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.

Sad parting looks devour thy every stone. There is one comfort still: to ue'er forget Thee as we journey on, alone. -MARGARET RUTLEDGE, 12 A Ollemnvn 'tGUARD AND TACKLEH i 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- promptu bawling out by the master of ceremonies-someone had unwit- tingly given a Bronx cheer at an un- Nllfl -T ll ZH 'U' g ' l ii NNI?

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 ,MQ their importance. lin an elegion, li j K - elf" Clarence Rice was c osen presi ent, EWS xiii ML' ' J Dale Ruse, vice-president, and Ken- neth Miller, secretary. f 1 1- Twenty 4.0Q.,.0.0.0.'.p-4-.e.a-4-4-0-o-0-e ,-,.,.,.-.sp-0-.rgufo-0-0-0-eo-0 Joe Abdallah Mabel Abt Edward Ah Tye Alice Aldrich Ben Allin Marie Amaral True Ames Juanita Anderson Lenora Bartles Jack Beaver Geneve Behrns Marvin Belew Vivian Beneclix Dorcas Bentz Doris Black Melba Black Wilbur Blewetc Gladys Boclcmon Marian Boege Melvin Boggiano Howard Bosch Mary Boslcovich Harry Brassesco QQGUARD AND TAQKLEU Twenty-one UGUARD AND TACKLE" Orvall Bresee Genevieve Brunner Alfred Buckle Mary Budiselich Cecilio Burigsay Betty Burnett Floyd Burtz Philip Busalacchi Emma Callegari Carlton Camp Genevieve Carlson Lillian Carlson Doloris Carpenter George Carr - Floyd Cassaretto Arthur Caviglia Eva Celayeta " Bennie Claridacl Robert Clark Ralph Clay Henry Cody Dorothy Coffman Wilton Colberg Twenty-two on-a-.ea-4-4-4Np.4.p..p..4-.Q-,-.,.,... o-oo-oo-fa-0-0-0.0-04-4..p..p.0., ll LE!!

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 for themselves. 4"N fxyl xl :N fs. - 1 ' a. v . 1' - . . x' A ' I Bearing in mind that the success of school activities and accomplish- ments for the fall semester depends upon them, 12B seniors are prepar- 'X -, 1 ing to enter into the final stretch.

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 H the contest, although the seniors were said to win, the title of winner is still dis- puted by the junior class.

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 life work. Thirty-seven "GUARD AND TACKLEH The Class of IQ34 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.

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 keep up this tradition in years to come. May the class of '34 be the best ever! itGUARD AND Q-IACKLEU Post Graduates 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 Thirty--nine "GUARD AND TACKLE,, """"' The Land Of Might-Be First Prize 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.

UGUARD AND 'TACKLEH Principalk Message 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. W.

Carl Truex was recommended and approved as business manager of the Guard and Tackle Weekly. This appointment completed the roster of the Student Coun- cil : Eleanor Vollman, first vice-president, Steve Natali, Commissioner of Welfare, Avery Kizer, Commissioner of Publications, Robert Nelson, Commissioner of Records, Torrey Lyons, Custodian of Sc-hool Proper- ties, Everett Leek, Commissioner of Organizations, Joe Pease, Commis- sioner of Athletics, Carl Truex, Jr., Commissioner of Advertising, Eva Celayeta, Commissioner of Girls' Affairs, Chris Cota, Chairman of Jun- ior Red Cross, and the Faculty Adviser, L. N. Pease. A rather drab program of approving bills and doling out finances for the student 'projects followed. A special type of block S on a lyre was awarded the members of the band and the orchestra. There were only four changes made in the council by the mid-term election. Henry Schiffman was replaced by Gay Rible, winner of first honors in the close contest for the highest office. Steve Natali gave place to Bob Stone, new Commissioner of Welfare.

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 selected numbers. Troubadours Fi fty-one !tGUARD AND TACKLEU 2MN. Scene fro m the Christmas Program "The Child of Flanders," Christmas spectacle given December 18, was a story told through the vehicle of a war situation. Mr. Smith di- rected the chorus of 250 voices in the balcony of the auditorium, and Troubadours sang their selections on the stage. The Playcrafters and Peter Lewis of the public speaking class assisted. The Troubadours are sixteen students who have been active in school life. On Christ- mas Eve at the Fox Cali- fornia they sang carols. Luncheon clubs, hospit- als, the Public Health Association, and the high school student body have enjoyed their pro- grams. Members are Theodora Kroeck, La- homa Smith, Clara Ellis, Nelle McGinley, Frances Hogan, Orvall Bresee, Walter Huber, Ridge- way Moore, Maurice Vieira, James Lewis, Ho- mer Morrill, Beck Par- sons, Glenn White, Al- ma Weinstein, Joan Robinson, and Agnes Cormeny.

