The members of the Board, who offer their services without pay, are elected to their office for a period of four years. Meetings of the Board are held on the first and third Mondays of the month at 7:30 P. M. in the Board of Education rooms in the East Wing of the high school building. These meetings are open to the public. There are five members in the Board, each elected for a period of four years. Mr. George L. Yelland is the Secretary of the Board of Education. The members who are serving on our School Board at the present time are: W. H. CORYELL President H. H. MONTGOMERY - Vice-President G. L. YELLAND ------------------ Secretary MRS. E. G. HARTSIG MRS. L. M. GILSTRAP F. B. GILLENWATERS Thirteen Administration Recently I listened to a talk to a group of business men in a city near Alhambra. Business conditions were frankly dis- cussed and various problems analyzed. The message was so timely that I am revising it somewhat and passing it on to the students of A. H. S. Crises bring out the best or the worst that is in us. If the issue is a moral one we come through it either better citizens or poorer ones. There is no middle ground. If the crisis comes in our school work we either quit trying and flunk, or we get right down to brass tacks and succeed. The point of these illustrations is simply this. It is harder to stay in school now than it has been before. It is harder to go on to college now than it formerly was. It is easier to drift now than it has been before. Drifting means stagnation, uselessness, and in the end ruin. To succeed it is necessary to pull on the oars and row up stream. Let me leave with you the slogan given by the speaker I referred to at the beginning: " DON ' T DRIFT — ROW. " tie • Routt V FORREST V. ROUTT, Superintendent of Schools. To the Student Body of Alhambra High: We have grown to more than three thousand this year. Ten years ago there was much self congratulation heard about the school when we passed one thousand. We were growing up. Five years ago the unheard of number of two thousand was passed and people began to ask where such a number could be housed. But a larger student body does not neces- sarily mean a better quality nor cohesive action. Quite the reverse, proportionately, good grades fall and school spirit becomes unwieldy and lapses. Bettinger y ne depression has placed all public activities in the spotlight of tax revision and education in general has borne a close scrutiny. Volun- rarily the school systems have reduced their own cost in the past year by twenty-seven percent. With this public interest focused on the schools there has been foste r ed by certain interests a well studied plan to discredit some functions of the schools and to cast slighting insinuations against the so-called " higher education. " In the light of all this, I would ask you to remember that these times are abnormal and sane thinking will return. What has been provided for you should be maintained for those who follow you. A good education is the heritage of every American youth. Sincerely, GEORGE E. BETTINGER, Principal. Fourteen VICE-PRINCIPALS EFFINE P. BLOUNT H. M.

Eighteen Signatures Nineteen c l a s s e s The individual classes: Freshman, Sophomore, Junior and Senior, go to form the compact group of our high school known as the student body McNeill Kittleson McFarland Henderson Winter Class The Winter Class of ' 33 has been on its way four years, and to us these years have passed all too quickly. Our Junior Play, " Fanny and the Servant Problem " was a fine production. Last spring our Junior-Senior Prom, was given, which surpassed all those of the foregoing classes. Also, in our Junior year we won the Inter-Class debating contest. This year ' s activities included the Senior play, " Tailor Made Man " , under the direction of Miss lone Zellhoefer, which was a dramatic as well as a financial success, Kid Day, which was enjoyed greatly by all the members of our class, and the winning of the Student Body ticket sale for this year. Our Senior Dance was also an occasion of note. W33 can feel justly proud of its Commencement Exercises and Class Day Program. On the Athletic field, we have furnished members for all A. H. S ' s. fighting teams, including Captains of some of the Majors. Several members of our class have gained high honor in sports. Many of our class- mates are members of the Scholarship Society, some being life members. The retiring commissioners are of the A 12 class. We wish to express our greatest appreciation to Miss McNeill, our class advisor. She has very ably guided us through our Senior Year. 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.

From our Freshman to our Senior year our class has made a success of everything which we have attempted. During our first year as high and mighty Freshmen we proved our true Alhambra spirit by attaining a one hundred percent student body membership. We also won the ten dollar prize for a P. T. A. membership drive. When we attained the much respected title of Sophomores, we continued on our way to make our class the most successful ever to enter the walls of Alhambra by winning the Freshmen-Sophomore Debate. Then as we gained the dignity of being Juniors and upper division students, we presented the most successful Junior Play, " Fanny and the Servant Problems, " to be presented in the past few years. We then took full burden onto ourselves and gave by far the most successful Junior Prom that had ever been given by any Junior Class. Having completed our first three years we acquired the much looked for title of " Seniors. " In conjunction with the Winter Class, which has preceded us in leaving the halls of Alhambra, we put on the most successful Senior Dance to be held for many years. We then introduced a new type of class ring and pin, surpassing anything offered to any other class. A not-soon-to-be-forgotten event was our Senior Play, " Inside the Lines, " which through the able direction of Mrs. Wynne was acclaimed to be the best ever presented in our auditorium. We wish to show our appreciation to the faculty one and all, for the whole- hearted support they have rendered us. We want to thank Mr. Lawson, our class advisor, in particular, for his untiring efforts, which did much to make our Senior year most enjoyable. MR.

When a student begins his Senior year, which is the last lap, he reaches the peak of his High School Career. He looks back and really regrets leaving high school. High school has been a great deal of fun, and he knows he will never have a better time than his high school days. What the student makes of himself in high school is perhaps what he will make of himself in the outside world. A student in high school is just at the age where he shapes his character. Whether he tends to sit back and let others do things, or whether he does them himself, is what counts. We, the officers of the Winter Class of ' 34, wish to thank our classmates for the honor of making us their leaders. We want to thank them for their cooperation. We knowing that we speak the unanimous sentiments of the class, thank Miss McNeill for her help and advice in our class affairs. Miss McNeill, our faculty advisor and pal, has stayed after school day after day helping us to get the class business into order. We also want to thank the faculty members for their kindness and aid in put- ting over our activities. Mr. Bettinger has been very kind and has let us interrupt him many times to ask his advice. I. Lloyd Anderson, wish to thank my fellow officers for their cooperation and hard work. They deserve a lot of thanks, and I know their classmates appreciate it.

During our Freshman year we attained one hundred percent study body membership and enriched the school with many athletes and scholars. In our Sophomore year many of our classmates showed great ability in leadership and were admitted to the various school organizations. Many students also took an active part in forensics. In this, our Junior year, we were not able to have a Junior Play through lack of a drama teacher. Desiring to give a Junior Prom but lacking funds, the class officers and a committee worked hard and managed to put on a benefit show at the Alhambra theater. However, a sufficient amount was not raised, and it was decided to take a collection of ten cents from the students. Thus a successful Junior Prom is anticipated. This year S ' 34 was represented on the student body commission, debate teams, athletic teams, and in many upper division clubs. Another honor bestowed upon us was the choice of next year ' s football captain from our ranks. We greatly value the kind and helpful supervision our class advisor, Mr. Oleson, has given us through the year. We also appreciate the hard work of the various officers and committees, and the genial cooperation of the entire class. MR. OLESON ..-.--.- Class Advisor R. E.

The rest of the time we spent getting used to A. H. S. and preparing for our future school years. We had some very pleasant class meetings that year. Now, we as BM ' s wish to thank Miss Zellhoefer for the splendid start she gave us. Many of us who were very inconspicuous in our 9th year began to find out that we not only could do things, but that we also could give ourselves and our classmates a real satisfaction in carrying out these things to a successful finish. Some became good debators; some won honors in athletics; others became able officers of school clubs. As a whole, our I Oth year was a most satisfactory one. Now in our Junior year we have had a challenge flung at us — a challenge which perhaps no other Junior Class has ever faced. Grim Depression has stalked into our midst, saying, " There can be no Junior Prom this year. It wasn ' t possible to produce a Junior play, and it is even more impossible to give a Junior Prom. " Although we understand perfectly well that previous Proms have been wholly financed by the receipts of the Junior Play, we Juniors have said, " Mr. Depression, there shall be a Junior Prom this year. We have grit — we have initiative — we can put it across. You have had things your way too long. Watch us. " We BM ' s are taking great pride in doing our part, ably directed by Miss Erwine, to make this Junior Prom a dazzling triumph.

Lack of money has caused a curtailment of social events, but we feel that we have carried on and have done our best to uphold the spirit of A. H. S. Our Freshman year started in the usual manner, and after being duly chastened by the royal upper classmen we came back with the good old fight for which our class is noted ' , and won the interscholastic debate. Much credit is given to Jane Gail and Harold Linmark, our two outstanding debators. Social functions of our class have not been numerous. One dance during our Freshman year was held at the " El Moro " ballroom. Many of our members have made us proud of them in the major sports. We have contributed valuable material to both " B " and Varsity football teams. Two of our class are on the pitching staff of the baseball team. We are also well represented in basketball and track. This past year has been trying in many ways. We have been handicapped by financial difficulties which have made it impossible for our class to contribute to the student body drive. The same situation has limited our social activities, but through it all we have pulled together, perhaps the better for our difficulties. When we realize how pleasant our year has been, we feel that most of the credit must be given to our class advisor, Miss Turnbull, without whose interests and inspiration, the history of the past year might indeed have been far less pleasant.

