EM MA ALFORD
Did you ever happen to be lucky enough to be invited
to a candy pull when limnta was present? XVcll, you
, had better "pull all the strings" and bring about that
enjoyment. for that is where "'l'oots'y is in her prime.
She cloesn't know whether to go to the College of the
Pacific when it comes, or to he truly a house-keeper.
Iirrnii personal experience, we advise the latter, as she
is a great little cook.
Good old 'il'at"! Did you ever see her when she did
not have 11 collection of clever remarks to pass around
to the crowd? Shc's heen in three tennis tournaments
and in the well-rcineinbered girls' crew ol' four years ago,

whom we hate to break connections, hut we will have to
say "good-hy" with a smile!-hecause she is "l'at".
LXXVRENCE ASH LEY
.Xcrnss is Lawrence Ashley, who is naturally dubbed
"l'Juke." lle was an active man on the S. T-l. S. track
team this year. running the 4-lil, high hurdles and relay.
"Duke" can also sing, as we remember him in the Clee
Club in 1920, and when he says "Absolutely" in his musi-
cal voice. "hc simply knocks the girls dead" as the other
fellows express it, "Duke" is planning to enter U. C.
after leaving S. ll. S.
"Cupid" never says thc same thing twice. That might
possibly get him into trouble some day, but we sincerely
hope not. I-Ie is always "hangin' round" and is willing
to help out wherever he can. Neil doesn't know what
he wants to be, but we all know he helped the seniors
win the cross country rung so he'll doubtless win a place
in the race of life.
That cheerful, smiling, blue-eyed girl is none other than
Pearl Baker. Instead of working on committees, she has
been making others happy by her sweet winning way
during her high school days. She declares she is going
to waste time until she is thirty. then find a rich bachelor
and settle down. Oh Gee! ther expressionj she c1oesn't.

Art! Art! And more Art! Agnes just radiates art.
Doesift she look just as a feminine artist should? Ever
since "Bobby" came into prominence by drawing the
best cut for the 1920 annual in her sophomore year, she
has been bringing forth-with her pencil. pen and brush-
posters, cuts, and various objects of artistic beauty. For
instance, she is responsible for a number of the hand-
somest cuts in this book, and she's going tn draw pictures
for magazines later!
"My lands! I have been too busy to serve on commit-
tees", so says Marie lloren, one of our determined and
ambitious classmates. Marie is preparing to go to San
Jose Tcacliers' College to learn to be a kindergarten
teacher. She finds time for other things besides study.
however. for she loves to ride horseback and eat good
food. XVe are sure that Marie will do well in her teachk
ing. for she is patient and kind.
"Paulo" is one of the most genuine, perscvcring, and
earnest of all our athletes, but he doesnt confine all his
time to football, crew, and track. Ile certainly has a
keen sense of humor. And his ambition is to be a doctor.
The way he used to "treat 'em rough" in football kind
of makes one hesitate to call for his future professional

show us how nice he will look in a uniform when he
enters Annapolis to train as a naval officer. He was,
also, a member of the S. II. S. state championship swim-
ming team and of the second football team this year.
"l'oidie" gets a big "kick" out of saying, "Oh! Yeh!"
just as if he did not understang a thing you are talking
about. You have to put the spotlight on "Poidie',, too,
when it comes to dancing, because he can surely live up
to his reputation as the "Dancing Kid"!

ltcssit-'s name fits her perfectly-she is so very quiet and

lf you want a true blue pal. take "Bobby," She arrived
here two years ago full of pep, and is still in the same
" condition. Remember, the perfect boy in "Pucker Up
and VS'histlc" at the September ireshmau reception, the
"tallest of ladies" the year before, and the "niggah" in
the last one? 'Twas "Bohhy"! This year, when sho
hasn't been helping on the student control, or. the
G. X 'l'. work. she's been talking either to G. D. or
"ltobhye" and "Margie',.
.ESTH ER CARIGIET
"S" is that sparkling-eyed little girl with the smile that
won't rub off. Angelina says she's "easy to get along
with, amiable, and nice," and she certainly gives that
impression to all who gaze upon that joyous countenance.
Of course this happy disposition must give vent to music,
and we found "Carr0t's" blithesomcness displayed in
both "1"inaf0re" and "The Pirates of Penzance."

lilcta Carlin is never seen without her tall partner, Kath-
ryn Bliley. liven when she tinishes high school, she is
V going to stay with "Kat", for they will attend teachers'
college together. This attractive little "miss" is very

"My ambition is to dance my way into the heart of a

ousness. and she really means it. She certainly started
well when she danced the hornpipe in Pinafore with
"lEd." and the "Associated Girls" have enjoyed her varied
eliaraeterizations. "lElondy" is just a charming tempera-
niental. sentimental. excitahle. good sport, always ready
to laugh and never melancholy.

Elmer is very fond oi arguing and loves to give his
opinions, which, by the way. usually show good judg-
ment and are considered quitc valuable. Elmer hails
from llanteca, and we know that he will use some oi his
good judgment toward thc welfare of his native town.
Elmer is a good sport and is liked by all his classmritfs.
CLARENCE CLEM IZNSON
Oh, what a pal is "Clem"! Yes, and some :ambition
he has, too! He wants to tour the world with-, though
he docsn't care to work, one of the necessities ill the
preparation for such a feat. llut he's far from lazy! To
prove this, just consider that he turned out for crew and
football and was successful in both.
STELLA CR.-XXNVFO RD
Our Stella is well known for her sunny, smiling face and
her quiet. unassuming capability, She did very good
work for the Guard and Tackle weekly the last year she
was here. Since she graduated in February. she has
been working in the olitice oi thc Cannery. Stella was
always noted for being one of the hcst in her class as far
as scholarship is concerned. As for friends-tliey are all
who know her.
"Hello, Shorty!" XYhy, yes, that is Emile speaking with
her infections giggle-that giggle which made 'ilfinatoreu
practices a joy to a good many "sisters, cousins, and
aunts." She "just loves" boating, horseback riding.
dancing. skating, and expects to be a housewife! Says
she has him all picked out, too! llut K'Slats" is just as
impulsive. merry. cart-irce. and enthusiastic over every-
thing as any girl who ever lived.
Gilbert Curtis, the intellectual looking senior, has no
nickname: so we will bestow upon him the nom-de-plume
of "1nt'elligence". "Intelligence" entered Stockton High
School from San Leandro two years ago and proceeded
to brighten S. ll. S. with his unlimited supply of knowl-
edge. Like all great men he has great ambitions, but
then. contrary to all rules of thc gaine, he hasu't quite
decided what they are.
Ora. although very dignified, is cheerful and friendly
when you know her. The poor girl has been and is still
searching for her ambition, She looks as if she would
make a good stenographer or-a good house-keeper. If
you are around Ora very long, you are sure to hear her
say, "tJh. don't you think so?", or "Do I?"
After hearing VViIma Davey's ambition and favorite ex-
pression, one immediately decides that she is anythin
but sedate. She wants to travel, to go to movies, and
to dance. llesides 'KXVill" loves to say, "Oh, Gwanlu
She is always a good old pal. Her future is a dark
secret, for when asked as to what she intended to do,
she said, "1'll never tell."
Tennis! tennis! tennis! It seems as if that is all
"Slick" thinks of from what he says and docs. But 'tis
not so. He believes in getting his lessons, because he's
enrolled in the Honor Scholarship Society, and we all
know he likes to dance. But he really does want to be
a tennis "shark"g so-best of luck, Percy!
VVriting up Gardiner is like opening' a Christmas stock-
ing-lhere are so many unexpected things within, which
are not seen on the surface. First comes that "some-
thing" which makes him a good sport and "pal", Last
year "Dually" "shipped out" exchanges, this year he
debated, and next year he'll probably go to U. C.
Have you noticed a quiet and dignified student treading
the halls of S, ll. S.? You have? NVQ-ll. did you know
that that personage and Kenneth Durand were one and
the same? Did you know that Kenneth Durand in-
scribed his name in the hall of fame when he succeeded
in obtaining a "1" from Miss Diment in U. S. History?
"Kcnnie" is also a science 4'shark" and will doubtless
some day attach "prof" to his cognomen.
RLOTTE ECKSTROM .
"Eel-tie" expects to "make Art my life work,', and wc
know she means it. every word! She thinks "Art" will
force her to attend an "Art" school if "Art" will allow
her. Oh Heck! To enumerate the things "Eckie" has
done for and in Stockton High School would positively
take volumes: so we will only mention the Student
Control, Executive Committee, freshman reception, fresh-
man viceeprcsidency, vice-presidency of the Associated
Girls 119215, junior and senior representative. "Eel-:ie's"
chief characteristic is slowness! Yeh, slow as a snail.
ROY FARNSXNO RTH
Roy Farnsworth has made himself known for his record
as an athlete and his talent as a musician. lt was he
last year who won the Hrst place in the high jump. Roy
has ably helped in many school functions with his trusty
violin. Despite the fact that he is quiet by nature, he
is quite sociable. Besides he is a good student.

"Oh, this is so suddenlv. you arc liable to hear "Muz-
zie" explode. and the facial expressions that accompany
the explosion are enough to make even Elmorene giggle.
"Muzzie" was in the famous "Pirates", the Glee Club,
and the French Club, and she is a great little canary
bird. Talk about neat, too-she is right there, and is
almost too sweet-tempered to be true!
"I can't say that anybody appreciates my wit," Abe
declared. lle always seems happy to do anythin for
anybody at any time. After taking a course in megicinc
at U. C., Abe will be able to use more of his power to
help people so ainiably. NVhilc he has been at 5. H. S.,
he has made himself known by his bright mind, having
belonged to the llonor Scholarship Society, been presi-
dent of the Latin Club, vice-president of the French

senior play. '
"Snooky" likes to keep house and cook, but she tells us

Although Edith has not been with us long, she has
entered into everything with thc spirit a senior should
show. "Edie" is very studious, and it is said she can
write very interesting and entertaining letters. She often
answers her friends with "I'll say so" when they ask
l1er questions. In a few years Edith will be saying, "Add
' two and two," or "Locate Copenhagen on the map," for
her ambition is to leach school.
"Dot" is fond of dancing and-well, therc's no need to
tell the name of the most famous athlete in the school.
She is a person whom many people can not help liking,
and in her four years here. she has won a host of friends.

"Gee, there's nothing serious that I want to do,"
"Shorty" gleefully declared when asked to be perfectly
frank and tell honestly in what she liked to indulge.
And that is "Shorty" to a T. In fact, the only thing
serious she ever does is sleep, and then, one may safely
wager a salted peanut that she dreams crazy dreams!

Say, who is that good-looking girl over there with the
pretty blonde bob? XVhy, that's Ruth, the "little boy"

good att dancing. too. Did you see her on May Day?
She wants to go to U. C. next year, and when she
finishes there, she expects to loaf. 'l'hat's pretty good

"Dot"-that's she-quite small but active. She's been
on oceans of committees, was vice-president of thc sopho-
more class, junior representative, and student body vice-
president. She likes to eat. NVonder if dainty food

Guess "Les" is to be principally remembered on account
of his pink cheeks and happy disposition. Ile is a very
good speaker, and, as he says he really enjoys voicing
his own ideas in public, we are all expecting to hear a
great deal of "Pest" hereafter. He ran for student body
president last year. did a heap o'swimming. and debated
some. too. His favorite pastimes are reading, swimming,

out all the following in one breath: "She's dear, lovable,
sweet, congenial, smart. and an all around good sport."
And Ruthie is absolutely set in her opinion that "Mig's"
favorite expression is: "Uh, Ruth, wait. Now. wait a

cation at Stanford L'niversity beginning next year.

short time. llesides being so braiuy, Ruth is of such a
good, carefree, and happy-go-lucky nature that one feels
as though a breeze of spring is softly blowing whenever
she is around.

One year ago Helen came to us from Santa Cruz. Since
that time she has proved herself to be an addition to the
class and an antidote for gloom. "Colly VVobbles', is
right there when any one wants some help, whether "any
one" refers to Miss Bl. U. l-lowell, some of "thc gang",
or a poor nusophistieated fl't'SlllC. At the I'inafore party
hardly any one would believe "Shorty" was a .seniorg
she looked so young. And that's the way she always
appears-freshly youthful. full of a youngstens fun, and
always ready for anything.
It seems as if there are not more than one or two people
who really understand "Mac," She is so big-hearted and
helpful that she is always head over heels in work that
somebody else has piled upon her. She ought to make a
good librarian. for even the kiddies won't be afraid of the
'ikliss McArdle" who will appear over the top of the
desk. The G. X T. is going to miss good old "Mac"
next year, as she has been an exceptionally good worker
on the staff.
Now Alice is a mixture of angelicalness aud4er-naug'hti-
ness, because the poor dear divides her time between
seeing that her hair doesn't' part in the middle and in
hunting up a little trouble. Only two years has she
been with us, entering our beloved halls from Vallejo,
but nearly every one knows Alice on account of her
brightuess, tennis ambitions, blondness, and the mys-
terious ring she wears!
"Al" says, " 'Maggie's' favorite saying is 'Give me an
int'ro.' ", 'but we all know "Al", Agnes says, "Maggie's
chief characteristic is sisterly love"l Annie hoo, he is
going to he a civil engineer, and, as he has been a mem-
ber of the Honor Scholarship Society, a famous experi-
menter in chemistry, and this year's renowned short term
joke editor, he ought to make good as a "boss engineer".
Luck be with you, light-hearted "1Iaggie."
Fred Maneely is one ot' our modest senior boys who
always knows a lot more than he pretends to know. He
has not been with us for a very long time, but he is well
liked by all his associates. Fred is certain to have a
successful career, for along with his intelligence he has
a serious and business-like nature.
Dancing, eating, talking, gossiping-somewhere in a
group doing the above, you'll always hnd "El", con-
tinually laughing, sweet and cheerful, so cheerful, in fact,
that she just seems to radiate happiness. "T0oty" will
attend U. C. next year, and if she is as good on coin-
mittees there as she has been here, she will be received
with open arms. 'fl'inafore", crew. freshman reception

She has served well on a number of committees. Besides
her welfare work, "Vi" has had time enough to put on
her studies, as her name graced the Honor Scholarship
Ruth takes things terribly seriously, but she's always

true. Music and talking are her favorite pastimes, and
everybody remembers her in "l'iuat'ore", "The Pirates of

ball and belonged to the almost-forgotten girls' crew,
four long years behind us. '

"How cl' ya like walkin', '1linnie'?" Uh, huh! That's
what he got for speeding. But we wonder if his thirty-
day walk cured his mania for speed. Vile shake our heads
in the negative. But "lN'finnie' is a good student even if
he does like a good time. A grade of 2 or above in

Behold our silvery tongued oratorl For the past year he

a shy and quiet looking boy, his friends know that he is
far from this description, for he is quite entertaining and
just loves to go to dances.
"Bob" is musically inclined! Not much need to say that.

but says l1is ambition is to be a good musician.
Looking for "l'enny"? NVell, if you don't find him at
the tennis courts, look in Mr. IlilT's office or in the
library, for, when he is not wielding a wicked racket, he
is working on debates or orations. He was second only
to Percy Dolan in the tennis tournaments, won the de-
bates on the industrial question, and was a good and eth-
eient secretary of the XVranglers' Club. In fact, anything
that George does is done well. "A good fellow! Proud
to know him," you'll say.
Ardroe is very fortunate in possessing a combination of
character and eharmg and. for this reason, we predict all
sorts of good things for her. Among ineidentals. she's

"Ardie's" future, well, we bet she has her hope chest
started ..... that's all we know.
"Jumbo" is the most noted for being a very prominent
Camp Fire Girl, and as she is a good sport, and always
smiling, she must be a great asset to her group. She

ing trouble and teasing people, but she is very business-
like when she is in class.

istrative Committee ot the lfonor Scholarship Society, and
of the Research Committee of the Science Club, and plays
baseball. Although he is working to become a structural
engineer, he is getting his hand in now by engineering his
"Ellie's" hair! It's just simply too marvelous to be
real, and yet it is-just as real as "Ellie', herself. She
has 'a wonderful brain, ton, as she is completing high
school in three years, and of course belongs to the llonor

is continually raving, and she is happy as a lark when-
ever she can sing and dance to her heart's content.

just what she will do after tinishing school, but we are
sure she will do with distinction whatever she attempts.

Carlton Wlileox is known by his friends as "Sleepy", but
when one thinks of the things Carlton is interested in, he
must inlxnctliately decide that the nickname does not fit.
Carlton has been a member ot' the school band, a member

good student. Many say that Carlton is also very atten-

RUTH CO VV E L L
A girl with a lovely personality is Ruth. Although she
was rather quiet and retiring, she had just loads of
friends. llc-sides having these characteristics, Ruth was
kind, lovable. and keen. Her class work proved this last
statement, for she did excellent work all through her time
at school, She was one ot the members ol our hrst mid-

S. H. CHUN
S. H. Chun was a brilliant Corean student who gradu-
ated in mid year. He is at present, according to his

and is "white" in all but skin.
"jo" made her class proud of her when she represented
it with her fine speech at the commencement exercises

at S. H. S. She became well known as a public speaker
of talent. licsides Ruth had many other accomplish-
ments, for she could sing. dance, act, and shine in many
forms of sport.
VVC all think of "Io" as a quiet and ambitious girl and
are not wrong in our opinion. She has been one of the
senior members of the Scholarship Society since it was
organized. Besides "Io" has been a member of the Glee
Club and a worker for the G. and T. She intends to go
to teachers' college next year, and then later she wants to
write a book. Good luck to you, dear Josephine.
You who think she is a quiet. docile little lady don't
know the real Jessie. She is quiet, yes, but just attend a
barn dance at which she is present, and you will find that
she knows how to enjoy herself as much as anyone. Jes-

CSigned5 CLASS OF '22,
By Francis Smith.
MNIREGIO was the only name
which would classify Professor
Edouardo Smithio's new mode
of transportation. It was no motor,
sea craft, aeroplane, or any other
known means of conveyance. It was
just plain Omniregio. lVhat a wonder
it was! The bowels of the earth, the
very elements themselves, to a begin-
ner, appeared to have been conquered
by it 3 hence its name Omniregio, which
may be Latin for "any old place."
The Omniregio was in the same
class as "Fathomless," Ed's residence
and laboratory. Such daring people as
Detective Anne Ashley and Pound-
man Frances Smith had approached
that laboratory with every precaution
and in the dead of night to learn its
contents, but all had failed. In fact,
one foolhardy reporter, Albert Mur-
ray, had been deposited on the top of
Florence VVilliams' private hangar sev-
eral miles distant, and his dignity is
still shouting for smelling salts.
VVell, I have just completed a big
trip in Qmniregio, the marvels of
which I will now relate. Some six
months ago, june 20, 1946, to be exact,
Edouardo ethergrammed 1TlC that I
might find something to my interest if
I decided to blow around. I hopped
into my Fisher runabout and blew,
finding no excitement outside of the
fact that Roberta Bush, now a cranky
traffic cop, pulled me down when I
tried to speed over Lodi.
I arrived O. K., and old "Edu and
Henderson McGee, his assistant, were
delighted to see me. After the greet-
ings were over, Ed pressed a button,
and Omniregio stood before us. It ap-
peared to be nothing more than an or-
dinary air-Pullman. Ed laughed at
my disappointed astonishment, and we
entered the conveyance. VVe first calne
into a lounging room well fitted and
supplied with latest periodicah ,among
them being the Graebe Gazette and the
Uren VVeekly and one of my own
novels with the Gordon W'allace bla-
zoned so conspicuously upon it that it
made me blush.
From this we entered the pleasant
sleeping apartments with their patent,
ultra sanitary beds, the invention of my
old school friend, Gardiner Duff, and
from thence into the engine room to
see its wonderful Kelling dynamos.
At last we reached the rear porch, and
I prepared to alight. But the ground
was several thousand feet below meg
so I desisted. Unknown to me, "Mag-
gie" had moved back the walls of the
room, started the motors, and, by the
time I had reached the engine room,
had us drifting along without power
but nevertheless decidedly up and over
Then we started down at a tre-
mendous rate. I gasped, seized the
rail, and was just ready to jump when
Ed hauled me inside and closed the
door. Vlfe hit the water with scarcely
a splash, went to the bottom, and had
a merry ride, although careless driving
nearly brought about a collision with
Scott Ford and Elmer Carroll who
were out trolling for clams in their
Farnsworth Twelve. An interesting
sight was the acres of kelp garden
owned by Bart Lauffer, the Luther
Burbank of the underseas.
XfVe then came to the surface and
were enjoying a pleasant cruise on the
waters of Lake Tahoe when the sky
was suddenly darkened by a huge flock
"More of those pesky reporters,
Maggie," said Ed. "Fool 'em."
Maggie did. X'Ve dived, not fifty feet
from the shore, and headed for the
bank. There was a slight shock, a
grinding noise, and I wondered.
"XVe're under Lassen," announced
Ed a little while after, "but we travel
slowly this way, and we won't reach
Fathomless for an hour yet, You
see,' he said, "huge augers bore the
earth away, and it is then returned to
its place in the rear. This Omniregio
is a great thing."
Soon we came up in Fathomless
and dismounted. As we did so, a note
came Huttcring through the skylight.
Ed picked it up, read it, looked startled,
and handed it to Maggie, who read:
"You got my plans, Ed, but you
won't get by with your dirty work.
Then Ed hauled us into a bomb
proof shelter as an aerial torpedo
hurtled after the note,
'fMaggie," said Ed, grimly, "prepare

So I hopped into my private plane
and blew home after my revolver.
ln an hour we were ready to go, with
plenty of Carlin ammunition and the
Preston compressed air cannons in line

armies, not object ?" l inquired.

