Mai-tm HE SANDS of time have covered the Cub Tracks leading to a place of hibernation. A new Cub has come to the domain of University High-a Cnb new in characteristics but old in tradition. Only memories are left by Cub Tracks. Our new Club will begin immediately using inborn instincts to put University's record in a worth while form. h The new Cub has brought with it many new features and im- provements--the straight back cover, more pages, better paper, more pictures and cuts, and a double-payment system. Because of his magnetic personality and friendly characteristics, the Cub has found a place in the hearts of the entire student body. MAS KS The world is a masqnerazle party, And we all have our ozcn masks to wear. The rielz man pretends he is lzappyg And the poor man pretends lie eloesrff care. Brut iznrlervzeatlz. all tlzese false faces, Tlze eomeely cannot go far, For at nigln' :ellen zee loolf in flze '7llil'?'0l'V, llfe see ourselz'es just as we are. N THE drama of high school activity, masks play a most im- ' portant part, for every one of us is acting a role. Even the most l frank hide their emotions behind false faces of nonchalance or cheerfulness. The defeated candidate, corresponding to the poor man of the poem, smiles and pretends he doesnt care, although disap- pointment is lurking behind the apparent cheerfulness. Athletes or contestants in any other sort of competition assume an air of uncon- cern, which is rarely, if ever, felt. The senior, on the day of gradua- tion, seems undecided whether he will don the mask of grief or glad- ness. And which one of us has not hidden behind the mask of intelli- gence when he hoped it would lead the teacher to believe he had studied? This issue of Cub has chosen as its theme, therefore, to show the stage setting and action for our part in the drama of school life, to express by masks, the symbols of drama, what University's thoughts, activities, and interests really are, and to give recognition to the actors and actresses who havemade 'themselves known. NEW IQEIEIME Bursting upon University high in almost a single swoop, a series of radical changes were introduced this term for the betterment of the school in general. ltlany changes occurred in the daily routine. The hour period, though- somewhat unpopular at first, became more readily accepted later on, because it was found that after the system had adjusted it- self, the average amount of homework was no greater than before. The new club system, while greatly diminishing the membership of all the clubs, proved valuable in the respect that it culled out indiffer- ent students and left only live, active members to carry on the work. With the cafeteria enlarged and new equipment and help added, a single lunch period was made possible. The one unsuccessful change -advisory period at the end of the day-was discontinued early in the term. As to auditorium, period, the students literally 'ctalked themselvesn out of that last semester. Student activities and traditions of long standing have also un- dergone changes of importance. No Student Body night! This change resulted in the return of the carnival, a gala event of the old school. By of feringg more diversified attractions, it was thought that this would be a pleasant change. Because of Univer- sity's prominent part in "Sherwood,U the cast of which was made up of representatives of all the Oakland high schools, the annual Shake- speare contest was abolished this term. The addition of the new por- table bleachers made it possible for large rooting sections to attend basketball games in our own gym. Last of all, the quarterly Cub Tracks underwent a great change and became a semi-annual Cub. It is not our purpose to argue pro or con on the individual in- novations, but only to urge that these changes be judged on their own merits after a fair trial, and not, as is so often the case, be condemned fri: sight because they gare new. 9 5 Another record broken! And this time approximately one hun- dred students can be given credit for the smashing of the record. Up to the spring term, 1929, there were never more than five or six hun- dred persons who purchased both issues of the quarterly Cub Tracks. But this spring the English Eight students got behind the campaign and reached the quota of 1000, which they had set for themselves. So with this goal attained, the Seniors wish to extend their thanks and appreciation for the splendid way in which the student body and faculty have cooperated with them in selling the one thousand pledges.

SENIDIQ MESSAGE .URING.our course of study here, we have watched many senior classes march up to receive their diplomas. We have looked forward to that same occasionljwhen we, too, might be graduated. And now, all too soon, our commencement time has arrived. In bidding farewell to our Alma lllater, pleasant memories flash through our minds. Through our continual associations we have be- come attached to our school., For years we have said goodbye to senior classes, and those words of farewell, once pregnant with mean- ing, have come to signify only a time honored custom to the school. But, to us, their significance has become a well founded dedication of ou1'selves toward ou1'1schoolff'f i 1 i' ' . V ' ' p ' .Our teachers and p1'incipal,iitoof arel deseiiifing of mention, for it has been through their helpful influence Vthat our class has prof g1'essed. So now we wish to sincerely thank them' for the activeiin- terest that they have shown. A r ' i " ' These years of anticipation and dreams of future life have come to an end. VVe now enter new fields. ' Some of us will enroll in a university, while others will enter itlielscliool of lifef' I But wherever we go or whatever we do, we will always: hold iUniversi-ty 'High dear to our hearts. it r. W - 1 i- J ev DANA MURDOCK, Class President DIDNEEDI E, THE class of June 1929, have a distinction of which, we consider, we may well be proud. Six years ago we enter- ed University High, our newness equaled only by that of the new school itself. This University High is now six years old, and we who were pioneers with it are leaving-the first class to go through the three years of junior high and an equal number in senior high. During these past twelve terms the members of our class have witnessed innumerable changes and innovations. VVe waited mo1'e or less patiently until the ramshackle shacks were replaced with our wonderful gym. We saw the U-N-I change from an awkward weekly paper to a daily paper, th-e first high school daily in Cali- fornia. lVe have seen seniors come and go, brought forward into the light for a while only to fade into dim recollections. Through changes in schedules, in programs, in the faculty, and in ourselves, the pioneer class has gone, losing some members on the way and ever gaining new recruits. We have watched the leaders of our class become leaders of the student body, and always we have had one motto-'gThe progress of all, through all, under the leadership of the wisest and best." VVe consider it an honor for anyone to receive a diploma from University High, but isnlt it a thing to be proud of-- being the pioneer class in what is soon to be our beloved Alma Mater? VVe think so. T0 TH E CLASS Change often provokes perplexity and in many cases sadness. Love, hatred, and friendships come and go and oft times are irrevoc- able. Change implies ad justment. VVe may take what life has to offer merely from day to day. VVe may gain our repose and calm through resignation and abnegation. Then, too, we may try to see that life seeks to realize certain values which are eternal and more valuable than life itself. T he latter seems by far the most satisfying attitude to assume in the advent of graduation. Rather than looking upon the graduation of the Class of J une 1929 as an occasion for saying farewell with sadness in our hearts, let us look upon it philosophically as another phase of the problem of change. Without change there can be no progress. We should not for one moment hold you back, Seniors of June 1929, when you are on the brink of putting into practice in business or in higher educa- tion the knowledge, the training, or the experience we have endeavor- ed to make yours in high school.The privilege of en oying your friend ship and fine sportsmanship has been ours. VV'e appreciate your un- tiring efforts and earnest endeavors on behalf of University High School. Your leadership has been "the wisest and the bestf, And so we are proud to see you go forth so well. fortified with those inval- uable qualities of sincerity, loyalty, and steadfastness of purpose that make for success. Our realization of the establishment of these qual- ities in you makes less difficult our adjustment to the change. YVe shall miss you, but it will be our pleasure to welcome you back to University High School and to hear of your accomplishments and success in the new life upon which you are about to enter. VERLX D. BTILIQER, Class Teacher ITAIQIQED NAME! Sixty one members of this graduating class are "pioneers,'. They have been in University high since that opening day in August 1923, and in recognition of this a star has been placed beside their names. MONSTTROUS Robot came to school, His leather neck on a three legged stool, One eye of glass with glarey stare ltiade seniors sigh in dark despair. "Look pleasant pleasef, the Robot said, As the shutter snapped in the back of his head. It clicked and clicked till heid had his whirl At the face of every boy and girl. They removed his film, developed it then, The things we saw made us sigh again, Nevertheless, for your inspection, VVe've put them here in the senior section. n W N 4 1 ' 1 4 W L 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 . 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 L., SENICIQ DANCE TARTING their social activities of the senior year, the class of June '29 entertained the class of December 328 at a formal dance on the evening of lleceinber 7, 1928, in the school li- brary. In a Cl11'lStIl1ZtS atmosphere created by a beautifully decorated Christmas tree and garland of greens, the two classes and their guests danced to the music of Walt Vance's orchestra. The receiving line was composed of D1'. and Mrs. Rice, Dr. and Mrs. Hughes, Dr. Bailey, Miss Marion Brown, Mr. and Mrs. Voll- mer, Dr. and ltirs. VVOod, ltliss Vera ltliller, and lNIiss Vibella ltlartin. Bill Vollmer, Elizabeth Schuster, Dorothy Rubidge, Bill Wood, and Jane Rea were the reception committee. A sign over the library door read: ltlerry Christmas to the class of December 328, and truly expressed the spirit of the dance, which followed the precedent set by previous senior dances in being a com- plete success. The committee chairmen appointed by Bill Vollmer, low senior president, were: Olive Vance, musicg Jane Rea, invitations and eligi- bility, Elizabeth Schuster, programs, ltlax Cramer, decorationsg Helen Hixon, refreshments, Bill VV ood, transportation, and Dorothy Rubidge, clean-up. SENIUIQ MOTHElQ'S TEA One of the most colorful and beautiful features of senior act- ivities was the Senior lNIothe.r's Tea, which was held in the school library on ltlarch 15th. The spring atmosphere prevailed through- out, and the scene was completed by the smiling faces and bright costumes of the senior girls. Daffodils and other flowers lent their fragrance, and the table glistened from the shiny silver tea ser- vice and candalabra. The table was the prize of the decorations and from the shiny silver tea service and candalabra. The table was added to the artistic touch of the affair. ltlothers of the high senior officers presided at the tea table, and the tea was served by the girls of the senior class. Dainty cup cakes accompanied the tea and furnished the refreshments of the afternoon. The girls who served were divided into two groups, one serving from four to five ofclock, and the other from five to five-thirty. The tea was well managed, and the guests were easily and gracefully introduced to other mothers. The guests were entertained by members of the senior class with musical numbers, which were given at short intervals. Among the selections were several by the Senior Boys, Octette, vocal solos by Helen lNIcCormrick, a piano solo by Leola Dixon, and a cello solo by Theron Hall. DINNEIQ DANCE The High Senior Valentine Dance was held on- the evening of February '11 in the teachers, lunch room. A large valentine framed the doorway, and red hearts strung along the ceiling served as a motif for the decorations. Al Ashman's orchestra, composed of Al and several alumni, played while the guests were finding their places. As the dinner progressed a program was offered between courses. The first number, a selection by the orchestra, was followed by songs from the senior boys' octette, a valentine dance featuring Barbara Pomroy and Wilma Fox, a Swedish dialect selection by Howard VVallstrum, and two vocal selections by Helen hIcCormick. The last and biggest feature of the program was a movie filmed by the Wood family in which Bill VVood was cast as the villain. The rest of the evening until 10:00 o'clock was spent with dancing in the library' to the music of Alls orchestra. The dinner, presided over by Dana hfurdock, high senior presi- dent, was a complete success. About 110 of the 150 seniors were present to 611 oy the event. HE REGULAR senior committees appointed by Dana lliurdock, high senior president, have functioned in their various capacities in working up the several articles to be presented during the final week of school. The traditional Hdoc- uments" of Senior Week are extremely difficult to compile in a manner which will make them humorous and interesting. For this reason, the students working on the VVill Committee, the Horoscope Committee, and the Prophecy Committee deserve great credit. Those assisting Olive Vance in drawing up the Senior Will are Fulton Tooker, Spencer Sharp, Clyde Vaughn, Diary Bradbury, Angus hi-cI.eod, Dorothy Rubidge, lXIarylee Nahl, Carol Pulcifcr, Josephine Fenwick, lWaurice Eppstein, and Alan Nelson. lllason VV hitney is chairman of the Prophecy Committee which consists of Helen lXIcCormick, Susan Powell, J ack Frost, J ack Gregory, Ruth Dunn, and Bob Carson. The Horoscope Committee is composed of Howard VVallstrum, chairman, Dorothy llffonohan, Dorothy Bradford, Preston Hunt, and Bill Vollmer. The gift committee has not only the task of se- lecting a suitable gift, but also that of keeping the gift a secret un- til the day of graduation. Dana lWurdock, Bill lNIacGregor, Jane Bea, and Bill VVood are these people.

