Edison Junior High School, a school year-book. We have worked very hard and Very long, but if our product meets with your approval our time and energies have been Well spent. We have tried to make this fourth Edison Annual by far its best one. We hope you Will like it's new, gay "coat," it's block prints, it's-Well, all of it!

Transportation is the symbol of a journey, and the one that we are interested in is the trip through this school and on to the senior high school. The two classes represented in this book compose two more units in the journey of the boys and girls from Edison Junior High School to the senior high schools of this city. The Principal believes that these classes are better fitted to travel the educational road than any that have gone beforr With best wishes for a safe and happy journey through the new surroundings, ' Page Thia-few' 5 l I , I , l 5 4 I A l F: L,,,...-. -r ,sr . , .,, A WI-IERFYS YOUR PASSPORT! Since this annual edition of the Wizard concerns trans- portation, may I ask just one question, "Where's your pass- port ?" You know that the very best passport you can take on your journey to the Senior High School is a good report card plus a splendid record in Citizenship. One of my jobs is to check the credits for graduation. As, Bs, Cs, Ds, and --- don't say it-FS! What record are you earning for yourself? Is the answer all As and Bs? Your's for thrift, or good management of your time and energy. CAROBEL MURPHEY, Gi-rls' Vice-Principal. Page Foufrteen A l TRANSPORTATION You have seen in your short life-time most remarkable changes in the various types of transportation. You have observed many changes in automobiles and flying machines, and you will very likely live to see even more Wonderful de- velopments in these lines. ' - ' So with your school work you have passed successfully through the nine grades with a most wonderful develop- ment both in your physical and mental growth. As you con- tinue in senior high school, in college, in the factory, in the office, in the home, you will meet many new situations and you will have to adapt yourselves to the new jobs at hand. We are sure you will do so. We hope you will be most happy and prosperous in whatever line of work falls to you to do. Frederick W.

The all around boy or girl is not only strong in scholarship, but he or she is interested in being strong physically, in being a helpful courteous school citizen, and in being thrifty, industrious, and depen- dable outside of school. The Pentalphean Society which upholds this ideal, will be used as the background for the June program. Groups of A9 students will show how scholarship is rewarded, how the student service work is carried on, how physical edu- cation helps the students, how character and courtesy are improved, and finally how home service is encouraged. The dancing on the program will be very attractive. It will be done by members of the class. There Will be a class will, and the songs will be "Nightfall in Granada", sung by the A9 Chorus, and "Dear Edison, Our School," sung by the entire class.

L A Page Forty-seifen THE ART STAFF AND THEIR WORK The theme of the art studies in the Wizard of 1930 is "Modern Transportation", and the linoleum block ill-ustra- tions are representative of this theme. The unusual feature of these illustrations is that they are not only designed but are also engraved and cut in linoleum by members of our commercial art classes. Usually this engraving is done by commercial engraving firms, but our annual has the decided distinction of being a strictly student project. The excel- lence of this student Work speaks for itself. We have never had such a beautiful annual, and We are endebted to the art staff, and to Mr. Wilson and Mrs. Phillips, Whose picture appears at the top of this page, for this fact. The linoleum cuts in this book have been printed in three colors and the cover in two. In these illustrations we have tried to visualize for you travel by air, railway, Water and automobile. In our air-craft designs We have featured the large passenger dirigibles as Well as various types of Planes. Interstate and international commerce We have represented by railroad and ship designs. The automobile has its place in the commercial as Well as the social life of our nation. We are offering illustrations of fine passenger automobiles and of the huge trucks which are important units in mrdern transportation. It is this theme of modern transportation and World commerce that underlies the art studies of the 1930 Wizard. We of the art staff offer these, our best eiorts, for your consideration. Page Forty-eight Q THE ANNUAL PRINTERS When these Annual Printers printed your annual they made two pages at a time. That means that they fed a sheet of paper into the press 75 timesg the pictoral section required an extra printing for the orange background, and the eight art pages required three impressions each and the covers, inside and out, demanded four more press trips. This makes 103 impressions in all. But you know, there were 2000 other books made--206,000 times somebody's hands dipped into the press. At the same time another hand was putting a temporary sheet of scratch paper between the freshly printed sheets. ,Folding-what bliss-the Parent- Teachers Association bought us an automatic folding ma- chine, and now life's labors are lighter. But when it comes to assembling the 48 separate parts of the books the boys passed that over to senior girls. Stapling, trimming, and gluing completed three months of very intensiveactivity. Many of the boys worked not only during class period but during assembly, at noon, after school, and until late hours at night. Those who worked late, of course, came out with some money to spend for themselves. And for every minute of student's time spent, we should not forget the teacher-time that Went with it. Mr. Wells is the one we should thank for the excellent work in printing which has always characterized Edison Annuals. Lest someone think that so many fifty cent payments might mean a profit in this business of publishing our annual, just note some of the following figures. Our naner alone cost over 3400, and a little over S500 must go to the engraver who makes the cuts for all our pictures. Last year's linotyping cost was some 350. And so it goes. Page Forty-niwie FALL SEMESTER OFFICERS President Vice-President Secretary Yell Leader Elmer Wait Teresa Baron Beatrice Brassen Joe Burke STUDENT BODY ASSOCIATION Each year for four years the Edison students have met twice a year to elect their leaders for the semester. The student body co-operation has been marvelous. Without the co-operation of the students, the hall or yard depart- ments Would be of little service. The officers of the student body have led us to higher standards and more complete success. Edison is now in many Ways a student self-govern- ing school. 4 The Work of our faithful officers has been of fine quali- ty and the least We can do is to .try to live up to the high standards that they have set for us. Since our school opened in February, 1926, Miss Frost has been the Very capable and popular faculty sponsor of the Edison Student Body Association. SPRING SEMESTER OFFICERS President Vice-President Secretary Yell Leader Ishmael Williams Gertrude Burkett Blanche Wenner Leroy Danielson Page Fifty N 8 . X ,E X V . N . ' V IH- fn! I X I The Golden Circle is the youngest organization at Edison Junior High, and yet it is already one of the most vital ones. Ever since our school Was organized We have been looking forward to the time when we would organize some sort of a club for all the girls of the school, and our dream has now been realized. Three regular meetings have been held for the purpose of discussing the rules and regulations of the club. Splendid programs were given and Golden Circle meeting day is eagerly looked forward to. Every girl in school is a member of this club, and one representative from each homeroom belongs to the Inner Circle, which is the governing body of the Golden Circle. The Inner Circle chooses from its mem- bership the Council, which is one girl from each of the six grades. ISQQ picture belowj The faculty sponsor and adviser of this new organization is Miss Conover, and the "honorary sponsor" is our girls' vice principal, Dr. Mur- phey. ' Page Fifty-one The Edison P. T. A. is about to close one of the most successful years since its organization four years ago. Our present membership of 764 is the largest We have ever had, and in spite of that fact there has been greater home co- operation this year than ever before. Father also is begin- ning to be more interested in our Work for 265 of our mem- bers are fathers. Some of the special activities which the P.-T. A. has sponsored this year are the B7 Reception, Fathers' Night, the Silver Tea, the Express Luncheon, the Carnival, and Founders' Day. Funds raised by the association in their various enterprises and used at our own school go to buy milk and lunches for students who need them but who can- not afford to buy them. On behalf of our association, We wish to extend to the faculty and student body our appreciation for their splen- did cooperation in our membership drive, Christmas bas- kets, the annual carnival and in our regular meetings. The executive board, whose picture appears below, speaks on behalf of the Whole organization. Page Fifty-two D The Wizard, our school paper, is edited by a class called the journalism class. It has ten members, and its teacher and sponsor is Mrs. Eklund. Edison Junior High has published a very creditable school paper ever since the first semester of its existence, and Mrs. Eklund has been the capable and faithful sponsor from the very first issue. The whole student body owes her a debt of gratitude. The Wiz- ard normally has four pages, but on gala occasions it grows into a six pager. There are all sorts of sections and departments of news and literary efforts, and its appear- ance twice a month is always greeted joyfully by all the students. The subscription price is only fifteen cents Per semester, and we don't know of any better investment an Edisonite can make than to subscribe to his school paper. The Wizard staff is always on the job and has proved to be very capable. Blanche Freeland is the editor-in-chief, and she has worked hard to make this year's Wizard the best we have ever had. If you wish to know whom to thank for the enjoyment you have had in reading the Wizard this year, just look at the picture at the bottom of this page. Hats oif to them! Page F-ifty-three Page Fi f ty- f our THE HALL SQUAD is now bringing to a close its iifth semester of service. This organiation has as its job the keeping of well ordered hallways. The workers are posted at set positions throughout the school plant to help direct traffic and keep everything running smoothly and in the best possible order. The sponsor of this squad is Mr. Davis, and in a school of more than two thousand students his is a real job. The workers are organized