CHRISTMAS 1932 - Garfield Junior High School, Berkeleif, California 5 3n Eememfarance Hark — ivhat say they} — rumored fears and sighs, And bended heads and whispering and tears; Grave news has come to silence mirth and joy, And shoiv a glimpse of God ' s inevitable; To teach gay youth a lesson all must learn — Life ' s quiet ceasing in the arms of death. That tranquil rest, ere noontide ' s glotc was past. Has laid its peaceful hand upon the heart Of one we know, and rev ' rence, and respect. Our teacher, with a constancy serene. Has crossed the Great Divide, to meet the King. Lament and weep, that nevermore our eyes Shall light, in daily pleasure at the sight Of one who guided us, and ivas our friend. Oh, mourn the early loss of one we loved, But, through your tears, forget not gratitude That ive have happy memories of her. The e ' er-recurring thoughts, of pleasant days That are forever gone, yet ever nigh. Locked in your mem ' ry ' s golden treasury. Lament, and yet be glad that painlessly, In perfect peace, she left our ivorld of strife; Rejoice, that she has triumphed o ' er the grave. And now she liveth, more abundantly — Oh, shout triumphal anthems for she lives! — Frances Colby, High Nine. PRINCIPAL ' S MESSAGE ! With the opening of the new semester there will be missing at Garfield the faces of one hundred seventy-three boys and girls who are now our most prominent and act ive members. They will have taken the upward step that will place them in the ranks of the alumni, and will bring that great body of enterprising and capable young men and women to a grand total of four thousand seven hundred eighty-nine. Our Garfield family is never too large to prevent our taking a deep interest in the welfare of our former students. We bid Godspeed to our graduates of December, 1932. You have been a co-operative, ambitious, satisfactory class. May the happy holiday season which follows your Garfield graduation be an introduction to a happy life of wholesome accomplishment, service and satisfaction. — D. L. Hennessey. MESSAGE FROM G. S. A. PRESIDENT For the past semester I have had the honor of being President of the Garfield Student Association, that splendid organization which has helped to make Garfield the well-conducted school it is today. It has been a great privilege to serve the school in this capacity, and I sincerely express thanks to the teachers and students for th ir whole-hearted cooperation. I believe that many worth while things have been accomplished, and I hope that my successor will find the position of G. S. A. President as pleasant and satis- factory as I have found it. To the next G. S. A. President I wish all the luck in the world. I know he will strive to do his best for Garfield. For the rest of the graduates as well as myself I regretfully say good- bye. Yet we are happy, for we have just completed another lap in that great race, in which we all secured a good start, and in which we are all winners. We will always look back with pleasure to the three happy years that we spent at Garfield. — Jack Willis. FACULTY Hennessey, D. L . Principal Cannon, Ma Belle Secretary Archer, Mrs. Kate w.

Odom, Joseph, Custodian Morse, Blanche Hoag, Jack, Custodian THE DADS ' CLUB AND THE P.-T. A. The Dads ' Club have had a very successful year. October four- teenth they gave a dance in the cafeteria and had some refreshments. The Parent-Teacher Association entertained The Dads ' Club November ninth. Also there was the school orchestra, A Capella Club, and the Boys ' Glee Club. The Dads ' Club gave a theatre party November third and fourth at the United Artists. The name of the play was " The Cabin in the Cot- ton. " It was a success and the proceeds went for a payment on the bleach- ers. The officers of the club are Mr. Sandner, President; Mr. Ray, Vice- President; Mr. Williams, Secretary. The P.-T. A. has always been a dependable and helpful organization. This term its numerous activities have aided the school more than ever. The booth which they had on Library Day was very profitable. The Stu- dent Aid Fund has increased a great deal and many of the needy have been helped. The meetings have been carried on by the officers, who have served ably. The volley ball teams were given a bean feed by them which was enjoyed by all those present. An entertaining party was the closing event of a very full term. The students wish to thank the P.-T. A. for their assistance and helpfulness in making Garfield a better school. — LaVerne Burgess, High Nine. Adams, Velma Agathos, Frank Ammerman, Lois Ammonette, K.

" what an inspiration those four words can be! They welcomed and challenged one hundred sixty young people to a new life, three years ago. We were surrounded by new things; new studies, teachers, new friends, and activities, new temptations, opportunities, and freedom. And we set out to master this environment. We had the example of the older students, holding offices, fulfilling responsibilities. They had done it. So could we! The faculty guided and encouraged us. New honors chal- lenged. Activities beckoned. The overcoming of temptations and obstacles strengthened us. " You can do it! " And we did! Today, we look forward to the future, wondering what it will be, away from Garfield. It will be just what we make it! When we bid farewell to these happy days, let us look forward, not with fear, but faith. Face life buoyantly. Fight your battles bravely. Faith, courage, and the will to win are heritages of youth, and they are yours. Keep pure and unsullied the standards and ideals which you defend. God will help and reward you. May the memory of Garfield and those who trust in you help to spur you on. Go forth. Dare, and achieve! " You can do it! " — The Editor.