The inspec- tion car began at the miain station and went down the whole length of the line, stopping at every way station and looking over all the railroad property, afterwards wiring back to the main office reports on material and labor needed for repairs. Then the repair trains fol- lowed and put everything in order. It was in the middle of a blazing July day that the inspection en- gine puffed into the thriving metropolis of Ioladale Qpopulation, 1920 census, 11031. The inspector and his assistant jumped down from the cab of the engine and walked toward the station building. HYou look at the underpinnings first,', said the inspector. "I'll go see what's what insidef, f'All right, sir," replied the assistant, and moved toward the rear of the solitary little building while the inspector entered. It was, as I said, a hot day, and the attendant was half asleep behind his cage when the inspector entered.

'D I LAI30 IQATD DY DAY "Pretty, isnlt it?,, remarked Billy Bunk- er, as the fumes of chlorine gas rose thickly from the glass beaker resting on the laborat- ory table. VVhat did he care if chlorine was in the halogen family? He had always belonged to the Bunker family and nobody ever remarked about that. The slow permeating gas intrigued him and lured him to a wide green meadow beneath a dazzling summer sky, the beauty of which was confused by the miserable thought of millions of buzzing electrons darting at an average speed under an ordinary temperature and pressure. No longer could he enjoy the warm intoxicating sunlight, for it was entirly subordinate to the miserable sensation that he was a victim of ultra-violet rays and radiant energy. Fifteen pounds air pressure pushed on all sides, he was overwhelmingly concious of his specific gravity, and he was fairly bursting with his linear coefficient of expan- sion. He was even aware of his bodily composi- tion of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, "so easily dissolved in the presence of sulphuric acid, carbon tetrachloride, or molybdate solut- ionf, he thought. Ordinarily on as beautiful a day as this Billy would hunt for a secluded brook and sit on the bank and fish awhile. Never again! Now he found himself instinctively plotting murder by deoxidizing the water and netting a large haul of astonished river trout. Plc could think of a number of instances whereby his scientific knowledge could be applied des- tructively, when a voice from far behind sud- denly released the tension of his thoughts. YVl1eeling about quickly, he found himself in the presence of a positive dynamic force which rendered l1im completely negative. The magnetic force was pulling him violently, and he was being subjected to a transmigration to another realm. Darkness fell, and suddenly the sky became lit with myriads of Bunsen burners, disclosing a forest of tall graduated cylinders and an underbrush of beakers and test tubes. Far away could be seen a pool of shining mercury. mllhis is the world of pure science," came the voice, and somehow Billy seemed to rec- ognize the voice of his professor, Mir. Methyl. "First you are to take a swim in hiercurious Lake, after which you will meet the atom-at- large." 'c'l'here's something phoney about this," thought Billy. "Can it be punishment for my murderous throught about the fish? lily body canit stand the terrifi-c pressure of mercuryf' And he shuddered to think of what an "atom-at-largei' might do to him. However, he felt himself drawn forward by Professor lVIethyl, who was rushing along the winding paths through the test tubes toward lhl.CI'C1ll'l' ous Lake. A sudden chemical thought struck ter- ror to Billyis heart. 'cThe professor is posi- tive, I'm negative, and the mercury will con- duct us, but where ?', thought Billy. No sooner said than done, like the thun- derbolts of Jupiter they were hurled to the onoosite shore of this tremendous lake and brought face to face with the "atom-at- largef'. But, strange to say, the 'catoni-at large" was not at all what Billy expected, be- ing nothing else but a big four ring merry- go-round, in the center of which a pon- derous steam Calliope was playing jubilantly. "Get aboardf, said the professor, and Billy' jumped on Epicurus, the nearest elec- tron, thinking it was just like the horse at Neptune Beach. He could see ahead of him the professor on an electron labeled Democri- i, -i-P-Q in 1 fx .7 A ..

"They're the rings of Saturnf' he explained. "Grab one. Hold on tightf, screamed the professor, "VVe,re about to enter the cathode rayf, "Darkness again enveloped them. A green light in the distance was rapidly growing bigger and bigger, and a loud humming ac- companied it. As the noise became unbearable Billyis disaster seemed eminent. 'Tm done forf, he thought, as he buried his face in the hair of the electron. He experienced a violent whirling sen- sation. HI know what it is," thought Billy. c'The atom has split i11to its component parts and 1'm lost in the Universef' He summoned enough courage to peek through the hair of the electron and was consoled to discover Professor hlethyl ahead ol' hinr still exerting his positive influence. The professor, no longer wearing his pedantic expression, was thoroughly enjoying his ride and making whoopee on his ele-ctron. lXIr. lNIethyl was embarrassed to be caught off his guard, and he turned about announcing severely to Billy: "Next we'll enter the ionic equation!" But Billy objected. The professor conceded. 4'VVell, the bell is ringing and perhaps we had better take that up later." By this time both his own electron and the professor's were slowing down and taking on a sort of rocking motion. Ahead of him Billy could see the door of the laboratory standing open. VVith an easy gliding motion the professor headed in, and Billy followed. "Bly boy," spoke 'Professor ltlethyl, and his tone was soothing. "He,s coming tof' and "He's all rightf, were strayed voices reaching Billy's ear, and Billy responded. 'cSure, I'm all rightf, he said. "It was darned good!" --FUL'roN Tooiimic. 1,-Q. A 1 '47 .

CLYDE VAUGHN WEIDO LANCIONE APTAINED by VVeido Lancione of University High School, the Montgomery Wa1'd team of Oakland Won the World championship title in the first annual American Legion Baseball League. VVeido played center-field and played as great a season as any junior will ever play. With teams entered from every state in the Union, heled his team to the top, playing versa- tile baseball for five straight months. The record set by this team in its flash through the VVestern diamonds, and its whirlwind finish in the Comisky Ball Park in Chicago, will not be broken for many years. ' Wlhen the call was sounded for teams to enter the league, Phil ltfoore, a representative of Montgomery VVard Company, secured Leroy Sharp, then coach at Fremont High School, to coach the team. Sharp visited each of the high school coaches and had them recom- mend the boys in the schoo'l who could make the age limit. Any boy who would not be older than seventeen by the end of 1928 was eligi- ble to play in the league. Ian lN1cKenzie, then coach at University, recommended VVeido, and for that reason this story was written. A practice was called at Fremont High in J une and sixty-five boys turned out. At the end of one Week's practice the squad was cut to eighteen boys. YVeido was among these, although he had not attended the practices during the Week. There were f if ty-f ive teams entered in Oakland, and the first game in Oakland was Montgomery W'ard vs. lWaxwell Hardware Company. This game was played at the Oakland Ball Park, and was preceded by a ceremony featured by a parade from the City Hall to the park. Bfontgomery VVards Won this game 12-0. This was the first of a string of eighteen games that Blontgomery VVards played and Won. Foillowing this the boys played five more games with teams from Oakland, and then met Alameda, Berkeley, and Albany for the coun- ty championship. They won all three of these games and then played San Jose for the Northern California district championship. Wain- ning this meant a trip to Los Angeles for the state championship se- ries, and the boys showed their desire to go by winning 22-0. The series at Los Angeles was played in the new VVrigley Field grounds, which was, according to VVeido, the best park the team play- ed in all season. The opponents for ltlontgomery VVards in this series were lwill Valley and Santa lNIonica. Up to this time no team had yet scored on ltlontgomery VVards. The first game was an easy victory for the champs, lNTill Valley falling before a 241-2 avalanche. This vic- tory meant that the team would play Santa Monica for the champion- ship of Califo1'nia. The game witn Santa ltfonica was the hardest game of the entire eighteen played during the season. For the first five innings not one man passed second base, and in the sixth Santa ltlonica scored one run. The champions then came back with three, and the game ended with the score still 3-1. The boys were now champions of California. Losing one game meant dis- qualification for any team from this point on, and the team was rather uneasy in these important games. The Nevada and Arizona champions Were with the Californians, and one team would draw a bye. Weido Won the draw, and California met the winner of the Nevada-Arizona contest at the Oakland ball park, Arizona beat Nevada and in turn was beaten by Cal' ifornia which made Montgomery VVards the area chanpions. This meant a trip' to Denver to play in the Western United States semi-finals with four other teams. The boys played Omaha in the first game at Denver and camie out ahead in a 14-1 game. This placed them in the finals with St. Paul, whom they defeated 4-0 in a close contest. The bunch of boys from St. Paul made a fine exhibition of good, clean youths, and surely deserved mentioning for their good sportsmanship. When the boys Won this game, they were nowr champions of the West of the lVIississippi River section, and Were now in the VVorld series with W'orcester, ltlassachusetts. This is the highest sei ies in Junior baseball, and the boys who play in this ser- ies are good. During their stay in Denver, several contests were held and four members of the World champs Won prizes. Weido Won a pair of sliding pads for being the greatest outfielder west of the ltlississippi River. He also Won a portable phonograph for being the most valuable player on his team. Whitney, who played first base for the team, won two bats for being the best first baseman west of the ltlississippi. Vierra and Hardt, shotstop and pitcher, won a mitt and a gold watch respectively for their ability. The whole team was presented with knickers by the Denver branch of ltlontgomery VV ard ,Company. From Denver the team journeyed to Indianapolis to rest for four days before the little world series. They stayed at the Elkis Club as guests of Dan Sowers, and were surely treated wonderfully. From this f our- day rest the team went to Chicago to meet WO1'CCStC1i in the world series. The team winning two of the three games would be world champions of Junior Baseball. The boys won the first game 41-0, and VVorcester used their best pitcher that day. The next day the team battered the second pitcher for a 12-2 win and became the champions of the world. The reward for this was seeing the Wforld Series between New York and St. Louis which was still a month off in November. Here again the team was presented with knickers, sweaters, and other clothing by the Chicago hlontgomery VVard Company. The team then returned home in triumph and were given ban- quets and dinners for their wonderful iilaying. The Southern Pa- cific was scheduled to arrive in Oakland about three o'c1ock P.M., and there was a band and many people crowded at the station to acclaim the heroes. The train, however, was four hours late, and this put a damper on the well laid plans. During the two and a half weeks that the boys were here before going East again, they were guests at many dinners and honorary banquets throughout the East Bay. VVhen the train left Oakland, bearing the boys bound for New York, Captain VVeido Lancione was taken ill. By the time they had reached Chicago he was too weak to stand up, and twenty minutes after they had reached New York he was taken to the Lexington Hos- pital. He remained here for five days, sick with tonsilitis, bronchi- tis, and grippe. He lay in bed while the remainder of the team watched the two games played in New York, and when the team we11t to St. Louis to see the remaining games, the little captain re- mained behind in the New York hospital. VVhen he was well again, he continued on to St. Louis to join his team mates, with the expecta- tions of seeing at least one VVorld Series game. He arrived in St. Louis just after the game had ended, and joined his team, which lef' that night for home. i VVhen the boys were in New York they were presented with gold watches from the American and National Leagues. Kenesaw Lan- dis, connnissioneri of baseball, made the presentation. and was very interested in the team. VV hen the world-beaters returned home the second time, they If were greeted by thousands of cheering fans. A parade from First and Broadway to the City Hall was held in their honor. Mayor Davie made a complimentary speech, and the whole team. was treated with a wonderful reception. This is the general story of the teamls record throughout the season. It tells briefly how the team, captained by one of our own school and team, successfully and without hesitation swept through 8,200 teams throughout the United States to win the World title for ltfontgomery Wfards. There are, however, a few in-teresting facts concerning the team which can be set apart from the main story. The team won all eighteen games played. Fourteen of these were by shut-outs. The team had four out of nine on the All-Legion team. The awards won were: gold baseballs for winning the Oakland title, medals and certificates and the Howard Savage and Del How- ard Trophies for winning the California championship. Knickers were presented to the boys at Denver, and the indi- vidual awards were won there also. Medals were won at Denver for winning the VVestern area title. A complete outfit of clothing was presented to each member of the team at Chicago. A pennant and gold watches were presented at New York for winning the world title. Vfhile in Chicago, VVeido spoke over the radio at Hotel La Salle where the team was staying. At each city, Los Angeles, Denver, Indianapolis, Chicago, and New York, the team went on sight seeing trips as guests of the city. VVeido was in eighteen toss ups for last licks and he won seven- teen out of eighteen. He also drew three byes out of three chances. VVeido and three other members of the team are eligible to play in the league next year, but due to a new ruling made since last sca- son, they will be unable to play on the same team together. Four of the boys were watched by major league scouts, each being personally interviewed. VV'eido was interviewed by Bill Essex of the New York Yanks. Their record should stand unbroken for many years to come, for it is one that seems impossible to break. Our school should cer- tainly be proud of this boy, for it isn't every school that has the most valuable player on a world champion team. Do not think that this boy has reached his prime either, for before he has finished his base- baill career, his name will be written across baseballis hall of fame in capital letters. ltfaurice Eppstein.