Gazette, which I was holding upside
down. I concentrated on an advertise-

I did not remain in retirement very
long. Ed soon awoke me by the effec-
tive and vigorous expediency of a
Burke anti-slumber machine.
"IXulore news, XfVally", he said. "NVal-
lace Rohrbacher, who you know is
practicing dentistry in South Africa,
has just ethered me some important
information. Boston and Buckman
have high positions in a republic
known as Aesthetic. Florence Larkey
is president: George Pennebaker, sec-

hen 551,000,000 for being too handsome.
"For some unknown reason they are
determined to ruin us. But, boy," he
added, "watch our smoke !"
Soon even my inexperienced ear
detected something wrong with our
motor. It was not running properly:
so it was decided that we had best land
near a small island and put everything
in A1 shape before continuing.
W'e were at this time several hun-
dred miles from India. W'hat was our
delight to find our old friend, "Sonny',

In the living room I picked up a pa-
per in which the advertisements for the
Hubbard and Irlulteen, exclusive mil-
liners of Paris, the Burton and lioberg

johnson-johnson Beauty Parlors of
Palm lleach appeared. It was quite an
interesting coincidence running across

nouncing our conveyance in fine shape,
we started OH peacefully, but the calm
seemed threatening, and it was, Mag-
gie soon came in waving another wire-
"Ella and Vivian Manuel are run-
ning a wireless station there, and this
is what they say: :Boston and Buck-
man have passed you and are approach-
ing from behind with every intention
of destroying you', he read. 'Bewarelf'
Maggie handed the wireless to me
and proceeded to polish our guns and
look to the ammunition.
"Our detectors would probably have
located them anywayn, said Ed, "but
we'll just get ready to give our friends
a warm reception."
Then I jumped as one of the detec-
tors had set up a loud buzzing. The
other Omniregio was approaching from
the rear and had succeeded in sprink-
ling our craft with a shower of tor-
pedoes and bombs. Maggie dived
down under and returned the fire. The
battle raged back and forth, and then,
looking through one of the re-enforced
glass windows, l saw one of our op-
ponents limping off.
It was the case of the strong bird
overtaking the crippled one, that is.
it was until our weak etherizer, which
had given us the trouble before, again
collapsed. XVe landed at Morocco on
the coast of Africa, and our opponents

mountains. Wfhile the two mechanics
were tinkering about, I. strolled
through the bazaars.
"W'ould the gentleman not like a
door knob of hammered Spooner brass
for his pretty draperies?" inquired a
pensive voice. Its owner was none
other than Marjorie Rosen, who was
helping to introduce modern business
methods into Africa as manager of this
store. The sign read: Pool and Pow-

There was the "Gagen School of He-
Vampingu with Bill as chief coach.
Percy Dolan was president, and Gil-
bert Curtis was secretary of the insti-
tution. I noticed the Alford-Baker de-
partment store, the Salmon-Sayers
Drug Store, the Risk, Meyers, and
Oren Cafe, and Gray-Hall I-lotel. The
Hughes-I-lumphreys-Inglis Sales Com-
pany had a full page "ad" in the paper.
just then Maggie dashed up out of
breath with the news that our 'oppon-
ents were rising and fleeing. XVith a
hasty adieu I started on a run for the
craft. Vie pursued them over the
mountains across the great dry Sahara
and then over the blue waters of the
Mediterranean. And then that awful
etherizer went bad again. XN'e landed
on the island of Madagascar, and our
opponents, not seeing us come to earth,
continued their swift flight.
XVe had landed near the sleepy town
of Spearmint, and, while Ed and Nag-
gie worked in the huge grove in which
we had landed, I went out to view the
sleepy scenery. The lirst place I struck
was a gasoline station on the edge of
town where Lawrence .-Xshley was rak-
ing the gravelcd walk and lflollis Mor-
ris was hlling a Fisher Ili-plane. 'llhey
say Al is doing quite well in the air-
plane busincss. I stopped to chat, but
not for long, and then proceeded down
the main street. I stopped at the Cari-
giet and Carlin Ice Cream Parlor for
a lemonade. Eleta made a charming
soda jerker, though I was very sorry
that Esther was not in. I noticed sev-
eral houses with signs of the Cross-
Cutts Realty Company, and NVilma
Davey was president of the First Na-
tional lflank of which Charlotte Eck-
strom was cashier. Dorothy Frazier
was the mayor of the town.
lly this time I was at the end of the
main streetg so I took a Gaia-Galla-
gher trolley to 1ny starting point.
Elmorene Glascock was conductor and
Edith Goulette motorwoman. 'l'hey
were two of the most efficient travel
experts I have seen. Leslie I-Iarper
had a huge linger-nail tile foundry on a
hill not far off. I was told he was ne-
gotiating a merger with the I-Iolden
and Jones corporation who also had a
large establishment. Margaret Laffety
was found to be president and Eva
Lewis vice-president of the amalga-
mated teeth-Filling corporation. It was
rumored about the island that Marga-
ret Liesy, Alice McCaughy, and Ruth
Mathews were on a tour of Europe.
Bernice Mc.-Xrdle was conducting a
party around the Mediterranean.
I reached the grove to lind Ed and
Ilflaggie justly peeved, for I had kept
them waiting for a long time, and the
detectors had located our opponents
returning in search of us. Vile arose
and headed for Italy, with our enemy
the chasers and we the be-chased.
Finally we arrived over Rome, and
then Ed determined to stop and light.
XVe swooped, shot, glided, pierced, and
had a line time in general until a huge
armoured cruiser, manned by Leslie
Vifaggoner and John Steele, suddenly
appeared, and threatening us with their
huge guns, ordered us to land. NVe did,

trate, Madge IX-ilenking, and ordered to

a monopoly on the 'lfiber Shelllish In-

ents rise in the afternoon, and then we
pursued them back to Africa and across
the desert. They eluded us for a time
in the mountains, but wireless mes-
sages from our good friends Kathryn
Miley, llfargaret Wfadge, and others
always brought us back on the trail.
Wfe located Inez Ryant and Alva

was in charge of supplies and other
matters not purely scientihc.
Our pursuit took us back to the
Republic of Aesthetic, and Ed decided
to risk a hght over the place. It is a
matter of history how the crafts fought
until both were forced to land, how
peace was arranged under the influence
of Helen Wfestgate and Pauline IfVhite,
how Carlton VVilcox is financing the
plants for the manufacture of more
Omniregios, and how Edith Yandall
is the efhciency expert in charge.
You see Buckman and Boston and
Ed and Maggie had worked hard on
their inventions, and, when they both
perfected the same thing at the same
time, each thought that the other had
stolen his plans. But then all is peace
now: so why worry over trifles.
"Some lively class," I pondered,
"that 1922 aggregation! No four cor-
ners of the little old earth have terror
for them. And we used to think a few
thousand miles a real trip! Things and
people move, sure enough."
A Chilclis Fantasy
The moon was chasing stars all night
And missed them every one,
But they were swallowed up by day
Or vanquished by the sun.
The clouds were chasing sunbeams
And gamboling on the blue,
And lofty frigates, sailing by,
VVere bright with sunset hue.
I wish I were a skylark, bold:
Then, flying to the moon,
I'd sing to haste the merry chase,
Or trill a happy tune.
And, when the sun arose in state,
I'd hide a little starg
And, mounting on a Hying cloud,
I'd flee away-so far!

Honor Scholarship Society
One of the most notable accomplish-
ments of 1921-22 was the organization
of the Honor Scholarship Society for
the purpose of promoting among the
students of Stockton 1-Iigh School, a
higher standard of scholarship and,
incidentally, greater interest in the
various school activities. This society
has supplanted the old "honor roll" of
pupils receiving all "recommendatory"
grades. There is more distinction at-
tached to belonging to the society than
there was in being on the roll of honor,
as higher attainment is required of
members. For this reason, the new
society has created great interest and a
striving for loftier goals by the stu-
To become a member, the student
must be able to show by his quarter's
record that he has the required eigh-
teen points, and that he is carrying at
least four unit curriculum subjects
which give credits towards graduation.
Five points are given for a grade of
one, three for a grade of two, and a
specified number of points for holding
satisfactorily an important office, tak-
ing part creditably in a play, belonging
to a successful school team, or similar
accomplishments. A student is a mem-
ber of the society only for the quarter
following the one in which he has rc-
ceived the necessary points. The offi-
cers are elected for each quarter, and
no one can be re-elected more than
The first meeting of the society VVEIS
held on December 16, 1921. Miss Mary
1XTcGlothlin, faculty adviser, appointed
Ray Stiles as temporary chairman, and
Evelyn Sanguinetti acted as temporary
secretary. A committee consisting of
Edward Smith, Olive Morris, Marjorie
Gear, Aliene Meyers, David Greenberg,
and Thelma Vifest was appointed to
frame a constitution.
This constitution was adopted as a
whole at the second meeting on Janu-
ary ll, 1922. Raymond Ribal, Kathryn
Harris, Muriel Stroup, Thelma West,
and Alfred Fisher were appointed as a
On january 12, 1922, the nominating
committee made their report, and the
following officers were elected: presi-
dent, Edward Smith, vice-president,
josephine Gaia, secretary-treasurer,
Evelyn Sanguinetti, and sergeant-ab
arms, Tom Roberts.
The next meeting was held on janu-
ary 24, when the social committee, con-
sisting of Muriel Stroup, Kathryn
Harris, Olive Morris, and'George Pen-
nebaker, made known their plans for a
party to be given on February 10. The
society carried out the plans.
On March 15, the nominating com-
mittee reported, and the society elected
the following officers for the third
quarter: president, Edward Smith,
vice-president, Josephine Gaia, secre-
tary-treasurer, Evelyn Sanguinetti,
and sergeant-at-arms, Raymond Ribal.
Alfred Fisher, Muriel Stroup, and

The Executive Committee of the
Student Body Association for 1921-
1922 has shown by its efncient,'busi-
ness-like management of school affairs
and by its broad iinancial support of
the activities of the school that it has
been one of the most successful Execu-
tive Committees in the sehool's history.
Some of the new projects handled by
this faithful and energetic body have
bee11 to enter a 120 pound and a 130
pound basket ball team in the C. 1. F.
league, to buy the much-needed bleach-
ers, and to enter a debating team in the
California lnterscholastic Debating and
Oratorical league. Though the ex-
penditures for the various school
activities have been extremely liberal,
the committee has been able to show a
decidedly large balance on hand at the
close of the school year.
Raymond Stiles, president of the
student body, has been highly success-
ful in every way, and his ability to
revive the old "Stockton High spirit"
will give future presidents something
to perpetuate. The vice-president,
Dorothy Harper, has given the presi-
dent earnest co-operation and support
and has been a willing worker. The
second vice-president, Wfallace Rohr-
bacher, deserves mention for his in-
cessant labors as chairman of the Stu-
dent Control Committee. Edward
Dunne, as secretary, has kept the min-
utes of the meeting accurately and has
been an able member. The auditor,
Arthur Bass, has shown great interest
in his work and has proven himself
The faculty representative, Mr. John

As a part of the student body gov-
ernment plan, which was established in
Stockton l-ligh School by Mr. W'orten,
principal in 1906, was the Student Con-
trol Organization which has been in
operation to date.
ln 1914 the Student Control Com-
mittee consisted of one member from
each class elected by common vote, but
in 1915 this arrangement was changed
so as to divide the work between a
boys' and a girls' student control com-
mittee. Une member of the Boys'
Student Control, the president of the
Associated Students, was elected, and
he appointed four seniors as the other
members. The vice-president of the
Student Body, a girl, chosen by popu-
lar election, selected four senior girls
to serve with her on the Girls' Control
Committee. The president and vice-
president served as chairmen, or
judges, of their individual committees.
ln the latter part of 1920, as the re-
sult of the president's duties being
increased so much that he could not
justly devote his time to the Boys'
Student Control, a new office was cre-
ated, that of second vice-president of
the Student Body. The second vice-
president, a boy with senior standing,
was elected from the Student Body by
popular vote and acted as chairman or
judge of the Boys' Student Control.
This year Stockton High School
added another court to its already
efficient system, that of court of ap-
peals, which is presided over by the
president of the Student Body, three
of the instructors, and two of the stu-
dents of the school. If a student thinks
he did not receive a fair trial, it is his
prerogative to take his case to the court
The Boys' Student Control Commit-
tee was very successfully chosen this
year by VVallace Rohrbacher, chair-
man. lt consisted of the following
members: Tom Roberts, Arthur Bass,
Cordon NVallace, john l-lodgkins, Ray-
mond Stiles. Lawrence Seifert, Edward
Smith, and Earl Zeller.
Dorothy I-larper, vice-president of
the Student Body, showed real ability
in choosing the following members to
serve on her committee: Charlotte
Eckstrom, Angelina lllignacco, Flor-
ence XN'Y1lll2'l1TlS, Roberta Bush, Marga-
ret Hladge, and Grace Salmon.
The purpose of the Student Control
is to allow the students themselves to
maintain order in and around the
school building and to pass sentence
on disorderly students. Wfhen any
misconduct on the part of a student is
detected, he is summoned to the stu-
dent control room during the adviser
period for trial. I-le is informed of the
charge against him and is asked to
plead guilty or innocent. 1-le is allowed
to bring witnesses to testify in his be-
half and is given a square deal in every
way. If he pleads guilty or is found
guilty, the judge imposes a sentence
upon him which he thinks is best suited
to the particular case. There have been
no "cut and dried" sentences this year
as there have been in previous years.
The lesser offenses were given smaller
sentences, while the more serious ones
were dealt withmore severely.
So far this year the boys' chairman
has handled 115 cases and has given'as
the lowest sentence one period sus-
pC11ClCCl sentence, and as the highest ten
periods of detention. The girls' judge
has handled less cases than the boys'.
Her minimum sentence was one period,
and her maximum, fifteen periods of

Associated Girl Students
The organization of "Associated
Girl Students" has, in the past year,
ably carried out its duties and fulfilled
its purpose of creating democratic co-
operation among the girls. Vivian
Manuel, who has shown herself to be
an able and efficient president, offici-
ated at the first meeting of the year on
October 19, 1921. The other officers
have been Helen Gilbert, vice-presi-
dent, and Dorothy Dunne, secretary.
The president appointed the follow-
ing standing committees for the year:
social committee-Charlotte Eckstrom,
Margaret Gealy, Helen Gilbert, Rob-
erta Bush, and Audrey Burroughsg
press committee-Bernice McArdle,
Dorothy Inglis, and Clara Morris 3 com-
mittee on atliletics-Wilma Hubbard,
Grace Atherton, and Ardroe Perry.
Dorothy Harper, vice-president of
the Student Body, asked the co-opera-
tion of the girls in connection with the
"Girls' Student Corporation". Vivian
Manuel also appointed the committees
for the first freshman reception. They

petent committees on Friday, Novem-

goodly number, pronounced it a great
The association originated a novel
Christmas charity idea, which was also
adopted by the boys. An assembly was
called by Vivian Manuel to introduce
the plan. Each adviser section adopted
a family which it provided with a gen-
erous Christmas box filled with food
and clothing. Charlotte Eckstrom and
Morton Levy with the help of Miss
Mclnnes, had charge of this Christmas
charity work. The girls willingly re-
sponded to the call and found much
happiness for themselves in giving
those less fortunate a bit of Christmas
In an assembly on January 18, 1922,
Dr. Goetz of the State Board of Health,
who was introduced to the girls by
Miss Mclnnes, delivered a very inter-
esting and helpful lecture.
At a meeting on March 31, 1922, the
girls decided to have a freshman recep-
tion to welcome the girls entering high
school in February. They also voted
to observe Mothers' Day by giving a
program for the mothers of all the high
school girls. This was a new idea
which had never been carried out be-
fore in the school.
The second freslnnan reception,
though held a little later than usual, on
April 7, served to make the older girls
better acquainted with the new fresh-
men, and all enjoyed a good time.

kindly assisted and directed the "asso-

Of the many organizations in Stock-
ton 1-ligh School, the meetings of The
Cartoonists' Club are probably the
most regular, They are held every
W'ednesday afternoon at four o'clock,
and are presided over by a president,
secretary, treasurer, and instructor.
These offices were filled during the
term 1921-1922 by Richard Thomas,
jack Thomas, Virginia Soto, and Ralph
Gray respectively. At each meeting
the instructor gives a talk upon some
branch of the art of drawing and also
a number of practical lessons in car-
tooning and sketching.
The membership of this club is lim-
ited to twenty-live a year. Those who
have had the privilege of holding mem-
bership in this active group this year
were: james Foley, Jack Thomas,
Richard Thomas, 'Virginia Soto, Jessie
Crunsky, Edwin Mayall, ldah Smith,
john Burke, Dona Shaffer, VVilliam
XVhitmore, liernard Collins, Carlos
Bravo, Miriam Platek, Kenneth Cul-
ver, Tom Sloan, Merlin l-lannan, Wil-
liam lN'lcArdle, and Ralph Nackle.
There were also a number of honorary
members: These are: Ralph O. Yard-
ley fthe Record artistj, Misses Mont-
gomery, Pahl, and 'I-lermann Qteachers

