OU, GRADUATING CLASS, and I have not had much chance to get
acquainted during the one semester We have worked together, but
I hope that our association has been as pleasant for you as for me.
W You are leaving Stockton High School after four years of contact
with its traditions and life. What have they meant to you and What meaning
will they have in the years to come? Most of you have accepted the responsi-
bilities of high school life with a full sense of their meaning, with the result
that your stay in school has been profitable to you and to us. If you carry
the same spirit into your activities after school, you will get the same joy out
of them as you have from your school. You have learned a good deal about
many subjects, but the thing that you will carry away and keep for all time
probably is--theaattieudegyou have hadftoward youLwork,TLet there be.a joy
in what you do, a desire to serve, and you will be counted successful.
W. FRED ELLIS.

Game of '26 Midsters Told in Four Quarters
Great team crashes to victory with score of 65 members to OI
The Blue and Gold Aggregation of S. H. S. won fame and recognition in
a smashing mid-term victory on January 28, 1926. The game was fought
against towering obstacles, but the Hnever-say-die" spirit brought the colors
flying through the fray. Much praise and credit belong to Coaches Post,
Osborn, Ward, and McGlothlin.
A big crowd turned out for first practice on the S. H. S. gridiron. Con-
sternation reigned among faculty coaches and varsity players when the green
mob overflowed the field. Much ignorance and awkwardness were displayed
in the first workouts, but the mass was finally reduced to some order. Three
men showed the makings of great players in this first round: Wallace Moore,
Clarence Bush and Mitchell Oliver. Jack Reid starred in dramatic workshop.
"Hail, Hail, the Gang's All Here!"
The cheerful fellow informed everybody that '26 was on hand for grid
practice of the second quarter. After a general scrimmage one William Ma-
haffey emerged before the public eye. Paula Weinstein and Hubert Miller
scored in debating and art, respectively, and Clarence Bush rose in basketball
as well as football.
Full-fledged substitutes were the members of the Blue and Gold team,
"rarin' to go" at the beginning of the third season. Ted Clark, Sue Drouin,
Paula Weinstein, Bernyce Ingersoll, Mitchell Oliver landed on the Hstudent
controls": Janice Dixon, Edward Cottle, Mitchell Oliver, Nika O'Connell, and
William Striplin covered ground in journalism. At the end of this season the
"dope" was all in favor of '26.
"Come on, Gang!"
The war cry sounded when sixty-five members of the Blue and Gold team
entered upon their last quarter. After a rousing rally, Clarnce Bush was chosen
captain, but when he decided that he was trying to play too many positions,
Hubert Miller was prevailed upon to call signals. Paula Weinstein was assist-
ant-captain: Janice Dixon, record-keeper: Ted Clark, fee-taker. As yell lead-
ers, Ted Clark and Jack Reid roused big enthusiasm in the student body.
The team set as its goal the inauguration of complete mid-term activities,
and began its smashing drive for victory. Effective tackles brought from the
Executive Committee consent to back the mid-term annual. Ground was
gained with other activities, but the big score was made with a beautifully
executed play, "lt Pays to Advertise." Twenty-six reached its goal and won
its victory on a memorable day in January and set itself apart as a "wonder
team," a pioneer team, a team to inspire all middites of the future.

thy Ulrici, secretary-treasurer: Helen Yohner, vice-president, and
Olive Wells, sergeant-at-arms.

