T h P I c i a d c s Departments :: ART DEPARTMENT Over 150 students are enrolled in this department which offers courses in elementary drawing, advanced drawing, design, textile crafts, metal (copper and jewelry) crafts, and pottery. The craft courses, textiles, metals and pottery, give the student the opportunity to work out in actual material the theories he has learned previously in the elementary and design classes. The equip- ment for craft work is extensive, and includes a kiln, pottery wheels, and facilities for doing advanced work in copper, silver, and enamel. The art department sent an excellent exhibit of student work to Los Angeles to the conference of the Pacific Arts Association. This exhibit showed work of the classes in drawing, painting, design, and pen and ink, together with craft articles including jewelry, copper lanterns, boxes, and candlesticks. LIBRARY The library is the most beautiful and useful building on the campus. It is of the Spanish type of architecture with a wonderful paneled ceiling, patterned after the one in the University of Sala- manca. Spain. The circulation of the library has increased ten percent since last year, and the library now contains 10,400 volumes. This year the library has cooperated with the English depart- ments in the teaching of the use of books and libraries to the Fresh- men and Sophomores. A special course in Library technique has been offered and six students have Been enrolled. In this course one period is given to the teaching of library methods and rules, and one period is given to the use of the library as a laboratory. COMMERCIAL DEPARTMENT The commercial classes make up one of the most practical and important departments in the entire school. This department was founded with the purpose of training students for positions in the business world and that it has succeeded is shown in the fact that students have already proven their aptness and ability to hold positions after graduation. All the mimeographing of the school; all the papers and coi-res- pondence of the teachers; and many other things which furnish prac- tical experience, are handled by the two hundred and fifty students who arc being trained this year. PRINTING A new department has been organized this year, and about thirty students have received in.sti-uction in printing. The equipment is quite complete. It consists of both an Intci- type and a Linotype, cylinder press, two job presses, one with auto- m The Pic i a d c s matic feeder, metal saw, paper cutter, stitching machine, type, galleys and other machines necessary for printing of newspapers, books, job printing and light binding. All of the school ' s publications, such as the Weekly Pleiades, the annual, bulletins, Junior College Weekly Torch, the annual Torch, verse books for both institutions and many pieces of job work such as programs, advertising posters, etc. are used as projects for the printing classes, the journalism classes, English classes, advertising classes, etc. It is to their efforts and the instruction of Mr. Shepard that we owe the printing of our annuals this year. Much printing is thus obtained which could not be obtained by organizations in the school because of their financial inability to take it to outside shops. HOME ECONOMICS This has been a busy and prolitable year in the Home Economics Department. Classes have maintained a splendid attendance, and in- terest in work has been excellent. From freshmen to undergraduates, work has progressed steadily, and with good results. The high school clothing classes, popularly known as sewing classes, have covered a wide field of work, varying from the study of simple and more complex processes of construction, carried out in garment making, to the various perplexing problems of the judging of textile fabrics and wise buying of both materials and ready-made clothing. The construction problems have included the making of dresses, coats, hats and scarfs. This year 1,795 garments have been made in the department. At the end of each quarter, the students up to date with the requirements of the course have been permitted to design and to make one article on the new looms. The common cry has been: " When can I weave? " The cookery students have been busy this year, learning and pi-acticing the foundation principles underlying the makinig and serv- ing of foods. The study of nutrition, food requirements, and special diets, has been an important part of the work. As far as possible, the course is planned on a social basis. Units of work lead up to the serving of meals, and the carrying off of party events. When the girls serve meals, they pay for the cost and take the meal in each case, in place of their regular noon lunch. Throughout the year a study of etiquette is featured. Trips to the market, and special demonstrations by experts from the city, proved an enjoyable part of the work. The household management class spends the first semester in study of inethods of care of the house, systematic management, the selection of new equipment for the house, the distribution of family income, etc., while the last semester is given over to the study of house-planning, furnishing and decoration. The home-making class is planned partly for girls who have little or no home economics work, and who wish to learn something of its possibilities. The year ' s work is divided into shoil units, comprising T h L P I c i a d c s all the lines studied in other home economic classes, namely: cookery, sewinjj;, home nursing, child care, household management, millinery and social welfare. A regular part of the work of each student in the department is that of i-esidence work at the practice house. That place has been a busy and a happy one this year. The various activities are appor- tioned among the members of the family of girls, so that none are over-worked, and yet each one has practice in the various responsibili- ties of the home. Two special events of each week are always Wednes- day night, when mothers are entertained at dinner, and Thursday night, when the boy-friends of the girls are entertained for an hour or so during the evening. Ask the boys whether or not they have good times. One night, however, they got fooled, for the boy friends of the girls proved to be " girl-boy " friends, and quite outdid themselves in gallantry. The cottage has a record of 1,500 callers. Not only the high school and Junior College students enjoy the privilege of the department, but 218 mothers and other adults have been registered for regular class wo) ' k. SCIENCE The science department, with seven instructors, consists of two divisions: the natural and the physical sciences. The physical science comprises the study of physics and chemis- try. These high school courses have as their main objects the prep- aration of students for advanced study in college sciences. The study of physical sciences is very important and touches many things of in- terest, as all physical wants are based on these two sciences, and through the study of them one comes in closer contact with his sui ' - roundings. The natural science consists of four years ' work. In first year Biological work, the in:;tructor tries to acquaint the students with the general science laws without all the details. In the second year work, the students study the general laws governing life as a whole, show- ing the gi-eat similaiity in the way of both plants and animal life. Botany is offered for third year students. it is a technical study in .structure and life of plant., and of horticultui ' e. The senior year study consi.sts of a coui-se in human physiology. This is the most beneficial of all the courses as it deals with human interests. The natui-al science instructors strive to teach the students to appreciate things about him ._to see and to understand nature. CxYMNASIUM F. U. H. S. is very proud of their new gymnasium building. It is one of the largest and best equipped of any high school in Southern California. There are two main gym floors, each with a large gallery that has a seating capacity of 600. There is a corrective room with all corrective apparatus. There are also a beauitfully furnished G. A. A. room, the girls ' rest room, and the band room. The central control showers are used. r =? The Pleiades The students and faculty are most proud and glad of the new- swimming pool. It is 100 feet long, 40 feet wide, and eight feet, eight inches to three feet, eight inches deep. It is extremely clean and sani- tary, with a special drainage system. The formal opening of the gym was held in the fall. Representa- tives from some of the large colleges were sent to participate in the athletic demonstrations. On May 8, the students of the high school gave an athletic demonstration to the public. March 6, the school entertained over five hundred girls from all near by schools at the annual high school Play Day. MANUAL TRAINING The Manual Training Department is always a source of unfailing interest and offers many opportunities to the young men of the district. The department coisists of seven shops which might indicate its kinship to the Pleiades. The shops are so well equipped that the boys receive a thorough training that prepares them directly to do skilled work in the trades. The machine shop is equipped with 10 engine lathes, with both vertical and horizontal milling machines for type jobs; with a univer- sal grinder for hardened objects where accuracy of one- thousandth of an inch is required ; with drill press, shaper and many other machines and tools. The foundry boasts a cupola for melting iron and a furnace for melting bronze and aluminum that have been built by the boys in the school shops. Eight hundred pounds of iron can be melted and poured at one heat at the rate of approximately one hundred pounds in every four minutes. This is perhaps the most spectacular sight in the shops. In the forge shop ornamental wrought iron work is done, and also pi-actical work with the welding and cutting torch. The sheet metal shop is equipped to give practical training in the construction of useful projects built up from sheet stock and wrought :ron, with equipment also provided for electroplating with copper, nickle, zinc or silver. Few schools are better prepared to offer a course in practical auto repair than ours. All types of jobs are handled from that of trouble shooting to general overhauling. In the woodworking shops courses are offered in furniture mak- ing, wood turning, and boat construction. The boats being built com- prise a variety of types and include a 16-foot canoe, a 14-foot skiff, a 12-foot by .5-foot beam sail-boat, and a 30-foot cruiser. The draughting shop accommodates classes in mechanical draw- ing, machine and house planning, and Junior College classes in instru- mental drawing and descriptive geometry. Drawings, tracings and blue prints for shop projects are produced in this shop, and the last quarter the students study house-planning. Visits are made to build- ings under construction so that the understanding of the problems may be complete and the work more practical. i i It , ri o i_: «i I •C ■ ii.i. :.lc»J aL 24 4 SI aJi -«,«-- 1 1 1 h ' ' l i 1 1 -Jt£ T he PI c i a d ' 26 President Raymond Nace Vice-President Johnnie Dunn Secretary Nancy Hezmalhalcli Treasurer Gerald Boege You poor, forsaken, old diary! I have often wondered where I had hidden you away, and now that I have found you, deep down in the tool chest on dad ' s tractor, I feel that I must make up for the four long years that you remained in that greasy, dirty old place, all un- noticed. Let ' s see, perhaps in order to make this chronicle continuous, 1 had better fill in briefly those four years that have flown by unre- corded. Yes, flown by! They certainly have sped on wings of enchant- ment. Only ye.sterday, I was talking to some of my girl friends, and we all agreed that the happiest years of our young lives had been spent during the last four years. As Freshmen, we hardly held up the old saying that all Freshmen are green — at least, not in that sense. Perhaps we were green as tender young blades of grass, just opening into a lighter, happier world; or as some beautiful emerald glinting with hidden fires, but we certainly were not — dumb! I was very fortunate in being a member of an up-and-coming cla.ss which proved its worth in its second High School year, by furnishing leaders in all kinds of activities — Forensic, debating, foot- ball, tennis, operettas, as well as in scholarship. As Juniors we did something remarkable — we purchased Junior sweaters that certainly were keen. We gave the Seniors a wonderful reception in the foi-m of an old Southern dinner, and held up the i-est of our honors, too. As Seniors, we stalled out right at the beginning of the year by electing Raymond Nace class president. Our Senior pictures were all a great deal superior to any ever before shown by members of a grad- uating class — (in that we were better looking, of course) — and our rings were the envy of everyone not a 1926 Senior. Now, I wouldn ' t want anyone to get the opinion that we are egotistical, or anything of the sort, but Diary, if a class was as perfect as oui-s, isn ' t it all right to give it a few bouquets? Well, I have almost caught up with the present, and I promise never to forget you for so long again; but I don ' t think I ' ll ever have such happy things to write in you as I did during my high school days.

" Stan " ' ( y T he Pleiades CLASS POEM Hail to the orange and white class; Hail to the victory we ' ve won ; Hail to the spirit that ' s urged us On to the task that is done. Four are the years we have spent here, Learning the ways of men ; Dear is the friendship we ' ve found here. Strong as the power of pen. Deep is the debt we have made here We must prove worthy to pay. Pay it in full for the honor We love so dearly today. Guide us, oh spirit of honor, Over the rough and smooth, Give us the strength to forge onward Though we shall win or shall lose. Win, then we win with a fair game ; Lose, then we lose with a smile ; Play we will always a clean game No matter how hard is the trial. So hail to the orange and white class; Hail to the school we love best. God bless and protect her forever. The School that has stood every test. Edward Chan, ' 26. T li c P I c i (I d e s WILL xir?