W CAQQP to Q 3 Q 3 , W'itl1 rapid shift of scene and change of cast Each act in order passes in review- The carnival, zsxssemblies, rallies, plays, The operetta, teas, and dances, too. v The student council is the legislative and executive body of the school. It is the duty of this g1'oup to govern student body affairs. The members this term aref president, Bill Wfoodg vice-president, and commissioner of girls' affairs, Olive Vance, clerk, Ellen Taylorg commissioners, Elbert Ashland, Preston Hunt, Howard VVallstrum, Leola Dixon, and George Wood, Treasure1', Bill lNIacGregorg chief and associate judges, Jack Gregory and Jane Rea, and yell leader, Elmer Lawrence. ' BDIJNCING AND VIGILANCE In the student body administration of a school, one of the im- portant duties is the carrying out of the rules set forth by the school government. To this end various types of bodies are organized. In University High School there is a Vigilance Committee for enforcing the rules and precepts. It is a body of students organized under the chief justice, Jack Gregory, and the associate justice, Jane Rea, and chosen by them. It is their duty to Watch the action of students around the building and around the school campus. They are to see that the students keep the grounds clean, that 'Luprisingsn are quelled, and that laws are generally not disobeyed. Although it has encountered difficulties at times in its proced- ure, the Vigilance Committee has been successful. Order and disci- pline in the halls and studies has been good. The members of the committee have been diligent in their efforts of good order and have asked students to cooperate in the problems of enforcement with them. Along with the Vigilance Committee is the Bouncing Commit- tee, a body organized through the efforts of our Student Body Presi- dent, Bill Wood. It was started because of conditions of disorder in the school assemblies. Since its establishment the Bouncing Com- mittee has served the purpose Well, and better order and discipline has been noted in our assemblies. GIIQLI' LEAGUE HE GIRLS' League Council is the executive body ot the Girls' League. This group carries out business which is too intricate and detailed to be left to all the girls as a Whole. The council is made up of representatives from all grades, presi- dents of girls, clubs, and all student body officers who are girls. The officers are: president, Olive Vance, vice-president, Doro- thy Rubidgeg clerk, Ruth Dunng treasurer, Mary Johnsong and song leader, Frances Branch. BOYI' LEAGUE The Boys' League Council, an organization as old as the school, has as its purpose to promote good fellowship among the boys. During each semester the boys sponsor assemblies and a dinner which is anticipated by them through the Whole semester. The Boys, League Council is composed of all boy commissioners, presidents of all boys, clubs, and class representatives. The officers for this term are: Preston Hunt, president, Dow Bonnell, vice-pres- identg and Fulton Tooker, secretary. Hz Y Ocxrscg S' arms" Laaeuc.

The prizes Were in the form of sweater emblems, a blue and gold lyre to Louise, and a blue and gold megapih-one to J oe. The contest was open to the student body and several songs and yells were handed in to the judging committee. This contest was the first of its kind to be tried out at University High and it proved a success. The Words for the Winning song follow: TO OUR U.H.S QTune of Stars and Stripes Foreoerj Let us sing to the one school of all, To the one Whom our praises are ringing.

SDADE The "Spirit-Raising" Spade Rally for the Uni-Tech basketball game was held on February 26 in the auditorium with Elmer Law- rence in charge of the program. Elmer openedthe rally with the customary speech about the tra- ditions of the spade. He then introduced J. E. VVa'sson, member of' the team, who gave a "pep" talk. Following this the winners of the song and yell contest, Louise Gossler and Joe Stringfellow, were presented with emblems. Some new yells Were then. tried. The next thing on the program was they selling of blue and gold leis by the Rainbow Club girls. Following this, Leola Dixon made an announce- ment of the Spade Day noontime dance. George Fogarty sang "Roses of Yesterday," which he dedicated to the high senior class. This was received with much applause. Following more yells came a skit presented by Walter Cleary and J oe Stringfcllow. There were a few more yells and the assembly was dismissed. It pepped up the school, for there was a larger turnout for the Tech game than any other game played this season. I. IB. CAIQIDI M To arouse spirit f or buying student body cards was the purpose of the special assembly held in the auditorium Friday, February 8, during advisory period. "Walk the Plankf a miniature operetta given by the Boys' Glee, was the main feature of the assembly. The leading parts in this skit were taken by Bill Vollmer, the Pirate chief, and Charles Bowdish, the mate. The other members of the glee acted as the crew and culprits. Jacobus Ten Brock, Commissioner of Publicity, presented a sales talk in which he urged all the student body to buy cards. CUI3 After a few opening remarks by Bill Wood, Student Body President, a Cub assembly was held on Friday, March 1. Billy Mac- Gregor, business manager of the semi-annual, was the chairman, and he opened the program by introducing Hilda Hirsch and her orches- tra who played "I Must Have That Man" and "She's Funny That VVay.', Clyde Vaughn, Phil Wood, and Phil's dog gave a short, clever skit. The dog did tricks, and Phil tried to become a Cub salesman and sell Clyde a ticket. George Fogarty, accompanied by Glen Osborne at the piano, sang his first hit, "Laugh, Clown, Laughf' George re- ceived his usual hearty applause. The highlight was the drawing of ten Cub tickets. The people whose names were drawn by Elizabeth Schuster, editor, received the fifty cent half of their ticket free. The lucky ones were Clinton J ones, Miss Vera Miller, Stanley Coppel, George Dodson, Leola Dixon, Hilda Hirsch, 'Mu1'iel Fournier, lllichael Cushing, Bernard Bowron, and Roberta Hutson. CHAN6 On March 6 the holders of Student Body cards were dismissed to the auditorium for the Block U Assembly and the movie "Chang" Six men on the basketball team were awarded letters and two R.O.T.C. officers were given sweaters. Captain Dana lilurdock, Howard VV'allstrum, and J. E. Was- son won their first U, while YVeido Lancione, George Hadlen, and Joe Arata received stars. Preston Hunt, Commissioner of Boys, Af fairs, made the presentation. The second part of the assembly was the awarding of the sweat- G I GLS' FEFXLLV COMMETTGG' ers given by Sergeant J ones to Kenneth Butler and Richard San- ders for making higher than ninety per cent in the recent 9th Corps Area Match. lllajor McClure made the presentation of these. Rich- and's record was 541 out of a possible 600 points, and Kennethis was 5344 out of the 600. The movie 4'Chang," a story of manis struggle in the ungles of Java, was the last thing on the assembly program. The students showed their appreciation of this well-planned assembly by their good attention. BDYI' LEAGUE A Un March 11, 1929, a meeting of the Boys, League was presided over by Preston Hunt. After the meeting was called to order the election of class representatives to the Boys, League was held. The meeting then proceeded to the main attraction of the assem- bly, a boxing match between Fulton Tooker and Earl Clark. The referee was Al Sabatte. In a two round encounter the fight provided a f ew thrills. Tooker, with a punch that missed, fell to his knees on one occasion. Clark several times swung with great force only to find he had hit the air. After a fast encounter the judges called it a draw. All boys present enjoyed the assembly and felt that it was a great success. They hoped that more programs of this type would be arranged in the future. MINSTIQELS Thursday, Mfarch 27, an assembly was held in the auditorium after school. Elbert Ashland, commissioner of special events, thank- ed eve1'yone for the support of Carnival Day. Then Bill Vifood turned the assembly over to the four colored minstrels, who put on one of the best presentations this term. The quartet sang HOld lNIacDonald Had a Farmf, "The Tree in the VVood," and a number of Negro Spirituals. IDIQUDUCTIUNS HE DRADIATIC department opened a promising semester with two short plays, 6'Rosalie,' and '4The Slave with Two Faces," on Thursday, February 7. The first was a lively comedy played by Josephine Fenwick as llladame Bol, Jack Frost as Monsieur Bol, and the part of Rosalie, the maid, was cleverly portrayed by Barbara Pomroy. Wlhen the play opened, llfladame and lllonsieur Bol were excitedly awaiting the ar- rival of an aristocratic guest and discussing the arrangements for the evening. The greatest difficulty lay in posting Rosalie on her behavior toward the guest. She seemed very ignorant and stupid, breaking cups and doing foolish pranks, but the play ended in a laugh when she proved herself a little more clever than her employers. 'KT he Slave with Two Facesu was of a more serious. nature. The sce11e opened upon a beautiful setting in the woods. Grace Yohn and Silvia lllay Cady, two queens, were waiting for Life, cleverly played by Bill lVood, to pass in order that they might ask him for the things which they wanted. Life came, and to the queen who commanded him he was a slave, but to the other who feared and yielded to him he was a cruel master. The play was beautifully symbolic. SHEIQWOUD That "Sherwood," the pageant presented by the combined Oak- land high schools, was one of the most truly beautiful performances ever given in Oakland was the opinion of all who were fortunate enough to see it during the Principals, Convention in Blarch. Robin Hood and his merry men lived once again in the arena of the New Oakland High School. Generous hearted King Richard once more proved too lenient with his malicious brother John. Blondel sang most appealingly to his lost monarch, and our hearts ached for poor Shadow-of-aleaf as he crouched outside the closed gates. Perhaps it was the lights, perhaps it was the coloring of the cosw lZllI1l6S, perhaps it was the wonderful unification of it all, but what ever it was, we lived and felt with ltilaid ltfarion and her gallant lover. Surely a thing of beauty was created, and in the hearts of all who saw it, there was inspi1'ed a bit of feeling for that other realm somewhere out beyond that of daily life. "Sherwood" was an adaptation from Alfred Noyes' "Sher- wood." It was given in place of the yearly Shakespearean contest, which occupied the dramatic energies of our high schools' students every spring. The members of the cast should certainly be commended upon their most praiseworthy acting. Frances Branch, from University High School, made an excellent regal Queen Eleanor. lllarion lllanor, also from University High, gave a lovely interpretation of lllarion Fitzwalter. Other characters from University were: Leon- ard Dart, Mush, the lWiller's song Jack Frost, Robin Hood, William llieyer, Little John, Helen Clement, VVidow Scarlet, Leonard Car- ter, Sheriff 3 Florence Barcelon, Noviceg and a group of outcasts. One could not hope to praise each individual who helped in the performance, but the least one can do is to give all the praise due to lNIiss Doris McEntyre, who, out of the many different individuals, polished and finished the beautiful performance that was so greatly en oyed by the audiences. DDEIQETTA "Riding Down the Skyf' this year's annual operetta, was pre- sented before a full house, Friday evening, April 19. As the name suggests, the plot was a Uflyingn one. Besides a pilot and an airplane, however, there was a lllexican revolution, the discovery of an oil gusher, and a romance with a Spanish senorita. The presence of a wealthy aged suitor, seeking the hand of Carmelita, the daughter of the president, who needs money to pre- vent a revolution, also complicates matters. The cast was: Everett Schwarzmann, Ben Baker, the pilot, Elizabeth Smith, Carmelita, daughter of presidentg Barbara Pomroy Pepita, her friend, Earl Sweetwyne, Joshua Scroogins, mechanicg Theron Hall, Don Pedro, president, Frances Branch, Rosa, duennag John Conrad, Don Jose, suitor of Carmelitag Bert liflorton, hir. lNfIacDonald, financier, Bill Vollmer, Francisco Bandino, revolu- tionistg