The Future Principal of Turlock High School

The History of Turlock Union High School
Back in the days before many of us were born, a small group of students,
about twenty in number, assembled in an old building called the Opera
House. This old building was located on the corner of Broadway and Olive
streets in the city of Turlock. lt would have been almost a crime against
organized society to call that shack a school, and yet that is what those
twenty young people were glad to call it. It was not the latest thing in the
way of architectural beauty but it represented to them an organ by which they
could acquire a higher education. A higher education was a very rare thing
in those days, and it is with little wonder that they were willing to call that
old auditorium a high school. Not only that, but it seems that the town of
Turlock was just as backward then in giving the younger generation a decent
high school. as they have been in the last few years.
The first principal of the Turlock high school was a Miss Clark, who held
her position from the time the Turlock high school was established in 1906
until 1911. Miss Clark had only one assistant that first year, a man by the
name of S. R. Douglas.
In the year 1907, the new school building was completed, a beautiful
building but considered much too far out of town. It was located in that rural
district which is now the corner of High and Locust streets. No new en-
rollments were made this year, but the faculty was increased from two to
four, thereby giving the students a more diversified course.
The school year of 1907-1908 rolled by and the fruits of Turlock's labors
began to come forth when Chesley Osborn graduated, the first student to
graduate from the Turlock high school. lt seems to be quite an honor to be
the first one to graduate from this high school and Mr. Osborn can justly feel
There was nothing new in the high school from the years 1909 until 1911.
except that the old annex which still clings to the grounds of the high school
was built. and the cry went from the students for a new gymnasium. The en-
rollment had also increased to ninety-one students. There were now six
members in the faculty, offering still more courses to the students.
T. J. Penfield replaced Miss Clark as principal in 1911. The Dramatic
Club and the Band were organized. The fight for the new gymnasium was
The new gymnasium was completed and ready for use at the beginning
of the term of 1912-1913. The old study hall was built and the agricultural
and manual training quarters also created. And last. but not least, the good
folk of the benevolent city of Turlock had given the high school a new and
complete set of encyclopedias. In general this proved a very successful year.
Mr. Penheld was replaced by VV. E. Hester as principal in 1914. Every-
thing went fine until the students began to feel that they needed more elbow
room and forthwith proceeded to let the peace-loving community know of it.
The faculty had now increased to ten. ln 1916 LeRoy Nichols. our next
year's principal, came to the school and taught History and Biology.
Time sped by until 1917, when the faculty had increased to fifteen and
the need for more room became a problem to be faced with action.
ln 1921, three bond elections were held, averaging Sl20,000. At each
election the bonds were emphatically voted down. At these trying periods,
the students worked long and faithfully helping the campaigners. In 1922
a larger bond election was held. This, too, ended in defeat. The towns-
people could not see see lit to appropriate a few thousand dollars for
a new school.
The High School Board after seeing that it was useless to try to get an
appropriation of any large amount from the people by a bond election, de-
cided to build the high school directly by taxation. They formulated plans
and finally decided to move the whole school over to the new site. planning
ln save money on thc upkeep of the school. The school was moved in the
summer of l922. Even in face of the fact that the buildings were nothing
more than shacks, the comfort and equipment was so much better 1 :N 1 IJ:

There are now about thirty teachers in the faculty and nearly six hun-
dred students enrolled. But that is not all. VVe have two new buildings, the
prospect of a new and wonderful auditorium, and some beautiful gardens.
Our laboratories are not to be excelled anywhere in the state. And we have
teams in athletics that have upheld the prestige of our school in evervlhing.
Sadly we are going to have one leave us who has ever been faithful,
expedient and loyal in carrying oul his duties to our beloved scho nl, and who
has been the foremost ligure in this community for the past few years in
the light for the new high school. Those that really know him, know that

the face of fire and criticisms from warring factions in this city he has come
through with a clean record of never favoring either faction, except that he
has followed the straight and narrow path and has brought our high school
through the smoke and mist to the dawning of better days. This was all dont-
through self-sacrifice and loyalty. Mr. Ratzell may be compared to the old
law-giver, Moses, who guided his children through the forty years in the
wilderness but was not allowed to enter the promised land. It is not without
a tear that we witness the passing of our leader. However, we are com-
forted in knowing that we have a good man to fill his place. LeRoy Nichols,

now. XYl'lEI1 we look back upon 'hese two men we may have the conception
of one leading his children through the dark days and the other taking control
and leading through days of peace. prosperity and expansion.
Turlock high school has inestimable possibilities and iudging by the
progressiveness of the past, the fn'ure will be wonderful. i

