A branch of a small t1'ee peeks through it timidly at the corridor below. A few steps further and one comes to a small double door with the upper part made of carved wooden bars. The doors open into a beautiful little patio, in the center of which dainty pansies smile up to the sky above. The cactus in the middle lifts its pointed arms as if. ready to catch anything that might fall into them. A broad, white cir- cle of cement invites wandering feet. Along the border of the walk, various colorful flowers and bushes beckon all creatures to enjoy their beauty. This spot is indeed the place to rest a weary soulg but the poor weary body was forgotten when the court was built, for nowhere with- inits limits can be found a comfort- able resting place for oneis fatigued bones. The little garden says, "Come stay awhile,'7 but no sunny seat seconds this call. May some future senior class that has enjoyed this exquisite patio, bequeath to it a humble seat for the students that enter happily through its doors. P AWAKE AT LAST! A surplus in the coffers of the student body of University high school! For the first time in many se- mesters, the regular allowance of the numerous organizations as given them by the student body treasury did not have to be cut down to the minimum. W h at is our present wealth due to? It is gen- erally agreed that this con- goooiw dition is the 0 result of bet- te r or aniza- tion dill the K Q' part of both faculty and student of fi- cials. N ever be- fore have the various insti- tutions joined together to form what is now known as the finance commission. This group is at present composed of the commissioner of finance, the commissioner of girls affairs, the student body president, the busi- ness managers of the Daily U-N-I and Cub T1'acks, the commissioner of publicity and the faculty treas- urer, as well as the advisor of our publications system. This semester a. new system of selling student body cards. which are one of the mainstays of sup- port, and U-N-I cards was intro- duced by this commission. During the campaign, which lasted a week the ninety salesman made it possi- ble for individuals to secure their cards by means of personal inter- vi e w s and such. As a result, m o r e t h a n eleven hundred stu- d e n t b o d y cards w e r e sold by the end of th e first quarter. This is th e highest quota K5 that has ever QD jf been reached U so early in the semester. f JL?

A cold sweat broke forth upon tl1e fore- headof Patty Shanahan, and he laid a big hand upon the sleeve of his chattering young companion at the wheel with the swift command, 'glunk that gab, boy, till I give you the word 1" New and uninitiated, with an effort, the youngster restrained ut- terance of the eager questions crowding to his lips. Wfliat was this man, this c1'eature, the very sight of whom he had seen bring an expression of horror to the face of even this seasoned tar? VVhat fearful things had he done or might he dog why should all shud- der in his presence? O n e d a y aboard and al- ready the boy had felt a pos- itive sensation F of disgust, re- pulsion, reluc- t a n t l y a c- knowle d g e d fear pulsate throu gh o ll t his senses at t he m er e proximity of the s p y in g officer as he had brushed Segure by him under the bridge. It was the boy's first trick at the lee-wheel. He had thrilled at the thought of it earlier in the even- ing, but now, so active a hold had the insidious "Rat,' taken upon the boys imagination, that even the novelty of a mid-watch trick at the wheel with Patty paled beside it. As soon as he could tear his fas- cinated gaze from the rapidly dis- appearing figure, his bright eyes, eagerly expectant, fastened them- selves to the tense form of the big fellow at the weather-wheel, waiting for some sign of relaxa- tion. Several moments passed, none was evident, he ventured to speak. "I say, Pattyf, but once again the hand of the big seaman silenced him. 'cPipe down, Johnny. lNIum's the word aboard this packet if you of the brigln Eyes glued to the compass, Patty's f ace still s h o n e W h i t e a n d strained in the light of the binnacle.

The less you know about that guy and his doin's, the better chance you got for makin' a ratin' this cruise. He leaves us at Quan- tanamo Bay for Merrimac, thank God, and until then hold fast to all you gotln 'Wvho knowsf' repeated the boy blankly, utterly disregarding Pat- ty's fatherly little sermon. "Well, why? Does nobody know him ?', "No! This mystery stuff is just what he's tryin, to get away with, and the whole gang, fore and aft, is pretty well bluffed. You see, kid, with that sneaky, slippery way of his and the power of a first "luf f ,H he finds it easy to persecute the crowd under him. I could tell you tales that would shiver your timbers, that would-but I better get a hitch on myself. He slam- med f our into the brig this morn- ing before breakfast for less than were doin' now." "Brig! For talking! Are you denied the right of speech?H "Speech! H---, no! Speak all you bloody well please, but don't say nothin'! Remember, kid, youire never safe. 'The Rat? is always close by.

You'll not get another croak out of me F' After several fruitless attempts to continue the conversation, Johnny relapsed into a thoughtful silence. He was disappointed in Patty, miserably disappointed. A Weather-beaten, hairy-chested, old Seaman, veteran of half-a-dozen wars, and in mortal terror of his superior officer. What kind of bravery was that? Johnny couldn't realize that it was not principally terror of what the first lieutenant could do that made even himself falthough he wouldn't admit itj shudder, but the horrible sugges- tion of everything creepy, slimy, evil, that lurked in every line of the '6Rat,s', supple, skinny body. Johnny was young, enthusiastic. He thought that determination and courage could overcome any obsta- cle. Of that inward recoil of the soul that the mind cannot govern he knew nothing. Physical fear was the only fear he could imagine, and so far the tried to tell himself J this "Rafi had inspired in him nothing more than a vague disgust. But no-he would be honest with himself. This man had in- spired in him something more than disgust-interest. A boy with J ohnny's education could not ac- cept the current superstition that the Tuscarora's executive was something other than man. He could not then accept the fact that this much reviled creature was en- tirely devoid of even that spark of good that he had been taught ex- isted in every human soul. Re- pellent, he acknowledged him, but 12 maybe 'lThe Rat", Qhad the man no name?j was one of those unfor- tunate misfit personalities who have no place in this world.

