it ,... K tt , IT N IKNQEEES CO,L9l'Ld.CLU ofa the Year SEPTEMBER 6 6 EADY for school?" "Have a nice vacation ?" "Goodbye summer sports! ' ' "I surely hate to start in again!" All old and familiar remarks heard on the first day of school. A month crammed full of interesting eventsg a month fcr mak- ing good impressions. But one big mistake was made: some one forgot to "spit out his wax," and over thirteen hundred gumchewers were called into the audito- rium to be reminded that vacation was over. OCTOBER As " per usual" speedball held sway this month, and we had many hot and ex- citing games. The Eaglets brought home the "Silverware" . Then there was Hollowe'en, and what have you? NOVEMBER Pumpkin pie, student council party, and a social welfare drive to raise funds and food for the less fortunate families,--- were the features that marked the third month of school. Then, Oh, boy! came Thanksgiving and its vacation. DECEMBER Snowi Verdant hills were now snow- clad. What wouldn't we have given for one good snowball fight! Did you ever see a real doll show? We did. The Girls' league attempted and successfully accomplished a high class doll show for the benefit of the Children's hospital. The dramatic classes staged the annual Christmas play. Everyone left school with the spirit of Christmas in his heart. JANUARY 'Ibis is the time to make resolutions, but before the 31st we usually find out that it is much easier to break them. We almost had a duplicate of last year's flood. How- ever, the water wasn't deep enough to call out the gondolas. Eight Basketball season started. Scholarship banquet, held at the Club California, was enjoyed immensely by members of the "Brain Trust." The operetta proved to be the crowning achievement of this semester's work. It was a great success. FEBRUARY Someone is always bound to be disappoint- ed when February comes around with its report cards, but, on the whole, the school was well satisfied and a large 9A class graduated. We had a "lot 0' fun" out of the 7 B's who just "grabbed up" the elevator tickets and library passes. On top of that we were treated to an afternoon vacation when the teachers went to the yeariy 1e- ception given in honor of Supt. Stephens. MARCH March has ever been pictured as a roar- ing lion and pictures of blowing hats and blustering days are always used to illus- trate it. After each "Santa Ana" the "pet" diversion of the 9A's was to draw pictures in the sand before the teacher's duster swooped across each desk. At last Hamilton has a motion picture machine. Oh! Boy! And the annual staff was elected. Everyone was satisfied on. the whole except those chosen. APRIL The weather always warms up in April -if that mlttars any. Ani it's always sup- posed to rain whether it does or not. Educa- tional Week and the student Council party were the main events of this month. MAY May is the time of grunions. They are very good to eat, but, if you eat too many, you will not live to see another May. The annual Tract Meft was the most outstanding event of this month. Our boys. did their best -so did our girls. JUNE h "What is so rare as a day in June?" -ws Q. --" X -w"'3s""X 5NF"NS,Y" Y" .rx Nam "N 'W L' 5-.

Y First, we leave to our principal the memory of our smiling, earnest faces Our belligerent classmates also leave to him the worn spot on his office carpet in fond appreciation of his untiring efforts. Second, to our vice-principal we leave a brand new police whistle recently procured from Nick Harris, Los Angeles detective and radio speaker of KFI. We leave him this whistle on the condition that he does not use it unnecessarily or let the children play with it, V Third, to the dean of girls. we will all the trials of selecting a suitable graduation gown for the girls of the next 9A class. Fourth, to our counselor, we bequeath all the tribulation that the members of a troublesome 9A class can invent in regard to their program. ' Fifth, we endow our attendance clerks with all original alibis and excuses for being tardy or absent. Sixth, to the sponsor of the Boys' League, who has labored so valiantly to obtain the motion picture machines we leave, as a pleasant CD pastime, the duty of securing a radio, with a loud-speaker for every classroom. Seventh, to the faculty as a whole, we leave our sincere thanks for their zeale ous efforts in our behalf and the loyalty of all persons whom we can influence We also extend to them the privilege of using any method fauthorized by the Chief of Policel to instruct the future 9A's in the way they should go. Eighth, to the employees of the cafeteria, we do solemnly present our total supply of 1,325 students with the earnest desire that they may be moulded into just as robust individuals as we are. For this purpose we also bequeath to the cafeteria one quintillion f1,000,000,000,000,000,000J calories and vitamines. Ninth, to the complete Student Body, we bestow thirty-seven Student Patrol badges: thirty-three memberships in the Scholarship Society: eight offices in the Student Council, fifty-four parts in the annual play or operettag nine position helping in the library: nine privileges helping in the office: twenty-two much envied offices of study-hall monitors: two girls champiohship titles: seventeen places in the orchestra: and seven editorships on the "annual" staff. Tenth and last, to the 9B's, we leave our vast responsibilities, the front seats in the auditorium which some of them tried to occupy this year, the duty of upholding our standards by reprimanding gum-chewers, hall-racers, chatter- boxes, unofficially appointed class orators, late students and budding artists who exercise talent by making caricatures of study hall teachers. We therefore nominate, appoint, petition and empower the driver of the 3:30 Lang bus to be the executor of this, our last Will and testament. 9A class M. T. Head, President, SEAL N. O. Brains, Vice-president, E. Z. Going, Secratary, I. O. Money, Treasurer, T Officers of the 9A Class '-"
