Girl.-S, Pltysiccil. Education
EMBLEMS, chevrons, letters, stars!
These awards mean a great deal to
Hamilton girls. They mean months or even
years of work in health and physical ac-
tivities. The girl who wins even the least
of these fthe embleml must have many of
the following characteristics: She must
have good health, be active in athletic ac-
tivities, bea leader, be dep :ndable and have
perseverence. "The harder we work for any-
thing, the more we appreciate it." Surely
Hamilton girls are proud of their emblems,
chevrons, letters and stars.
Most of the points for the awards have
been won outside of class work. After-
school playground offers every girl a chance
to have a healthy body, a good time and a
school award. This year more girls have
stayed for playground than ever before.
The first semester Mable Ratcliff was
commissioner of girls' athletics. Mary Jane
Tharpe and Carmella Iantorno were Chief
Color Captains. The second semester Anna
Maude Roberts was Comissioner with Lucille
Smith and Gail Yingling as chief Color Cap-
tains.These officers have usually had train-
ing as squad leaders or color captains. They
have many duties. They must know the
rules of every game which is played in
Hamilton as they are often called upon to
referee. On team nights they organize
teams and put them to work on the field.
During the tournaments they have complete
charge of appointing referees, time keepers
and score keepers.
In the fall, volley ball was played the
first quarter, and basket ball the second.
The 9A class that went to High School in
February won the championship in both of
these games. Soccer, the most popular game
of the year, was played the third quarter.
In order to take care of the large numbers
attending, Thursday was added as an extra
team night. The last game of the tourna-
ment was played April 12 beween the 9As
and 9Bs. Neither team had been defeated.
After a close and exciting game the 9A team
won, score-3 to 1. Baseball is the last game
of the year and as most Long Beach girls
have played it from the first grade up, there
is sure to he some very good playing in the
Tuesday night is "Free-play" night at
the gymnasium. Every girl can do the thing
that she likes best. Mats, ropes, rings and
other pieces of apparatus are in use. Many
novel stunts and games are played. Every
girl votes Tuesday the most popular play
The big event of the year was the Flag
Drill at Poly High. Over one hundred
Hamilton girls took part in it and the
basket ball game at the Mass Health Dem-
onstration during Education Week. The
drill was practiced almost entirely in play-
ground time. When Hamilton's hundred
girls joined the seven hundred from the
other secondary schools the drill was by far
the most beautiful every given in Long
Beach. The flags whirled in five different
figures to the tune of "Stars and Stripes
Forever". After the drill all of the girls
sang "I Love You Calforniaf' Arrange-
ments are being made to get points for be-
ing in this drill.
Next year let us try to have more emblem,
chevron, letter, and star girls than ever

made by Takahashi. The stellar perform-
ers in the batting fields have been Taka-
hashi, who scored three runs: and Hess,
totaling 2. Christensen, List and Franklin
each rang up one run.
With six lettermen returning, the Eagles
have a fine chance to win the champion-
ship, and should repeat the triumphs on
the three previous seasons.
Muir is the regular moundsman: with
Christensen, catcher: Hernandez, Taka-
hashi, and McGee, first, second and third
sackers: Hess, short-stop and Combs, List
and Franklinaas fielders racking him.
The Class C outfit backed down from its
last years position. due to the lack of ex-
perienced players. First Jefferson chewed
up the locals, 7-4: then Franklin, defeated
last year, caught the weasel napping and
bounced Hamilton, 4-2. The Eaglets took
the back track, but they faced the music:
they have a brick in the hat somewhere.
No lettermen returned to the lightweight
division, but from the prospects, Salveson
and Havenstrite were chosen hurlers: Rip-
perdan, catcher: Sahr, Hill and Wneeler,
first, second and third basemen: Hendricks,
short-stop: and Erikson, Cecil and Buckles,
With these teamsters victorous, victories
ought to be grabbed from the remaining
competitors. Up to date Hill has made two
runs: Sahr, two: Salveson, one: and Buckles
COACH Cline's Acrobats began practice
at the first of the semester. After
steering through handicaps and weeding
out some of the less talented material,
three championship-threatening teams have
been developed. Prospects are good and
the Hamilton gym teams are determined to
uphold Hamilton traditions and nab cups
in all three divisions.
With only one letterman returning in the
Class A division a flashy team of strong
performers has been developed. Most of
the old steller performers were lost by
Four lettermen returned to continue to
earn laurels in class B, as they did last year
when the Hamilton gymnasts won the mid-
The class C group took a new lease on life
when some peppy performers reported for
practice. Among them came one letterman.
