THE mid -year graduates of 1929 held their
promotional exercises in the Hamilton
School auditorium. The students entered
the auditorium to the strains of the "War
March"by the Hamilton orchestra. The in-
vocation was given by the Reverend Well-
ington Pierce. "Stars In Heaven" was sung
by the Girls' Glee Club. "Sundown" was
sung by the combined Girls' and Boys' Glee
Club. The address of the evening was given
by the Reverend Dr. Thomas B. Frizelle.
The class marched across the stage to re-
ceive their diplomas from our Principal. Mr.
H. H. Hicks, tothe class march, "March
Pontificale". The class was then assembled

ilton Junior High 9A class will be held

Three hundred thirty-two pupils will re-

As customary the Wednesday evening be-
fore graduation the graduates will have a
banquet where musical numbers, stunts,
speeches and toasts are to be given. This is
the only social evening the 9A stu-

are present. This banquet will be held in
the school cafeteria which will be decorated

on the stage and pledged allegiance tothe
flag. The exercises were ended by the
singing of the "Star Spangled Banner" by
the class of 1929 and the audience.
One hundred and thirty-five students
were graduated. Fifteen of them belonged
to the Scholarship Society, twelve to the or-
chestra and sixteen to the Glee Clubs.
We had some very outstanding students
among these graduates: the founders of the
Hamilton Aviation Club, Girls League pres-
ident, and three sets of twins. Some of the
best athletes left Hamilton with this class.
We know that these students will make a
success of themselves and we wish them
Hamilton will lose eighteen members of
its senior orchestra. These people will
possibly enter the orchestras of Polytechnic
or Wilson High Schools.
Twenty-seven girls and thirteen boys
must take the places of the graduating
members of the senior glee clubs. Hamilton
is very proud of its songsters and song-
Polytechnic and Wilson will receive
twenty-three members of the Hamilton
Scholarship Society. Although this is a small
percent ofthe graduating class, we are
proud to have them represent us in the

tunate in their athletics. They have not
lost a game this year to any other school.

New Student Government
TTI-IE beginning of this semestera
new form of school government was
established at Hamilton. This new form is
similar to the government of the United
States, being composed ofa President. a
Vice-President, Cabinet. Senate and a
House of Representatives.
The Cabinet is composed of the following
officers: the President, Vice President and
thirteen secretaries, whose offices are:
Publications. Exhibitions, Clubs, As-
semblies, Safety. Property, Plays and Oper-
ettas, Sections, Scholarship. Social Affairs,
Boys Activities and Girls League. Each
member of the Cabinet has a certain
definite duty to preform. Each officer has
one sponsor. Every cabinet member is
expected to fulfill the duties required of
him. If by any chance this is not done, the
member will be asked to resign.
The summary of the duties of Cabinet
members are as follows:
The Vice-President---To preside at Cabinet
meeting when President is absent. preside
at House of Representatives when their
appointed chairman is absent.
Secretary of Publications---To collect all
news for publication in the "Eagle," to as-
sist the managers of the Annual, and pro-
mote publicity for the school.
Secretary of Finance---To keep an account
of all dues, fines or collections within the
schoolg to see to the budget and distribute
the funds among the various departments.
Secretary of Property---To work with the
aid of Sponsor, Principal. Vice-Principal.
teachers and janitors in trying to keep
the school property in the best of condition-
Secretary of Exhibitions---To aid the
sponsor in collecting, displaying and re-
turning all work to be placed on exhibit.
Secretary of Plays and Operettas---To
assist the dramatic and music departments
of the school in all performances.
Secretary of Clubs---To work with
sponsor in making a unity in the club life
of the school.
Secretary of Social Affairs---To make a
more agreeable social feeling within the
school, to extend Hamilton hospitality to all
Secretary of Safety---In charge of fire-
drills, street crossings, patrol and Health
Secretary of Activities---To assist in all
games, meets and other activities connected
with boys athletics.
Secretary of Girls' League---To work
with the Dean of Girls. the League officers
and all the girls of Hamilton.
Secretaxy of Scholarship---To work
with the Scholarship Society sponsors in
promoting the better attitude toward high-
er scholarship standards,
Secretary of Assemblies---To assist in
securing more and better assemblies and
to have charge of the program of assem-
Secretary of Sections---To work with
sponsor in trying to work out a program to
beusecl in the section rooms and improving
the citizenshipof the students of Hamilton.
This is only an outline ofthe duties of
the various cabinet members.
One of the more important requirements
of a cabinet member is that he put on
a progrrun in an assembly, a program that
would be appropiate for his office. For ex-
ample: the Secretary of Plays and Oper-
ettas would probably give a program which
would bc connected with the school play,
or the Secretary of Property would probably
give a program in connection with the care
of school and personal property. Several
of our cabinet members have been invited
to speak at various meetings. Recently
the Secretary of Safety attended a banquet
at Franklin Junior High School and gave
a short talk.
The Student Congress as in National
government consists of two Houses. The
Senate, is made up of one representative
from each grade. The work of the Senate
is not so definite. It is the duty of the Sen-