The l-lfoclge-Podge Empire was resuming the litful throes of discontent
which had been prevalent there since 1940 when the territory once known
as California seceded from the United States. In the late 3O,s a politician
of drastic tendencies, Lamar jackson, had persuaded the peaceful people of
California, by suave misrepresentation of the existing conditions through-
out the country, that great opportunities confronted California as a sov-
ereign state. 1
A stringent civil war of twenty years endured thereafter, and great
agony was felt in all the countries of the world due to the resulting lack
of trade with the budding nationality.
The rebellion of California was Successful and this great success was
credited to General Oliver Nelson, who repeatedly led his forces directly
into the fire of the enemy only to finish victoriously.
ln the decisive battle of the war fought near Reno one late afternoon
in '61 General Nelson was struck from his war plane by a bolt of lightning
sent by Commander Sidney Olson who was directing the opposing forces
from a position on the bank of a consolidated cloud. Lieutenant-General
john Fredericks, upon witnessing the death of the valiant Nelson immedi-
ately assumed leadership of the rebelling' forces and directed at General
Olsonis cloud a great quantity of cloud-condenser discovered and perfected
by Einstein's successor, Mr. Harold Elsen, As a result the cloud immedi-
ately condensed and Commander Olson with his staff of officers among
which the most prominent were Karl Claes, john Peterson, George Niday
and Hubert Thompson, began a seventeen thousand mile drop toward the
earth. But unfortunately, as luck would have it, a terrific wind storm was
encountered at the ten thousand mile elevation which completely altered
the course of the falling party so that it passed the earth in its descent. ln
later years the nearer planets in the vicinity of the earth were searched but
nothing was ever heard of the party.
Following the disappearance of the enemy's commanders the war ended
and jackson proclaimed himself dictator of the newly established country.
Through the secret service of the Coolds Betterment Society, headed by
Addie Barricklow, universally known as the Cops' delight, Francis Tyck,
an eminent matinee idol was captured and found guilty of high treason to
the new country during the war. He was sentenced to death and was
executed by the chief high executioner, Carmen Olson. Miss Olson was
I Page 26 1
inaugurated to this office because of her peculiar power to produce within
the victims heart, by gazing into his eyes luringly. a mysterious liquid.
The properties of this liquid inevitably caused death and in some cases the
process was so violent and the shock So great that the heart would burst.
in the case oi the execution, that of Thomas fVlYil'lCIl, the he-art upon inspec-
tion was found lodged securely in the throat of the deceased. O'Brien had
been sentenced because of his irresponsibility in executing his duties as
submarine traffic and speed regulator in the Pacific. His olliice was refilled
by the appointment of Morris Yule.
Hut now, once more vague rumors of trouble and dissatisfaction with
the government were drifting through the Empire which by this time in-
cluded the Hawaiian Islands and the Philippines. The tiny isle of Yap had
strongly resisted incorporation into the Empire. A large native band of
war-like Amazons, led by their savage queen, Sylvia Brier, had squelched
every attempted conquest.
As the story runs, Emperor jackson was becoming a very dogmatic
ruler. Doris johnson, one of the prominent ladies of the Court, success-
fully played upon his atlections and demanded that he eke from the overly
taxed subjects additional bullion to supply her with costly jewels.
l'ondering over this condition of ailairs and the deplorable effects upon
the people of the Empire. 'llheodore l-lohenthal, with his small band of
conspirators, sat in the wretched cubby-hole at the rear of Benard's pool hall.
"The time has at last come," hoarsely whispered llohenthal, as he
arose to address the small band. "XYe are prepared to strike and rid our
blessed land of the unwarranted curse of taxation. XVe then can afford
"lYell saidf quoth the sincere lYilliam Barmore, one of the foremost
conspirators. "But we must beware the frightful Cooks' Secret Service.
'llhe mighty and formidable Barricklow has under her command a clever
agent in Edna Oliver. XX'e must beware, friends, beware."
Evelyn Larson tinished an inaudible conversation with her friend and
colleague, Alice .Xhlbergg and arose.
"Friends and fellow-liberatorsf' she began with great feeling. "Let us
disband to our posts and carry out the plans which we have formulated."
"Aye," chanted the group, and one by one they passed through the
small back door into the alley and the still, black night----A.
'llhere was great merry-making and feasting in the palace of the
Emperor. Outside the gates the hungry populace viewed the festivities
lX"ith a hungry snarl a wretched old woman dressed in rags. Olga Swanson,
pounced upon a small mouse which had strayed too far from its lair and
devoured it with rapidity before those standing near could seize it from
her. .N great commotion was heard on the outskirts of the crowd and a
large group headed by the Heet-looted Astrid Delbon dashed in pursuit of
a scrawny kitten. Everett Rowley foully tripped her and captured the prey
himself. It was then that the real chase began.
I Page 27 QI
The dancing, reveling crowd gave no heed but continued its sporting
behind the barred gates of the palace. Lo! The rich tapestries concealing
the great magnihcent entertainment platform were drawn from their hang-
ings and thrown wantonly into the blaze within the collossal fireplace. The
crowd without the gates growled omniously at this wasteful destruction of
their stolen wealth.
Galloping out upon the entertainment platform mounted upon a swift
alligator came the Court Fool, Arthur Thompson, clad in outlandish cow-
boy costume. The appearance of the superb Figure of the clown caused
liendish glee among the ladies of the Court, and Lady Hazelle Arnold suc-
combed to hysteria. Peggy Clark, her maid, summoned the aid of the Court
Surgeon, liarthol Pearce, who found necessary an operation of the Simplex
Sine-Cura. Later the case was discovered to be super-compi:und artio-
tom si irinm.
The blare from the trumpets of the two smartly dressed l-leralds, Kellis
Grigsby and Eussebio Ballogdajon proclaimed the beginning' of the next
number of the entertainment. Elvah Helfrich, Dorothy Brown. Clesta Con-
ner, and Evangeline Carlson, appeared clad in iron tights and rendered
Chinese ballads in accompaniment to their inspiring dances. Bernice Rus-
sell supplemented this troop with a toe dance on snow shoes.
Sheldon Decker, commissioner of the foot and mouth disease, applaud-
ed these demonstrations so vigorously that he sustained a broken wrist.
This greatly amused the grave dignified judge and Counselor to the
Emperor, il. Franklin Carlson to such an extent that he was only able to
control his emotions by the consumption of large quantities of Oakdale
grape juice served throughout the Court by the official bootlegger, the
opulent NN-'ayne johnson. The virtual slave and devoted wife of the boot-
legger, the once beautiful maiden known universally as Beatrice Fiorini, was
aghast at the sight of her husband swilling the palace floors with the price-
less nectar. The Court hounds greatly delighted in this, and created quite a
spectacle in their resulting inebriated condition.
At this moment a stone was hurled from the crowd watching from
without. The stone glanced lightly from the Emperor's broad shoulder and
smote llflinnie Halvorsen, a lady in attendance, full on the back ol the neck.
Angelina Dias, under the supervision of the mighty conspirator f'lohenthal,
endeavored by telepathy to calm the Monarch, as this action on thc part of
the crowd was premature and threatened to precipitate the campaign of the
conspirators before the opportune hour.
But the enraged ruler would listen to none and ordered his Sergeant
of the guards, Glenn Leedom, to disperse the crowd. This instilled great
fear in the hearts of the kitchen maids, Vlfinona johnson, Oma Lawson and
Alice Moberg for the safety of the young guardsmen. ,The chambermaids,
Ruby Morrisson and Bernice Martin, had of late been slighted by the gal-
lant Sergeant, and upon hearing the Emperor's command went straightway
to the den of the Devil Vlforshiper, Paul Thomas, and enlisted his aid in an
attempt to bring ill luck to the brave guardsman. Betty Olivas later heard
I Page 281
of this and reported to the Emperor who immediately ordered that the
unfortunate maids' heads be clipped off as pa1't of the entertainment for the
Following this diversion was announced the entrance of the Court's
elaborately dressed choir of female voices composed of Ethel Gilliland, a
sorrowful maiden moping because of her inability to vamp the Emperor,
Fern Norvel, an ex-fat lady of Barnum and Bailey's, Ione Rapp and Vivienne
Service, a prize vaudeville team, and a piquant little country lass, Dorothy
Salmon, who had been heard singing love songs to a peasant yokel, Elbert
Smith, and immediately confiscated for the choir and held there, thereafter,
even against her will. This splendid choir, led by Bernice Sheld, in diverse
keys voiced to the Court and all who could hear its obvious lack of a certain
The choir soon wore itself out and the feasting was resumed with
intensified spirit. An old toothless bard with the name, Steele, inlaid on a
battered seven string lyre, presented himself from an obscured corner and
began singing in a plaintive monotone weird tales of an ancient domination
of the land by Spain. Slowly the bard edged closer and closer to the un-
suspecting Emperor, and suddenly with a hateful scream he threw himself
upon the Monarch and embedded a long slim steel blade in his back.
The die was cast! All was immediately a howling tumult. The guards
pumped lead into the writhing body of the old bard. Cannons at this
moment sounded without the palace and high explosive and gaseous shells
broke into the rooms!
The revolt was started! The work of the conspirators begun!!
The United States National Museum had made a striking discovery.
A committee was established to excavate in California among some odd
ruins which were found buried in the vicinity of what was known in ancient
days as Delhi. Entrenched on the bank of what appeared to be a canal,
thirty feet below the surface which at one time was probably used for irri-
gational puruposes, were found the stolid foundations of an ancient palace.
The Committee came upon a bronze plpate which seemed at one time to have
marked the tomb of some great and renowned ancient. On it were engraved
in odd unfamiliar letters, "Ruth Bergundahl awarded by His Majesty the
Emperor Robert Lamar I the lirst degree in Literature, l973.',
The plate was polished and placed in a glass case in the Museum where
the people of the fortieth century passed and repassed it, deciphering its
uncanny inscription with awe.

The Associated Student Body
The Associated Student Body of the Turlock Union High School was
organized at the same time the school was organized, In September, 1906.
A constitution-was adopted and the officers elected for the ensuing year.
It was impossible then to have any athletics, and as athletics was the only
means by which the Student Body could make money, it was naturally not
very sound financially,
As we look back and see the first organization, we can see how imperfect
it was compared to the organization we now have. But in spite of this fact,
and others, it was a great success from the standpoint of getting things
started. This was not all, for in 1909, as we have now, they had a system
of student control. As far as we know this was the first system of student
control in any school in the San Joaquin valley. This shows the foundation
upon which the spirit of our students has been built-progressiveness.
Many were skeptical as to its chances of success, it was faced by rabble of
unruly Freshmen and other students. But it worked. It worked then as it
is working now, maybe not so well, but it worked. life are sad, however,
to say that after a time it declined and failed. It did not fail because the
principle was wrong but because it was an impractical system. It lasted
only as long as those that organized it and understood it were in school. As
soon as they left, the system went into decay and no more was heard of it
until the school year of 1922 and 1923 when it was again tried and failed.
lt failed this time because the system was secret.
Something must be said about this first student control, It was not a
regular court but what was called an executive committee, elected every
month from the different classes. lt is easy to see how such a system might
be impractical when we compare it to the system we have now. Then, one
executive committe might hand down some radical or bad decisions. Upon
whom, then, would rest the responsibility, when at least eight different com-
mittees met during the year As far as we know now, no record was kept
of cases or decisions, thereby no precedents were established for the com-
mittees, following, to work on. Also the members were elected: and popu-
lar elections usually place people in such types of offices who are not likely
to fulhll their duties as they should fulfill them.
Now, we have a system by which five justicces are appointed by the
executive committee. These judges are subject to impeachment. They
must keep a careful and permanent record of their decisions and thereby
establish precedents. The judges of this court are honorable, upright, judi-
cial, and wise because they are appointed, not elected, regardless of party.
class or popularity. One can readily see why such a system works, why it
has worked, and why it will continue to carry on in its splendid work in the
The constitution of the Student Body was reorganized in 1018-10. It
was much better than the old system. there being hardly a fair comparison.
But it was not yet the perfect organ that it is now.
I Page 31 J
At the end of the year 1922-1923 Lamar jackson, president-elect of the
Student Body, realized that the Student Body as it Was, was not the perfect
organ it should be, and from that time on devoted time and energy to the
making of a more perfect organ. The original idea of some of the main
factors in .the new constitution may be rightfully accredited to Richard
Steele. 'Richard Steele, Theodore Hohenthal and Lamar jackson prepared
the first amendment to the old constitution. The lirst time the amendment
was brought up it was voted clown by the students. A great amount of
criticism was thrown at the bill-some of it was just, and some of it was
unjust. The most of the criticism was concerning technicalities and points
which had been left out. This was a very difficult proposition to handle
because in making this amendment it so changed the government that prac-
tically a new constitution was necessary. This amendment is truly the
backbone of the new constitution. It provides for the creation of five de-
partments with managers, and representatives to the executive committee.
lt provides for an executive committee and its powers and duties. It creates
a judicial committee. And it has in it a system of student control which
is unique, and yet the most simple and practical plan that has ever been
employed before in this school. Every member of the school is on his honor
to report any misconduct: and it has worked wonderfully well and un-
doubtedly will continue to do so in the future. The new constitution also
has a new hnnncial system by which it will pay no demand that has not
been provided for by a requisition. The Principal may give out requisitions
up to the amount of ten dollars, but everything above this amount must be
appropriated by the Student Body.
At the first meeting in which the new amendment was brought up,
excitement ran high. Such orators and speakers as J. Franklin Carlson,
I Page 321
Ilarold lflsen. 'l'l1eodore l-lohenthal, and Richard Steele were ranged on the
side of the amendment. Arrayed against the bill were such men as Elbert
Smith, E. Wfayne johnson, Leroy Holbrook and the whole Freshmen and
The heat of the debate was on. Angry cries rang out. Logic and other-
wise filled the air. l,'resident jackson paced the Hoor like a caged tiger, his
face iiushed with excitement and anger. The bill was voted down by a
large majority. The President then asked for a committee to help him
work it over and the committee was granted to him. The next time this
amendment was brought up not a murmur was heard because it was so
perfect that a halo encircled it and dazzled all those who beheld it. It car-
ln speaking again of the court we must mention its honorable
judges who have, on every occasion, upheld the honor and dignity of the
court with all due grace. 'llhey are J. Franklin Carlson, Chief justice.
Theodore Hohenthal, Kenneth Daniels, Clifford 'VVolfe, and Ralph Carlson,
There is only one thing left to do and that is to hope and pray, and put
our coniidence with our next year's president, that he will continue to lead
our high school as well as those who have preceded him and that by all
means he will be a faithful adherent and student of our nigh perfect consti-

