The class of 1915 has gone down the old, old trail that all classes
have gone, and all must go. All that remains is a memory of what We
have done or tried to do. Once more a block of copper has heen added
to the ever increasing row of memorials that line the entrance to the
school: an inanimate witness to our too brief sojourn here, while the
living witnesses to the happy scenes and pleasant hours spent within
the majestic. ivy-clad Walls of Stockton High have scattered like chaff
upon the harsh storm of life.
VVhen we realize that no more are We to know the pleasure of high
school daysg that no more can we assemble as the Class of 1915 in
Room 6 and plan Jolly-Upsg that never again can we wear the proud
Blue and VVhiteg but that we must forever turn our hacks upon scenes
that are clear to usg when We realize this, there comes over our hearts
a spirit of sadness that no joy of graduation can erase, and it is then that
the humble but fresh Freshman is an object of deepest envy to the
produest Senior that ever stormed from the platform or starred on the
But with our sense of regret we have a feeling of consolation in the
fact that our days as members of Stockton are not over, but extend
until the end of time, and if, in the future, there comes a time when
Stockton High School calls upon us for aid or support, we will not fail
her, even as we have not failed her in our four years spent as members
of the Student Body. Rajah, '15,
There will be many congratulations and praises showered upon
you. graduates, and it will seem as if the whole community needed your
services and rejoiced in knowing that you were preparng to render
them However, these congratulations, so sincere and well meant, must
not be considered a surrender of your ability. These praises, which for
the moment overwhelm you and awaken you to some new power you
hardly surmised you possessed, should not be taken too seriously. For,
graduates. it is true the community needs you, but you must remember
success is a common goal and is everyone's aim. To attain it you must
be worthy of it, and to be worthy of it is to work, to strive and to slave
Life is no dream, but a reality. The more earnest one is. the more
vivid is life Your duty is therefore not only to do well, but to do better
than your fellows. If you maintain the same standard as you have in
the past four years you can not help but achieve whatever you under-
take This is no boast nor exaggeration of your ability, but an exact
estimate of what you have done. For we, your friends and schoolmates
who have come in contact with you every day of your school life, know
you better than your instructors and, perhaps, even your own relatives
VVhen we wish you :success and assure you that we know you are
capable of attaining it, do not consider it any empty boast nor just a
mere conventionalitv. For we know you, are conhdent in you. and are
willing to vouch for you. Wie wish you success, not because others
have done so. but because we know and confide in you.
Dk is :cf 1:1
There may be a time in the future when the rain beats down on a
well shingled roof and you are sittng by an open fireplace in a big cozy
chair with vour arms crossed behind your head and your legs stretched
out at full length, that your thoughts do nothing but wander. If such
be the case let them wander on slowly backward through the years to
1915, the year that you graduated from dear old Stockton High School.
Try to remember what happened and the good times we used to
have. Think of those lessons and the cramming for examinations.
Think of the ones and the ones and the Hunks you made. Then get up
and poke the fire and settle down for a good long backward review.
Perhaps you played on the bootball team, and once more you will save
the day by a long run through the enemy's defense. Once more you
will be electrified and rejuvenated by the prolonged cheers which
pronounce you once more a hero.
Let your thoughts follow the crowd of students out into the "gym"
to a rally. There's the place where we did the yelling that brought
victory to many a team. Stay around the gymnasium now until evening
and once more attend the Sophomore dance with that blue-eyed little
blonde you thought so sweet during your high school days. XVonder
what became of her!
Then there was the Senior play. Gee. VVhat a grind it was to learn
your part, but it was worth it. Yes, you were some actor all right.
And the profs. Didn't they give us a pain then? But now -well, we
fee ethics in their madness. 1Ve knew more than they did then but now
we realize that we didn't even know that we knew nothing.
You can go on and on and keep bringing up the old times and it
may be that you will long to do it over again. Yes. even to start from
the first as a Freshman. Then you'll stop dreaming, arouse yourself
and run up into the attic where deep down in the bottom of an old
cobwebbed trunk you will resurrect one of those antiquated Commence-
ment Guard and Tackles. You will stop right where you are for a
glance through those dust-covered leaves at the photographs of your
fellow graduates. You'll recall some pleasant instant with each. You
will read-just this. Then you will be glad that good Dame Fortune
gave you the privilege of spendng four of the best years of your life in
such a place as Stockton High School. -

To the Editor of "The Guard and Tackle:
VVhen one leaves behind him the schools and girls and fellows that
he has grown up with he becomes as a spectator at a football game.
He sees the same things he has seen for years through different eyes.
l-Ie is a participant no longer. I-Ie becomes a critic. For practically a
year now I have been away from Stockton. I have not become a critic,
though, in the general sense in which we usually speak of critics-as
one from whom no praise is to be expected. I'm oozing with eulogy,
bubbling with gladness, and chuck full of complimentary things to tell
you. I have mingled with the audience and I've heard them tell just
exactly how they feel and what they think of the educational show at
Stockton. I mean, of course, the new High School with its modernized
methods that bespeak a 100 per cent efficiency.
Those of us who have lived in Stockton for years look too much
upon the opinions of the Bay City folk as a "hand-me-down" of a high
tribunal. Stockton to them has been classed with the species "jerk-
waterf' Stockton, with them now, is classed under the genus and
species name of "urbis magnisf' CI hope I've got it right-I'm not using
a dictionaryj And it's all through the activities of the council and
the people that have voted so willingly for school bonds, for it is of the
schools and particularly the high school that I hear so much.
Down here they say that there is a high school at Stockton that has
any school in San Francisco, both architecturally and effectively speak-
ing, frost-bitten. They advertise the swimming pools, the big new
gymnasium, the new courses, and on the lips of more than one I have
heard. "Believe me you're pretty lucky if you go to Stockton High."
Get it out of your head that you're living in a dead town, that the school
is spiritless, that the principal is no good, and the teachers are worse.
Forget it! A good cure for that feeling is for you to get away from home
for a year or so to see what other fellows have to contend with, see the
way they argue and beseach, a11d implore, and beg for spirit, see the
principals they have that growl and grumble eternally, the nineteen-
year-old teachers that don't know as much as the pupils, the lack of any
system, the absence of modern sanitation methods, the two, three and
four course schools where Stockton has at least six that I know of, and
probably more now, CARLTON.

Lazily he put one foot out of bed and into the pink bedroom slipper
that stood waiting patiently. There he paused to yawn broadly and
stretch his pink pajama sleeves before he put the other foot into its
atrocious covering. There was another pause as he sat on the edge of
the bed, while he ran his Fingers through his tumbled brown pompadour
and smiled reminiscently. Then he glanced at the window where the
noon sun uamed in, stood up, stretched all his weary muscles at length,
and lazily walked over to his circassion walnut chihfonier and surveyed
his handsome sleepy countenance in the mirror. The gray eyes that
blinked back at him were heavy and rather blood-shot and despite his
clear-cut people, his face had a suggestion of foppishness. For a
moment he peered at his reflection, then he grinned broadly.
"Some hot old man I" he said comprehensively as he touched the
bell to summon his valet.
At the same time he was the principal object of discussion amidst
a group of young people at luncheon across the street. ,'I think it's
perfectly awful l" declared a fair-haired maiden as she jabbed her fruit
salad with derision. "I can stand for a fellow having a good time, but
Grant oversteps the limit. Actually he has come home from the club
stewed every night for the last week. I think it's awful. So there!"
and she popped a Marescino cherry between her lips and snapped her
white teeth upon it as if it were the offending gentleman in question.
"And you boys needn't try to deny it just because he happens to be
another masculine creature," she added as a Parthian shot.
"Oh, come now, Sis, don't roast a fellow that way. And if it pleases
you any, I agree absolutely about Grant. Wl1z1t's the matter with him
is a surplus of this world's goods and a case of 'nothing to do 'till to-
morrow.' If I guess correctly, I'll guarantee that he is still slumbering
peacefully in his little downie, judging by how 'far he had progressed
when I left the club last night. Vlfanted me to weep with him over the
sad demise of his collar: it was 'rawther' wilted by that time." Fred,
he grinned broadly at the memory-a grin which grew to a laugh
reinforced by the two other fellows.
"Now ,Ralph, that's just exactly what makes Grant keep on. You
fellows laugh and think it's so terribly funny and cute-and then he
thinks so, too. I-"
"Oh, I say, Mac, hel-up! hel-up! Save the pieces !" broke in the tall
merry lad opposite her, between copious bites of a dainty sandwich,
"what could we do about it, anyway," he concluded rather lamely, for
they were all fond of pretty brown-eyed Clare and they all knew how
much she cared for Grant Carberry. It was also a.well-known fact that
she had refused to adorn her finger with a certain diamond ring for this
very reason. For a moment there was an awkward pause, then Anne
leaned forward, her blue eyes sparkling, "Kids, I have an idea!', she
1'Don't let it go off!" cautioned her brother, but she paid no atten-
tion and eagerly pushed back her yellow hair as the words fairly tumbled
from her lips. The others were slow to grasp her idea at lirst, and it
had to be repeated again and again. Then came the objections from
all sides. "I-Iis fatherf' began one of the boys.
"Now don't start that," cried Anne, "I happen to know that he's
worried to death about Grant, and I'll warrant he'd join right in," and
the sponsor of the idea leaned back in her chair and surveyed the group
excitedly. The boys glanced at each other uncertainly at first, then
smiles spread over their faces and-"VVhy, I believe it could be done!
Come on, let's see Mr. Carberry now," cried Ralph, and without much
ceremony the boys seized their caps and dashed off. They were
closeted with Mr. Carberry for a long time and when they finally
emerged the grins on their countenances could not have been much
s as wr 24 af 1: Pk ak
Sleepily, Grant put one foot out of bed and felt for his pink satin
bedroom slippers. Beastly headache-worse than ever before-he
ruminated as he absently moved his foot on the floor. Guess he had
taken more than even he could stand, but Ralph and Shorty had been
so very insistent that he took one more glass. Funny thing, too. They
usually tried o persuade him to go home and to bed after the Hrst of the
evening. I-Ie-joke! VV'hat did they-
Abruptly he sat up, and stared at the spot where his slippers were
wont to repose. He rubbed his eyes, tried to concentrate his mind, and
looked again. At one wide-awake glance he took in the simple iron
bed, bureau, and one chair that the small room boasted. "Some darned
practical joke!" he growled as he cleared the bed at one bound and
began to pound on the door.
"Say, whoever owns this place, kindly come here," and he violently
rattled the door-knob, but of no avail.
I-Ie sat down on the edge of the bed and tried to think. Clearly
something was wrong here. VVhere was the key to the situation? I-Ie
shook his head sadly. It was too much for him. I-Iis clothes neatly
folded, reposed on the one chair. The first step toward the solving of
this mystery was evidently getting them on-tough job! Shaking his
head again, he went to work, in silence, save for occasional grunts or
curses as he performed the unknown duty of putting on his collar. At
length he emerged triumphant, and proceeded to fasten the lavender
tie that matched so well with the stockings, carefully displayed above
the brown low shoes.
"Accomplished!,' he cried aloud to see if his voice sounded natural.
':Beg pardon, sir." said a smooth-faced placid youth as he opened
the door. Carberry turned. "VVhy the devil didn't you answer awhile
ago? Aretyou deaf? NVhat kind of a mix-up is this, any way? Who
the dickens are you? "
The youth regarded him wearily, "Breakfast is ready, King George
for is it Richard HD ?" he murmured as he turned on his heel and van-
Carberry sighed worriedly. It certainly was odd! It would be a
case of "never again" if he ever got out of this alive. Didn't like the
stuff anyhow. Only drank to be with the fellows, he mused. Still
frowning over his good resolutions, he walked out of the door into a
long hall, with a row of doors on either side. Grant heaved a relieved
sigh. He evidently was in a cheap boarding house. Some practical
joke, of course. He spied his odd visitor at the farther end of the hall
and hurried after him. He came out on a broad, sunny piazza, where a
number of men and women were sitting, reading, or merely staring off
across the long expanse of green lawn with its many shade trees. Grant
stood undecided for a moment. Then he approached a jolly looking
little man, seated a little apart from the others. "Can you tell me where
the dining room is, sir?" he accosted him.
The little man smiled and nodded and holding up his hand, showed
a ring set with a very large piece of glass. "Some diamond!" he re-
marked, jerkily. "Dazzle your eyes just like the sun." He made an
upward movement. "Put 'em on the blink, suref' Then with great
caution he looked about and then drew out of his pocket a watch fob,
closely set with paste diamonds, and flourished it about. "Ah! hurt
your eyes. Oh, you girls! You girls!" He shook his finger reprovingly
at Carberry and strutted off.
For a moment Grant stiid open-mouthed. "The old chump must
have been stringng me. XVhat kind of game is this, anyhow? Let's see
what the dame.with the big brown eyes has to say." He approached her
chair, hat in hand, and asked in his suavist tones Cusually very effectivej,
"I beg your pardon, but could you tell me the name of this place ?"
She looked up at him. Her big eyes seeming to gaze into his very
soul. "Yes, certainly. Very well. Of course. Naturally. WVhy, yes.
Yes, of course. Indeed," she remarked, conversationally.
Carberry sank weakly at the nearest chair, and rested his hot aching
head on his hands, hopelessly. 1
just at that moment a young man in a light suit sauntered up.
His face was absolutely pale and yellow, his hands were stained yellow
and from one corner of his mouth a cigarette hung limply. He laid his
hand familiarly on Grant's shoulder, and Carberry, the fastidious,
winced at seeing the nicotine stain it left on his coat. "VVhat's the
matter, old man? You look pretty hard hit. They all do, though, when
they first come, so cheer up l"
"I don't know what on earth you are talking about. Wfhat the devil
is this place, any how ?"
The man Hickered off the tip of his ash unconcernedly. "Do you
know enough to read, or are you one of the vicious variety?" he
answered, pointing to a large sign in the front of the building that
Carberry had not noticed before. It proclaimed in big, black letters,
"Sonner's Sanitoriumf' then in smaller type, but very large to Grant,
"Insanity and Dipsomania Treated Here."
For a moment, Carberry stood staring at the words motionless.
Then a sudden rage took possession of him and he turned and seized
the man by the collar. "I'll make some one stiffer for this-and you're
nearest. How dare you tell me to my face I'm an idiot?"
The two had clinched and were swaying backward and forward
when Carberry felt his arms pinioned behind him and a calm voice said,
"Enough of that. I really did not understand you were one of the
violent. No benefit and one hour close conhnement in your room for
"But I tell you I'm not crazy. Don't you know who I am? I am
the son of the Hon. Grant Greenlow T. Carberry. I-Ie'll make you
stiffer for this. Hee"
The marble face of his Captor did not alter in the least as he re-
marked composedly, "You were the son of julius Caesar last time,
weren't you Come on, now!" and Carberry was back in his room with
the key turned in the lock.
For the hrst few moments he amused himself by damaging the
furniture, but as everything was clamped to the Hoor and nothing was
breakable. the attempt was not a complete success. Then he started to
pace the fioor, hands thrust angrily into his pockets. Suddenly he real-
ized that his right hand gripped a piece of paper. He drew it out and
saw it bore his name in a well-known hand-writing. VVith an oath he
ripped open the envelope.
"Don't swear like that. Grant!" the letter began. it isn't becoming a
gentleman of your position." Despite his anger, a momentary smile
flitted over CarberrV's face, then disappeared as he read on and a rich
red flush took its place. "You are in a little out-of-the-way sanitorium
about thirty miles from town. VVe took you out in a machine, so drunk
that you knew nothing about it. Now. Grant. we put it up to you: Is
the game worth the candle? Look at the people around you. See what
beasts drink makes of men and decide, Yours,

