" y I PRINCIPAL ' S MESSAGE TO GRADUATES Three years ago today, on December 13, 1933, in our beautiful school-home, Garfield students and teachers were enjoying preparations for the Christmas programs — with vacation only a week distant. Twenty-four hours later, a somewhat bewildered " Garfield family, " of nearly thirteen hundred people, found itself without any home except the auditorium and three bungalows. Our building had been declared an earthquake hazard — and we were banished. As Longfellow says in " Paul Revere ' s Ride " : " You know the rest. " You, the January class of 1937, were the small Seventh Grade boys and girls who " came in with the tents. " In heat and cold, sunshine and rain, mud and dust, you have cheer- fully adapted yourselves to the " Garfield Chatauqua. " Now, when your Junior High course is nearly completed, a surprising announcement has been made. Most of the tents are to go — but you are to stay. Your class has been presented to Garfield as a Christmas gift, and rooms in the main building are to be your New Year gift. Garfield will be twenty-one years of age next month. We shall ob- serve our coming of age by very gladly and willingly helping you through the problems of your Low Tenth Grade. We prophesy that the next six months will be pleasant and successful for all concerned. " New occasions teach new duties. " We know you, and we wish you to succeed in your new relationships with Garfield. Next June, we shall say " Good-bye " to you as a class. Now, it is only " Auf Wiedersehen. " D. L. Hennessey. A Christmas Prayer Oh, teach us, God, what Christmas means, Its loving gifts, its joys and cheer, And may tve share our happiness, With those less fortunate, this year. And may tue not forget, dear God, Through all the joy that Christmas brings, To give a thought to thank Thee for The birthday of the King of Kings. Amen. Mary Jane Yost, Low Nine.  CHRISTMAS MESSAGE Silent night, Holy night — were they not the words of that heavenly host so long ago? Silent night, Holy night — still they echo through our lives, wrapping the world in a cloak of peace. When softly through the hallowed night, drift the Christmas hymns, let us realize their full meaning and feel, again, the glory felt in the hearts of the people that first joyous night. May your gifts be given in the spirit with which the Wise Men gave gifts to the Christ Child, and your Christmas be not only a beautiful one but also a merry one as every Christmas should be. Barbara Cross, High Nine. GRADUATION Again, Garfield sends her High Nines out into the world but this year it is a much smaller world; in fact, a world of our own. Due to the crowded conditions at Berkeley High, we wil l remain on the grounds of our own Junior High as a separate division of the school. Nevertheless, on January 21, a graduation will be held, with the orchestra playing the entrance and the exit marches, the graduates contributing with musical and oratorical selections, and all of the delightful things that go with graduation. Though handicapped by the reconstruction of the auditorium, the exercises are sure to live up to the standards of the past, in the faithful " Gym. " Henrietta LaTour, High Nine. The Lonely Christmas Tree Bedecked with tinsel, I stand A-shine in the firelight flame, Awaiting the childish band Who will greet me in Jesus ' name. Warm and still is the hall, Heavy the jewels I wear, About me the shadows jail, As I drowse in the perfumed air. The dark, rugged strength of the mountains; The fir trees, my sisters, with me; The ice-ivreaths, that sparkle, like fountains At play, near a silver sea. O, to be there on my hillside I To grow as God meant me to grow, To know, through the years, Yd abide With the mountains, the winds, and the snow. Veronica Baird, Low Nine, First Prize.

C, Custodian ★ ★ The Tiny Lamb That Followed the Star Long, long ago, in the dark of the night, When snowflakes had clad the earth in white, Lost, and unsheltered, a lambkin lay — Patiently waiting the break of day. Then, of a sudden, a star shone bright, Tinting the world with its glorious light, And the tiny lamb felt warmed with the sight Of that beautiful star, lighting the night. So, up he rose, and, following the star, He trudged o ' er the land, near and far Until, at last, in a beast ' s stall, rude, He found a Babe in a manger crude. His fat little self throbbing with love, The tiny lamb raised his eyes above, And thanked his God for guiding him there To the Babe, ivho lay in radiance fair.

I ' ll tell you a story, of long ago, About an old man, who lived in the snow: Once, in Holland, there was an old king; All children aivaited the presents he ' d bring. He ' d creep through the %uindow — Not knock at the door — And ivould scatter candy all over the floor. The children all loved him; he was so kind, He ' d bring them presents, if they would mind. We now have our Santa, so fat and round, He comes to the city, and then to the town. He creeps down the chimney, And runs through the hall, And leaves little Mary a great big doll. Hark! My children, hear the church bells chime? That means that this is Christmas time.

This class has 150 members, of whom eighty-one are girls and sixty-nine are boys. Our statistics may not be stupendous, gigantic, or colossal, but we guar- antee them to be surprising — (at least they surprised us.) In this class are represented twenty states, one national possession, and three foreign countries. Twenty-four cities in California have been honored by being the birthplaces of our members. The chief ones are: Berkeley (see if you can find that on the map) , from which there are forty- five; San Francisco, where twenty-two originated; and Oakland, respon- sible for twenty. Outside of California, the leading states represented are Colorado and the. Lone Star State (which, in case you don ' t know, is Texas) , from which there are three delegates, each. Two members, John Bradley and Eugenie Mjedloff, come from romantic Hawaii. The foreign powers send us, from Canada, Ralph Tufts and Ruth Laidlaw; from Germany, Horst Walck and Margot Heimann; and last, but not least, we find Birgit Dundas from Norway. Thus, this class ranges nearly half-way round the world. We have a large assortment of names. Among the unusual names for the girls are Aida, Merle, and Birgit. Barbara and Jeanne (spelt Gene- Jean- Jeanne) predominate, with six holders for each. The boys have eight Johns, six Williams, and six Roberts. The most unusual names are Maxim, Sheldon, and John Puissegeur Bradley — (pronounce it as you wish) . The age of this class ranges from 13 to 17, four years difference. Miss Laurens ' advisory wins the prize of the oldest group by a mere ten years over Miss Kilkenny ' s triple threaters. The total age of the Laurens advis- ory is 472 years, five months. The oldest member in the class is aged 17 years, 4 months; the youngest is 13 years, 6 months. Incidentally, both are girls. The total age of the class dates back to the days of Plato, 399 