4 tion, sometimes the perfecting of a certain section is involved.
NVhile it may mean the addition of a new department or feature, every
change is made with some definite need brought on by a defect or
deficiency. Therefore, the staff has worked zealously throughout the
year to give the students a year-book which will prove more interesting
and consequently more satisfactory than in years gone by. l1IPerhaps
solne explanation is necessary to point out the changes which have been
made this year. Beginning with the rotogravure section, the pictures
have been printed in the form of panels to enrich the appearance of the
opening section of our book. The next difference is in the senior panels,
where we have used a snap-shot of each graduate so that he will appear
as he really is in daily lit'e. We still include activities, although they have
been arranged a little differently. l1lAs we come to the group class pic-
tures, we also arrive at a much discussed point, the junior class picture.
After lengthy deliberation and consultation with the engraver, it was fin-
ally decided that in order to distinguish t'aces in such a large group, we
must have individual pictures. 'Here we have uniform head size and
grouping. The sophomore and freshman classes are shown as before in a
body. qln order to conserve space, which was needed by other depart-
ments, two club pictures have been placed on a page and the calendar has
been run in the margin. Write-ups accompanying the pictures have been
worked and reworked with a definite object in view, more readable mater-
ial. ljI'I'he new features, along with our theme, which is Chinese, are
"Have you seen ?" and "Don't you I'0lll0llllJCl'?,, In these pages are given
just a few of the characteristics of some of the students of the school.
111 While no change has been made in the snap pages, we have tried to give
you more for your money by packing them with only the essential parts
of the kodak picture. ljtln concluding the annual, we have used an idea
taken from COPA DE ORG of several years ago. This is the prophetic
edition of the FLASH. We hope that you will enjoy reading your year-
book and really treasure it as a priceless reminder of '32.

ORLD PEACE is a problem in which we are all vitally interested.
In this age when nations are seething with turbulence and strife,
our minds turn naturally to the prevention of war and the
preservation of peace. llAt some time each one of us may have
wondered, "In just what way does World Peace involve me?"
lJIOften the old maxim has been repeated, 'tCharity begins at home," so
why shouldn't World Peace have its birth at hom-e? This is the connect-
ing link. l1IThere are several eminent factors concerned with the main-
tenance of peace: law observance, respect for the privileges and liberties
of our fellow-men. and absolute faith in the people of the world. l1lThe
first principle is essentially important wherever it is found. In every
home there are certain rules and regulations which, if carefully observed,
will tend to insure domestic tranquilityg while on the other hand, a con-
stant disregard will inevitably bring about pandemonium. The same holds
true for the school where there is an appointed or elected governing body
to set down the law of the campus. Co-operation of the students in respect
of law and order invariably means a smooth running and tranquil organi-
zationg yet the misdemeanors of a few will break down the school morale
and cause that well known under-current of feeling which is prevalent in
nearly every school where there are insurgents. Thus law observance,
which is essential in founding World Peace, can be practiced at l1on1e.
lli'l'he next phase incorporated in the establishing of World Peace--respect
for the privileges and liberties of our fellow-men-must needs be rc-
ligiously practiced if we hope to accomplish our ends. l1IWe are ot'ten in-
clined to look out for ourselves in this world regardless of what effect it
may have on the people around us. In all our work and play we must
learn to co-operate and to respect our neighbor's liberties. At home each
member of the t'a1nily has certain recognized rights. at school the various
classes and clubs are given individual liberties, and by treaty or under-
standing each nation has gained rank and position which automatically
attains for it international privileges. ill After law observance and respect
of liberties comes faith in our fell-ow-men. Herein lies the predominant
factor or nucleus around which World Peace centers. Without faith noth-
ing could be accomplished. When we obey our parents, we have faith in
their judgment, when we attend school. we acknowledge our faith in
superior learning, when we place the chief executives over our nation,
we have faith in their ability to govern us wisely and well, and finally
when we make treaties, we trust the fidelity of those involved. i1IWorld
Peace is in form a sort of treaty between nations which incorporates law
observance, respect for the liberties of each nation, and faith among coun-
tries. As it is possible for these three factors to have their beginning at
home, we all should strive to do our part in attaining the world's present
ideal-World Peace-by making an effort to practice the three items
which will bring about this condition of international good-will.

ACING the serious problem ol' 1931-1932. school
people agree that the only justification of a state
supported system of secondary education, is the
fact that the success of democratic government
depends on an enlightened citizenry. illlniportant
as other phases ot' education may be, it is the first duty ot'
the school to promote good citizenship. llllt has been sug-
gested that the time has come to "shift the emphasis from
intellectual attainment, to social fitness." llIThe success ot'
such a program depends as much on the so-called extra-
curricular activities as upon the traditional classroom
work ol' the school. QICOPA DF, OBO brings us annually

I ,,, . X, NCE upon a time, lon years ago, there
lived a beautiful girf Kohaku Jo, the
f daughter of the eminent State Minis-
H . . f ter, Kamatari. Time and again her
N- father had rejected suits of betrothal,
1 if 1 vowing, "I will entrust my lovely
' flower to no one but a king," Finally
the emperor of China sent an embassy to Ka-
matari in Japan with a request for Kohaku Jo's
hand in marriageg for having heard of her
wondrous beauty, Koso had called together the
prominent men of his kingdom and said, "Many
marvelous tales have reached my ear of the
beauty and charm of the little Japanese flower.
Kohaku Jo, the most hononed Kamatari's daugh-
ter. She is the woman whom I choose to share
with me the sceptre of China. Go to her father
with my request for her hand." l1Al'ter a royal
but noisy reception, the envoys were situated
with all due ceremony and respect in a private
vving of the palace to wait the time when the
girl would have finished preparations for her
marriage. l1Kohaku Jo was heart-broken when
she learned of her father's plan for her future
and cried bitterly, "Why must this be. worthy
parent, vvhen I have come to love this land of
rare beauty and have found happiness here? If
it is thy wish that I go to China and to Koso.
I can but submit my unworthy will to thine."
q"Do not be so sad, my dear little daughter.
Koso is a kind and generous man who is be-

your every wish his command. You may choose

In the executive depart-
ment of the school, we have a group of men who
comprise the Board of Trustees. They are
cloaked in obscurity most of the time, but their
actions are quite obvious. Incessant betterment
of the conditions surrounding school-life makes
the group honored by the students. During the
past year their major enterprise was the construe-
tion ot' the f0Ul' new tennis courts, which both
the students and the townspeople have proved to
be the most popular innovation since the build-
ing of the gymnasium and plunge. lllln voicing
the appreciation of the student body and of the
faculty for all that has been done for us. we feel
that in this year as in previous years, the Board
has been laboring for the good ot' the students as
well as for the general welfare of the school. Our
gratitude. although not always expressed, i.s deep-
ly felt. These men are:

K 0 OMPRISING the staff this year were representatives from every class ex-
cept the freshman. Because of the congeniality of the members, the
work was comparatively easy, In order to promote the cooperative spirit
wi of this organization, the idea of social gatherings was institutedg these
'lil took the form of monthly luncheons. Regular business meetings have
' taken place in our new staff room. At these meetings. the articles were
discussed and read, and the necessary changes made after careful inspection had
been given each write-up. We hope that our work has not been in vain, for we
have labored with the enjoyment of the student body in mind. In all of our articles
we have tried to give the readers something which they would enjoy pursuing now
and after they have left school. While the task of editing an annual is a large one,
we have enjoyed doing it and hope that next year's staff will have as easy a time
as we have had and as much fun along with it.
me I S student body president, John Jones made a great success of the school
ELYQT? year, doing everything he possibly could toward the betterment of the
student body. His support of all school activities has also advanced the
'Q ""' Q! student body. lJlM'arjorie Williams, having the duty of being editor of
ga -Q5 the annual, has certainly finished matters in a lmrry Qwhich is very nec-
' essary in case of an annuali. Besides doing them hurriedly, she has done
them very well. llAlice Skinner, commissioner of finance, has faithfully collected
money at every basketball and football game played here, letting none get by with-
out paying his fee. Fortunately we have had quite a number of games here, and
Alice was always there at her post. llIRalph Hickcox, commissioner of advertise-
ment, has painted the town red for football games, and decorated the buildings with
basketball posters for basketball games. llllidward Wileman, commissioner of ath-
letics, has solemnly appeared before the student body and just as solemnly handed
out the athletic letters to the various boys who had earned them. In his office he
has done a two-fold job-fulfilled the commissioner's position ami also acted as
editor for boys' athletics. lllln the position of commissioner of entertainment,
Peggy Walker has faithfully accomplished her goal, that of providing assembly pro-
grams and making initiation plans for our incoming freshmen. lllJean Sturgeon. as
clerk of the commissioners, has dutifully recorded all actions of the commission:-rs
and posted them before the student body.

if E entered high school just like all the freshies before us had entered-
q'A'P green. However. we weren't long in teaming the ways of a full-fledged
it i- l high school class. Under the leadership of Robert Gray, assisted. by Dor-
l, ollly Elkins and Frank Hill, cightyftwo freshmen started our first year
3...-ig in Fillmore lfnion High School. We were well represented in athletics.
ls MU both boys and girls taking active parts. This year started us well on the
road to success. Illtlur second journey was guided by Mildred Price. Somehow
this year we seemed to lose most ot' our pep. tl guess we were saving it for the
next year when we would be the "jolly juniors"l. Even though our pep was at its
lowest ebb, otll' class members entered all of the school activities. lll'l'lie most im-
portant year was our third. We regained all of the pep that we started out with
as freshies. and more too. We spent most of our time selling hot dogs, liamburgers.
candy, soda pop, and what-have-you at all of the games. This brought in nearly
enough money to feed the seniors. 'the rest of the quota was made by selling home-
made candy at the plays and at other entertainments given at the high school. l1I'l'he
junior party at VVh.eeler's l-lot Springs was very successful, for we had plenty to
eat and plenty to do-swiirming. dancing, golf! .lust ask Miss Carlson if we didn't
have a keen time. for she was chased all over by Mr. Ross, who pursued her with
a stick! 1lI0ur last outburst of energy came during th.e two weeks of school when
we were preparing for the biggest event that we had yet encountered in any of our
journeys, the Junior-Senior Banquet. The decoration committee, assisted by the
rest of the juniors, made and strung paper flowers all over the ceiling of the ban-
quet hall, At one end of the hall was a real Japanese garden, fish pond. bamboo,
and cherry tree. Mr. John lnadomi was very kind in his donations, for he loaned
us the cherry tree and supplied fans. After the hall had been changed by a stroke
of magic into a bower of beauty, the long-awaited hour came. l1lBob Hatcher as
toastmaster was all' that could be wanted! He immediately gained the gratitude of
th.e assembled students and teachers when he said. "and you can use your fingers
in eating your chicken!" We had waitresses from the sophomore clsss, dressed as
cute little Japanese girls. Besides being very decorative, they were very efficient
and not once did they spill soup down the teachers' necks, for we didn't have soup.
This banquet will live long in the memory of the class, for through the necessity
of cooperation we learned to know each other better. lllThe climax of our career
came in our senior year. Senior ditch day was fun even though some ot' the jun-
iors did follow us and get rough. However. you must hand it to Miss Carlson for
taking her kidnapping as a joke. The day following was just as exciting, for we
seniors sprouted out in our new sweaters, proclaiming to the whol.e world that we
were the class ot' '32, lllMr. RosS comes in for his share of the credit for the
success of our senior year, along with Miss Carlson, for he acted as chief bouncer,
dues collector, general stabilizer. and jack-of-all-trades. As a class, we are quite
proud of our choice of advisersg although there! may be teachers who are equally
proficient in their suitability for advisership, we must bc shown.

,AU HE juniors have kept the pep with which they started as "fresh-
ies". They have shown this both socially and otherwise. One
of the most important social events of the junior class happened
the night of the thrilling day during which the juniors were the
5 1 predominating class. Un this night the juniors held a class party
which, inspired by an amber and gold flag, "went over big". fWe might
add that the sight alone of the senior flag wasn't so inspiring, but our ani-
mation came from thoughts recalled by it of our early discovery and con-
sequently of our victorious possession of it. Perhaps you would like to
know who found it? VVhere? And how? Well, just ask Ruth Balden if
she ever looked under a trophy case.J lil The junior class, which is large,
is well repiesenlcd in all athletics. The junior girls won the interclass
basketball tournament. The girls on this team were Peggy Walker, Eve-
lyn Dear, Marie Hastings, Doris Foster, Thelma McCawley, La Rue Steel-
smith, and the substitutes were Josephine Schwartz, Barbara Nelson, Mil-
dred VVillis, Lorene Britt. Ruth Balden, and Ardis Hansen. Many iuniors
were on the boys' B team in basketball, which has brought great honor to
our school by winning the Ventura county championship and by partici-
pating in the Southern California play-offs. These juniors were Edward
Vx7ileman, Richard Palmer, Ralph Hickcox, Jack Ipswitch, Lucius Spencer,
and Perry Davis. Many juniors have also taken part in football, swim-
ming, track, tennis, and other sports. l,HThis active class is also well repre-
sented in both the girls' and boys' glee clubs, in the scholarship, the Trigon
club, the French club, the Spanish club, the Girls' Athletic Association, and

talent in our class. Thelma McCawley took the girls' lead in the student
body play, "The Creaking Chair". Peggy Walker, Richard Palmer, Harold
Wright, and Dwight Goodcnough also took part in this play. Harriette
Warring, Ethel Yeckley, June Rose Winkler, Richard Palmer, Dwight
Goodenough, Harold Case, Philip Macy, Le Roy Amrhine, and Bill Reed,
all juniors, have leading parts in "Lotta", the high school operetta. ljIThe
junior class, by various activitiesssuch as, selling popsicles at football
games, having food sales, selling pop corn and pop at basketball games,
and having home-made candy saleshhas earned a fund with which they
intend to do "big things". Watch for the big things!

