S. shows a steady progress forward toward the ideals of scholarship, athletic achievement and citizenship. Progress means change, and change means the discarding of old habits and customs and the substituting therefor of newer and better habits and customs. This year has seen us throw aside practices which we have outgrown and has seen us take our place with the larger schools of Southern California. The growth of Alhambra High School has been remarkable both as to numbers and the quality of endeavor and school citizenship displayed. Too often quality is sacrifiiced when' quantity enters and I am proud to say that "The Spirit and Worth of A. H. S." burns no less brightly because of in- creased size. Our teams have maintained our repu- tation for keen and clean competition and I am con- fident that our opponents have respected and ap- preciated our ability and good sportsmanship. GEORGE E.

A great deal of energy is necessarily directed to shaping its tendencies, and to setting in train the forces, which should go far toward realizing the higher ideals sought in its future development. These larger plans, this building for the future, must be considered in estimating the importance of any period in the history of our school. Keep- ing in mind this broader basis of judgment, it is believed that the past year has been singularly significant. Some dreams are as yet unrealized, but the story is, we feel, a record of achievement. Students, Faculty and Board of Education have exemplified the habit of co-operation. Self government has made progress, scholarship has risen, and team-work is an actuality. Of somewhat different order, but in its way indicative ofsubstantial prog- ress, is the inauguration of the summer school. In opening the doors of the high school for a period of six weeks, during the vacation season, Mr. Routt, superintendent, and members of the Board of Education recognize the obliga- tion laid upon them to distribute the benefits of secondary school education as widely as means will permit. VVe look forward, confidently, to greater achievements, visioning closer co-operation and more efficient functioning of the respective elements which constitute the administrative forces and the members of the student body of Alhambra High School.

S., our graduation is such a recent experience that we s.ill feel closely related to the activities of the school and interested in it's life. The winter class of 'Zo was the largest mid-year group to he graduated from A. H. S. Vlfe were well represented in all lines of school activity- athletics, Girls' League and other student hody affairs. The class play, "Hawthorne of the L'. S. directed lay l'aul Ritter, was the first costume play to he presented as a class production at A. H. S. It was a success from lmoth a hox office and financial standpoint. lYorking in conjunction with the present .-X12 class and the Sophomores, we defeated the juniors and Freshmen in a spirited paper drive. Those who participated actively in this affair will no douht remember it for some time. The winter class presented somewhat of an innovation in the Class llay program. This was written by Mrs. Clements and personally directed hy her. It is customary for graduates to express sweet sorrow when old class days, now gone forever, are recalled. XVith us, however, so recently grad- uated, this feeling is not yet apparent. Sometimes, perhaps. hut not now. And for another reason we claim distinction-not one of our memlmers trip- ping over an examination lxarrier while coming down the home stretch. failed to make the goal. jean B.

Again we shnwetl our snperiurity when we flefeaterl, nut unly the St-ninrs, hnt the whole school, in the schotil lttwil-x'' I track meet. Our first dramatic production, the "Successful Calamity" proved that we possessed versatility as well as enthusiasm. Even the Seniors were forced to admit that the junior-Senior Prom, given by us in honor of our graduating "friends" was the most enjoyable dance ever held in the gym. Perhaps our biggest contribution to the school during the year was the part played by our members on all of the athletic teams. Our members were also evident in large numbers on the debating squad. Our junior year was an overwhelming success, both from the standpoint of the class and from the standpoint of the school as a whole. At last the destined day came and we came to school with our heads still higher in the air for we had now reached the top and were Seniors. Our records throughout the year are so numerous that space does not permit the enumerating of all of them. Needless to say we were just in the 10012 Student Body drive, followed closely by the B9 freshman. Freshman, we congratulate you on your school spirit, keep it up! The members of the Senior Class, repeating their success of previous years, were largely responsible for our success in athletics. Four of the debaters are members of the Class of '26. The Spotlight was managed and made a success largely by the efforts of our members. The Honor Roll bears many a Senior name. The scholarship record made by the class is one which everyone can be duly proud. XVe need but mention our Senior Play, the "Romantic Age" and everyone recalls what a huge success it was. The good times that the class has had have been very numerous. We have not only Worked. but We have had, we believe, more than our share of fun. The "Hick Dance" put on by the Class was a good expression of our originality and pep. As the year comes to a close, every one of us comes to the realization that it is certainly true that "School Days are the happiest days of one's life." Our school days have indeed been happy, but at the same time highly profitable ones. At all our social gatherings, and there have been many, the traditional "Senior Spirit" has been evident. In closing, the Class of '26 sincerely thanks our class adviser, Mr. VVood, for everything he has done for us. He has indeed been a friend to all. We also wish to express our appreciation to the entire faculty for their help and cooperation. So as we say good-bye to A. H. S. we wish to the present class and to the many succeeding ones. the best of luck. May your years at A. H. S. be as enjoyable and as profitable as those spent by the Class of '26. Carry on the "Spirit of A. H. S.," let it live, as it lives in the hearts of every mem- ber of the Summer Class of nineteen hundred and twengy-six. ' Bob Sharp.

Last Will and Testament VVe the Senior Class of 1926 Alhambra High School, of Alharnbra, State of California of the age of four years, and being of sound and disposing mind and ineniory and not acting under duress, rncnace, fraud, or undue influence of any person whatever, do make, publish and declare this our last WILL AND TESTA- JIENT in the rnanner following, that is to say: First: NVE GIVE AND BEQUEATH to the faculty, the creatures that ordered us about and made us repeat lessons, all the valuable manuscripts that we chanced to leave behind. They are at liberty to give out the startling information contaired therein, but we caution them to be careful in passing on such knowl- edge, since the other classes are of younger and more tender fabric. Consequently they are wholly unable to grasp such learned facts readily. Also we urge the faculty to give those lower classmen who cause the slightest disturbance, slips of a pink or yellow discoloration. Secondly: WE GIVE AND BEQUEATH to the Juniors an amazing array of schemes, tricks, and devices to elude the tiresome classrooms and the noisy study-hall. They are also welcome to all offices and positions which we discarded for those of college and life. However, those who failed to attend school on the memorable Senior Ditch Day will receive nothing but the condemnation of good men. Thirdly: WE GIVE AND BEQUEATH TO THE SOPHOMORES, who are still a trifle unripe and immature, the privilege of initiating the freshmen into our institution of learning. They are also entitled to the numerous gum wads, pencil stubs, and the bits of paper which we purposely left for them. The Sopho- mores will do well to emulate and keep their eyes on the example set by the class of '26, Fourthly: WE GIVE AND BEQUEATH to the Freshman the unique celluar ramifications of our cerebral hemispheres, which have enabled us to comi- comprehend the complex singularities of pragmatic thescphy, together with our unparalled iconoclastic conceptions of theoretic autonomy. VVith these virtues and a 1002, student body membership, which we made four years ago, the pres- ent peagreeners will have an excellent start. To the Athletic department we bequeath our utmost desire for a new athletic Field and an array of splinterless bleachers. South Pasadena is inherently given her defeat in basketball. To the debating department we give the worthy example set by Bob Sharp, President of our Class. To Miss Ruth Seaver and the dramatics department we leave inscribed in the Log the memories of a "Successful Calamity," our Junior Play and the "Romantic Age" our Senior Production. ' Vile give and bequeath to Major G. C. Elsey, U. S. Army, retired, for no reason at all, our slang, our faults and our eccentricities. Lastly, We hereby norninate and appoint Mr. Wood, Senior Class Adviser, as the executor of this our last Will and Testarnent and hereby revoke all former Wills by us made. IN IVITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and seal this 29th day of April, -in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and twenty-six. Bob Sharp. twenty-nine BOYUEN, ROLAND Vic-e-Pres.