This desire was expressed to the members of the faculty, who at that time did not deem it advisable to start a form of absolute self -gov- ernment. However, it was finally agreed that a co-operative govern- ment should be adopted, the legis- lative body of which should consist of one representative from each major room, and which should be known as the student's cooperative council. To preside over this group a student president was chosen, hut from the old semi-annual Cubs, that offer the only actual source of information, we are led to believe that the first councils were actually presided over by the principal, and that the faculty made up a goodly number of the members. If a club or organization wanted a matter brought before the coun- cil, the subject was first called to the attention of the major-room representative, and then was taken by him to the council whenever it happened to meet, which was only when business demanded, for we are told that its chief duties we1'e those of apportioning the budget and of electing the Cub staff. As time went on and the mem- bership of the student body in- creased, the need for a written set of laws grew until, in 1919, a con- stitution, drawn up by a com- mittee consisting of M a rio n Brandt, Esther Munson, Kenneth Foresman, Wilson Minor, and Ted VV right, was adopted by the stu- dents. This document was long and cumbersome." It provided for a goverment much like that which we have already attempted to de- scribe, but with many new features. The officers to be elected--a pres- ident, a vice president, a secretary, and a yell leader were clearly speci- fied, and the council was made to include not only the representatives from major rooms but those from other groups as well. There was one from each of the boys, and girls' major sports, two from the Girls, league, and one from the Block U society, which was considered' ' portant and influential ienou have a vote, the school treasu the boys' physical di1'ecto1', and the girls' physical director., Besides the executive officers of the council, there were of course the various committees. Those llted include one for each of the fol- lowing: Assembly, recept i o n, dues, publicity, auditing, and em- blems. This early constitution also pro- vided f or the election of officers by the Australian ballot system, and for the distribution of athletic awards, the formation of commit- tees, and the organization of the classes. Its main weakness lay in the fact that the council was too large to work efficiently. Repeated at- tempts to remedy this condition by 14 amendment failing, a new consti- tution was adopted in 1921. Tl1is new document was prepared by the civics classes after considerable re- search by the students under the di- rection of lNIiss Crystal Harford, and was designed to meet the needs of an enlarged student body. The most fundamental change was that concerning student body membership. Wlie1'e formerly this privilege was granted only to holders of A. S. U. H. S. cards. by the new constitu- tion all stu- dents were oi sidered a izens, al- though only those holding cards were al- lowed to vote. T li e n e w elective offi- cers provided fo r were a presid e n t, a y ell leader, and five coun- cilmen - one for finance, one for publicity, one for boys' sports, o11e for organizations and special events, and one for the .junior high. Each of these was to be nominated by a petition, bearing the signatures of at least five per cent of the holders of A.S.U.H.S. cards. A vice president, a clerk, and a chief justice 'were to be ap- F. H. Boren, Friend of Student Goverment. pointed. These, along with the principal a nd school t1'C3Sl1l'C1', made up the personnel. The new council was made to function t h r o u g h committees. Each commissioner was given the authority to appoint his own, with the exception of the commissioner of girls, affairs whose work was to be done by a council composed of representatives from each class or e and each girls, organizat i o n T he chief ustiee in turn appointed his vigilance comm it t e e s There were and are at the date, three of them, a senior boys', present girl sl a senior and one for the u n io r high. The fi- nances W e 1' e managed by the commis- sioner in co- operation with the faculty 'treasurer of the s c h o o l. Assisting him were committees of salesmen. The publicity com- niissionerls staff consisted of the various members of the art de- partment and the staff of tl1e Daily U -N-I. A committee was also selected by the clerk of social affairs to assist in the supervision of the noon dances, and the com- missioner of junior high had his 15 41,18 advisory board at which all things pertaining to the junior depart- ment could be discussed before be- ing referred back to the student council. Under the direction of the com- missioner of special events was the central committee which was re- sponsible for all the large events and ente1'tainments of the school term. This committee in turn was related to the ushering committee which was responsible for all the ushering that must be done in the auditorium on special occasions. The commissioner of girls af- fairs was just another name for the president of the Girls' league. This league was made up of every girl in the school. It had its own council, composed of representa- tives f rom each of the classes from the seventh grade to the high sen- iors. Its faculty advisor was the dean of girls. The Girls' league itself is an institution that dates back farther than our records of student organization. This form of government, which has been outlined above, is funda- mentally what exists today. At present the members of the coun- cil are Roscoe Peart, president of the student body, Dorothy Hays, commissioner of girls affairs, Stewart Riddell, commissioner of special events, Harry Butler, com- missioner of boys, sports, Robert Perry, commissioner of publicity, and John Rowell, commissioner of finance. Bernard Bowren is com- missioner of junior high, Freeman Nichols, yell leader, Arthur Ar- lett, chief justice, Helen Holton, clerk of the council and the fac- ulty advisors are Mr. F. H. Boren, principal, Miss ltlarian Brown, dean of girls, and Dr. C. C. Conrad, faculty treasurer. All elected student officers have a vote in this council but the ap- pointed members-namely, th e clerk, chief justice, and the yell leader, may not vote. As a result of this more com- pact form of government, many subsidiary institutions, that are, as the case may be, connected directly or indirectly with student govern- ment, have flourished. The undisputed success of the Girls' league through all the years, with its great service as an institu- tion of the school, leads us to be- lieve that it was the inspiration of the boys, who formed a similar league of their own in 19244. Their chief purpose, however, is different, in as much as they seek to promote the athletics of the school. Their president is elect- ed by the boys at a separate elec- tion. In other words their presi- dent is not a student body of f iccr as is the president of the girls' or- ganizatior. Their council is made up in the same way as is that of the girls. Back in the early days, among the various activities of the school was the lVIonday club which was founded by a teacher whose mem- ory is very dear to the older stu- dents, Alice Berry Robertson. In her honor we, of the present day, hold the Alice Berry Robertson cup contest each year. This or- ganization has since been combined with another one, and one that is still flourishing, the Rainbow club.

This unit was somewhat on the order of the R.O.T.C., only the boys wore the regular naval uni- forms and practiced on Lake lNIer- ritt. The Daily U-N-I was at this period, a weekly paper, and was only introduced as a daily in the year 1924. The Cub began in 1914 as a semi-annual magazine. It was changed later to an annual and then to the magazine which we have today, the quarterly, Cub Tracks. The honor group, another sub- sidiary organization, is also of re- cent date. This group is composed of those people who have high stan- dard of scholarship as well as citi- zenship. The qualifications of the students who apply for member- ship and the privileges to be grant- ed, are determined by the honor board, consisting of an appointed student chairman and a faculty and student committee. The point system gives an award at graduation to all students tak- ing part in the numerous activities of the senior high school. At this time all who have received the specified number of points dur- ing the previous three years are al- lowed to sign their names in the point system book. This signing is done at the senior assembly held just before the graduation exer- cises at the end of the semester. Since the erection of the new building, many groups have been added to the list of activities. At the present time there are some twenty clubs and societies in the senior high school. Besides these, we also have our athletic teams, the R.O.T.C. and the junior and senior high orchestras. At the present time all of these numerous groups and organiza- tions are so closely bound together by common ties of loyalty, and are all working toward the one main purpose, the betterment of Uni- versity high school, to such an ex- tent, that they are not unlike the units in a factory that assist in the manufacturing and assembling of a machine. The goal of this co-opera- tion is a school, perfect in spirit, in its system of government, and above all in its standards of scholar- ship and citizenship. To the reader it may seem that at present we have realized the ideal for which we are striving, but we know that at some future date, when some writer tries to put the history of our school govern- ment into print, still greater improvement will by then have been made. As our school govern- ment has been in the past, so will it be in the future, a process by which we reach out toward the ideals of usefulness and service. . 1 N 20 Upper left: The junior high vigilance committee--Arthur Ariett, chief justicegfupper' leftj.

