A. L. MOORE President Clerk H. F. ORR E. S. DUVAL MRS. FRED MERCER BOARD OF TRUSTEES The students of the Ventura High School owe an inexpressible deb1 of gratitude to the trustees. The Board lias worked untiringly in an effort to create for the students a school in which they will have every educational advantage. The trustees have secured a beautiful and well equipped building, and have never been known to refuse any re- luest which has been necessary for the students ' advancement. FACULTY ' I ' n make friends with one ' s pupils while teaching them their lessons is a marked accomplishment, and we students of Ventura High School feel that our teachers have ably succeeded in doing this. Not inly do we respect them as efficient instructors, hut we feel that they ere sympathetic and helpful as advisors in our school affairs. Perhaps we have tried them at times, perhaps we have been lazy, impudent, and tnc nsiderate; but underneath it all we realize the greal debt of gratitude we owe to the faculty and wish to thank them for their cooperation during the year 1927-28. voc a«t-»- 19 2 8 =i J»ie Eight vssr- ( ! i 0K » LA REVISTA « ma r Mr.H. 0.

In the fall of 1926 we returned to the familiar halls of old Ven- tura High with the realization that we were now among the envied upper classmen. Annum ' the class of ' 28 were those who contributed greatly to the athletic achievements of one Alma Mater. Nor were we lacking in music and art. The musically inclined among us took a leading place in both the Glee Clubs and the Irchestra. lur dramatists were quite worthy of note and were successful in furthering the .ii niui class spirit. With lb. ward Mahoney as oui president we com- pleted man notable enterprises, among which the annual . Junior Re- ccptii n was most woi thy of mention. In August of 1927 we returned to school with all the pomp and pricle bi fitting a Senior Class. Early we chose Dorothy Serene as our leader and we plunged into our duties with renewed vim. Our number had decreased to sixty-eighl but i ur spirit and knowledge bad in- creased a thousand fold. As Seniors we contributed our services in supporting ur Girls ' and Hoys ' Leag ues and lending a helping hand wherevei need aicse. Our Student Body activities were quite worthy of note and our athletes, and artists of more sedate temperament, had ;.( rtrayed the spirit and wisdom of our class. We are now nearing the close of our fourth and most successful rear at V. I ' . II. S. Ii is with regrel that we leave our school, bu1 we are able to look I ack on four short years we ' ll spent. We feel thai we hav done our bit in support nf our school and class, and it is with a ■ ' eling of accomplishment thai we leave here to carry on what we have -o successfully begun. ififeM- 19 2 8 --- ei -Eda (i.

James Gabbert, who has become a famous archaeologist, is in Egypt when lie decides to combine work with pleasure and ex- plore the islands which were so familiar to him in the days of his youth. While on the boat Jimmy meets Fritz Zapf and Roy Fossati, two confirmed old bachelors who are returning from a visit to the old world. While in Europe they have won a fortune at Alonte Carlo and are now prevailed upon to give financial aid to the expedition to the islands. On reaching Ventura, Jimmy immediately sets out for the islands. A small boat, captained by Frank ( assidy, and his crew of helpers, Farris McDermott and Hubert Orr, is chartered by the ex- plorers. After prowling around lor a few hours Jimmy notices a pecul- iar formation ol rocks. Calling the men, he immediately begins rolimg the boulders away. At last their search is rewarded. A huge chest is found upon which the following words are inscribed. " To be opened by one who graduated from Ventura Union High School in the class of ' 28. . | Opening the chest is but a matter of seconds; then Fritz care- fully lifts a curious glass of mammoth size while Frank Casisdy reads aloud the directions found in the chest. " The graduate of V " . U. H. S. who finds this chest will hereby gain the power to see their fellow classmates, wherever they may he. by placing this glass at a spot exactly opposite this place. He must. then return to the chest ami sit lacing the glass. " Following directions implicitly, it is but a matter of seconds before the men are seated around the chest. The woods grow dark im- mediately, — the only light shining fully upon the glass. Passing in stately procession before the interested spectators comes the class of ' 28.

Impeding circumstances placed before the first mid-year das- in the history of V. V. H. S. and not lack of class spirit lias been the sole cause for the gradual shrinkage in the personnel of the class of ' 28 1 -:- rjndaunted by lack of numbers, the Senior Babes have taken foremost places in the activities of our Alma Mater. One of our members, .Mary Anorga, has established the record of being president of four organisations in one year — Spanish club, Gr. A. A., Yell club and tin Senior P class. Seldom is there a committee in any club with- out at least one of our members being appointed. The treasurer of the diils ' League, Dorothy Langford, the secretary of the Spanish club, Rose Schwab, and the assistant editor of " La Revista, " Wanda Hay- den, are all Senior B ' s. Nor are our activities solely devoted to social and journalistic life. Wanda Hayden lias for two years been on the debating team and has in the same two years won the local oratorical contest. Athletics have also been conquered by our members. There were four Senior B ' s on the winning inter-class hockey team, while basketball and baseball are sure to see Senior B ' s among the members of the winning teams. The Senior B class is but further proof that ability of the few always overbalances the clamoring of the many. lityaH— 19 2 8 i9h- IS J Thirty-five i 3r iSRumw I, |{K IS ' l ' A wai«j SI «S?s JUNIOR A One sunny day in August, 1925, a bunch of Freshies made their trembling entrance to Y. IT. H. S. Time went by and they blossomed into happy-go-lucky Sophs, and now another year has rolled around and now they are honest-to-goodness, serious, dignified Juniors. The powers of the Junior class in practical education arc known by all. Their names stand oul prominently in the honor roll. They have won laurels in short story and essay writing. The Juniors are very prominent in dramatics. They are working hard mi the Junior play now and it promises to be the successful play of the year. In June the Juniors will have a chance to show their ability as hosts and hostesses and we promise the Seniors a peppy reception. Last, but not least by far, comes athletics. The Junior girls have taken the championship in both inter-class hockey and soccer this year. Junior boys are to be found on all school athletic teams. Then are a goodly number of Junior hoys on the class H basketball team that played for the Si nthern California semi-finals. But in w our happy Junior year is almost over and w will soon he mighty Seniors with an annual of our own, so we will stop and wait till we are Seniors to presold the rest of our many merits.

