In presenting this edition or El Espiritu for your pleas­ ure and criticism, we wish to call to the attention of those who have nevc1· been on its editol'ial staff, some 01· the cliffi­ cult.ies encountered, some of the plcastu·cs gai11cd. 'l'hc financial prohlcm is the grl'at prnhlcm; upon it. hing­ es the success of the book. 'l'his problem has increased de­ cidedly this year because o[ the one-third advance in the price of the engraving and the rnpid advance in the price of the printing paper, and the pictm·cs. 'fhis difficulty has been overcome largely through thc•saving of incidental expenses, the increase in advertising, a small drop in the amount of cngl'aving, ice c1·ea111 sales, money received as ou,· share ol: the vaudeville, and a clear sheet left by the pl'evious board. 'l'hc other main difficulties arc: getting in the materials of the right kind, at the right time, getting material which will pass the "Board of Censorship"; and molding it into shape for publication. Last, but far from least, is putting out a book which will please the majority in some way, for it js practical­ ly impossible to put out one favomblc in all respects to all. There probably arc those who cannot !'calize the pleasure of being upon an annual board. The pleasure of lying awake night after night ,vondering if the write-ups, the pictures, the engraving, the ads, etc. arc coming all right. 'l'he pleas­ ure of having to make up a quarter's school work, of having the responsibility of El Espiritu devolve upon you, with its many small failures, all helping to retard the final summing up of material, tbe publication. That, in fact is not the pleasure; that is the work. The pleasure starts with a get-together dinner at the editor's house, and after the effects of that have afiParently worn off a trip t.o the mountains; a "grand old trip" to the beach for a few days, where friendship is deepened and more firmly unit­ ed; then a splendid dinnel' at the 11ssistant editor's; and <.'nough money left from our trip to the"beach to warrant a grand "blow out" when the annual is at last spn111g. lt is with a real feeling of sadness that we put down these parting lines, a feeling that comes o,,er those who have been engaged in a common cause; who feel that though they may later meet and ne,,er forget the friendship, and the common cause thus fought for, realize that they must now give their places to others, to w�on� they wish I.he greatest of success and ·who, they hope, will improve npon the high standard set for them, by the :former boards of El Espiritu.


ATHLETICS

This year Claremont has gonC heavily into athletics, more heavily than for several years. ., It has been entirely an up hill fight, a tight with the odds always against us. Yet the fel­ lows wct·c game; the student body was game. They had to bc-· w e had less than haH the number of boys to pick the teams from that some of our competitors had. \Ve had to have the "pep"; we'Ye got to keep it; we've got to get more. \Vas basketball successful 1 Yes, viewed from a sports­ man's point of view, and besides the girls fought into the other section with real spirit. Enough for basketball. Let's start the ball rolling hard next chance. 'l'racl:: Showecl up more 'fhan °bas·1,ct'bart, yet barCl )uc'K per­ sisted. What did we do? We took everything which came our ,vay; we had good distances and speed in our field and track events, but couldn't always bring them out when we should. ,ve bet on Claremont next year. Baseball started up with a rush, but found it had left its foundation. It came down with two sudden jars to find the championship was gone. It reorganized, drove out again, and is up on top to stay, henceforth and for evermore. Tennis is a resmreCtcd sport in C. H. S. ,vc've got the matel'ial on hand and coming. The competition in school and in the league is going to be great, but you watch Claremont "flick them across." The outlook for our athletics next year is brighter than it has been for some time. ,ve lose little mat.e!'ial, we have lots of good material on hand, and sec more coming. ORGANIZATIONS

If you don't think Claremont. High School has organiza. tions enough just look at that section of the annual. At the present rate of fol'ming there will be one apiece in a few years. Their relative worth is a great question, the answers varying in accordance with the society to which the person questioned belongs. A school with a dozen organizations, besides the classes and Student Body, and with an enrollment of slightly ove1· one hundred, cannot expect to get the best service, the best that the person possesses, if that person's time and energy are thoroughly divided among conflicting interests. In fact evel'ything seems to suffer, socials, slcep•-and the aftermath comes in athletics and studies. Look out! "1c smell a mouse. There's discontent in the Faculty!


THANKS Jn parting we take this opportunity of extending our thanks to those who have given their efforts toward making a success of this issue of m Espiritu. 'fo the students who so generously contributed literary material and especially to those whose work, space did not permit us to use, to those girls who so willingly did our art work, and to those who made the yaudcville a financial success. Above all to the students and faculty who all, in some way, large or small, contributed to and rorwarded the work, and to the ach¡cstiscrs wlio make this book possible, we extend the thanks of the El Espiritu Board de 1916.

