As the sun beat down, it cast a drowsy blanket over everything. As I sat thinking, I dozed off to sleep. Strange things began to pass before my mind. I see a baseball park with cheering thousands in the stands and players dashing to and fro. The umpire announces the batteries for the Giants. I hear the names Ricketts and Wilson. Can it be possible? Sure enough the pitcher and catcher are “Les” and “Twinkletop” of high school days, and I see, from the heated conflab they are engaged in, that they get along as well as they used to. Suddenly the cheering ceases and dead silence follows. Nurses are moving noiselessly about in the white operating room. A figure lies upon the table. The great surgeon is performing a dangerous oper- ation. Soon the nervous tension is replaced by one of relief, for Dr. Walfred Dick has again conquered death. Dancers appear and move gracefully across a polished hardwood floor. As 1 look on with interest, I decide that I am looking upon a dancing school. In one corner of the ballroom I find a dancing in- structor. How surprised I am to discover that she is Marie Phelan. Crowds are proclaiming a new actress. Within a great theatre of a city, seated thousands are expectantly waiting for the new show to begin. At the box office the management is turning thousands away. As I see the great electric signs flashing into the night, 1 nearly have a heart attack, for in glowing letters is the name of a famous actress, Lois Taylor. Leaving the theatre I find myself within a science laboratory. I behold a man of science, bent over his work and an assistant at his side. I can tell by his quick breathing that the crisis has come in his experiment. Then he slowly raises his head, a broad smile on his face, lie has another scientific victory. I recognize Lyle Thunen. I am in the midst of a scene of industry. Derricks are swinging and whistles screeching as a great skyscraper thrusts its head into the sky. I marvel at the systematic care with which everything is done. As I meet the officials of the construction job, I almost lose my footing on a steel girder, for the chief engineer is Clarence Jacobsen, himself. I find myself in a great city newspaper building. As I pass through the printing department, the great presses are fairly humming. Then I make my way into another part of the building where I find the editors of the various departments. I find only one woman editor, and great is my surprise to find that she is Nettie Perine, now society editor for the New York Sun.THE CHIPMUNK Page Seventeen I am on the quest for the governor. I have been sent to interview this great personage. I admire the beautiful capitol building as I climb its steps. Soon I am at the governor’s door, and I set myself for the ordeal. The unexpected happens, however, for as I open the door, there sits Betty Fowler, the first woman governor of California. Barely surviving the shock I make my way into the gallery of the senate chamber. Who is this woman in the senatorial body who is now speak- ing.' Who is the silver-tongued orator? Upon inquiry I am surprised to find that it is Marjorie Champ. The scene again changes. I find myself in a lady’s shop. Judging by the number of customers gathered within its doors, it is a mighty popular one. As I watch fashion mannequins modeling coats and gowns, the two proprietors approach. There seems to be something familiar about these two ladies. Sure enough it is La Verne Payne and Vesta Ford, now selling latest creations from Paris in a fashionable New York shop. I am on a college campus. Students pass to and from classes. This must be a girls’ school, for as yet I have not found a single boy upon the grounds. As I enter one of the stately buildings, I peer into a class- room and whom do I see but Evelyn Utz. She has received her college degree and is now a full-fledged college professor. My greatest shock is yet to come for upon visiting the office of the president I find that she is Adelyn Stout. Suddenly I hear someone swear loudly and fervently behind me. I hen Bert exclaims, “Gosh, Hal, these bugs surely do bite! My com- panion is none other than Bert Ricketts. We are in darkest Africa, making a name for ourselves in big game hunting. As we are talking, we are charged by two rhinos and find ourselves looking into their jaws. Then Les punched me in the back, awakening me and saving Bert and I from a terrible death. H. R.

Juanita’s family wandered, as all gipsy families do, forever on and on. Wherever they roved, Juanita, with her tambourine, danced to the wild Hungarian melodies of her brother’s ancient violin. Her mother was dead, but the old grand-mother told fortunes, while the father passed the hat. A carefree life is a happy life, and gipsy life is carefree. When one is happy, one finds time to sing, to love, and to be beautiful. Juanita was beautiful. The tawny skin and raven hair of Hungarian plains were hers, enhanced by shining teeth, and great black eyes. A drizzling rain was falling as the little group plodded, about dusk, into a small mid-western town. They were hungry, tired, and dirty, and a gipsy is never too welcome. There could be no dancing tonight, and there was little money in their pockets. “Perhaps”, said old Pedro, the father, “we can beg a little food. We no can buy it without the mon, and we no can dance tonight.” With that he left the camp. That was the last seen of old Pedro. Next morning all was bright and sunny except three gipsy hearts. They were hungry, and old Pedro had not returned. “I will hunt for him,” volunteered Carlo, Juanita’s handsome brother. “Oh, Carlo,” cried Juanita, “do find him, and, yourself, do not disappear. Do bring us some food”. At that Carlo also left the camp. He was gone for hours, nor had he yet returned when, toward noon, a band of irate people came upon them unexpectedly and carried Juanita and her grand-mother off to a dirty, smelly jail. Hearing a great racket outside and the cries of many people, “Lynch them! Lynch them!” Juanita asked the jailor who it was they wished to lynch. “You, Scum of the Earth.” On being asked why, he replied angrily. “For killing old Doc Benson last night. Don’t try to be so in- nocent.” “Killing---------------” Juanita stopped. She could not realize what had happened. After a long while she again spoke to the jailor. “And my father, where is he?” “Your father? What the..... do you think I know about your old man? Shut up. Don’t talk to me anymore.” On going to the little village near which they were staying, old Pedro was forced to go through muddy country lanes. In the pitch black of a field near by, he saw a figure hurriedly passing from one sheltering fence post to another. Being by instinct a curious person, he left the road and followed this suspicious creature. The man, for Pedro was now convinced that it was a man, slinked from post to postPage Twenty-six THE CHIPMUNK and later from tree to tree as he reached a thinly wooded area. Pedro noticed that he carried a small satchel which seemed to be quite heavy. The rain had stopped hours ago. Just as the first faint grey light of dawn shone over the distant hills they came to an old, apparently deserted