Goodbye dear Hamilton.
Three years youv'e stood by me in work and play,
I leave you now to go forth on my journey,
And I look forward to sonic future day.
Some future day perhaps I'll visit you.
N ew students gather in thy halls where once I stood,
And I will greet them with a cheery face,
Because they stand for al11that's pure and good.
And as each 9A student leaves you,
They'l1 leave with deep regrets the same as I.
But all must go when it comes their turn,
Memories Staying with them tin they die.

6 6 EADY for school?"
"Have a nice vacation ?"
"Goodbye summer sports! ' '
"I surely hate to start in again!"
All old and familiar remarks heard on
the first day of school. A month crammed
full of interesting eventsg a month fcr mak-
ing good impressions. But one big mistake
was made: some one forgot to "spit out
his wax," and over thirteen hundred
gumchewers were called into the audito-
rium to be reminded that vacation was over.
As " per usual" speedball held sway
this month, and we had many hot and ex-
citing games. The Eaglets brought home
. Then there was Hollowe'en, and what
Pumpkin pie, student council party,
and a social welfare drive to raise funds
and food for the less fortunate families,---
were the features that marked the third
month of school. Then, Oh, boy! came
Thanksgiving and its vacation.
Snowi Verdant hills were now snow-
clad. What wouldn't we have given for one
good snowball fight!
Did you ever see a real doll show?
We did. The Girls' league attempted and
successfully accomplished a high class doll
show for the benefit of the Children's
The dramatic classes staged the annual
Christmas play. Everyone left school with
the spirit of Christmas in his heart.
'Ibis is the time to make resolutions,
but before the 31st we usually find out that
it is much easier to break them. We almost
had a duplicate of last year's flood. How-
ever, the water wasn't deep enough to call
out the gondolas.
Basketball season started.
Scholarship banquet, held at the Club
California, was enjoyed immensely by
members of the "Brain Trust."
The operetta proved to be the crowning
achievement of this semester's work. It was
a great success.
Someone is always bound to be disappoint-
ed when February comes around with its
report cards, but, on the whole, the school
was well satisfied and a large 9A class
graduated. We had a "lot 0' fun" out of
the 7 B's who just "grabbed up" the elevator
tickets and library passes. On top of that
we were treated to an afternoon vacation
when the teachers went to the yeariy 1e-
ception given in honor of Supt. Stephens.
March has ever been pictured as a roar-
ing lion and pictures of blowing hats and
blustering days are always used to illus-
trate it. After each "Santa Ana" the "pet"
diversion of the 9A's was to draw pictures
in the sand before the teacher's duster
swooped across each desk.
At last Hamilton has a motion picture
Oh! Boy! And the annual staff was
elected. Everyone was satisfied on. the
whole except those chosen.
The weather always warms up in April
-if that mlttars any. Ani it's always sup-
posed to rain whether it does or not. Educa-
tional Week and the student Council party
were the main events of this month.
May is the time of grunions. They are
very good to eat, but, if you eat too many,
you will not live to see another May.
The annual Tract Meft was the most
outstanding event of this month. Our boys.
did their best -so did our girls.

