The spirit of progress is the spirit of Ventura. There is no more
outstanding example of this than in the Ventura City Schools. Two
years ago the students of Ventura High School were given a new high
school building. Today they look forward to another new building-a
senior high and junior college.
: Words cannot express the appreciation of the students. The people
, of Ventura have expressed their confidence in youth by action and
Z money appropriations. Youth can repay them only by actions. Progress
in education is evident.

Of knowledge and of power
But each must learn to use these keys
If upward he would tower.
The door of opportunity
Awaits the magic touch.
It opens wide to boy or girl
Who works and studies much.
The school stands ready with the keys '

BOARD OF TRUSTEES
Two years ago, the students of Ventura High School thanked the
Board of Trustees for the new high school building. Now we take this
opportunity to thank them for the new senior high and junior college 5
building which we are soon to enjoy. We feel that it was due to the
efforts of every member of the board that the new building is to become
a fact, rather than a dream.

HIGH SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION
Under the leadership of Melrowe Martin, superintendent of Ventura
City Schools, a new administration has controlled Ventura Union High
School. Lyal Wells, principal of Lincoln School and future superintendent
of Ventura Junior High School, Miss Beatrice Lantz, research director
of Ventura City Schools, John A. Mosher, boys' vice principal, and Miss
Addie Belle Long, girls' vice principal and dean of girls, have been the
chief administrators of Ventura Union High School during the year
"He who hath knowledge and shareth it,
Is a true friend."
How rich in friends we students of Ventura High School have been
during the past year. Not only have the teachers shared their academic
knowledge but we feel that they have helped us in our social activities.
They have been true friends and we appreciate it.

In January 1925 the first mid-year class in the history of Ventura
City Schools appeared as Freshmen in Ventura High. Too few in num-
ber to take an active part in student government as a class they spent
their days becoming orientated until the following August when they
joined in activities if not in actual class designation the spring
class of 29. I
For four years the classes of 1929 worked together until again in
January 1929 the first midyear class in the history of Ventura grad-
uated. But finding it hard to sever bonds of friendship by the granting
of a diploma we again join the spring class of 29 with the feeling that
having completed our four short years in this school we can say they
were the happiest years of our lives. As we look back we see the value
of our high school education in relation to the curricula and to social
Many of the members of both classes have achieved such fame as
high school activities award. Winners in art music drama oratory
athletics journalism and scholarship are counted in our roll Surely it
is with due pride that we graduate with a feeling of joy of having ac-
complished something Worth while and of having left our mark as a
class of Ventura High School

Proudly to be seen.

Sad our hearts will be
But our thoughts Will e'er be turning
Back again to thee.

Senior Class Prophecy
It is the year 1939, in the town of Tweedleville, Santa Cruz Island.
Many startling changes have taken place among the graduates of the
class of 1939. By remarkable coincidence all of the graduates have as-
sembled in the court room as witnesses, principals and spectators in the
famous Duke vs. Heath Trial.
As the scene opens, two newsgirls, Elizabeth Stover and Alice
Sorem, are heard announcing the famous trial.
The Court is called to order by the bailiff, Charles Browng he an-
nounces the members of the court room-Judge, Austin Shonafelt 5 Prose-
cuting Attorney, Harry Moore, Jr. and the Defense Attorney, Wanda
Hayden 5 The Detective, Burnett Atkinson g Court Recorder, Daisybelle
Bottroffg Court Typist, Oma Morssg News Reporters, Ralph Boyd,
Roberta Green and Katherine Fosnaugh.
Judge Austin Shonafelt orders the bailiff to bring in the jury which
is composed of Verner Homer, operator of Homer Chain Stores, Jean
Zapf, Angelo Muzio, Annie Garcia, Betty Cassidy, Ruth Clark, Mary
Ellen Lamb, Albert Eddy, Helen Johnson, Frank Deck Cforeman of the
juryl, Claude Chaney and Arthur Kinney.
The Prosecuting Attorney Harry Moore, Jr., states his case to
the jury and the Defense Attorney, Wanda Hayden, states her case to
Madeline Duke, the well known heart-breaker is charged with having
stolen the famous multi-millionaire, baseball magnate, Roy Heath's false
teeth. The general feeling is that she stole the aforesaid teeth to blight
his society wife's CMary Ellen Lincolnj love for him.
The Policeman, George Fitch, with the aid of his prima donna wife,
Mary Bustos, has rounded up single handed all of the occupants of the
Hotel, who were present in the ball room at the time of the robbery.
The witnesses are called to the stand in the following order: Jean
Grove Fry, Mrs. Heath's chaufeur. It is very evident that this pair
have been madly in love for some time and owing to this reason have
refused to give testimony.
The next witness is the hermit James Petit, who was seen prowling
around the hotel. Being unable to be understood, he is dismissed.
Next is the shop girl, Virgie Holt, who is noted for her shop lifting
and whose presence here, throws a new light on the trial.
The silence of the court room is broken by the entry of the bug-
oligist, Reid Hammond and his partner, Dorothy Mackin, who enchants
the insects with her wonderful whistling. The janitor, Roland Sherwood
is ordered to take these intruders out. Jack Dennison, the great golf
bug, now comes on the scene causing quite a disturbance.
Bradley, the cook for the Heath family, followed by her ardent suitor,
The hotel and ball room Manager, Kenneth McNeil, brings as wit-
nesses his employees, the pianist, Harriet Hill, the check girl, Ruth
Henriksen, the telephone girl, Maxine Massickg the bell hop, James
Collins, the night watchman, Fred Campbell 3 the dancing instructor,
May Fraser, and the soda fountain clerk, Donald Perry.
The next witnesses are those who have examined at some time
Mr. Heath. First, Dr. Frank Greathouseg his nurse, Zola Moore, and the
dentist, Lorena Lebaron.
Now there appears in the scene the Butler Follies Beauties: Louise
Carter ftheir starj, Peggy Hammons, Barbara Dennis, Mildred Bowker,
Jeanette Jones, Thelma Dealy, Maxine Herring, Ann Fisher. They are
represented by their manager, James Butler. With them is their ward-
robe mistress, Margaret McDonald.
We are interrupted by the cameraman, Eldon Schumacher and his
wife, Virginia Horsley, who have come to take pictures of this trial. With
them is the famous sketch artist, Robert McCormick. They are fol-
lowed by the world-known adventuress, Nellie Warde, who causes a dis-
turbance by her winning ways. Then Mary Silva, an antique collector,
and her traveling companion, Una Levy, come in. It is believed that
she desired these teeth for her collection of antiques.
These witnesses furnish gossip for the three old maids, Wilna Shan-
non, Pauline Jones and Grace Wilcox, who are present at the trial.
The prizefighter, Russell Kingston, and his manager, Bill Kennedy,
then make their appearance.
Great excitement is caused by the entrance of the circus manager,
Vincent Palomares, and his troupe composed of : the fat lady, Juanita
Salazar, the skinny man, Lyman Wright, his wife, Elizabeth Gilliland,
the aerolistg the tight-rope walker, Edith Frei, the midget, Ninamae
Bryson, and the lion trainer, Winifred Savage.
The next witness is the minister, Leonard Fulbright and his newly
acquired wife, Edna Simpson. Excitement is caused when his missing
wife, Dorothy Langford, rushes to the judge's bench and declares herself
The Judge, while trying to settle the dispute between the wives of
Mr. Fulbright, is interrupted by Bob Mello, an escaped lunatic who de-
clares he has the false teeth but refuses to give them up or give any
clue as to where and how he gained their possession.
The curtain is drawn on the mystery of the stolen false teeth, no
one being held responsible for this episode.