cabin. The man entered, and Pedro crept to a window. The man, whom Pedro noticed to be moving his lips as though talking to himself, lifted a board in the floor and drew out a bag, the contents of which he poured on to the rickety table. The money, for money it was, he greedily counted. Pedro listened carefully and heard the man say. “Ten thousand dollars. Now for this.” He opened the small black satchel, on which were printed in large gold letters, the words, “Samuel Benson, M. D.” Old Pedro, by this time, was very hungry, and daylight had brok- en the spell of the night. Following the footsteps, he reached the road and started for the camp to tell what had happened before he went to town. Perhaps Juanita could dance now so he would not have to beg. When he reached the camp, he found it deserted, and in the soft mud were the footprints of many people. He searched and called, but no one appeared, so he started to town, running as best he could. The first person he saw was a woman with a small child. He asked if she had seen any of the little group, but she simply gathered the child in her arms and ran away. Soon a group of men grabbed him and threw him into jail. The day of the trial finally arrived. The little family, long since thrown into the same cell, were one after the other taken to the wit- ness stand. Old Pedro was last. When he had told his story, the people were of the mind that he lied, and believed him guilty of the murder. “Kill him! Kill him! He killed Doctor Benson.” Pedro’s lawyer was a young man, just admitted to the bar. He finally convinced the judge that it would be only fair to see if what Pedro told were true, and that if the rest of the band were left in jail there would be little chance for his escape. Pedro, well guarded with both lawyers and the judge at his side and the jury at his heels, quickly led the way to the cabin. Upon enter- ing, the man was found in bed. With no explanation, Pedro went to the loose board and removed money bag, and satchel. Then he again told how he had stood outside in the drizzling rain and watched. When hard pressed, the thief admitted having murdered Doctor Benson and was promptly hanged on the nearest tree. Such is the course of the law. Old Pedro was given a reward of five thousand dollars, and he was asked to stay in the village. We are told by old witnesses that later the handsome young lawyer wooed and wed the black-eyed Juanita, but that is another story. Faith Mullen ’30.THE CHIPMUNK Page Twenty-seven PRIZE JUNIOR HTGH SCHOOL STORY A FAMILY MYSTERY (As told by a chimney) Here I stand alone except for another chimney. I will tell you a story about a family I once knew. Four years ago a family dwelt in this house. They were the hap- piest family I ever met, but that isn’t my story. Dick came home from school and flashed a beautiful diamond in front of Nell’s eyes. “Oh!” said Nell, “Where did you get it?” “I slipped it off from Lester Van Dyke’s finger while he was studying, and he didn’t know it,” replied Dick. ou had better let me take it and keep it for you; I’m afraid you’ll lose it,” said Nell. Dick laughed and replied, “Don’t worry, Nell; I won’t lose it.” Dick was building a fire, and the ring slipped off from his finger. He looked everywhere for the ring. I saw the ring. It was under one of the bricks that formed my base. I tried to tell them, but they only thought it was the wind whist- ling down the chimney. Carpenters were called and boards were torn up, but the ring was not found. Lester Van Dyke was not so engrossed in his studies as Dick thought. He had seen Dick slip the ring off from his finger. When Dick told him he had lost the ring, Lester was furious. He told Dick that he would keep it quiet and no one should know if he would pay Lester seven hundred dollars. Lester did not tell the truth. Dick was shunned by all his friends. It was told that Dick had stolen the ring and sold it. Dick went away and worked to pay it back. He now has it all paid. But this did not make up for the three and a half years of misery nor for the loss of his good name. I heard Nell say she was going to be here, when I had grown old and ready to fall down. I see her coming. I am leaving. It does not worry me as I am dying for a good cause. Nell sees the ring. She has it. I am going. Goodbye. I might add that Dick took the ring back to Lester Van Dyke. He paid Dick back in full and gave him the most of his good name back. Lenora Sorrells '32. DUTY TO THE TEAM It was in the football game between Annapolis and West Point. The score stood at five to three in favor of Annapolis.Pajre Twenty-eijrht THE CHIPMUNK There was a young, first-class man on the team who was not on it for his pleasure. The others didn’t know anything about him but that he was honest and all for West Point. After the coach had cheered the team just before the last quarter, they went on the field. “Signals!” The ball was passed. Down the field went Williams, right beside the man with the ball. A man on the An- napolis team got the man with the ball, but just before he went down, he passed it to Williams. This changed things a bit. Ahead of Williams was the enemy. His head swam and his heart was sick. He couldn’t make it! But he must! Through the line he plunged! He felt a sharp pain in his neck, the field turned around and around, but he didn’t go down. He cleared the line. He was staggering, but he went as fast as he could for the goal- post. Slower and slow'er he went. Every muscle was protesting, and the other team was right behind him. After what seemed a long time he saw a white and black post on each side of him, fell on the ball, and knew no more. When he opened his eyes, he was surrounded by twenty-one fel- lows in football uniform and many others who were not in uniform. A young man in white was talking to the coach, who stood near, and said, “He’s a gritty little chap! When a man with a twisted neck will make a record run like that, there’s more to him than you think Williams grinned and said, “Say, Doc, I had to do it.” Russell Hutchinson ’31. FOOTBALL Can you hear the thumping ball, and big bodies’ thudding fall As they pound that hundred yards of fierce-fought turf— Feel the dull ache of defeat, taste the wine of vict’ry sweet, As they surge, retreat, and batter like the surf? Like to those who held the pass under stern Leonidas, Are the teams which fight against unequal odds— As upon a battlefield, swift to charge and slow to yield, While the outcome’s on the knees of grinning gods. Ah, youth! Oh, ecstasy and thrills! The cheering rises to the hills, When an unexpected touchdown turns the game— With mingled brains and brawn these lads fight till strength is gone: Here’s high strategy and drama; here is fame! Coaches, players, rooters, friends know uncertainty that rends As the precious moment swiftly tick away; From the agonized suspense, and unbridled vehemence, It’s a limp, exhausted throng that leaves the fray. Anonymous.THE CHIPMUNK Page Twenty-nine A NIGHTMARE Jane sat in the living room, moodily staring into the fire which cheerfully burned in the huge red brick fireplace. What shall I do?” she mused, growing more despondent than ever, as