SPAULDING A0X0X°X°yC X0X X0 X° O PAPX°X X X XOX X yC X°XOX? ?X P F O ItE W O H D jOWN through the years there has come to us the legend of the Viking. Those hardy Norsemen took upon themselves the task of pushing ever outward through uncharted seas to unknown lands; theirs was the spirit of the pioneers. In a somewhat like manner we are pioneer ' ing; to us has been given the work of charting the unknown waterways. But our efforts, our struggles are destined to become obscured in legend and tradition. Our names, as is only just, will be forgotten. We alone, however, may take the honor of laying the foundation. To us has been given the pleasure and joy of pushing into the unknown. The return is worth the effort. And though our work may be forgotten, its influence will be eternal. This book marks the close of a period. Two things have come to pass, namely the assurance of the University at Westwood and the entrance into the Pacific Coast Conference, which mean that the days of groping and wandering are passed. The outcome of the future is certain. Let this volume of the Southern Campus express our Ave and Vale. Hail to the Future; Farewell to the Past!

You will re- call, at least some of you will, that a cer- tain writer frequently closes his story of a campaign by saying: " After this battle the army erected trophies and withdrew into winter quarters. " Strangely enough, some of those trophies erected by victorious Roman armies still stand to tell what they did in that now distant day. That is the point; this book is to last a long time and to tell you who make it and all others into whose hands it may come what you did here. It will do that, for whenever you turn its leaves it will call up in your minds thoughts of your class and your class- mates, of your instructors and your studies, of your struggles and your triumphs, and of the long, long dreams of youth which were yours here. The best of those dreams you are taking away from college with you to enact into the reality of your life. This volume will prompt you to meditate many times on just what you should value of all you have gained here. There are many answers to the question: What is the best thing the col- lege offers? Some say it is the opportun- ity it affords its students to make friend- ships which are worth keeping as long as life lasts. Others believe that its reason for being is not so much to introduce its students to each other as to introduce them to the best that has been thought and said by the human race since it began to be. Still others insist that it is what the student is constrained to think out and determine for himself while he is here that sums up the worth of our common en- deavor. I confess to that conviction. Fellow-students are ends in the same sense we are ends, but fellow-students and studies both seem also to be means to the end that we may find ourselves and become ourselves. You will find, I think, that you have been concerned here most of all in determin- ing what you care for, what you cherish, what you really mean to create and fight for as long as you live. " Life, " it has been said, " is like playing a violin solo in public and learning the instrument as one goes on. " You will continue your public performance with all the patience, thoroughness, and skill which you have learned to put into it here — and your playing will grow better. Dr. Ernest C. Moore, PH.D.. L.L.D. ,hC h y M f - notr ' t, — [26] Dean ( ' . H. Ruber Dean Charles H. Richer is a true Californian. He was born at Placerville, California, and has spent the greatest part of his life in the state. Dean Rieber received his degree of Bachelor of Arts from the University of California at Berkeley. He then went to Harvard, where he received the degrees of Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy. When he returned to California, Dr. Rieber became Principal of Public Schools in Placerville. He soon went back to Har- vard, however, this time as Assistant Professor of Philosophy. Upon his return to California, Dean Rieber served in the same capacity at Leland Stanford Junior University. From there he went to the University of California at Berkeley, at which place he not only acted as Assistant Professor of Philosophy, but also as Dean of the Summer Session. In 1918 Dean Rieber managed the Semi-Centenary at the northern institution, showing great skill in the management of it. Since he has been at the University of California, at Los Angeles, Dean Rieber has worked indefatigably for the Uni- versity. He not only formed the College of Letters and Science, of which he is Dean, but did much toward securing the four year term and the Degree of Bachelor of Arts. Dean Rieber is very patient, but he is a firm believer in the fact that there is a time when patience ceases to be a virtue. Another wonderful personal quality which Dean Rieber possesses, is that of being able to understand the particular difficulty which the individual presents to him. These qualities have enabled the Dean to make many friendships, and to accomplish much among the students. The University owes much of its success in the past few years to the steady, thoughtful, guiding help of Dean Rieber. DEAN OF THE TEACHERS COLLEGE Dr. Marvin Lloyd Darsie, Dean of the Teachers Col- lege, is one of the leading educators in the United States. Dean Darsie received his degree of Bachelor of Science from Hiram ' s College in 1908. While at Hiram ' s, Dean Darsie made his letter in both track and football. He came to Cali- fornia in 1911 to attend Stanford University, where he ob- tained his degree of Master of Arts in Education in 1912. The following year, he taught science and coached athletics at Glendale High School. In 1914 he went to Lincoln High School in Los Angeles, where he likewise was an instructor in science and a coach of athletics. Before he became Dean of the Teachers College, Dr. Darsie was an instructor of Education in the Los Angeles State Normal School, and in 1919 became head of the Department of Education at the University of California, at Los Angeles. He served in this capacity for three years. In 1924 he gave up his duties for a year, during which time he obtained his degree of Doctor of Philosophy " at Stanford. Although Dean Darsie has many duties to fulfill at the University, he finds time to write num- erous articles, and has conducted various surveys in the past. One of the most important of the latter was a State Survey, conducted in 1921-22, on the intelligence and achievements of Japanese children in California. Another survey was that conducted in 1920 on the educational department of the Whittier State School. After this survey. Dr. Darsie directed the work of reorganisation in the same Dean Marvin L. Darsie [27] DEAN OF MEN Dr. Earl J. Miller came to the University of California, at Los Angeles, in 1923 as Assistant Professor of Economics. In 1910 Dr. Miller received his diploma from the high school of Indianola, Iowa. For two years after his graduation he taught in a country school. Then, m 1911, Dr. Miller re- turned to school, and attended Simpson College for the fol- lowing three years. He interrupted his college work for a year, during which time he travelled. He was graduated from Simpson College in 1916, and really started his career as an educator by teaching in the Indianola High School. He taught there until the entrance of the United States into the World War. During 1917 and 1918, Dr. Miller served with the American Expeditionary Forces in France. On his re- turn to the United States, he entered the University of Illi- nois, where he received the degrees of Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy in 1921 and 1922. After teaching Economics at Illinois for a year. Dr. Miller came to the local University where he became Dean of Men in 1925. Dean Earl J. Miller Dr. Miller ' s personal qualities admirably fit him for the position which he holds. During the two years that he has been Dean of Men, Dr. Miller has rapidly won the respect and friendship of all who have had the opportunity of meeting and knowing him. His deep interest in the various student activities has brought him in closer contact with the men of the University, and his excellent advice and assistance have brought about the solution of many of the problems which inevitably arise in every institution. Dr. Miller is a frequent visitor of the athletic field, and every contest finds him on the side-lines, an ardent supporter of the Bruin totem. DEAN OF WOMEN Mrs. Helen Matthewson Laughlin is of British extrac- tion, being a native of New Zealand. She came to America as a child and received her education in the California schools. She is a graduate of the Monrovia High School and of the Los Angeles State Normal School. In both institu- tions she was an honor student. Mrs. Laughlin has spent much time abroad and has taken advantage of the opportun- ity for advanced study in foreign lands as well as in the United States. Mrs. Laughlin is our first and only Dean of Women. When the Los Angeles State Normal School moved to the present site of our University in 1914, she was appointed its first Dean of Women. When that institution became the Southern Branch of the University of California, she re mained as Dean. Mrs. Laughlin served the Normal School in several capacities, and as president of the Alumni Asso- ciation, she raised the funds with which the granite corner stone for Millspaugh Hall was purchased. Dlan H. M. Laughlin Mrs. Laughlin ' s experiences in organizing and in organ- izations have been many and varied. Because of her ability to work with people in all walks of life, she is a popular and effective public speaker and her sen. ' ices are constantly in demand by women ' s clubs, girls ' leagues, and civic bodies of all kinds. Because of her experiences in life, the students of the University of California at Los Angeles find in their Dean of Women a woman of the world, broadminded, sympathetic, tactful — and possessed of a fund of good common sense to help them with their daily problems. [28] The government of the University of CaHfornia is entrusted to a group of men who are known as the Regents of the University.

With the raising of the American flag and the Blue and Gold pennant of Califor- nia over a crowd of some eight hundred students, the Governor of the State of Cali- fornia, officials of the University, and mem- bers of the faculty, the new campus at Westwood was officially dedicated on the afternoon of October 2i, 1926, and another milestone in the history of the University of California at Los Angeles was solemnly passed. The University Band and members of the R. O. T. C. participated in the flag raising exercises, conducted near Founder ' s Rock, in the huge natural amphitheat er. The throng stood with bowed heads as an invocation was uttered by Reverend Willsie Martin, Los Angeles clergyman. A speech of welcome was given by Director Ernest C. Moore, and addresses followed by President Campbell, Maynard McFie, member of the Committee of Seventeen, and Friend William Richardson, Governor of the State. Ned Marr, President of the As- sociated Students, spoke following the rais- ing of the American flag, and then William Henry Crocker, Chairman of the Finance Committee of the Board of Regents, ad- dressed the gathering.

" A-- K1-SH3-1 5tM(ient cAdministration A MESSAGE FROM THE STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT The University of California at Los Angeles is no longer the institu- tion that was formerly referred to as an overgrown high school. It is now a full-fledged university and is able to stand its ground. Developing from a two-year course with two thousand students in 1919, our young institution has grown until It is now seventh in size among the universities and colleges of this coun- try. Instead of two thousand students, there are now six thousand who have the opportunity not of a two-year course, but of one of four years. But by no means has the maxi- mum of development been reached. A new site in Westwood Hills and a bond issue of three million dollars, voted by the people of this state dur- ing last November, makes for a most prosperous future. Along with this immense academic development there has been a parallel prosperity in the line of student activ- ity. The students cannot be recom- mended too much for their interest in the recent bond campaign, the success of which must in a large measure be attributed to their untiring efforts. Probably the greatest single thing to happen to this growing institution in the Southland during the past year has been the invitation to join the Pacific Coast Conference. This supreme step in ath- letics was only made through our splendid showing in every sport during the last two years. As a result of such progress we are able to stand on the same level with the other leading universities of the West, not only academically, but athletically. During the course of the last eight months, the totem of the University was changed from " Grizzly " to " Bruin. " This change was deemed advisable as the former totem was already used by a member of the Pacific Coast Conference, and continued use of " Grizzly " would only lead to conflict. One of the greatest problems during the past two semesters has been the preparatory thoughts and actions in the moving of student activities to Westwood. A student union building has been the cen- ter of such endeavor. Realizing that when the move to the new campus is made there must be some provision for the housing of these activities, a comm ittee has been constantly at work to plan the financ- ing of such a building. Those who have attended the University for the last time must feel that during their period on the campus, they saw an institution grow from childhood into manhood, and finally onto the plane of a well-established University; it has been their privilege to give in this growth, to help their Alma Mater through the hardest period, the transitional stage. Students in future years are indeed fortunate. May they appreciate and take advantage of that which is offered them with the same degree of satis- faction enjoyed by those who made possible such advantages a number of years earlier.

Its members are John Terry, Fred Spellicy, William Atherton, George Bishop, Earle Gardner, Eugene Patz, Stephen W. Cunningham, general manager, and William H. Spaulding, ath- letic director. I f WOMEN ' S ATHLETIC BOARD The purpose of this board is to manage all women ' s athletics, foster a spirit of co- operation and sportsmanship, and promote a higher physical efficiency among the women of the University. The executive board is as follows: Pres- ident, Betty Mason; Vice-president, Jane Hoover: Secretary, Dorothy Bailey; Treas- urer, Betty Hiatt; Faculty Advisor, Miss Hazel J. Cubberley; Presidential Appoin- tee, Charlotte Cavell. The Women s Athletic Board [43] Interior of the General Mana(.er s Offic GENERAL MANAGER ' S OFFICE Keeping up with the progress of the University, the office of the General Manager, under the successful supervision of Stephen W. Cunningham, Cahfornia ' 10, has been making rapid strides for- ward. The Manager of the Associated Students acts as the business agent and superintends all athletic and other matters pertaining to the student body. All matters of vital importance to every A. S. U. C. member are taken up in this office, all schedules emanate from there, transactions involving new coaches, new equipment, and contracts with other schools are there discussed and drawn up. It was principally through the efforts of this office and of Steve Cunningham that the entrance to the Pacific Coast Conference was effected. The same may be said of the coming of Coach William " Bill " Spaulding to the local University to assume such an important part in making possible entry into big league football circles. Working under Mr. Cunningham is a capable staff of assistants. Miss Elsie M. Jeffery, who holds the position of cashier, first came to the University in 1923. Mrs. Katherine Lovatt, who assumed her position a year after Miss Jeffery, acts as bookkeeper. Miss Gladys Humrichouse is a stenographer, who, in addition to her regular duties, keeps the books of the California Bruin and acts for the General Manager as Secretary of the Council, taking the Council minutes. As assistant to the General Manager, Earle Gardner supervises the work of the sport managers and arranges the details of all athletic events. In addition to this he also does much of the buying of sup- plies for various student activities. The importance of the General Manager ' s office cannot be over- estimated, for through it is effected the goodwill attitude which other Stephen W. Cunningham colleges have at the present time for the University of CaHfornia at General Manager Los Angeles. [44] THE CO-OP Guided by Joseph Juneman, Jr., manager, and the Student Finance Board, the Co-operative Store, run entirely by students of the University, has prospered materially during its brief career and has at the same time given excellent service. The Finance Board, composed of Louise Gibson, Robert Kerr, Ben Person, Dean E. J. Miller, and Stephen W. Cunningham, acts as a Board of Directors for the store and has initiated many new features, the main idea being to develop better service in the vari- ous departments which include athletic goods, mimeographing, candy, stationery, books, art supplies. The new ideas which have been established have aided the Co-op to the extent of making the grand turn-over for the year ending August H, 1926, of $130,000, an increase of $1 ' ),000 over the previous year. All profit made by the store is turned over to the Associated Students for further work in vari- ous activities. During the past year, the Lost and Found, and the Mimeograph Departments, formerly handled on a different basis, have been taken over by the management of the Co-op. Miss Dorothy Milligan, ' 28, in charge of the former department, declares that " we have one of each article ever used by any student — used or worn. " The Mimeo- graph Department is, under the super- j vision of Miss Florence Rawlinson, ' 27. ' This department also handles typing and fills a need on the part of both students and faculty. Many instruc- j tors prepare briefs for their courses and t are here able to obtain any number of copies desired. Miss Marion Hutton, ' 2 ' ), aided by Miss Helen Ohly, ' 21, has charge of ] the book department with additional part-time students as helpers. Miss Sarah Bethune, ' 27, has charge of the I art department; Miss Betty Keating. : ' 27, handles stationery; Leslie W Kalb, ' 25, manages the refreshment _„• stand, and Joseph Fleming, ' 29, acts as relief departmental manager. ■45] Safe from the chattering co-ed, a man can become himself in the Men ' s Quad. Women forbid- den, here he may feast on hot dogs and beans without the disdainful glances of the girl friend. Here he may make excellent use of his fingers, without fearing that he may be thought gluttonous and plebeian. The Men ' s Quad has a top-notch lunch counter where one can obtain one-minute service. There is ample time for a bite between classes for the man who craves brain food; it is the ideal place to wrangle out the topics of the day, contentedly smoking a careless cigarette. The Men ' s Quad provides an excellent location for Frosh haz- ing. What could be more enjoyable to a Soph than forcing the poor long-suffering frosh through various wearisome tasks in the midst of an enthusiastic throng? Then there is the Big " C " bench where only the Seniors may rest their weary bones. Woe betide the poor innocent underclass- man who makes the mistake of putting his hips to rest on this for- bidden seat of the mighty. The Men ' s Quad is an unqualified success. It is a success, be- cause back of it there is not the idea of profit, but only the wish to serve and to serve well. THE WOMEN ' S QUAD The Women ' s Quad, which is merely the new location of what was formerly known as the Tower Room, is situated in the South Quad. The Tower Room was started in 1925, to supplant the old cafeteria in what is now Lecture Hall. The Tower Room, con- demned as a fire trap, is now replaced by the Women ' s Quad, where the women may obtain hot dishes, soups, sandwiches, desserts, candy, ICC cream, and other articles at a very low price. Instant service by expert helpers gives ample time for other en- joyment before the next class. The tables are situated under a vine- covered arbor which keeps off the sun ' s rays. Here the women may enjoy an excellent luncheon. [46] lumni CALIFORNIA ALUMNI ASSOCIATION University of California Alumni are now organised into the largest group of men and women of its kind in the world, the association comprising more than 16,000 paid up and active members. Mr. Robert Sibley, " 03, executive man- ager of the California Alumni Association, has in his three years of service, built up the association from a group of 3,000 alumni members to its present status of 16,194 mem- bers, a number far exceeding a goal of 15,000 set in a recent membership campaign. Alumni are kept in touch with the University and ito activities through the medium of the ' " California Monthly, " an Alumni magazine at Berkeley, at a cost of $2500 per month. At an annual meeting of Alumni representatives at Columbus, Ohio, the California Alumni magazine was com- mended very highly by a board of critics, who passed on respective merits of Alumni magazines from all over the country. They stated that the ■ " California Monthly " was the most newsy of any Alumni publication in the country. Well written, well illustrated, it is exceptionally interesting to Its Alumni. Each issue of the magazine carries with it a section devoted to U. C. L. A. news, as well as representation in illustrations; in the athletic section, accounts of football, and other sports; editorial comment, news of classes, etc. Robert Sibley Executive Manager Fred Moyer Jordan, ' 25, is head of the Alumni activities in Southern California. He is a grad- uate of the local University, and is retained by the California Alumni Association as assistant to Mr. Sibley, executive manager. At the beginning of the vear he was elected for the fourth time to serve as alumni representative on the Associated Students Executive Council. One of the first acts of the Alumni Council when it convened early last fall, was the establishment at the Southern California office of an Alumni Bureau of Occupation under the management of Mr. Jordan, similar to that which has been in operation at Berkeley for some years. As assistant manager of the Bureau of Occupations, the Alumni Council appointed Miss Margaret McCone, graduated from the University of Cali- fornia at Berkeley and formerly connected with similar bureaus in Berkeley, in Oakland, and in New York City. All direct contact with applicants, with certain exceptions, have been handled by Miss McCone, who chooses the men who are to answer calls that come into the office. The need for establishing such a bureau was amply proved by the response given on the campus. In the first month of the establishment the new bureau succeeded in placing in part time employment seventy-six students whose aggre- gate salary for the month of September amounted to $2,370. Two hundred thirty-one men registered with the bureau during the month of October, which number was increased to two hundred eighty-four during November. At the end of the three months " period, the registration at the bureau was well over six hundred. All those registered for work were divided into two classes. Students who had to find work if they were to con- tinue their course in college were given preference over those i.nj.-p Moykr Jordan seeking work to earn spending money. Assistant E.xccutivc Manager I [48] Miss McCone at her desk IN THE Alumni Office Part time employment was offered to men at the Univer- sity in such varied occupations as mail clerks, typists, sales- men, janitors, carpenters, ush- ers, messengers, switch-board operators, chauffeurs, and draftsmen. One man secured a position as tutor to a noted motion picture star recently arrived in Hollywood from Germany. The report from the Bureau shows that 100 jobs of a per- manent nature were furnished to students during the fall of 1926. Jobs of a temporary nature were provided in 491 cases. About 800 placements were made during the Christmas holidays when students were able to find employment in the post office, American Express, railway mail, department stores, and at the New Year ' s game as ushers, gate- men and ticket sellers. Through the Casting Bureau in Hollywood, many men were given opportun- ity to appear in motion pictures throughout the year. Considerable attention was given during the second semseter of the past year to the making of the initial contacts necessary for placement of Alumni. The plan materialized to such an extent that six alumni graduating in February, 1927, were able to find permanent employment through the activi- ties of the Alumni Office. Co-operating with the Bureau, the Dean of Women and her assistants were able to secure many positions for the women. The occupations chief in demand were those of assisting in private homes, caring for children, etc. Eighty-six positions of this type were secured. The field of occupation fur- nished a great variety of work including everything from life guards and furniture decorators to nurses, dieticians in hospitals, and special tutors in music and French. $2 ' 61 was the total amount of wages of sixty-seven regular monthly positions, and $14, ' i00 the total of 290 post office workers at $50 each during Christmas. A grand total of $18,870 in wages for the Christmas month was made by 389 University men who received places through the Alumni Bureau of Occupations. SOUTHERN ALUMNI BOARD Seven alumni, graduates of the University in Los An- geles, have served during the past year as members of the Southern Alumni Board, having been elected by mail ballot. Among those voting for the Alumni Board officers were in- cluded three hundred members of the 1926 class, who estab- lished a fine percentage by attaining more than a seventy- five per cent membership m the Association. Present indi- cations are that this figure will be excelled considerably when final returns are checked on the Alumni membership of the Class of 1927. . As Chairman of the Southern Alumni Board, Elder Morgan, ' 23, who deserves much credit for his untiring lab- ors, has been able to offer the Southern California office the Sv " S c ' ret ary " 11 and able co-operation of graduates of the University - Southern Alumni Board Los Angeles. Thelma Gibson, ' 2 ?, has been workin; [49] A Conference in the Southern Alumni Office him on the board and is also a member of the general executive council of Berkeley. Mr. Morgan is also ably assisted by Attilio Pansi, ' 25, Adaline Shearer, ' 25, Helen Jackson, ' 26, and Cecil Hollings- worth, ' 26, councillors. Owing to the fine administration of this year ' s board, the first southern alumni publication was issued in October in the form of the " Southern Alumnus. " The first issue was a four-page news pamphlet which stressed alumni activities in general, and alumni support at the Iowa State game, in particular. The first meeting of the newly elected Alumni Council convened at a dinner held in the Faculty Club at Berkeley. At this time Julius Wangenheim, ' 87, President-Elect of the Cahfornia Alumni Association, began initial efforts which have seen well-merited success for his year in office. Among the major problems considered during the first year of Mr. Wangenheim ' s regime are included the establishment of higher restrictions as regards membership in the California Alumni Association, and a thorough-going efi ort to vitalize alumni centers throughout the state. Officers of the Alumni Association for the year were President Julius Wangenheim who sits as a member of the Board of Regents; First Vice-President Everett J. Brown, ' 01; Second Vice-President Frank Stnngham, ' 95; Treasurer Robert Sproul, ' 13; Assistant Treasurer Robert Underbill, ' 15; Executive Manager Robert Sibley, ' 03; Assistant Execu- tive Manager, Fred M. Jordan, ' 25. The November Bond Campaign constituted a vitally important part of the vast campaign of the Southern Alumni. The committee, under Mr. Sproul, Vice-President and Comptroller of the University, was organized for the purpose of securing the passage of the Proposition 10 on November 2. Alumni Committees, organized in over five hundred California cities, had much to do with the passage of the proposition, which was victorious by a count of more than three to one. Fred Moyer Jordan, head of the Southern Office, says: " Alumni activities here are in promising shape, but we real- P, „„„ xx„„,. M i:e that we have just started our work and that our best nLDER M0R( ' AN j ■ ' ,, Chairman, Southern Alumni Board years are ahead of US. [50] Qlasses Francis McKellar, President Sarah Cahill, Vice-President Margaret Reed, Secretary Richard Davis, Treasurer Francis McKellar Senior President Occupying a position that has never been equaled be- fore in the history of this University, the Senior class of 1927 came up through the different stages of its career, winning an overwhelming majority of its contests with other classes besides holding the record for more new ideas initiated and fostered. This Senior class is unique in that it has never lost a major inter-class mix-up, its nearest contact with anything like defeat being encountered in the 1926 Junior-Senior foot- ball game which resulted in a dead-lock. The class of ' 27 inaugurated the new tradition of this upper-class gridiron struggle in its Junior year; it started the idea of the annual Junior-Senior cord dance; it has had much to do with the establishment of new traditions, and with the fostering of old ones; and lastly, it has participated in all activities, spreading its fan-like branches out into the channels of Uni- versity life in such a way as to present an enviable record for the next Senior class to equal. The first step in college life was started by the winning of the Brawl as Freshmen, marking the first and last time to date that any Frosh class has won the event. Several months later the 1927 Fresh- man football team brought the first gridiron championship to the University, a championship celebrated by a fitting evening dance on the tennis courts. Then during the Sophomore year the class brought more honors to itself by again winning the Brawl. During the Junior year there was felt the neces- sity of an inter-class tangle with the then high and mighty seniors. ' 27 sent out a challenge. As a result the first Junior-Senior football game was held, with the class of ' 27 coming out on top. During the Senior year the power that had formerly beaten all comers dimmed somewhat and the second inter-class encounter in football ended in a 6-6 tie, the class of ' 28 giving the Seniors a good run for their money. The two gridiron tangles proved to be good from another point of view in that they netted a neat amount of gate receipts, thus providing additional funds for use in other class activities. During the Freshman year the football, basketball, tennis, swimming, cross-country, box- ing, wrestling, and inter-class championships were won. The women of the class won the inter-class basketball cham- pionship, tied for first place in swimming and indoor baseball and took second in outdoor baseball. During the Frosh year, three notable dances were held, and a " Green Day " took place in the spring, featured by green paint and much merriment. A Freshman girl won the National Oratorical Contest, and three members were on the Varsity cham- pionship squad. A large bon- fire contributed to the excite- ment of the year. [52] ' " A HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1927 Freshman officers of the class of 1927 were Francis McKellar, president; Martha Summcril, vice-president; Esther Northrop, secretary; and Martm Scott, treasurer. As Sophomores, the members of " 27 took iirst in swim- ming and wrestling and second in track in inter-class com- petition. In the women ' s division, three firsts were accounted for m basketball, swimming, and indoor baseball. Again, as Sophs, the class won the annual Brawl, gaining the dis tinction of being the first class to ever win the event twice. " Sophomore Day, " a new event, was inaugurated in this year by 1927, and has continued to be a notable affair, guid- ed by the successive Sophomore Service Committee, the first of which was organised in the same year. As Sophomore president, Frank Field handled the exec- utive duties of the class, and was aided by Helen Johnston, vice-president; Louise Gibson, secretary; and Francis Lyons, treasurer. g „ C. HILL , , Senior Vice-President When ' 27 became the Junior class, the men came through with firsts in baseball and wrestling, and a tie for first in boxing, while the women won the inter-class ba,sketball, hockey, and outdoor baseball matches. The feature of the year appeared in the form of the Junior-Senior football game, the first tangle of the kind to be fought to a finish on Moore Field. The members of ' 27 hurled a challenge which was immediately taken up by ' 26, and the two classes began in earnest to prepare their most stalwart men for the great encounter. Coached by John Jackson the Junior team came through to win in a hectic hour of thrills and excitement, 7-0. The first of its kind on the local campus, the game proved so popular that it was estabhshed as a yearly tradition. Featuring the social calendar, the Junior Prom was held in a blaze of glory on April 30 at the Hotel Huntington, Pasadena. Excellent entertainment, including a colorful Spanish dance, in addi- tion to a Grand March led by President Ned Marr and the vice-president Natalie Bassett, was out- standing, and splendid music and lighting effects combined to make the affair one to be long remem- bered. Two other social affairs of importance were given during the year in addition to the Junior- Senior cord dance and the class banquet. The officers in the Junior year were Ned Marr, presi- dent; Natalie Bassett, vice- president; Madeline Bray ton, secretary; and Arch Tuthill. treasurer. In its Senior year the class carried out an extensive program in a most satisfactory manner. In athletics, the Junior-Senior football game again claimed much of the limelight, the mix-up endine after a spirited fight in a 6 fi tie. The result of this game left the Seniors undefeated in inter-class scrambles through their four years of activity, their conquests being the two Brawls and the first upper- class football match, the sec- ond gridiron game being a tie.

Their oppon- ents, however, took advantage of a pair of fumbles and man- aged to tie the score, so that the whistle showed tlie count to be 6-6. [89} Procession oh Faculty at Senior Commencement THE FINAL DAYS OF SENIOR ACTIVITY Commencement week ushered in the last days on the campus for the class of ' 27. The impres- sive ceremonies of graduation took place early in June, and almost before they realized it, the Seniors had left behind the old familiar walks and the portals of Millspaugh Hall for the many paths of life to be traversed. The Senior Ball, the climax of the year ' s social program, was held on June 10, imme- diately after the close of Commencement Week, and " finis " was written on the last page of the class history. The Ball followed a series of social events held throughout the year, managed by the guiding hand of Sarah Cahill, class vice-president. A series of banquets were held, one each month, begin- ning in February and ending with the final Senior Banquet. Richard Davis Senior Treasurer Frank McKellar filled the president ' s chair throughout the year to good advantage, and it was due to his efforts that the work of the class was carried out. Sarah Cahill took charge of affairs when Frank went east, and acted in many ways to keep the class going at full speed. Margaret Reed as secretary and Richard Davis as treasurer lent their aid to the maintenance of class activities. Keeping its hands on all matters of importance, the Senior Board of Control made all the plans for class meet- ings, and aided the treasurer in the handling of the finances The Board was composed of the following people: Frank McKellar, chairman; Frank Field, James Reese, John Cana- day, Robert Kerr, Bruce Locking, Alden Miller, William Neville, Nate White, Ralph Bunche, Ned Marr, Julius Blum, Dick Davis, Sarah Cahill, Natalie Bassett, Madelim- Brayton, Elcy Eddy, Lois Fee, Louise Gibson, Eii:;abcth Mason, Genevieve Molony, Marian Munson, Helen John- ston, Beth Shuler, and Margaret Reed. Looking back on the history of the class of ' 27 through its four years, it may safely be said that the record made is one which will not soon be equaled. And though the mem- bers of the class are leaving the University, their spirits will remain to guide those who follow them in future days. 1 [90] Richardson, Brown, Munson, Cunningham THE JUNIOR CLASS Thomas Cunningham, President PauHne Brown, Vice-President Virginia Munson, Secretary Frank Richardson, Treasurer After three years of activity on the part of the students comprising the class of ' 28, the group stands on the threshold of its greatest year in college, the Senior year. From the time of the election of officers in September to the closing days of the school year, the Junior class was one of great activ- ity. Led by Tom Cunningham, president, the class was much in evidence in University alfairs. Pauline Brown as vice-president, gave much time and eifort in the carrying on of Junior business, while Virginia Munson acted as sec- retary, and Frank Richardson juggled the finances. One of the best Junior Proms ever held took place on April 29. Splendid music and unusual decorative effects combined to make the affair one to be remembered. Among the lesser events on the social calendar, the Junior- Senior cord dance stood out above the others, the second dance of its kind and as good if not better than the first one, held the year previous. The class dance, held October 22, during the first semester, carried out the idea of class colors, old rose and gray, very effectively. The dance was held at the Oakmont Country Club. On December 9, all Freshmen were invited to attend a Christmas party held at Newman Hall, sponsored by ' 28. The dance besides being a Junior party and a Frosh welcome affair, was also turned into .i football rally for the Junior-Senior game, held the next da ' An eight-pound turkey was presented to Everett Moore, the Junior who drew the lucky number.

Junior President [91] [92] Grant. Edwards. McConnell, Stewart THE FRESHMAN CLASS CLASS OFFICERS Caroli Grant, President Evelyn Edwards, Vice-President Bruce McConnell, Secretary Jerome Stewart, Treasurer On September 14, 1926, Father Time ushered in the largest freshman class in the history of U. C. L. A. They were a meek, yielding group of children whose (irst acquaintances were the goldfish in the pond, introduced by obliging Vigilantes. After a mild form of hazing and an introduction to the customs of the University, they settled down to business. Nearly ninety percent of the class attended the election of class officers by which Carroll Grant was elected presi- dent, Evelyn Edwards, vice-president, Bruce McConnell, sec- retary, and Jerry Stewart, treasurer. Under the capable leadership of Caroli Grant, the affairs of the class progressed smoothly and satisfactorily. By co-operation and hard work, the sale of freshman dues attained a high percentage, enough money being collected to tide the class over into the sopho- more year. The Brawl was a disastrous failure for the Peagreeners, whose leader, Caroli Grant, was spirited away by the wily sophomores. But the Freshies felt compensated when they viewed their handiwork on the enormous bonfire built for the Pajamerino the night before the Occidental grid contest. A number of class dances and informal get-togethers featured the social program throughout the year. As a fitting climax, the " Freshman Glee " was staged in the latter part of March at the Elks Club. Great splendor and dignity marked the formal event. Decorations of green and white furnished the proper background. A dancing contest increased gayety while entertainment by celebrities s erved to bring out the hearty California spirit.

The Frosh being on the business end of the entertainment protested as usual, but under the watchful eye of Major Wheeler and his Blue Shirted Co- horts, the newcomers gave an even better exhibition than usual. Such sights as that of a puny little sophomore rounding up fifteen or twenty big freshmen and marching them around and around in lockstep formation tickled the funny bone of the bystanders for several days and the shouts that greeted the inspired orations of young Mark Anthonys with rolled up pants caused frowns of disapproval on many professors ' other- wise benign countenances.

SOPH ' FROSH BRAWL As the dust, smoke, blood and paint floated away from Moore field on a Wednesday after- noon, the twenty-second of September, the Sopho- more class found themselves, albeit somewhat dazedly, on the long end of a four to one score. These are the bare facts of that sanguinary annual encounter, the Freshman-Sophomore Brawl, which yields first place to nothing but the Big Game for being the battle of the ages. Superior organization on the part of the class of ' 29, plus the added moral effect of the enforced absence of CaroU Grant, president of the freshman class, won the day for the yearlings by a decided margin, the frosh win- ning only one event, the pole rush. In accordance with University tradition, the Blue C society sponsored the event, with Coaches Frampton and Ackerman in charge, while Dean Miller, Coach Oster, Coach Cousins and Steve Cunningham held down the judges bench.

THE ANNUAL RIOT Promptly at two o ' clock the peagreen men, m name as well as color, entered the south gate of Moore field in Indian file, finding the Sophomore battlers en- trenched in the shadow of the north goal, cloaked in little more than ominous silence. By this time the bleachers were cheering frantically, so, after the usual inspection for concealed weapons, and the ruling out of a sophomore machine gun, clever- ly hidden on top of the gym, twenty coal heavers and piano movers from each class lined up for the tie-up, the first round of the struggle, and the war was on. Whether hampered by stage fright, buckfever or overtraining, the first few minutes were devoted to little save cautious seemingly amatory overtures, but soon the stands were on their feet, craving blood and yet more blood, in quest of a realistic illustration of the ' 29 poster picture.

