The Gennus R GRADUATION NUMBER WINTER '31 Luther Burbank Jr. High School Los Angeles, California Q2-in . Milestones I Class of Winter '32, you have reached the first great mile- stone in your educational experience. However, remember that intellectual, moral, and spiritual GROWTH is the law of a well- regulated life. Constantly use the many opportunities sur- rounding you day and night to better prepare yourself for your life work. Build thee more stately mansions, O my soul, As the swift seasons roll! Let each new temple, nobler than the last, Leave thy low vaulted past! . Shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast, Till thou at length art free Leaving thine outgrown shell by 1ife's unresting sea. S. V. Gooo, Principal It is your good fortune that you are graduating in this Bicentennial year when the nation is celebrating the two hun- dredth anniversary of George Washington's birth. You are being constantly reminded of the fine qualities of this great man-his devotion to his family, friends, and countryg his broad visiong his unselfishnessg his love of peaceg his abiding interest in education. Valued and loyal graduates of Luther Burbank Junior High School, grateful for the opportunities it has afforded you, you are especially appreciative of Washington's interest in universal education. It is our confident hope that you may develop these qualities that made him distinguished and that as splendid citizens you too may contribute much to the advancement of the interests of your nation. ' CLAIRE EPLER, Girls' Vice-Principal You, the members of the W'32 class, are fortunate to have your graduation' fall in this Bicentennial year, when we are especially honoring the memory of the Father of our country. It is hoped that each member of this class will be impressed by the true value of this noble character, and we trust that you all will try to emulate the splendid example set by this great American: Washington's courage and patriotism, his unsel- fishness and self-sacrifice, his wisdom 'of action and his purity of soul, will arouse the imagination and inspire the soul of everyone who loves his country.

Farewell to Burbank We bid thee farewell, Luther Burbank, As a lasting inspiration, As a school that has helped us develop Respect, esteem, and cooperation, You will always stay in our memories, Proud and grateful we shall be. To have attended such a stately scl-1001 Was a real opportunity. The friendly guidance' so freely given By our faculty has left a store Of abundant knowledge from which through life We may draw in our quest for more. So, for the Class ol Winter '32, As the time nears to say goodbye, We hope we may leave a memory ' Of loyalty that will never die. Margaret A. Lientz ' far the Clam of W'32 f,ff?s4'Q?- X' .

To prove that Virginia Ashley is popular, we surely need no assistanceg she lost the Lost and Found ,but her popularity is in evident existence. You may call it Fate, and again it may be luck, for Helen Austin has just purchased a Whopper ten-ton truck. . Luba Babich declares that she simply loves grammar fshe wouldll but we are inclined to think that out of her sight , is understood. To say Beth Bailey is no good is absurd: she can actually imitate, mock, or scare a bird. As an aviatrix of distinction, conspicuous Dorothy Baker has certainly be- come an efhcient record-breaker. Gentle Vera Margaret Barnes as Secretary of War favors attacking radio announcers who have the gift to bore. Ah, poor Virginia Bicknell! A tale of woe both befit her, for she only got - up at stump trying to be an endurance pole-sitter. Myrtle Brennan's paintings are enough to stir the heart: ah, she might paint Mona Lisa's sister, or some other work of art. When we consider the success of talented June Brown, we have the circus's most famous acrobat and clown. La Vonne Butts has always been an atheltic sort, so we're not surprised to see her blazoned queen of the tennis court. Lillian Cecere,with tightfitting bonnet and blouse, will make a fine successor to Jane Adams of Hull House. - Margaret Cheney we are sure will soon surmount the grade, through all the stars decree, alas! that she be an old maid. X Oh, ho! whom have we now? Edna Colcscott, an' no less, Porto Rico's able governor, or rather governess . Marian Cooper, the diminutive little Mary , is now appearing opposite our Western cowboy, Jerry. The last work of Miss Crothers I Sis ,or is it Mary?l is a Greek translation of the Webster-'s dictionary. Florence Cushman surely discovered a profitable business when she became an artist in New York making pictures of noted men. ' Frances'Cummings is a librarian of high rank, and they're fortunate to have her now at Luther Burbank. ' It's unanimously agreed that Jeanne Dale should be put down as Sells Floto Circus's distinguished, leading clown. As for Lina Danna's future, there is plenty of hope, for