lifargaret Barton, lllarie, his wife, Charles Ebinger Fernando Gonzales, president's bodyguard, and Howard Horner Sergeant Timothy Riley of the U. S. llfarines. Leonard Tonson and 'Elva Dimpfef danced several Spanish dances. The senior glee clubs were the chorus. DANCE DIQAMA N INDIAN scene was the setting for the annual Dance- Drama presented iMay 22 at Mosswood park by the girls of University high school. The theme of the story is as follows: Stardust, daughter of Sit- ting Bull, and Fleetdeer, the son of Chief Black Coyote, meet and fall in love with each other while their fathers are at a peace confer- ence. It is against the tribal customs for an Indian to marry out of his own tribe, so the two lovers keep their adoration a secret. After the peace plans are made, Chief Black Coyote returns to his own tribe with his son. In the winter the two tribes are situated far away from each other, but in summer they are close together. The next summer Fleetdeer and Stardust are brought together again. However, scouts discover them together one evening and force them to leave. The boy and girl, realizing that they are to be sep- arated, meet for the last time and leap together into the river. The Indian god of love takes pity on the two sad lovers. Every summer two doves meet in the evening in the little glade. They are the spirits ofthe Indian boy and girl. They remain together until the first sign of fall, and then they bid each other farewell. The cast, selected by tryouts, was: Stardust, Yvonne Hostetterg Fleetdeer, Ruth Aiken, Sitting Bull, Evelyn Schlictingg Black Coyote, Ethel Patterson, Indian Scout, ltlaybelle Clhapmang Frozen Fingers, Florence Bianchi, Sun, Jane Rea, ltioon, Ira Tharsingg Nightingale, Elva Dimpfelg and two birds are lNIargaret Peterson and Shirley T odd. DIQAMATIC NIGHT As the Cub goes to press before the actual performance of Dra- matic Night, it is possible to include only a pre-write-up of the event. The dramatics classes spent quite a while considering the plays to be put on for this semi-annual performance. They chose some unusual ones, each varying greatly from the others. Cn the program there are four plays, listed in the order in which they appear: "The Thrice Promised Bridef a very interesting Chin- ese playg '6The Patchwork Quilt," a serious play filled with dramag NSweeps of 798g" and "Romancers." ACTIVITIEI VVAKENING from its six years' hibernation, Carnival day, Friday, lNIarch 22, was welcomed to the school once more with a spirit of whoopee. It offered sideshows, stunts, food sales, vaudeville, and a movie, among the other revelries, in its sen- sational comeback. A cold rain that swept the school put no damper on the ardor with which the festivities were en joyed. "'A Trip through the Islands of the VVorld" was the theme for the event. The gala day started at the end of the fourth period with a parade of Carnival stunt participants, which led to the food booths stationed in the front hall. From the time fourth period was dis- missed to the time for commencing the stunts, the front hall was a sea of surging pulsating, joy-seekers. Th-ey waved hot dogs, Waffles, and soda pop bottles in one hand, While struggling in front of the ticket boothes, striving to buy tickets for more hot dogs, Waffles, and soda pop. Teachers, less enthusiastic over the idea of being crushed to pulp by a mob of revelrous Whoopee-makers, took refuge behind the glass Windows of the office and Watched with trepidation the joyous carousal going on in the front hall. By the time the rev- elers had gorged themselves to capacity, the floor was ankle-deep ir confetti, streamers, potato salad, peanut shells, and potato chips. Thirteen sideshows, each announced by a barker, made up the main entertainment of the day. The Faculty Minstrel Show, Strong lllan from Borneo, Prisoners, Base, Gypsy Tumblers, Butterfly that Stamped, H7 Vaudeville, lllagicians of the VVorld, Orpheum and You,re-it-you-see, The Dessert Song, Iceland, H12 lNIovie, Ellis Island, and the rifle range were the afternoon presentations. A horse and buggy were secured by the H11 class and admission was charged to taxi about the school. 'cTWo Arabian Nihtsf' with vaudville acts between the reels, was presented in the evening to complete the biggest, most frivol- ous merry-making day in the history of the new school. Elbert Ashland, commissioner of special events, revived Car- nival day, and he and his central committee were responsible for its success. I-II-Y HE UNIVERSITY Hi-Y is an organization that meets outside the jurisdiction of the school, but deserves mention here because all its members are Uni students and Blr. Cozens is the club adviser. lNIeetings are held weekly at an informal dinner. A great deal is don.e in discussing school affairs and givin g them an organized push towards success. Don Bird is the president of the club. Preston Hunt is vice-president and has charge of the initia- tions. J. E. VVasson is secretary-treasurer. Bert lNIorton is yell- leader, and Bill VVood and Halford Earlei hold office as student advisers. At present the club is especially interested in making an amateur movie. The plot is very melodramatic. According to all predictions the picture will be a rival to Hollywood,s best. Carl Fay, Phil VVood, Lee Borne, Pete Van Valkenburgrh, George Hadlen, Fulton Tooker, Bill Brock, Andy W3llSt1'Hm, El- bert Ashland, Joe Stringfellow, and Tommy Spilker were the Hi-Y initiates this semester. CLUB DAY Club Day, an entirely new experiment in this school,s program of cooperation, made itself apparent to the student body on Feb- ruary 7. The Club Presidents, luncheon was the first event on the day,s program. Olive Van-ce, Girls, League President, officiated, and ex- plained that the meeting was an attempt to create feeling among club presidents. The entertainment at 3 o,clock consisted of seven numbers pre- sented by different clubs and individuals. Those participating were Leonard Tonson, Hilda Hirsch, the Junior G.A.A., Gi1'ls, Art Club, International A. O. Club, Dorothy Drury, and the Girls, Glee Club sextet. Janet Lamb was the chairman of the affair. This Club Day is something new in every way, and it is to Betty Lawton we owe thanks for the successful manner in which it was carried out. Because of its great success, it will probably become a tradition in the school. IQIFLE TEAM HE RIFLE Team of the University High School, organi- zed for the purpose of giving boys interested in shooting an opportunity to develop their prowess and ability, has emerged from an interesting season. In their practice and other efforts at the home gallery, the boys gained a fundamental knowledge of shooting and also theoretical practice. Then came preparation for the match at the State rifle range at Leona Heights. As there was competition with the regular army men, the best material was sent and practice was essential. The match this year lasted for three days. The first day was practice day, and the following ones were given over to the final shooting. The range is 200 yards, and a thirty caliber United States Army rifle is used. There are three possible classes to be attained. The first is the expert class, the second is sharpshooter, and the third is marksman. Richard Sanders was the only one from this school to be- come a sharpshooter. All the others with 190 or above are nrarksman. An improvement was noted over the scores of last year, and a favorable showing was made by the team for this school. GIIQLI' IQECEIDTIUN Against a background of spring flowers and modernistic designs, the Big Sisters gave their reception to the new girls Friday, January 21, after school in the libra1'y. The lilies, daffodils, and acacia helped to camouflage the library and make it appear a lovely reception room. As each guest entered, she was introduced by her big sister to ltliss ltlarion Brown, dean of girls, Dr. George A. Rice, principal, Bill VVood, student body president, Betty Lawton, big sister to all the girls, and Olive Vance, president of the Girls, League. Then they were all served refreshments of ice cream, cookies, and candy by Helen Schrader and her committee. Several welcoming speeches were given by those who had stood in the receiving line, and then a program of music and a reading followed. Frances Branch read the Girls' creed, Helen lNIcCormick sang two songs, Hilda Hirsch played two piano solos, and a quartet of old girls played several selections and the school song. STAGE CIQEW N UNSEEN but necessary group of volunteer workers is always behind scenes on our school stage. Their work is never finished. The body, known as the Stage Crew, pre- pares the stage for every assembly, rally, or dramatic production. Between the times when the audience sees the effects of their efforts, the crew is usually busy preparing for some future event. Sometimes it is necessary to carry on work simultaneously for two or even three presentations. This is especially apt to occur during the crowded days near graduation or the Christmas play. The members of the crew have had an average of one or two terms, experience. The manager usually has had two years, experi- ence and his assistant a year or a year and a half. Since membership is not in any way compulsory, no one seems to mind doing his share of the work. Excursions made to other schools have shown that our stage has the best combination of stage equipment in the district. The school is also fortunate in having excellent lighting equipment. The stage crew consists of the following: Hal Earle, managerg John Bliddleton, assistant, and Bill Lippin-cott, Bill Meyers, Ken- neth VVishart,- and Bill Sammons. Evan Jeffries has charge of the electrical department. Ivan Hudson is his assistant, and VValter Cleary and Eddie Lindsey are on the crew. LDW IENICD DANCE The Low Senior Dance, which opened the term's program for the low twelves, was held on Friday, February 15, in the school cafe- teria. The room was decorated in spring flowers with orange pre- dominating to carry out the color scheme. Five cents a program was the assessment imposed upon each member so that money did not have to be taken from the school treasury to finance the affair. The purpose of the dance, according to J. E. VVasson, was to build up unity among class members. Dorothy Snyder and her committee served punch between dances. The other committees appointed by J. E. VVasson, class president, were as follows: Kenneth Butler, clean-up, Chester Bolton, publicity, and Earl Tretheway, entertain- ment. HE UNIVERSITY High School Chess Club first gained wide prominence last term by winning the championship of the San Francisco Bay Region High School Chess League. After a tournament in the club to decide the team to represent the school, the following men were chosen for the seven-man team: Guthrie McClain, p1'esident of the club, Al Ashman, Francis Crofut, John Finger, Harold Haf ford, Nathan lllay, and Bill L'Hommedieu. In the East Bay section of the league, University started off by winning from Fremont 4-3. Piedmont next succumbed to our team. This score was also 4-3. Uni was next scheduled to play Tech, but their team failed to show up for the game, giving us a victory by for- feit. This made our boys the East Bay champs. They were to meet lllission High, which had beaten Polytechnical and Lowell for the championship of San Francisco in a th1'ee game title series. The Blis- sion team defeated Uni in a close match 4-3, and took a strong lead in this important series. University came back in the next match with a will to win, and defeated them 5-2. The feature here was McClain's brilliant playing in his win over the individual champion of the league. The last and deciding game of the trio was won by the Cubs, four and one half- two and one half. This made University the champion of the league. As an emblem of their supremacy a large silver cup was donated by Roos Brothers. at Stephens Union, Saturday evening, lNIa1'ch 9. Professor Branch, champion chess player of the University of California faculty, played about 35 simultaneous chess matches at the presentation. This year the team again started off with a bang by defeating Fremont 5- 2. The Chess Sharks also held our old rival, Tech, to a 6-11 score. The team is the same this year with the exception of Robert Lang in Nathan Mayis place. BASKETBALL DI N N EIQ With an interesting