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. 1 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. 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Seven SP-xxx gfqu 2 .S 2. X -NX EXW x-,1 - :xc X. Q: 5 1ogs5xm xg gb.

' ' "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. OCTOBER As " per usual" speedball held sway this month, and we had many hot and ex- citing games. The Eaglets brought home the "Silverware" . Then there was Hollowe'en, and what have you? NOVEMBER 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. DECEMBER 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 hospital. The dramatic classes staged the annual Christmas play. Everyone left school with the spirit of Christmas in his heart. JANUARY '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. Eight 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. FEBRUARY 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 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 machine. Oh! Boy! And the annual staff was elected. Everyone was satisfied on. the whole except those chosen. APRIL 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 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. JUNE h "What is so rare as a day in June?" -ws Q. --" X -w"'3s""X 5NF"NS,Y" Y" .rx Nam "N 'W L' 5-.

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. 9A class M. T. Head, President, SEAL N. O.

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! Twenty-six 1 l IW SN -Y few SQ' Qs at 'ffl aw Q 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- ing years. 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 students. 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 world. 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 i i2?'v'7Z ? ' 3' '." aaam.a.e'Q 4 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. Twenty-seven , N R, ,i , N ,S . ,K . . 953, X ,sf egg si .xx s.

The officers of the club are: president, Arthur Leeversg vice president, Arthur J aissle: librarian, Jimmy Olsson: asst.librarian, Wallace Gerhardtg sergeant- at-arms, Herman Buckles. LaVerne Hadley and Charles Mahon are in charge of the sweaters, and Norman Davis is the accom- panist. The Boys' Glee uniform is a white shirt, dark trousers and orange sweater. These sweaters were voted on by the faculty and presented to the club, the money having been earned by the operetta. Besides taking part in the operetta the Boys' Glee had the opportunity of perform- ing with the other Junior High Boys' Glee clubs for the State Principals-convention. Other performances during the year were for the Parent-Teachers' programsfand the June Promotional exercises. Twenty-eight The Givlsi Glee Club 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. The Girls' Glee this year consists of forty-two girls with the following officers: president, Doris Courtiourg vice president, Maxine Curyeag secretary-treasurer, Nina Bendingerg librarian, Ruth Alderete,assist- ant librarian, Daisy Mac Kay.

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- tions. 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, l hvortdev Why can't we always be happy?

W l l I Q ... 5 EE' il-Ill!! ll'l'C'DN 5555355 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 return trip. 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, Thirty-four AQAQ 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. ss Xsg.sssQQ.ssg.wgssQg.igssr rr sr S M is X X X5 X 5 NGx, XS N Q 3 x - ,E E X Q u -, XX ,sfziitx ,fail-ihx psig x. , 33558.

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. L-lVty cl-vip Prom. England To Yihruevicct fBy Eleanor B. S,LG7'bO'l'7Z6, 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 from France. 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 z 55:5 .-12 Z IE ' L xx voyage from Ireland to England through the Irish channel which is always very rough. 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 rail. 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 where we took the train for "Dear Old California.

Down at the bottom of the volcanic Mountain Dumpo, in the central part of the Island of Sumatra, were five Americans and several natives starting on the trip to the crater. They hiked about an hour through the quinine plantation which lies at the foot of this mountain. Later they entered the vir- gin jungles which had trees almost two hundred feet high. They were following a small path through the underbrush, and on either side of the path were beautiful flowers of every description. In the distance they could hear the call of the orangutan as they played among the tree tops. The trail grew steeper as they trudged on, and they were forced to rest many times. Thirty-six Finally they reached the half Way place. Here they rested and had lunch: they carved their names on some nearby trees where were carved the names of all the other people who had ever climbed the mountain. When they started, they noticed that the trees were getting smaller and the air colder, Now they began to see many tracks of Mountain goats, and a few small birds: all other animal life had disappeared. On they Went until they were almost exhausted, butat length they reached the top of the mountain. Here they were disappointed in finding that they had to go down a valley and up another slope to reach the crater. When they reached the crater they were very near exhaustion, but they were thrilled by the sight they saw. There was agreat basin filled with what seemed to be green bubbling water. As the white clouds came floating over the basin, they sank down into the crater to pay it a visit.

