ALMACI MR. STORM AGNtS OLSON lENORE AMICK RIChARD GALBREATH IRVING WOirSON HARRY PUGH t ABOUT TME CAMPLS THE HISTORY OF ALHAMBRA HIGH SCHOOL ALHAMBRA ' S first high schcxil classes were held in the Garfield grammar school buildint;. In 1900 the first graduating class of this high school held its exer- cises with only three graduates. Later, as the sehix:il grew, a building was erected on the place where the high schtxil now stands. The new building was completed in the fall of 1905. Mr. Wheat, who is now assistant superintendent of the schools of Los Angeles County was then principal of the school. This first year there were five teachers and less than one hundred pupils. Now there are one hundred and eleven teachers and over two thousand pupils. Following Mr. Wheat, Mr. Trowbridge was principal. Then Nathan L. Smith took over the duties of superintendent and principal. Later, when the work grew too burdensome he became superintendent and Mr. Routt was made principal. Mr. Routt held this position until 192 ' ! when Mr. Bettinger took his place. The first building on our campus was located where the administration building now stands. All of the classes were carried on in this one building, with the gymna- sium in the basement. Later the science building, gym, manual training, and com- mercial buildings were built. One of the cottages was Mr. Routt ' s home. The rivalry between South Pasadena and Alhambra started in 1913, when the high school organised its first football team. Fourteen years later, our team beat South Pasadena for the first time, and, on its fifteenth birthday, became the cham- pionship team of California. The school also won glory in 1922 by having the cham- pionship basketball team in Southern and Central California. In 1917 seventeen of our boys from Alhambra High School enlisted in the army. These boys were able to come back to the school that June to receive their diplomas before they left for France. The girls played their part m the war by joining the Red Cross Auxiliary. Five of our teachers are graduates of Alhambra High School. They are Miss Green, Miss Abbey, Mrs. Gilstrap, Miss Artz, and Miss Pease. One of the first Mid-year classes to be formed in Alhambra High graduated in 1924. This was the year that the old administration building was torn down and a new one built in its place. With the passing of the old building went the last of the eventful " Tramp Day. " The school was " growing up " and we could no longer permit a childish thing like " Tramp Day " to interfere with our studies. However, the Seniors have given a substitute for this event in their annual " Kid Day. " In looking over the history of Alhambra High School, we see that we have made great progress in the last twenty years. May we spend that next twenty years im- proving as much as we have in the past. Thirteen WHO S WHO IN THE SUMMER CLASS OF 1929 IT IS with deep regret that I inform you that his Royal Highness, Major George C. Elsey, history professor, descendant of the Mayflower, retired major of the U. S. Army, and professor of various other titles of nobility, has given up the pur- suits of his former life and is now head of the world ' s greatest spiritualistic society, with Miss EfFine P. Blount, as his medium. Yesterday I entered his establishment for the express purpose of determining the exact caliber of my fellow classmen at A.H.S.. I had a previous appointment with Mr. Elsey, and everything was in readiness for the visits from the spirits of another world. The medium was dressed entirely in red blood, and added a startling note of color to the room. Spirits — spirits! I even noticed a bottle of them near Professor Elsey ' s chair! " You have come to consult me? " , the medium asked in a clear bell-like voice. " Yes, about the Senior Class of 1929 " , I replied. ' There are certain things about them I would like to know; so I have come to ask you. " " Proceed " , she answered. " Whom do you consider the most valuable students in the Senior Class? " I asked. " John Schillici " , she replied without a moment ' s hesitation, " and I am sure Mr. Schillici will agree with me! " Of course, after such an intellectual answer, I had the utmost respect for her judgment. The rest of our conversation was as follows: UESriOH AHSWER Considering everything, Bill Horn, but by proper diet- just whom do you think ing this condition might be has the lowest degree of overcome, mentality?

Bettinger To the Stucient Body: Statistics may be dry and uninteresting, but a reading of the statistics of school enrollment as issued by the State Department of Education shows that there are but sixteen senior high schools in the State of California which nw merically are larger than Alhambra High School. How- ever, mere size does not necessarily produce quality. Too often the rapid growth of an organization has meant its ultimate downfall or sin ing to mediocrity because the organization and the personnel could not eep up with the physical growth. We have had a phenomenal growth during the past four years in numbers en- rolled, in variety of new courses offered, in new organizatio-)is within the school, and in cthletic success. A student body became of its size becoming indifferent to any of these features will cause the school to fall into a second rate position. The big job lying ahead of the members of the student body of the Alhambra City High School is to realize that the welfare of the school rests in their eeping, that its progress rests in their eeping, and that its reputation rests in their eeping. May there never he anyone leave us who has not been proud to have contributed to the progress of the Alhambra City High Schooi. George E. Bettinger, Principal. Seventeen ALTHOUGH many people claim that a small high school is better than a large one, I believe that A.H.S., in its present size, is better as well as bigger than ever before. Because of our large enrollment we are able to have an enriched curriculum that would be impossible in a small school. Many subjects now given to well-filled classes would not be possible in a school of a thousand or less. Student body affairs are operated more efficiently and with better financial re- turns than in a small school. There is a more satisfactory type of student body morale where the feeling exists that the members of the student body belong to a big school. In athletics we can com- pete with the biggest and best schools on equal terms. I congratulate A.H.S. upon her growth as well as upon her scholastic and athletic achieveinents and am confidently expecting a bigger and better A.H.S. for next year. Forrest V. Routt To the Student Body: Alhaynbra High School has had a splen- did and successful year in all lines of wor . We have all been happy over our various achievements along scholastic, athletic, and social lines. However, victories do not come unless the right ind of spirit and ideals are found in all of the members of the student body so as, to ma e a perfect whole. My best wishes go with each Sen- ior on graduation day and are extended to each student returning in the fall, that it may indeed be true for each one from wor now accomplished, or to be accom- plished, that " Today ..well-lived ma es yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. " Effine p. Blount. To the Students of A.H.S. : This past year has been one of adjust- ments made necessary by many problems which arose out of our over-crowded con- ditions. Conditions have not been ideal for conducting the activities of a large high school such as ours, but the students have met these problems as best they could. It has been a distinct privilege for me to be associated rather intimately with the Student Body of A.H.S. In my rela- tionship with the boys, I have observed a spirit of loyalty, cooperation, and com- radeship, which has created a very pleas- ant environment in which to wor . H. M. Werre. Eighteen OFFICE FORCES OFTENTIMES we do not realize the importance of the office workers. They are always willing and glad to help the students. During the absence of the head officers the assistants take their places and carry on the work in the same amnner. Most of the students of Alhambra High School are familiar with the office forces and wish to express their appreciation for what they have done. The office forces are as following: Girls ' Vice-Principdi Secretary Boys ' Vice-Principal Secretary Attendance Office Registrar ' s Office Superintendent s Office Part Time Office .... Telephone Office 7 ' iineteen 1 Twentv FACULTY Mr. Bettinger Miss Blount Mr. Werre Miss Brown Miss Abbey Miss Anderson Miss Armstrong Mrs. Arnett Miss Artz Mrs. Beebe Miss Bevan Mr. Miss Brooks Mr. Burton Mr. Butts Miss C.

Zellhoefer Twenty-one CLASSES WINTER CLASS OF 79 THE Winter Class of ' 29 entered A.H.S. as a meek and timid uroup of Freshmen, hut left heinsj; one ol the peppiest elasses ever to graduate. In our Freshman year we won the Freshman Base- ball Championship of the Central League. Our Junior and Sophomore years were most exciting; we won the Inter-class football championships; many students were playing on the varsity teams; and we gave the first Sophomore dance that had ever been given. The class as a v hole was continually active in student body affairs. Our Senior play was considered one of the finest plays ever to be given by a Senior Class. Orville Mohler As to finances we ended our four years with a large surplus of money to our credit. I want to take this opportunity in behalf of the class to express our appreciation for what Miss Kemper has done for us. It seems mighty hard to realise that our high school days are over, and the Class of W ' 29 wishes the Student Body of A.H.S. the greatest success in the world. Now that we have graduated and left all of our friends, our class will gradually drift apart, but I know that the memories of dear old A.H.S. will linger on many years after our separation.

The athletic teams have always had our most loyal support, and in most of the Student Body activities, our class has done more than its share. Donald Fowle " Peg O ' My Heart " , which was directed by Mrs. Bertha Wiley Wynne and presented by the Class of S ' 29, was a huge success in every respect. The Senior dance sponsored by our class was one of the biggest social af- fairs of the year. During the four years we have won the paper drive each time, this is something which has never been done before by any class. All in all, our last year has been one crowned with success. This was made pos- sible by the cooperation of all those in the class. At this time we wish to thank the teachers for their untiring efforts in helping us with our studies. And now, in our parting words, the class wishes to express its deepest and most sincere love and respect foi Mr. Lawson, our class, advisor. Donald Fowle, President.

Our reputation is contrary to that which the P.G. ' s usually have — that of being dumb; we are composed of many students who are taking Post Graduate courses be- cause they wish to broaden the range of their knowledge and better that which they already possess. The P.G. ' s this year have many representatives in the various organizations and even in some of the athletic activities. We have our class as well established as possible, considering the difficulties under which it is necessary for us to work, and we feel that much of our success is due to the unfailing efforts of Mrs. Arnett, our class advisor. We elect officers the same as do the other classes in the school, and we are always ready to do our best in helping along with any work which may come up. The P.G. ' s also have a representative present at all school commission meetings. Considering that it is extremely difficult for our class to get together, we feel that we are doing something worth while in carrying out the work which we are ex- pected to do for the school. Fr.- NCES B. RBER, Vice-President President Secretary Treasurer Class Advisor Norman Mohler Frank La Courreye Charles Coryell Mrs. Arnett Fifty-three WINTER CLASS OF 30 As EACH graduating class leaves the school, we are reminded of the prominent part it has played in student body activities. Likewise we, the Class of W ' 30, whose turn is now near at hand, wish to recall the pages of history which we have filled with deed of high merit. As each page is slowly turned, the names of many of the football, baseball, ten- nis, and basketball players, commissioners,, scholarship members, various club members, and popular students will bring back memories of the honors and victories won by Alhambra High and the Class of W ' 30 which helped to win these awards. From this class come some of the greatest captains of our winning teams. On January, 17 and 18, the Class of W ' 30 presented the Junior Play " Penrod " , appraised by many teachers and townspeople as one of the best productions ever pre- sented at Alhambra High School. Throughout our entire school life we have had a great deal of enthusiasm and school spirit. Miss Kemper, our Senior Class Advisor, has helped to make our last semesters here eventful ones.

As we review the activities in which our class has participated, we are inclined to believe that the Class of S ' 30 has received an abundance of that school spirit, for which A.H.S. is well-known. As Freshmen, we did not startle the school by our prowess, but we did obtain a foundation in school affairs which has since proved its usefulness. We did, however, have men out for Football, Track, Baseball, Basketball, and Tennis. In our Sophomore year, several in our class earned letters in Football and Basket- ball. In nearly every branch of activity, the name of S ' 30 was to be found. We won the school championship interclass debate last year, our debaters being Dorothy Heck and Bob North. This year we have succeeded admirably well in upholding the traditions of Al- hambra High. Three of the members of this year ' s championship football team were members of our class. In every other sport we had at least one representative. The Junior Play " Penrod " was one of the best dramatic productions of the year. We wish to express our sincerest appreciation to Mr. McAlpine, our Class Ad- visor, for his splendid spirit of cooperation which he has shown at all times. Allen Ray, President Vice-President Treasurer Secretary Dorothy Heck Dick Coar Phyllis Rich. rdson Fifty-six Fifty-seven WINTER CLASS OF ' 31 WE, THE Winter Class of ' 31, look back over our two years of high school life, with fond memories of the past. Entenng high school in January, 1927, we soon established ourselves as a wide- awake class. We have contributed our share to all the school activities and have created a spirit that we think has not been surpassed by any class. At the conclusion of our Freshman year, we seemed to be passing from one world to another, which was entirely different. Our Sophomore year was a complete success. We placed our share of men on all the athletic teams, and our debating team, consisting of Bob North and Dorothy Heck, won the interclass debate championship. This was an achievement of which any class could be proud. Although we did not receive 100% Student Body membership, our sales mounted to a very high average for a Sophomore class. Thus you see we are members of the same old peppy class that entered high school in W ' 27. Now thab we are members of the upper division, we are striving to create some special interest that will add to the laurels of the Winter Class of ' 31. We wish to extend our sincere appreciation to Miss Erwine for her untiring efforts as our class advisor. WooDRow Winkler, President. Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Class Advisor Alice Duel Alice Branham Boyd Georgi Miss Erwine Fifty-eight Fifty-nine SUMMER CLASS OF 11 THE summer class of ' 31 started the year ofF hy doing their full share toward winning the paper drive. In track and interclass sports, the members of the class did better than is generally expected of an AlO Class. Our two class meetings were a complete success. At tha first one we enjoyed a reading given by Vivian Mar- pie, a song by Coreen Brown, and a cornet solo by Clark Ferry. We won the inter-class debate championship, our spaekers being Raymond Rees and Melvin Nelson. On May 10, we held a skating party at Walla Halla skating rink, and everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable time. D. N Hurley,.... President.