entertainment and an appetizing menu, the Girls, League Council honored the University basket-ball team on March 7 in the cafeteria rooms at the customary annual basketball dinner. In the course of the dinner entertainment was given. Phil W'ood's orchestra played, Leola Dixon gave a readingg Helen Mc- Cormick sang two vocal selectionsg and Hilda Hirsch of f ered a piano solo. Speeches were made by Olive Vance, Coach Allison, Miss Jacobs, Dr. Rice, and Dana Murdock. After the dinner, dancing was enjoyed to the strains of Phil Woodls orchestra. BENEEIT DANCE For the purpose of raising money for J oe Lancione, who broke his leg in the Berkeley game, the baseball team gave a benefit dance in the gym during the noon period on March 27. Music was furnished by Jimmy Miller's orchestra. Norman Parish, manager of the affair, and Olive Vance, Girls' League president, worked with the team in putting the dance over and appointed a reception committee to receive the chaperons . The committee was made up of Leola Dixon, Dorothy Bradford, Marie Lamb, and Jane Rea. Patrons were Miss Beatrice Burnett, Miss Katherine Lindsay, and Coach Dave Snyder. Tickets for the affair cost ten cents, and at the presentation of a ticket students were excused from classes at twelve o'clock. This allowed a whole hour for the dance. IGHT students comprise the regular U- N- I staff. They a1'e Betty lNfIc Lauchlan, Ruth Janson, Irene Hend1'ickson, Dorothy Snyder, and Alan Nelson, daily editors, respectively, Bill Grover sport editor, and Frank VVootten, his assistant, and lllary Gale, business manage1'. I It is the duty of these students to publish and distribute the paper each day. This is one of the most difficult tasks to accomplish well, a11d everything is supposed to be carried on "without a hitchf, The members of this staff are supposed to serve the student body by re- porting all the news when it is news, to make humorous "cracks," and to write editorials about things on which the student body should be informed. All of the eight, with exception of the business manager, must take an examination given by ltlr. Robert E. Brownlee, adviser of the paper, before they may become editors. This examination is mostly about proof-reading, copy-reading, grammar, punctuation, and rewriting. The daily editor receiving the highest score is usually given his choice of the day he wishes to publish his paper. There are also quite at number of staff editors and reporters. HE CUB staff has attempted something new and different this term in publishing a semi-annual in place of the quarterly or annual. The staff was chosen from a group of English VIII students, interested in publication work, who met at the begin- ning of the term. From. this group Elizabeth Schuster was elected editor-in-chief and the following people, associate editors: Jane Rea, seniorg James Koford, literary, Susan Powell, cub tracks, lXIaX Cramer, sportsg Jean Jensen, alumni, Yvonne I-Iostetter, junior highg Mason Whitney, jokes, and lVIary Johnson, art. Bill Blac- Gregor was elected business manager and appointed as his assistant Leola Dixon. In order to keep the work divided among the four English VIII classes, an associate editor was elected from each class. These were lNIargaret Robinson, Betty lXIcLauchla,n, lNIary Brad- bury, and T rinone Rule. Under the guidance of lXIiss Beatrice Burnett, faculty adviser of the magazine, the written material for the various sections was contributed by the English VIII classes and edited by the editors. The material was set up by the printing students under the direction of lNfIr. Fred J. lXIartin. The art work was created by drawing stu- dents of lNrIiss hIabel VVhitmore. JUNIDIQ HIGHLIGHTI PENING the book of school activities we find many inter- esting characters in the Junior High. Our Junior High has a I great many unusual personalities about whom we know very ittle. In looking over this semesterls records we find that George Wood is Junior high commissioner. He holds all the Junior High activities and plans for assemblies with the help of his advisory board. Did you know, for instance, that Nina Glinchikoff of High Nine is a Russian girl who is studying the Russian language outside of school? 'VVe also havethe makings of several "globe trottersl' in our Junior High. Elizabeth Lengbord, high nine, has lived and travelled in India, Japan, and the Islands. ltlargit Holst, low nine, has been to Europe several times and visited in Berlin only last year, and speaks German. The lower classmen do not lack talent. Bar- bara Pfeif fer, high nine, and Kathleen lNIoran, high eight, have both done professional dancing and have displayed their ability in school performances. Betty Tuttle, high eight, and Lola Tette, high nine, also deserve to be mentioned for their excellent ability as dancers. Helen Dickson, high nine, and Cecil Alloo, low seven, represent our Junior High violinistsg while Antonio DeGrassi has shown excep- tional talent as a pianist. Two outstanding leaders in Junior High clubs are Fern Reed,.president of Junior G.A.A., who has carried out a very successful sport season for Junior High girls, and Pay- son VVoolsey, president of the Chemistry Crafts Club, who, although he is only in the seventh grade, organized and led this club a. few weeks after he had entered the school. Other Junior High club leaders are George Prouty, president of the Camera Club, and Betty Conlisk, president of the Junior Girls, Glee. In looking over the athletic records of Junior High boys, ltlr. Hindman thinks that the following have shown exceptional ability during this term: Low Seventh, Fred Stagnera, Bill Heyland, Geo1'ge Drull, Joe Fustado, and Gilbert VVrightg Low Eight, Jim Barcelon, Jim Jenkins, Stanley McGuire, Ledru Frank, Bill VVil- son, High Seventh, Sam Castoris, Francis Dam, Robert lXIcKebben, lllervin Goodall, Richard lNIarsh, Robert lXIcGowang High Eight, Don Young, Don Budge, David Crosse, Lester Adcock, Jim Glad- den, Gordon Apdaile, Jack Jarman, and Edwin Tripp. It will be interesting to see if these Junior High leaders will still be leaders of the school in the future. HE JUNIOR High Advisory Board, the principle factor in the government and affairs of the Junior High, held its meet- ings this semester every lllonday afternoon in room 116 to discuss the affairs of the Junior High. Eleven members including the Junior High Commissioner, George VVood, who also served as chairman, composed the Junior High Advisory Board. Kenneth Bradshaw and Ruth Selling repre' sented the high nine class, Eric llloorhead and Dorothy ltfadison, the low nine class, Ruth Kindt and Lawrence Peterson, the high eight class, Billy Foy and Ardyce lNIunk, the low eight class, and Donald Uren and Virginia Kincaid, the high seventh class. lVIiss lVIae Se- bring and lN'Iiss Diary Cunningham, English teachers, served as ad- visers for the group. ' JUNIDIQ CLUB! y The Junior High has two active clubs, although many Junior High students are members of other clubs to which both senior and junior students are eligible. y The first of these clubs is the iJ unior Girls' Glee. Under the supervision of their president, Betty Conlisk, they gave an operetta for the P.-T.A. this semester. "The Nifty Shopf which was the title of this operetta, mingled comedy with romance in an exclusive shop for gowns. Chorus songs by models and manequins made this an altogether delightful and charming little operetta. The Junior G.A.A. is also a girls, club. Their president, Fern Reed, stated, '4VVe have had good turnouts for all our sports. Paddle tennis, tennis, and crew on Lake ltlerritt were among the most en- joyable sports. In- addition to these sports the members swam at the Y.VV.C.A. every Wednesday." Both clubs are well organized and they have worked hard to keep up their usual good records this term. JIJNIUIQ LIBIQAIQY HE JUNIOR High Library is functioning very satisfactor- ily this term, according to llfiss Squire, who has charge of the library classes. The students are all enthusiastic and enjoy working in the library. It is interesting to know that the first library board inthe new school was organized by the present graduating class in the fall of 1924. This board was composed of Lily Pearl Borell, Mary Brad- bury, Bill Vollmer, George Leutzinger, Alan Nelson, and Helen Kinney. The present board is Edith I-Iopp, Vivian Coffman, Seeley Foote, Baldwin Lamson, Leon Minear, and Ardyce lllurke. Seeley Foote is librarian-in-chief. BLUE IBIIQD THEATIQE The Junior High has its place in drama in University High School. The High Eighth students study the phases of drama, such as pantomtine, dialogue, monologue, and production. Some of our present high seniors now popular on our own stage, such as Billy VVood, Vladimir Aronovici, and Barbara Pomroy, started theatre working in the Junior High dramatics classes. This enabled them to go ahead in the Senior High dramatic work, and to be heroes, villians, or heroines on our own stage. "The Toy Shop" by Percival Wilde was presented by the seventh period dramatic class, named "The Guild of the lliasquef' The characters were: Bobby, Nancy Evans, Betsy, Ruth Stone, the mother, Cathryn Morang and the father, Louis Dehoney. The rooters cheer. The blue and gold is flying, As on the field the athlete guards our llmeg XVe watch with pride our teams uphold our honor, Fighting- uplaying f :1i1"' to win the game. TIQUE SDUDTSMANSHID HERE IS nothing that will so surely make or mar the reputation of a school as the conduct of the student body during interschool contests. VVhether the contest be one of debate, of music, or on the gridiron, the use of good etiquette is as essential as when entertaining guests in your home. The nature of the reception given our students while the guests of other schools will depend la1'gely on the brand of hospitality we extend to visiting teams. Loyolty to our school and respect for the loyalty of others for their schools should go hand in hand. The true sport steps into the other fellowls shoes and views the situation from the opposite angle before he voices an opinion. Iie never whines, whimpers, or growls, and he takes temporary defeat without blaming anyone but himself. He realizes that he is half whipped the minute he begins to feel sorry for himself or to spin an alibi with which to explain away his defects. In the emotional excitement of an intense game or close contest, he con- forms to the rules and regulations. He decides under trying circum- stances between f air and foul methods, and h ransforms his decisions into correct actions. He has not only the knowledge of right and wrong, but he possesses the trained power and habit of acting on such knowledge. This is the very foundation of true character. He who would be a true sportsman would do well to adopt as his creed the following ten commandments: Thou shalt not quit. Thou shalt not alibi. Thou shalt not gloat over winning. Thou shalt not be a poor loser. Thou shalt not take unfair advantage. Thou shalt not ask odds thou art unwilling to give. Thou shalt always be willing to give thine opponent the shade. Thou shalt not under-estimate an opponent, nor over-estimate thyself. s Remember the game is the thing, and that he who thinks other- wise is a mucker and not a true sportsman. Honor the game thou playest, for he who playeth the game straight and hard wins even when he loses. BASKETBALL TEAM HIS season the University Varsity basketball team was un- lucky in most of its games, but winning is only a small part of victory. Coach Allison, handicapped by the lack of veteran material, did not produce a championship team, but he did produce a clean playing, hard fighting bunch of real sports. Other high schoolsrespect University High, mainly through contests with such teams as this, and we should feel justly proud of the fine sportsman- ship displayed by our team. DIQACTICE SEASUN UNIVERSITY vs. coNcoRn1A Opening the 1929 O. A. L. basketball practice season, the Cubs played the Concordia Preachers January 16 on our own court. In the first quarter the Uni rooters led their guests. After a few futile marches up and down the court, Eppstein broke the ice with a free throw. In the final quarter the game was evenly contested, but the Preach- ers, with their lead gained in the beginning of the tilt, held the Cubs to the final 28-18 decision. UNIVERSIT Y VS. FREMONT Probably the