It is the biggest and the best in the history of the Turlock High School and, we think, in the state itself. All of the teachers of last year are with us again with the exception of Mr. Paul B. Taylor and Miss Doris Spencer. Several additions have been made to the teaching force of last year. Miss Mable Barnard takes Mr. Taylor's place in the music department. Miss Learned is the new science teacher. Miss Plummer and Miss Ricketts teach freshman subjects and Miss Reed has the destinies of the mid-year freshmen in her hands. The latest addition is Miss Squire, who takes Miss Mann 's place in the domestic science department for the last two months of school. We think we are fortunate to have such a faculty, because no matter how Willing We are to work or how Well equipped the school is, We can make no progress unless We have the proper kind of teachers and we feel that those who are now With us are well pre- pared for their Work and have our best interests at heart. Those who have been with us for some years are as Well liked as ever, and those who have come in this year are no less popular. We think that our faculty is the best that could be found, and we earnestly hope they will be with us next year. A. M. K. '17. Seven Faculty VV. E. PIESTER, Principal - American History, Algebra. M.

A Associations loved now start sad tears, ' Fraternity with classmates, teachers kind, All this a moment is, then left behind, And from our lives this sweet joy disappears. The greatest gladness swiftest speeds away And well it is, for honey eaten much Soon satiates and by its sweetness sickens, But quick-removed joy in some afterday, By magnifying Mern'ry's magic touch, Is rendered perfect and the whole life quickens. Senior Report i Seniors! We speak for ourselves! Under the red and black, we have traveled through four joyous years with the best principal, the best faculty, the finest girls, the manliest boys, the jolliest dis- positions, the most enjoyable times, and the most excellent records of any class which has ever been graduated from Turlock High. You can tell that we are excedingly popular, because six members of our class have left school to embark upon the sea of matrimony, and from all evidence, one more is about to do so. Notwithstand- ing this fact, this is the largest class which has ever been graduated from the Turlock Union High School. We entered as freshmen with an enrollment of sixty-five. Instead of taking our ducking, as most freshmen do, we drowned the upper classmen, and, since that time we have been the most important beings in school. Being too green to burn, we passed safely through Hades at our freshmen reception, and later in the year, we braved the spooks in the ceme- tery when we had our first party. Then, lo and behold! we were sophomores! Happy and light-hearted we journeyed through that year, ducking the freshies, taking an active part in all school activi- ties, enjoying social events, and trying to run the school in general. Another year rolled around, and the class which had the fewest fContinued on Page Twenty-three!

Every one acknowledged that the junior class was the best in school. During that year Miss Long and Mr. Martin were given to us as class advisers, and they proved to be such excellent helpers that we besought Mr. Hester to let us retain them. We tried some new stunts that year. One was a moonlight picnic, on which the mudhole played an important part. Another new stunt was that of giving a picture to the school. At last the crowning moment came and we were seniors. Dur- ing this year we have had a number of delightful social functions. Some of the especially enjoyable events were the reception given by the juniors, the evening at Mr. and Mrs. W. Fl. Hester's home. the banquet given by our parents, our party at Anna Margaret Kline's home, our moonlight picnics, the parties at the homes of Wilma and Leona Schendel and Augusta flarquist-in fact, they were all especially enjoyable. Mr. Martin 's "Good Night, Ladies" will never be forgotten by the seniors. One of the best times we have ever had was the afternoon we spent with Ralph Ayres Mar- tin. He is such a delightful entertainer that we shall not soon for get it, and the young men will always linger in our memories as the handsomest fellow we know. Another one of our undertakings for this year was the giving of the " Follies of l9l7." The whole class took part in this enterg tainrnent. This was a new idea for the school, but as we are such a talented class, it was quite easy for us to make the "Follies of 1917" a very pleasing event. lVe have a number of distinguished people in our class. Har- old McMurry has won two state and two National prizes for writing essays. There were three seniors on the debating team, four on the tennis teams, two in the annual play, five on the basketball tam, seven in the double quartet, three on the baseball team, and five on the track team. The most wonderful thing of all is that we are not a bit conceited because of our successes, although the jun iors think we are. We are graduating with an enrollment of forty- three-the largest class in the history of our high. Now, although we don 't know what the school will do without us, we must bid farewell to Mr. Hester, to our excellent faculty. to our classmates, to the members ofthe lower classes, and to our dear old alma mater. May all members of the Turlock High School have a happy, successful life is the wish of the class of 1917-the best class ever! ALICE CHAPPELL '17. Twenty-three X A l junior Report ' o 'X Juniors! Rah! Rah! Rah! Juniors. The total enrollment of the junior class at the beginning of the school year was fifty, the present enrollment is thirty-two. One of the iirst things the juniors did this term was to elect the following officers: Ralph McVey ....... ................. P resident Bessie Berlin ....... ........... V ice President Paul Nystrom ....... .............. S ecretary Edgar Kingery ....... ............. T reasurer ' Sybil Anderson ................................................ Class Reporter The juniors began their social function by giving a party in Unity Hall in honor of the class advisors, who are Miss Grant, Miss Barnard, and Mr. Learned. On January 26, the junior girls gave a scrumptious supper for the special benefit of the junior boys. This occasion was a vastlyimportant one, especially for the girls, and all the juniors were glad that the enterprise was so very suc- cessful. Another occasion, which was of great importance for the juniors, was the party for the seniors on Friday, April 13, at the home of Bessie Berlin. All, who were present, reported that they Twenty-four aomflf ssx-113 had a most enjoyable time. Of course we shall have a class picnic or two before the school year ends. But the juniors have done some other things this year than entertain. It was the junior class which won in the inter-class track meet. And there are several juniors among those who have been and now are training for other track meets. There are also juniors who play tennis. Of course there are juniors on the basket- ball teams-on the boys' first, boys' midget, and the girls' teams. Edgar Kingery, a junior, is pitcher for the baseball team and Myron Bothun, another junior, is also one of the baseball players. There are juniors in all the musical organizations-orchestra, chorus, and all the rest. And can the juniors debate? Well, I guess. Think of all the debates that have been given in the junior English classes. Every member of the junior English classes has debated at least once dur- ing the year, and two teams chosen, one from each junior English class, debated against each other before the Debating Society and presented one of the best programs that society has enjoyed this year. Two of the five debaters representing Turlock Iligh School in the State League debates are juniors. In the school plav, t'Mr. Bob," Paul Nystrom starred as .len- kins and Jennie Dahlin as Patty. When we had a parade to show the people of the community how badly we needed a new high school, the juniors worked harder than any other class and had the most clever float. The juniors presented a very beautiful picture to the school. and on the occasion of the presentation gave an interesting pro- gram to the assembled student body. We are to have an honor roll this year of the students who have received the highest grades for the year. Observe how many jun- iors there are among the honor students. Now I ask: -X "What's the matter with the juniors?" If you are not yet convinced that they are all right, just look through the Alert to see what they have done and then stop to think about it. I should not be at all surprised if members of the class of '18 became great doctors, lawyers, statesmen, teachers, and even poets. At any rate we all mean to be good and useful American citizens. A whole is made of its parts and the class of '18 is one of the most necessary parts of Turlock High. Next year the members of the class of '18 will be seniors, and those who wear the gold and white will then be a still more necessary part of dear Turlock High. S. G. A.

Of course we feel that we have the best class in school, also that we have the best class advisers. They are Miss Coleman., Miss Mann and Mr. Porter. Besides giving us help and encourage- ment, they are the best chaperons any class ever had. We have found some thistles along our usually sunny and care- free path. One of these tiny thistlettes of disturbances floated down into our midst about Christmas time in the dainty form of very expensive class emblems. But here, again, the sophomores showed their superior knowledge and exiled little thislette, not wishing any of her disturbing faimly to settle in peaceful T. H. S. Our social events have not been the least of our achievements. Our first great pleasure was a very enjoyable party held at Mon tana Delbon's lovely home. At this party the boys were the guests of the girls. One boy, who, to our loss. has left us, remarked that it was the most enjoyable party he had ever attended. He added that the girls kept something interesting going all the time. Yes, that's the way sophomores do everything. The boys gave the girls a return party at Unity llall. It was indeed an evening to be re- membered, and we all agreed that the boys were certainly masters of the art of entertaining. Every activity of school life has its representation of sopho- mores. The operetta, given by the music department, showed a large number of sophomores, some of whom did good solo work. Two of our prominent members are Very accomplished pianists of our school. Also we have a goodly representation in the orches- tra. As our influence is felt in the musical activities of our school. so it is felt, equally strong, on the athletic field. Wlio doesn't know that a swift game is assured when Clharles Hultberg appears on the Twenty-eight TiHOWOHdOS ssvi 3 if U' 1 court? Montana Delbon, a sophomore, is manager of the Girls Basket Ball Team, and she is ably supported by her classmates, who play second to no members of the school. No class upheld the school banner as did the sophomores in the parade for bonds. Yes, "pep," is the word for the entire sophomore class. We found that our president, Roland Hook, and Secretary, Montana Delbon, who served us in our freshman year, too good to lose and re-elected them. A few months before the close of school. however, our president found it necessary to resign. This we re- gretted very much, but all our eiforts could not dissuade him from the course he had taken. We very much regretted losing his able leadership. Elmer Hanson was elected to act in his place for the remaining months of the school year. The officers are now: Elmer M.

