For example, a mother, well blessed' with wordly goods, will say, "My daughter will never need to work. I want her education to tit her for her place in society." "Very well, mad'am," we reply, "we can give her a course which will prepare her to occupy the position she expects to hold. IYe will acquaint her with the best in literatureg we will make her skilled in Latin and the modern languages, in art and music, we will teach her to converse properly, we will instruct her in the history of the human race-its struggles and accomplishments, and we will add to her grace and general health by our splendid course in physical trainingf, Surely that mfother could not desire a more appropriate course for her daughter. Again, a fond parent may explain, ':My daughter is talented in music and art. VVhile I would like to send her to high school, I feel that it is my duty to improve her talents, and I cannot afford to do bothf' "Send her to us,', we answer, Hand you will not need to give her outside drawing and singing lessons. IYe have a course in freehand drawing which will acquaint her with the rudiments of her art, and then take her on to leather work, pen and ink sketching, costume ' Nine ,, M... ,W designing, interior decorating, woodblock printing, stenciling, and jewelry work. For her singing we have a splendid two-year course in vocal music and also a course in music history. So while she is attending school, she can also be improving her natural talents without the expen- diture of additional time or money." Or a father, when approached on the subject of high school, may say. "Xl ell, I d'on't care to have my boy become a teacher, an artist, or a doctor, I want him to enter the business world." "Then," we reply, "you could not do better financially or educa- tionally than to give him a high school commercial course. This includes bookkeeping, business practice, stenography and typewriting, arithmetic and accounting, penmanship, commercial law, commercial English, commercial geopgraphy, advertising and salesmanship, and several other subjects that he may choose. You pay no tuition. The only expense to you is for his books, and he will study under the best and most efficient teachers obtainable." And so it goes. For the future ,carpenter we offer joining, cabinet making, wood turning, shop mathematics, geometrical and mechanical drawing and architectural drawing and designing. For the young doctor or scientist, there is biology, physiology and hygiene, general and applied' chemistry and physics. For the prospective farmer, agriculture, horticulture, poultry, live stock, chemistry, and farm mechanics. For the engineer, algebra, plane and solid geometry, trigo- nometry and physics. 'And for the dear little girl Qbless her heartlj who shyly admits that it is her ambition "just to be a good housekeeperi' an excellent course in cooking and sewing. And just one more thought in closing. How often inthe past has the mother of the pupil living at a distance from school sighed' over the fact that her dear one must subsist on a cold lunch at noon, while she and dad are enjoying their hot and appetizing meal at home! Now she may set her mind at rest, for with the new cafeteria, the boy and girl can enjoy a thoroughly nutritious and wholesome lunch at a price which will be an agreeable surprise. So. no longer is the high school merely for the boy and girl who expect to teach or to remain at home. Cn the contrary, it is now open to every boy and every girl, for among the many courses and' several branches. there is at least one particular corner to please and satisfy each pupil, whatever his ambitions and expectations. ' bk Pkvls all MILITARY TRAINING IN HIGH SCHOOL Military authorities have agreed that preparedness is necessary to maintain peace in the United' States. They have agreed that ad-equate preparedness will cost an enormous sum of money. Economical states- men, recognizing the necessity and seeing the costiliness of prepared- ness, hit upon a plan of training the high school students to defend this great broad country of ours in time of stress. This a most despicable and cowardly procedure. In the event of wrar these mlen would sit back and enjoy peace that was paid for, not in money, but in the lives of the young men of the coming generation, in the lives of the young men who had not yet met with the world. Another 'iobjection 'to military training is that it destroys seli reliance. The duty of a soldier is to obey. The officer is only to do the thinking, the private obeys, He is forced by intangible rules into blind obedience. The schools were established for the purpose of Ten encouraging and cultivating thought. The military system on the other hand, ignores and discourages thought on the part of any but the officers. The student is given a rifle. He is told to hold the riiie at attention. He does. He is told to fire the rifle. He fires. In thus blindly executing the will of another, he is a mere automaton. Tenny- sonunderstood this principleand ably expressed it in f'The Charge of the Light Brigade." i "Into the valley of Death Rode the six hundred Though the soldiers knew Some one had blundered Theirs not to reason why, Theirs not to make reply, Theirs but to do and die." The school system and! the war system have nothing in common. We should be unalterably opposed to military training in our schools, because it wfould join in close partnership the finest thing that -American civilization has given to humanity-our free public schools, the hope of democracy-with war, the most barbaric, inhuman, un-Christian system that a cruel fate ever inflicted on a struggling world It has been the custom in the past to send only our physically perfect men away to iight, leaving at homie the scholars, the philoso- phers, and the sages to gather the wisdom and the learning of the present and past and preserve that wisdzom and learning for the future In this way struggling civilization has been carried over many a dan- gerous chasm and preserved for us. We are now intrusted with the wisdom and learning of a thousand generations back to be preserved by us for a thousand generations to come. Are we then to think lightly of this sacred trust and endanger the safety of it by risking the lives of the coming philosophers and scholars? Then we must look at the moral side of the question. The average student goes to church on Sunday and is taught the Golden Rule. f'Thou shalt not kill," He comes black to school on Monday and' is taught how to kill his fellow men in the mfost cold blooded, scientific manner, both with gun and the swords. He will undoubtedly see the inconsistency of things but as he goes to school I-ive days a Week and to church but one, he will think his chool five tims as important as his church, "Thou shalt kill" live times as important as "Thou shalt not kill" and that his commander is live times as important as his God. i Pk P14 Pk Pk STAY WITH IT. a Every year when graduation days roll around, there are a number of students who are dropped from the list of the Senior students who will receive diplomas. .This year the number of these boys and girls is unusually large, for in a class of over one hundred and ten fourth-year students, only eighty will graduate. This shows a sad lack of 'purpose and of good hard application on the part of the thirty or m-ore students who will either have to come back next year or will leave high school after having ipracE6llyT'waste'd four years oftheiflifefi Some may say that this is not a waste of time-that they have learned something from part of their subjects, at any rate. That is partly true, for they may have learned a few facts, but the greatest thing of all they have not learned. "What is the greatest thing of all?" you ask. The art of applying themselves so that they may go through the high school in Eleven the required time, and not have to take five years to dfo what their classmates have d-one in four years. Many of these people who are not going to graduate this year have been heard to remiark pensively, MII I had only realized when I wars a Freshman or a Sophomore how important it was to earn every credit, I might have graduated, but it's too late now." Yes, it is too late for them, but it is not too late for all the remaining sudents in this school to take notice, and to act accordingly. Every junior, every Sophomore and every Freshman should take a few minutes to consider whether, when it comes his turn to graduate, he, too, will be one of those who has been forced to see his classmates and friends graduate and go into college or the business world without himz. Even although this is the end' of the school year and your mind is full of plans for vacation pleasures, just take a little of your valuable time, look up your credits and see exactly where you stand. Then make up your mind that you are going to get all your subjects next year, and are going to graduate when you should and you'll enjoy your vacation equally as much and will know how to start right in September. Dklklkik GIRLS A girl is a young maiden endowed with a peculiar attractiveness and a fondness for bon bons and jewelry. Take a very pretty girl and place her on a desert island, and in less than a week the desert island would be covered with the foot-prints of two or three hundred bipeds of the masculine gender. To capture one of these specimens of femininity is a comparatively easy matter. Almost any bashful young man, when properly schooled to look pleasant and speak cleverly, can effect the capture of a girl who looks like a million dollars to him. Of course, he must be dressed to fit the occasion. If the girl attends moonlight dances, hire an evening suit and part the hair in the middle. If she adores cow-boy hlms, find a wide- brimmed sombrero and choke the neck with a bandana. If she is a racing bug, hire a jitney-bus and wear goggles. When you have succeeded in picking off the prize, make no effort to keep it. The more these queer creatures are loved, the less they care for the sensation-from the same lover. If you would win fame and acquire a bank account, put your heart in the ice-box and steer your course away from the ladies. But if you would enjoy life-think it over. After all, pigs is pigs. Boys will be boys. But girls are inexplicable. I Viz Twelve V ' -crrrxxf 1 M Q GRADUATES g k Q at J f A 'X LJ Ruth Lydia Single Academic Mildred L. jenkins Academic Lucille E.

Svvnnriia HVVANTED-A young lady of good character to serve punch at Summer Dances given by a group oi High School students at Oak Park. References required. Apply at 136 W. Magnolia St., Mrs Sterret, patronessf' She read it again for the twentieth time. jumping up, she cried, 'fI'll do it!" and dartedfrom the room.. "How do you do? Is this Mrs. Sterret?" She feltweak and had some misgivings as she beheld the large pompous lady who held the door open for her. '4Yes, this is Mrs. Sterretg anything I can do for you P" "I am Dorothy Donnell, and I have come to answer this ad." With this, Dorothy held up last night's "Stockton Record," opened to the 'fWant Ad" section. , "Well, Miss Donnell, you had better come in and we can talk it overf' Dorothy heard Mrs. Sterret reply in a patronizing voice. "Mrs, Sterret, I will take the position ii I can keep my identity unknown. I am a High School student and my life would be made miserable if I were known. To avoid this, I can dress to suit the dance. I can be a Spanish girl, a Japanese, a Flower girl and a great many more disguisesf' Dorothy began without hesitation. . "Your references are more than I could wish and if you desire it you may have the position during the summer months," and Mrs. Sterret gave her the necessary papers to sign. The boys and girls had begun to arrive and Dorothy was in her place, ready. Dorothy Donnell had chosen the Spanish Senorita as her model for the first dance of the series. This costume seemed to lit her style of duty better than any other. All that was evident and could be used to identify her, was her beautiful golden brown hair massed' high on her head. The First dance had begun. Dorothy kept time with the music. She saw a couple coming after a glass of punch, who-m she recognized as Adriane Demarest and 'Eleanor Goodrich. Elearnor seemed quite curious to discover the identity of the Spanish Senorita, but Adriane .,..g ,-:. I -1.,. ,.,,,--,,., .gk ',.i.' I I f ffm! .,.'f Y X I - I Ci gd 2 - M ....