in rather a military fashion. This semester Helene Jacobs is commissioner, Pauline Mathews is director and Venita Cheichi is inspec- tor- There are one hundred and ten workers and eleven cap- tains. THE YARD SQUAD takes care of the grounds. If in throwing your papers away you happen to miss the can, they are the ones who remind you to pick them up and put them in the can. Mr. Dryden is the faculty sponsor. The aim of the yard squad is to make Edison's grounds the finest in the city. At their meetings, which they have every week, there are suggestions made as how to improve the grounds. Emelda Romero is the student leader. Junior members of the student body serve on this squad, and get training which makes them eligible to serve on' the Hall Squad when they are seniors. THE SAFETY COMMITTEE is a very important organization in our school. These students have many dlu- ties They take care of the seating and order in the assemb- lies and other meetings in the auditorium. They are stationed at various points on the grounds to keep the stu- dents from going off the school, grounds without a lunch pass at noon. One of the important jobs they have is to regulate traflic at the various street intersections close to school. In this part of their work they are a part of the city-wide organization for safety sponsored by the Auto- mobile Club of Southern California. Mr. Neenan is the faculty sponsor of this group and James Meikle is the stu- dent director. THE STAGE CREW is composed of eighteen boys who are willing to do hard work. They have to weigh about one hundred and fifteen pounds, for there are -many heavy scenes to shift and other hard physical labor to be done. The boys are required to have had a course in every shop activ- ity given-in the school. Also. they must have excellent recommendations as to citizenship and responsibility before they are taken onto this squad. Mr. Spicer is the capable teacher and sponsor of this group. Page Fifty-five Page Fifty-six ATTENDANCE OFFICE WORKERS are school- servers. Keeping an accurate record of the attendance in a large school involves an enormous amount of Work. The system used at Edison has been developed in such a Way that student helpers do a large portion of this work. Several students are programmed into the attendance of- fice each period of the day. Here they do a Wonderful ser- vice for the school and at the same time they obtain some very valuable training in general office Work. This is one of the regular service organizations of the school and stu- dent service merits are awarded for faithful service here. Mr. Donyes is in charge of these workers, and with Miss Thompson's assistance "makes the wheels go 'round." THE BOOKSTORE AND CAFETERIA WORKERS are very busy students in Edison. The bookstore sells every kind of supply that the boys and girls will need. Every article purchased from the bookstore is of the highest quality. Mr. Ambler is the faculty sponsor of the bookstore. There are seven students working there. The cafeteria has the best of food and at low prices. Mrs. Lee is the head of the cafeteria. There are four ladies, one man, and about forty-two students Working in the cafeteria. The students are always satisfied with whatever they buy at either one of these places. THE LIBRARY SERVICE MONITORS are real "stu- dent serversf' Our job is to keep the library in good order, check the books in and out at the desk, and keep the files straight. We mend the books and returnthem to their pro- per places on the shelves. We learn to help our fellow stu- dents. Miss Mathis, the school librarian, is our director. Ex- perience in the library teaches us how to use books, how to care for books, and will be of benefit to us in senior high school, and later in life. THE PROPERTY COMMITTEE is a unit of the school service program at Edison. This committee Was organized early in the life of the school, and many loyal students have given excellent service in this department. The faculty sponsor of this committee is Mr. Perry, and under his direction the eight students of the committee carry on the work assigned to them in a very eliicient man- ner. This department is in charge of the "lost and found" offlce. of the bicycle racks, and accounts for all school prop- erty that comes under its jurisdiction. Robert Anear is the student director of this organization, and has proved him- self worthy of this important position. Page Fifty-seven Page Fifty eight THE EDISON SENIOR ORCHESTRA greets you. This 50-piece senior orchestra is now a thing of beauty as well as of harmony. New outfits of white suits, with blue and gold capes and caps and tams make the organization look like a high powered one indeed. These new uniforms made their appearance about spring vacation time. Mr. Boucher has built up a repertoire of concert and operatic numbers which have been presented in many assemblies and evening pro- grams. Much finer ensemble work, better tone quality and more balanced instrumentation are noticed in their playing this year. New instruments are continually being added. THE EDISON SENIOR BAN D, with their white suits, blue and gold capes, white felt caps and everything, looks like a real, sure enough band. And it certainly sounds like a real band too. The repertoire of the band includes all the standard marches, besides overtures and operatic selec- tions. The student body has enjoyed the band in many assemblies and also at the carnival and the festival. A no- ticeable improvement in tone quality, a better blend of in- struments, and a finer spirit of cooperation are evident in the band this year. Mr. Bouched expects a bigger and bet- ter band next year. Boys, here is your chance. THE SENIOR GIRLS' GLEE CLUB is a new organ- ization. This year the music department determined that there should be glee clubs for older boys and girls as well as for seventh graders. It is essential that we have these older students if we are to successfully produce an oper- etta each year. There are now thirty-two members in the senior girls' glee club. We have a very fine accompan- ist in Ruth Landow. We are working hard, under Miss Elliott's direction, to make Edison a school really noted for its music just as Mr. Goulet has so often said he wanted us to be. I THE SENIOR BOYS' GLEE CLUB, under Mrs. An- derson's direction, has had a busy and profitable year. The club has met daily during period six in Bungalow two The major activity of the year was the important part this club of older boys played in the splendid production of Rumpelstiltkin, the first ambitious operetta to be put on at Edison. The other principal appearance of the year for this club was on March 28, when they presented in a regu- lar assembly "Cynthia's Strategy," a very funny burlesque.

L w l il l N w - 5 Lg w R w A w l l l P THE JUNIOR ORCHESTRA, like the senior, has shown marked improvement this year. In as much as everyone is required to take at least one semester in the junior orchestra before entering the senior there are some musicians in the junior orchestra who are better than those in the senior organization. It is often very hard to tell which one is playing, because they are both so fine. The junior orchestra has contributed many numbers to assem- bly programs and evening entertainments this year. This junior group receives all the new talent that comes to the school as B7 entrants, and uses it to good advantage. If our music Work continues to grow and improve in the future as it has in the past, under the able direction of Mr. Bou- cher, we shall certainly achieve that goal: "To make Edison a musical school." THE JUNIOR BAND is really a beginning instru- ment class. About thirty boys and girls are learning in- struments and will be in the Senior Band or one of the orchestras next semester. Several instruments are fur- nished by the school. Recently fn oboe and bassoon were added to the list. Mr. Boucher points out that most of the Senior Band and Orchester have only been playing instru- ments two years or less THE JUNIOR GIRLS' GLEE CLUB consists of forty members, all interested in their Work and striving for good tone quality. Their fine singing has been enjoyed by many this year in several assemblies and evening programs. We can always be sure of their immediate and cheerful cooper- ation when planning any program. Miss Dye, who is dearly loved by all the girls, is our sponsor. The girls have rather a unique way of grading. Superintendents for each row recommend the grades in co-operation and effort for those in that rom. THE JUNIOR BOYS' GLEE CLUB is the organiza- tion which We formerly called the Boys' Choir. It now boasts a membership of forty-one. At present the member- ship is limited to B7 and A7 boys. All must have unchanged voices, and must be recommended by having a g1'ade of A or B in cooperation and effort. Ralph Knapper has been president both terms this year, and Mrs. Anderson is their director and sponsor. These boys sing three part songs as Well as many unison classics. They have appeared on as- sembly programs at various times and Were a leading fea- ture of the Fathers' Night program of the P. T. A. in March. Page Sixty-one V ' 'W Page Sixty-two THE PROMETHEAN SOCIETY is found by the students to be one of the hardest to become a member of, for in order to do so a student must have an "A" in six of the eight grades that are received on his report card. Nevertheless we ha 'e one hundred and thirty five members. The president of this society is Blanche Freeland, the vice- president is Gertrude Burkett, the secretary is Marjorie Burke and Mrs. Eckman is the faculty sponsor. The Pro- methean Society has had two parties this semester. One was at the Slauson Playground and the other in our cafeteria. We have lots of fun even if we are the "high brows"' of the school. THE PENTALPHEAN SOCIETY is another of the Edison honor societies. When this society was organized only thirty students were able to qualify for membership, and this year we have about one hundred and fifty mem- bers. To become a Pentalphean a student must excel in each of five fieldsg in scholarship, in school service, in physical efficiency, in character and courtesy, and in home service., The sponsor of this group is Miss. Conover. We are all proud of one student who has been a member of this so- ciety since its organization. Her name is Bernice Graham. At present there are almost twice as many girls who are Pentalpheans as there are boys, but the boys are gaining slowly and expect to catch up. THE HONOR ROLL is one of Edison's fine societies. Its membership consists of all students who receive no grade lower than "B" in a semester's averages. This society has grown many percent in size. Mrs Huxtable is the sponsor of this splendid group. Members of the Honor Roll have joined with the Prometheans and Pentalpheans in their parties and other good times. The growth of numbers in these three honor societies is a splendid evidence of the increasing interest of students in doing better Work and earning better grades.