E, the 9A and senior class of the summer of 1928 of Alexander Hamilton
Junior High School do hereby announce, proclaim and insist that this isf
our first, last and only publication under the title, heading and name of
last will and testament. Y
First, we leave to our principal the memory of our smiling, earnest faces
Our belligerent classmates also leave to him the worn spot on his office carpet in
fond appreciation of his untiring efforts.
Second, to our vice-principal we leave a brand new police whistle recently
procured from Nick Harris, Los Angeles detective and radio speaker of KFI.
We leave him this whistle on the condition that he does not use it unnecessarily
or let the children play with it, V
Third, to the dean of girls. we will all the trials of selecting a suitable
graduation gown for the girls of the next 9A class.
Fourth, to our counselor, we bequeath all the tribulation that the members
of a troublesome 9A class can invent in regard to their program. '
Fifth, we endow our attendance clerks with all original alibis and excuses
for being tardy or absent.
Sixth, to the sponsor of the Boys' League, who has labored so valiantly
to obtain the motion picture machines we leave, as a pleasant CD pastime, the
duty of securing a radio, with a loud-speaker for every classroom.
Seventh, to the faculty as a whole, we leave our sincere thanks for their zeale
ous efforts in our behalf and the loyalty of all persons whom we can influence
We also extend to them the privilege of using any method fauthorized by the
Chief of Policel to instruct the future 9A's in the way they should go.
Eighth, to the employees of the cafeteria, we do solemnly present our total
supply of 1,325 students with the earnest desire that they may be moulded into
just as robust individuals as we are. For this purpose we also bequeath to the
cafeteria one quintillion f1,000,000,000,000,000,000J calories and vitamines.
Ninth, to the complete Student Body, we bestow thirty-seven Student Patrol
badges: thirty-three memberships in the Scholarship Society: eight offices in the
Student Council, fifty-four parts in the annual play or operettag nine position
helping in the library: nine privileges helping in the office: twenty-two much
envied offices of study-hall monitors: two girls champiohship titles: seventeen
places in the orchestra: and seven editorships on the "annual" staff.
Tenth and last, to the 9B's, we leave our vast responsibilities, the front
seats in the auditorium which some of them tried to occupy this year, the duty
of upholding our standards by reprimanding gum-chewers, hall-racers, chatter-
boxes, unofficially appointed class orators, late students and budding artists who
exercise talent by making caricatures of study hall teachers.
We therefore nominate, appoint, petition and empower the driver of the
3:30 Lang bus to be the executor of this, our last Will and testament.

The essential ingredients of a senior high school sophomore
are as follows: '
First, take a human shaped mold and put these materials in it,
And you can make a sophomore in a minute:
Take a cup of J. B. Stone's good sense,
With some fun Arthur Parra presentsg
Doris Courtiour's wit, to make it light,
Josephine Hayter's brillancy to make it bright:
Louise Daugherty's smile that never comes off,
With Cleo Blogett's quieteness that helps make the sophg
Then take Harold Slamovitch's cheerfullness for a flavor,
And Johnny Ball's good will for a savor.
Mary Lindsay's modesty surely meets all demands.
Next take Nona Straughn's helpful hands,
And Cora Mclnnis' generous nobility,
With Edwin Yockey's business ability,
Then add Jack Riordan's manners so nice,
With Myron Henry's monkey shines for spice.
Then be sure to add if you want prosperity,
Opal Finn's sincerity.
Now mix all this stuff,
And you'll have a genuine sophomore, sure enough!
Hantiltonps illlctiv ities
AYS are drifting into years and we,
the school children of today, are
rapidly developing into the young
men and women of tomorrow. We have
probably not realized the rapid develop-
ment in our education during the preced-
Hamilton has offered usa great many
things which, perhaps, we have not real-
ized. Among the most beneficial subjects
to every student are the languages, Eng-
lish and Spanish. English is required and
is taken during the seventh, eighth and
ninth grades, while Spanish is an elective
and may be taken only by ninth grade
Proper English is essential in everyday
life: and Spanish, although a foreign lang-
uage, is spoken extensively throughout Cal-
ifornia and is therefore beneficial to al-
most every student. Both English and Span-
ish languages play a prominent part in
other nations. If a person can speak English
and Spanish, he may converse with the
people of two-thirds the territory of the
Mathematics has played a prominent
part in our developement. This includes
Algebra, Arithmetic, and Business Math-
ematics. It has developed our minds to be
alert, keen and clear.
Social Science and' Citizenship have
helped the students in a great many ways.
It has taught loyalty, patriotism, honesty,
and the other qualities which go to make
the proper kind of man or woman.
Music and art have developed talent
which would have otherwise been lost. It
has tended to create a respect for beauty,
art and music. Different clubs have been
organized through these two subjects, and
it has given a great many talented boys and
girls a chance to display their ability. This
' 3' '."
is what the schools have tried to do, and
Hamilton has certainly succeeded.
General Science is in a class of its own.
It possesses many beneficial things of which
we should have taken advantage. It teaches
us the fundamentals of our surroundings
and of the wonderful things of which our
world is composed.
i The shops have bee J installed in the pub-
lic schools only a few years. Hamilton is one
Of the few schools possessing a variety.
Every opportunity has 'been offered us
through the shops. They have tended to
direct a great many boys towards their life
work. This is the greatest aim of a school,
and a great portion of such decisions have
been made through the shops. They have
the most modern equipment and therefore
have afforded the students the best of
knowledge and experience.
Home Arts have afforded the girls op-
portunities. They have been taught in the
best manner possible the many arts in caring
for the home. '
Physical Education is very beneficial
to the boy or girl. It has ,tended
to develope his health. His strength in
body has been improved. It has also
taught us qualities which are as necessary
to a boy or girl as English, Spanish,
Algebra or any other subject. That is the
moral Side of our physical ability. It has
taught us to be clean in speech and to be
sportsmanlike. It has taught us to co-oper-
ate with one another.
All these qualities found in the different
subjects compose the real upright, loyal,
patriotic, honest. home loving American
citizen. They have developed our mental,
moral and physical ability to the utmost, so
now We must make use of this ability and
of these rich qualities which we should
treasure so dearly. We, the students of
Hamilton, should appreciate these many
wonderful opportunities of which, few
schools can boast.

