To Miss Ann Frances Williams, Be
loved and Esteemed by All Who
Know her as Dramatic Coach,
Teacher, or Friend, Is This
Book Lovingly Dedicated.
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
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!

Four centuries ago in a far-off land
called Essaichess, dwelt a very pow-

started out in their career as insignifi-

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-

On and on they climbed, and their
second period was still more success-

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

Ferguson, shone, proved itself a huge
success to be remembered even in this

this period they accomplished great

were kind of green, but they did
things up right and elected Mervin

, Executziqve Committee .
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
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
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-,
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

BOYS' STUDENT CONTROL
An average of ten cases a meeting
shows the efiiciency of the 1924-25
Boys' Student Control Committee,
but the large number of offenders
nearly swamped at times the proceed-
ings of the court. 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
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-
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

To succeed the well-patronized
but ineffective detention plan, the de-
merit system of student discipline, an
innovation in this part of the state,
was introduced in S. 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
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.
The girls' discipline committee was
composed of Miss Mclnnes Cdean of
girlsj chairman, Miss Alexander.
Miss Coleman, Miss Langmade, and
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-
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.
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
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
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.
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
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.

taken part in the orchestra during the
past year: James Barr, George Barsi,

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-

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-
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-
Miss Douglas, head of the French
department, Miss Lukes, and Mr.
Donoho gave much valuable assist-
ance to the club.
EL' CASINO ESPANOL

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
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
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:

"Let's eat"-seemed to be the first
thought of the overworked journal-
ists belonging to the Press Club, and
consequently the first activity of the
club when re-organized early in
March was to hold a banquet.
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

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
concluded by reading Edgar A.

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,
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.
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
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-
ing the College of the Pacific visited
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
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.
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 HI-Y CLUB
The Hi-Y Club is the only club
of its kind in Stockton High School.

both in membership and activities.
It is made up of freshmen and sopho-

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-
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-
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
the part of a Red Cross nurse, and
four other students represented some
of the different nationalities aided by
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
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-
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.

composer and author of the songs

entertained the students on April 20.
During the year interesting travel-
ogues were given by various teachers.
Miss McCoy spoke about enchanting
Switzerland on December 3. Miss
Larson told of her interesting voyage
to Scandinavia on January 7, but
before she spoke the oral expression
class of 1924 presented their gift of
beautiful furniture to the school.
Miss L. Williams told of the wonders
of that ancient city Pompeii on
March l 1. A talk on Rothenburg, a
medieval city of Germany, was inter-
estingly given on March '51 and April
1, by Mr. Weber with the help of the
ballopticon to illustrate his visit to
the ancient city. Mrs. Van Vlear
spoke upon "The Unusual in Euro-
pean Trips" on April 22.
During the year many enthusi-
astic rallies were held to arouse school
spirit for the football and basketball
games. Naturally the rally of the
year was after the Stockton High
School varsity basketball team won
, 7' .-A
from Porterville High School. On
April 13, the state championship
basketball team took their places
upon the stage While the audience
clapped for the victorious team. Mr.
Frank Quinn. one of Stockton's busi-
ness men and a graduate of S. H. S.,
was the Hrst speaker. The speakers
that followed him were Mr. Garri-
son, Coach HPete" Lenz, and Harry
The above are among the more
important meetings held during the
year up to May l when the annual
went to press. lt would be impossi-
ble to include all, but the variety and
value of such meetings are well indi-
cated by the ones selected.
The sky grew gray
Witla end of day.
A sultry heat oppressive lay,
A feeling tense,
That soon the thund'ring would
Joined those that waited.
Rain hung in air with damp breath ,
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
But sunshine gay
Broke through the gray,
And sent the vanquished host away.
-Marian Los Kamp.
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-
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

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 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

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!"
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
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
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
'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.
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
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
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,
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
Thy service is both troublesome and
Oh, how thy ceaseless weeping makes
For pockets which give riskful house
When oft at deep, dark night, I need
And from the hall the clock's night
bell I hear,
Into my pocket's depths deep down
I clutch, and o'er my fingers flows
thy ebbing sea.
Yet when thy virtues in my thoughts
I with remorse recall thy priceless use,
My tardy patience taxed with hard
With all thy faults,
I think of thee
And feel thy worth and cherish long

l see that thou hast given all I would.
-Marian Los Kamp.
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

The Tacky Day Dance on May 5
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.
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

"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

people and students attended.
Songs, classical and humorous,
were sung by the chorus of students

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
"The Lord's Prayer," in the Rus-
dividuals. The numbers were en-
cored again and again by the audi-
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-
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.
"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.

