The cub is the offspring of the bear: the University School is the youngest
development of the School of Education at the University of California. Cubs
grow up, they became large and powerful, so the University School, founded in
weakness in the tragic days of IQI4, shall grow into a great educational insti-
tution whence shall go forth enthusiastic disciples of art, literature, and science
to spread enlightenment throughout our sunny land.
The cub suggests a warm and woolly creature, full of animal spirits, frolic-
some, jolly, and gay, a not altogether unfitting suggestion of the carefree high
school boy or girl who, midst a war-torn world and a high cost of living, takes
life jauntily and has for the most part a pretty good time. Such is the nature
of a cub, the seriousness of the bear comes all too soon.
The Cub, with a capital "C", is the journal that records the doings of the
young cubs that roam this institution. Vfhen the cubs have jinks or win a
boat race, the cub reporters manufacture "copy". Wfhen a good story is writ-
ten by some promising young cub, the reporter gets it and hands it on to the
bigger cub in the editorial chair. Some of the cubs "all dressed up" troop off
to studios and soon thereafter pictures arrive. Step by step the journal is made
and the last day of school sees its distribution. Success to it!
"The Cub" goes to press this time mid the jar of hammer and axe, the
crash-bang of wrench on pipe, the chug-chug of motor truck delivering building
material. Our new wing is nearing completion, the wing that is to give us two
new class rooms, a library study-hall, and a most up to date laboratory. It is
going to be an immense help to us all. The library will have a chance to ex-
pand, the science people will have more adequate facilities, the drawing depart-
ment will be able to have its entire building, while all the literary departments
will get either more room or rooms more closely related. To the student body
the basement with its shower baths and lockers will be welcome, leading, we
hope, to better athletics and some systematic physical culture for girls as well
All this spells progress for the University School. There are other indications.
A parent-teachers' association, meeting regularly the hrst Monday of each month,
has been formed to further the best interests of the school. The University of
California has honored the school by visits from President W'heeler, Dean Bar-
rows, Miss Everest, and Professors Holway, Kemp, Richardson, Rugh, and
Stratton. Superintendent Barker's interest in our school is unabated.
To the Board of Education of the City of Oakland we are grateful for the
new addition to our building, the improvement of our facilities and the warm
personal interest and encouragement of its individual members.
To the faculty and student body the principal feels more heartfelt gratitude
than he can adequately express. It was almost worth while being ill to realize
so fully the loyalty and loving kindness of so many good people in this world.
May the New Year bring to all of us the happiness of successful work together.
May prosperity attend the activities of the University Cubs in general, and in
particular the journalistic activity known among us as our school paper, "The
Cub." HERBERT LEE, Principal.
Sunset and the Forest
'Twas dusk, yet the sun's glow still lingered-
The forest was shady and cool,
Dark shadows hung down from the branches,
The breeze gently sti1'1',d a dark pool.
The birds in the trees sang softly,
And drowsily humm'd the beesg
A stream in the distance murmured
Good night to the stalwart trees.
Then slowly the colors faded
Above spread an amethyst skyg
A silv'1'y crescent ascended,
And day left the woods with a sigh.
LEONA MAYER, June ,1Q.
Is There Anything In It?
CC AVENS is playing a good game today," said Professor "Hal" Stevens,
to Head Coach Joe Hanley of the Altamont 'Varsity, as they watched
the team in their last practice game before the Big Game the following Saturday.
"Yes," said the coach. Then he added, "I hope nothing happens to him."
Left end on the 'Varsity had given the coach a great deal of trouble. Now
it seemed to be well taken care of by Havens, who was playing a brilliant game.
At the first of the season it looked as though the position would be the strongest
on the team. Altamont apparently had a wealth of ends. Carter of last year's
'Varsity, the best defensive end in the state and one of the gamest little fellows
that ever laced a cleat, had returned, as had also Smith, a last yea1"s veteran,
XVright of the last year's freshman team had been a star. Eldridge, also of
the freshmen, was good material. XVhittier and Havens, who were "subs" last
year, were figured to go back to the seconds. All looked promising.
Presently troubles began. Poor scholarship removed XfVright. W'hittier's
parents objected to his playing, and he was forced to quit. Then Eldridge frac-
tured his ribs, leaving only Havens in case of injury to Carter or Smith.
Two weeks before the Big Game, Carter was taken with appendicitis.
Havens was the only man to take the place. Stiles, who two months ago had
been a "sub" on the second team, on account of Carter's promotion, found him-
self a substitute on the 'Varsity.
"Time outf' came the cry from the field. The coach saw an Altamont man
on the ground. He rushed out to find Havens groaning with rage and the pain
of a dislocated shoulder.
There were tears in the coach's eyes as he turned to the bench where his
substitute players sat, "Stiles," he said, "go in."
That evening as Hanley was walking dejectedly to his room, he was met by
Professor Stevens, who was one of the youngest professors in the Faculty. He
had attended the same college and played on the same team as Hanley.
"Tough luck, joe," greeted Stevens, "whom will you start next Saturday?"
"I clon't knowf' he repliedg "Stiles played a bad game while he was in
today. He is too slow. XVhen he catches a pass he can't dodge. I may use
"He's a, tackle, not an end," argued Stevens.
"VVell," said the coach dejectedly, "he hasn't anything on Stiles. He is no
end either l"
"Stiles, I think," replied Stevens, "is just the sort of a fellow the crowd
would affect favorably. The concentration of the thousands of minds on the
bleachers will overcome his indecision in getting into plays. He'll play well
in the game with Markham."
"Listen to me Hal," fiercely interrupted Hanley. "This mental sugges-
tion doesn't mix with football. Listening to that silly psychology of yours
has ceased to be funny. Nine men out of every ten play the same ball all
season that they play in the big game. Some play well, others fall down. This
happens all season. If I hadn't played on the same team that you did for three
years, I'd say you knew nothing about football."
Seeing the coach was in no mood to argue his friend left him as they
passed the inlirmary.
Professor Stevens firmly believed that thought could be transmitted from
one brain to another. He believed if two person's minds were concentrated
upon one subject the suggestion of the stronger mind would triumph and the
body in which the weaker mind was situated would do the bidding of the
stronger mind. He also believed that the persons did not have to be in the
same room or even in the same building.
Many times he had argued this point with Joe. Always Hanley refused to
be convinced. I-Ie would always declare the demonstration in the theatres were
faked, that they were only possible through the use of confederates.
"Some day I'll get a chance to prove it to youf' Stevens would say.
"XN'hen you do, let me know about it," was always I-Ianley's scoffing re-
sponse, "There is nothing in itf'
Professor Stevens had stopped at the inhrmary to tell Carter how the
game had resulted. He had been to see him the night before and had prom-
ised to return after dinner.
"I-Iow did it go ?" asked Carter eagerly as the professor entered the room.
"Havens dislocated his shoulder today. He will not be able to play Sat-
urday," answered Stevens.
"He did?" groaned Carter, 'fThen they have no one to go in. If only I
could be there," he groaned, 'fIf I could only go in. I must at least see the
game. They must let me go."
"But," argued the other ,"You won't be able to leave your bed by next
"Dbl I must see the game. It would kill me to keep me waiting," Carter
Professor Stevens went from Carter's bedside to the office of the chief sur-
geon and asked to be allowed to install a telephone to Carter's room so that he
could tell him of the game as it progressed.
"Do you think he could stand the excitement?" asked the surgeon.
"He could hear the cheering from the field anyhow," returned the Profes-
sor. "That wouldn't hurt him much as the suspense."
"It may do him some good," ventured the surgeon, "I think .we'll try it."
The morning of the game dawned brightly. It was a perfect day for the
gay crowd assembled. The Markham red and gold and the purple of Alta-
mont were everywhere in sight. Pretty girls wearing huge red. dahlias and
yellow chrysanthemums dotted the Markham section. Violets bloomed on the
Altamont side. Some of the more reckless youths had even obtained lavender
orchids for their fair companions. It was a gala day for the crowd but a poor
day for football.
Professor Stevens took his place among the pressmen and prepared to tell
every detail of the play to the boy whose anxious ears waited for news of the
success or failure of his college, the college he had fought for for three years.
He was determined, in spite of the doctor, to give him every point of every
play, even the formations and the direction each play was taking. Especially
he planned to tell him the playing of the man who went in at left end.
just as the teams lined up for the kick-off the operator at the telephone
exchange by some error closed the line to the Infirmary. It was five minutes
before connections could be again opened.
As he was told that Holmes, Markham's star kicker, had kicked a field
goal, that the ball had been brought into position by Stiles, who was playing
left end, that only a fumble and an uncompleted forward pass was all that
saved Altamont from a touchdown, Carter broke out sobbing.
"Stiles," he cried, "Stiles, you big bum, get in and break that up-"
As Professor Setvens told him the plays, Carter played them in his mind.
As the game progressed, Stiles' playing became stronger and stronger. He
displayed trick after trick that was characteristic of Carter, and only of Carter,
but still Altamont could not score. Three periods had passed. Twice Renolds
had attempted field goals from the thirty-yard line. Twice he had failed. But
three minutes remained of the last period. Markham had not scored again,
but their lead looked safe as they were in possession of the ball on Altamont's
forty yard line.
Three plays gained but six yards. Wlith four yards to go on the last down,
Markham forme-d in punt formation, Holmes dropping back as though to at-
tempt a field goal. There seemed but little chance of his making it, however,
as he must kick from the forty-two yard line at the side of the field.
"They wonlt kick," cried Carter, as word came over the telephone of the
formation. "They know if they can hold the ball, they can kill time until the
end of the game. XVatch the fake. Look out for a pass on the short sideg on
your side, Stilesf,
As the ball was snapped, Holmes poised as though to kick, then hurled it
down the held where a Markham end was sprinting toward the Altamont line.
Stiles had guessed the play and had followed the end. As the ball was about
to go over his head' into the outstretched arms of the Markham man, he leaped
and caught it.
"Stiles has intercepted the pass," came across the wire, and the hospital
jumped at Carter's frenzied cry of "Go it Stiles! Go it as you never went
If Stiles had not shown speed before, he showed it now. Through the en-
tire Markham team he dodged. In the open field, King, the fastest man in the
state, who could do the quarter in fifty, started after him, but as they raced
down the field he gained but little. Stiles dashed across the line and planted
the ball between the posts.
The game was not yet over, one minute remained to play. Markham re-
fused to kick, as is customary to a team that has been scored upon. They
elected to receive the kick. Renolds kicked to Holmes on the ten yard line.
Holmes ran it back to mid field. A forward pass gained twenty yards. A
buck by Holmes gained ten. Then King got away on a trick circling right
end. A touchdown seemed certain. The Markham stand was in an uproar.
Across the Field dashed Stiles. On the live yard line he threw himself forward
in a reckless tackle. I-Ie struck his man badly, bringing him down on his own
head, but saving a score. The pistol sounded as they lay there. Stiles was
knocked out, but his arms had to be forced away from King's legs so tightly
did he hold them.
The next day as Carter was reading the account of the game in the morn-
ing paper, he heard someone sobbing in the bed next to his. I-Ie turned and
saw it was Stiles.
"XVhat is the trouble ?" he asked. "'IYhat are you crying for?"
"It was my fault we lost yesterday. The fellows will never forgive me.
They will tell of it even after I have left college," he said brokenly.
"They will tell of your playing yesterday for some time to come," replied
Carter, "you can bet your last dollar on that."
just then the door opened, and Hlhitney, captain of the team, Coach Han-
ley, and Professor Stevens filed in. The coach was laughing for the First time
"Stiles, old man," said IVhitney, "you played a splendid game yesterday. I
want you to take this as a souvenir of your hrst and last game of college foot-
ball." I-Ie drew from his coat the ball the game had been played with. On
it was marked in white paint "Markham 3, Altamont 7."
"You should have seen him, Carter," said the coach. "After the first
Five minutes he was in every play. Wfhen he caught that pass he dodged
throught just as you used to do, only you were never half as fast as he was
yesterday. King looked as if he were standing still," he added. "VVhen he
scored I could have run out and hugged him. And when he tackled King, I
nearly died from joy."
"XVhat do you mean?-When I scored?-Wlhen I tackled King?-Didn't
they win ?,' asked Stiles. "VVhat are these figures on the ball and all this talk
about my playing? I don't remember a thing after they scored."
"XN'ell, can you beat that," gasped the coach. "Sure we won. I-Iere, take
a look at this,', he said as he handed Stiles the sporting page of the paper that
Carter had been reading.
Across the page ran this heading:
"Altamont wins great game from Markham 7 to 3."
"Sensational run by Stiles turns defeat into victory."
"IVell," Said Stiles at length, half dazed. "I don't remember a thing about
"IVhat are these for?" asked the coach as he noticed the telephone re-
ceivers Carter had used in following the game.
"Professor Stevens had a telephone installed so I could get the returns ot
the game, play by play," said Carter. "W'e were cut off in the first of the game.
After they scored we were connected again. After that everything went fineg
I just closed my eyes and imagined I was playing. As he told me where each
play was going, I could feel myself going right with it. It was so real that I
was all in when the game was over."
Hanley looked first at Carter, then at Stiles in a puzzled fashion, then turn-
ing to Professor Stevens, as if convinced against his will, he said, "Hal, old
boy, there might be something in it after all."

