In loving memory of their son, Jerome, Mr. and Mrs. Max Levy have
given to the Stockton High School a perpetual scholarship yielding i"pl00
annually, which is awarded in June of each year by the faculty to the most
deserving member of the graduating class. This scholarship is open to any
boy or girl of this institution and is awarded upon the threefold basis of
scholarship, character and need. .
This is the highest honor a student can' attain, since it is the only material
award for excellent work that the Stockton High School gives. Also a list
of students receiving the scholarship from year to year is preserved in the
library, together with a photograph of him in whose honor the gift is made.
The names of all the applicants are never revealedg only the winner is
announced each year.
This year the gift has a special significance, as it was with the Class of
l9l8 that Jerome was to graduate, and it is in their hearts that there still
remains a loving memory of their dear friend and classmate, the first to leave

SERVICE AND SACRIFICE
The class of 'IS is about to leave its high school days behind. With
mingled feelings of pleasure and regret the members have reached this parting
of the ways.
ln past years the future was ours to use as we wouldg to work for our-
selvesg our honors, our joys, our pleasures, and our successes were all that
counted. This year all is changedg the honor of our country is at stakel This
big, beautiful "land of the free" is calling on her men and her women to
support her. California, one of the fairest garden spots of America, is look-
ing to her young men and her young women.
This is the reason why, here in our own little city, though far removed
from the horrible scenes of war, though far removed from our country's
capitol where the cry goes daily forth for men and more men, we can no
longer put self first in shapingour future courses.
Service is the keynote of' today-service and sacrifice! lt may not be
that all our boys will sail away topoor, devastated Franceg that all our girls
will be called to smooth the pillows of the wounded heroes over thereg but
service and sacrifice 'still remain, services for each and every one of us,
sacrifices for each and every one of us. Shorten the war by making them
the thought of each working hour. '
Service is the giving of the best that is in one, whatever be the need.
Sacrifice is the unselfish offering of personal possessions and ambitions.
With service and sacrifice as our passwords, let us all go forth with more
exalted ideals, putting country first in this great struggle.
If the two stones, service and sacrifice, go to make up the foundation
of our characters, the rest of the structure will tower strong and straight.
THE ANNUAL OF TODAY AND YESTERDAY.
A huge volume for a high school class to edit, composed of several hun-
dreds of pages: filled with several hundreds of pictures and drawingsg
containing stories and poetry preferable to some of those published in weekly
or monthly periodicalsg and covered with brilliant scarletg-such is the
annual of the class of nineteen and eighteen of the Stockton High School.
Go back-twenty-two. tyears: .Composed of exactly eight pagesg filled
with thepicturesi of some six or eight graduates, containing one story, a trip
through Switzerland, and one poem, the record.1of.the classy and covered
with the roughestof newspapers 3-such isvthegannual the class of eighteen
and ninety-sizeof' the Stockton l-ligh School. -.'.L 'A '... E Q
There is- a vast difference between-V-thelannualu-of today and that of yester-
day, and as wide as that difference is,-,as unlike the polished book of today,
as' the crude little book of yesterday, just so wide and so different are the
advantages that we, the students of today, have had in comparison with the
students of yesterday. '
We have been taught in a building surrounded by beautiful grounds,
as pretty a site as can be found in all the surrounding countiesg we have
been allowed to study with learned instructorsg we have been given as Wide
a variety of courses as is offered by any high school in the state: and we have
been allowed to mingle with our difficult studies the more pleasing courses
in dancing, drawing, singing, sewing and cooking.
Those pupils of twenty-two years ago were instructed in a small, plain-
looking school-house, set in a, tiny square, and surrounded only by a few
scraggly tufts of grassy their instructors were learned, but few, their course
of studies consisted only of the fundamental principles of educationg they
had no pleasant subjects to mix with their difficult studiesg all were difficult.
Yet, from those six or eight graduates of yesterday have sprung some
of the wisest of our citizens of today, while the fame of one or two has
become state and even nation wide.
As superior as the annual of today is to that of yesterday,-as superior
as the advantages of today are to those of yesterday,-so should the students
of today prove themselves to the students of yesterday.
The question is, will they? That, only time and the members of the
class of '18, the graduates of today, can decide.
THE WAR AND THE GRADUATES
Graduating in nineteen eighteen is vastly different from any graduation
that has gone before, if it be only one year previous. There has come the
time when the sweet girl graduates as well as the young men, do not harbor in
their souls the joys and delights only of commencement, do not think solely
of their pretty frocks, do not have the lightest of hearts, but rather, in their
souls, do they harbor feelings of sympathy and sorrow for those, here and
across the waters, who have lost their dear ones. They cherish under those
still pretty but inexpensive frocks, a great loyalty to country. With heavy
hearts, for those dear comrades over there, but with cheery smiles, they seek
to do their part in the struggle.
So, it is seen that this great world-wide war, in spreading its influence over
civilization, in presenting itself in horrible shapes not only to Europe but to
America as well, has not passed by the little city of Stockton, sheltered and
hidden in the San Joaquin valley, but has made its influence felt here as well
as in the greatest cities of the World. .
Especially has the atmosphere of war hung over Stockton's high school.
It has been made manifest in the little, ordinary, every day things of school
life. The war has made possible the hearing of splendid talks' by renowned
speakers on numerous and intensely interesting subjects-Red Cross, Liberty
Loan, Y. lVl. C. A., Thrift and Smileage. War subjects furnish material for
plenty of themes. Battling with aeroplanes, battling with submarines, life on
the western front and President Wilson's messages.
Not only in the studies but in the extra time as well, does the war form a
part of the students' life. Time, formerly spent in talking in the halls or
roaming around the building, has now been converted into Red Cross time.
ln the end the worker of today gets far more pleasure through his results than
thenplayer of yesterday.
Costumes also have fallen into martial folds. Ginghams and corduroys
have displaced Silks and sergesg old clothes and shoes have been worn in
place of new. '
' Most important of all, the war has done a great deal toward making the
pupils unselfish in placing both time and money at the disposal of their
government. It has made tenderness one of the greatest of their character-
istics, because of the love for their boys that they have and must send forth to
become engaged on this terrible battle Held. Already there are twenty-six
vacant seats in their midst, showing that this many have pledged themselves
to their country.
It has made the graduates think more of their classmates and countrymen
and less of themselves. They have gladly given up some of the little joys of
commencementg they have done away with their announcements and their
cards and invitation, for these are only expensive luxuries, and luxuries should
not be inclulgedlin, in war timesg they have thought it better not to pay an
out-of-town speaker for their commencement address, but have preferred,
rather, to use home talent and save the money which they would otherwise
have spent: they have dispensed with their banquet that they might not con-
sume the food which really belongs to their neighbors across the seag they
have turned over the proceeds from one night of their senior play that they
might help all wounded soldiers over there. i
They have rejoiced in doing these things for by so doing they can help
their government and their boys make the world safe for humanity.
Surely there was never so true an introduction of democratic spirit into the
Stockton High School, as that during the year of nineteen and eighteen.
The time is at hand when we must try to express our appreciation of what
the teachers of Stockton High School have done for us during the last four
years. l say try, for who could express, in a few short sentences, the gratitude
that our class should feel, as we stand ready to face life's battle field. A
We entered this training camp four years ago, raw recruits. We leave it
today, some privates, some officers, according to our efhciency, ready to start
on the great campaign into the future. Thanks to our generals, who have
goaded on the slackers, promoted -those who were deserving, and who now
stand ready to pin the Cross of Scholarship on our breasts, we are ready to
enter the battle of life.
Whether we work our way up to generalships or always remain privates,
we owe our start to the faculty of Stockton High. We are fitted for battle on
land or, sea Cthanks to Miss Davis, the swimming teacherj. We can cook
ourselves into the heart of any man C thanks to Miss Colwellj.
We can express, in the best of English, the most dainty of invitations, or
hurl nouns and their adjectives until our adversary is routed. We can speak
in tongues unknown to many, spout of Caesar in.his native speech, or purr
to you in soft, musical Spanish.
In chemistry we can tell whether you are I-looverizing by analyzing your
discarded tooth-pick. ln history, we can tell you the past, present, and
future, while you wait. ln math-fdear old math, you were a hard nut to
crack, but the meat was necessary to our educational digestionj-in math
we at least know how to divide the yolk of an egg into 25 parts.
Public speaking. Too much cannot be said for public speaking! Knowl-
edge is one thingg to impart what one knows, another. Also, to put up a good
bluff and tell what you don't know-such is the advantage of public speaking.
And sing. We are the finished product in voice culture!
Now who can wonder us for lacking words to express our gratitude?
Leaving our great training camp behind, we follow the procession of those
who have gone before us--marching in khaki to martial airs, or singing and
dancing along the way, as it may be. ' .
For all this we can only voice our gratitude in the words of K. C. B.-
"l thank you." H

Every one has realized, since the very day of our arrival in September of
l9l4, that we are for werej an unusual, an extraordinary class. From the
time that we held our first election and chose, with much wisdom, Ralph
Hickinbotham as our president and Caroline Minor as our vice president, our
superiority was recognized and acknowledged. The success of our freshman
tennis dance and our prominence in the football field, added to our already
glorious name, and reassured the students and the faculty of our brilliance.
Our sophomore year proved that we had gained knowledge, for our elec-
tion and the wisdom of our officers cannot be over-rated. Roscoe Clowes
oliiciated as president and Virginia Thompson as vice president. Our dance
was the biggest success of the season while the honors that we covered our
name with, showed that we were born athletes.
E The second year sped by and before We knew it we rose to the position
of juniors, honored and revered by our fellow students. At the first of the
year we held ag quite exciting but quite orderly election and elected, finally,
Ray Dunne as president and Mary Knox as vice president, under which able
leadership we proceeded to crown our name with never fading laurels. Our
farewell dance to the seniors was one that will never be forgotten.
Then, before we were able to realize it, we were graduated from the posi-
tion of juniors and found ourselves occupying that pedestal which is occupied
only by seniors. After much thought and discussion we elected Vivian
Prindle as our president, Caroline lVlinor as vice president, Karl Weiss secre-
tary, Angelo D'Amico treasurer and Newton Robinson as sergeant-at-arms.
A short time after the election, Caroline resigned and Vivian was .called to
serve his country.
We looked around for several weeks and ended by choosing Harrington
Wells as our president and Gertrude Howland as vice president, under whose
able leadership we proceeded to make our senior year a momentous one.
Our dance, given the 29th of May, was the success of all our dances.
We know, though we are leaving Stockton High, that she will never forget:
us, the members of the class of ' l 8, but will follow us with loving eyes wher-
ever we may go. Our one hope is that we shall never make our alma mater
ashamed of us but will always continue to heap honors' on the beloved name
of Stockton High. '

ln the mysterious land of dreams where the age of miracles has not yet
passed, and wonders never cease to be, Marion and I wandered down a shady
lane in search of an adventure and came at last to an open field.
A rickety fence barred the way, but the hand on the faded sign post
pointed straight ahead and straight ahead we went-over the stile and
through the field, toward a huge, forbidding wall which loomed up in the
As we approached, we saw broad, shining gates before us and were never
so happy as when we found they were open. The brazen gates of the future
had been left carelessly ajarl .
We entered timidly, peering incredulously about us, fearing that at any
moment this strange future-land might vanish.
A queer little man, garbed in a herald's array of green and silvery finery,
appeared beyond the row of palms which screened us from the land beyond.
His rnien was one of quiet dignity and reserve, but there was a twinkle in his
eye which set us wholly at our ease. r
"I am the Spirit of What-is-to-Be," he announced with a 'smile. "I guard
the gates of Future Land and it is Iwho have let ye in. Now that ye are here,
what would ye that I should show?" V
Eagerly, we clamored for the future of our friends. "What is to become
of the members of our class, the boys and girls with whom we have associated
four long years? Are any of us to become famous? I-lave we, perhaps, a
future president in our midst? Please, sir, do show us the future of our
- "Know ye," he said in an impressive tone, "that Future Land is only part
of Dreamland, and things which ye think strange are natural here. l shall
show you your classmates as they will be fifteen years from now and ye may
speak to them and talk with them. They will not think it strange for in
Dreamland we take many things for granted." I
Thereupon he stood on tiptoe, whirled round three times and cried aloud
some sort of mystic jargon. All we could make out was, "Stockton-l-liglr
School-Class of l9l8-be seen in l933-'yesterday-today-tomorrow-+-
Of a sudden we found ourselves in a mountain valley with rugged scenery
all about us. Down the steep road came a flock of sheep, bleating loudly.
But above their plaintive wails, we heard the shouts of the herders, three grim
and grimy fellows with a thought for naught but their heedless flocks.
Our guide would have introduced us, but though they were much changed,
we recognized the men as Charles Condy, Roscoe Clowes and Maurice Gum-
pert. We were surprised to find them together, but men love to tell tales
on one another, and these three were no exception. Charles, it seems, had
herded sheep one summer and enjoyed the work so much that he stuck to it.
Maurice had been driven to desperation because the prominent Miss Forman,
now, a member of- Congress, refused to have anything to do with a mere man.
l-le had wandered hopelessly through the mountains until Charlie found him
and induced him to herd sheep as a solace for his woes. Judging from
lVlaurice's healthy appearance "Doc" Condy's' prescription had been a good
one. Roscoe was living this outdoor life for one year, after which he in-
tended to go back to civilisation where he would publish his 'experiences in
serial form. C
"Be that as it may," What's-to-Be told us, "the Condy, Clowes and Gum-
pert trio, or the C. C. 5: G. boys, as they are commonly called, are popular
fellows and are in great demand at the country dances for miles around."
"Speaking of success," Charles broke in, "you might be interested to
know that Roy Drais owns half the sheep in California. The story of his
success has become a proverb among stock men."
But the dogs were barking insistently and Condy, Clowes and Gumpert
were forced to follow up their flocks. We watched them out of sight, then
turning off the road, ploddedup a rocky mountain trail till we reached the line
of snowsheds far above. What's-to-Be found some loose boards in the side
of the sheds and we all climbed in, walking the rails for half a mile or more
before we reached a small, smoky station house. '
l-lere, enthroned among the ticking telegraph receivers, we found Delbert
Anderson, the railroad agent. His chair was tilted back against the wall and
he himself had fallen asleep, but our footsteps roused him. and he rose to
greet us cordially. Nothing would do but that we must stay to dinner with
himl we dined sumptuously on a meal of canned -pork and beans. supple-
mented by a can of "Bryan's California Peaches." Delbert told us that they
came from Lena Bryan's model cannery.
Marion started the ball a-rolling by inquiring how Delbert enjoyed his
work. Once he was started, we did nothing but listen!
He said Bernice Fiola controlled the stock of that particular railroad, and
was at present engaged in warding off a threatened strike, instigated by
Robert Gruell, president of the conductors' union. Delbert grinned when he
mentioned Roberts name. Marion asked him what the joke was, and he told
us that two weeks before, Abe Greenberg, the burly brakeman on Roberts
express, had discovered Harvey Berry asleep on the brakebeam, and Robert
ordered him thrown off. 'That may not seem funny to you," he smiled, but
Harvey Berry is a famous man! Young as he' is, he has twice been our
ambassador to Great Britain, and since his return two years ago, he has been
a lionizecl idol among American society folk."
"Well, then, why was he riding the brakebeam?" Marion puzzled.
"I asked him that myself," Delbert answered, hand he said he was beating
his way on a wager. But poor old' Gruell always was a determined fellow.
The men along the road heard he put lVlr. Berry off, and they've twitted him
everlastingly, but he doesn't mind a bit."
just then an inner door creaked open noisily, and turning in our chairs,
we beheld Claude Forkner, rubbing his eyes and yawning copiously. He
was not fully. awake and it took him some time to realize our presence, but
when he was once roused, words could not express his surprise. I-le was
Delbert's night assistant which accounted for his late rising. But he told us
his real 'profession was dreaming, that is, he used all his spare time writing
dreamy verses for the "Dreamy Dance Dirgesn composed by Loretta
Gallagher. l felt sure that Claude was working for a worthy cause, when l
remembered Loretta's extraordinary musical talents in the good old high
school days. What's-to-Be suggested that probably she gained her inspira-
tions from a certain song, named "Ever of Thee."
We would have stayed longer, but our guide's impatience was becoming
evident. He proposed that we take the "Overland Limited" straight across
the Sierra Nevadas and reach our old home town as soon as possible.
Naturally, we agreed.
Out in the snowsheds, while we awaited the train, Marion called my
attention to a glaring poster across the track:
For the Capture I
of "Blustering Brown,"
Dead or Alive.
We crossed the track to read the details and learned that the fugitive was
a desperate outlaw who had committed robbery after robbery, always
evading capture. The picture of the bandit looked strangely familiar and
after staring for some time, spellbound by the reckless, daring face, realization
burst upon me. This was Merrill Brown, the meekest high school boy l ever
knewl And to think he had developed into such a desperate character!
"But that's not all," What's-to-Be announced, importantly, "this man's
accomplices are also one-time classmates of yours. Their names are Delbert
Smith, Earl Stribley and Archie Scheffel, though they are known among their
friends as Shorty No. l, 2 and 3." .
"Please tell us something more about this desperate gang," l coaxed, but
at that moment the Limited thundered around the curve. Before we had
even said good bye to'Claude and Delbert, we were hustled aboard and the
train had started. , Y
The guide, and Marion, and l prepared to make the best of our trip, and
naturally, What's-to-Be talked. "l have something here that will interest ye,"
he said, producing a folded newspaper from his pocket.: "lf ye read this
carefully, ye'll find out what more of your old friends are doing."
The name of the paper was "The New York Midnight Moon." What's-
to-Be told us George Dean was the editor of this most successful of all
m.etropolitan dailies, made famous by its notorious midnight editions. George
employs Zelda Battilana as his foremost feature writer, and Constance Bertels
has charge of all the editorial work. Zelda's feature stories are famous
throughout the country, particularly because of their spicy colloquial flavor.
Since the deposition of Wm. Hearst, Juanita Cozad has accomplished a
great work in reforming the newspaper syndicates. Her name is a formidable
one in Wall street. I '
"l..et's read the paper, and get the news," Marion suggested. So we read.
On the front page we found an article about Miss Agnes Anderson, well
known member of Congress, whose reputation for filibustering had become
national. It stated that Miss Anderson was an expert at asking useless ques-
tions, quite beside the point! V
l was surprised to find that joy Clark was the editor of the sporting page.
Verily, the day of woman suffrage is at hand! The main article in this sec-
tion, proclaimed in streaming-headlines that Joe Baumel, the new manager
of the New York Giants, predicted a brilliant season for his team.
Looking over the back sheets of the paper, Marion was struck with the
startling appearance of the ads. The guide noticed her surprise and explained
that the change in ads was due to a recent innovation in the commercial world.
Anna Johnson and Florence Hall were the managers of a widespread corpora-
tion which made a business of writing ads for business firms throughout the
country. Beatrice Bryant managed their illustrating department and Gertrude
Howland was their best paid artist. Laura Davis was largely responsible for
their success, having furnished the capital with which they started business.
Naturally, after hearing this story, we looked critically at each and every
advertisement. One advised that no one buy a new spring hat without first
visiting Mademoiselle Myrtle Duncan's exclusive Fifth Avenue hat shop.
Another described in appetizing language, the delicacies to be had at Carr's
bakery, of which Marguerite Carr was the proprietor. A clearance sale, at a
dreadful sacrifice, was advertised for Beal's Emporium. Rhoda Beal owned
thislstore which was the largest and most successful of its kind in New York.
All this time, our train hurtled alonghat such a speed that I 'almost feared
for our lives. We were out of the mountains and across the plains in an un-
believable short time.
Ul-lere is Sacramento," cried the guide: "we get off here. We all piled out
and made for the ticket window, where, by the way, Eleanor Andrews pre-
sided. Within the office we spied Myrtle Clark and Beatrice Bowe, type-
writing diligently. ' '
Hearing a familiar voice behind, saying, "Why, hello, Ev," l turned to
behold the amiable countenance of Martin Bernt. He was buying a ticket
to Stockton because his little Ford had met with an accident and was in a
garage for repairs.. "The first garage l happened on, he told us, was one
run by Holger Gormsen. l left my machine there. He told me that Florence
Cowell, known among the city's wealthy set as "the money woman," was
part owner of the business." 1
F Martin himself was a traveling salesman for the Jones 6: Eichenberger
Shoestring Manufacturing Co., owned by Gladys Jones and Juliet Eichen-
"Now let's find something exciting, if we can," said Marion. What's-to-Be
agreed and we followed him to the aviation field. Here we met Caroline
Braghetta, a little taller, perhaps, and a littlernore determined than she used
to be, but still as businesslike and brisk as ever. "I am working for the
Bornemann Passenger Agency, of which Zyda Bornemann is president," she
told us, "and l only stop a few minutes between trips." X- '
We thought her work must be exciting. "lt certainly is," she saidg "last
week I helped Otto Finkbohner elope with the mayor's daughter. I took them
to the nearest town at such a speed that they finished the ceremony I0 minutes
before the mayor arrived."
The story sounded more like a moving picture scenario than real life, but
one "never can tell!"
Caroline also told us before she left that Mahesh Chandra was one of the
fastest 'flyers -in the country's mail department.
Just then, her mechanician called that the aeroplane was ready to ascend.
The queer twist to his voice was unmistakable.. This was Glenn Kennedy! l
remember thinking that his skill must have increased considerably to warrant
his being employed here. I-le once ran' his fathers auto through the back of
What's-to-Be tugged at lVlarion's skirt and pulled us down a little alley into
a quiet side street. Above a quaintly old-fashioned shop, hung a sign which
' Ye Old-Time Booksellers
' Burton 6: Brown
We entered, and found Ola and lrma behind the counter. just as every-
one else we had- met on our strange journey, they seemed perfectly acquainted
with What's-to-Be, who showed us about as if he owned the place. He told
us that one of the books, "My Four Years in France" by Ruth Baldwin, was
one of the most successful books ever published concerning the great war.
Then in quick succession he showed us a Latin grammar by B. Franken-
heimer, "Vocabulary Helps" by Amy Grupe, and a primer published by
Harriet Wight and jean Glasier. The preface of the last book stated that
both authors had had many years' practical experience in teaching elementary
grades. What's-to-Be noted that this astonished me, and shook his head
sagely, saying, "Ye may be surprised to find jean Esther Glasier teaching
school, but I tell ye it's useless to struggle against fate. That girl was always
destined to teach school-and a teacher she is!"
Olaand lrma told us that Cynthia Purviance and Alta Reed had built up
a successful business binding books by hand and showed us one small,
exquisitely bound volume as an example of their work. The title was, "A
Poet's Reflections" and it was written by Carol Burns. What's-to-Be turned
the pages of his notebook and found Carol Burns' name. "Oh, yes," he said,
"this man is known as 'the silent poet.' l-le lives alone in the country, far from
civilization and writes his famous poetry by fits and spasms, whenever an
inspiration seizes him."
Marion wanted to read the book, but our guide hurried us on.
Outside, in the street once more, we were attracted by a glaring poster
announcing the coming of "Kuhn 61 Salmon's Animal Circus." While we were
inspecting it, we met Luella Warner. She was the advance agent for the
circus, which, by the way, was really owned by our old friends, George and
Ralph. She pointed down the street to where a man was busily posting more
of the glaring bills. '-'That is Carol White, billyposterf' she announced. , i'iWho
would have thought it?" I f
"How do you rouse the interest of the people and attract attention?"
asked Marion, who knew something about business, from her previous
"Well, I'l1 tell you. We employ Ray Dunne for that very purpose. He
constitutes one whole sideshow. Everyone is let in free of charge and anyone
who makes him laugh is given a free ticket to the main show, but l assure' you,
very few people succeed." '
"To think that Ray's serious turn of mind is netting him financial profits!"
Marion exclaimed, and l agreed with her.
Farther down the street, What's-to-Be ushered us into a museum of war
relics from the great war. We found Leonora Young, a policewoman, at the
door watching to see that no one carried out what they had not carried in.
Jewett Dustin, president of the' California soldiers' union, happened to be
visiting that day and the caretaker, Mary Martin, showed us around together.
We all agreed it was a very instructive tour. '
"They are taking moving pictures over here," said What's-to-Be, leading
the way. "l..et's go over."
We followed him to the spot and laughed to see the girl comedienne, hair
slicked back, into two tight pig-tails, bow-legged and capers that would make
Charlie Chaplin feel ashamed. At her side was a second Roscoe Arbuckle,
making ardent, but very unsuccessful love to her.
"Hey there," shouted the angry director. "What ails you, girl? You
didn't do that right. Try it again!"
Some note in the voice compelled us to look up. Our surprised eyes
recognized immediately Howard Moore. ,
"Now Margaret," Howard was saying, "you don't do that right. Stand
there till Rex kisses you, then slap his face and walk off."
E Rex Kearney and Margaret Lauxen! Comediennes in moving pictures!-
and Howard Moore, their director. What a surprise. But our guide was
leading us on. .
"Here, girls," he was saying, "comes a minister who has done a great
work in this part of the country. He is a forceful speaker-dwells particularly
on the fact that perdition is yawning at the feet of those young ones who
dance and keep late hours and profane the Sabbath by playing football on
that day. Take good note of him." 1
There, with his collar turned around, dressed in black and walking with a
slow, quiet step was Newton Robinson!
But our attention was drawn to a woman, strikingly dressed and leading
behind her a small poodle dog. V
"Gracious! lsn't she conspicuous?" Marion whispered.
"Oh, yes," answered the guide. "That is Helen Tobin. She's an actress
and just going to her theatre. They say she dresses quite modestly in private
life and is an ideal house-wife along with her professional career."
"But who is that large, blonde lady, dressed so tailored and business-like?
She just turned into that newspaper office. There was something vaguely
familiar about her," mused Marion, gazing in another direction.
"Yes, l saw her," said What's-to-Be, "she is quite large and a very
prominent and successful newspaper woman. Yes, Flora !V!cDiarmid is a very
We passed on a few steps but stopped when our guide drew our attention
to a gentleman who also turned into the newspaper office. ,
"That," he said, "is another old friend of yours-John Patterson. l-le
edits the sport column and is very widely known in the athletic world."
l had opened a book that l had purchased and was so absorbed that l
didn't hear what the guide was saying about John. -
There, before me was "Patsy" Well's face, smiling from one of .the pages.
Below the portrait, l read: "A new series of articles written from actual
experience and dating bacl: to his high school days, entitled 'The Girls Who
Have Loved Me,' by Harrington Wells."
"But he isn't really a writer," explained What's-to-Be, when l had called
his attention to the picture. "He's really a sculptor's model, 'but in his spare
moments he writes about the girls. l think he was sued not long ago for
breach of promise." -
"Well, he began early," l sighed and turned the page of my magazine.
These lines met my eyes: "How to Make a Success of An Early Marriage,"'
by Theresa Peas Thompson."
After showing Marion the lines, l gazed on the face of Helen Londesdale,
on the opposite page. Below was an autobiography of her life, dating back
to her childhood and bringing her through her high school days to the time
when she entered upon her literary career. It was evident from the promi-
nence of the article that our Helen had achieved fame.
We were next taken to a studio to watch a very clever and famous artist
at work. But upon entering the room, our eyes were focused upon the model,
rather than the artist. There in the model's chair, in a wonderful picturesque
pose, sat Carolyn Minor, her features looking as though they had been
chiseled from stone against the dark-green of the background. And now l
recognized it-that picture on the back of my magazine-fwhy, it was Carolyn!
My, what a beautiful picture the. artist was making, she was, indeed, clever.
Who was she? Her face was familiar-oh-Constance Miller! She was very
busy so we passed on.
What's-to-Be next took us into a crowded operahouse just in time to hear
a wonderful voice and see a beautiful figure on the stage. We, of course,
recognized Lily Schlichtrnan, the light opera singer. We were not, however,
prepared for what followed.
We witnessed the best fancy dancing, the limberest and peppiest group of
chorus girls we had ever seen. And on our programmes we found their
names: Mina Wright, Mary Knox, lda Kientz, Bernice l-looper and Dorothy
' We then followed the crowd into a large hotel. The chief .attraction was
to be a fancy dance, displayed by a couple who had danced together for many
years and had received much notoriety and money for their graceful and clever
performances. We watched their free, light movements for many minutes
before we could place the familiar figuresg then, as they ceased whirling and
smiled andbowed 'to their cheering audience, we recognized the red-haired
woman as Edna Todman-and her partner, Francis Viebrockl The dance
they had just given was original with the gentleman and was called "The
Viebrock Whirlf' They were noted for that especial dance.
Then we went up to the roof garden. The elevator girl was exasper-
atingly slow and, as we were tired and ill humored, we gave her a sharp
command to hurry. She raised her pretty face, gave us a haughty look and
took her own time about starting the elevator. I was going to give her
another order but something in the blue eyes made me hesitate. "Why
Virginia Thompson!" we both cried at once. But' she had not recognized
us and so, when she called "third floor!" we left without making known
our identity. '
A familiar looking maid served us with tea. She was also very haughty
and had a cold, superior look. '
"'Why, that-that was l-lerma lVlanthey," l gasped.
When we went down we had a different elevator girl. She called "main
floor"-then I knew her-Merle Rossi..
Our guide hurried us out that we might see the daring aviatrix sail over
our heads. Indeed, she had just made a daring flight and was about to
land amid cheers and applause. A half-hour later, Sue Mark, dressed in the
khaki suit of an aviator, was led smiling and triumphant into the hotel.
. "There is one of our old friends whom we have not yet seen," Marion
remarked. "What about our dear, faithful, trusted Carl Wiess?"
What's-to-Be, our guide, consulted a small book.
"l..et's seeg Carl Wiess-oh, here it is. It seems thatshe has been the
president of a prominent bank for years. '
What's-to-Be continued to tell us of what he had read in his book.
"Dewey Leffler, Frank Viera and George Stewart, noble hearted boys,
have answered the call of their duty and are now in southern Africa, acting as
missionaries. They were nearly all cooked, once, by a group of cannibals but
just as they were making ready to put the boys in to boil, the cannibal queen
came up. Dewey's ever-ready smile and the twinkle of his eyes won the heart
of the queen who ordered their release' That whole group of cannibals was
afterwards converted by your old school friends. You should be proud."
We learned that Noble Wakefield had won many honors in France and
that he had just married a charming French maiden and they were expected
home soon. How he had managed to win the French girl was a puzzle as he
was unable to talk French and she equally unable to understand English. But
he had evidently succeeded.
As we walked along the street, a parade of suffragettes, commanded our
attention. Each carried a banner on which was written: "Vote for Cyril
Stone for Mayor." We recognized four of our classmates: Alma Sagale,
June Nicholas, lVlarjory Pepper and Hilda Peters.
We were very tired andwarm and so, stopped as we were passing through
a small park, to rest in the shade. As we looked about us, we noted a maid
who had neglected her charges to talk to a-policeman. When she looked
towards us, we saw immediately that it was Gladys Palmer. And her friend,
the policeman, Reese Platt. They were engaged in a very confidential chat,
and so we arose to go at length without having spoken.
Arthur Storm, we learned, was a recognized musician, playing at a popular
Joseph Stout was life-guard at the same place and had distinguished him-
self by saving many lives. One lovely young girl had been saved by him the
summer before. A romance had followed which culminated in their marriage.
Melvin Rider was a popular guest at the summer resort. I-le had recently
inherited a large sum of money and had given up-all pretense of work until
it was gone.
That particular summer resort seemed to be especially favorable to our
old friends, for, as we read some advertisements for the place, we saw that
a dancing academy had been constructed with Andrew Valverde and Everett
Lews as its managers. Ruth Tretheway and Doris Woods were instructing
"l'm terribly hungry after all these surprises," Marion was saying. "Let's
go in here and get something to eat. We stepped into a popular cafe which
had, for its owners, three girls: Althea Smith, Grace Sears and Corrinne
Selma. It was a first-class cafe and doing a big business. We guessed our
friends were doing well with it. The only trouble with it was, that being so
crowded, the waitresses were a little slow in waiting on us. I picked up a
paper while l was waiting.
There, in the center of the "Society Column" was Charlotte St. John,
dressed in a splendid array of bridal apparel. Her marriage to a prominent
millionaire was to be celebrated that day. '
"Have you seen Ethel Mae in her farewell appearance on the stage?"
Everyone was asking. "Just think, going to tour Europe-isn't it wonderful?
Only America will miss her favorite so." ,
"But whom did they mean when they spoke of the 'Pig Prince' ?" I asked
What's-to-Be and he answered.
"They are speaking of the richest man in the country-Teddy Behymer
who made his fortune by raising pigs. He has several pet pigs that he is very
fond of. People laugh at the names he-calls them. They are the names of
girls he used to know. 'Virginiaf 'Lily,' 'Bernicef 'Avoniaf 'Bunnf etc."
But l suddenly burst out in a peal of laughter.
"Look at that funny woman in the corner," I whispered.
"l'll look her up," said our guide, consulting his book again. "l.,et's see-
that girl, yes, she is an old maidg her name is-let's se?E.velyn lVlurrayl"
But the spell had been broken. I awoke to find myself in the year l9l8,
as safe and sane as ever.
l have written the dream for all to read, and if, among the members of
the class, there be any who do not like What-is-to-be, they can at least try to
dodge it-as I am going to do. '

