QCMY, MY! How Johnny has grown!" or "Surely this isn't
Mary?" are two comments that cause endless embar-
rassment to che would-be sophisticated high school students.
They wish to appear that they were ever thus . . . all knowing
. . . extremely wise in the ways of men. But when some visitor
returns to Stockton after many years and exclaims with sur-
prise, "Surely this isn't the high school? My, my! How it has
grown," the same students swell with manly pride as they
modestly admit that this is the high school.
Stockton High School has increased its size considerably in
the last few decades. From two rooms on the second floor of
the Washington School, Stockton High School has grown until
it now has a campus of approximately ten acres. "The History
of Stockton High Schoolv is well illustrated by the linoleum
cuts made by the art students.
Galen Potter made the following cuts of the high schoolg
the building in 1885, 1902 and 1929. Georgia Thanos made
the cut of the first grammar schoolg Sophia Thanos made the
cut of the gymnasium, and William Fitch made the cut of the
high school as it was in 1896.

January Class of IQ3I
IN THE FALL of 1930, Stockton High was surprised and delighted to
hear that the first Junior-Senior Prom in many years was to be
given by the January Class of 1931. Needless to say, the Senior Shuffle,
as it was later termed, was a huge success. A very suitable theme-
Prison-was appropriately carried out with prison bars, dungeon room,
poker tables, finger printed programs with a view of Sing Sing on them,
and a rogues' gallery. Some of the Incorrigibles in "Warden', Ellis" art
gallery: "Chicken,' Bacon, "Filthy McNasty" Brown, "Slaughter House"
Sadie, "Pug,' Rice, "Scarface Capone" Miloslavich, "Slicker" Schiffman,
"Brute" Ruse, "Scrammy,' Pease Jr., "Opium', Oren, "Eel,' French,
"Block,' Kizer, "10 Cent,' McPhee, "Worry Wart" Clay, l'Scramface',
Harper, "Hollywood', Stone, and "Stool Pigeon' Busalacchi. A
A prison siren between dances helped remind the imprisoned ones of
the date of their release-and freedom, January 30.
A senior program was presented to raise money for the dance. "Nehi,'
Ng, half-pint mastodon of Stockton High, was master of ceremonies.
1 In spite of all precautions, he put the
audience in the aisles when he got
- tangled up in the curtain. The high
light of the program was an im-

June Class of IQ3I
FOUR years of high school life pass rapidly, to those who have made
achievements of the golden opportunities offered them. Members of
the class of '31 have worked and enjoyed three years of high school activi-
ties. This is their year of glory. Four years ago, there came upon the
campus a group of students, to be known as the Stockton High class of
'31. With lost looks, and weary arms from carrying books, they strug-
gled to find their classrooms. Then they assembled to elect class officers
for the Freshman-Sophomore Oral English Contest. Jack Parsons was
made president, Carl Truex, secretary, and Jimmie Brown, yell leader.
The sophomores were either dumb, or kind hearted, in allowing the
"Greenies" to win the contest.
Next year, the newly enrolled were elevated to Sophisticated Sopho-
mores, and looked down with much disgust on those lowly creatures
called freshmen. But their pride was humbled when they allowed the
low-brows to win the Oral English Contest. They will probably attribute
their defeat to the fact that someone really had to be kind to the fresh-
men. In this year also, a group of Oral Expression students, coached by
Miss Ida C. Green, presented Shakespeare's "Twelfth Nightf' The play,
featuring Avery Kizer, Clare Ellis,
Jacqueline Kappenburg and Stewart
I Cureton, was such a success that it
was presented in Modesto at the an-
nual Shakespearian contest.
Skipping a year, we find our
graduation class as Jolly Juniors. Be-
ing a junior is something to be proud
of. You have two classes looking up
to you, one class to look down on
you, and a discipline committee to
keep an eye on you. On Tacky Day
the juniors walloped the seniors in
the annual tie-up.
Then suddenly, on a bright Sep-
tember morn in 1930, those who had
Q' just passed through a junior year
-i realized that at last there was no one
to look down upon them, that they
had reached the height of high school
education. Nor did they fail to let
- the remainder of the school realize

Mid-year Class of 1932
TO the 12B class the torch has been handed. Now it is theirs to uphold,
for the next semester's activities and problems are to be entrusted
mainly to their leadership. It was only three and an half years ago that
they Hrst entered this institution, and now they are on the threshold of
their last semester. The class is somewhat smaller than the June class,
and opportunities for individual leadership and accomplishment are
perhaps more numerous.
Naturally a lot is expected of the 12B's. They will assume the leader-
ship in school affairs and have the opportunity to make a record for
themselves, so that they will not be forgotten. Their lot is similar to
that of the runner who is on the last stretch. Here is his chance to win
the race, and here he must show all the sterling qualities which make a
successful athlete. Maybe it is his last showing, and it is desirable to rnake
the most of it. Thus the remaining seniors have but one short fall se-
mester during which to live up to their opportunities and make a name