B. C. (The famous Platonic school was formed by Plato in 400 B. C.) The total age of the boys is 1 1 3 1 years, seven months ; and of the girls, 1203 years, five months. The class, despite its smallness in number, is decidedly tall, due to the fact that it has several six-footers and several close to that height. The tallest of these is Howland Lake, who raises the roof at six feet, three inches, in his stocking feet. (Think what would happen if he puts on a pair of high heeled shoes. ) The lengthiest girl is Peggy Ann Zoll, who keeps the old roof pretty high at five feet, ten inches (believe it or not) . The girl nearest to the ground is only five feet one-half inch short. The shortest boy stands (not sits) at five feet, one inch. The advisory nearest to the sky is Mrs. Kilkenny ' s, which towers 197 feet above good old terra-firma. The total height of all the girls is 427 feet, nine inches. The boys are 402 feet, six inches high, making the grand total of 830 feet, three inches in height, or eighty feet, nine inches higher than the Marin Tower of the Golden Gate Bridge. Naturally, we are not the heaviest class that ever graduated from Gar- field. In fact, we are probably among the lightest. However, the heaviest  girl tips the scales at 148 pounds. Her name is — ah-ah-ah-ah — that would be telling! When the heaviest laddie puts his penny in the slot the needle spins round and round and where she stops is at 176 pounds. The lightest pupil, who is a girl, is but eighty pounds in weight, and the paper-weight boy gives her a close race at 87 pounds. Mrs. Kilkenny again scores with the heaviest advisory. They weigh in at 3,825 pounds. The total weight of the boys in the entire class is 8,392 pounds, and the girls ' weight is 8,484 pounds. The total weight of the class is a little less than a ten-foot section of the Bay Bridge Cable. (See how up-to-date our statistics are.) We regret that time does not permit a further enlightenment to a world anxiously awaiting information concerning this remarkable class of Janu- ary, 1937. If we dared, and if we had space, we would tell you many, many more things — some of which would startle our teachers. One of our outstanding qualities is our modesty, and so we shall close with a simple statement that we are undoubtedly the best class in every respect that has joined the Garfield alumnae. HONOR SOCIETY BANQUET One of the most important events of every term is the High Nine Honor Society Banquet. This term, it was held on October twenty-eighth. A turkey dinner was served in the two lunch tents and the library. Mem- bers of the High Nine class had the privilege of serving the " Honor " guests. After dinner, all went to the gymnasium for a delightful program which was opened with a speech by Clyde Paxton, the president. Commu- nity singing followed, then " Little Red Riding Hood " by Lawrence Berger, with appropriate, side-splitting sound-effects by Gene Ricker and Paul Eiben. Famous alumnae members entertained us. Constance Robin- son sang two character son? and Darrell An ubright with his partner. Barbara Lee Thomas, danced. Honor badges were presented by Colonel Agree, of the R. O. T. C. and the past presidents of the Honor Society. Mr. Hennessey directed an intricate grand march. The gymnasium was cleverly decorated as an old Southern Garden, the artistic work of Natalie Harris, Peggy Zoll, Maxine Clarke, Bill Reich, and John Kayser. Beverly Harvey was program chairman. Barbara Farrell, High Nine. Memories Memories — reflecting their joys in a mirror of happiness; Memories — many and dear; ' Pleasures — never to be felt again, but to be lived again, in — memories.

Several successful dances and a rousing rally have been given. G. S. A. membership is about one thousand. The High Nines have one hundred per cent membership, the advisors being Mrs. Kilkenny, Miss Hamsher, Miss Martin, Miss Laurens and Mr. Nealson. The Low Seven advisories are also one hundred per cent. Their advisors are Mrs. Bagnall, Miss Brush, Mrs. Rowell, Mrs. Wilkes and Mrs. Weed. The capable officers of the G. S.

June Dowler, Loiv Nine. Shepherds They watch when the moon-beams fall on them, They ivatch when the torrents of rain rage round them. In the light summer night, when the air is clear, In the cold winter nights, when the wind is drear, They guard their flocks with the tenderest care, The Shepherds of Bethlehem.

Christmas Eve is here again I Jane Detro, High Nine.  GARFIELD PARENT-TEACHER ASSOCIATION The most important phase of the Parent-Teacher Association is child welfare. In order to accomplish the best results, it is necessary to have a closer understanding among children, teachers and parents. The Gar- field Parent-Teacher Association opened its Fall term with a reception, welcoming old members and honoring mothers of new pupils — to acquaint them with the work of the Parent-Teacher Association. At the monthly meetings, programs showing the different depart- ments of school activity are presented. Juvenile Protection, Safety, and Student Aid Chairmen are constantly working toward peace and security for children. A parent education class is being held at the new branch- ' library, under the direction of Dr. Edith Bryan. Books have been bought for the school library from the S 50.00 raised by the Mothers ' Candy Sale on Library Day. Proceeds from a successful Food Sale and from the Community Play, " Rip Van Winkle, " helped balance the budget so that a substantial sum could be paid toward the Garfield Band Uniform Fund. These lovely orange and white capes were purchased, last year, by the cooperation of the Parent-Teacher Association, the Dads ' Club and the Students. The present officers of the Association are : President . . Mrs. A. B. Wuxoughby Treasurer .... Mrs. Albert Crum ist Vice President . . Mrs. M. C. Hrx Historian .... Mrs. F. A. Beauchamp 2nd Vice President Mrs. H. M. Williams Auditor Mrs. H. H. Hadley Recording Secretary . Mrs. C. E. Hunter Delegate to Council . Mrs. F. F. Cooper Corresponding Secretary . Mrs. C. Z Yost Nancy Willoughby, Low Nine. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ THE DADS OF GARFIELD We are proud of the Dads of Garfield, not just because they ' re our dads, but because they are, also, a vital part of our school community. Who helped buy the stage curtains and band uniforms? The dads! Who gave us a grand party? The dads! And what a party it was! The mothers were allowed to come. Prizes were awarded for the lightest, the heaviest, the tallest and the shortest father and child. The Brodies won the height title. Next semester the club will sponsor a theatre party at the Oaks Theatre. The tentative program for the remainder of the year will be a series of lectures grven by members of the faculties of the University of California and Berkeley High School. The subject will be " Preparing for an Occupa- tion. The officers of the Dads this year are: President ... Dr. E. P. Rankin Vice President . E. R. Axdrews Secretary S. J. Lelaxd Treasurer ... J. P.