inseparable: established upon those principles of Freedom, Equality,
Justice, and Humanity for which American patriots sacrificed
their lives and fortunes .
I therefore believe it is my duty to my couutry to love it: to sup-

fend it against all enemies.

HOWARD H. Hicks, Principal,
Alexander Hamilton Junior High School,
Long Beach, California.
My dear Principal Hicks:
As Director of the National Physical Education Service of America and
as President of the Department of School Health and Physical Education
of the National Education Association, I want to tell you how much I enjoy-
ed my visit to your splendid school.
1 have been visiting schools over the country for many years. I see dozens
of them in weeks and hundreds in months.Your Flag Ceremonial is one of
the finest thingsl have seen for many aday, and it gave me a thrill that
I haven't experienced for a long time.
It is fine. It touches the soul. It is impressive. Educationally it is full of
potentialites. Ican see it as a builder of patriotism, reverence, school mor-
ale and a love of the beautiful. The ritual itself impressed me as being
very well selected, well timed, simple and yet complete.
I feel good all over now for having seen it and been a part of it.
December 5, 1928. James Edward Rogers. .
OUR Scholarship Society has just com-
pleted one of the most successful years
in the history of the society.More interest
than ever before has been shown by the
students, and the membership has increas-
Hamilton is a member of the new Junior
High Scholarship Federation which was
formed by the Junior Highs of long Beach
in an effort to standardize the system of
grading, and, in compliance with the new
rules, the old system in our school has been
abandoned and the Federation systemadopt-
ed. This new system is more severe, and as
a result the membership dropped during
the first semester, but it has again climbed
for the second semester, although in the
opinion of the sponsors, it is not yet as
high as it ought to be. Only 6 1-2 percent of
the total student body of Hamilton is repre-
sented in Scholarship while we should have
at least 10 percent.
In an effortto keep Scholarship constant-
ly before the students and to arouse more
enthusiasm among them, several assem-
blies have been given this year. For these
same purposes representatives to Scholar-
ship have been elected for each section and
these representatives keep their sections in-
formed with matters pertaining to Scholar-
Under the Federation rules a student who
has been a member of Scholarship for three
semesters is entitled to wear the Federation
pin. This is quite an honor and a student
who wears one of these pins will find that
it helps him greatly, in more ways than
one, when he enters High School.
A Scholarship panel, which hangs outside
the Library door, and which contains the
names of the Scholarship members, has
amused a great deal of favorable comment,
especially among the new-comers to the
school. It is changed at the end of each
semester and the names of new member
are added. Each time that a student eu-
ceeds in making Scholarship, after his
name has once been placed on the panel, a
mark is added after it, and in this way the
student can keep track of his progress.
Scholarship has a social side, too. At the
end of each semester a party ora banquet
is given, which is attended by members of