As A9 ' s, they began to realise that they were really a part of the Associated Stu- dent Body. Now, as BlO ' s, we consider ourselves full-fledged members of A.H.S. Many of the class took part in the various school activities, such as football, basketball, track, and swimming. Although the class has not had many social activities in the past, it is now plan- ning some future social events, such as skating parties, hikes, and picnics, some of which are to be held before the end of the semester.

Vice-President Secretary and Treasurer Class Advisor Margaret Beauverd Harold King Mr. Miller Sixty-two 0-1 O Sixty-three (b SUMMER CLASS OF ' 32 WE OF thq A9 Class are about to end what we feel has been a most success! ul year, considering of course, that we are only Freshmen. The ' paper drive was the first school affair in which we took part. Although we worked very hard, we did not win. However, we feel that this was not due to any lack of effort on the part of the Juniors and Freshmen, but because of the far-reaching ability of the Seniors and Sophomores. We point with pride to the places many of our members have earned in the various school activities. In athletics, in the Scholarship Society, and in the " Vloorish Frescoes " , we have received recognition worthy of an older class. A large number of our class attended a skating party held at Walla Halla. This event will long be remembered, by those who were present, as a most successful ven- ture both socially and financially. Before we accept the title of Sophomores, we wish to express our sincere appre- ciation for the great interest Mrs. Farmer, our Class Advisor, has shown in us and for the way in which she has successfully started us toward our various aims in life.

The large enrollment of three hundred students is an incentive to establish new records in scholastic achievement in order to contribute a share in the development of student activities. Already we are represented on the Freshman team for interclass debate. Next year we hope to make a greater mark for ourselves and win the paper drive. We greatly appreciate Miss lone Zellhoefer ' s kind guidance in our struggles through the first year, and we hope to meet next year ' s problems with strong and determined hearts.

Above them floats a city, A beautiful city of clouds Everchanging in shape, from the wind, Evcrchanging in color from the setting sun. A mansion stands beside a scarlet lake Bordered with trees jewelled in moss. Skyscrapers, their massive forms Reaching high above the moss draped trees, Seem built of strength; Until their fragile forms are torn and rent by the changing wind. It is a city of beauty and color. Not of steel, or of marble, or gold. I scoff at worldly material things As I look at this city of clouds. No financier could build it. No artist could paint the colors there. No poet could tell of its rivers. Or sing of its lakes and trees. ' Tis a city for thought and meditation. Of color, of beauty outrivaled, Priceless to me for a moment. Then the buildings fall with the breeze They darken with the setting sun. I am left with memories of a faded hope. Of a city of utmost beauty. I am left with a massive problem before me. The world will not accept memories. I must build myself a city Of steel, or of marble, or gold. Betty Lawyer Sixty ' tiine THE DIARY OF A HANNA BROWN JULY 28, 1924 — Imagine me, Hanna Brown, leaving this convent where I have lived practically all of my life, to teach school in Yucca, a village near the Mex- ican border. From what I have heard this place must be terrible. The longest that they can get a teacher to stay there is about one year. However, I cannot be par- ticular. That is the only position open now to a young and mexperienced teacher, and I must stand on my own feet now that father has died. August 20, — I have been busy trying to get things ready to go to Yucca. The place must be as terrible as everyone says, for this morning, Mr. James of the Board of Education, whom I just today discovered had been a good friend of my father, gave me a small gun which he called a colt. I must have looked as frightened as I felt when he handed it to me, because he said " Don ' t be frightened. It won ' t hurt you. See, it has a safety device and cannot go off until you first turn the lever of this device. It is best to keep it loaded; you might need it in a hurry sometime. " I took the thing, but it nearly frightened me to death even to look at it. Imagine me with a gun in my possession; I know that even if my life depended on it, I could never fire it. September 10, — At last I am here. I hate the place already. It is worse than I ever expected. But perhaps things will look better tomorrow after I have rested. I am certainly ' tired after that long, dusty ride of nine miles in that rattling old Ford, piled high with the mail and my trunk. What dreary country we came through; nothing but dust and dried-up sagebrush; there was almost no sign of life, except once in a while a rabbit or a squirrel which jumped up from the sagebrush. Mr. Johnson, the driver, said that there were a lot of snakes in this country. I know Yd faint if ever I saw a real snake. The people here certainly appear to be rough and uncouth. When we reached town this afternoon, the men who were standing around on the streets shambled up and supported themselves by leaning in a lazy manner on the car. I noticed that many of them were Mexicans. One said, " Any news, boss? " Each one took turn in staring at me curiously for a minute. I heard one say in a low tone, " Another tenderfoot. You can sure tell by her looks. Wonder what she thinks she can do here? " I was really terribly frightened with all of them stand- ing around and gasing at me like that. It seems that all I can do is to find fault with this place. How little and un- homelike is this cabin; there are only two rooms. In one is a bed and a bureau; in the other is a little wood stove and a table . What a time I had trying to get sup- per on this little old stove; I hope the clerk doesn ' t forget to bring the wood he promised me. One good feature, though, is that my cabin is near the school, but I have to go about half a mile to the village to get my groceries and mail. Seventy I just heard a terrible screech ' like sound. I cannot imaf inc what it might be. There it goes again. I try not to be afraid, but I don ' t think I can sleep much tonight. September 14, Nothing in particular has happened until today, the first day of school. There are twenty-seven pupils altogether. Most of them are quite young, but there are two older boys who I think might cause me some trouble. I am par- ticularly suspicious of Manuel, a Mexican boy, who is about fifteen years of age. He is very noisy and torments the younger children. Tonight I hear some other kinds of noises. I wonder what it is; I hate these weird sounds. September 15, — Mrs. Johnson, the v ife of the postman, came over to see mc today. She is kind-hearted but very frank. I asked her what I heard last night. She said it must have been a coyote. They are plentiful around here and come in and steal the ranchers ' chickens. Mrs. Johnson also informed me as to the pranks the students played on my predecessors. I don ' t blame those teachers for staying only a year. I wonder how long I can stand it. There goes one of those screeching owls now. September 30, — What a day I have had! I must have screamed terribly when I put my hand on that little snake; but who would have believed that any of them would be so mean as to put aj snake in my desk. I shudder to think of it. I could not help crying. I was so frightened; and to think that they actually laughed. I was so upset I couldn ' t even scold them. They will probably try it again because I let them out early, but I was so weak and nervous that I couldn ' t teach another minute. I must not let the boys take advantage of me. September 31 — Today I asked who had put the snake in my desk. As I ex- pected, no one responded, but I think the guilty one is Manuel, and it is his older brother that is loafing in front of the pool hall up town every time I go to get my groceries. He always has something to say when I pass, but I pretend not to hear him. He probably urges his brother on; but what is there I can do? October 12, — I thought there would be no more trouble, but today there was a big black spider in my desk. As before, I screamed, and was so frightened and nervous that I had to dismiss school early. I must find out who is at the head of these pranks. October 13, — At last, I have discovered who is the cause of all this trouble. As I thought, it is Manuel. After a severe scolding, he laughed and said, " Don ' t blame me. It ' s my big brother that tells me to do it. " The next time I see his big brother, Pedro, I think they call him, I am going to tell him a few things. October 14, — I guess I haven ' t improved maters any. Today, when I was going to the store, Pedro, Manuel ' s brother was, as usual, standing in front of the pool hall. I stopped and told him something; I don ' t know what. I was so angry, and all he did was to stand there and laugh. October 23, — Such a terrible thing has happened that I have not felt like writ- ing in my diary until now. On last Friday, the sixteenth, I think, the awful thing Seventy-one happened. It was about eight-thirty, and I was sitting in front of the stove reading. Everything was quiet except for the crackhng of the wood in the stove. Suddenly, I heard, just outside the door, a screach-like sound. I was paralyzed wnth fear. I knew it was neither owl nor cqyote. I had never heard anything like it before. Everything was quiet then for a few minutes, and I sat still in my chair, fearing to move. Although I was directly in front of the fire, I felt cold. Then, suddenly, that terrible scream again pierced the quiet night. It sounded like some human being in tcrnble agony and pain. There was nothing I could do. I was alone in the little cabin, half a mile from any help. The only thing I had for protection was the little gun, which I kept in the bottom drawer of my bureau but I knew I could never be brave enough to fire it. For the third time, I heard that screech, and with it came the sound of some- thing scraping against the side of the cabin. At this, I jumped up. What was I to do? I wouldn ' t dare move outside of the cabin. I stood in the middle of the room, straining my ears to hear the least sound. Everything was still. I guess I stood there for ten minutes. I was beginning to think that whatever it was had gone away when I heard it again, much worse than ever before, and with a sort of tapping on the window. I screamed and ran into my bedroom. All fear of the gun seemed to leave me. That was my only means of protection, and my only thought was to get hold of it. I jerked the drawer open and feverishly tore the clothes from it and grasped my gun, which had been lying in my dresser drawer ever since I came to Yucca. I dashed into the other room and fired it out the window from which the sound had come. There was one cry and then all was silent. I stood dazed in the middle of the room with the gun in my hand for — I don ' t know how long. I was so exhausted that I finally went into the othr room and lay down on the bed. Just at dawn, I got up. I had beena sleep. The first thing that met my sight was the gun. What was it that I had done last night? Oh! Yes — those terrible screams, and I had fired at something and must have hit it. I went to the window and looked out. There, on the ground, near the cabin, was a man ' s hat. Then I reahzed what I had done. It has been over a week now, and I do not yet know who was my victim. On Saturday and Sunday I sat in the house, not daring to go out. Of course, Monday, I had to open school, and, to my surprise, Manuel was extremely polite. After school he offered to do the janitor work, which was spcified for me to do in my contract. Since then, Manuel has been the best kind of pupil and tries to help me in every way. Perhaps it is because his brother is gone. I never see Pedro loaf- ing on the streets anymore. October 26, — Well, what do you think? It was Pedro that I fired at. He came last night carrying his arm in a sling, and actually apologized for tr dng to frighten me. He said that it was good enough for him and he had misjudged me. He had believed I would not have nerve enough to do anything, and he admired me for my courage. I believe I have made a friend. Seventy-two December 20, There ;ire just five more days until Christmas; time certainly passes quickly out here. 1, haven ' t written in my diary since October 26, but I have been so busy getting my Christmas program ready that I haven ' t really had time. Tiic program was very good. Anyway, Mrs. Johnson said that everyone enjoyed it. Each pupil took some part. What a time I had training them; Manuel was the main feature of tho program. He has a very good voice, and he delighted us all as he sang. Peace on Earth. Good Will to Men. Such a change has taken place m that boy since the first day of school. Now he tries to help me in ever ' way he possibly can, instead of tormenting me. I am really taking an interest n my work now. The children are very inter- esting. I feel as though I were accomplishing something, and that everyone is appre- ciating my efforts. December 21, Won ' t the girls back m the convent be delighted with the beau- tiful Spanish shawl that Manuel gave me? After the Christmas program and after everyone had gone home, he came wearing a new sombrero and suit and was neater than I have ever seen him before. ' Very timidly, he handed me a package and waited for me to open it. When I showed my pleasure at receiving such a gift, he merely stood there with a broad grin on his face. December 22,-1 start back tomorrow to the convent to spend the Christmas vacation. I shall be glad to go back and see my old friends again, but I shall be anx- ious to return to my twenty-seven pupils and my cabin in this land of sage brush.