she's letting her picture be used to advertise Snowflake Soap. Arleen Dechon is studying grammar fshe always was a talkerl, but now she has to use well-balanced words as a tight-rope walker. Florence Dickey's efforts are at present centered directly around inventing a typewriter that automatically spells correctly. May Dowle has really accomplished a very commendable feat, to win the world's medal for fast speech, she has only Tom Dutcher to beat, - , fZ:2 f.:':-1-: gli Mount Vernon We hail thee, majestic Mount Vernon, enshrined in the hearts of all As a Landmark of Liberty, Hope, and Peace, portrayed in each sturdy wall. Your stately mansion on a lofty bluff commands a wide, delightful view That retreats beyond the horizon in a hazy mist of blue. . The peaceful silence of river and forest, the songs of birds, the sun, Blended with the Howers' odor, have our hearts completely won. A vivid, alluring remembrance of Washington lurks in the setting- This sacred and beautiful spot a person is long in forgetting, The treasures which Washington owned and that were to him so dear Could not be in a more fitting place than one discovers here. We stand in reverence before theeg thy charm and fascination Will forever be, Mount Vernon, an enticing inspiration. - Margaret A. Lientz, A9 We admire Hazel Eastwood's genius, yet admit we wish she'd cease because her latest noise producer violently disturbed the peace. Dorrell Edmondson is so popular that everyone wonders why. Is it because sne owns several candy stores? we question with a sigh. All are fortunate who know or even chance to meet her, for Dorothy Everett is undoubtedly the champion candy eater. Everybody knows that at her present rate. Fay Farris will soon be a hefty heavyweight' '. Where advancement is concerned, Thais Fisher's going some , with her classes in public speaking for the blind and deaf and dumb. Now, who could ever guess that June Foreman has begun a drive favoring two demerits for gum instead of one? Victoria Freeman, because of her superior esteem, has joined the staff of reporters: Society News her theme. As a dancer Connie Fuller will win eternal fame, for here she has already made-.for herself a name. As superintendent of an orphanage, eflicient Carolyn Glover in a motherly .-X,,L way over the wee ones is known to hover. From the Genius Staff to winning the Pulitzer Prize, we've the pleasure of seeing our Gladys Goncz rise. Marion Glover doesn't dare venture far from hr nie at any cost-beacause her vanity case might drop, and without it she'd be lost. As a lion tamer of renoun we view our Francais Greeneg or maybe in the follies: the choice yet to be seen. Through her scientific efforts, Carol Greenfield, we're advised, has recently returned from Sweden possessor of the Nobel Prize. Lip-reading is no more: Isabell Griggs is positive. You can hardly see girls' . lips, such attention to them they give, Charlotte Hagaman, who once thought of the midwest farm, is now prop- rietress of the world's largest School of Charm . Marguerite Hamilton- has gone to quite a fuss in hopes of discovering the Island of Aeolus. It's very hard to mention Lillion Hansen's weakess here, but in mastering history she'll spend many a year. We're delighted to hear that Jean Harmon has taken up golf: her success so far has been-ah, well, please excuse me, while I cough! These artistic souls have our hearts completly won, and when speaking of them, we name Frances Isabel Harrington. We've another society miss'f who gets her clothes from Paris: you,1l not be surprised to hear that she is Alice Harris. In Evelyn Haupt it's easy to see a teacher of Algbra at L.A.J.C. In typing and athletics watch Louise Hensel go: a future record-breaker at the home plate or home row. Any old shoes Elaine Hoglund will be glad to take for keeps as she has of late become a dealer in antiques. To carry on like the modern youth would thoroughly dismay her, so Lucille Holmes has become, instead, a champion chess player. She hasn't changed a bit Creferring to Dorothy HornJ, for she's always been quite noisy, we're forced to say with scorn. Helen Hulbert as Chief of Police, and also a former guard, can understand Uexperienta docet , as a cop in Scotland Yard. ' Ruth Inslee, indeed, has always been so tall: her job, a giant in a circus sur- prises not at all. A On the piano Betty Jenkins is really going some -she can almost play as swiftly now as she chews her gum. Nathlie Kegans' future ambition is not in the silly class: for trying to escape dishwashing can be serious, alas! ' Eunie May Keith's etiquette book, How to Stand and Sit , has evidently made in town a most terrific hit. Dolly Ann Kensit reports that there has been a remarkable sale of her famous booklet, How to Get Thin by Mail . Margaret Key, the best dressed women, to fashion experts did refer, but the fashion experts now for