T h 1 c P I c I (I a a s CLASS PROPHECY Time: 1946. Place : New York. BiT-ring ! Rr-ring ! Central, will you please huny my connection with Leona Jackson of Lansdowne, California. You say it isn ' t on the map? Say, it was twenty years ago, snap into it. 1 want to see her today, not next year. " Ah — there you are ; howdy. Sis ! " Well, for ever more, if it isn ' t you ; now let me see if you ' ve changed any. We wouldn ' t be able to see each other if it wasn ' t for this wonderful invention of Bob Cutter ' s, would we? " Oh, I ' m all right, but who are your ' phone operators down there? I had to wait at least two minutes before 1 could see you. " " To tell you the truth the office is managed by our old school friends. Louise Redfern is chief operator; however, she always has her head buried in a ' Whizz Bang ' or ' True Confessions, ' so she never pays attention to her work, but leaves it all to her assistants, you know, Fonda Roberts, Nellie Smith, Helen May, and Eunice Wolfe; even at that these girls are constantly bothered by their usual number of admirers. Oh yes, Dessie Smith is on the force, too, but she and Billy Fiscus have skipped the country for a few days. By the way, where did you get that Zulu hair-cut of yours? " " I acquired that while I was in the South Sea Islands. Claire Kibbe runs a beauty parlor there and her co-workers, Elsie Day and Faye Burr, finally convinced me this was what I needed. They do a wonderful lot of work trimming the monkey tails, too. " " That ' s right, you did make a tour ai ' ound the world — won ' t you tell me some of the interesting sights you saw ? But first do let me tell you about the big social function the population of Lansdowne witnessed yesterday! It was this way: after twenty years of romance Glen Boyles finally poi-suaded Winifred Goodwin to join him in the holy bonds of matrimony. Poor girl! Carrying Winifred ' s wedding ti-ain and caboose was Ruth Blackstone; for best man Glenn had chosen Benjamin Lupton, and presiding as pastor over the extravagant affair wa s, guess who? None other than Otto Brandle. There seemed to be a halo over his head; this surely proves he never had a square- head. The bridesmaids were some of the bride ' s school associates, Francis Monroe and May Flockton. But how did I manage to slip by the main feature of the wedding? It was the brass band, led by Price Walker, who looked very handsome in Mi-. Tozier ' s old band uniform which lent to the antiquity of the function. Chesley Woodward, the famous banjo-sti-ummer; Willie Ward, playing a golden hai-p, and Iris Koch, who was trying to handle a Jew ' s harp, made up the band. The combination was great ! But here I am rattling on when you have seen such wonderful sights. Start telling me of your tiip so I can tell the neighbors. " " You remember I began my trip in New York. Naturally the tirst sight I went to witness was the Zicgfeld Follies. The show was headed by Darrcl Arthur McGavran (he always did have a weakness for running things, especially girls). Anyway, Jean Grafton was star- ring. You know she always was good on figures. The famous beautv c: ' 51? r ii J C P I c i a d c s chorus was composed of Josephine Taylor, Minnie Ed ardson, and Christie Cxrimm. The three girls put on Parvo a ' s famous dance The Fawn " and vou should see the crowds it was drawing ! Rivaling that crowd was " the mob watching Charlotte Davis playing her electric piano ; she alwavs was talented in that line, you remember. Walking in and out the crowd was Lillian Woodward; she has changed her policy from breaking hearts to saving souls; her Salvation Army outht was most becoming to her. Aiding her in the work was Ellen Woolley and Rose Young and their most beneficial work was raising Gerald Rilea, the champion pugilist of the world, from the floor when he was down and out. " From there I hailed a taxi and was pleased to note it was Mur- ray Walker who sat behind the wheel. The traffic cop seemed to have a row with Murray because he was plowing down pedestrians faster than thev had ambulances to meet the demand. The two were still ciuarrelin " - v,-hen I stuck mv head out and noticed the cop was Kay Brawley After I informed him that Murray was driving me to the opera lie let him go as he said there always was a rush there. W hile we were tearing down Broadway my eyes were drawn to an enormous electric sign which blazed the names of Ruth Palmer and Newell Christenson starring in Marie Cornwell ' s famous love story ' Five Davs Fifty-Five Minutes. " This is rivaling Elinor Glynn s productions of ' Six Days. " I would like to have seen the performance but as I had already purchased bv opera ticket from Neil Sparks for the evening show, ' l had to hurry along. Finally I arrived at the opera house which is managed bv the Johnson and Johnson Company. Later 1 heard Mildred Johnson had consented to Florence Johnson ' s terms and so consolidated into one big company. Upon entering the mam- moth building I was ushered by the Snakey Egyptian Goddess, whom I recognized as Josephine Arroues. Imagine my surprise when I looked on the program and saw that Virginia Hurley was the holler- ing I mean, leading lady; she was supported by Merle Shride m May Chansler ' s world-wide opera " The Howling Three. " The third mem- ber of the cast was Ella McGraw. Because of a terrific gnashing of teeth behind me I could not hear all the lines, so I finally turned to see who it was causing the disturbance, and found myself looking into the bewildered face of Liez Young who was calmly eating fruit cake. Later I learned the poor child has been an addict to fruit cake for years- she is trying to extract the currants from it to start an elec- trical ' plant. Leaving the opera flat I returned to my hotel— the Gard- ner Sisters, Incorporated. Edna gave me my key and when I inquired about Margaret I was informed she was trying to get Marjorie Lucas out of her rooms because she would not pay her rent. Marjorie need- ed this experience in order to complete her Thousand Year Almanac. Seems as if Marjorie always had a tendency to be head of some an- nual affair. Because I slept on a tack all night I awoke with a pam which I quicklv relieved by applying Lauraine Raupe ' s ' Remedy for Pin Pricks and Tack Sticks. ' After this episode I decided to leave New York for Europe — by the way, what do you have for entertainment there in Lansdowne? " " Oh, this place is getting along famously with its many and varied attractions. If nothing special is going on one can always find T h PI c I (I a e s I = entertainment at one of Marjorie Brown ' s soap-box lectures on the anti-fire weed question. Her lectures are stated so emphatically that Ted Burton ' s Two-cent Stogie plant is almost bankrupt. The only reason why it isn ' t a complete failure is the fact that Lydia Hudspeth and Florence Phillips are cooperating with Ted and giving free per- formances of " The Smoke Veil Dance " in front of his factory. " Guess what, Sis, a ninety-six story building is being constructed by the ' Parker and Little Contractors ' — you remember Leslie and Leonard — for Carroll Gardiner ' s chemical plant. Carroll, as you know, has always been interested in the welfare of others so he has devised a formula of yeast and raisins to make deaf mice happy in their old age. These contractors became famous since they built the Boege and Merchant sound and shake-proof institute for Charleston addicts. " Another big social boost to Lansdowne is the Smith Chautauqua which had one night ' s performance here on its journey enroute from Buena Park to Fullerton. The company consists of Frank Smith, May Smith, Thelma Smith and Waldo Smith who were going to give the Cough Drop Brothers some real competition along the Smith line. The main attraction of the show was Patch French as a tight-rope walker — you know he ' s just the type to follow the straight and narrow path. However, George Schroeter drew just as much attention with his new device for chewing all of Wrigley ' s products without moving his jaws. Seems as though everyone stayed and ate from Emma Olsen ' s and Fred Osborne ' s hot dog stand. They certainly have an original way of serving the public. If you wish a Russian Hound, Spanish Airedale, or English Terrier sandwich you just whistle in its native tongue and in two minutes a most appetizing dog will be ready for you. For the evening ' s performances the mayor of Lansdowne with the mayor of Olinda who are none other than Audrey Middleton and John Reynolds respectively with the population of Lansdowne, went to the top of Reservoir Hill, a very romantic spot, to witness Pete Peterkin take off for his trip to the moon with one of his French-Kissed Beauties — that ' s the name of some fandangled contraption of his which he says can bring you there and back without any steering. You know, he never was meant to guide anything! Had you heard about that? " " Yes, I recall that, but I was telling you about my trip. I pur- chased mv tickets to Eui ' ope and was to sail on the new white liner " Shumaclier " at noon. Noon arrived as the town clock struck twelve and the big ship put out to sea. Acting as stewards in order to earn their pa.ssage to Paris and become opera singers were Miriam Pendle- ton, Margaret Jones and Frances Ipsen. About nine o ' clock in the evening I noticed a light out in the water and when I inquired of the captain what it was he turned a searchlight on it and I read a sign: ' Dorothy Hetebrink and Olive Tozier, Reliable Forest Rangers for the Atlantic Ocean, Experience in AiTowhead Regions. ' Greatly relieved I retired and after another day of tossing about the briny deep I ar- rived in England. The air was tense with excitement, and after pur- chasing an English paper from the greatest newsboy of England, alias William Orton, I read that Elizabeth Rothaermel was going to speak in the English Parliament. Aftoi- reading this I naturally left Eng- land, but 1 could not help noticing the darling candy shop of Marjorie Aubin Brown ' s. 1 purchased a box of English nuts after 1 had been T h PI C I (J d c s rsip informed by Dorothy Lewis the best in England. " Eats? Lansdowne is der, though, because under who is the candy tester, that they were of ers of the surrounding country ship in their products. ample Arthur dale who has the largest ranch for potatoes and earless corn. He ships his products in Hoag airless line. You remember how Dorothy and also famous for her markets. It ' s no won- the supervision of Jessie Dyche the farm- Take for ex- raising eyeless the Hunt and Olive always wanted things done quickly. Raymond Nace is now the proud owner of a poultry farm and at last he is getting a thorough understandmg of the chicken. A heated debate was being conducted at the fair last night on who should be awarded the medal for having the best pig. Harold Ross has had that honor nigh unto ten years now, but Walker Merrifield ' s pig won this time by just two ounces. That fair was certainly a brilliant affair. Why, even our old friend, Glen Launer, who you remember, always had a weakness for water, was awarded the cyanide biscuit for his display of water melons. But please do continue your intere.sting march of events. " " Well, let me see — oh yes, I was in England. Before I left for Paris, I witnessed the take off for the Champion English Channel Swimmer for Women. The contestants were American and English girls. Alida Swenson represented the United States and I heard bet- ting was 3 to 1 in her favor. I arrived in Paris in time to be present at the auto race at Champ De EUyse. While strolling around I acci- dentally met Mr. and Mrs. Bliss Worth ; Mrs. Worth in former years was Ila Danielly. The two are now running an orange punch stand which is a very ' progressive business. They introduced me to Johnnie Dunn, Philip Allen and Jimmie Hawkins. These three fellows were posing as bogus counts and were certainly making a hit with the European society. " Flip " seemed to be peering over his shoulder all the time and finally he asked me if I had seen Mr. Douglas anywhere. When I told him I had seen Mr. Douglas in the Casino at a roulette wheel, betting heavily, he seemed relieved. My attention was then attracted to the racing. Competing for honors of the day were Stanley Smith with a one-wheeled tricycle, Rankin Bailey scooting a scooter, and Ed. Zuckerman pumping an air pump. The record for former years was held by Frank Marshburn. Strolling the grounds on the arms of a wealthy count I saw Eloise Taylor displaying startling Parisian gowns designed by the famous French creator, Mary Rothaer- mel, who has her exclusive shops in the slums of Paris. " Well, Sis, the high school is still here and running perfectly under the watchful eye of Sonny Hardison who is the dignified princi- pal of the institution. But do you know who ' s filling the much-sought- for position of Mr. Douglas? No, you ' ll never guess, for it ' s none other than Louis Rohrer. Rita Redelberger is Dean of the Girls, and you ' d be surprised how quickly they obey her slightest wish — they have all discarded their rouge boxes and can ' t see why someone didn ' t tell them to do it before. Let me think ; oh yes, Seward Wetton has followed in the footsteps of Mr. Redfern and now teaches his beloved subject of Civics to the seniors of the school. 1 almost forgot about the new chemistry magnate of the old institution. It seems as though she has perfected a gas that will give you all the knowledge of any T h r I I d d C S Why Dorothy Schweitzer, of anyway! Let me see, what i subject you desire to learn. Who is it ? course, she never was much for studies else — oh yes, Sis, can we ever forget Yorba Linda Lalce ? Well Harri- son Giddings and Zelta Nay are skippers of the ferry that operates to the east and west mainlands, and, do you know, it ' s rumored that after all these years they ' re just discovoi ' ing the influence of moon- shine. " I ' m just about out of news — wait until I find tomorrow ' s paper. How can they print it so quickly? Why Charles Shepard is the editor and it ' s been a great success because of Cecil Randall ' s editorials. Here ' s a front page adv. I ' ll bet Norton Skinner, the advertising manager, is glad to see that! It ' s advertising George Will ' s sculptor products. He had such a good eye for lines! Now here ' s the scandal sheet; it ' s just atrocious the way things are predicted around here. Everyone knows a week before hand if anything is going to happen, but with Vera Kenniston as head of that department it seems quite probable. Now here ' s an article about the Morgan Rodeo which is to feature Jean Kinsman, Helen Henigan and Ada Dee Shamlin as the dare-devil horseback riders. It ' s no wonder, though, ' cause even in the days of twenty-six it was impossible to keep Lyla, Jean, Helen or Ada, off the horses in our gym. But, Sis, I ' ve been rattling on for nearly a hour — do tell me more of your trip. My next stop of importance was in Cairo, Egypt. And this is what I gazed upon! Riding a fiery steed, himself swathed in flawing black robes, beneath an enormous beard, I managed to recognize the features of Arthur Ki ' oeger! Upon asking a fair Egyptian maiden who was standing near by, 1 was told that he was ' the meanest sheik around ' and po. sessed more women in his harem that did Sheik Abdul Ralph Renisson who had to date twenty-seven ! The native informed me that some of the now so-called shebas were Janet Thompson, the would-be favorite, Leota Haines and Grace Poiser, and his favorite dancers were Ernestine Coleman and Evelyn Woods. Jealousy was always rampant in each of the sheik ' s hangouts. Believe me, 1 decided to leave that vicinity ' pronto ' but could not help noticing a crowd of natives huddled in fi-ont of a tent. Upon closer inspection 1 noticed a snake charmer fascinating the reptiles with her eyes and dimples. Imagine my horror when 1 found the snakes obeying the voice of Genevieve Wents! 1 traveled on. Finally, 1 came upon the Great Sphinx. My good guide, George Muhic, steered my camel, for which I never found it necessary to walk a mile, over to the great stone face of the Sphinx. Standing in front of it was a couple. Guess who they were. None other than Doris Tcnnant, who was trying to pick an argument with the Sphinx concerning ' Is Silence Golden. ' You remem- ber what a quiet girl she has always been. Beside her was Jimmie Henderson. His pleas to continue their world tour to demonstrate an eggless egg beater, were falling on Doris ' deaf eaivs. 1 watched this interesting couple for three hours, but as I saw no lessening in Doris ' speech to the silent observer, I traveled along. On my way to Japan I passed the Isles of Cicily. Yes, the sii-ens were still there, driving men out of the good path. I guessed who these mermaids were, but to be positive I asked the captain who said they were the most bewitching singers ever, and were Rosetta Dorsey, 3 c SI? T h 1 c PI c ! a a c s I Ardeth Wagner and Clara Sarles. Arriving in Tokio 1 witnessed a terrible uprising — no, not an earthquake. After an hour of almost fruitless sign language with several natives 1 was convinced that the trouble was over the Jap ' s pigtails. Now, these are sold at times to be used for the manufacturing of hair nets, but because the mission- aries, Margaret Yorba, Dorothy Farrand, Elvira Raggio, and Rosalie Hartman, have finally succumbed to the barber ' s shears the hair net business is going out. I stayed in Japan a while and was glad I did so because during one of my walks I encountered Jack Davies teaching a dancing class. Ilis most promising pupil was a monkey that John was trying to educate in the ' flea-hop ' ; another of his students was Robert Thomas. When I took a tour into the opium dens of China, I saw Viola Behrent and Sylvia Reed busily getting the dope on dope addicts for the United States government, and also teaching the addicts the ' St. Louis Shuffle. ' Another interesting episode to which I was an eye witness was the thrilling chase of Walter Beck and Louis Dyche with some rum runners. These two fellows have devoted their life to find- ing out the abode of the ' rum-runner ' s daughter ' and also ' who takes care of her. ' " 0-w-w ! What is that noise ? Wait a minute. Sis, until I take a look. Oh, it was so exciting! To begin with, there was John Lucas, our county officer, puffin ' and pumpin ' his one-wheel bicycle. He was chasing Charlesa Thompson for running away with a diamond investor — and vou know she ' s not of age! Well, Florence Turner and all her flock of little Turners about started a riot trying to break through the Cullen crowd who was also watching Charlesa, but William wouldn ' t give in, so John lost interest in the Diamond Diggers and escorted the Cullen family to jail. Yes, Vera was right there with her note-book, but she had it all written before it commenced. " Say Sis, I just read in one of Alaska ' s news pamphlets that Dot Bielefeldt, Nancy Hezmalhalch, and Hazel King were developing a vast trade with the Eskimos by swapping Charleston records for Eskimo Pies. I also read in a Russian bulletin that Howard Reed was starting an uprising among the Bolsheviks by demonstrating that by discarding their beards they could be wonderful collar advertisers. Because of this Pete Tarchione ' s razor business has such a boom that the fellow is now living a very smooth and prosperous life. " For local news, though, how do you like this: Thelma Lakeman is president of our local cleaners. You know, she always was getting her skirt pressed — yes, she has men helping her this time too! In fact, Merton Canfield, Clarence Campbell, and Ed. Chan are the best skirt pleaters in the county. " Before I forget. Sis, did you see the plympic meet? Pve read so much about our old classmates ' activities! " " Of course I d id! " " I ' ll never forget what wonderful athletes Fullerton has always put out. Nevertheless, I was somewhat shocked at the Olympic Cxames. This is whv: our own fair Lillian Bastady was competing with other national champions in the broad jump. Mildred Bissitt and Ruby Sarles were representing the United States in the relay race, although Juanita Mondotte, their efficient trainer, says that if they do not cease T h r I 1 {I d c s consuminji: such large quantities of French pastry they will be dis- qualified for excessive weight. " Where did 1 go next? How thoughtless of me. As if 1 could slip by the Fiji Isles. I saw some friends there, too. Willard Wilson was a live model for advertising the Johnson and Allec famous hair sham- poo ' Loves Ruffness. ' " T ' is rumored that Myron and Ann lived through some thrilling experiences during the manufacture of this hair tonic. Willard is making a hit with all the Fiji men but the Woozy, Hula Fiji girls, who are none other than Winifred Pendleton, Lillian Neighbors and Mable Sexton insist his method of demonstration is too tame. Of much in- terest to the inhabitants of the islands is the new aquarium which contains some of the world ' s biggest freaks of nature. The proud possessor of this is Katherine Littleton. People who have spent many days and nights in acquiring freaks for the aquarium are Jessie Scrib- ner and Helen Page. Strange to say, among the many odd fish I did not see any familiar faculty faces. By the way, Lila Borden has just finished her advertising campaign for ' Borden ' s Home of Contented Cows. ' Another place of interest was the new tangerine ranch. A large orchard is now producing wonderful tangerines under the per- sonal supervision of Clarence Dauser. A very odd thing about it is the sign over the entrance which says ' Open Nights To Alumni of F. U. H. S. ' , . . , " Naturally after 1 had heard so much of the coco-nuts on this isle I could not help touring it in order to satisfy my curiosity. While I was in the jungles I heard a silvery-like voice which I immediately attached to Geraldine Rockwell. She was calling all the monkeys from the trees into a cage. When 1 asked her why she referred me to Margaret Dean and Lucille Reed. Now as I recall, Peg and Lucille have always been ' nut-fiends, ' mostly peanuts, but because of then- ravenous desire for them they planned to sell salted cocoanuts at 5c a bag. They employed the monkeys to gather in the cocoanuts which were salted down and sent by the Hilgenfeld-Warfield air line to the F. U. H. S. candy counter. Melvin and Lloyd are doing wonderful business because of the competition afforded by Lois Everett and Audrey Middelton who operate a galloping caterpillar in order to deliver the nuts to inmates of Norwalk. " Toot-Toot! All aboard! Streets 21-L5-18-26. " " For ci-ying out loud! What is that terrible noise? " " Oh that ' s just the conductor of the New York Unlimited. Re- member Buddy Forster, and how good he was in calling numbers for our glorious football team? Well, because he has such lung power he won over 5,000 contestants and acquired the position of the conductor! So sorry I have to go now. Sis — I only wish 1 could stay and talk awhile. " " Well, ril call you up again in a few days. 1 know I have not told you all the news but 1 can ' t remember any more just now. Good love to Billy when you see him. — What ' s that? my you a I bye, kid, give " Hey central, my connection was cut off! What? She hung up!

