The American ideal seems to be that we must produce larger and more powerful things than any country on earth. Our factories are larger, our railroads longer, our schools bigger than any spot that has yet been discovered. We glory in size and power. But we must he careful that this great size and the power it generates does not become a mere automatic response. Alhambra High School is large. It has potential power. It must not in its thinking degenerate into a mass response to a passing popular fancy. To all those connected with this school I would ask that your individual strength, intelligently guided, be united to give a greater and more powerful Alhambra High. Sincerely, In Southern California we are inclined to value things in proportion to size. By that standard A. H. S. should be highly regarded, for it is now one of the largest high schools in the state. But size is not enough. Again this year Alhambra High has stood high in scholarship, in athletics, in debating, music, art, and many other lines. Her students maintain a standard of school citizenship that is far above the average. Her alumni are continuing to bring honors to themselves and to reflect glory upon their alma mater. Perhaps the most important educational step forward this year is the intro- duction of a regular course in vocational guidance. The value of this work cannot be over-emphasized, and its introduction again demonstrates Alhambra High ' s educational leadership. T ' v 18 Vice- Principals The remarkable growth of our school with its re- sultant crowded conditions has made necessari a greater effort for individ- ual and collective self con- trol. It has been a pleasure to me to be able to help and guide in this move- ment and to feel and know from the innumerable daily contacts with stuc that we have lost none of our high ideals or standards and that our year has closed with real success along all lines. I hope for all of us. those who guide, those who are leaving school by graduation, and those still in school, " that we may live our lives effectively, letting go the unworthy things that meet us. and so live as to be an inspiration, strength, and blessing to those ivhose lives are touched by ours. " The past year has been a very happy and successful one in spite of our overcrowded conditions. It has been a pleasure to work in the friendly and co-operative atmosphere that prevails in the A. H. S. student body. There are many problems confronting us. but I feel that the students of A. H. S. are equal and competent to deal with any occasion. I wish that each one of you will be able to spend a profitable and enjoy- able vacation and be ready to start next fall with renewed vigor and enthusiasm. Sincerely. rh-xT) .

Although handicapped by a great deficit in our Student Body fund, we com- pleted the year with honor; in- augurating among other actirities special Student Body Assemblies. The Commission worked harmon- iously, being helped by the splen- did cooperation of Mr. Bettinger and Mr. Potter. I feel that one of the greatest honors a boy can enjoy is to be Commissioner General of such an energetic and spirited Student Body. John Winterbottom. Commissioner General. ssioners For the fall semester a central ticket sales system with head- quarters in a new ticket office on Bailey Avenue was organized: a new type of Student Body ticket allowing reductions on game tickets was introduced and sold to 2000 students;- a permanent in- jured athlete ' s fund was founded; upwards of $2500 in bills were paid with a total income of over $3000. a fine surplus; and innum- erable smaller matters were at- tended to. It has been a great honor to hold an executive position in one of the Southland ' s major schools.

Memories of success in our Freshman and Junior paper drive; of ripping good skating parties; of our enjoyable Junior Prom, which featured the free expanse of the boundless ocean; of a beautiful Senior Dance; of our ex- citing commencement activities. The events and experiences of our Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior years were all culmin- ated in an unusually successful Senior year. In all of our attempts and strivings we have been helped and guided by an ever-patient, faithful, resourceful adviser. Miss McNeil. To her do we give enthusiastic and heartfelt grati- tude and appreciation. We have truly tried to make our class de- serving of remembrance, one of which to be justly proud. In conjunction with the rest of the school, it has been our goal to uphold the high standard of a graduating class of A. H. S. Wherever we may go, whatever success we may attain, we can truly say in all sincerity that all we are or ever hope to be we owe to our Alma Mater and the kind, friendly co- operation of her chiefs. Always will there be a very warm and tender spot in the hearts of all of us for our admired and loved teachers and friends, most especially Mr, Bettinger and Mr, Routt, Thomas Dwiggins, President.

Our first step was to help the Juniors win the paper drive. We then settled down to study and with a successful skating party closed our freshman year. Entering our sophomore year we again won the paper drive. Next to add to our list of successful activities was the interclass debate championship won from the seniors. During our junior year we won the paper drive, which was the last one held during our four years in high school. That accomplished, we concentrated our efforts on the Junior Play and helped make it the success it was. At the close of our junior year we gave one of the most beautiful proms and the first one to be held in the new girls ' gym. Advancing to the senior assembly seats, we started our senior year by choosing one of the snappiest sweaters ever worn by a senior class. Our next function was the senior dance which was a big success. Along with our other class functions we held many entertaining and pro- gressive class meetings, and accepted and chal- lenged several interclass activities. The para- mount of success in our senior year was the staging of " Green Stockings. " which was splen- didly directed by Mrs. Wynne. And lastly, but greatest of all. was our class day and grad- uation. Joe ' Wallace, President. I..4WS0S. Adviser II JLLJCE. Prrs. riRCLPILE. I ' ice-Pre,.

Henrv Hm ian Bill NoRBERG •OHMAN MiNEHAN Howard Reuland 6 K- 64 P. e. Class The P. G. class of the first of the year was of average size, but we were greatly swelled in numbers by the graduating class of ' 31, so that now we are one of the biggest P. G. classes that Alhambra has ever had. We have also had members of our class who have taken part in Dra- matic work. Among them Jack Her- man and Ernest Pratt, who took lead- ing roles in the " Golden Trail. " and " The Taming of the Shrew, " re- spectively. We feel that we have gained a great deal by coming to A. H. S. not only in knowledge but in fun and social recreation. This year the P. G. ' s have been active in supporting the service clubs. As this class was the largest class that has ever returned to A. H. S., it was a little difficult to become organ- ized, but due to the splendid spirit of cooperation shown by the members of the class soon became just one big family, under the direction of Mrs. Arnett. The class has had unlimited pep as evidenced by our yells in Assem- bly. At the first of the year, we elected our yell leaders, who were: Burl Watson Jr. and Ross Bum- stead. The scholastic standing has been unusually high this year. The officers for the year were: President Allan Ray Vice-President Charles Dunn Secretary- Treasurer Virginia GoBLE Bl2 Class We the class of W ' 32, at the end of our third year find ourselves looking back over the years we have been at A. H. S. and not with regret either, for those three years have been spent well, and we are proud of them. Our class has been especially noted for the wide field and variety of activities which it covers. We have furnished members for all A. H. S. ' s fighting teams, including captains of some of the majors. Our standing in oratory has been unequaled. In our Junior vear we won the interclass debating contest. We also find members of our class win- ning fame in music activities. In every field W ' 32 was represented. Our Junior year was our banner year. We contributed to the cast of " Nancy Ann " which proved to be a success both financially and so- cially. In this year we received a 100 " , ' Student Body Banner. It was in this year also that the never-to-be-forgotten Junior-Senior Tie-up took place, wherein pep and vigor of the Class of W ' 32 was again displayed. And now as we venture into our last year, our only hope is that we will still be able to contribute to the fast progress of A. H. S. We want her to go forth and excel in all things she undertakes, and we want her to know that W ' 32 is willing to lelp out. Edwin Hallock. President. Mc.WE L. .U-Aser HALLOCK. Prt!. KING. lUt-Pres.

We fully realize the duties and responsibilities which fall upon the oldest class in the school and with the able guidance of our Senior sis- ter. Miss McNeill, we hope to set good examples in all that we attempt to accomplish for our class and for the school. Our junior-Senior Prom was an acknowledged success and our deco- rations carrying out the castle gar- den theme with the castle behind the garden wall were praised from all sides. We wish also to take this space to show our gratitude to our Senior class advisor. Miss McNeill, who has so ably helped and encouraged us in our various activities. BU CLASS Prouse.

But, all in all, we have liked ourselves and expect to ontinue to do so. Our freshman year was a good one because we had entered A. H. S.. because we were the largest class in school, and because we and the Juniors won the paper drive. As sophomores we worked hard in another paper drive, made a good showing in debate, and went skating, boy! As juniors we have begun to grow up and take responsibility. This year ' s activities include a very successful play, " Nancy Ann. " participation in various sports, and the best Junior Prom ever. We can close our junior year with pride in our hearts, knowing that the year has been a good one for us, and we have been good to our school. We enter our senior year with anticipation and determination that it shall be a good year, with appreciation for our adviser. Mr. McAlpine, and for all others who have helped us along the way and with loyalty to A. H. S. Charles Fletcher. President. MacALPINE. Advistr FLETCHER. Prei. BLAIR. H„.Prts. CAMERON. Sfc. MOTT.

We find ourselves to be a very success- ful class, full of pep. ' school spirit, and enthusiasm. We are represented in the Scholariship Society, various athletic teams, and student clubs; we feel we are doing our share toward the advancement of stu- dent activities. We are proud of what we have done at A. H. S. and hope to do more big things in the future. Up until this time our social affairs, though few, have been thoroughly enjoyable. Our last, a hike to Switzer ' s camp, was a great success. At the present we are working busily on the Junior Prom, determined to make it go over an event to be re- membered by both Seniors and Juniors for years to come. During our freshman year we were guided through our troubles by Miss lone Zellhoefer. in our sopho- more year by Mr. Miller, and now as juniors by Mrs. Erwine. These, our class advisers, have done everything to make us a worthy class; and to them we wish to extend our gratitude and appreciation. THURMAN WILKINS. President. 72 Bll CLASS Klecker. Klessig.

We im- mediately pledged our loyal citizenship to Alhambra High School by obtaining 100 per cent student body membership. We were proud qf that record but we did not stop at that. We went out for school activ- ities. We fortunately had somfe very promising ma- terial for the different sports. One of our class- men won the Amateur Fencing medal of Southern California. This was very encouraging and made us work harder at all things we attempted. In our freshman year we organized the Junior Hi-Y, which lias gained much popularity since then. Soon our freshman days passed and we became sophomores, and with that dignity came the privilege to initiate freshmen into high school. In athletics, some of our number came to the top in some of the major sports. We placed high in football, basketball and other sports. This year, as in our freshman year we made a fine record in debate. We won the freshman-sophomore debate and by this victory we showed that we would be of much use in later debates. We held but few social functions, but those were " well attended. During our first semester we held a skating party which was a success. We also had a good time on the hay ride to Oak Wild one moon- light evening. The sophomores wish to take this opportunity to thank Miss Turnbull. our class adviser, for the in- terest she has shown in the work undertaken by the class. JACK POWELL, President. Tl KXBLLL.

Under their cheerful leadership our class has accomplished much in ath- letics, scholarship, and social attain- ment. We certainly feel greatly indebted to our class advisor for the many good times we have spent in school. Contrary to the popular belief of the superiority of sophomores we fully realize our humble positions now. but we are looking forward to the time when we will be able to take our places among the leaders of the school. We appreciate the high ideals of the administration of our school and we intend to fulfill to our utmost ability these standards set for us by them and the present upper class- men.

The B-10 class of W ' 34 hopes to have only plea- sant memories of its sophomore year. In order to be of service to Alhambra High the members have already shown a willingness to help and cooperate with the Commissions whenever possible. By par- ticipating in athletics, helping on the Moor staff and joining clubs and societies it has tried to do its small share in making Alhambra High a school of which to be proud. The class has tried to encourage loyalty to the school by good organization. Its officers are now arranging a class party and dance which will serve to unite its members as a social group. To our ad- viser we are grateful for the help and encouragement given us in our endeavors. EARNEST EALSON. President. 80 BIO CLASS Adams, Adams, Albers, Alniand, Anderson, Anderson, M. Anderson. O.

All the classes, sophomore, juniors, and the mighty seniors looked down upon us as almost worthless. As we endure the first semester and finally became A9 we began to feel a little more as if perhaps we really could become a part of this large school. The upper classmen seemed to accept us more as a matter of course and we even joined in a small way in the initiation of the B9 ' s. Now this year, having finally com- pleted our freshman year and gradu- ated into the ranks of the Sophomore classes, we feel as if we are really a part of this school and look for- ward to many good times in it. We also hope to add to the laurels of the school in many ways. BlU CL. S.S nonald, MacI.euii. Martin, Miller, Mfililen. Moncreiff, lurray, Murvin. Negri, Xuccio, O ' Uaniel, Olden. Paddock. Parry.

The first distinction which was won by the class came as quite a surprise to the school, when the ban- ner for one hundred per cent student body member- ship was placed. Since that moment no one has had any doubt as to the enthusiasm and liveliness pos- sessed by the class of S ' 34. Besides being promi- nent in social affairs, the class has contributed many members to the various athletic teams on the cam- pus, who have won distinction. At the first class meeting candidates for class offices were introduced, and plans for organization were begun. At the second meeting the newly elected officers presided, and a program was presented which dis- played much talent on the part of various members. Candidates for offices for our sophomore year have been presented and by June we shall be ready for the activities of the fall. In March some of the members of the class went hiking to Switzers ' Camp, accompanied by Miss Breeze, Mr. Thomas, and Mrs. Farmer, and had a most pleasant time. Under the able supervision of the class advisor. Mrs. Farmer, the class has worked not only in the furtherance of its own interests, by also for the good of our Alma Mater. Jack Snodgrass.

The intriguing mass of arms, legs, weiners, buns, squealing voices, Stray sweaters and coats put in by over-conscientious mothers — some- how these personal belongings didn ' t seem connected — went to the foot of the trail in several ever-ready Ford trucks. After unentangling these fascinating squirmers, we started on our hike. Of course there were the usual number of near-catas- trophies in which we almost lost some of the beloved members over the menacing clifF — but that is to be expected, since no party is complete without some hair-raising episodes. We were all tired and hungry enough to devour ravenously the sizzling, popping weiners in their soft encasing of cold buns. The fact is, we practiced our childish prank of disgracing ourselves by eating en- tirely too much to appreciate our homeward walk to the fullest extent. The comradeship such as was ap- parent in the singing of jovial songs will not be forgotten, for it is just such experiences that endears the memories of high school days. 88 B 9 Class On a drizzly Friday evening in January we as- sembled in the famous Auditorium of Alhambra Night School to face an admiring crowd of friends and relatives to receive our diplomas, very much pleased with ourselves and approving of the praise given us by the speakers. On the ne.xt Monday we came to that same Audi- torium with not the same feeling of confidence, for we were " Scrubs. ' looked down upon by Seniors and Juniors haughty Sophomores, and even the A-9 s made us feel uncomfortable. Never shall we forget the chills and trembles that we felt on the stage that morning, nor the sinking feeling we had upon enter- ing a class room .and finding it full of Juniors. Though somewhat nervous and confused by the complexities of such a great institution, we soon came to feel at home, and took a lively interest in all the school activities, even running the Senior As a close race in the sale of tickets. We have tried out for Light and Shadow, we have bought many memberships in that club. Al- though not yet a semester old as a class we have furnished a material for track and basketball. We are proud of our member on the Freshman team that debated with the Sophomores. And do you remem- ber how we. stirred by our fiery little leader, out yelled those same haughty Sophomores who made our first days so miserable, especially around the fishpond? Three hundred in number, we are looking for- v. ' ard to many good times and much success in classes during our four years in this school, which we all honor. BETTY RAY.