Hurrying crowds, in the haste of last-minute Christmas shopping, rushed by in an endless throng. A young woman paused in front of a pet shop, and then, closing her umbrella, walked in. The clerk looked up with a smile and a cheery greeting. The young lady returned the smile. In one swift glance, the clerk saw the slender, pale face, delicate features and lustrous, dark hair of her customer. The neat, becoming, knit suit showed her good taste. " And what may I do for you, Miss? " asked the clerk, engagingly. " I noticed a little Boston bull puppy in the window. Would you mind bringing him out? " " Certainly not. " In a moment the salesgirl returned with a bright- eyed, squirming bull puppy. " He ' s a beautiful puppy. Comes from the finest of stock. I ' m sure you ' ll not find a better bargain, " the clerk assured her. " Indeed? " replied her customer, who apparently did not consider the little bull dog a beautiful specimen of puppyhood. The dog licked her hand affectionately. Carelessly the girl caressed him. Suddenly her eyes lighted up with pleasure as she noticed a beautiful, haughty Pekinese, re- posing on a cushion, and looking down at the other dogs with a decided air of condescension. The girl walked over and gently touched his silky hair. For a moment the brown eyes regarded her seriously; then he stretched, stood up, and wagged his tail in a most un-Pekinese-like manner. With a sigh and wistful glance at the beautiful dog she turned back to the counter. " How much is he? " she asked. " The Pekinese? Oh, he ' ll cost you twenty-five dollars. He ' s worth at least fifty, but because he has no pedigree, we ' re offering him at this re- duction. I ' m sure you ' d find him a delightful and lovable companion. " " No, no. I mean the bull puppy. How much are you asking for him? " asked the girl, impatiently. " Oh, he ' s the same price, and reasonable at that, I can assure you. " " Very well, you may wrap him up for me, " said the young lady, her eyes on the Pekinese. The clerk tried not to smile. " You want a leash? " " Why, yes, I suppose so. " When the young woman had left, the clerk, Miss Porter, shook her head in bewilderment. While her customer had quite obviously longed for the Pekinese, she had bought the bull pup, at which she had barely glanced, while both were the same price. Ah, but then it was probably a gift. Just then she was aroused from her musing, when a tall, good-look- ing young man stamped the snow from his shoes on the mat outside, and walked in. " Have you any Pekinese puppies? " he asked, pleasantly. " Yes. There ' s that one over there, and there are two or three others in the back room. If you wish, I can get them for you. " " No, never mind now. This little fellow, over here, seems very nice — for a Pekinese. " " Don ' t you like them? " " I think they ' re abominable, " he admitted, evenly. Miss Porter smiled.  " They are a bit snobbish and condescending, but they really do make lovely pets. " " Yes? Perhaps so, but my idea of a dog is one of those bright-eyed, snappy, Boston bulls. They ' re lively, and can be taught tricks. Never could understand why anybody would want one of those beautiful, limp, pepless lap-dogs. But nevertheless, I ' m planning to get one. Gift for my wife. She ' s always wanted one. How much will you charge for it? " " Twenty-five dollars, and I ' m sure your wife will be delighted with her gift. " " I hope so, " the young man grinned. " I guess I may as well take it along now. Do you have a box I can cart him in? " " Certainly. And may I have your name, please? " " Brian Norwood. " " And your address? " He gave it, and soon was gone. Miss Porter gazed dreamily out of the window. " Mrs. Ruth Norwood bought a Boston bull when she wanted a Pekinese, and Mr. Brian Nor- wood bought a Pekinese when he wanted a Boston bull. Unless I miss my guess those two will be the happiest couple anywhere in this city, regard- less of the hole in their pocketbook, " she smiled. Outside, the snow still drifted down and lay in all its shining white- ness on the ground. But the sun seemed to shine a little brighter, as if shining down on an earth which at no time could have been more fair. Peggy Phillips, Low Nine. The Coming of Santa He was so jolly, fat, and gay, His hair was long and very gray. He ' s always adding to the joys, Of all the little girls and boys. The stockings hanging in a row, Filled with goodies top to toe. When finished Santa disappeared , As quickly as he had appeared. The laughter of the girls and boys, Showed they loved their pretty toys. As mother watched, she softly sighed, So glad that they were satisfied. His clothes were of a red so bright, The time went by with lots of fun, With trimmings round the waist, of white. Goodies were there for everyone. His chubby cheek was like a rose, But the day went by all too fast, And from the cold, so was his nose. Because another Christmas had passed. Phyllis Mingham, Low Nine. Come, gather ' round the tree so bright, See all the red and yellow lights. Santa dear, will soon be here, Bringing bags of Christmas cheer. Hear the sleigh bells in the sky, Santa Claus is riding by. Soon he will come dashing through With many lovely things for you. As the children spoke his name, Down the chimney Santa came. He filled their stockings to the brim, While all children stared at him. [19 POEMS BY SARA HELEN LEE Low Nine. Yearning Ah, God of Poetry, if thou wouldst but give One crystal poem to thy striving slave; That, when I died, it might behind me live, To ease the unkind silence of my grave. One thought to whisper to myself in death, One thought that would redeem my empty life, One thought the world might sigh tuith precious breath, When pausing in the midst of strife. Oh, God of Poetry, I do not ask for fame, I beg of you, one brief, but lasting line Which men will couple with my humble name, One thought, which I may call mine — truly mine. Aspiration I want a house — a friendly house, Where I can hide away. A house to stretch its pine-wood arms In welcome, at close of day. I want a house — a tiny house, Under the sky of blue. I tuant a house that ' s cozy and bright, To tell my secrets to. I ' m tired of the house, Ym living in, With its gray, unfriendly stone I ivant a house, that ' s more than a house — I want a house that ' s a home. Moonlight In the hush of hilltops, Green, with budding grass, I have seen the moon rise, Seen the shadows pass. Seen the willow, loxuly, Bow her shapely head Before an unseen presence, A queen, unheralded. Through the bending rushes, Dim, with silver light, In every dreaming valley Spring has passed tonight.  POEMS BY JUNE DOWLER Low Nine. Beyond the Hills In a dim, eternal silence of the hour Before the torch of Heaven has been aloft, While gray and gloomy sky threatens To circle all around and crush out the starlight I wish to know what ' s lying there Beneath that quivering star of eve, As it begins to dive into the waves; With pines outlined in black Against the sky, Beyond the hills. The flush of morning floods this gloomy gray. The star has drowned, an overpowering might, But still I think of what must be Beyond the hills. Some voice in many tongues, calls, Calls to me with its beivitching accent. A heavenly gold is luring me to dream And with its lost burnished flame Subjects the farthest hill. This leaping flame bums in my heart And sets alight the fire of all desire Which leaps out to the great unknown, Beyond the hills. Who knotvs but what, love, life, and liberty lie Where the star of eve falls, and a strange voice, calls Beyond the hills? Proserpina Proserpina, oh, spirit of spring! The night has departed, with shadows and stars; The dawn-sky is radiant, the lark-heralds sing; Apollo has broken his cloud-prison bars. Proserpina, hasten, with music and light, A soft rush of fragrance and sunshine and dew I Fly to the old earth and scatter your joy — Hark! for Aurora is calling to you. Proserpina, hasten, oh, spirit of spring, To the hearts of the people and heart of the earth, Bring springtime and joytime, dawn-time and light, And all of thy spirit ' s true gladness and worth.  POEMS BY JOAN HAUSER Low Eight Christmas Chimes Ring softly o ' er the world, sweet chime, Tell all ivho live ' tis Christmas time. We love the pealing of the bell, Which, in its ringing, seems to tell The glory of the first Noel. What say the bells as soft they ring? What is the message that they bring? Why peace on earth, good will toward men, Though ages old, ' tis new again, And just as welcome, now ' , as then. Ring clear and siveet, ring loud and wide. Ring in the joyous Christmas-tide. Toll out to nations, far and near Your message is for all the year. Ring out, Oh, bells, so all can hear. Madonna Queen of mothers, Oh, Mary, art thou: A halo of light shines on thy brow; Gently thou hold est thy Holy Son — The Son of God, the Perfect One. A heavenly light is in thine eyes, Thou hast heard a message from the skies — The angels singing the sweet refrain, " Peace on earth, good will toivard men. ' ' 1 Lullaby Sleep, little Babe, on your bed of hay, A star shines, brightly, o ' erhead. It turns the dark night to the brilliance of day. God ' s glory shines all ' round your bed. Sleep, little child, in your soft, snowy bed. Sleep, as the Babe, long ago. God ' s glory, also, shines ' round your head And the Christmas star is aglow.  