ideas go to her. A The book that Eva King has put her name and picture in is Why I Think Rouge and Lipstick Are Harmful to the Skin. With her piano playing Knot the tuba or the hornskil, we've a future Pader- ewski, or is it Meryl Kornski? ' - Modest Frieda -Lange, as no doubt you've read, joined the Art of Public Speaking and is now its head. 1 w - We are forced to think and state that Mary Lee's ambition, to be a great prize fighter, will bring a Militant Maryf' Condition. Margaret A. Lientz surely thinks it acrime that she can't buy, a La Salle or Packard for a dime. Ruth Luce has exerted her numberless abilities far as executive of the Need- lework Guild and also the D.A.R. - Hard though it is to tell what everyone is doin', we know a tapfdancing record has been made by Dorothy McEwen. Eloise McGovern is conscientiously striving to improve her present know- ledge of high and fancy diving. Margaret McKee is an undisputed singer of highest reputeg indeed, she'S very well fixed with admirers who her horn will toot , Isabel McNamara, as a lawyer, a convincing case should present with her never-failing talent in the gift of argument. ' Then there's Edna McNulty: sing her praises long and loud, for she's estab- lished a typing record of which everybody's proud. Margucritta McRoberts would never think of saying a'wordg she simply talks without thinking, 'though she's 'most two' small to be heard. Dot lVlartinson's 'ambition would cause your brain to whirlg she's laying plans to open soon an exclusiue school for girls. ' ' . What future years will reveal, only time canrtellg and yet as a manicurist we're sure to discover 'Eileene Maxwell. i -' Roberta Meredith it seems simply loves to bore us, for she some time ago join- ed the Sympathy Chorus. ' Under Hazel rMinkler's gentle, guiding hand there'll be a bedtime story for the kiddies of radio land. Grace Moore is 'playingopposite the famous Mickey Mouse in Thirty Ways to Coik an Egg? Everyone expects a full house. There's really little doubt but that Jean Murray's grades will rise: she may even win a ribbon yet-if there's a booby prize. She is now a nurse, but since she doesn't like to hurry, soon as a mattress tester we may find Nellie Murray. l A former L. B. student Nelle Nelson, has surely done her duty, toward bring- ing honor to her school as a nationally known bathing beauty. Rae Parker has, so to speak, let her bicycle business ride . She is manag- ing a fancy tea room, and teaching bridge on the side. i. Katherine Penny's been promoted from making delicious fudge to the en- viable position of state supreme court judge. She served food in a busy Cafe, but sampled too much fand howl, S0 we learn our Claudia Price is serving tooth picks now. To Louise Proctor, now, when folks say, I'm pleased teI'me6tCh9I', they should know that they're addressing Burbank's popular' gym teacher- We all knew that Sally Prosser has accumulated wealth on her famous oblong circular, The Royal Road to Health. With that refrigerated manner everybody knows Pat Roberts makes 2 first-rate ambassador to the Eskimos. i Minnie Rosenberg says that grammar is so stiff she's moving to an island where people won't know the dif . l Margaret Sage has as one of her distinctive faults an overpowering Impulse for turning somersaults. Q As ballroom dancing teacher, Lorraine Sanderson's done a great deal: nobody's finished her classes who couldn't dance the Virginia Reel. No one can be blamed who is exceptionally eager to meet the great toe dancer Miss Blanche Elva Segar. She wanted to be a wild cow-girl, but the horse so ill-manneredly bucked her that Dorothy Shouse gave it up and is now a very tame riding instructor. Ah, ha! Dolores Sigler to the housewife's task does look: it is very easily seen by reading her new cook book. The Fundamentals of Algebra will probable be read far: Ruth Simon- son's to write them, when sae finds out what they are. Communication with Mars won't be aided by Marion Slade, for we might have to learn their heroes, she's rightfully afraid n lt's very hard to tell what future years will carry, but we're sure that Mildred Spicer will be a missionary. What a surprise to find that the Secretary of Labor is none other than our friend, Victoria Tabor. Elizabeth Wagner 'is still hunting, as you have no doubt guessed, for the inventor of grammar. We wish her good luck in that quest. Lorna Watkins' fame was made by How to Catch a Whale , she neglected adding a Of a Cold, but goes into great detail. As a lyric fleeriel soprano on the Metropolitan stage Judy White is swiftly becoming quite the latest rage. Georgianna Wicher, just as quiet as a mouse, now occupies a seat in the front of the Marvel Opera House. H Lzel Williams to everyone's pleasure, and with no hesitation, accepted the presidency of the State Board of Education. i - EML cnseassn ' wan MME5 Y... orf-,4H-f1M- wsu.

