In their hearts is the fire of endeavor, In their eyes is the light of courage. They have learned to honor the great of the nation, VVho, in their wisdom and in their devotion to duty, Have nurtured the growth of the stalwart Republic. The blood-stained fields of France have shown them The power of Right, The beauty of Service, The glory of Sacriice. In their hearts is the Dream of the Future, The Dream of the Brotherhood of Man. They are coming, O America, To fashion the fabric of the New Age, To build the Temple of the New Democracy. They, the Youth of our Land, are the Hope of America, And through Her, the Hope of the IVorld. C. E. M Brhiraiinn Mrs. Susan M. Dorsey was appointed Superintendent of Schools of Los Angeles, California, to succeed Dr. Albert Shiels upon his resignation in the late fall of the year nineteen nineteen. This choice was particularly suitable as Mrs. Dorsey had for seven years served in the capacity of Assistant Sup- erintendent and was thoroughly conversant with the policies of the system and the exacting duties of the office. . Nor had her knowledge of school affairs in this city been confined to that of superintendence. For years Mrs. Dorsey was not only Vice-Principal of Los Angeles High School acting as principal in the absence of that official- but she received valuable training as an instructor in the ranks, having been for some time amember of the teaching force of the same school. She was graduated from Vassar with honors at an early age and served her first appreticeship in the school-room as teacher in that institution. Mrs. Dorsey has followed the progress of events in the educational World with keen enthusiasm and has lent her broad experience to such bodies as the California Teachers Association, Southern Section, of which she was at one time president, and the Council of Education in whose affairs she has taken a very active part. She is a member of the VVoman's University Club of Los Angeles, the Vassar Society and the Phi Beta Kappa. To Mrs. Dorsey, whose example of rare stability of purpose and rich accomplishment is an inspiration to the youth of her city, we, the students of Jefferson High School, dedicate this our Annual of Winter and Summer ,20. four : Q w J I J - ,-Q J5..+m. Jfwbc-,,,4 ,Y L.,........... 3...--.Yi-in Hnratinnal Flraining The vocational depart- ment of Jefferson High School is largely indebted for its extension to Miss Carey. She believes thor- oughly in vocational training and is in touch with its every phase. With her sympa- thetic viewpoint she is able to bring the .student to the Work, the to the Stu- dent. She herself is actively engaged inifithe part-time teaching recently begun in the city. Vocational training at Jef- ferson is emerging from the stage of experimentation and is entering the field of successful accomplishment. It is through the untiring efforts of Miss .Carey that this has been achieved. In the evolution of society from the baser to the better, the various ac- tivities of life, whether in play or in labor, constantly undergo change. No stage of development, however efficient or satisfying today, can be considered permanent. Our unfolding humanity demands institutions that are not static, but capable of adapting themselves to rapidly advancing ideas. Educational institutions have responded, though somewhat tardily, to these changing demands. At Hrst purely academic, appealing only to persons of leisure, culture and wealth. The schools have gradually broadened their curricula to include the technical and practical in order to prepare earnest and eager men and women to do the work of the world in the most efficient way possible, and at the same time to enlarge their vision, to make them masters of their trade, not slaves. When, in the middle of the twentieth century, instruction in sloyd was offered in the schools of Sweden, an innovation occurred which established a new era in education. Since then many additional courses of a practical nature have been introduced. Thinkers in the industrial and educational fields have seen the necessity of trained hands as well as trained minds. The work of the world is not performed now in the primitive way in which it was done until fifty years ago. The marvelous development of labor-saving de- vices has produced a new kind of society. Instead of having shoemakers, blacksmiths and cabinet-makers, each one of whom produces a complete ar- ticle, we have thousands of individuals employed under one management and nine engaged in doing only a minute part of the complete process. This division of labor has been effective in normal times in the rapid production of com- modities, but it has been defective in that it has not resulted in the develop- ment of skilled all-around men. Society demands that something be done to counteract this defect. This is the challenge of today in the educational field. This is the chal- lenge that Jefferson High School is trying to meet. To this end vocational courses have been introduced for both boys and girls. These are divided into two groups-one course requiring two years for completion and one requiring four years, these are respectively: the Mechanical Arts and the College and Normal Preparatory courses. The department of Home Economics is essentially for girls, and offers work in cooking, sewing, and millinery, with allied subjects, such as, math- ematics, chemistry, and English. The students in the Home Economics course have two periods a day for cooking to prepare for cafeteria management, and two for sewing, thus being fitted for both domestic and business life. This is a two-year course. Practical work of this sort contributes toward a better home life, con- sequently to a higher social order. The courses especially adapted to boys are the machine and auto shops. The work in sheet metal, forge and printing offer practical work in particular lines. What is known as "Shop,' includes work in the regular machine and auto shop, forge, and sheet metal. The students are here given the fundamentals of the machinists' trade, practical work in auto repair, and the making of ar- ticles in the sheet-metal courses. There is an increasing demand for mechan- ics who understand the fundamentals of the trades. The electric course equips the student with the fundamentals of this in- dustry, including ignition and battery work, as well as home and stage light- ing. The course in wood-shop teaches the proper use and care of tools and the construction of furniture and fixtures, and the finishing of project work. The course in printing gives to the student the fundamentals of the trade in generalg acquainting him not only with the work of the compositor or pressman, but with all phases of job and newspaper work. The commercial department offers two one-year courses. The steno- graphic course includes work in shorthand, typewriting. penmanship, arith- metic, business English, adding machine work, mimeographing, filing and office practice. The book-keeping course is like that in stenography except that book- keeping and commercial law takes the place of stenography and mimegraph- ing. This work ,thorouhgly done as it is, is of necessity, rapid and intense. The agricultural course trains students for practical farming. Each stu- dent has a farm on which he works one-half of each day. Work on ranches in summer is secured for those who wish it. Agriculture, Shop Work and Home Economics are under the Smith- Hughes Law. All teachers having charge of applied work'in the vocational department have had extensive experience and know the needs of the indus- trial world. A certificate, not a high school diploma, is given to those who complete any of these courses. ten fy eleven EDWIN RICHARD SORENSON A member of jefferson High School faculty from September 11, 1918 to February 16, 1920.

The students have their share of honors and because of the number fell below sixty-one were entitled to only one Ephebian member- Alfred Fisher. Several other students were close seconds. Names of all of those who stand for efficiency in many lines would be attempting a grave task, yet a few stand out for scholarship and leadership in our small community. George Stenquist, the president of the class, gave us the following names: Leo Sawyer, one of the editors of the Monticellan, has been Student Body President, editor of the Jeffersonian, captain of R. O. T. C. Sidney Chambers Council Member. Allen Cohn, Philomathian president. Evalyn Cunningham, Vice President Class W '2O. Frona Edmondson, Secretary Student Body. Morris Epstein, -Ieffersonian Staff. Alfred Fisher, Vice President of Student Body. Harold Fleischer, Monticellan Staff. Edna johnson, Secretary of Student Body. Ida Morrison, Monticellan Staff. Nettie Stein, Jeffersonian and Monticellan Staff. James Quaglino. Yell Leader of Student Body. Lyla Thomas, Vice President Study Body, President Girls' League. Charles Ueche, R. O. T. C. honors. Frank Zeigler, Monticellan Staff. Fourteen members of the class will do post graduate work at jefferson. The following plan to enter college or university the coming semester: Gladys Chollman, Fern Hiner, Harold Fleischer, Mary Pate, Bertha Fox, Edith Rohmberg, Olga Helhoff, Norma Riedeman, Helen Heyser, Irene Rit- ter, Edith Rosensweig. Thirteen will go into business of some sort and the rest are uncertain as to their future career. D Several of the class of XV'2'O have shown marked ability along dramatic lines, having taken prominent parts in the school plays. In fact, this is a live class with a record to be surpassed by few classes. The Ieifersonian has well said that the presentation of diplomas is a "Star', act in the lives of these students. This class promises to be a valuable asset to the Alumni, to do big things for the school and the community. They have shown themselves efficient along so many lines that we may safely say that they have talent. They will furnish business, professional, industrial and domestic men and women. Nor would we overlook the artistic lines, as several are either ar- tists or musicians. They are real Democrats-admirers and followers of our great ideal Thomas jefferson. None have really brought censure on them- selves or their school, and thus with only a positive record for good, what can we not hope from their inHuence from now on? eighteen Qlltmn E Sv 'EH The members of S' 20 are both glad and sorry to bid farewell to their Alma Mater. They are happy to know that they have successfully com- pleted their courses, but sorry to leave friends and school life behind. The graduating class of S' 20 was the B 9 class when the Jefferson was started in 1916 and is the first class to complete four years of work at this school Of the original class of four years ago about ten are left to graduate, while the remainder, sixty-two in all, came from intermediate school in their tenth year. This is the largest group of students graduat- in from Jefferson, with the exception of the class graduating in the summer of 1919, which was a combination of the W' 19 and S '19 classes. VVith the graduation of this class, jefferson loses many of her most valuable students. Two Student Body presidents, one Boy's vice-president, two Yell leaders, one candy counter manager, a president of the Southern California Debating League, and Who's Who president, a Trail Club pres- ident, a Latin Club president, three Ieffersonian editors and ten staff members, one Monticellan editor and eight staff members, five debaters, one basket ball captain, seven R. O. T. C. commissioned officers, ten Who's Who mein- bers, one Boys' Glee Club president, one Girls' Cvlee Club president, and a glee club accompanist, to say nothing of many Glee Club and Orchestra members. The class colors are green and white. These colors are carred out in the caps which the seniors wear, the girls with green and white tam-o-shanters, and the boys with over-seas caps of the same colors. On the front is a green HS' 20." The caps which made their apearance in November, are useful as a guide to the omnipotent Seniors for by noticing the caps one could tell a Senior blocks away. Under the direction of the officers of the Philomathian Society the Seniors helped in several Aud calls and pay assemblies. After four years of high school life the class of S' 20 has only the best of feelings for their fellow students, the faculty and Student Body as awhole. To class advisor, Miss Hanson, each member would express gratitude for her willingness to help at any time, no matter how large or how small the difficulty. S' The class of S 'ZO goes into the world striving to live up to the high ideals of Jefferson and endeavoring always to be a credit to our dear Alma Mater. nineteen Pate, Mary Marcy, Gazella VVekell, Eugene 1?i9tJ2911,a1,d+ Q 'X Hed, Esther Allen, Ruth Mayes, Cleopatra N twenty 4 , Stein, Nettie Riedeman, Norma Fleisher, Harold Stewart, Curtis LF Sommers, Goldie Rhomberg, Edith Shmutzler, Eleanor twenty-one Y 1 Cunningham, Evalyn Vlfatkins, Pauline Epstein, Morris Cohn, Allen Hiner, Fern Chollman, Gladys Chambers, Sidney twenty-two -nr Danner Mabel Powfgrs, Martha Chung, Anna Barrow, Edna Zeigler, Frank Warino, Gladys Rozenzweig, Edlth twenty-three uf.. , Stenquist, George Fisher, Alfred ' Uecke, Charles johnson, Edna Gregory, Rosa Quaglino, james Hfzlhoff, Olga. twenty-four Wu?"