EVENING IN PARADISE Milton Now came still evening on, and twilight gray Had in her somber livery all things clad; Silence accompanied; for beast and bird. They to their grassy couch, these to their nests. Were slunk, all but the wakeful nightingale; She all night long her amorous descant sung. Silence was pleased: now glowed the firmament With living saphires; Hesperus, that led The starry host, rode brightest, till the moon. Rising in clouded majesty, at length Apparent queen, unveiled her peerless light, And o ' er the dark her silver mantle threw. Seventy-four A INCOGNITO PRINCE was coming incognito onto the tor a little dance, and aboard that boat, excitement reigned. Nell went to her room to rest so that she might look her best for the conquest at hand. Nell was used to conquests, but this one was going to be the most thrilling one of her career. She was always the belle of the dance, and she had no thought but that she would be the much sought after girl at this one. Nell knew that she was beautiful; she would have been dull if she had not known it, and she was posi- tive of her power to captivate the Prince. She waited impatiently for the call of the hostess. At last it came, and Nell calmly entered the ball-room. She was beautiful; there was no doubt about it; many of the men of the Prince ' s body-guard proved this by jumping to their feet and rushing over to her for an in- troduction. There was one young man who was especially attentive. He was of medium height, rather well-built, nothing of beauty in his features, but his personality shone out of his face, and aided him, making him an altogether handsome man. But he was not the Prince, thought Nell, and the Prince alone was the one she wished to notice her. Which one was he? Was he that tall, handsome man in the far corner to whom every one was saluting? Was he that short, fat, dumpy-looking man who sat off in the corner and drank his wine as though he were actually en- joying the " bally old stuff. " Dimly, Nell remembered having read somewhere that Princes often were bloated in just such a manner as this one — wouldn ' t it he awful if he were the one? But while all this was going on in Nell ' s m.ind, the one young man, who said that his name was George, was standing beside her, seemingly warning off all comers. Reluctantly, Nell danced with him — he was a good dancer. But Nell was bothered. She had planned all that day what she would do if the Prince should ask her to dance; she had made herself as beautiful as dawn just to attract him, and here was this " child " pestering her, not leaving her alone for a moment, and she had to waste all the precious time with him that she had planned to spend with the prince. She tried every known cure, and at last resorted to " snubbing " him. The first time she tried this, the action was met with a laugh from the ship ' s company, and George turned red with embarrassment. It was queer how all the men were leaving her alone now; they had been so attracted to her at first. George now began to show signs of restlessness, and a vague desire to dance with someone else. Of course, this was exactly what Nell had wished all the time, but now that he was actually leaving her alone, she would have given anything to have him come back. Seventy-jive At last he again asked her to dance, and, oh! fickle woman, her condescension was perfect. George was quite nonchalant; she had never had such a terrible time in her life. Imagine being nonchalant with 7s(eH in one ' s arms! " What do you think the Prince will do tonight? " she asked haughtily. " Oh, he will dance with the prettiest girl in the room, of course, " and George grinned at her. " Oh! " said Nell, freesingly, and they danced on in silence for quite a while before Nell considered herself enough under control to venture another question. " How tall is he? " " About as tall as I am, " replied George, " but why all the questions so suddenly; aren ' t you satisfied? " Nell just looked at him and sighed. Was he thoroughly insane, or did he have as large a superiority complex as he seemed to have? The conversation floated on to other channels, and at last it was time for the company to return to its ship. Nell, full of disappointment, went to her state-room to cry herself to sleep, and to wonder whether she was growing too old to be attractive any more. The next morning she woke early, and, after dressing, she sauntered out onto the deck to look at the water and to brood over her defeat of the night before. While she was gazing off into space, the captain of her ship came up, and they began to talk over the dance. " You seemed to be having a wonderful time, " he smiled, " I never saw a girl so popular as you were at first. " Nell winced at the last words, but bore up under the strain of embarrassment. " Oh, I had a marvelous time, but which one was the Prince? " The captain looked at her with unbelieving eyes, opened his mouth, shut it, and opened it again to say — " W-w-w-why you ought to know; you danced with him all evening.

Seventyseven SCHOOL LITE STUDENT BODY JT HAS always been customary that each Commissioner J- General write something for the Annual. In the past they have always written about the successful year that they have had the pleasure of witnessing. But I believe that this year far surpasses any that wo have ever ' known. There were many activities dunng the past year of which wc have been justly proud. The most outstand- ing of these was our championship football team. I am taking this opportunity to express, not only the students ' appreciation towards these men and Coach Hobbs, but also my own. They have done more for ranking A.H.S. as one of the best high schools in Southern California than ayone can realise. Each and every member of the student bixly, by giving his support to the team was instrumental in its success. Speaking from an athlete ' s standpoint, may I say that little do the students realize how their enthusiasm reaches the players during the game. It is that indefinable something that urges the players on to victory. Not only was the year a success from an athletic standpoint but financially as well. Even though a student body like ours, larger than the average high school, spends a great deal of money, we have always had a surplus. As representative of the Student Body, I wish to thank Mr. Potter for his untiring efforts in handling our finances. I cannot find words to thank my fellow commissioners for the wonderful coopera ' tion that they gave me. The students in general do not know of the tremendous -tr-tm m responsibilities which fall upon the commissioners. It is B their duty to see that all branches of student body govern- HH| ment are taken care of in a successful manner. The unity dM between the student body and the commissioners plays an important part i the success of these duties. The faculty deserves a great deal of credit for the voluntary elfort which they put forth to make our school curriculum worthwhile. In closing, since I realize that these are my last words to the students of A.H.S., it is extremely difficult Seventw-nine for me to express my true feeling. As a parting word, may I wish the faculty, Stu- dent Body, and future commissioners the utmost success and happiness. Orville Mohler. This year has been one of the most successful years that A.H.S. has ever known. Our athletic teams have shown their prowess on the field, our debate teams have shown their ability on the stage, and the entire Student Body has cooperated for the better standing of our school both in scholarship and in the supporting of our teams. The school has grown considerably this year, and it has been very hard for the commission to satisfy the entire student body in different matters. The commission has done its best, and with the entire cooperation of the student body, Alhambra High is among the most highly rated schools in Southern California. This year has been the best year Alhambra High has ever had in athletics. During the fall semester our Foot- ball Team won the Coast League championship going through the entire schedule undefeated. For the unof- ficial title of Southern California, the team played one game with Compton High School, v, inning with a score of 19 to 7. Mr. Potter At this time I wish to extend, on behalf of the executive commissioners, the hear- tiest congratulations to all the members of the team and the coaching staff. The Bas- ketball team placed third in the league standings by winning four out of seven games. Alhambra was also represented in tennis, some of the members of the team placing in the finals at Ojai. The student body commission at this time wishes to thank Mr. Potter for the wonderful advice that he has given to the commissioners during the past term. We also wish to thank Miss Shropshire and Mr. Bettinger for their splendid cooperation with us. The retiring commission wishes next semester ' s commission a most successful year. John Seixas.

The purpose of the League is to promote the spirit of good will among the girls. The Christmas work, which is carried on each year for the purpose of aiding needy families, is indicative of the goodwill spirit of the League. This year the executive officers of both the Girls ' League and the Boys ' Federa- tion have held joint meetings to discuss various plans, and they have also united in certain activities. A new policy for collecting dues has been instituted. Instead of the customary dues, the Girls ' League and the Boys ' Federation gave a joint movie, the proceeds of which were used to carry on the work of the two organizations. In order to promote a spirit of friendliness, the Leagues of South Pasadena and Alhambra exchanged programs, which were received with great enthusiasm. The League has also participated in many of Alhambra ' s athletic programs. It gave a complimentary dinner to both our champion football teams and to the base- ball team. The representatives for the federation conventions were; Mary Patten and Doro- thy Behlow for the autumn meeting, and Rosamond ' Routt and Carol Holmes for the one held in the spring. Mary Patten, President. The officers of the past year have been: President ....... Mary Patten Vice-President Rosamond Routt Secretary Carol Holmes Treasurer Dorothy Behlow Eighty-four ADVISORY BOARD THE Advisory Board, consisting of one representative from both A and B divi- sions of the four classes, together with the various committee chairmen, cooperates with the Executive Board in all its work. The programs for the monthly meetings are arranged by the class representatives. The Social chairman an d her committee take charge of all the social activities of the League. Both the executive and advisory boards act as hostesses to the new girls at the beginning of each semester. TTie Girls " League Hi Jinks was one of the most successful events of the year. Some very clever stunts were given by each class. After the program, refreshments were served, and the day ' s program was completed with dancing in the gymnasium. The Advisory Board consisted of Katherine Huguenin and Doris Lowry, senior representatives, Barbara Douglas and Patricia Schulze, juniors, Vivian Marple and Winifred Peters, sophomores, Lorraine Parker and Betty Packer, freshmen. The committee chairmen were: Social Chairman ' Welfare Chairman Athletic Manager Stage Crew Manager Evelyn Pe. ' krson Phyllis Rich.ardson Dorothy Wells Ger-aldine Smitk Eighty-five ■ Z ' . BOYS FEDERATION THE Boys " Federation, although only two years old, is a fully organized institution of the school. Bill Lockett, the first semester president, deserves a great deal of credit for the way he carried on the work of the Fedration. There were many activities during the first semester. Besides our monthly pro- grams at home, there was much to do in cooperation with other schools. The executive committee of the Boys ' Federation meets every two weeks to take care of the business problems. In cooperation with the Girls ' League, the Federation takes care of a great deal of charity work. The biggest event of the year was at Christmas. At this time the Girls ' League and the Boys ' Federation took up a collection, which, combined with the Christmas gifts, given by both organisations, gave aid to many needy families. Early in the second semester, Alhambra sent a delegation to Pasadena to attend the annual Coast League Federation meeting. Many questions were brought up con- cerning school problems, and it was inspiring to learn that Alhambra High is not the only school that has serious school problems to solve. In the evening, Pasadena was host to the delegates and presented a very good program. Twice during the year, the Boys ' Federation and the Girls ' League have put on joint programs. The money derived from these programs helped to carry on the work of both organizations. As is the usual custom, Alhambra and South Pasadena exchanged programs this year. These programs help immensely in furthering the friendly spirit of the two schools. During the last semester, four meetings were held, and the programs presented were very interesting and were immensely enjoyed. Despite the numerous works carried on this year, there is still a large surplus in the treasury. Eighty-six ADVISORY COUNCIL We of the Federation would like to thank Mr. Werre, oui advisor, for the help and advice he has given us during the past year. He is largely responsible in bringing this year ' s work to such a successful close. The Federation would also like to thank the Girls " League for its cooperation in solving the many school problems. Bill Horn, President.

