3AB's and victory. The Seniors won, thus earning their numerals. Dot Eckert managed this sport, and Miss DiVecchio was the coach of this sport. LETTER WINNERS At the end of each term the G.A.A. holds its semi-annual spread, at which numerals and letters are awarded to the lucky girls. Last Novem- ber at the spread, Circle A's were awarded to nine girlsg winged A's to five girls and block A's were awarded to Alwyn Arnold, Grace Ghiorso, Roberta Kneedler, Bertis Talbot and Dot Eckert. For each 300 points over 1200, a star is awarded. Alice Bartlett, Elsie Martenson, Virginia Flett and Betty Crawford received this honor. -...,Z+ 128 Ea..- fxfNfNfXfNfN XJxJx.1x1x1 Q99 KJ I SWIMMING SO FAR this term swimming has been very successful. It is being held at Neptune Beach, and proves to be quite popular. Due to the large turnout, we have two coaches, Miss DeVecchio and Miss Fitzgerald. The meet has not yet been held, so it is still a deep, dark mystery as to who the final winners will be. The girls, however, are practicing. Some are passing the various tests, while others are taking a course in Red Cross Life Saving. It is hoped that many will be able to become members of this organization. CREW As with swimming, the outcome of the crew races are yet unknown. The turnouts have been fairly large, although some have become dis- couraged by the bad weather that always seems to come on Wednesdays. All crews are practicing hard, and it is quite difficult to decide who will be the final winner. The annual crew supper is being planned, which will take place after the final races are over. Mildred Kelber is the man- ager this term, and Miss Danielson is the coach. ICE SKATING Although Ice Skating is a comparatively new sport in the high school, it has many enthusiasts, judging from the number of girls who turned out for it. They certainly had fun slipping and sliding around the Arena. Ice skating is considered only a minor sport at this time, and 25 points are given to those who are out for the sport. -sq 12 9 I c ---i fXf'Nf'xfNfN yjxlyfxfm xx - y1g!y1xJxJ HOCKEY PERHAPS one of the best and most interesting Hockey seasons fin- ished with a bang, having the most exciting game in the history of sports at Alameda High. The team composed of the 3a's, 4a's and 4b,s won by a close margin over the 3b's. The sport was managed by Mary Flett, and coached by Miss Fitzgerald, which probably accounts for the suc- cessful season. The winning team was composed of Alice Bartlett Ccap- tainj, Charlotte Christenson, Dorothy Cooper, Betty Crawford, Ber- nice Fricke, Daisy Hing, Ilse Hoy, Pearl Lee, Bobbie Schwertfeger, Eloise Schubert, Helen Houser, Dorothea Hay, Ina Hunter, Roberta Kneedler, and Olwyn Arnold. STUNTS The stunt team of the Fall '30 made quite a name for itself by put- ting on a splendid act for the High Seniorpheum, following the novel idea of making themselves human golf balls and rolling around on a mini- ature golf course. The girls who took the part of golf balls were: Dorothy Eckert Cmanagerj , Alice Bartlett, Lois Bunn, Edith Derby, Janet Ferren, Olga Flink, Betty Howell, Helen Houser, Margerite Hobbs, Doris Johns, Juanita King, Rebecca McKenna, Mamie Perato, Mary Rainey, Dorothy Sutherland, Ethelyn Seeman, Lorraine Spencer, Bobbie Schwertfeger, and Glory Wfychoff. Miss Fitzgerald deserves a lot of credit for having coached such a good team. 130 Ee-- fNlNlNfNf'x C1 X,-C,'xJ"4..l,.. TENNIS, FALL, '30 IN THE fall interclass tennis elimination tournament, Alice Gibson again succeeded in capturing the laurels, while Frances Glover, her van- quished rival, came in second. Other winners were Ruth Borsuk, Kath- ryn Currier, Alberta Machen, Helen Hauser, and Jean Smeltzer. We rather wonder if there,s hope for anyone else after Alice takes a hand. In the meantime, we are watching and waiting. GOLF, FALL, I3 0 Though the turnout was small among those who qualified, the results made up in quality for the deficit in numbers. Under the efficient tutelage of our poular instructor, Earl Fry, the girls became quite professional, some of them actually shooting under one hundred. RIDING This sport is held each week at the Lake Aliso Riding School at Mills College, under the instruction of Miss Cornelia Cress. At the Oakland Annual Horse Show on February 7th, our repre- sentatives were Edna Furrer, Eleanor Pickersgill, Alice Blinn, and Jane Kahl. This term a novel picnic was held, the participants enjoying a six- hour ride in Sequoia Park. Under the able management of Jane Kahl, a horse show is to be staged later in the term among the girls themselves The Third Annual Lake Aliso Horse Show will be held on Saturday May 30, and will be participated in by several Oakland riding groups Those turning out are Eleanor Pickersgill, Alice Blinn, Edna Furrer Zelda Long, Laverne Kahl, Mary Pond, Jane Kahl Cmanagerj , Hanalla Thomas, Virginia Schultz, Carol Guerin, Frances Manion, Rosemary Collier, and Valora Wylley. CANOEING A new course for enjoyment was opened last term with the com mencement of canoeing, under the able management of Miss DiVecchi0 The turnout was past all expectations. Tournaments will be held among the members next year. This term we were learning the fundamentals We had a wienie and marshmallow roast and a moonlight ride on the lake All those who turned out for this sport seemed to have a wonderful time 131 Ea..- 9 , of this sport. Similar to the crew supper, a canoeing picnic was held. rx rx ' fx W - Y . , L , ,anew-..-.M V - +- Vxfxjxjvxjxy ---Y. XJXIXIX-IX-I' THIS year the basketball season Went over with a bang. More girls than ever turned out for this favorite sport, and some wonderful con- tests Were held.
