To Miss Lucy E. Osborn, a faithful friend and
co-worker-one who has given unselfislily
of her time and effort to elevate the
standard of journalism in S. H. S.,
a helpful teacher, loved by
all who knew her,-We
dedicate this book.
LUCY E. OSBORN
ASSEMBLY IN NEW AUDITORIUM
PRINCIPAL N. H. GARRISON
Members of the class of 1924, as you go from us, I would
have you take as passports on the voyage of life, three words-
plan, prepare, persevere!
Have some purpose in life. A ship without a rudder
reaches no harbor. Avoid "the port of missing men." Plan
your work, but plan first of all to be men, plan to be women.
Plan also to be particular kind of men, men with specialized
vocations. This is an age of specialists.
Prepare for your work. Secure the necessary education
for your particular work, remembering that the best training
is none too good. The competition of the twentieth century is
keen. There are artists and artisans among bootblacks. To-
day's preparation is not sufficient for 'CO1l101'I'OXN,S needs. Keep
pace with your calling. Do not strike twelve too soon.
Persevere in your work. Life's pathway is rough and steep.
It is not strewn with roses. Those who always look for soft
places in life sometimes find them under their hats. Many
fail because of not having any aim in life. Others have a pur-
pose, but do not prepare for their work. Many more prepare
for a specific work, but fail because of discouragements and
difficulties. "Learn to labor and to wait." Plan! Prepare!
Persevere! Success to you.

SYNOl'SlS OF SCENES.
:Net I. Tall, narrow, mysterious halls, appearing very spooky to green
Act Il. Dark, dismal, uninteresting halls, except when brightened by
sophomore play, "Aliee-Sit-by-the-Fire," and soph dances.
Act ill. Bright, cheery, passage-ways used for the sole purpose of what
they are not for, such as a refuge for the studious junior who cuts his dull
Act IV. Tall, dignified hall implying the dignity of the worthy institu-
tion of learning.
Time: From 1920 to 1924.
Place: Good old S. H. S.
At rise of green curtain green scum are seen tiptoeing down halls with a
blank expression on their faces and fear in their eyes. They manage to step
right on through from 1920 to 1921 without any bad eHeets, and later discover
that it was the birth of the greatest S. lfl. S. organization. They are wearing
knee pants, straw hats with elastics, and little waists with Peter Pan Collars,
exceptionally becoming to Ed Mayall.
VVith a self-satished and fearless air this little band gathers together in
1921. Feeling a little more certain of themselves, they stage a play, "Alice-
Sit-by-the-Firef' lt makes a big hit, and many stars begin to shine forth in
all activities. After giving several successful dances, they begin to feel them-
selves capable of razzing the frosh.
Enter 1922 with more dawning intelligence than before. '24's begin to
show up their dignified elders. Earl lXfIcDonald goes through with a bang
carrying nrst place honors for this gang in the extemporaneous contest. Big
hit with junior-senior dance. Discover actor amongst them in person of
Palmer Goldsberry. -
Curtain Qthis time a new burnt-orange curtain, price 3813. Annual editor
weeps copiously at rise.j Rises for last time, 1923-1924, on well behaved
crowd of men and women. Many heroes shine forth. All-senior crawl big
success. Ed Mayall and Cliffton Frisbie garner in all honors for debating.
Philip Cavalero carries seniors through with second place in Oratorical con-
test, hrst places in County and Central Constitution contests, third place in
Northern Constitution contest, and third place in extemporaneous contest
Souza proves athletic hero, and joe P. Goldsberry doubles his repute as an
actor when senior play, "Captain Applejackf' is produced. Then this great
class comes in for reflected glory when the G. Sz T. wins honors as best high
school publication in California.
The 55813 falls in 1924 closing the greatest four-year life of the greatest
class ever graduated from S. H. S.

'llhe class of l9Z5 entered the classic halls of Stockton High School in
September. 1921. Choosing as their leaders, Don Carr, Alberta Horan, James
XN'hitmore, black Eccleston, and Osborne Bigelow, they were led through a
happy, prosperous, and eventful year.
In the election of the second year Melvin Belli, Dorothy Carrow, Ed Peck-
ler, and Bill Nlahaffey were chosen as oflieers. A big event of this year was the
sophomore play, "Come Out of the Kitchen," which was put on to a packed
house in the new auditorium. This year several of the class members dis-
played marked ability in the freshman-sophomore oratorical contest, Melvin
Belli being declared the greatest orator in the two classes. Another year
passed, Finding the class all juniors. ln this year jack Eccleston rose to the
mighty position of supreme ruler, with Ruth Ferguson as vice-president, Ethel
De Vol for secretary and treasurer, and Ovid Ritter for sergeant-at-arms.
This year the class celebrated with a big mid-term junior-senior dance, which
"went over big." '

tRadio Bedtime Storyl
Now, Willie, lie down, and I will tune in for the bedtime story. '.l'o-night
it is to be about a sophomore class in Stockton High School in the year 1923-
l924. Listen, for you, too, may be a big S. H. S. sophomore some day.
"Once upon a time, maybe about two years ago, a big bunch of little boys
and girls entered Stockton High School. In their first year these children
made quite a few records, but it is more important to tell about their second
year, because they were one of the most ambitious sophomore classes that
you will ever hear of.
L'One day in last Gctober this class held a big meeting and an election to
see who should lead them through the year: so they elected Emmett johnson
president again: Evelyn jones, vice-presidentg Huntley Haight, Secretary-
treasurerg and Harry Wfebster, sergeant-at-arms. Wfith these leaders and the
whole class pulling together, they succeeded in having live men on the football
team, live on the basket ball team, four on the swimming team, and live on
the baseball team.
"Athletics was not the only thing this wonderful class thought ol, either,
for they had more members on the Honor Scholarship list than any other class
that year. They also liked to have good times because they had a big sopho-
more dance with "eats" and everything good.
"Sophomore teams debated with Sacramento the nrst semester, and the
class officers helped entertain the visiting debaters at luncheon. Another
group of sophomores will debate the second semester with other schools. In
lact, sophomore debating has become a fixed activity with a constitution.
'llhe sophomore class won, too, in the freshman-sophomore oratorical contest,
which they won the previous year while still freshmen.
"You can see by this story, 'XfVillie, what an ambitious class this was and
how enthusiastic its members were, and now you go to sleep and dream about
the wonderful day when you will be able to be a member of a wonderful class
like this in Stockton High School."
Oh! I have so much to tell you. I'm a big girl now. I'n1 in his school.
Ruth and Rose and jack and Bill and all the other freshmans went into the
large building on September forth. But umphl when we got inside the house
everybody looked at us so funny and they caled us orful bad names, green
and scrub and freshie and my, my! there is some conseated children up there.
They walk around like they was the teachers and they is only the juniors and
After we was up there at that schol for a wile they give us girls a reseption
and eats too but they didn't give the boys none. Then after a wile we elected
our leaders. Marg you should see our president he's such a nice good boy
and he's brite too. l-lis name is Merveyn Garybottle and our vice president's
is Georgie lX'lanual. She has an lovely smile. We've got a big strong boy
for sargent-tarms Mervun Littleliel.
There was a contest between the freshmans and sophomores oncst to see
which side could talk the best on exemploranious topics or say poems and
orashuns. Vie didn't win but we did mighty good and we'll beat next time.
Lots of the children showed themselves proud and got there names on the
Honor paper but lots a others took pink slips fer there's.
Sumemore freshmans come in on February llth and then ge give an orful
nice dancing party, every body had a good time. I hope you'll come visit
me and l'll show you every thing and introduce you to all the teachers. All
us freshman knows them all, cause we've either been axsidently on purpose
shuved against them or met them in suppervised study or retenshun.
Well goodby for a wile, '

BEHIND THE SCENES WITH THE ANNUAL G. 8: T.
'l'o every owner of a 1924 "Annual Guard and Tackle," that book is a
souvenir of the school year at the end of which it was published-a cherished
record of one lap of the four-year race composing his high school days. For
the seniors this feeling is intensified. 'llo them their year book is like fruit
cake or mince meat or winegthe older it is, the more it is appreciated. ln
the years to come the graduates will every once in a while go to the closet,
take out the old 1924 Annual. blow ofi' the dust, and then. turning the musty,
brown pages, will be carried back on the wings of memory to the unforgettable
years spent in S. ll. S. Some recollections will bring smiles: more will bring
tearsetears for the happy days that are gone, never to be equaled in the
Hut of the hundreds of owners, probably not twenty-live could be found
who will look beyond the printed page and find hard mental effort. pages and
pages of painstaking gathering and writing of material, weary hours spent in
reading and correcting copy and proof, days of planning, of preparing cuts,
of soliciting advertisements: only those who have worked on the staff can
realize the tremendous amount of labor required to publish this book.
ln the First place, everything must be carefully planned. Each writer must
know what he is to write and how much he is to write. The editor cannot
merely say, "Andy, write up sports," or "I--lelen, write up organizations." He
must tell the stalii how many words each of their articles may contain and must
that everything is written. Wfhen the copy is handed in, it must be read,
corrected. and then typed by students in the Commercial Department. After
being typed, it is again corrected, again typed. corrected a third time, arranged
in the order it will appear in the book, and then taken to the printer, ready for
'lihe reason for so much correction is that the copy shall be in perfect con-
dition when it goes to the printer, for mistakes discovered after the article is
linotyped are costly to correct and are, therefore, cut down as much as
,But the writing and correction of copy by no means represent all the work
connected with the annual. A large item is the taking of pictures and the
preparation of cuts. In itself the mere scheduling and sending down of seniors
and others to be photographed and the taking of group pictures are colossal
tasks, but it does not compare with the work to be done after the pictures are
ready. They must then be arranged, cut into shape, and pasted on large
sheets of cardboard just as they will appear in the book. lt is from these
News Writing Class
sheets that the cuts are made. ln this process over three hundred pictures are
handled, and a great deal of care must be observed in order to prevent any
The art work is another phase of the production that requires considerable
labor. The art editor and his assistants spend hours innumerable in preparing
drawings and creating designs, large and small, to add beauty and iinish to
One of the greatest, yet one of the least realized of the divisions ot labor
is that of the management. VVere it not for the managerial staiif, the annual
would be practically an impossibility. The manager and his associates work
incessantly to secure the advertisements that appear in the back of this book
and which make the annual a financial success.
It is indeed difficult for those who have had no intimate connection with
the annual to appreciate the expense incurred in its issuing. The purchaser
pays one dollar for itg it costs over two and one-half dollars to produce itg
the total cost this year will amount to almost three thousand dollars.
Of this amount but eleven hundred is paid by subscribers, The rest has
to be made up by advertisements, theater nights, and the student body. The
difliculty encountered in securing sufficient funds to cover the cost of the
annual is all that prevents its growing in proportion to the growth of the
school. Last year's annual editor said, "This year, perhaps, will see the end
of the dollar annual." 1923 did not see the last of the dollar annual, but it is
to be hoped that 1924 will. The school is growingg the annual must grow
with the schoolg consequently it is absurd to keep the price where it has been
ever since the book was nothing more than a pamphlet.
In the above we have tried to explain some of the work necessary to pro-
duce the year book. Last year's editor set a standard which we cannot expect
to raise, but, when students understand the difficulty encountered in issuing
this year book, we hope that they will not seek out its defects and criticise
the staff accordingly, but will appreciate all its better points and, still better,
ln the above editorial the appreciation the students owe to the producers
of the annual was discussed. ln turn, this editorial speaks of the editor's
appreciation of those who helped and supported him in his work.
The members of the staff to whom the greatest amount of credit is due are
the assistant editor, Elizabeth Evans, and Cliffton Frisbie and Nicholas
Mayall. XVithout their perfect dependability and never-ending efforts, this
book would not approach being what it is. To Richard Thomas must go a
great deal of praise for his excellent work as art editor, 'igood" will not de-
scribe an annual when the same adjective cannot be applied to its art work.
Orrin .l'I'aynes as manager and Bob Goldsberry and Marie Hands as his
assistants are responsible for the nnancial success of this book, and nothing
speaks more eloquently of their success than the fact that not one penny of
the student body's funds was used to pay its cost. The editor also thanks the
heads of all the departments and their assistants for their valuable help in
furnishing necessary data and material.
lflowcver, the bulk of the credit must go, not to the editor, his associates,
the stahi, or the managers. 'llo Miss Osborn, the faculty adviser, is due most
of the appreciation for the bulk of the work done. Wfith no personal interest
in the annual other than the fact that she is teacher of journalism, she has
given unsellishly of her time and efforts towards helping the staff. Inexperi-
enced as every editor must be. the annual would indeed be an unworthy
production had it not been for her advice and labor. The other faculty
advisers are also to be thanked for their valuable assistance. Many serious
mistakes would have been made without the experienced and timely help of
Mr. Reed in linancial matters and the technical advice given by Mr. Comer.
The editor as well as the entire staff take this means to express their pro-
found appreciation to anyone who advised, assisted, or supported them in
SELECTION NOT ELECTION OF EDITOR AND MANAGER
A question that has remained unsettled in the minds of high school jour-
nalists, and, in fact, of high school students and teachers in general, is the
ideal method of selecting the editors and managers of the school paper and
annual. This is especially so in Stockton High School where the problem is
farther from solution than it is in many other schools. At the State High
School journalistic Convention held at Stanford University, the answer to
this question was one of the most important parts of the convention work and
the one that provoked the most discussion, discussion largely due, however,
to the fact that each school which had a satisfactory method wanted to advo-
cate that method above all others,
To reach a conclusion on this all-important matter, the convention presi-
dent appointed a committee, two members of which were from Stockton. At
the committee meeting it was found that there were two confiicting princi-
ples-one favoring some carefully supervised form of election, the other
adhering staunchly to the appointment method. There was, however, a strong
current of opinion running through the entire convention in favor of appoint-
ment. Since the committeemen, as well as the convention at large, were
pressed for time, the result of the deliberation was an indecisive compromise
which, like all compromises, probably satisfied no one. As the convention
president remarked, "XVe can bring this up again next year.', The plan pro-
posed in the committee's report was to have a committee composed of the
faculty adviser and the English faculty nominate two or more students who,
in the committee's opinion, were best fitted for the office, then submit these
candidates to the student voters. The convention went on record as favoring
this method only because, owing to the limited time and the great Variety of
methods advocated, no one satisfactory mode could be formulated.
The arguments advanced by those proposing appointment are, in brief,
that students are not qualified to select the candidate best fitted for the office
-that they often vote on the basis of popularity instead of ability-and that
the choice should belong to those who really know the requirements of the
work and the qualihcations of the candidate.
lVithout doubt, the office of editor requires more technical ability than does
any other student office. Practically any student could more or less success-
fully execute the office of president or representative, because these positions
do not require any particular training. lint the editorial chair must be occu-
pied by a person who has the training and ability to fill it. The members of
an athletic team are named by the coach. Did anyone ever object because the
candidates for a position on the football or basket ball squad were not sub-
mitted to the students for election? The cast for a play is appointed by the
coach. No one feels that the students are being deprived of their rights by
this system, because he knows that only the dramatic instructor is fully cog-
nizant of the actor's ability. Similarly, who is in a better position to say who
would make the best editor than the faculty adviser or teacher of journalism?
The system now in use in Stockton High School is, we feel, in need of
amendment. All voice in the matter of choosing the editor should be taken
from the hands of the students. fAs the editor writes this he can hear, above
the click of the typewriter keys, the sound of a thousand voices shouting,
"Tyranny, Tyranny l"j The reason is that it is actually true that there have
been numerous cases in which the person who would make the best editor
was not elected. Of course, the clause in the constitution which states that a
candidate must have recommendatory grades in journalism places a certain
restriction on the candidates, but what is there to guarantee that the voters
will elect the best person running? The provision that office seekers must
have the approval of the faculty adviser is practically nil in operation, for
there are no examples on record where the adviser failed to recommend any-
one who had the grades. There is actually one instance where, out 'of five
running, the one least qualified for the position was elected. Appointment
would eliminate any possibility of this recurring. Indeed, even of two recom-
mended candidates, one may be far better than the other though not so well
. Many schools, some of them larger than S. H. S., QSan Jose .lfligh and
University l-ligh of Oakland, for instancel employ the committee appointment,
and they have found it very successful. However, realizing that problems
differ with the individual school, the editor proposes the following plan, which
we feel should be embodied in the school constitution:
Full appointive power of both the long and short term editors should be
vested in a committee composed of the following: faculty adviser Qchairmanj,
financial adviser, the head of the English Department, the incumbent editors,
the principal, and the two vice-principals.
'l'he faculty adviser would know the candidate's technical ability, the
linancial adviser would know his discretion in financial and legal matters, the
head of the English Department could vouch for his ability in English, the
editors would have worked alongside of the candidate and would represent
the students' side of the question: and the principal and two vice-principals
would know about his character, habits, qualities for leadership. Students
would, of course, always have the privilege of petitioning the committee in
behalf of certain applicants. 'llhe recall power should also belong to this
committee and would apply to the editors as well as to the rest of the student
The present plan, while it may succeed in securing some one who can "get
by" with the work, does not guarantee the election of the best person for the
work., A little careful thought will convince anyone that the only reasonable
means for procuring the best man is the one suggested above or at least one
similar to it, the whole aim and object being to secure the students best fitted
to serve the school in this important capacity.
,Everything said of the editor is true of the manager. At the Sigma Delta
Chi convention the committee on "lrlow'to Select a Manager" advised, without
compromise, direct appointment. The report was accepted without discussion.
The same committee as the one named above, with the financial adviser
as chairman and with the addition of the head of the commercial department
to insure knowledge of such matters as bookkeeping and advertising might
serve for the business manager's selection. Beyond question, the use of the
committee appointment system would result in the securing of a better man-
ager as well as editor.
Stockton High School, if she is to keep abreast of the times, should fall in
line with the more advanced and efficient methods of handling this matter and
adopt the slogan, "Selection, not election."
A girls' student athletic committee, the oHering of an insignia for the girl
athletes, the interest of the girls' physical education teachers, and the sponsor-
ship of the Girls' Association have all increased the interest in girls' athletics
The girls' student athletic committee, an innovation at S. lrl. S., has done
a great deal to further the girls' interests. The committee is composed of the
captains of certain teams who have been elected by these teams. Thus they
represent those who are most interested in sports as well as those who are
elected by the girls and their physical directors. This committee fosters any
new sport or athletic movements, such as the girls' crew or tennis club.
Another new plan this year, the insignia G. A. QAssociated Girls'
Athleticsj, has been offered to any girl fullilling the requirements, and many
seniors made great efforts to capture the prize. This was a wonderful stimu-
lant to girls' sports, as it gave them an incentive to work for, for they knew
that only one who earned it, got it.
The co-operation of Miss Hill and Miss Bradstreet, Girls' Physical Educa-
tion teachers, has helped a great deal in promoting the girls' general interests.
It was they who originated the idea of an insignia, and by their co-operation
and help with the athletic committee arranged the tournament. It is through
the aid and help of these teachers that the annual Spring Festival was made
a success, and certainly they deserve much credit for their hard work and
The sponsorship of the Associated Girls has meant a great deal, particu-
larly in regard to the Spring Festival. lf they keep up this good work, girls'
athletics will certainly profit by il,
The advantages afforded the girls are the same as those afforded the boys.
Athletics are healthful. They teach clean sportsmanship, and are an outlet
for overflowing, youthful exuberance.
Thus, we may look back on this year as one of hard work in girls' athletics.
Gt the last four years, this year has seemed to advance girls' sports more than
any other. If the co-operation and excellent management of student and
teachers continues, excellence in all girls' sports can not fail to be the result.
SPECIAL G. AND T. EDITIONS
Originality in form, color, and subject matter seemed to be the aim of the
staffs of both first and second semester weekly Guard and Tackle editors, for
the number and variety of special editions exceeded those of any former year.
In fact, almost every issue was in itself a special edition, featuring as each did
some special event or occasion.
The VVelcome Edition, with pictures of and messages from Mr. Garrison,
as principal, Earl MacDonald, as student body president, and Dorothy Quinn,
president of the Girls' Association, was dedicated to the new teachers, stu-
dents, buildings, and administration.
"The Tack," a small magazine bound in heavy paper and sub-titled "the
paper with a point," was the work of the Press Club. It was sold on Tacky
Day at 1Oc a copy, and was distinguished by a humorous, whimsical style of
Photography played a large part in making the weekly an attractive paper,
for Cliffton Frisbie's camera recorded faithfully most of the more important
events of school life during the year. The "Victory Edition," celebrating our
conquest over Sacramento on the football field, was especially replete with
snap-shots. Bennie Bava's classic countenance ornamented the front page,
and on the sport page Carlo Souza, HFlZlSl'lHiPC1'1'lll, and "Brick" Muller
beamed at the reader. .
A boy, a hatchet, and a turkey symbolized the students' Thanksgiving in
the next special edition. This symbol was blocked in colors upon the front
A beautiful picture in rich red and blue of the wise man on his camel being
guided by the Star to the manger of Jesus was on the front page of the Christ-
Advertising the Drama Class play, "The Twig O'Thorn,v a large photo-
graphic cut from one of the scenes of the play was featured on January 23.
The journalism Number, edited by the newswriting class, was printed in
red and black ink and had a clever cartoon by Richard Thomas on the front
The eighteen February graduates were honored by a special edition with
their pictures on the front page, and a class history, will, and prophecy to
"Through the Green Door," the girls' pageant, was next featured, with a
photographic cut of members of several groups of dancers.
The Commercial play, or "Clarence," edition showed rhymed boxes and
many clever, bold-faced advertising lines.
A terrible pirate in red, drawn by art-editor Williani McArdle, glared from
the front page of the senior play issue, which was given added distinction by
being printed in blue. This number was awarded first prize at the State
A "Debate Special" was issued as a surprise on Wednesday after the Easter
vacation when no paper is usually expected, and celebrated the first double
debating victory of the year.
A special "Red Mill" edition was published on May 8. Besides a four