HAT class is this? The SOPHOMORE class, in other words, the
best class in the school. We know that the juniors and seniors
will agree to this, and also the faculty members. Why? Because
of our intelligence, and also because of the great help we have
been to the school this year. l1IWe don't believe that athletics
could have gone on without us. We were represented in football by Don-
ald Goodenough on the heavyweight team, and many of the boys were a
part of the lightweight team. In B basketball, we were represented by
Harold Bartels, and we know that there would not have been much of a
C or a D team without the help ot' the students in our cla.ss, many of our
most brilliant students having participated with this club. i1IOur class
party was a great success this year. We are sure none of the other classes
could have had such a wonderful time as was enjoyed by the members of
our class al this event. 11INow we come to the scholastic part of it. Our
class had a few of its members on the typing and shorthand teams. VVe
were also well represented on the scholarship society, many of our mem-
bers having taken part in this activity. Among them were Ella Long,
Ellen Guthrie, Robert Fairbanks, Berwyn Maxwell, and many others.
lHThe girls in our class also took part in athletics, having a basketball
team fShhh! They beat only the freshmenlj and a volley ball team.

Junior High fchool
HE Fillmore Junior High School has always been a vital part of
Fillmore's program of secondary education. It is important to
the community because it affords that type of educational
H method necessary to the adolescent period. It is here the student
i ' first learns to assume school responsibility, he gets his first ex-
perience in leadership, he develops the democratic ideals of the school.
His usefulness in the high school student body will be largely determined
by the degree to which his mimi has been molded around ideals of char-
acter, service, and loyalty. ljIAgain, the junior high school is important
for what it means to the student. Here he is given an opportunity to find
himself, to bring himself to a greater consciousness of his world and the
part in it he is to fill as a desirable citizen. iljtlpportunity is afforded the
student to explore a large number of fields of interest. A large number
of new and helpful experiences are brought to the student body through
the study of the regular curriculum which is made up of constants. such
as, social science, English, and mathematics, which every student takes,
and electives, two of which may be selected each semester. The elec-
tives are general shop, wood shop, both beginning and advanced, home
making, cooking, sewing, beginning and advanced. glee club, art, band,
orchestra, and journalism. llllt is one of the purposes of the junior high to
help each student to select some vocation for which he seems to have
some adaptation, and assist him in preparing for that field of endeavor.
l1IStudent body organizations consist of the Press Club, Scholarship Club,
Boys' Athletic Association, and Girls' Athletic Association. The junior
high discipline. is controlled by joint student body and faculty control. A
student court with its twelve patrolmen protects the rights of the students
and the best interests of the majority, enforcing the creed of the iunior
high. A system of service credits has been established whereby a student
is given recognition in the form of units of credit for every service he
renders to his school. These credits do not count toward graduation, but
they do serve as a record of each student's worth to the student body. The
high point students will receive special mention at graduation. l1This
year in the sport.s, the junior high has enjoyed some good inter-school
schedules in basketball, speed ball, track, and baseball. Close defeats
were suffered in all but track. The Russel cup was won at Carpinteria.
Charlie Hastings and Ray Brown were high point men in this event. The
latter won an individual honor medal. Ill Assemblies have been held regu-
larly each week this year under the direction of student leadership. Op-
portunities were given for many students to take part in these programs.

lf you think writing spelling words is loads and loads of' fun,
I wish you'd go and soak your head or take a nice long run.
Now l've had experience at writing words this night.
And l know well that I've accomplished writer's eramp for spite.
My arm just aches and aches and aches and so does my poor hand,
And the din that's roaring thru my head sounds like the Trojan Band
Bm I SllDD0se that long ago you had to do just this,
And now you hand it down to us because it is such bliss.
Now I recall that writing long gives to one the gout,

And if you're not real careful, dear spelling books will swoop
To the lily pond, and the gold fish th-ere will eat alphabetical soup.

about to enter. I am sad to see my little lotus
flower go, but she will thank' me in later years,

consoled her father. l1When she was told that
the wealth of China was to be placed at her
feet, her disappointment was somewhat soothed.
So. on her last visit to the temple. Kofukuji.
Kohaku Jo swore to send the three most valu-
able articles in all her husband's kingdom to
this temple, saying, "To you. O deities of my
ancestors, do I pray for happiness in my new
home. If this be granted this lowly daughter
of Japlan, she will send to the temale of Kofu-
kuii t e most valuable articles in C 'na." l1The
journey to her husband's home was much more
enjoyable than she had dared to imagine, and
in a very short while she was married and sit-
uated in her palatial home. 1JMuch to her
amazement and joy, Koso displayed deep pas-
sion for the girl and did all in his power to
make her happy in her new home. Often while
wandering together among the flowers of the
royal gardens, Koso would say to Kohaku Jo,
"My Lotus Blossom, since you left your honor-
able father's house in Japan to come to me in
China. the world has seemed to me fairer. the
duties of my kingdom become less irksome, and
the quarreling of my subjects turns to insig-
nificant trifling. Our home has been illumin-
ated by your bright self, and the long corridors
which but lately were filled with silence and
emxlmtiness now rin? with your merry laughter."

I learned that I must leave mv native country,
and I begged my father to permit me to stay.
but since I came. my attitude has changed. I
am treated so kindly and everyone has done so
much to make me hatmy. that I rarely think of
my old home." llDespite all this deference

f 00K at us. Don't we look industrious? And we
l are. llAt the beginning of the year we had fif-
teen members, but an interest was taken in the
society and our membership has increased.
q'l'he members of this society are by no means
dead. They prove themselves to be other than
pure book-worms by taking part in the activities of the
schoolg such as, dramatics, athletics, and musicg they also
have their parties and take a convention trip each year.
The trip this year led us to the state convention at Santa
Monica, where the speaker of the day, Geoffrey Morgan,
gave an inspiring address. All this is done as well as
keeping a leadership in classes and a high standing in all
lessons. qAny person fulfilling the scholarship require-
ments for eight quarters during the last three years of
high school, including two quarters of his senior year,
will be awarded a seal-bearer's pin and a gold seal on his
diploma. Thereupon he automatically becomes a perman-
ent member ol' the California Scholarship Federation.
llPermanent membership is an honor which carries with
it several worthwhile advantages. A seal-bearer is not
only asked by various state colleges for his attendance,
but is offered special privileges and aids. I1The seal-
bearers for 1932 are: Marjorie Williams, Alice Skinner,

in the discussion and profits by the ideas of the others.