Everyone was looking for- ward to the coming event of that evening, the Junior Prom. Some students were reluctant! that they would soon be leaving their beloved school, never again to have the pleasure of returning as a member of the student body, and others were wishing that they were upper classmen and could be the honored guests on this night of nights. A group of young fellows stood on the steps of the Sigma Chi Frat house, discussing the n uch talked of event. Suddenly one of the croup dashed off to meet an approaching taxi which stopped before the college library. " Suppose that is Tom ' s guest for tonight, " said John Faneher. " I presume so, " answered another of 1 he group as Tom welcomed the girl who stepped from the taxi. Young Faneher took up the conversation. " Say. fellows, I wonder who Bob Hallow-ay is taking tonight . ' " Hob Ilalloway. senior class president and captain of the varsity football squad, was considered about the best looking man in college. It is not often that good looks and intelligence go together, but here certainly was an excep- tion to the rule. Of course such an unusual combination made Bob quite a favorite with the girls; however the much admired Bob seldom paid any atten- tion whatsoever to the fair eo-eds of Colton. " Haven ' t heard. " replied one of Faneher ' s companions, " but 1 don ' t imagine it ' s a Colton girl. Some one from his home town, no doubt. " " Well, 1 am not sure that he ' ll take anyone, " remarked Faneher. " Bob never pays any attention to the girls. Funny isn ' t it . ' Why there ' s not a girl at Colton who wouldn ' t be thrilled to receive an invitation from that fellow. " As they continued to talk a large limousine drew up to the steps. A colored chauffeur got out from tile driver ' s seat, opened the door of the ton- neau and aided a very attractive, fashionably dressed young lady to alight. " Queen Marie. ' " whispered Faneher to his companion. " Couldn ' t say, " was the reply. " The hist time I went to Roumania Queen Marie was wintering in Switzerland.

" said Pancher under his breath. " Who in the world is she . ' " By tliis time the girl had reached the steps and was greeting the boys with a friendly smile, which they found very delightful indeed. " How do you do, " she began. " Is this the Sigma ' hi Fraternity house ' " " Yes. " said Pancher. " If you are looking for some one, perhaps I can — " " Oh, thank you so much, " and again she smiled her lovely smile. " You see, I was supposed to meet Bob Ilalloway here at 4 :. ' !(). but I ' m afraid I ' m a bit early. Do you know where I could find Bob? You are acquainted with him of course . ' " " Well [should say we are. Everyone knows good old Bob. I imagine he is over at the gym. I ' ll run over and see if T can find him. " and off went Pancher toward the gym, leaving the girl with his two companions who pro- ceeded t« " look her over. " Her slim figure, dark- brown hair, blue eyes and fail ' skin met with their entire approval. The chic blue hat and the fur eoat had been chosen very carefully and the result was a very charming one. " What a lovely campus your school lias! " she exclaimed, gazing at the landscape before her. " I suppose yon boys are exceptionally proud of Colton. " " We certainly are, " said one of the fellows. " Well, well. look what ' s advancing from the gym. " The visitor turned to see friend Bob leap over a small hedge and with Pancher (dose behind he was soon at the fraternity house. " Peggy! " " Bob! " Ilalloway glanced nervously at the boys as he took Penny ' s hand, and seeing a broad grin on Paneher ' s face, he cleared his throat and said. " Pel- lows, allow me to present — er — Miss Peggy Davison, of San Francisco. " Then Bob and Peggy departed for a walk about the campus, Bob stopping to tell Miss Davison ' s chauffeur to deposit his mistress ' bags on the steps of the girls ' dormitory. Some time later in tin ' afternoon, John Pancher met Bob eoming from Mrs. Antherton ' s. dean of women at Colton. apartment where Peggy had been invited to stay until time for the prom to begin. Immediately John began to question Bob about his giv] and lie wanted to know just where Ilalloway hail found her. However much to Paneher ' s surprise. Bob merely smiled and went on toward his destination. " Hm-m. " mused John. " Must In- afraid I ' ll steal her, and I admit I " d like to. but I can ' t understand Bob ' s attitude. Here I ' ve been going to school with him for four years and this is the first time I ' ve ever seen him excited over taking a girl to a party. .Maybe he is not the " Bashful Bob " he has been pre- tending to be.

While Ralph was dressing, John walked over to the chest of drawers that belonged to Boh and picked up ;i small leather bound volume which he saw lying on the chest. Turning to the fly-leaf he saw written, " With love and besl wishes from Aunt Peg. " Hear ing a chuckle, ralph turned to Fancher. ' ' What have you found John . ' " John held up the book. " Say, Ralph, do you know Bob ' s Aunt Peg? " he queried. " Well, mi, I don ' t know her personally. She is very wealthy though, in fact she is putting Boh through Colton, I believe. Why do you ask. ' " " Ralph, Bob thinks he has tricked us into believing that Peggy Davison is his girl; but I ' ll bet anything that Miss Peggy is the daughter of Aunt Peg and none other than our bashful Bob ' s own cousin. " " By George, " exclaimed Ralph, " I ' ll bet so too! If that isn ' t just like Halloway. lie knew he ought to take a girl hut was too bashful to ask anyone hut his own cousin.

" Say Ralph, we ' ll just let him think so until most of the evening has passe,]. Then we ' ll turn the tables.

Her evening f rock was of fla • e color and silver and had caused much comment. She and Halloway made a very charming couple as he pre- sented her to his surprised Colton friends. Ralph and Pancher were ex ' d- ingly joyous, and even Bob remarked about their high spirits, which en- couraged t hem all the more. About the end ol ' the seventh dance Fancher saw Boh and Peggy step out on the veranda. Immediately he called Ralph, and the two hoys proceeded to follow the couple. They stood behind a potted palm listening to the conver- sation between Bob and the girl. " (ice. you ' re swell. " began Bob, " Honest you are. " " Oh really, Bob are you satisfied? I admit I ' ve had the best time tonight I ' ve had in ages " Satisfied! Aunt Peg, no one could have played the part better. And if you had a good time you certainly deserve it after all you ' ve done for me.