A most efficient staff aided these two editors. Bill Burke made a wonderful associate to Willie Ballard, and Charles Jennings proved very capable as associate editor during the second semester. On several occasions, he took the Moor over and ran it by himself. Oliver Brown handled the finances for both semesters. The Moor, in its one last, final statement would like to take this space, to show the need of having the students do their own printing. At present it is almost impossible to get the very latest news in the Moor, due to the fact thot is must be taken outside of school to he printed. It is necessary at times to reduce the si:e of the paper, in order that it may carry through the year, on the amount that the student bixJy gives it in the budget. If the student body could have their own press and linotype, the Moor could be twice as big, with the same cost. Eighty-nine w .9 V DEBATE " S,_ 4 - ' ' SOUTHERJi CALIFOKN.IA LEAGUE LOS ANGELES HIGH ■ " T E MET our first opponetns in the Southern California Debate League with » ' two inexperienced, yet splendid debaters — Bob North and Jack Casstevens. Our boys upheld the negative side of the question, Resolved: That the Jury System as Now Practiced in the United States Should Be Abolished. Those who were fortunate enough to attend this debate could surely have had no criticism of their work. Although Los Angeles was victorious, winning a 2 to 1 decision of the judges, we were as proud of our boys as we would have been had they won. They met ar( excellent team, fought hard, and accepted defeat with a grace that has always characterized debaters of A.H.S. Tvjinety MANUAL ARTS The second clash in the Southern California League, terminated for Alhambra, more successfully than the first. Constance Ehy, the only experienced debater re- maining with us this year, and Carl Tivel, a new and inexperienced speaker, displayed excellent teamwork throughout the debate. The question — a very subtle one — Resolved: That the 6-4-4 plan should be adopted by the California School system, caused Manual Arts, upholder of the Neg- ative, to experience much difficulty from the beginning. SAN DIEGO AT A.H.S. This dual debate was decidedly one of the greatest and most interesting events of the debate season. Directly preceding the debate, the band, under the direction of Mr. Ulmer, played several compositions. The music was closely followed by a num- ber of creditable exhibitions of the Gym Club, under the supervision of Mr. Turley. Then came the debate with Ed Nelson and Howard Allen striving for the blue and gold. The question. Resolved: That a System of Compulsory Voting Should be Adopted by the United States, held the interest of the audience admirably well. The result of the excellent form shown by Howard and Ed was, indeed, very satisfactory ' . San Diego could not withstand the splendidly organized case of the affirm- ative, and left with us the wonderful, unanimous decision, 3 to 0. A.H.S. AT SAN DIEGO Filled with confidence by the victory of Ed and Howard in the first combat of this dual debate, Allen Ray and Eugene Sipe set forth for San Diego. The question for debate was the same as that in the previous conflict, namely: That the United States Should Adopt a System of Compulsory Voting, but this time Alhambra defended the negative. Interestingly enough the Affirmative, upheld by San Diego, again emerged victorious. Allan and Eugene should prove excellent material for next year ' s team. 7 inety-one S ' AH GABRIEL VALLEY LEAGUE EXCELSIOR The first debate with Excelsior in the new San Gabriel Valley League, created a good deal of interest, for we were by no means certain of a favorable decision. Our speakers on this occasion were Annette Kratka and Allen Hubbard, both inexperienced, but nevertheless full-fledged debaters. Annette and Allen maintained the Affirmative of the question resolved: That Billboards in the State of California should not be abolished. So decisively did they speak that one critical judge, without a moments hesitation, awarded the decision to Alhambra. CITRUS Simultaneously wtih the victory over Manual Arts on Januar ' 2 came the vic- tory of Dorothy Heck and Paul Gentry over Citrus Union High School in the San Gabriel Valley League. The question and side upheld by Dorothy and Paul were the same as those upheld at Manuel Arts. Citrus, it will be remembered, debated with Hollywood at Alhambra last year, for supremacy m the Southern California League. Doroty and Paul, however, entirely unimpressed by the reputation of Citrus, en- tered the conflict with confidence, and brought home to Alhambra the glorious 1 decision of the expert judge. ? linetytwo MONROVIA Sonny Farrcl and R,iy McAllister, our representatives at Monrovia, had the honor of being the only two league debaters chosen from this year ' s elementary debate class. The question, the same as debated between Alhambra and Los Angels High, was Resolved: Tliat the Jur ' System as now Practiced in the United States Should Be Abolished. Sonny and Ray upheld the negative. The negative side ot this question, however, seemed to bear an ominous signifi- cance for Alhambra, for once more, after a hard fight, we lost, Monrovia receiving the decision of one judge. ORATORICAL CONTEST There is a certain period of each debate season in which all attention is given to the aspiring orators. This year they met on March 1 in our auditorium for the finals of the contest. Jack Casstevans, a Junior, speaking on The Constitution and Its Influence on other Federalisms, won first place. Unfortunately for Alhambra and for himself. Jack, who was to represent us at Glendale in the District Contest, became ill and was unable to compete. Nevertheless, he had a splendid oration, and we know he would have done well. THE CLARK TROPHY Each year, at the close of the debate season, there is presented by Mr. W. J. Clark, an attorney of Alhambra, a splendid and much coveted award for excellenece in debating — the Clark Trophy. The histor ' of the Clark Trophy is mo. t interesting. This year, 1929, the cup was award- ed to a girl, Constance Eby. Constance may be justly proud of her accomplishment, for she has gained a double distinction, by being the first girl to win this trophy. Miss Zellhoefer Miss W. lker y inety-three GRUMPY, " the senior play presented by the class of W ' 29, was one of the best and most entertaining dramatic productions ever produced in Alhambra. The leading role of Grumpy was expertly taken by Louis Hall, who supposedly acquired that name because of his gruff disposition. His granddaughter, Virginia, was played very well by Nina Duke. The rest of the characters were also exceptionally well cho- sen and suited to their roles. In addition the plot was intriguing. It centered around the loss of a very valu- able diamond, on whose safety depended the fate of the hero and heroine. The performance was a success from every standpoint, and it is conceded that the players were equal to professionals. Especial credit and praise should be given to Mrs. Wynne who directed the play, and Charlotte Gross who assisted her as student di- rector. " Grumpy " is a play which will long be remembered by the people of Alham- bra. l inety-four THE CAST WAS AS FOLLOWS: Mrs. McLaren Caroline Herrick Mr. Bullivant (Grumpy) ........ LouiS Hall Virginia Bullivant .......... Nina Duke Ernest Harold Weetman Jarvis Robert Bowers Dawson Thomas Brooks Keble George Schaetzel Dr. McLaren Rudolph Stalheber Susan Frances Barber Merridew Willlam Lockett Mr. Valentine Wolf Donald Cleveland T inetyfive T " PEG O ' MY HEART " HE Senior Class of S " 29 presented for its senior play " Peg O ' My Heart " , whicn was one of the most enjoyable plays ever presented in Alhambra High School. The plot centers around a little Irish girl, Peg, who has lived all her life in Ire- land with her father. She is brought to the wealthy English Chichester home to be educated. Peg has been brought up in a very different environment than that of Ethel Chichester, the haughty daughter of Mrs. Chichester; consequently they do not get along very well together, but in the end they become the best of friends. After many amusing experiences. Peg finally falls in love with Jerry, an English nobleman. Because of the cruel treatment of the Chichester ' s, Peg has been planning to re- turn to her father in America, but now she decides to remain in England and marry Jerry. The part of " Peg " was taken by Marion Larson, who charmed the audience with her winning Irish Ways. Mrs. Wynne was the director. J inety-six The cast was as follows: Mrs. Chichester Footman, Jarvis Ethel, Mrs. Chichester ' s daughter Alaric, Mrs. Chichester ' s son Christian Brent . . . . P g Montgomery ' Haw es, solicitor Maid .... Jerry ..... Student Director Beth Boyden Lee Hardesty Betty Sander Paul Dubois Stanley Grandon Marion Larson Clifford Spoon EvANA Lee Bunstine Herbert Gramatky Virginia Dixon Tsjinety-ifven THE JUNIOR PLAY ON JANUARY 18, the Junior Class presented, as its annual play, " Penrod " , which was one of the best Junior plays, both financially and dramatically, that has ever been presented at Alhambra High. The plot centers around Penrod and Sam, the main comedy elements through- out the entire play. The villain, Hamelton Dade, tries to sell some fake stock to Pen- rod s father and to marry Penrod ' s older sister, Margaret. Penrod and Sam play de- tective and catch Dade. Margaret then accepts Bob Williams, Sam ' s older brother. The part of " Penrod " was cleverly portrayed by Ernest Pratt, who along with Sam, Ralph Hubbard, did splendid work. The director was Paul J. Ritter. The other comedy characters were Tim, Howard Allen, Delia, the cook, Barbara Doug- las, Herman and Verman, Charles Se Legue and Claude Asbury, and Jarge, Oliver Oberg. Others in the cast are: Mary Schofield, Helen Walker; Mr. Jones, Richard Mongomery; Bob Williams, Jim Smith; Mrs. Bassett, Evelyn Newton; Henry Schofield, Ed Nelson; Margaret Scho- field, Mary Breen; Herbert Hamilton Dade, Paul Da vies; Marjorie Jones, Evelyn Witt- mer; George Bassett, Jack Davies; Rev. Lester Kenosling, Robert Bryce; and Mr. Coombs, Jack Graves. Tsjinety-eight " MISS CHERRYBLOSSOM " THE annual opera, presented May 2 and 3, by the combined Boys ' and Girls ' Se- nior Glee Clubs, was an outstanding success of the year. The opera was so well managed and there was such good material with which to work that success was assured from the beginning. The opera was a charming Japanese musical comedy with proud, evil Japanese politicians, dainty little Geisha girls, and handsome young Americans complicating the plot. Much of its success was due to the splendid efforts of Miss Shropshire, Miss Walker, Mrs. Clements, Mrs. Beebe and Mary Elizabeth White, who was the accom- panist. The principal characters are as follows: Cherryblossom John Henry Smith Kol{emo Togo Henry Foster Jones Jessica Vanderpool Horace V orthington James Young Lucille M. nley Harold Woodhouse Cherrill H. nnon J. CK Herman John Cuddeback Alice Cr-awford Everett Evans Lemp Simonsen ? metv-nme MUSIC DEPARTMENT THE quotation, " Music Exalts Life " , seems to have proven itself true in A.H.S. this . year. The Music Department, under the direction of Miss Georgia E. Shrop- shire, has found the year 1928-29 to be very progressive, as more interest has been shown by the students than ever before. The enrollment in harmony, violin, piano, music appreciation. Boys ' and Girls ' Glee Clubs, sight singing, orchestra, band, wind instruments, and the Junior Glee Clubs has nearly doubled that of last year. There has also been formed a boys ' Junior Glee Club, which is something new in the history of the department. Programs were furnished for the Boys ' Federation, the Girls ' League, the G.A.A Convention, the School Custodian Convention, the Eastern Star, the Ramona Women ' s Club, the Garfield P.T.A., and the Red Cross. The Girls ' Senior Glee Club, of lifty members, directed by Mrs. Clements, en- tertained the Rotary, Kiwanis, and Exchange Clubs, the Girls ' Athletic Association One Hundred ■ " as.idciia Exchange Club. They also entertained at Commence- akespeare Festival. senior Glee Club, of forty-two members, directed by Mrs. Beebe, has entei il ied ' at the Elks and Lions Clubs, at the Boys " Federation meetings, and at asscBftWies. The largest work of both the Girls ' and Boys ' Senior Glee Clubs was the premutation of the annual opera. band, which is a regular occurance in our civic and school affairs, under the direction of Mr. Irving G. Ulmer, played at the Long Beach, Santa Ana, South Pasadena, and Compton fotball games, the Armistice Day Program and parade, the San Diego- Alhambra debate, the South Pasadena Exchange Program, and at the City Park for the opening of the Summer Playground work. The Senior Orchestra, directed by Mr. Ulmer, played for the matinee and eve- ning performanes of both Senior plays, the Los Angeles-Alhambra debate, and the Commencement exercises. One Hundred One SENIOR ORCHESTRA JUNIOR ORCHESTRA One Hundred Two T THE BAND HE Junior Orchestra, under the direction of Mrs. Clements played for the Junior Play, the Opera, and at assemblies. This year, small ensemble groups, both instrumental and vocal have been or- ganized, and have furnished programs for Job ' s Daughters, Eastern Star, Presbyterian Church, Monterey Park Community Church, Christian Church, Men ' s Brotherhood of the first M.. Church, Ramona Woman ' s Club, Alhambra Primary Teachers ' Club, and the Flower Show. One of the most interesting programs in Assembly this year was presented by the members of Miss Abbey ' s Harmony class. Miss Aurora Berg, contralto, sang a group of songs written by Mary Elizabth White, of the Harmony class. Mar ' Elizabeth White accompanied Miss Berg, and Jean Patterson played the cello obligate. One Hundred Three THE ART PAGEANT {trT- HE Quest of Imagination, " the all-student production was presented the eve- JL ning of the fourth annual art exhibit. The play was written, designed, cos- tumed, directed and produced by art students. It was entirely original in stage set ' ting and costumes, which were designed and made by students. The theme of the play, imagination, was carried out in a clever way. Wonder Why, a curious and inquisitive little girl goes in search of imagination. She visits the Moon, Mars and Venus, traveling about in her bubble boat. Her search was not in vain for she finally found the desired information. The principal characters arc as follows : Mother Ruth Tripp Father Shannon Baker Wonder Why Margaret Gross Chief Giant ARTHUR RUELAND Mara Wara Bird LuCY Davidge Lady of Venus K.atherine Lane Moon Dragon John Marlar Today Barbara Douglas Director . . Mary Gene Hart Faculty Advisor IRENE MacLean One Hundred Four " LIGHT AND SHADOW " THE Light and Shadow Club has enjoyed a large membership of both aetive and auditing members this year. Mr. Ritter has been an inspiring leader, while Miss MacLean and her stage crew have worked hard to make all productions a success. Many plays were given throughout the year for various occasions. Among these wera " Romance of a Busy Broker " , " The Enchanted Christmas Tree " , " Dulcy " , " Dregs " , and " Evening Dress Indispensible " , which was presented as an entertainment for the Alhamhra Women ' s Club. A Japanese Society from the Roosevelt High School put on a short Japanese play and a program of Japanese music. This year the Light and Shadow Club has added to its repertoire a new fea ' ture in the form of a vaudeville, consisting of many new and novel numbers. A Shakespearian Festival was presented on April the twelfth. Besides the con- test numbers, there were Shakespearian selections given in both period costumes and modem dress. The season ' s work closed with a Hi-Jinks Program, which consisted of two one- act plays, followed by dancing and cards. The officers for the year were : President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Geraldine Smith ' .■ CK Waddle Carol Holmes Rosamond Routt One Hundred Five " MOORISH FRESCOES " MOORISH Frescoes " was first issued in November, 1927, under the name, " Quarterly Magazine " . However, by the time the next number was pub- Hshed, a title suggesting Spain and the historic castle, " The Alhambra " , was found. This magazine, which is issued by the Advanced English Class of Alhambra High School, has had a beginning similar to that of " The Moor " , which has developed into a widely-read newspaper; so time only can tell what the future of " Moorish Frescoes " will be. This magazine offers an outlet for the creative efforts of all the students. Con- tributions are not limited to those enrolled in the English Department; therefore, a great deal of talent, which would otherwise remain undiscovered, is brought out through " Moorish Frescoes. " In it may be found many clever and original stories, poems, and articles. Each quarter the Advanced English Class edits this magazine, and all contribu- tions must be approved by this class before they are included in an issue. Many high schools have undertaken similar projects, but, under Mrs. Richardson ' s able supervision, Alhambra is one of the few that has been able to maintain a literary magazine; hence we are justly proud of " Moorish Frescoes. " One Hundred Six ?»W ' ,;r tAUJ»l ART CLUB THE past year has been a, m ' 3st successful one for the Art Club, which sponsored several interesting exhibits and held some very wonderful meetings. The commercial classes entered two poster contests, winning many prizes. The Art Department sent, to the Pacific Arts Convention in Los Angeles, an exhibit which brought commendation to the students and faculty. At one of the most interesting club meetings of the year, Mr. Allen Simmons, of the International Clay Product Co., in Alhambra, gave a very interesting ' talk on the clay industr ' . The lecture was of practical value, as a class in potter ' will be formed ne. t year. The largest and most interesting event of the past year was the Annual Art Ex- hibit and the art play, " The Quest for Imagination " , written by Margaret Gross and designed and produced by the art students. The officers of the club are as follows: President DOROTHY Cooper Vice-President RiLEY Thompson Secretary Beth Boyden Treasurer J. NE Thompson Advisor Mrs M.- rie V. Smith One Hundred Seven THE FORENSIC CLUB THE Forensic Cluh, an organization consisting of present and former members of the debating classes, is one that promotes social activities only. This is to relieve the members from the study of debate, which is of a somewhat confining nature. On Washington ' s Birthday, the club went on a hike to Mt. Wilson. Later in the season we had a debate with San Diego, after which, our annual reception and dance was held. It is needless to say that these social affairs tend to build up a stronger feeling of good-fellowship between the club members and to bring debating to its highest standard. Thus, since the club has such a foundation, we are looking forward to another successful organization in the year of 1930. Officers were elected at an early meeting and are as follows: President DoROTHY Heck Vice-President Bob North Social Committee Bob North John Cuddeb.ack One Hundred Eight ty i. LATIN CLUB FOR many years there has been an organization in A.H.S. known as the Latin Club. The club this year was sponsored by Miss Offlighter; it was largely through her efforts that the club was favored with many interesting and beneficial programs at the meetings. The meetings, held twice quarterly during the C.R. period, included several Latin plays and many enlightening report on Roman life and customs as well as the singing of Latm songs. The organization of the club is similar to the government of the Roman State, there being two Consuls, two Praetors, four Aediles, a Scriba, or secretary, and a Quaestor, who acts as treasurer. The club membership is drawn from the various Latin classes. The patricians are the upper classmen, while the lower classmen are the plebian officers. The discussion, taking place during the meetings, not only enlightens one on the traditions and customs of the Roman civilization, but al so makes the study of the Latin language more interesting and enjoyable. The officers for the year were: Bob North and Allen Ray AzoLA Phillilps .... Howard Allan .... Bernice Berkley and Phyllis Norton Terry Harmon and Cliff Farrell CofxsvXs S criba Aediles Aediles One Hundred " Hyne FRENCH CLUB THE past year has been a very successful one for the French Club. The club has met once every quarter this year. At each meeting we had a short business session which was followed by a program. Usually the program was given by some person who had been in France, and who was able to tell us interesting things of France and the French people. The program of the last meeting was given by the students themselves. They gave several French dialogues and some musical numbers. In the middle of the year we had a candy sale, from which we obtained enough money to cover our expenses for the year. As a fitting finale to the year ' s work, the officers, at the end of the year, staged a good ' time party for the entire club. We owe the success of the French Club this year co the splendid work of our two advisors. Miss Reese and Miss Offlighter. The officers for the past year were: President ..... Vice-President Secretary and Treasurer Chairrnan of Program Committee Lillian Penl.and Frank La Courreye Nora Jeanette Jones Phyllis Gillice One Hundred Ten SPANISH CLUB THE Spanish Club was organized in 1927 for the purpose of creating an interest in the Spanish language and in the Spanish-speaking countries. Membership in the club requires two years of recommended Spanish. This year there has been a membership of one hundred and twenty five. There have been only three meetings this year, the greatly decreased number be- ing due to the increasing student-body body activities held during the C.R. period These few meeetings, however, have been very enjoyable, consisting of interesting talks and pictures on Spain and the South American countries. In the early part of February ' we held a candy sale, and in May, the club went on a hike to Switner ' s Camp. In view of the greatly increasing commerce between the United States, Mexico and South America, the importance of fostering an interest in the Spanish language is apparent. We are hopeful that our club work, together with the correspondence carried on by many of our club members, will further this aim. President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Je. n Rich. rdson M. RY Breen Jack H.arrison Betty C. One Hundred Eleven SCHOLARSHIP SOCIETY THE Scholarship Society has had a very successful year both in upholding our motto, " Scholarship for Service " and in providing social events for the members. Believing scholarship to be beneficial both educationally and socially, we have es- tablished Junior Societies in the grammar schools to encourage membership in the high school chapter. During the firsC semester a hard-times party and a theater party were held. The second semester the local chapter held a weiner roast in Arroyo Seco and enjoyed their annual half day holiday at Balboa on May 17. On May 2 ' i, the Alhambra Society was host to the entire district at an all day outing at the beach. Richard Cole, of our own chapter, is president of this district. Officers of the first semester were: President .... Vice-President Secretary .... Treasurer .... Frank Pierson Robert Br yce Dorothy Heck Florence Norris Officers of the second semester were: President .... Vice-President Secretary .... Treasurer .... Paul Gentry Robert North Dorothy Heck Elizabeth Carrigan One Hundred Twelve HOUSEHOLD ECONOMICS CLUB rr HE Home Economics Club is proud of its activities and accomplishments this J- year. At the business meeting in October, officers were elected for the year, and an interesting talk on health, by Dr. Bertha McKaughn, of Hollywood, was given. The outstanding social feature of the year was a Christmas Tea, given by the twelfth year foods classes. The dining room was eifectively decorated in the Christ- mas theme. Delicious sandwiches, sweets, and punch were served at individual tables. The annual fashion show, given, for mothers and friends, by the clothing classes, took place June the sixth, the girls displaying in a clever and attractive manner a variety of garments made during the year. The club also did social-service work by making clothing for children of needy families, the money for the work being obtained from club dues and the sale of fruit cakes during the holidays. In 1929 the club had as its officers: President Vice-President Secretary .... Treasurer . . . . Fr- nces Dobrielet Dorothy Vasseur . Lillian Dow Marjorie McAl ' Lay One Hundred Thirteen I BIG A " CLUB THE Big " A " " Club of Alhambra High School has been organized for a number of years. It is an organization which is composed of those boys who have earned letters in all the major sports, which are: football, basketball, baseball, track and tennis. The yell leaders are also included in the list of members. This year the club las been ciunparatively inactive. Very few YV eefciiKs have b en held activitie gs have bden held jthis year, and the club has had practically no est will be shown and that a more successful One Hundred Fourteen G.A.A. T HE Girls ' Athletic Association includes all girls who have earned fifty or more -»- points in some sport. The Algia is the leading organization in the G.A.A., and its membership consists of girls who have earned a thousand or more points. The officers of the Algia automatically become the officers of the G.A.A. The purpose of the Algia is to promote a spirit of democracy, good sportsmanship, cooperation, and a high physical efficiency by fostering an interest in gymnastic and athletic ability. The Minor A Club is composed of all those who have earned five hundred points. As the president of the Algia is the head of all athletic clubs, the Minor A has no officers except a chairman. Points can be earned in play days and natural dancing, as well as in the regular sports. In addition to sports, the Algia Club also has many social functions during the year. The officers are: President Vice-President Secretary and Treasurer Dorothy Wells El.mne estell.a p.age One Hundred Fifteen HI ' Y CLUB THE, Hi-Y Club is composed of those boys who are the leaders of the school and who are upholding the highest ideals of manhood. The purpose of the organization is to create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community, the highest standards of Christian Character. The quota for membership is thirty. New members are admitted four times a year. The candidates for membership are invited to attend a meeting so that the members may become acquainted with them, and then they are voted upon. If the prospective member receives an unanimous vote in his favor, he is admitted as a mem- ber. During the past two semesters, the social activities of the Hi-Y Club have been very successful. Officers are: President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Charles Field Bill Horn DuANE Smith Philip Lynn One Hundred Sixteen LOS ALCADES ' ' T ' HE Los Alcaldes Club has been organized for two years, and although it is a ■ ■ comparatively new club in the school, much interest has been shown in its ac- tivities. The members are chosen from vanous branches, being chiefly student body of- ficers, team captains, class presidents, and representative students throughout the school deserving recognition for services they have rendered. One of the main purposes of the Los Alcaldes is to cooperate with the faculty in every way possible for the upholding of the Alhambra High School standards. In addition to these willing duties, many social functions are enjoyed by the Ln Alcaldes and their friends. Our success has been greatly due to the able assistance of our two advisors, Mr Bettinger and Mr. St(xldard, to vi. ' hom we are deeply indebted. Officers for the year were: First Semester Bob Bowers John Seixes Ted N.atcher Ray Dodd OFFICERS President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Second Semester Bob Rowley Dick Coar Ted Natch er Oliver Flood One Hundred Seventeen LONGFELLOW S CLUB THE school year of 1929 marks the second successful year for the Longfellow ' s Club in Alhambra High. This club is very exclusive, for it is made up only of the students who have attained the height of six feet. The Longfellows were enabled to do some real worth-while work for A.H.S. when they were appointed official student firemen. With the help of Mr. Moyse, the firedrills were more efficiently executed, and the equipment was kept in order. The club members wish to express their sincere appreciation and thanks to Mr. Olson for the help that he has given them as faculty advisor. The officers for the past year were: President .... Vice-President Secretary . . . . Treasurer .... Thorw. ld Fr.andsen Gr.ant Olson Lee Hardesty Bill Bronn One Hundred Eighteen wMm COMMERCIAL CLUB THE object of the Commercial Club is to help those students who are failing in commercial subjects to raise the standard of their work. In this way, the cluo has averted many failures. This year, owing to the lack of opportunities to assemble, the work of the club has not progressed very rapidly. Miss Barber, the organi-er of the club, left last year, and her work was taken over by Mrs. Mason, head of the Commercial Department. It is the sincere wish of the outgoing officers that the work of the Commercial Club will be carried on in a more successful manner next year, as it is a very worth- while institution and should be given a prominent place in the activities of the sch(X)l. Officers are: President Vke-President Secretary Treasurer Clara Wolf Fern Weisel ViRuiNMA Howard Marion Steffes Oyie Hundred Tsjineteen SCHOOL BANK THERE is one department in the high school of which not much is heard. This is the school bank. From 7:S0 A.M., to 5:30 P.M., there is usually someone in the bank taking care of the financial interests of the school. All together, there are sixteen students who, at various hours of the day, are working in the bank. These students keep the books for the school cafeteria, take carg of the financial part of all school activities, keep separate accounts of all the different clubs and classes of the school, see that no organization overdraws its budget, keep the books for the Student Body Store, and supervise the counting of ballots of all school elections. Of course the students could not do all this without a competent instructor. Mr. Potter is the teacher in the bank, and he is also the Faculty Financial Advisor for all school affairs. He deserves a great deal of credit, as he is always on the job, always cheerful, and always willing to give help to those who need it. The Commissioner of Finance has his office in the school bank. This year the Commissioners have been Raymond Dodd and Oliver Flood. The school bank is of real value to the students as it gives them practical business experience. Through its cooperation, all school business affairs are run on an efficient basis. Oliver Flood, Commissioner of Finance. One Hundred Twenty THE STUDENT BODY STORE THE Student) Body Store, located in the West Wing, is the business center of Al- hambra High. It is maintained by the school for the convenience of the students, the profits being used for school activities. The store carries a complete line of school supplies. It is an up-to-date student-managed enterprise under the direction of Mr. Heyl, the faculty advisor. The clerks receive a monthly compensation, and it is bc- heved that this gives them more of a feeling of responsibility toward their work. The clerks for this year were: Harold Clark, Manager Rex Welch Bill Davis CONLEY SiPPEL Clifford Lang Ben Laughton Ch. rles Whitam Dick Montgomery Victor Carroll John Dillon Albert Hanks Gordon Kelley One Hundred Twenty-one LOST AND FOUND A NUMBER of years ago a very useful Department, whieh is located in the basement of the East Wing, was started. This department was hoped to be of some aid to students who had misplaced their possessions. We have tried, during the past year, to keep the Lost and Found department as neat and orderly as possible. However, co-operation is needed from the student body. Every day students come to inquire for articles they have lost but the articles have not been turned in. . We would earnestly like to have every person who finds any articles to turn them m to the Lost and Found. The workers are: 5th period: Alvin Cantrill, Stan- ley Baird; 6th period, Lemp Simonson; 7th period, Herbert Gramatky, John Sey- mour. This year ' s system is quite a bit different from that used last year. It is con- ducted along the line of the Pacific Electric ' s Lost and Found department, that of putting a numbered tag on every article. This has proven a great aid to the depart- ment in increasing its efficiency. One Hundred Twenty-two STAGE CREW THE Stage Mechanics Class of Alhambra High is more advanced educationally than it is in most schools. Here, every membeij is given a chance to manage a show, and he also has his chance at every other duty. Being very inexperienced at the beginning of the year, we are given about six weeks of drill work on stage properties and equipment, and, by the time the Senior Play IS ready to be given, we are quite ready to handle it. As the year goes on our work progresses and we take up the making of stage scenery ' , which is exhibited in the Art Show. The Stage Mechanics Course of Alhambra High is an elective for upper class- men only. There were thirteen members on the Stage Crw this yar, and they are as fol- lows: Lloyd Langley, Arthur Reuland, Robert Barton, Richard Ashby, Reul Adams, Kenneth Dinwiddic, Harris Corson, Jack Conger, Allen Brown, Conley Sippel, Oliver Oberg, James Woods, and Bud Woodward. One Hundred Twent -three - . r»mf CARTOON CLUB W JF THE Cartoon Club was organized last year. It has been rapidly advancing and big things are expected of it in the future. One of its many accomplishments was to assist striving young cartoonists to learn the fundamentals of modern cartooning. The club, with the wonderful help of Mr. Bonar, the advisor, has criticized and corrected many little flaws in the cartoons of other memebrs of the club. The club a3 a whole is one of the best in the school. The club members are a fine bunch of fellows and dandy sports. They have helped each other in many difficulties that occur in car- tooning. The Club wishes to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Bonar for his splendid work as advisor. It was Mr. Bonar who made it possible ta have the most noted ar- tists come and speak to us. Mr. Bonar spent much of his very valuable time with the club and we are very grateful. Mr. Bonar gave each member much constructive criticism. One Hundred Twenty-fonr THE JUNIOR EXCHANGE CLUB THE Junior Exchange Club was organized for the first time at Alhamhra High School in February of this year. May other schools in Southern California have instituted similar clubs, and we are glad to have one in our midst. The Junior Exchange is affiliated with the local Senior Exchange club, but at yet is not a national organisation. The members of the club are chosen as representative of the various sports and other high school organizations. Because it was so recently organized the boys did not have much opportunity to be of service in school affairs. Next year, however, the hope to take an active part in the student body.