UST three years ago they came, and next year they leave, this class of
1932. Jolly juniors they are, four- hundred and fifty strong. They
no longer belong to the Greenies or Silly Sophs, they have by now realized
that to accomplish four years of high school education, one must do all
assignments that are given in order to gain this hoped for prize. From
this class come hearty wishes of success for the seniors, as they know in
one more year they will embark on the same Life Journey. Their con-
tributions to the various activities of the school have been numerous.
"Oxy', Alustiza, that clashing "all C. I. F." fullback, is a prominent
member of the junior class. "Amos" Lang, elected captain of next year's
football team is another of the junior class members. In 1928, when the
present junior class were freshman youngsters, they won the Freshman-
Sophomore Oratorical contest.
At the 1931 Tacky Day, the juniors almost succeeded in over-power-
ing the seniors in the tug o, war. The first three-minute tug was won
by these sturdy lads, the second tug of the same length was won by the
seniors, and for the last minute of
the contest, although the seniors were
said to win, the title of winner is still dis-
puted by the junior class. After four
years of grooming, the lads and lasses who G. AFAT3

STOCKTON HIGH is fortunate in having seven hundred and thirty-
two bright, young, ambitious sophomores signed on the ledger. A
portion of these students will be known as juniors next semester. They
will leave the well known torch of leadership with the young sophs and
take the brightly burning torch away from the present juniors to Search
in new fields of knowledge. With half their high school days over, it is
for them to make the best of the remaining half. They're practically turn-
ing over a new leaf, the blunders and mistakes they have made are now
forgotten. They will start the second half with renewed ambition, and
make plans for their college careers, taking subjects that will benefit
them most, above all they should get into some activity, whether it
be athletics, journalism, drama, or music. They will no doubt find high
school interesting and not a place where they despise to be.
Twelve sophomores played on the football teams. One of them
was a regular on the varsity, and the rest either played on reserve squads or
on the "Bee" team. They were also repersented on the varsity basket-
ball team. Besides this, they have men on the swimming and track teams.
As for political influence, they do not lag, having a member of their
class on the Executive Committee. The
sophomore class is well represented in all
fields of activity. On becoming juniors
they will no longer be classed with the
ever present scrub, they will be known
as upper classmen and will expect to be
treated as such. 1933 is the year their
ship is scheduled to come in. It will have
as cargo, hundreds of sheepskins for those
who have passed the test. Under the
sheepskins will be a cargo of Irish linen
handkerchiefs for those unfortunates who
didn't quite make it. This ship will also
contain many books for those who care
fl: for further knowledge. These books are
costly, and students must work hard to
get them. After they know these books
from cover to cover, they will receive a
college degree and will be ready for their

THE freshman class in 1930 and ,31 showed marked intelligence over
classes of previous years. They found their rooms without noticeable
difficulty and were not induced to buy elevator tickets at the main office.
However they still retained their grammar school looks and brought a
few of their tricks with them, mainly the art of throwing "spit-ballsf'
Four hundred and twenty-five of these creatures entered in September,
and three hundred and twenty-six entered in February, among them
were athletes, intelligenzia, and plain people. Their only hope at present
is to become sophomores, and the rest, they say is easy. Let's hope they
will raise their ambition when they find out what a mere nothing a
sophomore is. This they will no doubt do, and set their goal as seniors
and nothing less. Once a senior always a senior would be a good by-word
for the freshmen, as we all know that a senior never fails to get his di-
ploma, no matter how long he is a senior.
Freshmen should be boosted by upper classmen, and not booed. We
all were freshmen once and enjoyed the feeling of friendliness given to
us by a few kind-hearted upper classmen. Advanced students should
encourage promising young freshmen to go out for athletics or get into

some school activity. Many a good
freshman has gone unnoticed till he
was a junior or a senior, and then
half his high school career is over,
and it's too late for him to develop
his talent to the fullest extent. High
school affords opportunitv for ev-
eryone's interest. If a student is not
suited for athletics he can get into
iournalism, dramatics, public speak-
ing, music and numerous other acti-
vities. These activities afford amuse-
ment and good training.
When you become sophomores,
don't be one of those that delight in
tormenting the newly entering stu-
dents, no matter how green they
may look. Members of the Honor
Scholarship Society acted as guides to
the incoming freshmen. This service
was well appreciated and may the
freshmen that were fortunate enough
to have this service rendered them

THIS semester's whispering baritone section under the maternal hand
of Miss Emma Hawkins, guardian of P. G. groups for a number
of years, was again the subject of a fact-finding scrutiny. The sec-
tion was literally stripped bare of all unnecessary details and placed un-
der a microscope to be probed at all angles in an effort to obtain the
needed data. The grads' innermost thoughts were searched thoroughly,
and roughly dragged forth for all the world to study and laugh.
The data obtained indicate that the P. G.'s, which stands for Plenty
Good, returned to school for serious purposes. Of the number of grades
received, there were fifty-three Bis, forty-five A's, twenty-nine C's,
thirteen incompletes, Hve D's, and three F's. The Ais and B's totaled
66.2 percent of the whole number of grades received. In the number of
subjects listed by the adviser, there are Hfteen students registered for
two subjects, fourteen, for four, eleven, for three, nine, for five, six
for one, and two, for six. The large number of sixty-eight enrolled for
the second semester later dropped to forty-nine. Of the nineteen
dropped, five failed on account of lack of interest, effort, and good atti-
tude, seven dropped out, giving work as a reason, while seven were un-
accounted for. The rest of the section continued until the end of the
year, attaining their various objectives. If this group is remembered as
having' no other attribute than grandiloquence and risibilistic tenden-
cies, it shall be sufficient, for laughter is the spice of life. e

