Then he has debated successfully and won chief honors for thc school in an oratorical contest. And, with all this and more, HT. B.

Nearly everybody in the school loves her, and she has made a success of her positions: such as, president oi the French Club, vice-president tor both her junior and senior classes. and secretary of this year's Student Con- trol Cnmniittee. "'l'0rny" says that she expects to go to work after she Finishes sehool4just what work seems to he rather vague, but we predict that shc will have an interesting career, whatever she does. .RDON XVALLACE, Treasurer llid you ever in your life sue such a little fellow with so many bright ideas?

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. ANNIE ASHLIZX 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, and listen. everyone -sh-Z she wou't tell what she's going to do after she lcavts S. ll. S. "Pat" is one with 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. 13 Seniors NEIL AUSTlN PEA JAM ELB AGN MAR "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. RL BAKER 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. know how she is going to waste time until then, ES BERTHOLF HJll11l'l'llG!!-in greatest claim to fame was his purple "cords", Other notable characteristics of the said "Jimmie" were his amiable disposition. personality, and selt' admitted "good looks". llc did not take part in athletics but spent his spare time in developing' the often lacking organ, commonly referred to as the brain. Last but not the well known least, fric-nfl t'.limmie" was at "mean stepper" on the also well known dance tloor. ERT BIDXVELL Across is Elbert Bidwell, better known as "lliddy." lt' seems unnatural not to see him fretting over his studies or his banjo. "lliddy"'l1as taken an active interest in music during his stay in S. H. S., having played in the . . " 2 z ' 'X ' . ore.', llc is just his jokes in this as has, also, the for the "Big S his studies after not yet decided. band and oichestr 1, ind sung in Pinaf as witty as his nickname suggests, and year's G. and T. have proven this fact, stunt that he planned for his adviser Circus." "Tliddy" expects to continue leaving S. ll. S., but just where. he has ES BORERG 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! IE BOREN "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. PAUL BOSTON "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 Trvicles, though, when he becomes an M. D. at Los - nge es. 14 "' - .1 ' if Seniors OZ RO BUCKMAN i'Ozzie', is very tall and manly! He's most business-like! You just ought to sec l1im work in an orchard. He surely knows what to do. And wouldn't you like to know what kind of experimenting he's going to do? Ask him! llaybe it's electrical. though, because he's planning on being an electrical engineer. LLOYD BURKE :'l'oidie" sang in "Pinafore", in which he was ahlc to 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"! B IZSSI li BURTON ltcssit-'s name fits her perfectly-she is so very quiet and hashful. In fact, a little hird says that she spends a good deal of hcr time "hoping a man isn't looking at her" while she waits on the corner for Alice. But even so, llcssie is a wonderful cook, and licr candy-Oh, man, it's too heavenly for expression! lt seems kind of too had for her to prepare at the San Jose Teaeher's College to sprout the young idea, when she might he making "goodies" for some of us poor mortals. RO B ERTA l3'USl-I 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." 2, .ETA CA RLI N 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 frmd of both swimming and tennis. VVell, "Kat",'don't let lileta eat too much rich food at Normal because you know her ambition is not to get fat. lfl ELIEN C.-XRLIN "My ambition is to dance my way into the heart of a rich haelielorf' "Shrimp" informed us with decided seri- 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. 15 Seniors ROBERT CARR ELM 'WVQII--all right." XYe all know just what mood "Hob" is in hy the length of time he leaves between the "well" and thc "all right." lle has had leading parts in ten S. H. S. dramas to his credit, won the G. A, R. prize in 1921 for the hest oration, was a "four-minute speaks-r" for the Red Cross, long term editor of thc 1921-1922 weekly and annual C, X T., niemher of a winning dehat- ing tt-am. and earned thirty points one quarter in the Honor Scholarship Society. licsidcs all this. Bob cami: in on the linals of thc 1921 Shakespearean Contest, the girst time any one from Stockton had accomplished the eat. ER CARROLL 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. EMILE CROSS "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 ORA 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. CUTTS 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?" 16 Seniors VVILMA DAVEY 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." PERCY DOLAN 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! GARDINER DUFF KEN CHA 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. NETH DURAND 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. ALFRED FISHER A little red Ford bug, a big how-dy-do smile, and he himself,Tallbgo to ggakef'Al" a great Ifavtiritr? especially among tie oys. iouting out over iis our toot in the band, his success in "The Pirates ot Penzance," "The Admirable Crichtonf' and "Pinafore," is the fact that he has never had below a "Z" in any subject.

SCOTT FORD "Scotty's an awful nice fellow!" Xlfoniler who said that? Yes, he's not only nice hut amhitious, too, for he wants to he a tlcntist. lJon't you think Scotty miule a cute I sailor in Pinafore?

LEO FOSTER lla! lieholcl Captain Corcoran of the "H. Xl. S. Pina- fore". Anil he was a sailor before he became captain. Did you see him in the "Pirates of Penzance" anfl in the ".-Xrlniirahle Crichton," thc "VVork llouse XVarrl."-and just ooillcs of other dramatic productions? Hc's planning to gn to the l'niversity of Nevada. and we all wonder if he will he an actor some clay. 1, DOROTHY FRAZIER Dorothy is a very rcscrvctl, stutlious girl who intends to go to Teachers' College next year. .Xnrl she certainly should he a good instructor. because many have said, "You could search from one enrl of the worhl to the other anil not fintl a truer, hotter frienil than Dot."

She was vice-prcsiclent of the llonor Scholarship t Socicty an'l also a "pusher" for the Latin Cluh. "l'u'as she you saw in the Latin play, "The Departure of the Ilelvetiansf' "lo" likes sports anil that must be where she gets her complexion, hut she has chosen insitle work as her specialty. which is chemistry. IS Seniors M.-XRJOR1 ll GALLAGI-I ER Although "Margie" is a shy. bashful apwearing little person, she is extremely good-hearted and really very jolly when you break through her reserve. She expects to go to teachers' college after she leaves S. ll. S. and have a good time. llope you do, "Margie," LILY GANNON ' ABE ELM "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! GIRSH "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 Club, and one of the committee to select this year's senior play. ' ORENE GLASCOCK "Snooky" likes to keep house and cook, but she tells us she will be a "storing" after she leaves S. ll. S. She's so tiny and quiet that one can hardly believe she has ever thought of doing anything more rash than pushing a little when waiting in line at the library for a "Muz- zey. ILDITH GOULETTL 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. DOROTHY GRAEBE "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. t'Dot" is very fiery and argumentative, and 'fCl1ristie" says, "She's always bawling me out"! BERNICE GREY In basketry after a K'Pinafore" practice, "Shorty" and Emile just Figvlcd, giggled, and kept everyone else in a happy moot . dlernice is naturally a gentle, sweet, low- voiced, little person who is thrilled by canoeing, music. reading, and dancing, and, although she hasn't decided what she'll do after graduating, she surely will go forth with the good wishes of her classmates. 19 Q! Seniors MA R Y H A I. L "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! Thinks she'll be a "Steno "1 but upon further probing, sue objected on the ground! that questions were becoming "too personal". RUTH HANDS DOR Say, who is that good-looking girl over there with the pretty blonde bob? XVhy, that's Ruth, the "little boy" in f'Six Xafho Pass VVhile the Lentils Heil". She is pretty 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 if you can "get by" with it, "Ruthie" OTHY HARPER "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 makes that wave in her hair. Maybe she'll work in the City Health Otliee as she wants to, but-we-'ll see! LESLH3 HARPER KAT 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, and fishing Knot to mention a few more exciting onesl. HRYN BURNS HARRIS Talk about "ambish"! "Kataract" graduated from Stocktort lligh in three years, took eight subjects during her senior year, drew up the Constitution of the Honor Scholarship Society, is on the Nominating, Social, and Administrative Committees of that society, helped on various other committees, and is right there when any- one suggests a good time. It's almost impossible to get friend "liataraet" angry or even "peeved", and she is going to make a wonderful modern housewife!! HORACE H EACOCK Horace will have to do many great things to live up to such a classic name. lle has made a good start, for after a creditable four years spent in high school, he plans to enter U. C. and complete his life preparation. He has always been bright and conscientious in his work and could always be relied upon. Horace has also been noted for his gentlemanly and dignified manners, DAI SY HOLDEN "Just ask Thelma and Meldag they can tell you all the terrible things about nie." requested Daisy, but so much for the "terrlbleness". We can all judge from our experi- ence all the nice things to say, for "Da" surely is cute. Seems almost too bad that she will be I1 steno. when she loves aesthetic dancing and anything athletic so much--- hut. such is life. 20 QI!- Seniors XX'Il.Kl.X l'lUlllL-XRD xyllll. tluzn' tllrl XYiinl XVi-ru ywn vvcr in the lslncs or in :t tight plzicc?