It was started in 1924, and each Christmas we have had some plan by which we all offer our individual gifts to help those who are less fortunate. It is not merely a method by which we can express our Christmas spirit, but through this plan many worthy people are helped yearly. Hundreds of cans of fruit and vegetables, barrels of potatoes and large bundles of clothes are collected. The Girls ' League, under the direction of Miss Blount and the Boys ' Federation, under the direction of Mr. Werre, see that these supplies get to the people most needy and most worthy to receive them. Some parents and townspeople never think of missing the Christmas Program. To us all it is a wonderful demonstration of the Christmas spirit. No one gives big gifts. Groups never go together vieing with each other to see how much they can give. Individual gifts, which do the giver as much good as the recipient, and work no hardship on anyone, are pleaced about the tree. We all hope that Alhambra High School never gives up this helpful, worthy, pleasant tradition. One Hundred Twenty-six HIGH SCHOOL PARENT TEACHER ' S ASSOCIATION THE object ot the Hiyh Schoul Parent Teacher Association is to secure the co-op- eration ot the parents and teachers tor the promotion of the welfare of the high school students. Since its organization a few years ago, our association has functioned through the different departments toward this end. We have been particularly for- tunate in securing as our leaders, women, outstanding in the community for their high ideals, unselfish devotion to welfare work, and executive ability. To such women as Mrs. Herbert Johnson, Mrs. Edward Harkness, Mrs. Harry Eckert, Mrs. H. C. Baldwin, Mrs. E. C. Shearer, Mrs. A. A. Wat.son, and Mrs. Albert Euphrat, we pay tribute. It seems that we have in reality formed a connecting link between the home and school, quietly co-operating with teachers and student body, by furnishing chaperones for all social activities; lending a helping hand during rehearsals of class plays and operettas, each year achieving and building a little better than the one previous. During Mrs. Baldwin ' s administration her dream of establishing a scholarship aid became a reality with Mrs. Watson as first scholarship chairman. Thus we inaugu- rated the first annual paper drive, the proceeds of which have been used each year for that purpose only. This brings us up to this year ' s administration with Mrs. Harvey L. Eby at the helm. With her background as a teacher, as well as a parent, Mrs. Eby ' s sympathetic understanding and ability to master each situation has made her services of inestimable value. This year it is indeed gratifying to feel that not only have we been able to give to both graduating classes the two hundred dollar scholarship and high grade awards, but have established an emergency fund for Miss Blount and Mr. Werre, that throughout the year they could draw upon as the need presented itself. As a fitting tribute to this work, the sum of twenty five dollars was given by a grateful scholarship student, and is to be used as a nucleus for a student loan fund. We are hoping to see this fund grow by leaps and bounds, that more assistance may be given. Miss Mary Patten, President of the Girls " League, has been very helpful as the student body representative on our executive board, throughout the year. Mrs. M. E. Carroll One Hundred Twenty-seven S P O RTS J YELL LEADERS MUCH of the success of the teams is due to the spirit of the rooters, who are led hy the yell leaders. The whole-hearted support of the Student Body at the games made it possible for the yell leaders to accomplish what they did. Jack Waddle and Bill Davis had wonderful support from the students during the football season. They worked very hard and deserve much credit. The yell leaders for the second semester were Herbert Gramatky and Bob Pick- ering. Herbert Gramatky was an experienced yell leader, having been one last year. Bob Pickering, though inexperienced, has done fairly well and has had good support from the student body. Jack Waddle and Bill Davis will be back next year and should have a great deal of success.