Friends, can you imagine our happy James Brady in the city nursery doctor- ing babies? , Bob Breckenridge in days to come we shall see a butterfly catcher in far Sicily. And young Kenneth Burnham, that jovial lad, went over to London and spent all he had. Bob Burrows as a dog catcher has missed his high aim-he hoped as a book- worm to win himself fame. . Of course, we have Lawrence Burrows too: a big-game hunter, now keeper of a zoo. Robert Burrows was an active lad, but now alas,we find him living calm and quiet in the state insane asylum. Earl Casebeer in the jungle surrounded by spears beholds on his captor a necklace of ears. Homer E.

Old Pete Crossley with his firey fleece has made a great record as Chief of Police. Y- - -Y 7 -f Good old Bob D'Amico five pounds has just lost while reducing his father's candy cost. At Merritt Davis we laugh in high gleeg he's scoring hits as Lon Chaney. And here's Jerry De Hoog-we'll give him a cheer: watch the sport page for his future career. At Thomas Dutcher we gaze in surprise: he looks so dumb, yet is so wise!

Charles Godett of Burbank fame makes the marionettes that dance and play on the Paris stage like little flapperettes. Charlie Green seeks a path of pain: cannibals in Africa he will tame. Vahe Haig is now on a Big League team, the outcome of his child hood dream. Sterling Hairell is kept on the constant hop: he curls bobbed hair in a barber shop.

Bob Hawes is a glorious spender: he makes his money as a peanut vender. Orville Haylett Jr. sailed over the seas to find Oriental rugs that would please.

When we find Earl Zebina McCully in the Hall of Fame, we'll understand, from his flowery name. Lloyd McDannald loves the mountains and lakes, but he'd greatly prefer to have ice-cream and cakes. ' Robert McGifIin is a painter of signs and leaves his mark wherever he dines. Danny Mclntyre with Tarzan on his mind is very closely guarded in a padded cell confined.

He has hidden it, Hidden it 'way down underground, Where no one would think it could be found. He keeps it there while his strength holds out, Till he grows weary and lets it out. It sets the sky afiame, It rushes out with an angry mind, And the sun goes on and leaves it behind. Katheleen Brumner, B8 GIRLS' SPORTS Most of the girls in Luther Burbank have been entering very enthusias- tically into the sports and field activities this semester. The two sports which the girls seem to favor are base-ball and basket-ball. The various games played during the semester have been base-ball,basket-ball, hand-ball, tennis, and horseshoes. The homeroom teams which have won the greatest number of games in basket-ball are home rooms 158, 201, 1302, and 208G in the senior division, and in the junior division are 260 and 154. For base-ball the leading home rooms have been 158, 302, and D.S. 4. The self-testing events which have now brought to aconclusion the class work of the girls' physical education for the semester give an opportunity for each girl in each squad to make her individual record. This semester squad III of period I has received the highest number of points for these self-testing events. Mary Smith is the leader of this squad, and Mildred Caminetti is the team captain. Squad V of period IV with Laur- etta Williams as leader and Roberta Meredith as captain lost by U24 of a point. The following scores, which include all grades, tell who won the highest number of points in each event. For basket-ball goal-shooting two A9's, Claudia Price and Ruth Simonson won, having made a record of 15 baskets a minute.. I Vivian Kuder, an A8, Elaine Hoglund and Katherine Penny, A9's, ran, the 60-yard dash in 7 4X5 seconds. Winning 10 out of a possible 10 serves in volley-ball are Margaret Nagel, a B7, and Helen Wilson and Alice Green, A8's. ' n The record for soccer throw and catch is 10 out of 10. There are two in the B8's, three in the A8's, five in the B9?s, and five in the A9's who are holding that record. ' Phyllis Thomure, an A7, holds the school record in horseshoes, having made a score of eight out of a possible ten. ' , BOYS' SPORTS Since the opening of Luther Burbank in 1927, sports have played an ever increasingly-active part in the lives of the students. There has been more enthusiasm in the games at noon and after school. The cooperation and sports- manship have grown greatly. Among the various activities of this term have been foot-ball, base-ball, basket-ball, soccer, and volley-ball. - It seems that foot-ball comes first in the minds of the students. In this sport 155 has won the championship for the second consecutive year having never been defeated or scored against. 