Lisetta ' s father committed the supreme extravagance of lighting two candles instead of one at suppertime, but this noble illumination did not keep the creeping shadows from the corners, nor the wind from hissing- and pound- ing around the little hut, and whistling and swishing in the big chestnut tree outside It did nut keep the rain and hail from beating down on the roof with that relentless, nerve-racking patter that sounded like the echo of a thousand drums. Tt did not keep that black bank of mysterious clouds from darkening the angry heavens. " On a night like this, " remarked Lisetta ' s mother, looking fearfully about, " the witches fly away on their broomsticks to the big forests and from there go to the great gathering of witches which takes place in the moon. Isn ' t that so. Anselmo . ' " Scarcely had she uttered the last word when Lisetta cried out. " Oh, look! the Old Mother of Hi e Sea is peeping in at the window. " The peasant, her father, and his wife turned to look. Perhaps what the child had seen had been a branch of the old chestnut tree, perhaps the rain- drops falling, falling, — perhaps a flash of lightning; at any rate an utter blackness encountered their eyes, a cold, silent blackness which stared them down and made them shudder involuntarily. " You are crazy, Lisetta. " said her mother. " There is no one out there. " Lisetta knew that she had not really seen the face, that some fancy had made her say the words, involuntarily,— as if a voice that was not her own had spoken the words— hut stubbornly she opened her mouth to insist when her father repeated with a finality made so terrible by his own fear that the child was silenced : " You are crazy! " The following morning it was discovered that the storm had done great damage, that many trees had fallen, that the crops were ruined and many of the houses were seriously injured by the fury of the tempest. " It is the witches: " murmured the subdued villagers. But Lisetta, burning with longing to bring herself into public notice, in- sisted that the face she had seen at the window the previous night was, so to speak, the power behind the throne, the hidden force which had brought about all this disaster. Old in their superstition, the children of the village bestowed all their admiration upon Lisetta when she told them of her adventure on the night of tlie storm, and what she believed it meant. " Old Mother of the Sea broughl on the tempest, " the child claimed " She lias an Evil Eye! " The others listened wide-eyed and retold the story over the supper tables. " Old Mother of the Sea broughl on the tempest! She has the Evil Eye! " Their fear settled on the villagers like a cloud. old Mother of the Sea lived alone in the smallest and poorest of the vil- lage huts. She was almost eighty years old, and the signs of the great beauty she had once possessed were faded and gone long ago. She had kept only her a 5t H34-1— 19 2 8 ■■■•«-£% » — Kg gj Fifty-two K3Kjm LA |{K is T A ■«o rae - _j -issm greal black eyes and her slender figure, bu1 the for r had losl their brilliant lustre, and the latter was stooped and benl with the heavy burden of the years. She lived mostly m wild roots and mils and black bread. Prom the roots she made soups which barely kepi her alive, — kepi her alive when she had nothing to live for. Her children ami her husband were all dead, she could not lmasi even of a distanl cousin. She was past caring whether she lived or died. And they said now thai she had an Evil Eye.

Thai she comn uned with the spirits, that she was a witch and Hew away mi a broomstick to a rendezvous in the moon. Ah. her ghosts were nol these grotesque creatures in which the villagers believed. Her ghosts were the memories of happy times, of two laughing chil- dren, of a handsome fisherman husband, of a little island where they hail lived in their utter happiness until one day. when her husband and children hail gone out in the boat they did not return. The sea had taken them away, and with them had taken away her soul! But they said she had an Evil Eye! What did they know of tragedy, they who, having lost their n iserable crops soughl revenge on the innocent! They called her the .Mother of the Sea. Not even the sea. all she had left now to i ' other, could protect her,- the sea that she hated, but wh ise voice called her, -called her Instead of the Loveliness which before had tilled her life she had one com- panion now.— -Fear ! She feared herself, feared the Evil Eye,— feared the looks on the faces of the villagers. Fear sat beside her. leering, laughing, with the face of death, as mysterious, as relentless, — a shadowy figure wrapped in hatred; — a cowled, bent figure, ageless, unchanging, — with an Evil Eye—. So far the villagers had left ( bl Mother of the Sea completely alone, for she had come from an island over the waves and was not one of them. They did not offer their friendship, but neither wen 1 they her enemies. She was alone and mysterious and much older than they. Perhaps she was a witch. They did not know, but kept away from her for safety ' s sake. Their utter superstition and ignorance made them heartless. " Old .Mother of the Sea has the Evil Eye! " She who had come from the sea and would some day return to it heard the wcrds shrilled after her by a child who scarcely knew the meaning of them, but who was prompted by the thousand-year-old ignorance which was her in- heritance. And Fear, ever beside the old woman, laughed with a horrible, toothless grin, and held her heart in its icy fingers. The child was Lisetta, of the big brown eyes and chestnut curls. (Mil Mother of the Sea approached her trembling and. stretching forth her little wrinkled yellow hand grasped Lisetta ' s arm. " " Lisa — Lisetta — why do you say that. ' What have I done to you. ' Lisa Lisetta — tell me. " " You brought on the storm. " said Lisetta with keen pleasure. " You brought it on with your Evil Eye. Don ' t touch me! " " Lisa Lisetta — once 1 was a little girl like you. When you are old like me you will want peace too — " Lisetta ' s father rushed out of the village store and tore the child from the old woman. Anselmo believed firmly that old Mother of the Sea was a witch and feared her accordingly. ••(in! " he roared. " You have done enough harm already!