column cut depicting some imaginary scenes from the opera, the paper also
told in flaming headlines of Philip Cavalero's oratorical victories at Sacra-
mento and Modesto and the "Guard and 'llackle's" achievements at the Stan-
ford press convention.
llflay 23 saw the Homo Edition, edited exclusively by the genus homo and
containing clever hits on femininity in general.
lN'oman's proverbial "last word" was spoken in the Hllobbed Bulletinl' of
june 5, the last issue of the school year and the first paper to be completely
edited by girls.
A noteworthy accomplishment of the 1923-1924 G. Sz '.l'. was the publica-
tion of three six-page editions during the first semester-establishing a new
record for enlarged issues-and the attempt to permanently increase the size
of the paper. This attempt failed only because of the lack of sufficient funds.
At the present rate, several others will have appeared before june 20, but
too late to be added to this history of special editions for 1923-1924.
One of the greatest honors ever won by Stockton High School was that
achieved this year when the Guard and Tackle was awarded a loving cup for
being the best high school paper in California at the State High School jour-
nalistic Convention at Stanford University on May l and 2. The convention
was held under the auspices of the Stanford chapter of Sigma Delta Chi, the
national honorary journalism fraternity. The convention consisted of round
table discussions, convention assemblies, a banquet, dance, and barbecue. A
great deal of the work was done by committees, one of which was headed by
Lawrence Meier of Stockton.
Before the conclave ended, a State Association was formed to be led by
Buruell Gould of Uakland High as president and Dorothy Carrow of Stockton
The cup was presented to the school at an assembly held for that purpose.

THE ABSENT MINDED PROFESSOR
QFirst Prize Storyj
To the Professors mind, the world was a sphere created for the purpose
of harboring insects. Of, course, the Professor acknowledged the existence
of other things-animals Qhuman and otherwisej, birds, fishes, trees, and a
multiplicity of similar side-issues g he even knew in a hazy way that sun, moon,
and stars gave the needed light. He knew that these things existed, but they
meant nothing to him.
The Professor had a faithful, helpful, and unusually patient wife who kept
her thoughts to herself and did not nag when he forgot his meals, his engage-
ments, and sometimes even his collar and tie in his absorption in a new kind
of bug, beetle, or butteriiy.
Students were a necessary part of his life, of course: otherwise the college
that provided his living would not have been established, and in the arduous
chase after new species one must keep up his strength by eating, and to eat.
one must make money to buy food. But his classes were only a sea of faces
changing from year to year, whereas a specimen pinned to a cork was a joy
The woods back of the college properties were his happy hunting grounds.
Here, when his classes were dismissed and the weather permitted, he lived his
true life. The webbing on the wing of a moth was the cause of greater excite-
ment to him than the election of a president. "The world forgetting, by the
world forgot," his spirit reveled in the realm of bugdom, and his days were
complete and contented.
But one day when he was wandering in the wood on the trail of an elusive
beetle, the Professor's eyes were attracted by something glittering at his feet.
He stooped, his mind still on the beetle, and picked up a ring-a plain gold
band with a forget-me-not of turquoises. For a moment the Professor was
struck with a sense of familiarity, but a movement in the grass diverted his
attention, so dropping the ring into his pocket, he pursued his prey. He
thought nothing more of the ring until the next day, when waiting for his
mail at the post office, he drew out his handkerchief, and the ring fell to the
Hoor. A lady behind him called his attention to it, but as he looked at her in
a puzzled manner and made no move, she herself picked it up. "Upon my
word," she cried, "that looks like Mrs. Fay's ring. Vffhere did you get it, sir ?"
Momentarily jolted out of his abstraction, the Professor glanced at the
object in her hand, then looked more closely and said, "That is a ring I gave
my wife years ago," and without further ceremony dropped it into his pocket
and went his way.
Never bothering his learned head about current events, he knew nothing
of the robbery at Mrs. Pay's house, did not even know that the rich widow
had rented a house in the college town for the benefit of her son. The town
had been buzzing about the crime for days while the detectives were at a loss
for a clue. Had it been a bee or wasp buzzing, the Professor might have been
Now a new note was added. The staid Professor had in his possession one
of the stolen articles! It was inconceivable. Wfhat should be done? At last
it was agreed that a committee, consisting of the local banker, a detective, and
the college president, should make discreet inquiries. They were led i11to the
house by the Professor's wife, who then went to call her husband. He was
entirely absorbed in the delicate task of mounting his captured beetle and paid
little heed to her.
"Come," she said gently, "Mn Haines and Mr. Black and the President
want to see you on important business. Can't you let the beetle go for a
"He can't go, my dear, he is dead. That is evidently what they want to
sec. They have heard that I-."
"Perhaps that is so. You had better come down and find out."
"Very well, my dear." SO the Professor reluctantly followed her into the
presence of his three solemn visitors. He greeted them cordially and began,
"You have heard of it already ?"
"NVe have," said the banker, "and we are here to hear more of it."
"XVhy, it's a very rare specimen of the-"
But the banker rudely interrupted, "Specimen be-."
The President shook his head and said solemnly, "Professor, we have heard
that a certain ring was seen in your possession, and while we cannot believe
you to be guilty of dishonesty, we are here to demand an explanation."
The Professor looked blankly from one to the other. "A ring?,' he queried.
"At the post office it fell from your pocket."
Memory stirred faintly. "I believe I did have a ring, but--f' lle put his
hand into his pocket and brought forth the tell-tale article.
"That answers the descriptionf' cried the detective. "Vx7here did you
The Professor brought his mind to bear strongly on this, to him, trivial
matter. "VVhy, that is a ring I gave my wife before we were married."
"Oh, no," said his greatly puzzled wife, "think again. I have never had
a ring like that."
"VVhy, of course, you have. We were down by the lake, and I remember
telling you that the stones were blue just like your eyes."
"But my eyes aren't blue, dear, they'rc black, you know, and I never went
to a lake with you."
"VVell, well," murmured the Professor, "then it must have been Laura."
"l,,aura? I haven't heard you speak of Laura before. NVho was she ?"
asked the wife, still more puzzled,
"W'hy, Laura was a young lady I used to know who afterwards married a
railroad man named Fay."
"But where the Dickens did you get Mrs. Fay's ring?" demanded the
"Think, man, think," begged the President.
The Professor, thus adjured, rubbed his head, gazed about, and thought of
his unmounted beetle. That brought it home to him. "Wl1y, I found it close
to where I captured my beetle. You really must see my-."
The banker seized hi1n by the wrists, "Can you show us the spot where
you found your precious beetle?
The Professor brightened immediately. "Wl1y, certainly I can. That's
easy, because the earth had recently been dug up-."
"Enough V' cried the three. "Let's go."
There was no hesitation now. The entomologist knew where his prize had
come from and led them directly to the spot. His audience did not care to
listen to the details of the capture. They dug feverishly at the foot of the tree
where the earth had been disturbed. The Professor wandered away seeking
something more interesting than the mere unearthing of stolen jewels,
"My dear,', said the Professor a few days later, "I have certainly done
Sheriff jones a great injustice. I never guessed that he was a lover of scientihc
subjects. He came to me today and handed me a check for five hundred

"VVell, my dear, to tell the truth, I don't know. As soon as I saw the
check, I thought of that new microscope l've wanted so much. He said some-
thing about a reward. lt is very gratifying to feel that my services to science
are appreciated by the common people. It must have been for that last article

And so he mused on. All the while his wife was thinking how much she
needed a new stove and a carpet, but being a wise and understanding woman,
she said notliing.
A PROMISE OF PEACE
This war-sick world of strife is weary worn
Wfhen every scientific art is spentg
And mighty brains at last to peace are lent,
Though many aching hearts are now forlorn,
Since all the bravest sons from home were torn,
And new made loves and old asunder rent,
And weary backs with work and war are bent.
ln every shattered home new hope is born,
For in the sky, still shining, is God's love
Vlfith rosy radiance of pink and gold
Reflected in the setting of the sun,-
A promise sent to us from those above
NN'ho found at last the quiet of the fold
The promise of a better day to come.
Note: This sonnet is based on the old superstition that a bright, beautiful
sunset betokens better weather on the morrow.
THE COUGHING ARTIST
CSecond Prize Storyj
XN'hen Martha Ruggles stepped off the boat at Sydney, Australia, she
looked around in amazement. There was not a kangaroo or cannibal in sight.
Instead, a great sprawling city straddled over the harbor sides. But when
Martha had been in "the land of upside-down" for a year, she decided it was
a very queer place indeed. Sunshine, hard, bright sunshine, every day-
Martha began to get very homesick for the murky fogs and sleety autumns
And then joe Liggett happened along. joe was a truck driver at the gov-
ernment wheat yards, and Martha met him at the lorrymen's picnic at Clon-
tarf. lt was love at first sight, especially when joe learned that Martha was
cook at the Admiralty House. That was real society, if you like. VVhen they
had been out three times, joe said to Martha,
"H ow about it, kiddo F'
And Martha didn't reply, "W'haddya mean P" She said, very cleverly and
without any silly shyness, f'Righto !"
joe and Martha were married. Now this is fXrchie's story from this point.
Archie was Martha's brother, whom she had left in the old country valiantly
working at the arduous job of painting dolls' faces. Perhaps that is where
and how Archie developed asthma. just as soon as Martha was settled in
her new cottage with joe, she talked about sending for Archie. Considering
that it was Martha who had paid the bulk of the purchase money on the cot-
tage, joe did not think it would be discreet to dcniur about getting Archie out.
He had seen his picture and thought that he could use him to advantage by
putting him to some useful work such as keeping the yard in order or painting
the fence occasionally.
In due course Archie arrived. joe was disappointed in his brother-in-law.
Archie had been told that Australia was a land flowing with milk and honey,
and he was willing to sit around the house till the milk flowed his way and the
honey trickled from above.
He had an affliction, too, an exceedingly distressing cough, which on the
slightest provocation, such as j'oe's asking him when he intended to get a job,
jerked up in his throat and gave a fair semblance of strangling him. joe sus-
pected that Archie had this cough well trained, since it did not seem to trouble
him when he lay out in the hammock on Sunday and dozed till lunch time.
Wlien it was time to wash the dishes, Archie was usually seized with such
severe paroxysms that Martha would lead him outside to the hammock again
and get him settled under the trees. On these occasions joe fixed up the
kitchen for Martha, washed the dishes, and swept the back porch.
Both Martha and joe dreaded Archiels coughing Hts. And joe got in the
habit or running round to the corner sooner than hear his brother-in-law
rehearsing the life and death cry of a Ford car. Archie's cough was no short,
sharp explosion. It was a long, wheezy, dreadful sounding tempest, such as
that of a strangulated sirocco, like the magniiied sound in the pipe stem when
grandpa cleared his pipe. Its force would send Archie clutching at the air
and leave him limp and purple.
NVhen Archie could no longer extend his rest in the Liggett cottage and
keep on friendly terms with his brother-in-law, he sulkily agreed to look for a
job. joe 'forestalled his fruitless search by signing him up as elevator boy at
the People's lnsurance Building. It was light work and called for a change
of scenery only, since Archie put forth practically the same exertion at the
elevator as he did at home. After two weeks, Archie came home and said he
had been sacked. His employers were "sorry to lose him," and in fact gave
him two weeks' pay in lieu of notice, but his dreadful cough disturbed the
passengers so much that they preferred to walk ten flights of stairs sooner
than listen and view the results of Archie's malady.
It seemed all right to Archie to work two weeks for four weeks' pay, and
before long he had embarked on the very lucrative practice. First a job as
salesman in a haherdashery store resulted in three weeks at work, and then
he was regretfully laid off, with an extra week's compensation instead of
notice. A short sojourn as usher in a movie house followed and a similar
enforced farewell. Archie found himself getting rich. But with each succes-
sive job Joe became more morose. Soon he forbore entirely to talk to Archie,
and even Martha could not restore his boyish good-humor and naive optimism.
In short, Archie's cough and Archie's guile were driving joe to distraction.
He wanted to murder Martha's brother, but knew he would surely hang and
would not reap the fruit of his noble deed to mankind.
But Archie did not lose his good humor nor his bright, friendly attitude
toward joe and his sister. 'llherefore, when joe proposed that he and Archie
take a little holiday together, his brother-in-law cheerfully accepted. But joe
would not trust Archie to carry any of the luggage. They went to a mountain
resort, and bloc tended his companion as tenderly as any nurse might. It was
a line imposing resort that Archie found himself in. l-le couldn't quite under-
stand Joe's generosity, but he was willing to accept things as they were when
they contributed to his physical and mental comfort.
At the end of a week, during which time they walked, rode, danced and
lished, ,loc spoke of going home. Archie, too, had had enough of this vacation,
ideal though it was. He hadn't coughed once, which made it very pleasant for
all concerned. But he was unhappily surprised when joe told him that only
one of them was to leave.
"XfVhy, what's the idea P" said the amazed Archie. "I ain't taking no one-
man honeymoon in this hole in the woods."
"Archie,' said Joe, solemnly, but not without a slight twist to the corner
of his mouth, "you might as well know it now-this place is a sanitarium.
Now you're going to be a good boy, and do everything nursie tells you while
l'm away, and we'll soon have that nasty old cough out of you. Bye-bye."
And he was gone, leaving the stunned Archie to gather slowly the real import
of his words.
It was indeed a sanitarium, and soon the liendishness of joe's plan was
brought home to Archie. lrle was taking a cure, but what a cure, exercise,
diet, enforced sleep when he felt like dancing, walking when he wanted to rest.
At the end of three months the doctor released Archie and gave him a clean
certificate of health.
He came back to .loc and Martha, but his cough was gone forever. He did
not last long, however. l-'le went back to London three months later, a
blighted and blasted soul. His cough, his cherished cough was gone, his chief
means of livelihood was taken away. He had raised hundreds of pounds by
that coughg it was the quickest heart toucher he knew. And now he was
completely ruined. He couldn't cough if he wanted to.
The doctor told joe it was perfectly simple. Archie's cough was due to a
peculiar twist in the vocal cord, and Archie had found his freak wheeze one
day when he was playing. 1-ie could call it into being whenever he pleased,
and he pleased often, much too often for joe's peace of mind. By an ingenious
and simple little operation, the surgeon had straightened Archie's wanton
cord, straightened it so much that Archie's voice took on a sweeter tone, and
he was impotent forever as a coughing artist.
"THE GIFT OF SONG"
Q Honorable Mentionj
'lOh, give to me the gift of song!"
So prayed the student oft and long:
And turned his eyes to ancient verse and story,
Seeking in vain for inspiration's glory.
Yet not for him the moment rare-
He read, he wrote-and still the page was bare!
Not far away, a youth of sweet, grave mien,
Each day among the sylvan dells was seen:
Un forest paths he inet the graceful muse,
And knew her not-nor thereby did he lose.
For from his lips ecstatic song forth burst-
Men loved the poet and the thoughts he versed.
Poetry, you see-Jtis hid
Bright foliage and flowers a1nid:
Vfho seeks the least the most is like to findg
'Tis to the heart revealed 3 not conquered by the mind!
fThird Prize Storyj
The prisoner reached the top of the wall. Crouching there, he lifted his
head ever so slightly and with instinctive caution made a hasty survey of the
inside of the prison yard. Then with the agility of a weasel, he glided over
and sought safety in the shadows beneath.
He had planned well, he reflected, as he ran along, His absence would not
be noticed until the seven o'clock check-ing and he would be far away by the
time the prison siren sounded the alarm of an escaped prisoner. A farmer's
clothes-line would provide a change of clothing, and all going well, he would
be in the city by the time the alarm was sounded. Then to see jimmy Jr.,
his baby boy, for the first time, and Mary, the squarest little wife in the state.
It was late when he reached the street where Mary and he had courted,
married, and rented their "hole in the wall" from the old jewish proprietor.
jimmy Sr. could still see the black velveteen cap, green with age, that the old
Yiddisher wore perched on top of his ebony-black hair. jimmy must look
out for him and Conlin, the "square toes" on that beat.
But what was the matter? A crowd of ill-dressed men and slatternly ap-
pearing women were mulling around at the door of his tenement. Old Flat-
foot, the cop, was there, toog so jimmy stepped inside a doorway to wait until
the crowd abated. After a time it grew smaller, and he was able to slip in and
up the stairs to the room where Mary and junior were. The light was burn-
ing, but no noise came from the room. He wondered if anything had hap-
pened to her and whether the crowd downstairs knew about it.
But he braved himself to knock timidly at the door and stand there. He
thought of Mary and junior in the fieeting seconds before the door opened.
He wondered whether she would be glad to see him and how big Junior Was.
The opening of the door broke his train of thought, and he found himself
staring at the black-bearded Visage of a total stranger.
By an effort of will, he managed to articulate the words, "Is Mary
Ryan in P"
"Don't know her!" replied the black beard. "Do you, Mother?" and he
addressed a woman within who appeared to be his wife.
"She lived here. Had a baby boy," volunteered Jimmy Senior.
"Oh, her with the kid," recollected the man.
"Naw! She skipped out with a drummer from Chi. Said she wasn't
go'nna lose out waiting for her con husband to get out of stir. Any way,
what do you want to know about her for ?"
'Tm just a friend, just a friend," murmured jimmy Senior. "Thanks
' He stumbled down the stairs and out into the street, his eyes blinded with
the tears he could not shed. He staggered on, little caring for the people he
bumped into or the muttered oaths that marked his trail.
Before him was the district station house, and with one last trace of sanity
remaining, he pushed open the door and walked in. The desk sergeant turned,
pencil in hand, to write down the supposed complaint. In a toneless voice,
with the monotonous accent of a clock ticking away the moments, the convict
'Tm jim Ryan. I just escaped from up the river." Then, holding out his
wrists for the bracelets, "VVhat are you going to do about it ?"
It was a sweltering day in mid-August. Inside the engine room the heat
was oppressive, and the monotonous hum of the hoist was interrupted only
by an occasional jangling of the signal bell. Seated near the shaft was a small,
drowsy-looking boy, evidently of ten or twelve. From time to time he edged
slowly over to the water barrel, took a deep draught, and then lay down in
the dull shade to the right of the fuming opening.
To all appearances, Willie had no more energy in him than the mangy
dogs who lay basking in the sun. But VVillie was not to be judged by appear-
ances. He was meditating on things far removed from laziness. He had been
forbidden, not an hour since, to go out of sight of his home on the hill behind
the mine. Now, everyone who has undergone the experience knows how
pleasant it is to loiter around a baking mine on a hot summer's day when a
fine swimming hole is not a mile distant.
This was the cause of Willic's meditation: if he could not go swimming,
how was he to get excitement-the primary desire of his young career?
Wliile he was thus pondering, the skip let out two miners who emptied
their miners lamps and walked on to the buukhouse. VVillie lazily regarded
the emptied carbide sizzling on the damp ground. There was nothing new
about its actions, VVillie had seen the same thing many times before, yet he
gave a start, and a close observer might have detected a fleeting smile. He
sidled along carefully to the rear window of the powder magazine and
Again a close observer might have noticed a small gray figure, with a can
labeled "KEEP IN A DRY PLACE" under its arm, crawl out of the powder
house and steal over to a shallowpool of water. Willie put his hand into his
pocket and pulled forth a broken match. The fleeting smile changed into a
wide grin. -
A few moments later, from behind a shrub on the hillside, a certain small
boy was watching a crowd of men gathering around a certain shallow pool
from which a cloud of black smoke was mounting to the sky. The small boy
chuckledg he had had his excitement. From the bottom of his young heart
he thanked the miners for emptying their carbide lamps near him.
IN SECRET PLACES
fFirst Prize Poemj
'Up in the meadows when soft winds go
NfVllCI'6 the earliest March green grasses grow,
Wfhen the pussy willows begin to blush
At the wooing of the first glad thrush,
W'hen the sunbeanis spin the fairy gold
'lfhat lures the ferns from the leafy mold,
Then early on some new blown morn
The tender buds of spring are born.
The fragile petals lift the hoods
That gave them shelter in the woods,
And tiny leaves soft-curled and new
Unfold their vernal charm and hue.
Then azure lupin fresh and frail,
Slender cream cups tall and pale,
Violets hidden sweet and blue
Are but the dreams of spring come true.
And in their fragrant beauty lies
'llhe perfumed joy of paradisej
Down by the waters where grey gulls call
To the high blue silence over all,
NfVhere white-winged clouds content to stay
Mirror their loveliness in the bay,
lfVhere gypsy ships with sails set free
Forget the shore and drift to sea,
There emerald crests of proud waves ride,
Only to break and return with the tide,
VVith restless dreams that never cease
And give their maddened victims peace.
W'hat great distress perturbs this sea
Beneath the sky's serenity?
Beyond the flowered dunes of life,
llflust there be always desperate strife
And helplessness, as are the waves
Of emerald tide but bondage slaves?
But still they rise with booming roar,
Wfith frenzied longing for the shore,
VVith fallen hopes once high and grand
Seek comfort on the silver sand.
Out in the sky when the zenith blue
Opens the gates and the sun rides through,
NVhen twilight robed in her perfumed gown
Softly Hings the shadows round,
And earth below in misty gloom
Silhouettes the purple bloom,
NVhen little night winds romp and play,
Far o'er the sea day slips away,
But sweet and tender lingers yet,
1-Ier kindly deeds night can't forget.
And now perchance is faintly heard
The frightened cry of night time bird,
01' singing as the waves join hands
And softly dance to meet the sands,
As 'cross the sky's blue barred with gold
Oehid tints and rose unfold,
Crimson clouds, and violet sheen,
Turquoise Hecked with bright jade green
Are painted there in the tranquil hush,
And hang in the dusk at evening blush.
That life could hold and give to me
The wonders round me that I see,
Is something I have pondered O,C1',
And yearn to learn still more and more,
And oft I've asked what is this thing
In all the tender buds of spring
That awes me so, and makes my eyes
Fill up with tears at sunset skies?
VVhat master of the waves at sea
Can make them roll eternally?
Wfhat strange thing in the mountain air
Can fill the heart of one with prayer?
Then from the realms of infinite space
I saw an angel's gleaming face,
And softly played she on a harp
Music low as throbbing heart,
And sweetly came like an old, old song
Notes that I have treasured long,
From heavenly realms to earthly sod
Came the answer, "It is God."