This is an un- usually high percentage. There are many others who were members of the Honor Society in Seventh and Eighth Grades, but succumbed to the dragon Algebra when in t he Low Ninth. Probably several of those will find themselves again on the Honor Roll at the close of this term. We hope so. A star is given to a student for each semester he is a member of the Honor Society. As Low Sevens are not eligible, five stars is the greatest number that can be given. The following is our High Nine Honor Roll: FIVE STARS Lois Ammerman, Peggy Bailey, June Bofinger, Jack Brodeick, Frank Clymer, Frances Colby, Betty Currier, Haddee Dewey, Janet Foreman, Mary Ann Gatewood, Brandon Howell, Phyllis Johnson, Kathryn Jones, Mayola Korhonen, Peggy Kramer, Dorothy Larmour, Douglas McCon- nell, Elsie McCulloch, Erma Ruth McDonald, Hazel McKee, Ruth Moses, Harukoda, Lois Sandner, Nancy Whitlock, Marjorie Wind, Lois Zurilgen. FOUR STARS Kay Ammonette, Jack Barnett, LaVerne Burgess, Robert Duttle, Olive Graham, Jane Malmgren, Warren Merrill, Robert Petersen, Mildred Stahl, Lillian Hageman. THREE STARS Howard Coates, Georgene Drew, Florence Dunn, Helen Hink, Marian MulhoUand, Alfred Myatt. TWO STARS Herbert Bolstad, Leonard Ford, Isabel Hinckley, Jane Jenkins, Luella Johnson, Fumiko Kondo, Edward Prosser, Odette Stuart. ONE STAR Russell Andrews, Kathryn Ebey, John Fontenrose, Rhoda Potter, George Scheibner, Jean Somers, William Stahr, Mary Westphal. THE HIGH NINE HONOR SOCIETY BANQUET On the evening of November tenth a very successful and en- joyable banquet was given for the High Nine members of the Honor So- ciety. It began at six-thirty with a turkey dinner, during which the dance orchestra and their soloist entertained the diners. After the dinner a num- ber of former Garfield students were introduced and several made speeches. Mr. MacDonald, the father of the G. S. A. Secretary, spoke also. Then a skit and a short play were given. The skit was composed of imitations of some of the teachers, one of which was an imitation of Mr. Hennessey given by Brandon Howell. While the tables were being removed to permit danc- ing the guests were taken to the auditorium to see the pictures taken on Library Day. They then returned to the cafeteria where dancing was en- joyed for the rest of the evening. — Olive Graham, High Nine. G. S. A.

King Sun ' s lAnnouncement The king of the sky sends heralds forth, To announce his coming each morn. First come the servants in blue, ivhite and gray, To tell us the new day is born. Then come the fine ladies in rose, pink and gold Their skirts trailing out o ' er the sky. They seem so fine, with their rainboiv-hued goivns. Those beautiful ladies on high. Next come the king ' s private messengers. They ' re the sunbeams in yellow and gold. Then comes the king of the sky himself. The sun in all glory! Behold! — Betty Lou Howard, Low Eight. JINX A GROUP OF AIRPLANES Circled the airport. On the ground sat James Wilson, U. S. Army. He was speaking to a captain nearby about the beautiful precision of the manoeuvers of a cer- tain biplane. He said, " Say, Captain, I think I ' ll take that ship up tomor- row; I sure like the way it handles. " " I agree with you, Wilson, " was the rep ly, " her performance is mar- velous, but perhaps you should know she is a jinx ship; every man who flies her dies within a year. " " All foolish superstition, " returned Wilson, " I ' m going to take old X-13 up tomorrow. " " Have your own way, I ' ll not interfere, " answered the captain, " but I think it ' s a jinx and yet, have your own way. " So next day Wilson took up the X-13 as he had planned, and he was delighted with her performance. When he came down, he sought out the captain and said to him, " Say, captain, that ship may be a jinx, but it flies better than anything I ever saw and I ' m going to keep on flying her. " " Ah, but she ' ll get you in the end — that ' s her motto, you know, I always kill my flier. ' " " Enough of such foolishness! Really you get on my nerves, " said the irritated Wilson. " Get on your nerves? Well, it may, " replied his companion " but to change the subject, how do you like that new gas we ' re using? " " Fine, " was the very bored answer. Then one day he (Wilson) had a change of heart. His nerve was shat- tered. He feared the plane that had been his favorite, and he was in a ter- rible state of apprehension and fear. In fact, he even quit the air corps of which he had been a very enthusi- astic member. His nerve was completely shattered and he shunned any- thing with any risk to it. It was all because of that jinx ship. But, after ten months in this condition, he decided that if he was going to die, he was going to die, and once more joined the Air Force. He even went back to his old plane, the X-13. Then one day while he was warming up his deadly craft, she began to miss, and then backfire. " Just cold, " he said to himself, and gave her the gun. Wilson flew high that day; higher than usual. At a great height, his motor sputtered and then died. He thought of the jinx. Suddenly, the captain ' s voice came through the radio, " Your ship is on fire; take to your chute. " Wilson made all haste to do just that, but in his frantic thaste he pulled the ring too soon, and his chute caught in the tail surfaces of his plane. He shrieked in agony. So died the only man who ever flew this jinx and lived a year, and he Hved just three hundred sixty-six days. — Loren Caffee, Low Nine. {NO SHANGHAI DURING THE WAR Shanghai is divided into four main sections, the International settle- ment, the Chinese city, and Chapei. We were refugees in the French settlement within a mile and a half of the firing line. One night a bomb landed on the street on which we lived, but we were not in as much danger as one might think, for Japan knew if they started fighting in the International settlement the other countries of the world would be involved. The rattle of machine guns, the rumble of cannon reached our ears as we sat in the evening reading the newspaper or wondering what would happen next. Hundreds upon hundreds of the Chinese that lived in Chapei were fleeing into the International settlement for safety. The streets were thronged with people using all modes of travel, conveying them and their few belongings to safety. At ten o ' clock a curfew blew. Anyone found in the streets after that hour spent the night in jail. Every night for a solid month we could hear the bombs, shells, and machine guns, while every once in a while a French tank or armored car would go by our door with guns bristling patroling the streets of the French settlement. The ruin caused by the war was terrible, but that is another story. — David L. Weeks, Low Eight. T)ajfodil Deep in the woodland glade, Close by a rill, Sheltered in darkest shade. Blooms daffodil. Doom to Persephone Plucked she your bloom, Tool of Fate ' s destiny Lured by perfume. — Betty Stearns, Low Nine. A WILD RIDE Late one Saturday afternoon, on the fourth floor of a large de- partment store in New York City, a certain Miss Sophronia Jessup, amid throngs of pushing customers, suddenly happened to look at the store clock and found, to her dismay, that it was four-thirty. She remembered, still more to her consternation, that by five o ' clock she was expected to be at a hospital several miles distant to visit a sick friend. Since visiting hours closed at five, she hastily gathered up her purchases and quickly made her way to the elevators, only to see the top of one, downward bound, just disappearing. While she was waiting, another one passed, full to its capa- city, and not stopping to open its doors. In another minute, a white light twinkled down at the other end of the long row. She hurried to this and was about to step in when she heard the elevator starter say, " Going up; going up. " Her third attempt in getting an elevator, however, was suc- cessful. Down to the first floor in the crowded elevator, she rode, and you may be sure Miss Sophronia was the first to alight. By sheer force she man- aged to elbow her way through the throng of shoppers and squirm out the front door. She immediately summoned a taxi and her words to the driver were: " To Francis Hospital. Be quick, my man; most urgent. " (Miss So- phronia always spoke in sharp, jerky phrases.) And then the long re- membered ride began. Up and down hills and through tunnels, the cab raced, until a loud siren sounded directly behind them, and, in a second, a motorcycle, bearing an officer of the law, drew up beside them. " Shure an it ' s like a race horse you ' re goin ' . Why the speed, me man? " asked a huge, burly Irish policeman. " Oh, " said the driver, " I gotta very sick lady in the car here. I ' m atakin ' her to the hospital. " " Oh, well, ef thot be the case, nobody kin ever say Dan O ' Mera hin- dered any sick person from bem ' took to the hospital. Come along, then; let ' s git goin ' . " They started on their way again, going at a more terrific speed than before, the car careening so at times that it was nothing short of a miracle that it didn ' t turn over. Finally, Miss Sophronia in her fright, began to bang on the window which separated the driver ' s seat from the back seat, trying frantically to ask the driver what in the world the policeman was doing, going in front of them and blowing the siren, and why they were going so fast, ' ' hen the driver did loo back in answer to these frantic gesticulations, all he saw was a white, agonized face which spurred him on to increased speed. It was then that Miss Sophronia became hysterical and famted. W hen they reached the hospital, going straight to the emergency en- trance, attendants rushed Miss Sophronia up to the operating room where she recovered from her famt. She had a difficult time explaining that she came only to visit a friend. — Patricia J. Parrish, High Seven.