ANY people have an idea that being
a member of a Glee Club means one
period a day of pleasure. Of course
it is a pleasure to be in the Girls' Glee and
to retain your place in it you must measure
up to certain musical standards and be will-
ing to work hard.

UR Music Department assisted by
practically every department in the
school this year put on an operetta as
an "all school project." The orchestra play-
ed the opening overture and between-act
numbers and the singing and many of the
speaking parts were taken by the Boys'
and Girls' Glee Clubs and Chorus. The
other performers were furnished by the
Dramatic and Physical Education Depart-
ments. While over two hundred students
took the actual stage parts before the
audience, hundreds of others not seen by
those who witnessed the operetta. were
busy for weeks making the beautiful
costumes and working for the success of
the operetta in many different ways.
The operetta was considered, by many
who saw it, to be the best of its kind ever
given by a Junior High School. Gorgeous
scenic effects designed and painted by the
art department and constructed in the wood
shop, artistic costumes made by the home
art classes and dramatic work-shop, gay
dancing and clever acting combined to
make it frist in the scale of school produc-
The business side of the operetta was al-
so a success.From the balance of the money,
after all expenses were paid, sweaters were
bought for the Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs
and Orchestra.The remainder of the money
was put in the Student Council fund,
Why can't we always be happy?
Why is it we have to be sad?
Why is it this world is so sinful?
And why are so many things bad?
Why are we not always joyful?
Why do we not always do good?
Why this world could be just as jolly,
Why! I'm sure God meant that it should.
So let's try each one to be happy.
Why not pass it on to the next?
Why Ithink if we tried-'twould be worthy
So let us each one do our best.

England and my sisters were sent over as
soon as it could be arranged. The boat on
which they came over was sunk on its
It was not often that I saw my father
as he was in Bramshot Camp at the south
of England, while we were at the sea-port
town of Blackpool, Lancashire. When fa-
ther did come home we would all gather
around him and listen to the stories he
would tell us of his soldier life.
On clear days standing on the cliffs at
the sea front one could readily see the out-
line of the coast of France. I clearly recall
a large hotel not far from where we lived,
on top of which was a huge dome of gold.
When the war was on, it was discovered
that the Germans could see this dome very
plainly on clear days, from France: so by
order of the English government this dome
was painted a dull grey, hiding it from the
seeking eyes of the enemy.
Every house was ordered to have lights
out a little while after dark as the Zeppe-
lins hovered over head and all the houses
were provided with dark green curtains to
shut out all the light from the windows.
To make things a little easier a plan was
started which was called Daylight Saving.
By this method the clocks were set ahead
one hour, thus making the time to get up
one hour sooner and the retiring hour also
another hour sooner: this was the same
number of hours each day, but one rose
earlier and retired earlier.
I remember very clearly going to
visit the camp where my father was staying.
It was here I tasted my first corn, as corn
is not found in England. I thought it a
great delicacy and was delighted with it. A
soldier friend of father's and mother's, call-
ed Sid,would often take me on his shoulder
and walk with me thus, while walking with
father and mother under the beautiful
chestnut trees along an old lane near by.
Sid was a wonderful singer and I remember
his favorite song was "Turn Back the
Universe and Give Me Yesterday". How
happy things would have been if only the
days of yesterday could have come back,
but it was not to be. Poor Sid was sent to
the battle field and in three weeks we re-
ceived word saying that he was dead. I
was not more than 6 or 7 years old when I
knew him, and yet it seems but yesterday
when he walked with me on his shoulder
under the beautiful chestnut trees of that
old English lane.
Another incident that comes to me was
when mother and I were in London. We
were staying in a large hotel, and it was
late at night. I was fast asleep and mother
left the room, leaving me in charge of a
lady, while she went down stairs just out
side toa little store near by. She did not
expect to be gone over one or two minutes.
Imagine her horror when upon trying to
return to the hotelaburly policeman known
as the English "Bobby" stopped her in her
path and told her in a hasty way
to hurry immediately to the "Tube, " this
being an underground subway of London
railway. Try as she might to return to me
she was pushed into the subway and
there, packed in with hundreds of other
human beings, she spent most of the night,
while the bombs thundered over head and
sparks of fire lit the air.
When mother finally was allowed to go,
she hastened terrified lest I should be killed,
scarcely noting the ruins of the once grand
London shops around her. She hastened
back to where the hotel was, hardly
thinking that it would still be there, but it
was, and so was I. I had slept like any tired
child all through the air-raid and had never
even known of all the tumult around me.
The next day mother took me and showed
me the ruins of all the buildings around the
hotel and all over London. Huge glass
windows were lying broken in the streets
and many buildings were blown up.,The
London Hospital, where thousands of
wounded soldiers lay suffering, was still
standing although the whole of the front
hadbeen blown out. I shall never forget
the once ieautiful part of London now
almost shattered by the menacing hands
of the enemy.