RICHARD COAR, Right End, was a very valuable player on the Moor eleven. Unfortunately, injuries somewhat delayed his progress. He is a two-year letterman and has another year yer to play. CURLEY GR.AH. M, Capt. CAPTAIN CURLY GRAHAM, Right Tackle, was the best tackle in the league. Curly was the one who, in last year " s game with South Pasadena, made the winning score which broke tradition and spelled defeat for South Pasadena " s many year ' s victories. This was his third and last year on the varsity. BILL NEAGLE, Full Back, was a real threat tn the backtield anc ' i was noted for his worth as a line plunger this season. He tackles hard, and he is accurate in his long passes. He is a one-year letterman aand has another year left for football. DON FARR, Right Half Back, was a great defensive player and ball carrier. He carried reverses exceptionally well, and he was very fast. He was always in the game and fought so hard that most opponents feared to fall before him. Don is a two-year letterman; he will not be back next year. (CAPT. ELECT) BILL BROSSEAU, Left Half Back, was a good defense player and one of the hardest hitting halves in the league. He was the man who opened the holes for most of the touch downs. Bill is a two- year letterman. Bill Br()sse.- lu.

This was his last year. VICTOR CARROL, Center, was a hard man to move and a much harder man to block. The secondary de- fense tried to evade him as Carrol hit hard. Vic played his first and last year this season. RAY MELSHEIMER, Left Guard, was a very fast charger. He was one of the best linemen on the Varsity Eleven. He is a two-year letterman and played his last football this year. LYLE HAWTHORNE, Left Tackle, was a hard player to stop. Hawthorne was ill most of the season with injuries but played brilliant games when he was able to be on the field. He is a two-year letterman, and this was his last year. One Hundred Thirty-two t 7 Harry Rlgh " Vic " Carrol " Orv ' Mohler Don Farr Dick Rippey One Hundred Thirty ' three JOHNNY SEIXAS, Left End, was one of the smartest and consistent players on the Varsity Eleven. He paved the way for many of the team ' s touchdowns. He set a record for the longest run — 97 yards — at Moor ' s field in the game against Santa Ana. This was Johnny ' s last year; he was a two-year letterman. SECOND-STRING NORMAN MOHLER, Quarter Back, was of material assistance to the championship team this season. Although small in sise, he played like a big man, his only drawback being lack of experience. Norman is a one-year man, and this was his last year. " INKY " WOTKYNS, Full Back, played enough halves on the Varsity this year to make his letter. He was the only player who came up from the 1927 Clas C Team to play on the Varsity.

This was his last year. FRED CLARK, Left Half Back, was unfortunate in that he was shifted to a different position in nearly every game. However, he always filled his new assignment like a veteran and was a great help to the Varsity. Fred will not be back next year as this was his second and last year.

Although this was his first and last year of football, he was feared as much as any veteran. BUD MERRIAM, Left End, was a hard player with good spirit. Lack of experience did not delay his pro gress. He has another year yet to play and should develop into a brilliant player next season. SEASON ' S SCORES For the first time in the history of Alhambra High School, the football team won a championship. Even in the old league, Alhambra had never won a championship, but this year, due mostly to the splendid coaching of Coach Hobbs, Alhambra won the Football Championship of the Coast League. The team went through the entire season without losing a single game. Without a doubt, the most brilliant and most valuable player on the entire team was Orville Mohler, the most sensational prep player in Southern California. Orv made on the average of six touchdowns in each game; but he could not have made such sensational scores had it not been for the wonderful interferences which the other players gave him.

Although not always winners, they always put up a hard fight. This year ' s " 130 " team, like that of last year lacked experienced " B " material but received some of the 192S class " C " men. Tlie team was ably coached by Coach Hess. During the league games Albert Stastney and Hurbert Smith acted as Captains, and they handled their positions very well. After the season was over and the standings were averaged the Moors were in third place. Special mention should be given to Albert Stastney who was awarded the silver fcxitball, given by Alfred Wotkyns, for being the most valuable player on the class " B " Team.

One Hundred Forty-three V Tl CLASS C FOOTBALL r jui , l e THE Class C Team was coached hy Newton Miller, who was also the coach for last year ' s team and who is therefore quite experienced in handling the 110 pound men. Considering that all hut two men were new and unexperienced, the team did fairly well this year. The primary purpose of the Class C Team is to develop the Freshmen into ex- perienced football players so that later they may be used on the Class B and Class A teams. Although the little Moors did not fare so well with the more experienced league teams, they defeated El Monte 18 to and Monrovia 12 to in practice games. The team was captained by the only returning lettermen — Howard Jackson and Jack Harrison. The football fans were always provided with hard ' fought battles, but the breaks of the game seemed to favor the Moor ' s opponents. Special mention is to be given to Ed Westall, who was awarded the silver foot ' ball for being the most valuable player on the 110 team. This trophy was awarded by Alfred Wotkyns. The Moors scored only once, and that was in the game against South Pasadena.