"Mrs, Sterret, you have said you would do anything for me," Adriane began in his most pleading tone. I "And so I will. You know you are my favorite," beamed Mrs. Sterret, "what is your wish PU I "My dear Senorita, allow me to present you to my favorite," Mr. Adriane Demarestf' and with that Mrs. Sterret left them. "May I have just one dance ?" he pleaded. "Of course not, . Mrs. Sterret wishes me to serve punch," Dorothy laughed. "Whats the use of being a favorite if no good comes of it? What dance can I have if I fix it up with the lady?" "Somewhere,near the middle to relieve the monotony," while she served someone else. Toward the middle of the evening Adriane came running toward her. "She will relieve you during two dances if you wish." HAH right, this one and the last, I guess." At the next dance Adriane was not quite so lucky. Mrs. Sterret allowed her three dances, but as Flower Girl she had more admirers than as a Spanish maid, at least she favored more. Adriane finally got the last dance and asked to take her home. She refused, saying that he would find her out if she allowed him to, and at the end of the dance slipped away before he could look around. On September 3rd, 1914, the R. 0. R., as they were wont to call themselves gave the last dance of the season. It was their most elabor- ate affair and a masquerade. The girl at the punch bowl was there as Martha Washington. Everyone was enjoying himself except Adriane. As he saw the "Senorita,H as he still called her, dance and Hirt with I-Iarold Goodrich and Maurice Sterret, a nephew of Mrs. Sterret, he wondered what enjoy- ment was left in life. But as he got a glass of punch she stopped talking with Harold Goodrich long enough to say: t'You can have the last one, Adriane, as usual, if you wish." "Of course, I wishfl he answered quickly," is that all?" But Dor- othy was laughing at some joke of Harold's and hadr forgotten Adriane. Dorothy made up for all the neglect when the last dance came and Adriane was consoled. I-Ie begged to find out who she was so he might continue their friendship, but she was determined he should not. "Do you know Nella Walker, a Senior at high school? She will deliver any message that you have to send. I will answer them. One thing more so that you may identify me, if you try. My eyes are the same shade as my hair," and Dorothy Donnell slipped out of Adriane Demarest's sight, but not his mind. - School had commenced. Adrian looked for Nella Walker, and finally found her sitting by the window in the study, talking to a small crowd of girls. Adriane closely surveyed each one, but none looked like the "Senorita." Nella came nearest to it, but her hair was too dark to match the golden brown of the girl at the punch bowl. I-Ier eyes were darker, but Adriane had never seen Dorothy's eyes so could not rtell. I-Iefhad, 1'roweverTseen hefgolderfbrowniihair ma'sTsEd highupon her head. He beckoned Nella aside and begged her to tell him Dorothy's name. She refused, but said she would take a note to-the "Senorita." She was in the study the third period in the morning, also the hrst in the afternoon, and so was Adriane. Adriane became interested in Nella Walker, partly to hear of Thirty-Five Dorothy and partly for her own personality. Adriane wrote a note to Nella and threw it across a couple of aisles. Nella picked it up, put it in her pocket, and was studying diligently when the ever-watchful study teacher, Mr. Toms, appeared, but seeing every one 'studying he went back to his desk. Nella opened the note and read: "df if 'F Have tickets to the Yosemite tonight. Will you go? VVill call at 8:15 if you will. X tk X" Nella wrote: "Will be glad to go. 8:15 suits me. Thanks." She folded it up and suddenly decided she needed some ink, left the note on his desk on her way after the ink. At the theatre Alexander answered Adrianeis question. Adriane asked if he would ever see his "Senorita" under ordinary circumstances and without a mask. Alexander told him he would, thus putting new life in him, but suddenly spoiled it all by telling him to beware of a light- haired friend who was also receiving notes from the "Senorita." Adriane was so gloomy that Nella declared she wished she had accepted Harold Goodrichis invitation instead, and refused to come with him again unless he livened up a little, which he did but in anger. "Yes, you, too, turn me down for Harold Goodrich. The "Senorita" has a light-haired friend. Harold Goodrich and I part company right here." and on he raved. Next morning Adriane wrote a long letter to the "Senorita." Dear "Senorita:" Alexander told me I would find out who you are. Will it be soon? Tell me, do not keep me in suspense longer. The first part of his answer made me happy, but he also told me you were writing notes to Harold Goodrich. Is that so, and why didn't you tell me? Yours, Adriane. Dorothy studied long over the answer that would show Adriane that she could write to Harold and still remain a friend of Adriane. Finally, she decided to lay the case before him and let him use his own judgment. . Dear Adriane: As Alexander usually is right, I guess you will soon learn my identity. As to the other matter, you did not ask me before if I was writing to Harold or I should have told you. These notes stand for our conversation, would you have said anything if I talked to Harold? Think about it. As ever, "Senorita." Adriane did think about it until he saw that she was right, but that did not keep him from having unpleasant thoughts of Harold. Adriane had given up the idea of taking the "Senorita" anywhere so enjoyed life with Nella as his partner. Twice a week they enjoyed the Lyric photoplays, and on nights when they had no studying to do, Adriane spent them with Nella singing the old high school songs. Nella and Adriane were both planning to graduate in june and examinations were taking most of their time. All Adriane had, to remind him of events that had happened last summer, was a box of letters tied with a blue ribbon. Adriane was seeing more and more of Nella and finally came to the conclusion that he loved her. Before he said any- thing to her about it, he decided to see whether he had forgotten the "Senorita,' or had just been carried away with other things. So he wrote, asking her once more to reveal her identity. I-Ie was to go away when he had graduated and wanted to see her once at least. She consented to go to the dance given by Eleanor Goodrich in honor of the graduates Thirty-Six It was to be a masquerade and was to be in the high school gym. She decided to come as a Spanish Senorita again. When Adriane say his "Senorita" again, he realized that he had not forgotten her but was infatuated with Nella. When the time for un- masking came the "Senorita" and Adriane slipped out. She refused to unmask and show him who she was, though she told him she was Dorothy Donnell. "You will always be 'Senorita' to me," Adriane mused. As they were speeding along in his car towards Dorothy's home, he became desperate, and leaning over, he whispered, "Dorothy, 'Senoritaf I love you! I must see your face," and took off the mask. I-Ie gave a cry of gladness, for the "Senorita," the girl he loved, was Nella Walker, the girl he thought he loved. VVith Adriane's kiss on her lips, Dorothy Donnell and Nella Walker became one, and the mystery of "Senorita" was solved. -Elizabeth Duffy, 'l6.

A., '17j Thirty-Seven Ihr illurking Elghantnm Marcenthaw decided that if he remained much longer in his present position he would never be able to move again. No sound of his pur- suers reached his ears, so he set out along the creek bottom as silently as a hunted animal. He had gone a hundred yards, perhaps, when, after ducking beneath a low hanging bush, a strange sight met his gaze. Bending over a poolin the creek, one arm resting upon a protuding rock to support her, the other extending a bucket beneath the water, was the phantom wrhich he had chased the night before. What a picture she made! I The skirt of her faded red calico dress was playfully puffed up by the fitful gusts of wind which brushed it against the green ferns and clark tree roots. Her skin was coppered by the summer sun and autumn winds. Her black hair fell brokenly about her in crimpy wave- lets, the sun casting little golden arrows in circles about it. Marcenthaw thought of a deer he had once seen drinking at a lake. Having filled her bucket, she turned and faced himg then for the first time he saw' her eyes. Marcenthaw felt a numbness come overf him and his face was the face of a man who has seen a ghost. It was not because she had screamed and run from him as if he had' been a wild beast, it was the picture of her eyes. They were pathetic eyes, cool, calm eyes at times, he was sure, but now they were eyes like burning craters whose Ham-es leapt upward. Even with the brief glimapse of those eyes he had, he could never forget. His thoughts were cut short by the nasty spat of a bullet close by and in an instant he had lost himself again in the dense brush. A H. M., 'l8.

Thirty-Eight 1 Erauig Hvrann illrvrklvz Marie thought, as she pinned up the last stray lock of curly black hair and gave the new pink dress a few little finishing touches, that she was the most beautiful girl in the county and her heart Huttered as she realized that even now Robert was waiting in the parlor below to introduce jack McCray, a popular and' wealthy young fellow home for vacation from college. There were three sisters in the family-Grace, who had married several years before, Marie, the family beauty, and Georgia, the ugly duckling. Georgia knew that she was considered the failure of the family as far as looks went, but it mattered little to her, for she would rather have a speckled nose than to pay the price of beauty with beauty sleeps and various lotions. So as Marie entered the parlor she smiled her most charming smile, the one she hadi practiced for her own and the mirror's benefit so often of late, and said to herself, "My, isn't he handsome!" But as her eyes rested on her sixteen-year-old sister sitting Turkish fashion, delightfully at ease on the floor, amusing both Robert and ,lack by her witty speeches, she ordered her witfh a miost coquettish frown and an affected shake of her fingers, "to get up off the floor and go out to help mother with the dishes." As Jack left that night, he asked if he might call again, and Marie, smiling assent, said, "As often as you like." So through the summer months he was a frequent visitor at her home, more frequent than she knew, for often when she "slept" he and Georgia rowed, played tennis, or took long hikes over country. , And one day, after one of these "hikes," Georgia came home, her freckled little face flushed crimson, her already somlewhat snub nose tilted more than usual, and a college "frat" pin carelesslylpinned on her dress. Marie, however, did not see or know any of this, and uncon- sciously thought it wasshe, alone, wfho was the object of Iack's visits. The night before he was to return to college, he asked Marie and Georgia to go to the theater with Robert and him. On the way they passed a beggar w-hom Marie refused to give a dzime, but Georgia gallantly dropped her gold pin she had won for tennis. Jack hung behind a minute to buy back the pin, and afterwards lovingly put it in his vest pocket. Not until then were Marie's eyes opened.

