The Alhambra City Charter provides for the election of the Board of Educa-
tion. The Board's duties, powers, and manner of functioning are, however, con-
trolled by the state laws regulating the administration of all public schools.
Our local Board consists of tive members, elected by vote of the electors of
the district-Our Board governs two school districts, the Alhambra City School
District, comprising all of the City of Alhambra and most of Monterey Park, and
the Alhambra City High School District, which embraces all of Alhambra, Mont-
erey Park, Garvalia School District and San Gabriel School District. The two
districts, elementary and high schools do not coincide.
Under the elementary system there are 4234 pupils enrolled, requiring the
employment of 114 teachers. These are housed in eight schools in different sec-
tions of the district- .
Park School Garfield Avenue School
Ramona School Granada School
Freemont School Central School
Inez School. Marengo Avenue School
The Alhambra City High School has an enrollment of 1895 pupils requiring
the employment of 81 teachers.
It is for the purpose of administering the affairs of these districts that the
Board exists. It meets in regular sessions on the first and third Thursday even-
ings of each month, and in special sessions at such times as business requires.
It is the duty of the Board to devote its energies and judgment to the solving
of the school problems. It is likewise the duty of every citizen to lend all possible
aid in advancing the interests of the schools, to attend meetings, to offer sugges-
tions, and to advance friendly and constructive criticism. Co-operation is neces-
sary to success.
The schools are growing rapidly, and with the growth new problems are con-
tinually confronting those interested. It should be the business of each to assist
to the limit of his ability.
BOARD OF EDUCATION,
E. L. Farmer, President.

WINTER CLASS OF '25
Alhambra High was aroused from her slumbers to Find that she had another
peppy class-The IVinter Class of 1925.
Not until a year before our graduation was our class organized and recognized
as a real class of A. H. S.
Though we were small we turned out wonderfully in all line of activities.
During our career we had a large representation in track and without our
fellows A. H. S. could never have been so successful in track. In basketball we
had a Hne showing both in teams and in the grandstand. The coach will agree
that we made some valuable contributions to football.
Qur class has also been well represented on the Spotlight and Alhambra Staff,
and many of the official student body offices.
One of the most successful events of A. H. S. was our class play, "The
This was a financial success, enabling us to present a wonderful Class Nite
as well as our school gift and commencement program.
XVe feel proud of our record. Although we hate to leave dear old A .H. S.
We are glad we are able to depart and leave a successful and boastful record.
Much credit for our success should be given to Mrs. Clements our class
adviser, who was always ready to help.
Ted Conner, President.

In the year 1921 there filed on the campus some 300 new students. Although
childish and green in some way, it did not take long for the upper classmen to
realize that the summer class of '25 was going to be one of the very best classes
that ever was graduated.
XVe were represented in every branch of sport and school activity from the
very beginning. The First thing we did was to win the championship in debating.
Also the tennis team was almost composed of all Freshmen. In basketball, we
were represented in all three divisions.
Passing as a dream, our first year went, and we came to school with heads
high, for, behold, we were sophs. Starting off the year right, we got one hundred
percent student body membership. This year we were just beginning to get our
stride. lVe were represented in all varsity squads. This year, the sophs won the
championship in the inter-class basketball. VVith only one exception, this same
team won the championship of Southern California in the Lightweight division.
The Spotlight and the Annual were given big support from our class.
School was starting again. At last we were upper-classmen. Realizing our
responsibility we dug in and passed a most successful year. Giving the seniors
a close race we got a hundred percent student body membership. Our strength
was beginning to tell in athletics and we beat the seniors in a football game, to
our great joy. This year our fellows began to shine in debating, composing about
half the squad. In basketball there were four junior lettermen. This team played
in the Southern California playoffs. Presenting our first dramatic ability "Adam
and live" was played and proved a great success. In baseball there were six
lettermen representing the class, and the tennis team was entirely of juniors. The
seniors were again beaten by the respected juniors in a paper drive held by the
Parent-Teacher Association. The junior dance held in honor of the seniors was
a huge success.
At last our senior year started. Looked upon as the leaders of the school
we labored through our last year to keep the standards of A. H. S. the highest
in Southern California. In football it took the whole school to hold the seniors
to a tie. It was a bloody battle, and when the smoke of battle rose, neither team
had won. XVe got, as all the seniors do, the hundred percent student body the
lirst morning of the new semester. The debating team was composed of seniors
mostly, and won debates right and left. The basketball team had four seniors on
the first squad, and this team went into the finals of the Southern California.
The track team had a major representation, and the baseball team about seven
lettermen from the class of '25. It is considered one of the strongest teams in
Southern California. In one of the most hotly contested paper drives ever held,
the seniors defeated the juniors. "Polly with a Past,', presented by the seniors,
proved to be the best play ever given by a senior class.
Leaving behind a splendid record, some of us will be going to college, and
into the business world, but we can never forget the happy times we had in A. H. S.
The general success of this year is due largely to our popular class teacher
Mr. YX'ood. NVe thank him for what he has done for us in making this a success-
ful year. The class also extends their thanks to the faculty and the P. T. A. for
their willing co-operation. As we pass out of high school we wish the greatest
of success and the best of luck to the succeeding classes, and know that they will
do their best for the prosperity of A. H. S.
FRED BOWERS, Prvsidrnt
Owing to a gradual swelling of the head, heaviness of the heart, turning of
the disposition and weakness of the knees, we the class of '25 do solemnly and in
all dignity prepare to pass out.
In memory of the chastisement, punishment and discipline inflicted upon us
by the faculty, and of the humble yearning worship felt for us by the three
classes, Frosh, Sophs and Juniors, respectively, we do gravely make and publish
this our last will and testament, hereby revoking and making void all former wills
by us at any time heretofore made:
Item, to the school at large: All traces of our passing: hand made wood
cuts on desks and chairs, numerous gum wads under said articles of furniture,
valuable manuscripts to be used as subjects for intelligence tests, and the happy
memory of everything we ever said, did, or thought while imprisoned within the
four boundaries of A. H. S.
Item, to the class of '26: The privilege of following in our footsteps, our
seats in assembly, and the following poem found in the halls of fame.
Ho! Ho! you rascally Senior kids,
You egotistic bunch of pills,
. Hark what we say,
Mark every word,
For we possess the power that stills,
Down yonder stands the office door,
VVithin, sits Papa Routt in state,
He'll eat you up
Unless you're good,
Behold! with him does rest your fate.
Now here's the proposition:
We'll make you work both night and day,
For everything you get you'll pay,
We'll make the lessons hard and long
And keep you in if they're done wrongg
We'll never give you more than threes,
If possible we'll make them C'sg
We'll do our best to spoil your fun,
But list, dear students, when we're done, V
You'll find 'twas meant for your own good,
We'd treat you better if we could.
'twas signed fOh sadly, we confessj
Byithe faculty of A. H. S.
Item, to the Sophs: The advice that they mind their teachers and keep their
eyes ever on the example set by the Seniors of '25.
Item, to the Freshies: The responsibility of chaperoning the faculty on all
wild beach and mountain partiesg also, the suggestion that said Frosh outdo the
Sophs in everything that comes along.
Dick Rhoades wills his all-around athletic ability to Phil Mills.
Marion Garrison wills her Freckle Cream and Henna lioani Shampoo.
Hardie Gramatky bequeaths unto Milton Morris the responsibility of taking
care of all pen work and chalk talking required by the school.
.lack Guppy leaves his girlish ligure. the part in his hair and his subsequent
popularity to Sam Solleder.
Maryedith leaves the Annual.
Chester Warden leaves his classical profile.
Fred Bowers bequeaths his ability for basket shooting and public speaking
to anyone who can develop his proficiency in each.
Herb johnson leaves that school girl complection.
George XYhite bequeaths the monopoly of lfrcshman hazing to anyone who
can develop his adaptness at it.
Dorothy NYatson leaves her desire to come back and talte 21 l'. G. at A. H. S.
And we all leave our slang, our faults and our eccentricities.
Xlie do hereby constitute and appoint Mr. Xkood, Senior Class adviser, as
sole executor of this our last will and testament.
ln witness whereof, we. the class of '25, have set our hand and seal. this
day in June, one thousand. nine hundred and twenty-live.