San Luis R.ey,', "Green Mansions", and "The Old Curiosity

HE Girls' Glec Club as an organized body has
finished one of its most successful years. IIWC
decided to produce a one-act musical play in the
preparation for the operetta to follow later. We
chose "Lady Frances". a comedy dealing with
college life and some of its thrills. The leading
part of Frances was capably taken by Mildred Price, the
hostess of the sorority house was Alice Skinner, and the
comic part of Bridget was taken by Marjorie Williams.
Others lending their part to the plot were Lois Ellis, Wini-
frcd Casner, Carmen Navarro, and Arlene Dippel. This
small production met with public approval, for it was
given three times-to the high school student body, the
jnnior high, and Veterans' Service Club. qThroughout
the year we made public appearances, either as a sextette
or as the whole group, we sang for the Happy Hour pro-
grams, at a tea, and at the tree-planting ceremony on
Washingtorrs birthday, at which times we wore our new
blue and white uniforms. l1IThe opcretta which the com-
bined glee clubs chose was "Lotta", a musical comedy in
two acts, and a romance of '49. llWe, the members of the
glee club of '32. extend our heartiest wish-es to those girls
who will comprise the organization next year.

DEH the direction of Miss Smith, the Boys' Glee
Club has completed a successful year. During
the past two semesters we have presented sev-
eral skits for the student body, the main one
was a comedy which pertained to football, and
as it was given just before the Santa Paula foot-
ball game. it .exhorted the players "to be strong". qlte-
hearsals have been held at noon, so it has been only
through the cooperation of the members that any progress
has been made. Miss Smith has labored long and diligent-
ly with us in trying to prepare us for work in the oper-
etta, VVc have enjoyed putting on the production, "Lotta",
for it is always satisfying to accomplish something.

and tickets by Clough Pharmacy and the Fillmore Herald. l1The play was given

"Now, what was l saying, Hoot,
Before l made that shot?
0 yes, we had a play last night,
And it was plenty hot!"
This rich man, Edwin Latter,
fl'll tell you all about itj
Has received a message from his friend,
But his wife's inclined to doubt it.
The rich man's Chester Warring,
He played the part just swellg
His wife was Thelma McCawley,
'l'hat's all I need to tell.
Well, Edwin gets this letter,
And it's got him going 'round,
For he's going to receive a headdress,
Worth a hundred thousand pounds.
That's five hundred thousand dollars,
And it's quite a nice-sized pileg
So he's kind of scared some gangster's
Gonna do him up in style.
Because you see in Egypt
The boys are sort of tough,
And as this headdress came from there,
They're liable to get rough.
They don't like strangers going 'round
Rnbbing all their royal tombs.
Because they buried klng's jewels with them,
They filled up great big rooms.
So this jane that lives next door to Ed,
She comes s waltzing in
And she brings the gadget with her,
So the fun starts to begin.
The dame's in love with Latter,
Her name is Mrs. Carruthers,
And Latter knows she loves him,
And so do several others.
She's two-timing on her husband.
He's Mr. l.atter's pard,
The one that's over in Egypt now,
Working plenty hard.
Latter's got a bum leg on him,
Got a knife flung in his hip
While he was working down in Egypt,
So he has tu let things slip.
Well, then he's got a daughter, too,
Who played a real nice part.
lt was done by Peggy Walker,
Who acted from the start.
Then there's Holly, Latter's hutler,
Who's been with him fourteen years.
Willis Myers was Holly,
He always had the maid in tears.
Rnse Emily Winch. the parlor maid.
She's dead gone on Angus Holly,
But she's jealous of Mrs. Carruthev's maid,
So he has to keep her jolly.
Now john Cutting, Sylvia's fiance, comes
And brings a guy named Speed:
'l'hey're reporters for the "Courier News",
'l'hat's the paper England reads.
John Cutting was Richard Palmer,
Phillip Speed was Art O'Keefe--
fiieep your eye on that guy Phil Speed,
He causes plenty of griefj.
They want a story about the headdress,
And try plenty hard to get it.
They know it's been delivered,
But Latter won't admit it.
Then Latter calls a doctor,
He says "to observe his case",
But it's really for Anita,
Who can't stand blue color, any place
This Doctor Denver comes in now,
And goes up to his roomg
Then right after his arrival,
Things begin to boom.
Holly comes in the window,
And says Mrs. Carruther's killed!
Anita faints, and Rosie bawls,
And all the rest get thrilled.
Detective Hart follows Holly-
Played by Harold Wright--
And tells them how it happenedg
She was murdered in the night.
Inspector Hart starts in right there
To make a mess of things.
He finds blue scarabs and idols
And a couple of blue rings.
He accuses Cutting and Sylvia,
Then Anita and Rose,
But Holly proves it was none of them,
And still the mystery grows.
Then Speed makes his appearance,
And says he knows the crook:
lt was Mrs. Carruther's Egyptian.
Hart proceeds to take the hook.
Now up pipes little Rosie,
She sees something in Speed's coat:
Speed pulls out a wicked gat-
That makes Hart the goat.
But they capture Mr. Speed at last,
And he admits it all,
Tells he killed Mrs. Carruthers,
And how he came to fall.
He's an agent of the Ulema,
An Egyptian under-cover man,
Out to find Egyptian jewels,
And recover what he can.
He says he was Doctor Denver.
He came up in disguise,
So he could cop the headdress
And no one would get wise.
He tells why he killed Mrs. Carruthers,
And just how come he did it.
He was looking for the headdress,
Tryng to find where Holly hid it.
Then they take him off to prison.
Hart wants to know where
Holly hid the headdress:
"lt's in 'the creaking chair'."

