One lovelier than beauty, Rarer than rapture, muted as a sigh, Timid as spray that flees from falling water, Hushed as the moon that dreams along the sky. She can be startled by a tired petal, Drifting in perfume to its lovely sleep, She, will draw back if snowflakes clash in falling, Or stately tides turn, chanting, to the deep. All quiet things find sanctuary with her: Night, and the clouds, the cedar's ancient hush, Lost lakes that sleep forgotten in the moonlight, Hilltops that hoard the sunset's fading flush. Silence her name is, and the limpid cadence Echoes the chiming music of her eyes, Silence whose touch is comforting as shadow, Silence whose look is starry as the skies. When she is near, rapt memories come floating Like silver moths across a summer dusk, While down the wind there stirs a far off fragrance Of mignonette and rosemary and musk. Only with her will you hear longfstilled voices, Tender with love and crowning with sweet praise, Or catch the rolling drums that beat to dutyg Through anguished nights or dull dauntless days. Only with her there moves that sister shadow, Friendly, yet strange, familiar, yet unknown, Whose eyes you seek in troubled contemplation, Till, faltering, you know them for your own. So keep I watch for her, my best companion, Where, on the roads of time, she, wanders by, Timid as spray that flees from falling water, Hushed as the moon that dreams along the sky.

L ' lPrincipal's Message After four years of attendance at high school what are you taking away with you? Of course, you have some knowledge about a variety of subjects. Most of that is important. If that is all, however, you have missed your opportunities. Unless you have learned in the class room and on the campus that the biggest things are gained through cofoperation, you will have that lesson to learn later. Other people count. If you continually try to get all you can for yourself without regard for the rights of others, you may win iinancial success, though that is doubtful, but you can not secure happiness. Let what you do it in with the work of others that your combined efforts may secure success for all. V In .

FACULTY reached for the morning paper four years ago, a screaming headline, or, rather, a line of screaming heads, 509 of them, announced the coming of orphans to Stockton High. And now F the adopted "Class of '27" has grown and gone. For it was none other f A than this famous group that Mr. and Mrs. Faculty so kindly took in. The befriended waifs responded to the care and supervised study given them by the elders' of the household, nor did they quarrel among themselves, but chose as their leaders Mervin Garibotto, president, Georgia Manuel, vicefpresidentg Clara Catherine Hudson, secretaryitreasurerg and Mervyn Littlefield, sergeant at arms. fMervyn Littleneld and his playmates progressed so favorably that when they had been in their new homes but a year, they showed marked and alarming tendencies to cut their teeth on younger and newlyfdiscovered basket babies. They could find in the polished halls no dirt on which to feed, consequently, they resorted to tiny infants.. E H - H Full 'of unexpected developments in character was the second year of their stay. In the first place, they were just at that stage when impertinence shows itself in "back talk", an art which they upheld to the satisfaction of debate fans and the glory of playfgoers. And in their "showing off" before their friends and neighbors they so amused' thecallers that Mr. and Mrs. Faculty began thinking they had adopted a road show, and so planned great things for the promising generation, each visioned picture framed in footlights. True, the youngsters had "acted up" creditably in "The Charm School". V There is no record of a quarrel among the fastfgrowing orphans, but it is known that during this second year' they suddenly chose Elizabeth Blackmun president, J. Henry Smith, as vicefpresident, Helen Thornton as secretaryftreasurer, and Jack Eagal as sergeantfatfarms. And then they were happy again. How the time flew! Here was William McCoy running out to play, and there were the other boys with bloody noses. William once stated, on reaching the age of which we write, that there was no Santa Claus, and that, furthermore, he would just like to see Mr. McKay going up a chimney or down one, either, for that matter. After which'speech he, Bill Chun, Emery Lally, Van Wolf and some of the other boys went' over to pick a quarrel with some Lodi boys. All this doubting of St. Nicholas took place in the third year of life with the Faculty, a year in which the young men and women began to sense responsibilities and to look to the future. As a result they elected, as usual, class leaders. The choices were president, Norris Rebholtzg vicefpresident, Helen Yohnerg secretary' treasurer, Dorothy Ulrici, sergeantfatfarms, Howard Wells. While Wayne Hubbard was president, "Three Wise Fools" and "A Full Housev' immortalized the family name to playfgoers, and Dorothy Ulrici brought honor to the house in speaking. Some morning next September Mr. and Mrs. Faculty will find more astonishing news on the doorstep, more orphans, but none can 611 the place of the departed "Class of '27." They have left home. .7 we 5 'L -1,-pf-'il ',,l'viL,f A Nineteen Wayne Hubbard Academic Senior class president '27g boys' student control '26"27g end on football team '26g block "S" in football '26.

TT., lvl il .l rlllll .l,L..t.-' Post Graduate History Twentyfseven Stockton High School graduates returned this year to continue their studies. High records in scholarship mark the students in this group, with Miles Groom, Alice Langille, Harold Winder, and George Price leading. La Vergne White, the scintillating star of "The Three Wise Fools," and Lola Belluof mini, who played the role of Myra Thornhill in L'Seven Keys to Baldpatef' senior play of '26, were leaders in dramatics. George Dohrmann was prominent in school activities, especially athletics. Harry McKee is well known as the tenth ranking junior tennis player in the United States. The 12-:B Seniors Indications are that next midyear graduating class will be one of the most outstanding that Stockton High has ever known. In its ranks are students, def haters, actors, and athletes, who have already won recognition in school life. Mary Louise Leistner has always been very active in the Scholarship Society, has won honors in debating, and took part in "The Passing of the Third Floor Back." Frances Fogerty, a member of the public speaking class, also excels in debating. Miss Lillian Williams' adviser section of 12fB boys won the adviser basketball league championship this year. Ambrose Garrigan represented this adviser and the class on the varsity basketball team. Clark Briggs, yell leader, is also of this class, Richard Dickenson may be expected to lead the Honor Scholarship list some time next year. lil f Thirty-seven junior History SUALLY when a bunch of freshmen enter the portals of our "great hall li 1' scenery The class of 1928 was different When they entered the whole ,r five hundred and forty two of them marched up to the registrars oiiice 'F41f'4 deposited their grammar school diplomas, and decided to become seniors some day. Today four hundred and thirtyfthree are still trying. Soon after this illustrious group had embellished the student body with its lov' able personality, it took on the form of a government with George Crane as presif dent, Charlotte Kelly, vicefpresidentg George Sievers, secretaryftreasurerg and Elf wood Rietz, sergeantfatfarms. of learning" they hide in the corners until they become used to the lil W Ai, ' . ' 3 f ' 5 , Four provisionals later, the class was still here and had reached the enviable position known about school as "sophomores". However the new 'Lsophs" were not proud. They realized that after all they were just people and as apt to make mistakes as seniors were. So they held a council, the outcome of which was some new guiding hands. The new ofiicers were Ernest Rowe, president, Laurienne McLeish, vicefpresidentg Jeanette Foster, secretaryftreasurerg and Richard Parsons, sergeantfatfarms. Not content with being merely sophomores, the members of this most interest' ing class astounded the immediate universe with two gems of drama, "The Goose Hangs High" and "The Passing of Third Floor Back". Every time anyone men' tioned actors or plays, the talk immediately switched to the two favorite topics of that year-the sophomore plays. In that year honor was also won for the class on the tennis court by Thomas Hackett, with the junior singles and junior doubles championships of San Joaquin County. As juniors these ambitious scholars continued working toward the position of senior class and are now looking forward to the fulfillment of their ambition. Next year they hope to show Stockton High School that there never was a class as glorious as the class of 1928. IIA boys 1 -3 1, A, Thirty-eight Top. IIA girls: center. IIB boys: bottom, IIB girls Thirty-nine Sophomore History SWARM of freshmen colonized in the main office, from which it quickly FF! spread to every part of the campus. Algebra and history were smeared in books and on chair rounds in an effort to eradicate the buzzing pests, but they thrived and asked for more. This was natural, for these freshmen of 'nfqb were none other than those who just established a record in the name of "the sophomore class of originality", especially original concerning plays. By way of introduction to this individual class, its iirstfyear oflicers were Jack Hancock, president, Violet Van Pelt, vicefpresident, Merle De Camp, secretary' treasurer, and Joe Wells, sergeantfatfarms. It may have been luck that immuned these freshmen from such fatalities as are occasioned by algebntis, gymnitus, and other such possible infections of the imagination, but it was merit alone, the merit of a. famous class that gave it promif nence on the calendar of yearly events. Not unlikely is credit due to the oiiiciating members of the class in its sophof more year, who answered to the names and titles of Andrew Boscoe, president, Normal Hammett, vicefpresident, Alvin Crow, secretaryftreasurer, and Kermit Com' stock, sergeantfatfarms. But the chief reasons for success are without doubt the players who represented their class on the stage, as well as their coach, Iviiss Ida C. Green. A large crowd was attracted to the season's stage novelty, three onefact plays, "Neighbors", "Maker of Dreams", and "Tickless Time". Is was a venture, this program of three short plays, and ventures call for adventurers. The play managers, players, and coach proved themselves to be the adventurers called for. When, on the night of January 28, a big and curious audience swelled into the auditorium to view the much discussed ply, the success of all connected with the production was time's only prophecy, and when the audience had seen and approved the work, time's prophecy had come true. The sophomores had succeeded. They are the experimenters, therefore the doers, and as such they are as vital to Stockton High School as the spirit of adventure was to them. 10A boys 1 I F arty Top.