206 won an undisputed junior cham- pionship but was defeated in the play off by 155. A school record was estab- lished by Jerry DeHoog quarterback for 155 by scoring 18 touchdowns during the season, five of which were made in one game. One of the features in 104's playing was the brilliant kicking of Sterling Hairell. , Base-ban is also an important pastime of the students. -L L BOYA1' 'll H0511-dFo.e ey,5vmyCv1.e, Ga 1'5- Behind the steady pitching of F. W. Wilson, 155 won three consecutive championships, while 258 stormed through to a championship in the fourth round, Don Pulford being undoubtedly the outstanding figure both in hitting and pitching. Soccer hasn't been as popular as the other activities, although some of the teams enjoyed it immensely. Basket-ball is another of the favorite sports. Every team is striving to win a letter in this activity. There are many strong teams playing an active part here. Volley-ball has been the least patronized among the activities. It has been played ,at noon along with baseball. H. R. 109 is the leading team in this sport. In each of the afterschool sports 100 points are given to the winners in each division, while at noon only 50 points are awarded the home room which collects the greatest number of points receives the school achievement banner, which is awarded each year to the winning team. During the semester a good-sized group of boys was organized for both tumbling and pyramids. These boys appeared publicly only once, on Fathers' Night, at which time they proved a decided attraction. The tumblers have done more advanced work this year than heretofore. The pyramids have had new equipment in the form of double ladders and two six-foot iron rings which has enabled them to make some new and interesting designs. 1lC0 THE GLANCER Extra! Extra! The depression is over! If you don't believe it, just ask one of the poor A9's who has recently completed an essay, or who has, per- haps, been struggling through the final exams. It's quite a job to have to con- centrate on The Development of Education in Los Angeles , An Oil Well Is Dug , or some similar headache and at the same time vaguely try to recall whether Disgustavus Adolphus was a general in the Civil War or a seaport in Switzerland. Yes, every cloud has a silver lining: so, the A9's will please join in the chorus, Happy Days Are Here Again'. -c THE DRAMA CLASS As the culmination of many weeks of hard -work, study, and practice, the drama class under the direction of Miss Constance Campbell presented on the afternoon of December 4 the delightful comedy, The Knave of Hearts . In this play the entire class participated, the leading parts were played by James Allan who represented the king, Elizabeth Wagner the queen, and Leo Lava- telli in the title role of the knave himself. The class has tried to realize certain objectives in all the Work of the term. These have been as follows: to develope clear speech, to present pantomines in order to fit the action to the words in plays, to tell stories for the purpose of giving ease and informality to the individual, to present plays and pro- grams in order to give self-confidence to the actors.

Christmas carols were sung for invalids and old people who wished to hear them on Christmas Eve. A The highlight of the semester for the club was the operetta, Miss Car- ruthers Returns , which was presented on the evening of December 4 and greeted with much enthusiasm by a crowded house. The club has been in existence for four years, starting with twenty- seven members and numbering today fifty girls in its membership. The first year the club was under the direction of Mrs. Kyes, but since then the work of directing this group has been done by Mrs. Lundgren. Many valued members will be lost to the club when the A9's'leave, and they will be greatly missed. The cooperation of the girls this year, as in former years, has been excellent, and they have given most willingly any service that has been re- quested, joying in the giving. : BOYS' GLEE CLUB President: Jack Marshall Vice-President: Danny Waldschmidt Secretary: Billy Howell When one compares the Burbank Boys' Glee Club of 1931 with the club as Hrst organized in '29, only then will he understand now greatly the mem- bership and spirit have increased in that length of time. While the club was yet in its infancy. it had only twenty-five members, whereas it now boasts a membership of fifty. With the increase in numbers there has come a corres- ponding growth in spirit. The programs in which the club has participated during the semester have been numerous. The most outstanding of the club's achievements was the operetta, Plantation Echoes, presented on Fathers' Night. This was an original production written by Boden Minier, one of the members of the club. A second event of the semester was the presentation of safety songs and Christmas carols at a session of the Teachers' Institute at Belmont High. The boys also furnished music for many other entertainments, one of which was the girls' operetta, December 4. The boys also sang at Frankun High School the night of December 10. J .