The purpose of the amendment is to replace the customary commis- sioner of finance by a teasurer, who will serve for a full year instead of one term, be an appointed officer, instead of elected by the student body, and hold the office as a sub- ject, receiving one credit for his yearis Work and devoting' one period a day to his duties- Be it resolved that the constitu- tion of the U.H.S.S.B., Article V, section 1 be amended: By adding the word "treasurer", section 1 Will read: "The of ficers of this association shall be a presi- dent, vice president, trea.surer, clerk of tl1e council and yell leaderf, Article V, Section 1, paragraph 2. By striking out the words "com- missioner of f mance" paragraph 2 will then readg "The commissioners of the asso- ciation shall be a commissioner of publicity, a commissioner of girl's affairs, a commissioner of boys sports, commissioner of organi- zation and special events, and com- missioner of junior high."

By adding the words "with the exception of the treasurer" and "the treasurer shall serve for one fiscal year after his appointment, except that the treasurer elected in the fall term of 1926 shall serve for one term only, his term expiring June 30, 1927" so that section V will read: "Offices, with the exception of the treasurer, shall serve for one school semester, and until suc- cessors are elected and qualified? The treasurer shall serve for one fiscal year beginning June 30 after his appointment, except that the treasurer elected in the fall term of 1926 shall serve for one term only, his term expiring June 30,1927, so that Section V will then 1'ead: "Officers, with the exception of the treasurer, shall serve for one school semester, and until success- ors are elected and qualified.

FALL SPORTS VVith all of the fighting deter- mination that has ever made Uni- versity's athletic teams so colorful, even in their hours of defeat, the Blue and Gold squads, engaged in various branches of fall sports, started the 1926 season with a de- gree of enthusiasm seldom matched in the schoolts history. Football, the crowning glory of the Ameri- can athlete, occupied the stellar role in the sporting drama enacted during the current season. Solid support from the student body, plus the exceptional caliber of the Cub teams, helped to make the season one of the most success- ful University has ever known. All doubt of the existence of the fam- ous 'cold schooli' spirit was ban- ished from pessimistic minds by the showing made by Universityis 1'ep- resentatives in the field of athletics. FOOTBALL Carrying on the high standards of sportsmanship established by his predecessor, Mr. Percy Locey, Coach Elwood "Mose', Lyman, star three-letter man of the Ore- gon Aggies, rapidly gained a high point in every studentis estimation. ltluch of the success attached to the sporting season belongs to Coach Lyman, who has labored earnestly to guide the Cubs to league leader- ship. lVIr. Lymanis work was greatly assisted by the large turnout of capable gridmen. The entire first team was composed of members of last year's 130's, or transfers from other schools' last yearis teams. This showing of experienced men was especially gratifying to the new mentor. TECHNICAL HIGH Tech's mighty battlers of the gridiron, so long and so completely on top of the O.A.L., came down a couple of pegs when University, with a light but powerful team and a fighting heart, beat them 6-0. For many long years have the other members of the league bat- tled unsuccessfully to down the Purple and Gold, and now Univer- sity, who was once the official "un- fContinued on Page 285 24 ELWOOD "MOSE" LYMAN "Hold 'im, Mose!

Seldom, if ever, l1as a U11i- versity coach been so color- fully introduced to the student body, but the faith that VVhit Henry referred to has been well justified by the work of Elwood Lyma11, U 11i- versity's foot- ball coach, a11d formerly a star i11 athletics at Oregon Agri- cultural College. The gi ant Aggie, known affectionatey by his close friends as g'lNfIose,,' came to this school with a hard task set before him, that of filling tl1e place left vacant by for- m e 1' C o a c h Coach Loceyls P1'0I11OtlOl1. But it seems that tl1e high standard of work established by lNI1'. Locey, also a11 O.A.C. star, is more or less of a common thing among tl1e gradu- ates of that university, and tl1e state of Oregon certainly sent the pick of her sportsmen to coach the Bue and Gold.

TECHNICAL HIGH fContinued from Page 24 j derdogf' accomplished the feat for the first time. It was in the third quarter of one of the closest games that high school fans have ever seen in this city that Harry Butler completed one of his famous end runs and gave the Cubs their victory. A fighting line and a fast backfield had worked their way to near the ten-yard line, making it possible for Harry to make the score. The first half found the two teams moving back and forth be- tween the twenty-yard marks, and ended with a 0-0 score. The third quarter was featured by Univer- sity's superlative playing and the resulting touchdown. In the last quarter Tech attempted to tie the score by means of reckless passing, but the smoothness that used to fea- ture their aerial attack was missing. Kenny Gibson was the most con- sistent ground gainer on the field, being ready to contribute at least five ya1'ds almost any time. 'fSpike' Peart played good ball, and drop- ped three punts only because with a torn ligament in his shoulder he ROOSEVELT HIGH For a distance of an aggregate fifty yards, Harry Butler, end, ran the Cubs into a 1-L-O win over Roosevelt's Roughriders. T he score was an exact duplication of last yearls results. Both touchdowns were made in the first quarter, and after each one, f'Spike', Peart, than whom there is no better qua1'ter in the league, made use of his trusty toe, and drop-kicked the conversions. The whole team played a high class brand of football, with Cal Smith tearing giant holes through the highly touted center of the Red and VVhite line and Dana Long playing his customary peerless de- fensive game at fullback- Johnny Donohue at end and Kenny Gibson at half also did more than their share in the victory. could not lift his left arm. At that, he returned the otl1e1' punts for an average of nearly twenty ya1'ds. Every man's work could be pointed out in a similar manner if space al- lowed. The line was in the thick of things all the time, and was never outplayed. THE WHOLE FIGHTING SQUAD Front row, left to right: Gibson, Peart, Long, Thompson, Bold, O'Hare.

RICHMOND GAME Despite the fact that University was beaten in her first game of the season by Richmond high, 13-6, the brand of football displayed by the home team was none the less encouraging to the Cub support- ers. . In the eourse of the game, which was played on Teeh's field, Uni made eleven first downs to her op- ponents' two, to say nothing of re- covering a few fumbles. Had it not been for some blocked kicks, the Blue and Gold team would in all probability have come out on top. Butler's last quarter run net- ted the lone tally. The work of DuFrane and Smith in the line and of Gibson in the baekfield was especially fine, although the whole team worked together Well. MISSION GAME In sweet retaliation for the 26-0 defeat suffered last year, Univers- ity won a bitterly fought game from lNIission high, of San Fran- eiseo, at Ewing Field, by the score of 2-0. A drop-kick by "Spike, Peart, star quarterback, from the 40 yard line, fell short of the goal by a few feet. The hlission safety man, hoping to make the ball go out of bounds, kicked it as it came to him, but it went over his own goal line instead. He reeoveredit, but was caught by Uni's charging line, and the resulting two points were enough to Win the game. Dana Long's punting was one of the brightest individual features ofthe game, while Tiedeman main- tained a good quality of work in the line. 29 ,,Li.J 4 THE SPADE DAY The traditional spade, in the care of the spade gua1'ds, together with the football squad, came once again before the assembled student body for the annual football "Spade Rally" that is held before each game with Technical high school, on Friday, October 22. VVarren Andresenas jazz orches- tra, "The Ambassadors,w offered musical selections which were fol- lowed by a spirit raising talk by blr. Elwood Lyman, coach of the squad. ' A skit on Egyptian football, written by Harold Cooper, was presented by the Aladdin company, of Student Body night fame, showing how the students in Egyptian high schools won their big games. A bleacher stunt for the after- noonis contest, that was played on the opponentis field, was explain- ed by Freeman Nichols, yell lead- er, after which a new Cub yell was introduced. Cheering concluded the event, which was held to give the winning team a send-off. During the regular auditorium period and at noon, Blue and Gold bleacher caps were sold to the students by members of the Girls, PIEDMONT GAME In all of Noah Webster's great book there is probably no word that can quite do justice to the manner in which the Cubs beat Piedmont high. After four triumphant years, during which time no Oak- la.nd high school had succeeded in even scoring on the Highlanders, Piedmont finally succumbed to the fighting squad of gridsters from University to the tune of '13-0. Starting in the second quarter, when Kenny Gibson, the New lliexico flash, scooped up a fumble and raced sixty yards for Unis first touchdown, the ultimate out- come of the game was never much in doubt. Harry Butler added more to the afternoon's entertain- ment when in the fourth canto he ran away from Piedmont,s ends for a space of twenty yards, ending up on the favorable side of the Highland goal line for another six points. Roscoe "Spike', Peart, star quarterback, converted after the second score, to add an extra point. Lloyd-Gee, this floor is slip- pery. It's hard to keep on your feet. Irma-You're doing pretty well, league. These caps were worn all Lloyd. day by the student body and after -- school at the game.