most exciting game of the practice season was the Bengal-Cub game, played January 18 on our own floor. The tilt was a nip and tuck affair up to the fourth quarter. VVith the score 17 all, and only two miinutes to go until the end of the game, Townsend sank a long shot from the middle of the court, breaking the tie and win- ning the game for Fremont 22-17. UNIVERSITY VS. ROOSE'VEI..'l' I11 this game, played on January 22, the veteran Roughriders, last yearis U.A.L. champs, were slow in getting started, and the Cubs held them on practically even terms i11 the first period. In the second and third quarters, Keith' Singleton, Roosevelt star, found his eye and rang the hoop for a total of ten points. Dana lNIurdock i was the star player for the Cubs, Singleton for the Teddies. The end saw the Cubs on the short end of a 29-14 score. UNIVERSITY VS. SAN LEANDRO Piracy once more came into vogue when the San Leandro Pirates beat the Cubs on our own court January 25. University took an early lead when Lancione and lllurdoek sank buckets. San Leandro retal- iated withs two field goals and then a foul throw. The lead was main- tained until the final quarter, when the gun went off, leaving the score 11 to 8 in favor of the Pirates. UNIVERSITY VS. RICHMOND University's fighting Cub quintet could not upset the Oilers at Richmond, January 28, during its practice game with the Oily city hoopsters. The initial tip-of f went to Richmond, but close guarding of the Uni bucket forced the "Oily boidsn to take long shots. In the last stanza the Oilers let loose with an attack that netted them 24 points. Laneione raised the Cub,s total to 14 by a foul shot and a field goal. The game ended with the score 24 to 14. UNIVERSITY VS. FREMONT The second game with the Tigers, played February 1 on the Ben- gals' court, looked as if it would be the first win for the Cubs. A spectacular field goal by Blake, who got into the game early in the fourth quarter, followed by VVasson,s bucket and Murdock's fouls, strengthened that belief. But the game ended with Saunders, Fre- mont guard, taking a free throw which he failed to make good, leav- ing Fremont the victors by 19-16 score. UNIVERSITY VS. ROOSEVELT The scoring in the second game with the Teddies was mostly done by field goals, there being very few foul shots called. The game was played on Universityas court February 5. University's men, VVas- son, Lancione, lNIurdock, Hadlen, and VVallstrum, were in the game almost the entire time. Substitutes went into the game the last few minutes of the fourth quarter. At the end of the tilt the Cubs were on the short end of a 34 to 18 count. UNIVERSITY VS. SAN LEANDRO In the second game held February 8, at San Leandro, both the Pirates and the Cubs made a slow start, and as a result there was very little scoring for either team in the first quarter. The Cubs were weak- ened eonsiderably by the loss of Cap-tain lVIurdock, who was forced from the game early in the second period. In the third and fourth quarters the Cubs fought hard, but were unable to overcome the Pi- rates, lead of 241 to 144, the final score. UNIVERSITY VS. RICHMOND In the second game held with the Richmond five February '18, University's quintet showed improvement over the game played with the oily city boys before. The Cubs, however, could not pull through to a win. ltffurdock, Arata, and Hadlen all played a good game, but were out-played by the winners, as the 25-21 score shows. 0.A.L SEASDN UNIVERSITY vs. MCCLYMONDS The closest game of the season was played with the McClymonds Indians in the Oakland Auditorium, February 141. With the score 28-27 in the Cubs' favor, Takesaki sank a foul in the last quarter to tie the score. The Japanese boy then drew another free throw and, amid a dead silence, dropped in one more bucket to win the game 29-28. ' Captain Dana ltfurdock and Preston Hunt both gave the In- dians something to worry about in the game. It was their shots, along with a foul made good by Lan-cione and a bucket by VVasson, that put the Cubs in the front during the fourth quarter. Takesaki, how- ever, proved the undoing of Allison's men with his startling finish. McClymonds had the lead in the first half by 3 points and kept it until the rally made by University. "Tig', Hunt, because of previous illness, was forced to leave the basketball team soon after the Uni-Mack tilt. UNIVERSITY VS. OAKLAND Victory smiled on the Cubs for the first time in the O.A.L. bas- ketball season when the mighty little Acorns went down to defeat at the hands of the Blue and Gold hoopsters February 22. Captain Dana Murdock's super floor work and uncanny shooting helped the team to lead at the end of the first quarter 5-3. At the half the score was 17 to 12, lNIurdock making 10 of the 17 points for the Cubs in the fourth quarter. The Oaks were trying hard to overcome the 7 point lead held by the Cubs. But try as they would, the final tally gave the University 32 and Oakland 23. UNIVERSITY VS. TECHNICAL Displaying the Cub's fighting spirit, the varsity went down to de- feat under the onslaught of their traditional rivals, the Bulldogs, in the Oakland auditorium, February 26. lNIost of Techis scoring was due to deadeye HLefty,' La Franchi, who sank eight baskets for the Broadway lads. 5-The floor work displayed by the Cubs was excep- tionally good, but they didnot seem able to ring the whoop." WVasson, Cub forward, was the high point man for University with four points, lNIurdock, center, trailed him with three points. VVasson and Hadlen played the most consistent game for the Cubs. Tech's victory was another exhibition of powerful scoring and an impenetrable defense which has brought triumph to the Bulldogs time and time again. The final score was 33-12 in favor of the Bull- dogs. CADTAI N On VViednesday, February 27, the University varsity basketball team held a meeting in order to elect an honorary captain for the 1929 season. Dana Blurdock was elected unanimously by the team. Danais election was no surprise, as he demonstrated throughout the season that he was the only logical contender. Dana did not win the honor through his playing oully, but for his fine leadership and sportsman- ship. Dana was captain of every game and kept the spirit of the team high with his "All O.A.L.,' playing. CLYDE'S BUYS T THE beginning of the season, University was to have a 130 pound weight team besides the Varsity. This term how- ever, when the new system of intra'nrural sports came into existence, it automatically cancelled, any weight teams. Con- sequently the fi1'st game was the last game for the 130,s, and the team was discontinued. Following this first game, which the weight team won from VVoodrow VVilson Junior High, the boys organized a team of their own, which they called "The Black and Blue Boysf, Clyde Vaughn was the coach and manager. The first game the boys had was with Concordia Collegeis class B team. They won this game by a score of 21-17. Joe Lan- cione, Moffett, and Vaughn played a good game, although Vaughu's outfit had only two rooters. r Grill's Comrades were the next team to bow to the Black and Blues. The Comrades held their over-confident opponents to a 18-'12 score, and the following week they met in a return game. This contest was a one-sided affair throughout, ending 440-12 in favor of the Black and Blue Boys. The entire team played well, but the good shooting of Coleman and the stellar work of ltloffett aft center brightened the team's hopes considerably. Concordia smarting under the defeat of the first game, placed their second string varsity on the floor in a return match. The Black and Blue's second string held the parsons even in the first quarter. But were replaced by the first five in the second quarter. The out- standing featu1'es of this contest was the careful guarding by Sharp and Bareilles, although Vaughn and J oe Lancione played steady games. The Concordia second team showed great improvement over the class Bts, which speaks well for Vaughn's men. The hardest game of the season was that with Richmond's Bas. A last minute rally, featuring two baskets by Vaughn just before the whistle blew, pulled the game out of the first for the Black and Blues. The game was played as the preliminary to the Richmond-University Varsity game and was a hard fought, fast contest. Baumgarten ltfloffett, and Vaughn were the outstanding figures for the winners. Considerable praise is due Clyde for the su-ccess of his teamis being undefeated throughout the season. Fighting against odds for the most part, the boys who will be the future University Varsity hung up their black and blue suits, looking forward to the day when they shall wear the blue and gold. IEAIEIBALL DIQACTICE SEASUN UNIVERSITY VS. ALAMEIJA OR THE first practice game of the season, played March 1 at Alameda, University Highis baseball nine played the Ala- meda Hornets. The Hornets proved themselves superior to the Cubs throughout the game, winning with a score of 12 to 5. Hart was on the mound for the Cubs at the opening of the game. He allowed one run i11 four innings, while Uni put over three runs. Coach Snyder then tried out other memberS of the pitching staff, and Alameda continually scored. University lost the game because of her poor pitchers. The l'6St of the team worked to per- fection. UNIVERSITY VS. I.,D. E. .S In the second baseball game of the season, played lNIarch 8 with the I. D. E. S., University High was downed by the score of 3 to 1. During the game Coach. Dave Snyder used three pitchers. Kaul pitched first and was relieved by Hart. Hart in turn was relieved by Captain Joe Arata. J oe Jadrich, second baseman, scored the Cubis only run. In all University made a fair showing for her second game of the season. Both infield and outfield showed ability, and it was a tight ball game throughout. UNIVERSITY VS. BERKELEY The Berkeley Yellowjackets proved to be a stumbling block for University, lNIarch 144, and not only did the Cubs lose the game by a score of 17 to 2, but they lost the services of Joe Lancione, outfielder, who broke, his ankle. The game was fairly close up until the fourth inning, when hits began to rain off the bats of the college city men, and the bar- rage continued until the end of the game. J oe Jadrich, star second baseman, scored both of Universityls runs. Coach Dave Snyder used four boxmen in the game: Lee Myers, IIoWard Kaul, Sonny Hart, and Norman Parish. 1 K N 4 UNIVERSITY VS. ARMSTRONG On lNIarch 18, University'S nine met in a tight contest with the A1'mSt1'0Dg team. The final score showed the business school boys leading University by a score of 7 to 5. In this game the Cubs showed a great deal of improvement on the field. In the first inning University made four runs when Hunt hit a home run, Lancione walked, Arata singled, and Hadlen hit a homer, scoring Lancione and Arata ahead of him. This gave the Cubs an early start with a four run lead. Although the Cubs were on the small end of the score, the fans were kept on their toes throughout the whole game by the sen- sational catches made by Lancione in the out field. 