There were two afternoon and one evening performances. Rumpelstiltskin, the opcretta, was really the story of Rumpelstiltskin corn- bined With that of The Queen's Daughter. This was our first attempt at operetta Work and Was very much appreciated by everyone who saw it. It showed good acting and very nice vocal Work. The beautiful stage setting and gorgeous costuming added materially to the suc- cess of the operetta. 'I here was a double cast, some performing in the after- noon and some in the evening. The main characters of the cast were the Dwarf,-Gerald Husted and Jimmie West,- the King,-Ishmail Williams and Orlyn Kimmel,- Sophia,-Genevieve Sharp and Sylvia Kositsky,-Jan, the miller,-Tom Marr and Ernest Cottrell,-Janette, his Wife,-Eva Mae Waldrup and Betty Courter. Almost one- hundred and fifty students participated and it is hoped that we will be able to present an operetta every year. The directing of the operetta Was done by the four I'!'1C'T11l361'S of the music faculty of Edison 5-Miss Dye, Miss Elliott, Mrs. Anderson and Mr. Boucher. We Wish to con- gratulate them on the great success of this, our first, operetta. Page Sixty-seven ARMISTICE PROGRAM Armistice Day is observed nowhere in all the land with more reverence than is shown each year by the Edison Faculty and Student Body. It is a tradition of this school that this day be set aside as "Edison Men's Day." Each year the men of the faculty bring to us a presentation of some of the real life situations of the world's most recent and most terrific struggle. On November thirtieth, nineteen hundred twenty-nine, the setting was a railway station somewhere in France. As the scene opened, guards were seen pacing slowly back and forth across the graveled station yard in the grey mist of the early morning. All was quiet but the crunching of the granite beneath the feet of the guards as they paced back and forth keeping vigil over the soldiers who the audience were beginning to realize were sleeping inside the funny little railroad cars that were standing on the side track at the platform of the station. The silence was soon broken by the roar of an aero- plane motor, and the guards sang o-ut the warning that the enemy were threatening a raid from the air. There was a flash, an explosion, and the raid was on. Charge after charge, and flash after flash for some two or three minutes and then the roar of the planes began to fade away into the distance and the enemy was gone. The next scene depicted the humor and happiness which the soldiers resorted to in order to forget the ter- rors and dispel the gloom. A negro cook, one Sambo Jones from Mobile, was brought before a faked court and given a trial for stealing a hamg convicted, sentenced, and then allowed to escape. Page Sixty-eight THE KING'S ENGLISH The King's English was the Winter '30 graduation play, given on January 17, 1930. It was supposed to be on the South Sea Islands. Ripley O'Rannigan, king of the West- ern Shores of Karra Wanga, Wanted his daughter, Loola, to marry someone who spoke correct English. Several men came in, but finally one man, whom Loola herself had chosen, was picked out by Ripley O'Rannigan to be the one to marry Loola. The setting was very beautiful and the play was given to three enthusiastic audiences. Miss Packard, the director, and all the cast are to be complimented on the success of the play.

Mr. Spicer too is receiving congratulations for the realism of the Shoe Store setting of Acts I and III, and the festive interior set of Act II. The first performance was given on Wednesday, May 21, 1930, to the juniors. The seniors saw it on the following after noon, and Friday May 23 was the date of the evening per- formance. The house was comfortably full at all thiee per- formances and the play was a fiiancial as well as dramatic success. Andy Whitaker, played by Lloyd Smith, Jerry, the ste- nographer, in the person of May Burgeg and Mary Mays, as the very desirable June Allen, are perhaps the three main reasons for the unusual success of this year's class play. However, Duard Filiatreau, as the irate Uncle Ira, was voted by many the real hit of the show. Others who Worked long and hard and who played their parts very Well indeed, are: Josephine Comstock, Nathan Rubin, Adron Harris, Dorothy Dixon, Mike Dobrinen, Charles Barlish, Arthur Morales, Jennie Peratis, Alvin Harris and Raymond Sinoff. This is the first year that the spring semester class play has been given early enough to be reported in the Annual. Future classes take note and do likewise! Page Seventy MINOR DRAMATICS Not all of our entertainments are long, full length plays. During this year the student body has put on many short dramatic programs which have been enjoyed by all almost as much as the long three or four act plays. First comes the assembly plays and dramatic programs. Among these was the Hallowe'en program. It was directed by the Physical Education department and presented by thePhys- ical Education girls. The program consisted of ghost and cat dances with a Seance of the Spirits. , ,For the Thanksgiving program the English depart- ment gave a play. The B9-4 English class was chosen to present this fine one act play. The program was enjoyed very much. Next came the annual science program. This was in form of a play, the first scene taking place in a class room. Scientific experiments were shown and then the class was taken to a hospital to see a "serious operation" perform- ed. The "operation" was a humorous silhouette which kept the auditorium roaring with laughter. The play, "Little Brother Sherlock" was put on by the Players' Club and directed by Mr. Orr and Mr. P-erry. It was voted a great success by the students. The play concern- ed a young lady, and her boy friend, and her younger brother. The different departments take turns giving assembly programs. The Mathematics department gave a story in play form called "The Story of Our Numbers", beginning with the Chinese, touching on the Babylonian, Egyptian, Greek, Hebrew, Roman, Hindu and lastly the Arabian type of numbers. The story was made very interesting by pant- omines behind a screen. Besides entertainment the program taught everyone something not known before. "Cynthia's Strategy", a roaring burlesque, was presented by the boys in the glee club. The play was the story of a girl's plan to get her parents to accept her boy friend. The girls' glee club presented a Spanish skit at a late assembly. Some Spanish songs were sung and two girls gave a Spanish dance. "Easy Terms" a play presented by Leon Naideth, Blanc-he Allaire, and Gorden Hast of the Players' Club, and directed by Mr. Perry and Mr. Orr, was given in an EISSGITIDIY during the spring semester. The play set forth the curse of buying by the instalment plan and the struggles of a young married couple against this evil. Page Seventy-one CARNIVAL DAY On April 25, 1930, Edison held its annual Carnival Day. The Carnival this year was truly American for the costumes were those of the American Indians. Mr. Goulet, or "Heap Big Chief Swat 'em Hard," joined the students by masquerading as an Indian and many teachers followed his example. A variety of Indian costumes were Worn by the students in the morning classes. At 12:00 o'clock a bell rang announcing that the Carni- val had begun. Out on the yard you could see many excited students running from ice cream to candy booth, hot dog stand to lemonade booth, and so on. After about an hour on the yard, buying and eating, we went to the tepees of the Indians to see the students display their costumes and watch the stunts. The first prize was given to James Ven- nink, the best dressed warriorg the second prize to Isabel Menes, the best dressed squawg and the third prize to Tom Pettibone, Elizabeth Drown, and Anna Reibstein, the most comical Indians. After the winners were presented with their prizes, which were tickets good for either Carnival or show, we stayed out on the yard or went to the Auditorium, where Mr. Fleischer's jazz band played some of the latest songs. Pearl Beach. Gertrude Burkett, Allyne Neely, Nathan Rubin, Leo Naideth, and many others contributed a part to the program. In the evening the same program was given with the addition of a few other acts from outsiders. The Parent Teacher Association had charge of the Car- nival this year as usual. It was one of the best Edison has ever had, and it was also a financial success. Page Seventy-two On Wednesday afternoons at ten minutes after two, dear old Edison Junior High knows that something very interesting is about to happen. Students with tennis rackets, ukes, sewing baskets, books, bows and arrows, and various other pleasure accessories, go streaming into their club rooms for forty minutes of fun and enjoyment. Each stu- dent chooses, early in the school year, from among the fifty or sixty clubs offer-ed the one he wishes to be afliliated with for the year. It may be a purely recreational club, or it may be a club in which he will improve his skill in a chosen field. Edison clubs cover a wide range of interests, and no student has trouble to find one he likes. On the contrary, the problem each student faces is that of making up his mind which of the many that he wants is the one he wants most. In the athletic clubs teams are chosen and games are chal- lenged. In the girls' atheltic clubs girls are trained to be- come referees of the regular games. Both boys and girls are able in these clubs to prepare for the big track meet and field day events which are looked forward to all year. Hand- craft clubs are always popular. Lamp-shades, flowers, em- broidery, party favors, hooked rugs, hats, dresses and even bows and arrows are all products of hand-craft clubs. A number of entertainers' clubs gather together students with special abilities and training in singing, dancing, reciting, et cetera. Dramatics clubs are busy all the time preparing plays and skits to be presented at various times. Many am- bitious student join subject clubs, such as French, mathe- matics, typing and study clubs, in order to get special help or to improve their grades. Our sponsors have done everything possible to make our club periods a huge success. With this splendid coopera- tion between students and sponsors, who can wonder at the excitement and joy which is evident every Wednesday as two o'clock draws near. Page Seventy-tlwee FACULTY PARTIES "A little nonsense now and then is relished by the best of men" and women, too. Believing the old saying that "all work and no play makes