The Associated Student Body has enjoyed a very successful year finan-
cially. Our chief source of income was from Student Body tickets which
sold for S2 each and admitted the holder to all league games, debates and
Student Body privileges. Next in order came the football receipts-from
the Modesto-Turlock "big', game we realized 346525. Athletic tickets
which sold for 353.50 and admitted to all games and debates held on the High
School Campus were bought by townspeople as well as students. Basket-

Our expenses or disbursements were large-but a large part of the
money was used to erect a fence about the football field. bleachers, and other

The Dramatic Club of this year, under the direction of Miss Lura
Critser, has made exceptional progress. It is composed of all the members
of the drama classes, taught by Miss Critser, and any Junior or Senior who
wished to join. This club constitutes the main part of the Drama Depart-
The Club was re-organized at the beginning of this year, with Evange-
line Carlson as presidentg Barthol Pearce as vice-presidentg Ethel Brock.
secrctaryg Elvah I-Ielfrich, treasurer, and Astrid Delbon, executive repre-
The Dramatic Club is three years old and is probably just a beginning
of what is yet to come in the way of play-giving. Some of us were rather
dismayed when we lost Miss Spencer last year as dramatic director, but her
place has been ably Filled by Miss Critser. She has been just as ambitious
for the club as any of the students, and with her rests a great deal of credit
both for the plays given by the Dramatic Club and the success of the ,lunior
and Senior plays which she coached.
In choosing the plays she considers not only the quality of the play but
also the talent and the quality of the people she must of necessity use in the
play. In this way all the plays given have proved to be great successes.
Never was a person given a part above his reach.
Last year.the Dramatic Club gave ten plays, which includes the two
class plays, while this year, ten plays were given by the Dramatic Club alone.
Besides the plays the Dramatic Club furnished entertainment between
the scenes of the plays. One entertainment was especially good, a song and
dance, Rendez-vous, given by Erma and Ethel Brock. In their quaint shep-
herd and shepherdess costumes they gave a truly professional act. In fact.
in all details have the Dramatic Club proved themselves to be an aid to the
school and if they continue to be as helpful and progressive next year as
they have been this, the Club will soon become an inclispensible affair.
The one-act plays given were: "Dancing Dolls," "Neighbors," "Upon
the Wate1's," "VVhy the Chimes Rang," "The Innocent Villain," "Over-
tones," "The Florist Shop," "The Wfonder Hat." "Pantomine-Into the
Nowhere," and "Joint Owners in Spain."

'ffhe Charm School
On Friday, january 18, one of the best plays ever presented in the city of
Turlock was given by the Senior Class. "The Charm School," a four act
comedy was a finished production, which bespoke of the talent of the mem-
bers of the cast. and the ability of the director, Miss Critser,
The play dealt with Austin Bevans, cleverly taken by Francis Tyck, who
inherits a young ladies' school. The school is under a heavy mortgage held
by a sharp, old business man, Mr. johns, interpreted by Dick Steele. Mr.
johns is the divorced husband of Miss Hayes who has had charge of the
school since the death of Mr. Bevan's aunt. Evangeline Carlson, as Miss
Hayes was wonderful.
Austin upon hearing of his inheritance takes the school under control.
Instead of teaching girls Latin he has them taught charm and poise. He em-
ploys his four best friends as teachers. David McKensie. a lawyer, was

mirth throughout the performance. Elise Benedotti, the most popular girl in
school and the neice of Mr. johns, falls in love with Austin, thereby breaking
an agreement which Austin had with Mr. johns that none of the girls should
fall in love with him. Carmen Olson, as Elise. played like a professional.

breaks down and they are forced to continue in an old buggy.

'The New Co-edv
'l'he dramatic season was successfully completed this year by the
junior play, "The New Co-Ed." The heroine of this comedy was Letty
X'ViIlis, a part successfully taken by Marie Clayton, and the hero was Dick
Bradley, well taken by Loren Critser. The comedy leads were Madge
Stevens and Punch Doolittle, 'Iulia Gilliland and Bruce Schott, respectively.
Freda Stubbs, taking' the part of Estelle Doolittle, sister of Punch, the
villainess of the play. interpreted a diHicult role well. The part of George
lhfashington Vtfatts, negro butler, by Louis Sweet, anforded much amusement.
The play tells of the coming of Letty VVillis to college from her country
home. She immediately captivates the heart of Dick Bradley, who before
this had been "playing around" with the heart of Estelle Doolittle. Grace
lEvelyn Rosenl, May fGladys Swansonl and Rose fCatherine Lawson! are
three college girls. Estelle is very much humiliated at Dick's desertion of
her and his attention to Letty. She makes it a rather sorry time for poor
Letty. and their landlady, Miss Rice tGlaclys Thompsonj, is exceedingly
bewildered by her actions and the actions of the girls rooming with her.
Madge and Punch and Dick Bradley. stand by Letty. It was not until after
the theft of a ring, intended for a prize at a party that intense action was
begun. Estelle was the thief. She stole the ring and made it appear that
l,etty was the guilty person. Punch Doolittle, seeing the sorrow of Madge,
volunteers his services as a slcuth. His discovery was the finding of the
ring and emeralds in Estelle's rooms. LeRoy Holbrook was manager.

Owing to difficulties there was no debate club this year. Interest was
lacking. However, a meeting was held to elect a representative to the execu-
tive committee. in the person of XVayne Johnson. I-Ie has been very capable
in lilling the position. He is truly a speaker and debater. His untiring devo-
tion to the cause was appreciated by all whom he represented.
The debate teams did exceptionally well this year in spite of the fact that
only two of the eighteen who made up our teams had ever before debated.
These two experienced debaters, outside of the class took part in two debates.
Turlock was entered in two leagues, namely, "The Central California
Public Speaking League" and "The Stanislaus County Debating League."
The Central California Debating and Oratorical League conducts each
year, in addition to debates, an extemporaneous speaking contest and an
oratorical contest, Turlock was represented in the former by Ina Olson at
Modesto where the contest was held. Sylvia Brier represented us in the
League contest at Manteca, May 2.
The results of the debates in which Turlock students participated have
not been altogether favorable, nevertheless. they speak well of the talent in
the class. So far Turlock has taken part in eight debates, winning three of
them and losing live.
The first debate was on the question, "Resolved that the United States
should enter the VVorld Court as outlined in the I-Iarding-Hughes Plan."
Turlock's negative debaters, Richard Steele and Herbert Ferguson, journeyed
to San .lose and won 2 to l. The affirmative team composed of Ina Olson
and Kenneth Daniels debated Sonora at Turlock, winning by 2 to l.
The second debate dealt with the Philippine Islands. The question was,
"Resolved, that Congress should grant the Philippine Islands their Independ-
ence Immediatelyf' Donna Gillman and Clifford Wfolfe upheld the nega'ivc
at Oakdale but were defeated, the decision being in favor of Oakdale by a
unanimous vote. The aitirmative team, Louis Sweet and Wfayne johnson
was defeated by Modesto, 2 to 1.
The next debate was on a question which required much study and
preparation, the coal question: "Resolved, That Congress should create a
commission, with powers to enforce its decisions, to settle all questions relat-
ed to the coal industry." The negative team, Ina Olson and Iris Booth, went
to Newman only to be defeated by a 2 to I score. The aifirmative team com-
posed of Donna Gillman and Kenneth Daniels, debated against Ceres at Tur-
lock. This was a one sided debate and Turlock easily won 3 to 0.