Pa grew to be quite fond o ' him, Ma loved him on the sly; Sis showed him off to all her friends, While pride glowed in her eye. One day he gamboled on the tracks, A train came whizzin ' past; I screamed to him in terror, But poor ' ' Chris " had breathed his last! Sis locked the door of her bedroom, And her eyes ivere red, that night; Pa couldn ' t read his paper, And complained of the awful light. Ma cried ivhile gettin ' supper. The smoke was fierce, she said. But I missed him more ' n they did, ' Cause he slept with me in bed. — Jane Malmgren, High Nine. MY AUTOBIOGRAPHY— " GOOD-BYE " I TRACE MY ANCESTRY back to the English, As a matter of fact, I was hving when the Mayflower sailed. You human beings who boast of having ancestors who came over on it have nothing on me. I came over on it my- self. When I was a boy, I didn ' t like my long name, " God-be-with-you, " so I shortened it to " Good-bye. " Much better, don ' t you think? My father and mother, " Fare-well " and " Adieu, " came from fine blood. Although I am used generally now, I was known by my old name until I was nearly a young man. My mother, " Adieu " descended from the French. My father, " Fare- well, " descended from the Anglo-Saxon. He used to have another name like mine only it was " Fare-you-well, " which means " go-you-well, " but he, like me, changed it. I guess it runs in the family. I think I shaU have to change my name again, or name my son, " So Long, " " See-you-later, " " Toodle-loo, " or some one of these slang names by which you call me. This would be a disgrace to my family, as we have permitted only good blood to enter it, and I fear this would mar our good record. I would rather be called by my old name, " God-be-with-you, " than any of the afore mentioned names. Take pity on a poor, abused, word! — Mary E. Rieber, Loic Nine. spring in the Embryo Feathery green tree, Background against the dijfident blue of the sky. Plebeian sparroivs chirp coarsely. A sprig of greenery pokes shy around the red brick luall, Clothing the soft red brick, Looping loosely around it. And entwines it, lovingly. The air hums absently, Considering abstract problems. A bird of doubtful origin and dusty, bedraggled feathers, Lights upon a telephone wire. Another darts beside him; They chat sociably. Then fly erratically aiuay. The air hums, Takes to itself rare perfume. Becomes laden ivith nectar, drugged with incense. The sun ivarms everything — . — Joel Lee, High Nine. NEVER AGAIN " Say, have you ever ridden in an aeroplane, Gertie? No? Well, take my advice and don ' t do it! Why, it ' s worth your life, such as it is. I went for a ride in one of those infernal bird affairs yesterday morning and have just now gotten up. I thought I would collapse if I dared to trust myself on my feet even for one minute. When we were over the lake I walked up to our pilot. I asked him what would happen if something went wrong in the engine. He said to me, ' Lady, we ' d never hear of you again. ' And then he said. And if a wing should fall off, you ' d never live to see my beaming countenance again. ' Then he made an awful grimace at me and told me to ' go sit down, ' I might fall out of the window! Imagine! Speak- ing to me like that! After that he proceeded to do a lot of summersaults with that bird of his. I was on the floor on my face half of the time! See my nose? It ' s all black and blue. What a man! " — Phyllis Wisecarver, High Nine. THE MAN WITH THE BLACK SATCHEL Edward C. Johnson was spending a week with his uncle, Mr. John J. Brinkwater, at his home in Fairview Highlands. Ed walked down the stairs toward the garden, but he stopped before he was halfway down. He heard a man say, " Be sure not to let any one know about this. Remember to be here at 9 : i 5 o ' clock this evening. Mr. Brinkwater will not be here then. " He then saw a mysterious man with a black satchel leave the grounds. When he saw his uncle alone the next time, he told him what he had heard and seen. " Well, it looks like someone is planning to rob us, " said Mr. Brink- water, " but I never would have thought that Henry would do such a thing. " Ed commented, " Do you think we can go to the Brown ' s and then come back and catch the robber in the act? " " My friend, Mr. Burns, the detective, may be able to help us in this. " That evening they went ot the Brown ' s house, but they did not stay. They and Mr. Burns went to the house next door to Mr. Brinkwater ' s house. They waited till they were very weary. Finally, the butler came out of the door and looked around. He then signaled to the man with the black satchel who went into the house. Later, Mr. Burns, Ed, and his uncle quietly went into the house. As they went up the stairs they heard a bang — the sound of a heavy piece of metal falling on the floor. Mr. Burns, with gun drawn, stepped into the room. Mr. Brinkwater and Ed followed him. To their amazement the butler was standing by the door very much startled. The other man had just removed part of the floor heater and was reaching down into it. The black satchel was lying by his side with a crowbar, wrench, and several other tools in it. " How can you explain this? " demanded Mr. Brinkwater. " I — er — ah — well, it was this way. I dropped your favorite pipe in the floor heater. I didn ' t want you to know about it so I had the plumber come when you weren ' t here. " — Fred Wood, Low Nine.