We stepped aboard a moonbeam boat
And sailed on a silver sea,
Out of the bay, on the moon's highway, -
To the love-light land of Might-Be.
In the glamorous light of a tropical night,
We danced to a melody
Of soft sea breeze in the Whispering trees,
Played just for my love and me.
Dawn woke the skyg we must say goodbye,
The moonbeam boat must be freeg
So We sailed away for ever and aye

AS students leave high school to face the world, it will be well to con-
sider the impression they will make on those they meet. Students
are too apt to neglect the niceties of conduct, the little acts of courtesy,
that are seemingly unimportant but which may affect other people
very decidedly. Men and women will be favorably influenced by
your exercise of good manners, or turned from you by a failure
on your part to perform an act of courtesy at some important
time. You will often be judged as much by your manner as you will
by your skill on the job. Good manners may be more instrumental in
your securing a position than your recommendations from high school,
because you will have to undergo the scrutiny of your prospective em-
ployer, Who will be influenced by your actions as you meet him. Good
manners are more than a surface polish, they often are the true inclica-
tion of a person,s real character.

THE music department of the school produced outstanding perform-
ances this year, the main achievement being A Rapsody of Amer-
ican Music In Six Raps," a pictorial musical history of America from
1620-1931, directed by Frank Thornton Smith. Presented May 28, it
carried out the theme of "Winning the Westi' in the music and costumes
of Indians, Puritans, Spaniards, cowboys and the old South. Settings
were designed and made by students, under direction of Mr. Henry
Green. The Indian scene, with colorful blankets, pottery, and baskets,
Puritans with genuine "blunder-busesv, pioneers with covered Wagon,
and Spaniards with guitars lent realism. The Pre-Easter pageant, given
March 26, differed from the oratorios of previous years. A group of
selected songs were given, with Mrs. Shirley Shaw of Los Angeles as guest
soloist, and Mrs. Eda Carmichael as accompanist. Baritone solos of Sir
John Stainer's, sung by Homer Morrill with chorus accompaniment,
were "Could Ye Not Watch With Me?,', "God So Loved the VC7orld,"
and "The Mystery of the Intercessionf, The Troubadours gave three
Negro spirituals: "An' He Never Said a Mumblin' Word," "Don't You
Weep No More, Mary." "So Sad" was sung by Frank Thornton Smith,
director of the chorus, "Into the Woods My Master Went," by Neven,
and the last number, "The Inflammatus et Accensusf' from ":Stabat
Mater,', by Rossini, were outstanding. White robed figures of the chorus,
Troubadours in blue robes, and orchestra members in blue and white uni-
forms, surrounded by White blossoms, vases, and Wisteria, presented a
beautiful spectacle. The orchestra, under the direction of Miss Virginia
Short, for the first time had their own part in the program, playing

Scene from the Christmas Program
Salvatore Billeci accomplished a great deal with the bands. The first
band played at most of the football and basketball games. Their main
study was sight reading, which helped them to prepare quickly for pro-
grams. The second band was organized to give students opportunity to
cultivate their talent. Consisting of thirty-five members, it plays ad-
vanced pieces such as overtures, serenades, marches, and waltzes. The
third band, of twenty-one students, at first consisted of beginners on the
instrument undertaken, but later they played first class music.
The brass quintet, organized by Mr. Billeci, has been very popular.
The boys assisted in the Christmas program and in the rallies, and played
for outside organizations. The group selects its pieces from classical,
modern, and folk tunes, or special music arranged by Mr. Billeci. An
added attraction this year was the instrumental contest held to create
solo interest, poise, and music ability, in which nine cups were awarded.
The orchestra, under the supervision of Miss Virginia Short, has never
before had so full a schedule as this year. The organization, which has
the largest enrollment in its history, played at the teachers' institute, the
mid-year class day program, and graduation exercises, and at one of che
churches. The band and orchestra concert given on May 7 in the high
school auditorium was the first program that the instrumental depart-
ment has given. Dorothy West was the soloist. The Easter pageant
opened a new road for the orchestra this term, as they were given a
separate part in the program. Later they assisted in the senior play,
"The Perfect Alibiu and the class day graduation exercises. This year
the orchestra has advanced not only in numbers but in quality. Mem-
bers of the orchestra and the band who had recommending grades were