The work of The Monticellan staff is done, and the finished product is in your hands-the Annual for 1920. The publishing of this book has cost us much work and worry, but if you, the members of the Student Body of jefferson, are pleased and proud of your Monticellan, we, the members of tl1e staff, are a thousand-fold repaid. The publishing of this book has been no easy task. Many times, when overwhelmed with difficulties, it seemed as if we must give up in despair. only to be urged and helped onward by Miss Bigelow and Miss Xllhitman. They have had the general supervision of the publishing of this bookg suggesting new features, smoothing out difficulties, and giving unselfishly of their time and labor that it might be a success. Had it not been for their unceasing efforts The M onticellan would not have appeared. For this reason they should receive not only the sincere thanks of the staff but also the gratitude of the entire Student Rody. Vx'e would not forget other members of the Faculty Committee. Miss Dowling. as English critic. we wish to thank for her careful work in securing and correcting poems and stories. Mr. Everett. as faculty business manager, has been indespensable. A So, it is by the cooperation of staff, faculty advisers, Student Body, and faculty that we are able to present to you your Monticellan for 1920, It is the ambition of many boys to become mechanics of some sort: shown by their interest in every kind of machineryg this is sometimes evident in mere boyhood in the love of mechanical toys, then early school-days are a pleasure in so far as they bring to the boy work in mechanical lines. Grammar school often proves a bore to this type of child until he l:1f1ClS that the high school will offer him special work along those lines that he loves. Then he wants to go to school. He is contented and wants to finish a high school course. The vocational work at jefferson High School is of the kind to appeal to this sort of boyg the kind who is ready and anxious to quit school and "go to work." The work has been a decided success here, if the large numbers tak- ing the courses indicate success. ' In order to give the students of Jefferson an understanding of th voca- tional work as it is carried on here, the Monticellan staff has taken especial care to explain it with pictures and write-ups. They hope that the many readers of the book may have gained information regarding the school and been entertained as well. We trust that young students who are in an uncertain frame of mind re- garding their future and do not know where and how to fmd the Work that they like, will find their way to Jefferson High Schoolg select just the course that they like best, and be contented members of a happy student-body. forty-jffve . -J-.,,Y.,W,.

"Well, Allison, I'm just as positive that this is the right onell' The two young men sat there, eyeing each other doubtfully. Before them lay the object of the dispute, if dispute it could be termed, in the form of two serenely beautiful country roads. You see, these two young men, looking so well at ease on their large, prancing horses, were the best of pals. They were both collectors for separate firms, large firms in the thriving city of Los Angeles, which at that time boasted a population of almost' fifteen thousand. Together they had started out, together they had made their collections, and together they had started to return, when there had appeared before them a fork in the road. john Allison said, "The right fork is the one !" A And Billy Haines replied, '6No! The left fork is the one." So they sat there for some time, talking, arguing, debating. Suddenly Billy cried, "Wiell, Allison, we can't stay here all day! Tt's about twelve-thirty now, and with some good riding We ought to make Los Angeles by eight. However. if we stick around here much longer we'll prob- ably find ourselves wandering around among the Redwoods by eight, m'nus our collections, our valuables, and our horses. You know, yourself, that this country is honey-combed with every kind of desperado, from a Greaser downf, "Yes, I know," answered john thoughtfully: "but what are we going to do? XVe'll both have to take the same road, and if you insist that that's the right one, and l insist that this is the right one, what kind of a compromise can we make?" f'NVe,ll each have to take the road that we think is right," announced Billy decisively. "Besides," he amended, as if to soothe his conscience for having spoken to his friend in that tone of voice. "if a bunch of Greasers did hold us up, could two of us do any more than one? 'l'hey'd get away with twice as much stuff, that's all' So they eyed each other solemnly. each being wise enough to see the truth in the statement. Then came the parting: a farewell handshake, a friendly hgood bye," and, a few minutes later, much hat-waving. Thus they parted, these two friends, each taking the road he thought was the right one. And so we shall leave Billy Haines, cantering peacefully along the left fork of the road, in order to take up the story of john Allison's adventures. -, John rode along thoughtfully. After all, he was rather sorry that he had been so stubborn about the road: perhaps it would have been better to have foriy-seven ...,.,p.,.... --- -- gone with his chum along the wrong one. If anything should happen to Billy Haines he would never forgive himself, such a thing as "anything happening" to himself, however, never entered his mind. Slowly the hours dragged outg first had come the heat of afternoon, then the setting of the sun, and now dusk had fallen, but still there was no sign of life anywhere. The moon came out and smiled down on the weary young man and on his weary horse. It was seven o'clock by his watch. and he judged he had traveled at least thirty miles. Had he been on the right road he would have been within sight of Los Angeles, that fact was clear. Then he must be on the wrong road. Too late now to turn back, he might as well ride on to the nearest town, and the next morning, greatly refreshed, he could start on the return journey to Los Angeles. It was an hour or so later that he came upon a little town, which, to his weary spirit, might have been a little bit of heaven. "Hello, stranger," he called to a man lounging against a nearby building. "Is there a place around here where I can put up for the night?" "VVellf' drawled the man, eyeing him with interest, "ye might try Benderis Hotel. If they ain't full up, I guess they'll take ye." And he motioned up the street to "the hotelf, VVhen john came nearer to it he could not suppress a smile, hotel, indeed! Still, if they could furnish him with a place to sleep. a bit to eat, and a stable for his horse, what cared he that the two-story building resembled a shack rather than a hotel? He knocked. The door was Hung wide: unconsciously john clutched the side of the door for support. The smiling matron, of doubtful age, who was standing before him, was a veritable Amazon. Now john had always con- sidered himself tall, which, after all, was not an unusual thought in a young man of a little over six feet. But here was a woman who towered head and shoulders above him. XVas it strange that he grasped for support the first thing with which his hand came in contact? Could he stay there for the night? Certainly. There were still a few rooms vacant. He must come right in and wash up. Of course supper was over long ago, but she could find enough food to keep him from starving. His horse would be well taken care of, she could vouch for that. Would he like to go to his room before he had supper? Very well. So he followed her up the stairs and along the hall towards his room. The upper story of the house had originally consisted of two large rooms, one on either side of the hall, but when Mrs. Bender had decided to turn the house into a "hotel," she had had four partitions installed in each room. "Presto, change!" There were now ten rooms where there had originally been two. Being a good housekeeper, Mrs. Bender had naturally been frugal: therefore the partitions were not only very thin, but they went only three-quarters of the way up, the other quarter, between the partition and the ceiling, being open. The room into which Mrs. Bender led him, if room it could be called, contained a small iron bed. a chair, and what was apparently meant to be a washstand. John absently wondered how they had manged to crowd everything into such narrow limits. Having duly washed his face and combed his hair, he proceeded down to the dining room. A girl was arranging his supper on a small table in one corner of the room. John gazed up at her in wide-eyed amazement. To say forty-eight that she was a large girl would have been putting it mildly. That she'was an exact replica of her mother will perhaps do better to convey the idea. "I think I remember you, Allison," said she shyly, Hwerenit you collecting over in Bigburg a few days ago? You see I was over there visit- ing," she went on, "and it ain't often that I forget a face? "VVhy, yes," replied John, HI think I did collect in Bigburg a few days ago." f'VVell, Sir, if you want anything that ain't on the table," she said, smiling down at John, !'don't be bashful. just holler for itf' "Thanks," he answered, "but this meal is fit for a king, and I can't begin to tell you what it looks like to a chap who is half starved. If I should ask for anything more than this, I'd be an awfully ungrateful sort of a fellow, I think !" . 'fOh," laughed the girl, blushing at his praise of the food, "that ain't nothing at all. But if you donit need me, I guess I'll go out on the porch. You see," she added, "my young man's waitin' for me." f'Sure! Go ahead," cried john, "I won't need anything more." It was late that evening when he retired. He smiled as he recalled the girl's fiance, a strapping fellow, a few inches taller than the girl. He sat down on the chair, preparatory to removing his boots. Suddenly his face grew" white, his heart almost stopped beating. His collections! Oh, what a fool he had been. Vvhy had he not thought of it before? With trembling hands he unfastened the saddle bag. What a relief, the money was un- touched! However, it had given him a pretty good scare, five hundred dollars would, of course, mean a small fortune to the fellow who could get it. And, in that part of the country, where live dollars would have sufficed to rid oneself of all of onels enemies, would any favoritism be shown to a man who carried five hundred dollars around with him? Hardly. John realized that he was very tired. It was mighty good to have a bed to sleep in, even if it was miles away from Los Angeles. About Billy Haines he had no doubts. Lucky Billy! He had probably reached Los Angeles, had turned in his collections, and was fast asleep by this time. Still john was glad he had found shelter. f'VVe got to get the money if welre ever going to have a house of our own .... VVell, what if we do have to kill .... ?" The manls voice was emphatic, the girlls reply was inaudible. "But you know, kid, that we got to have the money! Why you ain't got no right to let your feelinis enter into what's a pure business matter !" John unconsciously opened his mouth, and then forgot to close it. The voice was that of Miss Bender's fiance. The words were whispered, and John caught only a part of what the fellow said. "Yes, Mary, you ain't a kid no longer. Act sensible, Honey, look at the money you'll get! VVe'll let 'im die quick, it won't hurt much, and you do need the money so badf, It was the motheris voice this time. John pulled out his handkerchief and wiped his beaded brow. These terrible people were planning to murder him for the money they knew must be hidden in his saddle-bags. He pulled off his boots and tiptoed over to the partition. Thank goodness, it was thin and did not reach the ceiling. Though they were speaking in whispers he could hear a large part of what they said. The mother and the lover were apparently trying to convince the girl that is was perfectly all right to kill. ' forty-Mine ' W'ell, there was only one thing to do, decided john. He locked the door, quietly lifted the wash-stand and tip-toed over to the door with it, then he carried the chair over and placed it on top of the stand. If the worst came to the worst, this would not make a bad barricade. W7ith his pistol in readiness, he sat down on the bed. There would be no sleep for him that night. And yet, he was so tired and sleepy! If he could just lie down for a few minutes, surely that would not hurt. He had already decided not to go to sleep: so, of course, he would not. Thus he lay, half awake and half asleep. Then he started up with a half-startled, half-horrified expression on his face. Suddenly he remembered a gruesome story he had often heard during his childhood of two huge, amazonic women, who, with the aid of the great husband of one, had suc- ceeded in murdering, and then burying, in both garden and cellar, a dozen or more of the travelers who had stopped at their inn for lodging. That that had happened away off in Kansas, years and years ago, made absolutely no difference. Thank goodness he had been born under a lucky star! lt was only by luck that he had escaped being murdered at the table that night. That those horrible women in Kansas had considered "variety the spice of lifel' had been quite apparent. Their methods for murdering people had varied. But whether they had placed their guest at a table, with his back towards a curtained part of the wall, and then stabbed him through the curtain, of whether they had let him sleep on a folding' bed which, during the night, at a specific time, had turned completely over, and permitted the occupant to drop down, down, down into the depths of that terrible cellar, the result was the same. They had always received what they wanted. and that was money. At the very thought of such a thing poor john leaped to his feet. Of course this bed was not a folding one: but, nevertheless, this little iron bed might be nailed to a trap door, which would, at a certain time, unlock and spill him into some place, how horrible he could only imagine. So he retired to a corner of the room, his pistol in his hand, his cartridge- belt and saddle-bags beside him. The Benders were still whispering. He wondered vaguely why they did not stop talking and get to work. f'Kill, kill, kill l' Vilas that all they found to take about? A Dazedly he opened his eyes: the sun was streaming in at the window. He rose 'unsteadily to his feet. How stiff his body was! At his feet lay his gun, his cartridge-belt. and his saddle-bags. Strange that he should be sitting on the floor when there was a perfectly good bed to sleep in. Then he remembered. For, you see. the inevitable had happened, when Youth is sleepy, Youth needs must have sleep. For the second time john unfasteden the saddle-bags with trembling Hngersg and for the second time he sighed in relief. The money had not been touched. When he appeared at the breakfast table that morning, he found that he was a trifle late. The other boarders eyed him with interest. Mrs. Bender beamed down at him from her place at the head of the table, and Mary llender placed a chair for him near her mother. "Did you sleep good last night, Mr. Allison?" inquired Mrs. Render kindly. "Oh, certainly!" replied John, sarcastically. fifty "I was afraid we might have kept you up by our chatter," went on Mrs. Bender, apparently not noticing john's tone of voiceg "for, you see, Mary and Ed are going to be married soon, and I thought it best to have half the pigs killed. They really belong to Mary, because her poor father willed fem. to her on his death-bed: but l told her she'd get enough money from their sale to help build and furnish a nice little home for her and Ed after theylre marriedf' "Oh!', cried john in astonishment. "But, you know, Mary is still young," continued the good woman, "and she objected very much to having the pigs killedf' And Mrs. Bender smile-il indulgently upon the blushing Mary. A That night, when john had arrived safely in Los Angeles, he was still smiling at the little Htragi-comedy.', For it is a sin to kill a human being, yet human beings seem to consider it anything but a sin to kill a pig. A day or two later, Bill Haines arrived in Los Angeles, dirty and be- draggled, minus his collections and valuables, and riding on a borrowed horse. But that he had happened to meet some Greasers, and that they had relieved him of all the things which had appealed to their fancies, after strenuous objections on his part, was, after all, only fate. "And there's no getting away from fate," Billy ended ruefully. "But l wonder," objected john, Uwhether. after all, it was fate." HELEN PALMER. Glhrinimaa Bag in Elapan On Christmas morning 1918. our ship dropped anchor at Yokohama, japan. Wie had been at sea fourteen days, so were anxious to get on land again. The entire crew was granted a three-days' leave, of which all took advantage. After spending a few hours in Yokohama we decided to take a trip to Tokio, fourteen miles by train. Reaching Tokio we were left standing in front of the market district. The stores on each side of the narrow streets were run on the cafeteria plan, and seemed to be well crowded at all times. XVe next visited the Buddha Temple. Here the people came to worship all day long. They approached a sort of altar, where they would kneel and pray, swaying their bodies with arms outstretched upward and down- ward to the ground. As soon as one left, another would take his place. All brought offerings, which were thrown into a large container. After our visit to the temple we went to the church yard, where statues of great men of japan stood. It was of interest to us, to see among these the monument of our own Commodore Perry. From there we went to the Emperor's palace. It was surrounded by water for protection. For this reason we could see it from a distance only. These few visits brought to a close a pleasant as well as an unusual day, and we returnedfto our ship for the night. This ended our first day's leave. GUSTAF CHILSTROM. fifty-one "- 'vmllvy -- A Grip in iinmpgi anh Hmanuiun Due to a misunderstanding, five Americans who had missed the train for Pompeii, started, with a special guide, by way of electric for Pompeii. After spending all the time they could spare viewing old Pompeii, they had lunch, while the guide secured transportation for the Vesuvius trip. As the only train had departed, the guide, in expectation of a liberal tip, secured horses. Starting from the foothills about two p.m., they found the ride over the lava-covered hills very interesting. The lava was so loose at places that it was hard for the horses to get traction. We could not stay long at the top, both because the fumes were too strong, and also because there was a rumbling below which indicated activity. On the return trip we had an ex- cellent view of the Bay of Naples. VVe all decided that we had had a much better and more interesting trip than we would have had, had we taken the train. GEORGE A. McDERMOTT. San illllarinu Most of you have heard of San Marino, the smallest republic and one of the most ancient of states. The legislature consists of sixty members elected for life, selected equally from the ranks of nobles, citizens, and peasants. Two presidents are chosen by the senate every six months. Two secretaries of state and two legal functionaries are the other government officials. This little republic is situated nine miles southwest of the ancient city of Rimini on a great rocky mountainous site about 2500 feet high, precipitous on all sides, with intervening dense forests and valleys of fertile land. The capital of the same name was founded in 441 and is accessible by but one road. It is surrounded by great walls and has three forts. The manufacture of silk is the chief industry of the town. Many of the buildings are stately and remarkably massive in structure, including the governor's palace. There are several schools, museums, a theater, and a town hall. Two immense cisterns provide the public with water. In order to visit San Marino it is necessary to go to Rimini, the nearest railroad town, and thence by stage. On my arrival I was informed that the auto-bus had left. I therefore had no hope of reaching my destination that day except by private conveyance. As this would have cost me ten dollars or more, I concluded to proceed on foot. I passed out through the southwest Rimini gate and proceeded quite serenely over good roads thru fertile valleys till I approached the border of the republic. In this vicinity an Italian sentinel accosted me, and. as I did not respond readily to the challenge, he summoned a patrol. I then presented my passport and also showed them that I held the rank of an Italian army captain. They responded with great courtesy 'and bestowed upon me many favors. On reaching the outskirts of the capital city I was weary and anxious to rest. yet I was told that the state buildings and the hotel I sought were about a mile farther up the mountain. I trudged on and, reaching my destination, occupied the uppermost room at the hotel, where I could look out over the whole country of San Marino. After visiting all the places of interest and calling up the president and other public officials I departed for Rimini in a big auto stage. A. M. BROOKS.