It reached the first line breakers And mingling in the foam It nestled in the curling crests, Where at last it found its home. — Jane Armitage, High Seven. BELIEVE IT OR NOT! Gone! Gone! The words raced through my brain hke a cyclone. With icy fingers I clutched the bed for support. My throat was dry; I almost choked. " They can ' t be, " the words stumbled out of my mouth and formed the sentence. Over and over again I repeated it while the real truth kept pounding in my head hke a hammer. Once more I glanced at the small, black, leather box, but only the smooth, white satin lining of the box greeted my searching eye. It was true! The fear that had seized me only five minutes before had given way to reality. The jewels were stolen! After regaining my composure I searched frantically in every nook and cranny in a vain attempt to recover the beautiful diamond necklace. The search was for naught! I could scarcely comprehend this astounding acknowledgement. I stumbled blindly out of the cabin to get a breath of fresh, salt air. The motion of the boat sickened me. I felt giddy. I swayed mechanically as I groped my way to the rail. A small, dark ob- ject darted across my path causing me to stumble. The catastrophe, which might have happened, didn ' t occur as a Mr. Randall, a passenger on the ship, passing by at the crucial moment, steadied my arm and aided me to regain my footing. Mr. Randall gallantly tipped his hat and pointedly smiled at me. I looked around to see what had caused the disturbance. To my astonishment I saw the retreating figure of my pet monkey, Jocket, disappear around a corner. I could not suppress a giggle as I recalled the timely appearance of my benefactor. Then I recalled his apparent joviality. Something mysterious lurked beneath his mask of friendliness. This little incident, unimportant as it was, brought me down to earth with a bang and left me with a mind clear for action. The next most logical thing to do was to confide in Captain Whalton, explain the entire situation, and take his advice as to the next step to recover my stolen jewels. Tremblingly I walked up the stairs and knocked on a door. Large gilded letters, forming the word Captain, stood in sharp contrast with the heavy oak door. In answer to my knock Captain Whalton admitted me to his office. Captain Whalton was a large, portly man, having iron gray hair and a moustache. His Irish blue eyes were shaded by gray, thick eyebrows. The impression was altogether favorable. After relating my complete story. Captain Whalton ' s face relaxed into a quizzical smile. " I shall certainly do my utmost to solve this most baffling mystery, " again his smile broadened. " Now this Mr. Randall is but an acquaintance of mine. I have never had any reason to mistrust him; however, he will be closely watched. I deem it advisable to let the matter be kept from the public until we have a more definite light on the situation. The remainder of today will be spent to good advantage by my detectives. I am quite sure that your jewels will soon be located. In the event that they are not, however, we shall be right on the job, " his blue eyes twinkled, his delightful smile spread across his face, lining it with merry wrinkles. Confident and hoping that my worries would soon be over, I returned to my cabin with a somewhat buoyant step. Opening the door, Icarelesslv glanced into the room. My face froze; then the ice broke. I cannot recall how long I stood in the doorway and laughed. Jocket was sitting on my dressing table coyly powdering her face and daintily fingering the beautiful diamond necklace around her neck. Elaine West, Low Nine. The " Butterfly As down the garden patio I strolled, I sail ' upon tloe wall, A little loome of fairy mould, Wloich lay, so still and small. So day by day I watched it th ere, Until at last I saw ' . Instead of ugly greyish ivalls, A thing to fill with awe! A butterfly with painted wings. Upon a leaf nearby.

It is early in the morning and there is a slight crispness in the air as the sun peeks over the mesa and illumines the painted landscape with its golden luster. A lone giant cactus looms against the yellow fringed sky like a tall monu- ment to the supreme stillness of the desert. The ground is rocky and here and there is dotted with sagebrush and other hardy plants. In the distance lies a range of barren purple colored mountains tipped by a crown of orange where the sun ' s rays strike. A sky of deep blue fading to yellow-orange at the horizon blends with the range. High up in the heavens floats a vulture, a gliding scavenger of the desert, never seeming to flap his white tipped wings. There is a faint rustling among the parched bushes and a little lizard, who had previously been sunning itself, scampers off into a murky crevice in the rocks among the bushes. Wafted softly by the morning air a song is brought to our ears. It is a cowboy song and sure enough a mounted figure is seen approaching and pouring out his soul in jolly tunes. We see him more clearly and notice the bright colors of his outfit. He wends his way onward and, turning, is soon lost to view but his song is still ringing in our ears. It is still haunting us as we turn thoughtf uly back to our cabin. In a few minutes all is again still on the desert. The sun rises higher, shortening the shadows and casting a glare on the surrounding landscape. Such is the desert; the always changing, rest- less scenery that strangely produces the opposite effect on all that gaze upon it. — Brandon Howell, High Nine. 1 Farewell, Old Year The bells are chiming twelve o ' clock, It is your death knell that we hear; And soon will come the New Year ' s knock, Faretuell, old year.