YE JUNIORS AND YE SENIORS It was tournament day at the stronghold of my good Earl Erudition, The air reeked with guttural systems of noise emanating from the esophagi of clumsy yokels drawn to the festivities by the prospect of mayhem and gore in the feats of manly prowess which were to begin at the nonce in the jousting yard. Bux- om maids, chattering like squirrels, and minc- ing the sweetmeats provided by their swains, lent an enlivening atmosphere to the ominous air that clung about the tournament field. Brave men and men of brawn and brain were to try their prowess on the sward before the assembled multitude. Blood would flow, and mortal groans would rise from crushed frames, and dauntless thanes would expire in glory and in sweet agony on the field of battle. All was ready. Medicos swarmed here and there, giving a last examination to their stock of bandages and arnica. The stretcher corps stood rigid beside its traveling beds. Officials and judges of the tournament, wild- eyed and nervous, twitched and shook, and fingered their fire-arms and oiled their stop- And Hate Was in Their Eyes But They Shook Hands Like Men Each Wished the Other Luck Yet Hoped He ' d Choke, Remarkable Action Photo of Seniors Failing to Block a Kick, [108] ii Tom Cunningham.

" Men, " he groaned, " if I don ' t ever see any of you aHve and breathing again I know you done your duty. Up and at them barbarians, and may you perish in glory. " He collapsed. Squire Henderson, unable to rouse himself to rhetoric, collapsed without more ado. His warriors staggered to their feet and stumbled to the jousting field. Tears filled their eyes. The pits of their stomachs rolled and heaved. The two contending forces lined up on the field, that awful field that would claim so many stout hearts.

There was no way out, except by way of the hearse. At this news the stands sent up a tumultuous storm of approval. Banners waved frantically, shrieks and yells pierced the air. Throats were in the pink of condition. For days past the owners of these Al gullets had been practicing. These precious organs had been oiled and re-oiled, inside and out, against the afternoon of vocal demonstra- tions. Nobody knew anything about the assembled warriors, more than that they were powerful, beef-eating bruisers who harbored grudges — deep-seated, thick- headed grudges — that could be satisfied only by the forcible extraction of arms from sockets and the employment of these dismembered bludgeons as instruments for battering their late owners into a state of per- manent coma. Ah, delicious! With a heart-rending sob, the umpire pulled the trigger of his field piece. His heart sank. By that act he was sending brave men to their doom. But it mattered not (very) to them.

A wealth of flags, orange and black drapings, and University pennants, together with the bright hue of gowns worn by the women formed a riot of color which added much to the festivity. Everywhere was the spirit of informality prevalent. Tunberg ' s ten-piece orchestra furnished the music for the dance and between numbers native Col- umbians in costume from the Million Dollar Theatre entertained. Eddie Peabody, the popular and youthful Metropolitan Theatre orchestra leader, was there with his banjo, playing as many requests as time permitted. Taking advantage of the fact that this was the final opportunity for the Amendment 10 rally, a spirited appeal for support was made and an enthusiastic response received. Members of the welfare board, executive council, the presidents and vice-presidents of the classes composed the reception committee. This dance is an annual event of the University at which all stu- dents are invited to participate. It is given at the beginning of the year and serves as a means of bringing forth that old Bruin spirit which lies dormant during the summer holidays. Crowell, Lockling.

Effectively carrying out the patriotic motif, American flags, guns, company guidons, and other military paraphernalia were placed around the hall. Even the dance programs were bullet shaped. Officers resplendent in uniform mingled with the tuxedoed men and the charmingly gowned women. Starting the affair, the traditional Grand March took place at nine o ' clock. Each of the following dances had a certain military significance and was announced by the bugle calls of " Rev- eille " , " Taps " , and " Mess " . The feature of the evening was a dancing contest which was won by Barbara Malaby and Joseph Farnum.

Solemnly, with the realization that this was the last time that the Class of ' 26 would meet as a body, the dancers responded to that same old spirit of comradeship that was so reminiscent of the joys and good times that they had shared during their college days. The club was beautifully decorated with spring flowers, class banners and colors. Programs were enclosed in handsome leather folders made decorative by means of a class crest. Dancing was to the accompaniment of the Drake Brothers ' Orchestra. Varied entertainment was given throughout the evening. The close of the evening came all too soon to those who were saying their last farewell to their Alma Mater. [133] J IOWA STATE DANCE On the afternoon of November 27 two football teams met on the gridiron lined up against each other, one representing an eastern college and the other fighting for a university on the Pacific Coast. That evening the hand of the west was stretched out a little farther to grasp the hand of the east in a hearty handshake and welcome. Starting a new precedent, the University of California at L. A. entertained with a dance in honor of the visiting lowan football team. The Elk ' s Club with its old Spanish architecture formed an effective setting for true Southern California greeting. The hall was decorated with streamers and college banners. Blue leather programs bearing the crests of the two universities were provided in hopes that they might serve as a reminder in years to come of this ' cross continent meeting. Never at a university dance has there been shown a warmer welcome or a truer collegiate spirit. I JUNIOR DANCE Combining a rally with a most enjoyable evening, the Junior Class gave an all university hop at the Oakmont Country Club, October 22. At this time football enthusiasm was at its height and a spirit of friendly rivalry mingled with keen anticipation of coming victories had been aroused. Preceding as it did the great game with Pomona, played at the Coliseum the following day, this dance was pervaded with spirit, which was outwardly expressed by the streaming serpentines, shrill cries of the horns, and the music of the orchestra. The hall was cleverly decorated with streamers of class colors and the programs also carried out the Junior ' s rose and silver. With informality as the keynote, the dance was carried on joyously. I [134] I i JUNIOR-SENIOR CORD DANCE Diminutive corduroy trousers made into dance programs hang on many a co-ed ' s dressing table reminding her of that Junior-Senior cord dance held Friday, March 4. The women ' s gymnasium, the scene of the merry making, was converted by means of overhead hangings cleverly worked out m the colors of the two classes represented, beneath which upper class men in corduroy trousers mingled with women dressed in colorful sports outfits. A decidedly new feature in the form of a balloon dance was introduced. Toy balloons were tied to the ankles of the ladies and in the dance that followed wild attempts were made to break as many balloons as possible. The hall was vibrant with the delighted shrieks of the women as they successfully evaded some menacing onslaught or sadly mourned their loss. Coming at the end of the year this aifair served as a means of ending the rivalry that had ex- isted between the two classes and cemented a friendship that was to be everlasting. SENIOR DANCE As the first of a dehghtful series of social events on the calendar of the seniors, a class dance held on the evening of October 24, in the women ' s gymnasium. It was in the nature of a " " pep " affair, with gaiety and friendship as the reigning atmosphere. Since the affair was given during the university bond campaign, the Westwood tags sold on the campus to further the campaign were used as admission cards to the dance. Occurring the evening after our football team defeated Pomona in a most memorable football game, the very spirit of victory walked among the revelers, enhancing the joyousness of the occasion and lending an added degree of charm to the evening. Novel decorations, Paul-Ray and orchestra, and programs of silver and blue, and class colors, all combined to make the dance one of great pleasure for all who attended. [135] ATHLETICS CALIFORNIA IN THE WORLD OF SPORT Rising meteorkally. ever climbing upward, the California Bruin has clawed his way to a well- deserved place among the elite m the realm of Pacific Coast athletics. The past year has seen the Bruin cast off his swaddling clothes and step forth with arm of steel and courage unsurpassed to encounter rivals stronger than anv yet met by teams of the Blue and Gold. The athletic season of 1926-1927 is especially significant to the Blue and Gold of the Southland in that it mar s the last appearance of Bruin teams in the Southern Conference, of which the University has been a member ever since its inception. Beginning January. 1928. the Bruin adventures forth to vie for Pacific Coast and national athletic laurels as a full-fledged member of the Pacific Coast Conference. Entrance into the stronger conference may not be so serious a step as at first appears. Bruin teams have for the past several years opposed Pacific Coast Conference representatives in the majority of sports. Moreover, the Bruin has fared far from poorly in these encounters. On each such occasion the Blue and Gold luarriors have demonstrated their fighting prowess to the satisfaction of the most rabid sceptic, ayid have often been victorious. It is this fact which has prompted the Pacific Coast Conference to extend to the Bruins the invitation to become a member of the greater organization, which invitation was accepted bv the Athletic Board. Fortified with a strong coaching staff, headed bv Wilham H. Spaulding. California teams are now ready to meet the best that the coast can offer on equal terms. The full portent of this most recent promotion will be revealed only as the years roll by. But even now it is obvious that it will mean that Bruin teams will have greater opportunity to achieve fame and glory. It means that the University has come to be recognized as one of the leading educa- tional institutions of the West, and Bruin teams will have ample chance to impress that fact indelibly upon the public conscience. However, it is not without some regret that the Bruin leaves the Southern Conference. He has been accorded ro al treatment there and has developed inspiring friendly rivalries. The move does not signify that the Blue and Cold has become " too big " for the present conference, but rather that it has at last become big enough for the Coast conference. Unexpected, disappointing rei erses, and heroic, glorious victories have attended the efforts of Bruin athletic teams during the past year. But both in victory and defeat the Bruin has been a fighter, a clean, hard fighter, who has won the admiration and enthusiastic support of an ever-greater coterie of sport-lovers. Brum coaches have been as one in instilhng m their charges true sportsmanship tactics as one of the fundamentals of the game, whatever it may be. The student populace, too, has been splendid m its support of its teams. Whether playing on foreign fields or at home the Bruin has always been greeted with a resounding roar of encouragement as he enters the fray. This support has been the inspiration which has fired many a Bruin team to turn defeat into victory. Whatever lean years have fallen to the lot of the Blue and Gold are now memories of the past. The Bruin of todav ' stands on the threshold of a neiv era, which reveals to him dazzling possibilities within his reach, if he will hut strive relentlessly for them. We have fought our way up the ladder. We have shared hardships and burdens sympathetically and uncomplainingly. How the top rung of the ladder is within grasping distance. Whether or not we ta e hold of it depends on how we meet the future. The ultimate answer is to be found in the attitude of every Calif ornian. be he rooter or player. We can now loo bac on the sparse years of the past and smile in the nowledge that they lie behind us. They are memories which make warm the present. The future is in our eeping still. Let us all pull together to ma e the Brum athletic record one of cheerful yesterdays and conjident tomorroivs. [137] [138] AN ESSAY ON ATHLETICS By William H. Spaulding A steady and healthy development has taken place in college athletics during the past few years. In the better colleges and universities of today, competitive sports are well organised and carried on in a dignified manner. Professionalism is being gradually stamped out through the help of level-headed faculty advisors, conscientious coaches and athletic managers. Proselyting, improper outside interference and many of the old evils are becoming less evident each year. The athletic program of today is a part of the edu- cational scheme of the institution. The college athlete is impressed with the idea that he is in college iirst to get an education and that his athletic participation is secondary. Competitive athletics, and particularly such fighting types of games as football, basketball, track, and tennis, are very much worthwhile. There is nothing that will build up real college spirit like a hard fighting team, whether it wins or loses. There is nothing that will develop a young man ' s character more than to be a mem- ber of a college team. Coaches are beginning to realize more and more that athletes of a high type make the best players. Men who made good grades are sought after more than ever. Athletes who live right are val- uable because they have the stamina and character to hold up in the pinches. Men who are loyal to their college and to their team, and to the game they play are the type that make up winning teams. Clean athletic sports offer an inspiration to the youngster who is scarcely over ten years of age. He aspires to play the game as someone he knows or reads about has played it, and he will do anything to keep fit. There is nothing like an athletic game to develop loyalty and fighting spirit among the boys and young men of the present time. Fighting spirit is a necessary ingredient to success in any line of en- deavor, whether it is in business or in some profession. In other words it is the fighting spirit that comes from character that counts in the end, and I know of nothing that develops the finer qualities of character more than athletic spirit. William H.

By determining the athletic policy of the University of California at Los Angeles, the Athletic Board of Control is instrumental in the athletic affairs of the institution. Although the board itself does not directly execute the policy which it formulates, it is of extreme importance in the development of that policy. As the board represents all forms of campus thought, it is able to know and respect all views on athletic affairs. Director Moore gives the board the attitude of the Admini.stration. Dr. Morgan, Chairman of the Faculty Athletic Committee, Dr. Miller, Dean of Men, and William H_ Spaulding, Director of Physical Education, are further able to present the faculty athletic opinion. Through his position as President of the Associated Students, Ned Marr, ' 27, is able to give the student viewpoint, while Fred M. Jordan, ' 25, can express alumni thought. Stephen Cunningham, California 10, brings in the financial aspect. Since the board gathers all opinion on University athletic matters, it can establish a policy which is satisfactory to both the administration and the students. [141] [ 1 2 ] [ 143 ] THE YELL-LEADERS Too much praise cannot be given our able trio of cheer leaders, and to Howard Carpenter, yell king, and his assistants, Joe Farnum and Howard McCollister, we give due credit. Their leadership throughout the year was consistently good, and with the superabundance of spirit which the student body manifested at all times, they were most successful in bringing out a maximum of noise and enthusiasm. The University has enjoyed a successful athletic year, and not a small part of the success may be charged to the varsity cheer leaders. Their handling of the large rooting sections at the football games in the Coliseum are especially worthy of praise. In the middle of the fall semester a transition had to be made to the University totem; another reminder of the changes which have been coming thick and fast. In discarding " Grizzly " and choosing " Bruin, " it was found that in most cases the changes in songs and yells worked out very well. Nevertheless a contest was held for new songs and yells, and several original contributions were added to the collection. Guiding the enthusiasm of students on the field in the right manner takes a world of effort, and to Carpen- ter, Farnum and McCollister we tender the appreciation of the entire student body. Theirs was the best Cali- fornia spirit seen in many a year, and it inspired the stu- dent body with great confidence and enthusiasm on every occasion. [144] ifr football [146] The 1926 Bruin football schedule was replete with exciting and hard-fought games. However, every coach must of necessity " point " his team for certain crucial contests m which the plums of victory are more tasty than m any other game, — and likewise more difficult of attainment. Such were the Bruin combats with the Occidental Tigers and the Iowa Cyclones. Because of their important nature and the intense interest manifest throughout the Southland in their outcome, they are accorded special treatm.ent. The Occidental Tiger has been traditionally the most bitter athletic rival of the Blue and Gold in the Southern Conference. Victory over the Tiger goes a long way toward the maki ng of a successful season in any sport. Annually the two institutions hold their enthusiatstic pajamerino rallies on the eve of the Bruin-Tiger fray. School-spirit is fanned into a white heat, the players are trained to the finest edge in anticipation of the combat, and a terrific battle invariably ensues when the elevens are finally unleashed. The results of the gridiron battles with the Tigers over the past two-year period have been exceedingly gratifying to the Bruins in that decisive victories have been earned in each in- stance. The Iowa game marked the initial intersectional contest indulged in by the Bruin. [147] Califoinia drew first blood shortly before the end of the first quarter, when on .i poor punt by Brobst of Oxy. the Bruins took the ball on the Tiger 40-yard line and marched down the field to the 5-yard line, from which vantage p oint Fleming ran around the Oxy left end without being touched, to score.

Coach William Spaulding ' s remarkable 1926 Bruin gridiron eleven dug its claws deep into the hide of the Oxy Tiger and won a glorious victory by the decisive score of 24-7. The game was played in the Los Angeles ' ' Coliseum, on the afternoon of November 6, before the largest and most colorful crowd ever to witness a Southern Conference contest. Coach Spaulding had been preparing for the Tiger battle for two weeks previous to that memorable afternoon, and when the Blue and Gold warriors dashed out onto the Coliseum turf midst the deafening plaudits of the Bruin rooters, there was a precision, a dash and determination there that spelled victory.

Joe Fleming, fleet-footed Bruin half, blazed his name deep into the roster of the California hall of football fame by his sensational ball- toting against the Tigers. A bad break for Oxy in the first quarter, in the form of a short punt in midfield, accounted for the first blood of the day. In seven plays, with Fields and Fleming carrying the ball, the Blue and Gold drove from midfield, Fleming plunging over from the one-yard line, and then neatly converting. Flemmg put the Bengals deeper in the hole in the second period by placing a beautiful field-goal between the uprights from the thirty-five yard line. Then came Fleming ' s " piece de resistance " and the play that turned the game into a virtual rout of the Tiger. On the second play following the ensuuig kick-otf, Joe took the ball on his own thirty- one yard line, squirmed through left-tackle, and ducked, swerved, and straight-armed his way sixty- nine yards through the entire Oxy secondary for his second touchdown. He again converted, and the score at half-time was California 17; Occidental 0. The lone tally of the Tigers came as the result of a lucky play in the early part of the third quarter. The Bengals at- tempted a long thirty-yard pass from their own forty-yard mark, and a wide-awake Bruin defensive man had apparently intercepted it, when the elusive sphere bounded out of his grasp THE GAME ' S HIGHLIGHTS For the second time in as many years the Bruins defeated the Tigers, heavy favorites to win. The Bruins made twelve first downs to nine for the Tigers. The Bruins made 360 yards from scrimmage while the Tigers made 197. Joe Flemmg carried the ball 199 yards, once making a run of 69 yards to a touchdown. He scored two touchdowns, converted three times, and kicked a field goal for a total of eighteen points. Charles Barta, Bruin wingman, scooped up a fumble and rambled seventy-five yards to a tally. Joe Fleming.

A series of terrific Hne plays netted the Tigers a touchdown, with Fusco going over on the fourth down from the one-foot line. The final Bruin score came late in the fourth quarter on a pretty play by the two Bruin wingmen, Julius Beck and Charles Barta. Beck rushed in on an Oxy passer and knocked the ball out of his hands. Barta, close behind, recovered the bounding pigskin and raced seventy-five yards to the Orange and Black goal line, pursued by a pair of desperate would-be tacklers. With the count standing at 23-7, Fleming ' s dependable toe added the extra point and ended the scoring for the day. The entire California team functioned like clockwork, and displayed the same fighting spirit which carried the Blue and Gold to a 9-0 victory over the Tigers in the previous year. The work of Joe Fleming was outstanding, but every man on the squad played a stellar game. Bert La Brucherie ' s punting had much to do with keeping the Tigers beyond scoring dis tance, the forwards giving him plenty of protection on his kicks. Earl Fields at full displayed plenty of drive when bucking the line, and Jimmy Armstrong ' s defense against Oxy ' s passing attack was fauhless. Jim Hudson showed rare grit when he continued to play bang-up ball in spite of injuries. For Occidental, Mishkin played well, but was kept in check by the Bruin forwards who broke through the Tiger line time and time again to smear the Oxy backs for losses.

[135] 9 ' m IT CALIFORNIA BRUINS IOWA STATE 20 Standing squarely in the path of a tor- tuous, twisting cyclone from Ames, Iowa, a determined Bruin lowered his head and bat- tled ferociously before twenty thousand peo- ple in the Los Angeles Coliseum November 27, and though he was considerably buffeted about, the big bear was still on his feet when the final whistle pierced the wild noise of the cheering thousands. The final count was 20-0, but the score does not tell of the dogged resistance of the Bruin eleven, nor does it hint of the indomitable fighting spirit that carried the Blue and Gold squad down to the very shadow of the Iowa State goal posts time and again before a stiffening defense and unlucky breaks cost them a chance to score. Iowa State was good. Their record during the past season in their own conference and their performance against the Bruins in this first intersectional meeting between the two universities proved that. The Ames team had a great offensive machine in Miller, Lind- bloom, and Lamson. In addition, the visitors had a powerful forward wall that was the equal of anything seen in action around these parts during the season. Starting with a rush. Coach Spaulding ' s squad took the ball on the kickoff and carried it from their own 25 yard line to Iowa ' s 45 yard marker before meeting any serious opposition. Forced to punt, the Bruins went on the defensive and the ball see-sawed back and forth in the middle of the field until late in the first quarter. The Cyclones then unloosed a brilliant driving attack and marched from their 30 yard chalk line to the Bruin 10 yard mark just as the period ended. Coming back after the delav, Lindbloom broke through his own left tackle and put over the first score of the game. Capt.mn Ha iim 111 rni Briins am.

A fumbled punt on the twenty-five yard line paved the way for the sec- ond tally, and near the end of the first half the visitors punched over for the six points with Miller packing the oval. Late in the t hird quarter the Bruins exhibited the most stub- born defense of the day when Iowa got the ball on the Blue and Gold four yard line and failed to score on four downs. A pass intercepted by Weiss of Iowa, combined with a lightning run- ning attack engineered by Miller, Lindbloom, and Lamson, accounted for the final marker. Thomas again converted. That ended the scoring for the day, although the Bruins staged a furious comeback late in the game and almost succeeded in wiping out the goose egg with a fast open field and passing attack. Two grounded throws, however, broke the advance, and the lowans punted out of danger. Following the second touchdown, made by Ames in the first half, the Bruins launched a powerful attack with Fields going up through the line, and Fleming running the ends. A pass from Birlenbach to La Brucherie at this point placed the ball on the Iowa ten-yard line, but on the next play the ball was fumbled and the attack of the Blue and Gold was brought to an abrupt close. For the local squad Hudson and Beck were the outstanding performers in the line, while Bishop and Peterson came in for their share of good defensive work. In the backfield Fields turned in an ex- cellent game, both on oifense and defense. La Brucherie also showed flashes of brilliancy, but was not consistent. Fleming was unable to break away for any large gains, being kept in check by Coe and Anderson, the prize wingmen for the lowans.

He always gave all he had and was a loyal and conscientious leader. " . Coach Spaulding f r Having completed his third year on the varsity. Captain Charles Hastings laid away his moleskins at the conclusion of the 1926 season and henceforward will watch the Bruin football teams from the sidelines rather than lead them on the field. But while Hastings has left active competition under the Blue and Gold standard, he will he long remem- bered for his fine leadership of the squad and for his con- sistent performance during the three years he played on the Bruin teams. Although unusually light for a center, Hastings more than made up for this deficiency by his speed and fight. An accurate passer, he was also an important cog in the defen- sive combination. His naturally cheerful disposition, and his cool-headedness in the heat of the most important games made him a capable captain and one well-liked by his team- mates. Hastings was the unanimous choice by his fellows for the captaincy of the 1923 frosh squad, and he is the only man to also have been chosen to lead the varsity after having received such a distinction. A hard and clever fighter always, his absence will be keenly felt when the team assem- bles in the autumn to begin the annual football campaign.

He is a natural leader and possesses the fight- ing spirit to pilot a successful team. " . . . . Coach Spaulding Scribner Birlenbach, captain-elect of the 1927 squad, has been chosen to lead the team at one of the most critical points in its career since the arrival of Coach Spaulding heralded the beginning of a new era in Southern Branch athletic history. With the assurance that this university will enter the Pacific Coast Conference in 1928, it has become miperative that the Blue and Gold squad prove its right to enter the ranks of the great institutions of the West by win- ning the Conference title next year. That Birlenhach was the choice of his fellows to lead the team in this last attempt to gain the coveted honor after having barely missed it in the past two years, is indicative of their confidence in his abilities as a leader and as a player. Birlenbach takes the helm with two years of varsity ex- perience behind him. As quarterback of the 1926 squad, he directed the play of the team through a schedule replete with hard-fought battles and well-earned victories. Thor- oughly familiar now with the Spaulding system, he can be counted upon to direct the team play with even greater effec- tiveness in the coming year than he did in the past. ' With a strong team of well-seasoned veterans returning next year, Birlenbach stands an excellent chance of being the first and last captain of a Bruin team to annex a Southern Confer- ence championship. •■ [161] CALIFORNIA BRUINS 13 -ALUMNI 7 Coach Spaulding afforded the waiting pubHc its first ghmpse of the 1926 Bruin gridiron machine when the varsity engaged an all-star Alumni aggregation on Moore Field, September 18. The varsity won by a 13-7 score. Being the initial contest of the season, the game was ragged and loosely played. Close observation, however, disclosed the fact that the Bruin eleven for the ensuing season would be potentially very powerful. The Alumni graybeards displayed a remarkable brand of ball in view of the fact that they had never before played together as a team and had had little or no practice. The varsity rolled up a thir- teen point lead by means of steady line-plunging. In the la st few minutes of play, however, the all- stars afforded the only bit of spectacular play of the day by making fifty-five yards on a pass and scor- ing a moment later on another pass which was good for eight yards and a touchdown.

It was the second contest of the season for the varsity, and the team displayed truly remarkable improvement over its showing against the Alumni squad the week previous. Coach Spaulding substituted frequently and the work of no one man was outstanding, but the splendid team work of all the various combinations used was impressive. The Roadrunners had great difficulty in stopping the Bruin backs in their off- tackle slashes, and found the Blue and Gold impreg- nable. The game was fast and clean, no fumbles and few penahies marring the proceedings. The Bruins started off at a fast pace, scoring m the first few minutes of play by battering their way down the field, and at no time thereafter were they threatened. The lighter visitors were simply hopelessly outclassed, and it was only their valiant fight in the face of discouraging odds that kept the score down to respectable proportions. Stanley Gould.

The score tells nothing of how hopelessly the Bruins fought. The record book will relate that it was 16-6, but it will tell nothing of the numerous and costly fumbles of the Bruins, nor of how Whittier outplayed and outgamed them from whistle to whistle, as if they were in a state of coma. It seemed that fate had simply decreed abeyance of the long-prayed-for Bruin vengeance over the Poets. The Blue and Gold showed a disappointing reversal of form over the brand of ball displayed in the San Diego game. Team-work was noticeably lacking; fumbles and poor tackling were painfully in evidence — everything seemed to go eveiy way but right. Credit must not be taken from the Whittier eleven, however. They were primed to fight the Bruins off their feet, and each and every one of them performed his role remarkably well. Tom " Denny, plucky little Poet quarter, did much to dishearten the Bruins by a brilliant ninety-yard dash from the kick-oif straight down the middle of the field, imme- diately after he had put the Quakers ahead with a field goal from the 2 5 -yard mark. Pendleton ' s end run in the last quarter accounted for Whittier ' s other points. Cali- fornia ' s only score was made by Armstrong on a 15 -yard dash through left tackle.

Spiral Against Pomona CALIFORNIA BRUINS 27 - POMONA 7 Why take half the game and a numcnius number of first downs to score your touchdowns when you can make them on one lone play? Because Bert La Brucherie, a little but mighty man, asked him- self this question, Pomona College ' s championship-contending football team bowed down to defeat be- fore the newly christened Bruin varsity in a crucial conference clash, October 23. The fray was fought in the Los Angeles Coliseum, a vast bowl that seats, if forced to bulge, approximately 80,000 country- men, yet which contained at this melee a crowd closer to 12,000. It was the first time a University of California at Los Angeles football aggregation had ever trod its turf in public competition, and Bert and his mates duly initiated themselves. As said, it was because La Brucherie figured a quick score much more convenient than one that comes gradually that the Bruins triumphed over the Sagehens. The result of 27-7 might impel one to think of the scrap as one-sided, but that merely indi rates the insufficient evidence one gets from scores [166] 4 alone. Had La Brucherie not made his eighty-five yard return of Merritt ' s kick-off early in the second quarter, just after Pomona had whittled out a 7-0 lead, the Bruins might not have gotten up enough inspiration to bounce the battling Sagehens. Eleven minutes before the grand finale, U. C. L. A. was atop the Claremont team by a 13-7 count, with Pomona threat- ening ominously to put over a tying touchdown, which, if con- verted, would have sent them to the fore, 14-13. Scribs Bir- lenbach ' s upset of a high pass on fourth down stopped the Pomona rush, and chilled the hearts of the Sagehens. A Bruni touchdown came Robert Angle, Halfback Jamfs Armstrong, Fullback five minutes later to boost the total to 20-7; subsequently Joe Fleming, whose folks live in Minnesota, and whom the realty agents are trying to entice California-ward, leaped several measure- ments into the air, ensconced Merritt ' s pass, and hot -footed it forty yards straight to a touchdown, a feat second only to La Brucherie ' s mad dash earlier in the game. The first quarter, indeed, was not at all a Brum first quarter. Pomona showed so much stuff in this period that when it ended they were within twenty-five yards of the Bruin goal-line. Early in the second spasm, Merntt tossed a neat aerial to Manildi, and the latter gentleman ripped off the distance to a touchdown. Merritt kicked goal and the two teams went back to the kick-off with Pomona lead- ing, 7-0. Enter now Bert La Brucherie. Merritt booted the oval into the arms of La Brucherie on the Bruin fifteen-yard mark, and Bert commenced the customary return. It looked like they would get him on the thirty-yard line, but with splendid interference and blocking on the part of his teammates, he managed to find a clear field. He was hotly pursued by Williams, one of the fastest men in the Conference, and to the dismay of thousands of palpitating Bruin hearts, La Brucherie, hugging the right-hand sideHnes, was being run down. But just at the right moment, Barta, California end, blocked off the pursuer and Bert was away. Williams caught him at the one yard line, however, but it was too late, the ball finally coming to rest beyond the last chalk mark.

From the opening kick-off, the Bruins marched 65 yards down the field to the Bulldog 18-yard line. The Orange Belters ' defense stiffened here, and on the fourth down, Fleming dropped back and booted a field goal. Later in the first period a twenty-five yard pass from Birlenbach to La Brucherie placed the ball on the four-yard line. Fleming plunged over and then converted making the score 10-0. Fleming then added three more points on another place kick just before the end of the half. Two passes, Birlenbach to La Brucherie, netted 55 yards and a touchdown just after the beginning of the second half. Two more scores by Fleming were chalked up before the final whistle. Joe scored every one of the Bruins ' 26 points, while McGilbra made Redlands ' three points on a field goal near the end of the game.

They are littfe heard of, and even less appreciated, hut to them should go a considerable part of the credit for developing the powerful 1926 football team. This aggregation was the meat that the Bruins con- sumed while preparing for the week-end feasts of Tiger roasts, fricasseed Sagehen, Bulldog steaks, etc. The Goofs consist of ineli- gibles and men who lack suf- ficient experience to make the Varsity squads. In addition to their work with the Bruin teams this outfit engages in two or three outside alfairs. The 1926 season marked the second consecutive year that they have been undefeated in their games. In 1925 the Goofs played three tie games, while in the past sea- , i, ■ „j,v son they managed to jump into the wm column, having one victory and one tied game to their credit. They met and defeated the Harvard Military Academy early in the season, and later on held the strong South Pasadena High eleven to a tied score. Punishment galore is handed out nightly to these self-appointed martyrs. Working regularly in the conditioning of the Varsity and Frosh squads, the " All-Amencans " are employed in such ways as defensive scrimmaging and rushing kicks. In addition, these men provide the human dummies for the teams ' blocking and tackling practices— the factor which makes them a most invaluable to the formation of a well-drilled team. Moreover, it often occurs, that through hard work, and the ex- cellent coaching of Coach Frampton, a member of the Goofs graduates to the senior squads. % Fox ALL-AMERICANS L. VER, MaLONEY. LiOYT. H.

If that be true, then Scotty Finlay, popular trainer of the Bruin teams, must have many friends in this University for his untiring efforts in behalf of the athletes o n the campus, " Scotty and his night owls, " is the popular term used to designate the big boss and his assistants in the training room of the gym, and the name is ap- propriate, for they often labor far into the evening at their jobs. They earn but little money for their arduous toil and are seldom congratulated for their contributions, as are the athletes with whom they work. The assistants are Gene Pats, Thomas Devlin, James Dal- ton, Herman Epstein, Scrib Birlenbach, Elwin Davis and Al Sunseri, These men serve in " off season " periods, all of them being athletes, and accustomed to receiving treatment in the quarters themselves during the playing season. Finlay ' s private domain in the men ' s gym is a marvel of cleanliness. Everything he uses from the smallest instrument to the largest rubbing table is spotless at all times. The facilities for the treatment of both minor and major injuries are of the best. It may well be said that this University has the best and most complete equipment for the care of its athletes in Southern California, And it might be added that it has one of the best trainers anywhere, presiding over that establishment. Scotty and his little black bag have become a familiar sight at the athletic contests of the Bruin teams. He is well qualified by nature and by experience to fill this position capably. His personality is such that he has readily gained and held the con- fidence and liking of the men with whom he has worked, with the result that he has been able to instill in them the old fighting spirit that has been so much in evidence in teams of the year past.