That is the word, for "1zzie's" intentions are to be nothing more nor less than a real artist. "Yeah" las she would sayj, "1zzie" also is fond of aesthetic dancing and basket hall and is very apt at both. liesides, Ysahel is always a jolly good sport. BIQULN JONES llcula is one of the nicest girls in this school," several of the teachers have remarked. .Xlthongh she is studious. neat, and conscientious, she has a keen sense of humor, and has received straight "ones" in physical training. She is known by all her acquaintances as a very sweet, lovable girl. XVII- GEO BUR KELLING "llill" has been active in music during his high school career, having been a member of both the band and or- chestra for four years. "l!ill", whenever excited, yells ont. "Shoot the works!" fmeaning to blow up the school-!J. He is planning to attend llavis Farm, after leaving S. II. S. and is thinking about becoming a dizzy motorcycle racer and starting a sensation by racing the plow around the field with skiis on his motorcycle. RGE KROECKIQL S. li. S. has a "Rudolph Valentino," too. Yeswit's George. Don't you think he's good looking? .Xnd he's equally jolly and not one bit serious. Ile says his ambi- tion is to go on the stage tfrom here to Lodil or on the railroad Ccounting tiesj. Ile likes to play billiards and aims to be "real clevc-r" some day. LOIS LACY MAR A true lover of music is Lois Lacy, one of our class- mates who wishes to have music accompany her whole future. "Peggy", as she is called bv her friends, is a quiet and business-like girl. Always obliging and respect- ful towards her teachers and friends. she is most pleasing to her associates. XV4: hope that her life will be as serene and musical always as it' has been during her high school favs. GARET LAFF.-XTY 'f'1'ee Hee". "lla lla". "Ilo llo". Htliggle tiigglcn- --that is the way Margaret is greeted whenever she comes in sight, and it is all on account of her being blessed with such a lan hing last name. "'l'ee llee's" disposition surely matches her name, too. because one might hunt the whole world over for a more jolly. good-natnred per- son. Sh! She's telling people she is to be a school teacher, but "wc-'ll tell the world" she'd make a better negro minslrel! Tee Hee! PLACI DO LAGANA PA N Coming from the far away Philippines to a strange land to linish his last year in high school was the unusual experience of Placido Laganafian, a native Filipino. Senor Placido. during his brief stay in Stockton High School, has made many good and true friends among his .Xmeriean cousins. lle entered into the spirit of iartiei- pating in school activities and was a member of the east of 'f'l'he Turtle Dove" presented by the Drainatic VVork' shop class. 22 l 1 .Y i . i 1 I "5--11", Seniors FLOREN CE LARIQ Y Yes. Sir! She really likes to sic little puppy dogs on chickens to tantalize her frienflsg and, tiny though she lie, she is the chauffeur of her family. "Cricket" is to design dresses as a profession: so in a few years from now, the best dressed of us will be wearing some of the famous Larky creations. B A RT LAU lf PER EVA That boy with the line complexion and dark eyes is our good-looking llart, We almost lost him when he started to Davis. but he returned in time to graduate with us. Although Bart seems a little quiet, he is a great favorite with every one. He was president of the sophomore class, and besides being popular and good looking, llnrt has a keen mind. LEVV IS "She certainly is clever in getting what she wantsu, sweetly murmured at little friend of hers, and we agree! "Rusty" is always smiling whenever one sees her, and she says she enjoys dancing or playing cards. XVQ know she is a good sport to have near by. She expects to he a grzuumar school teacher. and she surely will make the youlngsters mind, for therc's force back of that beaming snn e. MARGA RET Ll ESY NVhen we asked Ruth about "Mig", she was able to let 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 minutel" taud incidentally, she's fond of contiding, "he's an awfully nice boy"l. Margaret is planning to be a music teacher. after a good training in the Conservatory of Music of the College of the Pacific, and one of her cahu and sweet disposition eouldn't help being successful in her chosen work. FRED LONIGAN R U T H EL Fred is another senior who is noted for his sturlions habits! Ile is always so busy preparing to become an engineer that he ean't find time for much of anything else. llut once in a while he manages to squeeze in a little basket ball. lle's planning on completing his edu- cation at Stanford L'niversity beginning next year. lfl LGNSDALE .Xs almost every one knows, "llluey" is not a "dig". though her marks seem to indicate it. lt shouldu't be a bit ditlieult for her to pass tcachers',"exams" and begin instructing the "lil' fellahs" in grammar school in a very 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. EN MCA FEE 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. 23 .TEX .- :J Seniors BERNICE Mc.-XRDLE 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. ALICE MCCAUGHY 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! DERSON MCGEE "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 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. ELLA MANUEL 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 entertainments, llorlor Scholarship Society, and commit- tec work for helping the poor at Christmas are a few of her "doings", VIVIAN MANUEL A girl who is greatly interested in the welfare of the girls about her is Vivian. She has lilled the oflice of president of the Associated Girl Students during the past year with great care and efFreiency. "Vi" with her sweet personality certainly makes a friend to be proud of. 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 Roll frequently. RUTH MATHEWVS Ruth takes things terribly seriously, but she's always laughing. That is a rather peculiar statemcntg. yet it is true. Music and talking are her favorite pastimes, and everybody remembers her in "l'iuat'ore", "The Pirates of Penzance". and the Glee Club. She also plays basket ball and belonged to the almost-forgotten girls' crew, four long years behind us. ' 24 Seniors JU Ll ET M ELTZ E R Juliet is quite famous at school as a violinist. and, as she intends to become a professional player. it islonly probable that she will become famous in larger circles than that at present. NVhatcver Juliet attempts to do, she does well. ln such sports as basket ball and dancing. she is in her glory. Nothing seems to trouble "Julie" deeply, for she always has a bright word for every one and everything. MADGE MENKING Vife know that Madge makes a sincere friend and a pleas- ant companion, for she has many friends. Just like her friend "Dot". Madge intends to be a Physical Training Instructor. She will attend U. C. to prepare for this work. Madge has been an excellent student and has done a good deal of welfare work for the school. ALl ENE MEYERS "Dutch" was on the committees for the senior girls' luncheon and dance given by the Honor Scholarship S0- ciety, of which she is a member. It is a wonder when "Dutch" was on thc former that the domestic science de- partments didn't misunderstand her when she said, "Hot doggie", ther favorite sayingj and place the plebeian fare on the luncheon menu. "Dutch" is planning to go to work after she leaves school tmaybeli. NELLIE MEYERS Nellie is just crazy about pretty clothes, and-sh-shf- Gene says she spends "oodles" of time hoping she can be a detective and discover dope fiends in Chinatown! Oh, Nellie! But she has the high ambition to be a real court reporter after she has finished a course at Mun- sen's in San Francisco. Good luck. "Nell," Maybe the writer of thy history will get a divorce from 'fMargie" and let you write it up. ANGEIJNE ll-l IGNACO "Angeline, will you please take the roll," is what the girls are accustomed to hearing Miss M. If. Howell say in her adviser section whenever she is exceptionally busy? Or, "Angie will you do this" or "that" or "something 9 else?" the girls are forever saying. and good old Angie is right there with a. smiling faec. She was on the student control, and in "l'inafore". has been a regular llonor Scholarship member. and is loved by all who know her. KATH ICRYN MILEY YVhen the historian was talking to her over the phone, putting her through the n-th degree in order to find something nice to write for you, Mr. Annual. she simply drowned her questioner with floods of laughter, and that seems to show her principal characteristic-julliness. But, Sh! she also told me she just 'flovcs to eat macaroni, swim, read, danccf' and she especially enjoys such social gatherings as tl-ic party to entertain the February "grads" this year at the famous luncheon. DELBERT MILLER "Del" just loves to talk, and argue-1 Say, better look out, every one, it' you decide to try him, because he has ,lf a great talent for argumentation. Of course every one knows of "Del's" famous poetry and expects to hear of an early publication of 'i'l'he Poems of D. Miller." 25 sf Seniors HUB ERT lXllNAHEN "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 everything put 'him in the Honor Societyg and he's going to take a "P, G." course with us next year. LORRAIN E M O RAN lllauy have been the times we have seen "lgnatz" go dashing around on horseback. She is one of the few H. S. students who indulge in this delightful pastime, and, take it from her, "It surely is fun!" just think, the medical profession will soon claim l1cr,becausc she's going to be a real M. D. "Skeezix" is possessed of a peculiar dry wit that makes everyone who knows her feel glad whenever it "pops out". HOLLIS MORRIS lfollis Morris is well liked by every one. Besides being a good sport, "Holly" is an "Al" student. VVhen l1e was younger he used to be the wittiest and most mischievous little boy imaginableg but certain influences. educational and otherwise, have made him, aside from his wit, quite a dignihed young man. .fn a little while we shall know "Holly" as a successful business man. ALBERT MURRAY Albert Murray is the little boy with the big voice, Hill" is best known for his quickness of action and mind. One proof of his quick action is that he won second place in the cross country run this year. It is doubtful whether shy little Al will follow "dad's" example and be a school superintendent or-? Al is very systematic. and what- ever he decides to do he will be sure to do well. W JOSEPHINE OREN i f Josephine Oren is the little fairy who keeps Mr. loms' olliee in apple pie order. All Jo's friends like her for her sweet and quiet disposition. She is always very neat about her appearance and her work. Jo has been a good student from start to finish. After she leaves school, she will spend her entire time in keeping some ofnce as efficiently as she has kept the night school oHice. HOXWA RD PA RKER Behold our silvery tongued oratorl For the past year he has been a member of Miss M. U. Howell's ublic speaking class and has become quite famous in pljaying upon and interpreting emotions. Although he is rather 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. ROBERT PATTERSON "Bob" is musically inclined! Not much need to say that. as every one knows it. file began 'rooting a trombone when he first started to school, and has been a musician ever since. llis hobby is playing at dances, and at every school party he has taken tne sliding part. Ile is also fond of making speeches. is a great favorite with the boys, and his popularity runs in all directions. Bob hasn't decided what he is going to do when he grows up. but says l1is ambition is to be a good musician. 26 Sen iors GEORGE PENNEBAKER 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 PERRY MOD 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 one of our best readers and received a prize in her fourth year English class for the best reading of a poem. As to "Ardie's" future, well, we bet she has her hope chest started ..... that's all we know. AYNE POOL "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 expects to take up interior decorating at college, but just where is still undecided. Ardroc says she's always hunt' ing trouble and teasing people, but she is very business- like when she is in class. DNVIGHT POTTER 'tBoots" has a weird imagination, as all know who have read any of his stories-especially the one about "me, my friend, an' me dog." llc is a member of the Admin- 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 affections. ELEANOR POWELL Z HEN GOL "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 Scholarship Society. "Ain't it Grand n' Glorious", she is continually raving, and she is happy as a lark when- ever she can sing and dance to her heart's content. RY PRESTON Henry Preston is a perfect old man, or, to be more exact, he was one in the senior play. "Pres" is an :Xl commercial student, has good dramatic ability, and is one of Stockton High's good all-round students. DIE RISK NVc poor shorties feel as though wc're going to get "aero- plane neck" when we converse with her-she looms so high above us! It was a pretty risky thing for Risky to ride bareback on a wild 'n woolly horse, and she surely can put the ball right into the basket in basket ball. "Risky" "kind 0' thinks" she'll "twirl a wicked pencil" as someborly's "steno." We take no risk, judging by her sehool record, in recommending her to prospective employers. 27 Seniors MAR DOR MAR l XV.-XLLACE ROHRBACHER Meet our wellvknown "-lumbo". the fierce headsmrm who "can cut a ha-a-ir in two" of "The Six VK'ho l'ass yVhile the Lentils Boil" fame, lle has served the school as a member of the student control and the executive com- mittee, 1921-22 second vice-president of the student body, circulation and exchange manager of "The Guard and Tackle" weekly last year. and marade manager of the 1921 "Big 'S' Sirkusf' And "jumbo" will, in a few years, help the poor public in the capacity of a perfectly good dentist. JORIE ROSEN On seeing "Margie," one says, "lsn't she atti'aet5vv.-?"g on knowing her a little. one declares, "She's very nice-"1 anzl on really knowing her, one loves her with all one's heart. "Margie" came to ns in February from Winnipe , Canada. and was so vivacious that she immediately nrufc hosts of friends. Her clever literary style has enlivt-ned the two school publications with which she has been connected. OTHY ROVVAN "Dot" enjoys getting wildly excited and expecting somt-A thing dreadful will happen: yet her pals say that she's spoiled and babyish.