Sixty-seven Miller Shumway McAllister Phillips Ward Winter Class of ' 36 The Sophomore Class has already made an excellent start since entering Alham- bra High. Our first achievement in high school was a good showing in the sale of Student Body tickets. When we were still Freshmen our superior debate team, composed of Jane Gail and Harold Lindmark, won the interscholastic debate from the Sophomores and the Seniors. Not only are our classmates already becoming members of important organiza- tions, but we are also furnishing a great deal of material for the athletic teams of A. H. S. At our first BIO meeting we elected the following officers: Bob Shumway, Presi- dent; Virginia Phillips, Vice-President; Jane McAllister, Secretary; Marguerite Ward, Treasurer. We are planning some very interesting trips and programs for the coming year. With the help and cooperation of the class as a whole and with Mr. Miller as our class advisor, we are sure that we can make W ' 36 one of the most successful classes in Alhambra High School. MR.

There were, of course, bright hopes of a happy and successful four years ahead; but the immediate prospect of the initiation forthcoming at the hands of the older students caused more or less uneasi- ness, and made each " green " little boy and girl assume an air of wisdom and knowl- edge that deceived no one. Finding, however, that " the bark was worse than the bite, " we all emerged from our experience full-fledged high school students. After advice and final instructions from our principal, Mr. Bettinger, we were sent out into the big, bewildering world of C ' s, A ' s, E ' s and W ' s, where we wandered perplexed for a day or so. Then we settled down to our daily routine with a sigh of relief. Our first activity was the buying of student body tickets, in which we made a fairly good showing. On September Twenty-sixth we met in the auditorium for our first class meeting, presided over by Farnsworth Toppin, who introduced candidates for class offices. There was an unusually large number, especially for president, and the election which followed was quite interesting. After a talk by Mrs. Farmer, Class Advisor, school yells were led by Kenneth Bevan. Our next meeting occurs May First, at which we expect to announce candidates for next year ' s offices. In athletics and other school activities, we feel that we have done very well, having members from our class on the Class C football, basketball, and track teams.

The boys were told that they would not live through the first day, but the girls did not take these threats seriously. Yet most of us began to feel queer at the thoughts of casting our lot with so many strange young people. The, first day we reported to the auditorium to find out where we were to go. We were greeted by many students who by weird and strange methods initiated us into high school life. Some were made to go on the stage and do funny things. We were paid a great deal of attention on the first day, but we soon fell in with the others and were forgotten to some extent, while we struggled to master many new rules and regulations. Before long we had more friends than we could possibly have in the old days, and it made us exceedingly happy. The numerous clubs of Alhambra High School have taken in dozens of members from the Class of W37. Our classmates are already beginning to take part in many of the school activi- ties. Two of our number made the Freshman debate team. Many of the boys went out for track, making a good standing especially in Class C events. Our first year is but a beginning of what we hope to accomplish at Alhambra High School.

G. ' s and special students returned to school we doubted that we could find a place to put them. However, after looking around, we found room for them, and they soon settled down to their regular routine. Inasmuch as the P. G. ' s and specials had no C. R., and many came for just a few periods a day, it was very difficult for the whole group to get together. How- ever, the cl ass did very well. It started out by making an excellent showing in the purchase of Student Body tickets. Many of its members took leading parts in the school ' s activities, and the class, as a whole and individually, showed a fine spirit of cooperation.

It seems that we have had more adverse circumstances than the school has ever known. The tragic loss of one of our most beloved and outstanding students was such a blow that it will be a lasting memory to all A. H. S. I feel that the student body as a whole realizes and appreciates the supreme effort which the football team and coaches made to carry on as they did with the true Moor Spirit. All of our teams have shown a fighting spirit of which we may well be proud. Our basketball team for example, through sheer fight and able coaching, was able to defeat every team in the league at least once during the season. Our debators also made a fine showin g. At this time we, the commission, would like to express our appreciation for the assistance which Mr. Potter, our faculty advisor, has given us throughout the past semester. It has been both a privilege and a pleasure to serve A. H. S. even in a period of economic stress. Nevertheless, we know that A. H. S. is going to continue doing bigger and better things, and in the end she will always be successful in what- ever she does. DALE DODDS, Commissioner General. Seventy-nine Stombaugh Hill Archibald Lawyer Armstrong Ray Sommerville Stever Dpdson Commission Another chapter in the history of Alhambra High has ended, and with it many marks of success have been recorded. Times have been very trying throughout the year, and from a financial stand- point were not so good. However, with the future looking brighter, we feel that the school will again prosper. In all of the school activities we have been quite successful. Our athletic endeav- ors were excellent; our debate and scholarship standings were high. Student Body Programs were given, which met with the approval of the students. We of the Commission wish to take this opportunity to express our appreciation for the fine help received from Mr. Bettinger, Mr. Potter, and several other members of the faculty. May you of A. H. S. continue to climb the steps of success, and may your achievements become greater as the years go by. ROBERT ARCHIBALD, Commissioner-General. Eiahty McAlpine Armstrong Donhost Romo Boner Alhambran Staff of 1933 Now that we have reached the end of another school year well spent, we the st aff hope that we have given to you an annual that you will enjoy in later years. We hope that you who were able to obtain an Alhambran will value the example of fine teamwork put forth by the staff. We .all appreciated the outstanding supervision of our advisors, Mr. McAlpine and Mr. Bonar. We have had wonderful co-operation from all the advisors, the fac- ulty, the students, and the representatives of the business firms with which we have been associated. Marjorie Romo, art editor, has done a great deal of work to make this produc- tion artistic and successful, Frances Donhost, who has acted in capacity of assistant- editor and copy editor, did remarkable work in undertaking the work of Elma Hosmer, who because of illness could not continue as copy editor. Ruth Danford did excellent work on senior pictures. It would be difficult to mention all the members of the staff who did outstanding work because they all did so remarkably well. It has been a great pleasure to serve the student body in capacity of editor-in- chief of the Alhambran. The staff worked so harmoniously that I could depend on them at all times. I believe that each member of the staff has felt the same sense of responsibility that I encountered. If this book meets with your approval we will feel that we have indeed accom- plished our aim.

H. S. are privileged to belong. It is composed of an Executive Board, Advisory Board and Advisor, Miss Blount. The welfare work this year has consisted of the Christmas work, purchasing of needed articles for school and homes, cheering the sick by flowers and letters, and aiding the Red Cross by subscriptions and quake donation. The welfare funds for this year ' s work were raised by shows under the direction of the Girls ' League and Boys ' Federation. The officers of this year have enjoyed their work to the fullest extent and wish to extend the very best wishes for the success of next year ' s officers. MISS BLOUNT - Advisor ALICE RAY President JACQUELINE FREDERICK Vice-President RUTH BISHOP - - Secretary DOROTHY KLEIN - Treasurer Eighty-four Werre The Boys ' Federation The organization called the Boys ' Federation has a membership of every boy in Alhambra City High School. This club was organized to help carry on a system of self-government within the high school. The club has retained the wave of enthusiasm which rose in the school ' s younger days. A program is given once a month for the club members. These programs are planned in the regular weekly meetings of the executive board. The executive board is composed of a president, vice-president, secretary, treas- urer, three committee chairmen, and three committees. The committees are Public Service, School Service, and Personal Service. The Boys ' Federation co-operated with the Girls ' League and presented a movie, " The Spirit of Notre Dame, " to the school. The proceeds were used to carry on welfare work. Much money is spent supplying the needy in our school with lunch money, shoes, and clothes. The existing conditions made it important this year to give our attention to welfare work. The federation helped distribute many boxes to needy families at Christmas. Because of the great need, more food was distributed this year than ever before. This was made possible through the splendid co-operation of the students and some of the schools ' friends. To our advisor, Vice-Principal, Mr. Werre, we owe a great debt of gratitude. MR. WERRE - - - - Advisor BILL SOMMERVILLE - - - President BUD WINTERBOTTAM Vice-President DICK DAVID ----------------- Secretary-Treasurer Eighty-five McAlpine Watson Brogden Newton Lafleur Moor Staff With George Newton as editor, the first semester ' s Moor came out for the first time in September as a four column sheet due to a cut in the Moor budget. Aided by a capable staff and hard working reporters, the editor succeeded in giving to the student body an accurate account of school events. The sports page, under Burl Watson with the help of Hank Clayton and Bob Paredes, compiled accurate statistics on every league football game, and in general, made up an interesting page. Margaret McMillen and Walter Brown, associate editors, assisted George in making up the paper. The second semester ' s Moor started off with a bang under the editorship of Burl Watson. First the editor had a good staff and second the staff was given a five column paper to work with, which naturally fired the staff into working hard for a bigger and better paper than in the past. The Moor was fortunate in having Jerry Torres as the second semester ' s sports editor. Jerry, having had experience in the sports department of the Alhambra Post Advocate, put out a sports page which in make-up and general news overshadowed anything yet seen in the Moor. A new system was organized this year; the assignments were taken care of by an independent editor, Charles Adams, who successfully covered every news angle in A. H. S. scholas- tic and athletic life. Assisting the editor was Harriette Smulekoff, copy editor, and Al Lafluer, Associate Editor, who supervised copy and read proof on the Moor. The Moor staff wishes to congratulate the Alhambra Review, who under Miss Archer has cooperated with the staff in publishing the Moor. Mr. McAlpine, the faculty advisor, guided the staff throughout the year in his customary fashion. MR.

