: Ay Q., :- '
URTAIN going up shows the two reporters
First Reporter: I wish we could get some
news. I hate this stuff. CBell ringsg second
Second Reporter: I-lello. Yes this is the
Herald office. Who is it? Burbeck! Why
man I haven't seen you for twenty years. Where
you been? China. What you doing there? Skyscapes. Paint
the sky do they? Well! Well! To first Reporter-take this down:
One thousand dollars a square yard. Wish I could get a job.
What'll you do next? Rome. Rome. What dome? St. Peter.
Well what. Oh yes I understand now. Bet you won't do as good
a job as you did on the High School building in 1910. You ought
to be thankful for your early training. Sorry your so busy. Good
bye. To first Reporter: Remember Burbeck and the '10 on the
First Reporter: I certainly do and didn't we get it hot though?
Glad it was in the fishing season. Five days ! Whee!
' Second Reporter: Burbeck's the classy kid when it comes to
painting the dome, but I ought to be famous, though, for I helped
paint that 'IO out. Oliver was something of a painter also, though
he didn't distinguish himself. A
First Reporter: Oh yes! I got a letter from him the other
day. He's been appointed Aerial Admiral of the United States Sky
Fleet and is off to Mars.
Second Reporter: Why Mars? Why not the Moon or the
Sun for that matter?
First Reporter: He wants to learn something about war so he
wont have to surrender so easily.
Second Reporter: Well if he doesn't like fighting why did he
take it up ?
First Reporter: Oh he's so flighty, he couIdn't well help being
Second Reporter: Speaking of fighting, I see Pugh is Middle
Weight Champion of the world.
' First Reporter: Yes I won fifty dollars on that fight. But
where's Ruth Kuhn? She and Pugh were much of the same mind
when it came to fighting. At least about pennants.
Second Reporter: She's dead.
First Reporter: What was the matter?
Second Reporter: Oh she was too good to live long.
First Reporter: I don't believe you.
Second Reporter: Honest. She went mad in course of the
search for Burbeck's pennant.
First Reporter: There were some big results gotten out of
that pennant business.
Second Reporter: Yes, has Lee died yet? He got knocked
out so easily that it's a wonder if he's still living.
First Reporter: Oh yes he decided to save doctors' bills by
becoming one himself. Knows all his ills, and is quite famous.
Second Reporter: Hilby got tied up worse than Lee in that
First Reporter: Well he's teaching Mathematics at the High
School now and is quite harmless.
Second Reporter: He hasn't sold his share in the Nason,
Hilby, Spoon Factory has he?
First Reporter: Nope. He wouldn't lose a good thing like
Second Reporter: Here's another good thing. You going?
CGives a handbill to the First Reporter.D
First Reporter reads: "Alvarado Opera Company!! First
Western Tour! See the Girl from japan, by Glady Davies, the
renowned playwright. Elizabethsky Ricksonoff! and Ferndoff De
Wittsky! Sopranos! ably accompanied by Madamoselles, De Witt-
sky, Loeber and Stallinsky. Hear also the violin solo by Madamo-
selle Schmeirburg! A treat in itself. One night only. May 24, l920."
Second Reporter: Hear! Hear! Hear! You going?
First Reporter: Sure. Remember "The Japanese Girl" and
Fern DeWitt's staring. There was some class to that.
Second Reporter: Yes. Didn't Miss Bulware make us work
on those 'paper flowers ?
First Reporter: Well, since Miss Bulware became a fellow of
the National Academy of Arts she wouldn't deign to make paper
Second Reporter: I wouldn't blame her. Those flowers
looked about as natural as our chances for a Union High School.
, First Reporter: Did you ever hear how we got the Union
Second Raporter: No. I
First Reporter: Well you know the Grove's objection to a
Union High School was that it would corrupt the morals of the
Pacific Grove School children-
Second Reporter: Yes.
First Reporter: lt was that way till Hilby got his position here.
Then he proved by a mathematical proposition that there were no
morals in the Pacific Grove school and consequently the school
children could not be corrupted. V That settled the question for good.
Second Reporter: Ha! Ha! Ha!
tCall. First Repolter answers.i
First Reporter: Hello. Yes this is the office of the Monterey
Evening Herald. Who is it? Edith McGowan! Well how are
you! How's settlement work ? Yes, we got the Union High, and
Kenneth Smith, the millionaire baby food manufacturer gave the
funds for the breakwater. They built a pier out from each side.
with a gate in the middle. The fishermen drive the fish inside,
shut the gate and catch at their leisure. They just had a drive and
about a dozen whales, several sharks, and salmon and sardine
galore are inside. Yes it is a fine scheme. What-yes, l'm glad
to know it. So Miss White is Dean of the English Department at
Vassar. Good bye.