THE weekly Guard and Tackle has had a year showing a great deal
of merit, not only as a whole, but in the accomplishment of indi-
vidual staff members. The destinies of the paper were guided by Avery
Kizer for the first semester and George Capurro for the second, and
their papers compared favorably with those of previous years, having
been rated among the third best group in the country, by Columbia
University. Eight members of the staffs of the weekly and annual, rep-
resented the paper at the fall press convention at Stanford. There the
editorials were awarded All-California Honors, along with "Buds o'
Blue," the school anthology. As the Guard and Tackle had been elected
president the previous year, it was the duty of Avery Kizer to conduct
the business sessions and to act as toastmaster at the banquet. The dele-
gation experienced a delightful time in spite of the rain. Later the
president and faculty adviser were summoned to a committee meeting
at Stanford. Four delegates were sent to the University of California
press convention in April. Classes there proved especially interesting
and the group very much enpoyed the two-day stay.
Eight new members of the Quill and Scroll Society were inducted,
making a total of nine active on the staffs. Ken Endich was elected
president of the society. Results of the Quill and Scroll Creative Wfork
contest closing in 1930 placed Stockton among the fifty best high schools
in the country in that type of work. Three students placed in the na-
tional group contests held by the society. Avery Kizer won first place
in California in the first editorial contest, and fifth place in a head-
writing contest: lane Eicke received honorable mention for a feature
story, and Ken Endich placed third in this state in editorial writing.
The two business managers, Carl Truex and Jack Brewster, and the
editors, Avery Kizer and George Capurro, were invited to mem-
bership in a national journalistic fraternity, Kappa Tau Beta. This
makes the boys charter members of the organization in this school.
Ralphyne Brady was editor of the ,Tanuary cub edition. Ralphyne
continued her iournalistic work, serving as associate editor to George
Capurro, for the spring semester. She was elected editor for tfhe fol-
lowing fall. The second school anthology, "Buds o' Blue," arranged
by Ralphyne Brady and Eleanor Mittenmaier, contained literary ma-
terial gathered about the school, including the essays and stories winning
prizes in the annual contest, and attractive linoleum prints from blocks
designed and cut in Miss Amy Pahl's art classes.

AN interesting year was enjoyed by the members of the public speak-
ing class. Contests and school activities were the objects of study.
The first important assignment was the ten-minute Red Cross speeches
Preliminary try-outs were held, and Golden Grimsley, Barbara Kroeck,
Nancylee McPhee, and Gordon Gray were chosen as the best four. In
the finals, Nancylee McPhee took first place and Golden Grimsley sec-
ond. On October 18, Nancylee gave her address of welcome at the dis-
trict convention of the Junior Red Cross, and Golden presided at the
meeting, which was held at the Philomathean Club.
The Armistice Day Program held in the east glade on November 10
was sponsored by the public speaking class. Poems and speeches were
given in honor of the occasion. Nancylee McPhee gave Alan Seeger's
"I Have a Rendezvous With Deathf, and J. B. MCI-Ian gave "In Flan-
ders Fields," by John McCrae. Golden Grimsley and Francis Jacobson
gave speeches. Myrtle Keller acted as chairman. The members stood
before the oak tree with its plaque bearing the names of those who gave
their lives in the war. Troubadours assisted in the program.
The next feature was the Extemporaneous Contest. Subjects such
as "Unemployment," "Crime," "Mussolini,,' and "Madam Curie," were
given in class. Barbara Kroeck, 12-A, took first place in the prelimin-
aries and Peter Lewis second place. On December 12, at the Livings-
ton High School, Barbara Kroeck took second place honors on her talk,
"Madam Curie." Six schools entered this contest, namely, Ripon, Fres-
no, Modesto, Livingston, Stockton, and Turlock. Peter Lewis, who took
second place in the preliminaries in class, gave a Christmas prologue for
the program at the high school, under the direction of Frank Thornton
During the second half of the term, try-outs were again held for
Junior Red Cross speeches in both A and B classes. Nancylee McPhee
took first place in the A public speaking class, and Elmo Tussing in the
B class. Both speeches were delivered at the Tracy High School, which
is a new member of the Junior Red Cross Society.
The Shakespearean Contest was interesting to the class this year, be-
cause members from both the A and B classes placed in the preliminaries
held at the high school, Frank Tassano placed among the boys, and
Nancylee McPhee and Barbara Kroeck among the girls in the try-outs.
In the first preliminary held before the judges, Barbara Kroeck and Louis
Tad Shima were awarded first places among the contestants. In the
final try-outs at the high school, these two took first honors. Barbara
Kroeck's lines were from "King John," and Louis Shima's from "Othel-
lo," Louis was also the winner at the district contest held at Modesto. Both
"GUARD AND TACKLEH Ex,'NM
contestants Went to Berkeley for the state finals. Barbara Kroeck took
second place in the preliminaries for the annual Oratorical Contest held
at Tracy on April 30. Her topic was "The Trees of Californiaf' A
boy from Hughson High School took first place.
Four members of the class advertised "A Night in Scotlandf' at va-
rious clubs. Speeches advertising football games Were given before the
students by Francis Jacobson, Nancylee McPhee and George Capurro.
The class in speech correction, under the direction of Miss Ida C.
Green, is a new departure, but it has already made considerable progress.
A change for the better this year was seen in twenty-five members of
the class. Eighteen stammerers received help the second semester.
Progress of the students was brought about by the person's own efforts
under proper teaching. Some were given private help. This study of
speech correction has helped many students who were troubled with
articulation defects, principally lisping. This subject will be continued