BLACK SHEEP Esau, with his tall shepherd ' s staff, skillfully guided the sheep up the trail. Proudly, he watched the one black sheep scramble behind the leader. On that sheep, depended the life of Esau ' s mother. His father would take it into Bethlehem on the morrow and the priest would offer it as a burnt offering to the Almighty, so that his mother would be well again. True, he would be sorry not to see it scamper about, but he would be far more sorry if his dear mother were to die. It was a clear, cold night as Esau herded the sheep to the pasture grounds on the summit of the hills. The stars shone brightly and twinkled merrily, trying to sparkle the glad tidings to those human beings — the tidings that were to glorify the world. Esau noticed the one particularly bright star which seemed to throw a pathway of light beyond the walls of the city. Yes! It would be a grand night. The shepherds huddled around the fire would be singing to the heavens. There he was, almost at the top, just around the turn. The path, here, was very narrow and steep. Esau dreaded this place. When one looked down so far, one felt a hollow feeling in his stomach. On this side of the path, the hill went straight down, its steepness, undented except for a small rock ledge, a few feet from the trail. There! He was past the turn. He had been leading the sheep at this part of the journey and as he looked back he immediately noticed the absence of the black sheep. He stopped and carefully watched each sheep as it rounded the turn, and still no black sheep appeared. Sick with fear, Esau thought of the steep mountain side, and mother. First, the other sheep must be led still farther, then he would return. Oh, yes! then he would return. As he walked, silently, down the trail, the stars, which before had seemed so beautiful, now seemed to mock him. He rounded the dreaded turn and peered anxiously over the edge. But what! T here it lay on the small ledge, just beyond his grasp. It was lying down and its breath was coming in gasps. If it would only stand up, then he could lift it onto the trail. Esau prodded it gently with his staff, but it didn ' t stir. He spoke and sang softly to it, but to no avail. Oh! if it would only get up. Esau lay on the trail far into the night, until his every muscle was stiff, waiting until it would finally rise. And then the most beautiful happened. From behind the clouds, hosts of angels appeared, singing " Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. " Then slowly, oh so slowly, the black sheep began to rise. Idella Searl, High Eight. ★ ★ ★ Madonna Standing there in silence, Abiding, blessed, mild, Pure in thy stately calm, Bearing the Holy Child. Fair and gentle one, Glowing with God ' s might, As hidden heavenly hosts Sing of the Savior ' s might. Marie Morholt, Low Nine.  Madonna and Child Madonna bent Her head and smiled Upon the Holy Angel Child. The halo ' round Her head did shine, And Mary said, " This Child is Thine, " Unto the Lord! The Angels sang in Bethlehem , Of peace on earth, good will toward men. And came to worship from afar, Guided by a radiant star, Three Wise -men I He ivas, they said, upon His birth, Born to be the Lord of Earth. Of mortals ' souls, He was the Guide; A Savior bom, a martyr died. He is the Lord! Dorothy Easson, Low Seven. The Birth of Christ Long, long ago, three very wise men Were riding their camels to Bethlehem. Their guide had been a gleaming star, That led them to Him from afar. All night long the angels did sing, Of the little Lord Jesus, the new-born King. Phyllis McCarter, Low ' Eight. A Tale of Bethlehem The stars of Bethlehem, one night, Shone on a babe, their holy light, This babe was born on Christmas Day, And shepherds, homage came to pay. The angels sang with golden voice, The burden of their song — " Rejoice! " The bells, so sweet, rang in the morn, " ' Tis Christmas and the Christ Child ' s born. " That day is gone. We ' ll not forget, That Jesus came — ' Tis ivith us yet, That phrase repeated oft again: " Peace be on earth! Good will to men. " Mary Grot, High Nine.  The Mother of Jesus God sent to us a loving babe From Heaven to the earth below, And gave to Him a mother dear, The Madonna, whom ive know. Loving hands, she used to guide Him, As He tvent about His play. And a loving heart, she gave Him, In her understanding ivay. We are sure her ears did listen For His shout of pain or joy. And her eyes would follow, quickly, Every movement of her boy. Jesus must have loved her dearly As she sang to Him, and smiled; Staying to herself serenely, " This is Christ, the Holy Child. " Mary Jane Yost, Low Nine. Mother of Mercy Oh, Mother of Mercy, Mother of Grace, A tale of love in thy heavenly face, The light of the aura does not compare, With thine eyes of compassion, thy saintly air. Oh, Mother of Mercy, Mother of Right, Guard thy Babe throughout the night, Oh, Mother of Mercy, so tender and mild Keep from all harm thy Holy Child. Helen Jacovleff, Low Eight. Madonna and Child Tenderly, the Virgin Mary gazes at her holy child; Beautiful is she, patient, loving, mild. ' Round them shines a radiant, golden, glowing light, And joyously, the angels sing, on this most glorious night. Heavenly hosts attend the babe, who, innocent and pure In manhood, gave His life to cleanse, and make man strong and sure; Oh, Madonna, happy, Thou, to be the mother of such a Son, For all the world doth worship Him, the Merciful, Almighty One. Peggy Phillips, Low Nine.  My Most Valuable Privilege Under the Constitution of the United States (First prize, American Legion Essay Contest, Berkeley, 1936) Early in the 1600 ' s, when my English ancestors left their comfortable British homes for new dwellings in the then recently-established Massa- chusetts Bay Colony, they brought with them what was to be my most precious heritage — freedom of speech. It had taken the middle-classes of England centuries to wrest this fundamental right from the dictatorial kings and nobles. The first great step had been the signing of the Magna Carta. Then had come an act of Parliament, called the Bill of Rights, which is regarded as the most important constitutional document in the history of England. When the thirteen colonies separated from the mother country and became the United States of America, a supreme law was needed. It was natural for them to turn to the Bill of Rights for their model. After the best minds in the country had worked on this project, our present Con- stitution was evolved. It has not only served its purpose satisfactorily, regulating the lives of the American people, but has been used as a model for a supreme law in many Latin American republics. Until recently, I have taken the Constitution for granted, rarely thinking about it at all. But after having studied Civics last year, and after having seen the ill effects of the loss of free speech and other con- stitutional rights, through dictatorships, in most European countries, I have become conscious of my safety under a well-formed Constitution. Like my Puritan and Nordic ancestors, I resent any interference with or suppression of my thoughts. Today, in Russia, a man ' s first allegiance belongs, according to an oath which he is forced to take, to the Communist party, and to the red flag. There is no free speech, no free press, no free radio, no right of assembly. Anyone in Russia who criticizes the government, as Communists criti- cize the American government, is sent to suffer in Siberia, or is shot with- out trial or mercy. Imagine such conditions existing here among my friends and neighbors! If America became Communistic, the following could happen every day: A miserable little group of friends sitting here, all thinking the same things but not daring to put them into words; Mr. Jones sent to Little America because he openly preferred the red, white and blue flag to the Communist red one; pathetic old Mr. Brown placed in a concentration camp for saying, " My great, great grandfathers fought in the Revolution- ary War, and I fought in the Civil War, and my family has always been American, and 7 shall die American! " In Germany, citizens are spied upon by employees of the govern- ment. If someone chances to say something disrespectful about Hitler or the Nazis, he may expect to be sent to a concentration camp by the gov- ernment, whose spies, undoubtedly, heard his words. Even the telephones are tapped, and any person may expect to be summoned to a government agency, to hear a record of his speech with another citizen. In America, anyone may express his opinion of the government, whether it be favorable or unfavorable to the party in power.  