INEZ RYANT The first impression one receives from lnez is that she is an extremely quiet, demure, retiring young lady. hut just break through the reserve, and you'll find much wit and "pep." And the designs for the artistic and original baskets that come from lnez's brain are a marvel even to Miss 'tllontyf' Such ability is not going to be wasted, because Inez expects to teach kindergarten kiddies in the near future all the mysteries of a, b. c and basket weaving. GENEVIEVE RYANT NYe now have the great honor of presenting Stockton lliglfs Viola Dana! "Gene" is the greatest little "speed hound" that ever trod these classic halls. ller favorite occupation is outrunning speed cops, and even her by- word is, "Oh chase me, sister." 'l'was three years ago that "Gene" bobbed her crowning glory: so she is one of the pioneers in the famous "bohbeil brigade." XVC say, "Rah for Viola!" GRACE SALMON Good natured 'iSammy" liked the hours spent in practice for the drama class plays, especially for "The Man NVho Married a Dumb XVife." She's a good cook, likes riding horseback, enjoys being on the student control and in the llonor Scholarship Society, and is always happy and smiling. "Sammy" says her destiny is teaching the kiddies in the grammar grades, after a teacher's course at San Jose Teachers' College. Y SAYERS Mary Sayers is the mysterious M. S. who during the past year has written thoughtful editorials for the G. 8 'l'. ,lust such careful, serious work will Mary do when she is out in the field of life. VVc have always known "Cat" as a quiet and retiring girl: however, underneath is a warm heart and a keen mind. She spends a great deal of time thinking-thinking of something to writc. ller favorite expression "fantastic smitliert-tus" proves her originality. 28 Seniors GERTRUDE SELL.-XRS Gertrude seems to be a very conscientious girl, who, although she is continually happy and in good spirits, always works hard enough to receive good marks. Every one of her teachers has an exceptionally good word to say for her. ,And her friends-every word is one of com- inendation. She is a very sweet looking little person, but one would never guess that she is a young lady with very decided opinions. JEAN SHEPH ERD LA XX' lf you want music, you should hear ,lean play!

Yet one who once sees her dance is forever lost to the charms of other girls. Remember the aflorable. fluttering butterfly last year in "'l'he Six Wiho l'ass NVhile the Lentils Boilng and the gay participant in many interesting dances? She has been a ready writer and reporter for the weekly and annual, and won a prize in English class as an excellent reader of poetry.

Ed has been prominent for his executive ability in such positions as president of the Scholarship Society. president of the Science Club, war- den of the Xliranglers' Club, and member of the Student Control Committee. Ile has excelled as a debater and orator. Ile will probably be remembered longest by the school for his wonderful interpretation of Sir Joseph T'orter. K. C. ll.. in the opera. "Pinafore." So far he has no serious ambition, but declares that at present his aim is to become a bigger eater than "Spud" Spooner.

They say "Hoppy'l is quite an entertainer. It is his plan to attend U. C. next vear. where he will study to be an engineer. ' MARGARET STEELE t tl X 25 RAY ,Aa I If if lVe here introduce '2Xgatlia" from the "AdmiralJle Crichton" presented by Miss Coman's oral-expression class year before last, and still remembered as well as though it happened yesterday.