A new-born heir ivill take your place, Your time to die is drawing near. I see death written on your face. Farewell, old year. — Lilian Hennessey, High Eight. THE MYSTERY OF THE BELFRY One bleak, January day a traveler was passing through the deserted town of Dublin. Suddenly, the sound of a bell echoed through the morning air. The traveler, knowing no one lived within miles, vowed he wouldn ' t go from Dublin until he ' d discovered the answer to this baffling mystery. The traveler, Jerry MacDonald, went to what was once the town hall where he knew the bell was located. He could find no clue there so he de- cided to stay near the bell day and night. In the night, Jerry had an inspiration. He thought it was only the wind ringing the bell. Suddenly the bell began ringing. " The mystery is solved, " he cried as he rushed up the stairs to the belfry. On his way, he noted the wind was from the east, but much to his surprise, when he got to the belfry, the openings were on the north and south! In the afternoon when he went to the nearest town for food he in- quired for someone who could tell him about Dublin. The city council directed him to the mayor ' s house and told him to ask for the mayor ' s son, Richard. He found the mayor ' s house to be of colonial style. It was a roomy house and richly furnished. A few minutes after he had rung the bell he found, confronting him, a handsome boy about sixteen. The head butler, he thought. But no, he did not wear the butler ' s uniform. Then he must be Richard. Jerry explained that he wanted to know as much as possible about Dublin. Richard surprised him greatly when he said, " We ' ll go there now, and I ' ll explain things. " After a pause, he said, " You don ' t mind going in my fliver, do you? " " No, certainly not, " replied Jerry. In a few minutes they were on their way. Richard opened the con- versation with, " I used to go there every day to see if I could find the jewels. " " What jewels? Perhaps they have something to do with the mystery. " By this time they were jumping up the stairs of the belfry. " Listen, the bell ' s ringing, " ejaculated Jerry. " And look, " he con- tinued, as they got to the top of the stairs, " the bell is ringing the opposite way from the openings! " When the excitement was over, Richard began explaining: " My great-grandfather was mayor of Dublin in its height. One night his wife ' s jewels were stolen. They hunted and hunted, but they never found the jewels. Gradually the people of the village went elsewhere and my great-grandfather left, too, and that ' s the story. " Jerry said, " Thanks, " and then started swinging the bell back and forth. Suddenly something fell and four objects ran across the floor. " Rats, " exclaimed Richard, " I wonder what fell? " But Jerry wasted no time and by then he had seen the whole story. " Richard, come here. I guess your great-grandfather ' s jewels are found. The rats made a nest in the bell with them and covered them with straw. " " But how did they get the jewels? " asked Richard. " The rats took them, my boy. When they ran back and forth the bell rang. " So the " Mystery of the Belfry " was solved. — Elinor Skimmings, High Seven. Campfire The sparks from our fire Flew into the night, Up to the tops of the trees.

THE RESCUE The campfire cast shadows on the faces of the men, as they Hstened intently to the stories of Jim, the scout. A ringing shot broke the silence of the dark forest. This was followed by several more. The men jumped up quickly and covered their fire. Jim knew by the sound that the shots came from the place where old man Nel- son had moved his traps. The men crept quietly along the shadows, wading the river edge. To their dismay they saw in the clearing the cabin bursting into flames. They were too late. The Indians had set the fire and killed the old trapper. From one of the bushes near the edge of the river, they heard a muffled scream. There Jim found a little, thirteen-year-old girl crying. He lifted her gently in his arms and they rode with his comrades at a rapid pace. " I ' ll save you or I ' ll die, " Jim whispered to the frightened child. The Indians were pursuing them. They rode all that night. The next morning they could stop with safety, for the Indians had been left far behind. " No, certainly not, " replied Jerry. In a few minutes they were on their way. Richard opened the con- versation with, " I used to go there every day to see if I could find the jewels. " " What jewels? Perhaps they have something to do with the mystery.

Jim often recalle dthe midnight rescue of his little Hazel-eye and wished that he might see her again. Dreamily he sat on the mossy bank when he heard the dipping of a paddle and, looking up, he saw a maiden standing in the middle of a birch canoe with a rifle aimed at him. He took off his hat and said to her: " Drop your rifle, maiden. If you don ' t mind, I ' m not your game. " She came ashore and recognized her preserver of many years ago. Once more she felt strong arms around her. She, recalling that wild night, whispered, " I ' ll save you or I ' ll die. " — Lucile Dickson, Loil Nine, JOHNNIE LEARNS TO FLY " Hi, Johnnie! How ' s you and your airplane comin ' along, huh? " Johnnie had heard that so often in the past month he didn ' t know what to do. Of course, everybody in town knew of his ambition to learn to fly an airplane and, of course, they had to tease him about it. Well, he thought, they had good reason to, because he ' d never seen an airplane except ' way up in the air flying along. Of course, he had read all about airplanes in books and he felt he could almost fly one right off. It was a bright sunshiny day. Way off in the sky, Johnny saw the daily passenger plane. He was so used to seeing it pass over he could almost tell the time by it. But this time there seemed to be something wrong with the engine. Pop, pop, bang! The engine stopped. It seemed to have some- thing wrong with it. Nearby there was a large vacant lot that did not have any ruts or bumps in it. To this Johnnie ran and began to wave his arms about wildly. Luckily the pilot saw him. The plane landed and the pilot got out and began to examine the engine. Johnnie ran over to him. " Thanks, buddy; you ' re a pal, " said the pilot. " Glad I could help, " replied Johnnie. " Oh, say kid; come over here a minute, will yuh, please? " " Sure, what is it? " asked Johnnie. " Do you know anything about airplanes? " " A little, " acknowledged Johnnie. " Well, then, hsten. Come over here, see? Now put one hand here and the other one there, and pull, but don ' t get in the way of the propeller, " " I see. This way? " " Yeh. " The pilot jumped into the cockpit. The motor roared. Johnnie backed away and waved. The pilot waved back. The plane disappeared in the distance. A few days later an airplane landed on the vacant lot. Johnnie was there as usual. The pilot and the manager of the air line got out. The pilot stepped up to Johnnie and said: " Will you take us to your house, bud? " " Sure. Just follow me. " After a short walk they arrived at his home. After about half an hour ' s debate with Johnnie ' s mother they called him into the house. " Pack up your clothes. These men have a surprise for you, " said his mother. Twenty minutes later the airplane again took off. Johnnie, far up in the sky, knew his ambition was going to be fulfilled in the near future. — Philip Taylor, Loiv Seven. A PICTURE OF THE MADONNA It was Christmas Eve in the year 1930. The heavy snow lay Hke a blanket over the ground and rooftops, and glistened under the light of the street lamps. The shadows of the trees fell on the snow, making queer, long figures that danced and flitted about as the wind blew through the branches. Colored lights and holly wreaths could be seen in the windows of the houses along the brightly lighted streets. People with warm wraps and rubbers hustled through the streets carrying bundles and wreaths tied with red and green ribbons. On a bench in a near-by city park sat a young man. The collar of his gray coat was drawn up around his throat and a gray hat was pulled down over his eyes. This young man was obviously w atching the people as they scurried by. It began to snow. The man arose, drew his coat closer about him, shoved his hands in his pockets, and moved away. He turned down a side street and went up to a cosy little house with smoke curling up from the red, brick chimney into the still, dark night. The light pouring out of the windows surrounded the man as he stepped up to the porch. He brushed the flakes of snow from his clothes and then entered the house. As he stepped into the hall, his young wife came out of the kitchen to meet him. " Where have you been, John? " she asked anxiously. " It ' s so late and it ' s snowing again. " " Oh, just watching the people pass, " answered the young man wea- rily. " Searching for someone for my picture — someone who looks like the Madonna. " " And did you find that someone? " asked his wife, taking his coat and hat. " No, " returned the man. " None of them would do and I must have the picture finished by tomorrow for the art gallery. I can ' t seem to get the right expression in the eyes — that expression the Madonna should have. " " It will come to you, dear, " the young woman comforted with a fond pat on the shoulder. At that moment a curly-haired boy of three came into the room and ran to his father who tossed him into the air and set him upon his shoulder. The three went into a cosy living-room where a fire was burning merrily and a lovely Christmas tree stood gleaming with lights and ornaments. The man set the little child on the floor and went to a corner where stood the partly finished picture of the Madonna. He took up his brushes and palette and began to work on the picture. His young wife sat by the fire reading. Presently, the little boy at her feet, tiring of his play, curled up by the warm fire and went to sleep. The woman looked at the little tot with a smile. She then lifted him in her arms, kissing the rosy, upturned face. The man, glancing up from his work, gasped in amazement. " Why, Anne! Anne, you have that Madonna expression. I noticed it when you were looking at Bobbie just then. Now I can finish my picture. " And with that the artist set to work with a satisfied smile. As the young woman arose to put her small son to bed, the chimes of a near-by church rang out sweet and clear across the new-fallen snow and heralded the coming of Christmas Day. — Bernice Christensen, Lou Nine. iA " Bed-Time Story When Mr. Sim sinks to bis rosy bed, He over him draws a glorious spread.