This year the Moor has been blessed with a host of able scribes, which no doubt is one of the biggest reasons for its enviable success. The greater part of the reporters come from the journalism class, which is taught by Mr. McAlpine. There they learn their business well — hence the high standard of journalism to be found in the Moor. The remainder of the reporting force is made up of members of the student body who through an interest in writing wish to contribute to the school paper. To the reporters falls the task of gathering the contents of the paper. Assignments made by the editor-in-chief are posted in the Moor Office at the close of every week. Immediately the reporters run their stories down. It is of course unnecessary to elabo- rate upon the efficiency with which they operate. Little news indeed, either on the campus or off, escapes them. The reporters of the Moor for the past year are to be highly congratulated on their excellent work in recording the happenings of Alhambra High, and in helping to make the Moor one of the outstanding high school papers in Southern California. Eighty-seven School Bank The financial structure of Alhambra High revolves about the School Bank, located in CI 2, which handles all Student Body finances. The bank is run on a systematic basis in the same manner as any other bank in town, and it affords students expert training which will prepare them to step out advantageously into the business world. This year the personnel of the bank included twenty-six persons whose duty it was to keep books for the " Moor, " the Student Body Store, all ten of the school cafeterias, and the various clubs and classes. When election time rolls around, the task of counting ballots falls to the bank. Every student who works in the bank has the opportunity of becoming at some time Commissioner of Finance, inasmuch as Mr. Potter selects the two most capable as candidates for that office in the Student Body election. Commissioners of Finance this year were Fred Stever, first semester, and Fred Engen, second. Their respective opponents in the elections automatically assumed the job as business manager of the " Moor. " Situated in the bank is the Lost and Found Department, where lost articles are turned in, registered, and returned to their r ightful owners. Another important depart- ment of the high school, working in conjunction with the bank, is the Student Body Store, which is located in the basement of the west wing. This store, which carries all sorts of school supplies, novelty articles, and candy, bought with its proceeds much of the equipment in the bank, the public address system in the auditorium; and it aids in the support of all student activities. Eighty-eight A Stage Crew The stage crew, under the direction of Mrs. Boone, has 5 ' charge of all stage work for A. H. S. productions. This year pjf. fc " the boys designed and constructed the sets for the senior i : plays, " Tailor-Made Man " and " Inside the Lines. " The stage Boone crew ' s next big project was the construction of sets for the Light and Shadow production of " Hamlet, " which appeared May 5. In recognition of their splendid services the Light and Shadow Club bought a handsome new outfit for each one of the crew. The names of the boys who composed the stage crew this year are as follows: John Alvarado, Joe Dominguez, Ed Harmon, Russell Hindmarsh, George Beck, Myron Goss, PauL-bLegb, Ray Johnson, Bob Laughton, Bill May, Sam Page, Kenny McDaniel, Harry Miller, Dale Russell. P. T. A. Even this year in the face of the Depression (always spelled with a capital D), the Alhambra Parent-Teachers ' Association has " carried on. " Their work has been largely concerned with student aid. The members of the organization have worked hard and faithfully to carry on the work in the face of the greatest difficulties. Teachers have contributed liberally out of their monthly pay checks that this work might go on. The contribution of the teachers has been supplemented by receipts from the Welfare- Store, and from card parties, and various other schemes designed to augment the fund. We should, and do feel most grateful to this organization for keeping up this work in the face of the great difficulties that they have encountered, for without it many students would have suffered. Eighty-nine Senior Dance With the evening of January 7 came one of the most gala affairs of the year — the annual Senior Dance, which was held in El Moro Ballroom. Gaiety and exhilaration of spirits prevailed until the closing dance. Rhythmic melodies for the occasion were furnished by Freddie Farrell ' s lively orchestra. Credit for the success of the Senior Dance must go to the following competent staff of workers whose efforts made the occasion possible: Dick Lawyer, General Manager; Miss McNeill and Mr. Lawson, Faculty Advisors; Maureen Winterbottom, Gladys Mackie, Bill Pepping, and Florentin Pearne, Decorations; Virginia Crandall, Helen Brice, and Pat McFarland, Hostesses; John Cahoon and Nate Henderson, Tickets; John Olhasso and Wayne Kittleson, Clean-Up. Junior Prom The second big frolic of the year was the Junior Prom, which graced El Moro Ballroom on the evening of May 27th. The decorations for the Prom were worked out along the Colonial theme. The bulk of materials for the decorations was acquired through donations. This year the Juniors were seriously handicapped by lack of funds; yet they must be highly complimented for the superiority of their prom. Credit for the great success of the Junior Prom must go to Miss Erwine, to Kenny Bevan, Gen- eral Manager, and to the staff of committeemen who worked so diligently. A list of the assistants is as follows: Gorganne Dimarco, Decorations; John Prince, Buyer; Phyllis Barto and Dick Carrol, Programs; Jack Henderson, Orchestra Pit; Herman Landgraf, Clean-Up; Ed Vail and Becky Beckett, Refreshments; Virginia Potts, Invita- tions; Bill Gleason, Furniture. Light and Shadow Hi- Jinks As the 1933 Alhambran goes to press, there are great plans afoot for the annual Light and Shadow Hi-Jinks, June 3rd. Things have been so stupid and slow around here this year, with Depression, Depression, Depression always in the saddle, that we haven ' t had any fun to speak of at all. The Light and Shadow people are noted for their hospitality and the cheery, jovial atmosphere they are able to create, and this year they are planning to outdo themselves. Committees are making plans for elabo- rate decorations and refreshments, and an orchestra that all will declare is the best ever. As you read this the dance will be a thing of the past — a memory. To those of you who are Light and Shadow members, or fortunate enough to have been their guests, this memory will doubtless remain as one of the most pleasant of all the school year. Ninety CLUBS Landgraf Forester McFarland Sprague Chapter 21. C.S.F Throughout the year the Scholarship Society easily maintained its reputation as a wide-awake club, both by its participation in regional and district activities, and by its assemblies and social affairs. In our first semester assembly Mr. Gifford Gordon gave a talk on Australia, and later, in March, the Student Body enjoyed a program given by Whittier College during the Scholarship Assembly. Of course we enjoyed our half-holidays with their customary humorous mishaps and good times.

Art Club During the past five years the Art Club has progressed until now it is one of the largest clubs in A. H. S., but it has been just within the last year that we feel the Art Club has been most appreciated by its members. We have restricted the membership until now we have but eighty members. Those eighty members have proved that they are really worthy of the club that we have tried to make every one proud to join. (In this way we have stimulated a greater interest in art.) Each student in order to join must submit a piece of work that he or she has done. This work is judged by teachers and officers of the club, and those who have work chosen are given memberships to the club. The work that is chosen is exhibited in the cases of the Art Building. The members also enjoy the social side of that club. In December we had a dinner party at the Chocolate Tavern. Everyone wore a hat that he had made. Prizes were given and everyone had a good time.