she reflected on the previous departure of her family to spend the day with a relative. “Of course”, she ejaculated with a fresh outburst of indignation, “it had to be I that remained at home, and today of all days!” “To be sure,” she hesitatingly admitted to herself, “there are my lessons, hateful things, which I ought to do—but, and she dwindled off into the series of mumbling statements, and continued her distracted gaze. Suddenly Jane straightened. Was it possible? “No, I'm only dreaming,” she breathed. She looked again, and there, standing atop of a burning coal, was a queer little man dressed in a flaming red suit. “Follow me,” were his only words, and before Jane was fully aware of this strange experience, she found herself following this un- known personage throughout winding halls, which appeared to her as part of an immense castle. Presently the couple approached a small room, but before either of them were able to gain entrance, there emerged from the door, a tall, thin, shallow-faced, uninteresting individual dressed in a fashionable black suit of evening clothes. Suddenly, he saw Jane, and with a long, accusing finger, he point- ed at her and screeched in a clear distinct voice, “Oh-ho-young lady. So you have been neglecting me lately. Oh what won’t I do! Oh!”—and he ended with a dismal wail. So astonished was Jane, that she remain- ed speechless, eyeing the stranger with an uncontrollable fear. Presently her eyes noted that the word “English” was written in bold white letters across the front of a large black derby worn by this strange personage. At this point Jane’s observation was interrupted by the appearance of three more such beings, labeled “Algebra”, “Spanish”, and “History.” It grew suddenly dim, except for a flickering light now and then, which only tended to increase the fear of poor Jane. Soon she was aware that grimacing faces were peering at her throughout the im- pending gloom. With a screach of terror, June turned to flee from these joykillers, and found herself going down, down and down to unknown depths. Desperately, she attempted to stop her fatal flight, but to no avail, for suddenly she landed with a terific crash on the brown rug in front of the fireplace. Sleepily, she rubbed her eyes. Why—where were those gruesome figures, English, Algebra, Spanish and History? Gone? Oh no, there they were, all four, peacefully lying on the library table, waiting to be mastered.

I never was a poet, nor ever will be, likely— And as the sunny days go by I think of things Pd like to write But all I do is sit and sigh— Perhaps Pll write some by and by— But now as through my nature springs Like fire, an urge to write these things, When I get a pencil in my hand— Thoughts leap right out and run away— Who wants to be a poet anyway? Faith Mullen ’30. A FIRST CLASS CANDIDATE FOR NAPA James Murray had always had a reputation as a sort of “half cracked individual,” ever since that day in nineteen hundred and thirty when he came walking into the living room of the boarding house, into which he has just moved, on his hands, shouting: “Long live Abe Lincoln.” Now Oliver Scotesly, a very optimistic young man residing in a neighboring boarding-house, was very curious about Mr. Murray and, not taking much stock in the stories that had been circulated about James, decided to see for himself. Besides being young, good-looking, optimistic and curious, Oliver Scotesly was lucky, exceedingly lucky. He chose a night to spy upon Mr. Murray, and, as it happened, everybody in the house he was interested in left, excepting James Murray. Oliver stalked up to the house at eight-thirty, on the selfappoint- ed evening. He opened the door cautiously and stepped into the living room. The last strains of some idiotic orchestra piece were just dying away. James was sitting in an easy-chair, staring into the fireplace, in which a merry, dancing blaze cracked. The room was dimly lighted, so Oliver sat down on the floor be- hind the center table, near James. Mr. Murray’s gaze began to rove after a while. He looked at the models and vases on the mantel-piece, then at his none-too-clean suit. His eyes finally fell and his gaze rested on his scuffed, well used, and unshined shoes.THE CHIPMUNK Page Thirty-one Then an idea seemed to come into his head, for he stood up, clapped his hands together and began to talk. By Jove, I have it! I have an idea! Won’t the boss pat me on the back when he sees the results of it, though? “ 1 hat’s a pippin of an idea. I’ll have to write it down, however.” So saying, he dug up a pencil and paper and scribbled something on it. Then he rushed out of the room. “That fellow has nothing wrong with him. . . The other people just shun him so that, in his friendless life, he has developed a complex tor talking to himself and they think he’s crazy. . . I’ll bet he has a good idea for some invention or an improvement on something.” This is what ran through Mr. Scotesly’s mind as he sat on the living room floor, all alone. After two or three minutes waiting, Oliver saw Mr. Murray re- enter the living room with a small, round, tin box in his hand. It looked very much like a girl’s compact. He rushed out again, returning with a small cloth. “What the dickens is he going to do now?” Oliver questioned him- self in his mind. “Well, wait and see.” James was talking to himself all this time about his idea and his boss, although he never mentioned his inspiration. Mr. Murray opened his small round box revealing some black, dull substance. “This will knock the boss for a carload of cream-puffs,” Mr. Murray said. He began to sing. “I’ve got the idea, I’ve got the idea, Oh, what an idea, Oh, what an idea, It’s got a prospect, you’d walk a mile to see.” “Yes, sir, I’ll have to congratulate myself on this. I’m going to shine my shoes.” “Caramba!” exclaimed Oliver, as he rushed out the door. Never did he come near Mr. Murray again. Vernon Newton ’29 WHEN A FELLOW NEEDS A FRIEND I remember reading that: “A wise man keeps his friendship in constant repair. It is like a beautiful plant, and if you neglect it, and have it forgotten it will die.” This is more than true. Some will say that a friend is needed when one is in difficult trouble, or sick, or poor. But I believe that friends are always needed. For a friend is one of the best things one can have in life—better than money, very often. For there are times when sympathy and understand- ing counts for more than any thing else. I heard some one read or say—“A friend is like a good coat that can be worn in all weather.” I have had such a friend but not such a coat.Page Thirty-two THE CHIPMUNK There is a great difference between friends and real true friends. A real friend is with you in sunshine or in rain, or in other words when you are happy or sad, when in or out of trouble. These “fair weather friends” that evaporate when you are down on your luck, are worse, I think, than an out and out enemy. Without friends one couldn’t do just ordinary, common every day, duties. The average person must have friends to be the least bit happy and ones that do not are strange indeed. Marie Phelan ’28. WE NOMINATE FOR THE HALL OF FAME Mr. FLETCHER L.