For a moment he regarded the bit of paper in a stunned manner.
Ulf I could get mv hands on those fellows for just two minutes!" he
muttered. longingly, "I wouldn't merely kill them-I'd torture 'em first l"
Then with a sudden change, the humor of the situation struck him. He
put back his head and fairly shouted. I-Ie laughed until he was so weak
that he was forced to sit down on one corner of the bed. "Something
tells me there are going to be some more jokes around here soon," he
grinned to himself when he could get his breath.
I-Ie began his plan of action by seizing the door knob. But no
repeated rattlings would force it to give way. Kicking did not seem to
aid much. The windows were grated and repeated calls brought forth
no response. XVith a shrug of his shoulders he sat down in front of the
ancient mirror that divided his eyes from his pompadous by a huge crack
and began to consider. "They carried their joke a little too far. Had
no business to meddle in his affairs anyhow." Then slowly a Hush
spread to his hair and dved his neck. " beast. am I? A drunken sot!
Vtfait till I show them. VVait till-" Idfearilv he rolled over on the bed
and in two minutes was snoring like anv plebean and not in a manner
befitting the young scion of the house of Carberry.
It was several hours later when he was awakened by his cheerful
jailer by the impartial remark, "You look pretty sane this morning.
Guess you're one of the intermittent kind. Tippy one day and sane the
"Sane! Of course I'm sane. Look here," pleaded Carberry, "I'm
here on account of a practical joke. -It's all a mistake. I've got to find
somebody to explain affairs to. Wo11't you believe me ?"
"Uh-huh !" nodded the other, vacantly scanning the ceiling.
Carberry began to put his brain to work. It was quite a problem
he had before him-and he found the sharpening of his wits rather
pleasant. How could he, Grant Carberry, convince that apparently un-
convinceable individual in the ill-fitting gray suit, and with such a
placid, unruffled countenance, that he was in his right mind? I-Ie began
to proceed carefully.
"Look here," he said, "you know I haven't had a chance to get any
pen or ink and I don't carry a fountain pen, so this must be genuine.
This will explain the whole situation, I think," and he thrust the note
that the boys had placed in his pocket, under the indifferent nose of his
jailer. The other took it calmly, read it through twice, looked at Grant,
read it again and then suddenly smiled. "I guess you are all right," he
Grant stifled an indication to shout for joy and continued in the
same even tone, "Now, I want to pay those fellows back. Wfill you help
me? My plan is this: to throw a scare into them, you copy a note
which I will write, saying that you have found me very violent and
have committed me to the State asylum for life. See? The fellows
will be kind of worried when they get the note and pike out here at the
rate of one hundred miles per hour, and in the meantime, I will quietly
sneak, so as not to be here when they arrive. IfVhat do you think ?"
The other looked rather dubious for a moment.
"lf'll tell you," he said, finally. "You tell a pretty straight story,
but you may be merely trying to bolt. I'll tell you what we'll do.
VVe'll consult the superintendent. If these boys you speak of did put
you in here, the superintendent would know all about it."
And he did. Moreover he proved to be a jolly individual with a
keen sense of humor. who entered in heartily with Carberry's plans.
The letter was Finished in due legal form and dispatched by special
messenger to town. VVhen dusk fell, Carberry noiselessly departed,
tramped two weary miles and caught the train for home.
Some three hours later two disheveled, worried lads, wearied from
their long trip and unsatisfactory interview with the superintendent.

Many, many years ago,
Sailing up the sea-coast slow,
Came an English man-o'-warsnian,
"Golden Hind' was on her bow.
Peering through the heavy mist,
On the land the ocean kissed,
Francis Drake passed by a treasure
Greater than the Spaniards missed.
Searching soon. but not for gold,
Came a band of soldiers bold,
lVand'ring through a sunny valley,
Heard a tale the Indians told,
Of a wondrous inland sea
XVhere two sentinels would be
Standing guard above thee ntranee,
Overlooking the South Sea.
Then the Spanish captain, brave
Portola, his orders gave
For his little band of soldiers
To push on to Neptune's cave.
Thus it happened on a morn,
That they heard old Triton's horn
As they paused upon a hillerest,
Ragged, tired, bramble-torn.
Then a shout of joy was heard,
Frightening the weird sea-birds
That returned to dip and circle
'XVVhen the sun sank in the west,
Their good patron Saint they blessed,
Kind Saint Francis, who had brought them
Through their travels, safe to rest.
There a settlement they laid,
NVhere, by use of plow and spade,
All the wild and wooded country
lVas into a garden made.
Though three centuries have passed by
Since the sun set in that sky,
Still unchanged he shines as brightly
From his radiant throne on high.
F 0 rty-two
YVhat a change now greets his sight
As he sheds his yelolw light
Over queenly San Francisco!
City of a World's delight.
Can the Spanish captain dream?
Can he catch the faintest gleam
Of his little city's wonders?
Can he see 1915?

The great ship speeded on
Beneath the myriad stars,
And the fog bells rang, while the women sang
And the men smoked their cigars.
The pilot with straining eyes
Peerecl through the fog and gloom,
But t'was not the mist, nor the iceberg's list
That struck them to their doom.
But from the perilous deep
Came a venomous beast of the sea,
And its deathly sting made the echoes ring,
Wfliile men cried fearfully.
And the ship filled with the sea,
And sank beneath the deepg
And the sailor lad, as he worked like mad,
Heard the fainting widow weep.
The life boats were tossed on the waves,
And the bodies were cast on the shoreg
And under the deep, in a frightful heap,
Lies the ship for evermore.

Greater Svtnrktnn laugh E-Evrhnnl
The year 1913 naturally marks the beginning of the Greater Stock-
ton High School. It was in 1913 that the bond campaign was made,
the election carried by the large vote of tive to one, and the work of
construction begun on the group of three new buildings of the larger
and greater high school. In addition to the work of the bond campaign
and the planning and equipping of the new buildings, many other im-
portant constructive measures have been effected during the past three
years. The course has been reorganized on a Efteen unit basis with
major and minor subjects, greater choice being given not only through
the selection of majors and minors but also through electives, repre-
senting one-third of the course. The purely elective system 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 classified and recatalogued under
the American Library Association plan. Steel lockers have been pur-
chased: additional pictures have been provided through an art exhibitg
the debating society has been rehabilitated: a lyceum course has been
introduced: three vice principals, an advisor for girls, an ofnce assistant
and a librarian have been appointedg the departments of industrial arts,
household economics, and physical training have been inauguratedg
sanitary towels and drinking fountains have been introducedg provision
has been made for holding all social functions at the school, classes in
public speaking, applied chemistry and biology have been organized,
the school has been organized under the advisory systemg the Guard
and Tackle has been changed from a monthly magazine to a weekly
paperg a turf field and cinder path have been constructed: a swimming
tank has been built and the construction of the cafeteria begun.
Equipment-Present and Future
Aside from the usual class-room equipment in English, Latin, Ger-
man. history and mathematics, the school has the following departments
more or less fully equipped: commercial, drawing, music, physics,
chemistry, biology, agriculture, cooking, sewing, physical training, and
woodworking. The commercial department is well organized, offering
two or four year courses, being well equipped in bookkeeping as well
as stenography and typewriting. A new course in advertising and sales-
manship will be introduced next year.
The art department now offers a two-year course including free-
hand drawing and advanced freehand drawing and design. Some work
has been done in applied design in leather and metal which will lead to
a fully organized art and crafts course as soon as there is a demand for
it. ln addition to the two classes in vocal music and one in orchestra
and band, a class in music has been conducted which has made excellent
use of the large graphophone in its study of musical compositions.
Four hundred copies of an excellent high school song book have been
purchased for the general chorus singing. A strong effort is being made
in all subjects to have them correlated closely with the everyday affairs
of life. To this end, applied courses in chemistry for boys and also for
girls were introduced this year and a similar course will be given next
year if there is a demand for it.
The equipment of the physical training department surpasses any-
thing in the state. The 2525.000 gymnasium with its shower and dressing
rooms, lockers and bleachers, the 60x20 cement swimming tank, the
new S350 turf held and the cinder track constitute an equipment of
which every student is justly proud. Additional steel lockers will be
purchased and additional gymnasium apparatus will be installed. It is
planned to construct several out-door courts for tennis, basket ball and
The equipment of the cooking and sewing departments will be
enlarged for next year, advanced courses being offered in both, inclusive
of a course in millinery. In time, a fully organized course in the several
branches of the household arts and sciences will be given, including
nursing and laundry.
Vocational emphasis will be placed upon these courses in household
economics and also in the industrial arts. The course next year will
include elementary bench work, cabinet making, pattern making, wood
turning or lathe work, shop drawing and probably shop mathematics.
To these will be added in the near future courses in machine shop.
forge and other courses in metal.
The new library room with its sectional cases and tables in charge
of a trained librarian have given the students a much wider use of the
books. A large number of accessions will be received in September.
The large and up-to-date cafeteria is now being constructed, the
new bicycle shed and the sanitary lavatories which have been orderedg
the additional book lockers, bringing the number up to four hundred
will give a general school equipment which will greatly increase the
efficiency of the school.
The school endeavors to have each student select his course and the
subjects in the course with a distinct vocational purpose. The student
is urged to prepare for some specific life work. To this end the principal
discusses these questions with the grammar school graduates and asks
the students to indicate their intentions as to occupation, The advisors
in school counsel with pupils as to their course, keep account of delin-
quents in scholarship and attendance, make changes, in program and
seek to guide them in their life purposes and plans.
Night School-junior College
The school plans to organize a Night School and a Junior College
as soon as there is a demand for them and funds to provide for them.
To ascertain this, it is planned to have an expression of opinion as to
the people's desire through the press and to offer courses to meet the
public demand. The Night School will give an opportunity for study to
those who are compelled to seek gainful employment during the working
hours of the day. The junior College will enable ambitious students to
secure two years of college or university credit at home, thereby influ-
encing many to continue their higher education.
Wlieii all of these plans have been consummated, the greater
Stockton High School will be fully realized.

