S I Piv- ONIAN Mid-year Graduates 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 JLLY19 THE commencement exercises of Ham- ilton Junior High 9A class will be held in the school auditorium, Friday Evening, June 14, 1929. Three hundred thirty-two pupils will re- ceive their diplomas on the platform from our Principal, Mr. Hicks. Out of this num- ber to be graduated one hundred eighty- three are girls and one hundred forty-nine are boys. 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- dents have during the year where nearly all are present. This banquet will be held in the school cafeteria which will be decorated in the school colors. 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 luck. Graduates 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- tresses. 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 honor organization. The ninth grade boys have been very for- tunate in their athletics. They have not lost a game this year to any other school.

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 Page more agreeable social feeling within the school, to extend Hamilton hospitality to all new students. Secretary of Safety---In charge of fire- drills, street crossings, patrol and Health Log reports. 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- blies. 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.

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. Sincerely yours. December 5, 1928. James Edward Rogers. . Page Tn-fntv-:ml C-.QM Scholavsltip E 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- ed accordingly. 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- ship. 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 Continued on Page 47 Pun Tlirly THE HAVIII. ' Q. ,531 1. . s ,si .n ..

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 confidence. 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. Barbara Moffett.

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 ship's officers are: Howard Esta- brook, president: Ralph Aston, vice pres- ident: Billy Gray, secretary- sergeant at- arms. At present there are sixty-four boys in the club. However we have many waiting for a chance to join the ship's crew. Billy Gray. Pan Thirl 1-leur THE H! tpolitinal, Tea. 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 garden gate. 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. ment ofa Colonial home of the wealthier class. 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 here. In this act Patty gained her point through craft and the heaviest part of the action for the leads took place in act two. One was very much interested here, watching the development of the plot: the anxiety to see Patty gain her information about her aunt's tea-drinking and finally force her to consent to her marriage with David Mason, a min- ute man.You see Patty and David knew 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 in Miss Linwood's affection. Maybe she 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 enjoyable. Barker and Liza, the two colored servants furnished abundant humor and gave many a laugh: not only in what they said but what they did. There were one hundred and four people in the cast: wonderful new scenery, gor- geous new costumes and as all Hamilton plays, a worthy production. The matinee preformances were given on May 15 and 17. The leading characters were: Miss Amanda Linwood ............ Evalyn Prine Barker ................. ............ .... R 0 bert Barton Judge Engels ........................... Bob Mclnnis David Mason ........................... Alfred Milton Patty, niece of Miss Linwood ...... Patty Peck Liza ......................................... Roberta Ferris In addition there were 8 minuet dancers, 14 reel dancers, 6 French dancers, 8 fid- dlers and the quartet. Plz: Thirty-pin l Q I 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: Pug: 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- Kluskie, Ruth Mayes, Anna Maude Roberts Doris Smith, Mary Wood, Frances Kennedy Ruth Glezen, Georgia Burkhardt. Thirty-:ix 'I' I-I E HA IN Girl I-Resewes 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 Kingdom of Friendly Citizens. This is what 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 "Face Life Squarelyf' Our code is: AS A GIRL RESERVE - I Will Try To Be ---- Gracious in manner Impartial in judgment Ready for service Loyal to friends Reaching toward the best Earnest in purpose Seeing the beautiful Eager for knowledge Reverent to God Victorious over self Ever dependable Sincere at all times: In Hamilton Junior High School we have three groups of Girl Reserves. The clubs are: "Jolly Hikers," Sth and 9th grade club, sponsored by Mrs. Snider, a teacher in Hamilton. '1'he "Live Wire," an 8th and 9th grade club, sponsored by Mrs. Pulley, and our newest club is the Seventh club, whose sponsor is Miss Starr. Each club holds its meeting at Hamilton on a certain day. We have Girl Reserves in China,Japan, Turkey, India, the Philippines, Belgium, the Baltic States, South America, and else- where. Girl Reserves, you see, are interna- tional. In keeping with this idea we had a "Trip Around the World" at which our fathers were our guests. We also had a Camp Five AMP FIRE isa nation-wide organiza- tion for the girls who strive to uphold the better principles of life. In our school we have a branch of this organization. The girls do many interesting things. They make bead and leather head bands to help fulfill the qualifications for the first rank a Camp Fire girl can attain, "Wood Gathererf' . Before they could make their headbands the girls had to select Indian names and symbols. They had a great deal of fun in doing this. The names were symbolic of things the girls wanted to do or be, or their ideals. At Christmas the girls made in various ways very attractive cards which they sent away. The Camp Fire girls have ceremonial gowns and they are now earning honors with which to decorate them. 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- ers" are working for "Fire Maker" rank. 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- tilzled to a free week at summer camp. The girls earn these points by attendance and by passing the various tests which are called the pollywog, frog, flying fish and dolphin tests.

