1933 VOLUME XXXIV
THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS OF
ALAMEDA HIGH SCHOOL
For the past few years each succeeding ACORN has
been of a stereotyped pattern with little change
being effected from year to year. In this issue, how-
ever, in accordance with the spirit of the 'inew deal"
we have revolutionized the annual completely. We
have created an ACORN new and modernistic in
every respect. We hope that it meets with
your approval. Here it is!!
To the late James H. Burton, affectionately known
as "Jim,', member of the Alameda High School
faculty for a score of years until his recent death,
this annual is gratefully dedicated. "Jim" instruct-
ed in the industrial department and contributed
substantially to the growth of that branch of our
activities. In his years of service he impressed upon
all who knew him the attractiveness of his char-
acter, his complete democracy, and a cheerfulness
of voice and spirit always to be remembered. Ala-
meda High School and the community will
cherish his memory.

I CONGRATULATE the boys and girls
of the Alameda High School that they
are living in this age, when the old order
is passing and they have an opportunity
of helping establish the new.
I have always envied the pioneers.
They made history. It is only the pio-
neers that ever do make history. All
empire westward takes its flight. Conser-
vatism is apt to be only another word
for timidity and self-complacency. Prog-
ress comes through the brave souls that
always look beyond and are never satisfied
-eager souls, dreaming of perfection,
whose "reach exceeds their grasp," as
Browning puts it.
But no pioneering is ever done except
by the spirit of youth, and to the youth
of the world there opens up today a new
opportunity for adventure. We have con-
stantly heard that the whole social order
as well as the economic order is chaotic.
But scientists tell us that our universe is
a constantly expanding one, with new . DR. THOMPSON
worlds beyond. In the world of the mind
and of the spirit the process of development is yet in its infancy.
We cannot again land at Jamestown or at Plymouth Rock. No
longer are we called upon to fight our way across the hostile plains to
the Golden West. But more glorious and unexplored territory in the
realm of Science, Art, Literature, and Service to mankind challenges us.
What our social adjustment will be is a matter of conjecture, but we do
know that the new call is for an age that gives to every man and every
woman what our forefathers hoped for, the right to life, liberty and
the pursuit of happiness-an ideal which is well-nigh forgotten at this
time. To win demands courage, faithfulness, and a new search for
May we all unite in a new spirit of pioneering and blaze the trail
which will lead ultimately to individual and national happiness. Glori-
ous youth, the future is yours. You must win and win nobly. Your
motto must ever be the Latin proverb, "Inveniam viam aut faciam,"-
"I will find a way or make one." Rejoice that the quest is unending!
To the ACORN staff and the faculty members assisting, to the senior
classes which they represent and to their able advisor, Dr. Paul Vigness,
I extend my appreciation for the publication of such a splendid edition
of our Annual.

A. S. A. H. S. Fall ,32
THE FALL administration of ,32 brought before the
student body a diversified brand of entertainment. In a
more serious vein of thought We heard speeches from
Brother Leo of St. Mary,s, who spoke on Barbarianism,
and Dr. Walter Merritt, who spoke on his travels in Russia.
We also heard less formal talks by Major McReady and
Rufe Klawans. Among the musical programs We were
entertained by Del Courtneyis Orchestra and several not-
able singers, the one probably best remembered being
Mr. George Sheller, an Alameda alumnus. Student talent
was represented in selections by Walter Grazzini, Alexa
Coney, Grieg McRitchie, and James Alexander.
One of the outstanding events of the term was a foot-
ball rally at the Alameda Theatre on the eve of the Pied-
On the whole the Fall term of 1932 may be considered
an outstanding success-one long to be remembered.

A. Spring 1933
AFTER A closely contested election for the presidency and other stu-
dent body offices, the following members of A. S. A. H. S. were seated:
Lyle Guslander, presidentg Margaret Craig, vice-presidentg Homer
Helmstein, recording secretaryg Jack Hallinan, financial secretary, and
Donn Smart, yell leader.
The meetings of the term had variety and at times educational quality.
The student body had the honor of presenting such outstanding men
as Colonel John R. White, superintendent of Sequoia National Park, Dr.
Thomas McQuarrie, president of San Jose State Teachers College, and
Professor Watson of the California Institute of Technology Who gave a
most interesting lecture with experiments on liquid air. Bill Miller and
Ben Eastman, both of Stanford University and each an Olympic Games
star, were also present at a meeting.
Due to the conditions of the time and as an experiment, student cards
were reduced from seventy-five cents to fifty cents. This reduction was
met with great approval by the student body.
The student-talent day was a complete success due to the fact that
much unknown talent was discovered.
The student-faculty committee, which arranges student meetings,
functioned smoothly under the leadership of Mrs. Hunter.