As the boat landed, Princess Elizabeth ordered her maid to I-lavemeyer,
the Porter, get her Coats and bring them to the Lee side of the Parry.
As the boat entered the Harber, Elizabeth, in order to evade Lord Vlfescott,
hastened to the cross Rhodes, Hunting a N-Vaye to Shun the Boldman whose
Power was greater than his Love. ln her haste to escape she waded through
the dreaded Myers of Blackburn to reach Eldridge Wloods, where she re-
Cline-ed on the Green grass and dreamed of her true Love, Sherwood.
ln the interim Lord XVescott had decided to visit Ritson Palace, where
he was warmly greeted by King james and the two Dukes. But when he
related to them the strange disappearance of the Princess and his intention
to Mary Elizabeth, they were enraged, for they, too, were rivals for her Love.
The grooms, Dalby and Martin, brought Christopher and Gogerty, the
two Noble Cole Black steeds. winners of the Derby, and the rivals were to
ride in opposite directions. The one who found her first should Marion a
day in june. Sherwood chose Gogerty, who was XYilder than Christopher,
and rode in a westerly direction. while Raymond rode east and then south,
meeting his rival at the cross Rhodes, near Loring Hlaye. Elizabeth saw
them coming and tried to Dodge, but Sherwood took her in his arms, began

Come and look, Oh son of man!
Draw back thy grasping, clutching hand,
Open thine heart and feed thine eyes,
See how this mystic treasure lies.
Chest of wood so strong and rare,
Silver-bound and carved so fair,
Wfith broken lock, and bolts unfast,
Designed by man in ages past.
Come, push back this heavy lid,
just as our ancient fathers didg
And see what lies in the coffer oldg
Look on the metal, yellow and Cold.
XVhat see you in that ruddy glare,
That makes you stand and blankly stare?
Know you thexcurse that brought man lox
Know you now his eternal foe?
He, with a nod, did turn and ask,
"Goes there a tale with this weird Cask?
The coins are old and possess no date,
But bear rude marks of an ancient state."
He spoke without intending harm,
But seemed to break a magic charmg
The lid flew shut with a violent bang,
The lock fell off, and the bindings rang.
The chest did move, then creak and moan.
It gave a lurch, then ceased to groang
A voice within, though strange and queer
Spoke in tones full bold and clear.
"Satan I am and I find much joy
In fooling man with my yellow toyg
This is the toy, and the toy is gold
This is the story and the story's old.
In an ancient city of power and fame
I-Iappy lived man with honest aim,
A monk made the coffer, now so old,
The city's wealth 'twas to hold.
Joy was theirs, in that glad age,
For love did rule like a wise old sage,
They knew of gold but it mastered none,
They had a god but only one.
Centuries passed and years rolled by,
Man was changed but he knew not why,
The city fell and ruined lay,
The chest was found in the ruins gray.
In the modern city of greed and shame
Man lives now with gold his aim,
The rich own the coffer, I am toldg
The poor man's wealth 'twas built to hold.
Sorrow is theirs in this great age,
For gold is king without a sage,
It quickens the pace, increases speed,
The more man gets, the more his greed.
I-Iis work is to barter, steal, and plot,
To seize from his brother, his brother's lotg
And faster he works from hour to hour,
For real seems his dream of wealth and power
His body he'd sell and e'en his mind-
Just to have his pocket lined,
He loves the feel of heavy gold,
He loves to see its even mold.
Little he heeds nor seems to care
If he be caught in my golden snare,
Does man not know his coming fate?
Does he not know my realm of hate?
As for the chest, so old and worn-
In the ruins 'twas found one early morn,
But over this casket I threw a spell,
I took the gold and used it well.
The gold in the chest appeared to stay,
And man it fools to this very day,
You saw the gold, but none was there,
'Twas but a trick, an illusion fair.
My story is finished, and I must go,
These things are true, I made them so,
Few worship God, tho', in God there's light,
All worship gold, for gold is Might."
The lid did quiver, then suddenly rise,
A light burst forth, which dazzled our eyes,
Brilliant it grew, then slowly died,
VVe examined the chest. lTwas empty inside.