Yeh! t'Toots", wish I were a "kid" again! TI-IELMA STEINBECK "Ilohbye!" She's the one who has been doing so much for us the last couple of years on the G. X T. But the best thing about her is the kind of 11 pal she makes. A true-blue friend-that's what she is. VVay back in Bob's freshman year, she helped stir the "iishies" from their rest by pulling the oars in crew. But' nearly all she thinks about now is newspaper work, and some day she may have a journal of her own. STl LES .As president of the student body during the past year. Ray needs no introduction. NVith his ability as an executive and a public speaker, and his quiet influence always on the right side. he has made an cxeellcnt presi- Iftlcnt. Besides this Ray has been a prominent athlete and did rnueh to make Stockton's record so superior in this year. Ray makes a good actor, also, as he proved in the part of Mr. Nathan in the senior play. "The Tailor Made Man", and as a sailor in t'l'inafore". tl, SUMNER 'il'd go wild if I didn't have something to do," njilllllllyil tells ns, and she certainly is noted for being exceptionally responsible. Maybe one reason for this is that she tries to live according to her beloved "Camp Fire laws," and every one knows she will make a successful nurse if she really decides to go in training. "Jimmy" is forever ready for a good time, and the girls in her Camp Fire group vouch for her every time as a good sport. LELIA TAGGART 'llle sure to tell every one she is good-hearted," the scribe was energetically told, and she certainly isg for one who is so noted for her continual optimism and loyalty just couldn't help being good-hearted. "Leon will enter the San Jose Teachers' College after graduating, and will. after her course there, show the "kiddies" what a joy it is to have a lnunorous, sunny teacher. ALVIN TRIVELPIECE V Did you ever talk to "Al" when he wasn't so full of spontaneous, clever renlarl-:s that he kept every one laughing? He was the first "short-term editor' of .the G. K T., and he certainly did honor to the new position. He played on the 120 and 130 pound basket ball teams. lNhen it comes to "ambish". "'.lickle" surely has plenty, as he intends to become a H1TlCCllC0l, after attending the Clolleged of the Pacific, U. C., Coopers Institute. and I arvar . 30 7 Seniors REGINALD TUMELTY Reginald Tumelty is a 'ichampn in every sense of the word, as he holds the state high school swimming record in the 100 yard breast-stroke. llc was also a member of the track team and contributed several first places to the 'KBlue and XVhite" totals. Besides being an athlete "Reg- gie" is a good scout and can always he found witI1 a broad smile on his face. As yet he has no deiinite ambi- tion, but expects to decide within "the next fifty years" ' what line of work he shall take up. VIVIAN UREN Hold! Look at Vivia11's face and you will sec gazing upon you the young lady who has the public speaking ability to receive "ones" from Miss M. U. Howell in that subject. The school had the opportunity to hear her during Better English Week. But woe is me-ffor instead of decorating the inside of pupils' minds with "winged words". "Shorty" expects to decorate the inte- rior of people's houses with little filigrees after she finishes college. M ADELINE VITAICI-I Madeline is, First and foremost, a friend4after that eoines her voice. She's been in the Glee Club for four years X L,--and was in the chorus of "Pirates of Penzance." A little committee work and a part in the "Adn1iralJle Crichton" helped to rest her thoughts a little from her studies. Tell her some interesting fact, and listen to her say- "Oh now really!" MARGARET VVAD GE "Snowball" was on the committee to prepare the program for the mid year graduates and helped to make that first occasion a huge success. She belongs to the Honor AfSeholarship Society, was one oi the members of the "Stu- dent Control", and Filled that important position in a very efficient manner. 'fSnowball" is going to work for the government after leaving S. H. S., and more than likely before giving her the position, "Uncle Sammieu will come back with her favorite saying, "How Do You Figure?" LESLIE VVAGGONER "Les" gives one the impression of being quiet and rather slow, but his record in his classes and his interest in athletics contradict this notion, He has done exception- ally well in track and plays basket ball and baseball with enthusiasm. VIVIAN 'VVEBB This time we have found a young lady who "just dotes on going to chureh"! She likes to bake cakes, read novels, and play the piano besides just loads of other things that prove her wide interest in life. "Blondy's" most abused expression seems to be, "Gee, I don't knowng but she did really know that she helped to "put over" one of the "preppy" school dances, and she will know that she can get enjoyment out of any position in which fate places her. ARN OLD VVERN ER Arnold XVerner has had many love atiiairs, but, sad to relate, they were only the scores of his opponents in tennis. Like "Slick" Dolan. 'XVerner thinks of nothing hut tennis and girls. Yet he does ind some time for his studies. and as a result is about to receive his much- coveted sheep-skin. 'UXrn" is full of "pep" and vivacity, and there are some who doubt the statement that all his love altairs are connected with tennis. Anyway "Arn" is a. prince of a fellow and is conceded to be a "mean looker". 31 J Qin 15' Seniors HEL EN 'WESTGATE If' you have the "blues", just look at "VVessy." She fairly radiates laughter and sunshine. And one who knows believes she could die happy if dancing. She's donc her share of work on committees, too, and hopes to be able tolclo some Journalistic work after she completes her education. PAULINE VVHITE Another artistic member of the class of '22 is Pauline XVhite who has been prominent in the art classes since her freshman year. Pauline immediately gives one an impression, which is true, that she is a calm and refined girl. Although not so lively as many others, she is "a good sport" and has many friends. She has not decided just what she will do after tinishing school, but we are sure she will do with distinction whatever she attempts. CARLTON NV I LCOX 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 of crew, short term assistant manager ot' the annual, and a good student. Many say that Carlton is also very atten- tive to a certain young lady! BERNTCE XV l LEY lierniee has a number of attractive qualities and gifts. lotal strangers can get excited about her heavenly soprano voice, her raven hair. and her 'lVZlITl1JlSl1H eyes, but we who know her don't stop at such heaven-sent tritles. The Bernice wc sing about is lirst of all a. good sport who dotes on horseback riding and all activities and is always the life of the party whether it is in a "gym" dressing room or the Pliilomatlrean Club House. CARLETON NVILLIAMSON L L O Enter the bashiul lover, Carleton Xvilliznnson. At lcast' he was hashful in the Dramatic Wlorkshop production. "The Ghost Story". That was only a playg so d0n't give up hopes, "all ye larlie faires". "l3ashful" entered Stockton lligh School from Rakersheld High School two years ago and proceeded to become a popular member of the student body. Stockton High will sure miss his smiling countenance and cheery manner. The girls especially will miss his bashfnl CU ways. and the boys will losc FL good "pal". YD 'NVOOD Say, have you ever seen "VVolJhly, Ir." smile? If not. you've surely missed it. because he has an awfully cute "hidden" dimplc that shows up when he's happy. And he is nearly always that way, too. VVonder if that 1sn't why we all like him? lle's planning on being a court reporter tto get on the good side of the judgc?J. Now he says he likes to study history! Must be lrom neces- sitv? ALVA XVOODFORD U. NVe present the "Great American Mystery" in the per- sonage of Miss .Xlva XVoorlford. Now, wc do1r't mean she's really mysterious or "spooky" or anything like those. hut that she is so very quiet that she makes people wonder about what she's thinking. NVe all nearlyldied laughing at poor "Sir Ioseph's' old maid auntie in "l'inafore". "Al" enjoys reading, tennis, and other sports, especially when "NVin1" is with her. 32 Seniors EDlTH YANDELL lfdith, much better known as hlillll1DS,,, was on the com- mittee for the entertainment of Oakland High School and did all in her power to make their stay a pleasant one. Sh-I A little bird told another little bird that she has a tendency to be sarcastic, but we really don't know! EARL ZIZLLER Do you know how to he good and still get into trouble? "Zero" dues, and he always displays his knowledge. But, even at that, he's on the student control to keep others out of mischief. He was one of the actors in "Phe Admirable Crichton". llc did much for the seniors by coming in eleventh in the cross country run this year. As assistant manager of "The Guard and Tackle," he pulled in "ads" galore. And don't forget-among the many other things he did was to harden his muscle in crew. 'l'o top oli' all this, he's going to be an exporter. 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- term graduating class. S. H. CHUN S. H. Chun was a brilliant Corean student who gradu- ated in mid year. He is at present, according to his own story, "humming around" looking for a job. A perl son of Chun's abilities will probably not have to "bum" long. llc speaks English like a native-born American and is "white" in all but skin. IOSEPHINE PEOPLES "jo" made her class proud of her when she represented it with her fine speech at the commencement exercises in February. Despite the fact that "jo" was not with us all four years. she became well-known and made many friends in the limited time she was here. Josephine is ?E:JXXt1Jl'EIl1ll'il1g to enter a broader Held of knowledge! RUTH ZUCKERMAN "Znekie" was a girl who never got tired. Always there with some original idea, with some bright word, with something for every program, or with a good class reci- tation-was the reputation Ruth made for herself while 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. JOSEPHTNE THORP 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. JESSIE SAYLES 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- sie is one of our most youthful of the seniors with hcr emblem of girlhoocl, a long braid, down her back. 33 ' gli, 35' X if .71 x A LA55 WI tt y E, the class of nineteen hun- dred and twenty-two, after four years ol toil in these halls of knowledge, being secure in our belief that the world is round, not acting under menace, duress, or force, with grouches towards none and snake-bites for all, do declare this our last Wfill and Testament, exc- cuted on this eighth day of ,lune in Stockton High School, City of Stock- ton.

