I W-I-.. 1 : Ay Q., :- ' URTAIN going up shows the two reporters writing busily. First Reporter: I wish we could get some news. I hate this stuff. CBell ringsg second Reporter answers.D 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 dome ? 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 appointed. 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 7 El- SUSURR0 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 tie-up. 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 that. 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 flowers. 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 High? Second Raporter: No. I First Reporter: Well you know the Grove's objection to a 8 El- SUSURR0 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! 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 paper. 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 their papers.J Carolus Viridis, 'I0. 9 El- SUSURRO Ely: Tinker-Class :Hush EEE 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. 10 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. ll El- SUSURR0 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. Elizabeih j. Easton, 'lI. 12 . E!.!l!.!L!M!.?l!.QBM!l?!l EL SUSURRO HEQLEELESLEELE.?L!e!L!.?JI Class f'I'fistory 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 13 EL SUSURR0 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. Edith A.

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. IVIONT D El- SUSURR0 '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. su . - I A STORY WITHOUT WORDS PHo1-on.nAr-Hsu rnom 'rr-as 1-An. or uu.u:v's comm' ' CAST-QABOVE, HILBV, OLIVER, BEST.

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.

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, 23 l!.?L!.M!.!L!.!L!.?L!.?L!.?Jl EL SUSURR0 MEM!!!f!l!.?L!4!L!.M!.?4l School Notes EEE 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 Civil War. GGG 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. IIIIU. The Swimming Club have spent several pleasant evenings at the Del Monte Bath House, chaperoned by Miss Boulware. a a a We had Rev. Mr. Clifford with us one day this semester, tell- ing of his trip to Seattle to the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition. GKIKI 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. ll at a Quite an enjoyable gathering in honor of the Seniors met at the home of Miss White, our English teacher, on Friday evening, the 6th, The rooms were very prettily decorated in the class colors and everyone present voted Miss White a charming hostess. 24 El- SUSURR0 Spontaneous Spoutings Miss B.-Neil, what did you do for history today 'P N.

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.