Yet I very soon heard the clicking of chipped ice against the sides of a water pitcher obediently delivered at the door. Glafeggx Init I was going on night shift. It was almost eleven o'clock, raining and very dark. - The first guard at the outer gate to the Station seemed not to recognize me in my rain coat and sou'wester. I was. halted. In my astonishment I smiled before I could make a reply. The guard, recognition brightening his face, exclaimed, NA-ha! Ameri- came!" Then the second helmeted one, standing next: 'fMais oui-Croix Rouge !" "Mm-m-Cafe au laitll' offered the third. VV'e all laughed, and after profuse apologies I was permitted to pass. "Cafe au lait" remained the password for me ever after. illirrgllaila Bright and early one morning in September, 1916 the new students con- gregated on the rock piles just outside the Academic Building of the jef- ferson High Scholl. The teachers stood in the doorways and smilingly in- formed them that there would be an assembly in Room 209. At ten-thirty school was dismissed for the simple reason that the water system was not. yet complete, and the new students, although they were a fine, jolly crowd, insisted that they would stand for no 'dry law" being pass- ed on Jefferson. So there was no real schol until the third day. Then the boys and girls, with great dignity but with twinkling eyes, sat on the Hoors of their recitation rooms. The lunch counter, with a student in charge, stood near the north door of the Academic building. Here the new students were served with a dainty luncheon of wienies, beans and ice cream. Had one chanced to peer into Room 218, he would have found that the dear lady teachers, casting aside their dignity, were glorying over a delicious repast of beans and wienies eaten from a rough board table. The library was in Room ll8, but for the first two months there were neither books nor book-stacks. However, it did not take long to remedy this, each morning the faculty and the pupils staggered to school completely hidden up huge piles of books and magazines. Miss Bigelow, with Miss Locke and Miss Schmitt as assistants, acted as librarian. fifty-three Because of the unfinished condition of the Science Building, it was im- possible to use it for the first few monthsg thus the Academic Building was both center and cicumference. The offices were in Room 114. This was di- vied by a partition into an inner office, where Mr. Fulton, as Principal, and Miss Putnam, as Vice-Principal, presided, and an outer office in charge of Miss Labrie, as Secretary. Miss Grey, as atendance officer, was tucked away in Room 107.

ETTA GORDON, A'9. fif ty-six X N EPI-IEBIANS FROM S 81 XV '20 Uhr Ephehian Snririg The Ephebian Society of the high schools of Los Angeles was organized about three years ago by former superintendent of schools, Dr. Albert Shiels. -, Although an honorary society, its chief object is constant labor for uni- versal betterment through active civic effort, with the avowed purpose of dignifying leadership, scholarship and character and encouraging supreme loyalty to school and country. The Ephebian Society was originated in ancient Greece, hundreds of years ago, and each member now as in the Grecian days, takes the following Oath of Alegiance to the State. "VVe will never bring disgrace to this, our city, by any act of dishonesty or cowardice, or never desert our suffering comrades in the ranksg we will iight for the ideal or sacred thought of the city, both alone and with manyg we will revere and obey the city's laws and do our best to incite a like respect in those above us who are prone to annul them or set them at naught, we will strive unceasingly to quicken the public sense of duty. Thus in all these ways we will transmit this city, not only not less, but far greater and more beautiful than it was transmitted to usf' The members of the Ephebian Society are selected from the high schools of the city in the proportion of one member to each forty or major fraction thereof in the graduating class. The selection of the members of the society is governed by three quali- fications, scholarship, character and leadership, in all of which the student must excel, of these three scholarship shall receive first consideration.