An Unusual Punishment
BIG bay horse came galloping across a held and stopped some
yards from a high hedge. The hedge ran along an unfrequented road.
There was a remarkably pretty girl on the horse's back. She was debating
whether to jump her horse over the hedge or not. The young lady had
bright brown eyes and a wealth of blond hair, her riding habit was of the
same color as her horseg the harmony was perfect.
There came to her ears the snap of a whip, then a crash of the shafts
as a horse fell on them. Someone yelled, "Git up! or I'll kill yer!"
Immediately the big horse bounded forward, at his gentle rider's touch
of the quirt, and jumped the high hedge. The same quirt that had decended
so gently on the horse's Hanks a moment before, struck the man's cheek
with not the same show of gentleness behind it.
"I-.low can you strike a poor animal so cruelly?" the young lady asked
with some show of emotion in her voice. "W'hy did you do it? And what
is your name?"
"I do not believe I need answer those questions," the young man
answered, having recovered his composure slightly after leaping to the
other side of the fallen animal.
"You are impertinent! I will prosecute you," the young lady said,
with all her self possession gone.
"I was thinking of doing the same to you," he answered with 2111
"You brute!" she exclaimed, as her horse started up the road.
Her self-possession returned. The thought that she might be wrong
came to her. Should she return? She checked her horse and turned him.
No, she would not return, for there he stood watching her with the same
exasperating smile on his face. just then he raised his hand to his cheek.
He scowled, for he felt that the skin was broken and the blood was trickling
from the wound.
As the girl turned a be11d in the road at a swift gallop he set to work to
raise the horse and mend the broken shaft. I-le handled the horse with
gentleness. Had his thoughts of it changed?
That night Miss Barnsby entered the dining room of the fashionable
country hotel with her aunt and a girl friend. She bore no sign of her ad-
venture of the afternoon but her brain was throbbing with it. She attempted
to converse with her companions consistently.
After a few moments a young man entered. I-Ie was tall, dark, and alto-
gether a striking person. Could it be possible? Yes, there it was. The red
mark diagonally across the left cheek.
She forced herself into composure as she did not desire her friends to
know of it. The dinner passed slowly for her. Afterwards they went to the
ballroom of the hotel where dancing was in progress. Many of her friends were
out that night. I-Iow could she help it? Miss Barnsby was continually evading
him, and finally after she seen that he perceived her she fled to her rooms.
Many tiresome days followed for her as she did not wish to meet him, and
yet her curiosity would not permit her to leave the country. Miss Barnsby was
not the kind to leave the puzzle unsolved. Had she been in the wrong? What
did the young man think of her? E
One afternoon, about a week after the adventure, Miss Barnsby was sitting
at her window reading. She happened to glance up, and there across the lawn
was a cat crouching behind a bush. Its tail was waving and its whole body
quivering. It was apparent that the prey was about to come within reach, and
just at that moment it did-a robin. Miss Barnsby watched the cat play with
the soon-wounded robin, by cuffing it around, and running after it when it had
happened too far away. The same anger that had been aroused when she had
heard the old, dilapidated horse being treated so harshly, rose anew. She im-
mediately went to her dresser, took out a small pearl-handled revolver, ran
downstairs and out across the lawn.
Miss Barnsby crept within a few yards of the scene of the tragedy,
pointed her small revolver at the cat, turned her head away, closed her eyes,
and then fired. There was a yell, but not a cat's yell. The cat went scampering
"Chl what have I done ?" she sobbed as her former sufferer came limping
into view from among some trees with fishing tackle in his hands.
NVhat do you think I have done now?" the young man asked her.
"Are you hurt badly? That was not meant for you. I am so sorry."
'That it was not meant for me ?" he asked, laughing, "But no, the bullet
only made a surface wound below my knee."
Miss Barnsby persuaded him to permit her to bandage it. This neces-
sitated a hasty trip to her room for bandages and an antiseptic. XVhile she was
going and returning his question, "XN'hat do you think I have done now?" kept
coming before her. She knew her after-thoughts of her other injury to him
were true. And she resolved to ask him of it when she had finished bandaging.
H50 you really thought I did it? I-Iow cruel of you," he later answered. "I
will tell you how it really happened. I chanced to be coming toward the road.
from fishing in a near-by stream, and when I reached the place the old horse
had fallen, just as the farmhand raised his arm to strike the animal another
blow with his whip. He had just yelled, 'Get up! or I'll kill youf or something
to that effect. I leaped at the man and struck him. He did not wait to argue
the matter but started in the direction he had just come from, and at no slow
speed. Then you came upon your fiery steed and struck me, who had struck the
man, who had struck the horse."
"I-Iow can you ever forgive me? If I had only- seen the Heeing man."
"lN'ell, it is in the past, let us forget it," he pleaded. "The punishment will
be that you will have to come canoeing with me this afternoon."
Two weeks later an engagement was announced among the few guests at
the fashionable summer hotel. I

As slow our ship her foamy track
Against the wind was cleaving,
I looked behind where stake and rack
Caused tortures past believing.
We were of Drakels Atlantic fleet,
A Spanish town we raided,
NVe fired their town and sank their fleet-
Our blood for gold we traded.
Gone are the thunih-screw and the brand-
We ripped them from their places.
The Spanish whelp, Don Ferdinand
A gallows tree now graces.
And now our ships we homeward turn, f
Their holds are Hlled with treasure.
For 21 sight of English downs we yearn,
And a life of English pleasure.
JAMES ALLAN, June ,IQ.
O'er all the earth the herald of the night,
VVith feet soft clad in rays of setting sun,
And with a trumpet formed of moonbeams bright,
Proclaims the reign of darkness has begun.
Twilight, the fav'rite of the night's mild Queen,
In soft and sombre gown of shadowy gray,
Xllith noiseless step, and quiet, and peaceful niien,
Points out the path to earth,-the Milky Wfay.