The Student Patrol
NE of the important organizations of our
student body is the Student Patrol. The
faculty advisor of this organization is Gladys
S. Larsen, social science teacher. The chief
officers are: Bob Mclnnis, who has charge
of checking lower flogrg Alfred Milton in
charge of noon duties, and the writer who
has charge of roll call and 'upper floor. The
duties of this organization are to maintain
order and discipline both in the halls and
on the school ground and to help enforce
certain school regulations.
The body is divided in to three unitsg
namely, the hall patrolmen, the noon pa-
trolmen, and the playground patrolmen.
The duties of a hall patrolmen are direc-
tion of traffic, and maintenance of order in
the halls. The noon division is primarily to
see that the school regulation pertaining to
permits for leaving the school ground is en-
forced, while the playground divihspolis ne
the teachers to enforce the observance of
playground rules and regulations.
An individual patrolman is in a position
to derive much valuable training and execu-
tive experience by the proper discharge of
his duties. In order to derive these benefits
properly, he must be firm, but fair and
impartial. Personal feelings or animosity
must not enter into the situation. In this
way he is building his own character along
the proper lines and is imparting to others,
by his example, a feeling of respect and
The student body as a whole is benefited
by the patrol organization in the inculca-
tion of the idea of self-government. Pupils
as individuals and as a body are thus learn-
ing the fundemental principles of American
government, that is, observance and re-
spect for law and order.
1 'JR Senior Orchestra this term has sixty
five members. Its elected officers are:
Mamie Lombard, president, C. P. Gold-
smith, secretary-treasurer, and Elsie Lee,
The Orchestra, in uniform, plays regu-
larly every Monday morning in the Flag
Drill exercises. Recently they played for
a Masonic Club luncheon.
This program which was also broadcast
over K FOX was greatly appreciated by the
club members. The soloists in the Orchestra
were Adaline McCartney,concert mistress
and Arthur Claar, coruetist.
Several members not long ago repres-
ented the Senior Orchestra at the Pacific
Coast Club luncheon. They were Adaline
McCartney, violinist, and Arthur Claar,
cornetist. with Leone Turnbow and Lillian
McCartney as accompanlsts.
There has been a popular boys, sextette
developed within the Orchestra. It is

Boys Cl'tOU LLS
FOR the past two semesters Mrs. Jones
has been sponsor of a group of boys
who organized a club called "Boys' Chorus. "
This club sang for P.-T. A. meetings and
holiday assemblies and thus far has proved
a great success.
Last semester we were organized as a
club room gang but this semester we are
"a happy go-lucky crew of sailors," sailing
every morning from 7:45 to 8:30 over the
sea of songs.
Like all other clubs we have our rules
which are promptly obeyed by the crew.

THE annual production for our school
this year wasa two-act Colonial play
called "Political Tea" based on the Boston
Tea Party and the stirring- events of our
American history. The story of the play
was as follows:
Miss Amanda Linwood, a despotic
wealthy old spinster, was raising her neice
Patty, gave a tea party in the garden of
her beautiful, Colonial home. To this party,
Miss Linwood invited friends, who were
some of the leading citizens of the day.
Woven into the gaiety of the afternoon
events was the very serious discussion as
to the significance of the Boston Tea Party
and similar events which later brought on
the Revolutionary War. This conversation
contributed much real historical knowledge
and created the atmosphere for the second
act, Miss Linwood proved an ideal hostess
in the first act and furnished a very pleas-
ing program for her guests and incidently
for the audience. Among the outstanding
numbers in first act were three lovely Co-
lonial dances, as well as a solo dance and
some wonderful musical selections. Seven-
ty-eight people appeared in the first act.
With professional stage and bright effects
used, one can readily picture the beauty of
the garden. The new scenery was made at
a Hollywood studio for us. One especial-
ly noticed the new colonial doorway and the
The minstrels who played for the dancers
were seated beneath a garden lattice trel-
lis which gave a very pleasing garden ef-
fect. You can easily imagine what a lovely
setting the garden made for the beautiful
costumes of the party guests.
The second act took place in the living
room of Miss Linwood's home. This, of
course, had to be very beautifully furnish-
ed to signify the wealth, culture and refine.