0.A.I.. IEAIDN UNIVERSITY vs TECHNICAL NIVERSITY,S Spade Day game, held at Technicalis diam- ond on lNIarch 22, went to the Bulldogs by a 9 to 3 score. lNIyers started in the box for the Cubs, but he was replaced in the sixth inning by Hart, who in turn was relieved by Captain Joe Arata in the seventh. llfyers weakened in the third, and Tech bunched hits to put three Tech men across the plate. They repeated this performance in the fourth and fifth innings. Captain Joe Arata, Lancione, Hadlen, and Coleman made hits for the Cubs. Arata, Lancione, and Hunt, each scored one run for the Cubs. UNIVERSITY vs. SAN LEANDRO In the second O. A. L. game of the season, held at Bushrod on ixlm-C11 28, the Cubs downed the Pirates by a sco1'e of I0 to 8. The team showed some fine work during this game both in the field and at bat. VVillie Haywood, Cub outfielder, was the star batsman of the day, collectingtthree hits out of four timies at the bat. In the first inning Bill Archer hit a home run, giving the Pirates a lead which they held until the second inning. The Cubs stepped out to score three runs. DeNevi walked, Haywood rapped out the long- est hit of the day which went for four bases, and Hadlen walked and then tallied after a hit. v UNIVERSITY vs. FREMONT In its third O.A.L. baseball game of the season held at Fremont, April 9, University was defeated by a score of 4 to 1. Norman Parish, who usually plays left field for the Cubs, pitch- ed the Tigers to a one all tie for six innings of play. University went down to defeat in the last inning. Parish issued two walks and that, coupled with an error and a base hit, drove over three runs for the Tigers, clinching the game for them. UNIVERSITY VS. OAKLAND In the game played at Bay View playground, on Friday April 12, the Oakland Wildcats beat Universityls Cubs by a 16-9 score. The first inning started as though the Cubs were off to a victory. Four runs were amassed by the Cubs on hits by Arata, Jadrich, Lancione, and Coleman. Oakland came to the bat finally, and before they retired made five runs. From then on the Wildcats drew away from the Cubs until they had sixteen runs to their credit. VVeido Lancione was the star of the game getting four hits, two triples, and two homers. SECOND UNIVERSITY VS. TECHNICAL In the second game with Tech, played at Bushrod April 23, the Cubs came through with much better playing. The Cubs held the Bulldogs to a 2-0 score in favor of Tech. Neither team scored in the first two innings, but Tech countered in the third as the result of two walks and two singles. The Cubs got three hits in their half but failed to even the count. In the seventh Silva, Tech,s hurler, homed to sew up his own ball game. Hardt re- placed Silva after Uni loaded the bags, but the game ended with still no score for Uni. Captain J oe Arata pitched a great game, and if his cohorts had furnished the hits, he would have been credited with a win. UNIVERSITY VS. FREMONT p University's Cubs hit their stride on Friday, l5Iay 3, at the ex- pense of the Fremont Tigers. The Cubs made 16-hits and 11 runs to Fremontis 3 hits and one run. H Captain Arata had six strike-outs to his credit, while Anderson wiffed 4, and Fergunchi, 2. The Tigers could not touch the ball, and when they did, the snappy fielding of the Cubs made them lose all hope of victory. The Tige1's scored in the fifth, but the Cubs came right back when Hayward scored on Jadrich's double. Six more runs were an- nexed in the sixth inning. Hunt knocked a triple, Parish scored Hunt, the next three men singled, and VV illie I'Iayward sewed up the game when he knocked ai homer. UNIVERSITY-BERKE LE Y-OAKLAND TRACK In the first track competition of the season, held on the Berkeley field Thursday, llflarch 14, the Cubs managed to slip into a second place. Berkeley took an easy first place with 87 points, University came second with 28 1-2, and Oakland was last with 25 points. The only first places in the events taken by the Cubs were those of Al Sabatte in two of the sprintS. Seconds, thirds, and fourths put the Cubs a few points above Oakland. Berkeley obtained the majority, and in several events completely shut out the other schools. Sabatteas time in his two races was remarkable, making the hundred in 10.2 and the 160 in 15.33. As a whole those fellows that participated for the Cubs did very well. UNIVERSITY-TECHNICAL-PIEDMON'I' meet. In the second meet of the season, held at Piedmont, March 27, University took third place. Because of heavy rain the track was rather slow. Sabatte, Cub sprinter, came through with a first in both heats. I-Iabon, another Cub man, copped the hurdles in the good time of 1811. In the 880 Vollmer managed to get a third place. In the mile Albee, University windbag, also managed to get a third for the Cubs. In the weight events the Cubs fell down, but they did well in the sprints. TRAC K CARNIVAL The track Carnival, held at Piedmont on March 22, gave Univ- ersity a sixth place. Of the eleven schools that were ready when the first race began, Berkeley proved to be superior. The Cub's best showing came in the distance medley when they took second, finishing behind the Wa1'rio1's. lNIcClymonds showed to the best advantage in the distance events. The teams ended the day's activities as follows: Berkeley 35: McClymonds, 31 1-23 Roosevelt 30 1-2, Piedmont, 24g Hayward. 233 University, 15 '1-2g Alameda, 15, San Leandro, 93 Oakland, 4 1-23 Lowell, 33 Technical, 2. UNIVERSITY- SAN LEANDRO- FREMONT In a triangular meet, held at Fremont on April 11, the Cubs man- aged to take first place. San Leandro and Fremont were the two schools opposing University, but the Pirates were soon out of the run- ning. This left Fremont and University to fight it out. The final score was 59 1-2, 544 1-2, and 23. Both the Bengal's and the Cubs were weak in the field events. 2 im5m.VL P if , L , , Y, ,, ,, X Bonnell, Murdock. and Gustafson were the three Cubs to place in the field. University,s relay quartet was disqualified when Sabatte cut over on the track. Bonnel, Habon, and Sabatte divided high point honors, each man taking a pair of f irsts. Albee and Vollmer came through in the distances, the former copping the mile, the latter, the half. University at this time was beginning to show form in the meets. 0.A.l.. TIQACK MEET In the big meet held on Saturday, May 4, at the California oval, several big upsets took place. Roosevelt high took second place over McClymonds by a half point margin, Sabatte dropped both of the sprint races, White failed to cop the pole vault, and there Were many other reverses. The final standing of the teams were: Technical, 2733 Roose- velt, 238g iMcClymonds, 237 1-2, Fremont, 170, Unive1'sity, 159, San Leandro, 1113 Oakland, 61. The relay, which decided second place, was by far the best event of the day. Sabatte started off for the Cubs and handed Earl Clark a nice lead. Clark running the second lap against some of the fleetest in the city practically held his own. Roosevelt gained the lead and finished with a good lead, but Hogan running last man for the Cubs finished a nice second. It was the best showing ever put on by the University relay quartet this year. EIIQLS' SDUIQTS HIS SPRING a new system of girls, sports came into effect. The intra-mural system of major sports is practically the same as that used in boys' sports. All the girls in the Senior High may now participate in whatever sport is running. This has made it more convenient for many girls who otherwise would be unable to attend practices because of lack of time. . In the past the girls played either according to their grade, or were arranged on even teams regardless of class. The minor sports -Qtennis, swimming, archery, hiking, and riding-will not use the intragmural system, but will continue to operate just as they have in the past. The students themselves referee and of ficiate at all games. This is valuable experience for those who want to learn all the 'fins and outsv of the games. At the beginning of a sport season, the Girls, Athletic Association asks for volunteer officials. These girls learn the game thoroughly. Time keepers and score-keepers are also among this group. Since games are played off twice a week, those who of f iciate one day may play the next. The system of awarding points has also been changed, although awards will be made as usual to team members, and perhaps the cus- tomary all-star team will be picked. At the end of the season the usual spreads will be held, and here the teams will be announced and the awards made. This new intra-mural system has been used in some of the other high schools with great success, but this is its first term at University High. It is hoped that the new plan will bring the girls to a better understanding that sports are meant for all of them., If they real- ize this and cooperate, the intra-mural system will continue as a SUCCESS. GIIQLS' TENNIS This semester tennis is one of the main events for girls in ath- letics because of the spring tournaments with other high schools in Oakland. A large number of' players have come out every lllfonday, practicing hard to be able to place in the final tryouts. University is well represented ini this sport. Estelle VVink, a member of the Berkeley Tennis Club, and also a student of the Junior class of this school, was one of the 'Lfollow upw winners in the tourn- ament last year. Having three years' expe1'ience, she is sure to place this semester. Evelyn Ellis, also a member of the Junior class, is a valuable player. Although not as experienced as Estelle, she plays a good game. They ought to bring home a victory for University. AIQCHEIQY Every VVednesday afternoon at the back of the school about fifteen or twenty senior high girls may be seen practicing archery. This is one of the minor sports and is held under the supervision of lllr. Thad Stevens, teacher of shop, and Anna Kip, manager. At the beginning of each season there are many beginners, but by the end of the term these usually have become quite expert. Dur- ing the semester one or two trips are taken to the home of the family of lllr. Stevens near San Jose. There the girls have a regular picnic and several shooting contests. IWIMMI N G If you were to go down to the Y.VV.C.A. some afternoon, you would recognize many students from your Alma lllater. Swimming has always been a favorite with the girls. There are four classes: beginners, low and high' intermediates, and advanced. Each class receives expert instruction from Bliss Portia VVagenet, who has had a great deal of experience. At the present time about eight girls arc working toward their senior life saving emblems. Many have already the junior award. lllarion Holmes, manager, Doris Dray, Harriet Baker, and many others will soon qualify for the Olympic games. IQIDING On each Saturday morning, once every two weeks, a large group of girls from this school, who appreciate the joys of riding, go out tel the Lake Aliso Riding Academy, and mounted on favorites, can- ter out over the trails. -AGC!-XERY This SpO1't has become increasingly popular among high school students within the last few years. We, in this school, have not had it for several terms as a school sport, but its immediate popularity and the response of the girls insure its future. SCADA' ' H HE G. A. A. officers for this term are: Bea Duncan, pres' ident: Grace Jose, vice-president, Doris Dray, secretary ,Doris Gessler, haseballg Ruth Hale, basketball, Ellen Brown, tennis, Anna Kip, archeryg lNIarion Holmes, swimming, Ellen Taylor, hik- ing, and Harriet Baker, riding. Miss lllarion Avery is the club ad- viser. llleetings are held every Thursday afternoon in the little gym- Although these girls have had to cope with many radical changes, both in the school and in the sports, schedule, they have steered the girls' sports through an almost perfect season. WINNEIQS Have a place in your heart for a sportsman, For a man who can lose and then smile. Give a cheer for a team that is losing, Let them know that you think theyire worth while. Feel that victoryis only a detail And may come to a force thatis unfair. Know yourself that the team that is winning 'Is the one that is playing four-square. If the man with the sportsman,s ideals Is the one you consider the best, Then you, too, are a sportsman who's winning, Though your score may be under the rest. In the game of Life scores do not matter. In this contest the f ittest survive- Not the winners who finish by fouling But the ones who lead sportsmanls lives. -BTAURICE FTPPSTEIN -5,4a.I"" 'Y-f""'s.. eff --- X X! Fin-4 ii.: W 41' XXTIICII on the scene those, seeming old and hoary, Dole out some sage advice, we pause to heal' Of how the world has gveeted our alumni. VV'e welcome buck those friends of yesteryear. CAUGHT IN THE ACT 'UST SUPPOSEQ' said the editor, Hthat the scene is any alumni's home, the time is any time when alumni have gotten together, and the purpose is to discuss their neighbors. The characters are any and all of the alumni from Uni High and one Curb reporter of that snooping type. 4'Imagine that the curtain has ascended on a hilarious scene of confusion with everybody talking at once and nobody listening to anyone. In through a window at the back the snoopy Cub reporter enters. He looks around the room in amazement and delight at having found so many alumni gathered at once. He has been seen by no one, and so he pulls out his notebook, looks around for illus- trious persons, spots one, and gets to Work. From this point, since we ourselves vveren't at this marvelous party, let us permit the Cub re- porter to recount his experiences here in his own wordsf' As soon as I got into the