GIRLS' STUDENT CONTROL
first meeting of the new girls' student control committee was called
-g on September l7, 1925, by Clara Catherine Hudson, the president
Very carefully selected, by the president and the dean of girls was
'ii' 'W the group of girls who made up the "body of peace makers." Those
chosen to enforce the laws of the school are: Helen Grimsley, Bernyce Ingersoll,
Evelyn Reid, Bernice St. Clair, Ruth Stiles, Mary Garvin Hammond, Minna
Hicks, Camille Pike, Dorothy Ulrici, Josephine Wixson, La Vergne White,
Mary Louise Leistner, and Juanita Stanley. These girls showed their ability
by having a smaller number of cases the first half of the year than in the same
time during the past two or three years.
BOYS' STUDENT CONTROL
The functioning of the Boys' Student Control Committee started at a
meeting held on September l7, 1925. The members are: Mervin Garibotto,
president: Joe Peters, secretary: Clarence Bush, Harry Berg, Stephen Dietrich,
Harry Pearce, Francis Queirolo, Francis Bowen, Jack Eagal. Marvin Koster and
The duty of these boys is to be leaders of the school, and to enforce the
school laws. Those students guilty of breaking these laws are given demerits
according to the seriousness of the offense after a fair trial by the student control
members and ratiflcation by the faculty discipline committee. An average of
fifteen cases a meeting. which was held once a week, shows that the control
members have been very active.
JUNIOR RED CROSS
On October 6 the first meeting of the Junior Red Cross was held
to plan their work for the coming year. The group was com-
posed of Junior Red Cross representatives, one elected from each
adviser section, who constituted the Junior Red Cross council and
served during the year. The society was financed by dues of fifty
cents collected from each advisor section. The first work of the
year was sending thirty-five Christmas boxes to the poor children
i of Ciuam. Each advisory group who chose to do this was given
a Red Cross box to be filled with Christmas gifts suitable for a boy or a girl.
These were sent to San Francisco by November 16, and on November 20 were
sent on their way to Guam. This welfare work was accomplished under the
leadership of Lucy Ritter, chairman, and Rossi Reynolds, secretary.
In the fall of 1925 a publicity campaign was held by the mem-
bers of the Hi-Y Society in order that students might learn the
creed and platform of their order. The Senior Hi-Y Society, which
is composed of juniors and seniors, held their first meeting on
October 7. Dwight Campbell was elected president: Robert Peter- '
son, vice-president: Dwight Humphreys, treasurer: and Harry Berg, fy
:hairman of the athletic committee. They met every Wednesday 6
evening. Their platform consists of clean speech, good sports-
manship, high scholarship, clean living, and the support of all noble causes
that tend toward the betterment of the school.
The Junior Hi-Y Society accomplished much after their first meet-
ing on October IZ, when Tully Knoles was elected president: Lee
Hathaway, vice-president: Bernard Ruhl, and Wilson Morehead,
sergeants-at-arms, This society, open to all worthy freshmen or
sophomores, met every Monday night. In this, their second year,
they plan to send four boys to the Senior Hi-Y Convention at
French. Spanish, and Latin Clubs hold a place of undisputed
importance among the organizations of Stockton High School, but V ,
it was not until November, l925, that a real effort was made to 5 i
organize a society for the study of English literature.
The movement was started by a number of boys under the
leadership of Ralph Nagle in Miss A. Howell's ll-B English 34,
class, and on November 14, a group of students met in the assembly
to discuss plans for the new organization, It was decided that the '
club should be called "The Literary Club," rather thanf"AEnglish Club," since
the word "literary" included a wider range of subjects than the word "English,"
A committee was chosen to draw up a constitution and present it at the club
at the next meeting.
"Soda waterf Soda waterl Ice cold Soda waterY" Such was the
nature of the cry that floated from a gaily decorated booth, man-
aged by the French Club, in front of the boys' gymnasium last
Tacky day, This booth, trimmed with red, white and blue paper
ribbons as symbols of the French, was the out-standing activity
of US' Amicale Francaise" during the past semester. Interesting
monthly meetings composed the real program of the club. The
governing body consisted of: Bernita Salmon, president: Janice
Dixon, vice-president: Margaret Wisler, secretary: Ruby Tremain, treasurer,
and Joe Tremain, sergeant-at-arms. The chairmen of the various committees
appointed by President Salmon were: Entertainment, Lucy Ritter: .Music,
Mildred Judy: Publicity, Bessie Backes, and Decorations, Elizabeth Dozier.
Not the famed "Charleston" but their own version of the
Spanish "Tango" brought roars of laughter and gales of applause
from members of the Spanish Club to Allison Pope and William
Mahaffey at the meeting of El Casino Espanol, held in the assem-
bly hall on December l, 1925. At that same meeting Lois Scantle-
bury, Thelma Tretheway, Dorothy Ratto and Erma Davidson
sang "La Golondrinau and "Titina," accompanied on the piano
by Janice Dixon. A reading, "El Alma Espanola," was given by
The club, which holds meetings at least once a quarter, elected at their
first meeting, which was held during the latter part of October: William Ma-
haffey, president: Yvonne Goulding, vice-president: Lois Scantlebury, secre-
tary: Meyer Corren, treasurer: Virgil Belew, sergeant-at-arms.
Feminine science enthusiasts met in November to discuss plans for
their year's activities. Officers of the Philophysean Club, who
were elected last June for this year, were: Ruby Tremain, presi-
dent: Margaret Wisler, secretary-treasurer. On the latter's moving
to Oakland, Orma White was chosen to fill the oflice. Another
meeting of the club was held on December 4, l925, when the
members were divided into groups according to the science they
were taking, and a chairman was appointed for each group. Each
group was to prepare club programs. In connection with prospective programs.
Mr. Snook and Mr. Sweet, science teachers, offered to address the club.
The members voted to get pins, and other interesting matters were arranged
to make this year's program exceptionally interesting.

on November l7, l925, when pictures of Pompeii and other cities were shown
in the' assembly during advisor period. Other pleasant meetings and instruc-
tive entertainments are being anticipated for the rest of the year.
Ye "news hounds" and Hpen pushers" who compose the Press
Club met for the first time on September 16, 1925, and elected
oHicers for the year. Jean Williams was chosen president: Dwight
Humphreys, vice-president: Dorothy Lloyd, secretary, Virgil Be-
Two experienced journalists addressed the club at its second
meeting on September 29 and discussed newspaper work very in'-
terestingly, These personages were Alvin Trivlepiece and Melvin
Bennett, former editor and sport editor, respectively. on the "Guard and Tackle"
and now students of the College of the Pacific. Both had had considerable prac-
tical experience on papers. Plans for "The Tacku were discussed on October
l3. On November 24, the ambitious journalists decided that a banquet should
be given on December 8.
With the establishing of an agricultural course in Stockton
High School, a new organization was added to the list of societies
in the school. This latest addition was the Agriculture Club, or- 'fu
ganized on October l5, 1925. At the first meeting XVilliam Ma- . Q
haliey was elected president: Stafford Wild, vice-president: Robert in '
Koch, secretary: Alvin Schneider, sergeant-at-arms. Plans were W
made to meet on the first and second Monday nights of each
month and meetings were to be devoted to the discussion of some
particular phase of agriculture. .
Mr. Wakefield, owner of a fox farm, and Mr. Single, local taxidermist,
spoke to the club at its second meeting on October 22, l925. Although the
Agriculture Club is new, it has already done much. and the new society
gives every promise of becoming a most lively and worth-while organization.