WINTER CLASS OF '26
The XVinter Class of 'Zo is the largest mid-year group to be graduated from
A. H. S., numbering about 75 students.
As a class, we have not as yet accomplished a great deal, but we have been
well represented in all lines of school activity.
Many of the fellows have been prominent in baseball, basketball, football and
track. XVallace Glidden high point man in track and next years track team cap-
tain, Edward Tandy as the leaders of the newly organized gym club, are R12
Helen Kendall, a veteran interscholastic dehater, is a member of this class,
while the honor roll holds the names of many 'XV 26 students.
Several of the girls of the class have taken leading parts in Girls Athletics
this year. Ruth Pageler, Vice-president of the Girls' League and A12 represen-
tative elect is winter graduate.
The success of the Annual and Spotlight, two worthy school features has
been due in part to the work of some of the members of the class. The Junior
Play, "The Successful Calamity" of last semester, was played with great success.
, VVe can do little as a whole until next year. when as graduating Seniors, we
take our place in the front ranks of school activities.
The class appreciates the honor of having Mrs. Clements as class adviser, her
association with it's members being one of the pleasant factors of the class life.

THE JUNIOR CLASS
The class of '26 started off the year with flying colors. The class has en-
deavored to uphold the high traditions of the previous Junior classes of A. H. S.,
and has been very successful at its endeavor. In all of the activities throughout
the year we have achieved our purpose ard we feel that we have been a credit to
The first big event of the year, the paper-driver, was won by the Seniors and
Sophs by only a very small margin. Next we tied the seniors in the annual foot-
ball game. Again, much to the Seniors sorrow, the Juniors triumphed over the
other three classes in the inter-class track meet. XVe overwhelmed the Seniors in
the round of inter-class debates. The junior play, "The Successful Calamity"
was a great success, winning the approval of all. The junior-Senior Dance, the
biggest social event of the year, proved that the class of '26 is capable of putting
over anything it attempts. The decorations for the dance were carried out in the
japanese motiff and were most effective.
Much of the credit of the Junior class is due to the co-operation and help of
our class advisers, Miss lirvine and Mr. McAlpine.

1Ye have been sophomores for one whole year and have gloried in the thought.
XVe have not attained the place which we have so much desired in the past.
Although our path has been rough and stony throughout freshman and sophomore
years, we can now look back and see how much we have accomplished.
On September 17, 1024, we entered with an enrollment of 260, determined
to make the most of our sophomore year. There has been quite a decrease of
the number in the class, from live hundred to two hundred aid sixty. The reason
for the decrease since last year was that each class was divided into A and B
1Ye started the year out right by getting a 10017 Student liody in our class
before the A10 and only two periods behind the 1311's. ln the second semester
we were even more successful by getting ahead of both junior classes in the drive
for 100W Student Body tickets.
Although our social affairs were few and far between, the ones we did have
were well worth while. Among the number was a skating party which everybody
who attended had a good time. A picnic is to be held at lirookside Park in the
On November 1 there was a paper drive put on under the auspices of the
Parent Teacher's Association. The sophomores and seniors united in competition
against the freshman and juniors. The sophomores and seniors came out vie-
torious and divided the reward between them.
ln athletics we set a shining example for those who will soon follow in our
footsteps. ln football we were well represented by having three regulars on the
heavyweight team and four players on the lightweight team. Th first basketball
team was honored by having two of our classmen on the squad. The lightweights
also had three of our men, while the flea weights had four of our men. In the
lnter Class Track Meet we came in second with 31 points to the ju:iior's 51. In
the Central League Track Meet four men from A. H. 9. won points, two of the
numbers being sophs. In baseball live of our class members were on the first
In debating we also did our part by having one man on the first team.
ln conclusion. may we extend our appreciation for all that has been done for
us especially to Miss Kemper who has been our class adviser during' this year,
and who has helped us out of all our difficulties.

The Freshman Class of any school is always considered very green and
"dumb," but sometimes you find a a Freshman class that finds the spirit of tlie
rest of the school a week or two after entering that school, and that is just what
has happened in A. H. S.
NVe came in the largest Freshman class the school has ever known, and im-
mediately became citizens of the High School by getting IOOWJ Student Body
membership. That alone is a record to be proud of but we didn't stop at that
but went out to see what laurels we could win in Athletics. The school wasn't
disappointed in us along that line for we acquired success in everything under-
XVe were represented in Football, having several of our members on the
lightweight team as "regulars" On the basketball teams we were equally suc-
cessful and not very far behind in Track. Due to the excellent coaching and
wonderful ability of coach "Bo" XVilson we were able to turn out the best Fresh-
man basketball team Alhambra Hi has ever had.
XVC feel that with these records behind us we will haxle no difficulty in filling
the places of Seniors when our time comes.
Our debating record is well worth remembering as two members of the
Freshman Class won the interclass championship of the school having defeated
the juniors in the final debate.
Our wonderful record could only have been obtained in one way and that was
through co-operation. We knew very little about that when we entered High
School, but have been ably coached by our class teacher Mr. Green. XYe owe
much of our success to him, and the Freshman class wishes to take this time to
thank Mr. fireen for his help and his appreciation of our troubles, without him
all this could not have beei accomplisliezl.

STARDOM A LA AVOIRDUPOIS
Q5 LEMENTINE ANGELINE PEMBERTON had two distinc-
5 'VA if tive features. The first was her name of which she was most in-
T is . ,Q ordinately proud. The second was her size, for Clementine An-
l 'Xiiv Y geline was fatg and despite her soft brown eyes and nice smile
v that fact remained-its truth was indisputable-'it was, indeed.
,I quite self evident.
hr: "" ' Clementine Angeline had come from a small Iowa town to the
dazzling city of Hollywood. Not to enter the movies to be sure, for Clementine
Angeline herself recognized that her figure was a trifle plump, but because she
longed with all her soul to serve these great ones. Clementine had always adored
the moving pictures in her old home town and, realizing that she could never be
personally connected with that romantic industry, she decided that her greatest joy
in life could come only from being as near as possible to those who were giving
their lives to the work. So, armed with these convictions she had come to the city
of pictures and had joined that vast throng which serve this royalty of the west.
To be quite truthful, Clementine "shoved pie" at a quick lunch counter just around
the corner from one of the largest studios in Hollywoodg but Clementine herself
would never have called it such-she dignified her labors with the term "serving
nourishment to the great." The fact that only those who had expectations of
greatness patronized her counter troubled her not at all. Clementine was as
superbly happy at the notice of a third-rate extra as she would have been had
Mary Pickford herself descended in person upon the stand. Many, indeed, were
the romances of fame and wealth which she wove around the unsuspecting movie
folk who frequented the place. ,
Clementine had been dealing out quick luncheons from behind her counter
for more than six months when the mischievous little god of love decided to take
a hand. Thus it happened that one morning Clementine looked up to gaze straight
into the eyes of her fate. To be sure, Reginald Fitzgerald did not look like any-
one's fate for Reginald was one of those pink and gold types of masculinity which
are so appealing to that class of women who by their size or disposition have never
been able to claim their own birth-right of curls and dimples. His eyes were large
and blue and fringed by unbelievably long lashes. They contained a wistful and
innocent expression which was very misleading when one considered Reginald's
true disposition, for Reginald, being neither wistful nor innocent, was petulant
and selfish to the extreme. It did not seem possible to connect such a character
with his outward appearances, but such was the case, as many a little extra girl
could testify to her sorrow and many a fellow actor knew to his disgust. His
skin was of that peaches and cream texture of which one hears so much and sees
so littleg while his golden curls were like the joy and despair of his life. At the
moment of his entrance, they. lay in a perfect marcel straight back from his fault-
less features and Reginald, most conscious of the fact, posed in such a way as to
display their beauty to the utmost. The picture was completed by a trim blue
suit which had been tailored to his form with great care. Clementine Angeline
caught her breath at the sight and automatically sugared the glass of water she
had just drawn from the tap. At the sarcastic remark of the painted little extra
she was serving, as to the sudden generosity of some people, she merely blushed
her apology and turned hastily back to the counter acutely aware that Reginald
had seated himself quite near. When she had placed his pie before him and he
thanked her with a pretty gesture and a deep look the heart of Clementine An-
geline was lost forever.

