30 THE TARGET HANDBALL. Tack Melville and Ben Boasburg are handball champions for the season, having defeated Charles Whitworth and Harold Weaver in the finals. BASEBALL. Owing to a late start the McKinley baseball team did not get enough practice and so Avere not as fortunate as usual. The games were played at San Pablo Park where we met the other three Intermediate Schools of Berkeley — Garfield, Edison and Bur- bank. , In the first game with Edison, we were defeated by the score of 9 to 4. Hall and Perkins were the batters for McKinley. The next game, with Garfield, was captured by Garfield, by the score of 5 to 4. Dunn and Perkins were bat- teries of the day, but Dunn went out of the box about the middle of the game, and Hall took his place. Against Burbank. McKinley won the honors, victors by th e score of 11 to 10. Hall and Barnard were the successful batteries. On low per cent for semi-finals, our opponents were from Burbank. Ow- ing to the absence of some players, who were deficient in their studies, we were defeated by the simple score 3 to 2, thus dropping out of the race for the championship. The members of the team were: Frank Hall. John Perkins, Ray Moody, Ed Gove, Dick Dunn, Mor- rill King, Francis Kelsey, Ray Gil- man, Ed Barnard, Oscar Cameron, Ben Boasburg, Donald Goss. THE CHILD WHO BELIEVED Evelyn Dexter strolled into her gar- den one morning wondering whether the stories her father had told her about there being a fairy in every flower were true. First she examined a beautiful pink rose, then a pansy, and next a poppy, but there were no fairies in any of them. . At last, very disappointed, she sat down and looked wonderingly at the pink rose. The petals seemed to move gently. Suddenly there appeared two glittering wings, and within a few sec- onds a real fairy emerged from the flower. " Why didn ' t you show yourself be- fore? " asked Evelyn. " Because at first you doubted your father ' s stories, " replied the fairy. " I waited and rustled the petals just to strengthen your belief. Now, just sit still, and I shall call the other fairies from their flowers. Be very quiet for they are easily frightened, and at the slightest sound they scamper back into their hiding places. " Evelyn nodded, and watched the rose-fairy fly from one one flower to another summoning her companions. The fairies danced, played, and sang while the amazed child gazed on the scene in silence. So enraptured was she that she unconsciously sneezed, and lo! the fairies disappeared. Not even the rose-fairy waited a second to wave good-bye. She sat motionless a min- ute, and then jumped up to tell her mother of the wonderful visit of the flower-fairies. After that experience Evelyn was so sure she had seen the fairies that she never doubted them again. That night she begged her father to tel! her about the moon-fairies hoping they would pay her a visit some night. ERXA ERBE. i

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.

THE TARGET 31 THE KIRMANSHAH. Far off in the Persian country, Iko- bore ,with his beautiful daughter Ary- anibar, lived a solitary life in the des- ert, with no friends for company. Aryanibar was a beautiful rug maker, but she, on attempting to steal a pat- tern of a rug from a peddler, was exiled with her father into the desert. But she still wove rugs and now she was completing a dowry rug of sur- passing beauty and of finest wool. One constant visitor and friend of these people was Akbar, a youth who loved Aryanibar. The rug was now finished and Ikobore said, " Now, my daughter, with this dowry rug you may marry whom you please, but without it, you shall never marry. Name the man, and I will consent. " " With all my heart, dear father, I ask to marry Akbar. " Thus she announced this to Akbur, and the three prepared to go to Bag- dad for the marriage ceremonies. On the way, they stopped at a little town for water and then went on. But lo! and " behold! when they arrived at Bagdad, where was the dowry rug? Aryanibar was inconsolable, and a crowd having gathered about, Ikobore said thus, " Since the rug is lost, you cannot marry Akbar now, but if he or anyone else finds that rug, he may have the hand of my daughter. " Five years later after the incident of the lost rug in Persia, way off in America, Mrs. Jones, a wealthy widow, walked into an oriental rug store, looking for a rug for her living room. She asked the price of this and that, until she spied a handsome one for a thousand dollars. She took this one, and next day found it in her house. Akbar, looking all places for the rug, came one day on an old shrivelled man, and asking him if he had seen or heard of this rug, learned something in his favor. The man said, " Yes, I found a marvelous rug lying in the road, and seeing the value of it at once, I took it to the dealer in Bag- dad. There I received five hundred dollars for it. The dealer said it was a fine article and that he would take it to New York City, in the United States. This is all I know of it. I found it there lyong on the street, it having probably fallen out of some wagon. " At this Akbar set out to America. By smuggling himself as a stowaway on board ship and undergoing many privations, he at last arrived in New York. 1» H» ¥ Mrs. Jones, coming home from the opera one night, was startled to see that her living-room rug was gone. She phoned the police, but it was no use, for Akbar lay in the bottom of the ship " Oceanic, " bound for Persia, with the precious dowry rug beside him. He had traced it to the home of Mrs. Jones and had carried it off. Ten years had now passed and Ary- anibar despaired of ever seeing her Akbar again. But a week later, he came in their house, worn out and haggard from lack of food and drink. Seeing him so, Ikobore said, " Well you are here at last, but I see that you have not found the rug, have you? " Akbar smiled faintly, left the room, and returned with a suitcase. To the astonishment of Aryanibar and her father, there lay the thousand dollar Kirmanshah, and with the Kir- manshah the reward came, too. MORTON WALLLACE.
