I71 Przincipdlys Message CHOOSE your associates and your friends with care. You are a part of all you meet. Make that environment constructively helpful. It costs much to be a friend or to have a friend. You will not and can not have many. Fortunate will you be to have a few who are absolutely faithful. From this inner circle choose the wisest for your counselors. Seek proper advice on all important mat- ters, and heed it. Choose your work or vocation wisely. Select work which you can do and do well, and which you will enjoy. If you do not find happiness in your work. you will not find it anywhere, although you must realize there are unpleasant things to be met in every line of endeavor. Take time now to prepare for the job which awaits you. Keep up with your calling. Every day brings new developments. Anticipate tomorrow's needs if you can, and your success will be assured. Choose your time for play as well as for work and study. We Americans do not play enough. Everyone should have a vocation. an avocation, and a vacation. Let all three be wholesome. Leisure hours need not be idle or destruc- tive. Make them helpful. Enjoy your youth while you may. Girlhood and boyhood come but once. Do not be in a hurry to establish a home. Many marry too young. Home is the best and happiest place in the world, but the business of home-making and home-keeping is nevertheless a serious one. Make your decisions carefully. Wise counsel and careful choosing as to your friends, your vocation, your avocation. your study, and your home will contribute much to your happiness and your success. May both be yours in abundance! -NOEL H. GARRISON. l8l I J y ff, N fa vb ,qw ,J W V1 5-J "Alf, y NR v ,fa Xi gf-ff ,, H, 2 - '5 k r' .

U41 YY , ,J ., ,. CLASSES Senior History FIRST CENTURY Four centuries ago in a far-off land called Essaichess, dwelt a very pow- erful and talented race of people who started out in their career as insignifi- cant freshmen and grew into a strong race called seniors. During their gen- eration this group, known as the class of '25, rose to fame and promi- nence. Leading them in their first period of life were Donald Brooks Carr and Alberta Horan. In those long-past days these children had a hard strug- gle in that year 1922. Nevertheless they came on strongly with Merle Harper helping in football and Betty Coffin showing up in dramatic com- position. SECOND CENTURY On and on they climbed, and their second period was still more success- ful. They started the year off like a thunder burst, choosing Melvin Belli as chief pasha and Dorothy Carrow as first assistant. George Barsi gave them glory in the realm of athletics. having been on the state championship basketball team. Don Carr climbed the ladder of fame in dramatics. The oral ex- pression class play, "Come Out of the Kitchen," in which the actress, Ruth Ferguson, shone, proved itself a huge success to be remembered even in this present century. I-171 THIRD CENTURY As juniors this great band climbed steadily onward with Jack Eccleston as the able captain and Ruth Fergu- son to represent the women. During this period they accomplished great things together, carrying through two junior-senior dances. FOURTH CENTURY At last this mighty race reached supremacy and ruled as Htted their ability, Robert Goldsberry and Caro- lyn Kerrick acting as general and ad- jutant general. Many great events develop during this era. A play, "The Whole Town's Talking," which delighted everyone, a state championship basketball team with such representatives as George Barsi, Bill Mahaffey, and Georgie Cavaglia. and flrst place in the oratorical league won by Edward Fong, show just a few things that this great race ac- complished. Many years will come and go, more centuries may pass, but the angel of Memory will Write in the great Hall of Fame, George Barsi, the 1925 athlete: Betty Colin, the poet- ess: Melvin Belli and Cliffton Frisbie, the debaters: Edward Fong, the ora- tor: Dorothy Eproson, the musician: Sam Sherman, the scholar: Ernest Lonsdale, the journalist: Don Carr, the actor:-and then dipping her pen again in the clear blue above will write for all to read: "The greatest class of all."

Ned' was lounging in the big arm chair, smoking his old pipe, as Jack, who was the first to arrive, strolled in. He gave Ned a friendly greeting, stretched himself before the fire, and then reflecting slowly, half sadly, he said, "Say, Ned old boy, do you re- member S. H. S.?" "Do I? How could I forget it?" Ned retorted. "XVell, you know, I've been think- ing a great deal about it lately. Gosh! those were the good old days." "Remember Emmitt Johnson? We kids elected him president: Laura Jane Flint, vice-president: Joe Peters, secretary-treasurerg and Walter Deer- ing, sergeant-at-arms." "Heck, yes! and we won the fresh- man-sophomore oratorical contest. too, if I ain't mistaken." "You bet you're not. Then the next year Emmitt Johnson was presi- dent again, and Evelyn Jones was vice with Huntly Haight handling the money and books and Harry Webster trying to keep the peace." "Maul we sure showed up in ath- letics that year, too. Think! Five men on the football team, five men in basketball, and four on the swim- ming team. Say, wasn't that Harry I-121 Berg a wonder? He sure was a whiz at basketball." "And just put this under your cap. We won the freshman-sopho- more oratorical contest in our second year, too." "You bet, and we sure busted into society when we gave that keen sophomore 'hop'." ' "Goshl that man Berg sure was a wonder. If I remember right, he was elected junior president." "You said it, old timer, and Betty Viebrock was made vice-president: Paul Harrison, secretary-treasurer: and Stafford Wilde, sergeant-at- arms." "Yea! and the women wore purple sweat shirts with a gold J. C. for our class." "Wait a minute. Here! Pipe the cap we wore, this purple thing with the gold trimmings. Right in style then, eh?" "But remember the classy junior- senior prom we gave the class of '25? Gosh, those sure were the keen days: weren't they? It makes me home- sick." "Me, too! Gosh, here we are seniors, ready to graduate and all thanks is due to that old High and the class of '26, the best-if' Before Ned could finish, fellows flocked in, and midst shouts and laughter the pleasant memories of the class of '26 faded into the atmos- phere. Sophomore History Reporter-Hello! Hello? Oper- tor? Give me Stockton 1927- Yes, 19-27-No! l-9-2-7. Thank you. Answer-Hello! Reporter-Hello, get Jordon on the 'phone, please. Hello, Jordon? J ordon-Yes. Reporter-Well, I've finally got that story for you, and it's a peach. Took a long time to round it up, but we've got the scoop on the other papers. Jordon-Fine. Tell it. Reporter-Think it's safe? All right: here goes. It seems that this great class which is now called sopho- more, entered Stockton High School in "23" as freshmen. Of course they were kind of green, but they did things up right and elected Mervin Garibotto president: Georgia Manuel, vice-president: Clara Catherine Hud- son, secretary-treasurer: and Mervyn Littlefield, sergeant-at-arms. They sure did some clever things that year, but gee! I can't begin to tell you over the 'phone. Jordon+Well, go on with the story. Reporter-All right. Then the next year they came back to S. H. S. all ready to succeed, and did they? E43 l Well, I should say. Right off the bat they got together and elected their leaders. Elizabeth Blackmun was president Cmind you a woman lead- erlz J. Henry Smith, vice-president: Helen Thornton, secretary-treasurer: and Jack Eagal, sergeant-at-arms. Gosh! I'm all outa breath. Jordon-Go on. Reporter-All right. Then they adopted a constitution and provided class belts. Say, and they made some wonderful records in athletics and scholarship, and gosh! they brought home some flying colors to S. H. S. when they won in sophomore debat- ing. But listen. To top this all off, they gave a play "The Charm School" that sure Went over big, let me tell you. Then a boy had to come on the scene.

Starting out the year over one thousand dollars in debt, the student body might now be in a bad fix but for the real executive and financial ability shown by this year's Execu- tive Committee. The committee of the year before were unfortunate enough to loan the "Red Mill" pro- duction six hundred dollars. which was never returned on account of the lack of prohts. That committee also went into debt for the annual of last year and was saddled with various other debts. The new committee started out on a new financial plan, proposed by Principal Garrison, and adopted as its motto-"Strictly Cash." The school was financially embarrassed during the first few months of the year, even after the payment of stu- dent body dues. At one time it was thought that S. I-I. S. would not be able to pay the C. I. E. fee on time. but the returns from the alumni foot- ball game barely paid this. Toward the close of the football season the financial standing im- proved considerably, but it was the basketball season that put the school on its feet again. Practically all of the games were played at home, and as each of the many games had enor- mous crowds, the gate receipts were naturally large. Football has little more than paid for itself this year. while basketball has paid its own way and that of many of the minor sports besides. The Spanish Night, held early in l 925, besides being a success from the dramatic side, netted over eighty dol- lars for the treasury. Over three hundred dollars were cleared by the High School Night program given at the California Theatre in January. The commercial and sophomore plays were both financially as well as dra- matically successful, the latter clear-, lf57l ing three hundred and forty-five dol- lars, the largest sum ever made by a sophomore play in this school. The senior play added over six hun- dred dollars to the school coffers. To Mr. Laurance N. Pease goes the major part of the credit for putting the finances on a business basis. His selection as faculty advisor was an excellent one, for it put the business part of the school government where it belonged, in the Commercial De- partment. lt has been Mr. Pease's encouragement of strict economy and a cash basis that has carried the school through its crisis. Mr. Pease has been aided by com- mitteemen who have had the interests of the school at heart and have worked intelligently for its better- ment. The members elected were: chairman, Stephen Dietrich: secre- tary, Ernest Lonsdale: long-term edi- tor, Betty Coffin: senior representa- tives, George Barsi and Jessie Grun- sky: junior representatives. Huntley Haight and Joe Peters: sophomore rearesentatives, Mervin Garibotto: Hrst vice-president of the student bodv. Ethel De Vol: second vice- president, William Trivelpiece. At the beginning of the second semester, Ernest Lonsdale, the secre- tary, resigned to accept the ofhce of the short-term editor of the Guard and Tackle Weekly, who also is a committee member. Gordon Knoles was shortly afterwards elected to suc- ceed him. On the resignation of .les- sie Grunsky, one of the senior repre- sentatives, Hosmer Comfort, was elected from a large field of candidates to succeed her. William Trivelpiece was succeeded by Melvin Belli at the end of the third quarter because of the fact that he had extra work to do and could not serve on the Executive Committee and do the work at the same time.

The cases included smoking. swearing, disorder in as- semblies and halls, walking on the gymnasium floor with shoes on, cut- ting, and general misconduct. Most of the defendants were convicted and recommendations for demerits made. William Trivelpiece started the year as president of the control. I-le had as his secretary Robert Golds- berry, who faithfully kept an account of all meetings, the offenders, and the demerits given in each case. Review of his books for the iirst semester re- vealed that very few students were called up twice, and only two or three more than twice. Trivelpiece's work did much to maintain the order of the school. The Auditorium Control under his direction and leadership prevented any actual disorder, which was a hard thing to accomplish on account of the great number of students. In March, Melvin Belli was elected second vice-president of the Associ- ated Students, and in consequence became president of the Boys' Student Control. Belli selected Robert Clay as his secretary. The new organiza- tion took up anew Trivelpiece's work of keeping up the high moral stand- ards of Stockton High School, and the results indicate that Belli's work has been satisfactory. The students who have been of so much service during the year, on either or both the new and old orga- nizations, are: Melvin Belli, William Trivelpiece, Robert Goldsberry, Rob- ert Clay, William Steinmeier, Ernest Lonsdale. Sam Sherman, Don Carr, Edward Peckler, William Mahaffey, George Barsi, Raymond Johansen, Irving Pahl, Willard Clark, Clarence Diffenderfer, Richard Thomas, and Louis Grimsby. GIRLS' STUDENT CONTROL COMMITTEE Lookout, girls! You had better think again! The members of your "Control" are live wires and intend to keep order in this school. This is the feeling inspired in careless girl students by the Girls' Student Con- trol Committee of 1924-25. Headed by Ethel De Vol, first vice-president of the Associated Students, this group certainly was composed of "go- gettersf' Witness the report of Sec- retary Aileen Kelley, which shows that sixty-two cases were tried in one month. Most of the girls implicated were convicted and recommended for a sufiicient number of demerits to make them think before they again wrote notes in assembly, cut classes, or crowded in the cafeteria line-for it was because of such crimes as these that most of the offenders were "hauled up." Besides these offenses, it is whispered that some of the girls were convicted of "boisterous dis- l60l order" and Hdisobeying the teachers." The fair oHicers have done very well this year. The large number of rallies and assemblies has occasioned a great deal of extra work. The ever- increasing enrollment has made it hard for such a small body to carry on the work, especially so since it has been difficult to acquaint the great number of newcomers with the rules of 'the school. But according to the president, every member of the "Control" has willingly taken her part of this seri- ous governmental work. The presi- dent declares that she had never known a group of girls that has worked harder and more faithfully. The members were: Elyse Dean, Sue Drouin, Esther Fisher, Helen Gravem, Clara Catherine Hudson, Bernice Ingersoll, Carolyn Kerrick, Wanda Stevens, Lenore Wardle, and Paula Weinstein.

H. S. last Sep- tember. Under this plan, instead of sentencing the offender to so many "nights" in detention, any teacher or official. including the Student Con- trol Committee, has the right to recommend, and the discipline com- mittee the power to administer de- merits. In each case the demerits are subtracted from the student's original 100W in deportment. the percentage being marked on his report card each quarter and on his diploma at grad- uation. If he falls below ninety in deportment, he is ineligible to hold any of the major elective oflices of the school, to be manager or captain of any team, president of the Honor Scholarship Society, to represent the school in any kind of contest, in pub- lic speaking, or to take any major part in any play or opera. Any student who falls below eighty in deportment may not repre- sent the school in any athletic. foren- sic, or other activity, and is deprived of all school privileges connected with assemblies, rallies, and social func- ti 0 n s. He is also ineligible to hold any elective or appointive office in the school, in any class, or in any other organization. If he goes below seventy, he is suspended, the length of the suspension to be determined by the offense, and on returning to school he is placed on probation. That the demerit system has been a great improvement over the old plan cannot be doubted in the opin- ion of Mr. Berringer, dean of boys and chairman of the boys' discipline committee, who states, "I think it is the best plan for discipline that I have I63l ever tried." He says that many boys who were before the Student Control Committee almost constantly last year did not appear all year before the discipline committee, and that the few more "hardened criminals" who did appear, did so only once and were not seen again. The teachers who assisted Mr. Berringer on the boys' committee every week were Mr. Bond, Mr. Car- michael, Mr. Caulkins, and Mr. Young. The girls' discipline committee was composed of Miss Mclnnes Cdean of girlsj chairman, Miss Alexander. Miss Coleman, Miss Langmade, and Miss Tyler. Miss Mclnnes, who was much pleased with the new system, makes the following statement: "I believe that in a large school a demerit sys- tem is superior to any other plan for holding students up to their best in conduct. Such a plan assures to the student a fair hearing by mature and unprejudiced judges, and it offers to a wise committee an opportunity for kindly personal advice and ethical teaching. The sessions of the women's committee on discipline have become a meeting ground for an un- derstanding of the principles of right and wrong. Almost all traces of so- called 'discipline' have vanished. The committee and the students meet in friendly conference, and girls usually leave the committee satisfied and un- embittered." Another evidence of the value of and the need of a system like the de- merit system was shown in a visit during the year of officials of the Sacramento High School student body to investigate the Stockton plan with a View to introducing a similar one in the larger school. VOCATIONAL CLUBS One of the features of the voca- tional work during the past year has been the organization of the different departments into clubs for safety and first aid purposes. One of five clubs, the Auto Shop Club, had the follow- ing officers: Francis Queirolo, presi- dent: Edmund Chin, secretary: Eloyd Hayhurst, vice-president: and Yasuo Tanabe, sergeant-at-arms. The Cab- inet Making Club was under the supervision of Georgie Caviglia, president: the Machine Shop Club had Joseph Jones for president: the Advanced Print Shop Club was pre- sided over by Charles Livingston. and the Elementary Print Shop Club elected Emery Lally president. Every Friday afternoon during the past year each of these clubs has met for a period in Mr. Bond's science room to discuss with him the matter of safety in the shops as well as many other scientific matters connected with the shop work. Several times during the year Dr. Rohrbacher of the Emergency Hos- pital has addressed the students on treatment of small accidents, espe- cially those causing head bruises and bone fractures. As a result of these talks a contest was held to determine which club was the most proficient in bandage work. The results showed that the Auto Shop excelled in making splints, while the Print Shop Won in making head bandages. Through this work not only the above-stated goal of the organiza- tions has been reached, but a spirit of friendliness and competition has been developed. The different shops have made themselves prominent in and helpful to the community through the vari- ous projects that have been attempted and completed. The boys in the car- pentry classes have had a busy year, building several garages and a house in Tuxedo Park, the house proving to be one of the best built in Stock- ton. These students have also built some benches to be used in the halls E541 and the gymnasiums, a fine bookcase to be used in Miss Harris' room, and other articles of value to the school. In the wood-joining and turning classes the boys have made many fine articles for their own use. The printing classes with the help of Mr. Comer, the instructor, have succeeded this year in doing what has never been attempted before-the printing of the entire Guard and Tackle weekly. With the help of these school printers, the Weekly has not been late once this year, a feat that has never before been accom- plished. A very special feat was the printing and binding on April 29 of a twenty-four-page magazine edition of the school paper, called "The Tack." Much extra labor was in- volved in the task, and the magazine, from its gaudy orange, green, and red cover to its humorous cuts and well- placed news, was a credit to the print- ing department. Besides all this, the Print Shop has turned out innumer- able show bills, posters, cards, and other printing for school use. The facilities of this shop were greatly added to by a big intertype press acquired during the summer vacation. this being one of the reasons that so much work was possible. In the Auto Shop dozens of autos were repaired during the year. Skilled mechanics have been turned out through this mode of practical teaching. The students have learned by experience everything that is neces- sary to make accurate mechanics. The same holds true in the Machine Shop, where under the able coaching of Mr. Harrison, trained artisans have been produced to the profit of both the school and the student. ln the Machine Shop much of the equip- ment used has been made by the stu- dents themselves. Other valuable equipment has been sold outside, Great credit is due to Mr. E, R. Love, head of the department, for making it one of the best of its kind in the state. Q9 N E, H N FF MOCATIONAL GROUP ORCHESTRA The orchestra, with an increased membership this year of fifty per cent over l923-24, has forged ahead in a manner unsurpassed by many school organizations. Owing to the resig- nation of Mr. Holland Frazee, who formerly had charge of this group, Mr. Blossom was forced to take this additional burden upon his shoulders. He has apparently been successful in this undertaking, as his orchestra has been in demand both in and out of school. Every play during the past year has been introduced by the strains of these concertists. The Spanish, com- mercial, sophomore, and senior plays, and the Girls' Pageant all had the able co-operation of the orchestra. The following students have taken part in the orchestra during the past year: James Barr, George Barsi, George Burns, Harold Bradley, Douglas Burke, Hoyle Carpenter, Harold Convers, Dorothy Cochella, Wesley Dunlap, William Freitas, Dave Freedman, Frances Fogarty, E661 Vernon Gentry, Mary Hass, Wilbur Hartwig, Leroy Kenepp, Dan Jordan, Emmett Littleton, Howard Lyttle, Alice Langille, James Luly, Clifton Morril, Jenny Miller, Frank Miller, Evelyn Newman, Verna Parks, Jack Petersen, Eugene Root, Ralph Rey- nolds, Hulet Rule, Harold Rush, Georgiana Reid, Donna Schaeffer, Joe Sweet, Fred Selly, Walter Schene- wark, Virl Swan, Arthur Sayles.

BAND Many and varied were the per- formances given by the 1924-25 band. The musicians entertained the students at all the football games played here and journeyed to Lodi for the final game there. Before the football game with Sacramento, the band led the annual Unightshirt pa- rade" down California Street and played during the rally on Hunter Square. The players gave a concert at the same place to rouse enthusiasm for the Community Chest during the campaign in February. A very suc- cessful concert Was 'given in the mid- dle of May in the assembly. The band also took a very creditable part in the Music Week concerts. Even with all these entertainments the stu- dents feel that hardly enough of these excellent exhibitions have been given. Many students have expressed the hope that more concerts will be given in the future. To Mr. Andrew Blossom goes the credit for producing such an excellent organization. He has taken raw ma- terial and made a company of finished artists. During the year, several new clarinets and two new French horns have been acquired and will greatly add to the facilities of the depart- ment. The band members are: George Barsi, James Barr, George Burns. Harold Bradley, Oscar Breitenbucher, Shirley Crippen, Willard Clark, Hoyle Carpenter, Harold Convers, Ed Chin, Herbert Clough, Stephen Dietrich, Wesley Dunlap, Lesley Drury, William Freitas, Vernon Gentry, William Garden. John Gar- den, Guernsey Holt, William Hunter, John Hancock, George Hough, Hunt- ley Haight, Frank Jury, Emmett Lit- tleton, Clifton Morrill, Donovan. l67l Z l A UAMICALE 'FRANCAISE From the rocky stretches of the Calaveras River near Jenny Lind to room eleven, main building, S. H. S., from the footlights in the famed au- ditorium to those in the ancient assembly, ran the course of this year's activities of "L'Amicale Francaise." Despite the glamour of the audito- rium stage and the "pique-nique," what were probably the c1ub's great- est triumphs were the programs held in the old assembly hall. Undoubtedly of the best quality, these programs were especially marked by their variety. A speech in French by a French woman. Madam Chosson, vocal solos, piano solos, dance solos, orchestra numbers, a speech by a college French student, and several lively French skits were a few of the numbers presented. The French spoken by members of the club in the plays, Madam Chosson labeled as excellent examples of real French. Lucy Ritter was program committee chairman all year. ' "La Familie," a character song, "La Marseillaisef' and the "Barca- l63l rolle," sung by the club on Open House Night, were among the "big hits" of the evening. Song practices were held periodically all year. The picnic, held at Jenny Lind, was a final reward to the efforts of the members. Much delayed by April showers, it finally took place on April 25, a beautiful Saturday. and was well attended and enjoyed. The club planned to entertain the Latin and Spanish Clubs at the last meeting of the year. As it was a new, or revived, or- ganization, a distinctive fleur-de-lis pin was secured as an emblem. Douglas Fuller was president all year: Dorothy Catching and Helen Gravem were each vice-presidents one semes- ter: Bernita Salmon and Helen Thornton were secretaries: Ruth Sat- terlee was treasurer: and Charles Learned and Don Carr were ser- geants-at-arms. Miss Douglas, head of the French department, Miss Lukes, and Mr. Donoho gave much valuable assist- ance to the club. EL' CASINO ESPANOL Leaping into fame on the night of December 9 with the production of "La Noche Espanola" CSpanish Nightj, S. H. S.'s young Spanish Club, "El Casino Espanol," suc- ceeded in staying in the lime light all year. That the club should attempt such an enterprising undertaking as 'a play during its first year in this school speaks well for the liveness of the members. "La Noche Espanola," the proceeds of which went for the purchasing of Spanish books for the library, was one of the successes of the year. It was composed of a group of dances, songs, and plays, and is written up elsewhere in this annual. The club's meetings were presided over all year by Richard Thomas. Other ollicers were: for the first semester-Placido Lazora, vice-presi- dentg Robert Robertson, secretary, Gladys Stevens, treasurer: John Humphreys, reporter. For the second semester, Bessie Black was vice-presi- dent and David Suzuki, assistant. Among the other activities of the year were the presentations of "La Cachuchan and a toreador dance at a special assembly and on Open House Night. A Spanish orchestra was also organized under the leader- ship of Dorothy Eproson. At a meeting near the end of the year two plays, "La Broma" CThe Jokej and "El Joven Medico Infor- tunado" QThe Unfortunate Young Doctorj were given before the club by Miss Bach's llB class. Those taking part in 'iLa Broman were: Mervin Garibotto, as Antonio, the father of Carmen: Wade Stewart, as Luis Aguilar, the lover: Marie Quinn, as Carmen. the heroine: and Ruth Green as Adela, the Maid. ln "El Joven Medico Infortunadou were: La Verne Sanguinetti. as Doctor Can- tante: Harold Waggoner. as the "ca- ba1lero:" and Evelyn Reid, as the "senora." Much of the credit for "El Casino Espanol's" busy year is due to Mr. Donoho, Miss Bach, Miss Lukes, and Mr. Whyte.