John a dull boy" the Edison fac- ulty women on Friday evening, May 2, decided that the time had come for them to play. Accordingly at 6 :30 P. M. they met at the Women's Athletic Club where they enjoyed a delicious four-course dinner. The dinner was served at long tables which Were attractively decorated with beautiful brass candelabra and gay baskets of bright spring flowers. The Athletic Club was a particularly happy choice, for the scene of the festivities because of the very large and attrac- tive swimming pool which many took advantage of before dinner. In the evening a very interesting swimming con- test was held. The faculty women attended this match and witnessed many unique swimming events. After this the evening was spent playing bridge. Several attractive prizes were awarded. The Edison faculty women voted the evening a most successful and diverting one, and expressed the desire that in charge of this delightful affair was composed of Dr. Murphy, Mrs. Anderson, Miss Gray, Miss Reilly, Miss Anshutz, and Miss Johnson. it be repeated in the not too distant future. The committee The biggest faculty party of the year, in point of num- bers and noise at least, was the celebration of Hallowe'en which took place in a private dining room at Taix French Restaurant on Commercial Street last October. More than a hundred faculty members and their friends met in the gaily decorated banquet room, and for some three or four hours proceeded to make thenight hideous with all the noise making devices at hand, and they were many. In addition to a typically French meal, there were a number of very clever stunts in keeping with the spirit of the occasion. Miss Ross crystal-gazed to the embarrass- ment of many, and three masked witches stirred their cal- dron to the tune of swishing straw brooms. The final event of the evening was a mock court before which various fac- ulty culprits were brought. Judge Warren and Clerk Davis were fearful and awe-ful to behold, While Attorney Ducey and Roche prosecuted and defended with avengance. Be- fore the same court, all new faculty members were hailed and after due questioning and instructing, were declared members in good standing of the ancient and honorable or- der of the Edison Faculty Association. Page Seventy-fam' FATHERS' AND SONS' NIGHT The annual party for the boys of Edison and their Dads was held this year on the evening of Friday, May 16. Report has it that this one was the best yet. The regular program for these affairs is an outdoor game late in the afternoon, then dinner, followed by games and stunts in the audito- rium. The afternoon game of baseball, called at 5 p. m., was an exciting one and ended With a score of 15 to 12 in favor of the sons. After the game everybody Went to the cafeteria for a good feed, to the tune of some songs by the Boys' Glee Club, accompanied by Mr. Donyes. After dinner We all hustled to the aud Where we enjoyed a good program of stunts and music. After the program We tried our skill in five games, three of which were Won by the Dads. The Dads got a notch on the club for their luck C?J in Winning the games, but Frank Weber was able to hack out a notch for the sons, be- cause they Won the baseball game. We all voted it a dandy good party and appreciated Mr. Shoemaker's efforts to make it so. THE GOLDEN CIRCLE JINX As the Annual goes to press, plans are under Way for the Golden Circle Jinx, the girls' party of the year. The party this year, as before, will be a costume affair exclu- slvely for the girls and any of their mothers who care to attend. It will be held in the afternoon in the auditorium, and a good program of stunts and games is assured. The Council of the Golden Circle and the Faculty sponsors will be in charge of the program, assisted by Miss Packard and Miss Coultas. We hope to make this party such a good one, that every girl in Edison Will feel that she must not allow herself to miss it. f5 -' ff5..... ,- .

In the ele- mentary school a certain number of pupils are assigned to a certain teacher and stay with her all day. In junior high school, by virtue of its organization, there is no place where the pupils stay more than one period. To bridge over the step between the elementary school and junior high school, or in other words to help the pupil feel at home in his new surroundings, he is assigned to a certain teacher in a cer- tain homeroom. This homeroom group stays with that teacher for the entire three years of junior high school and she looks after the interests of this group in every particular. 3' ' The homeroom serves many purposes. Here it is that the administration policy of the school is presented to the pupils. The numerous drives, contests and campaigns .of one sort or another are carried on through the homerooms, In fact, the homeroom is the clearing-house where school business is carried on every day. The homeroom activities are many and varied. There are business meetings, programs, game days, study hours, and once in a while a party. In Edison the homeroom meets four times a week for a period ef twenty-five min- utes. There is much rivalry and school spirit among the homerooms, and on the closing days of a contest the enthu- siasm runs high. The junior high school boy or girl enjoys the social contact that he has with his fellow homeroom members, and in the course of the three years junior high school course many lasting friendships are formed. And most all of the memories of a student's junior high school days Will he tied up with his homeroom. . Page Seventy-seven 7 I' ink i nah . I-nv -L. PM i .IA 1 I ' Page Seventy-e-iglzt Homeroom 100A feels honored to head the list of home- rooms in the 1930 Annual, and hopes that its record for the year will justify such a prominent position. So far We think We have done pretty Well. Last fall We came dangerously near winning the P. T. A. prize, and While we received no material reward, we made up for it in glory. We were the first A8 homeroom to be 100 per cent for the Annual. We are represented on the Wizard staff by three members: David Van Evera, Literary Editor, Gwendolyn Perry, News Editor and Ona Hourston, Homeroom Editor. Dorothy Remy is the A8 Council Member of the Golden Circle, there- by adding another leaf to our laurel wreath of fame. Our most recent Homeroom activity Was joining the Junior Red Cross, in which organization We hope to have lots of fun as well as a feeling of having done our bit to help those less fortunate than ourselves. Miss Conover is our teacher. Homeroom 100B makes its public appearance With the 1930 Annual. We have been in Edison only since September, but there is no activity in school that has not become ac- quainted With us long ere this. We are represented already in scholastic, musical, and athletic organizations. As a result of our thrifty habits, We are among the ten highest Edison homeroom savers. For A7's, We think we have a record to be proud of. Miss Egan is our teacher. Homeroom 101B, grade B8, is composed of 20 girls and 22 boys. In scholarship we find ourselves represented in the Pentalphean, Promethean and Honor societies. During one semester of the year We were 100 per cent for the Wizard and We are nearing the same for the Annual. The girls have shown good records in Basketball and the boys in Baseball. We are proud of our record in Thrift, having reached fifth place in school. Each Week during the year We have been trying to understand and apply Parliamentary rules. Our sponsor is Mr. Francis. Homeroom 10213, composed of peppy B7's, numbers fourteen girls and nineteen boys. We are very fond of Edison and are trying hard to be Well represented in the honor societies at the close of our Hrst semester here. Our boys have been very successful in the inter-homeroom vol- ley ball games and hope to do as Well in baseball. At the opening of the semester each student brought a good book so we now have a fine library of thirty-one books which may be checked out for a Week at a time. We are using the fines for overdue books to increase our picture fund. Our sponsor is Mrs. Morey. Page Seventy-nine Page Eighty Homreoom 103A has been very much on the job again this year. Collectively, we have brought honor to our homeroom several times. We subscribed 100 per cent to the Wizard on the first day of the semester in September and again on the first day of the present semester.. We won the biggest prize of the year when we finished the P. T. A. Drive for members with 200 per cent. The 37.50 prize helped to add to our famous collection of good pic- tures. We were not only the first B9 homeroom, but also the first homeroom in the entire school to be 100 per cent School Savings Accounts, and therefore have the coveted Thrift Honor Room banner to decorate our wall. Indi- vidually we have brought honor to our homeroom too. The rosters of the three honor societies have names of 103A students twenty times. Our teacher is MisS.H.JRogers. Homeroom 106A is better than ever. We are showing more interest in school activities than ever before. This is shown by an increase in thrift members, higher scholar- ship and better school spirit generally. We have homeroom rules by which we govern ourselves. Violation of these rules is followed by a jury trial before a judge and black marks are given as penalties. We allow five points against a person to equal one black mark. So far our Judge and jury have had little work to do. We hope our Homeroom stays this way all the time. Our Homeroom teacher is Mr. R. A. Fleischer. " Homeroom 106B, sponsored by Mr. Pace, is made up of thirty-six members and has representatives on the Honor Roll, Promethean and Pentalphean societies. We also have a high percentage of School Savers, Annual and Wizard subscribers. We enjoy our Homeroom activities devoted to games, stories, moving pictures and study peri- ods. These activities are conducted by committees ap- pointed at various times by Homeroom ofiicers. The sev- eral Homeroom parties we have had have proved to be a big success. Homeroom 107B, sponsored by Mr. Warren, is nearing the close of its iirst year at Edison. A brief summary of this homeroom's accomplishments might include the following: 100 per cent Wizard subscriptions both semesters, 75 per cent Annual subscription to dateg among the first in Christ- mas donations to the poorg 50 per cent in school savings ac- countsg a very creditable showing in inter-room athletics, parties, entertainments, and feasts galoreg representatives in Pentalphean, Promethean, and Honor societies.