When this first crop had grown to the extent 55,1 91: I l 1 of not looking like a carload of unripe pears, 17 5 reinforcements removed "f"'f"i" all traces of winter. This class didn't think much of the taunts of the Fill sophomores, so they didn't even try to amalgamate for protection. Mr. Berringer and Miss Mclnnes impressed them with the fact that high school is a place to build up the future. Evangelist John Brown informed them that brick' I-,,.3! layers make twentyffive dollars a day, whereupon they put two and two together, L,,.i,QLJ got twentyffive, and decided that if a future was to be built, future bricklayers would do the building. WEN? Basketball went to the dogs when, in January, the fresh young ladies won the girls' athletic association basketball championship. Onlookers described the game as a flash of green, a buzz as of many insects, and finally, a freshman girl running across the floor with the ball under one arm and the senior girls' basket under the other. my When "Tacky Day" came along, the rest of the school tried to look funny, but the frosh showed them all up by looking natural.

Executive Committee and Student Controls HE most vital influence in any community is a representative government "of the people, for the people, and by the people." Student government is an instrument of true democracy in that it instructs the students, as well as the individual who attains an oflice, in the responsibility and the service due to society. The student management of the school has rendered a good account of itself for this year, in both finances and discipline. The Executive Committee has, to date, refusedno- -money' to any school organization or group of students, and has kept the school free of debt. At times it has been necessary to skimp and cut down ex' penses, but always within reason. Some years the school has more money than others, and this year has not offered the usual financial opportunities. However, enough money was left from last year's profit on basketball and football to bring some really worth while entertainments to the school, such as the Stefansson, Andrews,'and Sarett programs. The Executive Committee has encouraged and sponsored all major and minor sports and activities, and has helped in the prof duction of plays by its ready cofoperation. In Stockton High School another branch of the government is called the "Stuf dent Control," in which a group of boys and girls, meeting separately, determine the minor faults and punishments for their companions. This year there has been steady andsplendid cofoperation between the student controls and the students. In fact, there has been practically an elimination of hard feelings between the controls and the students. Sometimes in the choice of a member there may be an unfortunate selection, and a student officer may use his position as a means of retaliation for a real or fancied wrong. Perhaps, again, a member shows "more energy than diplomacy." The Student Control of 192647 has shown unusual vision, tact, and efficiency, and its individual members have been unusually free from petty, personal prejudices thatlwould hamper or destroy constructive policies. rg? ,751 f, in . .Q I F o rty-eight GIRLS' STUDENT CONTROL Top, left to right: Marion Littlefield, chairman: Harriet Roberts, Elainc Prcwett, Mary Louise Peters, Marion Washington, Audrey Glover, Myrtle Conwell, Ruple Quigley, Georgia Manuel, Mary Louise Leistncr.

Under the able management 5 Q of Camille Pike, president, Virginia Hall, vicefpresident, and Marjorie Scott, secretaryftreasurer, this organization was able to accomplish a great deal. In the first part of the year, the girls voted to withdraw from the central division and join the bay division of the Associated Girls. Accordingly Stockton sent her two delegates, Mary Louise Leistner and Mary Garvin Hammond, to the district convention at Piedmont. During the year several interesting and instructive speeches were given at meet' ings. Miss Linda Goodsell, who formerly lived in Turkey, spoke on "The Youth of Turkey." The members of the association were also very fortunate in having Mrs. A. P. Harrison of Escalon, once an active worker in the big sister organization of New York City, address them on "The Big Sister Movement". This talk was especially appropriate since Stockton High has just adopted this worthfwhile plan. Another charming speaker was Mrs. Loren P. Jones, a member of the evangelist, John Brown's party, her topic was "The Ideal Girl". Both freshmen receptions this year served to make the incoming girls better acquainted with their older sisters and the traditions of the school. The humorous acts of the fall program and the presentation of the operetta, "Lady Frances", in the spring, were very entertaining. The committees, whose cofoperation with the officers and with the school made success inevitable, included teachers and students who are vitally interested in their work. The Social Service Committee enlarged and grew into an active club. The committees were: Entertainment-Mrs. Agnes D.

It is hoped that by remodeling the hall much greater use of it may be had than in the past. The Honor Scholarship Society, as the originator of the idea, drafted a set of resolutions asking for this improvement, which were 1 later adopted by all student organizations in the school. These resolutions were presented to the Board of Education in March by a committee from the society, and it is hoped that, through the efforts of these students, the board will cause the assembly hall' to be remodeled during the summer. When this article went to press, however, the board had taken no definite action on the request of the Twentyfsix certificates were awarded in February to those who had maintained membership in the society for four consecutive quarters, beginning September, Breaking all previous records, James Barr, post graduate, scored twentyffive points for the first quarter's work. Thomas Oshidari, also a post graduate, earned twentyfone points and led the list for the second quarter. Never before has there been offered a wider field for earning activity points than there has been this year. Student coaching, monitor service, library and laboratory assistance, student body coaches, student control committees, debating, athletics, participation in school plays, and oratorical contests have been the means While the scholarship society has been serving the local school it has also been of service to the California Scholarship Federation, of which it is Chapter 41. Thelma Doty created for a novitiate pin, a design which took first place and was recommended for the future pin at the Spring Convention in Fresno, on April 9. Moreover, the phrase, "Scholarship for Service", which was used as the theme for the convention here in 1926, has been adopted as the ofiicial motto of the '77Tf'i5fti411'JlC7'i:'Q'Ilfvif' 'PC'3l'- L li Q lil!

One was in thc afternoon before the student body and thc othcr, given in thc evening, concluded Music Week. Music Q.-659 N THE EVENING of May 8 the music department of Stockton High School brought Music Week to a melodious close, at the same time pracf tically retiring from the year's activities. The band, orchestra, and choral classes combined on this night to make a program at once representative " of the school's talent and evidence of the expert instruction lent by Miss Genevieve Burcham, Mr. Frank Thornton Smith, and Mr. Andrew C. Blossom. The year has been a full one for all branches of the music department. Music has livened rallies and assemblies, graced conventions and enriched many other prof grams-all to the credit of those of Stockton High who teach and those who study the art. One can best know the extent of work done by this department if he folf lows the calendar across the terms. Miss Burcham has always been ready with a choir for any occasiong nor has Mr. Smith ever lacked for a safe margin of vocal talent, whenever a program required it. As for Mr. Blossom-well, the band and orchestra speak for themselves and for Mr. Blossom also. Advanced instruction in music appreciation, harmony, choral work, band and orchestra have enabled the music department to school students in music not only "as she is spoke", but also as it is written. The classes have been able to fill a great number of engagements at banquets and other places where music was wanted. Fifty-two Teachers' Institute found the band, orchestra, and chorus ready to entertain. Three big programs were given on November 22, 25, and 24. The big prefChristmas program was given on December 15, when all the music in the school was "trotted out". Soon after, a women's banquet at Hotel Stockton found it needed music and found the music it needed at Stockton High. A high school student chorus helped in the production of the "Messiah" by the College of the Pacihc, a fact that shows the conndence the college has in the training and material in our own auditorium. Indeed, Will C. Wood, former state superinf tendent of public instruction, has said that Stockton High School's music department ranks with any to be found in California. In the spring came Rotarians into our harbor, taking the city in the name of cogs and wheels, and asking for music. Frank Wallace, Elsom Paddock, Claude Ward, and Walter Eisenhart were the music, and everybody stayed till the last note had been sung. Stockton High has usually boasted of a male quartet, but none have been so well matched as this year's. This quartet has not been the only musical group appearing under the blue and white, for a brass quartet, jazz band, and several choruses have lately sprung into being. Honors were brought home when four S. H. S. students returned in April from Sacramento with positions on the state symphony orchestra assured them. One hundred and ten high schools competed in this contest. Yes, it was a full year for the music department, a year during which the students: and teachers brought notice wherever and whenever they appeared, notice which brought glory and honor to Stockton High School.

Tully Knoles was elected consulfmaior fpresidentj at this time, Dorothy Ulrici, consul minor fvicefpresidentjg Clarke Briggs, scriba et quaestor profectus secretaryftreasurerjg Robert Houston, lictor fSergeantfatfarmsJg and Austin Coggin, cantor fsong leaderj. Hallowe'en was celebrated on November 4. Although the Romans had no ceref monial corresponding to our Hallowe'en, explained the chairman, they did have such features as haunted houses. An event taking place in a haunted house was therefore enacted. Descriptions of a Roman funeral and beliefs concerning the dead were also given. Other programs included several playlets, a speech by Dean Fred Farley of the College of the Pacific on words, pictures of Vesuvius, Pompeii, and Capri, a talk by Mr. Ralph C. Hofmeister on his European trip, and musical numbers. The annual Latin Club picnic was held at Jenny Lind on May 6. "Movies" of Paris, showing the sculptured bridges and buildings, beautiful parks, the boulevards at carnival time, fountains, drives, lakes, and the flying buttresses and gargoyles of Notre Dame, formed one of the most interesting of the programs of the French Club. The history of "The Marseillaisen given by Miss Gladys Lukes was a feature of the meeting of February 18. "Moraine de Guerren fWar Godmotherj was presented by the sophomore and junior classes on April 21. Piano solos, piano' logues, and skits were features of other meetings.