This pessimistic out- look seemed well-founded at first sight, for a superficial survey of the facts showed that but two letter men were returning from last year; and that we had a hard schedule, and, incidentally, an untried coach. Such facts seemed overwhelmingly, but the Moors, after a bad start at the beginning of the season, came through holding third place in the Coast League. SAN DIEGO 26; A.H.S. 12 Coach Hess ' basketeers were hosts to the San Diego ball tossers for the first league game for both teams. The San Diego aggregation out-played the Moors and showed superior team work. The Moors put up a hard fight but could not overcome the lead of the Hilltoppers. The final whistle blew with the score 26 to 12 in favor of San Diego. WHITTIER 30; A.H.S. 26 The following week the Moors met the Whittier Poets for their second encounter One Hundred Forty-six Ml tlic league. The game was very fast, and when the finel ,t, ' uii went off, the seore was tied. It was neeessary til phiy two extra five minute periods before one of the teams seored. The Mcxirs showed much improvement in this game. Flood starred at forward, and Carroll and Captain Scixas starred at the guard positions. A.H.S. 16; LONG BEACH 27 The next week, thi; Moors entrained for the strong- hold ot the Jack-Rahhits. The Long Beach team played up to its championship form but had quite a hard time beating the Moors, who put up a stiff but losing fight. The Moors at this time seemed to be improving their teamwork, but their basket shooting was rather weak. Long Beach won the games by a score of 27 to 16. John Seix.-ns, Capt. A.H.S. 27; PASADENA 13 The week following the game with Long Beach, the Moors entertained the Pasa- dena Bulldogs at the A.A.C. Gym. Pasadena was slated to win this game, but after it was all over, they thought different. After losing the first three games, the Moors were out to win and they accomplished this by defeating Pasadena by the score of 27 to 13. This game marked the turning point of the Moors gradual descent into the „ cellar position. The team showed marked improvement l " mBA ' " teamwork and basket shooting, and the prospects for winning the following games brightened up considerably. This was Carroll ' s last game for he was a nine semester man. A.H.S. 26; GLENDALE 13 The next wek the Moors met the Glendale Dyna- miters at the A.A.C. gym. In this game the entire Moor team staged its best bit of team work this season. Sonny Farrel took the place of Vic Carrol and played a fast Bob Rowley, Capt.-elect defensive game at standing guard. Merriam and Flood at One Hundred Fort -seven forwrds and Rowley at center did some excellent shooting, while Captain Seixas and Farrel kept the Dynamiters from scoring. A.H.S. 31; SANTA ANA 21 The Moors traveled to Santa Ana for their next game, and defeated the Saints by the score of 3 1 to 2 1 . This game was one of the roughest and hardest fought games that the Moors had had so far during the season. A.H.S. 21; SOUTH PASADENA 18 Fo rthe twelfth time in thirteen years, the Alhambra Moors defeated the South Pasadena Tigers. The game was hotly contested up to the last minute of play, and the Tigers put up their usual do or die struggle but itw as to no avail. The players that started this game played the entire encounter; they were Mer- riam and Flood, forwards; Rowley, center; and Captain Sixas and Farrell, guards. Hess ' team started out in a big way in the first quarter by scoring seven points to South Pasadena ' s three. However, the Moor Varsity was sadly out-pointed in the second period, and the half ended with the score 11 to 9 in favor of the Tigers. The third quarter was the real thriller, Merriam sinking two foul shots which tied the score. South Pasadena again took the lead, but Flood scored twice, and the Moors One Hundred Forty-eight then led to the lmkJ iit the ;inie. There was plenty ot riviilry shown by both team? but they lioth showed the best ot spirit and sportsmanship. Captain Seixas and Vietor Carrol held down the _i;uard positions and played steady, fast and hard tjames throughout the season. Oily Flood, who played left for- ward, was the high point man on the team. Bud Merriam, right forward, teamed up with Flood when it eame to passing and shooting. Bob Rowley, Captain-Eleet, played forward at the beginning of the season and then played center later. He played a flashy game at both these positions. Paul Smyser and Lefty Horst played steady and hard games at the forward positions and helped the team when it was in a diffi- cult situation. Art Boyd and Lee Hardesty played snappy games at center, and Rex Walsh and Sonny Farrell played hard and fast games in the guard positions. Next yeai the team will be lead by Bob Rowley, with Merriam, Welch, Farrell, and Boyd supporting him as lettermen. There will be a host of other good players up from the Class B and C Teams, and, with Coach Hess again supervising, the Moors chances for the 29-30 season are veiy bright. Coach Hess descries a lot of credit for the way the team functioned. - One Hundred Forty-nine n Alhambra Alhambra Alhambra Alhambra Alhambra Alhambra Alhambra LIGHTWEIGHT BASKETBALL Season ' s Scores 17 San Diego 54 . . . 6 Whittier 30 15 Long Beach 17 . . 10 Pasadena 22 . . . 19 Glendale 30 ... 8 Santa Ana 28 . . . 13 South Pasadena 14 Total 88 195 One Hundred Fifty CLASS B BASKETBALL THIS year the Class B Basketball Team had an unlucky season and lost every ilAmc in the Coast League schedule. Very tew turned out for the team, and, consequently there was not much material with which to work. Coach Hobbs was un- able to start practice rii, ' ht away because the ijym facilities were all taken up at the time. The li,t;htwei;j;hts only had about one-half to three-quarters of an hour to practice and therefore the team did not have the same opportunity to acquire team- work. Coach Hobbs is to be congratulated for what the team did accomplish. Even though the light-weights did not have a very successful season, the boys who played on the team should prove valuable material for next year ' s varsity quin- tette. The members of the team played a fast game throughout the year but the lack of material greatly handicapped them. This year ' s lettermen were : Don Farr, Captain and three year man, Winkler, Discr ow, MacClatchy, Grandon, Erv, ' ine, and Weisman. One Hundred Fifty-one no BASKETBALL THE Class C Basketball team played a wonderful brand of basketball this year and won second place in the Coast League. All the games were close and highly exciting and were thoroughly enjoyed by those who attended them. Harvey Wellington and Ted Zundel, the two forwards, worked very well with each other and earned many points for the team. The guard positions were held by Marrison and Jacks. Thse two players broke up the opponents offense before it could get started. The center position was held by Rod Cameron and R. Butterfield. Coach Fryer, with the assistance of Victor Carroll, had a hard task in developing the team, but by the time they started their series of games in the Coast League, they played up to true Alhambra form. The other players on the team were: Smith, Correll, Hallock, Konley, and Well- ington, who was the captain. One Hundred Fifty-two MUCH to (Hir gratiticUion, the Class C haskcthall team this year aroused more interest than usual. The Pewee squad is a valuable asset to the athletic de- partment because it furnishes material with which to build up both the Class B and the Varsity.

There are only four returning lettermen- from last year ' s team, but with the splendid coaching of Coach Hobbs, the team is perfectly moulded from catcher to center field. The Moors started off tha season by playing several practice games with various schools such as El Monte, Covina, Monrovia, Lincoln, and Franklin. The games with all these schools were about evenly divided, the Moors winning about half of the games. The Moors were hosts to the pennant winners of last year, San Diego, for their first game in the Coast League. This year, San Diego is supposed to have as good a team at it had last year and is trying hard to equal last year ' s record and win another championship. The game started, and Alhambra ' s prospects didn ' t look very bright for San Diego made five runs in the first inning of the game and practically put the game on ice. The Moors were not able to keep up the pace that San Diego set, and after the game was over, the score was San Diego 8; Alhambra 0. The following week the Moors traveled to Long Beach. Long Beach had won One Hundred Fifty-four m J its first game of the season by a large score, and the fan? expected this game to be a walk away for the Jackra ' " - bits. Lefty Horst pitched the whole game and showed wonderful control throughout. He kept the hits of Long Beach well -scattered and held them to no runs. The AI- hainhra players seemed to have their eyes on the ball, for besides collecting a nunihci ot hits ott Long Beach ' s sup- posedly highly touted pitcher they gathered up five runs from him. Jack Rugh, Sherwood Viel, Lefty Horst, and Johnny Seixas accounted for most of the hits in the game. Norman Mohler and Bud Merriam both played wonder- hil games in the outfield, catching many impossible flies. The next week the Moors played Whittier, the last game in which A.H.S. will ever compete with them, be- cause they are being dropped from the Coast League next year. Jack Rugii, Capt. The Moors defeated Whittier by the score of 8 to 3. The game was very ex- citing throughout, and Whittier played hard all the time but could not fathom Letty Horst ' s way of putting it over. Jack Rugh starred in this game, playing a cool and very heady game. Merriam and Jackson did some pretty work at left field and third base respectively. Bud Wood- ard played a nice game at second while David Knapp played a good game at short- stop. The week following the Whittier game, the Moors entertained the Pasadena Bulldogs at Moors Field. The Moors won by a score of 5 to .i. Pasadena ' s last two runs were made by an unlucky error, on the part of the Moors, in the eighth inning. The team showed wonderful ability in fielding and batting. They also showed great improvement over their preceding games. Knapp starred at batting while Vie! One Hundred Fifty five starred on the infield. Rugh, Merriam, Jackson, and Woodard played a heady game throughout. The team this year was composed of four lettermen who returned from last . year. These lettermen were: Jack Rugh, Captain, Sherwood Viel, David Knapp, and Bud Merriam. The remainder of the squad was composed of Bud Woodard, second base; How- ard Jackson, third base; John Seixas, short stop; Norman Mohler, center field; and Richard Gushing, right field. The pitching staff was led by Lefty Horst, who was followed by Nix, Anslinger, Millard, and Albers. Coach Hobbs took ove r Coach Rankers job this year and kept up the good work that Coach Ranker had been doing for the past number of years. Coach Hobbs has played the game a great deal and knows baseball from A to Z. One Hundred Fifty-six BASEBALL This year ' s manager was Robert Krag. Krag was a valuable asset to the team, and the players all enjoyed and appreciated his good fellowship and hard work. The scores were as follows: Alhambra .... San Diego Alhambra .... 5 Long Beach Alhambra .... 8 Whittier Alhambra .... 5 Pasadena Total . 18 8 14 One Hundred Fi tv-seven VARSITY TRACK ALHAMBRA had a fairly successful season in Track this year. We won four meets and lost three, which is not bad when one considers that there were only ■ three lettermen on the team. The year started with Inter-Class Track. The Seniors and the Juniors had a close race, but the latter could not equal the speed of the fast Seniors. The next contest was a triangular one with Oxy Frosh and Roosevelt High School. The team members showed very good form in this meet, winning very easily. Monrovia came over to Alhambra only to go back smarting under a terrible de- feat. Alhambra again finished far in the lead. The team, after so many victories, then had an upset. South P asadena visited us and went home victorious, winning by nine points. We fought hard but the Tigers had plenty of class and consequently defeated us. The Moors next defeated Whittier and Covina and then lost to Pasadena. Coach Turley is to be remembered for his splendid efforts. Captain Brest and Managers Sandlands and Stever should also be given much credit for their splendid cooperation. One Hundred Fifty-eight _Ynv V CLASS C TRACK WITH the great boosting given by Miss Walker, the Class " C " track team had a splendid showing. Altogether the team had about twenty members and started the season off with great success. The Coast League class " C " teams were divided into two divisions, Alhamhra competing with Whittier, Pasadena, and South Pasadena. Our team won each of these meets by a great majority, thus winning the championship for our division. After this series of meets was over, Alhamhra qualified for the Coast League finals, and again the strong determination of each member helped to overcome such competition with which they were opposed. Our boys, however, won second place in the Cost League finals. Toward the latter part of April, six qualified members of the team entered in the Southern California meet. Here the competition was too great, and only one of our boys placed. A great deal of credit should be given to Roy Johnston, who was the star man on the team. Despite the great competition against him, he took second place in the Southern California finals for the broad jump, with the record leap of nineteen feet three inches. One Hundred Fifty-nine CROSSCOUNTRY THE Alhambra Cross Country Team finished a successful season by placing seventh in the Sputhern California Championship Meet. This is Alhambra ' s third con- secutive seventh place in this meet. ■« r—Thejteaan, under the able leadership of Captain Merton Hart, swamped the Cal- Tech Frosh by a score of 71 to 20. Glendale was also defeated in a close meet. The spirit shown in conquering Pasadena High and Pasadena Junior College, after losing the first two places shows the real fighting spirit of the team. Alhambra met the Cal-Tec Varsity and the U.C.L.A. Varsity during the year but did not place higher than second in either meet. Coach Turley has given Alhambra High School a fine team. The lettermen this year were: Captain Mert Hart Holmes Dollarhide Daniel Dominguez Tex Templeton Tyrus Compte Glen Woosley Ben Laughton Lloyd Ritter Manager Kenneth Stever One Hundred Sixty r HE Alhambra Gym Club was first organized in 1924 by Coach " Jlo " Wilson. In J- 1925 he was able to interest the Board of Education in this agreed to spend sufficient money to insure its advancement. The first year was hard because the boys were just starting and did not know how to perform. Coach Wilson worked faithfully with the ])6ys and made our first year a complete success. Every year the Gym Club has given a circus for the entertainment of the students and towns-people. During the past year, the biggest circus and most successful from a financial standpoint, that has ever been presented at A.H.S., under the direction of Coach Lee Turley. Coach Turley has introduced a new field of activity known as the Junior Gym Club, which is of great aid in developing and instructing the new boys before they become members of the Varsity Team. In the past year we have been fairly successful in our interscholastic meets. If Coach Lee Turley is again our instructor, we have high hopes of much greater achieve ments next year. The manager for both semesters was Shannon Baker. The captains were: Charles Hall, first semester, and Geary Searl, second semester.

The team is composed of Manual Cabral, captain and number one man. Dean Morrison, number two, DeWalter Chapman, number three, Fred Morales, number four, and Rod Cameron, number five. Morrison and Chapman are the only lettermen returning from last year ' s team. Cabral is a sensational play- er, making par and below par most of the time. Next year ' s prospects are very bright for this brilliant player, as well as for the team as a whole. Morales and Cameron are only Freshmen, while Morrison is a Junior. The team is on its way to the Coast League championship if it defeats Glendale this year. The boys are ably managed by Fred Clark, who was a letterman last year. Coach Fryer takes a lot of interest in his team, and if the members follow his instruc- tions, they will come out on top.