The Executive Committee is probably the most important
student organization in the school at the present time. It consists
of the president, Cyrus Hickinbotham, vice president, june Young,
secretary-treasurer, Herbert Vfaiteg auditor and faculty represen-
tative, Mr. VV. F. Ellis Jr., and custodian, MacKay McKenzie.
The class representatives are: Senior-Arthur Clay and Charles
Conifortg junior-Rex Parker and Burchard Higby, Sophomore-
Leland Hickinbothamg and Freshman-Virginia Thompson.
The Executive Committee has charge of all financial matters
of the student body, the control of class functions, the purchasing
of material for athletics, appointment of managers for the various
teams, the awarding of the Block "S," and in fact, everything
pertaining to the athletic and financial sides of high school life.
Every member of the committee has done excellent service
for Stockton High. The president, Cyrus Hickinbotham, has con-
ducted the meetings in an orderly, business-like manner, and has
shown great judgment in guiding this important body. june
Young. as vice president, has filled her position with great
efficiency. Due to the excellent management of Herbert VVaite,
secretary-treasurer, the finances of the Student Body are in a good
condition at the present time, which is more than can be said for
some past years. Mr. Ellis, as auditor and faculty representative,
has made his presence very useful and of a decided advantage to
the interests of the school. MacKay McKenzie has filled the ohfice
of custodian in an entirely satisfactory way, while the various
class representatives have cared for the interests of their own
classes and of the whole school, and attended meetings in a way
that justifies their election to membership in this vital student-
The expense of bringing visiting teams here is another thing
which the Executive Committee must account for, and the fact
that the treasury is in a good condition speaks Well for the ability
of the committee's members, and that of the secretary-treasurer in
particular. The committee also has the power to appoint delegates
to the various athletic leagues, another expense which must be
accounted for. Stockton High has been ably represented at every
meeting of the California Interscholastic Federation by Mr. Louis,
appointed by the Executive Committee.
The work of the Executive Committee is no light matter, for
to handle the finances and athletics of a school the size of Stockton
High requires the earnestness and ability of every member con-
cerned, although the committee is not before the students as often
as many of the other organizations, the benefits which the school
has received from its work are fully as numerous, if not more so.
Some of the most important acts of the committee during the
past year have been. the purchasing of new outfits-suits and
material-for the basket ball and football teams, new material for
the baseball team, regulation of all athletics, the restriction of the
purchasing of class pennants, the aid it has given to the turf field,
and last, the success which all student functions have attained
under its supervision. The Associated Students of Stockton High
may well congratulate themselves upon the students they have
chosen to represent them-for the work of the Executive Com-
mittee has been the means of advancing the condition of Stockton
High School a hundred-fold.
STUDENT CONTROL COM MITTEE
Svtuhrnt Glnntrnl Qlnmmittrv
By an amendment to the Constitution of the-Associated Student
Body of Stockton High School, a new plan was created at the end of
last year, whereby the president and vice president of the Student Body
were empowered to appoint four boys and four girls from among the
students at large to serve upon the Student Control Committee. It
devolved upon Cyrus Hickinbothain and june Young to inaugurate
this new system, and from present results, they have fulfilled their
mission admirably. The four members of the boys' Student Control
Committee are Elmer Kohle, Elbert Parks, Willaert Cowell and Harold
Wfebber, while the girls' committee consists of Geraldine Parker,
Georgia Pound, Verne Swain and Katherine Kerrick.
The Student Control Committee is the "court" of the high school,
and all cases of any misconduct are thus under the jurisdiction of the
students themselves, rather than that of the office. The committee this
year has shown more activity than for many years previous, and with
good results. The attendance at rallies and lectures has increased notice-
ably since the committee has investigated the matter of 'tcuttingn these
periods, and those guilty have received a fitting punishment. Running
up and down the stairs, and in the halls, and all "rough-housing" are
also cases which have come under the observation of the committee.
Too much praise cannot be given to the two presidents, Cyrus
T-Iickinbotham and june Young, who have so successfully carried out
this very important amendment. The various members, too, deserve
their share of praise for making the Student Control Committee for this
year one of the most efhcient organizations in the history of the high
During the year there have been several attempts made to criticize
the Student Control Committee, but in spite of this fact, it is well rec-
ognized that the committee this year has served its mission better than
many other previous committees. and in spite of all objections and
criticisms, these fault-finders cannot but realize the- value of student
government as demonstrated by the present officers and members. It
is natural that the girls should not have as many cases as the boys, but
these cases which have come before them, have been handled in a
thoroughly business-like and capable manner. The boys' committee
has been kept busy with the cases of "ditching" assemblies and rallies,
undue "haste" in the halls, an occasional would-be fist right, and such
matters which boys cannot learn do not belong in an institution of learn-
ing. On the whole, however, a general improvement in conduct is being
noticed which cannot but be the effect of a competent Student Control

The Big "S" Society is composed of every athlete in Stockton High
School who has won his "S"--whether it be in track, baseball, football,
or basket ball. Last year the Executive Committee raised the standard
of the awarding of the "SH to such a high degree, that it is a great
honor to belong to the Big "S" Society. The aim of the members Who
compose the society is to further athletics in the school, and to support
them in every way possible, but the most important work is the annual
vaudeville show which is given under its auspices.
The Big "S" show was given this year by the society to raise funds
to aid in procuring a new turf held for Stockton High, and was surely
a success in every imaginable way. Financially, it could hardly have
been better, for over three hundred dollars were cleared for the benefit
of the field-over and above expenses, The members of the society
elected Herbert W'aite, who is also president, as the manager of this
year's show, and his election was certainly justihed by the able way in
which he guided matters, and the excellent results of the performance.
Aside from the financial success, it is almost unanimously agreed that
the performance itself by far exceeded any previous one ever given in
The Big "S" Society was founded in 1912 by Carl Ortman and
Stanley Arndt, two of Stockton's former athletes, and has continued so
successfully ever since that it promises to be one of the permanent
organizations of the school, and one of the most successful. Its officers
for this year are: Herbert Waite, president, Harry Mazzera, vice presi-
dentg Elmer Kohle, secretary-treasurerg while the members are: Mac-
Kay McKenzie, Charles VVhitney, Iral Dennis, Charles Comfort, Carroll
Grunsky, Cyrus Hickinbotham, Byron Laveaga, Leland Hickinbotham,

Debating is one of the chief interests in nearly every high school,
but for some unknown reason, the students and members have not
responded well this year and consequently the work of the S H. S.
Debating Society has been rather limited. One of the hrst acts of the
society, early last fall, was to vote unanimously to withdraw from the
Debating League of California. Stockton High's admission to this
league had been received with pride by the members of the society. and
by many interested non-members, so this withdrawal was the first blow
to its continuation and progress. Interest has gradually lessened until
matters are practically at a standstill in regard to the Debating Society.
There are a few members, however, who still retain their interest
and have striven hard to reawaken interest, and who have done a good
share in that hard work. They are the officers: Harry Mazzara, presi-
dentg Josephine Wfilliams, vice president, Scott Hyde, secretary-
treasurer, and Milton Kingsbury, sergeant-at-arms. Then such debating
enthusiasts as Lester Gnekow, George Buck, Donald McDiarmid and
John Gallagher have striven to retain the glory of the debating club,
VVhat's the matter with Stockton High? It's just about time some
of her lazy students were waking up to the importance, benefits and
pleasures of debating, and were showing a little more interest in one of
her most important organizations. Everyone ought to make an effort
to make next year a decided contrast to this one, and encourage the
Debating Society to a place in the ranks of the foremost high school
debating societies in the state.
'VVhat would we do without our famous high school band? That is
an impossible question to answer, for the band is one of the chief sup-
ports of "spirit" and,"pep" at all the games and meets of the school.
-lust imagine going to a basket ball game, finding a big crowd of oppos-
ing rooters on hand, and then not having the band right there to drown
their yells. Impossible! At nearly every game during the basket ball
season, and at several during the football season the band made an
appearance and was the means of creating more spirit at these games
than any other factor.
The whole school owes a vote of thanks to the leader, George San-
derson, who has so patiently and successfully labored to make the band
worthy of Stockton High. He has been the means of keeping it together,
of procuring new music, and of making it possible for the band to appear
at all games. and even some of the social functions of the year-the
"jolly-Up," for example. The band turned out in full force upon that
occasion, and it was due to their playing that a great part of the success
of the evening was so evident. No one could keep out of line in the
grand march-the music was too tempting-and when later the band
started the then famous "By the Beautiful Sea" not one person could
resist its lively strains.
This year's members are: George Sanderson, the leaderg Paul
Mitchell, Phil Horstmeyer, Ray Dunne, George Garland, Percy Ahern,
Rex Parker, Louis Burke, Ralph Herring. Justus Kirkman. John .lack-
son. Helmer Curtis, Theodore McMurray, Herbert Hunt. Paul Leipelt,
lerome Levy, Joseph Musto, Frank Viera, and Howard O'Dell.

Can the years ever be so long, or life so full, that you will forget
the day when the half-unnoticed gong for the First time held a meaning
because it called to you? Is it possible to erase from your memorv that
joyous "seven times one is seven" feeling? XfVe think not, and it was
just such a feeling of awed eagerness that a youngster knows when the
school portals first open to him that we experienced when ushered into
vine-clad Stockton High School.
We were quite a remarkable class-infant prodigies you might say-
and from the outse twe exhibited an unusual amount of sagacity and
discretion, as was shown in our selection of class ofhcers. Wfith "Cy"
Hickinbotham as president, .Tune Young as vice-president, Louie Bald-
win, secretary, and Ila Tretheway on the Student Control, we passed a
most successful year, devoted to fitting ourselves into our proper
gfooves, and showing the other students what real "fresh" men were
In our Sophomore year we gained an added dignity, which might
have been due to the fact that long trousers and lengthened dresses had
appeared in our midst. Wie learned to use the latest slang expressions,
and could talk about Hcramming for exes," "riding ponies" and "ditching
assemblies," with a nonchalant air which must have impressed the
Freshmen, especially the poor little "subs" who entered in February.
lfVe again showed our good judgment, when, after a hotly contested
election, w echose Charles Vifhitney, president: Geraldine Parker, vice-
president, and Harriet Post, Student Control.
And then came our junior year. The class of 113 had left entrusting
to the classes of '14 and '15, the guardianship of the honor and dignity
of their Alma Mater. Two years had worked wonders. The irrespon-
sible, all-too-learned Sophs of the year before, no longer galloped
through Latin swamps on ponies, or made the lives of the Freshmen
an unspeakable burden.
The lethargy of the Freshmen, the vanity of the Sophs, as it by
magic became the earnestness and matter-of-factness of the Juniors.
This was a year when we put in our best work and made the days count.
Wfhat a rousing election we held in the Student Hall that September
clay! The light was a close one, which resulted in Herbert 'XN7aite's
being elected president, Doris Patton vice-president, Grace Harper
secretary, june Young and Buteau Lundy Student Control.
And we worked-worked like the proverbial Trojans. Aur records
bear me out. But you know the tragedy of all work and no play. And
let it never be said that we juniors were dull. NVasn't it the class of '15
that kept literally pinching the rest of the school to keep it awake?
Remember our dance in the school hall? A success? I should
say it was! And the junior luncheon with its clever toasts? Then the
Junior dance at the Philomathean club house. Best time I ever had in
my life, and everyone voted it a magnificent success.
School work and society, much as we indulged in both of them.
could not make us forget the other boys and girls who were less for-
tunate than we, so charity and kindness became part of our life. Many
homes were brightened by the radiance of our good fellowship and many
a little inmate of the Children's Home will hold sweet the memory of
the '15 girls. Proud of our accomplishments, though possibly they were
not all that we would have wished, we left our junior year with the
happy light of the Senior year dawning.
From the chrysalis of the Freshman, Sophomore and junior, the
Senior class at last emerged like a brilliant moth to dry its wings in the
flame of the lamp that burns the midnight oil. Of course, this last year
has been the happiest and most successful of all. But then, why
shouldn't it be? lVith the eautifully equipped new building, the new
teachers and courses to give an impetus to study, surely the veriest
clullard could do well.
During the year 1914-15 many innovations, which had long been
only dim specks on the horizon of our hopes, became realities. The
Guard and Tackle from a monthly paper which seldom appeared on
time, became a weekly which came out promptly every Monday morn-
ing, with the news of the previous week interestingly presented.
..The turf leld, for which our class orators have so long pleaded, has
finally been brought into existence and at the time of this writing the
grass is just beginning to assert itself and crowd out the weeds. The
music hours, which everyone enjoyed so much, the dances in the gym,
and the Senior picnic were all introduced for the first time this year
under the sponsorship of the "Exposition" class and we take great
credit to ourselves for so doing.,
So now that the time has come when we must leave our dear
school, we can do so with a feeling of having done our duty and done it
well: and though we depart in sadness, we can still be glad that we have
a school which is better for our having been here.