Needless to say, the scribes did just as thorough a job as they do on the paper and forced the banquet to be as near perfect as such an occasion could ever be. Eloquent speeches of different types were made by Douglas Fuller, Sam Sherman, Betty Coffin, Robert Carr C1922 long term editorl, Clin- ton lVlcCombs fclub presidentj , Dor- othy Lloyd, and Virgil Belew. In an impromptu talk, Miss Osborn praised the young reporters highly and left them feeling like college sophomores. Mr. Reynolds, the main speaker. told of the Guard and Tackle when he was on the staff and gave a general idea of what a news- paper reporter must be and do. He stressed especially the great oppor- tunity for service to the community which the newspaper man has, and 01 concluded by reading Edgar A. Guests' poem, "The Newspaper Man." Excellent work was done by Ernest Lonsdale, toastmaster, and especially the cooks,' Betty Coflin, Sophie Passovoy, and Harla Scovell. Virgil Belew performed the task of head waiter with the ease of a pro- fessional. A sudden, impromptu, but quite successful number of "The Tack," a thirty-two page magazine issued on "Tacky Day," was produced by club and staff members on April 29. Be- ing done in less than the time usually devoted to a regular weekly, this was felt to be a proud undertaking. The shortness of time was due to the late decision as to the date of Tacky Day. A trip through the office of the "Stockton Evening Record" was en- gineered by the club on April 28. Club officers were: president, Clinton lVlcCombs: vice-president, Muriel Robertson: secretary-treasurer, Sophie Passavoy: sergeant-at-arms, Betty Coffin. LATLN CLUB The Latin Club of Stockton High School entered on a new and big year on October 2, 1924, when a meeting was called for the election of officers. The following were elected: Dollie Mason, president: Frank Wilbur, vice-president: Mary Louise Leistner, secretary-treasurer: Joe Mer- chasin, sergeant-at-arms: Clara Cath- erine Hudson, song leader: and James Cassel, yell leader. On November 6 a committee com- posed of Danalah Peterson, John Hawkes, and La Faye De Whitt recommended for membership about a dozen students who were all ad- mitted. Dr. Fred L. Farley, Head of the Classical Department at the College of the Pacific, then addressed the Latinists on the subject of "Laughin' and Grief." A Latin party was given in the high school cafeteria on the evening of Saturday, December 6. Those present were divided into four groups, each with a captain. The groups then competed in various games, the one headed by Clara Cath- erine Hudson winning. Twenty-six new members swelled the club rolls on January 8. At this meeting models illustrating Roman life. made by members of Miss L. Williams' IOA Latin class, were shown to the club. One, a bust of Caesar made by Elizabeth Dozier. attra:ted special notice. Others were of a catapult, a war galley, a spear and shield. a Roman camp, and a plough. On February 5 an election was held. Bob Valentine was elected presidentg Mary Louise Leistner, vice- presidentg Frank Wilbur, secretary- treasurer: Charles Anderson, ser- feant-ataarmsz Dollie Mason, song leader: and Jack Eagal, yell leader. On March 5 thirty-one new members were admitted. Mr. Weber gave at that meeting a very interesting talk on medieval Latin. "Off With His Head," a Latin playlet, was presented at the meeting on April 4. At the time this article was writ- ten, plans were being discussed for the annual Latin picnic, which is the biggest thing on the club's calendar. E711 I e SCIENCE CLUB Although not as active as in past years, the Science Club of 1924-1925 was nevertheless able to make itself known in the school. The great prospects that were before the organi- zation at the commencement of the year vanished when unfortunate changes in the programs of some of the members and the working after sthool of other members left but a very few able to take a really active interest. However, meetings were regularly held and interesting programs pre- sented. Such talks as one on "Astronomy" by Louis Fisher and "Static Electricity" by Warren Doe, and a number of unusual and attrac- tive experiments by' club members and science teachers were on the pro- gram for the year. Several of the charter members who were attend- U21 ing the College of the Pacific visited the meetings. Among other features. plans were made for the annual trip to the Mt. Hamilton observatory and also for a journey to the famous observatory on Mt. Wilson, near Los Angeles, but when this was written, the trips had not materialized. As the club has made the Mt. Hamilton trip a yearly event, there is a good chance that it will be carried through de- spite adverse conditions. Charles Crowell was elected head scientist for the year in September, with Louis Fisher, vice-president: Warren Doe, secretary-treasurer: and Raymond Davis, sergeant-at-arms. The membership committee consisted of Louis Fisher, Jabez Comfort, and Ray Davis. PHILOPHYSEAN CLUB A group of girl scientists, aided by Miss Olsen, organized last fall the Philophysean Club, more commonly known as "the girls' science club," with the purpose of forwarding the interests in science among the girls of S. H. S. That this purpose has been accomplished with a vengeance cannot be doubted. The paramount event of the year was a trip on January 30 and 31 aboard the T. C. Walker to San Francisco to visit the Steinhart Aqua- rium and Golden Gate Park. After a very "thrilling" night at sea. a few of the members arose at 2:00 a. m. to see the passage through San Fran- cisco Bay. Once in San Francisco. the girls left immediately for Golden Gate Park, where they visited the conservatory. the aquarium, the avi- ary, the museum, and the animal dis- play. The specimens in the aqua- rium were explained to the club by the director, Dr. Evermann. The s:ientists also had the privilege of meeting the late Honorable M. H. DeYoung. Lunch was eaten in the quaint surroundings of the Japanese Tea Garden. In the afternoon a visit was made to the beach and the Cliff House, followed by a return to the "ship" and a tired, quiet journey back to Weber Avenue. . To make the meetings more inter- esting, adult scientists were invited to talk to the club and gave some very interesting lectures. 'One of these, Hilda Schneider of the San Joaquin County Health Department. gave a series of talks on First Aid. A picnic was also planned for Wild Cat Can- yon on April 18. The officials elected by the club were: Mae Petzinger, president: Jess'e Hall, vice-president: Margaret Wisler. secretary-treasurer. Three teachers. Miss Olsen. Miss Hawkins. and Miss Butters. did much to help the club. mr ' .11-'t l73l X V-'X -V -......14YJ l THE HI-Y CLUB The Hi-Y Club is the only club of its kind in Stockton High School. Its members are selected on the basis of worth and purpose to serve. The club really becomes the Christian "service" club of the high school, ra- diating the principles of Christ through individual and club life and activities. The avowed purpose of the club it "to create, maintain, and extend, throughout the school and community high standards of Chris- tian characterf' Its slogan is: "Clean speech, clean sports, clean scholarship, and clean living." This club is for eleventh and twelfth grade boys and meets every Wednesday at 6: 45 p. m. at the Y. M. C. A. to discuss school problems and to better school and community life. lt has a membership of fifty with an average attendance of thirty- four. The following are some of the ac- tivities of the organization: Gui- dance of freshmen at the beginning of the term: program given at Byron Methodist church by the Gospel Team: and aid to poor families at Christmas and Thanksgiving: baby shower given to "Uncle" Bunnell, boys' work director of the local "YH: organization of Hi-Y club at Ripon: clean speech campaign: and organi- zation of basketball team which played Brentwood High School var- sity and Sacramento Hi'-Y, the local club having the winning team. The officers for the iirst semester were: Clarence Diffenderfer, presi- dent: Dwight Campbell, vice-presi- dent: Herman Bargmann. secretary: and Ralph Nagle. treasurer. The second semester Gordan Knoles was president: Joe Tremain, vice-presi- dent: Ovid Ritter, secretary: Don Clark, treasurer: and Floyd Russell, sergeant-at-arms. With these oin- cers the club made much progress in the advancement of its purpose. JUNIOR HI-Y Although the Junior Hi-Y is practically a new club in Stockton High, it has progressed very rapidly both in membership and activities. It is made up of freshmen and sopho- mores and meets every Monday eve- ning at 6:00 o'clock for a dinner meeting and Bible study. The or- ganization was sponsored by Charles Schleicher and Mr. Lundley, College of the Pacific students. The officers of the club for the first semester were: J. Henry Smith, president: Mervin Littlefield, vice- president: Ted Hathaway, secretary: James Hazlett, treasurer: and Jack Scantleberry, sergeant-at-arms. For the second semester Talcot Mather was president: Fred West, vice-presi- dent: Alwyn Briones, secretary: Ad- dison Fording, treasurer: and Carl Page, sergeant-at-arms. These ofli- cers have been very active in arranging the programs and activities of the club during the past two semesters. Some of the activities were, Mother and Son banquet, Ladies' night, Father and Son banquet, playing for senior Hi-Y, promotion of clean speech campaign, rally and open house night Cclosing sessionj. The club sent representatives to con- ferences at Sacramento, Fresno, and Mount Hermon and also made a trip to San Francisco, to see the Paci- lic fleet and to Richmond to visit the Richmond Hi-Y. The club had a basketball team which carried out a victorious season, winning all their league games. The principal speakers of the year were: Dr. Farley, dean of men at the College of the Pacificg Reverend White and Reverend Shaw from local churches: 'ADad" Elliot and Mr. R. J. Charles, Y. M. C. A. Workersg Bob Breeden, and Dr. Tully C. Knoles, graduate manager and president of College of the Paciiic respectively. The following members of the club have received jeweled pins, which are given to those obtaining the high- est merits in the club: Malcolm Bell, Bernard Rule, Mervin Littleiield, Talcot Mather, J. Henry Smith, Carl Page, and Alwyn Briones. 761 L BOYS VOCATIONA JUNIOR RED CROSS From the little children of far- away Guam to the soldiers of Whip- ple Barracks, Arizona, extended the service of the Junior Red Cross of S. H. S. which also quite overstepped this year its usual amount of good work done in local districts. Every- thing on the schedule was attacked with vigor by the chairman, Ovid Ritter: the secretary. Roblin Hewlett: and the faculty adviser, Miss Mc- Innes. First on the eventful program of the year came the Armistice Day assembly, the annual assembly of the Junior Red Cross. Mr. J. W. Pearce, who spoke on "Lessons of Armistice Day," was the chief speakerf Mr. Pearce summed up the question of peace in the words: "Until we take in the Whole World in our thinking and use common sense and charity in our judgment, there will be no per- manent peace." Edward Fong, member of the pub- lic speaking class, presented an inspir- ing message to the students in his talk on "Our Contribution Towards Peace." A beautifully expressive tribute to "Our Heroes" was the con- tribution of Melvin Belli. He urged the seniors to linish up the work of former classes and place a memorial tablet in the auditorium in honor of the S. H. S. students who lost their lives in the World War. Another bit of work done in con- nection with Armistice Day was the float that appeared in the Armistice parade. Those who worked on this were: Richard Thomas and Olive Nevins, who did the art work: Mr. Van Vlear's wood working class, who built the foundation: and the American Legion and Senior Red Cross, who donated money to pay the expenses. Rena Passavoy took I77l the part of a Red Cross nurse, and four other students represented some of the different nationalities aided by this institution. Twenty-live Christmas boxes for the children of far-distant Guam were the work of ten girls' adviser sections. Such articles as rag and celluloid dolls, ribbons, crayons, picture books. puzzles. marbles, and tops composed the contents. The adviser groups doing the work were: Miss CrosbV's, Miss Daly's. Miss Bach's, Miss Har- ris's, Miss M. U. Howell's, Miss Keniston's, Miss Kingsbury's, Miss Lang's, Miss Langmade's, and Miss Montgomery's. Christmas time was perhaps the busiest season of the year for the Red Cross workers. Shortly before vaca- tion they sent out the call for regis- tration money from the adviser sec- tions, a call which was promptly answered with donations of as much as four or five times the amount asked. Some of this money was sent for subscriptions to the Junior Red Cross Magazine, and the rest was used to buy sugar for the candy sent to the tubercular soldiers in Whipple Barracks. The candy itself was made by Miss Post's cooking classes. Sev- eral letters and post cards were re- ceived from the men thanking the Junior Red Cross and wishing them a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Joined by the Associated Girls. the organization did much helpful work in sending out Christ- mas boxes to needy families of Stock- KOH. The Junior Red Cross, beingthe most unselfish and benevolent organi- zation in the school, its work and efforts gave the students excellent practice in real charitable work. 0 D OLE DAYS 1 Q mil: 67778675 nxuw -.

STORM The sky grew gray Witla end of day. A sultry heat oppressive lay, A feeling tense, Uneasy sense That soon the thund'ring would commen :e. Clouds belated Joined those that waited. Rain hung in air with damp breath , bated. A distant roar The sky now tore, And down the rain began to pour. A howling wind Came from behind: Ne'er was there fury of such kind. It struck in flashes, Made great gashes, Drove the rain as if with lashes. Knives of fire Slashed their ire, Striking lower, striking higher. The thunder drum Rolled on from The heaven's artillery, all as one. Then it passed Away at last: With surly growls its clouds were massed. But sunshine gay Broke through the gray, And sent the vanquished host away. -Marian Los Kamp. l86l TACKY DAY Cnaudy old clothes and costumes of the brightest hue and fantastic style made "Tacky Day" an unusual success on the afternoon of April 29. For the first time in several years, the big circus was omitted, but the stu- dents met in front of the main build- ing and paraded down town in their colorful and extremely 'ltacky" cos- tumes. The Kaberian Club orchestra fur- nished the music for the "nickel dance" given in the boys' gymnasium after the parade. New and clever entertainment numbers were given between the dances. Miss Helen Wilcox olfered a beautiful dance number, "Mazurka Caprice," accom- panied by Mrs. Elva Becker de Mar. A quartet consisting of Don Carr, Percy Dyer. Bob Kozh, and Bill Mahaffey sang "Goodbye, My Coney Island Baby," "It Was Just An Old Beer Bottle" and "Roll Dem Bones," much to the delight of every one pres- QUIZ. Avrom Horwitz and Allison Pope showed the students how to dance the Spanish, Russian, and Dutch dances in burlesque style. The prize dance was won by Ruth Ferguson and Jack Reid, while Yvonne Johns and Fred West succeeded in capturing the prizes for the best costumes. The students were evidently hungry be- cause the soft drink, candy, and hot dog concessions were entirely sold out when "Tacky Day" closed at six o'clock. NIGHT SHIRT PARADE A noisy and cheerful funeral took place on the night of October 24 when an efhgy of Sacramento was consigned to the flames of a huge bonfire on Hunter Square. The parade was held for the purpose of arousing spirit and support for the Stockton-Sacramento football game which took place the next day. About two hundred figures clad in nightshirts or pajamas capered up California Street after forming at the boys' gymnasium at 7:15 o'clock. The funeral procession was led by the pall bearers of Sacramento's coHC1n, and the funeral hymn, played by the band which followed after the coffin, was "LHaill Hail! The Gang's All Here!" JOURNALISTIC CONVENTION May l 5-16 was the date set for the annual stream of newspaper scribes to wend their way to Stanford Uni- versity to the Journalistic Conven- tion. Each school was allowed six delegates, and the only expenses were those to and from the university. An interesting program was given which included: speeches by Chester Rowell and two other noted news- paper meng discussions of problems relating to the publishing of a news- paper: meetings of the California Interscholastic P r e s s Association: awarding of prizes offered by Cali- fornia newspapers and magazines for high school journalism efforts. It was arranged that delegates would be I87l housed and fed at fraternity. sorority and club houses during their stay. Second place was won by the Guard and Tackle weekly, another great triumph for Stockton High School journalism, as the rating for the school paper fell only fifteen points out of a possible thousand, be- low the first-prize paper, "Scribe News" of Oakland Technical High. The delegates were: faculty ad- viser. Miss Osborn: secretary vice president, Dorothy Carrow: short- term editor, Ernest Lonsdale, short- term manager, John Humphries: associate editor of weekly, Virgil Belew. CALIFORNIA NIGHT The success of the first Stockton High School "California Night" of 1924-25 was proved by the laughter and approval of an exceedingly large audience. The largest show house in the city was twice packed by the "well wishers" of S. H. S. who showed their approval in an enthusi- astic manner throughout the evening. The purpose of the entertainment was twofold: the financial support of "G. 25 T." annual and the pleasure it gives the students to entertain their friends. Financially it was very suc- cessful as proved by the clear pront of three hundred dollars. The main picture of the evening was entitled "Merton of the Movies" featuring Glen Hunter and Viola Dana, The entertainment was varied by a vaudeville which was given en- tirely by students. lt' was appropri- ately opened with three beautiful dances by members of Miss Hill's dancing class, The first was a lively and colorful Spanish dance by Ma- rian Los Kamp and Eugenia Quail. This was followed by a Grecian dance in which Beatrice Satterlee and Dorothy Reynolds showed unusual grace and charm. The dancing act was concluded by Lucile Threlfall and Helen Wilcox, who gave a lively and realistic interpretation of an Apache dance. 'Alkey" Goldsberry and "Clancy" Lonsdale destroyed the equilibrium of the aud-ience with their funny jokes and songs. William Woodford, a star of "The Red Mill," last year's comic opera, greatly pleased the audi- ence by singing two sweet and well- rendered solos. The last act featur- ing Don Carr and Emmitt Johnson proved quite a "hit." These two sang several solo and duet numbers which were encored many times. Great credit is due to Ernest Lons- dale, who so ably managed the affair. TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY September 15, 'l925, was the memorable day on which Stockton High School celebrated her twentieth birthday on the present campus. lt was the nrst student body assembly of the new semester, and it was with enthusiasm that the students hastened to the auditorium on the bright. golden morning which made so splen- did a setting for Stockton High School's 'Abirthday party." On the beautifully decorated stage sat several members of graduating classes of past years who had found time to come and pay their respects to their "alma mater" at the end of her second decade. President Stephen Dietrich, occupying the chair, addressed the students and told briefiy the purpose of the assembly. The progress of Stockton High School was reviewed by Mr. Garrison from its first small beginning to its lS8l present development. Mr. Dietz spoke on the opportunities of the present day and the value of educa- tion. Closing the assembly came Earl McDonald, graduate of 1923, who spoke on students' duties to themselves and to the world. Music throughout the program gave added inspiration and beauty to the occasion. Two solos by Mr. Irving Neumiller and several piano numbers by Mr. James King were received with sincere enthusiasm by the students. Both men are former graduates of Stockton High School. A similar program was given in the evening for the benefit of the par- ents and friends of Stockton High School students. Honorable Will C. Wood, state superintendent of schools, was the main speaker on the evening program. OPEN HOUSE NIGHT V "Welcome to Our Parents" was the true slogan for the entire school on -Open House Day, December l4, when the doors of this institution were thrown open Wide to the public. Plants and ferns decorated the main hall and gave an air of festivity throughout the whole school. ln many of the rooms were arranged ex- hibits of the students' work, and many of these were very lovely as well as interesting. The art exhibits attracted many people with their bright posters and drawings as well as their many dainty, useful objects: a stream of visitors made for the cooking room, attacted by the de- licious odors issuing therefrom: while many others found their way into the sewing and typing rooms, woodshop, and gymnasium. A tremendously clever program in which were represented different clubs, classes, and organizations of the high school was presented in the auditorium at 9:00 o'clock. Ovid Ritter of the public speaking class welcomed the parents and friends and urged them to consider every day "Open House Day." An interesting demonstration from the typing class, songs from the French and Spanish Clubs, and clever playlets from the Latin and oral ex- pression classes made the program a highly entertaining and enjoyable one. The Spanish and French classes supplied a colorful part of the pro- gram. Betty Coffin told in a most interesting manner the meaning of the words "Guard and Tackle." Open House Night was a success. The parents liked it and learned more about their children's school. That was the purpose in giving it. TO MY FOUNTAIN PEN Ah but, my mountain pen, thou grievest mel Thy service is both troublesome and clear. Oh, how thy ceaseless weeping makes me fear For pockets which give riskful house to thee! When oft at deep, dark night, I need my key, And from the hall the clock's night bell I hear, Into my pocket's depths deep down I peer: I clutch, and o'er my fingers flows thy ebbing sea. Yet when thy virtues in my thoughts do dwell, I with remorse recall thy priceless use, My tardy patience taxed with hard abuse. With all thy faults, full well, I think of thee And feel thy worth and cherish long , thy good- l see that thou hast given all I would. -Marian Los Kamp. E391 JAZZ ORCHESTRA School Parties A shriek from the saxophone. some crashing chords of the piano, a roll of the drum, and the first school party proclaimed its appearance on September 19. The dance was given in the boys' gymnasium, and the op- portunity was taken to welcome the freshmen to the school. A good crowd turned out for this first social gathering, and the prevailing good spirit marked it as a great success. The music was supplied by the High School Jazz Orchestra. The committee on dancing showed itself to be an energetic body when October 17 ushered in another school party. This dance was voted a really happy occasion by the large number of students that attended, Music was supplied by Dorothy Eproson, Frank Miller, Verl Swan, Harold Rush, Emmitt Johnson, and Errol Wil- liams. The Tacky Day Dance on May 5 l90l was indeed an enjoyable occasion. The Junior-Senior Dance had not yet taken place but was anticipated to be the crowning party of the year. The Granada orchestra which played for the next school party, ,given soon after, proved irresistible even to the chaperons, These digni- fied personages joined with the stu- dents in having a good time, and all were sorry when "Home Sweet Home" was played earlier than usual. 'Owing to the almost constant use of the gymnasium floor during bas- ketball season, it was impossible to have school dances at frequent inter- vals. However, the few that were given drew crowds of students and were seemingly much enjoyed. ln- deed, in summing up the term of 1924 and 1925, one might well say that it stood out as a year of gay, successful parties which were well attended and heartily enjoyed. ROTARY REPRESENTATIVES The Rotary Club of Stockton has honored Stockton High School by choosing each semester two boy stu- dents to represent the student body at the Weekly meetings of the club. Robert Cioldsberry and Harry Berg were the first semester delegates, and Harry Berg and Stephen Dietrich were representatives for the second semester, The boys are chosen on the basis of scholarship and prominence in activities. Privileged to hear the hu- morous lectures delivered by influen- tial men at the club, the boys were greatly beneited. Since the Stockton Rotary Club adopted the plan of having student representatives from the high school, other Rotary Clubs of the state are taking up the idea. .X Exp T MACHINE SHOP CLUB l91l GLEE CLUB "Hail to California" sung by a chorus of about twenty-five U. C. students opened the long-looked-for ward-to program of the University of California Glee Club. The pro- gram was given on the night of Janu- ary 31 under the auspices of the high school, and a large crowd of towns- people and students attended. Songs, classical and humorous, were sung by the chorus of students while a varied selection of dances, in- strumental numbers, monologues and dialogues was given by different in- RUSSIAN A memorable occasion was the ap- pearance of the famous Russian Ca- thedral Quartette before the student body of Stockton High School on December 28. A varied selection of beautiful songs was sung by the members of the quartette, attired in striking and appropriate costumes, and displaying exquisite harmony of voices. "The Lord's Prayer," in the Rus- dividuals. The numbers were en- cored again and again by the audi- ence. A saxophone solo by Lovett and a violin solo by Ray Taylor were much applauded numbers. One of the most enjoyable features of the program was the glee club jazz band. Other unique and clever numbers, too many to mention, were also given, and the audience radiated gratifying satisfaction as it filed out of the audi- torium, QUARTETTE sian tongue and as it is sung in Russian Cathedrals-without music, was a popular number, followed by Russia's i'Alma Mater." Rachmani- noHi's "Prelude," Chopin's "Etude" and l'lVlinute Waltz," a humorous love scene between two Russian peas- ants, and the slow, swaying rhythm and full rich tones of the stirring "Volga Boat Song",-all won the enthusiastic applause of the audience. PACKARD LECTURE "Uncle Sam's people" were clev- erly sketched by Mr. Alton Packard, a noted American cartoonist, in an address to the students of Stockton High School on November 21. Many types of American citizens from Eskimos to Arkansas farmers appeared magically on the big white sheets of paper. Mr. Packard's mas- terpiece was a color drawing of his son fishing, a sketch of one of his paintings. Another "hit" was a hu- morous song entitled "When You Get What You Want. You Don't Want It." Mr. Packard concluded his program by giving a short talk on the brilliant future of cartooning. i ff"lli1,,'i,5fmWl "li1llii':is'll, ,, Lmlff 0 mm mlfiinnilurm guy, M"'l1,,,fff Willlllliwnmmnllll HHH 4 l ,mlm ml lmumll lllillll l Hill ll lmllllrlllmll llllltlllllllitlllillimlllil ' " l mf' 1'l.ili"lllll' lm," Qf i ,iillllli lili iw i,,lli,f.fW,4 Wfiriillnnw'wlniifiilgllfif i'lln,llll'l 3'lillllIa'gi'w Mifllllhp. rp 1 iilmi ru li A iiiul 'uni ii 5-, T 4 va GIRLS' LEAGUE CONVENTION Girls! Girls! Girls! And every- where-girlsl So must have thought the residents of Hanford when the annual convention of the San Joa- quin Valley Girls' Leagues took place there on November 15, 1924. Rep- resentatives from many different high schools met to discuss various mat- ters concerning girls' Welfare and to elect officers for the convention to be held the following year. At this election of officers, Stockton High School was elected to choose a presi- dent for the next year from her stu- dent body: While Prenso. Manteca. and Tulare were elected to select a vice-president, secretary, and treasurer respectively. It was decided that the advisory board should be composed of the deans from Hanford, Reedley, and Stockton. V An excellent program, instructive as well as enjoyable, was provided for the representatives of the schools and was much enjoyed by them. During the morning session the business affairs of the League were attended to. and a convention place was selected and officers elected for 1925. ln the morning session also, Robert Cun- ningham, president of the Hanford student body, addressed the delegates and expressed the appreciation in his school of the Girls' League. Several musical selections were given, and a fifteen-piece girls' orchestra, strik- ingly uniformed in green and White, added much to the enjoyment of the occasion. A girls' glee club also en- tertained. At noon a delicious lunch- eon was served to the delegates and sponsors. "The Dear Little Wife," a comic play, opened the afternoon session, and was followed by a Japanese com- edy put on by Lemoore Union High School. The real interest of the en- tire convention, however, came in the discussions on topics which were of special interest to girls. These dis- cussions covered: The Standardiza- tion of the Point System in Athletics, led by Justine Church, Hanford High School: Simplicity in Dress Enforced by the Girls' League, led by Nancy Haskins, Tulare High School: Social Service Work in the Girls' League. led by Mildred Ellerby, Modesto High School: The Preparation of the Girls' League Yearly Program, led by Gene- vieve Bancroft, Madera High School. This completed the convention pro- gram. The convention of the San Joa- quin Valley Girls' League will take place in Stockton in 1926 and will be presided over by Clara Catherine Hudson who was elected president. Delegates have found these Girls' League conventions most instructive and helpful as well as highly enter- taining, and the conventions serve to bring the girls of all schools into a friendly attitude and willing co- operation. Delegates who Went to the Girls' from Stockton Ferguson, Clara League convention High Were: Ruth Catherine Hudson, and Pauline accompanied by of girls. Dunn.