THE Playcrafters held their annual pledging ceremony on September
17. Many new members were added, after an interesting and
varied program given by several of the members. The organization
of forty-five students has enlarged considerably this year and has given
many entertaining programs before the student body. The Playcrafters
assisted Mr. Frank Thornton Smith's Christmas program, "The Child
of Flanders." The parts taken were largely pantomime. The officers
of the organization this year were, president, Dorothy Ferguson, gen-
eral manager, Glenn White, and secretary, Della Parsons. The sponsor
of the organization for the first semester was Peter W. Knoles, for the
second, Greydon Milam, graduate student of the College of Pacific.
These directors did much to make the Playcrafters an outstanding group
in school activities. The co-operation of the members of the organiza-
tion has made this their most active year. Those who did much for the
advertising of plays were Georgia and Sophia Thanos, and Dale Ruse.
"The Eligible Mr. Bangsi' was the first play they gave this year. It
was presented before the student body and was Well received. The cast
included Jack Parsons as Mr. Bangs, Adeline Read, Lucile Morgan,
Nancylee McPhee, Jane Foster, and Dale Ruse, Tom Foster. "Help
Yourself," a three-act comedy, Was another successful performance. . It
was given at the high school auditorium on Friday evening, Novem-
ber 21. The plot of this human drama centered around a lake of mud
which the owners try to exploit as a source of beauty and health. Frank
Wilbur took the leading part and exhibited some fine acting. Millita
Ehlers played opposite him. Other characters were Naomi Tate, in
the role of a young widow, with designs upon Mr. Wilbur and his source
of wealth. Glenn White and Adeline Read distinguished themselves in
"GUARD AND TACKLEU .
the villainous parts. Ed French, as Frank Wilbur's brother, won sympa-
thy from the audience. Doug Nelson and Bob Lockey furnished the
laughs. This play was directed by Peter W. Knoles, history teacher dur-
ing the first semester.
"Seventeen,,' Booth Tarkington's comedy, was presented on March 6,
at the high school auditorium by the Playcrafters., It was directed by
Greydon Milam and scored a decided hit. The cast was as follows: Silly
Billy Baxter, the love-sick boy of seventeen, portrayed by William Wood-
ward, Lola Pratt, Billy's baby-talk lady, by Ruth Williamson, Mr. Bax-
ter, the hard-hearted father, Frank Wilbur, Mrs. Baxter, the under-
standing mother, Nancylee McPhee, and Jane Baxter, the "loving,' sister,
Bobbin Gay Peck. Other parts were taken by Ed French, Hudson
Vitaich, Jean Rossi, Della Parsons, Robert Lockey, and Morton Brown.
"The Jade God," a popular mystery drama, was given by the imid-
year class on January 23 at 8:15, in the high school auditorium. The
plot was based upon the murder of John Millicent of Back Lodge, Sussex,
England, and owner of the jade god. Edith Derrick was portrayed by
Bettyjo Kitt, Jack Derrick, by Stan Fowler, Jean Millicent, Hance of
Derrick, by Urilda Wade, Mrs. Thursby, by Fern Ruess, Blunt, a myste-
rious man from the East, by Peter Canlis, Inspector Burke, by-Leroy
Atwood, and Peter of the police force, by James Bainbridge. The pro-
duction was directed by Mr. Knoles. '

JUNE SENIOR PLAY
"The Perfect Alibi," a thrill-
ing detective story, was present-
ed June 5 at the auditorium.
This sensational drama was
made successful by the unusual
acting of the students. Susan
Cunningham, who solves the
mystery of the murder, was
portrayed by Adeline Read,
Jimmy Ludgrave, who assists his
fiance, Susan, in finding the
murderers, byEdFrenchg Aaron
Passovoy and David Green skill-
fully portrayed the parts of the

. of the killing was played by

let, the typical village police-
man, by Clarence Rice, and Jane West, a sophisticated friend of Susan,
was taken by Jessie Wheatley. Other characters were portrayed by
Glenn White, the Major, Barbara Jones, Mrs. Fulverton-Pane, and Dale
Ruse, the butler. This play also was directed by Greydon Milam. The
production, presented before a fairly good audience, aroused a great deal
of interest because of
the unique plot. This
perfect crime, com-
mitted by the villains
who always had a per-
fact alibi, gave the he-
ro and heroine consi-
derable trouble. The
about it all was that
the audience knew
who the murderers
were, but the charac-
ters in the play did
not. This made the
audience feel that
they were solving the

THE Girls' League had as its chief accomplishment
the arranging of programs which develop and
bring out the talent of the members. Oflicers for
the year were Eva Celayeta, president, Clare Ellis,
vice-president, and Dorothea Wood, secretary-treas-
urer. Eva Celayeta, Rose Gaviglia, and Miss Alice
McInnes attended the convention at Tamalpais high
school in October. The year's programs began with
Eva Celayeta Nonsense Day in November, presenting a senseless
play which kept the audience in gales of laughter.
In December, a program of Christmas music by the Troubadours and
the Mu Zeta Rho trio from the College of .Pacific was given. The dance
pageant in February was colorful and clever, with the whole program
moving swiftly and smoothly. International Day, in March, was unique.
Students of different nationalities interpreted songs, dances and stories
of their respective countries. In March there was a dramatic program,
with the winners of the Shakespearian contest and others giving their se-
lections. The Camp Fire girls presented the May program, which was
unusual and entertaining, being a fashion show of garb to be worn at
summer camps. In June, a Senior Day bade farewell to the graduating
members, with an out-of-town speaker. The Girls, League assisted the
Parent-Teachers' Association in the Mothers' Day tea on May 12.
The program committees for the year were as follows: Nonsense
Day, November, Miss Eugenia Grunsky, sponsor, Jacquelin Kappenburg,
chairman, Jean Rosenberger, Myrtle Keller, Elizabeth Prewett. The
Christmas music program had for its sponsor Frank Thornton Smith,
with Clare Ellis, chairman, Rose Shuster, Elna Louise Peterson, and
Nancylee McPhee. The dramatics program was under the supervision
of Miss Ida C. Green, with Adeline Read, Ralphyne Brady, and Dorothy
Ferguson. Miss Lucile Halwick had charge of the dance pageant, a repe-