A nice number of strong prospects for next season ' s varsity were developed, all of whom showed to good advantage in spring gridiron practice. FRESHMAN FOOTBALL SUMMARY NON-CONFERENCE GAMES Santa Ana Junior College San Bernardino Junior College.. Sherman Indians Freshmen Opponents Occidental Redlands .. Cal-Tech . [174] I ' ICTORY marked the initial per- formance of Coach Fred Oster ' s peagreen gridders, when they met and defeated the San Fernardino Junior College by a l.VO score, in a loosely played game on Moore Field, as a preliminary to the Varsity- San Diego contest. Many of the fumbles and much of the apparent lack of teamwork resulted from the fact that Coach Oster was trying out a number of new hne plays and forward passes in prep- aration for the opening of the conference season. The Saturday before, the Frosh had taken on the Santa Ana Junior College squad in an informal tussle, and emerged after a short, hard struggle on the long end of a 3-0 count. Staging a comeback from their rather mediocre performance against the San Bernardino team the week previously. Coach Oster ' s rejuvenated Frosh eleven galloped over the young Poet babes " goal line four times to win their first conference start of the 1926 season by the decisive score of 27-6. The game was played as a curtain- raiser to the Varsity fray at Whittier. The consistent and powerful charging of the line paved the way for every Bruin touchdown. Brown at tackle and French at center. Bishop at end, and Swaboda at tackle, played a hard, smashing game. Russom, switched from center to the backfield, proved to be one of the cleverest open-field runners ever to grace a freshman eleven. Getting the jump on the Pomona Sagechicks by punching over a score in the first few minutes of play and then adding three more points with a drop-kick, the Bruin cubs walked off with a 10-0 victory in the season ' s first appearance of the Blue and Gold squads at the Coliseum. Mesa, hard-hitting full-back, carried the ball across on a Hne plunge, and Russom added the e.xtra digit v ith a neat drop-kick. The additional three points also came by way of the educated toe of Mr. Russom, when he dropped back to the fifteen-yard line in the second quarter and booted the ball squarely between the uprights. The peagreens walloped Pomona by pounding on their one vulnerable point, the center of the line. Time after time the Bruin forward wall split the Sagechick ' s line and let Mesa batter his way over the guard and center positions for gains of from five to twenty yards. In mussing up the sweeping end runs of the visiting team, Bishop and Rasmus, Bruin ends, played stellar games. Frld Oster Freshman Coach [175] ' J - r V V s». The Frfshmfn Gridders Re-enact the Brawl " And another Redskin bit the dust, " for the week following the Pomona victory, Coach Oster ' s eleven met the strong Sherman Ind ian aggregation in a non-conference tilt and scalped them, 40-0. The Frosh had entered the game decided underdogs, since the Indians had built up a great reputa- tion by virtue of numerous victories over strong teams. Fumbles played an important part in the Bruin victory, although every one of Oster ' s men played excellent ball. Suffering the only defeat of the season, the Greenshirts fell by the wayside in the race for con- ference honors when they came out on the wrong end of a 26-0 score in their battle with the Occi- dental freshmen. The Tiger cubs earned one tou:hdown and snatched the others by taking advan- tage of the breaks made for them by the Bruins ' ' mistakes. Neither team was able to make any appre- ciable gains in the first period, but late in the secjnd quarter a long pass that put the pigskin on the Bruin five-yard line paved the way for th e only score of the iirst half. A hard tackle-buck carried the ball over. The Bruin men played very erratic ball, and were clearly outplayed. The brightest spot of the game was the sterling defensive r work of Mesa at full and Bishop at end. Piling up the largest score in any conference game in the 1926 season. Coach Oster ' s fighting cubs handed the Redlands pups a severe 30-6 drubbing despite the absence of several star performers who got into scholastic difficulties following the Occidental debacle. Crashing through to a clean-cut 26-0 victory over the Cal Tech yearlings, the rebuilt peagreen squad fin- ished the 1926 season in the runner-up position in the conference rating. The voung Bruins outplayed ihe Engineers in every depart- ment of the game, and out- fought them as well. Though not crowned champions, they merit a world of credit. Cecil H0LLlNi;SW0RTH A.sst. Freshman Coach S. [176] basketball [178] w When things look darkest, Coaeh C- fMm- _j Caddy Works can always be found ?l smiling, and Caddy imparts this same spirit to the men who play the game under him. With Caddy " the game ' s the thing, " and the winning or losing doesn ' t mean so much. His players play hard to win, but cleanly, and it is history that Coach Works ' teams win and win consistently. Caddy ' s personality is undoubtedly a great factor in the success of his teams. With a cheering word and a pat on the back for the downhearted player, his men without fail give all they have to win for him. Caddy loves the game of basketball and that ' s why he is in it. He is a " playing coach. " He can still step out and cavort around the floor so that the best of his players have great difficulty in keeping up with him. He has had unprecedented success in Southern Confer- ence ranks. Next season his teams play in the Pacific Coast Conference. But Caddy ' s teams have been meet- ing and defeating Coast Conference fives for the past three years, so he is confidently looking forward to another successful season in 1928. SEASON REVIEW Pierce " Caddy " Works Varsity Basketball Coach Although only tying for the Southern Conference championship with the Whittier quintet, the Bruin five completed what was probably the most successful season in U. C. L. A. basketball history when it registered its final victory of the 1926-27 schedule against the Poets. Outstanding in the Bruin quintet ' s season were the double victories over Stanford, the defeat of the strong invading Oregon Aggies from the northwest, and the dramatic come-back against the Whittier Poets in the final contest of the year. The outlook at the start of the season was gloomy. The loss of the stars of the 1925 team by graduation and transfer left Coach Works with but scant veteran material out of which to mould a team to play through the most difficult schedule ever attempted by a Bruin five. Undaunted, Coach Works developed a squad that was unexcelled in team-play and dropped only two regularly-scheduled games. [170] ' , .(i.-f CAPTAIN JAMES ARMSTRONG Captain " Jimmy " Armstrong, who lead the 1927 Bruin Varsity basketball team into a tie with the Whit- tier Poets for the mythical Southern Conference cham- pionship, completed his third year of brilliant playing on the teams of the Blue and Gold when the final whistle gave the Bruins a spectacular victory over the Poets in the last game of the schedule. Armstrong is well known to the sport followers of California as a guard of extraordinary ability, whose aggressiveness, consistency and fight make him a very valuable addition to any team. In the games with the Coast Conference teams, Jimmy proved to all that he was the equal of any player in the stronger circuit, and his absence will be keenly felt when the Bruins enter the senior conference next season. Armstrong, a guard, is a fast, clever dribbler and an accurate shot, and has always been a vital cog in the scoring activities of the Bruin fives. An all-around star on the court, Jimmy will be remembered by his team-mates for his personal qualities of leadership and good sportsmanship, long after his great playing record is dimmed by the passage of time. James Armstrong Varsity Captain NON-CONFERENCE GAMES CALIFORNIA BRUINS 32— OREGON AGGIES 22 Hitting its full stride during the Christmas vacation, the Bruin Varsity quintet met the power- ful Oregon Agricultural College hoopsters on December 29 at the Olympic Auditorium and sent the northern invaders down to a 32-22 defeat. The Bruins won after having held the short end of the score throughout most of the first half. The game was something in the nature of a big upset as the Aggies from Corvallis, Oregon, had one of the strongest teams in the northern hoop league of the Pacific Coast Conference. The game was featured by some exceptionally clever defense play by both teams and it was only the faster offensive play of the Bruins, aided by some timely long shots by Jack Ketchum, which enabled the Blue and Gold squad to annex the long end of the score. A good-sized lead was garnered by O. A. C. before the Bruins were well under way, and near the middle of the first half the locals were on the short end of a 17-7 c:iunt. Rallying desperately, the Bruins scored nine ptjints in quick succession, and at half-time werj leading by a slender two-point margin. The Bruins presented an air-tight defense in the second half and were never headed. Ketchum at forward was the outstanding player of the game. Young, at center also played a high-powered game, as did Baiter at forward. Cap- tain Armstrong and Bunche, at the guard positions, made things difficult for the Aggie forwards. The Bruins dis- played an excellent brand of team- play and worlds of fight, which at times seemed to be- wilder the visiting five. [180] %kfr CAPTAIN-ELECT JACK KETCHUM Assuming the leadership of the Bruin basketball five at one of the most entieal periods in the history of the sport at this institution, Captain-elect Jack Ket- chum will face a man-sized job next season, when the squad of which he will be the leader participates in the Pacific Coast Conference. No other Bruin captain has been faced with the problems and responsibilities that will confront Ketchum during the 1928 playing season. With this situation in mind, the selection of Jack at this time to lead the 1928 quintet, is a striking tes- timonial of the great esteem in which he is held by his team-mates, and the confidence they have that he will prove equal, in the future, to the most trying occasion, just as he has in the past. His two years of spectac- ular Varsity play at forward, and his experience as captain of the freshman five in his first year, fully qualify him for the position of leader of his team mates. Ketchum is a player who gives his best at all times and can always be counted upon to come through m the pinches, when only a point or two is needed for victory. A hard, but clean fighter, and well-liked by his team-mates, Jack should have a great season in 1928. J. CK KlTCHlM Captain-elect CALIFORNIA BRUINS 1 7— UNIVERSITY OF IDAHO 32 Showing a decided reversal of form after their splendid effort against the Oregon Aggie five, the Bruin hoopsters met the University of Idaho team two nights later and went down to a stunning 32-17 defeat in a game marred by much loose playing, which was in striking contrast to the close play of the previous game. Inability to locate the hoop seemed to be the main factor in the defeat of the Bruin quintet. The Bruins were rolling shots all around the " bucket " but were unable to drop them in consistently. A good fast offense and a well-developed floor play by the Vandals contributed considerably to the demise of the home team. The game was quite closely contested during the first ten minutes, hut a strong Vandal rally, aided by several converted free throws, soon gave the northerners a lead which stood at 15-7 at half-time. Starting with a rush in the second period, ths Idaho team quickly ran the score up to 21-10. A brief Bruin rally was quickly and effectively halted, and the Idaho men put on additional steam and were never in danger of being headed. Captain Jimmy Armstrong ' s work was the outstanding feature of the game from the Bruin standpoint. The local " big- scoring guns " were oppres ' sively silent. Armstrong con- tributed four points to the score and in addition, playid a heady game at guard, break- ing up many of the Vandal plays. Williams at forward played a fairly strong game, while Young at center was one of the few Bruins who seemed able to play anywhere near top form. S5?S. [ isi ] James Armstrong Guard THE STANFORD SERIES Meeting the strong Cardinal hoopsters on their home court, on the night of Jan. 3, in the first of a two-game series, the Bruin quintet sent the Stanford Red down to a 21-17 defeat. The entire Blue and Gold five played bang-up basketball and fought the heavier Cards to a standstill. " Pee-Wee " Williams, dmiinutive Bruin forward, was the bright-light of the game with his fast floor-work and accurate shooting. Captain Armstrong and Julius Blum at guards, kept the Stanford forwards well in check throughout the game. Clearly upholding their reputation as one of the outstanding teams on the Pacific Coast, Coach Works ' cagers defeated Stan- ford again, in their second mix of the season, played at the Olympic Auditorium, by a 23-21 count. For the first few minutes of the game, the battle ran nip and tuck. Stanford started the scoring and quickly ran up a six-point lead, but the Bruin five soon evened matters, and forged ahead. The north- erners battled stubbornly for every point, but couldn ' t stop the perfect passing attack of the Blue and Gold, and at half-time the Works-men were on the long end of a 19-10 score. Stanford staged a brilliant come-back in the second half, and at the end of the game a whirlwind attack carried them within a whisker of snatching the victory from the Bruin five. The double victory in the Stanford series gave the Bruins a record of three victories out of four games played with the Cardinals during the last two seasons. PRACTICE TILTS In the opening basketball game of the year, the Varsity quintet hand- ed an all-star Alumni aggregation a 56-26 beating. The powerful Hollywood Athletic Club five defeated the Bruins in their second contest of the season, v. ' hen they walked oif the H. A. C. court with a 36-28 victory. However, Caddy Works did considerable experimenting in this contest, as it was necessary to get a line on some of the new plays and new material. Sam Baiter, a sopho- more, was the sensation of the game for the Bruins, locating the hoop for a total of eleven points, and giving a clever exhibition of floor-work. The play was fast throughout and both squads played good ball for so early in the season. Two complete line-ups were used by the Bruin mentor. In another practice affair. Coach Works took his proteges down to the Pacific Coast Club of Long Beach and received a 28-27 larruping. Inability to hit the hoop accurately cost the Bruin squad the game. J. CK Ki rem Forward C 1.82 ] Jumping into the lead from the start of the game, never thereafter to be headed, the Bruin Varsity basketball team sent the Occidental five down to a 32-17 defeat in the opening con- ference game of the year, played at Occidental, January 7. The game was fast and hard-fought throughout, with many fouls being called on both sides. The play alternated between periods of fast, driving, clever, floor-work, and rough and tumble work. Coach Caddy Works ' outfit displayed an exception;) brand of closely knit team-work, and an accuracy in basket- shooting that completely befuddled the Tigers. A four to six- point margin was enjoyed by the Bruins throughout most of the first half, until a spirited U. C. L. A. scoring rally just before the whistle gave them a ten-point lead, with the score at 20-10. Jumping off to a fast start in the second half. Works ' men ran their total up to 28 while the Bengals were garnering a scant three points. Williams and Armstrong featured this scoring bee with the former sinking two baskets and a free throw, and the latter one basket and a free toss. The Tigers came right back with a pair of shots, but again the Bruins in- creased their lead to ten points when Williams looped one through, and Baiter repeated. Just before the final whistle, Bunche added two more points, bringing the final count to 32-17. Williams, with a total of eleven points, was one of the out- standing players of the game. In addition, the diminutive Bruin star was playing a sterling defensive game by keeping close watch over Solly Mishkin, chief Tiger scoring threat. Captain Jimmy Armstrong and Julius Blum at guard played a big part in breaking up the Occidental oifense. In a game that was in many respects the counterpart of the first encounter, the Bruin cagers defeated the Tigers by a 28-14 count in the second conference hoopmix between the two squads. The game was played in the Hollywood High School gymnasium on the night of Jan. 28. Play was close. Eight minutes elapsed before either team scored a field goal. Occidental had converted three free throws, and the Bruins tagged along behind a two or three-point lead for most of the first half, until a U. C. L. A. rally just before half-time put the Bruins ahead by a 12-9 margin. Off to a flying start in the second period. Coach Works ' s five ran up a 19-9 lead when Armstrong, Baiter and Young all found the hoop, and Ketchum registered a free throw. A minute later. Baiter dribbled down the floor twice for short shots, and Young ran the Bruin total to 24. Two field-goals and a free-throw by Oxy, and one apiece by Baiter and Young for the Blue and Gold, completed the Guaid f Baiter ' s offensive play and Julius Blum ' s great defensive work were the outstanding features of the game. Captain Armstrong at guard played his usual steady game, while Milo Young scored eight points for second high-point honors. Jack Ketchum, the Bruin scoring ace, was closely guarded by Archer of the Tigers, and had difficulty getting loose, but played brilliantly throughout the game. [183] t THE SAN DIEGO SERIES v ' m Coach Caddy Works " Bruin basketball squad ran wild over the San Diego A:;tecs in the initial game of their series, taking the southern squad down by a 31-9 score. The Blue and Gold team jumped off to an early •lead, running up ten points before the Aztecs had counted one. Bush, San Diego captain, made one lone tally from a free throw, and then the local scoring machine got started again, scoring eighteen points to the five which the Aztecs had amassed at half-time. The Bruin mentor used substitutes freely in the second half. Woodruff, Landes and Bunche started and continued the scoring frenzy where their team-mates had left off, running the Bruin total to ?1 by the end of the game. Art Williams was the biggest scoring factor in this affair, ringing up a total of twelve points for high- point man. Jack Ketchum and Captain Armstrong also contributed considerably to the score, while the latter ' s guarding was outstanding. Although not finding their Aztec opponents as easy in the second game as they did in the first set-to, the Bruins managed to administer a 28-19 defeat in their third conference encounter. The first half was hard fought, and though the Bruins quickly forged ahead of the Aztec ' s early two-point lead, the San Diegans stuck tenaciously to the heels of their opponents. A.t the half the score was 14-11 in the Brums ' favor. The second half was a repetition of the first, and the Bruins, with the aid of numerous substitutes, swelled their total to 28. Ketchum, Williams and Young shared scoring honors, and Blum performed in great style at guard. R. Li ' H Blnche Guard CALIFORNIA BRUINS 26— CAL-TECH 17 Arthur Williams Forward Despite the fact that second-string men were played throughout the entire game, Coach Caddy Works ' cage-artists had no difficulty in downing the Cal Tech quintet by a 26-17 count on the Pasadenan ' s court. With the Stanford battle scheduled for the following night, the Bruin mentor saved his men. With Woodruff, Baiter and Landes playing the role of leading scorers, the Bruins ran up a total of 17 points in the " first stanza. The Cal Tech forwards encountered no end of difficulty in filtering through the California guards, Bunche and Leavy, and were able to annex only five points, chiefly via the free-throw route. The Engineers launched a second-half rally which boosted their total to 17, but the Bruin forwards found the hoop for nine points in this period and at no time did the opposing five seriously threaten. While the Bruin offense was somewhat ragged, the defensive play was airtight, and the Engineers had to rely mainly upon long shots. [184] William Woodruff Center It was a case of Jack Ketchum vs. Pomona so far as scoring went in the fifth conference game of the year played at Clare- mont, which the Bruins won by a score of 48-13, for the star U. C. L. A. forward ran hog-wild in this affray, scoring 24 points all by himself. The Bruin five started slowly and were held scoreless by the Sagehens for the first ten minutes of the game. But when they once got started they ran up a lO-to-3 lead and were never headed thereafter. The slashing offense of the Blue and Gold literally tore the Pomona defense to shreds, and at half-time the local squad was resting comfortably on the long end of a 22-9 count. The second half was all U. C, L, A, Ketchum and Milo Young began popping baskets in from all angles, A total of 26 points were scored by the Bruins in this half to the 4 which the Sagehens added to their total. Captain Jimmy Armstrong and Julius Blum at the guard positions, scintillated with some clever defensive work. The U. C. L. A. cagers participated in another " field day " at the expense of Coach " Beefy " Heath ' s Sagehens in the eighth conference game of the year, running up a 42-16 score against the Claremonters in the second game of the series between the two squads. Starting the game with three substitutes in the line-up, the Bruins played a close game with Pomona during the initial moments of the fracas, holding onto a slim lead by a 9-7 score. At this juncture the regulars were rushed into the battle, and they quickly ran the score up to 16-7 at half-time. The Bruins played exceedingly fast ball in the second half and ran away from their less experi- enced opponents. Baiter won high scoring honors with ten digits to his credit, while Ketchum, Williams and Young fol- lowed close behind. Coach Works ' outfit was working like a well-oiled machine and no one player was outstanding. CALIFORNIA BRUINS 43— REDLANDS 25 Playing nip-and-tuck with the Bulldogs for the lead during the greater part of the game, the Bruin cagemen staged a whirl- wind rally in the final moments of the second period, and de- feated the Redlands University quintet by a 43-25 score in the seventh conferertce game of the season. The Bulldogs snatched an early four-point lead before the Bruins got under way, but the score was soon tied. During the remainder of the first frame, the lead see-sawed back and forth between the two teams, with first one and then the other in front. Just before the end of the half Redlands looped two field goals to hold a 1 -13 lead over the Blue and Gold hoop- sters. Both teams engaged in a wild scoring orgy to start the second half, and within seven minutes after the start, a grand total of 23 points had been rung up. With the score standing at 27-23 in favor of the locals, the Redlands five seemed to crack, and the Bruins forged rapidly into the lead, ending up with a score of 4 3 -2 5. Williams was the outstanding offensive player for the Bruins, with fifteen points to his credit. Ketchum, Young, Blum and Captain Armstrong also did stellar work. Sam Salter Forward [185} ' f . THE WHITTIER SERIES In two heart-throhbing, spectacular contests that had thousand of fans fren-ied with excitement throughout, the Bruin cagers split their annual two-game series with the V hittier Poets for the basket- ball title of the Southern Conference, losing the lirst encounter by a 22-31 score, and annexing the second by a 29-23 count. In virtue of the divided series the two teams ended the season in a deadlock for championship honors. The Southern Conference has no ruling in respect to disputed championships and a play-ofF could not be arranged. From the standpoint of the Bruin rooters, the second game pro- vided the greatest thrill. Through having lost the first contest the Bruin squad went into the final game as underdogs in the betting, and were accorded only a fighting chance to win. For the major portion of the game Coach Caddy Works " squad played according to the advance " dope, " and trailed the Poet five by a good-sized margin. But in the last few moments of play a determined, irresistible scoring rally swept the Poet squad off its feet, and a series of spec- tacular long shots gave the Bruins an edge which they maintained until the final whistle. The home team was not so fortunate in the initial encounter, for, although they kept within threatening distance of the leading Poets throughout, they could never manage to rally strongly enough to get out in front of the speedy Whittier men. After Whittier had scored the first two points in the first game, the Bruins came right back and counted three field goals in quick succession, due to the accurate eye of Jack Ketchum. However, the margin was short-lived, for Sucksdorf and Weaver, the sensa- tional Whittier scoring threats, immediately knotted the count at six-all. From this point until a few minutes before the half, the lead see-sawed back and forth between the two evenly- matched fives, when Whittier staged a scoring flurry and went into a 14-9 lead. Whittier fought doggedly to hold their slender lead throughout the second canto. Both teams were playing a closely-knit defensive game and scoring was difficult. Due to the closeness of the defensive play, fouls were frequent and a large number of the points made during the second half Si GiBBS Assistant Varsity Coach came via the free-throw route, player of the game. The game largely resolved itself into a contest between the star Bruin forward and Sucksdorf, with honors evenly divided, the Whittier man amassing four- teen digits. The Bruin of- fensive play was exceedingly ragged in this game. In the second contest Whittier apparently had the game in the bag until the last eight minutes. At half-time the Poets held a comfortable lead of 16-7, and until the be- lated Bruin scoring rally start- ed which swung the score in favor of the Blue and Gold men, the Poets were leading, 20-12. The Bruins were play- ing excellent ball throughout, and putting up a plucky fight, but inability to hit the basket v jas telling heavily. Jack Ketchum, with a fine total of 13 points, was the outstanding [186] Bill Woodruff, who substituted at center for Young, started the fji fireworks with a clean shot from mid-court. In rapid succession , J Armstrong and Baiter followed with one each, bringing the score to 20-18, and consternation reigned in the Whittier camp. Reese, Whittier guard, enabled the rabid Whittierites to breathe more easily by registering a goal from the center-circle, but their respite was extremely short as Baiter and Ketchum replied with a goal apiece, tieing the score at 22-22. Woodruff again came to the fore ; At this juncture and sunk two more long shots, and the Bruins won as they pleased from then on. The game ended with the local five getting stronger every minute, and with the score at 29-23 in the Bruins ' favor. Honors for the evening in scoring for the Bruins were divided among Ketchum, Woodruff and Baiter. Ketchum ran up a total of twelve points while the substitute center made eight. Captain Jim- my Armstrong and Bunche were the big guns on defense for the Bruins. Weaver, the sophomore center, and Captain Denny played great games for Whittier. The loss of the first game of the series to the Poets was the first defeat administered to a Bruin five by a Southern Conference team during the past two seasons. The Bruins were favorites to win the initial contest due to their impressive victories over the leading teams of the Coast, but the Poets had a great team and were under- rated. The real ability and fighting spirit of the Works-coached five manifested itself in the second encounter, however, when the RonnaT Robinson Bruins refused to be downed and staged a remarkable up-hill fight. Senior Manager The Whittier series was the last games in which U. C. L. A. fives will officially participate as members of the Southern Conference. Next season the Blue and Gold five will compete in the stronger Coast Conference loop. The Whittier series also marked the passing of three veteran bas- ketball campaigners from further competition under the colors of the Blue and Gold. Captain Jimmy Armstrong, Julius Blum and Ralph Bunche, all three-year veterans and stellar guards, will be lost to the Bruin five by graduation, and will be sorely missed on next year ' s aggregation. Too much credit cannot be extended to Coach Works and his capable assistant, Si Gibbs. for the splendid record made by the 1927 team. 3 S ' ♦♦: i kmJk j Herrington, Bennett, Dearino.

Perrin ' ' j FRESHMAN BASKETBALL Coming through with a smashing 30-19 victory against the highly-touted Whittier frosh in the final " ame of the 1927 schedule, Coach Wilbur Johns ' freshman basketball team completed the 19 7 season with an excellent record marred only by one defeat in ten games played. Included m their string of victories were two decisions over the powerful Occidental hrst-year men, the first by 20-17, and the second by 30-15. Captained m alternate games by Max Durham, guard, and Ken- neth Piper, forward, who shared the honors of leading the squad, the frosh hit their stride early in the season under the able tute- lage of Coach Johns, and soon developed into a smooth-working combination. Depending for the most part on speed and cleverness, team-work was made the watchword of their play and their short- passing game was almost impossible to break up once they got under way. This style of play did not develop any outstanding stars, but it did teach every man on the squad to handle the ball well and to work with his fellows. Williams, at guard, was one of the best players on the team, not brilliant, but consistent, and his work on the frosh squad augurs well for his possibilities as Varsity material. His running- mate at the other guard position. Captain Durham, also played line ball, especially ' on offensive play. Davis and Captain Piper at the forward positions were valuable men all season, with the former playing hard, steady ball, and the latter pulHng several games out of the fire with his ability to come through in the pinches. Larry Wilde at center was a great defensive and offensive man. Getting off to a fine start in the first game of the season, the frosh walloped the Excelsior high team 41-15 in a rather lopsided contest featured by the basket-shooting of Wilde and Piper, who looped the ' ball from every angle. Williams and Durham, assisted by Griffiths and Smith, who substituted for them part of the game, had little difficulty in halting the Excelsior offense before it could get started. The Bruin cubs held the upper hand all the way and Coach Wilbur Johns every man on the squad had a chance to show his wares. [189] r Captains Di rham and Pipkr Meeting the Occidental kittens in the first of a two-game series. Coach Johns ' team chalked up another win by the nar- row margin of three points, the final score standing at 20-17. As the tide of battle surged back and forth with only a few points separating the teams at any one time, it looked for a while as though the Tigers were going to pull the game out of the fire, but a spurt in the last few minutes of play carried the Bruin youngsters into a three-point lead which they held until the final whistle. The work of Davis and Wilde in garnering three field goals and two free throws at the critical moment of the game turned the tide of battle and salted the game away for the Bruin yearlings. Tangling with the Glendale high hoopsters in the third en- counter, the frosh mowed them down, 82-12, without undue exertion. The whole squad took part in the fray at one time or another, with Wilde and Collins sharing high-point honors. Functioning like the proverbial well-oiled machine, the frosh lowered the colors of the Polytechnic high five, by the score of 23-14. The work of Williams at guard in this fracas left nothing to be desired. Perrin sunk four field goals for high-scoring honors. The next game was with Van ' s All-Stars which the frosh won by a Jl-l " ) score. Wilde was responsible for most of the points with five goals from the floor, while Captain Durham registered four more. Adding insult to injury, the frosh again polished off the Oxy kittens in their second encounter by the decisive ciiunt of 30-15. Starting the game on even terms, both teams battled furiously through most of the first half, with neither gaining any decided advantage. Then shortly before the end of the half Coach Johns ' babes pulled away and ran up a comfortable lead. A new starting line- up was inserted at the beginning of the second half, and this combination further added to the lead. Wilde, at center, was again high-scoring man, ably assisted by Captain Piper. Williams and Dur- ham smothered Manuel and Kussman, the Oxy threats in this fray, and with these men silent, the Oxy babes were quite powerless. The playing in this contest was hard and rough as in the first, which was held in the new Tiger bailiwick, but the weight advantage of the Oxy five was no match for the superior floor-work and accuracy of the Bruin babes. Catching a respite after the hard games with the Eagle Rock hoopsters, the peagreen five took on the South Pasadena high quintet and copped a 48-10 decision. Outweighed and outclassed by the Bruins, the prepmen put up a plucky fight from start to finish. Redlands proved to be the nemesis of the Bruin babes ' hopes for a conference championship. After a desperate battle with the Bulldog pups as a preliminary contest to the Varsity game, played at San Bernardino, the Bruin cubs were forced to Be content with the short end of a 23-15 score. The game was characterized by extreme roughness. Captain Piper was high-scorer, while Durham and Williams played well at the guard positions. But team-play and the usual clever floor-work was noticeably lacking. Flashing an irresistible spurt in the last few minutes of play that carried them well into the lead, Coach Wilbur Johns ' s squad handed the Quaker frosh an artistic 32-10 lacing and closed the season with a well-earned victory. Taking the lead at the start of the game, only to have the Whittier frosh, playing on their home court, even it up at the end of the first period, the Bruin cubs came back strongly in the final half and ran away from the rapidly tiring Quakers. The play was fast and hard every minute, and only the superior team-work and endurance of the Bruins saved the game. Captain Durham and Williams played stellar games at guard and forced the Whittier forwards to resort almost entirely to long shots, which they seldom made. Larry Wilde and Ted Palmer at center both showed to advantage. The Whittier game completed the frosh schedule and proved a fitting climax to a highly suc- cessful season which presages well for the Varsity prospects during th e next few years. Great commendation is due Coach Johns for his efforts with the material available. [190] tennis Ronald Smith, Rod Houser, Captain Al Duff, Westsmith. Bob Laird Roland Smith, Robert Morgan, Manager TENNIS FOREWORD For five consecutive years, Bruin Varsity tennis teams have stalked rough-shod over the other squads in the Southern Conference, and since the iirst year of competition in the southern loop, the championship honors have rested with the Blue and Gold teams. But it ' s a strange worm that won ' t turn, and in the 1927 season, the worm, in the form of the powerful Occidental Tiger team, turned, and ousted the Bruin from the lofty throne. The best the Bruin racquet-wielders could get out of the 1927 race was a strong second place, their only conference defeat coming at the racquets of the Oxy team, but it was only after a terrific struggle that the Blue and Gold players were subdued. They went down to defeat by a 4-to-3 match score, and every point in every set was hotly contested for. Coach Ackerman ' s team played sterling tennis all season, although veteran material was scarce, and the prospects are that the Bruin will be ex- tremely capable of giving a good account of him- self when he competes against the teams in the Coast Conference during the 1928 season.