The class has endeavored and throughout its course in :Xlll211IllJ1'ZI High School has upheld the traditions and promoted those high principles for which A. H. S. has been noted. I feel assured in saying that the class has carried out very successfully its highest intentions. The 1l1E'lllllCI'S of this class have and are participating in all forms of school activity: which include athletics, scholarship. and student activities at large. During this semester we have selected our rings, our sweaters and our class colors, which are orange and Harding hlue. Much of the credit of the Senior lils is due to the cooperation and help of our class advisors, Miss Irwin, while Alunior A's, and Mrs. Clements, while Senior l4's.

VVe were not only successful in con- tinuing our own brilliant records and the records of the preceding junior classes, but in establishing new records for the future junior class to live up to. Qur records were not in athletics alone, but also in scholarship. Half of the varsity football letters went to juniorsg two of the basketball letters also went to juniorsg practically all of the track men were juniors. To prove our superiority we won the inter-class track meet by a large majority. Seven out of the eleven players on this year's championship baseball team are juniors. lin the First round of the i11ter-class debates our team defeated the seniors. This gives us the privilege of meeting the sophomores for the school championship. Three members of the school debate squad are juniors. The junior play, "Wl1o is the Man," was both a Hnancial and dramatic success, and the junior-senior dance also promises to go "over big."

That alone is a record to be proud of. but we didn't stop at that. We went out to see what laurels we could win in athletics and other school activities. llue to the ex- cellent coaching of "Hoy XYilson we were able to turn out the best freshman baseball team .Xlhambra lli ever had. Our debating record is well worth remembering, as two of the members of the freshman class won the inter- class championship of the school, having defeated the juniors in the final des bate. Our freshman year soon slipped away and it was not long until we were again entering .Xlhambra lli, this time under the title of sophomores. Our number was somewhat decreased, but this did not in the least dampen the spirit of the class. Opening the year with a bang we joined the seniors in the paper drive and came out victorious over the frosh and juniors. Filled with the desire to do things we worked hard for the l'. T. A. and sold more tickets to the Dads' Night Program than any other class, and also for the San Carlos Grand C llM'l'1l. In Athletics we stood out as one of the foremost classes in the school. XYe were represented in football, baseball, basketball, track and gym club, having several of our members on the first team in every sport. XYe ran the juniors a very close second in the interclass track meet and came out vic- torious over all the other classes in football. This year as in our freshman year we held a fine record in debate, one of our members being on the school team, besides taking first place in the Orator- ical Contest on the Constitution of the Cnited States. ,Xlthough our social functions were rather few those that we did have were very well attended. During our second semester a skating party was held at XValhalla. which was one of the most lively affairs of the year in the estimation of all who attended. .N sophomore dance was also held. ln conclusion, the sophomore class wishes to take this opportunity to thank Miss Kemper. our class advisor, who has so ably guided us through our little disturbances and troubles and without whose help many of the things which we undertook could not have been accomplished.

Every member of the class has been working' in unity, to make the best class A. H. S. has ever had. ln athletics we have achieved distinction. ln the inter-class track meet the sophs placed second. It was quite remarkable, considering the number of varsity men the juniors and seniors had. Next we tied for first in the inter-class football. May 17. the sophomores play the seniors for the inter- class championship. The sophs also proved themselves superior in scholastic standings. De- feating the freshmen in an inter-class debate, the sophs will meet the juniors in the future for the championship of the school. The sophs gave a skating party which was very successful. In the near future there will be a sophomore dance, which will be a success, we are sure. In conclusion, the sophomore class wishes to express appreciation to our class advisor. Mr. Miller, for the way he has worked with the class. It was mainly through his efforts to help the class that we achieved such distinction.

S. has spent one of the most successful years of her "career." lt seems that every year the Commission ancl the Student liocly as a whole feel that that year was just a little bit better and that they accomplisherl just a little bit more than in the preceeding one. XYhat better sign of growth ancl progress could we have? lt might seem that we were not as successful in our athletic encleavors during the closing year as we have been in preceeding ones. True, we were not as successful if you consicler only the number of games and pennants won. .Xt the beffinninff of the vear .X. ll. S. iouncl herself no lonffer in the fb - 6 ' small ancl eompiiratively weak Central League, but in the strongest high school athletics league in Southern California. This accounts for the fact that our teams clicl not meet with the success that they hacl been accustomed to. llowever, in spite of the stiffer competition our Yarsity ancl 110-lb. bas- ketball teams won a majority of their games anal the lightweights tiecl for the championship, but because of technicality it was awarclecl to Long lieach. llecause of the fact that we harl new coaches and that it takes a year or two to builcl up a team in these sports, our tootball and track teams clul not lare so well. Our tennis squacl, as per usual. has met with continuecl success. Hur baseball men have been playing like pro'l'essionals and have an excellent chance for the league championship ancl high hopes for the Southern Califor- nia title. .Xll things consiflererl. we have hatl a most successful year in ath- leties. lt has taken usa year to get used to the "last" company ancl we not only expect, but know we will clo even better next year. .Xll other Stutlent llocly .Xctivities have experiencecl similar success. Our tinancial department has been put on a firm ancl business-like basis. llecause ol- the fact ancl the success of the Stuclent-store we will encl the year with a substantial surplus. 'l'he Spotlight has been a success. having the largest circulation ol' any year. The Stuclent-Llwuncil. establishetl several years ago, was put into operation and provecl a big help to both Commission ancl the eouncilmen. .Xll of these achievements have been marle possible through the coopera- tion of the Stuclent-liocly, the Faculty. anal the t'ommission. llecause of this cooperation we have progressecl cluring the year 1025-lb.