The world has been obsessed, since the World War, with a mania of unrest and change. There are now thirteen dictatorships in Europe where there were none before the war. If we realized how miserable life would be for Anglo Saxon people under a dictatorship without free speech, our national hymn would be, " God Preserve Our Constitution. " Helen Eveleth, Low Nine. A SERIOUS OFFENSE? " We, the people of the United States, in order to, " here Jack stopped reading. Leaning back against the trunk of the tree he took another bite of a delicious green apple. Then he sighed, " Gee, I wish there were no Constitution. " Laying the book aside and stretching into a more comfort- able position, he gazed wishfully into the nearby woods. He was aroused suddenly by a sharp poke in the stomach. Scrambling to his feet he looked around but could find no one. However, he did see something else. A large sign in rough, rough letters read, " Unite the Underworld and Olympus, Vote for Pluto. " Next to this sign was an- other which read, " Re-elect Jupiter. " " Humph! personally I wouldn ' t have either, " mumbled Jack, who was unaware that Eris, Godess of Dis- cord, had overheard him. " What! Ho! Stranger, thou shalt pay for those words, " cried Eris in glee. " Come with me! " " You can ' t do this to me, " cried Jack. " This is a free country. " " It won ' t be after the election, when Pluto is president, " replied Eris, as she led Jack to the White House, and repeated his remark to Jupiter. " Well, young man, " said Jupiter to Jack, " I cannot let you remain unpunished for such a serious offense. In Olympus, everyone must vindi- cate himself if he makes bold speeches. You must do battle with Mars to prove your valor. Wait! Here is Mars now. You shall contest immediately. Let the fight begin! " " And here we are at the Olympic Stadium, " cried Mercury, the sports announcer, through the microphone. " The fight ' s beginning. " " A left! a right! our friend is down. Wait, he ' s up again. Mars gives him a left right in the stomach. He ' s . . . " " Wake up, Jack, " commanded his mother. " What is the matter with you? " " Oh! oh, " cried Jack, holding his stomach. " Open your mouth, " commanded his mother. " Just as I thought, Castor oil for you. " Jean Anastas, Loiv Nine. Sunset Sunlight flickering through the trees, Evening sighing peacefully, Shadows falling, Shadows creeping; Purple, gold, and scarlet hues, Lone stars hanging in the west, Dusk enthralling. Nature sleeping. Anne Kidder, High Seven.  SUNRISE ON THE LAKE The tall, green pines are pale and ghostly, edging the deep white canyon which shelters the lake. The stream is muffled and the shivering pines are still, but through the curtain of mist, dusky forms are seen stealing to the water ' s edge. The deer are watchfully drinking. A fat, round shadow steals to a thicket but too late, for the deer have scented the intruding bear and are gone. The jay with his harsh cry has warned the forest folk. To the right, shadowy forms are taking shape, as the huge mountains which guard the lake appear. The mist is lifting and faint pink and yellow clouds are seen in the distance. The yellow fades to brilliant pink and then to crimson as the shafts of sunlight pour forth. The crimson clouds have rolled away and as a fiery ball appears in the East, we know Apollo has kept his promise by bringing us another new and perfect day. Marjorie McClellan, High Eight. Nativity There once ivas born in Bethlehem , A child of noble strain. The angels, %vith their diadems, Sang him their glad refrain. Gold and myrrh, the Wise Men brought, To the feet of the Blessed Child, Hands full of gifts, in far lands, sought, For the Babe and His Mother mild. Jean Irish, High Nine. Autumn Leaves Swirling, twirling, down the lane, Dancing, prancing, some are plain, Some are colored yellotu, red; Never seem to go to bed. Helter, skelter, this ivay, that , Each a fairy acrobat; Now they flutter ' cross your face, As the north %uind sets the pace. Brownies — each tuith pointed toe — Tripping in the twilight glow; Anyone, %vho just believes, Knows they are not Autumn Leaves!

Dark, silent shores, Slumbering In the mystic silence of the night. Today — Metallic music Echoes, As ivorkmen build a step in progress. Targe, busy cities, Hustling, Where once no white man had ever stood. Tomorrow — A great bridge, Keeping A vigil unending o ' er the bay. Amber lights, sparkling Brightly, Reflected in the blackness of the tide. Jean Grant, High Seven. Flight We cross in the morning the Bay ive all love, And circle the Bay Bridge high up above. Then fly to the hills all purple and gold, And look to the East as the morning unfolds. We cross in the evening with stars in the sky, Then we fly home, baby sea-gull and I. Philip Barber, Loiv Seven. BAY BRIDGE CEREMONIES Our Bay Bridge, man ' s mighty masterpiece, a great structure of steel, is at last completed! It was formally opened on Thursday, November 12, 1936. The ceremonies started with the band playing, while Indian run- ners, the pony express, an old-fashioned stage coach and an oxen-team from Sacramento met at the crossroads of the new bridge. Speeches were given by Governor Merriam, Ex-President Hoover, Ex-Governor Young, Charles Purcell, the chief engineer, and supervisors of the bridge. Homing pigeons carried away the great news, as Governor Merriam proceeded to the golden-linked chain. Bombs were shot into the air. Little American flags, attached to parachutes, floated slowly into the bay. The band played the " Star Spangled Banner. " The benediction was given. Governor Mere- riam cut the golden link and the great Bay Bridge was formally opened. Beverly Harvey, High Nine.  What the Constitution Means to Me The Constitution is the backbone of our nation. It is the spirit, the justified freedom by which we are able to carry on our nation. It is a national document permitting the nation to pursue a policy of freedom for each individual. When great men gathered at Philadelphia to sign this document, they signed a new nation into glory, and they created a new world of indi- vidual justice, and I have the privilege of living within that wonderful new world. Think of these privileges! Privileges that all may enjoy, rich and poor alike, and not just the high officials; privileges that make everyone some- body, and do not consign a large mass of people to be part of the ground. Through this Constitution, the alien is welcomed. Valuable foreign- born citizens have justified this privilege. Among them are Alexander Graham Bell, Edward Bok, Andrew Carnegie, Jacob Riis, and John Muir. They have all written of their happiness in the freedom granted them by the great Constitution. My father, still another naturalized foreigner, daily adds his praise to this great document. Religious freedom, freedom of speech, right of trial by jury; make every citizen more content. Rich or poor may vote, equal rights are granted for white and colored people; what wonderful laws! I am looking forward to one of the Constitution ' s greatest gifts, the right to vote. We may choose our own leaders, efficient ones, who gladly receive the burdens bestowed upon them. Leaders who can see the prob- lems of other nations and yet keep out of their battles; leaders who not only would look out for the welfare of the rich, but that of the poor. Look behind the scenes and see America before the time of the signing of the Constitution. It was a rebellious nation; wars going on all the time over taxation without representation. The Declaration of Independence, The Articles of Confederation, then that supreme document, the Con- stitution, brought a reckless nation to civilization. The Constitution is not just a set of laws, but it is the spirit of our nation, a statement of great ideals of great men. It is a declaration of freedom; it is a way of life; the soul of America, our nation. Betty Jean Hejjas, High Eight. ★ ★ Bridges! There are many kinds of bridges, The Irish, Troj an, Greek; But the earliest of all Was the log across the creek. The Bay Bridge is the grandest Of all that now exist. With its toilers of steel and many lights That penetrate the mist. The Golden Gate ' s the longest Of any single span That has ever been constructed By the hand and mind of man. Chester O. McCorkle, High Seven.  