Here again, many guests were present
to spend the afternoon preparing bandages
and packing war supplies for the soldiers.
The war had been on for several months
before the second act takes place.The view-
point of the folks left at home was depicted
here and proved a beautiful group scene.
Snoopy Snithers, the village gossip and
her two colleagues, furnished the comedy

craft and the heaviest part of the action for
the leads took place in act two. One was

tea-drinking and finally force her to consent

Aunt Amanda loved Judge Engles. The
Judge was on the side of the young folks
and finally helped to win over Miss Linwood
for her consent. The on-looker saw a change

was not always so high aud mighty after
all. At any rate, it was all most interesting
to watch, and the whole show was most

V. K Girls, League
PURPOSES of the Girls League are to pro-
mote friendliness among the girls and
to discuss and arrange matters of special in-
terest to the girls of the school. The organ-
ization also takes part in promoting the
activities of the student body as a whole.
Every girl in school belongs to the League.
Through their membership the girls have
an opportunity to learn the principles of
self government because they actually do
manage their own affairs with the guid-
ance of their sponsor.
The Girls' Council is made up of repre-
sentatives from each room. This Council
nominates the officers and discusses all
qirestions of interest to the girls and car-
ries these problems back to the home
rooms. The Executive Committee composed
of all League officers directs all activities.
The first semester officers were Virginia
Boyers, Ruth Glezen, Marguerite Brown
and Jean Pritchard. Second semester of-
ficers are: President, Marguerite Brown:
vice president, Jean Pritchard: secretary,
Leta Mae Lowe: treasurer, Gladys Dawes:
cabinet member, Doris Smith: health com-
missioner, Anna Maude Roberts.
The Big Sister Committee headed this
semester by Jean Pritchard and composed
of able 9A girls welcomes new girls and
helps them get aquainted.
The League has organized an honor club
this year. The girls have taken Betsy Ham-
ilton, wife of Alexander Hamilton, as their
inspiration and are to be known as the
Betsy Hamilton club. Only girls who have
given the school some distinguished service
are eligible to membership. The Charter
Members are Marguerite Brown, Elsie Lee
Margaret Studley, Gladys Dawes, Jean
Pritchard, Leta Mae Lowe, Verona Mc-

GIRL Reserves are the younger members
of the Y.W.C.A. They accept a purpose
and strive toward it, thinking of themselves
a reserve force getting ready for places of
leadership and responsibility in their homes,
schools, churches and communities.
The colors of the Girl Reserves are blue
and white formed in a triangle. By wear-
ing a blue triangle here in America, a girl
is sharing the responsibilty of girls around
the world in helping to bring about the

the name stands for, and for which Christ
would have us serve.
The purpose of the Girl Reserves is "To
Find and Give the Best." The slogan is

The girls are busy making preparations
for summer camp. We occasionally have
parties and banquets appropriate and in
keeping with the season. We have Council
Fires in which the girls take the various
ranks. A number of the girls have taken
the first rank, " Wood Gatherer " and those
who have not are working on the require-
ments. Those who are now "Wood Gath-

Every Saturday at Poly High School the
Camp Fire girls may go and swim in the
commodious plunge. There the girl who
earns the largest number of points is en-

girls earn these points by attendance and
by passing the various tests which are
called the pollywog, frog, flying fish and

THE EAGLE, the school paper, has been
issued tnis year under a uniuue and
interesting system. Miss Byrkit, Mrs. Mix
and Mr. Estabrook, faculty sponsors, plan-
ned each issue in advance and meted out
assignments, as part of the daily class work
to the various classes in English, Social
Studies, Mathematics, Shop, Music, Arts,
etc. The best articles from each class were
then submitted for the paper.
Miss Nesbit supervised the art work, and
theart students contributed many appro-
priate designs and borders.
The typing department co-operated gen-
erously, and the accurate copy work aided
our youthful printersin their efforts to put
together a commendable sheet.
The January number, a sample issue,
was well recieved and boosted circulation.
For February, the idea was patriotism car-
ried out in stories and borders. Easter pro-
wided a motif for the April paper with its
green cover design.
May, the final copy, gave us some inter-
esting vacation suggestions. Throughout
each paper were newsy reports of events
past and to come. Hamilton's doings in the
sports world were kept before the public in
an able manner. Lists of students who have
distinguished themselves in various ways
have been published from time to time,and
most interesting of all, there have been
pelnty of pictures---pictures of all sorts of
groups of us doing lots of things.

