With cables of steel It spans the Bay; Roads of concrete, A broad highway. The sun in the East Casts its rays on the steel Cold and dauntless A masterpiece of zeal. BOB LLOYD, H-9. TIES OF STEEL There was one of the courageous little band of men which first came to San Francisco Bay exploring for a place to build a town who said to himself, as his diary proves to us: " Some day one of the World ' s greatest cities shall rise round this bay. " He stood near the Golden Gate as he said this. Next day the party set out to explore the land across the bay — the " Contra Costa " they called it. After three and a half days of steady travel, they encamped near the Berkeley hills. Today one can come from where these words were spoken over to the Berkeley hills in half an hour — so terrific is the economy of modern times. Then, a good day ' s travel was fifty miles or less — today, five hundred, a thousand, two thousand. The " Contra Costa " and the cliff where Anza stood are one today; made so by a giant ' s steel string which holds a roadway up, and in between the two glitters an island fairyland. What would they say could they but see the town they dreamed — arisen there before their eyes and glistening about the bay! And arching there above the blue water, a league-long road of steel.

Many new friends have been made, new experiences en- countered, and new things to do have kept us busy and interested. It has been an enjoyable ex- perience to see our twelve hundred students, coming as they do from seven different elementary schools, enter into the spirit and tradition of Garfield with vigor and enthusiasm. Our faculty and our students are striving to make the lunior High School an institution placed between the Elementary School and the senior High School in such a way that the process of education shall continue in an orderly, interesting, and unbroken manner. We are not a college preparatory school. We are a school which should offer an abundance of exploration into many fields of study, many common experiences of everyday life, and many situations which demand the give and take so necessary in this game of life. We are one of the strongest instruments in existence which will do much to preserve and perpetuate the ideals and principles of a democratic form of living. To you twelve hundred Garfielders, and you forty-seven faculty associates, I am grateful for a warm and sincere reception.

Patton GRADUATION This year the Graduation program and the Christmas pageant were joined together in one beautiful ceremony. A happy combination of groups of white- robed graduates in their processional and colorful scenes depicting the Christmas spirit as observed by children of many lands and climates was a brilliant and interesting spectacle to watch. This thrilling Graduation spectacle was made possible by the efforts of our faculty. Without the aid of the faculty, we should have been unable to have carried this program forward to success. We are particularly indebted to those teachers who directed the Christmas plays of foreign lands that were given great success. This Graduation, which was held on December 21st, ended the three joyous years at Garfield for the High Nine Class. In these three years, we graduates have learned many valuable things besides our academic studies. We have a better insight into many other fields — citizenship, statesmanship, fair play, honor. We are now ready, we feel, to begin our Senior High School work at an advantage as compared to students who have not had the privilege of a Junior High School course. We leave Garfield with joyous expectation of good school days to come. In addition to the formal graduation, a dinner was held exclusively for the graduating class. At this wonderful turkey dinner, the Garfield mothers waited on their sons and daughters — the gradu- ates. A dance, too — given for the High Nines — afterward in the cafeteria was en- joyed by them to the fullest. For this, too, we must thank the faculty. We graduates feel that we must express this thanks to the faculty. The teachers do many things while standing in the back- ground — which the students not only do not appreciate, but for which they reap all the glory and credit. Thus, as the High Nine Class leaves Garfield, they express through me their deep, sincere appreciation to the teachers, advisors, and counselors who have taught and advised them during these past three years.

