Editing the annual has been, to most of the staff, like a journey over unknown ways. At first we had only a vague idea of what was ahead of us, but as we went on we found each day full of interesting and valuable experiences. Most of all we shall long remember our happy comradeship in the strenuous endeavor. Our pride in the cooperation and loyalty of all is equalled only by our pleasure in the com­ pleted result. It is with much gratitude that we, the annual staff, present EL ESPIRITU DE 1939 to the students and faculty of Claremont High School.

((The Pilot" Each person has some influence for good or ill 111 every group of which he is a member.

Democracy depends upon intelligent, indi,·idual respon-­ sibility. The helpful attention given to this phase of school life by student leaders during 1938-39 holds great promise for future develop1nent in our high school. Seniors deserve much credit for starting and leading in this moYement. The ''torch'' is now left for other classes to ca,'ry for­ ward.

To the class of 1939, congratulation�! It has been :i pleasure to know and work with you. �\Iany happy memo­ ries of our association will linger. l\ily very best wishes to each and e,·eryone of you for much success and pleasure. Sincerely yours, Et\RL THOi\lPSO).', Principal.

"The Future Shines Brightly Jy

The Senior High Student Council, composed of student body officers and class representati,·es, holds two sessions each month under the supen-ision of Dr. Thompson. lt has become a ,·ital force in Claremont Tligh School, with stu­ dents and teachers alike realizing its importance. Among this year's accomplishments were the proposals of several amendments to the constitution \\'hich were voted by the student body.

"Clear the Way''

Easily overlooked, but yet ttnportant, is the Junior High Student Council. It meets eHry month and discusses prob­ lems of the Junior High. It then acts on them as the need or importance•dcmands. One of the undertakings of this year was the sponsoring of the Red Cross drive for the entire school. The guiding hand of the se\·enth, eighth, and ninth grades is indeed the Junior High Student Council.

ft is said that Claremont High School has more activities than any other school. For. the size it is undoubtedly true. \Ve pride ourselves upon our scholastic achieYement. \Ve have aided the Red Cross, Casa Colina, and Claremont's needy citizens. In addition, we have proYided ourselves with dances, plays, and carnivals. This year has set a precedent in the interest in new activities. Inspired by the ideas of our student body president, we have studied extensively the pos­ sibilities of Student Government. Busy? Yes, but happy.

"Ye Sons of France, Awake"

The French Club, composed of students from the French ' classes, meets every other week at the home of one of its members. There they have a very interesting time, carrying on business and games in French, and usually ending the evening with refreshments. The club attended several French movies during the year.

This year the Spanish Club divided into first and second year groups, each meeting once a month. The first half hour of each meeting was devoted to business and games, conducted in Spanish, and the last half was for refreshments • and conversation.

Scribblers, the oldest club in the school, has done more for the creati,·e ability than any other organization. To each of the bi-monthly meetings the members bring their crea­ tions as anonymous contributions to be read aloud and freely criticized. This group offers suggestions and encouragement to youthful authors and we feel sure that some of our aspiring talent will be heard from in the future.

Among the many things the Economics Club has done this semester were trips taken to understand better the con­ ditions of workers. Thev ,·isited Los Angeles markets, Tele­ phone Company, and the Federal Reserve Bank. During the year they kept clippings of economic interest which were made into a scrap book. Thus, in an interesting way, they have studied and learned of the economic problems of our country.

The orchestra this year is comprised of thirty-one mem­ bers who are well on the road to becoming accomplished musicians. Under the able direction of Mrs. Howe, they have progressed rapidly, and performed exceptionally well in the Orchestra Program. Although several good players graduated to the senior orchestra last year, the junior high organization was compensated by the students who entered in the fall.

"Touch the Harp Gently"

This year the orchestra performance consisted of a con­ cert by the Junior and Senior High orchestras followed by a play, the scene of which was a garden party, and the cos­ tumes and scenery were in keeping with the setting. The· plot was cleverly written to bring out the musical abilities of the cast. Thanks to the splendid cooperation of the fac­ ulty and the orchestra, the program was a great success.

The fellowship, sport�manship, and good feeling which plays so great a part in our school life has been enhanced and enriched by our contacts with Coach Martin, Ji:n Prince, Mr. ·Wilby, and Mrs. Schafer. They have taught us the meaning of fair play. They have taught us how to win courteously and to take our losses with chins up. Be­ sides being teachers, they have proved to be true fri,ends. By Hear judgment and insight they contribute much toward establishing the ideal of a wholesome, dean, and happy life.