C25 To Mr. Iliff and Miss Mosbacher, who both so kindly helped us in our senior play, we leave our good will and our faith in them to make polished actors out of unpromising hams. C35 To Miss Langmade, we present every blessing possible for giving all a square deal. C45 A copy of "Boob McNutt's Life Storyu we leave to "Prof," Caulkins in the hope that he may be moved to a higher understanding of students' in- nocent pranks. C55 As a token of esteem, we leave to Miss Miller the sum of 31000, with the understanding that it is to be a gra- tuitous promise which is unenforce- able, for her good nature, her apprecia- tion of youth, and any other virtues she might add. C65 To Miss Diment, we give the hand- engraved motto: "Spare the Hunk, and spoil the child" to be hung over her mantle-piece or adorn her mirror. C75 The title of "Grand Old Man" we bestow on "Prof" Corbett who has always been a friend, a good counselor, and an agreeable teacher. XVI Lastly, we hereby appoint Coach Cave sole executor of this, our Last Will and Testament, and do revoke all former wills hereinbefore made by us. In Witness Whereof, we hereunto set our hand and seal. CSigned5 CLASS OF '22, By Francis Smith. Prophecy 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 the sea. 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 of planes. "More of those pesky reporters, Maggie," said Ed. "Fool 'em." Maggie did. X'Ve dived, not fifty feet bb 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. Ozro Buckman." Then Ed hauled us into a bomb proof shelter as an aerial torpedo hurtled after the note, 'fMaggie," said Ed, grimly, "prepare the Omnircgio for lighting. I'll run that Iiuckman fellow off the face of the earth." 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 shape. "XVill General Durand, head of the armies, not object ?" l inquired. Ulset him object and be hanged", re- sponded Ed. "l'll take my chances with the young Omniregiof' Soon Maggie came dashing in very much excited. "Neil Austin has just wirelessed from his mine in Mexico that Buckman and Paul Iioston have a craft just like ours and are lying in wait in South Africa for a chance to destroy us," he stated. "To South Africa, thenf' directed Ed, and we were off on the big adven- ture. For the time being I was quite nerv- ous and found myself trying to become interested in a copy of Girsh's Medical Gazette, which I was holding upside down. I concentrated on an advertise- ment for Parker's Pills eight times be- fore I finally became calm enough to retire. 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- retary of state: Ruth Hands, vice- presidentg and Mona jackson, secre- tary of the treasury. They form a sort of executive committee which ad- vised by their cofngress. 'lfom Quinn is head of the latter just now. They are having quite a bit of trouble with George Kroeckel who has monopolized the f'movie" industry. Pete Snyder is trying to finance a rival company with Kathryn I-larris and Elbert Bidwell as stars. Dorothy Rowan runs the daily paper, and Lillie Gannon is chief jus- tice. She has just hned 1-lubert Mina- 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', Clemenson, happily married to Ardroe Perry and running a sugar planta- tion! Fred Lonigan was his foreman and Placido Laganapan was another trusted helper. 'llhat Marie Boren and Inez Ryant were both happily married and living on an island near by was one of the interesting facts we learned over the dinner table. 'llhcy had a wonderful house, and we had the pleasure of hear- ing one of Robert Patterson's wireless concerts on the trombone. Lois Lacy also favored us across space with some solos on the piano. She is doing won- derfully well in the new Metropolitan Opera House. 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 Art Company of New York, and the johnson-johnson Beauty Parlors of Palm lleach appeared. It was quite an interesting coincidence running across so many of my old schoolmates in this unexpected way. little later, Maggie and Ed pro- 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- less. "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 Iiuttercd to rest somewhere in the 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- ell's Novelty Shop. Zeller Tobacco, a Specialty. XVe carry Meyers embroid- ery. I saw advertisements for a great many of my old classmates who had founded a colony in the ancient city. in the Bessare 'Bugle which was edited by I-Ielen McAfee and Ruth Lonsdale. 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, were hauled before an American magis- trate, Madge IX-ilenking, and ordered to leave immediately, which we did, but not before I had learned that Al Triv- elpiece was there collecting material for another poem and Bernice lfViley, studying music. Georgia Smith has a vulcanizing works for the accommodation of hydro- planes on the Tiber. Robert Carr is her husband and publicity manager. Juliet Meltzer is in charge of the un- stretchable rubber department there. Carleton XVilliamson has a bathing beach on the river, and Lloyd XVood does the fancy diving. Gertrude Sel- lars is head of the Rubber-neck Vfagon Syndicate, and Angeline Mignacco has a monopoly on the 'lfiber Shelllish In- dustry. I also heard that 'lfhelma Steinbeck and Margaret Steele have organized a company to manufacture street sweepers for Venice. Pearl Sumner and Lelia Taggart are heads of the engineering and construction plants, respectively. Madeline Vitaich controls the cityls ice cream industry, and Ray Stiles has invented a new stretchable spaghetti. WVe waited until we saw our oppon- 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 IVoodford on the Sahara where they were conducting an expedition for the study of the conditions of caravan stable hands. Leslie 'NVaggoner and Arnold VVerner are heads of the Cara- van YVorkers' Union. Vivien IVebb has done quite well and is in charge of the records for the Smithsonian Insti- tute xvhich had its representatives, Lorraine Moran and jean Shepherd, heading an expedi-ion on the Sahara Desert at that Dwight Potter , 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! -By Delbert Miller. 5 of IQ23 S of 1q24 Kenneth Culver ClZlSS of 23.

Sophomore Class Beth Doane secretary, VValter Meyers, treasurer, and john Hodgkins, sergeant-at-arms. In their Hrst year the class succeeded in sending a few men into the sport kingdom. XVhen the class re-entered last fall, Ed Libhart was made the leader, Beth Doane, vice-president, Robert Morris, secretary and treasurer, and Robert Youngblood, sergeant-at-arms. This year the class won third place in the interclass field meet and fourth place in the cross-country run. They were victors over the seniors in inter- class baseball, but were defeated by the juniors. In the Scholarship Society, Thelma Wfest, Margaret Manuel, Helen Parker, and Alberta Reibenstein held the highest honors. The class has never hesitated about entering any school activity, and this is a really good spirit to carry over into successful junior and senior years. Donald Carr Deer Paw and Maw: just thot that you mite like to no that four hundred and fifty-nine of us arived here last September alrite. It seems strange, maw, but do you know everybody new us the first day we got hear. They called us mean names such as, 'Frosh', 'Greenhorns', and 'Freshiesf Well, after we got to know everyone, the sofmores and sinners told us that we ought to get a few offisers. So one nite when school had been let out, a bunch of us came to- gether in the study hall, and guided by a big fellar, Wallace Rohrbacher, we desided that we wanted Don Carr, presidentg Alberta Horan, vice-presi- dentg jack Eccleston, secretary, jim- my Wliitmo1'e, treasurer, and Osborne Bigelow, sargunt-at-arms.

Your sun and doughter, Class of '25 Of 1925 larslwip Society Clas Honor Sch 1 l ORGANIZATIONS l 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- dents. 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 three times. 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 nominating committee. 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 Kathryn Harris were appointed as a committee on attendance. It was agreed, on March 28, that the Stockton High School Honor Scholar- ship Society become a member of the State Federation. The Honor Scholarship method of recognizing and rewarding scholastic achievement on the part of the students will doubtless grow and come to be one of the proudest achievements of this year. u Executive 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 Committee 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 very efficient. The faculty representative, Mr. John S. Reed, has taken an extremely active part in the affairs of the school and has been of invaluable aid to the commit- tee. The representatives from the dif- ferent classes have given a great deal of time to the work of the committee. They are: seniors - Charlotte Eck- strom and Scott Fordg juniors-Helen Gilbert and Tom Robertsg and sopho- more-Tom Sloan. Robert Carr and Alvin Trivelpiece, representing The Guard and Tackle, long and short term editors respec- tively, have edited, without any of the promised financial apportionment of the school funds, a school paper that ranks well up among the best school papers of the state. way it gn' - H J? 1 45 1 Y I, , 4 Student Control 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 of appeals. 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 detention. 1 V I W W..- l..-, ,- 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 were: entertainment and program- Charlotte Eckstrom, Margaret Gealey, Roberta Bush, Audrey Burroughs, Ruth Zuckerman, VVihua Hubbard, Helen Gilbert, and Vivian Marshall: refreshments-Janet Case, Margaret Macnider, Kathleen Mitchell, and .Alice Davis: tags-Agnes McGee, Helen VVestgate, and Georgia Smith. The first freshman reception, to ini- tiate the new girls and teachers, was held under the direction of these com- petent committees on Friday, Novem- ber 28. The girls, who attended in a goodly number, pronounced it a great success. 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 cheer. 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. Miss Mclnnes, dean of girls, has kindly assisted and directed the "asso- ciated girls" in their several undertak- ings. As a body, the "Associated Girl Students," always willing to assist in any enterprise, have been an asset to the school. Wranglers, Club The NVranglers' Club was organized two years ago by Mr. llihf and his debaters for the purpose of promoting oratory, debating, declamation, and public speaking in general. Previous to this, debating interest had died down, but with the advent of this club, debating and oratory have played a real part among the school's activities. The club is divided into four classes: eads, those preparing a debateg junior wranglers, those who have participated in a debate: senior Wranglers, those who have won a debate: and grand Wranglers, those who have won live debates. Thomas Quinn, Edward Smith, and Mr. lliff, the coach, are the only mem- bers who have attained the last honor. A comic ritual written by Mr. lliii' is used in the initiation of new mem- bers, a ceremony held in the assembly once a year. The officers for the club have been: Edward Smith, wardeng Arthur Bass, scribe. The NVranglers have, on several oe- casions, sent speakers to the various clubs in the city. They also took an active part in the county fair last Sep- tember, presenting a play, 'KThe Mouse- trap." The senior wranglers of the club are: Miss M. U. Howell, teacher of public speaking. and the following stu- dents: George Pennebaker, Carleton Rank, Robert Carr, Carroll Cole, Fred Spooner, George llgenfritz, and Tom Connolly. The junior wranglers are: Henry Coffin, Leslie Harper, Gardiner Duff, and Howard Gardner. The honorary members of the club include: Sherid Moran, Harry Lusig- nan, Arthur Bass, Max Newstat, and Dedrieh Anderson, all of last year's debating teams. I' TX fa sl , 9 V l .ll In fi r H Y ' v cience Club The First Stockton lffligh School Science Club was organized in Novem- ber, 1921, by Calhoun Reid with the help of Edward Smith, representing physics g 'lflenderson Ncliee, chemistry 3 Kenneth Culver, physiologyg Philip Baxter, biology: and Alvin 'llrivelpiece, general science. The purpose of the Science Club is to promote research in the science departments ot the school, and to arouse appreciation of the efficiency and progressiveness of these departments. At a later meeting a constitution was adopted, and the following oflicers elected: president, Calhoun Reidg vice-president, Edward Smith: secre- tary-treasurer, llcnderson McGee: lab- oratory manager, Alvin 'llrivelpieceg and sergeant-at-arms, Alfred Fisher. Sixteen of the brightest boys in the science classes were then elected to membership in the club. This club has been given free use of all the laboratory equipment of the school. Taking advantage of these op- Jl fl portunities, they have carried on many successful experiments in research work. Many of the niembers have taken so much interest in their organization that they have read scientihc books, and given some instructive talks on the various branches of science and the principal scientific laws, explaining them in detail and giving a11 account of the discovery of each law and its effect on science today. 'l'o help increase the 111C1l1lJC1'S, knowledge, books on science have been loaned to the club by some of the mem- bers and others interested. The library thus collected has been a great asset to the club. Much scientilic information has been cheerfully given the club by the vari- ous science teachers of the school. Talks have been delivered by Mr. A. L. Caulkins, teacher of chemistry, on "The 'Yalue of Science In Every-day Life," and Mr. Snook, teacher of biology and physiology, on "Science As a Life Study." Q .I K l ' 1' Zi .N M u! i xl' qw ,, rv 53 1 Cartoonistis Club On February 2, 1922. four enterpris- ing students of S. H. S.-Richard Thomas, .lack Thomas, Ralph Gray, and -Iohn llurke-organized a club new to the annals of S. lrl. S., which they named, "The Cartoonists' Club". The idea that prompted the organiza- tion was to provide more cuts for the weekly "Guard and Tackle." The pur- pose of the club now has expanded to promoting such school enterprises as comic operas and the production of plays and to help, without cost to the school, in any alliairs calling for the members! type of work. This club has been very active. Since it organized, cuts have been more numerous in "The Guard and Tackle." The more talented members, Ralph Gray, Richard Thomas, and -lack Thomas, made all the scenery used in "H. N. S. Pinaforef' :Xll fees that are collected are used to cover the expense of cuts in the weekly and the annual school publications. Plans are under way to create a system by which those who are interested in increasing the number of cuts in the weekly may con- tribute two cents each week. The slo- gan which these future llriggses ad- vance is "Sling it with inkf' 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 of artl, ,-Xlvin Trivelpiece Qeditor of the Guard and Tackle weeklyj, and George Diflienclcrfer. X -I Latin Club 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 club. 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 57 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. - x FFGIIC 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- ferent members. 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 li Club 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 Waltz, Helen lfVaite, Charles Cima, Mildred Gremaux, and Agnes Boberg. 59 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 above reproach. Although the society has not been taking any visible part in the school won a league championship or has scored two points in a C. I. F. sectional meet and received a Big "S" for such achievement. 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 successful. . ca as . 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- at-arms. 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 championship teams. 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 period. 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- ger. 1 Memories of their wonderful senior picnic prompted the P. G.'s to indulge in the first P. G. picnic in the history of S. H. S. The picnickers motored to a favorite picnic ground near jenny Lind.