THE BOLT OF DEATH Jim Brown, the young and famed inventor, turned with a grim smile from his workshop. He had just completed a test of his latest invention, a projector capable of shooting a beam of lightning for many hundreds of miles. Although happy over the success of his work, Jim realized that the invention must be guarded with the greatest care, since it was the most powerful instrument of warfare ever invented. Now that his work was finished, Jim was most anxious to place the projector into the hands of the War Department as quickly as possible and he determined to fly to Washington the following day. As Jim left the shop, he saw a small coupe, with curtains pulled down parked on the opposite side of the street. Probably he would have thought nothing of this had it not been for his somewhat nervous feeling about getting the projector to Washington as soon as possible. He decided to walk past the coupe, and, doing so, saw through the windshield what ap- peared to be two Orientals. As Jim walked on toward home, he became more fearful that something was about to happen, and he determined to return to his shop that evening to be sure that all was well. Darkness had already set in when Jim again reached his shop. As he was about to open the door, he heard a plane overhead and saw a faint light moving through the sky. Entering the shop, Jim saw at a place that the large wall-safe was open, and he knew instantly that the projector had been stolen. He thought immediately of the two Orientals he had seen, and of the night-flying airplane he had heard but a moment before. Rushing quickly to a cabinet, Jim grasped a small object and dashed out of the shop. Shouting at the driver of a passing automobile, Jim jumped on the running board and was driven wildly to the Air Port. It seemed but a moment when the big red Mono, which he himself had per- fected but a month before, was hurtling down the run-way and turning upward into the sky. Remembering the direction of the plane he had seen in the sky a few minutes before, Jim took off in pursuit at his full speed of 400 miles per hour. At this terrific speed it was but a short time when a light appeared in the black sky ahead and Jim knew he was rapidly closing in on the other plane. His sole hope now was that his hunch had been correct and that the plane ahead contained the Orientals and his projector. Although flying without lights, Jim knew that his plane would soon be discovered by the occupants of the other, and he knew also that skillful use of the projector could quickly end any chase. A moment later a streak of lightning seemed to shoot into space from the plane ahead. It swerved and darted through the blackness of the sky and suddenly blazed an arc toward Jim ' s onrushing plane. A moment more and a terrific explosion rocked the sky. The chase was ended for- ever. The mystery of the night explosion remained unsolved for all but General Brower of the War Department and one young man. Jim told the story to the General at the time a newly-constructed projector was de- livered into the latter ' s hands. The young inventor ' s foresight in perfect- ing a beam-bending reflector at the same time he was building the lightning projector had not only saved his life, but also had resulted in blowing into atoms those enemies who had stolen the projector. — Kenneth Street, High Seven. The oQittle Cmpty House Nobody ever stops to see What flowers grow in there, Nor if the lilac tree is out, Nor what the ivindoivs ivear. And oh, the little house must look As if it didn ' t caret No fingers ever lift the latch Of such a rusty gate, Nor footsteps hurry up the path, Afraid they might be late. And oh, the little house must act As if it didn ' t wait I And when prospective buyers come And poke about and peer. And cry their caustic comment on The haloed things and dear, The broken little house must smile As if it didn ' t hear! — Irvin Muratore, Lou Nine. PALM CANYON Palm Canyon is located about sixty miles south of Riverside on the southwestern part of the Colorado Desert. It is so warm during the sum- mer that the resorts in this region are generally closed from May to Novem- ber. From Palm Spring, a very fashionable winter resort, you wind through the desert for six miles, crossing a wide stream with a rocky bed. At last you come to a knoll about a hundred feet high. From the top you get your first glimpse of Palm Canyon with its palms and rushing stream. The palms form almost a maze and grow together overhead so that when walking through them, many times you can not see the sky above. This is the only spot where this particular species of Palm is to be found in America. Scientists claim the seeds must have been dropped many years ago by birds, as there is no record of them ever having been planted. This same palm is found occasionally in Africa and South America. — Jane Ray Vaughan, Low Eight. CALENDAR AUGUST Aug. 15 — Vacation ends. Alarm clocks again in disfavor! 16 — Rules! Rules!