V, mx 9 Freshman Report , On the eleventh of September a bright crowd of freshmen. totaling one hundred twenty-five, entered Turlock High and settled down to their studies. Although handicapped by being unfamiliar with high customs, and by seeing many strange faces around us, we started out in earnest. Soon our dim eyes opened, and we be- held ourselves in the whirl of school activities. On Wednesday, September the twenty-eighth we organized our class under the supervision of our devoted class advisers, Miss Hickey, Miss Plummer, Miss Ricketts and Mr. Nichols, and elected officers to preside during the term as follows: James Howard ................ ..........,..........,................... P resident Adolph Piedmont .,...... .................,.... V ice-President Mary Britton ........,. ....... S ecretary and Treasurer Walter Cheney ...... ..................... C lass Reporter Leland Uurtice ....,...........,..,...................... Sargeant-at-Arms According to the well-known high school custom, we were ducked, and ducked properlyg but when the first onslaught was over, the upper-classmen certainly had to admit that we were equally as skillful in administering the H 2 0. About a month after our entry into school, we made our first appearance in the social world when we were tendered a reception Thirty-two nv :I ..V H S3 VWH N 'ID SSV -PM KW in the gymnasium by the upper-classmen. In December we held a class party in Unity Hall. This was a decided success. As our third social event, we served the incoming January freshmen a luncheon on the school campus. This is the first time an enter- tainment of this kind has been given, and it was so heartily enjoyed that many expressed the hope that it become the custom to welcome the mid-year freshmen in this fashion. So far these have been our only social activities, but before the term is out there will be a pic- nic or two. Do not judge us as bashful, timid "freshies," for there are freshmen to be found in every school activity. There are freshmen in the Boys' Gleeg freshmen in the Girls' Gleeg and freshmen in both Chorus and Orchestra. Also, in several of our members we have accomplished pianists, who play at school events. We have reason to feel proud of our part in athletics. On the Girls' Basketball Team we are represented bv three players, and two substitutes. In the Boys' Basket ball we were less fortunate., but are represented on the second team. In the high school inter- class track meet we obtained third position. defeating the sopho- mores bv a considerable marging and in the California Inter- scholastic Trackmeet, held at Modesto on April the seventh, it was the freshmen who were responsible for the greater part of Tur- lock's points. In baseball two of our members have won their T's. It was also the freshmen who won the two dollar prize offered to the class selling the most Lyceum tickets. A nd again it was the freshmen who worked the hardest to carry the new high school bonds. In debating we have an excellent record. Five of our members entered the try-outs, and three of them received positions on the second team. In addition to these honors we have the honor of having our president the yell-leader of the school. What more can we ask? However, the time has now come when our school year is slow- ly drawing to a clase, and we, who wear the colors of purple and white, are passing to sophomores, having lived up to our motto, Carpe diem-Seize the opportunity.

Class Reporter VVe started on our high school career January twenty-ninth. We will admit We felt very conceited, but the feeling soon changed to one of deepest distress. We were green-yes, very green, but of course that did not last forever. Our boys received the custom- ary number of "tubbings" and were forced to admit that upper- classmen are quite handy with a hose. We received a novel reception from the A freshmen class. in the form of a lawn party. Dainty refreshments both "good" and "plentiful" were served, which were enjoyed hugely by both the class and the faculty. As time Went on, we at last gained confidence enough to broaeh the subject of a party. It Was received enthusiastically and a charming party was held at the home of our President, Earl Var,- ner. The rooms were artistically decorated in the class colors, blue and white. Merry games were played, dainty refreshments were served and everybody declared he had had a good time. All in all, We have had a very successful beginning to our high school career. M. W. '20.