I awakened one sunny morning in the year 1925, yawned and
turned over preparatory for another nap. lVhen I heard an excited
ringing of the 'phone. I jerked the receiver off and growled an irritable
salutation. The joyful voice of Lucile I-loyt greeted me with, f'Say,
we're the luckiest mortals on earth! I-Iow in the world did we do it,
etc?" WVhen by some streak of luck I managed to find a pause long
enough to respectfully insuire why we were such lucky mortals and
what we had done, Lucile told me that she and I had won in a contest
and we were to tour the United States in anelectric aeroplane. An
aeroplane! I sank weakly into a chair and confidentially informed
myself what I thought of the whole proposition. lfVhy did I ever
compete? NVhat fiend ever thought of an aeroplane as the method of
locomotion? And lastly, why, oh, why did I win?
Nevertheless a week later found Lucile and I seated in an aeroplane
which we discovered to our great surprise had been one of the produc-
tion of the famous manufacturers, Baldwin K Co. Louis himself was
there to see us start. Wfe asked him if he had heard of any of our old
friends and he told us that XValter Vincent was doing wonderful things
with his inventions, also that Ludwig Reimers had won the world's
record for aeroplane racing and was using one of Louis' own models.
Irene Vignolo and Gladys Kerr were standing close by to get in a word
before we started. Both were as good friends as ever, but sad to say,
old maids, but still had prospects.
After a last look at the engine the mechanic, who was none other
than our brilliant student, Roger Hardacre, dusted his hands, pulled
down his grimy cap and announced that he was ready. Ready for what?
I wearily asked myself And to all our well-meaning friends who gave
us a handshake preparatory to the usual gush, we tendered a benignant
smile, while deep down in our hearts we fervently cursed that person,
all contests. the aeroplane and in our most wildly desperate moments,
the United States!
Then amid great shouts the machine rose into the air and Lucile
and I gave the dear familiar earth one agonized glance and reconciled
ourselves to our fate.
Wfe were to travel first to New York City from our starting point
of Buffalo. For the first day we journeyed slowly and not at a great
height. As we were Hying over a typical country town in central New
York I happened to glance down and saw walking along the main street
a person with a most peculiar method of locomotion. I-Iis feet seemed
to have had a permanent disagreement with each other and he wound
from one side of the sidewalk to the other in a most startling manner.
Lucile and I became so interested that we told Roger to alight once
more to Mother Earth, so that we could view closer the queer specimen
of humanity. As we reached him he was just completing a most mar-
velous circle on the sidewalk. The more we looked at- him the more
familiar he became, so finally I walked up to him and said, "My good
man, what in the world are you trying to do ?', but "my good man" was
so engrossed in his diverting labor that he didn't even look up. A
village lounger took it upon himself to enlighten me. "I-Ie is the village
curiosity, ma'am. I-Iis name'e Dean I-Iolt and he thinks he's a cater-
pillar." To say we were astonished is putting it gently. I tried to stop
my old schoolmate and shake hands with him, but he pushed aside my
friendly advances with a scornful hand and gave me not even a glance
as I departed.
Lucile and I were becoming a trifle bored with each other when
our waning interest was suddenly given a new impetus by the sight of
an approaching aeroplane. As it neared we recognized the two greatest
"movie" actresses of the age, Bessie Markheim and Violet Hamilton,
and with them was handsome Charles Comfort, the craze of the movie
fans. They recognized us at the same time and both aeroplanes stopped
at a nearby aeroplane station. After effective greetings they told us of
some of our old friends of '15. De W'itt Colestock was the manager of
one of the leading "jitney" concerns of the United States and had hun-
dreds of men in his employ. Bee Davis, so they said, drove a "jitney"
in New York and the way she dodged among the traffic was a marvel
IVe parted reluctantly and that evening arrived in New York City.
In front of the Metropolitan Opera House was an immense electric sign
with the words "Doris Knight," leading lady in Macbeth. VVe decided
to interview the prima-donna of our Senior play and sent our cards to
her dressing room. The door was opened by a trim looking little maid
whom we discovered to be Mabel Anderson. Mabel said that she was
afraid our visit was fruitless as Miss Knight's time was fully occupied.
She went on to say that we would be interested in hearing that Grace
Harper was the coming dancer of the age and with the help of her
graceful partner, Edward Silva, she held thousands enthralled. Ae we
were leaving the theatre we almost collided with the irate manager,
Steve XVaite. He was purple with rage "over the fool tricks of that
stage prop., George XVestphal." lVe calmed him down a bit and by the
time we left he was almost jovial.
lfVe went to our hotel where a blase, self-satisfied clerk pushed the
register towards us with a scornful gesture, gazing meanwhile, about
one inch above our heads. Lucile looked intently at him and said,
"VV'ell, Aubrey, you needn't be so uppish about it." For once in my life
I saw a hotel clerk jolted out of his superior calm. He was surprised
into giving us good rooms. The bell-boy came up then and I stopped
short in astonishment when I saw it was Oscar Ames. I-Ie looked
perfectly stunning in a bright red suit with a large family of gold
buttons on it.
The next morning we went to Coney Island and the very first
person we saw was Scott Hyde. He was standing on a platform,
beating the air with his arms, a habit acquired as yell-leader, and vio-
lently extolling the merits of a certain unbelievably beautiful Queen of
the Amazons. After a few moments' conversation, Scott, thinking we
might be interested, informed us that the Queen of the Amazons was
none other than Georgia Pound!
XVe left Scott's attraction and continued our sightseeing expedition.
In about an hour we met a small person who was in eminent danger
of being led astray by a huge bunch of balloons. VVe were wondering
where we'd seen him before when a great white light broke in on Lucile
and she dashed toward him saying, "XVell, as I live, Leo Todresic. Leo
told us that if we wished to hear some good music to go into a nearby
show and hear the 'KSeven Songbirdsl'-otherwise, Hazel Ramsey,
Margaret Ramsey, Tille Prahser, Mary Brown, Minda Kettler, Mar-
guerite Daniels and Ethel Garrow, under the management of George
just about that time we decided we were tired and returned to our
New York hotel. The next morning we started once more on our
iourney. Wfe arrived in Wasliingtoii that evening and Lucile and I
went for a walk in the VVhite House grounds. A tall ngure approached,
stopped and started forward with a cry of recognition and we found
ourselves shaking hands excitedly with Cyrus Hickinbotham. He told
us he had just returned with his charming wife, Bethel, from his em-
bassy in Switzerland and that on his homeward trip he met Gladvs Fox
who was just returning from Africa where she had just been sent as a
missionary. VVith the old twinkle in her eyes Gladys said that she had
had quite enough of missionary labor and had decided to go back to
,California and get married. Cy asked us to attend the Senate the next
day and so next morning we found ourselves in the great Senate chamber
of the Wfhite House. There we met a pompous person whom we
recognized as Lester Gnekow, and we could not help being a little awed
to be in the presence of the great Secretary of XfVar. I-Ie pointed out
Harold Comfort and told us that he was Senator from California.
We found the session very interesting, and after its adjournment
returned to our hotel. There was an invitation to a tea awaiting us from
one of the VVashington society belles, june Young, Wfe attended the
tea, more to see june Young than anything else. VVe asked her if she
had seen any of our old friends and she answered that Alpha Bonney
was attracting much attention in Wfashington society with her sweet
voice. She asked us if weid seen Constance Hall, the Wfhite House
stenographer, and we were disappointed when we discovered that we
had missed her, but it was necessary to leave the next day.
Once Again we found ourselves seated in the aeroplane. XNe were
beginning to feel ourselves seasoned aeronauts and enjoyed the moving
panorama till we arrived in Annapolis to visit the Naval Academy in
which Roger was interested. lfVe were resting in the lobby of our
hotel when Roger came in proudly leading two handsome young cadets.
Leland Beecher and Woodrow Coale. Lucile became instantly en-
amored and wanted to stay there a week, but Roger and I overruled
her and a week later found us at a famous winter resort in Florida. In
front of a little inn, not far from the great hotel, we saw a large luxurious
touring car. At the wheel was the chauffeur and by his side chattering
away vivaciously was, we presumed, the owner of the machine. VVe
were just about to pass by the car when the chauffeur gave a leap.
tooted his siren and cried, 'fMinnie, as I live! and Lucile! and Roger!"
When we turned around, astonished, we discovered that the exuberant
person was Bill junker and the lady by his side Josephine VVilliams.
We were overjoyed at the meeting and accepted with alacrity the
invitation to take a little spin.
We were passing a cosy looking little bungalow when Bill whis-
pered awsomely that in it the greatest pianist of the age was spending
his winter. VVhen I asked the gnius, he answered, "Mme Dustine.
otherwise Freda Dustinlu VVe took it upon ourselves to visit this
illustrious person and were admitted by a girl Cshe was still a girlj with
dimples, curly hair and an auspicious looking twinkle in her eye. She
led us into an exquisite little living room and there reclining luxuriously
on a couch was Freda. After weeping tears of joy on each others
shoulders, Freda called the curly haired young person over and said.
"VVell, Minne, you have a marvelous memory-don't even remember
Doris Patton!" Doris' eyes twinkled more merrily than before when
she took our outstretched hands and told us that there was yet another
surprise for us. She deported into some mysterious region and returned
with Mary Abbott. Seeing Mary we naturally inquired for Eleanor
and learned that she Clileanorj, accompanied by Olive Burton, was
taking a pleasure trip through Europe and was not expected home for
at least a year. 'vVe certainly were sorry to leave such a congenial
crowd, but as all good things must have an end, the next day found us
on our way to Texas.
As we were flying over the rolling prairies, Roger suddenly decided
he wanted to alight and before we knew what we were about, there we
were on good old Mother Earth before a rambeling old ranch house.
As we were carefully stepping out of the machine we heard a loud grunt
and saw a strange looking person attired in a large blue gingham apron
and a sunbonnet sit down most effectively in a mud puddle. This queer
apparition stood up, picked up a butterfly net from where it had fallen
and went blithely speeding along the prairie for a strange insect. At
this moment three women came tearing out of the house with milk pails
and made a bee-line for the shed, Roger stood in front of them and
waved his arms wildly for about a minute before they stopped. And
when they slackened up sufficiently for us to see what they looked like
we discovered that the three merry milkmaids were Amalia Fischbacher,
Bertha Fischbacher and Adeline Guissi. They took us into the house
and gave us some much needed nourishment, meanwhile telling us that
Zaida Dolan, the "boss," was out hunting bugs.
As suddenly as Roger decided he wanted to alight, he decided he
wanted to start again and an hour later found us far away from the
For two days we flew aimlessly along, stopping at any place that
looked interesting, but despite the latter, becoming undeniably bored.
Towards evening of the second day we alighted at a gaily bedecked
town in Arizona. Posted on every available surface were great circus
placards and we could see the tops of the huge white tents long before
we reached the spot. Of course Lucile and Roger were delighted at the
prospect of a circus, so after engaging rooms at a hotel we went to the
grounds. In front of the largest tent paraded two pompous looking
persons whom we recognized instantly as Leland Smith and Harvey
Smith. They proudly told us that "they owned the greatest show on
earth" and gave us each a pass. First we visited the wild animals,
slighting none, and after an enchanting hour of peanut feeding and
joyous thrills we found ourselves in the main tent. There were two
startling looking objects in red tights who were getting the best of a
horizontal bar. Roger gazed at them so intently that Lucile and I were
beginning to get suspicious, when he shouted, f'l3y all that's holy,
Florence Nims and Ethel Nicholasli' Florence Nims and Ethel Nicholas
in a circus! Wie were shaking our heads over this curious prank of Fate
when Lucile shouted, "Look!" Virginia Morris, leading the band and
,Toe Deluchi in black and yellow tights riding that wild-looking steedll'
VVe decided that we didn't want to see the circus after all and were just
leaving when we bumped into Mr. and Mrs. Earle McPeake, nee Maude
Sleeth. Earle airily informed us that he was doing most wonderfully
well and owned everything in the town but the river.
Wfe staggered back to our hotel, thinking that after a night's sleep
we might feel better. The next morning we found that during the night
the circus had "folded away its tents and silently stolen away." but that
this day had an attraction in the form of a baseball game, between the
Giants and the Busher League. We were willing to try anything and
really found the game quite thrilling. Kay McKenzie was there with
some of his wonderful curves and Roger grew almost hysterical with
joy at any especially brilliant ball. We discovered Lois lN'enger and
Leah Nyland in the audience. They were intensely interested and one
could tell they were used to baseball by the voluble m.anner in which
they told the umpire the several things that ailed him. Vife met Lois
and Leah they were leaving the park. They were both wearing
marvelous creations and at our admiring gaze they said that their
gowns were designed by the greatest fashion-makers in the United
States, Harriet Post and Irene Blair.
We left early the next morning and before night we were at a
hotel in the wonderful Colorado Canyon. VVe saw a tall lanky person
and a short bulky person ascending a perfectly perpendicular rock in a
manner peculiar to monkeys. VVe hailed them loudly and in as many
languages as we knew but they-evidently were not aware of our
existence. lfVe were becoming quite heated when from around the
corner emerged a blushing young person whom we instantly knew as
Ruby Gerlach. She told us that she was on her wedding tour and was
having the time of her life. Following our puzzled glances she informed
us that the two business-like persons were John Gallagher and Merle
Graham, leading geologists of the day.
Next we arrived at Reno, after a long and swift journey through
the air. Wfe were all anxious to see the place having heard so much
about it and expected to see matrimonial difficulties as soon as we
reached the main street. nd sure enough we did, for the first person
we met was Ruth lfVarner. She was very pale and sorrowful looking
but cheered up immensely when she recognized us. Nothing would do
except that she must tell her troubles, how cruel her husband had treated
her and now she was very free. She asked us if we remembered
Haidee Pool, and of course we did. She proceeded to tell us that Haidee
was now one of the leading "Lawyeresses" of Reno and was especially
prominent in divorce cases. Vlfe were anxious to see Haidee but next
day we were to make a speedy trip to San Francisco and we were all so
anxious to get into California that nothing could persuade us to stay
longer at Reno.
Next morning our joy knew no bounds when we finally found our-
selves on the way to dear old San Francisco. We made the trip in two
hours and what a sight greeted our eyes as we crossed the Golden Gate.
Surely this city was not San Francisco! Roger guided the 'plane toward
the heart of the city and we looked down. Elevated railways met our
gaze-there an airship whizzed past-the streets were thronged, the
Ferry building was five times larger. We decided to land at a good
place not far from the Ferry. We looked in astonishment up Market
street. The elevated and subways had taken the place of common street
cars and aeroplanes were fast crowding out the ferry boats. VVe had
heard of the growth of San Francisco as the effect of the Fair in 1915
and that it even excelled New York, but we realized it was true. Roger
suggested that we ride over the city so we did. The buildings were so
tall that our machine could hardly go over them. At one of the tallest,
we stopped, attached the plane to the fire escape and crawled through
the window finding ourselves in an artist's studio. There stood Arthur
Clay with six beautiful gowned maidens. They were stunned by our
sudden appearance but Arthur managed to speak and told us that he
was now quite a famous artist and these were his models. He intro-
duced us to six of our friends, May Yelland, Augusta Deil, Edna Perkins,
Henrietta Blohrne, Elice Buol and Lottie Boyd. Arthur was now doing
a beautiful painting called "The Mermaidsf' in which were the six girls.
Art told us some more startling news-that he had heard recently from
Milton Kingsbury who was a famous detective-"seldom seezit" and
Alberta VVilkes was his chief assistant.
At that moment Lucile happened to glance in the direction of our
aeroplane but all she saw was that object floating away in the distance.
Great excitement followed and after quite a chase Roger returned saying
that it was safe. But reporters pursued us. Who was the first but
Grace Inglis from the "Examiner" and she told us that Harold Welabei'
was the manager of that same paper.
After this commotion Roger interrupted our pleasant memories of
old times by saying that it was time to go on to Stockton because our
aeroplane couldn't stand much more and we hailed the idea of returning
to our old home with joy. So we started, but after a short ride the
engine began to miss and once more we were forced to descend to earth.
W'e landed in a beautiful park, which we discovered later was only a
few miles from Stockton. There were large buildings around us and it
was difficult to determine whether it was a country home or a sanitorium
that we had invaded. Suddenly we beheld a tall figure hastening
towards us. As he came nearer I observed that he wore glasses and had
a worried expression. just then Roger was disturbed out of his habitual
calm by the sudden removal of a monkey-wrench from the tool kit to his
foot. Lucile and I were expressing our sympathies in a lady-like manner
that was evidently not being appreciated when I heard a pleasant
masculine voice say, "Hello," in a "why-you-here-again" tone. We
whirled about, our gazes resting on George Sanderson. I-Ie told us that
this was now the State Asylum and he was the physician in charge.
He smiled as he remarked that such institutions had acquired a fascina-
tion for him in his early youth. As he was speaking, from out of one of
the buildings came one who we at once recognized as Geraldine, now
the wife of George. After effusive greetings we started out on an
inspection of the grounds. From a far corner we saw advancing towards
us a person who was evidently exercising his oratorical abilities. I-Ie
was rolling his eyes and making dramatic flourishes with his arms and
kept shrieking, f'How many elective officers in your town? If so, why?"
Then he grasped his history book and repeated feverously over and over
again, 'fTl1e Crittenden Amendments, the Crittenden Amendments, Oh,
Lord, what are those Crittenden Amendments."
George whispered to us that it was the saddest case he had ever
seen, and that it was Pest Gravem, the pride of the Stockton I-Iigh
School upon whom history had accomplished its baleful inhuence.
Soon another figure came toward us, strutting along in a majestic
manner. In his hand he held a stack of white cards upon which he
was furiously inscribing zeros as fast as he could. Geraldine whispered
that this was another sad case, for it was Clayton Westlaay, and he
was under the hallucination that he was a former history teacher-
Mr. Safford was his name. By this time Clayton, or we might call him
Safford and Pest were within ten feet of each other. Pest looked up,
saw the cards, saw the zeros, gave one Hying leap over a six-foot fence
and all that could be seen of him was his twinkling feet and flying coat
tails as they disappeared down the walk. George and Geraldine asked
us to inspect the buildings but just then some nurses came along and
we joyfully greeted Ruth Huntington, Lois Burgess, Maude Taylor,
Alvina Edmonston, Lavina I-Ianna, Alvira Giottonini and Marcel
The atmosphere was commencing to affect us so we decided it was
time to leave. Wfe journeyed on our way and in a very few minutes the
tall spires of Stockton presented themselves to view. Lucile gazed at
our native city open-mouthed and remarked in an awsome tone, "Roger,
you've been going backwards! Is this Stockton or San Franciscolv
Roger looked at her pityingly and was just about to make a sarcastic
remark when the aeroplane rose upward suddenly decided it was going
the wrong direction and with a suddenness that took away our breath,
swooped down through an inviting skylight and lo, and behold, here was
Bill's-or rather Buteau's-for the little establishment dear to the boys
of '15 had become the most prosperous in California and at the death of
Bill had descended to Buteau Lundy. VVe landed on Buteau's pet
billiard table with an awful crash. The irate proprietor came tearing in
and was just about to unburden himself of all his stored-up wrath when
he recognized us. He grasped us jovially and led us through his estab-
lishment with pride. On the way he told us that our class wonder,
Harry Mazzera, had developed into the heavyweight championship of
the World. just then we reached the imposing front entrance, and there
with a little yellow wagon trimmed in red, George, greasy and perspiring
of Visage, dealing out with hysterical haste-"Hot Dogs."