The outstanding work of the combined orchestras during this semester was Thanksgiving in Orchestralian, a musical extravaganza written and staged by Rodna Hildebrand, presented November 25. On this presentation the orchestras received some very high compliments from Mr. Louis Curtis, supervisor of music in the city schools, and from Mrs. Helen W. Pierce, assistant superintendent of schools. This program traced the history of music through the last two hundred years and attempted to show that music has changed with the life of the people. It began with the formal music of Bach and ended with the lively music of the present day. 11-'Z3G'CU HOME! BED! CASTOR-OIL! Sam-u-ell Samu--el! Sammy! So cried Miss Green. Each time she called, she reached a higher pitch and her face became a deeper hue ot' red. Mumbling to herself, Miss Green set off at a fast pace up the street. It was known throughout the town that Samuel Fitzroy Green was the greatest trial of his spinster aunt's life. Jiggers! whispered Red, here comes the old maid! At this the light in the clubhouse went out, and the place was left in utter darkness. Sam-u-ell shouted the exasperated woman. Where is that young rapscalion? If Iget my hands on him, I'll-How d'do, Reverend Cromwell-. Isn't ner voice a kick? giggled Sammy. Gee, I got a fever in my head. It's awful hot, stated Sam Lurkins. Fm gettin' the funniest feelin' in my stomach, groaned Pete Williams. I wonder what she'll say when she sees I'm sick, questioned Sammy, dubiouslyf' Iwonder if old tight-wad Wilkins found out about his apples yet. Ow-wwl. -my stummickl Here I am Aunt Kate. Oh-Oh-Obi! Reaching the clubhouse, Miss Green threw open the door and grabbed her nephew by the ear. Home, bed, and castor-oil for you, young man, she scolded as she sped along. In spite of his agony, Sammy was able to enjoy a good laugh as his aunt pronounced those venomous words-Home! Bed! Castor oil! Myrtle Brennan, A9 ignit- MY WORST FAULT My worst fault is getting nervous when reciting in front of a crowd. I lose control of my voice and shake till I think my teeth are going to fall out. I know I may not please every one in what I'm saying or doing. I try as hard as I can to keep my mind on what I am doing. I think that is my worst fault, and it also is just a habit that I have to overcome and leave behind. Robert Dunbar, B7 GIRLS' JUNIOR LEAGUE President: Minnie Rosenberg Vice-President: Vera M. Barnes Secretary-Treasurer: Virginia McFadden Adviser: Mrs. Claire Epler Sponsor: Mrs. Leila Stormzand The Girls' League of Burbank, an organization whose purpose is to help every girl in every way and promote friendliness among its members, is to- day a most important factor in the life of this school. Since its organization in 1927, the league has gone steadily forward, and the girls feel justly proud of it. The league includes every girl in the school. Each girl automatically becomes a member as soon as she enters the school and there participates actively in all its work. The work of the league this year, it is hoped, has been a little better and more far-reaching than that of previous years, for it is the league's desire that each semester may show real growth. Each girls' home room has selected for its chapter name the name of some woman distinguished for her high ideals and achievements. One of the things that has given joy to the Girls' League as a whole is the programs pre- sented each Wednesday by one of the girls home rooms, using as a theme an event in the woman for whom that chapter is named. The most imporant event of the semester was the bringing of joy to the hearts of others through the Christmas work. This included the sending of cards to the elderly ladies at the county farm and the distribution of Christ- mas boxes to needy families in this community in conjunction with the Boys' League. As in former years, gifts for the Orthopedic Hospital were prepared. These consisted of brightly-colored tray cloths and scrap books, all of which were made voluntarily by the girls. The Girls' League consists of one chapter president from each girls, home room and three ofiicers, the president, vice president, and secretary- treasurerg also, an advisor, Mrs. Epler, the girls vice principal, and a sponsor Mrs. Stormzand, from the faculty. Vera M. Barnes f CLOUDS I think the clouds are wonderful, They look like big. big animals, Who have escaped from the animal zoo Up in the big, blue sky. There was cats and dogs and elephants too, Who have excaped From the animal zoo. Pauline Spyrell, R8 OUR LIBRARY The students of Luther Burbank and the faculty have reason to be proud of the library, which is one of the most attractive in the city, The attractiveness is lightened by beautiful chandeliers for reading pur- poses. On the walls are many pictures, two of which were given to the library as graduation gifts. One, especially designed, isaSpanish picture, painted by Mr. Conejoe, a Mexican artist. The library is about as large as two class rooms put together with an adjoinning workroom in which Miss Bomgardner, the librarian, works. It seats easily sixty-six people. , '- There are about two 1housand and two hundred books in the library to date. There were between seven hundred and eight hundred books when the library opened four years ago. Many new and interesting books have just been received in the library. These are a few of them: Mad Anthony Wayne, by Boyd: Adventures in the African Jungle, by Akeley: Patchwork Plavs, bv Field: That Year at Lincoln High, by Gollombg A Great Rich Man, by Boas: Builders of Empire, by Darrow: Lad, a Dog, by Terhune: The Flaming Arrow, by Moon: Thistle Inn,by Adams: Jungle Portraits, by Akeley: J. T. J r. The Biography of an African Monkey, by Akely: With the Eagles, by Anderson: Adios, by The Bartletts: A Slave of Cataline, by Anderson: Little America, by Byrd: Great Ghost Stories, by French: His Excellency and Peter, by Harper: Puck of Rooks Hill, by Kip- ling: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, by Irving: and Katrinka, by Haskell. Most of the books are so well read that at the end of a term many are sent to the binders to be recovered. - G0f EXCHANGES The Burbank Genius Staff during the year has received exchanges from seventeen local schools, sixteen from within the state of California, but out- side of this city, and twenty-three from outside of the state. We congratulate these schools on their interesting papers. The students enjoy reading the stories and articles found there.