Once a month meetings were held by the association and were looked forward to with interest because usu- ally an entertainment was given after the business had been completed. A new plan was devised this year by President Ruth Ferguson, which has proved to be very successful. By this plan capable girls and teachers were appointed on various commit- tees, and the girls as a whole were then made to feel that they were help- ing the Girls' Association and were needed for its success. The girls on these various committees gained ex- perience by the work they did and had a greater interest in the organiza- tion. The four standing committees were the welfare committee, commit- tee on social affairs, committee on athletics, and a press committee. L94l The duty of the welfare commit- tee has been to devise and superintend plans for any social service work in the community or in school, of which the association approves. It also provides methods of developing and improving the Girls' Association. The committee on social affairs wel- comes the freshman girls and stran- gers in the school and plans entertain- ments for the association. The ath- letic committee encourages and im- proves girls' athletic activities. The press committee writes reports of all meetings and activities of the asso- ciation for the Guard and Tackle weekly and the city papers. Other committees are the girls' rooms, social service, scrap book. ab- sent girls, and financial committees. The girls' rooms committee has charge of the girls' rest-room during the absence of the matron and in- spects daily all girls' rooms. The social service committee gives the girls an opportunity to help the needy and the unfortunate. The committee on absent girls keeps in touch with all girls who are absent from school. The finance committee manages the finance of the associa- tion. The teachers and girls on the com- mittees during the year were: Ath- letics and personal efliciency-Nliss Bradstreet and Miss Bliss fdirectorsj , Mae Petzinger Cchairmanj, Dora Blair, Elsie Dondero, Katherine Mc- Kee.

She presided ably most of the last quarter, SPANISH DANCES l95l "The best freshman reception Helen Wilcox. Helen's dancing made FRESHMEN RECEPTION yet!" was the opinion voiced by a large number of those who attended the reception given by the Girls' Association on November 8 to wel- come the freshman girls. Among the numbers of the excel- lent program that followed after the customary serpentine around the boys' gymnasium, the most enjoyed feature was a burlesque, "A Scene in Hollywood." written by Dorothy Eoroson. The burlesque was on "Carmen," and at times the laughter of the audience drowned out all other sounds. Those who took part in this number were Dorothy Eproson, Cleone Pearce, Dorothy Hammond, Marie Hands, Gertrude Gillick, La Vergne White, Caroline Kerrick, Lucy Ritter, Clara Catherine Hud- son, Francis Cochella, Harriet Smith, and Uzilla-Dean. Two lovely dances were given by the upper class girls glow with pride to show their little sisters some real art. A tango by Caroline Kerrick and La Vergne White completed the numbers on the program, which end- ed all too soon for the apprecative audience. Dancing was enjoyed after the pro- gram, and punch and cookies were served as refreshments. The little freshmen sisters for whom' the re- ception was given were given a truly lovely afternoon's enjoyment by their upper classmates. Many women teachers as well as the girls enjoyed the Hrst freshman reception of this year. The freshman receptions are en- tertainments given by the Girls' As- sociation twice every year. Each re- ception, however, being carefully planned by clever girls, is thought to give more enjoyment than those pre- ceding it. GIRLS' JINX "Green" printed in large green let- ters on white paper and pinned to the backs of a large number of certain individuals officially announced the arrival of the mid-term freshmen who were welcomed at the second freshman reception on April l7, 1925. A clever skit, the theme of which was the last day of school, was thor- oughly enjoyed by the girls who crowded the boys' gymnasium. The clarion tones of the school bell which was rung by "Miss Fortune," the school teacher, summoned the pupils to school. "Sue Drouinf' whose performance as "Miss Fortune" kept the audience in constant gales of laughter, was a much-worried school teacher. As it was visitors' day and several impor- tant personages CCaroline Kerrick, Elna Lipscomb, Alice Littleton, Uzilla Dean, Bernice Ingersoll, Elea- nor Hancock, and Phylis Threlfalll were present, each pupil was called upon to perform. l95'l A shy little girl was Evelyn Jones who recited "My Daddy," and no less attractive was Dorothv Ham- mond who sang "l'm Nobody's Baby." Ruth Ferguson as "Emanci- nation Proclamation." the colored babv. was esnecially funnv: and Lu- cile Threlfall. who recited "Colum- bus" with great dramatic fervor also caused a great deal of laughter. The other pupils. Marie Hands. Norma Tscbierslcv, La Vergne White. Ger- trude Gillick. Virginia Heller. Clara Hudson. Ruth Weeks. Helen Renfro, Margaret Rose Williams. Roblin Hewlett. Harriet Smith and Marion Van Gilder, also gave performances that kept the audience constantly laughing. Dorothy Eproson, chairman of the entertainment committee, arranged the program and accompanied the various numbers on the piano. Fol- lowing the program, ice cream was served to the girls, and dancing was enjoyed. POSTURE DRIVE "Girls, do you stand up straight?" This was the great question asked every girl in Stockton High School during the busy week of the Annual Posture Drive. The drive started on December 8 and concluded with a girls' assembly Friday morning. Pre- vious to this year, the posture drive lasted only one day, but this year it was conducted on a larger and more thorough scale. Each girl was given, at the Hrst of the week, a tag stating that she had good posture. Teachers and mem- bers of the student control were privi- leged to remove the tags if the girls were seen "slumping." A severe test was given each class, and they could keep their tags only by passing these rigorous examinations. Cards illus- trating posture were posted in each class room. A big posture review was the fea- ture of the assembly. The band SOCIAL SERVICE To those who delight in helping others and who ind happiness in this way, the Social Service Committee offers a broad field in which to work. This committee was organized for the purposes of giving high school girls a little experience and training in social service work, and of helping them End out for themselves what ability they had in this line of work. This committee is by far the most important of all the girls' committees. Under it come various Christmas activities, but these are taken care of mostly under the direction of the Junior Red Cross. During the Christmas season of l924, several girls contributed a small amount of money and took nine children to a theater. The girls also helped to take care of an orphanage. The activities of the committee consist of service at all times to all kinds of people, homes, and institu- tions. The committee provides en- tertainments for the inmates of the l97I played "Alma Mater" while the girls who had successfully retained their tags marched triumphantly across the stage. Following this some clever stunts were portrayed, first showing poor posture, and then good posture. These were received with delight by the girls. Three-minute speeches were then given by Miss Mclnnes, Miss Hill, Miss Bradstreet, and Mr. Pease. The topics were: "What Good Posture Means to Girls," "Pos- ture and Beauty," "Posture and Health," and "Posture as a Business Asset," respectively. The assembly was brought to a merry conclusion by the girls singing "The Ode to Posture" written to the tune of "It Ain't Going to Rain No More." The promoting of good posture in Stockton High School is something for which the girls' gym- nasium teachers are to be thanked. COMMITTEE county hospital, and clever and origi- nal programs have been worked up in past years for that purpose. At the time this annual went to print, nothing had been done about the County Hospital entertainment for this year, but plans were being made for giving one shortly. The Social Service Committee is undoubtedly of great value in that it opens so many fields to the high school girl desiring to take up social service work seriously. Telling stories to the children in the library, providing entertainment both for young and old, and assisting in the day nursery are only a few of the things that await her in the social service field. The Social Service Committee was composed of: Miss Lukes-faculty chairman. Jessie Grunsky-chairman, Mabel Fern Maddox, Merren Bryant, Dorothy Dupont, Eleanor Hancock, and Helen Gravem. Gzirlsl' Athletics- With the passing of the year 1924- l925, the girls of the school find that they have finished their biggest year in athletics. Miss Bradstreet, Miss Hill, and Miss Bliss, girls' physical education instructors, planned a com- plete course of gymnasium activities for the school terms this year, and it was by strict adherence to this sched- ule that the girls have accomplished more than ever before. Each class covered a certain amount of work. The freshmen have had hygiene, formal gymnastics, folk dancing, and entered many athletic events: such as, volley ball, basket- ball, baseball, and track. The soph- omores have had the same activities as the freshmen with playground games substituted for hygiene. Up- per classmen have enjoyed formal gymnastics, interpretive d a n c i n g, competitive playground games, differ- ent athletic activities with the addi- tion of being coached in tennis. The fact that so much enthusiasm has been introduced into the girls' athletic activities this year is largely due to the new Blue and White inter- class competitive system. Under this system, the sections in each "gym" class are divided into two teams, the Blues and Whites respectively, the teams being matched against each other in all games. The final score of each team was marked each day in order to determine whether the Blues E981 or Whites were the stronger team. The girls of the various teams had a great deal of fun choosing team yells and names for themselves, such names as Tarzanettes, Whang-doodles, Ti- gers, and Airdales being used. Tour- naments were held, and the Blues and Whites played off the final games in volley ball during the Fall, basket- ball in the Winter, and baseball, swimming, and track events in the Spring. These all led to the crown- ing athletic events of the year, Field Day, held May 23. Every activity of the past season with a few more added were partici- pated in, a few of which included: track events. basketball distance, bas- ketball goal-throwing, baseball tar- get-strike, jump and reach, potato race, 50-yard dash, and 220-yard dash in four relays. Miss Bliss, who Hnished her first year as an athletic instructor in the Stockton High this year, brought new opportunities for the upper classmen to learn tennis. Miss Bliss also taught the swimming and estab- lished an after-school play period for girls who were interested in working for extra points under the point system established last year. This period, held twice a week, was a great source of enjoyment to the girls. Too much cannot be said of the untiring efforts and time put into the girls' athletic training by the instruc- tors, Although there is no require- ment for any outsideactivity under the girls' athletics, Miss Bradstreet and Miss Hill planned a delightful pageant and gave much of their time in training the girls so that this might be the best program ever spon- sored hy the Girls' Association. The fact that the event proved more suc- cessful than ever before shows that their efforts were not in vain and reveals more than ever the great in- fluence athletics have in the affairs of the girls of the school.

"A Question of Royalty," was presented by the Department of Physical Education for Ciirls, March 28, in the high school auditorium. The folk dances, directed by Miss Bradstreet and Miss Bliss, were first on the program and were cleverly given by-the girls. The divertisse- ments in part one were: l. .lump Jim Crow: 2. The Sailors' Horn- nipe: 3. The Qxen Dance: 4. The Hungarian Rhapsody, interpreting the changing moods of Liszt's "Sec- ond Hungarian Rhapsodyf' danced by Eleanor Eelty and Beatrice Satter- lee: 5. An lrish Folk Group Cal The Irish Lilt, Cbil Rinnce Eada: 6, May Day in an Old English Garden. ln the last number some of the tradi- tional rural dances of old England were given by the freshman girls. The pretty May Queen was Helen Hansen, and around her danced her admirers in their gay-colored dresses. "Row Well, Ye Mariners," "The Black Nag," and "Piccadilly" were the dances in the May Day scene. "A Question of Royalty," an orig- inal dance drama composed by Miss Elizabeth Hill, was presented by Qrchesis, a club of girls especially in- terested and proficient in dancing. The prologue was delightfully given by Hazel Laska. La Vergne White. and Betty Coffin. The make-believe King Cole CEdna Rosel seated "him- self" upon the throne and was enter- tained by his Hfiddlers three." How- ever, the soldiers of Napoleon ar- rested him, and Napoleon CLucy H1001 Ritterj, "king by might and power of the sword," occupied the throne and was entertained by the ladies and gentlemen of the court who danced "Gavotte Directoiref' Further enter- tainment was provided by "Duet Valse" danced by Helen Wilcox and Beraneice Kitt: a Spanish dance by Eugenia Quail: and a dainty duet dance, "Suzanne et Son Ami," by Dorothy Reynolds and Erma Rein- king. Cleopatra, CElizabeth Do- zierj "a queen by divine right and through the glory of her personal- ity." appeared upon the scene, and Napoleon yielded his throne to the lady. Slaves and dancing girls danced for Cleopatra, but, because she was a queen, she failed to join the dance. The Uflddlers three" noted this, and when the Egyptian dances had ended. they played a tune which first enticed Charmion fBeat- rice Satterleej and lras CEugenia Quailj, from their positions of dig- nity: and so compelling did it finally become, that Cleopatra could no longer resist dancing. While she danced, King Cole laughingly re- sumed his seat upon the throne. When the music ceased, she realized the situation, but she and Napoleon both had the wisdom to know that the question of royalty had been cor- rectly answered. Since the presentation of this year's festival, the Board of Education has passed a resolution against inter- pretive dancing at Stockton High School. This pageant, then, will be the last performance of its kind at the school. COURT SCENE FROM FESTIVAL FROM QUESTION OF ROYALTY FROM THE FESTIVAL 104 ' A Mast 1 .

So it is with the old issues of this year's "Guard and Tackle," which the student has either kept in a neat file or else unappreciatedly dis- carded as soon as he finished reading. But whether he has saved or forgot- ten them, the efforts spent in making each paper have not been in the least wasted. The beauty we see in an issue of the weekly HG. 55 T." is first of all a result of very careful planning on the part of the editor. Before the copy is written, the placing of mate- rial is decided upon, and so the thing known as "balance" is obtained. Original ideas to put in the "boxes" are sought and clever words are sum- moned by the editors in the compos- ing of the headlines. Special thought is always given to the proper opinion to be voiced in the editorial column. Besides all this every special edition of the "Guard and Tackle" has its particular purpose. By these meth- ods is the beauty of the old issues of the "G. '55 T." determined. Greeting the students with a de- lightful color scheme of deep orange and black, the Hal1owe'en issue of October 29 was the first special edi- tion of the year. An exquisitely artistic cut in orange and black was designed and made by Thelma Tretheway and Hubert Miller. The delicate story of "The Little Lady in the Pumpkin" and an interesting Halloween History were written for this issue. A big black streamer head on the sport page sent out the glad news: "Governors are vanquished, 6 O " "Turkey, please," the humorous editorial by our dignified D. R. F., was the finest feature of the Thanks- giving issue. A clever cut symboliz- ing the family gathering at Thanks- giving time was made for this edition by the staff artist, Richard Thomas. "Welcome To Our Visitors" char- acterized the purpose of the Open House Edition, issued on December 10. A very helpful guide to visiting parents was the complete "Open House" program. Red and green, the cheerful Christ- mas colors, were Haunted across the four pages of the Christmas edition on December 19. Two Christmas feature stories, a Christmas poem, and a Christmas cross-word puzzle gave character to this special annual edi- tion. The "Journalism Edition" issued on January 21 showed that the cur- rent news writers would soon be able to carry on well the work of the pa- per. Two amusing feature stories were the cleverest work in this paper, which was altogether a choice edi- tion. The mid-year farewell was ex- pressed in the issue of January 28. Pictures of all the mid-year graduates were blocked on either outer column. Among the other memorable features about this last paper issued by first semester staff, was the Farewell edi- torial written by the retiring editor. SECOND SEMESTER SPECIAL EDITION OF WEEKLY With the beginning of the work of the new editor and staff the second semester, the "Kids' Edition" was issued on February 10. This paper broke the precedent of all former 1'frosh" editions by not using the usual green ink or paper. Amusing to the upperclassmen and confusing If110fI to the freshmen, was the story giving advice to the newcomers in the school. "The Charm School," the sopho- more play of the year, was the incen- tive for a special issue on March 17. A clever little cut was placed in either upper corner of the front page to show the improvement in appearance of those who attended "The Charm School." A long account of the play showed that great things were eX- pected of the sophomore actors. By "Champs Again"-in blazing red headlines-was our state basket- ball victory announced in the paper edited on April 22. A large front- page cut of the "Varsity" showed the famous smiles of our "Ironman" Barsi and "Pete" Lenz. But "The Tack!" Indeed it was the most tactless paper ever issued at Stockton High School. On May 5. the long-looked-for Tacky Day mag- azine issue brought pages of accounts of pretzels, snoodle-fish, and debates on the benefits of halitosis. A royal raspberry was given the faculty and everyone in particular. All the de- generates of the "Gat" room were members of the staff. On May 13 appeared the senior play edition. Printed in blue ink, this paper was very attractive, with a large cut in the middle of the front page of two little old gossips sym- bolizing "The Whole Town's Talk- ing," the senior play of the year. "Last came" the "cub" edition, or journalism issue, produced exclusively by the second-semester class in news writing on June 3. Even the rare cartoon which featured this issue was the work of Jean Williams, associate editor: Clarence Diffenderfer being the editor elected by the class.