The tall white-haired old gentleman surveyed the empty rooms
critically. "XVell, with a little painting and lixing, I'll take the house,"
he said, turning to the agent.
A'Very well. Mr. if and after entering a memorandum in his
notebook, the agent turned to go.
"Hold on there, young man, I want to 'explore' these rooms,"
called the old man, impelled by a curiosity that was almost boyish.
"Very good, sir," replied the agent, respectfully. "W'here'll we
"Any where," responded his client, so the two began an inspection
of the big empty house, in the hope of iinding some clue to a possible
mystery, but this hope seemed doomed to disappointment, for not a
single out-of-the-ordinary object appeared. They were just leaving the
big, airy front bedroom, with its windows facing the west, when the last
rays of the setting sun fell upon a pile of dust in the corner. A dull
gleam from this spot caught the attention of the agent, and crossing the
room he picked up a small gold, dust-covered pin.
"'W'hat's this? A Black Hand Society, or some one of those labor
affairs ?" he asked, examining the pin with interest. " WV. XV. VV'.' sounds
rather mysterious. doesn't it?" and he turned to the old man. "lfVhy,
what's the matter?" he asked in amazement 'for the leader of the ex-
ploring expedition stood lost in puzzled thought.
" WV. VV. NNW! Vtfhat IS it? Sounds so familiar, yet I can't place
it. 'VV. XV. NNY'-why, of course! The Senior girls' club at Stockton
High, class of 'l5. I remember now how well they kept the meaning of
the initials hidden from the rest of the school. Wfho did you say lived
here last ?" He Wheeled suddenly around upon the surprised agent.
"I didn't say, but a rich old maid lived here. Her name is Miss-"
"Is it possible! Can you tell me where she lives?" cried the old
man, his face lighting up. The agent gave the address and in a few
minutes the two were whirling away in the big machine which had
been waiting outside the door for its owner. After a keen look into the
other's frank blue eyes, and into his merry, clean-cut face, the old gen-
tleman had impulsively told him the story of a long courtship of this
same lady, a foolish quarrel, and finally, separation and ignorance of
each otheris whereabouts.
To make a long story short, a reconciliation was affected, and the
two lovers, so strangely united, sat together looking with delight upon
the little HXFV. NV. XV." pin. which had been the means of their reunion.
"lsn't it strange that those three little letters should have had still
another meaning for us, besides that one which you girls at Stockton
High had so long ago? NVinning, XVinning, Wfon! just as to you girls
it meant the gradual but hnal winning of your diplomas, and the ac-
complishment of your aim during high school life, to me it has meant
the hnal attaimnent of our long true love."

The day for the Seniors' picnic broke warm and sunshining. with
just enough clouds to make picturesque patches of light and shade upon
the pretty green hills above Clements. By 9:30 o'clock that morning
a group of pulsating automobiles and thrilling excited students had
formed on California street, then one by one a carload of impatient, very
much alive Seniors detached itself from the group and with a sort of
good feeling dashed off towa1'd the country.
It was about ll o'clock when the first machines drew up at the
picnic grounds and their occupants threw off their wraps and jumped to
the ground. But it was-how many hours later was it, anyway, when
Mr. Reed and his car of teachers Hnally put in an appearance? Hard
luck certainly smiled benignly on Mr. Reed that day, but it didn't have
anything on him, because he smiled just as good naturedly back at it.
The reason for the tardy arrival wasn't due to any particular antipathy
of Mr. Reed to eating up the road in one big mouthful, indeed not, but
merely to four or five punctures and blow-outs and other quite as slight
But in the meantime the rest of the party had taken up a position
on a hill beneath myriads of oaks. A very exciting ball game between
teams composed of both girls and boys filled in the time before lunch
tor some of the crowd, while cards, bean bags, and exploring expeditions
whiled the time away for others. Wfhoever says girls are afraid of base-
ball should have been out there and convinced that they're all wrong.
VVhy, some of the girls are marvels alongside of whom Ty Cobb and the
rest of them are mere amateurs.
The prize feature of the afternoon was a draw boxing match be-
tween Miss Howell and Mr. Reed. The two combatants started out
with a rush, Miss Howell landing an effective uppercut on Mr. Reed's
jaw. Mr. Reed came back with a deadly swing to the right, but Miss
Howell side-stepped it with a tantalizing smile at her opponent. The
bell announced the finish of the first round. At the beginning of the
second round Mr. Reed set his jaw a little more squarely and his eyes
bespoke the mind figuring out curves and angles. The second round
was uneventful save for some rapid-fire puts by Mr. Reed and the
dextrous side-stepping and come-backs of Miss Howell. Miss Howell
opened the third round with a left swing to Mr. Reed's ribs, while Mr.
Reed did some pretty defensive lighting. The ensuing few rounds were
marked by Miss I-Iowell's attempt to break down Mr. Reed's clever
guard and the placing of some well directed bouts. The two, however,
seemed to be working under two different theories, Miss Howell's being
that a straight line is the shortest distance between two points, while
Mr. Reed sought to win the match by a use of elusive curves and angles.
By the tenth round both combatants had become thoroughly self-conli-
dent and started the round with a determined rush at each other which
ended in a death-like clinch. Neither seemed to have the advantage and
both refused to give way an inch of ground gained, so the referee called
the time and announced his decision of a draw bout.
At about live the somewhat tired but happy picnickers started for
home, and lo! who did they meet on the way but a worn-out and a dis-
appointed crowd of Juniors in the region of Lockeford. The poor
Juniors had wondered aimlessly about the country all day in their vain
efforts to discover the hiding place of the Seniors, but 'twas of no avail
as the Seniors for once had been too clever' for them.

I purpose to write the history of the class of 1916 from the time we
entered our high school life in 1913, down to a time within the memory
of those able to cling to enough credits to claim membership in said
class. It was one of those warm September days when the excited and
somewhat scared Freshman girls, in their neat little white frocks,
grouped together at the bottom of the steps leading into the main build-
ing, and the Freshman boys ,in their long pants for the first time were
talking together as to what they would do if some upper classmen
would dare to haze them.
Wie then proceeded to organize by electing a president to lead LIS.
After much disturbance, we elected Seth Henshaw. XfVe were now to
begin a career in which student, social and athletic life are involved. But
being very young and delicate, and liable to many hardships which
Freshmen are not able to endure, we did not turn out any athletes. Nor
did we have any social functions, as they would tend to keep us out
late, and we could not have them after school because all Freshmen must
go straight home.
The second year we entered high school with a different view of life.
There were no Seniors to torment us. VVe again organized and re-elected
Seth Henshaw. This year we entered actively into social and athletic
life. Those who made themselves noted in football were Van Dennis
and Seth I-lenshawg in baseball, Mant Sprague carried off honors, being
known as the best outfielder in any high school in California: in track,
Elmer Kohle and Burchard Higby developed.
The girls then arranged for a dance in the halls. and this closed
the year with a bang.
The third year opened with a rush. Wfe elected Mervyn Doyle as
our capable president. In football, we had Elmer Kohle and Burchard
Higby to represent us: in basket ball, Elmer Kohle became quite notedg
in baseball, Sprague and Burton were about the best that made the
teamg in track, we had Burchard lfligby and Elmer Kohle.
Vie also gave a big dance in our new gymnasium, and it has the
reputation of being one of the best dances ever given.
Thus we have reached the three-quarter pole, and expect in the
coming year to go under the wire to a great finish.
Paul Murray Ester Naylor

At our first meeting as high school students, we chose Homer
Guernsey, president. and Helen Wfurster, vice president.
We didn't "pull off" any social functions last year, but for Freshmen
we did wonderfully Well in inter-class athletics.
This year we elected Paul Murray to lead us, and Ester Naylor as
vice president. We have been the real top-notchers as Sophomores. In
the inter-class football, we easily beat the three other teamsg in track,
we easily secured the largest number of points. and could have as easily
won the basket ball and baseball titles if there had been any competitors.
Our ofhcers have been the real backbone of the social functions this
winter. The Sophomore dance, the first of the season, was a success
from start to hnish. Then our president and class were behind the First
masquerade ever given by the Stockton High School. lt was acknowl-
edged the success of all school dances.
Wfith this record behind us, we hope next year to be the leaders
of the school. So far we have shown that we have the "spirit" that
does things, so you may expect to hear favorably from the juniors next
term. XVith VVilbur Leftler as captain of the football squad, Lee Hiekin-
botham as captain of the baseball team, and Jack Raggio promoter of
tennis, we have the athletic honors already cinched. The fact is that if
the coming Seniors don't wake up more than they did this year, no one
will know that there are any Seniors. XVe'd advise them to have a care
when the class of '17 meets them in the rush in 1916.