There was no going backwards so we decided to make a strong effort to go forward. The Sophomores looked on us scornfully, the Juniors sympatheti- cally, and the Seniors didn ' t look at all, they were so dignified. But nevertheless we took our place in all school activities and made a proud showing. We behaved quite well as scrubs and as the yeai- drew to a close we added the other phrase " We saw, " for by this time we were a permanent fixture on the campus. We came back in the fall, full fledged Sophomores, and pro- ceeded in turn to treat the scrubs as we saw fit. We won the baseball championship of the school, and the girls deserve praise for their victories in baseball and basketball. Our record for scholarship was a good one throughout the year. And now we are Juniors and still going strong in all school activi- ties; the girls winning in baseball, basketball, and hockey, and the boys winning in baseball. The Junior party was an event which will ever remain a happy memory to us all. Although we have one more year, I believe by this time we can say, " We came, we saw, we con- quered.

What would F. U. H. S. do if it were not for the Sophomore class? We entered the school last year as Freshmen, full of pep and ready to go. We got a good start and this year as Sophomores are still going strong. The upper classmen should be proud of their younger fellow students who are sharing in the school activities. Both of the student body yell leaders are members of the Sopho- more class, and the Class of ' 28 had representatives on the " A " and " B " football teams, while the " C " team was made up largely of Sophomores. Look at our football captain for the coming year. He is also from this " up and coming " class. Basketball and track have been popular sporis too, among boys of the Class of ' 28 during their first and second year of high school life. But the Sophomore girls must not be forgotten. We hardly know what would become of girls ' athletics if it were not for the Cla.ss of ' 28. Last year as well as this year the Sophomore class has been rep- resented by girls on first teams in basketball, hockey, and baseball. So we are doing our part in athletics for the honor of F. U. H. S. In the meantime, we are not forgetting our studies. Among the members of the Pleiad Society are many " wise fools.

' cl?r == ARTHUR KROEGER GEORGE FORSTER NANCY FLOYD HEZMALHALCH HATFIELD EXECUTIVE BOARD Student self-government has passed many milestones in its exis- tence in Fullerton Union High School. This form of government has worked for a number of years, and each year grows stronger as the responsibility increases. It is a wonderful thing, when we stop to think about it, to be able to say that our school is run by the students for the students. Student self-government is carried on by two boards: the Execu- tive Board and the Board of Control. The former is composed of seven elected officers, two financial advisors and our principal, Mr. Plummer. It transacts all business for the entire Student Body and passes on all financial affairs. Although this year the board has been handicapped because of the lack of funds, it has endeavored to clear the debt left it and still do that which is beneficial to the Student Body. ' , ' W yy J lONE WAGNER DORIS TENNANT MARION FRENCH —-3 The Student Board of Control is the disciplinary board ; it is com- posed of four elected members, the Student Body president and about forty deputies. In the past years it has been necessary, because of the nature of some of the cases, to have separate boys ' and girls ' boards. This group of workers has not been exactly successful at times be- cause they, and even the students, have not upheld the purpose of the Board of Control which should be to assist and help offenders rather than judge severely and serve penalties. But in spite of its mistakes, the board has lightened the duties of the faculty, and it is well rewarded if in any way throughout the year it has helped to promote " clean speech, clean scholarship and clean living " in the school and out of it. The appointed members for the Girls ' Board are: Lydia Huds- peth, chairman ; Dorothy Schweitzer, Jean Kinsman, Helen May, Rita Knight, 11a Crowe, Margaret Riffle, Elsie Bieger, Vera Stull, Marcel- lina Arroues, Laura Johnson, Shirley Shipe, Cornelia Randall. The Boys ' Board consists of: Kenneth Gardiner, Geo. C. Forster, Merton Canfield, Melvin Curtis, Don Parker, Robert Hezmalhalch, Vincent Dauser, Warren Bloomer, Clarence Campbell, Willard Hersh- berger, Irviii Long. rs3= MARJORIE BROWNE JOSEPHINE ARROUES HAZEL KING LOUISE REDFERN THE GIRLS ' LEAGUE The League ' s activities started at the very beginning of school with a reception for the new girls. The freshmen were made ac- quainted with the school and helped to become more friendly with, each other. The League ' s ambition has always been to have a room furnished for its needs. At last we have one ! We have been given a room and with the money made from the play the League sponsored we have furnished it. Although our mothers know they are always welcome, we made two special attempts to get them together. The Mother and Daughter Banquet was a great success as was Mother ' s Day. Our welfare work is getting broader and broader, as we have un- dertaken to help the other leagues of Orange County to contribute to the Trabuca Canyon Camp for tubercular boys as well as giving Christmas programs for the Mexicans of our own districts. Girls, Miss Kast said we were one of the peppiest leagues she has ever known ! May we always live up to her praise. UNIFORM DRESS The close of this term will end the second year that the girls of this school have worn uniforms. The uniform is the same for this year as it was for the last. In order to make this practice a success there is a uniform dress board consisting of thirty-two members. Four each day act as a committee to which the girls without the correct uniform may go. These four work for a week, and then another group takes their place. In this way a hardship is not worked on any one girl. At the beginning of the second semester, a new plan was adopt- ed, the honor system. By this system every girl who is out of uniform appears of her own accord before the uniform dre.ss board and states her reason. This method not only makes the checking of each offender easier, but puts the students on their honor. The girls have co-operat- ed wonderfully well, and this system has been a great success; we hope that it will be just as successful next year. CABIN Kl ' UNIFORM DRESS BOARD f zp THE PLEIAD SOCIETY Everyone knows what the Pleiad Society is, and whenever you see anyone wearing one of those cute bronze or silver pins, you know that he is one of the privileged persons who belongs to it. And say, don ' t we have good times? Whenever we want to have a ditch day or to take a trip, we can get excused for a whole day without any make-up work. Why? Because we ' re such good stud- ents — that is, we ' re supposed to be — that Miss Rumsey and Mr. Pted- fern feel that we are entitled to a day off once in awhile. And wasn ' t that some initiation we gave the scrubs? I ' ll bet they think of it every time the word " Pleiad " is mentioned. Everyone came dressed in their oldest and most outlandish clothes because it was a hard-time party. Anyone who thinks we are staid and digni- fied would certainly have had their opinion knocked into a cocked hat if they had been at that party. At this writing, we haven ' t had our ditch day, but we ' re certainly going to have one, and we ' re certainly all going to have oodles and oodles of fun. Virginia Record. 31 ALCYONIANS President Doris Tennant Vice-President Louise Redfern Secretary-Treasurer Marjorie Lucas The dream of every student in hish school is that, in his j raduat- iny year, he may have the inestimable honor of being chosen one of the few that compose the Alcyonian Society for that year. The society is a branch of the National Honor Society, deriving its name in the local chapter from " Alcyone " , supposed to be the eldest and wisest of the " Seven Sisters " composing the Pleiad group. Thirteen members of this year ' s senior class were chosen by a committee composed of faculty members, on the basis of character, leadership, scholarship and service. The students so honored this year are: Doris Tennant, Louise Redfern, Marjorie Lucas, Ernestine Coleman, Eunice Wolfe, Doi-othy Schweitzer, Raymond Nace, Arthur Kroeger, Harrison Giddings, Melvin Hilgenfeld, Minnie Edwardson, Marjorie Browne and Ruth Palmer. Ly e3 P HI- Y President Don Parker Vice-President Floyd Hatfield Secretary Merton Canfield Treasurer Gerald Rilea The Fullerton Hi-Y Club has completed its sixth and most success- ful year. Under the leadership of A. J. Raitt, meetings are held every other Monday nights for our " feed, " and to discuss our prob- lems. Every Tuesday morning at seven forty-live, the intercircle meets in the club room to discuss all problems of the club and school that we can help solve. Out of our thirty members eleven are leaders of younger boys ' clubs, called Friendly Indians and Pioneers. Our purpose is " To create, maintain, and to extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian Character. " The slogan of the club is, " Clean Speech, Clean Sports, Clean Scholar- ship, and Clean Life. " The underlying principle is " Others. " Beside our regular work we took charge of the evening services of some of the churches. Along with our regular meetings we featured a Waffle Breakfast, Father and Son Banquet, Older Boys ' Conference, Football Banq uet, Mother and Son Banquet, Hi-Y and Tri-Y Banciuet, College Night and Ladies ' Night. Merton Canfield, ' 26. S iiift ««. ' : -SSSZZIiaS5! TRI - Y President - Minnie Echvardson Vice-President Winifred Goodwin Secretary Ernestine Coleman Treasurer Dorothy Bielefeldt The Ti-i-Y is composed ot a group of Senior girls who have organized for the purpose of creating, maintaining, and extending throughout the school and community high standards of Christian character. With this object in view, they have tried to do many worth- while things in the community. The outstanding social events of the year have been a banquet given for the Hi-Y boys, a St. Patrick ' s Father and Daughter Banquet, a High Tea for our mothers, and two week-end trips at the beach. The success of the club this year is largely due to the work of our adviser. Miss Ehlen, and to the competent leadership of our President, Minnie Edwardson. Ernestine Coleman. VARSITY CLUB Although the Varsity Club has been slow in organizing this year, it has brought about a closer relationship among the fellows of the vai ' ious school athletics. The ideal of this club is to create stronger sportsmanship, and judging by the caliber of the F. U. H. S. athletics, the ideal has been fulfilled. The purpose of the Varsity Club is to bring together all the men who have earned varsity letters in any sport and get them acquainted with one another. It is true that one man cannot participate in every athletic contest, and give each the required attention. In order to at- tain the highest standard of athletics in our school it is essential that all of the advisors and participants of the various sports organize into one group and cooperate by forming their various ideas into one set of merited rules. The Varsity Club is a big benefit to school athletics, and its standards should be upheld by not only the members, but also by the student body as well. Johnnie Dunn. z;i BIG " F " President Josephine Arroues Vice-President Dorothy Bielefeldt Treasurer lone Wagner Secretary Dorothy Hetebrink The society has had a glorious and successful season this tei ' ni, for two initiations were held during the year. The first, which was held in the early fall, brought Anna McCormick into the society. The second initiation was held in April. This brought in five peppy girls: Al King, Marcy Arroues, Vera Studebakcr, Ruth Palmer and Lucille Brawley. The aim of the society is to promote clean sportsmanship among the girls. Due to the fact that 800 points are necessary for member- ship to the Big " F, " this club is very esteemed among the athletic girls. It is the hope of every girl interested in athletics to become a member of the society. rs:? DEBATING The past year may be justifiably regarded as the most successful one in the annals of the debating department of our high school. This is said, not in a spirit of boastfulness, but as a verifiable fact. It is true not so much from a standpoint of the number of debates won, but upon the basis of what has been accomplished with a small amount of available material. Tribute should be paid to Mr. DeVries, whose ex- cellent coaching has made possible the debating work of the year. Three series of debates were held between the members of the County Debating League at different times during the year. Unfortu- nately, the coveted cup was not won by us, but we ran a very close second to Anaheim. The subjects debated during the year were: Capital Punishment, American Adherence to the World Coui ' t, and Prohibition of the Further Issue of Tax-exempt Government Bonds. In addition to the regular league debates we went outside the county and secured exhibition debates with Long Beach, Montebello, Excelsior, and Compton. About an equal number of these were lost and won. The students composing the first varsity teams were : Marion Trowbridge, Annie Peterson, Raymond Nace, Dorothy Schweitzer and Esther Boice. Other non-varsity debaters were : Lydia Hudspeth, Walker Merrifield and Lucille Brawley. Raymond Nace. FORENSIC The annual Orange County Forensic Contest is being held at Fullerton this year, and we are lucky in having four able representa- tives. Raymond Nace upholds the honor of the Senior class with an im- promptu speech. Cathei ' ine Crist delivers an original essay entitled, " Voices That Appeal to Me. " The sophomores are represented by Alice Wales, speaking on the subject, " An Ideal American, " while Shirley Shipe comes from the freshman class to read a literary selection. Forensic work is not greatly -sti-esscd in Fullerton at the present time. However, in the future, the English department intends to pay more attention to the work, for there is nothing which brings out hid- den talent so much as public speaking. The Annual goes to the press too early to make the results of the contest known but we are sure that our entrants will make an excel- lent showing.