On the way back to the Ere, Fay was strangely silent. As soon as we had
built up the fire, however, he commenced to speak.
"Kennon," he said, "it's mighty silly, but I should have told you before.
There is an old Indian legend about this valley. They say that a spirit horse-
man had staked off the place. The Indians give it a wide berth. According to
the legend, this horseman carried off all trespassers with a speed that made them
feel as if they were burning up. At the end of two days he dropped them, rav-
ing mad. Twenty-four hours after, they died. Also, any horses that saw this
charger of the devil, died with the symptoms you have just witnessed. The
Spaniards call this valley El jornado, in full, El jornado del Muerto, and gave it
a wide berth. Pringle believed the stuff."
Fay laughed, but it was a hollow laugh, a Frankenstein laugh, and it aroused
no mirth in me.
XfVe sat there until dawn. Then we struck north. At the end of each day, we
ran into a mining camp. Wfith two incredulous miners and an Indian guide, we
returned. Wfe reached camp on the second day. There in the ashes of the fire,
One of the miners turned him over. I can never describe the look that
was on his face! The Indian sprang to his saddle and sped away across the
sands, recognizing in Pringle a victim of the horseman. I-Ie had made it! El
jornado del Muerto, the journey of the Dead Man!
LEROY MCINTYRE, December '18
Forty Miles in One Jump
CERTAIN man and his wife, who were making a trip to I-Iudson Bay,
learned many amusing Indian legends from their Indian guide.
One night, around a small camp-fire, the Indian guide solved two problems
which have no doubt puzzled many a white, by telling a legend of his tribe,
"My father tellnm me this, him father tellum IIIIII. Once Great Manitou
makum all animal same size as Injun. Deer him leg short so him no can
run fast, and Injun catchum and killum. Pretty soon Great Manitou look
down-no deer. So him takum deer and smooth down him hind legs and
makum longer than his front legs. Then deer run very fast and Injun no
Great Manitou mak him too big animal, big as Injun. I-Iim jump forty
miles one jump and suck Injun blood one suck. Pretty soon Great Manitou
look down-no Injun. So he takum animal and smooth him down with him
hand, and smooth him down, and smooth him down. Bimeby him very small.
You know what you callum? You callum Heal"
HENRY SNYDER, December '18
E1 jornado Del Muerto
HREF, of us, Pringle, Fay, and myself, started for the west. Pringle, a
native of what is now New Mexico, gave us some valuable hints. Accord-
ing to him, our shortest path lay through a narrow valley, half desert, but with
a few shallow lakes here and there. As we approached this valley, Pringle
became more and more morose, starting at every unaccustomed sound. At camp
that night, he wasn't himself, but would not enlighten us. Suddenly Fay
laughed out loud, "I know what's eating you," he said, "It's that Indian legend."
I pressed Fay for it, but he only laughed and said he' would explain when
he wasn't so tired. Then he turned in. I was following him, when Pringle
sprang up with a short cry. His face was fairly ashen, his eyes glared and his
breath came in gasps. Now I knew Pringle, and he wasn't a man to quail at
danger. I-Ie stood for a while listening, and then turned for his blankets.
"I guess I'll hit the hay again," he remarked apologetically.
As I rolled myself up he added, "By the way, Kennon, you didn't hear any-
thing tonight, did you?',
I shook my head.
"XN'ell, that's good. I guess I was mistaken."
I was tired, and after pondering the matter over for a while, I dropped
asleep, secure in the thought that nothing could harm us here.
I don't know how long I'd slept, or what woke me up. I Came to with a
start and heard the saddest sound there is, the sound of a man sobbing. I sat
up and looked around. The moon was setting and the tire was low. I threw
a branch on and turned to Pringle.
I-Ie was lying on his face, his frame convulsed with sobs. As I turned to
him, I heard a rushing of air, and yet didnit feel it. The tire crackled and
cddied under the strange draft, and yet no sand was stirring! Pringle sprang
to his feet, and, with a cry, shook the blankets from him, and disappeared into
the dark. The next moment I heard the loud whistle of a horse, the whirlwind
of galloping hoofs, and then, as if from a distance. came Pringle's voice, rapidly
"This tier-y sp-ee-ewdl l'm hur-n-ing! Oh !-oh! This fiery
"I7ay!i' I yelled, "For God's sake, Fay, wake up! Faylu
He staggered out in time to hear Pringle's dying words and the mad gallop
of hoofs. I seized my rifle and, lighting a branch of mesquite in the tire, ran to
the spot where Pringle had disappeared. Pay grabbed his gun and followed me.
There in the sand were the footprints of a huge horse. I stood staring dumbly
at them, but Fay grabbed a canteen and started for the horses. I turned to
follow him, and a shout soon brought me to the first horse, writhing as if in
pain, foaming at the mouth, and his eyes glaring. As Fay dropped to the
ground to examine him, the horse expired with a linal convulsion. Wle ran to
the others. They were already dead.
A Mountain Stream
Down from the mountain the stream comes rushing,
Then as it turns, still whirling and twirling,
Dashing and splashing the rocky shore,
Suddenly it descends with a mighty roarg
Never ceasing, but always advancing,
Finally,-grumbling, rumbling, and tumbling
Into a lake, resounding long,
Plunges the stream still roaring its song.
TED VVRIGHT, june '19,
The Toilers and He That Reviled
VVith Apologies to Froissart.
ND it came to pass that the fifteenth day of the month of November in the
year nineteen hundred and sixteen was declared as Labor Day for the
land, and the Chief Pharisee spaketh unto the multitude saying, "Give ye unto
me, volunteers for the Clean-up Committee" and these were given unto him.
And upon arrival of the glorious day the citizens began to labor in the
cities, the walls whereof were cleaned until they shone with unusual lustre. All
litter that cluttered up the highways was gathered up and each citizen took it
upon himself to sweep out his dwelling, unearthing many valuable manuscripts
and stiles by so doing.
And it so happened that after mid-day, the multitude was divided, and those
who deemed themselves pure like the summer heavens collected papers, apple-
cores, and bits of sun-dried piecrust in the suburbs, and consumed them with
Fire while those who held themselves as unstained as the morning sun proceeded
to the ancient battlefield out side the cities, and gathering together its battered
arms Qhockey sticksj carried them off in metalic chariots.
And all this time the other Pharisees and women stood 'round about and
judged the several multitude as they strove to purify their land. And when the
toilers were allowed to toil no longer, they came .back into the cities pro-ud of
Then the high priests, who had remained all this while in idleness, held a
council, and awarded the victory to those who held themselves as unstained as
the morning sun, saying unto them, "The purpose of both sides has been ful-
filled to its farthest extent, but the zeal of the Gods has surpassed that of the
And then up spaketh one of the multitude who had labored not, "Nay, sirs,
ye err, for the labor of these dogs has been to no purpose. I fell and dirtied my
garments even as my friend that tripped yesterday before these dogs had
scattered the dust before their brooms and laden the air with dangerous microbes.
Yea, our land is still filthy in the suburbs."
Therefore the Golds looked at the Blues, and the Blues stared at the Golds,
and great melancholy fell upon the multitude. Then straightway spake the chief
saying, "Let the reviler hang from the walls of our city by his worthless neck."
And there was forthwith exceeding rejoicing and many of the multitude offered
to undertake the task.