HOXOlt SOCIETY OFFICERS Beverly Kirk President Richard Laughlin Vice-President Florence Avelin Representative to the Faculty William Madeira Treasurer Jean Grant . Secretary Rodney McGann L-9 Director William Fay Program Committee The Plav s the Thing A pale faced youth in a threadbare overcoat brushed past the doorman. He seemed out of place in the luxurious surroundings of the hotel lobby. Impatiently, he waited for the elevator. After what seemed a very long time to him the door opened and he strode in. " Top floor, " he whispered nervously. " You mean Mister Lubrosko ' s suite? " the operator asked dubiously. The youth nodded. With a half-incredulous glance the operator pressed a button, and they whizzed upward. In a few seconds they abruptly stopped, and the passenger stepped out onto the soft carpet. The elevator door closed noiselessly, and he was alone. " Might as well get it over with, " he thought resolutely, then entered the recep- tion room. A girl was in one corner at a large desk pecking busily at a clinking typewriter. " Is Mr. Lubrosko in? " he inquired hesitantly. " Have you an appointment? " she asked impersonally, but rather sus- piciously, too. " Yes, " he answered. " The name is Smith — John Smith. " " Oh yes, Mr. Smith, Mr. Lubrosko will see you now. " His short hair, which was flaming red in contrast to his almost grey com- plexion, seemed to stand on end as he was ushered into Mr. Lubrosko ' s presence. The distinguished producer of Broadway hits was reclining on a couch. Nearby was an ashtray, overflowing with cigar butts. His short, fat little body seemed lost in the maze of cushions. " Good day, sir, " the youth started weakly. Then — with dreadful anticipation — " Have you . . . decided? " " Are you Smith? " queried the producer, as he lit another cigar. Seeing the youth nod, he looked through a drawer and drew out a manuscript. " It ' s not the type I want, " he said casually. " Sorry. " Silently the youth took the sheaf of papers offered him. " Thank you, " he managed to say, and hurriedly left. In a moment he was out in the street again, tears of disappointment welling in his eyes. " It ' s back to-the farm for me, " he thought bitterly. Then he looked down at the neatly typed manuscript. " John Smith ' s flop, " he mused, and tossed it out into the busy street. As he started to walk toward the tenement section where he lodged, a shout rang out above the bedlam all around. He turned, and was startled to see a pudgy figure in shirt-sleeves puffing down the sidewalk amidst the amused stares of pedestrians. " Mr. Lubrosko! " he cried, in genuine amazement. " Smith! I mistook you for someone else! Your play ' s great stuff! Where is it? " For answer, the youth turned toward the intersection. In the street was a muddy, tangled, hopelessly scattered and torn bunch of unrecognizable scraps. " I threw my play away, " he said, sadly, and shrugged his shoulders. Silently he turned, and the crowd was about to swallow him up when the half-paralyzed producer suddenly came to life. A " Mona Lisa " smile played across his features, and his eyes twi nkled subtly. " Wait, Smith, " he called. " Why prolong the agony? " the youth muttered almost inaudibly as he picked his way back to the little man. " Yes? " he asked simply. " I just remembered, " the producer beamed with evident relief. " I gave you the wrong manuscript. " REED STONE, High Eight. Newspaper Mam Did you ever think about the newspaper man? For he is really the most important man in your community. He works day and night in places unheard of Because he knows its his duty to get news for his customers. He takes pictures in the most horrible yet exciting places. He writes about homes and people to bring sympathy to the hearts of his fans. He never writes about what he has done for his community, But he just writes about what somebody else has done for it. So be sure to remember when you read a newspaper That the people who are responsible for it are really your closest friends. A Canary ' s Frame of Mind I am a canaary, and my name is Butch. I pride myself on being a good singer, and my preferred accompanists are the vaccum cleaner, typewriter, and saxo- phone. My good for nothing mistress, that Ellis kid, thinks I don ' t like her. I like her mother, though. Strangely enough, mistress cleans me on Saturday and Sun- day. I see nothing of her on week days; her mother takes care of me. Since as I belong to her, I think she should take care of me all the time. That ' s why I don ' t like her. Elizabeth ellis. You are to guess this friend of mine, And if you do we ' ll say it ' s fine. His hair is blonde, his eyes are blue, His skin is fair with a freckle or two, His height is right, his weight is light, His speed to lunch is a regular flight. He toots a horn in Garfield Band, That slides first in then out again. He runs and jumps and plays and sings, And does a lot of other things. DOROTHY MICHEL, High Eight. This Friend of Mine CARTER NORRIS, Low Nine. The Haunted House Yes, it was a haunted house, The boards would creak and groan, And when the wind would blow at night, The house would creak and moan. Not only roared the thunder loud, And shook the earth below, But from the house there shot a light, A fierce and horrible glow. Yes, it was a haunted house, Ghosts could be seen around, And when the lightning flashed above, There ' d be a terrible sound. The neighbors from their homes rushed fort h, Rushed from their beds as snug, And when they reached the haunted house, Behold! A mouse and lightning