I LOW SENIOR CLASS I
The J unior-Senior class of' this year, with William Aplin as its leader,
5 has acquired its usual amount of success. In the Food Contribution :
Contest at Christmas, our class Won with a one hundred per cent contri- f
bution. As for the inter-class track meet, it was a complete walkavvay
for Art Langford. After a considerable amount of discussion, class
: sweaters of red and white were chosen and ordered. ,
: The Monday before the mid-year class graduated, our class spon-
sored a banquet for the graduates. The dinner Was cooked by Mrs. May
Stone's cooking class, and was served by the girls of the H-8 class. After
45 the banquet there was an informal dance in the music room. The entire
l evening's program was managed by the L-12 class.
The class feels that it has fulfilled a yearis activity in good order, I
and that it is With just pride that We hail ourselves as the "Winter class

The H-11 class of '30 has had a very successful year. Over half of
the class is getting rings and pins.
The Juniors gave a class dance, the first that has ever been given in
the history of V. U. H. S.
It seems the girls have been coming out on top in athletics, winning
second in Hockey, first in Speedball, then having still higher aspirations,
stepped right up and took the basketball championship away from the
Sophomores. The boys although not having won much in sports, we will
have to admit they are pretty good, anyway.
At the recent Eisteddfod, several of the Juniors won awards for
their art. Speaking of art we have some future "funny-page" artists
among the boys.
Whoopee! clear the track here comes the Juniors!!!

LOW JUNIOR CLASS
The members of the class of '31 have been a credit to their class
and school. If you Will look back over the activities and accomplish-
ments of the Ventura High School in the past year, you will find that
the Junior B's have entered and have helped make these activities a suc-
cess. Members of this class have belonged to the Glee Clubs and Orches-
tra, and have taken part in school plays. We were represented on all the
athletic teams of this school. Last fall we successfuly gave a play before
the assembled student body. In April, We gave a class picnic which was
held at Wheelers Hot Springs, and enjoyed by everyone Who Went. We
also received our class rings in April. Taken as a Whole, the Junior B's
have had a very successful year.

HIGH SOPHOMORE CLASS
Our life as a class has been but two short years, but in those two
years we have done more than our share in student activity.
Three of our members took part in the three-act play given at the
first of the year. Competition was open to the entire school and we feel
justly proud of the fact that inexperience did not hold back our class.
The fact that we were underclassmen did not hide the dramatic talent
of our classmates, and they portrayed their parts with real histrionic
Athletics have not been without representatives from our class.
Varsity football and basketball claimed at least one member of the class.
Inter-class sports go as a matter of course. We are not champions always
but we manage to hold our own.
Club activities would not be what they are without the number of
sophomores taking part. Both Glee Clubs and the band and orchestra
have representatives from our class. Needless to say our scholastic
ability can be proven by a glance at the school records. All in all, we
feel that we are an unusual class. When we become Seniors we shall be
almost indispensable in school activity and record.
LOW SOPHOMORE CLASS
Few in numbers, but great in school spirit! That is the motto of
the Winter class of '32. Our number may be limited but our class and
school spirit is unbounded. We are not Without our talented ones either.
We have class representatives in almost every activity. Our eulogy is
necessarily short. We close With a plea: "Give us time!"

Whence your beauty so grand
Surely you must be under

HIGH FRESHMAN CLASS
The biggest class in Ventura High! The peppiest class in Ventura
High! The most promising class in Ventura High! What more can
we say? -
The biggest class because we are the greatest in numbers. The
peppiest because we have ably demonstrated that fact in the pep as-
semblies. Our songs and yells are uncomparable. Our pep is contagious,
so that we have served the school in one of the most honorable ways.
We are the most promising class because no one knows our possibilities.
Even we do not. We do not know because We can not guess what time
and experience will do to us. But we do know that if we keep up at the
rate in which we have been going, we are going to be the most phenom-

Student Body Organization A
. , A new principle of student body organiza- :
tion was established at Ventura High School
this year. Each of the major officers was
given more to do.
The president of the student body takes
charge of all assemblies, and represents the
student body Whenever necessary.
The vice president is an aid to the presi-
dent in a more literal sense than usual. He I
often takes charge of the general assembly i n
and does work for the student body in general.
The treasurer is official bookkeeper of I
A . the high school. All of the accounts of the
VINCENT PALOMARES student body go through the hands of the
Student Body President treasurer, E. M. Prescott, financial advisor,
and Melrowe Martin, principal.
Almost all of the Work of the student afairs committee is done
by the student body ofiicers With the aid of the faculty counselors.
The student body officers here take this opportunity to thank the
members of the student body for their co-operation in all school activities
this year. An improved school spirit is the result of absolute co-operation.

NELLIE WARDE MISS ETHEL MCCANDLESS
Faculty Advisor Editor
A new method of publishing school news was started at Ventura
High School this year. Instead of printing a school paper, the Journal-
ism Class, under the supervision of Miss Ethel McCandless, and Nellie
Warde, editor, published a page in each of the city papers one day each
week. This method was suggested by Melrowe Martin, superintendent
of Ventura City Schools. It has an advantage over the old way of pay-
ing a printer to publish a paper which is only read by school students, and
which does not give the townspeople an opportunity to know what is going
on in the schools. When the news is published in the city papers every-
one who subscribes is given the opportunity' to read the school news.
But the big factor in this system is that a much higher standard of
journalism is required before the news is printed. The advantage of this
system to the journalism students is unmeasurable.
As a result of work required of the class, remarkable progress has
been made in journalism this year. Upon being granted a chapter of
Quill and Scroll, a national honorary society for high school journalists,
eleven of Miss McCandless' students were granted membership. The
national judges remarked about the unusually high standard of work and
stated that the news articles submitted for judging were printed in a
city newspaper was a large factor in their favorable judging.
The first semester of this year was devoted entirely to learning the
principles of news writing. The class spent its entire time writing news
items. Special attention was given to the plain news story, since that
type is required by the city paper. Those who took journalism as a
special activity were given opportunities to write features, proof-read,
During the second semester special attention was given to head-line
writing. On Wednesday afternoon, the day before our page is published,

two of the members go to the Free Press, one of the city papers, and
write all of the headlines for the school page. This unusual opportunity
is given to students whose work is better than average.
On May 25, the members of the class went to Los Angeles and
went through the news plant of the Los Angeles Evening Herald. After
having the workings of the newspaper explained they Went to the Com-
mercial Arts and Engraving Company's shop where the principle points
of engraving were shown them.
The news class has helped to produce the annual, La Revista, this
year. As the book was put together, each step was explained to the
class by the editor, Wanda Hayden. Several members of the class are
also members of the year-book staff. They have had the double advan-
tage of gaining experience in news writing and year-book editing. The
entire year's success may be attributed to Miss Ethel McCandless,
faculty advisor and teacher.