GLEANER ACTIVITIES On September thirtieth the Gleaner campaign was launched by a very clever and amusing noon program. Mr. Corley and Mr. Perry gave an entertaining act, and a few pupils gave a humorous skit advertising the Gleaner. The jazz orchestra played a few selections and " Trees " was pre- sented by several girls with the aid of Mrs. Smith. The money received from this benefit program was the first funds ready for the publication of our Gleaner. Shortly after this a candy sale was arranged. The candy was sold at the Dads ' Club party, and also during the noon hour at school on Monday following the party. Several programs and activities are being planned for the future and by the time the Gleaner is published they will probably have been given and carried out. All these entertainments are presented through the efforts and cooperation of the members of the Gleaner Staff in the hope of offering you a bigger and better Gleaner! — Jane Malmgren, HigJo Nine. On Wednesday, December 14, the entire school will attend the en- joyable Class Day program, with its interesting music, statistics, and proph- ecy. Students who will take part are Jack Barnett, Brandon Howell, Bob Petersen, George K. Amonette, Elsie McCulloch, Frances Colly, and Jack Willis. Honors will be presented to the representative students, whose names are as yet unknown. On Thursday, December 15, the graduating exercises will take place. City Manager Hollis Thompson and Harland Frederick, a Garfield grad- uate, will address us. Jack Brodrick and Erma Ruth McDonald will be the student speakers. A fine musical program has been arranged. Our " G ' s " will be presented. In the afternoon the P. T.A. will give a fine party. Then we shall bid a reluctant farewell, carrying with us many happy memories of our " three bright years at Garfield. " HIGH EIGHT SCIENCE This year Miss Lowrey ' s Science classes enjoyed a " new deal, " inas- much as there was much more practical application of the sciences. For instance, in astronomy ( we not only looked at charts in books and read our lessons but we actually got outside and studied the eclipse. Beside doing this we made notebooks, collected clippings and read library books on the subject. We are also taking chemistry, another of the more complex sciences, but with the help of our instructors, who make the work very interesting as well as educational, we feel that we have gotten a great deal out of these two difficult sciences. — Robert House, High Eight. LIBRARY DAY A GLITTERING PAGEANT of shimmering costumes, a side-splitting parade of tattered rags. That ' s Garfield Library Day as it is to others. But to all loyal Garfieldites it ' s more than just that. It ' s a time of wriggling, squirming, and twisting. Your cap hurts your head and bits of fur stick to your back. But you have a good time " for a ' that and a ' that. " Library Day of 1932 was a greater success than any before. It set a precedent for others not only to follow but to live up to. For glistening finery and tattered raggedness it surpassed the best that Garfield has ever seen. Imagine the astonishment of a visitor from Canada upon looking into our yard. Tarzan and Mephistopheles play handball, while George Wash- ington and Tom Sawyer hammer on the Gym door for a basketball. In the main hall a bold, bad pirate converses sedately with Aunt Dinah — doubt- less asking for a recipe for plum pudding. That ' s Library Day — a hearty good time. — Joel Lee, High Nine. THE FIRE PREVENTION PLAY During Fire Prevention Week the " red headed " students of Gar- field under the direction of Mrs. Bagnall gave a little play entitled " Fire Hazards. " Mr. Hennessey selected the students with red hair to represent such fire hazards as electricity, rubbish, defective chimney, etc. The play was so well received that it was put on again during National Education Week so that our parents might enjoy it. — Carl Wilson, High Nine. THE GIRL SCOUT TROOP The Girl Scout Troop of Garfield is Number One, represented by a " Golden Poppy, " We have been meeting in the Girls ' Lodge this term, under the direction of Mrs. Kirk, our leader. Our activities vary. Some- times we go on Nature walks, play compass games, or else work for badges. We were recently visited by members of the Women ' s Relief Corps, who presented us our flag, and told us of the work they were doing. There is an over-night camp in the Berkeley Hills at a delightful loca- tion. Many times our troop takes a hike to this camp. Every meeting we play games and have instruction on different points of a Girl Scout ' s training. I am sure that any girl who wishes to join us will be welcomed. The Girl Scout organization offers a useful and entertaining line of education. — Lois Zurilgen, High Nine. SCOUT ACTIVITY The Scouts of Garfield have taken the responsibility of raising the flag in the morning at 8 o ' clock. The arrangements have been made by Mr. Flanders with the troops who have members in Garfield. The list of troops participating is: Troops 35, 4, 18, 19, 22, 40, 29, 30, 39, 32, 41, 3, 5, 8, 23, 24 and 28. — Gordon Sawyer, High Nine. GARFIELD ' S TRAFFIC POLICE Garfield ' s junior traffic police had a very successful term this fall. In the early part of the semester the force participated in a parade through the Berkeley streets with the traffic forces of other Berkeley schools. On November 4, a bean feed was given in the cafeteria for all the Berkeley Junior Police. This was very successful. The rewards for being a Junior Police officer are, free shows at the theaters, and in the fall term, admittance to most of California ' s football games. — Howard Coates, High Nine. EDUCATION WEEK During the week preceding Armistice Day, a program was given each morning in recognition of Education Week. On Monday the band played several selections and the Girls ' Glee Club sang two numbers. Tues- day we were ' entertained by a musical program at which several solos were offered by those who played musical instruments other than the piano. On Wednesday the Fire Prevention play was given again, and that evening the parents were invited to attend a meeting in the auditorium so that they might learn more about the work which their children were doing. On Thursday we were honored by the presence of Lieutenant Story, who told us of some experiences of the World War. We also held an athletic rally and were entertained by two vocal numbers. Education Week was very suc- cessful. — Janet Foreman, High Nine. ORGAN IZATIOHS GARFIELD ORCHESTRA AND BAND GARFIELD JAZZ BAND The Garfield Jazz Baxd has endeavored to present all the late popular dance numbers to the school. With Harry McElroy as the noisy trumpeter, Bob Mallary and Alfred as the talented pianists, Jerry Carpen- ter (our handsome blonde) puffing tunes out of the clarinet, and Morgan Saylor " banging " the drums, the result just has to be excellent. Of course there are others. The violin soloist claims recognition at any of the dreamy waltzes, and when any expert saxophone players are wanted John Merritt and Harry Metzler will supply the needs with music that will satisfy even Mrs. Smith ' s ear for discords. Let us send the graduating musicians away with three loud chords. Thanks. — Stanley Neyhart, Manager. At the first of the term it was decided that there would be no Garfield Girls ' Glee Club. This was determined because the former Glee Club teacher, Mrs. Nola Johnson, was transferred to another school. How- ever, so many of the girls were eligible for it and wanted to be in it, that Mr. Hennessey allowed the club to be started. Miss Posey, the new director, was chosen and so far has faithfully fulfilled her task. On November 6, 1932, they sang in the auditorium for Education Week. — Rhoda Potter, High Nine. Scenes from Library Day and a Bit of This and That SPORTS BLOCK G SOCIETY HIGH NINE VOLLEY BALL SQUAD HIGH EIGHT VOLLEY BALL SQUAD BOYS ' ATHLETICS The year 1932 was rather a lean one as regards city championships. The boys ' High Nine volley ball victory was the only one collected by Gar- field teams this term. This would be a very good record for other schools, but Garfield has set a very high standard for its teams, and one champion- ship seems a very slim record indeed after the two championships won earlier this year, and the four and five championships garnered by Garfield teams in the past. However, the High Nine boys ' volley ball team is to be congratulated on continuing the run of seven consecutive volley ball championships, and on winning every game on their tough schedule. THE ' ' BLOCK G " SOCIETY The " Block G " Society started out this term with thirteen mem- bers. They are: Jack Brodrick, President; John Mecorney, Vice-President; Bill Watson, Secretary, and Jack Willis, Treasurer. The other members are Bill Johnson, Marshall; Woodrow Hamilton, Assistant Marshall; Arthur Vickerey, Russell Andrews, Jack Barnett, Jack Saunders, David Baird, Bob Mallary, and Bennie Hugel. An initiation was held at the end of the volley ball season. Five new boys were brought in. The " Block G " has given several dances this semester. The money was used partly to pay for baseball uniforms for the Garfield baseball team. At the end of the term the graduating High Nines were given an Italian dinner by the other members of the society. — Russell Andrews, HigJo Nine. THE HEAD BANKERS OF GARFIELD There are three High Nine boys who are in charge of the school banking. These boys help the two women who come from the bank. They enter the amount of money in the bank book of each pupil. The slips and money are checked to see that there is no mistake. These boys are Jack Brodrick, Bill Folwell and Gordon Sawyer. You have seen these boys when they deliver the bank envelopes to each room. Each year three High Nine boys are chosen to do this work. Art Material for the Gleaner was selected from work submitted by the Art Staff. Dean Stone designed the cover and Fumiko Kondo, the frontispiece. Pupils who designed and cut the lineloum blocks or the illus- trations were: Barbara Pepper, Sports; Lois Ammerman, Graduates; Hazel McKee, Literature, Activities and Fun; and Dean Stone, Organizations. THE GIRLS ' VOLLEY BALL TEAMS This term the girls ' volley ball teams lost the city championship by a very small margin, the High Nines remaining undefeated throughout the season. The eighth grade girls fought hard, but were unable to defeat the Edison Eighth Grade, who won the championship. played our only game at home with Edison. The other two were played at Willard and Burbank. The teams were coached by our worthy teachers, Miss Stout and Mrs. Davis, to whom much of the credit is due for the games that were won. — Nancy v hitlock, High Nine. GIRLS ' BLOCK G The Girle ' Block G Society, of which Miss Stout is an honorary member, was started last year by some High Nine girls, but the first meet- ings were held this year. The society is made up of Eighth and Ninth Grade girls who have won their Block G ' s in athletics. The meetings are held every other Friday and the dues are five cents. The officers are: President, Nancy Whitlock, Vice-President, Jean Somers, and Secretary-Treasurer, Isabel Hinckley. The society so far has been very successful and those who are leaving, hope it will continue to be so. — Kathryn Jones, High Nifie.