In past years many attempts have
been made to organize a Latin club in
Stockton l'-ligh School. But it was not
until Miss Mary C. Coman took charge
of the Latin work in the fall of 1920,
that a successful one was realized.
This club consisted of two divisions,
one for the freshmen and the other for
upper classmen, both of which held
many enjoyable and prolitable meet-
ings, but there was not the feeling that
both divisions belonged to the same
So, when they reorganized at the
beginning of the next school year,
it was decided that there should be
no divisions in the club, and that
the combined clubs would call them-
selves the "Forum Latinumfl At an
early meeting of the new combined
club, lllargaret Gealey was chosen for
the presidentg Helen Vvestgate, vice-
president: and Kathleen Mitcliell, sec-
retary. The purpose of the Forum
Latinuin has been to promote an inter-
est in classical subjects and to furnish
a means of social acquaintance among
the members of the Latin classes and
all interested in Latin.
l'robably the most noteworthy act of
the "Forum Latinum" has been to pre-
sent before the school the Latin play,
'Tlxitus ii'lClVCtO1'll.11l1,,, or "The Depar-
ture of the Helvetiansf' The leading
parts in the play were taken by Robert
Carr, who sustained with great dignity
the part of the commander, Caesar,
Kenneth Marvin, as Labienusg and
Kenneth Culver, as the old man of the
Helvetians. The costuming, which
well represented the dress of Caesar's
day, was a main feature of the play.
A variety of interesting and educa-
tional 1Jl'Og1'3.l'llS have been furnished
throughout the year by the program
committee. Two sets of lantern slides,
which had been secured from Stanford
University, were shown at one of the
meetings. A lecture on "The Lite of
Caesar and CZLCSZUJS Campaigns In
Gaul" accompanied these pictures. Re-
citals and songs given by the members
ofthe club in Latin, and charades based
on Latin words also constituted the
miscellaneous parts of the program.
A Latin club party was held in April,
and every one declared it a grand suc-
cess. The next to the last meeting of
the year was given over to the man-
agement of the 9A Latin classes. They
surprised the club by conducting a very
enjoyable party. A program which
consisted of orations given by the
upper-classmen marked the close of the
last meeting of the 1921-22 "Forum
Latinuinf' At this meeting it was
unanimously decided that the club
should organize again in September.
The French Club of Stockton High
School was organized last year, 1920-
192l, by Miss Daisy Newby, head of
the Modern Language Department.
The purpose of the club is to awaken
interest in French and to improve the
members' ability in that language. It
is an active organization, meetings of
which are held at the homes of the dif-
This club, piloted by Miss Newby,
has been carried on this year with
much more vigor than in its first year.
The meetings have been presided over
by the following officers: Dorothy
Inglis, presidentg Abe Girsh, vice-
presidentg and Florence Williaiiis, sec-
retary. Games in French have been
played. Through the National Bureau
of French-American Educational Cor-
respondence, some of the members
have corresponded with French stu-
dents in France.
The 12A members of the club pro-
duced "La Surprise d'Sidore", a short
play. The cast for this play Were:
Marjorie Gear, Angelina Mignacco,
Madge Menking, Leah Blanchard, and
Dorothy Inglis. Mildred Norcross was
the property "man", and Florence Wil-
liams had charge of the costumes.
Miss Newby plans to make a trip to
France next July, returning in Septem-
ber, and a number of the French Club
members are thinking seriously of ac-
companying her on this journey.
A large number of students of Stock-
ton High School enjoy the privileges
and pleasures of the French Club.
They are: Dorothy Inglis, Abe Girsh,
Florence Williaiiis, Madge Menking,
Caroline Moore, Jacqueline Johnson,
Susan Catts, Grace Atherton, Helen
Gilbert, Dorothy Dunne, Helen Moran,
Ysabelle Nelson, Bernice Stowell, Mar-
jorie Gear, Millard Udall, George Pen-
nebaker, Marguerithe Dietrich, Grace

ig MSS Socie
The Big "S" Society of Stockton
High School was organized ten years
ago by Stanley Arndt and Carl Ort-
man for the purpose of promoting a
high standard of athletics and keeping
the athletic reputation of the school
Although the society has not been
taking any visible part in the school

scored two points in a C. I. F. sectional
meet and received a Big "S" for such
Big "S" vaudevilles were presented
in '14, '15, and '16, the proceeds going
to the support of school activities. The
1916 vaudeville was the last, because
the dollar registration fee proved more
activities, they have upheld these
original aims so successfully that the
reputation of Stockton High is well
established, not only for the strength
of its teams but also for its true sports-
manship. This year's state basket ball
championship is evidence of this.
Membership is secured in the society
when a student has either participated
in a league game on a team which has
effective in meeting expenses. Two
dances were given in 1917 and 1918.
At a meeting held early last year
Eugene Patton was elected president
of the society, Uldric I-lussey, vice-
presidentg Carl Stiles, secretaryg and
Lawrence Seifert, treasurer. This year
the society gave a dance in the gym-
nasium that was declared by all highly

Circle S Society
The Circle "S" Society was organ-
ized in 1917 under the supervision of
Coach Amos Elliot, the physical direc-
tor at that time. The motive which
prompted the organization of this
society was to distinguish members of
a successful minor sport team or mem-
bers of a second team of a major sport.
The society this year included about
iifty members. "Ye Scribe" Smith was
president, "Sleepy" liennett, vice-
presidentg "Ecards" Beardslee. secre-
taryg and "Charlie" Martin, sergeant-
Although thc membership of the Cir-
cle "S" Society does not include the
cream of the athletic ability that the
school possesses, it is the members of
this group that make it possible for
Stockton High School to turn out state
P ost Graduates
Forty-four graduates of S. H. S.
Walked back over their bronze plate
this year and made possible the estab-
lishment of a separate postgraduate
class in S. H. S. Some of these former
students returned to take up commer-
cial ivorkg while others have taken
studies which will strengthen their
credits for college.
The class was given a special adviser
section under the supervision of Miss
Jessie L. Rau. An election of officers
was held early in the year and Law-
rence Campodonico was elected presi-
dentg Mildred Norcross, vice-presi-
dent, and Edward VVagner, secretary
and treasurer. Lively business meet-
ings have been held many times during
the year in the post graduate advisory
The lirst duty assigned to the P. Gfs
was cadet teaching. The advanced stu-
dents, because of their acquaintance
with the subjects they have taken, have
been able to substitute for the regular
teachers during short absences. Their
Work in this line was found to be very
satisfactory. At Christmas time two
families were supplied with Christmas
trees and food by the P. G. class.
The interclass swimming meet was
won by the P. Gfs. Philip Baxter,
Adolph Peirano, Lawrence Campo-
donico, Reginald Goldwater, and Fran-
cis Hardeman were the representatives.
Edward Wlagner and Eldena Mulroy
were in Pinafore, the second annual
comic opera given by S. H. S. The
dramatic activities in the Dramatic
Viforkshop have been greatly assisted
and well inaugurated by six post grad-
uates: .-Xdella Grissel, Philip Baxter,
Mildred Norcross, Frances Henry,
Helen Hammer, and Elizabeth Edin-
Memories of their wonderful senior
picnic prompted the P. G.'s to indulge

of S. H. S. The picnickers motored to

Not everybody is willing to be a
background, but no entertainment
can be entirely successful that does not
have a good musical background. The
Stockton High School Orchestra of
1921-1922 was the background that
helped to make all the school plays and
entertainments such a success. The
orchestra willingly responded to the
many calls, "Furnish music for this
production", that accompanied the nu-

Boys Glee Club
In an attempt to rival the fair warb-
lers, a group of S. H. S. boys organized
a glee club early in April. They did
not start with such high ambitions as
their feminine rivals, but events proved
that they will not have to look far for
Caruso's successor, as some totally u11-
expected talent has been unearthed the
like of which has never been heard be-
fore and probably will never be again.
Like the girls, the boys also pre-
sented a program for the school during
Music VVeek. They entertained the
audience during the intervals of the
Stockton-Newman debate with several
selections. Wfhen the annual went to
press, plans were being made to pre-
sent a program at one of the local
College and humorous songs taken
from "Ruff-Stuff", a book of humorous
selections, composed an enjoyable part
of their repertoire. Gther songs writ-
ten especially for 1'1lE11,S voices were
sung, among them the "Soldiers' Cho-
rus" from Faust, Stephen Foster's
southern darkey melodies, the famous
"I Been VVurkin' On the Railroad",
and other well-known melodies that
contain real harmony.
Next year Mr. Frazee intends to
organize the club earlier so as to obtain
better results. Both the glee clubs had
representatives in "I-'inaiore,'.

Girls G ee Club
If Stockton l-ligh School does not
turn out some Mary Gardens or Alma
Glucks in the ever-approaching future,
the fates will have played Stockton the
well known double-cross. This will all
be a result of the training experienced
in the Girls' Glcc Club.
Owing to preparations for the comic
opera i'Pinafore", the club did little
work in the fall, but after that the club
got to work and established a credit-
able reputation. The club has given
numerous programs for various attairs,
among them one for the Rotary Club
and as part of a concert of the Stock-
ton Musical Club at the Philomathean
clubhouse. The girls of the club par-
ticipated in the Music Wfeek exercises
and gave a program in the school audi-
torium. They also took part in the
commencement exercises as has been
the custom of the past three years.
The future xvarblers and would-be
singers have sung nothing but the well
known best. Their greatest achieve-
ment was the rendering of the first two
parts of the "Peer Gynt Suite" by
Grieg. They have also worked with a
number of Indian songs by Cadman.
The club is under the direction of
Holland Frazee, head of the music de-
partment, and the accompanists were
Ruth Schimmelpfenig and Grace Barsi.
The members of the club are: Grace
Atherton, Helen Carlin, Esther Cari-
giet, Ellen Carey, Letitia Catts, Elena
Celayeta. Enolia Crane, Emile Cross.

The Vocational Department is a very
active division of the school and does
much practical work of beneht' both to
the members of the department and to
the schools of the city as a whole. Last
year the diderent vocational classes
saved the schools of Stockton about
The print shop alone has saved
almost 34,000 by printing tickets and
cards and doing other school work.
This shop is too busy to do any work
his trade: the other half, in regular
school, where he studies English, sci-
ence, mathematics, drawing, and citi-
zenship. At the end of the course,
when the student has passed success-
fully, a diploma is given him by the
school board and a certilicate granted
by the state of California. He then be-
comes entitled to till a position in a fac-
tory and may be called a mechanic, a
cabinet-maker, an auto repair man, or
a printer. In about two years, several
for organizations outside the school.
The wood shop saved over 33,000 last
year by making teachers' desks and do-
ing other work desired by the Board
of Education. The machine and auto
shops furnished excellent genuine ex-
perience for students desiring to learn
such work under expert teachers.
A course in this department may be
taken for two, three, or four years.
Half the student's day is spent learning
new shops are to be built, in which a
more complete vocational course may
be offered. The new shops will be:
pattern making, electrical work, vul-
canizing, house wiring, and welding.
There are six vocational teachers de-
voting all their time to the work and
several others who spend only part of
their time teaching. There are at pres-
ent about one hundred students en-
rolled in this department.
The third annual "Better Speech
Week" in America, although only the
second one observed in Stockton High,
was celebrated with signal effective--
ness from November 7 to November 11.
In the English classes the teachers
used every available means to improve
the spoken language of the students.
Plays and very interesting programs
were given before the various classes.
In Miss M. U. Howell's 12B class, a
book of poems was given to the student
who could read most effectively a sev-
enteenth century lyric, the winner be-
ing Georgia Smith. "The Silver Lin-
ingl' and "Nevertheless" were the two
excellent plays presented by the f'dra-
matic workshop" class in honor of this
national celebration. Cn Thursday,
November 10, an assembly, in charge
of the public speaking class was held
in honor of Better Speech and Armis-
tice Day. V
In Miss Wfilliams' oral expression
class many were the speeches on
Armistice Day which were given to
improve the speaking ability of the
members of that class. The honor of
having his name in the G. and T. was
the prize Miss Osborn gave to the
little "freshie" who made the fewest
mistakes that week in pronunciation,
enunciation, or grammar.
Un the whole, "Better Speech YVeek',
went off with a loud bang! and it was
worthy of the time and attention
Stockton High accorded it.
To give a doubting and almost sus-
picious public an idea of the work done
in the public schools of America in
preparing the younger generation for
the task of conducting the affairs of the
future, was the purpose of the observa-
tion of "Educational Weekl' last De-
cember. The week was celebrated
from December 4 to 10 and was ob-
served in all states.
The teachers of Stockton High
School wrote of the ideals, needs, and
purposes of each department, as much
space as possible being given to each
subject in the "G, and TY' These con-
tributions to "The Guard and Tackle"
were copied by the city papers, and
other articles were furnished for the
larger papers by teachers and students.
Statistics were given to show the great
increase in the number of students in
the school in proportion to the popula-
tion ot the city of Stockton, the mone-
tary value of a high school education,
and other matters not generally real-
ized by the public.
Little boats should keep near shore,
But larger crafts may venture more.
This twisted version of the old coup-
let applies to the growing activities of
the classes in news writing. The mem-
bers of the 1921-1922 classes have done
the lion's share of the writing for The
Guard and Tackle Weekly this year,
have been almost the exclusive assist-
ants to the staff of the annual, and
many have written for the regular city
papers. Other students may write as
well or better, but the editor has fre-
quently had to fall back upon the
trained journalists to put snap and
facts into plain general accounts. For
this reason the class is included under
News writing students are at first
"little crafts" that cruise about the
school for news, but surprisingly soon
they Hnd themselves quoted by the big
city papers and actually writing real
articles for larger publications. Even
those who dislike regular composition
have found real joy in this type. There
is also considerable desire manifested
at the end of each semester for an ad-
vanced course in journalism.
Miss L. E. Osborn, the teacher of
this course, has willingly devoted much
of her time to the assistance of the
"cub reporters" and has thereby helped
make the course more and more popu-
lar. News writing, its enthusiasts de-
clare, is a course no one will regret
Members of the previous news writ-
ing classes of S. H. S. that have taken
up newspaper work in colleges include
I-Iarbert Gall, now on the managerial
staff of the Daily Californian at U. C.,
Joe Dietrich, assistant editor of the
same daily, julia Dupont and Max
Newstat, now writers of feature stories
for the U. C. paper, and Lorraine Ells-
worth, on the Daily Californian Staff.
Ye who love the haunts of Nature,
Love the sunshine of the meadows,
Love the ballads of the people-
Listen to these thrilling legends
To these stories and traditions
Of the Iroquois, the Red Men."
Such was the trend of the Prologue
recited by the Indian Prophet Uack
Thomasj in the "Iroquois Corn Festi-
val", the Spring pageant presented by
the Department of Physical Education
for Girls in the beautiful "west glade"
of the high school campus at dusk Sat-
urday, May 20.
The action was begun by the dashing
red-cloaked Evil Spirit QAlva NVood-
fordj, the ruler of the underworld, who
with his faithful attendants, Burning
XX-'ind and Heat QLottie Troy and 'Ieane
Southerlandj, clothed in Hame and
scarlet colors, cruelly attacked and
withered the happy, dancing playmates,
Corn QRuth 1-Iandsj, Bean tl-Iazel Car-
rowj, and Squash fGeorgia Smithj.
The playful and teasing Bean and
Squash tragically succumbed to death
under the fearful searing and cringing
witherers, VVind and Heat, commanded
by their dauntless, daring devil-master.
The dainty Corn Maiden, who had
escaped, was pursued by the dangerous
demon, who tore her roughly from her
playmates, the sparkling "Dews", glis-
tening in their lovely shades of orchid,
and put her under the ground, where
she remained with the darkest little
devils dancing around her, until the
bright rays of the "Sunshine Maiden",
dressed in yellow and deep orange,
came to rescue' her. The "Sun's Ray"
dance was charmingly danced by Marie
Hands, leading Helen Gravem, Kath-
leen Mitchell, Dorothy Smith, and
Frances Kitt. Under the benign in-
fluence of these happy spirits, Corn
Maiden emerged from the ground and
grew to perfect maturity.
The prayer for good harvest opened
the second scene, with the entrance of
the painted warriors of the tribe of
Iroquois, Ardroe Perry and Marian
Mitchell. Finding a suitable place,
they summoned the women to make
camp. The activities of home life were
interrupted by the Medicine Man
fCeorge Millerj, who bade them
gather for the corn ceremony. Sud-
denly from out of the forest came a
warrior, returning late from his con-
quest in the Land of Sky-blue VVaters,
bringing with him a captive maid,
tVera Lindseyj. The Medicine Man
fGeorge Millerl loosened her fetters.
then bade her welcome to the Festival
of the Iroquois. The oldest woman in
the tribe Cfva Allumbaughj planted
the Hrst row, as she blessed each hand-
ful of corn. The other women QAlice
lXrIcCaughey and Margaret Gealeyj
joined her and planted parallel rows of
the tiny yellow seeds.
Beautiful and artistic baskets and
rugs woven in gorgeous colors in true
Indian style made a most spectacular
setting for the scene. The genuine
peace pipe, smoked by the Medicine
Man, was formerly the property of an
old Indian tribe. Between scenes there
was a splendid chorus of young voices
petitioning the Great Spirit, asking
only for good harvest.
The Indian W'ar Dance, with the
wild step of the Red Men, was pre-
ceded by the Fish Dance in slow,
jerky, monotonous rhythm. To the
Council Lodge came the processional
of the grateful lndians where the Medi-
cine lXlan called a Thanksgiving lnvo-
cation. A Thanksgiving chorus then
rang out through the air. Arrows flew
from all directions, the shooting of
the Red Men in their stealthy, eat-
likc bow-and-arrow dance. after which
sports were carried on, the winners
receiving prizes awarded by the chief.
A linal chorus ended the pageant in
most triumphant 111211111612
Other characters in the pageant who
were very realistically portrayed were
the Indian mother. Bernice XViley:
the Indian children, Alice Potter, Doro-
thy Hedger, and Ruth Satterleeg the
fiirt, Viola Jacinto: her lover, Helen