Memories of untold merry-makings and adventures lurk in the minds of
the seniors. To call them forth one need only mention the magic words,
"senior picnic." .
April 26th was the day of the great event and it certainly was one perfect
day, as every one who went can testify. , v
Seven-thirty was announced as the hour of departure, but really no one
expected to start so early, and late comers were many. There were seniors on
the steps and' seniors on the lawn, seniors here,' there and everywhere, all
waiting expectantlyf The old high school seemed virtually to be overflowing
with seniors. '
The boys played indoor, and the girls played tag. Some one had some
boxing gloves, and Ted Behymer and Dewey Lefller decided to use them.
The girls thought Dewey got the worst of it, but'there was no official referee
to uphold their decision, so the winner was not announced. Ted couldn't
stay for the picnicg he had to go home and hoe potatoes. "Such is a farmer's
Time wore,on, and still the seniors waited. Half past seven, half, past
eight, half past nine-every one was restless. Half past ten, and every one
was desperate. Even lVlr. Garrison came out from the office to discover the
cause ,of the delay, which was none other than a lack of transportation facili-
ties. Even Famous Wells couldn't figure how to put about l50 boys and
girls into some eight or nine automobiles.
Miss McCoy lessened the problem by volunteering the services of "John
Henry" to the cause. '
Finally, when almost every car was full to the brim, the engines were
started and the seniors were off. Reese Platt deserved a medal. He had
eleven people in his Overland, which was made for five.
"Speed" seemed to be the password for the next hour or so. At any
rate, it didn't take long to reach the vicinity of Camanche. Bill lVletzger's
machine was leading, but he wasn't much of a leader. ll-le took the wrong
road and found to his sorrow that it ended about four miles from nowhere.
Several machines had followed him. There was a gold dredger near the
end of the road and Pat Wells secured permission for. the crowd to go
Nobody knows how all the automobiles met again, but meet they did,
right on the banks of the river. Every one piled out, only to be called back
by Mr. Ellis, who had had an argument with the owner of the property.
At the critical moment Delmar and Berniece appeared across the bridge.
They had been scouting around and had found Carnanche. With Camanche
located, it was easy to follow the road on to the .picnic grounds.
The place was ideal for a picnic. There was plenty of shade in which to
eat lunch, plenty of flat ground on which to play ball, a long, narrow, swaying
suspension bridge on which-the girls could scream and grow dizzy and the
boys could dance and jiggle, a deep swimming hole up the river and a shallow
place to wade. V
That was enough for anyone, but in addition the "Champion Climbers
of the High School" scaled the face of a dangerous cliff, climbed mountains
and explored tunnels.
Of course, a great many funny things happened. Roscoe Clowes, the
daredevil wonder, hung from the bottom of the bridge and swung over the
water with reckless unconcern. So very unconcerned was he, indeed, that
he forgot to hold up his legs, and came back dripping wet. l-le "hung himself
out in the breeze" after that and was mighty thankful that the sun was shining.
Frank Vieira and Pat Wells found a leaky canoe and attempted a demon-
stration of Elaine and the dumb oarsman, but the effect was somewhat
spoiled by the continual n.ecessity of bailing out the treacherous craft.
A huge rope was put to good use when lVlr. Ellis was bound hand and
foot. It is rumored that the villains who did the deed hoped to incapacitate
him for attendance at school the next week.
lce fights were the order of the day. There was no way of escaping the
cold, slippery chunks.
Time flew fast and all too soon the horns honked their warning. The
tired, dusty seniors piled, into the machines for the trip home.
Mrs. Bell, Miss lVlcCoy, lVlr. Ellis and Mr. Iliff, faculty chaperons, were
as jolly as the most light-hearted senior there.
Mr. Ellis thought he would be left when the automobile started back,
but John Patterson made room for him. Reese Platt beat his own record
and carried home twelve Weary Willies. They called themselves the "Winged
Twelve," but the "Dirty Dozen" would have come nearer the truth.
A tired, disheveled but happy crowd it was that returned to Stockton
about 8 o'clock, all joining in the unanimous declaration that the senior picnic
had been an unqualified success.
xxrwf ' L -
'glkiisturg uf the Gllass nf 1915!
lt was in the year I9I 5, that we entered Stockton High School two hun-
dred strong, a class of very "green" freshmen. Now that we approach our
senior year, we dislike to admit our freshmen foolishness, for the class of '19
has proven itself a great factor in the life of the school. ' ,
After being sufiiciently educated, we were allowed to holdvour first class
election, over which Nlr. Garrison officiated. We proceeded, in a noisy
fashion. to elect officers. Although the disturb-ance was great, it did not
affect our thinking apparatus: We showed our brilliancy by electing Richard
Walters, president, Myrtis Witherly, vice president, Vincent Dunne, secretary
and treasurerg Hector Silva, sergeant-at-arms, and last but not least, George
Fortune, executive committee representative. ' E '
Our age was the deciding factor as to what sort of a dance we should
give. As we were still youngsters fno one could convince us of this fact at
the timej we decided to give a very informal dance, which, after all, proved
to be the success of the year.
ln athletics we had several stars and in this branch of student activities,
our "honorable name" was always at the top. 4
Much more dignified and respected, we returned the following year as
sophomores. Anxious to show ourselves rid of all freshman habits, we held
an orderly meeting, and without any confusion, chose a set of officers equal
to the first. For president we elected Vincent Dunne: vice president, Persis
Miller: treasurer, Floyd Gardner: secretary, Grace Lund: and sergeant-ab
arms, Chester Close, our "little giant." '
Our athletic ability had increased and we proved worthy of our reputation.
Our football team played the freshmen a tie game, and in the final game, was
defeated. But revenge is sweet! We won three successive baseball games
from the freshmen and also defeated them in a track meet by a score of 67M
to 29Kg. Even this did not satisfy us. We tackled the rest of the ,school in
an inter-class swimming meet and won easily. This gave us -possession of the
johnson cup. E
When we came back this year, we were'minus several prominent class
members, who had enlisted. Although we miss all our soldier boys, we are
proud that they have gone.
Once more we elected our officers. The election, which was an exciting
one, to say the least, ended with the following results: Forrest Parker,
presidentg La Verne Williams, vice president, and Doris Barr, secretary and
treasurer. In spite of more or less masculine opposition, Alberta Eckstrom
received a good majority of votes for sergeant-at-arms. The manner in which
she has upheld our dignity, proves that we were right in upholding "woman
Because of the illness of our president, who has been confined to his home
for several months, we had no dance of our own, but the juniors' customary
farewell dance to the seniors was one which has not been equaled for many a
year. Everyone enjoyed' it thoroughly.
Our boys are still making a record for themselves in athletics. Everyone
knows that in Stockton High School's world of sports, the juniors are a power
to be reckoned with.
After three years' experience, we look back upon a long list of achieve-
ments which we know will reach a happy culmination in our senior year.
There never was, and never will be, another class like that of l9l9.
The assemblies of 1917-18 have proved especially interesting and profit-
able to the students of Stockton High School, good speakers and entertain-
ments having been provided on every occasion. Especially were the assem-
blies interesting this year, when the war questions and problems are uppermost
in everyone's mind. The speakers have been most enlightening on this score,
bringing home to the students the issues and realities of this great war.
The first assembly of the year was held September I3, l9l7, in the
gymnasium, when all again met with the usual good fellowship and co-opera-
tive spirit. Mr. Garrison read, for the benefit of the Freshmen, the rules
of the school, concerning admits, loitering in the halls, etc. He also discussed
the junior College to some extent, promising that Stockton would have one
in- the fall of 1918 if there was enough call for it and nothing happened.
On October lst the first girls' assembly was held, at which many important
matters were brought up. Three new classes were reported as open to the
girls, namely, home nursing, first aid, and knitting. Committees were
appointed for the coming year and also plans were discussed for the Fresh-
At an assembly held October l2th, Mr. C. Li Neurniller talked to the
students in the interest of "Liberty Bonds." He explained the gravity of
the war and what must be done to protect our boys. He said in conclusion:
"There is only one flag and one America. Let' us protect them by buying
'Liberty Bondsf " Then joe Stout-presented Mr. Campion, who was leaving
soon to enter the service of the United States, with an engraved match case
as a token of remembrance from his classes.
A very instructive Current Events lecture was 'given by Mr., Iliff on
October lzth, illustrated by slides from the University of California. His
talk was mainly on two points: Germany asa "queen market," and German
intrigues in North and South America and in Russia.
Perhaps the most touching assembly of the year was called October l5th
by Ray Dunne in honor of Vivian Prindle, who had been called to the colors.
Here for the first time the realities of war were brought home to us, when
one of our own classmates was called to military duty. Mr. Garrison, in a
patriotic address, bade Vivian Godspeed. Claude Forkner, Evelyn Murray,
and Frank Vierra also spoke a few words showing their affection for their
schoolmate. Then Harrington Wells, on behalf of the senior class, presented
Vivian with a wrist watch, and in a few words Vivian expressed his deep
gratitude to his classmates. As a fitting conclusion, the student body pledged
anew its allegiance to the Stars and Stripes.
On November 8th Mr. Fred Morrison of Berkeley gave a very interesting
talk on the Young lVlen's Christian Associations war work, appealing to
the boys to help in raising one million dollars for this creditable cause.
The public speaking class, directed by Miss M. U. Howell, made its debut
at an enthusiastic assembly held November l6th. Claude Forkner acted as
chairman. Carl Weiss gave us a broader insight into the character of Hoover
by his talk, "Hoover, Not Only a Citizen of the United States, but a Citizen
of the World." Flora lVlcDiarrnid gave an original toast to Hoover, followed
by a recitation, "The New Joseph," by Marion Downer. Rodney Elsworth
concluded' the program with his talk, "The American Garbage Can, an Old
Friend." All the speeches were very creditable and interesting.
Stockton High was very fortunate in hearing Dr. Foster, president of
Reed College, deliver an address on the work of the Red Cross in the war.
He urged that everyone do his duty now, for the students who do their work
well now will be those on which the future of our country will depend. He
told us some incidents which brought us nearer to our men "over there,"
showing their lonesomeness and -hardships.
Another interesting and able speaker was Mr. Sprunger, secretary of
the Y.. M. C. A., who talked to the students on the prison camps of the
war zone on January l7th. Having traveled extensively in the war zone,
he was able to give us a vivid and interesting picture of war conditions.
It seems that practically every assembly held during the year 1917-I8
dealt with patriotism in some form. One of these was under the auspices
of the. public speaking class held January l6th, who presented the school
with a beautiful service flag. It contained on its pure white field, bordered
with red, nineteen blue stars, denoting that nineteen of the students of the
Stockton High School had left their high school careers to answer the call
of Uncle Sam. fThis number has since ,grown to twenty-six.l
At an enthusiastic assembly held january 30th the Thrift campaign was
launched by the public speaking class. Lowell Stanley, Claude Forkner,
Evelyn Murray, Francis Viebrock, Frank Vierra, and Newton Robinson all
helped to explain the uwhys and whereforesn of Thrift, after which the
public speaking class set the example by purchasing Thrift stamps.
Following the Thrift campaign, Dorothea Powell, another member of
the class, introduced the smileagecampaign at an assembly on February 4th.
She explained the origin, nature and need of smileage books, after which
Mr. Campion, one of the faculty honorably discharged from the service,
gave a most interesting talk upon the life of the boys in camp. It was moved
that the student body take books for the nineteen boys whose names are
commemorated by stars on the service Hag, and the motion was carried by
a unanimous vote of the assembly.
The first music hour of the year was held February 7th under the direc-
tion of Mr. French. The chorus and the band gave several selections and
the other students also joined in some of the popular songs.
Probably the most interesting assembly of the year was held on Wash-
ington's Birthday, when Miss l-lalwick, director of physical training, Miss
M. U. Howell, instructor in public speaking, and Mr. French, director of
music, united with their respective classes to do honor to the occasion. Ray
Dunne was master of ceremonies. A symphony orchestra opened the pro-
gram, followed by an effective flag drill by one hundred and twenty-five
of Miss l-lalwick's gymnasium girls. Then ten girls in Colonial costume gave
a Colonial Dames' dance. The 'first speaker was Claud Forkner, who took
as his subject, "Honoring Washington." ,Marion Downer next gave an orig-
inal poem, "l..est -We Forget," followed by Flora McDiarmid, who .spoke
on "Washington Cuts the Cherry Tree: An Old New Story" in an interesting
and clever way. "Washington's Ideals: Are They Being Fulfilled?"4 was
the subject of Rodney E.lsworth's' talk. Francis Viebrook took as his subject,
"Then and Now." The concluding talk was given by Karl Weiss, who placed
two new stars on the service Hag for Harold Quail and George Davis, who
had recently enlisted. As a fitting conclusion, the entire assemblage sang
"God, Save Our Splendid Meng Bring Them Safe Home Again."
On February 28th Mr. John G. Iliff, head of the history department,
made a vigorous attack on the pro-liquor element in his lecture, "Booze
and the War." He explained the 18th amendment and concluded by appeal-
ing to the students to be on one side or the other, but at least to be something.
The students of Stockton High School were especially fortunate in being
addressed by Dr. Aurelia Henry Reinhardt, president of Mills College, in
an inspiring talk on the subject, 'AArnerican Youth in the Great War." She
sounded the same note as a former speaker when she urged the students to
stay in school as long as possible and prepare themselves for the great work
after the war. This was the message she left with her interested audience.
Now, when men are giving their lives for the cause of democracy, it
was particularly Htting that "hello" day should be observed, one of the
most democratic movements in high school life. So the second 'ihello" day
was observed April l9th with an assembly and Big S dance after school.
The assembly proved to be one of the peppiest of the year. Newton
Robinson, Big S president, had charge of the program. Mr. Ellis gave some
history of the Big S society, followed by Marion Downer, who, in her naive
way, told what "hello" day had already done for her, and who, in the words
of the chairman, "had the right idea." Harrington Wells spoke on what
"hello" clay meant. The Big S dance brought the clay to a fitting close.

Our rallies out at S. H. S. have had lots of "pep" this year, due to the
efficiency of our yell leaders, Mel Rider, Angelo D'Amic0 and Pat Wells.
Perhaps part of the "pep" is due to the fact that our rallies have been less
frequent than usual on account of the numerous assemblies for Red Cross,
Thrift, Conservation, Liberty Loans, Smileage and other war work, with an
occasional meeting of the music classes, when dashing selections have been
contributed by the band under the able leadership of Mr. French. Every
meet, be it football, basketball, track, baseball or swimming, has had its
rally, so just the most important can be mentioned. -
Our first rally was held on October l2th and might be fittingly called
a "Jazz" rally, for it was held to promote interest and enthusiasm in football
and swimming. The air was charged with "pep" and it is safe to say the
yells could have been heard by our nearest antagonists.
One of our snappiest rallies was held before the Berkeley football game.
Coach Hunt made his first appearance at a rally and surely talked up our
team. A great deal of time was used in practicing yells, and during the
execution of "Yaka Dulau the yelling changed to, laughing, due ,to the slight
imitation of the native dance by our yell leaders. For some unknown reason
this has been omitted since. '
"Pep," "snap," "jazz" or anything and everything was what marked
the rally held for' "Miss Bob White," which was to be given on December
7th and Sth. The band opened the session and was followed by short talks
on the merits of the play by Zelda Battilana and Angelo D'Amico. Mr.
Toms then spoke on the financial side of the play, and the band finished
a noisy finale.
February 15th marks the date of a REAL rally that was "pep" from
the word go. This was held in honor of the coming basketball game with
Lodi. Speeches from the members of the team were the order of the
day, the first being executed by Captain Rider. As a Hnis Mel produced
an apple which he said was given him to feed up the team. The climax
came when "Newt" calmly but deliberately ate it as it was passed to him.
Coach Cave also spoke on the merits of the team and B. Frankenheimer,
manager, lent a Word or two as to means of transportation. "Vinnie"
Thompson was called upon and timidly asked and pledged the support of
the fair sex.
On April 16th we had an athletic assembly to work up enthusiasm for
track, crew and baseball. Capt. Joe Baurnel spoke promisingly of the coming
baseball game with Sacramento. '
An enthusiastic student body assembled in the gym on May 9th to talk
up the coming swimming meet with Lick-Wilmerding High. Joe Stout,
captain, and Coach Cave spoke on the merits of the team. The band added
the musical "pep" by several stirring pieces, and every conceivable yell was
reviewed several times.