Leo Sawyer, Student Body President of XV20, was largely responsible for the founding of this society. The constitution was presented and passed on Friday, December 12, 1919. All students in the Senior H and Senior A Classes are members of this organization. The purpose of the Philomathian Society is to encourage brotherhood and sociability between the Senior B and Senior A classes and, to promote talent in dramatics, music, debating and athletics. This society has already proven itself indispensable to the school by pro- viding excellent programs for the Student Body. The constitution states that each term the society will be responsible for two pay and two free Maud" calls. In addition to this the Philomathian Society takes charge of the advertising of all the plays. The lack of objectionable class rivalry, at Tefferson, between the Senior A's and B's is due largely to the good work of the Philomathian Society. This organization also endeavors to bring the Alumni and the Student Body in closer touch. Each year .a "Philomathian Day" is given, on which occasion, the members of the society are freed from classes and meet with the Alumni, and a general good time is enjoyed. The society is in charge of the 'lGala Dayu which is a sort of Held meet where all classes compete in various events. The officers are Lee Payne. President1 Mary Fellows, Vice-Presidentg Edna Oson, Secretaryg Fannie Goldberg, Treasurer. V 45. I fifty-nine , i Ellie mlm ii mlm The Who's VVho is the honor society of the school, and is made up of those who rank high in scholarship. The organization is composed of two classes of members-active and associate. Those students receiving "A" in four solids for two consecutive semesters are the active members. Pupils receiving "A" in four solids for one term, and who lapse to three "A,s" in solids the following term are associate members. If a member is excluded from the Society, "A" in four solids is necessary for reinstatement. - Ellie Qnnnr Svnrivig Name-The Who's XVho.

The scope of activities covered by the or- ganization has increased with the phenominal growth of the school. The executive officers are the president, the boys' and girls' vice-presi- dents, the secretary and the yell leader. All are elected by the direct vote of the students. The law-making body is the Council, presided over by the president, while the executive body is the Self-Government. The latter, under the re- spective vice-presidents, sees to the enforcing of the laws. The officers elected for the VV'20 term were: Leo Sawyer, president, Lyla Thomas, girls' vice-presidentg Alfred Fisher, boys' vice-president, Edna john- son, secretary, and Irving Hamilton, yell leader. The officers serving during the S'2O term were: James Hubbell, presi- dent, Velda Bowman, girls' vice-presidentg Orrin Barnes, boys' vice-presi- dent, Sophia Forsythe, secretary, and Lloyd Ringland, yell leader. The never-say-die spirit 'for which jefferson is famous, may, indeed be creidted to the efficiency and good work of the past executives of the Student Body Organization. PRESS CLUB sixty-three Mraz Gllnh The Press Club is composed of students of journalism and members of the Jeffersonian staff. The purpose of the organization is to promote an inter- est in newspaper work. Monthly meetings are held at which the members are addressed by reporters from city dailies on practical phases of journalism. The Press Club takes charge of a general assembly each term, this year sponsoring the Jefferson Birthday Celebration when Proffessor Lawrence Lowrey of U S C addressed the student body. A get acquainted party and trip to a newspaper plant were other Press Club activities. The officers are:President, Lester Greeng Vice-President, Irving Ham- iltong Secretary and Treasurer, Juanita Roth. , BOYS' SELF GOVERNMENT GIRLS' SELF GOVERNMENT G sixty-fam' Ellie Girlz' Spit' Chuernment By the co-operation of the students, the Girls' Self-Government has al- ways been a success. The rules which the girls have made have been for the betterment of Jefferson. The members of the organization plan rather to prevent the breaking of rules than to punish those who break them. With Lyla Thomas as president, the Girls' Self-Government was able to do some good work last semester. At the beginning of the term a set of rules was drawn up, and a special auditorium call was held so that the girls could know and abide by the new rulings. Under the supervision of the Girls' Self-Government, a room was opened at noon as a social hall for the girls. The representatives were called together once each week, and problems were discussed. The girls were assigned special beats and were active in en- forcing the rules made by the organization. Velda Bowman is the president for this term and has done much to up- hold and further the Jefferson standards. Uhr Mug ilirague The main object of the Girl's League is to create the spirit of friendship among the girls of the school and to help them become acquainted with school affairs. When this organization was started, a secretary and a cabinet member were elected from each classroom. This has been the custom up to the present term. However, since the school has grown to be so large, it was decided that one member from each classroom should be elected. Last term the Girl's League, with Tabatha Goodman as President and Miss Locke as adviser, accomplished many things. A number of small parties and one large one were given. The latter wfas a Halloween party on the afternoon of October 30. The program consisted of an Apple Dance, a Walnut Dance, a one-act play, a reading, and two piano solos. sixty-five At the same, peanuts were sold, the profit going into the Girls' League fund. With this money the girls' rest room was furnished. This semester jean jones is president and is planning many things to be accomplished in the future. A series of small parties will be given to help the new girls become acquainted with the old. Every girl is a member of the league and should consider herself an active member for the good of the league. ' MAE DIXON, W' 21. an aunt The Y. M. C., A. called the Hi-Y Club, was organized about one year ago with a membership of Fifteen. It now has about twenty-five members. The boys meet each Thursday at the Y. M. C. A. rooms at Seventh and Hope Streets. Here with Hi-Yls from other High Schools, they discuss ques- tions of interest in High School life. ' After supper, served in the cafe, they have a social evening with music and speaking. Speakers from the outside frequently entertain the boys. Dr. Brougher recently gave them an evening, while Bryant Washburn is expected in the future. The jefferson officers are: President-Julius McCabe. Vice-President-George Metzger. Secretary-Treasurer-Morris Cohn. Jeitkrnnnl-M. QI. A. Last October the Y. VV. C. A. at jefferson High School numbered twenty- five active membersg at present, only ten. While this looks like a decrease in interest. it is in reality not true as the lapsing is only in numbers. The ten girls are most active, meeting twice a month at the Y. XV. C. A. rooms on Hill Street with girls from other High Schools. Here they discuss various Y. W. C. A. activities, have supper at six o'clock, and then enjoy a social hour. The social hour includes musical entertainments, short plays, and dancing. The Y. VV. C. A. conference at Pomona this spring was attended by the following representatives from jefferson: Lucile Houston, Elizabeth Ovsey, Helen Vlfashburn, Tabatha Goodman, and Miss Irvine. At the Festival held May 17, at the Y. W. C. A., our girls gave a dance and a novelty party, and, best of all, sold Howers, netting a considerable sum of money. So we are superior in quality if not in quantity. F1112 57113111 Qlluh The Spanish Club has been reorganized under the supervision of Miss Katherine Kent. The officers of the club are: Morris Cohn, presidentg Louis Fisch, vice-president, Paul Pink, secretary. The club is planning to entertain the Student Body and Faculty soon with some Spanish plays and songs. Members of the club are corresponding with boys and girls in Spain, to learn the customs and ideas of the children of Spain. This system of correspondence is beneficial, both to the students in Spain who are learning English and also to the students of jefferson who are learning Spanish. MORRIS COHN. sixty-six l The jeffersonian, the weekly paper of Jefferson High School, is now three years old, being just one year younger than the school itself. The growth of the paper has kept pace with that of the school. During the past year it has been enlarged to a six column sheet, and now compares favora- bly in size and content with any of the high school weeklies. The staff for the year is given below.

The other bulletin board is being used entirely for pictures, posters, and book lists. It has been estimated that of the twenty-seven hundred books which the library contains, from one hundred to one hundred and thirty books are circulated daily: also that at least two hundred pupils and teachers use the library for reference every day. From the beginning to the end of every period in the day endless ques- tions as asked by eager Jeffersonites, and answered by the Librarian, such as, "When was the motto 'In God We Trust' first placed on the American coins?', or, "Miss Marsh, how can I find out how to make face cream F" and, "Please tell me how leap year originated." Then, "Can you tell me who said 'Renounce the devil and his works'?', "Miss Marsh, what is the 'Eye of the Baltic'?,' and again, "VVho built the Chinese Wall and how long ago ?" These questions, multiplied by hundreds, give one an idea of the daily work of a librarian. .sixty-eiglzt ' go- .,i., ' M42 9 ff WfQQ Z X A Y nn 'bir 'Q , P-xyvu if ON N ' W? f ' Ns W , 44" "4"'1A 4 A V6 M9 5 , Y V 0 .f ,. ,,f, 1 .,, H! 1- - .QQ -4Q" " -- J I VN ff4 i f ' ,5 2 ' QQ A if A :L ,. f A 4 s ' y N 552 P?-X K X W Q f WM -3 8 9 I "' if A J Y Nu Z' , .

NVEBSTER Teacher of Dramatics "All work and no play makes jack a dull boy," is a saying that few will dispute, and if this is true of jack, Jill is not fundamentally different concern- ing play, at least. The entertainments, which have been a part of our school life at jeffer- son, this year, show our desire to keep both jack and Jill from being dull. These plays, both the one-act and the longer ones seem to have had one idea back of them-that is, to amuse, and yes, amuse in a good healthy fashion. If there has been a lesson to learn in any of them, it has been the lesson of wholesome fun, bubbling with all degrees of laughter, from the quiet, chuckling kind, to the full-throated ringing laughter of youth. Look over the following pages, recall each play as it came in its order, and you will agree that amusement has been the middle name of every one. U Now, the next thing to consider is,-who have been the people that have made these occasions of pleasure possible? Again. you are asked to look over the following pages. You will then be able to determine. These students, masking themselves in "makeup" for the time being, have been the people who have given us all pleasure. They have devoted long hours to practice. -For what? VVhy, to add to the pleasure of others and also for the fun they got out of it for themselves. Some students go home to pleasures found there, others to work to earn money, but these people chose to remain at school and perfect themselves in the many things that go to make a play a success. May we have more of this sort of students at Jefferson who will be willing to devote many long hours to the production of something that will be a pleasure to others. Our aim this year, has been to make the directing of plays professional, to make the acting as nearly professional as possible, to make the producing professional. You, Jefferson, are the judge. NVe hope you have enjoyed your- selves for we have enjoyed ourselves. THE ELOFEMENT OF ELLEN seventy-two Bramatirn giminier 'EH The Seniors of Wfinter 1920 did it. lVhat? Gave a real for-sure three-act play. This memorable event took place on the fifteenth and sixteenth of January last. Indeed it was memorable, for not only was the comedy a very good one and well done, but the financial returns were unbelievable. The title of the farce, 'fThe Elopement of Ellen," had much to do with attracting the large audiences. This great success was due chiefly to the earnest and untiring effort of Miss Ella G. Wfebster, dramatic coach. As regards the story, it dealt with the never-ending problem of new maids and new brides. Maid number one left very informally with a neighboring coachman. No sooner did maid the second fill the vacancy and relieve worry of young housewife than in stepped friend brother to teach the servant girl how to walk in rhythm to Mendelsohns VVedding March. Provoking isn't it? VVell I should say'so, especially when a member of your own tribe takes it upon himself to do the teaching. Evalyn 'Cunningham took the principal part with George Stenquist as the handsome young hero. Charles Uecke played the young husband oppo- site Pauline Wfatkins and Violet Hughes, as the troubled but charming young bride. Dan Vvinters was memorable as the rector chap who fell in love with a dainty girl and was thrust out of it in due time. Libby Wliseman and Bertha Fox portrayed the role of the frivolous young miss admired by all. They were supported by Curtis Stewart. In this play a 'double cast was employed for two of the characters in order to give more students an opportunity to participate. The play was given splendidly and was heartily approved by all who were fortunate enough to attend. Nun Ising-Tgantnrk The second dramatic production of the season was the presentation, by the advanced dramatic classes, of Jerome K. Jeromels enjoyable four-act comedy "The New Lady Bantockfl After having been postponed once, the play was given both on the afternoon and evening of February 5, and on the evening of February 6, with the following cast: ' Rae Shaw Rosalie Ffaulkes Fanny .................. ........,...............................