"Come Out) )tis Now September )) Climaxing the season with a smashing 49-0 win over California Republic on Armistice Day, the \Volfpack broke even in the "won and lost" column with four wins and four reverses. The team was hit hard by injuries all season long and the squad of some twenty-odd men at the start of the season dwindled down to skeleton size in mid-season, and one game had to be cancelled because of lack of reserve strength. Despite such handicaps the team kept coming back for more and finished the season in a blaze of glory. After losing to Puente 20-0 in the opening game of the season the Pack came back two weeks later to win 14-7. The game wasn't even close until the last <]uarter when the invaders suddenly came to life to make a last minute score. Mac­ Harg's long pass to Howard Bradley for a score was the highlight of the game. Pre- vious to the second Puente en­ counter the Pack rolled over California Preparatory School

74-0. Dick Pound and Joe i\[acHarg each scored thre•� touchdowns, the latter once on a seventy yard run after intercepting a desperate Prep pass. It was only 13-0 at the half but the boys broke loose and scored four touchdowns in the third quarter and six in the final. After battling on even terms for three quarters with Placentia, Claremont broke the ice on a touchdo,rn pass from l\IacHarg to Tracy. the final score reading 6-0. The Pomona \Vildcats caught the Pack on a bad day and defeated them 21-0 for the worst defeat of the season.

Other players outstanding in the season's play were: Herbert Duddridge, far and away the best lineman on the field; Dick Pound, a new man this year who saw a lot of action both at end and in the backfield; Willis Lake, fast charging wingman; Joseph Mobley, invaluable reserve, and Graham Wilson, whose early promise was cut short by in­ Junes.

"Ah, for Wings To Soar" The 1939 edition of the Claremont High track tearn opened the season with a \'ery convincing 77-27 win over Chino. Double winners include<l MacHarg and Swarts as the Pack took he first places. :'.\ext the Pack rolled up 73 ¼ points in a triangular affair with \Vebb and California Junior Republic . Sprinkle took the high jump and b ro ad jump, Dudclridge the shot and 880. Meeting with Pomona Frosh and Chaffey, Sprinkle set a new school record in the javelin with a heave of 149 feet 7 inches. Billesbach won the broad jump. Defeats at the hands of Downey and Bonita followed. In the divisional meet at Colton, Sprinkle set a new l•eague record with a leap of 6 feet ½ inch. Bradley in the 440 and Duddridge in the 880 were also victorious.

Claremont was fifth wit_h 13 I 5 points, the first time in four years that Coach :\Jartin's team has dropped out of the first division. The highlight of the season occurred in the Southern California i\leet at the Los Angeles Coliseum where Sprinkle jumped 6 feet 3 inches to win the title and set a new school record. The "X" team traveled a rocky roaJ this season as no one placed in the Tri-County :\feet. However, they did well in dual meets with Parrilla in the 50 anJ 1320, Gonzales in the hurdles, Paul in the sprints, and Campbell in the high jump and pole vault were consistent place winners.

"Slide, Kelly, Slide"

Varsity Baseball got under way late in April guided by Jim Prince who sent the boys off to a good start with four victories and three defeats as this goes to press. The Po­ mona College Frosh fell before them three times by con­ vincing scores in early practice games. Citrus defeated them 13-3 in the first league game of the season. Continuing their practice of the last several years of going to Catalina Island for a game with Avalon High. the Pack nine made a two day affair of it, April 16 and 17, at the start of the Spring Vacation. MacHarg, Baughman, and Talbott led the hitting attack. Raymond Guerrero, the pitcher, went the route to win, 11-7. Defeats at the hands of Downey, 10-3, and Col­ ton, 23-2, followed, and games with Chino, Bonita, Puente. and Corona wound up the season.

"Love Is the Theme"

As is often the case in the spring, Varsity Tennis had tu compete-..with the many outside distractions that come up in the last term. The bas!,:ball and track teams had first call on many of the boys and it was only with a great deal of effort that organized practice was made possible. Six returning lettermen were greeted by Mr. \:Vilby, their coach. Their presence made his task of weeding out other contenders fo!·• positions much easier. After a tournament and after trials, the team was made up of Earle Vought, first singles, who also doubled as manager; Gerald Baughman, second sin­ gles; Clifford Gettman, third singles; and Stanley Barnes, fourth singles. First doubles were composed of Arthur Tracy and Joe MacHarg, while seco.nd doubles were two newcomers, Guthrie Darr and Don Beatty.

responsibility and making it a huge success in spite of occa­ sional flurries of snow. Hockey started with a bang with the annual rush for shin guards that matched, and sticks that would hit the ball. Form and precision were essential, especially in planning attacks. Again the seniors wielded the sticks vigorously and the season wound up with a grand playday at Chino with three of Claremont's four teams winning. Baseball was the last of the team sports and the girls through rea I effort turned out many players to be proud of. This game was ended with a gala color playday with schools mixing rather than playing as separate units. This year se,·eral new individual sports have been added which have helped to make Gym a farnrite period. Probably the most outstanding of these is archery, for which fine equip­ ment has been provided; badminton and ping pong have proved very popular. A ladder tournament, watched with interest by everyone, began in the fall, ending finally in the spring and determining, out of the many fine players the ones who would make up the team.