bug. VIVIAN VAUGHN, Low Nine. The Shadow of the Horse on the Window With a roar and screeching of brakes, a car stopped in front of a group of small cottages. Two men got out of the car and made their way to the manager ' s office, where they applied for a cottage. About a week later they told the manager that they were going away. But they would be back from time to time; so they would like it if the manager would hold the cottage for them and not to let anyone occupy the cottage while they were away. The manager said they must pay the rent for the time that they were away. The men agreed and left. A few days later a family by the name of Johnson came to the manager and asked him if he had a cottage for rent. The manager said that he didn ' t have any cottages left open, but he had a cottage where the people had left but were coming back soon. And that they had paid their rent for the time they were gone. Mrs. Johnson said that she would take the cottage and when the people came they could have the cottage back. The manager saw that he could make some extra money so he said it was all right, that they could move in. The Johnsons were all sitting around the fire when Ernest suddenly exclaimed, " Say Mom, have you read this article in the paper about a big bank robbery? It says they stole about one hundred thousand dollars and the police can ' t find them. " They discussed the bank robbery until they went to bed. Presently one of the children said, " Mother, doesn ' t that shadow on the window look like a horse? " They all looked, but thought nothing of it. About a week later in Berkeley, Ernest told them about an automobile accident in the Santa Clara Valley where a car ran off the road into a ditch. The man who was in the car was taken to the nearest hospital where he kept repeating, " The shadow of the horse on the window " over and over again. The police thought he saw a horse and that that had caused him to run into a ditch to avoid hitting the animal, so it was considered solved. But they thought it wasn ' t solved because they remembered what they saw at Santa Cruz. The next month they went to Santa Cruz and stayed in the same cottage. They were going home the next day, so Mrs. Johnson was cleaning. She saw a rip in the mattress and got her needle to fix it. She put her hand in the mattress to smooth the stuffing and she pulled out about ninty thousand dollars in paper money. She hid the money and telephoned the police. When the Chief of Police came he said, " Why Mrs. Johnson, these are the bills that were stolen in that bank robbery, but where are the criminals? " " I think I can answer that, " she said. So she explained: " When the bank was robbed, the criminals drove here. They stayed a night and hid the money in the mattress. Thinking that nobody would find it here and that they could come back and get their money whenever they should want it. Then the criminals separated. One went down the Santa Clara Valley and became involved in a serious accident in which he was killed. Before he died he kept repeating " The shadow of the horse on the window. " This made me suspicious. When we came down here for our vacation I was lucky enough to find the money. And I telephoned you. That is my version of the story. " Mrs. Johnson received five thousand dollars for her part in the solving of the mystery and the returning of the money. A year later a man on his death bed confessed of his part in the crime and it was almost exactly the same story as the story Mrs. Johnson told to the Chief of Police nearly a year before. JOHN JORY, High Nine. " Is Steel Beautiful? " " Is steel beautiful? " " YES. " Your next question may be, " Why? " Did you ever see it poured white hot into a ladle that holds ninety tons? As it comes swirling, gushing out of the fiery furnace falling fifteen feet or more, with golden sparks flying everywhere, the hot molten steel looks as if you had just dumped every color in the rainbow on the world. It comes pouring forth with all its might and force. White flames leap from the ladle and rise twenty feet or even higher into smoky air. Stifling heat waves scorch your face. The steel is now poured from the ladle thirty feet into gigantic molds as immense blue flames jump and light the interior of this gigantic structure. These facts may seem a little far fetched, but they are all true. This is why steel is beautiful. ERNEST GOODNER. Song of Christmas Penmanship Sing out you Carolers! Sing out this morn; Sing songs of the eve When Christ was born. Sing songs of love, Sing songs of joy; Sing songs of Mary Who gave this boy. Sing songs of gathering Songs of meeting; Songs of the spirit Of Yuletide greeting. Sing out once more Again of love. Sing out to Him Our Lord above. JIM FARRELL, Low Nine. Some people write as though they enjoyed it, smooth, even and firm. Some people write as though they were bored, slow, jerky and crazy. Some people write conspicuously, large, important and uninteresting. Others write the word of God. Some people write so sadly, on a tearstained page. Some people write in a hurry, fast, sprawled and without punctuation. Some people write like school girls, squared, cramped and cute. Others write as though inspired. MARGIE GARGES, High Eight. One Day One fine day, not too hot, not too cold, We went for a walk. We came upon a well, that was empty, And looked down, and saw nothing. And then, very suddenly, We all turned around, and there he was, A bird, with his wing half broken. We took him up, And then, he seemed very much brighter. And