The orchestra, under the splendid direction of Mr. Schott, was very
busy this term. tOn February twenty-seventh it played for the Rivoli Thea-
ter Party. It also played for an entertainment given under the direction
of Miss Streightif, as well as in the Junior and Senior Assemblies on the
twenty-first of February.
Last term, some of the older players left, but despite that, the or-
chestra performed successfully. Let us hope our orchestra increases in
the number of its members, and prospers next term.

SENIOR GIRLS' GLEE CLUB
Every year our club increases in membership. This term forty girls
have joined. It is our ambition to develop the singing quality which
gives pleasure to those who hear us. Twice a week we meet and sing songs
under the direction of Mrs. Rhodes. We are pleased to think that we can
furnish programs at assemblies, as well as entertaining the public.
Our costume consists of a white middy and skirt and a red tie. Where-
ever we go, we sing our best, and hope that we do credit to Burbank School.

SENIOR BOYS' GLEE CLUB
The Senior Boys' Glee Club is composed of eighth and ninth grade boys.
It meets every Tuesday and Thursday during the eighth period. The boys '
have a splendid leader, Mrs. Rhodes, one of the music teachers. They prac-
tice familiar songs and learn new ones. They never know when they will be
called upon to sing before an assembly, or at a theater. When singing for
large crowds, the members wear red sashes around their waists.
There were a great many boys who took advantage of the wonderful op-
portunity this term, and joined. The Glee Club always welcomes new members
so there is a chance for you, if you can sing, and want to belong,

T THE BURBANK COURT
As time advances, the offenders of Burbank become fewer and fewer ev-
ery day. If the good record continues, Burbank students will soon become
one hundred percent citizens, and the court will not be needed at all. Mr,
McCaleb, the judge, will have little enough to do, if no one need attend
the court. This would never have been possible but for the students' co-
operation in upholding the school laws.
The Burbank Court was opened in August, 1929, to control some of the
students who could not obey the traffic rules. It has been so effective
that outsiders often speak of how courteous our students are, and the time
will soon come when there will be no offenders at all.

STUDENT TRAFFIC CONTROL
Burbank's Indoor Junior Traffic for this semester has been bigger and
better than ever before. The term began with practically all new members.
The.group consists of: Edward Tscheekar, chief of police: Robert Hemphill,
bailiff: Evert Lappinen, assistant chief: and Pierre Mailho, lieutenant.
The court officials are: Mr. McCaleb, judge: Helen Kemp and Cecelia
Mansonen, filing and recording secretaries.
The indoor traffic squad is made up of the following: Lucy Macagno:
Paul Berndt: Fred Angella, Erwin Brown: David Drake: Cecelia Ferreira: Min-
nie Rossetto: Louis Tognolini: Matilda Ramos: Gena Ferrando: Virginia Park-
inson: Bessie Ritz: Evelyn Delphing Edith Valentini: Robert Hemphill, Esther
Welp: Grant Gustofsen: Dorothy Herbert: Elvera Miguel: and Olga Montemagni,
, The court is one of our school's many systems of maintaining order.
The chief duty of the officials is to keep order in the halls. They must
see that no student runs or makes a disturbance. If a pupil receives a
ticket for his disorder, he must appear in the Burbank Court. The penalty
is inflicted in accordance with the seriousness of the offence.
The band is an activity that all boys should like if they can play an
instrument. We need several more instruments and players to give proper
balance to the ensemble. We meet Mondays and Wednesdays for practice.
The band has done quite a bit of outside playing this term. It has enter-
tained the school a number of times, as well as playing at theaters and
other places. Mr. Hobbs, the instructor, always gives his best, and keeps
the band in good condition. Each term we lose a number of good pupils, but
also receive new ones, so the band does not suffer such a great loss,

Near the first of the term, forty-five boys said they wanted to join
the Aviation Club, but only ten boys joined brcause they had to furnish
their own materials for the airplanes. Finally, four boys remained in the
club. Only boys who are willing to keep busy, and who have flying planes
are accepted. The boys have a fine time making models for the planes,
They also have a chance to use the machinery of the shop. Why not join?

JUNIOR SCIENCE CLUB
In the Junior Science Club the pupil gets to choose which study he
likes bestg minerals, stones, insects, shells, stuffed birds or animals.
There are many different shells which the members try to name.
The first week of school the club members were taken to San Francisco
to the seashore and museum. At the seashore they gathered many shells.
They have built a little nursery where they keep many different kinds
of flowers which they get from various places.

The Stamp Club, under the direction of Miss McAllister, accomplished
quite a bit this term. This club meets every Thursday to discuss and
trade stamps. The club elected Alan Freeborn, a pupil, for its president.
This term, members of the cluh were especially interested in studying
United States stamps. A visit was paid to the Berkeley High School Stamp
Club to see the display of stamps. It is a fine club for those who col-
lect stamps, as much may be learned, and there are chances to trade.

THE KODAK CLUB
Although the Kodak Club is a rather small group, it does splendid
work. The membership is limited to boys of the ninth grade who have ko-
daks, and are interested in photography. This term, nine only enrolled.
These boys meet once a week during the activity period and discuss
the pictures which they have taken and developed. They usually make snap
shots for the Wizard. There is an art in experienced photography, and
these boys are learning it fast. This term, they were able to catch some
of the teachers in familiar poses. They hope you enjoy them in the Wizard