German Play A bomb of laughing gas in the form of a play, 'LEiner musz Heiratenf' or in plain English, "One Must Marry," was thrown into the student body by the Gere man students at their annual program on May 24. There is no German club, but the practice of giving a program originated last year when German was intro' duced for the Hrst time since the World War. This year's play upheld the standard set last year. The play concerned two brothers, one of whom had to marry. They drew lots, and the wrong one got married, even after all this trouble. George Dohrman, John Hawkes, Bertha Kroeck, and Jean Turner were the stars who twisted German adjectives of endearment around to the enjoyment of the audience. Jack Sherman and Ernest Rowe repeated their 1926 success with poems and songs in German dialect. Joe Merchasin caused the final split in the sides of the audience by giving Mark Twain's Fourth of July oration, which is half English and half German. Latin Club .V V F ifty-.six rr, .i,Guarcl and Taclilffi Q ll-li:Y Club ' Q -x HE SENIOR HIfY CLUB was more prominent in school and civic activities this year, perhaps, than ever before in its history. Professors from the 57 Us College of Pacific and business and professional men spoke at meetings of the club. Acting as host to six hundred and eightyftwo boys and leaders 3 at the Older Boys' Conference of Northern California, held in the Civic Auditorium on January 21, 22, and 23 was perhaps the most important activity of the club this year. The theme of the conference was "Adventures in Living," Cameron Beck of the New York Stock Exchange being the principal speaker. Others were Mrs. James Wallace of Los Angeles, J. P. Haugerman of Fresno, Fred M. Hansen of San Francisco, and Dr. Tully C. Knoles of the College of Pacific. The annual HifY plays, presented in early March, were "The Mayor and the Manicure" and "Sweet and Twenty." The proceeds from these plays were about 35100, half of which went to the club and half to the school. Rev. C. A. Snyder, pastor of the First Christian Church of Modesto, was the principal speaker at the HifY reunion, held on the Hotel Wolf roof garden on October 29. The annual football banquet was held on December 16, Dr. G. A. Werner of the College of Pacific speaking on "First down, ten yards to go." A board of directors was chosen from the HifY Club to secure entries for the First Annual Boys' Hobby Fair held on May 6 and 7. The club's basketball team, with Carrel Weaver as captain, had a very success' ful year, defeating all their opponents. Two new features of the club this year were the orchestra and quartet. The former played at many school rallies, meetings, socials, and at California Night, as well as at one of the luncheon meetings of the Rotary Convention. Virl Swan, cornetist, led the orchestra. Officers for the last term were Clarke Briggs, president, Wesley Dunlay, vicef' president, Laurence Foster, treasurer, Carl Page, secretary, and Eugene Root, ser' geantfatfarms. First term officers were J. Henry Smith, president, Elsom Paddock, vice president, Carrel Weaver, secretary, Don Williamson, treasurer. junior HifY officers for the last term were William Davidson, president, Harold Houser, vice president, Malcolm White, secretary, and Bob Arthur, treasurer.

As a large number of the students of Stockton High School are interested in some kind of science, four science clubs have been organized. The Radio Club, the Agriculture Club, and ' ' the Boys' Science Club have all been zh' formed during this year. The Girls' progress than the others. Science Club has been organized for two years and consequently has made more The Philophysean Club, or Girls' Science Club, is composed of girls who have taken or are now taking biology, physiology, chemistry, or physics. The club has a large membership, the largest of any of the science clubs. The club's chief activities have been to provide interesting programs at the meetings, which are held every two weeks. The programs consisted of speeches by either a student or faculty members and musical selections. Miss Emma Hawkins, Mr. Sanford Sweet, Mr. J. C. Corbett, and Mr. Hilmar Weber gave lectures on various scientific sub' jects from which the girls gained valuable information. The club members are this year proudly wearing attractive pins bearing a Greek symbol suggestive of the name of the organization. This year's oilicers were Dorothy Ulrici, presidentg Harriet Heckart, vicefpresidentg Betty Baker, secretaryftreasurer. Miss Myrtle Olsen was faculty adviser. The Boys' Science Club, reforganized this year, has been very active in stimuf lating interest in science. The members are those who have taken or are now tak' ing some of the science courses offered at Stockton High School. There are twentyffive boys now in the club, and as the membership is limited to thirty, there is room for only five more members. The club meets the second and fourth Thursdays of each month. The scientists went up to the snow line at Big Trees on February sixth. Twelve boys, accompanied by two of the members' fathers, Agriculture Club fl 'X Q 1 f 1 . 1 .P 'f 7' x V- fl-, fd .. , - A I ' iv. . J Fifly-eight Philophyscan Club made up the adventure seekers' party. At a meeting held in November, Mr. J. C. Corbett gave an instructive talk on astronomy. At some of the other meetings, experiments and talks were given by the members and by teachers. Alwyn Briones was president, Wesley Dunlap, vicefpresident, and George Mc' Can, secretary for the first semester. The officers for the second half were Wesley Dunlap, president, George Brown Hammond, vicefpresidentg and John Hawks, secretary. The Stockton Ameteur Radio Association, or Stockton High School Radio Club, was organized this year. This "association" was formed to foster radio activity among the boys of the school. The club was started by Mr. J. C. Corbett last fall, and now has ten members who are vitally interested in the subject. Before a student can join this group, he must be well equipped with information on radio. The regular meetings are held once a month and code practice is conducted every Thursday at 3:05. The oiiicers are Laurie Willette, presidentg Talcot Mather, Boys' Science Club Fifty-nine V f C Guard agncl Tackle, ll Radio Club vicefpresidentg Wallace Ward, secretaryftreasurer, and Robert Jones, sergeant' at' arms. The other members of the club are Stiles Martin, James Robertson, Donald Stanford, Vernon Hatch, Everett McCartney, and Donald Klump. Mr. J. C. Corbett is the faculty adviser. The Agriculture Club held its first meeting since its reforganization on April twentyfninth. This club was very active last year, but as it was not organized un' til very late this year, little progress has been made. At the first meeting, Mr. Hubert Spangenburg talked on horticulture. He explained the use of sprays and many other points that would be helpful to the agriculture students. Mr. J. M. Lewis was faculty adviser and organizer of the club. Probably before the year is completed this organization will have made greater strides than it did last year. With four scientific organizations in the school, the students of Stockton High School have gained much knowledge through the clubs as well as becoming better acquainted with each other. 4 ff lil? . S Li' t y ' QP -'.,iQG1lRTd T.g1'flTHClil'Q'iV, Press Club ,NL n m EWSPAPER work is, perhaps, one of the most delightful kinds of work if you like it," was the information given to the future foreign corresf pondents and editors composing the Press Club by Dave Englund of the Stockton Record on November 16. Other valuable bits of advice r'k"' L and words of warning were given by the speaker, whose subject was "The Practical Side of Journalism". Previously the club members had been given advice to follow if they should venture into professional journalism. On December 7 they had their present faults and virtues pointed out to them by Miss Ovena Larson and Mr. Wesley G. Young. The "makefup", variety of stories, and literary column were features of the weekly "Guard and Tackle" which were praised. Discussion of the annual versus a quarterly magazine featured another meeting. Miss Lucy E. Osborn, former teacher of news writing, presented the arguments given by proponents of both plans. In the discussion which followed, the senti- ment seemed to favor the annual. The annual banquet was held in the high school cafeteria January 25. Josef phine Williams, of the Stockton Record, was the speaker of the evening. She told some of her interesting experiences in work on newspapers. Other speakers were Betty Cofhn and Virgil Belew, former editors, Clinton McCombs, former manager, Jeaniice McCall, Tully Knoles, Josephine Wixson, Charles Livingston, Miss Lucy E. Osborn, and Miss Turner. Dwight Humphreys was toastmaster. . Silver Rapids was the Mecca on April 30 for the annual picnic. Swimming, baseball, hiking, and eating were pastimes of those who attended. Forty members visit-ed the Record plant on May 11. Officers for the first semester were Harry Hoffman, president, Josephine Wixf son, vicefpresidentg Dwight Humphreys, secretaryftreasurer. Those for the second semester were Josephine Wixson, presidentg Curtis Hizer, vicefpresidentg Joe Ca' purro, secretaryftreasurer.