Every year they give to the graduating class a banquet and dance and formally accept them as F. U. H. S. alumni. The officers of the association this year are : President, Ted Corcoran ; 1st Vice-President, Audrey Reeve ; 2nd Vice-President, Fred Fuller; Secretary and Treasurer, Mrs. George Osborne. nil I ■Q I O , 1 1 ' - d i r p L I The two publications of the High School are the Weekly " Pleiades " and Annual " Pleiades. " The students who enroll in the Journalism class edit the Weekly, while the Annual is compiled by an appointed staff. Mr. F. R. Shepard, faculty advisor for both publica- tions, has worked hard and successfully for a good paper and Year Book. The students have cooperated very well, and the year has been a successful one. On behalf of the Annual Staff, we wish to express our apprecia- tion for the excellent service we have received fi-om Bryan-Bi-anden- burg Co., especially for the personal services of Mr. Hooper of the School Annual Department. The senior picture woi ' k was efficiently done by Hartsook ' s, while the covers were taken care of by the Webei--McCrae Co. under dii ' ec- tion of Mr. Babcock. Miss Hinkle and Mr. Shepard, as well as Mr. DeVries, of oui- own faculty, deserve a hearty note of thanks for the help they have given us in the art work, general information and commercial assistance. The staff as a whole has cari-ied on well, and the work left over by a few slackers was promptly taken care of by other members. The personnels of both our Annual staff and of our Journalism classes have been well above the average of ability, and willingness to serve the school. Our editor-in-chief has toiled early and late to make this An- nual the best yet. The publications of this school reflect the student life and opinions more distinctly than those of most schools. The Weekly Pleiades has planned several special numbers, and some special ideas were carried out very well, as for instance our Thanksgiving, Christmas and April First and class numbers. The Verse Book is a good beginning for a student literary maga- zine. -Dons ienndrvl Mdr ' Roibder-. hr . « • Joseffane -Arnve . I ' - Margfaret : ri 5 M ' [,dv.

The activi- ties of the department are divided as follows: Girls ' and Boys ' Glee Clubs under the direction of Miss Wishard, tiie orcliesti-a under the leadership of Mr. Walberg, and the band with Mr. Tozier as its leader. In the Annual County Music Contest which was held in Fuller- ton on May 5, the musical enti ' ies of Fullerton ranked very high. The Boys ' Glee Club won first, the Girls ' Glee won second, the band second, and the orchestra third in theii- respective divisions. The Band and Boys ' Glee are entered in the finals of the Southern Cali- fornia Music Contest, but the Annual goes to press to early to get the results, although they are expected to rank veiy high in their divisions.

Mr. Tozier has worked hard and successfully in obtaining such an excellent band as this because in 1922 the organization had only twenty-two members. Like the rest of the musical organizations of the school, they have been ready to play at any time for the school and community. Due to the able leadership of Mr. Walberg, the F. U. H. S.

The orchestra has always been ready when it was wanted. Sometimes, small groups were called upon to represent the orchestra at different places where adequate space could not be available for the ensemble, while sometimes a solo- ist from the orchestra was called upon to contribute numbers. Unusual talent was shown by certain members of the orchestra. The Glee Clubs are both large and contain some very good singers. They have entertained in assemblies during the year, have been in community programs, and have broadcasted successfully over the radio, always doing excellent work. Such work could not have been accomplished had it not been for the wonderful leadership of Miss Wishard. The F. U. H. S. Boys ' Quartet should be mentioned here, as their exceptional work will never be forgotten. They sang at various times, always a delight to their audience. Our musical de- partment was honored when our Boys ' Glee Club was chosen as the only Boys ' Club to sing at the Annual State Federation of Music meet- ing held at Santa Monica.

F. U. H. S. QUARTETTE Arthur Hardison George Forster Billie Swain Billic Fiscus BOYS ' GLEE QUARTET rsr? THE PIRATE ' S DAUGHTER " The Pirate ' s Daughter, " given by the boys ' and girls ' glee clubs, was ju-esented on the evenings of February the nineteenth and twen- tieth. As this was a three-act musical comedy, the audience was kept in a spell of delightful music and humor. Directed by Miss Wishard, the opera made a most favorable impression, and very highly compli- mentary remarks were heard, not only for the offering as a whole, but for the splendid character portrayal. Adding greatly to the individual interest were the special choruses and dancers. A group of our F. U. H. S. orchestra accompanied the singers as well as rendered many pleasing numbers between acts. The opera is based on a legend of old Holland, and begins at a house party of Mr. and Mrs. Van Der Meer on the Hudson. A necro- mancer from India is engaged by the hostess to put all the guests to sleep at one time. As the guests wish to dream themselves back in Holland three hundred years before, the necromancer casts a spell over the entire group. The second act opens with the group transferred to Leydenkirk, Holland, in the year of one thousand .sixteen hundred and twenty-four. The first scene is on the birthday celebration in honor of the Burgo- master. One of the sailors warns the Burgomaster that a pirate ship T h c P I c I n e s which is believed to be commanded by the notorious Captain La Rue, is anchored in the harbor. Peter and the Burgomaster plan a trap for the pirates while Wilberg, the Burgomaster ' s secretary, and Jacque- line, a young girl who had been found on the beach by the Burgo- master, assist the pirates, who succeed in breaking into the Burgo- master ' s home and in stealing a chest which they believe has gold in it. They also take the Burgomaster ' s family as prisoners. In the second scene, the pirates are seen in their rendezvous opening the chest, but who should appear out of the chest but the Burgomaster. The police arrive just in time to overcome the pirates. Jacqueline is discovered to be the pirate ' s daughter. The pirates are allowed to go free if they will leave never to set foot on Dutch soil again. The necromancer removes the spell and the characters are all seen as their true selves. The cast was as follows: Mrs. Schuyler, a gossip vender Lyla Morgan Mrs. Van der Meer, mother of Elsie Corinne Busch Elsie, in love with Peter Marjorie Browne Wilberg, a slippery secretary Murray Walker Peter, prefect of police James Stephens Jacqueline, pirate ' s daughter Marquita Salveson Mr. La Rue, pirate chief Charles Thompson Hans and Katrinka, a dutchy pair.. ..Seward Wetton and Mabel Evans Mahmat Singh, necromancer Ned Fahs Schmidt, a sailor Carroll Gardiner Mr. Van der Meer, burgomaster Bill Fiscus Mate, Dub, Gub, three bold, bad pirates Bob Williams, Harold Anderson and Glen Launer Mitje, Fritje, Guelthen, three village maidens Elsie Berger, Ethylene Grainger, Josephine Arroues 121 T h Pleiad e s " Seven to One " Jo Dorothy Bielefeldt Madge Josephine Arroues Barbara Viola Behrent Gloria Josephine Taylor Ginger Janet Thompson Vivian Lyla Mae Morgan Dulcie - Marjorie Browne Elizabeth Vera Keniston " The Charm School " Austin Bevans Raymond Nace David MacKenzie Murray Walker George Boyd Billie Swain Jim Simpkins Marion Erwin Tim Simpkins Maxwell Erwin Homer Johns Darrel McGavran Elsie Bendotti Ernestine Coleman Miss Hays Minnie Edwardson Miss Curtis Sylvia Reed Sally Boyd Viola Jackson Muriel Doughty Dorothy Hetebrink Ethel Spilvin Josephine Taylor Alin Mercier Olive Tozier Lillian Strafford Lyla Mae Morgan Madge Kent Janet Thompson Dotsie Jean Kinsman " The Twins of Bergamo " Nerine Olive Tozier Rosette Dorothy Hetebrink Arlequin Philip Allen Young Arlequin Robert Cutter " Songs of Pierrot " Pierrette Eloise Taylor Pierrot Robert Cutter The Image Man Darrel McGavran Mr. Berger Raymond Nace Mrs. Berger Katherine Littleton Cissy Berger Jean Kinsman Mrs. Fordyce Bernadine Darnell Mrs. Curtis Mildred Bissitt Mrs. Mills.. ...Helen Henigan " Mother Carey ' s Chickens " Ossian Popham Darrel McGavran Gilbert Carey John Dunn Nancy Carey Jean Kinsman Mother Carey Leona Jackson Kathleen Olive Tozier Cousin .Ann Chadwick....

This is the first time the fathers have been so exclusively entertained by the girls, and they have all well earned the good time that they had. Throughout the meal (which was cooked and prepared by the Tri-Y) peppy music furnished by the Girls ' League orchestra lent a happy atmosphere to the affair. After dinner several talks were given by the girls: " Me and My Dad, " by Ernestine Coleman, and " The Aims and Ideals of the Tri-Y " by Helen Henigan. ' As the evening could not be complete without a word from our fathers, Mr. Goodwin was called on. He delivered an uplifting mes- sage on " High Inspirations. " PLAY DAY It would be quite impossible to give all the details of Play Day in a limited space. But, to make a long story short, Play Day was a huge success. It started with one of the most spectacular parades ever witnessed in Fullerton. Girls from all the represented schools marched in fours around the athletic field led by the F. U. H. S. girls carrying our red and white banner. The groups then broke up and the remainder of the morning was spent at diflferent sports: hockey, volley ball, basket ball, archery, and tennis. At noon, a good dinner was served the girls in the cafeteria, during which music was provided by the Girls ' League orchestra. After lunch, the girls gathered in the gym where each school enter- tained the rest of the schools with clever stunts. Tennis and swim- ming provided entertainment for onlookers in the afternoon, at the close of which tired, but happy girls started homeward. THE JUNIOR PARTY n Heretofore it has been the custom for the juniors to give the seniors a reception near the close of the year. Because of the expense and time this involved, it was forbidden this year. So on February the thirteenth, the juniors held a party by themselves for themselves. The evening started with a grand parade which ended in a wild scramble for the tables. Between courses an interesting program was given, consisting of musical numbers, dancing and apparatus stunts. After dinner, most of the juniors motored to Naples and enjoyed the rest of the evening skating. T h PI c 1 a d e s ' HI-Y FATHER ' S AND SON ' S BANQUET On November the ninth, about forty of the fathers and sons gathered at McFarland ' s Cafe for the annual Hi-Y Father and Son Banquet. Besides enjoying the comradeship of mei ' ely being there, the Hi-Y " Dads " enjoyed a good three-course dinner and an interest- ing program. During the meal, selections were rendered by the Hi-Y orchestra. Arthur Kroeger extended a hearty welcome to the " Dads " and Mr. Jack Gardiner an equally hearty response to the sons. After an inspiring talk by Assemblyman Hartranft, an induction ceremony took place in which three new members were taken in. Donald Parker was presiding officer over the successful evening. G. A. A. BANQUET On January 27, 1926, all girls who had earned over fifty athletic points held a pot-luck dinner in the gym. Each girl grabbed a red and white balloon and lined up for the grand march. Original place cards with clever little verses fitting each girl ' s character were arranged. After each had found her place, it was announced that those girls with dimples and long hair had to serve. lone Wagner, president of the G. A. A., announced that all girls wearing boy ' s rings had to give a Charleston exhibition, and after a vain attempt on the part of some. Curly Hurley gave us the real Charleston. To lend a little seriousness to the affair, a debate was staged, but unfortunately we cannot dis- close the question nor the results. Representatives from different schools gave short talks about the formation and success of the G. A. A. in their schools. Marjorie Browne gave an original pianologue accompanied by Charlotte Davis. To lend a little foreign atmosphere, Jo Taylor gave a hula-hula dance to the interpretation of a reading by Leona Jackson. FACULTY PARTY IN MOUNTAINS Despite the hazards of the adventurous trip to Lake Arrowhead, the faculty returned safely with a report of a wonderful time. About twenty-seven went up Friday September 25, the rest following on Saturday morning. The week-end was spent in ball playing, barbecu- ing, and the men even serenaded our lady teachers. Tired but happy, the faculty returned late Sunday night with remembrances of a de- lightful trip. [ z? BIG AND LITTLE SISTER PARTY On a happy day before school started, had one chanced to pass I he auditorium, he would have heard much rooting, for on September II the big sisters met their little sisters in a joyful clash for the com- l)anionship title. It was the first event of the year, and the green little freshmen were as thrilled by their gaining knowledge of their place of habitance for the next nine months as the big sisters were in delivering this knowledge to their new charges. After the little sisters were introduced to two worthy campus friends and advisors. Miss Kast and Mr. Plummer, they were presented a lovely program which they enjoyed equally as much as the lovely refreshments they were later given. Much credit goes to the girls of the cabinet who worked so hard to make it more pleasant and simple for the freshman girls wiien the huge wheel of education started turning for the coming year. MOTHERS ' AND DAUGHTERS ' BANQUET The evil spirits of Hallowe ' en had no bad effect on the loyalty of the Girls ' League, but instead provided a motive for decoration for the cafeteria where the mothers and daughters held their annual banquet. A lovely dinner was served, and the president, Marjorie Browne gave a worthy toast to the mothers which was returned by Mrs. Harvey. Miss Kast gave an inspiring, tender message to the girls and their mothers. The guests spent the rest of the delightful evening getting acquainted. SENIOR DITCH DAY After many heated debates as to where they should go, the seniors finally decided to grace Forest Home with their exalted pres- ence, so on Thursday, the 11th of February, the campus was left for- lorn. Everybody returned safely, even Miss Klahn and ' " Lizzie, " but there were many groans and lamentations on Friday when one hundred and eighty-one tired seniors had to start lessons again. " z?