D ll The Spotlight As everyone knows an organized group of people should have some sort of a paper or journal to keep record of their doings and to announce coming events. The .Xlhamhra lligh School Student Body has as it's paper, the "Spot- lightf' lt is a weekly paper and exceedingly interesting in it's accounts of past and coming events. The lirst of the year the editor was Richard Short. This last semester there has been several changes in the staff as well as the new editor, Gwen- dolyn Macalillen. Gwendolyn has proven that she is very capahle as a news- paper editor and much of the success of the Spotlight is clue to her. The faculty advisor to xvhoni much success is due is Mr. Donad P. Mc- Alpine. .rerun ty-eight 1 E 4 1 1 Art For several years the art department has grown steadily in size, but no year has been more marked in its growth than the one just completed. Miss Vaughan, Mr. P'owell, and Mrs. Swan have established an organized the art work into a general course of study. The classes now cover a large Held. There are three types for those who take freshman art: A course for the home economics students, and those desiring just general Art. After this design, there are courses in costume design, homemaking, and household craft. In the crafts, many both useful and beautiful things have been made from metal, leather, and clay. The commercial class has handled all the illustrative advertising for school activities, besides the general work in pen and ink illustration. The stage craft department, quite newly organized, has accomplished a great deal this year. In the study of stage costuming, French dolls were made. Crafts for the stage were taken up, including wool embroidery, batik, and tye-dye. The art of make-up has been studied, and, as the big problem of the year, model sets in little theatres have been constructed. - Near the end of the year an exhibit was given, which proved to be a very unusual and charming affair. It was held as a social tea on the stage, with an exhibition of the entire year's work. An appreciation is due to Mr. Powell, the art advisor, who has so help- fully co-operated in the Art department's work in the annual. eighty a , .- , L y The Alhambra High School Students Co-operative Store The store was established October 6, 1924, under the management of Mr. Hyle as faculty advisor. The store started without one cent to its credit, and before many months it was making money. Before the year was over, the store had payed some of the largest bills, and had a capital of 51200. This year Charles Hollister was appointed manager of the store. but duc to illness, he was forced to resign. Westley Montgomery, the present man- ager has done very well. The first of this year the old Student Body office was taken over by the store, enlarging it to twice the size of last year. eighty-one Clerks of the Store FIRST SEMESTER Faculty Advisor .....

The Girls' League Executive Board for this year consists of: President. Lillian llollister: Yice-President, Christine Peters: Secretary, Marie llalet: 'l'reasurer, Ruth lllair. livery year the League gives a "VVelcome" party to the B9 and new girls, so that they may become acquainted and feel at home. It is a custom of the League to do charity work. This year at Christmas. the school as a whole placed gifts before an altar in assembly on the Friday preceeding vacation. After assembly, they were turned over to the Girls' League. Many extra necessary things were purchased from the League treasury. During Christmas vacation, the officers and Miss Blount came and arranged the provisions and gifts in large boxes. They were then de- livered to over twenty needy families, thus bringing joy and happiness to them. The League office was more completely furnished by the addition of a chair, pictures, book-shelves and curtains, which the League bought. Cur- tains were also hung in the Social Room. Under the supervision of the Executive Board, porn-poms were made for the Student Body. A candy sale was given just before the Christmas holi- days. The money was used for our Christmas Charity work. The general business of the League is cared for at the monthly meetings of all the girls. The delegates who attended the Federation meeting of the Girls' Leagues at Polytechnic High School, Los Angeles, in November, were Lillian Hollis- ter and Dorothy Harmon with our Vice-Principal Miss Blount. Marie Halet and Ruth Blair attended the Spring convention at Santa Monica. This has been one of the most successful years in the League's history. The Executive Board hopes that the next year's Board will enjoy its work and that it will faithfully and successfully carry out the work of the League. Marie Halet, Secretary. eiglzty-three The Advisory Board of the Girls' League The Advisory Board consists of the elected class representatives and the chairmen of the standing committee. This years board has been composed of: Florence l'ost, Louise Blayney, Margaret Munson, Dorothy Harmon, Grace Stephens, Rosamond Routt, Mary Patten, and Betty lleim. The chair- men of the standing committee are: Social Chairman, Corinne Richardson: Xllelfare Chairman, Helen tloe: Athletic Chairman, Bernice Enslow. The Board meets every other week with the Executive Board and plans are made so that each representative can attend to the work in her class or committee. Each class committee is responsible for one program a year at the monthly meetings of the girls. These have consisted of musical and dancing numbers, pantomimes, or plays. The Advisory Board with one Executive member constitutes the Uniform Board, with the A12 representative acting as chairman. Monitors in the various class rooms, under its supervision, report uniform cases to the Board. These monitors help in collecting dues as well as attending to C. R. work. The Social Committee has charge of the big Girls' League Party and cares for official ushers for the opening of each semester. The Social Committee with the Executive Board, introduced the "Hostess" custom this year for new girls. The help given made the Hrst day at school a pleasant one. The Athletic Committee helps to develop school spirit by wrapping goal posts for games and in other ways as well. lt has always been a custom of the League to entertain the boys of one of the teams. This year the Ath- letic Committee with the Executive Board and Miss Blount entertained the members of the Baseball team with a delightful dinner. Une of the biggest events of the year is the Girls' League Party. The Social Committee and Executive Board feel that the party this year with its splendid program. good refreshments, and dance was the most successful one ever given. Everyone had a good time. The members of the Advisory Board feels that this year has been a happy and successful one and extend their good wishes to those who will have Charge of the work next year. Florence Post, A12 Representative. riglzly-four 5 fy -4. .et Debating 'Although .-Xlhambra's debate teams have not been as uniformly success- ful in winning victories this year, as in some years, they have, nevertheless, maintained a standard of work which the school may take pride. The Moor speakers have lost several contests this year, but not once have all three of the judges believed the opposing tea1n to be superior in argu- ments and delivery. In every debate in which Alhambra has been a contestant at least one judge has awarded A. H. S. the decision as being the better. In the Southern California Debate League the Moors were unable to achiev any great distinction this year. llowever, in the new Coast Debate League, pitted against some of the Southland's strongest schools, Alhambra has been able to reach the Finals, and has very high hopes of winning the championship. This year it has been the privilege of Alhambra to be represented by some of the best speakers she has ever claimed. Foremost among these are Robert Sharp and Frederick Dilg, both gifted orators who combine polished ease on the rostrum with ability to search out and present strongly their convincing arguments. Both have shown in many debates their ready wit and keenness in exposing weaknesses in the argu- ments of their opponents. Others who have done unusually good work in interscholastic debates are: Harvey Harkness, Gwendolyn Macaiillen, Milton Morris, john Miller, and Richard Dwiggins. V .-Xlhambra's reputation for excellently coached teams has been maintained this year by the unstinted efforts of Miss Veda R. lfYalker and Mr. NVilliam Green, the Moor debate coaches, who deserve unlimited credit for the accom- plishment oi the debaters they have trained. They have been very success- ful in developing to the fullest extent the abilities of .'Xll131TllJI'Zt'S speakers. Coast Debate League LONG BEACH vs. ALHAMBRA .Xlhainbrals first venture into the newly-formed Coast Debate League was a forensic contest with Long Beach High. Upholding the affirmative side of the question: "Resolved, that Col. Mitchell's plan for a unified air service should be adoptedf' Gwendolyn Macllillen, Richard Keller, and Robert Sharp journeyed to the .Iackrabbit stronghold. The contest was very close, with much clever speaking displayed on both sides. In spite of Alhambra's greatest eiiiorts, Long Beach won by the close score of two judges' decisions to one. As well as marking Alhambra's debut in the Coast League, this was the first debate participated in by the Moors in which three speakers represented each side. This contest was held December 8, 1925. PASADENA vs. ALH :XM BRA Pasadena High sent two speakers over to the Alhambra High auditorium to compete in the second round of the Coast League schedule, on March 12, 1926. The question discussed was: 'fResolved that the people of the United States are behind the Eighteenth Amendment." Alhambra upheld the neg- ative, being represented by two -of her Hnest speakers, Robert Sharp and eighty-s.?'zfvn Frederick Dilg. Pasadena was also represented by an unusually able team, john Ackley and Robert McClintock. This debate has been considered by many debate fans, the finest ever staged in Alhambra's auditorium. The judges unanimously decided in favor of Alhambra. This victory reflected unusual credit on both Alhambra speakers. Coast League Championship LONG BEACH vs. ALHAMBRA Due to the necessity of going to press it is impossible to chronicle the result of this debate, the most interesting and important contest of the debate season. On May ZS, Alhambra is to meet Long Beach at Alhambra in the decid- ing contest for the 1925-6 Coast League Debate Championship. The question to discussed is: "Resolved that Young America's freedom of thought and conduct is detrimental to society." Alhambra has the affirmative side and Long Beach the negative. The Alhambra speakers are to be Robert Sharp and Frederick Dilg. They have been working hard in anticipation of the struggle and are being ably coached by Miss Veda R. Walker, head debate coach of A. H. S. The Moors have great expectations of winning this contest and with it the first championship of the Coast League Southern California Debate League COMPTON vs. ALHAMBRA In the first round of the Southern California League schedule, Compton met Alhambra. This contest was held November 21, 1925 at Alhambra. Helen Kendall and Frederick Dilg, both experienced forensic veterans, up- held the negative side of the question: "Resolved, that the Swing-johnson Bill should be adopted," for the Moors. Although the Alhambra speakers seemed to have the advantage in poise and adaptability, the judges were convinced that the arguments of the Comp- ton representatives were the stronger, and awarded them the decision, two to one. INGLEVVOOD vs. ALHAMBRA At Inglewood, February 19, Alhambra participated in the second round of debates in the Southern California League. The question was : "Resolved that the United States should adopt a responsible cabinet system of govern- ment." The speakers for Alhambra were Harvey Harkness and Milton Mor- ris. In presenting the negative arguments they made a profound impression upon the audience. It seemed to supporters of both sides that the Moors had won a clean-cut victory. Two of the three judges, however, cast their ballots in favor of the affirmative, Inglewood. MANUAL ARTS vs. ALHAMBRA The final Southern California League debate in which Alhambra par- ticipated was held at Manual Arts High in Los Angeles on April 9, 1926. The question discussed was: "Resolved, that Democracy is a failure." Al- hambra upheld the negative, represented by john E. Miller and Richard Dwiggins. Although john Miller was possibly the outstanding speaker of the evening, Manual Arts succeeded in securing two of the judges decisions to one for Alhambra. eighty-eight The Algia Club The .-Xlgia Club is composed of girls who have won letters in the girls' athletics. To win a letter a girl must be proficient in basketball, baseball, volly- ball, tennis, and gymnasium work. The letters are won after the required numbers of points to win the letter is made. This year the girls had sweaters and pins. The girls received their letters in a regular assembly in the same order as the boys letters are given out. A party was given by the Club to it's members at Hildur Richardsoifs home in San Gabriel. The officers this year were: Faculty Advisor . Miss llrownson President Bernice linslow Secretary Charlotte lYiest Treasurer . Yerna .laclvson cigllfy--nzm' X . K, -X x xx rx ,X CX-j GCI-Ii!! HY!! The Hi HY" is made up of High School boys and is an organization that extends all over the country. It is a wonderful organization and sets high standards for the young man of today. The slogan of the Hi "YU is "Clean living, clean speech, clean athletics, clean scholarship, and contageous Christian Character." Every other Monday night the boys have a supper in the High School Cafeteria after which they have a speaker and entertainment. This year they gave a very interesting assembly for the student body. A member of the group attended the Older Boys Conference this year and received many ideas. It is hoped that every year the club will grow larger. ninety i i l The Stage Crew l We have an exceedingly good stage crew at Alhambra High School, and they should receive much praise for the splendid work they have done under Mrs. Swanis teaching. . This year when the San Carlos Opera Company came to the High School, our stage crew did all of the stage work for the opera. One of the Union Leaders came out to watch the work behind scenes, and he afterward com- plimented Mrs. Swan on having about the finest high school crew in Southern California. Besides the boys, Mrs. Swan has two class of girls that she is teaching a little of the art of stage work. The crew consists of: Clarice Menefee Stanley Wilson Morey Daw Haynes Keenan Harold Harmann Gordon Coombs Kenneth Weisel Floyd Lewis Gerald Bayler Joe Sodolski ninety-one O 1 A ' if 'jvf' I.