The 1931 Alhambran Staff has been no exception. We have earnestly tried to compile an annual that would be liked, appreciated, and en- joyed by you. In accomplishing this end. we have carefully selected capable printers, engravers, and photographers who have conscientiously fulfilled their duties, taking charge of the fascinating process by which photographs are almost miraculously made into metal cuts which in turn are printed. Entirely divorced from this business angle, is the interesting phase of annual production which in- cludes the planning and execution of those plans by the staff itself. The efficacious art department func- tioned well under its able art editor. Mary Emma Sylvester, and the ever-helpful Mr. Bonar. We ■were fortunate in having in Bernice Beckley a very efficient and resourceful business manager. Howard Sharpe as copy editor fulfilled a difficult position commendably. Frank Crandall was always there one hundred per cent with his sports. Circulation manager. Ray McAllister, and Cliff Ferrell. ad man, " v ' ere both on the job every moment. The whole staff worked harmoniously with the editor. Phyllis Norton, for the compilation of the best annual pos- sible. Too much cannot be said in praise and apprecia- tion of the willing, patient assistance and guidance of our advisers, Mr. MacAlpine and Mr. Bonar. _i2 XORTOS. Editor Mat.lLPlNE. .Uvisor SYLVESTER..

At times when a four-page sheet was found too small Elaine put out a six page sheet. The second semester the Moor blossomed out with six pages for quite a few issues. The merchants of the city got behind the paper and by means of their extensive advertising made a larger Moor a pos- sibility. Frank Crandall. who was editor, learned his journalism at a time when school spirit was rife around A. H. S. A great spirit of cooperation existed between the students and the personnel of the Alhambra Review. printers of the Moor. A large portion of the success a ttained by the paper is due to the guilding hand of none other than Mr. Donald F. McAlpine. faculty advisor without peer: and to him the staffs now curtsy low in re- spectful homage.

These persons are in a class by them- selves and are designated as report- ers. The Moor has been very for- tunate this year in having a plenti- tude of these students around to dig up news and turn it in for publica- tion. The reporter is the foundation of the newspaper; in school publications as well as public sheets. They find the news stories, get the " dope. " write the article in a style suitable for print and then hand it in to the editors. They also are ready to go out and get any stories which the editor may deem necessary. It is through the medium of the reporter that the editors keep posted on what is going on around the school. They are in reality the ten- acles of the news plant which are connected with every department of the institution. The good reporter gets all the story, writes it in tne proper style, that whch is fitting to that type of story, and turns it in to the copy desk. The copy reader cor- rects the articles for punctuation, etc. and passes the story on to the editor, who writes a head for it. It ' s place in the paper is then decided by the editor-in-chief and it is published and read by the multitudes. The scribes working for the Moor this year proved willing to work, kept abreast of the happenings in their various departments, and in every way possible helped make the school paper a success. «-- m4 i y 1 A M ' 4. 1 K i m ' — JjL — 2m mA MOOR REPORTERS Percival, Everingham.

It is composed of two boards, an executive and ad- visory, with Miss Blount. Girls ' Vice Principal as general adviser. The Executive Board has general supervision of all activities in which the League participates. The Advisory Board meets with the Executive Board every other week. The Execu- tive Board has an especially active part in assist- ing the social and welfare committees in accom- plishing the work they do throughout the year. The monthly League meetings held during C. R. period are under the direction of the Executive Board and the programs are presented by the class rep resentatives on the Advisory Board. Each year two girls represent the League at the two conventions of the California Federation of Girls ' Leagues. The delegates to the fall conven- tion held at Orange, California, were: Dorothy Dearing. President; Barbara Lynn, Vice Presi- dent, and Miss Blount. The delegates to the spring convention held at Ontario. California, were: Nancy Barstow, Treasurer; Pat Boland, Secretary, and Miss Blount. The Girls ' League and Boys ' Federation have united many times in the past to present a pro- gram to raise funds for the respective organiza- tions. This year they united in the presentation of a motion picture " The Sophomore. " The Girls ' League and Boys ' Federation have also co-operated on other mutual problems. This year the customary welfare work at Christmas was carried on by both organizations. In recognition of Mothers ' Day they sent out cards to the par- ents or guardians of the students. In carrying out the theme of our Federation convention, which was world friendship, we pre- sented a world friendship program. Girls ' League Advisory Board The Girls ' League Advisory Board is organized to aid the Executive Board to carry on the work of the League. In this board there is a representative from each A and B class division. The welfare committee showed splendid cooperation at Christmas time when the Girls ' League and Boys ' Federation worked to bring food and clothing to the poor. The League has also given special dona- tions to individuals and donations to help carry on civic work. We did our part by joining the Red Cross and by giving donations for Relief Work. The social events of this school year have been a tremendous success. We started the year off with a splen- did party for the B9 girls. Soon after, we entertained all of the new girls down at the gym. The social committee served the Basketball Din- ner for the boys, and served, too. at the Boys ' Federation Luncheon. In March, the Hi-Jinks party was held, at which each class and the faculty presented a program. This year we showed the first talking picture in A. H. S. 99 i IIKKKI-:. AJvhtr WINTERHOTTOM. Is U IIITll IM NEWTON WILKINS Boys ' Federation During the first semester of the school year of 1928, the Boys ' Federation was organized in place of the former Co-operative Government. The pur- pose of this commission is to promote school spirit among students, and to give aid to any worthy activ- ities. Other schools in the Coast League have sim- ilar organizations which go by names such as " The Boys ' League, " " The Boys ' Commission. " and ' The Razor Club. " On March 6th. we entertained the Federations of all the schools in the Coast League including South Pasadena and Whittier. in a federation convention. The banquet held in their honor was given with the help of the Girls ' League, who decorated the tables in a St. Patrick ' s day motif. This year has the combined boys ' and girls or- ganizations give a show in the auditorium for the purpose of raising funds. They presented " The Sophomore, " the first talking ' picture ever to be shov. ' n in A. H. S. The E.xecutive board holds one meeting a week during C. R. period to decide on the plans for the organizations ' activities. Once a month the Boys ' Federation put on a program donated by the various service clubs of A. H. S.

" We had a very lively program of Xmas music. Xmas tree, falling snow, and then every man, woman and child, from the superintendent down, came up on the stage with his individual gift for the less fortunate families of our town. That year it was an experiment. Miss Walker had planned the program. As the students passed by across the stage with their gifts, many of them ex- pressed to her the sentiment. " Let ' s do this every year. " So. each year we have had our gift-giving to the poor, and now it has become such an institution that none of us think of doing without it. We have always kept the gifts both individual and small. It isn ' t the idea at all to have several members of a class go together and give a sack of flour or some big thing, nor does anyone in the school fail to bring his gift. On the Friday before Xmas vacation, one can see Mr, Bettinger hurrying to school with, perhaps, a can of condensed milk under his arm, Mr. Routt goes out of his car carrying, maybe, a quarters worth of potatoes. Mr. Yelland has some apples, Mr. Lawson a jar of jam his wife has made. Miss Nelgner a can of preserves she has put up the summer before. Every Senior, every Junior, every Sophomore, every Freshie comes with his beans, or corn, or raisins, or Xmas pudding, or rice, to add to the mountain of food-stufFs to be piled on the stage. Then, the next morning comes the job of distribution. We do not give carelessly and thoughtlessly. The need every year is too great. The list is gone over again and again to be sure that we are giving the help to those who need it most. Miss Blount, with the Girls ' League, and Mr. ' Werre. and the Boys ' Federation, take the responsibility of seeing that the gifts are distributed. To the things collected in our last assembly, these organizations add toys, fresh vegetables, and fresh meat. We might quote, concerning this event of our school year, the well- known lines, " It blesseth him that gives and him that takes, " for the pleasure we have in giving, equals the pleasure of those who receive these gifts. 101 E- School Bank There is one department in A. H. S. where business is business. This department is the School Bank, op- erated on a systematic basis the same as a large concern. Each member of the bank is as- signed to a particular job, which he has to keep up to date. If that per- son cannot manage to keep up his work during the periods he is as- signed in the bank, he has to work after school until that work is brought up to date. The school bank is the most re- sponsible department of the school, handling all the financial interests of the school. Through this department all the books of the cafeteria and the student store are kept. The commis- sioner of finance, with the help of one or two others, keeps the records and accounts of the finances of the student body and trust funds. The student body accounts consist of athletic funds, " Moor " funds, the annual funds and debate funds. The Lost and Found is another important part of the school bank where students may retrieve their lost articles. C 102 Parent-Teacher Association The Alhambra High School Parent Teachers Association is a volunteer organization engaged in certain specific lines of educational work. Its object is cooperation between the home and school as means of creating a better standard for train- ing students in the duties of citizenship. The president, Mrs. Leonard Parrish, stresser the student-aid work as the outstanding project this year. The two hundred dollar scholarship gift, which was formerly awarded to the most worthy student, has been changed to a student loan fund. The Student Body Store The student store is located in the basement of the west wing. The store started as a candy stand a few years ago, and today it is a large store handling all school supplies, workbooks, gym outfits, novelty articles, and candy. Just recently the store made made the receiving de- partment for the student body. The store has been given a street address, 12 S. Fourth Street. The store is supervised by Mr. Heyl of the faculty and has a student manager. Lost and Found Department The lost and found department is one of the many departments in the school bank. Every article that is turned in is systematically registered with the signature of the finder, a thorough des- cription of the article, and the place where it was found. When the article is claimed by the owner, he acknowledges receipt by signing the register. A great deal of good is accomplished by the department as many articles are returned to their owners. Stage The stage mechanics class is one of the most interesting electives for upper class boys. This year the class has had a great deal of practical experience in remodeling old sets. A special stucco set designed for the Senior Play was the first attempted and 40 yards of material were painted for the tapestry used in the Junior Play. A new set has been constructed and painted for the little theatre and a special set was designed for the opera. P.IJiR SH, Pr,-s. P.T.A. niTTMER.S.B.SloTi- Hl:kRi:kA. Loll and Found GE.XTLE.

The dance took place April 25. in the girls ' new gym. Mr. Elmore E. Shipman acting as Master of Ceremonies made the hop a lively one. The orchestra for the evening was Tommy Brooks ' ' Blue Chasers. " During the intermission, Cal Newell and Dave Knapp entertained with popular numbers. The chairman of the dance was Lee Robinson. Others on the committee were: Don Short, ' Walter Anslinger and Naylor Jones. Senior Dance The annual senior dance of the year was held December 13th in the girls ' new gym. Music was rendered by Ted Greenwaldes orchestra. The dance was well attended, and the lively spirit of Christmas cheer prevailed. This was due, perhaps, to the decoration committee. Eunice Porcupile and Patricia Schulz, who dressed the gym up in a Christmas outfit. At one end of the gym was placed a large Christmas tree decorated with silver ornaments. The spot lights playing upon the tree gave a wonderful effect, casting a silvery light over the whole room. The business manager of the dance was " Wally Burgess. The other com- mittees were: Marker Fiske, Jane Reed, and Joe Wallace, publicity; and Nora Jeanette Jones and Tom Dwiggins, refreshments. Fo rensic uance D Friday night, March 27, the Alhambra Forensic Club held a dance in the girls ' new gym for their guests from Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Citrus High Schools. The dance took place after the Alhambra-Los Angeles debate. The gym was decorated with greenery gathered by various members of the Forensic Club. The orchestra was composed of members of the Alhambra High School Student body, and they furnished some very " peppy " music. Everyone en- joyed the hop and hope that the club continues this custom. 104 p. T. A. Dances This year the Parent-Teacher ' s Association sponsored two very lovely dances for Alhambra High School students, alumni, and their friends. These dances are a favorite social event among the students. The first dance was an autumn sports dance given October 17. Mrs. Helferty was chairman of the dance. Harold Brown ' s orchestra, noted as the snappiest one around Alhambra, furnished the music. The theme song of the dance was " Little White Lies. " Much enthusiasm was caused by the waltz and fox trot contests. Jack Zundel and Rose Hicks won the waltz, receiving two tennis balls and a bottle of perfume. The prize for the fo.x trot contest went to Billy Mayfield and Phyllis Sheldon. They received a knife and a bottle of perfume. The door prize was a merchandise order from Krystalls. During the intermission two numbers on the saxaphone were played. For refreshments, punch was served by Mrs. Wallace. The second dance was given May 2, in the girls ' gym. Mrs. Helferty was again chairman. In accordance with the wishes of the students, the custom of having entertainment during the intermission was done away with. All the time was devoted to dancing. The music was furnished by Norm Molher ' s orchestra. Refreshments were served by Mrs. Wallace. The members of the Parent-Teachers ' Association who were most active in sponsoring these dances were: Mrs. Helferty, Mrs. Zundel. Mrs. James, Mrs. Parrish, and Mrs. Barton. The students enjoy these social events and hope that the custom will be retained in the future. Light and Shadow Hi-Jinks The Light and Shadow Club held their yearly Hi-Jinks. June 6, in the girls ' new gym. The club Collegiates played. Only members of the Light and. Shadow and their friends attended. A program of the different plays that were given during the year was presented. Following this a balloon dance was held. For those not wishing to dance, tables of bridge and bunco were pro- vided. Dick Whitall and Ruth Lytle were acting as host and hostess. The chairman of the Hi-Jinks was Naomi Harmon. The committee help- ing here were Louise Howard. Walter Grandon. and Arthur Davis. Marcella Gleeson acted as publicity manager. Palms and greenery furnished the decorations for the gym. Mary Adeline Paden and Louise Howard served the refreshments of cider and bridge cookies. The chaperons were Miss Walker. Mrs. Wynne. Miss lone Zellhoefer, Miss Gentle, Mr. and Mrs. Gleason. Mr. and Mrs. Bettinger and Mr. Ship- 105 Juni lor Torn The loveliest affair of the year of the Alhambra High School social season, the Junior Prom, was held May 23rd. in the girls ' new gym. The spirit of the month was carried out in the decorations which followed the May Day theme. Music was furnished by Harry Rose ' s Play Boy Orchestra. The Juniors and their guests, the Seniors, numbered over five hundred people. The Prom was under the management of Don Moye. assisted by Mary Ellen Horsch. w ho had complete charge of the decorations. Other chairmen were Bernice Simmonson, flower; Marjorie Sampson, basket; La Verne Evans, May Pole ; Harriet Gibbs. details; and Floy Hendricks, publicity. The gym was transformed into a beautiful garden of flowers. In the center of the floor was placed a lovely May pole. Around the edge of the ballroom sixteen lovely May baskets were hung ten feet from the floor. Flowers of various colors filled the baskets. Large butterflies rested among the flowers. A May pole streamer was attached to each basket forming with the strings of flowers stretched across the room, a beautiful ceiling. The array of colors furnished a most beautiful background for the lovely dresses of the girls. Punch was served by Mrs. Wallace from out of a large May basket. It is most fitting that this beautiful affair should close the social season of the year. 106 SCHOLARSHIP MEMBERS lU-ckk-y. UcttiiiKcr. Carripan, Ceder C ' oseiui, C ' uiiniiiK ' liatii.