With a robin for my choir
Till my soul soars high and higher,
Oh, let my sermon be 21 tree,
And let me worship silently
And feel at last God speaks to me!

"SHUT THE DOOR"
QFirst Prize Playj
A sketch of no particular importance or worth, just a conglomeration
of words and an idea or two for no reason other than to
use up a few sheets of paper and typewriter ink.
Rest assured that this play will not win
the Pulitzer prize of '24.
The scene is in any so-called average American business office. They are
all the same, so why bother to describe it to you who read the Saturday Even-
ing Post or any such magazine. Of course, there is a desk, and at this desk
We find one of the characters of the play. I-Ie is the American business man
fthe average, of coursej, and you will find a detailed description of him in last
week's copy of the said magazines. Why waste precious paper telling you
all about him? However, he is busy. QWho ever saw one who wasn't?j
We must get into the spirit of the piece which is intended to be very brusque,
for is it briskj and business-like. Of course, the play starts when the curtain
goes up, and, thank goodness, we have no opening scene where the maid and
the butler are engaged in a detailed discussion of the scandals surrounding the
master and mistress. We are relieved not to hear opening lines to the effect
that "there have been strange goings on in this house for some time" or "I
may be just a hard working girl, but I have some pride," or "Don't tell a soul,
but so and so did this and that and likewise ditto bing bang and what not."
This, thank the gods, is not a problem play, except that it will be a problem
to get anyone to read it. But stay-the curtain has risen, and we must get
down to business.

SCENE: The curtain opens on a room very plainly fur-
nished, but comfortable. A library table is in the center, on
which are a few books and a lamp. At each end and at the back
of the table are comfortable chairs. At either end of the room
are windows: under one is a low seat, under the other is a shelf
with Howers on it. Several pictures are on the walls. As the
curtain opens, a girl is seen curled up in a chair, a book in hand.

QDuring this speech a dark clad figure to represent a thief, with a mask
and his cap pulled low, enters the room unseen and records on the little clock
on the shelf the time that it took Jean to say, "Just wait a minute."j

Frank-Never mind the excuse, Jean. Excuses don't get you anywhere.
You are slipping behind.
jean Cangrilyj-VVhat do you mean?
Frank-jean, it is just this: Everything you promise to do, you put off
for just a minute, and then forget all about it until it is too late. The other
day you promised mother you would bring chairs from the yard-and then
put it off "just a minute" until it was too late, and rain had ruined them. The
last few weeks that excuse has covered so many things. I don't believe you
could pass a single day without it, Sis.

thoughtfully. The mother looks from one to the other.j
Mother-jean, you wanted your rose-colored dress for tonightg didn't

Frank Qwalking to doorj-John is out at the gate. I'll see you later, jean.

QFigure enters and records time. jean leaves the room. Mother stands
and stares after them, then sinks into a chair near the table and talks to her-
self, meanwhile working on the dress.j
Mother-I don't know what I shall do. Frank and Jean are continu-
ally quarreling over that question. I can't blame Frank, for he is right. jean
can't go on this way, and she is old enough to know it. No one except her
family will stand for such a habit. I- fInterrupted by j'ean.j

jean-Oh, yes, it's lovely.
Mother-All right, I think I have everything all right now. I don't

put it on.

have to wear that old blue one. QGoes off stage. Mother finishes work. Jean
enters, gives dress to mother.j I-Iere it is. I don't think any pins came out.

see how you are making it hard for all of us?
Jean-Now, maybe mother can't get my dress finished, and I wasted
time that she could have been working on it. I suppose I'll have to wear my
old one, and it's mostly my own fault flooking at Frankj. I'll tell you, Bud-
die, I'1l try not to say it any more. I never will say it again.
Frank-Great! But I don't believe you can. The habit has grown on
you, and you say it without meaning to.
jean Cgetting up and going to tablej-You don't! N?Vel1, you'll see.
Frank-Say, jean, I'll tell you what I'll do. You remember that book
marker uncle jack sent me that you liked so well? If you can count seven
days without having once made that excuse, I'll give you the marker. The
days needn't come together, just so there are seven of them.
jean-You might as well give it to me. It's mine already.

SCENE: The same, one month later. Frank is seen busily
writing at the table as the curtain rises.
jean-Oh! Frank, I've won the book marker.
Frank-It's been a hard task, hasn't it, Sis?
Jean-Yes, and I'd never have accomplished it but for you. Every time
I started to say those beastly words, you would stop me. Do you remember
that first day? Even before you left the room, they flew out.

jean Qsmilingj-Do you remember the evening you laughed at me when
father asked if I had written to auntie, and I started to say-? No, I won't
even say it. You laughed at me and then pretended it was some huge joke
in your book. But I don't blame you, Buddie.
Frank-Yes, Sis, but through it all you stuck to your purpose, no mat-
ter how hard it really was to forget those four little words. But after this
experience I know you will always remember. I have been counting the days
the same as you have, and I have the reward in my pocket Qhanding it to herj.
Jean-It has been hard, but I think the last three days were the easiest.
They all came together, and I never dreamed I could remember for three long
days in a row. Thank you for the marker, Frank. But more than that, thank
you for showing me how unbearable I was becoming with that good-for-
nothing excuse. .lint please don't think I am going to forget. Now that I
have this, I am going to try even harder, for I have both you and it to remind
me. It's just the beginning. I'll leave you to your writing now.

Frank-Yes, I gave her the marker today, and she is so happy after
waiting a whole month for only seven days.
MotherEYes, dear, but it has been worth it, if she will only remember.
Frank-l think she will. She is determined now, and when Jean really
wants to do a thing, she can do it.
Mother-Yes, Frank, this is one of the happiest days of my life. I am
So glad you could sec a way to help jean. She has worried me so with
that habit. Yes, ,lean has a strong determination now to keep the marker
honestly. l think she can do it, but you must keep on helping her, for she
will need your help. Now, you'd better go and dress if you are going with
the boys and girls tonight.

A busy year with some changes in the personnel, which have made it some-
what hard to function. has been the fate of the year's Executive Committee.
Contrary to the customary plan, "'l'acky Sirkus Dayu was held in October
and netted the school treasury about 5290. Since fewer basket ball games
were played here this year, the funds from this sport were considerably less
than those of last year. A High School Night was held in December at the
"'l'. Sz DY, theater for the purpose of getting money for the Guard and Tackle
annual. The sum of 55200 was raised.
The committee loaned the opera S500 from its funds to pay all advance
costs, such as the royalty, materials for scenery, and the costume rental. This
amount was to be repaid after the receipts from the production were in. This
was not an accomplished fact when the annual went to press. By an agree-
ment with the senior class, the Executive Committee gave S300 to the Guard
and Tackle annual, and the senior class paid the entire sum, 3800, for the
curtain in the new auditorium.
The members of the committee for the tirst semester were: chairman, Earl
MacDonald: secretary, Philip Cavalerog faculty adviser, Mr. john S. Reed:
editor, Lawrence Meierg senior representatives, Stephen Arata and Edwin
Mayall 1 junior representatives, Melvin Belli and Dorothy Carrowg sophomore
representative, I-larry Berg: vice-president of the student body, Helen Parker,
second vice-president of the student body, Edward Libhart.
In the second semester the following changes were made: Herbert Gun-
ther was appointed chairman of the committee: Cyril Owen, senior represen-
tative, to take the place of Edwin Mayall who was elected short-term editor
of the weekly Guard and Tackle: Mario Pigozzi, junior representative, to take
Melvin Belli's place: Detlef Brown, sophomore representative pro-tem, for
Harry Berg who was practicing baseball and asked for leave of absenceg and
Milo Hewitt, second vice-president. These appointments with the exception
of the office of second vice-president, were confirmed at an election. Marion
Tubbs was elected to fill this office.
Varied indeed were the activities of the Girls, Association this year.
The onicers for the year were: president, Dorothy Quinng vice-president,
Carolyn Kerriekg seeretary-treasurer, Agnes McGee.
.The constitution of the association was revised this year, and an advisory
board of eight girls, one from each department of each year, was established
tu aid the president. Elections were also to be held in common with the
student body elections.
A plan for adviser candy sales was tried and proved successful. The sales
were held in the main halls, and different girls' adviser sections had charge
each time, selling home-made candy. l
The iirst freshman reception was held in October. An Egyptian dance
with real mummies, vocal selections, a ballet dance, and a battle between the
"long-hairs" and the "short-hairs" were all on the program.
' An original play by Betty Coffin furnished the entertainment for the second
reception held in March.
The regular monthly business meeting provided an opportunity for de-
veloping the talent of the girls through programs presenting recitations, music,
Since the girls are hostesses of the school, a resolution was adopted by
which all guests of the school were entertained. Refreshments were served
to debating teams and coaches and to other representatives of schools who
The girls were active on committees for Open House Day and the Junior
Red Cross work.

activity that was undertaken. lt was entirely managed and presented by the
girls under the direction of Miss Hill and Miss Bradstreet of the Physical
Education Department. '
Two delegates, Dorothy Quinn and Helen VVaite, accompanied by Miss
Mclnnes, attended the Valley Federation of Girls' Leagues Convention at
Modesto. Stockton was elected to choose the vice-president of the Valley
Federation. Ethel De Vol was elected to that office.
At the time this book went to press there was nearly one hundred dollars
in the treasury, and a party for the old people at the County Hospital was
Two new oienses, crowding in the cafeteria line and talking in the halls
during periods, were added this year to the previous list that come under the
jurisdiction of the Student Control Committees.
The Girls' Student Control had Helen Parker, first vice-president of the
student body, for chairman and Margaret Manual for secretary. The other
members were: Thelma Merritt, Margaret Macnider, Anna Erle, Dolly
Mason, Alice Potter, Roblin Hewlett, Ruth Stiles, and Lenabelle Allen.
Edwin Libhart, by virtue of his position as second vice-president of the
student body, was chairman of the Boys' Student Control for the first semes-
ter. ln the second semester these ofhces were filled temporarily by Milo
Hewitt and later permanently by Marion Tubbs. Lawrence Fay was secre-
tary, and the remainder of the group were: Palmer Goldsberry, Robert
Ganeles, Charles Gagnon, Edwin Hughes, VVilliam Roush, Donald Boscoe,
Herbert Gunther, and Earl MacDonald.
An innovation outlined in the senior constitution, newly adopted this year,
was an advisory board to be called the Senior Council, whose duties were to
advise the president and to vote on a great many questions that had formerly
been left to the president's discretion. The more vitally important questions
were still left to the vote of the class. The senior council decided on two
mottoes out of the many suggested ones to present to the vote of the classg
they also submitted several colors from which the class chose pearl and rose.
The council made arrangements for the senior dance and performed other
One councilman from each senior adviser was chosen each semester.
Palmer Goldsberry, the president of the class, was the chairman of the council.
The personnel of the group the first half was: Urith Hurd, Gladys Nicholas,
Robert Ganeles, Nicholas Mayall, Calhoun Reid, Margnerithe Dietrich, Mar-
garet Manuel, and Alberta Reibenstein. The regular officers of the class
were also members, including Beth Doane, vice-president: Calhoun Reid,
secretaryg and Lana Root, treasurer.

HONOR SCHOLARSHIP SOCIETY
' Honor Students 1924
HONOR SCHOLARSHIP SOCIETY
Many and varied were the activities of the Honor Scholarship Society
under the supervision of Miss Mary E. McGlothlin, faculty adviser. Nineteen
amendments to the constitution relating to the awards of pins, seals, and other
affairs of the society were passed. One of the most important changes was
Amendment 18, which raised the eligibility for membership from seven to
eight points with two points as a maximum in activities, raising the admittance
to a total of ten points. The twentieth amendment provided that the manager
of the circus on "'l'acky Day" may receive two activity points for the quarter
in which it occurs, and that the members of the Student Control Committees
and the Executive Committee may also receive two activity points each.
ln November an assembly was held for the presentation of certificates to
all those who had held membership in the society from September, 1922, to
june, 1923. Mr. George F. IX-"lcNoble was the speaker of the day. The certifi-
cates were awarded to Gertrude Raumgart, Philip Cavalero, Elsie Dunn, Her-
bert Gunther, Edward Hughes, Helen Parker, Dorothy Quinn, Alberta Reiben-
stein, Edwin Mayall, Nicholas Mayall, Hazel Barker, I-losmer Comfort,
Norene Daoust, Margaret Manual, Olive Morris, Gladys Stevens, Ethel
De Vol, Sander Barron, Yvonne Goulding, Bernyce Ingersoll, Raymond
Johanson, Rossi Reynolds, Iris Sears, Lucy Ritter, Lois Scantlebury, jean
VVilliams, Raymond Vtfilliamson.
A second assembly was held in April, 1924, with Dr. Forrest Maddox as
speaker, also for the purpose of presenting certificates to all students who had
been members of the society from February, 1923, to February, 1924. Those
who received certificates at that time were: 1fVilliam Irvine, james Barr,
Stephen Dietrich, Leslie Davidson. Sam Sherman, Paula Vlfeinstein, Edward
Fong, Frances Crevelli, George Dohrman, Robin Dunn, Clara Catherine Hud-
son, Evelyn Reid, Marion Richards, David Suzuki, Mae Petzinger, Ernest
Lonsdale, Norman Parrish, Marion Van Gilder, Hoyle Carpenter, Jabez
Comfort, and Bessie Iahn.
'llhe first twenty students leading in scholarship this year were: Stephen
Dietrich, Mervin Garibotto, Raymond johanson, Paula Wfeinstein, Evelyn
Reid, Elsie Dunn, Helen Parker, Alberta Reibenstein, Clara Catherine Hud-
son, David Suzuki, Ansel VVilliams jr., 1-lerbert Gunther, VVilliam Irvine,
Ernest Earl Lonsdale Jr., Samuel Robert Sherman Ill., Hoyle Carpenter,
Philip Cavalero, Ruth Fitch, Dorothy Quinn. Elise Dean.
On 'llacky Day the society successfully conducted a hot-dog stand and
thereby added forty dollars to the student body coffers.
The officers for the first quarter were: president, 1-lerbert Guntherg vice-
president, Olive Morrisg secretary, Elsie Dunn, treasurer, Sam Osband: ser-
geant-at-arms, Stephen Dietrich. In the second quarter Herbert Gunther
was re-elected president, Alberta Reibenstein became vice-presidentg Elsie

The officers for the third quarter were: Herbert Gunther, president, Alberta
Reibenstein, vice-president, Williain Trivelpiece, secretaryg Ernest Lonsdale,
treasurer, Mervin Garibotto, serveant-at-arms.
The rc-organization of the .l-'ress Club after two years of inactivity was
one of the acconiplishnients of this year. According to the constitution, its
avowed purpose was "to raise the ideals and improve the quality of contem-
porary journalism, to learn more about journalism, and to increase apprecia-
tion of good journalism."
Besides this, the members managed to instill some fun and good times into
the meetings. The iirst large activity, besides the regular monthly meetings,
was a trip to Oakland on October 15 to attend a convention of the Typo-
graphical Union. A picnic on Lake Merritt was enjoyed by the group who
attended, after they had viewed the printing exhibits in the Civic Auditorium.
"The Tack, The Paper VVith a l'oint,,' was a magazine published by the
club on Tacky Day instead of the regular weekly "Guard and Tackle." It
contained many clever features, and a sum of money for the clubis treasury
was garnered from its sale at ten cents per copy.
Setting the fashion in club banquets, which have been so much in vogue
this year, the school journalists enjoyed a banquet in February in the school
cafeteria, the centerpiece on the table being a typewriter surrounded by "copy"
paper. Mr. Thompson, city editor of the "Stockton Morning lndependentf'
was the speaker of the evening on the subject, "journalism as a Career."
The charter members and ofhcers of the re-organized Press Club were:
VVillia1n Whitmore, presidentg Calhoun Reid, vice-president, Catherine
Humphreys, secretary and treasurer: Elizabeth Evans, Lawrence Meier,

Members added the second semester were: jane Willard. Betty Coffin, Louise
Thomas, and Margaret Bishop. The roll was still open and probably not
complete when the G. Sz T. Annual went to the press.