" They all looked up at the lamp, hanging beautiful and shining over the door Old Mother of the Sea also looked with her frightened old eyes, and at that moment, with a deafening crash the lamp fell and broke in a thousand crystal pieces. Astounded, they looked at each other, then the old woman tottered off as last as she could, with the curses of the grocer and Ansel echoing after her. And Pear clattered on beside her. " Old Mother of the Sea has an Evil Eye! " The hateful words were heard everywhere. The winds whispered them, the birds sane- them and the sea the beautiful sea over which the old Mother had come— roared them incessantly. Lisetta, full of importance and curiosity, f elt, for the ' old woman an in- explicable fascination. She feared her terribly, yet could not keep far from her. And Old Mother of the Sea. nearly insane in her loneliness grew to love the pretty child as she watched her at play. " Lisa — Lisetta! " She was fond of saying the name over and over again. She pretended that Lisetta was her own. — she dreamed of happy hours when they two were alone together, -lust to watch her brought the old Mother the most, intense pleasure. Then one night, when all the village was asleep. Lisetta ' s little home caught afire It was a silent, blistering night, In the excitement the frightened child ran off, crying, shrieking, her little hare feet bruised and torn, her pretty face scratched by the bushes, ran off into the forest straight to the hut of lid Mother of the Sea. What joy for the Old Woman that night! In the greater fear of the tire Lisetta lost her nameless fear tor the woman with the Evil Eye. So the Old Mother put her into her own bed, and cuddled her and kissed her and wept over her, and found that all her dreams were fulfilled when she held the warm little body of the sleeping child close in a sort of silent ecstacy. Lilt when Lisetta awoke in the morning she had almost forgotten the tire, hut her tear of Old Mother of the Sea returned. She rushed from the old woman ' s hungry arms and out into the forest where she met her father at the head of a party of searchers. " (lid Mother of the Sea got me last night! " lied the sobbing child. " She drew me to he]- hut with her Evil Eye and threw a spell over me! Oh; I ' m afraid ! I ' m atraid ! " Maddened wit h fear for his child, with the night ' s incessant worry, with his hatred of the woman with her Evil Eye (for he attributed all his misfor- tunes to her) Anselmo, tearing a heavy rod from the ground, rushed on toward the hut with Lisetta in his arms. Tile old mother was bending over her pot unseeingly, tears falling quietly over her wrinkled, yellowed cheeks. There was a wondering, questioning look on her face as if she had seen a vision so beautilul that it was not to be be- lieved. It was thus that the peasant and his followers found her. " Hag! " shrieked Anselmo, " I curse the sea that brought you here. You have bewitched my child and burned my home and now 1 am going to kill you! Witch! Witch! " ' Old Mother of the Sea smiled confidently.

THE VALUE of COMPETITION I realize there has been much criticism of my participation in the affairs of last sum er. 1 believe, however, that my actions were completely justified. I have always maintained that the end justified the means. If the end isn ' t just wdiat one expects, can one help it . ' The five thousand inhabitants of Rosebourn have a peculiar way of ac- cepting as facts things which have not yet happened, such as the new rail- road, the discovery of oil on Kip Parson ' s land. Grandma Robinson ' s being dead before spring and the Gibson-Moreland wedding. Folks resent having the preestablished facts disrupted. Knowing this. I decided to bring things to a point so that some of these happenings might be realized. Kathryn Springson ami Margarel Williams had been friends all their lives, and it seemed perfectly natural for them to marry the young lawyers who ha.l just opened their law offices in the new hank building. I can re em- ber that wedding yet. It was a double one and the largest that folks around here had seen up to a year ago. Well, to go on. John Gibson and Frank .More- land boughl houses in the same block, and instead of progressing as these fiction heroes one reads of. both men were moderately successful. Thus it was that it became an accepted fact that .loan Gibson should marry Keith More- land. Why. Rosebourn folks had them married before they were out of the cradle! 1 ,h n ' t believe the young folks thought much about it. At any rate, .loan began talking about a musical career, and Keith was making plans for an ex- pedition to China. He was twenty-two and believed himself a Full-fledged •jeoloeist. having graduated from college that spring. Some of us thought it was time for them to talk something besides music and China. I thoughl about it considerably that spring and decided something should be done. I did it. The plan came to my mind when 1 heard so e Mr. Jacobson lecturing on " The Value of Competition.

I had visited her mother at Christmas time . She served the purpose, all right. She was such a little thing, but she must have had this ' " it ' you hear so much about. At auy rate, she wasn ' t at my house two weeks before the place was overrun with young t ' oiks. Just as i expected, Keith was one of the most persistent. 1 watched Joan closely. It wasn ' t Jong before 1 began to notice her being a little lot nicer to young Moreland. They had long taiks together and 1 saw to it they weren ' t disturbed. Soon Jean joined them. 1 wondered at that. It didn ' t seem to lit in somehow. As 1 look back 1 realize how blind I was. When 1 think how I answered Airs. .Moreland at the picnic that day 1 feel positively squelched. Jean, Joan, Keith and one of the boys we didn ' t see much of, — some say a few of his poems were published, — went about a half a mile for some water. They said the water from iJie spring at camp tasted tunny. At the time, 1 thought it strange that it should take tiiem alt morning to find that out. When Mrs. .Moreland saw them going she said, " I ' m afraid Keith and Jean are — wefi, yes, 1 know she s a dear, sweet girl, but Margaret and 1 have afways pfanned that Joan and Keith — " " Never you mind, ' ' f interrupted sagely, " a little competition won ' t do Joan any harm. She never had a reason to please Keith until now, but you wait. " ' " Belinda Gurton, I believe you had this planned before you invited Jean to visit you! " Margaret exclaimed. 1 could kick myself when 1 remember how modestly I admitted that " i always liked to make folks happy. " i remember now how disturbed the four of them looked when they came back from that walk. 1 supposed at the time it was because somebody asked them where the bucket was. 1 also remember how impatient 1 was with Joan. Wasn ' t the girl clever enough to get Keith alone Surely one of our own Kosebourn girls was not to be beaten by an outsider. Things went on in this way for a week or two. Jean was having such a good time that 1 just had to invite her to stay for the rest of the month, es- pecially as the Morelamls were having a farewell dinner for Keith, who was leaving on that China trip in a tew weeks. The day of the dinner, Jean seemed almost too excited. I had been prepared to be sympathetic or cheerful, whichever seemed to be needed most. It wasn ' t long before 1 decided 1 should try to calm her somewhat. 1 managed to get her to sit quietly for a lew minutes while 1 told her some interesting peculiarities of our neighbors. She wasn ' t the attentive listener 1 enjoy talking to ; her mind seemed to be somewhere else. However, she sat still, and 1 thought she needed the rest. 1 bad almost finished telling her about how Jud Hopkins was elected mayor because folks didn ' t expect him to last the week, and they wanted him to die happy and how he got well after all, when she sat up straight and the way si,,, talked, a person would ' ve thought a little miscalculating like that was a crime. " That ' s just it, " she said, " the people in this town are always taking tilings from granted. Here they have wedding presents ready for Joan and Keith, and they ' re not going to be married at all! " She gave a little gasp and jumped to her feet. The next thing I heard was the door of her room bang. Not get married! What could the child mean? Surely the party that evening could only mean an announcement of the engagement. Jean must feel it more deeply than 1 imagined!