Another month went by and Reginald had formed the habit of dining regular-
ly at Clementines' counter. He accepted with charming grace the largest piece of
pie or the sugariest doughnut, smiling in return his most deceptive smile. She
absorbed his few compliments to her vicarious culinary arts much as a desert
camel absorbs water after a week's fast. She was in loveg most tragically and
irrevocably in love, and the fact that he was one of the "great" and should there-
fore be far removed from her sphere troubled her not at all. Clementine Angeline
continued to watch and worship from behind her pie counter and Reginald con-
tinued to come to her counter because she tickled his vanity and fed his ego.
One afternoon, not long after Reginald had entered simultaneously the door
of the cafe and the heart of Clementine, a conference of a very heated nature
was going on in the private offices of the near by studio. Sol Gibson, the greatest
comedy producer of the day, and his most trusted director were discussing the
casting of a new series of comedies.
"I tell you, Bob," insisted the great one, "I want a new lead, That Mary
Day isn't getting over with the public like she used to. VVe need a new girl to
put pep into this series." '
"I know it," returned his assistant," but where are you going to find the type?
This Mary Day is the only girl on the lot who hasn't lost her head about dieting.
She is perfectly content to be fat and a fat lead is the only thing for this bunch.
Anything else would kill them sure."
The little producer jumped up and paced restlessly back and forth.
"That,s all true enough, but her stuff is old, I tell you. VVe've got to have a
new fat lead. VVe've simply got to! Have you looked all the extras over?
"You bet," was the dry response, "not a chance. Fat girls are becoming ex-
tinct as a type. Why I haven't seen a girl for a week that weighed more than a
hundred ten." .
The discussion continued until at last the great Sol Gibson threw his cigar
very violently upon the floor and jumped on it.
"I tell you," he shouted, "I will Hnd a girl to do that part. You delay casting
a week and I'll comb the whole darned town for the type. I'm going to have the
right girl in that part or break all the commandments trying!"
And so it was arranged that the director should wait a week before casting
the parts to give Sol time to make his searchg and Sol, waiting not for a second
bidding, grabbed his hat and departed on his quest.
Meanwhile Reginald had discovered the real feeling back of Clementines'
attentions and was highly amused thereby. This was the richest thing that had
ever happened to him. He, Reginald Fitzgerald was used to the adoration of
women, but always they had been the prettiest and daintiest of maids. He was
used to the subtle 'advances of those fluffy little studio dolls, but the elephantine
coquetries of Clementine were a new and novel experience. It never entered his
selfish mind that Clementine might suffer from his treatment. She amused him
by her antics when he flattered her, therefore he continued to flatter. Poor Clem-
entine was raised to the heights by his manner and attentions. The possibility
that she was merely a means of amusement never occurred to her, and accepting
each cajolery at its face value, she was supremely happy.
On Sunday afternoon they were seated in the park when Reginald, always
eager to show his accomplishments, began to sing. He had a pleasing voice which
seemed especially suited to the tinkling ballads of the past and Clementine listened
in enraptured silence to this hero of hers. He was drifting from song to song
when he was suddenly visited by an inspiration. Why not try a real love song
inspired by that other Clementine upon her and see what she would do? No
sooner thought of than executed and Reginald, assuming a love lorn air, sang in a
wistful and languishing voice that love song of long ago:
"Oh my darling, oh my darling,
Oh my darling Clementine,
Though she's gone and lost forever
' She's my darling Clementine."
The enraptured Clementine listened to the end and then flinging her arms
about his neck murmured blushingly.
"Oh, Reginald, dear, I am so glad you love me too! I was dreadfully afraid
you would be too bashful to propose."
The aghast and half crushed Reginald made no response as he was using his
utmost strength in an effort to disengage himself from her clinging embrace.
Taking his silence for delight at her avowal, Clementine cuddled up close to him
and cooed her happiness. When the half strangled Reginald had recovered
enough to gain a coherent idea of what she was saying his horror was unbounded,
for the blissfully happy Clementine had evidently planned her way past the
wedding day and was busily furnishing the parlor. Even as he listened she ii-
nished that room and passed on to the kitchen. In vain did Reginald attempt to
get in a word of explanation, his every attempt was strangled by the loving on-
slaughts of the enraptured girl.
Reginald had no coherent idea of time, but at last he found himself guiding
the blissful Clementine back to her lodging. Frequent embraces had left him
breathless, but thru the daze of his mind he heard her murmuring.
"Oh Reginald, dearest, please sing me that song again. I shall always love it,
for I have a feeling that without'it you would never have had the courage to tell
Reginald devoutly agreed with her as to part of her speech-as to the rest-
his thoughts were too violent for utterance. How in the name of all that was
holy had he let himself in for this 3 But more important yet-how was he going
to extricate himself with safety? For Reginald had quite a broad streak of
yellow in his make-up and somewhat the thought of disillusioning Clementine
carried very little comfort to his heart. I-Ie would have to have time to think,
he must get away. In amazement he heard himself explain why he must dash
so soon. He even admired himself in an abstract sort of way when he noticed
that he had inferred that the appointment was with men of great importance.
Deuced clever of himself to be able to think like that under the strain. At last
he was able to tear himself loose from her breast-taking embraces and Hee, but
only after a promise to return that evening to sing once more the song of Clem-
In a daze he wandered about wondering how he was to escape the clutches
of this Amazon. His mind raced in circles and he found it impossible to think.
At last, when evening came, in an effort to gain composure he drifted into a near
by cafe and listlessly ordered a cold drink. So far had the adventures of the day
robbed him of his usual spirit that even the pretty waitress attracted no more
than a passing glance of attention. Sipping the drink he mused on what had
occurred and vainly cudgeled his brains for a solution. Suddenly his wandering
attention was fixed by a loud voice which issued from the next booth.
"I've found her, I tell you, I've found her!" came in excited tones. "I saw
her this morning. The very one. VVhy she looks as if the Lord had made her
for the part. She's fatter,, possibly than Mary Day, and"-
"But," broke in another voice, "are you sure she'll take it P"

"Of course I'm not," returned the other, "but that's your job. I barbained
to find herg now it's up to you to cast her."
"Sure," groaned the quiet one, "I always get the sweet end of the dealg but
never mind, I'm' used to it. What I want to know is where I'll find this fairy,
and what it's going to cost me?"
"That," said the other, "is the best part of it. She had no idea that I want
her and to my knowledge she has never even attempted to enter pictures. Of
course you'll be able to sign her up'cheap if you use your head. Now you know
that little pie counter around the corner from the studio? Well she works there.
In the morning you go down and sign her up. I don't care how much it costs-
get her, but I imagine that about a hundred a week will do the trick. Now it's
up to you, and if you fail me, I'll can you. This is our chance to give the dear
public some real stuff and incidentally make a roll for ourselves."
Reginald sat paralyzed. There wasn't a chance that he was mistaken. There
couldn't be two such counters persided over by girls built on the general lines of
superdreadnoughts. Still it was unbelievable that she was being sought for the
movies. As if to confirm his lingering doubts, the voice continued:
She has some sort of trick name out of a songg Angeline or Evangelina or
sopiething like that. Let me think-oh why can't I think of what that fool song
"Darling Clementine," suggested the quiet one.
"That's it-Clementine. Vtfell you hop over there early tomorrow and sign
this darling Clementine up. Go the limit-kidnap her if necessary. I tell you-"
iBut Reginald arose and staggered out-he had heard enough. Even in his
dazed condition he grasped the fact that some one wished to star Clementine. One
hundred a week the voice had said to offer-with more in reserve. W' hy that
was a fortune! And Reginald whose one god was money wondered what irony
of fate made the ridiculous Clementine desirable while his own perfect beauty
went unnoticed. Clementine would quit the pie counter now he supposed. She
would have money to burn, and-and-
It was there that the idea burst like a great light upon the poor addled head
of Reginald. The worry that had obsessed him vanished as he galvanized into
action. He dashed home and dressed with infinite careg then he hurried to the
house where Clementine lived. It was not yet the hour set by her for his arrival,
but he saw her looking out of her window. I-Ie started for the entrance when a
sudden thought stopped him: Of course-the very thing-she would like it too.-
So it came about that a few minutes later the cup of Clementine Angeline
Pemberton was filled to overliowing. An old timer might have noticed a bit of
improvision, but the happy Clementine cared not-for what she heard was a really
nice tenor voice lifted in a tune of long ago:
"Oh my darling, oh my darling, oh my darling Clementine
I shall love you, dear, forever,
Oh my darling Clementine."