Have you ever felt that horrible, smothery, cheeky feeling, which come as a herald of the dreadful disease of Nostalgia? If you have not, then the Fates have indeed been kind to you, for it is one of the most terrible diseases that mankind is subject to. Its cause is absence from home; its one and only remedy, going home. It usually runs its course in from two days to a week; but, in extreme cases, often lasts for months. My first attack of homesickness came upon my first trip away from home. Having been brought up in a small southern town, I came to the conclusion that I must go away somewhere to seek my fortune. To my surprise, this decision caused no great storm of protest in the family, though I shall never forget the puzzled, hurt look in mother ' s eyes as she agreed to my plan. I glanced at father. His face wore a surprised look, and — did I imagine it? — his eyes twinkled in that exasperating way which makes me feel very young and very, very foolish. The morning I was to go away is clearly impressed on my mind. It seemed that I had been asleep hardly more than fifteen minutes when mother awakened me. She sat silently beside me while I drank a cup of scalding, hot coffee. Somehow the old kitchen never seemed so good as it did that day. But at last, after searching frantically for my coat, and listening to endless instructions about how to conduct myself in my new surroundings, I found myself perched high on the seat of an old buck board beside a sleepy driver. As we rattled over a rough road to the station I was very cold, and the seat was not exactaly comfortable; but I had that mysterious sense of adventure which always accompanies one on his first journey away from home. After traveling for what seemed endless hours, I reached my where I was to go to school. I was in a tiny, plastered room in the home How stuffy that bedroom seemed in one at home with the apple tree in fuirbloom just outside the window and the blue hills in the distance! But I resolutely thrust all thoughts of home from my mind and went to supper. After the meal was over and I had gone upstairs, it came, that first icy, sickening pang of homesickness which everyone who has had such an experience knows so well. In that moment I would have given all I possessed if I had never even thought of leaving home I looked at the old alligator skin valise that mother had destination in the little city soon comfortably established of a friend of the family. comparison with my sunny cIP The Pic i a d c s packed so lovingly that morning, and a hoirible ache came into my throat, threatening to choke me. Things that had seemed tiresome and irritating at home now seemed heavenly. I thought of the embarrassing way father had of making me recite the books of the Bible to every visitor who came to the house, although I always insisted that I had entirely outgrown this custom. Even the old red and blue " Rock of Ages " picture which I had said was so out of date and which, nevertheless, mother kept hung over the fireplace, seemed an angel to beckon me home. And the old clock, with its monotonous, sing song sound, the faded wall paper, the dressing table father had made for me — all these came back in a rush of memories to increase that throbbing and longing for home. I thought of a dozen wild plans of escape, from feigning sickness to suicide, but abandoned them all with the realization that the only remedy was to go home. I have met people since then who stared at me in wonder when I told them of this feeling. They had been away from home numbers of times and yet did not know there was such an experience. I have seen people who actually said that they would like to know how it felt to be homesick, and I ' ve always gone away from them wondering whether they ever really had a home or whether they were normal human beings. Perhaps it is foolish, this strange malady of homesickness. Certainly it is to those who have never experienced it ; but somehow, as I think of that old home now broken, it does not seem foolish to me, and my heartfelt sympathy goes out to anyone who is homesick. Rose Young. VITALITY AT EBB Oh God! Protect me from this spirit of the night Which haunts my sleep ; Attacks me Under cover of darkness Blacker than the Styx, And fills me with a nameless dread ; Chills me so that I cannot move. Stops my breath. Tugs at my heart, Binds my soul — Oh God! Spare me this visitation from the dead. Robert Cutter. T he PI e I a d e s ' A JAPANESE ART SHOP " Buy some tea? Rare Japanese tea?

Katherine Littleton rs3= The Pic i a d e s SOME " REJECTED THOUGHTS " I have just finished i-eading an essay in " Harp er ' s " , by an anonymous author, entitled " A Fetish of the Job. " In it, the writer gives an account of her revolt from existence of mere money-making in order that she might be able to follow her own desires and inclinations in life. This article has awakend within me such a train of my own " rejected thoughts " that I am taking the liberty of putting them down here. My early childhood was a glorious succession of sunny days, days that began in rose and ended in gold, days of the most perfect freedom in woods and hills when the only occupation outside of play was to dream of " great things to do by and by. " But, as always happens, I came to the turn in the lane. The scenery around the bend is not quite so beautiful ; the trail is a bit more rugged, and I find myself facing the future with this one and only proposition : I must get a job. This fact is held up before me continually by well-meaning kindred who have my interest at heart and who, because they have observed that I am somewhat of a dreamer anyway, feel it their Christian duty to guide my feet into paths of safety and a " good job. " One dear aunt in particular has taken occasion to remind me ever since I started to high school that I am making the mistake of my life in not taking a commercial course. Although I have longed to tell her that I should be making the mistake of my life if I did take up business, I have meekly acquiesced and started studying bookkeeping. These same dear relatives ask me at regular intervals what I am going to do when I finish high scool, and when I reply that I am not just sure yet, they sigh as if resigning themselves to the fate of having one member of the family who cannot " make her own way. " Please do not get the idea that I am one of these people who value their " sacred indviduality " so much that they scorn all advice; quite the contrary I assure you. It is only that my ideas of success and those of some relations differ so widely. To them success is the ability to make money. To me , it is the ability to make the most of one ' s talents, life, and opportunities. Now I ask you, is it selfish egotism to want to do what you can do, what you know you are fitted for? Where did we get this notion that material gain is the only standard by which to measure success, anyway? Does it spring from the fact that our modern civilization has made life so hard that the " struggle for existence " must occupy our time to the exclusion of everything else? T h e PI c I a d e s For several summers I have had a job. 1 should not have minded that at all if it had been a kind 1 liked, but it was the most soul-starv- ing, monotonous work I ever did, and I went to my task each morning with the most sullen feeling of rebellion although out- wardly I was the picture of perfect contentment. Strange as it may seem, even the weekly pay envelope did not always cheer me up. I would far rather have had time to enjoy the ribbons of gold cloud across the morning sky as I hurried to the street car than the few dollars I received as wages. . In that same place of employment were girls working as I did, girls eating their lunches in stubborn silence, girls with painted faces, tragic eyes, and bitter, false smiles, girls who rushed home at the close of the day to spend their eveninge at cheap dance halls and cabarets, anything to break the horrible monotony of doing exactly the same thing eight hours daily. One child in particular stays in my mind. She was only twelve or thirteen 1 think. She was pointed out to me as an example of achievement. " Just think " people would say to me, " Thelma makes sixteen dollars a week and she is much younger than you. " How I wished that this little girl could have known some of my own happy hours, sitting in a dark, old attic on a rainy day reading " Little Women " or " Dr. Lavender ' s People. " Do not misunderstand me. I ' m not discounting work. Honest labor is one of the greatest gifts of God. I am only protesting against our " being cast into the same mold, " our being made to do things which we detest just because others do them. I sincerely admire the eager, clear-eyed, young, business woman, whose heart is in her woi-k, but is that any reason why I should be a stenographer? Is it a sin that I do not like commercial subjects? To me the woman who makes a beautiful garden oi- writes a lovely poem is just as much of a success as the woman who makes much money in a downtown office. That man who studies snowflakes in the remote hills of Vermont is just as successful as the man who coins his millions in Wall Street. But, although 1 may declare by all the Gods of Olympus that I won ' t do it, I shall, in the very nature of things, go into the ranks of those who have a " good job. " I shall not sing of lilacs in the moon- light, of what I heard when I held the moi-ning-glory up to my ear, of thrushes and stars and dusk on woodland waters. No, I must be prosaic and grab the first paying position that comes along. Why? Because the circumstances of my life demand it; my folks expect it. I want to do what is right. There is no way out. Rose Young. c z:? The Pleiades live several hundred years. One German scientist has even gone so far as to say that life might persist indefinitely under the proper con- ditions—perhaps! but I greatly fear that none of us, including the German scientist himself, are ambitious enough to meet those condi- tions. Maybe there are ways to lengthen our existence, but what in this world do we want with a life that has no declining glory, no ripe old age? Death is a part of nature ' s plan; when we attempt to de- ceive nature, we are usually punished. Let us take life as it comes. The only proper and happy life, it seems to me, is the one which has its natural harvest time, the glorious, sweet old age. Harrison Giddings. A COUNTRY ROAD AT NIGHT It is night With a half-moon light. And a country road lies glimmering In the gloom light. And a country road lies shimmering Into vagueness over the hill, As skeleton shadows of the trees Lightly feel With conquering lust Its down-like dust. While sings, with hushed sounds, the moonlight breeze. The colors shy Softly ply Their fairy way over the hill — Colors full with the chill dawn grey That comes with the break of day. Colors full with the warm blue grey That comes with the close of day. Grey gay colors playing Over the country road glimmering — shimmering In the moonlight Of the pale moonlight. Ernestine Coleman. T h I c r I I (I d VOICES THAT APPEAL TO ME (Junior Prize Essay) Of all the different kinds of voices the most common are the voices of people and of birds and animals. But it is in none of these that I am interested. It is in the little voices that 1 hear on rare occasions only — not with the outer but with the inner ear. First comes the voice of the morning. This is a very beautiful voice and a very inspirational one. It impels one to awake and be glad, to thank God that he has this day to live, to rejoice with the singing birds in everything about him, and to make this day more beautiful for his having lived. Often on golden, sunny mornings, I have heai ' d this voice coming from some unknown source, calling me in clear, bell-like tones, so real that it might almo:;t be the lark in the field outside my window. Then 1 must up and away, for 1 cannot re- sist the golden call of the morning. Next comes the voice of the evening, a pi-ayei-ful voice that calls one to vespers. It calls him to see the red and gold of the sunset, the purple shadows of the hill, to hear the wild dove ' s evening song, and to breathe a prayer of gratefulness to his Maker that this day has been so happy. Always when I have heard this voice in the evening, it has made me very happy. I have seen new glory in the sunset, new beauty in the twinkling stars, new gold in the rising moon, and have felt more love for the soft, dark shadows of the evening. And then there is the voice of sprin g; what a wonderful voice it is! It is full of mu.sic, clear, joyous. It helps one appreciate awaken- ing life and whispers to him to go to the woods to find the first wild flowers and the first bird ' s nest and hear the blue bird ' s spring song. It calls him to wor.ship the Spirit of new life and to mai ' vel at all the beauties created by the spirit. It makes him thrill with life and joy. It inspires him to do something great and good and beautiful ; it teaches him to see real loveliness in life. And then it goes singing along through the days, growing fainter and fainter till at last it is succeeded by summer ' s voice. Each time I hear the voice of spring something within me is awakened, something that makes me yearn to break the bonds that bind me to school and be free, — free to do as I please, free to roam in nature ' s haunts, free to play forever with never a care nor a duty. O, for just one day in pursuit of the pleasures that call me in springtime! The voice of summer is a dreamy voice. It whispers to one on long summer afternoons when he has laid aside his book to watch the flies hanging lazily in the air and the bees droning di ' owsily in the gai-dens. It carries him away to dreamlands where he dreams of a perpetual summer time with singing birds and humming bees and shadv lawns and trees and (lowers, with golden, sunlit days and silver. M " Z? The Pic i a d e s moonlit, starry nights. Here finally the sandman catches him and he dreams no more. Whenever I hear this voice I, too, have such dreams ; vhen I awaken, ti is as though I had drunk of the fountain of per- petual youth and of the waters of oblivion. I can scarcely realize that I am not still in dreamland until some harsh reality brings me crash- ing back to earth. Of all nature ' s voices there are two that I love best. The first of these is the voice of the mountains. It comes to me in the early sum- mer, wafted on the east wind, calling me to come and play. At first it is very faint, but it grows and grows till I can resist no longer. Then I hie me away to the mountains to revel in a wonderland come true among the tall yellow pines with rippling brooks and silver shadow fishes and brilliantly colored flowers in abundance. There on mossy banks I can lie for hours and dream, — dream that I shall never leave this enchanting fairyland ; that I am once more a child ; that, like Peter Pan, I shall never grow up. If I listen very closely on such occasions, I can hear the voices of the fairies mingled with those of my dreams, very faint and soft, almost an echo, luring me on and on in quest of something I ' ll never find ; for I can never really find the fairies. I can only dream of them or sometimes hear them faintly, but I can never see them or know them. The voice of the mountains is wonderfully fascinating to me. It draws me after it into the mountain, making me forget the tiresome world beyond the last fringe of pines. I can think only of the mountains and of the people around me. Each summer when I go home, the echoes of this voice are in my heart. They help me through the long dreary year until I can again answer the call of the mountains. Last of all I will tell you of the voices of the pines. These seem the most real to me because I can hear them with the outer as well as with the inner ear. The pines whisper and sfgh in the wind and awaken within me the other voices, almost echoes of themselves. Then, if I listen very closely, I can hear their story. It is a long one, and it takes a long time to tell it; for they talk very slowly, and they sigh a great deal. However, if I listen, I can hear it; and it will lead me again through all the paths of fantasy to the heights of joy as it did when first I heard it. As often as I hear their story, I am inspired by it. I can see more beauty in the things around me, and I feel a new joy in life. Do not think, O reader, that I am foolish; that I imagine all this, that it is only a fairy tale. It is not ; the voices are real ; they can speak to you as well as to me if you will only listen for them. Do not expect to hear a clear voice like the human voice speaking to you in the language of the tongue. No, for you will not hear that. My voices speak the language of the soul ; but the language of the soul is not the T he PI e i a d c s xZT language we speak. It is infinitely more beautiful and more expres- sive. It is a language of thrills and heart throbs and glad feelings within one. It is only once in awhile that these voices speak our everyday language. Listen, some day when you have a glad feeling within you singing, singing away; you will hear one of the voices call to your soul. You will thrill with joy, and then you, too, will under- stand. Catherine Crist. DEATH Silence hot and oppressive Within the house, clean-swept, Chairs just so, cushions there, Everything too orderly kept. Sickening odor of tube-roses Fills the desolate room. Low voices of friends, trying to cheer me. Only increase the gloom. Curtains flapping idly In the languid breeze, Yellow sunlight sifting Thi ' ough the maple trees. I have forgotten the first sharp pang, But 1 shall always remember these. Rose Young. CAMEO I see you, laughing gaily with head thrown back. Your white teeth startling against the sunset sky. Marjorie Lucas. c ZZP T h P I c I a a e s THE CAMPUS CRISIS Scene : High School Campus. Time : The Present. Curtain rises on scene at the front of the campus. " School-Spirit, " a wasted, wistful-looking girl, is lying on a bed made up of lost books, slightly used yellow and white paper, and bar wrappers. " Waste " and " Extravagance " are working over her. Extravagance : " Well, we ' ve fixed her bed for her. I ' ll be darned if I can think of anything else we can do for her. " Waste: " Here, too. If it hadn ' t been for us, she wouldn ' t have a place to lay her head. " (Cynicism and Bluff enter L. in time to catch the words). Cynicism (sarcastically) : " Yes. You fellows do wonders. If it hadn ' t been for you, she probably wouldn ' t have needed a bed. " Extrav. : " Dry up ! If you weren ' t so bloomin ' sarcastic, you might be of some assistance. " Waste : " Get busy. We ' ve done our part. Just look at all those wrappers and almost-fresh paper we ' ve provided. We ' ve made our- selves useful. " Cynicism: " Sure! Kill her so you can get credit for making a measly little bed for her. " Extravagance: " Come on. Waste, we ' ve work to do. " (Waste and Extravagance exit R). Bluff (yelling after them): " So long, old pals! See you later. " (To Cynicism) : " Gee, I feel great! I ' ve never felt better in my life. Just think! I ' ve grown nine inches taller and have gained fifty pounds this term. I was so weak and thin when I ran around with Diligence. " Cynicism : " Diligence is sure changed ; she has a scraggly, worn- out look (sits on lawn quite away from School Spirit; Bluff does the same). A girl has no right trying to run us here, anyway. She ' s no good, — none of them are. " Bluff: " Now, you go too far. Petting is a good scout, and you know she is. " Cynicism: " Don ' t fool yourself. She has no sense whatever. " Bluff: " She ' s a doggone good-looking girl. " Cynicism: " There ain ' t no sich animal. " (Enter Patience R. Goes to School Spirit and works over her quietly. School Spirit has been growing weaker and weaker as the conversation continues). Bluff: " I wonder what ails School Spirit? She used to be so popular. " (They walk over to the bed and watch Patience work for a while, then return and sit down again). " She used to wrap every one around her little finger. " T h r I I (I 6 I C Cynicism: " Oh, her? She ' s a back number! They put her on the shelf when Petting, Indifference, and Pomp joined the gang. " Bluff: " Didn ' t Pep used to step her? " Cynicism: " Yeh, he used to, but he dropped her flat. Petting monopolizes all his time now. I think he is looking quite fagged-out; that kind of a life is telling on him. " Bluff: " He ' s a good kid. We have some dandy good times to- gether. " Patience: " Do you boys know where we can find Loyalty and Goodfellowship? School Spirit keeps asking for them. " (Bluff walks toward Patience, who has stepped foi ' ward while talking. Cynicism crosses in back and stands looking at School Spirit). Bluff: " I haven ' t seen Loyalty foi- weeks. What does she want him for, anyway? Why, he ' s nothing but an old nuisance. " Patience: " Nuisances or not, they are the only people who can save School Spirit from death. Oh, do help find them! Please! " Cynicism: " Don ' t be foolish. Goodfellow ' s only a girl. What good could she do? " Voice, off stage: " Hey! Bluff! Come see Charleston; he ' s goin ' good. " (Bluff and Cynicism exit L slowly, talking as they walk). Bluff: " Pve been busy this term all right. I ' ve got to help that Senior class graduate, and then Pm going to take a good rest. " Cynicism: " Most of those confounded girls wouldn ' t get through if it wasn ' t for you. " Bluff: " They take up a lot of my time all right, but the boys do their share. " (They stand for a second at the L. before exit). Cynicism (sarcastically) : " Of course you ' d stand up for them. If it wasn ' t for them, you wouldn ' t be so strong. " (Exit) (School Spirit moans and tries to turn over. Patience helps her as she watches, slightly disgusted, the boys leaving the campus). Patience: " Now, dear, are you comfortable? Is thei-e anything I can get for you ? " School Spirit (weakly): " Loyalty! Goodfellowship! Where are you Patience : " Sh ! There now ! I ' m sure School Spirit : " Oh, I need them now. longer. " Patience: " Just a little while, dear, come. They will feel your call. " (School Spirit begins to cry softly). School Spirit: " They have deserted me. back. " they ' ll come soon. " I can ' t hold on alone much Keep up and hope they ' ll Oh, please bring them rs3 T h PI C 1 (J d e s Patience (soothingly) : " Hush, darling, let me sing to you. " School Spirit: " If Pep were only here to sing the school songs, I know I ' d feel better. He has deserted me too. " (School Spirit falls into a light, restless sleep). Patience (softly) : " She is dozing. I hope they come before she awakens. " (Enter L., Pomp and Formality). Patience (motioning to the girls to be quiet). Patience: " Quiet, girls. This is the first sleep that she has had for weeks. " Pomp: " Poor School Spirit! " Formality: " Isn ' t it a shame? We ' ve done our best to take her place while she ' s been ill. We ' ve worked up more ceremonies and have made some lovely regulations to help her, but she gets weaker instead of better, with our help. " Patience : " Do see if you can ' t find her pals. " Pomp: " We haven ' t time now. We must be on hand for some installation ceremonies. " Formality (to Pomp) : I see Extravagance. Let ' s join him. " (To Patience) : " I ' m sorry we can be of no assistance. Good-bye. " (Exit L). Teamwork and Determination enter R. slowly, as Teamwork is a cripple). Teamwork: " Hello! What ' s this? " Patience: " Sh ! I ' m glad you ' re here. She is breathing faster and faster, and I fear the end is near. " Teamwork: " Isn ' t there any way to save her? " Patience: " Only by reinstating her friends here. " Determination : " Then we shall find them and reinstate them. Goodwill will help us. " Teamwork: " Yes. Expect us back shortly. " (Exit R.). (Re-enter Extravagance, Waste, Pomp and Formality). Patience: " She is leaving. It is a matter of minutes. " (Gather around her ber). Formality: " Let us line up, and tell her goodbye one by one. I ' ve a lovely speech planned. " Pomp: " That ' s a splendid idea. Let ' s do it on bended knee; that will be more effective. " (Enter Blufi " and Cynicism). Extravagance: " I have some lovely new words. " Cynicism : " That ' s all you have — flowery words and no brains. " Bluff: " I ' ve no speech prepared, but I ' ll get through some way. " (Enter Pep and Petting, arm in arm). Pep : " My poor little pal ! I ' ve been neglectful of her. " T h I c P I c I a d e s Petting: " Her death won ' t cause any excitement. Who cares about her anyway? " Patience: " Why don ' t they come? We ' ve scarcely a minute to spare. " Cynicism : " She ' ll die anyway. She ' s only a girl and hasn ' t charac- ter enough to pull her through. " Patience: " Here they come running! Stand back, everyone! " (School Spirit turns over and begins breathing easily). " Hurry! Why, Loyalty, you ' re as pale as death itself. Someone get him a drink. " Loyalty and Goodfellowship (together): " Where is she? Is she gone? Tell us quickly. " Patience : " No, not yet. Come. " (Loyalty and Goodfellowship kneel by bed). Loyalty: " Wake up. We ' re here to help you. " School Spirit lifts head, sees friends, and cries with joy). Spirit : " You did come ! I knew you would save me. " (She gets stronger instantly, and sits up; her eyes twinkle, and she is almost herself again). Pep (breaking away from Petting, starts for the bed. Petting and Bluff grab him. He shakes them off and sinks by the bed) : " Oh, my darling, please forgive me. Give me just one more chance. " (School Spirit takes his hand, rises, and the two skip around the campus, and then sit down in the center of the stage. Their friends gather around them. Bluff, Petting, Waste and Extravagance with drooping heads, sulk in corners. Pomp and Form, sink to the gi-ound with a groan). Pomp and Formality: " Dethroned for that thing! " Cynicism (to Pomp and P ' ormality) : You needn ' t worry. She won ' t last long. " School Spirit: " Oh, where did you find them? " Goodwill: " Loyalty was bound up in a book; he had been there for weeks. " All: " And Goodfellowship? " Goodwill: " Guess! " All: ' Tell us, please! " Goodwill : " She was hidden away down deep in the heart of the Freshman Class. (Curtain) Mildred Johnson. M, cl? T he PI c i a d c I a a c s REVERIE The first sign of spring had been seen on the warm hills near San Diego, and the hills resplendent in their green spring garments were teeming with life. Rabbits and ground squirrels frisked over the warm ground ; they too had felt fever coming over them. Two quails could be heard answeiing one another as they drew nearer to each other. Their notes were brimming with life and eagerness. A smart old coyote was fathoming their moves and had planned upon one, or perhaps two, of those quail for his breakfast, as his speed failed to help him catch a young cottontail two hours before. The coyote was terribly hungry; his mind was made up to strike to perfection this time. The quail soon met under a bushy chaperal, and greeted each other noisily, under the sly coyote ' s eye. He watched them as they strutted around beneath the bush, but his hunger got the better of him and failed to watch the dried branches of the bush. The crack- ling snapping twig was like the trigger setting off two bullets. Whirr! And the two plump quail were three hundred yards away. Both of the pair had dealt with the old shylock before. Two weeks later, under a thorn bush interwoven with cactus, the quail had built their nest, and the female bird had laid thirty-three speckled eggs deep in its folds. They were sure of their seclusion from preying animals, and were sure that detection was impossible. The quail were kept busy turning the eggs to insure a perfect hatch. Also they became more wary and careful of their own action lest their nest should be discovered. Six weeks after their nest had been completed, the proud parent (juai! led twenty eight small quail that closely resembled bees from the thorn bush. Two eggs were broken during the hatching and three eggs did not hatch. My! but those parents were proud of the tiny, swift-running, little babies. The parents soon had them feeding and scratching for themselves on the sage-covered hillsides. Although the parent quail kept a constant watch on the young, the flock only numbered twenty five, two weeks after hatching. It was about the middle of June, and the quail were gliding through rock-strewn sage brush, when with the swiftness of a lightning flash three of the small birds had fallen, prey to a deadly rattlesnake before the father quail had sounded his warning cry. As soon as the young birds could fly with ease, the parent quail weaned them and left them to their own keeping. Returning to the same thornbush, the parent quail reared another brood that same summer. This time they were unfortunate, for Old Sly, the coyote, had discovered their hiding place; and when they finally came out into the open one evening, seven of the eighteen young were snapped up by Old Sly ' s greedy jaws. This greatly dis- heartened the parent birds, and their cries that rang over the desert- like hills were very sad and slow. T h P I I (I a c s I 31 The summer heat had killed most of the green grass, and food was becoming scarcer each day. Most of the othei- flocks of quail were already in the deeper hills or low mountains ; so the parent quail gathered their first brood again, and with their second brood, migrated to the low mountains that were covered with dense thickets. December the first, the opening day of the quail season, found four hunters with dogs camped near the valley in the mountains con- taining the brood of quail and also many more broods which had sought the lonesome spot as a last security against the hunters. These four had packed in sixteen miles just to satisfy their curiosity and desire for a good quail shoot. They hadn ' t seen a quail or heard a quail ' s cry so far; conaequently they were tired and discouraged, but they stayed for a hunt anyway. The following morning the flock of quail, the younger brood now grown to maturity, were routed from a feeding place under mes- quite bushes. A dog, quickly recognized by the flock, had thrust his nose right into the bush they were feeding in. The warning cry by the lookout flattened and concealed the whole group, but not from the dog. Two quail soon took the air. Bang! Bang! The awaiting hunters downed them both. The whole flock took to the air scatter- ingly, and many of the birds had a like fate. All day long the hunter ' s gun rang through the stillness of nature ' s pai-adise. The father quail, acting as a decoy, flew up to save his small flock, but was shot by two of the awaiting hunters ' guns. That evening the hunters gathered ai-ound their camp fii-e after one of the best shoots they ever had. They bi-aggingly boasted over their kill which ran well over their limit. But what of the flock of quail, every one killed but two? Like many other flocks that day, it was torn and shattered, a mere play- thing for sport lovei-s. Under a sage bush lay the mother, ci-ippled in the wing, and heartbroken. She could have lived, but she didn ' t care to; her mate killed and her young gone, nothing to live for. Her cunning had saved herself and one of her (lock, who had escaped. After several hours of suffering, she closed her eyes in her last sleep as Old Sly, the coyote, sounded her reverie with a long saddened wail that disturbed the peaceful sleep of the hunters.

