Delicious refreshments were served by Sophomore girls from a uniquely designed Eskimo Igloo. The cr-es-cent moon idea was also carried out in the dance programs for they were in the shape of small, blue crescent moons. The music was furnished by the "Varsitonia.n-s" of the College of Pacific. This farewell dance climaxed the joyful mernoriesthat the Seniors had gathered during their high school days.

The first meeting of the year was held October 31. at the home ot' Margaret and Alfred Schaeffer in Vernalis. All members of the club dressed in ghostly array, and, appropriate for the occasion, answered roll call by quoting ghostly sayings. The main feature of this meeting was a. story telling contest in which Marian Blown, representing the senior class, told Rudyard Kiplinv's blood curdliug tale of the "Phanton Richshawf' and Beatrice Stocking representing the junior class. told the thrilling tale of the "Rival Ghosts."

J .., V -- ., ---f --V a W- -- .1 .- -4-- "TI-IE VISION QF SIR THOMAS" Sir Thomas sat in his great chair, blinking sluggishly at the streaks of light that had crept in through the narrow castle Windows to lie on the stone- paved floors. Every little while he slumped down farther in the well-filled chair and the edge of his gorgeous crimson cloak slipped farther down into the mire of the dingy floor. He roused himself momentarily, and reaching for a goblet on the table beside him. drank long and deeply. T'hen he slipped back into his coma, his eyes staring glazedly at a cohweb that hung from the darkness of the corner into the sifted sunlight. His head began to nod. his gaze wavered from the cobweb and sleep was almost upon him when the dogs under the table began to fight. A great hubbub filled the room, echoed. and surged from stone to stone, filling every corner with clatter. Sir Thomas' head straightened up. but without looking away from the cobweb he delivered a series of kicks that bespoke long practice. Several of the blows met substance and a cascade of yelps went up, to give place to deep thro-ated growls and whines, and then silence prevailed and sleep came to the mama. Sir Thomas opened his eyes slowly as though reluctant to leave the land of sleep. He sat erect, his body stiffening. Before him stretched a smooth swell of lawn, fringed with trees. Above his head a tree leaned protectingly. He stared, muttered, shook his head. rubbed his eye . and stared again. Had he been drugged amd carried from his castle? Besieged and ejected from his home? His brain was in a whirl and he rose dizzily to his feet and staggered uncertainly forward. His walk became more steady as he progressed. Finally he encountered a path that led away through the trees. It was wide and strangely hard to his feet. Following its way. he became aware of a dull roar. Suddenly the path turned and the sight that greeted Sir Thomas froze his mind for before him seethed a multitude of people and yet were they people? Yes. He could distinguish that there were both men and women and that they wore short hair such as Sir Thomas had often seen on peasants. Then he blushe-d for he noticed that the women's skirts hung only to their knees. The men seemed to 'have gained propriety by their Women folk 's deviation. for instead of neat breeches such as he himself wore, they had on long pantaloons that reached modernity to their feet. The colors in the men' clothes were in-conspicuously drab, but the women wore glaringly brilliant ones. I As the crowd of human beings dispersed he saw a long yellow monster charge down the street snorting and screaming as it came. Sir Thomas' throat contracted and he was about to cry out in warning when the creature halted and seemingly opened its mouth and disgorged people then gulped up others, who voluntarily walked into its vociferous cavity. Sir Thomas dazed. studified, benumbed. stood dizzy and overpowered. Again the crowd surged apart, disclosing a steady stream of strange black monsters. two-eyed. snort- l40l ,- s is E ITI I- 'U O :U 'I P I- ll 5 1: it Q If -1 5 ! .III 1222131111221-'ZIIIIIIIZIIZZZZ Z2 gn: VII ill I3 MW-. - I ' I M Sffgl 9 2 7 f Q1 Sa 1 1 1 - lit...