home we went, contented. BERNARD PEPPER, High Nine. M V S I C A Capella Choir The A Cappella, under the excellent direction of Mrs. Iva Smith consists of fifty-four active members. Many of these are new this term. This popular organ- ization has had two very successful appearances this term. They were made at the P. T. A. of Garfield and the P. T. A. of Jefferson. Girls ' Glee Club The Girls ' Glee Club is under the able direction of Mrs. Young and comprises eighty girls. The girls and boys combined made a very favorable appearance before the Garfield Assembly this term. Boys ' Glee Club Fifty boys, also directed by Mrs. Young, comprise the Boys ' Glee Club this semester. Orchestra We are very proud of the forty-five members in the Orchestra, which is directed by Mr. Minzyk. They have played for the Methodist Church, the P. T. A. of Garfield and a Moving Picture Show. Band Mr. Minzyk ' s band, one of the finest in Berkeley, is greatly appreciated by Garfield. Its seventy members have played at the Thousand Oaks School and at the Dads ' Club Meeting of Garfield. FLORENCE AVELIN, High Nine. The Hills I love the hills where dew drops sometimes fall. When months have passed the hills once more I ' ll roam, Since the leaves have fallen, the trees look bare and tall, And I do not hear the birds soft calls, So I wander from the hills to home. LA VERNE CALLAGHAN, Low Nine. ATHLETICS H-9 Boys had a successful season by beating Willard twice, and the faculty twice. The only defeat was at the hands of the Y. M. C. A. instructors. L-9 Girls came out victorious over Willard by beating them two out of three games. It was a good series. L-9 Boys were successful by beating Willard six times and the faculty twice. The faculty pulled through with one defeat. The Y. M. C. A. defeated them once. H-8 Girls beat Willard out of two games. The Willard gals put up a good fight, but couldn ' t equal the home school gals. H-8 Boys took a beating from Willard L-9 when Willard beat them by two games. The H-8 boys beat the L-8 boys only. H-7 Girls only played L-8 gals twice. They won one and lost one. They were both exciting games. Block " G " Society is a society of boys who have won their block " G ' s " . The society acts as ushers at all assemblies. They have a dance once a term for the boys in the society. The officers for the term were: Low and High Xine Beat Faculty The Faculty Men lost two games each of the High Nine and Low Nine Volley Ball Teams. Fresh from victories against Willard, our students mowed down the faculty despite excellent playing on the part of Mr. LeTendre, Mr. Triolo, Mr. Voorhees, and Mr. Corley, who sparked the faculty team. Ever popular at Garfield, Noon Leagues were at their best this fall. Under the able supervision of Mr. Corley and Mr. Voorhees, volleyball, passball, and later, basketball were played by everyone at noon. Noon leagues are our favorite sport at Garfield because any student who wishes can compete and have fun and exercise. Bill Maderia . Jim Farrell . John O ' Driscoll Richard Chase President . . . Vice-President Secretary and Treasurer . . Sergeant at Arms FRANK MONNINGER, Low Nine. Noon Leagues HUGH SINGREY, Low Eight. ASSISTANTS LOCKER ASSISTANTS make Mr. Leland ' s work much easier. They take the locks to the advisories and collect the tags. They do much work to straighten out mix-ups about locks or lockers. OFFICE ASSISTANTS perform many duties to help out in the office. They run errands and also keep files and answer the questions of anyone who comes into the office. COUNSELORS ' ASSISTANTS cheerfully do small jobs for the counselors. They run errands like all other assistants, help file yellow cards, and help the counselors in many other ways. LIBRARY ASSISTANTS save Mrs. Bellus and Miss Patton much time and labor by their work. They stamp library permits, issue books to students, and put the books in their proper places on the shelves. These students, while being of great service, receive training that will be valuable later. ATTENDANCE ASSISTANTS do much work that it would be impossible for Miss Nelson to do alone. Besides running errands, they collect absence slips and do many other necessary things. GARFIELD JUNIOR CRAFTSMEN AND THE HISTORY PROJECT In September, 1938, Miss Lowrey of Garfield Junior High School organized a craft and hobby club to develop and bring forth the creative talents of gifted children. In the widest sense " Craft and Hobby " embrace any cultural interest, diver- sion, and avocation which absorb an individual ' s leisure time. Further knowledge, greater skill, and keener enjoyment of individual interests are essential for the complete expression of one ' s personality. The club serves not only as a central organization to coordinate and dis- seminate information, but offers the boys and girls a place to work and receive specific aids and service in their particular hobby. With this in mind, the club- house has been equipped with work benches and materials. Here they may come before school, noon hour, or study period. A library of books, pictures, magazines, and pamphlets on the particular field the club is emphasizing for the semester is maintained. The school library is very valuable in assisting in research. Meetings are held once a week, through which are developed a common bond of hobby fellowship and common ground for stimulating exchange of craftsmanship. Prominent hobbyists and outstanding craftsmen have come to talk to the group to encourage and stimulate interest. There will be a contest in December prior