The officers are the two consuls, the scriba, and the aediles, who plan the programs for the four meet- ings of the year. The first meeting was presided over by Martha Farmer, one of the consuls. As there was an election, there was no program. At the second meeting, presided over by Eloise Yelland, the program consisted of several interesting talks on ancient Roman customs. After the talks, Roman songs were sung by the whole club. The third meeting was probably the most interesting of all. Mrs. Richardson, former A. H. S. faculty member, gave an illustrated talk on ancient and modern Rome. MARTHA FARMER ELOISE YELLAND J " " ' " " Presidents ANTHONY HUTCHINSON - - ■ ....... Secretary BILLY MAGINETTI - - - Treasurer Nine+y-four The French Club This year has seen the French Club one of the most active of school clubs. Under the careful guidance of Miss Rees, our advisor, we have all enjoyed studying the language and belonging to the club. During the year we held six interesting and instructive meetings. At our first meeting we elected officers. After the election Miss Rees gave an illustrated talk on " Famous French Men. " At our Christmas meeting Mrs. Terhune gave a talk on " Some Quaint French Holiday Customs. " At this meeting it was unanimously voted to give five dollars to the needy. Our next meeting was made enjoyable by Miss Shropshire, who supplied some delightful medieval songs. Miss Rees told a story of the customs of the troubadours and trouveres. To end a successful year the club went to a foreign restaurant for dinner. ALEX KARAVIEFF President BETTY RAY ------------ - - Vice-President ALVA WARREN ---------------- Secretary-Treasurer Ninety-five Spanish Club The Spanish Club of Alhambra High School has just terminated its sixth successful year. Since it is now our main objective to become better acquainted with the Spanish language and customs, as well as to promote a feeling of friendship with the Spanish- speaking peoples, we have reason to be proud of our club from the standpoint of carrying out and fulfilling this objective. Membership in the club is open to those receiving recommended grades in one year of Spanish, while completion of the third year entitles one to life membership in this organization. Our members are steadily increasing, since there are now 175 in the club, an increase of approximately 25 members since last year. Interest in our Spanish-speaking neighbors has been stimulated through the cor- respondence of many of the club members with students of English in the Latin- American countries and in Spain. Many distant friendships have been struck up by means of this most entertaining and instructive practice of letter-writing. Our meetings have proved most enjoyable, since the faculty has always given its hearty co-operation to those in charge of the program. The first meeting of the year took on a business-like aspect, since the main thought in the minds of the members was the election of officers. During our February meeting, we were especially fortu- nate in having as a guest speaker Mr. Roscoe A. Goodcell of the Review Department of the Automobile Club of Southern California, who presented an extremely fine lecture and motion picture of the Automobile Club ' s ten-month trip into the wilds of Central America and Mexico. Incidentally, this was the largest meeting of the year, since our friends from the French Club were present. During another of the club meetings, a few of the first-year Spanish students put on a play, " Los Tres Osos, " while Miss Louise Spalding, prominent music and dance instructor, favored us with some Spanish dancing and musical numbers. Eugene Sullivan acted as pianist for the meetings, often playing some of his inimitable piano solos, which of course lent greatly to the enjoyment of those present. As usual, elaborate preparations were made for our annual visit to Olvera Street in Los Angeles, which is always climaxed by a delicious Spanish dinner at " La Golon- drina. " This affair is always looked forward to and attended by a large number of Spanish students. We wish to extend our sincerest thanks and appreciation to the club advisor, Mrs. Steward, as well as to the other Spanish teachers who have so cheerfully and willingly given of their time and effort in order to make this year ' s Spanish club better than ever before. GEORGE HILL - - - President CHARLES WOOLSEY - - Vice-President DOROTHY EVANS Secretary-Treasurer MRS. STEWARD - Advisor Ninety-six Ninety-seven Light and Shadow The Light and Shadow Club, for the last two semesters, has been both active and successful in its undertakings. It is the aim of this club to promote interest for dramatics among the students. Conforming to this idea, the club has sponsored the previews for the two Senior Plays this year, has given interesting skits in assembly, and has introduced the various mem- bers of the casts. A reception for those taking part in the play, their parents, and friends follows each major performance. An annual activity of Light and Shadow is the Hi-Jinks. This is a dance which is looked forward to by all of the members as the grand and glorious climax of the social activities of the school year. The enthusiasm of the members of this club is shown by their willingness to volun- teer their services for each of these activities. The meetings throughout the year are considered events of some consequence, and are thoroughly enjoyed by those Thespians. MARY HEADLEY - - - President .... - - - HADLEY B.

M. C. A. in the High School. The club holds elections of its officers and considers applicants for mem- bership at the beginning of each semester at which time initiations and induction ceremonies are given the Neophytes. The club holds weekly meetings, the programs of which are arranged among educational, spiritual, athletic, and social themes. During the last semester the Mid-Winter Ladies ' Night Banquet was held at the Alhambra Athletic Club, and swimming parties and other feature programs have been staged in addition to the regular meetings. The Hi-Y was host to the Third District Y. M. C. A. Older Boys ' Conference held in Alhambra in March of this year. Delegates from surrounding communities attended. Much of the fine spirit and interest which has been manifested in club affairs are the results of the untiring efforts and leadership of Mr. Shipman, our High School Advisor, and Mr. Knights, Y. M. C. A. Secretary.

The club is composed of all students who have taken debate for at least one semester, and consequently promotes closer friendship and provides a medium of social intercourse between those interested in public speaking. The success of all forensic endeavors depends upon the efficiency of this club. Lengthy and elaborate preparations were made for the Forensic Club Dance, one of the social highlights of the school year. The preparations were so extensive as to include dancing instructions for quite a few of the members, who welcomed this oppor- tunity to polish up on their dancing, under the able supervision of Miss Walker. How- ever, our plans were completely disrupted by the unexpected visit of the earthquake, after which it was deemed unadvisable to hold a dance in " El Moro Ballroom. " A large measure of the club ' s success is due to the helpful advice and co-opera- tion of Miss Walker and Mr. Shipman. GEORGE HILL President WILLIAM DIVINE - - - - Vice-President THURMAN WILKINS - - - - -.- - Secretary-Treasurer One Hundred r n J h U - Chess Club The Chess Club, one of the oldest clubs in the school, formerly held its meetings in the office of Mr. Bettinger, at that time Boys ' Vice-Principal. In the new building, the Vice-Principal ' s office was too small, and the club became inactive. Three years ago it was revived under the leadership of William Woodbury. The first president of the permanent organization was William Mosteller, who was succeeded by Ralph Syvertson, and he by Werner Bracher, who is now president. Mr. Thomas has been the faculty advisor for the club for the last three years, and we could not have done without his services. The club has held a Round Robin Tournament to determine the ranking of mem- bers in the club. Interscholastic matches are being looked forward to by club members. Occasionally a chess expert is obtained, and he usually plays several boards at the same time. It is quite a privilege to play an expert, and it is greatly appreciated by members. " Blindfold " and " Correspondence " chess are played frequently. There are now twenty members in the club, and feminine associate-members are also showing great interest, as the club is open to both boys and girls. WERNER BRACHER - - - ..... President DONALD HUMMER -------- ..... Vice-President GEORGE ABRAMS - - - - Secretary-Treasurer One Hundred One Longfellows The Longfellows Club is composed of twenty-seven Juniors, Seniors, and P. S. ' s, who are six feet tall or over. This club is a service organization whose chief duty is the supervision of all fire- drills. These assistant-firemen have greatly aided in maintaining safety by clearing the buildings in record time, and keeping the exits open. Aside from this, the club is always ready to render any aid possible. This was proved by the contribution made for football shoes for last year ' s team, and the assistance to Mr. Bonar in the taking of annual pictures. Mr. Heyl, our faculty advisor, has generously contributed his best efforts towards making this club a success, and the officers and members wish to thank him. The pledge have been treated to some very unique initiation stunts, and we who " dished it out " hope that they enjoyed it as much as we did. JOHN WILHELM - - CHARLES OGDEN - - GEORGE BETTINGER, JR.

The club was started and is sponsored by the Alhambra Exchange Club for effective service work in the Alhambra High School, its slogan being " Unity for Service. " During the year it carries on a very full and selective service program both for individuals and for the school. The Club has the highest scholastic requirements of any service club in the Alhambra High School. At Christmas it aids the Girls ' League and Boys ' Federation in a very extensive charity program, which requires two full days of work and helps over eighty needy families. The Club also has a well founded social program consisting of a dance and a banquet each semester, along with the regular meetings.

After the Los Alcaldes was organized, Mr. Stoddard became the club ' s advisor. Every year since, he has done something to improve the club and make other students look up to it. The club is limited in its duties and activities as well as its membership, inasmuch as only the fellows who prove their distinction are elected to this organization. Members of the club include commissioners, class officers, outstanding athletes, and all round good school citizens. It should be considered an honor and a privilege to belong to this club.

We owe all of our success to our club advisor, Miss Shropshire, and we of the Usher Club only wish that we could show our gratitude to her other than by just printing her name, for she has been one of us in everything. The Club members have been complimented by Mr. Bettinger and other members of the faculty for the smooth and dignified manner in which they handle these programs. A few of the many things the Club has ushered for are the S ' 33 Senior Play, Class Day, Federation Benefit Shows, Student Body Assemblies, and the W ' 33 Gradu- ation, which was taken care of at a moment ' s notice. BOB STUMP, Head Ushe-. One Hundred Fn The Library Through use of the library students are able to cultivate right habits of reading and broaden their knowledge through acquaintance with books. The library shares with the classroom, responsibility for training students in their formative years to be discriminating in their reading. Through print the present generation learns of the past, cultivates an appreciation of good literature, and acquires a taste for books. " The only true equalizers in the world are books; the only treasure house open to all comers is a library; the only jewel which will not decay is knowledge; the only jewel which you can carry beyond the grave is wisdom. " " I always think the cover of a book is like a door, Which opens into someone ' s house where I ' ve not been before. A pirate or a fairy queen may lift the latch for me; I never know what sort of folks will be within you see, And that ' s why reading always is so int ' resting to me. " COSBY LOUISE GILSTRAP, Librarian. One Hundred Six . Girls ' Hiking Club The Girls ' Hiking Club, under the guidance of Miss Artz, was organized last year by Mrs. Bowers. It is sponsored by the P. T. A. We have made our hikes interesting by going to various places. Our first hike was to Sturdevant ' s Falls. During Christmas vacation we went on an overnight trip to Mount Baldy, where we enjoyed tobogganing and hiking in the snow. Another trip was to Mount Lowe. Hiking has proved beneficial to the girls as in this way they can earn points for their Big A ' s by hiking sixty miles a semester. We girls have been very enthusiastic, and as a result we have some very good hikers. We have surely appreciated and enjoyed the capable leadership of Miss Artz, and we only hope that the club will continue to be as successful as it has been.

The proud wearers of the letter appreciate this privilege, for they won it by active participation in sports, point by point, until they gained a total of seven hundred and fifty. Among the girls of the school this society promotes and encourages physical activity, good sportsmanship, and co-operation with the physical instructors. Its membership at present totals sixteen, and its activities have been under the capable leadership of Miss Lucille Linden, physical instructor. Outstanding among its social affairs during the past semester was the installation of officers and initiation of new members. A progressive dinner was held at this event and was greatly enjoyed by all. A spring banquet and bridge party were other pleasant social affairs.