S!f,,,,E,,,D I .... ml 0 Un ity Triumphant in its glorious victories, awards, and championships, this boun- teous year is heralded by a chorus of cheers. Cheers for what? For that which has brought esteem to our names and laurels to our own crowns! We accept these honors. There is not one among us who has not shared the glory of the Tarzan victories, the C. I. F. titles in basketball, swimming, and track, the de- bating championship, Hrst place in the oratorical contest, and the highest rating in scholarship given to the entire school by Stanford University. These honors cast a beam of light on every member' of the student body of Stockton High School. though in every instance a certain group of energetic individuals is re- sponsible for the great result. The name of Stockton High School is on the lips of every one who today praises the better high schools of California: yet there is one great and vital spirit that is lacking or not sufliciently in evidence at Stockton High School-the spirit that made the Tarzans fight for our victory, the spirit that causes nations to grow mighty, the spirit that will finally unite all peoples of the world-a feeling of unity, of kindly brotherhood, This innate necessity is obviously absent to a great degree between the two main groups that compose a school, the teachers and students, as well as among the students themselves. An awkward situation exists in the former case and is of just as great importance as the latter. The fact is that the teachers and students do not meet each other. Between the teacher's desk, piled high with lore of learning, and the students initial-carved, ink- stained desk, lurks a dark abyss. There seems to be no ground for mutual un- derstanding. There are two sides to this question, but the knowledge of either or both gets us nowhere. Only further bewilderment is introduced, for here is the paradox: the majority of the teachers feel that the students do not appreciate their labors, and since they do not ask for private instruction or help, that they are not interested: and the majority of the students believe that the teachers have no other interest in them than that of the class-room, and that the teachers do not sympathize with their youthful difficulties. Both of these ideas are fal- lacious. This school is full of students who, when a teacher does something kind for them, do not know how to express the gratitude that they feel, and stu- dents who simply ache at heart to go to their teachers, if they but dared, with little troubles and difficulties which not even Mother could understand. On the other hand, it is the sincere belief of the writer that there are scores of unselfish, sympathetic, youth-loving instructors in this institution who would welcome with open arms and hearts the real friendship and confidence of the students. In truth, there have been many exceptions to our seeming rule of indifference during even the past year. The writer recalls several instances in the school where a teacher and a student have become profound and sincere friends. Indeed, it is I1121 the encouragement of these friendships that should inspire faculty and students to "come together and understand." To accomplish this ideal situation, more effort should be made by both parties, both should take the advance step that leads into the path of united strength and fellowship. The second factor concerns the false barriers the students put up between themselves. Because these barriers are built up of such poor and petty material, it seems ridiculous even to discuss the matter. The glorious part about this fail- ure to comply with the unwritten law of our nation, which is unity, is that the strong person ignores all artificial distinctions and goes along doing his own work, helping the school in every way possible, and making scores of truly worth-while friends who can sincerely appreciate him. Nevertheless, the fact re- mains that there are individuals in the society of our school who are social para- sites trying to sap the life out of the student body. These people are known to the majority as Uboresome snobs." The harm these individuals can do is not at all lasting. In fact, the student body is composed of so many other groups who are sincerely working for the good of the school that in the course of events the snobs gradually drop out of school activities in the process commonly known as the elimination of the unlit. This is the truth of the matter as it exists, no matter how bold its expression may seem. But the point of the situation is that unnatural class distinctions are wrong: they should not exist in an institution that is preparing healthy young minds and bodies to be the future citizens of this great democracy! Now when the whole world is struggling to tear away its blindfold, to see all problems in a sane and reasonable as well as ideal light, to do away with the horrors of bloodshed, wholesale murder, and all the degradation that accompanies war and international misunderstanding. should we who are next to hold the reins of the universe between our lingers lose sight of the great and lasting things while we are yet so young, fellow-youths? We are now living in the plastic age of civilization. Standards, ideals, and conventions are all going through a trying period of change. One great thing, understanding of one another, should be taken into thoughtful consideration. The unselfish attitude of true fellowship should be adopted in this school be- tween the teachers and students and among the students themselves. We need each others' friendship. Only by true democracy and unitv of spirit can we carry on the great Work before us now and hereafter, fulfill the promise that the poet foreshadows for us in the following lines: "We are the new generation, seeking new truth. We are the pulsing new blood, we are the Youth!" ON THE COLOR OF THIS BOOK That the annual Guard and Tackle be essentially a blue book is a rather frequently expressed opinion in this school. These critics seem to think that blue is the customary color for S. I-l. S. annuals. In the last ten years, how- ever, there have been but two annuals with blue as the predominant color scheme, and those were the year-books for 1922 and l923. The preference for the blue annual seems to be largely among the upperclassmen, the reason probably being that these students were brought up, as it were, on blue books during their freshman and sophomore years. and, being peace-loving followers of convention, they dislike to see any new custom started, or any old custom which they are not used to reintroduced. Variety is the spice of annuals! The modern movement in journalism for year books tends toward glorious divertissements, such as novelties in color and general artistic make-up that offset any stereotyped method of publication. Last H131 year we had a gray annual! There is no particular reason why the book cannot be any color that is desired instead of following a set plan for a blue and white book or a blue and gold or blue and anything else book for that matter. Be:ause each year the annual is giving more and more prominence to the senior class, it has frequently shown the senior colors. lt will always be representative of the entire school, of course, but it is a final record for every senior in high school of his last crowning year. ' Why not then have the book carry out the senior class colors? A line idea if the seniors -choose colors, but this year the class of dignitaries neglected that matter entirely. So we chose our own colors for the book! And it had to be green! First of all, because green is lovely in itself and deserves to be recognized as such: second, because it is an ideal color, the symbol of spring, youth. and all young things growing under the sun: third, because it is a general favorite on this earth as it is the back-ground for all of nature: fourth, because to our knowledge Stockton High has never before had a green annual. and therefore it is one of those beloved "new" and "different" things: and fifth. but most important as far as being practical is concerned, because green works out excep- tionally well as a color scheme in paper stock and printers' ink! Long endure our green annual with its dash of coral, blue, and gold!

'- - -51161 J ,, ART CLASSES AT WORK V , I AM SENIGR i 1 I X L ! -1 I .4 T1 SENIOR PLAY CAST , Qi l y The Whole Tofwnls Talking "One of the greatest dramatic suc- cesses achieved at Stockton High School" is the general opinion passed on "The Wlaole Town's Talking," the play chosen to add more leaves to the laurels of the class of '25. There are several causes to which triumph of this modern comedy may be due. First of all, the play itself was essentially fine for high school production. Filled with clean fun which depended upon ridiculous lines and situations rather than drinking scenes and swearing for its humor. the farce Was one in which not a single line had to be cut. The fact that the Stockton audience is one that enloys a comedy helped also to make l'The Whole Town's Talking" reach a Zenith of popularity. An excellent. efficient coach and an experienced, tal- ented cast were no small factors in the success of the performance. Don Carr was easily the star of the play With the character "Chester Bin- ney," the principal of the play. Don had an opportunity to give a presen- tation Which was but little short of professional. Not for a moment did he lose his character, and the audience so appreciated his ability to portray the blundering antics and stuttering speeches of "Chet" that when he made his first appearance in the sec- ond act, he was greeted by an enthus- iastic burst of applause. Possessed of natural acting abilitv and an excel- lent. resonant voice, Don's portrayal gave the impression of ease and smoothness. Almost rivaling Don Carr was Ed- ward Peckler who furnished a mas- terful entertainment in the role of Mr. Simmons. A rare talent for emphasis and facial expression helped Edward to make the pompous character of "Mr. Simmons" one to be remem- bered long by the local audience. The girls, however, did not' have so great a chance for acting as did the boys, but Betty Coffin and Ruth Fer- H221 guson, who have more than once de- lighted high school audiences, added a last triumph to their dramatic careers. As "Mrs. Simmons," Betty Collin did a different type of acting than any she had tried before. Beautiful poise and enunciation marked her perform- ance as excellent. Ruth Ferguson was probably the most dramatic figure in the cast. Her gestures were practically professional. Her voice was clear and beautiful, and her stage presence very appealing. Irene Tharp as "Ethel Simmons" was the graceful and pretty llapper daughter to perfection. Possessing a natural style. Irene wore the lovely colors of her gorgeous costumes with more than common ease. Mildred Jackson as 'lSadie Bloom" did a clever bit of acting. Her swag- gering walks and slangy voice were Well assumed. As "Roger Shields," Gordon Knoles was at home on the stage. His portrayal was of the cultured man just arrived from Chicago and Paris. Melvin Belli, who took the part of "Donald Swift," had an oppor- tunity Which he made the most of for some good character work. To Ruth Weeks and Marie Hands should go the credit of being true to the characters they were chosen to portray. Marie's acquired lisp and Ruth's doll-like ways delighted the audience Whenever these society maids appeared. Cliffton Prisbie gave the part of the taxi driver a real zest. Marian Van Gilder made "Annie" a clever character indeed. and Marian Los Kamp added to the play with her interpretation of "Mrs, Jackson." Miss Ann Frances Williams can not receive enough praise for her work in directing this play, and the class of '25 must ever be indebted to her for her ' faithful, patient, intelligent coaching. SCENES FROM "THE 'WHOLE TOWN'S TALKING THE CHARM SCHOOL Exceptionally fine coaching and a talented cast made the fifth annual oral expression class play, "The Charm School," a real dramatic suc- cess, as the laughter and applause of a packed house proved. As "Elise Benedotttif' the heroine Helen Yohner was truly charming. Although this was Helen's first ex- perience before footlights, she carried her role in a smooth and easy manner. Norris Rebholtz, as "Austin Bevansf' the head of the girls' boarding school, was incomparable. As "Theodosia Curtis." the meek little school teacher fHelen Thorntonj, said, "He was perfectly beeootifulf' Much of the humor in the play was provided by Wade Stewart and Mervin Garibotto, who as the twins, "Tim" and "Jim Simpkinsf' caused many a sideache. Coquettish "Sally Boyd" was a part well taken care of by Josephine Wixon. Jack Scantle- bury made a perfect lovesick youth who did not consider, "Oh, George, you don't know how much you bore me," a refusal of marriage. Prank Wilbur, as the wealthy and benevolent uncle of "Elise Bene- dotti," played his difficult role with unusual ability. John Hawkes LITERARY As a means of giving each student an equal chance to develop his or her talent, the sophomore oral expression classes called themselves "literary so- cieties" and held programs weekly or fortnightly. Each student had the opportunity to be chairman at least once and -waslon the program many times. When they were doing work on orations, debates, dramas, or other subjects, the class presented programs in keeping with the subject U2-H played a student of law and a history professor with equal ease. Carolyn Diffenderfer was superb in her role as the school princi- pal. Marian Littlefield did very well in her part as Muriel, the school girl, as did Beatrice Satterlee CEthelj , Dorothy Reynolds fLillianj, Pauline Dunn CAlixj, and Virginia Hall fMadgej. Marian Dodge, Elizabeth Blackmun, Ardis Haskin, Virginia Humbert, Dorothy Ulrici, Helen Merz, Clara Moore, Jean Tully, and Thelma Losekann showed good act- ing although their lines were few. Much of the success of the play is due to Miss Ann E. Williams, the coach. Every play that Miss Wil- liams has coached has carried with it a real finish. Credit is also due the various student managers who were: Herbert Clough, business: Wade Stewart, sceneryg Elsom Paddock, Dwight Humphreys and Lovett Smith, assistants: Mervyn Littlefield, property: Elizabeth Blackmun, cos- tumesg Dwight Humphreys, stage: J. Henry Smith, usher. Dainty maids in "Charm School" uniforms, which were dark blue with stiff white collars and cuffs and wide colored belts, ushered. CLUBS they happened to be studying. If they studied Longfellow, the pro- gram would consist of several of his poems and a talk on Longfellow himself. The chairman was required to introduce everyone with a bit of poetry. Judging from the programs given, this plan was very practical and did much to stimulate the students' in- terest and to develop their powers of expression. CHARMS" OF "THE CHARM SCHOOL SPANISH PLAY With- the revival of the Spanish Club this year came one of the liveli- est entertainments given by any or- ganization in Stockton High School during 1924-25. This was "La Noche Espanol"' fthe Spanish Nightj in which a great many of the students of "El Casino Espanol" CThe Span- ish Clubj participated. A clever one-act play, "El Prin- cipe", started this eventful evening and was thoroughly enjoyed for its songs, dancing, and good acting. An English synopsis of the play was Hrst given by Gladys Stevens. The s:ene represented a picturesque street in Old Spain. Gayly costumed boys played and sang "cat:hy" Spanish tunes, The singing game led by Avrom Horwitz drew much applause. To lend a still more colorful atmosphere to the program two "Danzas Espanolasn were given by girls from Miss I-lill's advanced danc- ing class. "La Cachuchau was danced by Helen Wilcox, Gladys Stevens, Elise Mazzera, Margaret Dunning, Arline Whipple, and Lu- ci1e'Threlfa11. Marian ,Los Kamp H261 and Eugenia Quail took part in "La Jolaf' With difliculty William Trivel- piece finally gained the attention of the audience and explained in English the main play of the evening, which was a dezidedly humorous play, "Las Solteronasf' The plot dealt with the efforts of two old maids to ,find a husband. Ruth Ferguson and Dorothy Carrow in the roll of old maids handled the dramatic as well as linguistic part unusually well. William Mahaffey assumed, in a way to be commended, the part of a young married man who falls into the clutches of the two old maids. Mer- vin Garibotto and Gladys Stevens were exceptionally good as the par- ents who had tried for fifteen years to marry off their two daughters. Coaches for the plays were: Miss Anne Bach, Miss Gladys Lukes, and Mr. T, L. Donoho, 'Committees were: Rena Passovoy, costumes: Mario Pigozzi, stage management: Richard Thomas, publicity. Furni- ture was loaned by Littlefield Com- pany. COMMERCIAL DEPARTMENT PLAY There's nothing like a good old Irish brogue to elicit from an audi- ence constant peals of laughter. This fact was proved by the production of "Martha-by-the-Day." a three-act comedy presented by the students of the Commercial Department on Sat' urday evening, February 14, in the high school auditorium. For two hours straight La Vergne 'White as "Martha" captivated and held her audience as she portrayed the well- meaning Irish mother. Throughout her role as housekeeper for her two children, her husband, and her mother-in-law, La Vergne's acting verged on the professional. As the family troubles fell heavily on her shoulders, "Martha" demonstrated how a quick mind and ingenuity can smooth out the obstacles and pave the way for a better and happier future for her family. Olive White as "Francie" gave a very lovable characterization of a natural little girl who, as she de- clared, scratched her back because she was the only one that knew where it itched. A new light was thrown on the modern girl by Mable Volz's pre- sentation of Cora, the older sister. She proved that the modern girls may be good at heart although they do say nonsensical things A new discovery in character actresses was made in Bernyce Ingersoll when she successfully handled the difhcult part of the old mother-in-law. Rolyne Belluomini as Clara Lang easily carried a trying and difficult part. Hazel Laska proved herself quite capable of taking the highly emotional part of Mrs. Allen Sher- man. The part of Amy Pelham, the society girl, was quite well taken by Frances Crevelli. Lawrence Bravo, Homer Harvey. and LeRoy Bartlett did credit to the parts of Frank Ronald, Sam Slaw- son, and Allen Sherman respectively. The amusing role of the landlord, Steve Lundy, was portrayed with success by John Tassano. "Shaw," the butler, was well taken by Harold Bradley. .,,,,,:I.. i ,. ,nm ii - .. ,. , W ,. , W Y .sr ii ii i , , il l' i. lliwifl..-fl' -.. 5,1 ,WL ,.25ii'i1,. ,,.,, ..,.,,,..- -..