A. program and be- came a member of the Hi Y League. The purpose of this club is to promote clean speech, clean sports and clean habits among its members and the students of our Junior High School. In addition, the club aims to help the members develop physically, mentally, socially and spirit- ually. Meetings were held regularlly on Tuesday evenings until last semester. This semester the club was unable to obtain the use of the Hamilton gymnasium for its activities, therefore, the meetings have been held on the call of the president or the sponsor. Officers are elected once each semester. The officers for last semester were: presi- dent, Earl Hoosg vice-president, Milton Balsiger: secretary, Bill Fessendeng treas- urer, Joe Rosenbergg custodian, Erwin Hand icva THE Handicraft Club is one of ouroldest organizations, having been formed the second semester the first year our school existed. It has always had a membership of from twenty-four to thirty girls, and each semester a waiting list supplies the new members as graduation takes out old ones. Many beautifulas well as useful gifts have been made: and the girls have learned the art of creating attractive gifts at a very small cost. Many friends of the mem- bers of this club, especially the girls' mothers Shuberg sargeant-at-arms, George Fawcett reporter, John Clark. The officers for this semester are: presi- dent, David Bordenp vice-president, Don Hadley: secretary and reporter, Robert Ruttg treasurer, John Jarvis: custodian, Milo Lacygsargeant-at-arms, Ralph Hess. Mr. Cline has been sponsor of the club since it was first organized. The club enters teams in the Junior Hi YLeag'ue at the Y.M.C.A. The athletic events of the year are basketball, baseball, swim meets and a track meet. Twice each year the club takes trips to Kamp Kole, or to the mountains in that vicinity. Several times a year a Hi Yp banquet is held at the Y.M.C.A. These banquets have been very popular with the boys and they have helped to promote a better feeling of fellowship among the members of the Hi Y Clubs of the dif- ferent schools. While the Hamilton Hi Y will lose many of its members by the spring graduation, there will be a strong group to resume ac- tivities next fall. Robert Rutt, reporter. it Club have received more attractive gifts than otherwise, through the skill the girls have acquired in work done in the club. The last semester of this year the club has taken over the workshop part of the school play, and has rendered valuable assistance to the production by making flowers, wigs, and hats, and assisting generally with the cos- tumes. When the play is finished, the mem- bers will again turn to their individual pro- jects, and finish them before the close of school. Pan Thirty-rlzlu Tr-ui . HAMILTONIAN ' Junioc High School 'Aviation Club THREE years ago Mr. Hicks, our Princi- pal, requested the organization of School Clubs at Hamilton. Mr. Hodgdon organized the Aviation Club and since that time a large number has joined. In addition to the regular purpose of the clubs the Aviation Club aims to find out what fields will train the club members nto useful life activities along Aviation iines. The following items show in what the boys are active in order to accomplish the work assigned them: English lnote booksl Science, Chemis- try, Mathematics, Meteorology, Navigation, Electric woik. Snldering, brazing, magneto work, freehand drawing, mechanical draw- - ing, art design, sheet metal work, wood- work, propeller making, and history of aviation. Halbert Martinson has designed and made an electrical swivel that makes it pos- sible for the club members to fly the Dir- igible-Aeroplane. The new ship is now being studied by the members of the club and general science classes. The means of propulsion is by vacuum motor. These same motors will be used and model aeroplane propellers attached and their action studied. Frank Kerns is making a pattern of the propellers. These will be cast in aluminun at a local foundry. The science of air movementis now being studied. Pngu Thirlyeuin I W 7Amnun.l Stuff' 1 i1AtTLTLLlCli. Staff, THE Annual staff has been busy work- ing on the Hamiltonian that is published in June.

By Marguerite Brown The Engle 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.

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 the back-ground. 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 automobile motors. 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 . l'nge- Fri rly-1 mi I Ti-it i-IAMILTONIAN X the boys constructing motors, radios and transformers. 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 other articles. 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. Alfred Milton.

They had on no stockings, did things with l.eir toes. Said Ito myself, "What's this?" Goodness knows l For soon they were doing some queer little marches. On foot boards, they call 'em to strengthen their arches. They told me they soon would climb moun- tains and boulders, And all must grow strong, with the finest shoulders. And they also told me, "Alas and Alack! 'Tis a dreadful disgrace not to have a straight back!" And lsaid, "You do things that are rer- tainly great!" "Yes indeed," they replied, "see this chart for our weight? We are looking ahead to a wonderful time And that's why this red line must climb, climb and climb ' Do you want to know more of our work?

