Tl-IE l-IAIVIILTONIAN 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 tournament. 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 ground night. 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 before. Pd!! Fifi!-sit

THE HAIVIILTONII-RN Honor: Heaitim Club THE Honor Health Club is a growing or- ganization for girls, which has as its primary objective the betterment of our school by raising its health standard. We wish to create an interest in health and all the benefits which go with it. Perfect health is a most important tool in building a good education and means effi- ciency and happiness. Every girl is urged to find out her physi- cal rating by reporting for this purpose on any Thursday afternoon throughout the school ye ar. Those who are not successful in passing every part of the many difficult tests re- lating to posture, spine, feet, nutrition levidenced in color and condition of skin,and weightl eyes, ears, nose,throat and teeth, are told just how the desired results may be obtained and urged to report again, for a re-check. In some cases, it may require considerable time for successful accomp- lishment but the honor attained, the great- er usefulness in service to others, and the fun of being an H. H. C. member is worth it all. 'Ihe service side of the club activities is worked out through its organization and also through very friendly social contact with those outside the club. Part of the fun comes in the monthly luncheons with entertainment features, and also through social affairs such as the H. H. C. Hi Jinks party given to all girls in school, on May 1. One or more such good times is being planned as a part of each year's activities. The H. H. C. Annua Banquet, which is city-wide, and has as its guests the Principals and Superintendent Stephens, is always a big affair. A bit of fun at the Hi J inks has been shown Page Fill,-. in our H.H.C. pictures. Our gym assumed a most festive appearance: Aclown with wooden hands and another with electricity in her finger tips were most cordial in shak- ing hands with everybody. Other clowns labeled us at once, so our education would be advanced, by attendance at one of four colleges: The Tillie Toilers, The Winnie Winkles,The Orphan Annies and the Dumb Doras. Each college sent its best athletes to compete in the most difficult feats and stunt known to these renownedinstitutions. There were police who arrested persons for jay walking, for fishing without ali- cense, for speeding. parking overtime, re- sisting an officer, etc. Such offenders were taken at once to the police station, where their cases were tried and penalties imposed. Special vaudeville numbers were given, includiug the Doctor Magician with wonder- ful powersof heautifying those sadly afflict- ed with transmagnify-cando-bundanciality, or oroptical toptical, electro-scoptical fantas- magoria, etc. The dwarf was exhibited in a dance number proving his ability to sus- pend himself in mid air. We were fortunate in securing the Goops, a hardly human spe- cies, who entertained in strange songs and dance. The accomplished tight rope walker braved her perils in true form: and it is sel- dom the privilege of any school to witness the work of such a splended Inverted Quartette who could sing beautifully while standing on their heads. In the latter part of the program hilarity reigned when everybody present took an active part. ' - . The club sponsor, Miss Beard, was assist- ed by Mrs. Howe and Mrs. Harriman. H. H. C. slogan for 1929-1930: A 100 percent school membership for Hamilton's Health Club. right