It was his hat which attracted me first, an old black derby, spotted artistically. It was battered and torn, but it hung just the least bit to one side and seemed to defy the whole world in a most jaunty and fetch- ing manner. As I came opposite him, I slowed down to better ob- serve his unique head-covering, and when he noticed that I was looking at him, instantly came the well known whine of the street bum. "Please, mister, can you spare a few pennies to a man what ain't et in days?" It was late evening, n1y work for the day was done, and so, re- membering Van Bibber, I said, 5 Emost wretched looking .f .Q - mostly on impulse, "If you know a good place to eat, letls go." He accepted with an alacrity that soothed some of my doubts, and led the way to a little one-arm lunch, where he dof fed his remark- able hat and proceeded to wrap himself around a supper that un- doubtedly would have fed three starving Armenians. Wfhen fin- ally he laid down his instruments, I gave him a cigarette and encour- aged him to talk. And there in that little white-tiled restaurant, with our C31'S filled with the rat- tling of dishes, he told me this tale. Alt was 'way back in the time when a man could get a hand-out at a back door without getting run in. I was no bum like I am now. I was a young fellow then, and handsome and full of devilment. The family thought I was a bad egg,-guess I was, and finally my uncle had a pull with somebody else, and he got me a job as some sort of secretary to the American Consul at Bombay. Probably the family thought I couldn't disgrace 'em 'way out there. Anyway, they 32 shipped me out, and that was the last they ever saw of me. "Lord knows there was nothing to it but graft. The consul needed a secretary like he needed an overcoat-might come in handy somewhere, but not in that climate. He had nothing to do, he wasn't in 142 his office six months in the five years that I was there. He used to go big-game hunting up coun- try half the time. g'YVe was a gay crew. There was a good many British officials of one sort or another with their wives, sisters, and daughters, and there was missionaries too, but they wouldnit have nothing to do with us, said we was all headed straight to perdition. VVe was al- ways having dances, and that sort of thing,--I guess they was afraid of getting home-sick if they didn't raise Cain continuous. "There was ust one thing that 1 couldnit abide. That was snakes. I never got used to them like the -rest of them did. I'd always be just as scared, even of the harmless ones. There was one girl in par- ticular that used to make pets of them. Her name was Edith Par- ker, and shortly after I got there, she took up a regular monster, a young boa-constrictor, - raised him out of the egg. She called him Tom, and she used to wear him around l1er neck like a sca1'f until he got too big to handle. She was real fond of Tom, and he was of her, but finally he got too big and heavy, and she had to let him go. For a long time, weld hear stories: about this big snake that would come into the houses and scare the natives. After a while they stop- ped, and we figured that Tom was either dead, or had migrated. The natives worked up some myth about him, and he got quite a repu- tation as a local deity. "But we was to meet him again. One time we all went hunting up in the hills after birds and possibly a pig or two, and lNIiss Parker and I got separated from the rest. There wasn't any use trying to find the bunch in that jungle, and we kI1CVV that they'd find us if we didnit wander away, what with their native trackers and all, so we got down off' our horses and sat under a big tree to wait until our party should find us. 'cSuddenly there bl11'St through the bushes tl1e biggest wild boar 33 that I ever hope to see. He must have weighed a half a ton or more, and his tusks were long and gleam- ing, and he had a. wicked eye that shone balefully in the jungle sha- dows. Of course, our horses bolt- ed at once, with our guns in the saddle holsters. I didn't waste any time staring, but got lNIiss Parker and myself up into the tree as soon as possible. Then the old snorter parked himself at the foot of the tree and glared at us. There was nothing we could do but wait until somebody came along and chased the brute, so con- sequently we settled ourselves for a long wait, while the old boy down below us settled himself, and pro- ceeded to go to sleep. "With the intention of making ourselves more comfortable, I moved up higher, and grasped a thick, gnarled branch above my head. I nearly fell out of the tree, for the branch was cold and clammy, and moved under my hand. Slowly it uncoiled, and re- vealed itself as a boa-constrictor of magnificent proportions. I gave a yell, and prepared to throw my- self out of the tree and take my chances with the boar, for an adult boa is an ugly customer to stick around with. I was stopped by an answering cry from lNIiss Parker, and by the time I had recovered my balance and looked around, here she was talking to the brute, and it was resting its head on her shoulder as if it were glad to see her. Yes, it was Tom, right enough. Personally, I shouldn't have recognized him, but then he wasn't my pet. "Bliss Parker was talking to the reptile, and pointing to the snort- 34 ing beast below. I canlt p1'etend to say whether the brute understood her, or whether, freshly awakened, he saw breakfast waiting for him, and acted accordingly. The girl always claimed he understood her. However that may be, Tom un- wound himself some more, and dropped a couple of coils around the boa1'. "Then began a mighty battle. The pig, uttering piercing cries with a horrible human note in them, fought and thrashed in a vain en- deavor to free himself from those dreadful coils. It was horrible to watch, and Edith leaned trembling against me, her eyes closed, and scarcely breathing. I put my arm around her protectingly, but I could not take my eyes from the struggle below. For some time they fought, the frantic efforts of the boar preventing the snake from getting his deadly grip. Fin- ally Tom anchored himself with a couple of turns around the base of the tree, and then, slowly, inex- orably, the huge coils began to con- t1'act. The boar, feeling it, re- doubled his struggling, and his shreiks became continuous and soul-rending. As I watched, I could see that they were coming near to the edge of the gorge, where a little river flowed. Tight- er and tighter grew the pitiless coils, weaker and weaker grew the boar,s efforts, but nearer and nearer they came to the brink of the precipice. At last, about a yard from the edge, the boarls struggles ceased, and there was a hideous sound of crunching bones. HThen, crash! The edge of the gorge caved in, and victor and vanquished disappeared over the brink. It wasnit in Tom's nature to let go, and besides, he was se- curely anchored to the tree. He made a violent effort to draw him- self and his prize back to the top, and his huge body swelled and strained in a last supreme try. For a moment he hung motionless, but the weight of the boar was too great, and slowly the long hawser- like body began, sickeningly, to stretch. For what seemed an eter- nity, I watched, frozen, as the smooth shape grew Slimmer and slimmer, stretching,-" Suddenly the voice stopped, and with a sharp shock, I recalled my- self to the little white-tiled restau- rant. Following his gaze, I saw my story-teller staring at the blue- coated back of a policeman on the other side of the room. Swiftly, stealthily, he pushed back his chair, and before I could move, he was at the door. The policeman turned, and catching sight of him seemed to clear the space in a single bound. However, by the time he had reach- ed the door, the shabby form had disappeared into the night with- out. Ruefully, he turned back and came toward me, while a sick fear settled like a lump of lead on my stomach . I looked around me. There, under his chair, lay the hat which had attracted me first. I picked it up, and was examining it when I heard the policeman say in a matter-of -f act voice, "VVell, how much did you lose ?,' Mechanically, I felt my pockets. My watch, bill-fold, fountain pen, coin purse,-all gone. "VVho is he?" I gasped. '4That's Spell-binder Joe," he said. '4we've been trying to catch him for the last five years. Told you a wonderful story, didn't he? VVell, I'll report your case to head- quarters. I hope we catch him next time," and he sauntered out, swinging his night-stick. TO THE STAGE CREVV It's pleasant to stand in the spot- light And bow as the audience cheers, Itis nice, when the curtain is drop- ping, To catch the applause in your ears. It's easy to think you're an actor, To stand in the l'ight's brilliant glow, And to feel that the crowd has ac- claimed you The star of the evening's show. It's pleasant to read in the papers, The flattering dope that is there, It's nice to be talked of as famous, And asked to each social af fair, But it isn't so easy to labor Behind all the curtains and screens And work even more than the actors At changing the lights and the scenes. It's the person who works like a Trojan Behind the curtain and lights That never can share in the hand- clasps Right after the opening nights. That's why here at school we give credit To those to whom credit is due, And always make sure that our plaudits include The boys on the stage-setter's crew. -Arthur Arlett. 35 J 1 . ABOVE TEN. THOUSAND By Nathan Rowley 'gAnd we probably won't have any dinner or blankets tonight, well just have to make the best of it." Such were the words of Gil- bert Earle as he trudged up to the 'cadvance guardi' after an arduous day of hiking. This did not war- rant a very auspicious beginning for a Hwalki' of one hundred and sixty miles nor did it seem like the end of a perfect day. VVe, the John lNIuir club of 1926, had left Lake Huntington late the afternoon before and today had tried to hike a little extra to make up for lost time. There were eleven in the party. Gil Earle acted as manager and chief advisor of the group. Gil's father, lXIr. L. H. Earle, lNIr. R. E. B1'ownlee, Hal Earle, Tom Decker, Bill ltlurdoch, Amos Culbert, Frank Herberth, Don lNIcCown, Bob Perry and I, not to mention seven other burros which acted as pack animals, fin- ished the list. As near as Gil could make out, two of the boys and all the burros had taken the wrong trail early in the morning and were still going wrong. Luckily we were still in civilization and we managed to get food at some little camp. Just as we were finishing an early dinner and were preparing for a night on the cold, cold ground, the burros began to arrive. They continued to do so until half past eight that evening. According to Amos Cul- bert, the only benefit that he de- rived from having the burros take the wrong trail was that his vocabu- lary was greatly enlarged. To cap the climax, HlNIicky', was left up on the trail and some of us had to go back to get him. '4lNIickyi' in- troduced himself to all of us and some one prophesied that he would not let himself be forgotten by any one. VVe will read mo1'e of him later. Everybody took a much needed rest the next day and we found a second cousin to the Hole swimmin, holen, in which we all wet our toes. Late that afternoon, I rushed into camp eager to recite my experience onan exploration voyage. "-And I saw a dead cow and a beautiful water fall and fell inf, I still can't see why everybody laugh- ed. The next morning after we finally b1'ibed uhlickyi' to move, the cavaleade again started forward. The mountains we were passing through were just mountains. VV e had. not yet come into real wild country. At about ten o'clock, we passed through the McKinley grove of big trees-the Sequoia gigantia variety. These trees were both interesting and unusual, being three hundred feet high, on the average, and from six thousand to eight thousand years old. By the time the party had pro- gressed this far, 'glNIicky', had firm- ly established his reputation. He will never be famous, only notori- ous. In passing we might say that lXIicky was a burro. The unusual thing about him was that it onlv took eight of us to put his pack on him. Also his feet insisted oi. wandering of f the trail toward the green grass. 36 Late in the afternoon we reach- ed the no1'th fork of the Kings river where we again camped. During this day another burro distinguished himself. "Coley" got his gears mixed and they seem- ed to stick. Mr. Earle describes 'cColey,' as "all the Way in lowf, VVe stayed on the north fork all the next day and again tried swim- ming. Some of the real fishermen managed to catch a few fish in the river here. After deciding to get an early start, we arose next mo1'ning at fo11r a. m. and were ready to leave by six. Ilowever, We had to cross a suspension bridge in order to get over the river-fand, well, burros just donit like that kind of a bridge. VV ith the co-operation of all, we finally managed to bodily lift the animals over the dreaded span. That was indeed t1'ue sport, Sport? During the day We were thor- oughly squelched and had our spir- its quite dampened by several thun- der storms mixed with hail. We started to prepare for a sopping night by building a "poncho villa", a minature circus tent, under which we slept. Of course, the stars shone all that night. The next day we entered the real wild rugged mountains. We de- scended into beautiful Tehipite valley, a second Yosemite, only Wilder and on a larger scale. The walls of the valley rise almost per- pendicular to a height of ten thou- sand feet. Tehipite dome is one of Left: Tehipite Valley. Center: A portion of Muir Glacier. Right: The members of the party grouped about one of a grove of giant trees. 37 l the few. solid blocks of stone in the world. Beside Tehipite dome, Crown Falls dash down into the valley. Opposite these falls on the other side of the valley are silvery streams that cascade through ra- vines of solid granite, almost straight up and down. Tehipite valley is only a wide place in the Kings river canyon, the middle fork of the Kings river flows through it. VVe hiked all afternoon between granite walls, and camped that night in beauti- ful Simpson meadows. During that day we saw three rattle snakes and killed two of them. These were the only snakes we saw all during the trip. YVe followed the Kings river up and over a trail blasted all the way over and through solid rock. As these rocks made treking difficult for every- body, we stayed a whole day near Grouse lNIeadows. The mountains we passed through were a series of ma jestic, rugged peaks. VVhile at Grouse lNIeadows some of the more industrious boys climb- ed a nearby peak to name it, only to find that the Sierra club had al- ready christened it ltlt. Shake- speare. The rest of us fished for Golden trout and had sev- enty-five of them baked for din- ner. The next high spot in our trip was when we climbed up to Pali- sade Glacier, the largest in the United States. VV'e left the bur- ros near the Kings river and dur- ing an afternoon hiked six miles to an elevation of twelve thousand feet. There were snow banks all around and only a few little trees of the white bark pine variety, which are the highest growing trees in the Sierra. We had taken a lit- tle food with us and each fellow had a poncho. Three big bonfires were built to last the night, and then we tried to sleep. Next morn- ing at four-thirty we started the real climb up to the glacier. The palisades are straight up one side and straight down the other. VVe managed to climb up a "chimney" and after three hours of scrambling over shale and boulders reached the top, at an altitude of fourteen thousand feet. We saw the glacier, took many pictures of it, and then slid down as best we could, to the bottom of the chimney. Un the eleventh day out we went up and over lNIuir Pass. Just be- fore reaching the top, we saw Helen Lake, the head waters of the Kings river. The top of lNIuir Pass is just over twelve thousand feet high. The ltluir club was the third party to go over this defile in the year 1926. We then started down and stopped rather early, the occasion being the preparation for the Fourth of July dinner, which was all that could be expected and more. VVe camped on the shore of Evo- lution Lake at the base of Darwin Peak. We found an abandoned fireless cooker, which caused Amos Culbert to suggest the bright idea, raisin pies. A drizzle of rain did its best to keep us from prepar- ing the Fourth of July banquet, but didn,t succeed. VVe made a large kettle of Jello and cooled it in a snow bank, and baked a chicken pie in the dutch oven we carried with us.