The fourth debate of the year was on the question: "Resolved, That
Congress should grant adjusted compensation to World VVar Veterans."
Our negative team composed of Carmen Olson and Richard Steele debated at
Fresno and the vote was 3 to O in Fresno's favor. The affirmative team,
Donna Gillman and Wfayne johnson, debated with Manteca at Turlock and
met defeat, the vote being 2 to 1 in favor of Manteca.
Other debates are scheduled which will take place after A'The Alert" is
printed. One is on the Marshal plan of Irrigation and the other is on the
Rural Credits Act.
Turlock is this year entered in two new fields of public speaking. One is
the Sophomore division of the Central California Debating and Oratorical
League. It promotes debates in which only Sophomores are allowed to par-
ticipate. Turlock debated Stockton here and Manteca at' Manteca on May 23
this year. The other new undertaking is our entering the Chronicle Oratori-
cal Contest. The orations were on the Constitution of the United States.
The preliminaries were held at Oakdale. VVayne johnson, Tur1ock's repre-
sentative, took third place. The winners first go to San Francisco and the
winners there go to the National Contest at Washington, D. C. Those- who
entered the local contest were XVayne johnson, Lamar Jackson, Clifford
lVolfe and Kenneth Daniels.
A great deal of the credit may be given the debate coach and teacher,

Each passing year bears witness to the fact that the Music Department
of the Turlock Union High School is becoming stronger and better in every
way. Progress has been continual and we now feel that we have a Music
Department of which we can be justly proud. The departmentas now consti-
tuted has three main divisions, the orchestra, Boys' Glee Club and Girls' Clee
The orchestra was organized soon after the opening of the fall term of
school. A definite organization was effected and the following officers elected:
President, Carmen Olsong secretary, Dick Crane: librarian, Paulyne
Odnealg sergeant-at-arms, Thayer Jones.
.-Xt present the orchestra has the following instrumentation: tive first
violins, three second violins, Hute, clarinet, baritone, C melody saxaphone.
drums, and E-Hat saxophone.
The Boys' Glee Club has always been one of the most popular organiza-
tions of the school. This year it numbered twelve voices, two first tenors.
four second tenors, three first basses and three second basses. Officers of
the club are:
President, Dick Steele: secretary. Barthol Pearce: librarian, Franklin
The Club has been in great demand for community gatherings and has
ren several concerts at various churches of the city.
,AX Boys' Quartette composed of Karl Claes, First tenor: Franklin Carl-
son, second tenor: Barthol Pearce, first bass, and Richard Steele, second bass.
was another popular organization.
So well liked was the Girls' Glee Club that over eighty girls applied for
membership, but it was found necessary to limit the members to sixty. The
girls have appeared at several programs of the school and also furnished
music at the County Teachers' Institute at Modesto in the fall of the year
where they were warmly applauded. Their officers are:
President, Oma Lawsong vice-president. Clesta Conner: secretary, Beat-
rice Fiorini: librarians, Melba Coveney and Ethel Brock.
No account of the work of this department could be complete without
reference to Mrs. Frances Roach, its head for the past four years, to whose
untiring efforts the success that has been attained, in good measure, is due.

Q'The Wishing Well',
Following a custom established several years ago the Music Department
of Turlock Union High School presents each spring an operetta. These
events have been uniformly successful, but it is the concensus of opinion that
this year's presentation which took the form of a musical comedy far exceed-
ed all previous productions from an artistic standpoint.
The musical comedy given by the music department at the California
Theatre, March 14, was entitled "The Wfishing X'Vell." The scene of the ac-
tion was laid in Ireland in the latter eighteenth century at the country manor
of Lady Mary O'Donnel1. Lady Mary was in straightened Hnancial circum-
stances and was about to lose the manor through the deceit of Squire Baxby,
when Sir Terence Fitzpatrick O'Grady arrived on the scene, saved the manor
for Lady Mary, and incidentally won her hand.
Beautiful scenery for the play was arranged by members of the music
and manual arts departments. The old wishing' well and the rose garden of
the manor were 'faithfully reproduced on the stage.
Costumes of the period were worn by all members of the cast and chorus.
which added much to the artistic effect of the comedy.
Much credit for the successful staging and the interpretation of the
musical numbers is due Mrs. Frances Roach, head of the music department,
who acted as director. She was ably assisted by Miss Lura Critser. DI.
Franklin Carlson acted as business manager.
The 'following' cast together with a chorus of over thirty voices took part:
Lady Mary O'Donnell, Freda Stubbs: Sir Terence Fitzpatrick O'Grady, Bar-
thol Pearce: Noreen. Gertrude Smith: Squire Baxby, 'liheodore Hohenthol:
Felix Murphy, Hubert Thompson: Darby Duffy. Franklin Carlson: Nora.
Katherine Lawson: Dan Tyron, Richard Steele: Kathleen O'Mara, Ethel
Brock: Molly Owlloole, Florence Downing: Maureen McGibney, Mary Crane.

One of the most important phases of school lite, and also one of the most
important professions is journalism. For three years classes in journalism
have been taught, but no year has surpassed this year for enthusiasm. The
large class, under the supervision of Miss Critser, writes all of the articles for
the High School Tribune. Practical journalism is accomplished as well as
The large class of "cub" reporters began the year by familiarizing
themselves with "leads," 'follow-ups," "proof," and "copy." At the outset,
the Tribune was published and though the writers were at first inexperienc-
ed, the paper, nevertheless, was considered excellent and well written.
The next step in the art of journalism was the analysis of newspapers.
Careful observation found mistakes in the biggest and best papers of the
cities. Through analyzing the daily papers. students who never before
were interested in newspapers became daily readers. Little though the
reading may be and if only newspapers, the mind is broadened and the
reader acquires a wider scope of knowledge and understanding.
The next project in the journalistic department was the study of
newspaper officesg the life and education of reporters, and the daily curi-
culum of a printing shop. The class in a body met at the printing office ol
the Turlock 'llribune and were given a demonstration lecture on one of the
most complicated and expensive machines of the printing business, thc
Linotype machine. 'XYhere formerly all type was set up by hand, this
elaborate machine sets up all print mechanically.
The last project of the journalism class was the arrangement of the
"dummy" of each paper. To those unfamiliar with journalistic work a
Udummyl' is the 'form or outline made for each paper. The articles for every
paper must be laid out exactly as to column, placing, and length. The size
type and headlines are all written in on the sample f'dummy." From this
'dummy" the printer knows how the paper is to be made up. Every mem-
ber of the class had opportunity to arrange one "dummy" which was respon-
sible, as well as hard work.
Vifhen the amendment to the constitution was perfected and passed,
the journalism department was given a place or officially recognized in
the constitution. A department composed of -lournalism and the Alert was
Organized. At all times in the future the journalism department will be
backed by the student body, not only in spirit but linanciallv.

Alert Ecl1tor s Report
' ' The building of a high school annual is not an
easy task, and would be practically impossible with-
out co-operation and congeniality. The work of
manager or editor necessitates the mingling with
many types and varieties of people. Each person
must be pleased and humored, and above all the
annual must be made to please the large score of
Editing the Alert has been a pleasure this year
' because of the remarkable co-operation of the busi-
ness manager, Richard Steele. At every turn he
has helped and advised and labored to make the
Alert what it should be, an interesting annual.
XVithout his congenial help and initiative the Alert
would be uninteresting work, and uninteresting
reading. Too much credit cannot be given him.
Carmen Olson This year the Alert is changed in a few aspects.
'Ed-'lnrchlef ln making these changes we hope that the readers
will bear in mind that each publication is an experiment because the staff
is new each year without previous experience. One change that we hope
will not oifend anyone, is the shortened literary department. In shortening
this department, the Alert has more snapshots and more 'cutsf' ln future
years. glancing through the book one will remember pictures whereas a
number of stories will not bring back the same memories. The literary
department has one story, the winner of the five dollar prize in the story
contest. XVitl1 the reports and other writenps the literary department is
not too small.
The staff wishes to thank the Commercial Art Company for its help
and personal interest. XVe also wish to thank the Art department, the
typing department, and the teachers for their help and advice at all times.

THE ALERT STAFF
i lt is difficult to conceive of a high school with-
out some sort of publication representing its activi-
ties and aims, be this publication an annual, semi or
quarter annual, or even a weekly newspaper.
These are the result of the growing assertive res-
ponsibility and creative abilities of the students
and student body organizations.
The successful management of any school
publication is due to the facility of co-operation
among the individuals directly responsible for the
publication, and the assessibility of financial re-
Co-operation upon the part of the publishing
staff is absolutely essential. Wlithout it progress
is extremely slow and all the work falls upon two
or three individuals. Such a condition is not favor-
Dgck Sf,ee1e'BuS. Mgr, able to the publication of a good book. Carmen
Olson, as chief of the publishing staff of "The Alert" is unsurpassed. Under
her supervision all material was collected in good time and submitted to the
printer in a creditable manner. The importance of the position she has so
ably held can not be overestimated.
ln publishing "The Alertn the Art Department has played a large part.
Much credit is due Miss Mittel, the instructor of that department for the
interest she has taken in "The Alert" and her co-operation with the staff.
In the case of "The Alert" the student body has been at a disadvantage
in raising adequate funds in order to make "The Alert" self supporting.
The pursuance of a "non-advertisement" policy is evidence of this fact.
However, through subscriptions and charges made the different classes
including the Seniors for their representation, "The Alert" becomes less of
a losing' proposition to the student body.
The most difficult feature in the management is determining the exact
cost of "The Alert." This, in reality, is not known exactly until all bills
are paid. The cost of the cuts may be easily determined for scales are pro-
vided for that purpose, whereas in printing, the exact cost is not known
until all material is collected and arranged in its proper place in the plan.
At the time of this report it is estimated that the cost of "The Alert'
will not exceed 3900. Although this is nearly S150 less than the cost of
last year it has been assured that the quality and workmanship is not less.
Because of this extraordinary low cost the student body will not suffer any
In this issue of "The Alert" all photography was done by Thomas
Shoob of Turlock. The Commercial Art and Engraving Company supplied
the cuts and the printing was done by the Turlock Tribune.