These, too, contained people who seeming unmindful of -any- thing unusual, rode calmly on and who appeared to have trained the very dragons into submission and utility. Suddenly he was aware that he was being stared at. A small crowd had collected at a respective distance from him and stood gazing curiously at him. He colored and inspected his person. He saw nothing to provoke their stares and his iirrdignation rose as they continued to gape. He caught half smothered murmers that went up from the group and their language although queer seemed to be somewhat like his own. "An actor," some said. "Nut," muttered others. "Might be a bet." one ventured. Anger swelled up in him as he saw their amused glances and he was about to reply, when a pompeous person in blue with a silver star on his coat came pushing through the crowd, inquiring in a loud harsh voice their business there, then issuing orders that sounded to Sir Thomas like a chess game. "Move on, move on, there," he bellowed. The crowd melted. but passersby still stared. "Well now, an' what may yer business be here? Yer blockin' traffic and yez look like a nut to me. Where 's yer keeper?" Sir Thomas felt offended. He recognized the words. but put together as they were, he did not understand the significance of them. He only knew from the tone that he was being insulted. "Prithee kind, sire, and who are you? I like not your tone." he said. The man gave him a queer look, stood a few minutes squinting at him and then went to a pole near by and opened a box suspended thereon and talked to it. Sir Thomas stood still for a few minutes, then a throng of hurrying people swept down the sidewalk, carrying him in its current. He was too bewildered to remonstrate or escape the mad whirl so 'after a few weak struggles, he submitted and let himself be carried onward. After he had been bumped, jostled, pushed, and trod upon, the mob dwindled and he was able to look about him. On either side of him, great walls towered to the sky. They were cut up into windows and doorways and as he gazed, he foun-d that these walls were parts of huge buildings. Some of the windows were down near the street and he could look in and see im some, clothes, in others meats. and in still other, vegetables. People were -surging in and out, and inside were busy people and all seemed to be in a hurry. They stared at him, so he walked on. He heard a great humming noise overhead. Looking up, he beheld an enormous bird that flipped and whirled, only to fly swiftly onward and out of sight. He was afraid and his knees trembled, but finding that people about him were calm. he quieted. Walking on he left the huge buildiing in the distance and came upon smaller edifices that seemed to be dwellings -l ' l ll -, n A1 9 2 .. +2411-19151-+-+ 4f,-++1 -as-r Q .