Last September, when school began, a new Freshman class was
born, consisting of most of the 1914 graduates of the Stockton grammar
schools and some from nearby country schools. XVe were about as
rank and raw as the usual Freshmen.
A few weeks after school opened, an election was held. The othcers
of the class were nominated, to be voted on at a second election. The
officers elected were: President, Ralph Hickinbothamg vice president,
Caroline Minor: secretary-treasurer, Leo Dunneg member of executive
committee, Virginia Thompson. '
Only a few meetings of the class were held until about the end of
football season. As the Freshmen had been ordered to get the boxes,
barrels and oil necessary for the bonelire rally, which was to have been
held on the campus but afterwards cancelled, a meeting was necessary
to know what to do with the funds placed in the treasurer's hands for
that purposes. It was decided to leave them in the treasury.
Our first eltort in a social way was a dance in the gymnasium on
May 15, 1915. The colors chosen for the decorative scheme were green
and pink. Tennis nets, racquets and other tennis articles were used to
give the atmosphere of a tennis dance. About forty couples enjoyed the
hospitality of the Freshmen that evening and the number would have
been greater if a good show down town had not drawn a large crowd.
VVe downtrodden Freshmen will soon be upper classmen, for when
the Seniors graduate, we beco1ne Sophomores. NNY: expect to be heard
from next year. In fact, we have already been heard from in such
matters as inter-class track meets and boat racing. But in spite of our
achievements one thing that has distinguished all former Sophomores,
and in this we shall be unique-we shall not be the pompous individuals
that have been accustomed to parade and degrade the beauty of these
halls, making' themselves generally obnoxious.

YVho has not heard of ancient Hamlin town,
O'er run with rats for many miles aroun','
Until the Piper played his tuneful lay,
Thus charming all the loathsome rats away?
Once more up to his lips he placed his pipes!
Behold! alas! the strangest of all sights!
The children heard his song from far and wide,
He charmed them to a distant mountain sideg
The magic mountain opened wide its door,
The children entered and were seen no more.
just like the Piper is our Hot Dog Man,
VVho cooks hot clogs as fast as ere he cang
His waffles have the charms to soothe our mind
Till to all other pleasures we are blind.
The jingling of his bells doth charm our ear-
NVe know his yellow wagon's drawing near,
And off we run to meet the little man
And order dogs just off the frying pang
Blessed be our Louie, may he ne'er depart
And break the student's very hungry heart.

Qf all the many activities and school organizations which draw the
high school students into a unit, student assemblies and rallies seem
to arouse the most spirit.
This year has been exceptionally rich in arousing rallies, due possibly
to our wonderful new "gym." I remember the lirst assembly we had
this term-a sort of renewal of acquaintance affair and a tuning of our
voices to a roaring St-ockton. The mechanics were still at work on
the building, but their noisy labor served to put more "pep" into our
yelling and I only wonder that our lusty "Give 'em the axe" did not
make them take hastily to their heels. Anyway, that was the first of
our rallies, and, after that, a basket ball game would not have been a
basket ball game if it had not been preceded by the all-important rally.
Did not our athletic assemblies make possible that turf Held that
we are literally "all swelled up" about? Of course, it did. By following
up the principle of deduction, we find if it had not been for those rallies
we had, there might not have been even the ghost of spirit around here
and our athletes, not being supported, would have lost out in their meetsg
then all of us would have lost faith in ourselves and there would not
have been anything but an old plowed field where now there is a beau-
tiful green sward.
Of course, all our get-together moments were not devoted to dis-
turbing the quiet of the vicinity with resounding "sirens" and "locomo-
tive" yells. Wfe can sing, too, as well as yell, for which our music hours
bear witness. It was quite a new idea in Stockton lfligh School and
a mighty good one, too. Every Friday during the advisor period two
classes gathered in the assembly hall for a few minutes of song. The
songs were our American classics, or rather I could say folk songs-
"Old Black Joe," "My Old Kentucky Home," "Long, Long Ago," and
all the other songs which are dear to an American heart, yes, even though
that heart is an irresponsible young one.
Then the commercial students have had many assemblies all their
own. These were, naturally, intended to be possibly more educational
than anything elseg however, the students are quite unanimous in voting
them entertaining. Mr. Neumiller gave an interesting talk on taxationg
Mr. XfVurster spoke on clearance housesg and Mr. Craig also an
Many prominent men have also spoken here this term, giving S. H. S.
students a privilege which many a high school might well envy. Among
the noted men of aHairs who delighted us with their talks was Mr.
Berwick, one of the world's great peace advocates. Having heard him
talk, one certainly could be nothing other than a devout worker for
Since the visit of Mr. Ketcham, "Safety First" has been our mottor.
XVithout doubt he was the most refreshing speaker we have had the
pleasure of hearing this year, both from the standpoint of the message
he had to give and his delightful witticisms. Mr. Ketcham holds a very
responsible position with the Southern Pacific Railroad Company and
it was upon knowledge gleaned in his work that he based his lecture of
Such has been the character of our assemblies this year-assemblies
which, as never before, have drawn the students into an all desirable
sympathy and have made them a unit in striving to uphold the glory
of our loved alma materg a glory not only of track and game. but also a
higher and more lasting one. J. B. XV., '15.
Flip: lguhlir Speaking Gllaaa
As we look backward over the town that has just passed, there
comes to our mind an addition to the school curriculum of which we
have reason to be justly proud-the course in Public Speaking.
VVhen the possibility of such a course was first spoken of, there
were many enthusiasts, but some time later, when the announcement
came that the class would meet at 8:15 each morning, some of these
enthusiasts gasped and gracefully retired. The chaff being blown away,
the wheat remained and under the able guidance of Miss Minerva
Howell, went earnestly to work.
The attempt has been made to make this course as practical as
possible. To do this an audience was necessary and was obtained in
two ways: each morning a sign has been hung over the door of room
six, bearing the words "Visitors welcome, providing that they remain
during the entire period." But this method proved not so effective in
its results as might be wished, so a second and perhaps better plan has
been adopted. Occasionally, during the advisor period certain members
of the class in turn have been chosen to speak from the platform of the
Assembly hall to the Student Body or to certain classes of the school.
Edward Everett Hale, in telling how to become an effective speaker,
HTalk whenever any one is fool enough to ask you." VVhile not insinu-
ating that those tendering invitation are included in the afore mentioned
type, the class has used Mr. Hale's advice as a policy and has not been
slow in accepting all invitations offered. Thus, three weeks after the
class was organized it made its initial bow upon the occasion of Vlfash-
ington's birthday, before the members of the Senior and junior classes.
The speakers of the day were Mildred jenkins, Harry Mazzera, and
Lester Gnekow, and they acquitted themselves so creditably that they
were asked to repeat their program before the Sophomore and Freshman
classes. The next appearance of the class was for the purpose of dis-
cussing the ever-popular "Student Control." Introduced by Lester
Gnekow who at that time was president of the class. Frazer Young,
George Buck and Milton Kingsbury addressed the students. A month
or so later, the members of the Senior, junior and Sophomore years
were entertained by John Gallagher, Harold Gravem and George Buck,
respectively, on the subjects "The Value of the Public Speaking Class,"
"Sell Your Hammer and Buy a Horn if and "The Hyphenated
But the hour's program given by the class on Peace Day was its
crowning achievement. The object throughout was to show the benefits
of peace as compared with the horrors of war. Among those taking part
were Fraser Young, john Gallagher, Aubrey Howland, Mildred jenkins,
Lester Gnekow and Beatrice Davis. George Buck introduced the speak-
ers, and they truly proved themselves a credit to their teacher and to
their school. So impressive were their speeches that by the unanimous
vote of the :faculty the class was requested to further the speaking of
the peace spirit by repeating their program to the patrons of the school
on the evening of -Tune 2. This they did, augmented by Harry Mazzera,
who spoke upon "National Honor and Peace." -
Looking critically at the Public Speaking Class for results, we are
not disappointed. Wfe feel that first of all the course has been a thor-
oughly practical one and a benencial one to the members of the class:
that they have derived from it an ability to prepare well-organized and
effective speeches, and to speak with a clearness and Hnish that is
indeed an adornment to them. M. I., '17.

cousins, the Freshmen, was held Saturday afternoon, October 3rd, in
the gymnasium. The decorations were green, as that color was deemed
most suited to the age and-well-the genral appearance of the young
Since they hope to graduate in 191-8, the costumes were supposed
to represent the fashions of that year, and some startling gowns were
worn by the hostesses and their guests.
Doris Knight. Georgia Pound and Freda Dustin, members of the
committee of arrangements, appeared in Turkish trousers of brilliant
colors, and looked as if they might have escaped from the harem of
some Turkish prince. Many other original costumes were worn, and
it is certain that if the creators of Parisian fashions could have attended
the party, they would have turned green with envy at seeing some of
their worst efforts outdone.
Only simple, childish games were played, so that the babes felt
quite at their ease, and their innocent sport was sweet to behold.
Crackers and milk were served to the children at an early hour, with
more substantial refreshments for the elders, and the party then broke
up, for Freshmen, you know, must be safely home before the five o'clock
The first "jolly up" of the season was held on the evening of Novem-
ber Zlst in the gym. Through the efforts of Miss Davis, the artair was
a great success.
l An excellent program was given during the early part of the evening,
and later dancing was enjoyed. Paul Mitchell gave a demonstration of
fancy Indian club swinging. Irving Neumiller sang 'fVagabond Lyrics."
Ruth Lamb sang the Uihepherdess' Song" very sweetly, and several
other very good numbers were given. About eight couples danced the
Virginia reel .the Dan Tucker and other old-fashioned dances with much
grace and spirit.
The girl dancers and members of the committees were attired in
gay paper costumes.
Miss Davis worked very hard training the dancers and perfecting
the plans for the jolly up, and her work was appreciated by all those
who attended the most successful school party of the year.
lVith their usual spirit, the Sophomores were the tirst class to give
a dance this year. The dance was held in the gymnasium on the night
of December 19th. The gym was elaborately decorated with greens
and the class colors, white and green. The program still further carried
out the white and green color scheme. The chaperons were Mr. and
Mrs. Elliott and Miss Grace Davis. Delicious punch was served, and
excellent music added to the evening's pleasure. The Sophs may be
congratulated on the success of their dance, which was one of the most
largely attended of the year.

On February 6th the juniors gave a "hop" in the gymnasium, which
was attractively decorated with potted plants and the class colors, orange
and black. Serpentines thrown over the rafters gave a gay touch to
the scene. Punch was served throughout the evening, and music was
furnished by Miss Musto's orchestra. The patrons and patronesses were
Mr. and Mrs. Allen, Mr. and Mrs. Elliott, Miss Halwick, Miss Cliberon,
Miss Adele Howell, Miss Inez Henderson and Mr. Mawhorter.
Although the attendance was not large, one of the best times of
the year was enjoyed by all present.

costumes, happy boys and girls, and good music. It was the finest dance
ever given in the gym. Tramps and princesses walked arm in arm, and
the scene upon the Floor, as viewed from the bleachers, looked like a
congress of all nations. The mingling of so many varied characters,
and the profusion of gay colors, all moving to the strains of waltz music,
made a gay and novel picture. Those who were fortunate enough to
be present and enjoy the festivity of the happy occasion will remember
the merry hours until "time grows old and the leaves of the judgment

Dutch Neumiller and Tom Louttit.

For the lirst time in the history of the school, the Freshmen were
hosts at a dance held the 15th of May in the gymnasium. It was a novel
agair, being a tennis dance. Sprays of greenery were hung artistically
around the gym, while tennis nets draped on the walls carried out the
idea of the dance. The girls all wore white middies and skirts, while
the boys in their white shoes and trousers resembled real tennis players.
Punch was served throughout the evening and music was furnished by
Miss Musto's orchestra.