I couldn ' 1 help watching her face The Hush covering her olive complexion was good t sec. and her ryes sparkled like diamonds. She looked expeel antly happy as only nineteen can be happy, .she didn ' t mention the incident of the afternoon, but 1 could see she was sorry for her actions by the countless attentions she showered on me; — fixing my hair, straightening my collar, and helping me on with my wraps. She had such a nice way id ' helping me with- out making me feel old. A woman my age shouldn ' t 1 ' eel old — why, I ' m in the prime of life. 1 was anxious to see Joan. She would have to go some to outshine .Jean tonight. When 1 did see her, I was surprised to see the same look on her face as was on .lean ' s. Both girls seemed to be treading on clouds. Joan ' s blonde beauty was enhanced by a blue dress which gave her a positively fragile look. How anyone could think of taking that child over among those barbarous Chinamen to have her pretty head cut off was beyond me. While we were waiting lor the rest of the guests 1 received several surprises. When the young chap who writes poems came up and treated me as if 1 were a long lost friend 1 was surprised enough. Why the boy had hardly noticed me before! However, 1 have heard of the eccentricity of artists and when he said, " Miss Gurton, you will be repaid for the sympathy and help you have given us, " 1 was sure it was his temperament coming out. When had 1 ever shown him any sympathy or helped him. ' " He must have me mixed with someone else, " 1 thought. 1 was still pondering over this when Keith came up and gave my hand a squeeze, lie whispered, " You ' ve been a wonder and we won ' t, forget it. " 1 was sure there was somthing wrong with the young people. 1 didn ' t have long to think about it though. Dinner was announced, and 1 had my hands full trying to watch both the girls and Keith while 1 paid enough attention to krotesNor Wilkes to answer him with a. pretense of intelligence. I didn ' t know why, but 1 fancied the older people treated me rather coody, and 1 noticed Mrs. Moreland looking sadly at Keith and Joan. Why mothers plan a marriage for years, then look so forlorn when the thing really happens is one of the most baffling mysteries in the world. It was while we were eating our dessert that the big surprise came. Each of us received a little Letter announcing the engagement of Miss Jean Winston to Mr. Keith Moreland! 1 was speechless with surprise, and the first thing 1 remember was Jean whispering in my ear, " You old humbug, don ' t bother pre- tending. We know how much you helped us. " 1 helped Jean and Keith. ' 1 realize now 1 should have declared myself right then, but 1 was stupitied. Anyway 1 didn ' t have a chance. Just then this young artist fellow and Joan began to act strange. Soon 1 realized they were telling lis m a rather poor way that they were to be married the follow- ing spring. When they had finished, Joan came over and put her arms around me. " We never could have done it if it hadn ' t been for Aunt Belinda, " she said. Soon the four of them were telling me how much they appreciated what I had done for them. 1 don ' t think Joan ' s mother really ever forgave me until we got a letter from Jean telling about the exciting time they were having convincing some Chinamen they weren ' t plotting to gain control of the government.

BLANCHE NANCARROW. THE HUMAN TOUCH Tis the human touch in this world thai counts, The touch of your hand and mine Thai lends more strength to the weary hearl Than shelter, and food, and wine.

FREE. i ( ' over design, Youl h ' s !omp. ) The love and sympathy of a true friend is the most precious possession in all the world. Xo human being is ever so happy, and no one is ever so miser- able, that he can fail to realize thai the heart of a friend is the greatesl need in both happiness and sorrow-. A great writer once said. " We come into this life alone, we go out of it alone, but it is in possible for us to live our lives alone. " Regardless of what time may bring us. (lie human touch is one thing we all need on our journey through life. When we are happy, friends increase our happiness. When sorrow burdens our hearts with more than we can bear, these same dear friends help to share that burden. It has been said that " Sorrow brings out friends like night brings out the stars. " and it has been proved thai sorrow or misfortune is the greatest test id ' the faithfullness of a friend. Sometimes we do not appreciate our friends in the measure they deserve. Often we are inclined to value money, property, or other things of little value that are important only for the things they will buy. When we allow our- selves to do this, we give little thought to our most priceless possessions, our friends. A i r man may lie really rich if he has friends, but a wealthy man who is friendless is never actually rich. This is because riches are measured in our daily associations, nol in dollars and cents. 1 have seen rich people who had a dull time. 1 have also seen poor people, poo]- in dollars and cents, who Were enjoying life to the utmost. A happy home life, pleasant duties, friends and mutual devotion will make anybody rich and happy, for one who is happy is rich in those things that count. Have you ever been away from everyone you knew, and discovered how lonely and unhappy you are without your friends and pals. ' If you are quick to l ake friends, all is well, but on the other hand, if you are a person who has few friends, is not a good mixer, and withdraw from others, you are in a predicament, and 1 would surely not want to exchange places with yon. Suppose everyone always went alone, speaking to no one. and attending strictly to his own business. What a terrible world this would be I Being alone a great deal makes a fellow narrow and selfish, and places him in a rut from which it is difficult to climb. Such people never know the pleasures of asso- ciations; they miss a greal deal of fun that is of great value in the formation of both character and brain. In order that a person may learn to handle bin self in every emergency, and that hi ' may gradually know the ways of the world, it is necessary thai lie observe what goes on about him. lie must unsea t . igsf-f- 19 2 8 Heei — issm Fifty-eiglit cs®r -iG»Ki Me» T,A REVISTA w wor m t6iXJ) mingle with others whom he respects, and have ;i wide circle of firm friends. A real friend is one who stands by a fellow through thick and thin, through hardships and success, lie must be sympathetic when i hum ' s go wrong, ;iikI glad when they turn mil well. I have seen boys, and girls too, who were friendly with whoever was popular, especially athletic heroes. When popularity waned, as ii must ;it some time too, they turn their attention to others in order thai they mighl enjoy the association of those who were in the limelight. Such friends as these are nol really friends of anybody. Friendship never works both ways. When ii does, it is not friendship at all, only something to be deplored. We sec one-sided friendships too often. This is the side of the human touch thai is hard to bear, bul ii only helps us in mold characters thai are able to forgive and forget. In the formation of friendships, there is much to be considered. Before 1 limine ' too intimate with another, one should know his ground. II is much better to go slow than to have regrets. As a boy in grammar school, I becan e too intimate with a boy who turned nut In lie very differenl from what I ex- pected. The result was, thai after our friendship had gone quite a ways, I found mil thai I had I u fooled, thai my so-called friend was a differenl kind uf ,-i person than I had believed him In he. Ii was a difficult matter In break these relations, bul I did ii gradually. I could nol tell hi i whal the trouble was, or he would have had the idea thai I considered myself better than he. 1 learned through this contael thai il is best to go slow in choosing friends. It is not a good practice for friends, no matter how much they think of each nt her. to become too intimate. It is nol good to confine friendships to one or two persons, [fa person has a large circle of friends, a little discord caused from a misunderstanding, is nol so noticeable, and if conditions warrant a break that is unavoidable, it is not so widely known. No one wants his affairs aired more than is necessary, and il is easy to avoid this if one is care- ful in selecting his friends. " He sun ' you ' re right, then go ahead " is a good slogan when it comes to forming friendships. Friendships that endure throughout the years are about the grandest, luosi treasured things in existence. There is a quotation which says " A boy ' s best friend is his mother. " 1 could nol dispute this, for a n other ' s friendship is but a wise love that knows when to urge and when to check a love that guides us wisely and grows with us. Looking back through my school years, I sec many teachers. They came into my life in a sorl of a mechanical way. but the memory of them lives on and on in my heart. I see the hours of their tine devoted to me in an endear or to fill my brain with wisdom, build up my body and morals, and inspire me with a desire to choose only the best things in life. Many of them have gone out of my life, perhaps forever, as I know not where I hey are now. but 1 value them among the best friendships I have had and tiie can never break this bond. Surely, the human touch is the thing that counts most, the thing thai makes life most worth-while. GEORGE FITCH.

