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.
As " per usual" speedball held sway
this month, and we had many hot and ex-
citing games. The Eaglets brought home
. Then there was Hollowe'en, and what
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.
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
The dramatic classes staged the annual
Christmas play. Everyone left school with
the spirit of Christmas in his heart.
'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.
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.
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 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
Oh! Boy! And the annual staff was
elected. Everyone was satisfied on. the
whole except those chosen.
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 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.

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.
