The A9 graduating tribe of Dana Iunior High School, headed by
our great chief, Mr. Porter, started on our hunting expedition three
years ago, formidably armed with pencils, books and papers. Though
game was plentiful all about us, we discovered that we had to improve
our sltill as marksmen, in order to bag it successfully. Now we feel as
if we have a supply adequate to carry us into a larger hunting ground.
As a specimen of our efforts we leave to the Great Spirit of Richard
Henry Dana this Dana Log which is a record of some of our experi-
ences while hunting in his domain.

lustice, right, equity are ideas that enlarge the human horizon as
they enter life. No attitude should be taken in this great West which
will not insure to all, their thorough enjoyment.
California was the mecca of thousands in 1847 after Iohn Mar-
shall electrified the world by his discovery of a few shining particles of
gold in the sands of the stream, and California in an incredibly short
time requested membership in the greatest of the world's republics.
Our school. a part of California, is one of thousands that are func-
tioning toward the building of citizens that our country may grow in
the appreciation, respect, and trust of the world.

years, including the years of early Spanish jurisdiction, makes us only
stewards, for long before-we know not how long-other peoples.

GOOD HUNTING! WINTER CLASS 0F '31
In the BIG HUNT may your minds be clean and clear, your eyes
far seeing and clear of vision. your muscles firm and quick of action.
May you keep your bows dry and your arrow heads keen edged,
and may you bring down in the hunt as your quarry the finest of game
-honor, a measure of contentment, the respect and love of your fel-
low tribesmen. X
And as you grow richer in years and wisdom, may each of you
have a fine tepee in the village of the tribe, and may each tepee be
lull of happiness, admiration and love, and as the BIG HUNT draws
near its close, may each one say in full conviction, "I have done my
GREETINGS, CLASS OF '31
To you, Class of Winter '31, I extend my hearty congratulations
for having outgrown the wild Indian stage and arrived at a very satis-
factory state of self-control. I have found you full of life, but there is
very little evidence of your being "wild," At times your enthusiasm
has been so great that you have found it necessary to effervesce, but
always in the right spirit.
Indians are reputed to use tomahawks freely, but you apparently
have not inherited the killing instinct. On the contrary, I have learned
to depend on you, as a class, to initiate and give life to the progressive
movements which have helped to give this school the high standards
and traditions that it now has.
I shall miss you.

"THE STOLEN PRINCE"
"The Stolen Prince," by Dan Totheroh, one of the two class plays.
is a playlet done in the Chinesefashion. The first scene takes place in
the garden of the Emperor Lang Moo in the Middle Flower Kingdom
a thousand years ago. lt is a very important time in the household of
the Emperor Lang Moo because a child is about to be born into the
family and he prays that it will be a son. Instead of a son, twins are
born, a boy and a girl.
Two important characters, Long Fo, and his master, Wing Lee,
steal the baby prince, thinking it is a girl, to keep her from being be-
headed. They put the prince in a tub and float it down a great river.
He is found by a poor fisherman and his wife who adopt him as their
This poor fisherman has a trained duck, Lee Mee, which catches
fish for his family. Ten years later Mee, searching for food for Ioy,
the name given the prince, returns with the king's sacred fish in his
bill. Two soldiers of the royal court see the innocent fisherman about
to divide the fish and arrest the whole family, joy is to be executed
firstg but while he is bending his head before the fatal axe, the execu-
tioner notices the string of beads around his neck and asks to have the
necklace removed. Long Foo and Wing Lee recognize the necklace as
the same one worn by the prince when he was stolen. They tell all they
know to the soldiers, who deliver the happy news to the dying emperor.
The property man furnishes the comedy of this delightful play.
Miss Guio directed the play.
Winkler, Gabelich, Naranjo, Bogdanovic. Gould, Crumpley, Hopsnn.
Colbert, Barnes, Williams, Davidson, Walstrom, Teel, Harbin.
"The Neighbours," an interesting playlet portraying small town
characters, was the second of the two plays presented by the winter
class of '31,
Mrs. Ellsworth. one of the women of the neighbourhood, gets a
wire from the East that her sister has died, leaving an orphan boy
whom they are sending to her. It is not long before the news has spread
from house to house in the neighbourhood. Mrs. Abel suggests that
they give Mrs. Ellsworth a surprise. All agree that this is a fine idea,
for Mrs. Ellsworth, whose chief source of income is a pension of thirty
dollars per month for her husbands lost leg, does not have enough
money to support the child. Peter, a shy country boy, very much in
love with Inez, the daughter of Mrs. Abel, and Ezra also aid in the
Mrs. Trot, another neighbour, volunteers to make the ice cream
and Mrs. Moran the cake, while the rest go about the neighbourhood
getting old clothes. When all is about ready, Mrs, Ellsworth arrives
to spread the news that the boy is not coming, that he is to be left with
some of his fathers' people. In the meantime Peter "spills the beans"
about the surprise, not knowing Mrs. Ellsworth is present.
Miss Mayhew directed the play.