Circus and Tacky Day
All the "pep,' and originality in the
school was rolled together in a giant
up-to-date riot of fun and noise. The
attractions were all high class, no trash
or sells being permitted. Besides vari-
ous stunts and side show attractions
a vaudeville show was presented in the
"gym" which rivaled the most am-
bitious Orpheum program. Several
musical features were carried out in
conjunction with the vaudeville.
During the afternoon and evening a
"mean nickel dance" was given in the
Hgymu. Prizes were awarded to the
"meanest" dancers and for the most
original costumes. Ray Stiles had
charge of this and surely did "put it
The day's events in their order
were as follows: ln the morning
the students spent their time getting
acquainted with each other, as it was
"Hello Dayl' as well as "Tacky" and
"Sirkus" Day. In the afternoon all
donned their worst and came to school
to prepare for the parade which started
at 2:30 p.m. and was a mammoth
affair composed of over fifteen hundred
students in all sorts of array. At first
the unwarned populace thought that
the brick building- across the street had
broken open, but were soon freed from
their fear when high school "newsies"
circulated copies of the sensational
"Tacky Day" editions of The Guard
and Tackle weekly, announcing in out-
size type the greatest "Tacky Dayn in
the school's history. The parade was
ably managed by Wfallace Rohrbacher,
the marshal of last year's pageant.
The procession wound up at the cam-
pus, and then the big shows began.
The spielers cleared out their throats,
rusty from last year's use, and made the
"rocks and rills" resound with their
cries advertising everything from the
hot-dog and Eskimo pie, sold by the
freshman and sophomore adviser sec-
tions, to the big show, Miss Manske's
adviser production of the "Nuttical
opera, I. O. U."
Nearly all the advisers and organi-
zations took an active part in the
"Sirkus," and much originality was
brought to light. Miss Diment's, Miss
Manske,s, Mr. Caulkins', and Mr.
XVilliamson's adviser sections all had
good stunts and proved to be real
money makers. The Science Club had
a weird and original stunt. The Schol-
arship Society and the Music Depart-
ment also gave noteworthy produc-
At the time this annual went to
press, the amount taken in had not yet
been ascertained, but there is no doubt
that the total will come near the one
thousand dollar mark. The funds de-
rived are to be used for resurfacing the
tennis courts and for several other
athletic needs. Last year's receipts
were used to pay for the bleachers. By
having the "Sir-kus" every year, the
school has a ready method of increas-
ing its finances.
'Gordon Vlfallace deserves much
credit for his successful managing of
the "Sirkus" and the co-operation he
succeeded in securing from the stu-
dents. Others who assisted the man-
ager are: Scott Ford, Katherine Har-
ris, Tom Roberts, Charlotte Eckstrom,
Edward Libhart, Helen Gilbert, Doro-
thy il-larper, Edward Smith. Lawrence
Campodonico, and Tom Sloan. The
success of this year's "Sirkus" will give
the future students of Stockton High
School a goal towards which to aim.
Here's hoping next year's celebration
will be "bigger and better than ever."
"Our Gang" gave a party in the
"Gy1n,' one Saturday night. 'Twas the
Saturday before Hallowe'en, and the
"gang" was a dozen of our honorable
faculty who entertained all the rest.
Every one came Hdolled up" in kid
clothes. And talk about "wicked!,'
XYell, K'Pop" Garrison wouldn't even let
the G. and T. reporter in to get the
facts about the doings. Anyway, the
teachers claim they each had a mar-
velous time. And we'll believe them
on hearing that f'Pop',, Charlie Libhart,
and "Chuck" VVilliamson had a pie-
eating contest, and "Prof', lliff imper-
sonated three Shakespearean charac-
ters in the same play with Dad Ber-
ringer as lean Cassius.
jazzy music and good "peppy pep"
almost exceeded the limit at the Fresh-
man Dance on November 10 in the
"gy1n'. This was the hrst time any
separate class has given a dance with
the exception of the junior-senior
event, and it aroused so much enthusi-
asm that the junior class took the hint
and followed with its dance on Decem-
ber 23. This class wasn't as "stingy"
as the freshmen and invited all the
school to attend. Of course, the dance
was a raving success, and on account
of that good time every one expected
the junior-senior "crawl" to be the
grand success it was.
But the biggest and best party of the
year was just a school party-no
classes or any certain party in charge-
and was attended by over three hun-
dred students. Even the warm weather
did not stop the "jazz hounds."
School parties are a great asset to
the school, and the students surely
would miss them if they should happen
to be stopped.

"Oh, boy, but weren't those eats
good ?" That's what you heard after
the luncheon given by the senior girls
for the February graduates on Febru-
ary 3, in the "Gym".
It was one of those help-yourself
lunchcons. The senior girls provided
the goodies. It was at noon, and, of
course the partakers couldn't help be-
ing starved, Roberta Bush, Emilie
Cross, Bernice Gray, and Vivian Mau-
uel portioned out the edibles so that
no one would be compelled to go home
The hostesses next brought on other
sources of amusement. VVhen every
one had almost decided that it was all
over, some one noticed a very queer
sort of lady walking across the floor,
with her spectacles "just so" on the
end of her pretty red nose,-you know,
rather old-maidish-like, as some coun-
try school teachers used to look when
grandma was a girl. A second look,
and it was decided that it must be
Charlotte Eckstrom. "XVhat iierce
noise is that ?" It was those noisy boys
and girls coming into school. Boys
like Bernice McArdle, Georgia Smith,
and Helen Vlfestgate always cause a
great deal of commotion in a school
anyway. Beula Ford and Florence
VVilliams were so spoiled that it kept
poor teacher busy, and what do you
think of it?-they were in love with
some boys. Jean Shepherd was right
demonstrate their cleverness when the
school had visitors. A visit from Beu-
la's father and mother, Ruth Hulen and
Ailene Meyers, came next. Before
school was over that day, the teacher
had a nervous headache due to the
trouble caused by such students as
"Oh there goes that old bell". That
ended the good time. It was the Hrst
occasion S. H. S. has ever had to enter-
tain her February graduates. Every
one said it was a howling success.
If one can imagine Scott Ford drink-
ing the juice of several cans of pine-
apple and putting what was left in the
punch, Hubert McNoble phoning to a
fish market and asking how "many
shrimps a pound of people" can eat,
and Miss Mosbacher drinking a glass
of punch loaded with salt and pepper
which was intended for Pete Snyder,
who, being a "gentleman", for cour-
tesy's sake had handed it innocently
to the teacher,-an idea only may be
obtained of the fun which the f'Pina-
fore" cast had at their banquet, which
was held in the gymnasium and the
cafeteria from 9 till 12 on February
It was a kids' party, everybody felt
childish, talked childishly, acted child-
ishly, and was dressed childishly. Miss
Mosbacher, Miss Newby, Mr. and Mrs.
Frazee, and Mr. Toms were garmented
in knee trousers. Mr. Iliff, the only
one present who was not dressed kid-
dishly, must have been afraid of show-
ing his long bony structure.
The amusements were keen to the
utmost. Ed Sn1ith's interesting stunt
in which VVillard Clark Qrepresented
by Gordon Wzillacej was tried for re-
ceiving four 1's last quarter, was the
first on the program. The secret finally
brought to light was that the culprit
had been calling on Irene Hon.
A dance came next in which Ed
Vifagner, Hubert McNoble, and Tom
Roberts danced with james Barsi, John
Hodgkins, and lid Jasper. The girls'
ballet which then followed proved most
For the "eats" which came next, the
girls had made the sandwiches and
cakes, while the boys had had to
squeeze about eight dozen lemons
for the punch. "Refreshments" were
served in the cafeteria, and Ed Smith,
Ed VVagner, Ray Stiles, and Miss Mos-
bacher, Mr. Toms, Mr. Frazee, and
Miss Newby disclosed their household
ability when they washed and wiped
the dishes. Ed Wfagner had to wipe
each dish twice before he got them
Iliff Advice Banquet
Eats, more eats, and still some more
eats, until there weren't any more was
the order of events at the big food
festival held by the boys of Mr. lliff's
adviser section in the cafeteria Febru-
ary l3. The fellows showed their spirit
by putting over a real adviser party.
The evening was spent playing games
ranging from checkers to dominoes
CAfricanj and listening to the strange
noises issuing from Carroll Craig's
Wlieii "chow" call was heard, the
fellows fell to and made the plates of
food look like the devastated portions
of France. Every one did his part to-
wards stowing the food away, but no
doubt the crocheted piano goes to Car-
roll Cole who ambled home singing
that signiticant ballad entitled, "I
Know I Got More Than My Share".
Other high men were Roy QI-lowardj
Gardner, Williaiii CVVillardj Giotto-
nini, and "Shoeless" Coffin.
The party lasted from 7:30 to about
10:30, and there was something going
all the time. Some one suggested that
maybe the silverware was going, but,
as the cafeteria reported no loss, some
one made the well known mistake.
Simon Christensen won the tiddledy
winks championship, and Carroll Cole
proved to be a "slickerH at the latest
indoor sport "put and take" which was
played under a table.
The committee in charge of the aHair
consisted of Lowell Garrison, Kenneth
Culver, George Diffenderfer, David
Greenberg, "Bob" Dougherty, and Mel
Bennett. The entire party was a suc-
cess, and, as Ring Lardner would say,
"a good time was had by all".
Public Speaking Banquet
Merriment, feasting, and choice
speech-making featured the annual
public speaking banquet on February
8. Yet each one present had a feeling
of regret. as he knew the occasion was,
in reality, a farewell to the February
graduates, the "mid-year pioneer class"
The delicious edibles were served in
courses by the girls of Miss Post's
cooking class. The large gathering of
almost forty was continually delighted
for nearly four hours with stories, re-
partee, toasts, and fun. Dancing was
enjoyed by the feasters between the
The program, cleverly and tactfully
handled by Bernard Collins, toast-mas-
ter, began after the last course. After
advice and farewells were exchanged
between the graduates, hostess class,
and guests, eulogies bestowed upon the
cooking class, and toasts made by vari-
ous people, the evening was appropri-
ately closed with the presentation of a
beautiful potted plant to Miss M. U.
Howell, teacher of public speaking, by
the members of this year's class.
Some of the witty young public
speakers did credit to their year's train-
ing in the clever toasts which they de-
livered. Lawrence Ashley, the first
speaker, praised the domestic science
department and expressed his thanks.
in behalf of the class, for the dinner.
He proclaimed the domestic science de-

was better qualified to speak on the
preceding subject than Earl since he is
a great frequenter of the department

cited original poems, the former upon

The last speaker gave a toast to Miss
M. U. Howell, the instructor of the
class, and presented her in behalf of
the members a beautiful remembrance.
The guests were: the graduating
class, Miss Howell, Miss Alice Mc-
Innes, Mr. Berringer, Mrs. Bertholf,
Mrs. Peoples, Mrs. Miller, Mr. Hea-
cock, Miss Post, Miss Day.
First Freshman Reception
"VVhat's happening now?,' queried
the boys as many girls were seen pa-
rading toward the "gym" wearing tags.
No, they weren't for sale, it was part
of the Freshman Reception. The
seniors were distinguished by orange-
colored pumpkin faces. Blue-faced
labels distinguished the juniors. The
sophomores were lucky, they had yel-
low punch tickets. We must not for-
get our little ones to whom the recep-
tion was giveng they were adorned
with bibs, the symbols of infancy. The
designs were worked out by Agnes
McGee-chairman, Helen VVestgate,
and Georgia Smith.
At last the big time began with a
serpentine. The program was then an-
nounced by Charlotte Eekstrom, ring
master of the big three-ring circus.
Helen Gilbert began by singing "Sec-
ond Hand Rose", for which she re-
ceived a beautiful bouquet of carrots
and turnips. Easter Carigiet, Grace
Atherton, Jacqueline Johnson, and Ber-
nice VViley composed the chorus of
"Songsters of the Day". The voice of
talented Violet Ferguson was heard
next singing "Peggy O'Neil".
A Romeo and Juliet is needed to
complete a program, so Constance
Reed became a fair Juliet, and oh!
what a romantic Romeo was Margaret
Gealey with kiddie car and ukulele.
The spice of the program came last.
The old cave man, Jean Shepherd, was
most vicious with his fair woman,
Ellen Cary. It was next discovered
that a poor chief, Muriel Stroup, was
seeking vainly for little Minnie Ha Ha,
Denzel Houstead. A little more sing-
ing was yet needed, so Roberta Bush
sang a very late ballad, "Barefoot
Evelyn Quarrier made a beautiful
paper doll dressed in a costume of yel-
low and purple. Georgia S1nith, Ruth
Hands, Helen Carlin, and Marie
Hands gave a quaint dance, dressed as
old-fashioned "dairies", Ruth Zucker-
man and Ella Manuel appeared on the
scene, and oh! that dance!-one of
those South African tangos, which
make your hair raise. Audrey Bur-
roughs, VVilma Hubbard, and Vivian
Marchel labored to make the enter-
tainment a success.
Freshmen must thank Janet Case
Qchairmanj, Margaret Macnider, Kath-
leen Mitchell, and Alice Davies for be-
ing so kind as to serve them pretty
pink punch instead of milk.
After the entertainment, music for
dancing was furnished by Ruth Schim-
melpfennig and jean Shepherd, piano,
and Dorothy Robbins, banjo-uke.
Second Freshman Reception
There's a second time each year
when the freshie girls drink nice pink
punch. This year it was on April 7.
Tiny bibs with the word "baby" in-
scribed in gold letters adorned each
little newcomer. Then Vivian Manuel
led the serpentine of infants and seated
them all comfortably on the bleachers.
There was a screech from the poor lit-
tle ones when a crippled, colored man
appeared. After they discovered that
it was only Roberta Bush, they were
again contented. Roberta started the
program with a nice little talk.
A meeting of the G. 81 T. staff was
performed for the many students who
had never attended one of those gather-
ings, where the good "eats", such as
carrots, are passed. Ruth Ferguson
was a facsimile of Robert Carr. Vir-
ginia Gall made a beautiful reproduc-
tion of Carroll Cole. No one knew that
Helen McAfee looked so much like
Francis Smith before. Every one was
surprised when she found out Mary
Sortors wasn't really Miss Osborn.
Dorothy Carrow looked exactly like
Thelma Steinbeck. At last here came
Lana Root. Yes, sure enough she was
Roberta Bush to perfection.
The Egyptian dance was very popu-
lar. lt was hardly believable that
S. H. S. possessed such wonderful tal-
ent in Egyptian dancing as was shown
by Frances Henry, Dorothy Inglis, and
Reva Horwitz who accompanied Helen
Most little girls are sorry when they
have the mumps, but these next girls
were not, judging by the song they
sang. Kathryn Harris, Eleanor Pow-
ell, and Beula Ford sang each verse
alone, and Marjorie Rosen, Ruth
Hands, Georgia Smith, and Bernice
McArdle supported the soloists.
A young man, Florence W'illiams,
then proposed to a beautiful girl, Aud-
rey Iones. Later he dreamed of his
sweethearts. He saw them then one
by one-Genevieve Ryant, the Happerg
Alberta Horan, the riding girlg Ella
Manuel, the chorus girl, Grace Ather-
ton, the country girl, and Margaret
Macnider, the "vamp"
On the entertainment committee
were: Roberta Bush Cchairmanj,
Thelma Steinbeck, Helen Westgate,
Vwfilma Hubbard, Helen Carlin, Eliza-
beth Gibbons, and Sidney Ackerson.
The tag committee was Ardroe Perry
Cchairmanj, assisted by Elizabeth
Myatt. The decoration committee was:
Florence lVilliams Cchairmanj, Agnes
Boberg, and Melda Meritt. Thelma
Hogue fchairmanj, Ruth Hulen, Mad-
aline Vitaich, and Dorothy Quinn
served the refreshments.
Debating and Gratory
Debating, long laid on the shelf
as a major activity in Stockton High
School, has this year come nobly into
its own. Through the strenuous efforts
of Mr. G. Iliff and his group of
"VVranglers,', Stockton's debaters have
shown such ability that, when the an-
nual went to press, they had won Hve
complete victories out of eight debates
in which they had participated.
Besides carrying their regular stud-
ies, each debating team spent five
nights out of every week, for about two
quarters, in the school library in refer-
ence work and preparation of their
arguments. All members of the team
prepared extemporaneous speeches,
which require much more time and
work in preparation and a more thor-
ough understanding of the question
than do memorized ones.
The question, "Resolved: That Cali-
fornia should adopt the Kansas Court
of Industrial Relations Plan," was de-
bated with Fresno on March 17, Stock-
ton being represented at Fresno by a
negative team composed of Carlton
Rank and George Peunebaker. The
affirmative team composed of Robert
Carr and Carroll Cole remained at
home and debated with Fresno's nega-
tive team. Stockton won both debates.
George Ilgenfritz and Fred Spooner
on the afhrmative and Edward Smith
and Thomas Quinn taking the nega-
tive, debated the question, "Resolved:
That Congress should exempt U. S.
coast-wise shipping from Panama Ca-
nal Tolls," with Sonora on April 21.
Stockton again won both debates. The
same team debated the same question
with Newman on April 7, when the
Stockton affirmative team Won the de-
cision, but our negative team lost.
On May 1, the question, "Resolved:
That japan should be allowed to colon-
ize the maritime province of Siberia"
was debated with Turlock by Leslie
Harper and Henry Coffin, afhrmatives,
and Gardiner Duff and Howard Gard-
ner, negatives. Stockton was unfor-
tunate in both of these debates.
Wfhen the annual went to press,
Stockton was scheduled to debate with
Sacramento on the Panama Canal Tolls
question, with Turlock on the Kansas
Court questiong and with Oakdale and
several other schools in the league.
The popularity of oratory has also
increased. This was shown when nine
students prepared orations for the ora-
torical tryouts for the person to repre-
sent Stockton High School at the an-
nual oratorical contest of the Central
California Debating and Oratorical
League, that was held in Modesto on
Much ability was shown at the try-
outs, and any one of the contestants
would have made a creditable showing.
The names and subjects of those who
spoke at the tryouts are: George Pen-
nebaker, "The Price of Progress",
Helen WVestgate, "A Square Deal to
the Immigrant", Monroe Coblentz,
"Worlcl Unity", Robert Carr, "Napo-
leonism"g Vivian Uren, "Obedience
to Law"g Helen Hammer, "American-
izing the Immigrantug Thomas Quinn,
"Lloyd George", Edward Smith, "The
Red Scourge"g and Adella Grissel,
"Our Sacred Obligation".
Thomas Quinn was the orator chosen
to represent Stockton at the annual
contest. Tom carried away the honors
for the second consecutive time, and by
doing so not only covered himself with
the honor and distinction of being the
best high school orator in Central Cali-
fornia, but also made himself a Grand
Vlfrangler, having won live debating or
Better Speech VVeek, Roosevelt Day,
Grant Day, and Memorial Day have
been occasions on which the members
of the public speaking class, which is
under the instruction of Miss M. U.
Howell, have demonstrated their abil-
ity to deliver interesting and inspiring
speeches or orations. All such talks
were prepared by the members of the
class as a part of the work required in
National Better Speech Wieck, No-
vember 7 to ll, was a movement in
which the public speaking class took

the birth of General U. S. Grant was
celebrated by the school at a special

Decoration Day was another occa-
sion on which the public speaking class
planned to take the lead. As the an-
nual went to press, members of the
class were preparing talks to be given
when the class decorated with a wreath
the bronze memorial tablet.
At the annual banquet of the public
speaking class, February 8, members
of the class gave some very clever and
original speeches. Bernard Collins
acted as toastmaster. This was part
of the required work of the course. each
member being required to prepare
some speech that could be given at the
banquet, though only a few of them
could be delivered. This also gave the
February graduates a banquet. Del-
bert Miller acted as toastmaster.
The oral expression class under the
instruction of Miss Ann Wfilliams has
done considerable in oratory, and they
deserve special mention. :Xt almost
all of the special assemblies there were
one or two of the class who gave a talk.
Sometimes Friday, the thirteenth, is
really unluckyg but 'twas not, on that
famous Friday ou which we held this
year's first "Lyric Night." The 'fatal
number entered into the feature of the
evening as thirteen fellows performed
in the saxophone exhibition and ea1ne
far from hoo-dooing the affair, too.
The first act, "The lrloly Rollers",
was a surprise production presented
by Martin, Desmond, Archer, and Ga-
neles. Richard Proud, whom we all
know from his success in "Pinafore"
and the "Pirates", added to his reputa-
tion by singing "S-pringtime', and
"Sunny Tennessee". "Prof Svengali's
Snake Dancers" completed the pro-
gram by destroying the equilibrium of

The sun's last picture was painted
On the western skies that night,
And the last low-Hying lapwing
Sought the marsh down on the bight,
And the seas were gently throbbing
Out beyond the Portland light.
The dark was gathering swiftly,
And the fog effaeed the stars,
And the seas were summoning power
Like the thunder horn of Mars,
VVhen a vicious, knife-like cutter
Stole across the moaning bars.
Then a tramp slipped through the harbor
Up the XVoona channel way,
And she anchored in Lagoona
As if she meant to stayg
XN7hile the ghostly, knife-like cutter
Slcimmed past her down the bay.
A boat put from the wanderer,
And struck the sandy beach,
All laden down with boxes
And placed them out of reach
Of the mad-cap, racing billows
And the ocean's sucking leash.
Behind them came the cutter
And took them as they fled,
And shot the wanderer's bow and stern
So full of molten lead
The sea swelled to take its burden
To the kingdom of the dead.
The swell then caught the cutter
And struck it 'tween the decks
And opened wide its seams of pitch
Cn the ripping rocks of wrecksg
And the ship went down to Neptune
,Neath the foaming, white-cap Hecks.
Vlfheu the sun's last picture is painted
Un the western slopes of night,
And the last low-fiying lapwing
Seeks the marsh down on the bight,
And the seas are gently sobbing
Out beyond the Portland light,
Then a ghostly play is acted
Up the VVoona channel way
By the dead from off the smuggler
Down there beneath the bay,
Wfho are smuggling up their boxes
Ere the lights of dawn shall play.

