:: Sue .lane's Romance ::
W we-ang UE .JANE Hung herself down into the dusty seat on the old
If my tram and turned disconsolately toward the window.
l Q "I hope you're satisfied," she said, half sobbing, "now
X, W S I'm going home."
. :D "I'm sorry, Sue jane," I answered.
"You ought to be," she threw over her shoulder. "You
spoiled my whole vacation."
"Yes, you!" She turned to me accusingly. "Didn't you hide him
in the cave? Didn't you take him sandwiches twice a day ?"
"ll couldn't let him starve, could I? And who was it," I ended tri-
umphantly, "who was it that made the sandwiches F"
Sue jane did not answer. She was weeping.
"Good-bye,', I said, for the train had started.
"Good-bye," she answered, dabbing her cheeks with her handker-
chief. "You won't see me any more, David. I don't think I'll ever
She ended with a sob and buried her face in her hands. That was
my last glimpse of her. .Poor Sue Jane! She had had her romance early
in life, and the long bleak years stretching far ahead looked dark indeed.
lfrom the same dusty car, just a week before, had stepped Sue jane,
all eager to taste the open life of a California ranch. It was a proud boy
who had met her at the station and driven her through the little town,
pointing out the things of interest on the way. This was the house
people said was haunted-lights were seen in it on stormy nights, this
was the creek where, last week, Cousin Sally's cat had been drownedg
and this-this was the one sight the town boasted. This was the reform
school! Sue jane sat in rapt attention while I told of the school, its fire
brigade, its swimming tank, its carpenter shop, where fifty of the boys
worked, and of the big bell up in the tower which rang whenever there
was an escape.
"l don't blame them for running away," said Sue Jane. "I wouldnlt
stay long in a place like that."
"And il' you were caught, Sue jane," said I, "you would be put in a
lonr-by-four room for a month and have bread and water at breakfast,
dinner and supper."
"'l'hat's awful," said Sue jane. "Do they do that ?"
YVe reached the ranch at dusk where at the door of the old house
were waiting grandmother and grandfather. That evening when Sue
.lane opened her trunk, the first thing she brought to light was a scarlet
and gold book, the kind which was wholly unfamiliar to us. It was
called 'The Fugitive Lover," and was, according to Sue jane, "Bobbs
Merrill's latest best seller." just six nights later grandmother without
any ceremony, poked the same book into the glowing coals in the big
stove. But it didn't do any good then. It was too late. Everything had
happened and Sue .lane was packing her trunk for -home.
For the first two days Sue jane roamed over the ranch, inspecting
objects of interest. The third morning he came. WVe were sitting on
the bank of the little river where it had paused a moment in its Bight
6 GUARD AND TACKLE
to the sea, Sue Jane beneath an old pine and utterly lost in the pages of
"The Fugitive Lover," myself trying to hook a sleepy turtle from under
a rock. Suddenly, there was a rattle and crackle in the thick under-
brush and out rushed a figure, disheveled and dusty. The intruder
stopped short at sight of a girl and boy staring at him in amazement.
I-Ie glanced around, frightened, and then rushing to the river bank threw
himself down and plunged his face into the cool water.
Sue Jane had dropped her book and had come over to me. "Who
is he?" she whispered.
"I-Iow should I know FU I snapped, for I had seen my turtle glide
away from the shadowy bank.
The figure by the waterls edge suddenly straightened himself and
turned to us. I-Ie was a young man, certainly not yet twenty. ' His face
was scratched and his clothing torn as if he had been running through
the Chaparral. Nevertheless, he appeared, as Sue jane later confided
to me, her "ideal type of manly beauty."
"Is there a house near here ?" he asked. I thought he was going to
add "kids," but he didn't-luckily for him.
"I-Ialf a mile up the ravine," said I.
I-Ie glancedaround again, speaking quickly, "I'm in a terrible fix.
I'm going to throw myself on your mercy. VVill you help?"
"Sure," said I with alacrity.
"VVe will be pleased to," added Sue jane.
"I was hunting on Echo Mountain with some friends," he con-
tinued, "and got lost. Haven't had a bite to eat all day. Couldn't you
get me something?"
"Grandmother will be glad to entertain you," said Sue jane. "Come
up to the house."
"No, I'd better not," he objected. "Too tired. lfVant some sleep.
I'll wait here."
Both Sue jane and I could see he was in need of rest. "Let him go
in the cave," I whispered.
"If you won't go to grandmother's, then enter my house," she said,
leading the way to a big willow. I-Iere she pulled back the shrubbery.
"Behold!" she cried dramatically. "Ali Baba's secret cave, known
only to the favored few."
"And may I go in, Miss Ali Baba?"
"You may enter, sir. You are now one of the band."
Sue Jane held back the willow branches while he entered. It was
a small cave in the bluff which ran down to the river bank. I had dis-
covered it months before and had told no one, thinking it a great secret.
Sue Jane had, upon my revealing it to her, taken possession of the cave
in the name of Alladin, Ali Baba, and I-Iarun El-Raschid. Now the
stranger who had so suddenly come upon the scene, entered and threw
himself down on the mossy carpet.
"You can sleep here in peace," said I. "No one knows about this
place but we three. Sue jane and I will go and get you something
"All right," said he gratefully. "But if I were you, I shouldn't say
anything about me. We'll keep it a secret. I'll be one of Ali Baba's
Then we two left him.
"There is something mysterious about him," said Sue jane on our
way home, "and I simply adore mysteries?
We reached home where Sue .lane silently vanished into the pantry,
to reappear later with a small package which she thrust into my hands.
GUARD AND TACKLE 7
"Sandwiches," she whispered, "and fudge! Tell him I made them
I sneaked out the side door, leaving her standing on the steps.
'l'hrough the ravine and down to the river I hurried, knowing the sand-
wiches would bring a hearty welcome. But he was sound asleep,
stretched full length on the floor of the cave. I put Sue Iane's package
of sandwiches and 'fudge on the ground beside him and departed.
That night at supper grandfather unwittingly threw a bomb into
our midst. "The children should be kept near the house for a few
days," he said. "One of the worst boys at the school has escaped.
David, what are you choking over P'
"The fish is so full of bones," excused grandmother.
As soon as supper was over, Sue .lane and I sneaked away to the
"Wl1at are you going to do," I whispered.
"DOP" said Sue Jane. "VVhy, nothing."
"Aren't you going to feed him any more ?" I persisted. '
"Of course, silly! But we have got to be more careful. We must
not let anyone suspect. Hush! You can hear the bell l"
And as we listened there in the twilight, floating up from the valley
came the distant sound of the bell, telling the whole countryside to be on
the lookout for an escape from the school. And we two solemnly swore
a bond of secrecy, defying every ofhcer in the county to find the fugitive,
who was securely hidden in Aladdin's magic cave.
"Sue Jane," I said, breaking the silence, "did you know that grand-
father was sheriff?"
"I-Ieavens!" she cried. "I didn't know that!"
But it didn't alter our plans. Dawn the next morning found me on
my way to the cave, carrying a package of food and a dainty little
scented letter from Sue plane to the cave man. Wlieii I arrived, he was
already awake and as hungry as a bear.
"I was wondering if you'd forgotten me." he said. "VVhat's this?"
"That's a letter from Sue -Iane. I think she wants an answer."
Sue jane was waiting for me when I got back. "Did bel" she
I handed her the note. IIer face lighted up with sudden joy and
immediately she fiew to her room and closed the door. For the next
three days I carried back and forth similar letters twice, and sometimes
three times, a day. VVC were busy making plans for the escape of the
fugitive, when the officers had finished scouring the valley and things
had quietcd down. He was to Hy on Ql'IlI1fll-2l'CllCI',S Heetest steed fwhich
was lame and blind in one eyej, and escape to another land and begin
life anew. Sue -lane never told me so, but I think he was to return later
for her. Thus we lived in a continual state of excitement. I wonder
now if grandfather and grandmother did not both suspect something
from our mysterious signs and beckonings.
It happened the third night. I had taken the sandwiches and Sue
,lane's note as usual and started for the ravine. Suddenly grandfather
appeared at the back door.
"VVhere are you going?" he asked.
I stopped in dismay. Vlfild excuses Hitted through my brain, but all
appeared hopeless. Then I looked up. There in the doorway behind
grandfather stood Sue lane, her eyes imploring, her hands making
mystic characters. Suddenly I received all lllspiration-01' rather, what
to me appeared to be an inspiration,
8 GUARD AND TACKLE
I slowly unwrapped the package. "I've got some old bread and
meat for the dog," I answered.
Under grandfather's piercing eye I somehow managed to whistle for
Shep. Around the corner of the house he came bounding. I-Ie barked
eagerly and sat up waiting. Into his open mouth I dropped one by one,
Sue -Iane's chicken sandwiches.
There was a rush from the doorway and before me stood Sue Jane,
her little hands clenched, her eyes blazing. '
"David!" she cried. "How could you! I-Iow could you !"
Then she broke down, crying. Grandfather came slowly over to
us, and silently stood looking down accusingly.
"Children," he said at last and his voice was stern, "what does this
We told. Both of us stammered out parts of the story and he
pieced it together. When we had finished, he left us without a word
and entered the house. I-Ie was slipping his pistol into his belt when he
"Where are you going, grandfather?" cried Sue Jane.
"To get him," he answered. He walked straight to the ravine and
was soon lost to sight.
"Oh, David," sobbed Sue jane. "I-Ie will be killed I"
"Grandfather! We must save him. Hurry 1"
Sue jane started off at a run. I followed. We plunged down the
ravine, bounding over stones and brush, around the bends, and down
to the river. There we caught up with grandfather.
Sue .Iane's cave man was sleeping on the banks of the stream. In
the open! VVhen we had told him he must be careful! Grandfather
Walked up and stood above him.
"Get up!" he commanded.
The figure stirred and stretched himself sleepily. Slowly he arose.
"David," said Sue jane in a frightened whisper, "what shall we do ?"
"Nothing," I answered.
The cave man was staring at grandfather somewhat insolently.
Grandfather never said a word, but turned back the lapel of his coat,
showing his sheriff's badge. The look of insolence suddenly vanished
from the face of the fugitive. In its place shone amazement, fright,
dismay. It was like the transforination scene from "Dix Jekyll and Mr.
Hyde." One moment he was arrogant and disdainful, the next, cower-
ing and sheepish. Grandfather calmly slipped a pair of handcuffs on his
prisoner and slowly led him away. Not once did our cave man look at
usg his eyes were fastened on the ground. - I wonder which of us three
felt most ashamed, he, Sue jane, or myself.
Poor Sue jane! She had erected a marble altar before which she
worshipped, and, suddenly, before her very eyes, it had been smashed
to a thousand pieces. It had proved to be common clay, after all. No
wonder she packed her trunk that night and left for home the next day.
But her last letter was rather cheerful. "Since I've met Jack," she
wrote, "I have forgotten about our cave man. Try to forget him, too.
But David, it was tragic, wasn't it ?"
Yes, Sue jane, it was.