G. A. A. PARTY-OCTOBER 30, 1931
W HE G. A. A. held its annual party in the gymnasium, which was appro-
priately decorated with .lack-o-lanterns and corn stalks, and orange and
'gf' black streamers hung around the edges. The first amusement was oi'-
fered when the girls, leading themselves by a rope, towel, wire, and what-
QREEJ5 have-you, made a tour of the shower room, at all times wet, but now a
3 1 drenched mess. After the athletes returned to the main part of the gym,
the remains of a deceased man were passed along with many thrills among the girls.
The party terminated with refreshments of apple cider, apples and doughnuts, and,
as usual, "a good time was had by all".
JUNIOR PARTY-DECEMBER 9, 1931
The juniors put over a very successful day with the seniors gone. Of course,
they went to Saugus to bid the seniors goodbye and have a nice time in the snow,
but they almost didn't get back with the seniors attacking their car and imagining
they could take a Ford apart. However, they succeeded in pulling down the
seniors' decorations and putting up theirs. They brought the exciting and eventful
day to an end with a party held in the art room.
SPANISH PARTY-DECEMBER 12, 1931
A party, held at the home of Mrs. Jarrett, was enjoyed by all the members of
the third year Spanish class. Games were not indulged in that night, as Mrs. .lar-

fun was had, however, and before the evening was over a delicious Spanish dinner
was served to prove her heart had not turned completely to stone, The notebooks
will prove quite interesting when finished, according to all reports, and will be
worth looking over.
FOOTBALL BANQUET-DECEMBER 15, 1931
The football banquet, held in the high school cafeteria, was very informal and
hilarious. As the tables were decorated with hollyberries and other yule-tide
greenery, the players were bombarded with nice little red pellets. The dinner
consisted of turkey and trimmings, as one might expect. Those of us who were
not the honored guests couldn't tell you what the little footballs of ice cream tasted
like, but from all reports they were very good. Letters were presented to the
members of the team by Ebbie Wileman a little later, along with speeches from
Coach, "Mrs. Coachv, Mr. Hull, Johnny Jones, John Allee. and Pat Ilarthorn, who
were the speaker.s of the evening, and did past-Captain Johnny make a break?

The second and third year Spanish students staged a party at the high school,
A business meeting. conducted in Spanish, started the evening off just right. The
main thing accomplished was the name of the club, "Los Pit-aros". Everyone had
a good time. trying to sing Spanish songs and understand the three Spanish plays
acted out by the different classes. A delicious Spanish dinner was served with
Mexican hot chocolate. After several attempts to break a "pif1ate", it was given up
and thc candy, nuts, and other goodies were fished out with hands. Everyone
went home with a lot more Spanish to their credit from the talk that had ensued
during the evening.
FRENCH PARTY-JANUARY 11, 1932
The French party was scheduled to take place in the sewing room, and al-
though sewing was not to be incfuded in the games, the members and their friends
spent most of the evening in the study hall playing "murder", However, before the
meeting was over most of them had journeyed back to the sewing room for the de-
licious dinner that was served in complete French style, The new members who
were initiated seemed to be having a fine time until after dinner when the dishes
were stacked up and they were escorted to the kitchen. Aside from that, everyone
had a sumptuous time and went home quite tired from the after-effects of "murder".
HI-Y PARTY-FEBRUARY 12, 1932
The Hi-Y boys entertained their girl friends with a get-together at the high
school in the art room. Many games were played during the evening and were en-
joyed by Miss Carlson. IMr. Clemorc, and Mr. Hull. as well as by the students. 'The
decorations were carried out to represent St. Valentine's Day and little Valentine
favors were given as prizes to the winners of the various games, which the Hi-Y

Abraham Lincoln: His Chorocler ond lhe Dori It Dloued
Fifst Prize in Lincoln Essay Contest
I A f I INCOLN'S personal qualities not only made him one of the best loved fig-
ures in American history, but they also played an important part in
tl at shaping his own life so that he might render undying services to his
5, , country. 1llEven during his boyhood, Lincoln showed signs of great
ffiigfeiff strength of character. His outstanding characteristic, his sympathy for
f' ' , the oppressed, was expressed in many ways-such as, by his defense of
helpless animals-a fact that foreshadowcd his emancipation of the slaves later on.
During those early years at home, he was being prepared for his subsequent
life. The hard, outdoor life on the frontier with its disappointments and heart-
aches trained him so that afterwards when he became president, he was able to
meet the trying demands of his office.
As tim.e went on his outstanding character became more evident. As a youth
he had been energetic, tender, and honest, as a business man he was obliging and
sincere, as a lawyer he combined excellent reasoning with his ever-constant in-
tegrity, as a man one word describes him-his humanity,
Finally, after numerous trials were behind him and many were before him,
he became president-then came the Civil VVar. While in this office as the head
of our country. Lincoln repeatedly showed his broad-mindcdness and good judg-
ment. ln one case, although a certain man had shown marked 1'udeness to Lincoln,
the latter appointed him to the office of Secretary of War because he saw good
qualities in the man, in fact the necessary ones for the position, As a result of
this appointment the cou'ntry was greatly benefited, and that was all that mattered
as far as Lincoln was concerned.
Although Lincoln liked to oblige people. and was kindness itself, he never for-
got his rank as president. During the war he was the power of the nation, yet he
never overstepped his bounds.
During this period, Lincoln had to also act as commander-in-chief of the
Northern forces, And what a job it was! The officers were jealous of one an-
other, retreat after retreat was reported, mothers of both sides begged him and
citicized him in behalf of their sons, and above all the whole thing was so un-
certain, yet with his grasp of details. his infinite patience, and his clear logic to-
gether with his firm determination in allowing no insuhordination, even to his
most intimate friends, Lincoln succeeded.
In the most discouraging times of the war, Lincoln went to the camps to cheer
the soldiers and won them over by his comradely association with them, his acts
of mercy, and his display of interest.
Even in the face of defeat, Lincoln had to convince the people he was right.
but he again showed his ability as a public speaker by putting across his argument
in a form so clear and sincere that even the simplest country boy could understand
Thus it was shown that Lincoln was the essential support of the nation. By
his tact and sincerity he won over the people. by his charity he won the hearts of
his soldiers, and by his encouragement and humor he kept up the spirits of the
He was not a perfect man, of course, yet, having formed the conviction he was
right. he had the strength of character to do the seemingly impossible-remove the
curse of slavery from our countryland preserve the Union.