' JT "i SFT? 25:2 5' -lv Page Eighty-two Homeroom 108B, a B7 class, has started out with a fine Edison spirit. Mr. Livengood is our sponsor. We purchased a fine bust of Charles Lindberg for the room with the money received for Winning the February book store pro- fit sharing check. The class was quite willing to make up the difference between the cost of the bust and the amount of the check. The boys volleyball and baseball teams did very well in the playground league. They won a large percentage of games played because of the fine spirit in the class. The girls bought more Annuals than the boys, so the boys had to give a party as a penalty for losing the contest, Homeroom 109A is a B9 group. During the Wizard drive, the boys had a contest with the girls to see which could get the most subscriptions. The boys Won, and the girls gave the boys a fine Easter party as their treat. The homeroom lacked only one subscription of being 100 per cent subscribers at that time. Now they are having a con- test for Annual subscriptions, with the winners to be de- cided on a percentage basis, since the boys outnumber the girls. Last semester, we had six members of Pentalphean Society. three members of Honor Society and one Prome- thean. Miss Dye is our sponsor. Homeroom 109B may not be the largest homeroom in Edison Junior High, but there is certainly no other that has caught the real spirit of Edison in one semester as this one. These boys and girls are real Americans. They have proved beyond a doubt, that they appreciate the efforts that are being made by all concerned in giving them the very best Possible advantages to acquire an education. Some people are born rich, others with good looks, while others are just lucky. Then there are those who do not have enough of either of the three qualifications named to get them through life, so it is for them to keep plodding away, content to take what is meted out to them and make something Worth While out of it. Mr. Webb is our teacher. Homeroom 111A is most prominent in the field of athletics. The boys won iirst place in indoor baseball. In the volley ball games they Won second place. The girls won the championship of Senior Division I in basket ball. They also came out victorious in the game between Division I and Division II. Philomene Williams was their captain. We have a checker club and a dramatic club Within the homeroon as well as a general game club. Mrs. Hayes is our teacher. 'Page Eighty-three is bl Page Eighty-fozw Homeroom 111B sponsored by Mr. C. I-I.lHanson, con- sists of 35 B7 's who entered Edison last February. We are endeavoring to fit ourselves quickly into the life of the school by studying industriously and cooperating heartily with our teachers. We have a large number of school savers, many subscribers to Wizard and thirty have bought the new 1930 Annuals. Next year we intend to be 100 per cent homeroom in everything. Homeroom 127A, due to Miss Armstrong, our home- room teacher, has had lots of fun in spite of the fact that We have never won anything. When we are good she passes out cookies she has made or something nice to eat. We have in our homeroom three people who are graduating in June. Also there are two who will graduate by going to summer school. We have in our homeroom several notables, one of whom is Max Prupas. You all know him as a musican. Richard Herzog, known as the second Babe Ruth, is also in our home room. We are very proud of them. Homeroom 127B is composed of thirty-five members of most enthusiastic A7 boys and girls. We are venturing forth under Miss Light's guidance to attain a high standard and keep it during our stay here. We have devoted a great deal of our time to scholarship and as a result, over half of our members are represented in Pentalphean or the honor roll. We are also working hard for merits. Some of our members have charge of the Lost and Found Depart- ment, while others have the honor of serving the hall and oiiice committes. Our Annual sales went over big and We were happy to reach the 10021 mark. We firmly believe in cooperating with the teachers and students and are endeav- oring to develop a superior type of school spirit. Edison Junior High may expect bigger and better things from us Homeroom 129A has had a happy year and succeeded fairly well for We now have several members in the Pental- phean Society. We have had current events on Monday, games, reading or study on the other days and business meeting on Thursday. We have enjoyed several nice parties, the best one our Easter luncheon in Bungalow two. Thirty- four of us were seated at three' long tables, very festive with yellow flowers, place cards and cunning baskets of Etster eggs for favors. The girls planned it all and made the cards and baskets besides preparing a fine luncheon. Not one of us has been sent to the office for discipline since we came to Edison. This is our best record. Mrs. Eklund is our teacher. Page Eighfy-five Page Eighty-sim Homeroom 129B is proud to say that each member is trying his very best to get along with his teachers and learn to be a success in life. Individual conferences are held with the sponsor, Miss Packard. Many troubles and difiiculties have been solved in this way. The members of the class find that it is a real achievement to be able to get along with others. To accomplish this most important element of good citizenship requires self control and Work. It does not hurt anybody to try hard. 129B aims to put forth its finest effort. Homeroom 13113, B8 Section A, sponsored by Mr. Davis, has carved a few more notches in its Coos Stick this 1929-30 term. The room was first to subscribe 100 Per cent for the Wizard both semesters. The book store check was won for December. An exhibit of Junior Red Cross pictures was conducted. Two portfolios were prepared to send to schools in Foreign countries in return for the fine folder re- ceived from the Intermediate School in Bagli De Monte Catini, Italy. Two other homerooms have been ind-uced to join the Junior Red Cross through the speeches made by members of this room. Exchange programs have been held with Homeroom 215B. Homeroom 200B numbers thirty-four-seventeen boys and seventeen girls. We are working on a schedule- this semester. We only have one day to study on class work. Monday, Current Events and Topics:Tuesday, study: Wed- nesday, we do not meet: Thursday, Thrift and jokes: Fri- day, a member of the class tells a story. We are considered 100 per cent by our teacher, Mrs. Pegues and will be until we prove otherwise. We are not all school savers nor have we 100 per cent in anything only we feel that we are 100 per cent boys and girls even though we don't get a 100 per cent in all school activities. Homeroom 202A, known as The Good Ship 202A, and its hearty crew have weathered some heavy storms nicely and expect now to find calmer waters and a pleasant voy- age ahead. Of course they have had several attacks by the blood thirsty pirates, English and Math and History, but they feel they have now gained the upper hand. Some have deserted and others have come on deck to replace them, but most of the crew have proved to be good sailors and have stuck by the ship. These sailors are quite ver- satile and have been active in musical, athletic and service organizations. Cartoons drawn by Gabriel Cherry have provided cheer and encouragement throughout the voyage. Miss Ross is the Skipper of 202A. Page Eighty-seifen Page Eighty-eight Homeroom 205B has had a very successful year at Edison. We have been hosts to a good many students from other homerooms who came to visit us for iive Weeks. Most of these students were glad to have been with us as We treated them just as if they were one of us. We are well represented on the athletic fields both boys and girls and hope to have the junior handball championship Within our grasp by the end of the year. We aren't Scotch, but to look at our savings accounts, you would surely think We Were. Mr. Martin, our homeroom sponsor, says that we will all be prosperous in our old age if We keep it up. Homeroom 206A is a. peppy group of A8's who have Miss Anshutz for our teacher. This year We have been having one day a week for study, one for entertainment, one for reading and one for games. Several of our group belong to the various honor societies. We