ND now the fourth milestone in our high school race has been
passed. Vxfe have competed with dullness, discouragement, hope-
lessness, incompetence and laziness, and most of us have won our
race. MVC had a Flying start. The elevated satisfaction of being a high
school student served as a goad to victory whene'er disagreeable factors
entered in and tried to secure the inside lane.
lint most of us have not run the race as wellas we might. We
panted a little on the second lap and we slowed down just a trifle in the
third-we speak of the race in general-and the fourth lap was a hard,
hard light from the beginning to the end. But the reward was just
ahead, and though the lane was a rough one with many turns and of
different grades, we all ran hard, knowing that the Diploma of Compe-
tence awaited the winners.
Now that it's over, isn't there a feeling that you have really accom-
plished something. and that the race has not been run, merely to see who
could last out, and who could not? Don't you feel that it has paved the
way for you, that it has put you in training for a harder race, the race of
the business of life? lf you do, a great deal has been done. The high
school has not been a mere mechanical routine, but has served as a
hnilder for the foundation that will support you in the years to come-
if you do your share towards holding yourself up.
E would fain dwell at length on the new courses, but space forbids.
Let us gaze, however, at the special arrangement that has been
made in the commercial department for those graduates who would
like to take up stenography, typing or bookkeeping, or in fact, any com-A
mercial subject and finish in as short a time as his ability may permit.
The principal or the head of the commercial department can give those
who are interested in this new course all necessary details, and supplies
any information about the courses that may he needed.
Another change is to be made in the English department in the form
of introducing public speaking and an extended study of dramatic liter-
ature. Short speeches will be given in the different English classes, and
a slight study of parliamentary law made. Orations, addresses, presenta-
tion and nomination speeches and debate will be taken in turn. .In

the Senior and junior .linglisli classes a course is offered in the drama,
and dramatic readings will be given. XfVhether this part of the COl.11'SC
will be included in a somewhat modified form in the lower classes has
not been fully decided yet.
Coincident with the fact that the "Guard and Tackle" represents
this year the largest amount of advertising that has ever been inserted
in one copy of a single issue, comes a plea for a greater support, The
support we give the merchants is, indeed, vast. Practically S5000 a
month is spent by the students of the high school. This money goes to
the men who advertise with us, and some of it to those who don't. And
right here is where we ask your support. Don't spend any of it with the
man who doesn't advertise in the "Guard and Tackle." There is one
place in Stockton that is absolutely supported by high school pupils, and
without their help the proprietor would have to go out of business. We
regard this as signilicant evidence of the power that lies behind the
spending money of the school boys and girls.

Dear Merle: I-Iigh school is a wonderful place? I love it! But, oh!
what a lot of hard work the teachers pile onto us, and what a crowd of
pupils there are here! It's all so interesting and strange, but Uncle
john warned me against gazing at the pictures on the wall, because
then everyone would know I was a Freshman. There are some awfully
mean girls and boys they call juniors. lfVe Wanted to know Where the
ollice was, and they told us to ring the bell under the clock and then
in live minutes, if Mr. VVilliams didn't appear, to go up the last stairs
and knock at the third door. XfVe found the olifice was nearer at hand
and in less than the stated time, too.
Isn't an election the most exciting thing! Ours turned out fine, with
Clay Swango as presidentg Russell Payne, vice president, Reeve Yost,
secretary and treasurer: Bob Blossom, student body representative, and
Genevieve Tully and Elwood Long, student control committee. You
remember them, don't you? just a week ago Clay Swango left school
and Bob Blossom lost his honored position, so we have elected Russell
Payne and Bill Dunne to fill their places.
The school is all enthusiasm over the track meet which is to take
place this afternoon. 'We're going to turn out in a bunch and root for
our Freshmen boys. 'lfhey won big "S" for baseball, and I'm sure we'll
win the meet, too. I must close and cram lor a Latin ex. and study my

Dear Merle: This is certainly an uneventful term in the way of
class doings, although We are getting wise in order to make a brilliant
showing the third and fourth years. Several new members have been
added to our number, but still more have dropped by the wayside. Mr.
Garrison is now principal and our school is in line for many modern
improvements. One of the innovations is that precious article called
"the mid-year class." Really when those infants toddle across the halls
I wonder if we were ever such helpless little creatures. They are pitiable
little objects indeed. One poor little child has an ink-stained stubble Held
covering his scanty brains as a token of Sophomore love.
I didn't go to the class election, but from all appearances Carroll
Grunsky is presidentg Germaine Stewart, vice, and Russell Payne, secre-
tary and treasurer. Wlill write more next time.

The Executive Committee
HE executive committee of the Associated Students is composed
of the president, vice president, secretary-treasurer and custodian
elected by the student body at large, the auditor, appointed from
the faculty by the principal, and one representative from each class. To
these nine people are entrusted all student activities. Upon them rests
the responsibility of handling student funds, of transacting the business
of the student body in such a way as to bring most credit to Stockton
All is not plain sailing, for with the large expense connected with
athletics it is very necessary to make each dollar count. It is sometimes
rather hard to convince a football manager that the baseball team is
entitled to as much consideration as the particular team that he repre-
sents. This year such difliculties have been smoothed over very satis-
In the matter ol granting the Black S to members of the winning
teams, the executive committee must exercise considerable discretion.
The committee this year has very wisely set the stanrilard ol the S on a
high plane. It should be considered an honor to be able to wear a letter,
but if the winning of the S were too easy all honor would be stripped
from the symbol.
The several members of the committee this year have done excellent
work. President Grunsky has put all his energy into the Work but has
been handicapped by illness. During his absence his place was most
efficiently filled by Dorothy VVoodruff, vice president. Cyrus l:lQickin-
botham, secretary-treasurer, has been on the alert all the time, but it
has been rather a hard matter to convince him that it was necessary to
spend money. However, through Cy's reluctance to spend money fool-
ishly, the committee has been able to provide all necessary material for
the teams. Mr. Ellis, faculty representative of the committee, helped
keep expenses down, and assisted monumentally in the execution ol all
duties oi the members toward the entire school. To him the committee
believe they owe a great deal, as he steered them through the rocky shoals
with the hands of a skilled pilot. The custodian, Harold Vogelsang, has
been the first to take his task seriously. As a result the material ol the
various teams is accounted for and will be used by the teams next year.
The several class representatives, Clarence Buthenuth, Harold Gravem,
Rex Parker and jack Raggio, have given their earnest assistance to the
officers of the Associated Students.
The executive committee, as well as the athletic teams, may bring
credit or discredit upon Stockton High School. The members must take
their duties seriously and the attempt should be made by the students
to pick the strongest men possible. The committee must select the
managers for the various teams, a position whose importance is second
to none on the team, not even excepting the captain.
The students at large should feel that the committee is their instru-
ment for doing the work of the school. Support should be vvhole-hearted
when the committee is making an honest effort, condemnation should be
sharp, if the committee shirks. The committee should reflect the atti-
tude of the student body at large.

The Student Control Committee O 9
545599 HE Student Control Committee has been called upon only
jj f twice this year to give judgment in student body cases.
There seems to have been some misunderstanding
among the pupils as to the reason for this seeming laxity.
It might be well to state in defense of any unjust criticism
that out of ofences that numbered less than ten the ma-
jority were very successfully handled by the oflicc, and it was not found
necessary to go through the inevitable "red tapel' that always confronts
a student upon having to face the student control committee.
Carroll Grunsky very efliciently presided over the few meetings that
were held. Other members of the student control committee for the
year 1913-1914 were Dorothy WVoodrulif, vice presidentg Ruth Eccleston
and Howard Pease, representatives of the Senior classg june Young and
Buteau Lundy from the junior classg Ila 'lfretheway and Wallztce
Hewitt from the Sophomore class, and Alice Doolittle and Edison l-lolt
from that of the Freshmen.
Under the new amendment to the constitution of the school which
provides that the president of the student body appoint four boys at
large and that the vice president appoint four girls at large, it is expected
that a 100 per cent efficient student control committee will be developed.