"WE FINISH but to begin." How true this is. We finish one task,
only to be confronted with another of equal if not greater importance.
So it is with the graduating class of June '33. Our four years as students
of the Alameda High School are rapidly coming to a close, and We are
now giving serious thought to what we will do in the future. Training
in Alameda High School has equipped us with the ability to meet many
of the serious problems of life, and we, one and all, Want to give a vote
of thanks to the faculty.
In our freshman year we were led by Bill Brock and Terry Hackett.
Joe Beach and Margaret Craig were chosen in our sophomore year as
presidents. This year we held a Soiree, which was Very successful. When
we graduated to the rank of upper classmen we chose Joe Beach and Dick
Downer to lead us through our junior year in which We presented the
Colonial Prom. This proved to be a big success, financially and socially.
At last, in the rank of the high and mighty seniors, we elected Jack
Desch and Dick Downer as presidents. This year We have presented with
equal success, 'iThe Admirable Crichton", The Kermess, and the Senior

SINCE ONE term remains for our illustrious class to complete its
career in these halls of learning, we may safely venture back over our
rocky road of securing an education and point out stepping stones to
As lowly freshmen we selected Jack Johannsen and Hart Benton as
We then achieved the high position of sophs. Bob Eggers was elected
president for our Whole sophomore year.
During our low junior term the presidential office was put in the
hands of Cleveland Riley. Bob Eggers presided over our high junior
class and this term under the managership of Barbara Otto our successful
"Patio Prom" was put over.
Now at last We have safely reached our senior year. Jack Pellerite
is our president and has already proved his Worth. Our senior play,
"Daddy Long Legsi' with Zelda Long and Paul Lindsay playing the lead-
ing roles, has already been proclaimed a success.
With one term remaining before us We do not consider our journey
over. Keep your eyes and ears open for We promise you will hear more
from the illustrious class of December 1933. JEAN FAVIER, Editor.

DURING THE last two terms the class of june, 1934, has been success-
fully led by Willis Cooper and Oscar Sundberg.
A dansant was given last term, managed by Jim Durney, from which
the treasury was greatly enlarged.
This term came the chance all classes wait for, that of presenting
a Junior Prom. In this enterprise a class really shows its worth. There-
fore we offered something unusual in Junior Proms and presented the
"Promenade Moderne". Howard Steinburg was manager, assisted by
Gladys Ross. Anyone who attended will tell you of its great success.
This semester, for the first time, we put representatives from our class
on the Judiciary Board-another reason to increase the feeling of having
"a finger in the pie".
We have been well represented in sports and have given our full co-
operation in any matter which has been required of us. All in all, we
believe we are fully prepared to enter the ranks of seniors next term.

UNDER THE leadership of the above officers, the high freshman class
of Alameda High is just completing its first successful year. Our meet-
ings have not been numerous but have been peppy and interesting.
We held our first dansant in February under the able management
of Paul Schacht.
We hope the remaining three years of our school life here will be as
fl th fi . .

INHERITING A great tradition of leadership from the class which
graduated in December the low freshmen have set out to fulfill the des-
tiny expected of them. In our Hrst term We held four lively class meet-
ings and sponsored a successful dansant. Of the first three advisories in
the school to go 100 percent in student body memberships, two were
from our class. President Arthur Buckley has been assisted by Josephine

LAST YEAR the Block "A" Society fed more than fifty families, or
about two hundred and sixty people, on Thanksgiving Day. Due to the
depression it was hard to raise money, but the members Worked hard and
put the drive over in a big Way.
We had one of the biggest initiations in the history of the Block "A"
Society. Twenty-two new candidates came in and besides having the
regular initiation in the gymnasium, a public initiation Was staged on
Park Street for the benefit of the student body.

members of the committee have endeavored to carry out the purpose of
their association-to beautify the school and keep it neat.
In order to make neatness in the halls a simple matter, certain lockers
at intervals in the hallway have been converted into waste containers.
The many beautiful pictures of the school have been catalogued so
that people can locate and identify them.
Students have been urged to keep away from the lawns and steps
across the street, so permission has been obtained to use a lot on Central
Avenue without fear of a UNO Trespassingn sign. The committee plans
to clear it and place benches on it for the students' use.
The committee has held two very successful dansants under the man-
agership of Jean Favier-successful financially as Well as socially.