Forty A Wint-er's Tale ERNA SCHATTENBEBG '17 It was bitterly cold, and the snow was commencing to fall. The 'train whistled as it approached a long curve in the course of which the Garnon River must be crossed. The stream was now at the height of its beauty. It was frozen over except for the nar- row strip down the middle, where the water surged and boiled as if in resistance to its fetters. The ice was as clear as glass with a deepening touch of green. Black sticks of brush overhung the river, some of the tips being fastened Hrmly in the ice. The bank, lined with birch trees devoid of leaves, was lightly coated with snow. As the train rumbled across the bridge, Engineer Bradley, with his hand on the throttle, glanced out of the window. Suddenly his heart gave a terrihc bound. Did he see right? What was that half' buried in the middle of the stream? It was a child's face gazing fixed and glassy from the frozen surface. It was so near the opening that the dress was floating and struggling in the current in an effort to tear away. Ah! yes, there was a house several rods distant. Some poor child had wandered away from the warm hearth! He closed the throttle quickly, applied the brakes, and soon brought the train to a standstill. Then, bounding out of the cab. without a word of explanation to his fireman, he ran back to the bridge, down the river bank, and out onto the ice. As he ran past the coaches, the passengers threw up the windows, and thrust out their heads inquiringly. One fat red-faced woman called, "Have we had a wreck?" and then without waiting for a reply, began to scream "Help! Help!" The other passengers rushed first to one side of the car, then to the other. They soon sensed the cause of the commotion, and the men hastened out of the cars to lend their a.ssistance. ,The fussy stout woman sank exhaustedly into the upholstered seat, swaying from side to side, groaning. Mothers reached for their children and drew them on their laps. Others turned their faces to avoid the sad scene. One tender-hearted lady murmurd, "A little child frozen to death in the ice! How dreadful!" Outside, several men rushed madly upon the ice, but Bradley, accustomed to command, shouted, "Back!" and they obeyed. He grasped one man 's hand, and they formed a human chain, Forty-one lest the ice should break, for the current was swift and the danger was great. He slowly and cautiously approached the body, and when he reached it, he seized the hair and lifted. To his dismay, the hair gave way before the relentless ice. A cry of horror broke from the passengers. An instant and the fat man on the end received a blow which sent him staggering backward, and released his hold. Bradley had quickly loosened the body and thrown it with force on shore. for he felt himself slipping and too late heard the sound of crack- ing ice. He broke through, and struggled fiercely in the water for a few minutes, but soon seized the coat which one of the men had the presence of mind to reach out to him. While some of the men hastened to find a change of clothing, for Bradley's clothes were literally freezing upon him, the others turned their attention to the corpse. They found at their feet a little girl, who stood cuddling close to her the wet body which was almost as big as herself. "I'm- I'm so glad you saved my dolly, and that she isn't dead!" she said simply and then fled toward the home screaming the good news. A True lnciclent ln an Armenian Pastors Life ARAXIE VARTANIAN '17 Many strange things happen to people everywhere, and nar row escapes from death are not so uncommon as one might think, but few adventures are so startling as those which are experienced in the mountains and vallevs of Armenia. During the recital of these tales, my heart has burned with indignation at the injustice inflicted upon a noble people by their ignorant and tyrannical rulers. I recently heard such a story, which I shall endeavor to repeat as it was told to me. About twenty years ago, a young Armenian minister and his family, moved to the city of E-where he was to take the pastorate of one of the churches. His coming was hailed with joy, and many receptions were held in his honor. In return, he invited his parishoners to his home on a special occasion. While merry- making was at its height, some one, peering out of the window. whispered "Government officials l" The sight of these officers seldom fails to fill the people with fear and apprehension, for their appearance bodes no good. Upon the slightest provocation, or merely when the whim seizes them, they search people's houses for 'firearms or treasonable Forty-two papers. They search especially the homes of people suspected of belonging to the secret society of Jahnfidons or Revolutionists, and those of priests, pastors, schoolmasters, and other educated people, for it is feared that these inliuential folk may stir up re- bellion among the common people. On this occasion, merry making suddenly ceased, and the guests hastily departed. The search began at once, and the pas- tor and his wife were forced to stand by while the rude olilicers went through their belongings. All books and papers were thrust into sacks, the sacks sewed up, and the government seal put upon them. The books were of many kinds, Bibles, theological studies. books in Armenian, English, French, Russian and Turkish. The letters, which were also in many languages, were either friendly, or strictly business letters from people all over the world. But these perfectly harmless letters were suspected of being from allies in Russia, England, and France, who were plotting for the downfall of the Turkish Empire, and the books-well, who knew how dangerous was the man who had so many books! Besides the books and papers, there was a large medicine chest, which was handled with great care, for surely, the contents of all those numerous bottles and boxes must be used for making the bombs and other explosives. Truly, here was a most danger- ous man! When the pastor had come to this city, he had found in the house he was to occupy, a tiny bottle of invisible ink. He had put it in his medicine chest, and promptly forgotton all about it. He remembered it now when he saw the officers seize and seal the chest, but it was too late. The medicine case was handed over to three physicians, who examined its contents very carefully. One of them, a friend of the pastor's family, was much surprised at finding the ink. He went to see the pastor, and said, "If you had told me that that ink was in the chest, I could have hidden it with no trouble at all. It is too late now, and all I can do is to delay the report as long as possible, to give you a chance to plan what to say in your defense." The next day, some gendarmes appeared at the house, and asked the Honorable Eliiiendi to accompany tl1en1. Every one knew what it meant. He was going to prison! It might be years before he would be released, if he was fortunate enough to he re- leased at all. Men who had been thrown into prison on the most trivial charges, said that the chances were against him. His wife bravely bade him good-bye, but beneath her calm exterior, her heart was breaking. She tried to be cheerful, saying Forty-three that she was sure he would come back soon. Not until all had gone, did she give way to her tears. She knew he would not be properly fed in prison, and three times a day she prepared his meals and sent them to him. Not only must she send enough for him, but also plenty for his guards, for they were like so many animals, and had to be bribed, so to speak, with food, to treat the pastor well. She also knew that if she sent enough for only one man, the guards would help themselves, and her husband would go hungry. He was not put into a cell, but into a fairly large room with two or three guards. The trial had not begun, for the doctor was delaying his report, as he had promised. One day, while the prisoner was sitting on a divan, one of the guards was not far away, playing with his gun. After a while, the prisoner lay down, and at that moment, the gun was dis- charged, and a bullet entered the wall above him. Had not kind Providence prompted him to lie down, the bullet would have lodged in his head. The guard was greatly frightened and swore that it was accidental, and the matter was hushed up. Meanwhile, the letters were being read and translated. Most of them were so harmless, that even the Commissioner of Police, who seemed extremely anxious to get the pastor into trouble. could find nothing in them. There was one letter, however, that caught his attention, a letter written to the minister's wife by one of her sisters. Immediately, the gendarmes were sent to the parsonage, and very politely requested the Hanum to go with them to court. Drawing a veil over her face, she went. She found the court room crowded with young men, most of whom were smoking. She told a friend that the smoke made her dizzy, and that she could not answer questions properly in such atmosphere. Cigarettes were immediately put down, and windows opened. When the air had cleared somewhat, she was asked if she felt better. She ans- wered yes, and the examination began. She was asked many questions about her family, where the members lived, what their occupations were, and so on. Talking through her interpreter, although she understood the Turkish language perfectly, she answered the questions. Finally the letter was given her to read, and she was made to swear that it was hers. Then a paragraph was pointed out which read some thing like this: "We have had no word from any of our loved ones in B- FOI'l',y-f0l1I' for a long time. llas anything happened? Have you heard from them? Why do they not write? I am very anxious?" "What does this mean?" she was asked. "Who are these so-called loved ones?" They suspected her of corresponding with Jahnlidons. She explained that her mother and sisters were spoken of. When asked if she wrote to her mother and sisters herself, she answered that she always carried on her own correspondence. "Young woman," said an old man who, up to this time had been a very much interested spectator, "this punishment would not have come upon your head if you had not been educated. lt 's all right to be able to read, but you had no business learning to write. No girl should be taught to write, for writing' will bring' trouble upon yourself and others," and he went on mumbling to himself and his neighbors throughout the trial. , The young' woman who had been thus publicly reproved for having received an education, went on answering the questions, always through her interpreter. Her answers were written down. by two clerks and she was asked to sign the report. When her in- terpreter pronounced it correct, she asked, "Shall I sign it in Armenian or Turkish?" Should she sign in Armenian or Turkish! A buzz went around the room. A woman could sign her name in two lan guages! She was told to sign in Armenian. This she did, while all stared open-mouted. She was then allowed to go home, but the letters were carefully kept for future reference. Vvllell cross-examination of the minister began, many able men offered to defend him, but he said he would rather do it hime self. Many unnecessary. questions were asked, and the trial was greatly lengthened. The examiners went around in a circle, and came out where they had started. The young minister, however, had one strong argument which he sprung on them quite unex- pectedly, and for which they had no answer. He said that the house which his family now occupied, had always been the home of pastors, missionaries, and doctors and he could not be held accountable for anything they might have left there, furthermore, it could not be proved that he had used the ink. Toward the end of the trial, which had lasted over two months, the Police Commissioner, who had been so anxious to have the innocent man convicted, was himself found guilty of offense against the state. He was deprived of his sword, and signs of office, and was cast into prison. Then it was understood that he had been trying to establish his loyalty to the government Forty-five by convicting the minister, of treasonable intentions. The man who was chosen to fill his o.1Qce was not so hostile as his prede- cessor had been, and things began to look a little less hopeless. At this time, when excitement and interest in the case were at their highest point, no more news could be received from the court. The minister's wife tried to be brave and patient, but it was hard. She jumped up eagerly at every footstep only to be disappointed, for it was always the same story, "No news!" She was alone, save for her three year old daughter. She had not one to lean upon. Her mother and sisters were in distant cities, and she could not write to them for her letters would be seized by government officials and their contents misinterpreted. Such suspense is hard to bear, and she began to show signs of sleepless nights. She looked pale and haggard, for the cruel agony was eating at her heart. One morning, when she had about given up hope, an old Turkish woman knocked at her door. "Is the Hanum in?" she croaked in her broken voice. Evi- dently she had bad news, for she seemed quite happy. "I hear they are going to hang the master some time today, out here be- neath your window." If ever a person deserved to be throttled it was the old hag, for rushing so eagerly to tell the awful news to the poor, heart- broken woman. If what she had just been told was true, the hus- band would probably hang from one of the large trees almost beneath the window. The wife does not now recall what she said or did at this time. She can only remember that her agony in- creased a hundred fold. Her nerves were taut and at the snap- ping point, when late in the afternoon, the boy who daily carried meals to the prison house, came rushing in. "Any one been here?" he panted. No one had. What would have been the use of anyone's com ing? All hope was gone. "Avedis! tidings !" shouted the excited boy. "The reverend is coming home! He'll be here in a few minutes." She felt herself getting dizzy. She must give the boy a baksheash-gift-for being the iirst to bring the good news. She would presently. Just now, she suddenly felt very tired, and there was a buzzing in her ears. She wished her knees wouldn 't shake so. This would never dog she must collect herself. She heard excited and happy voices outside. The door opened, and her husband rushed in. Their little daughter, hear- ing her beloved father's voice, toddled in to him from the next room, with a cry of joy, and, as he gathered both his loved ones in his arms a happier, more thankful trio, could nowhere be found.