Band and Drum Corps Fifty-three !QGUARD AND TACKLE,, .Nw:2 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 awarded emblems. F ifzfyffozir QQGUARD AND TACKLE,, '-'- journalism 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.

QQGUARD AND TACKLEH Public Speaking 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 Smith. 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 Fifty-eight "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 next year. Auditorium Fifty-nine Q "QUARD AND 'TACKLEU ....v.... Playcrafters Drama. 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 Sixty . "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. ' From "Help Yourself" Sixty-one !tGUAKD AND TACKLEN '-LwN 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 two criminals Who shot Mr. Ludgrove, in the person of Ralph Kennedy, the sergeant who fails to discover the cause . of the killing was played by Keith Houlsong Constable Mal- 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 extraordinary thing 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 deep mystery them- "The Jade Goclv selves.

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 Hi-Y club has seventy members, and boasts of the best program of speakers to appear before any club of equal size. Among the speakers are doctors, ministers, professors, deans, coaches, school and college presi- dents, and former Hi-Y officers. Topics ranged from "Teeth" to "Mod- ern Concert Organs." Fifteen Hi-Y members attended the Older Boys' Conference at Asilomar. Over one hundred participated in Californiad 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, proved a marked success. Over 125 boys had conferences with 30 busi- ness men. "Kempy," a comedy presented by the Hi-Y and Tri-Y in April, Was Well received by the students. Club officers the first semester were James Bainbridge, president, Wallace Wood, vice-president, George Capurro, secretary, Dale Ruse, treasurer, Ray McGlothen, sergeant-at-arms.

Miss Marilla Dunning is faculty adviser. Seventy-four 'QGUARD AND TACKLEH Pan Pacific Club Pan Pacijfc C lub HE Pan Pacific Club, composed of one hundred members, is one of the largest in Stockton High. The purpose of the group is to create a feeling of friendliness towards countries of Central and South Amer- ica, as well as the Orient and Islands of the Pacific. The members are taking or have taken Pan Pacific history. Latin America has many commodities that the United States needs, and Latin America needs our trade and capital, in a few words, "We Need Each Other." The old saying to young men was, "Go west young man, go west." The oppor- tunities offered in South America change this admonition to "Go south young man, go south." Many American students go to South America every year, either for missionary work or for positions in some of the large cities. Last semester Reverend Shade and his wife attended a Pan Pacific meeting and Mr. Shade gave a very interesting talk on Mexico. He told how the people are constantly improving living conditions, especially among the Indians. Mary Jones, field representative of the Red Cross, gave an excellent talk on the conditions in Samoa. She illustrated her talk with pictures, which proved very interesting to those who attended. John H. Landrum told the members about his trip to Mexico, and his various interesting experiences with the people of the southern nation. Wesley G. Young, faculty adviser of the club, planned a Chinese dinner as a "get-to-gether" for all the Pan Pacific members and ex-members and officers. The officers for the first semester were Daisy Neuman, president, Eleanor Mittenmaier, vice-president, Kathryn Hall, secretary-treasurer, Lloyd Coffin, sergeant-at-arms. Officers for the second semester were Elmo DeWhitt, president, Eleanor Mittenmaier, vice-president, Kathryn Hall, secretary-treasurer.

In January, fifth place in editorials was won by Avery Kizer, and Jane Eicke received honorable mention for feature writing. In June 1928, the local Quill and Scroll chapter was organized. This society is now an international organization, with chapters in Europe, as well as in this country. Membership includes students of the weekly and annual staffs, who are in the upper third of their class scholastically, and who are recommended by the journalism faculty adviser as outstanding in the school publications. r The purpose of Quill and Scroll is to instill in students the ideal of scholarship, to advance the standards of student journalism by developing better journalists and by inculcating a higher code of ethics, to promote exact and dispassionate thinking, and clear and forceful writing. Avery Kizer, Jane Eicke, Kenneth Endich, Carl Truex, Myrtle Keller, and Luella Geddes were initiated in January by Henry Schiffman, February graduate, the only member of the society who remained from last year. Kenneth Endich, president, Carl Truex, vice-president, and Myrtle Keller, secretary, were the oflicers elected for the spring semester. George Capurro and Howard McBride were initiated in April, with an- other initiation planned for June.