lirlic Assndntcit �tuitcnfs The past year has been one of reorganization and adjust­ ment. \Vith the expansion of ou1· athletics into different brnnches, t.he executive commit1ee has hce11 faced with the problem of financing our teams without drawing too heavily upon the student body f'or assessments. By quarterly dues, together with the funds that have been secured from clt·amatic ente!'tainmcnts, we have been able to do this and have pur­ chased such additional equipment as has been within our means. At the present time the outcome of the baseball sea­ son is doubtful, but it is quite 1nohahle that we will not only pay all existing oblig·ations, hut also lean! an amount that will make it possible for the next yca1·'s team to have the suits that arc so much needed. 'l'he Student Body Office which Mr. Palmer set aside for us at the beginning of the year has given us a place in which the students have been free to hold committee meetings and in which the members of the Annual Board and the Executive Committee might ·work. A regular system of bookkeeping has been inaugurated and before the end of the year we hope to have the high school constitution revised, putting it on a wol'king basis. ln other than mere routine matters, chang'cs have been made. 'l'he student hotly meetings, thougl1 rather infrequent, ban shown a freedom of discussion ·which has not been pres­ ent before. The willingness of the student body to support their representatives was demonstrated in the meeting in which it was decided to keep our baseball team in the league. A series of unforeseen, and in a large measure, unavoidable oc­ currences have, unfortunately, resulted in the defeat of our teams, yet we have every reason to feel proud of those who represented us. Athletic teams take time to develop. Only by consistent training can this be accomplished. \Ye that are in the school at present must be wiHing to lend our sup­ port. to our teams in order that in coming seasons Claremont High may win. It is the hope and intention of the Executive Committee to leave the student body financially unhampered, and so or­ ganized that it will be possible for our successors to build up­ The outlook for the com­ on the foundations already laid. ing year promises a successful athletic and dramatic season. One thing and one thing only will insure the fulfillment of that promise, namely cooperation. Remember that you are a member of the student body. Do your share. Assume your burden of the responsibility. '!'hen we shall have that unani­ mity of spirit which will make even greater things possible for Claremont High School. G. E. SANFORD, '16

W:qe Boice of a Biolitt The great house on the cliff o,·erlooking ihe o•Je;.111 stood open 10 the cool ai1· of the summPt· e,·Pning, lights stt·camcd from the windows, and the rnurnrnr ot' many \'Oiccs, broken now and then by laughter and music came from within. The Crawford family was leaving in two days for 1!:111·opc, and this was the last gathering of all thei1· l"l·icnds lwf'ut·c t.hcit· dcpnrturc, for they would not return for two years. The noise and laugl1ter continued for a little time, and then, with one accord ceased. The slight figul'C of a gid or sixteen had risen, and bh1shing a li1tlc shyly, she had made bc1· way to the piano ...,d1c1·c she took down a Yioli11 nnd began to tune it. Softly, at. fit-st, she began to play; then, as if �aining in confidence, the music swelled out st.-on1?er and !-lrnngcr. Trembling on the air ii noatcd out. into the summc1· night and the whole world seemed to hold its bt·eath a11d listen. Fol' the violin was speaking, spcaki11g in its own to11gue, and those who listened [elt an inexpressible thl'ill run tl11·011gh them as the music thl'Obbed and flowed on. "1hen·it ceased, fo1· two Joni-\' seconds not a sound was heard, and then, as if from a hundred people, instead of' twenty, the applause l'8lli:( out and testified thcit· app!'eciation 'l'hcl'c was one person, howcvcl', who did not shat·e in the ice\ings of the company; Jimmie Crawfol'd, the youngest of the family, and the only boy, alone felt no joy al th<' sound o[ the music. He was a ralher moody, quiet hoy and did not lo,·e music, much less company, but he IO\"£:d to be nlnne, guid­ ing his swif:t sailing yacl1t over the waves. So he had slipped away from the house, and now stood motionless gazing out o,·er the wate1· and feeling a,,; if there we1·e no joy left in the world. He heard the music of the ,·iolin, but it did not speak to him. Ile heard thc applause that followed, and gl'Oaned inwardly. Thlrty-th,·ee


What if his sister could play the violin, what if she had composed the music he had just heard; he didn't Wllnt to go to Eu1·opc and part from his little yacht, just because she and the rest of I.h e gids wanted to study and trot aroun-:l looking at the ancientbuildings and wandel' th1·ough endless galleries o[ pictnl'cs! Tnte, it was something he had never lwfore ex­ perienced 01· seen-but two yca!'s! Tomonow, hr, realized, was his last day and last chance to enjoy the freedom he loved, so he pla1111cd fo1· a long day. 'l'he ,·oice of someone calli11g, roused him from his thoughts. Turning, he sa"- that the company wasbl'eaking up and that he must go hack and say guod-bye; the thought made him want to. rebel,but he obediently turned and went. Kcxt morning he rose early, put 011 his clothes, scorning shoes, lrnt not fo!'gctting to fake a big package of lunch, for like most boys he had a tender t·egard for his stomach; then he slipped down to the dock, a hundred yards from which his yacht lay moored to abuoy. Some fishermen hailed him, for he was wcll-knowu among them, and they were good friends. Abreeze was blowing gently, aud soon ,Jiinmh: cast off and glided out befoi·e it. Setting his cotll'se straight. out, he sailed for a long way, and then turned up the coast. All day he sailed, now up the coast, now down, at times almost los­ ing sight of the low-lying shore. 'l'owanl aU.crnoon the wind changed and hlcw toward shore, freshening· until a stiff breeze wasblowing-. '.l'his was what .Jimmie had expected, and he knew that it. wrr., now time to go home, for he was many miles away, so, tuming his cotu·sc, he flew bcfoi·e the wi11d. Upon turning hack toward home all his thoughts of the pl'evious night came back to him, and he began to feel that his fun was almost o,·ct·. He became completely lost in his thoughts and gave little heed to· his sunoundings or where he was go­ ing. He had forgotten that "eternal vigilance is the price of safety at sea," and did not notice that the direction of the breeze had changed slightly and that the boom was s-winging dan!-('el'ously close in. Suddenly the wind caught the sail on the other side, and theboom swung across. Jimmie saw it coming jus1 in tirne to th1·0\1· up his arm to protect his head, when it stt'uck him, knocking himbackward into the water. flis first sensation was more of surpl'ise than alarm, but when he came to the sul'face and saw the boat yards away, and mov­ ing swiftly hefui·c the wind, he realized that there was little liope for him. I-Te was a -flue swimmer, but he realized that that was of little avail as he was fi[teen or twenty miles from shore. For three hours he swam and floated, barely paddling tlJ keep up and save his strength. 1'l1e sun was sinking low, and he was numb with cold nnd rapidly becoming exhausted. �uddenly Thlrty-rou,


