The history of A. H. 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.

Board of Education
In the rapidly developing High School like our own, progress can be
completely measured by the ordinary standards of attendence, teaching force,
and equipment. 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.
BOARD OF EDUCATION,
CMrstj Lillian M. Gilstrap, Vice-President.

.although the annals of the winter class of 'Zo are now part of the history
of .X. lf. 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.

trarlitinnal rivals in the inter-class rlehate. Again we shnwetl our snperiurity
when we flefeaterl, nut unly the St-ninrs, hnt the whole school, in the schotil
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.

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
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
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.

The XYinter Class of '27 entered the Senior class full of pep and enthus-
iasm. 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
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

About two hundred and fifty, who were successful in completing their
sophomore year, now form one of the largest and peppiest junior classes that
Alhambra High School has ever had. 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."
Much of our class' success has been due to the untiring ehforts of our
class advisor, Mr. lVlcAlpine.

A10 Sophomore Class
-If o7f Qs ""nlf?a-J
Two years ago when we came in we were the largest lfreshman class
the school had ever known and immediately became citizens of .Xlhambrsvx
lligh School by getting 10024 Student liody membership. 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
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
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.

The achievements of the lllO's have been most remarkable this year.
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-
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.

The Spirit of A. H. S.
Looking back over the events of the year 1025-26, we Come to the real-
ization that .-X. ll. 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

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-

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-

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.

The Alhambra High School Students Co-operative
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.

Girls' League Executive Board
The purpose of the Girls' League is to encourage higher ideals of court-
esy, honor and loyalty and to help in all school actviities. lt also co-operates
in community work.
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
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.
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.

'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
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
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
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
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.

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.
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
Besides the boys, Mrs. Swan has two class of girls that she is teaching
a little of the art of stage work.

The Scholarship Society
Emerson truly says, "A Man is relieved and gay when he has put his
heart into his work and done his best, but what he has said or done otherwise
shall give him no peace." 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.

The Latin Club
The organization of this club follows that of the Roman state. 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.

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.

by NADINE Book:
"My big son is going to school today, and he will learn the lesson and
meet the American boys and girls." 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
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
"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
"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
stared in astonishment-VVhat could it mean? He punched the boy next
to him. "Say! Did you see that P"
"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
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.

The work of the Music Department of Alhambra High School for the
year 1925-26 has progressed in the usual manner under the able leadership
and influence of Miss Georgia E. 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
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.

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.

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.

, 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:

This year Coach Harold "Bo" NVilson's lightweight football team was
very successful. 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
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.

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
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.

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

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. '

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

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.

of Simmons and Langton, and should have little trouble copping the honors
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.

Alhambra in tennis. The games at these play-days are never played off for
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.

It isessential that every student realize the importance of advertisements
in the publication of our annual. .
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-

It seemed an eternity since I had heard her voice. .Xn eternity of cease-

my own response. And now I awaited her next words with throbbing expec-

agony and suspense. I had almost succumbed to despaid thinking that I had
lost her forever when I heard her voice-hers-almost in my ear, "Deposit

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
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.