HISTORY OF TI-IE CLASS OF 1920
We entered into our year of greenness and happiness in I9 l 6-l 7, but We
could not possibly have looked as green as this year's freshmen do. We
started 'out by holding an altogether too peppy meeting, according to Mr.
Garrison. After a great deal of noise, on the part of the pupils, and many
explanations on the part of lVlr. Garrison, we finally elected the following
officers: William Eccleston, president, Lois Raggio, vice president, Frances
Ann Gummer, secretary, Bill Parker, treasurer, and George Scofield, sergeant-
As freshmen we came out strong for athletics., We won the inter-class
football championship, we had five men on the varsity crew, we showed up
strong in basket ball, and five of our men were the proud owners of
The girls took an active part in basket ball and tennisand even those
haughty seniors had to admit that our dance and our candy sale were far
better than the average, tor freshmen.
At the beginning of our sophomore year, 191 7-l'8,'we held a meeting, and
with less noise and explanations, we elected the following officers: Willard
Zent. president: Josephine Arbios, vice president, Darrel McCloud, secretaryg
Vivian Wriston, treasurer, and Lester Cowley, sergeant-at-arms.
As sophomores, we have done even better in the field of athletics. Our
team won the inter-class football championship and carried off the inter-class
track meet, as well. We had a good class basket ball and class football team,
but the inter-class contests for these sports were never held. If they had been,
we might have Won them, too.
This year the girls have shown more interest than usual in athletics. The
vim and vigor which characterized their basket ball games reminded one of
"the good old days." The sophomore girls' team won the hard-fought inter-
class championship, convincing the cock-sure freshmen beyond a doubt, that
it is disastrous to try to outdo sophomores. The girls who played on the team
were Winona Creigh, Marguerite Goran, Esther Jenkins, Norma Raggio, Pearl
Sumner, Gladys ,Turner and Ethel Wallace. i
Several of our men, Cowley, Palmer, Parker, Schmidt, Santini, Stanley,
and Wilson, have become star players and are the proud possessors of "Block
S's" awarded them for their hard practicing and excellent playing. if '
These men are the no less proud possessors of "Circle S's," whichwthey
received for-hard training and good playing on second teams: Badger,
Eccleston, Garner, Hill, Kynaston, Mcliinzie, Metzger, Palmer, Parker, Peek,
Wentz, Wilson and Zent.
Besides being an athletic class, we are also, good students, and have some
"bright ones" in our midst. When Miss Alvarado and Mr. Iliff talk Spanish
and French as if they were in Spain and France, we find ourselves entirely at
home. A -
If we can judge from some of the houses that are being designed hy the
sophomores in the lnclustrial Arts Department, there are going to be some
extremely wealthy men and lucky wives fperhapsj among the class of '20.
Miss Montgomery says we are quite artistic. Much of the drawing for this
year's annual was clone by the sophomores in her classes. V
Our girls have done their part in holding sandwich sales and entertain-
ments to raise money for the Red Cross.
But what we are most proud of, is that five of our boys, Jesse Adams,
Lowell Stanley, Ernest Stephens, James Kroh, and james Barsi are now in
the service of our government. They are either fighting or preparing to Fight
"over there" for their classmates here. ,
We are proud of our, record this. year, but as confident "Juniors-to-be,"
we feel sure we shall excel it next year.

THE SONG OF THE GYPSY TRAIL
For over the crown of the wind-swept hills
That are burning with autumn gold,
Where the great boughs sway with a yearning note,
To a wind that is never old.
Let's follow the wind and dance with the leaves,
Banish cares, nor seek an abode,
Let our gypsy hearts be gay and free
ln the joys of the Rornany road.
l..et's follow the birds, as they Hy to the south,
Far above, in the blue of the skyg
Let's trip thru the forest and o'er the bare fields
To the lilt of the old gypsy cry.
Then we'll challenge the cold, the frost and the rain,
And scorn all who battle with strifeg
We'll sing to the tune of the gay tambourine,
And drink to the Romany life.
-E. M. A., 'I8
THE GOLDEN STAR
ln the twilight on the western front,
A wounded soldier layg
His body wet in his own warm bloocl,-
The allies had won the day.
l-lis thoughts were turned to his dear home
As he slowly passed away,
And he wondered how the news would reach
His mother, worn and gray.
On that same eve a mother sat
With a picture in her hand,
And thought she saw a small white cross
Over a mound of sand.
Her team-dimmed eyes then sought the star
That waved in the breeze so bold,
And while she gazed the evening sun
Turned the blue star into gold.

F RESHMAN CLASS
FRESHMAN HISTORY '
Our freshman year is at a close,
And so are' all our freshman woes.
The sophomores have triecl their best
To keep us "young 'uns" from any rest.
They've joshed and jeered and teased us all
'Till we've hardly dared walk through the hall.
But we've borne it all with the best of cheer,
Thinking of what we'll do next year.
And so we've survived!
We met in the study one happy night,
And held an election with all our might.
When we counted the votes, we found they were double
fwhich certainly caused Mr. Garrison trouble.,
We chose Ethert Barret for his size
And Alice Luke for her winning eyes,
Bobby Hammond for sergeant-at-arms,
Secretary and treasurer, Sherid Moran.
We shouted and cheered with our brand new toys
And managed to make a terrible noise.
'Twas really shockingl
But Ethert Barret soon left school,
So we chose Joe Arbios 'cause he's cool.
,Ioe's awfully solemn UD, but if he tried
He simply coulcln't look dignified.
Well, we've worried along some way or other,
Trying our best not to be a bother.
And we've succeeded.
ln athletics we've champion stars to be
As all upper-classmen will have to agree.
We won the inter-class football meet,
And gloried in our foe's defeat!
Of course we're still young, but we're coming along-
Those who think us mere children are certainly wrong.
But we're growing much wiser ev'ry day.
We may be foolish, light hearted and gay,
Just wait till we're sophsl

The Evening High School has completed its second year and has estab-
lished itself as a permanent factor of our public school system. More than two
thousand students have been enrolled during this school year. The average
number of people in attendance during each month has been about twelve
hundred. This is approximately three times the average number of people in
attendance last year. The faculty of the Evening High School has included
between thirty-five and forty teachers.
Not only have the evening schools grown in students and teachers. They
have expanded rapidly in the number of courses given and in the number of
departments which have been created. Last year the courses given were
almost entirely in the Commercial, Industrial Arts, and Domestic Science and
Art Departments. These courses have been improved and advanced courses
have been given in these departments. The following departments have been
created this year-: Art Department, English Department, Language Depart-
ment, Mathematics Department, Physical Training Department, Science De-
partment, and Red Cross and Nursing Department.
ln the Evening Elementary School grammar school work has been given
for people of all ages who desire to continue or complete their grammar school
education. Classes for foreign-born 'residents who desire to learn our
language, and for the Americanization of those who desire citizenship have
been maintained. It is planned to continue this Work on a much larger plan
next year. It is expected that many more foreigners will desire to learn our
language and to become citizens of this country. B
The school year of the evening schools has been divided into two
semesters. The first semester opened this year one week after the day school
started, and closed in December at the beginning of the Christmas vacation.
The second semester started on January second, and closed on May 9th.
The schools were in session this year on the first four school evenings of the
week. Friday evenings were omitted. Some of the classes met on all four
evenings. Other classes continued for only one semester, and were re-
organized as new classes at the beginning of the new term. Still other classes
were organized for a short term only, usually for eight or ten weeks.
The popularity of the evening schools this year has been due largely to
the fact that a large number of subjects were offered from which the students
could select. Another thing which contributed to its success was the fact that
the courses were so arranged as to meet the convenience and the needs of a
great many people. Many who are working all day find it impossible or very
difhcultpto attend the evening classes more than two ordthree evenings each
week. Quite a lfewl of-the classes were held throughout the. entire evening to
enable those whoiicould' devote onlygtwo evenings to the work to progress as
rapidly as possible. ln several cases fhessbwsrs the frnost popular subjects.
The average age of the students attending the evening schools is about
twenty-four. The majority are young people, but many are older. The
oldest man in bthe Evening High School this year was sixty years old. The
youngest boy was thirteen. The oldest woman was sixty-five years oldg the
youngest girl was fourteen. The average age of the men was 24.6 yearsg the
average age of the women was 24.3 years. The large majority of the people
attending the evening schools are employed during the day time. Many
former students of Stockton High School have attended the Evening High
School this year to study subjects which they were unable to include in their
courses while attending the day school. A few students who have found it
impossible to continue their work in the day school this year have been able
to go. ahead with their studies in the evening.
The next term of the evening schools will open at about the same time
that the clay schools open next fall. Plans for next year include the continua-
tion of the courses which have been offered this year and the addition of many
new subjects. Afternoon sessions of a continuation nature will doubtless be
established. I It is planned to have these classes meet after the day school' is
over. They will be particularly designed for adult people who find it impos-
sible to leave their homes in- the evening and who desire to study some prac-
tical and vocational subjects.
The idea upon which the evening schools are founded is that all people,
without regard to age or occupation, should have an opportunity to continue
their education. They should be permitted to continue their training along
special or vocational lines, or they should be permitted to get a general educa-
tion in the evening schools if they desire it. A public school system which is
maintained by public funds should meet the needs and desires of the entire
community as much as it is possible to do so. The idea of continuation schools
is a thoroughly democratic one, and the evening schools of Stockton are
thoroughly democratic. Their purpose is to serve the people who Want to
improve themselves and their condition in life. They are rendering a great
service to Stockton and 'will doubtless develop into some of our most
important educational institutions. A A
DRAMATIC CLUB CAST

DRAMATIC CLUB PLAYS
ln March, the dramatic club staged two one-act comedies, "Spreading the
News" by Lady Gregory and "Rosalind" by M. Barrie, well directed and
admirably produced. Mrs. Bell was the able coach.
The story of "Rosalind" is centered around a young actress, a faithful
and youthful lover and old Dame Quickly. Mrs. Page has come to stay with
Dame Quickly for a good rest, and claims that she is the mother of Beatrice
Page, one of the most famous actresses of the country, and now at Monte
Carlo. A young Englishman, on a "walking tour" through England, stops at
Dame Quickly's home and asks shelter from the storm. Coming into the
room, he immediately recognizes the picture of Beatrice, meets her mother
and declares his love for the young actress. Complications set in, and before
long Charles is sitting in a heap of ashes, all there is left of his ruined air
castles. Beatrice has no mother, or in other words, Beatrice and her mother
are one. A telegram comes, calling her back to the stage and she sets off,
Beatrice again, with the disillusioned but still devoted Charles by her side.
The students, who so admirably played the three roles were: E
"Rosalind" ............................................................ ......... E. thel May Atkinson

"Spreading the News," an lrish comedy, has, as its setting, an Irish fair.
The story goes that Bartley Fallon, an unredeemable pessimist, and his wife,
Mary, meet, while at the fair talking to the old deaf apple vender, Jack Smith,
who is going to put his hay into "tramps" and has with him his hay fork.
Leaving the grounds in a hurry, he forgets his fork, and Bartley in the endeavor
to overtakefhim, knocks his wife's basket over and everything is spilled.
Through the misunderstanding of the deaf apple lady, the people have jack
Smith murdered and his wife eloping with Bartley Fallon to 'America Bartley,
unable to find Jack, returns and is immediately arrested and handcuffed by
the magistrate and when Jack Smith turns up .and swears that he "'will break
the head of any man that can find his dead body," he, too, is arrested for
false impersonations. A

THE LADY OF THE LAKE
The second dramatic production of the year was "The Lady of the Lake"
given by the IO B English classes under the direction of Miss Coman, During
the play, scenes of the Scottish Highlands and interesting spots of the original
Lady of the Lake settings were turned on the screen.
It was an exceedingly well rendered production and the auditorium of
the high school was literally filled to overflowing with the proud parents and
friends of the youthful actors. The contumes were very "Scotchy" indeed,
and brought forth loud praise from the audience. ' N H f ' V

I "MISS BOB WHITE"
A crowded house witnessed both performances of "Miss Bob White," the
comic opera given by the music classes of the high school under the direction
of Mr. Ward French on the evenings of December 7th and Sth. The play
was brimming over with snappy lines and catchy songsg and was without a
doubt the most ably presented amateur musical performance ever produced
in Stockton. The proceeds from the play went to found a Junior Red Cross
chapter in the high school.
ln the play two young millionaires, Artie Tre Billion and Billy von Million,
having lost' an election bet to an English duke, are forced by the conditions
of the bet to become tramps. They cannot borrow money, use any of their
own, or divulge their identity. ln their wanderings they come to the farm of
Friend Rodd, who is noted for "working" tramps. While here they are intro-
duced to a phase of life new to them-work. Their trials at the farm furnish
the comedy in which the play abounds.
. Clare Livingston, a society bell, who is in love with Artie Tre Billion,
learning of the bet, disguises herself as a milkmaid at the farm, assisted by
Golden Rodd, Friend Rodd's beautiful daughter. Through her beguilements
she makes the millionaire she loves fall in love with her.
The two Englishmen concerned in the bet are also at the farm. Lord
Bashful is in love with Golden Rodd, but is so bashful that he can not summon
courage to propose to her. She loves Jack Hearty, a poor farmer boy, who,
to win her, enlists in the navy and distinguishes himself by his heroism.
The last act shows the happy termination of the bet and the betrothals
of "Bob" and Artie Tre Billion, Golden Rodd and jack, and Lord Bashful
and Miss Live-in-the-past Autumn fwho loves ancestorsj.

TRELAWNEY OF THE "WELLS" .
Last but not least of the dramatic productions of the year 1917-18, was
the senior play "Trelawney of the 'Wells' " given June 7-8, under the direc-
tion of Miss M. U. Howell. The play owes a great deal of its success to its
excellent coach. The proceeds of one night were turned over to the Red
Cross while those from the first night were put into the senior treasury.
Rose Trelawney, a young actress at the "Wells" theater, gives up her
pos'tion to marry a young "swell," Arthur Gowen, grandson of Vice Chan-
cellor, Sir William Gower, and is to live with them for a short time "on
Her stay at the Gower home, so stiff in its formality, her experiences there
and how she fits in for doesn't fit inl, with the life in Cavendish Square,
furnishes the comedy of the story. The climax is reached when, after the old
Gowers have retired, some of Rose's free and easy theatrical friends come
to see "how she is getting on." A stirring fight brings the old folks from their
beds and finding the actors and actress huddled in a corner, Sir William Gower
unceremoniously orders them from the house. Rose leaves, too, to go "back
to the 'Wells'." -
Gradually Rose finds that her stay in Cavendish Square has ruined her for
the cheap nonsense at the "Wells" and Hrst she is put upon half-day and
later gets "the entire sack."' ln the meantime Arthur has left Cavendish
Square and writes Tom that he is acting at the Theater Royal, Bristol.
Tom Wrench, a writer of comedies and actor of the "Wells" and Imogen
Parrott, an actress at the "Olympic," after much difficulty, hire a theater and
put on one of his comedies. The project is financed by Sir William Gower,
who at one time had a craving for the stage. Much to the surprise of Rose
and Sir William, who is watching the performance, the leading man is Arthur
The play ends happily when Arthur re-engaged to Rose is given permis-
sion by his grandfather, to call in Cavendish Square and see his old aunt,

It is needless to say what the "Big S" society has done in the past years.
It has undertaken tasks which have made it a strong cog in the machine of the
Stockton High School. The members of the society know what hard Work
it is and have always shown their willingness to spend their time in doing
things that will work for the good of the school.
The "Big S" society of Stockton High' School 'was organized five years
ago by a group of boys who h'ad distinguished themselves in various athletic
contests. The object of this organization is to promote honest athletics in
the high school and to keep the reputation of the high -school beyond
reproach. In both these aims the society has been highly successful, so that
today the name of Stockton High is not only respected for thelstrength of
its teams but also for its clean playing. -. - ' '
Under the leadership of Stanley Arndt in its first year the organization
was started with a burst of enthusiasm, but nothing notable was undertaken
in that first school year. '
At a spirited meeting held in I9I2 the following officers were elected:
Leland Spayd, president: Gilbert Patterson, vice' presidentg Carol Grunsky,

BIG "S" SOCIETY
secretary and treasurer. Plans were laid for a vaudeville show, proceeds of
which were to be used for student activities. The vaudeville was held late in
the spring and was the forerunner of the annual "Big S" vaudeville.
Many well attended meetings were held during the years l9l-3 and I9 l 4
and as a climax to these activities the second annual vaudeville was staged
under the able management of Charles Whitney.
The undertakings of the society in the year 'l4-'I5 still live in the
memories of many of us. Under the leadership of Herb Waite the most
elaborate and extensive production ever undertaken by any society so far in
high school was produced for the third annual vaudeville. The proceeds
were devoted to the turf field which we are so proud of today.
ln the beginning of the year ' l 5-' l 6 the enrollment had dwindled to the
very small number of six. Leo Dunne was chosen president and later in the
spring the fourth annual vaudeville was staged. This proved a greater
success than any other so far given by the "Big S" society.
ln order to foster athletics and keep within their original aims, the society
promoted the idea of giving Circle "S" to all fellows who show spirit enough
by playing a full season on any second team. This plan proved a great
success, and later it was decided to grant weight teams, that won a sectional
championship, the letter also.
The year '16-'I7 was the most eventful year in the life of the society.
Ray Dunne was elected president and the successful culmination of the plan
to send a team to Honolulu was realized.
The Big "S" was behind the movement from the start and contributed
several hundred dollars to the trip. '
On March l 7th the society gave one of the best dances of the year in the
Last September at an initial meeting Newton Robinson was elected
president, Mel Rider, vice presidentg Dewey Lefller, secretary-treasurer, and
William Barnichol, sergeant-at-arms. Spirited meetings were held throughout
the year and various improvements made in the athletic field of S. I-I. S.
Members of the society have been out, acting as officials, and the crowds were
handled in fine style.
The society staged one of the best school parties of the year last November
in the gymnasium.
On account of the good times the Big "S" society has, and the good
influence of the society, and the honor of being a member, each boy should
extend his efforts to get a Big "S" before he graduates, so when he does
graduate he will be proud to say, "When l was in S. H. S. I was a member
of the Big 'S' society."
Four out of the six presidents of the Big "S" society are now serving their
country in the greatest capacity. flnhe other two are still in Stockton High
but expect to be with the majority soon.j They are Stanley Arndt, Gilbert
Patterson, Herb Waite and Leo Dunne.
The members of the Big "S" ,society at present are: John Barret, R.
Clowes, G. Palmer, G. Kuhn, W. Parker, N. Robinson, R. Dunne, V. Dunne,

The motive power guiding the affairs of school life is furnished by the
executive committee, this year composed of an extraordinarily efficient body
of students. A great deal depends upon, and a great deal is expecfsdvof
those persons who compose its membership. No flaws can be found in the
conduct of their duties as evinced by the executive body of l9l 7-18.
The financial backing requisite for the carrying out of the committees
projects has been derived from the one dollar entrance fee paid by each
student upon his commencement of a new term., Different sums have been
allotted to athletics, to the Guard and Tackle, and to the associated girl
students to help pay for their entertainments.
A more careful revision of the constitution, a work begun in past years,
has been successfully completed.
The committee for the year 1917-I8 comprised Ray Dunne as presidentg
Virginia Thompson, vice president, Dewey Leflier, secretary and treasurer,
Vincent Dunne, custodian, Mr. Ellis, auditory George Kuhn and Margaret
Lauxen, senior representativesg Cameron Haight and Winifred Stout, junior
representatives: Lois Raggio, sophomore representative, and Howard Moore,
manager of Guard and Tackle.
Little need be said of the efficiency and unsparing labor of the president
for the success of the organization. We have known for four years the high
grade of work to be expected of Ray Dunne.
Virginia Thompson has proved herself a most faithful and interested
member, in this branch as in all others, of student activities.
Dewey Leflier, as secretary-treasurer, has kept rigid and thoroughly
business-like account of his reports and minutes.
The auditor, Mr. Ellis Jr., who has performed this office for' several years
in succession, has given considerable time and energy in the .overseeing of
this department and success has been his.
Vince Dunne has paid strict attention to his duties, and satisfactorily
George Kuhn and Margaret Lauxen have very well fulfilled the trust
reposed in them by the student body and no less may be said of the junior
representatives, the one from the sophomores, and the conscientious endeavor
of Howard Moore, Guard and Tackle manager.
Good attendance at meetings has been the rule rather than the exception,
yet especial mention must be made of the secretary and the vice president,
neither one of whom has been absent 'from a single meeting. Let us hope
the executive committee of the future will make a better record for itself, but
such a hope is not likely to fulfill itself.
This association was organized to be a special linking together of the
girls for better co-operation and better times. By the constitution of the
club, the olricers are three: President, vice president, and secretary-treasurer.
The president must have senior standing, the secretary-treasurer, junior credit,
and the vice president sophomore ranking. This past year Caroline Minor
has proved herself a rnostpleasant and painstaking president. Persis Miller
has kept careful and business-like account of her minutes, and Frances Ann
Ciummer has shown herself faithfully interested in the organization. Mrs.
Minta has at all times been a most conscientious, sympathetic sponsor to the
Welfare of the club. '
Many assemblies have been held' during the term, the usual subject
brought up before the girls being the Red Cross or plans for such festivities
as the freshmen receptions. These latter have for two years, under the
auspices of the Associated Girl Students, been very enjoyable affairs. Com-
mittees were appointed for the entertainment of the guests, and for the prep-
aration of simple refreshments. Each girl was allotted a partner, it being
usually so managed that every freshman should have a senior to look after
the enjoyment of her young charge. After songs, special dances, or humorous
recitations, dancing was the order of the time until 5:00 o'clock or later.
Such get-together parties naturally helped,to put the freshmen on more friendly
and confident terms with their upper-classmates.
Committees have been appointed to foster athletics among the girls to
manage social affairs, and to provide for improvements.
At Christmas time boxes were sent to various charitable organizations,
containing cakes, candies, nuts, raisins, books, perhaps some toys, and useful
articles, all donated by the girls. Boxes of delicious eatables were sent to
the soldier boys of Stockton High at their various camps.
A correspondence club has also been organized for the purpose of sending
welcome letters to those of our school who are now in the service.
Drives have been held among the girls for the purpose of collecting old
kid gloves, books and magazines for the soldiers and sailors.
It is to be hoped that the same successful course may be followed by
the Associated Girls' student body of next year.
'liz Pramatit "lub
The club this year, contrary to the expectations of many, continued to be
a thriving organization in the Stockton high school. The club has followed
the aim set by the members last year, which was to develop the dramatic
ability of the school by means of public productions under competent coaches.
The club has been unusually successful this year as the members settled down
and put in a lot of good hard Work.
The officers elected for the year were as follows: Zelda Battilana, presi-
dentg Claude Forkner, vice presidentg Flora McDiarmid, treasurer, and Angelo
D'Amico, custodian. Mrs. C. H. Bell was appointed coach and Miss M. U.
Howell became faculty advisor. The members of the club want to thank
Mrs. Bell for the work she put in, in coaching the casts of the plays, and for
her patience and loyalty toward the club.
The members of the club decided upon "Rosalind," by Barrie, and
"Spreading The News," by Lady Gregory. These two onefact plays were to
be presented the same evening. A good deal of time was spent on them and
an extremely creditable performance was given. The plays were produced
in the assembly of the school which was nearly filled by the audience. Our
old assembly stage had taken on an entirely different appearance between
3: 30 and 8: I5 on the night of the performances. It had been set to repre-
sent the parlor of a comfortable rooming house, and it really looked the part.
The cast in the production of "Rosalind," which was given first, was Carol
White, Ethel Atkinson and Evelyn Murray. For "Spreading The News,"
which was given next, the cast was as follows: Delmar Stamper, Flora
lVlcDiarmid, Rex Kearney, Doris Barr, Julia Tuggle, Albert Monaco, Frank
Vierra, John Patterson, Harold Pearson and Ted Behymer.
The members of the club this year were Edna Toclman, Lily Schlichtman,
Julia Tuggle, Evelyn Murray, Flora lVlcDiarmid, Gladys Palmer, Zelda
Battilana, Doris Barr, Virginia Thompson, Caroline Minor, Ethel Atkinson,
Carrol Fredericks, Agnes Anderson, Vivian Wriston, Harold Pearson, Melvin
Rider, Bardo Silva, John Patterson, Ray Dunne, Dewey Lefiler, Albert
Monaco, Howard Moore, Rex Kearney, Winnie Stout, Carol White, Frank
Vierra, Ed Gerrish, Howard Eldridge, Claude Forkner, Angelo D'Amico.
Those who are graduating hope that the club will continue its existence
as a school organization, and that the succeeding clubs will continue to pro-
duce plays for their own development and the enjoyment of the school. It
is also hoped that the club will be able to give more than one performance
during the year, so that more students will be given the opportunity of showing
their ability as actors. . '
JUNIOR RED CROSS REPORT
During the year 1918 an admirable amount of excellent work has been
turned out by the Stockton I-Iigh School. '
Manual Training Department .......................................... 225 boxes
Surgical dressings ....,............................. ..over 60,000 since January ' '
Thirty-three thousand dressings have been made during the last five weeks,
a record that surpasses that of any other city in California, Arizona or Nevada.
Sweaters .....................................................,............................ l 73
Scarfs ............ ................,.......... .............................. ........ l 5 3
Socks, pairs ....... ...... l 58
Wristlets, pairs .............,................,,.......................................... 29
Helmets ..............................,....,.............................................. l 5
ln addition to all this work, a large amount of bed socks, operating helmets,
bed shirts, hospital shirts, etc., by the sewing department.
Besides this work over S400 has been earned for incidental expenses of
the auxiliary. Stockton High is very proud of her Red-Cross record.
The student control -committee consists of five boys and five girls ap-
pointed by the president and vice president of the student body to investigate
charges of misconduct brought against students and to impose punishment in
cases where the guilt of an individual is determined. It is within the power
of the student control to sentence students to serve mornings in detention and
to expel or to recommend expulsion of any student found guilty of violating
school rules. ln this respect, the committee has greater power than the faculty
or even the principal. The responsibility of the position, therefore, demands
thoroughness, fairness and level-headed thinking.
I Since the committee is composed of students, it can probably render more
suitable judgment than any other sch'ool authority. The check on the com-
mittee being too severe or too lenient is the criticism of their school mates.
There has not been a student in the school this year who has openly condemned
any action of the committee. "Fair enough" has been the' remark of nearly
everyone who has received a sentence.
The members of the student control are not policemen scouting the school
for crimes and criminals. 'ln fact, during the entire year, only about thirty-five
cases have come before the boys' committee, and unlike previous years, there
has been no expulsion or recommendations for expulsion. Also, no sentence
this year has exceeded' five mornings in detention.
lnstead of sentencing every student found guilty of a misdemeanor, a
suspended sentence has been given: that is, a punishment is determined, and
should that same person commit another offense during the year, he would
have to serve the punishment provided in the suspended sentence, plus the
pleasure of the committee. ln the entire year, only one suspended sentence
was revoked and a real sentence imposed, indicating that the students appre-
ciate the student government.
Ray Dunne, president of the student body, described the student control
committee at the state convention of student body presidents, and the effi-
ciency of the organization received high praise, many of the presidents pro-
fessing their desire to return home and organize similar committees.
This year, positions on the student control were entrusted to Ray Dunne,
Vivian Prindle, Roscoe Clowes, George Dean, and Francis Viebrock. john
Patterson' succeeded Vivian Prindle when the latter was called to serve in
These students have attempted to faithfully fulfil every requirement of the
committee. It has been their aim -to show fairness to all and partiality to none.
I-low well they succeeded has been voiced by the student body.