High School Qrchestra 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- Mowry, Hubert Miller, Charlotta Jesch, Arthur VVilliams, Harold Wil- liams, and Marjorie Ryland, viola: Sydney Ackersong cello: Pearl Shaffer and Iola NVilliams, string bass: Les- ter Barker and Orville Buckman g oboe: Hudson Morgan, bassoon: Frank Rule, clarinets: Hudson Morgan, Harold Rush, Luther Rice, and Wilber Kellingg trombones: Lowell Garrison and Herbert Guntherg drums: Fred merous programs presented by the school. Mr. Holland Frazee and Mr. A. C. Blossom were the directors oi these orchestras. The members of the iirst orchestra were-violin: Sidney Ackerson, George Barsi, John Burke, Dorothy Caroll, Blanche Cunningham, John Corson, Roy Farnsworth, Thelma Hogue, Edna Hughes, Alice Hamilton, Leelan Harel- son, Trelaven jury, Frank McGowan, Avanelle Moore, Neil Moore, Evelyn Schmaleg piano: Grace Barsi. The first orchestra, which is under the direction of Mr. Holland Frazee, played for the May Day Pageant, the Nidyear Graduation Exercises, the "Music VVeek" program, the senior play, the regular Commencement Ex- ercises, the second presentation of "The Man From Mexico", and miscel- laneous programs of the Y. M. C. A. and the Philomathean Club. The members of the second orchestra were-violin: George Alvas, Blanche Cunningham, John Corson, Don Carr, Dorothy Dupont, Hazel Davis, Alice Hamilton, Margaret Harper, Madge Mills, Marjorie Ryland, Georgia Smith, and Donna Shaffer: cello: Ellen Carey and Iola XNlllllZlI11S1 bass: Loring Mc- Carty, Flute: Stuart Adams, clarinet: Lewis Fisher, Harold Rush, Allen Wil- son, and Stephen VVhipple: saxophone: Frank Rule and Charles XVagner: cor- net: James Barsi and Melvin Bellig trombone: Robert Patterson 5 drums: Osborne Bigelow: piano: Nell Downs and Caroline Moore. This orchestra was directed by Mr. A. C. Blossom and existed for the pur- pose of preparing the students for the first orchestra. They played for the following school plays: "Bogie Man", "The Tents of the Arabs", "The Silver Lining", "Never-the-Less", "The Man XVho Married a Dumb W'ife", "The Ghost Story", and "The Turtle Dove". 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 theaters. 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,'. The members of the Boys' Glce fol- low: Austin Archer, Gilbert Curtis, Claude Fisher. Scott Ford, Leo Foster, Blair Geddes, Wfillard Giottonini, Her- bert Gunther, Harold Humphfres, Llewellyn johnson, George Kroeckel, War1'e11 Littleiield VVilliam McArdle, Hubert McNoble, George Miller, Tom Roberts, Frank Rule, Lawrence Smith, Peter Snyder, Fred Spooner, Wilbert Spurr, Carl Stiles, Fletcher Udall, Wil- liam VVoodford, Oliver Xavier. 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. Blanche Cunningham, Allene Dayton, Charlotte Eckstrom, Leah Evans, Mg- deline Folsom, Bernice Gray, Kathryn I-larris, Edith Hatch, Evelyn Hol- brook, Dorothy Hughes, Iaqueline johnson, Rae Lewis, Dollie Mason, Bernice McArdle, Angeline Mignacro, Mary Sortors, Eva Thiry, Ruth Thom- son, Lillian Wfalters, Rufene 'VVebster, Madeline Vitaich, Ida Vfasgat, Pauline Wfliite, Marjorie VVooden, Elizabeth Young. f fri?-M Z. 1 qllflldq l Y u.,J,, Q2 W I W Ng J avpfcxmfl I' F.

Last year the diderent vocational classes saved the schools of Stockton about 258,000 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. ACTIVITIES Better Speech 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. Educational Week 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. News Writing 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 school organizations. 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 taking. 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. Indian Pageant A6 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 1 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 llgenfritzg his rival, Marioii Mitchell: the musician, Thelma Hogue: and the interpretive dancing classes. The central committee who had charge of this aifair was composed of: directors of the pageant, Miss Annabel Bradstreet and Miss Elizabeth l-lillg the chorus director, Mr. Holland Frazeeg dramatic director, Miss Carrie D. VVrightg the business manager, Mr. john S. Reedg chairman of properties, Miss Daisy Newbyg and the orchestra, Mr. C. Blossom, Mrs. l. H. Robin- son, Mr. T. XfVeeks, and Mr. Charles XV id d ows. 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 over mean." 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- tions. 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." School parties "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.

Of course Kath- Banquet ryn Miley and Margaret Gealey had to "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 ill. 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 they were. "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. Pinafore Banquet 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 17, 1922. 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 amusing. 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 dry. 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 Jazz Orchestra. 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" of 1922. 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 courses. 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- partment to be indispensable in S. H. S. In fact, he declared that he, himself, would not marry a girl who could not cook. 'fAccording to the slips, blue, pink, and white are the colors of the office," said Earl Zeller in a toast to the office. "but there is no yellow slip, nor is there one yellow streak in the office force." Mr. Berringer answered that no one was better qualified to speak on the preceding subject than Earl since he is a great frequenter of the department named. Delbert Miller and Hazel Carrow re- cited original poems, the former upon the graduates and their journey through life, the latter, in honor of Miss Mclnnes, dean of girls, eulogizing her character. 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 Boy". 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 Carlin. 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 April 28. 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 oratorical victories. 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 the course. National Better Speech Wieck, No- vember 7 to ll, was a movement in which the public speaking class took the lead from the start. At a special assembly held on Friday at 9:00 o'clock of this week, the following members made speeches: Thomas Quinn, acting as chairman, spoke on the movement in general as an education to allg Adella Grissel, on "The Aims of the Move- ment", Vivian Uren showed how words could effectively be used as a speakeris toolg Delbert Miller read an original lyric which demonstrated the use of words as personalities, Helen XVestgate's subject was, "Good English As An Asset In Business Lifeug Ber- nard Collins, "American Slanguage"g Monroe Coblentz, Ulmportance of Cor- rect Speech In the High Schoolug Les- lie Harper, Robert Carr, Howard Par- ker, and some of the members of the oral expression class also gave impres- sive talks. Roosevelt Day was iittingly remem- bered when the following members of the class gave orations on Roosevelt's life at a special assembly held Octobei 27: Mildred Norcross, chairman, Thomas Quinn, "Ideals of T. R.": and Ruth Zuckerman, "Ideals of Theodore Roosevelt". The one liundredth anniversary of the birth of General U. S. Grant was celebrated by the school at a special assembly on April 27. Speeches and declamations were given by the public speaking class and the oral expression class. 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. Lyric 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 Night "Sunny Tennessee". "Prof Svengali's Snake Dancers" completed the pro- gram by destroying the equilibrium of the house. The "mox'ieites" were delighted with that wonderful comedy, "Get Rich Quick XVallingford',, also by a fifteen- year-old picture of Mary Pickford. "Topics of the Day" and Selznick's News completed the "movie" part of the program. One hundred dollars, to be used for improving the girls' gymnasium, was cleared. Smuggling Ghosts 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 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 presented. 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, Adella Grissel. 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 1: 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 other classes in the production of plays. lts members designed and made up the setting for "The Man X'Vho Married a Dumb XNife", which was given by the Drama Class. 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 The Opera, 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 head. 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 school. 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. upinaforen 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 time. 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. N , ,fire - 5 per U flax QQ ,493 sxgnasasr, iili:55,z,,,-- sefglf I lm- have I caw- I .ylo cf-f3..v V ' as -- 83 Senior Pla 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 named above. 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. r 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 amateur production. 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. 1 1 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 appearance. 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 audience. 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 J stenographcr, was done in a business- like and convincing manner by Flor- ence Larky. 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- duction. 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 year. r The characters in the cast were: -lohn Paul Bart .,.,...........,..,...........