he heard a long whistle. His hopes leaped up, and 1·ising as far as he could from the waler, as he went up on the next swell, he strained his eyes in the direction of the sound, and saw at some distance what appeared to be a coasting steamer. He knew that there were many wliich traveled up and down the coast, and he had been praying that one would come along. l lis prayer seemed to have been answered, hut. when she drew 11carer he saw that she was not one of the 1·cgula1· boats, but a shabby, slow-moving ti·amp steamer. I-Towe,·cr, hv was in no position to be finicky about the looks of the ship. As soon as she came within call he beg-an to whistle and shout with all his might, waving one arm above the surface. Someone on board had either heard or seen him, for the vessel slopped, a boat was put out, and Jimmie was taken on board in a semi-conscious state. He passed from this co11di1ion into an exhausted sleep, from which he awoke some ten or twelve hours later. He found himself in an ill-smelling cabin, with several da1·k, dirty men al'ound him, all jabbering in some unknown tongue. As he moved they ceased talking and watched him intently. Then one who seemed to be the leader approached, and tried to question him, but Jimmie could neither under­ stand him nor make himself understood. He felt rather weak and wobbly and was content to stay \vhere he was for the time being. 'l'he inhabitants of the ship brought him food and coal-black coffee, which in spite o( many objections, he was able to swallow, afterwards feeling much better and very grate­ ful to his rescuers. As they were so well disposed toward him he concluded that he was not as badly off as he h11.d at first thought. The men were all Yery curious about him, but be­ ing no better versed in English than the captain had been, they could satisfy neither their own curiosity nor Jimmie's. Although he had had very little experience wit'h foreign­ ers, Jimmie rightly judged these men to be Italian fishermen. They seemed to have a Cull cargo, as one· glance at the hold testified. What it was, he could easily guess, but where they were bound for he could not tell, for the course was now due east. They travelled slowly, for the ship's engines, like ev­ erything else on board, appeared to be out of order half the time, and the marine growth on the bottom and sides of the hull, which had accumulated through wanton neglect, caused the ship to move as i( she were water-logged Jimmie did what he could to help, which was chiefly to wash dishes and aid the cook in his various duties. The rest o( the time he spent either sitting by himself watching the CIHi less expanse of watel' or playing with a small dog which he found on board. Both being very lonely, tlu�y found each other sgreeablc companions.


Jimmie often thoug-ht sadly of his home and parents; he knew what their· thoughts would ho, and longed for the time to conw when he would sec thcrn·again, if that time were e,·er destined to come. He wondcl'cd what had become of his yacht, whether it was ,necked or safe. Still the boat ernwlcd slowly on. They passed no other ships close enough to allow them to signal, and ewn if they had .Jimmie doubted the ability of the men to do so. ·Meanwhile, in the Crawfo1·d home consternation and sor­ t·ow reigned. ]!]rs. C1·awfoi-d was hove1·i11g 011 the vc1·ge of a. ne.-vous bi-eakdown within a [cw dars. The father and girls were terribly stricken, and their Sorrow manifested it­ self in t.heii- pale laces as day after day passed. Jimmie, al:ter a week of tir·eless searching, was �inm up for lu�i. His boat had been found, and thi., confirmed the belief that he had been drowned. A . earcful search of the surface of the ocean for miles a1·ou11d, and an unceasing watch along shore failed to renal his body. 'l'hcn l\lr. Crawford, realizing the utter [utility of the search, and seeing his wife in such a condition, i-r,solved to take his family away from the place whci-e I.hey had exper­ ienced such disasler, and to tran!l, hoping in this way to leave their sonow behind. So after two weeks had passed, instead of two days, the heart.-hl'okcn l"amily sailed fol' Eut·uJH!. 'l'o Jimmie, as the niisei·ahle tuh poked on, it seemed that yeai-s had passed since he had left home, but in reality only about eighteen cklys had �one by. On the mo1·11ing of the ninct.eent.h day he awt.ke early and peeped through an. open port. Thick fog met his gaze, and he could sec barely twenty yards ahead o[ him. He had hoped he would sec land today, for he had seen the captain and anothei- man po111·i11g over some maps, 1alking rapidly, and gesticulating towa,·d the cast, but e,·idently his hopes were not to be [ulfilled As he lay thiukin�, he heard a low pu1Ting S0lllld; he started, sat up, and listened 1 Suddenly from above there came a wild shriek, then a terrific crash and rending 01 planks. He was thrnw11 from his bunk, and the ship keeled l'a1· o,·cr on its side. 111• picked himselr up, and as he n1slwd up the stairs he h�anl the pounding of tcet, and 1cnified cries mingled with the hoa1·se screaming or a g1·cat whistle. When he reach­ ed the deck, fully d1·esscd, foi- he slept in his clot.hes, he saw, looming above him in 1he grey mist, the great pr,1w of an ocean liner, which had struck the tramp-steamer amidships and had almost cut hci- in two. There wet·c only two boats, and they were smashed hy the collisio11. ·when he saw this he wasted no time, but l'On to the side and leaped far out into the water. "1hcn he came to the surface he swam a,\ ay frnm 'J'hlrty-$lx