Second Reporter: That breakwater scheme was a great stunt,
alright, and you say she said Miss White was at Vassar? Well!
First Reporter: Yes. Call. lt's your turn to answer.
Second Reporteri Hello. Yes. l'll be sure to do it.
First Reporter: Who was it?
Second Reporter: Only Elizabeth Easton. She wants us to
be sure to announce that she has just been elected Pilot of the Mil-
pitas Debating Society.
First Reporter: Ten cents please.
Second Reporter: That Pilot was rather expensive waste
C Crash from outside.5
First Reporter: There's that Celestial phone again.
Second Reporter: Yes. I wish our new receiver in the fourth
dimension would come. I want to connect with Gabriel.
First Reporter: That's been happening for the last three days.
What'll you bet but that it's Macintosh. lt's funny that they didn't
discover heaven was in the fourth dimension long ago.
tCalls for copy from outside and both reporters rush out with
Carolus Viridis, 'I0.
Ely: Tinker-Class :Hush
The mighty class of Seniors
By their honored " 'l0" they swore
That the honor of their noble class
Should suffer wrong no more
By their honored " 'l0" they swore it,
And named a trystring night,
And bade their numbers all come forth,
From south and east and west and north,
By palest candle light.
From east and west and south and north
They come both thick and fast,
And ropes and paint and brushes
Are gathered there at last.
Shame on the lazy Senior
Who lingers in his home,
When all this great assemblage
Have come to paint the dome.
But never sound of workman
Was heard in the school house still,
No tootstep sounds to tell their toes
What is the Senior's will.
Unwatched the artist now ascends,
The bravest of their men,
And on the dome ot our High School's home
He paints a blazing " '10."
But in our school next morning
Was trembling and dismay.
The Seniors all were "canned," we heard,
For three long days of play,
For from the school-yard play ground
And from the basket-court
We could spy there the mighty " 'l0,"
Proof of the Seniors' sport.
I wish, in all our High School,
There were no hearts so bold,
As those of the jolly juniors,
When this great news was told.
Forthwith they made a pennant
Of cheese-cloth red and white,
And from the flagstatf Tuesday
lt floated brave and bright.
El- SUSURR0 M!l!.?l!?L!g?L!?JU115311
Then out spoke Mr. Mclntosh,
Our principal is he,
"This great thing called 'class spirit'
l really like to see.
So what can we do better
Than have a rushing day,
And settle this class rivalry
ln the good, old-fashioned way ?"
So April twenty-second
Was wanted for the tight,
And many were the plots then layed
For deeds of wrong and right.
The Seniors planned and plotted
To raise their pennant high,
For now their " '10" they'd painted out
tThey had to do it, so without
A pennant they would die.l
And now the great day cometh, A
With its grand costume parade,
And all the other honors
Before Freshman glories fade.
For a baby in a go-cart,
Pushed by a mammy black,
Followed by three little maidens gay,
ls riding forth and back.
Next comes the race tri-legged,
And the Seniors make much din,
For Oliver, Hilby, Best and Lee
Are in the thing to wine
But down they tumble at the start,
And this five points, l ween,
Belong to Torre and Schweninger
' Of the class of big '13.
The six-legged race to Seniors falls,
Myron and William B.,
And the wheel-barrow race in spite of Greene
To George S. and William T.
ln the crab-race M. A. Oliver
ls victorious once again,
And Burbeck wins the sack event
For the class of 1910.
And now the girls' race comes along,
The distance is 25,
And the girls are standing ready
To prove that they're alive.
Edith for '10 does bravely,
But of junior fame I sing,
And Josephine Decarli now,
The swittest runner in school, I vow
ls cheered till echoes ring.
And now we watch the pennant race,
Two poles of equal height
Are carefully selected, one ,
To left and one to right.
Now Best is there for 1910,
For the underclassmen, Pugh,
One bears the Senior purple and good
The other 'the Sophomore blue.
A pistol crack, a mighty rush,
All breathless watch the climb,
To see which pole will bear a flag
ln the shortest space of time.
Each inch is hotly fought for,
' But Seniors are happy when
Best reaches the top a second ahead
With the flag of 1910.