The establishment of "The Dramatic
'VVorkshop" on the course of study in
Stockton High School this year is a
recognition of the excellent training
which dramatic activities can give.
"The Dramatic laforkshopu during the
Hrst year of its existence has gained a
reputation for the excellent quality and
finish of the programs which have been
The first program, given in the fall,
was a matinee. Two one-act plays by
American authors were presented.
"The Silver Lining" by Constance
D'Arcy lXclacKaye was selected for the
historical incident upon which it XVZIS
founded. The characters in the play
were: Fanny Burney, played by Eliza-
beth Edinger, and Richard Burney, by
Francis Smith. -
"Never-the-Less" by Stuart Walker
was a clever little play and very appro-
priate for National Speech Weelc. The
characters were: The Boy, Philip Bax-
ter: The Girl, Betty Coffin, The Burg-
lar, Reginald Gianelli.
On December 15, the second pro-
gram was given in the evening. Both
plays were written by Irish play-
wrights of international renown. "The
Bogie Man" by Lady Gregory was a
humorous play with genuine Irish
characterization. The scene was a
roadside in Ireland, and the conversa-
tion was in the Irish brogue. The
Irishmen were: Darby Melody, im-
personated by Robert Carr, and Taig
O'l-larragha, by Reginald Gianelli.
"The Tents of the Arabs" by Lord
Dunsany was given as an example of
the artistic poetic drama. The'scene
of the play was the gateway of the city
of Thalana. "The VVorkshop" designed
the setting oi the large arched gateway
through which a beautiful sunset des-
ert was visible. The sunset colors were
obtained by the use of a spotlight. The
new cycloramic curtain purchased by
this class was first used in this play.
Those who took part were: The King,
Mildred Norcrossg Bel Narb, Helen
Hammer, Aoob, Maryon Berry, The
Chamberlain, Frances Henry, Zabra,
Dorothy Carrowg Eznarza, a gypsy,
The third production, given on
March 31, consisted of two plays by
American authors of contrasting type.
The first was a light comedy of
American college life and problems,
The Ghost Story' by Booth Tarking-
toii. The setting was a modern living
room, and the characters were: Anna,
Betty Coihng George, Carlton lllil-
liamsg Mary, Dorothy Carrow 3 Tennie,
Hazel Carrowg Grace, Merren Bryant:
Tom, Reginald Gianelliz Floyd, 'XVil-
liam McArdle, Fred, Edwin Peoples,
Lynn, Palmer Goldberry.
"The Turtle Dove", by Margaret
Scott Oliver, was a Chinese play with
a setting in an imaginary Chinese gar-
den. The play was based on the legend
of the Vllillow Plate, a large replica of
which was hung in the back of the
garden. The characters were: Cho-
rus, Grace Salmon, Property Man,
Placido Laganapang Gong Bearer,
Frances Henry, Chang-Sut-Yen, Reg-
inald Gianellig Mandarin, Mildred Nor-
cross, Rivenlin, Adella Grissel: God
of Fate, Helen Hammer.
"The XVorkshop" has also assisted

The Latin Club used "The Wlork-
shop's" cycloramic curtain and some
of the adaptable settings for the Latin
play which they gave. The Philo-
mathean Club borrowed the cycloramic
curtain and adaptable settings from
this class, and members of "The
XlVOI'liSll0l5H were the stage managers
for the "jinx".
The actual production of plays is an
important part of the year's work, but
"The VVorlcshop" has other work to do.
The study of the technique of drama,
the reading of plays in class, and the
writing of original plays forms another
part of the course. "The Xkforlcshopl'
also studies the Little Theater Move-
ment and aims to further an interest
in good drama.
The coaching and instruction in this
course has been the work of Miss Car-
rie D. XVright. lt has been her capable
management and planning that has
made possible the excellence and qual-
ity of the programs.
"The Dramatic XVorlcsliop" is self-
supporting and a non-profit-inaking
Memories are wonderful possessions,
and, although it is said that there are
few who really are blessed with mem-
ories that reach back years and years,
it is certain that not one person who
saw the comic opera, "Pinafore", pre-
sented at the I-lippodrome Theatre on
january 27 and 28 by the Music De-
partment, will not remember it and
every character in it even unto the
time when he possesses numerous gray
hairs or a perfectly beautiful bald
organization. The price of admission
has always been democratic. A cyclo-
ramic curtain, valued at eighty dollars,
new costumes, adaptable settings, and
a spotlight have been purchased this
year with the proceeds of the plays and
presented as permanent gifts to the
Drama Class Play
The History of Drama is a course
which was given during the hrst S6111-
ester by M iss Carrie D. W'right. This
course gives a survey of drama from
the beginning to the present day. A
part of the course was the production
of a play. "The Man NVho Married a
Dumb XVife", by Anatole France, was
given on February 10 in the evening
and on February 14 in the afternoon.
The play was based on the trials of
Master lyeonard Botal who had mar-
ried a dumb wife. A surgeon was
recommended to loosen her tongue.
He was so successful that the wife
never ceased talking. The only remedy
for the ceaseless chatter ofthe wife
was deafness for the husband. Master
Botal willingly accepted the cure.
Every member in the class had a part
in the program.
It will be remembered that the opera
was a financial success, also, and that
from the S1100 taken in, there was
about 213600 surplus which was used to
pay for the new school piano. This
accomplishment was the result of the
combined efforts of the coaches, Mr.
Frazee, Mr. Iliff, and M iss Mosbacherg
of the publicity manager, George Hark-
ness, aided by the best journalists in
the school g of the art department which
contributed the posters and sceneryg
of Tom Quinn, student body manager,
H. M. S. PINAFORE DECKS
and of lil r. Toms, the business manager
and financier. Special mention should
be made of the scenery, which, as can
be seen in the cut of the cast, was most
finished and artistic, and was largely
the work of Ralph Gray, Richard
Thomas, and jack Thomas.
lt has been said repeatedly that
almost the only time the people in
Stockton have the pleasure of seeing a
good opera or play, the high school is
behind -the production, and the state-
.nient certainly was more than true this
Edward Smith, as Sir Joseph Porter,
K. C. B., rivaled the most experienced
actor in his portrayal of that famous
character. ln fact, he entered into his
part with such earnestness that he has
a hard time keeping from being old Sir
joseph even now.
The next best dramatic portrayal
was believed by many to be that of
Irene I-lon as "little Buttercup", who,
if she continues as she has begun, de-
velops the talent she evidently pos-
sesses, and does not waste her abilities,
will assuredly deserve an even more
prominent part next year, perhaps that
of the star of the opera which is pro-
duced then. Both her voice and acting
were far above the average, and her
enunciation was clearness itself.
blames Barsi, in his difficult character
part of Dick Deadeiye, the villain, was
the next best in dramatic work. This,
excepting Sir Ioseph's part, was the
hardest to fill. Yet jimmy kept the
audience convulsed with laughter dur-
ing the entire performance with his
comic, villainous actions. Q
Bernice Wfiley possesses undoubtedly
one of the best soprano voices ever de-
veloped in Stockton High. Indeed, one
feels that it would take a long mein-
ory to remember her equal, provided
she has one. Her dramatic work does
not compare with her musical ability,
but, could she forget herself a little
more, she might earn the highest hon-
ors it would be possible to award to
an opera star. Her voice has improved
since the "Pirates", and, if she con-
tinues to train it, in a few years, she
will have an almost clear road before
her toward Success.
Leo Foster, as Captain Corcoran,
handled the dimcult part of a dignified
captain and a father quite well, but he
needs more conlidence in himself. If
he receives the training next year that
he has had this, he will probably sur-
prise everyone. His voice is good and
is improving, and the same can be said
for his acting.
Both the choruses were at most ini-
portant part of the opera. Their clever
and amusing gestures and ensemble
work showed genuine effort on their
part as well as on that of the coaches.
After the play was over, students and
the public who saw the opera could be
heard singing snatehes of song or re-
peating little sayings heard in it, and
echoes of it even today prove the depth
and lastingness of the impression
which it made.

The acknowledged success of the
1922 senior play rests upon four main
essentials necessary to the successful
production of any play: a wise selec-
tion, a talented, hardworking cast, ex-
cellent coaching, and efficient manage-
ment, all of which the class of '22 had.
The committee responsible for the
choice of "The Tailor-Made Man" by
Harry J. Smith, carefully considered a
dozen or more plays before making its
selection, but, after considering the
personnel of the senior class and re-
ceiving the recommendation of two of
the faculty, Miss Mosbacher and Mr.
Iliff, and the approval of Miss M. U.
Howell, head of the English Depart-
ment, the committee finally decided
upon the late George M. Cohen success
Robert Carr added one more victory
to his long line of dramatic triumphs
for the admirable way in which he sus-
tained the character of john Paul Bart.
Many were delighted with his interpre-
tation of the character of a dashing,
self-conhdent young man. In his por-
trayal of the- "Tailor-Made Man",
Robert was so natural and seemed so'
well poised that the audience forgot,
at times, that they were attending an
1 The part of Doctor Sontag, perhaps
the hardest character part in the play,
was done to perfection by Edward
Smith, who once before had captivated
Stockton audiences as Sir joseph Por-
ter in "Pinafore." Edward, having
studied carefully the variation of
moods and meanings in his part, did
no common acting, but, perhaps, made
the most subtle delineation of all.
The one part in the play which could
not depend upon witticisms, brogue, af-
fectations, or mannerisms was the part
of Tanya Huber, taken by Dorothy
Harper. The success of this character
depended upon good, substantial act-
ing, and Dorothy did it justice.
But Mrs. Dupuy, the divorcee, por-
trayed by Georgia Smith, and Miss
Bessie, uh"iOtl'lC1'yS Little XNindHower"
taken by Florence lfVilliams, provided
the comic element of the production.
Nobody but Georgia could have walked
oh: so easily with the part of the well
meaning, adected, Hirtatious divoreee.
And every time Florence opened her
mouth, the audience laughed. The
cause was just her innocent blank look!
Lawrence Seifert acted Mr. Huber
remarkably well. No one would have
guessed that it was his iirst stage
Francis Smith played the part of the
newspaper reporter, Mr. Rowlands,
very satisfactorily. I-le was breezy
and careful to the delight of all.
Mrs. Stanlaw and her daughter
Corinne were pictured to the audience
play deserve no less praise than the
as real, cultured, social climbing soci-
ety women by Constance Reed and
Helen Vlfestgate. Constance Reed's
own natural dignity contributed much
to the success of her part, while Helen
Westgate knew perfectly the ways of
a spoiled society girl. -
Ray Stiles' naturalness and heavy,
even voice made the part of Mr. Na-
than stand out in the minds of the
VVallace Rohrbacher imitated well a
loud, well meaning business man.
Henry Preston surprised everybody
in his presentation of a pessimistic old
gentleman, Mr. Wfhitcomb.
The difficulty in the part of Peter
McConkie was the Scotch brogue, but
Scott Ford mastered it well.
The part of Miss Shayne, lJart's
stenographcr, was done in a business-
like and convincing manner by Flor-
Those who took minor parts in the
rest, for it takes only one poor actor to
spoil a good play, but all the minor
parts were done in such a linished man-
ner as to lend attractiveness to the pro-
But in spite of all the talent in the
cast, the play demanded the expert and
untiring coaching of Mr. Iliff and Miss
Mosbacher to develop and mould the
talent into a satisfactory presentation.
Week after week they worked with the
cast, giving every inch of themselves.
Anything in the way of praise goes to
them. Though it is impossible to ex-
press their appreciation, the seniors
hold in their hearts the greatest re-
spect and admiration for the coaches of
"The Tailor-Made Man."
Wallace Rohrbacher deserves the
thanks of the school for the efficient
management of the production. To
him is due the financial success.
To every one, the senior play of 1922
stands out as one of the biggest events
and most successful undertakings of

The Gifts of Past Classes
As heir of all the classes. Stockton
High School reverently cherishes each
class's material tribute to her halls.
Only the old rooms remember all the
individual students of yesterday's
classes, but the spirit of these departed
ones speaks in the gift which they
placed in keeping with dear old Stock-
Long ago, when the school was
small, serene, and self-satisfied, began
these welcome gifts. From the Class of
1912 came the beautiful statutes of
Venus de Milo and the Victory of
Samothrace to grace the ends of the
The entrance of the main building is
artistically enhanced with the two
friescs in high relief of Aurora and
the Grecian Maidens. Two circular
placques of Night and Morning in bas
relief hang on either side of the clock.
These four terracottas were the gifts
ofthe Class of 1913.
On the second floor at the head of
the stairs is found a very characteristic
portrait statue of Saint Gauden's Abra-
ham Lincoln. The plate at the foot of
the statue reads, Class of 1914.
Counting only the sunny hours of
high school life, the sun dial in front of
the main building perpetuates the
memory of the Class of 1915 to future
high school generations.
The Class of 1916 commemorated
their sojourn here by a beautiful pic-
ture from a scene in Shakespeare's
"1X'lid-summer Night's Dream." This
class gave a remarkable production of
'fMid-summer Night's Dream" for their
The war caused a change in the char-
acter of the gifts of the next classes.
Patriotism and service are the keynote
of their memorial tokens.
The Class of 1917 gave a First Lib-
erty Loan bond, which will be pre-
sented as a scholarship to some deserv-
in0' student in S. lfl. S. when it matures.
The Class of 1918 followed the patri-
otic lead and gave one hundred dollars
to the junior Red Cross. They also

Stockton High School has been en-

ships, which will be awarded to the
graduates of 1922.
These scholarships are awarded on
the bases of scholarship, character, and
need. The seniors who are qualified
to apply for them present their testi-
monials to the principal before May 15
of each year. An important part of
the Commencement Exercises each
year is the announcement for the iirst
time oi the names of the recipients of
The tour scholarships in the order of
their establishment are the following:
I. The Jerome C. Levy Scholarship.
Six years ago Mr. and Mrs. Max
Levy established the -lerome C. Levy
Scholarship in memory of their son
who died in the fall of 1915 during his
sophomore year at high school.
The scholarship awarded annually
to the most deserving student who is
to take a course at the University of
California. The award is one hundred
dollars. The students who have been
awarded this scholarship are:
Xafilliam B. Faulkner, class of 1916.
Theodore I-I. McMurray, class of
Cynthia Purviance, class of 1918.

II. The Lillian M. Cunningham-
The Lillian M. Cunningham-Confer
scholarship was first presented in June,
1919. This perpetual scholarship was
given by Mrs. Frank S. Boggs in mem-
ory of her sister, Mrs. Lillian M. Cun-
ningham-Confer, who graduated from
Stockton l-Iigh School in 1886 and died
in 1903. By it the sum of one hundred
dollars is awarded to a deserving grad-
uate who may enter either the Univer-
sity of California or Stanford Uni-
versity. This scholarship has been
awarded to three students who are:

for whom the scholarship was named.
It is awarded on the same credentials
as the other scholarships and yields an
annual sum of one hundred dollars to
be given a girl who is entitled to enter
a higher institution of learning. The
tirst girl entitled to this scholarship
was Clara Lucille I-lall, class ot 1921.
IV. The Rotary Club Circulating
The Stockton Rotary Club inaugu-
rated this scholarship in the spring

Progressive Government for progressiye Students
A change has been coming over
Stockton lfliffh School. This is a O'ood
omen, for nothing can progress and re-
main always the same. And, as in the
lar0'er world. 0'overnments and institu-
tions chanffe to meet the needs of a
progressive people, so should student
bodv frovernment chanfre to meet the
. b bv
needs of a progressive school.
.Ks a result ol this change the ques-
tion arises: A-Xre the students ot Stock-
ton 'lligh going to make their constitu-
tion lit their widened needs, or are
they. for fear of showing irrevereuce to
such an ancient document, going to
narrow their needs to their constitu-
tion? There exist today three reasons
why the old constitution should be
taken from the shelf, dusted, reread for
the last time, and laid to rest. 'lllie llrst
is that class representation should be
abolished since class spirit in the school
is dead 3 the second is that the linancial
handling of all activities should pass
through the l'executive" committee:
the third is that the new steadily grow-
ing activities. dramatics, debating, and
journalism should be represented in
the executive body of the school as well
as, and on an equality with, athletics.
Combined these three reasons resolve
into one reason. which is-our school
government should be progressive.
Under the present system of student
body government, the all-high "execu-
tive- committee" consists of the presi-
dent: vice-president, who is the head
of the girls' student controlg the sec-
ond vice-president, who is the head of
the boys' student controlg secretary
and treasurer: faculty representativeg
two editors of the publicationsg one
representative of the sophomore classg
two representatives each of the junior
and senior classes, all of whom are
elected by the student body at large.
'l'he freshmen remain unrepresented
since they have not had time to learn
the many and burdensome duties ot a
conscientious student body member.
Xliithout going into details, we will
vouch that many evils exist under this
system, but the most inefficient feature
of it is the representation by classes.
Class spirit has been so long dead in
good old Stockton High that the oldest
post graduate cannot remember the
last "tug o' war." Wihat do these class
representatives do? They have never
been known to do more than second a
motion in an official meeting of the
'l'he newly found necessity that all
activities should be regulated by the
executive committee is based on a solid
foundation. 'l"he committee would like
to do something other than read bills.
Besides, the regulation of all financial
matters by the executive body will
lighten the burdened shoulders of the
supporters of dramatics, debating, and
journalism when they know that the
worry of getting the school to support
such activities falls on the strong back
of the executive committee.
Up to last year, athletics was con-
sidered the only activity worth men-
tioning in the school. It was the only
one the school had to support. But
last year two other activities gained
in strength-dramatics, including the
opera, and debating. This year both
have blossomed forth as hard work and
good coaching foretold. This year the
school offered two semesters in the
drama course where last year it offered
but one, and in place of the old dra-
matic club, has come the dramatic
workshop course. Last year a new de-
bating body, the Vlfranglers' Club, was
organized for debaters and speakers.
Its members were the organizers of a
California debating league, and the
club shows prospects of becoming a
state-wide organization, for other
schools have asked for copies of its
constitution and ritual. journalism
has grown to larger proportions. Two
semesters a year of news writing are
being offered, and the school publica-
tions this year are managed by two
editors, managers, and staffs. This all
goes to show that athletics is no longer
the only activity, as it seems to have
been when our present constitution
As long as we have a student body
government, an executive committee,
and a dollar registration fee, it is right
that all activities should be handled
in the same body, but not by so small
and unrepresentative a body. Those
who have worked hard, constantly, and
faithfully to build up these other im-
portant school enterprises to the posi-
tion they now hold do not care to en-
trust their interests to a body of stu-
dents who are not particularly in sym-
pathy with them or who do not under-
stand them and their needs. The thing
to do, then, is to do away with those
representatives in the committee who
do not represent anything and let those
offices be filled by representatives of
dramatics, debating. and school pub-
In other words, let us adopt a mod-
ern scheme of commission form of stu-
dent body government.
The commission government would
have advantages over the present sys-
tem in that it would lighten the burden
of the few who now do all the work,and
distribute among nine or ten commis-
sioners the responsibility of running
the school affairs, commissioners who
representatives as well as re-
sponsible heads for specific activities.
ln the commission system of gov-
the commission, which cor-
to the executive committee,
would consist of the commissioner of
public order fpresidentj, commissioner
of social affairs fvice-presidentj, com-
missioner of finance fsecretary and