It is limited to those students who have obtained one ' s in three solids, and no grade below a two. And the student must have kept his merit score above eighty. During the past year we have had many successful social functions. On October 17th we hiked to Switzer ' s Camp. We put on a play by several members of the chapter; we all en- joyed a party held in the girls ' gym- nasium. On February 7th, a very enjoyable time was had in the snow of the Ice House Canyon; another assembly was put on under the auspi- ces of the Scholarship Society; the officers of the society attended a dis- trict convention at Burbank High School; a group of delegates repre- sented Alhambra at the Southern Region students ' conference at Ful- lerton High School.

Another successful year for the Alhambra Scholarship Society has passed into history. The motto " Scholarship for Service " has been carried out to the fullest extent. The Alhambra Chapter has been of service to the other high schools, to our Student Body, to individual students, and to the faculty. The society has assisted the Southern region, an organization composed of all the scholarship societies in Southern California, in solving the redis- tricting problems; has entertained District 8 at the last social meet- ing; has presented to the Student Body two very educational and in- teresting programs; has coached less fortunate students; and has helped the faculty in arranging and correcting papers. All in all the organization can not be listed as one of the dead clubs, but must be included in the most active ones. There have been consistently about seventy-five members on the society. Of this number specia mention should go to those stu- dents who have attained life mem- bership in the California Scholar- ship Federation. Those receiving especial recognition were: Mari- am Borkenhagen, Evelyn Bridges, Ida Cornwell. Freda Epstein. Ber- nice Beckley, Margaret Ceder- quist. Robert Herrera, Helen Hoadly. Robert Kramer, Phyllis Norton, Joe Phillips, Mary Emma Sylvester, Roy Johnston. 109 ART CIAH I.twis. Lima. Martin. Manning. McCay. .McChosney. McCria. .McMillan. McXcal, Mcinhanlt. .MiTrill.

This is about one- third more than last year, which shows the progress the club is mak- ing. Those are eligible to the art club who receive recommended grades in any art subject. The ob- ject of the club is to gather together the students interested in art work and given them new art interests. The club has participated in a number of activities during this year. Among the most interesting activi- ties have been: sketching trips, art displays, and poster contests. The club has been fortunate in having two good speakers for their meetings. Miss Hinchcliff of U.C.L.A. spoke on the play that her school was pre- paring to give. Some very interest- ing costumes and stage settings were displayed. At another meetinq on March 4. Mrs. Chouinard. of Chou- inard School of Art. spoke to the club and showed many examples of the work of her students.

At this meeting the members enjoyed a pic- ture on art. A new feature in the activities was the puppet show, held during C. R. period on April 13. There were about twenty marionettes in this show. The dolls were designed, cast, and made by the students of the stage design class. The class also produced the play. The biggest event of the year was the sixth annual art e.xhibit. Besides the display in the patio, there were several exhibits in the art building. The making of process posters was demonstrated by the commercial il- lustration class. The metal classes showed the different processes of de- signing and making metal articles. Several small pieces were woven by a member of the weaving class to demonstrate the use of large looms.

This club brings into the school a type of drawing other than that taught in the art department. The cartoon editor for the annual was chosen in practically the same way as last year. Members of the club sent in cartoons on assigned subjects. Sarah Wheeler was chosen cartoon editor because of the superi- ority of her work. The first meeting consisted of elec- tion of officers for the coming year. The second meeting was of interest to all. Mr. Bonar gave a talk on cartooning, .illustrating his lecture with drawings made by his night school classes and others. At the last meeting officers for the following year were elected.

This club represents a group of boys who are working to- gether toward a higher goal and who are upholding high ideals. The purpose of the Hi-Y Club is to create, maintain, and extend throughout the community high stan- dards of Christian character. The Hi-Y expects to find boy: who are willing to go into a bond of fellowship to be mutually helpful. These fellows are endeavoring to extend their character over more ac- tivities of their daily life. We hold our meetings on Tuesday evenings at 7:30. Many of our in- teresting meetings have been due to the work of the Y secretary. Mr. E. " A. Harris. Our social activities have been limited during the winter but usually are successful in the spring of the year. Many social events hav been undertaken and have proven successful for those who attended.

The plays produced by this body during 1930-31 were: The Diaboli- cal Circle, Advantages of Being Shy, the Christmas play. The Birthday Ball, and The Taming of the Shrew. This year the Light and Shadow ' s annual frolic was held May 15th. It was made up of a combined vaude- ville and hi-jinks, being followed by a dance in the girls ' gym. Other duties of the organization were: managing the finances of the Shakespeare Festival, serving re- freshments after class plays, and the presentation of the Senior play re- view. Active members are chosen through semi-annual try outs, and through participation in class productions.

With " Unity for Service " as its motive, the same as that of the Senior Club which sponsors it, many endeavors were made by the Junior Exchange to serve the school. The most important move of the year was the selecting of Mr. Law- son for faculty advisor, at the sug- gestion of the Senior Exchange club. Under his supervision and that of the officers of the first and second semester, admission of new members by application was made into a prac- tical system, and plebes were initiated in a warm manner.

The roster of this club is made up in its entirety from the forensic leaders of the school. Although this union is very con- servative, it has become a most cher- ished tradition of the student mem- bers, that the grand finish of a successful season should be cele- brated in a grand manner by the staging of the biggest dinner dance of the season. We also enjoyed a moonlight bath- ing party and several hay rides which were enjoyed by all those who were on the " band wagon. " The objective of this renowned organization is to promote good fel- lowship among its members. It is, of course, unnecessary for an elabo- ration upon the success with which this organization has operated. Every function of the club was attended by a large group, bearing witness to the great popularity of its social events. President ..Bob North Vice-President Geo. McGill Secretary-Treas Louise Howard 116 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 McDill: it was largely through her efforts that the club was favored with many in- teresting and beneficial programs at the meetings. The meetings, held twice quarterly during the C.R. period, included several Latin plays and many en- lightening reports on Roman life and customs, as well as the singing of Latin songs. The organization of the club is similar to the government of the Roman State, there being two Con- suls, 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 dur- ing the meetings, not only enlightens one on the traditions and customs of . the Roman civilization, but also makes the study of the Latin lan- guage more interesting and enjoy- able. The officers for the year were: Consuls Ray McAllister Nancy Barstow Quaestor Barbara Lynn Schba Roberta Wagner Upper Aediles Mary Cunningham Esther Hoover Lower Aediles Jimmy Hoyl Dale Dodds LATIX CLUB Albers, Anderson, Andren, Artz, Aurier.

French Club This year has been an unique one for the French Club of A. H. S., having seen the organization of a French Glee Club and having marked an epoch in its large part in Inter- national Nig|ht. itself an entertaining and |ngtriir ivp ncw feature in the riiod«rig«t«guage department pror ,gra nr November 24. another meeting was held, with an enlightening talk by Miss Greene, head of the science de- partment, being featured. She spoke about some unusual French people whom she knew while abroad, and about their customs. As the purpose of the French Club is to provide occasions for the various classes to meet in a social as well as instructive atmosphere. Inter- national Night. February 20. was a great success. A French play. " L ' Anglais Tel Qu ' on Le Parle. " was enacted by members of the club, who showed their ability as actors. At this time also the French Glee Club gave three selections. The public was invited. Several r.-.cmbers of the club trav- eled in a c- ' up fo Taix French res- taurant in Los Angeles, where a delicious dinner was served.

Qualifications for membership requires one year of recommended Spanish. The paramount achievement of the club this year was the presentation of " International Night, " in conjunction with the French Club, promoting the international idea of World Friendship. This organization contributed as its share of the program a play, " Los Tres Novios, " and a group of Mexican folk songs rendered by the Spanish Glee Club under the direction of Miss Hotchkiss, President Beartrice Salazar Vice-President Julian Ebat Secretary-Treasurer Don Move 119 LIHRAKV Kt ' lk-y.

In order to be able to satisfactorily meet these demands it has been the object of the librarian to build up as adequate and carefully chosen collection of books as possible. This policy has required careful attention with ref- erence to the courses offered, the number of classes in each, and the number of students enrolled in the Every effort has been made to make the library quarters in E-20 comfortable and inviting so that stu- dents may enjoy their reference work and reading there. The department offers an oppor- tunity to girls of the upper division to become acquainted with principles of library economy and make con- tact with books and current litera- ture. During the school year visits have been made by the library class to nearby school libraries in order to acquaint the members with the w ork and students in other libraries. Speakers on current topics of the day. presentation of book lists and book reviews, and plays, have added much to the enjoyment and inspira- tion of the visits. One of the out- standing events of the current school year was the visit to the Henry E. Huntington Library. 120 Home Economics The Home Economics organiza- tion has had more members this year than ever before. The club had sev- eral meetings in E-16, and in the auditorium. Because of Miss Park- hurst, the speakers were chosen for their cleverness, and were enjoyed very much by the listeners. At the second meeting. Miss Parkhurst se- lected Eloise M. Cox, with the con- sent of the members, to preside at the meetings. The Home Economics club had a drawback this year in not selecting the officers for the organization early enough. However, next year the membership will be larger, and the officers will be voted to their posi- tions in time. The year brought much publicity to the club, and the present members are looking forward to a better time in the coming season. HO.ME ECOXOMICS IJryan, Angel, Bosch, Stewart. Taylor. Groff.

It is an or- ganization composed of those fel- lows who have earned letters in any of the major sports. These sports are: football, basketball, track, base- ball, and tennis. The yell leaders also have membership in this club. A distinct improvement in the club has been noticed this year. The Big " A " Club is supporting the Boys ' Federation and other clubs in the movement tending toward student government in A. H. S. For the advisor the club has none other than the former track coach. Mr. Dale Stoddard. Under his guid- ing hand big things can be looked for from this organization in the future.

To attain mem- bership, one must have earned seven hundred and fifty points, and for each additional two hundred and fifty points the girl receives a star on her A. Algia girls have had many social events during the past school year: a dinner and theatre party in Feb- ruary which proved to be a hilarious event; a wonderful week-end in the mountains; a very successful bridge party at the Alhambra Woman ' s Club; an annual banquet at the Al- hambra Elk ' s Club, to which all of the alumni members were invited.

If a girl has a " yen " for athletics and continues to come out. it isn t long before she gets her minor " A, " the equivalent of five hundred points. Then the big " A " looms into sight, and she becomes an Algia member, which is a club one feels mighty proud to belong to. After receiving an " A. " it is the ambition of most girls to earn stars, which are given for each additional fifty points over the seven hudred and fifty. The purpose of the G. A. A. is to promote a spirit of democracy, good sportsmanship, co-operation, and a higher physical efficiency by foster- ing an interest in gymnastic and ath- letic ability.

He was succeeded in this position by Coach Stoddard in 1929. This organization strives to assist in all possible ways, the functioning of a better cooperative school sys- tem and in all its social and athletic activities. The club is limited in its duties ji activities as well as its membeEfehiCLj inasmuch as only the fellows W«o prove their distinction are elected to this organization. These usually include, commissioners, class offi- cers, outstanding athletes and all round good school citizens. It should be considered an honor and privilege .to belong to this club as its member- ship qualifications include, leader- ship, scholarship and citizenship. " Service to A. H. S.

The slogan of the club is clean speech, clean sports, clean scholar- ship and clean life. The underlying principle of this club is to " Serve " in all things pertaining to the better things in life. I We have the four fold program; the first meeting of the month is phy- sical, the second meeting is Spiritual, the third meeting is social and the fourth meeting is intellectual. Application for membership in this club is open to the two lower classes in high school. The Jr. Hi-Y is sponsoring several service jobs around the school. One of them is -the " know your team " cards that were passed out at the football games.

This organization n,as just completed its most successf al year and one which was full of ac tivity. The Longfellows held a dinner in honor of graduating Senior members. The honorary guest was Mr. Harold Werre. The Longfellows are A, FL S. firemen and their badges give the fellows authority to take charg an exit of a building during The A. H. S. firemen blocked fire drills. At the close of the secon the Longfellows held their Si nual event, which was a dance, that was very well attended.