The Year's Debating Activities 9 9
ERI-IAPS no other school activity has had such unbounded success
this year as has debating. When the present set of officers entered
upon their duties last September, debating was a dead issue. But we
had gone into ohice with a determination to do, to bring the Stockton
High School Debating Society up to the highest level possible, and to
arouse a new and unlimited interest in debating. How well we have
succeeded must be left with you to decide.
The first step taken was to increase the membership in the Society.
After this step had been carried to a most successful termination, sched-
ules of debates were arranged. These were posted in conspicuous places
so that the contestants would have ample time to prepare themselves.
Then every two weeks, of a quality unheard of before in the history of
the S. H. S., debates were held. The attendance increased at each debate,
showing that the students had at last awakened to the unlimited pos-
sibilities in debating work and were evidencing a keen interest in the
same. Students voluntarily petitioned for membership. The climax
came, however, at our first mock debate, when we had the unheard of
attendance of between 350 and 400 pupils and others. We were forced
to vacate our regular room and adjourn to the large study hall.
Besides these splendid debates, excellent addresses were given the
students under the auspices of the Debating Society, on subjects kindred
to debating. The speakers included a prominent local attorney, a mem-
ber of the State Legislature, a prominent editor and an extensive
The crowning event in this year's debating circles, however, was the
admittance of our Society into the Debating League of California. Truly,
this breaks the chains that have bound us down to a local existence, and
opens to us a field previously unknown, one unlimited in its possibilities.
A full account of this triumph appears elsewhere in this issue. Read it!
Before concluding this article, I wish to thank on behalf of the So-
ciety, and personally, those instructors who have given their time and
energy toward a bigger and better Debating Society. Much of our suc-
cess is due to their untiring efforts.
To all students of the school I wish to say: If you are awake to
your best opportunities and interests, join and take an active part in the
S. H. S. D. S., The chance is being given you to gain an accomplish-
ment which can be gained in no other way and at no other time. "Do
not put off until tomorrow that which may be done today."
The newly elected officers for the year 1914-15 are Harry Mazzara,
president, Josephine VV'illiams, vice president, Scott Hyde, secretary-
treasurer and Milton Kingsbury, sergeant-at-arms. Give them your sup-
port. And now to these officers we can only say:

S I have said elsewhere, our young "renaissance" of this year was a
most fruitful one. VVe attained great heights in everything from
football to debating, but the crowning achievement is the band. I,
myself, have been faithful to S, I-I. S. for some four years-and then some
-but never before this year have I seen the students go into such ecsta-
sies over anything as they have over the band. There is no organization
in the school at present so popular with the student body and surely none
more worthy of praise.
Like most great things, it grew very slowly. It started up once,
then flattened out, then started again, struggled along, rooted itself into
the minds of the students, until it finally blossomed out to amazing size,
and now commands the attention and interest of every student. Most of
us like music and I am of the opinion that in the composition of a person
who is absolutely devoid of any taste for music, there must have been
some fearful mistake. There is not a doubt in the world that from now
on and forever S. I-I. S. will have a band. There no escape. The stu-
dents have had a taste of it, and their mouths water for more.
By way of tribute I want to say that if Westlnay, '15, never did an-
other thing, he made himself eligible for the honor roll of S. I-I. S. by first
formulating, and more than that, by first undertaking the work of organ-
izing the band.
Equal honors will be shared with Kirknian, '14, and Sanderson, '15,
These tvvo boys kept the band under their wing, conducted practice and
kept up the organization in general. The student body furnished the
spirit for which we are justly proud. We are certain that the band has
received a hearty support and that it will continue to receive it. More-
over, it has through concerts during advisory periods, proved itself a
lucrative asset to the student body and it now has a snug little treasury
of its own.
Psalm of Life---Revised 0000000000000-
Say not to me in accents true,
Every girl can catch a beau,
For there's many who canlt get 'cm,
Though they hunt 'em high and low.
Real is the search, you bet, and earnest.
Matrimony is the prize.
Yet therels many who can't get there,
Though they're speedy, class-and wise.
IfVives of men are all around us,
Ive could also look sublime,
If we only had a husband
Wfho would dress us up real line.
Husbands, who when walking by us,
Along the busy street,
Make us envied by all others
NWho must needs their search repeat.
In this world's grim field of battle
In its jealousy and strife,
By choice no one lives lonesome
In the single blessedness of life.
XVe must all be up and doing,
Looking, watching for a man,
And if one gets too near us,
Catch and rope him if We Can.

0 o 9
The football team of '13-'14 was a very successful one. Centerville
beat us the first game 6 to 5, but that was with several men of no experi-
ence. Then we had no coaching, as Mr. Toms is not experienced in
Rugby. There was no coaching this year except the principal points of
the game, which Whitney and Blossom taught the new men.
You probably noticed what happened to Fresno's gladiators when
they journeyed up here to tangle with us. They played one of the
cleanest games that ever took place on our campus, but though they got
the first score they failed to convert. Towards the end of the game we
got the famous Stockton fighting spirit in our systems, and after a
beautiful passing rush, VVaite received the ball and carried it over.
NVhitney converted, the final whistle blew, a11d they found us on the
long end of the score, which stood S. H. S. 5, F. H. S. 3.
Then we journeyed down to Oakland and played Fremont High,
which is the champion of the bay schools. This was a very hard game,
but our men, showing the experience they had received, managed to hold
their own very nicely. Fremont made a grand attempt to score during
the first half but failed. In the second half we went back as "fresh as
daisiesf' but, though we kept the ball near their line, we could not score.
The final score stood O to O after a hard game. After hearing of this
result Sacramento cancelled two games with us that they were very
anxious to play before.
We next played in Fresno after a long tiresome ride, and the fellows
played in fine style showing much improvement under the coaching of
George Ditz. We had little trouble beating them by a score of 5 to 3,
McKenzie making the score. during a scrum rush, and NVhitney con-
VVe also had a grand mix-up with the Alumni, but they bestcd us
due to some men such as Gianelli, Lyons and Single.
This iyear's team consisted of Miller, Leffier, Henshaw, front rank:
C. Hickenbotham, lock, Wfilson, Otto, side rankg Lauxen, I. Dennis, V.
Dennis, rear rankg Blossom, manager and wing forwardg Westbay,
half, VVhitney captain and Hrst five, Alley, second five, Raggio and L.
Hickinbotham, three-quarters, XfVaite. McKenzie, and Grunsky, who
took sick after the first game, wings, Hyde, fullback.
We, who graduate, are sorry to think our high school football days
are over, and will expect you fellows to keep up the standard that has
been set. I-Iere's wishing you success!

S. H. S. 233 Lodi 22.
The hrst A. A. L. basket ball game was played December 12th with
Lodi on the Lodi court. lt was a real, live game, as the score indicates,
the difference never varying more than two points at any one time. Real
spirit was shown in the attendance of the game.
S. H. S. 43g Modesto 10.
The first game with Modesto was played on the 19th of December
at the S. A. A. Modesto lost their center early in the game and through-
out played in hard luck. The game would have been more interesting
had the lighting forces' been more evenly balanced.
S. H. S. 295 Modesto 41.
Then the team wandered to Modesto, january 16th, where they were
confronted with fearful odds. The court was small, the roof was low,
the baskets had holes in them and the team was almost void of home
support. The result was as the score has already told you, defeat.
S. H. S. 279 Lodi 19.
Before playing the second game with Lodi a big rally was held.
lts results were inevitable. A big live spirited crowd, inspired by the
band and roused by the bellows of the rooting section turned out on
january 24th to one of the finest games ever played on the local court.
Lee lrlickinbotham starred with his usual grandstand plays. The result
barred the grape-pickers from the S. sl. A. A. I-. championship.
S. H. S. 33g Oakdale 10.
The next game was played February lOth with Oakdale, on the
local court. The same spirit which had piloted the team to victory in
their joust with Lodi, made its appearance at this game. The band was
there with the "million airs." There was not a dull moment throughout
the entire game. The result was a victory for Stockton.
' S. H. S. 19g Oakdale 24.
Then that enthusiastic "bunch" numbering about 200 and the band,
accompanied the team to Oakdale on the 13th of February. There was
no doubt about the victory. NVe had them beat at all kinds of scores be-
fore we arrived. But sad to relate, the results were not as expected, the
team lost out in the second half. Surely spirit was not lacking, and the
team fought hard enough. It was just hard luck.

t GIRLS EwASKt'.T EAI. -l,
HE girls basket ball team closed the season of 1914 unsuccessfully
as far as the winning of games was concerned, but with better pros-
pects for the next year's team than ever before. The outlook at the
beginning of the term was most dubious as only one veteran remained
as the nucleus for a team. An enthusiastic meeting was held and prac-
tice was started with Mrs. NV. VV. VVilIiamson as coach. The team finally
chosen was Ella VVurtz and Maude Taylor, forwardsg Alice Gilmour
and Dorothy Travis, centersg Minda Kettler and Edna Drew, guards.
Later Leah Nyland took the position of Ella VVurtz, who left Stockton.
In the middle of the term the girls' clubs were interested in basket
ball to such an extent that two teams were secured from all the classes
with the exception of the Sophomores. They were rather inhated with
their two years of high school, but by next year no doubt they will get
the proper perspective, along with a cleared realization of the true mean-
ing of school spirit.
This is practically the only part of the school's athletics which is
solely for the girls and there is no reason why it should not rank as high
as any other. To really become a part of the school, one must participate
in its activities, and the girls took prompt advantage of their only oppor-
tunity to participate in the athletics of the school.
The support of the entire student body was more behind girls'
basket ball than ever before, and a continuance of this support can not
fail to increase Stockton High's claims to championship. Witli the
facilities that are being prepared for next year in our new gymnasium
it is hoped that every girl who can do so will avail herself of the oppor-
tunity not only for healthful exercise, but also for a share in a live branch
of the school's activities.
This year the captain was Dorothy Travis and the manager was Iva
Nevins. The newly elected captain for next. year is Maude Taylor, while
the new manager is Leah Nyland.