THE JUNIOR AND SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL ORCHESTRAS The Junior and Senior High School Orchestras have practiced separately this year, and most of the time has been devoted to organiza- tion. Because of this very few public programs have been given by the combined orchestras. Three very creditable performances were given during the year, one for our High School assembly in October and the remaining two at Open House and Graduation. Two members of the Orchestras deserve special mention. Bob Gleason and Ellsworth Seammon, in as much as they have played solos for our school programs and for the Forums given in the Legion Hall.Page Thirty-six THE CHIPMUNK CHORAL Although this year’s Girls’ and Boys’ Glee Clubs have not been as large as those of last term, still all of their public appearances both on school and town programs have been very successful and of a quali- ty to make us proud of them. 1 heir first public appearance was on the program in celebration of Armistice Day, November 11, at the American Legion Hall, at which time Professor Calhoun of the University of California spoke on “Free- dom and Patriotism.” When Dean Cadman of the University of California lectured on “International Understanding,” Friday February 3, the ninth grade girls choral class sang two songs. The Senior High School Boys’ and Girls’ choral classes sang again at the benefit program at the Westwood Theatre on February 23, sponsored by the Parent Teachers Association. The girls wore Chinese costumes, which fitted in well with the songs they sang and the picture, “Shanghai Bound.” The Senior High School girls appeared again on February 25th, at the Girls Scout Dance and sang the same songs that were sung at the Parent Teachers Association Program. At the Open House Program April 20, the Girls’ and Boys’ Glee Clubs sang again. Two songs were sung by the boys. The girls appear- ed in overalls when they sang their two numbers. At the Forest Prevention week Program the Senior High School Girls’ Glee Club sang “Trees,” a musical version of the poem by Joyce Kilmer; which was very appropriate for the occasion. The Senior High School Boys’ and Girls’ Glee Club will appear for the last time this year at Commencement. The girls will sing, “Trees” by Joyce Kilmer. “Come down to Kew” and “To A Wild Rose,” by Mac- Dowell. The boys will sing, “The Song of Man”, by Alfred Noyes, “Cabellero” by Earl Deis. ASSEMBLY PROGRAM During the months of September and October all the programs were confined to foot ball and basket ball rallies. It was difficult to put on a good program due to the fact that we had no assembly hall. At each of the assembly programs a student acted as chairman. At the Armistice day program, November 11 Vernon Newton acted as chairman.THE CHIPMUNK Page Thirty-seven The program was as follows: Pippa Passes—Senior High Girls’ Glee Club. The Call of the Gypsy Trail-Senior High Boys’ Girls’ Glee Club. I hear the Bee’s are Humming-Senior High Boys’ Girls’ Glee Club. Article by Madame Schumann Heinck—Lois Taylor. Recitation—“In the Midst of Them”—Donalda Felion. Reading—“In Flanders Field”—Fred Atkins. Selection—Junior and Senior High School Orchestra. The Christmas Program was held on December 21. Donalda Felion acted as chairman. A pantomine, “The Nativity,” was given by the Junior and Senior High School Students, directed by Mrs. Jayne. The Christmas Carols were sung by the Senior High School Girls’ Glee Club. The Junior High School Washington and Lincoln Program waa held February 21. “Washington” and “America for Me” was sung by the Ninth Grade Girls’ Glee Club. Russell Hutchinson gave a short talk. Mary Lorda gave a reading. The Washington and Lincoln program was given by the Senior High School on February 22. Lois Taylor acted as chairman. Two songs—“Washington” and “America for Me” were sung by the Senior High Girls’ Glee Club. There were two readings by members of the Oral English Class. “Lincoln a Man of the People” by Fred Atkins and “O! Captain, My Captain” by Eva Cyr. The biggest program of the year was that held on Open House Night, April 20. Every student in the High School worked to make this program a success. It was the first program in the new Auditorium of which we are so proud. OPEN HOUSE The plan to combine Exhibition Night and the Dedication of our New High School building was carried out on the evening of April 20. Exhibits of the Science, Household and Manual Arts, Spanish, Mechanical Drawing, and Music Departments were well attended by the parents and other townspeople, and showed to a very marked de- gree the progress of the students in acquiring knowledge. Beginning at eight o’clock, some of the various other departments rendered a program in the new Auditorium, consisting of the following numbers:Page Thirty-eight THE CHIPMUNK 1. Address of welcome—Lois Taylor, chairman. 2. Two selections by the Junior and Senior High School Or- chestras. 3. Appreciation by Gordon Boyd. 4. Irish Lilt—Folk Dance by Junior High Girls: Maxine Gilbert Gertrude Costar, Carlie Fowler, Florence Allen, Lucille Bergstrom, Vera Mote. 5.