"No, it was all my fault," sputtered "Huskey', Craig, the "Staffs" best reporter, as he tried to regain his footing after running straight into a regular little fairy queen. She was dressed in the neatest pink dress, and her cheeks were the finest match you could imagine. He had just been placed on the year's most sensational case, and was hurrying through one of the big parks trying to think of some possible clue when the collision occurred. The case was about an automobile accident inwhich an old lady had been run over and killed while the driver had gotten away before anyone could find out the number or any definite evidence, now Craig was on the trail to see what his reporter's talent could pick up. Before he could get his balance she had disappeared d'0wAn a side path and was out of sight. He must see her againg he couldn't go on with his work with that faint glimpse of such a wonderful little creature. His search through the park was fruitless, however. Finally he had to stop to get his breath, staring at the only clue she had left- a little silk handkerchief, with the initials M. S. in the corner, which she had dropped in her excitement. But this would never dog he would never solve his case standing there gazing at a handkerchief. He hurried on to Woodthill Avenue bridge where he heard the woman had been killed. "Gosh, but it was done in a jiffy. Why, Fat, if yer could only have seen the way it was. There was that oldi woman chasin' right across the street and wouldn't get out of the way for nothin'g then smash, right into her went the machine and finished herg just that quick?', Vlfas it a clue? Huskey listened. He had just overhead what a ragged newsboy was telling his pal. He stopped as if to light his cigar and caught enough to convince him. "An' the way the car made its getaway was great, but I know who she was fer I sell her a paper every mornin'." "Say, you, give me a paper," called Craig, then pulled' the youngster to the office scared half to death. "Central, South 5436 please. Yes, yes, 5436" "Hello, Tom? Great. Say, chief, come over right awayg I've got the whole thing for' you. Yes, hurry up about it, too. What? Oh, yes, this is 'fHuskey" Craig. I just got the dope on that auto case. Come right over and you've got it cinched-." Craig had found out from' the boy the address and the whole story. Now he would have the detective chief cinch the whole matter. "Yes she's in 869. And mind you that you don't forget she's a murderess.'L.The editor dispatched..Craigfthe next morning to interview Miss Southwell, the young lady who had run over the old'woman. No one would ever believe that she was able to do it she was so beautiful- at least that was what they told Craig. "Aw, she won't run over me like she did that poor helpless old woman, I'll pull the whole story out of her." He hurried to the jail and was shown 869. "Now,,' he chuckled up his sleeve, "I'll show her a few things." He pushed open the door, but stopped like a shot when he saw who was inside. There, Forty-One hudvdled up in the corner of the cell, was his little Pink Lady, her cheeks all stained with tears. "My God! You?" With that he was out of jail and calling a taxi. "Gut to VVoodhill Avenue bridge, hustle!" It was no time until they out to the bridge and had found the little newsy who had furnished the evidence the diay before. I-Ie didn't even take time this trip to buy a paper to get on the good side of the boy but shoved him into the taxi and rushed back to the oflice. "Hello, Lockwood-this Attorney Lockwood?" "Yes," altogether too slow for Craig. f'This is Walter Craig of the "Star." You are on the defense for the young lady they have up for that auto trouble? Great, I have some of the best evidence you ever heard of. Can I see you in about- or right away if I come up EW "Yes, certainlyjy quick enough this time to satisfy Craig's excite- ment. Two weeks later the tiresome trial was over. The jury hadi been out for three hours already. The door opened and the foreman of the jury took his place. "We, the jury, find Miss Marion Southwell not guiltyf' , Of course Craig had to have several "interviews" with Miss South- well, and the next timfe that her name appeared in the "Star" Craigis name was in one ,corner as Assistant Editor, while her name appeared in a little notice which proved to be the last time it was ever printed as Miss Marion Southwell.

A A feature of the work this year has been the swimming. Forty-eight boys could not swim in September and by Christmas all except four could cross the tank, a distance of twenty feet. We trust those four will make it before june 23, l9l6. All boys in the Freshman and Sopho- more years will be equipped with life-saving ability and be able to resuscitate one who has been drowned. Thus we feel that the pool has amply justified the expenditure necessary to build it. The department needs more equipment to enable bigger and better accomplishments, and we trust the near future will see installed: two tennis courts, a handball court, a basket ball court, and perfected track equipment. VVith these for next year a greater effort can be made to give every boy an athletic hobby. The trend in physical education is to incorporate more and more into the schedule, athletic games, and activities with emotional content, We have to a slight degree followed this trend. Next year we will inaugurate a much needed branch of the Work, a course in personal hygiene and first aid. This will consist of one lecture each week added to the two periods in the gym. The big problem in our athletic world is to so arrange it that every one is given an opportunity to enjoy good wholesome activity. The winning varsity basket ball -team is an excellent thing, but a system that develops just that one team and allows and fosters no other is doing a grave injustice to the rest of the student body wholesale competition is what we want-with our varsities as example and helpers to our less experienced participators. For a starter a union athletic emblem and society would be splendid, making winning weight team men and second variety men eligible--this society to be fostered and guided by the Big S. O 2-Xhuvrtiaing Qllaaa Burn lgrartiml mnrk The success of the Sixth Annual Senior Play, "A Midlsummer Nights Dream," was partly due to the creditable manner in which it was advertised by the Advertising and Salesmanship class. This class, the first of its kind at the Stockton High School, was organized last fall under the capable direction of Mr. Lloyd D. Barzee. The majority of the class have never had any practical experience in this work before and took a great interest in planning out the cam- paign for the play. i - They dlesigned and blocked out 100 'large posters and 250 artistic Forty-Four window cards which they distributed in appropriate positions about the city. The cut of Shakespeare, which appeared on the window cards, is an original drawing by Harold Gumfpert, a member of the class. ' In addition to the posters the class wrote several feature stories about the play which appeared in the daily papers. The material for these stories was gatheredl entirely by the students themselves, who then w'rote the articles. Considering that the work is the first of its kind to be attempted by the class, it mfust be said that the Senior Play was exceedingly well advertised. l Ak :se as :sr igigh Svrhnul iligrrum Olnnrnv The third year of the Stockton High School Lyceum' Coure was the best yet given. The program, which was unusually entertaining and instructive, consisted of the following seven numbers. Tuesday, Nov. 9.-The Apollo Concert Company. These tive ver- satile entertainers gave an excellent concert with their varying com- binations of piano, saxaphone, trombone, Violin, banjo clarinet, flute and oboe, which numbers were interspersed with vocal selections and interpretations. Wednesdlay, Nov. 24.-Albert E Wiggan, the "apostle of Efficiency," gave a most interesting and instructive lecture on "Eugenics or the Science of Being Well Born." Friday, Dec. l7.-Oxford Musical Company. This mixed quartet of professional vocalists gave one of the most pleasing concerts of the season. Their closing num.ber was an adaptation of the "Mikado," presented in costume in a most creditable manner. Monday, Jan. 31.-judge George Balden, the well known jurist of Massachusetts, delighted' a large audience with a most witty discus- sion of "The Needs of the Hour." The lecture was considered one of the best ever given in Stockton. Tuesday, Feb. 15.-Frederick Wards, the distinguished Shakes- pearean actor and lecturer, gave a recital of "Macbeth" in his inimitable style. The gallery was packed with High School students who were greatly pleased with the readeing. Monday, March 20.-Sidney Landon proved himself to be a. most unique entertainer. In his "Types of Literary Men," he presented a living and realistic representation of many of the great names in litera- ture.

Forty-Five Svtnrktnn High Svrhnnl Agrimltural Gllnh The Agricultural Club is one of the principal means of interesting boys and girls in farm life. This tends to de- velop better farmers and to improve conditions on the farm as well as to esablish a better rural citizenship. The Stockton Agricultural Club has made an excellent record although only a few of the boys have taken part in it. Its fame has spread not only over the county but also over the state as one of its members las year was ta prize winner in the contest and was among the number who were taken to NVashing- ton, D. C. The transcontinental trips made by the winners of the agricultural contests afford great educational advantages to those fortunate enough to head the lists. The students are given an opportunity to see the people and the farm- q1J Live stock Classy my In the Garden: ilig SCCUOHS HS Well HS the towns and cities of the dif- ferent states. Many ideas and suggestions bearing on farm life are received and withal a deeper appreciation of the value and benefits of farm life to the individual and to the nation. Moreover, specialized farming is clearly portrayed thus bringing the student into closer touch with the particular branch of farming in which he is most interested. At the same time, the student is made to see that success in this field as well as in any other is attained only through hard work. The practi- cal side, the "hard work" side of farming, is not in any way covered up, but the student is enabled to see through the drudgery the full reali- zation of his highest ideal. NFIB igreuuratinnal Svrhunl Those who saw the Senior Play and who say the excellent programs printed by the Print Shop boys of the new Prevocational School, realize fully that this institution is no longer an experiment, but has proven to be a decided success. It is all the more worthy of comment when we stop to realize that the boys of this school are only of the sixth and seventh grades. Stockton High will be glad to make tl1e acquain- tance of these boys when they enter high school next September. Mr. Jensen, director of the Industrial Arts Department, states also that all these boys when they entered the Prevo last Septemiber were of unanimous mind, in that they did not intend' to attend high school. Forty-Six Q31 Poultry Class By virue of the real need for book learning, demonstrated by the half time in the shop, many of them have come to realize that attending school is worth while. Some of them. have decided to enter Stockton High as soon as they graduate. Printing is not the only shop included. Some of the boys in car- pentry have also been doing excellent Work of a practical nature and the machine shop class organized in February has been giving a good account of itself. For instance the two inch die, necessary for the punching of the Senior programs, all ready referred to, was made in the shop. This job, if taken to a tool maker, would probably have cost eight or ten dollars, whereas the material for making it costs a great deal less. Wie understand that the Prevo print shop is asking for an additional press and trust that it is more than a rumor. To be perfectly frank we are hoping that if this press is added it will mean that the Guard and Tackle can be printedl by these boys unless of course We should be so fortunate as to have the addition of a printing plant here in the Industrial Arts Department in the High School.

As the most important body in the school, the students expect a great deal from their Executive Committee, and this year it has undoubtedly fulhlled the highest expectations of the Student Body. Rex Parker, as its president, has worked constantly and earnestly during the term, and is responsible to a great degree for its success, lla Tretheway, vice-president of the Committee, has proved herself a faithful and interested' member. , Lenore Neumiller, Senior representative, deserves praise for the manner in which she has attended to the interests of the Student Body. Jack Raggio Hlled the important position of secretary-treasurer in an admirable manner, keeping his accounts and minutes in a strictly businesslike way. ' Mr. Ellis, as auditor, expended his energy in overseeing the work of his department and his successful handling of the Senior play tickets without the slightest discrepancy was the crowning successf of his efforts. A - Wlilbur Leffler, custodian of the Committee, attended to his duties faithfully and was present at every meeting throughout the year. George Buck, also Senior representative, proved himself a proficient member. He was the author of a resolution providing for the revision of the constitution of the Associated Students. Homer Guernsey and Louis Fox, junior representatives, Leland Hickinbotham, as Sophomore, and George Fortune as Freshman repre- sentatives gave strict attention to the business before them. The attendance of all eleven members has been especially good. The Committee has successfully financed all athletics during the term, and has begun a revision of the constitution, obliteratingall irrevalent and ambiguous portions. It is hoped that next year's Committee will complete the task. ' A if ' ' . 3 - Fifty-One ii! , gzip 534 N, ITE. 1 V? 2 T9 i S S LIQKTS Yi 543 iw ix 1 i i 2 e if 1 as a .