There a1'e more mosquitoes here than any other place on earth-at least the Muir club thinks so. With my feeble assistance Bill ltlurdoch managed to kill two hundred mos- quitoes in forty minutes, a record to envy. After a somewhat rainy day, the sun came out and, at six olclock, we pitched camp in a meadow near the San Joaquin river. That night we slept under clear summer skies. Such is the climate in the high Sierra. This afternoon is also to be re- membered by some of us because "Coley" maintained a slower pace tl1a11 usual and actually had to be pulled as well as pushed for several miles. "Slow as Coleyu will soon be a universal expression. Fording the river the next morn- ing, we skirted the shores of Lake Florence and at noon again saw civilization. The Southern Cali- fornia Edison company has built an immense dam which forms the lake. At the dam we learned the baseball scores and that night we camped near a ranger station. The next morning will go down in history as an eventful day be- cause we all had baths at some hot springs nearby. These baths were really a pleasure, not a duty. Recovering from the shock of hot water by mid afternoon, we hiked up to the top of Kaiser ridge above Lake Huntington, and spent our last night on the trail. This last night was also the cold- est. The party arrived back at Lake Huntington at noon of our six- teenth day and the fourth annual Muir club excursion was brought to a successful close. Hiking fif- teen miles a day was our average and we covered one hundred sev- enty miles of trail. Now to think of our next year's trip.