The program was as follows: A song, “Trees”—Senior High Girls’ Glee Club. Forestry—Gordon Boyd. Conservation of Forests—Evelyn Cyr. Rules for Fire Prevention—Bert Ricketts.Page Forty THE CHIPMUNK mi£j octal v The first party of the school year was held in the Grammar School gymnasium on Saturday, October 29, in honor of the Modoc and West- wood football teams. The hall was prettily decorated with autumn leaves. Dancing lasted until twelve o’clock. Punch and wafers were served during the evening. The Junior High held its first party on the twenty-ninth of Octo- ber in the Grammar School gymnasium. The gymnasium was effective- ly decorated in Halloween colors. A number of Halloween games were played during the evening, dancing followed, At nine-thirty dainty re- freshments were served, and at ten o’clock the guests departed for home declaring that they had had a very enjoyable evening. On Tuesday evening, November 15, a group of girls from the senior high school gave a dinner for the football team at the Masonic Hall. The table was cleverly decorated to represent a football field, having goal posts at each end and a miniature team in the center.THE CHIPMUNK Page Forty-one The boys all declared they enjoyed it immensely, and we have been given to understand that Coach Lawrence is still talking about the delicious chicken served. On Friday, December 9, the junior and sophomore classes gave a delightful party to the seniors and the freshmen. The evening was spent in dancing, after which pumpkin pie and apple cider were served. Saturday, January 14, from nine in the morning until four in the afternoon, was set aside for Faculty Labor Day to panel the two science rooms, under the direction of Mr. Browne. Luncheon was served at noon by a few of the “gentler” members of the faculty. Professor Herbert Priestly of the University of Cali- fornia was the guest of honor and graciously consented to act in the capacity of visiting inspector. We hear that there was surprisingly few casualties in view of the lack of previous training on the part of the members of the crew. A big bonfire rally was held on the high school atheletic field on the evening of January 19, before the boys’ basketball team played Alturas. At the opening of the rally the different classes serpentined around the field carrying torches and their class banners. Bert opened the program with a few yells, after which the team was presented and Coach Lawrence spoke. Later, the girls’ basketball team was pres- ented and Miss Bloxham spoke. At the conclusion of the program each member of the faculty present was called upon to mount the stump, which served as the of- ficial platform for the various speakers, and say a few words. Mr. Browne confessed himself “stumped” for want of anything to say, however, when his turn came. The rally was one of the peppiest events of the year. Friday evening, January 20, after the Modoc basket ball games, the high school gave a dance in the Auditorium. The visiting teams were our guests. Supper was served after the dance. The evening of January 21, the Junior High School students en- joyed a Hard Time party in the Grammar School gymnasium. The stu- dents found their partners for the evening by the mating of cards which were torn in half. Between the dances games were played, and as a pleasing close for the evening, refreshments were served. One of the biggest social events for the year, of course, was the party Mr. Walker gave us on Friday night, February 24, at the Audi- torium in honor of the boys who, through their work on crew, helped panel the inside of our school.Page Forty-two THE CHIPMUNK The revelry began promptly at eight. A snappy five-piece orches- tra furnished the music for the dancing. Games were provided for those who did not care to dance. At eleven o’clock we left the Anditorium for the Cafeteria where Mr. Walker had had a big supper prepared for us. We all left the Cafeteria feeling very contented and very grateful to Mr. Walker for such a delightful evening. On Friday evening. March 2, the Juniors had their class party at the Grammar School gymnasium. The first two hours of the evening were spent in playing “Potato Bug”, and the remainder in dancing. Punch and wafers were served throughout the evening. The hall was prettily decorated with balloons of the class colors, purple and gold. The Seniors chose the evening of St. Patrick’s Day for their class party. It was held at the Masonic Hall. Between dances relay races and hurdle events were held. The contestants in the first had to thread a needle before the next person on their side could run, and those in the second had to take hurdles carrying a spoon filled with beans. All day suckers were given out to members of the winning team. Another novel feature of the evening was a contest held to de- termine who of the guests possessed the largest feet. Miss Carmichael was an easy winner, we regret to admit. Pistachio ice cream and cake were served at the conclusion of the evening. SENIOR SNEAK DAY On May 9, the Seniors took a day off. About four o’clock that morning the wide-awake Juniors were ready to stop the Sneakers. They managed to get away with the refreshments, but after a little battle the Seniors recovered them and went on their way to Yellow Creek and had a good time without any more interference. JUNIOR CLASS PICNIC On Thursday, May 10, at 3:00 P. M. the Juniors started for “Last Chance” on a picnic and upon arriving baseball was played until the call for dinner was sounded. During this game Miss Hart proved her- self an A-l Baseball player. Refreshments consisted of roasted weenies with buns, and we finished up with toasting marshmallows. After a little game of Barnyard golf, which lasted until about 7 o’clock, we started for home.THE CHIPMUNK Page Forty-three Everyone enjoyed themselves, but we would have been more com- fortable if there hadn’t been so many mosquitoes. JUNIOR-SENIOR BANQUET The Juniors gave a delightful banquet to the Seniors on Thursday evening, May 16. The color scheme was effectively carried out with the Junior Class colors, purple and gold. Lilacs served as table decorations. This banquet was cleverly worked out on the plan of a Cabaret. The dinner was served by several Sophomore girls. The guests