What a babble of voices resounded from end to end of the long halls! The first day of the new term-friends meet- ing after almost three months of Va- cation-questions to ask and answer --it was, indeed, an unholy racket. "Vacations are great," I thought to myself, "but getting back to school seems pretty good." Drifting aimlessly down the hall, I presently came upon my own par- ticular friends among the group of students that crowded the hall in lit- tle cliques. Shouts of "Joe, old man!" and "Greetings, old fellow!" met me as they fell upon me and shook me around with a good will. After the usual questions and an- swers, wherein I discovered how they had fared in their vacations, and they learned how I spent mine, we pressed ourselves against the wall and watched the students go by. con- stantly greeting old acquaintances, often noting new faces. There were seniors, serene in the consciousness of their superiority: there were juniors, a step down, but proudly conscious of the fact that they were "upper- classmenf' sophomores there were who giggled and who plainly showed their full enjoyment of life. Most conspicuous of all, however, were the "frosh," awed, self-conscious, and the objects of many jokes. They stood in corners and watched the scene with intense interest, or they ventured hesitantly down the hall, clinging closely together and watch- ing the older students with a mixture ofjsuspicion, admiration, and envy. I remarked that one could always tell a "frosh"-they were as green as 11331 grass in the springtime-and sweep- ing over the chattering crowd, my by far I had a cor- ming- breth- glance fell upon one who was the freshest looking freshman yet seen. He was standing in ner absolutely alone, not even ling with his unsophisticated ren. A tall, heavy, broad-shouldered fellow, he stooped slightly as though to disguise his height. Something wistful and rather pitiful in the lonely figure caught my attention. and with a word to my companions I left and threaded my way to him. "Looking for something?"I asked in what I hoped was a friendly tone. "No," It was short, decisive, but I tried again. A'Got your program straightened out?" This time I seemed to have hit the trouble squarely. His fair, round face reddened uncomfortably, and he shot a suspicious glance at me as he began hesitantly, "Well, you see- well, I-I+Oh. heck, I can't under- stand the darned thing!" He extended to me a crumpled white p r o g r a m which I took, smoothed out, and read. "It's perfectly simple," I said "Here are your subjects, your periods. and your rooms. What's the matter with ir?" "I don't know-that is, I guess it's all right, but why has it got all those things on it? What am I sup- posed to do with it?" "Didn't your adviser tell you?" I asked. "My adviser-" he hesitated, trou- bled, and then added with much re- serve. as if afraid of ridicule, "I'm afraid I don't know what you mean by that." Whereupon, I took my task in hand and in the course of the next twenty minutes sought to untangle the mysteries of the school system for him. Finally, I took him to all of his rooms and even drew a chart to guide him. In the course of our con- versation I learned that he was Hec- tor Ellington from Big Bear Valley, and that he had never been inside a city school in his life. When the first period bell rang, I restrained him from rushing forth in the supposition that it was the nre bell, and then I had to leave him to the tender mercies of the juniors and seniors. During the first week, the thing that I feared would happen did hap- pen. Hector Ellington of Big Bear Valley was discovered. Not, indeed, that it was anything to wonder at: it would have been odd if he had not been found out. Hector it was who presented a bouquet to a lady teacher and was stifliy reprimanded for pick- ing flowers on the school grounds: Hector it was who was forever losing himself in the school building, and who had not been on time in a single class since school began. No wonder the boys shortly changed the "Hec- tor" to "Hick," and that by this ao- pellation he became known to all the students of Ranston High School. At first he seemed rather resentful and hurt. but as he became more accus- tomed to the school life, he took the joking in good part and even laughed at his own mistakes. With un- bounded enthusiasm he tried out for everything the school sponsored. Uebating found him upon the Dlat- form, somewhat tongue-tied. it is true. hut wading valiantly through columns of dry statistics. He tried out for plays--he tried for every- thing, nor was he dismayed when success did not crown his efforts. He was tremendously in earnest, and we were not surprised when we learned that he was out for football practice. Indeed. we were all out for football. Football held Ranston in a tight grip. spirit was high, and always there was the talk of defeating our old rival, XVhitby High School-Whitby, who had held victorious sway over Ran- ston for so many years. Now, we felt, was our chance to hit Whitby, H341 With a number of experienced men as a nucleus for the team and plenty of good raw material to pick from. We felt that this year's football sea- son should "go through ,with a bang." Every night we practiced faithfully-practiced until we were bruised and weary, and only the strongest were left to go on. Of us all, "Hick" showed the least effect of the strain. To be sure, he had trained down from two hundred to one hun- dred and eighty pounds, but this loss left a solid compact mass of bones, flesh, and muscle. "Hick" was "good:" there was no doubt about it. His tackles were wonderfully effective, and, in spite of his size. he could run with incredible swiftness. According to the coach, he had the makings of a great football player, but "Hick" could not catch the sig- nals. We tried every method possible to make him understand, but it was in vain, Something troubled him. what it was he did not know, and we did not know, but when the varsity men were finally picked, "Hick" was not one of them. For the first time I saw him really dejected, and his dis- appointment was deep and bitter. 'AI guess it's no use," he remarked with a little, twisted grin that went to my heart. "I guess I am just a plain 'Hick'." I protested against this statement. "You're a substitute, you know," I reminded him. 'AYour chance is sure to come." He made no answer, but climbed heavily out of his football suit and hung it in the locker. Because I was extremely happy Cas it happened, I had made the "varsity"j I began to sing, gently at first, but soon shout- ing the song "Seven or Eleven" at the top of my voice. A curious gleam came into "Hick's" eyes. "What's the matter?" I demanded. "Oh, nothing," he answered, but muttered things under his breath that sounded strangely like signals. I started to speak, thought better of it, and did not. Ranston had crashed through seven teams by the first of December, each victory carrying her nearer to the meeting with Whitby. Excitement was running high, and the day of the "big game" was anxiously awaited. Songs, yells, and colors appeared everywhere. and the faculty was al- most .ready to give up the task of try- ing to teach Latin and mathematics to a football-crazy student body. Pit last the day of the "big game" dawned clear and bright, and by noon a steady stream of automobiles, gaily decorated with the Ranston col- ors, were on their way to Whitby. where the game was to be played. Two o'clock found a record-breaking crowd seated on the bleachers at Vfhitby. while the rooting sections of both schools filled the air with yells and songs. We, who were waiting for the signal to go, felt that all was not well. There was a tension, a nervousness among us that boded ill. Even among the substitutes "Flick" was the only one who seemed entirely at his ease, and he was calmly playing with a little kitten. At last came the signal. Out we went on the field, something lacking that even our wildly-cheering rooters could not DUE intous. Whitby re- ceived the kick-off, and the game be- gan. From the first, Whitby seemed to have the advantage. We could not get the ball, and we could not keep it when we did get it. The Whitby men were all over the field, while our men could not seem to work together. Far off. as if in a dream, I heard the din of the rooters and the plea to "Fight, fight, fight Pit the end of the first quarter the score was six to nothing in Whitby's favor. By the end of the half our captain had broken through the line for a touchdown, and the score was tied. We went into the second half with new zeal and determination to win. Then something happened. White and unconscious, our captain was carried off the Held, and the effect tu I1351 on us was a feeling of complete loss. "I-lick" came ambling onto the Held to take his position, and I, for one, was fervently praying that he would catch the signals. My prayer was answered far beyond the wildest hope. "Hick" not only caught the signals, but he lunged, tackled, and blocked in a way to make football history. Then straight into the hands of our little Bob Burton came the ball, and Bob was off like a flash of lightning for Ranston's goal. Off behind him sped Powers, the Whitby man reported to be the fastest runner in northern California, and streaking diagonally across the field, came "I-lick." We. who were left, could only watch in an agony of fear. Could Bob outrun Powers. or could "I-lick" reach Powers in time? Out of the noise and din of the crowd came Ranston's "Run, run, runlf" to add speed to Bob's feet, and "Get that man!" a plea - for "I-lick." Closer to the goal-Powers gaining! "I-Iick" gaining on Powers. Bob yvinded. slowing a trifle! "Get that manl Get that man!" The heart-plea of his school reached "Hick," and with one supreme effort he flung his full weight against the onrushing Powers. For a moment- suspense! Powers struggled to regain his balance-he fell-but Bob was over the line. "Ranston, Ranstonln echoed from end to end "I-lick" and honor. "Why on earth didn't you tell me you understood signals?" demanded the coach later. "I didn't know until Joe sang 'Seven or eleven' one day." "What did that have to do with it?" the coach wanted to know, amazed. "I don't know." said "I-lick" simply. 'iThe numbers just natu- rally came to me then," -Janice Dixon. of the great field. as Bob were carried off in 4 HIS SEVENTH LIFE KSecond Prize Storyl A large grey and white cat sat sun- ning himself on the top of a pile of packing boxes. He was a striking feline, to say the least. In his better days his sinewy body. covered with grey fur, might have been termed handsome, but the fur now had a rather moth-eaten appearance, due to many escapades. So much for his body. Now for his face. Here he had a failing corn- mon to most of us: his most devoted friend could not call him handsome. Spots of white may be very pretty on a grey cat's feet Cindeed, he was quite proud of his white bootsl, but when they took the form of two white rings resembling spectacles, the effect was extremely grotesque. His chin was ornamented with a white spot, a goatee, while a spot on the side of his upper lip changed his naturally friendly countenance into a perpetual sneer. His right ear had a choice variety of nicks, the evidences of many victorious battles. Such was the appearance of Malty. the head mouse-catcher of the in- oifensive little Delicia restaurant. He was called Malty by his companions in deference to his remote Maltese an- cestry. He was a fearless animal: all his companions knew better than to enrage him. But it must be owned that he was afraid of one being. Towser, the green-grocer's dog. Prom his perch on the boxes. he watched a kitten chase a bit of paper. The antics reminded him of his far- off kittenhood when he was inclined to do such foolish things: to play was now far below his dignity. He was in his seventh life now: and when one is in his seventh life, one is not inclined to do rash things to endanger his few remaining lives, as he might have done in his second or third state of being. Malty rose, stretched him- self luxuriously, jumped gracefully from the boxes, and proceeded to H361 stalk across the expanse of dirty back alley ways. He would go over his round of garbage cans to see if there was anything new since his last in- spection. The first two receptacles belonged to a second-hand dealer and a green grocer respectively and seldom proved to be interesting. The third belonged to a boarding house and usually was worth the trouble of looking over. Malty knew there were always a few bones to be had here: so he set about searching for them. But on this unlucky morning. no bones were in the can, an extremely foreboding circumstance. A stranger must be in the neighborhood! Yes, only a stranger would have taken them, for Malty had impressed upon all his neighbors the fact that this can was his own private property. None of them would have dared to tamper with his property. Well, he must find the intruder and "persuade" him to leave that particular ash-can alone. He leaped to the top of a low fence and glanced angrily about him for a sign of the stranger. His roving eye lit on one of the windows of the boarding house. There on the sill sat the stranger. But this was not the kind of stranger he expected, no indeed! He would not try to per- suade this beautiful bit of orange- colored fur that the ash can was not to be touched. Oh, that would be an insult! Her yellow eyes caught his glance. "I am sorry," she purred, "that I have intruded. If I had knownln ' "Don't mention it." interrupted Malty. "I place the ash-can at your disposal." At this he arched his back, raised his tail, and gracefully retreated. ' When he reached his own domicile behind the stove in the kitchen of the restaurant, he fell to musing. Per- haps .it was only the springin the air that made him feel so joyful. He was too old to be falling in love: his kitten-hood was too far past: even his young cat-hood was gone. Per- haps, though. she would admire his mature dignity more than kittenish beauty. Well, he would see: he would serenade her that night, for he had a line voice. The neighboring tenants all agreed that it was the loudest and fullest voice for many blocks around. The night came and Malty sallied forth. He gave her a large selection of pieces, and she in turn favored him with a solo. Such a voice as she had: Malty had never heard a more beauti- ful one. He thought his own was good. but she received more tributes of clocks, bottles, and old shoes than he. On his return home his step was more sprightly than it had been since his fourth life at least. This was a sure method of regaining his lost youth. His joyful thoughts were in- terrupted by the entrance of a large tortoise shell Tom from an alley way. It was Tige, the renowned rat catcher of the day. Tige sauntered up to Malty. "Hello, old boy: you're looking fine. Say. will you join us in a rat hunt tomorrow night?" he asked. Now Malty had not been on a rat hunt since he had entered his seventh life: they were too much of a risk. But the thought of being able to pre- sent Puss with the prize of the hunt made him accept. He was sure he would win as he had been a famous rat hunter in his day. The evening of the chase arrived. Malty had invited his lady love to wait outside the cellar, and he would bring her the prize, a half-dead rat, and give her the pleasure of playing with it before it was killed. He pre- pared a speech for the occasion: he would show the young bloods of the alleys that he was as gay as any of H371 them, despite his seven lives. Malty met the company and proceeded to the cellar. The sport was great. They chased the rat down and surrounded him. They tried to capture him, but he was not willing to be taken. He was a large rat and intended to stand his own for a while. Tige essayed him, but was defeated. Malty tried and tried again. and at last was victorious. He secured the prize with his teeth and started through the window, the hunters all following. Puss purred as he approached. Now was the mo- ment: he would make his speech, and-. But his thoughts went no further, for toward them came Tow- ser, barking at every bound. Malty forgot his speech, forgot the rat. forgot Puss, forgot everything excepting that the top of the fence meant safety. He made a wild dash for a nearby fence with Towser at his heels. He gained the top and stood there with arched back and upturned tail several times normal size. Tow- ser, knowing Malty was safe, turned to Puss. Suddenly Malty's senses came back. He should have defended Puss instead of running away like a cow- ard. But the athletic lady was ready to defend herself. She stood in the doorway with raised fur and spitting defiantly. Towser came too close and was rewarded by a scratched nose. Her attacker retreated howling. Puss next turned her attention to crestfallen Malty on top of the fence, and such a look of withering scorn and utter contempt poor Malty had never experienced. Then she turned. elevated her tail to the perpendicular. put her nose in the air, and walked away. The next day Malty dejectedly admitted that he must be entering his eighth life. -Audrey Lambourn. THE CLOSED DOOR fHor1orab!e Menriorzj 'AThe money is hidden somewhere in the basement, but you couldn't get me to go within a mile of that house," said Mr. Sullivan. the gro- cer, as he gave a sign of farewell to Mr. Williams, who drove on without much more information than he had already had before coming to Mr. Sullivan's home. Mr. Williams was a quiet sort of a fellow and very thorough. He was no dare devil seeking adventure, but more of an inquisitive old man who had heard of this haunted house and whose inquisitiveness was just enough to cause him to make in- quiries. The house, known throughout the section as the Jones house, was once owned by a miser by the name of Jones. lt was a known secret that Jones had been very wealthy before he had died and that he had buried his money somewhere in the large basement of his mansion. This house was built by Jones and was of very peculiar construction. lt was a square brick affair with but one win- dow placed in the only door through which you could gain entrance to the house. All the others had been walled up just before the last occu- pant left the premises. A few peo- ple. after the death of Jones, ventured into the house and were never heard of afterward, This is all the infor- mation that Mr. Williams could get. It seemed that people didn't know much about it, and some even refused to talk about it. That night after his visit to the village grocery store, Mr. Williams dreamed of ghosts and of the Jones' house. About twelve o'clock he awoke. Something was luring him to venture into the mysterious home. He dressed himself, and soon he was fully equipped with all necessary things for the adventure. Was it the gold he was after? With his six- shooter in his right hand and his lan- H381 tern in his left, he walked down the road toward the river and soon disap- peared among the trees. Several months passed, and noth- ing was heard of Mr. Williams, Where could he be? "He was over inquiring about that Jones' house some time back," said Mr. Sullivan to a small group of men who were discussing the absence of Mr. Williams. "Do you suppose that man was crazy enough to go into that old house alone?" said Mr. McGregor as he drew his corn-cob pipe from his mouth in astonishment. 'il don't know," said Sullivan, "but he talked as though he intended to look the place over." "Well, I'm going down there and blow that house into a thousand pieces some night," said Dunn as he walked away in a more or less dis- gusted manner. "Don't you think we ought to go down there and burn it before some other fool attempts to-." "No, I don't," interrupted Tom Richards. "I think we ought to go down to that old house and chase out whatever's in there. l've not been living for twenty-four years for nothing. You can't make me believe there's such a thing as a ghost, and just to prove it l'll go down there with any other man in this section and search every room in the house. "Maybe there isn't," replied Mc- Gregor as he felt of his beard slowly, "but just the same I want to see what's choking me when l'm being choken to death." True to his bargain, but pushed on by his pride and his spirit for ad- venture, Tom made his way down toward the river in the dead of the night with his father's valet whom he enticed to go by an inducement payable after the adventure. On reaching the yard of the house, which was as dark as a cave because of the L l trees and thick underbrush, Dickens made a sudden stop. "What's the matter?" asked Tom in a whisper. y "The bushes! Look! The bushes! I heard something in the bushes!" "Aw, that's nothing-just the wind." said Tom as he took Dickens' hand and led him toward the house. Meanwhile Dickens kept looking back over his shoulder. The stars had failed to make their appearance, and the moon could not be seen at all because of the dark. stormy clouds that overshadowed. A strong, chilly wind from the north whistled through the trees. A very appropriate night for the works of those that have departed, thought poor Dickens. As they climbed the old wooden stairs, Tom took a gun from his pocket and gave the lantern to Dick- ens whose teeth were chattering vio- lently. Tom opened the front door and peeked in, but nothing could he see but the cold, black darkness. "Bring me that lantern," com' manded Tom, as he stepped one foot inside the door. "But we-er-er-er not going in. are we?" said Dickens in a tone that sounded like that of a scared child. "Wluy, certainly. Remember it means money." After a moment of hesitation Dickens came forward, and they both walked into what seemed to be a hall. "I-le's got hold of my foot: he's got hold of it! Leave go! Leave go!" shrieked Dickens at the top of his voice. "What's got hold of your foot?" 'ill' has. That! Look! See!" "Take your foot out from under- neath that floor board and keep quiet, or else you'll wake up every ghost for miles around," said Tom authorita- tively. On they walked over the dilapi- dated floor, which creaked at every step. At last they came to a door. H391 This they opened and saw a stairway of spiral construction. "Bang!" "Wl1at's that?" "The front door has slammed shut. l'd better go open it: so there will be no delay in. getting out in case of an emergency," said Dickens. "All right. Prop it open with a board," said Tom, as Dickens walked over to the door. "What's the mate ter, Dick?" "This door Won't open," re- sponded Dickens. "That's funny," said Tom as he tried the door himself. "lt opens from the outside, but not from the inside. Break the glass and prop the door open while I go take a peep around up above." Before Tom had reached the top of the stairs, he stumbled over some- thing. What could it be? He looked down. "Bang!" "What's that?" "The door to the stairs has closed, but stay there: I'm coming down. It's too spooky up here." "What's the matter?" "This door won't open. Try it from your side."- Diclfens walked over to the door. turned the knob. and opened the door very easily. "Let's find the money and get out of here," said Dickens. 'Come on and we'll try and find the basement." On they crept slowly into a big dining room and on into what looked to be the kitchen. Tom directed Dickens to prop open all doors that they they passed through. "There's a door over there. Surely that's the one to the basement.-Sure as I'm alive it is," said Dickens as he opened the door and gazed down- ward. A noise was heard in front of the house. "Sh-sh-," said Tom. "It's just the wind. You stay right here while l go down below, and whatever you do, don't let that door close." The wind howled on the outside, and the noise grew louder. A reflec- tion of a light was dimly seen by Dickens. 'ilVlr. Richards!" yelled Dickens in a whisper. "Come here. Come here!" I "l'll be right up. l've found the gold, but there's a whole pile of skeletons beside it." 'But hurry, sir. l saw a light in the other room." The skeleton he saw was yet half clothed and in a rotted pocket the musty coat glimmered a bright bit of something golden. It was a watch, and Tom gasped-The object bore the initial A'W"-Williams! "lt's just your imagination. Now help me with these bags." They both took a bag apiece and started into the dining room. There was another reflection of the light. "See! See! ltold you. My God, they've got us now. l didn't want to come here in the first place," cried Dickens in a whimper. "Sh-sh-. Be quiet." Brighter and brighter came the light. Voices and steps were faintly heard. The house was creaking in every point, and the rain here beat heavily against the roof. Finally, the light disappeared, and the voices .were heard no more. Slowly and surely they crept into the hall with their heavy burden and then out into the windy yard. As they reached the fence, they heard a loud explosion. They looked back through the trees and saw that it was blown into a thousand pieces. Thus ended the notorious house of Jones. "Pardon, sir. But why did you request me to prop those doors open last evening?" asked Dickens as he served Tom his grape fruit. "Well, if you hadn't, Hades would have had one more valet," said Tom with a slight chuckle. -Don Carr. BLOOD As Wilbert Adams was sitting silently next to the window in the street car during the long ride from his newly-established bachelor quar- ters to his third day's work in the "Evening Times" editorial rooms, many and various thoughts were coming and going behind his vacant stare. Unconsciously he reviewed the turning-points of his brief career from the day when he fell off the barn roof on the old ranch until that momentous occasion when. with a Stanford journalism degree under his arm, he had been accepted as cub re- porter by the great city paper. The first thoughts were of the broad, sun- baked acres of barren plains and mesquite-covered hills on the ranch. Then came memories of shady cam- pus scenes and of his football career at Stanford, followed by recollections of the dry feeling in his throat as he had approached the "Times" office and the peculiarly bashful sensation lf1401 experienced when being introduced to the "boss's" stenographer, one curly-haired, always smiling individ- ual by the name of Marjorie Bell. Just why he felt so queerly when confronted by this maiden he had been unable to comprehend: conse- quently he had invited her to the theatre the night before as a means of ascertaining what it was that made her so different from the other "steno's." Long before the evening had come to an end, he reached the conclusion, which has so often been reached by wiser men than he, that women are a puzzle. The only clif- ference between her and the others was that he liked her better, a condi- tion which, he reflected, was evidently quite prevalent among the young men of the city, if one were to judge from the number of men who had looked at him enviously during the previous evening. "Geary Street,"-the raucous voice of the conductor broke in upon his reverie and jarred him into action in time to reach the street just as the car commenced moving again. Strangely enough Wilbert Adams found him- self rushing up the stairs two at a time and looking forward expectantly to the moment when he should enter the office. But on the threshold he paused, for, collected around Miss Bell's desk were some five or six re- porters, all laughing and talking. He thought bitterly of the night before: yet when, in response to his forcedly cheery "Good morningI", there came a pleasant "Hello Willie," he in- wardly forgave her, thinking to him- self that though she might be flirta- tious, he was on just as firm ground as any of her other admirers. Looking about the room some- what airily, he stopped, and his sunny expression underwent a sudden and complete change, for of all the black looks he had ever seen, the one that he was receiving from the tall man on her right-the sporting edi- tor, a Mr. Lewis-was the most por- tentious. It said, as plainly as the sign on the rooming-house lawn, "Keep Off." Now Wilbert was no stripling and was not afraid of the man's physical strength, but a sport- ing editor has privileges and, quite reasonably, Wilbert refrained from visiting at Miss Bell's desk for the rest of the day. While this in itself did not worry him very much, the continued silence and reticent attitude of the girl puzzled him greatly. He could not imagine why, after her pleasant greeting of the morning, she should become so reserved. Wilbert stayed at the oflice late that afternoon until after everyone but the editors themselves had left the edi- torial rooms. Consquently he was much surprised when the oflice boy, hat in hand, came to his desk, handed him a note, and went out of the door with a rush. Under the supposition that a note delivered in such an un- precedented fashion contained some- H411 thing important, Wilbert hurriedly slit open the envelope and took out an evidently hastily-folded sheet of plain typing paper. But what was this? He gasped, "BloodI" Written in blood! Yes, there could be no doubt about it. Bending tensely over the writing he read: Dear Mr. Adams, Please come to my house, 816 Hazel Street, at 8:00 to-night. I am going to give an informal party. Marjorie Bell. Perplexedly he read the message over again and tried to think of some explanation for the unmistakable manner in which it had been written.. He knew Miss Bell could not have written it-that much was positive. But who, then did-write it? To add to his dismay, there came to his mind a story he had once read in which a lover lured a rival to his death in a trap by means of a letter, written in blood, bearing the forged signature of the girl. This was the only logical solution to the problem Wilbert could see. But who was the rival who had baited his trap with this note? Suddenly his brain cleared. He knew who it was nowg it was that sporting editor who had glared at him in the morning. "Why not go into his office right now and tell him that his plot is known?" After thinking of the results whether his surmise was correct or not, Wilbert answered himself with the thought that "Dis- cretion is the better part of valor," and that some craftier counter-attack was necessary. Following the reflec- tion that he was not, owing to his athletic training at Stanford, much inferior to his rival in strength, and that he was assuredly not a coward, he resolved to take the most daring path, to pretend to have been duped by the scheme and to go to the ad- dress mentioned with the purpose of catching the editor red-handed. If he went well-armed and ahead of time, there was an excellent chance of his catching the editor unprepared. Smiling to himself about his rival's coming surprise, he locked his desk, picked up his hat, and sauntered out innocently past the open door of the sporting department headquarters. 'Once home, his fears rapidly re- turned. What if the editor should use firearms? Anyone who would us: blood to write with would not hesitate to murder a rival. Perhaps he had better stay homel. But here his courage came back, and he cle- tegmined not to let any rival frighten him away: it was better to lose after a battle than to admit defeat without trying. Yet it would be best to be prepared for anything, and possibly firearms would be used, so he conclu- ded that a revolver would be necessary. But even the best-laid plans have weak points. Just as the clerk at the sporting goods store was wrapping the revolver, he heard a "Hello!" be- hind him, and in came the sporting editor. Although his "I-Iellol" was civil enough, Wilbert noticed his eyes lighting suspiciously on the weapon. "I-Iello, Mr. Lewis," responded Wilbert lamely, "see what I have prepared for burglars." "Thanks," laughed the editor fft was a forced laugh, thought Wilbertj, "I won't bother your house. That reminds me of a sawed- off shotgun. Are you going elephant hunting?" "Not unless an elephant bothers me." retorted Wilbert, eyeing specu- latively the huge frame of his rival. On the way home, he wondered if Mr. Lewis had fathomed his inten- tions, but he did not especially care. for, as has been hinted by Mr. Lewis' speech, the revolver was of no mean proportions. Precisely at ten minutes past seven that evening, a Hgure decked in old corduroys and a flannel shirt, and wearing concealed a monstrous revol- ver, might have been seen watchfully H421 issuing from the door of a certain rooming house. Wilbert was pre- pared for anything from a fist fight to a revolution. Walking rapidly and making his feet land with a firm tread calculated to still his growing fears. he neared the address given in the note at about half past seven. The house, while unprepossessing, had a plesant rather than a gloomy aspect: yet he could not drive that sinister word i'Bloodl" from his mind. What could have been the purpose of that bloody letter? He touched the butt of the revolver and felt relieved. With entirely imaginative courage, he mounted the steps, mopped his forehead with a trembling hand, and pushed a forefinger first faintly and then desperately against the doorbell button. The lock clicked, he braced himself and tightened his grip on the revolver, the door slowly opened, and he found himself face to face with the brown curls of Marjorie Bell. "Well, well, come in," welcomed her voice. "My, but you're early!" Having recovered from his first im- pulse to faint, Wilbert sheepishly fol- lowed her in. Marjorie had evi- dently noticed nothing wrong, and she continued: "I guess you thought it funny that I wrote you a note instead of telling you. Well, you see, that Mr. Lewis is so jealous of you that I was afraid he might cause you some trouble on the paper." Wilbert, still dazed, could only listen. "I'm glad you found out that it's going to be an old clothes party. I forgot to mention it in the note be- cause I was in such a hurry. I had to hurry so much that I didn't even have time to go back and get a pencil. I just had time to get to the car after giving the office-boy the note which I dashed off with my lipstick." -Douglas R. Fuller.

