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

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
'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
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.