Not only in dramatic achievements, bul in debating and public speaking this department has become one of l he besl known and most popular courses in the school. Besides the two important plays of the year, two one-act com- edies have been presented in assembly. These plays were: " The Very Naked Boy, " and " The Florist Sliop. " " Adam and Eva " and " Fanny and the Servant Problem " were the longer comedies presented this year. Tryouts for these plays were open to the whole school, and many students availed themselves of this opportunity to take pari in a school activity. One of the most obvious characteristics of the plays this year lias been the splendid stage technique displayed. This, of course, was altogether due to Miss Schulze who coached the players. Although no championships were obtained in de- bating or oratory, our speakers showed a splendid form and knowledge of their subjects. Wanda Hayden, Lynn Rains, Vernice Callaway, and Robert Willard composed the debating team this year and Wanda represented V. U. H. S. in the county eliminations for the National Oratori- cal ( Vmtest. Miss Schulze has been called upon many times to provide speakers for assemblies and the various service clubs. This year the call has been answer- Miss Frances Schulze ed successfully each time.

Miss Frances Schulze ably demonstrated her ability as i directress, and the cast their fine dramatic talent. Fanny, the title role, was taken by Doris Hershberger. Her diction was almosl perfect and her characterization was splendid. Her husband, Venicn Wetherell, Lord Bantock, was played by Milo Thomas, who made a very solicitous bridegroom, indeed. I. ynn Rains, as the austere, dignified butler, the uncle of Fanny, seemed to take greal delight in making his niece into a lady. His pari was exceedingly well done, as was the part of his wife, Susannah Bennett, which was taken by Madeline Duke. Fanny ' s cousins, .lane and Honoria Bennett, were played bj Margaret Kendall and Anna Margarel Reese, respectively. A clever and pleasing comedy touch was added by Vernon ' s old maid aunts, the Misses Wetherell, played by Dorothy Langford and Gertrude ( Jorcoran. Dr. Freemantle, the typical old English doctor, was very well done by Burnett Atkinson. " Miles Reiger made his debut as an actor in the part of Fanny ' s business manager. It was very well carried out. The Empire Girls, Fanny ' s stage friends, added much color to the production. They included Blanche Nancarrow, Vernice G-alla- way, June Rosamond, Lucile Berry, Virginia Spafford, Eloise Jeffcoat, Hazel Ledbetter, Dorothy M. Carter and Dorothea Byers. The theme of the play was the unraveling of the difficulties Fannj had when she unwittingly married an English lord and is taken to his ancestral home, only to find that all of his twenty-three ssrvants are her oiilv near relatives. r-CZdi- i9H- 19 2 8 -o®»= -t6n Sixty-two is©r -tstzsmev LA KF, 1ST A " Muscat " " lS Xo I.

The question for debate was: Resolved; that installment plan buying as developed in the United States during the pasl ten years has had more harmful than beneficial effects on the purchaser. The affirmative team, composed of Bobby Willard and Vernice Grallaway mi ' t defeat at the hands of Moorpark, but the negative upheld by Lynn Rains and Wanda Hayden, decisively defeated Ojai. Much credit is due Miss Frances Schulze, whose interest and coaching contributed largely toward the good showing of the team.

Hebestreit, the music department of the Ventura High School is unsurpassed by any other school in the county. During the past year, the glee clubs, orchestra and band have reached such a high degree of technical skill that they have received nothing bul compli- ments from all who hear them. Miss Long lias successfully directed five organizations tins year: two glee clubs, a boys ' quartet, mixed quartet and girls ' sestet, and has produced an operetta as well. Mr. Hebestreit has organized a thirty-piece band and enlarged the orchestra to a very creditable size. Both directors have been very generous with their music and have re- sponded to alnio t every call for High School music. Of course, all the excellency of the music department doe- not belong to Mi-- Long and Mr. Hebestreit, for the students who have worked under these two have displayed a great deal of talent and am- bition. The members of the glee clubs showed their ability a- indi- viduals ami a- group in " Peggy and the Pirate.