Hurrah! After four long years we have a high school band, of which
we are justly proud. Four years ago the band was made up by the boys
and led by one of their number,-Paul Liepelt. This year we have a real
live leader in the person of Mr. Ward French, director of music.
At the beginning of the term the band was composed of about twenty-
eight boys, most of whom had had some experience in band work, but certain
conditions, such as that of James Barsee joining the navy, brought the band
down to about twenty-two boys.
The members of the famous band are: Leader, Mr. Ward French, solo
cornets, Arthur fSleepyJ Storm, Loring flVIusicalJ McCarty, Ralph Wentz
and Ernest Cerneng first cornet, Leo Dentonig second cornets, I-larold Cook
and Leroy Williams, clarinets, Walter fCurlyQ Brown, John Gersbacher,
Edward Wagner and Wilbur Kellingg alto, Stephen Visticag saxaphone, Joe
fRedl Stoutg French horn, Russell Browng trombone, Rob Groves, bari-
tones, John flzlamousj Jackson, Robert Noack and Bart Lauflerg basses, Ray
fikel Dunne and Dale Rensbergerg drums, George Uazzyj Hulbert and
Thomas Bingham. a
Some of the many events which the famous band played were: The big
Third Liberty Loan paradeg Agricultural Day on Hunter Squareg the High
School Draft Boys' parade in honor of Mr. Campion, the drawing teacher,
and Mr. Vivian Prindle, the president of the senior classy the Third Liberty
Loan parade, San Joaquin County Liberty Day at the raising of the Third
Liberty Loan honor flag, the great marine picture, "The Unbelieverf' at
the Yosemite Theater, and Charlie Chaplin in "A Dog's Life" at the T. 6: D.
At the very last of the term Arthur fSleepyJ Storm was hurt in an auto-
mobile accident and did not play at the last two events. Tom Bingham
joined the navy the day the band played at the T. 8: D. Theater and so he
did not play at the last event mentioned. The night of the big basketball
game at Lodi about ten fellows from the band Went and tried to play a few
selections, but on account of the poor light and accommodations got very
little applause. The band also played at numerous athletic assemblies and
HIGH SCHOOL BAND
Our country is playing an active part in the world war. War work is
becoming more important every day and the whole school has undertaken
to do its bit, either in conserving food, Red Cross work, or investing in bonds
and Thrift stamps.
At afaculty meeting last December, Mr. Iliff introduced the Win-the-War
Club as a means of centralizing our war activities, where a record could be
kept of the work accomplished and what was to be done. A system of
service credits was installed in order to designate the rank of each student.
Fifteen hundred service buttons were secured as follows: Enlisted, Corporal,
Sergeant, Second Lieutenant, First Lieutenant, Captain, Major, Colonel and
General. A service credit was granted on a unit of work or unit of self-denial
determined from time to time by the General Staff. Ten credits earned in
any rank entitled the member to the next higher rank as far as and including
First Lieutenant and from there on twenty credits. The students having
the ten highest credits, five boys and five girls, constitute the Legion of Honor
and that student having the highest number of credits is a member of the
General Staff. A E
All advisor sections are classed as Platoons and every ten in the advisor
are known as squads. The girls' and boys' advisors are known as corps,
thus two corps for every class. The squad and platoon commanders are
elected by the members of their advisor. Each corps has a corps com-
mander elected by' its platooncommanders.
The General Staff, whichiis the governing body, is composed of eight
corps commanders, two faculty .representativesfthe highest member of the
Legion of Honor and a commander in chief, known as the Chief of Staff.
Meetings are held on alternate Thursdays, beginning with the first Thursday
in January, I9'I8. Special meetings may be called by the Chief of Staff.
The decisions of the staff are known as general orders and should be in
accordance with the by-lawst The Chief of Staff appoints all the members
of the staff to act on the following positions: The senior corps commanders,
one boy and one girl, are acting secretary and treasurer, director of boys'
Red Cross work, director of girls' Red Cross work, director of food con-
servation, director of contributions, director of statistics and any other impor-
tant supervision that might arise. The Chief of Staff is responsible for the
execution of the school's win-the-war work. The secretary keeps a record
of all meetings and acts as Chief of Staff in the absence of that officer. The
treasurer is responsible for all buttons bought and sold and pays all bills
upon the decision of the staff. The statistician collects the monthly report
of the squad commanders at the end of each month and makes a monthly
report to the staff.
A monthly review is held during the first week in the month at the advisor
period and presenting to the school the work of the club for the past month,
and plans for the coming month. The Legion of Honor is also announced.
Elections are held each semester. The squad and platoon commanders
are elected on Wednesday of the first week of each semester. On the same
dayvthe platoon commanders meet by corps and nominate three candidates
WIN-THE-WAR CLUB STAFF
for corps commander of each corpsg on Friday following the nominations
the corps, two for each class, are elected by ballot by the members of their
respective corps, during the advisor period.
General Orders: Enlisted buttons sell for Zc each and officers' buttons
for 7c each, or 5c and the return of the enlisted button. Officers' buttons
of one rank are exchangeable for those of another rank without additional
expense. Sugar consuming confections are defined as candies and candied
fruits only. A "meatless" or a "wheatless" day shall be a period of 24
consecutive hours without consuming meat or wheat breads. Service credits
are earned as follows:
One credit for earning and contributing SI to any authorized War work.
One credit for observing two mea-tless or two wheatless days per week for
one month, or one meatless and one wheatless day per week for one month.
One credit for abstaining from sugar consuming confections for one month
fcandy and candied fruitsj. Two credits for pair of wristlets handed to
Red Cross, six credits for helmet handed to Red Crossg eight credits for
scarf handed to Red Crossg eight credits for sweater handed to Red Cross.
One credit for three hours' work in the Boys' or Girls' Red Cross rooms, on
school grounds, outside of school hours. One credit for two and a half
hours of work with machines operated for the Red Cross at the expense of
the owner or driver. One credit for the purchase of a SSI Smileage Book.
-One credit for the purchase of' a War Savings Stamp certificate. One service
credit shall be given for a pair of socks knitted and handed to the Red Cross.
ln closing l wish to ,fstate that it has taken a great deal of time and
patience to associate the spirit of the Win-the-War Club in the minds of the
students, and it is the sincere wish of the Senior Class that their fellow class-
mates resume the'club's activities next semester. Let us all help our nation
in 'this hour of need. -

Last year at the suggestion of lVlr. Elliott, former S. H. S. physical instruc-
tor, a Circle "S" Society was formed. Before this time students who had
made a team which had won its way into one of the semi-final games of the
Pacific Athletic Association had always been presented with a Block "S"
and admitted into the Big "S" Society, but no recognition was shown to
those who worked faithfully on a second team.
All are eligible to membership who have made a team which has not
been able to Win its way into.the Pacific' Athletic Association semi-finals,
have trained regularly on the second team, but have not made the varsity,
or have made a successful weight team. No person who has a Block "S"
may receive a Circle "S," but one who receives a Circle "S" is still eligible
for a Block HS." This society furnishes an incentive for those who do not
think they can make a varsity team, but who are willing to do conscientious
work without glory.
At the first meeting this year the following oflicers were elected: Joe
Arbios, president: Earl McKenzie, vice president, Ralph Wilson, secretary
and treasurer, Martin Bernt, custodian.
Lots of "pep" was shown this year in athletics, as can be seen by the
great number of men who were admitted to the Circle "S" Society. Plans
are already in progress for next year and it will keep the Big "S" Society
"up and doing" to compete with them.
Those who have been elected members of the Circle "S" Society this
year are: Byron Ghent, Ellington Peek, Chester Hill, Earl McKenzie, Ralph
Wilson, "Duck" Mallory, Bill Parker, Martin Bernt, Joe Arbios, Bill Eccles-
ton, Carrol White, Albert Monaco, Floyd Greene, B. Frankenheirner,
Wingard Barnhart, G. Metzger, john Knox, and Willard Zent. 1

The last great society to be organized during the year is the Red Head
Society. It is a very distinctive organization and very picked. The only
persons admitted to its select membership are red heads, and very red heads
at that. l
The Red Heads were first organized last year for the reason of a little
more variety in orders. This was to get a red head basket ball team started.
Now when these lightning-haired streaks start something they usually turn
out some good work. In this case the varsity team actually challenged them
to a game. The two teams at last met in the gymnasium and a never-to-be-
forgotten game was played. Newt Robinson at forwardg Red Stewart,
center: Salmon at guard, Mikesell at guard, and Stout at forward-and
you may know the end: 159-100 was the score. Newt and Stewart did the
shouting and Stout the holding. It was some game.
Next, a baseball team was organized but owing to the dropping of
athletics, the team, after a few practices, dispersed to better climes. E
This year the Red Reads organized again, and an election was held. Newt
Robinson, presidentg George Stewart, vice president, and Stout, secretary-
treasurer. As good order always prevails in an order like this, we needed no
sergeant-at-arms. To get things started, a banquet was held in the cafeteria.
Nearly the whole school was on hand in the cafeteria. Newt and Stout gave
short speeches and then the meeting adjourned to their rooms.
Soon the Red I-leads were making bandages for the Red Cross. But
measles broke up this work and as it is now compulsory, they have had to
give this part up. The fellows have still that old spirit of patriotism and are
waiting for the chance to come when they can get back to their routine again
in the cafeteria. i
The main help this year for the Red Cross was in selling tickets for Miss
"Bob White." The club sold many tickets and helped around the stage.
Newt was also at the head of the "Hello" day and Thrift Stamp dance
after-school which all will remember.
These red heads have a way of making the different teams. On the
football team there were fourg two on basket ballg three in trackg one in
swimming, and a few on the crew in rowing. As the officers all graduate
this year, we wish the rest of the club a happy and merry life, and hope that
they will reorganize the Red Head Club again next year.
Spaans Ululr A
.A Spanish club was introduced, for the Hrst time, into the Stockton High
School on the 22nd of November.
At the first exciting and well attended meeting the following officers were
elected: Angelo D'Amico, president, Lilian Eberhard, vice-presidentg
Adeline Selna, secretary. A program committee was appointed, which
consisted of Constance Bertels, Carol White, and Lily Schlichtman.
The club met for a unoche espanol" twice a month, At the third meet-
ing the name "Circulo Hispanicon was unanimously chosen as the name of
the club. - ' p
All those who attended the meetings of the "Circulo lllispanicon found
them to be Very interesting as well as educative. No one was allowed to
speak a word in English. If anyone did so he was under the penalty of
paying fa fine. This helped to enlarge the vocabulary of many of the mem-
bers of the club, as well as the treasury of the "Circulo Hispanicof'
The educative talks that were given at these meetings ranged from dis-
cussions on "Madrid" and "Andalusia" to those on the "Spanish Native
Dance," It has been thought tlfat Angelo D'Amico, after hearing this latter
subject discussed, tried to reproduce the Spanish ufandangou and "jota" in
the play, ."lVliss Bob White."
The club was not without song-birds, for Miss Alvarado, Lily Schlicht-
man and Ethel May Atkinson delighted the members with their sweet soprano
voices. The assembly hall has echoed with the patriotic chants of "Mia
Patrian and the soft, melodious tune of "La Paloma."
One of the most interesting pastimes of the club was the Spanish games.
Ships came in from China loaded with cargoes of all kinds-from "perros"
and "gates" to "casas" and "sillas." . A '
Through the "Circulo l-lispanicon the Spanish students have come to
know Spain geographically, as well as learned the ways and customs of the
Spanish people. The club owes a great deal of credit to Miss Alvarado, who
so kindly gave much of her time in order to make the club a success. ' She
never failed to produce an interesting program. '
May the club celebrate its second anniversary next year at Stockton
High, and may it be as great a success and help to the students as it has
been this year.

FRESHMAN RECEPTION OCTOBER 5, 1917
On October 5, 1917, the Girls' Associated Students of S. H. S. gave the
freshman girls a reception in the gymnasium. The entertainment was given
after school, its object being to initiate the freshmen into the organization
and make them feel as if they really belonged to us. Each girl was given a
colored ticket which marked her class standing.
After each one had obtained her partner, they took seats on the bleachers
and the entertainment followed' The first scene consisted of a country school
room, tyvo benches filled with pupils, an old maid school teacher fEvelyn
Murrayj, an old trustee f"lVlr." Zelda Battilanal, and a visitor fAgnes
Henryj. The young school girls seated upon the bench were: Ola Burton,
Ethel Atkinson, Leonore Young, Flora McDiarmid, Helen Moore, Lily
Schlichtman, Florence Hall, Ida Kientz, Virginia Thompson, and Norma
Raggio. The boys were: Maude and Mina Wright.
Ethel Atkinson rendered several vocal solos. Leonore Young read an
essay and Flora McDiarmid recited a piece, which was cleverly done.
The pupils were quite mischievous that day and. kept the teacher busy
The audience was kept in a fit of laughter throughout the program.
After school was dismissed, everyone was served to refreshments in the
tank room and dancing was the pleasure of the remainder of the afternoon.
At 5: 30 each girl journeyed' homeward to the strains of "Home Sweet
THE AFTERNOON DANCES
The first afternoon dance of the year was held on Friday, October l2,
l9l7. The peppiest crowd in the world danced to the spirited music of
the "Jackson-Storm" orchestra. One of the important events was Josephine
Arbios losing her shoe. The throng of dancers departedgat 5: 30 p. m.
' The next dance was on November l2th. Music was furnished by the
"Furious Five," namely, Pat Wells, piano, Ed Gerrish, banjo: Forrest Parker,
banjog Bill Parker, banjo, and Jess Sommers, saxophone. They were just
as musical and peppy as they sound, but refused to play after 5:30.
On February 22, l9l8, the third dance was just as spirited and well
attended as the others. The main attraction was punch made by Miss
Howell's advisor girls. It was "Red Cross punch"-not "Hoover." Twenty-
two dollars was cleared.
At the stroke of 5:30 the urgent encores of the Htrippers of the light
fantastic" could not induce the musicians to play overtime.
After a most exciting "Hello Day," the fourth dance was held on April
l9th, under the auspices of the "Big S" Society. Two special featureswere
a "Big S" dance for members of that organization-and their partners-and
a "Thrift" dance, in which every couple that danced had to buy a Thrift
Miss I-lowell's advisor sold delicious "Red Cross punch" again. fWas
it the punch or the waitresses that attracted most of the boys?J The dancers
left at 5:30, wishing many happy returns of the day. I
I FRESHMAN RECEPTION, FEBRUARY 26, l1918
On Tuesday afternoon, February 26, 1918, the upper class girls enter-
tained their baby sisters. The semi-annual reception was held in the gym-
nasium, and with much giggling and excitement the freshman girls attended
The program for the afternoon was arranged very cleverly, the choruses
of several songs being sung and during the singing the song was acted in
Evelyn Murray introduced each song. The First, "Over There," was
represented by several bonny lassies, who succeeded well in their attempts,
however, their drill probably could have been improved by authorities. The
soldiers who took part were: Captain, Zelda Battilanag lst lieutenant, Vir-
ginia Thompsong 2nd lieutenant, Gertrude Howland, and sergeant, Josephine
Arbios. . A
"Hilda I-Ionsonn was richly dramatic in her actions during the singing of
i'Hello Wisconsin." It is no wonder that she won poor "Yonnie Yonson's"
heart. Bernice Gianelli posed as "Hilda I-lonsonu and Alberta Eckstrom took
the part of "Yonnie Yonsonf' E
"Mother and father old and gray, sweetheart and son quite young and
gay" were a great asset to the representation of "Long Boy," which was quite
successful. The dear old mother was Agnes Henry. Zelda Battilana took the
part of Dad. Josephine Arbios was the brave soldier laddie and Florence
Hall was the heart-broken sweetheart.
"So Long Mother" deserves much credit. The dear mother certainly tried
her best to cry over her departing son. Agnes I-lenry served as the mother.
Virginia Thompson was the supposed to be son. Q I
"They Go Wild Over Mel" was described by Vilas Derr. They surely
did "go wild" over her. The faint-hearted men were Josephine Arbios,
Gertrude Howland, Zelda Battilana and Virginia Thompson.
Genevieve lVlcQuigg in her own coquettish actions demonstrated "A
Wonderful Way" in a manner not soon to be forgotten. A
I The key-note of the program was struck when "I Don't Want to- Get Well"
was exhibited by a charming little Red Cross nurse who touched the hearts of
every one, and especially the would-be soldier. Lily Schlichtman acted as
the Red Cross nurse while her sick soldier appeared to be Gertrude I-lowland.
Flora lVIcDiarmid in a decidedly dramatic way recited "I Won't Cry No

punch, and cookies furnished the entertainment for the rest of the afternoon.
PUBLIC SPEAKING BANQUET ' -
H' 'Following the custom of the past few years, the public speaking class
gave a dinner on January IO, 1918, at the cafeteria, to their parents' and
friends. A repast 'iwas--made'-'possible'by 'Miss Colwell and her 'domestic
science students, who prepared the meal. - ' - A
The cafeteria room was hung with greenery in long festoons. The tables
were arranged in the form of the letter H in compliment to the instructor
and hostess, Miss M. U. Howell, and were beautifully adorned with the
national colors, consisting of streams of crepe following the outline of the
table, and broken here and there by bouquets of berries.
Place cards were laid at thirty-six plates and were decorated with the
American shield in red, white and blue and bore many hidden jokes for
the members of the class.
The music, during the evening, was furnished by "three fits" of the
"furious five." Harrington Wells, acting as toastmaster of the occasion,
showed rnuch cleverness in the introduction of each speaker and his genial
manner placed everyone at his ease and made him feel "at home." Pat
also acted as pianist for the "three fits," the other two being Edward Gerrish
and William Parker. T .
The program was chiefly of a patriotic nature, most of the talks centering
around the general theme, "Service in the American War for for Democracy."
The program was as follows:
Tribute to the American Flag ...........................,.. .,..
Why I Wish to Become an American Citizen ........................ Stephen Vistica
America in the War for Democracy .................... Ray Dunne and john Boggs
The Spirit of Service .......................... ......................... E velyn Murray

The Man in the Shadow .........
Toast to "Dad" ...... ' .................... ....... D arthea Powell
To the Public Speaking Class ...... ..... ........................... F l ora McDiarmid
The Question of the Hour ......................................... - ........... F rancis Viebrock
Following the speeches by the class, B. Frankenheimer, George Dean,
Frank Quinn, Irving Neumiller and Tom Louttit, past members of public
speaking classes, all 'spoke of the benefit public speaking had been to them
either in business or social life.
Miss Mclnnes and other guests responded to the toastmaster's invitation
During the evening 'Pat Wells and Irving Neumiller sang several solos.
Altogether the occasion is one long to be remembered. The committee
of arrangements, which consisted of Doris Barr, Evelyn Murray, and Harring-
ton Wells, did fine work and a great deal of the success of the evening is
due to them. 0 .
The girls who served were Helen Wurster, Pauline Titus, and Winifred
"GUARD AND TACKLE3' STAFF BANQUET A
The greatly overworked staff of the Guard and Tackle was delightfully
entertained at the home of Miss Myra Pope on the evening of May 4th. The
table was set out-of-doors and decorations were carried out in patriotic colors
in sweet peas and japanese lanterns. Games played at the table sent the
guests into gales of laughter, and the tardy photographer did not please
everyone with his carnera's interpretation of their facial expressions-espm
cially Ted Behymer and Bob Hammond. Ted was also entertaining with
his clever poetry and fancy dancing.
Cotillions, Virginia reels and modern dances were enjoyed during the
evening by Miss Minerva U. Howell, guest of honorg Flora McDiarmid, Doris

A SOLDIERS SWEATER
In the sun's last rays, a maiden sits
And on a soldier's sweater knits. '
Her thoughts, from her work, have drifted farg
Away from the fears and cares that are,
And she dreameth a dream of love and peace
That should be hers when war shall cease.
And into the garment she knits her dreams
As she sits in the fading sun's last beams.
In the evening shadows a maiden sits
And on a soldier's sweater knits.
Her fancy strays to days gone by,
And her eyes are dim, and she breathes a sigh.
Her thoughts come back to a lurking fear,
And into the garment there falls a tear.
Sometimes she knits a sweet, sad song
Into the sweater, as she worksualong.
The days pass by, and a setting sun
Shines on a so1dier's sweater, done-
A garment of love, and hope, and fear,
Of a rnaiden's dreams, and an idle tear,
Of youthful thoughts and fancies sweet
Hidden there in the stitches neat.
Made in the fading sun's last beams-
A soldier's sweater-and a maiden's dreams.
'Mid cannon smoke, a soldier stands
And views a garment in his hands.
But his thoughts have strayed from the sweater, new
And he wonders if she still is true.
For he cannot know what a maiden dreams,
As she knits in the sun's last, fading beams.
Nor can a soldier's smoke-dimmed eyes
See what in a sweater lies.