Ushers The ushers form an important link in the chain of activities of A. H. S. This group is chosen by Miss Shrop- shire, after a careful study of Schol- arship which includes dependability, reliability, honesty. The ideal of service is the keynote of this organ- ization. For many years this organization has been functioning at the Wednes- day programs, presented by the Mu- sic Department, when only a few ushers were needed, but for the last five years the organization has stead- ily grown in numbers and in the amount of service rendered until at the present time this group handles the ticket sales for practically every activity that is presented in the Au- ditorium, not only for the Music De- partment, but for the Student Body as well. The work is most capably handled by Miss Shropshire, the Faculty Ad- viser, who ha " s so well built up and maintained the high degree of loyal- ty that is present. As Mr. Bettinger says. " It is with a great deal of sat- isfaction that I know the efficient and prompt service given by the ushers in the Auditorium. It is a great honor for a boy to be chosen for his attitude and trustworthiness to serve in this organization. " All through the year the ushers have worked harder than ever before, due to the great number of programs given, but I know they have enjoyed it thoroughly.

This comedy feature is presented through the courtesy of the Dynamic Dresser — dresses you while you swallow vour concentrated break- fast pill. Robot 97642. " September 17, ladies and gentlemen, brought opening day to Alhambra High School, in 1930. It was the unique habit of students a century ago to place the incoming freshmen on the stage in embarrassing positions, so that the au- dience could laugh at them. After that the principal of the school. Mr. Bettin- ger — people had names then, not num- bers — made a personal introduction speech to the students. His robot must have needed repairs. Opening day passed with only the usual casualities. ■ ' The Yell Leaders rated new outfits for this year ' s activities. White bed- ford cord knickers, oxfords and loud socks, and sweaters with megaphones in felt on them. What a sensation they would cause any of our roof-thor- oughfares today. They were hot stufl then. " Nov, 24 was the most important debate for 1930, People worried over the problems of government and science in those days, instead of allowing auto- matic committees of thought machines to take care of them, and A. H. S. stu- dents made a sport of debating. The editor of the 1931 annual and her part- ner, won a decisive victory over San Diego. It took five hours, an enormous waste of time, for them to go a mere 130 miles. Air travel was expensive and a little unsafe at that time. ■■The art of making round vibrations as a science so that, striking the ear drum, they inspired to different emo- tions was in 1931 but a primitive art. A group of student, blowing into instru- ments to make a shrill screetch, under the direction of Mr, Ulmer, went to the game, and forming in a band screetched enthusiastically. There is no doubt that his music, for that day, was a master- piece of primitive snycopation. " The Senior sweaters of the summer class of 31 came, and the Seniors en- tered assembly on Friday in a blinder- ing flash of orange color. They went very well on those that still wear them, with the bright green of the Winter class sweaters, which came out the ne.xt semester. " A club composed of the intellectual elite of the school, " The Scholarship Society. " annually held a half holiday. This year they congregated and hiked to Switzer ' s where they held a roast. Weiners for your understanding, ladies and gentlemen, were little etc. " The Alhambrans were deeply dis- appointed in the outcome of the foot- ball game at San Diego. They were well on their way to another champion- ship, and this clash victory would have cinched the matter. The score was overwhelmingly against the Moors. " The Light and Shadow Club, a drama organization gave a play, " The Diabolical Circle. " The play was cen- tered about a Quaker father ' s fear for the result of his daughter ' s marriage, and the difficulties met with by the hero as a result of the old Friend s stub- bornness and prudishness. " Another instance of the primitive disregard for the elements and their danger to health was shown by these students when the entire school went in land autos. propelled by motor instead of electric rocket power to South Pasa- dena, and sat in a drizzling rain to watch the Moor football team beat their traditional enemies, the tigers by a score of 19 to 0. The 1930 scientists had not yet learned to control the fal of rain and snow, and keep spring in the large cities. f j j j f. " Thanksgiving brought a three days ' rest for the Moors. It rained, but they went places, got wet. and enjoyed them- selves just the same. What wiry and energetic young people lived in that age. Would we had them now, in- stead of steel robots like mvself. " The Senior play, given without the aid of radio, television, or robots, was called ' Cappy Ricks. ' The conditions were primitive but the marvelous energy of these young people overcame the obstacles, and made a financial and dramatic success of the production. We applaud them. " The Moor weekly paper published by the Arabs of Alhambra, appeared one Friday sporting a modernistic and very attractive head in place of the or- nate decoration which had been in use before, and which was soon replaced for some obscure reason known only to the editor. ' Perhaps the most puzzling thing that these youthful antidiluvian ances- tors of ours indulged in, ladies and gentlemen, was an institution which prevailed among the Seniors, called " Kid Day " (one moment; we ask y our indulgence while the right-wheel spivot of my left elbow joint is oiled. My gestures are becoming too mechanical.) It was the quaint custom of those about to graduate to come to school dressed in the ridiculous costumes affected by little children. Children were allowed to run loose and squall then, instead of being caged up and gagged by the gov- ernment, as is the custom today. " For the first time the hardworking staff of the " Alhambran " decided to buy little emblems to show that they v ere part of the annuel organization. The pins, of silver were modernistically designed by Mary Emma Sylvester. Art Editor, paid for by the staff and presented in assembly. Play Day, that day on which the girls of various schools assemble to vie with each other in all the sports played by girls, was held at Alhambra. Many were the exciting games and every one went home tired but happy. " The Juniors gave one of the most successful dramatic productions of the year, ' Nancy Ann. ' The play was a financial success, well attended and beautifully portrayed. Many future stars took part in Nancy Ann. ' " Dancing being a popular sport in 1930. the Senior dance, on December 13, was considered an important affair, A good orchestra was secured and the upper classmen came, imbibed punch in great quantities, and capered hither and yon under the multi-colored spots. (The poetry is the fault of the fellow who made this record in me; I am nat- urally practical). We have no record of what happened in the respective au- tos after the dance. It was a huge success. " One of the praiseworthy customs of the Ancient Alhambrans was their cus- tom of Christmas Gift giving from the comfortable to the poor. The institu- tion was started by Miss Walker, dy- namic debate coach, and in ' 31 A. H. S. held one of its most successful Christ- mas Gift Days. " Christmas vacation brought two weeks of glorious freedom to the Al- hambranites. School put happily in the background, the students made the most of the winter two weeks ' holiday. They ended it gloriously with New Years. We will in another feature, give you details of the interesting method the Moors had of celebrating New Years. " The Class Day of the winter class was as cleverly executed and produced as any. It was viewed by a crowd and enjoyed by everyone. ft • ' ' .S:: ' ' ' " ! I . " ■■ Drama St tS Othello Viewedf Jp kpa ' ' Joket by Kd f . " Commencement brought a close to the high school life of the winter grad- uation class. They received their dip- lomas with varying emotions and v,ent on their way w ith the heart felt con- gratulations of the school. " T " . 0 ff ± ;i ' - — , ' iiVe Club • . Hoi ■ ' c fli ' A - ' " The usual routine was followed when these freshmen were entered. They were these usually numerous and wide-eyed, everyone felt e.xtra sor- ry for them and laughed more than ever at their expense. " Four husky voiced yodellers from LaVerne College came one Friday to give the Alhambrans a treat in quar- tette harmony syncopation. They locked arms, waved back and forth in an ecstasy of rhythm, and sang enthu- siastically and well. The feature was well attended and enjoyed by every- one. " A novelty in presentations was given by the combined Spanish and French Clubs when they presented Internation- al Night. Plays in French and Span- ish, and features in the different lan- guages were part of the program. One international language was not then in e.xistence. " The Moor rponsored a novelty con- test in which for ten days the contest- ants were not supposed to shave. A system of eliminating annoying hair growths had not been invented, and the result was quite interesting on all the entrants. Fred Moran won. " Basketball season was not a cham- pionship one for A. H. S.. but the Bees were victorious an unusal number of times. The games were well attended, and the teams did very commendable work. The men of mighty arm went lorth from the Moor stronghold to capture all the honors in the Coast League for tennis. A new sysfem to finance the stu- dent body was introduced this year. A thirty-five cent ticket bought the Moor and membership in the student body. This ticket with twenty-five cents pur- chased admission to all games. Sales were very satisfactory. Another bene fit of the new S. B. tickets was the ad- mission then gained to special assem- blies. Miss Shropshire obtained good talent from many places, and the stu- dent body holders were treated many times during 1931. The Seniors put on their play " Green Stockings. ' a sophisticated English comedy drama. It was a huge success as senior plays usually are. financially and otherwise, and was extremely well attended. Willis Green and Shirley Ellis were the leads, while June Beebe did excellent work, and Ray McAllister and Wally Burgess brought forth many laughs. The debaters from Los Angeles High School came to Alhambra on one eve- ning determined to carry off the victory of wits. They sent their best debaters, but Roy Johnston and Bob North put forth such excellent arguments for cap- ital punishment that Alhambra won the decision 3 to 0. On that same evening the debate pins were given out and Phyllis Norton received the Clark trophy. " The art classes found it necessary to make a trip to Fish Harbor to find adequate scenery for their sketching. They enjoyed the trip as a social event, and came home with various very good representations of scenes of the quaint little harbor. " During the one v eek of Easter va- cation the A. H. S. students migrated in a body to Balboa, where they forgot everything but foam-crested breakers with sand and hot dogs. Night found them stuffed into the Rendezvous try- ing to find dancing space. Everyone came back with sunburn and a story of a marvelous time. Old Saint Patrick, himself, appeared one sunny morning when the Senior B s donned their bright green sweaters and proceeded to show to the lower class- men what a real senior sweater should be. Various athletes from Alhambra started their practice of the good Amer- ican game, baseball and hold high hopes for a championship year. " The Light and Shadgj staged the hit of the year in ' The Taming of the Shrew, ' old Shakespearean comedy. They surprised everyone by discover- ing a marvelous Petruchio in Walter Grandon and attracting an overflowing house. " Track discovered many new stars this year, among them a Nebraska ath- lete, Rex Addis, who rivalled college pole vaulters by hopping 12 feet, six inches and breaking a record. Track had a very successful season in 1931. with many records broken and many meets brought to a successful conclu- sion. Miss Gentle ' s stage classes presented a clever and unusual show. " The Goose Girl. " It was a puppet show very ex- cellently and professionally produced. The puppets and their gorgeous cos- tumes were designed and manufactured by the stage classes. " The last social event for the Seniors of the Junior-Senior Prom at which they were guests. It was given in May. and the girls gym was beautifully decorated in May day style. A very good or- chestra was engaged and the affair was a success, as always. As usual the Scholarship members journeyed to Balboa for their spring half holiday. They left school at the beginning of sixth and everyone re- ported a good time. " The opera centered around a Span- ish family in Gold Rush days. The songs were marvelous, and beautifully sung. The auditorium was crowded with students listening to one of Miss Walker ' s and Miss Shropshire ' s great- est musical productions. " That age old much looked forward to Junior-Senior Tie-up occurred as usual. In the midst of mud and stream- ing water the battle royal took place and as always the mightiest were victor- ious ( how lucky for our metal bodies that such brawls are passe. ) The commencement of the summer class brought to a finish the long strug- gle of four years for the seniors and most of them were delighted at having finally finished. Thus ends our quaint and curious ac- count and mechanical robot 97643 is now signing off. There ' s Francis Lionberger with his usual smile, the usual crowd in a car in front, and even those two inseparables. Johnny and Inky. There seems also to be a ticket waiting for some poor fel- I n Mr. Werre, Hyle, and Stoddard lend their pictures to this section of student Hfe. while Don Funk.

Howard SUttrpe 147 POWER Music, in soft syncopated strains of melody, ripples into the room . . . music from a carven. inlaid box in the corner. Somewhere, in some city, man has mastered to his hand a thing of might, a thing intangible and beyond our ken. or power of realization. Yet it is a slave, shackled to wires and steel towers, and little microphones, and a man ' s voice. It is power, and it is ours. Used as we are to it, to touch a button and watch the room spring into a shadded brilliance of opalescent amber; to move a lever, and feel the machine enclosing us move as of its own volition and rise into the air in a sort of winged majesty; these things bring us inevitably a thrill, a sense of power. That sense of importance is. after all. the same to monarch or pauper. An emperor sat on his dais, surrounded by a gaudy, and after all. rather cheap magnificance created to remind him incessantly that he was all-powerful. He felt the same surge of pride that comes to a village post-master who has a new clerk to order about. Power, and the sense of it. is a pleasant thing, perhaps because it is so unattainable, and so few have it. Placed in the hands of a few, who may safely play with the treacherous, and often mischevious god. it creates, in many forms, the force that turns the world. But it has evil associations, too. The desire for it has turned, in a few years, affable young men with letters on their sweaters, and becoming tans on their faces, into flaccid old fools, with pockets under their eyes and greed shrieking from every gesture and glance. Its effects are both good and evil; we hope there are so many more good ones that it may be smiled upon as a god. and safely worshipped by most. For it is a god, and every one worships it, although in different ways. Power is an element in the lives of all of us. Some worship it with their all . . . ready to sacrifice life and money for an infinitesmal portion of its bene- fits. Others secretly worship it. though they present indifference and mocking laughter on the surface. But all must in some measure bow to Power. However, it receives both forms of worship with the same non-commital stolidness. Because it does not need the acknowledgment of money and lives indif- ference and laughter cannot hurt it. For it is Power .... — Howard Sharpe. 148 " Cappy Ricks " The first play of the year was " Cappy Ricks. " presented by the Senior Class of W ' 31 under the direction of Bertha Wiley Wynne, with Earl Sawyer assisting. " Cappy Ricks " is a delightful comedy adapted from the story by Peter B. Kyne. Florence Ricks (Margaret Schumway ) falls in love with the gal- lant Matt Peasley (Bill Davis), whom old Cappy (James Spencer) declares his most dangerous competitor in the shipping business. An aunt. Lucy Ricks. (Patricia Schulze ) seems always to be present to clear up difficult situations for Florence and Matt. Dear Cecil Pericles Bernhard (Roy Ludt ) portrays comedy, as the lover of Cappy ' s secretary, Ellen Murrey (Lucille Manley), while John Skinner ( Elden Floyd) finds himself a most able assistant of the " Old Man ' s " and Cappy stands behind him. too (literally), in everything. Controversies must always be settled by a competent attorney. Edward Single- ton (Tom Dwiggins), and cars must always be driven by attractive chauf- feurs like Brookfield (Ernest von 5udow). As you must have already auessed — all turns out well. 150 ■ ' jfreen Stocking " The Senior Class of S ' 31 presented for their Senior play. " Green Stock- ings, " a comedy in three ac s. The play was thoroughly enjoyed by the audience, both afternoon an l evening. More laughs were extracted from them than has ever jarred th auditorium in all its history. An exceedingly clever rflot is revealed when Celia imagines she is in love with an unknown man in Africa. Picture her embarrassment when the un- known man actually turns up. But with the aid of her aunt. Celia manages to have everything turn oat in everybody ' s favor. With the capable support of Bertha Wiley Wynn, director: Miss Gentle, stage manager: Dorothea Jarecki, student director: the cast gave an excellent play, both dramatically smd financially.