COACHES ; Iuch has been said of the high ■xrade sportsmanship at Fullerton llijlh, not a little of which is due to the influence of the four splendid men whose full time and interest have gone into making the teams what they are. Coach Lewis as head of the jihysical education department has been serving the school for six years. The inspiration which he instills in his teams is appreciated l)y the entire student body. Coach " Shorty " Smith has just completed his eighth year as coach of the two major sports, football and baseball. Coach Smith ' s work has been the life of the sports for the boys. Al Dowden came to us last year from S. B. U. C. He has been in charge of track and swimming. Al is a man with a fine personality and is liked by all who work under him. Coach Harry Alter is in charge of tennis. Mr. Alter arranges many tournaments for the teams and has turned out some fine tennis players. He goes to Chaft ' ey Union next year. We are sorry to lose him. The fellows of a squad uncon- sciously look up to their coach and do as he does to a great extent. For the record of grit and honor behind us, let us thank our coaches: Glenn Lewis, Shorty Smith, Harry Alter and Al Dowden; men who know l)ovs and their work. T h r I I a a i HFl SPORTS IN F. U. H. S. In competitive sports or contests of any kind our Alma Mater is jealous of her reputation for fair play and fight to the finish. The highest aim in having physical culture in the curriculum is not to win games or to get a large score against an opponent, but to teach good sportsmanship and fair play. A person who " plays the game " on the field of sport is better fitted to meet the tasks of life and play the game with his fellow men. F. U. II. S. is exceptionally fortunate in having the complete equipment that she has. With a big new gymnasium and a clean, pure pool in which to play, there is no reason why a student should not want to spend hours of his time within its walls. We ai-e proud of the victories that have been won by teams rep- resenting our school. We are exceptionally proud of the champion- ships won during the school year of 1925-2(5, which include the Orange League Championships in Varsity Football, Class B Football, Varsity Basketball, Class D Basketball, Varsity Baseball and Second Team Baseball. As one can see, Fullerton is not a " one sport " school. We do not " go in " for football or any other branch of athletics to the exclusion of all else, but believe that there is time for each. And in each one the men are taught to fight hard but to fight fair, and to play foi- the love of the game. VARSITY FOOTBALL The football season of 192.5 is the best season that I have had since 1 began coaching. The record of winning all of the league games without the opponents scoi-ing, is a record to be proud of. I have had more pleasure working with the boys of this year ' s squad than of any other. They had wonderful team spirit; each man for the other man. The school this year loses football men that will be hard to replace, but with the same old fight and spirit that Fuller- ton is noted for, look out for the 1926 team. Besides the letter men those who should I ' eceive honorable men- tion, but who did not play enough to win letters are : Bryan, Culver, DelGiorgio, Hatfield, Hawkins, Jenkins, Johnson, Ro.ss, Stephens, Walters and Wilson. These men made it possible for the team to be a winner. They worked hard and faithfully to put over a good season. Hats ofi " to these boys who took all the hard knocks and battering so that the other fellows could win their games. The team won 10 out of 11 games. They scored 235 points to their opponents ' o4. San Diego was the only high school to score on the team. Occidental College scored 13 points and Pomona College Freshmen scored 7 points. — Coach Smith.