THE STAR and Key again leads the organizations of the high school in
membership and activities. More than 375 students Were eligible at the
beginning of the semester. The activities of the club have been numer-
ous, ranging from dansants to evening parties.
Last semester the club completed its term Work by having a success-
ful party in the Little Theatre. Thelma Smith conducted a 12-piece
orchestra as a part of the entertainment. Dance music was furnished
by Chet Vargas' Orchestra. Games and refreshments were enjoyed
This semester We continued our favorable policies. With Mr. Saun-
ders as faculty advisor, we have enjoyed a most pleasant and active term.
A skating party was held at Rollerland and everyone present had a fine
time. We are closing this semester's work by holding another party in
the Social Hall.

serve both to provide entertainment and to bring the French language
into play. Business and good refreshments complete the meetings. At
each meeting is distributed l'Echo du Cercle Francais, the club's own
paper. During the past year we have had on our programs motion pic-

THE CIRCULUS Latinus, Latin Club to you, has had a very successful
term. Some of the activities Were: a dansant, which was a success socially
and Hnanciallyg the hike to Mt. Tamalpais, which was a nice social gath-
ering to which Mr. Daniels carried all the lunches as usual. Our very
distinguished organization is the only one in the school that can boast
of having refreshments at every meeting. The games are very simple
but nevertheless amusing and are participated in by all. The club has
the largest number of active members it has had in recent years. Our
club paper, "Tempora," is one of the features of which the club is proud.

WE ARE pleased to state that during this year the interest in the meet-
ings of the Spanish Club and the attendance have continued without
As usual, the activities have been of a varied nature. At a recent
meeting We had Spanish solos sung by Wilbur Gurley, who Was accom-
panied at the piano by June Maze. A humorous skit, "El Baron y Carlos,',
in which the parts were taken by George Montealegre and Bill Hordness,
amused those present. "Carmela," a favorite club song, Was sung by all.
During the fall term a number of club members Went to San Fran-
cisco to see a Spanish film, made in Spain, and which showed many
phases of life in Seville.
The club officers have worked diligently to keep up the high stand-
ards of the meetings and have now brought the activities of the Spanish
Club for the school year to a close with a "broche de oro."

THE GERMAN Club has completed a year of unique interest. The
first event was an ice skating party with Charles Schwab as our host.
The annual Christmas festival began with German songs by an
A. H. S. alumnus, and featured a comedy, "Die Liebe und das Geld,"
starring Eleanor Siegfried and Leland Wiese. The orchestra was Ernest
Gloe with his accordion. The evening closed with feasting and singing.
In the Spring, Paul Gutleben's father took us on a launch ride and sight-
seeing tour along San Francisco's Waterfront.
For the next meeting the 2b class dramatized the old Ballad of the
Crusades, and presented it as a shadow play.
An evening picnic at a very special spot in the hills, procured for us
by James Dallas, Jr., closed the term.

THE INTERNATIONAL Club of the Alameda High School is a member
of the World League of International Education Associations. Its aim
is to try for a better understanding of peoples of other countries and to
develop toward them a spirit of tolerance and good will. Some of our
members have carried on an exchange of friendly letters with foreign
students for several years.
During each semester interesting and profitable talks about foreign
countries have been presented bv members of the faculty and guests.
For our own entertainment We have held several parties for initiation
of members and inauguration of oflicers.