to the final competition for entry of models in the exhibit on Treasure Island. Basis for awards will be judged on: Originality, execution, artistic effect. In addition to the model competition, there will be a literature contest. ESSAYS: Maximum 250 words. SUBJECTS: " How my Hobby has Enriched my Leisure Time. " " How my Hobby has Helped my School Work. " POETRY: Minimum 12 lines. Maximum 72 lines. DRAMA: One Act. Dialogue. Maximum time 15 minutes. Radio Broadcast on Organization and Experience of Garfield Junior Craftsmen. Arrangements have been made for this dialogue to be given over KFRC with the " Old Craftsman, " who speaks twice a week on this station, and who has visited and sponsored the craft shop this fall. Judges, authorities in various fields of art, crafts, and literature, will be chosen and their decision final in awarding prizes. ANCHORS A WEIGH Strange craft have been mooring on the Garfield shores of late. The gay colored, many-oare d boats of the Vikings, who made their voyage about 1000 A.D., and the " great grey ships " of our navy of today, are finding their places in dry dock, in the craft room. Separating the Viking ships and the cruisers, coast guard cutters, submarine chasers, and their companions, are ships as different in appearance as they are in point of time. One thing they have in common — each silently tells of some phase of American history. The bright colors of the early ships, the " Santa Maria, " the " Golden Hind, " the " Half-Moon, " the Spanish galleons, are dimmed by the sinister black of the slave ships, which came even before the " Mayflower. " The fights and fighters of the early days come to live in our memories again as we look at the " Bonhomme Richard, " the " Constitution, " the Privateers of 1812, the " Kearsarge, " and those ships that mark the end of wooden vessels in our navy, the " Monitor " and the " Merrimac. " We see the Whalers and the Clippers, called the " Darling of the Seas. " Here is the " Columbia, " the first ship to carry the United States flag around the world, and there the " Savannah, " the first steamship to cross the ocean. The boats of the inland waterways — canoes, flatboats, rafts, canal boats — all show the slow improvement of means of travel and communication in the new country, with the " Clermont " marking a new epoch in ship building. If the freighters, schooners, tug boats, and tramp steamers seem a little too business- like, look at the " Showboat, " of Mississippi River fame or the stream-line cabin cruiser of today. These are the ships, but what of captains and crew? They are the boys and girls of Miss Riley ' s American History classes, all learning to love and appreciate their country a little more through this experi ment in model making with the Junior Craftsmen. Not only ships of the sea but ships of the air dock in the Junior Craftsmen ' s shop. Many airplanes preen their shiny plumage there. Our pictures show but a small part of what the Junior Craftsmen and the History Project have done. There are some 600 members in all. Watch our Craft Club grow! 1.

GARFIELD STUDENT COURT In order to give the students of Garfield all the liberties possible and that they might have the experience of governing themselves to the greatest possible extent, the principal has decided to initiate a court of justice for the Spring Term of 1938. It is to be organized as follows: Name— GARFIELD JUSTICE COURT Section 1. Membership. There shall be a Justice Court composed of seven judges, appointed by the Executive Committee at the beginning of each semester. One of the seven shall be appointed Chief Justice. Section 2. Duties. This court shall sit for the trial of certain types of cases regarding student discipline and control as recommended by the Principal. Section 3. Meetings. Meetings shall be held at the call of the Chief Justice and the Student Body Director, or the Principal. GRAND JURY Section 1. Membership. There shall be a Grand Jury selected each semester consisting of eleven jurors and appointed by the Student Body President, Student Body Director, and the Principal. Both boys and girls are eligible to appointment. One of the members shall be appointed as Chairman. Section 2. Duties. The grand jury shall be assigned to special and specific duties as occasion demands. They shall aim to improve the morale, habits, customs, and procedures of the Student Association. They will serve primarily as a fact finding and investigating body. Section 3. Meetings. They shall meet each week with the Student Body President, Student Body Director, and Principal. LITERARY ROOK EXHIBIT Several hundred new books, bought for Garfield, were on display in the school library during the month of October. There were not only story books, but also many reference books, and books of other classes, which have been enjoyed very much. The books have proved to be a worthy purchase to all who enjoy the library. This semester many more pupils have found their way to the library and have learned to like and appreciate it. ADMISSION DAY CELEBRATION On September ninth, Garfield School celebrated Admission Day in a very fitting manner. The Ninth Grade put on a skit representing the day when the Oregon brought the news that California was admitted to the Union, and de- livered the seal of the State to Yerba Buena (now San Francisco). The ceremony was concluded with the raising of the Bear flag and the Stars and Stripes, and a solo trumpet selection by Robert McElroy, " I Love You, Cali- fornia, " and " The Star Spangled Banner.