The Associated Student Bstdy of Alham'mra High Schrrol has during the past
term, had one of the most successful years in its history.
Xlie have had to work under diliiiculties of various kinds. The most im-
portant was the reorganization of our finance system which has proved successful.
The new system is eitirely different from the one used in previous years, and was
established by the Commissioner of Finance. lt has balanced every activity in
the school on an equal basis in the finance department, thus joining more closely
the different activities of the school.
We are prwud of our financial success that has been achieved. We have
clearel up all of the old outstanding debts, besides successfully taking care of our
annual budget. This success has been due to the co-operation of the Student llody,
lfaculty, and the Commissioners, in all of our undertakings as picture shows, and
Our athletes have made good records in every line of sports. Having won
the central league pennants in the varsity and 110 lb. basketball and baseball. Our
football and track records have shown a great improvement. The tennis teams
have also shown a very high average, and at present are fighting for the Central
league Championship which is practically assured.
ln connection with athletics it might be said that Alhambra has been entered
in the Coast league, this means that A. H. S. has met the qualifications of larger
Debating has had a successful year and at present we are also fighting for
the Central League Pennant with our old rivals, South Pasadena.
We are indebted to our Student llody Store which has been a life saver in
times of needg the co-operation of the students has made the store our stepping
stone to success.
Considering these improvements. l believe that the Student Body has obtained
success, friendliness which has resulted through co-operation.

ALHAMBRA. HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT'S
The Students Co-operative Store of Alhambra High School, though, only
established this year, has already proved that the Student Body Machinery could
not run without this important cog.
A brief history will well explain the advantages and how the store has
worked up to its present standing.
The store was established October 6, 1924, by the first semester com-
missioners under the management of Herbert Johnson and help of Mr. Heyl. The
store started out without one cent to its credit, dealing only on consignment basis,
the stock consisted of school and athletic supplies, also confectionaries. In about
two months, it was decided that it was possible to start paying some of the largest
bills a little at a time. This plan was carried out until the present stock is en-
tirely owned by the Student Body with a capital of some 3600.
The store is a part of the student body, never-the-less it is kept under a
separate account of the regular student body treasury. During the course of the
store it has given the student body treasury S6003 so in reality the store has es-
tablished a capital of 31200, these figures only go up to the month of April.
The store is run entirely by student control, the power of the store is vested
in the commission who permit the manager and adviser to manage the store on
their own responsibility. The store is open from eight a. m. to four p. m. in
which during this time students act as clerks. Their co-operation has played a
great part in the success of the store.

The Girls' League is the second largest organization of the High School.
lts purpose is to promote good fellowship and help in all school activities.
From the time a girl enters High School until she is graduated she is a member
of the l.eague. The League holds up to girls, high standards, and helps to mold
them into better women.
We feel that we have really accomplished a great deal this year. For the
first time. we have had a real tiirls' League Office. This we have furnished from
our own funds. and we are very proud of it.
livery year the girls give a "XYelcome" to the N9 and new girls, so that they
will feel at home and as if they "belonged" to the League. At Christmas time
the girls always do some charity work. This year, it was handled in an entirely
new way. The Friday before Christmas vacation. the school as a whole had a
large tree in assembly. The students brought gifts and placed them under the
tree. After assembly everything was turned over to the League. Christmas week
officers came to school and arranged the gifts in baskets ready to be taken to
carefully chosen, worthy families of the community.
Our annual Girls' League party, the Hi-hlinx, was held Friday, March 27.
lt was one of the nicest ever held. Un March 31 the Basketball Team was en-
tertained at dinner
We sent two delegates. Helen llaldwin and Anna Abrahamson and our ad-
viser, Miss lilount, to the big liirls' League Convention at Pomona. Ruth
Vageler and lileanor lylaronde and a member of the faculty attended the Spring
Convention at Azusa.
:Xltogether we feel that this has been a very successful year, and we have
tried our best to make it so. XYe hope that next year the League will be of even
greater service and that the officers will enjoy the work as we have this year.

Due to the com metent work and never-tirin efforts of the debate coaches,
1 v I - . g .-.. .
Miss XX alker and Mr. Green. Alhambra held its own in the held ot debating tlns
year, as ever. Through an unfortunate circumstance, Alhambra lost an oppor-
tunity of a top place in the Southern California League, but made up. in a meas-
ure, for this by its Central League standing which was such that we met South
Pasadena in the Central League championship debate.
Although successful to no small extent this year we may look forward to
even greater things next year, due to the fact that an experienced squad will lre
prepared to give their time and energy' for this end.
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA LEAGUE
ALHAMBRA vs. INGLEXVOOD
In the first debate in the Southern California League, held on November 21.
Alhambra met Inglewood in our own auditorium. Interest was running high as
was shown by the attendance of such a large audience. Lawrence XYhite, who
acted as chairman, proved himself to be in keeping with the occasion.
Alhambra, represented by Marion Garrison and Frederick Dilg, had the
affirmative side of the question "Resolved that Japanese immigration should be
regulated by the same percentage quota as is European immigration."
The debate was interrupted by the sudden illness of Bernice jones, the second
Inglewood speaker, and no decision was renderd.
The next week, on November 26, at Bovard Auditorium the two teams met
to restage the contest which had been interrupted. Lynn Smity acted as alternate
for Bernice Jones. Marion and Frederick did not quite reach their former mark,
while Inglewood who, so to speak, was fighting with her "back to the wall" pro-
fited by the postponement and won a three to nothing decision.
ALHAMBRA VS. JEFFERSON
The second round in the Southern California League. held on Feb. 27. 1925.
found Alhambra meeting Jefferson in a simultaneous debate on the interesting
question "Resolved that a three-fourth jury decision should constitute a verdict
in all criminal cases."
In our auditorium Alhambra was represented by Gwendolyn MacMillan and
Robert Sharp, who argued affirmatively. Although this was their initial debate,
they showed the delivery and poise of veterans. However, because of their very
telling case, jefferson was awarded a unanimous decision.
john Egelhoff and .lack Guppy upheld the honors of Alhambra at jefferson
on the negative side of the same question. They took the Jefferson speakers by
storm and combining a perfect case with excellent delivery and cleverness of
refutation succeeded in entirely convincing the judges. Alhambra received a
three to nothing decision in her favor.
' f' wt". -I-
ALHAMBRA VS. VENICE
In the third round of the Southern California League, held on April 24, the
Alhambra debaters, Robert Sharp and Harvey Harkness, brought the speakers
from Venice down to defeat, obtaining a unanimous decision. .Alhambra had
been scheduled to meet San Diego, but, as Alhambra's reputation as a debating
school had spread, San Diego forfeited. Consequently Venice was our opponent.
The question which was debated was "Resolved: That the Federal Child
Labor Amendment should be Adopted." This question had been debated by the
Venice speakers five or six times. In spite of this fact, the champions of the Bay
League were unable to out-talk Robert and Harvey. Their end of the debate was
perfect from start to finish, a strong case, forceful delivery, and quick refutation.
The speakers were coached by Mr. Green.
CENTRAL LEAGUE DEBATING
SUUTH PASADENA-ALHAMRRA-MONROVIA DEBATE
The Central League debating was so arranged this year that every school in
the league met every other school. In the first debate, on january 16, Alhambra
met South Pasadena and Monrovia in a triangular debate.
Fred Kendall and Verle Russler, upholding the affirmative of the question
"Resloved: That capital punishment should be abolished throughout the United
States" staid at home and encountered South Pasadena. Although they put up
a splendid debate they did not quite convince the judges. South Pasadena received
a two to one decision.
Sam Solleder and Helen Kendall journeyed over to Monrovia and after te'ling
them a few things on the negative side of the question brought home a three to
nothing decision in their favor. ,
Two years ago it was decided to have a regular series of inter-class debates.
Last year it was impossible to hold these debates because we did not have an
auditorium, but this year we resumed this event. The seniors challenged the
juniors to a debate and the sophomores challenged the freshmen. The winners
of these two debates met each other to determine the championship.
. These debates, besides giving good training, are of great interest to th mem-
bers of the different classes. Much credit is due to the student-coaches who had
a share in producing such interesting contests.
, JUNIOR vs. SENIOR
The first inter-class debate was held january 19, 1925, between the juniors
and seniors. The junior speakers, Milton Morris and Robert Herrick, had the
affirmative side of the question "Resolved: That the Initiative and Referendum
should be extended to include national law-making." The senior speakers were
Wallace MacMillan and Howard Meyers.
From beginning to end this was an interesting debate. On both sides there
were excellent arguments and delivery. The juniors were especially ready in
refutation. The judges rendered a decision of two to one in favor of the junior
FRESHMEN vs. SOPHOMORE
On the following day. january 20, in a special assembly the Freshmenf
Sophomore conflict was witnessed. The speakers showed a thorough knowledge
of the question. which was "Resolved: That every citizen in the United States
should be compelled to vote.
Frederick Dilg ably assisted the sophomore representatives, Virginia Cudde-
back and Lucille Snodgrass, who put forth a good set of affirmative arguments.
The freshman team, composed of Catherine Charlson and Paul McKalip,
were coached by Mr. Green. They made a strong negative case, basing their
argument upon the grounds that compulsory voting of every citizen would mean
doing away with the literacy and other necessary restrictions. A five to nothing
decision was captured by them. V
INTER.-CLASS CHAMPIONSHIP DEBATE
FRESHMEN vs. JUNIORS
On March 19 the Junior-Freshman debate was held to determine the inter-
class championship. The Freshman class succeeded in obtaining the enviable
position of champions.
The question argued was "Resolved: That Labor and Capital should be
compelled to settle their disputes through legally constituted boards of arbitration."
The junior team, Robert Herrick and Milton Morris. upheld the affirmative while
the freshman team, Catherine Charlson and Paul McKalip upheld the negative.
All speakers showed exceptional ability and the freshman speakers showed a
superlative style of debating, thereby obtaining a vote of four to one from the