ics, commissioner of public speaking
Qwhich includes dramatics and debat-
ingl, commissioner of school publica-
tions, and two faculty representatives,
one representating the boys' interests
and one representing the girls' inter-
All these new activities ask for is
real representation. Stockton High is
large enough for more than one inter-
est. lt is growing into a larger, finer,
and better school each year. But its
bonds must be broken before it can
take another step.
ratitude to the Staff
The editor's appreciation for the
work of his staff and Miss Osborn.
faculty adviser of the Guard and
Tackle, can not be expressed. lfle can
only thank them with words, for he is
ever indebted to his helpers for the
publication of this book, a work xvhich,
without their support and eiorts,
would never exist, and to whom he
largely owes whatever success or orig-
inality the Zlllllllill attains.
In accordance with her interest in a
successful and creditable annual, Miss
Osborn, the statf's friend, and the
faculty adviser, worker, -and helper,
has burned more midnight oil and used
up more pencils in behalf of the year-
book than any other person. Her
efforts have been untiring and her pa-
tience almost inexhaustible. "Never
has an editor had such a staff", she
often says, but it is truer that never
has an editor had such an adviser.
Thelma Steinbeck has been a most
efficient associate editor as well as an
original writer and successful execu-
tive of the staff. To her is due praise
and credit fully equal to that of the
editor for the merits of this book.
Bernice Mcxlrrdle has been a con-
scientious, hard-working, and depend-
able assistant editor. She has taken
responsibility and shown initiative in
her contribution toward the year-book.
ln all the staff, the editor has found
originality, dependability, and ability.
And he takes this opportunity to ex-
press his thanks and appreciation for
their loyal and able support.
ln Appreciation of Cut Faculty
Even as the wonders of the great
out-of-doors, so often disregarded or
taken for granted, arouse, in one who
stops to think and feel, emotions of joy
and thankfulness, so does the realiza-
tion of the humanness, kindness, and
sincerity of our faculty till us with
gratitude and real appreciation when
xve stop but a moment to think them
Many of us students criticize teach-
ers as a sort of habit or pose, call them
slave drivers, or even less complimen-
tary names, when these very students
hasten to their te21chers for every kind
of advice and assistance, help that no
teacher is required to give.
So teaching seems, on the surface,
to be a rather thankless occupation,
but this is not really trueg for, although
the majority of the students seem to
accept the advice, friendship, and extra
instruction as a matter of course, every
one realizes in his inniost heart just
how much he owes to the unselhsh
teachers who stay after school and im-
part their knowledge, in and out of
hours, to the enquiring young persons.
The unwilling, the unfortunate, the
exceptionally interested, or the espe-
cially intelligent student often holds a
teacher until six o'clock or later, and
many instructors seem to delight in
staying, seem to feel glad to help the
youthful enthusiast along his or her
special bent or interest.
Thus, in Stockton High School there
has arisen a superior feeling of com-
radeship between the student and the
teacher, a feeling in the heart of each
that the other is interested in him or
in her. It lifts learning to the level of
a joy for the student, instead of a bur-
den, and as many of the instructors
succeed in making their subjects,
which might be dull and tiresome, real
and intensely interesting, the school-
room seems but a workshop in which
to prepare gladly for present life and
There are many teachers, in fact, a
great majority, who possess high
ideals, which they live up to, and thus
set a clean, inspiring example for all
their students. One was heard to re-
mark, "If I should see a pupil cheating
in an examination, it would nearly
kill me, for I would realize that I had
failed-that I had not succeeded in
bringing my ideals vividly before my
Teachers sometimes receive appre-
ciation years afterwards when those
who have been out of school for several
years return to tell of the effects upon
their lives of their teachers' words or
instruction: but we of today wish to
say to this true-blue faculty with whom
we associate daily, that every one of
the students should and does feel more
than glad and satisfied to spend four
ol the best years of his life in the com-
panionship of the real Stockton High
School faculty. -T. S.

Special G. an T. Editions
A great many times this year, on the
VVednesdays on which the special edi-
tions were published, students have
been thrilled and excited and have
longed, before the distribution hour
had arrived, to dash over to a tantaliz-
ing pile of brightly colored green and
red, orange and black, or blue and
white "Guard and Tackles". Nine of
the most clever, original, and live edi-
tions have been issued this year, not to
mention the fact that a number of cuts
and cartoons have appeared in nearly
The first edition fSeptember 283 de-
serves special mention, as it was one
of the very best numbers that has been
issued. A picture of the president of
the student body, Ray Stiles, and of the
vice-president, Dorothy Harper, with
the addition of a written statement of
their policies beneath, were the fea-
tures. There was also a well written
article introducing the twelve new
teachers in the faculty, and another
telling the cost of the new Building of
Commerce, 5E2l2,000. Then, of course,
every one will remember the thrilling
article about how "Ye Scribe Smith
hopped bells and broke hearts and
trunks fmostly trunksj by his rough
handling at Glacier Point Hotel, Yo-
semite Park, this summer."
WVith a Hash of color, the l-lallowe'en
edition COctober 26j was sent around
to the 3:05 classes. lt was printed in
black on orange paper and featured a
clever spooky cut by Ralph Gray. To
carry out the Hallowe'en idea, a clev-
erly written story about an aquarium
of queer fish was given the most
In this same issue "Bobbye" Stein-
beck revealed some guarded secrets
from the women teachers' diaries,
"And what did you do at Hallowe'en,
Between the ages of six and sixteen?"
George Harkness told tales out of
school concerning the youthful pranks
of the male faculty members of our
dearly beloved school.
just as the students were longing
hardest for the turkey to be served,
the Thanksgiving edition was pub-
lished fNovember ZSJ. Dick Thomas
contributed a cartoon at this time rep-
resenting the agonies that the brain of
a poor "stride" must go through when
he is supposed to be studying just be-
fore Thanksgiving while a stern-faced
"prof" looks on ferociously. There
was an interesting article about the
broad smile on Lowell Garrison's face,
which was not caused by Flora, but by
"Young Pop's" getting "one plus" in
a chemistry "ex", and much more of
equally great interest and value.
The Christmas edition QDecember
215 was a gay Merry Christmas tri-
colored affair printed with black ink on
a new and pleasing shade of green
paper. The G. te T. head was in red
ink as also were a "Very Happy New
Year" and a jolly Santa Claus face on
the sport page. The front page sported
a cartoon by Ralph Gray showing all
the things for which the Christmas
season forces a S. H. S. fellow to spend
his hard cash. An interesting article
was featured in this number telling of
the more than twenty-six families who
had been adopted by the girls' adviser
sections to receive Christmas boxes.
XVe learn also that "XfVhen Mel Ben-
nett was asked if he had any 'VVhis-
kers' to contribute this week, he said
No, but he was going to get a shave

ary l8j with the more than famous
blue Pinafore sailor happily wav-

Richard Proud over pleasing criticisms
of their respective musical abilities
were on the front page, which was
filled principally with articles on the
opera. Hank Coiiin, 'famous runner,
announced in this edition that he was
going to join the Al Greeco Qneening
Association Qhave patience, girlsj.
The Journalism edition fFebruary
lj, which was edited by George Diffen-
derfer, was made more than usually in-
teresting with many signed articles,
was a well-organized paper, and some
'few boys had the courage to say it
almost equaled the "Girls' Parasol
Press" edition of last year. l'Spud,'

as saying that "a whiffle-poof dog is

his right legs, so that he can walk

"special" tMarch 161 with its 'tVietory

center of a white background. lt was
occasioned by S. H. Sfs winning the

headline: Llue and Wliite Embar-
rass Helpless Rail-splitters. Big Mys-
tery: How Did They Beat Rio Vista?
They VVere Fast: But 'What W'ere
They Fast To ?,' There were also a cut
of the "Terrible Tarzansl' and a short
article on each player. In another col-
umn we learn that "Kewpie" Rodgers
of the Matrimonial Bureau says he has
a sore head. A thought just struck
The last special edition before the
annual went to press was the hrst
paper of the year that contained an
insert. lt was the result of S. H. Sfs
capturing the state title in basket ball.
And there was a Ralph Gray cut show-
ing that coaching by Coach Lenz, who
was represented by a light-house lens,
and good team work were "The light
that saved the crew." In the insert
was a cut of the proposed new audi-
torium of S. H. S. which will seat
twenty-four hundred people, and a
bird's eye view of the present grounds
with the approximate location of the
auditorium site drawn in. "Leo Foster
is so dumb he thinks Sing Sing is a
college of music", was the startling an-
nouncement for the week of the editor
of "GooHets from the Gat Box."
VVhispers are rife of more "specials"
to be issued during the last few weeks,
but early publication of the annual for-
bids the present historian from record-
ing them in this gallery of fame where
they will so surely deserve a place.
Glorious as the springtime,
Unblighted youth goes by,
Leaving in Memory's casket
ldeals that never dieg
And all along life's journey,
'Hopes bright as burnished gold
Allure the heart and memory,
And lighten up the soul.
Even as the Honor Scholarship So-
ciety is a new departure this year, aim-
ing to inspire students to reach beyond
ordinary accomplishments in their
studies, so is this new section of the
annual, "Stellar Students." intended as
an incentive to every student to excel.
to outshine all his past records, along
his or her best bent. Many are the
people who are "going to do" some
marvelous thing, but scarce, indeed, are
they who really accomplish the won-
drous deed and mount the ladder of
.llefore the Honor Scholarship So-
ciety was introduced, there was no spe-
cial honor connected with receiving
high marks or surpassing others in an
activityg at most, only one's friends
heard of it, and they soon forgot. But
this new department, coupled with the
Society, gives a proper recognition to
those who have given their time and
effort to accomplishing something
above and beyond the requirements.
Scholarship: Kathryn Harris
Kathryn Burns ll-larris is herewith
awarded the greatest honor that can
ever be accorded a high school student.
She is the recognized star student of
1921-1922 in S. lol. S. Kathryn had
earned seventy-live scholarship points
at the end of the third quarter. lt was
because of her initiative, leadership,
originality, and cleverness in the soci-
ety itself that she has won her place as
the best student in the school. Evelyn
Sanguinetti had the same number of
points, and deserved almost equal
honor, but, in the opinion of the wisest,
Kathryn is ahead.
The winner linished high school in
three years, taking eight subjects .in
her' senior year. Yet she is always
ready for a good time and always more
than ready to lend a helping hand to
any worthy school cause.
Drarnatics: Robert Carr
The dramatic held is a large and ex-
pansive one, where a certain person
may star in one type of impersonation
and yet be surpassed by far in another
of a different order. But Robert Carr
has starred in eleven plays, and in each
one he has shown ability to portray a
more or less widely diferent type of
'llfle should never take any other part
than that of an old man", the dramatic
coach was told by one of the teachers
after a notable success in such an im-
personation3 and the students, friends,
teachers, and even "Bob" himself
agreed. lelut the coach soon gave him
the part of a dashing, lordly young
prince, and Bob surpassed even her
most sanguine expectations in that
role. A typical lrish chimney sweep,
a Cardinal, a stern middle-aged Puri-
tan father, the handsome hero in the
senior play. and a host of other types
pass in review before the memories of
his many audiences. Last year a play
of which he was the author, "The lNise
Monkeys", was presented, and showed
much originality and thought. His
dramatic experience helped him to in-
terpret the great master in the Shake-
spearean contest at Berkeley so -that
he was chosen for the nnals last year.
This year he was again chosen as one
of the seven best readers among the
boys in the state and was judged next
to the best in this selected group.
Yet "Bob" has not confined his
eitorts to dramatic work entirely. He
was among the highest candidates for
four out of the six departments in
"Stellar Students". Scholarship, ora-
tory and debating, i' journalism, and
drama have claimed his efforts, and he
has reached high attainment in each.
His has been an exceptionally versatile
high school career.
Journalism: Thelma Steinbeck
ln a quiet, calm, and determined
way, Thelma Steinbeck has become an
influence in Stockton High School for
better, livelier news writing and, by
her work on the annual, for journal-
ism in general. As news editor of the
weekly, she made the front page of the
Guard and Tackle intensely interesting,
and through her clever brilliant style,
the students have unconsciously be-
come acquainted with something out-
side the ordinary in news writing. As
associate editor of the annual, she will
long be remembered for the individual
senior histories which delight the
reader again and again by their breezy
and refreshing style.
But "Bobbie's" unrivaled success
lies on a sound foundation. From the
time she entered last year's February
journalism class, her hope, ambition,
and determination have been to be the
editor of a publication of her own,
And with that singleness of purpose,
she became one of the best news
editors the Guard and Tackle ever had.
One can safely say that she has written
more than any one else in the school,
and not only that. but she has also
contributed more to the city dailies
than any other school news Writer.
Yet her style has not suffered from her
voluminous writing, but has grown in
strength and variation.
The students will miss her articles
next year, and those interested in the
school publications hate to lose her
faithful support: yet, judging from her
high school career, they all hold in
their thoughts a bright and successful
future for the 'fstari' journalist of 1921-
Oratory and Debating: Thomas Quinn
Not only in Stockton High School
is 'llom Quinn considered the most lin-
ished and fluent orator and debater,
but he has won the annual oratorical
contest of the Central California Debat-
ing and Oratorical League for the last
two consecutive years.
Tom and his partner, Edward Smith,
have debated for nearly two years, and
during the last part of last year, they
won their hrst debate. Since then they
have XVO11 in every debate except one in
which they have participated. Tom is
an exceptionally effective extemporane-
ous speaker, easy and forceful of ges-
ture, possessed of a good, clear voice
and enunciation, and deeply and seri-
ously interested in his subjects.
As a debater the same qualities are
foremost, aided by his thorough re-
search and quick replies. One special
feature in all of his speaking is the way
in which he holds his audiences spell-
bound with his climaxes.
As in the case of Robert Carr, 'l'om's
abilities are not along a single track.
Besides being recognized as S. H. S.'s
best public speaker, he has made a suc-
cessful president of both his junior and
senior classes, been manager of this
year's basket ball team and the opera,
"Pinafore", and participated in many
Music: Bernice Wiley
lX'lany times since Shakespeare said
it, has it been repeated that "Music
hath charms to soothe the savage
breast", and Bernice VViley's voice cer-
tainly has charmed many breasts, both
savage and civilized, ever since she
first began singing. That time, to be
perfectly exact, was when she first
stepped from her cradle. l-ler voice
now, however, is an unusually high
coloratura soprano, one of the highest
and best that has ever been developed
in the school. .
Last year she brought her name and
self into prominence by successfully
taking the leading part in the comic
opera, "The Pirates of Penzance",
and, although many of her hcarers be-
lieved that her voice could hardly be
improved upon then, it was found
this year that they were wrong. As
Josephine in "Pinafore", her tones were
almost perfection itself, and she was
forced to respond to encore after
Her musical instructor, Mr. Frazee,
is delighted with her superb voice, and
is certain that if Bernice makes the
most of her gift and abilities, she can
be sure of capturing any audience be-
fore which she sings.
Athletics: Claude Zent
"Truly a wonder athlete-probably
the greatest all-around prep star in
California todayf' Vtfith these words
john Peri, sport editor of the "Stockton
Record," indicates for us the athletic
reputation which Claude Zent has
earned for himself during his high
Zent started on his road to fame in
the realm of football when he was a
junior. He distinguished himself in
this sport by being chosen as "all
northern" center for California. This
last year he has repeated the story but
even more brilliantly.
ln basket ball his height and accurate
eye for the basket early distinguished
him as a truly great center. He op-
posed no center during 1920-1921 that
could outjump him, and the basket ball
team, largely due to his assistance,
played the championship game of cen-
tral California before it was defeated
by two points. The next year-Zent was
captain of the basket ball team which
won the state championship in a final
game with Alhambra at Los Angeles.
He is noted as one of the best all-
round swimmers in the state. He holds
the state record in the 100 yard back-
stroke, having swum it in 1:15. Zent
swims about every stroke a swimmer
could have and is master of each one.
At the time of this annual's going to
press, he is trying to break the national
backstroke record for 100 yards, which
is a second and two-nfths faster than
his record. -
This year Zent added another letter
to his gallant half dozen by becoming
one of our few stars at track. He has
high-jumped 5 feet 8 inches and broad-
jumped 20 feet. For all these reasons,
Claude is awarded first place in ath-
letics for 1921-1922