For three years the Stockton High School has maintained a suc-
cessful Lyceum Course. The last year was the best of the three, not
only in interest and attendance, but in the character of the individual
numbers. This eight-number course afforded the unusual opportunity
to the public, and particularly to the students, of hearing some of the
very best concerts and lectures at the very reasonable rate of 582.50 for
the adult season ticket and S125 for the student season ticket.
This yearls course opened October 20th with the Dunbar Male Quar-
tette, which for ten years has been considered one of the best concert
companies. They showed great versatility in their program, which
consisted not only of varying numbers of vocal music, but also of clever
impersonations and most remarkable bell ringing. Their bells numbered
two hundred and .fifty and ranged from one to twenty-Five pounds.
The Killarney Girls followed on November 14th and proved them-
selves to be most delightful entertainers. The seven Irish lassies
appeared in Irish costumes under appropriate stage setting, presenting
an unusual program of song and instrumental music, which was inter-
spersed with impersonations. The playing of a genuine Irish harp by
Rita Rich was one of the special attractions.
Alton Packard proved to be a most suitable number for Thanks-
giving evening, as his clever cartoons and humorous lecture kept every-
one in a happy state of mind. His pictures were drawn with remarkable
celerity and with unusual accuracy. His lecture withal was very
The fourth number on January 5th was Montaville Flowers, formerly
president of the Cincinnati Academy of Dramatic Art. Mr. Flowers'
reading of "Hamlet" was well done and somewhat out of the ordinary,
in that he represented Hamlet as a youth.
The concert by the Passmore Trio on February 12th was an artistic
triumph for these talented California daughters. The musical people
of the audience, which was one of the largest of the course, pronounced
the concert perfect, Ending it a difficult matter to determine which of
the three had excelled, the violinist, the pianist, or the cellist.
David Starr jordan, despite his slight indisposition, gave a most
enlightening discussion of the "Lessons of the VVar" on Friday evening,
The seventh number on April 9th seemed to be the most popular
of the entire course. Montraville M. VVood, the inventor, showed to a
large audience that a scientific lecture can be made interesting to the
public. His demonstration of the gyroscope, monorail. and ultra-violet
ray was marvelous.
The closing number on April 30th was one of the very best. Mar-
shall Darrack, the noted Shakespearean reader, gave an excellent reading
of "The Merchant of Venice." The many and varying characters were
given without change of scene and without any costume whatsoever in
a most remarkable manner.
The course for 1915-1916 promises to be even better than the last,
six ofthe numbers having been already engaged. each of which is a star
number in itself.
The six numbers are as follows: The Apollo Concert Company,
one of the best instrumental companies on the platform: Albert F.
Wfiggam, America's foremost authority on eugenies and efficiency: the
Oxford Musical Club, one of the best vocal troupes of marked versatility,
Judge Geo. A. Alden, the noted Boston lecturerg Sidney Landon, the
entertaining lecturer and imitator in "Types of Literary Menng and
Frederick Wfarde, the eminent Shakespearean actor and reader.
During the past year the Thespians of our high school have been
unusually active. Aside from the Big S Vaudeville and the Senior play,
which are animal events, there have been several productions by the
members of the various English classes. These ambitious young actors
have gone back to the classical dramas of Shakespeare for their material.
The stage in the assembly hall has run red with the blood of the 1nur-
dered Caesar, and its walls resounded with the impassioned cries of our
school julia Marlowes and E. H. Sotherns.
The boys of Miss Moore's 10-A class put on the murder scene from
"Julius Caesar" in a truly Shakespearean manner. As in Shakespeare's
time, there was no scenery to draw attention from the action of the play,
and the costumes were improvised Roman togas. It was an "all star"
cast and every member of it deserves especial mention. Those who
took part were Arthur Glick, Howard Moore, Stanford Raymond, Paul
Murray, Allan Sapiro, Morris VVallin, Merle Sprague, George lfVilliams,
Hartwell Wallace, Lewis Fox and Carmine Boscoe.
Another performance given by the Sophomores was "Pyramus and
Thisbe," from "A Mid-Summer Night's Dream." This was staged on
the campus, beneath the wide spreading oak which shades the lawn on
the western side. Here Thisbe and Pyramus held the attention of their
audience before falling on their pocket knives and dying in a mock
tragic manner. Merle Sprague as Thisbe, Lee Hickinbotham as Pyra-
mus, and Allan Sapiro, Stanford Raymond, Melvin Parker and Arthur
Glick as Noall, Moonshine, Lion and the Prologue, respectively, were
excellent, and Bottom, Swine and Snout themselves could not have
been any funnier.
Miss Howell's ll-A class led the retreat from the standards of
Shakespeare by presenting one act from the dramatization of Thackeray's
famous novel, "Henry Esmond." The cast was carefully selected, and
some time was spent in preparing the parts, so that the performance
was highly successful and greatly enjoyed by all who witnessed it.
Those who were responsible for its success were Alberta VVilkes, Bethel
Guernsey, Mildred jenkins, Harold Gravem and Buteau Lundy.
And now for the crowning achievement-the most successful, with
one exception, of all our dramatic efforts. In other words, the Big S
Vaudeville! The Yosemite Theater was crowded on the night of Feb-
ruary 27th with enthusiastic students and friends of the performers.

opened the bill with some excellent acrobatic stunts which were very
well received. They showed through their work the value of gymnastic
training in the schools and proved that they had taken full advantage
of the athletic opportunities which had come their way. p
"The Long Green Club," a little skit written by Percy Ahearn, was
very clever, and the singing of Paul Murray, jack Raggio and the author
was especially good.
The little "Dutch Maids," eight in number, who introduced Dutch
folk dances and songs in so charming a manner, had really one of the
best acts on the program. Their costumes were blue and white, and the
girls looked exactly like the quaint little figures to be seen on the Delft
pottery. The "Dutch Maidens" were Annie Fuhrman, Helen Quinn,
Nadine McQuigg, Edna Gormsen, Lena Comfort, Eva Hildebrand, Jessie
Nicholas and Florence Halwick.
Van Dennis and Elmer Kohle staged a most novel and amusing act.
The audience was surprised to see them described on the program as
Hacrobats of international fame." Before putting their marvelous
strength to the test, they devoured a package of "Force" between them
and the effect was immediate a11d truly wonderful. They performed
difficult acrobatic feats with the greatest ease and puzzled the audience
by an exhibition of skill which no one dreamed they possessed. The
climax was finally reached, however, when Kohle, who had been
balancing for some time on Dennis' head, was left dangling in mid-air
by a wire, like a spider on a thread, while his partner took a stroll about
the stage. Tncidentally, the audience roared with laughter.
'fPest" Gravem, our pride and joy, is certainly a king among fun
makers. His "spiel" at the vaudeville was even funnier than the one
he made as auctioneer, which, you know, is about the highest praise
that can be given. As the "Newly Elected Fire Chief of Peters," with
false whiskers, a disguised voice, and some jokes that were real jokes, he
scored the hit of the evening.
Miss lla Tretheway and WVilbert Cowell, as "Mr. and Mrs. Douglas
Crane," proved themselves worthy imitators of that famous couple by
their very graceful dancing. The Maxixe, Fox Trot, Half and Half, and
other of the ultra-modern ballroom dances were gracefully demonstrated
in a truly professional manner which delighted the audience.
Miss Eda Lawson, accompanied by Miss Dustin, sang very sweetly
"Mary jane," "Song of the Soul" and "Can't You Heah Me Callin',
Caroline?" and responded to several encores.
In "Rehearsing for That Big S Show," Miss Gladys Fox and Irving
Neumiller gave a true to life picture of two high school students prac-
ticing for that great event. Both of them sing very sweetly, and as their
voices blend well, their duets were especially pleasing. Miss Fox can
play ragtime with a snap that sets all feet to tapping.
Roger I-Iardacre and Dix Garland put on an amusing act in which
the dialogue was between a negro and a white man, Hardacre taking
the part of the negro and Garland the other.
"The Reconsiliationf' a one-act drama written by Emil Gunipert, a
former high school student, was staged very prettily, with Blanche
I-Iillegas in the leading role. She was ably supported by Scott Hyde,
Harold Comfort, Cyrus I-Iickinbotham and George Sanderson.
Thus ended the Big S Vaudeville, the best and most successful
undertaking of its kind ever attempted by Stockton High School. Its
financial success really put the long desired turf Held "on the map," while
the general excellence of all the acts gave a new impetus to school spirit.

This year's football team was the best uniformed team that Stockton
High School has produced since adopting Rugby. Through Coach Elliot
the men were given the real game of Rugby, and notwithstanding the
many difficulties under which they worked, a hue team was produced.
'The team was placed in a disadvantageous position at the start. The
field was not in shape and consequently the asylum ground. which was
used for the Erst month, was very hard on the new men. The present
gymnasium was far from complete at the start of the season and the
men used the basement for a dressing room. However, with all these
disadvantages the team worked hard and faithfully, and though the few
games played may not show this, the manner in which the men played
in those games was more than the score.
All of Stockton I-ligh's team have played hard, and they have played
the game clean, which is more to their credit than the largest list of
scores that was ever piled up.
Next year's team should be "one wonderful team." A few 'men
will be lost by graduation, but their places will be filled by members
of this year's second team. The turf iield will aid those who are playing
to show more speed, and will be much more inviting to those who are
just trying out, and we wish Captain Lefder and his team the best

BOYS' BASKET BALL TEAM
I , Q gr
he Brat in Lflzmkrt Lflall
By Rajah, '15
Basket ball. the king of indoor sports, was not successful as far
as putting out a league champion is concerned, but it was highly suc-
cessful both in a hnancial way and in furnishing a game that anyone
could play, owing to the larger number and grades of the teams.
At the beginning of the season, Coach Elliott organized something
new lin this school, at leastfj when squads of 80, 90, 100, 120, 130 and 140
pounds were created. These, together with the hrst and second teams,
made it possible for all to "play the game'
The 80, 90, 100 and 145 pound teams were not entered in the
P. A. A., but they played quite a few contests during the year. The
145 pound squad beat Berkeley High School's fast aggregation on the
Berkeley open court by a score of 38-32, and on the same day the 100
pound team was defeated by the Berkeley infants, ZS-20. The 89-90
team won three contests with local grammar school quintets. These
three squads were made up follows:
S0-90 pounds-Burns, Stribley, Sweem, .IQ MacKenzie, Tobenkin,
Sala, XVilkinsen, Branson, VVilliams, Roberts, Valberde, W'ells, Powell
100 pounds-il. Mackenzie Qcaptainj, Sprague, Rider, VVestphal,
La Veau, Schaffer, Frankenheimer, Bowen.
145 pounds-Davis, Hubner, Ahern, Johnson, Gadbury, Eyes, Vogel-
The fast little 120 pound five managed to Fight their way into the
C. 1. F. semi-finals under the capable captaincy of Bur Higby, losing
the semi-Final contest at Fresno in a hard fought game. The 120 pound
quintet wore the uniforms of last year's fast Y. M. C. A. Pirates, and the
same -lynx that followed that unfortunate team must have followed the
suits to the local squad. At any rate, the 120 pounders deserve great
praise for their plucky iight for the championship. Higby, Graham,
Sprague, Allec, Hornage, Dodo, Cruz, Sinai, Fay and Powers composed
the squad, whose work for the season resulted as follows:
S. H. S. 120 vs. Stockton 130 pound Athletics-I..ost.
S. H. S. 120 vs. S. H. S. 130 pound C2 gamesj-1Von 2.
S. H. S. 120 vs. Berkeley 120 pound-W'on.
S. H. S. 120 Fresno 120 pound-Lost.
TOtZ1l-XKICJII 3, lost 2.
The 130 pound squad, under Ralph Hickinbotham, won the first
game of the season, against U. C., but fell down utterly after that
contest, losing four straight games. Berkeley High School slipped over
a 36-3-1 win on the local lads, and the Stockton Athletic Club beat them
out for the P. A. A. sub-league title. The team looked strong on paper,
but failed to work well together and the breaks of the game were against
them. The 130 pounders were R. Hickinbotham fcaptainj, R. Higby,
Brown, Holland, Neumiller, Hardacre, Stout, VVallace, K. MacKenzie.
The season closed in this way:
S. H. S. 130 pound vs. U. C. 130 pound-VVon.
H. S. 130 pound vs. S. H. S. 120 pound C2 gamesj-Lost Z.
S. H. S. 130 pound vs. Stockton Athletic 130 pound-Lost.
S. H. S. 130 pound vs. Berkeley 130 pound-Lost.
Total-1Von 1, lost 4.
So much for the weight teams. The blue and white varsity showed
every indication of cleaning up the state at the beginning of the season,
but the loss of Laveaga and the inability of Lee Hickinbotham to take
part, together with Captain Cy's absence from the line-up, put a serious
crimp in the pennant hopes, and when the end of the season arrived the
blue and White warriors were put out of the running, losing at Woodlaiid.
To start the season off well, Stockton slapped a defeat on our old
rivals, Lodi, and the fans were wild over the clock-work regularity of
the baskets. McKenzie and Hickinbotham worked at the forward posi-
tions like "champs,', and Laveaga at center hit the basket with amazing
frequency, while Kohle and Comfort held the opposition in check in
great style. Then came that long-talked-of game with the Oakdale
"I-Ieckersf' when the' blue and White ran up a total of 99 points while the
crowd clamored for 100, and Oakdale went home with a measly 10. Lee
Hickinbotham scored 37 points. The next game was with Turlock, who
had beaten the Stockton boys once before, but who failed to repeat
and went down to a 33 to 24 score.
just when prospects seemed brightest, Laveaga was forced to leave
school, and the shifting around in developing a center hurt the team
Work of the squad.

However, the local boys were not discouraged and by shifting Lee
Hickinbotham to center and putting "Pat" Patterson at forward with
McKenzie, stacked up against Davis U. C. Farm, and game "Fuss"
Neistrath's pets a big scare, losing out by three points. Superior weight
told against the local lads, who put up a game fight.