HIGH SCHOOL TRIBUNE STAFF
Turlock High School Tribune
The High School Tribune had its first publication four years ago in the
form of "The Reiiectorf' This paper was published solely under the ans-
pices of the Sophomore Class. The editor, Muriel Hively, put out a good
ziaper, full of pep and enthusiasm. "The Retlectorh was a mimeograph
paper, and though it contained good material. was unsatisfactory because
of the printing.
The following year, under the editorship of Francis Howe, the paper
became a student body publication. The printing was done by the Turlock
Tribune, published as a supplement to the main paper. At this time the
tirst class in journalism was organized. This small class became experi-
enced in newspaper work and was prepared to publish a good paper the
Alfred Ahlstrom was'the successful editor of the 'llribune the third
year of its publication. The paper improved wonderfully from year to
year, but seemed to lack co-operation with the student body. The paper
was published faithfully in good form every week throughout the year,
and closed the third year of publication successfully.
This year's Tribune has been excellent in every respect. However, co-
operation has been very poor, and as a consequence the Tribune has not
been complete every issue. The Turlock Tribune, as a solely business pro-
position, refused to publish the high school paper unless a certain amount
of advertising was obtained. X'Vhen the manager failed to obtain the
advertisements, the paper was printed on just one page, and in poor form.
Throughout the year, material for the paper has been furnished by the
journalism class under the instruction of Miss Lura Critser. She has been
instrumental in creating enthusiasm, and in obtaining correct "copy."
Miss lone Rapp, as editor, could not be excelled. She has worked faith-
fully throughout the year. making up each paper in correct newspaper style.
bl. Franklin Carlson, as assistant during the first part of the year, put into
his work his sterling personality. Mary Crane succeeded him the latter part
of the year. The business manager this year was Ross Meade, assisted by
tl. Franklin Carlson. To Ross Meade fell the responsibility of obtaining the
life-saver of the high school paper-advertisements. Department editors
were Athletics. Thomas U'Brien and Muriel Mc!-Xtiliffeg Exchanges, Bernice
Sheldg Personals, Grace Cotobedg Society, Carmen Ulson.
The following are the members of the journalism class who have acted
as reporters throughout the year: Thomas lfifhistler, LeRoy Leedom, Roy

her, Ruth Stockman. Everett Rowley, Clifford McPherren, E. Francis Tyck,
NVesley .-Xdams, Hacelio Busano, Edith Turner and Thelma Post. These
people have been helpful and willing throughout the year. To them is a
great deal of credit due for the successful year.

Turlock entered the 1923 football season with but three of last year's
veterans in suits. Coach Lancaster sent out an urgent call for candidates.
lt was then not long before there were two very creditable teams in the field.
The outstanding star of the entire season was our battling tackle, Cap-
tain Nlohn Peterson. For sheer fight, "Pete" was an inspiration to the rest
of the team. The other tackle position was held down by Lawrence Mead.
who has been playing that position for four years.
X'Vatts and "Swede" Carlson were about a draw for center position.
Both were excellent on the defense. VVatts started the season but got his
hand tangled up with a buzz saw in the manual training department and
was forced to give up his place to "Swede" who held it very creditably.
The end positions were held down by Arollo and Holbrook, two men
who were kept out of suits the greater part of the last season due to injuries.
They came back stronger than ever this year, however.
Our two guards were Neil Pimlott and "Fat" Carlquist. Pimlott hasn't
much "beef" but he has everything else. "Fat" played on last year's second
team. At the beginning of the year he was promoted to the first, and next
year he will captain the squad.
Our backneld was composed entirely of new material. Quarter-back,
Loren Critser, who weighs less than 120 pounds, was a sensation in nearly
every game of the season.
Busano, our hard-hitting fullback, is one of the best line plungers Tur-
lock ever had. Busano had the honor of making the "All Central California
Second Teamn along' with Peterson and Meade.
jackson, at right-half, proved to be one of the surprises of the team.
His line bucking was nearly equal to Busano's, and as a punter, Jackson
out-distanced every team we met.
The left-half, Fred Stoy. came out 'for practice at the first of the year
knowing as much about football as the average American does about
Chinese, with the result that he developed into one of the hardest little
tacklers on the squad. besides a forward passer of no mean ability.
Wfe were also fortunate in having a hardy bunch of subs. "Fat" Knut-
sen on the line was a man to be reckoned with, and Steele in the backfield
showed speed and Hash that carried him through rnost opposing lines.
Beauchamp, at end. was a fast little player with a remarkable faculty for
getting the runner behind the line. Donnelly, at half, was another shifty
and fast little runner that 'showed up well in several games.
Our first game was played with Madera on our own field, and due to
fumbles caused chiefly by the nervousness of the backtield. we lost by a
The following' week we pulled one of the biggest surprises in the lus-
tory of football, when we met the famous Lodi Tokays. Lodi did finally
score but on the weakest kind of a fluke. This game proved to the fans
that Turlock High had a creditable team.
I Page 521
The next group of warriors to invade the melon city, were Charlie
Erb's charges from Woodland. They unloosed a maze of trick plays that
kept our inexperienced backfield in a daze, and when the smoke of battle
cleared the score stood 21-0 in favor of Woodlaiid.
The following Saturday we journeyed 180 miles to Grass Valley. They
got a penalty in the last three minutes of play
l that practically gave them a drop-kick and
i three points, Then, in a last attempt to
score, we tried a pass behind our own 20 yard
line, which was intercepted by a Grass Valley
back, who ran to a touchdown making the
final score l0-0.
Our next game was a practice contest
with Merced. The game ended with Turlock
on the big end of a 54-10 score.
Then came the outstanding athletic event
of Stanislaus County, the big Tur1ock-Mo-
desto football classic. Both schools had been
looking forward to this game since the begin-
ning of the school year, and over two thou-
sand people were on the bleachers when the
whistle blew for the kick-off. Several times
both teams were within scoring distance of
the enemy's goal line, but the defense would
always stiffen like a stone wall, and it began
i to look like a scoreless game. In the last two
H, minutes of play Stoy shot a perfect pass to
Critser who caught it, and ran 40 yards
through a clear field to a touchdown, bring-

ing to a thrilling climax one of the most spectacular games ever played in
this county. The score was 6-0 in our favor.
'I'he next week we proved our ability still further by defeaiing the three
time champion of this section, Sacramento, by a 21-7 score
The county championship was cinched the following week when we
trounced Oakdale by a score of 22-7.
On Thanksgiving day we met Madera in a return game on their own
field, Nlfhat the trouble was no one knows, for the team that we expected
to beat by a substantial score turned around and handed us a 35-7 defeat.
The final game of the season was played the following Saturday in
Stockton, and lost by a 16-0 score.
Thus the season ended, with the prospects for next year the brightest
in history. Only three men are lost by graduation, and with the experience
of the under-graduates, Turlock will be equal to the best.

ln basketball this year, Turlock had one of the most successful sea-
sons of any other school sport, although we were nosed out of the county
title by Modesto. This year in basketball, as in football, Coach Lancaster
had to break in practically a new squad. Captain Critser, Claes and Purdin
were the only veterans left from last year's team.
During this year the Turlock team, through their accurate shooting,
totaled 17 victories out of 21 games. The defeats were due to the inability
of the Turlock squad to come up to form in the early season games.
Next year Lancaster will have four regulars to form the nucleus of a
winning team, Critser, Purdin, McPherren, Carlquist, Kimzeyr. Peter--
son, standing guard, Olson, forward and Claes, guard, are three Turlock
loses through graduation.
Our first game of the season, We tackled Patterson andrcame out on the
long end of 18 to 25. Peterson made his debut at guard. The teamwork
was fair for the first real game.
Denair then clamored for a practice game on her dirt court and the
locals barely escaped defeat, winning 20 to 16. Lancaster found many of
the team's faults.
Hilmar was the next practice game but Hilmar could not stand up. NVQ
won 22 to 14. Coach gave all the subs a chance in this game.
Our next game was with Newman, January 4, on the Newman court.
VVe came home with a 24 to 14 victory. Purdin starred in the game making
On January 5, Turlock had their first taste of defeat for the season.
Madera was our opponnent. They lived up to expectations and won 22 to