This 'board has more power over the individual student than has the Executive Committee, and at least as much power as the principal, if not more. The control members may suspend, expel, or recommend thelexpulsion of any student whose condluct they deem undesirable to the student body. This position, therefore, contains little honor, but demands calm judgment and sincerity of purpose from every member. Being students themselves, they can render a suitable punishment better than the prin- cipal or even the faculty. Also, since they are students, they are open to criticism and must be careful that they are neither too lenient nor too strict, because they they would be accused 'of being a failure or of being unfair. The diflicult position this year has been entrusted to Rex Parker, presidfent of the Student Bodyg Ralph Herring, Tom Louttit, Louis Fox and Fraser, Young for the boys, Ila Tretheway, vice-president of the Student Body, Mildred jenkins, Marie Park and Nadine McQuigg for the girls. The boys, meetings and trials have been held in the "Guard and Tacklef' room, while the girls have met in the rear ollice. Trials are held dfuring the advisor period, unless the case be unusual and required longer time. . i There has been during the year approximately sixty trials by both the boys and girls, but ofthis number only two were suspended, a fact which speaks well for the conduct of the Student Body as a whole. The committee this year has been unusually efficient, each and every member having worked earnestly and faithfully for the interest of the school, attempting to be absolutely fair and impartial in passing sentence upon the students. mm Fifty-Three Ellie Ein "S" Svnrietg emit the ihnnnlulu Zllrin The "Big S Society" of the Stockton High School was organized four years ago by a group of boys who had distinguished themselves in various athletic contests and were later awarded their block "S," hence the name "Big S Society." The object of such an organization was to promote honest athletics in the High School and to keep the reputation of the school and its athletics above reproach. In both these original aims the society has thus far been highly successful, so that today the name of Stockton High is respected in all of the cities of the state in which its athletic teams have appeared, not only because of their strength but for clean playing as well. Its teams have been adjudged theichampions of Central California several times, and always has Stocktonlbeen able to boast that the position was gained by giving their opponents fair and square fights. But never in all of the four years of its existence has the "Big S Societyl' undertaken a proposition as big, in its fostering of honest athletics in the school, as the financing of the Honolulu trip. When this plan wfas first proposed by Coach Amos Elliot, the society im-me- diately decided to devote the entire proceeds of the annual vaudeville, something which has come to be looked forward to with interest, to the fund. But to make the trip a success, something mlore than money was first necessary-enthusiasm-the real meaning of which in this case meant work. The boys seemed to realize this, and from that time on, not a moment was wasted. Business men seeing that they were really in earnest, were anxious to aid such a good cause. The local newspapers have donated valuable space liberally in bringing the subject before the public, so that by this time most people in the city are fainiiliar with the plan to send eighteen of the local High School students across the Pacihc this summer to make a tour of the islands. This team will be chosen for their fitness andl will be the best representatives that the school can send out. At the end of the school term a survey of the school is to be made and the team chosen. Three things are to be taken into account in the selection of the team-athletics, the students, entertaining abilities, and his scholarship record. No one will be given a place on the team because of his athletic ability alone, for entertainments are to be given on the tour to aid in paying expenses. Neither will a boy be chosen because of his ability to play the piano or to perform certain other feats, for the playing of games is to form another source of revenue. But as strong a requirement as either of these two will be the boys' scholarship abilities, for would Stockton care to send boys across the ocean to advertise the city wholly by their entertaining qualities? No, the boys wiho are finally chosen for places on the team will be boys who are good examples of what the school system of this city turns out. From this, it can be seen that those chosen for the team will be very good representatives for Stockton to send to a foreign country and much beneficial advertising is sure to be received from the trip. NVith greateropportunities before them, in which to live up to principle of promoting honest athletics and to keep the reputation of the school, city, and its athletics above reproach, it is to be hoped that the team of eighteen will return from Honolulu with numerous victories to their credit besides leaving lasting friendships in all of the cities of the islands which they may touch. The "Big S Societyv is composed of the following members at Fifty-Four the present time: Dan Alley, Percy Ahern, VVilliam Barnacle, Van Dennis, Lee Dunne, Ray Dunne, Vincent Dunne, Burchard Higby, Russel Higby, VVilbur Leffler, Dewey Leffler, Mosnette, Gordion Patterson, Newfton Robinson, Wilmerth Hildreth, joseph Stout, Lloyd Burgess, Melvin Parker, jack Raggio, Paul Murray, Lee Hickinbotham. PK lk Pls Pls Behatea emit Eehating Who was it that first cried in accents wildi, "How fickle a thing is public opinionw? At any rate, that is one of the truest sayings possible, and it applies only too well to the High School Debating Club. Long ago, so long ago that we can hardly remember, public opinion said that debating was popular, so a Debating Club was organized and fiourished like the proverbial Bay tree. The subjects were carefully chosen, the debaters spent months gathering data with which to Wipe their opponents off the earth, and finally the debates were given before a packed room full of students and friends. The popularity of the Debating Club lasted about a year, then the novelty had' worn off, and it was no longer necessary to hang out the S. R. O. sign. So it has come down even to our own time, and this year there has been a mod- erate revival of interest. However, what's the use of working hard to prepare your part in a debate, when there is barely a handful present to hear the sonorous phrases fall from your lips? In other Words, that fickle opinion again! This year the students tried everything in their power to awaken the f'beast" to enthusiasm, but it was hopeless. Early in the year an energetic meeting was held in Room: 19 and George Buck Was elected presidlent, Marie Parks vice-president, Jordan Williams secretary-treasurer and Donald McDerm,id sergeant-at-arms. These officers pluckily decided to hold some interscholastic debates. The first of these was the Lodi-Stockton-Modesto. Bernice Frankenheimer and George Buck debated against two students from Lodi, while Jordan Williams and Frazier Young went to Modesto. The subject was, "Resolved that California should adopt the commission form of govern- ment" and the result was defeat for both Stockton teams. This was discouraging, but since both of the other towns had been active in interscholastic contests for several years they resolved to try again. The next tragedy was the Oakdale-Stockton affair, with Elbert Parks and' Herbert Coblentz suffering defeat in Stockton and George Dean and York 'Eves at Oakdale. There endeth the interscholastic debates as far as Stockton High was concerned. One or two debates were held at the school, one in particular being interesting because it was the first. The subject was, "Resolved, that the army and navy should be enlarged according to the report of the general stafff, The affirmative was won by York Eves and George Buck, who were opposed' by Frank Dutchke and jordan Williams. L. As this goes to press the Debating Club has suddenlyaawakened and an exciting debate' is to be held on the subject of United States intervention in Mexico. G. Buck is to uphold the affirmative and H. Gumpert the negative. An interesting meeting is expected. That is the brief history of this honored. pastime in the year of grace, 1915. Let us hope that next year Mr. Public Opinion will be madly crying, "I want to hear an debate. Letis get in and have a real debating club this yearf' Vlihat do YOU think about it? ' Fifty-Five C5112 Munir The High School band this year was not the success that it might have been. However, this was in no way the fault of the members, but due rather to the lack of material, for the band has all year been in need of players for several instruments-especially basses. On this account the boys have not played much before the school, but they have had some very good times practicing at the homes of the various members, and have kept themselves supplied with all the latest music. A "Dutch Band" took the trip, to Berkeley with the S. H. S. basket ball teams in February, and had an enjoyable trip. This year's band was led by Paul Leipelt, while Donald McDiarmid has acted as manager. Theodore McMurray has kept charge of the funds, and Maurice Kennedy has looked after the music. The other active members this year were Ellis Sanderson, Ralph Herring, Howard O'dell, Harold Quail, john Jackson, Arthur Storm, George Garland, jess'Sumlmers, Phil Horstmeyer, Jam-es Barcy and Mr. Amos Elliot. VVe sincerely hope that next term will bring with it ample material fora large, well balanced band, so that the praises of Stockton High maybe sounded the louder. - O Cllnmmmrnnvnt I .

I une 23 Senior Eiatnrg Now that our graduation day approaches and we are about to leave High School, our thoughts turn to the past. VVe think of the four years we have passed through and of the successive stages which have brought us at last to the day of our graduation. Going back over the day we have spent here, the first thing we remember is the day when, with hesitating footsteps and trembling limbs, we first entered the portals of this institution of learning. How sweet was the expression of innocence and awe upon our childish faces as we wandered aimlessly and unnoticed through the scene of confusion in the halls. What a pitiful spectacle we presented' as we lined the wall in mutual protection against the upper classmen, who made fun of our grammar school clothes, and longed to muss the brand new tie, Fifty-Eight which mother had tied that morning with great care, while she was giving her usual advice as to good behavior in company. At last, havingusurived those first awful days, we decided to follow the lead of the upper classmen and elect some ofiicers. This we did, Seth Henshaw being our choice for president and Marie Park for vice president. Being young and inexperienced, our class activities were limitedg our chief occupation-growing accustomed to our surroundings. A few of our men began their athletic careers and we bought a class pennant, which now graces the walls of the gymnasium. The next year, we blossomed out as swaggering "Sophs.'l We were now fully initiated into the ways of High School life. And without delay we re-elected' Seth Henshaw president and Verne Swain vice- president of our proud class. At first, we amused ourselves by tor- menting the Freshmen, this being the ancient and unquestionable privilege of the Sophomoresg but soon, finding other channels in which to center our activities, we entered lustily into the life of an athlete, social butterfly, or book worm. Many notable achievements were made in the Held of athletics by such men as Seth Henshaw, Van Dennis, Mant Sprague and "Bur" Higby. At the end of the year, a very successful and social time was given by the girls in the front hall, which gave a chance for the social butter- Hies to shine. The recordf of the book worms will show for itself in the archives of the "office" Our third year was characterized by many notable innovations in the school. VVhen we came back as Juniors after the summer vacation, a great change had taken place in the High School site, Where once had been a waste of weeds and scrubby trees, a beautiful new science building had sprung upg adjacent to a new gymnasium and Mechanical Arts department were awaiting our occupation and stretching out before them was a spacious level plat of ground which was soon to blossom forth into the turf-field, upon which We pride ourselves so much. For a long time the interest in these beautiful new surroundings almost overshadowed our class activities. As usual we held a class election and chose Mervyn Doyle president and Lenore Nuemiller vice- president. In athletics, we again produced some shining lights, such as Higby, Burton and Kohle. The culmination of our activities was a dance in the "Gym" which was one of the most memorable affairs of the year. At last, having passed safely through the first three years of our High School life, we found ourselves proud Seniors. Under the leader- ship of our efficient president, Elbert Parks and our vice president, Marie Park. we proceeded to make the vear a most memorable one. All the Seniors entered heartily into every activity. The production of the Senior play, Shakespeare's "A Mid Summer Night's Dreami' which was the largest undertaking 'ever attempted by a graduating class, proved to be a crowning glory. Every member in the class participated in it and gave their support with an enthusiasm which was the secret of its success. We will never forget the appearance of our fellow stu- dents as they starred as Egeus, Lysander, Puck, Thisbe Helena, and all the others. And then the Semor pulnicl .Whoswill forgetthe happy dav spent in the hills above Clements, where all enjoyed the sports to the fullest extent. Now, as we are about to graduate. these rernembrances come back to us with double force. And we are sure that they will compare favorably with any pleasure the future has in store for us. , Fifty-Nine Qllazn Snug-1515 Tune-"Good-bye Girls, I'm Through." I XNe're the happiest crowd of boys and' girls in Stockton, Our four years' course of studies now is o'er, On field or at our books it's plain to anyone who looks, That we have patterned after those who've gone before. The bond that holds us never can be broken, It is sealed by friendship's everlasting tie, The orange and the black will be our emblem, And we'll raise our glorious banner to the sky. And yet we'l1 say with many-a Sigh, "Good-bye to dear old Stockton High." CHORUS Good-bye, Stockton High!