'l'he fact that Latin still is a "live" language has been proven by Stockton
High School's Latin Department in the maintenance of a club which possesses
great vitality and activity.
"'llhc Stockton 'High School Latin Club," which is now one of the largest
clubs in school, has a membership list containing over ninety names of stu-
dents at present studying Latin. Over half of the Latin Department belongs
to the club, and every class from freshman to senior Latin is represented,
while some classes have a one hundred per cent membership.
The time was when it was thought that to belong to the Latin Club, one
must be a studious freak who sat up until the "wee sma' hours o' th' morning"
probing into the secrets of Caesar, Cicero, or Virgil. But now a different
attitude is taken by the students, and more and more interest is being shown
at each meeting.
At the election in September a new constitution was adopted by which the
club was authorized to have an election of officers twice a year. Those taking
office in September were: Melvin Belli, presidentg Betty Coffin, vice-presi-
dent: Marian VVashington, secretary and treasurer: joe llflerchason, sergeant-
at-armsg and Geraldine Graves, song leader.
The choice of officers in the second election, which was held in March, was:
Betty Coffin, president: Dolly Mason. vice-president: Janice Dixon, secretary
and treasurer: Detlet Brown, sergeant-at-arms: Richard Taite, song leader:
and jack Eagle, yell leader.
The Latin Club play, which was given May 23, had not occurred when
this book went to press, but plans had been formulated and a successful
achievement was anticipated.
The club picnic was the affair which probably gave the best time to the
members of any ofthe club activities during the year. Delicious eats, frolic-
somc games, and amusing stories characterized the enjoyment of this event
The straining of human blood. the disintegration of the atom, human heart

principles of radio-these are some of the fascinating subjects which have
been studied and discussed during the past year by the Stockton High School
Science Club. ln addition, many wonderful experiments that seemingly defied
explanation were performed before the club.
The membership of the Science Club consists of thirty-one active members
and eight associate members. A large percentage of the membership has
always been present at the meetings, more than Efteen regular meetings hav-
ing been held.
Last fall the club took an active part in making 'llacky Day a SUCCESS.
Through the co-operation of the Science Department, it was enabled to pre-
sent to the public a series of mystifying and baffling experiments.
ln the early spring the club was given an informational intelligence test
on science, and it was found that the members were exceptionally well in-
formed on scientific matters.
On April 5 and 6, a group of some twenty-live members made a trip to
Lick Observatory on Mount Hamilton. They were permitted to look through
the large thirty-six inch telescope and were shown through the wonderful
scientific library there.
The credit for making the club what it is today is due mainly to the con-
scientious work of its officers. For the first semester the officers were:
Charles Crowell, president: Carston Grupe, vice-presidentg Philip Cavalero.
secretary-treasurer, Langdon Owen, sergeant-at-armsg Charles Wagiier, labo-
ratory manager. During the second semester the officers were: Philip Cava-
lero, president, Lewis Fisher, vice-presidentg Nicholas U. Mayall, secretary-
treasurerg Raymond Davis, sergeant-at-armsg VVilliam Irvine, laboratory

After being out of existence for over a year, the Dramatic Club was revived
under the direction of Miss Carrie D. VVright, drama teacher, at the beginning
of the fall semester. The Dramatic Club had long been an active organization
of the school, but had been merged into the Dramatic VVorkshop course.
However. Miss VVright never felt that the lfVorkshop entirely took the place
of the club, because a great many students who were interested in dramatics
could not enter the Wforkshop owing to conflicts in their schedules. Conse-
quently, as an opportunity for all those interested, the club was re-organized.
All of its work is done out of school with no scholastic credit given.
The club's constitution provides for monthly meetings and sets forth cer-
tain requisites for membership, which are: regular attendance at meetings,
manifested interest in dramatics, and willingness to take part in at least one
production during the year.
The ofhcers for the year were : manager, Mario Pigozzig assistant manager.
Ernest Lonsdale: and commissioner of finance and records, Naomi Lewis.
These officers have quite successfully carried out the plans of the club and
have done a great deal toward establishing it as a permanent organization.
The club presented for its members shortly before Christmas a play entitled
H011 Christmas Eve." There were eleven students in the cast, and it was
coached by a member of the Dramatic WOFkSl101D, this making it entirely a
CHESS AND CHECKER CLUB
The past year was the First year of the Chess and Checker Club in Stockton
High School. This club, under the leadership of Mr. Woodwvorth, a new
teacher, was organized soon after school started in the fall, with Oliver
VVisler as president and Alfred Cooke as secretary-treasurer.
lt was originally planned to have matches with other schools and with the
California or Stanford freshmen, but the membership fell off, and this plan
was abandoned. However, a tournament was started to determine the best
players, and Douglas Fuller and Andy Hayford became chess and checkers
champions respectively. These students were called upon to defend their
titles several times, and they were successful in keeping them.

Free concerts were the features this year of the band's activities. One
concert was given for the public in March and was largely attended by an
enthusiastic audience. lt was repeated later for the school in the new audi-
'l'he band was also invited to play in lllareh at the dedication of the new
Christian Church. A second concert was given in June and was as well
received as the iirst.
All the band members wore the uniform coat and cap of blue at all their
public appearances. Those who play under the direction of Mr. Andrew C.

Playing at all the plays and debates, and contributing largely to the success
of nearly every public occasion was the orchestra's contribution to the school
life of 1923-24. Among the larger events in which the orchestra assisted were:
Senior Play, Open House Night, Mrs. VVest's Dancing Exhibition, Public
Speaking Contest, "The Red Mill" opera, and the Freshman-Sophomore Ora-
torical Contest. This orchestra also appeared twice on programs of the
Stockton Musical Club.
Mr. Holland Frazcc had charge of this group. The members were:
violin-Don Carr, Lois Drew, Dorothy Dupont, Charles Edwards, David
Friedman, Martha Genser, Ferne Grummett, Dan jordan, Dorothea jurgen-
sen, Treleaven jury, Sam Kramarski, Alice Langville, James Luly, Frank

'llo prove that girls are as talented musically as are boys, a Girls' Orchestra
was organized this year. Practice was held during the adviser period and
later during a class period. This new orchestra played several times at Girls'
Association meetings and elsewhere. The members and the instruments they
played were: violin-Georgina Reid, Phyllis Threlfall, Martha Genser, Alice

"l'lello-Tacky Day" and the HS. H. S. Sirkus," which were combined on
the same day, October 19, made one of the biggest events of the school year.
Every student and teacher worked with the utmost enthusiasm preparing for
the day, and on October 19 the whole school availed themselves of this oppor-
tunity for having the best fun of the school year.
The parade, which is for the purpose of showing the townspeople how
sedate students act when they forget their dignity, wound in a colorful pro-
cession down the main streets and returned to the campus for the afternoou's
hilarity. The setting was in itself conducive to light-heartedness, suggesting
as it did the old-time country circus, with its big canvas tent, sawdust, bunt-
ing. and Hags. But the best of all were the ludicrous costumes.
In the big tent were staged several side-shows by various organizations and
adviser sections. Among the most popular were "The l-leathen Chinee",
"Local Color", "Rush", the "Freak Show", and "Game Chickens".
Food always plays an important part in Tacky Day proceedings, and every
variety could be obtained. Sandwiches and codiee, hot dogs, ice cream, pop-
corn, and root beer were the main articles of diet. A new feature of this
service to the inner man was the Girls' Association restaurant.
"The Good Barge I. O. U.," a clever skit presented by Mr. Frazee's opera
class, packed the cafeteria to the doors, and another popular concession was
"Abracadabra," an Egyptian mummy come to life, produced by the "Latin
Club." The Science Club held sway in Science 2. Mr. VVoodworth ran a
clever "Movie" in Science 1.
The "nickel dance" is always the drawing-card on "Tacky Day," and it
was especially so this year, when the orchestra proved unusually well versed
in syncopation. One feature of the dance was the announcement of the win-
ners of the various contests. Helen Parker was voted the most popular girl
in school. Don VVilliamson was judged to be the wearer of the best costume,
and Ed Foppiano, the tackiest among the boys, Mae Petzinger won the prize
for wearing the best costume, and Alice Potter, the tackiest dress among the
girls. Nr. Livingston, science teacher, won the faculty prize for the best
A large part of the credit for the success of the affair should go to Edwin
Mayall, who was the manager. After the expenses were paid, 25250 was found
to be the net proiit, which sum was turned over to the Executive Committee
for school activities.
T. AND D, NIGHT
One would have thought that Stockton High School had decided to hold
sessions in the T. 81 D. Theater if he had entered that place on the night of
November 17, for unquestionably the school had turned out en masse to
patronize the most successful, entertaining, and unusual "High School Nite"
program ever produced.
Robert 1-larry, G. ck T. manager, had charge of the evening, the purpose
of which was to raise funds for the annual.
"Ti A M I f D -- J
ic an Next oo1," a Luster Keaton comedy, and a "Felix the Cat"
cartoon were received with enthusiasm by the audience, but the part of the
program most appreciated was that put on by the students themselves.
Dancing, singing, music, and comedy furnished the entertainment. La
Verne Vifhite gave a Grecian dance with grace and dignity: a gay toe dance
was interpreted by Helen VVilcox, Eleanor Felty, and Audrey jonesg and
Maree lllusto gave a brilliant interpretation of the Spanish fandango. The
girls were coached by Miss l-lill and Miss Bradstreet, girls' physical education
" 'Docf .Iohnson's lNlinstrels," a clever skit presented by a group of boys,
received uproarous applause because of its antics and songs. "Carroll Craig's
Collegian Band" furnished orchestra music, and a quartette composed of
Emmett johnson, jack Keagle, Don Carr, and 'Percy Dyer gave several selec-
tions, The favorites were "Buddy" and "That Old Gang of Mine." Others
who took part were: Wfarren Littlelield, Llewellyn johnson, Rodney lllc-
Cauley, Lawrence Fay and Arthur Stormes.
Besides providing an evening,s amusement and pleasure. the show was a
success financially, as the profits amounted to approximately 25200, which is
to be used for funds for this G. 81 T. Annual.
OPEN HOUSE NIGHT
"Put your best foot forward" seemed to be the slogan of "Open House
Night" on Friday. December 6, when every department in the school endeav-
ored to show the results and activities of its work for the parents and others
lt was only natural that this year there should be greater interest shown
in the school by the parents, for this year has brought about more changes
than any previous one in the memory of students and present faculty, changes
in classes, hours, teachers, and administration.
From 7:15 to 8:45 classes were conducted just as in the day-time, and in
some classes display of the work was exhibited. The parents were escorted
from class to class by the student guides.
A program was presented in the assembly for the rest of the evening. and
such a crowd of parents and townspeople was present that the halls and even
the stairs were filled. The program follows:
1. Overture-High School Orchestra.
2. Address of XVelcome-Noel H. Garrison.
3. Greeting-Lucy Ritter.
4. Tarantella--Folk Dancing Class.
5. Songs-1. "The Stari' tjaines Rogersj.

l. "Shepherds and Maidens Fair."
2. "Soldiers' March."

lO. Music by I-ligh School Orchestra.
WILSON MEMORIAL EXERCISES
Perhaps the most impressive occasion of the year was the NVoodrow NVil-
son memorial assembly held in honor of the dead president on February 6
in the boys' gymnasium. This was the only time during the entire year that
the whole student body was crowded into the gymnasium: yet the students
formed a most orderly and a most responsive audience. The young people
and the faculty alike seemed to feel the solemnity of the occasion and to be
silent in reverence to the war president.
Mr. john G. Iliff, head of the Social Science Department, paid tribute to
Mr. XVilson's great personality, citing the three occasions on which he had
been fortunate enough to meet the great leader. Mr. Iliff said that IX-Ir. 'VVil-
son was a martyr to our nation, having died working for its betterment and
that of the world. "Persistent effort was one of the president's dominant
qualities," said Nr. Ilihf. "I-le never stopped until he achieved an end." Mr.
Iliff concluded by naming Wfoodrow XfVilson as the "modern world's Greatest
A former president of the Stockton American Legion, Mr. Leroy Johnson,
recited Rudyard Kipling's poem, "lf," and declared that Mr. VVilson's great-
ness was the result of the standards suggested in this poem: that if a man
lives an honorable, just life and is true to himself, he will meet with success.
Mr. McNoble, the third speaker, put XfVoodrow Wilsoii on a level with
Moses and jesus Christ as the three greatest men since history began.
Frank T. Smith, accompanied by Karl C. Brueck, sang two numbers, and
the student body sang "America" to close the assembly.
. lT01. -
One of the oldest customs of the school is the giving of a reception every
year to the girls of each entering freshman class. At this time they meet their
fellow-students and their own classmates. The occasion is sponsored by the
Associated Girl Students. This year, as usual, clever programs were arranged,
followed by dancing.
For the September freshman girls, a number of vaudeville acts were put on.
I-Ielen VVaite, as a modern "King Tut", was unwrapped by the most ungraceful
Fgyptian dancers, Ellen Cary, Irene Meyers, Frances VVilson, and Bernice
I-Iulen. A song by Aileen Dayton was followed by a battle between "short
skirts" and "long skirtsu in which the former triumphed.
After a saxophone solo by Irene Davis, "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean"
was parodied by Agnes McGee and Esther McCurdy. Eleanor Felty then
gave a solo toe dance which was enthusiastically encored. After this, the
nnal number, a "Backward Act", caused much merriment. The frosh, who
were distinguished by green hair ribbons, registered great amusement, and,
incidentally, much relief, for they had been warned of dire happenings at the
Something quite unusual and entertaining was presented at the February
reception. Betty Coflin had written a charming little play, called "XNhen
Dearest Dreams", about a little girl who dreamed that her dollies woke up
from twelve to one o'cloclt one night each year and were visited by the inhabi-
tants of XiVonderland and Mother Goose Land. The cast was: "Dearest",
lietty Coffin: "Mama Doll", 'lihelma Merrittg 'tFrench Doll", Irene Thorpe:
"Dancing Doll", l,aYerne lN'hite: "Sailor Doll", Gertrude Gillickg "black-iw
the-box", Helen Waite: "Raggedy Ann" and "Raggedy Andy", Marie Hands

The Committee for Entertainment for the year was composed of: Eliza-
beth Gibbens tchairmanj, Betty Coffin, Bernice Hilton, Gertrude Gillick,
-Iessie Grunsky, Marjorie Taylor, Miss llill, and Miss XVilliams.
THROUGH THE GREEN DOOR
Pink and blue rabbits frisking amid flowers of grotesque shape and hue
unknown to botany Hanking the mysterious looking green door before which
stood a white marble nymph garlanded with flowers and supported by two
garland-bearers, formed the setting for the original dance-drama, "Through
'l'he Green Door," arranged by Miss Hill and furnished a unique part of the
Annual Spring Festival of the Department of Physical Education for girls.
'llhe program was presented March 22 in the boys' gymnasium under the
direction of Miss Annabel Bradstreet and Miss Elizabeth Hill, girls' physical
education instructors, and sponsored by the Girls' Association.
u,iiil1'Ollgl1 'lihe Green Door" is the story of Rin-Tin and Fleurette, two
lovers, who, after passing through a strangely inviting green door, Find a
quaint garden where Rin-'llin falls in love with the marble nymph, and Fleu-
rette goes away jealous and unhappy. The nymph then comes to life, dances
with Rin-Tin, and calls upon Potted Plants, Flowers, Rabbits, and the Pillars
of the Door to dance for him. 'lihen she returns to her pedestal, becomes
marble again, and leaves Rin-'llin to his sorrow. His true love Fleurette then
returns, and they dance off happy.
Part I and lll of the program consisted of many interpretive, character,
and folk dances in native and colorful costumes. These dances were the work
of members of the advanced Folk Dancing Class, and a group of freshmen
"THROUGH THE GREEN DOOR"
from the College of the Pacific. All of the folk dancing was characterized by
that vigor, abandonment, and joyousness which typified the "dances of the
peoplef' Miss Pahl's art classes designed and painted the scenery, and Rena
Passovoy of the Dramatic VX-'orkshop had charge of the costuining. A poster
contest was held, and prizes of two dollars and one dollar were awarded to
Ruth Satterlee and Olive Nevins respectively for the best and second-best

