THE FLAME STAFF
The staff of the Flame of lanuary, 1935, have tried to make this book one which
is the concern of all, and not only of the senior class which has published it.
The aim of its editors has been to consider the interests of the other classes as
Well as their own.
For the first time since the fire, the Flame has included Within its covers
pictures of the orchestra, the Girls' Glee Club, club officers, and class officers,
together with an account of various activities. To provide for this class-Wide
expansion, the book has been enlarged from twenty-four pages, its previous
size, to thirty-two pages. With this their goal, it is presented to you, as your
book, to be treasured among high school memories.

GREEN AND GOLD
The Green and Gold, published Weekly, aims to inform the students concerning
things that happen throughout the school and to keep them posted as to coming
events. lt endeavors to stimulate school spirit and offers a chance for student
expression. lt strives to uphold high standards in every school activity. lt en-
courages excellence in reporting and develops habits of initiative and respon-
sibility on its staff.
Because the paper is supported by Student Body funds, its circulation in
the school is confined to those who have paid their Student Body fee. Positions
on the staff are filled by promotion. Thus the editor and sports editor have
previously been assistant editors, and these places, in turn, are filled from the
ranks of the reporters. The reporting staff is composed mainly of News ll students
though they are assisted by members of the News l class after the middle of

With an enthusiastic and co-operative spirit prevailing in the lesters' Workshop,
a most successful group of plays has been staged this term, under the direction
of Miss Beatrice B. Burnett.
The first major production was the presentation of Peter B. Kyne's story,
"CaDDY Ricks", on October 26. The lovable, stern character oi Cappy was
capably portrayed by Wayne Niske, while Margaret Skeen was his persistent
daughter Florrie. The role oi the dashing, care tree Captain Matt Peasley, :fiance
oi Florrie Ricks, was taken by Bob Elsasser. Charles Pyles played the comedy
role oi Cecil Pericles Bernard, a Bostonian, Margie Furtado, the part oi Ellen
Murrayg Lloyd Gray, Iohn Skinner, Cappy's ever-obedient aidey Bob Nielson,
Singleton, a lawyer: Don Crase, Brookfield, a chauiteurp and Elizabeth Ianssen,
Cappy's lovable sister. Geraldine Schulte was student director, while George
Sleevy and Dorothy Sturgess were in charge oi staging.
ln connection with the observance of American Education Week, through
an evening entertainment, the dramatics group presented a one-act play, "The
Slave ot Two Faces." The performance revealed the tate oi two girls who faced
lite together but who chose to follow diiierent courses. Martha Barker portrayed
the one who chose wisely and lanet Chase the other. Bob Nielson took the part
A Christmas Pageant, contrasting the joyous and the serious moods of the
Yuletide, was presented tor the public on December l3 and l4. The iirst halt ot
the entertainment was devoted entirely to trolic, being staged at the entrance
ot a Toymaker's home. The remainder of the program was the presentation ot
Henry Van Dyke's "The Other Wise Man."
As the term draws to a close several groups in the lesters' Workshop are at
work, planning for the production ot the story, "The Wizard oi Cz", to be inter-
woven with novel dances and stunts, and presented at an evening performance
The Executive Board is composed of twelve members, including the Student
Body officers, class presidents, editor of the Green and Gold, and chairmen of
the Student Control Boards. They meet every second Wednesday, alternating
With the Student Council to discuss anything pertaining to the school's activities
and general policies. Some of the matters passed on by the board are the school
budget, assemblies, and questions of current interest, such as the preparation
of Christmas boxes and the securing of school stickers. The matters on which
the board looks favorably are later referred to the Student Council for final dis-
The Boys' Student Control Board was created in May, 1933, when the Fremont
Student Body voted a number of amendments to the school constitution. Since
that time it has been one of the most active groups in school. The members may
be identified by their green and gold arm bands, which also serve as their mark
of authority. The main duties are the regulation of traffic in the halls between
periods, keeping the corridors clear during the noon hour and enforcing ground
regulations at lunch time.
Class officers, nominated by petition and elected at the same time as Student
Body officers, serve for one term though they are not barred from a second term
at a later time. With the exception of the low sophomore class which elects only
a chairman each class has a president, vice president, and secretary. These
positions are filled at the end of the term previous to their semester of service.
The main duties of the president are to look after the various activities which
tradition has assigned to each year in high school 5 such as, the Sophomore Hop,
the Iunior Prom, the Senior Ball, and the Senior Dinner. Class leadership falls
about equally to boys and to girls.
The Clubs, organized at the request of the students, cover a Wide range of inter-
ests, including science, sports, dramatics, language, and creative writing. They
meet before or after school, once a Week when various kinds of entertainment
are enjoyed,. The programs vary according to the nature of the club, but often
include plays, games, contests, and talks. Occasional trips are made by some
of the groups.
0 EXECUTIVE BOARD S BOYS' CONTROL 0 CLASS OFFICERS
The Girls' Student Control Board is composed of ten senior girls, of good stand-
ing, whose duty is to see that the regulations of the school are carried out. They
have posts assigned inside and outside the gym, in the rest rooms and halls
during each lunch period, to see that they are kept neat and orderly. The girls
are designated, while on duty, by a yellow arm band with a green emblem.
Members of the board are selected by a committee consisting of the senior coun-
selors, Miss Moorshead and the chairman of the board.
The R. O. T. C., under the command of Captain Epes, military instructor, had a
very successful term, holding three battalion parades and accomplishing a good
deal of ,theoretical work. Cadet Lieutenant Colonel Bockafellow took command
of all parades. At each one medals were awarded to the best lieutenant, sergeant,
corporal, private, and recruit. Theoretical work covered map reading, message
writing, first aid, scouting and patrolling, musketry, national defense, and mili-
tary organization. The rifle team competed successfully in a series of interschool
matches losing only to Technical and firing 358 points in two successive matches,
the highest fired in any match this year.
The Girls' Glee Club is composed of twenty-eight members under the direction
of Miss Lula Merchant. The club does advanced work in voice culture, and their
repertoire of songs contains many familiar classics by Beethoven, Schubert and
Mendelssohn. Some of the selections sung by the glee are done a capello.
Programs on which the Girls' Crlee has participated during the past semester
have been the Dads' Night program, Armistice Day assembly, Open House
Night, and the Christmas Pageant.
Six members of the club are in the Saturday Morning Choir, under the
direction of Mr. Glenn H. Woods, supervisor of music. They are: Bernice Bianchi,
Margaret Doling, Olive Mellow, Sara Lundtoft, Veryl Smith, and Phyllis Waring.
The Advanced Orchestra, composed of thirty-nine members, is drawn from the
two beginning orchestras on a basis of ability. Six advanced students also play
in the All City School Orchestra where Charles Pyles is concert master and
assistant conductor. They are, besides Charles, Harold Bowman, Terence Hand-
ley, lean l-lummell, Boy Liedstrand, Betty Teeter, and Earl Saxton.
The Band of twenty-nine members functions as an B. C. T. C. unit. lt fur-
nishes martial music for reviews and parades and "pep" music for rallies and
games. Mr. Arden W. Allen is in charge of instrumental instruction.