have been study- ing vocations and are planning our future careers. Some day we hope to make names for ourselves and for Edison. Homeroom 207B has made a wonderful flight this year and We hope to land on the upper classmen's field with flying colors next year. Among our passengers are Miss Young, our pilot, eleven Pentalpheans, four of whom have their first bar, four honor roll members and one Prome- thean. At the 100 per cent school savings field we were re- ceived by Mr. Gray. Oh boy! what a party he gave! Our space is gone but We must mention our ten dollar P. T. A. prizes which we are still using, thoroughly enjoying. CHow?J Homeroom 208A is a very industrious class during Homeroom time. Some of the boys and girls are making maps, lampshades, diary books, and book-ends. We have some very intelligent students in our Homeroom. We have quite a few boys and girls on the Honor Roll, Promethan and Pentalphean Societies. There are six boys and girls taking B9 Algebra, of which two are taking all B9 subjects. But they liked the Homeroom so well that they decided to stay in 208A instead of going on to a B9 Homeroom. Mrs. Phillips is our Homeroom sponsor. Page Eighty-nine an-v YH- a.a.,1. -W 3 .35 X Q I :Lu , ,Li Page Ninety Homeroom 209A, a 100 per cent All Talking Human- phone classic in 35 parts, has been showing at the Edison Playhouse for nearly eighty weeks. While this is a record to be proud of, its director fand severest critich, Mr. Perry, recently voiced the opinion that they would no doubt be requested to stay for a full one hundred and twenty weeks -and even then be held over by popular demand. Particu- lar features of this production are claimed to be C15 the starting of a boy's cooking class fyou taste as Well as seel, C29 the large representation in student activities, 131 the comparing of 209A's intelligence to that of rats by Working mazes fthe results will not be made publicj, and C45 its motto of "Every Day a Red Letter Day-Except Report Card Day." Homeroom 210A sponsored by Mrs. Mowery is compos- ed of A8 students who have become loyal Edisonites and good friends. Although we have not reached our expecta- tions this year, we are proud to be represented in the Prom- ethean and Pentalphean Societes and on the honor roll. Four of us participated in the Operetta. We also have members in the orchestra, band and glee clubs and on the yard squad. As the crowning event of the year, our Indian stud- ent, James Vennink, took first prize in the Carnival. Homeroom 211B is "different" When we say different, we mean diiferent. We have the unique distinction of being the only homeroom in Edison Junior High that hasn't any girls in it, with the exception of one other homeroom. Although we're only A7's, We are not so bad when it comes to athletics. John Schmidt is president. Mr. Pres,- ley, our homeroom teacher, came to us fromArizona in Feb- ruary. He formerly taught at Edison, but was away for a year and a half. He must have liked California better, for he came back to Edison again. Homeroom 212B, composed of B7 students, has be- come very enthusiastic over the privilege of becoming a part of the Edison student body. We hope that our nine members who made A in both cooperation and eiort, and the nineteen who made B or better the first ten Weeks, have demonstrated our desire to be real Edisonites. Y have discovered two clever dancers, Pearl Beach and Betty DeCowe. Bertha Davidson has amused us many times with her funny monologues. Esther Phillips has sung very nicely. The boys as Well as the girls have given entertain- ing recitations. Mrs. Hopkins is our sponsor. Page Ninety-one at-rf 'if 1 lhlhi Page Nmetw two Homeroom 215A, sponsored by Mr. Carpenter, held their class election in February,electing Joe Mauntz presi- dent, Lulu Latino vice-president, Margaret Green secretary, and Troy Callas homeroom reporter. Our ninth grade after school volley ball team won nine out of ten games. The Players were Joe Mautz, captain, William Schepeit, William Sindona, Troy Callas, and John Dalton. We are out for the ninth grade after school baseball and track cham- pionships, hoping to win the ninth grade school banner. Homeroom 215B enjoys the opportunities at Edison and tries to show our appreciation by loyalty and service. Twenty-five are Promethean, Pentalphean or Honor Roll students, some are members of all three. We have served on P. T. A. programs, at evening performances and assemblies. Reading, programs and parties afford us many good times. We had an oriental party when we wore east- ern costumes, told oriental stories and jokes and ate cur- ried rice with chop sticks. Our teacher, Mrs. Carpender, gave a party to those who received no black marks during the semester. Honor students wore ribbons of Edison blue and gold. Those receiving black marks were permitted to at- tend when each agreed to the punishment of wearing a black ribbon. We are members of the Junior Red Cross. Homeroom 220A, A8, Section 4, is quite proud of its record in School Service. as we have about twelve on yard and safety committees. Elenora Mathisen holds the record in Scholarship, being a member of the Promethean, Pen- talphean and Honor Societies. We have decided that We .ieed three days a week for study now. Mr. Lewis is trying in experiment giving us A8 Math and B9 Algebra both, and We have to study hard. Some of us scored so high on the Reading Comprehension test that we are taking B9 En- glish. On Friday we learn Spanish songs and games, have a program, or our teacher, Miss Hewitt, reads to us. Homeroom 225B, B7-3, although new to our school, is rapidly becoming a loyal and enthusiastic group of Edi- son workers. Our boys have been successful in inter-class athletic contests, and some of us hope to also make worthy scholarship records. Our girls are ambitious for honors in their classes, and many are willing workers in the Gol- den Circle. We are interested in a study of Thrift and means of saving, under the capable leadership-'of our class officers and thrift representatives Wehave a Weekly pro- gram of reading for enjoyment and of study of various topics which may aid in planning our school life. We are sponsored by Mrs. Browning- - Page Ninety-th-ree Page Ninety-fan? Homeroom 226A which consists of thirty-six mem- bers are a very active group of A8's section 1. In the fall of 1930 we all hope to enter the class of B9's. It is our de- sire, at the close of our eighth year, to leave records and examples which are Worthy of praise and commendation. We boast of having several in our group who have received Pentalphean and Promethean honors and We hope to con- tinue this good Work throughout our remaining year in Edison Junior High. We have as our class adviser now Miss Edith Long who is taking the place of Miss Barnes, our former homeroom teacher. Homeroom 226B started the year at Edison in true Edison fashion. Officers were elected at the second meeting and were inducted into office the third meeting. Since then all meetings have been conducted by the students through their elected oiiicers. Mr. Clifford, the sponsor, is at hand to assist ofiicers whenever they encounter parliamentary difliculties. The regular program of the week is as follows: Monday, reading, Tuesday, discussion, Thursday, speeches: Friday. singing. The students have set two main aims for their homeroom Work the first semester. These aims are cleanliness and cooperation. Homeroom 227B is certainly glad to have such a good picture in the Annual. As we are A'7s, this is our first An- n-ual and very important for that reason. We have pro- grams each Week and have been reading such an interest- ing book this spring in homeroom--"Tarzan of the Apes." We recomemnd it to any other homeroom who likes ex- citing stories. Mrs. Eckman is our teacher. Homeroom 228B, B8-2, has a varied program.. A com- mittee of three was appointed to have charge of the Week's schedule as follows: Monday, studyg Tuesday, current events and talksg Thursday, Mr. Trempe reads from "That Year at Lincoln High" by Golcombg Friday, games, puz- zles and program. When there is any extra time during the week, we read from various books. Once during the year we won the monthly book store check of 32.50 but have done nothing as yet with the money although We ex- pect to use it before the close of the year.