The show started off with everybody happy and never for one moment lost its tone throughout the whole per- formance. Students aroused by the noon dance a11d the enthusiasm of the day, mothers and fathers an- ticipating the well advertised pro- gram and little brothers and sis- ters thrilled with the brightly col- ored serpentine, all were in a re- ceptive mood to greet Eugene Charlesworth's "Ambass a d o r s," the first number on the program. HNew ltlooni' and "Could If executed by vVi211'1'Cll Andresen, piano, Jack and Wlalter Vance, saxaphonesg lNIonte Kelly, trum- pet, and Eugene C-harlesworth, drums, thrilled the audience as only good jazz can. A "college boy appeal" was fur- nished by the Senior Boys glee in a singing act with ia fraternity house setting. Following "The DCS1JC1'2lflO,,, their first song, Bob Koll, George Horton, Bill Layne, and J ack Steinbaek introduced some 11ew steps in a clever bit of horse play. "The Bells of Saint lNIarys" and 6'All Hail Blue and Gold" which b1'Ol1gllt University of California students to their feet, concluded the act. cc Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty took a great fall, And all the king's horses and all the king's men Couldnlt put Humpty together again." In a series of acrobatic stunts, dances and tableaus, the Junior Girls Athletic association, led by Florence Bianchi, told the sad story of Humpty inscribed above. A comedy in an English setting, entitled "The Shutting of the Doori' was presented by the Blue- bird Theatre, an eighth grade insti- tution directed by Bliss Beatrice Burnett. The east included: Villa Beth Stiles, as ltfargaret Tindalg Charles Dondero, as J an Tindalg 40 i I fy U C, i Howard Lisher as the first thief, and Ben Deane as the second thief, "Daisy Bell," "Two Little Girls in Blue," and other sonrrs of the same period, fancifully portrayed by the members of the lNIiusic BOX, followed in "Reminiscenses of 1890'." Mothers, fathers, and grandparents were carried back to other days by the voices of Aileen Bechtal, Jessie Viers, Elizabeth Billings, Phoebe Cooper and VVard Parsons, accompanied by ltiargaret Holman, pianist, and Bertrum Lurie, violinist. Solo dancing and high kicking greeted the audience in the "lNIini- ature Revuef' in which the Bianchi sisters, Florence and Evelyn, Eve- lyn Schlichting, and E v el y n Graves were the solo artists. Don Smith, Cyril Cope, Clar- ence Schrader and VV ard Parsons struggled through a black-face quartet rehearsal for their contribu- tion to the program. It is under- stood, of course, that it was the re- hearsal through which they strug- gled, not the act, which was xvell received, as the applause indicated. Thrill followed close upon thrill in the Senior Dramatic club of fer- ing, "TWo Crooks and a Ladyf, In this play, the cleverness of a para- lyzed woman in outwitting two pro, fessional crooks is portrayed. The cast was made up of Rolph Burr, Ina Hayes, Rose Segure, George Schofield and Clarence Gordon. One of the biggest attractions of the evening was the Woodwind quartet, composed of Jack Vance, VValter Vance, Stanley Moore and George Baldwin. In this number, forest stories told by Jack Vance were illustrated by music. The final act, a portion of which was presented several days earlier for the student body, was a feature bv the high senior class, "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves." In this burlesque, erstwhile staid and dig- nified seniors romped like the mer- est freshmen. The audience waxed enthusiastic over modern fanciful settings, bright remarks, and Nathan Rowley dressed up like a Christmas tree. Actors and actresses, the stage crew, the art clubs, music depart- ment, publicity department, ad- ministrative board, and the com- missioner of special events, faculty advisors, and the large audience, all contributed to make this Student Body night the success it was pro- nounced to be. THE- SENIOR MOTHERS' TEA That the mothers of the students of the high senior class might be- come better acquainted with one another, was again the purpose of the Senior lNIothe1's, tea, a semi-an- nual affair that was held on Thurs- day afternoon, Oct. 7 in the school library. The room was tastefully decora- ted by a committee of girls under the direction of Bess Pottinger, to represent the living room of a home. Even the piano in the cor- ner of the library was appropriate- ly draped. The mothers were received at the door by Miss Marion Brown, dean of girls, Miss Vera Miller, Kath- 41 rine Grove, Betty Stevens, and Dorothy Hays. VVhile tea was poured by ltlrs. Harry Stevens, lNIrs. Irma Decke1', Dlrs. Gladys Grove, and Mrs. Car- olyn Jonesg entertainment was pro- vided by the musical members of the class, Phoebe Cooper and Eliza- beth Billings, vocalists, and Gene A RECEPTION F New girls and their mothers, w-re welcomed by the old students nl' the school at the semi-annual "i 's reception which was held on the afternoon of August 27, in the school auditorium and cafeteria. Stunts by the different clubs, il- lustrating the work that is being done in themg talks by Miss ltlarion Brown, dean of girls, and Dorothy Hays, president of the Girls' league, songs by the Girls' glee club, these and more, were to be found on the program that pre- ceeded the serving of l'Cf1'CShlIl6IltS and dancing in the cafeteria rooms. VV hile the food was being served, the mothers were formally intro- OLD CLOT Old Clothes day, the hold-over of a patriotic custom inspired by the Wo1'ld war, was celebrated by the student body on Tuesday, October 19. When Stewart Riddell, commis- sioner of special events appeared before the motley array of oddly garbed individuals, who filled tl1e auditorium on that morning, all of the old students knew what to ex- pect. As customary, on past Old Clothes days a committee met the students at the front door to select Alvenn, trumpeter. The students were accompanied on the piano by hlargaret Holman. Among the numerous guests who were introduced at the tea were ltlr. Frank H. Boren, and Profes- sor Charles E. Rugh, of the Uni- versity of California. Guests were received by the girls from three-thirty to five olclock. OR NEVV GIRLS duced to their daughters' new found friends and were made ac- quainted with the dean of girls. Dancing and games terminated the afternoonis prog1'am. The affair was attended by all of the new girls from the seventh to the twelfth grades. They were accompanied by their big sisters, members of the Girls' league who were in corresponding grades with their protegees. This idea of hav- ing big sisters instead of senior ad- visors was introduced this semester by Dorothy Hays and has proved to be a great success, inasmuch as the new girls and their big sisters, have organized a club called the c'lNIeta Adelphon associationf' HES DAY the seven best, worst, and cleverest costumes. After a few moments of suspense the names of the winne1's, who were lNIarian ltlanor, Rudolph Rathaus, Roscoe Peart, Lily Wood, Nancy Ham- matt, Dorothy Anderfuren, and 'VVbodrow Johnson were announc- ed, and amid much applause these ragged specimens made their way to the platform. For several min- utes the student body was allowed a good laugh at their expense.