started to eat at seven and danced between courses. As this was a school night, dancing was stopped at nine o'clock. Everyone departed for home declaring they had had a very enjoyable evening. On Tuesday. May twenty-second, and Wednesday, May twenty- third, respectively, the Junior High School and Senior High School picinics were held. The former at Clear Creek and the latter at the Gun Club. Games were played at each party, and the Senior High School enjoyed swimming on theirs. Plenty of good eats were to be had at each picnic, all of which miraculously disappeared before the parties ended. We understand there were no casualties, afterwards, however. Rain prevented the sophomores from going to Yellow Creek on their picnic on Monday, May twenty-first. So they decided to have their picnic here at school. Rooms fourteen and fifteen were cleared for the purpose. Eats were served at six-thirty. When the party broke up at seven-thirty, everyone declared they had had as good a time as if they had gone to Yellow Creek. The long-awaited Junior Senior Prom was held in the auditorium here at school on the evening of Friday, May twenty-fifth. The Audi- torium was decorated prettily in the class colors and with greenery. Wayne Carroll’s orchestra played for the dancing from eight until twelve. Punch and wafers were served throughout the evening.Page Forty-four THE CHIPMUNK THE SENIOR GOVERNMENT CLUB The six-year High School with Junior and Senior divisions is a comparatively new type of institution. Establishing this kind of or- ganization in our new building naturally created several problems of school goverment. There were no precedents. The Student Government Club was organized to solve problems of student government, to consider the relations between the Junior and Senior divisions, to represent the Student Body, and to offer an opportunity for student criticism of school affairs. After a few preliminary meetings on Tuesday evenings, it was de- cided that this club would help the School. Officers were elected and regular meetings were held, Friday afternoons. The officers of the Student Government Club are: President, Austin Scott; Vice-President, Clarence Jacobsen; Secretary, Lyle Thunen. The following students were selected as representatives by the Senior Student Body: Gordon Boyd, Eva Cyr, Evelyn Cyr, Walfred Dick, Donalda Felion, Clarence Jacobson, Olympio Mazo, Vernon New- ton, Allan O’Connor, Bert Ricketts, Lester Ricketts, Austin Scott, Lois Taylor, Lyle Thunen, William Watson, Gordon Wilson, Harry Wilson and Marjorie Woolman. Student interest in school affairs has been aroused by the estab- lishing of this Club. Suggestions to the Student Body have been made through the members of the Club. A plan for a new, more appropriate constitution was worked on. It is hoped students will take more interest and an increasing amount of control in school proceedings. THE JUNIOR GOVERNMENT CLUB The Junior Student Government Club was organized March 6th for the purpose of learning better how to systematize student govern- ment. The members of it were chosen by the students and faculty mem- bers of the junior high school on the basis of the following points: good scholarship, leadership, school spirit, sportsmanship, character and active participation in student affairs. Meetings are held once a week in room seven, with a different student in charge for each meeting, and Mr. Cralle acting as faculty advisor. This semester, due to the late organization of the club, little has been accomplished, but it is hoped that next term it may more ade- quately and effectively realize the purpose for which it was organized; namely, service as a clearing house wherein suggestions and criticisms of importance to the life of the school may be made and discussed.THE CHIPMUNK Page Forty-five The following students were chosen as members: Russell Hutchin- son, Gertrude Costar, Ellsworth Scammon, Ruth Reavis, Brenton Dip- pel, Laurence Woods, Mae Dade, Vera Wilson, Franklin Ott, Roy Walker, Myrven Middleton, Lester Duer, La Verne Foster, Fenton Quimby, Mary Lauer, John Lorda, Norma Williams, Celestino Calvo, Victor Myer, Earl Fitch, Laurel Johnson, Aletha Scott, Ross Clark and George Gazarian. HONOR SOCIETY The Westwood Chapter of the California Scholastic Federation was quite small in 1927-28, but smaller the second semester than the first. The purpose of this organization is to encourage higher scholar- ship. In order to do this the President of the club presents the month- ly Scholarship reports. Three graduates were awarded C. S. F. Mem- bership Pins. They were: Lois Taylor, Clarence Jacobsen and Bert Ricketts. The members of this club the last semester were: Donalda Felion, President; Lois Taylor, Sec.-Treasurer; Bert Ricketts, Fern Dixon and Faith Mullen. Miss Johnson was the advisor for the last semester, due to Mrs. Frodsham leaving School.Page Forty-six THE CHIPMUNK ATHLETICSIN APPRECIATION THE CHIPMUNK Page Forty-seven To Mr. Lawrence and Miss Bloxham, the coaches, and Fred Atkins and Lois Taylor, athletic managers, we wish to express our sincere appreciation for the time and cheerful aid they so willingly and gener- ously gave to all of this term’s athletic activities.FOOTBALL TEAM Page Forty-eight THE CHIPMUNK Top Row: Jack Rookaird, Mr. Lawrence, Fred Atkins. Second Row: O’Connor, Gleason, L. Ricketts, Wood. I bird Row: Hull, Miller, Mankins, Koerner, Jenkins, Mollart. Bottom Row: Yorton, Jacobsen, Mazo, Knudsen, Clark, B. Ricketts and Wilson. This year the team started out like a lamb and ended up like a lion. I he team was very light, but what it lacked in weight was made up in fight. October 1st at Westwood Westwood 0 Alturas 38 The fellows were a little too confident that they would win, and so they took a beating that will be well remembered. The playing of Yorton was the most noticeable. The fellows learned where they were making mistakes and profited by it. October 8th at Redding Westwood 0 Redding 13 It was very hot in the valley on October 8th and had some effect on the boys. They all wanted to lie down and sleep, yet they fought like demons. The better playing of Redding won for them that day, although it might be said that they didn’t have things all their own way.THE CHIPMUNK Page