Dancing mist its veil is flinging O'er the dusty, tired rose, To its drooped petals clinging Till the red life color flows. Daffodils, their cups fast dewing. Gather till the night comes 'round, Vvfaiting for the fairies' wooing Hoarded nectar to be found. Peeping violets are nodding. Giving t h a n k s for bounteous drink- Verdant ivy, faithful, plodding O'er the little fountain's brink. Ferns and airy tripping flowers Seem to spring up all around, Some have grown in fairy bowers, Others carpet all the ground. Trees and shady nooks invite me And some queerly carved stones. Glossy webs 'pear magically- Spiders spinning telephones! Oh, that I a fairy flying On the mist drops that you fling, Through the air could too be plying Drawn by magic, silver string! Then with you l'd e'er be staying Living joys in carefree life With your music, laughing, playing, Far from rasping fear and strife.

My Clock K First Prize Essay j This morning as the melodious tinkling of my alarm clock thrust it- self through my peaceful slumber, a thought grew in my mind of the awful importance of such a small piece of mechanismfa mechanism made by man to rule man. All through the hour which is de- voted to the art of preparing for my daily duties, I cast hurried, anxious glances of fear at the fat little time- piece, so complacently ticking its way onward. And each self-satisfied chuckle is a new spur for hurry. As the time of departure draws nearer, the race between my clock and me fsuch an unequal race, for the clock is so much strongerj grows almost personal. For mine is the kind of clock which leers triumphantly when it is winning, and when it is not, settles it by saying to itself, "I'll get you yet? you know I will!" And when I would pause a few minutes in my day's task, there immediately comes to my mind the picture of my relentless clock, always with a know- ing smile on its round face. But after all, it is a nice little clock and I could not get along without' it. For how should I know when I was late if it did not tell me? And how should I know when to hurry if it did not tell me when? And how should I know the time if it were not for my little clock. And meanwhile, it ticks on and on-brief seconds into fleeting min- utes: fleeting minutes into golden hours, days, months, and years. All are Time, as delicately represented by my ever-youthful clock. -Miriam Lacy. FROM OX-CART TO AUTOMOBILE fSecond Prize Essayj 1850 "Crack!" The long bull-whip flew out over the bodies of the ten straining oxen to flick about the heads of the leaders. The muscles of the mighty beasts rippled and swelled with the effort of overcoming the inertia of the heavily-laden prairie schooners to which they were yoked. Again the whip flicked out. The oxen strained anew, and the high wheels of the wagon creaked in pro- test as they started in their down- ward revolution. Ten thousand pounds of freight started on their long journey across the plains to California and the mines. 1890 "Gid-dap, Belle." Father was handling the reins, flanked on either side by the twins, who, dressed in their new Fauntleroy suits, were un- mal 'comfortable models of their mother's ideal. The horse gave a shake of the head and with apparent ease started off. The long frail spokes of the wheels seemed to blur into transpar- ent circles as Belle began to step a bit faster in response to Pather's light tapping of the whip. Soon there were excited wavings from the twins and a restrained nod from Mother and the girls in the back seat as the gayly painted vehicle passed down the elm-shaded street. 1905 "I7lonk-honk." A1inen-duster- covered, begoggled driver grasped the wheel with one hand while with the other he pressed the rubber bulb of the horn attached to the steering col- umn. Beside him sat a mechanician dutifully manipulating the hand oil pump which fed oil into the two- cylindered motor. The whole ma- chine quivered from the vibration of the laboring engine. A look at the large glass-covered speedometer showed they were making the terrific speed of thirty-live miles an hour. 1925 "Thank you." A silk-clad. satin- shod foot touches a metal projection in the floor of the machine. The motor responds with a purr, and the long low car leaps away from the service station with the power of sixty horses throbbing under the hood. The car is a product and a masterpiece of both skilled engineer and artistic desiners. As it stands, it represents the contributions of the world: silk worms in Japan and sheep from Scotland have contributed to its furnishing. Woods from the Philippines and from the forests of the Northland have been brought. And now my lady drives her car. EPILOGUE Change, the ever constant, at once the enemy and friend of man, whom she vexes with her vagaries and lures on to greater heights with her prom- ises! The transition from the slow moving ox-cart of the pioneers to the swift custom-built roadster of today is but a single phase of the improve- ments she has fostered while promot- ing the evolution of mankind. Working among us now she is gradu- ally leading us to greater and better things. In years to come, our chil- dren will probably use airplanes as we now use the automobile, as our fathers used the rig and surrey. and as our grandfathers used the ox-cart. Living conditions will be improved, life made happier, and all thanks are due to that beneficent goddess of the future whom men call Change. -Harry Devereux. A CALIFORNIA MISSION fHonorabIe Mention Essay! Thou art a relic of the past, a sweet dreamer of yesterday, when Indians roamed California's sunny slopes. when people in gay colors spoke in a soft Spanish tongue, and all the country was rugged and Wild. Before the World cared for your land, gentle spoken priests came and with the help of friends made your adobe bricks with loving hands. Bright, gaudy Spain sent you your tolling bells, your tiles, and your religious articles. The Hrst sounds of the axe were heard when your rafters and rough tables were hewn. Into your shelter curious redmen came to listen in wonderment as your priest spoke of strange things. They learned of the Father of the forests, of the brooks. of the flowers, and of all nature. They learned of the white man's ways, and of the great world, but unhappily, Oh Mission. you laid their beautiful tales of the rainbow. of the Hre, and of the great sun in ruin. They were dear to the Indian heart. They were simple and beautiful. I1491 When the Spaniard came and built his large ranchos, you housed words of wisdom and advice, and you saw many a sweet romantic scene when shy, pretty senoritas were wed to strong rosy-cheeked senors within your chanel. ln your quiet hours you watched the slow, lazy oxen go by drawing their clumsy carts loaded with grain or vegetables. Great herds of cattle and horses often came Within your view as the yearly "roundups" were held. Do you regret that those days have gone by, and only automobiles go whizzing past you? Do you regret that now only spectators walk the floors where once the padres and the redskin stepped? Those days have gone forever, great mission. but in your seasoned walls they have left their mark. Today will pass, too. and maybe with it will go all the present ways and forms of civiliza- tion and a new people come to take its place. -Margaret Bishop. Why I Want to Go to College There are three big things that I am to strive for, three things which influence my desire for a college edu- cation. First, to realize my own ideals and ambitions: second, to sat- isfy my mother and father: third. to benefit my own family. As yet I haven't definitely decided what I want to be, but no matter what course I choose for my life work, I shall put every bit of "fight" that is in me into making a success of that work-. I want to succeed for my own satisfaction, to be an asset, not a liability, to the community in which I reside: in short, to make a name for myself. For instance: I have noticed men, honest and true, who work hard and diligently trying to gain the coveted goal of all men-success. Those men. by some mishap, have not received the proper education: perhaps they did not think it neces- sary: perhaps, by some misfortune they could not receive the education that they needed. Because of this mishap they are forced to stay in the background while educated men have forged ahead into the world. Most of the men of this latter type have received degrees at some college, and they are now realizing material suc- cess. Moreover, they are of value to their community and to humanity. Hard Work was not the only thing that brought them success: education was one of the main cogs in their working machinery, for education. like concrete. makes a wonderful foundation upon which to build. That is why successful men come to our school and tell us not to plan just to "get by." but to study so that we may receive that crowning honor -success. I wish to be like those successful men in order that some day I may be a help and not a detriment to my own community. Further- more, I wish to earn a name for my- self. My other ambitions and ideals F1501 I will not name because they are rather sacred to me and if something happens so that they could not be realized I would want to be the only one who would know of my failure. Don't misunderstand me: I don't want anyone to think that I am writ- ing in this manner because I think that it might "get by" better than any other one. I really do believe everything I have said to be true. I have spoken of nothing but study and success. Perhaps my reader thinks me a mere dull "grind" who buries his nose in a book twelve hours a day. As a matter of fact, I like to play just as much, and probably more, than most boys do, and I always have my fun. In high school one can play a great deal and still manage to receive a passing grade. but in college one can't play too much if he is studying for his life occupa- tion. When I reach college I am go- ing to study, but I hope still to find some time for play, because all work and no play will soon make me a dull boy. I don't want to be dull because I have a long future in front of me.. From a physical standpoint I think that I shall live to a ripe old age, and I am going to college to receive an educational foundation upon which to build my life. a foun- dation that will help me to be so suc- cessful that I may be able to support myself throughout my whole life. A wonderful mother and father is my second reason. The kind of a mother and father that no boy could ever forget. No boy has ever had a mother like mine. Mother has taken care of me, kept my confidence. helced me, and has done everything in her power to better me. My father has given me everything that any boy could ever want. The only thing that my mother and father ask in re- turn is that I study now, and that I will study in college in order to realize my own possibilities. If any boy wouldn't do that much for his father and mother he doesn't deserve a thing. I am going to do all in my power to grant that request and I hope that I may be able to fuliill it. My last reason lies in the future. I hope that some day I shall marry and have a family of my own: there- fore, I want to support my family as well as I am supportedg and do for them everything that my father and mother have done for me. May I some day in the future tell my son that college was the real source of my success, and that real education can be obtained better at college than any- where else. -Llewellyn B. Johnson.

Gazing serenely down on the mul- titudes of students who congregate in the study hall day after day, the por- trait of the "Father of our Country" seems with his austere and deter- mined face to instill in the students' hearts the determination to do their best towards making the country he founded a still better place to live in. This picture of George Washington is older than the building itself, hav- ing been left to the school by the Class of 1898. Down through the years other classes have followed this example, and thereby the school has come into possession of many artistic and useful gifts. The graduates of 1912 left the statue of Venus de Milo which is at the east end of the main hall. Two terracotta friezes in high re- lief decorate the entrances to the reg- istrar's and the evening school prin- ciDal's oflices. These are Grecian Maidens and Guido Beni's Aurora, respectively. On either side of the clock are two round plaques by Thorwaldson. one of Night and one of Morning. All four pieces of art were gifts of the Class of 1913. E The Class of '14 thought that "the savior of our country" should be re- membered by the students: so they presented the school with a statue of Saint Gauden's Abraham Lincoln, who is shown in the characteristic speaking attitude which he doubtless used many times on the platform. To the shame of 1925, some per- son has taken the sun-dial this year which the class of ten years ago placed on the front lawn. Both the face of the dial and the hour arm are missing, and it is hoped that they will be re- turned to their former positions on the stone pedestal which was made for them. "Mid-summer Night's Dream" was the senior play in the year 1916: so that class perpetuated its memory and the memory of their play by leaving the school a beautiful picture from a scene in Shakespeare's beauti- ful fairy play. Then came America's entrance into the World War. Patriotism was aroused within the hearts of S. H. S. students, and so the Class of '17 left a one-hundred-dollar First Liberty Loan bond with the thought that it might be presented as a scholarship to some deserving student when it ma- tured. A bust of Woodrow Wilson, the Hpreserver of our country," was given by the Class of 'l8. It is in the library, and constantly reminds us that he sacrificed his life to his coun- try's cause just as truly as the dough- boys who laid down their lives on the bloody battlefield abroad. This class also gave one hundred dollars to the Junior Red Cross. To those heroes of S. H. S. who paid the supreme sacrifice "on the world's broad field of battle." a bronze memorial tablet was dedicated by the Class of 'l9. It may be seen on the large oak tree on the California and Vine streets corners of the cam- pus. "Nineteen', also presented the school with its "service flag." Translations of the Greek and Latin classics are found in the library in a beautiful set of leather-bound books which was left to the school by the Class of 1920. A cumulative scholarship fund was started with a cash donation by the Class of '21, in the hope that other classes would add to the sum, but unfortunately no succeeding class has done so. The Class of '22 left a genuinely useful gift when it presented the school with a large trophy case which is in the main hall. It is unfortunate, though, that they did not get one high enough off the floor so that one would not be compelled to get on his hands and knees to read the inscrip- tions on the trophies. Here's a hint for generous classes to come. Besides our honor symbols have already out- grown the case. The beautiful burnt-orange velour curtain in the new auditorium is probably the most expensive gift ever made by any class in S. H. S. It cost S813 and was the gift of the Class of 1924. And finally the "best class of all" is to give a marble bench, to be used by seniors only, for the west glade. That class is the Class of 1925. POST GRADUATES Though fewer in number than in some previous years because of the fact that many students who did not wish to go away to university at- tended the College of the Pacific in- stead of the high school, the 1925 post graduates were lively and not unlike the other students in their in- terests and activities. Under the guidance of Miss Hawkins, as ad- viser, there were approximately thirty-five p. g.'s, most of whom came for just a part of the day. The head student of the class was Douglas Fuller, who managed to capture straight "ones" all year and was the sole post-graduate to main- tain membership in the Honor Schol- arship Society. - POST GRADUATES I1531 I E154-1 IN THE GLADE 1 O RMU RY , Y Y, ,i , ,,-g,4,,.,.,......-f y..,.f.17v,- 1-if Q k -Y - - if wwf' ' ' , " - Q-PM BLI .f I YV Puhlic Speaking Class "The most harmonious class that l have ever had," is the way Miss M. U. Howell characterizes her l925 public speaking class. The individ- ual members have worked to make everything succeed. Every project started has been completed with the utmost success. The members of this "stellar" class were Virgil Belew, Sadie Burstein, Don Carr, Janet Case, Elise Dean, Stephen Dietrich, Cliff- ton Erisbie, Edward Fong, Douglas Fuller, Vernon Gentry, Marie Hands, Clara Catherine Hudson, John Hum- phries. Aileen Kelly, Mitchell Oliver. Edward Peckler, Ovid Ritter, Muriel Robertson, Dan Triolo, and William Triyelpiece. The first time that these aspiring speakers appeared before the school was during National Education week, when several of the members gave short talks in the auditorium on education. During the second quar- ter the class took part in the eXtem- poraneous contest, every member pre- paring material and speeches. Clifli- ton Erisbie. who was chosen to repre- sent Stockton. after a long debating experience, was not then a class mem- ber, but later ioined the group. Two members. John Humphries and Ed- ward Peckler. gave a very amusing dance at the iinal contest in Modesto. The annual banquet was one of the most enioyable events of the year. Douglas Fuller was toastmaster, and, according to everyone present, he was a "real" toastmaster in all the best senses of the word. Mr. il. C. Cave wnc the guest of honor. Practically all the students brought one or both of their parents. Many ine after- dinner speeches were given by the memhprg. and several of the parents responded. The dinner was cooked A and served by the girls of Miss Post's cooking classes. The third quarter started out with the addition of six or seven students and with the loss of Dan Stone, who went to the College of the Pacinc, and of Manuel Silva, who left Stockton. Right at the start there was work to do. The community chest leaders asked the services of the speakers. which was readily given, in aid of the chest. Each student spoke two or three times in the grammar schools. Marie Hands delivered a short talk before the high school students during the campaign. Because of success in this work. the class was asked to take part in the "Deep Water to the Sea" campaign but was forced to refuse be- cause of pressing class work. The Oratorical Contest opened the third quarter, Many orations were written by members of the class, and these were saved to be used as occasion arose. Edward Fong's oration and style were declared the best combi- nation by the local judges. and he was selected to represent Stockton High School. Edward tied for first at the elimination contest here. but at the Hnals in Manteca, one week later, every judge gave him first place. The public sneaking class feels proud that Edward has been one of its mem- bers and has added one more bit of glory to Stockton High School. The class concluded its public ner- formances by taking part in the Bet- ter Homes campaign. Elise Dean. Clara Catherine Hudson. Douglas Euller. Ovid Ritter. and Cliffton Fris- hie delivered speeches at the Masonic Temple. Elise and Douglas each won a seven-and-one-half dollar prize for their speeches. WISH Accept this little valentine. This token of my heart. Wh1'ch, though less agile than my eye, Still follows where thou art. 1:1601 ORATORICAL For the fourth time in her history. Stockton High School was acclaimed champion in oratory, when Edward Fong's speech on "The Awakening of China" won first place in the Cen- tral California Public Speaking con- test which was held at Modesto on May l. The most noteworthy phase of this achievement is that Fong, a Chinese lad, was able to rise to the very heights of oratory in a language of which only nine years ago he knew nothing. Eong's oration dealt with the un- tiring and valiant efforts of Dr. Sun Yat Sen, China's first president, to arouse the sleeping giant, China, to a realization of its powers and impor- tance to the world. Ed compared the formerly brilliant Chinese empire with the sordid, uncivilized country of today. He ended his strong ora- torical appeal with an earnest plea for better understanding and co-opera- tion between the two great nations, China and America. It was Fong's deep sincerity, his earnestness, and his love for both his own and adopted country that made his speech so gripping. In following Ed's speech one could not help but feel that the Chinese lad was working for an ideal, and his enthusiasm and earnestness were contagious. Besides his great interest in his topic and his Wonderfully Well organized speech, Ed's most graceful, yet natural stage presence caused both the judges and the audience to award him first place unanimously. Second place in the contest went to Earl Alcorn of Modesto, whose speech on "Paderewski, the'Master Man" was a vivid and inspiring trib- ute to the great Polish artist. states- man, and orator. Miss Ara Dillow of Madera was awarded third place for the original and interesting ideas she so well presented in her speech on "The Leaders of l95O." A big feature of the contest was the awarding of the league debating cup which was won by Stockton for the iirst time this year. EXTEMPORANECUS CONTEST Cliffton Frisbie, Stockton's famed debater, certainly added to the honor of Stockton High School, even though he failed to place at the an- nual Extemporaneous Contest held at Modesto on January 16. Cliffton spoke on "The Effect of Conrad's Life on His Novels," a rather difficult subject. His speech was very well organized but was not presented with the fire that was evidenced by some of his opponents. Gerald Kennedy of Modesto won the gold pin for the second consecu- tive time. He spoke on "Conrad, The Man". Miss Betty Hirst of Placerville placed second, speaking on i'The Secret of Conrad's Appeal". She was the first girl to win a place in an extemporaneous contest in this section. Honorable mention was given to Bertram Edices of Fresno, who spoke on "The History of the Death Penalty". The other four schools and their speakers were: I161l Sacramento, Catherine Browng Ma- dera, Ellsworth Bruce: Manteca, Porothy Clarke: Ripon, Emily Bige- ow. The judges of the contest were Professors Emerson and Norton of Stanford University and Professor Perstein of the University of Cali- fornia. While the judges were mak- ing their decisions and before the speeches were made, the contending schools put on "stunts", John Humphreys and Edward Peckler of Stockton put on a much applauded Parisian Apache dance. Two Placer- ville girls cleverly impersonated two old men and gave a lively dialogue. Ml Dreamt I Dwelt ln Marble Halls" was sung beautifully by a Manteca girl. A cross-word puzzle skit was given by a group of Sacramentans, and Ivan Offelitch, alias "Hairy Chin," gave an entertaining if not understandable lecture. H621 Debating F ORE WORD Winning sixteen out of a possible eighteen judges' decisions in the three debates held this year, Stockton High School for the first time won the de- bating cup offered by the Public Speaking League. Besides this, Mr. Everett of Sacramento, head of the debate league, says. HS. H. S. has set a record which may not be broken for years." The many seasoned debaters who took up the work this year undoubt- edly explain this great success. Some members of the class began debating two years before as sophomores, and all laurel winners had had previous training either in debating or public speaking. Debating is an art that has to be built up. With a new coach and partly raw material, Stockton's prospects for winning the championship seemed small. But when the first debate was won, people began to take interest, and by the conclusion of the second debate, all realized that Mr. Harris's squad were well on the way towards the finally achieved goal. Those who took part in two league debates-this year were: Wil- liam Trivelpiece, Ernest Lonsdale, Ethel De Vol, and Melvin Belli. Those who debated in one contest were: Cliffton Erisbie, Willard Clark, and George Miller. The other members of the debating class were: Marie Hands, Alice Carr, Alwyn Briones, Harry Hoffman, Walter Wolfe, Mervin Garibotto, Gordon Tye, John Manuel, and Louis Sweet. While these last did not make this year's team, the majority of them will undoubtedly be the upholders of Stockton's reputation next year. TURLOCK DEBATE A double victory on November 14, by winning live outrof six judges' de- cisions started the debating year out right for Coach Harris's "talking Tarzansf' The affirmative team composed of Ernest Lonsdale and Ethel DeVol defeated Turlock three to nothing, and the negative team, William Trivelpiece and Cliffton Erisbie, beat Placerville two to one on the question-"Resolved, that the United States should recognize the present government of Russia with- out delay." This was Ernest Lonsdale's and Ethel DeVo1's first league debate, while Trivelpiece had debated once and Erisbie four times previously. SOPHOMORE DEBATE "Resolved, that capital punishment should be abolished in California" was the subject of the first sopho- more debate. held on December 12. Mervin Garibotto and Elizabeth Do- zier, aflirmatives, defeated Modesto three to nothing: while the negative team, composed of Robin Dunn and Addison Eording, lost by a two to one decision of the judges, although, if the speeches had been compared by the percentage system, Stockton would have really won, so close was the decision. SECOND DEBATE First place in the Central Califor- nia Debating League was gained by Stockton when her debaters won unanimous victories over Modesto and Patterson on February 20. The question debated was one of national I1631 importance at the time: "Resolved, that the land and aerial forces of the United States should be doubled." At home, Melvin Belli and Ernest Lonsdale of Stockton defeated Leo Bonney and George L'AmoreauX of Modesto by showing that our present forces were not enough for protection and, therefore, should be doubled. At Patterson, Sam Sherman and William Trivelpiece of Stockton, by their logic and presentation, were acclaimed victors over Miss Carson and Miss Evans of Patterson. At the completion of this debate Stockton ranked highest in the league with Escalon a close second. WHEN I AM OLD AND COLD Nay. Lord. not thus!