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 to trade. 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 streets are made of cobblestones, and are kept spot- lessly clean, as the natives scrub them. Because every thing is kept so clean there, they say that the pictures advertising "Old Dutch Cleanser" were taken there. You may buy some article there and pay the merchant in United States money and receive your change in Spanish, Dutch, and English money. The reason for this is that United States, English, Dutch, Spanish and Venezuelan money is legal tender in Curacao. I After a short but enjoyable visit at this queer little port, we left for Venezuela. I was very sorry to leave there but I was happy because I knew We were going to another queer place. rr if lk l Cl-UCI, IBQ1 Lucy Sanclzezl 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 the city seventy Catholic churches notable for their architecture, beauty and elegance. IF S lk ll!

The first thing that one of the natives did when we reached the summit was to offer a sacrifice by burning his hat on the altar. The sun was now going down so they went into the valley and stayed all that night. In the early morning they started down. The trip down was much easier than the trip up. As they were nearing the foot of the mountain and were in the large jungles again, they were walking along quietly when they looked up into one of the trees and saw four large orangutan which were swinging gracefully through the tree tops. After two hours more they reached the qui- nine plantation, and from there went back to the hotel in a car. They were the first Americans to go to the top of the mountain.

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 this. 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 work. 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, Thirty-nine gg. ' ' sus: - tb: .ij ug . ss ,sz :gg .gs eg. xt-.,' . xx xqesg NL--syxg, i.: kmx Q s : Q . Q Sei-- X x-- . h 2,5 -5 ss .

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 Forty ' ,Zi ,N .,.. X .XR ,..., ,X ..... R .... X p .. .w...,.

Travelers from all over the world visit this lovely seaside resort. 0 U C I 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. l ii l 1 FACULTY YELLS Raw, Raw, Raw, Jaw, Jaw, Jaw, We flunk em all, Haw, Haw, Haw. x xx x xg Vxmxs 'r Nw Xxx XX Ask xx N t ask as N N,XxX X Q NN X NX NN 45 x . .Q ,.,. , X SM.

The League is sponsored by Mr. Wallace. Meetings are held semi- monthly. The Boys' League aims to give opportunities for leader- ship, to present problems and their solutions to the boys. Interesting talks by faculty members and citizens have aided in accomplishing these aims. The officers for the second semester were: Joe Rosenberg, president: Erwin Schuber, vice president: La Verne Hadley, secretary. The Boys' League has had a fair start this year and should accomplish many pur- poses next year. The Boys' League with the Girls' League have sponsored the muve - ment for the purchase of the Motion Pic- ture Machines, and have raised practically the entire amount by giving picture shows and selling candy.

The decorations were carried out in the Schorlarship colors, pink and green. Water lilies held pink sweet peas and maiden hair fern while pink and gold butterflies were scattered here and there. The place cards were very original-a wise old owl with gold eyes sat within a golden figure HS". Although the new form of earning points is much stricter, we have just as many members as we ever had. Thirty pirs have been sold already to students who have been members three semesters. An artistic list of names of scholarship members has been made in the Art De- partment and placed in a beautiful frame presented by the Hamilton P.-T. A. This hangs in the hall opposite the library door. Each semester they will be changed for the new membership, and stars added to in- dicate the number of times a student has been a member. We feel very proud of this list. In February we sent seventeen scholar- ship members to Poly High. Among the other Junior Highs of the city we rank high in scholarship. At our last meeting J. B. Stone was succeed as representative to the Federation Council by Josephine Hayter. quette for high school students. Although the club has been organized only two semesters, it has a roll of one hundred and twenty' members.

The club meets in room 23 and is dismised about 4:30. In this club are some girls who know how to make a thing which the other girls would like to make. These girls help other girls to make these things. This explains the origin of the club's name. Girls are taught to make paper and yarn flowers, to emboider, to decorate wax candles, to shellac pictures, etc. Mrs. Switzer has proved an interesting and excellent sponsor. The club has been a great success.

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 UKE CLUB P Despite the windy weather on April 3 a Beach Party was held forthe visiting principals in front of the Belmont Beach Club. There were twenty-five campfires along the beach and each campfire had a host and hostess. The refreshments were served at the capmfires. Entertainers passed from campfire to campfire and performed for the guest. Among these entertainers were members of our Uke Club. After the refreshments the principals were ushered into the dancing pavilion of the Beach Club: herea program The Spclirttslft Club MONG the various clubs at Hamil- ton the Sqanish Club was perhaps tne most appreciateb. The club was composed Of about eleven girls and one boy. The officers are as follows: president Roberta Packmeng secretary, Margaret Thompson: treasurer. Dorothy Kellyglibrar. ian, John Smith: typist, Katheryn Leevers. During the semester we had two very interesting speakers. The object of the meeting was to make imaginary visits to the different Spanish speaking countries. It was voted upon and decided that we should start with Spain. There was a speech' made by one of the inembers at each meeting on one of the points of interest in the country which we ivere studying. The club should be very interesting to the Spanish students because they can learn rnoreeabout the country which they are studying. +52 TRAVEL CLUB l The Travel Club is a club of 15 mem- bers, boys and girls, and it is sponsored by lVIr.