One man was throwing a ball at another who seemed to be defending himself with a stick. Other men were arranged in the space in a diamond shaped array. Then the man hit the ball with the stick and began racing at a great pace about the field. The ball had come toward Sir Thomas and now rolled near his feet. A man came running up, stopped, stared at him, the-n picked up the ball and threw it to one of his fellows. Their attention had turned toward Sir Thomas and all stood staring at him, so he turned and walked away. Growing weary and finding no place to rest, he turned to retrace his slr-ps to the place where he had first awakened among trees and grass. There he would be able to stretch out and think and reconcile himself to his fantastic surro.iudings. Ille came again to the large buildings and finding a place where food stuffs were displayed. stopped and gazed hungrily at the queer looking things there. that nevertheless were food. Ile put his hand toward a cake. but encount- ered something hard. Ile gasped and stared. He could see -nothing. Ile ran his hand up and down meeting everywhere something hard. A' spell, he thought and drew back. But hunger spurred him on and he thrust his hand out quickly. Something gave way with a crash and he could see the thing was like ice, cracked. and scarred where his hand had gone through. Ile seized the cake and began munching it, finding it more delicious than anything else he had ever eaten. A man came out of the building yelling savagely, gave one look and bounded back in again. Sir Thomas went on down the street. Suddenly he heard a clamor behind him and looking back he saw many men, blue coated and silver starred. Immediately he knew they were pursu- ing him. He struck out, running at top speed. He dropped his cake. He rain faster. They were gaining on him. He dashed across the street. He turned corners. zigzagged, and doubled on his course. but to no avail. They still followed. Then he came to a hole in the center of the street. It was black down the hole. but the men were upon him, so he leaped into it. Darkness descended upon him. Sir Thomas awoke with a start. The cobweb dangled before his eyes in the faint light that was almost gone. Ile sat up very suddenly, mumbled ant. looked about him. The old familiar stone room met his gaze. He sighed ifn relief, and shook himself from sleep that had taken possession of him. Then he caught sight of the goblet on the table. A thin layer of red liquid still remained in the bottom. Ile muttered, colored, and with an exclamation of impatience, swept it off the table. lt splintered to tiny fragments on the floor and a thin trickle of red coursed down the stones. The dogs began to fight in a far corner. Sir Thomas pulled himself up out of his chair and relieved his feelings by kicking each one soundly. -FONTAINE IIARRINGTON, '28. , T: it N E E il E fs l42l J ,II ,Sm IIN ACTIVITIES i'::::::::El. PCDRTAL P ::::::::i:::::!Io FROSI-l PARTY The freshmen "Return Party." given on December 17. 1926. was one which was enjoyed by all. The incoming class demonstrated much ability and skill in planning this unique party. Music was furnished by an orchestra composed of Neil Looney, Tom Eagan, Albert Cohn. and Louis Cripps. When the evening was half over. Santa Claus, impersonated by Edward Martin. made his appearance and distributed gifts to all. causing much fun and laughter. The presents consisted of dolls. suckers. balloons. horns. and such childish toys. The dancing continued until eleven o'clock. Everyone went home stating that this frosh party was one of the best parties given in the high school. SPANISH PARTY The first party of the Spanish Club given this year. was a backward 's party given January 6, 1927. The room was decorated with green paper bows. making it look very attractive. Several Spanish games were played and then refreshments consisting of ice cream and cake were enjoyed. The committees were as follows: Decoration committee-Dorothy Anton. Thelma Tschierschky, Louis Willig, Fred Watkins. and John 0'Melia: refreshment committee-Dorothy Clark. Pearl Schlunegar. Phyllis Fitzgerald. Eleanor. Strahorng entertainment committee-Fred Watkins, Leo Codoni, Dorothy Cla rk. THE SENIOR WEINEE ROAST All of the faculty and the members of the senior class were leaving any time between four and six, for Bronich's ranch. where the Weinie Roast was to take place. Those who went out early built a big bonfire and prepared the supper, which was composed of frankfruters and buns. hot coffee, pickles, cheese. cookies and all the incidentals to make a picnic supper. Games around the camp fire were participated in by all those present, until it was time for departure. During the time the picnic was at its height. irrigation water was turned into the fields through which the cars must be driven over to reach the highway. The majority of the cars got stuck. some in the ditches others in sink holes. Through the efforts of the mein and boys the cars were gotten out of the mud. Although this predicament was not anticipated, it was agreed that it added to the evening's merriment. -MARIAN BROWN. l44l 'b"::22:l!3!2:::::.':x Q 1 9 2 7 ' 'zzirm T123 . PORTAL!

In the afternoon of September 10, the freshmen boys had two contests with the sophomore boys in various feats which demanded the execution of strength, skill, and courage. The sophomores seemed to receive as much initiation as the freshmen in such contests as the water fight. The freshmen girls were by no means left out. They contested with the sophomore girls in a ball game, water fight and various other performances. The rest of the afternoon was spent in dancing. The afternoon turned out to be a huge success. FRESHMEN RECEPTION On Friday evening, September 17, the Freshmen Reception was given at the high school.

Nevertheless. Mr. Westlake in charge, took the matter in hand, issued a call for candidates to play on the team, 26 reported. Ralph Fitzsimmons, then volunteered to coach the squad and drilled the men in fundamentals until they appeared to make quite a promising team. Due to the circumstances over which Ra'ph had no control, he was called East, so Leonard Scott took the squad "under his wing." Ile- taught them some tricky plays and the team was ready to so some more. In all, Tracy won only three out of 10 games, but the players profited in experi- ence and learned the meaning ot' the spirit, oi' athletics. The experience gained by some of the players who will still be here next, year. will help them, because Tracy is out for a winning team. the foundation of which has been laid this season. The scores of the games that were lost, show that the boys had a lighting spirit this year. The victories that the team appreciated most, were the one over Livermore and the one over Patterson. Patterson and Livetmore have decisively be'ten Tracy in basketball so Tracy had at last found a way to beat them. Although eight men graduate this year, Tracy will have a. good coach next year and in three or four years 'l'r4.cy High will have a championship team. "Bob" Clnisman, captain and center. was a good captain, and passer. He was a good defense man and a hard tackler. The team will miss him next year. "Walt" Brolliar. hallback, was our triple threat man and the backbone of the backfielul. He did most ot' the kicking and passing. He has two more years in high school. "Harold" Smith, tackle, was always ready when called upon and broke up many of our opponents plays. He graduates, "Jeff" Costello, quarterback and safely. was a keen strategist and was a. danger- ous man in a broken field. Hardly a. man got by him as safety, "Jeff" is a freshman. "Ernie" Relluomni, halfback, was a VPl'y fast man with the hall and was hard to stop. "Ernie" was good in interference and tiick plays. He is a sophomore. l53l ".'.t!:'1..".'m:::z:x:::::.'f:frm: t 9 Z2 7minima::1tsfaf:s:.mifJ2n'-31:11.13 w N 3 ggffgiii1o""oo'ov 2' E 1.