" Nancy Ann " was very well advertised and it was a big success, financially and dramatically. Nancy Ann, a timid young girl, is being " put out " into society by her four aunts, but she doesn ' t want to make her debut: she runs away and ends up in a theatrical producer ' s office where she meets three experienced chorus girls and Sidney Brian, the producer. After many difficulties. Nancy Ann secures a part in one of his plays, but her aunts intervene. Then Sidney offers her a part for life. Ruth Lytle played the part of the shy, demure Nancy Ann excellently, and Donald Moye made a charming hero. They were supported by a very talented cast. Much of the success goes to the director, Mrs, May Gleason, and to the student director, Naomi Harmon. THE CAST Nancy Ann Ruth Lytle Sidney Brian Donald Moye Aunt Angeline Connie Decker Aunt Nancy .

In every one of our ten forensic encounters our A. H. S. representatives have created a great respect for the prowess and ability of our teams. We have to show for a year well spent a championship in one league and an enviable showing in another. It is most fitting and proper that we pay tribute to the coaches who have laid the foundations for. and lead us in our triumphs. Alhambra ' s superiority in the field of debate for the past and present is due to the ever alert, aggressive and exacting training sponsored by Miss Veda R. Walker, who has forgotten more about debate tactics than most debate coaches ever knew, and Mr. Elmore E. Ship- man, the enterprising coach behind this year ' s successes in the Southern Cali- fornia Debate League. To these. A. H. S. expresses its keen and deeply felt apprciation for the work done and the ideals after which they have striven. MISS WALKER Championship Debate With Alhambra and Citrus tied for the lead. Naomi Harmon and George McGill were chosen to represent for Alhambra the local hopes on the negative side of the following question: Resolved. That the California Criminal Syndi- calism Law Should Be Repealed. The Alhambra team was able to gather legal precedents and authoritative material which the Citrus team was helpless to refute. With the Citrus debaters floundering about in an effort to find their bearings. Naomi and George won the overwhelming decision of the expert judge. The work of the Alhambra team was superior to that of their oppo- nents in every department of the debate. Alhambra won its first championship in the San Gabriel Valley Debate League this year. The coaching duties for an interscholastic league were for the first time in the history of the school vested in a student and one a veteran debater. Bob North. The school is deeply indebted to Bob. who remained out of active debating for most of the year in coaching this league. 154 ROBERT SORTH Cwrt r ' r! L. PHYLUS SORTOS RJYMOSD R£ES Oratorical Contest on the Constitution This year the themes on the Constitutional contest produced some splen- did orations. Alhambra ' s representative was chosen bv an audience vote. The palm went to Rees. who won last year. Donald Moye won second and Thurman Wilkins was awarded third. Raymond ' s splendid oraton.- won for him first place at the District finals. The Local Oratorical Contest The local oratorical contest was this season in its second annual perform- ance. The speeches are selected orations of national leaders. The contest winners are judged entirely upon presentation and delivery. Phylhs. who is a championship debater and holder of the Clark Trophy, quite deservedly took first place in the contest this year, speaking on. " The War for Righteousness. " Johnston as a comparatively new debater, who has done surprisingly good work in inter-scholastic debate, was second giving a selection from Elihu Root. Julian Ebat came in third speaking on ' True Americanism. " The money prizes of fifteen dollars and ten dollars were voted by the student body for the winners. The judges of the contest were Major Elsey. Mr. Marriot. Postmaster, and Miss Gil- strap. The other contestants were Cliff Ferrell. George McGill and Louise Howard. Clark Debate Trophy Each year Mr. Wm. J. Clark, well known local attorney, awards a beautiful silver trophy for e.xcel- lence in debate. In the past the debaters who have received this individual award are: Fred Dilg. Bob Sharp. Glenn Jones. Constance Eby and last year Bob North. This year the permanent trophy went to Phyllis Norton, a two-year veteran, who showed most remarkable ability, improvement and all around good debate knowledge. All who have ever heard Phyllis debate will agree that undoubtedly she was this year the logical choice for the honor. ,. , _, _ i i i 155 KOr J()ll, STON LOVISE HOWARD GEORGE MtGILL , .10MI n.lRMOX RAY MtJLLISTER TERRY HARMON DONALD MOYE MELIIfi NELSON San Gabriel Valley Debate League Citrus at Aihambra The first debate of the season in the San Gabriel Valley Le ague took place at Aiham- bra. while the return debate of the dual affair took place at Citrus. Melvin Nelson and Ray McAllister represented Aiham- bra on the affirmative and more optimistic side of the question. Resolved: That this civilization is conducive to happiness. Both Melvin and Ray worked hard on the question which was in- teresting although quite too abstract for any definite con- clusion to be reached. The de- cision of the lone judge award- ed the contest to the Citrus team by the narrowest margin. Aihambra at Citrus In the return debate at Cit- rus, Louise Howard and Roy Johnston defended the negative of the same question in most praiseworthy style. Oddly enough the negative speakers again, -this time Alhambra ' s. won the decision, but by a wider margin. Both Louise and Roy did quite well, and by copping the decision split the series, which victory kept Ai- hambra in the championship running. Puente at Aihambra The next debate was with Puente Union High School here with our boys. Donald Moye and Terry Harmon, defending the negative of the question. Resolved: That the 13-month calendar should be adopted throughout the world. Terry and Don met the Puente team argument for argument, and Puente went down to an ig- nominous defeat. 156 Southern California Debate League As a foreword to the following review of the season, it well may be mentioned that in the Southern California League — the strongest prep league in the west — the varsity debate squad has won two and lost one. In the San Gabriel Valley League the local junior varsity vanquished all rivals to win the pennant for the year. Alhambra at San Diego The first debate engagement of the season was held at San Diego and was attended by a large local delegation. The team chosen in the tryouts. held earlier in the semester, was Phyllis Norton, the first girl to win the Debate Tryouts. and Raymond Rees. Alhambra most successfully upheld the Affirma- tive of the Question: Resolved, that the participation of women in industry has proved more beneficial than detrimental. Meeting the team which scored runner-up position in last year ' s championship debate. Phyllis and Ray fought with unusual ability, completely out-debating the opposition. Phyllis, by this time a two year veteran, was most effective and as first speaker, from the very outset placed the border school team on the defensive. Raymond Rees, now also a debater of two years experience, performed admirably in his refutation period to close his high school debating career in most praiseworthy style. This debate marked the second and last appearance of the Phyllis Norton-Ray Rees combination which has as many vict ories to its credit. Alhambra at Long Beach Phvllis Norton and Roy Johnston, a successful veteran from competition in San Gabriel Valley League, in the next debate met Long Beach Poly, this year ' s champions. The question discussed at Long Beach was: Resolved, that this house should endorse the public ownership and operation of all power sites. Putting up a terrific battle on the affirmative, the local varsity went down to a glorious defeat, score: 3-0 in favor of Long Beach. In this last appearance of her forensic career, Phyllis ' remarkable oratory and handling of material justified her being called " the best girl debater Al- hambra has ever seen. " Roy, receiving his baptism of fire in the Southern California league, proved his debate ability to all, and made us wish he weren ' t to graduate. We went into this Long Beach debate with high hopes of continuing on to a championship, but we were beaten fairly by a better team. The final interscholastic meeting of the season was an engagement with Los Angeles High School, last year ' s champion. This final debate was made 157 s ?5 Southern California Debate League home coming night for A. H. S. alumni debaters, and was also Parents Night. Invitations were of- fered the parents of the students and as a result of this effort, the auditorium was packed with an audi- ence of 1500. The debate and oratorical awards of the year were presented and the A. H. S. Band offered a concert. SI IPMJX. C.„ach PHYLLIS NORTON HI Y MOM) REES HOY JOHNSTON ROBERT NORTH The question discussed was: " Resolved, that ife imprisonment without power of pardon or parole by any agency (except where innocence is estab- lished) should be substituted for capital punishment in the State of California. Defending the Negative. Alhambra ' s representatives were Roy Johnston and Bob North, the veteran campaigner of three years of inter-scholastic years of competition. The debate was one of the closest fought affairs of the season, but Alhambra won out by a score of 3 to 0. Roy performed in top notch manner, his out- standing delivery and fiery attitude, speaking highly of his advancement in but one year of active debat- ing. His refutation period was particularly impres- sive. North, closing three years of debate triumphs, takes his place among Alhambra ' s stars. North won the Clark Trophy for the outstanding debater last season and was ineligible for such competition this year: in this debate he upheld his standard of debate excellence. Johnston and North formed a most or- ganized, smooth working and formidable debate team. These three debaters in themselves show the conscientions work of Mr. Shipman. the Coach, whose experience and knowledge of the art of de- bate were the deciding fundamental factors. 158 ' ' i ' . A y rf i r ih - y I " . ilJU h ,5 ' , lii w . iM iA V (J fV Art Department Activities WHEELER W.1LUC.E iinusox BVTTI.KI ll.l.n With the idea of something " new and different " in view, Mr. Bonar ' s commercial art classes entered the Poultry Show Poster Contest instead of the usual Orange Show Contest. The competition was opened to all the high schools of Southern Califor- nia and out of the seven posters which were entered by Alhambra. four won prizes. Those receiving prizes were Sarah Wheeler, third: Joe Wallace, fourth; William Wolfson, sixth; and Ralph Butter- field, fourteenth. The other tenth year class under Miss Gentle ' s direction designed the posters and program cover for the senior play, " Green Stockings " as well as for the operetta. The Show Card class has proven its value in en- tering all activities with its cards of advertising. Two new courses have brought much interest to the art students, one given by Mrs. Cavanaugh in book-binding, and the other by Mrs. Smith in pot- tery. In addition to these crafts a group of A. H. S. art students wove linen towels, coats, suits, scarfs, and some sparkling evening bags fashioned of silk and metallic thread. Almost every period the hammers of Mr. Powell ' s classes in metal craft were most active in making their wares of copper and pewter. The metal craft classes of Mrs. Smith entered a new activity in publishing class work in the Design magazine. To sum up the year of art activities the Sixth Annual Art Exhibit was given in June. Each class with its various types of work was represented; out- standing artists and art directors judged the work. P.-T. A. awards were presented to those having the finest work. 160 Annual Art Staff The busiest C.R. in A.H.S. com- posed of the Annual Art Staff, met under the efficient guidance of its advisor. Mr. Bonar. and the art edi- tor, Mary Emma Sylvester. The staff of faithful workers in- cluded Dorothy Lewis, assistant art editor; Sarah Wheeler, cartoon edi- tor; Joe Wallace, publicity manager; Bernice Beckley. assistant editor and business manager; Elizabeth Hom- righausen. Jean Harmon, and Elmo Gillette. Study of well designed and or- ganized books and annuals preceded their part of the planning of " The Alhambran. " Mary Emma Sylvester, art editor, conferred with printers and book- binders, and helped select paper and colors. She assigned each member work. Long hours were spent after school cutting and mounting pictures and snapshots. The annual art staff has shared its responsibility in the production of " The Alhambran " for you.