The first few miles are covered with some difficulty because of the antics and inexperience of the younger passengers, who are embarking for the first time on such a trip. With clanging bell and steaming engine, the long train pulls out at 9 A. M., while Chief Conductor Bettinger calls a meeting of fireman, engineer, porters, and passengers. Final instructions are given, and each goes about his part in keeping the " Alhambra " rolling along. SEPTEMBER 13, 1932 Three new busses are added to relieve the crowds at the close of each day ' s trip.

JANUARY 7, 1933 Leaving a successful four-months ' trip behind in a cloud of dust, the new year is opened auspiciously by a gala event. The Senior Dance, affecting once more a short stop in this notable adventure, takes place at night. The affair is marked by good fortune, and is a memorable feature of the trip.

" Passengers and crew alike leave the train to visit San Pedro Harbor, wherein lies the early American frigate, " Old Ironsides. " JANUARY 26, 1933 In the Winter Graduation exercises held on this date, a great number of old passengers leave the excursion, with the completion of the first leg of the journey. The out-going passengers, however, are amply replaced by a trainload of amateur tourists who are picked up at the beginning of the last stretch. One Hundred Thirteen FEBRUARY 10, 1933 Today ' s issue of the MOOR marks the beginning of the former-sized paper, which is considerably larger than the ones in the past. MARCH 10, 1933 Nearing the end of the long journey, the Moor debate crew scores again, in defeating Citrus Union in oratory.

The Junior Prom is a great success! JUNE 17, 1933 Rounding the corner of June and entering into the last stretch of this memorable adventure, the " Alhambra " approaches the station which was left behind with the beginning of the school year, after a complete circuit of the ' 32- ' 33 trip. The new group of passengers leaving the worthy locomotive to embark upon new journeys — more important journeys — journeys which will decide the future of every one — were presented with diplomas at evening Commencement. JUNE 23, 1933 And so, steaming home after this long trip, the " Alhambra " comes to a stop with the closing of June. Conductors, engineer, fireman, porters, and passengers disembark, leaving the old train to rest upon the rails till the beginning of another school year.

This league, composed of the strongest prep schools in the West, offers the utmost in debate competition. It can be truthfully said that Alhambra has brought to a close another successful year, winning two of its three Southern Cali- fornia League forensic encounters. As has long been the custom, the two debaters for the first debate of the season are chosen by means of an oratorical contest. This year ' s contest winners were William Divine and George Hill, who were to uphold the Moorish standards against our old friends and rivals from San Diego on the morning of November I Oth before the Hilltopper assembly. Unfortunately, a few days before the debate, George was taken suddenly ill with pneumonia, and Harry Slack was chosen to take his place on the team. William and Harry, after a short period of intensive preparation, traveled to San Diego to uphold the negative side of the question, " Resolved: That coeduca- tion is a regrettable feature of the American school system. " This debate, before an audience of 1,500 students, was one of the most closely contested of the entire year, with the San Diego team emerging victoriously with a 3-0 decision. Both Harry and Bill are to be highly commended for their valient spirit and gracious acceptance of defeat. Our hopes again ran high when it was learned that the dynamic and experienced Thurman Wilkins was to be paired with Charles Webster on the debate against Bakersfield High School, scheduled for Friday, January the 13th. This combination looked most formidable indeed. Charles and Thurman upheld the affirmative side of the question, " Resolved: That at least fifty percent of state and local taxes should be collected from intangible property, " before an audience of more than 1,200 Bakers- field High School students. The opposition ' s case was met argument for argument, and with the greatest of skill. The audience was firmly convinced of the supremacy of the Moor orators over their own; consequently the 3-0 decision in our favor was not in the least bit surprising. The decision was gratifying indeed, coming as a wel- comed reward after long weeks of untiring preparation. One Hundred Thirty The last debate of the season, on March I Oth, came as a brilliant climax to a year of hard-fought and strenuous encounters. It was perhaps the most unique and eventful clash on the schedule, due to the fact that this debate, the only one held on our own platform, was enhanced with the presence of many old graduates. The A. H. S. Band, under the capable direction of Mr. Ulmer, presented a splendid musical concert previous to the debate. The speakers, Thurman Wilkins and George Hill, upholding the affirmative side of the question, " Resolved: That we have more to fear than to hope for from the further development of machines, " were prepared to meet every angle of their opponents ' attack. The question, perhaps the most up-to- date subject under discussion, drew an unexpectedly large crowd, considering the earthquake of a few hours before, which caused so much damage. The versatility of the speakers was shown to good advantage during certain parts of the debate when intermittent earthquake tremors were felt throughout the building. After a hotly contested period of argumentation, the Moors were able to emerge victoriously with a 2-1 decision in their favor. During this last debate of the year, both Thurman and George showed the results of intensive study and excellent coaching. Robert North, former star debater at A. H. S. and now on the U. S. C. debate squad, acted as chairman for this forensic encounter. The year 1932-33 has now come to a triumphant close. But we must remember not only the debaters themselves, for a large share of the distinction gained by Moorish orators has come only through the untiring efforts of our coaches, Miss Walker and Mr. Shipman. Were it not for their endeavors, Alhambra High School would not be recognized and respected for her high standards of debate excellence. Outlaw Debates In the past we have had, in addition to the Southern California Debate League, a minor league known as the San Gabriel Valley Debate League, but this year, due to certain unavoidable conditions, this league has been disbanded. Consequently, in order to meet the demand for inter-scholastic debates in addition to the three regular Southern California League Debates, it has been necessary to arrange an extensive schedule of outlaw debates. These forensic encounters, although they in no way affect our league standing, awaken a great deal of enthusiasm on the part of the students participating in them. Due to existing financial conditions and the large number of arguments scheduled, it has been impossible to secure paid judges to determine the victors and the vanquished, but nevertheless, our speakers have proved themselves true disciples of the Walker-Shipman system of debating. With students of debate from Pasadena Junior College as our guests, we held a most interesting series of debates on the current question, " Resolved: That the United One Hundred Thirty-one States should agree to the cancellation of the Inter-allied war debts. " The Alhambra teams upholding the affirmative side of this question were composed of: Kenneth Bevan and Hugh Nelson; Carmen Miller and Ernest Burley; William Wagner and Charles Hill. The members of the negative teams on the same question ere: Phylis Armstrong and Virginia Sampson; Myrtle Albers and Charles Moncrieff. This large schedule of outlaw debates was further enlarged when Myrtle Albers, Charles Moncrieff, Virginia Sampson, and Phylis Armstrong arranged to debate Santa Ana on identically the same question. Puente High School, our old rival in the now disbanded San Gabriel Valley League, was likewise the scene of a great deal of action when William Wagner, Charles Hill, Virginia Sampson and Phylis Armstrong engaged a series of war-debt discussions with this school. This program of outlaw debates would not be complete without the work of Robert Kistler and Harry Slack, both experienced in inter-scholastic debate competition, who met Citrus Union High School upholding the negative side of the cancellation argument. It was agreed by everyone participating that these practice affairs, although they entailed a great deal of time and hard work, were certainly worth the effort put into them, because of the invaluable experience gained. Due to the fact that there was quite a bit of discussion about this sensational so-called form of government known as " Technocracy " , the novel idea of staging a group of exhibition debates on the benefits and detriments of such a plan was con- ceived. The exact wording of the question was, " Resolved: That Technocracy is the solution for our present economic ills. " The affirmative team was composed of Claude Heck and Harry Slack, while the negative was upheld by Charles Webster and William Divine, with Robert Kistler acting as chairman of all the encounters. These speakers, after they felt that they had mastered all the problems under discussion, put their services at the disposal of the various school and social organizations in the vicinity. Immediately, the Technocracy advocates and their opponents were showered with numerous requests to appear before clubs, school organizations, P. T. A. gatherings, and the like. These exhibition debates proved exceptionally popular, due, of course, to the recent introduction of the question under discussion. In most cases, after the debaters had finished their lengthy dissertations on the comparative benefits and detriments of Technocracy, the audience was permitted to vote for the team to which they would concede the victory. A review of these audience decisions showed both teams to have practically the same number of victories and defeats, which of course, added to the enthusiasm on both sides. We feel, at the conclusion of this year ' s debate activities, that this comprehensive program of outlaw debates has accomplished everything it set out to do. The interest and enthusiasm awakened was enough to warrant its success, while the experience gained through inter-scholastic competition proved an invaluable aid to the participants. One Hundred Thirty-two Walke Wilkins Schwartz Clark Debate Trophy Mr. William J. Clark, a prominent local attorney who is exceptionally interested in debate work, each year presents a handsome silver trophy to the best debater ot the season. This trophy remains the permanent possession of the individual winning it, and acts as a perpetual incentive to aspiring debaters. It has always been the habit of Mr. Clark to present this trophy just after the last Southern California League debate of the year. Accordingly, we find him at the close of the debate with Citrus Union High School presenting this trophy, a recogni- tion of supremacy in debate, to none other than Thurman Wilkins, a speaker of that evening ' s contest. Thurman ' s excellent work in both the debate with Bakersfield and that with ' Citrus was the deciding factor that led to his choice as the best debater of the 1932-33 season. The students participating in at least one debate during the year receive a gold " A " pin as a recognition of their work in debating. Charles Webster and George Hill received pins this year. Pearl pins, signifying participation in debates for two years were awarded to Thurman Wilkins, Harry Slack, and William Divine. Local Oratorical Contest Every year it is the custom at Alhambra to hold a local oratorical contest, in which several students present various orations of famous men. The judging of this contest is not in any way based upon subject matter, but merely upon excellency in presentation and delivery. There were eighteen speech students participating in the preliminaries, while six of these eighteen were chosen to speak before the upper division assembly on March 24th. The speakers were Phylis Armstrong, Harry Slack, Kenneth Bevan, Edward Schwartz, and Ernest Burley. The three judges for the finals included Mrs. Gleason, former Oral Arts teacher at A. H. S.; Mr. Lawrence White, Principal of the Continuation School; and Mr. Marriot, our Postmaster. Edward Schwartz, a comparative novice at the art of public speaking, won the first prize of ten dollars with the stirring oration " A Memorial Day Address, " while the second prize of five dollars was awarded to Harry Slack, an excellent and well-known speaker. One Hundred Thirty-three Webster Americanism Contest This year the American Legion Post of Alhambra sponsored an oratorical contest, the subject matter of which was to be along the lines of Americanism. This contest was more than a local affair, since district finals were held, to which the winner of the Alhambra division was sent. The prize offered was five dollars for first place, while in the district finals a trophy was awarded. The speeches for this contest were all written by the students presenting them. It was the purpose of this competition to awaken within the participants and their associates a deeper and more clearly defined sense of true patriotism. The Moorish representatives at this oratorical were: William Divine, Hugh Nelson, Myrtle Albers, Robert Kistler, Charles Webster, Virginia Sampson, and Richard Richards. Every A. H. S. speaker showed the results of weeks of untiring preparation and that final touch in delivery which only Miss Walker can impart. The success of this contest was due in a large measure to the hearty co-opera- tion of the American Legion Post of Alhambra, and we at this time wish to extend our sincerest appreciation to them for this opportunity to take part in such an interest- ing and highly instructive oratorical. The contestants are to be congratulated for the manner in which they upheld the traditional Moorish standards of speech excellence. Charles Webster won the local contest at the American Legion Post of Alhambra. Webster went to Covina for the final contest and won first place, receiving the beautiful trophy given by Mr. W. W. Hendrick, Americanism Chairman of the Eighteenth District of the American Legion. One Hundred Thirty-tcwr MUSIC Girls ' Senior Glee Club Working together to accomplish the best possible results, the Girls ' Senior Glee Club, made up of the best voices in the school, starts to work at the very first of the year to perfect a number of songs so they can be ready to sing on short notice. Each girl counts it a privilege to be in the glee club, selected by Mrs. Augusta Clements from a long list of applicants made up of the Junior Glee Clubs. In order to sing on all occasions, the girls are chosen not only for their ability to sing, but for their interest, understanding, and dependability. It has been said that you can always depend on the girls to sing on short notice. All that one has to do is to ask them by 8 A. M. the day that you want them to sing and they will be ready. The Glee Club has presented several programs, among them one at the First Methodist Church, Woman ' s Club, and at several High School Assemblies.