School organizations 'when eleven pupils of Miss Ethel McCandless, jour?
nalism instructor, met on the eveningrof March 20, 1929, to take the
vows of Quill and Scroll, national honorary society for high school
The new organization is noteworthy for several reasons. It is the
first club in the school, if not in the county, to compose a chapter of a
national society, and will profit accordingly from the manifold advantages
of such an affiliation. Numbered among the sponsors of Quill and Scroll
are some of the most powerful figures in journalism, men and women
who will always be willing to help a fellow-wearer of the little gold pin
emblematic of membership. The society issues monthly to every member
an edition of "Quill and Scroll," a magazine containing articles by some
of the foremost Writers in our country.
In view of the fact that membership is open only to those who have
accomplished some especially efiicient work in journalism, it is gratifying

ENVOYANT L' ART
The Envoyant L' Art club is one of the newer organizations in the
high school. It was formed in January with the advice and help of Miss
Georgia Cochrane, art instructor. The purpose of the club is the gain-
ing and promoting of knowledge of art, not only among the members
but in the high school in general.
The club meets each Tuesday during roll room period in the art
room. At these meetings the attendance is checked by sketches which
the students make during the week. Many of these are made on trips
and parties which the club has enjoyed throughout the semester. An-
other means of carrying the art message is during each meeting when
thelife and work of some great painter and his masterpiece is discussed
by ia member of the class.
' 'In May the club gave an assembly for the high school students,
showing two-reel moving pictures on'Art.
Easter 'cards designed by Kenneth Birdsall wereofsponsored by the
Envoyant L' Art.i These were sent through 'the' Red 'Cross to the Sol-
dier's Home in Tucson, Arizona. - L L i T
i 'ltt Dlueuto the interest aroused in home work, the club was able to
enter the Eisteddfod Art exhibit. Prizes inroil paintings were won by
Mildred DeGraffreinried, first, and May Fraser, second. T
We hope next year to enter several branches of fine arts ,rather
than just one. We are very 'proud of our pioneers and look' forward to
a brilliant future for the Envoyant L' 'Arty T 'G ' ' p '

Carrying on a precedent set last year, the Spanish Club is still the
largest club in Ventura High School. Its members are a lively group,
its activities are always interesting.
Shortly after the second semester began, the club held its annual
initiation. Again the traditions of the organization were upheld when
one of the hardest initiations of the year was passed by the new mem-
bers. It is because of the rigorous test before any one becomes a mem-
ber that the club feels it is successful. The eligibility rules are that any
third or fourth year students, any Spanish speaking students, or any
second year students averaging a grade of A or B may become members.
The annual Spanish fiesta, which the club sponsors, is now being
planned. The fiesta this year will be in the form of a Spanish picnic ati
Matilija. The participants will be required to wear Spanish costumes,
and the food Will be typical of the old California Spanish meals.
As in all preceeding years, the members of this organization feel a
debt of gratitude to Mrs. Laurena Marzen Baker, the club advisor. Every
year Mrs. 'Baker gives her untiring efforts toward the success of the
club. It is With a feeling of deep appreciation that the members say,
La Cercle Francais is one of the most interesting clubs socially in
the high school roster. The oiiicers are elected at the beginning of ,the
school year. ' , A
This year's activities have been confined mostly to the social events.
One of the most memorable events was the meeting at the Gould home
Where several French card games and the usual American entertainment
was enjoyed. A
The club is open to membership to any who have studied French
and they are guaranteed a splendid opportunity of getting more or less
into the social swim at V. U. H. S. by belonging to the La Cercle Francais.
One of the unusual things about the French Circle is that all scoring
or tallying of games and such conversation over said games is carried
on in French, thus giving the members practical and enjoyable usage of

The newly organized Dramatics Club is one of the most exclusive
as well as one of the most interesting and active clubs of Ventura High
School. Its membership is confined to those who have taken part in a
major dramatic production given by the school.
In December, 1928, the club was organized under the direction of
Miss Ruth Turner and Miss Tannette J aloff, dramatic coaches at Ventura.
High. The cast and managers of the play, "Seven Keys to Baldpate,"
were initiated as charter members.
Following the production of "Seven Keys to Baldpate" a party at
which new members were initiated, was given at the home of Callie
Ransberger. At this meeting a brief resume of the year's plans were
The business meetings of the club are held every Friday during
roll-room period. Social meetings are held in evenings at the home of
With a purpose of increasing the interest and ability of its members
in dramatics, the club feels that it has had a very successful year. The
organization is small but it is also young. Its members hope it is to
become a permanent club in the school as its present activities have
proven it to be worthwhile.
The Shorthand Club organized at the beginning of the year with
only ten members, but since then has more than doubled its membership.
The club has had for its objective the improvement of its own members
in shorthand and commercial work by an informal study at each meet-
ing. To belong to this organization, students must have completed one
year of shorthand.
The members of the club presented a one-act play "Hooks and
Crooks" at a commercial assembly given on May 2. The play was a
comedy-drama. The members of the cast were: Alice Sorem, who took
the part of Jordan, a business mang Maxine Massick played the part of
Berry, a contractorg Ann Fisher and Juanita Salazar portrayed the parts
of stenographers. At this assembly Gregg transcription certificates
were awarded to the girls who successfully met the speed requirements.
Alice Sorem, representing the club, gave an advisory speech to the under-
The meetings have been held regularly twice a month throughout
the school year. Miss Julia Reid, registrar and shorthand teacher, has

sincere appreciation of each of the members of the Shorthand Club.

The Cartoon Club was conceived by Miss Georgia Cochran, our
faculty advisor and head of the entire Art Department. From a few
straggling members at the beginning it has grown into a large club. It
takes in all those who are interested in cartooning. The finshed artist
and the very beginner are together at the meetings partaking of the
most educational and interesting lectures given by Miss Cochran about

these have been discussed over and over until the would-be artist has
We of the Cartoon Club feel that we have had a very enjoyable and
beneficial year. Under the expert tutelage of Miss Cochran we have all
improved our cartooning and learned more about this most fascinating
subject which furnishes half of the jokes of life and which appears in
almost every enjoyable sort of a book.
' G. A. A.
The Girl's Athletic Association is an organization which is open to
all girls of the Ventura Union High School who are interested in athletics.
The purpose of the association is to co-operate with the Department of
Physical Education in promoting athletics and social activities with the
highest ideals of good sportsmanship and good fellowship.
Managers are appointed by the officers to ,arrange inter-class games
in the various sports. A "V" is awarded to the members of the associa-
tion after they have earned 100 points. The points may be earned in the
following activities-Hockey, Speedball, Basketball,.Volleyball, Baseball,
Tennis, Horseback riding, Swimming, and Hiking. The Play Days which
are held during the year at the different high schools in the county give
opportunity to earn additional points, as well as affording a chance to
meet girls from other schools.
The social activities of the G. A. A. included a Weiner roast at Pier-
pont Bay which was given to the Juniors who won the inter-class speed-
ball championship. The girls are looking forward to the usual good time
which is always had at the annual week end camp.
At the first call for football last August,
Coach Don Newmeyer was very much gratified
to see the showing that turned out. In fact
he was a little worried, because the prospects
seemed a little too bright. Sure enough, there
came a cut of twenty of his squad. This cut
was on account of ineligibility.
Coach Newmeyer did his best to whip his
bunch into shape for the alumni game the
eighth day of September. The best the boys
could do Was to get a 0-0 tie out of it. ..'The