These words express the spirit of the Scholarship Society in our high school. Concentrated effort is the essence of the require- ments for membership. Alhambra Chapter Twenty-one was well represented at the State Gon- vention at Santa Barbara in December, and throughout the year has been up to the minute in it's activity. Our past success only creates higher ambition to accomplish greater things in the future. Fredrick Dilg, Secretary. The officers for last semester were: Safford Nye . . . . .

It's pre- siding oificers, two in number are therefore called consuls. Frederick Dilg and Thais Belt were elected to these positions. The Roman aediles were the commissions of community property and community activities. The pro- gram committee bears the name of aediles. Ruth Walter, Betty Clayton, David Anderson, Winifred Craven, Rada Dougan and Gladys Gentry. Charles Cooyell ..... Treasurer Richard Keller ..... Secretary The purpose of the meetings which are held in C. R. period once a month is to study Roman life and customs and to sing Latin songs. Throughout the year the S. P. I. R. has held very interesting meetings. On one occasion the club enjoyed a Roman banquet sewed in Roman style. The immense success of the Latin Club for the past year years is due to a great extent to the continual efforts of the Latin teachers, Miss McDill and Mrs. Farmer. Richard Keller, Secretary. ninety-five GYM CLUB 4 Y 'W' -z , WRESTLING TEAM Gym Club This is the second year that A. H. S. has had a gym club. When this fact is considered, the Moors may be said to have had a most successful sea- son because they were only defeated by two of the strongest teams in Sou- thern California. One of these, Manual Arts High School gym team, is gen- erally considered to have the best squad in this section of the state. Coach Wilson deserves a great deal of credit for so ably coaching the Alhambra team. In the short time it has been in existence "Bo" has de- veloped some brilliant gymnasts. In all of the meets Harvey Harkness, high point man of the team, could be relied upon for one or more first places. Near the end of the school year the gym club had its second annual circus, which was bigger and better than before. The show was well attended and was consequently a financial success. ninety-seven .Ji- tk ,,-n .-ff' 111'm'ty--'iglzl 11N 1117 l N f ,, W' my 1 xN..f' f 7 ,AN " !