THE GIRLS, Association is one of the most active and outstanding
organizations in Alameda High School. It stands for the finest and best
in girls, activities and upholds a high standard of friendship among the
girls in the school.
Under the Fall administration numerous and excellent meetings were
conducted. A Girls' Council consisting of the presidents of every girls'
advisory was organized and a movement for the Wearing of middies and
President Zelda Long and her administration furthered the Work
started by Jeanette Fitzsimmons in regard to the Presidents' Council and
the middy and skirt project. In addition, a new policy of social service
work was adopted and baby clothes were made by the girls in sewing
classes, financed by the Girls' Association.
Several very interesting programs Were presented to the girls and on
one occasion to the entire student body. These included addresses by
Dr. Aurelia Reinhardt of Mills College and Dr. Paul Cadman of the Uni-
versity of California.
JEAN THOMAS, Editor.
THE BOYS, and Girls, Glee Clubs have participated in many civic and
school affairs this year, the most important being the Gilbert and Sulli-
van opera, "Pirates of Penzancef' For the first time, the proceeds Were
divided between the student body fund and the music fund. This was
done to help increase the budget and to interest everyone in our musical
productions. The clubs have sung for various church groups, service
organizations, and student body meetings. When the city was asked to
assist in furthering relief for the earthquake sufferers in Southern Cali-
fornia, the Glee Clubs presented a program to the commuters on trains
and ferry boats.
Since our country is steadily growing more choral conscious, we feel
gratified in preparing these students for further participation in this
HAZEL B. HUNTER.
DURING THE last two semesters some really remarkable changes have
been effected in the organization and operation of Alameda's unit of
Reserve Officers, Training Corps. Eihciency and cooperation, those two
essentials without which any large undertaking would be lost, were sup-
plied by the enthusiastic cadets whole-heartedly in all cases. In the middle
of the Fall term, through an Act of Congress, Major Jose Perez-Brown,
professor of Military Science and Tactics, was replaced as head of the
unit by Captain Harold Johnson, U. S. A. The entire group buckled
down to learn the new routine and familiarize itself with its new head.
How well this was accomplished may be seen by the tremendous popu-
larity Captain Johnson has achieved since his arrival here. Since Janu-
ary 1933, some remarkable new ideas have been incorporated into the life
of the unit and have been received with great enthusiasm by all con-
cerned. The entire system of marking attendance was modernized, the
ofhce put on a systematic basis, company rifle teams organized, the idea
of weekly "problem hikesv to the hills installed, and absolute teamwork
stressed throughout. Incidentally the Sword and Shield Society gave its
first Annual Military Ball on May 12 in the gymnasium. The Non-
Com,s Club, under the leadership of Sergeant Merritt Boyer, blossomed
out into a better organization than it has ever been before. During
basketball season, an R. O. T. C. Basketball League was established with
Company "An taking the title.
The annual federal inspection, held in March, was pronounced the
most successful of any yet held in the school, and Colonel Jerome Pillow,
inspecting officer, declared the unit perfect. The competition, a Spring
term event, was unusually different from those of other years, with some
organizations appearing in steel helmets and army equipment plus white
gloves to add smartness. When one considers all that has been accom-
plished, and also the fact that enrollment this time was the highest in the
unit's history, it is not hard to say that this past Spring term was the best
and most efficient from every viewpoint which the R. O. T. C. has en-

honor company, Co. "C" Won the platoon competition and Co. "D" the
rifle match. A number of individual trophies Were also awarded. The
Military Ball, a brilliant success, ended the day.

THE NON-COMS Club, composed of non-commissioned oflicers of
the R. O. T. C. Unit, has just completed a successful year. During the
past year Sergeant Boyer, the faculty advisor, has built the Non-Coms
Club up to its present high standard. One year ago the club was on the
verge of collapse, but since then the club hasibeen thoroughly reorgan-
ized and is now on a paying basis. Bi-monthly meetings are now held at
the homes of the members and refreshments are served at every meeting.
One of the regular parts of the meetings is the radio program, "Sherlock
Holmes," which is always enjoyed by the members. All the meetings are
held in a strictly military manner.
A dansant was held in the Fall semester that Was a financial benefit
to the club. This semester a rifle shoot was held. This also was of finan-
cial aid to the club. Next year We hope to increase our enrollment and
become the largest club in the school.

ALAMEDA 01PIEDMONT 13
A LARGE number of injuries sustained in the "battle of the century"
a Week previously with Berkeley, probably robbed the Hornets of a
chance to successfully combat the Highlanders. With both line and
backfield completely out, the coaches had a hard time gathering to-
gether a team to put on the field. Only the accurate punting of Joe
Beach kept the visitors from putting the Hornets to rout. On the offen-
sive Helmsrein worked excellently in the signal-calling department while
Herman Pete was the spark plug of the attack.
ALAMEDA 0-BERKELEY 14
This contest will always stand out to loyal Alamedans as perhaps
the finest of the series of Berkeley-Alameda games. It packed more
thrills and excitement inside its limit than any game this season, what
PETE SKINNER BEACH HELMSTEIN
with long passes, punts, fumbles, and dashes through the line by ambi-
tious gridmen of both institutions. The Hornet offensive functioned
beautifully but was at a disadvantage against the heavier Berkeleyans.
The line-smashing tactics of Hugh Smith and Herman Pete, "The Mid-
night Express," coupled with the punting of Beach and the headwork of
Helmstein on offense had the Yellowjackets guessing more than once,
while Alameda's plucky line did their best to halt the ramblers from
the college city. All in all, the spectators experienced a thrill a minute
from the kickoff to the final gun.
Probably due in a large part to the fact that a number of the finest
ball carriers and linesmen on the team were taken by graduation, the
1932 Varsity football team did not measure up to expectations in Win-
ning ability. However, it more than made up for this lack, in sheer
tenacity and magnificent Hghting spirit which stood them in good stead
when they Were in the shadows of their own goalposts. Nevertheless,
despite the poor showing they made in practice contests, those two
fiercely fought A. C. A. L. contests will forever live in the minds of
students to commemorate a team of real fighters who struggled valianrly
and hopefully to the Hnal whistle.