tember 22, and in spite of the score, Was a
good battle. Two years ago, Ventura beat the Lions, but they have not
been able to repeat the order since. The lin'e is getting experience, but
this game Was a hard lesson. The Loyola sportsmanship is one of the
things that helped soften the defeat. It is one of the best We have ever
had the pleasure of meeting. 1 Page Sixty-nine
LOMPOC, 0-VENTURA, 7
Ventura met Lompoc in a practice game on September 15. This time
the boys worked together and Won out 7-0. The line was beginning to
look good and the backtield had settled down to get along Without those
who had gone down under the axe of in-
eligibility. The boys looked like the making
of a real team.
LANCASTER 0-VENTURA 0
This little game was the first one of the
league. At the time it did not look so big,
but it was the one game that kept Ventura
A from a tie for first place in the county. The
boys were just not up to their usual game.
They were not expecting such a stiff battle,
1 and Lancaster was good. All of these things
combined, held Ventura to a 0-0 tie. It was
the deciding game of the county as far as
Ventufa 'WELS CO1'lC6I'1'19d.
HARVARD, 0-VENTURA, 12
On October 13 Ventura entertained the Harvard Military Academy.
The Pirates forward Wall Was going through the Army, and smearing
their plays before they had gotten started. This same line opened holes
time after time for the backfield to gallop through. The visitors put up
a scrappy little iight but this was Ventura's day to redeem herself after
the poor showing made in the last two games, and they took advantage
of the opportunity. .
FILLMORE, O-VENTURA, 14
The Pirates set out at the Whistle on October 27 to erase the defeat
handed them by Fillmore last year. Before the game was many minutes
old, it was evident that they were going to have a job on their hands if
the sledding got any rougher. The boys tightened up after a few costly
fumbles, and proceeded to give Fillmore a broadside of line bucks, end
runs, and passes. When the smoke of battle cleared away, the Fillmore
hopes had gone down with 4 holes in the hull.
SANTA PAULA, 0-VENTURA, 8
Again the Red and White met the Orange and Black and again the
Pirates sailed into port with another victory. This game was one of the
few peppy, hard fought games in which the victory had to be earned and
well earned at that. The old rivalry between Santa Paula and Ventura
made the game one of the most exciting of the whole season. This Santa
Paula bunch has the honor of being the first and only team to win a
league game from the Oxnard squad, league champs since football was
made a recognized school sport in this county.
SANTA BARBARA, 19-VENTURA, 0
On November 3 the heavy Santa Barbara squad was taken on by the
Pirates, to get in shape for the Oxnard game the following Week. Our
boys were outweighed by about ten pounds per man, but they put up a
good scrappy fight. Time after time the line would attempt to open holes
in the Santa Barbara line, but to no avail. The backs tried to run the
ends but were dragged down before any damage could be done. When
the smoke had iiown, Ventura had the small end of a 19-0 score.
OXNARD, 31-VENTURA, 0
Again the same old story! For the last seven or eight years it has
been the aspirations of the Pirates to hang the Yellow Jackets to the
well known yard arm, but every year the same thing happens. In this
game it is usually a break of some sort that decides the score, but this
time it was just plain football and fight! It was hoped that' the Armis-
tice crowd would have some effect on the fighting quality of the team
but they seemed lost in the smoke of Oxnard s passing bucking and end
runs. For four endless quarters the boys gave all they had but it just
was not enough. Oxnard played a fast superior game and we take our
hats oi to them.

The Pirate Casaba tossers for 1929 will go down in history as one of
the best teams in the state. Led, by Captain Albert Eddy, and coached
by Harry Keaney the boys Went as far as the,C. I. F. play-offs would
allow. Altogether the boys played twenty-four games, and Were beaten
but once and that was by the Santa Barbara Recreation Center team, by
a -score of 22-23.
Some of the more iniportant games of the season besides the league
cc, iflicts were with the California.'Christian College, which we beat 34-28,
and South Western University, which was rated With the U. S. C. varsity.

For the last year or two, the lemon growers have considered basket-
ball as their sport, but this year the buccaneers walked away with the
game. Allen and Whiteman both played good games and Langford and
Eddy look like the best set of forwards we've ever had on thewfloor.
VENTURA, 29-OXNARD, 23
One of the hardest games of the year was this one with Oxnard. It
was no small measure of satisfaction for the Pirates to win over Oxnard.
It was good heady playing that turned the trick for Ventura in basketball
VENTURA, 21-SANTA PAULA, 17
The Saints sent over a mighty scrappy little bunch of fighters and
the game was in doubt until the last whistle. Santa Paula is great for
upsetting the old dope bucket. They came as near sinking the Pirates as
any in the league, but a basket by Langford and another by Garcia gave
the Pirates a lead that the Saints could not overlap.
VENTURA, 27-LANCASTER, 17
This was the last game in our league so the boys put up a good
scrap to make sure it wasn't lost. The desert lads began to find the
basket early in the game and it was only after a hard game that the
Buccaneers came away with a big score. Larrimore at guard, stood out
for his good game. However, it can never be said that our games were
won by a few individual stars.

This year the midgets were cut short on time in order to make Way

showing that the boys made. Hebel coached three teams at one time
The little fellows on the C team are not quite the smallest boys in
the school but according to Hebel they are almost the fastest.
The team played Oxnard, Fillmore, Santa Paula, and Lancaster.

A TRACK TEAM
The Ventura track teams,'A and C, made a good showing in the
county this year. Class A placed second and class C placed first in the
county meet held at Oxnard April 13. With Langford and Haydock back
and going better than ever, the Pirates had a good foundation. Sidney
De Rosa, a Freshman, gave a good account of himself in every meet he
The Seniors won the inter-class track cup this year, in spite of the
fact that the stars of the inter-scholastic meets were all underclassmen.
Art Langford was high point man in individual honors, scoring three
first places in one meet to take 15 points by himself. Meilandt and Bill
Chafee brought home a good many points in the shot put and discus
The Hrst meet was dropped to Oxnard by a close margin. The
Pirates Won the next meet from Fillmore 88-29. Following that there
was a triangle meet in which Ventura Walked 05 With high score. At a
meet in Santa Barbara in which twenty-eight schools competed, De Rosa
got fourth in the mile and Langford placed second and third in the high
hurdles and low hurdles, respectively.
B TRACK TEAM
In the county meet, Oxnard was first with 7725 points and Ven-
tura second with 465. In this meet Haydock placed first in the century,
second in the broad jump, third in the 220-yard dash. Langford made
first in high and low hurdles, and also Won first in the pole vault. These
three first places gave Langford the distinction of being high point man
at the county track meet.
This year Langford was unable to play football, but he is improving
his track record enough to make up for it. Bill Haydock deserves a lot
of credit for his Work this year g both he and Langford have another year
on the cinder path together and young Sidney De Rosa Will be going good
alongside of them next spring. Coach Donald Newmeyer has high hopes
of turning out a bunch of championship teams next year.
The Pirate racquet wielders got off to a good start this year, and
took the county championship. Coach Hebel gave the boys a good tough
schedule and they came through on top. The Pirates beat the strong
Santa Barbara squad twice by a score of 5-6, 5-7.
In the county tourney held at Ojai, we placed two doubles. Zander
and Levins hold the county doubles championship for this year. Ful-
bright and Petit were both beaten in the single semi-finals, but were
hard to down. Their opponents were both older heads at the game.
Robert and James Egan are runners up for the county championship
All in all, Coach Hebel and his team deserve a lot of credit for the
showing they made this year.

men with experience about which to build a team.
During spring vacation, the boys took a trip through the southern
part of the state. They played St. Augustine, Fullerton, Orange and
Covina. It was a tough schedule and they lost every game except the
one with Orange, which they took 11-8.