The "big son's" mother laughed gayly at the little face across the breakfast table. "And the pretty teacher with the pink cheeks and laughing eyes," Ivan happily finished. His own eyes were dancing. He and his mother had come from their own Russia to wonderful America when Ivan's lovable, dark-eyed father had died. Ivan's mother was English. She had lived long in Russia with her father, an English diplomat, then in her own home. Now Ivan was going to a public school in America. It had been a selected private school in Russia, but here in America things were different. The mother smiled again at the small boy whom she had just called her big son. "It's time to go, Ivan. Get your cap." -She was still smiling when she waved goodbye to the slender little figure as it trudged down the walk, but in her heart was anxiety. She knew how ruthless children are apt to be. How would they greet the eager sen- sitive boy with his dark hair and eyes that so readily proclaimed him not American? It would not matter that his father was of the nobility of Russia. With children all are equal. There is no discrimination. They make their own classes. The teacher, whom Ivan and his mother had met before, smiled at him as the class filed into the room. Ivan, his heart aglow, face and eyes beam- ing, took his assigned seat. He was happy, happy, so marvelously happy. Oh, if he only could have his violin now-it would sing, sing, sing with joy. "Boys and girls," began Teacher. "VVe are going to have a new friend with us. Ivan Dalovitch, who has come from 'way across the ocean, is com- ing here to school." She did not need to point Ivan out-all eyes had been turned on him long ago. 'At the back of the room sat Red Kellog and his staunch and true "gang" "Humph! Dago-Russ-" whisperingly sneered Red. "Dago--Russ!" loyally echoed the gang. Then later when the teacher called on Ivan to recite. "Ivan," mimiced Red. And then with sudden brilliance. "Ivan Offel- itch-Ivan Offelitch l" Recess came. Ivan trooped out with his classmates. He was rather disconcerted, though, when he was left standing alone as the children formed their special groups. The boys had all gathered in a corner, and were laughing gleefully at Red's newest plan. Ivan hesitantly started to- ward them. Then as if his movement was a signal for which they had been waiting, the boys whirled and ran toward him. Ivan went expectantly to meet them, but his happy soul chilled with terror as the horrible din broke around him. They boys had formed a taunting, dancing ring, and as beasts of prey were yelling-"Ivan Qffelitch-Ivan Offelitch-Dago Big Red Rus- sian!" Some of the little girls had poined the melee, but one, with Hashing blue eyes and tossing curls, pushed through the crowd and faced the ring leader. Her breath was coming in gasps, and her face was nearly as white as Ivan's. ninety-nine "Red Kellog! Let him alone-do you hear? Let him alone and don't you ever speak to me again." The children paused. Here was a new phase to the situation. 'fBut Jeanne-" protested Red. "Go lwayl Go 'wayl Don't ever let me see you. And if you ever tease Ivan again, I'll-I'll tell the principal." Agast at the awful threat the group dissolved. After that Ivan was never bothered by the entire crowd, but no group took him to its heart. Whenever he passed them he could hear them say- "Sissy boy-sissy, tied to a girls, apron strings, sissy boy-can't talk for himself-jeanne's little Dago baby." All the sunshine and song were gone for Ivan. Though not long after the novelty wore off and he was not teased so much, the fact remained that he was an outsider. These gloomy days were often brightened by the little secrets he shared with Teacher, who realized a little of his lonliness, and by Jeanne, who was always his defender and friend. As she was a leader among the girls as. Red was among the boys, her words carried weight and no one dared criticize her for her newly made friendship. "Mother Dear" knew only of Ivanls bright days. He kept the hurts to himself. It would never do to trouble her. Only the music of his violin told a story of its own. Although he tried to play gay, happy tunes-a minor bit would creep in, and if he did not know his mother was listening, the melody would become so sad and lone that it wrung her heart. Then came the day of Ivan's fight. Red insolently and insultingly spoke of lvan's mother. With dark eyes snapping the boy Hew into Red with such rightous anger, that the tawny head was soon bowed to the dust, its owner completely vanquished. The victor, however, did not escape without trophies of battle, and the black eye hed to be explained to mother. That night the violin was triumphant. A battle had been fought and won. Neither his mother's honor or his own was impaired and- Jeanne had seen it all. Soon the grammar school days sped by, and Ivan entered High School. Had he only known it, boys and girls of that age are not so heartless. They would have taken him gladly into their work and play. But remembering his former experience, he kept to himself. The boy made fine grades in all studies, and, when the call came for the boys to turn out for athletics, Ivan turned out. As he was of slender build, swift and light on his feet, he became invaluable on the lightweight football team. The school went wild over him. The boys wanted to make friends, and the girls were charmed by the handsome winning boy. But Ivan, for the most part, drew only closer to himself. At last, after months and months of anxious training and longing he made the "Big Team" in his Senior year. The night before the one grand game of the season, the Coach called Ivan to him, and, putting his arm across the ladis shoulder, said, "Boy-we're counting on you tomorrow." That was all, but Ivan's heart sang with joy, and that night the violin again sang a song of triumph, joy-and of gladness unfulfilled. The next afternoon the bleachers were Hlled with excited students. The Green and Tan of Ivan's school paced out into the field. The arrogant Orange and Black of the opposing team equally matched them. The situation was becoming tense even before the game had started. A rousing cheer arose from the bleachers. And during that cheer it was Red who saw a bit of paper pass from Ivan's hand to the Captain of the Grange and Black. He one hundred stared in astonishment-VVhat could it mean? He punched the boy next to him. "Say! Did you see that P" "What?" Red explained. "O,hl' Easily. "It wasn't anything. Ivan's white." But all the same a queer persisting doubt remained in his mind. The whistle blew and the teams lined up--the ball went sailing into the air. The game was on. It was so tense that on the bleachers silence reigned. The play stayed very nearly in the center of the field. Then slowly but surely the Green and Tan was' forced to yield. A whisper ran through the bleachers. The students had noticed something queer. They could not analize it until an agonized voice explained-"They've got onto our signals!" It was then that an ominous, threatening something rippled through the Green and Tan section. "Ivan-bit white. paper-might mean anything- but-looks queer-traitor-" The boys on the field fighting gallantly, and by a supreme effort held the score to "Zero" during the first half. But when they reappeared they seemed to sense the subtle, intangible feeling in the air, and they were forced back-back-back until a triumphant shout was raised in the Orange and Black section, and a groan from their despairing rivals. Touchdown! The teams lined up before the goal posts. Then it was the turn of the Orange and Black to groan for they had failed to convert. The score stood 6-0. Again the battle began in the middle of the field, and again the Green and Tan boys were forced back. It seemed as if all was lost as the game neared the end. Then a Green and Tan figure separated from the rest. A swift lithe form fairly fiew down the field. The Orange and Black fiew to stop him. They nearly succeeded as he stumbled--In that moment the very air seemed to stop breathing. The pace was regained and as the goal was reached a cry arose from both sides alike. The students went wild-caps were thrown in the air-girls hugged each other-boys madly pounded each other-and the frenzy broke out anew as the Green and Tan converted just as the last gun was fired. They won by one point. Then suddenly all was still again. They realized who had made that touchdown. It was Ivan. The crowd filed off of the field strangely silent. The big game was won, but the winning was in the mind of hardly a student. Something had happened that took away nearly all thought of the score. Jeanne avoided Ivan that night, and he did not walk home with her as usual. He could not understand it. The next morning all this had disappeared. The students their own gay selves as they tumultuously took their places in assembly. Ft was their gala day. They were exuberant and could not contain their feelings. They had won their big game. The Orange and Black had met defeat. At the end of the assembly the heroes of the day marched up to receive their "letters," Here the students had an .outlet for their feelings. Yell after yell arose, boy after boy was cheered, until it seemed the roof could not stand the pressure. Everyone was leaning forward in his seat-excited-joyous. Then the prin- cipal said, smiling, "We have saved the best to the last-Ivan Dalovitch-" Ivan entered the stage with the room still ringing to the last yell. Then all became so still that even the echoes seemed awed and hushed. Not a sound broke the awful stillness. Ivan grew white and stood as if frozen to ice. Someone tittered in the audience, and from a golden haired girl their came one hundred one a sob. The yell leader broke the spell by-"Now let's give-" But at the first word Ivan fled from the stage. That night a faculty meeting was held to get at the truth of the matter. Red was brought in and hesitantly told what he had seen. Immediately the bubble was broken. The bit of paper was only an agreement between the coaches as to some formality. They had given it to Ivan to show to the captain of the opposing team. But a boy's heart was very nearly broken that night. It was too much even for the precious violin to express. And a boy that night with his head buried deep in the pillow, sobbed long dry sobs. A mother prayed to her God. The next day Ivan did not come to school. and during his absence a spe- cial assembly was called. A stern principal explained the harshness of rush- ing headlong into conclusions. And the following day a very serious and contrite student body greeted Ivan as their hero. He knew he would never be lonely again. As he turned down the leafy avenue to go home that evening-a little hand was slipped into his and he turned to see two blue eyes winking bravely to keep back the tears-"Ivan-I'm so sorryh-and so glad." That night out into the soft night air the violin wafted a song full of joy and life and love. Through it all ran a deep strong current that had never been there before. That night a dear little mother thanked her Heavenly Father that her boy had come through safely. - The song rose out through the window-through the night, even hushing the carol of the birds-and who knows but perhaps it reached the heart of a girl-a girl whose eyes were still wet with tears-tears of happiness. The song of a boy's heart.