Coming through a fast season against some tough opponents, the
Class "BU football team did themselves proud with three victories, one
tie, and two defeats to their credit. This squad developed players worthy
of the Varsity and gave each one of their opponents a run for their
money. Their power may be realized when one sees that they scored
six touchdowns in four games, only being held scoreless by the strong
San Leandro team in the initial scrap of the season, and by the ever-
powerful Berkeleyans. The coaching ability on the part of Lewis Jolley
made for a successful season. Players who proved themselves stars were
Corbin Burbank, Tom Nason, Joe Cima, Stan Noyes, Frank O'Brien,
Norman Johnson, and Spencer Archer.

PROBABLY DUE in a large part to their lack of practice and loss of
stars by graduation, the Hornet mermen did not show up as Well as ex-
pected in the regular practice season. They cannot be judged from these
performances as they began swimming in meets as soon as they turned
out, Without any time for concentrated practice. A sensational thrill
of the Palo Alto meet was the shattering of the North Coast relay record
in the time of 59.1 by Ralph Gilman, Warren Smith, and Roy Siem.
Even as this article goes to press the A. C. A. L. swimming meet remains
to be competed in, and it is hoped that the Hornets will have improved
by then enough to be serious contenders in this event.

WHEN THE A. C. A. L. opened the consensus of opinion was doubt-
ful as to whether the Hornet basketball teams stood a chance or not. Up-
setting the dope, they started off with a bang by decisively beating the
Highlanders by a 39 to 34 score. Following a loss to the ancient enemy,
Berkeley, the home team stole a march on the Richmond Oilers to Win
29 to 28. However, the last half of the league fared hard with Alameda
with each game being lost after heart-breaking effort seemed to put
victory within grasp. Despite defeat, several promising stars were de-
veloped, namely: Herman Pete, Bill Reid, Bill Brock, and Bill Gregory.

Dlssvms THE fact that they won but a third of their A. C. A. L.
games and a quarter of their practice contests, the Alameda "BD basket-
ball squad was really a classy little team when one considers the sad
truth that not one veteran returned from last year's A. C. A. L. cham-
pions. Coach Jolley was forced to struggle along with new and untried
material, and he succeeded in molding it into a smooth-running machine.
Among the teams to fall against the Hornet babes Were: Piedmont,
McClymonds, Castlemont, and San Leandro. However, the strong out-
Hts of Richmond and Berkeley proved just too much for the home team.

AFTER A successful practice season in which they Won eight games
and lost but twice to high school teams, the Alameda baseball team
came up fast to take the A. C. A. L. championship with a clean sweep
of all four games. This year's team developed some champions who
will long be remembered at the school for their playing ability and ex-

treme coolness. Among these are Joe Church, Elmer Sandahl, Frank
Medaglia, pitcher with eight straight victories to his credit, and Don
Bernal, Alameda sultan of swat. This team, working with machine-like
precision, cleaned up all local competition and threw a scare into several
highly-touted college nines. Several scouts from Paciiic Coast teams
have been looking over some of the boys and some of them may Win a
berth in professional baseball.
The last game with Berkeley proved the most thrilling, with Bernal,
Ashley, and Sandahl connecting with home runs to cinch the game for
Alameda at 9 to S and capture the A. C. A. L. for the Hornets.
The Richmond game saw Alameda Winning its fourth straight league
contest by a score of 5 to 4. The outstanding performers in this contest
were Herman Pete and Doug Hooper. Pete did the heavy hitting while
Hooper pitched a fine game.