Forty-seven 7 7 Alcohol and The Laborer HAROLD MCMURRY '17 Ours is a mercenary age. Everything is expressed in terms of' money. It is an age of efficiency, because efficiency makes more money. This fact makes alcohol's relation to the laborer the most important aspect of the liquor question today, and to this relation is perhaps due more largely than to any other phase, liquor's lowered position. For while the relation of alcohol to race prob- lems, to crime, and to insanity is important, these matters do not so directly affect, the finacial prosperityof the present genera' tion. But the evil financial effects of alcohol are felt in the labor market almost immediately and hence this relation seems all- important to the American people today. The working man and his laboring and living conditions have been the subject of investigation by municipalities and by both state and national legislatures. These investigations have re- peatedly shown the detrimental effects of alcohol, not only upon the laboring man who drinks, but upon the whole labor world. The first important aspect of this relation is its direct effect of alcohol upon the efiiciency of the man who uses it. Little needs to be said concerning this other than that 77 per cent of the farmers, 82 per cent of the business men, and 88 per cent of the manufacturers demand total abstinence from their employees. This fact in itself shows the effect of liquor on a laborer's effi- ciency. However, this angle of viewing the situation has receivezl so much attention that this paper will be limited to showing the evils in the labor market resulting from this traffic. The greatest plea of the liquor interests has been that labor is benefitted by the existence of this industry, since there are em- ployed in its manufacture and sale men who would be thrown out of work by its abolition. This argument is based on what is known in economics as the "make-work" fallacy. Liquor men ignore the fact that if the liquor trade were destroyed, the capital invested in it would, of necessity, be transferred to another enter' prise, and whatever that enterprise was, it would also emnlov labor. ' But not only is this argument unsound: those who uphold it 'This paper won the local prize of flve dollars, the state prize of twenty-five dollars, and the national prize of flfty dollars given yearly by the Wornen's Christian Temperance Union for the best essay written by a high school student Forty-eight expose themselves to another attack. The capital invested in this traffic is not only a waste to society in that it p1'.0duceS 21 poison, but if this capital were employed in other industries, more men would be employed and these men would receive a larger per cent of the profits. For instance, out of every dollar spent for beer, seven cents returns to the wage earner, and ten cents goes to the farmer. Out of a dollar spent for whiskey, eighteen cents goes to the wage earner and live cents to the farmer. Out of a dollar spent for bread, sixteen cents goes to the wage earner and thirty-seven cents goes to the farmer. The liquor manufacturer pays 37.63 for wages out of every S100 he receives from the con' sumerg but the manufacturer of lumber pays nearly three times as much, the manufacturer of furniture more than three times as much, and of vehicles nearly 'dye times as much out of every 3100. Labor's share in the manufacture of malt, distilled and virions liquors is less than 10 per cent, in other industries, labor's share is 55 per cent. Liquor manufacturers employ but one-seventh of the labor and capital invested, that the other industries do. lf the capital now employed in the manufacture and sale of liquor were employed in making and selling twenty necessities of life, it would give employment to all the men now employed in the in- dustry and 1,300,000 more! So far the discussion has been limited to those who are directly influenced by the liquor industry. There is also the influ- ence of liquor on the labor market outside of its production and sale, and to the working man who does not use alcohol. Alcohol demoralizes the labor market in such a manner that the wages of those, who are in no wav connected with its manufacture, sale, or use. are lowered through no fault of theirs. The man who uses alcohol compels his wife and children, because of non-support, to earn their living. This influx of women and children on the labor market lowers the wages of men employed, or even throws them out of work. Men, sodden with drink, resort to purely muscular work for a living because the higher centers of brain action, judg- ment and care, are superseded by mere brute strength. Thev then fall to the lowest rung of the industrial ladder, where the already crowded labor market becomes glutted. Temporarily, the tem- perate skilled worker may profit by this reduction to his ranks. He has the advantage of a sort of monopoly. However, this is true onlv so long as competition is the sole operating force,-other powerful factors enter. The lowest classes, degraded by this influx of liquor-benumbed labor and forced to compete with it, adopt the lowest standard of living and consumption, the prime Forty-nine causes of production, and this lessening of demand then reacts upon all laboring classes. It is a primary law of economics that the satisfaction of present wants creates new ones, but if the desires are left unsatis- fied, the standard of living is gradually lowered, often to a mere primitive subsistence. It is among this unprotesting class of un fortuntes that the capitalist can reap his fortune, and all labor is deprived of its rightful share in the fruits of production. The desire for alcohol tends to create a further demand for itself. It does not create new wants, but replaces the more healthful ones. As more of one's normal demands are satisfied, more wants are created and so other industries- are benefitted. The more the liquor demand is satisfied, the more the other industreis suffer. 'Every industry, which does its share toward increasing the Wealth of the community, should either add to, or distribute the possessions of society. It should take some natural resource or raw product and change it into a product of more utility to the community, or else it should aid in distributing that product Where it is needed. The liquor factory takes grains and fruits, valuable in yielding energy and gives, in turn, an article which has the opposite effects. Whatever is a waste to society is a waste to labor as well, and the gains to society through the existence of the liquor traffic are a minus quantity. Drink injures the labor market most where it cuts down the standard of living in the family and prevents the enjoyment of life. Anything which decreases the ability to buy, or blights the mental and moral qualiiications necessary to the laborer, injures production and wages more than any other force can possibly do. The trouble with the whole labor organization today is not over- production but under-consumption and uneven distribution. As has been-shown above, drink blights consumption,-it also is a powerful force making for uneven distribution of wealth. Sobriety creates a whole new series of wants and gives mental strength and power of co-operation necessary to see that these wants are gratified. Since a working man's standard of living is raised by temperance, he will not work for so little as before, and his sobriety enables him to enforce to a larger degree his demands. A laborer, sodden with drink, is unable to hold his own in the struggle with capital. Whatever is one's belief concerning the justification of strikes one thing is admitted: they are the most effective means the laborer has to enforce his demands against capital. When saloon viciousness and drink corrupt it, the strike becomes a public menace which society will not tolerate. If the power to strike is Fifty to remain, drunken labor must go. The Hscabsl' come from the heaviest drinking classes. Liquor tends to excite strikers to destroy property and endangers lives. Drink ' is an enemy to union organization in that it interferes with the self-restraint necessary to carry out co-operative work. The one eHective argument that the liquor interests use is that the abolition of the traliic will cause confusion in the labor market. Men would be thrown out of work not only in the liquor business itself but in the industries related to it,J as the grape industry in California. Granting this to be, in a measure, true, we should look at the question from all sides. When we realize the amount of evil it does and then remember that at the longest it will take only a de- cade for labor to recover from the change, this argument loses its force. Conditions are the same in this instance as before the industrial revolution in both England and America. Men argued then as now, that the advent of machinery would throw laborers out of work. It did, but who would want to return to hand pro- duction today? Why not apply this same reasoning to the liquor traffic? The Spirit of l776 HAROLD MCMURRY '17 "The Glory of the PRESENT is to Make the FUTURE F ree." In these simple words of Van Dyke is concentrated the essen- tial spirit of America, Which has always marked her deeds as a nation, and which first reached its full significance at the period under consideration. In all the actions and writings of the patriots the opposition was not directed so much against the acts of the British government, trivial as most of them in themselves were, as against the spirit which prompted those acts which might. in future times, affect those ideals which the colonists had set up for themselves. The Revolution was no common strife of momentary interest. It marked the appearance on the horizon of the political world of a brilliant star which has constantly become brighter and which 'This composition won the state prize of twenty-flve dollars offered by the California Chapter of The Sons of the American Revolution for the best essay on the assigned topic written by a high school student. Fifty-one opposition has only made more luminous. The Revolution was no mere complaint of a few people against petty taxes. It repre- sented the noble disapproval of the underlying political and economic sophisms which were coneretely expressed by seemingly unimportant taxes. We must not, however, in considering this subject, regard England as an enemy of the colonies, or the colonies as enemies of England. This attitude of mind has caused much bitter feeling in times past. It was not a struggle between two nations, but a strife between two parties, representing different economic and political systems. Some in America upheld England's policy as firmly as did the administrators at Westminsterg and some in Eng- land, represented by Fox, Chatham, and Burke, were as much patriots as John Adams and George Washington. Nor must we look upon the Revolution selfishly,-as merely our own struggle for freedom. In its results it belongs as much to Britain as to us, for it caused the English people to regain their freedom while it helped us to preserve ours. It was as though the wheel of British liberty, which had begun revolving with the intro- duction of the Magna Oharta, and had whirled back and forth be tween two ideals of government, had, during its revolution, loosed from its circumference a new conception of liberty in the colonists, which being freed from its orbit, had traveled in a straight line to its natural evolution, while the wheel, which had thrown it into that straight path, had traveled back again in its limited orbit. Then came the clash when that mother government tried to assert her power over the people, who for more than a century, had not been aware of that power. The liberty of the colonies, whirled from its mother wheel, had realized that that wheel had whirled again to the starting point. It is hardly necessary to say that the predominating spirit of the colonies was freedom. Upon this as a foundation were based all other feelings-all actions were animated by the ideal of free dom. But remember it was Freedom-not Independence-even as late as 1776. For in spite of the fact that the idea of inflepend- ence was probably always latent in the colonies, and though that was the year of our immortal Declaration, had England suggested some true means toward freedom. with the guarantee that it would be carried out, the colonists would have laid down their arms. Because of this very spirit, the patriots have been subjected to attacks by numerous historians. They have been called double- faced, for with all their protestations of loyalty, they showed their insincerity by rebelling, and some, who had been most prominent in assuring England of their loyalty, signed the Declaration. But Fifty-two these charges are false. The Declaration was adopted by these leaders only When they saw that the administrators at W est- minster were unable ever to appreciate the real spirit of the col- onies. They realized that, what they at first looked upon as a tragedy, was now a necessity. There are five causes for the spirit of Freedom in the colonies which show how this spirit evolved and, in a measure, define it and show its nature. The first of these is the colonists' descent. They were Anglo-Saxon and had Anglo-Saxon ideals of freedom. Large numbers had emigrated from Britain when this spirit was at its maximum, and in them the very highest. Now the Anglo- Saxon ideal of freedom has somehow always been concretely summed up in the idea of the inseparabilitv of taxation and repre- sentation, and in taxing the colonists without their consent. the home government struck the tap-root of their liberty. The energy of the religion of the northern colonists was one of the greatest forces for independence. The relation of these religious principles to political affairs is difficult to trace as com- pared with the distinct and positive agencies in secular affairs, but there is no doubt that it was present. Protestantism, always a religion of dissent, was here crystalized into a dissidence of dis- sent. They had left England when this spirit was highest and in -them the highest of all. They represented the Protestants of the Protestants. It was not fanatical, but always held the patriots in check and gave a peculiar religious color to their actions never before or after manifested in any political revolution. All was' attempted with a sublime solemnity which has since given an peculiar altruistic attitude to all our governmental transactions with other nations. In the South, Where this religious power was not present, an- other force took its place. The slave system, which had grown up there, had given a peculiar regard for freedom to those not in sub- jection. They looked upon their freedom as a privilege, and while this sentiment was not so noble as that animating the north. it was as powerful, and lent al certain degree of necessary and proper pride to the total of strong national qualities given by this period to future generations. The provincial assemblies also built up this spirit. The col- onists had a share in their own government which they had never had at home. They were gradually inspired with lofty sentiments, and they formed a strong aversion to whatever tended to deprive them of their rights. From this arose a more Widespread education than was pos- sible in England at that time. Their part in the government in- Fifty-three spired a desire for education in those things which would best tit them for their task. lt is said that more books on law were sold in the colonies at this period than in all Britain herself. Through this education the colonists gained an acute sagacity and an in- quisitive spirit Which soon enabled them to see the dangerous principle underlying the taxes, Which, on the surface, looked harmless and just. Nothing strikes us with more force when we study this period than the sanity with Which the patriots undertook their great en- terprise. A bond of union and sympathy sprang up in the colonies at this time as is shown in the expression of condolence which Vir- ginia formally rendered to Massachusettes upon the closing of the port of Boston. True, it did not last long, but it served its purpose at the time of the greatest need, and when the difficulty of com- munication and the conflicting interests of the colonies are con- sidered, it is remarkable that it was present at all. There was danger of anarchy, yet there came out of it all one of the noblest governments man has yet created. There was no common pas- sion, there were no petty outbursts of hate, there was a serious, religious attitude of mind-an example for future Americans. We see in it all a just pride in freedom, a singular moderation. a skepticism of traditions, a shrewd sagacity which penetrated shams, an essential religiousness, a sublime nobleness of purpose, and assumption of spiritual, intellectual, and individual liberty, which, although present in our national spirit and ideals still, is increasingly difficult to find, since it is so covered up by the sordid, mercenary motives which seem to characterize us today.