We are now preparing for our last semester at Edison and hope that all of our homeroom family will be able to "make the grade" When graduation day comes. Yes, we are B9's and during our last semester We hope to be able to set an example to the Juniors. By means of our greater experience, longer service and scholarly advancement We should be in a position to lead in behavior and cooperation in the class room as Well as in the yard and halls. Homeroom 231B is an A7 group of 15 girls and 18 boys. Besides the usual programs and parties for enter- tainment, we have been making a note book about bird life. Different chapters are on the various birds as road- makers, athletes, mimics, dancers, musicians, air police- men, divers, etc. We write a few notes about the interesting things Miss Elliott reads to us, then We draw and color the bird just written about. Our sponsor says We are get- ting much more "grown up" than we were as B'7's. We are glad for we hope to become the best Edisonites ever! Homeroom 232B is going to make the rest of Edison sit up and take notice before very long. We started our career at this school in February, but it didn't take us long to learn the right Way to get ahead. We started our home- room activity with a Warm contest for class oflicers. Each candidate had to make a campaign speech and some of them were as good as the speeches made by the A9 candidates for student body ofiicers. We have a large numberof boys in our room and so We are greatly interested in athletics, especially the volley ball and baseball tournaments. We also have some very good entertainers. There are uke and harmonica players, as Well as several girls Who can dance and sing. Mr. Espy is our teacher. Homeroom 315B is an A7 class- We have tried to take our part in all school activities. We are represented in the Promethean Society by two members and have six members on the Hfonor Roll. Our program schedule Was as follows: Monday, program, Tuesday, business, Wednes- day, varietyg Thursday, readingg Friday, confession of our errors. Miss Hymer has been our sponsor, until she left us to accent a principalship. Our presidents have been Bernice Schulhof and Kenneth Spangenberg. Page Ninety-seven u 1" 5:2 S '1 - Page Ninety-eight Homeroom 318A is composed entirely of girls. We have very pleasant times during this period. Besides discussing many topics that are of interest to girls, we have spelling matches, study periods and programs. Our programs are given on Friday. All of us are especially interested in our physical education work. Several of our members played on the famous basket-ball team, "Nell's Bell's". This team won the class and noon game championships. We endeavor to do our best to take part in all activities of our school. Miss Reilly is our teacher. Homeroom 318B, Section 8 of B7, has a desire to be good citizens, and -as proof, we submit that we have an A average in cooperation and effort and no red ink on our cards. Every boy in the room has his ten points in scholar- ship. We have homeroom programs and other activities. We are proud of Edison, and we want Edison to be proud of us. Our officers are Kate Mycroft, Presidentg Cecil Wilson, Vice-President, Edith Norris, Secretaryg Barney Price, Thrift Representative, and Grover P-erigue, Wizard. Mr. Lewis is our sponsor. Homeroom 319B is an A7 room for girls. This is our first appearance in the Annual. We hope to continue to ap- pear as a group until we make our final bow as A9 seniors. We have made a very creditable showing in the various acti- vities of the school such as in thrift, and in the Wizard and Annual drives. At the beginning of the term, we decided to carry on our homeroom work under a definite schedule. During the first of the period, we have our business meet- ing, followed by the special activity for that day. We have had a party and are planning another for the end of the term. Mrs. Paine is our sponsor. 321A is an A8, all boys homeroom. Our room was well represented in the athletic events of the past year. Watch us next year. At Christmas time, we had a party with Homeroom 318A, Miss Reilly's homeroom. Mr. Richardson, our sponsor, reads to us. The books We have read include "The Jinx Ship" and "The Great Quest," both from our own library. We recommend both books to other readers. Books we have read, which are not from our own library include "The Hidden Trail" and "Messenger 483' Page N inety-nine Page One Hundred Homeroom 325A is proud of its athletic record. Jack Roberts, our volleyball captain, led his braves--Navarro, Copfer, Miller, Watkins, and Shiloif to an Eighth Grade Playground League victory. Our baseball team, likewise, is going out after the pennant. Four of our girls-Lucille Flores, Claudia Stanfield, Opal Berring, and Doris Campbell of the "Shoot Em Thru" basketball squad were Period Champions. Futhermore, Doris won the highest Decathlon honors for Eighth Grade girls. One of our most interesting activities has been a checker tournament, though, at pres- ent, the winner has not been crowned with his laurel. Mrs. Wright is our teacher. Homeroom 325B has enjoyed its second year at Edison very much. We are proud of our few Honor Roll members and winners of the Pentalphean bar. Miss Marquardt has been reading "The White House Gang" to us, and we have enjoyed the interesting experiences of these boys in our Nation's Capital. On Thursdays, we are entertained by our own talent, and on Wednesdays we play games. Homeroom 326B is quite alive. There are thirty-four of us who are full of pep and enthusiasm. We enjoy contests a great deal, and that may explain to a certain extent Why we experienced the thrill of being the first one hundred per cent homeroom for the Annual. We shall never forget the day that the thirty-sixth person subscribed. But we antici- pate many such "big" days next year so just watch us. Miss Elma H. Rogers is our homeroom teacher. Homeroom 327A has broken another non-stop record. We have been at Edison during five semesters and we are quite positive that no other homeroom class has ever done more talking or made more noise unnecessarily. We really can't understand how our teacher tolerates us. Being ninth graders, we determined to make a good scholastic record, and having achieved this, "all these other things have been added unto us". Before another Edison Annual is pub- lished, we shall have passed into the third unknown of our educational flight, there to beat our former records. Mr. Thomson is our teacher. Page One H zmclred and One PageAVOne Hundred and Two I-lfomeroom 327B is completing its first year at Edison- Since the beginning of the second semester, we have felt more grown-up because we have been writing our grade as A7 instead of B7. This was the first milestone in our pro- gress through the school. We have now passed the second one and are looking forward to those we shall pass next year as eighth graders. As the proper use of time is a valu- able asset in furthering our school success, we have put forth a considerable effort toward acquiring good study habits and feel that we have made considerable progress. Mr. Dryden is our sponsor. Homeroom 328A had a very enjoyable year. It was not as successful as most of us Wanted it to be. However, we still have one more try for a successful year when We are ninth graders next year. Mr. Guercio, our teacher, and William Redwine, our president, planned the follow- ing Weeky program for us. On Mondays, we had stories read to us. This semester we had animal stories. We read story books or magazines on Tuesday. Thursday we stud- ied. The homeroom entertained with stories, singing, danc- ing, and music on Fridays. Although We have some school savers, P. T. A. members and Wizard subscribers, we are still far from one hundred per cent. Our representatives are working hard for a more successful year when we are ninth graders. We had a fine Annual campaign and came very near one hundred per cent. Watch out for 328A next year. This is homeroom 395313. Grade R7-1. speaking over station E. J. H. Tune in folks! You will hear the latest news from Edison. We are undertaking to sneak through the Annual. We find it great to be junior high students, espe- cially to be Edisonites. We were 100W Wizard the first ten minutes of life in our homeroom in Edison. We are al- most 100'Z1 for the Annual and in nearly all other acivi- ties, and duties such as returning cards, inviting parents to P.-T. A., and in securing memberships. Our success is due to cooperation with our homeroom teacher, Mr. Beeson. Homeroom Bungalow IIA, was the first all girls class at Edison. The membership ranges around 20. One of the activities has been the serving of several luncheons. Eight of the girls are in the A9 class and will graduate this year. Dorothy Smith as Thrift Representative and Mary Graham, as member of the Inner Circle of the Golden Circle, have served their room most creditably. Mrs. Alfa Wood Anderson is our sponsor. Page One Hzmclred and Three Homeroom Bungalow IIIB enjoys to the full the free- dom of a large building in the middle of the field. Mr. Boucher is the teacher in charge, and when he isn't raising the roof, the rest of us do. And what with tap dancers, blue singers, instrument solos, and Mr. Perry's vaudeville groups--Well, We enjoy life in varied forms. We seldom are serious excepting after grades come out. We try not to let F's spoil our lives. In some cases, We have succeeded in eliminating such red marks. It is noticeable that our girls are beautiful, and our boys are athletes. Our teacher is not so dumb as he looks. Page One H zmclred and Five I V Physical Education is one of the classes the boys of Edison look forward to. In this class two days a Week are devoted to the playing of sports in season, one day for Wholesome Living, where the boys learn good manners and hygienic habits, another for exercises and drill Work, and another for decatholon events Where the boys Work hard to gain points for their letters. During the lunch periods, there is another chance for the boys to earn points by play- ing on the noon teams. The homerooms have been urged to select a team and come out and play other homerooms after school. The boys who are ineligible to play at noon have a chance to make a playground letter by playing on their homeroom teams and getting points for Winning games or by staying an hour after school on the ground and helping Mr. Henderson, the sponsor, with playground Work. There are four big clubs at Edison for boys. They are the Tigers, Wildcats, Wolves and Pirates. Mr. Fulton is sponsor of the Tigers, Mr. Webb of the Wildcats, Mr. Finch of the Wolves and Mr. McMillian of the Pirates. The four clubs are picked in equal numbers from all the boys in school. Our men of the faculty as Well as our students are in- terested in athletics. The Edison Faculty teams got oif to a flying start in volley ball by taking second place. Central Junior High took first after a hard fought battle with Edi- son. Spring baseball had the Edison rooters cheering for the faculty team too. Mr- Finch zipping them over like no- body's businessg Mr. Espy choking a fly, Oh boy! that's the kind of baseball our school wants and gets.