activities. A float built by Hi-Y members entered the Armistice Day
parade, to represent the different boys' activities.
Among outstanding meetings of the year was "Varsity Nite,"
"Brick" Muller being the main speaker. The "Father and Sons" banquet
went over with the usual success, as did "Varsity Nite." "Find Yourself
Campaign," which Dr. J. O. McLaughlin and E. M. Bunnell directed,

this group being S. Reed. The objects are to promote a better appre-
ciation among young men of the principles of the golden rule as ap-
plied by successful business and professional meng to promote better
citizenship in school, city, state, and nation, and to promote altruism
and friendship among young men and to serve our fellowmen. Only
applicants with good scholarship, and good leadership qualities are ad-
mitted. Starting with the fall term, A1 Rider, the new president, moved
the club into the old bungalow, which has had its name changed to
the Key Clubhouse. The rooms were remodeled and the luncheons be-
came more pleasant in the clubhouse. In the spring term Elmer Esoarcia
became president, and Frank Wood, vice-president. A new regulation
of dues was started to increase the treasury. The Easter vacation was
used to paint the entire inside of the clubhouse, and all its tables. The
first service rendered by the club was the sharing of its clubhouse with

DURING the past year activities of the Japanese Club have been very
interesting, and membership has practically doubled. On Inter-
national Day the club contributed with a dance given by members
dressed in native costumes. Entertainment at the meeting was Well re-
ceived, it included singing, games, and musical selections, all produced
by local talent. Following a plan suggested by Miss Elizabeth Humbar-

for some meetings. Business men came before the club and spoke on
various subjects. This plan is to be carried out in future years.
A picnic was held as Well as graduation parties for mid-term and
June graduates. Pins were sold to all members of the' group. For Tacky

ONE of the liveliest foreign clubs in the school is the Filipino Club.
Under the able direction of Miss Catherine Humbargar, adviser,
the islanders have made a real effort toward making their programs in-

THE STOCKTON High Tarzans had one of the best seasons since
football began in Stockton. Although they did not win the sectional
C. I. F., they defeated three traditional foes and broke a ten-year-old
tradition. The first game with San Francisco Polytechnic ended in a 14
to 19 score against Stockton. The "Red Devils" had three games before
the Tarzan encounter, while the Tarzans had only one. The team is not
in the habit of taking two punches in succession. The boys proved this
by overcoming the highly reputed Mountain Viewers by the largest score
in the season, 33 to 0. St. Mary's of Stockton challenged the Tarzans to
a game, which proved to be a bad move on their part. The Saints tasted
a 20 to 0 defeat at the hands of the youths who warm the bench.
The opening C. I. F. game with Modesto was the only serious defeat
the school faced. The Modesto Panthers had taken so many beatings
from the Tarzans it seemed quite out of place that they should commence
to play real football in the year of 1930. However, the Tarzans were
knocked off their feet by surprise, and when the game ended Modesto
went wild over a 13 to 0 victory. The low-charging, hard-hitting line
of the Panthers was the cause of this victory.
The next opponent was the Sacramento Dragons. The Dragons
opened their season with the best team they ever owned, but due to a
little trick played on Lodi, their team was somewhat broken up. Still,
the Tarzans had just cause to fear such men as "Lammie" Theodoratos,

Svilich, and Silvers. These men formed a flashy, hard-hitting backfield.
The Tarzans were considered the underdogs against the angry, blood-
thirsty Dragons. When the game ended the underdogs had crushed the
Dragons to the tune of 19 to 6. This victory put the Tarzans in a re-
spected place on the C. I. F. list. The "annual walkawayn with Preston
ended as usual, with the Prestonians on the short side of a 33 to 7 score.
This game Was an easy workout for the little "Big Game," which was
scheduled for 2:30 Saturday, November 15, but was later changed to
Friday, November 14, at 8:00 p. m. The Flames flaunted the fact that
Stockton had never beaten them on their own field. This tradition was
worth keeping, and the Tokays were in no frame of mind for losing it. A
tradition of such age is worth fearing, but the "Ghost Trainv proceeded
under full steam to the grape metropolis. The Tarzans were in a Hghting
mood, although slightly nervous. The first quarter showed Tarzan supe-
riority, although by dangerously narrow margins the boys failed to score.
The third quarter spelt doom for the Flames and their tradition. Two
goals were piled up in rapid succession, at the end of which Captain Leon
Mettler of the Flames was forced out of the fray. Okasaki substituted
for Mettler and caught a "Lindberg pass" which was the Flames' only
score. This 13 to 7 victory over Lodi made this a banner year in foot-
ball. The annual game with the Bakersfield Drillers was the only long
trip made by the Tarzans. The trip was not in vain, for the Drillers
took a 14 to 7 oiling from the Tarzans. This was another feather for the
Stockton cap, as the Drillers beat most of their opponents in the south-