Forty-nine October 29th at Alturas Westwood 0 Alturas 38 Again Westwood was defeated. The fellows played 100 per- cent better. Scott, the Westwood center, was in the hospital for four weeksfafter this game. November 5th at Susanville Westwood 12 Susanville 18 This was a very interesting game from beginning to end. Susan- ville scored in the first quarter by bucking the ball down the field. A few minutes later Jake threw a long pass to Yorton who ran over the line for a touchdown. In the second quarter Susanville again scor- ed, making the score 12-6 in her favor. But again Yorton stepped in to intercept a pass and run 50 yards to a touchdown. At the end of the first half the score was 12-12. Susanville scored again in the last quarter, making the score 18-12. WESTWOOD’S “BIG GAME” November 11th at Westwood Westwood 6 Susanville 6 This was the best football game ever played in Westwood, both teams being out for victory. Westwood received the ball and marched straight down the field to a touchdown in the first few minutes of the play and held onto that lead until the third quarter. Here a punt was blocked and it was Susanville’s ball on the Westwood two yard line. Susanville scored but had to take two downs to do it. From there on both teams fought hard but could not win. The Junior High School team played two games with Susanville. They won the first on November 11th by a score of 6-12 and lost the second on November 17th, the score being 6-0. These boys will develop into valuable material. Inter-Class Football—October 13. The Junior-Sophomores played the Senior-Freshmen and were defeated by the score of 12-0.Page Fifty THE CHIPMUNK BOYS’ BASKETBALL Top Row: B. Ricketts, Miller. O’Conner, L. Ricketts, Wood, Jacob- sen, Mollart. Second Row: Fred Atkins, H. Wilson, Mazo, Rosentreter, Man kins, Spring, Gleason, Jack Rookaird. Bottom Row: Dollarhide, Shaw, Dick, Watson, Clark, Jacobs. The showing of the basketball team this season was a disappoint- ment to Westwood supporters, for with four veterans from last year’s squad back to form the nucleus of the quintet, great things were ex- pected. However, several of the boys failed to hit their stride, and the team as the whole was unable to get going. The boys managed to turn back the fast Alumni team in two practice games but were unable to register wins against their high school opponents although several close, fast games resulted. The lightweights after a hard season managed to score the only victory for Westwood when they bested the Susanville midgets, 10-8 in the best game of the season. Les Ricketts, Clarence Jacobsen, and Harold Hull at forward; Laurence Woods at center; Allan O’Connor, Charlie Mollart, and Gor- don Wilson as guards carried the brunt of the work while Don Miller, Bert Ricketts, and Earle Yorton did some good work in relieving the regulars on numerous occasions. For the lightweights, Walfred Dick, Carl Jacobsen, Tony Perry, Jack Dollarhide, Jimmy Shaw, and Willis Jacobs were the outstanding performers with Jack Dollarhide and Carl Jacobsen giving the most promise of developing into future stars.THE CHIPMUNK Page Fifty-one Westwood 11 Westwood 21 Westwood 11 Westwood 27 Westwood 18 Westwood 14 Westwood 11 Westwood 7 11 Evening School 7 Second Team Alumni 13 Adin 17 Alumni 22 Modoc 35 Lassen 34 Modoc 18 Lassen 31 Westwood 5 Westwood 5 Westwood 8 Westwood 10 Lightweights Lassen 12 Lassen 11 Lassen 19 Lassen 8 INTER CLASS BASKET BALL The Senior Class was the victor in its games with the Junior and Sophomore teams, beating the Juniors 19-2 and the Sophomores 20-10. W. H. S. didn’t play baseball last year so that we can’t very well say that any veterans returned. The team has played two games to date, defeating the Susanville second string to the tune of 13-5 in the first and being defeated in the second by Susanville’s first string 18-2. A third game is called for the 19th of May. Gorden Wilson was elected to captain the team. Here the Seniors won the Senior High School league by beating the Juniors 9-7 and the Sophomores 18-7. They also won the school championship by defeating the eighth grade 18-9.

HIGH SCHOOL vs OFFICE The first girls basketball game of the season was played October 29, with the Office, a team composed of most of our last year’s team. Our girls fought hard but were defeated by a score of 12 to 2. LASSEN HI vs WESTWOOD HI The Lassen Hi girls met our team November 4, on the home court. I his game offered plenty of excitement for the enthusiastic rooters Lassen ran up a big score in the first half, but in the last half our girls came back with a lot of fight and were defeated by the small differ- ence of 11 to 13. WESTWOOD HI vs LASSEN HI Westwood Hi met Lassen Hi November 18, on the Lassen court. Though the girls fought hard, Lassen defeated them. The final score was 12 to 19. HIGH SCHOOL vs OFFICE On December 9, the High School met the Office for the second time. Because of the defeat in the first game with these opponents our girls came back with a lot of pep and spirit to win, which they did. 1 he High School kept the lead all through the game and at the end the score was 13 to 4 in our favor.THE CHIPMUNK Page Fifty-three WESTWOOD vs MODOC Westwood and Modoc girls played at Alturas, December 17. The Modoc team defeated our girls because of their remarkable speed. The score was 16 to 33. MODOC vs WESTWOOD Modoc played Westwood at Westwood, January 20. Because of the bad weather all of their players did not arrive. Aleda Knudsen played with Modoc. Modoc defeated our girls by a score of 18 to 6. GIRLS’ INTERCLASS BASKETBALL SOPHOMORES vs JUNIORS AND SENIORS The Sophomores played the first interclass basketball game against a combined Junior-Senior team. The upperclasses were defeated by a score of 7 to 6. JUNIORS vs SENIORS These two teams were quite evenly matched. At the end of the fourth quarter the score was tied. The tie was played off, resulting with the score of 14 to 16 in favor of the Juniors. SOPHOMORES vs SENIORS A fast game was played between the Sophomores and Seniors. The Seniors were again defeated. The score was 15 to 16. FIELD DAY On Friday afternoon, May 18, the six classes of the Westwood Junior-Senior High School marched onto the athletic field to compete in athletic events.