Membership in the club is limited to forty. There are two junior clubs in school, which meet during the day. These fellows are in Junior Glee until their voices are settled and they can do more difficult work. We kept two engagements to sing out this year; one at the Womens Clubhouse and the other at the American Legion Club. At our Christmas assembly we combined with the girls and sang the " Hallelujah " chorus. Mrs. Beebe, our director, has been working with four of our best voices in a quartet. They have been very successful, and have had many invitations to sing out. Eugene Sullivan, our accompanist, has worked with us for two years and has proved very efficient. Last Semester the Girls Glee Club invited the Boys Glee to a Halloween party at the Elks Club. It was a very successful party and everyone had a good time.

Although the name is " Senior Orchestra, " it is composed of not only members of the Senior Classes, but also of students who have progressed from the Junior and Beginning Orchestra. The aim of this organization has always been to put on a dignified performance, and to play as professionals would. This year it has come nearer to this aim than ever before. Besides playing together, students are given an opportunity to direct the orchestra, and in this way they receive a valuable experience in this musical field. This year the Senior Orchestra has been studying several overtures, selections, and novelty numbers. Some of these they have played very splendidly for the two Senior plays, the Commencements of both winter and summer classes, the Christmas program, and for some assemblies.

The band is organized, formed, trained, and drilled for the various appearances of school and civic activities throughout the year. Every student in the band rising from the ranks of preparatory orchestra and instrument classes must undergo a rigid examination to meet the requirements for entrance. A strenuous program of routine is necessary to prepare the band for its appear- ances at school and civic events. To prepare a repertoire for the year, it becomes necessary to study and rehearse at least fifty selections. The Band has this year played at all home games during the football season; Exchange Club Convention; Charity Polo Game; Y. M. C. A. Father and Sons ' Night; American Legion ' s Armistice Day Parade and Service at the Park, as well as for our own assembly rallies for games and debates.