C. L. A. campus. His affable nature and his reputation for fair- play have won him friends on all sides. Bill is one of the youngest coaches in the South- land, yet none have had greater success than he. His tennis teams have won the respect of every coach on the coast, and have held their own with the strongest. Until the season just passed, they have never failed to win the championship, and with a number of veterans returning next year, the genial coach expects to give the Coast Conference squads plenty to think about. Ackerman works tirelessly with his teams, and it is characteristic of his efforts that the men under his tutelage seldom fail to show marked improvement m their play from season to season. Ackerman is himself a great player and stylist, and has the happy faculty of imparting his knowledge and ability to the men whom he coaches. Good sportsmanship is his by-word, both on and off the playing court, and his proteges reflect his coaching in gratifying manner. William " Bill " Ackerman Varsity Tennis Coacti SEASON REVIEW Entering the last year of Southern Conference competition with a squad composed of three sophomores playing their first year on the Varsity and two veteran lettermen. Coach Ackerman s tennis team played through the 1927 conference season with only one defeat to win second honors_ Coach Ackerman faced a difficult task in rebuilding a team capable of equaling the performances ot the teams of previous seasons. Lead by Captain Al D.uff, the Bruins easily defeated every team in the southern loop, however, with the exception of the strong Occidental squad which took a hard-fought 4-to-3 match from the local team through the brilliant stroking of Norval Craig and Ben Gorchakoft. In the non-conference tournaments, the Bruin players lost to both California and Stanford on ttieir northern trip hut when the Golden Bears came south, Coach Ackerman ' s players held them to a 3-to-3 tie. In a hard-fought return match with the Cards, the Brums again were repulsed by a score of " t-to-l. [193] .a j a, Wl CAPTAIN AL DUFF Al Duff has proven himself to be an able leader, a consistent and often brilliant player, and a captain who has at all times had the interests of his team at heart. Although his team failed to win the champion- ship of the conference for the first time in Bruin ten- nis history, it was certainly through no lack of fight on the part of the Bruin leader or his team-mates. Never has a Bruin team shown more fighting heart than did Captain Duif and his mates against almost dishearten- ing odds in their match with the Occidental Tigers. Unassuming, both on and off the court. Duff has won the respect and praise of all who know him. He has made an enviable record during his two years of Varsity tennis competition, having held down number one position on the Varsity during the past two seasons, and during this time he has seldom met defeat. His game is not spectacular, but he is uncannily steady and very accurate, and his indomitable fighting spirit has earned him many a victory over more experienced op- ponents. Al has been a valuable asset to Bruin tennis, and his loss will be mourned by all tennis lovers. Al Duff Varsity Captain THE CALIFORNIA SERIES As an evidence of the progress of the Bruin tennis Varsity during the 1927 season, the compara- tice scores of the first and second series of matches played with California at Berkeley are quite encouraging. Facing the Golden Bear netmen in a pre-season invasion of the northern courts, the Bruins were defeated, 7-0. Playing the Berkeley squad after the Southern Conference sched- ule was half completed. Coach Ackerman ' s squad held the Bay City men to a 3-3 tie. In the first matches the Bears had everything pretty much their own way. Harrison of Cali- fornia was given a great battle by Houser, that ran to three sets, 7-9, 6-1, 6-4. Shellback of the Bruins put up a stern fight against Burke, but was downed, 6-2, 6-4, while Ron Smith dropped his match to Risso of the Bears, 6-1, 6-3. The Bears defeated Roe Smith and Westsmith and the southern doubles combinations with equal facility. However, the Bruins were seriously handicapped by the forced absence of Captain Duff and Bob Laird, first and second men, on their barnstorming tour. The Bruins staged a brilliant come-back in their return matches with the Bears on the local courts. Bob Laird defeated Risso in a spectacular duel, 7-5, 6-4, and paired with Captain Duff, succeeded in downing the Ber- keley first doubles combination, 10-8, 6-0. Captain Duff lost to Captain Stowe of the Bears in straight sets, 6-4, 6-1, while Houser dropped a close match to Hoogs at 1-6, 8-6, 6-2. Ron Smith also went down by 1-6, 6-0, 6-3. The first doubles play was exceedingly hard-fought, with the lead see-sawing back and forth throughout the first set. But with games at eight-all, the Bruins broke through and won. The sparkling net play of Houser and Ron Smith won the second doubles for the Bruins, 8-6, 6-4. g P-J [194] I CAPTAIN-ELECT ROD HOUSER Known for his unfailing good sportsmanship on the courts and his gentlemanly conduct on the campus, Rod Houser was selected by his team-mates to lead the 1927 Bruin tennis Varsity in its 1928 debut on the courts as a member of the Pacific Coast Conference. With a comparatively young team, but a fair nucleus of experienced players to represent the Blue and Gold next year, there is every indication that Captain-elect Houser will lead a winning group of racquet-wielders. Rod is the second of the Houser household to cap- tain a Bruin tennis team. Fred Houser, his older broth- er, captained the 1925 championship squad. Rod is a worthy successor to his brother. He plays a consistent game, basing most of the strength of his attack on a powerful, flat drive and an aggressive net game. His selection to lead the 1928 Varsity reflects the confidence of his team-mates in his ability to instil fighting spirit in the face of the greatest odds. Houser ' s quiet confidence on the courts, his steadiness in the pinches, and his fighting heart, fully qualify him for this position of honor and responsibility. Rod Houser Captain-elect i THE STANFORD SERIES Meeting the powerful Stanford racquet-wielders on the Palo Alto courts, and without the services of Captain Duff and Bob Laird, first and second men, the Bruin netmen put up a terrific struggle before succumbing to the better stroking of the Cardinals by a 7-0 match score. In the first singles, Houser lost to Cranston Holman, ranking national player, 6-4, 6-4, and his team-mate, Roland Sm ' ith was nosed out by McElvenny of the Cards, 6-2, 4-6, 6-0. Ronald Smith dropped the third singles to Harrington, 6-3, 5-7, 6-4, while Westsmith was out-stroked by Wheatley, 6-2, 6-3. The Cardinals annexed both first and second doubles with consummate ease, the first by 6-2, 6-2, and the second doubles by 6-2, 6-1. In the return match between the two teams on the Bruin courts, the northern invaders further demonstrated their superiority by winning without the services of their star, Holman, by a 6-1 match score. Captain Dufl of the Bruins won the only match for the Blue and Gold when he downed " Tubby " Ogden of the Cards, 6-3, 6-2. Robert Laird, playing second singles, gave McElvenny of the . ' Stanford squad a hard match, but was downed, 6-4, 8-6, and Harrington took the measure of Rod Houser, 6-3, 6-2. Ron Smith lost to Wheatley, 6-3, 6-3, and the Cards also swept the doubles matches. [195] Disputing every point with a tenacity that brought generous applause even from the partisan Occidental root- ing section. Coach Ackerman ' s fighting Varsity racquet wield- crs succumbed to the superior stroking of the Tiger players only after a long and bitterly contested battle, by a score of Even in defeat the Blue and Gold racqueters were champions in their dogged refusal to concede victory to their more experienced opponents until the last point had been played for. Characterized through- out the entire tournament by fast and accurate stroking, the play kept the large gallery in a contin- uous uproar, applauding the brilliancy of shot after shot. In the feature match of the play, Laird and Houser forced GorchakofF and Craig to display a championship brand of tennis before the latter were able to win the contest, 9-7, 6-3. The Bruin duo went into a two-game lead before the Oxy stars warmed to their task. The lead was short-lived, however, and the play see-sawed back and forth until the count stood at seven-all. Here the Tiger players rallied and ran out the set, 9-7. The bullet serve of Gorchakoff gave the Oxy team a great advantage. The second set was as bitterly contested as the first, and the score of 6-3 does not indi- cate the sharp rallies and forcing drives which marked the play. Craig and Gorchakoff worked in splendid harmony and were unpassable at the net. Houser and Laird fought valiantly to the last point. In the first singles, Captain Duff was defeat :d by the remarkable speed and accuracy of the Oxy star was within a hair ' s-breadth of defeating Norval Craig in the second singles. Craig took the match in deuce sets, 8-6 and 7-5, after a bitter struggle. In the third and fourth singles Rod Houser and Ron Smith defeated Lee and Maeno with comparative ease. Houser took an early lead against Lee and was never in danger. Rod used his straight-line drive together with an aggressive net at- tack to great effect. The final score was 6-1, 6-0. Ron Smith had only slightly more difficulty in taking the measure of Maeno, 6-3 and 6-2. At the net. Smith ' s smashing overhead had Maeno jumping all over the court, and it was only the exceptional speed of the little Nipponese player that kept him from being over- whelmed. Battling through three hard sets, Ronald and Roe Smith finally downed the Occidental second doubles combination, 2-6, 8-6, 6-2. In coming back after drop- ping the opening set the two Smiths put up one of the pluckiest exhibitions of the tournament. Forced con- tinually into the back court, the Bruin team won by out-driving and out-lobbing the Oxy men. The Bruin team entered the tournament decided underdogs due to the remarkable records which the two Occidental junior stars, Craig and Gorchakoff, had made in recent tournament play. The determined resistance of captain Duff and his team-mates was a pleasant sur- prise to Bruin tennis lovers. GorchakofF. Duff put up a game battle, but virtually unbeatable. Robert Laird came [196] CALIFORNIA BRUINS 6I 2— POMONA 1 2 Encnuntcnng little opposition in the first play of the 1927 conference season, Coach Ackerman ' s racquet artists handed the Pomona team a clean-cut 6! 2-! 2 shellacing on the Claremont courts, on the afternoon of February 14, before a small group of tennis enthusiasts who braved high winds and rain to watch the play. The Bruins won all the singles matches and the first doubles play, and then split the one point in the sec- ond doubles when the match was called with the score one set up and five-all, due to rain. Captain Al DufF, playing number one, chalked up the first victory for the Blue and Gold with an easy win over Captain Arnold of Pomona, 6-2, 6-4, without un- due exertion. Duff was in his usual good form, and his passing shots mixed with fast cross-court drives kept the Sagehen captain on the defensive throughout. Ar- nold played a great defensive game, but his lack of of- fensive strokes made it impossible for him to win. The most bitterly contested match of the day was fought out between Rod Houser and Lee Mills, and it was not until the last set that Houser rallied and carried himself through to victory with a last-minute net attack. The ultimate score was 6-2, 7-9, 6-0. In the second singles Bob Laird found little trouble in out-stroking Baker, 6-3, 6-2. Playing on a dirt court. Laird uncorked a bewildering variety of cut and stop shots that the Pomona player was unable to cope with. Ron Smith completed the singles matches by walloping Lee Van Zerbe, 6-3, 6-3. Smith played easily and won without exerting himself. This gave the Bruins a clean sweep of the singles play and assured them of victory. However, Houser and Laird won the first doubles and an additional two points in straight sets from Arnold and Mills, 6-2, 8-6. Pn the last few minutes of play the rain which had been falling intermittently all after- noon, turned into a downpour that sent the spectators to Robert Lairu Second Man I THE SAN DIEGO MATCH The scheduled match be- tween the Bruin netmen and the San Diego State racquet- wielders was " rained out. " Due to the heavy seasonal rains the match was necessar- ily postponed on two occa- sions, due to the impossibility of traveling to and from the southern city. The San Diegans were somewhat of an unknown quantity insofar as their Var- sity squad was concerned, but the frosh team was exception- ally strong and annexed the conference banner. Houser forces his adversary into deep back-court [197] . V. )v ' P and Houser settled down to steady down in the first set, order, 6-2. In the second Roe Smith defeated Kary and won as they pleased. CALIFORNIA BRUINS 7— CALIFORNIA TECH Smashing through to an overwhelming victory in the third round of the conference court battles, the undaunted Bruins staged a comeback after their close defeat at the hands of the Tigers, and walloped the Cal-Tech Varsity on the local courts. Though losing the decision the Engineers gained the admiration of the gallery by their sportsmanlike conduct on the courts. Captain Al Duff was " on his game " and won his match with Kary, 6-0, 6-0. Duff was drivmg and chopping accurately, and had the play well in hand from start to finish. In the first singles, Robert Laird ran into a bit of difficulty with Keeley of Cal-Tech, and after annexing the first set 6-4, dropped the second in short order, 2-6. Staging a rally in the second canto, the Bruin star pulled the match out of the fire by winning the deciding set at 6-1. Houser had his drive under fine control and using his net game to great advantage, romped away with his match with Gordon, 6-1, 6-3. Gordon made a determined stand in the second set, but Houser increased his pace and ran out the set with a series of brilliant drives and smashing overheads. Roland Smith was forced to play hard tennis by Larson of Cal-Tech, but the superior stroking of the diminutive Californian pulled him out of difiiculty in a long drawn out match, 7-5, 6-4. After getting away to a very poor start in the first doubles, Laird business and ran out the first set at 9-7. The Bruins couldn ' t seem to but they warmed up in the second and disposed of their opponents in short doubles, the Bruins made a clean sweep of the scoring when Duff and and Ross, 6-1, 6-4. The two Calif ornians encountered little difficulty CALIFORNIA BRUINS 6— WHITTIER Using a team composed for the most part of second-string play- ers. Coach Ackerman ' s net squad defeated the Whittier court-men 6-0, in the fourth conference tournament. Westsmith, number si.x man on the Bruin squad, defeated Picker- ing of Whittier, 6-1, 6-0. The Poet player could not solve the Bruin racqueter ' s high-bounding service and flat drive, and failed to provide much opposition. In the second singles, Captain Duff took the measure of Mills in straight sets, 6-0, 6-0. Duff was chopping and driving to all points of the court and his accuracy paved the way for many clean aces. Roland Smith defeated Tomilson i n the third singles, 6-0, 6-1, without trouble. Smith outsteadied the Poet net- man. In the fourth singles, Ronald Smith added another point to the Bruin total with a win over Pitt, by a 6-0, 6-1 score. Again the Bruin star took the decision without exertion. His superior driving and net game gave him a decided advantage. Richardson and Pearson made it a clean sweep for the Bruins by triumphing over Tomilson and Mills, 6-2, 6-0. The Whittier men were completely outclassed and the local team had no difficulty in winning at will. The two Blue and Gold netmen took to the net and kept the Poet team in deep back court throughout. The Whittier tournament was the last in which a Bruin team will officially participate as a member of the Southern Conference. Coach Ackerman ' s netmen will cross racquets with the members of the Pacific Coast Cnnference in 1928. [198] iN f THE MANAGERIAL STAFF Under the cnpahle direction of Robert Morgan, senior tennis manager, the 1927 managerial staff functioned smoothly and efficiently throughout the entire season and proved an important factor in the success of the team. Handling the multifarious details attendant upon the operation of the Varsity team with neatness and dispatch, Morgan organized and directed a capable staff of assistants, who did everything from serving as linemen to providing transportation for the team trips. The duties of the manager are many and varied. He mu-i arrange all the details for the matches, check the supply ol balls, record all scores, supply towels and drinking water at matches, and provide for linemen and umpires. A capable man- ager will contribute materially to the effectiveness and success of the team upon the courts, and Bob Morgan was such a manager, Morgan was qualified for his job by an unusually varied experience on the managerial staffs of several sports. Football for three years, baseball for two years, and tennis for two years gave him a familiarity with the problems incident to Roland Smith the handling of teams that stood him in good stead when he Fihh Man assumed control of the tennis squad. Assisting Morgan in his work this year were Bob Snyder and Bill Ball, junior managers; Hal Ferguson, Gene Anderson, Ben Levine and Gaillard Wood, sopho- mores; and Marsh Sewell and Al Morgan, freshmen. These men all worked hard and faithfully in the interest of the tennis squad, and deserve much praise for their unselfish service. FRESHMAN TENNIS Tieing for second place with the strong Occidental team in the first year men ' s conference tennis standings, the Bruin frosh completed a fairly successful season with two team victories and one de- feat. The San Diego State yearlings won the championship. Though forced to change the line-up on two occasions due to first men dropping from the rolls. Coach Bill Ackerman developed a very repre- sentative squad by the end of the schedule. Struble, Lindsey, Bradley, Lathrop, Jue and Williams were the players earning numerals dur- ing the season. With the loss of two of this sea- " ion ' s Varsity players through gradua- tion, the presence of these new men will be a welcome addition to the 1928 squad. Struble, Lindsey and Bradley, though a bit inexperienced, have given promise of developing into very ca- pable players with more tournament competition. Andy Jue has a well- loundcd game, while Williams and Ldthrop have shown great progress. Facing the usual difficulty of work- ing with unknown quantities. Coach Ackerman started the 1927 season with the peagreeners by scheduling heavy practices during the first few weeks in an effort to get a line on the individual abilities of each player. Playing with R. Morgan. Bali.. Snyder, A. Morgan. Woods, Ferguson Sewall, Anderson [199] JuE, Williams, Lightfoot, Lathrop, Lindsey, Ackerman Papson, Young. Bradley, Struble the Varsity in daily practices gave them the advantage of stiff competition, and by the time of the initial conference contests, the yearlings were showing considerable class. Clashing with the fast team from Pomona, the Bruin babes handed the Sagechicks a decisive 5-2 licking m the first encounter of the 1927 season. The Bruin cubs were clearly superior in every de- partm°ent of the game, but the Claremont youngsters fought doggedly for every point, and annexed two singles matches. The Sagehens took the first singles when Bradley lost to Bent, 6-2, 6-3, due to the inaccuracy of the Bruin player. St ruble of the Brum squad took his match with White by a score of 6-0 6-2, and in one of the best played matches of the tournament, Lindsey of the Blue and Gold won a brilliant 9-7, 6-4 victory over his opponent. Potter of Pomona defeated WilHams of the Bruins, 6-3, 6-2, and that ended the tallying for the Sagechicks. Both the doubles matches went to the cubs. Struble and Lindsey were pushed to the limit to win the first doubles from Bent and Potter of Pomona at 9-7, 5-7, 8-6. Coming from behind after getting oft ' to a poor start, the Bruin duo won the first set after a ' scintillating duel at the net. However, the Pomona team came back strong to win the sec- ond set and square the match, and the third and deciding set was anybody ' s until Struble and Lindsey cut loose with a desperate driving attack and ran out the set at 8-6. Jue and Lathrop took the second doubles with ease. Running into a bit of tough opposition from the strong Oxy frosh, the Bruin cubs were defeated 6-1 in the second conference clash of the season. Occidental presented a well-rounded team and quite outclassed the local squad. Kussman was the star of the Tiger team, winning his own singles match and, pairing with Robinson in the first doubles, also chalked up another win for his team. Kussman is well-known among the junior players of the Southland where he has been prominent in junior tour- naments for the past few years. Lindsey was the only Bruin performer to annex a victory. He triumphed over Sheffield of Oxy in straight sets, 6-3, 6-2, with hard and accurate stroking. Kussman easily defeated Williams of the Bruins in the first singles, 6-0, 6-2. The Oxy star was using a powerful service to great effect, and though Williams played fine tennis all the way, he could not cope with the superior all-around game of the Orange and Black flash. Bradley and Struble both dropped their matches, the first by 6-3, 6-3, and the second, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4. The doubles matches both went to the Tiger kittens by decisive scores. The Bruin babes closed the conference season with a decisive victory over the Cal-Tech frosh by a 5-2 match score. Struble defeated Thayer of the Engineers, 6-0, 6-3; Bradley won over Long, 6-1, 6-3 and Lindsey defeated Strong 6-2, 6-1. Williams dropped the only singles match for the Bruins when he bowed to Kubow of the Technicians in a close match, 7-5, 9-7. The doubles were split with Bradley and Struble taking the first doubles over Strong and Long, by 6-2, 3-6, 6-3: and Kubow and Thayer of Cal-Tech defeating Lindsey and Williams, 6-3, 6-3. .[200} I r ' iSrack ;v Dennfy loHNsoN.

Gill, Clark TRACK FOREWORD To all outward appearances. Coach Harry Trotter, who guides the Brum track destiny, started the 1927 season with the strongest track and field squad in the history of the University. With sev- eral individual stars and a wealth of second and third place prospects, the outlook was quite promising. The high hurdles, pole vault and quarter mile were the only events in which no men were returning. Captain Terry, Heidenreich and Jackson in the sprints, Schmidt in the half -mile. Miller in the mile and Waite in the two-mile seemed good enough to garner points in every meet. Moreover, Parker and Roessler in the hammer, Peterson in the shot, Graham in the broad jump, Drummond in the discus. Smith in the javelin, and Keefer and Huber in the high jump were the class of the Bruins on the field. However, the usual two hoodoos which have djgged the steps of the genial Bruin mentor ever since he first took over the track duties, got in their " licks " before the season even got under way, and he was confronted with the problem of building an almost entirely new team, due to depletions in the ranks of the regulars via the faculty axe and transfers. But Coach Trotter was not discouraged. Faced with this severe setback at the very start of the season. Trotter went at his work with more de- termination than ever, but with the same old genial smile and handshake for everyone. Moreover, he met with eminent success. He developed a number of men who were coming along strongly at the end of the season, and will be heard from in future seasons.

The Bruin track destinies are in the hands of the best-liked and one of the most capable coaches on the campus, and if it were humanly possible for a championship to be won with the avail- able material, then Coach Trotter would be the man to do the deed. Always genial, always encouraging to the newcom- er, and a persistent worker, " Harry " has won the ad- miration and respect of every track coach and fan in the Southland. Met by disappointment galore at every turn, the great Bruin mentor has never yet thrown up his hands in disgust, but has kept plugging along, de- veloping track stars out of green material, inspiring his men to win the reputation of the hardest but cleanest fighters in the south — that is " Harry. " When his teams take the field they give everything they have to win, and his " surprise " entries often defeat more experienced and better-known contenders. The genial coach has ever had a woeful lack of material with which to work but he has consistently de- veloped well-rounded teams which never fail to be strong contenders for championship honors, and are feared by every team in the conference. It is the wonderful per- sonality which is Trotter ' s, coupled with his undoubted ability as a coach, which makes it possible for him to achieve such a reputation though beset by so many obstacles. SEASON REVIEW The first conference meet was dropped to the Pomona Sagehens by the score of 96! 2 to iV z- In the second meet, the Bruins lost to the traditional foe, the Oxy Tiger, by the margin of victory in the relay. The following week, the Bruins dropped another meet to the Cal-Tech squad by the same margin, and the need for another good quarter-miler became desperate. In the final dual meet, the Bruins annexed a meet from the combined forces of Redlands and Whittier by a good margin. In the Southern California Intercollegiate Conference meet, the Blue and Gold trackmen took fourth place honors. Coach Harrv Trotter [203] t Guy Harris Assistant Track Coach Coach Trotter " ? Bruins were no match for their early season meet with the Ccioference championship Pomona track squad. The Sagehens were smarting from the defeat which the Bruins had administered in the 1926 season and were poirted for the match with the Blue and Gold. Coach Bob Strehl sent his men into the meet to " chew up " all the Bruin meat m sight, and the Pomona tracksters succeeded fairly well. The Bruin squad was woefully weak, having but recently been the victim of several ineligibilities, and was able to score but three lirst places against the well-balanced Pomona outfit. Si Miller was high-point man for the Bruins with a first place in the mile run, and a third in the two-mile jaunt. Si ran a fine race to win the mile, going into the lead early in the second lap, and was never threatened. Captain Terry was nosed out of a first place in the century dash by Pinney of Pomona. Hezmalhalch of Pomona beat out Parker of the Bruins with a heave of 138 feet, 10 inches. The Pomona timber- toppers starred, making a clean sweep of the high barriers, and French and Maxwell of the Sage- hens leading Captain Terry to the tape in the lows. Peterson took second to Badham of the Pomona team in the shot-put. The havoc which the faculty axe had played with the Bruin track hopes was painfuly manifested in the auarter-mile as there was no one left on the Bruin squad to prevent Rew and his team-mates Lm Pomona " rom scoring a clean-sweep in the slow time of 52 5. Bell of Pomona tied the Con er ence record of 6 feet iVi inches in the high jump, while the two Bruin stars, Keefer and Huber trailed in the order named. Carleton Waite the diminutive Bruin two-miler, set a new school record in his favorite event when he ran the eight-lap grind m 10 minutes, 5 seconds. This broke the previous record of 10 rnin- utes 8 seconds, set by Pearcy in 1926. Waite ran his first two laps m slov. time, but in the third he stepped out and was leading the field by over a hundred yards at the tape However, this new record was short-hved for the speedy Bruin bettered it by severa seconds in almost every race he ran dur- ing the remainder of the schedule. Si Miller ran a good third to Rentchler of Pomona. George Keefer of the Bruins furnished the big surprise of the day. Ineligibilities had left Coach Trotter virtually without an entry in the pole event. The lanky Bruin high- jumper volunteered his services, and vaulting for the first time in his life, cleared 1 1 feet to annex third place. Kjeld Schmidt, star Bruin middle distance runner, started the season with a victory over Corwin of Pomona in the half-mile. It was the first defeat suffered by the Pomona runner in two seasons. Schmidt trailed the field dur- ing the first lap, but ran his second as though he were running the quarter. He drew abreast of Corwin some two hundred yards from the tape and they sprinted neck and neck to within a few yards of the finish when the Sagehen runner cracked, and Schmidt broke the tape a good yard or more in the lead. [204] French of the Pomona squad who had taken a first in the broad jump earlier in the meet, came back and won the broad jump, but was given some very close competition by Graham and Hoye of the Bruins. Hall of Pomona got out one good heave, which the Bruin discus men could not better, and Tommy Drummond and Peterson of the Blue and Gold team were forced to be content with second and third place honors respec- tively. Williams of Pomona annexed the spear-throwing event with a throw of 177 feet, 11 inches. Dave Smith and Franklin Frymier of the Bruins captured second and third place honors, but neither could best the Sagehen thrower ' s mark. The Sagehen sprinters came back with another clean sweep in the furlong. The winning time in the longer dash event was 22: " , which was fairly fast time for so early in the season. The relay was a walkaway for Pomona, the anchor man winning as he pleased, a good seventy-live yards ahead of the last Bruin runner. Captain Terry and the Sagehen Leader, Steve Turner, Shake Hands The score of 96 2 to 4 31 2 was not at all indicative of the fighting spirit shown by the losing Bruins. There was no loafing in any of the events, and this early season setback made the men work harder in preparation for the Occidental meet which was to come a week later. The Sagehen meet proved to all concerned that the Bruins were far from being a strong squad The early season depletions had worked havoc with the Bruin mentor ' s prospects, and he was forced to go about the task of building up a squad out of inexperienced men. However, all of his men were pulling together, and though experience and ability were lacking, fighting spirit was manifested by every member of the squad, and the Bruin track fans had confidence that the Blue and Gold tracksters would develop and give the other conference squads a battle for honors. This fine spirit which was manifested by both the fans and rooters was well justified, as subsequent meets proved Never had a Bruin team shown such remarkable improvement as did the Bruin tracksters m the Oxy meet the week following the Pomona debacle. The Blue and Gold team had within this short period been transformed into the hardest-fighting team in the Southland, and one of the hardest to defeat. Men who had never before been heard of won recognition for their prowess on the track. Only the lack of sufficient material with which to build a class-A relay team pre- vented the Bruins from winning the remainder of their dual meets. Too much credit cannot be be- stowed upon Coach Trotter and his assistant Guy Harris for their almost phenomenal success in developing Bruin trackmen. With two such fight- ing coaches, and led by the hard but clean fighting Captain Terry, the Si M.LLiR Cops the Mile Against Pomona Bruins made n impressive record. [205] I Kjl:LI SCHMIIlT LlMlS OxY Ql AKTIRMILIR T(l Till TaPI CALIFORNIA BRUINS 66 - OCCIDENTAL 73 In what was probably the biggest upset of the year, Coach Harry Trotter ' s Bruins came within three yards of defeating the Occidental Tigers the week following the Pomona meet. The three yards separating Ward Schweizer, the Occidental anchor man in the relay, and Kjeld Schmidt, running number four for the Bruins, was all that saved victory for the Tigers. The Tigers were almost a two- man team. Tanner, with four first places, and Webb with two firsts, two seconds and one third, scored more points than the rest of the team together. Bill Roessler and Frank Parker weren ' t up to top form, and Webb of Oxy was able to win the ham- mer event with a puny heave of HI feet, 8 inches. In the shot-put, Webb and Rozelle of Oxy, tossed the little lead pel- let with great abandon, forcing Peterson, Bruin weightman into third place. However, Tommy Drummond saved the day to some measure in the weight events, by spin- ning the discus out 127 feet, 2 inches, to win over Roselle and Nash of Oxy in the discus. Foxy Joe Pipal, Oxy mentor, was saving hi. ace, Bill Scoval, for the half-mile in order to de- feat Schmidt, the Bruin runner, and Si Miller won C.

Riddick of the Bruins gave Mullard of Oxy a close race but was nosed out of second place by inches. Carlton Waite and Si Miller easily outdistanced Imler of Oxy in the two-mile. Waite stepped out into the lead early in the race and finished 100 yards ahead of Imler to set a new University record of 9:54:1. Ruth, the Occidental sprinter, beat out Captain Terry and Heidenreich of the Blue and Gold in the century dash. Terry was set back at the start and ran a pretty race to take a good second. How- ever, the Bruin dash stars won sweet revenge over the Tigers when they came back with a vengeance in the furlong and finished one two over Nash of Oxy. The Oxy dash man had been doped to win this event and the feat of the two Bruin runners was a pleasant surprise. Coach Trotter sprung the biggest surprise of the day when he entered Kjeld Schmidt in the quar- ter mile event instead of the half. It was the Bruin- runner ' s first competitive quarter race. The shock proved too much for Ward Schweizer, the Oxy artist, who was beaten by four inches in the good time of 51 flat. Perrin took a close third. Tanner of Oxy oopped the high jump at 6 feet 1 inch, with three Californians, Keefer, Huber and Gill in a triple tie for second. George Keefer, improving steadily in the pole- vault, cleared 1 1 feet 6 inches, to beat out Brier and Jones of Oxy. Clark, Bruin dark-horse in the half-mile, trailed Scoval all the way in a 1 : 58:2 race, the fastest ever run on the Moore field oval. This was Clark ' s second half-mile race. Frymier and Smith put the meet away up in the air when they placed one two in the javelin throw, and the final score hinged upon the relay. However, the Oxy combination with both Scoval and Schweizer in the line-up, was too powerful for the Bruin team of Clark, Taft, Perrin and Schmidt, and the Tigers took the meet. Thomas Drummond [207] After Getting Off to a Bad Start Captain Johnny Terry Comes Within an Ace of Heading Ruth of Oxy in the Hundred " An ideal captain — a willing worker, self-sacrificins,. a scholar and a man who always gave all that he had — such is Captain Terry. It is indeed unfortunate to lose a man of such high caliber. " ' - ' Coach Harry Trotter. Steady, reliable and always with a cheering word for his men. Captain " Johnny " Terry leaves behind him an en- viable reputation as a true sportsman and a real Californian. He is known as a good winner and a good loser; a man who was respected and admired by friends and opponents alike. Paramount in his mind at all times was the welfare and success of his team and his University. He was a source of constant inspiration to his team-mates. With a quiet confidence, unassuming, and a lion-heart, Johnny was indeed an " ideal " captain, and as such he will be long remembered. Captain Terry competed under the colors of the Blue and Gold for the past two years, coming to the Bruin insti- tution as a transfer from Pomona. In his first year of com- petition under Coach Trotter he did exceptionally well as a hurdler, and quickly won the friendship and admiration of his team-mates. In the 1927 season, he continued to star in the low-barrier events, but due to the exceeding scarcity of sprint material, the doughty Bruin leader was also entered in the dash events. Here he proved to be an even greater star than in his former favorite event, and with one or two exceptions had no peer in the conference. Captain Terry will be sorely missed on Bruin track teams of the future. [208] The Bruin Leader Turned the Tables on His Tiger Rival in the Furlong, However, Breaking the Tape and Tying the School Record for the Distance " Captain-elect George Keefer will he another of our excellent captains. He is not only a great natural athlete, but the highest type of competitor. Keefer will, I am sure, he a great leader and an inspiration to his men. " ' ' - Coach Trotter. One of the outstanding athletes of the Southern CaHfor- nia Intercollegiate Conference, George Keefer was the ideal choice as leader of the first U. C. L. A. track team to offi- cially compete in the Pacific Coast Conference. Always dependable for points when the going became rough and points were needed most, Captain-elect Keefer early came to be recognized as the most valuable man on the squad. His favorite event is the high jump, in which he has excelled in Southern Conference and A. A. U. meets for the past two seasons. However, when injuries put his team hard against it for a pole-vaulter, the plucky Brum jumper essayed the pole event with astounding success. His first effort at the higher climb was in the Pomona meet, and by the close of the season he was vaulting well over the twelve- foot mark. In the All-Conference meet Keefer was the Bruin high-point man with a tie for first in the high j ump and a second in the pole-vault. Keefer is well-liked by his team-mates, both for his ability and his unostentatiousness, and great things may well be expected of him during the 1928 season. jCTl! i ■ [209] CALIFORNIA BRUINS 66 - CALIFORNIA TECH 74 In another one of those heart-breaking, last-minute, relay-deciding finishes, the track team of the California Institute of Technology defeated the Bruin squad by a score of 74-66. It was the fourth consecutive year in which the relay was the deciding factor in meets between the Engineers and the Bruins. Coach Trotter would have had one of the strongest teams in the Southern Conference dur- ing the 1927 season had one more good quarter-miler been available. As conditions were, the Bruin mentor had to mould a relay team out of half-milers and sprinters. There was one upset of note in the Cal-Tech meet, when Meserve of the Engineers took a sur- prise victory in the quarter-mile, in the slow time of 51:6. Perrin, who was doped to win the event with ease, sprained his ankle on the first turn and was forced to drop out. Baker, a Bruin novice who had been showing sensational improvement right along, ran a pretty race to take a close second. Schultz and Darling, the Tech sprinting aces ran one-two in the short dash, and Jackson of the Blue and Gold pulled up ahead of Captain Terry to win third. The Cal-Tech sprinters also excelled in the furlong. Murray Schultz and his little skull cap coasted in for an easy first, closely followed by his team-mates. Darling and Coulter. Si Miller and Carleton Waite, the long and the short of the Bruin distance men, came tripping merrily down the track hand in hand to tie for first in the mile run. They were over fifty yards in advance of the first Cal-Tech runner. Waite came back later in the day to run another of his sensational two-mile races to win in the good tmie of 9:56:6. He led Shields of Cal-Tech by over 200 yards at the tape. Woodmansce of the Bruins took an easy third. California scored a clean sweep in the half- mile. Schmidt, Clark and Cutler easily out- distanced the best Tech contestant. Clark and Schmidt injected a bit of humor into the pro- ceedings by fondly intertwining their respective Louis Hliber arms about each other ' s necks about ten yards I [210] from the finish, and jogging in to tie for first in perfect nonchalance. Captain Terry ran an excellent race to win the low hurdles event from Combs of Tech. The Bruin captain took the lead from the very start and was never seriously threatened thereafter. Bert LaBucherie stepped high, wide and also handsome to annex third place. The visitors gained some solace in the high barriers, however, by sweeping all three places. The Bruin high-jumping trio, Keefer, Huber and Gill were in fine fettle in their pet event. The Blue and Gold stars contented themselves with a triple tie for first-place honors, after hav- ing thoroughly out-jumped the Tech-men. Keefer also won first honors in the pole-vault. The Bruin strong-men showed to good ad- vantage in the weight events. In the platter- heaving event, Tommy Drummond and Stone- man proved too hefty for the Tech discus man, Sturgess, and eight points were added to the Bruin total. But in the shot-put, Hoover and Joujon-Roche of Cal-Tech shoved the iron pellet out some forty feet to best Hoye of California. Likewise, Nickel of the Technicians won the decision over Parker of California in the hammer-throw. The Engineers boasted the two best javelin throwers in the Southland and they succeeded in out- tossing Dave Smith of the Bruins to take first and second. Grayson Graham, Bruin broad-jumper, out-jumped Jones of the Engineers with a leap of 21 feet 6 inches. Hoye of the Californians placed a close third.

MlI.1 SllLL I ' . i " l 11 (iHl Was MANihtSTED in the Javelin Throw [211] ■« Waitf. and Miller Cop IN THE Tech Mile struggle depended upon the outcome of the relay. With all events over but the baton-passing event, the score read: Bruins 66, Tech 69. Excitement wa s at fever pitch as the relay teams of the two squads were known to be about equal in ability. In the first lap, Clark, star Bruin half-miler, and Lynn of Tech battled neck and neck around the turn with Clark winning the pole. Clark pulled away near the finish and gave Taft of the Bruins a good yard ' s lead. However, Gramatzsky of the Engineers proved to be a strong finisher and after having been headed for three- fourths of the distance, burst forth with a terrific sprint, passed the doughty little Bruin sprinter and gave Dar- ling, his team-mate, a seven-yard advantage over Baker, third California man. Baker ran a courageous race and gained considerable ground in the first part of the race, only to tie up in the last twenty yards. Schmidt, Bruin anchor man, found himself some fifteen yards to the rear of Meserve, when he received the baton from Baker, but set out at a terrific pace after the flying heels of the Engineer. Schmidt ran a beautiful race and cut down the lead of the Tech man to a considerable extent, but the assignment was too great, and he finished some five yards behind Meserve. Coach Trotter sufi ered another of his unlucky breaks in this meet when Perrin turned his ankle. Had Perrin been in condition to run a fast quarter in the relay, the Bruins would have had a fine chance to garner the necessary five points for victory. However, the Bruin flyer was quite seriously disabled, and was out of competition for the remainder of the season. As in the past meets, the Bruins fought hard to win, contesting hotly for every point, but the breaks were against them. Bruin fans were encouraged by the great improvement in many of the new men, and the fact that the foundations for a strong team in 1928 were being carefully built. The thrilling relay competitions between the Bruins and the Engineers have come to be almost a tradition. Invariably, from season to season, the outcome of the track duels between the Pasadena and Los Angeles institutions hinges upon the winning of the relay. Unfortunately for the success of Bruin track teams, the Blue and Gold baton-passers have never yet been able to defeat the Technicians in duel meet competitions, although the feat was accomplished in the All-Conference meet this season. With score tied and the meet at stake the spectators sit breathless with excitement that rivals that of the tensest moment of a gridiron battle. Everyone is standing, necks craning and eyes straining to see the start of the race. The gun is shot, two lean run- ners streak forth, neck and neck, fighting for the pole position at the first turn. With- out fail the Bruin runner gets that coveted position, and usually gives his second run- ner a substantial lead. But just as invari- ably the Cal-Tech runners somehow, some- ' ' where along the line, make up that lead and then come and nose out the Bruin anchor man to " sew up " the meet. Alex Gill [212] - Tm. Ri I ' l ANi.s 4411 Pk ' jn ' iiui ' A Real Thrill TRACK MANAGERIAL STAFF Under the highly capable leader- ship of Jack Merkley, senior manager, the 1927 track staff rendered excellent service to Coach Trotter and his track- men. Due to the efficient effort of Merkley and his crew, the numerous meets on Moore field were run off with- out a hitch. Due to the necessity of keeping the track in good condition, and the multi- tude of detailed duties connected with the managerial end of the cinderpath sport, Merkley ' s staff had no end of hard work throughout the season. But with never a grumble, the work was al- ways done and done well. Merkley was assisted by the fol- lowing: Junior managers, Joe Powers, Don Lyons; Sophomores: Finklestine, Wasson, Wark, Hare, Hammond and Hansen. CONFERENCE ALL-STARS - STANFORD MEET The Southern Conference All-Stars met and were defeated by the Stanford Cardmals m a meet held on the northern track and field by a score of 96-3 5. The day of the meet found the weather very cold with the skies overcast. At noon it started raining, and continued intermittently throughout the afternoon. The rain made the track and field very slippery, with footing msecure, and the Southern- ers were considerably handicapped by the strange conditions. George Keefer of the Bruin squad jumped into a triple tie for second in the high jump and a triple tie for third in the pole-vault. The take-off for both the high jump and pole-vault was impossible, and the rain made it difficult to take good hold of the pole. Carleton Waite lost a heart-breaking two-mile race to Ranney of Stanford in 9:56:3, which was exceptional time in view of the weather conditions and the condition of the track. Waite led to within fifty yards of the finish when the Stanford runner staged a surprise sprint and nosed the Bruin out by a hair ' s ' breadth. Schmidt justified the coaches ' decision to take him along by run- ning the best half-mile of his career, leading the Stanford stars until the home stretch, where McKinnon and Clum of the Cards barely nosed him out, to win in 1 : 58:2. Drummond and Riddick of the Bruin squad strove valiantly but were slightly outclassed in their events. The conference team was con- siderably weakened by the absence of several stars who were unable to make the trip.