' l , "Grange" Meder, Tracy's gallopin' ghost halfback, proved himself to be worthy of Q I a letter by an 85-yard run at Patterson. He was a very fast man. He is a senior. "Leo" Oswalt, showed his pluck at guard. He was the smallest man on the team, but he stopped for no one. He has two more years in which he should show up' well. Then we can't forget those men who worked hard but dldn't play long enough in the games to get letters. They were: "Big" Brooks, "Herb" Greer, "Trudy" Herman, Dennison, "Norm" Lamb, and Doyte Richards. These men will all be valuable next l year. Lamb and Richards will graduate.-F. M. '27.

This number soon dwindled to 12. because ot' poor gr9..les. Nevertheless. the squads worked with Coat-h Westlake and soon looked quite promising. The first team never seemetl able to function in the titst halt' and that is where most, of our games were lost. Another disadvantage was that o11ly five men were real first team material and that necessitated putting second team men in for substitutes. Toward the last ol' the season, int'et'tions and sprztins badly hampered three first team 1llBI1. Although the team won only fon: gmmes, the scores show that the team played SOIIIP very exciting and close games as cotnpared with last yenr's. The victory most appreciated was that over the Newman tive, who had been undefeated this year until they niet. the Bulldogs. . Only two first team men graduate. consequently some very good material is left for next year. The team was: Owen, forward and high point mang Richards. fozwrd. a. fast man: Embery, t-enter. at good floor mang Brolliltr, guard, stopped many goals: Mullztlly, tauptain and guatrdg Cohn and Lamb. substitutes.

The girls may play friendly games with any school they desire. The ,ul s baseball coaches agreed the girl's teams might play on the same days as the boys ol lracy, Newman. Gustine. and Patterson played if satisfactory to the those con erm-d. The Tracy girls played two games with Patte1'son, and one with Newman. The Gustine girls were unable to play inter-school baseball this year. Tlacy played the first game with Patttrson at Tracy with the following 'ine u'D: M11 ie Anton, pitcher: Rachel Lee Willis, catcherg Mabel Matthies, first baseg Evelyn Duan. second baseg Ethel Wilcox, third haseg Elsie Mae Graves, short stopg with .lattice Button, Be1nice Bidwell and Theresa Cernusco, out in the field, and Niildrcd Anderson. Doris Alhetrio as spares. Due to stage fxight on the part of Tra y, time swore vt is 25 to 1 in favor of Patterson at the end of the fifth inning. In the sixth inning' lr Icy woke up, really began to play and made four runs while Patte son made one and in the seventh and last inning, Tracy again made tour runs while Patterson made tuo The final score was 28 to 9 in favor of Patterson. The game at Newman. between Tracy and Newman, was short, Consisting of onli five innings. but there weie many l'lll'lS. The final sco1'e was 35 to 16 in favor 0 Tracy, Evelyn Devan, Rachel Lee Willis, Theresa Cernusco, Doris Albetrio and Mildred Anderson. made four runs each. Lena Slnardell and Esther Carlson who h.1d not played in the first game, showed their ability to play baseball, and played it well. The third game took place between Tracy and Patterson at Patterson. Again Patterson started out getting runs and the scoze was 8-2 at the end of the second inning in ttvor ot' Patterson. Tracy improved from that time but was unable to overcome the lf d Patterson had gained and the final score was 9 to 12 in favor of Patterson. Evelyn Brooks played in this game and proved she could play baseball too. The prospets for a good baseball season next year are bright. Ttacy will lose onli three p'ayers next year: Marie Anton, Bernice Bidwell, and Janice Button. Esther tfnlson and Lena Smardell will be seniors. Evelyn Bzooks, Evelyn Devan.