Literary interest in the high school centers in the publi­ cation of the vV0LF PACKET and the A:--.rNLI\L, and in Scribblers Club. These three offer the greatest opportunity in the school for creative expression. l\tiany an eager young \Vinchell, Mark Twain, or Edna St. Vincent Millay finds encouragement for his efforts in connection with one of these projects. Others not quite as ambitious in developing their literary talents are urged on by the work of the English classrooms which fosters an interest in writing for pleasure as well as for credit. The students of the school produce much excellent creative work.


F. P.Chalmers turned a corner. He quickened his pace as the unkempt individual behind slunk around the same corner, ne\·er once allowing thost' small, Yicious eyes to lose sight of their quarry. �ervously Chalmers shift­ ed his cane from one hand to the other, then returned it to its original position. Inwardly he laughed-such a feeble laugh.If only the boys at the club, those who h�d dubbed him "Fearless Fred", could see him now. Yet risking one's money in the market was far safer than being follo\\"e<l with the threat to kill. And then there was \Villiams, Joe Williams, whom he had broken financially yesterday. \Villiams had friends-the wrong kir\'d. He had laughed eHn when Williams had threatened his life. "There'll be a puff of smoke," the dapper little gambler had said, "and then-well, you'll break no other man as you broke me."

It had sounded too fantastic. And yet, he had left the office early, intending to get a drink at the club, anything to buck him up. He crossed the park.Slowly he bit the end from another monogrammed cigar. He lit it, taking one deep puff of smoke; then, from a bench nearby, deliberately arose this vicious-looking individual. One thought ran through Chalmers' mind."A puff of smoke-then ... " � o ! No! He wasn't being followed. It was mere coincidence.

Yet on he went, turning corner after corner, block after block. Inces­ santly he chewed that same cigar.Suddenly he realized that he didn't care. He had no wife, no child, nothing for which to live. His one god, money, suddenly lost all nlue. Fred Chalmers was beaten. Beaten by one idea. "A puff of smoke-."

It was a different Chalmers, a defeated and weary man, who listlessly let the remains of a lighted cigar fall to the curbing and then stepped into the street. There was a rumbling around the corner, then the shriek of brake3 thrown on too quickly. Slowly a softly-cursing truck dri,·er stepped domi


from his cab. anJ lifted the crumpled body of F. P. Chalmers. The smile on his lips signed that he was once more at peace with the world. Cokey stepped out of the doorway he had appropriated at the first sign of the crash. ''Gosh," he murmured. He hesitated, then stepped forward and quickly stooped o,·er. "Oh, well," he said, "it soives de guy right for makin' me follow him twch·c blocks fur the stub of one measly, four-bit cigar."

Spring was bursting forth in the mountains; the snow was melted on the north side of the valley. Alice could see it from the lookout. Of course there were larger patches _in the shadier places as there had been for the past four lonely years-four very lonely years. Alice thought angrily of the letter that had come from headquarters asking her father to take over the "Birds' Lookout." They had had to hike in four years ago, and e,·en now all of their suppfies were packed in to them. They never even went down to the first ranger station, half way down the mountain. Every morning her father left for his regular round of the lookouts and sh�as used to being alone. She put the last dish in place, slammed the cupboard door, and hummed softly to herself as she made the beds and dusted the three tiny rooms of their cabin. Then, picking up her favorite book, she set out for "Castle Rock", a partially shaded, large, flat rock where· she could spend her long, lonely days overlooking the ,·alley. "Hello," she called lightly.

"Hello," came the answer.

"I'm fine. Are you?" she called back laughingly.

"I'm fine. Are you?" laughed the echo.

"Yes-thank you!" Alice politely answered.

"Yes-thank you!" her respectful echo repeated.

This had gone on ever since the first day she had impulsively shouted "hello" at a passing airplane and heard it reply a gay "hello"-and now she was tired of it.