First Prize in Washington Essay Contest
""'Illi great Washington was not great simply because he was a good mang
his exalted position in the heart of every true American is not due to his
ability a leader of men, nor is he honored and venerated the world
, over because he was the first President of our great nation. Rather, his
-N greatness lies in his accomplishments, lllln reviewing the different
w i phases of Washington's life. it wouid almost seem that each event had
been planned and each detail carefuily plotted, so closely do the succeeding periods
of his life fit together, each one preparing him for the next. He first attracted at-
tention as a young surveyor. His friends soon saw that he was gifted with many
remarkable qualities and would go far on the road to success. His rise was rapid.
At the age of twenty-two he was nationally known through his movements in con-
nection with thc defeat of Braddock, 1755, and when war broke out with England,
he was placed in command of the American Continental Army. Here YVashington
showed his real value to the revolutionists. When his soldiers. wounded, discour-
aged, hungry, and clad in rags, were willing to lay down their arms and remain
under the cruel British yoke: when they despaired of ever being victorious and
disconsolately looked toward the future with thoughts only of defeat, when funds
and supplies were wanting, when all the colonies were disheartenedg and when
the fate of a nation hinged upon his ingenuity and resourcefulness, Washington's
buoyant, hopeful spirit and his courage in the face of defeat and death inspired the
war-weary soldiers on to new heights and final victory.
After the war Washington retired to his home at Mount Vernon. Here he
remained in private life as a farmer, watching the actions of Congress and the
effect of the Articles of Confederation upon the public. At one time the colonists,
disgusted with Congress, offered him the kingship, tml this proposal was flatly re-
jected by XVashington, who desired a nation composed of closely united states,
headed by a strong central government, and ruled by the people for the people.
Although he played a large part in these and subsequent events, his natural mod-
esty led him to keep his name from the public eye as much as possible.
In 1789 General Washington was again called to the service of his country.
During his first presidential term he was faced by a stupendous task-that of carry-
ing through the first years a government of an untried, untested type in which the
people themselves did not believe. When all perils and snags had been safely
passed, and the ship of state was far out from the rocky shore, thell and only then
did Washington deem it time to retire forever from public life,
llis manoeuvres in war can not be criticized, his generalship was superb. l.e-I
by his patriotism and love of country. he adopted a straightforward attitude. never
swerving until he reached his goal-the independence of the American people.
ln peace Washington was equally great. His almost infallible judgment. his
patience, his tact, his integrity, and his genius as a leader made him all that could
be desired as a first president. In short, Washington, using the rough, uncultured
colonists of that day as his clay, moulded our nation, helped it in its precarious
start, aint in its infancy guided it past all dangers.
Washington is ours. and the best way we may show our regard for him is by
upholding the principles which were embodied in his daily life. He dedicated his
life to the service of a land destined to become the leader in all world affairs, and
of him it may be said that he was the "Father of His Country".

1 The Eiiecis oi Burning oii Brush Lands
First Prize in Farm Bureau Water Conservation Essay Contest
Q' o ATER is lifeg without a plentiful supply of water, civilization cannot exist.
QUAD? It is necessary for drinking purposes, it generates the electricity which
:L lights our homes, and it is the cheapest means of transportation. This
county is wholly dependent upon agricu'lture, which, in its turn, relics
completely upon water. Therefore, we must conserve our water supply
ff' 'ft and use our land to the best advantage.
Since fire is and always has been an enemy of all plant life, and brush and
vegetation are among our strongest allies in the fight for water conservation, we
must guard our chaparral-covered hillsides from the ravages of fire. Some of these
fires are unintentional, some of incendiary origin, Many people have the mistaken
idea that burning brush increases the value of land, but this has been disproved
time and again.
To illustrate this point. let us review the history of a small valley. First, it
could be seen peacefully nestling between the mountains. Through it flowed a
small, clear stream, which ran all the year around. At the head of the valley, in
its watershed, green vegetation grew abundantly, and the hillsides were covered
with brush. preventing excessive erosion and run-off during the rainy season.
Enough water percolated far below the surface to replenish the underground
reservoirs. Farther down the valley one could see spreading grounds, built by en-
terprising men who realized the value of water and its probable scarcity in the
future. Agriculture was the most important industry in this valley, and the farmers
obtained a, copious supply of water from wells, reservoirs, dams, and from the
Then came fire. Over the mountains and foothills it swept, destroying all
trees, brush, and grass in its path and leaving the hills barren and denuded, It was
not until the coming of the next heavy rain that the worst effects were seen. The
rain, pounding down upon the bare slopes and finding no brush and litter to im-
pede its progress, ran down the hill in tiny rivulets which gradually grew larger
and finally merged into one stream. Many streams like this flowed into the main
river, until it became much larger than a similar rain would have made it before
the fire. All the water ran quickly off to the ocean and was wasted, Instead of
running during the whole year this creek now dried up by early summer, and crops
suffered accordingly. Along with the run-off of water, soil erosion became a ser-
ious problem. Water coming down the hillsides gathered much soil and sediment
which were deposited in dams and reservoirs, filling them up. If the silt-laden water
was run into spreading grounds, the sediment settled on the bottom, filling up the
pores and preventing deep percolation. Water like this could have been put into
spreading grounds. but it would have been necessary to lengthen them, and ex-
penses would have increased. After several rains like this, the rich, fertile topsoil
was washed away to the hard subsoil. which was more impervious to water. Thus
percolation to the underground basins was greatly decreased, and the water level
in nearby wells was lowered. The farmers, who had always depended upon water
from the river and their wells, were now hampered by a lack of water. Hereto-
fore they had irrigated all through the summer, obtaining most of their water from
the river. Now it had no water in it by the end of June or July, leaving the farm-
ers solely dependent upon their wells, vvhich became dry after a year or two, due
I9 CODA DE CDO- 32
to the lowering of the underground water. So the farmers were stranded with
crops that had to be irrigated. but they had no water.
This illustration shows the devastating consequences which can follow a brush
fire, lt can readily be seen that the losses are great. For this reason we must be
educated to its necessity, more men must be trained to meet these problemsg more
funds are need-ed to carry on this work, and public support must be given. Other-
wise we cannot hope to proceed far in this essential program. Therefore, to assure
the continued prosperity of Ventura County, we must protect our brush lands, and
by thus doing secure an ample water supply for the future use of our citizens.