Roy Heath's pitching was a big factor in turning in a win.

Again Oxnard put the Indian sign on Ventura, and for the first time
in several years Ventura dropped a baseball game to Oxnard. A home run
by Tommy Heath was the only one that kept the Buccaneers from a com-
plete whitewashing. '

and sage brush, succeeded in bringing home another scalp. This was the
last league game and winning it put Ventura and Oxnard in a tie for first

own grounds, when they Walloped the Villanova boys 3-0, in the play-off.
It Was a tight game from the start to finish and it was only in the sev-
enth inning We managed to squeeze over the three runs that gave us the
championship' Roy Heath pitched the best game of his career, striking
out 14 men and allowing but three hits. It was his home run that paved
the Way to the championship.

sports and three Play Days in which all of the schools in the county par-
In November the girls journeyed to Fillmore where they took part
in the basketball games and swimming events.
On January 19, the Ventura and Oxnard girls acted as hostesses to
the county in a Play Day held here. Tennis, basketball, volleyball, and
baseball teams were organized from all of the different schools and
played during the morning.
Points were given to the schools for winning teams at the Santa
Barbara Play Day on February 9. Ventura placed third in this meet.
The girls attended a general assembly at nine o'clock in the morning
after which the contests started.
The enthusiasm for all sports, displayed at the beginning of the
year has not lagged and there is a large turn-out for all interclass
games. Much of the interest in girls' athletics is due to the untiring
efforts and splendid leadership of Mrs. Francis Luske, Mrs. Ruth Trunick,
and Miss Tannette Jaloff.
The Seniors carried off the hockey championship on December 14,
for the third successive year. They played the Juniors and won by a
score of 2-0, and then won from the winners of the Freshman-Sophomore
game, the Sophomores, by a score of 3-0. V
Speedball is a new game in Ventura High this year so it, was new
to Seniors and Freshmen alike. The Freshmen beat the Sophs, the
Juniors won from the Seniors, and then won the championship game
from the Freshmen by a score of 7-1.

Always the first thing on each school yearis social calendar is the
Freshmen Reception, but due to the increase of numbers in the Senior
class, and planning for the better enjoyment of the Freshmen, only the
Seniors on committees or those who had formal invitations were ad-
mitted to the party.
For the first time in the school's history formal invitations were
issued to each member of the Freshman class. The invitations requested
their presence on the afternoon of November 16 in the high school
gymnasium. The guests were met at the door by Miss Marguerite
Scott, Mrs. E. R. Baldwin, C. R. Ficken and R. L. Keller. They were
then presented with green and white bibs and informed as to the penalty
for not wearing one.
Charles Brown with his decoration committee had the gym ceiling
partially covered with green and white streamers and around the walls
was green shrubbery.
Nearly a dozen different games were played during the afternoon.
Mrs. Ruth Trunick and Nellie Warde planned the entertainment.
Fitting refreshments of popscicles and pop corn balls were served
the Freshmen and from their praise they had a Hkeenf' time.
WINTER CLASS BREAKFAST
Proving their ability to send "Mr. Sandman" on his way rather early
in the day the Winter Senior class met en masse at the Green Lantern
Tea Room on the misty morning of January 11, to enjoy their first
The adage "food for thought" was changed a little and the result
was "food for famished Seniors, makes them better thinkers."
The menu chosen by the group consisted of ham and eggs, toast,
muffins, jam and coffee. After' this hearty breakfast they adjourned to
take up their books and proceeded to school.
Ventura's first mid-year graduates were not to be outshown by the
past graduates when it came to a real Senior Banquet. On January 14,
the class and their hosts, the Juniors, met in the banquet room for the
four-course dinner. While dining they were entertained by a very appro-
priate skit entitled "Fourteen," which concerned a society climber's
dilemna as her guests offered excuses one at a time for not being able to
attend her dinner.
A After the banquet those present adjourned to the music room, where
the girls in theQr pastel gowns made the floor colorful during the in-
formal dancing, for which the "Village Boys Orchestra" played.
Superintendent Melrowe Martin, Mrs. Elizabeth Baldwin, W. Fred
Newcomb, Mrs. Hallie Moore and Tom Gould, were guests of honor at
this affair which the Junior class sponsored so successfully.
The alarm clocks for mothersb of the Seniors called the getting up
hour, an hour or two earlier when the Senior Breakfast was held January
11, at the Pierpont Country Club. Places were laid for twenty-five
Seniors and they were on hand at seven o'clock to enjoy the fruit, melba
toast, hot cakes, jam, cofee and milk for which they paid seventy-five
cents a plate.
Luckily the school was not far distant, so when the warning bell re-
called them to their duties, they arrived at school on time.
HIGH SOPHOMORE PICNIC
The thrill of a first sleigh ride Cover tall grass growing on the side
of a steep hillj and a whole barbecued lamb, was experienced by the 130
members of the H-10 class on their picnic held April 12, at the Sexton
Rancho in the Mound.
Trucks were used for transportation for the class. The chaperones
were: Mrs. Kathryn Farquhar, Mrs. Carrie Egan, Miss Anabelle Gaw
and Frank C. Doty.
After the games and sleigh rides they feasted upon the food pre-
pared by the girls of the class and at eight o'clock the tired but happy
picnickers returned to their separate places of abode.
LOW JUNIOR CLASS PICNIC
On the fourteenth day of spring the L-11 class celebrated their first
picnic at Wheelers Hot Springs. The class met at four o'clock in front
of the school where the students and teachers with their cars furnished
Those desiring to start their summer training, early went to Matilija
where they entered the not-too-warm water feven if it was springj. The
other more timid members hiked and enjoyed less strenuous games.
The girls brought lunches including sandwiches, beans, pickles,
potato chips and cake.
Miss Ethel McCandless and Miss Tannette Jaloff, the class advisors,
were the chaperones for this peppy party.
G. A. A. BAKE
Lose one, lose all, was the slogan adopted by the Girls' Athletic Asso-
ciation during speedball season. The losers of the championship title
had to play hostess to the winners. Therefore, on March 8, the speedball
teams met after school and were rushed in a truck Q15 miles perj to the
beach near Pierpont.
The Juniors, having won the championship, were served with
weiners, buns, beans and sand by the vanquished teams.
The irony of fate hit hard when speedball was introduced as the
game, but many succeeded in planning races and drop-the-handkerchief
for a more interesting diversion, as the Juniors insisted on explaining
why and what rules to follow to become champions.
No one was hurt, as Mrs. Francis Luske and Mrs. Ruth Trunick
were the chaperones and G. A. A. advisors.
ART CLUB PARTY
A successful sketching trip and picnic was held May 2, by the
Envoyant L' Art club at Pierpont beach.
The club met in the art room immediately after school and went as
a group from there to Pierpont.
After sketching the islands, ocean, and shore line, under Miss
Georgia Cochrane's instruction, the boys gathered wood for the bonfire,
over which they roasted weiners and marshmallows.
Several of the members took a dip in the briny deep, after which
the club members adjourned to their respective homes.
SENIOR DITCH DAY
While the citygwas slumbering on the morning of April 25, some 70
Seniors met in front of the city library where roll was taken by Miss
Addie Belle Long. Robert McCormick, in charge of the transportation,
saw to it that every car was full, including a chaperone.
Then the fog banks thickened with the added exhaust of twenty
automobiles, and they were off to Matilija Springs on the annual Senior
Upon arriving, about fifty Seniors, Superintendent Melrowe Martin,
Miss Long and E. M. Prescott, entered the plunge which caused the
noticeable rise of water in the pool.
At one o'clock the dinner gong gonged and one hundred happy
ditchers dashed for the tables. The girls and their mothers had prepared
a delicious lunch of beans, pickles, sandwiches, olives, potato chips, vege-
table and fruit salads, and cake. The boys furnished the ice cream cups.
Paying strict attention to the warning not to enter the water too
soon after eating, those desirous of another dip hiked to the plunge and
waited until the two hours had passed. Others hiked, played baseball
handball, and took snap shots. After two more hours of recreation, the
tired but happy picnickers returned home. Needless to say a few enjoyed
the pangs of a violet ray treatment and displayed some bright red
The Athene Clubhouse was the setting or the Junior-Senior Banquet