King George and Merry England
CC ALT, who goes there!"
The wind whispered soft tales of long ago through the trees of the
ancient forest. A khaki-clad figure standing in the darkness grasped his rifle
more tightly, and repeated the command. A crackling in some near-by thicket
was the only answer. .
"God," he murmured, "Ain't it 'bout time the patrol was comin'?" Then
aloud, "Come out o' there!"
No reply. The moon, running swiftly through the sky, disappeared behind
a cloud, and all was thrown into darkness. Now and then, as if to break the
awful monotony, a shell would shriek in the distance. Suddenly, as if moved by
that animal instinct which tells the wild beast that the hunter is near, the man
whirled around, but too late. Hands were brusquely laid on his shoulders, and
he was borne to the ground. As he looked up, he saw the helmeted figures of
the Germans. Rough hands picked him up, and a stout, red-faced lieutenant
spoke to him in broken English.
"Be quiet, und notting to you vill happen."
Leaving behind them a small band to guard the prisoner, the company
advanced on the English camp.
As he sat there among his guards, it all dawned upon him. They would
attack the camp when all of his comrades were asleep, and from the rear! He
was the only person who knew of it, and yet, what could he do? He was
unbound, but six rifles pointed tow'ards him. It made the blood boil in his
veins. 'iXVas there no way to let them know?", the thought, and racked his
worried brain for some scheme. Suddenly he straightened up.
"Look!", he cried, pointing into the dark-ness. The men started up and
looked away. After such a silence this one word startled them, though they
could not understand it. As he spoke the word, the captive wrenched the gun
from the hands of one of his captors, turned, and fled.
"Gott! Halt!" cried the astonished men. Then five rifles spoke, illuminat-
ing for a moment the blackness. The moon came silently from its hiding-place,
and beaming through the trees, revealed the swaying figure of the Britisher.
XVith the last strength of a dying man, he drew himself up to attention and
gasped, "King George and England! God! l'm gone !" Then he fell heavily to
the ground. The bullets had hit their mark. The pale moon cast a silvery gleam
on the dead man's smiling face, and in the distance the blare of bugles sounded
the attack. The British had not been surprised, for the shots which had killed
Private O'Connell had warned the camp. The man was happy in death, for
had not he saved his comrades? NVhat better death could a soldier ask for?
The moon lost itself in the scurrying clouds, and the corpse was shrouded in
blackness. Through the trees the wind murmured a dirge to the dead, the owl
gave his doleful cry, the sound of gun fire came through the night, a last salute
to the dead, and then, silence!
EDXYARD RICHARDSON, December '17,
A Bit of Speculation
CC NYTHING in sight yet, Jess? I dont' think the old nag will hold out
much longer." The speaker was a short, dark man. He and his com-
panion, who was tall and lanky, but who resembled him in features, was driving
along a deserted country road. Their wagon was dilapitated and the horse
seemed to be on his last legs. In spite of the fact that it was early in the morn-
ing, the poor beast was tired out.
"Farm house down beyond that bend," drawled the other, pointing with his
whip. 'KI guess we'd better stop there for breakfast."
A few moments later the wagon pulled up in front of the farmhouse, and
the men descended from the high seat. It was a small house with a large,
neatly-kept vegetable garden around it. Jess and his friend entered the yard.
The latter seemed rather nervousg but .less advanced boldly and knocked on the
door. It was opened by a stout, middle-aged woman, who looked at her early
"Morning, Madame," said .less gallantly, as he removed his cap. "May
we have the honor of breakfasting with you? VVe have ridden hard all night,
and are tired and hungry."
The woman looked at him for a moment, but evidently assured of his hon-
"Sure, come on in. I ain't got much this mornin' but such as it is, you're
welcome to it."
They went into the house. The breakfast was very good, and both fell to
with such heartiness that the woman was amazed. Between mouthfuls .less
talked to her.
"Nice little garden you got out there, Nlrslf'
"Brown," she supplied. "Yes, it is nice, ain't it? lim afraid it won't be
nice much longer though."
"W'hy, how's that?"
"XVell, you see, this farm is mortgaged. l been tryin' to pay it off ever
since Dave died. He's my boy that was killed in the war. But Mr. Atkins, the
man what's holdin' it, is comin' today. If I don't pay him every cent, he'll put
me out, because he did that to the Merrills, the people that lived in the next
farm, when they couldn't pay all their rent money. He's an awful grasping man.
And he's mean where money's concerned. I donlt know what I'll do,-I
haven't a dollar to my name." '
jess looked interested.
"How much is it, Mrs. Brown 7, he asked.
"Four hundred dollars," the response came tearfully.
The other man looked uneasily at jess, who nodded at him reassuringly,
then reached down in his pocket and pulled out a roll of bills that made the
good woman's eyes bulge.
"Here you are, Mrs. Brown. Not a word now," he added warningly as
she started to thank him. "I think we'll he goin' now, jim." He started for the
door, followed by his companion. Suddenly he turned.
"Uh, by the way, Mrs. Brown, when's your man comin'?',
About half-past ten.'l
"X'Vell, good-bye, and thanks for the breakfast."
God bless you !" breathed Mrs. Brown fervently.
Wlhen they were seated on the wagon once more, jim turned to him.
"XfVell, you'1'e a nice one!" he spluttered. f'VVhat's the matter? Turnin'
friend 0' the poor? Half of that money's mine and you'll have to pay me. I
did as much o' that job as you, Jess James, and if it hadn't been for me the
watchman would a' seen us, an' you'd be behind the bars this minute."
"lt's all right, jim. Don't get excited," said the other eooly.
"Oh, yes it's all right. But where's my two hundred ?"
Jess made no reply, but took out his watch and looked at it.
"Twenty-five after," he said. "XVe'll have to turn in here." He jerked the
reins sharply and the horse turned to the left and pulled them through an open-
ing in the bushes that lined the road.
"XVhoa, there!" shouted "Here's where we stop, jim. Now get
down and make it quick. Got everything ready? I'll tie the horsef,
A few moments later the grasping Mr. Atkins took his leisurely way down
the road. He had just left the little farmhouse, and he was rustling the mort-
gage-money in his pocket. At a turn in the road two masked men sprang out,
knocked him senseless, and relieved him of all his valuables.
Hours later the james boys were seated in the back room of a small saloon
in the next state, whither they had fled that morning. Jess sighed contendedly.
"I call that a pretty good clay's work, jim," he said. "XfVe got a hundred
dollars' interest on our loan."

San Carlos De Carmelo"
A vale close by the ocean
Opens out on Carmel Bay,
NYhere white sands meet the water
And gleam 'neath the sun's bright ray.
The calm, blue waters stretching
To Lobus' rugged height,
Relieet its fieece-crowned mountain
As Crystal mirrors might.
The peaks that skirt the valley.
Are rocky, rough, and steep,
Like great and hoary guardians
Their silent watch they keep.
In this vale, close by the ocean,
Where all is now a dream,
'Miclst Helds of rippling grasses,
A Mission reigns supreme.
"San Carlos de Carmelo,"
'Twas called in Clays gone by,
So named by Spanish Fathers
XVho 'neath its altar lie.
The wall and time-worn buttress,
Now falling in decay,
Gnce shadowed Indian warriors
And festive Spaniards gay.
The lonely bell in the belfry,
So silent now and sad,
Recalls old times at the Mission,
Xifhen its peal was always glad.
It sees again the Indians
XVl1o came from far and near,
XVhen sounded its clear-toned ringing,
The Fathers' words to hear.
The cloister walls have crumbled,
The stairways, dropt apart,
And yet, this spot, still hallowed,
Is dear to every heart.

l-HS little journal, the second edition of the "Cub" to be printed, is pub-
lished in an attempt to convey to you, the students of University
High, some idea of the excellent work in literature, art, and athletics that
is daily being done in your midst. This publication, a radical departure
from the ordinary type of high school periodical, is compiled with three
ideals in mindg namely, that the "Cub" shall contain only the best work in
literature and art that the school is capable of producing, that all con-
tributions be accepted on a competitive basis, giving' every member of the
student body an equal chance to see their work in printg and that the
journal be made as nearly self-supporting as possible, without the aid of
Don't you think that a paper of this kind is more truly representative
of the school than one in which merely cartoons and athletic events are
featured? Upon this type of periodical, as they are published by almost all
the high schools around us, the student body loses approximately 2002,
per copy. Surely it is better to cut down the number of photographs
and cartoons in our paper rather than have such a state of affairs exist.
Besides, the Student Council has so many other ways to spend the small
amount in the treasury each term that it should seem but logical to
make the "Cub" break as nearly even as possible.
And about the athletic write-ups. Athletic success is a great thing, and
one which keeps up enthusiasm to the top-notch, but still, one doesn't feel
very happy, even if he does make the team, if he Hunks in his studies. To
reverse the statement, one who fails to have success in the athletic way
can still console himself with the fact that his marks in scholarship are all
that they should be. ln a few words, the "big ideal, i11 coming to school is
not to make your block letter, but to get a little "book-learninf" Donlt
you think, therefore, that is a bit more natural to make efforts towards
literary perfection constitute the greater part of the "Cub,'l rather than
accounts of eiorts towards athletic perfection?
The Popular Student---Hovv to Become One
ITH a little observation you will see that the most popular
students are those who are "hustlersg" always wide-awake,
ambitious, and ready to take a hand in any activity.
How can you be this sort of a person? You don't have to be. Be
yourselfg but try to take a little interest in what is going on around youg
don't let the other 'fellow do it allg get in and helpg do your share. In
a little while you will not have to force yourself to take interest in the
diferent school activitiesg the interest will come naturally. Then you can
be assured that you have a little "pep" in your system. Keep up the good
work and you will find that no longer will you have to hunt for friendsg
they will hunt you: they will be drawn to you, a vigorous personality.
Do11't make the mistake of confining "pep" to your school life alone.
Put "pep" in everything you clog whether it be at school, at home, or in
business. A "pepful" student at school is the fellow who "runs things",
who is captain of his team, who is leader of his class in seholarshipg who
has influence among his fellows. At home, he is not the sort to loaf
around and read a book and wish that "something exciting would happen Q"
he is out in the garden cutting the lawn, or hard at work painting the
porch. He doesn't wait for something exciting to happeng he goes out and
makes everything that is happening exciting every minute of the time. ln
the business world the person who does not put vigor and enthusiasm into
every transaction is a failure: while the person with "pep" is bound to
succeed. He is so full of "ginger'l that he can't be kept downg he is right
on the job every minute.
It should not be necessary to remind you of all thisg you must see for
yourself what a splendid thing "pep" is to have. This is the best time in
your life to acquire this asset, for a man who tries to do so after twenty
years of his life spent in comparative inactivity, both mentally and phy-
sically, has a hard task before him. Look back over the time you have spent
in high school. Have you really put as much "pep', as you should have in
your actions, or have you acquired a habit of doing everything you do
mechanically, and under compulsion? lf you have, wake up. Don't be
A Bouquet for Ourselves
AVE you ever stopped to think of the many advantages we enjoy
here at University, simply because the school is so small? W'e are
indeed fortunate in many ways.
The "group habit" is the curse of every large high school, or institu-
tion of any kind. You have seen, in the large schools near us, how the
"shop gang", fellows who simply take a straight shop course, go around
together, never show up at games or rallies, and seem to form a separate
part of the school. This is the "group habit" in its broadest sense as it
applies to school life. lkfhen conditions are analyzed, it will be discovered
that most schools are really divided into numberless cliques: groups of
individuals who "pal" together, snobhishly ignoring the other schclars.
Although high school fraternities were abolished long ago, the "frat"
spirit exists as strongly as it ever did.
The gods give us joy, for in our little high school we seem to have
escaped the curse. The factional spirit may dominate the schools around
us, but the students of University stand one and all for "The School. under
the Leadership of the Xlfisest and the Best."
The Gentle Art of Bluffing
OME of us are born bluffers, some schieve bluffing, and some have
bluffing thrust upon us. Very few of us are born bluffersg some of
us achieve bluffing, while perhaps most of us have bluffing thrust upon us.
Bluffers are divided into two classes, confirmed or veteran bluffers
and novices, or those who use the art only occasioully. On the whole very
few of us really desire to be called "a good blufferf' Among students the
chronic bluffer is not admired at all, for bluffing is only pretense and no one
likes a hypocrite. Among the teachers, once a reputation of being a bluffer
is acquired, a person is "queered." ln fact, every time a person bluffs, he
loses some of his self-respect, for when he bluffs he tacitly admits that
he is deficient not only in the knowledge required but in moral courage
In the last place, hluffing is cowardly, for it admits that the bluffer
lacks the courage to "stand up and take his medicine." Therefore, study and
succeed or don't study and 'Alluulcfl but don't bluff. It does you no good,
and lowers everyone's opinion of you in the bargain.