the sinking ship, shouting all the time. Soon he heard an answering call and a life boat almost rnn over him in the fog. He was hauled in, and immediately they set abor,t search­ ing for others. Six were found and fiye were missing, probably killed in the collision. Friendly hands assisted thew up the ladder and they were given dry clothing and hot food . . Jimmiewas closely questioned, but could tell nothing of the boat, except what he had learned himself dui-iug his en­ fot·ced stay on boai-d. One young sailor took a friendly intei-est in him ,rnd went out. of his way to speak to him. He informed Jimmie that they were nearing the Strait of Gilnalt.er, t.hroug·h which they would presently pass. Jimmie felt inexpi-cssibly 1·eliend by being able to speak to someone who could understand, and soon he had told his whole history t.o his new-found friend. He stayed all day in the sailor's quartci-s and filled himsPli' with food which he thought was fit for a king, and dra11k pmc water until he felt he could hardly stand Toward cYcning he went on deck with his fr!end. 'l'hc passengers were all at supper, and he learned that they were going to have a big time down thei-e lat.er, as the journey would soon draw to a close, and they would pHt for their Yai-ious destinations. Jimmie heard the clatter of dishes and murmtH of conve1·sation from below, and he was ct1rious to see the people, but his friend told him the sai!ol"S wci-e ncnt· allowed below decks without special pcrmis�on. Then came the sound of music and dancing, and ,Jimmie felt his old feeling toward such doings comin/! buck again. Then someone sang, and was encored again and again. A piano took up the entertainment, and then a yiolin began. ,Jimmie was almost asleep by this time, but he came to, as the Yiolin music brought back the picture of his home, and tears carne into his eyes. Yes, he would probal)ly sec them again, but when 1 He could hai-dly co11t1·0] hirnself as h� thought ol: the time that must pass before that union could take place. The applause from below scallcr-ctl his thoughts He tumed to his silent companion, smiled faintly, and stal"lcd to speak, hut the wol'ds stuck in his thi·oat. .F'i-om below came the music of the \'iolin playing an cnco1·e. There was rnmething strangely familiar in the sound, and he began to tremble Yiolently. Then he stiffened and jumped to his feet. It \\"as! He knew it! 1t was the voice of his sister's Yiolin, and it seemed to be calling, calling to him. Blindly he turned, and before his friend could speak or intercept him he had plunged down the stairway. �John Ri�h, '17. Thlrt;--se\"en


Upon �nting n mtirougti i!trnin "7ith a roar like the tides of the ocean In a cavern rocky and low, 'rhe limited train is coming; You can heal' the hoarse whistle blow. For only a moment it lingers, '!'he quick, ebon porte1· leaps down; From windows look numberless strangers, With int ',·esiCd gaze or dark frown. On the platform our friend is standing, The train is now well under way; ·with smiles full of mute understanding She is borne from our sight away. Fast speeds the limited, thundering On its way from a summer clime, To lands "-·here it may be snowing, And surely is winter-time. Oh, what burdens of human sonow ! And what a wealth of human joy! What hopes for a fair tomorrow! Are home in this huge mortal toy! May comfort meet sad and benighted, :May we find a welcoming friend, All hopes be fully requited, \Vhen each comes to his journey's end. -Laura A. Pell, '16

" Cliff evidently was excited to a high dcgTce. lc was a tall, big, good-looking, but rather careless young- fellow, ol ' high school-senior age There was a ,·im and go 2-hout Cliff Richards which cont.inually ut·gcd him to keep going- :�nd oc­ cupy his timc with something. .lie \\'aS rnthc1· wild mid wns n?t on �ry good terms with the school tcac\ie1·s 01· 10w11 tlig-­ n1tal'ie� TTc was one ol' t.hc leadcl's ol' a crowd ol° youni.:-: rioters in the town. It seemed as !hough, at times, the small town could not hold Cliff and his chum Bob Dou!!las, they were so full or or·iginal escapades. Indeed the high school had just decided it could not hold theni for the 1nesent Cliff longed for excitement and real sport. ''Cook here Bob, let's show 'cm a thing , 01· two. l ..et's get out, and go where something h:.1ppcns. . Bob looked up, "Yes, I know how you feel, b11t wha1 's lhe use.

'l'he more Cliff talked the gloo.mier Uob becamt'. "No Cliff you slrnll not. Stick it out_ here, get 1hi-ough this year, then i[ you want to, why go. I am about all in myself, but we can fix ii all i·iµ-ht with the liid nrnn, and say, deacon, you know you',·c got an c1wfully decent mother." "Aw cut it out, Bob," gi-owlcd Clift'.