South wind, like memory's vision seen from afar, whispered, "l'd
know you wherever you are."
For years it had been all work and no play. At last I had reached
the goal of my ambition. Thinking it time to take a long delayed vaca-
tion, I boarded a ship bound for the South Seas.
The third night out the moon was' full. Who could sleep? Wan-
dering aimlessly about the deck, drinking in the beauty of the tropical
night, I wondered if any one could be as happy as I, if many of my old
lglassmates had acheived their heart's desire. Oh! how I wanted to
South Wind, like memory's vision seen from afar, whispered,
"I'd know you wherever you are."
Ah, a vision! I see a handsome young man closing his aviation
school for the long Antartic night and going home to his sweet little
wife, Ioan Walters, who runs the only beauty parlor at the South Pole.
He is greeted with, "Why, Clifton Balsley, why are you so late?"
"Oh, I've been trying to pound aviation into the heads of Dominic
Tudor, Raymond Radcliffe, and Russell Hafstadf'
"Hope Wilson and Esther Selin have been putting permanent
waves in stiff Eskimo hair all day. You must fly to them to Tony
Rodich's lunch counter."
Sweet music is wafted to me in the South Wind. I see a concert
Bill Hopson, world famous bass, accompanied by Dan Dahlquist,
is receiving applause from an enthusiastic audience. On the program
with him are Ioseph Winkler and Hope Hipple, also accomplished
Lois Walstrom and Irma Koskela, under the supervision of
George Phillips, are dancing at an exhibition performance for President
Harvey Ludwig and his wife, Iewel Malmgren.
"The Olympic games," reads a sign over a huge coliseum.
Ioe Zar comes in victorious in the fifty-yard dash.
Olaf Pederson, an accomplished ticket collector, is seen talking to
Buddy Parks, yell-leader of U. S. C. .
In the audience, watching the events, are Tom Iankovich, dean of
U. S. C., Felix Gygare, professor of biology: Vanita Mitchell, assistant
in Mathematics: Corinne Davidson, professor or history: Evelyn
Barnes, instructor in the department of Fine Arts.
Some of the teachers of Dana are also at the games. Mary' Gay.
the principal, is seen sitting beside Charles Litschke, boys' vice-
principal. Iimmie Windsor, who is in the office constantly, but this time
as attendance clerk, is seen talking to Dorothy Fahler, the secretary.
On West Thirteenth Street I see a sign that tells me Don L. Boren
and Cullen Gulko are in the undertaking business. In their outer office
are Effie Erickson and Edan Edwards, efficient stenographers.
Don L's private secretary, Dorothy Bermingham, is taking notes
for a letter to David McCafferty, who is engineering a great bridge
project with the assistance of David Reynolds.
An incessant trum-trum-trum-sounded in my ears, much too loud
and lively to be part of my vision.
Ahead were the open windows of the salon. Looking in I actually
saw -Sulo Hill playing a big Hawaiin guitar. He is a member of the