Blow followed blow, and right after Laveaga quit school it was
found that Lee I-Iickinbotham could not play because of his studies.
Then when the night of the Sacramento game came around, :'Doc"
Comfort could not play because of outside work, and the blue and white,
much to the gloom of the loyal rooters, started the game with a strange
line-up, with Raggio in center, Burgess and Kohle guards, and Patterson
and McKenzie forwards. But the gloom faded away before a tide of
enthusiasm when the local team, with splendid determination, fought
every inch of the way and performed the almost impossible feat of
downing Sacramento 41 to 18 in a C. I. F. contest.
lmnnhlanh 1112 fdgnx
But the trip to VVoodland, like the football trip, was disastrous to
Stockton and the chances for the C. I. F. title went glimmering away
when the northerners pasted a defeat on the local hopes. However,
there remained a slim chance in the Lodi game, for if Lodi could be
defeated Stockton might get another crack at Woodlaiid. ,Consequently
a trainload of rooters journeyed to the north San Joaquin center and
saw the blue and white bow before the proud red and gold of Lodi by a
score of 18 to 19. Stockton was minus the services of Lee Hick and
this told in the result.
Glurlnrk :mil Baum
Although out of the C. I. F., Coach Elliott arranged to play some
outside games. The squad journeyed to Davis and came back with a
big defeat, and when they went down to Turlock another nice beating
was slipped to the blue and White.
igupv fur Next ljvar
"Old Mani' Hickinbotham determined to close the season with a
victory, so he had "Slim" Curtis and "Shovel" Spayd, jr., reinstated in
the good graces of amateur officials and picked a fight with Berkeley
High. So anxious was Cy to get a crowd to help his hopefuls to success
that he passed out tickets at ten cents per, and the big new gym was
packed to the rafters. VVith Curtis at center, who can reach up and
lay the ball in the basket, Spayd and Kohle at guard, and Hickinbotham
and Comfort forwards, the blue and white closed up the season of 1914-15
with a win, and "Cyn felt good again. Berkeley didnit have a chance,
and it is safe to say that if Spayd, Kohle, Lee Hick, Patterson and Curtis
return to school there will be another championship quintet in '15-'16.
The 1915 varsity was as follows:
Forwards-Lee Hickinbotham, McKenzie and Patterson.
Center-Laveaga, Raggio and Curtis.
Guards-Burgess, Kohle, Comfort, Leliier and Spayd.

Lee Hickinbotham, captain for 1916, scored forty points in two
games, one with Turlock and the other with Oakdale. "Doc" Comfort
made the most fouls, while McKenzie scored most free throws.
The baseball outlook for 1915 was very encouraging in the early
spring. Qwing to the weather conditions, the team was a little late
in getting to work. However, when the weather did clear up, it started
with a flash. The fellows were full of vim and were out lighting for
their positions. The team has been working under didiculties in not
having a diamond near the school, but they have been faithful never-
Wfhen practice started on the lawn there were twenty-two men on
hand, determined to make positions on the team. After two weeks of
work, we changed pastures and practice was held at Oak Park. Owing
to the large number of players trying out for positions, it was necessary
to cut down the squad, so Coach Elliott applied the "weeding outu
process and reduced the number to Fifteen, a far simpler number to
handle. Fielding, batting, bunting and sliding practice was indulged
in, and before leaving the grounds they were led by the captain on a
run around the iield before taking their showers, which were a mile away.
In a short time the team became very etiicient and was ready to meet

Stars, XfVestern Normal, Commercial College, Heald's College, Faculty
from Stockton Grammar Schools, and the Stockton Athletic Club.

At the time of this writing we are still in the finals, with two or
three games to be played. Those who have won their block "S" are
Alley, Allec Wfilson, Burton, Sprague, Patterson, Bolton, Robinson and
Captain Mackenzie. Two or three others would have undoubtedly won
their letter if it was not for injuries at the time of the game. They still
have a chance of doing so. They are Russell Higby, R. Dunne, L. Bur-

of honor to the school.

It is impossible to have a healthy mind without a healthy body.
True, history tells us of many powerful and highly productive intellects

us to believe that many notable intellects of the above class would have
added a great deal more to the profit and store of the world's knowledge
had their lives been longer and vitalized by reasonable observance of
The statement made by Dr. Butler of Columbia University is very
striking from a physical education standpoint. The statement that a
sound body determined three things, a physical test of muscle, heart and
lungs comparable to the best for military efficiency should be required
for entrance to university life is extreme, taken in the narrow sense, but
taken in the light of the physical educator of the future, it embodies a
The object of this department is the good health of all the students.
Suitable outdoor activity is recommended to fit individual needs after
a physical examination. Should a student invite impairment of health
by neglect of prescribed physical exercise, the faculty should give assign-
ments of courses accordingly, since health and vigor are fundamental
to a sound mind and subsequent success. 1
One other point before closing this brief outline, in reference to
play I wish to quote from f'Mind and Bodyug "Play as a training in
application." That certainly sounds like a paradox, and yet every one
knows that play is the first thing in life to give rise to that peculiar
overwhelming eagerness which alone can bring every 2ltO1T1 of one's
strength into action. Ability to focus oneys whole mind upon an under-
standing and to apply one's whole body in concentrated effort is what
we all need mostg and vigorous competition play serves better than
anything else, if indeed there is anything else to create it.
Intense and eager application! That means not only an escape from
laziness and apathy, but eagerness as the only thing in the world that
denes fatigue. A healthy boy can put forth an amazing amount of
physical effort and be fresh at the end of a day of play, and a man
whose habit of application is so highly developed that it assumes a
quality of eagerness and never fails in absolute singleness of purpose,
is there any limit to what such a man can do? Likewise have you ever
seen that, of a "Hamburg Dog of Louis" while playing a game of
Every one should have an activity out of doors if possible. My
space is too limited to show that activity, big muscle activity, is abso-
lutely essential for complete development, both mental and physical. I
would like to have the sentence, "VVhat is your activity?,' answerable
by every single student. This will be our aim to bring this about
next year. There are to be added new opportunities for enjoyment and
development, so from the following make a selection: Tennis, baseball,
football fRugby and Soccerj, basket ball, volley ball, track, indoor,
gymnasium contests and activities, boating, canoeing, swimming, diving,
water polo, and other aquatic sports. Have an activity, and a good
strenuous one, if not inadvisable due to physical discrepancy, if nothing
more than mowing the lawn, as Tyler says in "Growth and l2ducation":
"Muscular exercise and fresh air are absolutely necessary to the child
to promote growth and development of the vital organs in the brain."
"The basis of education is and must be physical."
If Dr. Buttle advocates an exacting physical training for entrance
into the universities, which would be too drastic under present condi-
tions, he does wish to impress the public mind with the necessity of
giving sane and systematic attention to physical education from baby-
hood up, that such a test sometime in the future may follow as a matter
of course. Thus we would reach the ideals of the Greeks. Education-

Here is the yell leader, Van Dennis, and his assistant, Scott Hyde.
These two fellows have worked together as one man throughout the
year trying to produce a good yell team. They started in with a bunch
of good new yells. but a rooting section and a rooting section that didn't
know how to begin to yell, but with careful training, lots of patience
and hard work the yell leaders succeeded in getting a rooting section
that is hard to beat.
The athletics of the school are quite a hit, but they can not amount
to much unless the rooting section is right behind them. Many a time
a team has been behind and there seemed no chance of winning, when
all at once the rooting section would come out with a roaring, snappy
yell, and therteam would go into the game harder, light to the bitter end,
probably winning, for they knew the rooting section was with them.

They said we surely were the dumbest
That S. H. S. ever had,
But since one quarter now has vanished,
They've found we're not so bad.
Ralph Newton is our president,
So thoughtful, wise and trueg
In drawing he's a genius,
Excelled by very few.
Our dramatist, fair Herma, is
A bright and lively lassg
In asking quips and quizzes deep
There's none can her surpass.
Old George is surely a rare study,
He's "oyster" from morning till nightg
He's a regular clown about high school,
His cantrips are really a fright.
The next in line is Virginia,
Wfho by everyone is thought
To present the very latest in fashions
But is never in mischief caught.
Then fifth comes Harold Shafer,
In tennis he does not lack,
Through many a happy hour
He practices on the track.
The next is Peggy, who's very fair
And only surpassed by few!
She never was known to be found unhappy
As she always has something to do.
Elliot is seventh in our line,
A busy and active lad,
Though troubled by lessons many a time,
He's never found to be sad.
Next in line comes Zelda,
INho, with her natural wit,
lust dotes on giving her classmates
An answer that seems to fit.
The next is Roscoe, who's never late,
Though his light and curly locks
VVill ever be deadly rivals
To his lovely colored socks.
Edna Todman is found to be
A member of our glee:
She considers her voice a precious gift
Of value soon to be.
Lilas is another on our list,
A maid, we are sorry to say,
That expects to leave our present class,
To another school tribute to pay.
The thirteenth may seem an unlucky day,
But wilwarths' an exception to the rule,
Heis the very best sort of fellow, you know,
And I assure you he's nobody's fool.
And last ofthe 1nz1ny'that are mentioned here,
A slender, smiling lass,
The writer of this little poem,
Wfho is fond of her prominent class.
Such the rank of our Freshmen,
An odd lot we mav seem'
just let us be, and you willlsee
The glory of class 'lS.

ONE HUNDRED FIVE are employed in the schools of San

These teachers have not received their appointments be-
cause they are Western Normal graduatesg but because they are
making good. They are winning upon merit and not as the
result of influence.
The Western Normal is not a "cramming" institution. lts
work measures up to the highest educational standards. Cram-
ming methods cannot produce high grade teachers such as
Westem Norlnal graduates are proving themselves to he.
Those of the class of 1915 who expect to prepare for teach-

Man's love may be to one so true
That pleasure is his-A toast!
But he is the fellow who bids adieu,
For he lives for love alone.
Back to his love, so sellish, so true.
.Does he care for us? No.
lYrapped cold in his love, his friends are few.
But yet,-another lives.
The chap that speaks a kindly word
XiVhen the world is running wrong,
The fellow that grips your hand right hard
And tells you life's a song.
What if we know the fellow lies,
l'Vhat if he knows it, too?
There are times in life when the friend that lies
Is the only friend that's true.
For the course of love is often sad.
lt may to the giver, giveg
Then the course of love is often mad,
But friendships ever live.
God made love, and love made trouble:
Love-as frail as a bubble.
Then God made friendship-a boon to send,
A noble, faithful friend.
Tho' love may darken and be lost,
Friendships we neier can severg
Tho' love may grow as cold as frost,
Friendship burns forever.

Some exhibitors claim that their plays are as good as "Paramount"
plays. It naturally follows then that "Paramount Pictures" must be
good when an exhibitor takes pride in such a claim.
"Paramount Pictures" are shown exclusively at the Lyric.

Eureka! They had found it! Yes,
A band of Spaniards bold
Had found the precious mother-vein,
The Key to the Gate of Gold.
One said, "Return we to the island,
Our comrade lost to find",
VVithin a day, they cruised away
And left just one behind.
just one, a lovely Spanish maid,-
Wlio traveled with the band,
Her sWeetheart's parting words had been,
"Remain, to guard the land!"
By pirates bold their ship was rammed,
All perished 'neath the waves,
The secret almost went with them
Down to their mat'ry graves.
Meanwhile, upon the mount, Serene
For seven nights and days
Looked out upon the sea, yet naught
But ocean met her gaze.
VVaiting on the haunted mount,
She guards the magic key:
Gazing on the ocean deep,
She sees-the rippling sea.
At last the spirit of the mount
Took pity on her fate,
And changed her into flint and stone
To guard the Golden Gate.
Waitiiig on the haunted mount,
She guards the magic key,
Gazing on the ocean deep,
She sees-the rippling sea.
High on rocky Tamalpais,
Forever she must wait,
Serene she lies, 'neath morning skies,
And guards the Golden Gate.

An' make it brite an' cheerful, but I think I'll jist
Tell you 'bout the diffrunt things thet I hed did to me.
An' how I wuz a optomist-an' I hope you will agree.
Everything wuz upside down with me one day-
Owed a guy a quarter, which pa made me pay. -
My bran' new Chrismus bicycle somebody took,
I broke my little Ingersoll an' los a book.
Had a awrful earache, too, an' then when I
Fed my pet bird pepper, 'course he had to die.
Had a turible time all day, but worse of all
I busted a ITIEIIIYS window an' he kep' my ball.
IfVhen I went a swimmin', an' wuz divin' in.
Someone tied my clothes up jes' as tite as sin.
Skinny plastered me with mud, an, I sez, "You watch out."
Then he hollered, "Don't you think I know what I'm about ?"
Fore I knew what he wuz up to he commenced to fight,
,Course I wuzzent ready, an' he beat me up, all rite.
But he cuddent do it if he'd lit me fair,
'Stead of kickin' an' a bitin, an' a tearin' 0' my hair!
Still the worstest thing thet happened to me all thet day.
My girl, she wuddent speek to me, but looked the other way.
I orter go away frum here an' be a pirut bold
An' make old Skinny walk the plank, and seek for buried gold.
But gee, I didnit cry a bit, but laffed and jist
Said I diclent care a rap, 'cause-I'm a optomist!

One day in my dream I was waited away
To a large stone school, one fair summer day.
It all seemed so strange, on a thick cloud of gloom,
Yet I saw very plainly our old history room.
Upon entering there I beheld such a change
That it made me, indeed, feel ever so strange.
I looked for a reason, but could not well see
VVhy the boys should be seated just where girls should be.
But to me, stranger still, was the recitation of Dwight:
Wfhy, he missed not a thing, but told everything right.
After this, Mr. I-lowes on XVill Faulkner did call,
And try as he might, he could tell nothing at all.
Things were just opposite, it seemed to be the air
That had a strange influence on everybody there.
After while it got me, too, for I was to silence inclined,
And talked not at all lthough the class did not mindj.
Edna did not whisperg this was queer, too,
Even Helen seemed now to have nothing to do.
At length a loud "Marion" fell on my ear,
I jumped from my seat, feeling danger was near.
I awoke to the fact that he was calling on meg
I just 'stood there thinking what the question might be,
Wfhen our class started to laughg then I began to pout,
But just then the bell rang so we all passed out.