The course is under the direction of Mr. M. Bond, and the boys receive instruction in machine shop practice, pattern mak- ing, sheet metal Work, plumbing, electricity, boat building, and baking. During this year the club enjoyed many feeds and also journeyed to Sac- ramento to visit the state printing establishment.

These members are Robert Stone, Robert Swenson, Marshall Dunlap, Ward Drury, Bertram Ry- land, Nathan Damon, Jack Dozier, Bill Dozier, Jack Crowle, and Bob Blewett. A membership committee, composed of Nathan Damon and Alvin Levy, campaigned various science teachers for prospective mem- bers. With the new members inducted, the club was working smoothly as an organized machine. A letter of sympathy was sent to the mother of Calhoun Reid, organizer of the earlier club, who passed away this year. Several interesting speeches accounted for large attendance. The speak- ers were H. J. Snook, on "Animals That Produce Light in the Sea", J. C. Corbett, Arthur Everett, on "Cheap Fuel," and Ralph S. Raven. Bob Swenson, vice-president, and Bob Blewett, secretary, played their part in forwarding the trips to the Crockett sugar refinery, and the Liquid Air Plant in Sacramento.

Urilda Wade and Marjorie Jonesshouldered the presidential position and were assisted by a competent cabinet. The activities of the club do not prop- erly gauge the liveliness of it. Flower books were compiled by the girls, and they set up slides and exhibits for "Open House" night. Several speeches were made by members of the club on scientific subjects which they have studied. Parties to be held in conjunction with the "Boys' Science Club" were planned, and one was given in the girls' pavilion on Hallowe'en. The club is still in a growing state and new members are constantly being added to the roster. Plans for meetings and activities similar .to those of the "Boys' Science Club" are being made and will probably be executed during the coming year. S6'I!67ZfjI--11i1Z6 "GUARD AND TACKLE" r..Ng l Key Club Key Club THE Key Club is a junior service club associated with Kiwanis, adult organization. It originated in Sacramento in the spring of 1925, and has since become nation-wide in scope. It is built upon the same lines as the older club, its constitution simulating that of Kiwanis In- ternational. The Stockton High School Key Club was organized in January, 1928, by the Stockton Kiwanis Club, the faculty adviser of 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 the Old English "S" society. Then these two clubs went together and put over the best program ever given to Kiwanis. Tacky Day the club put on the good old show of tossing cream puffs at its new members. The club's last meeting was at night in its clubhouse on June 16. Eighty "GUARD AND 'IACKLEH Sigma Eta Phi Sigma Eta Phi HE Greek meaning of Sigma Eta Phi symbolizes Skill, Honor, and Friendship. Such is the purpose of this club, formed of students doing co-operative work in the vocational department who are outstand- ing workers in their classes. Students enrolled in the co-operative depart- ment work alternate weeks down town to gain practical experience, and then automatically become members of the club. Sigma Eta Phi was organized at Stockton High School three years ago. Glancing at the numerous good times that the boys have participated in during the past year, one easily sees that this club is one of the best organized groups of boys in the school. Most of the members have motor- cycles, and many trips were taken. When snow frolics were at their height, the club journeyed to Long Barn. The boys attended two auto shows, one in San Francisco and the other in Sacramento. On motor- cycles many members went to San Jose for the auto races. A basketball team was maintained also. The boys attended most of the football and basketball games. Very fortunate is the club in having Mr. Ralph Herring, teacher of related subjects, as their adviser. Mr. Herring had an active part in scout activities in some thirteen scout camps. Officers of the club for the last semester were Glen McGill, president, Lennis Tupper, secretary, Albert Kopping, treasurer, Jimmie Miniaci, vice-treasurer, Carter Tyler, ser- geant-at-armsg Everett Williams, photographer, George Miller, athletic manager, and Jack Crampton, entertainment manager.

Members of this club have occupied themselves in building models of various types of airplanes. Once a month a contest was held in the civic auditorium in which applicants tried their models out for endurance records. All boys had to have flying models to join the club. Business men of Stockton have cooperated by offering sil- ver cups as prizes to winners of the monthly contests. Business firms providing the cups were Turner Hardware Co., Glick's Jewelry Store, Friedberger's Jewelry Store,Kuechler's Jewelry Store,and the Fox Theatre. The cups were presented at the Fox Theatre during performance. The contests held in the Civic Auditorium were sponsored by the Y. M. C.