Vandershoot V Orchestra The Variety Show, given on the afternoon of April twenty-eighth and the evenings of April twenty-ninth and thitieth was, as its name indicates, a varied program. It was a laugh from beginning to end and proved one of the most appreciated entertainments ever offered at Jefferson. Six numbers were presented for the enjoyment of the audience, the first being a tragedy in one act, entitled, "Food" Those taking part were Edward Grimm, Hilda Tetley and Stanley Paulson. The second number was a fantasy called "lColumbine." The students who played the roles in this were Tejas Edwards, Isabelle Chaiken, Kathleen John- son, Joe Lizer and Fred Perske. The post-graduates offered an amusing one-act play called "The Pot- Boilersf' The performers were Nettie Stein, Daniel Wiinters, Lyla Thomas, Edgar Black, Pauline Vlfatkins, Leonard Hilmer and Charles Uecke. 'fTrial by Juryi' was presented by the Glee 'Clubs and Orchestra. The solos were rendered by Hazel Sterner, Velda Bowman, Chauncey Kolts, George Metzger, Charles Uecke, Victor England and Garvyn Reese. The Physical Training Department presented two numbers: One, a -Clown Dance, which met with hearty applause. was given by Julius McCabe, Lloyd Radcliffe, Anthony Hookanson, Daniel VVinters, Fred Perske, Alvin Clause, Roy Henry and Homer Mitchell. The second number was a lovely, graceful Balloon Dance, presented by Etta Gordon, Dorothy Gilbert, Flor- ence Wagner, Ruth VVagner, Alta Holland, Leola Simpson, Maxine Righetti, Vera Warrecker and Ethel Riley. seventy-five f I I W w Munir The music department claims a large measure of appreciation from the faculty and student-body of Jefferson High School. The orchestra of thirty-seven instruments, furnishes music at almost every Assembly and contributes spirit and enthusiasm to each one. There are two Glee Clubs, each having a membership of twenty-Fiveg one composed of boys and one of girls. The Girls' Chorus numbers thirty members and has furnished enter- tainment on Very many occasions. The quintette is made up of flutes and violins. Without music jefferson would be lonesome indeed, especially would the students, who have shown talent and have had a part in our creditable performances, have lost the opportunity which is so easily theirs. These departments are in charge of Miss Stone, who does the orchestra work, Mrs. Edwards, who teaches Harmony, and Mr. Teazle in charge of the R. O. T. C. Band. Music may be taken as a solid. Credit is given to all students taking any of this work. Solid credit is given in Sight Singing B9, Harmony BIO, History of Music Bll and Orchestra. , ' Jefferson has inserted in her curricula a Music Course and already has quite a large enrollment. .vczfcnty-sewn l l 611112 Gbrrhvzira The orchestra, during the term beginning September, 1919, made a fresh start under the leadership of Miss Evelyn A. Stone. The orchestra, as usual, took a leading part in all the entertainments given by the dramatic classes, Senior plays, 'Commencement Exercises, and entertainments given by the music department. The enrollment during the past semester was forty-two, with the fol- lowing instrumentation: Hfteen first violins, eight second violins, oneqbass, three flutes, three saxaphones, six cornets, drums, and piano. The officers were: Director-Miss Evelyn A. Stone. Concert Master-Sam Goodman. Librarian and accompanist-Dorothy Schmidt. Manager-Wlalter Stufrler. MILITARY BAND seventy-eiglzt ' The Jefferson High School R. O. T. C. Band was organized the latter part of last term with Mr. Bert Teazle, prominent cornetist of the city and the instructor of the Manual Arts' High School military band, as bandmaster. The band progressed very rapidly from a mere handful of enthusiastic boys to the enviable "second to none" position on the list of similar city high school organizations. It has performed creditably at theatrical performances, such as vaude- ville, and various other student body assemblies, besides furnishing the marching "time" for military reviews, parades and other ceremonials.. In short, it has become the source of the "music for all occasions" idea at Jefferson. Ellie Zfinga-LQEIPP Glluh Much credit is due Miss Stone for the splendid work accomplished dur- ing the term beginning September, 1919, in reorganizing the Boys' C-lee Club. Since nearly all the old members graduated the preceding term, it was neces- sary to use practically all new material in forming the Glee Club. This being the case. the club was unable to present as many musical programs as usual. The Glee Club sang at several assemblies during the semester, while the combined Glee Clubs gave a Christmas program on the twelfth of De- cember. The Glee Club had a membership of about twenty boys. At the be- ginning of the term, the following officers were elected: Nelson Rigby, presi- dentg james Quaglino, treasurer, Morris McCauley, librarian. Those elected for the second semester were: Glenn Vllilson, president, Julius McCabe, treasurer: Lloyd Ringland, librarian. ' During this semester the combined Glee Clubs presented "The 'Village Blacksmith" and the one-act opera, "Trial By jury," with their usual success. seventy-nine Girlz' QQP Glluh One of the most popular organizations in jefferson is the Girls' Glee Club. Last term twenty-five girls were enrolled. The officers elected were Genevieve Tubbs, president, Catharine Collins, treasurer, Marie Cummins, librarian. As usual, the Glee Club was heard at many programs and assembles. At the big Vaudeville they sang " Mammy's Lullaby", at the Christmas pro- gram they sang "The Angel," and the combined Clubs sang "Lord Most Merciful", at the original program they sang a three-part song composed by Helen Heyser. Besides these numbers, at several times members of the Glee Club sang duets, solos, and quartetts.

GD. CTI. Qiatnrg The conditions governing the Reserve Officers Training -Corp, junior Division are prescribed in General Orders Number 49 War Department 1916. When the United States entered the war, the responsibility of military train- ing of cadets fell upon the states. Adjutant General Borree reported 14,000 cadets in the high schools of California Linder the state control. After the armistice was signed, the United States' hands were untied so that it could resume its control. The R. O. T.

Army, was transferred from 'Vlfashington to Cal- ifornia. His services as a commandant were secured for jefferson High School by the Board of Education. Sgt. VVindsor received his first training at the jefferson Barracks, Mo., about twelve years ago. He enlisted twice for a term of three years each in the artillery. When his second term was out, he enlisted twice again for a term of three years each in the infantry. He is serving his last term here at Jefferson. He has done wonderful work with the R. O. T.

The companies grew very rapidly for a few weeks. The school received 175 rilies, bayonets, scabbards, cart- ridge belts, and complete equipment including woolen blouse, shirt, breeches, spiral puttees and campaign hats for 195 cadets. After the equipment was given out, the fellows changed and exchanged until each one had as good a lit and match as he could get. When exchanges were at a minimum, all the extra equipment was sent back and Sgt. VVindsor sent in a requisition for another supply of equipment for the fellows that had not been fortunate enough to get in on the first issue. The shoes came several months later. J R. O. T. C. OFFICERS The Jefferson R. O. T. C. unit made its first public showing when it participated in the review by General Pershing at Exposition Park in Feb- rurary. The General was very greatly pleased by the formation of his initials, J. J. P. by the combined units in Los Angeles, which numbered about 2,500 cadets. The General spoke to the boys on the value of military, saying: "It prepares you to enter without serious delay upon military duties, if needed, and also improves your ability to meet ordinary conditions of ordinary life." During the second semester Company A was under Capt. Radcliff, Com- pany B under Capt. Collins, Company C under Capt. Mc-Cauley and the re- cruit detachment under lst Lieutenant Green. The battalion is under Major Orton. This is the first time that Jefferson has had a recruit detachment. Although the detachment is a term behind the battalion in military tactics, it is ahead in some track meets which were held between companies. A competitive drill was held at Exposition Park on March 10, 1920, for the purpose of stimulating interest. The nature of the drill was that it was a silent drill- for about 10 minutes of close order drill and the manual of arms. The judges were officers of high rank. A loving cup was to be given to theplatoon drilling the best. The crack platoon for Jefferson, which was a platoon of 42 privates, three sergeants and one lieutenant, picked from the battalion at large, had practiced on its routine of silent close order drill and manual of arms for about eight weeks. When the contest was over the prize was awarded to Hollywood High School. Jefferson was proud of her boysg even though they did not win, they put up a good showing.