One of these cl All clubs is the United States History Club, which is limited to the junior and senior students who have studied United States history and civics. Its numbers are further limited by the requirement that all members must have recommendations, either through their grades or from their teachers. For this reason the group is select, consisting only of those students who are vitally in- terested in the proceedings. For the most part, the meetings are devoted to dis' cussions of present day problems and their relationship to those of the past. Well' informed speakers are invited to address the members on different current topics. 'B Though this organization has held but three meetings, the club is confident that its good work will continue under the influence of its purpose. A constitution was adopted during the second meeting. At the third the subject, "Man and His Labor," was discussed with interest. Emmet Kearns, president, was largely responsible for the organization of the club. The other officers are Tully Knoles, vicefpresidentg and Dorothy Ulrici, secretaryftreasurer. Peter Walline Knoles, of the history department, is faculty adviser. l I 4 1 l r Q ji l .l, A 1. at -1" ,u -w .'. 1.0 se l, Q55 A 1 N - I EA g, VJ-sw J r' l927 li fl 4'-S2 f W -af-gf'-' v Sixty-two Qgiaixl and Tackle, r - The Pan-Pacific History Club INALLY the freshmen and sophomores have been given the opportunity to be the exclusive members of an important organization. That or' ganization is the newly organized PanfPacific History Club. Since the meetings of this club are limited to the study of countries bordering the Pacific, and since this corresponds to the work taken by the lower class' men, it was thought best to include only the freshmen and sophomores in its membership. Then, too, in conducting meetings themselves, the members will get training for their future roles as leaders of the school and as citizens of the country. as -Q: N The farfreaching principle underlying the work of this organization is the promotion of a better understanding among the countries of the Pacific. Ref cently college professors and instructors of seminar courses have realized the need of bonds of understanding among these nations, in order to avoid the serious troubles which often arise. Mr. W. G. Young, head of the history department, thought that by organizing a club of young students who are interested in the Pacific countries, some good, though small and seemingly unimportant, might be accomplished toward this great end. The programs, held twice monthly, include speeches by men of experience, as well as student contributions. The first speaker who addressed the club was Mfr. Ralph S. Raven of the science department whose subject was China, the country in which he had formerly lived. Greenlaw Grupe, president, Chester Klieves, vicefpresidentg Wilbur Krenz, sec' retaryftreasurerg Luis Scio, sergeantfatfarmsg and Wesley G. Young, faculty spon- sorg were the ollicers for the past semester. Qfiozvj up 'guy W W, 4 v Sixty-three .Guard and Taclilep Commercial Club Q, HE Commercial Club became one of the most prominent clubs in the school this year when it sponsored the production of "The Youngest", presented before a large audience in the auditorium on March 26. Har' old Ferguson, as Richard Winslow, Elaine Prewett, as Miss Nancy Blake, :IPT G and Lorraine Mann, as "Muff" Winslow, all took leading roles, while the minor characters were played by Milton Foster, Curtis Clark, Mildred Hawf kins, Abraham Cody, Pauline Arata, and Catherine Domingas. George Parsons entertained by singing several solo numbers between the acts. The success of a play is largely determined by the coaching and general direction. Miss Blythe Malinowsky, major student in dramatics at the College of Pacific, coached "The Youngest" and did much to make the play the success that it was. Juniors and seniors only are granted membership in the Commercial Club, but a movement was started this year to form a lower auxiliary granting freshmen and sophomores of the commercial department membership in an organization sponsored by the club. The auxiliary has not yet been formed. George Finkbohner, prominent Stockton banker, spoke before the club at one of itsemeetings. He gave a short outline of the history of banks, showing how the banking system has improved in recent years. He urged the students to practice thrift. Besides Mr. Finkbohner's address, several talks were given by other prominent Stockton business men during the year. The Commercial Club voted unanimously to support the social hall project, sponsored by the Honor Scholarship Society. The officers of the club for the first semester were Richard White, president, Milton Foster, vicefpresidentg Josephine Hull, secretaryftreasurerg Leslie Gray, ser' geantfatfarms. For the second semester they were Milton Foster, president, Elaine Prewett, vicefpresidentg Naomi Libhart, secretaryftreasurerg Alex Wilson, sergeant' atfarms.

H f members. 2' Q IL! f El lu'-... -' l' x ,- 4' age. I sg r A The club not only has assumed the responsibilities of the two committees, but it has also undertaken other and new obligations of importance to the high school and community. The twentyffive members devote their time to the general work of bringing aid and happiness to the needy. This program includes entertaining at the Day Nursery every Thursday, sewing for the Associated Charities, visiting the Public Health Center, and helping the Red Cross and the county hospital. Another phase of the club's work is the study and investigation of the causes of poverty and the means for relief of the poor. The social side of life as well as its duties is emphasized. An interesting feature of the organization is its name. It was called the Social Service Club until a better name was secured. The club is named for a former teacher in Stockton High School, Mrs. Mary Minta, who established the Girls' Association and the Junior Red Cross here. She was also responsible for having a rest room installed and a matron engaged. Through her efforts this school ranked very high in its service to the country during the war. Meetings are held the third Thursday each month. Mrs. C. M. Jackson of the American Red Cross and Miss Helen Hartley of the San Joaquin Health Center have spoken at meetings. Nlarjorie Scott, chairman, and Doris Horr, secretary, are the officers of the club. l x VY 'VV -1 5-,gr '.'-, . i if f V.

The club meets every Friday during the 10:35 period to learn from Mr. Bond, faculty adviser, about hygiene and safety in printing. The constitution, drawn up by a committee with Lloyd-Snyder as chairman, was printed in booklet form in the high school print shop and distributed among the members of the organif Zation. Ten cents dues are paid by the members at each meeting, the money being used to finance picnics and trips that are of value to the boys. A trip was made through the Stockton Record plant in order to give the boys a better knowledge of the way large newspapers are published. Another trip taken was to the Barnes Linotyping Company to see how experienced linotypers run the machines. When a call was sent out for money to help the flood sufferers, the boys of the club readily responded by giving five dollars and fifty cents to the cause. The study of "Johnsons First Aid Manual" occupied many of the club meet' ings. Mr. Bond instructed the members on artificial respiration, how to restore a person who is suffering from an electric shock, and the prevention of accidents. A picnic was held during the early spring, and a trip to Sacramento was planned for the latter part of the semester. Ofiicers of the club for the last semester were Louis Rivara, president, john Warnke, vicefpresidentg Andrew Stetz, secretary, Walter Cady, treasurer. Sixty-six junior Red Cross 'Va UMPING JACKS, Christmas trees, tiddledyfwinks, and candy, these are ,I A . . . . some of the things that went to the children of forty poor families at Q its Christmas time from the junior Red Cross. Besides these there were all kinds of goodies in the form of canned goods and meat. Each adviser section was responsible for a family, and, from the reports given, these sections prepared unusually attractive as well as useful boxes. Besides the boxes to local poor families forty small cardboard cartons were filled with toys and books for children in Guam. These children attend the public schools in Guam, but do not have the advantages that boys and girls have in America. Several letters of thanks came from them, in which they said that the Stockton boxes were very attractive and were as welcome and as greatly appreciated as they had been in past years. The National Junior Red Cross, of which Stock' ton High School's organization is a member, has adopted Guam as the particular place to which it gives as much help as possible. Instead of sending candy made by the domestic science department to the Wliipple Barracks' tubercular ward, as has been done in previous years, this Christ' mas the Junior Red Cross sent 'fifty dollars that would have been spent for inf gredients used in making candy, to the ward so that the sick soldiers could get what they wanted. From the letters received by the local chapter it seems that the men prefer this method of Christmas cheer to that of former years. Each chap' ter of the Junior Red Cross has sent contributions several times this year to a hospital or some similar institution. The United States Home for Disabled Sol' diers at Whipple Barracks, Arizona, regularly receives gifts from Stockton. Marian Dodge acted as chairman of the chapter this year, and Elizabeth Black- I1'1llI'1 was secretary. Unwelcome Upon the impulse of a trembling heart I heard your footsteps stir beyond the door, And I, awaiting, thought I heard you start Gladly, anxiously across the floor. But why you came not, I shall never know, Nor why I, sorrowfladen, left your steps, Nor shall I ask you if you watched me go, Or if you felt the same embittered depths.

Six high schools took part in the contest, with Modesto winning nrst place and Escalon second. The following day Caroline Diffenderfer and Paul Hub' bard were sent to the University of California to represent Stockton High in the Shakespearean Contest. Although neither of the contestants received first place, Paul was chosen to participate in the Hnals. On the twentieth the faculty enjoyed a boat picnic, and there was vacation for one day on the thirtieth, Memorial Day. Graduation activities were the main events in June.

This was the fourth convention of the or- -? ganization, sponsored by the Stanford chapter of Sigma Delta Chi to further interest in high school journalism throughout the state, and for the fourth time Stockton won honors. Stockton's delegates were Miss Turner, faculty advisor, Joe Capurro, Dwight Humphreys, Elsom Paddock, Ruth Utt, and jose- phine Wixson. The University of California chapter of Sigma Delta Chi sponsored a conven- tion of editors and managers of high school publications at Berkeley on April 7 and 8. jeanice McCall, J. Henry Smith and Josephine Wixsoii represented Stock- ton at this convention. " Several special editions of the paper were features of the year. On September 29 a "Forensic Edition" was issued. In this were emphasized the approaching ex- temporaneous contest and the debating schedule. A green Christmas tree loaded with gifts on the front page and a red hour glass on the fourth page decorated the Christmas edition. Interviews with Santa Claus and Father Time enlivened the reading matter, while the more serious side of Christmas was emphasized in the editorial entitled "Giving Brings Happiness," and the promise of the new year in "A Better Year for S. H. S." "Cub Nosings," written and edited by the news writing class, was issued on February 2. Jeanice McCall was the editor and Tully Knoles the associate editor, the remaining positions on the staff being held by other members of the news writing class. On April 8, instead of the traditional "Tack," a Tacky Day edition entitled "Garb All Tacky" was the contribution of the staff and the print shop to the general merriment. "Fake" and humorous stories, headlines formed of letters of different sizes, and both 'Lheadsn and stories turned upside-down and sidewise at intervals were the features of this issue. Besides the special editions, numerous cuts and feature stories relieved the rou- tine material in the Weekly newspapers. An innovation of this year was the literary column. Previously, literary materials had been printed at various intervals, but this year a literary column containing the best work done by students in English classes was published weekly. Although the chief work onthe paper is done by staff members, much work devolves upon the students in the news writing class. As soon as they have gained a knowledge of the fundamentalsfof writing, they are assigned "runs" consisting of teachers and officials from whom they are to obtain news items. As the term progresses they gradually take over more and more of the work of the staff, their activity culminating in the publication of their "Cub edition." Most of the staff of a semester is gleaned from the news writing class of the preceding semester. F . ,1927 , 8 I A .