With Miss Shropshire as general director. Miss Walker as dramatics coach, Mrs. Clements as director of the chorus, Mrs. Beebe and Mr. Ulmer assisting with the Girls ' and Boys ' Glee Clubs and Senior Orchestra, success was assured from the very first rehearsal. The excellent performance of the cast, the reality of the settings, and the wonderful spirit which existed within the entire group, all contributed a great deal in making this opera the best that has ever been presented in the Alhambra High School. There was not a slow moment in the entire performance. The music was exceptionally fine, and the plot was very interesting. The remarkably well-trained voices of the principals added greatly to the perfection for which the Music Department strives in the presentation of the operas. Ruth Smith and Max Vaughn were very charming as the heroine. Bar- barita Alvarado. and the hero. " Smiling Charlie " Harrington, a daring Pony Express Rider. Jack Herman gave a very realistic interpretation of the villain. Don Pedro Carranza. Others in the cast were: Bob Stump. Ilah Daugherty. Beatrice Salazar. Alonzo Moore. Bob Zetlmaier. Frank Crandall, Marcella Gleeson, Alma Cornwall, Joe Phillips, James Dobbins, Joe Cosand. Robert Bould. and Oliver Legg. 164 Band It has been said that there are three classes of musicians: the very few who create music, the larger number who perform it, and the great class who listen to it. It is a recognized fact that the intelligent listener brings to the musical program as valuable a part as does the skilled performer. Realizing the importance of music in the curriculum. Miss Shropshire has spared no effort to secure for Alhambra the best. The many classes available to students interested in music have done a great deal to encourage and develop musical talent. The Music Department is one of the busiest in school, for there is prac- tically no program or production presented in school which does not require the assistance of this department. One of the most popular musical organizations in the Alhambra High School is the band, which is directed by Mr. Ulmer. From this organization, two smaller groups, a brass quartet and a flute trio, have been selected, and have furnished many programs this year for community and school affairs, such as class meetings, service club meetings, and other club programs. The Music Department of the Alhambra High School also offers classes in all wind and string instruments, and piano, which are taught each day. In many cases, instruments are loaned to students. When sufficient progress has been made by the pupils in these classes, the orchestras and band offer further interest and opportunity for advancement. 165 The Senior Girls ' Glee Club The Girls ' Senior Glee Club, directed by Mrs. Clements, is an organiza- tion composed of fifty-two girls, selected by Mrs. Clements and Miss Shrop- shire for the blending and tone quality of their voices. The girls are all chosen from the Junior Glee Clubs, after a suitable try-out. The girls in the Senior Glee Club start working on three-part songs at the beginning of the school year and soon have a number of songs memorized and perfected to a degree where they are suitable for presentation at many local programs. This year the girls have sung for the Armistice Day Program, the Parent Teachers ' Association, and the Teachers ' Institute during Christmas vacation. Often during the year the girls memorize songs to sing as solos before the glee club. These solos, which really are individual voice tests, often reveal a surprising number of very good voices. Besides the Opera, the most interesting event of the year was the concert presented April first, in the evening, for the California Music Supervisors ' Convention, in the Philharmonic Auditorium. The Alhambra High School Senior Glee Clubs and those of seven other high schools of Los Angeles and vicinity made up a chorus of four hundred, which sang four numbers. Hester Coolidge was chosen one of the four accompanists for the chorus, and Ruth Smith was selected as one of the twenty girls soloists. President Beatrice Salazar Vice-President RuTH Smith Secretary and Treasurer Hester Coolidge 166 The Boys ' Senior Glee Club The Boys ' Senior Glee Club is an exclusive group composed of forty- eight boys chosen from the Junior glee clubs. Mrs. Beebe, director of the glee club, takes especial care to see that all parts are properly balanced. The boys memorize many difficult four-part songs during the year, and are in constant demand to sing at local programs. This year they have sung several times during assemblies, and have presented a program at the Alham- bra Women ' s Club. Another interesting event of the year was the presentation of The Golden Trail. The boys enjoyed working on the opera, as it offered them an opportunity to display their talents as bold, bad bandits, cowboys, and suave Spanish dons. Besides the senior organizations, junior classes in glee club and orchestra are open to students interested in performing, and from these classes, the members of the senior organizations of the high school are selected, w ith ref- erence to their ability to sing or play, to read music, and to follow their director. Dependability also plays an important part in this selection. President Luther Everingham Vice-President Harry Hunter Secretary and Treasurer Frank Smith Librarian Joe McCann 167 Senior Orchestra ' ■■ " . ; -■■■■■■ " . ' ' The Senior Orchestra, under the direction of Mr. Ulmer.has presented many fine musical programs during this year, and has achieved a degree of perfection unequalled by any Alhambra High School orchestra in previous years. The name. Senior Orchestra, does not mean that the orchestra is made up entirely of members of the Senior class, but that the members of the Senior Orchestra are mostly upper division students, and have therefore had more instrumental training. This orchestra is composed of students chosen from the Junior Orchestra. The Senior Orchestra has provided e.xcellent music for both Senior plays, the Senior Play preview, the Junior Play preview, Commencements, the Fire Prevention program, the Masonic Education Week program, and the opera, " The Golden Trail. " The orchestra not only accompanied the opera, but also presented a fifteen-minute program before each performance. The work of the Music Department is outlined to fit not only the needs of those students who enjoy participation and desire it as an avocational in- terest, but also for those students who are considering music as their vocation. Students who are especially interested in orchestra work are also given oppor- tunities to conduct some of the rehearsals, and. through contact with the library of orchestra music belonging to the school, to become acquainted with much of the world ' s greatest literature for orchestra and instrumental ensembles. 1 ' : 168 .- n :i A. Junior Orchestra The Alhambra schools are fortunate in having a complete course in musical training throughout the public school system, beginning with the kindergarten classes, and continuing through all the elementary and High School classes. The training in music which the students receive in the ele- mentary schools is an excellent foundation for the more advanced work in music which is to be had in high school classes. The grammar school glee clubs and the Elementary Orchestra offer very good preparation for the glee clubs and orchestras of the high school. This complete musical training course is equal to those of many large cities, and is one of which we should be very proud. The Junior Orchestra is imp ortant because it is the foundation for the Senior Orchestra. The students who are interested in ensemble playing may first receive their training in this orchestra, so that they may be prepared for more advanced work in the Senior Orchestra. Additional music classes which offer other than instrumental work are available to the music student. Miss Abbey has charge of classes in sight- singing, and harmony, which give the student the opportunity to develop his talent and originality in writing music and arranging music for various types of presentation. Classes in history and music appreciation, in charge of Miss Shropshire enlarge the music background and develop the power to understand what the composer is endeavoring to portray. 169 as reat continent- al expresses combine flasli - ' rifid ileiicsof a.h .liave built in ttiemseiyes these essentiak of 5P0IX and achievements Yell Leaders We, the yeil leaders, are glad that there comes once a year an opportunity to express our sincere thanks to the Student Body, and to the faculty for the splendid response and cooperation we have received in maintaining a loyal Moor spirit. We feel that the past year has been a successful one. There were many times that the response was not as great as usual, but probably there were no motives for yelling. At any rate a school ' s spirit should be judged by its ability to respond when the support is needed the most. It is easy to yell when your team is on top, but the test comes when your team is behind. It takes spirit to support a losing team and congratulate a defeated one. But win or lose 100 per cent Moors were right there to give that support and congratulate those fighting warriors. We hope that in the years to come Alhambra will still maintain its fighting spirit, that it will still be recognized and envied by the other schools in the league. A school spirit such as Alhambra ' s is not worthy of dying, but de- serves to be built up and cherished by Moors who are loyal. It takes hard work and hard fighting, but it is a treasure when accomplished Fiqht Al- hambra! 171 Footba Capt ains Ink Wotkyns Chuck Whitham Alhambra High ' s 1930 football club did not win any champion- ship, however they finished well at the top. Through the expert guid- ance o[ George Hobbs. head foot- ball coach, a team was " pounded " together that the student body should have been proud of. His untiring efforts have always showh good results. The team has never had a chance to thank everyone con- nected with this season ' s success. The work of Bob Pursell. assist- ant coach. Dr. Hix. the faculty and student body, not excluding the ardent interest of many of the townspeople, has been greatly ap- preciated during the season. I feel certain that all of the grad- uating players will join in wishing Coach Hobbs ' and Captain Whit- ham ' s 1931 team the best of suc- cess next season. Haskell Wotkyns. Captain. As Captain-elect of the 1932 Moor Varsity football team, I wish to extend my heartiest congratula- tion to link Watkyns and his 1931 squad for the excellent team work and marvelous cooperation that ex- isted between team and Captain. Although a championship was not won, the season was essentially a successful one. There will be a large number of letter men who have made extra- ordinary records in this year ' s sea- son returning next year, and with their help and the driving energy of Coach Hobbs, we have hopes of a very successful y.ear in ' 32. Charles Whitham. Captain-Elect. 172 Glendale ' s Fighting Dynamiters furnished the opening tilt of the 1930 season for the Mohammendans by taking a 7-0 defeat. Although the score indicates a close game the Blaster squad was never inside the Moor thirty-yard line. Whitham made the first touchdown of the year on a line smash that culminated a forty-six yard drive. Earl Nix reeled off one run of twenty-two yards on the scoring drive. Three touchdowns were lost to the Moors through the " breaks of the game. " Came the newcomer to the Coast League with fire in his eye to kick-off. Captain Ink Wotkyns of the Moors on the opening kick-off ran ninety yards for a touchdown. Before the slaughter was over the score stood 41-7. Nix, Wotkyns. Duncan. Cameron, and Lionberger all contributed. The second big thrill of the game came as the contribution of a hnesman. Eugene Duncan, who blocked a pass and ran 31 yards for six points. 173 In our next game, against Woodrow Wilson, the 57-0 score was the second largest e ' er recorded by a Moor eleven. On the tenth play Nix crashed over the final white line. Earl added another score when, with perfect interference, he ran 35 yards. Tom McDcrmott ran 55 yards for a touchdown. Rod Cameron made the longest run from .scrimmage of the year for a touchdown. Wotkyns scored twice. McDermott went in from .second string backfield work and scored twice. Halet scored once. Against Hullertons Red-skins, George Hobbs ' team chalked up a 32-0 victory. The varsity played less than half the game. The first half was scoreless. The Redskins presented a stiff, battling defense against the over-confident Moormen. The .second string played the first quarter. Fullerton kicked off for the second half. The third play found Alhambra lining up to kick for the point after touchdown. Witham. Nix. McDcrmott. and Cameron scored in the ..order named. 174 oeoEH The game that was predicted to almost settle the Coast League championship ended with a •12-0 victory for San Diego. Coach Orion Landreth ' s Southern California champs handed the Moors their second defeat of the year. The spectacular game ended 18 to 14. Long Beach scored twice in the opening half, but in the second half Nix ran 7-i yards. The end of the second half brought a two point lead for the Mohammedans. With three minutes to play, the Jackrabbits put across the winning touchdown. In closing a highly successful season the Galloping Mudhorses from Alhambra trampled " Ye old rival the Tiger " under ground with a 19 to score. South Pasadena kicked off to Ink Wotkyns. Nine plays after the kickoff Earl Nix scored. On the first play of the final quarter, Rod Cameron scored. The final score of the game was placed on the record book as lumbering Tab Lionberger intercepted a pass. 175 Class B B aatTetb oti ■ The season started out with a victory over Glendale and chances for championship were good; but the next game, which was with Compton, proved the downfall of the Bishops for championship. The game with Compton was a hard fought battle against a heavier team. The Alhambra team had a stroke of luck when Walt Sefton broke through the line, blocked a punt, caught it and ran down the field. The ball changed hands twice on this run but finally ended up on the one-yard line in the Alhambra " B ' s " possession. It took four plays to make the touchdown. After that the Compton superior weight proved too much for the Alhambra team and the score at the end of the game was Compton 13. Alhambra 6. The Alhambra " B ' s " played good games the rest of the season; however, the spirit of an unbeaten team was lacking and Alhambra turned up about third or fourth place in the league. The players were: Ed Hallock. at center; John DeLand. Dick Schoon- over, Roy Brown, and Stockton, at guards: Walt Sefton and Dale Dodds at tackle: Bob Archibald. Dario Miller and Cliff Ferrell at ends: Chas. Pekas and Bob Hautz at fullback: Powell. George Abajaine. and Ma.x Hoff at half- back; Bud Johnson and Ray Chestine at quarterback. Ed Hallock, John De- Land, George Abajaine and Bud Johnson were two-year men. Coach Hess has coached the Alhambra Class B football team three years and has always turned out good teams. 176 The 1931 Class C football team ended the season in second place in the league standings, having defeated all competition with the single exception of the Long Beach Bunnies. In the final contest of the year, with the league bunting as the spoils of war, the Moors dropped the verdict, 7 to 6. These were the first points tallied against the Grumblesmen during the season. In the preliminary tilt of the schedule the Mohammedans took on the Glendalians and trounced them by a 7 to count. The second game found Compton opposing the Arabs. The Tartars were sent home on the short end of a 7 to score. The Fullerton Indians proved easy going for the Morrocans and were subdued by a score of 21 to 0. Woodrow Wilson also fell by the wayside when they met the Alhambrans and suffered a H to defeat. The last game saw the Jackrabbits invading Alhambra to do battle for the championship of the league. Each team scored once and the slight margin of a conversion separated them when the final gun went off. For the first time in the season the Moors had failed to convert and that omission lost the flag. The team this year was most fortunate in having a backfield composed of two-year lettermen. These fellows played a good hard game, as was wit- nessed when opposing coaches called off a couple of practice games due to the fact that the Grumblesmen played too hard. In a game with the El Monte Lions the Arabs emerged victorious. The lettermen for the year were: Anzai, Anderson, Burton. Coffey. Charles. Curran. Horst. Heeb. Kittleson, Locke. Linke. McFate. Owen. Pep- pers. Stombaugh. Walker. Webster and Winterbottom. ItA V 177 Basketball Captaj y At tM ' end qflj our 1930S1 basketball season, AlhaOlhra held a low position in the league stand- ino ' s. but iv had tVie! satisfaction of knowing that ' ive had beaten, our old rival. South Pasadena, and had gii en f iV ' coasf league championship to Woodrow Wilson of Long Beach in one of the hardest enc urtters of the season. To begin the season we had five lettermen from last year, and with the help of other material. Coach Hess developed a fast team. We had successful practice games and started the season by beating Pasadena. This was fol- lowed by defeats at the hands of Glendale and Compton. Next we played Woodrow Wilson at Long Beach, who later won the coast league pennant, this game we lost by a satisfying score of 20 to 15. At this time we lost several men by graduation, but it did not stop us from winning the most im- portant game of the season — that with South Pasadena. The rest of our games were defeats, except the game ivith Fullerton. which we won in a very decisive manner. Now we are looking forward to a more successful season next year. We will have four lettermen back and some very promising material from the 130- pound team. With Coach Hess to guide us we are hoping to capture the next year ' s pennant. On behalf of the team. I wish to thank Coach Hess for his untiring efforts, and the Student Body for their support. I also wish to express my appreciation for their co-operation and fighting spirit. Arthur Boyd. Captain. 178 The Mohammedans traveled to the Crown City to open the league. Coach Hess started his first string and they played the entire game. Wellington and Zundell, aided by the stellar guarding of Boyd and Whitham. proved a little too much for the Bulldogs and came home with a 27 to 25 scalp hanging on their belt. The Hessmen next met the Dynamiters from Glendale. The Blasters, due to their having won the championship last year, were doped to win. After a rather hectic battle the final count was 38 to 20 in favor of the boys from the fastest growing city. Once more the Moors donned their traveling togs and made their way to Compton, the city that Orv Mohler and gang ruined back in ' 28 when they won the football flag. The Tartars remembered very distinctly and took adequate revenge by tromping on the Arabs by a tune of 33 to 23. 179 The Hcssmen went out of the league for their next opposition and tackled their old friends from South Pasadena. With Wellington and Boyd playing excellent basketball the Moham- medans clearly demonstrated their superiority and trounced the Tigers, 22 to 14. The Arabs continued their winning spree when they went up against the Indians. Rod Cameron, erstwhile football hero, who took the place left vacant when Zundcll graduated, played a fine game and helped complete the slaughter of the Redmen. The FuUerton team was forced to go home on the short end of a 32 to 14 count. The next opposition came from the hills surrounding San Diego. The Cavemen had a marvelous offense that was too difficult for the Moors to fathom and they .scored plenty often. Despite the fact that they were behind at the half, the Hilltoppers broke loose and swamped the Alhambrans 28 to 20. 180 The high-flying boys from Woodrow Wilson had not lost a game, and by virtue of a win over Giendale were conceded to be the cream of the league. They showed that they were when they heartlessly nosed out the Alhambra fellows by a score of 22 to 15. The last tilt of the season featured the Jackrabbits. The players were small and fast, living up to their names very well. The Bunnies retained their unbeaten record when they handed the Blue and Gold casaba artists a 39 to 24 trimming. The fellows earning letters this year were: Art Boyd. Harvey Wellington. Ted Zundell. Bill King. Charles " Chuck " Whitham. Walt Sefton, and Rod Cameron. The squad was also composed of Winkler, Walker, Ramsay, Salliday, Dardis, Harwick and Clayton. Much of the success attained by the basketballers is due to no less a personage than the great and noble Coach William, perhaps better known to the student body as Bill Hess. 181 Class B Basketball Coach Bob Pursell ' s Class B basketballers finished the league competition with official counting of two games won and four lost. The Pursellmen were entered in the Black Fox Military Academy Class B tournament and fought their way to the finals before being defeated. Whittier High School B ' s won the play-off game from the Moors. The lightweights lost the traditional battle with the South Pasadena Tigers. The 130-s opened the season against the Pasadenan squad and were defeated by a score of 19 to 9. The boys then came into their own and proceeded to decisively trim the Glendale Blasters to the tune of 21 to 10. The next week the Bs were defeated by the Compton five. After a game battle the Arabs emerged on the short end of a 26 to 13 score. The best show of basketball as it should be played, was put on by the Moors in their tilt with Woodrow Wilson. Although the Democrats managed to trounce the Alhambrans. the boys of the Blue and Gold gave a real exhi- bition of the casaba art. Fullerton proved easy meat for Coach Pursell ' s basketeers and were smeared by a count of 31 to 17. In the final game of the season the Long Beach Poly Bunnies took the Moors into camp by a 21 to 13 score. The lightweights took part in the Black Fox Military Academy tourna- ment and attained the final round before being eliminated. The Arabs smeared the California Military Academy five 38 to 1; defeated a Chinese team 19 to 12; met Saint John ' s Parochial School and trimmed their rivals 20 to 15. In the finals Whittier provided the competition and defeated the Alhambrans 38 to 22. 182 Class B Basketba The season just finished by the Moor Class C basketballers was not very successful from the standpoint of games won. Some excellent material was uncovered for future teams, however. The Hessmen only won twc games and lost five, counting the tilt with their old pals, the South Pasadena Kittens. Heeb, Winterbottom and Kittleson were the outstanding sharpshooters for the Arabs this year. To start the year ' s festivities, the Mohammedans traveled to the Million- aire City, Pasadena, and took the measure of the Bull Puppies by a 13 to 7 count. Glendale next provided the entertainment for the Alhambrans and stole the victory 20 to 9. Next on the program, the Compton Tartars fell before the superior basket work of the Morrocans. 22 to 6. Woodrow Wilson stopped the Moors. 15 to 13. Winterbottom tried hard to score enough points to win. but missed it by two. The lair of the Tiger, so well known to all loyal Alhambrans, was in- vaded by the little Arabs, but the Kittens were a little too strong and won a 18 to 16 victory. FuUerton trounced the Mohammedans by a 15 to 9 score, while the Long Beach Poly boys trained on the Hessmen by a 20 to 5 tally. Coach Hess had his hands full to take care of the varsity and the flea- weights together, but the team he put on the floor provided entertaining battles for the spectators. Some real basketeers were uncovered by the team this year. It served its purpose. Lettermen were as follows: Heeb, Bouett. West. Kittleson. Horst. Win- terbottom, Anzai, and Anderson. Olaasse and Porterfield completed the squad. 183 N iV ? 7 » t f B V r " " " j v«rfi | ( Varsity Track Alhambra has developed some stellar cinderpath artists this year. First and foremost, of course, is Captain Len Anderson, who broke the school record for the 220-yard low hurdles when he turned in the fast time of 25 seconds flat. The Mohammedans ' chances in the sprints are carried by a young fellow named Carnahan. In every meet so far this lad has garnered points. His spWiairy is the lOO and 220-yard dashes and the high jump. Jack Snodgrass, a freshman, broke the school record for the 880-yard run when he circled the track in two minutes and one and seven-tenths seconds. Another Moorish record was smashed when Rex Addis soared to 12 feet and six inches in the pole vault. Inky Wotkyns kept in step by shattering the school record for the broad jump. " Buttercup " cleared 21 feet and one and one-half inches. The meet with the Compton Tartars was nip and tuck alL the way and when the dust of battle had thinned a bit the score stood 58 to 55. The Arabs came into their own the following week and proceeded to take the Woodrow Wilson Democrats into camp. The final count was 64 to 47 with the Mohammedans ahead. Coach Grumbles and his men then traveled to Fullerton to do battle with the Indians, whom the Moors calmly scalped by a 67 to 46 victory. The Arabs took the trail and wended their way to the grey Castle-men ' s lair and met defeat of a rather sudden nature. The San Diegans proved a bit too strong for the Moorish cindermen and took the meet with a score of 78-34. In the final meet of the year the strong Long Beach Jackrabbits came to visit the Alhambrans and too their measures. The Grumbles protegees tried hard, but just couldn ' t garner the points necessary to win. 184 Class B Track Coach Kenneth Grumbles ' Class B track team won three meets, tied one and lost one, to finish the season in second place. The Moors lost their first meet with Glendale, tied the fracas with Woodrow Wilson and in turn defeated Fullerton. Compton, and Long Beach Poly. Many of the Mohammedan tracksters went through the league conflicts without meeting defeat in their respective events. Joe Nuccio, captain, was undefeated in the 100-yard dash, Elferdink ran through all opposition in the 660, and the relay team, composed of Nuccio, Blake, Smith and Stombaugh, did not lose a race. The first league meet was held with the Blasters and the Arabs suffered the only defeat of the season when the Dynamiters walked off with the decision 58 to 44. Woodrow Wilson of Long Beach was entertained by the Grumbles- men and when the dust of the conflict had cleared away the count stood 52-52. The Alhambra cindermen then entered into a series of successful tilts and in turn vanquished Fullerton 84 to 20; Compton, 62 to 42; and in the final con- test of the year Long Beach Poly succumber 53 j to SOjj. At the time of this writing the team was preparing for the Coast League preliminary try-outs and Coach Grumbles had high hopes of placing some of his best men. 185 Track Although the Class C track team did not show in the Coast League season this year, a wealth of material has afforded Coach Grumbles and his assistant, Hobbs, to look over and plan on a presentable club for next year. Material appeared from all classes with the exception of the Senior class. Freshmen were most numerous on the roster, insuring a strong club as years go by. Class C competition is scarce in the Coast League due to the Junior col- leges which do not have a lower division grade from which midget material is most abundant. However, when competition is found by the Moors, it is tough, and hard to beat. In the past season the Moorlets won two meets and dropped three. Bigger things are expected from next season ' s midgets when experience coupled with material will be on hand for tutoring by the mentors. 186 Baseball Captain The baseball season has been a successful one this year, although quite a few games were lost. The team worked hard and cooperated well in fighting to bring a championship home to A. H. S. It is to be congratulated on its faithful efforts. The ones who have been the foundation for the work done this season by both team and cap- tain are the coaches. Mr. Purcell and Mr. Miller have spent much of their time and energy in putting forth the season of baseball which we have had. The games have been hard fought and well won in the cases when Alhambra has come forth victorious. In past years Alhambra has not been exceptionally victorious in the great American game. However, next year the Moor batters have high hopes of doing big things on the diamond. With a few of this year ' s letter men re- turning and the driving grind put on the newcomers by Mr. Purcell and Mr. Miller, it is a certainty that A. H. S. will see a championship baseball team ready to defend it. We have been much encouraged by the support given us by the student body of Alhambra. They turned out for the games in very good numbers, and rooted enthusiastically. Much of the spirit shown at the games was due to the Moor rooting section. We send our wishes for a very successful season next year to the captain- elect and his team. John Winterbottom. Captain. 187 i%ono rt e AIhambra ... o ' - Ac . ... p. y.p pp.- ■■ ■ i» ttiel.Comnt-nT. ■ I Ill 1 1 I « ■ ' ??i«. ALHAMBRA H— GLENDALE 2 In the league opener the Red Castle was invaded by the Blastcr.s. Nix had an excellent day on the mound, whiffing 12 of the would-be hitters and let the invaders down with seven bingles. The Pursellmen had a great day with the willow and garnered 14 tallies to take their first game. ALHAMBRA 15— COMPTON 1 The horsehidcrs traveled to the hide-out of the Tartars for their next competition, and trounced the Lions badly. Earl Nix turned in his best showing when he struck out thirteen of the Comptonitcs and held the rest to but seven hits. Woosely and Escarcega bingled often and helped the Moors gather a total of 17 hits. 188 1? ALHAMBRA 16— FULLERTON 3 The Moroccans entertained the Fullerton Indians and then sent them home highly dis- satisfied with the final count. Nix fanned four of the Redskins but aided by stellar fielding on the part of his teammates allowed the Fullerton boys but eight hits. Another swell day at bat was enjoyed by the Arabs, who gathered in 16 runs and 23 hits. ALHAMBRA 2— SAN DIEGO 6 The fracas with the Hilltoppers was looked upon as the acid test for the Mohammedans. Although the Grey Castle men took the verdict the game was evenly contested throughout. except for the fourth inning in which is the visitors obtained four runs on as many bingles. 189 , ALHAMBRA 2— WOODROW WILSON 7 In the game with the Democrats the effects of the San Diego trouncing was plainly discernible. The Moors were plainly demoralized by their defeat and the Wilsonites walked off with a 7 to 2 victory. Potts started the game and Nix relieved him later in the tilt. ALHAMBRA 3— LONG BEACH 7 The last game of the season found the Arabs at the beach city. The Pursellmen had come out of their slump, but a disastrous second frame in which the home boys tallied five counters on two bingles spelled ruin for the Alhambrans. The Jackrabbits scored seven times on eight hits, while the Arabs were forced to be content with three counters and seven hits. 190 Tenni _3- Coach R. E. Home and his Alhambra racketeers completed a very success- ful season. By reason of a series of brilliant victories the team took their second consecutive Coast League banner. In the league play, Glendale was downed 20 to 5. Mako being the only Blaster victor. Compton, Fullerton and Woodrow Wilson were white-washed in turn by 25 to scores. In the battle for the flag the Long Beach Jackrabbits were vanquished 18 to 7. As San Diego defaulted to the Moors, the Arabs finished the season undefeated. The outstanding match of the year was the battle between the second doubles teams of the Mohammedans and the Long Beach Bunnies. The Bunnies took the first set 1-6, and at two separate times had the score at point- match in the second set. Fighting brilliantly, the Alhambrans finally took the set by a 22-20 count. The Moors came back strong to win the third set and match by a 6-3 score. In a series of practice games the Hornemen defeated Hoover, wh ' o won the championship of the Football league; El Monte, who took the flag in the Valley league, and many other schools, including the Cal Tech and Occidental Frosh teams. In a battle with the South Pasadena Tigers the Moors lost by a 20-5 score. The Arabs entered the Southern California playoffs as the representatives of the Coast League, and Coach Home ex pected his men to make a good showing. The pennant-winning team was composed of Buck, Hunt, Raymond, Wallace. Buford. McKay. Tinckle and Belt. Thomas Hawkins served as -manager of the team during the season. 191 Golf The Alhambra golf team had a very successful season, winning the Coast League banner and being rated as outstanding contenders for the Southern California golf championship. The Moor divot diggers won all their league matches with ease. The opening tussle took place at the Fox Hills course, home grounds of the Glendale Dynamiters. The Arabs won this match even though the Blasters had the advantage of playing on their home course. The San Diego squad forfeited to the Mohammedans. Compton and Fullerton had no teams so the Alhambrans had credit for victories over these schools. The big match of the year took place at the San Gabriel Country Club, with the Woodrow Wilson golfers furnishing the competition. The playing of Manuel " Ace " Cabral. Moor first man. and the Democrat star. Joe Nichols, Long Beach junior open champ, provided plenty of thrills for the enthusiastic galley. After being one down for nearly the entire match. Ace came through and won the last two holes to win his match and insure an Alhambra victory. The final score was 3 to 13 2- Long Beach Poly was the final league opponent of the Arabs and suc- cumbed readily to the sharp shooting proteges of Coach David H. Fryer. The local squad won many practice matches, defeating Avalon, Beverly Hills, and Muir Tech. The team was composed of " Ace " Cabral. first man, Dario Miller. Dave Merrill, Bill Nary, Ed Hughes, and Rod Cameron. 194 Wrestling Wrestling has been dropped from the hst of regular league competition at Alhambra this year. Despite this handicap many of the young bone-crushers of A.H.S. got together and organized a free lance team. Three meets were participated in, and a team was entered in the Southern California eliminations. Although the team did not win any of their meets, John Steward won the Southern California championship in the 165-pound division and Irving Fisher, Captain of the Alhambra squad, won second place in the 125-pound division. In a meet with Pasadena Junior College the Arabs came but a second best by virtue of a 34 to 12 count. Whitter took the measure of the Moham- medans by a score of 48 to 32. In the final tilt of the season the El Monte Lions dropped the Redcastlemen 36 to 28. In the Southern California try-outs many of the Hessmen went to the semi-finals before being eliminated. 195 - ' Gym Club The Gym Club has had a fairly good season this year, winning four out of five meets. The most important thing accomplished was the verification of the " tradition " the tumblers have of not being beaten in any high school meet for three years. During the past year, this group has represented Alhambra High School in exhibitions at the Pasadena " Y, " Alhambra Elks Club, South Pasadena High School. Boys ' All Nations Club of Los Angeles, Carlsbad Health Show, and many other prominent places. Due to contradictory schedules, we did not have any meets that we would have liked, but in spite of this, twelve men managed to elevate themselves sufficiently to win letters. As only two lettermen were lost through graduation last year and two this year, it looks as if the " veteran " Gym Club will have a good season next year. Captain Ross Hastings Manager George Anderson 196 Play Day Alhambra was hostess this year, on December 6, to seven other high schools in Southern Cahfornia. The schools invited were: Long Beach Poly. Glendale, South Pasadena, Pasadena, Monrovia. Herbert Hoover, and Burbank. The Alhambra girls co-operated with a great spirit and put over the event, which turned out to be a successful day. Preparation was in charge of com- mittees headed by the Gym teachers, who had a group of girls under them: Mrs. Crosswhite, general preparation; Mrs. Cook, decorations and luncheon; Miss Todd, mixer and afternoon program; Miss Canavan, sports; Miss Linden, programs; Miss Tager, luncheon tickets. Dorothea Jarecki. president of G. A. A,, presided in a most pleasing manner. Everyone seemed willing to work to make the day the success that it was, perhaps eager to return to the other schools the hearty welcome we have received from them in past year. On May 2 the Alhambra girls were guests of the Pasadena High School to a Play Day. Alhambra had a large representation of girls who participated in the various events which were offered. Pasadena girls well know how to put over a successful Play Day as everyone felt as though they wouldn ' t have missed the fun we had for the world. 198 Tenn IS The classes are divided into three divisions: beginning, intermediate, and Tennis Club. The beginners practice for several weeks on the hand-ball courts; in this way they get the fundamental technique, which is essential in playing a good game of tennis. They must also pass certain outlined tests before they receive thei r points. After they pass their tests and show enough ability, they are advanced to the intermediate class, where they continue their practice. The Tennis Club is composed of experienced girls. Margaret Glasscock captain this year, is a fine player and deserves a great deal of credit for her excellent work, spirit and co-operation. There are many other girls running a close second to Margaret. " Unlike other sports for girls, tennis is not confined to any particular season. The girls of the Tennis Club are expected to practice two nights a week. For their practice they receive 50 points a quarter or 100 a term. Miss Lucille Linden is the very able coach, and under her careful guidance the girls make wonderful progress. " — Margaret Glasscock, Captain. This year there have been many additional activities for the girls: the ladder tournament, by which they win their places in ranking matches with El Monte and Huntington Park; a three school Tennis Play Day with Muir Tech and South Pasadena; and the mixed double match with the A.H.S. boys tennis team. 199 Volley Ball Volley ball which is the first sport offered by the G. A. A. for sport lovers, opened with a bang this year. Keen competition, good sportsmanship, and excellent playing, were the features of this first sport of the 1930- ' 31 season. The juniors won the championship, after defeating the seniors in a hard fought contest. The juniors ' captain, " Bea " Salazar, was very efficient, as were the other captains, Charlotte Corey, senior: Sheila McDonough, sophomore; Ramsey Taylor, freshman. " The junior team won the volley ball championship after a lot of work. We had good material and good team work. Every girl played her best and the two outstanding players were Kathryn Milne and Maurine Heder. The juniors had the support of their classmates; the turnout being especially good at the junior-senior game. We, the juniors, owe our success to our student coach, Gladys Huff. " — Beatrice Salazar. All in all, we feel as though we had a most successful season in Volley Ball. The games were both interesting and e.xciting. We girls not only learned to play the game better, but also learned more about the " sportsman- ship " attitude toward one another. Even though Volley Ball is only a minor sport, there were many girls anxious to take part in our inter-class games. This sport was the beginning of an all-round successful year in Girls Sports. 200 Basketball With a large number of enthusiastic girls ready to play the best kind of a game they could, why shouldn ' t we have had the best kind of a season in Basketball? The classes all had good turnouts, especially the lower classmen, who had enough to split up into A and B9 ' s and A and BIO ' s. Thus we played more games, which naturally increased the spirit. The seniors won the championship in basketball, after defeating all of the other teams. The most exciting games of the season, and perhaps the most looked forward to, was the Junior-Senior game which was held at the gym on Thursday. December 11, 1930. The seniors won after a hard and scrappy fight. Following our plan of last year, we had another night game this year, which was enjoyed by all who participated. We were very fortunate in securing two referees from the Whittier College Physical Education Depart- ment, which added to the enthusiasm. We had a good team this year, capably coached by Miss Todd. Every girl played her best, and sportsmanship pre- vailed throughout all of the games — the aim of all G. A. A. members. Basketball as a rule is a game that the girls take more interest in and this year was no exception. It was noticed that the spirit on the side-lines was particularly keen — always ready to co-operate and do what was best for their team. 201 Speedball The ball goes zipping from center to inside and on out to the end to be carried down the field for a goal — such is that speedy game Speedball, which is truly lots of fun. This is a game that calls for cooperation of mind and body, quick thinking and quick action. One advantage of Speedball over many other games is the fact that it takes eleven for a team, thus giving oppor- tunity for play to a greater number of girls at one time. This same fact also calls for the necessity of carefully planned teamwork — teamwork is the founda- tion of every victory whether in sports or the bigger game that we all must play, the game of Life. There are many girls in the lower classes who should develop into ex- cellent athletes, and by next season beat the present championship team, the Juniors. Here ' s hoping the Freshman girls will start in early with that thought in mind. There ' s always a chance, you know ! As usual, the most interesting and exciting game this season was that played by the Juniors and Seniors. Although the Seniors played very hard, the Juniors came out with the larger score, thus winning two out of three championships in one semester. " Good luck next year. Juniors. " " Although the Juniors started the season with only sixteen girls, we all worked together and at last came out on top with the championship after defeating the Freshmen 22-6, Sophs 29-3, and the Seniors 13-7. The team ' s manager was Connie Decker, and our coach was Mrs. Cook, to whom we owe a great deal of credit for her work with us, " — La Verne Evans. Captain. Here ' s lots of success to all girls who shall participate in sports at A.H.S. " next year, may they have as much fun as we have had this 1930-31 season. 202 Hockey - r ( a Since our hockey season is just beginning, we cannot determine the results, but by the looks of things, it seems as though the Seniors should find no trouble in " copping " the championship. Hockey is one of the fastest games we play. It not only requires effi- ciency in handling the stick, but also plenty of wind and endurance. Tech- nique is especially important in hockey to play an exciting and interesting game. Thus, most of the interclass practices are used in preparing the girls to be able to group the fundamentals. So when games are started the actual strength of the respective teams is still more or less undetermined and the " dope " is often completely upset before the end of the season. Freshmen do not play hockey, as they have no training in grammar school, and it takes fully one year to get into the game. This fact should not keep the girls from coming out for this kind of game as they can still play after leaving high school by joining a team belonging to the Southern California Hockey Association. Too many students fail to follow up the opportunities offered them in physical culture after leaving school and so soon lose that alertness of action that goes with physical perfection. In other words, girls, continue your athletic activities after leaving dear old A.H.S. and keep that " schoolgirl buoyancy of step. " The Alhambra girls have always taken a special interest in hockey. Last season there were three championship games played off. all of which ended in a tie; thus, we see, hockey can create a great deal of enthusiasm. __Alhambra girls, too, always play an excellent game of hockey at the Play Day. 203 Basketball After a day ' s grind through geometry, chemistry, U. S. or French, a good game of baseball, America ' s game, at the end of the day is a good wind-up. The pitcher pitches her best ball over the plate, and is accidentally hit. the ball goes out in the field for a home-run — another " Babe Ruth " in our midst. This game can be interesting if the girls get back of it with that spirit that puts it across. As baseball is the last sport of the season, we cannot determine the final results of the games. However, we are looking forward to one grand season with plenty of home-runs, strike-outs, and of course, errors, to make the games peppy and exciting. There will not only be our own interclass games, which we play after school, but also baseball in gym classes, and a Play Day at Pasadena to which we will take a team " to bring home the bacon. " Another home-run, which scored more than any other, was hit this year by the girls when they started out a most successful season in athletics. There were large turnouts, the spirit of cooperation always prevalent, and a general desire among the girls to do their best, all of which helped to make the 1930-31 season a successful one. 204 k % Y- ' Natural Dancing Natural dancing is an element in developing body balance and poise. There were three large classes this year, thus one can see that it is a popular course. The beginning class had two types of work: free rhythms, which include the skips, runs, polka, and slides; the child rhythms: such as the Shadows, London Bridge, Statues, and many others. These classes must also work out a project in the form of a note book, which contains the full index of work with the reference for each, and illustrations. This last year, the girls handed in some very artistic books which are on display in the gym. The advanced class is open to all girls who have had a year of beginning dancing. In this class one finds a great deal of real talent, out of which Inez Rees has been selected to represent Natural Dancing for her fine interpre- tation of the dance. The advanced class this year used scarfs for the first time as prat of their daily program. They were made of gayly colored silk material that harmon- ized with their costumes. In this class the girls are given the music, and they work out the patterns and steps. It is more of the interpretative type of work. As their project they worked out their own dance; set it to suitable music; and presented it before the class. The splendid handling of the instruction on the part of Miss Todd and the other gym teachers deserves special commendation. 205 Archery, an ancient sport, and one which has an interesting history, is steadily gaining in popularity among the girls of A. H. S. Moreover, it is becoming a leading physical educational activity all over the United States; the women in the leading colleges have taken a great fancy to it. The Alhambra girls have taken more interest this year than ever before. People used to look upon this sport as a corrective activity, only those participating who did not have strength to play such games as speedball. basket ball, and others, but now since its true worth has been found many girls are taking special interest in the sport of William Tell and Robin Hood. Archery is very good exercise and exceptionally good training in posture and accuracy. The Archery club members have recently been awarded a very attractive felt emblem for their skill. Different colored ribbons are given for each fifty points added to a Columbian Round score. These badges created more enthusiasm among the girls, who are really working hard for them. The girls have also made their own bow strings, some of which were very good. By having a hand in the preparation of their equipment, they seem to take more pride in coming for it. Archery is a sport which can be enjoyed at all times by both young and old. and due to its increasing popularity there have been springing up in the vicinity of Los Angeles, many ranges of which are open to the public. 206 Leadership is what its name impHes, a group of girls selected by the physical education teachers as possessing qualities that go to make up leaders in girls ' athletic activities. Those girls who desire to be in leadership sign up. and thirty of these girls, who the gym teachers think will receive the most benefit from the work, are chosen. The girls must have a merit score of 90, a grade of " 1 " in gym, and a natural aptitude for gym activities. They are given special instruction in the handling of gym classes until in time they are able to take any class in physical instruction at a moment ' s notice. They also act as officials at school meets between the grammar schools. and at interclass games. This is particularly interesting and valuable experi- ence to the girls as many of them intend to be physical education teachers. Through this leadership class, the girls make a closer contact with each other because all are interested in the same activity — athletics. As the class is informal we see a different side of the girls ' personality by this contact, thus many times closer friendships are formed than would be possible by a regular casual acquaintance in classrooms. As each sport season rolls around, the leadership girls get out the neces- sary equipment and start work on the fundamentals of each sport. This prep- aration enables the girls to become the leaders in their own gym class. Special training in tumbling and dancing are given to the girls. The girls elected Bea Salazar as Captain this year. Bea is a typical leader and a girl who can be depended upon to achieve whatever she may undertake. 207 3 M s-t ov f fkil ndustrial Ihambra indattrv at 3lhatvbpa is the promise or commercial develop mcnt which «vill in the future inspire the constroction of towering skLscrapers hu c roomtj buildinM ircnitectural mtnierpietes f s ' 7 V ' ' a V - .