No exceptional marks were made, and the competition was mainly with one-man teams. Without the services of Captain Bruce the Redlands team would have been an exceedingly impotent one, and Pendleton, the Whittier sprint ace, scored 14 of his team ' s 17 1 3 points. Early in the day the meet looked rather dark for the Bruins, but the points began to roll in later on in the day and the meet was safely on ice before the relay was run. In the first event of the day, Ford of Redlands flicked the hammer out 132 feet 5 inches to win from Roessler and Parker of California. Pendleton, Whittier flash, could not confine himself to the dashes, so tried his hand at hurling the discus. However, Drummond and Stoneman of the Bruins did not seem to take kindly to the idea of a sprinter in their favorite event, and so proceeded to wipe up on the intruder, finishing first and second. But Pendleton was not to be denied, and came back strong to win the shot-put with a mighty heave which outdid anything that Peterson and Stone- man, Bruin entries, could do, and the latter finished second and third, respectively. Dave Smith and Frymier had things all their own wa ' in the javelin, and accounted for eight digits between them. Si Miller, Bruin star miler, had pulled a muscle in the Cal Tech meet which put him on the shelf for the remainder of the season. Carleton Waite, his team-mate and stellar eight-lap runner, ran the mile but was outdistanced by Dotts of Redlands in a torrid finish. The time was 4:36:4. How- ever, Waite reversed the decision on " Polka " Dotts, the Red- lands entry in the two-mile grind, winning in 9:57:6. It marked the third consecutive time in as many weeks that Waite had run the distance under ten minutes. - - - But Finishes Well in THE Lead [214] - r. I I Kjeld Schmidt and Bob Baker outfoxed Fox of Redlands to finish one-two in the 440. Baker took the lead at the start, Fox drop- ping in right behind him. Schmidt quickly pulled up alongside Fox and pre- vented him from passing Baker. Coming around the curve into the home stretch Baker swung a trifle wide and Fox took advantage of the opportu- nity to step into the lead But Schmidt dug right in and spurted by Fox to win. Baker also speeded up and passed the Red- lands man at the tape to take second. The time was 51 flat. In a Torrid Finish WALTER CLARK. Bruin Half-miler, Lusts to ,, ,, T, ■ ■ Curtis of Redlands Pendleton, Whittier flash, ran a ten-flat cen- tury. He was forced to step fast to best Captain Terry and Heidenreich of the Bruins, who were right on his heels all the way. Pendleton also annexed the furlong. In the pole-vault, Keefer of the Bruins won a tie with Wilson of Redlands. Long beat out all other aspirants for a third. Keefer and Gill tied for first in the high jump, but the best the third of the Bruin jumping triumvirate — Huber, could do was a triple tie for third with Bruce of Redlands and Hunnicut of Whittier. Bruce, Redlands star athlete, was not content with firsts in both of the hurdle events, so he outjumped both Hoye and Graham of California in the broad-jump. ; Bert LaBrucherie of the Bruins gave Bruce of Redlands a great battle in the low hurdles, but the Redlands man was too strong for the Bruin and nosed him out in the last two flights. Alex Gill gave California its only point all season in the high hurdles when he placed third to Bruce and Sornesen, both of Redlands. The relay marked the first victory of the season for the Bruin four-lap team. It was a fight all the way, with Clark losing five yards in the first lap, Pernn making up three of them in the second, and Baker almost pulling up even at the end of the third lap. Schmidt, Bruin anchor man, outsmarted the Redlands runner, allowing him to run ahead as a wind-break on the back stretch. However the Bruin sprinted ahead on the last curve and won as he pleased. The final score was Bruins 79 L 3, Redlands 43 1 3, and Whit- tier 17 1 3. No exception marks were made, and except in a few cases the competition was not keen. This meet marked the last in which the Bruins will meet South- ern Conference teams in dual or triangular affairs as official members of the Conference. The 1928 team will compete as a member of the Pacific Coast Conference. Although never having won a confer- ence championship, the Bruin teams under the skillful guidance of Coach Trotter, have always given a good account of themselves, and It is expected that within a very short span of years, the Bruin squads will be capable of winning consistently from the other Coast Confer- ence teams. [315] Waite Takes the Twu-mile in Conference Meet THE ALL-CONFERENCE MEET Pomona College scored a grand total of 51 J 2 points to walk away with the annual Southern California Con- ference track and field championship. They were al- ready champions of the conference by virtue of having passed through the dual-meet season without defeat, but their All-Conference victory further entrenched them as the " class " of the conference. Occidental College took second place with 36 points. A merry battle for third-place honors was staged by the California Bruins and the Cal-Tech Engineers, the lat- ter finally winning out with 26 ' 2 points, and the Bruins trailing with 25. San Diego, Redlands, Whittier and La Verne followed in the order named. Captain-elect George Keefer was the star performer for the Bruins with a tie for first in the high-jump and a second place in the pole-vault. Waite ran under ten minutes as usual to win the two-mile event. Had the diminutive Bruin star been given a little competition by anyone in this event, it is almost certain that he would have established a new conference record. Tom Drummond, Bruin discus thrower, proved that he was the best in the conference by winning this event with a throw of 128 feet 3 inches. Gordon Huber also got his finger into the championship pie by tying for third in the high-jump. Art White, stellar Bruin pole-vaulter who had unfortunately broken a bone in his ankle early in the season and had been kept out of competition until the All-Conference aifair, did some fine despite his long lay-off, and vaulted into a five-cornered tie for third place honors. The Bruin relay team composed of Perrin, Ea- ton, Baker and Schmidt, got a measure of revenge when they beat out the Cal-Tech baton-passers for fourth place in the relay competition. The big surprise of the meet was furnished by two hitherto almost un- heard of Bruin runners, Clark and Riddick. The two plucky Bruins had been coming along slowly all season, improving with each meet, but no one had conceded either of them much chance to place in the " big " meet of the sea- son. Scoval of Oxy was the favorite, but Clark made the Tiger star extend Arthur White himself to the limit to ork [216] win, and the Bruin came in for a strong second, closely followed hy his team-mate. Riddick. Captain John Terry and Kjeld Schmidt failed to place in their favorite events, although both were con- ceded places in the pre-meet predictions. The Bruin captain wasn ' t at top form in the barrier event, and was outclassed in the dashes by Schult2; of Cal-Tech and Pendleton of Whittier. Schmidt got off to a poor start in the quarter-mile and was virtually smothered in the wild mob fighting around the first turn. However, the Bruin runner fought doggedly and was coming up strong from a fourth place position at the finish. The Bruin middle-distance star had been the favorite to win before the race. A rather strange series of coincidences in the All- Conference competition have occurred during the past two years. Captain-elect Keefer tied for first honors in the high-jump both years, while his team-mate, Huber, tied for third in the same event both this year and last. For the last three years the Bruin relay teams have placed fourth, and the team has won fourth place in the meet. Kjeld Schmidt has been the favorite to win his races for two years, and has failed to place due to unfortunate accidents on both occasions. Likewise, the Bruin captains have been the victims of misfortune dur- ing the past two years. Captain Richardson failed to place in the quarter picked to win, and Captain Terry failed to place in the hurdles this year which he had been Another strange coincidence has been attached to the All-Conference meet during the past few years also, in that since it has been held in the Los Angeles Coliseum, the competing athletes have in- variably failed to equal their best records. Six members of the Bruin team were selected to make the trip as members of the Conference All- Stars which were decisive- ly defeated by the Stan- ford Cardinals in a meet held in a driving rain on the Stanford oval. The Bruins who ac- companied Coach Trotter on the trip were George Keefer, high- jumper; Tom Drummond, discus; Carle- ton Waite, two miler; Clark, half-miler; Riddick, half-miler; Schmidt, quar- ter-miler. Due to a technicality which made him temporar ily ineligible, Clark, star half-miler was eliminated from the squad and did not made the trip north.

This was the enviable record achieved by the 1927 Bruin frosh track squad. The turnout for the spring practice was one of the best in the history of the institution, and with a goodly supply of material to work with, Coaches Trotter and Harris saw bright prospects of moulding a conference winner, and incidentally developing several performers who will probably be of great value to the 1928 varsity. The frosh indulged in a number of practice meets with the local high school squads, and emerged victorious in all of them. Like their older brothers, the Varsity, the frosh were hit rather hard at times by the inroads of ineligibility, but they had a flock of good men, and the depletions were not as severely felt as were those of the Varsity. The initial meet of the season was with the strong Polytechnic high school squad. The peagreeners ' hopes for a strong team were considerably encouraged by a very creditable performance. No score was kept officially, but the Bruin babes captured iirsts in every event except the half-mile. In the second practice afi air for the frosh, the Santa Monica high school team was trimmed by a score of 8 3 J 2 to 21 J 2. Levy and Hill looked particularly strong in the sprints, while Cuthbert in the discus and McNay in the half-mile showed to good advantage, all winning firsts. The Inglewood high school squad went down to decisive defeat at the hands of the Bruin cubs in the next engagement, by a score of 93 to 20. The youngsters began to show the fine effects of Trotter ' s coaching and were improving rapidly. Only two firsts were allowed the prep school contestants, in the mile and high-jump. The babes made clean sweeps in the 880, century, discus, shot-put, broad jump, and both low and high hurdles. Morrow did exceptionally well in the discus with a throw of 124 feet. Levy turned in a fast 10:2 Stewart hundred and was improving each race. The frosh flash was declared Freshman Captain [221] I Frosh Conference Winners Hill Castle Foster, Vickers, Stewart.

Brehaman, Brown, Hill and McNay won places in two or more events each. The first and only dual conference meet was held with the Cal-Tech yearlings on the Pasadena field What was to have been a track meet turned out to be a field day for the Bruin youngsters. In addition to the one-sided score of 129 to 11, Coach Trotter ' s babes took all first places and made clean sweeps in nine events. Smith was the star of the day, annexing firsts in the mile and two-mile events from fairly fast fields. Hill in the century dash and Wilson in the furlong, won their dashes m truly meteoric style. Both these men appeared to be excellent Varsity prospects. In the weight events Morrow tossed the platter 121 feet to take first, and McReady heaved the javjlin 152 feet to do likewise. Vickers also starred in the broad jump. The second dual meet of the season, scheduL-d with Redlands. was called off by the Bulldogs. The Bruin cubs continued their winning streak by walking off with an easy victory in the frosh all-conference meet, held at Pomona the day before the Varsity meet. They gathered in 62 points. Pomona took second honors with 47 and San Diego trailed in third place with ? ' 5. Captain Jerry Stewart was the bright star of the Bruin performers with a new conference and school record in the pole-vault, which he won at 12 feet 4 7-16 inches. John Hill annexed the century dash in 10:2, and Wilson dashed to victory in the 220. Simpson sprung the upset of the meet when he won the 120-yard high hurdles with a close vic- tory over Hall of Occidental, the favorite. Vickers won the broad jump with ease. Imbued with the same characteristic fight and spirit which Coach Trotter had instilled into the Varsity, the 1927 frosh team was one of the ablest and most successful in Bruin track history. J» «4.

The team was captained by Gene Patz, star first-baseman, and though handicapped by a dearth of veteran ma terial, Coach Sturzenegger succeeded in moulding a very repre- sentative aggregation of baseballers. The team was weak in the pitching department from the very outset in that not a single veteran chucker returned to the fold from the 1926 team. Likewise Coach Sturzenegger was forced to build up an entirely new outfield from more or less inexperienced men. The Bruins, though not winning consistently, displayed plenty of pepper and fire in all their games, and at times looked like champions. However, the lack of experience told heavily and cost Coach Sturzenegger ' s team several games. The Bruin nine started the season with a burst of glory by larruping the strong California Bears in a heart-throbbing ten-inning game played on Moore field, by a score of 10-9. The Stanford squad succeeded in downing the Bruins decisively in another game played on the home diamond a few days later. However, the Bruins opened their Confer- ence season with a win when they knocked the La Verne pitchers to all corners of Moore field. The perfect average was short-lived, however, for the following week a close game was dropped to the Redlands Bulldogs. The team took on the Arizona Wildcats in their own bailiwick for a three- game series and were worsted in all three contests. Despite the defeats, however, the Bruins steadily improved throughout the season, and though fail- ing to annex the championship, placed well up in E ,, the running.

J. 8TURZENEGGER Despite the additional difficulties that lie in the path of a new mentor, Varsity Baseball Coach A. J. Stursenegger did some highly effective work in his ini- tial season as coach of the Bruin nine, turning out a well-drilled team despite the numerous handicaps under which he worked. Coach Stur::enegger was provided with consider- able experience before he made his debut as baseball mentor here. Playing first base on the state champion- ship Lincoln, Nebraska, high school team, also catching with several independent teams over a fire-year period after leaving college. Coach Sturzenegger comes fully experienced in the grand old pastime. The best testimonial to the new mentor ' s ability as a coach is given in the really remarkable develop- ment which several of his originally inexperienced proteges have shown within the short space of one sea- son. " Sturzie " , as he is known to his players, works untiringly with each individual on the nine, correcting the faults and instilling the little tricks and the knack which makes baseball the game that it is today. Coach Sturzenegger has done remarkably well in an almost impossible situation. Confronted with neither veteran pitchers nor outfielders, he has developed a team which never fails to play good ball, and one whose spirit on the diamond is unexcelled in the Con- ference. Coach A. J. Sturzkm hhr The 1926 season is the last in which the Brum nines will cavort upon the diamonds of the Southern Conference members except in probable practice affairs. The Bruins have had a good record in the several years of competition in the smaller conference, and vvrith a large nucleus of veterans returning to the fold next year. Coach Sturzenegger will develop a winning aggregation in the Coast Conference. [225] «u» Eugene Patz Captain CAPTAIN GENE PATZ Consistent fielding and excellent hitting ability com- bined with his exceptional ability as a team-leader, have made Gene Pats, the amiable 1927 Bruin Baseball captain one of the most popular and most able of captains of all time. " Gene " is a great first baseman. Steady, reliable and a hard fighter, he kept his men in good fettle all the time. The 1927 captain had an unusually difficult position. Gene had to keep the numerous new men on the squad in fight- ing spirit and confident at all times. At his best when his team was trailing, and certain to come through in a pinch. Captain Patz has everlastingly endeared himself to all Bruin baseball fans. Batting in fifth position, Patz was one of the hardest and most consistent hitters on the nine, and his fielding was almost perfect. His spectacular fielding often saved his mates in the infield costly errors, while his timely hit- ting drove in many a run. Gene proved to be a popular captain, both to fans and team-mates alike, and his loss will be keenly felt in years to come. CALIFORNIA BRUINS 10— CALIFORNIA BEARS 9 Turning defeat into victory in a thrilling tenth inning rally, the Bruin Varsity baseball squad handed Coach Carl Zamlock ' s Golden Bear nine a 10-9 pasting in the first big pre-season game of the 1927 schedule. After tieing the score in the eighth inning at 7-7, the Bears scored two runs in the first half of the tenth inning, apparently putting the game on ice for the northern invaders. However, Wood- ruff, lanky Bruin center-fielder, and first man up in the Bruin ' s half of the tenth, knocked the first ball pitched into the center-field bleachers for a home-run. Gebauer and Captain Patz both drew clean hits, putting them on second and third. Julius Leavy, chunky Bruin catcher, and next man up bunted the ball just out of reach of the Bear pitcher, and Patz and Gebauer scored on the play. B L " 1 For the first five innings the game was all U.C.L.A., with Les Ward pitching perfect ball, holding the Bears to one lone run while his team-mates were garnering in five. Although weakening in the latter innings. Ward was able to pull the game out of the fire, aided by the heavy hitting of the Bruins. Frank Harvey at shortstop and Woodruff in center field were the outstanding stick-wicld- ers of the fray, although Captain Patz, Paul Fruhling and Julius Leavy did some timely hit- ting. Leavy performed in great style behind the plate as well as breaking up the game with his perfect bunt in the tenth. [226] i CALIFORNIA BRUINS 3 STANFORD CARDS 13 In a loosely played game that was marred by a number of Bruin errors, the Blue and Gold nine displayed a decided reversal of form after handing the Golden Bears a 10-9 trim- ming, and dropped a 13-3 game to the Stan- ford Cardinals. The Palo Alto squad picked Ward and Graham, Bruin pitchers, for a grand total of fifteen hits, three of which were home runs, while the Bruins heavy stickers could only touch the Stanford moundsman for seven hits, two of which were for the circuit. A wild throw which allowed Stewart of the Cards to arrive safely at first followed by a circuit clout by McGuire gave Stanford a 2-0 lead in the initial inning. They followed this up quite regularly throughout the game, crossing the plate in every inning but the second, sixth and ninth. The Bruins held the Cards to a 4-1 count until the fifth inning. The only U.C. run scored in this time was a home-run wallop by Paul Smith, Bruin right-fielder, in the second inning with none on. Four safe Cardinal blows and a Bruin error in the fifth combined with Ward ' s weakening on the mound gave the Palo Alto nine a 7-1 lead that the locals were unable to overcome. The Blue and Gold nine tallied in the seventh when safe hits by Harvey and Fruhling brought Pat2 home after the Bruin captain had reached first on a wild throw. A home run by Thomas Devlin, Bruin back-stop in the last half of the ninth completed the Bruin ' s scoring for the day . , Hitting was fairly evenly distributed W over the entire team, with Harvey, Fruhling, Smith, Woodrufl , Gebauer, Devlin and Graham getting one hit apiece. Les Ward turned in a fair perform- ance on the mound although he had not yet had enough practice to go the full route. Graham, who succeeded him was also touched pretty freely by the heavy-hitting Cardinals during the remainder of the game. The game proved conclusively that unless the Bruin sticksters were in top form the team would encounter great difficulty in winning games. SCRIBNER BlRLENBACH IL.- j A Bit of Action r the Plate [227] THE LOYOLA SERIES After dropping the first encounter with the Loyola college horsehiders by a score of y- i, the Bruin Varsity baseball squad staged a comeback in the second contest with the Lions and defeated them by a 7-0 count. The locals had the second engagement sewed up from the first inning after running three runs across the plate in this frame. A triple by Paul Smith, Bruin right-fielder with Fruhling and Markman on first and second respectively, scored two runs for the Bruin nine, while a moment later Smith scored on a passed ball when the Loyola backstop let one •by. Three more runs were scored by Coach Sturznegger ' s squad in the third inning. Woodrulf drew a walk, stole second and scored when McCormack doubled. Captain Gene P. UL Fruhling Patz then clouted out a hard two-base hit later in the inning which scored McCormack and placed Pats on second. A single by Tommy Devline scored the California leader for the third mark- er of the inning. All of the runns in this inning were scored between the second and third outs. The final Bruin marker came in the sixth inning when Harvey singled, was advanced to second on a sacrifice hit and scored on a single by Fruhling. Whitey Graham on the mound for U.C.L.A. pitched an air-tight brand of ball throughout, al- lowing only two hits. He issued but one walk during the nine-innings while striking out six of the opposing batsmen. The Bruins displayed a complete reversal of form over their initial contest with the Lions, when they were decisively beaten. In the first game fielding was ragged and the heavy hitters hadn ' t gotten their eyes on the ball. But in the re- turn engagement the Bruins played • errorless ball, garnered ten hits and no Loyola man managed to get farther than second base during the fray. Tommy Devlin and Paul Smith were the big guns for the Bruins, the former clouting out two doubles and a single, while the latter hit for three bases on one occasion and two on an- other. Captain Patz and Red Fruh- ling also performed in good style for the Bruins. The Loyola series gave the Blue and Gold horsehiders some much- needed practice, since the heavy rains had kept them under cover during the first two weeks of early practice. [228] Paul Smith PRACTICE GAMES In the opening practice game of the 1927 season. Coach A. J. Stursenegger ' s Bruin nine went down to defeat by a score of 13-5 at the hands of the " All- Stars " , a group of semi-pro ball players. The Bruins displayed some ex- cellent early season playing and poled out si. hits during the contest. The Bruins started out like winners and led their more experienced rivals for six innings before the semi-pros were able to overcome the lead. In a practice affair later in the season with the Los Angeles Athletic Club, the Bruins dropped a 6-2 contest to the strong club outfit. In the L.A.A.C. fray, the Bruins displayed some hefty batting power which characterized the team in most of the remainder of the sea- son ' s contests. A decided weakness in the box was apparent, however, with neither Ward or Graham having yet developed into mid-season form. In addition to these early-season contests, a number of hard-fought practice sessions were held with Coach Ackerman ' s frosh squad. In the best and closest played of these, the Varsity was able to take the frosh down for a 5-2 defeat after the peagreens had held their more experienced seniors to a 2-1 count until the last half of the seventh. The other practice affairs with the frosh were won by the Varsity by comfortable margins, one at 8-2 and the other at 7-?. The hurling of Griffith of the frosh was the outstanding fea- ture of the freshmen ' s play, while the hitting of Fruhling, Pats and Leavy featured the Var- sity play. Several other practice tilts were scheduled for the Bruins, but due to the unusually heavy rains it was necessary to cancel them. One tilt of especial interest to Bruin fans was the promised clash with Marty Krug ' s Los Angeles club of the Pacific Coast League. The Krugmen met the Oxy Tigers and de- feated them 8-2 and the fans were eager to get a line on how the two Conference teams com- pared. But Jupiter Pluvius ruled otherwise, and the tilt was never played. The lack of practice games was a partic- ularly severe handicap to Coach Sturzenegger as he was faced with the difficult assignment of building up a strong team in a short time with only a small number of experienced players William Woodroof [229] CALIFORNIA BRUINS 12 LA VERNE 1 same rifice Getting off to a flying start in their first confer- ence game of the 1927 season. Coach A. J. Sturzeneg- ger ' s Bruin Varsity nine took the La Verne College diamond squad down for a 12-1 defeat. Although the Bruin team displayed plenty of hit ' ting ability, thirteen errors by the La Verne team were material factors in the Farmer ' s defeat. The Bruins scored in the first inning when Bir- lenbach doubled. Smith drew a base on balls and Woodruff smgled, scoring the Bruin second baseman. Three runs were made by the California nine in the fourth inning; after Patz had doubled, Devlin came through with another double, scoring the Bruin cap- tain; and then Whitey Graham also doubled to score Devlin. Fruhling broke the monotony of too many doubles with a long fly to center field which gave Gra- ham ample time to scamper across the plate. Another trio of Bruin markers were made in the sixth canto. Patz drew a base on balls; Devlin also drew a walk, and Graham singled, sending Patz to third, filling the bags. An error by Lehmer, La Verne Julius Leavy catcher, let Patz come in, while another error by the man permitted Devlin to cross the platter. Graham scored when Fruhling sent another long sac- fly to right field. Two errors by the La Verne infield let MacDougal and Patz score in the seventh inning after the two Bruins had drawn bases on balls. In the eighth, three runs were registered by Coach Sturzenegger ' s squad when five La Verne errors let Fruhling, Smith and Woodruff cross the plate after Fruhling made first safely on an error. Smith hit for a single and Wood- ruff drew a base on balls. Two singles in the second inning gave La Verne their only score, with Lehmer crossing the plate for the lone tally. " Whitey " Graham pitched a first class game for the Bruins, striking out eight men and giving no bases on balls. In addition to his brilliant mound perform- ance, Graham contributed a double and two singles to the hitting total and scored two runs. Smith, Wood- ruff, MacDougal, Birlcnbach, Devlin and Patz also hit safely, with the last three named knocking out two baggers. The 1927 season was the first in which the La Verne horsehiders have competed in the Southern conference ranks, and the team was quite weak, especi- ally in the pitching and outfield departments. jy Frank H. rvey [230] : CALIFORNIA BRUINS 2 REDLANDS 3 Losing out in the last half of the ninth inning after they apparently had the game in the bag, the Bruin Varsity horsehidcrs dropped a close 3-2 game to the Rcdlands nine in the second conference diamond mix of the season, played at Redlands. T he Bruins scored a run in the first inning when Pats doubled and Devlin followed up with another two-base clout, scoring the Bruin captain. Redlands tied the score up in the fourth, making one run from base hits by Roe and Garner of Redlands and two U.C. errors. From the fourth to the ninth, the game settled down to a pitcher ' s duel between Graham of California and Roe of Redlands, with the U.C. pitcher having the best of the going. With the score tied, the Bruins got busy in the first half of the ninth and pushed over a run. Mac- Dougal, the first man up, tripled while Patz was hit by a pitched ball and received a free trip to first base. Devlin then came through with a clean single, scoring MacDougal but Pats was out attempting to score on the hit. John Graham In the last half of the ninth, the Bulldogs managed to pull the game out of the fire by shoving two runs across the rubber. Garner was safe at first on Har- vey ' s error, Graham walked McGilbra, and Gaines singled, scoring Garner and knotting the score again. England, the next man up, laid down a bunt about half way to the pitcher ' s box, and Graham, running in scooped up the ball and made a running dive for Mc- Gilbra who had darted down the third base line with the pitch. The Bruin chucker missed the Bulldog run- ner by a scant two inches however, and the game ended with the score. Graham pitched a first class brand of ball but the three errors by Harvey, Bruin shortstop, played havoc with a Bruin victory. The Bruin outpitched his op- ponent. Roe, allowing but six hits, while the Bulldog vvas nicked for seven. Devlin behind the plate played a neat game, and did some timely hitting with the willow, as did Mac- Dougal, Bruin left fielder. " Red " Fruhling, star third baseman, also contributed some stellar playing. The Bruin defeat by the Bulldogs nine was some- thing in the nature of an upset, in that the Bruins were doped to be strong contenders for the championship, and the Redlands squad was not expected to be very • strong- Much of the credit for the Redlands victory is due to the fine mound work of Roe, the Bulldog ■ ' ■ ' ■- ' hurler. Joseph Gebauer [231] THE ARIZONA SERIES In the disastrous three-game series played at Tucson, the Bruin baseball squad dropped a trio of diamond clashes to the University of Arizona Wildcats, losing the first 19-4, the second, 13-4 and the third 5-3. The excessive heat to which the U.C. team was unaccustomed had something to do with the Bruins defeat, although the weakness in the pitching department was a potent factor. Four runs were scored by the Bruins in the first inning of the initial clash. Harvey tripled, Fruhhng followed up with a single, and Birlenbach hit a home run, clearing the bases. Mac- Dougal then hit for three bases, and scored when Jack, the Wildcat second baseman, let Patz ' hard-hit grounder get by him. A third inning " blow-up " by " Whitey " Graham let nine Arizona runs in. Seven hits were registered by the Arizona squad in this frame, while two U.C. errors and a base on balls also aided the Wildcats. Another flood of Arizona hits and a California error gave the Bruin ' s opponents eight more runs. In the second contest, it was another disastrous third in- ning that gave the Arizona squad its edge over the Bruins, nine runs being scored in this inning also. The Bruins scored in the first when Harvey received a pass, and was advanced to second by Fruhling scoring on Birlenbach ' s sacrifice. MacDougal scored in the fourth when Woodruif doubled after MacDougal had Lester Ward received a walk. Woodruff scored in the seventh after he had hit safely for one bag and was sacrificed around the bases by Smith and Devlin. The third game was the closest of the three, the visiting Bruins being barely nosed out by a score of 5-3. After the Wildcats had scored three runs in the first and two in the fourth, the Californians got busy and made a valiant attempt to turn defeat into victory in the eighth inning when they shoved three runs across and were retired with two runners on bases. Birlenbach arrived safely at first on an error by the Wildcat third baseman to start the ball rolling in the eighth. MacDougal also made the initial sack safely when the Arizona first-sacker muffed one, Birlenbach taking second. Warren, Wildcat backstop, let a third strike get away from him with Woodruif up, which allowed the California outfielder to take first while Birlenbach was scoring. MacDougal then scored when Patz hit a hot infield sizzler that the Wildcat second sacker was unable to handle. Wood- ruff scored on the play. Al- though Devlin got to third later on in the inning and Graham reached the second sack, the Bruins lacked the necessary punch in the pinch to shove them across and tie up the score. Failure to hit in the pinches, combined with weak pitching and ragged fielding cost the Bruins their first series with the Arizona Wild- cats. The Arizonans played bang-up ball and deserved to win. A Li. STY Swing Brings Results i (232] CALIFORNIA BRUINS 10 POMONA 3 Playing air-tight baseball on the defense and hitting with great power, the Bruin baseball nine walked over the Pomona Sagehen baseballers by a score of 10-3. Coach Sturzenegger ' s horsehiders HQWN J knocked the ball all over Moore Field and with the aid of several Pomona errors in the infield, had lit- tle difficulty in tripping up the visitors. Whitey Graham pitched the entire route for the Bruins and held the Pomona stickers almost „ helpless. He was materially aided by the faultless Ifiit S defensive play of his team-mates. The first scoring for the Brums came in the third inning when Scnb Birlenbach, Bruin second baseman, poled out a long homer with a man on base. Pomona came back with two runs in the same inning, and the score remained tied until the Bruin heavy clouters got busy in the fourth mning and swamped the Sagehe ns with a flock of base- hits. Coach Sturzenegger ' s men amassed a grand total of fifteen basehits, Harvey, Bruin short-stop getting three to lead the Bruin hitters. Captain Patz also came through with two smashing doubles with men on bases to swell the Bruin total. The game was billed as a pitcher ' s battle between Graham, the leading Bniin chucker, and Patton, the be-spectacled Pomona hurler. Patton had starred in a victory over Redlands the week previously, and was doped to silence the Bruin sluggers. However, the Brums got to the Pomonan s right-handed slants in the very first inning when Birlenbach scored a Bruin run with a well-placed double m the center-field stands. Then in the third innmg the Brum second-sacker again took a good solid hold on one of Patton ' s fast ones and chcked a tour-ply wallop over center-field Ihe Pomonans staged a brief rally in their half of the third, sco ring two runs on a single, a double and a passed half and overthrow of second. But from then on they were kept well in check by Gra- ham and his team-mates until the first of the ninth, when the Bruins had already piled up an over- whelming lead. ' The game was featured by a number of sparkHng fielding plays. The Pomona mfield was par- ticularly effective in completing double plays, three of these bemg credited to them. The Bruins also made two such double-killings. It was this faculty of the Pomona inner gardeners for converting Bruin hitting attempts into double killings that saved Patton from an even more decisive defeat. However, the Sagehen pitched himself out of a number of tight places with great skill until he was replaced by May in the eighth. The Bruin outfield performed in fine fashion. The trio of MacDougal, Woodruff and Smith did fine work a nd made thmgs a bit easier for Graham. All of them displayed an ability to hit m the pinches when hits meant runs. The great improvement in the team play of Coach Sturzenegger ' s men over their early season per- formances was particularly pleasmg to Brum baseball fans, and made it evident that the Bruins rated among the leading collegiate ball teams in the southland.

Margerum, Fitzgerald, Leyh, Edwards Durham, Solomon. Warren, Griffith, Pecorelli, Crane, Raney FRESHMAN BASEBALL Beginning the season with a group of hard-working hut comparatively inexperienced players. Coach Bill Ackerman turned out a great peagreen diamond team in the course of numerous prac tice contests and conference games. Such rapid improvement was made during the practice season that while the babes were defeated by the Los Angeles high school nine three times early in the sea- son, they came back strong in the final game with the prepsters just before the opening of the conference schedule and plastered the high school nine by a 11-2 count. One of the encounters of the preliminary games was played with the Franklin high school. Coming to bat in the last half of the ninth with the score of nothing all, the frosh staged a ninth- inning slug-fest that brought in four runs and clinched the game. Pecorelli started the excitement with a sizzling two-bagger. Although the pitching staff was crippled by ineligibilities, Ackerman developed a capable group of chuckers. Warren and Solomon tossed from the right hand side of the box, while Pecorelli looped the apple over in fine fashion from the port side. Behind the bat. Crane and Durham alternated at the job of snagging the fast ones. John McMillan, a rangy lad with a long reach occupied the first sack while Tom Edwards and Mike Cirino shared honors at second. Proving one of the most valuable men both in the field and at bat. Captain Leyh, who cavorted about the short stop territory, was considered the star of the season. Even tempered both on and ofi the field, he nevertheless possessed that fighting spirit that made him a capable leader. The little captain was the fastest man in the frosh infield and had a whipping throw that made him a valuable man in the double-play combination of Leyh to Edwards to McMil- lan, which nipped many opposing rallies in the bud. Completing the infield, Vincent Fitzgerald took care of the hot corner in fine style. In the outfield, Ackerman had a full quota of William Ackerman Freshman Coach [235] , - ' j i »ii " A Peacreener Connects fly chasers with a few left over. McAleavy, Shekoff, Hedgpeth, Simpson, Smith and Miller, were all clever at turning three baggers into put-outs with skillful catches. The frosh hitters were led by their star chucker, Warren, whose heavy stick work was one of the strong points of the Bruin offensive. Fitzgerald and Captain Leyh also poked them out with regularity, as did McMillan. Bunching their eight hits and materially aided by eight Oxy errors, the Bruin frosh nine scored an easy victory in its first conference appearance, played on Moore Field, by a score of 9-1. The Bruin yearlings scored two runs in the first inning when Fitzgerald opened with a single, Edwards made first safely on a fielder ' s choice, Fitzgerald taking second. Leyh sacrificed Fitz to third and Edwards to second, while the former stole home a moment later when Gardner, Oxy catcher, muffed a thrown hall. Edwards scored via the same route later on in the inning. Two more markers were shoved over by the Bruins in the fifth when Fitzgerald knocked a home run, Edwards followed with a single and Leyh doubled, scoring Edwards. The seventh was a lucky inning for the Bruins, when they put over five markers. Fitzgerald singled, Edwards followed with a bunt which the Oxy catcher muffed, Leyh reached first on a fielder ' s choice, filling the bases. Hedgepeth sacrificed Fitzgerald home, and Edwards scored on another error by Gardner. Leyh scored on Smith ' s hit and Hedgpeth and Smith came in with tallies when Warren doubled. The lone Oxy score came in the eighth when Singer doubled and Denman brought him home with a single. Roy Warren pitched an airtight game for the Bruins, striking out nine men and allowing but five scattered hits. The Bruin youngsters boasted the strongest nine in the frosh conference and one of the strongest in the history of the University. They played a full conference schedule, meeting Pomona, San Diego twice and Cal-Tech, and with great success. i Q inor Sports Coach Harris. Miller. Schaeffer. Woodmansee, Schmidt, Neville. (Manager) VARSITY CROSS COUNTRY Once in the dear dead days beyond recall an ambitious young man made himself famous overnight by running twenty-six and a quarter miles and then kicking over the traces immediately afterward. Ever since that time, young and innocent college boys have been trying to emulate his example. Sad to relate, owing to the degenerate condition of modern youth, the powers that be have found it neces- sary to cut down the distance of the long jaunt to approximately four miles. There were a goodly num- ber of young Bruin long-winded experts anxious to win honors for their alma mater during the 1926 season, and the Blue and Gold runners came out on top of the heap. Coach Harris issued the first call on October 5 and his summons was answered by the best cross-country prospects in many years. Led by Captain Elvin Drake, Kjeld Schmidt, conference champion in 1923 and 24, Art Schaeffer, Si Miller and Hal Williams formed a fine nucleus of veterans about which to mould a winning squad. The new prospects were George Woodmansee, Hal Randall, Earl Bauer, Ernie Turner and Lincoln Axe. The initial meet of the season was with the L. A. Polytechnic high school and the Bruin frosh, the Varsity runners winning with ease. The meets scheduled with the Pasadena Junior College and the Redlands squad were unavoidably cancelled. The morning of the eleventh of December — the morning of the conference cross-country run, dawned clear and bright, with a snap of frost in the air. At the gun, the men struck off " at a rapid pace. Frank Rentchler of Pomona and Captain Drake of California fight- ing for the lead over the unfamiliar Redlands course. Schmidt, Mil- ler and Woodmansee of the Bruins were bunched together some fifty yards from the leaders. The field was well scattered at the end of the initial mile, and the leaders began to gradually draw away from the pack. A short distance from the finish, Rentchler of Po- mona passed the Bruin captain, who had been leading since the first mile, and finished strong to win in 22 minutes and 37 seconds. How- " " even the Bruin team won the event with a team -score of 46. The Bruins followed in the following order: Drake, 2nd; Miller, 7th; Elvin Drake Schmidt, Sth; Woodmansee, 9th, and Schaeifer, 20th. Cross Country Captain [238] CuACH Harris. Danii ls, Harter. Kappler, Neville (Maiwger Thurman. Lewis, Drlky, SmuH FRESHMAN CROSS COUNTRY The freshman season opened on October 5, 1926, the peagreen harriers signing P along with the more experienced Varsity runners. The frosh turnout was not as generous as could be hoped for, but Coach Guy Harris had high hopes of winning the conference freshman championship tor the Blue and Gold for the third time in four years. With a month of hard training the team was ready to meet competition, and on November 9, the Polytechnic high squad was met and defeated. The following week, " pinch-hitting " for the Var- sity squad, the frosh won a decisive victory over the strong Pasadena Junior College team. The eleventh of December found the freshmen eager and wait- ing for the conference championship race which was to precede the Varsity grind. Just before the race the members of the squad elected the former Hollywood high school harrier, Cecil Drury, to the cap- taincy. After a preliminary struggle for position in the first half mile of the race, the grind settled into a three-cornered fight for the lead between Captain Drury and Ray Smith of California and Smith of San Diego. Near the end of the race it became evident that the finish would be close. The California Smith led to within a quarter- mile of the tape. The last half-mile was a steep downhill slope, and Ray, while going around one of the sharp turns, fell and bruised him- self severely on the arms and legs. But showing true California fighting spirit, he pulled to his feet and raced after Smith of San Diego, " who had passed him. The San Diegan had won too great an advantage, however, and the plucky little Bruin harrier had to be content with second honors. Captain Drury annexed third place, George Thurman fifth, Rod- ney Lewis eighth and Bob Royer, tenth. The excellent showing of the freshman runners was a pleasant surprise to the marathon fans, and the conference championship returned to the Blue and Gold.