In the fields of scholar' JT7 ship, athletics, journalism, public speaking, and dramatics Stockton High has continued, as in years past, to win new laurels for herself. To record ,-J'-'af those achievements, as well as the activities which make up student life on year's book. the campus, has been one of the chief aims of the editor and staff in preparing this In carrying out the theme of this Annual, a recognition of the beauty of the campus, many new features such as the eightfpage section of tinted photographs, sketches of the oaks and the glades, and the special photographic sections of life on the campus have been included in the book. The heavy blue and silver cover is in keeping with the colors of the school. Other features are tinted borders drawn by members of the art class, an unusual athletic department, and more photographs, perhaps, than have appeared in previous Annuals. The articles in the book reflect careful work by the staff, and the poems contributed by the students are of a very high order. If the material on these pages does not mean more to the student than a mere record of the attainments of his school during the year 1927, or does not convey to him a deeper significance than the expenditure of a certain sum of money, the publication of this Annual has not been worth while. If in reading these pages or in viewing these photographs, the student finds a new meaning of the spirit of Stockton High, this book has served its real purpose. This Guard and Tackle Annual is a sincere tribute to the campus, the school, and student activities during the year 1927. May the owner of the book cherish it, that in the years to come his life at Stockton High may ever remain sweet in his memory. Dwight Humphreys, Editor. -I Q.

Winifred Iliff 1927 I 'l ackle a N'- Ilramatics Faculty Play L K EFCRE AN AUDIENCE of almost 2000 people, the largest to attend a high school production during the past season, the faculty presented a threefact comedy, "White Collars", on April seventh, for the benefit of the Stockton Community Chest fund. Although this is the first year that Gat ed? the teachers have competed with the students in the field of dramatics, judging from the success of this play, the faculty production will become a yearly tradition. "White Collars" is an unusually clever play, and the audience agreed that its production rivaled almost anything seen on the professional stage. All the parts in the play were given so well that there were few outstanding characters. Perhaps the rnost difficult part was the character role of "Cousin Henry", portrayed by Mr. Claude Van Patten. Mr. Walline Knoles and Miss Bernadine Ungersma, as the young married couple, won applause by their acting. Mr. W. Fred Ellis as Mr. Thayer, the kindly, yet poor father, and Mrs. Agnes D. May, as his wife, were also very good. Unusually clever and lively were the lines and actions of Miss Grace Bliss, as Helen Thayer, Joan's flapper sister. Mr. Peyton Kerr as Frank Thayer, Miss Ida C. Green as Sally Van Luyn, and Mr. Fred F. Solomon as Tom Gibney, who complete the cast, all enacted their parts with ability and ease. As hardly two weeks were spent in preparation of this play, its success was a distinct triumph for the faculty. February Senior Play A good play artistically presented, both in regard to acting and scenery, was "Three Wise Fools", an achievement of the February graduating class under the direction of Mr. Claude A. Van Patten. Given on the evening of December 17, the play provided its audience with a special feature in the way of studied lighting effects. Lights and shadows were used to advantage in the scenes, deep lines being accented and pale faces made paler still. Thus, the arrangement of lights was such as would do credit to the professional stage, and showed that the electrician not only studied his problem in cofoperation with the play coach, but also that he profited by his application. Harold Waggoner well deserved his part as La Vergne White's stage lover, while a very different character, 'LBenny the Duck," was given equally well by Harold Tarter. Indeed, Harold Tarter made such a perfect yegg that one was inclined to dislike him forever after.

Alwyn Briones was good in the role of Sidney's father, and La Vergne White as Sidney, the heroine, was prominent throughout the play. The character role went with one of the "three wise fools," which old gentleman was represented in the person of Robert Youngblood. His acting stood apart from that of any other player, for his stage person was just a little more eccentric and unusual than that of anyone else. The two other "wise fools" were Ralph Nagle and George Dohrmang Thelma Doty, the housekeeper, Richard White, Masaru Kiwada and Charles Livingston, the servants, and Allison Pope and George Woodruff, detective and assistant, completed the cast. The play concerned three wise, foolish old men and the girl, Sidney, whom, by some freak of the law, they inherited. There were complications and tense situations to offset the plentiful humor. ' Senior Play HE FINAL dramatic production of the year was "A Full House", given by Q-T ED the senior class on April 29. Each of the fourteen members of the cast interpreted his lines well and played his part with smoothness and finish. I ll , Much comedy was furnished by Marion Littlefield, as an ignorant house' maid whose ambition was to return to Sioux City. Fine stage presence was displayed by J. Henry Smith, a lawyer newly married to a charming wife, played by Virginia Hall. Norris Rebholtz ably portrayed the character of a young man madly in love but in great difficulty because of a former infatuation.

Herbert Clough, as the crook, was quite acrobatic, jumping from place to place in a lightning manner in order to evade detection. A chorus girl "vamp" was well portrayed by Rolyne Belluomini. "You can get in, but you can't get out," was the stock expression of joe Merchasin, police' man. Other characters, who all played their parts with much care, were Jean Tully, Dorothy Ulrici, Harriett Smith, Talcot Mather, George McCann, and Emery Cameron. The ability of the coach, Walline Knoles, was shown in the success of the play. He selected the characters carefully and held many rehearsals so as to perfect every detail. Sophomore Plays ,eg LWAYS NOTED for the originality which characterized former dramatic productions, the oral expression classes went further than ever this year in presenting, instead of the usual threefact play, three onefact plays. Under the direction of Miss Ida C. Green, the three plays, "Tickless Time", "Neighbors", and "The Maker of Dreams", were given on January 28, before a large audience. The first of the three, "Tickless Time", was a semifhumor- ous story of a young married couple who attempted to live with only a sunfdial to keep time, to the utter disgust of their cook, their neighbor and their guests. The cast included Robert Houston as the husband, Sylvia Miller as the wife, Ernest Simard and Jeanne McCollum as two guests, and Jean Turner as the cook. "The Maker of 'gDreams" was a delightful fantasy featuring William Morris and Marion Farrell as Pierrot and Pierretteg Betty Hackett, as the dream girl, danced her way into the hearts of the audience, and Arthur McCarty gave a clever interpretaf tion of "The Maker of Dreams." "Neighbors" had an old fashioned kitchen as its setting. A group of gossipy women, the "neighbors", tried to change each other's lazy habits to aid a needy child and a pair of youthful lovers. jack Hancock, as Peter, the lover, scored the biggest hit of the evening. The rest of the cast were Neville Thompson as grandma, Naomi Woodruff as Mis' Abel, Ralph Smith as Ezra Williams, Ruth Folsom as Inez, Maria Rohrer as Mis' Moran, Elsa Rossi as Mis' Trot, and Ida Evans as Mis' Elsworth. jack Coffman was business manager of the plays, and Clyde Taylor had charge of the stage direction. ffl'g'llfj'-Phlfl A 5 , l Sophomore plays: above, "The Maker of Dreamsng center.