The firsl few ensemble practices were nerve- racking. The members were playing " blue notes " most of the time, bul under the skillful leadership of our teacher we were soon able to play in tune. After much study and dilligcnt practice, we were rightly proud when we made our first bow to the assembly. We played in a fairly creditable fashion a tone pi em, " Apple Blossoms. " New music has been purchased; this, added to the few old selec- tions we have inherited from preceding orchestras, has given us a Lib- rary of which we can be proud. Although our organization has not a complete instrumentation, we are quite satisfied with the progress our t wenty-four rnembei s have made. We who have had the privilege of playing under the leadership of Mr. Hebestreit feel well repaid for our efforts, for it has not always been easy to meet his demands. To the many who have not found it possible to avail themselves of this splendid opportunity of musical advancement, especially the Sophomores and incoming Freshmen, we wish to say: Come nut next year, and make the orchestra a larger and better organization than it lias been in the past. — Jean Atkinson, ' 28. v »i- - +- 19 2 8 -«- »t- -K5 u Sixty-six 43{e f " -terns LA REVISTA «mu©i- -i s»o [n eluded in the list of subjects presented to the student body this year was " Hand.

Gradually, interested and ambitious students have enrolled until now there are now thirty play- ers. With no exception these thirty members have worked untiringly in order to present to their fellow school mates an oganization of which they could be proud. The band has been presented on several occasions and in each case lias made a very creditable showing.

Having five periods during the week in which to practice, instead of two, as last year, there was much more time to work up more difficult and artistic songs. The greatest triumph achieved during the year was the operetta, " Peggy and the Pira te. " The girls deserve much credit for their clever costuming and fine interpretation of the choruses. The girls ' glee club entertained their mothers and prospective members of the glee club at a tea on May 4 in the music room. It was a very lovely affair and was a distinct artistic and social success. Every member of the glee club realizes that the club owes its meat success almost entirely to Miss Long. Besides admiring her for her fine musicianship, every girl has grown to love her for her never- failing tact and patience. She has caused the glee club to be truly harmonious in spirit as well as in the rendition of their songs.

The club has made several public appearances at the service clulis and has appeared on several musical programs and assemblies. Together with the girls ' glee club, the buys produced the operetta, " Peggy and the Pirate, " which was an unusually successful musical comedy. The members of the glee club have always cooperated with each other, and under the fine direction of Miss Long feel that they have been a credit to the Ventura High School student body. A great many glee club members are graduating tins year, but there has been an active interest in the glee club displayed by the lower classmen, and prospects are bright for an even better glee club next ear. ijrs - •aaH 19 2 8 -H»«- acy« Sixty-nine «j w — — w irtm LA REVISTA ««j si ?isis GIRLS ' SEXTETTE This is the second year the girls ' sextette has been organized. 11 lias been very popular and lias inane many public appearances.

The Ventura High glee clubs had exceptional talent for a production of this kind, and with such an artistic directress as Miss Long, the oper- etta was enjoyed from start to finish by the large audience that heard it. Mary Bustos, whose voice has gained fame all over the county, portrayed the pari of Peggy. Her voice was well suited to the part and her acting completely charmed the audience. Playing ojjposite Mary was Eldon Schumacher, who was quite the polite pirate. His solo, ••Tin ' Locker !

Don and Winnie, the second leads, were well done by Cecil Garrison and Mary Ellen Lincoln, respectively. The love songs of both the leading couples were very well done indeed. The vidian and comedy touches were very cleverly added by Carl Dudley and Aubrey Huckaby as McGinniss and Gassaway. Harry Moore, Jr., as Bingo, received many a laugh by his antics. The choruses were composed of the two glee clubs and showed a great deal of pep. The first act was scened at a beach club. Mr. and Mrs. Mayfield are giving a party for their daughter, Peggy, and her friends.

The president of 1927-28 has been a competent one and it is a pleasure to every member of the committee to cooperate with him. One of the biggest propositions of the committee this year was the installation of the merit system. First, a merit system had to be drawn up. A committee of three was appointed to do this. The com- mittee worked after school and at night, looking over merit systems of other schools and gettng the best phases from each one to make a system by which Ventura High School could be run satisfactorily. The committee of this year has just put in monitors and drawn up the con- stitution so that next year ' s Sudent Affairs Committee can step in at the beginning of the year with a clear path and ready for work. The committee this year handled the money for plays, the op- eretta, Radiator and I. a Revista, taking money in bulk and paying expenses for each as was needed. All we have to will to next year ' s Student Affairs Committee is brains, intelligence, common sense and ability to carry out their plans. — Dot Serene, Secretary. . r , . r oaes t ww »■■ 19 2 8 »- or ' i e »u Seventy-eight VS8» " -iGKUwev LA REVISTA «»« W®r- Ifflw -ia - I 9 2 8 -»i®i- Seventy-nine -iS t» V 5 f- rtSKsme LA RE VISTA w«ns©r ns w MR.

Cecil Boss Secretary-Treasurer - Vivian Kemper " That tlif practical nature of general science may be clearly shown by its application to daily life " has been the purpose of the Science club. The club was organized in September, L927, and has throughout the year successfully maintained its standard. While not the largest nor yet the most active organization its members have faithfully worked for the interests ol general science. Not dry, unineteresting theories, but vital experiments have been the keynote of our meetings. The laws of nature and the subsequent laws of science have been successfully demonstrated both by our instructor, Mr. Hebel, and by students. The scii nee club has given definite proof thai not numbers but cooperation among members makes a successful organization. We claim no honors in size or activities, but we rightly maintain an ad- herence to purpose. Surely we are justified in being proud of our membership in the Science Olub.

Our tennis team has gone undefeated throughoul the inter- ,-ilulaiiie tournaments-. Our inter-class games were true examples of sportsmanship. A true leve for a clean name has predominated in all of our contests. The tennis club is unique in that it has no registered members. It includes all these interested in tenuis who are bona-fide members of the associated student body.