Girls have come and girls have gone: still the memory of the Pung U will always be with them. Over 75 girls have been members of the Pung U's at different times, but we have never had more than 30 in the club at once. We have worked earnestly in trying to find the best in life, and we have found and given the best. Friendship has been our motto as this is the meaning of Pung U, and we have tried to live up to it. The girls who are leaving wish to leave a message of cheer and friendship to those who are staying behind. Don't forget girls: live up to our motto aud the Girl Reserve code. The girls who are remaining at Hamilton also wish the graduates all the luck and happiness possible in the future, and we hope that we can carry on the club for all the years to come and have many new members.

" EZNEC 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. ' Forty- seven is T fir. S" I 'sli is Q. i M f s r aw - 'u si in .ll ll!

For the second year since Hamilton made its debut ,the Eagles have produced a cham- pionship team. With six lettermen that were contenders on the "26" team returning and Norman Franklin as captain, the local squad con- quered their invaders in brilliant form. Class C HE Eagle Midget gridiron clan, under Coach Bathke and Captain Clark, fenlivened lightweight speedball hopes in a barrage that registered four straight E l verdicts. The Midgets silenced Franklin in the opener, 31 to 4, and emerged winners l over Edison, 14 to 8, and over Washington, l the '26 champs, 11 to 6. By virtue of con- i quering Jefferson, 7 to 3, the squad yield- ed another cup to the school's collection. The champ-magnets stacked an impressive total of 63 points to overwhelm their op- ponent's 21. i Galaz, Clark, Hoos, Rosenberg and ,Stephens featured in a constant attack lthat bewildered all competition. Jaisle, Hess, Harvey and Shaddock inserted par- Wicularly good defense into the champion- ship machine. The squad established the ,title with but three lettermen back in com- lpetition. i The score df the games: Class A--- Franklin 7, Hamilton 6: Edison 6, Hamilton i14Q Jefferson 3, Hamilton 245 Washington 10, Hamilton 123 Dewey 9, Hamilton 17.

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. Class B ' 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- Fifty FQ: , .... XS, .... I .... Xxx, .,.. Fg..XXQ:f...:Yi..,kgg..tQx?t. ., 5? SS xx 514 ZR sary. The locals fell to the short end of a 13 to 14 fray. The Eagles threatened the title after three bombarding victories over Franklin, 17 to 7, Edison, 31 to 6, and Jefferson, 21 to 9, Captain Holbrook rung up a total of 35 points to lead his team. Class C 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, which lowered the lightweight curtain fContinued on Page Fifty-fourl .Q-Ex. ...

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 high sticks.

Her- GSS AMlLTON'S crack diamond aggre- gation completed the 1928 baseball campaign as the champions for the third consecutive season. The Eagle Ball- tossers gained permanent possession of the cup by propelling six straight vic- tories over junior prepdom competitors. The Eagles crossed bats with Franklin in the opener and downed the Greyhounds 6 to 2. The champs next engaged with Ed- ison and after a hard battle they compiled an 8 to 3 verdict over the Inventors. The Eagles annexed the third fray from Jeffer- son, 3 to 0. The outfit next flattened Washington, 9 to 2, and smothered Dewey under a 14 to 1 score. Addams lost the final game. Coach Wallace had much material in seven letterman that returned for the 1928 season. Sanchez, a releif hurler, from last year and Miller, the former first sacker, did the mound duties and shifted with center- field. Combs, McGee, and Clark patroled X. s.. he Nyliiiw? nandez displayed fine form at first sack Fwhile Cecil and Urbine covered the key- stone bag. McCormick played stellar ball at third and Howard worked at short stop. Lisman worked under Coach Wallaceas manager.

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 ipratice. 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.

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. p , 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. Fine! Come on and start tomorrow. Just listen to those girls-i l "Away with cake and, candy, Away with pickles and pie, 0 Then come and join the Health Club i Of Hamwlltrm Jumor High." im? wi X ' ,lf ' Fifty-seven - , .,....,. t ... . ....