Then came the grandest news of all, the
Armistice on November 11,1918. When Eng-
land heard that the war was ended, there
was silence all over the country that lasted
for a minute, a silence so wonderful that it
spoke of the thankfulness of the end. It
spoke more than would have all the guns
of peace or the flags and bugles if all had
tried to rejoice at the outcome of the war.
On November 11, each year, England
remains still in memory of the sons of Eng-
and who died for England's glory. All is
still for one minute. England will never for-
get the first time of such a stillness for it
was then the Armistice was signed and all
the world was once again on friendly terms.

FTER parting with our friends and rel-
atives at the station, we left the city
of Leeds, Yorkshire for Liverpool.
We eventually arrived at the docks, where
the boat we were traveling on was starting
out on the river. Our luggage had gone the
day before. We settled up all necessary
business and changed our English money
into American dollars with the exception of
a few pounds, which were used for tips and
other things. We boarded the tug which
conveyed us to the side of the boat. It was
directly after the World War and shipping
was very much tied up as most of the big
liners were busy conveying troops home
The S. S. Haverford on which we trav-
elled had been used as a war ship in the
Dardanelles.She was just a light boat and
most of the passengers were officers and
their wives traveling home to America,
Halifax and Nova Scotia.
We sailed out of the river Mersey with
the tide, and next day passed the coast of
Ireland. We had some Irish passengers on
board who told us they had had a dreadful

The- second night, we were awakened by
a piercing scream from the state room next
door. Mother got up, put on her gown and
went to see what was the matter. Some-
body brought the doctor and nurse. This
lady was traveling alone. She had caught a
bad cold coming over from Ireland. on the
packet for a boatlg she died before morn-
ing. We had a burial the next day at
twelve o'clock. You can imagine a perfect
day out in the ocean ix ith nothing in sight
but water. Our boat was standing still and
nearly a thousand voices were raised in the
singing of the hymn "Abide With Me" :then
the voice of the captain reading the service
for burial of the dead at sea while the offi-
cers slid the coffin, which was covered with
the Union J ack and heavily weighted,over
The sea began to be a little choppy
after a few days out and two-thirds of the
passengers were very sea sick. The big
liner Majestic passed us on the way, and it
was good to see something different after
seeing nothing but water. The weather
began to get cold and foggy as we neared
the coast of New Foundland. The captain
got a message broadcasted to him to keep a
look out for a monster iceberg. We drifted
out of our course for nearly two days with
the fog signals blowing continually.
At last we reached Nova Scotia without
mishap where more than half of the pas-
sengers disembarked. We were sorry to sec
them depart as we had had such a good time
all together. While we were in the harbor
some beautiful colored birds came on the
ship and I am sorry to say some of them
stayed on too long and they eventually fell
into the water and drowned. We sailed up
the Delaware river, and it was certainly a
pleasure to see the banks at each side with
the flowers and trees. After being four days
on the river we arrived in Philadelphia