"Hello," in a melancholy tone returning exactly as she had sent it would invariably cause her to laugh. Then laughter from across the valley would echo and re-echo with her laugh. Weeks passed and Alice became more restless and lonely. She no longer sent her father off with a gay "good-bye'' and a happy smile. She had not been to "Castle Rock" for the past three days but had spent her

time moping ahout the small cabin. Rut she ,vould ha,·e to go this morning, for it ,ns the first day of Spring. She vvalke<l slowly, unconscious of her surroundings, until reaching "Castle Rock," she half heartedly called, "Hello!'' ''l -Tello there," came the answer.

Surprised, she inquired, "Hello?" "Hello there," repeated a Yoice.

"Who are you?" she demanded.

"\Vho are you?" returned a nice young man as he stumbled up the last few yards of the pack trail and stood towering abo,·e her. 'Tm John Parker from the ranger's office." "Oh! I'm Alice and I suppose you came to see father. He is out on

his rounds and won't be back until dinner time."

"Well-if you ·will tell me about where he is, I'll go to meet him."

The summer passed swiftly after the arri,·al of John Parker, for he was sent to help her father. Alice's days were happier and fuller now, for she had to cook for two hungry men instead of one, and there was so much more to talk about. Before she knew it, fall had slipped up on them and John left for civilization to finish his training as a ranger. The days grew shorter and Alice and her father were snowed in for another long winter, Alice, living with her memories of the past summer. She began to notice that it was harder for her father to make the rounds and that hnrften talked of resigning his position. But as the days began to grow warmer again and the snow gradually ciisappeared, she heard this less frequently. Spring approached slowly and their life went on as usual. Xo word had come from outside and Alice wondered.

On the first day of Spring she again went down to her flat rock. "Hello!" she shouted. "Are you still there t"

"Hello yourself," came the echo.

NOW I'LL TELL ONE In the greatest town in the United States, there dwelt a family by the

name of Phadd. The family consisted of Philip Phadd, Ophelia Phadd, and Belinda, their little five year old daughter.

One· night, after a supper of string beans, fried eggs with vinegar, and apple pie, Belinda was attacked with a severe case of colic. Mr. Phadd, according to the tradition of all fond papas, hurried down to get some medicine. The family waited patiently for his return, and finally the little girl became well. But the father never returned.

Ophelia Phadd grieved terribly over her loss and it was almost two weeks before she married again and went to live in Andalusia.

As is una,·oidablc, the young girl grew up into a lo,·ely woman. ln time she married ;\lorris :\Iangecure and in the course of years their little daughter, too, was five years old. One night, by a remarkable coincidence, little Amaryllis ( for that was the little one's name) also had a fit of colic. This happened to be the anni,·ersary of the day when Philip Phadd had disappeared, and so �lorris i\langccure endea,·ored to carry on the tradi-

The child continued to get worse, but still :Vlrs. Mangecure was firm in her demands that he stay at home. Just as the infant was the worst, and the fond parents were in the throes of despair, in stepped Philip Phadd carrying a bottle of medicine. Stepping up to the little girl he gave her a bit of his concoction, which cured her immediately. ,vhe·n the excitement had subsided the astonished parents began to question the old man on his Rip-Van-,Vinkle-like appearance. He grinned sheepishly and replied, "I'm sorry T was late. T missed the bus and had to wait quite a while."

THE \VALTZ YOU SAVED FOR ME "N[y, you dance divinely," he whispered into his partner's ear. The latter smiled up at him, and tightened the arm that encircled -his neck. Hastily he looked around. "There's quite a crowd here this evening, isn't there? They all seem to be watching us, too." Then he smiled, "Oh, well," he murmured, "T don't mind," and drew the other closer.

"I could go on waltzing like this with you forever," was the forth­ coming reply. Slowly the color mounted to his cheeks as he felt the in­ creasing pressure of the other.

Suddenly a hand was roughly clapped upon the shoulder of each. "C'mon and mix it up, you two," said the man in white, "or I'll pitch you both out of the ring."

THI-: \VRECK OF THE HELPLESSNESS or Deserted at the Mast lt was the schooner Helplessness, That sailed the wintry sea. The bride of the skipper had come To bear him company.

Her weight was like the elephant, Her muscles were quite new. The skipper was a little man, His eyes were black and blue.

The skipper stood beside his bride, Ilis heart within his mouth, As he watched a blooming hurricane, That blew now \\.-est, now south.

The wind, it blew so hard upon The north, the south, the west ... "To port," he cried. The bride replied, "Shut up, you little pest."

The storm in all its fury raged, Sad was the skipper's plight, For there without and all about, His spouse would stop his flight.

For 'neath them passed my humble self And trod the platform stair. I turned and faced the audience, Of speech my mind was bare.

In every mode or way; But all of this to no avail. No friend would Ike betray Then one called to his playful mates, "Here•s how to fix this guy; Just really rough the genius up.