Shropshire, head of the department, as well as Music Supervisor for the Alhambra schools. As in previous years, the programs of the W'ednesday Treats have been enjoyed by the student body, as well as by the townspeople. These programs, varied and exceedingly en- tertaining and instructive, have been presented throughout the year as follows: Oct. 7-Hazel Sanders-Soprano. Dallas Reeves Boyd-Flutist. Edna Lillian Taylor-Pianist. Oct. 21-Sol Cohen-Violinist and Composer. Dec. 2-Pickford-Fairbanks Studio Quartette. -lan. 20-U. S. C. Mens' Glee Club. Mar. 3-Apolo Male Quartette. Mar. 17-Jerome Shafer-Impersonator and entertainer. Realizing the value of music in the curriculum. Miss Shropshire has spared no effort to secure for Alhambra the best. With the assistance of Mrs. Clements, Mrs. Beebe, Mrs. Curtis, and Mr. Ulmer, classes in harmony, chorus, sight singing, music appreciation, violin, piano, wind instruments, and history of music have been conducted. From the harmonv class taught by Miss Shropshire comes the creative work. In the classes of chorus, sight singing, violin, piano and instruction in the wind instruments productive work is stressed. As the third class of musicians is much in need of develop- ment, the classes in music appreciation and history of music help to make the students better listners and mor eappreciative of good music. From all these classes much talent has been developed under the influence of the instructors. The Music Department, in trying to help the students express their musical abilities, provides the various musical organizations. Also believing that music can be an influence for good in a community, Miss Shropshire has made it possible for these students to give programs in the various clubs of the city. The combined girls' and boys' glee clubs rendered Handel's l'Messiah" for the Christmas program for the student body. One very outstanding feature of this department this year is the produc- tion of "Il Trovatore" by the San Carlos Opera Company. Miss Shropshire, in conjunction with the P'. T. A., was able to secure this splendid treat at special rates, thus mading it possible for the student body to hear and see a real grand opera in its own auditorium. one hundred viglzx' ,.Qff1...u,:-:W BAND f Y 4 RC H ESTRA O SENIOR JL' N1oR ORCH ESTRA A. H. S. COACHES The Coast League Due to the fact that Alhambra and Glendale had outgrown the Central League they were admitted to the Coast League, with Fullerton High drop- ping out to join a smaller league, the Orange llelt League. In the seasons of 1924-1925 Alhambra won five out of seven champion- ships in the old league with Glendale copping Varsity football and track. In the new league are: Alhambra, Glendale, Long' Beach, VVhittier, Santa Ana, Pasadena, San Diego, and South Pasadena. The latter did not enter the league because she had outgrown the Central League. but merely be- cause they could not get any spirit out of their activities if Alhambra was not in the same league to be the traditional rivals. The competition in this Coast League is very great, stronger than A. H. S. has ever met with before, but the Moors fought hard and clean and gave all their opponents much to worry about before the games. At the time this article went to press no teams of Alhambra High has won a championship as yet, although the prospects for the baseball team looks very good as they have defeated the strong San Diego nine in the Hrst league encounter, the game being played at San Diego. The golf team looks good, but hardly is expected to take first place. The tennis team has second place cinched with a strong bid for first with San Diego. Coach Stoddards track team looks good for a First, second or third place in the league. In all it seems that Alhambra has not won as many championships in the Coast League, but neither coaches. faculty or students would consent to go back into the Central League, now the San Gabriel Valley League. one hundred thirteen Heavyweight Football , The Alhambra varsity football team was under the direction of Coach Church, who came back to Alhambra after several years absence. Although the Moors were not very successful, they entered each game to make a hard try for a victory and always played with a splendid spirit, willing to let the best man win. but only after a hard fight. The new arrival of Coach Church made it very hard for him to get on to Alhambra's customs in the first year. Coach Church worked hard on the team: and fair, clean fight was shown throughout the entire grid season. Coach Church has some wonderful ma- terial to work with in developing his next year's football team. Although several of the team, including Captain Phil Mills, Cliff Huber, Wilbur Ashby, Ed Tandy, and Milt Nehls will be lost through graduation, there will be some very fine material in the many juniors, next years seniors. Much is expected of Capt. elect Otie Duncan, center, who played one of the best games of any of the players last season and is expected to be one of the finest centers in Southern California next year. The varsity was also greatly weakened by the absence of McKenzie, stellar end, who broke his collar bone in a practice game, but who will be one of the shining stars in the coming season. Harold Weetman, guard, looks like a very good man. Wing and Steer. last years ends will both be back to make the team a little better in the next grid season. Cecil Boulson and Taylor are both a pair of the finest linemen in this part of the country and much is expected from these two players. In all, the prospects look the brightest in years for the next team. Those who fought for the Blue and Gold are: Captain Phil Mills, quarterback: Wilbur Ashby, halfbackg Ed Tandy, tackle: Wing, end: Steer, end: McKenzie, end: Sevey, quarterback: Duncan, center: Penland, center: Weetman, guard: Melsheimer, guard: Wilson, halfback: Taylor, tackle: Kloek, fullback: Worthington, guard: Westmeyer, end: Buck Holtz, tackle: Johnson, guard: Nels, halfback, and Cliff Huber, who was awarded the cup as the most valuable man on the squad, presented by L.