way of a forecast. We played Burbank first and lost by the score of 13 to 6. The
boys must have improved their playing during the next week for they defeated
San Fernando with the score of 7 to 0. The following week our improving team
battled Van Nuys to a 6 to 6 tie. However, let's get to the league games, starting
with Santa Paula, our neighboring rival.
Fillmore 6--Santa Paula 0
This was the game that changed the outlook of' the success of the team. The
teams were evenly matched in the first half, but in the last half Fillmore showed
its superiority by making a touchdown. What a day for Fillmore!
Santa Barbara 27-Fillmore 7
We were not so successful in our next game with Santa Barbara. The Santa
Barbara boys proved too good. Against the third or fourth string, however, the
Flashes succeeded in scoring seven points. Not so good for the second league
game, but let's go on to the tilt with the Pirates.
- Ventura 19-Fillmore 12
What an exciting game this turned out to be! Playing on their own field, the
Flashes battled the Pirates tp the score cf 19-12. The flashy Art O'Keefe ripped
through the line for the f'rst touchdown. Although Fisher and lpswitch broke up
their line plays the Pirates, having brought the score to 13 to 12 in their favor, got
lucky and completed a pass which led to the final touchdown.
Harvard 26-Fillmore 0
Playing on a different field and having several eripples must have influenced
us in the game with Harvard Military Academy, Anyway, the Harvard boys handed
us a defeat by the score of 26 to 0. Lucky this wasn't a league game! Well, let's
go to the Armistice game with Burbank.
Burbank 13-Fillmore 6
Fillmore kept the lead easily during the first half, but in the second haff they
had some had breaks, allowing Burbank to tic and then beat them. Our Flashes
played hard all the time, but couldn't stop the Burbank advance, losing 13 to 6.
Oxnard 0-Fillmore 6
The boys must have become tired of losing games. according to the outcome
of the Oxnard game. Although the Flashes outplayed the Yellow Jackets in the
first half. it was not until the second half that they made a touchdown. Too bad
Captain Ed Spraggins fell on the three-yard line, for he would have scored another
touchdown against the Yellow Jackets. 'Ihe Flashes were clicking as a team that
day. Hurray! An unexpected tie for the championship!
Play-off: Ventura 18-Fillmore 0
The game started out with a bang, Spraggins throwing a long pass to Wile-
man, who was hiding out on the first play. The teams fought evenly in the first
half, neither team being able to score. In the second half, the Pirates intercepted
a pass and galloped for a touchdown, During the remaining quarter of the game.
although the Flashes fought valiantly, their opponents scored two more touch-
downs to end the game with a score of 18 to 0.

make some description of a showing for the school. Next year we shall see a new
lightning lightweight team and different scores brought home. Ill Despite the terri-
ble scores made against us, several of the members of the team deserve some real
credit for the hard playing they did in order to save us from a more severe defeat.

HAT a basketball team! 'l'hc second county championship in two years!
Q A 9 Starting their season with the l'hUlilIJl0l1Slllll tealll of last year, the boys
had hopes of easily winning their league and perhaps ttle Southern Cali-
fornia championship. Nor were the boys' hopes far wrollg, for they won
their league and lost the Southern California championship by only four
2' "', i" . poillts in the last minutes of play. Tough luck! l1I'1'he line-up of the
chalnpionship teanl is as follows: Wileman, Hickcox, lpswitch, Goodenough, for-
wards, Palmer, Frenllin, centersg liartels, Moreno, Spencer, 0'Keefe, guards. q'I'he
scores ill the league games were: Oxnard 21, Fillmore 385 Ventura 15, Fillmore 213
Santa Paula 4, Fillmore 32, Santa Barbara 10, Fillmore 3-lg Oxnard 11, Fillmore 305
Ventura 13, Fillmore 273 Santa Paula 21, Fillmore 314 Santa Barbara 15, Fillmore 11.
ll'l'he next game, the first gtlllll' in the S0ll1lll0l'll California play-off, was with Hel'-
bert Hoover High School ill Glendale. The game started out fast, and at the Qlltl
of the last half the boys easily kept the lead. The game ended with the score 20 to
17. l1'l'he game with Atascadero, contrary to predictions, lll1'IlL'tl out to be the clos-
est und 1111051 exciting ill the play-off. The game ended with the score 11 to 11. In
the overtime period, Filllnore got hot and won with a score of 15 to ll. l1iThe play-
off with Bonita ruined our chances in the play-off last year. Determined that the
Bonita tealn would not defeat theln again, the boys played hard and won the game
18 to 20. l1'l'he last and most heart-breaking game was with Hoover High of San
Diego. The Flashes were leading at the elld of the first half with the score, 10 to 8.
In the last half, however, the Hoover boys got lucky ill the last few minutes of play
and took the lead, which they held to the Clltl of the game. The final score was
18 to 22.

1 O ELI., folks, here we are in basketball season again, the season in which
Coach Kennedy always succeeds in putting out one championship team.
, :in 5 This year's heavyweight team did not happen to be the championship
team, nor was it very successful, but it did succeed in defeating our old
Q.,,.a.. rival, Santa Paula. We can't blame the heavyweights for the results of
"6 ft the second game with Santa Paula, because the lightweights played most
of that game. The boys had a little hard luck in several of their games, losing them
ill the last few minutes of play by a few points, Following is the standing of the
teams in the league games: Fillmore 22, Oxnard 34, Fillmore 12, Ventura 27, Fill-
more 18, Santa Paula 17, Fillmore 29, Santa Barbara 16, Fillmore 25, Oxnard 20,
Fillmore 30, Ventura 11, Fillmore 17, Santa Paula 9, Fillmore 20, Santa Paula 14.
Of the "C" and "DU teams, the "D" was the most successful. The "C" team
won only one game during the season, beating Oxnard with a scor.e of 17 to 11 in
their second game with them. The "D" team, under the capable leadership of
Captain Jack Warring, won all its games but one. The tie with Ventura for the
league championship was not played off. Bert Clemore. who coached the boys,
this season, believes that Fillmore would have defeated the Ventura "Ds" if they
had played. Anyway we'll probably have some good lightweight material next year.
League games standing: "C" Class: Fillmore 21, Oxnard 21, Fillmore 2, Ventura 9,
Fillmore 17, Oxnard 11, Fillmore 12. Ventura 19. "D" Class: Fillmore 8, Oxnard
25, Fillmore 15, Ventura 13, Fillmore 20, Oxnard 9, Fillmore 12, Ventura 21.
Fillmore was not very successful in its baseball season this year. Coach Cle-
more says the poor results were du.e to the fact that the boys neglected to comme out
for practice, however, we'll not blame them and say it was due to the fact that this
year was the first season the boys played indoor baseball. We won only one game,
a practice game with Santa Paula, but we gained valuable experience. Let's hope
this experience will have a good influence on next y.ear's team.
The Flashes that competed in the track meets for Fillmore this year were
almost all successful in their events. The boys were unable to win the meets be-
cause there wasn't enough of them, but they were able to bring home first honors
in some of the events. In the county meet, Bill Johnson won first place in the "A"
class pole vault, Ernie Jones, first place in "B" broad jump, and Jack Warring, first
place in the "C" class pole vault. ll1Of the three classes, the following earned their
letters: "A", Coggeshall, Ernie Jones, Bill Johnson, De Fever, and Spraggins, "B"