QA Word From the Senior Crab
HE rallies which have been held in this institution of learning are
a crimeg an awful example of general Hpeplousnessf' In the hrst
place, why not elect a yell-leader at the beginning of every term, instead
of leaving the calling of rallies to the captain of the ping-pong team, or the
president of the sewing circle, who contents himself with ringing the bell at
12:30 and calmly announcing that there will be a "rally" on the front steps.
Half a dozen fellows and about eleven girls gather around and the rally
finally begins. Five minutes are spent trying to get somebody to lead a few
yells. Then the speeches begin.
About eleven hockey games are going on all around and the audiences
attention seems divided between these attractions and the entertainment of
the freshman comedian who is making a name for himself by shooting paper
wads at the girls and making witty remarks about the speakers. Some
carpenters upstairs in the new building drop some lumber. Both of the
audience laugh, and the orator gets "fussedg" his retreat is covered by the
"yell leader" who comes out and gives "six for the University High
medicine ball team," accompanied by a wild whirling of his arms. After he
has yelled himself hoarse, the next speaker begins. The bell rings in the
middle of his speech and the "rally" is over. On the way upstairs this
enthusiastic dialogue is heard:
"Some pep at the rally this noon, eh?"
"Sure, heard all about it."
Let's get in and do something about this sort of thing. There must be
some solution. 'What about having a rally committee appointed whose duty
shall be to see that the rallies are carried out with the enthusiasm and "jazz"
which should accompany such a proceeding? lf it "can,t be done" as some say,
let's cut them out. But anything rather than these farcical attempts to get

THE 1916 FOOTBALL TEAM N
The Football Season
LTHOUGH there are no lQI6 football champions to proclaim and not
many victories to celebrate, the team "came through." Starting out with
a previous seasonls failure to erase, the fellows worked hard and faithfully. Not
a word can be said against them, although "they came, they saw, and"-they lost.
A series of 635, 9-6 scores shows how we fought. In what was considered the
l.ig game of the season, we defeated the High School of Commerce 28-3.
Many mistakes were made in the two seasons of play. An old saying runs
something like this, "a fool makes the same mistake many times, but a wise
man only once." Let us hope that we are the wise man and not the fool.
Probably the most glaring error was in the poorly regulated coaching
system. During the past season there were three coaches. Individually they
were all that could be wished, but collectively their different systems resulted in
more or less confusion to the players. The fellows would learn something from
one coach, only to have it contradicted the next day by one of the other coaches.
Surely no team can learn Rugby by that method. Do not misunderstand me,
and think that the coaches were not good. They were exceptionally good, and
the team is unable sufhciently to commend them for the earnest efforts they made
for the team, and for the school. lVe are greatly indebted to Mr. Newby, Ike
Krone, and Sam Pleasant, our coaches.
The other notable defects may be summed up in a few words: a wonderful
defense more than offset by a poor offense. If we could only have developed a
scoring machine, if only Dame Fortune would have smiled on us in one game.
But such was not to be our lot, for game after game we fell before inferior
teams by small scores.
Let us forget the past. Next season looms before us full of uncertainty.
Shall we play American or shall we play Rugby? This question will be answered
before the first call to practice. No matter where the tide turns, get in and
back your team to the limit. If it be American learn the game and play it
fairly. If it be Rugby-why, with fourteen "vets" and a healthy batch of
"small fry" to pick from, with the past season's mistakes to prolit by, with a
bigger and better student body for a backing, and with "Dutch" and "VVhiskey"
to lead, the team will shake the school from its athletic lethargy and show the
world how to light.

The school, and especially the football team, is deeply indebted to the
Leland Stanford jr. University for its unusual kindness in presenting the team
with eighteen tickets to the Santa Clara rugby game.

Four men shone particularly this season. Many showed Flashes of
brilliancy but Porter, Gilsenan, Reed and Wlright played consistent ball in all
the games. Porter, first-Five, and Manager-elect, successfully. imitated Roy
Fowler and Charlie Austin. His long, swerving dashes to goals were repeatedly
executed, and he scored in almost every game. Dutch Gilsenan led the pack in
a sensational manner. He is undoubtedly one of the best forwards around the
bay and the team showed their appreciation of his work by electing him skipper
for next year. Reed, the Eddie Mahan of the squad, accomplished remarkable
things at full-back. Wlatch him next season.

The football team of '16 and the entire student body certainly owes a debt
of gratitude to Captain Don XVright, who has directed the aniairs of the team
in a way which has brought the best results possible. Not only did 'lTogo" play
a fastpconsistent game throughout the season. but he scored in almost every
game, He kept up the best of good spirit throughout the season, despite defeat,
and earned the respect and admiration of every fellow who played under him.
The Student Co-operative Council
NYC years and a half ago, when the school first started, the students wanted
to have a student hody government. After much discussion the faculty
decided not to have the usual form of student government, but to have a council
presided over hy the principal and consisting of representatives from each
high school major room. The council was an experiment last year, but it has
now passed the experimental stage and has become the established student
body government of the school. Last term the Council showed its interest in
all the activities of the school by not only supporting our victorious crew, but
THE FALL '16 CRENV