Naturally this would require an unusual amount of executive ability, so the journey was offered to the joint editors, Bernice Frankenheimer and myself, who had obtained ourvpositions through our diligent labor and varied experience on the Guard and 'Tackle staff. I However, Miss Frankenheimer was deep in an essay on "The Divorce Laws of the United States." and it was decided that I should m'ake the trip alone.

This was the date of the Senior picnic, and the class turned out about forty strong for the occasion. The picnicers assembled at the High School at 9:30 a. m. and a little later, seven auto loads of dignified Seniors started out amid: the sounds of music, shouting and auto "honks." The party first Went to Clements, where they stopped for awhile, giving those who preferred to ride at the rate of 15 miles an hour a chance to catch up with those who had gone 60 per. From there the machines followed the road until -they came to Comanche bridge, a picturesque spot where the road to Ione crosses the Mokelumne river-a distancefof about 40 miles from, Stockton. Ae more inviting spot could hardly have been found for a picnic and besides the broad, wvinding river improving the scenery, it was put to a more practical use, for the boys went in swimming and the girls waded. And the lunch was simply "banquetiferous!" The day passed Sixty-Five quickly as all were kept busy playing ball, auto riding, Uhikingf' or hanging around the ice cream freezer. The teachers who went along also proved their ability to leave'-their dignity at home, Mr Ellis and Mr Dredge fought between themselves over the food in a most shocking manner, ,nearly coming to blows several times. , The trip home was made in the early evening. All the machines escaped punctures or mishaps of any kind during the day. Those who so kindly furnished and drove the autos transporting the Seniors were: Irma Doan, Lawrence Backes, Beverly Castle, Fraser Young, George Finkbohner,pPhilip Genser and Mr. Dredge. The picnic was certainly a success in every way and much thanks is due the committees in charge and Elbert Parks, the class president, twho arranged the affair, for the' Senior picnic will long be a pleasant memory.

But as it was our first year the upper classmen were slow in acknowledging our accomplishments and some- what inclined to become indignant when we chanrpionediour cause. In truth, it was not until we placed ten men on thefootball team, three men on the baseball, two live people on the High paper, and took the interclass football and track meet that we were respected. The second year found us the upholders of a worthy reputation. VVith Paul Murray as president and Esther Naylor as vice-president, we managed to set the pace for the whole school and gain the scorn of the then juniors and seniors. However, we repeated our same athletic stunts and dominated the social activities. That year witnessed the Sophomorefdance and the famed masquerade. It was "pep" and spirit, thatclass of 'l7. I This year, what a struggle! President Neumriller and Vice-Presi- dent Kerrick led the International Conference which had not only to combat with the Seniors and Sophs, but had to outdo their own repu- tation. It did.

Our Hrst meeting was held to choose our loflicers for the yearg Ralph Hickinibothamf was chosen to lead us, Caroline Minor was elected vicefpresident, Leon Dunne, treasurer, Newton Robinson, sergeant-ab arms and Virginia Thompson, our representative to the Executive Committee. ' p We figured prominently in all athletic and social affairs, being especially noted for the fact that we were the first Freshman class to attempt any social activities of our own. Indeed, the Freshman Tennis dance will long be rememlberedv by those who were fortunate enough to attend the aifair. After returning to our second year of High School as wise Sophomores, we elected Roscoe Clowes president, Virginia Thompson vice president, Dewey Lefiler treasurer, and Newton Robinson was re-elected sergeant-at-arms. Not only does the Sophomore class "trip the light fantastici' with marvelous skill, as we demonstrated at the Sophomore dance held last November in the "gym,,' but also it is the leading class in athletics. The Sophomore class won the cup at the Interclass Track Meet, easily defeating the other classes and disap- pointing the juniors in their expectations. The outlook for the other cups is also very good for the Sophoinores. In fact, we think we are very promising. just "Watch Us Grow."

S. Hardacre QRajahj. The Alumni is a school's greatest asset, foruponit depends in a large measure the schoolffs success and reputation in the world atlarge. Vtfhen a man oriwoman, has achieved fame in the workshop of the world, the public's first inquiry is, "VVhere did he receive his education'?,' for in his education was laid the foundation of his success. - Stockton High Schoollcan boast an Alumni that has brought an enviable reputation to the School. Its members have been workers in the uopbuilding, not only of Stockton and San Joaquin County, but over the entire State and beyond the bounds of California, until Stockton High School stands foremost among the educational institutions of the Vtlest as a moulder of men and wiomen of the highest calibre. But the conclusion cannot be escaped that the Alumni of many schools and colleges soon become so scattered and separated that the school or college is completely forgotten in the hurry and bustle of the world with the most perfect indifference. But once a year, when the time arrives for another group of graduates to join the throng of the Alumni, a meeting is held, at which meeting it is conservative to say that less that five per cent of the school's graduates are present. The prime reason for this is indifference, and it is this indifference that must be overcomxe if the Alumni is to be a success. There is always something to admire.. in a-group -of "old grads" throwing their hats and tearing their hair ata football 'game or a track meet, and the pity of it is that there are not more who are interested in the schooleand its activities after the books are closed and the desks forsaken.