When the Moonlight Turns to Silx7er When the moonlight turns to silver On the rippling, sighing river Guardecl by the garlands of the trailing, weeping willows, And the shadows seem the blacker For the eclclying of the slacker Currents in the moonlight silvering toward the shallows, And the Hitting shapes of bat wings And the forms of stealthy night things Are casting ghostly shadows on the waters down below, There is 21 joy in lying Wl1ex'e the softer winds are sighing And peopling every shadow with martial friend or foe. -Delbert Miller. fwv l l , . x . fx L . Q ! W . i l I l 9 l il 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- ton 1'-ligh. 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 main hall. 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 senior play. 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. D The Class of 1918 followed the patri- otic lead and gave one hundred dollars to the junior Red Cross. They also left a bust of President VVilson to the school. A bronze plate was dedicated by the Class of 1919 to the heroes from S. 1-1. S. who sacrificed their lives in the great war. The plate is placed on the sturdy oak tree at the southeast corner of the grounds. The school "service Hag" is -also the gift of this class. The Class of 1920 presented a beau- tiful set of leather-bound books to the school library, These are translations of the Greek and Latin classics. The Class of 1921 began a cumula- tive scholarship fund with a cash dona- tion. How 1922 will follow these illustri- ous predecessors had not been deter- mined when this book went to press. Scholarships Stockton High School has been en- dowed in the past with tour scholar- 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 scholarships. 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.

XVilliam Fred Gallagher, class of 1921. il 4 db X m Q L .1 'Ba Q Progressive Government for progressiye Students A change has been coming over Stockton lfliffh School. This is a O'ood 6 Cl omen, for nothing can progress and re- main always the same. And, as in the lar0'er world. 0'overnments and institu- 'O -bv tions chanffe to meet the needs of a D 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 committee. '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 was written. 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- lications. 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 would be representatives as well as re- sponsible heads for specific activities. ln the commission system of gov- ernment, responds 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 treasurerj, commissioner of athlet- 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- ests. 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 over. 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 future careers. 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 students." 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.

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 every paper. 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 prominence. In this same issue "Bobbye" Stein- beck revealed some guarded secrets from the women teachers' diaries, starting: "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 Saturday nightf' It would be a difficult thing to End a single student who does not remem- ber the big Pinafore edition tjanu- ary l8j with the more than famous blue Pinafore sailor happily wav- ing his wooden leg and parrot in the air. Pictures of Bernice Wfiley and 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,' Spooner goes on record in this issue as saying that "a whiffle-poof dog is a dog whose left legs are shorter than his right legs, so that he can walk around a steep hill without becoming over-balanced," Exceptionally original was the next "special" tMarch 161 with its 'tVietory Editionn emblazoned in blue upon the center of a white background. lt was occasioned by S. H. Sfs winning the basket ball game from Lincoln tscore Sl-l6j. There was a clever "streamer" ldeals 8 nel 443 4 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 him . 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. Hopes 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. lOl STELLAR STUDENTS Stellar Students 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 real success. .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 character. '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- 1922. 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 other activities. 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 encore. 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 school career. 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 Ye Chronic e p September 19-Swarnis of Scintillating Freshmen and Con- spicuous Upper Frosh did overiiow these our Halls and tumble down these our Steps, si 'H upon this Day.

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 world? 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 thought aside. 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 you ?" "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 old "Doc". 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 home undetected. 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 wolf pack. 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 life. 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 worth. i 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. PH'-'H -Edward Smith. Hope The gentle breeze fills the clear white sail. Never, never saw I such gliding of a boat! It conveys what far away treasure From what unknown shore? Wfhere all bliss and hopes end, It leaps to pull to that shore, lt leaves behind the waters 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. Thou Sailor! Oh, Lord! who art thou, Whose treasures of smiles and tears await me?

Mysterious Canyon CSecond Prize Storyj One early morning in Spring, john, his dog, and I, pressed by the law, Hed from camp to the depths of "Great Mysterious Canyon," as it is called by those who have never dared to explore its unknown regions. Before you hear of the strange adventures we met dur- ing our obscurity in these lower re- gions, you should know of some of the tales associated with this chasm of mystery. Once upon a time, the story is told, a party of brave men, seeking for thrills and adventure, set out for the bottom of Mysterious Canyon. XVhat happened to this party was never learned. Only one member ever came back, and he came struggling into camp on the third day after the depar- ture, bereft of speech, able only to make queer gestures with his arms and hands, which, accompanied by the hor- rible emotions expressed on his face. told that something dreadful had hap- pened. Another explorer reported that, on the evening before the intended depar- ture of himself and followers into the mysterious hollow, they sat around their lire discussing plans for the fol- lowing day, there glared, of a sudden, a great flash of light from out the can- yon, and in the glow skeletons passed to and fro, and loud groans resounded from the depths. The experience caused their blood to run cold, they were seized with abject terrorg every one Hed in a different direction, and but two of the party have since been heard of, one insane and the other a nervous wreck. 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 fright. MSO you have arrived at lastg have you?,' broke forth in a low, drawn-out voice. Again all was silent. "So you have arrived at lastg have you ?" called the voice again. "You are safe heref' Top, the dog, trotted into the foun- tain to drink. l-Ie uttered a groan and disappeared., Ai once a door seemed to open in the far side of the wall. Hur- riedly we passed through it, and it im- mediately closed after us. "Looks as if we are safe, doesnft it?" I exclaimed, as we tled from the U11- canny spot. "Stop!" john's strong arm seized my shoulder and jerked me from my feet just in time to save me fromde- struction. The woods had disappeared. NYC stood on the very edge of a rocky per- pendicular precipice which was lost in dense mist far below whence came a low sound as of heavily falling waters. XVe faced the mid-morning sun which 'stretched its rays far into the chasm on the floating mist, refracting every mag- nificent gem-like color of the spectrum. lVe were entranced by the scene, so entranced that our fears subsided. Vile were safe from the injustice of the law, and the terrors of the chasm seemed changed to enchantment, but not for long. 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 ourselves up to the demon. or struggle 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 the verge of falling. A low gasp told that john had failed in the grilling struggle for safety. iXVould the jaws of death be open below to receive us, or would we merely fall into some greater torture? A heavy bump brought me to my senses. Summoning my spent strength, 'I called for john. I-le answered faintly, 'Wafhere are we ?" "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 minds. 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 if 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- rent. 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 Canyon." Kale had been gone five days, we learned later, and in the meantime the culprits guilty of the crime with which we had been charged had been dis- covered. Mysterious Canyon had been our true friend, but we never cared to reward it with another visit. -Dwight Potter. Spring Beneath the weeping willow tree, I'll tune my heart to Springg To mingle with the dizzy bee, And songs the robins sing. Oh, happy are the bud and beeg But happier my heart, Because my harp is tuned to thee, Oh, Spring, where life doth start. Gasoline and the Graclys ' grim I-Ifmofabie ixiemioirp 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- table for the moment. But just at that 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 you read about but seldom find as pic- tured. 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 lake, and a scant three inches at that. Anybody but the Gradys would have been drowned: as it was, nothing save the frosting on the cake was injured. Assuredly God does seem to love the reckless! You are now to picture me seated in the machine outside the Grady resi- dence. In front, Mrs. Grady occupied the driver's seat, with Betsy, the faith- ful Airedale, beside her. No descrip- tion that l might attempt of Mrs. Grady would be adequate. She might have passed for an English duchess or an Irish washerwoman. Her clothes, which had a mediaeval, much-worn ap- pearance, would seem to point to the former, her self-possessed, dignified, monarch-of-all-I-survey manner, to the latter. Our departure was not one to be re- called with pride. "I'm not accustomed to driving this make of car," nonchalantly remarked Mrs. Grady over her shoulder, "but Iill be able to manage it, once I get started." I fervently hoped she would, but as 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- gated on the sidewalk, and were mak- ing audible remarks about us, inter- spersed with kind oiTers to "run and get my dad to come over and see what's wrong." M y companions were completely ob- livious to all this. Mr. Grady, in the back seat with me. closed his eyes. chewed his cigar, and clasped his hands across his expansive waistcoat with the air of a patient cherub waiting for a convenient cloudto carry him of , Mary and Faith, the two little girls, sat demurely gazing at the road ahead. Faith expressed a hope that we should not get "pinched" for speeding as they had been the previous evening. It seemed unlikely. NN-Then we did move, it was to bound 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 off l 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. "I understand it now,', shouted Mrs. 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 rakish angle. 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. Grady and I took turns in dodging, catching, or receiving the missiles. Fifteen miles or so of this sort of thing,-bouncing up and down, racing motorcycle. policemen, serving as a hat rack for any articles of head or neck gear that blew my way-began to tell on me. It was a strain which might easily have 'frayed the nerves of a man far stronger than I. It was just as Betsy, the faithful Airedale, had comfortably ensconced herself on my feet Qand an Airedale is no light weight, mind you? that Mrs. Grady found we were a little short of gas. "Never mindu, she cheered, "we can easily get some at the next town." And the next town was fully twenty miles away! Only the utmost control on my part prevented me from express- ing my pent-up feelings. Faith it was Qthe dear little thinglj who remembered that Mr. Goldheim had said yesterday that there was no gas to be had for love nor money out- side of the city. "That being the case", observed Mrs. Grady, regretfully, "we'd better be get- ting back." The sigh which I then heaved was not one of disappointment at having to curtail our drive. Our return drive was singularly un- eventful. In fact, beyond deeapitating a too daring chicken and narrowly avoiding a collision with an elderly farmer, nothing of particular interest occurred. Now you can readily see how a short- age of gasoline may sometimes prove to be a blessing. So instead of lament- ing the situation, if you ever meet with a like shortage, you can try to picture yourself undergoing an experience similar to mine, and you will feel con- siderably cheered. Only don't, if you have any friends like the Gradys, ask them to take you out for an evening's airing. -Dorothy Mills.