As Stockton High grows in size it also grows in renown. It is known now
not only in athletic circles, but in oratory. S. l-l. S. is now tied for third place
with Fresno in the Central California lnterseholastic Public Speaking League,
won third place in the Central California Extemporaneous contest and second
place in the Central California Oratorical contest.
For the last few years great interest has been shown in these activities.
Many students have made some form of public speaking their activity and
by doing so, have helped to make a name for Stockton High School. ln order
to stimulate and promote interest in this type of activity, it was decided last
year to award some token or recognition to those students who excel in them.
.X gold ring was hnally decided upon, so made that pearls could be added as
further honors were won.
The requirements necessary for a debater to win a ring are to participate
in two interscholastic debates and win one of them. For every further debate
won, a pearl is added. 'l'hose debaters who have won the highest honors are
Clitffton lfrisbie and Edwin Mayall. who have both earned a ring with two
pearls. Palmer Goldsberry, Helen Wfaite, and Vlfilliam lrvine have all won
The highest honors ever 'won by a Stockton lligh School orator, were won
by 'lfliilip Cavalero this year. Philip won second place in the league contest.
ln the constitution contest he won first place in both the County and Central
California meets, and third place in the Northern Central California meet.
The only other orator who has won a ring is Earl Macllonald, who won
the lfxtemporaneous .Public Speaking Contest in '23,
'l'his year thc debating and public speaking classes have grown, and boast
several juniors. This is promising for S. I-l. S. next year as she will have
experienced dcbatcrs and orators with whom to begin interscholastic debates.
Philip Cavalero, called by many "the best speaker ever produced in Stock-
ton High Schoolf' First won honors for his school in the annual Externporane-
ous contest held at Modesto on December 14. He was awarded third place
among nine participating schools. He unfortunately drew the subject he knew
least about, as well as the most uninteresting, "The Unification of Italy."
ln spite of the handicap of his difficult subject and his inexperience, Cava-
lero came within two points of second place. Gerald Kennedy of Modesto,
speaking on "Harding, the Over-worked President," took first place, while
Ralph "Veal of Madera, whose topic was "'l'he ltalian Situation," won second
'lihe nine competing schools were: l'lacerville, Stockton. Fresno, Madera,
Manteca, Modesto, Turlock, Sacramento, and W'oodland. The judges were:
Professor flI'erstein of the University of California, Dr. lNillard Smith of Mills
College, and Mrs. Dennit of Oakland. X-Vhile the judges were making their
decisions, stunts were presented by the different schools. Stephen Arata and
George Harkness gave a mimic speaking contest for Stockton, the Turlock
"Bow-wowsl' gave a musical stunt, Modesto gave a fake movie stunt, and
Manteca presented a dancing act.
NATIONAL CONSTITUTION CONTEST
Stockton went as far as the Northern California finals in the National Con-
stitutional Oratorical contest conducted in this district under the auspices of
the San lfrancisco Chronicle. In the County contest, held in the old assembly
on April 25, Stockton's two representatives. Philip Cavalero and Andy Hay-
ford, respectively won first and second place. Cavalero spoke on "The Con-
st'tution." and llayfordls topic was "Marshall and the Constitution."
Ray XVilliamson of Ilscalon won third place and Nina Nay Reed of the
same town took fourth. lloth spoke on "The Constitution." Fifth place went
to 'llonl Fuller, who, like l-layford. spoke on "lXfarshall and the Constitution."
fly virtue of his victory in the County contest, Cavalero went on to the
Central contest, held at Modesto on May 4, where he won first place over
Gerald Kennedy of ltlodcsto, who had defeated him the night betore. Cava-
lero repeated his oration on "The Constitution," while Kennedy spoke on
"lXlarshall and the Constitution," Each speaker's topic was the same one he
had the preceding' evening, so Cavalero's come-back was quite remarkable.
'I'he other speakers and their places were: third, Roy Schmalle of Fresno:
fourth, Robert P. fJ'.llrien of Santa Clara .l'1'eparatory School 3 and fifth, Nafads-
worth Yiney of Santa Cruz lligh. The last three all spoke on t'The Constitu-
After winning' the Central contest, Cavalero gave his oration a week later
at the Galileo High School in San Francisco, where he was awarded third
place. john O'Kane of Sacred Heart ,High and 'Fabytha Anderson ot Lowell
lligh took tirst and second places respectively.
Besides the honor Philip Cavalero brought to his school and himself, he
was rewarded at the County contest by a prize of twenty-tive dollars and at
the Northern contest by fifty dollars.
Keeping' up the school's, as well as his own, reputation on the platform of
oratory, l'hilip Cavalcro carried oft second honors in the Central California
filratorical contest at Sacramento on May 3. Displaying remarkable ora-
torical ability, he kept his audience spellbound for the entire duration of his
speech. llc was narrowly defeated by Gerald Kennedy of Modesto, whom he
overcame. however, in a contest the next evening. Cavalero spoke on "The
Constitution" and Kennedy on "Marshall and the Constitution."
Lorraine Reeder of Oakdale was awarded third place for her Speech, "The
Vanishing American." Lewis Clark of Madera, speaking on "The Constitution
of .'Xmerica1" and Ruth Seamon of Sacramento, who delivered, "XfVashington
and the Constitution," won fourth and fifth place respectively.
Miss M. U. Howell, league president, presided over the contest and intro-
duced the speakers. Before the contest a banquet was given for the coaches
and contestants. After the speeches stunts were put on by the schools repre-

WORLD COURT DEBATE
The debating season o mened on November 2 with a debate between Stock-
ton and Sacramento at Stockton, and between Stockton and Oakdale at Oak-
dale. Sacramento was defeated with a two to one decision by Edwin Mayall
and Clititton lirisbie, while Helen VVaite and VVilliam lrvine were overcome
by Oakdale by the same score. 'l'he proposition debated was: Resolved, That
the United States should adhere to the Wforld Court as outlined in the
'l'he Sacramento-Stockton debate, held in the assembly hall, before a good
audience, was chiefly noted for its remarkable issue clash and the undoubted
superiority of the Stockton speakers. The Sacramento debaters were Miss
Gladie Young and Mr. Beverly M.cAnear. In the rebuttals, with the experi-
ence of three debates behind them, Mayall and Frisbie literally buried their
opponents in an avalanche of refutation.
The Oakdale debate, upon the same question, which resulted in a two to
one decision against Stockton, was a hotly contested event in which Helen
XX'aite and XX'illiam Irvine very nearly overcame their opponents, Miss Caro-
line Miler and Mr. Edward Smith, being superior both in material and deliv-
ery: but a clever conclusion in the last rebuttal given by Miss Miler was,
according to one of the judges, the winning element.
The Soldiers' Bonus Debate
Stockton again broke even in the second league debate with San .lose and
Manteca on February 21. San .lose was defeated at Stockton three to nothing
by Mayall and Frisbie, who debated together tor the third time: while Man-
teca won from the 'l'arzan negatives, Palmer Goldsberry and XN'illiai'n Irvine,
by the same score.
'l'he San ,lose speakers, Robert Hall and james McDermott, were very
good. straightforward debaters. well versed in the ethics and rules of this
activity. VVhat probably lost them the debate was the conceding of the Finan-
cial issue in the proposition: Resolved, That Congress should pass a bill
granting adjusted compensation to all VVorld Wfar veterans. This debate was
the third consecutive victory for the 'Frisbie-Mayall combination.
At Manteca, the Stockton negatives, Palmer Goldsberry and VVilliam
lrvine, battled valiantly for a victory, but were defeated three to nothing.
lioth of the boys had good logical speeches, and presented their arguments in
a masterly manner. Manteca was represented by Miss Lillian Pugh and Miss
The McNary-Haugen Debate
Victory crowned the efforts of both Stockton teams in the last league
debate of the year, held on April 10, with Madera and Fresno as opponents.
Madera was downed by the local afhrrnatives, NVilliam Trivelpiece and
Frisbie, by a two to one decision : while the negatives, Palmer Goldsberry and
Edwin Mayall, journeyed to Fresno to win from that school by the same
score. The question debated was: "Resolved, That Congress should pass
the McNary-Haugen bill," a relief measure for the northwest wheat growers.
By defeating these two schools, the Tarzan linguists showed that they
had reached a high degree of perfection, for Madera and Fresno were con-
sidered the strongest schools in the league. This also made the iirst double
victory for Stockton in the last two years, something that will make those
who achieved it remembered in the history of the school. The Madera nega-
tives, Ralph Mitchell and Ralph Teal, had practically the same issues as the
Stockton team, but were not so well prepared as Trivelpiece and Frisbie. As
all of the speakers were experienced debaters, the rebuttals were exceedingly
The Fresno debate was very similar to the one with Madera, and, as in
Stockton, it was the rebuttals that decided the day for the Blues. The Fresno
talkers, X,Villiam johnson and Sidney Madden, were good debaters, but were
careless in quoting their opponents. Goldsberry and Mayall more than held
their own in the constructive speeches, but in the rebuttals they showed their
knowledge of debating by carefully backing up their main arguments with
conclusive proof and logic. Although this was the last league debate of the
year, one more debate, either in class or with another school, was to be held
before the year ended. i
Sophomore debating was again inaugurated this year and was fairly suc-
cessful, considering the fact that there was no regular class for this work,
which made it an outside activity. A minor league of which the Hrst group
was called "Stockton Center" was formed between the interested schools for
the purpose of promoting sophomore debating. There are four schools in
this league: Sacramento, Manteca, Modesto, and Stockton. Turlock and
'Wloodland were about to become members when the annual went to press.
Much credit is due to the committee which practically formed this league and
whose members are: Miss Osborn fchairmanj, Miss Manske, Miss Adelle
Howell, and Mr. NVeber,
On December 7 the Stockton sophomores met Sacramento and succeeded
in winning at that city, but lost at Stockton. The team that went to Sacra-
mento was Sam Sherman and VVilliam Trivelpiece, while the home team was
composed of Paula VVei-nstein and Ernest Lonsdale. Although Stockton won
at Sacramento, S. H. S. lost the debate as a whole, for a point system of judg-
ing was used in which the totals of both debates gave the final results.
At Sacramento the rebuttals proved to be the most interesting part of the
debate, which was on the proposition: Resolved, That the oflice of vice-
president of the United States should be abolished. According to Mr. WelJe1',
who accompanied the team, the refutation was a battle to the last ditch, in
which challenges were issued and taken, and analogies offered and rejected.
The debate at Stockton was equally interesting and showed that the local
speakers, .Paula XVeinstein and Ernest Lonsdale, had an abundance of mate-
rial, and knew how to use it. The judges were: Senator Boggs, Attorney
Forslund, and Reverend Montgomery.
'l'he second semester debate on the question: Resolved, 'lfhat Ford's
Mussel Shoals Plan as submitted in the McKenzie bill should be accepted by
Congress, was upheld by Vesta Brown and Meyer Corren, and opposed by
Lola liellouomini and XVade Stewart. lt had not taken place when the annual
went to press, but excellent preparation was being made.
For two consecutive years, sophomore debating has flourished in Stockton
,l ligh, and it is hoped it will continue to do so, for it is from the ranks of these
young Solons that the future league debaters are chosen.

I nn, U dt,
Retrospection is the key note of a department of this kind, as it is in the
feature columns of many of the newspapers throughout the country. In our
own Stockton Record there appears every evening, under the caption of
"Twenty Years .-Xgo '.l1oday," little remembrances of the past, and even the
San Francisco Chronicle, one of the leading California dailies, prints a similar
lt is the purpose ol this department of the animal to tell of the accomplish-
ments of some of those who have graduated and are now out in the world
doing things of which Stockton 'High is justly proud. ln order to secure a
more vivid picture of the happenings of yesterday, several members of the
alumni, chosen at random, were asked to tell of their high school life as they
remember it, and what they say relative to their own class appears further
along in the records of the classes.
Let us start in with the class of 1870 and look over the records made by
some of the graduates of our institution. In this class there were such people
as Charles E. Grunsky, who is now city engineer for the city of San Francisco,
and who also does considerable work for the U. S. Government Geological
Survey. Mr. Grunsky's twin sister, Lottie E. Grunsky, also graduated with
this class. She taught in the public schools of Stockton for fifty years and in
appreciation of her work, one of the buildings in the city's school system bears
the name of the "Lottie Grunsky School."
Proceeding to the class of 1881 we iind a number of former students who
are taking leading roles in the drama of life. Of this class, there is A. lil.
Ashley, who is a prominent attorney in Stockton at the present time. In a
written statement from Nr. Ashley, high school life in his time is pictured.
lle tells ol the building of the lirst unit of our school buildings. He also says,
"X'Ve had nothing dramatic when l, went to school except when George Catts
mounted the eight-inch platform that was usually occupied by the ever watch-
ful teacher and thrilled us with 'The Dying Gladiator' or some other old
Roman sensation." Wfhen speaking ol the various advances that have been
made since his time, he said, "'. llhe only things that flew were tongues and
time. Wie were advised to hold thc iirst and not waste the latter." Mr. Ash-
ley believes that great strides have been made in every line of high school
Wfhen asked for a message from the class of 1882, Fred I. Yost of Yost-
Dohrmann Company wrote the following letter to the present students of
Stockton High School:
"Schools, teachers, andpupils surely have changed in the past forty-two
years. As I look at a photograph of my graduating class of 1882 and com-
pare it with the photographs taken at the present time, I think of two things:
first, the number of graduates, and second, their appearance. In our graduat-
ing class of '82 there were only fourteen students: five boys and nine girls.
The men on the faculty wore long beards and the women long hair. Compar-
ing them with the teachers of today with their smooth shaven faces and bobbed
hair, one must admit that they are advancing with the schools. I have been
informed that this year's class of 1924 is composed of over two hundred stu-
dents who are planning to graduate. lf the classes increase at this rate, as
they surely will, it will soon become necessary for us to build another high
school. Irlere's hoping that you will continue to grow and improve."
-Fred I. Yost, Class of '82.
Five years more bring us to the class of which Charles Theodore Vogel-
sang was a prominent member. This was the class of 1386. Mr. Vogelsang
is at present a high official in the United States Navy.
Next year, in 1887, Mary L. I-I. Arnold, now Dr. Snow, graduated. She
taught in Stockton I-Iigh School for a number of years, and then went to New
York, where she is now a noted X-Ray physician.
The passing of ten more eventful years presents us with the record of the
graduation of Richard W'alton Tully, today a famous playwright, whose
works we often see interpreted on both the stage and the screen. Some of his
productions are: "The Strenuous Life," ",l.3ird of Paradise," "Omar, the
Tentmakerf' and his screen version of Rex l'3each's "Flowing Gold."
The "Yost Brothersf' Charles of '90 and Henry of '01, are now in the men's
furnishing business in Stockton.
From the class of 1903 there is Adolph Anderson, instructor of English in
the University of California. There also came from this class a girl who was
known to her classmates as Minnie Rutherford, now Mrs. W. Fitzgerald, who
was president of the California VVomen's Federated Clubs last year and the
Owen Maisel and VVill Friedberger were among the graduates of the class
of 1904. Owen Maisel is the owner of the Maisel Meat Company, and Will
Friedberger is head physician at the San Joaquin General Hospital.
The class of 1905 claims Dr. Raymond T. McGurk.
Miss Grace Steinbeck, who graduated in 1906, is now in Foo Chow, China,
doing Y. W, C. A. work.
Three members of our present and former faculty, Amy Pahl, Grace
Fowler, and Lily Cliberou, all graduated from Stockton I-Iigh School in the
class of 1907. Earl R. Hawley, who served in the late war as a captain and
is now postmaster of Stockton, also graduated with this class.
Forrest Single, now a prominent attorney in New York, was a member of
the class of 1909.
Another alumnus who has made a name for himself is Ralph Eaton, who
is from the class of 1910. Mr. Eaton is at present Professor of Mathematics
at Harvard University. 1-Ie has written a book on philosophy.
Nelson james, known as "jack" james to the sport fans, is sporting editor
of the San Francisco Examiner. I-Ie graduated from Stockton High in 1911.
Nineteen hundred and thirteen brought forth two notables, Stanton Cob-
lentz and Karl Ross. Coblentz is art critic and book reviewer on the "New
'York 'llimesl' and has written several books of poems. Karl Ross lost his
life in the VVorld Wfarg the local chapter of the American Legion was named
The class of 1914- boasts of Laurance N. Pease, who is today head of the
Commercial Department of Stockton High School.
'llwo members of the class of 1915 are in business together in Stockton
under the firm name of limil Gumpert and Harry lvlazzera, attorneys.
Ralph Herring was given us by the class of 1916. He is a teacher in the
vocational department now.
From the class of 1917 came jack Raggio who is afhliated with the Com-
mercial and Savings Bank. Frank VV. Quinn also graduated with this class.
VVhen asked what he remembered most in his high school life, he oHered the
following items that he thought would bring pleasant memories to those who
were in his class:
"lt was in this period that a quiet reserved young lady became a member
of the local faculty and read 'Aunt Minerva' and ivvlllllllll Greenhill' to those
students who are now heads of families. Miss Nclnnes is now dean of girls
in Stockton .High School.
"'llhe great structural program which gave us our gymnasium, manual arts,
and science buildings was nearing completion.
"A few names of faculty members who are not with the schools any more
will also bring back fond memories. 'llhey are: Iliff, Howes, Goodwin,
Abernathy, lXf'lCxVl1till'tC1', and Barzee.
mln this same year of 1917 there arose the famed argument over the fra-
ternity and sorority problem in Stockton High Schoolf'
Ray Dunne, a lawyer, and Margaret Lauxen and Helen VVurster, both Phi
Beta Kappa members Qflreek letter society for those making high scholarship
records in a universityj were active in the affairs of the class of 1918. Flora
NcDiarmid Ellis, the society editor on the Stockton Record, was also a gradu-
ate of this class.
Lilien Eberhard and Gertrude Robbins, both of the class of 1919, are now
employed as oflice assistants.
Joseph Dietrich of 1920 is the editor of the Daily Californian, official news
organ of the state university. 'l"hrough the columns of his paper he has been
trying to effect several reforms among the university students.
Among the class members of 1921 there are students who have made
records in swimming, boxing, newspaper work, and nursing. Philip Baxter
is a celebrated tank man on the University of Southern California squadg
Fred Garner held the intercollegiate middleweight championship at the Uni-
versity of California, and Mona Campbell, Melva Kane, and Mildred Norcross
are all training to be nurses.
Many of the members of the class of '22 are now attending some college.
Alvin Trivelpiece, who was "short-term" editor of the weekly Guard and
Tackle during this year, is attending the College of Pacific. "Al" is publicity
man for the college sports, and his writings appear in the local paper, the San
jose Mercury Herald, Fresno Republican, and sometimes in the San Fran-
cisco papers. Reginald Tumelty, who made many records on the Tarzan tank
team, now behind the counter in the Bank of iltaly. The "Sacramento Bee"
claims Francis Smith as a "cub" reporter.
'llhe memorable class of 1923 is still in its infancy. The sands of time will
tell those who pass in the years to come what the students in this group
accomplish. 'llhe only thing that can be said about them is that they are
starting out on the long road for themselves. "Swede" Patten, the Irish
athletic star of this class, is attending the University of Arizona. He played
on the varsity basket hall team while in high school, made the college team in
his freshman year, and also broke the state record in the SSO-yard event in a
recent track meet in the southern state. Virginia Gall, who was news editor
on last year's G. K T., is working for the Dohrmann-VVolf agency as an office
assistant. She was asked what she remembered most of her four years in
S. H. S. and answered with the following:
"XYheu interesting things are happening at high school every day, it is
hard to write of any one incident more important than the others. Probably
the event that stands out most strongly in my memory was the crew race
held in San Francisco last year between the various San Francisco girls' crews
and the Stockton girls' oar team, inasmuch as it was the lirst time that a girls'
crew had ever competed in an out-of-town meet. Four boats competed, and
the Stockton crew was awarded second placefl
This year another class of hopefuls is to be turned loose upon the world
by old Dame High School, and they will no doubt prove themselves worthy
of the name of graduates of Stockton High and bring additional fame to the
school by their eHorts and achievements. A
This year Stockton lligh School has another scholarship to award along
with the live of previous years. This makes a total of six cash scholarships to
be awarded to the most deserving seniors every year. The scholarships are
generally awarded by the faculty on the basis of scholarship, character, and

The amount of one hundred and twenty dollars is given annually to the most
deserving member of the senior class on the same basis as the other scholar-
ships. This money is in the nature ot a loan, similar to the Rotary Club
scholarship, in that the recipient returns the money to the Kiwanis Club
Scholarship fund without interest after he has entered business, This scholar-
ship is for the lirst year's tuition in the College of the Pacilic. The winner
of this scholarship was Vincent Johanson, class of 1923.
DRAMATIC CLUB PLAY
Santa Claus in the form of "Fat" Merchasin climbed down the chimney
and handed out a big stick of candy to every member of the Dramatic Club
at the monthly meeting just before Christmas vacation. It was all in the
course of the play "On Christmas Eve," which was the feature of the program
and the realistic appearance of the old saint was probably the biggest surprise
of the day. The remainder of the cast included the following: "Little Girl,"
Doris Curtisg "VVendy," Sadie Bursteing "Alice," Elizabeth Blackmumg
"Robinson Crusoe," john Deringg "Boy of the North VVind," Norris Reb-
holtzg "Traveler from 'Bagdad," Mario Pigozzig "Hansel," Nathen Merehasing
"Gretel," Mary Ashlandg and Little Girl's Mother, Olive Morris. The coach-
ing was done by Alberta Reibenstein, and the lighting was taken over by
Edwin Mayall, both members of the Dramatic W'orkshop.