"Bob Douglas, arc you goin{! to play \iahy 01· come wi1h me? �[y mothet''S all 1·i!!ht, and I can send her a l:'.!t.tcr from Uncle Will's.'' In the end Boh yielded, aS he always did, and they planned theit· dcpat·ture. Both had plent.v of spending mone�·. along wit.h what lhey earned, so they were nut troubled about that. One night, a ,yeck lat.er, two young men start.rd on lhc car for the nearby· city. '!'hey told thcit· parents thc.v intend­ ed to stay there all night to attend some social function. 'l'hcfr nerves were quiYedng, the \Yest drew t.hcm, and glory in ::\lexico was tlw goal. In the city they procur('cl ticke1s fo1· 'l'cxas. ?\fen of affair·s they were, now. Clifl: wai,; exult.­ ant, Bob just a t1·iflc IH!U\"Y hearted. .Dur·ing their journey they planned and cheered each other h.v tums. Clil'f's spirits soared. He beamed on Boh, and did his utmost tn be the most cheerful and noisy person in the ca1·. CliH ensily made friends, and �omchow there was a charm about him which drew people to hirn. Ire quickly banished the morning grumps from Bob and talked gaily over their breakfast. "I sure hope Jes gets that letter I wrote last Tuesday," remarked Cliff. "lfe will be at the st.at.ion with a buckboai·d, I suppose. I'm going to round up a few of those cow punch­ ers and have 'cm give me pri,·ate instmctions in the art of riding bronchos. And 1hen, whoop! we're at'ter thr: 1\[ex. ,von't it look swell in the Daily Gazette 'Cliff Hichal'(h, prom­ ine11t youn� man of this city who left for ::\fexico, receives hono1· for b1·a,·e1J· in field at-- '" Cliff subsi(led into a reYcrie. Bob gri11ned. He was secretly thinking that there would be somebody's name besides young Richardt' in the "Daily Gazette." At last the train drew up to a tin.r station. Box cars, serYing- as houses, adorned the sides of the trnck. A one­ l'Oom shack was t.hc station. Beyond st.retched sage brush, with now and then s1rips of cultivated land, dotted at large intervals with tiny shanties. 'l'his was the town of Silver· Flat. The boys stood at t.he station, suit. cases in h.'.l.nd, look­ ing after t.he receding train. They hacl done it! Forty


"Say," asked Bob, "where's that dear cousin of Something was wrong with Cliff's temper. the letter I reckon," he snapped. "\Vell, l suppo,:e we can walk.'' '''Vhich direction¥'' Bob seated himself 011 his suit case. Just then a tall lanky man appeared in the doonv<Jy. "\Val, youngstcvs, who be ye lookin' fed Going to ti·y yer lnck, too?" Cliff whided. ''What luck? Jam looking for· f1T1·. Rich­ ards. Does he live 'round herd" The man laughed. "'Vhy yes, jest a piece dauwn that way, "he answered pointing, "not more than fiye rnile." Bob gasped. ".For the love of me1·cy !"he exclaimed, "and these shoes hurt like-" ''Aw, come on,'' commanded Cliff and strorle off down the road. Bob followed painfully. About every half mile, they stopped and rested, as Boh's foot troubled him. On the fourth mile, the stock ot' energy was about ''petered,'' as Bob expressed it. Their mouths were d1·y, and U1ey were covered with the thick dust.. 'T'he heat was scorching. "Say!" came a feeble wail from Bob, "See ::!11:V ?iicxi­ cans7" A disgusted grunt came back. "Well they had bet­ ter �tay away just now, 01· our· pictures won't be in the 'Daily Gazette', with honors." Finally a long, low adobe 1·anch house appeared, then other adobe buildings, suno1mding it. Beyond lay a vista of cultivated land and flourishing· crops. lt \\ as a center oJ business activities. l\fany people could he seen hut·rying to and fro, and everyone seemed busy at something. Nearer, they stopped to look about. Ac!'CS o[ all kinds or c;i·ops lay bc[oi·e them, beans pl'e<lominat.ing. Farther on, herds of cat­ tle grazed in a hug·e enclosure. Suddenly Cliff's mouth flew open in a g·asp of :istonish­ mcnt. Bob looked. 'l'hel'e, steadily moving dO\\"tl the fields, machines of. every so1-t doing ,,·or·lc _'.l'rucks 1·an her·e and and not. a single horseman could be seen, except two lone men het·ding a bu11ch of cattle. Modern impr11\·emcnts on every hand, nothing western or wild looking anywhcl'c. Running about were peons, clad in loose g:ai-ments of white cotton. Great sombr·eros bobbe(1, ba1·c feet pattet·cd. Slowly the boys made their way towat·d the maii, house, until suddenly accosted by a freckled-faced, lneezy yonngste1· of se\·cnteen, "Oh, is this cousin Clifl'? 1 'm Jf's. You actual­ ly came did you?" Cliff stopped,'''{ cs I'm Cliff. Didn't you g'Ct my letter?'' Jes laug·hed. "Sure I did, glnd to see you.