RACK, the greatest of all school activities in promoting good fellow-
ship, school spirit, and clean sportsmanship, was vastly handicapped
this spring by the unfortunate condition of Captain Carroll Grunsky,
the nation's greatest preparatory school hurdler. Grunsky, who had a
severe and almost fatal attack of typhoid during the latter winter months,
was forced to refrain from violent exertion, for which track is noted, but
although he had not fully recuperated from his late illness, he displayed
superhuman determination and school spirit by appearing upon the oval
and encouraging early training.
Our High School Track, which excels any other high school course
in the state, was completed on March 15th, and we at once proceeded to
run off our "Novice Meet," which was originated by our remarkable
coach, Mr. Toms. The meet was a decided success, and Leo Dunne, the
phenomenal Freshman athlete, totaled the greatest number of points.
"Doc" Dozier, formerly varsity trackman of U. C., realized the
ability of the Stockton lads and, at once, became interested in their wel-
fare and consented to devote much of his precious time to coaching the
boys. He instructed the fellows on all the fine points, which he had
gained from long experience on the track, and his coaching undoubtedly
will be of great value in the future.
During the following week the boys trained strenuously under the
supervision of Coaches Dozier and Toms, and on March 28th, they com-
peted in the San joaquin Valley Sub League meet at Modesto. The
varsity, which was selected with careful discrimination, consisted of
Captain Grunsky, Colestock, Westbay, Kohle, Miller, Love, Dunne,
Higby, Waite and Ahearn, all of whom proved to be point winners.
Although Stockton High secured seven first placesout of twelve
events, Modesto totaled a greater number of points from their numerous
second, third and fourth places. Manager Yost and his team were ably
supported by one hundred and fifty spirited rooters, who chartered a
special train for the occasion.
On April 5th Stockton High was represented at the A. A. L. meet,
which was held on the Stanford oval, by the following track men:
Grunsky, Colestock, Waite, Kohle and Westbay, accompanied by Coach
Toms and Manager Yost. Owing to the tedious ride on the train, the
boys were unable to display their perfect form, but they succeeded in
securing three points.
Owing to the superabundant condition of the school treasury, the
executive committee paid full expenses towards sending a team to the
Stanford Interscholastic meet on April 10th and llth. The delegation
consisted of Grunsky, Colestock, Higby, Westlbay and Manager Yost,
Whose business like negotiations and economy saved the school much
money. They enjoyed the generous hospitality of the Delta Kappa
Epsilon fraternity. Both physicians and athletic trainers advised Grun-
sky to refrain from competition, and as the remainder of the team were
young under-class men, the meet was slightly above their scope, but the
experience derived from this meet, in which hundreds of famous sec-
ondary school athletes were entered, will be of excellent assistance in the
Manager Yost opened the negotiations with our rival High School,

T This year's team was the best all round one produced in this high
school for many seasons. At the start of the season the outlook was
very doubtful, but by hard practicing we worked up a team that the "All
Stars" could not beat. The line-up this year has been practically the
same in all the games:
Catcher, Vogelsang and Mackenzie, pitcher, Wilson and Fanningg
first base, Bernardi Qcaptainj 3 second base, Mazzerag third base, Alley,
shortstop, Arrietta, left field, Mackenzie and Hardacreg center field,
Colestockg right Held, Spragueg substitute, Hardacre.
Vogelsang and MacKenzie behind the bat made that position one of
the strongest in the state.
"Shag" Bernardi has been playing up to the standard and hitting
the ball all the time. "Piamto" Mazzera has been playing a good game,
but isa little slow in covering ground. "Blonde" Alley, at third, has
played a 'consistent game throughout the season. "Frenchy" Arrietta
has been playing good ball, but not up to his standard of last year. The
outfield gets all the praise of Mr. Ellis. They have been playing and
hitting the ball throughout the season. "Nut" Sprague, "Colie" Cole-
stock and "Crab" Mackenzie make up the trio. Fanning's "left hooks"
and Wilson's right ones have been a puzzle to all the teams this year.

LOWLY, with faltering steps and downcast eyes, we entered the
portals of learning for the first time-" So most of the "life his-
tories" begin. But was this true of the class of 'l5? "Nay, On the
contrary," as our celebrated Junior orator, Harry Mazzera, would say,
"this is far from the case."
We calmly and proudly walked through the front door with our
noses in the air and murmured to each other haughtily, "Dear ine, what
are these vulgar people talking about?" XVhen the usual comments
about our extreme youth were made by the upper classmen, we knew
exactly what to do and where to go. We made no stupid blunders, like
sounding the fire alarm to summon the principal. Not we! X1Ve knew
our real worth. Indeed we knew it to such an extent, that we who had
elected to follow the guiding star, Latin, decided that we would take our
true place in fourth year Latin. We did-for a time, then Mr. Ellis
succeeded in convincing us that, although he would miss greatly the
impetus we had given to the Senior class, nevertheless, as a personal
favor to the faculty, we had better begin a little lower in the scale of
A few weeks after this, a half a dozen of us assembled in the study
and with great regard for parliamentary order, at last succeeded in
electing Cy Hickinbotham president, june Young, vice president, and
L. Baldwin secretary, with Illa Tretheway on the Student Control.
Under their able guidance the year sped away quickly. Even at the first

in the distance. Election time came and we assembled in the spacious

Again we organized, this time into the dignity of becoming Sopho-

golden rule, as laid down by the former Sophomores, "Do unto others
as they have done unto you." Again we produced many remarkable
men, such as Van Dennis, Freddie Williams, "Dix" Garland. And such
girls as Ila Tretheway, Margaret Ellis, Lenore Neumiller, Verne Swain.

URINC the noon hour on june lst a general slug fest was held be-
tween the Seniors and juniors, which was known as the Derby
Rush. It was the lirst event of its kind at Stockton High. The
consent of the office was first obtained and the hght was on. The agree-
ment was that no undcrclass men should take part. The lawn was con-
siderably sculifcd up and although clothes were not intentionally torn,
alter the battle both sides presented the appearance of a bunch of Mexi-
can insurrectos. The whole derbies left could be counted on a no-handed
man's hngers. The juniors were evidently opposed to the plan of the
Seniors wearing derbies from the way they scrapped, and the Seniors
were evidently opposed to having their hats taken. The plan carried out
well in view of the fact that everybody seemed happy afterwards and
absolutely no hard feelings were carried away from the lawn.
It was a good clean hght all through and the juniors are worthy of
thanks and praise for the decent spirit of rivalry they showed.
Clowdsley was niussed up quite considerably, damaging somewhat a
perfectly good English suit.
Manthey, '14, and Baldwin, '15, fought it out in a swampy part of
the grass. They had to be taken out and hung on the line to dry.
l1Vhitney, '15, was in the middle, on top and on the bottom. 'He was
everywhere he could get and if he didn't get ten or twelve derbies it's his
own fault. '
IE the next year's football captain had been on the job he could have
scouted out some good material for the coming squad.
Doubtless this rush sets a precedent. We certainly hope so. It is
cleaner than hazing, is more of an even contest and illustrates full well
the friendly class rivalry that always exists. Here's to the future success
of the Derby Rush!
NO'l'lllER leaf in our wreath of laurel was the organization of a
student congress by the United States history classes. The honor
of its origin is justly attributed to Cardinal S. Goodwin, the
instructor. The honor of its success is shared equally by the students
who participated. Many other schools have organized congresses, but
hardly any have carried out the idea so thoroughly as in our S. H. S.
74 GUARD AND TACKLE
There was hardly a detail left out, however small. There were the
various committees and officers, just as exist in our Congress today.
The Republicans handled the wheel of the steam roller successfully
in both houses, and there were many sorry looking Democrats left in
its path. There were, however, some Democrats who presented a stone
wall appearance to the engineers of the Republican smoke wagon. The
invincible Gumpert of the house and the dauntless Banks of the senate,
both brought honor to their party.
Some of the bills drawn up, such as "Bill appropriating 320,000 to
build 100 miles of macadamized road," "Bill providing for protection of
the sea gulls in San Francisco bay," "Act prohibiting baseball to be
played on Sunday in the whole of Pumpkin valley, from Perkins Center
to Corntassel junction," furnished the amusement.
OBODY has forgotten the S. H. S. vaudeville and we hope that
nobody ever will. XfVithout a doubt it was the best all around vaude-
ville show that has been presented by the school talent for many
a day. There was comedy for most and drama for the rest. It was a
show that didn't fail to take, and when all was said and done, and the
smoke of battle had cleared away, it didn't hurt our conscience a bit to
rake in the pile-something like 200 "hecks"-that was cleared. The
show was under the able management of joe XfVhitney, who proved
himself thoroughly capable and resourceful. Isle set a standard which
we sincerely hope will be followed by the coming managers.
The second bright star in our theatrical career this year, was the
'fChimes of Normandy," presented by the music classes of S. I-l. S. under
the direction of Mr. Ballaseyus aided by Mrs. Rose Edwards. There is
no need to add that the presentation touched a high standard. Those
that heard it undoubtedly remember it with pride and satisfaction. The
play was as lucrative, also. as could be hoped. Some time afterwards
the music class presented Professor Ballaseyus with a handsome silver
baton as an evidence of their appreciation of his work. A Wag remarked
later that it was intended as a magic wand with which to draw harmony
out of the music classes, but we wish to say, in reply, that no magic wand
is needed to procure good music from Professor Ballaseyus' pupils.
There is not a bit of doubt in my mind that a revolution of ideas and
customs approaching a small Renaissance was effected in Stockton
High this year. At the beginning of the year, it is not unjust to say,
that the entire spirit of the school was contained within a number of
boys and girls who comprised an alarmingly small fraction of the stu-
dent body. To say that activity was lacking would be evading the point.
The only way we can do justice to the facts is to say that there was no
school activity-absolutely none. And what is more, there was not even
a sign of any. It was no small job to undertake-this entire reform of
626 people-and we can almost appreciate the enormous task of VVarren
Hastings in India of reforming the government, and at the same time
satisfying the people. Our great task was to convince the people that
they were throwing away their golden hours by not utilizing their oppor-
tunities of enjoying life to the utmost in high school, while, at the same
time, they neglected not those "grades," which are erroneously supposed
to be the sole aim of the undergraduate. It took a long time to convince,
much too long, we think, yet, after all, the reward of our patience was
absolute success. Vffe had meetings, boys' meetings, girls' meetings, and