numerous flowers, and a well and beautifully appointed table. Clever

white crepe paper with colored candles formed the centerpieces for the
long banquet tables.
A committee of Juniors waited table and a delicious four-course
dinner was served. Only the high Seniors, Board of Trustees, and mem-

against the vari-colored gowns.

The music department of Ventura high has carried off high honors
this past year. With Miss Addie Belle Long directing both glee clubs,
boy's quartette, and girl's sextette, these organizations have proved a
credit to the school. M. C. Stern, as director of both the orchestra and
band, has proved very generous in responding to all calls for music.
A Junior glee club has been organized within the past year and is
under the direction of Miss Opal Polson. The club is composed of under-
classmen and it shows signs of being a very worthy organization.
The students who have worked under these various teachers have
done excellent work during the past year. The members of the glee
clubs displayed marked talent in the presentation of "Riding Down the
Sky." Geoffrey Morgan, author of the musical comedy, was present the
opening night of the show and afterwards he remarked, "Never have I

during this past year.
One triumph of which they are justly proud is the winning of first
place in the Eisteddfod. The competition came from Santa Paula and
Ventura girls Won first place with an unanimous vote. The judges were
all from Los Angeles and they praised Miss Long for her Work in mak-

Another success Was earned in the presentation of the musical com-

pated in this performance and the girls were praised for their clever
costuming and interpretation of choruses.
The club has been working on exceptionally hard songs this season
and as La Revista goes to press they are learning "Copre" for a gradua-

The Boys' Glee Club, in helping to present the operetta, "Riding
Down the Sky," increased their popularity very much, exhibiting fine,
artistic interpretation resulting from highly commendable training.
Not Wanting to be inactive, the boys entered the Eisteddfod and
achieved more honors for themselves and their school by Winning first
place. The Boys' Glee Club has Won first place in the Eisteddfod ever
since their initial appearance. In 1927 a beautiful cup was offered as an
award to the club Winning first place three consecutive years. Our Glee
Club has been successful in Winning twice.
The boys feel that their success and ability is due to the patient and
untiring efforts of their leader, Miss Addie. Belle Long, and to her they
wish to express their deepest appreciation for the Work she has done.
The club elected Burnett Atkinson as President, who directs them in
the absence of Miss Long.

QUARTETTE AND SEXTETTE
Two organizations of Ventura high school which have always
enjoyed unlimited popularity among the students are the girls' sextette :
and the boys' quartette. Both clubs have made numerous public appear-
ances this year and have been well received by the people of Ventura.
The sextette has made rapid strides under the direction of Miss Addie
Belle Long. They sing very difficult numbers and their repertoire is
large. Their final appearance this year will be at graduation when they
will sing "Heather Time?
Four members of the sextette will graduate this year leaving two to
try for their places next term. Mary Bustos and Mary Ellen Lincoln
make up the first soprano section, Nellie Warde and Geneva Poole, the
second, and Dorothy Langford and Paulina Weister the alto section.
The quartette is likewise a very popular organization. The personnel
includes: Forrest Deutsch, first tenor, Burnett Atkinson, second tenor, E
Harry Moore, Jr., second bass, and Bob Hill, first bass.

"RIDING DOWN THE SKY"
"Riding Down the Sky," a snappy musical comedy, was given by the
glee clubs of Ventura high on March 1. The operetta was under the
direction of Miss Addie Belle Long and all those who took part it it were
very much praised for their artistic interpretations.
Eldon Schumacher played the part of a young aviator who was
engaged by an oil magnate to pilot a plane to South America. His special
numbers were especially well received by the large audience. Mary
Bustos played opposite him taking the part of Carmelita, a Spanish
senorita whose eyes and voice won the hearts of the audience.
Bob Hill took the part of Carmelita's father and he was very real-
istic in his interpretation of a Spanish don. Nellie Warde, as Rosa
showed a perfect stage poise and her voice was well suited to her part.
Virginia Spafford portrayed the role of Maria and Burnette Atkinson
the part of an elderly suitor of Carmelita.
a country hick boy who had recently been employed as deck hand of the
airplane. He received many a laugh by his antics. Bob Mello, Tom
Meilandt, Mary Ellen Lincoln, and Fred Smallwood all deserve much
praise for their splendid work.
Geoffrey Morgan, author of the musical comedy, was present at the
opening of the show and he afterwards remarked, "Never have I seen
such professional work as is being produced by these two high school
Miss Tannette Jaloff took charge of the make-up. She was assisted
by Doris Hershberger, a former student of Ventura high, and Nellie
Warde. The costumes used for the production came from the Western
Costume Company in Los Angeles.
The comedy lead was taken by Harry Moore. His role was that of mmm.--1..--.........., ........m..--....-
BAND AND ORCHESTRA
The band and orchestra of Ventura High school have both enjoyed
a very successful year. A large measure of their popularity is due to
M. C. Stern Who has enlarged both of the organizations.
At the first of the school year a .call Was made for students who
would like to join either of these musical clubs. Never has a call re-
ceived such an enormous response. One half credit is being given to all
who participate in the work of the clubs. .
The members of the band and orchestra Wish to take this oppor-
tunity to express their deep appreciation to M. C. Stern for his untiring
patience and tact. He has caused them to be harmonious in spirit as
Well as in the rendition of their music.

With an increased number of interested students and an increase
from one coach to three this year, it is small Wonder that Ventura High
has made the progress in forensics that she has. Three major dramatic
productions have been presented to the public by the students of Ventura
High School, one formal debate Was presented in assembly, two special
assemblies of oratorical nature were presented, and Ventura has taken an
active part in the informal debate program carried out in the county
this year. - , -
At the first of the year a "Radioletta Vaudeville" was presented.
More than eighty students took part in this production. The idea was
new to the people of Ventura, but it proved to be one of the best sellers
Ventura High has sponsored. Shortly after this production, a mystery-
comedy, "Seven Keys to Baldpatef' Was presented by a cast chosen from
more than one hundred and twenty-five students. The play was one
seldom put on by high schools because of the almost professional ability
and technique required to put it over. An able cast under the direction
of Miss Tannette Jaloff and Miss Ruth Turner, combined to make this
play pronounced one of the best ever produced by Ventura. On April
25, three one-act plays were given in place of the annual spring play.
These plays entailed the efforts of a great many students who only again
proved the ability of the dramatic students and coaches at Ventura High.
MISS TANNETTE JALOFF ' MISS RUTH TURNER
The vaudeville idea was a new one to Ventura. Under the direction
of Miss Ruth Turner and Miss Tannette Jaloff, a Radioletta vaudeville
The theme centered around an old couple who were listening to the
radio one evening. They both expressed the wish that they could see
the performers. The colored mammy who worked for the old folks
heard this wish and with some magic words and actions called forth the
radio entertainers. A large loudspeaker appeared at the back of the
room, the announcer came out, -announced the numbers as if he were
really broadcasting. 1
The audience was treated to an evening of visualizing favorite radio
entertainers. A whistler, violin trio, black-faced quartette, jazz pianist,
dancers, girls' chorus, band, blues singer, harmony duet, comedians, were
but a few of the acts offered. More than eighty students were in this
Some of the acts of this vaudeville were afterwards declared to be
almost professional, others were amateurish, but combined gave the
public a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