"fm HE Girls' Athletic Association has become more active this year than in the
preceding years. llAt the first of the year the girls decided to have the
iT 'TS' English F for their letters, which are made by obtaining two hundred
fifty points. lllluring April we had a beach party on the Rincon, where
H u swimming and a wiener roast were the main events ofthe evening.
. .sy Everyone had lots of fun. l1'lhree representatives and the adviser,
Miss Duncan, attended the Semi-Annual Convention of the Girls' Athletic Federation
of Southern California at Burbank High School on April 23. Athletic associations
from thirty-six high schools were represented. l1IAn all-league play day was at-
tended on November 7 by the G. A. A. girls at Ventura Junior College. The day
was started by a posture parade and afterwards different sports were played be-
tween olher schools. l1Tl1e seniors attended a Senior Play Day at Santa Barbara
on March 12th. The senior basketball team was taken to play as one of the inter-
scholastic teams. llThe basketball teams created a great interest. The scores of
the interclass games were as follows: juniors 19, seniors 9, juniors 19, sopho-
mores 3, seniors 43, freshmen 3, sophomores 1, seniors 14. The freshmen played
tl1e eighth grade, winning by a score of 14 to 6. The juniors were victorious over
all. qThe spring tennis tournament was a great success. The girls all entered
and champions were to receive cups. The Business 8: Professional Women's Club
gave the girl singles a cup. The mixed doubles were given a cup by the Rotary
Club. The courts were paved, and lights were contributed by the business men of
the town. The paved courts and lights created great enthusiasm. lllThe new idea
of tumbling was first introduced into the school by Miss Duncan. Books and charts
were obtained showing the different stunts. An assembly program was put on by
the girls, who formed pyramids and did tumbling stunts. The program went over
with great success.
I like to view the ocean wide,
And see the swells break with a roarg
I like to watch the coming tide,
And see it go back from the shore.
In days that are most stormy
And the lighthouse does its work,
I think there is such harmony
In the booming of the surf.
In days of peacefulness and calm,
I like upon the sand to lie,
And breathing airy, soothing balm,
To watch my ships go by.

COUNTRY BOY MAKES GOOD
Probably one of the most distin-

generation, John Jones, was recently
appointed ambassador to England by
President Keith Kenfield. a one-time
school-mate. In making this appoint-
ment, Pres, Kenfield is stated as say-
ing. "I believe that in John Jones we
have the diplomat of the age. His gift
of oratory, his level head, and mild
temper together with an extensive edu-
cation in language and diplomacy is a
combination rarely found in one man,
be it whomever you may name." Mr.
Jones received part of his education in
Fillmore, California, where he studied
language under the eminent traveler,
Edith Jiarrett. Diplomatic studies were
taken from Glenn B. Stull, noted cham-
pion of child welfare and woman suf-
NOTED PIANIST SUED ON ALIENA-
TION OF AFFECTION CHARGE
Miss Lois Smith, celebated classical
musician. was defendant today in an
alienation of affection suit when Mrs.
Ernest Jones brought charges against
her. Mrs. Jones cried out bitterly,
"Ernest and I were supremely happy
until this woman began to play on his
heartstrings with her romantic and
subtie compositions, then all was end-
ed between us. for he was blinded by
her constant atteutionf' Miss Smith
did not deny the charges nor did she
affirm them, saying, "Ernest and I
have always been the best of friends.
and I hope that we may remain such."
PROMINENT BACHELOR ADDRES-
ln a speech glowing with satire and
sarcasm directed toward the fair sex,
Weston Lander warned his fellow-men
of the Single Meu's Club against the
wiles of women, In the course of his
address, he said, "In my youth, girls
had a certain attraction for me, but as
the years passed by they proved to be
fickle. I hold no emuity toward them,
but I feel the men would profit by
avoiding their association as much as
possible." We agree with'Mr. Lander.
Walter Boynton, amateur aviator,
narrowly escaped his demise today
when his airplane crashed on the foot-
ball field of the Fillmore Union High
School. Young Boynton was trying to
save the price of admission to a game
in progress, but unfortunately stretched
his neck so far that he lost control of
the ship, which he regained when only
a few feet from the ground.
Marjorie Williams, that plump little
high school girl of 1932, is now in
George White's Scandals as head chor-
us girl and dancer. She has just ac-
quired a good name and has a great
future ahead of her.

"Is the modern generation worse
than its predecessor?" This, as in
every age, is the prevailing question.
ln 1932, the parents argued that the
young people were doomed to perdi-
tion and all because of the automobile,
which then was the .mode of travel.
Of a Sunday afternoon one might see
Curtis Fisher, accompanied by a bevy
of friends, burning up the road be--
tween Fillmore and the coast cities.
Now, the youngsters-such as, Neill
Kennedy, Jr., and Glen B. Stull, III, are
criticised for every action from racing
their rocket planes recklessly to ditch-
ing school once or twice a semester.
To those of us who have kept apace
with the times, this new diversion, a
logical advancement in the mechanical
world, is no worse than the popular
awto racing which took place in thc
Legion Ascot Stadium years ago. As
you think of how Dwight Goodenough,
Jack Ipswitch, Weston Lander, Ro-
berta Olney, and Mary Horton used to
tear up the road racing with Earl
Hume-is the modern racing any worse
in comparison to the speed of the
times than it was in '32? As for
ditching,--why, Willis Myers, the little
angel of F. U. H. S., was was known
to cut class occasionally, and even
Johnnie Jones, who was student body
president in 1932, ditched. Did this
hurt their reputation with the teach-
ers? I should say not! They became
the office pets, for Mr. Stull would
hold private tea parties in his office
for the two favorites.
When the parents of our age rave
Skinner Acquits Man
After the most sensational murder
case in recent history. Miss Alice Skin-
ner, spinster judge, fre-ed the mystery
man, Mr. X, when evidence totally re-
moving the least suspicion from his
name was given into the hands of the
This ease first aroused interest
when Miss Skinner voiced her ultima-
tum, "I will never rest until the man
is convicted or absolutely proved guilt-
Since this time the attorney for the
defense has spent many long hours
hunting for some positive proof of the
man s innocence.
On February 2, 1932, charges were
broumght against Mr. X, a prominent
physician, for murder, after it was
proven that one of his wealthy patients
had died from a wound inflicted by a
surgical knife. As there were no
nurses present at the time of the emer-
gency operation, it has been almost
hopeless to prove that the death was
not murder in the first degree. The
reason charges were brought against
Mir. X was that for years there had
been a fued between the two families.
As Dr. X was the only practicing sur-
geon in town at the time the operation
was necessary, he was called in.
It was necessary to call in other
physicians to determine the exact
cause of the demise, but after scien-
tific research it has been discovered
that the man died of an incurable dis-
ease, practically unknown to the medi-
cal world of today.
On his release, Mr. X stated, "I have
never doubted that I would be freed.
for my innocence has been evident
ever since I was apprehended. Of
course, the prosecuting attorney would
never take my word as to the cause of
my patient's death."
Judge Skinner is to be commended
on her extreme vigilance in all matters
of such vital importance to the civi-
lized world, for it is such watchfulness
that makes the dangers of everyday
about the giddy youths of America.