He is the greatest artist, then,
Vilhether of pencil or of pen,
NVho follow nature. Never men,
As artists or as artisan,
Pursuing his own fancies,
Can touch the human heart, or please,
Or satisfy our nobler needs.
XYay back in the dim past when A. H. S. was truly a little red school house,
there came into existance the Art department. Classes at that time were small
and limited as to equipment, and they played no decidedly vital part in the every
day history of the school, but they did accomplish one thing, they prepared the
way for the Art department of today.
For several years back, under the inspiration of Miss Bainbridge, the Art
department has grown steadily, but no year has been more marked in its growth
than this one just completed, 1924-25.
In February, 1925, the Art classes moved into the new Household Arts build-
ing. Previously, there had been but one Art room and later a classroom con-
verted under pressing circumstances into quarters for Mrs. Swan's classes in
stage craft. The new building presented four large sunny rooms and a comfort-
able office besides an entrancing stock room with shelves, drawers, and cupboards
enough to satisfy the most exacting artist.
Enlargement in classes called for another instructor, so Miss Kinder was
added to the department.
The classes now cover a fairly large held including: interior decorating, batik,
tied and dyed, block printing, pen, brush and charcoal work, sketching from still
life, design and poster work. There has also recently been introduced a new
course in costume designing.
All the illustrative advertising for school activities, as well as work on the
"Alha1nbran" is handled by the Art department, and the school has reason to
believe that the latter is handled well, for a successful Los Angeles engraver said,
"The line work of this Year's Alhambran is as good as I have ever seen anywhere,
it is equal to college work."
Next year, Miss Bainbridge hopes to take up the instruction of clay model-
ing, as well as that of Art appreciation. By that time the Art department will
be thoroughly at home in its new surroundings and A. H. S. has every reason to
believe that the Art department will be even more progressive in the future than
it has been in the past.
Mr. Powell who came to A. H. S. in May as a substitute during Miss Bain-
bridge's absense will undoubtedly continue to teach here next year. If so, courses
in leather, metal and clay work may be introduced.
On the eleventh day of March we were shocked to hear of the death of one
our best beloved teachers and friends.
For Miss Myrtle Cioodykoontz, for many years teacher and coach of dra-
matics at Alhambra, we shall always hold the highest regard, both for her un-
ceasing diligence and efforts as head of dramatics in our school and community,
and for her purely alutristic motives and personality.
Wie feel it is indeed to be regretted that it is only after we begin to look hack
on the life of one who has been taken, that we realize what a high example and a
life of usefulness and honor she has led.
lt is not to be regretted, however. that these past mortem thoughts in regard
to Miss tioodykoontz's life are not without foundation.
During her six years at Alhambra High, she organized and developed the
ClI'lllllZ1tlClS department into one of the most inlluential in the school. She was the
founder of the student-dramatic's organization, known as the Light and Shadow
Club. She was chiefly responsible for the organization and development of the
Alhambra Community Players. It was principally through her efforts that we
secured our Little Theatre. Our present comprehensive course in Shakespear's
work was founded by this noble woman. At the time of her passing she was
President of the Oral Arts Association of Southern California.
lYe mourn the passing of one of our best beloved teachers and coaches.

LIGHT AND SHADOW
The "Light and Shadow," with 3 new stage on which to present its produc-
tions an an efficient stage craft class to aid them in producing the plays, has had
a most successful year.
The drama club is an organization which is for the purpose of putting worth
while plays before the students of A. H. S. It was the first club of its kind to
be organized in the central league and since its organization many others have
been modeled after it. Nile would be proud that our school was, in a sense, a
pioneer in this particular branch and we would all be interested in making it the
best club of its kind.
The Light and Shadow club has given a number of plays this year. Only a
few years ago the experiment of student directed plays started. Now it has de-
veloped into one of the most popular organizations of Alhambra High School.
started and fostered by Miss Myrtle Goodykoontz. This year with our new
auditorium and new stage equipments the production of one act plays has ad-
vanced with amazingly rapidity. In connection with the Light and Shadow club
it is well to mention our new department. Under the direction of Mrs. Swan we
have three new classes, stage mechanics, stage craft, and stage crew. XVith the
aid of these classes we feel proud to say that we have produced some wonderful
lighting effects and stage settings. not to be excelled by any school in Southern
The first of the Drama Club plays produced was "Sham," directed by VVilma
Goe. This clever little play was also given for the Alumni Association. Rodman
Houser played the part of the thief, the part of Charles was played by Bevan
johnson, Clara his wife, by Beth Allen Curtis, and the reported by Kenneth Koch.
On November 25, was produced the 'fGame of Chess" a gripping drama re-
presenting the struggle between the Russian peasant and the Russian noble, Alexis
Alexandrovitch was cleverly portrayed by Phil Thompson. The part of the
peasant, Boris Ivanovitch was played by Bevan Johnson, and that of Constantine,
by Vance Davis.

"Bimbo the Pirate," a Booth Tarkington production, was given on February

For the first time in the history of Alhambra High School, a winter class
produced a senior play. The XYinter class of '25 presented "Intimate Strangers,"
by llooth Tarkington on November 7. one of the most successful plays of the year.
This play was entirely different from any previously presented in that it depends
upon cleyer dialogue, repartee, and amusing situations for its interest. rather than
upon action. The winter class. although small, should be complimented upon
their ability to handle such a large undertaking. This was the lirst class play to
he presented in our beautiful new auditorium.
Ted Conner distinguished himself in the role of Ames. a good looking middle
aged bachelor, who when stranded in an out of way railway station, fell in lore
with a lovely lady, Miss Stuart, played by Helen Campbell. Never was there a
more sweet. lovable and quaint leading lady in Alhambra High. We can hardly
blames Ames for falling in lore with her. Then the Happer, Florence. entered
the scene. cleverly portrayed by Lucille Russel, who tried to ramp our good look-
ing bachelor. l.ike all men. he was partially lured away by the irresistible "forces"
of a V725 Happer. Fred Carruthers played very well the part of 'lohnnie XYhite.
the modern youth in loye with Florence.

POLLY WITH A PAST
The Senior class of '25 presented "Polly with a Past," a three act comedy by
George Middleton and Guy Bolton on May 7th and Sth.
The title role of Polly who later turns into the wicked Paulette Bady, was
very cleverly portrayed by Marian Davis, who with her poise and French accent
was quite an added attraction. Rex Van Zile who falls in love with wicked Paul-
ette was taken by Loyal Hawthorne. You may be sure he made an ideal leading
man. Myrtle Davis, played by Gladys Tobin, who devoted her life to rescuing
souls from the gutter, is also in love with our hero Rex. A very clever plot issues
from these circumstances, resulting with a victory for Polly. Comodore Barker,
the ladies' favorite, is played by Bill Ward. The part of Prentice Van Zile, a man
of the world, is successfully played by Rodman Houser. The part of Mrs. Van
Zile, Rex's mother, played by Ella Rollins, and Mrs. Clemtine Davis, Myrtle's
mother, by Eleanor Maronde were both very well done.
The parts of Parker, Harry Richardson, Clay Collum, Petrowski, and Stiles
were carried extremely well by each character.
It was through the tireless efforts of Miss Seaver, the director, and the splen-
did cast, that made this play such a great success.