Kittle Henderson Yell Leaders About the hardest job on the campus of a school as large as Alhambra is the maintenance of a rousing school spirit. By far the greatest portion of this responsibility falls upon the shoulders of our yell leaders, who were this year none other than Nate Henderson (Yell King), Wayne Kittleson, and Ken Bevan. During the gridiron season football players are showered with glory, but none work harder, or more faithfully, than our cheer leaders, upon whom falls the seemingly impossible task of bolstering up the student body ' s spirit and enthusiasm when every- thing goes dead wrong. It is no easy task to lead several hundred students in their rooting, to inspire them with pep, especially when the outlook is blackest. Taking it for all and all, the yell leaders hold one of the most responsible positions we have to offer, one of the hardest, and one of the most honorable. Fulfilling their duties properly takes judgment as well as enthusiasm. Yelling, for instance, cannot go on while plays are in progress. In spite of the many difficulties facing them, our leaders this year have borne themselves magnificently. All through the season they have been quick on the trigger, on their feet instantly to cheer injured men. Always they have kept in mind the courtesy due the visiting teams, and have been ready at all times to jump in with wild enthusiasm to turn the tide in favor of the Moors. One Hundred Forty-three Coach Pursell Bjorlcman Nuccio Williams Coach Hobbs Varsity Football Ogden Stockton Although the Moor Varsity of 1932 did not come out on top, the team had the best of coaches — Head-Coach George Hobbs and Line-Coach Bob Pursell. On behalf of the team I wish to thank all those connected with this season, and I feel certain that all of the graduating players will join me in wishing Coach Hobbs and Captain Stockton ' s 1933 team the best of luck. CHARLES OGDEN, Captain. Having been elected captain of the 1933 Moor Varsity football team, I wish to congratulate Captain Ogden and the 1932 team for their courage and untiring efforts through all the obstacles they had to overcome. In viewing the material for next year and considering the master coaching of George Hobbs, together with the help of the Student Body, we should have an excellent team. VARD ALBERT STOCKTON, Captain-Elect. ALHAMBRA vs. SOUTH PASADENA Opening the 1932 football season with their age old rivals, the Moors over- whelmed a weaker Tiger team by a very decisive score. Both teams played hard and fought until the last minute of the game. The first touchdown was made in the opening quarter when Archibald broke One Hundred Forty-tour Davis Fike Goss Smith Hawlish ' r rv loose for a fifty yard run. Walt Sefton converted with a place kick. Alhambra soon gained possession of the ball, after kicking to South Pasadena and marched down the field to the four yard line from which Sefton scored on a line kick. Another Alhambra score was made in the second quarter when Archibald went six yards to cross the goal. The attempt for the extra point failed. The Tiger touchdown came in the third quarter as the result of an intercepted pass. The ball was carried up to the Alhambra four yard stripe, from there Sims, Tiger fullback, scored on a line plunge. In the last quarter many Alhambra substitutions were made. In fact, practically everyone on the Moor bench saw service. This probably prevented the Moors from running up a larger score than they did. Vard Stockton ran some great interference, as did Hal Kelly. The only casualty of the hard fought game was an injury to Joe Nuccio ' s knee, which bothered him the rest of the season. ALHAMBRA vs. GLENDALE Following the Tiger game, Alhambra officially opened its league season in a game against the Slendale Dynamiters, a team which was supposed to have material equal to that of any team in the league. In a very close and exciting game, Alhambra marched directly down the field to score within three minutes after the start. Nuccio plunged off tackle for the touchdown. Hal Kelly ' s attempted conversion failed. In the second quarter Glendale came back to score on a pass after two fairly good runs made by Bartlett, speedy Glendale halfback. The try for the extra point was prevented by Alhambra ' s charging line. One Hundred Forty-five The second half was a very hard fought battle with neither team making any progress. It looked as though the game would end in a tie. With aV ut two minutes to play Alhambra completed a pass which put the ball in the DynarrfT+w f territory. Two more passes were incompleted. The ball was on the thirty yard line with only one-half of a minute to play, when Joe Nuccio ran through the middle of the Glen- dale line like a streak of lightning to score the winning touchdown. Sefton kicked goal for the extra point. Stombaugh showed lots of drive in his ball carrying in this game, and Lyn Jackson played a fine game, especially on defense when he stopped some of Glen- dale ' s sweeping end runs. ALHAMBRA vs. SAN DIEGO When the Moors left for San Diego, their chances for a victory seemed very good. However, the great crowd of students and townspeople who drove south knew that they were to witness a very hard fought struggle. The first quarter of the game was rather slow and even. Action started early in the second quarter when Archibald, going through a big hole on the right side of the line, ran twenty yards to score, giving the Moors their only touchdown. The conversion was successful, and the half soon ended with Alhambra leading with a score of 7-0. During the second half the Moor line functioned strongly, but the Hilltoppers were not to be beaten. They tried desperately to score in the third quarter, but the fighting Moors withstood their attack. Soon afer the start of the final quarter, Pennuelas, hard driving San Diego full- back, smashed over the goal line to score for the Hilltoppers. The attempt for con- version failed, however, and Alhambra still held the lead by a one point margin. San One Hundred Forty-six rk 4 Griffith Stockton Diego came back again determined to score. They tried to pierce the Moor line, but with little success. As a last resort, Coach Hobbs Adams sent in his best place kicker. The Hilltoppers then tried two field goals but the hard charging line from Alhambra broke through and blocked them both. A Moor victory seemed certain, but in the last few moments of play, Mushy Pollock, little quarterback, ran sixteen yards to score the winning touchdown for the Hilltoppers. The game was as good and exciting as any game played during the season, and San Diego won only after a terrific battle. Harold Smith, Len Collier, Vard Stockton, and several others, played excellent games and deserve much credit for the team ' s fine defensive stand in the second half. A severe wrist sprain suffered by Lyn Jackson in this game kept him from the team for nearly three weeks. The last two games between Alhambra and San Diego have been very closely contested, and a fine school rivalry is developing between them. ALHAMBRA vs. U. S. C. FRESHMEN In a P. T. A. benefit game a fighting Moor team playing against heavy odds in weight and experience, held the Trojan Frosh to a 7-0 score. Although Alhambra lost, the team played one of the best games of the year and considered it a moral victory. The Frosh touchdown came in the third quarter when Dittburner, huge Frosh tackle, blocked a punt behind the Moor goal line, and Bishop, U. S. C. fullback, fell upon it. Bishop also made the conversion. Captain Ogden added some excitement to the game when he caught a pass and was headed for a touchdown only to be called back because the official ruled that he stepped out of bounds. The game lacked some of its expected color because Rod Cameron and Bud Merriam, former A. H. S. stu- dents, who are now at U. S. C, could not play because of injuries. One Hundred Forty-seven Sefton Thompson Spring Stombaugh ALHAMBRA vs. LONG BEACH With the Moor team functioning perfectly and showing a great deal of versatility, Long Beach was handed a 15-0 white washing. In the second quarter, Dick Carroll fell on a visitor ' s blocked punt for the first score. The try for extra point failed. The next touchdown came from a perfectly executed 25-yard pass from Sefton to Archibald over the goal line. The conversion was successful. Takahashi, tiny Poly quarterback, was completely boxed up by the fine defensive work of Cosgrove, Collier and Becker. In the final quarter another Long Beach punt was blocked for a safety, adding two points to Alhambra ' s score. Vard Stockton, who was out of this game because of injuries, was very efficiently replaced by Jesse Fike, who played a fine game at running guard. The Moors in this game showed a better perfection of all-around football than at any other time during the year. Their running, punting, and passing, as well as their defensive play, was very outstanding. ALHAMBRA vs. SANTA ANA In their successful march to their second consecutive Coast League prep cham- pionship, Coach Tex Oliver ' s smashing Santa Ana Saints men defeated the Hobbsmen on Armistice Day. Before the largest crowd to storm Moor Field in recent years, the fighting Alhambrans bowed to the neat working and hard plunging Saint machine. During the first quarter Alhambra played on even terms with Santa Ana, but gradually the heavy Saint backs led their team to a point where they held an advan- tage for the rest of the game. Floyd Montgomery, star halfback, scored Santa Ana ' s first touchdown in the second quarter on a pass from Mitchell. Their attempted conversion failed. One Hundred Forty-eight M« J Archibald Tucker, Saint back, bucked over the goal line for the second tally which came in the third quarter. This touchdown was well earned because it took them four downs to make three yards. Captain Kidder kept the Moors deep in their own territory most of the time by his long well placed kicks. Santa Ana reached the finals in the Southern California Championship play-offs, and it was no disgrace to be beaten by such a team as theirs. ALHAMBRA vs. PASADENA The Pasadena Bulldogs came to Alhambra on Thanksgiving Day with a very much improved team and went home for their turkey dinner with victory by a one point margin. In this final league game Coach Hobb ' s Moors had a victory in their hands for over three quarters of the game. Bob Stombaugh, speedy ball carrier, scored for Alhambra in the second quarter. The conversion which might have tied the game was unsuccessful. Having held the Bulldogs scoreless for three quarters, the Moors were surprised by a sudden release of scoring power, when the Pasadenans opened up a drive which landed them over the final Moor ribbon. Haradon, hard driving halfback, scored for the Bulldogs. They converted on a freak pass which caught the Moors unaware. Lyn Jackson and Hal Kelley, Alhambra backs, threw some nice passes in the closing minutes of the game, but the time was too short to obtain a score. Jackson worked at quarterback most of the game in order to gain experience at the position which he will undoubtedly play next year. Hobbs introduced a new shift which looked and worked very well. It somewhat resembled Howard Jones ' U.S.C. shift. Sixteen lettermen played their last game for Alhambra, those being: Captain Chuck Ogden and Glenn Gloss, ends; Bob Archibald and Bob Stombaugh, quarter- backs; Joe Nuccio, fullback; Hal Kelley and Wal ter Sefton, halfbacks; Len Collier and One Hundred Forty-nine Mulligan Johnson Joe Schiada, centers; Harold Smith, Jesse Fike and Gardner Griffith, guards; Bob Cosgrove, ' Dan Hawlish, Bob Zetlmaier and Carl Bjorkman, tackles. Alhambra will havl saCjfbQ letter ien returning next year. •The teairi ' worked hard this season and although not winning any championship, the fellows deserve a great deal of credit for the good showing they did make and the hard luck and difficulties that they overcame. Coach George Hobbs and Assistant Coach Bob Pursell cannot receive credit enough for the hard work they did in grooming the team into one which was feared by every other team in the league. Many people thought that the school spirit this year was not so good, but for a school of this size excellent cooperation was shown. The enthusiasm and fighting spirit of the Moors has always been recognized, and this season was no exception. An organized rooting section was not carried on very effectively because some of the games were so exciting and the fans became so emotional that it was impossible to keep an organized yelling group. It was more like a great number of individual rooting sections. The three yell leaders who carried out their jobs very efficiently were Wayne Kittleson, Nate Henderson, and Kenneth Bevan. They not only led the yells at the games, but helped develop good spirit in the assemblies. Mr. Ulmer and his blue and gold band also merit a lot of thanks for instilling that fighting spirit into the students. At a banquet given to the team by Coach Hobbs, Vard Stockton was elected captain for next year ' s team. Len Collier received both the Jack Earle and Lyell Pucket trophies for the -most valuable man on the team. Collier was also selected as All-Coast League center and All-Southern California prep center. Captain Charles Ogden was selected as first string All-Coast League end. Several other fellows were selected on the second string or given honorable mention. One Hundred Fifty m± J I I I.

Only by virtue of an airtight defense were the Bees able to keep their undefeated record. Coach Fryer ' s boys found the Santa Ana Bees an easy target, and won decisively. " Toby " Heeb and Julius Nuccio both scored for Alhambra. One of the two attempts for the points after touchdown was successful. The Moor lightweights dropped their final loop game to Pasadena, the Coast League champs. The Alhambrans played a good game, but were outclassed by a superior team.