also doing its utmost toward making the Shakesperian Pageant a big success. It
showed its democratic spirit by fostering the athletics, and supporting the
English department in its work.
This term the school's activities have been confined almost entirely to ath-
letics. The Council's prompt purchase of the suits for the football team showed
the few fellows who turned out for football that the school had not entirely
forgotten them. The inter-class activities have also had their share of support,
a cup being put up for the girls, inter-class race. Activities of the school other
than athletic, have been very few, the only one of any importance to come before
the Council being the publication of the "Cub" Thus it is easily seen that the
student government of this school works for the good of every activity in the
school, and that the Student Co-operative Council merits loyal support.
CHRISTOPHER -IENKS, '18.
NCE again the L'niversity lligh School Crew is triumphant. The Lake
championship and aquatic honors are once more ours. lt had
previously been decided to omit crew from the regular list of sports for
the fall term, but when a Stockton trip and several cups loomed over the
horizon, the school, with the old time loyalty, rallied to the support of its
oarsmen. Real work commenced about the Erst of September in preparation
for the Regatta which was to be held on the twenty-eighth of the following
month. Four crews entered the contest. and. by the process of elimination
in preliminary races, two crews were to be picked for the finals.
Vocational High School, for the Hrst time, put a boat load of
huskies on the lake, and won its three preliminary races, and entered the
finals. ln our first race of the season, this crew defeated our Blue and Gold
men by a half a boat length. A misfortune like this never quells Uni-
versity spirit. This defeat, the first the school ever' suffered, only put an
extra amount of fight in our men so that when the race with Berkeley
High came, the University crew led to the finish by ive lengths. It was
then necessary to beat Technical in order to come back at Vocational in the
finals. In one of the best races of the season, the University High School
crew took the honors from 'Technical by a narrow margin of three feet.
A cup now seemed in sight. Only two days before the regatta, the
"l3ulletin,'l which was presenting the cups, refused to go on with the deal,
and left the crews with nothing for which to' work. Pennants were im-
mediately provided by the city so that the champions should have something
to show for their endeavors.
The twenty-eighth brought with it beautiful weather and high hopes of
victory. These hopes were soon realized. From the Hrst shot of the gun
to the time the flags were passed, the University High School Crew
displayed its superior form and crossed the line three boat lengths in advance
of the Vocational huskies.

Amidst much enthusiasm the champions completed their successful
day at a banquet at the ,Key Route lun, given by Mr. Nartin. Plans and
preparations were immediately set on foot for the Stockton trip the following
Saturday. Everyone was greatly elated over our pirates' unequalled record,
and looked forward to further honors on the San Joaquin.
At six-forty-five on the morning of November fourth, eight machines
met at Twenty-second and lflroadway, where the crew and many loyal sup-
porters departed for Stockton. Upon arriving at their destination a few
hours later, the machines were directed to the Stockton High School where
a most hospitable welcome awaited. ln the morning a game between Stock-
ton l-ligh and Modesto was witnessed. At noon an excellent lunch was
served in the l-ligh School Cafeteria. A team from the Oakland High
Schools was picked to play the Stockton team, and a very exciting exhibition
of rugby took place, in which the home team was the victor. Following this
the crowd of onlookers proceeded to Lake Yosemite, where the different
aquatic events were to be staged. Here again the University crew proved
itself invincible by defeating, in the drizzling rain, a picked crew from
Vocational and Technical. lin the final race of the day a picked crew of all
the best rowers present finished three boat-lengths behind the Blue and
The crew was royally entertained by the Stockton fellows at their
homes for dinner, and then a delightful dance was held at the school "gym,"
The whole trip was one of great pleasure, and we greatly appreciate the
hospitality shown by Stockton.
VVith the winning of the Regatta and races at Stockton, we feel certain
that the crew's work at this odd time of the year has been entirely worth
while, for it shows more than ever what the University High School, and more
especially what the crew, under the leadership of Captain Martin, can and will
do in the future.
NORRIS NASH, June '17.
HE fall basketball season seems to have been rather unsuccessful, as far as
our team is concerned, on account of the lack of a gymnasium for practice.
lmmediately after the close of the football season, a practice was called at the
Home Club gymnasium, and about a dozen men out of the thirty enrolled
showed up. A few other practices have been held, from time to time since then,
and although there have been few men at hand, the team has made a fairly
good showing, under the able coaching of Captain "Dutch" Gilsenan.
The First practice game was lost to Richmond High School on the nght of
Friday, the twenty-fourth. Although playing a good game from start to finish,
our men were handicapped by lack of weight, lack of practice, and injuries
received during the game. "Dutch," playing at center, a position to which he is
a stranger, was'the star of the game for U. H. S., while Walter Reed also gave
the spectators many thrills.

THIEI IHONDAY CLU1.
A line spring season has been arranged for the team by Manager Andresen,
and games have been scheduled with almost every good-sized high school around
the bay. This, combined with the fact that arrangements are being made for
our school to enter the Alameda County Athletic League and the California
lnterscholastic Federation, thus enabling us to compete for the state Inter-
scholastic Championship, should be a big drawing-card for basketball in the
spring. Don't forget that basketball is one of the school's major sports, and
should be as well or better supported than any other form of athletics. So,
when Manager "Cutey" calls for volunteers in january, let's all "go out" and
make the IQI7 basketball team one which will gain a formidable reputation for
itself, and carry the Blue and Gold to victory in the league.
The Monday Club
T XVAS. the spring term of the year 1915. The University High School
had seen one successful semester. As yet, however, no clubs had been
organized, and when Mrs. Robertson suggested that the girls should start
one, everyone took up the idea with enthusiasm. lt was decided that the club
should meet on Monday and should be called the Monday Club. This organi-
zation has now seen its fourth term. Wfe have grown rapidly this semester.
Wfhen fourteen new members were enrolled, our membership reached a total of
thirty-three in all. These members have tried to make the club a success-
and they have succeeded.
At the meetings, which occur each alternate Monday, business is first dis-
posed of, and then an interesting program is presented. The Club has
also enjoyed several social affairs. Among those given this term was a special
program arranged to welcome the new members. A costume party was given
by the club on November eleventh at the home of Marguerita Armstrong.
On the Twenty-fourth of November the club, under the direction of
Mrs. Robertson, gave a very successful jinks in honor of the Freshman
girls. Everybody came prepared to laugh and eat, and did both in a highly
satisfactory manner. '
The omcers this term are: President, Dorothy Dukesg Vice-President,
Eleanor Daviesg Secretary, Bernice Stratton, Treasurer, Lucille Craig.

GIRLS' CREW WHICH REPRESENTED UNIVERSITY IN TI-IE BULLETIN REGATTA
The Girls' Crew
ARLY in the term about thirty girls were organized into a rowing club
under Eleanor Davies as captain, and Madge McDermed and Marguerita
Armstrong as coxswains. For a while no distinction was made between the
crews. The girls showed a keen interest by being at the lake for every practice.
To stir up a spirit of rivalry the girls drew lots for two crews, to be called the
Blues and the Golds, and the Student Council appropriated Five dollars for a
cup which was to be a trophy for the victorius crew.
Un November 9th the Golds won the interclass row by two boat lengths and
on the following Tuesday the Blues showed a line losing spirit by giving a picinc
spread to the winners. The aifair was highly enjoyed by both crews.
In the regatta of October 28th our crew, picked from the Blues and Golds,
made a good showing considering the unevenness of the start.
Wfith more steady practice these crews promise to be the best on the lake.
lf they improve over this term as they did over the last, they stand a splendid
chance in the Enquire Regatta in April.