The largest crowd that has tilled the old auditorium for a student dramatic
production this year assembled there on the night of March 6, the occasion
bei11g the presentation of the Commercial Department play, "Clarence,"
This production was a clever four-act comedy centering around Clarence,
a 1'Ctl1l'11CCl soldier, who ,becomes established as a general handyman in a
wealthy family. Clarence is a "kindly soul," who in the course of the play,
straightens out the family love affairs and in his turn falls in love with the
The play was one of Booth Tarkington's best comedies, a type of drama
for which he is famous, and the excellent manner in which it was presented
proves that Stockton High School can well be proud of the dramatic ability
of her commercial students.
The cast was particularly well chosen, the fact that a number of them had
had previous dramatic experience insured the success of the play. They were:
Marian Yan Gilderg chief electrician, Reginald Gianellig property manager,
Palmer Goldsberryg librarian, Madge Millsg custodian of costumes, Rena
The drama class, the Dramatic Club, tl1e commercial English classes. tl1e
oral expression class, and the senior class all contributed their share of drama
in various productions and helped greatly i11 making dramatics an important
activity in Stockton High School.
So, when the hnal curtain has been rung down on tl1e last of the season's
productions, it will be found that a record has been left wl1ich may be envied
by future aspiring dramatists.

"THE TRYSTING PLACE"
The hrst Dramatic Wforkshop production of the year, "The 'llrysting Place"
by Booth 'l'arkington, was presented to the students duri11g adviser periods
on October 10 and ll. Admission was free, the purpose of the play being to
advertise the sale of season drama tickets. The choice of play was a happy
one, for it was an exceedingly clever, distinctly modern, and hilariously funny
one-act comedy, from the pen of one of the foremost American playwrights,
the creator of "Seventeen" and "Clarence,'.
A double cast worked on the play in :1 competitive system of rehearsals
so as to give the students more experience and more opportunities along
dramatic lines. 'lioth casts did splendid work, and it was with great difh-
culty that Miss NVright selected the following group for the final presenta-
tion: "Mrs, Curtis," l,eona Bridge and Esther McCu1-dy: "Lancelot Briggs,"
Wfilliam 'llrivelpiece and Valmer Goldsberryg "Mrs l'31'iggs," Allene llaytong
"Jessie l11riggs," Ruth Parker: "Rupert Smith," Eddie Libhartg "Mit Ingolds-
by," lfdwin Mayall: f'Stranger's Voice," .Iohn 'Burke and Cecil Demaree.
'l'he plot lliltl many humorous incidents and comical situations revolving
around the struggles of a love-sick youth to disentangle himself from the
apron strings of his toosadoring mother who is also love-sick but hates to
admit it. Judging from the gales of laughter which broke forth from the old
auditorium on those two mornings, the play was most successfully and
"YOU AND I"
judging from the gales of laughter and storms of applause, the lirst Dra-
matic XN'orkshop play of the season, "You and I," by Philip Barry, presented
November 22 and 23, was a decided success.
The story is of a prosperous soap-maker, Maitland X'Vhite, who gives up
his business to take up his long cherished anibition-painting-and becomes
a poor artist. Ricky, his son, gives promise of being a famed architect but
wants to stop studying to marry Ronny Duane. Ronny, in a spirit of self-
sacrihce, then jilts Ricky: Matey paints his first pictureg and things begin
to happen. ln the end, as usual, Ricky and Ronny are brought together
againg a11d in the doing of it, a strong lesson is given out to the audience.
UYOU AND F
Palmer Goldsberry, who took the most difficult role of the play-that of
Natey---delighted everyone with his dramatic interpretation of the trying
Alberta Reibenstein as the modern girl, Ronny, played her part excep-
tionally wcll and portrayed the varying emotions with such talent as to insure
her success in any future dramatic production.
Elizabeth Gibbens surprised everyone with her acting as the mother. She
had not had much experience, and her ability to execute the role as she did
was a revelation.
john Burke lived up to his reputation and delighted the audience with
his portrayal of a man of the world. John's specialty is character roles.
Marian Van Gilder as the pretty little maid who aspired to be like her
mistress was clever, and deserves much credit for her good acting.
Edwin Mayall portrayed the part of the modern young man, Ricky, with
the confidence and assurance which was necessary to make it a success.
VVilliam 'Vrivelpiece pleased everyone in the role of the alert, successful,
'llhe play was excellent because of its humorous, yet serious, portrayal of
a problem which faces many young people and of the frank but sincerely fine
character of many modern young folks. Some of the humor was lost upon
the audience because of a quickening of speech on the part of some of the
players and the prolonged laughter of the audience.
The scenery and lighting was very effective for their delightful color in
the lirst act and the attractive skylight in the second and third acts. The
costumes were all modern with the exception of those of the last act, which
gave variety, it being the preparation for a fancy dress party.
The play was also a financial success. All together about fifty dollars
were taken in at the door, besides the money for tickets which had been
previously sold at school. -
Stately minuets, sweet Irish love songs, quaint Irish costumes, and beauti-
ful lighting eH'ects, greeted the audiences on Thursday afternoon and Friday
night, ,lmiuai-y 24 and 25, when Marie Josephine VVarrcn's delightful three-act
drama, "The 'llwig U"l'horn", was presented by the drama class with the aid
nf the Drainatic NVorkshop.
Quaint, colorful, and beautiful are the words which best describe this play
which centers around the experiences of Oonah, a winsome young girl, who
hails from Dublin, and who is suddenly forced to choose between a practical
and idealistic lover. How Oonah chooses, how she unconsciously brings a
curse upon herself and her grandmother's house, and how the undying love
of her idealistic suitor frees her from the curse, were all revealed in a most
entertaining and interesting manner.
A clever feature of the play was the dances presented by the cast and pre-
pared by Miss Hill, girls' physical director. First, a group of Irish boys and
girls danced an Irish reel 1 then, an elusive little fairy presented a lovely fairy
dance: and last, two principals in the cast glided through a stately minuet.
The cast included the following: Oonah, Betty Coffing Aengus Arann,
Mario Pigozzig Aileel, the poet, Reginald Gianellig Nessa, Elizabeth Dough-
erty: Mauruya, Ravella Platekg Father Brian, Cecil Demareeg Kathleen, Mae
Petzingerg Sheila, Dorothy I-ledgerg Finula, Alice Rowan, Martin, Ovid
Ritterg 'I'rumaus, Dorothy Catching: Fairy Dorothy Evansg Sheamus, Lois
Bakerg Nora, La Vergne Wfhiteg and the Stranger, Ovid Ritter.
As an added attraction, "Two Maids and a King", a one-act fantasy by
Edna St. Vincent Millay, was staged as the curtain-raiser. This little play
had to do with that element which enters into life to a large extent, namely,
chance. The cast included: King, jane VVillardg Chance, Eleanor Hancock,
Prologue, Jessie 1-lallg Tidy, Naomi Lewis, Untidy, Gladys Karns.
A great deal of credit is due Miss Pahl and her art classes for the beautiful
and original costume designs and stage settings used in both plays.
DRAMATIC WORKSHOP, 1923-1924 DRAMATIC SEASON
"One of the most successful dramatic seasons Stockton High School has
ever had"-that was the statement of a prominent clubwoman of Stockton
upon discussing the activities of the Dramatic Vtforkshop for the past season 2
and it probably echoes the thoughts of many people, both students and towns-
people, who have had the pleasure of viewing the dramatic work presented by
the students this year.
The spirit of co-operation and the development of initiative have always
been emphasized by Miss Carrie D. XtVright, dramatics teacher, and it was
due to her eitorts along these lines that success and fame were brought to
the Dramatic XNyOI'kSl'1OlD. This organization was incorporated in the course
of study in the fall of 1921, and has progressed so rapidly that now it is given
the rating of a two-period laboratory subject. In co-operating with other
organizations, the X!VOTkSl101J has been particularly helpful this year, having
given its aid to the Tacky Day Circus, the debating class, the Commercial
Department play, the Spring Festival, the Oratorical Contest, the senior play,
and various women's clubs i11 Stockton. -
Due to the tact that Miss Wfright was called to the East by the death of
her mother, the Dramatic VVorkshop postponed a group of plays which were
to have been given in February and March, however, the class work continued
under a commission form of student government established by Miss Wriglit
at the beginning of the fall semester. The officers then were: chief commis-
sioner. Edwin Mayall, librarians, Alberta Reibenstein Elllfl Madge Millsg
publicity commissioner, Palmer Goldsberryg hospitality commissioner, Regi-
nald Gianellig scenery commissioner, Nathan Merchasing tool commissioner,
Eddie Libhartg art commissioners, Leona Bridge and Frances Kitt. At the
beginning of the spring semester the following officers, who carried out the
regular work during Miss VVright's absence were appointed: chief commis-

"Captain fXpplejack," presented by the seniors on April 4 as their play of
the year, was a most successful production. This modern comedy, full of
witty lines and clever situations. was given life by the excellent choice of cast
and the intelligent coaching of Mr. C. Iliff.
ln the title role, Palmer Goldsbcrry did the -bcst work of his lengthy
career in high school dramatics. lt was evident that his characterization of
this dual role came from hard study of the part and much dramatic experience
as a member of the Dramatic NN-iorkshop.
As Poppy liaire, the heroine, Dorothy Quinn proved quite a delight to
her audience. The part was also dual, as were most of the principal roles.
and called for the most diiiicult acting ever attempted by Dorothy.
Helen XVaite, as the assumed .Xnna Valeska, Russian dancer, and as
Gladys, a crook, portrayed the role so realistically that no one guessed it was
her lirst appearance in a leading role in S. H. S. dramatics.
The part of Ivan liorolski, the villain, was exceptionally well taken by
Robert Harry who has had previous experience in that type of role in opera
Perhaps the most difficult part in the play was that of ,-'Xunt Agatha, and
so well was it characterized by :Xlberta Reibenstein, who has also had much
dramatic training, that many considered her acting to have added a touch of
professionalism to the performance.
Edwin Mayall, who has had leads in many Dramatic 'X-Vorkshop produc-
tions. made a line old Lush, the butler of the house. As Mr. and Mrs. Ven-
gard, liarl MacDonald and Hazel Kelley distinguished themselves by the
excellence of their portrayals. Earl, who later appeared as a Chinese bos'n,
caused a constant peal of laughter throughout the house. The pirates, whose
parts were taken by Lawrence Meier, Stephen Arata, Orrin Haynes, Frank
Berry, Eddie Libhart, and Herbert Gunther, lent atmosphere to the scene.
Excellent management and extensive advertising made "Captain Apple-
iack" the linancial success that it was, and many 'felt that the seniors were
aided a great deal by being able to present their play in the completed audi-

"JOINT OWNERS IN SPAIN"
"joint Owners in Spain" was the clever little playlet that filled in the Wait
for the decision of the judges at the Marlera-Stockton debate on April 10.
The setting of the play was an old ladies' home in Spain, and the plot dealt
with two old ladies who were both so disagreeable that no one could live with
them. As a last resort they were put in the same room and solved their prob-
lem by living together very happily.
There were but four persons in this somewhat pathetic play, and some very
good character work was done by them as the part of a cranky, whining old
lady is not always an easy one to portray. Marian Van Gilder as Mrs. Blair
showed especially hue work, and Gladys Klump as Miss Dyer, Marian Cox
as Mrs. Fullerton, and .-Xllene Dayton as Mrs. Mitchell showed a great under-
standing of their parts and gave the desired atmosphere to the playlet.
3 S 9.
To the sophomore class of 'Z-l goes the credit of making their play, "The
Boomerang," which was given ini the new auditorium on April 2-l, one of the
biggest dramatic and financial successes in the history of Stockton High
"The Boomerang" is a modern three-act comedy which possesses the
necessary elements of appeal to a present-day audience. The settings, costum-
ing, and lighting were excellent, and the acting far surpassed that of the usual
amateur performance. W
'l he line voice, stage-presence, and dramatic understanding of Paul Harri-
son enabled him to handle the part of "lJr. Summer" in an almost professional
manner. john lluniphreys, as "Und X'Voodbi'idgc." showed unusual talent in
portraying a difficult and strenuous role. Carmel Gruss, with her poise and
her sweet. pleasing voice. gave. an excellent portrayal of "Virginia Xelviaf'
The acting of Eleanor Thorp showed dramatic linish and mastery of a very
difiicult part. that of Mrs. W'ooclbridge. Ruby Tremain, as "Grace Tylerf

"THE BREWING OF BRAINS"
"Are brains a natural gilt, or can they be brewed by a wise woman P"
This was the question the audience was asked at the Oratorical Contest on
April 25, while they witnessed the mysterious play, "The Hrewing of Brains,"
as they waited for the judges' decision.
Vlfitchcraft was the characteristic element of this one-act play. The set-
ting was in the cottage of the HVVlSC-X'VO1'l18.l'l.U The plot was the story of a
boy who came to the old, wise woman for "the brewing of brains," but instead
of brains he found love waiting for him. Three people from the Vlforkshop
prepared the play and deserve much credit for a successful performance.
They were Reginald Gianelli, who took the part of the boy, "Durlock,'5 Madge
Mills, who took the part of the girl, "Elsbeth"g and Elizabeth Evans, who
portrayed the wise woman.
, "THE RED MILL"
"You Never Can Tell About a VVoman," "A WVidow Has lNays," "l Waiit
You to Marry Me," "Because You're You"-these are some of the song hits
from "The Red Mill," this year's opera, given in the auditorium, May 9 and 10,
which indicate the main theme-love. Romantic and yet humorous, with
colorful costumes and settings, catchy melodies, and clever lines, the produc-
tion was ideally suited both to cast and audience.
Picturesque Holland was the setting, and the adventures of two Americans,
"Conn Kidder and "Kid" Connor, formed the main plot. These two resource-
ful travelers, who disguised themselves as Italian street-singers to avoid pay-
ing their board bill, were played by Don Carr and Herbert Gunther. Lily
Gannon was exceptionally charming in the part of "Gretchen," the heroine,
and lflarry McKee made a great success of "Captain Dorris Von Damm", her
lover. "Tina", the inn-keeperls daughter, was played by Gertrude Gillick,
who made an adorable Dutch flapper. "Bertha", the fascinating widow,
seemed especially suited to Dorothy Eproson, and Irene Thorpe was equally
hne as the "Countess de la Fere". There were live other male leads: Regi-
nald Gianelli as 'Alon Van Borkem", Earl McDonald as "Franz", VVilliam
Vlfoodford as "VVilhelm", Percy Dyer as "The Governor of Zeelandu, and
Huntley Haight as "Joshua Pennefeather". These roles were all ably taken,
and showed hard work and real talent on the part of the students.
Too much praise cannot be given the coaches of this production. Mr.
Holland Frazee, head of the Music Department, as music director, and Mrs.
Frazee as dramatic coach, both gave much effort, time, and thought to making
it a success. Miss Manske, as costume manager, ably handled a very im-
portant part of the work. Students, too, were active in making the opera
successful: Marshall Turner was business manager with Mr. Pease as faculty
adviser, Catherine I-Iumphreys and Wfilliam McArdle handled the publicity,
and Carston Grupe was an efficient stage manager. The opera class, as
choruses, added a great deal to the color and melody of the opera.

"CHERRY TREES OR FIBSU
After the Stockton-lflilmar debate on February 21, a short skit entitled
"Cherry Trees or Films" was presented by the Dramatic VVorkshop. This
playlet embodied the thought of "Better Speech" and celebrated the birthday
of George VVashington. The production was entirely a student one, the first
attempted during the absence of Miss Carrie D. lfVright. It was written by
Agnes McGee, coached by Alberta Reibenstein, and played by Esther-Fay
Liesy and NVilliam Trivelpiece, who took the parts of the Newsboy and the
Gentleman, respectively. Briefly, the plot told the story of the little, ignorant,
fresh newsboy who listens to the well-educated, self-important, young gentle-
man telling the absorbing story of George VVashington and his hatchet. The
point of the tale does not penetrate his tough little mindg so after many
ludicrous incidents, the gentleman leaves in despair at trying to reform the
The iinal Dramatic XX'orltshop production of the season, "The Romantic
Age", by A. A. llflilnc, was presented on May 16 in the new auditorium. It
was the lirst time this year that the VVO1-kshop had the opportunity to show
to a full extent its ability along the lilies of beautiful scenic and dramatic art.
VVith due credit to other VVorkshop performances, Miss Wfright believed
the "The Romantic Age" would be the best performance of the season, owing
to the fact that the play had three distinct appealing features: first, a theme
of love, beauty, and adventure, second, extremely effective and startling light-
ing effects: and third, a new set of most artistically designed scenery.
The story is based upon the romance and adventure of Melisande, a fool-
ishly romantic young girl with absurd notions about love and a stubborn pride
which almost loses for her the "Prince Charming" of the play, Gervase Mal-
lory. lX'lelisande's mother unconsciously tangles up the love affair of her
daughter with Gervase, and of her niece jane with Bobby Coote, Melisande's
father quite consciously untangles everyone's love affairs, for he is a lovable,
kind-hearted fellow with a vivid imagination and a life-saving humor, which
keeps things stirring in his rather drab and unmanageable household. After
many disturbing and complexing situations, everyone finally achieves his
heart's desire, and Melisande turns her imagination to finding romance in more
practical things-such as learning how to cook!
The cast, as selected when the annual went to print, was as follows:
Melisande, Madge Mills, Gervase Mallory, Reginald Gianellig Mr. Knowle,
Palmer Goldsberryg Mrs. Knowle, Margaret Reynolds, Jane Bagot, Agnes
McGee: Bobby Coote, Calhoun Reidg Gentleman Susan, VVilliam Woodford,
Alice, La Vergne yVhiteg Ern, Esther-Fay Liesy.
As a hnal production, nothing better could have been selected than "The
Romantic Age," a delightful ending to a successful season.
LATIN CLUB PLAY
Different from any play of the entire dramatic season at Stockton High
School, was the Latin Club's annual play, "A Roman VVcdding," which de-
lio'hted an enthusiastic audience on the evening of june 5.
'llhc program began with a clever little curtain raiser called "A School-
boy's Dream." 'llhe two people in the cast were: The boy-Robin Dunng
Caesar-Ernest Lonsdale. '
"The Charge of The Aniazonsu was a graceful dance done by six girls:
Lois Roberts, Gladys Pagel, Francis Fogarty, Emerald Skinner, Mary Louise
Leistncr, Hannah Rose Gartner.
The play, "A Roman VVedding,l' told the story of the way in which a girl
was betrothed and wedded in the days of ancient Rome. The setting and
lighting were carefully planned, and very well done. Credit is due to all the
actors and especially to Dolly Mason as Tullia, the bride, Sam Sherman as
Cicero, and Clara Hudson as 'llerentia