We will miss you, Pete, I know. LYSLE SMITH. Right half. A man full of fight and willing to go at any time. We expect a " great deal from him next year. A r i7 CLASS B FOOTBALL Another Class " B " ' Football Championship! The comment was made last year that the Class " B " prospects wei-e very good for 1925. Now, looking back on the 1925 season, one realizes how well fonnded was this opinion. Our school this year had a lai ' ger squad in this division, playing more successfully a larger number of games than last year and we are particularly glad that we were able to join Classes " A " and " C " in making a clean sweep of the Orange League Football Championships. Three letter men from last year ' s team wei ' e again eligible. They were: Clarence Dauser. Arthur Hardison and Oakle Adams. With these came five or six others from last year ' s squad, a number of boys from the " C " squad, and several who were new at the game. The material available was unusually good, but team work developed rather slowly with the result that we lost our first league game to the strong Anaheim team. Gradually improving, however, our " B ' s " played the next five games without having their goal line crossed and won the right to meet Anaheim again. We won this game 14-7 and with it the League Championship. In the play-off for Southern Cali- fornia honors we met the powerful Huntington Park team and lost to them only after a much better game than the score would indicate. The letter men are : Clarence Dauser, Capt., Oakle Adams, Ken- neth Chesley, Gerald Davis, Arthur Hardison, Bob Hezmalhalch, Floyd Lakeman, Thomas Quinn, Gerald Rilea, Albert Rothaermel, Waldo Smith, Perry Thayer, Charles Thompson, Bernard Wall, Sew- ard Wetton, Grover Wrighley, Ed. Zuckerman. Those deserving of mention are: Philip Allen, Glenn Boyles, Don Clark, Leonard Little, Bob Lyttle, Stanley Schulte, and Floyd Wildermuth. The successful work of the entire squad together with the high quality of sportsmanship shown by all gives us a feeling of satisfaction regarding the work of the past season and promise much for 1926. Glenn H. Lewis. C FOOTBALL The Class " C " team this year played a hard schedule of nine games, defeating every team in their league. Santa Ana, Whittier and Downey, all contributed to the early education of the " C ' s, " who week by week came back, playing harder, better ball. It was in the first league game with Anaheim that they came into their o n and broke even after a bitter battle. Their care- ful handling of the ball, big time line bucking, and brilliant passes were a revelation to the spectators on the side lines. The Saturday following the Anaheim game the fast Long Beach team taught the " C ' s " enough more football to enable them to coast through the rest of their schedule without a defeat. The baby braves with the scalps of Huntington Beach and Orange at their belts, found themselves again matched with Anaheim in a play-off for the league title. When the smoke of battle had rolled away the Indians had garnered four touchdowns to their rivals ' one. With a crippled squad the " C ' s " lost to El Monte in the fir.st round of the Southern California play-off. The letter men are : rs3P T h P 1 c I a c s Vincent Dauser, Captain and quarter-back. A plucky, heady little man who knew his stuff. Wendell Redfern, quarterback. Knew how to think in a tight place and always gave his best. Donald Kisner, half-back. A man who will be heard from again in Fullerton football. Ira Hover, fighting guard. Played in every quarter of every game. Preston Owens, center and guard. Another man who will shine on the Fullerton gridiron later. Bill McFadden, tackle. Bill always gave his best and kept on " sayin ' nothin ' . " Bob Williams, full back. Put all he had in every play. Did his best when the going got rough. Ralph Gulp, end. Knew how to snag passes and was a hard man to get around. Bob Finch, half-back. A heady player and a good man with the ball. Donald Keller, end. Another plugger; his best went into every play. Chas. Waits, half back. A " wiz " at picking holes and could hit like a veteran. Roy Delby, end. A good man on end ; spearing passes his specialty. Harry Gurley, guard. Got his chance at Huntington Beach and came through with a bang. Blocking punts his dish. Ralph Jenkins, center. Knew how to put the ball in the groove every time. Jack Hatfield, tackle. Hit the big ones as if they were little ones and came back for more. VARSITY BASKETBALL Our basketball team swung back into its routine of successes this year when it won the Orange League Championship without a loss. it won nine out of sixteen games, making a score fo 259 to its oppon- ents ' 232. At the end of Christmas vacation, Coach Lewis took a team of green-horns over to Pomona and was defeated 27 to 7. Having only two letter-men from last year, Foster and Yorba, the team looked poor at first, but by constant practice, drill, and team work, the squad de- veloped into one of the best we have had for some years. The League games were as follows F. U. H. S. 22 Garden Grove 5 25 Capistrano 9 12 Orange 9 16 Anaheim 12 20 Huntingt on Beach 3 26 Tustin 12 " ■ i. ' ' ! • ' ' 3 " Bud " Foister, captain and forward, was responsible for most of our points. He gained 117 digits throughout the season. His teammate, George Buxton, was a steady, consistent forward. He was good at making points and also was a steady player on de- fense. Fred Osborne, another forward, could always be counted on to play a good game. Kendall Yorba was good at either guard or forward position. Jimmy Hawkins at center position was almost always able to get the tip-off at the center ring. He also shot a number of unique long shots. Arthur Kroeger also put in his bit at center. He was a hard fighter and good at defensive playing. Earl Curtis, captain for next year, was the best fighter on the team. Johnnie Dunn, the fellow who worked with Curtis, also made it hot for opposing forwards. Mel Curtis, Sleepy Layton, Otto Brandle and George Schroeter were good piayei-s, and although they did not win letters, are worthy of mention. m [ y- 13 f r — L : CLAtJS B BASKETBALL And now we come to the B Class basketball team. Coach " Shorty " Smith ' s squad this year was one of the best that he has had to coach for a number of years. The record of the team is very high. We won all but one league game and lost only one practice game. Our closest game was played at Anaheim on February 5th. At no time during the game was the result certain. The score was a tie during the last half; first one team would get a basket then the other would score. The game ended with the score 18 to 17 in our favor and the Reds had captured another scalp. The team had wonderful material in it this year. The Captain, Oakle Adams, led the team with excellent ability. Allen and Quinn at forward were responsible for most of our victories. The guards, Dauser and Ryan, cooperated with their forwards in keeping the ball in Fullerton ' s hands most of the time. The latter at standing guard seldom let an opposing forward through his defense. Rilea, the other letter-man, was an all-around player who substi- tuted at either the forward or guard position but played more effic- iently at the latter position. The substitutes, Vaughn at forward or guard and Thompson and Miller at center, came in handy at their positions and although they did not get their letters played the game worthy of mention. Adams, Quinn and Ryan, on the regular squad, and a score of substitutes will be back to apply for positions on either the B or Varsity teams next year. :: • -. " C " C ' LASiS UASKEiUALL The " C " class basketball season was somewhat discouiaKinR for the pla.vers. Four out of the five league games played were lost; three out of the four were lost by one point each. The total number of points scored in league games shows best the true value of the team. Fullerton " C " 69 points; Opponents ' " C " 61 points. Seven playei ' s were awarded letters. Dauser, Captain and speedy forward, was transferred to the " D " team after the third game. Con- siderable recognition was awarded Dauser for his accurate, fast play- ing. Keller filled the position of captain in a very able manner during the last half of the season. As a forward, Kellei- plays well; always alert, fast and a hard worker. Maxwell, paired with Keller as forward, worked hard to develop accuracy in basket shooting. Holston at center and inexperienced at the beginning of the season, filled the vacancy caused by the ineligibility of Quinn. His rapid development shows that with more experience he will niake a valuable asset to any team. Long, guard, first as a substitute and then as a regular player, is steady and reliable. Hemus, guard, is consistent and a hard worker. He will develop greatly with additional experience. Snell, substitute, played in most of the games and will make a steady player for future teams. fS3 " D " CLASS BASKETBALL This is the first year F. U. H. S. has had a " D " class basketball team. At first things did not look so bright, but the fellows all got in and worked hard to make a good team. Mutt Dauser is one of the best little basketball players in the state. Burton Goodrich ; a fast, flashy little forward. James Grieves played center this year for the " D ' s. " He practi- cally always outjumped his man and was one of the hard fighting men on the team. He stayed with his opponent and outplayed him. Wendell Redfern was a great help to the team this year by his long shots. Captain " Skeet " Steele is the coolest and best guard in school. At all times he was fighting and working hard for the success of his team. Substitutes: Edmond Wright. Ed. came in late. In fact he never got to play in a league game, but in all the semi-final games. Robert Allen. Bob was another good sub that gave them all a run for their money. Harry Roeschlaub. Harry played a good game at forward and was ready to go in at any time. Others who helped make a successful year and of whom much could be said, are: Paul Sparks, Ted Janeway, Harry Poor, Burt Harris. William Webster, Clayton Partridge, Richard Shepard, Fritz Reece, Skeet Smith. All in all this has been a very successful year. I hope we will have as good a team next year. Ray Jenkins. VARSITY BASEBALL Champions of the Golden Southland ! That is what Coach Stewart Smith ' s baseball nine is. This year ' s baseball team is one of the best and most remarkable squads that has ever played on our diamond. Nearly every man is a veteran of from one to three yeai-s. At the time of writing, the team has played 28 games and won 26; making a total score of 319 runs to .59. Fullerton won the Orange league title, winning all 16 games by large scores. Besides defeating the county teams Fullerton has defeated all of its neighbors including Santa Ana, Shei-man Institute, San Bei-nai ' dino, Compton, Redlands, Manual Ails, Southern Branch Fi-osh and a Navy team. Seven letter men returned from last year. Otto Brandle was cap- tain. He certainly is a peppy player. He is famous for his ability to snag the ball before the runner reaches first. He has about a half dozen home runs to his ci ' edit also. As a Freshman, Buddy Forster pitched for the school nine. He has held the mound or an outfield position for four years and has probably played more games than any other player. A new athlete was found in the Frosh class in the person of Wil- lard Hershberger. He was catcher this year and he was surely good " Z? T h c Pleiad c s at his place. Willard will be on the squad for three more years. Another player to hold No. 2 position was " Dynamite " Curtis. " Dyna " has another year. He is a hard hitting willow wielder. Pete Tarchione holds down third sack. Pete is a three-year veteran. Another veteran is Clarence Dauser. Choppy played second last year but was moved to center field. He is a good hitter and fielder. One of the luckiest and speediest fielders is " Chisel " Hatfield. " Chisel " has another year in which to display his wares. He surely can snag the high ones over short and third. Another of the veteran regulars is Johnnie Dunn. " Duge " plays the right field position. He has certainly served the team and school nobly. Adams at short stop position has two more years. Oakie is tak- ing an active part in all school athletics. Big things may be expected of him in the future. Another pitcher is Homer Hurst. He served part time on the mound and part at right field. He has another year. " Beauty " Ryan is a new name. He fits in at the second sack position well. He is making a name for himself in the athletics of the school. SECOND TEAM BASEBALL Much credit is due Coaches Smith and Lewis for the way they have developed their team into champion league winners. The second squad was under the supervision of Coach Glenn Lewis. A league of seven schools was formed of the second teams and junior high schools of the county. The Fullerton team had little trouble in winning every game. They made the remarkable record of averaging 20 runs per game. They made 119 runs to their opponents ' total of 10. The Santa Ana squad was the only team to get more than one run. The first game was with them and the score of 17 to 6 tells the story for itself. The following players are worthy of mention : Bloomer and Hemus alternated at the mound. Both are good material for next year. The latter has three years ahead of him. Murphy played third base with McElhaney at short stop. These four men played on the varsity at times. Ross was the catcher of the squad. Rosas and .Jenkins alternated at first. Smith played second sack with a good brand of ball. The outfielders were: Vaughn, Bloomer, Wetton, Hiltcher and DelGeorgio. They all played good ball. Wetton is the only senior; we should expect to see the other four on the varsity next year. Z51 SCI ♦ r ' ' ' Opponents 34 Fullerton 58 Fu lleilon Union High School has been very fortunate this year in having an exceptionally strong and well balanced tennis team. All players fought hard throughout the year for theii ' places on the squad, and keen competition among team members kept them in excellent condition for all tournaments. No player at any time has been sure of his position. Captain Gerald Bocge retained his position as iirst most of the year; Olaf Hansen and Thomas Quinn took the honor for a short time. ' Boege is a very steady player and has met exceptionally strong competition. He represented Fullerton in the annual mid-winter, the Santa Monica Dudley Cup, and the Ojai Valley Tournament Olaf Hansen usually held the rank of second, losing his place only twice during the year; once to Thomas Quinn and once to Ken- neth Gai-diner. Benjamin Lupton, third, when paired with Boege formed fn-st doubles team. Lupton usually won his singles matches. Kenneth Gardiner, Thomas Quinn, Gordon McComber and Leslie Smith formed the remainder of the team. They made and held their positions by their hard and accurate playing. Prospects for next year are good; three team members will be back. The Stuelke tournament with thirty-eight players showed that some splendid material would be available in the under classes. e? The PI c I a a c s BOYS ' SWIMMING With the building of our new swimming pool a new type of sport has entered the life of F. U. H. S. in the form of aquatic sports. The students welcomed the pool with great delight for we now rank along with a few other large schools in having swimming pool in connec- tion with our physical education department. Albeit W. Dowden was secured as swimming teacher and coach. Pie came to us from the University of California, Southern Branch. He comes with quite a reputation, having had instruction under some of the best swimmers in the world. He has been a coach and swimming instructor for a number of years. He taught at Catalina last summer. Swimming is taught as a required subject in the physical educa- tion course. Each student takes one quarter of swimming each school year. The swimming team was formed early this spring with a large number of fellows out, interested in the sport. Del Davis was elected captain and with a good bunch the swimming team started to practice. About a dozen boys turned out. The varsity team was not as strong as the smaller boys ' team. The team was composed of the following members: .50 yard swim — Lannier Davis and Del Davis. 220 yards — John Reynolds and Lysle Sutton. 100 yard back stroke — Lannier Davis. Diving — Del Davis and Leonard Little. 100 yard breast stroke — Lannier Davis and Leonard Little. Medley: back, breast and crawl strokes — Leonard Little, John Reynolds, Charles Thompson. Plunge — Hilton and Knier. Relay — Lannier Davis, Del Davis, John Reynolds and Lysle Sutton. The class C team had a good turnout and had a strong team. They won nearly every meet in which they competed. Meets were held with the surrounding schools of Anaheim, Long Beach, Cal.-Tech., Huntington Park. A team was also entered in the Southern California meet at Long Beach. The swimmers on the C team are : .50 yards — Finch, Dixon, Herbst and Kisner. 50 yards breast stroke — Watkins, Poor, Clever and Williams. Diving — Watkins, Shepard, Angelo and Finch. 50 yard back stroke — Finch, Dixon, Kisner, McGee and Herbst. Relay — Finch, Herbst, Dixon and Watkins. r 3if i iiiy CLASS A CLASS C ' SIP The Pic i a d C S TRACK Our track team entered in three big medal meets during the season. The first was the Chaffey Invitational meet held March 13 at Claremont. This was won by Riverside. Fullerton made six points. Osborne won the broad jump, and Little took fourth in the 440-yard run. Our next big meet was held at Huntington Beach and was the Annual Southern Counties Meet. San Diego won, and we got 7 1-8 points. Osborne again won the broad jump and Little placed third in the one-lap event. Martin tied for fourth in the high jump. We were lucky in that we had the annual Orange County meet in Fullerton this season. Huntington Beach won the A Class meet and Anaheim the Class C affair. Fullerton placed second in both meets. Captain Osborne was high point man of the meet with a first in the broad jump, first in the 220 and a tie for first in the 100. Kroeger and Davis placed in the weights, and Martin in the high sticks. Little got a third in the 440, and Burnison a third in the 220. We had a number of practice meets with the teams of the sur- rounding schools. We defeated our old rival, Orange, by a 69 to 40 score and the Midgets beat them by a 44 to 28 score. Fred Osborne was the only Fullerton entry to qualify in the Southern California meet held in the Coliseum May 1st. He placed second in the broad jump, forcing Sullivan of Los Angeles to break the record to beat him. Osborne also placed in the state meet held at the same place a week later. He got third in his favorite event. The letter men included : Captain Fred Osborne, thi-ee-year man, state champion broad jumper and good 100 and 220 man. He has been clocked under 10.2 in the century. Little, fast 440 man (53 sec- onds) and relay runner. Martin was the high hurdler and high jump- er of the squad. He jumped consistently .5 ft. 7 or 8 inches. Davis was the school pole vaulter and also put the shot. He was good for 11 feet in a pinch. Kroeger put the shot and discus. He could put the platter around 100 feet. Burnison is a good 100 yard and furlong run- ner. He also runs on relay as fir.st man. Zuckerman, third man on the relay, was also good at the 220 or 440. McGavran was the school distance man. He ran the 880. Fellows who did not make letters but who deserve mention are: Stevens and Giddings, distance events; Merchant and C. Hezmalhalch, field events; Wiese, hurdles and Cerrera, shot. CLASS C We had a good Midget team in track and things look good for the future. The team placed second in the county meet with 20 points. The letter men are : • Redfern, Captain ; Dauser, Maxwell, Grieves and Hover. Two good runners who did not make letters, were Goodrich and Davis. CLASS A CLASS C Ed i rb h .