There are in all nine teachers. Mr. Hague being Head of the Depart- ment. Stenograph and Typingg Miss Hasson, Stenography and Typing, Miss Grenage. Office Practice and 'Commercial Arithmetic, Miss Albright, Sten- ography and Typing, Mr. Patterson, Bookkeeping and Accounting, Mr Everett, Bookkeeping, Commercial Law, and Commercial Geographyg Mr. Renshaw, Penmanshipg Mr. Houston, Bookkeeping and Commercial Arith- metic, Mr. Clewe, Business English. The work done by the departments of Typing and Stenography leads up to the Ofhce practice and prepares students to hold responsible positions with business firms. Many of the students from our commercial depart- ment are doing half-day work in Salesmanship in down-town store. The Office Practice students are assigned to various teachers at Jef- ferson to do secretarial work, thus they are helping the school and at the same time are getting valuable training. The Office Practice classes are busy also much of the time with piece work for the various departments, in fact some real business is carried on here. The funds of the school, from whatever source derived are handled by this department. Students in this way gain some knowledge of the handling of money. Locker keys are issued and checked back from this department, and the general business connected with the sale of the Monticellan, the cafeteria, and the lunch counter is transacted here as well. All instructors of 'Commercial work are graduates of accredited schools and are men and women of experience. This very large and important de- partment occupies most of the upper floor of the Academic Building. The rooms, nine in number, are large and well-lighted and are equipped with regulation desks, typing machines, an adding machine, a large safe, cut- ting machines, and necessary charts. In fact it has everything that is nec- essary to instruction in general Commercial work and in application of this instruction. The courses are open, free of charge, to all and the graduates are in demand. What more can the community desire in the way of commercial edu- cation? VVhen night school was begun at Jefferson one and one-half years ago there was demand for Stenography and Typing and it was offered, instructors doing most satisfactory Work, with adults as well as with young students. The preparation in English, required for graduation from this course. is four years and part of this is practical Business English. A short course in Typing and Stenography is offered under the in- struction of Miss Seeley. This-prepares 'students for a certificate, and is es- sentially for those who feel that they have not time for the full course. This is similar to the course olifered in other High Schools of the City. Thus we are prepared to do intensive work, as well as regular High School work, requiring four years. eighty-four CLASS IN MILLINE RY flllillinerg The millinery work, as given at Jefferson, does not have a trade aim. Its purpose is to make the girls handy and to help lessen the financial strain in the home. It aims also, to create good taste in the choice of colors and from the double View point of artistry and of what is becoming to the individual. Those pupils who show real abilty are urged to take up design and to be- come designers of styles. It is the effort,-in other words,-to help girls to "find themselves." Every girl should take up some form of home economics during he school career, even if she is not planning to use such work as a money- maker. The home always benefits by the trained hand and eye. The Won1en's sewing class meets every afternoon from three-thirty to five o'clock. Here the women, about fourteen in number, do both millinery and dressmaking. They build hats from the foundation up, making the frame, and covering and trimming it. For this trimming they make fiowers of all sorts. Dressmaking is begun by studying the patterng then combinations of colors and fabrics. The remodeling of clothes is learned as Well, involving economy in selection and handling of materials. eighty-five Bums Naming Home Nursing is considered an important subject. It is required in the Home Economics and Vocational Courses, and in other courses it is looked upon as a valuable elective. Girls in the Home Nursing classes study personal and home hygiene. Considerable time is given to the causes of disease and the treatment of sick- ness, but more attention still is paid to the prevention of all conditions that tend to place health in jeopardy. A suitable diet for the sick and the feed of growing children are important branches of the nursing art. Everyone should have training in First Aid for the Injured. Jefferson girls are fitting themselves to give this aid. Through their visits to hospitals and dispensories and their instruction in the use of external applications and simple internal remedies, they are gaining knowledge which will make them helpful in any emergency. LAUNDRY CLASS eighty-six I THE CAFETERIA ' C5112 Eunimnnnivr The lunch counter has been completed and the boys are happy with their "tar-baby." They were so anxious to begin work that they were on hand the day before it opened to receive instructions from Miss Dickey for serving. Eight were chosen and are at work with a will every day at the lunch period, serving not less than one hundred boys. The lunch counter has two steam tables with six holes each, and one ice-cream container with two holes. , Shelves receive used dishes and pans, A T' The vocational girls do the cooking for both the lunch counter and the cafeteria. NEW LUNCH COUNTER eighty-seven ART CLASS Art Eggrtment iMlany subjects and small numbers in each group-these are the conditions in the Art Department at present. Very good work has been accomplished by a few students in each line -representation, illustration, costume design, craft work and the different kinds of commercial work. ' It is nice to work in a small class and easy to become a celebrity in one's own Heldg but after all, there is no stimulant like competition. Vkfith larger classes there would be twice as much fun in the work and twice as much honor in each success. New Commercial Art Courses will be offered next year and it is hoped that every student in jefferson, who has any leaning toward art, will find a class where he will feel at home. BIECHANICAL DRANVING eighty-eight Agrirulturavghpartmrni At jefferson the Agriculture and the Science work are combined in one department. In September 1919 Mr. Stanley Foote was elected head of Agri- culture. In addition, the corps of-agriculture teachers consists of Miss Min- nie Reed, Merrs Roy VV. Merrick and Ralph M Ball. At present the work is made up of Girls' Normal Preparatory training in Horticulture, Voca- tional Agriculture including both animal and plant projects, and classes in Plant Propagation. Vocational agriculture aims to teach the students actual farming along profitable lines. Corn, potatoes, pumpkins, alfalfa, milo maize, alfalfa and vegetable produce are the chief crops, due, however, to the nature of the soil, which is of a very light sandy quality. Poultry and lesser live stock, as rabbits, goats and pigs will be given more and more emphasis. The first unit of our poultry house is now in operation with one hundred laying hens at work. Trap nests-means of keeping actually each hen's record-are used continually. By this means excellent strains of Plymouth Rocks and White Leghorns are being made still more excellent, breeding from only the prov- en individuals. Scientific breeding in poultry, as well as in other kinds of livestock, requires that the operator know just how well each hen is produc- ing, otherwise his breeding is only guess work. Several prominent breeders in Southern California have said that they could furnish a fine lot of hens for next year's egg-record work. To them, the value comes from the knowledge of the actual yearly performance of their hens. This year two boys are operating the entire poultry plana and it is yielding a nice proht besides teaching practical poultry farming under local conditions. It is expected that some very creditable egg records wil be made this year. Recently the department received as gifts three fine Flemish Giants frabbitsj and three valuable settings of Barred Rock eggs. Some world-fam- ous Vifhite Leghorns are to be given us next fall, and We will soon purchase a pure bred Poland China pig. eighty-nine The first annual Agricultural Fair will be held on the Jefferson grounds May 25 and 26. Students from all schools in the city may exhibit their stock and produce. Ribbons and valuable special prizes are to be awarded the winning specimens. ln addition, lectures and demonstrations by spec- ialists on poultry, rabbit, and goat projects will be held. The students of of the vocational agriculture work are managing this fair under the direc- tion of the agricultural instructors. An Agricultural Fair was held at Jefferson High School, May 25 and 26 under the management of the Agricultural Department. Exhibits of live stock and field products were made, and prizes awarded. All High Schools and individuals were invited to make entrees provided they were the results of student-project work. The animals most in evidence were rabbits, chickens, geese, goats, and pigs. VVhile live stock was the principal feature, there were exhibits of garden products, such as beets, carrots, and lettuce. Tents were erected to house the stock and garden products which were displayed from stalls and booths. Prizes of garden products and stock eggs were awarded, and ribbons were offered indicating first, second, and third prize ratings. Y There is a large number of students in the agricultural departments, both boys and girls, who are interested in the cultivation of our acreage here, and also in the scientific phase of plant and animal propagation in general. This Fair was held for the purpose of interesting more students in the work of soil production, and the department hoped also to increase an interest in students already engaged in the work. The department hoped also to instruct students in the production of the best stock and in the growth of the best garden products. This phase of Jefferson work promises better things than are now shown, and the time may not be far distant when this High School will rank among the Agricultural Schools of Southern California. The Fair was well attended, the judges from outside complimenting the school on its efforts and on the local interest aroused. An annual exhibit of farm products should be encouraged in order that outside people may know what is being accomplished at Jefferson and what the possibilities are for both boys and girls along agricultural lines. ninety ELECTRICITY CLASS iileririral Bepartment Three lines of electrical work are offered to students of Jefferson High. One is that of contracting for house wiring, another is dynamo-electric machine repair, and a third is auto-electric work. ln the academic courses the pupils are carried as far as second year work in the Universities. It is hoped to extend the outline still further when increased equipment can be secured. ' The students themselves are constructing the needed apparatus for advanced study. A one horse-power generator, two one-quarter horse power and three one-sixth horse-power generators are now in process of construc- tion by the boys in the electrical department. I FORGE SHOP . ninety-one V I ilinrge The Forge equipment consists of fourteen forges, fourteen handmills, one power hammer, one set punching shears, one drill press and eight blacksmith vices. This equipment supplies work for about sixty-five boys in three groups of twenty in a group. One-fourth of this number are in Vocational courses and three-fourths in regular High School courses. The boys in the forge make the following articles: forge hooks, staple rings and chains. They also straighten axles ofautomobiles brought to the auto shop for repairs and do the general auto shop forging. The instructor in this department is Mr. Freeman who is working under the Smith-Hughes law. V SHEET METAL SHOP Sheet metal is a new course at Jefferson. This study or trade may be taken in a high school or vocational course. There are two branches to this work, auto sheet metal and cornice work. This trade can be learned more quickly at jefferson than in a cornice works or in a tin shop. One who begins to learn the trade in a cornice works is sent out on jobs with the men, while at school he stays in the shop all of the time and learns to make different articles. Some of the articles which are finished are: a funnel, a cup, a pan, a scoop, a biscuit cutter and a potato peeler. The tools and machines used in making these articles are: burring machinesg folding, turning and setting down machinesg hatched stakesg mandrel stake, funnel and candle moldsg square heads and round square headsg cornice brake and soldering apparatus. The equipment at Jefferson is as good as in most sheet metal shops. When a boy has completed the vocational course he is prepared to earn from seven to ten dollars a day. He can finish the course here in two years. while it would take him four years in a tin shop . ninety-two fllllarhine Shun r The Machine Shop equipment consists of nine lathes, a universal grinder, a milling machine, a shaper, one drill press, an acetylene welding outfit, a brazing outfit, and various small tools. This is sufficient to care for about sixty-five students during various periods of the day. They do exercise work and practical work in the pro- duction of parts. About three-fourths of the sixty-five students are strictly vocational, while the remaining one-fourth are regular High School students in the Mechanic Arts course. In the Shops the boys have made this year parts to machinery such as auto parts, clothes-line rollers, twenty-eight braces for folding camp beds, gears for the Science department, besides which they have put up the belting in the Shops and have made equipment for the Cafeteria. Auto Svhnp The work of the auto shop is both theory and repair work. The students take cars which come from the outside in bad condition and repair them- that is, remedy every defect and replace needed parts when provided. No material is kept on hand for sale. The shop contains at any time from six to eight autos. About sixty boys were enrolled in these classes during the last semester: twenty of these are in the regular -High School classes and forty in the Vocational classes. ninety-three I PRINT SHOP The print shop at Jefferson, where the boys are taught vocational print- ing under the direction of Mr. Herbert B. Andrews, has turned out some very creditable work during the past year. Besides doing job work, the boys in the print shop do practically all the work on the weekly school publication. Here they are taught printing in the most up to date manner and are pre- pared to take positions in any printing establishment after the completion of the course. 1 WOOD SHOP ninety-fovr --,.f--Y Summarg nf Aihlvtir liuenta Football September 16-Loyola at jefferson October 3-Lincoln at Jefferson October 9-Franklin at jefferson October 16-Jefferson at Manual Basketball january 9-jefferson at Pasadena january 16-Poly at jefferson January 23-jefferson at Manual January 30-L.