A SONG OF OUR CHILDREN
Oh, let us live those wondrous days,
When our fathers marched to war,
When they laughed and lived and loved and died,
ln those mighty days of yore.
The olcl world rgockecl beneath their feetg
The rivers blood-red ran.
The Hun still tremhles at the thought
Of a U. S. lighting man!
We hear again the cannons' roar,
H As they, in one accord,
With nerves of steel and hearts of fire,
Beat back' the German horde!
And surely, loving tears were vain.
They died not who thus gave,
For they shall live in hearts of men
While Freedom's flags still wave.

' . FOOTBALL
Last year our football team almost captured the championship, but
somehow it eluded them.
- At an assembly early in September speeches from the captain and the
"Boss" aroused great interest in the success of football season, and practice
was begun with great energy.
ln our firstgame, played with Centerville, we got the- short end of the
score, but far from disheartening us, it gave us the impetus needed to do
The following Saturday the student body had the first chance of seeing
our team in action, when Stockton played Lick Wilrnerding, whose team 'had
been practicing for several months.
I Lick, 13--Si. H. S., 11
The Lick team came up from the city in machines.
One of the machines in which they came broke down three times, so
when the game was called they had twelve men, their coach and a Holt
guard for a team. We also started with the same number of men, but dicln't
get started until the last half of the game or there would have been a different
Stockton started the game with Red Robinson, Zent, Dutch Mallory,
Captain Kuhn, Vince Dunne, Goldsmith, D'Amico, I-lildreth, Dago Santini,
Mel Rider, Wilson, Dewey Leflier, Red Steward and Bill Parkerg and there
were very few changes. Palmer replaced D'Amico in the last half.
Lick kicked off and the play had not progressed five minutes until Vince
Dunne went-over for the first try and Robinson failed to convert. Lick
quickly followed this by two tries and converted both. The rest of the half
was hard fought and first our team would have the advantage and then theirs.
The beginning of the second half saw Lick on the field with its entire
lineup and they were sure of an easy victory, but the Way High went after
them they knew that it was a football game and not a pink tea. In the early
part of the half Vince Dunne went over forhis second try and Robinson
failed to convert from a very difficult angle. Lick offset this advantage by
getting another try, but did not convert it. Stockton then really started to
fight and soon Mel Rider crawled between Lick's legs for another try, which
the fighting Red Robinson converted. With Lick then having only two
points advantage, the team fought like demons, but they could not get
another try, so went clown to a defeat to a team which expected to beat
them by much more.
S. H. S. Alumni vs. S. H. S.
The game of October 6, which was to be between the Alumni and our
Ruggies, proved a farce, for only six of the Alumni showed up. A team
was finally made up and a game was played for the practice to be gleaned.
The game started with Bee Frankenheirner, Bill' Parker, Duck Mallory,
Willie Hildreth, Ahearn, Dago Santini, Vince Dunne, Mel Rider, Gene
Palmer, Bing Barnhart, Red Stewart, Red Robinson, and Patrick Wells for
High: Ralph Hickinbotham, joe Stout, Russ l-Iighby, Louis Burk, Percy
Ahearn and Pat Patterson of the Alumni, plus Winnie Stout, Al Monaco,
Willson, Stanley Metzger, John Knox and Lovett for the Alumni.
ln the early part of the game Robinson went over for a try, but failed
to convert. Then Joe Stout, working under' the illusion that windows don't
cost money, kicked the ball through one in the science building. From then
on the game was a riot of fun-such as the lrish represented by Patterson,
and the italian by Santini, sought to eradicate each other by kicking and
clawing at each other while the ball was smothered in the scrum. At the
end of the first quarter there was much heaving and gasping, but Ray Dunne,
who was refereeing unmercifully, sent them back to work. At the end of
of the half faint calls for water could be heard over "no man's land," but
it was not forthcoming. The last half was a repetition of the' first except
that Louie, the hot-dog man, did more business. The final score was 28 to 0
in favor of High School. lrligby and Stout showed up well for the Alumni
and played withitheir old form, while Robinson and Dago Santini were right
there for High School.
There was a very poor crowd out, considering who was playing. While
the game was a fizzle, it wouldn't be a bad plan for the Alumni to organize
and ,form a regular team. They have the material and would be able to
furnish some good games in the evenings and on the Saturdays when we
have no game. So get together, Alumni, and get up a team.
S. H. S., 33 Alameda, 6 H
Saturday the l3th was the scene of a conflict between the Stockton
High and Alameda rugbys. It was a long-drawn-out affair, and while some
even wondered if breakfast would still be warm when they got home, others
suggested stringing arc lamps over the field.. When the teams played, the
playing was good, but when they argued the language was awful.
ln the first part of the game it looked like a walk-away for Alameda, for
no sooner had the play started than Alameda made a try, but failed to con-
vert it. From then on the play see-sawed across the center line, and once
they had the ball on our goal line, but to the tune of "Fightl Fight!" Rider
fell on it and we got a twenty-five yard drop-out. Wilson was then replaced
by Ahearn and Stockton rushed thqball toward Alameda's goal, where Vince
Dunne went over for our first try. Robinson failed to convert.
ln the second half John D'lVlartini replaced Goldsmith and was later
replaced by Stapp. Alameda started right in to play and soon had the ball
at our goal, where one of the men in trying to make a try stumbled and fell
across the line with the ball under him. Then the grand argument arose and
every conceivable point was brought up. This harangue lasted about three-
quarters of an hour. The decision was to play a new half.
Alameda's coach took Tyler's place as referee, but it continued to be an
argument rather than a football game. Both teams were so mad by this time
that in every melee somebody would come out, completely out, and further
delayed the game. Then Alameda went over for another try, but failed to
convert at an easy angle. The rest of the game was uneventful except for an
occasional kick in the head and faint calls for water.
W Ray Dunne and Red Robinson handled the Stockton team very well. Ray
is some boy when it comes to telling them what's what about football. There
was a good crowd out and D'Amico and Wells made lots of noise.
Mel Rider, the pygmy of our team, was easily the best, for he sure played
the game and when he went after a man he got him. -
Stockton's line-up was as follows: Dewey Lefller, captain, Red Robinson,
Willie I-Iildreth, Bill Parker, Goldsmith, Duck Mallory, Dago Santini, Mel
Rider, Gene Palmer, Vince Dunne, Wilson, Captain Kuhn, Stapp, Clowes,
Zent, DeMartini and Red Stewart. Score 6 to 3.
s. H. s. 245 Woodland o S
Stockton High played its first league game on Saturday, the 27th, and
the suspicion that we didn't have a championship team was quickly dispelled.
They were a husky looking lot and the chances looked bad for us, but our
team, composed of men of all heights and with no two suits alike, sure played
ln the very first of the game the ball was carried down near Woodland's
goal line. Then Woodland worked it back to the center of the Held. At this
point I-lunt's coaching showed up well, for the ball came out of the scrum
and went out the line-out till Winnie Stout got it and went over for the first
try. Robinson failed to convert this from a difficult angle. Woodland
dropped out on the twenty-five yard line end in a few moments of play.
Vince Dunne made the longest run of the season and went over for the
second try, and Robinson saw to the converting. For the rest of the half the
play was around the center of the held.
ln the second half Hildreth took Parker's place at fullback and Parker
took Hildretlfs at wing, and then we really got started and the game was
always in Woodland territory. First Lefiier made a try, which Vince Dunne
failed to convert. l-lildreth was next in line, so he made a try right between
the goals and the big red-head converted. Robinson then got tired of con-
verting some one else's tries, so made one himself and converted it. Pat Wells
then replaced Palmer and the game was nearly even for the rest of the half.
The game ended with a score of Z4 to 0. Vince Dunne and Newt Robinson
were the stars for Stockton. Newt followed the ball like a dog follows its
The following played for Stockton: Dewey Lefller, Bill Parker, Mel Rider,
Vince Dunne, Willie I-lildreth, Dago Santini, Harold Ahearn, Newt Robin-
son, Captain Kuhn, Wilson, Winnie Stout, Cow Clowes, Gene Palmer, Bar-
rett, Goldsmith and Pat Wells.
s. H. s. 513, Woodland o
The Stockton High football team journeyed to Woodland for the express
purpose of cleaning up the Woodlanders. And they surely did it, although
not as badly as when we played them here. The game started out with Barnet,
Willson, Crow fwho took CroWley's place in the second halfj, Red Robinson,
Santini, Goldsmith, Palmer, Mel Rider, Vince Dunne, Capt. Kuhn, Willy
Hildreth, Pat Wells, Winnie Stout and Bill Parker.
The first half of the game was almost even throughout and very interesting.
During this half only one try was made, and that by Mel Rider. Robinson,
who seems to have found his eyes, converted this and one other, making two
out of three.
During the breathing spell between halves a telegram was received from
"Boss" Elliott, our former coach, imploring the boys to play, and when it was
read to them they cheered and didn't stop with that, but took his words to
heart and sure played.
ln thesecond half Woodland was always kept on the defensive and played
like demons. But they found Stockton a little stronger than in the first half.
Winnie Stout made a 25-yard run and passed the ball to Rider, who went over
for his second try. Palmer also made a try. That was all that could be made,
so the score ended I3 to 0.
There was a marked improvement in the teamwork, due no doubt to
Coach Hunt's excellent work.
Despite the fact that we have lost three Hrst-string men, Ahearn, Stewart
and Zent, we are steadily getting better. This game makes us champions of
northern California, but it is still undecided who we will play for state
S. H. S. 83 Lick 9
The Lick captain won the toss and took the receiving end. The whistle
blew' fnot for dinner, to start the game. Newt, captain of the Stockton con-
tingent, began the game by kicking the ball towards the Lick team. Lick
received the ball and took it right back to our 30-yard line. The halt was
made only temporarily, as the Lick wing scored over near the corner of the
field. The angle was too great to be converted and the ball fell short. The
S. H. S. fellows came back hard and had the ball in Lick's territory for the
next five minutes, when Vince went over for a try. Newt failed to convert
and the score was 3 to 3.
The two teams fought like demons for the least advantage. l-lere Vince
was kicked in the head and laid out for three minutes. The ball again in play,
the Stockton back field started a rush when the 'lla-Uwernded.
As the Lick team arrived late only three ml rites were given for an inter-
mission, also to let Vince, a new man in the astr Qmmy field, count the multi-
tudes of stars that had recently collected in the firmament.
Lick kicked off. Stockton fumbled, and the enemy got it. They started
a rush which ended in a score. The ball again missed the posts, so the score
was 6 to 3. The ball was again in S. I-l. S. territory. So this territory, owned
by Stockton in this half, was invaded by Lick, who forced Stockton to declare
real war. As the dust cleared the ball was in mid-field. Again Lick saw that
a white line was in the distance. Lick scored again and the count was 9 to 3.
Here the Stockton fellows decided that something was needed. The gates
were opened and a Hood of S.- H. S. men made a rushing pass, LefHer scoring.
Newt then sighted the goal posts with care and put the ball between them.
The score was 9 to 8.
But Lefiler was the man to rnake way with the Lick team. ln a few minutes
he was on the ground. A fellow had kicked him in the head with his toe,
thereby making him a toehead. A few minutes later the whistle ended the
game, Lick winning by a score of 9 to 8.
The Lick team was a little heavier and some better than our boys. But
Stockton was the faster and had played a little off-game. Palmer, Stewart,
Dunne, Leffler and Stout played the best for Stockton. The team will practice
just the same next Weekduring vacation.
The lineup: Wilson, Leffler, Cowley, Robinson, Santini, Goldsmith,
Clowes, l-lildreth, Palmer, Rider, Dunne, Kuhn, Stout, Wells and Parker.
THE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME
S. H. S. 35 San Mateo 20 I V
, The Stockton High School team, after winning the championship of
Northern California, was defeated Saturday by San Mateo, 20 to 3.
Stockton kicked off and the ball was rushed to San Mateo's 25-yard line,
where it remained in play for a few minutes. Then a San Mateo back booted
the ball out of danger. In the line-out a bad fumble cost Stockton, as
C. I-Iershy, taking advantage of the fumble, made a I5-yard run. San Mateo
converted and the score was 5 to 0.
In the second kick-off San Mateo rushed the ball into Stockton's territory
and kept it there until R. Falvey broke through and scored San Mateo's second
try, which was converted, making the score I0 to 0.
Things began to look bad for Stockton, for soon after the third 'kick
G. Hunter carried the ball over for another try for San Mateo. It was again
converted and that made the score I5 to 0. Stockton then began to buckle
down and fight. The ball was rushed into San Mateo's territory and Stockton
made a try. The honor goes to Dustin. Robinson failed to convert and
Stockton's try made things look better and raised the lowering hopes of the
San. Mateo was held scoreless the rest of the half, with the ball on her
25-yard line. The half ended with the score I5 to 3, San Mateo's favor.
The second half opened with Stockton going strong. Several times it
looked as if ,Stockton would score, but San Mateo fought like demons and
kept Stockton from scoring. The Stockton goal was also threatened and the
local fellows fought as they never fought before. ln the last ten minutes of
play Lagueno, like a streak of lightning, ran 35 yards and carried the ball
between Stockton's goal posts for the fourth try. It was, as usual, converted.
Stockton vainly attempted to score and several times had the ball within
a few feet of San Mateo's line, but the half ended with the score Z0 to 3 in
San Mateo's favor, thus making them state champions.
Redding of San ,lose refereed a good game and kept the players on the
jump the Whole time. I
Stockton players lacked stars, but every man played the game well and
used what brains 'he had.
. Rooters crowded the sidelines, despite the damp weather, and were kept
rooting continuously by the energetic yell leaders. San Mateo also had some
rooters and they sure yelled.

And so the team, after a bitter struggle and a successful year, lost the
championship to worthy opponents.
As has been the case for many years, Stockton High School produced
the best 'varsity basketball team in Northern California this year, although
defeated in a league game by Sutter City.
Practice for the 'varsity team began in the last part of January. While
little "pep" was shown in practice by the weight teams, the 'Varsity had
plenty of competition and afforded the coach a large amount of material
to pick from. Nearly every fellow on the team weighed less than I45, but
look at 'em go!
On january 25th Stockton met Sacramento on our own court in a practice
game. However, the raw S. H. S. team proved easy pickings for the more
experienced lads from the capital and the game resulted in a score of 40-l 6.
The boys from "Sac" didn't realize then how soon the score would be
reversed. The lineup: '

When Newt Robinson substituted for Dunne in the second half, the
bleachersisurely gave "some" ovation for the biggest part of the Red Head
Club in one piece. W
On Friday afternoon of the next week the S. H. S. basketeers went to
Fresno to show the raisin eaters how to play basketball. While they did,
the Fresno fellows were hard to convince, and the S. H. S. fellows had to
hustle every minute of the game to keep from. getting a dose of Fresno

before -they aarrived in the middle of some vineyards which the natives
positively identified as Fresno. A
It was a hard-fought game from start to finish and the Fresno team had
wonderful support from rooters who knew how to spell "pep." Dago Santini
ate some spaghetti just before the battle fmotherj and, therefore, was able
to make only fciurteen out of the twenty baskets. Stout and Zent played
an excellent game.

easily made 46 points to the visitors' I81 Ray Dunne played a fast game
at center, and Santini showed up with sixteen basketsh-two more than he
made at Fresno.

The big game of the year was with Lodi on February l5th. Fully 350
students from S. H. S. went to Lodi to see the game and a special train was
secured over the Traction line. The S. l-l. S. gymnasium was more than
crowded with rooters and both sides showed excellent spirit.
Lodi started out with a rush' and at first seemed to have the best of the
game, but the grape growers used up their strength in the first spurt, and
the consistent playing of our men finally carried off the bacon by a score
of 33-16. ln the last half Stockton had easy going. '
It was a clean game throughout. Atwater of Lodi played a splendid
game, while every Stockton man starred. Rider scored eleven baskets. The
teams lined up as follows! .

On February 23rd S. H. S. played its famous "comeback" game with
Sacramento in the Sacramento Y. M. C. A. It was the closest game of the
season. Wise was the fellow who could pick a winner before the final whistle.
Sacramento took the lead early in the game, but Stockton played like

mad, slowly gained and passed the capital city boys just as the whistle blew
closing the first half. Score: Stockton, 99 Sacramento, 8.
ln the second half Stockton forged ahead, but soon afterwards "Sac"
tied the score. This was repeated later in the game, but near the end Stock-
ton showed some real playing, and won 30-l9. I-lere is how the teams

'But then our'hopes weresucldenly blotted out in our game with Sutter
City High School. Sutter City won 43-40, but that isn't the only thing that
they have won this year in a doubtful manner.
So Stockton High lost the basketball championship, but retained her
fair name through upright playing, which is far better than gaining the cham-
pionship of the whole United States. X
STOCKTON HIGH TRACK TEAM
This year brought forcibly to the minds of the people of the United States
the knowledge that its youths were falling below standard physically. All
over the country a great athletic movement spread and with this movement
came the news that Stockton High School was to have a track team. This
seemed unusual, as it has been a number of years that S. I-l. S. has not given
much time to this sport.
Unlike other athletic teams, a track team can not be built up in a year,
but with the aid of Walter Schmidt and Lowell Stanley, two track men from
Washington, the team was started. After much practice the team blossomed
out and it began to look as if S. l-l. S. might take a place in the state meets.
S. H. S. vs. Ripon,.80-53
A fair crowd of rooters journeyed to Ripon, where S. l-l. S. staged its
first come-back after several years of retirement, and defeated Ripon 80-53.
Although Ripon has a small school, it has the name of producing real
track teams. This victory aided in reviving the waning pep of Stockton High,
for the track meets.
Schmidt proved to be Stockton's greatest asset, for he succeeded in
capturing first place in two of the events, and second in four. Rider was
a close second, scoring three firsts andfour thirds. Faulkner performed in
a manner that did credit to his freshman class, for he placed first in the
four-forty, eight-eighty and the mile.
George Hansen was the star performer for Ripon, placing first in four
events and second in one. Schmidt and Hansen ran close races in both the
fifty and hundred: Walt had a little the best of Hansen in the start, but
the latter nosed into first place after almost the entire distance had been

lt was an ill wind that brought no one good. This was the verdict of a
five-man track team that journeyed to Preston a week ago Saturday in
Senseless lVloran's "Kad." It was a rugged road that the Senseless Six got
lost on, and, to show that experience is the best teacher, Freckled Faulkner
vows that he knows the combination to every farmyard gate in existence.

Hopeless Hildreth suggested that Chauncey Lease be left there to amuse
the squirrels. Chauncey didn't see it that way, and remarked that when he
landed in Preston, as he surely would some day, he would choose some other
trail to civilization, for fear of starvation if he took that one. flVlembers
of the party are inclined to believe that Chauncey was afraid of the squirrelsj
Upon arriving at Preston we were asked where the track team was. They
tried not to look surprised when we said we were "it," but it was a pretty

in the 50, second in the l00 and third in the 220 yard dashes.
Mel Rider had a little bad luck in the 2.20 low hurdles, when he collided
with one of the hurdles. However, he captured I l points. Mel made first
in the shot, third in the broad and second in the 220-yard dash.
Faulkner showed the Prestonians up in the mile, capturing first. No need
of saying what he did after he had finished, but he said he felt better. He
also captured second in the 880 and 440.
Chaun. Lease captured first in the high jump and tied for first in the pole
vault, thus totaling a score of 9. If Chaun's as much a high jumper as he
is a high Hier, we hope to see him do something at Sutter City.
Garner tied with Chaun Lease for first in the pole vault, thus gaining
4 points. 1
If Stockton could have gained the relay we would have tied the score
with Preston. However, if has a large ul" and we lost. Preston realized
that each of us was an individual star, for she gave us a big yell after it

Interscholastic Meet '
One Saturday seven track marvels of S. H. S. went to Sacramento to
beat the state, and came back with three points and one silver medal. At
that, they beat Sacramento, who got one point and a brass medal. There
were forty-two schools entered and Stockton took ninth place. g
Captain Hildreth made Stockton's three points by winning second place
in the 440-yard dash, although he was set back three yards for being too
anxious to start, or he might have had first. A new C. I. F. record was
made in this event, the time being cut from 50 l-5 to 49 3-5 seconds.
Hilclreth made it in 50 seconds flat.
Schmidt, though he worked hard in the l00-yard dash and high hurdles,
did not score, nor did Faulkner, who, though he did not score, ran a fine
race in the 880. i l .
The relay team, consisting of Stout, Schmidt, I-lildreth and Rider, had
a little bad,luck and only took fifth place. Lease, Schmidt, Hildreth and
Rider competed in the various field events. Lease knocked the bar off in
the pole vault with his nose and so was unable to get into the finals.
Our men were not husky enough for the weight events, and Hilly Hildreth
was heard to say after the tryouts for the discus, "Those birds are too big
Pasadena's final score was twenty-five ipoints, and being the first, she
received the trophy given to the school which secured first place. Paddock
starred for Pasadena, making ten points. San Bernardino was second with

with twelve. . 3 V '

Stockton High School defeated Preston school, 64 to 53, in a dual track
and field meet held on the campus'May 4, and the rooters for the local team
are still talking of the outcome.
Coach Cave is highly pleased with the result, astrack work was the last
thing taken up this year,' and until recently it Was' impossible to determine
the exact caliber of the high school aggregation. Now that the lads have
shown their ability in no uncertain terms, both here and at Sutter City, Cave
is seriously considering the omission of some other outdoor athletics next
season to enable the development to the utmost of a track and Held team.
The material is here and by diligent coaching Stockton should be able to
rank with the very best high school team in the state.
One or two of the best men failed to show up for the meet, and as a
result, it is whispered, somebody is likely to be penalized his block letter.
Then other hard luck pursued the locals, or the score would have been still
more favorable to them. For instance, Stanley ran the mile and won by
30 or 40 yards, only to be disqualified through no fault of his own. It
happened like this: Another squad member, on his way for a drink of water,
thoughtlessly cut in behind him and tagged along for some little distance
before leaving the track. Preston held this was pacing a runner, and rather
than argue, Stockton graciously conceded the point. It was a heart-breaking
piece of business, but was far from discouraging the stout-hearted little run-
ner, who, having already competed in the 440, taking third place, went in
again and won the 880 in clever fashion. This lad Stanley is a whiz at
distance going and for endurance is the real iron man of the school. He
seems just rounding into form. Hildreth is another to bear watching. He
is likely to prove the surprise of the school next season.
Then again Old Man Hard Luck camped on the trail of the high school
when Schmidt was disqualified after winning the high hurdles, for knocking
over a few sticks. Schmidt is always consistent and a sure point-winner in
the short dashes.
But all in all, it was a glorious day for the color-bearers of the high school.
Preston has a number of splendid performers, and they shone like dia-
monds. Johnson, the colored lad, proved the star for the visitors, and piled
up many points for his school. He is a demon on the track and in any
distance up to 220 yards is as fleet as a deer. He took the 50 in easy fashion
and only Schmidt's supreme effort in the last few yards of the 100 enabled
the local boy to breast the tape first.
The record of our baseball team this year has not equaled that of basket
ball or football, but all in all, our team was a pretty good one and was ably
managed and directed by Joe Bauinel.
After considerable Ipractice, we scheduled our first game with Lodi and
just as we were about ready to play it, Lodi sent notice that she forfeited the