Don't seek to attract attention while awaiting your turn-be busy.

In conclusion I would say to the SENIGRS of the school-again
carefully read over and study these "dont's." Many of them will be of
great service to you in both the Senate and I-louse of Representatives.
If you have an important bill you wish to put through, you naturally
will stand down in front and speak to your fellow students face to face,
vou should meet them as man to man. If you do this then, what will
be of more advantage to you than the foregoing suggestions? To the
UNDERGRADUATES I would say-preserve these "don'ts,'-you will
have use for them later O11-

mixed meetings, where confidential talk was handed out in large doses
with seemingly little effect. However, I can see now that the change
was so gradual that we couldn't detect it. Then barrels of chalk and
energy were used in putting signs on the board, imploring, appealing,
urging and scolding. In fact we used every method known to move
the human mind and body to action. And finally we got this whole big
community, this young city in itself, moving as one unit, one for all, and
all for one.
You may talk about our wonderful theatrical career this year, you
may yell yourselves hoarse about the athletic teams, you may praise the
debating and gurgle with glee at the band, but after all where does all
this greatness spring from? Is it not the interest that each one of us
takes in the welfare of our school that makes these great things possible?
I will answer the question for you. Yes, it is. Above all things our love
for our school and our school life is supreme, and our fonder hopes will
he realized only when this fundamental basis of our happiness in school
life descends through the ages.

THE WOODS AT NIGHT.
The pine trees slowly waved their bushy arms,
And groaned and sighed, while needles from their boughs
Were wafted by the zephyr, noiselessly
To fall among their matted kindred, brown,
And now and then, all muffled came the sound
Of pine nuts patt'ring clown from far above,
They, too, to join the rusty mass beneath
The gnarled, gloomy, soft lamenting pines.
Safe, far above the grasping branches reach,
Reclined the moon, within a lum'nous wreath
Of vapory yielding clouds. Her beams in vain
To penetrate the shadowy dim, did try,
But all was somber blacks and browns, save where
One wand'ring ray, bathed in her silvery light
The blood red flowers of the coming snow.
Beyond the forest's edge, a lithesome stream
Sped down its rocky path of liquid light,
And therein lay the moong and far above,
Her own beams streamed like glinting waves.
Beyond the limpid rippling stream there stretched,
A meadow all bediamonded like ocean's silvery foam.
Upon the meadow's edge arose quite sheer,
A granite clihf that climbed aloft until
It gained itself a never melting cap
Of pure white snow. The blanket glitt'ring, made
A contrast to the pines, that pained the eye
On sudden glance, but 'neath half shad'wing crags,
There was a shade of exquisite pale gold.
-Lester E. Gnekow.

TOAST-TO THE MAIDS OF FOURTEEN.
Here's to the girls of the class of fourteen,
VV'hose spirit and honor above human esteem
Has made this class above others supreme.
Yes, a glass to the fair sex whose patient endurance
Has made our success inevitable assurance.
Last night as I mused by the log's somber smoke,
I went to sleep, and afore I awoke
I dreamt of the maidens of whom I just spoke.
All the girls of fourteen, in exquisite array,
Came tumbling in and snatched me away.
VVith babbling laughter they carried me on,
Until they had reached the old high school lawn.
VVith hilarious song they set up a roar,
Wliicli the old oaks echoed as never before-
Caught by the twilight's earliest ray,
I glanced to the east, and to my dismay,
XfVhen I looked once more they had floated away.
Now in your mind can you vision a scene
Of an atmosphere filled with mirth more serene
Than that which filled my frolicking dream
Of the cute little lassies of the class of fourteen?
So, now if you clon't deem such a thing wrong,
I'll drown in this glass my babbling song.

To my friend I-I- W-.
In time of loneliness and sober thought
My fancy leads me far afield, in dreams
One gift is mine to choose from all, it seems
I see the wealth of kings, but all is bought.
In heaps of gold and precious stones I sought,
But princely gifts I pass, for though it teems
VVith wealth, my eyes slip by like lantern gleams
VV'hat gift is there that with no gold is fraught?
The heart guards one no gold can buy nor sell:
,Tis friendship, free to rich or poor: it casts
Wfith reckless hands the gift to all who seek.
No need to search in dreams for I will tell
XfVhat I have found the greatest gift-it lasts
Until the end-Friendship! be not so meek!

Carlton-No, what is it?
Lloyd-lfVell, they invented an apparatus for extracting nitrogen

Convention of the Debating League of California 006 90-
CContinued from Page 542
Hurrah! Let us give six big rahs! The Stockton High School
Debating Society has been admitted to membership in the Debating
League of California. The iron shackles that bound the Society to local
existence have been broken! The road to expansion and fame is now
open to us. Now can we go out and win honors and glory lor the school
as well as can the representatives of other school activities. Our active
membership will not commence until the hrst of next term, but at that
time there is no question in my mind but that our teams will carry off
many honors-honors symbolized by medals for the individual debaters
and trophies for the school. l' say there is no question because of the fact
that the large percentage of our most promising debaters are under-grad-
uates. They have had valuable training this year which will better pre-
pare them to go forth next term and win new honors for themselves and
for their school. We are going to have a chance to meet out old and
ancient enemy, Lodi, on a new field of battle. NVill we be able to defeat
representatives of that school in the field of debate and thus open up the
way for final debates with the winners in the other districts oi the
League? Xdfe hope and expect that the answer will prove to be in the
aliirmative. At any rate the S. H. S. D. S. will make all other schools
fight every inch of the way.
But now to the 32nd convention of the Debating League of Califor-
nia, held at the Lodi Union High School on the 4th of April. Our school
was represented by Agler Ellis and the writer. Arriving in Lodi at
about 9:45 a. ni. we were met by a delegation of Lodi students and es-
corted to the spacious High School building. After inspecting the build-
ing, we were invited to attend the business session of the League. When
Stockton, by unanimous vote, was admitted to membership, six loud
HOU-RAYS went up for the I-lub City, all of the titty delegates present
joining in the yell. The meeting lasted until 12:00 m., at which time all
present adjourned to the splendidly equipped cafeteria of the school,
where a splendid banquet was served the visitors. Toasts and speeches
were made by representatives of the Lodi, Humboldt, Lick, Lowell and
Stockton Debating Societies. And the oratory would have done justice
to descendents of Lincoln or of 'vVebster.
At 2 p. m. an extemporaneous debate was held on the subject, "Re-
solved, That all municipalities of the United States of a population of
5,000 or over should adopt the commission form oi government." The
medal offered for the best individual speaker was won by Miss Lim-
baugh, the Lodi representative.
The Senior play, "Trelawney of the NVells," was produced for the
entertainment of the visitors in the evening. Xhfhile waiting between the
tirst and second acts, I was startled by loud noises from the gallery.
Suddenly I awakened to the realization that the famous Stee-G-C-K-
T-O-N yell was being given with all the vim and "pep" of the Stockton
rooters. I whirled around in my seat and looked up in the gallery,
There was my old friend "Scotty" Hyde leading a large Lodi rooting
section, gesticulating as wildly as ever. After the splendid performance
was over, l went up to him and said, "Scotty, the 'sodas' are on me."
The next convention ofthe League will be held at Lick High School
in San Francisco, at which time it is hoped Stockton will be represented
by a large delegation. l