ROBERT QU1c.LEY'19 In the autumn of 1915 great excitement was stirred up in Washington, D. C., by the reported murder of Sherwood Mc-V Mannis, a government official who was a member of the committee to disburse funds appropriated for Pacihc Coast and Philippine fortifications. He was the son of a wealthy banker and politician of New York City. He had been somewhat Wild and erratic in his youth, and had been expelled from Harvard, during his junior year, on account of one of his escapades. This pleased him, for he was finding it rather hard to keep up in his college work. The in- fluence of his father secured the government position for him. It will be remembered that McMannis createduquite a sensation, some years ago, when he went to Mexico and married a wealthy Japa- nese woman, whose father was a Japanese army official. He, however, was deeply in love with his wife, a bright woman, who had a great influence over him, and cared nothing for the com- ments upon this marriage. Q The crime, which had disturbed the whole of Washington, was thought to have occurred in McMannis' house on Fourth Avenue, about three o'clock, on the morning of September 27, 1915. The house to the left of McMannis' was occupied by the Japanese Con- sul, and that on the right by John Simmons, another ofiicial of our government. ' The room in which the tragedy took place was a large one on the ground floor, used by McMannis for private purposes. His safe was located there, and it was supposed to hold his valuables and his wife's jewels. A short time before the tragic event, he l1ad made his wife a birthday present of a diamond necklace. Mc- Mannis' bedroom, which he occupied alone, adjoined the room where the safe was located. The remainder of the sleeping apart- ments were upstairs. On the morning of the murder, the house-hold was awakened, about four-thirty o'clock, by an explosion, and the butler rushed down the stairs. McMannis was nowhere to be found. Every- thing was in wild confusion. Bureau drawers were pulled open and their contents strewn about the room. Chairs were over- turned and the roller top of the desk broken in. The door of the safe had been blown off by nitro-glycerine. The queerlv orna- mented and costly stand in the corner near the window, was over- Fifty-five turned and broken to fragments. The roses, that had been placed there fresh, only the morning before, were trampled under foot, There were evidences of a frightful struggle. Blood was spat tered over the walls and floor, and a dirk, covered with blood, was lying on the floor partly covered by papers. From all appear- ances, theft was the motive. When the mistress and her maid arrived, they added to the confusion by becoming hystericall. However, the mistress soon regained her composure and called the police. Chief-of-Police Wagner made a hasty examination. and found blood, covered by papers, and the door leading to the hallway open. He instructed his officers to make a search for McMannis. While they were gone, he continued his examination and dis- covered that the window, to the west, was partly open. The shrubbery beneath it was trampled, and the window itself gave evidence of having been forced open by means of a jimmy. While he was still engaged in his investigations, the searching party re- turned and reported that they were certain they had evidence of the body's having been dragged or carried to the small shed in the second lot beyond. They exhibited a piece of nightshirt stained with blood. They found the shed burned, and, to all appearances. the body with it. The fire department had been called out, but arrived too late to save the shed. From the observation he had taken and the report of his assistants, Chief Wagner expressed it, as his opinion, that the motive for the crime was theft, that two or more men were in- volved, that McMannis was awakened while they were drilling to blow the safe, and had gone into the room, that he was assaulted, and fought desperately, but was finally overcome by numerous wounds inflicted by a dirkg that he had been hastily carried to the shed, and the shed set on fire, and that the robbers had returned. completed the drilling, and then blown the safe. After this was done and before the arrival of the butler, they gathered up what valuables they could and departed. A search for the criminals was vigorously prosecuted and a number of arrests made, but there was little or no evidence against any of the prisoners and one after another they were freed. The government officials, not satisfied with the report of Chief Wagner, employed a young detective named Perry Flynn, who had recently shown marked ability in ferreting out crimes. The first thing that Flynn did was to place a strict guard about the house, and then he personally conducted a minute search of the premises. The result seemed a plain case of murder for theft, but the strict Watch was still maintained and no person Fifty-six allowed to enter or depart. However, he was puzzled by the ap- parent composure of Mrs. McMannis. He wondered if she had a lover. Flynn, being unfamiliar with the Japanese, was uncertain whether to attribute her calmness to the stoicism of her race, or to a lack of grief. He spent much time Watching her movements. His employers were urging him to express his opinion, as to what might have been the motive of the crime, as all arrests made by Chief Wagner had been discharged for lack of evidence. But he refused to make any statement. He must have more time, he said. ' Although Flynn said nothing, he had numerous unconnected clews. He was convinced that theft was not the motive. On his examination of the window, he decided that if there were mur- derers, they had not gained entrance by the window, for while there were numerous footprints, they had all been made by one person. Upon examination, he noticed that though tl1e window itself showed evidence of having been splintered by a tool, the sill would have suffered a like damage. This confirmed his sus- picion that the window had been opened from the inside. He carefully examined the ashes and tl1e remains of the burnt shed. While he gathered no clew, he picked up the almost con- sumed paw of a dog, which customarily occupied the shed. Just why he took the paw, he did not know. Mrs. McMannis, growing restless under the prolonged con- finement and the strict watches that were being kept, asked per- mission of Mr. Flynn to visit the Japanese Consul, next door. This Flynn Hatly refused. Very shortly after, in another examination of the hall, Flynn discovered a blood stain. He became very much excited and im mediately 'phoned Dr. Small, the eminent chemist. Flynn was sure that that stain had not been there before that day. When Dr. Small arrived, Flynn asked him to examine the blood on the wall and the stains in the room, to ascertain if it was the blood of the same person. After the examination, Dr. Small pronounced the stain in the hall to be that of human blood, but the stains on tl1e floor, those of an animal. Flynn immediately called in his guards and ordered them to make a still more thorough examination. He sounded all the walls, and one in the hallway, which was supposed to be solid, gave a hollow sound. He knew of no room that lay behind it, therefore he ordered the panel removed, disclosing a small space. "There, said Flynn, "is the criminal!" And he dragged Sherwood McMannis himself, from the hiding place. McMannis was not dead 5-but why was he in hiding? Fifty-seven The room, though small, was well stocked with provisions, but the most important thing, aside from the find of McMannis, was the finding of a traveler's grip, which contained copies of plans of all the main fortifications of the Pacific Coast and the Philip- pines. Breaking down after being caught red-handed, McMannis confessed that, through the infiuence of his wife and the assistance of the Japanese Consul, he had prepared to commit treason to his country. He had held a position where it was possible to make copies of the principal fortifications. This he had done. He was to take them to Japan as soon as the excitement cooled down and he could make his escape in disguise. His wife was to collect his life insurance and settle up his affairs in Washington, and then return to her native land, where he expected to join her. He felt if he were considered dead, he would never be dis- covered. He then evolved the idea of making it appear that he had been murdered and his body destroyed. One of his neighbors owned a pet dog with which McMannis had made friends, and on the night in question had lured to his home. He had then killed it with a dirk, spattered the blood about the room, and purposely left the dirk where it had been found. He had dragged the body of the dog back to the shed and set it aire. The body of the dog had been entirely consumed except the foot which Flynn had found. McMannis then returned, scattered the contents of the drawers on the floor, and blew the safe, which he had previously prepared. This done he went to the hiding place, which he had personally constructed in the building of the house, and closed the secret panel from the inside. His confinement became more and more trying as the days passed and the watchers still continued their vigilence. This in- formation was conveyed to him by his wife, as opportunity pre- sented. His cramped quarters permitted scarcely any exercise. and the uncertainty had driven him to the verge of madness. Plan after plan he had conceived, to prove more thoroughly that he had been murdered, only to abandon them as being impractic- able. He then thought of the idea of spattering the hallway, with his own blood, to make more certain that his body had been dragged through it. The more he thought of this plan, the stronger the idea took possession of him, until, on being informed by his wife that the coast was clear, he emerged, cut his thumb, and spattered the blood where it had been found. This proved his undoing. After the confession of McMannis, the government authori' ties requested Japan to recall her consul. This was done. Mrs. Fifty-eight McMannis was permitted to accompany him on his return to Japan, but McMannis, after a sensational trial, was convicted of higl1 treason and paid the penalty with his life. A Visit to Hades BERTHA GOLLONG '20. Walking, weary walking, along Ocean Stream brought me at last to Hades. Such a dark, cold, gruesome place! Six eyes be- longing to Cerebrus, stared at me so I could hardly dig a pit around the big white stone that marks the entrance. After pour- ing due libations to the gods and the dead, I found that I had for gotten the sheep. What could be done! Just then Zeus thunderedf it was a sign that I didn't need the sheep. Then they came-the strengthless dead. Around all sides of the pit they flocked with awful wailing. All my friends, yea, every high school student was there. First came the spirit of Mr. Lawson. "Are you janitor of Hades now?" I asked. "Janitor!" Ile looked almost offended, then swelling up with pride, said, "I'm substitute judge for Minos. You know, sometimes he takes a vacation, then I take his place." So we talked, he telling' me all of his pleasures and troubles. Now came the spirit of Miss Plummer. She was teaching the Achseans algebra.. and oh, it took so much explaining. she said. Poor Miss Plummer, that's what she got for explaining so much to us. Mr. Hester, when I wan't looking, sneaked a big swallow of the honey, wine, and water mixture, and instantly knew me. We talked a long time together of high school days. "Don't you notice that dog-house over in the corner? he asked. Guess what I saw when I looked there? It was old T. H. S. "Why !" I gasped. "It was too small for the wood shed, so Pluto said it might be all right for Cerberus to sleep in." - Away over beyond the crowd of spirits I saw Miss Long talk- ing to Odysseus. I know he liked her because a gust of wind brought fragments of their conversation to my ears. "My gentle, fair-cheeked, rosy-fingered maiden?'? and such phrases as 7! Fifty-nine these he said, but heedful Penelope was ever near, and side-long glances from her rather quieted poor Odysseus. Miss Ricketts and Mr. Learned were too busy playing tennis with the Phzeacians, to notice what was going on around them. I wasn't one bit surprised to see Augusta and Pat leisurely strolling up and down the River of Forgetfulness. "Sleepy" said he liked Hades very much. I wondered if he applauded every time the judges made a decision. Mr. Nichols and the first team were practicing basket ball because they were going to play the Cyclops. I hoped that they'd win. I saw the "midgets" in the broad fields of Asphodel. They were picking pale, sickly-looking flowers to give to Cassandra,- the king of Troy's daughter, with whom they were very much in love. I think she liked "Boots" best, for he was always by her side. Mr. Martin was trying in vain to help Tantalus get a fig or an olive. In his fruitless efforts he fell into the pool. Such is the reward of a good heart. From far off came sounds of singing. Looking around, I saw Miss Barnard trying to teach old Charon, the boat-man, to sing "Cn the Beach at Wai - ki - ki." Charon had a beautiful bass voice but the music, seemingly, didn't please him. James Bristow, also, I' saw in bitter agony, standing in a huge tank into which water was continually flowing. He was given a small bucket, and in order to keep from drowning had to dip out the water without a moment's rest. Russel Boner had a grievious punishment inflicted upon him. He was chopping away on a giant tree, but just as it was about to fall, a strong wind brought it back to place again. So forever he must keep on chopping. Each morning the Myrmidons take their typing lesson from Miss Grant. Every Monday they have a speed test, and I was told that they were then able to write at the great speed of twenty-four words per minute. Achilles, himself, is the pet, though he learns his lesson least. Miss Hickey and Miss Coleman go about consoling the poor, weary spirits in need of sympathy. All of Hades, when in trouble, goes to them for advice and consolation. Sybil and Alice were giving Polyphemus instruction in debat- ing. When they were not with him, which was very seldom, Mr. Porter had talks with him concerning the care of sheep. Miss Mann was Pluto's favorite-CI wondered if it was be- cause he liked good things to eath, and often in the summer time . Sixty they were seen together, but of course this was only when Perse- phone Was visiting her mother. Anna Margaret, all say, charmed Telemachus with her beauti- ful voice and ukulele. Miss Reed was giving the Ciconians an examination in Eng- lish. In her presence they were very timid, but learned quite well. Menelaus, good at the war-cry, couldn't beat' James Howard when it came to yelling. He often tried to surpass him, but al- ways the loudest, floating through the air, came the wonderful "Rat-a-te-trating" of James. Harold McMurry's wonderful "deep thinking ability won him many honors and he was Pluto 's most trusted legal adviser. How sorry I felt for Roland Hook! For some horrible mis take, the gods punished him severely. With his nose, he had to roll a small markle up a steep hill. When he got it up about one yard, lo, down again it slipped, and so from day to day he must keep up until at last he gets the marble to the top. I am afraid that time will never come. ' Uheryl Penwell was dressed in a beautiful white gown and was the royal hair-dresser to Persephone. When I was standing among the dead, I overheard Clytaem- nestra say that she was going to change the Ut" in her name to Hd" because then, it would be more like Ulyde's name.. I could tell' by her eyes that she liked him. r Opal and Orlo, for some reason, had forgotten to have coins put in their mouths, so could not get into Hades for another cen- tury. They Were wailing and gnashing their teeth, but it didn 't bring them any nearer. Hilmar Hultberg, with his brotherly affections, tried to sooth poor Ariadne and make her forget her first lover, Theseus. But his efforts were in vain, for Ariadne's heart was hard as stone. Montana's cares were all taken away, and nothing but pleas- ure and enjoyment awaited her on the other side of the River of F orgetfulness. Lawrence Dwyer and Norman Humble were repenting of their sins, and with hearts almost breaking, they crept into the dog-house to hide their fast falling tears. Suddenly from inside of Hades came a fearful clamor. Pale terror seized me, and, hearing Zeus thunder, I knew my time was up. In the background were many departed spirits with whom I yearned to talk, but I knew I must obey the summons. With a sorrowful glance of farewell, I started upward, and when rosy- fingered Dawn arose from her couch, I made my weary way along Ocean Stream once more. 77 Sixty-one A Sad Mistake WELLS HIVELY '20 "l'was a dreamy day in summer, The birds a-iiyin' roun, 'llhe bees flew roun' the flowers, With a drowsy hummin' soun'. Samanthy was a-washin' The dresses, sheets an' all, An 'on the line she hung 'em, lVhere they danced like at a ball. Hiram was a-plowin' VVith Mike an' Bill an' Jake An' folks was allers talkin' 'Bout the furrows he could make. Says he, "We better stop here- You need a little rest, It's the hottest day this year, An'-well I'll be blest!" H e stopped an' gazed out yonder, To the cornfield's 'bundant yield. "lf there ain't some one out there, A-hunting in my field!" "Hey, Stranger! tlan't yo' read? I writ that sign all right! 'Privatel' Uain't yer read it? No huntin' on this site!" But the stranger heeded not, An' slowly swayed a-roun' As if a wantin' somethin' 'Phat could not there be foun'. Sixty-tw: Sixty-three Hiram enraged arose, An' tramped across the field, He 'lowed he'd teach that stranger To go huntin' in his field. "Dum it !" he exclaimed As he crossed a barb-wire fence, "Samanthy 'll scold me now- I've went an' tore me pants!" 'Phe stranger did not move, But kept his back to Hi, Who crept a slow behin' him, To ketch him on the sly. Hi was almost to him Half hidden in the mass, When he caught his foot and tumbled Down headlong on the grass. "Dum it !" he exclaimed Much louder than before. He arose, dust covered, angered, In his eye dark, ruddy gore! He stopped-"Well, I swan!" he cried, He looked like he 'd got a hard blow For the hunter he despised, Was his own home-made scarecrow!