Miss Maude 'Coble and Mr. Cyril Tipton are in charge of this work. Regular setting up exercises, mingled with games of indoor baseball, basket- ball. tennis and volley ball make up the study. Special attention is given to students who are not normally strong or need special exerciseg special classes being maintained for them. All the physical work must be done out-of-doors, due to the lack of a gymnasium, but the next term the physical training instructors are looking forward to the long-planned-for building, so that the work of the department will be even more beneficial than at present. SENIOR GIRLS' PHYSICAL EDUCATION ninety-six JF?-. Cflrnnin During the Easter vacation the third and fourth rounds of the City and County Tennis league were played. Jefferson was not represented in the first two playoffs because she did not have a team, but after that a team was organized and jefferson was represented in the remainder of the tournament. The tennis team composed of Robert Penney, Fred Woodyard, Earl Cul- lingham and Paul Homer lost the first three contests. The matches with Hollywood and Los Angeles were lost by forfeit. 'The Jefferson-Poly fray was hotly contested, Poly finally coming out the victor. Poly was upheld by William Scott, Henry Chew and Earl Hefner. Singles Woodyard vs. Scott: 4-6, 0-6. p Penney vs. Chew: 5-7, 4-6. Cullingham vs. Hefner: 10-8, 6-O. ,Doubles First doubles forfeited by Poly. Second doubles-Cullingham and Homer vs. Chew and Hefner: 7-5, O-6, 2-6. The jefferson tennis team journeyed over to Manual on April 5th but returned at the small end of a 12 to 5 score. The scrap was peppy from the first. The Democrat team put up a good Hght and the same pep was wit- nessed in the following games: E April 10-Pasadena at jefferson, Hollywood at Manual Arts, Poly at Los Angeles, Long Beach at Lincoln. April 27-Long Beach at Jefferson, Hollywood at Lincoln, Los -Angeles at Manual Arts, Pasadena at Poly. May 1-Jefferson at Lincoln, Los Angeles at Hollywood, Manual Arts at Poly, Pasadena at Long Beach. ninety-seven T l l l l Elragllluli Last fall the Jefferson High School Trail Club was organized, the con- stitution being framed and adopted before the Thanksgiving vacation. All boys of good standing in the school are eligible to membership in the club, being admitted by a majority vote of those present at any one meeting. All men teachers are honorary members. The meetings are held every other Wfednesday. The purpose of the club is to enjoy God's out-of-doors by means of hikes, a member of the faculty always accompanying the boys. 6581514 Bag jefferson High School witnessed last fall, the first Gala Day ever held on the athletic Held. The purpose of the Day was to inspire Hpepy' into the student body. The student R. O. T. C. band started events by striking up a lively tune. Two joymakers, Hilton and Fleischer, acted as clowns. After the audience had been given enough "ginger" to want more, Miss Coble's indoor teams started the program. In the baseball game between the Freshmen and Sophomore girls the "Sophs,' won nine to one. The Freshmen put up a hard iight but were out- classed by their elders. In the following hotly contested indoor match, the twelfth grade defeated the eleventh, 3-2. The senior squad was headed by Edna Johnson, and the opposing faction by her sister, Iva. The final game then took place between two winners, the "Sophs" and Seniors. The Seniors again were victorious, 4-l, and were declared the champion indoor team. The next affair was the pushball contest. Aa a signal given from Mr. Hague, the referee, both sides rushed savagely, determined to push the ball over the enemy's line. VVhen the welcome whistle was heard the contest ended a zero to zero. The next number was the faculty stunt. Six ladies of the faculty lined up with one suitcase in the hand of the first. Five yards away and facing the ninety-eight ladies were six male members of the faculty, also with a suitcase. After two minutes of mystery, the stunt was disclosed. It was to be a dressing race. The women won. The last and most important event took place when the star foot-ballers and the middle class held the seniors and freshmen at bay. Thus ended the exciting "Gala Day." Eaaghall Jefferson vs. Pasadana Iefferson's 110 pound basketball team won the first game of the season at Pasadena, 26 to 3, while their 130 pounders were defeated 25 to 15. jeffer- son's Heavyweights lost the local encounter, 37 to 13. Jefferson vs. Manual Arts The Democrats were victorious in the lightweight contest at Manual Arts, 28 to 3, while their Middleweights encountered disaster, 29 to 5. At Jefferson, the Artisan Heavies grabbed the honors 38 to 8. jefferson vs. Polytechnic Jefferson's lightweigths and middleweigths proved themselves super- ior to the Polytechnic in their local management, 10 to 8 and 18 to 8 success- ively. Jefferson's Heavy Quintette met defeat at Polytechnic, 39 to 13. jefferson vs. L. A. High -lefferson's hydrogen-weight and middleweight teams defeated the Pio- neers on the latter's field, 10 to 7 and 13 to 12 successively. The Pioneer Un- limited tooke the local strugle 33 to to 6. Jefferson vs. Hollywood ' Jefferson's lightweights won and their middleweights lost to Hollywood on the local grounds, 18 to 5 and 19 to 12 successively. Jeffersonls Heavy- weigths lost to Hollywood 33 to 19. jefferson vs. Lincoln All of jefferson's aggregations were victorious in the Lincoln contests. The lightweights won at Lincoln, 22 to 6, and the Heavyweights won at home 26 to 25. The middleweights won on a forfeit. Q jefferson vs. Long Beach The lightweights finished the season, tied for nrst place with Long Beach, but were nosed out of a penant by losing a heart-breaking battle at Long Beach 17 to 16. The middleweights and Heavies also lost at the Sea- sider's courts 43 to 13 and 36 to 13 successively. Eagiall After some snappy practice games with the Sub. Base, Polytechnic. and Huntington Park, the first league baseball game was played with Pasadena on jefferson's diamond. The Crown City nine were found hanging onto the long end of an 8-2 score after the ninth inning. The first two cantos galloped by with neither side able to score. However, the third inning was different. Pasadena man- aged to secure two runs in the first half while the Democrat nine followed suit in the last half and captured two runs, Cy Young and Joe Ferraris scoring. In the eighth and ninth innings Pasadena added to their score six more runs. This was the climax of the affair. ninety-nine V 4 W Score by Innings l O l 1 0 l Jefferson Hits 0 0 0-4 Runs 0 0 2 0 0 0 0 0 0-2 Pasadena Hits 0 l O 0 0 1 O 1 1-4 Runs 0 O 2 O 0 1 0 3 2-8 I jefferson vs. Polytechnic In the second league affair the Democrats lost to Poly. after a ninth inn- ing rally by the close score of 6 to 5. In spite of the wonderful rally by the jefferson nine in the ninth inning when they scored four runs, Poly. had to get the one run in the last half of the ninth with-where's the rest of 1t?? jefferson vs. Manual Arts In the third contest, one run robbed Jefferson of the game. VVith the tying run on third and the winning marker on second. ,Tefferson went down to defeat by a 3-2' score against Manual, then Lemelle, jefferson's right fielder, took three in the groove for the third out in the first of the ninth. The de- feat by Manual happened for the first time in three years, and let us hope it's the last time for quite awhile. lManual garnered the first runs of the game in the third inning, when two tallies tripped across the rubber. Jefferson gathered two in the fifth frame. The Artisans made their win- ning run in the last half of the fifth. That finished the tallying for the game.

The Democrats, one after one, tripped joyfully to the "rubber" and after gaining five runs in the second inning alone, were not satisfied until the total of 15 tallies had been made. In the first canto the Democrat tossers were able to score three runs. However they made up for this lack in the second for they ran up five tallies. Hollywood scored two in the fourth, two singles and an error doing the damage. In the sixth frame, a single, a walk, and an error were responsible for the same number being credited to the Foothillers. Seven runs tripped over the plate for jefferson after the second inning.

C5112 Fllragnyn Glrawh One of the closest and hardest fought battles of the season was with Franklin on the home grounds, Thursday, October 19, 1919. The first half was a good natured affair, neither team scorng, but in the last half both squads began to slaughter. The "Poor Richards" were held at bay until the last quarter when they wiggled over the goal line and collecetd their six tallies, makin the score 6-O. Girlz' Zfkgrk QJIHPM The Girls' Track Meet held March 12, 1920, was the season's gala event for the jefferson Student Body. Girls took tickets at the gates. Others sold peanuts and candy, swelling the receipts to ninety-eight dollars and ninety-nine cents. lt even took sev- eral looks to make sure whether or not the yell leader was a member of the fairer sex, for vociferous Lloyd Ringland had camoulflaged under a sun- bonnet and behind a dainty white apron. Now to the events: Indoor Baseball-The Eleventh Grade won from the Tenth, Vocational defeated Seniors. The two winning teams then contested, and the Eleventh Grade Won the baseball laurels for the day. In the twenty-five yard dash Naomi Furnage, of the "lil" Freshies was first at the goal, a Vocational girl second, and Esther Thompson, a Senior, third. V The Vocational Students won the Relay Race. The program ended with a three legged race. The Hrst couple to come in were Dorothy Bergman and Myrtle Bergman of the B-9 Class.

Selections were read from Tagore, the Indian mystic poet, one showing that love can never lose its own, and the other, the danger of over-idealizing, or setting up false gods. Next came "Life for Alli' and "Unafraid," by Henry -Christian Warnick, and a brief manuscript from "The Three Things," by Mary Raymond Shipman Andrews. - An Airedale story of how in heaven every boy gets a dog, and every dog a good master awoke a responsive chord in the hearts of the lovers of animals. ' ' Other numbers chosen with taste and skill finished a delightful and helpful program, which will long be remembered by jefferson students. ,Miss Frieda Peyke, well-knowln musician, presented one of the most delightful programs ever given at Jefferson, on March 24, 19203 it was the fourth number of the Artist's Course. The audience was first shown how a theme was selected in keeping with the thought of the poem, and how tthe musical interpretation of the verse was worked out. In "When Tulips Bloom," by Henry Van Dyke, the bird themes of the meadow-lark, song sparrow, flirting cheewink, and her- mit thrush were selected as the basis of the musical improvisation. Other numbers enjoyed were "Out Where the West Begins," by Arthur Chapman, "The Reward of the Cheerfful Candle," and "Chums" by james Folev. Lee Nichols, British playwright and world-war veteran, gave a program of selected readings, most of which were from vigorous, virile Kipling and Service, when he appeared before jefferson students Wednesday afternoon April 14. "Kipling is the greatest dramatist of the age, though he has not expressed himself in the conventional drama form," said Mr. Nichols, preparatory to the reading of "The Banjo" and "If," Thousands of British and American soldiers carried a copy of "If" in the trenches and in the charge. The following lines were given as expressive of the spirit of these men: "If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the will which says to them, 'Hold on!' " In introducing John Masfield to Jefferson students, whom he hoped would later become admirers of the virility, color, and true poetry of this poet, Mr. Nichols read "The West Wind." 'iWho Smashed Bill Kaiser?'i a humorous song by Mr. Nichols, in which the audience joined, was much enjoyed. The entertainment was the last number of the Artists' Course. one hundred five Zllarulig Seninr 1Himir The picnic given by the Faculty to the Seniors of VW20 at Exposition Park was an affair long to be remembered by both students and teachers. The first event of the day was the Faculty-Senior baseball game, which was very exciting, the Seniors allowing the Faculty to win by a score of ive to four. This furnished fun and exercise for all and prepared the appe- tites for the Wholesome supper of hot sandwiches, pickles, pie, and coffee. Supper was followed by speeches, songs, and 'school yells, which pro- duced a genuine feeling of good-fellowship. All went home agreed that the afternoon had been a great success.