THE YEAR'S SPORTS
The year 1924, when it dawned upon Stockton High School in September,
presented no promises of a successful athletic season.
'l'he football squad had been robbed of its lustre by the graduation of the
talented class of '23 3 and the men 'who were expected to mold Stockton'S grid-
iron destinies were so inexperienced, their abilities so unknown, that the Blue
and lNhite future successes were totally hidden by a disheartening' cloud of
uncertainty. Nor did the other sports possess a more promising aspect than
the pigskin pastime, for the great basket ball machines of former years had
passed on and left but a single veteran in their places: and the track, baseball,
and swimming squads had each su'Ffered accordingly.
But the athletic coaches jerked the 'llarzan adherents out of the pits of
despondency when, with a display of their sterling abilities, they molded the
undeveloped material into some of the most formidable teams that ever graced
the campus of Stockton High School.
Such results attained under such severe handicaps stand pre-eminent as a
monument to the dauntless spirit of the students ul this school, and as a goal
toward which future students should forever aim.
VARSITY FOOTBALL TEAM
The year 1924 has witnessed football, the one sport in which Stockton
seemed most unable to win, flourish as it has not before in years. The "Wasl1-
ington system", inaugurated but last year by Coach Hanley, came into its own
under Coach 1X1 cKay.
Stockton lost but one game this year after playing through a long and hard
schedule, a record which no previous team can boast of since American foot-
ball was readopted. And, what is more, the class of 1924 not only can boast
of a great team, but can also claim that, although it possessed brilliant players
on the squad, it also left more promising material behind than any previous
The football games of 1924:
Stockton, 20, Alumni, 6.
For the Iirst time in the history of Stockton High School, a football game
was staged between the high school team and the varsity stars of years gone
byg and, to the surprise of the "dopesters," the varsity walked olf with the
game by a margin of 20 to 6.
'l'he alumni shot their bolt at the beginning of the game, and after those
lirst transient moments had passed, the shining lights on the "old timers' "
aggregation, who had thrilled many a throng with their brilliant plays of
yesterday, gradually blinked outg and Stockton High School's present sons,
with a crashing determined drive, swept on to a glorious well-earned victory.
Stockton, 355 Fresno Tech, 6. A
Behind a dynamic, impetuous line that plunged through the opposing for-
wards with savage abandon, the Stockton backlield, led by their dashing cap-
tain Sousa and hard-hitting Noyes, crashed through the bright scarlet ranks
of Fresno Tech. for the ultimate score of 55 to 6, in the second game of the
The work of the flllue and NfVhite line was a revelation, and every man on
the forward wall shared in the glory. 'lihe Fresno backheld had no chance to
show its real worth, because it was always hurried by the Tarzan linesmen
who would break through and smear the opposing interference almost before
it could form.
Stockton,'Og Lodi, 12.
'lfhe Lodi game, the game that every Blue and Xdfhite partisan realized
would decide the sub-league championship, was lost to the lads from the land
ul the ',l'okay by a 12 to O score, in one of the bitterest, most heart-breaking
gridiron encounters ever staged on a local lield.
Time after time the lighting Cavemen drove the Grape-eaters back only to
have their chances for a score wiped out by a fumble of which their wily and
capable opponents gladly took advantage. I
Orville Moyes played marvelous football for Stockton, his terrilic line
plunges being the only dependable local means of advancing the ball. The
Lodi team made both of their touchdowns by wisely punting and waiting for
the "breaks," and the "breaks" won the game for them.
Stockton, 35 Sacramento, 0.
For ive long years the Sacramento Senators. had heaped defeat after defeat
on the humble brows of the lllue and White elevens until the avenging team
of '24 invaded the very domains of the haughty Purple, and after driving the
Solons all over their field. sent them down to a 5 to O defeat.
'l'he playing was almost always in Sacramento territory, but the Cavcmen
could not put over a touchdown. 'llhree times the Blues forced the Purples
to dig their cleats into their last chalk mark only to have Bennie Bava miss
an easy lield goal on fourth down, but in the fourth try Bennie made good,
and with but two minutes of the game remaining, the Senators were doomed
'l'he whole Blue team worked wonderfully except when almost over their
opponents' goal line, and there all of their "punch" seemed to be gone, or the
score would have been Stockton, 285 Sacramento, O.
Stockton, 135 Woodland, 7.
Playing the time-honored game of "kick and wait for the breaks," Coach
hlcKay's battling lllues won over the Vtfoodland VVolves in one of the most
exciting games of the year by the score of 13 to 7.
Stockton outplayed X'Voodland far more than the score would indicate, for
the 'llarzans were on their opponents' three-yard line as the first half ended,
and on their twenty-live-yard line as the game closed.
The Caveman line, whose great work was so evident in other games,
seemed to have an off day, and it was the lilltltl and VVhitc backlield that
garnered all of the glory. Nevertheless two linemenmade Stockton's first
tcauchdown--Archie Henry blocked a punt and Bush scooped up the ball and
ran for the touchdown.
Stoektoifs second touchdown was the result of great work by the whole
team in general. and Ernie George in particular, who finally scored on a wide
Stockton, 65 Modesto, 0.
ln a fourth quarter rally, the lllues prevented the Modesto gamels result-
ing in a O 0 tie. Stockton had only two chances to score. Failing on the first
one, she fought harder for the second, and a long pass, Ilava to George, re-
sulted in the score's being 6-0.
Stockton, 34g Grass Valley, 0.
'l'he Stockton High School gridiron machine went into the Grass Valley
game on high, and scored enough points in the first few moments of play to
win the contest, which linally ended in a 34 to O victory for the lighting
'lihe lllue and Wlhitc eleven for the first time Showed a real smashing
offense, with the result that the mountain lads were swept olff their feet from
the initial whistle until the final gun. 'llhe game was featured by the hard
tackling of the Stockton team, particularly that of Arata and George.
The Grass Valley boys did not show much ability to play consistent foot-
ball, and their frequent fumbles deprived them of the ball when they did
seem to be playing well. But maybe, after all, it was the brilliant playing of
Stockton that made the mountain lads look so weak. E
Stockton, 16g Turlock, 0.
'llhe curtain dropped on the 1924 football season as the hnal gun ended the
Stockton-'l'nrlock game on the Oak Park gridiron, which resulted in a 16 to O
victory for the lighting lllues.
llrilliant playing was the order of the day, and at some time during the
game nearly every man of the lield occupied the spotlight, but the man that
shone most brightly of all was "Dolly" Irving Pahl, Stockton'S big left
tackle, whose playing both on offense and defense was nothing short of
The Turlock team looked good at times, but when they became dangerous,
the Stockton defense tightened, and the Melon-Eaters could not gain an inch.
Once the Cantaloupes were on the 'l'arzans'-two-yard with four downs to
make a score, but the Blues shone in all of their defensive glory, and stopped
the next four plays at the line of scrimmage.
Bennie Bava brought the game to a IICVCI'-U1-lJ6-f-Ufgfltttill conclusion when,
standing on the fifty-yard line, he sent the inflated oval through the bars for
enough points to win the game.
',l'hus ended one of the greatest and most successful football seasons that
Stockton .I ligh School has ever experienced. One defeat on such a calendar
of glorious triumphs does not in the least detract from the ability of this
year's team--a team that lost its lirst league game, and then rose Phoenix-like
from the ashes of defeat to soar to the heights of Victory.
. May the teams of the future repeat this team's victories and blot out its
SECOND FOOTBALL TEAM
"LITTLE TARZANSU FOOTBALL TEAM
The "Class B" football team of Stockton High School went through their
entire 1924 campaign without once suffering a defeat.
The coaching of assistant coaches Pease and Gavigan can never suffi-
ciently be repaid by written commendation. but the record of the "Little Tar-
zans" is a silent testimonial to the abilities of their coaches.
The second team's record:
Stockton, 323 Sonora, 13.
October 20, 1923.
Although they were the lighter team, the Stockton Class B gridiron prides
displayed a greater drive and a stanncher defense than did Sonora's boys, and
thereby neatly trimmed the latter's varsity by the score of 32 to 13. Kenyon
and Davis looked good for Stockton.
Stockton, 193 Sutter Creek, 0.
November 2, 1923.
By relying on their speed to carry them to victory, the Cavemen white-
washed their Sutter Creek opponents on their own rocky held by the score
of 19 to O. Calcaterra. Stocktoifs left half, played a great game and made all
of thc Blue and XVliite touchdowns. 1
Stockton, 479 jackson, 7.
November 10, 1923.
Stockton's "Little 'liarzans," after trailing behind jacksorfs football team
in the first quarter, came from behind in a blaze of offensive glory as brilliant
as the autumn sun o'erhead, and won their second consecutive league title
and their white sweaters by savagely plowing their way through the moun-
tain boys for the one-sided score of 47 to 7. Davis was the big scoring star
Stockton, 79 San Juan, 7.
November 16, 1923.
Bravely facing a team that out-weighed them twenty points to a man,
Coach Pease's "Little Tarzans' fought through a bitter game on a field of soft
red sand for the championship of Northern California, only to have the game
end in a 7 to 7 tie.
The Pease-men played wonderful football in the early part of the game,
crossing their opponents' last chalk line in the first two minutes of play.
But the San Juan boys came back with a line display of spirit and tied the
count in the latter part of the game. Thus both squads may lay claim to the
regal robes of northern California Class 13 football.
VARSITY BASKET BALL TEAM
BASKET BALL, 1924
The 1924 basket ball season was not ushered into Stockton I-ligh School
so cheerfully as the seasons of former years, for it seemed that at last the
Stockton Tarzans, the pride of the Golden State, were doomed for the most
disastrous program in the history of the school. But Harry B. Lenz, the
coach who has played such a prominent part in the Blue and Wliite's basket
ball successes during the last live years, needed just such a crisis to bring
out his sterling qualities, and in a manner that was a revelation to the most
optimistic rooter, he molded an inexperienced team into a combination that
completely upset all predictions by winning the championship of Central
California before thc plucky group fell in the contest with Auburn for the
The team of 1924 lacked the stars that graced the lineups of such marvel-
ous scoring machines as Stockton liligh School possessed in '22 and '23, and
had to be content with a strong defensive game, which naturally had less and
less chance for success as the opposition became harder and harder. Never-
theless it took a great team to beat those lighting sons of Stockton High.
The varsity squad of 1924: forwards-Sousa, Berg, Caviglia, Bava, Sweet,
George, center-Bush, guards-Calcaterra, Barsi, Pahl.
Stockton, 28, Oakdale, 17.
December 14, 1923.
Stockton High School opened the 1924 basket ball season in promising
fashion by sweeping Oakdale off her own court with a 28 to 17 score. No
Oakdale players had many opportunities to score, but even if they had had,
their shooting was woefully weak.
Stockton, 273 Modesto, 14.
January 4, 1924.
Stockton High School's basket ball team started on its drive for a third
consecutive state title on its home court when the Modesto High School boys
were sent reeling back to their milk pails to the tune of 27 to 14. The first
quarter was fiercely contested and ended with the Blue and Wllite holding
grimly to a 4 to 2 lead. During the intermission, however, a stronger Stock-
ton lineup was put on the floor, and the Modesto quintet was hopelessly out-
classed during the rest of the game.
Stockton, 32 5 Preston, 26.
January 9, 1924.
Although the Preston quintet played the fastest floor game, the Stockton
Cavemen sent them home on the short end of a 32 to 26 count because the
Tarzans knew how to put the ball through the hoop. Preston had a fast
passing combination, but it was a one-man scoring quintet and therefore
failed to operate smoothly because of the close guarding of the Tarzans.
Berg and Bava starred for Stockton.
Stockton, 323 Sacramento, 24.
January 11, 1924.
Dazed by an irresistible Sacramento drive that threatened to put an end
to their long basket ball reign, the Stockton Tarzans were yanked from the