Although they failed to cop the Hag they came in a close second to San Diego, the league winners. At the first of the season the prspects looked very good, but several fellows became ineligible and left Coach VVilson stranded. However, many new fellows came out for the team and it was mainly from this group that HBO" selected his squad. VVilson will not he caught in the same predicament next year for he has broken in many players who look like stars for next years team. In the first league game the lightweights traveled to San Diego to meet the southerners. San Diego presented a heavy team and it seemed as if the game would be a complete walk-away, considering the Hilltoppers had the advantage of the home field. San Diego worked a queer type of kick off, hoping to baffle the Moors. They met with a Fighting little team, however, and were forced to the limit. The Moor backfield, composed of Clapp, Capt. Bice, Mohler and Pure continually made end runs that swept the San Diegons off their feet. The Moors were the first to score, although they failed to convert. San Diego came back. scored and converted making the score 7-6 with five minutes to play till the half. The Moors received the kick-off and gave the ball to Les Newton on the first play for an "end around." Les was tackled with "unnecessary roughness" and received a broken leg. The spirits of the team immediately were broken also and San Diego had little trouble putting over two more touchdowns. ending the game at 21-6. San Diego, however. copped the Southern California honors, so it was no disgrace to come second to a team like them. Those who played for H. S. are: Bice, Clapp, Pure. Nye, Dougan, McCullough, Talbert, Klein, Moore, Mohler, Newton, Vinning, Miller, Strong, Gordon, Farr, Coles. one hundred sixteen M QCa t.D GLENN STURGEON FRED FLINKER FRANK CLIQMENTS GRAHAM CLAPP PHIL JILLS, p WILLIA M KLOEK VVARREN GALLEGHER X71NCENT GAREHIME ROLAND BOYDEN FRED Blcs one hundred sczfcnlfcn . .......,,,,,,,,..q. Heavyweight Basketball This year basketball was not so successful as it has been in previous years. This fact is explained because of the much harded compitition in the Coast League. Coach "Cloudy" Claude Browning's team developed well at the first of the season by copping numerous practice games. They traveled to San Diego to play the first game and brought home the bacon 18-12. On the same trip they stayed over and played Elsinore High School, which they also won by easy margin. The Moors next received an upset at the hands of Long Beach, losing by a 18-5 score. The Moors then got in the habit of losing and were defeated by Whittier, league champs, 33-10, and Pasadena, 28-16. They then got a new habit and started winning streaks by copping the remainder of the games, beating Glendale, 16-15, Santa Ana, 13-4, and South Pasadena, 15-11. The game with South Pasadena Tigers was the Moors big game and was played in the mammoth Alhambra Athletic Club gym. By the time the First game started there were about 1500 people in the gymn and by the time that the 110-lb. Moors had walloped the Kittens, 29-15, there were about 2200 people present. The gym was packed, people were standing along the side lines and walls. The Varsity then played a fast game and took the Tigers into camp 15-11. This victory gave the Moors a league average of 555 points, and gave them undisputed fourth place. The Moors will lose many of their stars by graduation and Coach "Cloudy Claude" will have to dig up some more ma- terial for next year. The team will have Capt-elect Clements, Vincent Gare- hime. Gallegher and Matson back. The Alhambra scores follow: Alhambra 19 . . Alhambra 17 .

This game cost them the title for they did not lose any more games nor did Long Beach, giving them a tie, but Long Beach getting the right to play off for Southern California Cham- pionship. Coach VVilson had some of the best shots in the country on his little team in Captain Orville Mohler, joe Pure, Nye and Gargon. Mohler and Gargon often rang up the total points of the games. Mat, Shuerman, Bayha and Blonde all played well throughout the year and the team should have done better with the raft of material on it, but the one game at Long Beach "hashed" the chances for them. Safford Nye graduated in mid-term and was greatly missed. his place being ably hlled by Joe Pure, however. The entire team but Gargon and Pure will be back for next year, so "Bo" will have little trouble in getting organized next year if Coach Downing does not take any any over to the big team.

Santa Ana South Pasadena 110 Pound Basketball Coach Phil Mill led his fleaweight basketball team very successfully through the League series. They won 3 and lost 4. The little Moors were inspired by Howard "Red" Tebo ,who kept up the spirit even when the score was greatly against them. Tebo was running guard and had an excellent eye for the hoop as well as guarding abilities. Jimmy XVoods wa sanother very good guard on getting the ball after it had hit the back board. Oliver Flood, the smallest player on the squad was a fast little forward and accounted for many A. H. S. points. "Mugs" Pease was also a good forward. being ineligible until the half, but being high point man after the half. He has two more years, as have Flood and XVoods.

South Pasadena 15 one hundred twenty-one Track This year Alhambra has a new. track mentor, being Coach Stoddard, formerly of Pasadena High. As this goes to press before the season we cannot publish any results, just sit back and wait for the league meet held at Pasadena, April 17. The team looks very good and should give the other schools a run for the title. The good thing about Alhambra's chances is that the other schools are strong in the same events and will "cut each others throats." The team showed up very well in the Colesium Relay Carnival, copping first place in the 4-man mile. Sturgeon, Parslow, Alkins and Boulson, ran. Dick and Phil Porslow, formerly of Huntington Park High, were great additions to the team in the sprints and high hurdles. Wallace Glidden quit school and this weakened the mile and 880 runs, although Glenn Sturgeon looks very good for a place in the League meet in the half mile event. Al Shields and Capt. Lee Phillips look good for the 100, negotiating the century in 10:00 and 10:02 respectively. Glenn can also do 11-6 in the pole vault, but this will hardly take a first in the League meet. Bill Kloek is good in the broad jump, Klein and Beck in the mile, and Hudson and Greiser in the weights. With this aggregation, 'Coach Stoddard hopes to win something in the track and field meets. The Moors have already taken into camp, Fuller- ton, 92-21 and Citrus High by a wider margin. They have lost to the strong Inglewood team and the Pasadena squad. The best records for Alhambra men are: 880 yard run-Sturgeon, 2:02. 100 yard clash-Shields, D. Parslow, 10 flat. Mile-Kline, 4:56. ' 440 yard dash-Adkins, Boulson, 53:4.