A SPRING PLAYS
Instead of presenting the annual spring play this year, the
Dramatics Department produced three one-act plays. The plays were
"Archibald,', a comedy, "Op-O-Me Thumb", a comedy-dramag and "Dust
of the Road", a drama.
In "Archibald", Keith Corey as Archibald was the hit of the evening.
After Ruth Henriksen, as Margery Fraser, had built up a heroic picture
of her brother, Who, according to her description was a modern Don
Juan, the brother arrived in the person of Keith Corey. Gales of laugh-
ter greeted his arrival as he made his appearance in a ridiculous sailor

DEBATE AND ORATORY
The debate and oratory program this year
has had three phases of special significance.
The traditional formal debate Was held with
Fillmore, Moorpark, Ventura, and Santa Paula
competing. Moorpark Won the county cham-
pionship. The subject debated Was: "Resolved,
That all foreign control should be Withdrawn
from China." Edith Frei and Virgie Holt up-
held the negative for Ventura, While George
Fitch and Leonard Fulbright debated for the
The informal debate was the second
phase of the year's program. This program was
in the form of high school forum. The first
meeting Was held in Fillmore, With the Fill-
more group acting as host to all the schools
of the county. The host presented affirmatively the newly
merit system of Fillmore High School. All the visiting
sidered the case negatively providing for discussion as Well as interest.
Oxnard entertained next With a presentation of the case for more
equality between athletics and academic activities. The third meeting
was conducted at the Ojai Women's Club, the Ojai high school group
leading the discussion. Their topic was that athletic activities should be
limited to those students who are doing passing work in four subjects.
INFORMAL DEBATE TEAM
The last informal gathering was in the Music Room at Ventura
High School. For this program Wanda Hayden was general chairman and
presiding chairman. Virgie Holt was chairman of the reception com-
mittee, which also handled the refreshments. At this meeting the af-
firmative side of the Briand-Kellogg peace pact was supported by Edith
Frei, George Fitch, and Fred Smallwood.
The oratorical feature
for the year was cen-
tered in the Interna-
tional Constitutional con-
test, sponsored by the
Los Angeles Times. Wil-
liam Hendrickson won
the contest in this high
school and represented
Ventura in the county
finals. The title of his
oration was "Our Duty
Under the Constitu-
tion." He gave his ora-
tion before six public
meetings before he en-
tered the finals at Simi
on April 12. He did not
place in this contest but
he gained experience
that should speak well
for him next year.
On April 24, in answer
to an invitation by our
director, W. Fred New-
comb, Philip Shipley, of
Santa Paula, winner of
the county finals, de-
livered his oration be-
fore the student body of
Ventura High School.
As La Revista goes to
press, plans are being
made for the entry of
Ventura in a declamation contest sponsored by Redlands University.
W. Fred Newcomb, teacher of'American history, civics, sociology
and Junior College instructor, had been director of this activity, which
has enlisted the efforts and interest of about twenty students. The
year's program has included three assembly programs-one formal de-
bate, and two of oratorical nature. The credit for the year's success
may be largely attributed to Mr. Newcomb, whose ability to make friends
with his students has endeared him to all who have worked with him.