A Canine Dr. Jekyll
QFirst Prize Storyj
Only a year ago I was the happiest
dog in the whole wide world. l'Iadn't
my reputation as the best sheep dog
in the southwest been firmly estab-
lished in the annual sheep herding con-
tests? Iladn't I the guardianship over
the lincst Hock of sheep in Arizona?
VVasn't my master the kindest, best-
hearted, and bravest man that ever
lived? I loved him with a devotion
that was all-consuming: I would sooner
have died by inches than cause him
one second's sorrow. Dear lXlaster.
why! Oh why! couldn't I have died
then, while I was yet clean and pure,
while my honor was yet unsullicd?
W'hy couldn't I have died before I
brought destruction upon you whom I
love better than anything in all the
Wfe were happy, my master and I,
in our life as recluses, until my horror
assailed 1ne. Une black night Master
had posted me on guard while he went
over to a near-by camp to discuss the
new forest ranger. I'd been feeling ill
all day, I was quite fagged out. If
Master had been there with me, I
never should have fallen victim to the
melancholia that engulfed me. Wliile
I was feeling very, very sorry for my-
self. a thought shot through my mind.
If I could only get away, cut loose, do
all the devilrnent I could in that one
night, then in the morning, Master
would be none the wiser, and I should
have worked all the evil out of my soul.
At any other time, I would have put
that thought aside instantly, but to-
night I was in a mood very receptive
to evil. So I struggled. Finally, by
sheer will power, I was able to put the
For a week I thought no more of it.
Then Master had to go to town for
supplies. Left alone, with no one to
talk to me, to scratch my back, to call
me Doc tklaster had named me after
a Dr. Jekyll who, he said, was "true
blue",J the idea popped into my head
once more. I brooded over it for per-
haps an hour. Suddenly I became a
changed dog. Gone were all my kindly
instincts: I was filled with a lust for
bloodg l wanted to kill! I seemed per-
meated by coyote-like cunning.
So I committed one of the most hein-
ous crimes of the sheep country, I
deserted my flock. I hurtled across
the meadow, through the silent pines,
over hills and down dales. Mile upon
mile reeled out from under my feet.
Finally, far from home, I found a flock
of sheep guarded by a single dog. I
accosted him, told him who I was, and
edged up close to him.
"VVell, Doc", he said, "I'm powerful
glad to see you. It sure does get lone-
some herding sheep, especially if your
master is in love. I-Ias your master
moved his flock over here ?"
I didn't say a word, only moved a
little closer. My manner must have
seemed queer, because my friend next
said, "Say, Doc, what's the matter with
"This," I growled.
Witli that I dived for his throat.
Caught completely off his guard, he
went down with a groan, his neck
slashed to the bone. The taste of blood
drove away, for a space, my coyote
courage and caution. Rushing among
those sheep, I cut, slashed, tore, gashed,
killed, killed, killed, until my lust for
blood was absolutely glutted.
Now my coyote nature returned.
Back for home I sped. In the lirst
stream I Came to I washed off all traces
of my raid, eve11 any tell-tale wool that
might have lodged in the corners of
my mouth. VVhen I arrived home, I
found that the sheep were safe and
sound, and that Master had not come
home yet. My madness left me. The
doings of that night seemed but a
frightful dream. I was once more the
For a month all was well. All evil
seemed purged from my soul by that
one awful night. My love for Master
seemed greater than ever if that were
possible. Once I had an opportunity
to demonstrate it. Master was taking a
nap at the base of a big boulder, I was
guarding the sheep. Looking up, I
saw a rattler coiled on Master's chest.
Knowing that when he woke up and
moved, the snake would strike, I ran
toward the sleeping man as hard as I
could. About the time I judged the
snake would strike, I dug in my toes,
stopping almost in my tracks, and side-
stepped. The rattler sailed harmlessly
over me. Before it had a chance to re-
coil, I had pounced upon it and broken
its back. Master never knew what a
narrow escape he'd had. But would
that the snake had buried its fangs in
me! I-Iad I died then, I should have
died with the knowledge that I was
sacrificing myself for my human god. I
At the end of the month, that feeling
of melancholia began to'creep insidi-
ously upon me. Then one night after
Master had gone to bed, that demoniac
spell again swept over me. I have dim
recollections of miles upon miles of
dark woods, of being gradually trans-
formed into a raging demon, of killing,
killing, killing. And again I reached
For a time after this there was no
dog more solicitous over the welfare of
his sheep than was I. In a couple of
weeks, however, Master noticed that I
was growing short-tempered with my
charges, once I even ran them. For
this offense he reprimanded me, and
that night there was a gory massacre
among a certain owner's sheep some
live miles away.
Naturally, the reputation of this
mysterious killer had spread among
all the sheep men. Indications seemed
to point to the fact that the dog, if the
signs he left were dog's, was a rogue,
a wanderer, perhaps a member of some
One day Master called to me and
said, "Doc, some dog must have gone
wrong. You'll have to keep your eye
peeled, old boy. Iim not afraid,
though. Any dog that starts mixing
in with you will certainly come out
second best. XVe'll take care of him."
I wagged my tail and registered a
vow to make good. I was through
with leading this double life. Yet,
once more, without warning, the spell
seized me. That night I came to my
senses with teeth locked tight in an old
rami's neck. Imagine my horror when
I realized not only that I had no con-
trol over the spell, but also that I had
had no warning as to when the fright-
ful transformation would take place.
It would now come, it seemed, with-
out apparent cause.
Every few days would see some new
outbreak. Sometimes a herdsman,
awakened by the dying shriek of his
dog, would takeia shot at a shadow
darting among the trees, but the
demon-dog seemed to bear a charmed
Master was very proud of me. I-Ie
was always boasting that he had ever
said I was the best sheep dog in the
business, and present circumstances
proved it. Neither he nor the men near
him ever lost any sheep. If this had
been said about any other dog, it would
have looked bad for that dog, but for
me it was simply added evidence of
But this couldn't keep up forever.
On the fatal moonlit night, Master vis-
ited some rancher's house for a mass
meeting which had been called to dis-
cuss ways and means of getting rid of
the canine murderer. Several hours
after he had gone, the mad fit struck
me again, and over the ridge I tore,
bound for a certain ranch live miles
away. I reached there about ten, and,
after silencing the dog, was soon
slaughtering to that fiend's content.
But what was that? Beginning with a
low moan, a whine rose in volume until
it became a full cry. The collie I
thought I'd silenced was voicing his
dying shriek. There were shouts in the
house. The back door slammed. VVell,
there was time, thought demon I, to
sink my teeth in this ewe's throat and
still get away. After adding this one
more carcass to the bleeding herd
already covering the ground, I cleared
the fence with a single bound. Around
the barn I tore, straight into a line of
men. VVith a low growl I sprang for
the foremost human throat.
The moon shone full on the poor
victim's face. Midway in my leap, I
caught a full view of his features. The
look of mingled horror, agony, and re-
proach on Master's face is graven in-
delibly upon my brain. My jaws
crunched on the yielding Hesh involun-
tarily. 'lloo late my madness left me.
"Doc, no, Hyde," Master choked
enigmatically as he fell, the blood gush-
ing from his throat in a crimson stream.
Now in this cave I await the coming
of Death, the Liberator. By Master's
side I was shot down. I-Iours later,
after they had carried the corpse into
the house leaving me for dead, I crept
up here, riddled with bullets, that awful
picture constantly before me. Dear
Master, my only prayer as all grows
dim is that where you are you will for-
get me as you last saw me. Remember
me only as your "Doc". If that hide-
ous picture would only leave me, if-
IVhy, Master, it's changed. Witli only
a minute more of life, I see you as you
used to be, a pal, a comrade, a Master.
Now your face is infinitely sweeter
than ever I saw it on earth. Did you
whistle. Master? Yes, I'm coming.

It conveys what far away treasure
From what unknown shore?
Wfhere all bliss and hopes end,

Showering char! char! char!
Or with melancholy sounds of gru! gru!
And the bright rays of sunshine and glory
Flash upon the face through vistas of heaven.

Whose treasures of smiles and tears await me?
I know not in what tune the chords of the harp will
And what musical note will be sung.

to and fro, and loud groans resounded
from the depths. The experience

were seized with abject terrorg every

On that beautiful morning, then,
with minds clouded on one hand by
thoughts of such horrible tales, on the
other by fears of the results of injus-
tice, john, his dog, and I, as outlaws,
were forced into the region of terror.
Down, down we hurried, scrambling
and slipping over rocks and through
brush, until at last we came to a small
open nook surrounded by a tall dense
woods. The clearing was a perfect
circle about forty feet in diameter. Its
floor was covered with a short, thick
turf which dished evenly from the
wooded part down to the center, the
depression being about two feet deep.
In the center there gushed noiselessly
forth a crystal fountain rising to a
height of about four feet where it
spread and fell into a receptacle of
sparkling crystals, like myriads of dia-
monds circumscribed about its foot.
The receptacle was bordered by the
brilliant green turf.
XVe turned about in admiration of
the scene, but where was the place we
had entered? Nowhere was there a
break in the wooded wall-no, not even
a crevice through which one could pass.
NVere we trapped by the demon of the
chasm? Not a leaf nor a blade of grass
was in motion. A dumb silence hung
over the scene. It was the hrst time
we had noticed it. XVe shook with

After the momentary effect of the
scene had worn off, we looked about
for further adventure. To our right,
we noticed a narrow path leading along
a rocky ledge. winding downward un-
til it passed from sight behind a great
cliff. XX'ithout a word of question, we
forced our' way with dilliculty along
the path which became narrower and
narrower until it seemed that we could
go no farther. Still we pushed on.
Suddenly all was darkness. The
cause we could not discern. lVe
turned to retrace our steps to the head
of the precipiceg but lo! the path was
gone! There were but two possible
modes of procedure: we might give

on. XVe decided on the latter. Slowly
we worked our way along the ever-nar-
rowing trail, holding ourselves from
falling into the unknown by clutching
the crevices of the rocks with our hn-
gers. XVe crawled along in this manner
for a time that seemed like days and
weeks. I-low far we had traveled we
could not tell, but taking into consider-
ation our snail-like pace, it could not
have been far.
The effort exerted in maneuvering
thus was extremely strenuous. VVe
were fatigued, we were weak, we had
no strength to go further, we had no
place to rest. My right hand slipped
from its hold. 'Weakly I struggled to
regain it. It was useless. I was on

"God only knows," I replied, feeling
about to ascertain something of my
position. I was on solid earth. I re-
mained quiet for a time, wondering
what was to happen next. A feeling of
hunger had begun to annoy meg I was
also burning with thirst. Surely with-
out food and water we should perish
soon. Food and water, where were
such necessities to be found in such a
forsaken place as this?
IVe remained quiet. All the while
our minds were tortured by uncer-
tainty. Then, of a sudden, as if one
had stepped from a dark room into a
brilliant hall, all was daylight again.
As soon as my eyes became used to the
light, I looked about. Above there
towered a butting granite '-cliff.
Stretching from the bottom of the wall
was a level stretch covered with many
beautiful trees. beneath which 'grew
rank grasses and fragrant flowers blos-
somed everywhere. The plain extend-
ed to the left for a distance of about
one mile where it rose into a high
mountain range. To the right, about
ten feet away, the plain broke and sank
down to what seemed a fathomless
depth. The narrow rocky path by
which we had come and from which
we had fallen, ended just a few feet
above us. It stretched upward around
a curve in the cliff where it passed
from sight. I-Iow did we ever get over
s-uch a trail? If we had fallen but a
second before, where would we have
gone? Surely, Providence had not en-
tirely forgotten us. Such were the
thoughts emerging from our dazed
After surveying the country about
us, carefully, we picked ourselves up
and walked a little distance among the
trees. Wfhat a strange country it was!
The trees were laden with ripe fruits
of every description, graceful, feathery
grasses waved, and many colored flow-
ers noddedg birds sang and hopped
about in the branches. The presence
of all these things in the same season
of the year could not be accounted for.
We filled ourselves with the fruit and
quenched our thirsts from a cool, clear
brook that rambled through the grove.
By the sun, it was yet early forenoon.
It was even earlier than when we had
noticed the sun before from the edge of
the precipice. Surely a day must have
passed since then. I wondered if night
and morning came on so suddenly as
it appeared to have come when we had
been left in darkness and then later
were again in light.
All day John and I wandered aim-
lessly through this magnificent grove,
admiring the beauty and occasionally
eating the fruit. Late in the afternoon
we came to the far edge of the forest.
Before us ran a stream of water, the
width of which was about one thousand
feet. Cn the far side of it a narrow
plain, covered with more wonderful
grass, rose abruptly into a rocky and
wooded mountain range which paral-
leled the stream. It was the range we
had viewed from the cliff. In the edge
of the water, beside the sloping shore,
there stretched a hollow log carved out
by nature to resemble a boat. Wfhile
in this strange land, we had not once
seen any signs of life save that of a few
harmless birds. However, for safety,
we waded out to the hollow log and
stretched our tired bodies in its bottom
to rest for the night. Sleep S0011 over-
took me, and I dreamed that we were
in the magic garden of Aladdin."
lVhen the hrst rays of the great sun
reached over these realms once more,
awakening me from sleep, I looked up
into a clear blue sky. John peacefully
snored in the other end of the boat.
There was no hurry, so, being very
comfortable, I remained for some time
in my reclining position. Suddenly,
we were aroused by a harsh jolt that
brought us to our senses. Wfhat a de-
plorable situation we were in! Surely
the end was at hand. Our boat had en-
tered some terrible rapids. It had
struck a great rock and there balanced
for a brief moment. The water lashed
itself into foam against the rocks and
roared loudly as it tore through their
hollow caverns. How had our boat got
loose from its resting place on the
shore by the grove? Surely the patron
demon of the region had set a trap for
us, and we had fallen into it. All about
us were raging rapids. No place of
refuge was possible.
Slowly the hollow log in which We
were cast-aways loosened from its
mooring in the rocks and shot onward
with the Hood. In and out among
caverns of watery waste we passed,
jolting and twisting about. Any mo-
ment we should be wrecked and cast
helpless in the jaws of the fearful tor-
Gradually the rapids gave way to
a swift smooth stream. Oh !. an in-
stant of relief. But behold, in front,
the most terrible danger of all awaited
us. W'e were stricken with horror. I
closed my eyes, set my teeth, and
waited. On we rushed to the edge of a
great cataract where the water leaped
into apparent eternity. I opened my
eyes. VVe were on the very edge of
the fall. Into space leaped the boat-
into a pitchy darkness! Down, down,
down we fell, gaining in speed every
second. Air whistled loudly past us
as we whirled ever downward and
still downward in this nerve-racking
plunge. How long should we continue
to fall in this manner? VVhat would
be the end?
The air suddenly ceased to whistle
by us. Our fall was being checked.
lNith a mighty force the bottom of the
boat pushed up against us. The whole
contrivance now moved upward in a
flight similar to the one we had just
taken downward. It continued thus for
some time. At last we came to a halt.
Could it be that we were hanging in
mid-air? I reached my hand over the
edge of the boat and felt below. I
felt water. We were floating in water.
"Listen," John whispered. From
our right came a sound as of some-
thing swimming toward us. It arrived
at the side of our boat. A bark proved
that it was Top. VVhere did he come
from? XVherc had he been? It was
yet extremely dark. John reached his
hand out. Top swam to it and was
lifted into the boat.
At this instant we began to move
forward. The boat continued in mo-
tion for a time that seemed half a night.
Then it drifted upon a low, sloping
shore and stopped. Climbing out, we
walked to the dry shore where we sat
facing the direction from which we had
come. Far out there appeared faint
colors as of the sun just rising from
behind the earth. V76 watched in
silence. Slowly and steadily the colors
increased until once more the great
sun shone upon us. The boat was
gone. XVe looked about us. Were our
eyes deceiving us? No, we were truly
standing by the camp on the shore of
the lake that bordered "Mysterious

Early evening it was, evening of a
warm, almost stifling day. I was
seated on the veranda in an attitude of
utter indolence, trying to escape the
weather's tortures with the aid of a
palm leaf fan. which looked rather the
worse for the wear I had so strenuously
given it. At any rate, I was comfor-

moment, the piercing ring of the tele-
phone sounded in my much annoyed
ears. No one was downstairs: there-
fore, I was obliged to answer it.
A moment later, I was standing at
the phone, eagerly accepting the kind
invitation of the Gradys for a drive.
As I stood there, some specks of dirt
flew in through the window and re-
posed affectionately upon my nose. I
visualized cool, quiet, dustless country
roads, fresh green trees, little burbling
brooks g you know, all the lovely things

Immediately upon accepting this de-
lightful invitation, I was told to present
myself at the Grady mansion at seven-
thirty. This might have surprised
some people, but 11ot me. It is one of
the Gradys' delightful ways to treat
their guests as one of themselves.
They are Irish, you know, and one of
the most charmingly unconventional
families I have ever met.
It was with pleased anticipation, not
unmingled with a thrill of excitement,
that I looked forward to an evening in
their company. I knew that not a mo-
ment would pass in which I would feel
bored or dull. I recalled the last time
I had been with them on a picnic. It
was on that occasion that we came
within three inches of landing i11 the

at that moment we seemed rooted to
the spot, I was doubtful as to whether
we should ever start.
It was fully five minutes before we
moved. During that time all the small
children for blocks around had congre-

ing audible remarks about us, inter-
spersed with kind oiTers to "run and

forward with a peculiar, jerky motion,
accompanied by a series of loud ex-
plosions, each of which waked a bark
from Betsy and shriek from the chil-
dren. The effect of all this noise was
tremendous, it rivaled any hreworks
display I have ever seen.
In a sort of undulating manner we
advanced for half a block with the
young' populace of the neighborhood
hot on our tracks. Then, after one or
two particularly aggressive bounds, we
stopped dead. Not for long, however.
Wlith incredible rapidity we suddenly
shot backwards, smartly rounded a
corner on two wheels, and lo! we were
For the first few seconds, it was a
trifle disconcerting to be traveling
backwards, and it must have looked
decidedly undignilied-as though we
were backing away from royalty, or
something like that. Iiut not until we
dashed with extreme speed down a
frightfully steep hill, did I feel alarmed.
My one prayer then was that there
should be no street car at the bottom.
As usual, my prayer was unanswered.
There was. My eyes closed in antici-
pation of the inevitable crash. All went
black before me. I held my breath.
Nothing whatever happened. I ven-
tured to open my eyes again. To my
surprise, we were streaking back up
the hill, only this time we were the
right way round.

Grady. "I knew it wouldn't take me a
minute. Lovely outg isn't it, Mr.
Birchard ?" I
I agreed dazedly.
This was but the first of a series of
unnerving incidents. For instance, one
time, emboldened by the comparative
peace of the moment, I volunteered a
few of the usual remarks about the
scenery. I was rewarded with a
thumping blow ,between the eyes. I
was soon to realize that I had been hit
with Mrs. Grady's hard straw hat. Of
course it was an accident, due to the
wind. In pained silence, I returned it
to her. Recklessly she let go the
wheel, and, after borrowing a hatpin
from Mary, replaced the hat at a most
After this, I was prepared for any
emergency. This was lucky as it was
not long before Mary's hat blew off.
Mrs. Grady returned the pin, and from
then on, whoever had the misfortune
to lose her hat, got the pin, while Mr.

catching, or receiving the missiles.

Vfhen the changing seasons of the year
Are putting forth their signs of hope,
And earth is mantling brown with green,

As busy birds the trees beguile,
It is a fitting time to dream
Of pleasant pools along life's stream

From pleasant trails to stony paths
That they may better find the pools,
Half concealed by trees and grass,
That, smiling, hold the joys of life.
Wlieii you have left these pleasant trails
To tread along life's main broad-way
And weary of an empty life,
VVauder adown the old by-way,
Here on the old familiar ground
Recall the memories of those days
Wfhen joy and happiness were found,
And life shone through an aureate haze.