llf. The Turlock team could not seem to get going. The team-work that
the locals usually showed was lacking, and many easy shots were missed.
january ll Oakdale was our opponent for our First league game. This
game was played on the Oakdale court and was supposed to be the "jinx."
After one of the hardest games of the year Turlock emerged victorious by
lf? to 18. This is the first time in four years that the Blue and Gold has
conquered Oakdale on the latter's court. Purdin and Critser played excep-
tional good offensive ball. scoring 9 points apiece.
The following Friday, with the Oakdale victory still ringing in the
team's ears, they departed for Dos Palos full of the hope of annexing
another victory, but the local boys could not come anywhere near the basket.
l-We were off form considerably more than in the Madera contest and Dos
Palos hung the Indian Sign on us to the tune of 23 to 22. After the game
we were the guests of the Dos Palos team at a feed.
Manteca came down to play against us in our second league game the
following night and the boys were all in from their trip. Their shooting
was erratic. and we lost by 17 to 12.
Our next encounter was a practice game with f-fughson on January 23.
XXI' won, 42 to lO. Critser made 20 points.
.lanuary 26, Turlock met Modesto, our old rivals. The game was a
thriller from the start to finish. .Xt the end of the first half the "fled and
lrllacku were l point ahead, but as the second half opened Railsback of Mo-
desto dropped tive goals in from the center of the floor, cinching victory.
The score was 25 to 16. The Turlock players were down-hearted but were
waiting' for the game on our own court to get even.
February 1 found us giving Oakdale their second whipping in as many
games. During the last quarter Purdin, Critser and McPherren shot bas-
kets with their eyes closed. Oakdale went home with a 36 to 18 defeat.
On February 6, The American Legion second team was played which
resulted in a victory for the High School by 26 to 14.
The team on February 9 went to Manteca and avenged themselves for
the earlier defeat, trouncing Manteca. by a 33 to 25 score.
ffebruary l5 is the night that Turlock proved to the audience that not
always the best team wins the county title as we sent Modeso home with a
25 to 18 defeat. lt was in this game that Olson, who took Purdin's place
for Turlock, showed the stuff that he was made of. In the last quarter he
made four baskets that cinched the victory. lVlcPherren was high point
man with ll points. Carlquist who played in Peterson's place at guard.
played a stellar game that was hard to equal.
Merced came down February 27 and was sent home with a 25 to 17
On Friday, March l, Turlock played Sonora and came home with a 30
to 21 victory. Critser and McPherren were the main point-getters while
the teamwork of Purdin and Claes was excellent.
For the final game of the season Turlock journeyed to Merced. They
could do no better than garner 21 points while Turlock annexed 29.

Turlock's career in track for the 1924 season is the brightest in years.
This year's tea1n is not made up of such outstanding stars as have the
teams of previous years, but the team is well balanced, with "place" men
in each event. The chances for taking the county meet are all pointing in
Turlock's favor, based upon the standing of the men in last year's county
meet and on the dual meets between our old rival Modesto and our other
Turlock's track schedule is very large considering the limitations put
on by the epidemic in the whole state.
The following are the meets in which Turlock participated, Tur1ock's
strength may be obtained by the scores:
Oakdale 58-Turlock 71
ln this dual meet with Oakdale's unlimited team, We came out on the
long end of the score and annexed another victory for our dear old school.
Modesto 86 1-2-Turlock 156 1-2
ln a dual meet against Modesto with both unlimited and 120 pound

Omission of Baseball
Due to the epidemic of foot and mouth disease, Turlock was forced to
cancel her baseball schedule this year. If the schedule had been attempted
at the latter part of the season it would have been impossible to finish it by
the close of the term.
We managed to play a few practice games, however, and the men show-
ed up well. It is predicted that there will be good material for next year.

Turlock's tennis teams of this year are composed of Karl Claes and
Tommy VVhistler in singlesg Loren Critser and "Buddy" Swenson, doubles:
Doris johnson, girls' singlesg and Betty Olivas and Astrid Delbon, girls'
Turlock is lucky in having this creditable line up in the tournament of
May 10, which embraces teams from Patterson, Sonora, Modesto, Ripon.
Qakdale, Ceres, Hilmar, Hughson and Denair.
In Karl Claes, Turlock has a left-hander with exceptional driving ability.
His drives come naturally and accurately from any position on the court
into which he may be forced. Whistler plays a steady defense which is
baffling to the best. Critser and Swenson make a splendid combination.
Critser is notable for the amazing speed he displays in covering the court.
His net playing is spectacular and effective. Swenson does his best work
in the rear of the court. He executes a formidable service. This pair works
nicely together and is perhaps the best doubles team Turlock has ever
Doris Johnson. a veteran of Turlock. is showing up well this year. She
plays a fast game and is decidedly offensive. Betty Olivas does brilliant
work with Astrid Delbon in doubles. She is fast and plays accurately.
Astrid Delbon is one of Turlock's best. VVhile a lower classman she played
a good game, in her Freshman year winning the championship doubles of
the county with Vera VVallstrum. Her steady offense is valuable to Turlock
The first tournament of the year was held with Hughson on the local

GIRLS' BASKETBALL TEAM
The girls' athletics have not been as strong this year as in former years.
Owing to lack of enthusiasm no regular baseball team was organized.
Aside from basketball this has proved a very quiet year.
However, a strong Freshman and Sophomore baseball team has been
organized and proved exceptionally strong. Horse-shoe, volley-ball, and
track have been indulged in throughout the year.
The year 1923-24 has been a fairly good season for basketball. Because
it is the favorite sport among the girls there was plenty of material for a
good team. The girls practiced long and faithfully under the careful coach-
ing of Miss Halliday. The team was as follows:
Betty Olivas, Astrid Delbon. Gladys Swanson, forwards.
Doris johnson, Helen Wideberg, Mary Crane, centers.
Minnie Halverson, Sylvia Brier, Mary Kiernan, Elsie Pierrow, guards.
December 7, 1923, the season's first game was played with Hilmar on
their court. T, H. S. was victorious. Score 29-13.
December 8, 1923, the Turlock girls played Patterson on their court.
It was a fast game though Patterson won with a score of 10-13.
Turlock went to Hughson on December 12, 1923. This game was play-
ed on a dirt court which slowed it down some. Turlock was victorious.
however, with a final score of 26-17.
The girls. journeyed to Newman on january 4, 1924. and won easily.
At the end of the game the score was 33-10.

Un january 24, Turlock played Dos Palos and fortune smiled on us
again. The Dos Palos girls had excellent team-work but poor shooting.
The first game played on our court was with Ceres on january 23, l924.
It was a fast game. The Turlock girls defeated Ceres. Score 19-9.
Turlock, having been defeated once by Patterson, tried again at Patter-
son on February 10, 1924. The game was unusually rough, and terminated
with a score of 6-10 in favor of Patterson.
On February 15, 1924, Patterson came to Turlock. This was Turlock's
third chance at winning, but she did not redeem herself. Patterson won by
a score of 16-7.
Hughson came to Turlock for a return game on February 20, 1924. lt
was an easy game, Turlock winning by a score of 24-8.
Turlock played Gustine on our court on February 22, 1924. This game
was fast and hard. The score was tied several times but the game ended
in Gustine's favor with a score of 10-12.
The last game of the season was played at Sonora on February 29.
1924. Sonora suffered her first defeat at the hands of the Turlock girls.

The -Iunior Class has undoubtedly many things to be proud of-its
athletics, its members and its pep. The juniors are well represented in the
athletic held and have brought honors to their class as well as to the school.
Those who partook in football were Leroy Holbrook, Loren Critser, Roy
Purdin, B. Busano, Clarence Carlquist, Neil Pimlott and Ira VVatts. The
basketball representatives are Clifford McPherren, Mervin Winkie, Loren
Critser, Roy Purdin, Ira Watts and Clarence Carlquistg and those who went
out for track, Herbert Ferguson, Clifford McPherren, Loren Critser, Roy
Purdin, Leroy Holbrook, B. Busano, Mervin Winkie, Irving Rogers, Alva
Novo, Clarence Carlquist, Eugene Gaston and Ira VVatts.
However, athletics is not the only activity in which the juniors play a
large part. Ina Olson, Clifford Wolfe, and Herbert Ferguson have shown
their talent in debating.
In order to try out any dramatic ability and also to bring money into
their treasury, the juniors gave a play on the night of April 11. The play
that was chosen was a four act comedy of college life, "The New Co-ed."
This was put over in an admirable way and there is material for a splendid
Senior Play for next year. Some of the cast of the play also played an im-
portant part in the school operetta this year, and helped to make it a success.
As the custom goes, the junior banquet the Seniors at the end of the
term. This is an annual event which is looked forward to by the Seniors, and
their expectations were doubly fulfilled this year.
The junior class officers who were elected last fall and have served
during the term are:
Yell Leader-Herbert Ferguson.
The Juniors this year held no parties or picnics on account of wishing
to save their money and enthusiasm for the junior-Senior banquet.
A great deal of the success of the activities of the class of '25 is due to
the advisors, Miss Critser and Miss Evans.

The Sophomore class re-entered T. H. S. with a large membership and
eager to participate in the social life of the school. The Sophomores have
a good representation in all school activities, including music and debating.
A party was the only thing done in a social way but this did not flaunt
them. In organizing. the Sophomore A's chose:
Yell Leader-Wlaldon Delbon.
Their advisors are Mrs. Pulcifer and the Misses VVhite, I-lfalliclay and
The Sophomore l3's elected the following officers to manage their class:
Yell Leader-l-larold Anderson.
Miss Grant and Miss Mittell lent their aid and guidance to this class.
Owing to lack of suitable place for social activities of the school, the
Sophomores broke one of the customs of T. H. S. by not giving the Fresh-
man classes a reception. However, a very original initiation took place on
the football field last fall which the Freshmen will not soon forget.
'llhe Sophomore classes as a whole deserve all the credit that can be
given them, as they are striving to do their best and will no doubt make
themselves an asset to the school.

This class of Freshman also have organized their English classes into
clubs, in which olficers were elected. The object of having these clubs is to
study correct manners. Plays, showing manners both good and bad, have
been put on in the various classes.
Several members of this class have taken part in athletics'-among them
Creighton Ceer, Ralph Carlson, and Harold Peterson.