As is traditional in the school, comical attire made no difference in the perfect gravity with which recitations were conducted during class time, but du1'ing activities period, noon and after school, cos- tumes were admi1'ed, relics of grandmaas day were explained and fun-making was at its height. STUDENT TEACHERS' NIGHT OUT The Student Teachers associa- tion enjoyed a splendid evening in San Francisco's Chinatown, on Friday evening, October 22. The young "professors" met at the flower stand at the San Fran- cisco Ferry building. The first stop that was made by the small trolley that goes up Sac- ramento street, was made at a point, from which the large group of teachers toured through the Chinese night school. This holds session between the hours of five and eight in the evening. By check- ing at the door, it was found that there were eighty persons in the party, all of whom WC1'C utaggedf, so that if any chanced to st1'ay, they could be returned. After causing much disturbance at the school that the portals were closed and all classes dismissed, the gay brigade went on again. A French restaurant was the next resting place for the merry group, and to show their apprecia- tion of the excellent food, each table gave the cook a cheer. The teachers then felt that the Uni- versity of California's football team should also receive a yell which resulted in an "Oski.,, The settlement house was next on the visiting list, after which, for twenty-five cents apiece, the party witnessed a Chinese show, of "high class Chinese drama." Once inside the theater, the or- chestra was found to be in an up- roar. However, it was merely try- ing to accompany the heroine on what sounded like dish-pans. The drama proved interesting but it took the explanation of the door- man, whom they encountered on the way out, to make them under- stand that the performance was in HP3,I1llOI11lI1lC.,, R.O.T-C. DINNER ltlusic, gaiety, and food were some of the attractions offered at the R.O.T.C. fathers, and sons' dinner, that was held in the cafe- teria rooms on Friday evening, September 17. During the repast, wl1icl1 was the usual commendable result of the labors of the cafeteria staff, Eugene Charlesworthas "Ambas- sadors" entertained with numerous popular orchestra selections. After the singing of the school song, led by Rolph Burr and Frank Bowie, assistant yell lead- ers and officers of the unit, these 44 same persons entertained with the Singing of an old favorite, NUni- versity I Love You," written by two graduates of this school, Hub- bard Moffitt and Harry Turner. "The Needlessness of the War,,' was the subject on which the Rev. Oswald VV. S. McCall of the First Congregational church of Berke- ley, addressed the gathering. Re- marks were also heard from Mr. Frank Herberth, president of the Dads' club and Arthur Arlett, who represented the student body. A skit, the scene of which was laid in a cell where Mr. H. Cozens and Dr. C. C. Conrad had been sent to repent of speeding in Mr. Cozen's 1925 Ford, was presented by Captain Wlalter Vance and First Lieutenant James Ressigue. Jim Brown, a guest of the even- ing, offered two vocal selections which immediately followed the main event of the evening, the pre- sentation of the warrants and com- missions to the new officers for this semester. This dinner is said to be only the first of a series of such events to be held this term. .ff K5-""g H T 'li RSJPYGRA.