The score is 20 to 203
The tie-up is at handy
And doggedly and ready to die
To place their pennant up on high
The valient Seniors stand. '
The nine brave under-classmen
Are there with warlike glee.
Their ropes with grins they all display,
They call to all to clear the way,
.For they will make short work, they say,
Of the Seniors two times three.
Now, at the given signal,
Forth all the fifteen leapg
The odds are almost two to one
The job is pretty steepg
But how can Seniors better die
Than facing fearful odds
For their beloved class honor
And ancient Senior Gods?
The junior boy does bravely
Tying up Seniors tall.
The Freshies and Sophs make gallant war,
lt seems that the '10 must fall.
But fish from Carmel river
Have made the Seniors strong,
And at last they are victorious
Though the fight is hard and long.
'Tis placed upon the flagstaft
For everyone to see,
The pennant of the Seniors,
As gay as gay can be.
And far above street, now,
ln everybody's ken
lt floats to tell of the victory
Of the class of 1910.

HAT is more beautiful than to climb a high
hgaxgj as' mountain and gaze far out on the scenes be-
yond. On a certain August day in the year 1906
:QEQ a crowd of eager-faced young people stood
ready to begin the ascent of such a mountain.
5 with them were able guides. Behind inthe
distance could be seen other crowds moving
towards its base. At varied distances up its
sides still other groups could be seen already started. Some of
those who composed the waiting throng had already traveled to-
gether over the plains behind them, some were strangers from
distant lands. As the head guide held out abook, the climbers
entered into it their names. A tall slender youth with light curling
hair and blue eyes in whose hand was a sketch book, put down his
name as Angelo Oliver. Another whose conscious dignity was
belied by ge merry twinkle in his eye, put down his as Edwin Hilby.
Now a manly, shock-headed little fellow, always ready for joke or
fun, writes "Ernest S, the Dutch kid of Carmel." Further down
the page, side by side, appear the names two laughing, happy girl
friends, Gladys D. and Edith M., and all these climbers seemed
joined by a common interest and joy born of expectation. So they
started on their ascent.
The path was intricate and bewildering, for they were unused
to the brambles. They gazed with admiration and wonder at those
further up, and crowded joyfully after each other up the glens, nor
heeded the words of wisdom called back by those above.
After awhile they emerged from the canyons and their dark
overhanging trees. A small group was just disappearing over the
ridge of the mountain. They sat down to rest together. Many had
been lost from their number in the wilderness below, but those who
were left found themselves fresher and stronger than ever. A new
will and resolve settled upon the group as they gazed at the dizzy
heights above. Down below was another group eager to start, just
as these had done so short a time before. They called back half
in welcome, half in pride, at their own accomplishments.
The journey went on. Now they climbed up terrible dizzy
heights, now they rested in sunny dales, now they traveled over
level plateaus. Some stopped in the sunshine of the dales and
would not go on, others saw more promising mountains to climb in
the distance. They caught up with another fearless climber in one
lovely valley, and they cried, "We are glad to welcome this Alfred
Lee to our midst, for we have watched his brave climbing above
us." In the first long climb one joined them from a distant moun-
tain, who proved a worthy comrade till the end. His cheerful
smile soon won him the title of "Smiley Best." At the next rest
on the hillside the rollicking Billy B. came to cheer them on their
way with continual talking and song. When they had nearly
reached the top, they met a small boy climbing along by himself.
When they asked him his name, he replied with a gesture that was
infinitely wise, that it was Carl Greene.
Often in the climb they caught at the helping hands of those
above them. Often, too, they turned back to encourage a tired
group behind them. Three times they saw a small group disap-
pear over the brow of the mountain. Three times they called back
a welcome to a group of new climbers. Their guides were able
and kind, and without their aid these climbers might never have
reached the top. But with their guides' unfailing encouragement,
chastisements, and inspiring words, at last they reached the summit,
seven faithful climbers, comrades over a sweet, rough way. They
stand breathless, each looking out over the plains beyond into a
glorious sunrise, each ready to set his foot upon his own path with
the same valiant spirit as of old. Half turning, they stretch out their
hands in a last motion of good-will and farewell to the climbers
below them, and they, too, disappear over the top.