pits of despair by little "Red" Berg, who broke into the game as a substitute
and proceeded to shoot his way into the hearts of the Stockton rooters and
his "alma mater" by helping to pile up a 32 to 24 victory over the Capital
City boys on the local high school court.
The game was a tightly guarded affair throughout the entire first half.
.-Xt quarter time Stockton led 2 to O, and at half time the locals still led 9 to 8.
Hut during the second half the Tarzans, aided by Berg's beautiful shooting,
left their opponents by a safe margin. Sacramento had many tries at the
basket, but sheer hard luck kept them from breaking more often into the
Stockton, 193 Fresno, 18.
January 19, 1924.
Coming from behind, with a characteristic rally, the Stockton Lenzmen
scored ten points in the linal quarter of play, thereby nosing out Fresno
'l'ech. by the close score of 19 to 18.
The defensive strength of Fresno was very evident until the beginning of
the final quarter. .-Xt that time the Sun-Maids were leading by the apparently
safe score of 16 to 9, but that last savage Tarzan onslaught was too much for
their defense to withstand, and the nnal result was another victory for Stock-
ton High School's lighting basketeers.
This was the last game before the opening of the C. I. F. season against
.l-,odi on the home court. The outlook for the league games was somewhat
brighter than at the beginning of the season because of the rapid improve-
ment of the team, but still Stockton was not even granted an outside chance
of defeating the veteran Tokay Quintet.
Stockton, 15g Lodi, 13.
February 2, 1924.
XVith but one quarter remaining before the final gun, with their scarlet-
hued opponents in possession of a two-point lead, with the prayers of their
rooters to "Fight! Fight !" ringing in their ears, the blue-and-white striped
Cavemen of Stockton High School came from behind in a last desperate,
dazzling nnish and forced the over-contident Lodi Tokays to bow their heads
to a stinging 15 to 13 defeat, on the local floor, in the first league game of the
The Stockton quintet was behind-far behind-throughout most of the
game, but as the end neared, the continued light of the Blues began to slow
down the Lodi combination, until the last, in the linal two minutes of play,
the Lenzmen forged ahead for the lirst time during the evening, and held that
meager one-point lead until the linal gun sounded.
The entire team played a marvelous game, never giving up hope even
when they seemed hopelessly outclassed, and their spirit won for them the all-
Stockton, 18g Lodi, 14.
February 8, 1924.
The second game of the Stockton-Lodi series may best be remembered
as almost an exact duplicate of the first game. Once again Lodi took the lead
from the initial whistle, once again that lead seemed to be too great to over-
come, but once again those lighting sons of Stockton High School did over-
come it and established their superiority more lirmly than in the first
encounter by whipping Lodi on her own court with an 18 to 14 score.
Carlo Sousa, who was a big factor in the first Stockton victory, was once
again the star in the offensive department 3 but in the defensive side of Stock-
ton's game, the star was George Barsi, husky Tarzan standing guard.
'llhough the brilliancy of other athletic contests may dim with the flight
of years, those two basket ball clashes with Lodi in 1924 will always hold
anyone who witnessed them utterly captivated with the tense uncertainty
of their fleeting moments, the display of school spirit that urged both teams
on to greater efforts, and the unflinching "heart" of the team that bore Stock-
ton High School's colors on to victory.
Stockton, 26, Galt, 14. l
February 29, 1924.
The Galt High School quintet, the pride of Yolo and Sacramento counties,
next had the misfortune to cross the path of the blood-thirsty Tarzans, and
although the lads from the north played a game that only a desperate losing
team can play, they were decisively vanquished by the score of 26 to 14-a
score that belies the closeness of the early part of the game.
The game was a whirlwind affair from the first whistle with unintentional
rouglmess marking the play of both sides. Galtnsco-red first on a free throw,
but Bush tied the count a few moments later in the same manner, and the
Blue and Xhfhite secured a 4 to 1 lead as the first quarter ended. , The out-
come of the game was doubtful well into the third quarter, when at one time
Stockton was barely leading by the score of 16 to 125 but from that ti1ne until
the final gun the game was all for the Tarzans, the victors scoring ten points
to their opponents' two.
The Stockton star of the evening was little "Red" Berg, who shot six
held goals, while Galt's luminary was Captain Callanchini, who waspthe
whole offense of the "Redshirts." E
Stockton, 23, Modesto, 11.
March 7, 1924.
By displaying a beautiful passing and shooting game that baffled the
opposition from the initial whistle, the Stockton Blues swept onward to their
fortieth consecutive basket ball victory and another Central California cham-
pionship by trimming the Modesto quintet by the score of 23 to 11.
Not one of the' live victorious Tarzans seemed to be individually inclined,
and the result was that Stockton displayed the best teamwork of the season.
"Red" Berg, as usual, was the shooting star of the evening, being credited
with fifteen of Stockton's twenty-three points. The other four men, however,
all starred defensively, and the quality of their play is shown by the small
Modesto score, consisting of three field goals and live free-throw points.
Stockton, 16, Auburn, 30.
March 7, 1924.
The Auburn game-the game that was such a surprise to the faithful
Stockton rooters who could see nothing but the smooth path of Success
stretching out before the fighting live of '24, the game that brought out the
real spirit of Stockton's great team-ended with the Blue and VVhite quintet
gazing sadly upon a 'scoreboard that marked the end of the trail, the end of
their long series of uninterrupted victories, a scoreboard whose simple mes-
sage was Auburn, 30, Stockton, 16. A
The 'llarzans played the best game they knew how to play, but they could
not hit the basket, and their celebrated defense collapsed before the smashing
offense of the mountain lads. Berg, the offensive star of every other game,
failed to make a point, and the rest of the team, with one exception, played
accordinglyg The one Stockton boy who played up to expectations was
Clarence Bush, Stockton's high-point man of the evening.
The team was somewhat weakened by the loss of the injured Sousa, but
in the latter part of the game, Sousa went into the fray with an untaped
broken Hnger in a desperate, futile attempt to stem the Auburn onslaught,
and despite the physical handicap and the short time he played, Sousa ranked
next to Bush in the scoring column.
Brilliant individual work, however, could not offset organized team-play,
and Stockton, with hardly an asset but its characteristic spirit, fought grimly
on to lose uobly to a greater team.
And so the curtain dropped on Stockton High Schoo1's 1924 basket ball
season, a season that was a triumph even though it ended in disaster, for the
undimmed splendor of those victories that gained for the Blue and White a
Central California basket ball championship will ever remain even though
they be seen through the veil of defeat.
Before the fighting Tarzans Finally bowed to the inevitable, they made a
record of forty consecutive victories, a record that tells how Stockton High
School has reigned supreme in California basket ball since the days of '21,
The team of '24 may not have had the success of its brilliant predecessors,
but its Fighting ability will compare with any of them, for it won a sub-league
title on nothing but a heart.
CLASSIFIED BASKET BALL
Coach Libhart's weight teams, the cradle of the varsity, were missing this
year, and taking their place were the Class B and C squads that trained
regularly with the varsity.
The Class B team went as far up the ladder as possible when it won the
final game of the season from Marysville, thereby annexing the Northern
California championship. No Southern California winner was determinedg
so a play-off was impossible. The Class B men were Mallory, Bowan, Diet-
rich, Bernasconi, VVilliams, Wfaltman, Scott, Captain johnson, manager
Brown, and Coach Lenz.
The Class C quintet had a victorious season until it met Marysville. Be-
cause of that defeat, it had to be content with the honor of being runner-up
to the Northern championship. The Class C men were Miller, McCoy, Gar-
rigan, Brenner, and Bernasconi.
The Class B games were as follows:
Stockton, 225 Benicia, 21.
january 4, 1924.
Stocktonls Seconds triumphed over the Benicia varsity by the close score
of 22 to 21. The game was close and hard-fought throughout. The star for
Stockton was "Red" Berg who scored eleven points. Rowe shone for Benicia
with eight points.
Stockton, 25g Preston, 34.
January 11, 1924.
The Stockton Class B's fell before the Preston Industrial School in the
second game of the season by the score of 34 to 25. The game was hard-
fought but very clean. George starred for the Tarzans with thirteen points,
while jones sparkled in the opposing lineup with fourteen points.
Stockton, 195 Sacramento, 16.
january 11, 1924.
The Stockton and Sacramento Seconds battled through a regulation
period to a 16 to 16 tie, in a close and bitterly contested game: but in the
extra period, the Blues could not be denied by their Purple adversaries and
ended with Stockton on the long end of a 19 to 16 count.
Stockton, 253 Ione, 14.
By passing and shooting brilliantly, Stockton decisively outclassed lone
on their own court by the margin of 25 to 14. The game was very fast, and
lone displayed excellent work in passing, but their shooting could not com-
pare with that of the Blues. Kenyon was the Stockton high-point man with
seven digits to his credit, while Woolsey of lone surpassed the Caveman star
by two points.
Stockton, 125 Lodi, 7.
February 2, 1924.
The Class B's played against Lodi and won 12 to 7. That sentence speaks
volumes, for a Stockton-Lodi game in any sport is a battle, and in basket ball
it is worse than that.
CLASS B BASKET BALL TEAM
The game was cyclonic from the opening whistle, and the defenses of the
two quintets was almost flawless. But Hoessel, Funk, and Kenyon of Stock-
ton were shooting in great form despite the Tokays' stonewall opposition,
and the Blue and Wliite finally triumphed.
' Stockton, 13g Lodi, 16.
February 8, 1924.
Precedent means nothing in a 'l'okay-'l'arzan tussle, and with spirit unin-
jured the Grape-eaters avenged their previous defeat by trimming the "Little
'l.'arzans" by a 16 to 13 count. Stockton was off in shooting and Lodi had
a real "night," but the low score indicates the defenses of the two squads.
Hoessel of Stockton was high-point man with seven tallies, and Kenyon
played his usual brilliant floor game.
Stockton, 183 Woodland, 11.
February 22, 1924.
The "Little 'l'arzans" were crowned Class B champions of Central Cali-
fornia when they swept the VVoodland Wfolves off their own floor in the
second half of the game and won by the score of 18 to 11. The first half was
very bitterly contested. The Wolves led 2 to O at the end of the first quarter,
and the score was S to 5 at half time, but the Blues were shooting betteryin
the second half and thereby cinched the game. Captain Johnson made four
Held goals for Stockton.
Stockton, 263 St. Aloysius, 8. ,
.In a game replete with fouls, the St. Aloysius quintet was bowled over
by the Blue and XVhite "understudies,' by the one-sided count of 26 to 8.
The Saints were helpless from start to finish, they did not hold the ball past
the middle of the floor and relied entirely upon long shots. Bowan, Blue
running guard, made most of Stocktonls points by shooting in an unbeliev-
Stockton, 225 Auburn, 19.
March 14, 1924.
Auburn's second team fell before the aspiring Blues in the northern city,
in a game in which both squads demonstrated their championship caliber, by
the close score of 22 to 19. The prize for winning, was the privilege of
meeting Marysville for the northern state title, and both lives played 'accord-
ingly. Captain Emmett Johnson scintillated for Stockton by scoring twelve
points, and VVilliams came next with six markers.
Stockton, 215 Marysville, 18.
1 March 21, 1924. '
Another title was brought to Stockton High School when the Blue and
Wliite Class B squad crowned a season of almost uninterrupted triumphs by
winning the Northern California basket ball championship from Marysville
High School by a 21 to 18 score. The entire Stockton team played good
basket ball, and by combining talent with "heart" their season ended success-
CLASS C GAMES
Stockton, 355 St. Agnes College, 13.
March 14, 1924.
Stockton High School's Class C squad won its first game from St. Agnes
College by the overwhelming score of 35 to 13. The lirst quarter was close,
ending in a 6 to 6 tie, but the Tarzans ran wild in the last three stanzas. -
Stockton, 163 Auburn, 5.
1Vlfarch 19, 1924.
The Midget Tarzans played almost a carbon copy of their first game, and
trounced Auburn in their own home town by a 16 to 5 score. The first
quarter ended with both teams in a scoreless tie, but Stockton hit its stride
after that and soon had thelgame on ice. .
Stockton, 10g Marysville, 20.
March 21, 1924.
The Blue 1Xlidgct's championship hopes were shattered on the basket ball
floor of Marysville lligh School when the northern lads forced them to bow
to a 20 to 10 defeat. The game was for the championship of northern Cali-
fornia, and considering the short existence of the Class C's, their success was
surely remarkable. .
ADVISER SECTION BASKET BALL
The adviser sections of Stockton High School after a spirited season
ended their long series of frames with a "little world series" between the
zz- e, Q
Harriman cuintet, American Lea0'ue cham nons, and the VVll1l211T1SO11 five
l Z: 1
who wore the National League crown.
The VVillian1son clan with greater weight and more talent tore through
the American Leaguers in the Hnal game and won the Stockton High School
Adviser championship for the year 1924 by the score of 26 to 14.
The track team of 1924 lacked the personnel of the team of '23 because
most of the members were inexperienced and needed intensive coaching to
develop their talents. But considering the improvement made by each mem-
ber of the team in the short time of one season, the track results of 1924 can
be termed nothing else but successful.
INTERCLASS TRACK MEET
The seniors ran away witlrthe interclass track meet of 1924, the meet
ending with the fourth-year men away out in front with 79 points, the sopho-
mores came second with 35, juniors third with 24, and the freshmen last with
The seniors were very strong in the track events and received most of
their points therefrom. The high-point man of the meet was Charles Kenyon,
a senior, who made twenty points by winning four hrst places. The times
and marks made were, on the whole, rather poor because of lack of training
by the contestants for such an early meet.
Stockton, 55M,g Alumni, 64?A.
September 29, 1923.
The Stockton High 'School Alumni avenged their football defeat by trim-
ming the Blue and VVhite lads in the first track meet of the season by the
score of 64M to 55y4.' The outcome was fully expected, the only surprise
being that the old "grade" did not win the meet by a much larger score.
The field events were the strong points of the "old-timers". VVith the
great Eric Krenz, national high school discus champion of 1923, toying with
the weights, the outcome of the weights competition was never in doubt.
"Les" WVaggoner and Krenz of the Alumni were the highest point men with
nineteen and fourteen points respectively.
' Stockton, 49Mg Oakdale, 63M..
March 19-20, 1924.
After leading through the first half of the meet with Oakdale, the Tarzans
slumped badly, and linally allowed the Red-shirts to romp off with the meet
by the score of 632. to 4936.
The running events were unusually exciting, and in most of them the
Gakdale lads came from behind in the last few yards to snatch victory from
the Stockton men. The high-point men were Captain Pahl of Stockton and
Love of Oakdale, each with ten points to their credit.
Stockton, 75: Ripon, 33.
The Blue and VVl1ite trackmen outclassed their Ripon rivals by winning
first place in every event except the pole vault and running up the decisive
score of 75 to 33.
Charles Kenyon of Stockton was high-point man with nineteen points.
and Rooney was second with thirteen digits.
The Ripon track meet was the last meet of the 1924 season before this
annual went to press, but if the members of the squad continue to improve
asithey have in the past, they should make a line showing in the future meets.
Baseball, the one sport -that had always lacked the support of the student
body and executive committee in former years, was in an exactly opposite
condition in 1924, for it was as popular among the sport followers and
received as much equipment as any other sport on the high school athletic
The Blue and VVhite diamond men got a good start at the beginning of
the season and looked like champions in the making, but they slumped .mis-
erably just as the C. AI. F. schedule started, and their league showing was a
most unfair criterion of their ability. A
' The games of 1924:
Stockton, 185 Brentwood, 15. 1
February 22, 1924.
ln a game featured by weak pitching and hard hitting, the Stockton nine
outscored the Brentwood on their home diamond by the score of 18 to 15.
Five home runs, one triple, three doubles, and live singles were made by the
Tarzans. The Blue battery was 'I-lewitt, Ito, and Pigozzi pitchers, and
Kinna catcher. -
' Stockton, 175 Antioch, 10. i '
March 1, 1924.
Playing under threatening skies, and in a cold north wind, the' Stockton
diamond artists trouneed the Antioch Mud Hens 17 to 10 on the Oak Park
No. 2 diamond. The game was a miserable exhibition of baseball, but the
weather was everything but baseball weather, and the players performed
accordingly. The Stockton battery was Hewitt, Pigozzi, Lamasney pitchers,
and Kinna catcher.
Stockton, 12Q Manteca, 9.
March 18, 1924.
Manteca High School was the victim of the Cavemen Sluggers, and
they fell in a free hitting game by the count of 12 to 9. The Tarzan battery
was Lamasney pitcher, and Kinna catcher.
Stockton, 63 Brentwood, 5.
April 28, 1924.
By scoring four runs in a beautiful sixth inning rally, the Cavemen dia-
mond artists nosed out their Brentwood opponents by the close score of 6 to 5
on the Oak Park diamond. Bert Lamasney and "jimmy" Wliitinore were
the Blue heroes, because of their timely hitting. Pigozzi hurled and Dyer
and Kinna stopped his slants.
Stockton, 103 Stile A11 Stars, 4.
:Xpril 29, 1924.
In a practice game the day following the Brentwood contest, the Tarzans
picked off another game from the Stile All-Stars, an independent club, by
the large margin of 10 to 4. 'l'he game was close until the fourth stanza when
the All-Stars' errors lost the game. Hewitt and I'igozzi bore the pitching
burden. while Kinna stayed behind the timber.
Stockton, 53 Sacramento, 9.
April 12, 1924.
Failure to hit in the pinches and a disheartening exhibition of errors cost
Stockton its hrst league baseball game of the season to the Sacramento
Solons on their lield by the score of 9 to 5. 'l'he 'llarzan battery was Hewitt
and Pigozzi, pitchers: and Kinna and lierg. catchers.
Stockton, 33 Lodi, 8.
April 12, 1924.
The 'llokay pitcher, Sargenti, held the Tarzan batters helpless, and the
Grape-eaters took the game easily by an 8 to 3 score. 'llhe game was even
up to the third stanza when Lodi started hitting. and then the outcome of
the contest was never in doubt. Hewitt and Pigozzi did the twirling while
Kinna and llerg wore the air pad.
Stockton, 43 Lodi, 14.
April 19, 1924.
I,odi murdered the Stockton pitchers for live innings in the second game
uf the two-game series, incidentally winning the game by a 14 to 4 count.
Little Abe Bromberg, almost unnoticed before, was the only Tarzan hurler
to escape. He twirled the last four innings in masterly fashion. The entire
Blue nine played ragged ball, which also accounted for so many Tokay runs,

May 3, 1924.
The Governors deluged the Blue and Vtfhites on the local diamond with a
score of 23 to 2. The main reason for the locals' defeat was the many errors
they committed. This game closed the baseball season.

'llhe swinnning' team was another squad that Coach Lenz had to develop
from the substitutes of last year's state championship aggregation, and he
did some wonderful developing.
ln the one meet of the year the lilue and XfVhite niernien defeated a pow-
erful local independent club in a manner which augured well for the Tarzan
tanlc-stars for the year 1924.
Stockton, 393 Independents, 38.
April 25, 1924.
Coach "Pete" l.enz's lighting mermen won their lirst swinnning meet of
the season at the Olyinpic Baths when they nosed out the Outlaws by the
narrow margin of 39 to 38.
'l'he Outlaws led 38 to 34 up to the relay events, but the fleet Lenzian
quartet of Kenyon, Keagle, Mahaffey, and Johnson left their opponents far
behind in the hnal event and cinched the meet for the high school.

X'Yll11ljlC, Keagle, 'XN'allace, Crippen, Maliaffey, Jones, Kenyon, and Tyler.
.Ns this book went into the hands of the printer, the team was heading
for what appeared to be a fourth consecutive state title.
limmett .lohnson has not been beaten in the 50-yard event. He had tied
the Northern and Coast record and had a line chance of breaking the State
record this year. Bill lvlahaffey. a new-comer in swimming, was also showing
up well in this event.
"Chuck" Kenyon, of the 1923 team, was again swimming in fine form and
bid fair to clip off some fast time. Kenyon also swam the half century and
starred in the breast stroke. Peckler, a sub. last year, was doing the fish act
in a style that should win him a place in any meet. joe Peters, entered in the
220, was almost certain to break the Northern State record this year. Peters
also swam the 440, and even made Carlos Souza, the S. H, S. man for this
distance, look to his laurels. Ken Tyler made a good teammate for joe in
the 220. Sid VVimble was Charlie Kenyon's Nemesis, for he kept right on his
heels in Kenyon's events.
Wfaltman, Spencer, Wiallace, and Souza were doing the dives, and from
all appearances the Blue mermen would show up well in this department.
As manager, Georgie Caviglia was most successful and had the hearty
co-operation of the entire team.
lYhether or not the azure Neptunes win the state title, everyone must
acclaim the name of "Pete" Lenz, who put Stockton on the swimming as well
as the basket ball and crew map.

ROSS PEASE MEMORIAL CUP
To encourage swimming as a clean sport and a wholesome exercise, Mr.
l.,aurance N. Pease, head of the Commercial Department, gave a cup this year
to be called the "Ross Pease Trophy Cup" in memory of his little son, Ross,
aged nine, who was accidentally killed in August, 1922. By this gift a cup
is to be awarded each year to the boy in Stockton High School who makes
the largest number of points in the C. I. F. meets for the year. In case of a
tie, the swimming coach and the athletic director shall decide the winner.
lf swimming is dropped from the C. I. F., the cup to be awarded ohterwise.
Though the 1924 award had not been made at this writing, it was quite
certain that one of the following would have the honor of having his name
engraved on the cup: Emmett Johnson, Carlos Souza, Joe Peters, or Charles
Stockton High's supremacy in this sport is proved by her three years'
winning of the state championships and the fact that this year all the schools
in the Northern California League have forfeited to Stockton. The semi-
linals were to be held in May, and the finals probably early in june.
'llhe tennis team is one team in Stockton High School that has steadily
improved year by year until this year it is probably stronger than at any other
time in the history of this institution.
The success of the tennis team, however, is not due to any school coach,
but to a Stockton business man who has cheerfully given time and labor to
the development of the high school players because he loves the game-and
that man is F. Graham Tollit. Four years ago when Mr. Tollit located in
Stockton it is doubtful whether there was one Tarzan tennis player who could
compare with the lowest ranking player today.
The team of 1924 can boast of one of the ablest juniors on the coast in
Harry McKee. and the rest of the line-up is made conspicuous by such names
as Nick Mayall. Marshall Turner, Dan Stone, and Frank Lusignan.
The C. l. F. tournament was still to be played at this writing, but the
Stockton tennis team can look forward to it without the slightest doubt as to
their success in it.
The point system for girls' athletics, which was adopted by the athletic
committee in November, has four distinct objects, which are defined by Miss
Bradstrect, head of the Girls' Physical .Education Department, as follows:
Qlj To arouse the interest and support of the Girls' Association in pro-
moting cleaner, more wholesome athletics within the girls' interclass tourna-
QZQ To promote a kecner interest as well as a more intelligent playing

This system oilers an insignia, bearing the letters A. G. A. QAssociated
Girls' Athleticsl which will be of blue felt on a white background, or vice
versa. In order to gain this a girl must earn iifty points. They may be earned
as follows: '
1. Nine-court basket ball-must play one full half in three different games
of a percentage tournament-10 points.
2. Baseball-must play three-fourths of number of innings played in
three different games of a percentage tournament-10 points.
3. Volley ball-must play the whole game in three different games of a
percentage tournament-10 points.
11. Swimming :
a-Passing the beginner's test-2 points.
b-.I-'assing advanced test-3 more, or 5 altogether.
cgljarticipation in at least two events of the Inter-Class Swimming
lvleet-5 points Q10 pointsj.

b-Participation in Annual Physical Education Spring Festival-
5 points Q10 pointsj.
6. Tennis-to be worked out this spring-10 points.
7. Crew-worked out as last year-10 points.
These insignia will be presented in June at a girls' assembly. In the event
that more than one tournament a year in one sport is held, points may count
only once in each year for each sport. In the case of repetition of points in
the same sport from year to year, points earned in the same activity may be
counted towards the reward not more than twice throughout the high school
The girls' interclass tournaments have been delayed this year because this
is the lirst year the new point system has been tried, and it required much
work on the part of Miss Hill and Miss Bradstreet to start the system and
arrange the tournaments.
At the time the annual went to press, none of the tournaments were com-
pleted, but they were to be played oil as follows: basket ball and volley ball-
last week in April and first two weeks in Mayg baseball-last two weeks in
May, swimming-Iirst two weeks in June.
Because the athletic point system was just inaugurated this year, it is
hard for a senior to gain nity points. The winners of the insignia had not
been named when the annual went to press, but those seniors trying for the
numeral were: Vida Blain, Dorothy Cross, Ernestine Eastman, VVilma Mc-
Han, Anna Erle, Dorothy Boston, Elsie Erickson, Ruth Smeland, Helen
Garvin, Mae Petzinger, Margaret Lacey, Florence Barnett, Elsie Dunn, and

ZEIM ER TROPHY
The Zeimer trophy for the best all-round athlete in Stockton High School
for the year 1924 was awarded to Carlos Souza, who took a prominent part in
all of the major sports of the school. He was captain of this year's football
and basket ball teams, played a good game of baseball, and 1nade a game
comeback in the tank. Souza was a very versatile athlete throughout his high
school career, and is a lit successor to Dessaussois, Zent, and Patten.
THE NEW AUDITORIUM
Stockton High School formally opened one of the finest and largest high
school auditoriums in the state with the senior play on April 4, 1924. The
architect, lllr. Louis S. Stone, and the contractors, Shepherd and Riley and
Mr. -I. F. Shepherd, had spared no pains in making the building beautiful and
durable. It is one of the six Class .-X buildings of Stocktong this means that
it is fire-proof and constructed of the finest quality of materials. Class A
steel frame, reinforced plaster, and very strong concrete are only a few of
the materials which make the building one of the best in California. lt is S5
feet by ll5 feet in dimensions, and the total cost was Sl80,000.
The general plan of the auditorium is excellent. Twelve exits, located in
the most serviceable places, enable the audience to clear the building in a
very short time. The acoustics and heating are also of the best. The great
proscenium arch above and before the stage sends the voices out to the audi-
ence clear and strong, and the acoustic board which forms the ceiling absorbs
every sound which might make an echo. Two large tunnels running the full
length of the building just under the cement fioor will be used for conducting
the heat through the building from the central heating plant of the school.
The attic is ventilated by openings in the roof.
The stage is the most interesting part of the whole auditorium. The
measurements are 42 feet by 24 feet in the opening and 85 feet by 33 feet from
wall to wall so that a large dray is able to drive in and turn around upon it.
Furthermore, the stage is equipped with several of the finest modern inven-
tions, a good example of which is the method by which the curtain can be
handled, it being possible to draw it from both sides or to raise it as is desired.
Forty-four feet above the Hoof of the stage there is a "grid" fa ceiling of
rafters about six inches apartj, and on this are fastened ropes and pulleys.
The drop scenes are attached to the ropes and can be lowered into place, or
they can be raised above the setting as another scene is lowered into place.
By these means the scenery can easily be put into place or got out of the way
quickly and noiselessly. The handling of the ropes is all done from the fly
The stage lighting is of the best. There are three colors in the foot lights:
red, white, and blue, which can be blended and used very effectively. The
lights above the stage are the same. ln order to obtain finer effects, these
lights are divided into three groups, and each of the large groups is divided
into three smaller ones: as, the large groups are red lights, one: white lights,
two: blue lights, three. The smaller groups are red right, red center, red leftg
white right, white center, white left: blue right, blue center, blue left. These
lights are connected so that any one of the groups can be turned on or all of
them at once. These switches are all on a master switch-board which is on
one side of the stage. There is one large switch on this board which controls
every light in the building, and there is a smaller switch for each of the tln'ee
sections on it. All of the individual switches are labeled. On one side of
this master switch-board there are three switches which turn on a red light
STOCKTON HIGH'S NEW S1B0,000 AUDITORIUM
in the operator's room, the Hy galleries, and the orchestra, and a bell which
is connected with the two dressing rooms, which are in the basement directly
below the stage. The door from the orchestra pit opens opposite the dressing
There are thirty-eight rows of seats, which are lettered and numbered in

Their crying need for happiness, but has
No rhyme, no harmony, no beauteous tone
Of melody to sooth the gay wild breasts
Of these young folks today, who know no restg
Nor have a thought of duty, love, or home.
VVhere is this god of jazz to take the OIICS
Who heed his call nor stop to think it oler,
Who madly dance a11d play the long night through
Nor stop to think of sorrow when it comes?
VVill they but worship jazz foreverrnore,
Or will they stop and, wherefore, if they do?