Era negro y se llamaba Boots. Sabia al gunas manas pero no le gustaba cuando las personas le tocaron. Su ocupacion favorita era dormir junto a la puerta. No le gustaba quedarse afuera durante la noche. Boots era muy escrupuloso acerca de lo que comiag solo queria comer carne y bizcochos, pero no los obtenia siempre. Le gustaba muchisimo cazar aves y muches veces trataba de entrar en las iaulas de las aves de nuestro vecino. Siempre que un saco de papel caia al suelo el entraba en el saco. Si queria entrar eu la casa, rascaba en la puerta. Pero mi pobre gato no vive. Un auto le ha muerto. E por Blanche Segar, A9 - MI HERMANO PEQUENO ' Tengoun hermano pequeno.

He has a long gray beard and the raggedest clothes Yet sometimes he sits all day and sews. Iknow not why he stays there in the wood When the outside world is so great and so good. Yet there are some folks, I guess it is known, That can't get along unless they're alone. But I'll leave the old hermit alone in the wood, And I'll stay outside in the world so good. Sam Wilson, A9 - M I THE PHANTOM SHIP The-night was dark and stormy, And the waves the silence crashed, When out of the mists a ship arose, Her sides by the Water lashed. Her phantom sails hung ghostly Like shrouds in the sullen breezeg She sailed on, on into the mists, On to the unknown seas! Mary Smith, B9 - G0?r- OUR RESTING PLACE I love the golden sun so bright: ' It seems to shine for all that's right. I love the hills so stately, grand, Reaching out to embrace the land. Thedesert, too, has charm for me, Its blistering heat, its mystery. I The great Pacific, calmest ocean, How it comforts with its rhythmic motion. So, though I roam the U.S.A., I'll come back home, I know, alway, To California, the 'Golden West',- God made it for a place of rest. - Rodna Hildebrand, B9 THE PHANTOM SHIP An old ship rolls out on the sea With big waves breaking on her leap She rolled in glory years ago, From the sunny South to the icy fioe. The phantom sailors on her ghostly decks, With misty canvas and powder peeks, And the big, high canvas a-swishing, For the tune of the waves, the decks a-washing Oh, never will I ever forget that trip, When we saw the ghostly Phantom Ship: And when my children are on my knee, I'll tell them about that trip to sea. Edgar Wiley, B8 - LORD OF THE ALLEY Old Tom is the lord of the alley: No others dispute this right, For they know he can always sally Forth ready to start a fight. Now he parades up and down the fence A-singin' with all his might. From a window an angry voice comes hence, Are you gonna' be yawlin' all night? A shoe comes whistling thru the airg Old Tom is stopping his rally, But as he slinks away to his lair, He knows he's still lord of the alley. Bob Harmon, A9 -:'l00 THE SAME The same wind blows now through the trees 'That blew o'er pirates of old. The same sun climbs up in the sky That shone on knights so bold. The same moon lends its lighting beams As shone so long ago. The earth still goes round and round- The same God keep it so. Margaret Key, A9 THE LEGEND OF MIRAGE VALLEY A dusty caravan rumbled along the wheel-worn trail. The heat was intolerable. It was reflected from a midday sun shining down from a clear sky. The unshod oxen moved slowly. Inside the wagon a man and his wife and two stalwart lads sat, sweltering with the heat. They were all that was left of six caravans which had broken away from the main party. Far to the south the snow-capped mountains could be seen. The water was gone, it had been gone for two days. None of the small band expected ever to reach its destin- ation. . Suddenly, the man shouted, Look! Other members of the party strained their weary eyes. A surge of hope rushed through the tired, careworn bod- ies. Water! Water! The little group pushed forward. The sun no longer seemed hot. The sands were dry no longer. The only thought was of the water towards which all eyes were turned. As suddenly as it had appeared, the water vanished. Hope was gone as quickly as it had come. The little party was doomed. The years rolled by: summer and winter left their effect upon the remains. More years passed by, and a pair of weary traveleres in a rickety Ford came chugging along the dusty road that lead across the dessert. They were both young, dusty, and travel worn. Canteens were hung from the sides of the car. The car stopped, and the men stepped out. There ought to be water here, somewhere, said one. Yep, replied the other. There had. . The men in the act of pulling 'out their picks, uncovered some bleached bones,presumably those of oxen. And