Lodi, forfeited the game. It looked like Stockton wouldn't have to play any

The 27th of May the seniors challenged the faculty to a game of baseball
and beat them 40 to l. It was a ripping good game and well Worth the dime
that was paid to see it.
Members of this year's team were: Joe Baumel, managerg Newt Robin-
son, Bill Parker, Everett Lewis, Russell Brown, Winnie Stout, Seifert,
Delylartini, Albert Monaco, Delbert Smith, Joe Arbios and Bill Wharton.
We hope that the members of next year's team will have a better record
than this to represent their baseball team, though our's is far from poor.
The high school again this year' was represented in a new sport. Nearly
all of the team went up to the Hnals for the state championship, but failed
to get the title. From the looks of things the crew was about to do the
At the beginning of the year there were small prospects of a good team,
as the school did not have a coach. Then the playground commission
opened the lake as a playground and put Joe Stout in charge. The girls
were taken care of by Daphne Miller. She did fine work. Not being satis-
fied with mere teaching, she took the girls for Weenie bakes and picnics.
The girls show more spirit than do the boys when it comes to rowing. They
had two crews and were doing excellent work when the season closed for
the winter. ' i
Those on the crews Were: Hattie Mooty, Katheryn Woods, Bess Woods,
Hope lsreal, Eugenia Grunsky, Dot Powell, Jo Arbios, Alida lsreal, Francis
l-lenery, Agnes Andersong Bernice Gianelli, Mary Knox, Evelyn Murray,
Josephine Bryan, Lena Bryan, Ethel Wallace, Annie Ashley, -Esther Jenkins,
Rita Williams, Tess Musto, Mary Humphreys, Ruth Baldwin, Leanore
Oullahan, Catherine Oullahan, Rose Carmedy, Rose Glass, Helen Hammer,
Marguerite Doran, Helen Spurr, La Verne Williams, Doris Barr, Grace Lund,
Dorothy l-lerring, Grace Kaiser, Bernice Wiley and Daphne Miller.
At the beginning of the season, plans were laid to meet some of the
outside schools in this new sport, as they did the year before. Last year they
entered two races. They took second place in the high school race and in
the club race they were beaten out at the very finish by a much stronger crew
and won third place, only. This was a fine showing, however, for a school
that had just taken upithe sport and had only had about three weeks practice.
They were beaten by only a half boat length at that, and could have won
had they seen where the finishing line was and not stopped before they got
When November rolled around, the boys and girls were both training
and working hard. They were getting ready for the interclass to be held on
November l lth. The boys were also getting into trim for the coming fray.
The first race was between the freshmen and the sophomores. The two
boats stayed bow and bow till the last hundred yards, when the superior
sophs began to crawl ahead, winning by a boatllength.
The seniors and juniors next met and after a few hundred yards steady
rowing, the seniors were a couple of lengths ahead. The seniors had a line
Then, as a little side race, the girls held a race over the five-eighths mile
The girls under Daphne, pulling a steady and even stroke, took the
lead and were never headed. The girls are learning the art of rowing fast
and next year should give the boys a hard tussle for first place.
The seniors and sophs then had the final race in which the two teams
raced about the prettiest race of the year. The seniors won by about a foot
at the finish. After the interclass, the crews trained hard, looking forward
to the Lake Merritt Regatta, held in April.
As April loomed up, the crews were at it again and showed good form.
The invitation to race at Lake Merritt was received and accepted.
The fellows then did some work. They were in to get a title for the
goodold S. H. S. and they did. They went down to Oakland and met the
best team there. The race was not very exciting as Stockton never had to
extend itself once during the whole race. The team was in fine trim, due
to the careful training of the coach, Joe Stout. After the race a cup was
presented to the crew for its showing in the race, thereby winning the first,
and only, state championship awarded to Stockton High.
The fellows were entered in the club race but as the Oakland Technical
had made other plans for them they did not race. They had entered a new
boat and had made a fine showing in the morning so when time came to
have the races, they were pretty well used to the new boat, which was only
about twenty-two inches above water line. This made quite a difference in
the rowing of Stockton's fellows but they never heeded this part of the
rowing at all, They have these races every year and are attended by many
people. They have many crews in training all day long.'
The many companies of Oakland have teams-the fire department, also
the police. They even reach to the forts near by and many other organiza-
tions. The clubs have inter-club races which, in themselves, are Well worth
seeing. These teams are trained to the minute and the rivalry is very keen.
The annual race between the police and firemen is about the most inter-
esting of all, as they try to slip something over on each other every chance
they get. This kind of interest creates something that is needed here in
Stockton. As in the old days of the S. l-I. S. they had as much rivalry
between classes as they did outsiders. Next year the interest in this sport
ought to be made as great as possible. ' I
After the Lake Merritt race, the crew began making preparations for the
coming interclass races. There were at least three to five men from each
class on the varsity, so this made competition greater. As the day for the
races rolled around there was a fairly good crew from the different classes.
The sophs won the interclass without having to exertthemselves.
The next race will be for the large Record perpetual cup. This cup was
won l'ast year hy the high varsity and if they win it again this year it will
belong to the school.
A good deal of credit is due Stout for his trying to make rowing a
success in the school. He has worked hard, teaching the rowing and canoe-
ing game the short time that he has been connected with it. He is at present
organizing a canoe club for high school students only and it should be a

Can you lose in a Hght that you wanted to win,
That you wanted to win most of all?
Can you lose with a smile when you're quite overcome,
And you know that your castles will fall?
Can you lose to a foe who has beaten you fair
And lose without envy or hate,
And still have the courage to say to yourself, '
"Try again, it is never too late"?
Can you welcome the man who has battled with you,
- And give him your hand with a smile?
Can you tell him in earnest, "You've won out today,
But look out for me after a whilen?

THE CADET CORPS
Company, ATTENTION! Squads right, MARCH!
This is a familiar call at eight o'clock on Monday, Wednesday and Friday
mornings, when off march the boys of Company 37, training to get the
Kaiser's goat. E
The first cadet company of Stockton High School was organized by Tom
Louttit in April of I9I7 and the present company began its career last
About fifty boys were enlisted, but for various reasons some of them
have dropped out, whilewothers have volunteered to fight for their country.
The boys who have made this sacrifice are Harry Stiles, Lowell Stanley,
Elten Hamilton and Jesse Adams. Y
Unfortunately the company has been without a drillmaster thisyear, and
we have received only such drilling as could be obtained from drill books
and an occasional visit of an army man. However, the boys have done
very well and we are capable of executing all the movements of a company.
The local company has been very fortunate in its fields for drilling. The
campus makes an excellent parade ground, and the armory was used to a
good advantage last winter on cold and rainy days.
One day last April we received some very joyous news. A letter came
from the acljutant general asking us to prepare for a state encampment of
high school cadets at Sacramento.
A special car with transportation fees was provided by the Chamber of
Commerce, and we boarded the car in high spirits, fully equipped for a
Upon arrival in Sacramento we were taken to an ideal camping spot,
where we pitched our tents and awaited further orders.
Each day we had a certain amount of work and drill, which included
physical company battalion and regimental drill, and concluded each day's
routine with an evening parade.
The amount of work and drill we did was offset by the excellent food,
which was served by regular army cooks, who allowed us to come back for
as many helpings as we wanted. We soon acquired army etiquette and did
not hesitate to return for more.
At night entertainment was provided in the Y. M. C. A. tent. All sorts
of stunts were carried out, namely, singing, rations, poetic recitations, boxing
and wrestling. This continued until ten o'clock, when taps was sounded,
which meant lights out and a good night's sleepf?D.
The encampment lasted a week and when it was time to pull up stakes
all agreed that it had been a wonderful experience, and we are already
looking forward to the possible twenty days of camping next year.
This year's'company has been repeatedly called upon to participate in
public ceremonies and parades, and has responded in a very creditable man-
ner. The one ambition of next year's officers is to have a battalion of two
companies. ' , ,
The boys who received commissions from the adiutant general were

r THE DREAMER
His hands were worn and heavy,
But at his toil each day
He heard in dreams the music
His rough hands could not play.
His voice was harsh and rasping,
But at eve, on homeward way,
ln his soul he heard the message
His dumb lips could not say.
But sadness came upon him,
For he ihought that he, dreamed in vain,
And, thinking thus, he slumbered,
Never to wake again.
But a spirit hovered o'er him,
And whispered in his ear,
'There's a land your soul has longed for,
And welcome are you here."
He strolled in fair green meadows,
Where cool, sweet flowers grew,
And the tall trees whispered
In the wind which gently blew.
And there he sang enraptured,
Playing with supple hand,
And every song he had loved in life
Was his, in this wondrous land.

is called to the one-year business course which will give training in the
following subjects: Stenography, bookkeeping, business correspondence,
business arithmetic, penmanship, spelling and typing.
Any student who is a graduate of the grammar school may enroll in a
two-year business course. No business man wants a bookkeeper, stenog-
rapher, or clerk, who is under eighteen years old, so it is far more advisable
for those under this age to devote all the time possible to thorough prepara-
tion soe as to be qualified to compete with the older applicants who are not
so Well prepared. Students trained at the high school are given the prefer-
ence over all other applicants by all the leading firms here in Stockton.
Few of the students reading this annual realize what a wonderful' oppor-
tunity there is in the high school for actual business training. The school is
a large business in itself and the students are given every opportunity of
carrying on this business themselves, handling money, keeping records,
taking the dictation of, the executives and teachers,-and typing the many
reports required ,by all departments.
Let us all realize that we must do everything possible to stay in school
the full four years. The present high wages and scarcity of labor will not
continue. When peace is declared and the soldiers return, there will be more
men than positions and only the best equipped will be retained, It will pay
therefore to become fully equipped before leaving.
Our evening school this year enrolled over two thousand students, most
of whom were made up of high school students of past years who left before
they were prepared to succeed in life or did not study the subjects they
should have studied while here. Now they are paying the price by giving
four nights a Week after the day's labor to take what they need. Let our
motto be therefore: Prepare to be good citizens, prepare to succeed in some
vocation, and prepare to enjoy our success through training in arts, science,
or other avocational subjects that we call our "hobbies,"
--Mina Wright, 'l8.
THE LAND OF FREEDOM
Now is the time to show your grit,
If you have the smallest Abit,
Show them that you'll fight and fall,
Eager to run at your Nation's call!
This is the land that gave you birth,
The land of freedom, song, and mirth.
Will you let it fall into ruthless hands, -
Its people bound as with iron bands?
Then rush to duty in ceaseless throngs,
And protect our rights, avenge our wrongs,
Resolved the Teuton shall never win

' THE BACHELOR'S WIFE.
BY HELEN LEE, '19
Billy Weston, smoking a fine cigar and lounging in a very comfortable
Morris chair before an extremely cheerful fire, was in a very uncheerful state
of mind. Billy was a bachelor with a "fortune"g his rooms at the "Tarlton"
were the best and most expensive that far-famed hotel offered.
One would imagine that our young friend, whom the gods had so gra-
ciously favored, would have been tolerably happy in his warm rooms on
this cold, disagreeable night. But the fact of the matter was, lVlr. Billy was
in a peevish state of mind, and was saying the most shocking things about
a certain Harry Braclsford.
Billy looked sullenly at the inoffensive bronze clock on the mantel, and
muttered something which made that industrious little object pour forth nine
silvery screams of alarm. ,
"Therein said Billy, addressing a bronze bust of George Washington, "I
told you sol" Evidently Billy and the father of his country had been having
an argument earlier in the evening.
"Nine o'clock and Harry not here yet! Well, the next time that idiot
gets me to-" '
A light knock at the door.
"lf that's a messenger boy telling me 'lVlr. Bradford is sorry, but he was
suddenly called out of town,'.or some other equally crazy excuse, l'll-"
But he clidn't, for when Billy opened the door a woman was standing
there, and even under the stress of great anger Billy was a gentleman, and
not in all his reckless life had he ever struck a woman.
"ls Lucille home?" X- V
Lucille? Who under heaven was Lucille? ,
"No, she isn't,7' said Billy shortly. ' '
The little person at the door hesitated. Billy could not see her face in
the dim light of the hallway and her ladyship was lost in a mass of fursg but
now she stepped timidly forward into the light of the room,
"You are Lucille's husband, I presume?"
By jovel what a pretty little thing she was! What large eyes she hadl
A sweet voice, too-did she ask him something? "Er-yes," Billy answered
absently. Yes, he liked the way she held her head-pretty hair too, golden,
he always did like-
"lf you don't mind, l'll wait for Lucille a little while."
And dazed Billy stepped aside and allowed her to pass into his ,apart-
ments. She seated herself in a big over-stuffed chair before the fire, deposit-
ing her furs on the pedestal on which George Washington stood, completely
hiding all of that gentleman's venerable countenance.

CAN WE. EARN OUR LIVING?
ls Our, High School Education Complete Unless We Have Prepared
Ourselves to Be Self-supporting?
Our nation has awakened to the fact that it has an invaluable asset in
its schools filled with the youth of America. Up to the present time the
years spent at school have been care-free, happy-go-lucky, dream days for
most of us, but now it is different-we are at warg there is work for all of
us to do, and the boys and girls at school must not only keep up their edu-
cation but also try to Hll the places vacated by their older brothers and
sisters who are serving under the colors.
There is not a boy or girl at the Stockton High School, rich or poor,
freshman or senior, who should not feel a divine call to shoulder part of the
heavy burden which our country, state and city are carrying. Taxes will in-
crease for some time, more loans will be floated, all the loans will have to be
paid back by us in a few years. We must all become trained earners and
savers. Our education is not complete unless we can earn our living, and a
comfortable one at that, either in the office, on the farm, in the shops, behind
the counter, in the professions, or arts.
The time has passed when a young man or a young woman eighteen
years old can leave high school with diploma in hand after four years of
continuous study and boast that he or she knows nothing of business methods
or practices. W
The time has passed when a young man or a young woman should be
permitted to become so immersed in social, "cultural," and avocational
pursuits without being taught the fundamentals of business. Many a ruined
business man would have been saved, many a fortune would have remained
in thelfamily, many a young man would have foresworn questionable and
wasteful habits, if he had had instilled in him during those impressionable
years of from fourteen to eighteen, the dignity of labor, the necessity of
high business morality, and the fundamentals of commerce, trade and
finance. How much waste and unhappiness in the home would be eliminated
if the wife had been trained to keep a set of books, trained to systematize
her expenditures! How much more pleasant for the husband if she could
understand his every-day problems.
Every student in the high school should be taught the following business
subjects: elementary bookkeeping, penmanship, arithmetic, English grammar
and letter writing, and a knowledge of business papers and customs.
Stockton High School does not want to encourage the type of graduate
who has received no business training, does not know the value of a dollar,
has never earned a dollar in his life, and has little desire to support himself
solely through his own endeavors. "Work or Fight," should be our slogan
here in school as well as out of school. The Government must feel that we
are doing everything possible to make ourselves of some service to it.
Let us prepare ourselves early in our course for we do not know when
we may be forced to leave school and take our part in this busy world. The
courses of study have been reorganized with this in mind. War conditions
are being met. The attention of all academic seniors and all post-graduates

just hurried up to see Lucille and congratulate her. She wrote me she was
going to be married ancl sent me her address, and here l am. .Oh, dear, l'm
so anxious to see herl She's not home, you say?"
Billy was in a sort of trance. l-le had never met anyone who spoke so
quickly in all his life, and, hang it all, he was no husband of Lucille, never
saw Lucille, wouldn't know her from Adam. And furthermore, he was no
one's husband, never was, never intended to bel But this little Betty person
was so bloomin' sure, hadn't he said he was Lucille's husband? Billy inwardly
cursed himself as a crazy idiotg the idea of letting a pretty face make him
forget everything! Well, he would have to tell her it was all a mistake, that's
all. No, nol Well, what was he to do? I-le couldn't lie to her-why
couldn't he? There was no other way out of it without embarrassing both
of them. l-le'd do itl I-le'd just say Lucille didn't intend returning home
tonight. She went-now, where under the sun would a bride go on a night
like this? Oh, to her mother's, certainly, her mother was sick and-why,
that was fine.
Billy looked nervously in the direction of George Washington. Billy
loved the truth. That Was why he admired Washington so much. But, hang
it all, what else was he to do but lie! And now he thanked heaven and Betty
that Georges face was covered. Yes, he would lie a bit and in that way
get rid of Betty and step gracefully from an embarrassing position.
"Where did she go?" Betty repeated.
"Go-oh, yes, Lucille-why, she went to visit her mother, you see."
"Her mother! Why, l..ucille's mother' is dead!"
The deuce she was! "Oh, er-yes, yes, to be sureg l was referring to
my motherg she is very fond of Lucille."
"Lucille wrote me your people went east for the winter."
"Yes, but mother was taken sick and was forced to return. Lucille went
to visit her. l was to call for her this evening, but er-business duties detained
me. Lucille telephoned me she would remain at rnother's all night. Believe
me, l am extremely sorry." l
"So am I," said Betty.
Billy looked defiantly lat the covered face of George Washington. l-le
was proud of himself-it took brains to lie like that-and that idea about
business was good, it sounded so big and probable.
"What business are you in?"
What-oh, ye gods! What business? Billy mentally went through the
names of some business firms. With a grand attempt at carelessness he
answered: "l'm manager for the C. Kingley Co."
It was the first name that came to him, but on second thought Billy
remembered it was a pickle factory, and was suddenly seized' with a severe
coughing attack. If the girl asked him any more questions-Billy shifted
in the now extremely uncomfortable Morris chair.
"You are nervous, aren't you?"
What! Good Lord, was shel -
"Lucille wrote that you worked too hardg she was afraid you would wear
yourself out, and break down completely. Really you should not work so
hard: your health is more important than business." The wise little bit of
advice was accompanied by a solemn shake of her pretty head.
"Well," she rose and removed the furs from the front of George Wash-
ington, "as you say, I guess Lucille will remain at your mother's all night,
so !'ll be going." Bi!ly's heart filled with joy, then sorrow.
"By the way, we are having a party, my return home, you know," said
Betty, smiling sweetly. "I sent you and Lucille an invitation-probably you
haven't received it yetg you'll come, won't you? Dad is anxious to meet
you, he has heard so much about you." H
Billy heard footsteps in the hall. Suffering cats! l-larry Bradsford.
"Hello, Bill! !'m late, but-well, of all things, Betty Barrington, when
did you get back?" . K
"l'!arry! l declare it's good to see you again. How is Aunt Hilda? l
just returned Saturday. l called to see 'Lucille to congratulate her, but she
isewhy, I didn't know you were a friend of l..ucille's husband?" Then,
turning to Billy, who was in extreme danger of jumping out of the window,
added, "Harry is my cousin, Mr. Bromley."
"lVlr. Brom-Lucille's husband! Oh, Lord, oh! For the love of Mike!"
and Harry gave vent to roars of laughter. "Why, Betty, he isn't-" but
Harry was off again in fits of laughter. -
"What's the matter with him?" Betty appealed to Billy. "You see, Miss
Barrington," Billy said hastily, hoping l-larry would take his cue, "Harry
doesn't know that Lucille and l are married."
"Oh, cut it, Billy! !V!arried! You? Why, Betty, he is no more married
than you are. Why, Billy Weston was never-"
"Billy Weston! Why, l thought he was William Bromley, !..ucille's hus-
band. He said he was--oh!" and Betty's eyes filled with tears, 'whereat
Billy could have struck Harry over the head with the much prized bust of
"Harry, l thought all your gentlemen friends were gentlemen: I didn't
think you associated with cads, cheats-" she turned flercely on Billy, "Oh,
you-you-! can't say-l-larry, take me home at once!"

"Well, you won," said Billy sadly, looking at the face of George Wash-
ington, "but man, l've discovered it's a good deal harder to lie than to tell
the truth, and as for I-larry-well, just wait!" and Billy ruffled his hair, raised
his shirt sleeves and looked altogether like the villain in a play. A half hour
later l-larry again unceremoniously entered Billy's rooms. ' I
"Harry, if you don't want me sent up for murder, keep out of here. Of
all the boobs! of all the stupids! Good glory, man, are you minus all-oh!
l can't talk to you-l could-"
"No, you couldn't," said I-larry, good-naturedlyg 'UI own I was rather
"Rather,'r' put in Billy, dryly. ,
"But I fixed it up all right."
"Oh, you did? Very kind of you, l'm sure," said Billy sarcastically.
"Oh, you fixed it all right!" t
"Now, listen hereg when we got outside Betty cooled down a bit and
explained to me how she'must have received the wrong address and mistook
you for Lucille's husband and how handsomely you lied-I beg pardon, Billy,
but-" . : -fl
"Yes, I lied," Billy retorted, "but what was I to do? A girl comes intci
my room, starts talking five hundred words a minute. It wasn't till after
she was in the room a few minutes that I awoke to the situation, and it was
too late to tell her her mistake, so I just lied out of it-was doing fine, too,
considering she was just going to go when you--oh, Harry, you spilled the
beans! You have no more tact than-"
"Than you have yourself," Harry finished for him.
"But goodness, man, let me get a word in edgewisel After Betty
explained, I saw the predicament you were in, so I told her you meant well,
and what a fine fellow you are fyou see, I'm something of a liar myselfl,
so she said, as you were a friend of mine she'd still hold good that invitation
to her party-that. is, if you behave yourself in the meantime and be a
good boy." '
"Harry, you're a trump! Forgive me, old fellow, I spoke hastily: I'm
sorry, and say," as he gave Harry an unrnerciful slap on the back, "that
little cousin of yours is a dream!"

'Q 1 ' Q.-1
WHEN A lVIAN'S IN LOVE
BY EVELYN MURRAY, '18
Teddy had a girll
His heart swelled with pride and admiration at the -very thought of her.
It mattered not that Jack Blewitt thought she wasn't pretty. Teddy knew
better. His Caroline had long bobbing curls and blue eyes and pink cheeks.
Also, she had a pony-cart.
Tecl's mother shook her head at the pony-cart, and termed the much
adored curls "corkscrews." She also observed that the blue eyes were far
too shrewd and worldly-wise.
But all this Ted did not know, and knowing not, he dreamt fair dreams of
his beloved, and worshiped her with all his heart. What man would not?
He thought of her now as, dusty and tired, he sat in the sun on the hard,
baked clay of the river bank, angling for what seemed to be imaginary fish.
He wished Caroline were in his class at school instead of being one grade
below him. Then he might walk home from school with her. If only the
third grade weren't dismissed so much earlier than the fourth! Such thoughts,
however, did not help him to enjoy the heat, and as his patience was no
longer than his luck, Teddy drew in his line and prepared to start home.
Rescuing his bicycle from the shade of a straggling tree down the levee,
he pedalecl fast and furiously, and soon reached the shady streets of town.
Some girls were jumping rope on the corner nearhis home. Did his eyes
deceive him, or was it- Yes, it was Carolinel With eyes for no one else,
he stopped, grinning amiably. Admiration shone from his eyes, as he ven-
tured the momentous Words, "Hello, Caroline." L'
Caroline turned and surveyed him slowly. Then, with an undeniably
aristocratic toss of her head, she shook the Ucorkscreweyn curls and-turned
up her nose.
Ted's lip quivered, and querulously he put the question, "What's the
ul never saw any one as dirty as you are, Teddy White. Why don't you
get cleaned up once in a while?" i
Sadly crestfallen, he looked at Caroline, and then he surveyed his own
tousled form. One glance downward was sufficientg he was indeed dis-
reputable. V '
Caroline's friends huddled together, watching and listening, some with
big eyes and open mouths, some with ill concealed smirks and giggles.
It was too much for Ted. His wounded pride flamed up, and with blazing
words he let his masculine wrath descend impartially on "the whole darn
bunch of sissies."
Nevertheless, he noticed that Ora Wright was undaunted by his outburst.
She actually smiled at Caroline and turned to leavej announcing blandly,
"Well, l'm going. A quarrel isn't half as interesting to me as the wild west
show they're having down at Joe's." She struttecl away in mock solemnity,
turning to add archly, "They have engaged me for their leading lady, you
To older ears the statement might have seemed slightly incongruousg to
Ted it was a trumpet call to action. With fascinated gaze, he watched Ora
depart. She was a nice girl, after all. Of course, her hair didn't curl, but on
the end of each brown braid, she wore a big red bow. Now Caroline's bows
were prim and stiff, but Ora's were what Ted's father would have called
"nifty." Something to that effect passed through Ted's mind now. He
knew some people called Ora a tomboy, but he didn't agree with them. Any-
how, she was good natured and jolly. She didn't mind a little dirtg she was
in his class at school-and sometimes she let the boys walk home with her.
That was enough for Ted. With a triumphant leer, he turned his back on
Caroline and shouted lustily, "Say, Ora, wait a minute. l'm coming, too."
Such is the heart of a man! Q
. BY M. P., '19
As he put one foot out of bed he paused to yawn broadly and run his
fingers through his tumbled black pompadour. I-le stretched every one of
his lazy muscles to their full lengthg then another yawn, and he arose from
the bed. Suppressing the succeeding yawn with' the palm of his hand, he
walked wearily to the bird's-eye maple dresser and, looking in the mirror,
rubbed his swollen eyelids. He stopped. Hearing noises in the street below,
he took a few steps to the window and, pulling back the curtain, glanced
at the scene below.
Several young men and girls were standing on the lawn which surrounded
one of the most fashionable homes of Richmond. The three men were clad
in khaki and as their voices floated across the street the young man watching
from behind the window curtain knew they were talking about their coming
departure from Richmond for service in France.
Little did the eavesdropper know he was the principal object of discussion
among the group of young people across the streetl
"I think it's perfectly terrible," declared a young girl as she poked the
end of her white slipper into the soft tuft of grass. "l'le'll be twenty-one
years old in two more weeks, and to think he won't enlist now when the
rest of you boys are going!" I
"Oh, come there now, Gwen," interrupted a caller in khaki. "lf Winslow
won't enlist now, he won't, that's all. I-le says he owes the Kaiser no grudge,
so he doesn't intend to fight for Uncle Sam until he has to."
"Well, I'1l just tell you," broke in Gwen as she clenched the grass between
her soft palms, "if-" A
"Don't let it go off," cautioned another khaki-clad caller. He held up
his hands in mock defense. Gwen brushed back her brown hair angrily, and
the words fell hotly from her lips.
"Well, if he won't enlist of his own accord, he ought to be made to,"
she exclaimed emphatically.
A bright idea came into the mind of each person in theigroup, but they
were rather slow to grasp the idea at first until Dick Bartell cried out,
"We'll do itl By jove,- we willl" and he clapped his hand roughly on
the shoulder of his companion. A '
"But what if it doesn't succeed-"
"Succeed?" interrupted Dickg "I have an idea that we can change his
opinion as to the grudge he owes the Kaiser, anyway. I-le'll know .what it
is to sleep away from home Without his little pink nightie for one night."
The enthusiastic group looked at Gwen. A slight frown had knitted
her brow. They knew how she felt toward Edward Winslow and it had
been an established fact that she had refused him because of his cowardice
in facing the world and trying to make a man of himself.
"Well, Gwen-? ' '
She laughed and tossed her head back. "lt's a wager," she said, "but
I won't tell what the wager is. Come on, we'll do it," and she led the group
into the house.