This season they were undeafeated in the Coast League matches, winning the Coast League Championship. The most crucial match of the circuit was that with the Pasadena Bulldogs, and very keen competition was shown. The final score stood 9 to 8 in favor of Alhamhra We are justly proud of the team which brought us the 1929 Coast League pennant in tennis. The team is composed of Captain Braxton Klutz, Charles Battele, Boh Rowley, Rex Welch, George Michael, Claude Ashur ' , Boyd Georgi, and Oliver Flood. The players are coached hy Coach R. E. Home. Coach Home had practice three afternoons a week, and he developed the team in practice matches with the U.C.L.A. Frosh, Occidental, Harvard Military ' Academy, Santa Monica, Monrovia, Huntington Park, Fullerton, and El Monte. The scores of the League matches stand as follows: San Diego, forfeit; Long Beach 17 to 0. Whittier 17 to 0; Pasadena 9 to 8. Bob Rowley and Chick Battelle won cups in the interscholastic tournament at Ojai. Ability, speed, accuracy, and masterful strokes, as well as good team work were the accomplishments displayed by the Moor racketeers this year. One Hundred Sixty-three (. U - w - SWIMMING THE swimming team, under the able leadership of coach Lee Turley, started the season this year fairly well by winning their first meet from Whittier High School. However, in the other meets, with the exception of South Pasadena, they were not so successful. This was due to the fact that the Alhambra team only had a chance to practice twice a week, while all the other teams had swimming tanks at the school and could practice daily. The team and Coach Turley wish to thank the Alhambra Athletic Club for the use of their plunge, as otherwise it would not hjye- ' been possible to have had a swimming team this year. Hubert Smith Jack Blake Clyde Ford Geary Searle Al Hallet Rene Sibold The members of the team Ross Bumstead Kenneth Dinwiddie Donald Jannecke George Moyen Eddy Nelson Allen Ray One Hundred Sixty-four WATER POLO THIS year a new minor sport was instituted at A.H.S. This sport, Water Polo, has been played several years in various Southern California high schools. How- ever, it had never been initiated at Alhambra until, this year, at the request of a group of boys. Coach Turley agreed to act as our instructor. The Pasadena Y.M.C.A. plunge was obtained for one night a week. Our first game was with Hollywood at the Hollywood Athletic Club. The fol- lowing week we played Fullerton in their pool. Our last game was with Los Angeles High. Next year water polo will meet with more success, we hope. The members of the team were: George Moyen Jack Blake Jack Casstevens Teddy Smith Earl Nix Rene Sibold Edward Hallet Allen Ray (Captain) Albert Stastny Talbot Lionberger Edgar Craven Kenneth Dinwiddie Allen Ray Ross Bumstead John Winterbottom One Hundred Sixty-five FENCING FENCING is a new sport in Alhamhra High School having been introduced by coach Turley, whose long record as a fencer, from his days in France, enabled him to turn out a creditable team in a very short time. The team is very much indebted to Mr. Hilton, who furnished the first equip- ment; and to Dr. Comeau, one time Olympic champion, for instruction. The teams that Alhambra have competed with this season are: Pasadena Jun- iors, All Nations Boys ' Club, Los Angeles Athletic Club Juniors and a Fencing Club from Manual Arts High School. Those competing for Alhambra were: Julian Ebat Burton Stewart David Rice Donald Fowle John DeLand Robert DeLand (Manager) One Hundred Sixty-six 4 WRES ' nJNG THE Moor wrestlers this year placed scond in the Coast League. The Coast League has a regular league in wrestling, meeting the various schools on fixed dates. The student body has shown a great deal of interest in this new sport, and at every school in the League the sport secured the enthusiasm of the students. Coach Hess has done much for promoting interest in wrestling. Alhamhra won five of the matches played. At the Southern California Interscholastic meet, the Alhamhra wrestlers placed third. This meet included all the schools in South- em California. The team this year was composed of: 112 lbs., Ed Westall, Carl Conley, and William Murphy; 118 lbs., Lewis Luther, and David Estin; 125 lbs., George Koba; I. lbs., " Sailor " Simson, Harold Conley, and Albert Statsney; 14 lbs., Teddy Don- danville; 158 lbs., Milton Snipper, Lamar Beal, and Robert Weir. One Hundred Sixty-seven LEADERSHIP THE Leadership Class is a training class for picked girls who have proven their excellence in gym work and who have shown a desire to go on, with gymnasium teaching. This class, started by Mrs. Crosswhite, has been going on for several semesters. This semester was spent in learning clogging and tumbling. Many interest- ing character cloggings have been learned by the class and four leadership girls en- tered the clogging contest held at Whittier on Playday. Tumbling has been very interesting work. The girls put on a program, which was most enjoyable and well carried out, at the G.A.A. Party at Alhambra Park. The leadership girls also receive! training in how to conduct gym work by taking an absent teacher ' s place. The girls in the leadership class are as follows: Carmen Banks, June Beebe, Alice Bronham, Alice Crawford, Elaine Dear, Luzelle Duke, Geneva Evans, Pauline Falkers, Bemadette Gawthrop, Dorothea Jareiki, Helen Hoadly, Gladys Huff, Helen Hubbard, Mary McCoUough, Betty McDonough, Wilda Manning, Nellie Northrup, Estelle Page, Lorine Prochaska, June Raymond, Mary Bell Snell, Ruby Thendinga, Dorothy Wells, Ruth Simons, and Ruth Cornwell. One Hundred Sixty-eight GIRLS ' TENNIS THE G.A.A. ' s of the Coast League High Schools, voted that girls tennis should not he inter-scholastic. The Alhamhra girls, in place of a team, have organized the tennis cluh. The members of the cluh have been out for tennis for a number of semesters and have shown wonderful advancement. They are as follows: Josephine Curtis, Dorothy Heck, Dorothy Stevenson, Phyllis Gillice, Mar ' McCollouth, Ophelia Briggs, Alice Brest, Margaret Glasscock, Margaret Rowe, Mary Bell Snell, Thelma Mardis, Betty Chamber, Lorraine Parrish, Dorothy Sprague, Elna Pederson, Evelyn Rasmus- sen, Molly Farrell, and Gwendolyn Wakeman. There are a large number of girls out for tennis this year and, under Miss Lin- den ' s careful instruction, they have all improved their technique as well as their game. One Himdred Sixtv-nine VOLLEY BALL " rOLLEY Ball was the first event of the year in the Girls ' outline of games. Great V enthusiasm was shown at the first turn-out of the season and every class had a large number of girls out. The new Freshmen made the other classes look rather small, because they out-numbered them two to one. Most every one was familiar with the fundamentals of the game. Being a minor sport, only twenty-five points are received by the girls making the first team of each class. The girls on the champion- ship team receive thirty-five points. Never was there more of a complete surprise than the championship this year for after all the games had been played, the Freshmen were found to be the victors. They went through the season with flying colors. The B9 ' s were tied with the Juniors for championship and they won two of the three games. The girls on the championship team were: Eloise Cox, Thelma De Lory, Kath- leen Glodwell, Mary Ellarj Harsh, Marienne Heder, Miriam Hubbard, Helen Krieck- ler, Mary Melshimer, Irma Oliver, Eslied Pederson, Virginia Prenzo, Beatrice Spen- cer (Captain), Mary Takayama, and Ina McGregor. One Hundred Seventy BASKETBALL MUCH to the disappointment of all the girls, it was impossible to have basketball this year. It was necessary to drop the entire schedule because of the extra vacation and the rainy weather. However, those girls who were really interested, met one Saturday in the gym- nasium, and played one game, the teams being designated as the " blues " and the " golds. " The leadership girls had charge of the whole affair and proved their skill and initiative in putting over this " Basketball Playday. " One Hundred Seventy-one B BASEBALL ASEBALL is always the next to the last sport of the season, track being the ast. At the South Pasadena Play Day, the Alhamhra team played our old time rivals and earned a 12 to 5 win. The practices have started and show that there is an abundance of good material but no " Babe Ruths. " Last year the competition was keen and this year ' s games will be strenuous and hard fought. The teams have not as yet been organized, but the Seniors are confident of victory. The girls ' rules for baseball are practically the same as those of the boys. By using boys ' rules, they get away from playing an easy game. The pitchers all throw overhand and most of them put a surprising amount of power behind the ball. Base- ball aids the girls by teaching them accuracy in aim and judgment. All the girls are looking forward to the games, each class being confident that it will come out on top. One Hundred Seventy-two SPEEDBALL SPEEDBALL is a comparatively new sport for the girls as this is only the second year that it has been played in Alhambra High School. The girls were more accustomed to the game this year and were therefore acquainted with the rules and fundamentals and had more time to work on technique. Spcedball is a ver ' fascinating game and, like all others it requires a great deal of team work and cooperation. There were only a few practice games this year because of the crowded program. It was a great surprise to all, when at the end of the season, it was learned that the Sophomores had come out on top. The members of the championship team are as follows: Bernice Bccklcy, June Beebe, Lunelle Duke, Dorothea Jareki (captain), Betty Stranad, Margaret Cedarquist, Cecil Clough, Alice Crawford, Helen Hoadley, Ruth Simons, Mildred Wayne, Ruby Thendinga, Jane Wilton, and Betty Donough. One Hundred Sevent -three HOCKEY FOR some reason or other there was not the usual turnout for the teams this year and there was a general lack of enthusiasm. There were not enough girls to make a team for the two classes of Freshman, Sophomore, Junior and Senior. Therefore a new system had to be formed in order that the games could be played. Only two teams were made up — the upper division, consisting of Juniors and Seniors, and the lower division, consisting of the Sophomore and Freshmen girls. These teams practiced faithfully and played two games to decide the champion- ship. The upper division won both these games. The lower division put up a splendid fight considering that last year was the first time that the Sophomores had everr played the game and that this year was the first time many of the Freshmen attempted hockey. The members of the championship Hockey team are: Gladys Huff, Estelle Page, Pauline Folkers, Lorine Prochaska, Elaine Dear, Dorothy Wells, Nellie Northrup (Captain) , Phyllis Lamm, Dorothy Carass, Ruth Simons, Magnolia Salazar, Margaret Blair, Helen Hubbard, Cecil Clough, Bernadette Gawthrope, Genevieve Tomb, and Mary McCollough. The coach of the upper division was Miss Todd, while Miss Pease coached the lower division girls. One Hundred Seventy-four ARCHERY ARCHERY is a minor sport, and, as yet, only the corrective and posture gym classes participate in it. Even so, much interest is shown and the girls come out twice a week for the practices. The targets are down on the old athletic field and are placed forty yards, fifty yards, and one hundred yards apart. It takes a great deal of practice to hit the target at all. Miss Canavan is the girls coach, and under her patient guidance and instruction the classes were able to develop very good posture. A correct position must be main- tained throughout the shot or the aim will he defective. To become accurate, one must have a true eye to judge the distance and direct the arrow to the proper place. Archery strenghtens the muscles in all parts of the body, especially the arms and back. The girls who have taken part in archery have formed an Archery Club. Those who have taken particular interest are as follows: Mary Adaline, Bernice Schrompf, Helen Miller, Betty Camber, Josephine Fenton, Winifred Craven, Winifred Davier, Caroline Moore, Ophelia Briggs, and Alice Brest. One Hundred Seventy-five NATURAL DANCING NATURAL Dancing is under the supervision of Mrs. Crosswhite and Miss Linden; this year the number in the classes was over fifty. Under their guidance the girls strive for the development of muscles, coordination, poise, rhythm, and grace. Natural Dancing also gives points for the G.A.A. This work is especially good, for the awkward, shy, or backward girls because it does develop self-confidence and poise. The girls dance barefooted and wear simple little costumes of Greek design, all of which are in pastel colors. Natural dancing is not dancing of movements to music, but it is the interpreta- tion of music in movements. One Hundred Seventy-six Jd,; iL - GIRLS ' TRACK SINCE Track is the very last event of the year, it is hard to tell just who will get the championship. However, we have heard that the Freshmen are quite limber and cover the course like streaks of lightning. But it remains to be seen how much two, three, or four years of training will do for the girls. There are many events listed in the girls " track meet. They are: the high jump, low hurdles, fifty yard dash, sixty yard dash, one hundred yard dash, hop-step and jump, running broad jump, standing broad jump, baseball throw for distance, basket- ball throw for distance, and the relay. Most of the girls take a great deal of interest in track because it is so different from all the other sports in that it requires individual practice and skill. Track, by inspiring each girl to do her very best to triumph over someone else ' s individual skill, develops self confidence and self reliance. One Hundred Seventy-seven -j A-- , Al J - -i.