as they dug down for the water, they came upon more bones, those of human beings. Later they came upon the rusted parts of an old wagon. When one of the men had dug to the depth of about four feet, he shouted, Here is water, closer than we thought. A while later on, as they were resting, they surveyed the bleached bones. It's queer, the digger said, how people can get so close to something and l'1Ot know it.', Kenneth Burnham, A9 ' czoeczz- EVENING IN THE DESERT Evening in the desert is a most delightful thingg It always seems so restful and so inspiring. Ilove the queer old Joshua trees, That like guardian angels stands - Around our camp, upon the mounds, And o'er the billowing sands. First, you hear the lonely coyotes, And then the birds of night. Evening on the desert is a world full ofdelight. Doris McMurray, A9 THE APPLE BLOSSOM Said one white daisy to another, This is most unusual, funny weather: Right beneath this apple tree A big white snowflake fell on me. The other daisy laughed and said, I think, if you would raise your head And look above us, you would know, The apple blossoms fall like snow. Shirley Matthews, B8 -I'-1'S.PQJ WHAT I THINK OF DEATH We do not know what death is. Each one has a different idea. But I think we all want to do what is right so that when death comes, we can go on living still better lives. I think the most beautiful account of what death is I read the other day after the great inventor, Thos. A. Edison, died. He was sitting in his chair and his face became so calm, his eyes shone so beautifully, and he said, It is beautiful over there. I love to think that is the way it is. My father is dead, and it is nice to think he is in just such a beautiful place waiting for us. Jacqueline Adams, B7 coE::- MEMORIES Your picture to me is a sweet memory, As I think of the day that we met-- When I sat on your knee 'neath the old apple tree: Those daysl shall never forget. Our love dreams are faded and gone. Your dear face I shall never more see: But I'll clasp to my heart, and I'll never part With that picture that seems dear to me. I long for those bygone 'days That we spent 'neath the old apple tree. Where the sun sent its long, golden rays Shining on you and on me. Those hours are gone now foreverg You've forgotten since we're far apartg Yet I hold your picture tightly And keep it close to my heart. Annabell Gilmer ilukes' Jim Allen: I supose you know you will have to make a map of your four- teen-mile hike, before you become a first class Scout. Bob Babbibge: Yes, that's what has me worried. I can't find a piece of paper fourteen miles long for my map. , Fond Mother: Yes, Vahe is studying French and Algebra. Say 'Good morning' to the lady in Algebra, Vahe. Mother: Ellis, how is it that you have lower marks in January than in December? Ellis Palmer: Oh, everything is marked down after the holidays. Lorraine: Where in the world did you get that horrible necktie? J erry: The laugh's on you. You gave it to me on my last birthday. John Pritchard was motoring alonga lonely road. Suddenly he came upon a girl in distress. She was standing beside a new two-seater. John pulled up. - ' Can I help you in any way? he said, gallantly. The girl smiled through her tears. It's this gas indicator, she said. You see, it's standing at the half-way mark, but for the life of me I can't remember if it means half full or half empty. ' In a Sunday School class recently the pupils were discussing what things were contributed to the world by plant life. 1- Teacher: What do flowers give us? Roberta: Hay fever. Norman Imler: I learned to play the violin when I was five years old. Mrs. Kyes: How old were you when you,forgot? . Victoria F. : Did you mail those two letters I gave you, Marian? Marion S.: Yes'm, at the post-office. But Inoticed that you'd put the two-cent stamp on the foreign letter and the five-cent stamp on the city one. Victoria F. Oh, dear, what a blunder! , Marion S. But I fixed it all right. I just changed the addresses on the envelopes. Jimmy giggled when the teacher read the story of a man who swam a river three times before breakfast. - You do not doubt that a trained swimmer could do that, do you? asked the teacher. No, Sir, replied Jimmy, butI wonder why he didn't make it four times, and get back to the side where his clothes were. Dear Teacher, wrote the indignant Mrs. Waneran, You must not whack my Nathan. He is a delicate child and isn't used to it. We never hit him at home exept in self-defence. M Qi 'BJ gfmnnsin 11. Q. Wi' Qi! W WfWM'f , MMM My ABUZMW Sai fag M, Q, M xi 2 .PV .