Apollo Belvedere Who is Apollo Belvedere? Don ' t you see him, over there, Rising from the mountain tops, Starting his journey? He never stops. He goes from morning till the night. He gives us warmth and healthful light. Then he disappears from sight. Apollo Belvedere, Katherine Rankin, Low Nine. The Bridge Celebration Night on the quiet waters, A giant switch suddenly thrown, Skies lighted, Searching beams through the darkness; Shouting croivds, Sputtering motors, Screeching sirens, Roaring airplanes, Blasts of steamer horns. Then gradually silence, With that great structure, Woven of pioneer dreams, Traced in silver, Against the stars. Alice Brownlee, High Eight. Tall! My grandfather is so very tall, How can they expect me to be small? Yet, when an old friend comes my way, I know just tuhat they ' re bound to say; rr Oh, Dorothy, how tall you ' ve grown, Upon your head ive ' ll put a stone. " So, if, my friend, you want to be, Never talk of height to me. Dorothy Thomas, Loiv Eight. A Summer Day The Little Blue Cow A stream is such a lovely thing, I wish I were a little blue coiv, You very often hear it sing. With teeth of red You see the birds come doivn to drink, And eyes of green, And sometimes poets, just to think. Not too fat and not too lean. In its cool ivaters, cattle wade I ' d wander around and do %vhat I please, Underneath the ivilloiv shade, Eat the grass and chase the bees. Along its banks, the otters glide, I ' d give ice cream and soda pop, And little boys sit dotun and slide. With lots of candy floating on top. Carol Coates, Low Seven. Gerald Keating, Low Seven.  Latin Goes Modern I ' m writing a limerick and say! It ' s taken me nearly all day, Though it ' s not very good I luish that you tvould Please try and give me an " A " . Ego scribo carmen die ere Usam esse paene toto die, Cum non bonum est Si tibi placet Volo mihi te daturm " A " . Margaret Cartwright, Low Nine. FRENCH French, one of the languages taught at Garfield by Miss Brush and Miss Laurens, is made more interesting by foreign moving pictures and plays shown at Wheeler Hall, on the University grounds, and at the Cam- pus Theater. Some movies that have been shown in this colorful tongue are " Camille, " " Le Lac aux Dames " (Lake of the Maidens) , " La Maternelle " (The Nursery) , " A Nous La Liberte " (To Us Liberty) . J ' ai vu " A Nous la Liberte. " C ' est l ' histoire de deux prisonniers: Louis et Emile. Un parvient a se sauver, trouve du travail et plus tard devient directeur d ' usine. Emile apres avoir fini son temps, recontre son ami, mais bientot la police est avisee que Louis est un ex-prisonnier et pour lui echapper, les deux amis se sauvent et gagnent leur vie en chantant sur les grands chemins, mais heureux de leur liberte.

BOYS ' VOLLEY-BALL The High Eight, Low Nine and High Nine volley-ball teams went through the season undefeated. In games played on home courts, Garfield teams w on by wide mar- gins. On Willard courts, the scores were very close, for the Orange and White teams were not accustomed to the outdoor courts. The greatest surprise of the season, in the volley-ball world, was the defeat of the High Nines by the Low Nines in the inter-class series. This defeat is the first of its kind in the eleven years of volley-ball history at Garfield. The High Nines put up a strong fight but were unable to subdue the Low Nines. In the other inter-class series the High Eights won an easy victory over the Low Eights. These championship teams are much indebted to " Pete " and " Whitey " for their fine coaching. Harold Trunk, High Nine. BOYS ' " BLOCK G " SOCIETY The term began with twelve original members in the " Block G " Society; four of these were officers: Ralph Tufts, president; Edgar Nelson, vice president; David Llewellyn, treasurer, and Bill Frolli, sergeant-at- arms. During the term, ten new members were initiated. Next term, we should have at least eighteen members. The more members there are, the more fun there is. If you have earned a letter, there is no reason why you should not come into the " Block G " Society. Fine white sweaters have superseded the old letters. The Big Football Dance was the talk of the season. We have duties as well as good times. We assist in Assembly organi- zation. We are permanent ushers for school activities. Whenever Mr. Hennessey sends out an " S-O-S " we are on hand. Edgar Nelson, Low Nine. TENNIS Although the main season will not start until the beginning of next spring, inter-class tennis tournaments have been successfully finished, with Harold Trunk winning the High Nine honors; Clinton Stryker winning the Low Nine; Wallace Powers the High Eight; Jack Atthowe the Low Eight; Bill Carter the High Seven, and Junior Holcomb winning the Low Seven. Under the fine supervision of Coach " Whitey " Nealson, the team proved too strong for the boys at Willard, each time they played us. Our team consists of Harold Trunk, Wallace Powers, Clinton Stryker, and Bill Carter, playing the singles; Burford Black, Dick Lefler, Philip Paige, Bob Brasfield, and Jack Atthowe playing the doubles for us. Jim Temple acted as Manager for the team. Jim Temple, High Nine.  BOYS ' ATHLETICS  BOYS ' NOON LEAGUES Spirit! Spirit and plenty of it! This is what the Garfield boy gets when he comes out to participate in Noon Leagues. The idea of the Noon Leagues is not merely the playing of games but the teaching of sports- manship and of form. The games, played according to season, are: Bas- ketball, Football, Volley-ball, Baseball and Soccer. In the thirty-one advisories of Garfield there are six hundred boys. At least three-fourths of these are athletic minded and participate in Noon Leagues. Harold Trunk, High Nine. GIRLS ' NOON LEAGUES Volleyball and kickball are the favorite Noon League games for girls. These games are intra-mural and are purely voluntary. A great spirit of rivalry is developed. Both Nancy Lyman and Alice Brownlee have won the highest Noon League award, " The Winged Numeral. " The winning classes are: Low Seven, Mrs. Wilkes; High Seven, Miss Fisk; Low Eight, Mrs. Shriver; High Eight, Mrs. Davis; Low Nine, Miss Riley; Low Nine, Miss Fraser. Lois de Normandie, High Nine. Lucile de Normandie, High Eight. GARFIELD GIRLS ' VOLLEY-BALL TEAMS The Garfield girls have three volley-ball teams which have played against Willard. They are the H7, H8, and the L9 teams. The L9 and the H8 teams were victors this semester. We owe much gratitude to the members of the teams and to our coaches, Miss Stout, Mrs. Murphy, and Mrs. Davis. Mary Stewart, High Eight. GIRLS ' " BLOCK G " Thirty-one members of the Girls ' " Block G " can be distinguished by their chic white sweaters emblazoned with orange " G ' s. " The great event of the season was the football dance. These girls serve as usherettes at school functions. Miss Harriet Monroe Stout is the sponsor of the club. Nancy Pilgrim, Low Nine.  GIRLS VOLLEY BALL GIRLS ' " BLOCK G " ROWING CREW Crews from the Ninth Grade meet every Friday, at Lake Merritt, supervised by Miss Stout. Ten rowing lessons give five points toward athletic honors. This is not an inter-scholastic sport. Each term, the crews have a barbecue and a famous final race. First Team — Coxswain, Maxine Clarke; Marjorie Arnold, Ruth Bley, Barbara Grenelle, Nancy Lyman, Sally Lyman, Henrietta La Tour, Pat Mcintosh, Jean Ottesen, Sylvia Roletto, Margaret Sawyer, Edith Rich- ards, Margaret Noble, Verona Straefer. Second Team — Coxswain, Dora Dale Rogers; Jean Reinecke, Shirley Wisecarver, Nancy Pilgrim, Mary Batchelor, Margaret Shepherd, Stella Riise, Phyllis Mingham, Elizabeth Cothrin, Jean Eggleston, Arlene Phillips, Caddie Newell, Betty Green, Marie Ryberg, Ruth Pattillo, Betty Parker. Patricia McIntosh, High Nine. THE GIRLS ' TUMBLING TEAM The Girls ' Tumbling Team is a regular school activity which meets every Monday afternoon during advisory period. Three groups under Mrs. Murphy ' s instruction, are becoming expert acrobats. Louise Murphy, High Eight. SWIMMING CLUB Every Tuesday, the Swimming Club meets at the Richmond Nata- torium. " Beginners " and " Swimmers " are instructed by Mrs. Murphy and Mrs. Davis. The Junior Life Savers are instructed by Mr. Ralph Kendrick of the Richmond Pool. The following have won their Junior Life Saving Emblems: Eyrlene Levy, Anne Morgan, Jean Ottesen, Bar- bara Cross, Florence Liking, June Spitz, Helen Jacovleff, Alice Friar and Connie Donelson. Connie Donelson, High Nine. ★ HORSEBACK RIDING The Monday and Thursday Riding Club is an extra curricular activity and is under the supervision of Mrs. Murphy and Mrs. Davis. The mounts are rented from the Athens Stables on San Pablo Avenue. Here, thirty- seven girls are learning correct riding form and are enjoying a beautiful and satisfying sport. They are instructed by Miss Parkington and Miss Cook. There will be no Gymkhana this term, but there will be a splendid one next year. Veronica Baird, Low Nine.