Varsity Basketball The basketball season opened with Alhambra ' s prospects for a good season looking fair. However, under the expert guidance of Coach Bob Pursell coaching his first year of Class A basketball, a very fine team was developed. After playing several practice games in which the Moors were quite successful, we opened the league season in a game with Pasadena. During the first quarter the Moors walked away with the Bulldogs, but before the half had ended the Pasadenans put on a scoring spree which left the score tied at the end of the half. The second half was more thrilling and neither team was ever more than two points ahead. Bud Anderson ' s side shots came in very handy, and the game ended with a close score of 24-23 in favor of Alhambra. Walt Sefton and Bud Johnson were outstanding for the Moors. Long Beach came to Alhambra for the second game of the season. Starting slowly, the game soon developed into a close-fought struggle, the Moors finally win- ning, 19-16. Alhambra had a distinct lead at the end of the first half, but Long Beach sank several baskets in the second to give the Moors a scare. Walt Sefton was high point man while Bud Winterbottom and George Bettinger played fine defensive games. One Hundred Fifty-two By defeating Santa Ana with a decided margin, the Moors won their third straight victory. The Saints were trailing 18-5 at the end of the half and could not improve enough to hold the blue and gold team from giving them a decisive trimming to the tune of 32-15. Walt Sefton was again high point man, while Bud Johnson ' s fast floor work helped the team ' s progress. The Moors ' next opponents were the Glendale Blasters, who went down to defeat at the hands of the strong Alhambra team by a score of 32-12. Walt Sefton was again high point man, and George Bettinger showed his jumping ability by winning the tip-off almost every time. The following week San Diego came to Alhambra with a strong and undefeated team. In one of the fastest games of the season, the Moors defeated the Hilltoppers by a score of 25-14. All the players on the teams played faultless basketball, and they looked more like representatives of college teams than of high school. Sefton, Anderson, and Johnson showed up very well and made all but two of the team ' s points. In a return game with San Diego the following afternoon, the Grey Castle men gained revenge by defeating Alhambra 23-21. Such an exciting game as this is very seldom seen or even read about. The game was very close all the way and ended favoring San Diego with a score of 21-20. The next game was a return one with Pasadena at the Alhambra Gym. The Moors seemed to reach their peak against San Diego and were therefore a little slow against the Bulldogs. During the third quarter, Alhambra made a spurt which brought them to almost an even chance, only to have Pasadena win out at the end of the game by a score of 21-18. Substitutes played a large part of this game and showed up about as well as the regulars. Chances for a championship were shattered when the Moors lost to Long Beach in their second game. Walt Sefton, outstanding scorer for Alhambra, was so well guarded that he made only one point during the game. Dick David and Bud Winter- bottom were the outstanding Moors on the floor and accounted for most of the points. Takahashi, Long Beach forward, was largely responsible for the downfall of the Moors. Some of the Santa Ana football players came to the rescue of the basketball team, and as a result they were successful in defeating the Alhambra team by quite a decisive score. Sefton and Anderson were also guarded quite effectively in this game. The never-say-die Moor team closed the season with a very impressive victory over Glendale. Pursell ' s boys showed that they could still renew their championship form and downed the Blasters 24-15. Alhambra trailed 6-0 at the end of the first quarter but soon tied the score. From that point on, the game was all Alhambra ' s. Walt Sefton staged a grand comeback by scoring sixteen points. Len Collier and Bud Johnson wound up the season with fine games, both defensively and offensively, and Bettinger ' s work at center was also more like his old form. Coach Bob Pursell deserves a great deal of credit for the hard work he did in developing such a fine team. Each team member also deserves credit for his hard work and effort in giving Alhambra a good basketball team. Those winning letters were: Bud Johnson, Walt Sefton, George Bettinger, Jr., Len Collier, Dick David, Wayne Kittleson, R. E. Thompson, John Folsom, Bud Winter- bottom and Gordon Kelley, Manager. One Hundred Fifty-three CUM B ' BAtKtTBAlt SCOft S« AUf AM6M30l»tfmi4 mm umrns UUAM6RA 25 " PASADENA Stf SAOENA £8 AL4IAMBRA 26 2 J£N6 BET . 28 One Hundred Fifty-four - One Hundred Fifty-five Varsity Baseball With several lettermen returning, the varsity baseball team ' s chances look very encouraging. Coach Fryer worked hard with the fellows and in their several pre- season practice games, they made a very good showing. Most of these games were played against Franklin, Lincoln, Hollywood, and Monrovia High Schools, and Pasa- dena Junior College. The Moors opened the Coast League season in a game with Glendale on the Monterey Park diamond. Admission was to be charged to these games, but after some discussion it was decided that the fans should be favored with free admission. The game against the Dynamiters was quite a thrilling affair in the earlier stages when neither team was more than one run ahead of the other. In the sixth inning with score tied at 3 all, Max West made a two-base hit scoring two runs which put the Fryermen ahead. Four more runs were soon chalked up, and the game ended 9 to 3 in favor of the Moors. At the time of this writing the Moors have not played Santa Ana, Long Beach, or Pasadena, but it is expected that they will make a good showing against each of them. John Olhasso, Moor second baseman, was one of the heaviest hitters on the team this year, making quite a number of home runs. Max West, Al Smith, and Herman Corradini completed the infield. Two catchers showed up very well during the season, Walt Sefton and Joe Schiada. Bud Winterbottom, a letterman, also filled his position at [eft field very effectively. Coach Fryer deserves a great deal of credit for the team, or-varsity team under the guidance of Coach Bob Pursell made a fine shafvin in its games during the season. Most of these felbBws will return next year a4d v rh their help and the returning aJSeveral lette myn a very good team should n One Hundred Fifty-six 3p Varsity Track At the time of this writing, it is unknown how far the! track team as a whole will progress in the league meets. However, it is certain that several of Coach Grumbles ' proteges are destined to do big things in their respective events and will probably show up well in the Coast League tryouts and finals. Bob Stombaugh and Joe Nuccio, two fellows who finish their high school careers this ' season, are expected to win over all other competition in the 100-yard dash. Dick Carroll and Ed. Spring, our hurdle men, are both quite fast and should make it plenty tough for any of their opponents. Bob Archibald and R. E. Thompson have both shown prospects of broad jumping over twenty-one feet. Garver, a 440-man, Doran, and Pearne will undoubtedly show up very well. Bill Elferdink and Dick Behm are the outstanding milers on the squad, and Heeb, Hindermarsh, and Banks are all showing up very well. Green and Meinhardt are Alhambra ' s hopes in the shot, and Bettinger, Fisk, and Bartlett are the Moor high jumpers. The A. H.S. relay team, which is supposed to be on a par with any team in Southern California, is composed of Bob Stombaugh, Bob Archibald, Dick Carroll R. E. Thompson, and Joe Nuccio. One Hundred Fifty-seven Varsity Tennis Tennis interest was kept up this year as it has always been in the past. Coach Home, the veteran tennis mentor, has always turned out a very good team, and this year ' s was no exception. During the first of the year two annual tournaments were held. The Bob Behlow Cup tourney, which is for the school singles championship, was won for the second time by Norman Buck. Buck paired with Charles Hunt to win the two cups given by the Houser brothers for the champion doubles team. Only two men returned from last year ' s championship team, Norman Buck and Robert Clover. The others and their respective team positions are: George Johnston, second singles; Loren Raymond, third singles; Douglas McGarry, fourth singles; Lee Loop and Douglas Imhoff, first doubles; Bob Clover and Bob Galloway, second doubles. A new system was adopted this year which allowed the legal changing of men in the lineups from time to time. In that way the first singles player might team up with one of the others to play as one of the doubles teams. This plan has met with the favor of most of the coaches and will probably be used from now on. Alfred Lafleur was the efficient manager this year. One Hundred Fifty-eight M A yt iV ' - ' (K,l Signatures j . ■ £ ■ " ■ ■ ' yC_(f U px Aa - £ rttfr GIRLS ' SPORTS One Hundred Sixty-two Basketball Such a contrast from our last sport! Speed is the key-note of this game. A jump, a toss-up, and the ball is in the hands of a quickly moving girl who is now shooting the ball into the basket. These motions add to one of the fastest games of the season. This year the turnouts were so large for Basket-Ball that it was necessary to divide the Sophomore and Freshman classes. This made about six games for each team to play. The Junior-Senior game was hard fought, and the Seniors came out on top. Their able captain was Tillie Miller. Volley Ball Volley Ball, the first sport of the season, was also the first sport to be under the management of the Algia members in place of the Gym teachers. Although Volley Ball is a minor sport, all of the classes had very large turnouts and co-operated with their coaches very well. This is one of the few sports in which the corrective girls can take part. All the inter-class games were very close and exciting, but the Junior-Senior game topped them all. After three exciting games the Juniors were victors. Evelyn Cerny was captain of the victorious team. Speedball Enthusiasm ranked high with Speedball. It looks as though this is soon to become +he leading sport. The Sophomores and Freshmen had about thirty girls out, which is an extraordinarily large number. Although this was the first Speedball the Freshmen had ever played, they came very close to defeating the Seniors. The Junior-Senior game is bound to be a tough one, and it is hard to tell just who will win. The teams have been very fortunate in getting referees from Pasadena Junior College. One Hundred Sixty-three One Hundred Sixty-four Natural Dancing Natural Dancing, a class of rythm and grace, has been under the able supervision of Mrs. Thornton this past semester. Prior to this semester there were three classes, one of which Miss Linden was in charge. The beginning classes deal only with rythms and child studies in interpretive dances, while the advance class works with scarfs and does more complicated dances. The work this year has been very good in both classes, and it is hoped that more girls will take up this type of gym work. Archery Although this activity is considered a minor sport, increased interest has been shown by the girls. Miss Canavan, who is the coach and instructor, has given much of her time to teach the girls accuracy in this sport. Archery emblems are awarded to those girls who have made a score of 100 points. For each additional hundred points, ten points are given toward G. A. A. Tennis Tennis has been conducted in a different way than in previous years. It is under the direction of Barbara Georgi. In the years before there have been classes after school for beginners, but this year, as there was no teacher supervising, just girls who knew the game came out. For those girls who wish to learn the fundamentals of tennis, there is a class that has just been started this semester which is the same as a gym class. The tennis girls have not played many matches this year, but in those they have played they have been quite successful. Matches were played at the South Pasadena Play Day and at Glendale.