ALHAMBRA Phone 401 214 IN 1906 F. A. Utter left Salt Lake City and came to the San Gabriel Valley. He bought out Mr. Phil- lips interest in the Phillips and Allen Funeral Home. In 1919 he purchased Mr. Allen ' s interest in the business. Soon his son Leon came into partner- ship with him and the name of the firm was changed to F. A. Utter Son, Funeral Directors. In 1923 they erected their beautiful building at the corner of Fourth and Main Streets. Later, the firm found it necessary to expand, so they built the beautiful building at the corner of Lincoln and Garvey Avenues in Monterey Park. Decoration Day. 1929, F. A. Utter was called to his reward. Mr. Utter played an important part in the de- velopment of this particular part of the San Gabriel Valley, which has turned out to be one of the most de- sirable parts of the whole of glorious Southern California. His wife and son, Leon, are carrying on the business so successfully established. Leon Utter is very well known as being an active and willing leader in nearly all of the civic organizations of this city. - ■ 215 The Class of 1931 — We Congratulate You WOODRUFFS MEN ' S WEAR 7 East Main Street ALHAMBRA SOX HATS 1 TIES TROUSERS 1 SHIRTS SPORTSWEAR CLOTHING s CONGRATULATIONS SIMONSON ' S FLORAL ART SHOP CUT FLOWERS The Outstanding Flower Shop of Alhambra 411 West Main Street Phone 1283 ! 216 First National Bank of Alhambra Oldest National Bank in the San Gabriel Valley CAPITAL STOCK 95 ' i HOME OWNED EVERY MODERN BANKING FACILITY First and Main Valley Blvd. and Garfield • — k ALHAMBRA WALL PAPER i AND PAINT CO.