this system activity points are awarded for certain student activities such as:
Student coaching, typewriting, monitor service, laboratory service, and library
assistance. No more than two activity points are permissible in any line of
activity. No more than three points are awarded to a student in one quarter.
For the quarter ending November 6, one hundredand nine students enrolled
in the society. Four tied for first place with l8 points each. They were:

NTHUSIASM and interest marked the organizing of the Girls' Glee Club
in November, 1925, with Frank Thornton Smith as vocal director.
lt was planned that the club should meet every Wednesday at adviser
e'Yi1iff?P"ij' period in order to practice.
Fifty-one girls had signed up for glee by November l8, and at least nfty
more were anticipated and wanted. Anyone was welcome to join the organ-
ization, and the girls were to have their own president and other oflicers. Both
instructor and students worked with the ideal that this organization may de-
velop into a full, competent Glee Club, so that Stockton High School may have
her representation in music as well as in other arts and activities.
At the first meeting of the Executive Committee, on September 9, 1925,
all members were present. These were: Clarence Bush, chairman: Ansel Wil-
liams, secretary: Virgil Belew, long-term editor: Jean Williams, short-term
editor: Ted Clarke and Bernice Ingersoll, senior representatives: George Dohr-
mann, sophomore representative: Clara Catherine Hudson, first vice-president
of the student body: Mervin Garibotto, second vice-president: and Mr. Lau-
rance N. Pease, faculty advisor.
lt was through this committee that the mid-year graduating class was able
to publish the mid-year annual. Without the backing of the Executive Com:
mittee it would have been impossible to have published this book. It was also
by the aid of this committee that Tacky Day was made a success. By these
activities and many more this committee has shown itself to be an eflicient and

as president of the league. The officers of the association for the year were:
president. Yvonne Goulding: vice-president, Evelyn Jones, and secretary and
treasurer, Helen Wilcox.
The work was handled by numerous committees as follows: athletics and
personal efficiency, entertainment, absent girls, publicity, girls' rooms, scrap
book, welfare, social service, and nnance. The work of the Entertainment
Committee has been to provide entertainment for the freshman reception,
the league convention. and the various meetings of the girls. The Finance
Committee did its part by making blue and white swishers and chrysanthe-
mums and selling them for the athletic games.
The Welfare Committee. under the able direction of Lucy Ritter, has been
working to get the "honor system" established in our high school. This com-
mittee had charge of an assembly of the girls at which the following spoke:

GIRLS' LEAGUE CONVENTION
HE convention of the San Joaquin Valley Girls' League was held at
lr Stockton High School on November ll when representatives from
alll twenty-two high schools met to discuss problems dealing with high
f i? school girls. The first meeting opened at IO a. m., with music by
the High School Orchestra and songs by the Girls' Glee Club. Principal W.
Fred Ellis gave the oHicial welcome.
Visalia Union was elected to choose a president for next year: Fresno Tech-
nical, secretary: Modesto, treasurer, and Kingsburg Joint Union, third adviser.
HCharacter Education" was the topic discussed by Dr. Katherine Rogers Adams,

Hanford, Tulare, and Sanger compose a new committee appointed for the
purpose of developing further the standardization of the point system. The
Committee on Resolutions, consisting of representatives from Bret Harte Union,
Tulare, and Sanger, thanked Stockton High School for her generosity and kind-
ness during the convention. President Clara Catherine Hudson then announced
the reception for the guests and students that was held in the girls' gymnasium
that evening. Between dances, short bits of entertainment arranged by the
entertainment committee were presented. The prettily decorated hall and the
cordiality of the hostesses assured everyone a good time.
, FRESHMAN RECEPTION
Little green pennants were given to the freshman girls to distinguish them
from their older sisters, as they entered the boys' lgymnasium on October 23
for the first freshman reception of the year. 'Janet Morton's Victory," a
four-act play, composed by Sue Drouin, was presented during the afternoon.
The action centered around a group of boarding school girls, the scenes being
laid in the school reception room.
Yvonne Goulding. president of the Cwirls' Association. gave a short speech,
stating that every upper class girl should know at least five Freshmen before
the end of the party. Anna Eagal, Betty Hackett, Dorothy Malloy, Dorothy
Reynolds, and Ysabel Cureton gave a Dutch dance. The remainder of the
afternoon, until 5 o'clock, was spent in dancing.
THE NIGHTSHIRT PARADE
The annual nightshirt parade and bonfire were held not before the Sacra-
mento game this year, as has been the custom since time immemorial, but before
the Lodi game.
Several hundred students gathered at the high school on the evening of
November 25. The procession went down California to Main, and then to
Hunter Square. The noise and the bonfire drew several thousand people, who
had a good View of the yell rally. The bonfire was so hot that it was impos-
sible to have yells at first, but as the fire subsided, the students gathered around
to encourage the team on to the Lodi victory.
Old Clothes, gaudy clothes, futuristic clothes made Tacky Day a particu-
larly colorful event on Friday afternoon, November 23. More than one
thousand startlingly garbed students took part in the parade which started at
the high szhool, and 'Anoised" its way through the main streets of town.
A vaudeville show in the boys' gymnasium followed. and afforded the
onlookers much amusement. The Prunepicker's Orchestra furnished the music
for the "nickel dance." A "grand march," in which the A'Tackyites" partici-
pated in order that the judges might see which students had arrayed themselves
in the most conspicuous Hnery, was a feature of the dance. Leah Holt and
Sam Kramarski were decided upon as being the best dressed couple present. The
different language clubs conducted booths at which ice cream, candy, hot dogs,
pies, and soft drinks were sold.
Ted Clark, official manager of Tacky Day, contributed much towards mak-
ing this year's Tacky Day a better and more original one than its predecessors
have been. The returns from Tacky Day amounted to Sl6l.l3, 5544.53 of
which was netted by the "Tack." The "Tack" was written and edited by
the Press Club.