S, I The log of the good ship S. H. S., which set sail the second of Septem- ber, 1924, with a motley and hetero- geneous crew, captained by "Tubby" Dietrich, who reigned supreme over about eighteen hundred hands who signed for a year's voyage on the sea of School Life with all its trials and tribulations, the land of education their ultimate destination. SEPTEMBER 2-On this notable day ye oflicers held a conclave and the itinerary for the entire voyage was the result. Many were on hand to wish the bark. "bon voyage." 3-Allimale hands piped to the bridge to see Captain "Tubby" make his debut. Fears were voiced as to the safety of the bridge, but it withstood the shock and all was well. Ad- mirals Pease, Lewis and McKay told of ship's football prospects. Leather-lunged Nlahaffey blos- somed forth and led in prayer. 10-Ship's publication makes first appearance. For the first time the ship's printshop did all of the work using the new inter- type machine. Verily we say unto you the old S. S. S. H. S. is some tub. 26-Good ship S. H. S. out-smarts old crew on gridiron by 18-10 score. Dan Triolo set sail after - first kickoff and tack ninety-five yards to goal line for Hrst six points. Little Tarzans fight tough gale and lose the Galt varsity by 14-7. 27-Ship's finances discovered de- crepit, whereupon all hands put to bailing out indebtedness by ponying up 361.00 assessment. OCTOBER 1-The worthy, noble wise. up- right members of the crew, oth- erwise seniors, met on this day to choose a leader to guide their 1:1721 destinies on their final voyage. Ballot stuffing reached a climax. A new vote was called for, and Bob Goldsberry emerged from the fracas as class president with Dorothy Carrow vice-president. 2-Boy and girl members of crew hold separate football rallies. Much noise issued from boys' gym. A prize for best football song was offered. ' 3-Seniors burst forth in unique and undignified costume consist- ing of blue jeans and red and white watermelon sox. Teach- ers and canines voice disap- proval, but sox remain undis- mayed without means of sup- port. - 4-The high and mighties who are about to receive commissions hold first meeting. Skipper Goldsberry becomes proficient in dodging missiles. Editor Coffin secures financial backing of the class for this annual ship chron- icle. Forging ahead under full steam the mighty Tarzans thrust aside the Santa Clara Prep's Gridmen by a 19-0 score. The second team was subma- rined by Modesto by 13-0. A choppy sea caused by a sandy Held and heavier ballast by fif- teen pounds to the man was the cause of the mishap. 7-S. O. S. sent out as crew sees large grey overcoat strolling down the deck. lnvestigation, however, showed Ovid Ritter tucked away in one corner of papa Ritter's overcoat. Juniors have meeting and adopt purple cap as their sign of distinction despite efforts of the seniors to prevent the deed. War is de- clared. 8-Ensign Mahaffey deserts post and turns nursemaid. Makes big success. - -Tarzans and St. Mary's collide in 6-6 tie on the gridiron. Second no decision battle in as many years, evidently the pro- verbial "tie that binds." Jack- son miners sunk our "Babies" 53-6. The diminutive ones from a light but high speed cruiser. -Sophs hold meeting and select green and white as colors. We're with you, you freshmen. -Big skid held in boys' gym after school. Deck was cleared for action and a great time was en- joyed. -World fliers sighted.

Cap't Dietrich presided. and Harry Mazzera spoke to the crew. -Big colorful I-lallowe'en Edition of Guard and Tackle makes appearance. -Czars' Cathedral Quartette en- tertained crew. Voices and cos- tumes thrill even the "freshies." Tarzans submerge Oakdale 27-O in practice. NOVEMBER -Stray canine lifts voice in mu- sical appreciation of Abe Lin- colnfs statue on the upper deck. Crew and officers hasten quad- ruped's exit overboard. -Coach McKay and Frank Hall come to blows whereupon Erank refused to play drawback on Coach's team. 6-School wrapped in mourning when terrible calamity of yes- terday was announced. 7-Girls give their freshman sisters a reception in boys' gym. Boys are excluded. They are broken- hearted. 8-Good ship glides to a well- earned victory on Oak Park gridiron over Modesto. She proved a worthy opponent, and only hard work and more nauti- cal experience won for us by score of 14-O. 10-Armistice Day celebrated. Cap- tain Ritter of J. R. C. ofliciated. Mr. J. W. Pearce tells crew of Armistice and meaning. 14-The Terrible Talking Tarzans have bigger line of gob than op- ponents and win talkfest from Turlock and Placerville. DECEMBER 6-The battling Tarzans of S. H. S. entered the big Stockton- Lodi naval contest minus their mighty captain "Dolly" Pahl. They were in truth "a ship without a sail." Although squelched, by a 25-O score, they were backed to the end by the crew's undaunted spirit. l2-After a stormy night between Stockton and Sacramento, the squall was subdued by the Stockton debaters who con- tinued to ride the waves victori- ous. We suspect that Davy Jones welcomed the new guests to his locker way down in the deep blue sea! 16-California Night at last! Ship makes port while crew stages vaudeville show. Spanish danc- ers wax warm as do Carr and Johnson, ye vocal artists. Lonsdale and Cvoldsberry stage ye "Iky and Clancy" vaudeville stunt. Lonsdale calmly an- nounces he is not Valentino. -Good ship drops anchor for a "Night in Spain." "Nap" Gari- botto plays papa to Dot Carrow and Ruth Ferguson. Lem Ma- haffey struts his stuff as a lover. -The Christmas edition of the Guard and Tackle Weekly ap- pears on deck. Ship makes port for two weeks while crew takes shore leave by way of celebra- tion. JANUARY Big wind storm at Modesto. S. H. S. congratulates Gerald Kennedy on his victory in ora- torical contest. Erisbie subsides after valiant struggle. The brig's casaba tossers lose hard battle to Galt. Z3-22. Tarzans show unusual burst of strength and fling casaba every- where but near the basket. The mess hall of the S. H. S. rang with the speeches given by the members of the extempo- raneous classes during their ban- quet held on January 21. Ship's lawyers show skill in trial when Sam Sherman is tried for insanity and indicted for same. They tell us it was a mock trial. We deck hands wonder! All's over but the shouting! Again the Tarzans triumph, this time over Woodlands bucketeers. Before the speedy Tarzans the "Wolves" proved to be only sheep. The score was 16-12. thanks to Ike Mc- Coy, the fighting Irishman who saved the day by his indom- itable fighting spirit. Hands change on board. and crew welcomes Earnest Lons- dale, former secretary, to the rank of Editor. He has our sympathies! -Flames await too long. and Tarzans take advantage of the fact to the tune of 10-O. Large class of mid-year gradu- ates unloaded at Port Success as they stage grand finale. H741 -The crew of the good ship S. H. S. were royally entertained by the U. C. Glee Club. All hands turned out to see Lowell Garrison, formerly one of the deck hands. perform.

YELL LEADERS H791 Yellll Leaders Whenever a Stockton team played during 1924-25, there was a yell leader there to cheer it on, and not only did "Lena" Mahaifey, head yell leader, instill "pep" and spirit into the rooting section at home, but he arranged that one of his assist- ants should follow the team and be on hand, no matter Where they played. The assistants were Allison Pope, Huntley Haight, Ed Peckler, Emmitt Johnson, and Don Carr. Several new yells were introduced and perfected in time to be used for the Porterville game. The California yell, "Oski wow wow," was a great favorite, but the one that got Porter- ville's 'Agoat" was "Give 'em the ax." Although the student body was always willing to co- operate and was full of fight, it was the yell leaders that used that spirit to make possible the victories Won for S. H. S. in l925.

The Tarzan grid- ders engaged in nine games, one more than in the year previous, and were victorious in eight. The Mcliayans scored a total of llO points to their opponents' 32, a record for any foot- ball team. The warriors did not win the championship, but they set a mark which all future Blue and White teams should aim at-to be called "The cleanest bunch we ever played," as one of the opposing schools termed our aggregation. THE GAMES TARZANS. 18: ALUMNI. 10. Coach Bud McKay opened up the l925 football season on September 27 with a showing of fireworks which paled the light from the stars of Hdays gone by" into insignificance. The Alumni team pulled a surprise in its strength, and, but for the steady work of the varsity, would have been the victors, but in the end their rheumatism, etc., etc., caught the "grads" The spectacular feature of the game was "Dink" Triolo's 95- yard run to a touchdown from the kick-off. TARZANS, 19: SANTA CLARA, O. Both the Tarzans and the Or- chardists had been in practice only a few weeks, and consequently this practice game lacked the zip of league battles and resembled more or less one of those boxing bouts in which both contenders agree to dance and hug each other rather than fight. Nevertheless the Tarzans came out with a lead of nineteen points due mainly to the work of the line. TARZANS, 6: ST. MARY'S, 6. This was the second tie game in two consecutive years: so the feud will be renewed next fall. Both teams played hard, pugnacious foot- ball, and men were stretched out at random. Triolo, George, and Peters were the shining lights for the locals, while Joe Toon played the best game for St. Mary's. The ball was on St. Mary's eight-yard line with the Tarzans attempting the touchdown H821 which would have decided the con- tests in their favor when the gun sounded. TARZANS. 45: WOODLAND, 0, The first league game played by the Tarzans was featured by splendid Tarzan teamwork. There were no individual stars to congratulate after the game ended. The most impres- sive feature of the game perhaps was the strength of the Tarzan line, both on the offense and defense. The team's caliber of playing seemed to satisfy the hopes of the coaches for a fine season. TARZANS, 6: SACRAMENTO, O. The pigskin squealed, and the gridiron burned while Coach Mc- Kay's jungle men bounced the "egg" across Sacramentds goal line to the score of 6 to 0. It was a scrap from start to finish with every Tarzan giv- ing his utmost. The only time Sac- ramento threatened was in the last quarter when they drove the ball under Stockton's goalposts, but the Tarzan line held the Purple for downs. While Dyer put over the touchdown for Stockton, Barsi saved the day by his fast thinking. George caught a bad pass from center behind his own goal line, but quickly passed it to Dan Triolo who ran down the field with the ball as the whistle blew. TARZANS, 14: MODESTO, 0. Water polo in football suits- something new! In fact, the Tarzan triumph over Coach Schuster's den of fighting Wildcats was a triumph in seamanship. The two mariners who showed the most nautical knowledge for Stockton were "Dimples" Lerch and "Iron Man" Barsi. The former, Stockton's handsome tackle, blocked a punt and chalked up six points for the Tarzansg while the latter's kick- ing was little short of phenomenal despite the condition of the .field. Modesto failed completely to show their much boasted trickiness. TARZANS, 24: GRASS VALLEY, O. "The game in which the second team showed up the varsity," is the way the second string men like to speak of the game at Grass Valley when Grass Valley was greatly out- weighed by the local tribe to which they may ascribe their defeat. Both Tarzan teams were off form but were able to easily outplunge their game opponents. TARZANS, 21: TURLOCK, 7. The Turlock "Panthers," the team which was reputed to be one of the strongest in the league, were fully confident in the outcome of the Turlock-Tarzan game, and were sur- prised when they were upset by the score of 21 to 7. The Cantaloupers had two first-class men in Critzer and Jackson, but the Blue and White var- sity played a type of football on that day which no prep team could stop. Every man was a star, Stockton's line was impregnable, the backfield was superb. Dan Triolo, "Ham" George, Barsi, and Carr shone especially. Carr, playing his first year of foot- ball. "spread the onions on Turlock aplentyf' TARZANS, O: LODI, 25. After a string of victories and only seven points scored against them so far, the Tarzans and their supporters flowed upon the Lodi field conlident that they were about to win the sub- league title. The game was four periods of agony for the Blue and White section as they watched the Tokays and Dame Luck run up a total of twenty-five points against them. It was pitiful to see our boys make some brilliant play only to lose the ball and yardage on one of the so-called "breaks" with which fate fanned the "Flames" In the later part of the game the Tarzans started to "step out." but on the whole they lacked altogether the pep and zip which had been char- acteristic in former games. The football season was thus offi- cially terminated for Stockton's Class A team. Defeated, but far from being disgraced, the "varsity" had shown in fact a better season than for many years, and with prep- arations already begun for next sea- son's team, the future looked bright for l925-26 football. ,e..1- ,......1-1 -g ig' :I- 5 S , .- ?'l -.

A summary of the 1925 season bears a silent testimonial to his faithful, earn- est work, and the "Little Tarzans" went even one game farther than they did in the 1924 season. LITTLE TARZANS . . 53 JACKSON ..... 6 The Little Tarzans opened up their 1925 season with a barrage of fire that swept their rivals clear off their feet. The Jackson lVlountaineers were completely outclassed. and the s:ore ended 53 to 6. LITTLE TARZANS . . 20 IONE ....... 15 After trailing Ione's football team in the first ten minutes of play, the Little Blues came from behind and downed the "Cow Punchersu in their own pasture by the score of 20 to 15. LITTLE TARZANS , . l2 LODI ....... O Although the Stocktonians were victorious, they suffered a loss when "Doc" Rule sustained an injury which eliminated him for the rest of the season. Although the Tokays threatened, the steady team work and the phenomenal work of "Googs" Koster ended the game with a score of 12 to O. LITTLE TARZANS . . 32 SUTTER CREEK . . . O Led by 'AI-Iuskey" I-Iigby, the locals easily overcame the 'Sutter Creekers" and ran up a score of 32 points to their opponents' goose egg. LITTLE TARZANS . . 19 GALT ....... 12 The dope was nearly upset, and the Galt l'lVlilkmaids', almost toppled over the "Little Tarzansf' who were playing "way off form", but Captain "Gooster" again saved the day, and the score ended in the Blues' favor. D841 LITTLE TARZANS . . 13 SONORA ...... 7 The whole "population" of the little mountain town turned out to see their highly tooted team trim the Little Blue aggregation, but our boys came from behind and won, copping the sub-league championship. "Pop" bottles, etc., etz., were thrown during the conflict. LITTLE TARZANS . . 27 PLACERVILLE .... 7 The "Little Blues" won the Northern championship with flying colors by defeating the "Placervillers" 27 to 7. They played a varied type of attack which completely "out- foXed" the "I-licks." If there were stars in this game, they were Davis and Parks. LITTLE TARZANS . ., 7 COLUSA ...... 17 A state championship in football -for the winner of the Colusa- Stockton struggle could lay claim to the above title. Although the Little Tarzans were greatly outweighed, they led the Colusans in every de- partment of the game until the last eight minutes of play, then their op- ponents rallied, and using their greater weight to a large advantage, nosed out the l'Napoleonites" 17 to 7. Porlier was easily the outstand- ing player in this game, but every man gave his all. This game ended the Little Tar- zans' long and laborious football season. They were defeated in their state championship game only by the weight of their rivals, and they brought more football glory to Stockton High than any team before them, Too much praise cannot be given this team and especially the substitutes. "Little Napoleon" will be here next year and he has a prom- ising squad to work withg so watch out "all ye who would oppose him." ,, ,M M 4, .14-G-alilw 4' ' -1 xg, 3 I1 Ii L 'Q 5 1'-A -' 77.-ilfif-A: -' ' ' ' K' :MS-xEf1'v:, Lv: ' V1 ,id ' ' . ., ,,,,i,,. U , BASKETBALL VARSITY 51851 . Basketball The Coach The man who was known as the coach of the l922 state basketball champions, who. in l 9 2 3, w a s known as the coach of the two consecutive state championship bas- ketball teams, the man who now, in l925, is known as the first coach to pilot three state championship teams4Stockton High's Harry B. C"Pete"j Lenz! Immediately after football sea- coach began build- ing his famous Blue and White bas- ketball machine. The critics looked on and said, "He can't get very far with those ice wagons." Yet after three ,months of practice the Tarzan cagers were able to win the school's third state championship by easily defeating the scrappy tribe of men from Porterville to the score of 21 to l2, Not only did the varsity pile up that score, but in the last few minutes of play, those men who had done so much toward making the varsity, the second team, realized their ambition, to play in a state championship game. The Men The only men who had played before were Barsi, Berg, Bush, Cavi- glia, George, Sweet, and Calcaterra. Lenz picked Barsi, Berg, Caviglia, and Sweet to build upon, but was lacking a tall center. After much coaching, Mahaffey began to show flashes of formg so the varsity was composed of: Barsi, standing guard: Caviglia, running guard: Berg and Sweet, forwards: and Mahaffey, cen- ter. At the first of the season, the going was rough, and many of the second son, this wonder H861 team men took their places at times upon the "varsity," Many became discouraged after the loss to Galt, but after the Tarzans defeated the 'lPride of Tokaysf' the whole student body was behind them and fought for the team until the state championship had been won. There were five outstanding play- ers upon the 1925 squad. Captain "Iron Man" fGeorgej Barsi, rated as the best standing guard in California, a man who could grace any college team, was the backbone of the team. His leadership, both upon the defense and offense, was always to be relied upon. When he became sick and was unable to cap- tain his team through a state cham-, pionship game, the great leader in- stilled enough fight in his men to make them win without him. "Lem" CWilliamj Mahaffey, had a hard time to get started, but during his whole season no one consistently got the tip off from him in a single game. Bill developed an uncanny eye and was especially adept at tip- ping the casaba in from all angles under the basket. Georgie Caviglia, who took Pete Calcaterra's place at running guard. came to be known as the best dribbler in the state. Little Georgie could pass by anything short of a brick wall, and had he been a bit taller, would have outdone the deeds of the famous Uldric Hussey. The Red Flash. or streak of light- ening, was "Red" CHarryj Berg. Harry had everything that a good forward needs-speed, cleverness, and a wonderful eye. "Red's" team-mate, " M o c o " CLouisj Sweet, had a bit of hard luck in hitting the basket, but if Louie ever had an off night in shooting, he more than made up for it with his phenomenal passing and defense work. Much credit is due to the second varsity. These boys fought the var- sity every inch of the way. There were no 1925 weight teams: so all the basketball men came out and gave the varsity a tough fight for their positions. Clarence Bush could always be de- pended upon to go into the game at any time at any position. He did not jump center because Mahaffey had more height for that position. Ernie George was always held in reserve for a hard scrappy game. Ernie has stuck by the team for four years and has developed into an aggressive. clever player and a good shot. Pete Calcaterra played the first part of the season as standing guard and received his reward by playing with the rest of the second varsity against Porter- ville. "I Ke" McCoy was probably the man with the most fight on the whole squad. Two other standing guards of high type were Irving Pahl and "Tubby" fStephenj Dietrich, the 1925 student body president. Both, however, had the honor of playing against Porterville. The Games STOCKTON, 20: ALUMNI. 23. The varsity lost their first practice "scrimmage" to the "old timers." There was no outstanding player upon the varsity, while Zent and Souza ran up the tally for the Alumni. . STOCKTON, 22: C1Al.,T. 23. After making ten field goals to the Hmilkmaids' " seven, the varsity lost to the latter in an exciting game upon the Galt court. The Tarzans were away off form in their foul shooting. Gallachini starred for Galt, while Berg was high-point man for Stock- ton. - STOCKTON, 16: WOODLAND, 12. After trailing the Woodland Wolves for three quarters, the Lenz- men were able to defeat their rivals by the close score of 16 to 12. The Tarzans missed ninety out of ninety- six tries at the basket: in fact. the whole varsity was away off form. Edgar and Brunson led the NVolf pack. H871 STOCKTON, 10: LODI, 0. Another name for our varsity is "The Stallersf' according to the Lodi "Sentinel." The Tarzans made two points and held the ball for three quarters, while Lodi was afraid to go into Stockton territory. When the Flames changed their tactics, it was too late, for the Tarzans quickly ran up ten points against them. STOCKTON, 19: STANFORD EROSH, 23 Although defeated by the Stanford Erosh. the Tarzans received a com- pliment from Coach Andy Kerr which made the defeat sugar-coated. "Andy" said that the Blues were the best high school team that ever played a frosh team on the "farm," The game was hard fought and only won for Stanford by the last minute dally of Crisp. ' STOCKTON, 21: GALT, 17. Three minutes before the end of the game, the score stood 15 to 15 with both sides struggling to break the tie. Caviglia put Stockton into the lead with a field goal, and with twenty seconds to go, Mahaffey clinched the contest with another loop. Mahaffey was high-point man with eight points, while Callachini had made seven tallies for Galt. STOCKTON, 35: WOODLAND, 15. The Tarzans were able to invade the Wolf den and carry home the bacon Without a scratch the second time the two teams met. The team- Work and shooting of the Blue and White won the game. Shuman of Woodland made ten of Woodland's fifteen points. STOCKTON, 41: AMBLERS, 28. lt was only a practice game, but the Tarzans were very happy to de- feat the Amblers in the local gym before a large crowd. STOCKTON, 39: LODI, 12. By defeating Lodi the Tarzans be- came tied with Galt for the cham- Dionship of the local section. The Blues led at all stages of the game and time after time sank baskets from all parts of the court, a type of playing which discouraged the T o k a y s. "Lem" Mahaifey had his eye and sank fourteen points. 4 STOCKTON, 27: GALT, 25. For the third time the Tarzans and Milkmaids were seen in action. The score was close, but the Tarzans were easily seen to be the better team on the floor. Their points were scattered among the players, while Calanchini made eleven of Galt's twenty-live points. Three minutes before the final gun Galt was leading 23 to 22. Sweet was sent in: he con- verted a foul and made two field goals in the last two minutes of play. STOCKTON, 34: SACRAMENTO, 19. lt took just seven minutes for the Tarzans to make their Hrst basket. After that they led through the game. At half time Stockton led 16 to 11. Caviglia and Berg brought the score up to 31 when they shot the third quarter full of holes. Slawson and Small of Sacramento gave the Tar- Zans lots to think of for a while during the initial frame. STOCKTON, 29: MODESTO, 17. Taming the Modesto Panthers was not as hard as it was 'icracked up to be." The Modesto team was built about Lee, their lanky center, whom Nlahaffey easily outjumped. Lee con- tributed ten of lVlodesto's seventeen points. Berg, Caviglia. and Mahaf- fey each shot upon a par. The for- mer two contributed six points each, while the latter sank four baskets. STOCKTON, 14: AUBURN, ll. lt was with great pleasure that Stockton sank the good ship "Au- burn" with fourteen well placed shots. The Auburnites were famed for good shooting. Had they come through with some good shots, Stockton might have lost again to them, but, as it were, the Auburn men would work the ball near the basket only to miss again and again. while Bill Mahaffey was leading the Tarzans with seven points. STOCKTON. 34: CHICO. 10. At the end of the first half, Chico had held Stockton 10 to 7 points. H881 but as soon as the Tarzans came upon the floor again, they cut loose with a rally which carried the score to 34, while the wonderful guarding of Barsi held Chico to only two more points. This win entitled Coach Lenz's squad to the Northern cham- pionship title. STOCKTON, 26: NAPA, 15. After the smoke of the first quar- ter had cleared away, the Tarzans had the Napamen tied to 11 to 3. Barsi was the outstanding Stockton guard. while Berg had his best night of the season, sinking thirteen out of Stockton's twenty-six points. Dur- ing the last few minutes, the Tarzans were so far ahead that Coach Lenz sent in the entire second squad. STOCKTON, 21: PORTERVILLE. 12. After almost four months of hard training and coaching, the Tarzan varsity came upon the old "gym" floor to play for another state cham- pionship. It was the same bunch of fellows who, four months before. were regarded as "lucky to get by Lodi." Their captain was sick and not able to be with them in the last game. The boys from Porterville had come with the desire to win, con- fidence, and a fine reputation for roll- ing up points. In the game that followed, the Tarzans were impregnable on the defense and "unstoppable" on the offense. The 1924 and '25 state championship was won by nine points. The Blues led from the beginning and at all stages had at least a one- point margin to spare. The score at Hrst quarter was 8 to 2: at half, 10 to 73 at third, 13 to 10: and then the Porterville team went to pieces, and the Tarzans sank five fouls. Mahaffey and Caviglia were the bright lights for the Tarzans. The former sank eight points and the lat- ter five. Both Berg and Sweet were nervous and consequently off-form on the offense, but played a whale of a defensive game. Bush ably nlled the hole left by Barsi and knocked down shot after shot. Calcaterra, Pahl, Dietrich, McCoy, and George were sent in, in the fourth quarter, and While they did not score, they held the Portervillains to no baskets. The gun that ended that fourth quar- ter of confusion for both players and spectators formally announced the third state championship for the Tar- zans. ADVISER SECTION BASKET BALL After much enthusiasm had been spent and the adviser basketball league was Well under Way, two out- standing teams emerged victorious- the "McCoys" and the "Lewises." Both teams were composed of Hne players, but the better teamwork was displayed by the "lVlcCoys." ln the "world series" the "Mc- Coys" composed of Eldred, Chun, Barben, and Cowden led by Jack Chamberlain, were the victors. The 1925 Championship Pennant for ad- viser league basketball is now dis- played in Miss McCoy's adviser room. fwlf' ' E in Sw. pi.