It was the second year that the diminutive coach has had charge of the Bruin fisti- cuff artists, and he has become exceedingly popular on the California campus. The Blue and Gold sockers faced the strong Y. M. C. A. boxers in their first matches of the season, and fought the more experienced " Y ' ' fighters to a tie, three matches to three. The Maloney-coached leather pushers won their first match against the Loyola battlers. Louis Besbeck endeared himself to the Bruin fight fans by winning his bout in a flashy style. Bill Mayhew, fighting as a bantam, won handily in the opener, and Jerry Pecorelli, the lone southpaw on the squad, fighting as a lightweight, knocked his opponent kicking in the second round. In a return match with the Loyola squad, held later in the season, the Bruins lost, four matches to three. On the evening of February 25, the Bruin fighters defeated the visiting California Bears in the most torrid matches of the season, winning, four matches to three. Bill Mayhew again came through with flying colors, and defeated his larger opponent decisively. Jack Frost, Bruin featherweight, had Twigg of California on the floor for most of the time during the three rounds, but couldn ' t quite put him away. Morrow of U. C. L. A. lost a close decision to Cherry, the car ace, and Scribner Berlenbach dropped another to the Bear wel- ter. Young of the Bruins, fighting as a middleweight against the Bear Captain, Sammy Gold, considered the class of the coast, put up a sensational fight, and came close to holding the great Bear fighter even. Ned Marr, Bruin heavyweight, fighting in the main- event spot, won the everlasting gratitude of the Bruin fans by left- jabbing the big Bear heavy to defeat, which cinched the match for the Bruins. The Bruins won second honors to California in the conference tournament held at Stanford. Mayhew won the bantam champion- ship. [240] l ' CuAcu L). rLR. Mai.dln, hiuM.MA.s, bMliii, liNLA (Trdmer) McHenry, Gould, Kimball, Ruckle, Suzuki, Vogel WRESTLING Wrestling enjoyed a popular season during 1927 on the Bruin campus under the skillful tute- lage of Coach Fred Oster and his assistant, Cecil Hollingsworth. The team won a number of pre- liminary practice tilts in decisive manner and gave a good account of itself against the strong Cali- fornia squad from Berkeley. Suffering the only preliminary defeat of the season the Bruins lost to the strong Hollywood Athletic Club squad by a close score. In another practice tilt, the Bruins defeated the Long Beach High grapplers five matches to two, and a number of new men showed en- couraging improvement, among whom were Alsen and McHenry. The Bruins were handicapped to an extent due to the difficulty in obtaining practice competition. Captain Mort Vogel led his men against the powerful Golden Bears in the first scheduled meet, and they annexed a surprise victory by a 11-9 score. Captain Vogel dropped a hard-fought decision to Wilson of the visitors. Captain-elect Stanley Gould proved the star of the evening, winning his match with a fall. Susuki, the most sensational grappler on the squad, and the hardest to defeat, won a great bout with Glenn Berry, former Bruin star, by decision. Ruckle of the Bruins lost by a fall to Johnson, the Bear Captain and the best man at his weight on the coast. Kimball defeated Hodge with ie. The Bruin wrestlers journeyed up to Berkeley to meet the Bears in a return engagement, and fared not so well, losing by a score of 14-5. However, the score belies the terrific battle which the Bruins waged before a crowd that filled the Bear arena to capacity. Captain- elect Gould won the only match for the Bruins when he again won over his opponent by a fall. Kimball and Suzuki both fought game, but losing battles against their opponents. Kimball was matched against Johnson on the northern trip and dropped a close decision after a terrific struggle. Berry staged the surprise of the match by reversing the decision which Suzuki had won in the south.

Kirstein VARSITY SWIMMING The 1927 Bruin Varsity Swimming team did much to make the last year of competition for Bruin swimming squads in the Southern Conference a spectacular one. Coached by Fred Oster, whose methods showed gratifying results in the exceptional performances of the team, and captained by " Whitey " Cole, who proved to be a star performer and a fine leader, the team made a splendid record. In the first meet of the season against the strong Pasadena Athletic Club aggregation, the team was defeated by a score of 46-24. The second meet of the season was won by the Bruins, who displayed remarkable improvement, when they defeated the strong Huntuigton Park high school team by a score of ' 54-23. Captain Cole was high-point man with firsts in the 220 and 440-yard races. Tom Drummond also showed up well with an easy first in the 50- yard breast-stroke. In the first dual meet of the conference season, the Bruins en- countered Cal-Tech on April 29, in a spectacular meet in which the Bruins demonstrated exceptional strength. On the following day the Varsity met the San Diego Army and Navy Academy in the home pool, in a match which was characterized by the stellar per- formance of Captain Cole in the sprints, Fogel and Diehl in the dives, and Drummond in the breast-stroke. All of the Bruin .swimmers did nobly in the meet with the Oxy Tiger water-splashers on May 7, in which the Bruins proved to have one of the strongest all-around teams in the Conference. Cole, Drummond, Fogel, Novis, Gold, Diehl and Russell shone in the Oxy meet. Pomona provided strong competition for the Bruins in a meet held on May 14. Cole and Spellicy, 1926 captain, who was rapidly rounding into his old-time championship form in the dashes, starred. On May 21, the Conference meet climaxed the Bruins ' highly successful swimming season with a number of brilliant performances by Bruin entries.

Corbin, Kirchoff, Baucham, Warner FRESHMAN SWIMMING Promising excellent material for the Varsity next year, the frosh swimming squad under the coach ' ing of Cecil Hollingsworth paddled through a successful season marked by the development of several potential aquatic stars. Davis in the diving events and Bauckham in the sprints performed sensation- ally throughout the season. Meeting many of the powerful prep school squads in the south, the Bruin frosh more than held their own in the pre-league meets, and proved to be one of the most powerful first-year squads in the south- land in the dual and conference battles. Coach Hollingsworth de- veloped a well-rounded team, but was more interested in the develop- ment of his men for future performance than in winning each indi- vidual clash. In the fifty-yard dash, Corbin, Green and Bauckham accounted for many places. Corbin usually led all-comers in this event. The hundred-yard dash was negotiated with great success by Corbin, Foran and Green, the latter usually annexing first honors. In the breast stroke, Coach Hollingsworth had " four good men and true " , in Warner, Knesel, Donith and Kirchoff, with Knesel and Warner showing to best advantage. In the backstroke, Foran, Bauckham and Cripps were strong, while Fritz; and Cassidy accounted for the four- forty dash in good style, Clark and Lipman consistently made good marks in the plunge for distance. A strong relay team was com- posed of Bauckham, Corbin, Green and Foran. Burying the Franklin high squad beneath a 6T-12 score in the first practice meet, the Bruins took first place in every event and also garnered a large number of seconds and thirds. Bauckham was high- point man with a first in the 220, second in the back-stroke and a place in the winning relay team. Cassidy ranked second with eight digits. In the conference schedule the frosh swam against Cal-Tech and Pomona, and were hosts to the all-conference event held in the local pool. The squad was capably managed by Pace Bartlett. [243} Captain Smith, Fogel. Anderson, Venberg GYM TEAM When the Bruin gym squad won its third consecutive State Gymnastic Championship in the spring of 1926, hopes for the 1927 aggregation were high, since there were to be no losses by grad ' uation. However, the old axe fell heavily upon the gymnasts, and of the nine veteran stars who had carried the Blue and Gold colors to so many victories, only three graced the 1927 team. With true Bruin spirit the returning veterans went about the task of building another winning squad, and though not as successful as the teams of the past years, the 1927 team gave an excellent account of itself in every encounter. The first meet was with the Harvard Military Academy, and was dropped by a close score. Distinguished work was done by Captain Fred Smith, Ted Fogel and Wilbur Atherton, all former captains. Soon after this meet the severe blow was struck when in- eligibilities seriously depleted the ranks of the gymsters and it was ruled that freshmen could not compete. This happened upon the eve of the annual meet with California, which was lost decisively. Captain Fred Smith was outstanding among the individuals on the squad. He has won the reputation of being the best in the rope-climb on the Pacific Coast, as well as performing excellently upon the rings. Ted Fogel, captain-coach of the 1926 team, proved to be another mainstay of the 1927 squad, starring in the tumbling events, and doing stellar work on the rings and rope. His loss to future teams due to graduation, will be keenly felt. Much credit is also due Lovejoy, Anderson, Tait and McHenry for their fine work throughout the season. Though the team failed to retain the state championship, a number of new men displayed wonderful improvement which augurs well for another strong championship contender in 1928. The freshmen, who though not allowed to compete on the Varsity squad, met some strong competition in practice meets, and will be valuable additions to next year ' s team, are Newman, Swingle, Peterson, Baus and Ginsburg.

Staples Anderson, Lane (Manager) ICE HOCKEY The fastest game played is the youngest addition to the quota of minor sports at the Bruin in- stitution. Speed makes the game thnlhng to both the players and spectators. Ice hockey is new to California and the universities have only had teams represented for two years. The Bruin puck team has won the mythical championship of the southern Intercollegiate hockey league for the past two years and the 1927 team remained undefeated throughout the season. Harvey Tafe, star guard, captained and coached the squad. To begin the season. Southwestern University sent a team of experienced players against the Bruins and forced the game into overtime periods, but the consistent teamwork of the Bruins won, 2-1. Captain Tafe and Dutton on defense, and Hamlin and Foran on offense, starred. Occidental furnished a scare for the Bruin puck-chasers in the second conference contest, holding the speedy Bruins to a 3-2 score. Foran, Frogley and Hamlin led the offensive attack and Captain Tafe, Meecham and Dutton at goal fought off the Tiger offensive thrusts. In a return game with Southwestern, the Bruins again scored a victory after a hard battle by a 3-1 score, although the opposing squad led throughout the first period. Captain Tafe and Hamlin shone on the offensive, both " stick-handling " their way through the opposing defense for scores to put the Bruins in the lead. With three wins to its credit, the Bruin team tangled with the Oxy Tigers in the second game of a three-game series, and emerged on the long end of a 6-3 score. The Bruin regulars won an early lead and several new men had a chance to show. Frogley had been showing up well in practice and played a stellar game, while Went- zell and Meecham also did well on defense. In the final game of the Southwestern series, the Bruins won a 3-1 victory, and closed the season undefeated with a stirring last- minute rally, led by Hamlin, which carried the Bruins to a 2-1 vie- Harvey Tafe tory over the Tigers in the final game of the series. Ice Hockey Captain [245] I 1924 as an active sport, and has had exceptional success al along, the Bruins consistently defeating the California and Stan- ford squads. The 1927 team was one of the strongest ever. Led by John Tatum, captain and manager, the team of Henry Remple, Reuel Yount and Lee Stanton was the best collegiate aggregation on the coast. On May 14 the squad met and defeated the Cali- fornia Bears by the following scores: Foil 6-3, Epee 6-3, in a match held on the southern campus. In a return match with Cali- fornia, the Bruins trekked north and again defeated the Golden Bears in foil competition by ' )-4. On the same date, April 1, the U. S. C. fencers were met and defeated in foil competition, by 5-4. In addition to the above victories, Remple, Reuel Yount and Stanton were entered in the Pacific Coast Championships in San Francisco, April 2 and 3, having survived the Southern California elimination rounds. In the intercollegiate competition the Bruin team defeated both California at Berkeley and U.S.C, and the Golden Bears de- feated Stanford. Remple, Bruin star, lost but two bouts m foil competition during the entire season. Captain Tatum also per- formed spectacularly, while Yount and Stanton displayed remark- able improvement. Prospects for another championship aggregation next year, are very bright. Captain Tatum will graduate, but Remple, Yount and Stanton will return to form the nucleus of a strong contender for coast honors. [■246} Thompson, Knox. Boqua. Pierce, Jack, Lairu, Forbes GOLF Golf, the game which made Scotland famous, made an auspicious entrance into the ranks of recognized minor sports in the 1927 season when the tee and greens squad achieved a clean sweep of four scheduled conference matches and won the Southern Conference championship. Equal in importance to the winning of the team championship was the remarkable showing of Harold Thompson in the California tournament held at Del Monte February 22, Thompson, champion in 1926, went through a strong field to the finals, where he bowed to the superior stroking of Edward Mayberg of Stanford, Captained by Reg Boqua, a three-year veteran, the Bruin sextet met Stanford, California, Pomona and Whittier in dual matches. The Stanford match went to the Cardinals by a 6-3 score. Harold Thompson and Bill Forbes met defeat at the hands of Mayberg and Lang of Stanford in the first foursome, by 2 and I, Franklin Knox, playing consistently in the 70 ' s, and George Peirce, defeated Herb Fleishacker and Bob Syer in the second foursome. Captain Boqua and Al Jack bowed to White and Captain Vcrmilya of Stanford in the last match. The Bruins began their winning march to the championship and continued their uninterrupted winning streak over the Sagehen golf- ers by defeating them, 6-3, in the first tournament, held over the Los Serranos course, and repeating the dose by an 8-1 count in the return matches over the home course at Girard. Knox, Captain Boqua, Jack, Laird and Forbes played great games in these matches, Whittier was defeated twice by the golfing Bruins, once over the Girard course and the other at Rio Hondo. Both meets were won with consummate ease by the Bruin sextet. Featuring the first match was a sparkhng medal of 71 hung up by Franklin Knox, The entire Bruin squad, both Varsity and freshmen, entered the second annual Southern California Intercollegiate tournament held May 6, 7, and 8 at Girard, The performances of Captain Boqua, Reginali. Bui l, Thompson, Knox, Tuthill and Benion were outstanding. Golf Captain [247] Powers, Ball, Gold, Woodmansee, Empey HANDBALL Another popular sport on the Bruin campus to be given official minor sport recognition is hand ' ball. A large number of players have been active on the courts here for some years, but not until the past season did the sport receive official support. The second annual singles handball tournament was won by Joe Powers, who defeated Seymour Gold 21-6, 21-12 in the final round. Powers, star player of the H. A. C, won the championship in 1926, and in his two years of competition for the championship cup has not dropped a game. The 1927 tournament was the most successful collegiate competition in point of numbers and quality of play yet held on the Bruin campus. There were sixty- four entries, including seven faculty members, and the competition was keen. William Ack- erman won the prize for the leading faculty player, being the last of his kind to survive, when he was eliminated in the round before the semi-final. Captained by the first-man and star, Joe Powers, the team went north to meet the California at Berkeley and Stanford squads in the first inter-collegiate handball contest participated in by a team from U. C. L. A. The trip was eminently successful. Four out nf six matches were won from Stanford, and two out of four from the Bears. Joe Powers won the intercollegiate handball championship of the coast by defeating Sam Joseph, first man on the Stanford team, 21-2, 21-5; and John Brill, CaHfornia champion, 21-20, 21-13. The matches were played at the Olympic club in San Francisco. The Bruin team, composed of Captain Powers, Ball, Empey and Gold, also met successfully the leading club teams of the south. Joseph Powers Handball Captain y [248] William Ackerman Inter-Mural Sport Head INTER-FRATERNITY ATHLETICS Marked by fine support, both in interest and in the number of men com- peting, the inter- fraternity athletic schedule for the year 1926-27 was one of the most successful since the inauguration of this athletic feature four years ago, when only nine houses were represented. In the past season seven- hundred men from twenty-four houses were active participants in the nu- merous events. Under the skillful direction of William Ackerman, inter- fraternity sport has grown from a new and untried experiment to a suc- cessful, popular and well-established activity. As a popular innovation permanent trophies for each individual sport have been given this season in addition to the high-point plaque given to the houses finishing the full schedule with the highest point totals for all events. The winning fraternity also sponsored a banquet for the managers of all the houses. Garnering first honors in the track and swimming meets and copping points in all the other events. Alpha Delta Tau won the grand sweepstakes honors from the strongest field that ever com- peted ' in the " Greek battles " . Chi Sigma Phi, Phi Kappa Sigma, Phi Delta Theta and Alpha Sigma Phi also finished well up in the final ratings. The season opened with a round robin tennis tournament in which Alpha Sigma Phi took first honors with Phi Sigma finishing a close second. The Alpha Sig team went through the play unde- feated while the Phi Sigs lost only the final match against the winners. Phi Delta Theta topped the field in the touch football activity which was a new and welcome addition to the list of sports. The Phi Delts administered a shellacing to the Phi Kappa Sigma eleven in the finals. Competition was keen in this event and the Phi Delta Theta squad played fine ball all the way to maintain its position at the top of the heap. Presenting a well-rounded team that performed creditably in all events, the Alpha Delta Tau trackmen came through in good fashion to a nnex their first win of the competition for honors in the two-day track carnival. The winners were pressed closely by the other squads. PHI DELTA THETA FOOTBALL CHAMPIONS Lyons, Phelan.

Russell, Blake Basketball proved to be the most popular sport of the season ' s competition, and interest was at fever heat throughout the casaba schedule. Kappa Psi, with an all-star quintet flashed a victory over a powerful bunch of contestants with the Chi Sigma Phi men finishing m the runner-up position. The basket -tossing sport was taken so seriously by the Greek men that gymnasiums were rented in order to facilitate practice sessions and the brand of ball played was of unusually high caliber. Churning through the water to bring in a total of nineteen points, the Alpha Delta Tau aquatic performers copped their second individual event and jumped well into the lead for high honors. The Alpha Sigma Phi splashers finished strongly, one point behind the leaders, and the Beta Theta Pi swimmers annexed third. Indoor baseball completed the season for the Greek-letter men. As in all the other events the com- petition and rivalry was exceedingly keen. However, by garnering points for each game won in this sport, the Alpha Delta Tau house was able to cinch the high-point championship honors. From every standpoint the inter- fraternity competition was a howling success. It is the logical answer to the ever-growing demand that college ath- letics number more participants and fewer spectators. It is also of value in that it brings the men of the Univer- sity into closer contact with one an- other. As director of intra-mural athlet- ics.

[250} Over the Hurdles INTER-CLASS ATHLETICS The season of 1926-27 was one of the most successful in the athletic history of the University and inter-class competition kept pace with the other athletic activities in interest and participation. Under the supervision of William C. Ackerman, director of intra-mural athletics, inter-class tilts in various sports set up new records in popularity. Chief in attention of the student population was the annual Junior-Senior football clash on Moore Field December 13, shortly after the close of the regular football season. Both teams de- voted several weeks to intense practice and the brand of ball played was surprisingly high-class for an intra-mural affair. After a full-time argu- ment featured by the desperate rallies by both teams and the determined defensive play, the score stood at 6-6. Inability to take advantage of the " breaks " cost each team the victory for the opportunities were numerous. Had either team been able to cash in on one of the numerous fumbles the deadlock would have been broken. Both scores came in the first half. Early in the first quarter the sombrero - clan blocked a Junior kick on the eleven-yard line and recovered the ball. A conference was called and then the Seniors a determined offensive [251] Ambitious Tracksters Tear Up the Cinderpath drive. Four plays netted ten yards and one inch and the pigskin rested on the one-yard Hne. Two line plays failed, but on the third down, Julius Leavy loped off tackle on a delayed buck and took the ball over for six points. The attempt for extra point was blocked. A penalty early in the second quarter gave the Juniors a chance to add something to nothing, but they failed. Following two fumbles by the Seniors which the third-year men recovered without doing much thereafter, the Juniors attempted a field goal from the eighteen-yard line. The try went scooting off into the bleachers, but a Senior was offside and a penalty was inflicted. With two yards to go for downs and third down, the Juniors failed to gain through the line, and the som brero- topped athletes booted the pigskin thirty-five yards out of danger. However, the Juniors came back with a driving offense, and with the injection into the fray of some new blood in the form of several substitutes, they ran the ball across the Senior line in no time before the high and mighty Seniors knew what it was all about. That ended the scoring and the rest of the battle was fought in the center of the field. Second in importance to the grid clash was the interclass track meet which was won by the freshmen by a lop-sided score. The peagreeners ran up a total of 66J 2 points as compared with the 41 2 points rounded up by the sophomores, who took second-place honors. The next and final interclass events to be staged were the boxing and wrestling competitions. Slashing and socking their way to a total team-score of five victories, the Junior class boxers and wrestlers annexed first honors. Competition was intense and all bouts were hard fought. Jack Frost and Suzuki had their names inscribed upon the " Speed " Borst cup for the contestants making the best showing in the annual com- [252] Qo ' Sd (Athletics [254] HaZI L CUBBERLEY W.A.A. Advisor A local record was established when approxi- mately yOO co-eds came out for various branches of women ' s athletics during 1926-27. Interclass, soror- " i ' ty, and Phrateres competition was all under the di- JhI rection of the Women ' s Athletic Association. The M association itself is composed of all co-eds who have won 50 or more points in interclass sports. Much of the credit for the successful year, must go to the Betty Mason officers of the organization, including Betty Mason, ■V ' .A. A. President president. Miss Hazel Cubberley, advisor, Jane Hoover, vice-president, Dorothy Baily, secretary, and Betty Hiatt, treasurer. The local association is a branch of the national athletic conference of American college women, which was held at Cornell on April 21-23. The official U.C.L.A. delegates were Betty Mason and Irene Probashasky, president-elect. The unofficial representative was Portia Parriot. During the year, the W.A.A. sponsored various field and play days. The year was divided into fall, winter, and spring sport seasons, each opening with a rally and closing with a spread in the case of the fall and winter seasons, and with a banquet at the end of the .spring season. At the latter the ■ ' C " sweaters, which were made an honorary award this year, were given out. Among the women wearers of the " C " are seniors: Frances Adams, Dorothy Baily, Fannie Burt, Charlotte Cavell, Carol Fletcher, Marion Grey, Betty Mason, and Adelene Ponti. Juniors: Jane Hoover and Esther Mitchell. On May 27, the annual spring Dance Festival was put on in Millspaugh auditorium. The latter was under the direction of LaVonia Walker, and was sponsored by the Women ' s Physical Education department. Over 100 different dances were given, all of them of the " natural dance " type. The festival brought out the difference between the ballet and other forms of artificial technique, and the art of being graceful naturally. The festival proved to be one of the most beautiful and artistic pro- ductions ever staged in the auditorium. Greater interest was taken by the women in co-ed sports this year than ever before. This was partly the result of a carefully thought out program of means of interesting students in the college of Letters and Science in athletics, and partly the result of an ever-increasing appreciation by college women of the fun that lies in athletic competition. JK Ji 4 ' " Coaches of Women ' s Athletic Teams [255] Seniors Conquer Juniors 4-1 in Final Match HOCKEY Field hockey on the Pacific Coast took a step forward this year as a re- sult of the excellent playing of the local teams. The latter were coached by Miss Hazel Cubberley and Miss Adeline Chapman. Carol Fletcher was head of the sport. Practice started on September 27, and from then until November H, when the class games started, team work was emphasized. Consequently, this was the outstanding feature of the double round of matches. The junior and senior teams offered the most competition for the inter- class championship. In the first round, the seniors defeated all teams, tri- umphing over the juniors 3-1 in a fast well-played game. During the second round the juniors rallied, but finally lost to the seniors 4-1 in the final match on December 2. The mythical varsity chosen at the end of the season was composed of Carol Fletcher, Dorothy Megowan, Betty Mason, Marion Gray, Alice Joy Martin, Ruth Kimball, Jane Hoover, Doris Palmer, Virginia Blake, and Ella Jo Covington Burt and Elizabeth Richardson received honorable mention. Carol Fletcher Head of Hockey Fannie HIKING More hikes, of greater variety and with more participating than in any previous year, were taken by the women of the University during 1926-27. Esther Mitchell, head of hiking, and Miss Bernice Hooper, sponsor, succeeded in arousing real interest in this oldest of all types of athletics. During the year, day, week-end, beach, and snow hikes were taken, but the ones that appealed to the greatest number of co-eds were the supper and breakfast hikes. The supper hikes were taken once every month, usually on Wednesdays. For these, the hikers left the Women ' s gymnasium about 4 o ' clock and tramped to Griffith Park for a steakbake, and returned by moon- light. The breakfast hikes were held on Sunday mornings in the Hollywood foothills, ending up in Griffith Park, where the women cooked breakfast. Several week-end hikes were taken to various points in the Sierra Madre mountains, including Opid ' s camp and Valley Forge. A number of hikes were taken to the Physical Education club ' s lodge in Santa Monica canyon. This year, a hiking emblem was awarded in May to all women who had hiked 100 miles during the preceeding nine months, provided six hikes had been taken v ath the W.A.A. Ten co-eds re- ceived such emblems EsTHEji Mitchell Head of Hiking [256} Fannie Burt Head of Swimming Contestants Get Off to Racing Dive in Interclass Meet SWIMMING Swimming, under Fannie Burt, head of the sport, had a remarkable year. The women of the University responded enthusiastically to every call for swimmers, and the co-eds on the campus followed the various events with great interest. During the fall, both simple swimming honors and interclass swimming meets were held. Thirty-three women, one of them a blind girl, Marie Torres, passed the former, which consisted of swimming and diving for form, endur- ance tests, floating and treading water. At the end of November, two interclass meets were held, both being won by the frosh, with the sophomores a close second, and the seniors and juniors finishing third and fourth respectively. Besides providing an exhibition of ex- cellent swimming, the meets brought forth a new record of 1:13 in the med- ley. At the end of the season an honorary varsity was chosen, consisting of Isobel Stuart, Esther John- son, Rose Merryweather, Mary McGeagh, Helen Gift, Marjorie Parker, Jessie Owen, and Jean McUlain. During the winter, no swimming events were held, but in the spring, ad- vanced honors and life saving were offered. The former consisted in a con- tinuation of simple honors, stressing the crawl, diving, underwater swimming, and endurance. Ten women successfully passed the test. Twelve co-eds passed the hfe-savirig examination, which included a thorough knowledge of approaches, carries, breaks and artificial respiration. VOLLEYBALL The volleyball season opened on March 15 with an enthusiastic sign-up of prospective players. Interest rapidly increased, and excitement ran high at the final interclass game which was played on field day. May 14, which de- cided the winning team. In order to speed up volleyball, men ' s rules were adopted by the co-eds. As a result, the action was swifter, and the game afforded a greater range in playing technique. One of the features of the season was the skill and sportsmanlike spirit displayed by the teams under all conditions. This was due in no small measure to Sara Freeman, who was head of the sport. Volleyball has always competed with baseball as a rival for the athletic interest of the women dur- ing the spring season. Last year, for the first time, it was placed on an equal basis with other team athletics and made a major sport. The reaction to this was seen in the increased number of co-eds who turned out for it. Sara Freeman Head of Volleyball [257] Basketball, favorite of winter sports, brought forth hair-raising competi- tion between the four class teams from December to March. Every contest was marked by well-worked out play s, sensational shots, and breath-taking closeness of scores. After the first few games of the season, all dope was up- set. The frosh, traditional holders of cellar place, won tilt after tilt from their more experienced rivals. Throughout the season, it was impossible to predict the final winner. The lead see-sawed back and forth, with the freshmen and senior standing highest in the percentage column. In the final contest of the season, the brilliant play- ing of the first year women proved to be too much for the seniors, who lost by a narrow margin. For the first time in three years, the frosh won the basketball championship. Each year the number of participants in this sport has continually in- H creased, until this year each class had two, and in one instance, three teams, H plus substitutes, representing it. As all of these squads could not play in the H interclass series, the system of color teams that proved so popular in 1926, H . J H was used with splendid success in pre-season matches. n f The co-eds were coached by Miss Hazel Cubberley and Miss Edith Hyde. HL Spl l Marion Grey was head of basketball, and to these three women much of the B 1 credit for the season must go. W r Marion Grey Head of Basketball ARCHERY Under the able direction of Allene Rowan, head of archery, and of Miss Edith Hyde, advisor, both experienced and newcomers in the ancient sport of archery were coached and encouraged. Both simple and advanced honors were given during the fail and spring sport seasons. In the fall tournament made the highest score with 104, while Jane Hoover came a close second with a Allenf. Rowan Head of Archery Elizabeth Turne mark of 103. Attracting an unusually large number of entrants this year, arrows were shot in a characteristic manner that would have made any ancient yeoman proud. The marksmanship of the women ap ' proached that of any experienced bowman, even though he might have unusual accuracy in hitting the bull ' s-eye. In the fall, the better archers engaged in a " big game hunt, " which proved to he both interesting and successful. In the spring, after the tournament for the winning of honors was held, interclass teams were formed. The women who composed the teams were the two highest scorers from each class. Judging from the results of this competition, archery has a real future as a team sport at U.C.L.A. [258] Natural Dancing Proves Popular Katheryn Blakely Head of Dancing DANCING A large number of women have always come out for folk and natural dancing honors, but during 1926-27 interest in the various branches of terpsi- chore was so great that clog dancing honors was added to the list and proved to be immensely popular. Folk dancing was offered in the fall, clogging in the winter, and natural dancing m the spring, — all under the direction of Katheryn Blakely, head of dancing. Folk dancing was coached by Miss Effie Shambeau, who taught the co-eds three continental dances. In the tryouts, these and an optional dance, worked out by each contestant, were presented. The women did not appear in cos- tume at the tryouts, but they were required to know the type of costumes used and the customs of the country from which the optional dance was chosen. Fourteen women passed the tryouts. Clog dancing, coached by Miss Bernice Hooper, was next on the schedule. Only women who had had a semester ' s experience in clog dancing were allowed to try out for honors. At the tryouts, all of the women presented three types of clog dances, and an original one worked out individually. Eleven co-eds received honors. In the spring, natural dancing honors were offered. Natural dancing was coached by Miss Martha Dean. The plan used in the tryouts at the end of the season was very similar to that used in folk dancing. ATHLETIC GAMES Athletic games was established as a major sport with the design of giving students in the college of Letters and Science, who did not care to go out for the more strenuous and difficult forms of athletics, an opportunity to make a class team. Under the leadership of Adelene Ponti, head of athletic games, this plan has been carried out. The season opened on December 6 and closed March 10. The sport included bat ball and indoor baseball, tournaments in each being held. The sophomores won the championship of both series, leading the freshmen, their only real competitors in bat ball, 8-1, and defeating the upperclass team, their nearest opponents, 45-16 in the final indoor baseball game. Out of the sixty women who signed up for the sport, twenty-two made the class teams. At the end of the season an honorary varsity was chosen. Its members included Gertrude Sanders, Carolyn Mitchell, Dorothea Tefft, Henrietta Krohn, Alice Maxon, Glcnna Bartlett, Clara Miller, and Thyra Seeke. Adelene Ponti Head of Athletic Games [259] TENNIS Tennis proved to be one of the most popular of co-ed sports during the past year. The increased interest taken by the women of the University was due in a large measure to the capable management of Irene Probashasky, head of tennis, and to Mrs. Ethel Bruce, coach. According to custom, a singles and doubles tournament was held in the fall sport season to obtain a line up on new material, especially on new freshment entering the University. Gladys Patz won the singles tournament, de- feating Margaret Vance in the final round. Paired together, they won the doubles finals, with Flor- ence Burton and Elizabeth Brown the runners-up. The playing done by the losing team was consistent and the fighting hard, but the combination of Margaret Vance ' s hard driving and Gladys Patz ' s coolness was not to be defeated. Trophies were awarded to the winners at the fall spread of the Women ' s Athletic Association. Continuing the innovation of last year, the sec- ond annual invitational singles and doubles tourna- ments were held in March, sponsored by Mrs. Bruce. The finals were played at the Los Angeles Tennis club on April 8, with Gladys Patz again winning a tournament from Margaret Vance. In the doubles series, Margaret Vance paired with Irene Probashasky, and triumphed over Gladys Patz and Dorothy Woods. With a big sign-up rally in the Women ' s gymnasium on March 14, the spring tennis season began. After the election of managers for each team, class elimination tournaments commenced. Lively competition between the freshmen and sophomores, juniors and seniors was concluded by the two win- ning teams battling for the championship. At the end of the season, an hon- orary varsity, composed of the outstanding tennis stars, was chosen by the managers and captains of the teams, Irene Probashasky and Mrs. Bruce. A Phrateres tournament was held in April and the interest shown in the matches was characteristics of the sport as played by the women. Runner-up in Singles Tournament Irene Probashasky Head of Tennis BASEBALL When the call was issued by Marjorie Teitsworth, head of the sport, on March 14 for players for the class baseball teams, an enthusiastic group of women responded. For the next two months, co-eds practiced daily on the south athletic field, under the coaching of Miss Hortense Gerviss. After several weeks of preliminary work-outs, with the emphasis on field- ing and baserunning, interclass competition began. Excitement ran high dur- ing the series, as the games were well-played and the scores close. The cham- pionship went to the team with the highest percentage of wins. At the W.A. A. banquet on May 14, an honorary varsity, composed of the best players from all the class teams was announced. The baseball season proved that women have taken a strong liking to the national sport. The series was especially successful considering that regular baseball rules were used. Indoor baseball has not been offered as a separate sport for several years, but is played in At hletics Games to arouse in- terest for the baseball season proper. Marjorie Teitsworth Head of Baseball [260] SORORITY ATHLETICS Inter-sorority athletic competition during the year was enthusiastically participated in and whole- heartedly supported by every house on the campus. In previous years, the women Greeks were rivals in tennis and swimming; this year basketball was added to the roster. The outstanding characteristic of all the teams entered in the three sports was good sportsmanship and excellent playing. An elimination basketball tournament started the season in March. Eighteen sororities entered teams. The games were speedy and exciting, with every contest an exhibition of real basketball tech- nique. This was due in part to the coaching, which was done by majors in the Women ' s Physi- cal Education department. There were only a few defaults, and in nearly every instance, the scores were close. The result was genuine entertainment for the spectators. Delta Delta Delta emerged from the tournament with the championship team, after wading through the final game of the sea- Jg Tri-Delts Defeat Thetas in Final Basketball Game Fannie Burt Basketball Manager son with Kappa Alpha Theta and winning by a i t, t , r lop-sided score. The Theta guards, while failing to stop the Tn-Delt for- wards, showed plenty of fight and co-operated well with their team mates_ Evelyn " Frenchy " Woodruff, Tri-Delt forward, was the high point scorer of the basketball season with a total of 95 points. The success of the first women ' s Greek basketball tournament was due in a large measure to the ef- ficient management of Fannie Burt and Laura Payne, who were in charge of the season. In May, the annual swimming meet was held, and again, practically all of the sororities entered teams. Star performers of individuals and the team work of the various squads revealed real aquatic talent. As a result, each event was a thriller, and spectators were left in doubt until the final relay as to which house would win the meet. The action was lively, and the success of the .swim-fest was far greater than had been anticipated by those in charge. The meet was directed by Fannie Burt and Miss Hortense Gerviss of the Physical Education department. During the all spring months, Greek met Greek in inter-sorority tennis. Managed by Margaret Vance, a singles and doubles tournament was run off. The rnatches evoked much interest and kept the side-lines of the courts packed. The matches were well-played and the scores close. Each of the social sor- orities entered two players in the competition. The outstanding stars of the tournament came through to the final round without mishap, as dope had predicted. Meeting each other for the championship of the series, the women in the finals were Margaret Vance, Alpha Delta Pi, Katherine Johnson, Alpha Omricon Pi, and Julia " Washburn, Epsilon Pi Alpha. Annually, a cup has been presented to the sorority winning the greatest number of points in tennis and swimming. This year, the cup was awarded to the women ' s fraternity having won the greatest number of points through- out the intra-mural season, regardless of the number of events entered. The Tri-Delta gathered in the most points for basketball, and Alpha Delta Pi was first in tennis. Many of the women who entered in sorority sports had never previously participated in any form of athletics. Inasmuch as the season was such a success, next year even more events will be added.