THE NEWS WRITING CLASS
The newswriters are not only a class but they are a real activity in the
school. They serve the school probably to a greater extent than any other
class. Week in and week out, they report the bulk of news faithfully and
earnestly, at the same time trying to be accurate and constructive. As a ma-
jority of the class this term are members of the Press Club and will also belong
to next semester's weekly staff, their pictures will appear in the June annual.
The members of the first semester class are: Marie Allen, Nevada Barnett,
Evelyn Brown, Edwin Fairall, Ida Gianelli, William Striplin, Virginia Hall,
Mary Garvin Hammond, Roblin Hewlett, Harry Hoffman, Alta Holmes,
Miriam Hoyt, Isabelle Hudson, Dwight Humphreys, Dorothy Malloy, Georgia
Manual, Harold Musser, Albert Saline, Catherine Smith, and Ruth Utt.
The fonrnnlisfn Convention
The Guard and Tackle again won hon-
ors for Stockton High School at the annual
convention of the California Scholastic Press
Association held at Stanford University on
November lO and ll. Two silver cups and
a certificate were awarded respectively for the
best annual, the best editorials, and one of the
three best high school newspapers in the State
Since the founding of this organization
three years ago under the auspices of the Stan-
ford chapter of Sigma Delta Chi, national
honorary journalistic fraternity, the Guard
and Tackle has won laurels each year. The
first year Stockton received first place for the
weekly and second place for the best news
story. The second year the weekly was rated
second: and this year, by capturing three high prizes, the climax was reached.
The winning book was edited by Betty Coffin, now of the College of Pacific,
and Douglas Fuller, now at Stanford University. Several factors which helped
the book to victory were: the originality of the departments and features, the
variety of the material, the artistic border of the pages, the various campus
views, and the completeness of each department.
Those responsible for the editorial prize are: editor-in-chief, Virgil Belew,
with some assistance from Evelyn Reid, Yvonne Cioulding, and Jessie Lynn.
Six editorials, three by the editor, and one each, from the other three, gave
Stockton the trophy. Professor E. W. Smith, head of the journalism depart-
ment at Stanford, stated that the chief good points of these editorials were:
their organization, their constructive spirit, and their friendly tone.
Stockton High School felt very proud of
receiving the certificate of third place for the
weekly paper, due to the fact that competi-
tion was very keen in this aspect of the con-
test. "First - rateness, not third - rateness, is
implied by this award," says the faculty ad-
viser of publications. "We should think of
the sixty-odd papers which we excelled,
rather than the two which excelled us," she
This year's convention was the largest
ever held. Nearly seventy high schools were
represented, and about three hundred dele-
gates were present. This last number was
about double that of last year. The dele- A
gates from Stockton were: Miss Csbornl ,
faculty adviser, Virgil Belew, Clinton Mc-
Combs, Jean Williams, Evelyn Reid, and Na- f

BON VOYAGE, SENIORS!
V QR THE first time in the history of Stockton High School a mid-year
-' annual is issued. It is entirely fitting that there should be such a
5 L publication to commemorate the graduation of the mid-term grad-
X0! uates: for each has done the necessary work which entitles one to a
Stockton High School diploma, and it is only fair that they be granted all the
privileges and honors which are ordinarily accorded the June graduates.
Anyone who is graduated from an institution like the Stockton High
School has taken the first step toward a successful career, for a high school edu-
cation is not a haphazard proposition-it is a combination of systematized
knowledge and training which go far enough to form the nucleus for a higher
education. It is the foundation for good citizenship and a successful business
In the main the trend of high school instruction is not only in the direc-
tion of more ethical standards of living, but also towards a very practical side
of life. The course in architectural drawing, for instance, will awaken
within the student a love for artistic buildings and at the same time train his
sense of proportion and give him practical ideas of building construction. The
various courses in English, news writing, and public speaking have more than
a cultural value. They are indeed extremely practical. Economics, a subject
ably taught at the Stockton High School, is absolutely essential to anyone who
wishes to be well informed. Perhaps the interpretation of present-day prob-
lems through a study of the past is one of the most valuable and practical aims
of the history courses. And so we might enumerate the courses in mathematics,
science, and language, and show how each one is an asset.
As the years roll by, the members of this graduating class will View their
high school days in retrospect. Undoubtedly the memory of many teachers
will be an inspiration to them. The association with their instructors is going
to prove of more value than they now realize. They will look back with
an added respect for these teachers and with greatest appreciation of their efforts.
The graduates have reached a goal for which they have striven through four
years of faithful labor. But this goal is not the end: it is only one in a series of
still greater goals to follow. May they successfully cope with all the problems
and responsibilities which they are called upon to face, and may prosperity
and happiness attend them.