Levy will be kept in everlasting remem- brance in the Stockton High School by reason of the generous gift of his devoted parents, Mr. and Mrs. Max Levy. In loving memory of their departed son, they have provided a perpetual scholarship at the University of California, yielding S100 annually, which will be awarded in june of each year by the faculty to the most deserving member of the graduating class. The awlard will be made on the basis of scholar- ship, character and need. The amount will be paid by the Board of Education on the first day of each and every month, beginning September 1. 'Special application blanks and circulars of information have been prepared which are headed with an autograph signature of the deceased. The principal is also having a certificate of award made, which the recipient can preserve as he does a diploma or other honors. A list of students receiving the scholarship from year to year will be preserved in the library at the top of which will be a photograph of himl in whose name the gift is made. The scholarship is proving an incentive to the students of the lower classes, some of wrhom are already looking forward to the time when they shall be candidates for the honor. Scholarships which have been established in such number at the university by high schools and by individuals are not at all considered charities, but rather as Worthy honors for any one to try to attain. The names of the applicants are kept in confidence. The winner, onlyg will be announced gich year at the commencement exercises. Seventy-One Student Activities Ji i f ,. . -f,i,1,.,, a t 1Huhlir Speaking Obrraainnn l The public speaking students have mad'e several appearances this year, each presentation having been an improvement upon the last. The course, under the direction of Miss Minerva U. Howell, though novel. is one of the most practical and instructive in the whole curricu- lum. If the student body and the general public do not yet realize its full value, the ambitious orators do. Neither does the uninitiated always understand the untiring efforts put forth by the youthful speakers in order to produce only mediocre results. To say what you mean, in the words you want, is not an easy thing to do and to know what to say, and when and where to say it, is an art seldom attained by even the most finished speakers. Of the millions of speeches manufactured annually by politicians, reformers, professors or attorneys, hardly three are perfect in all details. An extemporaneous talk, or a polished oration requires knowledge thought, assurance, tact, voice, action, languagggngenuity and' training. Or, in other words, study, persistence, diligence, detegination and fair- ness, combined with a level head and average ability, are all necessities for the one who aims for success upon the rostrum. Towards these ends the class has labored, and has received the essentials upon which to buildl a more finished product. ' lfpon Tuesday, October 19, the pupils made their first appearance in public, being introduced by jordan VX'illiams, who stated that the purpose of this assembly was mere entertainment. Percy Ahearn, who spoke on "The difhculty of home study," related in a clever manner his personal woes. Next came Mant Sprague upon "How m-otion pictures are producedf' Interesting and at perfect ease before his audience he held- their attention until the very last moment. The second appearance upon December 1, 1915, had a more serious purpose in view. Grace Nelson in a sincere and forceful manner, advised the lower classmen not to neglect their subjects, and thus to avoid "cramming" in the later years. She closed with a plea for more enthus- iasm in student activities. Chairman Eves next called upon Leslie Blair, who tracer the life of Booker T. VVashington, telling of the hardships he endlured, and the obstacles he overcame. Leslie proved an interesting speaker an-d held his audience spellbound. The last speaker, Tom Louttit. in his characteristic style, gave an original and forceful talk upon "Smile" His words had effect, his fellow students smiling from ear to ear. However, it was upon Wasliington's birthday that the class made its first truly brilliant showing. Among those who spoke were William Faulkner on "The statesmanship of Wfashingtonuv and Tom Louttit on "XYashington as a Dreamer." 1 But if VVashin'gton's Birthday was good then the Peace day exer- cises were still better. Upon May 18, all the speakers made an excellent talk to an audience of over 900 students and visitors. The speeches were all exceptionally well done and of some it may be safely said that these speeches will be remembered for a few years in the records of the public speaking class. "Peace versus Pieces," in which the speaker covered in a general way the main' topic of peace, was well handled by Percy Ahearn. "Peace Through Preparedness" was the subject of a talk by William Seventy-Four Faulkner. Vlfill. Parks spoke on ."The VVaste of VVar.,' John Welter gave his version of "Military Training in the Public Schools." York Eves told of "The Heroisni of Peacel, which shed an en-tirely new light on the question. George Buck spoke on 'fVVhat Roosevelt Has Done for the Establishment of Peacef, The final speaker was Tom Louttit, who summed up the question, "International Peace-VVill the World Ever Attain It?" This speech caused more than ordinary comment and we print it in full. . v "INTERNATIONAL PEACE--WILL THE WORLD EVER ATTAIN IT?" Speech Delivered by Tom H Louttit on National Peace Day, May 18, 1916. Upon a day when civilized nations are fighting one another, when you and I, in fact, when everyone is thinking of preparing for war, not for peace, it would seem that he who were to speak on "International Peace" must confess it to be only the fanciful dreamvof a group of idealists. Peace societies have failed, the proposed International Court has apparently crumbled, soldiers are encamped opposite the Hague. Yet,,,I say, world unity will come. One assurance of this is supported by history. Long 'ago men formed clans, clans united into tribes, tribes composed nations. It took humanity a million years to reach that development. But even primitive man' knew the power of unity, and conquered. the hindrance to his purpose. So it is today. VVe all realize the great benents of international peace. VVe all desire it, not our inclinations prevent, but massive obstacles must be overcome. ' Time and space must be bested. Against such a wall, the genius of a million men have struggled. The locomotive, the steamship, the automobile, the aeroplane, telegraph, wireless, telephone, the newspaper have destroyed the Wall. For this morning, the 'American seated in his easy chair, reads of the Chinese rebellion, the European struggle, the Grient, the Occident, the Arctic or the Antarctic is before him. Time and space cease to be a factor for consideration. Previously, nations knew not of one another. But with the modern facilities of transportation, commerce has expanded. Exchange of products causes exchange of thought, language, customs. In the Words of Senator'Root,j "It is with nations as it is with individual men, inter- course. association, correction of e-gotism by the influence of others' judgment, broadening the views by the experience and thoughts of equals. accept of the moral standards of a community the desire for whose good opinion "lends a 'sanction 'to the rulfes of right conduct- these are the conditions of growth in civilization. A people Whose minds are not Open to the lessons of the worldis progress, whose spirits are not stirred by the aspirations and achievements of humanity strug- gling the world over for liberty and justice must be' left behind by civilization in its steady and benelicent advance." , V, ,H Commerce creates the necessary intercourse. Consequently, nations arepno longer thought of as a mass of men under a colored Hag, a tdeen or purple bit of froth. Notrnational symbols, but-national char- acters, national personalities are thought of. VVith such an acquaintance national misunderstanding is greatly lessened. . . ' V . These tendencies slowly but assuredly are dlemanding, yes forming the desired permanent International Court. ,The first Hague Conference was nothing. more thanpreliminary. The second, however, established the Hague Prize Court which has been definitely recognized by ,all Seventy-Five nations. This court has power in time o-f war and judges of ocean disasters, damages of the sea and the like. It is the supremve prize court of the worldl and can be appealed to after any national prize court. Q Besides the Hague courts there are many arbitration boards which really used to be compromise boards. Naturally a nation believing it has a just cause for war wants no compromise, but full justice. Lord Alverston started this new theory of arbitration when, in the Alaskan Boundary Question, he decided against his own country. A few years later Mr. Harlan in the Seals controversy -decided against his own country, the United States. VVilliam Howard Taft states, "It is a fearless, clear headed, justice loving court that will command the confidence of the nation and will induce the submiission to claims to it." The arbitration board is approaching this, which is a great step to international jurisdiction. i After the great world courts come the national courts of limited world jurisdiction. The U. S. Supreme Court has this power and has acted with it both in theory and practice. Then there are the three British courts which have the power of decision between the vast British Emzpire and betwieen the Privy Council of England. They are the Supreme Court of Canada, Australia, and South Africa. It is claimed such courts have msore than once prevented .rebellion 'and satisfied public opinion of their fairness. All in all, the whole-hearted desire for peace, the growth of national relations through commerce, the increasing power of international juris- diction, the cry of humanity is conquering. Each new generation takes a step. small sometimes, but firm. The followers of Mohammed, Buda, Moses or Christ pray for peace. VVte labor not in vain. International law, first dreamied of by Grottius in the time of the Holy Rom-an Empire is crystallizing. Law and order, not crim-e and disobedience, peace and prosperity, not pain and poverty. It mlust come, it will come. "Evil shall cease and Violence pass away." "For I dipt into the future as far as human eye could see Saw the vision of the -wlorld and wonders that would be: The war drum throbbed no longer the battle flags were furled, In the Parliament of man, the Federation of the world. There the common sense of most shall hold' a fretful realm, in awe, And the kindly world slumber lapted in universal law." . Azaemhlirn There are several ways of rating a high school, but none more dependable than rating by the character of its assemblies, of which we have had several very excellent ones this year. y Mr. Francis Labadie of New York was the first to delight us this year with his rich humor and rare reading ability. We were probably just a little disappointed- in him as he stood upon the stage with a slightly pained, and not in the least animated expression, while Mr. Garrison presented him. But he stepped to the front of the platfrom and was speaking. It is said that first impressions are the lasting ones, but Mr. Labadie completely bowled over such a law. As his clear, modulated voice explored the farthest corners of the room, his features flashedathrough the whole category of expression. Delighted does not adequately express our appreciation of his efforts-we were captivated. Seventy-Six He has a wonderful dramatic power and possesses the faculty of making his audience forget timeyand place. His readings covered a broad scope of literature, beginning with extracts from the classic "Richelieu" and ending with delightfully humorous and homely selections about the Canadian farmer. That high school students are quick to see and appreciate good things when they come, was plainly illustrated by the goodly number who attended the next lecture, delivered by James McLaren of Pasa- dena, the 'ldramatic orator of California." Mr. McLaren in Scotch costume impersonated most delectably the beloved l'Bobbiel' Burns- an original way in which to present selected jewels from the pen of the Scottish bard. It is a little difficult to read understandingly the Scotch dialect, so students do not always become as fully acquainted as might be desired with Burns. It was therefore a real treat to hear the "Cotter's Saturday Nightil and many familiar poems thus pleasingly rendered. It is a source of real regret that Thomas Brooks Fletcher of'Chicago was unable to address the High School students for a longer time. However, the strict silence maintained throughout the short talk attested the fact that the sudents were alive to the ability of the speaker and to the message which he had to give. Mr. Fletcher speaks in a humorous vein and his personal sketches are directly to the point, even though that point is often alarmingly sharp. A characteriof powerful interest because of his romantic, not to mention dangerous experiences, was Lieutenant Schaltzkopensky, formerly of the Russian army. He took for his subject "Conditions in Russia." The immensity of the ignorance, poverty and subjection of the Russian people, as depicted by a Russian himself, was difficult for us, who are such a wonderfully free and happy people, to grasp. Vlfhen one hears of the wretched conditions of some peoples, it makes him take off his hat, mentally to our wonderful land. 'Mr, Schwaltzkopensky was an escape from Siberian prisons and wore chains which such prisoners are forced to carry upon their legs. The lieutenant had a very emphatic, if n-ot ghastly, way of clanging the chains by taking a long step with one foot and bringing the other to its fellow by a sudden jerk. A Harry K. Bassett of the University of Wisconsin probably carried away the palm ofpopularity this year. He chose no particular subject, but combined lecturing, filled with delightful witticisms, with selections from folk lore. 'Qne of the his most pleasing tales was that of the plapanesestonecutter who prayed to the god Buddha for immense power and who Hnally found happiness in bein-g just a stonecutter, fashioning ornaments for the great god's temple. Mr. Bassett is the possessor of the art of story telling and his charming legends and fairy tales struck the ever reponsive chord in young hearts. C Mr. F. Halton of Hawaii was the last speaker of the year. His lecture on the manners and customs of the Hawaiian people and the beauties of their islands was made most interesting by a great number of stereoptican views. By no means was Mr. Halton's lecture "dry," if one may judge by the frequent bursts of laughter which resounded through the halls. ff f 'r or W 'T' f That ends the tale of those who have made many happy hours for us with their stories gained from the world of experience as well as from the pens of masters. But there have been other speakers who have comre on a possibly more practical mission. Mr. Ridenour each year has madfe out a program for his commercial students whereby they gain invaluable knowledge from the business experience of others. Among the speakers for this department of high school training were Seventy-Seven Mr. Ketcham of the Southern Pacific, speaking on the -"PersonalfTraits or Qualities that make for Business Success", ,Mr. O. C. Eccleston of the Holt Manufacturing Company who took for his subject "Business Organization? and Mr. M. J. Woodward, editor of 'fThe Mail," who addressed the students on "Twentieth Century Opportunities? Hours of song and current events rounded out the program of our assemblies. After one leaves the grammar grades with the daily period of music, he is quite likely-to forget the songs which all Americans love. Mr. Garrison most wisely placed an hour of song on the school calendar last year. Its success was instantly marked, for even the most modern, irresponsible young person is an American at heart, and all Americans love the old folk songs. This year two periods of each week have been set aside for singing,.and the joy which the students take in it may be guessed by the heartiness with which they enter into the spirit of the hour. Current events in pictures, explained by one of our professors, was an innovation this year. It is part of the University of California extension work, the films being sent by the college to high schools throughout the state who are fortunate enough to possess a picture machine. Its worth speaks for itself. A Such has been the character of the assemblies which have helped the high school stu-dfents t-o a broader knowledge of the world of men and events and which has served to awaken a taste for the Finer and deeper things in life. llialliw 1515 - 1515 At nearly every one of the rallies given this year the yelling has been Hne. The students have co-operated with the yell leaders to give much needed support. to their athletic teams. Not only at the rallies but at the games they have yelled their hardest. The girls deserve special credit for the interest they have taken. They can "Give 'em the axe" just as hard as the boys. Ellis Sanderson has proved a very efficient yell leader and deserves much praise. The order at the rallies has been the best that could be expected. Each speaker has been given the utmost attention while on the Hoor, and has been cheered lustily after his departure. Following are synopses of the most important rallies of the year. ' rv r September 10 The first rally of the year was called by President Parker. Fresh- men were much in evidence rushing for seats. Our yell leaders, Ellis Sanderson and Louis Burke, stalked out and did their best to get some "peppy" yelling. Addresses were made by Harold Gravem and Mervin Doyle of the Guard and Tackle staffg Jack Raggio, secretary-treasurer, and Mr. Garrison. , 'September 30 C ' ' A