N a trip to Venezuela, South America,
that I made with my parents, we
stopped at a very picturesque and
interestimg island, the island of- Curacao.
This island is one of the Dutch West Indies
Islands and is situated just off the South
American coast. It is a very small island
but it has a very fine port, Port Willemstad.
Ships from all over the world come there
We learned many things while we were
there and one of the most interestingis the
fact that Curacao is a free port, .that is,
anything may be imported or exported into
or out of that port 'without the charge of
duties on the article, and for that reason
certain goods may be bought there for one
fourth of the price that you would have to
pay in the United States.
One of the most unique things in Cur-
acao is their bridgeg instead of one of the
engineering marvels of today they have a
little wooden pontoon bridge, and in order
to let the ships enter the port, at one end
there is a small steam engine on one of the
pontoons. This engine drives a propeller
and this forces the bridge to swing in a
large circle so that the ships can pass
through. This is a toll bridge and the cost
of walking across with your shoes on, is
two cents, while if you walk across with
your shoes off, the cost is only one cent.
The reason for this is that the Wear and
tear on the bridge is greater with your
shoes on and so the extra penny is charged
to cover it.
The first thing we noticed when we

UADALAJARA is one of the most
beautiful cities of the Mexican Repub-
lic, only the capital of the country
surpassing it. It was founded by the Span-
iard Cristobal de Onate, one of those who
accompanied Nuno Beltran de Guzman in
the conquest, in the extensive valley of
Atemajac. De Onate gave it the name of
the City of the Holy Spirit. This name was
changed several times afterward until it
remained what it is today in honor of the
conqueror Beltran de Guzman who was a
native of Guadalajara in Spain.
The word Guadalajara was formed from
the Arabic 'igua-dil-ad-jara" meaning
"river of stones" which name is in accord-
ance with the nature of the surrounding
country. Throughout the land, the city is
known by the complimentary and merited
name of "the Pearl of the Occident" or
"the Sultana of the Pacific." The climate
is varied and very agreeable.
The number of inhabitants is increasing
sus, 160, 000. There are many buildings of
importance among which should be men-
tioned the Government Palace, the Asylum,
the Municipal Hospital, the school of Arts
and Crafts, the Lyceum, and the Peniten-
tiaryg beside, there is the beautiful Degolla-
do Theater which contains valuable paint-
ings of great merit.
The cathedral is a magnificent temple-
The important mercantile and industrial
institutions should be noted,establishments
in which are found all classes of foreign
and domestic articles.
The panorama is greatly embellished by
the beautiful suburbs which are found to
the east of the city. They contain fine es-
tates of different styles. . There are also in

Scene On Beach At Newastle, Ireland '
TX Trip to Newcastle, County
iBy John Fultonl
WAS born in Belfast, Northern Ireland,
a city famous for its shipbuilding yards
and its linen factories. It also has the
largest rope work in the world. The place
which I will decribe is called Newcastle.
It is situated about thirty-two miles from
Belfast and is a lovely place to spend a
The popular mode of travel to Newcastle
is by train, but some make the journey by
push bicycle. The route lay along good
gravel roads. These roads are not fine
boulevards, but what the roads lack in
smoothness is amply compensated for by
the beauty of the route traversed. One
forgets about being tired when going slowly
through wondrous scenery stretching as far
as the eye can see. I well remember the
first time I made the journey by train with
my father and mother. I was excited at
going to a place I had not visited before
but had heard so much about.
I sat next to the window in the train
and was able to see all the places we passed
through, and I got a lot of pleasure out of
It was in the month of July, one of the
warmest months of the year, and all along
the route farmers were busy working in
their fields gathering in their crops. Some
were operating mowing machines: others
were carting hay to the barns, and all
seemed quite happy and busy in their
I was very happy because of the prospect
of a six-weeks vacation down by the sea
where I could either romp in the woods or
have a dip in the ocean as I pleased.
We duly arrived at our destination and
after leaving the station my father engaged
an Irish Jaunting car ihorse drawnj to take
us to our temporary lodging. It is fine to
ride in one of these. There are seats for
three persons on each side, back top back,