The issuance of this semi-annual marks a new milestone in journalism at
Stockton High School. The book may be called the pioneer of its series. Great
credit for its final accomplishment is due Mr. Ellis and Mr. Pease, whose pro-
gressiveness has made the innovation possible against all obstacles. Inspiration
and the major part of the labor has fallen to Miss Lucy E. Osborn, faculty

dramatic production of a mid-year class in Stockton High School. Although
it had not been produced at the time this article was written, all signs pointed
to a genuine triumph. Eorced to postpone the date Hrst set, the cast and coach
went on working for a still more finished production.
The coach of the play was a new member of the faculty, Miss Lizette Ward,
who took able hold on the situation and made a unified group of players out
of the practically inexperienced seniors. The pioneer cast that made dramatic
and class history in Stockton High School included: Audrey Lambourn as
HMary Grayson," Jack Reid as "Rodney Martin," William Striplin as 'AAm-
brose Pealef' Ted Clark as 'Cyrus Martin," Sue Drouin as "Comtesse de Beau-
rien," Paula Weinstein as "Marie," Bernyce Ingersoll as "Aunt Susan," John
Doyle as "Ellery," Eugene Bigelow as "George McChesney," Edwin Sweet as
"Charles Bronson," and Thelma Jennings as "Miss Burke."
This able cast had a play full of rollicking humor, new situations, and
clever ideas from beginning to end, a play in which the young hero makes a
fortune selling a soap that has never been manufactured! Those who saw
this play on January 22 now have more ideas about making money than they
ever before had thoughtsf

"PASSING OF THE THIRD FLOOR BACK"
Passing of the Third Floor Back," the play produced in the new
will T 'l 12, his auditorium on January 8 by the first mid-year sophomore oral
expression class, easily proved itself to be equal to the many past
productions of the September oral expression classes. Except for the
fact that the auditorium balcony was not completed, the play would have been
given earlier in the year.
ln the past, the sophomore plays have dealt almost entirely with romance
and comedy, but this first play of the year introduced real character develop-
ment and proved that a student audience can appreciate a serious dramatic por-
trayal. Perhaps the character that appealed most to the students was Stacia,
played by Bethel Ahrendes, This poor "Work-house child" was appealing in
her candidness. But Bethel was only one of a cast that showed ability to act.