CAMP FIRE GIRLS The Camp Fire Girls is an organization dedicated to usefulness and beauty. First aid, handicrafts, and the principles of thrift and good health are taught. The organization was started by Dr. and Mrs. Gulick in 19 12, with about two thousand members. Now, there are three hundred thousand members, in twelve different countries. This year, as before, the Berkeley Camp Fire Girls had a doughnut drive. Lucille Coe, a member of Miss Ruth Twogood ' s Camp Fire Group, won the highest prize by selling one hundred and a half dozen doughnuts. She is in the Low Seventh Grade at Garfield Junior High School. Camp Fire Girls share many happy hours together. Mrs. Coates ' Group had a Hallowe ' en Party, each girl inviting a boy. Miss White ' s Group recently had a dinner, served by Jane Gale and Leslie Jean Smith, former Garfield students, and Helen Twogood. Helen Twogood, High Eight. THE GIRL RESERVES The Tan Amigas, the Bonnes Amies and the Seventh Grade Club represent the Girl Reserves at Garfield. The Tan Amigas had a popcorn- ball sale, to aid the camp fund, and the Bonnes Amies sold candied apples, thus adding to their treasury. This is the junior club of the Y. W. C. A. Its purpose is character building, the development of physical fitness and the enjoyment of social activities. Elaine Church, Low Nine. THE SENIOR FRIENDS The Senior Friends is an organization of Eighth and Ninth Grade girls who choose, for their proteges, girls from the Low Seven. Miss Arendt and Mrs. O ' Neill are the faculty sponsors. Not only do they help the Low Seven girls in getting adjusted to their new environment, but they plan social affairs. At the party which is held every term, the Senior Friends and their little sisters enjoy an afternoon of fun and " Nugas. " This term Natalie Harris, Beverly Harvey and Elizabeth Newton helped Miss Arendt and Mrs. O ' Neill. Sally Lou Bubb, High Nine. THE ORCHESTRA The Garfield Orchestra has been stepping out and doing things. It has some splendid new numbers which will be heard in the near future. The orchestra has had two very successful performances recently; one at the Masonic T emple, and the other in the Garfield Gym, by a small group of the orchestra ' s best players. We now have forty-five members. We meet every Tuesday and Thurs- day for orchestra practice, and the different sections meet during the week. Mr. Minzyk, our conductor, is responsible for the reputation won by this organization. Peggy Phillips, Loiu Nine.  A CAPPELLA Our A Cappella is composed of fifty-three voices, many of which are new, this term. June ' s graduating classes took twenty-four voices away. However, inspired by Mrs. Smith, the choir has done exceedingly well. This semester, Bernice Blamy is president; Sally Lou Bubb, treasurer, and Beverly Harvey, secretary. Several invitations for the choir to sing were received and accepted. One engagement was at the Northbrae Methodist Church during Educa- tion Week, November 8. The A Cappella also enjoyed singing at the Gar- field P. T. A. meeting, December i. A memorable occasion was on December 13, when the A Cappella went to San Francisco. They had a delightful ride over the bridge, a splendid swim at the Y. M. C. A., and a typical army feed at the Presidio. They sang at the Presidio and at the Calvary Presbyterian Church in San Francisco. That evening, A Cappella lifted its voice for the. last time in 1936. Beth Koch, High Nine. THE BOYS ' GLEE CLUB The sixty-eight members of the Boys ' Glee, under the direction of Mrs. O ' Neill, have made their musical contributions by singing for several organizations. They sang in a Christmas Concert for the P. T. A. with the Girls ' Glee Club and the A Cappella. This year, the Glee Club has a new accompanist, Jack Larmour. Curtis Duggan, Low Nine. THE GIRLS ' GLEE CLUB There are seventy-five girls belonging to this interesting organi- zation. The officers are Mildred Emig, President; Elaine Skinner, Vice President; Jean Goldman, Secretary; Sergeant-at-Arms, Patricia Foster; Treasurer, Elizabeth Jones; Accompanist, Mary Jane Yost; Soloist, June Dowler; Attendance Officer, Jeanne Nazro. The Girls ' Glee Club has had a very successful semester under the capable direction of Mrs. Young. As the auditorium is not in use this semester, the Glee Club was unable to give the usual number of programs. They assisted in a musical program at the last P. T. A. meeting; the A Cappella Choir and the Boys ' Glee Club sharing honors. June Dowler, Low Nine. THE GARFIELD BAND Here comes the band I Aren ' t they grand? Neiu capes of orange and white, Here comes the band! The Garfield Band is proud of its new orange and white capes, provided by the Garfield Dads ' Club and the Parent-Teacher Association. Mr. Minzyk is proud of his band. Not only do they play for our own school functions but they have furnished music for special occasions at other schools, including a Hallowe ' en gathering at the Thousand Oaks School, " Rip Van Winkle, " a play at John Hinkle Park, and the Armistice Flag- Raising Ceremony at Garfield. Mr. Minzyk presides at band practice twice a week and also gives les- sons to each separate section. Lou Newfield, Low Nine.