Dear Merle: Your letters are few and far between, but when they
do get here they're welcome. Yes, our regular elections are over and
this year Carleton Davis is president: Marie Schneider, vice president:
Russell Payne, secretary and treasurer, and Clarence Buthenuth, ser-
geant-at-arms. VVe've started up the Debating Club again and many
are taking active parts in debates in Miss l'lowell's room. If this can
be kept up we expect to produce some famous orators. Emil Gumpert
bids fair, as well as many others of our classmen. It's a good thing
and the more we get started the better off the school will be, but of
course we can't be always doing strictly benehcial things like that. The
other night the Seniors gave a jolly-up and some of us Junior fellows
made a rush on them. Girls' shrieks and masculine commands mingled
very harmoniously in our ears, and after some pranks we vanished. I
w0n't mention the next week's events in the vicinity of the ofhce, as
you can well imagine.
Parker and Grunsky have won for our class and themselves many
athletic honors by coming out first in the Stanford nd U. C. meets and
by their excellent showing at Chicago, where they took fourth place.
Speaking of dances, your imagination will have to be elastic to
picture the fun we had at Oak Park. The Seniors were our guests and
sufficient to say the moonlight was equal to any Shelley ever saw. Our
assessment for a class pennant was used to pay some of the expense,
but we can get more from where that came from. This will have to be
enough news for this time, as you realize how busy a junior is. Wislming
you were here, I remain,
Dear Merle: Did you ever hear of such a thing as the girls having
a club, the name of which they won't tell the boys? Surely girls are
odd. Our girls call themselves Q. E. D. and they do a lot in the way
of having good times. First of all, and most important to us, was the
feed they gave the Senior boys. The speeches were passing fair, but I
paid more attention to the "eats" They were "swell" They gave a
nursery party in the gym for the Freshmen girls. We boys don't know
anything about what they did, but the reports are cheerful. They had
a jolly-up, a reception for the parents and teachers, and a live-mile hike,
too, besides a picnic at Oak Park for the children of the home. At
Christmas each girl had a doll to dress and a stocking to till for the
home. They undertook to give one afternoon a week to the children
in sewing, music and stories, and their efforts have been a success
according to all accounts.
Now, I don't think I have broken mv vows to bachelorship, but
when a fellow sees -girls that do things he can't help mentioning it.
Talk about "pep." S. H. S. has its share this year. I think it's
because we have some good leaders where they belong. Charles Clowds-
ley is Senior president, Germaine Stewart, vice presidentg Lloyd Drury,
secretary and treasurer, Wfillard Wallcer, sergeant-at-arms. Bob Travis
is yell leader, and the new system has simply made everybody Yell, with
a capital letter. The girls do their share, too, honestly they are of some
use after all, I do believe, I

Athletics have taken a big boost this year. We will never forget
the trainload that turned out to the Oakdale basket ball game and the
crowd that went to Modesto. Our track star, George Parker, went to
Australia, winning for us, our state and our nation many honors.
Quoting from Emil Gumpert, "There is one thing I can't forget
because it stays in my memory," and that is our Senior year of United
States history. Mr. Goodwin knows how to make his students dig up
volume after volume of history from every library in town, private or
public, until we wished all historians had died in infancy. But we cer-
tainly did enjoy our Congress and I think we got more good out of it
than we ever could by just studying about it. lfVe all like Mr. Goodwin,
but the words, historical essay or charts, make us start like a frightened
deer. Quite poetical? That's Miss I-Iowell's influence.
If you want to see something grand in the line of a class pennant,
just step inside our assembly halls The class of '14 leads them all in
everything, and I confess this with all modesty.
Wfe have received a rounded education indeed, what with United
States history, athletics. Debating Club, big "S" vaudeville, "The Chimes
of Normandyfi the band and last, but not least, art, art manifested
along the lines of sign painting, as some of us fellows can testify.
Say, I hope you can get off to come to our Senior play. It promises
to be the best ever given by this I-ligh. Miss Howell, the cast and Mrs
Edwards, the coach, are sparing neither work nor time in order to perfect
it. If you can't get a week off, quit. There's plenty more jobs for a
fellow like you and vou won't be sorry you came. Luck is against me.
I have to give a speech in English, but that's nothing when you get
used to it. I'll see you at the play.
It has always been the custom to weep at commencement exercises,
and one may be sure that weeping will be copious, about june 18th of
this year. Wfhy mothers, sisters, brothers and teachers should cry and
thereby enter into a spirit of sadness on that occasion is not known, nor
is it debated or questioned by the multitude. But after all have toiled
to bring their oflispring to a full state of manhood or womanhood-and
then when they see those young people about to exercise that power they
have striven so long to possess, it seems that the whole family bursts
out into a spirit of damp passion and wish Jimmie and -lane were babies-
just common, innocent babies once more!
This is not, however, the spirit of the fellows you left behind. You,
the Senior class of 1914, have accomplished much, not only as individuals
but as a class. Your ideas, achievements and honors which you leave
behind you remain for us to fulfill and to sustain. W'e, therefore, envy
you because of the things which you have accomplished and seem so
capable of accomplishing in the near future.
This high school grows and will continue to grow, but neither
buildings nor individuals make any difference, it is still "Stockton High,"
and in order to show that we, the class of 1917, have profited by your
examples, we want to bid you success. But, remember also, that we did
it with El htfaltliy smile upon our lips and not with a moistened cheek.

A WONDROUS TALE OF ADVENTURE.
just stop a minute, my friend, and you will hear
The strangest tale e'er told for many a year.
'Twill make your brunette locks stand up in fright,
And often wake you in the midst of night.
There was a ship, in which three men did sail,
Myself, a jew, a cook just out of jail.
lNe sought the southern seas, and treasure old,
That which the Spaniards lost, silver and gold.
From San Francisco bay we started out,
A most entrancing place without a doubt,
And as the Golden Gate was lost to view,
We each and every one of us well knew
That we wouldlspencl full many a weary day,
Ere our good ship should rest upon that bay.
lrVe sailed and sailed and sailed and still we sailed,
Until we thought that surely we had failed,
And though the sun shone brightly on the wave,
Both cook and jew did shriek and yell and rave
And wring their hands and weep and walk the deck
So that our ship did nearly have a wreck.
And then one morn, the sun came up to show
An island just across our windward bow.
It was a pretty place, so fresh and green,
I thought it was the nicest spot l'd seen.
We dropped our anchor in the little bay
And, disembarking, on the sands did pray.
But while we stood there talking on the beach,
We heard within the woods a fearful screech.
It seemed to freeze us as we stood, and then
Came rushing forth a horde of savage men.
Before we could escape, they seized us three
And quickly bound us to the nearest tree.
Then while we watched, some swam out to our boat
And scuttled her so she'd no longer Hoat.
When this was done, they all surrounded us
And danced around and made an awful fuss,
Until at last when dusk was coming on,
His sword and shield and spear each one did don.
WVe were unloosed and forced to stand upright
And then we marched away into the night.
just as the sun was peeping o'er the trees
There came an odor wafted by the breeze,
Which to our jaded senses seemed to be
The smell of cooking bacon and hot tea.
As we advanced, a village came to view
And then we saw our bacon was a stew
NVhich two big men were stirring with a stick,
And many times the biggest one would lick
The stick to see if it was of the right
Consistency. We were now all affright,
And shook. But then to our surprise the chief
Did lead us forward and a piece of beef

He gave to each of us with signs to eat.
VVhen we had done, he led us to a seat
VVithin a hut, and tied us there with ropes.
A week we languished there, and all our hopes
I-Iad vanished in the air, when one bright day
Two men came in and took the cook away.
Wfe never saw him more. but late that night
VVe were awaked by awful screams of fright.
It was the cook. He went to make a meal
For all the tribe. And then' we both did kneel
Upon the ground and pray for help and aid.
The Jew was next to go. I-Ie also made
A feast for all that tribe. At last one morn
From that dark hut with struggles I was torn.
They took me to an open space where men
I-lad placed a cauldron o'er a hre, and then
They bound me to a stake where I could see
Them as they worked. At last they set me fre
And led me to the kettle, seething hot.
They were about to place me in the pot,
XVhen suddenly the men their necks did crane,
And looking up I saw a monoplane,
Itcircled high above us in the air,
And throwing into all the crowd a scare,
Came swiftly swooping down upon the ground.
The natives scattered, running all around,
But I, in joy, ran towards the gray machine,
Which now stood still upon the verdant green.
Out of the 'plane the aviator stepped,
And on his neck I threw myself and wept.
A few well chosen words revealed my plight.
At once the monoplane resumed its flight,
And as we Hew along, he told me why
He was thus flying through the trackless sky.
"To San Francisco I was on my way
To see if I could cut the time a day
From old New Zealand to the western coast
Of California. It's been my boast
That I could do it. But you see, my friend,
As o'er that island I my course did wend,
I saw that crowd of savage men, and so
I drifted down and saved your life, you know."
I-Ie ceased. and nothing more was said until
The heavens all with stars began to fill:
The lights of San Francisco pointed out
And said that we were there without a doubt.
So I came back, unharmed from my long trip,
But not the cook or Jew or our old ship,
For out in the Pacific there's an isle
That'1l hold their bones, I think, for quite a wl

"Gee, l'm tired running" was the slang used by the team. VVC just
simply walked away. Every man pounded the ball. Fanning and Wil-