Sleepily, Edward Winslow awoke once more, but this time he did not
yawn. The hardness of the bed made him rise and sit on its edge. He
looked about at the small room, the four walls and-. "Well, what in the
deuceln he ejaculated as he saw the iron bars in the door. "What! Well,"
he exclaimed hotly. "Hey, come here, you!" But no one came.
What could it mean? He felt queer, as if he had taken something.
"That's it!" he cried: "l've been drugged." l-le arose and grabbed hold of
the iron bars, which he tried to shake, but they were immovable.
"Hey, you!" he shouted again. Still no answer.
He returned to the jail cot and looked about. He rummaged about
among his clothes and suddenly he found a note pinned to his coat.
' "Well! Worse and more of it!" he exclaimed hotly. "!'ll get even
with the fellow that played this trick on me, you bet."
He unfolded the note and read: K
"You needn't try to get out of there, Ed. We thought the jail was the
best place for you to find fault with the Kaiser. Now, Ed, are you ready
to leave with us tomorrow, or are you going to be a slacker? The jail is
the proper place for slackers.
- "Yours, V
"Bound for France."
"Well, I'll be darned," and then, "Of all things! Wouldn't l like to wring
their necks for them!"
He heard a jingle of keys and instantly he jumped to the iron door. A
little man stood there, smiling.
"!'luh!" he exclaimed.
Edward Winslow looked at him and then glared.
"I-luh! l'd like to know what you've got to do shutting me in this place,"
he retorted. "This place is only fit for-"
"Now, now, young man!" the old man grinnedg "none of that. You
were brought here last night with the word that you were to stay here until
"Well, look here," muttered the prisoner, "can't you see this is a joke?
My friends have tricked me into this."
The keeper looked dubious. "You was asleep when you came in.
"Stewed? Man alive, no," and he sank down on the cot, but instantly
jumped up and stifled a shout as he continued:
"Say, l've got to get even with those fellows. You'Ve got to help me out.
The little man nodded and chuckled to himself as he thought of the
Some two hours later, three gentlemen were ushered into the prisoner's
cell. No one was there except the jail keeper. He handed them a note and
turned away to hide his smile. The three in khaki read the note in silence
until it fell to the floor.
"My Lordl Suicide!" Dick Bartell cried out, "Come on, boys, we're in
for it now," and he rushed from the jail with his two companions at his heels.
A few minutes later they crept into the parlor at Gwen's home.
"Gwen," Dick called, "Oh, Gwen," and he leaned against the door.
"Gwenl" he called still louder, as he heard footsteps, "lt's all over. I-le's
committed suicide: why-"
I-le stopped and stared for there, sitting on the divan beside Gwen was
Edward Winslow jr., clad in khaki. I-le glanced at Gwen and noted her face
was unusually rosy as she put her hand to her hair to arrange the mismanaged
"Boys," she laughed as she saw their faces covered with cold perspiration
from their recent flight. "lt's my wager. Meet Edward Winslow Jr., who
leaves tomorrow for France."
"HIS LITTLE FRENCH BOY."
When Bob Graham was a lad he had two ambitions. One was, that when
he grew big and strong, he could buy his widowed mother a home and care
for her forever. The other was, that someday he would become a brave
soldier and honorably defend the rights of his country.
As time flew on, Bob was left with but one of his ambitions to dream
about. The struggle to provide the necessities of life for Bob and herself had
proved too much for Mrs. Graham. She left nothing to her child but her
blessing and a beautiful remembrance of mother love. So the little fellow
was taken to an orphanage where he spent cheerless years waiting for the
glorious day when he would be a soldier.

"l'lelpl l'lelpl" This terrified cry rent the air in a section of northern
France one summer evening. The young American soldier on patrol duty
at the big allied encampment, stopped short and listened intently. I-le could
hear the clatter of horse's hoofs coming nearer and nearer. Suddenly round
a turn in the road dashed a wild-eyed, runaway horse with a boy clinging
around its neck. Dropping his gun the soldier sprang forward and seized the
bridle. A few wild plunges and then the horse stood trembling with fright.
The rescuer carried the fainting boy to the roadside. He laid him down,
unbuttoned his coat, and attempted to remove his old slouch hat, but it was
secured in some inconceivable way.
- l-le was a delicate looking young French boy. A douse of cold water
opened his big, black eyes and he smiled faintly. "You saved my life! hank
"Oh, that's all right, my lad. Where are you going?" as the lad rose
ul stole away from home and thought l'd slip over here to say 'hello' to
my uncle." ,
"Who is your uncle?" questioned Bob.
"He is a 'soldier of France' in General Le Sage's regiment. You are an
American soldier. What is your name?"
'Tm Bob Graham, 45th Michigan Infantry."
l'm Paul-Paul Coppee. Aren't you lonesome so far from home?"'
l have no home but I do get lonesome lots of times."
l have no real home, either. l live with my uncle and aunt.
"Well, my horse is so worn out l'd better return home. l'm going to write
you to thank you for saving my life and to keep you from getting so lonesome.
Au revoir." ' r
With this Paul rode away leaving Bob to wonder if they would ever meet
After a short ride Paul turned into the park of a large estate. .As he drew
near the house, excited voices were heard. Dismounting Paul entered the
hall and was greeted by the agitated aunt. "Pauline Coppeel Where have
you been? And in such a garbl l feared some German patrol had captured
you. Don't you ever leave these grounds again without a proper escort."
Pauline, or Paul as she was generally called, devoted the next few moments
to quieting her frantic aunt, explaining that she only intended to be gone a
short time, just long enough to tell Uncle August "hello." Then she told how
her horse had become frightened when passing a ruin, had run away with her,
and how a brave, young American soldier had rescued her at the risk of his
life. "And auntie, l've deceived him completely. He thinks l'rn a boy, and
doesn't know that my uncle is General Le Sage, instead of a private soldier.
But l'rn going to write him a letter to thank him again. Auntie, l'm sure he
is a splendid young man."
The aunt gave her consent reluctantly to the letter and they agreed that
the escapade should be kept a secret for fear of incurring General Le Sage's
displeasure at his niece's writing to a strange soldier.
as -is -'11 vs 56 as -in as
Bobfs regiment had been moved to the front line trenches. Even there
he received his weekly letter from "his little French boy," Paul. He had
grown to look forward to these cheery letters and he had formed a deep
attachment for his little friend through their correspondence.
Bob was not as lonesome now as he used to be for, by his hard work and
strict appliance to his duty, he had risen to the rank of sergeant and had many
duties to perform.
There had been no heavy fighting yet but momentarily his regiment was
expecting' an order to move forward and dislodge the enemy from the crest
of an adjacent hill. All realized how perilous this undertaking would be, but
every man in the trench was anxious for the order to go "over the top."
Bob's company occupied the center position and according to orders would
form the peak of the charge. The signal to charge came. Over the top the
men clambered and the dash across "No lVlan's Land" began. The enemy
turned loose upon the advancing men a withering fire from cannon, machine
gun, and rifle. Hundreds of soldiers were mowed down, but undaunted, their
comrades swept onward. The thunder of the cannons and the boom of
bursting shells was deafening. The field was shrouded with a cloud of heavy
smoke. As they surged forward Bob's lieutenant fell at his side, a victim of a
Boche bullet. '
Bob realized the added burden of his position. His men had commenced
to waver under the terrific fire, and he sprang into their midst with the
determination to carry them forward or die. I-lis example inspired the men.
They ran forward, following him into the enemy's trench. ' A few moments of
fierce fighting, then the enemy was driven from the hill. Reinforcements
arrived, and the position was firmly held.
During' the battle Bob was severely wounded through the left shoulder
but he continued to encourage his men until reinforcements came. Then he
fell unconscious from loss of blood.
When he revived, he opened his eyes in strange surroundings. ,He was
at a loss to understand how he came there until the nurse, who sat by his
bedside, explained that, on account of the crowded hospitals, .General Le Sage
had offered his home for the accommodation of the wounded American
soldiers, and Bob had been one of several taken there.
"The general left word that he wished to be called when you wereiable to
talk," said the nurse. "I'll call him now."
Bob's review of his terribleexperience during the battle was interrupted
by the entrance of a French general accompanied by Colonel Allen of Bob's
regiment. Bob attempted to salute, but was too weak to do'so. The colonel
came to his bedside, saying, "My man, l'm glad you're alive! You fought
nobly in yesterday's battle. l'rn proud of you!
"l have been authorized to hand you herewith, a commission ,as a captain
in my regiment. Your action, when the command of the troop fell upon you,
saved the day for our army. It was not known at the time the charge was
ordered, how formidably fortified the location your company went against
was. Not until it was too late for retreat, did the Germans unmask those
terrible hidden guns. I-lad you not rallied the remnant of your company, we
should have lost the position."
Bob greatly surprised at his elevation in rank was now introduced to
General Le Sage. I-le also, praised the valor of Bob and his company in the
hard struggle. ,
While the men were talking two ladies had entered the room whom the
general now presented as his wife and niece, Pauline. "I leave you at their
mercy. The colonel and I must return to the field. Good luck to you!" were
his parting words as he and Colonel Allen left.
Pauline was greatly amazed when she found that the brave, young
American soldier, whom she had heard her uncle speak of, was noneother
than her friend Bob. She confided to her aunt that he was they soldier with
whom she, under the guise of a boy, was corresponding. They wondered
whether or not he would recognize her as "his little French boy." But Bob's
mind was confused by the rapid chain of events that had occurred and he did
not connect his little Paul with Pauline, General l..e Sage's beautiful niece.
As Pauline sat with him several hours each day, he began to realize two
things. In the first place, he was falling in love with her, and in the second,
Pauline reminded him of some one else, of an elusive, intangible some one
whom he could not place. Where had he heard that voice? One day he
remembered! "His little French boy" had the same accent!
I-le would ask Pauline if she had a relative by the name of Paul Coppee.
It couldn't be a brother because her name must be Le Sage although he'd never
heard anyone mention it. A
As "his little French boy" was brought to mind, Bob wondered why he
hadn't received any letters from him since he was wounded, but concluded
that his mail would be awaiting him when he returned to camp. E
, Bob soon recovered. On the day before his return to the firing line, he
asked Pauline if she knew a young man by the name of Paul Coppee. Her
face turned pink and, walking to the window she questioned, "Why clo you
Bob then explained that heihad a friend by that name who reminded him
of her. "l would have thought it was your brother, if your name was Coppeef'
he told her. ,
Turning from the Window Pauline blushingly replied, "But my name is
"Whatl lsn't it Le Sage?"
UNO. l'rn the daughter of Uncle August's sister. My father, who was a
captain in the French navy, lost his life at sea. My mother died when l was
but eight years of age. My home has since been here."
"Why then, you must be related to my little French boy, Paul!" Bob
"Yes, l am," answered Pauline with a smile.
At this Bob started, looked at her intently, then a light swept over him
and he knew. "Why Pauline! Pauli It was youl You, are my little French
Pauline's face was a confession. There was something, too, in her eyes
that gave Bob such courage as he had never dreamed of possessing.
The next day Captain Bob Graham left the place where happiness had
come to him. l-le went back to the firing line with a dangerous gleam in his
eyes that boded no good for the poor Boches. For Pauline had promised,
that as soon as the great victory was won, she would become truly "his little
THE HOLBROOK MURDER CASE
BY HARRY BUCKALEW
'ipolice office. Sergeant Mulbank speaking. What's that you say?
You're night watchman, Perry? Lawyer Holbrook murdered? l'll be down
in ten minutes. l2l9 Central avenue. All right."
For a moment the officer sat thinking. "Guess l'll get Abdul," he mused
to himself. "He is the best man I know on murder cases."
He took up the telephone and called. "ls this Nyrissa?" he asked, upon
getting the party. "Tell Abdul to come to the police office as soon as possible,
please." He hung up the receiver and waited.
Abdul Pashim was a man from the east, but no one really knew what his
native country was. He had come to America while young, and settled in
the crystal-gazing and mind-reading business. He was now not over thirty,
but was fairly well-to-do. When Nyrissa came to call him, he was seated in
his study, smoking a nargile. His clothes consisted of a loose, highly colored,
Oriental robe, soft slippers, and a turban. Although his eyelids were half
closed, his dark, shining eyes flashed. His quick gaze was restless and seemed
to indicate a fine, high-strung, nervous temperament. The finely 'moulded
features, sharp aquilline nose, thin, tightly pressed lips, and firm chin, the soft
skin, all showed refinement.
About him on the couch were several expensive volumes on mind-reading,
hypnotism and kindred subjects. On the elegant hardwood floors were
beautiful, soft Persian rugs. The walls were adorned with Oriental, paintings,
and the whole atmosphere of the place was quiet and elegant. I
Nyrissa was also a foreignerg a little younger than Abdul and very pretty.
She glided into the room, bowed and informed her master of the message.
When he nodded assent, she withdrew. He had helped the officer before,
so the present call did not surprise him. He had been motionless before.
Now he was alert and quick. He made his changes rapidly and noiselessly,
issuing forth upon the street a moment later in ordinary American garb.
"Here you are," exclaimed Sergeant Nlulbank, "let's go."
They reached the building within a few minutes of the appointed time.
The watchman met them at the door.
Abdul immediately took charge. "Tell us what you know," he requested.
"lVlr. Holbrook came back to his office after supper, presumably for some
extra work," began Perry. "His stenographer, Miss Cook, came with him.
No one else has been here except a Mr. Hart, who is of the same profession
as lVlr. Holbrook. He is on the ninth Hoorg Mr. Holbrook on the tenth.
Everything was all right on my eight o'clock rounds. l worked in the base-
ment between then and ten, fixing the furnace. At ten when l made my
rounds l found Mr. Holbrook's door open and he, sitting in his chair, head
on one side, shot through the heart. No one has seen the stenographer since.
That's all, with one addition, no shot was heard."
"Thank you. Come. We'll see the elevator boy next." Abdul was
They entered the elevator and directed the boy to take them to the
ninth floor. The elevator started with a jolt which upset the boy's balance.
As he stepped back a pace, Abdul stooped, picked up a small object and
slipped it into his pocket. When he questioned the boy as to the murder,
he started, denied all knowledge of it and then seemed very much interested
in the details. He declard that no one had left the building since eight.
Abdul, Sergeant Mulbank, and Perry got off at -the ninth floor. A light
was burning in Mr. Hart's room. lVlulbank called an officer to prevent any-
one's getting out. Then they went to the tenth and sought out'Mr. Hol-
brook's room. Abdul examined the body and then the room. "There was
a struggle," he declared. r
"How do you know?" queried Mulbank.
"See the calendar hanging by one corner? Mr. Holbrook was seated
here after he was killed."
A careful search of the room revealed only a woman's ring on a wash-
stand in a far corner of the room. "Call the coroner, Perry. We'll see lVlr.
Hart," he announced abruptly.
The watchman rejoined them and on the way down said, "There was
a quarrel between Mr. Holbrook land Mr. Hart. Some money Mr. Hart had
loaned Mr. Holbrook was overdue, and Mr. Holbrook couldn't pay. Only
today lVlr. Hart was heard to threaten him. I think you'll find your party
They descended and rapped on Hart's door. "Come in," called a firm

Abdul, his dark eyes shining, Ml suppose you know that Mr. Holbrook was
"-evening," continued Abdul, unheecling the interruption. "We have
cause to suspect you on account of your trouble with him."
"He paid the money this afternoon," said Hart.
"Let me see the gun," demanded Abdul. It was a six-shooter with a
Silencer. One shell was discharged. "How did that happen?" asked Abdul,
pointing to it.
"l shot a cat across on the other building this evening," returned Hart'
"Shot a cat. Hal hal Good story! No shot was heard when Mr. Hol-
brook was shotg this gun has a silencer. You've got him, officer." All this
from the watchman. His mind was set.
Meanwhile Abdul had crossed to the window and looked out. The
moon was up and the surroundings clear in its light. It was but a short
distance to the other building. Half was roof, but the other half continued
To the amazement of the other two, Abdul handed back the gun and
said, "Very well, Mr. Hart. Good night." -
Once outside, the watchman expostulated, "Why didn't you arrest him?
He's guilty, isn't he?"
. "Patience, man!" returned Abdul. "Let me explain. ln the first place,
Mr. Hart was frank and sincere, as I know men. Secondly, Mr. Holbrook
was killed by a large caliber pistol. Mr. Hart's was small. Lastly, I looked
over on the opposite roof. The cat must have fallen off or been removed,
but on the opposite wall the black paint had been chipped off the stone, down
low, leaving a white spot. It was fresh. Mr. Hart spoke the truth and is
W "Guess number one gone," said Mulbank. E
"Have the officers search for the girl, lVlulbank,'f directed Abdul. "She
must be here, for no one has left 'the building." , .
Hisassertion was correct, for she was found, cowering in a corner on the
sixth floor. She did not speak a word, nor could they make her until Abdul
confronted her with the ring. She seemed terrified and when she spoke
her voice was high-pitched from fright. "Where did you get it?"
This time Mulbank was the positive one. "Now you've got her," he
asserted with conviction.
Abdul, however, evidently had other ideas. He seemed hardly interested
in her now. "What's the elevator boy's name?" he asked the watchman.
"James Phillips, sir."
'ion what terms were he and the girl?" Abdul was interested.
"Very close, I should say." -
"lf you had told everything at first, you'd have saved time," said Abdul
rather ungraciously. "Call him, please."
He came, and in a tone bearing something of injured dignity, wanted
to know why he was summoned again. '
"Are you sure you told me everything you know about this murder?"'
Abdul's voice was hard, and his eyes were fixed intently on the boy. He
had not paid much attention to him at first, but now he eyed him closely.
The fellow was about twenty-one, tall and rather good looking. He was
well dressed and neat, and his face bright and intelligent. Abdul could
easily see how the girl was attracted to him.
Phillips, upon being questioned as to his veracity, looked offended, and
replied in the affirmative.
"Who do you think is guilty?" asked Abdul of his two companions.
Phillips' eyes were on the Floor, but only Abdul noticed it.
'Tm not so sure but what Hart is, after all," declared Perry, the watch-
"The girl, certainly," Mulbank was sure.
Abdul knew his game and also human nature. The others did not. "Just
see that young Phillips does not skip," whispered Abdul in Perry's ear. He
went downstairs. "Just as I thought," he murmured to himself when he
reached the basement. 1
When he came up again he was ready. "You're arrested for the murder
of Mr. Holbrook." '
Phillips raised his eyes to find the dark ones of Abdul almost piercing
him. ln Abdul's hand was an ugly looking revolver with a silencer attached.
He knew it was the gun that had killed Holbrook. "It's all up," he muttered
Perry and Mulbank were dumbfounded. "How did you know?" both
gasped in the same breath.
Abdul pulled from his pocket a piece of paper through which a thumb
tack was stuck. "Picked it up in the elevator," he announced brieflly. "Did
you notice the calendar hanging by one corner? Here is the other corner
and what held it. They fought, probably over the girl, tore this down and
Phillips stepped on it. It came off in the elevator."
"The girl nearly fooled me for some time, This young fellow's down-
cast gaze, and that little history righted me. The ring she must have left
while washing. It only identified her. The gun? While you, Perry, were
on your rounds, he threw it in the furnace. He knew you had just fixed
it and therefore it was the most unlikely place to be looked into. The fire
tomorrow would have destroyed all evidence."
"You're right about the fight," said Miss Cook, brightening. "Jimmy
and Mr. Holbrook fought over me. Mr. Holbrook tried to kiss me. Jimmy
heard me yell While passing and came to my assistance. Mr. Holbrook
tried to shoot him, but somehow Jimmy got hold of the gun. When it Went
off, it was Mr. Holbrook who was shot. We were both badly scared and
resolved to say nothing of it. Jimmy put Mr. Holbrook in the chairgwhile
I ran and hid. We'd have gone when Jimmy's time was up. No one would
have suspected us. But Jimmy was right and I'll stick by him," she finished.
"They're both young and were pretty badly scared," commented Abdul.
"I think it will come out all right. Take them along, Sergeant. l'll see
A few days later Abdul, reading the newspaper, chuckled to himself.
Two notices caused his rnerriment. The first read, "james Phillips Held
Blarneless for Killing Lawyer Holbrook. Stenographer, Miss Cook, Star
Witness." The second, "Licensed to Wed-James Phillips, 21, and Con-
stance Cook, 20, both of this city." .
WHAT A STORM CAN DO
It was a wild night. The snow which had been falling for days had
turned into a furious rainstorm. Between the flashes of chain lightning and
the heavy peals of thunder, the rain poured down in torrents, terrorizing
the strongest-hearted. ' It was midnightg yet no one in the little village of
Kermit had retired. The night was too eerie for that.
ln a little cottage on the outskirts of town Mrs. Warrington and her
twenty-year-old daughter Lydia huddled around the fire.
"lt is so silly to be frightened by a storm," Lydia laughed, "but this is
the worst thunder that l've ever heard. It sounds as if the heavens are
being torn into shreds."
"Yes, it is dreadful. I am especially afraid of the lightning, as it has
done so much damage around here. However, l am sure it will calm down
K Neither spoke for a while. Suddenly Lydia gave a startled exclamation,
"Do you suppose there is any danger of the darn breaking? You remember
that Mr. Landon told the men to Watch it carefully if there happened to be
a severe storm."
"Oh, no," answered Mrs. Warrington, "do not worry about that."
As she spoke, footsteps sounded on the porch and someone rapped
loudly at the door. Lydia flew to open it. I
"The dam is weakening. Gather together your valuables and come to
Fulton Hill at once. Everyone will be safe there. I must hurry on and
warn the others."
Before the watchman of the dam had finished his warning, Mrs. War-
rington had started to collect her treasures. Lydia brought out their coats
and hats and soon they were on the way to the hill of safety. A crowd
had already gathered there. Many of the women were in tears, fearing
that their homes would be washed away by the flood. Mrs. Warrington
and her daughter went among them, trying to comfort them, and in that
way helping to comfort themselves. ln a little while the inhabitants of Kermit
were settled on Fulton Hill, waiting for the break.
'il reckon the dam cannot hold more than an hour longer," the watch-
man said. "Thank God, everyone is safe!"
"Where is Hudson Marr?" someone in the crowd asked.
"Good Lord! he went to his ranch today. It is right in line with the
reservoir and in that narrow valley," one of the men cried excitedly.
"lf he doesn't get word of the danger, he wi!! be drowned. It will -be
impossible for him to swim out," another added.
"Hudson Marr in danger!" Lydia felt her heart turn to lead. "Why
didn't someone go to him quickly? This was no time in which to delay."
"Won't someone volunteer to warn him?" Lydia questioned.
No one responded. '
"Someone must go at once," she persisted.
"lt would be foolish to try to reach his ranch on this kind of a night,"
!V!r. Calvert explained. "Anyone attempting it would be killed before he
got half way there. Look at this lightning and hear the falling trees."
"Then l will go myself. Get me a horse quickly. Do not try to stop
me. Get me the horse at once. No time can be lost."
Dazed by her daring, someone brought her a horse. Springing to the
saddle, she flashed off without a word. Her mother fell to her knees, praying
for her daughter's safety. The men felt ashamed of their cowardliness, yet
they knew that it would be a miracle if she reached the ranch. Q
But Lydia had no fear-Hudson must be saved even if she died in saving
him. She did not seem to notice the storm-her mind was centered on the
one in. danger. The crash of a falling pine in front of her brought her to
her senses and she spurred her horse to greater speed. Several times the
horse was halted by fallen trees, but he seemed to have sensed the need
for hurrying and scrambled over them valiantly.
Now her greatest anxiety was over! The ice on the river had not melted
and she could cross. The ranch was just a little way farther now. Yes, it
was very close, for soon she saw, by the light of a Hash of lightning, the
farm house in front of her. A minute more brought her to the doorstep.
"I-ludson! Hudson!" she called above the clamor of the storm.
"What's the matter?" I-ludson's startled voice answered.
"The dam is breaking! Save yourself!" '
Then darkness. l
A few hours later, Lydia opened her eyes again. The storm had disap-
peared and the east was brightening. Kneeling beside her was Hudson.
"Do you feel all right, Lydia?" he inquired anxiously.
"Yes," she answered. "l am so glad you are safe. Did the dam break?"
"Just a little while after l reached this hill with you. If it were not for
you, l'd probably be in Davy Jones' locker now."
"Please don't talk of it," she said. "Thank heaven, you are saved!"
"There is a verse," said Hudson gently, "which reads something like
this: 'He who saves his life shall-lose it.' My life is saved, but it is also
lost-it belongs to you forever."