A SUCCESSFUL CALAMITY
The junior class of 'Zo presented a two act comedy, "A Successful Calamity"
on February 12, and 13.
The role of Henry XYilton, a millionaire who longs to spend a quiet evening
at home. was taken very cleverly hy Thomas Graham. Owing to illness. Lillian
Hollister was unalmle to take the part of limniie, the young second wife of Henry
XYilton. Miss Seaver, our new and eilicient director, took the part on a day's
notice. livery one realized what a difficult piece of work this was to do. The
junior class takes this opportunity to thank Miss Seaver for her co-operation.
The part of Marguerite XYilton was successfully played hy Elizabeth Girard.
liddie XYilton was cleverly portrayed by XYesley Montgomery.
The character work of Alhertine, the delightful French maid, Connors the
lwutler, Pietro Rafaelo, the Italian artist, were carried extremely well.
Too much credit cannot he given to Miss Seaver, who with her careful direct-
ing, and with the co-operation of the cast made this play such a decided success.

Progressiveness is a very useful asset to any school activity, and because of
this, work in music this year has risen high above previous years. The music
department has increased considerably in many different ways due to a number
The choir is a new organization, numbering 76, consisting of the girls' and
boys' glee clubs. The purpose is to improve the assembly singing by their leader-
ship and they have succeeded admirably. The girls' and boys' glee clubs, directed
by Mrs. Augusta Clements and Mrs. Ella Beebee respectively, have also clone
separate work, both having sung in assembly several times. The choir is under
the capable direction of Miss Georgia Shropshire and is certain to progress in
the future even more than it has this year.
The band this year has a director of its own and has made splendid progress
under the leadership of Mr. Irving G. Ulmer. The band played in assembly on
Alumni Day, on Lincoln's birthday, at the basketball games with South Pasadena
and Chino, at the Mission Play, and at the debate with Venice high school. The
band also played at the Alhambra Theatre in order to raise money to buy uniforms.
The sum obtained then will be increased from time to time until enough is secured
to uniform the band. Careful training has led to playing of a superior quality.
and the band is one of which Alhambra High may well be proud.
In addition to the orchestra, glee club. and band training there are classes in
Music Appreciation. History of Music, piano, violin, wind instruments, and chorus
work. These are all useful to the student who intends to specialize in music.
Last year the Alhambra high school orchestra which had a membership of
sixty pieces became so large that it had to be divided into two separate orchestras,
the senior and junior. The title, senior orchestra, does not mean that it is com-
posed entirely of seniors, but only that they are for the most part the ones who
have been in high school the longest. Most of the members of the junior orchestra
are freshmen or new pupils.
As director of the senior orchestra Miss Shropshire has succeeded in obtain-
ing exceptionally line results. That this orchestra is a very good one is shown by
the fact that they were asked to play over the radio but only because of lack of
room at the station were denied this privilege. They have, however, played for
a number of entertainments, including the two senior plays, the debate with Ingle-
wood high school, the English Department play, Commencement in February, and
the Xlednesday Afternoon Club play, "Three XVise Fools."
The junior orchestra under the able direction of Mrs. Clements is very im-
portant because it serves as a foundation for the senior orchestra. The students
who are interested in ensemble playing may first receive their training in this
orchestra so that later on they will be prepared for more advanced work in the
other orchestra. The junior orchestra played for the Junior play and the debate
with jefferson high school.

s Q l it 5 A
The primary purpose of the XX'ednesday Treats which are
given every two weeks under the capable direction of
Miss Shropshire, head of the Music Department is to
give the pupils a chance to recognize and appreciate
good artists and goivd music. The treats are usually of
a musical nature and give, not only the students of the
high school, but also the public of Alhambra, the oppor-
turity of hearing some of the best known artists at a
roniinal price. The treats are varied: sometimes there
is a lecture in place of the regular musical program, and
and some treats consists of two or three artists instead
ORIGIN OF WEDNESDAY TREATS
In 1914 Miss Shropshire conceived the idea of having some of the high school
students perform before the student body. This was carried out and the pupils
gave continued performances throughout the year, such as the "Peer Gynt Suite."
ln 1915 people of Alhambra furnished material for the treats. The next year
Miss Shropshire obtained from the studios in Los Angeles people who were almost
ready to start on their careers as professionals and who wanted experience in ap-
pearing before audiences. Professional musicians having heard of this, offered
their services and since then have been presented by th Music Department in de-
lightful programs. Those given this year were as follows:
1. Elsie Manion, violinist, and Marjorie Dodge, soprano.
2. Z. Earl Meeker. baritone, and Marjorie Ratliff, accompanist.
3. Dr. Frederick Monsen, lecturer.
4. Drpheus four, quartette.
5. Esther Rhodes, harpist.
0. Trio--jules Lepske, violinistg Earl Bright, cellist. and Alfreil Kastner.
7. Frieda Sterling, soprano, Richard Sterling, reader, and Gertrude Squyer,
8. Bronson de Cou, lecturer, and Dream Pictures.
9. J. Smith Damson, The Potter-Craftsman.
10. Mrs. Beulah XVright Comstock, dramatic reader.
ll. Elsa Van Norman, contralto. and David Crocor, violinis-t.

The Algia Club is composed of the girls of A. H. S. who have won their
letters. It is an honorary athletic association to encourage all girls to take an
active part in athletics, and aid the student body in every possible way.
To win a letter a girl must be proficient in basketball, baseball, volley ball,
tennis, track, and gymnasium work, for the letter can only be gotten by earning
ten points playing in inter-class games.
This year for the First time the club had pins. These pins consisted of a bat
with Algia written on it, a ball, and a winged foot. The chain has a small A at-
tached to it.
ln February fourteen girls received their letters and were initiated into the
club at a party given at Mrs. Crosswhite's home.
The officers this year were: President, Anita Rasmussen, Secretary, Anna
Mae Stacey Treasurer, Sarah Ann Eckertg Faculty Adviser, Mrs. Crosswhite.

The S. P. Q. R. is organized to follow the plan of the original Roman state.

scriba, or secretary is Frederick Dilgg the quaestor, or treasurer, is Charles Renck.
Still another group of oflicers are the aediles fthe program and social com-
mittee.j Among the Romans the aediles were the commissioners of the police
and of public property, and also had charge of all public entertainments.
Thais Belt, Ruth Callecod and Verna Covey are upper-class aedilesg since
the upper classes form the higher social orders: the "optimates" and the "knights"
The freshmen comprise the plebians, or common class, they are represented by
Mary Dalrymple, Sylvia Sharp, and Ralph Neerman, who serve as plebian aediles.
At each of the meetings of the S. P. R. some interesting point of Roman
life is generally discussed. Sometimes these subjects are illustrated on the stage
by members of the Latin Club in costume. After discussion of the subject of
the meeting the singing of Latin songs generally follows.
The Latin Club this year, aided by the efforts of the Latin teachers, Miss Mc-
Dill and Mrs. Farmer, has been a great success. It is one of the coming organ-
izations of the school.

THE SCHOLARSHIP SOCIETY
This organization has made decided progress toward its two objectives, that
of encouraging and stimulating boys and girls to greater effort in their school
work and that of making known to the student body and faculty the names of
students who have faithfully and capably carried on all of the program they took
A very pronounced desire to be known as a member of this club has been
shown quite generally and all who have achieved this distinction are proud of it.
The idea has taken firmer root that more definite recognition should be given to
the class of students who represent the best effort of the school and who give
A. H. S. its standing in Colleges and Universities.
A bronze pin is worn until life membership has been won. This is possible
by meeting the requirements of the society for two-thirds of the time in high
school. The gold emblem of the California State Federation is then conferred.
Those in the winter class of 1925 to receive this honor were Kenneth Kingman,
Donald Olson and lVallace McMillan.

the Music, Art and Oral Expression departments entertained the rest of the high

The A. H. S. French Club was organized three years ago for the purpose of
enabling students of French to gain a more practical knowledge of that language.
Owing to the illness of Miss Smith, who has done so much to make this club a
success, the meetings were not held regularly this year.
The French Club met the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month in the
"Little Theatre" during C. R. period. Only French was spoken.
Committees for entertainment were chosen, and at each meeting some interest-
ing stunt was put on.
At one of the first meetings of this year a Constitution was adopted by the
French Club. At Christmas carols were learned, among which were "Quittez.