'A NOTHER year has gone by, and again the Commencement
Number of El Sussuro is before you. As is customary, this
issue has been turned over to the Senior Class, as a soitbf souvenir
volume and record of their High School career. This number is
therefore dedicated to the Class of 1910. Their sojourn with us is
now over, and they are going out into the wide, wide world, but the
memory of their achievements will ever be with us. During their
four years of High School life, they have never failedlto do all in
their power for the good ofthe school and its enterprises. There
representatives have been the main-stay of our school in athletics,
and this year three out of the four athletic teams were led by mem-
bers of this class. This is a record of which any class may well be
proud, and a class which any school might be sorry to loose. So
here's 'to the "Class of 'lO!" May they do as well when school
days are over as they have done during them.
'GHIS year has been a very successful one for Monterey High.
Besides making a creditable showing in football and baseball,
we have both boys' and girls' basketball teams of which many a
school of twice our numbers might well be proud. Two numbers
of El Susurro have been issued, and some other work done in the
literary line. Best of all, perhaps, we have, by means of "The Jap-
anese Girl," cleared off all the debts of the school, and brought into
our treasury a neat sum with which to carry on our athletics.
'A ND now the year is over, and the staff lay down their work
with sighs of mingled relief and regret. We have tried hard
to make this year's "Susurros" measure up to the standard set in
former years, and hope that we have succeeded. We wish all good
luck to our successors, and hope to see "El Susurro" in the years
to come, a match for any High School paper in the State.
NOTE.-On account of lack of space, the Exchanges have been omitted,
but will be noted in the next issue.

When to-night we part at last,
From the Class of Nineteen-Ten,
Maybe never more to meet
Together on this earth again,
May some guardian angel watch,
Keeping us thru paths of life,
Shielding us from unseen foes,
Protecting us from cares and strife.
When our work of.life is o'er,
And we cease to toil and gain,
May the gods of fate decree,
That once more we meet againg
Meet and renew the many ties,
That our High School life has bound,
And the Class of Nineteen-Ten
In health and happiness abound.
Times to the Class of nineteen-Gen
Set adrift upon life's ocean,
May your little craft sail straight-
Through the billows rocky motion,
Safe into the Golden Gate.
Little craft, what bear you?
What will be your answer, then-
Answer proudly, answer loudly
'Tis the Class of Nineteen-Ten.
Set adrift upon life's ocean,
Who will be your Pilot there,
Who will guide your vessel's courses,
Through the wind, the rain, the air?
Class of Nineteen-Ten, you're drifting
With the ever-changing tide,
Simply drifting from the harbor
To the ocean, vast and wide.
On the mast-head floats your pennant,
With its Purple and its Gold-
Bringing memories of High School
ln the care-free days of old.
Yet through all the long, long joumey,
Waiteth silently afar,
In some rocky, coral cavern,
Spirit of the Harbor-Bar.
And when all the journey's ended,
And our ship is anchored-then
We shall know, and bless the Spirit
Ot the Class of Nineteen-Ten.
Gladys E. Davies, 'I0.
Miss Gladys Davies was the successful competitor in the farce
writing contest. Her farce, entitled "Our Foot Ball Boys," was
chosen by the judges because it was the one best suited to acting.
On behalf of the Senior Class of 1910, I have the honor and great
pleasure in presenting to Miss Gladys Davies this medal, which
has been awarded her.
I hope, Miss Davies, this medal will ever be a reminder of the
efficient literary work you did in our old Monterey High School.
Aufed W. Lee, '10.
On a rocky point, quite near the sea,
A lonely pine tree stands,
Tall, majestic, and stately.
'Ganist a background of water and land.
- its roots, in rock imbeded firm,
Will hold for many a year,
They are faithfully serving their term,
To the life of the old pine are dear.
Then, by the ocean breezes,
Which 'mong the breezes play,
They become gnarled and knotted,
And toward the inland sway.
lts lower branches all decayed
Are broken by wind and spray,
While those above are hung with moss,
Giving contrast in green and gray.
This tree resisted many a storm,
As we should resist temptation
And be in life never forlorn,
But strive for a firm foundation.

After the Christmas holidays the interest of the boys was cen-
tered on basket ball. Games were arranged with the Grammar
School, the Pacific Grove first and second High School teams,
and the Grove Academy. We lost the first game to the Grove sec-
ond team with a score of 29-20. The second game was forfeited to
us. The only other team which gave us a hard game was our
Grammar School, score 16-ll favor of us. Q
On account of the interest in basket ball, track work was ne-
glected, with the result that we only entered one candidate in the
meet, whose shoe came off shortly after he started the half mile,
thereforel! ! 11 at ? ?:! ! bang.