Wliile all the members of the student body and the faculty have helped in compiling' this annual, special thanks must be given to Mr. Learned, for his untiring efforts to make this issue a SUCCESS. Sixty-four Mug luzrlv Editorials . 'llhere was more discussion and debate than was ever known in the history of the high school, when the student body voted early in May to discontinue the publication of this annual and give the money either to the Belgian Relief, the Red Cross, or to local charity. A week or two later, the matter wa.s reconsidered and it was decided to continue the publication of the Alert, but to divide the proceeds from the annual play between the Red Cross and the Local Relief Association. Because of the lack of money which this caused, it was decided that the Alert should be sold for one dollar per copy instead of Hfty cents as heretofore. While this whole matter has caused much hard feeling and bitter debate, it has had several good effects. It has stimulated an interest in the annual, and a large majority of the student body have helped in the sale of the Alerts, so that, though the price has been increased 100 per cent, more copies have been sold than ever before. ii Each year the school has a watchword which expresses the prominent characteristic of that year. Last year out watchword was "co-operation," this year, our forces being collected, our watchword has been "spreading-out." Not only have our mem- bers increased, but we have added several new undertakings to our list of school activities. Besides the lyceum course and the annual play, we have added the Senior "Follies," and the operetta, given by the combined musical organizations. ' A new precedent has been set also in the use of the money from these undertakings. Heretofore, all the profits from high school activities have gone into the treasury for the publication of the Alert, so that many have looked upon the annual as a huge maw which swallowed up the work of the entire year, with nothing to show for it at the end of a year or two. One hundred dollars from the operetta went into the treasury this year, and the re mainder was used to buy records for our Victrola. The money from the play went to charity. It would be well if classes in coming years would follow this precedent, and mve, uniformly, one hund- red dollars from the play, the "Follies," and the operetta to the student body for the Alert, and use the balance for decorations, and equipment since we will probably have a new high school build ing soon. This plan would leave some permanent memorial in the school to show the work of preceding classes. I Another thing that was done this year that is Worthy of note was the paying of a bill for the publishing of an Alert six years ago. Sixty-sesen J l Y Y-egrk X' ' cg .