ALAMEDA HIGH enjoys the distinction of being the only public high
school in the United States that boasts a rowing crew, shells and equip-
ment. Through the courtesy of "Ky" Ebright and the University of
California two shells were obtained, and during the year a strong crew
was developed under the coaching of Lee Cavanaugh, an alumnus of
During the Fall term two races were staged-one with Sacra-
mento Junior College freshmen and the second with California second-
string frosh. Alameda won both races. In the spring term the crew
met with stiffer competition. It raced the first string crew of Sacra-
mento J. C. at Sacramento and lost this race by ten feet, due to a mis-
understanding as to what was the Hnish line. A week later these crews
met, with the addition of the California first-string frosh, in a hot race
on the Alameda estuary speedway. California, Sacramento and Ala-
meda came in in the order named.
Members of the Fall crew were Bert Dignon, Herbert Punches, Lane
Theriault, Leigh Jones, Mark Battersby, Bill Whelan, George Storkman,
and Bob Anderson. In the Spring term graduations were replaced by
Terry Hackett, Arvid Peterson and John Love. Bill McCall, coxswain,
was the "spark plug." Ned Farrell was the crew substitute.

THIS YEAR,S track squad suffered badly by graduations-losing such
stars as Dick Brace, Jack Hornung, Elden Rice, and Jack Westfall, and
Coach Jolley was faced with the task of turning last year,s second team
men into good varsity men and possible winners. The practice season
was spent in developing some place winners for the big A. C. A. L.
meet, and only one meet was lost to a high school squad. The team
at the end of its season of practice games, had as products of its Work:
Les Marcum, Lewis Adams, Minoru Iwahashi, George Kido and other out-
A. C. A. L. MEET
In the 1933 A. C. A. L. track meet, held at Edwards Field, U. C., the
Hornet cindermen did not do as Well as last year when they captured
the championship, due to previously mentioned reasons. Although our

men gave the best in them, Alameda was forced to take a third place at
33 points behind Berkeley's 50 and Piedmont's 372 points. The Oilers
were decisively beaten, taking only IOM points. The high point of the
meet was the record-breaking vault of Les Marcum, 1932 A. C. A. L.
champion, who sailed over the bar at 12 feet 6 inches to better his own
record by half a foot.
NORTH COAST SECTION MEET
For the third successive year Alameda has won the N. C. S. meet.
First place winners were Captain Marcum, George Haller, and Minoru
Iwahashi. Other point winners were Teshima, Lunardi, and Ucovich.
Scoring a total of 202 points Alameda climaxed che season with an im-
pressive victory after the defeat by Berkeley and Piedmont in the A. C. A. L.
CLASS "B" TRACK
This year,s Class "B" track squad did rather better than their bigger
brothers, the varsity, in the annual A. C. A. L. meet when they followed
closely on Berkeley's 45 points with a score of 41. Piedmont brought
up the rear with 33 points to their credit. In the 300-yard dash George
Sundby smashed the old record and hung up a new one of 35 seconds.
The broad jump record fell before the prodigious leap of George Kido
who sailed for 19 feet 10 inches, and Joe Beach hurdled the 120 for a
new mark of 14.4 seconds.

IN ITS seventh year of competition and its first in A. C. A. L. circles
the Alameda golf team under the coaching of Willis Minium seems to be
definitely on the Way to its first A. C. A. L. championship. As this is
written the only serious obstacle in the Hornet,s way is Piedmont. The
fellows have cleaned up every bit of competition they have encountered
except over Berkeley and Richmond earlier in the season. They will
have to stage a play-off on the Alameda course between the two leaders
to decide the champions. However, if the Scots lose to either of the
others, Alameda will succeed to the title and vice versa. A number of
students will also compete in the annual Tribune golf tournament, held
late in May. Such stars as Frank Miller, Ed Minium, Bob Andrus, and
Bill Hunter make Alameda's chances for the title just that much more

AFTER COMING through a successful practice season Coach Lewis
Jolley's netmen faced the A. C. A. L. matches with plenty of confi-
dence and an excellent chance of coming through on top. However, the
racqueteers did not reckon with the stars of Berkeley and Piedmont and
so were defeated rather badly. Nevertheless stamina and spirit were
not lacking and the absolute essential, good sportsmanship, was always
present. The Hrst team consisted of: Morrison, Noyes, Spees, Watson,

SUCCESS! THAT is the keynote of this year's Girls' Athletic Associa-
tion's program. Under capable leadership the girl athletes participated
in one continuous round of activities. Among these in the fall term
were: a Welcome party to the freshman girls, a play day visit to Hay-
ward Union High School, one to the San Francisco State Teachers,
College, and the semi-annual Girls' Association Spread.
The Spring program was ushered in with a highly successful dansant
after which the girls enjoyed a Sports Day at the University of Cali-
fornia. These events led up to the big gesture of the season, the Jig-
Saw Play Day, in which the Alameda girls acted as hostesses to the East
Bay Federation of Girls' Athletic Associations. Bringing the year's
acgviiies to a close, the girls attended a Play Day at San Mateo High
Both in the sports and the social activities the G. A. A. has striven
to carry on the highest ideals of sportsmanship and traditions of the