This is probably due to the fact that the physical education pro- gram is so varied that there is something which interests every girl. Its aim is four-fold, namely, to develop every girl to her highest degree of normal physical efliciency, to correct physical defects, to encourage wholesome physical activities in leisure time, and to create and develop desir- able character traits. Each day has its different activity. One day we spend in learning dance steps, the purpose of which is to develop grace and coordination of bodily movements. One day we practice to perfect our skill in certain self-testing activities such as basketball goal, baseball pitch, baseball and basket- ball throw for distance, tennis serve, and many others. On one day we engage in formal activities 5 then we stand our straightest and try to develop good posture and graceful body lines. On wholesome living day we learn many health habits which help us to eat wisely, to keep physically whole- some and clean, to dress properly and to behave as young ladies should. Sports day is the day we like best, for then we are allowed to play games without supervision so long as we are "good sports" and play the game according to rule. One very important part of our physical education pro- gram is the noon game program. Every noon as many games are scheduled during each lunch period as there are Page One Hundred and Twenty-one diamonds or courts on which to play. At present there are 71 baseball teams ,38 of which play during senior lunch, and 33 during junior. The best times we ever have are our noon games, and especially when the "champ" teams are being decided- These games draw big crowds who are intensely anxious to see who will be the lucky team. During the basketball season this year the girls were chosen by size for the teams. There were two divisions of junior teams, the smaller girls being called Junior II's and the large ones, Junior I'sg and two divisions of senior teams, Senior II's and Senior I's. This organization was a great advantage to the girls during the noon games for they were enabled to play only with girls their own size. In baseball, size does not make so much difference, but the girls remained, for the most part, in the same teams they had for basketball. , This year we have greatly increased our percentage of students making ,monograms and fulfilling their Pental- phean requirement for Physical Efficiency. About 370 girls made a monogram, chevron, or star during the first semes- ter this year, and about 310 fulfilled their Pentalphean re- quirement of 110 points. Because so few B7's passed the Pentalphean requirement, the number of points was re- duced from 110 to 90 for this grade. . We have had quite a change of teachers this year. Mrs. Wilsey and Miss Connell are the only onesremaining from last yearg new ones are Mrs. Huxtable, Miss Windham, Miss McDowell, and Miss Packard. We also have had a new department added. Miss Windham has been placed in charge of our corrective department, which although just in its infancy, has done much for the girls who cannot take regular physical education. Each year the girls' physical education has charge of the Hallowe'en assembly program. This year we had printed programs of a mysterious nature which were given out in advance of the assembly in order to arouse curiosity. We certainly did keep them all guessing. The program is described in detail under the description of assembly programs. The girls of the physical education de- partment have taken part in many assemblies this year, es- pecially in dancing numbers. We are now Working over- time on our big Play Day program which will take place on .May 23rd, and on several dances for the A9 graduation ex- ercises. Page One Hundred and Twenty-two CORRECTIVE PHYSICAL EDUCATION This spring semester two corrective classes in physical education were started in order that the girls with outstand- ing physical or organic defects might receive special and more individual attention. This has not been wholly pos- sible for the lack of equipment and facilities have been a decided handicap. Next semester it is hoped that more space and equipment will be available and the groups small enough that each one may receive more individual atten- tion. Then it will be possible to take care of the transitory pupils more effectively, especially the girls Who no longer need to stay in the nutrition class and yet are not ready for regular physical education. In order that corrective may be interesting and as nearly like regular physical education as possible without losing sight of the aim of the class, many adaptions are made. Not only does each girl have Wholesome Living once a week, but she also has a day for games. Points are given as in regular physical education. Those girls who are tak- ing corrective for posture training only also have a day for self-testing events. The girls who are not allowed to do these events have a chance to earn points by sleeping in the Rest Tent- Thus the girls in corrective have practically every opportunity to earn points except participation in noon games. As soon as a girl succeeds in overcoming the defect she is trying to correct she is allowed to go into a regular physical education class and receives 25 points. It will be interesting to see how many girls will receive mono- granis at the end of the semester. Miss Windham, who is new to Edison this year, is the teacher in charge of cor- rective work.

This time it was the senior hit pin. On her team were Jennie Peratis, Lena Aug- imere, Ruth Spann, Priscilla Fully, Mary Mays, Bernice Scott, Genevieve Sharp and Betty LeLansky. Mrs. Wilsey was the team sponsor. THE KICKIN G MULES were mighty hard Workers. During the Hit Pin season competition ran high in the fourth period, 8th grade class. The teams Were evenly matched and for a long time no one team could win more games than the others. One team however, made up its mind to be not only class champion but junior league cham- pion as well. And that's just what happened. The Kicking Mule kicked through to Win. The girls on the Kicking Mule team who fought so hard for their honors and were such good sports are: Helen Gillam, Mazie Roberts, Lucile Pearce, Dora Elsnor, Teresa Donato lcaptainl, Evelyn Ambroise, Janet Landau and Julia Dobransky. Miss Windham was the sponsor. BIGGER AND BETTER WHOLLOPS the senior vol- ley ball champs, was captained by Blanche Wenner, who had on her team: Betty Leliansky, Lena Augimere, Ruth Spann, Priscilla Fully, Guinivere Torrance, Mary Mays and Bernice Scott.

Pic- tures of the girls making the highest scores during the first semester this year appear on the opposite page. The purpose of self-testing activities is to develop strength and skill in the performance of certain events. The events chosen each semester are, for the most part, those which afford practice in the particular sport then in season. During the first quarter, soccer pitch and soccer throw for distance were especially appropriateg during the second quarter, volley ball serve and return g during the third, basketball goal and basketball throw for distance, and during the fourth baseball pitch and baseball strike. In addition to these, tennis serve has been continued throughout the year. Five events are practiced during a semester. A per- fect score is 10 points for each event. The highest record made this year is 49 points, which, however, is a mighty fine showing. The awarding of monograms and the passing of the Pentalphean requirement are based upon the number of points earned by a girl during a semester. Girls may earn points in the following Ways: 1. By perfect attendance. 2. By dressing completely every day. 3- By having a good posture. 4. By taking showers. 5. By scoring in self-testing events. 6. By belonging to a winning noon or period team. 7. By earning a good grade in wholesome living. 8. By reporting every noon for scheduled games. 9. By acting as supply girl, secretary, team captain, or squad leader- 10. By taking part in special entertainments. 11. By gaining points in corrective and nutrition classes. 175 points are required for the first monogram. 350 " " " " " first chevron 525 " " " " " second chevron 700 " ' " " third chevron 875 " " " " " first star 1000 " ' " second star Page One Hzmdrcd cmd Twenty-nine Page One Hundred amd Thirty ANNUAL PLAY DAY The biggest event of the school year for the girls of Edison is the Play Day program which is presented by the girls' physical education department. Friday, May 16, was the date of this year's Play Day, and from 1 o'clock until 3, every person on the faculty and in the student body was on hand either to take part in or to watch the festivities. All the bleachers were full, the band played, the ice cream and candy vendors "did their stud," and no one could doubt that it was a red letter day. Even the sun did his best to be present. The band in excellent fashion started off the program by marching in uniform around the field while they played El Capitan March. The second number was a Summons by the Spirit of Athletics, done by three fine dancers, Dorothy Remy, Ruth Suman, and Betty Price. In answer to this sum- mons a large group of Edisonites came upon the field with canes and caps of blue and gold and stepped oif the Dance of the Dandies. The Pirates of the Pirate Dance dazzled the eyes of the onlookers when they revealed a great store of treasures in a mysterious chest. They were in striking Pirate costumles, and did their part very well. The Balloon Dance and the Dance of the Dolls were by the girls of Miss Packard's classes, both dances being done by large groups. Pearl Beach led the little girls in pink rompers who did the waltz clog. Kamarinskaia, a Russian dance, presented an unusually at- tractive event. The girls in this dance were trained by Miss McDowell, and their costumes were among the best of the day. Jack Be Nimble, another dance by Miss McDowell's girls, was done in a truly nimible fashion. The costumes in this event were very clown-like and cute. Happy Days Dance by Mrs. Huxtable's girls, and the Irish Lilt by Miss Wind- ham's girls won considerable applause. The Irish costumes were particularly pretty. Th!" biggest group event was the Dumbell Drill exe- cuted by the girls of Mrs. Wilsey's classes in truly excellent form. Their accuracy and absolute uniformity looked almost like a West Point drill to us. The Stunts, Human Hurdle, Indian Club in Circle, Cart- wheel, Zig Zag, Tire and Sack, and other stunts, races and games were under Miss Connell's direction. The girls in these events wore colored arm bands representing the classes to which they belonged, and the results were re- ported in track meet form. The A7's won!

II Our "big shot" is Mr. Goulet, I-Ie's the principal here all the day. But when school days are o'er, He shoots shafts by the score, Taking cups as an archer, they say. III A teacher of foods is Miss Light. She makes things for the palate's delight. But it's golf she enjoys, And her spare time employs Working up a good, strong appetite. IV Mr. Cunningham teaches you see, English classes from eight until three. But he spends his spare time, Hunting Words that Will rhyme. He Writes verse, either classic or free. V Mr. Davis puts in his school day, Teaching adding and taking away, Yet he Writes Without stint, And he bursts into print In a most intellectual Way. VI Mrs. Phillips has found a new place, For old silks, for old satin and lace. She's been stung by the bug, That resides in the rug. Though it's Art that she teaches With grace, Page One H umlred and Thirty-nizw VII Gur Miss Dodds teaches hist'ry all day, But she hurries right home, so they say, Where she has lots 'of fun, With books Weighing a ton, For she'll be a good lawyer some day. VIII Mr. Murr Works in our auto shop, As a teacher he stands at the top. But the thing he likes best, When from work he can rest, ls just being to Daughter the "Pop." IX Mr. Fleischer, in his science class, Stirs up messes in test tube or glass. But when teaching he quits, At the piano he sits And makes the most marvelous jazz. X Mr. Guercio, so they all say, Teaches grammar to students all day. But he's really the rage, On the amateur stage. Either hero or villain he'll play. -Virginia Conover Cresponsiblej Page One Hzmdred and Forty P ge One Hundred a d F ty AUIOGRAPHS Page One Hundred and Forty-three AUTOGRAPHS TOGRAPH X Paye One Hundred and Forty-five QI Y- fs: mm an -U.: AUIOGRAPHS X UIOGRAPHS 3 6 L P?