This branch of the student govern- ment has a faculty sponsor and meets ev- ery Wednesday at section time. It is the duty of the House members to carry back to their respective states, any information, Pun For brought up in the meeting, which may be useful or interesting to the students in their states. If a member of the cabinet has any valuable information for the student body, he may give his talk to the House of Representatives and the next day the members of the House will say the same thing to the students of the state which they represent.

The decorations are carried out in the Schol- arship colors, which are pink and green. Any student who succeeds in making ten points, and who does not have a "C" in deportment or in any of his subjects is admitted to membership. A student who makes fourteen or more points becomes a Honorary member of the Honorary Cluh, which is composed of a group of the best scholars in school. The sponsors of the society are Mrs. Griswold and Miss Sutherland. The offices of the society are selected from the three pupils receiving the highest number of points. The one who has the highest number becomes president: the second highest vice-president, and the third highest becomes secretary. The officers for the semester ending in 1929, were: Ver- ona McLuskie, president: Georgia Burk- hardt, vice-president: Vera Mullins, sec- retary. Arline Glaze was ourrepresentative to the Federation Council. - . Officers for the semester endiug in June, 1929 are: Ruth Mayes, president: Georgia Burkhardt, vice-pres.: Verona McLuskie secretary. Robert Rutt is the representa- tive to the Federation. The aim of the society is to promote bet- ter Scholarship among the. pupils of the school. Considered from this angle, Schol- arship represents one of the biggest fac- tors for success in the school and as such, it deserves the hearty co-operation of every student. :mm Tl-IE HAMILTONIAN I'IcLmiI.bOnLcLn Gtctssifieci 'Page BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIIB SPECIAL THIS WEEK --- June 10-14, diplomas for those who qualify.

Sweeping all into the void the Eagles and Eaglets raced on to take a. Bell monopoly on the cup-awarding. This is the third time the varsity, and the second time that the Midgets, have been the big bugs Speedball circles. Basl-:et 'Ball , 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 mg 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. CLASS B. 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 4' Fifu'-liz-a Tl-IE HAVIILTONIAN 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. CLASS C 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 fourth consecutiveyealz 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. TUGlClC. 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 Nec mn. 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 before. M Urrutia and Huggins were the main- springsin the varsity divison as half-milers they won third and fourth places in the all- city track meet. McCain and McGee copped tnird and fourth in the fifty. while Davis Lbrzrz TH E HAMILTONIAN Hclmiiton Track Tecufns and McCain furnished second and third places in the century. Davis won and Lacy 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 leap. 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 the relay team which took third in the half- mile. The scores of the dual meets: Franklin 114 1-2, Hamillon 1341-2: Edison 26 1-2 Hamilton 441-23 Jefferson 1101-2, Ham- ilton 132: Washington 201-2, Hamilton 50 1-2.

Baseball 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 Pale close until the last inning, when the Eagles forged ahead. Continuing, thelocal downed Franklin 1-0. The run entered for Hamilton was nn,--fm I 'rr-15 I-IAMILTONIAN X Gylll TQG.l11.S 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. CLASS C 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, fielders. 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 one. ' Gyl'N Ci.-GCLFYLS 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 graduation. Four lettermen returned to continue to earn laurels in class B, as they did last year when the Hamilton gymnasts won the mid- dleweight cup, The class C group took a new lease on life when some peppy performers reported for practice. Among them came one letterman. fag: Fifty-fx Tl-IE l-IAIVIILTONIAN 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 tournament. 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 ground night. 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 before. Pd!! Fifi!-sit T H E I-IAMILTONIAN Pap Filly-:even THE HAIVIILTONII-RN 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 it all. '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 Page Fill,-. 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- ful powersof heautifying those sadly afflict- ed with transmagnify-cando-bundanciality, or oroptical toptical, electro-scoptical fantas- magoria, etc. The dwarf was exhibited in a dance number proving his ability to sus- pend himself in mid air. We were fortunate in securing the Goops, a hardly human spe- cies, who entertained in strange songs and dance. The accomplished tight rope walker braved her perils in true form: and it is sel- dom the privilege of any school to witness the work of such a splended Inverted Quartette who could sing beautifully while standing on their heads. In the latter part of the program hilarity reigned when everybody present took an active part. ' - . The club sponsor, Miss Beard, was assist- ed by Mrs. Howe and Mrs. Harriman. H. H.