THE THRIFT ORGANIZATION
The Thrift Organization of Richard Henry Dana is sponsored by
Mrs. Woodard, seventh grade: Mr. Wetzel, eighth grade: and Mrs.
Miller, ninth grade. All the thrift captains, for better efficiency, are
chosen from one room, Mrs. Miller's A7 homeroom. The thrift captains
are: Virginia Bulpitt, Dorothy Fisher, Thora Damuth, Bessie Shultz,
Margurite Lanning, Philip Ramsdale, Helen Brodie, Stephen Stanbuk,
Keith Riddle, Howard Winter, Oscar Gnsat, Robert Miller, Woodrow
Miller, Agnes Beckman, Iames Thompson, Eugene Turgeson, Onis
Phillips, Louise Knotts, Elmer Nigg, Virginia Doak, Dorothy Beckley
and Charles Winters.
Each week they visit the different homerooms. This semester they
have been giving monologs and singing thrift songs as well as securing
statistics and giving talks. The record of the thrift work is kept by
points. It is worked out in a very novel and interesting manner. The
thermometer idea is used. Each new account causes the temperature
to climb one point.
The attendance is also checked in the homerooms, The home-
rooms having the highest number of points for thrift and attendance
is awarded a thrift banner to hang in the homeroom for one month.
Under the thrift captains are the thrift committemen, one in each
homeroom, who have charge of the thrift work in one room.
Dana has shown a steady increase in school savings accounts.
This semester there are approximately fifty more saving accounts than
there were last year.

THE STAGE CREW
The Stage Crew is an organization of thirteen boys selected by
their sponsor, Mr. Dinwiddie. This is a very important organization as
they are responsible for all the stage work when plays, assemblies, and
other entertainments are in session. The crew is a very selected group
of boys, as they must be quiet, reliable, and obedient. Without their
help many of our plays would not be as successful as they are. The
boys of this crew are divided into five groups: lights, property room.
curtains, doormen, and scene shifters. They are appointed to their
positions by their sponsor. The sponsor appoints the boy he thinks
can do the job, and it is up to the individual to see that the work is done
well. The members of the club are: Charles Hill, Clinton Herron, Ray-
mond Stolmack, Glen Sands, Floyd Mickens, Raymond Radcliffe.
Charlie Dever. Iames Dodson, Frank Iohnson. Wayne Brunnick, Wal-
ter Wiklem, Van Barbarie, and Castro Duran.
The pilot organization was begun during the first semester after
the school was opened. The students, at the beginning of the semester,
formed a sort of government to regulate the traffic in the halls, keep
order in the auditorium and cafeteria, and to check lunch permits for
those going home for lunch at noon. Mr. Porter and Miss Whittlesey
called a meeting in the auditorium. Every homeroom, with the excep-
tion of the B7's, was to elect two boys and two girls as representa-
tives. At this meeting the students chose the name pilots for this or-
ganization as being appropriate for our school, which emphasizes the
sea idea. The pilot badgeswhich are issued to the different officers
after election, have a picture of a sailing vessel on them.
Court martial is the only form of punishment used by the pilots.
Court martial is held when a suflicient number of students have re-
ceived four or more pilot cards. Miss Whittlesey summons the offend,
ers to Mr. Porter's office where the court martial is held. The oifendf
ers are brought into court by the sergeant-at-arms, who directs him,
or her to Mr. Porter's desk. The real-admiral swears in the offender
and the secretary reads the offenses to the court. If he, or she declares
not guilty the case is dismissed until the witnesses who signed the
card are procured. If the accused pleads guilty, the culprit is examined
by the court. The court decides upon the punishment, which usually is
a number of courses in citizenship. The minmimum number of courses
in citizenship is one, The number of courses is determined by the
seriousness of the offense. The court or jury is made up of the admiral,
vice-admiral, real-admiral, secretary, and the pilot captains, who total
This organization has as many members as there are homerooms,
for the commander of each homeroom automatically becomes a mem-
ber. The commander is the same as a president. He acts as chairman
at all elections in the homerooms, and often takes full charge at every
meeting. ln case the teacher is out of the room, the commander of the
group takes charge of the class. lt is his duty to keep order in assembly
at all times. If the commander does not keep his homeroom in order, he
is not likely to get the office the next semester. The commanders are
usually very good.
The commanders of the homerooms are as follows: B7 group:

BOYS' SPORTS '
The boys' major sport at the beginning of the school term was
football. Under the direction of Mr. Wasserburger, noon and after-
school leagues were run off. The homeroom teams were divided into
classes according to the size of the boys on the team. The winners of
the after-school leagues were as follows: Class C, Homeroom 155:
Class D, Homeroom 202: Class E, Homeroom 304: Class F, Home-
room 309. The winners of the noon leagues were: Class C, Homeroom
1715 Class D, Homeroom 206: Class E, I-lomeroom 211: Class F,
A gym league was also started and the members of Mr. Wassen-
burger's, Mr. Sutcliffe's, and Mr. Robinson's classes played for the
championship of their gym periods. The winners of the gym league
were: first period, Dana juniors: second period, Pirates: third period,
Phantom Eleven: fourth period, Robins: fifth period, Alawished: sixth
period, Notre Dame.
The members of the championship teams in the after-school and
gym leagues receive points, and the winning homerooms in the noon
league receive banners.
Ev-ery boy in Dana is given a chance to win a letter. The letters
are awarded every semester and points are carried over from one
semester to another. No award is given to any boy who receives a
grade of E in any subject for the semester until his grades have been
raised. No award is given to any boy who does not receive a C, or
better, in physical education.
In order to make it possible for every boy to make a monogram in
his three years in junior high school the following points are awarded:
first monogram, 175 pointsg second monogram, 350 points: third mono-
gram, 500 points: and so on as high as one can go. The first monogram
is a plain block On each mongram after that a small ship is
There are approximately eighty-five lettermen in the school now
and a lot expect to get letters this semester. Some of the ways in which
points can be made are by being office boy, wholesome living chairman.
and squad leader.
The boys can also make points in self-testing events which, for
this semester, are: football pass for accuracy, pass for distance, basket-
ball throw for time, and basketball throw for accuracy.
During the remainder of the school term the gym teams will play
speedball. This is a new sport which has not yet been played in this
school but is very popular in other schools. It is a combination of soc-
ces, basketball, and football.
Every semester when a sport is finished the A9's and the B9's get
up teams that are composed of the boys that have excelled in this
particular sport. These teams are called the B9 All Stars and the A9
All Stars. The captains are picked by Mr. Wasserburger while the
captains pick their teams. This semester's captains for football are
Louie Patalono, for the B9 All Stars, and Ioe Zar for the A9 All

The girls' athletic season opened this year with volley ball.
Every gymnasium class chose teams, every girl being a member on
some team. Each team elected a captain and also a name for itself. All
the girls learned the rules of the games so that they could umpire the
scheduled games .for their period if they were called upon.
The series of class games which determines the period champions
is called the Round Robin Tournament, while the group of games that
determines the school championshiws called th Elimination Tourna-
ment. ' , f
The True-Blues, captained by Ma y ay, the champion-
ship in volley ball for the morning classe he e-Smackers, after
keen competition, won the afternoon cha pionship game from the
Spartans, captained by Lois Walstrom, with a score of nineteen to
eighteen. The Sure-Smackers then won the school championship from
the True-Blues. Madeline Gabelich was the captain of the Sure-
Smackers. Other members, of the team were: Esther Selin, Mary
Grevas, Effie Erickson, Dorothy Solie, Lena Donatoni, Nina Bogdano-
vEh,lTVlardelle Pilgrim, Amalia Carreon, Bettie Tobies, and Aune
The game was a very exciting one and brought a large crowd to
cheer. Both teams displayed fine teamwork volleying the ball back and
forth over the net many times, trying hard for each point. The True-
Blues lost by only one point, the score being nineteen to eighteen. Mr.
Porter was the official referee for this game and Miss Whittlesey was
the official linesman.
The school champions are to receive seventy-five points, and the
morning and afternoon champions are to receive twenty-five points on
their point record cards. The points count toward receiving the
There are many different ways to earn points toward a mono-
gram besides being on winning teams. Some of these methods are by
being a monitor, by acting as a squad leader, or by being captain of a
team. Ten points are awarded to any girl who has played the game to
the best of her ability and has displayed good sportsmanship, even
though her team has not been victorious. Many girls earn these points
for they all try to uphold the Dana spirit.
For her first one hundred and seventy-five points a girl receives
the shield: when three hundred and fifty points are earned she receives
a chevron to be sewed under the ship: those girls who earn five hun-
dred points are awarded a shield and two chevrons. Three chevrons
and one star are awarded for eight hundred and fifty points, and three
chevrons and two stars for one thousand points. The last is the highest
The girls shield has been improved. lntsead of being the blue