J BASEBALL TEAM ,yqufvxziurfnfh-5-.x 1.21 Varsity Baseball By virtue of beating the best schools in the southland, Alhambra High School won her first baseball championship in the Coast League. In the first play-off for the Southern California title the Moors beat Compton 7-3. The game was a wonderful demonstration of what' support can do. After trailing for seven innings the Moor fans went frantic and rattled the opposing team so badly with their yelling that Alhambra won easily. Alhambra was matched with Santa Barbara for right to participate in the semi-Hnals when the annual went to press. The success of the team is largely due to the coaching ability of Jess Ranker, coupled with the experience of the players. The 1926 Alhambra team is composed of: Frank Blonde, catcherg Flinker and Uhler pitchersg Duncan, first baggeg Maloney, second base: House, third baseg Mohler, shortstopg Nilson, leftheldg Shields, centerfieldg Flinker, right-- field. Marvin Nix, Rex Hudson, Glen Lane, and Johnny Miller are the sub- stitutes. jack Earle gave a cup to the most valuable player on the' team, and O. W. Lewis generously gave out theatre passes to every player that made a hit. Coach Ranker has some excellent material this year. In Carvel Uhler, southpaw, and Capt. Fred Flinker, he has about every phase of pitching abil- ity needed. Blonde, as backstop, is superb. The infield, which is built around Shortie House, is airtight and each man is a good hitter. The outfield is also worthy of praise for their fly-chasing and hitting qualities. Alhambra scores follow: Alhambra 10 . . San Diego 5 Alhambra 5 Long Beach 1 Alhambra 3 . Wliittier 5 Alhambra 9 .

AL I TENNIS SQUAD Varsity Tennis Tennis at Alhambra High is the one sport that is not restricted to Coast League play. Many outside invitational affairs were entered by Alhambra and we came out fairly successful. Coach R. E. Horne has always developed a fine team and should have a team developed this season that will come in as undisputed second place place with a fight for the title with San Diego, although they have the odds against them. The Moors have been very successful in the season of practice matches preparatory to the league season. Coach R. E. Horne announces that the probable Alhambra line-up throughout the league meet will be Frank Blonde, first singlesg Capt. Lewis Behlow, second singles, Bill Rowley, third singlesg Art Langton, fourth singles, First doubles, Chuck Blonde and Ed "Rube" Wolffg second doubles, Fat Simmons, paired with Merril Melsheimer. Berry Senior quit school just before the league season and was a great loss to the team. Coach Horne will have the same team back next year, with the exception of Simmons and Langton, and should have little trouble copping the honors next year. Carpenteria Tournament This is an invitational affair and Bill Rowley, Lewis Behlow, Chuck Blonde and "Ruben Wolff represented Alhambra. All the Alhambrans ran to the semi-finals. Lewis Behlow won the singles championship, and VVolff and Blonde won the doubles cup for the third year, which makes it permanent possession of A. HQ S. Girls' Athletics Girls athletics at A. H. S. started off with a bang this year. The Seniors won the championship in volley ball. At the beginning of the hockey season every class had a large turn-out for practice. After many hard-fought games the Sophomores captured the championship of the school. Hockey was started at A. H. S. just last year. Our girls have shown a great deal of interest in this new sport. and are rapidly becoming proficient in it. The juniors took the basketball championship, after winning by a large score every game they played. All the teams were very good and put up a hard fight. On March sixth our gym teachers took volley ball, hockey, basketball, and tennis teams to Fullerton to the big girls' play-day held there. We met VX'l1ittier in volley ball and were defeated. Fullerton beat us in hockey. However, A. H. S. won over Orange in basketball, Long Beach defeated Alhambra in tennis. The games at these play-days are never played off for championships. Baseball is yet to be played off. This sport will be played after the annual has gone to press. There is great enthusiasm among the girls, and the games will undoubtedly be close. We shall play boys' rules this year. The system of girls athletics at A. H. S. is handled in such a manner as to produce good sportmanship and a sense of fair play among the girls, not only in athletics, but in everything we do. For a long time girls have not been considered "good sports." We are trying our best to break down this old feeling. Girls can be just as good sports as boys, and have just as much pep. The fairness and good sportsmanship of the girls at Alhambra is ine. Let us keep it up and develop it even more. one hundred twenty-.rczfru G CH .x M PIONSH lv lfioclql-ix' 'l'14i,x RI um' fIIllltIVt'l1 tivcnty-viglzt CII .x A1 PIONSIIIP BAS KETBALL TEAM ig- ' l Varsity Golf Golf is a new sport at Alhambra this year but seemed to be yery popular among the students. Bob Wade, Coach VVilson and Major Elsey deserve the credit for the organization of the new sport which put Alhambra on an equal ranking with other Southern California high schools. Many matches were played with other schools in which Alhambra was very successful. The first league match was played on the Midwick Country Club course against San Diego, and the Moors swept their opponents oil: their feet for a SAO victory. Alhambra also conquered Pasadena, but lost to Glendale 3-.Z and Long Beach, league champions, 4-1. llob VVade, Tom VVebster, Albert Carpenter, johnny Miller and Efren Mata played for Al- hambra, and all but the former are back with the team next year. om' lzxmdrva' lawzty-111:10 Log of ye good Ship "The Moor" skipper-CAPTAIN BETTINGER Sept. 14-We weighed anchor and set sail for "strange ports," with Forrest at the helm, here's to a successful future!

Only through advertisements are we able to publish the "ALHAM- BRAN" at a price within the reach of every member of our school. It is for this reason that more support should be given to the advertisers. A large number of students already patronize the business firms support- ing the annual. With the co-operation of everyone-students, parents and friends-we may convince our advertisers of the real value of space in our year book.

Fifty-seven ways of Escaping Speed Cops. 1. Upon seeing a cop behind you, draw up at the side of the road, and, sitting on the step, peruse a half-finished cross-word puzzle. You will both stay there for some time. 2. Wheri cop is close behind you, suddenly throw in reverse. VVhen you have finished fishing the cop out of your gas tank, he will be only too glad to accept your spare tire as a souvenir. 3. Never drive over eight miles per hour. This always gives unfailing results, and should be tried when other methods fail. 4. Paint your buggy red, put a bell in front, and trail some hose fno, not silkj behind. This works well in the great open spaces where men are men, and cops are Klansmen. 5. Empty bags of tacks behind you. One pound for each 300 yards is suggested. 6. Construct your auto so that the back is a duplicate of the front. Then when you sight a cop jump in the back seat and drive to meet him. This never fails to work. CThere isn't room for the rest, they aren't as effective either as those mentioned.j Get your shoes shined at the Alhambra Shoe Shining Parlor "Charlie knows how" 124 W.