DEAR FRIENDS, THE TIME has come FOR US to go; BUT JUST a word, ABOUT THE past— WHY I remember— BUT FIRST I beg FOR YOU to stop AND THINK HOW MANY happy days AND HOW many friends YOU HAVE met IN GARFIELD. THERE IS one friend WHOM I met outside OF GARFIELD— AND OWE MY DEEPEST gratitude— A DOORMAN. I WAS fond of a young lady NAMED ANITA— AND I decided TO TAKE HER TO THE show, AND I did! I CALLED for her IN MY best blue suit, WHICH HAD a spot ON THE left knee. AND SHE wore a dress WITH LOADS of frills, AND THE father offered TO DRIVE us to the theatre WHICH WAS ALL lit up WITH LOTS of lights THAT HURT the eye, AND A Doorman looked WITH A frosty glance at us, AND WE trembled. BUT WHEN I endeavored TO PRODUCE the tickets HE LAUGHED— BECAUSE I had lost them. AND I looked at the young lady AND SHE looked at me. AND I SMILED weakly AND SHE giggled, BUT WE GOT INTO THAT SHOW. BECAUSE THE DOORMAN LOANED ME the money TO BUY NEW TICKETS. WHICH ALL goes to show THAT DOORMEN have hearts. DAYS HAVE flown SINCE THAT sad night BUT JUST the same I REMEMBER AND BLUSH. AND, BY THE WAY, PLEASE THINK of MR. HENNESSEY AND THE faculty WHO LABOR daily TO MAKE you a success IN FUTURE life. AND A thought of them WOULD HELP a lot TO MAKE the day easier. AND IF you do — remember I THANK YOU, S. H. N. (Stanley Neyhart) with apologies to K. C. B. SIMILAR TASTE Margaret Stratton: Don ' t you like the lower crust of this pie? Jerry Carpenter: Oh, pardon me! I thought it was the paper plate. John Merritt: May I speak to you, Mrs. Kleeberger? Mrs. Kleeberger: Yes, if you make it snappy. J. M.: Can a teacher take money from a pupil? Mrs. Kleeberger: Yes, if she needs it. A cow sat chewing her cud.

JohnM: Do you know why my brother can ' t see with this eye? Jack W.: No! John M. : Because it ' s mine. Polite Host: Would you care to sit on my right hand during dinner?

" Hush, the children are going to deliver their good-night message, " she said softly. " It always gives me a feeling of reverence to hear them. They are so much nearer the Creator than we are, and they speak the love that is in their little hearts never so full as when the dark has come. Listen! " There was a moment of tense silence.