Befot·e them, in a big 1"00111, sat. a big man at a big desk. He was cYidcntly the "boss." 1-1� directed with b<lth hands and his voice. I-le was a rather shrewd hard faced rnP.n, with a huge mustache and bushy hair. He glanced up, as Cliff and Bob entered and threw up both hands. ''Somu more'? ,vho ar·c you'? Are they sending all the kids in the count.1·v down here for us to take <.are off You're numhcr twenty in ·the last week.'' "J atn your 11ephcw, Cliff Richal'ds and this is my friend Bob Douglas," Yolu111cei-cd Clil'I'. ''Well, I'll be husted! You too! I thought one of the Hichat"ds had mor·c sense. But since you 'r·e here, I can put you to work all l'ig-ht." He turned them o,·cr to a-wizened little old )[exican, with orders, and dismissed them. They followed aftci- the 11exican who showrd them to. a Lilly room with a cot. He curtly bade them hm;tlc, poco tiempo, out to the fields. 'l'hcy WtJre giv(-:"n wot·k in the field, and they ha<\ no time to think or look al'ound t.o enjoy themselves. A foll day took all ambition out. They wel'e too pl'oud to gin in or ',!rumble and so they worked quietly beside .\[exicans and white men. One day the monotony was bl'Oken. 'l'hcy wc1·c to go with men and tl'Ucks of supplies to a garrison ftu·ther south. As the lime th·ew near, and c,·crybody was talking of bandits, and arming themseh-es for the journey, somehow the boys' enthusiasm \\'aiw..cl. Hard, unaccustomed labot· had sohercd the boys and laid 1·cspo11sibility on their shoulders. ,Just as the cavalcade entered a wooded portion of land, one of the tl'ucks bt"Okc down. 'l'hcy wCl'C compcllccl to put its load upon the other trucks and leave it behind until th . c l'Cturn journey. So the two boys were left to gunrd the tl'uck. They we!'C stationed where a young :Mexican boy of their own age lived. He was a bright, ene1·gctic, little fellow, and did his best to make them comfol'tablc. 'l'hey f,nmd his name was Pablo. That evening, as they sat about the camp­ fil'C, just outside Pablo's small hut, the boys thought of home, and Pablo watched thern with his soft black eyes. At last he spoke, and told them of how the ·Mexican bandits had l'Ob­ hed him ol' father, mother, and hl'ot . hel's. He asked them why the Amel'iean gentlemen came down to that unhappy countr·y, when they had e,·c1·ythin1,r they wished in thci1· ho11,es. He could not talk plainly, and he gesticulated and illu�h·ated his sp�cch in many nide ways. "l\·o sabc to make letters or rca<L" How he long-eel to go t.o an Amcr·icnn school 01· have t.he schools and afh-antages for his people. How much the A111et'ican seiioi-s must know. He had no pesos to go to school lrn1 he hoped maybe someday.


Cliff and Bob stared at him, then looked sheepishly away. Tf he only knew how ignorant they really were, and how little they appreciated schools or civilization Finally Bob said, "Cliff, J believe he's right, l guess we've got side-tracked and pulled the wrong switch." "\Vell I don't know," said Cliff slowly. He was nut will­ ing to give up his ship just there. "�Iaybe we 're rat.her- ." '' Sh-h-h,'' came a warning from Pablo. The boys start­ ed, then tµrned cold with dread. They listened, tbrn Pablo motioned toward the hut. They all mn swiftly and quietly in, and barred the door. Looking out they saw, e1,1erging from the copse of trees, a dozen stealthy figures. Cliff gripped Boh's hand. "\Yell, they arc after the truck, but that busted one won't do 'cm much good,'' he mut­ tered. "That's not all they are after," whispered Boll, grimly. The bvo young fellows looked each other in the eye. "Bob" said Cliff earnestly, "we've been fools, Pa.blo was right!'' The figures outside were creeping closer. One, moi·e cur­ ious than the rest, slid up to the buik!jng to innstigate. Pablo's rusty old rifle sounded, and the man utten!<l a cry, as he leaped back to his fellows. Aftei; that there was plenty of excitement. The rifle trembled so in the boy's hands they failed to find a vital mark. Then, mercifully, a volley o( shot rang out from th south. Consternation reigned among the marauders, then ('.Onfusion and death. The United States tt"oops were looking f:H· trucks too, and also something else. 'l'hc three in the hut sank ex­ hausted to the floor. Wben they were telling their story lo the circle or inter­ ested soldiers they left no praise unsounded for Pahlo. He had saved them and their gZ"atitude overwhelmed him. ''And," said Cliff, standi,pg straight, with eye:, g·listen­ ing, "l 'm going home and 1nake a real man o.£ mysdL I've learned what appreciation of civilization and school really is. Then if I get the chance ] 'm coming Lack to help Pablo l1et·e, and his people." Bob straightened also. "'Yell, 1 am going to rnn you a mighty tight race, and break the tape fil'st, or die trying, ?,.Ir. Clirf Richards. Shake please.'' -Lutie Carpenter. 'J 7.

FRESHMAN JOLLY-UP.

If you want to have some fun, just the YCI')' time of your life, be a Freshman. Jt's easy! And then come to the Prcsh­ man Jolly-Up! '!'hat's the place for fun, especially when there arc elves, and J'airics, and sailors, and cowboys, and every other kind of creature, on all sides, and you don't know your best friend from your worst enetuy. But you 'II learn to know them in time. Just play the games and eat the good things that there al'c plenty of, and don't think of your Latin lesson! FRESHMAN-SOPHOMORE PARTY.

The minute yo1i arrived through a window, at Esther Smith's, you felt spooky. Dul'i11g the rest ot: the evening you ate apples, read your fortune, honeymooned, and trackmcetcd. Some excitement! Until, alas, time to·· go home. THE RING.