A Trip Tlwouglt I'lu.irrtlton.
IT WAS a rare spring day when my chum
and I first visited Hamilton Junior High
School. We agreed that it was a beautiful
modern school. It is surrounded by tropical
trees, plants, shrubs and flowers which add
to its beauty. The green lawn, which is
carefully kept, gives one the thought of
freshness. The buildings are built around
a large beautiful patio which has a lawn
with tropical trees and bushes planted in
the corners. As we went up the walk
which leads to the office door spring
flowers senta faint perfume to us.
We first visited the auditorium. We en-
tered a small foyer with entrances leading
to the main auditorium which seats approx-
imately nine hundred people. It is simple in
its beauty and yet of wonderful architecture.
Above and tothe rear of us was the balcony
with the projection room in the center. It
has two modern moving picture machines
which the loyal Hamiltonians helped buy.
The main offices are on the first floor of
the building. The first thing Inoticed as I
entered the main office door was a large
framed picture of Alexander Hamilton,
after whom this school is named. I also
visited the attendance clerk's office and
the offices of the Vice Principal and the
Dean of Girls. Mrs. Kast is the attendance
clerk and when anyone is absent or tardy
he must go to her office.
Mr. Wickham is the Vice-Principal and
Miss Healy is Dean of Girls. The Principal
of Hamilton is Mr. Hicks. His office had a
comfortable yet business-like appearance.
There was a neatly arranged desk and a
book case. In one corner was a table and
on it was a picture of his two little girls.
The American flag hung in another corner,
near the door.
We left the offices through a small anti-
room where notices and mail for the teach-
ers are placed.
We walked down the halls which are
about twelve feet wide with shining lock-
ers on the sides. Student Patrols are sta-
tioned at various places in the halls to keep
order and direct traffic between periods.
The Study Halls we found are much larg-
er than the ordinary class room and in
them we saw the students poring over
their books preparing their lessons. We
next went through the art rooms which are
beautifully arranged. The walls of the room
were covered with drawings which are
well worth studying. The one I liked best
was a water color, done in color shades, of
a peaceful country scene with mountains in
We visted an English class and found it
a typical classroom. The students were giv-
ing speeches. The next class we visited
was a 9A social studies class where the
students were studying United States gov-
ernment. We also visited a beginners typ-
ing class, a mathematics and a music class,
The gym which is for both boys and girls
is very large. The modern apparatus such
as the buck, side-horse, travelling rings,
climbing ropes, parallel bars and tumbling
mats gives every student a good chance to
develop physically. The boys' locker room
isa combined shower and dressing room. The
orthopedic gym is for boys with physical de-
fects that require special attention. This
gym has much apparatus upon which the
boys may work. These various things consist
of chest weights, stall bars, travelling ladder
and mats. We glanced at the playground
with basket ball courts, jumping pits, track,
and baseball diamond and then we passed
on to the shops.
The machine shop has modern machinery
that would make a mechanic green with
envy. The boys were making plumbs, ham-
mers, screw drivers and were working on
The electric shopis well supplied with ma-
chinery. This shop is conducted for the boys
who are interested in that subject. A series
of experiments covering the hookup of bells,
annunciators. telegraph and telephones are
carried on duringthe semester. We found