Peters hurled good ball and was never in danger. The Pirates hil the ball hard and often, collecting a total of fifteen hits while the Lernon Growers gol four hits. Wright pitched the last two innings, allowing one hit and no runs. Ventura vs. Santa Paula An over-confident baseball team was turned back by Santa Paula in the second county game by a score of 10-7. The Glen City bovs scored seven runs in the third inning on two hits and seven errors. Wright relieved Peters in the box in the fourth stanza and allowed two runs. The Pirates hit the ball in every inning bul poor base running kepi them from scoring. Ventura was going strong to ward the last, but it was only a seven-inning game and a possible victory was cut off. Ventura vs. Oxnard Ventura went into a triple tie for the county championship when they shut out Oxnard 6-0 on the latter ' s field. The Prates hit " Lefty " Goodge hard all through the game while Wright held the Yellow- jackets in check. . . Snappy fielding kept Oxnard from scoring and snappy hitting won the game for Ventura. -is — 1 ' ) 2 ?, -h««- i ine hundred el ' ■ ■ o -it j u«» — _ usrnjms LA RE VISTA «»« ree i= is Ventura- vs. Santa Paula The Pirates buried Santa Paula ' s hopes for a county champion- ship when they nosed oul the Glen City boys on Oxnard ' s rain-soaked field by a 2-1 score. Santa Paula scored the first run in the third inning on a hit, a stolen base and an error. Ventura slipped their scores over the plate in the fifth frame on two hits and an error. Wright and Buckner hooked up in a pitchers ' battle with Wright holding the advantage. Ventura vs. Oxnard Ventura earned the right to meet Villanova for the county title when they trimmed Oxnard in a wild and woolly game for the class A championship. The score was 12-8. Oxnard took an early lead by scoring four runs in the first in- ning on three hits and an error. The Pirates came back strong to score six in their half of the inning and increase it in almost every frame thereafter. Wright stayed the full game, holding an edge on Goodge. Ventura vs. Villanova The county championship again became Ventura ' s when they dished out an 8-0 defeat at the expense of Villanova, " B " league champs. The game was even to the third frame when the Pirates col- lected live hits for seven runs. In the sixth stanza a walk and two sac- rifices netted another tally. Wright pitched great ball, allowing only one hit anil striking oul nine men out of twenty-four battel ' s who faced him during the seven innings. Ventura vs. Bur bank A sixth-inning rally that netted six runs and paved the way for fourteen more, gave the slugging Pirates a ' 21-11 decision over Bur- bank in the first play-off for the Southern California championship. Up to the sixth frame the Pirates were trailing 4-1, but Shrider, star t wirier, weakened before Ventura ' s barrage of hits. Peters and Mitchell led an attack with a home run apiece, while Jewett collected five hits in as many trips to the plate. Every man on the Ventura team got at least two hits. Wright hurled good ball but loose playing in the infield kept him in a hole for over half the game. var si _ KWi - 19 2 8 H»r- One hundred twelve wOr -ks uwa L. l{KVISTA«iw(8f -ICSKU Harry Bostwick ] ' ;it Mahoney Byron Rainey c.-iil Dudley LETTERMAN ' S CLUB Tony Schumacher Tex !ro vthers Leonard Fulbrighl Dick Gould Tom Meilandt Joe Guzman Vincenl Palomares Marvin Davis Bill Haydock ±JButo sksSH- 19 2 One hundred thirtei n -«jrt MS9I- -tSKjt |, hk 1ST A " rust- l®ftu G. A. A. Presidenl ______ Mary Anorga Vice-President - - - - Elizabeth Stover Secretary-Treasurer Dorothy Langford The Girls ' Athletic Association is a club of three years ' pros- perous standing with the organization in V. U. H. S. It was formed in the school for the main purpose of interesting Ventura high girls in clean and healthful athlotic activities. The club is based apon a point system, fifty points being the membership requirement. After ■ ne hundied points have been earned the member is given a felt i. A. A. emblem. Points are given for participation in interscholastic and inter- class sports and for outside activities, thusgetting the girls that are not, interested in school activities to make their points by hiking, camping, horse-bacl. riding and swimming. ' I he cluli has also undertaken social activities. This year the girls gave a luncheon as an act of hospitality and good Fellowship to the I i mpoc and Ventura foi Iball squads, which was very ' we ll re- ceived and helped to create a feeling of friendship between the two f. chools. The i. A. A. has an annual week end camp every year, and this year promises even a larger crowd for the glorious trip. The club always has in mind to promote a healthy mind and develop a vigorous and capable body for the high school girl. It is hoped thai in succeeding years the club will hold the girls ' interesjl and keep its standing popularity in the Ventura high school. Ellen Reed, ' 28.

Ventura did not approve, and hei girls were discouraged aboul girls ' athletics in gen ,., ;il ; but Moorpark wiote and asked that we play three games with Ilial school. Tin ' winner of two was In have the county cup. Moorpark vs. Ventura The Ventura basketball team met Moorpark tor the first of the three proposed games on the Moorpark out door court. The line-up which stalled the game was, " Kido " lieed, Shirley Mercer, forwards; " Babe " Dent. " Chunipy " Coy, centers: Winnie Savage and Prances Chamberlain, guards. Substitutes were. Bertha Marple and Ivy Gruc. Our girls proved that they knew basketball and how to play it. The final score was ::i W in Ventura ' s favor.

Char trusty six again played well and showed excellenl training and team work. Using the same line-up as in the previous game with Moorpark, Ventura won the county cup. INTERCLASS HOCKEY The sophomores and freshmen played off first with the sophs, winning with a score of 2-1. Then came the old rivals — the dignified seniors must meet the worthy juniors. This was a fast game with each i earn holding hack the other. The juniors won, playing the winning sophomores and were proclaimed hockey champions. The winning team was composed of Dorothy Langford, Mary Am rua, .Jeanne Zapf, Harriet Hill, Mary Ellen Lamb, Edith Frei, Wanda Hayden, Elizabeth Stover, Elise Bianchi and Rose Schwab. Substitutes were Alice Sorem E. Bottroff and Juanita Salazar. GIRLS ' ATHLETICS Due to the fact that practically all interscholastic games among the girls have been abolished in Ventura county, Ventura High School has adopted an ultra-mura] sport program supplemented by County Play Days. Interclass names have been played in hockey, soccer, basket- ball am! volleyball; and baseball is to be " run off " this month. Due to our climate and excellent tennis courts, tennis is a year-round sport and much interesl lias been shown in it all year. Tin first Play Day at Fillmore was attended by a large number m our girls. Non-competitive basketball, tennis and swimming were the chosen sports. Although no first places were won by the Ventura girls in tennis, June Rosamond, Shirley Mercer and Doris Ryan won several matches. In swimming Ruth Woolley distinguished herself by winning two first places, one in fancy diving and one in a stunt race. Both Play Days at Oxnard and Ventura on March 10th and 29th were called off on account of the rain, and the final one of the year is sched- uled at Santa Paula in May. Ventura High School is fortunate in having a group of girls who are actively interested in athletics, and due to this fact the coaches find it a pleasure to work with them and carry out the physical education program.