Iiiglzlylfllrm Eighty-four Night The night is clear and vast and high, And all the twinkling orbs of light Glimmer in and out of sight Like countless candles in the sky, Ancient and wise. I wonder why, Though mortals live and die and light, Those sentinels keep their calm height, And on our foolish pastimes spy. I know they're God's allfseeing eyes Like Argusls in days of old, That watch o'er mortals from the skies, They are not distant, calm, and cold. Fear not the dark, those stars so white Are but guardians of the night. Joseph de Cristafero The Wind I If I were the wind in springtime, I would whisper the flowers a song, "Wake up! Wake up! my pretty things Deck the fields as we wander along. If I were the wind in summer, I would breathe a perfume rare, That I'd gather from the flowers, As I'd linger here and there. If I were the wind in autumn, I would play with the flying leaves Of red and gold, and wonderful brown As they left the motherftrees. If I were the wind in winter, I would howl, and moan, and roar, For I'd have no playmates then at all, I'd be lonely and cold once more. Mildred Gardner ll hl' S li- , UBLIC SPEAKING in its various forms, extemporaneous speaking, oratory, and debating, this year has been one of the foremost activities of the school. During the Hrst semester those students with leanings toward oratory prepared for the extemporaneous contest. This year Stocktoxfs - representative, Dorothy Ulrici, speaking on "Amy Lowell, the Artist" won first place in this contest. The Shakespearean and Oratorical contests furnished the big motive for work in the second semester. Caroline Diffenderfer and Paul Hubbard were chosen to enter the Shakespearean contest held May 16 at Berkeley, and Dorothy Ulrici was chosen to compete in the Oratorical contest held May 13 in Stockton. Several debates were held this year, the subjects including college entrance requirements, the Swingfjohnson bill, and extrafterritorial rights in China. A postfleague debate was held with San Jose on May 27 on the subject, "Resolved, That the allied debts should be cancelled." Although S. H. S. was not very sue' cessful in all her debates, winning only eight out of a possible eighteen judges' de' cisions, several new speakers were developed who will furnish the veterans for next year's team. First place in the sophomore debating league was won by the S. H. S. sophof more teams. Out of twelve judges' decisions in the two dual debates of the year, nine were in favor of the Stockton teams. The debates wre on the subjects, "Resolved, That the metric system of weights and measures be adopted with pro' per legislation" and "Resolved, That Russia should be recognized." The sopho' more debaters not only represent the school in their own realm, but they also furnish experienced material for the future varsity debate teams. The outstanding speakers of the school are members of the National Forensic League, a national organization the purpose of which is to promote debating, ora' tory, and extemporaneous speaking in high schools. This society was originally sponsored by Pi Kappa Delta, national honorary forensic society, but has now be' come selffsustaining. Students who have participated in a winning debate or won first place in an extemporaneous or oratorical contest are eligible to this society. Carl Page is president of the local chapter, number 83, and Frances Fogerty is secretary. Other members are Mary Louise Leistner, Clarke Briggs, Marie Rohrer, james Robertson., Dorothy Ulrici, and Evelyn Patterson. The nuclei of the oratorical work were the debating and public speaking classes. Vv'hile some of the experienced debaters were not members of the debating class, several inexperienced members of the class made the teams. All the participants in the oratorical and extemporaneous tryfouts were members of the public speak- ing class. Besides these activities, the class made speeches for the Red Cross, the Jean Gros Marionettes, and California Night. Eighty-five Extemporaneous Contest cm 9 OROTHY ULRICI, senior, honor student, and public speaker, achieved a 'Lfirst time" when she captured the honors for herself and Stockton High School at the annual extemporaneous contest of the Central California Public Speaking League, held January 26 in Manteca. It was the first time that a girl had won first place, and the second time that a girl won a gold medal pin. Lucy Ritter of Stockton was the first girl to win a pin when she spoke for Stockton High School last year. Prepared for the contest with expert coaching from Miss Lucy E. Osborn and with her own gift of speech, Dorothy delivered an address on the poet Amy Lowell, entitled, "Amy Lowell, the Artist". The perfection of the speech bore out the words of Miss Osborn, who said, "She knew her subject through and through." She divided artists into three groups, of the tongue, of the brush, and of the pen, characterizing the last as the most versatile and important. After naming Amy Lowell as the "outstanding literary artist of today," she spoke a very lyric of praise for the poet, crediting her with having given more "to introducing new forms and to utilizing old forms of verse than any other American poet." Dorothy separated the writings of Amy Lowell into four styles, free verse, imagism, polyphonic prose, and conventional verse, and discussed each one. The speech was forceful and artistic-artistic because Dorothy handled it in a manner which emphasized simplicity, excluding the superfluous and dwelling on the im' pressive. Oratorical Contest "Searchlights of Modern Poetry" was the subject of Dorothy Ulrici's oration on which she won honorable mention in the annual oratorical contest of the Central California Public Speaking League held May 13 in the school auditorium. Walter Thompson of Modesto won first place with his oration, "The Sword of Damoclesn. Second place was given to Paul Eckholm of Escalon, who spoke on "The Case of Society Against the Juvenile Delinquent". Other speakers and their topics were Helen Lyons of Sacramento, "Sail Westxxfard"g Dorothy Clark of Manteca, k'Russia"g and Harry Nystrom of Turlock, "Social Progress". Telling of the spirit of dissatisfaction prevalent in the hurried life of tofday, Dorothy said, "The ordinary man has no solution for these great problems, but the poet, with his foresight and insight, his divine powers of expression and of turning his searchlight of understanding into the dark void, finds a remedy for every fault he sees in human nature and in human affairs." Although she did not win first or second place, Dorothy acquitted herself with credit. Her subject was not one adapted to oratorical effects, having thought' provoking rather than dramatic qualities. To appreciate it required imagination on the part of the audience to match that of the speaker. A feature of the evening was the presentation of the debating cup. The award signifying Hrst place in the sophomore debating league was given to Stockton. Eiglzty-six Top, left to right: Carl Page, Frances Fogerty, Mary Louise Leistncr, Marie Rohrer, Clarke Briggs, James Robertson, Carrcl Weaver, Evelyn Patterson. Debating In the first debate both local teams were defeated. Carl Page and Richard Tate, affirmative, lost to Modesto by a 3fO decision, and Fresno defeated the negative, Frances Fogerty and James Robertson, 2f1. The question was, "Resolved, That college entrance should be based on fifteen recommendations only." Both teams lost by 2f1 decisions in the debates on December 10. The affirmative, Carl Page and James Robertson, lost to Sacramento, and the negative, Frances Fogerty and Carrel Weaver, to Patterson, on the question, "Resolved, That the Swing' Johnson bill should be adopted." Fortune changed in the third debate on March 11 and both teams emerged victorious. "Resolved, That foreign nations should surrender at once their extra' territorial rights in China" was the subject debated at this time. The affirmative, Mary Louise Leistner and Marie Rohrer, overwhelmed Turlock, 3fO. Clarke Briggs and Evelyn Patterson defeated San Jose Zfl. First place in the league was won by the sophomore debates with nine out of a possible twelve decisions. The subjects debated were, "Resolved, That the metric system of weights and measures be adopted with proper legislation," and "Resolved, That Russia should be recognized." Debaters were Evelyn Patterson, Ed Robertson, Giuditta Rovetta, Irma Davidson, De Witt Page and Earl Renney. Sophomore Debaters Eighly-,rezfen Freshman Receptions D OYALLY were the September freshman girls received on that festive Fri' 4 day afternoon, October 15. Imbecility was the password as one out' landish presentation after another was brought forth to entertain the 4 newcomers. Camille Pike welcomed the guests. After the welcome, dignity "went to the dogs", and the "San Francisco symphony orchestra", a ventriloquist, and many awesome entertainments filled the dizzy minutes with hysteria. The boys' gym may well have been surprised when the Virginia reel wreathed about its floorg the dance itself may have been shocked at some of the very un' dignified manners of dress that did the wreathing. That was a magic lantern eveningg lights were thoughts and thoughts were light, and lights and thoughts were lost, each in the other's gay labyrinth. Yes, and the hours were laughed from weary time when the year again was splendid with reception day. The February freshman girls had yet to taste the bitters of a quarterly report when the folly of longffaced pessimism, life's poor relation, was ridiculed. Beatrice Satterlee and Margaret Rose took care of the refreshments until the freshmen were turned loose then there would not have been any use trying to safeguard even the pinkest piece of cake. The play, "Lady Frances", was not "to be sneezed at", taking it for granted that the guests were adapted to sneezing at plays. Nor were the many other mem' bers of the evening calculated to arouse such fashion of applause as might be expected from only a snuff snuffer. To Rowena W1'ight and Lillian Robinson the girls owed their temporary re- tirement from sanity, for those students had charge of affairs. In general, the freshman receptions were noted for not being noted for dignity, and they were, therefore, successful. There is no prohibition on folly, and fortunf ately, there is no permanent preventive for foolishness. in .n Q ,.'.

Then, while upper classmen raised one of those approving chuckles that bubble over a circus audience when the clown falls off a horse, the freshmen danced-danced like good sports. That was a typical school party, just one of several that have brought Stockton High on the polished floor during the past year. The purpose of these dances has been to bring all the school together for a general "hello." And the purpose has been realized as far as Virl Swan and his ten' piece jazz orchestra are concerned.

Winifred Iliff A111 Ivtirn Foreword LTHOUGH Stockton High School was not so fortunate as to capture an' other state championship in any branch of athletics during the past year, nevertheless the teams made a good record. In basketball, as usual, Coach "Pete" Lenz's team conquered numerous high school quintets. How- k"o"fq', ever, this year the team was eliminated in the quarterly finals of the state championship series. The Blues lost two league contests in football during the season, but it is probable that had they been favored by "Dame Fortune", the ref verse would have happened. Four straight victories in dual meets characterized the success of the local track squad. In the sectional finals the loss of several stars played havoc with the hopes of the blue thin clads. At the time this book went to press the Stockton mermen were enjoying a good season and were ex' pected to garner the sectional title. Tom Hackett, by winning the sectional singles title, brought tennis laurels to the Blues. Football Varsity Although the Stockton Tarzan grid eleven dropped two C. I. F. games during the football campaign, their season can not be regarded as a dismal failureg on the contrary, if the circumstances are considf ered, the grid year can be regarded as highly successful. At the beginning of the season Coach Wallace McKay and Coach Fred Solomon had but two men from the preceding year's eleven from which to def velop a team. The outstanding men were "Bud" MCKW Captain "Ike" McCoy, the stellar end, and Emery Lally, the hard hitting halfback. With these two men Fwd Solomon as a nucleus a powerful aggregation was molded together, which dropped hard fought battles to Lodi and Modesto. The contest should not have been lost to the Modesto Panthers. As it was, the locals dropped the verdict by a single point, 14 to 13. The Tarzans outplayed the Panthers, but luck seemed to favor the Modestans. In the big game of the-season against the Lodi Flames, the Blues were defeated by 9 to 0. The game was played before a crowd of more than SOOO fans at the Grape center, and in a sea of mud. It was a closer game than the score indicates, and the team that got the 'Lbreaks" won. Donadio and Siemering starred for Lodi, while Dander and Lally excelled for the locals. During the season the Blues amassed 148 points to 59 for their adversaries, which is an enviable record.