Shcnwing Happiness May Blend With Sorrow.

Fleurette knelt inpprayer midst the ruins of the only home she had ever
known. l'ler Worldly goods were in a bundle beside her naked feet. The
bowed head and tightly clenched hands were mute testimony of the torn soul.
The girl threw herself to the ground and her outraged heart gave way
to hard, dry sobs. Tears would not come. She had shed every tear in her
emaciated body. ' .
Destruction where but a' short while before all had been fertile fields.
Fleurette looked upon the toll the war god had taken. Her father, likewise
her brothers, had all fallen before the brutality of the Prussian raiders. The
mother, worn by worry, passed away a short time before the shell struck
the village. l-ler sister--Fleurette did not know her fate. And they had
all been so happy. The home had been one of the many along the narrow
street, at the end of which was the tiny white church.
The girl looked towards the beautiful sung a cloud, dark and sinister,
was passing across it. "See," she 'exclaimed aloud as it drifted away in the
heavens, "the cloud cannot always hide ione's sun." Such is the true
philosophy of Belgium's children.
The Commission from the Red Cross had been watching the scene. The
women's pitying hearts filled their eyes with tears.
Fleurette suddenly arose to her feet and flung her arms high. nl will
be brave for Belgium," she cried. A
At this point the women advanced towards her. They made clear to
her that she should be taken to a Red Crossihlospital where she would be
safe. Then Fleurette spoke of her love for her native land. "Nature painted
a picture of peace and beauty and happiness and called it Belgium," she
cried, "but the Germans came and laid their ruthless hands upon it, and
now the torn masterpiece waits the dawn of a happier day for its restoration."
Her listeners marveled that out of this chaos she should see a ray of light.

- There was a lull in the fighting. Robert Weston, American, sat before
his dugout and smoked his worn pipe. It was a time for reflection. Death
longed for him. And he was ready.
His aimless life passed before him. l-le remembered the fine old home
in San Francisco. Memory of the squandering of his wealth shamed him.
l-le had thrown it away on lavish dinners and false friends. The money from
one of those dinners could have fed a small French village. And he remem-
bered I-lelen-the girl who had jilted him' for a man of higher position.
What a fool he had been! l-le remembered bitterly what had followed.
Shunning the sympathy of his friends, he had plunged into wild dissipation.
And then the reaction. l'le thanked God that it had come before both his
fortune and himself had been irrevocably lost. The letters of the French
and Belgian proteges had saved him. Those simple children, who in their
gratitudebelieved him a true American. Their believing in him suddenly
made him believe in himself. l-le was filled with self-hate. Then he donned
the khaki. What an empty life had been his! ln truthg Robert Weston would
have been a man's man in a different environment.
His eye pictured the peace in America-his country. Homes were not
shell-torn. The lives of the multitude continued as before. The signs of
war were the service flags in the windows. Robert's musings were shattered.
The enemy had made an attack!
AC vs is 6 , 6 an
Days after, the lighting was at its height. Suddenly a bomb sped on
the air from the enemy. A minute later Robert Weston was paralyzed with
indescribable fear. A bomb in Trench Al I-Ie seemed unable to move. A
fraction of a second and all would be destroyed. His fear left him. I-Ie
became worthy of the khaki he wore. -
"How is the American today?" the head nurse asked! a white-clad girl.
"The monsieur, he has not regained consciousness," Fleurette replied.
Under good care Bob gradually became stronger. I-le would never have
his full physical strength again. But he had gained a soul.
Fleurette, a daughter of Belgium, sat by his bed. I-let dark eyes were
filled with pity. In her hand she held a letter.
"This letter, it is from my god-father," she told her patient. "I-Ie must
be such a fine man-see, he says here that he has adopted four others beside
myself." 'In her eagerness to show him the note she had leaned towards
him: Her soft hair brushed his face and her eyes glowed. She did not see
the pained look in the American's eyes. I-Ie envied her benefactor. For
he had come to love this girl with a soul in her deep eyes.
The man reached out his left hand-his one hand. I-Ie had lost his right
arm at the shoulder. The writing was oddly familiar. The page trembled.
Suddenly it dropped to the bed. I-Ie rested back on the pillows and looked
long and intently on his faithful attendant. Fleurette was alarmed. She did
not know what turn her patient had suddenly taken. I
"What do you think this American looks like?" he asked.
"I should like him to look like monsieur," she replied in her naive manner.
Several weeks later Bob was wheeled out on the wide porch just as the
stars broke through the blue sky. Fleurette was happy. She did not know
who this strange man wasg but she knew she loved him.
"You do not know my name."
"What does a name count, monsieur?"
The man spoke and his voice was serious. "ln this case it counts a great
deal, my dear. I am your god-father, Robert Weston. But I had far rather
be your husband."

Boys, you have all had a first time, no matter how accomplished you
may now appear in the art of smoking. Well, I extend my hearty congratu-
lations to those who have passed this crisis and my heartiest sympathy to
those who have not yet reached this stage in their careers. Indeed, it might
seem somewhat unseemly for me, a girl, to write upon such a subject, but
I assure you that it was a question of my honor, my pride, and my self-respect.
Surely a lady may be excused for anything done fair or foul in defense of
A short time ago I was invited out to dinner. The young man of the
house had recently returned from college. I-Ie was slightly impressed with
his own importance, advising me what course of study to take at school,
telling me what vocation was best suited to me, and kindly undertaking to
plan my life for the next ten years. I was not contented, however, to sit
by and be addressed in this fatherly tone by one not many years my senior.
My blood boiled righteously. I chafed under' the insults that were being
thrust upon me, but I managed to control myself-at least for the time.
After dinner the gentlemen produced their cigarette cases and began
to smoke. My friend, altogether too considerate, extended his case with,
"Won't you have one?"
Still trying to be a perfect lady, no matter how difficult, I replied, "No,
thank you, not just now." What demon prompted me to add "not just
nown? Those three words were indeed my Waterloo.
A little later I was brought somewhat suddenly to earth by hearing the
young man say, "Do you care for one now?" His tone was quite polite and
there was an unmistakable grin upon his Visage, but the tone was too polite,
the grin too broad, and was it my imagination or did he really accent the now?
The crimson rag had indeed been waved before the bull: I saw red.
Without the least thought of the consequences l took one of the contents of
the case. After several attempts, I succeeded in lighting it. The next instant
l imagined that I was being choked to death. lVly first thought was that l
had swallowed the cigarette, but no, there was the obnoxious thing still tightly
clutched in my hand. I took a deep breath, then put the accursed little round
tip again to my lips, this time puffing on it less violently. In a few seconds
I became quite an adept. Indeed I was doing myself proud, so in the due
course of time I finished it. The young man no longer looked on me with
patient tolerance, but greeted me as a comrade. I complimented myself
on my commendable performance, and when the time came for me to make
my adieux, I was in a perfectly contented frame of mind.
On returning home I went into the living room to receive my paternal
caress before retiring. Alasl my clothes were saturated with the odor of
tobacco. But what was still worse, at the critical moment when father stooped
to imprint a kiss upon my brow, l felt myself turning pale, the cords of my
stomach tightened, I fled from the room in terror. It is needless to say that
I spent a miserable night and a still more miserable morning making expla-
nations to my family.
Don jammed his new straw hat down viciously over his red hair. With
bent head, he rounded the corner into'the sweep of the wind, his eyes nar-
rowing against the flying dust. I-le did not see the procession of dainty
French heeled boots and sturdy English shoes that hurried by him, or hear
the newsboys twanging through the crowd, or smell the violets and roses
that blossomed at every corner. Inshort, Don Price was homesick.
He hated the loneliness of the thronging streets, and the evenings at the
Orpheum, and the dinners alone at the hotel. I-le wanted to sit on his own
big veranda back home in New Jerseyg he wanted his sister Helen to pick
a yellow pansy out of her own special bed and put it in his buttonholeg he
wanted to sit at the old piano and bang to his heart's content, but most of
all he wanted a girl-+any kind of a girl would do, but he didn't know one
in all the city. .
A sudden shock sent his hat flying and the wind caught and wheeled
it along the sidewalk. But Don cared not a whit for the hat. He stood
staring into two indignant gray eyes, one of them very red and moist. At
the sight of Don's. reddening face and redder, wind-blown hair the gray
eyes twinkled to a smile and then disappeared into the crowd, leaving him
open-mouthed and speechless.
A small boy captured the truant hat and returned it to Don, who pressed
a shiny new dollar into the grimy little hand and hurried away from the
amused glances of the crowd.
His mouth curved into a tender smile and he nodded his head approv-
ingly. - Maybe San Francisco wasn't so bad after allg he was just beginning
to appreciate it. Of course it was all in getting acquainted. Acquaintedl
The word echoed mockingly in his head. Fool that he was-he didn't even
know her name. With sagging jaw, he shouldered his way through the crowd,
glaring sullenly at everyone who passedi '
A sudden intuitive flash of recognition made him turn to stare after a
small, chubby man who had just squeezed past him. There certainly was
something mighty familiar about that short, red neck and bristly hair. Don
pushed after him and laid a detaining hand on his shoulder. The man
looked at him in astonishment that was rapidly becoming distrust, when
Don blurted out awkwardly:
l think l've seen you before."
I don't think you have," coolly.
Aren't you from the East?" Don ventured.
"Yes," admitted the little man coldly.
"New Jersey?" Don urged breathlessly.
Yes," with dawning interest.
Morristown?" Don roared, beaming expectantly. '
"Yesl" grinned-the man, putting out his hand. "My name's Post."
i'And you lived right around the corner from me." Don gripped the
pudgy hand exultantly. "Don't, you remember the kid that used to make
such a fierce racket on the piano in your neighborhood? That's me-Don
Price. There's nothing to it--you're coming to dinner with me."
But Post grasped him by the elbow and piloted him to a big broiwn
machine that stood at the curb. l-Ie pushed him into the yielding cushions
of the tonneau and clambered in after him, with a word to the chauffeur.
"Believe me, boy, you're not the only one that's homesick. My mother
will be tickled to death to see someone from good old Morristown. And my
kid sister! Just this morning she was raking me over the coals for not getting
acquainted with some interesting boys here. She'd never forgive me if l let
you escape. I didn't know you back home, but you look like a long-lost
cousin to me here." Post stopped long enough for breath and the car drew
up in front of a tall grey house, tapping a series of green terraces. Don
followed his pudgy host up the winding brick steps. Inside, it was warm and
cozy and fragrant with the promise of dinner.
Mrs. Post, tiny and grey and infinitely cordial, plied Don with questions.
Was the new Trinity Methodist church finished yet? Had the Ruggles family
gone to Newport for the summer? Did Evelyn Norton marry that widower
with the three boys? ,
The cross' fire of questions was suddenly checked by the appearance of
Post in the doorway, pulling after him a reluctant Figure. He grinned at Don,
"Sis didn't want to come in because she had a black eye. Some young hope-
ful collided with her today, without so much as a 'pardon'." -
The guest rose and steadied himself by the high back of the chair, staring
stupidly at the girl, who smiled at him with one twinkling grey eye. Then,
gathering her out-stretched hand into his big palm he remarked, apropos of
nothing in particular, "lt's an ill wind that blows nobody good."
BY' JULIA "BUNNY" TUGGLE, '19 '
People will say, "I-low you have grown! lVIy, you're almost a young
lady!" But I really don't feel any older than I did a few years ago, until
I commence to recall the different emotions I felt then, and the violent likes
and dislikes I had when a child. Then I can say, "How time does flyl"
I remember clearly my first love affair. Of course.at the time it occurred
I did not dignify it by any such name. In fact it caused quite a good deal
of concentration on my part to find out what was the matter with my hitherto
unresponsive organ called a heart.
One Monday morning I discovered that I had a void place inside of me
that hurt dreadfully. Even all the cookies I stole from the pantry failed to
fill it. About eleven o'clock, when-I felt as if I could stand the ache no
longer, who should come over but Tommy. Tommy was an unfailing source
of pleasure. I-Ie was about the only child int the neighborhood who was
allowed to play with me, but in this case there was no danger of contamination.
The minute Tommy came in the door I felt bashful, an entirely new
sensation for me, and when he presented me with a thick slice of bread and
jelly I didn't eat it, but put it on a shelf in the yard. Strange to say, a similar
change had come over Tommy, for when he addressed me he no longer
said "Hey," but murmured my name in a soft, mooning voice. I no longer
called him Tommy, but Thomas, which seemed to become him so much more.
In' that one word, expressed in a sort of cooing tone, I was able to sum up
all my affections. It stirred untold dreams within me.
- Once again I picture Tommy and myself in a small boat in the ocean.
We were attacked by a ferocious band of pirates singing 'iFifteen men on
a dead man's chest." E
Tornmy,' taking his "good old knife" from his pocket, brandished it in
the air and proceeded to kill about a hundred pirates. I-le was a hero-my
herog but one of the "bold, bad men" inflicted a wound, and I nursed him
back to life. -
We continued in this sublime state for a few days, I oblivious to every-
thing but my loved one. I-le brought numerous offerings to my shrine. I
placed them all under my bed. By 'Friday I had a piece of bread and jelly,
a dead rat ffound in a rat trap in Tommy's basementl, a piece of putty,
two blue marbles, and some false curls CMrs. Richards, the mother of her
son, did not wear her customary curls when she was over for tea the other
afternoonl. A . , it ,
There is no telling how long this might have lasted if my deeper passion
had not been nipped in the bud one Saturday afternoon when Mary was
sweeping my room. By this time the rat and bread and jelly had begun to
"smell." It was not a pleasant odor, so Mary went on a tour of investigation.
Upon looking under the bed she discovered all my treasured articles. Mary,
astounded, sent for mother and mother sent for me. At first I defended
Tommy bravely, but with each breath I drew I got another whiff of that
rat and my affection for the giver began to diminish. When I told them
how much I loved Tommy, I became aware that I didn't love him at all.
After I was forced to remove the debris from my room, not a coal of my
former devotion remained smouldering in my heart. Thus ended my first
NEAR THE BORDER
BY KEDMA DUPONT
It was late afternoon. The shadows of the ranch house had begun to
stretch out toward the east. The house was not an attractive place, set in. the
midst of a hot, treeless and apparently limitless plain. On the tumbled-down
porch sat a young man, his chair tilted back against the wall, a pile of news-
papers at his side, one of which he was eagerly perusing.
Out of the open door came a man, much older and bearing the marks of
long exposure to sun and hardship. His younger partner, whose real name,
in spite of the fact that he had been christened Clarence, was Bill, looked up
and remarked, "I see you're dressed in the garments of civilization. Going
to San Antonio?"
"Yeh. Business appointment with a fellow there. Jack Smith, bring in
that mail!" -
"Yes," said Bill. "Say, Tom, do you know we're at war with Germany?"
"Well," returned Tom, "I hear you say so. Can't say as I'rn much sur-
prised, though. Don't suppose it means much to us. just keep sending
munitions over to the allies same's we've been doing. Well, l'll be mounting
my trusty steed. Guess she wants a drink first. Where'd you put the
A few minutes later Tom drove the dilapidated machine in front of the
house. "She's got an awful knock in her," he remarked, "but I guess she'll
carry me to San Antonio all right."
I-ie got out and picked up a bundle he had laid on the porch. Bill looked
at him closely for the first time and noticed that he wore his pistol. "Say,"
he remarked, "you look like a wild west show. Don't you know this is a law-
"I reckon," said Tom, patting the holster affectionately, i"I've worn it so
long l canit be without it. And as for this being a law-abiding state,-well
sometimes it is, and then again, sometimes it ain't." And a few minutes later
he was only a cloud of dust to the man on the porch. '
Tom had finished his business and was on the way home in the afternoon
two days later when he came upon a'man and a horse standing by the road-
side. The man, who was bending over the horse's foot, was well dressed,
but the animal was most sorry looking. Tom noticed a small black leather
satchel strapped to the saddle. The ranchman stopped and asked what the
trouble was, to which the stranger replied that he had hired the horse at a
livery stable in San Antonio and now it seemed to have something the matter
with its foot. U -
Tom examined the foot and then said: "I reckon we'd better take him
over to the Dry Creek ranch about a mile from here and they'll return him to
the stable. Where were you heading for?"
"Martinsville," was the reply. '
"Well," said Tom, "that's only about ten miles south of my ranch. l
might as well take you over there, especially as l'd like to see an old friend of
mine who lives there." E
And thus it was arranged, the horse was disposed of, and Tom and the
stranger, who said his name was Jones, continued on their way, the latter
carefully taking along his black satchel, on which he always 'kept a watchful
eye. But the "trusty Steed" did not prove trusty and ran very badly, so that
frequent halts had to be made for repairs.
'il judge," remarked Tom during one of the intervals of smooth running,
"that you're not particularly acquainted with these parts?"
"No," admitted the stranger, 'Tm not." '
"You know Martinsville is about the nearest place hereabouts to the
border. Better look out some of the' greasers don't come over and .take a
shot at you."
Mr. Jones laughed. "l'll take a chance," he said. "I have to go clown
to see about a question of some land, you know."
At this point the engine broke down again, and Tom, declaring they
wouldn't get home in time for breakfast, set to work to fix it. l-le had a
difficult job. and when it was finally finished, the evening glow had passed
and darkness was fast setting in. Tom took stock of their surroundings.
"Well," he said, "we're a long ways from Tipperary and l guess we better
spend the night here." H
Mr. Jones seemed rather bothered by the delay and said it was imperative
for him to get to Martinsville as soon as possible, but Tom promised to land
him there early the next morning. Then he got a few canned provisions from
the machine and set about preparing supper. The stranger helped to the best
of his ability and they had soon finished a hearty meal. Then Mr. Jones
washed' his hands and opened the black satchel to pull out a towel. As he
did so. a small leather case of papers, apparently hurriedly fastened, slipped
Tom picked it up to return it to its owner. "Nice case that," he said, "but
you'd better fasten it more carefully or you'll lose all your papers."
But Jones seemed concerned only in getting it quickly back into the satchel.
at the same time murmuring something about pertaining to the land question.
Tom noticed that a few papers were lying loose in the satchel, but said nothing
more. Then both rolled themselves up in blankets and went to sleep, Jones
with the satchel for pillow. '
Tom was first up the next morning and began preparations for starting,
without waking the other. As he rolled up his blanket, he noticed a sheet of
paper lying on the ground. '
"Looks like one of those papers of Jones," he thought, picking it up and
glancing at it idly. Then its queer appearance struck him. "Doesn't look
like any language I ever saw," he said to himself. "Looks more like one of
them codes." I-Ie examined it closely, then looked at the stranger, and finally
put it in his pocket.
They arrived at Tom's ranch in time to be welcomed by Bill to a hasty
breakfast, and Tom and Bill had a short but very important talk just before
the latter set out again. The machine had scarcely disappeared from view
when Bill mounted his horse and set off at top speed in the direction of the
Tom's machine had an even worse time of it than on the day before.
Stops had to be made every few minutes, while Jones became obviously more
and more anxious. But at last they reached Martinsville. Torn headed
straight for the railroad station. Bill sat astride his horse in front of the little
building and on the platform stood two men, quite ordinary looking, but to
the experienced eye their appearance quite shouted that they were plain-
clothes men. At sight of them Jones turned swiftly toward Tom, at the
same time putting his hand on the door of the machine, only to find himself
face to face with Tom's revolver.
"That's all right, my friend," said the latter. "Just sit still there. And
you needn't make no motion toward your hip pocket."
Jones was safely handed over to the secret service agents, who explained
that he was a German agent escaping into Mexico. They had been on his
track, but he had given them the slip at San Antonio.
When this business was accomplished, Bill came over to his partner.
"Some little day's work," he remarked, joyfully.
"Yes," said Tom, putting back the revolver which he had all the time held
in his hand. "As l believe l've remarked before, there are times when this
state is real law-abiding: also there's times, much too frequent, when- it ain't."
Vernon Grey sat on his cot in his cell, thinking of the past. He recalled
the pretty little orphan girl that he had marriedg of their first quarrel, for
which she had taken the blame when it had been his faultg and of the Van
Pelt fire, for which hehad been sent to prison on circumstancial evidence.
His poor little wife had pleaded his innocence, but all the evidence had been
against him. Jim Harrison had sworn that he had seen Grey coming from
an alley, back of the Van Pelt building, ten minutes before the fire.
In his loneliness and despair he longed for his wife. "Oh, if she could
come for only a moment tonight, I could sleep a peaceful sleep. My poor
little Veleriel she has little left for her support. Tonight my first night,
and ,I have five years of them. God, be merciful to her." H V,
Six months had passed when Grey was called to the warden's office.
I-le hastily read the telegram and, hardly noticing the warden's congratula-
tions, he said, half to himself, half to the warden, "The father of a son and
serving time. Poor boy! Poor dear little girl!" A
Three days later the warden sent for him again. "Grey, your wife is
very ill and has asked to see you. Tomorrow morning Elkins will take you
to Berkeley. I have given the barber orders to shave you, but not to shave
Grey felt the warden grip his hand in a man-to-man shake, and with a
glance into his eyes Grey knew that the warden understood.
The next evening Grey was with his wife. In the two days they remained
in Berkeley Grey noticed how much his presence cheered her. With deep
regret he finally left her. i N
As he boarded the train a desire to break away from his guard possessed
him. But he remembered Velerie and faced the serving of the remainder
of his term. Grey and his guard sat in the smoker behind two elderly
gentlemen who were reading the morning papers, '
Presently the stout man said to the thin man, "Too bad that the new
Physicians' Building was burned so soon. Hardly finished. There surely
was some culprit, bah! some demon, behind that work."
"Yes, I am of the sarne opinion," returned the thin man.
"Bently said there are some side issues, too. I think Cof course this
must be confidentialj I am of the opinion that the detectives are hot on the
trail, but are saying nothing."
"Yes, yes!" said the thin man as he glanced up from the war news.
At a small station three men boarded the train. One of them sat four
seats in front of Grey and his guard. The other men sat together across
the aisle from Grey. Grey was reading a newspaper when he noticed one
of the men go to the front of the car for a drink. A few moments later
confusion near the drinking tank caused him to look up. The man who
had been sitting alone was standing. Grey heard him say, "l beg your
pardon," to the man who had gone for the drink.
"We ain't grantin' parclons to sich people as is the like of you," said
As the detective brought his protesting prisoner down the aisle Grey
stared into the face-of his own double! The man was on the point of
confessing his own guilt when his eyes met' Grey's. -
"That man did it," he exclaimed as he pointed at the guarded man.
"See, you've made a mistake!"
The guard grinned and' showed his badge.
"What, for?" questioned the guilty one. .
"Arson, Circumstantial evidence," was the guard's curt reply. Y
Four days later Grey again embraced his wife. "Velerie, dear, l'm
free! l'm freel And the papers, read them," he cried.
She read every word in his "papers" and then glanced at the big head-
line in the newspaper, "Innocent Man Freed."
There was a moments silence as his arms held her. Then as she fingered
the lapel of his coat her black lashes lifted and she said, "l've named the
baby Vernon." ,

' YELL LEADERS
The student body has yelled, and yelled itself to victory many times,
under the able leadership of Mel Rider, Pat Wells, and Angelo D'Amico, three
of the best yell leaders who ever yelled in Stockton High. They have con-
tributed several new yells to the students' category and have, by way of adding
a little excitement and pep, accompanied these new yells and many of the old
ones, by clever and original stunts.
Although S. H. S. has boasted good yell leaders in years gone by, and
will Fboast good ones in years to come, the class of 'IS doubts if there ever
has or ever will be any, like those famous three that led old S. H. S. to many
victories during the year l9l 7-18.