"A PLAY WITHIN A PLAY"
CFz'rst Prize Storyj
. 1 ' HERE were only one hundred and three students and twelve teachers,
! l, ' m " ' but the noise, the din, the commotion, the excitement that they
created in the ringing halls of Manton High School was quite out
is '-'t of proportion to their number. For the first time in the memory of
the 'fold timers," the little city of Manton was going to select, stage, and wit-
ness a drama of its own. Not this year would the citizens have to go to San
Francisco to see "No, No, Nanettef' 'iThe Student Prince," or 'iWhite Cargo."
Not now would they have to go to Stockton to view such road-show offerings
as "Lightnin' " and 'iThe Best People." To their own high school auditorium
they would come in their comfortable Fords, and see real drama. Can you
wonder that lVlanton was excited, thrilled?
And who was responsible for this new culture? Why, the senior class, of
course. Senior classes are always blamed and praised for everything. And this
senior class was like every other one: for the eleven girls led, and the seven boys
followed. The girls' enthusiasm spread among the entire student body, and
for two days even the study teacher ignored the notes and the guiltily whispered
conversations. The freshmen were incessantly talking about the play: the
sophomores were daringly placing bets as to who would be the hero and
heroine, and the juniors were already speculating over the senior play of 1927,
At last, even the masculine seniors were Hlled with fervor and zeal, and turned
out for the tryouts to a man. In perfect accord, the whole class worked dili-
gently and earnestly. ln six weeks, the cast had been chosen, and many sopho-
mores rejoiced in the selection of Mary Kearns and Bill Gordon for the leading
parts. Yes, the seniors could not ask for more. Nothing marred their happi-
ness. The "Evening Star" gave daily reports of their progress, and everything
Then suddenly, in the third week of practice, a dreadful thing happened.
Frenzy and terror seized the class and the coach, Miss Doe. Joe Browning
positively could not actf He could not feel his part. Imagination was a
minus quantity in his make-up. Great disappointment was manifest, for he
and his mongrel dog with the long silken ears and the short curly tail were
a pair by which Manton swore. Since the time they had chased the tramp
out of the Jenks' hay-loft, the two had succeeded in everything they had
attempted. What should the seniors do if Joe could not take part? The
hero was upset: the heroine wept and plead. Compared to this sea of trouble,
the Slough of Despond was a mere rain puddle. The fear of ridicule as well
as the dread of general disappointment made the class wild with terror.
True, Joe had only a minor part, but that part was the major minor part.
He was the chauffeur who discovered the corpse of his '4pal" at midnight in
the second act. His thirteen words were the climax of the play. He must be
in the play. With sinking hearts the cast and Miss Doe convened. What sor-
P zgff Thirty-four
row, what disappointment! Nothing could be done. Five senior boys had
parts, and the sixth boy stuttered. All they could see was black despair, and
Mary suggested wild alternatives desperately. One by one the minutes passed,
but no salvation was visible. At six o'clock the meeting disbanded, and all
agreed to keep their sorrow to themselves.
The next night everyone, including Joe himself, attempted to make him act.
i'Now," said Miss Doe, "you come in. You turn the lights on. You see
a limp body. You yell, 'Heavens, he's dead! Where is the foul fiend who
perpetrated this vile deed?' Then you rush out. Now try it."
"All right," answered Joe. He walked onto the darkened stage. Suddenly,
the lights Iiashed out, and, in his surprise, he yelled. "HeavensT"
'iGood," cried Miss Doe, "go on."
Joe went on, but in the deadly monotone which had marred the other
practices. Over and over again he said the lines, but with no improvement.
Again and again he tried, but with the same maddening lack of success. The
seniors remained true to their pledge and told no one of their trouble, but the
suspense was beginning to wear on them. They outdid themselves in their own
parts, but not a thing could they do with Joe's.
Then one day, a week before the performance, Miss Doe walked into the
Manton General Merchandise Store to buy some make-up. Of course, old Mr.
Bung wanted first-hand information and asked, i'Wall, how's our dramy comin'
"Very well," answered Miss Doe, wishing she felt the confidence that shone
in the store-keeper's eyes.
"Thar goes a lad that'd be a credit to any playf' continued Mr. Bung, and
he pointed to Joe and his dog, who were walking past the window. UThem
two are to be depended on. What one don't do, the other does."
i'Yes," responded Miss Doe noncommittally, as she gathered up her packages
and hurried out. She gave one look at the disappearing boy and dog, and
then hurried into the store again. 'iMay I have two large paper bags?" she
asked the puzzled Mr. Bung.
The next night at the practice, Joe gave his little speech in the second act.
'iHeavens, he's dead," he said in an even tone. Then he asked in a most un-
concerned voice, "Where is the foul fiend who perpetrated this vile deed?"
After his lines, he and the rest of the cast waited for Miss Doe to ask him
to repeat his part. Instead, the coach asked in apparent surprise, "Why do you
all stop? Continue."
The players could not understand what had happened. Had Miss Doe
given up hope of making a strong climax? But when they heard her tell the
principal that the play was going to be as dramatic as "What Price Glory," they
were still more puzzled. They began to dread the night of the performance,
but Miss Doe seemed more buoyant than she had been for weeks.
At last the big night arrived. Sisters, brothers, cousins, aunts, uncles,
parents, grandparents, friends, end enemies came. Programs rattled, dresses
rustled, babies cried. Proud mothers told how their children had worked for
Page Thi: ty jf
the play. Proud fathers tried to look unconcerned. Only the players, who
peeped anxiously from behind the curtain, had any doubts as to success.
Then the lights went down. People straightened up in their seats, and
the babies momentarily hushed their crying. The curtain rose and fell on the
l'Didn't the Jenks' boy do well?"
Such were the enthusiastic comments.
Expectantly the audience watched the curtain go up again. Breathlesssly
it awaited the climax. Nearer and nearer came the acme of suspense. Then
the stage darkened, and Joe tremblingly walked on. The audience leaned for-
ward. Joe shivered and took short gasping breaths. Then a sharp popping
above him drew his attention, and, hanging from the rafters, too high to be
seen by the audience, loomed a dim figure with long silken ears. .Ioe trembled,
but this time with fury, and, as the lights flashed out, he yelled:
' "My god, he's killed! I'll get the guy that did this!"
Amid the thunderous applause, he rushed out, straight into the hot kisses
and affectionate paws of his waiting mongrel.
"lVlr. Bung was right," declared Miss Doe afterwards. "What .Ioe couldn't
do, his dog did."
IVhere Fancy Is Bred
"I wonder, where is fancy bred?"
Some ancient bard once musing said.
Is it in my heart or head
That I enjoy my fancies?
His problem is my problem too:
The same I think applies to you.
If you will listen carefully
I will tell you what I see:
The poet says the heart doth play
In problems of this kind:
The cynic sniifs aside with scorn
Declaring it's the mind:
The preacher says it is the soul:
I with them all agree,
Heart, soul and mind, to fancy lend-
She's the product of all three.

First Prize Poem
A tapestry our whole life is
Of colors rich and rare,
But we alone must weave the threads
That make it bright and fair.
Grey threads of thought our background make,
And dreary toil of blue.
A streak of gold is added for
The joyful things we do.
God grant that we may Weave it,
Both honestly and true,
That joyfully we'll View it
As we pull the last stitch through.

Second Prize Poem
The bronze-gold sun, the heaven spreads
With her awakening splendor:
She garbs the trees in golds and reds
With fingers slim and tender.
The aspen quivers at her smilesg
Quivers with silver passiong
The cypress greets her cunning wiles
In a haughty, icy fashion.
The grasses, laughing in the wind,
Turn yellow as they greet her.
I hear the cricket's cheery note
And songs of birds, far sweeter.
I know that she I love the best
Of all the seasons greets me.
She dons her glowing dress for meg
With outstretched arms she meets me.