room, I spotted ex-Student Body Presi- dent Paul Speegle in one corner conversing with a fair young thing, whose name I could not ascertain. I slipped up behind his chair, on the chance that I might hear something about somebody from Stan- ford. Luck was with me! Of course, I learned that Paul is making quite a name for himself in dramaticsg also he was assistant yell leader last term, "down on the farmf' Then, from a jumble of words, which Paul uttered most wild- ly, I learned that one of our best ath- letes, Bill Doub, after working with a harbor construction gang for six months, had entered Stanford last August. He broke into the college world immediately as captain of the f 1'osh football team, which he took through a very successful season. So far this term he is high point man on the frosh basketball team. Besides all this, Bill is making an "Aw average. Dir. Editor, donit you think that Bill is setting an excellent example for us, who are still at Uni, to follow? I roamed on through the room, but nowhere did I see any person, graduated from our high school, who is now attending Stanford. So Iim afraid you're just out of luck regarding any "grads, who attend college 'idown on the farm? According to news gleaned from many and divers tongues, all going at once, most of our "grads" are going to Cal. Harry Butler, ex-student body president and famous for his good work on any and all of our teams, is going to the Orient with the California baseball team for eight weeks. Harry, it seems, is running true to form. He is majorinig in physical education. "Spike,' Peart, erstwhile winner of the sportsmanship plaque, and also one of our student body presidents, helped the California frosh football team through a winning season in the fall of 1927 and earned his letter. Last fall he was a substitute on the regular team. Over in another corner, by scram- bling behind a chesterfield, I managed to acquire the forthcoming knowledge. Virginia Slaughter and lNIarion Bul- lock are now going to Cal. lNIarion is a full fledged member of the Alpha Chi Omega house, and, being interested in horses, is going out for Crop and Sad- dle. According to her conversation it seemed that her riding outfit was what interested her, CVCI1 mlore than horses. Of course in the same corner I spied 'cJosh,' Holland and Otis llliller. By the Way, wasnit it Otis whom we saw at the senior dance with a certain little maid who is now a high senior? It was! VVell, I thought? so. Anyway, Otis is studying to be a dentist, and he enters dental college next August. Josh was well known for his work on the U-N-I, and he is following it up with work on the Daily Californian. VVandering onward again, l saw several females all excited over a much bandaged person whom I finally decided was Bob Koll. He had been in an automobile, unfortunately, when it bumped into some- thing, but he came out of it fthe accident 11ot the machinej with nothing worse than all the bones of his right hand fractured. I overheard Edward Thomas Planer Junior talking about Bea- trice lNIcCown and Alfred Etcheverry. He waxed very sarcastic about both of them. He wanted to know what in the world was the matter with them. It .seems that "Bean canat even go to Europe without Alfred going also. You see, Mr. Editor, neither of these two were at the party. One of them is just coming back from a six months' tour of Europe, by automobile, and the other is remaining in Palestine for a year or two. Alf redfs tour of Europe is a gradua- tion present. VVhen he returns, Alfred intends to enter Stanford, where he will take a course in "Poli Sci." Beatrice's father has ob- tained a position in Palestine, and "Bea" is staying in Europe for several years. Gee! lNIr. Editor, I wonder if this story will be of any help to our parents in selecting our graduation present. You do? I hope so! Do you remember Alice Queenan, lNIr. Editor? Well, she grad-. uated in J une, 1927, and after she went to Cal. for about a year and a half, she got a leave of absence and now she is going to VVillis Busi- ness College. Whom do you think she dicovered there? Erma VVearne, Connie Baptiste, former Girls' League President, and Esta Fowle. Dot Derrick also goes there. I learned all this from June Raycraft's conversation with Connie. Among all these people we missed one smiling, rouged, and well- powdered face, that of H.Io" Bennewig. "Jo" was just recovering from a severe attack of scarlet fever which she got on last New Year's Eve. She has been taking a P.G. course at "Techf' Oh, by the way, John Fritschi and .I im Belding, both of Decem- ber 1928, are planning to major in "bonehead'7 English at Cal. Ac- cording to their understanding of it, all good students flunk English A because their delicate constitutions can not stand up under such a big strain. lNIary Allerton Fournier, according to g'Kay7' Lewis and Ruth Kelly, is taking a correspondence course in typing and shorthand. It is stated that she misses Uni. She is going to enter Cal. in August. Ruth is working t' or the Daily Cal. and is thankful to hh. Brownlee f or his help while she was working on the U-Nw-I. "KayM is ma or- ing in lNIath. She likes it a great deal, in fact, she waxes enthusiastic concerning it. Fancy that, hIr. Editor. Wliat Amy Body was doing with ii letter from Bliss Lorimer I could not discover. But, anyhow, in the letter Miss Lorimer states that she is wearing two of everything except hats, of which she is wearing three, it is so cold. -By the way, she is staying in China where she is spending her leisure time view- ing their productions of drama. Her descriptions are amusing, to say the least, as she tells about the loud voiced interpreter and the stage settings. I got the above information by craning my neck up over an up- right piano and scanning lNIiss Lorimer's letter with my own eyes over Amyls shoulder. I also learned that Amy was now serving as a newspaper apprentice at the Oakland Tribune, where she is editing country copy. She enjoys it, she says. Ina Hayes, winner of the state Shakespearean contest, Frances Carter, and Hilda Hirsch just can,t leave their alma mater alone. They a1'e back here as P.G.s this term. Funny, isnlt it, how anxious sompe people are to study? Austin lllallet was unable to come to the meeting because he was rehearsing for a production of a play to be given by the Marin Junior College students, in which he has a lead. y s J ack and VValter Vance were sup- plying the music for the alumni affair. Both of them are attending California and are well known for their musical talent. VValt is taking up an electrical engineering course, and J ack is maj or- ing in Lette1's and Science. Billy Layne was also in the orches- tra. He is attending the California Art .E Institute in San Francico. Before he started work there, he worked for six months with the VVear-Ever Alumi- num Company. Russel Gleason wasn't at this meeting, but everybody was talk- ing about him and, st1'ange as it may seem, the conversation was all complimentary. Russel is working in the "Talkies', now. Isn't that thrilling? But then we always knew he had a career ahead of him He was always so brilliant while at Uni that we will be proud to say we went to the same school as he did, and all that. XVhen you think of scholastic honors, lllr. Editor, please con- sider Uni high at the head of your list. Have you heard about those fifty dollar scholarships? VVell, Elibazeth Bolt told Eleanor VVright that Dave Lyon, Raul lllagana, and Virginia Bland were among the lucky ones this semester. Eleanor was on crutches-the result of an infected foot contracted while here. She has been working over in the city but plans to enter Cal. this fall. Gee, lllr. Editor, I missed Richard Gettell's lordly way of add- ing atmosphere to the multitude. He is in New England acquiring an education. Seated over in another corner was Bob Elliot, another of our ex-student body presidents. Instead of enjoying our party, he was poring over a book. I approached him carefully, and being sure to keep behind a tall vase of flowers, I questioned him, and this is what he told me. 4417111 a lowly frosh at present with less Uegow than a microbe and hardly any brains, Iilll afraid, judging from what the Profs. up at Cal. grade some of my work. Oh! It's a great lifef' And then, lNIr. Editor, the most exciting thing of all happened! Just as I dived under the chesterfield, Bob Elliot dropped a letter twhich I had overheard him telling a boy earlier in the evening had been sent to him to give to youj and so I picked it up and here it-is. VVhy lXfIr. Editor--Read it quickly. It's from IX'Ir. Boren. Miss Jean Jensen, Alumni Editor, f'Cub Tracks" University High School, Oakland, California. Dear Jean: I have written many messages for the f'Cubl' and "Cub Tracks", always as principal, This time the experience is unique, for I am writing as an alumnus. Since leaving Oakland my life has been a busy one and not wholly free from trials and tribulations, but I have enjoyed it because it has presented a new challenge to nie. I have had the problem of organizing the finances of the San Mateo Union High School and Junior College Districts. Now I ani facing problems of educational reorganization and development. I like it and I am going to like it more and more as the years go by, but I miss the close, personal, friendly relationships that I had with students and teachers at University High. My life there was rich in friendships, and my big hope now is that faculty and students have for me the same affectionate memory that I have for them. Sincerely, FRANK H. BORFN, june, 'ZS lNIr. Editor, just think! That Hubert Caldwell person was at the meeting. You know he graduated a long time ago, but still he has become very well known since then, .. so it is worth while mentioning him. He went to the Olympic Games as hon orary captain of the California Crew which was the world's champion crew. I wonder what it feels like to be fam- ous, lWr. Editor? Then Fred Reyland was there PIe. was that tall blonde fellow with the peach blossom skin. He, too, has made good. I-Ie is sophomore manager of the California basketball team. From the conversation of' J ack Steinbach, delivered between mouthfuls of cake, I learned that Frank .Iuchter is filling radiators with water on the corner of Grove and University Streets. VVhen not occupied in this business, he takes courses in mechanical engineering at Cal. I also learned that Jack is Working for Blythe. VVitter Bond IIOuse, while going to night school in San Francisco. In a far corner of the room, behind some drapes, I discovered "Babe" Schrader. I let him into the secret because, since he Was talk- ing to no one, he had time for me. He is attending the College of the Pacific, Where he is majoring in physical education. John Gibson was another one we missed at this gathering. John is getting along fine as a featured player in the utalkiesf' However, he sent his kind regards to all our alumni. IVilma Bradbury was another of those people to whom "out of sight, out of niindli does not apply. It seems she is making a name for herself and developing to even a greater degree her well known talents. J eff' Beaver was there. Heis been to Hawaii, lNIr. Editor! Im- agine that! You see after he graduated he contracted a desire to find out just how a grass skirt should rustle and shipped aboard the lNIalalo as mess boy. As he traveled most of the ocean voyage by grail", one trip was enough. Jeff is back on terra firma. lNIr. Beaver, so he says, will work about the lflast Bay Cnot too near the bay, he would qualifyl at some good land job until next fall, when he plans to go to Chicago to live with his sister and attend the Y.lNI.C.A. University tl'lC1'C. Wlhile gaining the above information, I had been ensconed on a throne behind the drums, but at this point the orchestra decided to move, and unfortunatley I was discovered. Everybody jumped for me at once and, sticking my notes in my shoes, I dived through a sea of legs, slid under a chesterfield, and ran through an outside door to safety. There Wasn't much left of me, but the notes were safe, and so here they are. But please, lNIr. Editor, Iid rather not try to get any more alumni material. I can't understand why our alumni should be terrified at the thought of a poor little under-grad attendingione of their meetings, just for news. Can you?