Mr. Nichols sent for a shot, a dis- cus, and a javelin, and the manual training training boys con- structed some hurdles. After school, we went to a vacant lot and practised the field sports, iinishing with a mile run. - An interclass meet was held and it resulted in a victory for the juniors. The juniors made 74VZ points, the seniors 46V3 points, the freshmen 28, and the sophomores 4. Bowden was the highest man in individual scoring, making 1715 points, and Arthur Sinclair was a close second with 17 points. A team was chosen and we decided to enter the county meet. Modesto, with her many year's experience, won with several points to spare, but we are proud of the showing our boys made. In the unlimited class we were second, scoring 21 points, but in the limited class but three of our men entered, who scored, 15 points making a total of 36. Farris, Lucid, Boner, Chappel, Art Sinclair and Mc- Enroe all scored in the Held sports. The next meet was at Ripon for all teams in the county, exclud- ing Modesto, who was not considered in our class. In this meet we took second place only a few points behind Ripon who won first. Farris, Chappell, Bob Sinclair, Pierson, Hultberg and Art Sinclair did our scoring. We would have scored higher had not Ripon, who had changed the schedule, omitted several events, because they had no men for them.

This year We held the interclass games as we did last year. The seniors led out by defeating the sophomores, and the juniors followed, beating the freshmen. Unfortunately we couldn't continue the regular schedule of the interclass contests, as our league games started soon. Then tl1e juniors and the sen- iors met for the iinal game, which was fast and furious to the end. The wary seniors were too much for their younger brothers, and won 27 to 19. Practice Games V Gustine Ponies bid for the first game of the season, and we went to Gustine with more hope than practice. We had a good game, but were defeated, 39-20. ' Nov. 30. Stockton Athletics were our next opponents, and we played at Stockton. From the beginning it was some game, and anybody's game, until the last minute when Stockton scored twice, winning, by a score 37-33. Dec. 15.-Lodi, our old rivals, came to meet us, and a hard fought game was the result. We led all through the game, but were not out of danger any time. The score was 36-28. Dec. 23. Denair, wishing to make a place for herself among the other teams, played us at Turlock. We got lots of practice shooting baskets and won by a score of 78-12. Dec. 30. Gustine vs. Turlock. We decided to avenge our previous defeat and won by a score of 52-35. Feb. 10. Stockton High challenged us and we went to defend our reputation. The game was a fight from beginning to end, in- dividually and collectively. We overcame a lead from the first half and won, 37-31. Feb. 17. Turlock vs. Lodi. This was one of the fastest and best games of the season, though we lost by a score of 34-21. League Games 1. Turlock vs. Merced. Merced forfeited the game. 2. Modesto vs. Turlock. Modesto, our most formidable op- ponents of last year, came back strong this year. She tied the Seventy-nine score at the beginning of the second half, but in the last part we scored, and won 29-19. ' 3. Turlock vs. Ceres. Ceres was weakened by the loss of her old players, and we won easily with the score of 55-20. Goodrich made his debut in this game and scored twelve baskets. 4. Merced vs. Turlock. Merced has a fine looking bunch of fellows, but enough said. We scored at will, and won by a margin of 102-4. . 5. Turlock vs. Modesto. Modesto played 2 on an outdoor court this year, and this put us-at a disadvantage. The game was anybody's till the last minute.' Then Modesto won, 29-23. 6. Modesto vs. Turlock at Stockton. VVe were tied with Modesto for first place in our division and played the deciding game at Stockton. In this game Patterson and Pierson tore loose, and gave remarkable exhibitions. Patter- son shot baskets with his eyes shut, and Pierson guarded so well, that Moore, their crack forward, didn 't even get a shot. The game was hot, and we won 31-17. 8. Fresno vs. Turlock. This is the third year we met Fresno for the Valley honors. Fresno started with a rush and finished with the same spirit. We were in very poor form and missed many easy shots, so were defeated, 40-20. This put us out of the race for the state championship. Second Team Games Our dear little "Midgets," went through the season without a defeat, and now weep because they can find no more worlds to conquer. We only wish it were possible for them to have entered for the coast championpionship in their weight. It's not necessary to describe their games as the scores show the result: 1.

As we have no diamond of our own. Mr. Dockham kindly consented to our using the town diamond. We have a good -team this year and hope to win the first honors of this division at least. Mar. 29. Modesto vs. Turlock. We entered this game with hardly any practice. Error after error was made, and hits were free. Modesto scored four runs in the early part, but we came back in the sixth, and seventh innings for a total of nine runs. Modesto made a spurt and tied the score in the last two innings. At our last half, we hit twice and won the game. The score was 10-9 in our favor. April 5. Turlock vs. Oakdale. In the Hrst inning we scored once. In the third, Oakdale scored three times, and thought the game was won. But we came back and hit the ball all over the lot, winning by 11-3. April 10. Turlock vs. Ceres. This was the best game of the season. It was fast and close and had we made fewer errors or hit the ball at times, we would have won. The score was 2-3 in the favor of Ceres. Three other games were played. Turlock met Oakdale on their diamond, the result being another overwhelming score in favor of us. A second game with Ceres resulted in our second defeat at their hands. We are forced to give Ceres credit for having a strong base-ball aggregation, just strong enough to be the only school which could defeat us in the league. Modesto received a second beating at our hands a week later. Although the score was very much one-sided, the game was a good one. This ended our base-hall season, we ranking second to Ceres, t Q EDGAR KINGERY. Eighty-three Girls' Athletics Of late years, there has come a very evident change which the present war does not account for. That change has taken place in girls' athletics, and is attributed to the boys. They, it seems, are beginning to fill too much space. Not that they're getting fatter! Dear, no! The high-priced potatoes, onions, and shoes forbid that-Goodrich? Well, he's been raising potatoes, you see. As I said, the boys are beginning to cover too much terri- tory, While the girls, naturally, are compelled to withdraw. Games have been played at Turlock High practically every week. That is, boys' games. The Midgets and the First Team have been so popular that they have always arranged for two games a night, excluding the Girls' Team. They think that the spectators are not equal to two games plus the great excitement of a girls' game. Therefore, we have been obliged to stand in the back-ground. ' However, Girls' Basket Ball has not entirely died out, as was evident in the few good games we had. Blood-curdling battles were fought with Oakdale and Lodi at Turlock, on December fifteenth and twenty-second, respectively. In both contests, our "Blue and Gold" team left the field with flying coolrs. Fortune was more unfavorable after those victories, for when we assumed the offensive against Oakdale and Lodi, we left both scenes, de- feated. Several practice games were played between picked teams in our gymnasium, which were of interest and physical benefit to us, if not to the spectators. We are all proud of our golden "T's", and hope next year to Jvin more honors for dear old Turlock High. The Wearers of the "Fla" are: Bertha Cunningham ...... ...........,.......

Heretofore we have been only in the district 1 league, but early this year the stu- dent body voted to enter the state league. Two teams, of two debat- ers each, are kept in the field all the time. Two debates on the same question are held on the same night. The team staying at home takes the affirmative, and the one which goes to another school upholds the nega- tive side of the assigned question. No student can debate more than three times during the year, and every school debates at least twicej. Early in the fall those interest- ed in debating met and organized The Debating Club, choosing Har-- old McMurry as president. l A Several subjects were sub- l mitted for the try-outs, and the club chose the question, "Resolv- ed, "That Compulsory Arbitration , Should be Adopted in the United States for the Settlement of In- dustrial Disputes. " F ourteen ,W students prepared speeches and delivered them before the student body, the faculty acting as judges. As a whole, these were tl1e best try-outs Turlock has ever had. Every one did well, and there was considerable speculation as to who should be chosen. The faculty finally chose Sibyl An- derson, Alice Chappell, Carl Jolmson, and Harold McMurry to represent Turlock in the lirst league debates. U These came on December 1. The question was, "Resolved, That the United States should call in the Latin American Re- publics to Help us Enforce Monroe Doctrine." Sibyl Anderson and Alice Chappell stayed at home, taking the atlirmative of the question against the Oakdale High debaters. The debate was close and hard fought, but Turlock, having a better rebuttal than Oakdale succeeded in capturing the decision by a two to one vote. Eighty-seven On the same night Carl Johnson and Harold McMurry upheld the negative side of the question at Patterson against Patterson High School. Turlock won an easy victory and brought home an unani- mous decision. Carl Johnson being very busy, asked that another might take his place on the team. Paul Nystrom was then chosen to succeed Carl. The next series of debates came on January 12. The subject was "Resolved, That the President of the United States Should be Elected for a Term of Six Years and Should be ineligible for Re- electionf' Sibyl Anderson and Alice Chappell again stayed at home, upholding the affirmative against Hughson High School. Our girls put up a good fight, but the decision was unanimous in favor of Hughson. Harold McMurry and Paul Nystrom defended the negative side of the question. They debated with the Ceres High School team at Ceres. They, too, had the misfortune of losing the debate. For some unaccountable reason, Ceres won the decision by a two to one vote. The loss of these two debates elimi- nated us from the state league contests for this year. Our next debate was with Ceres to decide permanent posses sion of the silver cup given by Mr. C. V. Lundahl, a prominent. public-spirited citizen of Turlock. In this debate, we were repre- sented by Alice Chappell and Harold McMurry. The debate was held at Ceres March 9. The question was, "Resolved, That the Japanese Should be Admitted to the United States Upon the Same Terms as Nationals of Europe." We had the negative side. This was the hardest fought battle of the year, but we won the de- cision two to one, and brought home the cup in triumph. The last inter-school debate was with Modesto High School. April 27. The two schools had decided to have a practice debate choosing a junior and a freshman to represent each school. Tur lock chose Paul Nvstrom, junior, and Clyde Chappell, freshmen. The subjest for debate was. i'Resolved, That Congress Should Enact a Law Providing for Compulsory Arbitration of Industrial Disputes." Our team did excellent work and walked away with an unanimous decision. During the year the junior class has shown a great deal of interest in debating, and took it as a regular part of the English work. Every member of the classes debated at some time. One class then chose its three best debaters and challenged the other class to a debate. This was given before the debating society with members of the faculty acting as judges. The subject was. "Resolved, That the United States Should Admit the Japanese Upon the Same Terms as the Nations of Europe." Sibyl Ander- Eighty-eight 'DNILVSEICI swv3-L Y If 41 son, Ruth McN inch, and Amy Curtioe upheld the affirmative against Helen Goodrich, William Fariss, and Arthur' Newman. Excellent Work was done by both sides. The affirmative won by a two to one vote. The under classmen have shown a great interest in debating, and, as three members of our team will be graduated this year, we must look to the younger students to uphold the honor of Turlock lligh School in future debating contests. We mean to remain members of the state league and hope to get into the inter-district ALICE B. CHAPPELL '17. Ninety-one iw . Jilairi. A It A gi' im A V X 1. X55 ' S' .