looking outwards. The driver sat up in front
on a high seat, and one had an unobstructed
view of everything on his side of the road.
On a trip of this sort an umbrella
or overcoat is brought along to insure
some degree of comfort. Generally this
precaution is amply justified as it rains
there most of the time.
On this day the weather was lovely
and we finally arrived at our quarters, a
place situated at the end of this old-world
village. After we were comfortably settled
and had something to eat, we paid a visit
to Lady Annesley's domain.
This is a lovely place, densely wooded and
through the center of which runsalovely
stream of pure crystal water. This comes
down from the Mourne Mountains, and
these mountains furnish the people of Bel-
fast with their water supply. There are
many little waterfalls in this stream, and
quiet pools which abound with trout, which
are well aware of the fact that no artificial
flies or tempting worms will disturb their
tranquillity. There is also an old ruin in this
sheltered spot as if to supply the added
touch necessary in an ideal setting.
Afterward we climbed an adjoining hill
to see the beautiful view which it afforded.
A slight idea of its beauty is shown by the
pictures. We had taken our lunch and we
ate it there. That night when we went to
bed it was to sleep the sleep of the weary.
Next day I went out by myself, my ob-
jective being the seashore where I climbed
among the rocks and then gathered shell-
fish, and wallowed in the sea to my heart's
content. It is a lovely beach with shimme r
ing white sand over which the Irish Sea
comes tumbling in over half-submerged
rocks where sea-gulls, tern and cormo-
rants roost. One can also take trips in little
fishing boats and enjoy good sport.
At the opposite end of the town is situ-
ated one of the finest golf courses in the
world. Here some of the fine American
and European golfers have shown their

ors. Travelers from all over the world visit

My Cvisit to Juarez, Mexico
KBy Howard Wvlllia-m Wheaterl
HEN I visited Juarez, Mexico it was
at night and a revolution was in prog-
ress. We left our hotel at about 6:30
and went to the plaza. There we saw all of
interest which is in the way it is laid out
with lanes, flowers and shrubbery. 'Ihe
fountain is much like San Diego's. In the
fountain they have lights of all colors, and
the water is alive with gold fish. A short
distance frorn the fountain is a small pool
with alligators in it, and this pool has a
small fountain in the center. This park is
snrrounded with tall buildings and the
streets radiate in all directions.
Taking a car was not so easy as you
had to know what car to take. After taking
a car we went to the Rio Grand river which
we crossed on a bridge about a mile long.
The river was nearly dry as this was their
dry season. The United States Customs of-
ficer came in the street car and looked us
over and passed on to the next person.
Juarez is at the end of the bridge and as
all of the Mexican cities have one street
we got off the street car and went in the
first place. Juarez is different from Tia
Juana as all the city is run by Americans
and all is carbaret style. In the carbaret
the orchestra played and a. chorus danced.
From there we went outside and bought
some Mexican jewels, fancy work and
coins. Then we visited thel places where
the war had been, then the race track, and
then we returned to our hotel.

Eare proud to say that we are
one of the oldest clubs in the
school, since we have been organ-
ized, for almost three years, with an enroll-
ment of about twenty girls with Miss
Tischer as sponsor.
Our first project this year was the mak-
ing of satin sweet peas, gauze and metal
ribbon flowers. Many pretty bunches were
made which served for pratical gifts. .
Mrs. Lyons has helped the seventh grade
girls organize a Handicraft club. She first
taught them to make bouquets of flowers
fiom silk ribbon: then they painted dresser
sets, and then made pocket books of yarn.
Last Febuary they had a surprise party
which everyone enjoyed very much.
All the girls are hoping to have this
Handicraft club next year.
We next tied and dyed silk scarfs and
handkerchiefs. This proved to be very in-
teresting work. Our next project was the
making of felt pocket-books and little
bunches of flowers to match. We then be-
gan to work with wax, making wax beads
and doing some plaques.
One of our last projects was the making
of nut cups and favors which aided us verv
much in our farewell party at Bixby Park.
The color scheme was carried out in pastel
shades. The dainty nut cups and favors
made it a pretty and impressive scene