The "laps" beat us. XlVl1Z1lL do you know about that? But they

THE YEAR'S DEBATING ACTIVITIES.
S. H. S.g Lowell Hi.
This team was the best produced in this high school for many years
and it looks as if it would be many years to come before another one will
equal it. lVorking under the difficulties. they have yet reached a high
position in athletic circles. Not a bit of support, no interest taken what-
soever, and still they won. There were games played when not a teacher
came out, but still they won. I wonder how many games the football
and basket ball teams would have won?
Stockton 65 Napa 2.
One of the best games played this year. No wonder! Look at the
"co-eds" who were rooting. It put a lot of "pep" in the game. Fanning
pitched a masterful game, and was backed by his team.
The Napa team played well, but their "big league" pitcher was not
there and S. H. S. pounded him all over the lot. Colestock stole five
bases. Not a man stole on Vogelsang, who caught a wonderful game.
Batteries-Napa, Hennessy, Vlfassumg- Stockton, Fanning, Vogel-
S. H. S. 55 Lowell 9-State Title.
The dirtiest team in the state is Lowell. There is not one ball player
in the team. It was the easiest nine we played this year but errors and
dirty playing won the game for them. Fanning pitched good ball until
the seventh inning, when he was replaced by Nelson. who had them
guessing the rest of the game. At last reports a protest was before the

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERNY'
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
'Tis better to have swung and missed
Than never to have seen the ball.
It takes a sport to stand the gaff,
To take a panning with a grin.
That's why you choke when you reflect
On what you think you might have been.
So give released recruits a thought
Remember they are just like you.
They tried and failed, their hearts are sore,
They weep, they're feeling mighty blue.
But when you've lost a luscious job
You'll swat a moralizing guy
Wlio savs 'tis better to have failed
Than 'never to have had a try.

The next year we spent in teaching the mere Freshmen their proper
place, and grappling hard with the mysteries of isosceles triangles. Our
officers were, Charles VVhitney, presidentg Geraldine Parker, vice presi-
dent, and Harriet Post, Student Control.
Our junior year marked quite a change in our usual routine. As
soon as we stepped into the hall on the 14th of September, We felt an
odd stir in the air. "VVhat is it P" We whispered to each other with bated
breath. We found out when we held our election, The study was
crowded with all the members of the junior class, and a spirited and
close election was held. It was the formal introduction of class spirit to
the class of '15. The results of the election were: Herbert Waite, presi-
dent, Doris Patton, vice president, Grace Harper, secretary, June
Young, Buteau Lundy, Student Control.
And that class spirit didn't die out in one grand burst, either. The
VV. XV. llV.,S were an important aid to its remaining alive. The girls
showed more get-together spirit in their club than has been seen in a
long while. They gave a great many delightful affairs, too, besides
accomplishing a lot of good at the Children's Home with their birthday
In athletics also, our class has been most prominent. Wliat kind of
a basket ball team could we have had without Captain Comfort, Cy .Hick-
inbotham, McKay and McKenzie-all Juniors?
After reading this article I'm sure you all wish you'd been lucky
enough to belong to the '15 Juniors, but just wait till we come back
grave and reverend seniors! Next year we shall surpass all our past
records, all that have been made by any previous Senior class.
ON LEAVING HIGH SCHOOL.
Our high school days are numbered,
The end is drawing near,
But tho' with knowledge 'cumbered,
We Find no cheer.
This time last year
Found school a hated foeg
But now a parting friend
It seems, how little do we know
Vifhat course our fortunes blend:
Our school at end.
NVhen other years have rolled around,
VVe'll know the school of life,
lfVe'll look back at a happier day
Withotit sad strife.
But a new life
May bring to every man a share,
To him who does his best,
For the school of life lays every virtue bare,
And gives the good man rest,
WVith fortune blest.

Sacramento, for a duel meet on the 18th and after Weeks of consideration,
Sacramento consented, but unpreventable circumstances arose which
caused the postponement of this proposed meet and all attempts to ar-
range a meet on a later date were unsuccessful.
It is hoped that we shall meet Sacramento High on track next year
during the hrst of the season, and it would be advisable to make this an
The Pacific Coast Interscholastic was held at Berkeley on April
24th and 25th in connection with the third semi-annual convention of the
Tallac Club. There were four Stockton lads in this meet, namely, Wil-
liams, Love, Hickenbotham and Kohle, and there were many rooters
present to cheer them.
Although track was not so prominent and successful in point win-
ning this year, it did more for the school than ever before.
It encouraged competition and resulted in making the esteemed
sport very popular. The outlook for next year is very promising, as
Captain Grunsky will be the only loss to this year's varsity. The team
displayed excellent judgment in electing DeWitt Colestock for captain of
the 1915 team, and much of the future success depends upon him. Higby,
Love, Hickenbotham, VVaitc. Dunne and Westlmay will all return to
school next year, and with a few months of earnest training all will cle-
velop into point winners in every meet entered. l9Iere's to absolute suc-
cess in 1915.

ggzoofgwvesffg ESPITE the fact that the Stockton High School has as a
' jg 25 member of its 1914 track team Carroll Grunsky, the cham-
ri gg 7 pion 'fprepf' school hurdler of the state, who was a large
" JJ Xl point-winners in the state meets of last year, and also of
gat? several other less formidable athletes, who bid fair to make
names for themselves as track stars, our team has fallen
down in every meet in which they participated this year. Captain Grun-
sky was out of form in each competition, due to his recent illness, and
while close followers of track in the state said he had gone back, we know
better and only wait for him to make varsity hurdlers look to their
laurels when he enters California next year.
Yet in spite of the loss of Grunsky, the school can count on Dunne,
Colestock, Higby, and a few others who developed this year, to bring
glory to themselves and to the colors of Blue and Wliite in meets to
come. These athletes showed in this year that they had the "stuff" and
only needed development to make stars of them.
Wliile the high school greatly missed the services of George Parker,
who with Grunsky captured every meet in 1913, the students were glad to
see him selected as a member of the "All-American" team, which toured
and conquered Australia. Parker left school to make this trip, but he
will probably enter Stanford the coming semester, so his services have
not altogether been lost to the amateur world as yet. The names of
Parker and Grunsky, although they may never set foot on Stockton soil
again, will never be forgotten by local high school pupils in years to

come and it is the prediction of their class mates that their equals will
never again be seen in any one school.
Dr. Dozier, a Stockton boy and a former middle distance runner in
the University of California, offered his services to us this year, and it
was largely through his fine coaching that we had whatever success that
we did. Students who watched the work of Dr. Dozier, have nothing
but praise for him, and here's hoping they can secure him again next year.
Concerning the sub-league meet, we lost it-as you all know,
Modesto won. A small fas compared with our rootersj, crowd of Mo-
destans witnessed their lads capture the meet in their home city. Mainly,
through "scientific" measuring of the "judges," Stockton lost several
just placesg the broad jump, for instance, which Dunne lost by V20 of
an inch. Picture Modesto Hi students of geometry or trigonometry
measuring such a fraction in a pit of sawdust. We should worry. lrVe
are satisfied that our athletes are better than theirs, and what more
could be wanted?
Concerning the future of track at S. H. S. the near point winners
of this year's team will surely show their class in the next year of com-
petition, so here's for a big year in 1915!

List to this story in annals of good Father Time.
A Senior's greeting to Freshies so simple and green
Such a doing-those kiddies-with bottles of cream
Such dear little darlings-in infant array,
Oh, weren't they sweet on that Freshiesl great day?
For Mother Goose rhymes "Ring round a rosy,"
Seniors, we thank you-you made it so cosy.
Each Freshie felt tickled with heart pit-a-pat,
Verily, oh verily, the babes missed their afternoon nap.
Engaging once more in the study's hard rub
Now the Freshies formed a wise little club.
Together they hied to Mrs. Minta's room,
Elected their ofhcers-no inharmonious tune.
Energetic Cecil lkfatkins first president, if you please,
Next electing Alice Doolittle vice president with ease.
Secretary-treasurer to Marion Moffit completed all needs,
To work with a vigor for Christmas kind deeds.
On January twenty-first, the girl Freshies lunched neat,
Choice were the good things-a dandy treat.
Kindly remember, that on Valentine day
The girls came in garments, most brilliantly gay.
On an April lst they went for a hike,
Now the Misses Ohm and Cliberon chaperoned right.
Here's tothe Class of Seventeen!
In rhyme its history may be seen.
Good faithful scholars always are we,
Happy and jolly, until through We be.