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 superlatively good. 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. Football 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 129 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 record-breaking crowds. 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- ning team. 'llhose playing on ' the hrst team were: center-Zentg guards-Nelson, Harper.Krenz1 tackles-Stiles teap- tainl, Daly, Clemensong ends-Zinck, Gayigan, T1-ombettag quarter-Des H ' ra 4 4 saussoisg halves-Stiles. Seifert, tull- hacks-Dunne, Bryant. 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 players. Woodland, 13g Stockton, 6. Stockton lost the lirst league game to VVoodland. The Blue and VVhite had hard luck and lost by one touch- down. 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 starred. Sacramento, 20, Stockton, 7. The "big'l game! About two thou- sand fans came out to see the Purple down the Blue and XVhite by two touch-downs. Stockton should have Secon 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, cl 131 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 developed. Our boys had lost their "pep" as we had already lost our C. I. F. chances. Thus ended the 1921 football season. Team Bennett, and Gardner, tackles-Bos- ton, Rule, and Eaton, guards-jasper, Foy, and Dawson, half-backs-Gum, Burke, and Christensen, quarter-back -Souzag and full-back-Arata. Stockton, 26, Tracy, 0. The second team had an easy time in the first game of the season. Bass starred in his first game at end. Stockton, 63 Sacramento, 7. Owing to the lack of several star players, the second team lost to the Sacramento second team by failing to convert. Stockton, 25g Tracy, 7. With a makeshift backlield, the sec- ond team again defeated the Tracy "varsity" The game was played as a preliminary to the "big game" with Sacramento. Stockton, 339 Sacramento, 0. The second team worked like a well- Basket The beginning of the greatest period in the basket ball history of Stockton I-ligh School will doubtless be the year 1922. 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 played on the Pacific Coast this year. a htting climax to one of the greatest seasons the C. I. F. ever had. oiled machine and revenged the defeat administered two weeks before. Ben- nett dazzled the crowd with his first and only touch-down. Cheers! 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. Ball 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 19 i -s ,, 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. The l2O's and l3O's also won their First games. Stockton, 30, Oakland Tech, 15. Oakland Technical High School was one of the fastest teams we encoun- tered this year. Stockton had an off night but succeeded in piling up thirty points. Stockton, 435 Modesto, 22. The Tarzans had no trouble at all with the Modesto "quint'i. Patten was the individual star, making nearly all our points. 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 the year. 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 good game. Stockton, 31, Berkeley, 13. The semi-finals! This contest was played at Berkeley. The half ended 8-4 in Berkeley's favor, but Captain Zent and his crew started a rally in third quarter that completely dazed the "Yellow Jackets." Hussey started the scoring, and within three minutes Fif- teen points had been chalked up. The "Cave men" had no trouble the rest of the period. Stockton, 225 Alhambra, 20. 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. f Secon 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 I3O Poun 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 TQHHI Lenz expects to turn out another all- winning team. This team consisted of the following players: Gavigan, Souza, Christensen, Gagen, George, Xvaggoner, Geddes, Hurd, and Dolan. The games played and the score was as follows: Stockton, 273 College of Commerce, 19. Stockton, 29g Tracy, 7. Stockton, 25, Oakdale, 36. Stockton, 125 Ione, 10. Stockton, 15: San Andreas, 19. Team 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. Roush, Roberts, Rank, and Bennett were other members of the squad who did their share of the lighting. The results of the games: Stockton, 28, Second Team, 45. Stockton, 22, Manteca, 10.

"Bud" Funk and Craig also aided Val- pey in giving the score-keeper's hand a cramp and added much fight to the i 1 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- pey, the lank and lean center, was the game. Others who starred were Po- tenti, Frank Funk, Mahaffey, Stormes, and Cavaglia. Stockton, 29: jackson fseconclj, 19 Stockton, 40, Escalon, 15. Stockton y 60 g Escalon, 18. Stockton, 61, Manteca, 2.

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- dent members. 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. Tennis 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 enthusiasts. 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 High Schools. 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 racquet game. 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 Y branch of sport is antici ated for the l last week of the school year. Trac 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 meet. Those who were out for track were: Girsh-100 yards 3 Krenz-shot put and discus, Hardeman-broad jump and shot, l-lannan-high and low hurdles, Sloan-100, 220 and relay, Captain Scott Ford-440 and relay, VVaggoner -high hurdles and high jump, Tum- elty-88O and mile, Seifert-low hur- dles and lO0g Harper-4405 La Berge- Y .

Cross-Country Run The track season opened this year with the annual interclass cross-coun- try 1'un. john German, and Henry Coffin, juniors, came first and second, respectively. Coffin, last year's win- ner, ran half the race with lung' trouble Haack looked good in the discus and is good material for next year. Stockton, 413 Modesto, 70 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- gonerg and the mile by Tumelty. Eric Krcnz took second in the shot put and discus. which put him out of track for a year, In spite of the first two places, the juniors nnished only third. The sen- iors came first and the freshmen sec- ond. Inter-Class Track The seniors won the 1922 meet by a good fifty points. The juniors came second. Stockton, 34MQ Ripon, IOM Ripon was easy picking' for the "Cave men" in the First meet. Belle- quist, running the 880, captured the only iirst place for Ripon. "Hercules" 140 County Meet 1'n the county meet Stockton scored 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 Biggs, four of ten Stockton athletes qualified for the state meet. Sacra- mento took first and Stockton, fourth. Seifert took fourth in 100 yardsg Scott Ford took third in the 440, Hardeman won second in the shotg and Krenz captured first in the discus. Krenz set a new mark for Northern California in the discus with a heave of 114 feet 7 inches. 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 points. "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. Baseball 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- prove. Following are the games played: Stockton lost its first game of the season to Modesto by the score of 3 to 1. The home battery consisted of Goldston and Wallace. Pk Pk Dk The S. H. S. nine also sustained de- feat from the Sacramento "Governors" Pendergast, for the visitors, pitched a remarkable game and whiffed seven men. In the seventh frame, Seifert "Ruthed" with the bases full and scored the only runs for Stockton. The final score was 8 to 4. Goldston and Haack did the twirling and Gagen worked behind the "dish". The Sacramento battery consisted of Pendergast and Miyakawa. Lodi defeated the "Cave men" by the Driver made up the Lodibattery. score of 8 to 5, in a fast game on the Mauteca defeated th e S. H. S. team Lodi diamond. in a practice game by the score of 6 Haack and Souza handled the Fire to 4. Stockton's battery was 'Bava and works for Stockton, while Handle and Potter. Swimming 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 2 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- teng 100 yards back-stroke-Zent, Patten, 220-sGoldwater, Souza, Jones, 440-Souza, Dawson, diving-Stevens, Jones, Burke, Hardemang plunges- Stiles, Miller, Reed. Crew 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- length. 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 the school. 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 and back. 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 Coffin, coxwains. Ray Stiles was elected captain at the start of the sea- son and Arthur Bass, manager.