A 1927-192B Season
LEXANDER Hamilton Junior High, a school that has had but three
years of seasoning, has developed a reputation that has been feared
and honored by all to whom it known. The clean, manly playing and
high spirit of the students have, by virtue of winning the 'championship
three consecutive years, been officially honored by being awarded the class
C Basket Ball and class A Baseball cirps as .permanent trophies.
Speedball honors were bestowedg upon Hamilton again as the Eagles
won Class A and C championships. The Class B Basket Ball squad went to
the final game before it was defeated. In the All-City Track and Field
meet the Eagles landed two third plaees in Class A and B while the Midgets
dropped to the fourth position. The Class C Baseball aggregation finished
in second place due to the loss to Jefferson.

HAMPIONSHIP in 1926 and 27 lead it
to be beleived that Hamilton ruled the
circuit in basketball,and the 1928 out-
fit made an apparent title start by down-
ing Franklin,12 to 10.
In the following game Edison secured a
one-sided xictory of 23 to 17. Jefferson
was tied, 6 all, and Washington closed the
season by defeating the locals 13 to 11.
Although the Eagles had four lettermen
back to play, they could not stop their op-
ponent's attact. Barnett, former middle-
weight star, captained the team.

LAYING under a spell that held the
Eagle middleweights from champion-
ships in 1926 and 27, the 1928 clan
entered the final duel with hopes of regis-
tering Middleweight surpremacy only to be
overcome by the powerful Washington crew
that collected the cup in '27 . The defeat
arrived after an overtime period was neces-

Captain Holbrook rung up a total of 35
points to lead his team.
ERMANENT possession of the light-
weight trophy was obtained by the
Midget squad by virtue of staging
four fast victories over their rivals for the
third consecutive year. The 1926 and 27
teams partially paved the way to victory
by nabbing championships, and the '28
squad flattened all comers by heavy scores.
Franklin was the first to bow to defeat
after the Eaglets had romped them 23 to
3. Edison lost the next clash in a close
battle that ended 8 to 5. Jefferson was the
third victim and lost under an 8 to 2 score.
Washington took the final count, 12 to 2,

FTER winning four out of five dual
meets, the Hamilton Cinflerpath men
.did not come through in such great
formfin the All-city meet. Nevertheless
the Heavies finished third in class A, and
the Middleweights also took athird in class
B. Both squads were beaten by the crack
Franklin and Jefferson outfits. In the class
C dual meets the midgets fell prey to
Franklin and Jefferson but cinched an easy
victory over Addams, the fast team that
caused much surprise in the All-City clash
by taking the C division in easy fashion.
Downey of the varsity created much sur-
prise when he ran a brilliant race in the half-
mile to cop a second to Rathburn, the cham-
pion. In the dash events Freeman nabbed a
second in the fifty yard dash while Parks
and Davis furnished fourth and fifth places
in the furlong. Miller staged a fine race to
win a third, and Montoya took a fourth in
the low hurdles besides Miller's third in the
In the relay Hamilton's speedy quartet
was nosed out of first place by Franklin and
Jefferson which if we had won might have
given us the championship.
Scharlin won third place in the weight-
throwing event, and Fawcett took fourth
in the high jump. Parks finished the scoring
with a fifth in the broad jump.
The Class B Tracksters put on a shaky
battle but landed in third place with 18
points made by Schuber, first in the shot:
Holten, fifth in the shot: Cissne and Camp-
bell placed second and forth in the high
jump. Lacy and Browning won second and
third in the broad jump. In the track
events Jones placed fifth in the fifty and
Rutt third in the hurdles. The relay team
composed of Browning, Jones, Campbell
and Schuber placed third. "
Duprey lead the Midget's point scoring
attack with a first in the high jump and
fourth in the broad jump. Hamble tied
for fifth in the high jump. Stephensen ran
fourth in the seventy-five yard dash. Hi-
land threw for fifth in the shot. Stephensen,
Rosenberg, Duprey, and Hadley ran the
relay team to second place.
Out of the 298 points the Heavyweights
gathered during the entire season, Miller
registered 40 1-4 to lead the field: Parks
and Freeman tied for second with 33 1-2
each. Captain Hughes tallied 33 1-4, and
Downey hung up a total of 21.