I189j TRACK TEAM Truck Track in Stockton High School of recent years has been a much smaller activity than most of the other sports. although certain individuals, such as Eric Krenz, gained national honor in that branch of athletics. The 1925 track year, like that of the one before it, 'was not what one might call highly successful. There were certain individuals on the 1925 squad who were nearly always granted points, and in all glory to those who trained and worked, these men were a truly representative group, though small, of the clean type of the track man. It is, therefore, fitting and proper that in this 1925 annual there should be a plea for more support and inter- est in track. There are dozens of men around the school who could bring honor to S. H. S. and them- selves if they tried. So it' is reason- able to assume that, with the impetus given by an early start, and the sup- port of all those who even think they can jump or sprint or perform upon the cinder path, the stars of the 1926 track team will pale into insignifi- cance those stars of the past. The 1925 track team was nearly all com- posed of lower classmen. INTER - CLASS MEET The 1925 track season was opened on March 5, with the inter-class track meet. The "dignities" won this meet by a large margin, while the sopho- mores took second place. The cross-country run was the feature of the meet. Moyes and Hil- liard fought each other all the way to the tape, and the race was won only after Sceoris Moyes' wonderful sprint to the tape. However, the freshmen had the largest number entered and consequently won the race on points. Alumni, 29: Tarzans, 61. On March 18 the Tarzans amassed enough points to sink a ship and also the Alumni track squad 29 to 61. Although each team captured five first places, individual honors went to Carr and Westate of the Varsity and Krenz, our alumni hero. Oakdale, 64M: Tarzans, 59M. The Wednesday before the Alumni meet the Tarzans started their official season on the track by winning the two-day meet with Oakdale, the re- lay team of Oliver, Grey, Carr, and Johns, bringing in the final points which won the close meet. Oliver SECTIONAL- C The Tarzans, on May 2, entered the C. 1. F. sectional meet held at Turlock and placed fourth, thereby won first -in the 100, 220, and 440- yard races and was high point man. Modesto, 58: Tarzans, 56. The first part of the dual meet be- tween Stockton and Modesto was held on Monday, March 20, in Stockton. Both teams were very equally matched, and consequently the times were fast and the spectators were kept thrilled throughout the meet. At the end of the first day, Mo- desto was ahead 35 to 28. As the final score was 58 to 56, a diHerence of one place would have given Stock- ton lirst place. In the 220-yard dash Oliver of Stockton and Davis of Modesto won the distance in 23 sec- onds flat. Many spectators stated that Davis grabbed the tape with his hands, while Oliver breasted it. The race and the meet, therefore, many believe, should have been given to Stockton. Pahl won first in the discus and shot, while Alfred Bean also made 10 points by winning the mile and half-mile. 1 E- MEET qualifying three Stockton men to compete at the semi-finals at Sacra- mento. The dope was considerably upset at Stockton's expense in this meet. "Dolly" Pahl had been conceded a iirst place in the shot and discus but received only a second. Gray and Oliver were also nosed out in the 220- and 100-yard dashes respec- tively. Wallace Higby showed plenty of light in the 440 and 880 and no doubt will be a mainstay for next year. NORTHERN C I F MEET Sacramento, on May 8, was the scene of the Northern C. I. F. track meet. Stockton sent a team of three men: Ralph Grey, Mitchell Oliver, and Irving Pahl. "Dolly" Pahl won two second places in the weights, one in the shot put, and one in the discus, being beaten out of first place by a very narrow margin. The company proved too fast for Mitchell Oliver, and although he did not place, the fast stepping Ralph won third place in the 220-yard dash. Both these boys went to the C. I. P. state meet but failed to place. The 1925 track men were: Oli- ver, Buenner, Grey, Carr, Johns- sprints: Higby, Moyes, lngals. Beane -distance: Pahl and Fugini- weights: Suzuki and Westgate- jumping. The best of it is that Grey, Higby, John and Westgate will be here next year. TENNIS TEAM H921 Tennis The 1924 tennis season, successful as it was, cannot be compared with 1925 in its program of successes. The year 1925 opened with plenty of zip and sprint. the racketers hold- ing a meeting in the high school cafeteria in September. The follow- ing officers were elected: president, Dwight Humphreys: vice-president, Franklin Molloy: secretary and treas- urer, Albert Ingals. At first it was very difficult to pick a truly representative team: so differ- ent meets were held with scratch teams to pick out the best material. Stockton was beaten by the first two teams met-Lowell High School of San Francisco and Berkeley High School. Modesto Junior College and many other schools later competed with the Stockton servers. On May 9. the central section was played off in Stockton for the C. I. F. championship. Although the indi- vidual playing of the Tarzan team was better than that of the Dixon High team. Ted Clark and Dwight Humphreys fell before the last-named szhools in the doubles tournament. Harry McKee proved the player he is by walking away with the singles championship and thereby qualifying for a trip to 'Oroville to compete in the northern C. I. F. championship meet. At the time of this writing, the state championship is yet to be de- cided. lt has already been settled that this is to be played off in Stock- ton for the first time. There are also matches and return matches with Lodi and Modesto High Schools and with other teams. Although there are no individual stars like Harry McKee left for next year, there is a group of budding S. H. S. net men who we feel cannot help but bring glory to S. H. S. Among these are: Humphreys, Clay, lngals, Eagal, Molloy, Rollin Gra- ham, and Paul Graham. Too much credit cannot be given Mr. Tollit who helped make all the plans for the 1925 season materialize. Not only an artist at the game him- self but also an able instructor, he will undoubtedly make the 1926 season a huge success. The latest reports before the an- nual goes to press are that Harry McKee easily won at the Northern C. 1. F. championship at Oroville. The state championship was played off on May 23 at the Oak Park courts. Harry McKee turned down a chance to compete in the bay leagues in order to play for his school. After he had overcome most of the compe- tition in the meet, he lost to a Santa Monica boy. The set was fast al- though both boys were way off their game. Swimming As far as the northern section of the state was concerned, the 1925 swimming season was a failure. Stockton High School was the only northern high school except Vallejo, represented by one swimmer, to enter the state meet. The C. I. F. had until recently a set of rules which gave the school winning irst place in the prelimin- aries the right to participate in the finals. This schedule was like the basketball schedule, pitting the two strongest teams against each other at the end of the season. The 1925 rules put swimming upon the same status, in-so-far as the schedule was concerned, as track, whereby the indi- vidual winners went to the state meet regardless of the school from which they came. , Whether it was due to this fact or some other, no northern meet was held, and the only chance the Tar- zans had against high school swim- mers was in the state meet. Conse- quently the merrnen had no accurate idea of the times and speeds of the different schools. H941 It seems, at this writing, that the present schedule is better than the pre- vious one, because the best individuals should be allowed to compete with each other at the season's end. We hope that next year there will be teams from Lodi,'Stockton, and other northern cities, making preliminary contests necessary. Although Coach Pete Lenz could not even foretell the approximate out- come of the state meet, he took a team of Tarzans to uphold the honors of the school. The times at the state meet were exceedingly fast, and Stockton was awarded a tie for fourth place. The nine men who made the trip to Pasadena were: Waltman, Crippen, Mimble, Cave, Hancock, Mahaffey, Peters, Haight, and Johan- sen. OUTLAWS VS. TARZANS The lirst practice meet of the year was held on April 23 with the Out- law Club, the varsity winning by the score of 43 to 34. Haight, Peters, Crippen, and Johansen all won first places. SECTIONAL MEET The sectional meet was a farce, as only one opposing school entered a team of one man. STATE MEET The state swimming meet for the C. I. F. was held on May 23, 1925, at Pasadena. The tank was large, and although conditions were in fine form for the meet, the Tarzans had a little trouble in becoming accus- tomed to the change in water. Exceptionally fast times were made by the different schools at this meet. Peters was given second place in the 220: Crippen, first place in the plunge: and Hancock, fourth place. This constituted Stockton's eight points. As this was the first meet of its kind, all the times stand as records to break. The times were: 50-yard free style, 0:25M: l00-yard free style, 0:58.93 100-yard breast stroke, l:l7M2 100-yard back stroke, 1:03.73 220-yard free style. 2:36.73 440-yard free style, 8:l5: plunge for distance, 69 feet 3M inches: relay, 2:30.4. Crippen was the outstanding star of the 1924 and the 1925 swimming teams. winning first place at the state PEASE One of the most worth-while awards of the year is given annually by Mr. Laur-ance N. Pease of the faculty in form of a silver trophy cup which is given in memory of his little son, Ross Pease, who was accidentally killed at the age of nine, in August. meet each year. Plunging 60 feet at the first of the year, he increased this to 69 feet. Peters was also a high-point man. I-le was making 2:35 in the 220 and l:0l in the hundred. The former mark is l.7 seconds faster than the time at the state meet: yet Joe was only given second place. Waltman, who was considered the third best interscholastic diver in the United States, did not receive even a place at the state meet, although many of the spectators believed that he deserved at least a second place. Mahaffey, swimming his second year, was making good time in the backstroke and free style. Carr and Haight, the other sprint men, were negotiating the 50-yard free style in 27 flat. Johansen, the long distance man, was consistently cutting down his time for the 440 and looked like a winner. Wimble of last year's var- sity was the Tarzans' mainstay in the breast stroke. Hancock, a lower classman, took fourth place in the plunge at the state meet. Although the Tarzans won only fourth place this year, the season was very successful, and a ine team is be- ing built up for next year. TRGPHY H951 1922. The cup is awarded each year to the boy who makes the most points for the year in the C. I. F. swimming meets. Shirley Crippen is the honored one this year. Shirley won first place in the state swimming meet. Baseball To build up a sport which hitherto has not been classed as a major activ- ity seems to be a job which requires determination and consistency. Base- ball until 1924 lacked much of the support of the student body, but due to the splendid work of Coach Brad- ley, the 1924 year started off- fairly successful, and 1925 was even much better. The Stockton boys are still far from "good baseball" material, but if they keep improving as they have been under Coach Bradley, there is no doubt that in one or two years, the Tarzans will hold a high place in the league. JAPANESE, 11: STOCKTON. 8. On March 6, the first baseball game was played, and the Tarzans came 05 on the short end of the score. This was due probably to the fact that many of the Stockton men were absent because of basketball practice. . Lamasney and Pigozzi tossed for the varsity, while Dan Triolo did the best hitting of the day with his triple with three men on. IONE, 4: VARSITY, 15. Although the game was far from being a real twirling exhibition or a batting contest, the varsity showed flashes of form in beating Ione 4 to 15. MANTECA. ll VARSITY, 6. Although the game was called off at the fifth inning, one could easily see that if it had continued, the Tar- zans would have come out the vic- tors. Bert Lamasney did the twirl- ing for the varsity. Ernie George, Marvin Koster, and "Red" Berg were the outstanding hitters on the blue and white squad. PACIFIC, 0: VARSITY, l. In one of the tightest games played up to this point in the season was the Pacific-Varsity game. Although the varsity won by a lone run the Tigers had them guessing from start to finish. IQ1961 MODESTO, 1: STOCKTON, 6. Coach Brad1ey's ball tossers easily won the Modesto conflict 6 to 1. Ernie George, Marvin Koster, and Red Berg hit the ball especially hard for Stockton. Bert Lamasney pitched but ive scattered hits to the visitors. SACRAMENTO, 14: STOCKTON, .2. Although Lamasney pitched fairly good ball, it was not good enough to swamp the Senators who easily won 14 to 2. The 14 runs were made by Sacramentds hard hitting. LODI, 5: STOCKTON. 6. Taking advantage of the wildness of Lodi's hurlers, Brown and Sar- genti, and six errors committed be- hind the pair, the varsity men -were easily victors over.the Tokays. Berg contributed two runs for Stockton, while I-lotta contributed three. SACRAMENTO, 6: STOCKTON, 0. Defeated by Sacramento twice and thereby put out of the league, the Stockton ball players had nothing to look forward to except possibly to beat Lodi. The second Sacramento victory was less spectacular than the first. Pigozzi and Lamasney held the visitors to six runs, but Stockton lacked the batting power. LODI, 3: STOCKTON, 8. Meeting Lodi for the last time in any sport during the year and also ending the baseball season, the Tar- zans made a good day of it by past- ing out eight runs and holding the Tokays to three. Pigozzi and Lamasney matched their twirling against Brown, Sar- genti, and Martin. This game ended the baseball sea- son, a season which can be summar- ized as fairly successful. Although the Blues played good ball against Lodi, they fell down against Sacra- rnento. si- .:"m'L.. BASEBALL BLOCK "S" SOCIETY Owing to a long, uninterrupted season of athletics, the "S" societies had not been reorganized at'the time this book went to press. At the same time letters had not been awarded to the members of the basketball, track. or swimming teams, but letters will have been given by the end of the terms to all first-team members. The Block "S" Honor Athletic Society continued this year with the same oflicers elected last year, as fol- lows: George Barsi, president: Ernest George, vice-president: John Triolo, secretary: Dan Triolo, treas- urer: and Frank Rule, sergeant-at- arms. An election for new oflicers was scheduled for the end of the year. Many new members were added to- the society this year. The great number of new players that have turned out for the various sports has greatly swelled the membership. I1981 Those qualifying have won their let- ters by playing on a Class A team in a majority of league games and re- ceiving the recommendation of the coach and the sanction of the Execu- tive Committee. Following is a partial list of the members. lt is incomplete because of the failure of the club to complete organization and the lateness of awarding letters: Irving Pahl Cfoot- ball captainj, Hosmer Comfort, 'Wal- lace Moore, Lawrence Lerch, Stephen Dietrich, John Triolo, Dan Triolo, Clarence Bush, George Barsi, Ernest George, Percy Dyer, Don Carr, Pete Calcaterra, Abe Bromberg, Raymond Davis, Joe Peters, Attilio Parodi, William Graves, Erancis Bowen. George Woods, William McCoy, Sceoris Moyes Cfootball managerj, Harry Berg, Emmitt Johnson, Wil- liam Mahaffey, and Mitchell Oliver. CIRCLE "S" SOCIETY The "Circle 'S' Athletic Society" had many members this year, but very little organization, as the time of those composing it was taken up with the many activities in which the athletes found themselves engaged. The great turnout of new students for football left many students for the Circle "S" Society. It was ex- pected that new members would re- ceive the "Circle" for taking part in the various spring sports, but letters have not been awarded for these activities at the time of this writing. Because of the lack of time, new oflicers had not been elected when this article was written. The old officers were: Marvin Koster, president, James Kimball, Vice-president: Wil- liam McCoy, secretary: Hosmer Comfort, treasurer: and Joe Peters, sergeant-at-arms. As in the case of the Block "S" Society, full membership lists are not available. A meeting had not been called by May 1, and as a result, a list of active members was not ob- tainable. Names of all students to whom awards were made could not be found as the letters were given at various times, and later additions and changes were made. But as far as could be ascertained, the following students have received Circle "S's": Marvin Koster, Jack Eccleston, Rob- ert Koih, George Dohrman, Albert Fedler.

These last additions were all won in the basketball race in which our team won the state championship. The formal presentation of the em- blems of victory was made on May 5. The most beautiful of the three is a large silver basketball given for win- ning the championship of the north- ern section of the California Inter- scholastic Federation, As it is not a permanent trophy, another school may win it next year. In 1924 it fzooi was held by Placer Union High School. The second is a large silver plaque with an oak base. It is a duplicate of the federation seal and was given for winning the state championship. The third is the silver cup given for winning the sub-league champion- ship. The fourth is a certificate giving the "Guard and Tackle" weekly second place among the larger school newspapers of the state. This was awarded on May 16, at the second annual convention of the C. S. P. A. fCalifornia Scholastic Press Associa- tionj held at Stanford University. The S. H. S. paper ranked only one and one-half per cent below the Oak- land "Tech Scribe," which won first place. Tarnished by age, a cup bearing this almost invisible inscription is seen in the trophy cabinet: "Ath- letic Trophy, presented by John Garwood to the class in S. H. S. win- ning the semi-annual championship. Won by class of 1901 in l9Ol." There is no mark which shows in what sport the cup was won. Perhaps the most elegant symbol of victory is the Baseball Trophy "presented by Jackson and Earle in the annual championship between S. H. S. and S. B. C. It is large and very heavy, made of quadruple silver plate, vase-shaped, with exquisitely carved handles, legs, and neck. It bears no date, and on considerable in- quiry, it could not be learned what school the S. B. C. stands for. The Interclass Championship tro- phy presented by Peckett' Atterbury Co. does not tell when givengin what sport, or who -won it. In 1912 S. H. S. won two trophies at the Woodland Floral Festival. The largest of these was presented by Wil- liam M. Hyman, principal of Wood- land High School. The smaller re- sembles the old style wine goblets. In 1914 the freshman class won the interclass track meet and was pre- sented with a cup by A. A. Lynch of the Commercial Hotel. A very large, massive cup was won in 1917 in the one-half mile whale- boat race. It is called the Records Perpetual Challenge cup. In the same year the Junior class won the interclass tennis meet, and Johnson's sporting goods house gave them a silver cup. In 1918 the Sophomores won another cup presented by John- son's for winning the interclass track meet. The Irving S. Zeimer loving cup was first presented in 1921. In the same year the school received a cup and also the federation seal on an oak I2011 base for winning the state champion- ship in swimming. The year 1922 was a banner year. Nine trophies were won then: Two federation seals, one for state cham- pionship in swimming, the other for basketball: the Nl. S. Arndt trophy for track championship of San Joa- quin County: the Kuechler cup for 120 pound relay championship for the county: the Hansel and Ortrnan cup for unlimited relay championship of the county: the state basketball championship cup: the C. C. H. S. A. L. CCentral California High School Athletic Leaguej Class B football trophy: the beautiful bronze cup for the N. S. C. I. F. fNorthern Section California lnterscholastic Federationj championship in basketball: and the Kiwanis state basketball champion- ship trophy. In 1923 the following trophies were won: C. I. F. N. S. swimming championship: C. C. H. S. A. L. basketball championship: C. I. P. N. S. basketball championship: Harry Coffee state championship basketball: Homer S. Toms quarter mile trophy: C. C. H. S. A. L. class B basketball championship: C. I. F. N. S. basket- ball championship. In 1924 the only trophy won was outside the field of sports. It was the first award for the best-edited high school newspaper in California in class A, schools of over one thousand. It waswon by our own Guard and Tackle at the State High School Journalism Convention at Stanford University. It was given by the l'Palo Alto Times." In all there are twenty-eight cups, four silver plaques, and one silver basketball, and the journalism certi- ficate. Others may be added this year, as swimming and possibly other events were not completed when this was written. May future generations of high school students carry on the name and fame of S. H. S. so fittingly symbolized iii these beautiful tro- phies. -Harry W. Webster. H621 IT ' - ,"a,frS,:"Prj' 3--3 fn -V I ,-345-R-'Mp-5. ,VL-,L-f-51,-. 1. .,- Y,r,-F?