It was a ring, a ring thnt seemed to have a habit of slip­ ping away; and they had to hunt high and low and persuade all the neighbors to help them, only to find that they had made a big mistake of the whole thing, and that the ring was neither· lost, strayed, nor stolen, but just taken, to tease them. You would ha,·e known how they felt if you had seen the Bing giYen in assembly by the membel"s of Lambda Delta Kappa. 'l'he one who lost it, and the one who took it., and those who hunted for it and sympathized with the losers were: Fifty-five

FRESHMAN SPREAD

Of course the Freshmen had to have some way to recover after that ter-rif-ic pulling of the tug of war. Their recovery took the form of a spread at the high school. Everyone had plenty to eat and a fine time. (So did the Seniors, who seem to take a paternal interest in the doings of the Freshmen.)

DELTA SIGMA-WITENAGEMOT

On November 20, Delta Sigma entertained ¡witenagemot with a "rally party". '£he first feature of the evening was a debate. The question was: "It ls Better To Be Rich Than Lucky". 'l'he affirmative was upheld by Jack Rich, and the negative by Joe Caldwell. Jt \\"as a tie. Next Mr. Gardner moved the audience to tears by his touching performance of an opera, rumored to be original. Spirited target-practice followed, and after such exercise ice-cream certainly tasted good.


ORCHESTRA PARTY The first orchestra party of the year was held at the home of the Ol'gani:.mtion 's president, Edyth Ernst, on the evening of Decemhet· JO, 1915. Each member brought his instrument and the first part of the eYcuiug was devoted to practice, af­ ter which musical games were played. After this refresh­ ments were served.

BASKETBALL PARTY

'J'hc basketball teams finished the season by giving a party. First, the boys and girls held separntc meetings and chose their captains fot· next year. Then games \Vere played, and refreshments eaten in the dining room. After several pei·sons had spoken on the basketball outlook for next year it was announced that the new captains were Nettie Sturges, and Eugene Platt.

JUNIOR-SENIOR PARTY.

"That was the most 01·iginal lever attended," remarked a Senior g-irl after the ,Tunio!'-Senior party. Jt was! From the "show" to the "pate de fois gras" the whole evening was full of suspense as to what would happen next. First came the Senior "Blow-out", pl'Ogram which included sever·al beau­ tiful orchestra numbers by llfossrs. Allen, Vaile, and Gardner. There followed games which pt·oved to the satisfaction of everyone ( 1) the musiCal ability of the Seniors. Aft.cl' the grand march the party enjoyed refreshments "restaurant style."

ORCHESTRA PARTY

The orchestra does not believe in devoting its entire time to the study of music. They arc firm believers in the adage: "All work and no play makes ,Tack a dull boy," so they have attempted to break up the monotony by having frequent parties. One of the most enjoyable of these was held at Charlie Vaile's on January 7th. Much of the evening was devoted to performing on var­ ious odd and peculiar instruments and after llr. Flinspach was proclaimed star of the evening, delicious refreshments of punch and sandwiches were served.

ORCHESTRA PARTY. The orchestra enjoyed anot11cr delightful party in 1.-,eb­ ruary, this time in honor of St. Valentine. '1'o make the oc­ easion merrier they invited outside guests. As this is leap year the young ladies thought they would escort the young men. They finally decided, however, that owing to the ex­ eessive distance some would have to travel, it would be better to decide upon a meeting place nearer the center of activities. Finally after one or tv,ro narrow escapes, the crowd as11cmbled at the High School. After playing games they ad­ journed to the cooking room. Here refreshments of brick ice cream and small cakes were served. 'l'hen all went di­ rectly (?) home. PHILOMATHIA-WITENAGEMOT PARTY. At the high school on the Mesa When the moon was shining brightly Gathered there a band of ,varriors, Gathered there a group of mai.<lens ,velcomed by the Philomathia. Sat around the council fire Listened to the sage discussion Listened to the wise debaters Pledged they then their faith forever Peace between the maids and warriors Friendship, of the Philomathians Pledged to maids of ,vitenagcmot. LAMBDA DELTA KAPPA. "Is it a really truly party, or just a joke7" ,vas the question asked by the members of Lambda Delta Kappa when they received notice of a social meeting on April Fool's Night. But on arrival their fears were allayed, for it was a sure enough party, and a ve1·y meny one at that. The great­ er part of the evening was spent playing baseball-not as shocking as i.t sounds, however, for both winne1·s and losers were fully able to enjoy the refreshments served at the close.

HIGH SCHOOL ORGANIZATiON PROGRAM In order that the high school inight know more of the purposes and present work o! its organizations a program was arranged in which aH of the societies took part. As rep­ resentative of the Philomathia Debating Society, Clarence Stover explained the aim of the club, and a quartet sang two numbers. Their stunt ended by the singing of the Philomathia song by all the members. 'l'hc history of the Lambda Delta Kappa society was then told in a very interesting way by Helen l\IcCall. Lois Peck next explained what is means to be a Camp-fire girl, after which members of the Camp-fire show­ ed a ceremonial meeting. Then Delta Sigma was represented by Dec De Lapp, who told of its aims; and by Eugene Platt, who gave a very amusing reading. "\Vitcnagcmot then gave an illustl'ation of a de\?ate, which was very life-like. Kappa Tau gave a pretty racket drill after Halstead White had told the reason for the founding. of the society, and what has been done this ycal'. Every number of the program was exceedingly interest­ ing, and at its conclusion everyone knew a great deal more about the high school organizations.