Coaches "Bud" McKay and "Pete" Knoles guidedthe Tarzans thru
their successful season. McKay has many good prospects for the 1931
aggregation and a few old timers around whom to build the team. The
backheld will center around Frank Alustiza, the Tarzan that knows how
to pound the line, as well as punt and pass to good advantage. Warren
Bird and George Canlis will see plenty of action in the backfield. Cap-
tain Irving Lang, a three year man, will form the nucleus of the line,
assisted by Al George, John Panizza, Gay Rible, and Orville Jones at end.
Harry Allen will land a position on the first string line if he retains the
punch he possessed this last season. Outstanding players on the "Bee"
team will fill in the holes left by graduation.
Dom George, four year man, left Stockton High in January with
four years of consistent, hard playing to his credit. Ernest Sutton has
played with the Tarzans for three years, in which time he has developed
a taste for hard knocks. Jim Bainbridge, a cool headed signal shouter, left
the Tarzans last January after two years of faithful service. Along with
the other good men go George "Axle" Brooks, and Garth Liesy, who have
built themselves a reputation for line bucking and hard tackling. True
Ames, Leroy Atwood, Willard Hancock, Kenneth Miller, Robert Stone,
Wilbur Waggoner and Laurence Woods, who formed the reserve team,
have finished their high school football career. The boys formed the "old
reliable" when a varsity man went out.

The first game of the season with Elk Grove was a hard knock for
the "Bees", taking a 19-0 beating, they turned around and chastized
Galt 38-0. The Manteca Bulldogs came to Stockton and returned home
with a 12-0 victory to their credit. Under the arcs at Lodi the "Bees"
held the Elamelets to a scoreless tie. Next came the annual tussle with
the Tracy milkmen. The young Tarzans were nosed out by five points.
Lodi then tried playing football under the local candle towers, but un-
fortunately they lost 18-0. The team then migrated to Ione, swarmed
down on the Ionian pig-skin packers and stung them 20-7. This ended
the "Bees' ,' football program for 1931. Every freshman should try out
for the "Bee" team. A year of playing on this team makes a good varsity

UNDER the training of Coach "Pete,' Lenz and the leadership of Cap-
tain Marvin Dinkel, the Tarzan hoop squad turned out a successful
season, after getting off to a poor start. This past season saw the downfall
of supremacy in basketball for Stockton. For thirteen years Stockton
teams have played supreme over any other team in the C. I. F. Sub-
League. This year for the first time, they lost this title when they drop-
ped the play-off game to Sacramento on the Dragons, court by the count
of 28 to 21. Nearly twenty games were played this season, making one of
the longest ever encountered by the Tarzans. Of the 15 most important
games, the Tarzans gained 7. Among some of the teams played were the
U. C. Frosh, Stanford Frosh, S. F. Poly, Turlock, and the three schools
in the C.'I. F. Sub-League.
The five original cage men did not make a winning combination, so
a new one was found. In mid-season there were enough players fighting
for first five honors to cause the best and only the best to be used. The
most consistent combination was Wally Wood and A1 George at forward,
Peck at center and captain "Mank" Dinkel and Beck Parsons at guard,
Alders, Bean, Jones, Grillo, Mazzera were ready to replace any of them
at any time. The Tarzans opened their season unfortunately, by drop-
ping six important games before getting even one win under their belts.
Their first victory came when they beat the St. Mary's Rams 15-9 in
the opening tilt of a three game series.

The Tarzans met their first doom when they took a jaunt down to
Turlock to clean the city and paint it blue. Starting the second string,
the Tarzans began to lag on the score board. Coming back with the first
string at the end of the half against Turlock's second string, they con-
tinued the game until the fourth quarter, when both schools were playing
the best they had. The final score was 25 to 26 in favor of Turlock.
The following week Stockton played host to two strong teams. The Oak-
dale quintet came down from their big village cocksure to win, and re-
turned satisfied. The game was a real battle from start to finish, but the
village boys proved too tough and claimed honors with 23 to 21 on the
score board. Revenge is sweet, so they say, but the Tarzans were unable
to avenge the defeat which San Francisco Polytechnical High School gave
the football team earlier in the year. They did all they could to hold a
small space on the floor and take a 28 to 13 defeat.
The next encounter was with the Modesto Panthers for the first C. I. F.
game of the season. The Panthers drew first and last blood, taking the
game by storm with the score 26 to17. Stockton then took to the road
and traveled to U. C. and Stanford, to find no change in luck, and to be
defeated by both frosh teams.
Returning to the C. I. F. schedule the following week, the Sacramento
Dragons piled up a large score, defeating the Tarzan hoopsters by the
score of 28 to 21. On Wednesday night of the same week the Tarzans
met the St. Mary's Rams in the first of the triangular series for the city
high school championship. This game was Stockton's Hrst big win of
the year. They took the Rams by 15 to 9. Getting down to more busi-
ness-like work, the Blues took the third C. I. F. game to tie with Lodi for

