28 THE TARGET given me, " Robert said, making a low bow. " I have enjoyed making the time gay for ye, laddie, " returned the Prince. MARTHA WEBB. THE GOSUMORE The " Gosumore " was beating alons: the eaves of a wooded island which did not appear on the map, nor had it any population. On the eastern coast was a large jutting rock that was painted white. The " Gosumore " had a very suit- able name, for though small it could cut through the water at a high rate of speed. At this time she was com- ing nicely around the point when she ran into a heavy fog. The rock was white and could not be seen through the fog, but the dark island was vis- ible. Therefore the captain, thinking he was safe, and being in a great hurry, forced on through the fog without a pilot. Soon the inevitable happened, and coming onto the rock with a crash, the " Gosumore " was rammed right through the bulkhead. The captain ordered full speed ahead and then quickly steered for the nearest beach. Now there was a rush for the life- boats. Trying to subdue the crew, the captain got into a free-for-all fight. Rolling over and over one another they pounded and punched. Finally the captain was on top, landing blows on his opponents thick and fast. " Rogers, what is the matter? " said a stern voice. Looking up, Rogers, the " captain, " found himself among pillows, torn sheets, blankets, and a smashed alarm clock. DE FOREST GILMAN. Mrs. Colmore: " What kind of verb is this, strong or weak? " Ray Gilmore: " It ' s neutral. " Elizabeth Woodworth: " Did you notice that noise out there? I looked out and a lady ' s hat blew off. " Miss Ellehorst: " See all those souls (sols) on the line, boys. " Miriam Mack to Natalie Raymond: " Are you the only two children in the family? " Airs. Coleman in German: " Now who can tell me what part of speech ' as ' is in this sentence? " Evelyn Denham: " Oh! that ' s a sim- ile. " Ethel Bonner , going by fire-house: " Oh! look at that nice fire-place. " Mr. Beardsley: " What can the city do to regulate noise? " Lois Brock: " Regulate the roost- ers. " Teddy Michels in German: " King George fell off his saddle while he Avag walking. " Jack Witter, translating German: " I will gladly accompany you, if you will sing a pair of songs. " Clarence Mitchell, don ' t blow your horn, That keeps all your neighbors awake ' till the morn. Why can ' t you sleep like the rest of us do? Instead of emitting that awful moo- moo.

THE TARGET 27 The Prince In the forest of Birkshire in Scot- land, there lived a lad and his grand- father in a small cottage. One day Robert chanced to be sit- ting on the front step, when horses ' hoof-beats sounded a little way off. " Whar ' ar ' ye, Oliver? " came a low voice through the trees. " Here, sir, " was the reply. Then two horsemen came riding through tl e trees, and stopped in front of the cottage. " Know ye whar ' we ar ' , Oliver? " " Nay, sir. These parts ar ' strange to me. " The riders were dressed in hunting garb. Robert thought how big and strong they looked. " Can ve tell us th ' way, laddie, to Birk? " " That I can, " replied Robert. " First ye take th ' path ye see to your left, sir, an ' ga ' until ye come to a small stream. Cross th ' stream an ' take th ' highway. When ye come to th ' cross- roads take th ' one to your right an ' that will lead ye to Birk. " " Thank ye, laddie, " replied the horseman and threw Robert a shilling. Then the two horsemen turned their horses around and started down the path. " Will ye not tarry a moment, sirs? " called Robert after them. " Will ye not tell me whar ' the festival of Birk- shire will be held this year? " " Ah, yay, " returned the first horse- man, " in the town o ' Birk. " " Thank ye, sir. " The horsemen were soon out of sight. Two days later Robert and his grandfather came out of the cottage to start for Birk. Robert had begged so hard to go to the festival that his grandfather had at last consented. They started for Birk on foot, over a dusty stony road. " O, grandfather, wha ' a fine time we shall have at the festival, " cried Robert as they went along the road. " Yay, Robert. ' Twill be very gay a ' th ' festival. " And so they came to Birk and the streets were decorated and the houses. The people were all dressed in their best and walking about. Robert and his grandfather walked in the crowd and enjoyed the excitement. Then trumpets sounded and the trumpeters came marching down the street. After them came a chariot decorated for the festival. In it was a man who Avas tall and dark. " Hurrah! Hurrah! for the Prince! " shouted the people. Robert gazed in astonishment. The man was the horseman who had asked him the way. Before his grond- father could stop him, Robert ran up to the chariot a nd knelt before the Prince. " Rise, my laddie, " said the Prince. Robert obeyed. " Your highness, I am the lad you asked the way of in the forest. Do you not remember me? " " O, yay, lad. Would ye not like to have a merry time on this festal day? Come jump up behind, lad. " " Thank ye, your highness. " When the sun went down Robert did not want to leave the Prince and the gay festival, but he was very sleepy, and at last: " I thank your highness for the gay time ye have

THE TARGET 29 TENNIS NOTES. On April fifteenth we were permit- ted to use the Berkeley Tennis Club courts for doubles. The champions now are: Katherine Burke and Cor- nelia Morris for the Seventh Grade; Elise Houghton and Elizabeth Jenk- ins of the Eighth Grade; Helen Ma- her and Helen Maslin in the Ninth. The school champions have not been determined. Miss Head ' s School challenged us for a doubles match which was played on their courts, Tuesday afternoon, May 9th. Katherine Burke and Cor- nelia Morris met Harriet Parsons and Adrienne Leonard. McKinley ' s rep- resentatives were victorious by a score of 5-7, 6-1, 9-7. The match was a spirited one and we should be pleased to arrange other games next semester. their own grounds. It was very in- teresting and although we were beaten by two points we all had a good time. The score was 16 to 14 but it was the best work of this term. The Seventh and Eighth grade teams have had their regular prac- tices but have held no match games. GIRLS ' BASKET-BALL. On account of interruptions the bas- ketball teams have not accomplished very much. A long-planned for game was finally played with Richmond on TRACK AND FIELD MEET. The second annual interscholastic track and field meet was held on the L niversity oval, Friday, May 12. The bleachers were filled with over a thou- sand spirited rooters whose yells and McKinley ' s band gave a great deal of " pep " to the scene. The meet was under the personal supervision of Mr. Seawright, commissioner of ath- letics in the schools of Berkeley. Hard luck for us Edison beat; but the score was so close it was anybody ' s meet. The result was 78 4 to Edison ' s credit and 77 for McKinley. Students from Garfield, Lincoln, Le Conte, Franklin and Washington also did good work. Jack Melville did espe- cially well, taking the hundred with ease in :10 4-5 and the 220 in :24 1-5.