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
"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,

, Girls' Association
The Girls' Association of Stockton
High School has grown from a small
society of a few hundred girls to a
large important organization of ener-
getic young women whose purposes
as expressed this year have been: to
a democratic spirit among
of the school, to welcome
freshmen and other strangers, to help
the school buildings and
to encourage the societies
composed exclusively of girls, to sup-
port all girls' activities, and to de-
velop breadth of vision and finer
standards among the girls of the
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.
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-

large number of those who attended

Association on November 8 to wel-

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,

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
"Sue Drouinf' whose performance
as "Miss Fortune" kept the audience
in constant gales of laughter, was a

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.

who recited "My Daddy," and no
less attractive was Dorothv Ham-

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
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

ture of the assembly. The band
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
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
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.

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

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
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.
Detudrops are fairies
Blythe, happy, and gay,
Sparkling and dancing
Mirroring the dawn-
Datun's celestial hues-
Fragrance of the morning-
God's eternal Love.
A cycle of quaint and characteristic
folk dances and an original dance
drama. "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

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
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

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-
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

FIRST SEMESTER SPECIAL EDITION OF WEEKLY
"A thing of beauty is a.joy for-
ever." 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
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
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-
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-
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
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.
The sky was turquoise
The sea was jadeg
Ana' the hills a necklace
Of erneralds made.
The night' was onyx
With a pearl for a moon:
And the dawn was diamonds
That were lost too soon.
Your cheeks were coral 5
Your eyes were jet:
And your mouth was a ruby,
I can't forget-
Your laugh was siluer
And sapphires old-
But, oh, your heart
Was all pure gold!

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
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
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!

SENIOR PLAY CAST
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
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-
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
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
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
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
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
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
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

CHARMS" OF "THE CHARM SCHOOL
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

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.

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
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

AMONG THE TREES
Seqven or Eleven.
fFz'rst Prize Storyj
It was a bright September morning
when I arose at the unaccustomed
hour of 7:30, shook off longing for
the joys of the swiftly-flown vaca-
tion, and joined the throng of stu-
dents wending their way to Ranston
High School, which stood with doors
wide open to receive them. 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
grass in the springtime-and sweep-
ing over the chattering crowd, my
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.
It was short, decisive, but I tried
A'Got your program straightened
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
"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
"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
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,
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
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
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
"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,
"I don't know." said "I-lick"
simply. 'iThe numbers just natu-
rally came to me then,"

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
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
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
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
"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
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
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
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

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
them, despite his seven lives. Malty
met the company and proceeded to
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

Suddenly Malty's senses came

'AThe money is hidden somewhere

Mr. Williams, who drove on without
much more information than he had
already had before coming to Mr.
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-
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-
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
"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-
"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
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
"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
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

sounded like that of a scared child.
"Wluy, certainly. Remember it
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

"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-
On they walked over the dilapi-
dated floor, which creaked at every
step. At last they came to a door.
This they opened and saw a stairway
of spiral construction.
"The front door has slammed
shut. l'd better go open it: so there
will be no delay in. getting out in case

"All right. Prop it open with a

Before Tom had reached the top
of the stairs, he stumbled over some-
thing. What could it be? He looked
"The door to the stairs has closed,

dining room and on into what looked
to be the kitchen. Tom directed
Dickens to prop open all doors that

"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-
A noise was heard in front of the
"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

a whisper. "Come here. Come

gold, but there's a whole pile of

'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.
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
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
"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-
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.
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
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

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

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
"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

corduroys and a flannel shirt, and

pared for anything from a fist fight to
a revolution. Walking rapidly and
making his feet land with a firm tread

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
"I guess you thought it funny that

you. Well, you see, that Mr. Lewis

This morning as I walked the town,

It lighted on the new green leaves,
And filled the birds with melodies:
And when I saw that wondrous
It filled my soul with great delight,
For, lo! a rugged hillside old
I-Iad burst and showed' 'twas lined
The weeping willow tree
Bends down her lovely head
I wonder if her leaves can be
The tears that she has shed?
Softly her swaying
To the kisses of the breeze
Gently is spraying
Down the tears of her leaves.
Slowly her sighing
Changes just to croon to me.
She has left her crying
And is singing silently.

How they came that way.
Did they drop from heaven,

Aye, they dropped from heaven,

FROM OX-CART TO AUTOMOBILE
fSecond Prize Essayj
"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.

handling the reins, flanked on either
side by the twins, who, dressed in
their new Fauntleroy suits, were un-
'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

gayly painted vehicle passed down

wheel with one hand while with the
other he pressed the rubber bulb of

dutifully manipulating the hand oil

cylindered motor. The whole ma-
chine quivered from the vibration

the large glass-covered speedometer
showed they were making the terrific
speed of thirty-live miles an hour.
"Thank you." A silk-clad. satin-
shod foot touches a metal projection

motor responds with a purr, and the
long low car leaps away from the

sixty horses throbbing under the

masterpiece of both skilled engineer

rafters and rough tables were hewn.
Into your shelter curious redmen came

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
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-

GIFTS FROM CLASSES .
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
"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-
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
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.
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. -

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
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
and served by the girls of Miss Post's
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

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
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
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.
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:
Sacramento, Catherine Browng Ma-
dera, Ellsworth Bruce: Manteca,
Porothy Clarke: Ripon, Emily Bige-
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.