The Old Woman of San Nicholas
sun was already high in the heavens, a furious wind
raged, and the angry waves beat like a slave driver's
lash against the sandy shore. The little schooner of
Captain Sparks lay in the spit of San Nicholas, and the
harrassed Captain himself, to whom had been en-
' trusted the not too pleasant task of herding the few
T WAS early morning on the island of San Nicholas. The
remaining San Nicholas Indians on board his ship and
transporting them to the mainland, was anxiously watching the ever-
increasing gale that swept the sea and the lonely island. A few moments
later he gave the order to sail. As his men were busily making the final
preparations, a scream was heard that pierced the murmur of the waves
and re-echoed in the Caverns of San Nicholas. Captain Sparks beheld a
young woman who seemed frenzied, straining to get away from the
soldiers who held her back. Angrily asking the cause for this disturbance
he was told that the woman was the mother of a little boy, who through
some oversight, had been left behind.
Now Captain Sparks was a rough man whose nature was remarkably
unsuited to understand and sympathize with a mother's heart. He had
had a great deal of trouble getting the Indians aboard and he suspected
that this young woman had left some trinket behind which she wanted
and for which she had found this excuse to return. First and foremost
in his mind was the fact that if he waited even ten minutes longer he
would be caught in a storm that would imperil all their lives. Therefore
he shouted: "Rubbish! Put to seali' and the Better Than Nothing slowly
moved away from the island.
But the Indian woman whose child had been left behind was not
silenced so easily. She rushed to the side of the boat, looked down into
the swirling, cold, green water, and, closing her eyes, jumped into it and
fought her way back to that cave-infested, wind-gnawed shore.
Page One Hundred One
They watched her as she climbed up the bank, exhausted-the silent,
immovable Indians, the dumbfounded Mexican soldiers and sailors, and
the angry Captain Sparks, whose conscience surely must have given some
uncomfortable twinges. ,But orders to sail had been given and there was
no turning back.
In the mcintime the woman was fast disappearing up the beach.
Wet through, with drops of water glistening on her heavy black braids
and tears streaming down her cheeks she began her hurried hunt for the
child who was not hard to find.
Never for a moment did she suspect that they would leave her be-
hind. Taking the boy hurriedly in her arms she rushed back to the
beach, only to behold the Better Than Nothing, swiftly driven by the
winds, already far out at sea.
For many minutes she could not realize what had happened.
Stunned, too surprised even to be frightened, she simply stared and
stared at the departing schooner. It was the terrified screaming of the
child which finally brought her back to her senses. Then she sat down
heavily on the sand, sobbing as if her heart would break, calling fran-
tically, uselessly, the names of those who had left her behind, and scream-
ing despairing prayers to her island gods. "Manequauna! Manequauna!
Manequauna! Perhaps it was a cry for help, perhaps a beseeching
prayer, perhaps it only meant goodbye-at any rate only the winds
answered her, the whistling, angry winds and the sullen roar of the sea.
The Better Than Nothing was very soon afterwards lost at sea. One
wonders if that last despairing cry flung after it could have been a curse.
How many hours she sat there on the beach, watching the Better
Than Nothing recede into the distance until it disappeared altogether, she
never knew. As yet she had not felt anger, only fear, a surpassing fear
that made her helpless.
It was the hungry child that roused her, and only instinct that led
her back into the island where her poor home had been. For weeks she
lived only for the child, finding roots and fish that they might eat, and
feeling a delicious comfort in the fact that another's voice beside her own
rose over the incessant roar of the winds. For the little boy meant not
only some one to love and to care for and to work for, but sanity itself.
,As the days went on an unceasing hate came over her for all man-
kind. She did not define this feeling, but simply knew that she did not
wish to see men, for they made her almost physically ill. Instinctively,
like a wild animal, she hid from the other hunters that occasionally came
to the island. Her desire to follow her people to the mainland diminished
until she was roused again by the death of her son.
For days the little boy, with whose laughter the island had rung
many a time, and whose carefree chatter was the only thing that could
bring the ghost of a smile to his mother's bitter lips, lay in a stupor,
ravaged by some mysterious illness which his mother could not conquer.
Page One Hundred Two
She watched over him night and day, no longer hearing the wind or the
sea, careless of sand and storm, with her whole soul in her eyes.
The night before he died, the furies of the storm were raging out-
side. The wind whipped around the poor little hut with demoniacal
laughter. Enormous waves dashed against the island with maddening
regularity and the rain fell down in piercing silver sheets. To the angry
elements the Lost Woman was supremely unconscious. With tear-
reddened eyes she watched the irregular, gasping breath of her child.
Her little boy who would never again defy the sea with his baby hands
or wind his arms about her neck and kiss the tears away.
In the grey hour before dawn, when she at last realized that death
had come, he had in truth been dead for many hours. Her little boy! So
beautiful, so strong, so loving! Her first heart-broken moan was answered
only by the satirical shrieks of the winds and that silenced her. Never
again now would she hear the baby voice speaking to her, comforting
herg never again would a human hand other than her own caress her
cheek, never again would soft, baby lips be pressed to hers. Only the
sea would reply to her wailing, only the wind would touch her cheek with
its doubtful, ghostly tenderness.
From that day on the Lost Woman of San Nicholas was never quite
sane. When otter-hunters came to the island she hid from them in one
of her caves, uttering all the while screams of blood-curdling laughter
which they firmly believed were the shrieks of the demon of the wind.
The winds and the sea had become her friends as well as her enemies.
To them she coniided her desperate longing and loneliness. Men were
murderers who had killed her little boy. In her time of sorest need it
was the wind and the wind alone that had been there to comfort her-
it was the sea alone that had mingled its murmur with her moans.
Twenty years is a long time in which to think over one's misfor-
tune, in which to be alone with a great sorrow, in which never to hear
a human voice. Even sorrow can become a friend and thus it was with
the Lost Woman. It seemed to her, when she sat beside the little grave
she had dug herself, as if some shrouded spirit sat near her, the ghost
of her own sorrow, perhaps, and kept her company through her endless
Twenty years, creeping on, silently, endlessly, changelessly, passed
over the Island of San Nicholas and the Lost Woman. To the world she
had become a legend, and her life must have seemed unreal even to her.
could not visualize what any other life would be like. When, one morn-
ing, she beheld a schooner anchored near the island her first impulse was
to hide, and she hurried to the cave of her ancestors, where traces of
prehistoric inhabitants of the island were still in evidence. Here she hid
studying the sands and the sea, mumbling sometimes to herself.
The searchers, for the new arrival was Captain Nidever, sent by
Padre Gonzales of the Mission Santa Barbara on his first searching trip
She had never longed to go to the mainland. Born on the island, she
Page One Hundred Three
for the Lost Woman of San Nicholas, ransacked the island and departed
again, never knowing that the object of their search stood on a rock
watching their departure, and mingling her bitter laughter with the
ghostly one of the island.
Nidever, however, was persistent, and once more the Lost Woman
had to find refuge in her crumbling cave. Again the ship departed, not
to return for many a day. And when it did come it caught the Lost
Woman unawares. Perhaps the heartbreak of years had made her
careless, perhaps it no longer mattered whether she was lost or found,
at any rate Nidever and his men found her sitting with her faithful dog
on the sunny, wind-swept hillside.
Nidever was afraid she would 'scratch and bite' and he was fol-
lowed by an impressive array of Mexican soldiers to protect him from
her. The uselessness of this was laughable. Immediately the Lost
Woman realized she had been captured and accompanied Nidever without
demur. For a month Nidever studied her life, her pitiful little efforts
to build a home out of that wilderness of wind and sand. Everywhere
were traces of her kindness of heart. She had even made a screen to
protect a young otter from the sun that it might not hurt its eyes. She
easily adapted herself to their manner of living, and played about like
a child, enjoying the novelty of it all. Time and solitude must have
dulled the sharp pangs of memory and only the winds and the sea could
rouse her sometimes from the childish ways into which she had fallen.
Then an unknown fear surged over her, as if the voices of the elements
were shrieking curses down upon her.
The crossing to the mainland was rough, and she was much af-
frighted by the force of the winds on the open sea. From the beginning
to the end of her short life in civilization many things frightened her.
Men on horseback, loud noises, the clanging of bells and the thousand
and one signs of progress all aroused her terror. When they poured
water over head and called her by a new, mysterious, ugly-sounding
name, she was not only frightened but even resented it.
It is to be wondered if she had hoped to find across the channel,
some dear friend or relative. If so, in this too she was to be disappointed,
for the San Nicholans had long since died, scattered among the other
Indians, an unhappy forsaken tribe, perhaps better extinct.
Oh, for the sound of a human voice! How often this desire must
have tortured her Ain her twenty years of loneliness. Oh, for the touch of
a human hand! And yet, now that she was surrounded by her fellow
men and through the kindness of Captain Nidever, was being given every
comfort, it was for solitude that she longed, the silent loneliness of the
wilderness, the whistle of the wind and the song of the sea, for her lit-
tle island world, and surely, most of all, she must have longed for the
little lonely grave on the side of the hill. Her ears were not used to the
voices of men. She preferred the cry of the west wind and the lullaby
of the sea waves. Her eyes were not used to so much motion and color,
A A 1

and she found herself wishing for the blinding, steady glare of the sun
on the hilltops of San Nicholas, and its golden sheen on the sea.
It must be a terrible thing to be the last of a tribe-to find, you can
say: "I have lived too long!" to know there is not a human being on
earth who understands your language, to have absolutely nothing except
death to look forward to, to have only a vague understanding of that.
Yet, undoubtedly, this was the Lost Womanls experience. When she was
christened she was given the name Juana Maria, and the sailors added
Better Than Nothing in memory of Captain Spark's traitorous little ship.
But one wonders whether the life she lived with its tragic beginning
and tragic end was better than nothing. That is a question that only
Juana Maria herself could ever answer.
At any rate, she had lived too much alone, she had become too much
a part of the winds and sea to be separated from them long, and only
six weeks after she had been brought to the mainland death came-per-
haps in the form of a recompense and to give back to her hungry arms
her little boy.
As the winds sweep over the deserted island today, they carry
in their strong yet tender arms the spirit of Juana Maria Better Than
Nothing. It seems as if the echo of her lonely, heart-broken screams must
wander forever through the crumbling canons, dying and swelling with
the shrieks of the wind. Perhaps the waves trace on the sands the story
of her unhappiness, and the ocean's incessant murmur repeats her dreary
tale to the beasts and birds of San Nicholas. As one looks at those grim
mountains and deserted valleys one almost expects to hear them ring again
tains and deserted valleys one almost expects to hear them ring again
with her frightened voice as she called after the departing Better Than
Nothing: "Manequana! Manequana! Manequanalv