the boys constructing motors, radios and
The boys in sheet metal shop are taught
how to make useful household articles such
as dust pans, trays, match boxes and pans.
They also construct tin boats, autos and
The wood shop has a very fine equipment
which consists of two lathes, an electric
sander, band saw, drills, aplaner and grind
stone. The beginning classes had built
boats, surfboards and table lamps while
the older boys made funiture that is able to
complete with market furniture,
We next visited the print shop. Here
we found both boys and girls, printing
cards, setting type and cleaning rollers.
The print shop not only gives one ideas
and instructions of the printing trade but
also teaches better grammar, capitalization,
paragraphing and punctuation.
On entering the sewing rooms we were
surprised at the number of sewing ma.-
chines. The girls were working on dresses,
aprons and costumes. There are two cook-
ing rooms but we visited the one that was
occupied. Much to our delight we were
given tastes of the girls' wares which on
this particular day happened to be cake
and candy and we found them excellent.
These girls are taught how to get the best
results in cooking food stuffs and the most
sanitary way to cook them.
The cafeteria was our next stop. Here we
found the cooks prepa.ring the food. The
lunch hour we found is divided into two
periods and at lunch time the students line
up into three lines, each line leading to a
horseshoe serving table. The students take
trays, are served food, given a check and
they pay the cashier. They then seat them-
selves in the dining hall which is a very
busy place during lunch hour. There is also
a serving table for the teachers and a pri-
vate dining room for them.
Our last stop was the library. There the
students were enjoying a good reading per-
iod or looking up information for class
work. This library is of considerable size
and we did not expect to find as many
books as we did.
As we started to leave the library our
guide asked us if we wished to stay a few
minutes and see the flag ceremony. We
consented for we had heard about this
ceremony at Alexander Hamilton which is
known over the state of California. We went
to the window that looks over the patio. An
orchestra was assembled in the middle and
the musicans wore trim orange and black
sweaters. A trumpeter sounded the march
and the orchestra played while the students,
some fourteen hundred, marched to their
places. The ceremony was begun by the
singing of America, I Love You California.
and Hamilton Junior. As the last note died
away the call to the colors was blown and
each student placed his right hand over
his breast. A swell of patriotism surged in
my veins as Old Glory cameinto view. After
the salute the ceremony was ended by the
singing of the Star Spangled Banner. It was
a perfect tribute to Old Glory.
We attended a meeting of the Cabinet
which is part of the plan of the student
goverment at Hamilton. The Cabinet room
is very attractive. On the floor is beautiful
inlaid linoleum donated by the Parent-
Teachers Association. The members sat on
benches around a beautiful walnut table
made by the wood shop boys. These six are
also of walnut and were made in the wood
shop. In the corner of the room was a
walnut console with a vase of spring
flowers on it. This cabinet room was de-
signed by the art teachers.
We went home feeling that our. time at
Hamilton had been well spent.

IN CLASSES A and C the boys from
Hamilton, reviewing previous triumphs.
made a beeline for the championship from
start to finish. Sweeping all into the void
the Eagles and Eaglets raced on to take a.
monopoly on the cup-awarding. This is the
third time the varsity, and the second time
that the Midgets, have been the big bugs
, CLASS A
WITH six lettermen returning, Hamil-
ton took a new lease on life and con-
tinued in the way that won them champion-
ships in 1926 and 1927. The 1929 outfit began
by downing Jefferson, 12 to 9. Following
this, Hamilton secured an 18 to 12 victory
over Franklin. When the Avalon squad
came over, Hamilton gave it a one-sided
beating of 25 to 7. Edison was the next to
come in quest of victory, but was defeated,
21 to 11.
The next game, the championship game
with Jefferson, was a brilliant and hard-
fought battle. Scores were parallel until
the last minute of the game, when a sen-
sational throw won the 1929 championship
for Hamilton over Jefferson, 12 to 11.
Outof the 88 points captured by the Ham-
ilton outfit, Shuber, former middleweight,
hung up a total of 46 points, Fawcett, 185
Miller, 13: Barnett, 7: and Montoya. 4.
With five lettermen returning, the Hamil-
ton squad started with a l2-2 victory over
Jefferson. Hamilton continued gathering
lain-els until they wound up with the class
B championship cup which the Bees had
so long delayed in getting.
In the following games the Hamilton outfit
emerged victor: over Franklin, 8 to 2 and
over Edison, 17 to 6. The Bees then went
to Wilson to down Washington in a decisive
fashion with a 17 to 8 cinch.
Captan Clark led his team with a total
of 25 points out of the 54 by his squad.
Browning scored 16g Hoos, 103 and Hess,3.
With only one letterman returning, the
Midgets, following in the path of their el-
ders. stepped off with some classy playing
and nabbed the championship cup for the
Jefferson was the first to take a beating
-at the hands of the locals, with a score of
8 to 4. Franklin took an 8 to4 loss, Edison
received a 6 to 4 defeat, and Dewey a 10
to 2 ducking. The Midgets then journeyed
with their big brothers to Wilson, and keep-
ing in style, downed Jefferson, 10 to 4.
The boys all staged a fine season, as you.
can see by these scores. Takahashi led,
with 12 out of the 40 points made by the
team. Rosenbnrg and Hadley each totaled
10 points. Duprey scored 6, and Harnble 2.
AFTER emerging with victory in all of
the dual meets, Hamilton nabbed the
greatest number of points in the All-City
Track and Field Classic. The heavies finish-
ed second, lackingone-fourth of a poi, t to an-
nex the championship and the middle-
weights tool: a close fourth. The Midgets
received a third place.
Hamilton has shown great improvement
over last yea:-'s track and field work. Nev-
ertheless, competition this year in the All-
City tilt was keener than it has ever been
Urrutia and Huggins were the main-
springsin the varsity divison as half-milers