" Who afre, who afre, who are we
We are health and e7,Wc'iencry!"
UST hear that yell, Nellie New Girl!
That's the Hamilton Health Club.
Come on out to the gym and I'll tell you
all about it and show you what we do.
Every girl at Hamilton wants to belong
to this Health Club. It was started just
this year and every junior higii school in
the city has one. You should see the girls
who belong to this club. They must have
good feet, straight spines, rosy cheeks,
weight just right, good posture, shining
teeth and must not bite their finger nails.
They have the best times-for they have
programs, initiation parties and banquets.
Here we are in the Physical Education
department. I'll introduce you to our
teachers. Here are Mrs. Howe and Mrs.
Harriman, who have regular physical edu-
cation, and Miss Beard, who has orthope-
dic. Mrs. Funk is our school nurse.
Come on, Nellie, and look at our bulle-
tin board. That poster, showing the ther-
mometers, tells us how the contest between
the Orange and the Black is coming. Every
girl in our school belongs to one or the
other of these two teams. The streamers
across the girls' shoulders show to which
team they belong. It looks as if the Orange
is going to win this year.
These pictures show the letter H, which
the girls formed at the boys' track meet
this year. There were almost two hundred
girls in it. We used orange and black pom-
poms for th e figures. Some people say
that ours looked as good, or better, than
any of the others.
Baseball season is on now and here is the
lschedule for the games. We have splendid
lclass teams and the girls work hard to get
lon them. Let's go out doors and see them
We will take this way out thru our
dressing rooms. Don't you like them.
Every gym day the girls, get a good shower.
Sometimes the new girls don't like them
ibut after they have been here awhile
,they wouldn't miss one for anything.
This door leads to the playground.Most
'of the work is done out here in the
sunshine. See how many girls come out for
teams? Each quarter we play a different
game, volley ball is first, basket ball is sec-
ond, soccer is third and last of all comes
baseball. Tennis is praticed the year around.
The girls working after school are try-
ing to make their letter H. This is no easy
task as it takes at least two years. When
they get two hundred points they get an
emblem and for each hundred after that a
chevron. Then when they get five hundred
points the Hamilton H is awarded to them
at a Girls' League meeting. There are many
ways to earn these points besides making
teams. Supply room monitors earn them,
odo girls in orthopedic. They are obtained
by passing postures tests or makeing good
decathlon records. Leaders in classes
receive them also.
, Would you like to be a leader? You cer-
tainly will have a chance at Hamilton.

Each class is divided into squads and the
girls select their squads leaders. Then all
of the squads of one color have a leader
appointed who is called either orange or
b ack color captain. Over the orange color
captains is a chief color captain and it is the
same with the blacks. Then over all we
have a Commissioner of Athletics. She
represents our department on the Council,
I want you to see our gymnasium too.
Every class has one day a week in it. We
have marching, formal work, posture tests,
apparatus, tumbling and dancing--both ryth-
mic and folk. Tonight the Rythmic Club is
here. It meets every Thursday after school.
This crowd in Mrs. Harriman's office is
signing up for the big play day at Poly
High next Saturday. We take four teams,
tennis players and swimmers, and so does
every Junior High in Long Beach. It's all for
the fun of playing and getting acquainted
with other girls. Though we do our best it
doesn't break our hearts if we don't win.
First will come a posture test. then the
games, next thereis swimming for every-p
one and all this is to be followed by a good
luncheon and program in the cafeteria.
, Lets go into the orthopedic room. Aren't
these pieces of apparatus interesting? Here
girls work to make themselves 100 percent
physically fit. Look at these weight charts.
One girl has gained 8 1-2 lbs. already this
semester, and here is one following with a
gain of 8 1-4 lbs. Believe me, it takes close
following of health rules to gain that much.
H In the fall you will find these rooms a
veritable bee hive,with every girl in school
taking a health examination. Everyone
helps then and it doesn't take long to know
just what a girl must do to make herself
100 percent. There is not room for everyone
who needs h :lp to get into the orthopedic
classes, so nearly all of us come in and
learn exercises to do at home. Then wehave
glbejtter chance to enter the Honor Health
l u .
You say that you would like to belong to
this Health Club and win a letter H also.