This money was gratefully accepted by the Student Body Association, and went toward publishing our high school annual. The Seniors had heaps of fun practicing under the direction of M. K. Martin, who has been one of the sponsors for the Class of '17 during its last two years in High. It was due very largely to his dramatic skill and untiring efforts that the program was such a success. The Class of '17 here take the opportunity of publicly thanking Mr. M. K. Martin for his kindly aid. The second thing accomplished this year in Dramatics was the presentation of the annual High School Play May 17, 1917. The play was "Mr, Bob," a comedy in two acts. A very short sketch is as follows: Miss Becky, is so fond of cats that she has them "on the brain," and summons her architect with plans for converting the upper part of the house into a home for her pets. Mr. Brown "comes down" with the codicil of her mother's will. Amusing incidents develop through mistaken iden- tities. The comedy is further enlivened by Patty, the maid, and Jenkins, the butler, whose H 'eart beats beneath 'is breast for 'er." The most exciting feature of the play is the boat race in which Phillip has agreed not to sail. Mr. Bob, the "weak speci- men of a man" wins the race and receives her reward which is Phillip's yacht and all that goes with it, Philip having sworn never to part with his yatch. All agree that the day will be long re- membered as the one in which "Mr, Bob won the race and Mr. Brown came down." 7 UA ST OF CHA RACTERS. Miss Rebecca Luke ........................................

About one hundred twenty-Eve dollars was cleared, one-half of which was given to the Red Cross and the other half to the Local Relief Association. The success of the play was largely due to the excellent assist- ance of Mrs. Hester who has been chosen for the last three years to coach the high school plays. Mrs. Hester has donated her time and labor without recompense and the Student Body hereby ex- press their gratitude to her. VALERIE SvvNsoN, 17.

As may with sweetness, through mine ear Dissolve me int exta ie o s s, And bring all Heav'n before mine eyes." -Milton, VVhat Would this world be like if there were no music? Noth ing to cheer us when We feel discouraged-nothing to express our joy When We are happy? Certainly a dreary and monotonous place to live in! We feel proud to say that we have five musical organizations in our High School-the Boys' Glee, the,Girls' Glee, the Mixed Double Quartet, the Mixed Chorus, and the Orchestra. Last year the Double Quartet Was composed of girls only, but this year four boys have taken the place of four of the girls. Instead of our annual Musicale, We gave the operetta Merry Milkmaids, Written by Charles Gabriel. The different musical clubs Worked on it long and faithfully, and were able to render it at the Turlock Theater, on Friday night, March 30. There was a full house, and it proved a decided success. About one hundred ninety dollars was realized. One hundred dollars of this money was used to help defray the expenses of our annual, the Alert, and the rest Was used to purchase new records for the Victrola, which is a new addition to the music department. We not only owe this to the untiring efforts of Miss Barnard, whom we are fortunate in having With us this year as our instructor in music, but We feel that she has Worked up the various musical organizations to a high degree of excellency. We have had a pleasant custom in our high school of having some special music or singing every Friday morning, when We all assemble in the auditorium. This year the custom has been con- Ninety-nine tinued. We have enjoyed these little treats, and they have proved valuable both to the entertainers and to the entertained. Our music department is now six years old. It has been im- proved every year, and we feel that this year's Work has brought it to such a high place that we have every reason to feel very proud. - MARIE BERGSTROM 'l7.

Treasurer To further the interests of the club, an invitation to join the club was extended to all students interested in agriculture. At this time all members of the first year agricultural class became members. Throughout the year several meetings were called to discuss topics of interest and plans for trips during the vacations. Our iirst trip, the annual Thanksgiving picnic, was well planned, but the inclement weather made it impossible for us to go. This was a great disappointment to the boys. The club has adopted plans for carrying on a hog feeding con- test, in which many of the members are taking part. However, this is not limited to the members of the club, for anv other boys between the ages of ten and eighteen may also take part, if they desire to do so. This contest will run for six months. At the end of the time the hogs will be put on exhibition at a local fair. In this contest each contestant will strive, in the given time, to put the greatest number of pounds on his hog at the least cost. Fifty dollars will be given away in prizes to the three most successful feeders. Our club is steadily growing and next year we expect a still larger number of members, which will stimulate more interest and enable us to do more along agricultural lines. FRED JOHNSTON '18.

KQTQ... .,' V A gg Q' . We have greatly enjoyed reading the Exchanges this year. They have brought us into touch with other schools, and given us suggestions whereby we may improve our own annual. We are glad to learn what other schools are doing. Most of the annuals were better than usual. If one department of a publication seemed a little weak, that was more than offset by some especially good feature of another department. We hope that our comments will be taken in a friendly spirit, for you can be assured that they are prompted by only one motive, the desire to be helpful to you and to ourselves. " Sycamore, " Modesto: It has been a pleasure to read the Sycamore. We oifer no criticisms save that a few poems would add to the interest of the publication. ' ' Yuba Delta, ' ' Marysville: You have a clever class history. Where are your artists and camera men? You can be proud of your Cadets. "Aurora," Anderson: You have an interesting paper, neat and nicely arranged. Come again. "Cereal," Ceres: Your literary dpeartment is above par. Your poets seem to be extremely industrious. "Copa De Oro," Fillmore: Why not give names to your seniors? Your cuts and snap- shots add greatly to the attractiveness of your annual. We are glad to note that you have no advertisements. -' ' Chanticleer, " Dixon : You have a goodly number of stories, but your literary depart- ment over-balances the rest of your book. A few snapshots would improve your annual. H Trident, " Santa Cruz: You have a well balanced annual. Your class history and prophecy are clever. Your cover design is neat and attractive. " Searchlight, " San Rafael: Have your seniors no past or future? Your departments One Hundred Ten could be improved, but the joshes "neutralize" this. Why put advertisements on the cover? ' ' Manzanita, ' ' Le Grand : Your work is good. A few more cuts would improve the ap- pearance of your book and add to its interest. "Orange and Black," Coalingoz ' "Tam O'Shanter Up to Date" is clever. A few more poems and snapshots would improve your annual. We would suggest that a better grade of paper be used. ' ' El Susurro, " Monterey: A very good paper. Your literary department is excellent. Apparently you have a great deal of school spirit. " Las Me1norias," Denair: A very good paper for your first attempt. Keep up the good work. "Tokay," Lodi: You have a superfine annual, one of the best of our exchanges.

A crash, a rattle A roar as of battle, Well, you may stop and wonder. A twist, a wiggle An echoing giggle, Are there voices excitingly calling? A shriek, a shout An awful bout, lt sounds as if timbers were falling. A leap, a thump A bone-breaking jump, Now disaster must surely befall. A hush, some chatter,- Well, whta is the matter? .Xssembly's out-+that's all. U. Goodrich: If I stand on my head, the blood all rushes to my bead, doesn't it? N 0 one ventured to contradict him.

A Mr. Newton invented gravity with the aid of an apple. There was no such a man as Hamlet. He lived in Denmark. A curve is a straight line that has been bent. The climate is caused by hot and cold weather. The Pagans were a contented race until the Christians came among them. A moat was something like a wart which grew on barons. A boy, who is amphibious, can use all of his hands. The days are shorter in winter because the cold contracts. Gold was discovered in California before anyone knew it was there. - Mars is the name of a star so far off it would take a million years to walk there in an express train. A goblin is a turkey.