Stocktoifs athletic, record for the
past year has been most impressive.
The state championships in basket ball,
swimming, and crew are held by the
Blue and XVhite "'llarzans." In basket
ball, the record of "thirteen straighty'
victories will probably stand unexcelled
for years. The S. H. S. swimmers are
considered the best in the west! VVhat
more could we wish for?
The individual honors go to Claude
Zent. His work in football, basket
ball, and swimming is recognized as
Although the other teams did not
win championships, the spirit among
the fellows has never died. In football,
even after the sub-league title had been
lost, the players came out every night
for practice. That is the stuff of which
real athletes are made. ,
Coaches Cave and Lenz deserve all
the appreciation possible for their
splendid work throughout the year.
Mr. Libhart and Mr. Pease should also
be commended for their assistance in
coaching the weight and second teams.
And, lastly, the loyal students who at-
tended the athletic contests and sup-
ported the teams even in defeat, should
be praised. Now let us turn to the
first page of our athletic history.
Although Stockton did not win the
league football championship, the 'Blue
and VVhite eleven had a fairly success-
ful year, winning live out of nine
games. However, a team is to be
judged, not entirely by the football
scores and games won, but by the spirit
shown. 'I'his is the Cave ments third
season only in American football, but
from the zeal displayed and the knowl-
edge gained by the players, S. H. S.
should certainly turn out a winning
team next year.
Nearly lifty to sixty football aspir-
ants turned out for the initial practice
of the year. Under Coach Cave and
Coach Lenz much new material was
developed. Ray Stiles, playing tackle,
was elected pilot for the season. Carl,
his brother, playing half, was elected
at the close of the season to succeed
him for 1923.
The popularity of football was
shown when, for the lirst time in the
history of the school, bleachers were
erected on the west side of the campus.
lt is planned to have seats for one
thousand more next year. The games
aroused the interest of the town peo-
ple, and next year should see some
Great efforts were made for the an-
nual "big game" with Sacramento here.
Our boys put up a splendid fight, but
coupled with our hard luck and their
stars, the Purple and Vtfhite won 20-7.
The largest crowd in years turned out
to see this "grid" contest.
Coach Lenz created the best back-
Iield in the northern part of the state,
and if the line had had as good coach-
ing, Stockton would have seen a win-

were: center-Zentg guards-Nelson,

Stockton, 33, Turlock, 0.
The Blue and Wfhite opened its sea-
son with a smashing victory over the
Turlock cantaloupers. Most ot our
touchdowns were the result of cris-
crosses and end runs. lid Dunne dis-
played his talent by smashing through
the Turlock line ten yards at a time.
Selma, 27g Stockton, 0.
Due to the fact that the regular
backfield did not arrive to start the
game, Stockton lost the second practice
game to the southerncrs.
Stanford Freshmen, 87 5 Stockton, 0.
This game consisted mostly of open
field running for Stanford. The Tar-
zans had no chance with the college
Woodland, 13g Stockton, 6.
Stockton lost the lirst league game
to VVoodland. The Blue and VVhite
had hard luck and lost by one touch-
Stockton, 353 Turlock, 7.
Turlock came to Stockton for this
game. A record-breaking crowd saw
the Turlock boys go down to defeat
for the second time this season.
Harvey Zinek and Lawrence Seifert
Sacramento, 20, Stockton, 7.
The "big'l game! About two thou-
sand fans came out to see the Purple

touch-downs. Stockton should have
The second team, under the guidance
of Nr. Pease, established a record of
which to be proud. The team won
four out of six games played and
scored 117 points to their opponents'
40. Walter VX'alsh coached them and
won the admiration of the players.
Those who played were: ends-Bass,
won, but she lost two glorious oppor-
tunities for touch-downs. Leon Des-
saussois made Stockton's only touch-
down on a thrilling end run. It was a
hard game to lose, for we lost our
chances for the C. I. F. crown, but We
will get it next year.
Stockton, 44, Oakland, 0.
Pete Lenz's warriors took revenge
on the bay city lads in the next game.
Our team resorted to open field plays
and forward passes, which almost re-
sulted in a lllarathon race for Stockton.
The visitors had two colored players
on their team, which made things look
dark for Gakland. This is probably the
cause of the S. lol. S. victory.
Stockton, 45, Alameda, 6.
Another bay team tried its luck on
the campus. They made one touch-
down on a 95-yard run, but that was
all. The Encinal city boys had no
show with the Tarzans. Carl Stiles
looked good in this fracas. The sec-
ond team also smeared the Sacramento
No. 2 team.
Sacramento, 39, Stockton, 0.
Thanksgiving Day marked the close
of the C. ll. F. football season at the
capitol city. The game was played in
a drizzling rain on a field of mud and
water, Several new swimmers were

For the past three years sectional
championships have been won, but
never before have the "Cave men" cap-
tured the state title. This year, after
winning twelve consecutive games, the
Blue and VVhite earned the right to
play for the state championship in the
South. Two years ago the locals had
a chance but were beaten in the final
game. Playing on a strange court, be-
fore a hostile crowd, and in a different
climate, the S. H. S. bucket men dem-
onstrated that they were the greatest
high school team in California when
they outelassed the speedy .-Xlhambra
quintet in the titular cage game of the
year. Their triumphant battle against
great odds won them the 1922 crown of
the C. I. F., they being the fifth team
in California to win the circle of honor.
Lest we forget, the score of 22-20 in
favor of Stockton, terminated one of
the greatest games of basket ball

Stockton, 145 Lodi, 19.
This was not a true second-team
game. as several Hvarsityl' men played
on the team and proceeded to let Lodi
win the game.
Stockton, 135 Lodi, 7.
XYith the regular line-up, the second
team defeated the Lodi varsity. This
game ended a successful football sea-
son for the second team.
To Coach Lenz goes the honor and
the glory of being recognized as a great
basket ball coach, just as he demon-
strated himself a great swimming
coach with a state championship
aquatic team last year.
Next to Lenz, the greatest credit for
the success of the champion 'llarzans
goes to Captain Claude Zent, a proven
leader of conquerors. Prudent in coun-
cil, sagacious in leadership, fearless and
crafty in battle, 'fSlivers" has been a
glorious chieftain of champions.
Captain Zent was assisted by a won-
derful all-round team which gave him
whole-hearted support through the en-
tire season. 'l'he success of the Tar-
zans this year was not due to any one
particular star, but to the consistent
team-work of every player. Every
man did his part the best he knew how
and the result was-the championship!
'llhe second string Illlfll provided the
reserve strength which was essential
to victory. The value of Gavigan,
Christensen, Souza, and George was
more than once demonstrated.
Few people understand or realize
what a state championship means.
Out of over live hundred schools in
California, Stockton emerged victori-
ous and without a single defeat. They
averaged thirty-eight points a game to
their opponents' eighteen. No school
could wish a record more impressive.
Stockton, 56g Jackson, 16.
Stockton opened the basket ball sea-
son by sweeping the mountaineers off
their feet with an avalanche of baskets.

Stockton, 42, Rio Vista, 18.
Rio Vista was the fourth victim to
fall before the Blue and VVhite ma-
chine. The Rio Vistans had a perfect
defense, but they could not hold Pat-
ten and Hussey. A record-breaking
crowd saw this game.
Stockton, 39, Woodland, 9.
Wcnocllaiid was held to the lowest
score of the season. The guarding of
Harvey Zinek was a feature: This was
the first C. I. F. game of the season.
Stockton, 28, Sacramento, 22.
Stockton journeyed to the capitol
city for the next C. I. F. fracas. Sev-
eral players had the "flu", but the sec-
ond team filled out the vacancies. This
proved to be the most crucial game of
Stockton, 35g Lodi, 20.
The annual "big game" with Lodi
proved disastrous for the "grape pick-
ers". They had a good team, but at
their best could not hope to beat Stock-
ton. The weight teams also kept up
their winning streak.
Stockton, 38g Woodland, 19.
VVoodland saw their chances for the
C. I. F. go when they dropped their
second game with Stockton. The per-
formance of the locals had begun to
attract attention around the bay.
Stockton, 35g Sacramento, 26.
Stockton won the sub-league honors
by carrying off the last sub-league
game. The weight teams, as usual,
won their tilts.
Stockton, 51g Lincoln, 16.
Lincoln furnished the opposition for
the first championship game. They
were heralded as wonders, but they
couldn't compete with our heavier
team. Bill Gagen starred at forward.
Stockton, 425 Red Bluhf, 17.
One of the largest crowds in the his-
tory of S. H. S. saw Stockton win the
northern championship from Red Bluff.
The game was fast and furious, but the
best team won. Sam Milligan played a

third quarter that completely dazed the

scoring, and within three minutes Fif-
teen points had been chalked up. The

The State Championship game! The
Tarzans journeyed to Los Angeles and
earned the name of the fastest high
school team in California. At the end
of the game the score was tied, 18-18.
Five minutes extra was allowed. Bill
Gagen dropped one in from the center,
and the "Moors" immediately tied the
count. In the last minute Claude Zent
rang a pretty one from the side, and the
title was won! Thus ended the basket
ball history of the greatest team of the
year in California.
This year's second basket ball team
leaves an excellent record, having won
three and lost two games, and, consid-
ering that the local squad played only
the first teams of the surrounding
schools, the showing they made was
one of which to be proud. Five mem-
bers of the second team played in
enough varsity league games to win
Block S's, and also received gold bas-
ket ball fobs the same as the members
of the 1922 state championship team.
The second team will largely compose
the "varsity" next year, and Coach
Though not so successful as the
"bantams," the S. H. S. 130 pounclers
had a fairly successful season in 1921-
22. They tied Vffoodland for the league
championship and lost out in the play-
off by one point. on account of the
absence of several star players.
These lightweight basket men lacked
the finesse and the team work of the
"bantams", but there was no lack of the
"old Blue and XN'hite" fighting spirit,
and every game was fought to the last

play. Two of the games were forced
into extra periods.
Sahargun was the lighting center
and captain of the squad and proved to
be one of the rarely found "born lead-
ers." Libhart starred at standing
guard and with many a mighty leap
broke up the opponents' plays. Vieira
and Giottonini alternated at running
guard and played the game at top
speed at all times. The forwards were
Trivelpiece, Eperson. and Lamasney.
Trivelpiece was exceptionally good at
one-hand shots, and Eperson Zllld
Lamasney were also there with their
well-known eagle eyes.

The title of undefeated champions
can be well claimed by the 120 pound
team, The "little '11arzans" went
through the whole season without a
defeat, outclassing teams much heavier,
heavy scorer of the squad, making any-
where from 7 to 19 points per game.
"Bud" Funk and Craig also aided Val-
pey in giving the score-keeper's hand
a cramp and added much fight to the
and, therefore, have all the right in the
world to their claim to the state cham-
pionship. They won the championship
of two northern leagues, but, as the
other schools closed their weight team
season earlier, they could go no further.
The small champions had some of the
best team work seen in Stockton for
many years and are considered by some
to rank almost in the same class as the
state championship "varsity."
"Chick" Kenyon was the captain and
star running guard. Mallory broke up
play after play at standing guard. Val-

Boxing and Wrestling Club
This year marked the beginning of a
boxing and wrestling club, a new or-
ganization in S. H. S. The purpose of
this club was not to create prize-fight-
ers, but to instruct every member in
the art of self-defense.
A large group attended from the
first, and as a result several good box-
ers and mat men were developed. Next
year an extensive course has been
planned by Coach Cave, and a banner
year is anticipated. New gloves and
punching bags will also be bought for
the growing pugilists.
Those who have taken an active part
in the affairs of the club are: Clayton
Hurd, Gaston Potenti, Richard Thom-
as, Gardner Campbell, Frank Rule,
Carroll Cole, Henry Coffin, Paul Bos-
ton, Edward Smith, Charles Cima,
George Pennebaker, George Diffen-
derfer, and Kenneth Culver.
Outside of a few black eyes, bloody
noses. "cauliflower" ears, ripped gloves,
and numerous black and blue spots, the
pugilistic club has had a peaceful
career thus far.
At the first meeting, Henry Coffin
was elected president by unanimous
vote, and Richard Thomas, vice-presi-
dent. Boxing and wrestling instruc-
tions were given by Coach Cave and
by some of the more experienced stu-
A few outside bouts and wrestling
matches were held for exhibition pur-
poses. Coffin and Potenti put on a fast
bout at Gak Park on G. A. R. Day as
part of the afternoon entertainment.
Richard Thomas and Clayton Hurd
also gave an exhibition bout to fill a
program at the Y. M. C. A.
From an obscure beginning some
six years ago, tennis has had as its
transition through a stage of dormaney
and revival until today we have some
one hundred seventy-five active tennis
Tennis had its birth in Stockton
High School in 1916, due mainly to the
efforts of Mr. W. C. Allen and Mr.
Amos Elliot. A11 active season fol-
lowed, during which inter-class play
and tournament competition were in-
augurated. In the last few years this
sport has developed rapidly, partly be-
cause of the greatly enlarged national
interest taken in the game, and partly
because of the interest taken in our
players by Mr. F. Graham Tollit.
Last year marked the hrst interscho-
lastic competition for Stockton High
School, a match between Sacramento
and Stockton. "The Senators", due to
their superior knowledge and experi-
ence in the finer points of the game,
whitewashed our men. This year we
have developed several new players,
and, all in all, the prospects of taking
the San Joaquin Valley championship
from Madera are excellent. As the
annual goes to press, we are in receipt
of communications seeking matches
from Oakland Technical and Lowell
The court facilities at our high
school are extremely poor. We have
only three courts at present, and these
three are in very bad condition. In
the near future, however, these courts
are to be resurfaced and two new ones
built, which together with the new
municipal courts at Oak Park, ought
to prove an additional stimulus to the
Interclass tennis followed by the
doubles and singles championships of
the high school are among the features
scheduled for the near future.
Our tennis club this year has reached
the largest proportions in its history,
about fifty members in all, embracing
practically as many girls as boys. The
officers elected for this year were:
Tom Quinn, president, VVilliam Gagen,
vice-president, and George Penne-
baker, secretary and treasurer.
Up to May, uncertain weather con-
ditions have hampered practice and
progress, but one of the most success-
ful ears ever ex erienced in this
branch of sport is antici ated for the
last week of the school year.
Due to the bad weather, track prac-
tice did not get under way until two
weeks before our first meeting, and, as
a result, the track record of 1922 is not
so impressive as it should be. For
some reason or another training for
track was not taken so seriously as for
other sports. Had this been done,
Stockton would doubtless have hung
up a good record.
But even with the short training, the
results were gratifying. Stockton came
out hrst in the county track and field
meet, winning both the unlimited and
the l2O-pound events. The three cups
offered were also won.
Ripon was the only other school to
fall before the local tracksters. The
Blue and VV'hite came fourth in the
northern section meet at Biggs. But
in the state meet held here May 6.
S. H. S. was unable to place.
Although the 1922 track season was
not a complete success, it brought out
new material which makes Stockton's
1923 track prospects look exceedingly
bright. Training will be held through
the winter months next year, and it will
be a safe bet that Stockton will be rep-
resented strongly at the next state

Several of Stockton's cinder stars
were not present at this meet, or the
score would have been much closer.
The locals won only three iirsts, the
100 by Sloan: high hurdles, by XVag-

55M points, Ripon came second with
55 points, and Lodi third with ZSM.
The Blue and VN-'hite won all three cups
oijfered. The 120-pound events were
nearly all taken by Stockton athletes.
"Chuck" Kenyon starred by taking the
220, broad jump, and second in the 100
with a total of thirteen points.
Stockton, 445 Sacramento, 69
This meet was disastrous for Stock-
ton. Sacramento won tive iirsts against
Stockton's tive. The loss of the relay
and the inability of the sprinters to
place were the main reasons for our
loss. Stockton's victories were in the
discus, shot put, high jump, high hur-
dles, and half mile. VVaggoner and
Hardeman, with seven points each, and
Krenz and German, with six points
apiece, were the high scorers.
C. I. F. at Biggs
In the northern section meet at

qualified for the state meet. Sacra-
mento took first and Stockton, fourth.

State Meet at Stockton
For the first time in the history of
Stockton, the state C. 1. F. meet was
held here at Agricultural Park on May
6. Representatives from forty-seven
high schools composed the entries.
Huntington Beach won the meet
with sixteen points, Manual Arts of
Los Angeles came second with twelve,
and Bakersfield, third with eleven
"Bud" Hauser, the shining star of
Oxnard High, broke two state records
and one world mark in the discus and
shot put. Nash of H. B. also set a new
state record in the broad jump when
he jumped 22 feet 6 inches.
Stockton failed to place in this meet.
Seifert placed third in his heat in the
low hurdles but turned his ankle in
doing so. This accident kept him out
of the finals. Krenz would have placed
second or third in the discus but for the
fact that his discus' was thrown out,
and he was forced to use a new one as
a result failing to qualify.
Stockton High's 1922 baseball team
was not so successful this year as last.
The only, league game the Tarzans won
was with Woodlancl.
The main weakness of this year's
team was in the pitching staff. The
infield also made their errors at critical
moments, and consequently our team
always lost. If a good pitcher can be
secured next year, the Tarzans should
have great success in putting a winning
team on the field.
We shall have Craig, Hoey, Bava,
and Gagen for the infield and Ernie
George, Eproson and Souza for the
outfield. Bava may develop into a
pitcher, but that remains to be seen.
Haack and Goldston should also im-

Stockton High now holds the record
of possessing the greatest swimming
team in the state of California. Last
year at Venice, Stockton demonstrated
that she could swim as well as she
could play basket ball when she de-
feated the crack Venice High School
team thus winning the state cup. Pos-
sibly no other inland town has a team
approaching Stockton's. But only by
practicing faithfully every night and
with untiring effort, the swimming
squad attained such an honor. Even
though unheard and unsung by most
of the school, the squad never became
downhearted. Coach Lenz and his
team deserve the highest praise pos-
sible for their wonderful work.
This year with practically the same
team, another state title is anticipated.
The swimmers are even better, and the
chances are exceedingly bright. At the
time the annual went to press, only
two meets had been run off.
The season started this year with the
annual interclass swim. "Reggie"
Goldwater, swimming for the post
graduates, won the meet almost single-
handed, winning 'five firsts and two
seconds. The annual meet with Stan-
ford was called off so that Stockton
did not get a chance at the collegians.
The combined squad got their iirst
opposition May 5, at the Olympic
Baths, against the Lick VVilmerding
school of San Francisco. A close
Score was expected, but Stockton com-
pletely overwhelmed the visitors by a
the 100 yard breast-stroke record last
year at Venice, and Reginald Gold-
water has also held several records.
The 130 pound team was organized
this year, and several fast weight men
were developed. The members show
excellent material for the unlimited
squad next year. Those swimming in
the weight division are: Kenyon, 50
65-20 score. San Franciscans won only
two firsts, the 220 and the 440. Gold-
water, as usual, won the 50 and 100
yards. Tumelty and Zent won their
events without much trouble. A large
crowd of rooters were out to see the
meet, and for the first time, money was
cleared from the admissions.
Several records are held by the local
members. Claude Zent holds the
record for the state in the 100 yard
back-stroke, Reginald Tumelty broke
yards and 150 yards, Funk, 50 yards,
Stevens, 150 yards, Jones, 150 yards,
Burke, 50 yards and 150 yards.
The unlimited squad consists of:
100 yards-Goldwater, McMurray, Pat-
ten: 50 yards-Goldwater, Zent, Pat-

Stockton has always boasted of a
good crew, and in the past live races
the Blue and VVhite have triumphed
four times at Lake Merritt in Oakland.
The tirst S. H. S. crew went to Oak-
land in 1917 and was beaten by Uni-
versity High, but outraced three other
schools, Fremont, Oakland, and Tech-
nical. In 1918 the crew beat "Tech"
by tive boat-lengths. ln 1919 the
Stockton rowers lost by one-half boat-
The 1920 crew also won and got for
one year the silver cup offered by
the Oakland Playground Commission.
Last year's crew won the cup a second
time, and, with a victory this year, the
trophy will become the possession of
Wfhen crew practice started at Yo-
semite Lake the last of April, nearly
two crews turned out. Practice was
begun immediately, and every evening
the crews rowed down to the dredger
At the time the annual went to press,
the race at Lake Merritt had not been
run off. This year's crew hadpracti-
cally all last year's rowers and was
conceded to be the best ever, and a vic-
tory was practically certain. The race
is run over a half-mile course on Lake
Merritt. Fremont, Oakland, Tech,
University High, and Stockton are the
competitors this year.
Those who were out for crew are:
Stiles, Clemenson, Spurr, Miller, Bos-
ton, Dyer, Dehlartini, Crowell, Trom-
betta, Rule, Gavigan, Haight, Jasper,
Hodgkins, Smith, Comfort, Driscoll,
Sloan, and Cole-pilotsg Archer and

elected captain at the start of the sea-
son and Arthur Bass, manager.