The rooms were filled with many a youthe So thereof we nedeth to speke as nouthe. There was one small lass, so swich and coy, Naone wolde think she ' s many a boy. She hadde lokkes crulle, as they were leyd in presse For this is what she promptly did, I guesse — For whou that yong squver didde calle. She rushed with greate haste to the beautie halle. And later to some sevich melodye At every man she winked her pretty ye. She even tried to camp that worthy man But whan she started in on him he ran. In another group there was a bonny ladde And he seemed to be so verray, verray gladde For he had just received a smale. shy kisse For his birthday, from his dainty litel misse. There was one mayde could wel purtreye and wyte. But it was known that she coude neither sing nor wel endyte. Natheless she had her man tied to her apron stringe, For on her finger he had putte a smale, gold ringe — And so they daunced away the nightertale To music more swich than the song of nightengale. Until at last the midnight chime didde ring And " Good Night " the orchestra gan to sing. And so everichon filed out through the open dore. And told hir hostess they wolde like to come some more. 235 The Facultee By Phyllis Norton I Whan to that Septembre with hir daies hote, Aeolus hathe hir warmste windes y-sente.

But if wer any persoun obstinat, What-so he wer, of hy or lowe estat. Him wolde he snibben sharpely for nones. A bettre Principal, I trowe, there no wher is. One man ther was, a wantoun and a merye. His lokkes close croppe. crulle, and ne broun as a berye. Of his stature he was of even lengthe. And wonderly nonchalente and greet of strengthe. 236 And hadde been sometyme in games In P. J. C U.

Singinge he was, or smilinge. al the daye. He was as freshe as is the monthe of Maye. With his tongue he was wei right delivere. But withalle, a curteys, serviseable cavalere. He was a coach of Debate, And Shipman was what he was calt. A gentil techer ther was of Aihambre also. That unto ancrens hadde a longe y-go.