The Saturnalia, Latin equivalent for Christmas, was celebrated by an exchange of small gifts among the members. Mrs. Raiola, tour conductor, presented a very graphic description of Pompeii and excavations there. Ralph C. Hofmeister, freed from 'class- room duties during the first semester, returned with humor-flecked tales of stony piles in foreign lands. The College of the Pacific invited the assistance of members in the production of a play, and received hearty response.

Italian Club OF THE four years that the Italian Club has been or- ganized in this school, the activities in the past year have been most successful. The ardent Work of Mr. Luigi Vannuccini, faculty adviser and sponsor, has suc- ceeded in making a name for his club. The membership has increased from an apparently insignificant number to some two hundred students, and now the Italian club is one of the largest in the school.

In addition, prizes such as medals, books and scholastic awards have been offered as inducements to students in this school in order that they might make the most of their study of Italian. For outstanding activities during the past year the Italian Club cer- tainly deserves to be commended. All meetings have been well attended and programs were well received. The officers have obtained the best of school talent to provide entertainment. The third Annual Italian Club Night was successfully held.

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, o.oEoRoEm'N LANcCm?'N'PLffT An.:51'nz,A Ury Beoonas coAcH MCKAY N inety--seven H""':', HGUARD AND 'TACKLEH 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- and. N inety-eight "QUARD AND TACKLEH HANCOCK STONE MURRAY RIBLE GOMEZ WAGGONER K.Mll-l,ER 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 following men received football awards: four year men-Dom George, three year men-Irving Lang and Ernest Sutton, two year men- Frank Alustiza, James Bainbridge, George Brooks, Henry Felix, Allen Gomes, and Jack Murray, one year men-Harry Allen, True Ames, Le- roy Atwood, Warren Bird, Al George, Willard Hancock, Yolland john- son, Orville Jones, Garth Liesy, Mel Mazzera, Kenneth Miller, John Pa- nizza, Gay Rible, Robert Stone, Wilbur Waggoner, Laurence Woods, and Malcom Tucker. , N inety--nine HGUARD AND TACKLEH Top-Second String Center-Third String Bottom-First String One Hundred N.NN QQGUARD AND Q-IACKLEH Bee Football NDER the direction of "Hap" Evans the Tarzan "Bees" turned in the best season since the days of old.

Bill Leary, playing at right end, stopped more men than a racketeer with two ma- chine guns. Hudson Vitaich and Earl Willis were the galloping galoops of the ball-toting department. 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 man. . Thirty-eight boys made up the "Bee" team this year. Out of this number five were freshmen, twelve sophomores, eighteen juniors and one senior.

A One Hundred Two Q'GUARD AND TACKLEH Basketball S 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.

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.

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. One Hundred Five l!GUARD AND TACKLE" ......,.,.,..,..,. 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.

I'11 rummage in Chinese bazaars And buy a silk brocade, Or Chinese rug of blue and gold, The fairies must have made. I've dreamed of a green oasis, Where sparkling pools are seen, Reflecting men in flowing robes, And palms of emerald green. Then when I tire of Southern climes I'l1 sail the Seven Seas, Beyond the coast of Africa Where blows the tropic breeze. Hawaii calls across the deep, With music and fragrant flowers, 1,11 sit beneath the moon and stars, Be swayed by magic powers. Then o'er the waves I'11 sail again To a land that's calling me, To sunny California, Where my heart will always beg Where the fragrant springtime blossoms Are a brighter, richer hue, Where the rustic gold of autumn Makes fairyland come true. -Eleanor Mittenvnazer 11A One Hundred Twenty nzne +HHw "GUARD AND TACKLE,, wM'N i n Stepping Stones S GALEN fPOTTER,S One Hundred Dollar Tirize Ticture S l A Spring Morn As harbinger of summer, dawns the morn: The sky with many a snowy cloud is fleckedg The fields with dewy flowers are now bedeckedg Nature has left behind her garments worn- Those mem'ries of the winter. Sweet stories ' By each breeze are told of new-born glories: The wild, fresh' hyacinth, the woodsy star, And spicy mint in sweet confusion are.

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.