At the end of the year the French Club had its annual party. A special pro-
gram was presented in which a French play was put on, French reading and
costume dances were given. fyvlndividual members sang French songs, then the

THE HI "Y"
The Hi "YU is an organization of high school boys and extends throughout
the entire world. This organization has for its purposeg the creation, maintenance
and extension throughout the schools and community of high standards of Chris-
"Clean living, clean speech, clean athletics, clean scholarship, and contagious
Christian character," is the the slogan of the Hi "Y" Club.
The work of the Club has been greatly hindered this year by the fact that
we have been unable to use gym for recreational activities. However, they meet
every other Monday night in the high school cafeteria. After the supper they
have a short business session and then the discussion period which is in charge
of our leader, Mr. O'Neall. This period is then followed by whatever recreational
activities it is possible to have. It is their aim to have an outside speaker at every
meeting to give a talk of interest and importance to high schonl boys.
The Hi "Y" Club believes in service and the members have tried to do every-
thing they could to uphold the traditions and high standards at A. H. S. A num-
ber of our group attended the Older Boy's Conference which was held in Pasa-
dena where they received a greater knowledge of the responsibility of the young
men of today.
The Hi "Y" would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Routt and dif-
ferent members of the faculty for their help and co-operation to make this club
a success. They also want to thank Mr. Stevenson and Mr. O'Neall, leaders, who
spent a great deal of their time with the club. NVhenever there were difhcult
problems to solve they were always sympathetic listeners and the members of the
Hi HY" wish to express their appreciation for their help.

THE BIG "A" CLUB
The Big A Club is an organization of the fellows of A. H. S. who have won
their letters in major athletics. The coaches and alumni, who have won letters,
are also members, but of the honorary class who can participate in meetings and
have all the privileges of active members except the right to vote. The member-
ship has increased very well this year, but it is hoped it will become even larger
next year. Meetings are held at intervals during the school year. At these meet-
ings the business of the club is discussed and plans are made for a good time, now
The purpose of the club is to promote good sportsmanship and to increase
the interest of the students in every branch of school athletics. This purpose has
been carried out and the members of Alhambra High teams are always looked up
to as clean players and good sports. The fellows get together and can see the
advantage of being good sports instead of each fellow doing as he thinks he wants
to do at times when he is in hard luck.
Our adviser this year was Mr. Ranker, the track and baseball coach. Under
him a new constitution was drawn up, and the club was started again with a better

LITTLE "A" CLUB
Four years ago when the present Senior class entered the school as freshmen
the Big "A" club was a big factor in the life of the school. The student body was
small and all the attention was given to varsity athletics. The lightweight fellows
merely went their way and only a few received letters.
The Big "A" club was reorganized this year and a group of lightweight ath-
letics met and discussed' plans for starting the Little "A" Club. A constitution
was drawn up and adopted and officers elected for the ensuing term.
Fellows are eligible for membership in the club who have won their light-
weigh U30 lb.j letters and who have not won a varsity letter.
The organization of this club has promoted a higher interest in lightweight
athletics and adds to the honor of winning a lightweight letter. Next year when
Alhambra becomes active in the new Coast League the Little "A" club should be
of great service to varsity teams and to A. H. S.
XVhile nothing startling has been accomplished this year by the wearers of
the Little "A" the important thing is that the club was started.

Life is made up of a series of human affairs. each one of which has a par-
ticular aim or object towards which to strive. The individual or organized group
of individuals, as the case may be, who assume the responsibility for the evolution
of this aim or object, whether it be consciously done or unconsciously done. prim-
arily strives for success. The individual or group of individuals, before becom-
ing a real success, must be successful in every human affair which faces them.
In the case of the school, which is merely an organized group of individuals,
the human affairs are the fields of education, athletics. finance and journalism.
The Student Rody has been successful in the educational Held. the Student llody
has been a success in the athletic field and has also been a success tinancially. llut
what about the journalistic field which is chiefly represented by the "Spotlight,"
our student body paper.
XYhen the year 1924-1925 opened, the staff was publishing a paper consisting
of approximately seventy-five hundred worclsg before two months had passed an
inset was made additional to the original size and before the close of school the
staff was publishing a paper consisting of approximately fifteen thousand words,
just double the size of the original copy. Is this not success. and if the student
body is successful in every other field, is the "Spotlight" not a key to a successful
student body? '
Every individual or organized group, whether it be a state as our America
or whether it be a flock of geese flying from the cold north to the warm south,
has its leader to whom its success is attributed. The "Spotlight" attributes its suc-
cess to Mr. D. P. McAlpine, Faculty Adviser of the "Spotlight', staff of the
Associated Student Body.

The Alhambra Varsity Football team, working under Coach "Claudy" Down-
ing, upheld the traditions of fighting spirit and sportsmanship always found in
Alhambrals teams. Although they did not make a record in the league, the boys
fought a stiff, heady, and enduring game of football and were always going better
the last quarter than any of the first three. This last was due to their steady
training, their fighting spirit and the wonderful support shown by the student
Coach Downing worked very hard in working the team up to the standard
that it held. During the first of the season he was materially aided by Mr. Daugh-
erty, a C. I. F. official. The hard work of both coach and men resulted in a team
whose stamina could not be worn out by the hardest of playing.
Howard Bell, the captain for this year, played tackle during the whole sea-
son. His hard work and cool head did much for the moral of the team. Phil
Mills is chosen captain for next year and has already impressed the school with
his ability. Jimmy Harris was manager of the team and always worked like a
Trojan to give the team the very best available of everything.
The team always fought for all it was worth and towards the end of every
game was playing better football than its opponents. The entire team was always
still in action when the opposing team had been weakened by casualties. 1
After an exciting round of practice games, the Moors entered the league
season. The Monrovia game was a walk-away for Alhambra, though the. boys
were nervous in the first league game and the weakness in the scoring ability of
the team was first noticed. This game had to be forfeited to Monrovia, because
of an ineligible man played by Alhambra.
The Covina encounter was a stiff game, resulting in a tie. In this game the
Moors first began to play real football.
The Glendale game was the hardest of the season. Alhambra could not get
started until the last quarter, but by that time so many Glendale men had been
carried off the Held that the team was beaten back and a short pass resulted in a
touchdown for Alhambra.
The South Pasadena game was the battle of the season. The teams surged
up and down the field in terrible conflict. South Pasadena scored in the early
part of the game and Alhambra in the last. The football Field was jammed with
spectators anxious to see Alhambra break the traditional jinx. The game was
stopped only by the going down of the sun.
The Citrus game was close, though not so exciting as the earlier games. The
opposing team won by one point, resulting from a place kick.
The members of the squad are as follows: Howard Bell, captain, 3 starg
Stanley Atwood, 2 starg Donald Olson, Z starg Dick Rhoades. 2 star, Lewis XVi1-
son, 2 star, Ervin Enz, Robert Crampton, Otis Duncan, Felix joujon Roche,
John Manuel, Glen Martin, Philip Mills, Glen Sturgeon, Edward Tandy, Kenneth
Taylor, Merrill Tucker, Harold VVeetman, Howard VVing, Alden Stein, Bolson,
William Spencer Thompson, and Richard Cordrey.
The first 18 of these men received letters.