Our School Library
UR school library has grown rapidly during the last two years. From a
number of hooks in a bookcase, inuthe hall, under the charge of Miss
Breck, it grew to a small library, under the supervision of a few students, and
tinally into a busy, ever-increasing library, under a special librarian, even now
fast outgrowing the room devoted wholly to its use. Q
If the library were closed for one clay, we would realize the vital part it
plays in the every-day routine of this school. Once used to it we should find it
very hard to get along without it. It is so convenient to have material close at
hand and ready for you at any time and the best of all is you have Miss Price
and the card catalog to help you find just what you want. The time was when
we did get along without a library, but we lacked the interest in our studies
that books, other than text, could give us.
The interest in present-day happenings is usually the keenest in almost all
of us and in our library you can get the best ideas of what the people in the
world are doing now-a-days, posted and classified for you.
Xlfhen one comes down to bare facts, if we didn't have any books we
wouldn't have any school. Books have been the means of spreading civilization
and learning, and if we fully appreciate them we should take interest in the
growth of the school library.
KATHERINE MERRIAM, December '18.
What We Are Doing in c'Portab1e E"
music department has been organized this term by Mr. Geo. T. Matthews,
formerly of Oakland High School and Fremont High School.
This school is a fine field for music of a high grade and already 240
students are enrolled in this new department. Following is a brief account of
some of the musical organizations.
This organization has grown to a memlgership of thirty and has a full
instrumentation with the exception of bassoon. This we shall add later. The
orchestra has played a number of times for assemblies and promises to become
one of our strongest musical ensembles. They have three periods of work each
week and are given one half credit each year on the high school course. Every
member has an individual lesson each week on his instrument. From the
orchestra Five have been selected for special string quintet work.
HIGH SCHOOL GLEE CLUB
Special mention should be made of the Boys' Glee and Girls, Glee. selected
from the High School Chorus. These two organizations are especially popular
and have appeared at numerous assemblies. They will be augmented and tur-
ther assisted during the coming term. No extra credit is given for this work,
but there is keen rivalry for places in these clubs.
The Harmony course is a new one this term. The iirst class, Harmony A
has just completed a successful terms' vvork. There are already enough pros-
pective students of this course registered to justify its continuance next term.
Harmony classes recite each day and receive full credit each year. up to a pos-
sible total of two credits. One member of the class wrote and composed our
new school song, "University Highf,
HIGH SCHOOL CHORUS
There are fifty voices in the chorus and the parts are evenly balanced.
They have sung in assemblies a selection from "Pirates of Penzance," and the
entire "Gallia" by Gonoud with Mr. Glenn H- Xlfoods as soloistg also the "Tri-
umphal March" from "Aida", with orchestral accompaniment, and miscellaneous
selections. The chorus meets two periods a week and the singers are given half
a credit each year on their high school course.
Mr. Matthews teaches all the vocal classes, gives the instrumental instruc-
tion in all instruments, and teaches the harmony classes.

At a second meeting an informal discussion on student government
took place. Arrangements were made for the purchase of class-pins, and the
class colors were selected-royal purple and cardinal red.
The Blues and Golds
XVING to the small number of students in the school and. above all, the
small number of those who have "jazz" enough to take part in athletics,
interclass athletics in the past have been out of the question. But this it no
longer the case. The entire student body of boys has been divided up into two
sides-the Blues and the Colds. At the beginning of the semester, an athletic
committee appointed iiDLltL'll,, Gilsenan captain of the Blues, and Harold
Martin captain of the Colds. Although no athletic contests have been staged
between the rival companies as yet, there has been plenty of "pep" shown
at the different activities of either side, and we may hope for some good
exciting games in the future, as the two sides are very evenly matched.
SERIOUS question. confronts every player and follower of football
in our school, in fact in every high school in this part of the state the
same problem has arisen within the last year. It is one which commands the
most universal attention that any athletic question ever has before. The
question is: Shall we remain faithful to our adopted game of Australian
Rugby, or shall we change to the old American intercollegiate game?
The Rugby game is so well known by most students that it is un-
necessary to defend it here. One of the American game's strongest points at
our school is that we could, without a doubt, secure an excellent coach from
the University of California and by working hard, get a big "head-start" on
our neighboring schools.
"American" has already entered our school. Every day at noon the
inter-class elevens of the Blues and Colds may be seen practicing formations
in the yard.
As this question will probably be put to vote in the school before long, it
should be the duty of every wide-awake student to inform himself of the
strongest points of each game, and to weighthe pros and cons over thoroughly.
The ghost of American football has entered the school. ls it a ghost, or
N November sixteenth the Golds staged their lynx for jinks or Gynks
or however it is spelledj at noontime in the yard. A "bull-ring" was
made of benches and after much pushing, and elbowing, and fighting for
places, the audience became partly settled and the fun began. Major-domo
Martin announced the hrst event-a pie-eating contest between Bruce Thomas
and "Fat" Alberg. XN'hen the dust of the start had cleared, "Little Kenny"
was seen to be leading by about three mouthfuls, and although "Chubby,'
rallied frantically in the ninth Cpiej Kenny finished first, after having spread
as much pie upon his ears as he succeeded in consuming.
The next act upon the program was a genuine Keystone pie nghtg
'fSlim" Haynes saying "Yes" and Knox Bronson "No.'l The fight itself and
the final result were all that could have been imagined by the spectators, and the
argument was called a draw by the judges after the first 30 seconds, on account
of the contestants inability to recognize each other.
Number three was a tilting contest, out of which "Poopy" King. mounted
upon his faithful Russian charger, Vodka Jenks, emerged the victor.
The Battle Royal, the piece de resistance of the comedy, came last, and
f'Toughy" Gilsenan's preliminary sparring was interrupted by the bell.
which concluded this interesting exhibition.

University High School Girls Have links
HE "Monday Club" is a girls' organization at the University High School.
Every Monday it meets Cwhence it's namej and a pleasing program is
rendered. Each term it entertains all the girls of the school as well as the
faculty with a clever program. This is known as the term "jinks,'. No, it is
not 'f.lynx" such as some mischevious sprite is now playing among the officials
of Golden Gate Park. The "jinks" of the girls' Monday Club furnish no end
of fun and are eagerly looked forward to by all the girls.
This term's jlinks have just been given and they were just a little the best
yet. The program was opened by a piano solo by Marian Brandt and then the
principal made a few introductory remarks in which he described the girls' links
as jolly, Informal, Nice, Kinkey and Satisfying. A very clever impersonation
was given by Dorothy Dukes, Gladys Boone and Marguerita Armstrong of
"Three Old Maids From Lee."
Then came the farce, the piece de resistance of these glorious links, no less
than a most humorous burlesque of that most celebrated play, Julius Caesar by
Shakespeare himself. The young ladies, nothing daunted, "took him offf' Those
who took leading parts were: Alice Turner, Mildred McCormick, Carol Balsley.
Alice Graham, Audra llfebster, Katharine VVilder, Edna Bordman, Eleanor
Davies, Elizabeth Randol, Gladys Boone and Ina Mackinnon.
A really beautiful feature of the program and something entirely too good
not to be repeated before a larger audience was a series of tableaux descriptive
of the leading epochs in the life of the modern high school girl. From kinder-
garten to grandma the scenes were shown. The parts were extremely well
taken by Leona Mayer and Marie Tesseire as little children, Emily Gedge as
high school graduateg Thelma Gilman, collegiang Arda Bibbins, artistg Katha-i
rine l'l'ilder, prima donna, Ivy Little, red cross nurseg Marian Myers, woman
suffrage leader, Dorothy Dukes, society leader, Dorothy Leverich, the blushing
bride, preceded by Leona Mayer as Hower girly followed by her prettily gowned
bridesmaids jean Bennett, Arda Bibbins, Martha Bromley. Then followed
Grace Pillsbury, taking the part of mother, and Madeline jund the part of
grandmother. At the end the grandmother sits beside the fire-place seeing pass
by the leading scenes of her long life as impersonated by a long line of appro-
priately dressed girls.
Music was interspersed through the program by the Ukulele Qrchestra and
Marguerita Armstrong, in a charming gown scattering rose leaves in the air,
gave most gracefully a pretty Grecian dance.
Punch and dancing followed the program.
Behind every good performance there is always some master mind that
inspires, directs, meets emergencies and secures results. To Mrs. Alice B.
Robertson the Monday Club is much indebted. She is resourceful, clever, en-
thusiastic, just the kind of woman of whom it might well be said that to know
her was an education in itself. The girls swear by her.
The new addition to our building should be a source of gratification to
those students who have been "hopefully waiting" for the last year or so.
This wing will include several new class-rooms, and a dressing room for
athletics, and should prove a relief to those who have been forced to lead
a "tramp" existence in the hall during major this semester.
There have been other things than the noise of the workmen in the
new building to worry us here at school this semester. Mr. Lee's serious
illness of nine weeks has been a cause of much concern to the entire school.
NOW that he is back again with us we should try to show him how we
appreciate his pluck, in coming to us straight from the hospital, by endeavoring
to make these last few weeks of school travel by as smoothly as possible.
One of the most popular features of our school life this semester has been
the assemblies which have been held at frequent intervals in the Emerson
Auditorium. Not only have we had many well-known speakers, but we have
had the pleasure of hearing many selections by the school's two baby organiza-
tions, the Chorus and the Boys' Glee Club.
The entire Student Body certainly owes a debt of gratitude to Chairman
Allan and the Assembly Committee, who have always provided such interesting
programs. The success which has attended these meetings of the Student
Body makes it quite certain that the assemblies will be continued in the