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
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.

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
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.

REGINALD PRESTON RICHARDSON
Presented to Stockton High School
in the spring of 1924 by Mr. and
Mrs. I.eslie V. Richardson of Byron
in honor of their son, Reginald Pres-
ton Richardson, '23, this is the only
S. H. S. scholarship for which moral
character and participation in school
activities count more than scholar-
ship. It is awarded by a committee
composed of the principal of the high
school, the boys' physical education
director, the general secretary of the
Y. M. C. .7-X., the president of the
College of the Pacific, and Mrs.
Hazel Ellerbrock, and yields one hun-
dred and twenty dollars each year as
the tuition for the first year in the
College of the Pacific. The first one
to receive this scholarship was Titus
Aungst, class of 1924.
KIWANIS CLUB SCHOLARSHIP
The Kiwanis Club scholarship
was presented to Stockton High
School by the Stockton Kiwanis
Club on June 5, 1923, at a luncheon
held. on the campus. The amount
of one hundred and twenty dollars
for the first year's tuition in the Col-
lege of the Pacihc is loaned annually
to the most deserving member of the
senior class on the same basis as the
Rotary Club scholarship. The win-
ners are: Vincent Johanson, class of
1923: Agnes McGee, class of 1924.
SELMA RIESE ZEIMER SCHOLAR-
SHIP FOR GIRLS
Dr. Irving S. Zeimer presented this
scholarship to the school in 1921 in
honor of his wife. for whom the
scholarship is named. It yields yearly
the sum of one hundred dollars to be
given to a girl who is entitled to en-
ter any institution of higher educa-
tion. The girls who have succeeded
so far in obtaining this honor are:
Clara Lucille Hall, class of 19213
Alice McCaughey, class of 1922:
Thelma West, class of 1923: and
Ruth Fitch, class of 1924.
ROTARY CLUB CIRCULATING
The Rotary Club of Stockton in-
augurated this scholarship in the
spring of 1921. By it three hundred
dollars is awarded each year, but the

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.
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-

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-

26-Good ship S. H. S. out-smarts
old crew on gridiron by 18-10
score. Dan Triolo set sail after

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.
1-The worthy, noble wise. up-
right members of the crew, oth-
erwise seniors, met on this day

teen pounds to the man was the
cause of the mishap.

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.

Stockton and Sacramento, the

S. H. S. YELL 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. Three cheers for Bill and his assistants!

Driving, passing, plunging, run-
ning-but always playing the game
fair--is the synopsis of the 1925
football season. 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-
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
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
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
which would have decided the con-
tests in their favor when the gun
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
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
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
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
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.

such was Coach Ben Lewis' advent
into football at Stockton High. A
summary of the 1925 season bears a

went even one game farther than they

Although the Stocktonians were

the score ended in the Blues' favor.

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."

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 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-
At the first of the season, the going
was rough, and many of the second

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

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
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

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.
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

STOCKTON, 22: C1Al.,T. 23.
After making ten field goals to the

to the latter in an exciting game upon
the Galt court. The Tarzans were

Gallachini starred for Galt, while
Berg was high-point man for Stock-
- 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
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-

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.
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-
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
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-

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
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
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

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
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

Grey, Higby, John and Westgate will
be here next year.
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
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
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
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
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,

The sectional meet was a farce, as
only one opposing school entered a
team of one man.
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

Peters was also a high-point man.
I-le was making 2:35 in the 220 and

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

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
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

best hitting of the day with his triple

being a real twirling exhibition or a

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.

In one of the tightest games played
up to this point in the season was the
Pacific-Varsity game. Although the

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-

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.

whom awards were made could not
be found as the letters were given at
various times, and later additions and

Four new trophies were added in
1924-1925 to the already large array
which are now in possession of the
school. 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
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
was held by Placer Union High
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-
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
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
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
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-
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-
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-

A LATE TRAGEDY
When I awoke this morning
At half past seven or eight,
My heart stood still as all hearts will
XVhen they see 'tis awfully late.
I dressed myself at sixty per
And thought in some dismay
That I wouldn't have 'time to break-
fast or dine:
So I jumped in the Chevrolet.
Down the road in a whirl of dust
' Our trusty Chev. did ramble,
Soon arrived at Hi to recite or die:
So out of the car I did scramble.
I joined a group of jabbering girls
When-sad, alack! 'tis pity-
I heard a call, glanced down the hall,
We were booked for the discipline
The engine puffs on the steep up
That fat man puffs on the hill,
The cream puffs puff in the bakeries,
But the high school girl puffs still.