The crew season, scheduled for juniors and seniors only, opened at Lake Merritt
on September l8, with a turnout of one hundred seventy-five. Virginia Roy and
Winifred Young were the crew managers. Climaxing the season a regatta and
picnic supper were held when Waldyne Simpson's boat was Winner in the form
event and Frances Hartsock's in the speed event. The victors received paddles
and ribbons as souvenirs.
The basketball season opened on November 12, with the first of the confer-
ence games being played during the gym period, and only the semi-finals and
finals being played after school. The final game came before the semi-annual
sports dinner, held Ianuary 4. The student manager of this sport Was Dorothy
Volley ball and tennis were given over to sophomore play only. September
23 marked the opening of the seven-Week volley ball season, during which
Dorothy Chase acted as manager. Charlotte Spenser's team held top-notch
place when the season closed. Approximately sixty-five sophomores turned out
for tennis under lane Blanchet as manager.
Swiming Was held for ten Weeks at the Y.W.C.A. Iune Mayrand and Dorothy
White were managers.
One of the most important events on the sports calendar was the formation
of a Sports Council, made up of a representative from each gym class, plus
the various sports managers. The duty of the Council is to act as an executive
group in all matters pertaining to sports in general. Officers of the Council are:
Dorothy Carr, president: lane Blanchett, vice president, Maude Harker, secretary.
Hailed as the team to beat by pre-season sport critics the strongest Bengal team
of many years ended its '34 grid season in sixth place.
Roosevelt vs. F remont-With the Green Wave reaching deep into the pock-
ets of the Roughriders at four different times the nothing to nothing final score
doesn't give a fair account of the game. The Bengals rolled up a lopsided total
of 228 yards to 50 for Roosevelt.
San Leandro vs. Fremont-This was a repetition of the Red fracas in all but
the score which gave the Bucs an 8-6 win. The eight points came in as many
minutes of the first quarter when Al Foster passed to Hazen Wallace for a score
and a Tiger fumble was pounced on in the end zone to raise the ante to eight.
After this it was all Fremont. A drive featuring Woodard and Meneweather
started from the Wave 40 and ended in the pirate end zone when Woodard
scored on an off-tackle slash from the three yard stripe.
McClymonds vs. Fremont-With the first string out at the closing seconds of
the first half, a Fremont pass was intercepted on the 40 by Thomas who scored
standing up. The Bengals twice reached deep into Warrior land, once meander-
ing to the eleven and again being stopped on the six. Figures gave Fremont 237
yards to 59 for the Mackmen.
Oakland vs. Fremont-A scoreless game between the two scoreless wonder
teams of the league was this. Each team threatened. Once the Acorns reached
the nine yard ribbon and the Berven men were stopped on the six.
University vs. Fremont-V-Starting off with a bang, the Bengals reached the
Cub two yard stripe in the opening minutes of the fracas after a 75 yard sus-
tained drive, only to lose the ball on a high pass from center which was bobbled
by Woodard. Later, Bill Beale, end for the Blue and Gold, recovered a Tiger
fumble on the Fremont six. Four drives at the line by Souza put the ball over.
He converted on a line buck giving the Cubs a 7-0 win.
Technical vs. Fremont-Believing that the'Bengals had gone stale, Coach
Berven ordered a cessation of practice for a week preceding the Tech battle.
Then Tech, the only team to beat Castlemont was routed by a l9-0 count. A
"Minnie"-to-Woodard pass accounted for the first score. Lloyd Hoffman and Al
Padel blocked lsola's punt which was scooped up by Bill Garetson who went
to the five, Bob Warren scoring on a buck. A short pass, Marshal to Woodard,
accounted for the last score. Marv Cummings dropkicked the nineteenth digit.
Castlemont vs. Fremont-The league champs, determined to reach a post-
season game with the winner of the San Francisco league, were not to be stopped
by the best offered by Fremont. Walt Mattos scored standing from the Tiger
twenty on a reverse in the first period. ln the last quarter a long pass was inter-
cepted by Mattos who romped seventy-five yards to the Fremont twenty. The
Green Wave held for downs, but a fumble and a penalty, added to an eight
yard romp by Anderson, paved the way for Mattos' second score and the ball