SCOUTS AT GARFIELD The total number of Boy Scouts, in Garfield, is 187, or 33 per cent of the boys in the school. Of these scouts, there are 58 Tenderfoots, 72 Sec- onds, 37 Firsts, 16 Stars, and 2 Life ranks. These scouts come from 27 dif- ferent troops. Robert Haddow, Life scout of Troop 37, is the highest rank- ing scout in Garfield. Marion Johnson, Life scout of Troop 8, is next highest. Two members of our faculty, Mr. Leland and Mr. Flanders, are scout masters. As in previous years, the scouts have taken charge of the flag raising each day. On Tuesday, November 10th, the day before Armistice Day, the whole school participated in a flag-raising ceremony, which was a great success. The Garfield Band, a bugle corps and the beau- tiful new silk flag presented by the G. S. A. made the ceremony most im- pressive. The following quotation from Mr. Hennessey in the daily bulletin is valued by us all: " The flag-raising ceremony last Tuesday morning was by far the most impressive and successful that Garfield has ever given. Those managing the ceremony, those taking active part, the music, and the excellent behavior of the entire school left the most pleasing impression upon all who were present. Every member of the G. S. A. should be pleased with having made possible the purchase of the beautiful silk flag, which will be used only on important occasions. " Burnham Caldwell, High Eight.  TRAFFIC NURSES LIBRARY ELECTION FLAG RAISING  OUR LIBRARY The school library plays a very important part in our school program. Indeed it would be hard for us, who are fortunate in having such a splendid selection of books to use for pleasure and information, to imag- ine a modern school without a well equipped library. " Books to Grow On " was the theme for National Book Week, ob- served November 15-20. At this time our library was gay with the attractive display of several hundred new books and colorful posters. Among these were books purchased with the money donated by the P.T.A., last Library Day. " Caddie Woodlawn, " John Newbery Medal Book of 1935, has been in great demand. A " Gift Book Plate Contest " was opened to all pupils who wished to participate. Much interest was shown in this contest. The winner will receive a book and the plate will be used in all books that have been and will be given to our library. Another contest was called the " Book Week Memory Game, " and cre- ated much interest. A list of thirty-four well known authors whose books are in the library, were printed. Pupils were asked to name as many books by these authors as they could. They were also asked if they knew who John Newbery was. They were to write the name of two of the Newbery medal books and list some famous illustrators of books. Eleanor Ehmke listed the most books. The Gleaner Staff has decided to have a staff librarian and assistant, and we are exchanging our magazine with other Junior High Schools of the Bay District. The first magazine received was from Piedmont, an ex- cellent publications which does much credit to that s chool. HEALTH AND FIRST AID The position of Nurse ' s Assistant has grown in importance until it has become a much sought after privilege. It has been given school recog- nition this year and the assistants have received arm-bands. We really believe that these students are a genuine help to Miss Foster and to Gar- field School. The assistants are: Jean Irish, Doris McLean, Edith Richards, George Yonekura, Mildred Kurki, Joanne Fraser, Stanley Le Protti, Carolyn Bo- hart and Dolores Wold. Their tasks are to summon students from their classes for examination, to assist the nurse in treating minor injuries and to check the nurse ' s books. Jeanne Howard, High Nine. ATTENDANCE This semester, the attendance department has been doing very effi- cient work. Mrs. O ' Neill is in charge and is assisted by Miss Goode. The Attendance Department has charge of all absent and tardy pupils. Most of the checkers and collectors are Ninth Grade pupils. Nurse ' s assistants, ground patrol checkers, and collectors are, also, under the Attendance Department. Miriam Livingston, High Nine.  RED CROSS This year, Garfield is actively interested in the Junior Red Cross. At the beginning of the term, two representatives, Beverly Harvey and Paul Kremser, were chosen to attend the meeting at the Berkeley High School. Our school is filling boxes to send to Guam. We also send apples and nuts to the Children ' s Hospital for Thanksgiving, and under the direction of the art teachers, the veterans, at Livermore, received greeting cards. The American Red Cross is conducting its own membership drive, this year. Mrs. Kleeberger, a member of our faculty, on leave, is the chair- man of the Berkeley campaign. Many of our teachers are district workers. The faculty membership is one hundred per cent. Are we proud? Pau l Kremser, Low Nine. GIRL SCOUTS This semester proved to be an active one for Girl Scouts. They had the privilege of being the first campers to use Wildcat Canyon. And who wouldn ' t be thrilled to spend such a glorious night out there in the wild- erness? Girl Scouts have helped many needy families by collecting food supplies and sewing garments. Girl Scouts have raised the flag at Garfield for several mornings. The ceremonies were carried on with dignity and sincerity. Any girl who is interested in Scouting may inquire at Little House, 1 8 10 Shattuck Avenue. Ruth Silver, High Eight. DRAMA We have not had our usual dramatic schedule this term, due to the auditorium being out of service. Our one event was an interesting Armistice Day Pageant given before the P. T. A. The drama was written by Miss Wilson. The entire High Ninth Grade took part. The action took place eighteen years after the signing of the Armis- tice. The Father, played by Malcolm Brown, told his children of the World War. As he recalled the heroes and humanitarians, the characters appeared upon the stage and spoke. Among those represented were Joan of Arc, the Salvation Army Lassie, the Red Cross Nurse, Cardinal Mercier, the American Doughboy, the Aviator, and the Army and Navy heroes. The pageant was presented in a reverent and dignified manner. The parents gave it highest praise. Barbara Beckwith, Low Nine. THE SCRUBS ' PICNIC It was a great day! Mr. Hennessey and the men of the faculty enter- tained ninety-seven " Low Seveners " . It was a purely masculine affair and what a good time we did have! It took six cars and one truck. Of course, we all wanted the excite- ment of riding in the truck. How that poor truck puffed and pulled up the hills! Crab Hunting, a bonfire, a weenie roast and games! A split-six for Mr. Hennessey and the faculty men! Bob Smith, Tom Whayne, Bill Gaines, Low Seven.  SPEAKING OF POETRY The G. S. A. sponsored a Gleaner poetry contest. Three prizes were awarded and thirty-seven received honorable mention. The prize poems are published in this issue. The following received honorable mention: Philip Barber, Barbara Jane Breckenridge, Alice Brownlee, Margaret Cart- wright, Carol Coates, Jane Detro, June Dowler, William Duckworth, Dorothy Easson, Charles Foster, Jean Grant, Mary Grot, Joan Hauser, Barbara Howard, Jean Irish, Helen Jacovleff, Gerald Keating, Anne Kidder, Henrietta La Tour, Sara Helen Lee, Phyllis McCarter, Chester O. McCorkle, Jr., Marian McMillan, Phyllis Mingham, Marie Morholt, Irene Paine, Clyde Paxton, Peggy Phillips, Nancy Pilgrim, Beverly Poole, Kath- erine Rankin, Marjorie Schneider, Helen Smith, Dorothy Thomas, Mary Webber, Joseph Wosser, Mary Jane Yost.

Tommy Seeburger: No. Mrs. Bagnall: Then don ' t act like an idiot! i i i Mrs. Young: Children, take out paper and pencils and write this sen- tence. Donald Paterson: I ain ' t got no pencil. Mrs. Young: Donald, how many times have I told you not to say " ain ' t got. " You should say I have no pencil — you have no pencil — they have no pencils. Donald (interrupting) : But teacher, who in heck ' s got all the pencils? i i i Miss Patton: David, my lad, this book will do half of your High School work.