The 'Freshman B's entered school in February, after quite a dispute as
to whether they should be allowed this privilege. On account of the lack
of equipment and teachers. and also because there would be no special class
for them to enter. the high school hoard felt justified in holding them over
until the next term. However, parents of the students formed themselves
into a committee. petitioned XfVill C. XYood, state superintendent of schools,
and were rewarded hy the decision that the high school could not exclude
The sixty-seven Freshman overcame the usual "greeness" in short
order, and organized their class. The following officers were chosen:
Yell l.eader--Fay Booth.
The classiadvisors who acted as guardian angels for the youngsters
were: Mrs. Roach, Mrs. Salmon, and Mr. Pittman.
After some time various English classes formed clubs and elected
otticers. These clubs specialized in the study of manners and presented
many short plays illustrating the use of etiquette.
As all children love parties, the Freshman B's were no exception, and
a few small parties were held. However. on account of being mid-termers,
no initiation or reception was tendered them.
The only field of activity at the late time of the year, was track. Several
showed their ability in this event. and it is expected that they will hold
some shining stars for Turlock High in the future.

The Striped Button
lt's a cinch," said Splan, the detective. "lt's 21 cinch that no amateur
did this job, in fact it's just about the prettiest piece of work Pvc seen in a
long time." He looked at the ravaged safe and shook his head.
The knob of the combination to which the needle was attached had
been nled in two and the dial itself pried oi with a chisel. The broken rod
which projected alter the dial had been removed, had been driven through
with a blow. The rest was simple. The operation had been again repeated
on the inner door with like success. Though there were many checks the
thief had taken only cash. which amounted to about nity dollars.
"Yeh," broke in a skeptical voice, Ulhfhy would so clever an expert
stoop to such a little job as this, l'd like to know?" This came from Chief
of Police TCH.
"Ask Mr. Geddes here," answered Splan coolly. "Remember the rob-
bery occurred on Thursday night, the night after the school play."
'fYes. Mr. Splan is right in thinking' that the robber expecting to hnd
bigger game. llc would not have been disappointed either if I hadn't chang-
l Page T61
cd my mind about leaving it here. Five hundred dollars in about an hour's
work isn't to be snorted at." Principal Geddes spoke unemotionally as
though unsurprised and weary of the whole matter.
"That window donit look like an out-sider's work to me," flared Teft
and he jerked his thumb toward it impatiently. "Broke the center pane,
right over the latch, just as neat as you please, Now I contend that anyone
unfamiliar with the way the windows lock wouldnlt know how to open
them so easily, without making some blunder."
Splan inspected the window carefully but found nothing except a button
hanging by a thread from a sliv,er in the window. But as he looked at it.
Splan decided that it might be a substantial clue after all because of its very
unusual appearance. lt was black and striped with white, looking much like
a piece of Hat striped mint candy. ln size it was like those worn on meu's
"Irl'm. this may be of value," he muttered. "Did you ever see anyone
in your school who wore buttons like these F"
Geddes frowned at it and after a moment spoke with a marked reluct-
"ll-"ell, l don't exactly relish placing' any suspicion upon any of the
students, but to be fair to the rest of the school, I shall tell what I know.
That button is unmistakably identical with those on Clifford Mann's coat.
l-le was in my office Tuesday and l remember seeing him examine the
locks. I am very sorry to have to suspect him. for though he is a boy that
is shunned by most of the students and very odd, I have always felt a liking
and sympathy for him and 1 personally don't believe he did it." j
'Neither do I," said Splan impulsively. "That's not the work of any
high school kid, and l'll prove it. lt might be that the fellow who really
did it had an accomplice in someone here at school. but that's as far as it
lVith renewed interest Splan set about to examine the grounds beneath
the broken window. lt had just rained and the earth was in a Fine condition
to show tracks.
Splan found them and was at first quite puzzled, expert though he was.
Directly beneath the window was a maze of large and small tracks as though
there might have been a man and a boy. but upon pursuing them further.
Splan came to the conclusion that the robber must have been a cripple. The
right foot-print was only half as large as the left and toed in a peculiar mau-
ner. He also noticed that the large track was smooth. as though the shoe
mig'ht have been newly soled. but the small track had little dents in it like
those made by nails. Carefully he covered up a set of the clearest tracks
that they might not be obliterated and returned to the office where Teft and
Gedde were arguing warmly.
"Gentlemen." he said. "Could you tell me what Cliff Mann looked likc.
how large and whether a cripple ?"
' At the word "cripple" Geddes looked up curiously and said. "Yes,
I Page T71
Cliffs right foot is shrunken and twisted in. He walks with a pronounced
limp. As to size he stands about five feet six and is quite slender."
"XNell," sighed the detective, "things look bad for the boy." He told
them about the tracks but still unsatisfied he asked Geddes to telephone the
boy's house and find out if he was home. Geddes did so and was glad that
Splan pondered several minutes and then announced decidedly, "There
are two points in the boy's favor: first, the job is that of an expertg the sec-
ond is that he is still hereg and a third is this, that if a man is lame in one
foot he is bound to place most of his weight on the sound member, thus
rendering the print left by the lame foot less distinct and shallower. But I
find that the smaller footprint is just as plain and deep as the larger. From
this I would surmise that someone who knows the boy has contrived to
take advantage of his infirmity and place suspicion upon him. The same
person most likely put the button there, too. VVhoever the man is he is
small. judging by the smaller foot-print I should say about five feet three.
Further than that I ean't say."
That evening Splan went to see the boy, but came away knowing little
more than before, except that he felt sorry for the lame boy with the dumb,
hungry eyes, the eyes of a forlorn, ill-treated dog longing for a little affec-
tion. At the first words of the big man he became silent and would volun-
teer nothing. '
As Splan returned to his hotel down the main street, he decided that
he wanted a cigar and stopped at a stand on a corner. From somewhere a
man appeared smiling deferentially, but the detective eyed him coldly. He
was no hypocrite. He hated rats and eoyotes. This slinking fellow made
him think of both. Like a rat he was small of body. His eyes were yellow
and treacherous like a coyote. As he walked across the linoleum covered
lloor his feet clicked like the toe-nails of a dog. After Splan made his pur-
chase he asked the way to a certain building. The cigar man fawningly left
his stand and went to the side-walk with him to point out the way. But
when he returned to his corner, Splan swiftly glanced at his feet. Yes, there
were nails in the bottoms of his shoes and the right one had a long cut
across the back of it. Of course, his suspicion of this man was just a hunch
and there was a pretty good chance of it being wrong, but again. he had
played them before and won out. This fellow seemed to lit in pretty well
with his mental preconception, and there was no harm in watching him.
So on the strength of this hunch. Splan often loitered in the vicinity of
the cigar stand, ever alert for the clue he was seeking, till one day it came.
A large, loud talking man strode up to Ellis, the cigar man, and jovi-
ally exclaimed. "Hey, Ellis, you ever goin' to give back those shoes you bor-
rowed of me last Thursday?"
.X startled angry look flicked across Ellis' face before he answered in a
low voice, "Come around to the house tonight, Bill, and Illl give them to
youf' He forced a nervous laugh and then added. "You don't need to
worry about my wearing them, my feet were not made to drag such big
I Page 781
clod-hoppers around for a steady diet." The other man laughed good-
uaturedly and went away unaware of the venomous glance of the cigar man.
Ellis then looked at Splan apprehensively but that gentleman was reading a
letter at that moment and looking altogether innocent of any interest in
what had passed.
But when night came Splan was near Ellis, house, near enough to over-
hear him say to the owner of the shoes, "Now, Bill, you don't need to tell
the world about my borrowini these shoes, because they'll think I'm a
damned piker. But what's the use of buying a pair of shoes when you can
wear them only on a masquerade party?"
A few minutes later, Splan unobtrusively accosted the owner of thc
shoes, showed his badge of authority a11d obtained the desired 'clod-hoppersl'
with a promise oi quietness about what had happened, from the amazed man.
The next morning as soon as daylight came, the detective was 'htting
the left shoe of the confiscated pair, to the big foot-print under the oiliice
window. They matched perfectly. Splan also noticed a bit of red clay
sticking to the shoe which was like that beneath the window. -
This much proven. Splan realized that he needed even further confirma-
tion of his suspicions. The best way to get that was to go to Cliff Mann
and show him the whole cowardly scheme, then perhaps he would be angry
enough to tell what he knew.
So in the afternoon Splan and Teft, still skeptical, went to the boy's
They found him alone. H At iirst he grew frightened at the appearance of
the Chief of Police, but soon forgot him as Splan's kindly voice and gentle
ways overcame his fears. Clearly and convincingly the detective explained
the situation. till an answering angry Hush suffused the boy's face. His
long slender hands knotted into lists and he cried out bitterly.
"Oh, sir. no one seems to like me. Even ma, scolds and pa strikes me.
lt all seems to be on account of this foot. I just talked to Mr. Ellis because
he seemed to take an interest in me. I didn't think anything about it when
he asked what kind of safe we had at school, or about the way the windows
locked as he said he was interested in inventions and things like that. I like
things like that too and he did talk as though he knew a lot about it. I don't
see how he could be so mean as to lay the blame on me. T-le lTlllSt,2l. cut that
button oii' my coat when T was talkin' with him sometime. l'm glad you
knew it wasn't me." l-le glanced forlornly at the crippled foot.
Splan and Tell showed a sudden and marked activity in connection
with their handkerchieis and noses. Having nothing further to say, they
linally decided that the best way to relieve the embarrassing situation was
to make their exit.
Mumbling something about arresting Ellis before he got wise. they
sought the out-doors.
The boy watched them go and then buried his head in his hands and
fought back the sobs that made his heart ache.
l-le did not hear the kitchen door open softly, nor the foot-steps of the
man who crept through it. But at last he shuddered and gave i11 to an un-
explainable desire to look up. He started and turned white. The feeling of
helpless, paralyzing terror which seizes a rabbit when being pursued by a
weasel, now possessed him till he feared to breath. He bore the sinister
unwavering gaze of those bleak, yellow eyes, while the man came nearer,
slowly and deliberately, till he cried out desperately, "Oh, tell me. what do
you want? XVhat have I done? lho anything but stare at me like that.
Fight in a way that I can light back."
The trance was broken. As the man's thin lips curled back sarcastically,
there was a gleam from the canine like teeth. Standing before the window
through which he might see anyone approach from the front, he spoke
rapidly and teusely.
"XVhat do I want? NfVhat have you done ?" He almost choked on the
words. "XVhy, you suitched on me you snivilin' little runt, thatls what you
did. But I ain't called Slippery -lim for nothin'. I was watching the house
when those birds came in and I came in too, only by the back door, and
when I get through with you I'm goin' out the same way: goin, where tha'
fool detective never can find me. I fooled you and I fooled them and I'll do
it againfl He chuckled sardonically. "Borrowin' one of Billls big shoes to
look like yours was pretty clever of me if I do say so. But understand that
if you say anything more, one of my gang will get you, ii I can't. Remember
that you yellow pup. If you weren't a cripple I'd give you what's coming to
you right now." I-Ie leered threateningly at Cliff.
Quite unexpectedly the boy spoke out.
"If you're so careful about pickin' on a cripple, why did you try to lay
the blame on me in the first place ?" His eyes flashed with the very thought,
"If I'm a yellow pup, you're a dirty skunk. I'll say it though you may kill
me for it." X
Incoherent with rage, Ellis cast discretion to the winds, I-Ie bounded
toward the boy and struck him in the face: the lad grappled with him and
they rolled to the Hoor. thrashing and kicking wildly. Suddenly Ellis felt a
hand seize his collar in the back and the boy tore out of his grasp.
A moment later Ellis' hands were imprisoned in hand-cuffs, while Splan
stood looking at him with a glance of mingled anger and amusement.
Finally he spoke with a gleam in his eye, "Usually I call myself a fool when
I leave some belonging of mine behind, but this time I chose the right place.
I left my memoranda book here and didnlt discover it till I was about half
way down town. By walking fast I arrived in time to hear your gallant
confession and a good calling down." I-Ie looked at Cliff and laughed.
Come on Cliff, let's take this bird to his new cage."