meetingfof the Junior and Senior boys was held in the Assembly in regards to the "Cabaret" the Juniors proposed to give to the Seniors. It was decided to admit only juniors and Senior girls to the cabaret. Sophomores and Freshman were permitted to attend the dance after- ward. i . . . T . October 6 ' . A rally was called forthe purpose of interesting students in the debating, society. George Buck and Jordan Williams made excellent talkslon the subject .,', A , Mr. George Davis of the Lyric was next introduced. He announced Seventy-Eight that he would be on the field to take moving pictures of the team and rooting section at the Woodland game. October 8 This was one of the most enthusiastic rallies of the year-. Captain Leflier introduced the members of the football team who paraded around the Hooriin Hghting costume. Bur Hugby gave a talk full of vim about the possibilities of winning the Woodland game. S October 29 Yell rally. President Parker told us what we had to be thankful for and we agreed with him. Other addresses were made by Captain Leftler and Coach Elliot. The rally was then turned over to the yell leaders who produced results. October 13 Van Dennis, Tom Louttit and Percy Ahearn, three of our favorite speakers, delighted the assembled students with their humorous as well as practical knowledge gleaned while mastering the gentle art of debating. - ' November 26 Rally held for Modesto game. Lots of Njazf, December 3 "Peppiest rally of the year. Everyone yelled. "Doon Parker read a congratulatory letter from Lodi. Professors Toms, Reed and Elliot made excellent speeches on chances of Stockton to win the state cham- pionship from Berkeley. December 7 Big "S" were presented to the members of the best football team in the State of California. Honorary "Sis" were presented to Coach Elliot and Professor Ellis for services rendered. This marked the first appear- ance of "Simp" Hornage as yell leader. December 10 Basket ball rally. Coach Barzee told about the team. Good yelling. December 17p . Yell rally. Yell given for the most popular girl, "Mary Christmas." january 14 In order to arouse interest in the coming Lodi-Stockton basket ball game a rally was called. All speakers urged a large attendance even though the game was to be held at Lodi. The band was present and favored with several 'fpretty" selections. X February 11 Y Rally for weight backet ball with Fresno. Speakers were Raggio, Higby and Hornage. Much enthusiasm. February 28 Track rally. Art Clay told of possibilities in track. B. Higby told of past performances of Stockton athletes on the track. ' March 10 Enthusiastic athletic rally for boys. One hundred seventy-eight boys signed up for various branches of athletics. May 17 F if F F ' . Boys' assembly for industrial arts talks. Among those to speak were Frazer Young, Dan Alley, William Barnickol, Francis Eshback, and john Patterson. . 4 May 19 . There was an assembly of boys for program on industrial work being carried on by Mr. 'Weber and Mr. Love. " Seventy-Nine Snriatl Zllunrtinnz The school has proven to be a center for social functions again this year, for many exceptionally enjoyable events were given: , THE JUNIOR CABARET . ' The most spirited social occasion ever given in Stockton High School started the season. It was that well-managed cabaret, given by the juniors to their worthy "elders" on Saturday evening, October 23d. The first scene was set in the Cafeteria, new at that time, where the students gathered about the tables, coffee, sandwiches, as well as ice cream, cookies, fruits, nuts and raisins being served. During the Heats" several musical numbers were ably rendered by Ruth Lamb, "Dutch" Neum-iller and others. The "Ukelele Quartet" sang a few favorites. Much fun was experienced between numbers by dancing and the throwing of serpentine. This fun continued until 9 o'clock, when the crowd migrated to the "gym," where to the strains of that marvelous Glick orchestra, the dfance began. Delicious punch was served in the north end of the pergola and- Mr. and Mrs. Garrison and Mr. and Mrs. Ellis had already reached the door with their wraps, so everyone took the hint. After many happy goodbyes and honks the junior Cabaret came to an end. THE SOPHOMORE DANCE iThree pleasant hours were spent in the gymnasium on the evening of November 30th when the "Sophs" gave their -dfance. Red and white streamers and other decorations carried out the class colors to full extent. The music was furnished by Miss Musto's orchestra, between dances nothing was more inviting than a "prom" in the pergola where the punch bowl held sway. A number of the Modesto fellows stayed over for the evening to join the dancers. Nor was the faculty forgotten, they 'entered into the spirit, too. ' - THE PUBLIC-SPEAKING BANQUET The attractive Cafeteria of the High School was aglow with Christ- masf colors when twenty-four students in Public-Speaking, with their instructor, Miss Minerva U. Howell, were hosts at a banquet, center- taining as guests a number of the faculty and the Board of Education. The Ukulele quartet rendered spirited music during the welcome to the guests. "Just Toast" was a cleverly handled talk by john Welter. VVill Parks talked on the "Public-Speaking Class," a response being nrade to his addlress by Mildred jenkins of last year's class. "Trusts,,' was York Eves' topic and the 'fModern Girl" was thepsubject of Lois VVen,ger's bright talk. "The High School Boy" was considered by Tom Louttit and "The Dollar Registration" fby Frank Dutschkej. Toasts "To Mother" by Percy Ahearn and "To Dad" by Van Dennis concluded the program prepared by the class. Extemporaneous talks by the other students and the guests of honor followed. An interesting and interested group among those present was a number of the students who last year won laurels in Public Speaking. Eighty HARD-TIMES JOLLY-UP Great fun was the hard-times party. The party will long be remem- bered by the many novelties. Everyone attended in his old rags, which tended to give plenty of freedom. It fell to the girls to do the unusual thing-to "stay it," in a number of cases, to fill out the programs and to find their partners sooner or later. THE FRESHMAN "CRAWL" The Freshman dance assuredly opened the summer season with more than ordinary "pep" In formality marked the whole affair. The decorations, the pretty dresses of the girls, and the blue and white adornment of the fellows gave plenty of color effect, while the beautiful weather, syncopated music 'and enjoyable company added' the touch that will cause the dance to be long remembered. But the climax was produced by the innocence of the "Fres'hies." VVhy that poor old clock-ah! well it afforded some amusement during the sleepy hours for "FatherU Garrison as well as for Father Time to watch the youthful attempt to put one over. But then for the Freshmen, the dance was well managed. U THE JUNIOR-TO-SENIOR DANCE As usual though, it seemed to remain for the Class of '17 to finish things with their dance of the 27th of May. The decorations were a novelty-a huge Hsh net draped from the rafters in the form of an arch and interwoven with green and white streamers and ferns. The class colors were gayly festooned around. Then, too, as an invitational affair it was decidfedly a new idea, myriads of dancers came and the entire faculty was invited to chaperone. The balmy night, the refreshing punch, and the tantalizing music of Dolly Musto's orchestra whiled away the happy evening long before the dancers were ready to say good night. , ' . .,. . f Manual Tfraining Auaemhlien 1 Have you ever thought how little of our work you can actually see the result of? But you can with Manual Training. During two of the boys' assemblies the platform was crowded with all kinds of interesting exhibits from the Manual Training Department. In the respective assemblies, Fraser Young and Ralph Herring introdfuced the various speakers who illustrated their talks on methods by pointing to different blue print plans, tools, and drawing instruments Among the exhibits were mahogany chairs, foot stools, serving trays, hat racks and candle sticks that most any one might covet. The boys proved themselvesrthoroughly fafniliarewitlftheir work asfvvelloas very enthusiastic. Such a display surely will inspire many boys to plan for the Manual Training Course next year Eighty-One .,., ,.,. J", gh ty -T w 0 SENIOR PLAY "MID-SUMMER NIGHTS DREAM Bramatira THE SENIOR PLAY . Perhaps no event in the career of a high school student is looked forward to with as much pleasure and' anticipation as that of partici- pating in the Senior Play, and this year the reward of this long wait was even greater than usual. From all sides come the assurances that "A Midsummer Night's Dream-U was the best performance ever staged by a graduating class of Stockton High School, and the class of 1916 may be well proud of its efforts. p The Senior play this year had more than ordinary obstacles to overcome. After much debate and' argument, when a majority of the class did not favor a Shakespearean play, it was decided to produce the comedy of "A Midsummer Night's Dream." A cast was selected, and rehearsals started, but many obstacles presented' themselves. A bereavement in the family of one of the principals, the leaving school of another, and other things necessitated a recasting, and nrade more work for both the coaches and the students. But in the end, the results made all the extra rehearsals, and preparations well worth the trouble, and no one begrudlged one instant spent ine getting read for the presentation. . The cast might well be called "an all starv one, for each player performed his or her role remarkably well, and no one student could be singled out for individual attention. In the parts of the Duke of Athens and his bride, Beverly Castle and Aileen McCan displayed great ability. Aubrey Howland as "Lysander," Elbert Parks as "Demetrius," his rival. Mildred Jenkins as 'fHermia', and Ardath Van Landingham as f'Helena" all played exceedingly difficult roles with great ease and a "finish" equal to professionals. Harmon Eberhard as "Egeusl' and Fraser Young as "Philostrate,' were also good. 1 . Among the elements which made the play such a success was the fairy singing and dancing and the acting of the fairy group. Harriet McGinn, as the beautiful, dainty f'Titania,' was excellent and Lawrence Backes was an equally good "Oberon.', Une of the most difiicult roles and one most ably presented was that of "Puck" and Margaret Ellis deserves much praise for her clever work as that impish character. Suth Frankenheimefs graceful and finished dancing and attractive costume gained much favorable comment as did that of little Lillian Horwitz, and' the fairy attendants. The group of mechanicals kept the house in constant laughter while they were on the stage, and received hearty applause. Rex Parker as f'Quince,,' York Eves as 'fBottom," George VVhitney as "Flute," Donald McDiarmid as "Snug.', VValter Davidson as "Shout" and Clarence Mapes as 'fStarveling" were really as good as many older and' far more experienced actors. The dancing and singing were both attractive features of the play and the solos of Corinne Mowry, Esta Gallo and Annie Fuhrmann were beautifully rendered. The dances contributed many pretty effects to the play. the dance "In Roseland" being especially goodie ln closing, praise and thanks without end are due Miss Howell, Mrs. Gleason, Miss Halwick and Mr. Ballaseyus for their great interest and patient efforts in behalf of the play. VVithout them it certainly would not have become the success it was. Harold Gravem also deserves great credit for his successful managing of the play Eighty-Three Ls X ig, XG fxx 5 w Q , Vu fafM 10:15 A Vx VAUDEVILLE n E BIG "S TH ENES FROM SC Big "Si" Hauhruille So March 3d, 1916, rolled around-the night of the fourth annual high school vaudeville. Some vaudeville at that, with everyone showing the quality of High School "pep" Tickets sold like the proverbial hot cakes. Many of us got surprisingly near to Heaven and incidentally a number of S. H. S. fellows got a few miles nearer to the beach of war. After an overture, rendered: by the school orchestra, the curtain rose on the first act. f'Bur" Higby and Melvin Rider in natty sport attire trotted out on the stage with all the blaze of regular matinee idols. Vlfith surprising ease they jumped and rolled through grotesque gymnastic stunts, then with gracious smiles, acknowledged the "hands" and withdrew. ' I Miss Lucile Halwick's dancing girls next flitted around in the lime- light. The Misses Esther Edwards, Erline Graebe, Dorothy O'Neal, Edna Todman, Bertha Dockendorff and Ida Kientz made the quaintest and daintiest old fashioned ladies imaginable. With all the grace in the world the Misses Nadine McQuigg, Ruth Frankenheimer and Lily Schlictman in the wee-est pink and blue Grecian dresses danced the beautiful "Moment Musicalef' The scene was beautiful and while the girls danced Terpsichore and her maids seemed not so very far away. The gaiety and dash of the Italian "Tarantelle" was delectably given by the Misses Esther Naylor, Katherine Kerrick, Helen Moore, Dphne Miller, Marion Moffat and La Verne Williamzs. Once more Miss Ruth Frankenheimer delighted the audience with her wonderful grace. In an exquisite little costume she made a charming "Spirit of Spring." A person who hadn't laughed in a month would have screamed Cwith laughter of coursej at those "Jumping Jacks"-Margaret Lauxen, Caro- line Minor, Helen VVurster, Amy and Eunice Grupe, Herm-a Manthey. A little bit of rapid art and a Whole lot of jokes was the stunt of Harold Gum ert and Mervyn Dunnagan. The boys showed excep- tional ability wiiich the audience was quick to appreciate. One need only say that Miss Virginia Ballaseyus presented "I-Ieart Songs" on her violin. It is useless to say that they were delightfully rendered for the quality of Miss Ballaseyus' music is well known and beloved in Stockton. "Breakers of War,,' a one act drama, was a tremendous success. Miss Ruth Single, as the sweet American girl, was charming. The part of the lover, torn between love and duty, was enacted with marked ability by Percy Ahearn, while Miss Zelda Battilana, as a beautiful Italian lady, was indeed a wonderful looking, if heartless, girl, as she vehemently denounced her lover. Miss Mildred Jenkins, an Amferican mother, lacked none of the sweet qualities of the character she portrayed. I "Columbine andl Punchinellof' Ila Tretheway and "Dutch" Neu- m'iIler, made a grand whit." Theirs was a singing and dancing act which might have come straight from the Orpheum stage. Y Clever, thrilling and all likeiadjectivesapply toathe onefact play entitled "duped" Mant Sprague was an ideal and resourceful crook, while Rex Parker made a realistic appearing gum shoe man. No one would ever recognize jack Raggio in the guise of a stately colonel. The professionalism and snap with which the playlet was carried out deserve the laurels which it won. The clear, flutelike voice of Miss Ruth Lamb once more delighted a Stockton audience. Miss Beth Blain accompanied the singer with Eighty-Five rare ability and in a couple of piano solos displayed a remarkable musical talent. r 'VV just like a little bit of the Clark transplanted' was the cabaret ,scene in which the Misses Pauline Edwards, Harriet -Glover, Reba Eves, Leta Huff, Esta Gallo and Viola Henderson took part. A ball room dance, executed by Miss Myrtis Witherly and Paul Murray was an attractive part of the act. K'Rasp and Berry, Nifty Vode-Ville Entertainers," 'KPest"i Gravem and 'fScoop" Sprague, literally brought down the house. "Pest" can dance in a fashion that every one of the common herd can't do-some dance, "Pest,i' old boy. If "Scoop" can't dancer, heis got every one else backed off the map when it comes to singing and "laughing" Two ghostly critters-in plain life Russ Higby and Van Dennis- rounded out the program with athletic stunts that caused the audience to blink, rub its eyes and blink again. It was an act made for merri- ment and it produced howls of laughter a plenty. . Q QQQ ' . a l HH LI ii tr T li it is true that "music hath its charm to soothe the savage beast," then it is an excellent thing to introduce into a high school. You would have thought some of 'the students were beasts, the way they growled ferociously when the First Music Hours were introducedl They said they didn't see the sense of going upto the Assembly Hall to sing "Old Black Joev when they might 'ijus' as well 'uv been studying," and they made many other varied! and unfavorable comments. For several times the fate of the Music Hour trembled in the balance. The boys talked and laughed, for there is an inexplicable feeling among the sterner sex that music is somehow or other, eiiiminate. Finally, however, the old' melodies proved so enticing that almost before they knew it, some of the boys after sheepish looks at their neighbors, broke out in uncertain, .incredibly deep bass tones and then in pure joy at their own voices wanbled' steadrily there after. Thus the Music Hour came-'into 'its own. iEvery two weeks all the school has a chance to singig the first and 'fourth years meeting one week and the Sophs and Juniors the next. The selections are mostly old songs well known to everybodyg but -occasionally 'they attempt something new. Besides these affairs 'in which the whole school takes part, there have been four concerts, free to the public, given by the regular music classes .under the direction. of Mr. Ballysaiyes. These havebeen a delight indeed. The chorus work is very good, the 'selections are well chosen, the- soloists always please, and' the orchestra is not the least of the attractions. Indeed, music is always a delight, and we would have aa ,very hard time getting- alongxwithout it, wouldnit we? .The public has always been very quick to take advantage of these concerts, and the general opinion is the high school is a complete success. . . . .