took third in the furlong. Montoya staged
a fine race to capture first in the hurdles
with Barber fifth. Barber also won fifth in
the high sticks. McGee won fifth in the
broad jump event, and Cissne won in the
jump establishing a new record. Lacy com-
pleted the scoring with a second in the
The class B squad put up a shaky tattle,
first leading, then gradually declining,
but landing a close fourth, lacking only one
point of nabbing second place. Points were
made by Dyer, fourth in the shot: Cilley
and Duprey, second and fourth in the high
jump: Rutt and Rasmus, third and fourth
in the low obstacle race: Rasmus, record-
breaking first in the broad jump, and a
fourth won by the relay team.
Stephenson did a solo of ten points, lead-
ing the Midgets scoring with victories
in the fifty and seventy-five yard dashes.
Ripperdan nabbed second in the broad
jump. The remaining points were made by

HAMILTON'S home-run poundersopened
up the 1929 season by annexing a flashy
victory over Jefferson. The victors fell to
the short end of a 7-2 battle. Scores were
close until the last inning, when the Eagles
Continuing, thelocal downed Franklin
1-0. The run entered for Hamilton was

made by Takahashi. The stellar perform-
ers in the batting fields have been Taka-
hashi, who scored three runs: and Hess,
totaling 2. Christensen, List and Franklin
each rang up one run.
With six lettermen returning, the Eagles
have a fine chance to win the champion-
ship, and should repeat the triumphs on
the three previous seasons.
Muir is the regular moundsman: with
Christensen, catcher: Hernandez, Taka-
hashi, and McGee, first, second and third
sackers: Hess, short-stop and Combs, List
and Franklinaas fielders racking him.
The Class C outfit backed down from its
last years position. due to the lack of ex-
perienced players. First Jefferson chewed
up the locals, 7-4: then Franklin, defeated
last year, caught the weasel napping and
bounced Hamilton, 4-2. The Eaglets took
the back track, but they faced the music:
they have a brick in the hat somewhere.
No lettermen returned to the lightweight
division, but from the prospects, Salveson
and Havenstrite were chosen hurlers: Rip-
perdan, catcher: Sahr, Hill and Wneeler,
first, second and third basemen: Hendricks,
short-stop: and Erikson, Cecil and Buckles,
With these teamsters victorous, victories
ought to be grabbed from the remaining
competitors. Up to date Hill has made two
runs: Sahr, two: Salveson, one: and Buckles
COACH Cline's Acrobats began practice
at the first of the semester. After
steering through handicaps and weeding
out some of the less talented material,
three championship-threatening teams have
been developed. Prospects are good and
the Hamilton gym teams are determined to
uphold Hamilton traditions and nab cups
in all three divisions.
With only one letterman returning in the
Class A division a flashy team of strong
performers has been developed. Most of
the old steller performers were lost by
Four lettermen returned to continue to
earn laurels in class B, as they did last year

The class C group took a new lease on life
when some peppy performers reported for