Ship's regulation is silence at the wheelll' ,Scared out of his wits, Johnny allowed his nerveless fingers to drop from the wheel he had been grasping so tightly. Try as he would he could not control himself. As he raised a shaking hand in salute, a shudder of horror chased down his spine. "Hands on the wheel, you blast- ed lubber! Youlre not sailing up the Boweryln Clearly distinguishable in the pale cold light of the moon, ab-aft the conning tower, stood 'The Rati. His appearance hinted of the supernatural, so sudden, so un- heralded had it been. Under the hard, steely gaze bent upon him J ohnny's flesh crept, and the promise he had just made to him- self to try to regard this man in a Christian light faded out of his mind. As he stood there, arms folded chest in characteristic pose, "The Rat" undoubtedly presented a sinister appearance. There was nothing particularly striking about his body in repose, except the im- pression of super-abundant nerv- ous force at which it hinted. But in every feature of the face and head lurked suggestion of evil. The eyes, small but keen, were his most noticable feature. At pres- ent, although fastened up on J ohnny's face, they seemed to miss not a single detail of the surround- ings. Between them drooped a long pointed nose, the line of which remained unbroken to the top of his oddly-shaped, shiny, black upon head. An unusual scarcity of chin and neck enhanced the rodent-like impression, still further empha- sized by the straight tight line where lips should have been. Just now the line was broken to allow white sharp teeth to gleam through like those of some 'malicious ani- mal. Yellow skin, tightly drawn, hairless, without even the slight re- lief of eyebrows or eyelashes, gave the face a death-like appearance, and over all brooded an expression, repellent, loathsome. Johnny felt his strength slowly ebbing. If it were not that he sensed "The Rats' enjoyment of this triumph of sheer magnetism, he would have been forced to give some sign of it. With the pecu- liarity of the human mind to dwell upon insignificant details at great moments, he found himself won- dering why the beastls sharp cheek- hones did not break through the tight skin. He felt that they would do so at any moment. Un- consciously he prayed for it-that -anything that would force those relentless orbs to release his own. He could not stand it another moment, when-one, two, three, four bells, followed by the bos,n's call, '4Relieve.the wheel and look- outs!" broke the terrifying silence. The spell was dissolved. With a swift salute for the officer and a nudge for Johnny, Patty started for'd as the relief took the wheel from his hands. Johnny shrank quite visibly as he gave his own salute and passed the executive on wobbly legs. Once out of range Patty clapped him on the back sympathetically. "You'll get used to it, kid. The first twenty years are the hardest. Get me, now?,' 46 Johnny tried hard to shake his shoulders indifferently, but the sound of "The Rats' cold voice, even though not directed at them this time, changed the shake to a shudder. "Officer of the deckf' command- ed the executive, Mfurl light sails. Take in your flying jib and set your storm-sails. Theres ai storm brewing west'ard, and I want you to be ready to meet it when it hits us. c'Aye, aye sir! isognrs mate, all hands on deck!" '6Aye, aye sir!U Down the line in response to the bos,n's mate's whistle the word was passed, "All hands on deck!', The executive's foresight and quick-thinking served them well for the command "Aloft', was scarcely given when a terrific blow hit the ship. The sea was turned almost instantly into a churning mill through which the vessel la- bored painfully. Through the tu- mult, the excitement of a desperate attempt to outwit the lashing fury of the wind, at the worst possible time, came the por- tentous cr y, "BI a n over- boardf, All hands were gazing in 1 o p e n- lnouthed won- der at Patty. mounted on the hammock- netting ready for the leap into the rag- ing sea, when the executives curt voice was heard from the bridge, "Back Shanahan! Not a man leaves this ship save at my com- mand! Blau the topsail halyard. Curse you, back!', The habit of obedience is a strong one. J Bristling with fury, but responding to the command, Patty turned to Johnny, an oath on his lips. "lVhat'd I tell you, kid? He s yellow, a coward. It s impossible to lower the boats! He ll let no effort be made to save the lost man! You'll see-H But Johnny was not listening. His expanded eyes were riveted on the bridge, toward which Patty wheeled in astonishment. Only a glimpse he caught, only a flash of "The Ratw, poised like an oily por- poise on the rail-then he was gone. No use for the others to cry, '4It's impossible! Sure death!! The executive of his ship, entire crew at his command, and for the humblest of his men he leaped, himself. As a knife he cleaved the dark heav- ing w a t e r s a n d d i s - appeared. No splash, no rip- ple, his exit was as mys- terious as had been his life. He left be- h i n d h im nothing but a grim t r a d i- ii tion. 47 FREMONT GAME Matching her ability and fight against Fremont's ability, fight, and weight, University found the East Oakland beef a trifle too much to overcome and went down gamely to a 21-14 defeat in her first league game of the season. Despite the heroic efforts of the Cubs on the defense, the Green and Gold squad plunged and ran their way to a second-half victory. It was a case of the team that was behind plugging away till they got in front, and Fremont had last plug. The Tigers scored first, but failed to convert. Desperate play on the part of Uni soon gave the latter a 7-6 lead. Once again Fremont came from behind, and failing to convert, led 12-7 . The Cubs in turn overtook this lead and at the end of the first half were holding the fort with a 14-12 score in their favor. The last half, however, found Fremont using weight to good advantage, and had it not been for the particularly fine work of Dana Long at backing up the line, the resulting score might have been even larger. Johnny Donohue at end featured the playing of the line. AVVAKE AT LAST QContinued from Page 105 ing the hopes of our officers for a great crowd.

Ilowever, the event had been so thoroughly advertised by Robert Perry, com- CUB TRACKS SPORTS After an abscence of two years, O.A.L. swimming came back into the pubic eye on September 7 and resulted in the flashy Roosevelt paddlers taking the first league title in the annuals of the Teddy school. The six teams finished with the following scores: Roosevelt, 23, Technical, 19, Oakland, 15, Mc- Clymonds, 13, Fremont, 7, and University, 5. University's five counters came when Bill Olney placed third in the plunge and fourth in the century, and Art Crist finished thi1'd in the 220 freestyle event.

Leslie hlorgan, husky ltlechanic, was the high point man, scoring 10 of MicCJlymonds' 13 points. Russ Davis, veteran A- corn exponent of the H2O art, broke the only record, negotiating 100 yards of breast-stroke in '1:19. missioner of publicity, with the as- sistance of the finance commission, that a capacity house greeted the raising of the curtain on the first act. The total receipts of the even- ing amounted to mo1'e than six hundred and fifty dollars. 48 LEAVES Like the tiny newborn infant Are the tender leaves of spring- time, Are the light green leaves of springtime, ' Vlfhen from bud they make their breaking. Like the strength and hope of man- hood Are the strong, dark leaves of summer, Are the shady leaves of summer, Vl hen in joy they greet the sun- shine. Like the last weak stand of old age Are the wrinkled leaves of autumn, Are the brown seared leaves of autumn, When in pride they flush with mem'ries. Thus the leaves of spring and sum- mer, And of autumn, natures turning, Bring to mind the three great sea- sons Through which man goes in his lifetime. -Elizabeth Bolt.

Then I tried some descriptiong a silvery lake, VV ith its gracefully gliding canoes, And the happy young people with w. laughter and song Interrupted by many "Kachoos !" No use! Iad be tragic! The heroine cries, V . I'm starving! Please get me some bread !,' Aw, heck, let 'er starve, I,m half dead myself Wfith a tC1'I'lblC cold in my head. A narrative poem caught my fancy at last, So to work I set with a will, Till that "local anemiaw germ in my nose Sent me off to bed with a chill. My fever "riz',. It's that poetry done it! You can see for yourself Ilm most dead! Some day, lNIr. Brownlee, you'll re- member these "woids,', VVhen youlve got a cold in your head! Smart-Lend me a dollar and Illl be indebted to you for life. Smarter - Thatls what I'm afraid of. Funny-You better keep your eyes open around here today. New-VVhat for? Funny-People will think you a fool to go around with them shut! For most of us, especially around Qld Clothes Day, there is considerable consolation to be had from R. L.