' PooTBALL PoRE-woRD
'Qi , HE greatest season of all" is no exaggeration in describing the 1925
wif, i' football record of Stockton High. Beginning the year with an
Qlklllllli llllugfg almost green team, Coaches McKay and Zaepfel, backiield coach
,P from Washington State College, whipped their men into a well
organized team that finished the season in a blaze of glory by defeating Lodi
High for the first time in four years.
The Tarzan gridders engaged in
ten games, one more than in the year
previous, and were victorious in
seven. The Blues scored a total of
l'52 points to their opponents' 78, a
remarkable record for any football
The Blues tied Lodi for first place
with four wins and one loss, and
would have gone into the semi-finals
but for some misunderstanding be-
tween the two schools. Since this
league was scheduled on a percentage
basis, the two schools were tied.
Since Stockton defeated Lodi, the
Blues felt that they should have been
given the preference to continue in the
- light for the football championship, -
but Lodi wanted another game. To this the local school authorities would not
consent, and both schools agreed to put away their moleskins for another year.

TARZANS, 34: PRESTON, 12
The Blues opened up the 1925 football season on September 19 with a
walk away from the Preston Reform School. The game was a field day for
Stockton and Preston could not stop the end runs of Mitchell Oliver. Preston
had one little colored quarter-back that was the whole team for the visitors.
"Husky" CWallaceJ Higby broke his shoulder in this game, and was out
for almost the whole season.
TARZANS, O: ALUMNI, 7
For three years the Alumni had been trying to put over a win on the first
team, and this year, led by "Nanook" Souza, the former grads realized their
hopes. The Blues did not show the same Hght as in the week previous and
were outplayed at all times by the Alumni, who were in the pink of condition.

The visitors did not have a chance with our warriors, and it was a matter
not of who was going to win, but of how many touchdowns the Tarzans

TARZANS, 7: SACRAMEN1c, -
The lVlcKayans opened up the C. l. E. schedule by beating t - Governors'
7 to 0, the third licking in as many years. The score does not indicate L..-
diHference between the two teams, as Stockton had some tough breaks that cost R.
them at least two touchdowns. The famous pass, Bowen to Bush, that had
turned other games toward the Blue favor, won this game in the last quarter.
TARzANs, 7, TURLOCK, 6
With Turlock leading. 6 to 0, the Tarzans rallied in the second quarter,
and a pass, Bowen to Bush, scored a touchdown. Brombergs educated toe
lifted the ball between the posts and gave the Blues a 7 to 6 victory. This
was a hard-fought game, and Turlock lost because they could not convert their
extra point. Jackson was the individual star for the visitors.
TARZANS. O: WooDLAND, 13
Every team has its off day, and the Tarzans had theirs when they jour-
neyed to Woodland to lose by the score of 13 to 0. The McKay men seemed
helpless against the Wolves, and could not get started. This game changed
the team's attitude, and they fought harder in the next two games to come out
victorious. NOVEMBER 11
TARZANS, 13: MoDEsTo, 6
The Blues went into this game with a desire to win, and they outfought
and outsmartcd the Panthers, returning victors by the score of l3 to 6. The
Modesto coach pulled his team off the field in the last part of the game because
of a controversy, and the Tarzans were awarded the game by the score of l to 0.
This was any team's game until the Blues opened up toward the end of the
game. Dohrman played a whale of a defensive game.
The whole Lodi team witnessed this game to get some 'fpointersm on the
Tarzans style of play. NOVEMBER 28
TARZANS, 19: LoD1, 13
Eor three straight years Stockton had taken defeats from Lodi, but this
year, with a green team, the Blues demonstrated to the 7,000 spectators
jamming Pacific Stadium that they had the "stuff in them," and when the
smoke had cleared, Stockton High was on top with a splendid 19 to l3 victory.
It was a great game, and the best team won. Every Blue and White player
co-operated and did his best. The result was Stockton Highs first victory over
Lodi. Bush and McCoy, the Tarzan ends, played their greatest game on this
day, and they did more to break up Lodi's plays than any other two men on
the field. Each man scored a touchdown, McCoy on a fumble, and Bush on
a forward pass from the old reliable "Ham" Bowen. Captain Dietrich was in
every play and stopped the Lodians in their tracks.

the line could use all his teaching, so what he needed was an assistant who
could specialize on the backfleld. John Zaepfel, former quarter-back star at
Washington State College, was the man for that job, and he taught the back-
Held men plenty about their part of the game. Through his efforts, a smooth

The Little Tarzans, coached by Laurance Pease and Ernest George, former
star, were not far behind their big brothers when it came to winning games.
Although they did not win the league championship this year, some good men
were developed, men that will make a strong bid for varsity positions next fall.
The Little Tarzans lost only one league game, and that was to Sutter Creek, the
team that won the championship. Out of eight games played, the "midgets"
scored 68 points to their Opponents' 56.
LITTLE TARZANS, 12: TRACY, O
The Blues opened up their season with a 12 to O victory over the Tracy

The Little Tarzans did not have a chance in this game, the Mountaineers

the whole show for the second team.
LITTLE TARZANS, 13: LODI, O
To show the natives that they could still be classed as a good team, the
Midgets went out and cleaned up on Lodi's second team by a score of 13 to 0.
Jack Rowe starred in this game for the Little Blues.
The second team is organized chieHy to develop first-string men, and this
year quite a number of men looked "good" for varsity competition next fall.
Scott, Garrigan, Chun. Markem, Higby, Dander, Hubbard and others were of
this class, and will have good chances for a varsity berth next fall.