The girls of Fullerton Union High School do not talk, but they surely live up to participating in sports for the love of the sport. Do any of you realize that every girl who represents Fullerton on any team — be it basketball, tennis, hockey, swimming or baseball — does so without receiving any credits or units? She is registered in a regular gym class besides her sport that she partici- pates in. Does the girl who is out for sports give up things and sacrifices to be on a team? Only those girls and their coaches know how many little things they have to forget or give up, and how often they must choose between their sport and a good time in some other field. Train- ing requires sacrifice in the little things. Does the girl who is out for sports gain much that is woilh while or of value to her? Ask any senior girl who has made her Circle, Winged or Block " F " what she has gained. She has gained good, staunch, true friends; friends who are active and do things; friends who enjoy just living. She has gained for herself a strong constitution and has a body in the prime of condition. We here at Fullerton be- lieve that never should a girl ' s health be sacrificed to win a game. She has gained many good times, socially and otherwise. What girl who has taken an active part in sports here at Fullerton would give up the fun, on the field, in the pool, on the busses to and from games, at G. A. A. parties, or just enjoying a school-home at the new gym. No other outside activity can so fill a girl ' s school life. Then there are many memories of exciting moments — or of good times — that the seniors who have been active in sports will never for- get. How many times we hear the seniors and " grads " recalling the good old time after the Huntington Beach baseball game, the good " eats " and the swim, or the Long Beach play day, or hockey at River- side, or Big " F " initiation with a week end at Balboa. Memories, how we live on them. Sports are participated in by many girls of Fullerton. In every sport, basketball, tennis, baseball, swimming, hockey, volley ball, and track, we have four interclass teams and later a first and second school team. There is a chance for everyone to play and to work in some sport. There is a chance for every girl who is desirous of giving her energies and of giving up a few pleasures, to enjoy with many other girls the joys and pleasures gained in sports at F. U. H. S. Zi The Pleiades t LoGie. bo t ctr r- 1 1 FdTnDci. COACHES No matter how often people see our gym they always exclaim, " Aren ' t you proud of it? You sure- ly are a lucky bunch of kids. " Of course, we ' re proud to have such a splendid building in which to work and play, but where would all our luck be if we didn ' t have Logie, Bobby and Fatima to coach us, teach us and instill in us the high standard of honor and sportsman- ship which is their creed ? A team is of course what the players put into it, but primarily it is what the coach instills in the players. The enthusiasm and pep of the coach never fails to stimu- late the team to better playing and higher sportsmanship. While Logie coaches all sports, her chief interest is in tennis. She has sympathy, understanding and the ability to put fight into her girls. She has done much to stimu- late interest in tennis among the girls this year. Bobby — well, she ' s just " Bobby. " Full of pep and go; keen on all sports ; and the best little coach in Southern California. Need we say how much we adore her? And Fatima; just ask the dumb- bells out for swimming about the worlds of patience and the depths of knowledge she exhibits when some poor boob is afraid to dive or to put her face in the water. So you see, we not only think we ' re lucky, but we know we ' re doubly so to have with us the finest three who ever coached a bunch of girls : Miss Logan, Miss Randall and Miss Rhead. M: M G. A. A.

Although the girls won but one game, they always put up a good fight. The team was composed of a scrappy, fighting bunch, always Ruth " raring " to go. Our com- petition was of high stand- ard ; one would say so if they had seen our team in action, and Bobby was very proud of her girls. She hopes to have such a well organized team next year. Dot Dot B., our captain and guard, was one of the best players on the team. She surely did keep other schools from scoring. Anna McCormick and Vera Stude- baker were assets to the Rufus team. Both of them will be here next year. Jo Arroues was the other guard. She could always be depended upon. Al. King, our sprinter, always got the ball from the start. Wiggles Eloise, the other jumping center, was " Johnnie on the spot " when it came to getting the ball. Babe R., Wiggles and Rufus were a puzzle to Bobby. They Red played in " spells. " It al- ways kept Bobby guessing as to who should start the game. It ' s nice to keep a coach guessing some- times, though. T h P I c I (I a e s Tiny, our little midget, doesn ' t care if she isn ' t as tall as other people, she can hurl Al " casabas " by the dozen. Dot. H., our other forward, saved us many games by her tossing. Mary Ella Poor, better known as Red, knows how to handle a basket- ball in times of distress. Last, but not least, our Dot faithful freshman, Ruth Coots. Ruthie can shoot baskets now with her eyes closed. What will she do when she ' s a senior? The squad was a splen- Anna did example of F. U. H. S. spirit. Each member was working for the other and the team- work was great. Eloise Nothing helps to break up cliques and to b ring the members of different cla-sses together on the same footing as participa- tion in a common sport. All Tiny the classes were represent- ed on the first team, and girls of all ages were brought together. Bobby Randall was coach this year, and she surely did her bit toward making the Babe team what it was — a good squad of Fulicrton " Squaws.

They were a peppy bunch, always knowing when and where to place the ball, and the majority of these girls will make up the first squad next year. A second team is a hard squad to organize in F. U. H. S. None of the girls want to come out, but this year they came out to practice regularly and we are certainly proud of them. It was their training that made them such a strong team, full of the Fullerton fight and spoi-tsmanship. The players were as follows: Lucille Brawley, Captain, Forward ; Ila Crowe, Irene Stives, For- wards ; Nellie Estrella, Wilma Stanley, Guards ; Rowena Byrumm, Jumping Center; Georgene VonDettum and Marcy Arroues, Guards and Running Center as they were needed.

With the careful coaching of Miss Rhead we were able to win all but two of our games. One was a tie with Santa Ana, and the other was with the second team of Fullerton. The first game was with Orange. Velva Sullivan and Vera Stull, our snappy forwards, were always ready to make some points. Mildred Dorsey and Lucille Williams, our other two forwards, were always ready to play when they were needed. The guards, Doris Wolfe, Mildred Krebs and Mable Evans, always showed their wonderful work by keeping the ball from the opponents ' goal. Helen Quinn, jumping center, was captain. Maria Wetton and Cornelia Randall showed their " pep " by their active work as running centers. Dorothy Little and Dorothy May were always on hand to assist when called upon. Helen Quinn, ' 27. [ W m m F r h , » | i i " •5 VOLLEY BALL Another sport was added to the girls ' athletic program at Fuller- ton High this year; namely, Volley Ball. Seventeen girls made the team and found the game to be interest- ing and full of pep. Helen Henigan, who was elected manager and captain, matched games with Whittier, Garden Grove, and Huntington Beach, the two latter having substituted Volley Ball for Basket Ball this season. These games wei ' e closely contested and resulted in victories for F. U. H. S. Here ' s hoping that the Volley Ball games will receive better sup- port from the Student Body next year than they have in the past. The following girls composed the team: Lillian Bastady, Corrine Bush, Edith Cantield, Kathryn Darr, Margaret Dean, Juanita Frazee, Esther Hartman, Helen Henigan, Nancy Hezmalhalch, Gladys Holston, Leona Jackson, Florence Johnson, Helen Klose, Edna McCoy, Ruby Miller, Bernice Petty, Doris Tennant, F Zil Ilertoii O 5 5 2 5 5 HOCKEY Analieim 3 Orange Santa Ana 2 Anaheim 4 Orange Santa Ana 3 Hockey was very eagerly looked forward to this year by all of the girls. It started with a bang and the same spirit was kept through- out the whole season. Lady Luck seemed to have cast her favor upon the Juniors, for they came out victorious in the interclass games; the Sophomores second, Seniors third, and Freshmen last. Bobby Randall, oui- coach, had lots of good material to pick her first team from and she seems to have succeeded, for they won all their games with the exception of Anaheim ' s. The girls didn ' t seem to have the old fight that day and so were defeated. The games were exciting and in some, exceptionally good playing was done. Babe Kothaei-mel, our captain, certainly filled her position well, and her eye caught any weakness in the team. The girls on the (iisl squad were: Wiggles Wagner, Babe Roth- aermel, Jo Arroues, Anna McCormick, Ruth Palmer, Ruth Nonamaker, Tiny Yorba, Jo Muhic, Ha Crowe, Marcy Arroues, Nancy Hezmalhalch.

Our first opponent was Anaheim, and as all the players were ex- cited nobody settled down until the third quarter when Anaheiiii scored, making the score 1 to 0. In the fourth quarter Fullerton fought hard and ended the game at 1 to 1. The next game was with Orange, and the next with Santa Ana. We won both of these by close scores. We played each of our games over again, but only won from Anaheim by 3 to 1 ; losing to Orange and Santa Ana by one point. The following girls made up the second squad : Forwards, Velva Sullivan, Olive Nay, Marjorie Lucas, Doris Wolfe, Dorothy Little; halfbacks. May Smith, Bertha Smith, and Helen Quinn, Captain ; full- backs, Rowene Byrum, Ruby Miller. Substitutes: Cornelia Randall, Rosemary Hurley, Gladys Holston, Helen Lang, Edna Griffin, Geor- gene Von Dettum, Marie Wetton, Edith Canfield and Helen Klose. Helen Quinn ' 27. -: ' y C3 SWIMMING Although swimming is a new sport this year, we lind a great in- terest being shown in it. There is some very promising team material among the girls which if given a chance for development should ac- complish big things. Proficiency in swimming is not gained in one year. It takes long and constant training to develop line form and speed. Although the girls had been swimming since the first of the year, it was not until Play Day, March 15, that they had an opportunity to display their merits. Then, the small team composed of lone Wagner, diving; Ruth Nonamaker, dashes and diving; Doris Wolfe, dashes; Babe Rothaermel and Marie Cline, form swimming, took fourth place in the meet. In the spring meets the girls will really have a chance to show what they can do. Those who will represent F. U. H. S. are : Ruth Nonamaker, Leonore Wildman, Evelyn Harvey, Doris Wolfe, Kathryn Darr and lone Wagner. While comparatively little has been done in team work, swim- ming has been popular throughout the year. Every girl in school has had at least one quarter of swimming instruction, so we feel that a good beginning has been made. Our pool is one of the finest in South- ern California. With such a fine plunge as an incentive, swimming should become an increasingly popular sport at F. U. H. S. e? The Pic i a d e s TENNIS The girls ' tennis season for 1925-26 has one the whole been very successful. Tennis was an all-year sport for the first time this year and the girls engaged in competitive matches with Southern California high schools during both the fall and spring semesters. Many practice matches were held during the fall semester with the different Orange County schools : Anaheim, Santa Ana, Tustin and Orange, and all of these practice matches were easily won by our girls. In the spring semester the matches were held with the larger sc hools: Long Beach, Alhambra, Huntington Park, Pasadena and Chaffey. Most of these matches were also decided victories for our teams. The Fullerton girls played many more matches during this year than ever before and were victorious in at least 9.5 per cent. This is undoubtedly a very high percentage of victories. Besides competing with other schools, the girls have placed in all of the big tennis tournaments. Dorothy Bielefeldt and Dorothy Hete- brink entered in the invitational meet held on our courts during the Thanksgiving vacation. Fullerton was victorious in the Orange County tournament held here March 23-24, winning a total of four points out of a possible eight. The other four points were divided between Ana- heim and Santa Ana. Dorothy Bielefeldt and Dorothy Hetebrink took first and second singles, Marjorie Lucas third and Georgene Von Det- tum fifth. Mary Ella Poor and Alma King, second doubles, with Louise West and Sarah Bornstein, third doubles, also competed in this tourna- ment. Dorothy Bielefeldt and Marjorie Lucas played first and second smgles in the big Southern California Tournament at Chaff-ey, May 15 and again in the Second Annual Invitational Tournament at Fullerton May 29. Mary Ella Poor and Al King were entered as second doubles in the Southern California. The girls who represented Fullerton on the courts this year were- Dorothy Bielefeldt, Dorothy Hetebrink, Marjorie Lucas, Hazel King ' Mary Ella Poor, Alma King, Georgene Von Dettum, Mable Colburn ' Vera Stull, Mary McGill, Louise West, Sarah Bornstein, Anna McCor- mick and Neda Roeschlaub. GIRLS ' FIRST TEAM TENNIS GIRLS ' SECOND TEAM TENNIS m m r zy GIRLS ' BASEBALL Baseball, the girls ' last sport of the year, was supported by one of the best aggregations of peppy girls that has ever turned out. The girls were eager to practice, and it was due to this that the interclass games were successful. Baseball is played differently this year, than it was in previous years. The girls are using out-door rules with fifty-foot bases and over- hand pitching, making baseball more interesting than ever. Our catchers, Lurli Middleton and Dorothy Bornstein, certainly connect with the swift balls that are pitched to them. They will be back next year. Ruth Coots, the mighty hurler, has frightened many. Lucille Brawley, the other pitcher, does not pitch such a swift ball but they are quite hard to hit. Marcy Arroues and Jo Muhic change about on first base. Both are dependable players. Babe R. and Studie are new on first base. They hardly ever miss a ball, which makes it impossible for the coach to decide who should play. Jo Arroues, third base, has played this position for four years. She covers third well. Ruby Miller, the other third, also is a good catcher. She is one of the heaviest hitters on the team. Wiggles, our shortstop, lives up to the name of her position. She is short and always stops the ball. Velva Sullivan, a freshman, runs Wiggles a good second. The outfield is guarded by Tiny, Hisako Oba and Ila Crowe. They all work well together. Tiny and 11a have had more experience but Oba is not far behind. In the Tustin game Fullerton won, 11-7, while in the Garden Grove clash we won 28-8. e? o f J o LruLniJ September signs of their week-end Lake Senior Socks organize to show Friday, the 11th.