THIS year riding has attained its greatest success as a Girls' Athletic
Association sport. Under the management of Carol Guerin and Ann
Arnold, this sport has had the largest turnout in its history. Fifteen to
twenty girls came out regularly on Thursdays. The total sign-up included
about thirty, five of whom were enthusiastic faculty members. Sequoia
Riding Academy was chosen as an ideal riding school. C. S. F. points are
given for this sport as well as G. A. A. points, which are given for passing
certain requirements for the three classes: beginners, intermediates, and
advanced. The beginners spend most of the time in a well-equipped ring
where they learn the ABC's of riding, while the intermediates may stay
in the ring for further instruction or venture out on the trail under the
supervision of an instructor. The advanced class is allowed to ride the
trail without an instructor.
Carol Guerin and Ann Arnold exhibited Master Mars and Collegian,
two Hackney ponies, at the Mills College Horse Show on April 28 and 29.
The riding group has learned a great deal, and skillful horsemanship
has been developed in some of the individual members.

Excerpts from a High Senioris Diary
SEPT. 7, 1932-I'm exhausted! Been working so hard on the Fresh-
man Reception committee but, at last, it's over! Margaret Craig did
the managing. It was fun seeing those infants out on parade-but then
I guess it hasnit been so very long since I was only a freshman.
1 1 1 1
SEPT. 12-Startling news! That bi-monthly scandal sheet, "The
Oak Leaf," made its first appearance today. A keen issue! I guess that
this time our newspaper is here to stay.
1 1 1 1
SEPT. 23-'lim quite inspired by our low senior play, "The Ad-
mirable Crichton," which our class presented tonight. Dick Downer
managed it. Between Doris Galvin,s "English accent" and Jack Desch's
"butlery bearing," we got a lot of laughs out of an otherwise serious play.
1 1 1 1
OCT. 21-Just a line before retiring. My feet are simply killing
me, but I never have had such a good time as I've had this day and night.
First, the Alameda vs. Berkeley football game. Though we did lose,
our fellows certainly put up a good fight. And then to cap the climax,
the High Juniors' Patio Prom.
Ooops! pardon the yawn-I'm just too sleepy to write any more.
Anon . . .
1 1 1 1
OCT. 22 CSaturday morningj-Dreamed about the Prom last night.
It seemed very real. Decorations in that torrid Spanishy manner, music
by Ceremelli's orchestra in such "Gay Caballero" costumes and the best
What romance dancing in the patio of a Spanish hacienda. Barbara
Otto is certainly a clever manager.
1 1 1 1
DEC. 16-Went to the graduation of the class of December 1932
last night and to their Senior Ball tonight, and am tired but happy.
Jim Brye managed the ball, and whoever did the decorations surely
made wonderful use of his Christmas trees and snowflakes. Feldman
and Jacobsen's orchestra and, of course, my Tom completed this won-
derful evening. if
JAN. 3, 193 3-Well, back to the old grind! The Freshman Recep-
tion on Jan. 26, to be managed by Jean Favier, is the first social event
and then-off to a merry season!
1 1 1 1
FEB. 14-We won the Alameda vs. Richmond b-asketball game and
are we all speechless and I mean literally, too. CPage the cough drops.j
Imagine winning the game by one point, and that in the last few minutes
of play. Many more games like this and we,ll have the championship.
1 1 1 1
MAR. 17-Enjoyed myself thoroughly tonight at the low senior play,
"Daddy Long Legs." Mr. Carlyle, our customary coach, made a reg-
ular orphan girl out of Zelda Long, and Paul Lindsey quite startled us
with his "man of the world" performance. Must have been a financial
as well as a social success.
1 1 1 1
MAR. 24-Another keen Junior Prom tonight! They called theirs
"Promenade Moderne"-and it was! Howard Steinberg, Gladys Ross,
Miss Sherman and their committees certainly created a veritable roof-
garden out of our good old gym and with Feldman-Jacobsen's orchestra,
one really felt as though this were New York, not little old Alameda.
1 1 1 1
APRIL 7-They say that the operetta, "The Pirates of Penzancef,
Went over beautifully tonight. I went yesterday to the matinee per-
formance Cfirst time they ever had onej . The voices were divine. Ruby
Yoshino, Bob George, Walter Grazzini, Barney Healy, the trio, and
Thelma Marshall, took the leads and plus an exceptionally fine chorus
they put on a musical entertainment that made us proud of the music
department, Mrs. Hunter, and her staff of teachers and students.
1 1 1 1
APRIL 21-Talking about surprises! Our hi-senior class certainly
pulled a good one this term. Instead of the customary boring Seni-
orpheum we put on a Senior Kermess, managed by Elias Welch and
Betty Andrus. It was a real carnival-serpentine, confetti and all that
goes with it. For an inexpensive dance with a good orchestra we all
certainly had a good time. Tom is such a dear!
APRIL 28-I'm still cold from the A. C. A. L. track meet this after-
noon at Edwards Field. Though they tried hard, our boys didn't win
-but, Les Marcum, that superb pole-vaulter, broke a record by doing
12 feet 6 inches-and if we aren't all puffed up?
I've been practically eating, thinking, and sleeping uflowersv for the
past week and now our first student flower show is over-till next year.
Our committee finally did choose the prizes-they were potted plants
which the florist called gloxinia Cor som'nj but they overcame even
that handicap and were lovely. We had been doubtful if boys' ad-
visories would enter anything, gut gee! you ought to see those big, husky
athletic fellows entering the most delicate of exhibits and being most
solicitous about water and arrangements of their plants.
With our flower display, the art exhibit and the evening program
tonight, Public Schools Week certainly was finished with a flourish.
1 1 1 1
MAY 12-Oh! Those uniforms! Many are the hearts that are flut-
tering tonight after going to that keen military ball. Girls in formals,
fellows in uniforms. What a sight! A galaxy of flags and guns and
balloons made a most elaborate display. Paul Lindsey managed this end
of it, I think. Lewis Burwell, manager, his committees and the Sword
and Shield Society are responsible for the first dance of this kind-
What a success!
1 1 1 1
JUNE 7-Oh diary! Tomorrow comes "the" night-graduation!
My head's in a whirl-I can't eat-I can,t sleep-Fm a nervous wreck!
Suppose I should stumble up the steps? Suppose they forget my
diploma? Suppose . . .
Friday night is the ball. Steve Rogers and Betty Andrus have worked
out an Oriental idea-quite fantastical, you know-Oooh! But
tomorrow! Tomorrow night I'll graduate!-Tomorrow will witness
the graduation of "the best class that ever . . . "