"Big Tv Society
ln order to maintain good school spirit and to accentuate school activi-
ties, the "Block T" men of Turlock re-organized the "Big T" society at the
beginning of the second semester this year.
It was decided that the "Big 'l"' society should not be coniined solely to
athletics but become an honorary society to which anyone might gain mem-
bership by virtue of his participation in any of the activities, such as Debat-
ing, Drama. and Music. and his general attitude toward the welfare of the
school. Due to Mr. lQancaster's influence the society has in this way been
made broader and a better instrument for school betterment. Through it.
close co-operation can be secured among the influential members of the vari-
ous departments and activities in attaining things pertaining to better school
At the lirst meeting of the society a new constitution with these and
other principles embodied was adopted and officers were elected. LeRoy
Holbrook was chosen president, Lyle jackson, vice-president, Dick Steele,
secretary, and Elbert Smith, treasurer, '
W'ith this foundation the society embarked upon its career. Several
new members were admitted enlarging the society. Stringent and impres-
sive initiations were held in the gymnasium by which the candidates learned
their duties. Many of the faculty became members.
The society does not lack in social life. At the time of this annual going
to press it had enjoyed one very successful party held at Lancaster's home:
It is believed that parties should be a regular part of high school life as they
provide for better feeling and companionship among the students.
:Xt present it is difficult to prophecy how well the rejuvenated society
will succeed in all its aims and aspirations. lt is believed that next yearls
student body ofiiicers will be largely candidates selected by the society.
The society believes that enthusiasm is the greatest of all its assets.
Enthusiasm tramples over pride and prejudice, spurns inaction and storms
the citadel of its object. Like an avalanche it engulfs and overwhelms all
obstacles. So goes the trend of the creed adhered to by the society in its
sincere effort to make 'Turlock High a better school.
DICK STEELE. '24.

The high school organization of the Turlock Girl Reserves was organ-
ized two and one-half years ago under the leadership of Mrs. Albert Julien.
This club is a branch of the Y. XV. C. EX., and nine women who comprise
the XfVO1T1CI'l,S Council help and advise the girls in their work.
About fifteen girls started the club, and now there are over Fifty in it.
Mrs. Julien having resigned, a supervisor and three leaders took her place:
namely: Mrs. E. B. Osborn, and the Misses Leila Evans, Dorris Eddy
and Flora Thomas.
The club has done much for poor families. At Christmas they bought
presents for the little children and clothes for the mothers. They have taken
active part in public affairsg also, a Colonial Tea, Japanese Tea and Bazaar
mark a few of the things they have done. Two Mother and Daughter ban-
quets were given.
For two years there has been a summer camp at Bass Lake. The girls
spent a week there both times, enjoying swimming, fishing and hiking.
In February. a conference was held at Fresno. Girl Reserves from all
over the state were invited. Three girls, two leaders and the supervisor
represented Turlock. They brought back many new songs and yells for the
The Girl Reserves as yet is a small organization, but will be able to
do much more in the future with their aim-to help others, and to find and
give the best. MELBA COVENEY. '25.
Bow- W ows
The Bow-Xkfows of nineteen hundred and twenty-four started oh' with a
kick. Out of hundreds of applications twenty-hve were selected. making
the club small and exclusive.
The organization had to uphold its high degree of pep, therefore the
first function was a theatre party. Then came the initiations, which were
duly carried out in a shroud of mystery. C????l
After the gang had become better acquainted, they eagerly formulated
plans concerning another 'blow-out"! This oncoming success was a social
function that will forever hold in the reminiscense of the Hold Bow-XVows."
All through the past year every main event was headed-"Bow-lafowsf'
W'hat does this mean? Wfby, it means that a successful attempt to
create a social order has been completed. But this can no longer be called an
attempt, for now that the order has a hrm foundation it will continue to be
a successful organization in putting pep into the school.
The Bow-Vlfows have not only been prominent in social life but have
also been active in athletics. The pep at all the games was furnished by the
Bow-VVOWS with their barking mascots. The club has been instrumental
in placing the best material of the school in student body affairs. Every star
athlete in school is affiliated with the Bow-Wiows. BRUCE SCI-IOTT, '25

El Circulo Espanol
For years it has been customary for the second year Spanish Class to
organize a club. The precedent was not changed this year. and the twenty-
three members of the second year Spanish class organized themselves into
At the first meeting of the club it was decided that officers should hold
ofiiice for one semester. Also the name, El Circulo Espanol, meaning the
Spanish circle, was adopted. The meetings were held every other Vifednes-
day and took the place of the regular lesson for that day. The officers
chosen for the first semester were: president, Theodore Hohenthalg vico-
president, Evangeline Carlsong secretary, Beatrice Fiorini: program com-
mittee, Richard Steele, Vivienne Service and Lygia Erdman.
The program committee arranged the entertainment for every meeting.
At one meeting the club traveled through famous Mexican cities with guides
who explained all the wonders of the old cities and answered any reasonable
questions. Another time the club dined in a large restaurant with Spanish
waitresses and Spanish menus. Spanish music and games always proved
The Hrst semester a party was held in the Domestic Science rooms and
though poorly attended was vastly enjoyed by those present,

tary, and Astrid Delbon, Sheldon Decker. Hubert Thompson, program com-

Le Cercle Francais
"This is my fourth meal since lunch." moaned lone Rapp as she languid-
ly strolled into Mlle. Pelliccia's Cafe. "Une tasse du cafe." Elbert Smith,
apron in hand, stepped in and hurriedly wrote the order then disappeared.
"Queer how empty l feel," remarked Ione as she whirled out of the fashion-
able cafe later.
The conversation was overheard at one of the club meetings held semi-
mouthly by l,e Cercle Francais. At these meetings Franklin Carlson pre-
sided and in his absence lfVinona Johnson. vice-presidentg lone Rapp. secre-
tary, kept accurate French record of all that occurred.
The committes, appointed by the chair of each previous meeting,
brought forth what their enthusiastic eltorts had accomplished. Sometimes
it was a plan for a, trip to the famous cities of France: at others elaborate
French menus, to be eaten in spacious dining halls of French cafes.
The enthusiasm and good will of Le Cercle reached its height at the
French party given by the teacher Miss Graham. l-lere the genius of the
Club and the ability of the teacher as director were portrayed. "La Lettre
Charg'ee" and "Les Etreinesn were admirably played and the entire evening
was passed in a manner never to be forgotten. as have been many of the
meetings of the group.
Later in the year "La Pouclreaux Yeux" an exceptional French play,
was presented by the club.