Girl.-S, Pltysiccil. Education
EMBLEMS, chevrons, letters, stars!
These awards mean a great deal to
Hamilton girls. They mean months or even
years of work in health and physical ac-
tivities. The girl who wins even the least
of these fthe embleml must have many of
the following characteristics: She must
have good health, be active in athletic ac-
tivities, bea leader, be dep :ndable and have
perseverence. "The harder we work for any-
thing, the more we appreciate it." Surely
Hamilton girls are proud of their emblems,
chevrons, letters and stars.
Most of the points for the awards have
been won outside of class work. After-
school playground offers every girl a chance
to have a healthy body, a good time and a
school award. This year more girls have
stayed for playground than ever before.
The first semester Mable Ratcliff was
commissioner of girls' athletics. Mary Jane
Tharpe and Carmella Iantorno were Chief
Color Captains. The second semester Anna
Maude Roberts was Comissioner with Lucille
Smith and Gail Yingling as chief Color Cap-
tains.These officers have usually had train-
ing as squad leaders or color captains. They
have many duties. They must know the
rules of every game which is played in
Hamilton as they are often called upon to
referee. On team nights they organize
teams and put them to work on the field.
During the tournaments they have complete
charge of appointing referees, time keepers
and score keepers.
In the fall, volley ball was played the
first quarter, and basket ball the second.
The 9A class that went to High School in
February won the championship in both of
these games. Soccer, the most popular game
of the year, was played the third quarter.
In order to take care of the large numbers
attending, Thursday was added as an extra
team night. The last game of the tourna-
ment was played April 12 beween the 9As
and 9Bs. Neither team had been defeated.
After a close and exciting game the 9A team
won, score-3 to 1. Baseball is the last game
of the year and as most Long Beach girls
have played it from the first grade up, there
is sure to he some very good playing in the
Tuesday night is "Free-play" night at
the gymnasium. Every girl can do the thing
that she likes best. Mats, ropes, rings and
other pieces of apparatus are in use. Many
novel stunts and games are played. Every
girl votes Tuesday the most popular play
The big event of the year was the Flag
Drill at Poly High. Over one hundred
Hamilton girls took part in it and the
basket ball game at the Mass Health Dem-
onstration during Education Week. The
drill was practiced almost entirely in play-
ground time. When Hamilton's hundred
girls joined the seven hundred from the
other secondary schools the drill was by far
the most beautiful every given in Long
Beach. The flags whirled in five different
figures to the tune of "Stars and Stripes
Forever". After the drill all of the girls
sang "I Love You Calforniaf' Arrange-
ments are being made to get points for be-
ing in this drill.
Next year let us try to have more emblem,
chevron, letter, and star girls than ever
T H E I-IAMILTONIAN
Honor: Heaitim Club
THE Honor Health Club is a growing or-
ganization for girls, which has as its
primary objective the betterment of our
school by raising its health standard. We
wish to create an interest in health and all
the benefits which go with it.
Perfect health is a most important tool in
building a good education and means effi-
ciency and happiness.
Every girl is urged to find out her physi-
cal rating by reporting for this purpose on
any Thursday afternoon throughout the
school ye ar.
Those who are not successful in passing
every part of the many difficult tests re-
lating to posture, spine, feet, nutrition
levidenced in color and condition of skin,and
weightl eyes, ears, nose,throat and teeth,
are told just how the desired results may be
obtained and urged to report again, for a
re-check. In some cases, it may require
considerable time for successful accomp-
lishment but the honor attained, the great-
er usefulness in service to others, and the
fun of being an H. H. C. member is worth
'Ihe service side of the club activities
is worked out through its organization and
also through very friendly social contact
with those outside the club.
Part of the fun comes in the monthly
luncheons with entertainment features, and
also through social affairs such as the H.
H. C. Hi Jinks party given to all girls in
school, on May 1. One or more such good
times is being planned as a part of each
year's activities. The H. H. C. Annua
Banquet, which is city-wide, and has as its
guests the Principals and Superintendent
Stephens, is always a big affair.
A bit of fun at the Hi J inks has been shown
in our H.H.C. pictures. Our gym assumed
a most festive appearance: Aclown with
wooden hands and another with electricity
in her finger tips were most cordial in shak-
ing hands with everybody. Other clowns
labeled us at once, so our education would
be advanced, by attendance at one of four
colleges: The Tillie Toilers, The Winnie
Winkles,The Orphan Annies and the Dumb
Doras. Each college sent its best athletes to
compete in the most difficult feats and stunt
known to these renownedinstitutions.
There were police who arrested persons
for jay walking, for fishing without ali-
cense, for speeding. parking overtime, re-
sisting an officer, etc. Such offenders were
taken at once to the police station, where
their cases were tried and penalties imposed.
Special vaudeville numbers were given,
includiug the Doctor Magician with wonder-

a dance number proving his ability to sus-