It has been the policy of William E. Forbes, Editor-in-chief, to give to the students of the Uni- versity a daily newspaper, emphasising the printing of news items in place of publicity stories. World news, both written and pictorial, has been a new feature this year, and although the only previous connections of the paper were with the Pacific Intercollegiate Press, the Daily Bruin is now also a member of the United Press, Editor ' s Feature Service, and Southern Publisher ' s Association. The perfection of the inner organization of the editorial staff has been of chief concern, and has resulted in the installation of such offices as women ' s news editors, head copy readers, dramatic edi- tor, women ' s page editor, literary review editor, and women ' s sports editor. Other new features of the Daily Bruin included the printing of a dramatics page each Thurs- day, a women ' s page each Tuesday, and, during the last semester, a two-page literary review supple- ment, issued each month. The business staff, under the direction of Eugene Conser, has also worked toward building up a more efficient organization. Although the newspaper ' s budget was increased this year, occasioned by the many new improve- ments, an increase in income of nearly forty percent was shown over that of last year. [264} The business staff is composed of an advertising and a circulation department. The advertis- ing department consists of advertising representatives and soHcitors under five night managers, and each night manager has super ' ision of one issue of the paper each week. These positions were held by Eugene Burgess, Kingsley Chadeayne, Bley Stein, Alfred Correa, and Robert Morris, while George Bad- ger served as circulation manager. During the first semester, the editorial staff was organized with William Neville as managing editor and Monte Harrington, Hollister Moore, John Russell, James Wickizer and Morris Kaplan as news editors. Virginia Higgins was women ' s editor, assisted by Lucile Berry, Gnselda Kuhlman, Augusta Rosenburg, Marion Walker and Alma Young, women ' s news editors. Morris Kaplan was sports editor, with J. Brewer Avery, Gene Harvey and Sam Baiter as assistants, while Saxton Brad- ford was feature editor; Eugenia O ' Brien, copy editor; Elcy Eddy, society editor; and Evelyn Bogart, women ' s sports editor. On the editorial staff, James Wickizer held the position of managing editor, and Hollister Moore, Monte Harrington, Walter Bogart and Leeward Bhncoe served as news editors. Women ' s news edi- tors included Lucile Berry, Phyllis Howard, Louise Murdock, Jean McGregor, Marion Walker, and Dorcas Worsley. Evelyn Bogart was women ' s sports editor; Griselda Kuhlman, exchange editor; Augusta Rosenberg, women ' s editor; Eugene Harvey, sports editor, assisted by Sam Baiter and Ken- neth Frogley; John B.

Its contacts being largely with the prominent newspapers of Los Angeles and the Southland, the Bureau is probably better known off the campus than among the students. Newspapers generally recognize the Publicity O ce as the place to come for accurate information about Uni versify activities. A staff of experienced writers is maintained, whose duty it is to prepare news material concerning campus activities for Los Angeles dailies, and to provide pictures for newspaper photographers when the occasion arises. The Bureau also maintains a photo morgue and a photog- rapher, to provide pictures on short notice for various magazines and pubhcations of Southern Cahfornia. The News Service department of the Bureau supplies one hundred and fifty rural newspapers of Southern California with University news items, sent out weekly. The Bureau ' s Advertising department prepares advertising campaigns for all student body events. This year, billboard advertising v. ' as used for the first time, and proved very successful. The Adver- tising department also published athletic programs and schedules, and issued a special report on the history, development and present status of the University. This report was compiled primarily for the purpose of aiding local fraternities in their connections with national organizations. Fred Turk has served during the year as Director of the Publicity Bureau. His staff is composed of: Nev;s Correspondents, Alyce Babcock, Dallas Conklin, Virginia Higgins, Louise Knesman, and Eleanor Probert; Sports Correspondents, David HiUman, Kenneth Frogley, Donald Davis, and Giles Hart; Society Editor, Katherine Doyle, with Eloise Gilstrap as assistant; News Service Editor, Florence Osgood; Office Manager, Ruth Jones; Advertising Manager, Joseph Grossman; Mailing Department, Katherine Hansen; File Clerks, Vaughn Atkinson and Margaret Titus.

Gilstrap, [267] In June 1920 there appeared on the campus a s Campus, " the first year-book to record the trials a of the University. Today another volume appears, with much less difficulty. The 1927 Southern Cam anxieties which beset the editors of the first volume, with the splendid co-operation of the 1927 staff, hav pleasant one. Using as a theme the life of the early Vikings life of the University in the spirit of the Norsemen history. Acting in the capacity of Men ' s and Women ' s Associate Editor respectively, Wolcott Noble and Lois Fee have greatly aided the editor in directing the work of publication. The efforts of Betty Waters, student artist, have enhanced the book as a whole. Miss Waters executed all sub-division drawings and designed the page plan for the various special pages. Photography has been handled by John Holt, student photographer, whose work has been extremely gratifying. Holt ' s athletic action " photos are especially noteworthy, as are those of the College Year section. ;lim and unassuming volume entitled the " Southern nd tribulations, the triumphs and disappointments a volume much larger than the first, yet produced pus staff has been spared many of the troubles and and the experiences of those past workers, together e combined to make the task of publication a most John Jackson, Editor, has attempted to depict the , whose aventures have colored vividly the pages of [268] The athletic section of the 1927 Southern Campus was edited by Ralph Bunche, while Annabelle Brown acted as Humor Editor. The Activity section was planned by James Lloyd, whose work has resulted in a division filled with much interest. Organisations grew into form under the expert hand of Fred Wood, who handled every detail with a perfect understanding of his work. The University section is the work of Glenn Davies. Here the sameness of Senior pages has been eliminated by the introduction of a pictorial class history. Another innovation is that of the announcement of winners of the Honor Edition of the Southern Campus for the current year, an announcement which, up to this time, has always appeared one year late. The College Year section has been edited by Elcy Eddy, assisted by John Brewer Avery. Cyril Nigg, in the capacity of Manager of the 1927 Southern Campus, assembled under him a capable staff of assistants to manage the financial side of the publication. In putting out a larger and more elaborate volume than ever before, it was necessary ' to increase every available source of income. After an extensive publicity campaign under the direction of Annabelle Brown, Sidney Clark and his efficient sales force were able to put over a larger sale of books than ever before reached. Walter Furman headed a smooth-working advertising staff which handled this source of income in a most satisfactory fashion. The contracting and collecting of organization income was managed by Kenneth McGinnis, while Ida May Valient took care of general office work. Dorothy Hayes acted as Managerial Secretary. Ray Candee gained distinction as high point individual advertising salesman. [269] Manager, Cyril Nigg Associate Editors— Lois Fee. Wolcott Noble Assistant Editors— Glenn Davies. James Lloyd.

Kerk, H, MEN ' S AFFAIRS COMMITTEE The Men ' s Affairs Committee is primarily a judicial organization of the associated students, which tries cases involving infraction of student council or administrative rulings, cheating in examinations, and any action that might violate the Honor Spirit or in any way bring discredit to the University. Upon hearing cases, the committee recommends to the Director whatever disciplinary action it deems just. The committee was organized for the purpose of helping men of the University to get the right point of view on the Honor Spirit, rather than to condemn them for indiscreet action. Men who served on the committee this year were: Warren Crowell, Frank Field, Robert Kerr, Frank McKellar, and Harold Randall, Seniors; and Tom Hammond and Paul Koeker, Juniors. Frank McKellar acted as chairman. The Men ' s Affairs Committee has proved itself an indispensable part of student government. It has become a fundamental part of the Spirit of the University. It is an embodiment of the morale of the University, and upon its attitudes and actions depends the self-government of the University. ACTIVITIES AND SCHOLARSHIP COMMITTEE Among the newer organiza- tions on the campus is the Activities and Scholarship Committee. It was created last year with a two- fold purpose in view: to assist student? who desire to participate in activi- ties, and to aid them in keeping up their scholarship, since a C average is essential for eligibility to partici- pate in campus activities. The work this year has been carried on by a committee com- posed of Warren Crowell, chair- man; Carol Morse, sub-chairman of activities; Paul Manning, sub-chair- man of scholarship; Harriet Damon, Ruth Peiffer and Joseph Long Pi II I LR, M. .NNIN(.. Cruwlll, Lo.n [.272] „ I. WOMEN ' S AFFAIRS COMMITTEE The purpose of the Women ' s Aifairs Committee is to prevent, by means of an extensive educa- tional program among the students, any violation of the Honor Spirit. The objective is two-fold: to strengthen the character of the student, and to uphold the honor of the university. The committee ' s work consists primarily in th: general supervision of the conduct of women students on the campus, and in recommending to the Director or his representative such action as it considers advisable in the disposal of student hearings conducted before it. The Women ' s Affairs Committee is a part of the self-government system, and originally func- tioned as a part of the University Affairs Committee which included both men and women represent- atives, but which was later divided into the present Men ' s and Women ' s Affairs Committees. Natalie Basset served as chairman during the past year. Other members of the committee are Nadine Klingensmith, Laura Payne, Okla Glass, Sarah Cahill, Carol Morse and Griselda Kuhlman. ELECTION COMMITTEE In an official capacity, the Election Committee handles all as- sociated student elections, with its chief purpose to prevent unfair- ness and to see that all regular and special elections are conducted in the best possible manner. The committee was composed of Julius Leavy, chairman; Hazel Tilson, Bley Stein, Charles Haas, Donald Drew, Ann Fontron, and Dorothy Farrand. Harvey Tafe, Senior; Joe Farnham, Junior; Rod Houser, Sophomore, and Warren Gar- wick, Freshman, had charge of elections in their respective classes, and were aided by a special com- mittee chosen from each class.

CALIFORNIA ARRANGEMENTS COMMITTEE Satisfying a long felt need on the campus for a committee to oversee and organize " all student body entertainments and provide speakers, the California Arrangements Committee was organized this year. As the committee is now organized it handles programs and entertain- ments either on or off the campus. The exchange programs for the college year are also under its supervision. The committee conducted the program given by the University in the intercollegiate radio competition, and during the student bond campaign it provided entertainment and speakers. Kenwood Rohrer acted as chairman of the committee. Tom Hammond, Bailey Kohlmeier, Freeman Long, Frank Bearing and Robert Fudge served as sub-chairmen. Other members of the committee included Joe Kessler, Ray Richardson, Major Wheeler, Kenneth McGinnis, William Hughes, Jeane Emerson, Alace Jones, Lucille Murray, and Monica Ecklund. KtNNWOOD ROHER Chairman Arrangements Committee ILLER Bond ommittee BOND CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE Amendment Ten, providing appropriations for State and University buildings, was carried by the voters of the State by a large majority, and the extensive campaign conducted previous to the election by a student Bond Campaign Committee was greatly responsible for this result. Under the direction of the committee, a letter day was observed, when women students wrote letters asking for help in the passage of the bill; rallies were held; windshield stickers were distributed; and many student speakers were provided at large gatherings thr oughout the city. On elec- tion day, students were posted near all polling places, each precinct having been previously covered by dodger distributors. Members of the committee in charge of the campaign on the southern campus were Alden Miller, Chairman: Robert Fudge, Bailey Kohlmeier, Augusta Rosenberg, Horace Mickley, Marian Grey, William Forbes, Rich- ard Gray and Lowell Stanley.

Davis STAGE CREW Members of the stage crew are responsible for the technical side of all campus productions, and design, plan and construct all stage effects. The smoothness of production, and the care with which the sets and lighting are executed, are largely due to the efforts of the manager and his crew, who have contributed materially toward the presentation of campus productions free from amateurish and uninteresting technical effects. The production manage Jim Hudson, was assisted by Fred Turk, business manager; Paul Richafds and Maurice Starbird, stage managers; Fred Spellicy, ticket office; Fred Baumgarten, flying grid man; Louise Mur- ray, art designer; and Erie Byer, chief electrician. Jim Hudson Production Manager Richard Gray Chairman Card Sales Committee A. S. U. C. CARD SALES COMMITTEE Extensive organization and concentration upon sales resulted in the successful termination of the sale of associated student body membership cards. Richard Gray acted as chairman of this committee, aided by Thuel Ross, secretary, and under his direction one hundred and eighty teams were organ- ized, each team being composed of a captain and four or five assistants. Later on during the campaign, groups of salesmen representing each class were added to the organization, and a race was conducted to determine which class could sell the " greatest number of cards, the Juniors winning in the final count. At the beginning of the spring semester a second campaign was con- ducted for the benefit of entering freshmen, with Bailey Kohlmeier acting as chairman. [273] Harwell. SPAULPiNr,. Hauret.

The organization is now composed of twenty-eight rally men; thirty rally reserves, who act as a staff of assistants to the President of the student body and who are in line for promotion to the Rally Committee; and two hundred and fifty Minute Men.

The purpose of these committees is to teach and enforce University traditions in the cases of all freshmen entering the University for the first time. Freshmen must wear frosh hats, keep out of Sophomore Grove, attend University assemblies, re- frain from " queening " , and discard all high school jewelry, while new women students are forced to go before a Sophomore Court for disobeyance of associated women student regulations. The period of hazing was shortened this year from six to three weeks, but both committees were successful in acquainting and impressing new students with the University traditions. Enfield.

Lloyd, Tacgart, Spellicy TRADITIONS COMMITTEE New on this campus, and promising a smipliiication of various similar committees in previous years the Traditions Committee was organized early in February. The committee as it now functions has the power to formulate new traditions, to educate the student body regarding them, and to enforce their recognition. In fulfillment of this duty every effort is made to co-operate with the Senior class, and honorary and social organizations. The committeemen believe that the traditions now in existence are the outgrowth of the common consent and desires of all the students on the campus, and that they will support them without the ne- cessity for enforcement. Campus traditions are generally regarded as sacred and call for certain re- spect. New traditions will not be fostered and encouraged, but will gain attention only after they are recognized by the students themselves, and are the result of the natural development of a general growth in sentiment. The committee is composed of seven men; four Seniors, two Juniors, and one Sophomore. Sen- iors this year were Richard Davis, Freeman Long, Fred Spellicy, and Ivan Taggart. Thomas Cun- ningham and James Lloyd represented the Juniors; while James Stewart acted for the Sophomores. Ai.GUSTA Rosenberg Chairman Community Chest Campaign COMMUNITY CHEST CAMPAIGN A phase of the Los Angeles Community Chest campaign was con- ducted during the first semester by a group of student workers, who con- stituted a separate division in the organization, and who completed their work in a commendable way. No active soliciting program was undertaken, but a Community Chest table was maintained on the campus, where voluntary contribu- tions were made. Fraternities and sororities also participated in the campaign. The student organization was conducted under the leadership of Augusta Rosenberg. " Members of the executive committee included: Arthur White, Helen Allen, Theresa Banning, James Reese, Alice Au- burn, Grace Harper, Caroline Brady, Louis Freeman, Katherine Doyle, Mrs. ' William J. Kraft, Dons Haney Jones, Emily Torchia, and Mrs. George M. McBride. [278] { (Associated ' omen Students Helen Johnston President Women of the University have banded themselves into a group known as the As- sociated Women Students, in order to sys- tematize the work to be accomplished dur- ing the school year in social, educational, and philanthropic work. This year, the four members of the executive board who have been largely re- sponsible for the successful term of 1926- 1927 are: President, Helen Johnston; Vice-President, Barbara Brinckerhoif ; Sec- retary, Anne Stonebraker; Treasurer, Grace Harper. These women, with their committee assistants, have planned and carried out the plans for the ac:ivities of the women of the student body through- out the year. The functions of such a group as the Associated Women Students are varied and of the utmost ■.nportance, and co-operation between officers and committees and the entire body of women students must be brought about through the medium of some organized group. The Social Committee served this purpose, and functioned under the supervision of the Vice-president. The committee was com- posed of Elizabeth Colston, Evelyn Clark, and Ann Fontron. The Senior Reception Committee for Freshman women was under the direction of Marianne Munson. The A. W. S. Affairs Committee, headed by Lois Fee, had charge of all dress regulations and the general conduct of women students. The first social affair of the season was given September seventeenth, in Newman Hall, and was a reception honoring the Freshmen women on the campus, with the Social Committee in charge. In the receiving line were: Dean Helen Mathewson Laughlin, Mrs. Edith Swartz, Mrs. Dorothy Beaumont, and Helen Johnston. Dancing was followed by a short program, including a welcome by Dean Laughlin. At the first A. W. S. assembly of the year, on September twenty-fourth, the new officers were presented, and a vote was taken to fill the office of yell leader. Evelyn Woodruff was the successful contestant. Dean Laughlin formally welcomed new and former students. l The a. W. S. Fashion Show [ 280 ] Plans f(ir the Community Chest became of absorbing interest during October, and the assembly of October twenty-ninth was devoted partially to a consideration of this subject. Helen Jackson, an alumna, talked of the bond election for the new site at Westwood, stressing the need for full support in order to carry the issue. The presentation of prine awards by Dean Laughlin was conducted at this meeting, and scholarship and athletic cups were awarded. Sigma Kappa received a cup for sorority competition, and La Capietola for Phraeteres. Alpha Delta Pi won the athletic cup in the sorority group, and Willowbrook house among Phrateres chapters. Anne Stonebraker Secretary Grace Harper Treasurer The period between the end of Octo- ber and t he end of December was devoted to a consideration of Christmas work, and a committee under the direction of Anne Stonebraker carried on philanthropic and social projects. Evelyn Whitmore was sub-chairman of this work, and conducted the program of aid for the Old Soldiers ' Home at Sawtelle. Five hundred garments were made for distribution by the Parent Teach- ers " Federation of Los Angeles. Marian Gray was chairman of the com- mittee accomplishing this task, and solicited the aid of Phrateres chapters, sororities, and other women ' s organizations. A Christmas program was given at the Albion Street school under the supervision of Mary McGeagh, and stockings and candy were dis- tributed among the children. Joyce Frances and Mary Schaeifer super- vised the work of making the stockings. In addition to the philanthropic work carried on during the yuletide a social meeting was held on December third, when carols and Christmas hymns were sung. A Christmas message was given by Dean Laughlin. The boys ' choir of the St. Thomas Episcopal church of Hollywood rendered an enjoyable program, and the Physical Education club presented a play en- titled " The Other Wise Man. " [281} Marianne Munson Chairman Senior Reception Committee plished since the preceding tion was made evident. ' The first formal program of the new year was a novel one, in the form of a fashion show, and was given on January seventh. Barbara BnnckerhotT was in charge of this program, and secured the presence of Caroline Mell, casting director for the consolidated moving picture indus- try m Southern CaHfornia. Miss Mell gave an interesting and decidedly worth while talk on subjects related to her work. Women entering the University during mid-semesters were welcomed at a reception for Freshmen women given in Newman Hall on F ebruary eleventh. Valentine decorations were used to good effect, and bridge, dancing, and a short program completed the entertainment of the day. Dean Laughlin spoke to the new students. On May twenty-seventh, the closing A. W. S. assembly was con- ducted, and new officers were installed. A review of the work accom- September was presented, and the growth and development of the.associa- HI ' JINKS A colorful extravaganza in original skits marked the presentation by the women students of the University of the annual Hi-Jinks, under the direction of Barbara Bnnckerhoff, Vice-president of A. W. S. The Hi-Jinks this year was popularly approved as being better than any in former years, and the Westwood idea, prevailing in many of the skits, evidenced the growing spirit of progress in the University. Eighteen women ' s organizations took part in giving to the fifteen hundred women in attend- ance a variety program including everything from a Madam X court trial to a take-off on the Duncan sisters of Topsy and Eva fame. The presence of Peggy Hamilton as a judge tended to lend a spirit of artistry. Miss Hamilton wearing a costume of her own de- sign. Mrs. Ida Koverman, New York ' s fash- ion artist, June Marlowe, and Mrs. Dorothea Moore acted as the remainder of the judging committee. Culminating the presentation of the eighteen skits and four curtain numbers, the audience, dressed in costume, presented a re- view, in which the two most original repre- sentations were selected by the judges. The Jinks was topped off by a dance in IIIU0JF the Women ' s Gymnasium, followed by re- sasa freshments. Phi Omega Pi took first prize for the best skit, second place going to the Physical Education Club. Individual awards went to Marion Blan- chard and Goldie Krieger. .■- ■ , - Thirty women, in the regalia of officers. under the direction of Augusta Rosenberg, guarded the doors of the auditorium to keep mere males outside, and succeeded in making this the first year that the Hi-Jinks remained distinctly a women ' s affair. • Skii ikum Bi [282] ... hsi s sK r = eK - , (Military MILITARY Completing its fifth year of existence, the Reserve Officers ' Training Corps of the University of California at Los Angeles achieved last year the highest honor, when it was awarded the rating of Distinguished College by the War Department. Every year an inspection is made of the leading mili- tary units of colleges and universities throughout the country, and the Distinguished College rating is given to the best organizations. Thirty-three colleges received the award last year, out of five hundred competing. In the Ninth Corps Area, comprising the states of California, Arizona, New Mexico, Ne- vada, Utah, Montana, Oregon, Wyoming and Washington, the only other colleges to receive this dis- tinction were the University of California at Berkeley, California Institute of Technology, and Oregon Agricultural College. The establishment of R. O. T. C. units in colleges and preparatory schools is part of the defense plan of the United States. In this way college men may be trained as officers to be leaders in the Officers Reserve Corps of the United States Army, and available as officers in case of national emergency. Not only does military training give information and discipline which would be valuable for national defense, but it also helps the individual physically and mentally, developing qualities of judgment, foresight and leadership. Although a military unit was established at the University of Cali- tornia at Berkeley in 1888, it was not until February, 1921, when the local institution became an integral part of the university, that an R. O. T. C. unit was organized at Los Angeles. From that group of one hun- dred men growth was rapid, until the present time when the enrollment is nearly twelve hundred. Since the University requires two years of military training, all Freshmen and Sophomores are enrolled in the basic course. The Fresh- men make up the ten rifle companies, while the Sophomores constitute the three machine gun companies and the howitzer company. Men in the basic course receive instruction, prescribed by the War Department, for men in the first and second years of undergraduate work in infantry units. This includes instruction in military courtesy, drill, rifle marks- manship, operation of machine guns and Howitzer weapons, and scouting and patrolling. [.284] Colonel Guy G. Palmer After completing the ba- sic course, men may enroll in the advanced course, which this year consisted of a hun- dred and twenty-three men. It is from this group that ca- det officers and many non- commissioned officers of the battalion are chosen. Besides assisting in teaching men in the basic course, members of the avanced course receive in- structions in such matters as military law, rules of land warfare, combat principles, military history and adminis- tration. Men in the avanced course are also required to at- The Rifle Ti wi tend one of the summer camps prescribed by the Secretary of War. Last year, thirty-five men, the limit for this unit, attended the course held at Camp Lewis, Washington. After completing the four year course in military training and attending one of the summer camps, men may receive commissions by the President of the United States, in the Officers ' Reserve Corps. The staff of the Military Department consists of Colonel Guy G. Palmer, U. S. A. retired. Pro- fessor of Military Science and Tactics, and Assistant Professors Major Frederick B. Terrell, U. S. A. retired: Captain Charles H. Owens, Captain Carter Collins, Captain Horace K. Heath, and Captain Robert L. Christian. Non-commissioned officers at the University include Master Sergeant Stephen Peretzky, U. S. A. retired; First Sergeant R. O. McFall, Staff Sergeant Neil H. Jepson, Sergeant John O. Thach, and Sergeant Earl Thomas. Besides the regular drill and classroom periods held each week, several regimental parades are held every semester. In these parades all the companies and the R. O. T. C. band drill together. The unit also participated in the dedication of the new campus site at Westwood, and m the Armistice Day ceremonies at the coliseum, presenting a fine appearance on both occasions. The unit takes part in intercollegiate competition by means of the rifle team. Last year the team placed seventeenth in the national match and eighteenth in the national intercollegiate competition for the Hearst trophy. In the Ninth Corps Area m-itch, the team placed second.

' - THE MILITARY BAND The rifle team is composed of Turner, Captain; Atherton, Helvy, Fitzgerald, Frymeier, Lovejoy, Wonder, Jamentz, Graham, Festner, Fritz, TurriU, Stratton, Abbott, Fudge, and Warner. Captain Heath and Sergeant Thomas coached. The R. O. T. C. band, composed of fifty men, is included as a part of the local unit, and under the direction of Mr. John Hughes, a member of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, has developed into a well-trained, efficient organization which drills with precision and plays excellently. William Brockman served as drum major. In addition to the band, a drum corps, composed of twelve men, under the direction of Cadet Paul Pcndarvis and supervised by Mr. Hughes, plays for battalion drill, and unites with the band as one organization on occasions when the whole regiment drills together. Men in the advanced course who graduated in February of this year are: Cadet Majors Clau- dius G. Farrow, Jr., Murray Gardner, Jr., and Cadet Captain Donald R. Lyons. The June class is composed of Dallas D. Irvine, Kenneth F. Russell, Harold J. Lovejoy, Thomas C. Seeley, D. Wilbur Atherton, Seth Barker, William E. Cook, Richard S. Gould, Charles W.

Armistice Day Review [.286] tr Q usic MUSIC COUNCIL Brownfeld, Lynn, Colvin, Carey, Allison, Partridge Left — Squire Coop. Head of Music Department MUSIC DEPARTMENT The efforts of the musical organizations on the cam- pus have accomphshed much in the interests of the Uni- versity, and in the words of Squire Coop, head of the Music Department: " There is a very certain growth in interest and in quahty of work accomphshed. I feel that we may with due and humble pride claim a high standard of classroom work, as high as one will find in the best institutions. We would like to feel that there is none whose standards are higher. Our organizations are constantly improving. The University Choral Club has achieved an outstanding reputation for the character and qualities of its undertakings, as observed in its very highly prized asso- ciation with this city ' s great Philharmonic Orchestra in the rendition of Beethoven ' s Ninth Symphony last year, and equally great this year in the ' Missa Solemnis ' by the same composer. The Women ' s Glee club has made a noteworthy contribution to the year ' s activities. The University orchestra is con- stantly improving the quality of its personnel and ensemble playing. It aims to become a source of edu- cation as well as entertainment to the entire student body by the rendition of good music in public rehearsals. Tliis feature I cannot stress too greatly; I consider it a forthcoming note of importance in our university life. " Before his present association with the University, Mr. Coop studied at the New England Conservatory of Music at Boston, and later completed his studies in Berlin and Paris. Prior to 1922 he held positions as supervisor of public school music in Ogden, Utah, conductor of the Salt Lake Oratorio Society and the Salt Lake Orchestra. Another member of the faculty who has done much to further the work of the department is Mr. Wil- liam J. Kraft. His interest is mani- fested in the excellent work of the The University Orchestra [288] MEN ' S GLEE CLUB Canfield, Holmquist, Daniels, McGinnis, Prinzmetal, Crowell, Furtsch, Smith, Halbkat. Ginsberg, Candee Wright, Orgibet, Holt, Splircin, Garwick, Miller, Partridge, Hewitt, Bendinger Women ' s Glee Club, which has been under his direction. Before coming to this University he was for eleven years Associate in Music at Columbia University Teachers ' College. All musical organizations on the campus are in collaboration through the medium of the Mu c Council, which is composed of the music clubs, orchestra, and recognized musical sororities. The offi- cers of the Council for the past year are: President, Edward Rockwell; Vice-president, Mary Lynn; Secretary, Matilda Sweet; Librarian, Henry Robinson; Historian, Pearl Allison. The past year ' s work of the Choral Club has been noteworthy. About fifty members took part in the Christmas concert given December sixteenth. This was the Christmas oratorio of " Camille " by Saint Saens, the solo parts being presented by Joy Kingan, soprano; Ethel Gurgen, soprano; Mildred Connor, alto; Alden Miller, baritone; Don Maxwell, tenor; Lucy Lewis, harp soloist. Officers of the club are: President, Edward Rockwell; Secretary, Mary Wilkinson; Treasurer, Mildred Connor, Among their spring semester activities the club presented the " Creation " by Haydn, and the " Missa Solemnis " by Beethoven, Activities of the Men ' s Glee Club, due to improved organization and the addition of better voices, resulted in exceptional success. The club was fortunate in having the capable direction of Mr. Albert L, Broad, and was under the management of the following officers: Presi- dent, Alden Miller; Secretary, Junior Orgibet; Manager, Clarence San- som. Work during the year consiseed of programs rendered for high schools, and radio audiences over the microphones of KNX and KFL Work of the Women ' s Glee Club has been furthered by bi-weekly rehearsals. The members have presented programs before many appre- ciative audiences, among them being hour concerts before the Ebell Club, and several selective programs for listeners-in over K F I. Activities of the club at Christmas in presenting carols and religious music brought much praise to the organization. Officers who have aided in making a successful year are: President, Ethel Gurgon; Vice-President, Marjorie Finch; Secretary, Alberta Carl- William J. Kraft sen; Treasurer, Fredericka Brown.