The pennants of various classes were conspicuous in the room decora- tions, those of W'2O holding the place of honor. Un the tables, which were artistically decorated in the school colors of green and gold, one hundred fifty covers were laid. p Many clever and interesting toasts were made to the incoming alumni, after which a' musical program was given by former Jeffersonites.

Svnrvnmm Arbor Day was observed at Jefferson, with appropriate addresses and the planting of a cedar tree as a memorial to Mr. E. R. Sorensen. The pro- gram was held in an open-air assembly in front of the bleachers, the audience later dividing into groups for the planting of the trees. Lee Payne delivered the opening address, featuring the planting of memorial groves in ancient times, the revival of the custom in America to- day, and the need for forest conservation. Next came a selection by the R.O.'I'.C. military band, led by San Goodman. Irving Kramer then read "The Heart of a Tree," by Henry Kyler Ben- ner, and Hilda Tetley recited Joyce Kilmer's poem, "The Tree." Mr. Irvin Hague, a close friend of Mr. Sorensen's, gave the address of the day, a sincere and touching tribute. "Lest VVe Forget," was sung by the Boys, Glee Club, with bugle accom- paniment by Frank Albitz and Horace Smith of the R.O.T.C. band. After the program on the bleachers had been concluded, the students assembled on the south side of the Science Building to witness the planting of the cedar in memory of Mr. Sorensen. At the same time the girls' agriculture class was planting a eucalyptus in honor of John Muir, the great naturalist. A cedrus atlanticus was likewise being planted on the southeast side of the Academic Building by the girls! biology classes and dedicated to Luther Burbank. Miss Reed personally gave a eucalyptus viminialis to the Student Body. This tree has been planted on the south side of the Academic Building and dedicated to Charles Darwin, the greatest naturalist of all times.

The question was "Resolved, That the State of California should have an industrial court with duties and powers substantially similar to those of the newly created Kansas court of that name." Lee Payne and Herbert Fisher, jeffersonls standard bearers, upheld the affirmative, while Percival Spencer and Edward Lloyd advanced the negative argument for the Los Angeles High School. The old-time Jefferson spirit and support made the debate a great suc- cess. It was a happy event because the debate was won by the Democratic duo. The arguments and rebuttals were peppy and cutting. Payne and Fisher showed that compulsory arbitration was a success, ending with down-to-the point phrases. The judges were Messrs. 'E. VV. Mattoon, H. M. Morley and L. E. Edwards. one hundred nine C5122 Cllluh Martina March 17, the members of the Girls' Glee Club with Dorothy Schmidt as president, and Miss Stone as adviser, gave a party to the Boys' Glee Club. Room 239 was used for the affair and was decorated in the school colors, green and white, the color scheme being carried out in the refreshments of ice-cream and cake. The time was well filled with social games and dancing. The Glee Club Girls were hostesses of the occasion while Miss Stone, Miss Carey and Miss Irvine acted as chaperones. On the afternoon and evening of May 14, the members of the Boys' Glee Club gave a return affair to the Girls' Glee Club. This was in the form of a wienie bake and moonlight boating at Echo Park. Glenn Wilson, as president of the Boys' Glee Club, had the arrangements in charge. The boys and girls with Miss Stone, Miss Carey, and Mr. and Mrs. Tipton as chaperones, left jefferson at four o'clock. Every one had a glorious time until nine olclock when they left for home with a round of song and in jubilant spirits.

This out-of-door program of music and dancing was quite unusual be- cause of the medley of color. It called out the applause of an enthusiastic audience made up of students and their parents and friends. The members showed the efficient work done by the department of Physical Education under the direction of Miss Coble and Miss Pressman. Also the superior talent of the many student-musicians with Miss Stone and Mrs. Edwards as directors. The first number on the afternoon program was by the orchestra. The Hoop Dance by twelve girls was given as a second number. The girls wore dresses of light and dark purple and carried hoops of greenery and sweet peas. A Butteriiy Dance was next, lead by Florence VVagner in a yellow and purple dress. The fourth number was a song by the Girls' Glee Club-"Ohl that we two were A-Mayingf, A patriotic dance was given, lead by Dorothy Gilbert in red, white, and blue colors, with a cane of the same wielded to the airs of "Columbia, the Gem of the Cceanf' "DiXie,' and "Yankee Doodlefy The "Pipes of Pan" to the music "Pier Gynt Suite," by Etta Gordon was very attractive. The colors used in this were pink and blue. "Psyche and Cupidu was danced by I-lelen Fosket and Mary Brooks in dresses of pink and white. The last number was a May Pole dance by sixteen girls in Mom's cos- tume: eight of these impersonated boys. The colors used were orange, maroon, purple and green. one hundred ten Flhnmau Blrfferann Bag The birthday of Thomas jefferson was observed April 15, by an assembly permeated with the true spirit of the day. Professor Lawrence Lowrey of the department of history at the Uni- versity of Southern California was the orator of the occasion. A frequent visitor to Monticello, brought up with the jefferson tradition, an ardent admirer of the great Democrat, Professor Lowrey gave a noteworthy con- tribution to the students' knowledge of the author of the Declaration of Independence. "Giant" Idirnir The cast of "The Man on the Box" had a jolly time at Exposition Park on the last week in May. It was planned so that the' weary dramatists might follow up a strenuous rehearsal with laughter, and they succeeded. Miss VVebster chaperoned the party. The "eats"-wieners, sandwiches, coffee and cake, were fully appreciated by this hungry "Cast" , Blarultg-Sveninr Hirnir Exposition Park was again the trysting place for the faculty members and the seniors in a joint effort to get acquainted with' each other. The committee in charge was made up of members of the faculty, as they were the hosts and hostesses of the occasion. The regulation games, songs and school yells kept the fun going from four-thirty until seven-thirty. Of course they ate-sandwiches, wieners, coffee, salad, etc., etc. iMfiss Stone was in charge, assisted by Miss Hermans, Miss Coble, Mr. Renshaw, and Mr. McDermott. This picnic took place on the afternoon and evening of May 27. Alumni Baum The first real party by the members of the Alumni Association was given May 28, at jefferson.

' one hundred fourteen language C'LVhgN1?vhz an 53251 I was awakened in the middle of the night by a disturbance in the library. It did not seem to be the noise of burglars. Creeping softly to the door, I stood and listened. Q "I don't care," said the little word OF. "I may not be very big, but that is no reason why everybody should take advantage of me. I am the most mercilessly overworked word in the dictionary. and there is no earthly reason for it, either. People say they 'consider of' and 'approve of' and 'accept of' and 'admit of' all sorts of things. Then they say 'all of us,' and 'both of them,' and 'first of all,' and tell about 'looking out of' the window, or cutting a piece of bread 'off of the loaf,' until I am utterly tired out." "Pshaw!" said the word UP, 'I am not much bigger than you. and I do twice as much work, and a good deal of it needlesslv. too. People 'wake up' in the morning and 'get up' and 'shake up' their beds and 'dress up' and 'wash up' and 'draw up' to the table. and 'eat up' and 'drink up' their break- fast. Then they 'jump up' from the table and 'hurry up' to the corner, where the street-car driver 'pulls up' his horses and the passengers 'ascend up' the steps and 'go up' into the front seats, and the conductor 'takes up' the tickets. All this is done even before people 'get up' tow!n and 'take up' their dayigs work. From that time until they 'put up' their books and 'shut up' their offices I do more work than any two words in this bookg and even after business hours I am worked until people 'lock up' their homes and 'go un' to bed and 'cover themselves' and 'shut up' their eves for the night. -It would take a week to tell what I have to 'put up' with in a day, and I am a good deal 'worked up' over it." "I do a great deal of needless work," said the word BUT. "People say they have no doubt 'but that' it will rain, and that they shouldn't wonder 'but what' it would snow, until I don't know 'but' I shall strike." "VVhat I have most to complain about," said the word AS, "is that I am forced to associate so much with the word EQUALLY. Only Vesterday a man said he could 'see ,equally as well as' another man. I don't see what business EQUALLY had in that sentence." "If it is my turn," said the word AMONG. "I should like to protest' against Mr. BETWEEN doing mv work. The idea of people saying a man divided an orange 'between' his three children! It humiliates me." "It is no worse," said the word FEXVER. "than to have people say there were 'less' men in one army than in another." "No," added MORE TI-IANQ "and no worse than to have them say there were 'over' one hundred thousand men." "It seems to me," said the word LIKFLV, "that nobody has more reason for complaint than I have. My friend LIABLE is doing nearly all my work. They say a man is 'liable' to be sick or 'liable' to be out of town, when the question of liability does not enter into the matter at all." "You're no worse off than I am," said the little word SO. "That fellow SUCH is doing all my work. People say there never was 'such' a glorious country as this, when, of course, they mean there never was 'so' glorious it country elsewhere." I saw that there was likely to be no end to this discussion, since half the words in the dictionary were making efforts to put in their complaints, so 'I returned to my couch: and I will leave it to any person who has read one hundred fifteen Ellie Svtrangr Svtnrg nf Muhhlinn My name is Vlfilberfore Gubblins. Ten years ago I was a clerk in the house of Einstein Sz Newton, famous importers of Swiss Cheese I-Ioles. Cn a miserable stipend of 31.58 per week I supported my wife, a paralyzed mother, and six hungry children. Today-but enough of that. One night I trudged wearily homeward to our humble tenement in the Commodore. My wife met me at the door, the tears streaming down her face. "Oh, XNilby,', she cried, "what shall we do? The quarter for supper fell into the knot-hole in grandpais wooden leg." Convulsive sobs racked her frail fame. I sank listlessly into a chair, dully wondering what was the use of going on with it. A page of an open magazine caught my eye, and the words leaped at me. UOI1, yes, I know you. You are Mr. Addled Simp of Seattle. I met you at a dog-fight at the Rotary Club three years ago. Has your wife still got the measles? And did that string-bean merger ever come thru? It was a message of hope from Davis Rot, the great memory expert. Vlfith a cry of delight I ran to the nearest post-box and dropped in a check. In ten minutes the first lesson fell out of the box. I read it. I was a new man. ' The next morning I knocked boldly on Mr. Einsteinls door. "Come inf' he snarled. I walked up to his desk and looked him calmly in the eye. I would im- press him with my grasp of the fundamental facts of life. 'iMr. Einsteinf' I said, "do you know that the 1918 Rhubarb crop in Bogota is the largest on record? Do you realize that the Koko Bird, which is indiginous to java, flies backward to keep from getting dust in his eyes? Can you-" But why go on? That moment was the turning point in my career.