Both men were placed on all sectional elevens ll' by most of the coaches. McCoy, playing his last year on the Tarzan team, led his Q I men courageously and was a stimulus to the rest of the squad. Hubbard, playing W his irst season on the varsity, improved in every game. Being fleet of foot and ai L J , sure tackler, he was especially fitted for a wing berth. Hubbard showed his worth ' in the Lodi game when he stopped the elusive Donadio after the latter had evaded 1 XV,: the entire team and had galloped 75 yards to within scoring distance. X' The tackles were Woodruff and Calori. Both men played fine ball throughout the entire year and it was seldom that the opposition was able to get through ,fm either of these men. Woodruff, playing his last year for the Blues, was ranked ww by the coaches as one of the best tackles in the league.

Gus Calori was another tough obstacle in the path of the Blues' opponents, as he seldom failed to get his man. Although this was Calori's first year on the varsity he was an outstanding lineman. The Blues were fortunate in possessing so many good guards. Hal Bradley, George Dohrmann, Bob Cahn and Howard Wells were a few of these capable performers. There was little difference in the caliber of the members of this quartet, and it was always a problem for Coach McKay to choose the starting pair. George Dohrmann, the mammoth guard, was a holdover from last year's squad, so he was a hard man to keep out of the limelight. Hal Bradley was an' other husky lad who was a pillar on defense. Cahn and Wells were also good men. The center was well fortified with several stalwart players. Benschoter, Ott and Marken were the pivot men. Bill Benschoter did some nice work for the Blues, although he was kept out of the lineup most of the season with a trick knee. Henry Ott, although small, was a hard man to keep out of the lineup. Ott was a veteran from the preceding campaign's team. Marken, though rather light, was a fighter. ' Halfbacks were also plentiful. Lally, Higby, Garrigan and Beckman were all good men.

Both were so elusive that whenever' they got into the open they were hard indeed: for the opposition to stop. Beckman wa.s kept out by being injured in thelearlier' part of the season. Dander and Hammett were two finQ,fullbacks. ' Dander usually got into the rife' lineup because he had more experience than Hammett. Next season, however, Hammett will no doubt be one of the mast brilliant players on the Blue team, as this year's experience will help him considerably. , Louis De' Martini did good work at the quarterback post.

Out of the nine l games that they played during the year the "Babes" won seven. They were def ffl feated for the championship of the season Quill, by Roseville in their final scheduled game by a close 6fO score. 1 A number of good prospects were brought to light in second team games this REE? year. Among the outstanding men who . ii Laurance Pease showed well were Captain Scott, Deicke, "Pew" Kr-0125 'lj Foley and Folletti. Bob Scott was the leading 'scorer of the team. The above 1 1 men, coupled with Johnson, Houser, Arthur, Roberts, Holman, Wilson, Shirek and Hancock, are expected to be, of great value to the varsity ranks next fall. Other good men were: Mather, Arrington, Jones, Hatz, Sherfey, Dale, Bagley, Davies, Goldsmith and Rule. li The most conspicuous victory of the season was the 12 to 6 L 9 win over the Lodi Flamelets.

B. "Pete" Lenz started the ponderous task of developing a championship team in the dark days of last October, and like magic he wrought a team that made its mark in prep circles by reaching the quarterly finals of the state champion' ship, only to be beaten in this tilt by Marysville by a two' point margin-25f23. Not only was the material at hand crude and untrained, but the local C. I. F. league was rated as one of the strongest in many years. The Lodi Flames, who had downed the Blues in the final league game of the pref ceding season, had a veteran team and were a favorite to de' feat the Tarzans again this year. The Sacramento Senators, who were barely nosed out by the locals in the final game in 1926, were also expected to be a stumbling block for the Tarzans. But all of these obstacles only gave the umagic mentor" a chance to show "Pete" Lenz his genius. Right after the grid season Coach Lenz went to work with determination, and after a couple of months of hard practice he moulded together out of an unlikely looking lot of talent a quintet that was heralded throughout the state as one to be feared. This was no simple task, and it is highly doubtful whether any coach withi- out the ability of Lenz would have produced such a wonderful team. Not once but many times during the season Lenz showed his unusual ability as a basketball coach. In the Tarzan lineup during the first part of the campaign were two stars, "Ike" McCoy and Ambrose Garrigan, who were eligible for C. I. F. competition only until February first. Confronted with the loss of these two important cogs in the peak of the season, the Blues hardly expected to go very far in the race for a state chamf pionship. Lenz, undaunted by this handicap which was only a trifle to him, again showed his ability by rejuvenating the team so that it was nearly as strong as the one developed in the first part of the season.

This was their first game with the Sacramento Purples. It was fortunate for the Blues that they won this tilt, for had they not, Sacramento would probably have won the championship of the league. As it was, the Tarzans won the game by a single point, 25 to 24. After the Blues won this game, they were well nigh unbeatable and were able to sweep through the league schedule with but a single defeat by Lodi. However, this loss can not be taken seriously, as it was sustained when Coach Lenz, for the first time in history, sent the second team against the Lodi Tokay varsity. This proved to be a wise move, for although the locals were defeated, Lenz had an opportunity to see what his varsity of the coming season could do "under ire". The seconds gave the Flames a mighty scare before they were downed by a close 2046 count. After this contest the Tarzans met the first obstacle in their path to the cham' pionship-Patterson. Patterson was the team that eliminated the Blues in the pref ceding season, so the locals were out for revengeg they got it by- an overwhelming 33 to 7 score. Having cleared successfully the first hurdle, the Tarzans next downed an oldftime foe, the Galt "Milkers", in their second championship conflict by a decisive 40 to 19 score. Next were the Lincoln "Railsplitters", and as their axes were not sharp enough, the Lenzmen romped off with an easy 28 to 7 score.

Probably the man that did most was 'LIke" McCoy, the Hery pilot, who led the destiny of the Blues until February. It was the coolfheaded McCoy who was largely responsible for the victories over Sacramento and Lodi. Ambrose Garrigan was a great help to the Tarzans in the early part of the season, until he, too, was lost with McCoy. Garrigan was a consistent scorer and a good floor man. T This victory enabled the locals to clash with the Marysville Orange and Blacks q. if for the title of the northern interior section of the state. In this most heartfbreaking fAu.i"5gf encounter the Blues were defeated and thus eliminated in the last few minutes by a if X two point margin-25 to 23. Stockton was the superior team, but with a seven point Q. "'a Q lead and only a few points to go, failure to stall and to hold the ball back cost the gf: game for the Blues. lg N After the loss of these men Lamar Sidener was named leader, as he was one of the outstanding men on the team. Sidener was a capable player and was a streak of lightning on the floor. It was he who bore the brunt of the offensive attack, as he QTQ was always bringing the ball down the floor and passing to a waiting team mate. Edward "Mutts" Todresic, a veteran, was the most consistent shot on the team, and during the season he scored ninety of the locals' points. Todresic has an uncanny VU eye for the basket, and he seldom missed tries at close range. 32+ i The smallest and lightest man on the team was Wesley "Wee" Scott, the diminuf tive forward. It was a revelation to see this small statured youth perform in such an QS-Qs unusual and experienced manner. Scott had a dead eye for the cage, and in the fi-A championship game against Galt he scored 15 points, as did Todresic also. fiffyli f k Bill Chun was another stellar performer. Chun was a dependable man and a .3 pillar of strength on defense. In this, Chun's final season on the team, though eff handicapped a good portion of the time by injuries, which hampered his playing, he made it a banner one. Q Good form in the championship battles won Stanley "Swank" Dinkel the right to be classed as one of the outstanding men on the squad. Dinkel played the guard my post, filling the shole left by McCoy. He stopped the opposing offensive attack in all the championship games.

In the semiffinal championship game the Tarzan "Bees" journeyed to Auburn to meet the "B" team there. In this contest the locals suffered their only league defeat of the season by a 31 to 24 score. It was only through phenomenal shoot' ing by the mountaineers that the Tarzans were beaten. The long trip to the mountain town affected the Tarzans' playing. The hardest battles that the "Bees" had were furnished by the Sacramento basketeers. The rivalry between the two schools accounted for the hard lighting of these tilts, and it was only by spectacular playing that the Blues were able to win victories. ln their first championship game the Tarzans trounced the Galt "Bees" by the overwhelming count of 31 to S.