S., 03 Chico, 0. - Our third league game was with Chico and was one of the fastest games of the season. Neither team seemed to have an advantage 'over the other. After struggling first at one end of the field and then at the other for two twenty-five minute halves the game ended a scoreless tie. S. H. S., 263 Modesto, 0 Another practice game was played at Modesto on the twenty-second of October. This game was an easy victory for Stockton as the score at the end of the game was 26 to O in our favor. S S. H. S., 63 Chico, 3 . 1 The tie which resulted in our first game with Chico was played off at Chico and this was really the best game of the season. Chico scored first when Stagner crossed the line in the second half. This score only served to make our fellows work harder and they scored two tries in rapid succession which won the game for us. By this game we won the championship of the Interior of California. S. H. S., 42, Modesto, 3 In our last game of the season before the Berkeley game we defeated Modesto on our home grounds by a score of 42 to 3. S. H.

Our defeat was probably due to the absence of L. I-Iickinbotham from the game. THE SCORE Stockton- FG FT . Lodi- FG FT, Patterson.

C. 130 pound team and were defeated by a score of 38 to 19. The other five teams journeyed down on the boat, arriving Saturday morning. In the first game the S. H. S. 100 pound team defeated the B. H. S. 100 pound team by a score of 32 to 1. Berkeley didn't have a chance. The second game was another victory. Our 110 pound team smeared Berkeley to the tune of 49 to The third game, a 130 pound contest, was also an easy victory for us. The game ended with the score 43 to 4 in our favor. In the evening we did not come out so well. Berkeley won the Hrstgame by the score of 29 to 15. This was a 145 pound contest. ' The second game was also a victory for the Berkeley team. Their 120 pound team defeated ours by a score of 34 to 19. The varsity game was a contest well worth watching, for it was only after a hard nip and tuck struggle that Stockton finally won by a score of 23 to 21. THE CAPTAIN FOR NEXT YEAR Raggio, one of the best players on this year's team, was elected captain of next year's team by a large majority. Dk H4 as H4 . 'Nm x M ig , fflllfftt ll? ll W 1 rrrrr HL D The baseball season this year has been very satisfactory, for as yet the team has not lost a game. They have but one more game to play. and, if they win that one, they will be rated as champions of the valley. Stockton 3, Ceres 2 The first game of the year was in the nature of a practice game with Ceres High School. It was very close throughout, the issue not being decided until the last half of'the ninth. The feature-of the game was the hitting of Burgess and Baumel. Robinson pitched a good game. i S. H. S. 3, Lodi 2 In our firstpleague game tthis year, Stockton defeated Lodi in a closely contested game. We won the game mainly through the hitting of Sprague, Eachus and Alley and the pitching of Dunne. In the third inning Sprague, Eachus and Alley all scored. P S. H. S. 8, Lodi 1 In our second league game with Lodi we put the Crusher on their hopes for the pennant. Robinson pitched a superb game and everyone landed on the pill hard. S. H. S. made two runs in the first inning which took all 'of thefestarch out' of the Lodi nine. I Stockton vs. Sacramento A game will be played with Sacramento in the near future to decide the championship of the valley. If this game is won those fellows that participated willbe awarded their S. "Here's hoping."- Ninety-Three V ' mar! .gl - L Aiylln ' .,.. IIIA Iiii 5555 "if" uses' 52252 Eiisf' ,ug Egg .1-.-::.s.,.La :u::5-5.,,:! :St i 4 This year marks the birth of the game of tennis in this school. The interest in this sport was produced mainly by the influence of W. E. Allen and Mr. Elliott. At the first of the season a meeting was called which was well attended by both boys and girls. In this meeting Mr. Allen told in a short talk, how the beginner should start to learn the galrte. The talk influenced quite a number of the fellows to join the local club. INTERCLASS TENNIS lnterclass tennis was started this year for fellows who had never played tennis before. It was in the nature of a novice meet. A great deal of enthusiasm was aroused by the presentation of a cup by .Johnson's Sporting Goods House. The cup was won by the juniors, with the Sophomores second, Freshmen third and Seniors fourth. In the first round of the singles, Dennis of the Seniors defeated Dunne of the Freshmen 8-6 and 611. V R. Higby of the Juniors defeated R. Spring of the Sophomores 6-3 and 6-3. The finals of the singles were won by R. Higby who defeated Dennis 6-3 and 641. Spring defeated Dunne for third place. if In the doubles, the Sophomores were defeated by the juniors who also defeated the Freshmen. The Seniors forfeited. . Final score, juniors 10, Sophomores 5, Freshmen 4, Seniors 3. Next year it is hoped that there will be as much interest taken in tennis as 1' QQIN 1 l l lllllll A ll. will ll l The track season this year has been very disappointing, in fact, we have only had two meets and we lost both of them. Although the meets as a whole have been disappointing, there has been some wonderfully promising material developed. 'gCow" Burgess has been steadily im- proving in the broad jump and can always be counted on for at least one first place. He was the star of the meet held with Sacramento, having taken one first, one second, and one third place for a total of ten points. Joe Stout also has been improvingrapidly in the mile. Both of these fellows will be sent to Sacramento for the C. I. F. meet to be held there. Sacramento 97 ya, Stockton 29M Burgess was the only one to take a first place for Stockton in our annual dual meet heldfwithn Sacramento, and .we were defeated by a lop- sided score.

But if on me you turn your back Read straight on and scornill not lack. The love which I have repeatedly expressed for you is absolutely false and my desire to be rid of you grows by leaps and bounds. Each day I am more certain of your despicable disposition and inability to have lofty ideals and manly virtues. You will always be a laughing stock for the world at large and never one who commaands the respect and admiration of friends. Your presence is a source of extreme displeasureito me. When I see you every sense pulsates with hatred. Do not be so foolish as to im-agine I harbor love and a desire to be near you. Your conversation always is disgusting, insipid and rudely impertinent and never arouses the highest and most exalted ideals. Heaven forbid that I should offer you my hand for if we should ever be married I'd be the most miserable creature alive. Do not fancy living with you would be "when dreams com-e true." You will probably not be surprised when I earnestly implore that you will do me the pleasure of keeping out of my sight. I shall readily overlook your trouble to answer this letter. And now goodbye and believe me my antipathy for you is so full grown that I shall never be Your devoted lover. J. VV.,p'15. ,, 4. - A V ' -iff ow bi One Hundred .4 A 0 fvp U?

Of course he profited, but so did We. In fact more money was secured' for the Honolulu trip in this way than in any other. On the evening of the 29th of April the High School scenario Was thrown on the screen, and a pleasing picture it was-the work of Daphne Miller, Marion Moffat and Lois Stroupe. The honors of acting fell to Sylvia Norton and! Tom Louttit, supported by Harriet McGinn and Bur Highby. The Wfhole High saw it. Nuff said. The Lyric is a "moving," progressing theater and by its help the Stockton High put on the first motion picture ever written, acted and photographed by High students inthe whole country of America.

Yet in the midst of joy and peace, While Flora walked the leafy dell, Or Faunus eased the farmer's care, A curse upon the country fell. An evil Fiend, with jealous eye, Disdaining joy and hating good, Crept unseen through the land at will, And wreaked his mischief where he could. The land tell sore, all beings soon died, The two gods, mightily angered, arose To love, and begged him to reveal, And then destroy, the cause oi woes. The fiend was called, then the Father cried, "I cannot kill, but may suppress, Shut in a mountain thou shalt be, And rage at will without redress." Thus spoke the god, so has it been, And even an earthquakes trem-ulous start Is but the grumbling of the fiend Imprisoned within Diablo's heart.'..Q.....g..g..g.................g.q.....g...-....p.10..0.-9.