cellar position, having smothered the Flames to the tune of 35 to 26. In
a mid-week game, the Tarzans lost to St. Mary's, but the second string
were the losers, as the first string was being saved for the week end game.
The Rams won by 19 to 14.
The week end game, with Modesto, decided whether Stockton had a
chance for C. I. F. honors or should stay in the cellar. The Tarzans came
through and won this game by a margin of two points, the score being
29 to 27. A1 George led the scorers in this tilt with 10 points. A com-
bination that could click had been found, and the following week when
the Tarzans played hosts to the Sacramento Dragons, they sent them back
home on the short end of the 20 to 19 score. Captain Dinkel took high
point honors with 11 points.
Lodi dropped the last scheduled league game to the Tarzans, leaving
Sacramento and Stockton with a tie to be played off. The Lodi-Stockton
score was 25 to 10, Al George leading with 10 points to his credit. The
play-off was held at Sacramento, with each afraid of the other. The
Dragons emerged victorious, with Joe George leading the scorers with
10 points. The score was 28 to 21. The Tarzans won the City Cham-
pionship by taking the third game from St. Mary's, by the score of 31 to
19. So ends a fairly successful season, with the only misfortune being the
drastic loss to the Sacramento Dragons in the final tilt.

Bee Basketball N
CLASS B sports as a Whole this year were very successful. One of
the best Bee basketball teams this school ever had was produced
by Coach "Hap', Evans. They played a preliminary to most of the
varsity games and were entered in a league at the same time.
Their first accomplishment was a 30-17 victory over the Turlock
"Bee" team. Emil Mazzera was the star of this game with 10 points.
Then came the disastrous blow, when Oakdale "Bees" trounced them.
Not recovering from this shock, they took another defeat from the
baby Panthers of Modesto. Then they plucked up nerve enough to
come out of the slump and beat Escalon, 16-10. Beasley almost shot
the netting off the hoop by making 12 of the 16 points. At the first
"little-big" game, the yearlings smothered the Flames completely by
36-19. Baskin and Beasley tied for high point honors. Then came an-
other depression When they met the Panthers in the second league game.
"Then came the dawn," when the Sacto baby Dragons were slain by
the close score of 22-21. Pete Carey, a new star, marked up 12 points.
Another crack at Lodi, and they returned with a 37-19 victory. Pete
Carey Went Wild in this game with 17 points, and with a little more
encouragement could have beaten Lodi alone. At Sacramento in the
fifth league game, they took another licking, but by only a small mar-
gin. The season looks favorable for next year's varsity, for most of the
boys will compose the 1932 basketball varsity. A

Italian club won the intramural with 33 pointhg the Chinese club fol-
lowed with 29. The seniors swamped all others in the interclass.
The first victim of the Blues was Roseville, who succumbed to Stock-
ton, 95-29. Carl Feck, captain, turned in fifteen points, making him
high point man. Stockton suffered the first defeat at the hands of Mo-
desto, several Tarzans figured for firsts on the dope sheet failed to over-
come the better-conditioned Modestans, and placed only second or third.
The score was 73-49. The relay team, however, won by a big margin.
Next the school defeated the Alumni, score 65-57. The Blues took all
but two firsts in a meet with Oakdale and Manteca, making 95 M points,
the latter made 35 and 14M respectively. Then followed two over-
whelming victories, Lodi and Turlock, and one defeat at the hands of
Berkeley and Modesto. The relay team, consisting of Markham, Andrews,
Jacobsen, and Feck, plus Feckis hurdling, brought Stockton third place

At Sequoia High School, Coach Pete Lenz and his splashers were
swamped by the powerful Redwood City boys. Returning from the
beating, they drubbed Sacramento Junior College and Lodi High the fol-
lowing week. Next came Sacramento High, with the Tarzans rated as the
underdogs. When the duel had been completed, Stockton held the long
end of the 67-27 score. Pete Lenz tried a new angle, and invited Oak-
dale High to compete in a triangle meet with Lodi and Stockton. Gain-
ing bigger and better victories, the boys romped through this meet, then
the coach invited Sacramento to the same kind of game. When these
two triangle meets were complete, Palo Alto was the next big obstacle,
before the Northern Sectional swim at Lodi.
This season completed the careers of Glen Holt, northern sectional
fancy diving champion, Captain Richard Bennett, holder of the state
100 breast stroke record, Philip Busalacchi, sensational 220 man, and Sam
Peters, one time holder of state breast stroke record, and later sprint
star. These four have earned points in swimming since they were fresh-
men. Bud Reiman, Marion Gorley, Paul Camp, Jack and Bill Dozier,
Warren Bird, and Jack Trantham are good point makers who will be
back on next year's team.

' By each breeze are told of new-born glories:

And spicy mint in sweet confusion are.
Like unto these, O Nature, that we

NGUARD AND TACKLEH g
Listen, my children, and you shall hear
Of scholars departing from school this year,
On the eighteenth of June in thirty-one
Are pinned the hopes of many a one.
We have worked like Trojans, with fear in each heart,
Lest the visions of college be forced to depart.
The appearance of fours on a bad looking card
Is the fate of the ones who didn't try very hard
To work out their lessons with a vim and a will,
And so they're the ones to be staying here still.
Our hopes for the future, are now Very strong,
With Visions quite different for each of the throng,
Some of us dream that great doctors we'll be,
While others expect the state laws to decree,
And many a classmate, with unsettled mind,
Just trusts to discover a taste of some kind.
Our heart-beats, they quicken, at thought of completing
Our school days, the time now is fleeting
That once crawled so slowly, yet a spirit of sadness
At saying farewell creeps into our gladness.