A VERY definite sentiment pointing to the reestablishment of the
school paper took shape a year ago, and as a result of popular demand
the "Oak Leaf" was reborn. With President Travis Winsor fathering
the sheet as the major project of his administration, with faculty advisor
Franklin Cummings throwing himself heart and soul into the r6le of
godfather, and with the administrative board generously appropriating
the necessary funds, it needed only the loyal and sincere efforts of the
staff of student editors and managers to make the paper the brilliant
success that teachers and students alike have whole-heartedly voted it.
Several factors have contributed to this enthusiastic response. For
one thing the paper has been regular in appearance. For another, it has
consistently sought to appeal to the entire student body rather than to
any clique or faction. Willingness to learn by experience has proved
of great advantage. Careful attention to make-up has reaped its har-
vest of praise. Probably most important of all, however, has been the
policy of balancing the serious with the gay, the personal with the im-
personal, the general with the special.
Jack Hallinan and Bart Harris shared the editorial responsibility in
the Fall term, While Lewis Burwell managed the finances. In the
Spring term, Gordon Paetz has served as editor-in-chief and Ed Temple-
ton as business manager. The girls have also been ably represented on
the staff, especially in the work of Jean Thomas and Frances Echen-

Graduating Seniors, Attention!
These are times of economic unrest. As prospective graduates it is
time to think of what provisions you are going to make for your future
security. Thousands of college graduates, as well as high school graduates,
are doomed to a life of mediocrity and struggle because the "white-collared"
class far out-numbers the available jobs.
Do you want to train yourself for an occupation which finds a ready
application? Would you like to have your life-work characterized by
service to humanity as well as by pecuniary reward? Then consider the
healing art as a profession. It will pay you to investigate the training
offered by the Pacific College of Chiropractic and Drugless Therapeutics
to prepare you for this profession.
Make an appointment with the Dean of the College by telephone, and
he will explain the benefits of the College more fully. A S4-page pros-
pectus of the College will be given free on personal application.