Gregory. Jacobson, Klampt, Moore Composed of an assemblage of forty or more instruments, and under the direction of Mr. Coop, the University Orchestra has attained a position of musical accomplishment, and in keeping with the spirit of the University as a whole, it is now making plans for a brilliant future. The Christmas concert was the most notable achievement of the Orchestra during the past year, while formal concerts, presented to the student body during the year, met with equal success. This year was the first time that a formal concert program has been attempted. The executive committee of the Orchestra included: President, Henry Robinson; Secretary, Orva John.5on; Curator, George Shochat; Stand Manager, Joseph Skolovsky; Chair Manager, Jack Finer; Librarians, Bernard Brownfield and Harvey Anderson; Publicity Manager, Richard Petrie. The Orchestra is composed of twenty violins, two violas, two celli, two flutes, three clarinets, one bassoon, three trumpets, two horns, two trombones, one tuba, one harp, piano and percussion. The University Band, formerly known as the " Pep Band " , made a distinct forward step during the past year when it became officially recognized as a campus activity by the Student Council. Joel Reger, who has led the " Pep Band " for several years was appointed director of the organization. Other of- ficers are: Assistant Director, Paul Richards; Manager, Ar ' thur Anderson; Secretary- treasurer, Stanley Pearson; Li- brarian, Norman Sharpe; Property Master, Dalmon Da- vis; Drum Major, Richard Petrie. The Band appears at ral lies, assemblies, pajamarinos, and football and basketball games, and has also presented radio programs over K N X, University Band [290] - ' Dramatics DRAMA The lights dim, the notes of the orchestra fade away, and all is hushed in anticipation of the ris- ing of the curtain. There is something majestic to the theater- even the university theater — and as the curtain slowly rises there is a feel of awe and wonder; a feeling of surprise that so much life and emotion can be condensed into the short time when the play- ers are upon the stage. And this is a point in the selection of plays to be presented for the University audiences, which has been stressed. All have been intense; all have dealt with life at its most dramatic moments, whether it has been along the lines of modern drama, vaudeville productions, or, what is most in- tense of all, Greek tragedy. Three productions of major importance were presented during the season. The Kap and Bells presentation of James Barrie ' s play, " The Admir- able Crichton " , represented the modern phase of drama while the 1927 Edition of the Press Club " Vode " embodied all that is strictly modern in the lighter vein of song and dance. Perhaps most im- portant of all was the eighth annual production of Greek drama at the University, an event which has become a tradition. Sophocle ' s " Electra " was the tragedy chosen for this year ' s presentation, a worthy vehicle which enjoyed the praise of both the local and eastern dra- matic critics, and drew an audience from all parts of the state where the work of Miss Evalyn Thomas is known. That the dramatic season has been a success may alone be accounted for by the fact that the work of Miss Thomas as director has been untiring, and of sufficient inspirational impetus to arouse the atten- tion of the students interested, both from the actor ' s and the spectator ' s point of view. With an un- canny insight and shrewdness. Miss Thomas selects her plays and chooses her cast so that at all tim.es she has a play which embodies a universal appeal, presented by a cast of talented student-actors who are aware of the problem which confronts them— t hat of maintaining a dignified note; a fact which often overpowers a university production, keeping the presentation amateurish in effect. Since Los Angeles has become the art center of the Pacific Coast, a problem has arisen in this in- stitution which is not evident in universities located some distance from the larger cities. Local audi- ences, accustomed as they are to legitimate productions which originate locally with the best of national talent, along with the nationally prominent dramatic critics who make their residence in Southern Cali- fornia, offer a difficulty to amateur university productions, in that only those presentations which are equal to the professional offerings will bear the test of recognition. Miss Evalyn Thomas [ 292 ] N Pi RsoN AS Crichton " THE ADMIRABLE CRICHTON " This year Kap and Bells broke its long-standing tra- dition of presenting tragedies for its annual productions, and presented a modern comedy-drama — Barrie ' s inimit- able " Admirable Crichton " . A happier selection could scarcely have been made. Barrie has put into this play all of the scintillating wit and delicate execution of char- acter for which his name is famous; he combines, without jarring the sensibilities, the spectacular and the subtle; he builds a great and unusual character out of a very ordm- ary mortal — a butler; and he satisfies the thrill-craving audience with the unusual situations in which he places his characters. When recalling a production, very few of us ever think of the director, and yet it is the director who has the power to make or break a play. Miss Thomas " made " this presentation of " Crichton " — ■ made it with the sarrie sure, capable touch, and the same artistic idealism that have characterized all her work. " The Admirable Crichton " is distinctly a one-man play, and Ben Person " 27 was that man. He had the task of conveying to an audience all the restrained strength of a born leader, all the wisdom of a philosopher and a dreamer who cannot remake the world, but who is forced instead to live out his life in his allotted place, in spite of his ability to see beyond it. A difficult task — but Person under- stood Crichton, and had the talent to put it across. Perhaps it was because he thoroughly understands human nature. Perhaps it was his quiet humor that never appeared on the surface — as it never should when one is a king or a butler. Perhaps it was the bitter tragedy of the moment when he set the signal fires blazing, sending himself back to lonely butlerhood again. At any rate. Person held the au- dience breathless for three minutes before the final curtain by the simple act of snuffing out half a dozen candles. Only a true actor can hold his audience without lines. Barbara Brinckerhoff ' 28 as Tweeny, cultivated the voice and manner that made her one of the most adorable little kitchen maids that ever bowed to her superiors. Laughing with her over absurd grammatical errors, crying with her when she sees the affections of her adored Crichton stolen — what- ever the emotion — the heart of the audience was with her. [293] Lady Brocklehl ' Rst (Esther Gilbert) qlizzls the on the island. SERVANTS ABOUT THEIR ADVENTURES Barrie did not mean for the part of Lady Mary to draw much sympathy. An ordinary actress would have tried to do a Httle so-called improving; but Virginia Richardson ' 28, played the part as it should be played, even though it cost her something in personal applause. In the first act she was dull, apathetic, bored with the uselessness of life; but in the third she was a glorious creature, clear-eyed, sparkling, radiant. It was this person whom Crichton loved, and for whom he " played the game. " Ben Brmdley ' 27, appeared as Ernest Wooley, — monocle, white carnation, epigrams and all, and exhibited a unique brand of boyishness. Sanford Wheeler ' 28 was in his element as the artistocratic and pompous, lovable Lord Loam. Wheeler has a keen sense of humor, and he appreciated fully his responsibility. Ernesta Lopez ' 28, and Joan Haidy ' 27, as Lady Mary ' s two sisters, were prevented from starring by the confines of their parts. Like real actresses they subordinated themselves to the spirit of the action. It is the hard-working, but too often little-appreciated efforts of people like these that make a suc- cessful production. The same may be said about Bruce Lockling ' 27 as the Reverend Treherne. Barrie created the character for atmosphere, but Lockling made the most of his oppor- tunities. Lady Mary (Vir(;inia Richardson) accepts Tweeny (Barbara Brinckerhoff) as HER maid. Crichton (Ben Person) approves HER CHOICE. Lord Brocklehurst, one of the " stock " characters inevitable in a popu- lar play, was portrayed by Edwin Thomas ' 27. He automatically wooed and with embarrassment confessed to Lady Mary, putting as much life as possible into the rather dead part. [29.4] ' tM-a.- ■ - J z On the island. Crichton, ruler on the island, dines with his subjects. Esther Gilbert ' 27 was a magnificent Lady Brocklehurst. Miss Gilbert has a beautiful voice, which found fairly adequate expression m the part of Lord Brocklehurst ' s dominating mother. Some clever character bits were enacted by the servants at the tea given by Lord Loam. Fred Wood ' 27, as the coachman, waited for no one; Everett Sjaardema ' 27, the very nervous chef, had everyone afraid for the china; Alice Turner ' 30, as Lady Mary ' s maid, " looked daggers " throughout the tea, while Robert Fudge ' 28, the footman, sat and adored her. Lord Loam ' s valet, Reuel Yaunt ' 28, was extremely uncomfortable; while Beatrice Smith ' 27 was as capable and collected as a properly trained housekeeper should be. " The Admirable Crichton " furnished a difficult problem in stage settings to the stage crew, but under the direction of James Hud- son ' 28, the settings were as good as the ac- tion. The rich ornateness of the drawing room was set off beautifully by a luxurious brown velvet curtain. The island scenes gave an illusion of reality through being frankly suggestive rather thaii attempting to do the impossible by creating an island on a bare, wooden stage. An imaginative blue drop, a very few necessary properties, and lighting intelligently directed, kept the settings from clashing with the characters and the action. In every phase of its production, " The Admirable Crichton " evi- denced the untiring efforts and capabilities of those who contributed to its success. Ernest Wooley (Ben Brindley) declares his love for Tweeny, the maid. [295] 1 I Scene from " The Sacrifice of Isaac " , presented by Chi Delta Phi. MINOR DRAMATICS " The Sacrifice of Isaac " was the miracle play presented this year by Chi Delta Phi, women ' s na- tional literary society. This organisation, in the effort to stimulate a genume interest in the Early English drama, presents a miracle play each year, and the functions of directing, acting, costuming and staging are al l performed by members within the society. " The Sacrifice of Isaac " was translated from the Old English into a more modern poetical form by Geraldine Seelemire. Settings were quite elaborate, representing the interior of a cathedral, and were executed by Hilda Wilcox. The play was presented at Newman Club and at St. Mathia ' s Episcopal Church, with Margaret Ringnalda, Margaret Brown, and Agnes Nuttal Robinson taking the principal parts. The cast was completed by other members of the organization. A student body assembly was entertained on January fourteenth by a program given by Delta Tau Mu, women ' s art, drama and music sorority. Dance in- terpretations and musical num- bers were given, and a one- act play, " For Distinguished Service " was presented. The _ cast included Aline Bryant, i . t T ▼ " ' " JIT . HL. .li B . I! Audrey Brown and Nadine Klingensmith. Several short plays were presented by Merrie Masquers amateur dramatic club, during the year. Encouragement of student talent along dramatic lines is the purpose of the club, which has Miss Evalyn Thomas as its director. Scene from Mirrie Masiu er Play « f [296] f ■ m r .1 The Uninvited Guest Struggles With The Spirit of Death IN Dramatic Climax of " Alcestis ' GREEK DRAMA Departing from the customary selection of a drama wherein both the men and women shared equally in the distribution of the leading roles, the " Ajax " of Sophocles which was presented May 19, 20 and 21 as the eighth annual production of Greek drama at the University, was unusual in that the entire cast, with the exception of two feminine minor parts, consisted entirely of men. While former productions of Greek drama at the University have been selected to embody not only great dramatic feeling but magnificent spectacle in their dancing and choral odes, the " Ajax " marked a new note in that it was perhaps the most powerfully dramatic tragedy yet to be presented locally. Dealing as it does with the restless condition of the Greeks following the defeat of the Trojans, " Ajax " offered a militaristic as well as a highly emotional opportunity for student actors. Increasing interest in Miss Evalyn Thomas ' work with the Greek drama was evidenced by the large enrollment in her drama classes and the appreciative audiences which packed Millspaugh hall auditorium for the three perform- ances. In the title role as Ajax, Ben Person gave a performance which involved an unusual admixture of militaristic stoicism and great emotional intensity. As the great Greek general, who in a weak moment boasted of his supremacy in battle, w hich in turn caused the wrath of the goddess Athena to descend upon him, Person embodied all that was manly and warlike; yet in the dramatic denouement, when the fate of the gods had caused his downfall, he expressed himself in such a convincing manner that even the most unresponsive audience could not but feel with him. Esther Gilbert played Tecmessa, wife of the warrior Ajax, and was most convincing in her role and won the ad- miration of every audience. Odysseus, Ajax ' rival for military glory, was portrayed by Ben Brindley. As Agamemnon, brother of the famous Helen of Troy and a great general of the time, Lowell Stan- ley gave a performance which entailed all the aristocratic dig- nity and haughtiness which was characteristic of that famous man. Irene Gilbert gave a stately portrayal as the goddess Athena. Irving Oien played Teucer, a highly emotional role which won the approval of all. [297] PRESS CLUB VODEVIL Striking beauty of song and spectacle distinguished the 1927 " Blue and Gold Edition " of the Press Club Vodevil from editions that have gone before. Since its beginning in 1919, as a financial aid to the University student publication, and the first at- tempt to produce any form of light entertainment by the students of the University, the Press Club Vodevil has evolved from a presentation of miscellaneous stunts by various organizations and individ- uals, into a unified and artistic production under one directoral staff. The latest production has defi- nitely enlarged the dimensions of the tradition. A breath of sophistication to the campus, a breath of freshness to the professional show world — that is the double Jb l K KESj F contribution of the Vode. Sophistication of a finished cast, t j H P trained choruses, clever melody, speedy skits, smart costumes ipF aHfej, s pi a nd freshness of spontaneous youth pervading the whole, m K Sb tNI m made this year ' s show a memorable event. W K ' i BnR«t Director Bud Ralston and Melba Cornel, director of the chorus, were responsible for much added appeal of unity and beauty invested in the " Blue and Gold Edition. " Their g H E I M achievements were especially significant in the absence of fg I H He fi Robert Fellows, who, for two preceding years, has super- J L K ffji vised and directed the Vode. Whipping into presentable I Ak , B ■■ shape an unorganized wealth of talent and skits, training several choruses to fine co-operation, adding numerous artis- tic effects of scene and ensemble movement, they and their co-workers succeeded in swinging a remarkable home-talent production. Audrey Brown, Homer Canfield, Virginia Watson, Charles Evans,. Robert Robinson, Vickcrs Beall, Franklin Pierce, Gene Stone, Margaret Weaver, Gail Erickson and Marcedes Vreeland figured prominently in an all-star cast which, strange as it may seem, exhibited remarkably little favoritism in its choice of leads. With this gifted array of principals and a picked chorus of seventy-five, the show danced, sang and mimicked its way through lavish effecti Charming Personality— „f color, costumes and sets. [298] Co-ed Chorus Adds New Verve to Youthful Grace and Beauty " Organdie Girl " , in which Charles Bevans and Gail Erickson introduced the lilting Beall ballad with a chorus in deHc ' ate rainbow tints, and the " House That Love Built " which carried its heart motif throughout settings and costumes, represented best the characteristic combination of sophisticated beauty and youthful freshness. " Tell Me With a Melody " , the lyric sequence with Homer Canfield and Virgin ia Watson against a living background of musical notes, and " Petticoat Lane " , a vision of old fashioned grace, also pleased in song and spectacle. " Out of the East and Into the West " and the pantomimedance " Peek A Boo Sue " , proved minor sensations. " The California Girl " finale brought down the curtain with thunderous applause. Humor was riotously represented by " Ragtime Melody " , an infectious comedy-drama in rhythm, and " Tramps " , a Beall and Stone Spring dance inspired by Virginia Watson. Vickers BealFs wisecracking " Radio Act " and the elaborate " Tom- Tom-Tommy " number were two of the most popular parts of the program. The latter skit, with Homer Canfield as a stranded sailor, Audrey Brown as the south sea vamp. Bob Robinson as the unpleasant papa, a men ' s chorus of cannibals and a women ' s chorus of hula dancers, proved to be a decided favorite with the audience. At no time during the revue was fun sacrificed to spectacle; each held sway in happy proportion from cur- tain to curtain. Such a show, cast from collegiate talent, must necessarily discover new and promising revue material, and an exceptional number of potential sensa- tions shone forth from the large, all- star company. [299] i " Hello, hello, hello ' We ' re the principals of the Show For comedy, personality, and sheer beauty, Audrey Brown, perhaps, takes the honors as having the leading role. Her Aimee McPherson gag and her spirited support of Robinson, Beall and Stone, marked her the rarest of artists, a good feminine comedy player, who retains her charm in the clown- ing. Homer Canfield was also a personality and comedy find in " Tell Me With a Melody " and " Tom-Tom-Tommy " . Canfield exhibited a devastating combination of shyness and confidence. Virginia Watson, another ideal musical comedy type, radiated romance and charm in the ballad songs. Charles Bevans, the blonde youth who provided pathos in " Organdie Girl " and " Out of the East and Into the West " , revealed a great deal of youthful appeal. Gail Erickson held the spotlight for several pleasing numbers. That infallible pair of troupers, Vickers Beall and Franklin Pierce again scored heavily. Beall ' s " Ragtime Melodrama " and " Radio Act " interpretations were comedy classics, while his " Organdie Girl " and " Toy- land " recalled numerous other song and skit successes from his famous pen. Pierce, in his field as jazs singer and chorus lead, has attained professional perfection. Peggy Weaver, vest-pocket hit of last year, repeat- ed her triumphs as petite foil for the comics, and as the " U. S. C. Girl " of the Finale. Marcedes Vreeland, " Jasz Along Girl " and lead in " Toyland " , demonstrated the black bottom and old fashioned charm with equal - _ _ _ ver ' e. 3 L ■ k KI H ° Robinson ' s eloquent derby and Milt Gross ' dia- ' " lect brought frequent roars of mirth. Elaine Wither ' s Russian dance and Dot WenseFs Spanish dance deserve special mention on a program packed with clever and varied entertainment. Credit for technical excellence goes to Ernest Grep- |fv " H pin, general superintendent; Elwin Peterson, stage man- lj|(K B ager; Earl Gardner, business manager, and their respect- Further praise is due Richard Petrie and his orches- tra, together with special managers and assistants who A TOUCH OF YinmsH Comedy contributed less publicly to the success of the Vode. li- [300] i1 orensics WINNING DEBATE TEAMS KoHLMEiR, Cohen, White. Ml:rdoch. Gooder, Wells, Jamison, Piper, Williams Characterized by a remarkabl e series of victories, the University of California at Los Angeles has completed the most extensive forensic season in its history. Not only have local forensic artists been successful in contests with nearby institutions, but in addition, teams from outstanding Univer- sities, including Stanford, Wyoming, U. S. C. and the University of California at Berkeley, have been challenged and defeated. The whole trend of forensics has been toward the development of the contest atmosphere in de- bates. Decisions have been replaced and practical live issues have been discussed. Several new fea- tures have been initiated by the women, including a system of cross-examination of opposing sides, which have aroused greater interest and resulted in a more comprehensive test of the skill of the speakers. In many cases, a single expert judge has rendered the decision rather than three judges as in former years. Forensics have been greatly aided by the assistance of Pro- fessor Charles A. Marsh, debate coach, during the past year. His untiring work with the teams and his constant stimulation to greater efforts have been a vital factor in the season ' s victories. In addition to the regular events of the year, a forensic conven- tion, sponsored by the local chapter of Pi Kappa Delta, national de- bate fraternity, took place at this University on April 1 and 2. Col- leges from all over California were entered in the debate tournament with the University of California at Los Angeles taking first place. [302] Robert Fudge Men ' s Debate Manager MEN ' S DEBATES The forensic record of the men ' s debate team during the past year has not been a clear succession of victories, but has been particularly suc- cessful in the development of new material for future years. The most outstanding event of the season was the withdrawal of the University of California at Los Angeles from the Southern California Conference be- cause of dissatisfaction with the type of questions discussed. This meant that all contests would be scheduled with individual schools and would have no part in the race for the League championship. Fortune played her hand against the Bruin team in the iirst encount- er on February 24, with the result that the University, represented by Myron Smith and Charles Schottland lost a close contest to U. S. C. The question discussed was: " Resolved, that foreign nations should withdraw all governmental control in China except that exercised by consulates and legatees. " Bruin representatives upheld the affirmative of the question, and while it was a nip-and- tuck battle of wits from start to finish, the decision was finally rendered in favor of U. S. C. by a 2-1 vote. On March 3, Arthur White and Bailey Kohlmeier, two experienced and skillful forensic artists, won a clear victory over Hastings Law School by a unanimous vote of three judges. The third contest again went against the local team, consisting of William Neville, Arthur Jami- son and Jack Freeman. Carleton College presented the winning arguments. The question discussed was: " Resolved, that Mussolini is a benefactor to Italy " , with the Bruins upholding the negative. However, revenge for this defeat was gained on March 2, when Chester Williams and Jed Cohen won an undisputed victory from the University of Montana, on the affirmative of the same question. Charles Schottland and Nick Zorotovitch lost a 2-1 decision to Southwestern University in the following contest, and upheld the affirmative of the Chinese question. But Arthur Jamison and Ches- ter Williams dealt an overwhelming defeat to College of the Pacific on the same question, debated March 31. A return match with Southwestern University took place on April 5, but resulted in a unanimous victory for Southwestern. Kenneth Piper and Arthur White represented the local institution. The final event of the season took place on April 8, when Arthur White and Charles Schottland met Stanford University in a no-decision contest at Palo Alto. Reports indicated splendid work on the part of the Bruin team, which upheld the negative of the question: " Resolved, that the civil law of Continental Europe provides a better means of h.mdHns:; criminals than the English common law. " [ 303 ] Virginia Shaw Women ' s Debate Manager WOMEN ' S DEBATES With a record of ten victories and three defeats, the women ' s debate team carried off the cup for the Southern CaUfornia Conference cham- pionship, won first place in the regional forensic convention, and in addi ' tion, defeated the University of Wyoming and the University of Califor ' nia at Berkeley. The regular forensic season opened on February 10 when the first debate in the Southern California Conference was held. The question chosen for all League debates was: " Resolved, that there should be estab ' lished a Department of Education with a secretary in the President ' s Cabinet " . It was decided that a single expert judge should render all decisions and that a thorough system of cross-examination should be adopted. In the opening event, Wilma Wells and Grace Harper easily de- feated the representatives of Whittier College on the negative side of the League question. This success was followed by two more victories on February 24, when local repre- sentatives defeated both La Verne and Redlands. Ruth Gooder and Sara Zimler upheld the affirmative against La Verne while Wilma Wells and Grace Harper met Redlands College. On March 30, Ruth Gooder and Wilma Wells met the Occidental representatives in the final event, and, upholding the affirmative of the Education question, won a decisive victory and the League championship. An additional debate upon the Education question took place Mar. 26, against the University of Wyoming with the result that Ruth Gooder and Wilma Wells won an undisputed ?-0 victory. Debates were also held with Stanford, the University of California at Berkeley, and the College of the Pacific. The question chosen for discussion with these institutions was: " Resolved, that the Latin American policy of the United States should be condemned. " On March 2, the Bruin team, composed of Virginia Shaw and Griselda Kuhlman, upheld the af- firmative of the question against Berkeley representatives and won a large audience decision. On the same evening, Louise Murdoch and Genevieve Temple lost a close audience decision to Stanford representatives. Two days later, the same team met College of the Pacific at Stockton, and while the judges voted in favor of t he northern team, the audience voted for the Bruin representatives. A final series of contests took place during the Pi Kappa Delta regional conference when the question of a Department of Education was again discussed. The local teams won first place, de- feating Redlands, College of the Pacific, and Occidental, and losing a close contest to the California Institute of Technology. Bruin teams consisted of Ruth Gooder, Wilma Wells, Sara Zimler and Grace Harper. Marsh, Murdoch, Gooder, Wells, Shaw, Temple [304] J CONTEST WINNERS John Hurlbut, Arthur Whitl, Virginia Shav . Thomas Cunningham. Charles Schottland remarkable records have been ORATORICAL CONTESTS In addition to the results accomplished in team contests, severa established in individual contests by Bruin representatives. Opening the season in a most auspicious manner, Virginia Shaw won first place in the Southern California Women ' s Extemporaneous contest. Her fluency of speech and clarity of presentation showed her to be far superior to the contestants from the remaining five colleges. The general topic for discussion was " Uniform Marriage and Divorce laws " , with each contestant drawing a special topic one hour previous to the time of speaking. Arthur White was again selected to represent the University in the Southern California Men ' s Extemporaneous contest, and succeeded in capturing an easy second place, with U. S. C. taking first. Charles Schottland far outranked other speakers in the local peace contest, and represented the University in the state peace contest on May 4, at Redlands. Leslie Goddard, in his first year, has succeeded in defeating several experienced speakers in the local Constitution contest, and participated in the national contest on April 9 in Millspaugh auditorium. In the regional forensic conven- tion, sponsored by Pi Kappa Delta, Virginia Shaw defeated all contestants in the women ' s contest, while John Hurlbut and Thomas Cunningham did fine work in the men ' s contests. " Resolved, that Mussolini is a benefactor to Italy " was the question discussed in the freshman debate league. No-decision debates were held with U. S. C, California Institute of Technology, Pomona and Redlands. Early in the year, a series of inter- class debates took place on the subject: " Resolved, that social fraternities and sororities should be abolished. " The championship was won by the Sophomore class, represented by Cor- inne Pelletier and Kenneth Piper, who defeated all other teams entered.

Meetings are held each Monday in the Society house at 900 North Edgemont which are open to all students and faculty mem- bers interested in the study of Christian Science. A reading room in which all authorized Christian Science literature may be read, bor- rowed, or purchased, is also open daily at this same address. The organization was formed by the Christian Scientists of the University for the mutual benefit derived from the study and dem- onstration of Christian Science in its application t o the problems of student life.

Brockway PTAH ' KHEPERA Originally organized as a co-ordinating agency of the various Masonic activities at the University, Ptah Khepera has, during the past year, taken a definite stand as a Masonic social organisation. The cosmopolitan character of the membership enables Ptah Khepera to maintain much of its original purpose. Membership in Ptah Khepera is limited to members of the De Molay, Eastern Star, and Masonic organizations, or their close rela- tives. This provision secures members with many ideals in common. That this affiliation has been appreciated is shown by the fact that during the first semester the membership increased from a mere hand- ful to three score active members. During the second semester this number was doubled. Ptah Khepera has been very active socially. Fortnightly social gatherings have been held about the campus. A dance held during the first semester was successful while a similar semi-formal affair of the second semester was considered by many as one of the outstand- ing affairs of the University year. Working for the Westwood clubhouse has forged a bond of friendship among the members and provided a worthy object for the efforts of Ptah Khepera. [423] V Gill. Lurwic, Baile. Louder. RixscHARn.

Because We re good, we are! S- _ I We sit around and talk (and snoo::e) Of shoes; and hats; and men; and booze, And who ' ll get Pi Phi; and who will not; And what we ' ll do on our West- wood lot; Oh, We ' re good, we are! ., ' Ilil And how as the holidays draw near The call went out for Christmas cheer — The Ayteesees went out at night And pulled up onions, and then took flight. You bet. We ' re good, we are! Just an excerpt from the Daily Bruin of Monday, February 28, right after the Bruin- Whittier Basket Ball Game: " Our idea of the fraternity that supports the uni- versity in all its activities is one that holds its initiation on the night of the Whittier-Bruin Basket Ball game. Not mentioning names — a house on the campus has levied a fine on those who fail to turn up at initia- tion. " It seems as though this particular day saw mem- bers of at least six different houses waiting in the complaint line of the Brum Office registering indigna- tion over the unsought publicity on their house fines. As we said before, we aren ' t mentioning any names, but ' tis an obvious fact. B fo yyi ■R ox Listen my children and I will tell you a story about the big, beautifii! BETA THETA ALPHA Pis ' . Beta, you now, is the best fraternity in the whole, big, wide world, and once you are a Beta, you can }{ill all the Giants, and Dragons, and Ogres, because you are bet- ter than everyone else. When the Betas walk, about, they know that everyone is looking at and admiring them. All the lovely maidens are at their Bec and call, every sorority is theirs for the as ing. Once they, too, my children, were mortal just li e you and I. But now they have flown to a world of their own — to that bourn from which no traveler re- turns. At night when they lay them down to sleep, they neel beside their little cribs and pray — " Please. God. ta e me to Heaven so that I can ma e the angels feel cheap. " We worked six months on a con- stitution To guard the future of the insti- tution; In thirty years can A. Teezee Be president, you wait and see. Well, We ' re good, we are. Our Dean Helen knows all they say. She sends her secretary in to stay And take it down in shorthand bold — She oughtn ' t to bother, we ' re good as gold. Why Helen, You only have to have a To get your pin now, thanks to we; The Kappas raised an awful fuss When we threw out our old " C plus. " Yuu see. They ' re good, They are! vV [433] i X Kl K Z KZKSK V " S N.. aS i Jgk Lost, strayed, stolen or pawned by one of the brothers, the above tapestry disappeared from the Kappa Sigma house. 747 N. Heliotrope, on one of the hts between March 10. when Joe Farnum sampled a new brand of cleaning fluid, and March 15, when the rest oi the brothers finally sobered up and were discharged from the hospital. Anyone having any information as to the present whereabouts of the tapestry should communicate with the Kappa Sigs and receive the reward of one chaste kiss on the forehead from each member of the two lower classes, and Dick Grey will always be a member of the lower classes regardless of his scholastic rating. Translated into current slang, the motto which surmounts the tapestry means: By hook or crook a Kappa Sig running every activity. In the extreme upper left is worked a picture of one thought to be James Wickizer, who in turn hopes to work the Daily Bruin next semester unless Bill Forbes returns. D irectly below this is a sketch of Monte Harrington, a live wire potential future editor of the Daily Bruin. Monte is a live wire because he is usually charged at least three points to the wind. Monte has just let slip an ill timed darn and is hanging his head in manly shame while Phyllis Howard takes him to task for the use of vile language around a lady in the Bruin office when strong arms would be more welcome. Still reading left to right on the upper row, we discover Art White making a speech ... as usual. The figure in the center is not a condensed view of a lean drink of water, but is, on the contrary, a short view of Dick Harwell about to have an idea for a clever rooting stunt — er, I mean a rooting stunt. But even with his height Harwell was unable to reach a C in Mr. Simonson ' s extremely interesting English IB course. The small figure next to Dick is only Bill Neville, who spends most of his time and energy rounding up publicity for Pi Sigma Alpha, of which he is president.

THE HY ' DRUNK This apparition might be queer-looking, but according to Phi Delta Theta Houser, Person, Terry, Jackson, etc., " it soives the poipose. " Phi Delta Theta was up against a peculiar problem. Be- tween semesters their " athletes " had to do so much handshaking that it knocked them out of activities and left them prostrated for weeks. It wasn ' t quite surprising then, to see " Ole Hy-Drunk, " as this Frankenstein is called, stationed at the doorway leading from the library annex to Millspaugh, shaking hands with all eligible freshmen as they received their blue cards on leaving the pay- station. The principal is henceforth: OIc Hy-drunk attracts atten- tion. He raises his hand, which makes his bow-tie wobble up and down. This makes the prospective Phi Delt giggle. Johnny Terry and Johnny Jackson, who have been hanging around the corner, either O.K. the prospect, or they don ' t. If they don ' t, nothing happens. If they do, the hand is raised again and again until the freshman has had his fill of the liquid. It is clamied that Ole Hy-Drunk is made out of part of a gasoline station. Jack Hammer ' s stock, parts of a tractor left run- ning around by the Beta house, a few crankshafts, the contents of a rag-peddler ' s wagon, and a couple of shots of " heigh-hee- hi ho.

The first hints were dehcate — nay, subtle. They audibly hoped that nothing would get in about them, and laughed appreciatively at the cracks made against rival groups with Greek mottoes, even when they didn ' t quite see the point. However, as the weeks went by, the hints grew broader — and still no Alpha O page. The hopes that " nothing would get in " were changed to " what is going to get in? " And still the editors couldn t see that they rated. The matter was brought up at the Monday meeting. All members were pledged to pull every wire to get a page done before the Campus went to the printers. But in spite of having Alma Young on the staff, the section went to press without the Halpha Hoes. And then the ad staff couldn ' t fill a couple of pages. It was decided to fill them with satire. The Aoes grasped at the last straw and a member of the mud-shnging section. They talked up the house and gave out glowing stories of their escapades. They asked with tears in their eyes that the Alpha Chi Omega page be ditched. The dirt-digger had eye for business. He stalled. " Come up to the house — oh do! " they urged; and when he got damn ready, he came. A for- mal tea was in progress. No matter — there was a limosine in the front yard with luxurious cushions and ash trays and — A vision in green georgette did her best. She told about the purity squad; their chances for becom- ing a second Chi O; the story that Dean Helen wouldn ' t let go through the last Helz Belz; the pledge they broke and the prospect of breaking another; the Alpha Sigs getting turned down by them and going to the Deltadeltadeltas for dates; still the dirt-digger couldn ' t get an idea for a page. In desperation the house scrap book was sent for, proudly presented and talked up. They had everything in it from the picture of the Zete Vode chorus — in which there were FIVE — mind you, five — Alpha Oze, down to the good sister who ran away with a doctor. The thing that would hurt them worst would be to leave them out. But the campus would never know what a wealth of press agent material there is in the Ay, Oh pie house. And we always aim to please the public. [461 ] [462] [463] zfe TfJAUB HT L 0 Qf fe aK d fcoPL r;.- [464} v-.

ATTORNEYS-AT-LAW Los Angeles Compliments of BLUE CROSS DRUG STORE THE COLD POTATO In that dim dark hour of the waning night a few scant minutes before the raucous clamor of the alarm clock was to awaken Apollo ' s wife to the necessity of preparing breakfast, ham and eggs, since it was Thursday morning, a long, underslung, cigar shaped Ford sedan swayed perilously up Vermont avenue at the breath taking rate of twenty miles an hour. In the car, lounging carelessly about on the soft, comfortable upholstery, a gay party of six persons was standing on its last legs. Three were dressed in this or that, while the other three were wearing the usual thing. Earlier in the evening the party had waxed merry, but as Mary had proved unable to hold her liquor respect- ably, she had been taken home and replaced with another girl. No one had minded much since Mary had contributed little to the incessant chatter but hiccoughs, and these lack the variety needed for a well balanced conversation. A little later Jimmy and Mabel passed out simultaneously, but very luckily two others were easily found to fill their places. All went well, then, until Harry got out to buy a package of cigarettes. He had misplaced him- self somewhere in the store, and rather than stop to hunt for him, a fellow was picked up at the Mu Katta house to fill out the party. Just what happened to Bill and Nancy was not known exactly, but their absence was hardly noticed because the couple that were picked up as substitutes brought their own liquor, which Bill never did. As matters stood at the time the Ford went rolling merrily down Vermont, no one knew or cared what had become of the crowd that had started the party originally. Those that remained had their hands full trying to give it a proper finish. During a sudden lull in the conversation relieved only by the steady and rather musical snoring of the fellow from the Mu Katta house, a muffled voice suddenly called out: " What is the strongest animal in the world? " " The goat, " cried someone from the front seat.

" " You, Chauncey, " with a sigh. " And the most perfect lover? " " You, Chauncey, " in a voice of infinite tenderness, then added: " Tell me, Chauncey, who is the most beautiful woman in the world? " Chauncey muttered something. " Who? " the girl persisted, a gleam of expectation lighting her eyes like a patent cigar igniter. " My mother, " remarked Chauncey coldly, as he carelessly flicked his cigarette ashes into one appropriately shaped ear. [469} I fi [470] I [471] with the Band ■■rr.

To John Holt, campus photographer, we offer many thanks for his splendid work and co-opera- tion. To Betty Waters we owe a debt of gratitude for her elforts, both in technical matters and in art work. Special mention should be given Ralph Bunche for his athletic section, and J. Brewer Avery for his work on the feature section. To Lois Fee and Wolcott Noble, associate editors, we are deeply indebted for their timely assist- ance, and Jimmy Lloyd deserves a world of credit for his efforts. On the managerial staff Walter Fur- man, Sidney Clark, and Ray Candee contributed much t(.) the success of the book. We were indeed fortunate in securing the aid of George Orme, of Carl A. Bundy Quill Press, as personal advisor of the book. It was through him that such splendid results were obtained in tech- nical lay-out and typography, which was handled by the Carl A. Bundy Quill Press. Throughout the printing of the book, the Carl A. Bundy Quill Press gave special attention to every phase of the work, showing an interest which went far beyond the requirements of their task. We wish especially to extend thanks to Jesse G. Jessup, manager, and to Wm. L. Gardner and J. M. Jessup and the shop workers for the part they played in making the volume one of the best. The engraving in the 1927 Southern Campus is the work of the Bryan-Brandenburg Company. In an advisory capacity, Waldo E. Edmunds gave personal attention to our work and was invaluable in every sense of the word. Arthur Preter, Ben Hooper, and W. J. Brandenburg were also of much help in preparing the engraving copy of the book. The quaHty of service and workmanship in this line proved to be highly satisfactory in every respect. To George De Longe we are most deeply indebted for the art work which brightens the pages of the book. Mr. De Longe designed the general scheme of the volume and executed the main division paintings, the full color views, and the opening section. His painting of Mr. Spaulding at the opening of the book is a splendid likeness, and the end sheet is expressive of the spirit of iking life. Thanks are due Miss Lois Strong of the Hartsook Studios, and her aid is thankfully acknowl- edged. Ross McFee, of the Zellerbach Paper Company, and S. B. Babcock, of Weber-McCrea Com- pany, who was most helpful in the selection of the cover, deserve many thanks for their interest. Thanking you. cc p Manager.

Eager to trace its spume-trac to the west Bearing a fallen chieftain to his rest - ■ ■ Twilight ■ ■ ■ the driven sea-boat drops away, Dar , where the last clear finger-tip of day Touches the brimming water ' s farthest rim.