Basketball Second Team INNING nine out of twelve games is the remarkable record that this season's second team made under the fine coaching of Carlos Sousa. That most of the games the seconds played were against high school varsity squads makes '41 their record even more impressive. Throughout the season the Tarzan seconds acted as a reservoir to Coach "Pete" Lenz' varsity, so that whenever his first team needed a man, he would secure one from Sousa's outfit. Such men as Foley, Dinkel, Williams, Hammett, and Calori were all sent up from this reserve team. Adviser League The 1927 adviser league basketball championship was won by Miss Lillian Wil' liams' section this season when they defeated Mrs. R. W. Decker's quintet in the titular contest by the close score of 10 to 7. Although Miss Williams' team was not favored to win, by superior playing it was able to take the championship. The members of the winning team were Hoffman, Foppiano, Halstead, Capurro and Brignoli. Those who played for the losers were Dinkel, Foley, Prasher, Mountz, Bernazzani, Comaskey and Delucchi. As there were more than 30 aspirants for the title, it is quite a distinction to win this championship. The bunting now hangs in room 15. Soccer Stockton High made its initial debut in the "great English pastime" this season, and although the team was not entered in any C. I. F. league, it played nearby teams. Under the captaincy of jimmy Luly, the team won from Linden 1fO and also played a scoreless tie with Linden. They defeated Ripon High 3f1. l , - I Second Tcam K 1027 O nc Hu mired' Seven 'wg' A 1 1 ll Ll L Track Victories in four straight dual meets was the remarkable record that Coach jim Cave's trackmen made during the current season. In the C. I. F. finals, however, the Cave' men did not fare so successfully, but this lack was due chiefly to the loss of several good men in midfseason. In the first meet of the season the Blue thinclads, for the first time in history, defeated the Alumni tracksters by the count 83 186 to 62 2f3. The next meet was against the 'Lancient rivals", the Lodi Flames, which the locals managed to extinguish by a 66 1f6 to 55 5f6 score. Coach Mar' quam's Modesto Panthers were the next victims to be clubbed by the Tarzans, 68 1f2 to 53 1f2. Again the Flames and the Blues met and again the Blues triumphed by a 67 to 55' score. After the second Lodi meet, the Blues suffered a mighty loss when Captain Leslie Gray, the outstanding man on the squad, was declared ineligible. Another dependable man who was good for ten points at all times was Emmitt fBudj McCombs, stellar distance man. Harold Bradley, who performed for the first time on the track team, did some wonderful work in the javelin throw. Henry Thurston was the only other Tarzan to reach the state meet. Only four of the Cavemen quali1'ied for the Northern California meet at Chico. These men were Clayberger, Roberts, Thurston and Bradley.

GR SEVERAL years Stockton has been turning out some of the best teams in the state, and this year's swimming team is no exception. When this was written, only two meets had been held. At the early part of the season Brown was stricken with stomach trouble and Matsushima broke W' "ll two bones in his hand, which kept them out of early contests. Instead of one interfclass meet three were held to develop new material. Peters and Busalacchi were two Minds" in these contests. The Tarzans' best record was the victory over the strong Galileo mermen with the score of 5669. The Blues lost their other meet to Berkeley 70f28. The Yellow' jackets are rated by "Pete" Lenz, local coach, as the best in the state. The meet: with Galileo was closer than the score indicates, all the races being closely contested until the two last events. Ted Ohashi captured two first places and swam in the relay. Ward Humphreys coasted 59 feet, his best mark for the season. Frank Smith also featured. The Berkeley water dogs showed too much experience for the Tarzan youngsters, as they practically all belong to the Olympic Club and will be ineligible for G. I. F. competition. On May 20 the Blues captured the sectional meet, making 62 points against Roseville's 33. Lodi and Lincoln were scheduled to swim but did not show up. Brette Brown won the 220 and 100 yard free styles and placed second in the back' stroke. Ted Ohashi, by making 41 11f12 points, won the Ross Pease swimming trophyg Brette Brown was second with 36 11f12. The cup is awarded each year to the swimmer making the most points during the season. Prospects for a banner year in 1928 are unusually bright, as most of this year's team are freshmen and sophomores. Graduation will take t but three men, Matsushima in the sprints, Hubbard in the relay and Humphr s in the plunge.

Harry McKee, star of the team for three seasons, and Ray Clay, last year's captain, left holes which could not be filled in one year, especially as there was a dearth of material from which to draw. The rest of the schools in this section reached their peaks this year just at the time when the Tarzans were beginning at the bottom. Five matches were played against Modesto, the Racqueteers taking the iirst two and the Panthers winning the last three. Sacraf mento and Berkeley beat Stockton in matches which were close enough to go to either team. Piedmont High School sent a strong team to Stockton and was defeated, 4 to 3. Tom Hackett was elected captain of the team and represented Stockton in the C. I. F. tournament, winning the sectional singles championship. While not showing the form of a player of Harry McKee's class, Hackett won from some of the best men in this section. Bob Corbin, who is only a sophomore this year, had a phef nomenal winning streak which carried him through four successive victories. Not being able to play their best tennis at all times, Bill Chun and "Bud" Malloy, the first doubles team, had a rather disappointing season up to the C. I. F., where they reached the Hnals of the central section tournament. Although Cecil Meyer began playing tennis only a year ago, he developed into one of the mainstays on the team. Prospects for next year are good, as Hackett and Corbin will be back and Malloy may return, to form the nucleus of the team. Q' 3 D as W4-M, ........... li w,,z"""' " s A of- .. 'tw A an.

It has sucf 5? 5 ceeded in getting a large number of girls out for sports in the afternoon, I who otherwise would not have taken part in any form of girls' athletics. The Girls' Athletic Association is composed of all girls who regularly take part? one or more afterfschool sports for three months, and those who keep the Health and Training Rules. However, only those who take part in athletics can earn numerals. The letters and numerals are awarded to members of winning teams and to girls who take part in enough outside sports to earn the required number of points. The executive committee of the Girls' Athletic Association is composed of Mary Louise Leistner, president, Katherine Webster, vicefpresidentg Ida Dohrmann,fsecref tary, the manager for each sport, and the song leader, Rowena Wright. The com' mittee meets every other week and has charge of all the girls' after-school sports. .Almost every sport had an interclass contest by the end of the third quarter, and those that did not, planned to hold one during the spring before the close of school. Many of the sports are held during the entire year, but others, such as swimming and canoeing, can take place only in the spring and fall. Indoor basketball, baseball, and volleyball hold full sway when the weather is too cold for the girls to play out of doors. Seventyffive girls took part in basketball this year. The classes were divided into beginners' and advanced sections. The freshmen won the interclass series last fall, with the seniors placing second. Naomi Libhart successfully managed this yea1:'s teams. t .N -I A 1- 1927 it ,. One Hundred Fifteen G. A. A. Executive Committee Archery was the sport for the entire school, but only fifteen girls took part regularly. It was said that although it is a girls' game, several men of the faculty were seen trying to hit the "bull's eye". Wanetta Quayle, the manager, had a hard time keeping some of the boys from usurping this popular girls' sport. Although the freshmen won the basketball series, they came only second in volley ball. The seniors captured the victory after a long, hard contest. Evelyn Waugh, manager, reported that iiftyfsix girls played in the volleyball teams. Helena Warner, manager of basketball this year, succeeded in getting one hun' dred seventyffive out for the teams. The spring interclass series had not been played when this article went to press. Fiftyffive girls, mostly freshmen, could be seen riding bicycles this year. As this is a new afterfschool sport, it is surprising that such a large number participated in it. Walking seems to have been the favorite pastime of many Stockton High School i Winning Senior Volleyball Team One Hundred Sixteen F ..l. Freshman Girls' Championship Basketball Team girls. Two hundred sixteen girls each took from eight to twelve fourfmile hikes this winter. just double that number walked at least a mile a day, or one trip from home to school. Helen Beecher took charge of the horseback riding this year. A large number rode, and many more would have ridden if more horses had been available. The girls rode at the race track, where there were very few horses. Swimming was the favorite girls' sport, if numbers have any significance. Two hundred seventyfiive girls were either in the afterfschool swimming classes or in outside tanks. Miss Frances Sheltman and Miss Grace Bliss, swimming instructors, divided the girls into three groups: beginners, intermediates, and advanced. The groups met separately and were given special coaching. Harriet Smith, the manager of the sport, was also assistant to Miss Sheltman. A meet was held late in the spring. Stockton High School is fortunate in having some of Stockton's best women tennis players as members of its student body. Jean Rule, women's city champion, and Kathryn McKee have taken an active part in the afterfschool tennis. Caroline Diiiienderfer, the manager, reported that two hundred eight girls have been playing. During roller skating season a large number of girls went out for this sport. More than two hundred maids skated as an afterfschool activity to gain points toward a numeral. Canoeing was a favorite last fall as well as this spring when the warm weather began. Each Friday last fall, and Tuesday and Thursday. this spring were High School days at Yosemite Lake. Mrs. Spensly, of the playground department and life guard at the lake, taught the girls the art of canoeing. Orma Whyte managed this sport. Several games were initiated this year for girls who are restricted from more active sports. Deck tennis became quite popular, and girls were seen at every period of the day playing outside or in the gymnasium. Olive White was manager. For girls who wanted practice in putting, clock golf was offered. Many girls in the late spring under the management of Mabel Volz followed this activity. Remarkable progress in girls' athletics has been made since the formation of the G. A. A., and it is hoped that in the coming years more and more can be done to encourage girls to become interested and participate in athletics. 1 'T .L .

He was one of three boys chosen as best in Class A, composed of representatives from the largest schools of the state. Of one hundred and one students entered in all classes, but eighteen were in the final contest. Paul chose lines of Petruchio from the "Taming of the Shew". Caroline Diffenderfer, the other contestant from Stockton, chose the sleep-walking scene of Lady Macbeth from "Macbeth", Although she did not place in the finals, she gave a very fine portrayal. The Wanderer Honorable Mention Under the pines in the wild you sleep With moss to pillow your head, While bundled in blankets of wool I keep, And dream on a feather bed. The burning moon is your mellow lamp, And the lights of a thousand spires, Torches that shoot through the cold and damp And girdle the moon with fires. The hooting owl is your sentinel, And guards by your chamber door The pinefmade halls in the sylvan dell, And the stretches of mossy floor. You live to learn of the wooded glen And the sky where the sun last smiledg While I must dwell in the realms of men 1 Far from the open wild. Inez Macneil. ' Girls' Christmas Jinx, Sponsored by G. A.