We have earnestly started base ball practice, and are working
hard to win back the trophy cup which we won in '08, and lost in
'09. The only league game played so far was lost to Santa Cruz,
8-ll. This was not to be wondered at, however, as our first and
second baseman and shortstop could not play the whole game. We
fully expect to win every game after this, as our team will be com-
pletely organized. a G G
Girls' Basket Ball
This year we girls have gone in good and hard for basket ball,
and with the good coaching of Miss Boulware have risen to a point
where we can make a good showing. '
Our first outside game was with the San Carlos team. We
played on their court to our disadvantage, for it was smaller than
ours and their baskets had been put up, upside down. The score
was 21-23 in their favor. We do not feel that this score shows the
relative merits of the two teams, but we have never been able to
get a return game in which to show what our team can do. '
On March 25th the Pacific Grove team played us a practice
game on our court. The score was 2-10 in our favor.
We are at present playing a set of five games for a pennant of-
fered by Phegley-Hutchinson to the winning team. We have played
three, at the time of going to press. The Grove has won two, and
our team one, but our girls are working hard to get that pennant.
The Monterey Grammar School team have been quite an aid to
us in furnishing us with excellent practice games. The line-up is
as follows: Josephine Morgan Ccenterb, Rachel Moore, Enid Best
tguardsl, Josephine DeCarli, Arma Loeber Cforwardb, Elizabeth
Easton, Lucy Harmon, Fern DeWitt Csubsb,

Lincoln's birthday was celebrated by a short program in the
Study Hall, consisting of music by the school orchestrag vocal solo,
Ferne DeWittg and an instrumental solo by Rachel Moore. Some
current events were then discussed, Alfred Lee taking "Coal Min-
ing" and Edwin Hilby the "Panama Canal." Some members of
the G. A. R., among them Dr. Abbott, were present and gave us
some interesting reminiscences of their experiences during the
One evening in April, a merry crowd of young people, chaper-
oned by Miss Bonlware, enjoyed a moonlight picnic on the Del
Monte Beach. After doing justice to a delicious lunch, stories were
told, and at an early hour all departed.
The Swimming Club have spent several pleasant evenings at
the Del Monte Bath House, chaperoned by Miss Boulware.

We had Rev. Mr. Clifford with us one day this semester, tell-
ing of his trip to Seattle to the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition.
just after we received the new pictures, and before they had
been placed in the several class-rooms, a program was given in
honor of their arrival. The entire set were hung in the Study Hall,
and Miss Boulware gave a brief explanation of each one. Mr.
Adams, a local artist, favored us with an interesting discourse on
"Ar-t." Ferne DeWitt gave .a vocal solo and the school orchestra
played several selections. Several songs were sung by the school,
and Mr. Mclntosh made a few well-chosen remarks.

How peaceful were our days before
We played at basket ball,
What lots of time we had to talk
And stand around the hallg
Oh! what an easy time we had
E'er we played basket ball.
We always used to have some peace,
To rough-house we'd ne'er yield,
We never shirked, we always worked,
Our pencils we did wield,
But now we have the greatest larks
Out on the basket ball field.
j. DeCarli is the worst
Of all the there is no doubt,
She raises all the rough-house
Except when Enid's out,
And then you can't tell which is worse
They are a pair, about.
But they have no monopoly
On this queer line of work
For Rachel, as our captain.
Has sure no right to shirkg
So she adds to the din her laughter
For she likes play as well as work.
j. Morgan, Ferne, and Arma prim
Are naughty Freshies three,
They are in lots of mischief
As any one can seeg
But some say a junior beats them
And her name is E. j. E.
And then when work is over
To the house we all retire
And Rachel and Enid try their skill
At quenching their inward fire
By cups and cups of water
Of which they never tire.
Miss Boulware tries to make us work,
She is our coach so tall,
She lays down the law 'most every day
To the players great and small,
But it's no use, we must rough-house
When we play basket ball.
Miss W.-David Starr jordan is cut-
ting down the number of girls.

The josh Editor leads an easy lite,
just sits and laughs all day:
The jokes come rolling in in stack
And she can laugh and play
And write pages of stuff to make one
Most any time of day.
The josh Editor must fume and fuss
And work like a Turk all day.
For jokes are awful hard to get,
She has more work than play,
For 'tisn't as much fun as it looks
To scribble and scribble all day.