VERY girl in some sport" might well be the motto of the Girls'
ffl ', !lAthletic Association of Stockton High School, newly organized in
.S QQ the fall of 1925. Four nights out of a week a different sport has
been participated in, a program which has enabled every girl to
find some line of sport in which she was interested. This year has marked a
new era in girls' athletics for S. H. S. The girls have been roused to interest
by the varied program and the untiring enthusiasm of the physical education
directors, Mrs. Agnes May, Miss Frances Sheltman, and Miss Grace Bliss.
After the first few weeks, the schedule for the after-school sports was an-
nounced and carried out as follows: swimming classes, Wednesday and Mon-
day: basketball, Tuesday: horseback riding, Monday and Wednesday, tennis,
Tuesday and Thursday: crew, Thursday. Later on bicycling was taken up
on Wednesday evening. The plan was to have the after-school sports ar-
ranged not on a strictly seasonal basis, but as far as possible to carry all sports
throughout the entire year, with a different activity for each evening. One of
the most important changes made in the physical education curriculum was
that no girl was to be allowed to take A'gym" immediately after her lunch
hour. After the program was well under way, the participants in the dif-
ferent sports met on separate nights, organized into clubs, and elected managers,

THE G. A. A.
net.. Association was quickly formed by the electing of
cneer leaders. Those elected were: president, Camille Pike: vice-
dent, Edna Rose: secretary, Thelma Weule. Only those girls who took
part in some after-school sport were able to belong to this association. In
addition to providing a varied and well balanced program of wholesome activ-
ities, the G. A. A. made a positive contribution to the entire school by the
election of a girl cheer leader. Helen Wilcox was chosen for this position,
with Betty Hackett and Norma Gagnon as her assistants at the games. The
executive committee also met and drew'up the constitution, which was voted
upon and accepted. The fourth Thursday of every month at advisory period
was the time decided upon for the monthly meetings of the G. A. A.
In addition to the many beautiful school songs, the girls adopted their own
hymn. This song was composed by Mrs. May and is sung to the tune of
"America the Beautiful." The words are as follows:
On Galifornia's sunny shore
We're craftsmen, one and all.
Our tools-an arrow, bat, and oar,
Golf club and basketball.
With minds alert and bodies strong,
Good sportsmen, thru' and thru'
We're building nobler womanhood,
America, for you.
Some of the of the S. H. S. girls prefer horseback riding to riding in an
automobile. Opportunity was given last term for this activity to be forwarded.
Under the leadership of Frances Falconbury, the girls went out every Monday
and Wednesday. A class for beginners was also held at a very small price a
Thelma Weule heads the swimming club as manager. Although the boys
think that they are really the owners of the tank, they have had to give it up
twice a week to the feminine swimmers. An advanced and a beginners class
were held separately, and next-year plans are being made for an intermediate
class. A swimming meet was held at the close of the season, in which many
of the girls took part.
Bicycling was taken up later in the season by a number of the girls, headed
by Dorothy Evans. Although they would not commit themselves by making
a definite statement as to where they went and what they did, it is reported
that they had just "loads" of fun.
Puig f Forfvy-nigh!
The best results were obtained from basketball, as this activity received the
best and most enthusiastic support. Four different teams were organized wiff
a captain, name, and colors, Thelma Weule was elected captain of "The Pervlgm
Nine," with purple and yellow as their colors. White was the color chosen
by "The White Streaks," with Hannah Gartner for captain. Jean Rule as the
captain of A'The Scarlet Runners" chose red as their color. These teams played
off a series of games on Tuesday evenings. An interclass contest was also held.
Tennis, one of the most popular sports, took up most of the time of some
of the girls. The Oak Park courts were reserved three times a week, and the
school courts on the other two nights. This arrangement made it possible for
one hundred and twenty-five girls to have regular practice once a week. Oppor-
tunity was also given to beginners to learn how to play, and the tennis club
hopes to make good its boast that by next June every girl in Stockton High
School will be playing tennis. Loretta Wriston was chosen as tennis manager.
A number of trips have been made by the girls' crew under Helen Wilcox
as manager. Although many of the girls were new at this sport. it has been
reported that they have made great progress and are ready for harder work.
Archery is not one of the after-school sports, but is taken up by those girls
unable to take active gymnasium work. It is hoped that by next year there
will be more equipment, so that more girls may participate in this interesting

F22-firfslllf nrst '1linX" held by the Girls' Athletic Association was prof
fllimTlif'Qll H nounced a Hjolly good time" by those who attended it. The "Ajinx"
might well have been called a Christmas party. as it was held just
NM' before the holidays on December lO, l9Z5. Approximately two
hundred girls attended and were arrayed in costumes ranging from that of a
bathing beauty to one of a grand old-fashioned dame of long ago. The guests
all came masked and remained so until after the Grand March.
Helen Wilcox took the part of master of ceremonies, and announced the
program of dancing, stunts, and comical songs. Refreshments of cider, dough-
- nuts, and candy canes were served cafeteria fashion. Dancing was enjoyed after
the refreshments, and the party closed in a whirl of serpentine and confetti.
The success of the affair was due to the co-operation of Mrs. May and the
association oflicers: president, Camille Pike: vice-president, Edna Rose: secre-
tary, Thelma Weule: and song leader, Helen Wilcox.