First Impressions '
S many of you know, the first impressions are the lasting
Lp Nj, ones, of course: Not that it makes any ditterence what l
I 75 think, but I'm just telling you.
l1o As I climbed the stone steps at the entrance of this
D LD, great hall oi learning, on that memorable hrst Monday in
March, I will admit that my poor knees were somewhat
shaky, and little lumps rose in my throat as I stood about, fearing to ask
any one to direct me to the office, where I might tell my name and family
history, be duly questioned as to the temperance of my habits, and last,
but not least, be enrolled as one of the students of this magnilicent High
Finally, after many stutterings, stammerings and stoppings, I asked
a handsome youth to direct me to the oflice. I-Ie looked at me with a con-
descending air and asked me if I were a new boy. I had always thought I
looked as much like a boy as anyone else, but I promptly agreed with
him, whereupon he took me in tow, politely steered me up to the muchly
dreaded oflice, but immediately sailed away, leaving me to my fate. I
dared not turn back because a little short man had spotted me, and, nod-
ding a greeting, motioned me to await his plearure, which I was glad
oi the chance to do, for had he started to cross-examine me then, I
might have told him my real name and lots of other things besides.
I had to wait some little time and you can take it from me, I was
not asleep. I saw pretty fairies trip lightly in, smile a little smile, say a
little speech, and trip out as lightly as they entered. Right then I made
up my mind that I was going to be principal of some High School some
day. I also saw handsome and stately youths stroll in, confer in whis-
pers with a black-haired man, and walk out in a very dignihed and con-
My turn came and I was sent to a little room in the basement to see
what I could learn about Caesar, etc. I walked into the room as if I
owned it, looked around, then marched up to the desk. The man at the
aforesaid desk gave me the "once over," handed me a pretty smile QI still
have itj and told me to go over in the corner and sit down.
I was conscious that I had created quite a stir in the room, and as I
sat down I could hear whisperings about my personal appearance. Une
said, "Doesn't he look funny in that suit?" Another, "My, look at him
blush," etc. I ielt like an animal at a circus. I half expected some girl
to throw me a peanut or a piece of popcorn to see if I would growl or

I lost my heart to about seventeen girls that day. And such girls.
Such pretty eyes, hair and lips. Such lovely smiles would have 611-

But I have not mentioned the fellows. I shook hands with little

some greeted me with the very feminine air of "I am pleased to meet

Then my friend asked me to go to opera practice. He said he knew
all the principals and that he would introduce me to the leading lady.
Of course I went, and here I was "knocked down" to a number of fairies

myself a seat in the baldheaded row so I could hear everything there was

BOYS' BASKET BALL.
tContinned from Page 621
S. H. S. 21g Oakdale 14.
Of course the finals had to be played on a neutral court. It was
played February 23rd at Turlock. The game did not lack spirit through-
out. The sentiment of the Turlock enthusiasts were in our favor. The
excellent team work was too much for the Oakdale players and the linal
score declared Stockton winner of the San joaquin Valley Sub-League
S. H. S. 175 Lowell 27.
On February 28th the team played Lowell for semi-final championship.
The team did not lack "pep" but played against luck and serious odds.
Lee Hfickinbotham was injured but Kay McKenzie took his place and put
up a wonderful defense against fellows twice his size. The chalk seemed
to have a grudge against Stockton and it took revenge by recording the
score for Lowell.
The basket ball games were well attended and well worth attending.
The school spirit ran high in the veins of everyone. Too much can not
be said of the excellent support rendered by the school, and at the same
time we must add our hearty thanks to the band. "Spirit, is right" when
applied to the band. They all turned out and rendered their assistance
free of charge. Three big ones for the band.
Those receiving their black "S" for service on the basket ball team
are: Captain Comfort, forward, Lee I'Iickinbothan1, forward: Kay Mc-
Kenzie, forward, B. Laviego, center: l. Dennis, center: C. Grunsky,
eenterg N. Emerson, guardg Cy 1-Iickinbotham, guard, C. NVhitney,
guard, and E. Kohle, guard.
MY LATIN PONY.
You may talk of your trusty burro,
Or the horse, that's the Arab's crony,
But tho' they are true, they can't compare
To my dog-eared Latin pony.
My pony he is the bravest,
He cost me one dollar plus,
He conquers "Caesar's Legions,"
That plucky little cuss.
Nothing can stop his ramblings,
Not eren Cicero's speeches,
He tears right thru, then looks around
And for more gayly screeches.
My friend is getting ancient,
I-Ie's moth-eaten and slightly bony,
But still-I bow to you,
My trusty Latin Pony.

THE STOCKTON HIGH SCHOOL-PRESENT, PAST AND
The Stockton High School held its first session on january 10, 1870,
in the two front rooms on the second floor of the old Washington Gram-
mar School. Mr. A. H. Randall was principal and Mr. S. D. NVaterman
his assistant, the two teaching the eight subjects of the three years course
to the twenty-eight pupils enrolled. The lirst graduating class, Decem-
ber 23, 1870, number three: Lottie F. Grunsky, Alice M. Mills and
Ewald Grunsky, uncle of Carroll Grunsky of the class of 1914.
In 1877 Miss Lottie Grnnslcy was added to the faculty as a third
teacher, the enrollment being 70, three courses being offered, business,
literary and scientific. Mr. XfVaterman succeeded Mr. Randall as princi-
pal in 1883, serving seven years, when he was succeeded by Mr. Hamilton
Wallace, who remained but two years, being followed by Robert F.
Pennell, who resigned at the end of the lirst year. During Mr. NVallace's
term, in 1891, the increase in enrollment necessitated the addition of a
fourth teacher and a third story to the old grammar school building,
five rooms being used for the high school.
Mr. Herbert Miller was at the head of the high school from 1893 to
1895, the latter year being the date of the lirst issuance of the Guard and
Tackle. In 1893, the enrollment then being 175, a fourth year was added
to the course and the commercial course was enlarged. lt still contained
the academic course, English and mathematics, but it was not until 1905
that the present purely commercial course was organized, at which time
a purely elective course was also introduced. Mr. Miller served but two
years when he was succeded by Mr. D. A. Mobley, who was principal
for seven years, Mr. F. 13. Perhani taking his place for the one year
Mr. C. M. Ritter, who succeeded Mr. Mobley in 1902, remained four
years. He organized the literary, scientific, English and modern lan-
guage courses which continued in use with practically the same re-
quirements until 1912. Under Mr. Ritter the sectional library cases were
ordered and the books numbered, but not under a classified series. The
enrollment at the end of Mr. Ritter's first year, 1902-03, was 336, the
This same year was the last at the old VVashington school. Gnly
five of the present faculty were in the school at that time: Mr. Ridenour,
who entered in 1895, Miss 1-lowell and Mrs. Minta in 19013 Mr. Garri-
son in 1902 Cleft for the principalship of Ukiah High School in 19072,
and Miss Daly in 1903. The following September marked the beginning
of instruction in the present building.
Mr. Ritter was followed in 1906 by Mr. F. B. XIVOOUZI1, who was
principal from 1906 to 1909. Under Mr. Wfooten French and Greek were
dropped, an appointive system of student control was introduced and
many of the present pictures purchased through an art exhibit. Mr.
Ansel S. Williams succeeded Mr. lfVooten in 1909 and served as principal
until October, 1911, when he was elected city superintendent of schools,
Mr. Noel H. Garrison being chosen as his successor.
During Mr. 'VVilliam's term the department of music and agricul-
ture were organized and the appointive student control changed to an
elective one. Mr. W. Fred Ellis acted as principal from October, 1911,
to january, 1912, when Mr. Garrison assumed charge ofthe school. Dur-
ing the present administration the course has been reorganized o11 a
fifteen unit basis with major and minor subjects, greater choice being
given not only by the selection of majors and minors but also through

electives, representing one-third of the course. The purely elective sys-
tem has been abolished. The administrative system of the school has
been changed to the card index form for all records of scholarship,
attendance, etc., as well as for the library, which has been reclassified
and recatalogued under the same plan as all public libraries. Steel
lockers have been purchased, additional pictures have been provided
through an art exhibit, the debating society has been rehabilitated, a
lyceum course has been introduced, three vice principals, an advisor for
girls and an olhce assistant and librarian have been appointed, a bond
issue of SlO0,000 has been carried, the departments of industrial arts,
household economics and physical training have been inaugurated, three
new buildings being now constructed for that purposeg sanitary towels
and drinking fountains have been introduced and provision has been
made for holding all social functions at the school.
Such in brief, is the history of the Stockton l-ligh School in its main
features from its organization to the present time.
LIMERICKS AND KINDRED TRASH.
The lim used in the preparation of these limericks is scientifically
separated and prepared from the very best brand of imported liniberger

lt makes me sad as I sit and think,
And stir my pen in the muddy ink,
Of the dope l've written for C- or D-
That never saw light in the "KL K T."
There was a young fellow named Rex
NVho the girls did certainly vex,
Until he met Bess
NVho quickly said "Yes,"
And now he is quiet, by heck.
There is a young fellow called Lloyd
Wfho possesses a bunch of sangfroid.
Though he's not very rulgf,
I-lis teachers heill bluff.
l-le also sings songs like a boid.
'l'here's a mysterious club called HQ. li. D."
Formed of nice Senior girls, 'tis said:
XVhen they go for a walk
They do nothing but talk
Of the boys they have in their head.
There is a young scout called Louie.
NVho cooked hot dogs a la flouie,
His horse rings a bell
And Louie doth yell,
"I-lot dogs, peanuts and chop suey."
There is a young fellow called Spike
Who rides around on a bike
Until he essayed
'l'o ride over a spayed,
And now poor Spike has to hike.

The fellows are all right there.
Oh! She's a bear-a hlonde perhaps.
Can't you guess how the kids all stare?
Kute little smile, and pretty eyes.
Their coats and ties they hx.
On her face an expression sly,
Now they tumble just like bricks.
Her glance takes in the double row.
In a second she makes her choice.

Her answer is, "No," in a sweet little voice,
Softly they speed in a motor-fast.
Can anything equal the joy?

On the next morn. though, the joy is past,
Over the sun a shadow is cast,
Little blonde snuhs the boy!