This season the Moors put out a classy little team that made a good, hard,
clean fight for the pennant. Coach lio. XYilson continued his good work of last
season and proved that he is a real football coach. To put out a championship
football team in the short time of two years, is a real achievement, and Coach
XYilson came within an ace of doing it.
The record of this years team is unique in that, out of nine games played.
the midget Moors ran up a total of 71 points against 18 for their opponents.
The most important game of the year, from Alhambra's point of view, was,
of course, the South Pasadena game. The Moors stepped on the baby Tigers for
a 13-0 victory, which would have made the season a success if it had been the
only victory of the season.
As a climax to this very successful season, Coach XYilson had the honor of
being invited to play Los Angeles High School's 130 lb. team in a preliminary
game to the big U. S. C.-Idaho fracas. The game was played in the huge
Coliseum, before thousands of people, and the A. H. S. boys did themselves proud.
The game was hard fought from beginning to end, and not until the last five
minutes of the final period was L. A. able to slip over two touchdowns.
Captain Fred Hughes was the outstanding player on the team, and A. H. S.
can well be proud of him, as well as of every other member of the eleven. The
prospects for 1926 are better than ever before, and only some unforseen mishap
will prevent Coach XYilson from bringing home the pennant next year.
The scores of all the games played by the lightweights were as follows:
A. H. S.-19 ............. Lincoln-
A. H. S.-13 ............ Jefferson-0
A. H. SRO . . XYhittier Staten-0
A. H. S.-0 . . . . Monrovia-0

' HEAVYWEIGHT BASKETBALL
For the fourth consecutive year the varsity Basketball team won the Central
League championship and entered the play-off for the Southern California title.
Prospects looked none too bright at the beginning of the season. The squad
was light, and experienced men were few. The loss of John Roodhouse at Christ-
mas was a severe blow to the teams hopes and a keen disappointment to the Coach.
Nevertheless Coach and squad set to work following the holi'days with a do or die
attitude that could not fail to bring results. The team ended the season as runner-
up for the Southern California Championship. Coach Downing received the first
invitation ever given to a California team, to compete in the National Prep Basket-
ball Tournament at Chicago. Even though we were unable to accept the invita-
tion, just the fact that it was given, shows that the fame of "Claudy Claude"
and his basketball teams has spread far and wide.
No squad ever worked harder for A. H. S. than the squad of 1924-1925. A
full quota of fifteen players ended the season with the team, in spite of the fact
that only seven men received letters. Such school spirit always means a winner.
Twenty games were played during the season, resulting in fourteen victories,
one tie, and five defeats. The total score for the season stood: Alhambra 492,
opponents 334, or an average per game of 25-17.
Prospects for next year are as bright as usual. There is every reason to
believe that Alhambra High can maintain it's present superiority in Basketball
for many years to come.
The squad was composed of the following :-Bowers, Joujon-Roche, Mills,
VVard. Martin, Rhoades, Boyden, Flinker, Fulton, Clements, Kloek, Tandy, Spen-
cer, Teague, Souder.

Under Coach Bo VVilson's able guidance. the 130 lb. team this year captured
the league championship. However, due to a technicality in the C. I. F. ruling.
Doty, star forward, who played in an Alhambra Athletic Club game, was declared
ineligible, and the Moors were forced to forfeit the championship to Glendale.
Graham Clapp, the captain, was a good, consistent player and a fine Hoor-
man. and it was largely through his work, along with that of Rice and Doty, that
Moors were so successful in their games.
Men who won their letters were Bice, Clapp Qcj, Heber, Mills, Teague, Doty,
Wellington, Manuel, Hawthorne, and Taylor.

A. H. S. has another championship basketball team this year. Qur own Dick

At the end of the league season the lightweights were tied with Glendale for
the league championship, and the playoff was scheduled to take place in the South
The little Moors looked beaten in the first half, but they came back with a

In the first playoff game they were defeated by Norwalk's 110 lb. team at

The A. H. S. track team placed fourth in the 1925 Central'League meet.
The enthusiasm shown by the student body was very gratifying, and shows
promise of a championship track team within the next few years. Our hopes
along this line failed to materialize this year because of unforseen hardships due
to illness and ineligibility. Coach Ranker, ably'assisted by Manager Kindrick,
deserves the undivided respect of the entire A. H. S. Student Body, for his un-
tiring efforts during the current year and the brilliant foundation prepared for
The only track men lost to further service for A. H. S. are Stuart Rowley,
this year's captaing Felix Joujon-Rocheg and Pete Nouguier. Wallace Glidden
was chosen captain of the 1926 track team.
The results of the League Meet ware as follows: Glendale 54 5765 Monrovia
34Mg Covina 23 5765 Alhambra 11 2735 Citrus 6Mg South Pasadena 1 273.
Three league records were broken and one tied in this meet. As Glendale had
one of the best teams in Southern California it was generally conceded that they
would win, but the Moors were expectcd to give them a hard battle for first place.
However, due to a number of last minute injuries, and the unexpected ineligibility
of several of the men who were expected to win points for Alhambra, we did
very well to place forth. VV ith practically the same team back next year, Alham-
bra will stand an excellent chance of winning the banner.

and placing third in the discus, and the pole-vault. Graham Clapp was second in
the low hurdles and the broad jump.

The 1925 Alhambra baseball team has proved itself to be capable of playing
a high grade brand of ball. Every indication points to not only a Cetnral League
championship, but a Southern California banner as well. This team is composed
of players who, for the most part, have had co siderable experience. Captain
"Shorty" House, George Koester, and Rod HoEser,.were all members of the
infield last year. This is Houser's third year on the team. Rex Hudson and
Teague, outhelders, also played last year. Flinker has been our best pitcher for
two years, and Blonde backs him up in fine style. Phil Mills, of basketball fame,
and Johnny Clayton, are both Fine hurlers.
COVINA VS. ALHA MBRA
April 17th marked the opening of the Central League season. Alhambra
met the most formidable team in the league, Covina High. Although the game
had been doped to be a pitchers battle, there was plenty of hitting on both sides.
The spectators had enough thrills packed into this one game to last them a life-
time. The wonderful fighting spirit of the Moors, combined with fast thinking,
enabled Alhambra to win a game that seemed hoplessly lost. The score was 8 to 7.
The support of the students was excellent for an away from home game. A large
number of the faculty were present.
Alhambra-Flinker and Blonde.
Covina-VVine and Southers.
GLENDALE VS. ALHAMBRA
The second round sent Glendale High to Alhambra, on April 24th. The
Dynamiters, always have strong teams, and the Moors were prepared for a hard
battle. johnny Clayton took the mound for Alhambra, but was unfortunate in
having two runs scored in the first inning, through costly errors on the part of
his team mates. Flinker took his place and pitched well. If it had not been for
four errors. the score would not have been so close. The Moors gathered eleven
saftiesg the diminutive Koester getting four hits out of five trips to the plate. The
final count was 7 to 6, with Alhambra in the lead.
Alhambra-Clayton, Flinker and Blonde.
Glendale-Smith and Muff.
Games with Monrovia, South Pasadena and Citrus Union Still are to be
played. just a word about next year's nine. Houser, Koester, Nouguier, and
Clayton are the only players who will not return for the 1925 season. Our
chances next year are brighter than ever.

won their A's. Two of these players will graduate this year.
Practice games with Pasadena, Midwick, lil Monte, and Marlborough have

- TENNIS Q .
Tennis at A. H. S. has progressed during the school year of 1925 as never
before. Unlike other branches of sport, it is not confined to the Central League,
and the actual season of competition is much broader than that of any other rec-
ognized sport. In tournaments not under the jurisdiction of the Central League,
but whose entry is open to all players in Southern and Central California whose
eligibility conforms with the restrictions of the C. I. F., the Alhambra High
School was represented by its veteran players, Rod Houser and Bob Behlow.
The members of the tennis team are chosen by a system known as the per-
petual challenge board. By this method a player may challenge the man rated
directly ahead of him to a match. If the challenger is successful he is entitled
to be rated one position higher than he previously held. In this way the entire
squad of ten members is kept constantly in practice through inter squad com-
petition. The team, or the first four players, are able to keep their positions oily
through their successful resistance of challenging squad members.
Although the tennis team will lose three of its four members at the close of
this season, Frank Blonde, Charles Blonde, Lewis Behlow, and Bill Rowley are
expected to ably fill the vacancies.

The English faculty vodvil was given on the fifth. It was all as clever as it
could be, but I think it was worth several times the admission price to hear Mrs.
Richardson slaughter the King's English.
The "Successful Calamity" was presented by the Junior class on the thir-
teenth, title, and having thirteen characters in the cast, it went over big.
Tomorrow the Light and Shadow Club is going to present "Her Tongue"-
they say it's rather good.
Thank fortune, tomorrow is the last day before vacation, and I'll have an
opportunity to recuperate from the affects of over-study-now don't laugh.

Dear Ruth: june 23, 1925
Vacation is here at last, in spite of my fears to the contrary. There hasn't
been a great deal of activity this last month, except on the parts of seniors who
were making valiant efforts to become alumni.
Class night was a distinct success, and of course commencement always is.
The girls looked really charming, all in white. The baccalaureate sermon was
preached the Fourteenth.