Mrs.Frodsham: (in geometry class) “Now watch the board close- ly while I go through it.” Miss Carmichael: “Fred, how did you acquire such a wonderful voice?” Fred: “From calling hogs.” Miss Carmichael: “Lets hear you call just once.” Fred: “Say, if I let out one holler the whole school would rush in here.” Kid: (to Bob McKeown as he was covering up his Ford) “You needn’t cover it up Mr. I saw what it was.” Fred A.: “Did you hear about that dream that Clarence had?” Harold H.: “No, what was it?” Fred: “Well, he dreamed that he was in Heaven and saw an old man with whiskers standing by a long ladder. The old fellow gave him a piece of chalk and told him to write his sins on the rounds of the ladder. When he was about half way up he met Lester Ricketts coming down for more chalk.” Mr. Drewes: “What would happen if the President should die between the time of his election and the time for him to take office?” Gordon W.: “His funeral.” Mrs. Jayne: “Fred, for playing that harmonica in class you must stay after school for an hour.” Fred puts on a very solemn expression and plays “The Prisoner’s Song.” Miss Parker: “Which is the heavier, a half-moon or a full moon?”Page Sixty THE CHIPMUNK Ninth grade science student: “The half, of course, because the full moon is as light again.” Miss Taylor: “Vesta, do you know that you are going to the bottom of the class?” Vesta: “I don’t care, they teach the same at both ends.” Fred: “I’ve been used to having people treat me like a great gentleman.” Vesta: “Did they discover their mistake?” Barber: (lo Charlie Mollart) “Do you want it cut any special way?” Charlie: “No, just the same way, I guess. You cut it last time didn’t you?” Barber: “No, I’ve only been here a year.” FREE AIR “Will you take gas?” asked the dentist of the absent-minded motorist in the chair. “Yeah,” replied the patient, “And better look at the oil.” Miss Hart (to world history class) : “Imagine this vase is 3000 years old.” Willis J. “That can not be, it’s only 1928 now.” PSALM 23 My math teacher is my shepherd. I shall not want another; She maketh me to study hard examples; She leadth me to close by the bug house. She decayeth my solid ivory; She leadeth me in the path of algebra, for maths sake. ea, though I walk down the aisle, I fear my wooden kimono, for thou ain’t with me. Thy algebraic expressions, they discomfort me. Thou preparest an example before me in the presence of thine enemies. My fountain pen runneth over. Surely, if she shall follow me over all the days of my life, I will dwell in the bug house forever. Inza Cutler 3-29. Adelyn Stout: “My goodness, it’s nearly 7:30 and mother hasn’t called me yet. If she doesn’t hurry up. I’ll be late for school.” Mrs. Frodsham: (To Allen) : “Please don’t ask so many questions.” Allen: “If I don’t ask questions what can I ask?” teacher: “Do you know that a foolish person can ask more ques- tions than a wise person can answer?”THE CHIPMUNK Page Sixty-one Pupil: “Yes. That is why we all flunked in our examinations.” Professor: “These aren’t my own figures I’m quoting. They’re the figures of a man who knows what he is talking about.” Miss Mitchell: (studying Treasure Island) “Why did Dr. Livesy warn John Silver to look out for squalls when he found the treasure?” Roy Walker: “He was afraid someone would squeal on him.” Teacher: (to new pupil) “What is your name?” Pupil: “Dusky Rastus George Washington Napoleon Lincoln Ford Johnson.” Teacher: “Is that all?” Rastus: “Das all a kin recomember.” Jack: “Did you fill your date last night?” Charles: “I’ll say I did and she ate everything in sight.” Winston: “I’ll bet mama will pat me on the back when I take home this report card.” Miss Butcher: “No doubt, but maybe she won’t pat you on the shoulders.” Walfred to Harry while cranking his Ford. “Why don’t you spin it.” Harry: “What do you think it is, a top?” Olympio: “If the President and Vice-President should die, who would get the job?” Gordon: “I dunno.” Olympio: “The Undertaker.” Willis: “Where is the most fish?” Harry: “In the water, you sap.” Willis: “No, between the head and the tail.” Seating Capacity. Allen: “Have you a five passenger Car?” Jenkins: “Yes, but nine can ride in it if they are well acquainted.” Miss Hoffman: “Why are summer days longer than winter days?” Bright Senior: “Because the heat expands them.” Bert Ricketts: “If a man has anything in him there’s nothing like travel to bring it out.” Walfred Dick: “Yes, especially a sea trip.” Mrs. Gardner: (To home economics class) “Girls, there were 3 walnuts in this bowl and now there is only one! How did that happen?” Marie Phelan: “Well my glasses were dirty and I didn’t see the other one.” Yorton: (Entering crowded barber shop) “How long will I have to wait for a shave?” Barber: (Eyeing critically) “About two years I should judge.” Coach Lawrence: “Say waiter, there’s a fly in my coffee!” Waiter: “That don’t matter, he won’t drink much.”THE CHIPMUNK Page Sixty-two PLEASE REPORT “You’re wanted at the office!” To the Freshie, what a blow! The day is spent in trembling At the pain he’ll undergo. “You’re wanted at the office!” And the Sophomore’s conscience pricks, But he conceals with many a grin His thought,—“Pm in some fix.” “You’re wanted at the office!” To the Junior what a joke! I suppose it’s for the many times In Study Hall, I’ve spoke.” “You’re wanted at the office!” To the senior what a bore. “How many times I’ve told them To trouble me no more!” To me these little sketches show The changes in demeanor ’Twixt a humble trembling Freshie And a haughty, blase Senior.