PHILOMATHIA

Philo111athia has just completed one of hc1· mo�t success­ ful years. She has established a standar·d ol' debating that is hard to equal, has 11pheld her i-cputation as a great cnter­ tainci-, witlial keeping up the Philomathia traditions. ·when the new yeat· t·ol\cd arnund \\"C thought it best to inei-euse our mcmber·ship, so we took in three 1''i-eshmen, nnd agnin, later Sixty-two


in the year, one Fl'eshman and a Sopho11101·e. All of them were put through the mill wi1h as little russ and m1dt;C' worry as possible. We fonned a tenm to deha1e with Delta Sig-ma, hut the lat­ ter fot·l'citcd to Philomathia, so we did not have a chnnce to show them that 1\·t· had a "\\"ot·ld Beater." After 1he for­ feiture by Della Sigma, 1m had to be content with " 1 ,t•ppy" debates within the society. In addition, 1\·e held ai: open meeting and in\'ited "-ritcnagcmot, ihe gids' dchating society to he ou1· guests. We furnished them with a good deh;itc and still bettet· "cats," al'ter which the me<'tini::r 11·as adjoui·nNL Next, Philomathia put up a bulletin board in study-hall, and many were the co1·ci-t µ-lances cast in its diteetion, and many there wel'e who turned a second time to look at its superb ,vorknrnnship. A . f1c1· this, Philomathia held a hi'! "Double Hendel'", lL hay t·iclc and pat·ty at the Stu1nt Inn, which was pl'onounccd a huge success by those fo1·tunnlt• enoug-h to at.. tend.

It was pleasant for the girls, at any ..ate, for all the boys had to kiss the Blarney Stone . The party fo1· Philomathia was a jolly one, for enn H there were such euuutc1·-attr·aclions as reyi\·als, senio1· plays, and 'melting pots'' the Sophomores and Freshmen were out in full force. Our members believe that ·witenagemot is one d the best of the many societies, for there is no clement of snobbishness, and no foi·ming of cliques. Any Junior o·i, Senior girl may become a membe1·, and be sut·e of a hearty welcome and a jolly good time. -.-Mildred D. :1\fcCall, '17. 4

KAPPA TAU

Kappa Tau was oi-ganizcd at the hcginning uf the school year· fur- 1hc pul'posc of encouraging tennis.playing, and also to [o1·1t1 a uniti11g bond between the val'ions e.lasscs, in a pui-cly social way. In looking hack ovu1· 1he year, we :feel that the organiim. tion has made a g"\!Od strfrt. towanl accomplishing its JJ\11·posc, for du1·i11g this year· Cln1·ernont has played moi·e tr-!inis than ever before in i1s history. In tournaments with ot.hc1· schools we have upheld the good name o( Claremont llig!i '3chool, aud in ou1· own home t.ournamcnt we ha\·e prnduc(•d many players who give promise of becoming stars. We arc acti,·c socially, having had 11umerous socials and parties both at the High School, and at the homes .,r ,·a1·ious mcmbct·s. Perhaps the best one of all was the big mid-ycal' banquet that the girls ga\·c us, wl�ich was "class". spelled with a capital" K." lucludcd in the l'est, was a pa1·ly at the home of )Ir. J. 0. Van Zandt on )[ountain ann..e, which turned out to be an cnjoyahlc affair; a party at th� home of Miss Palmet·, and also a delightful wiener roast or supper in the Wash in Apl'il. Anothct· achievement of the yeal' was ·the springing of a humt-wood sign-boat·d in the Study Hall, whe1·c it slcrnds to hold the notices ot' the club. The tennis COlllt, after mucJ1 labor, has been convcl'tcd into one of the best in I.own, and we ha\·c reason to bclicYC that next year it will be the scene of many fast games, for, al­ though we do not aspire to the state championship, we will do out· best. -David Maynard, '18.

i!ilasket i!ilall. DAISY ERNST, Captain CLARENCE STOVER, Captain After such a peppy season as that o[ 1914, we r·cBlizc that basketball has come to be the leading game in Clarcn10111 High School. The previous season has shown us that putting out a team that can win games is by no means an impossibility, and we have demonstrated to almost every school in the league, in most cases to theil' sorrow, that Cla1·cmont is right thei·e on the job when it comes to putting up a hard fight. The season's outlook was vel'y good at first, espeeially for the boys, as they had lost only one membct· by graduation. After serious practice was begun the te!lms fast rom1ded into shape and were playing a hard, steady g·amc, which made our chances fot· the championship look almost as bright as liist year, when Coach Davies directed us. But then came tllf: news that the season had been postponed until Deeembel'. This, with other happenings, among which was an epidemic of the grippe which took Captain Stover out of the game, erippled the boys' team badly. 'l'he Bonita boys had not as st,·ong a team as last year, and Claremont, in a hard garne, defeated thern by a scor·e or 23-13. 'I'he Bonita girls, however, were doped as SU!'e winners over Claremont, and right there was where they w1!n• fooled. Our girls came through with such a fast brand of basketball that the Bonita girls were fol'ced to admit wl1cther they want­ ed to 01· not, that they had been heatcn by a better team. 'I'he " score was 17-14.


The prospects v;crc some. what bl'il,!'htcncd Ly these Yie1orit•s, which as yet were 11011e 100 good, as StoYet· was �·till out 1111d Cit ms, our next cumpe1ito1·, and deadly i·iy. al, was 1·cpot·tcd as l1aving exceptionally st.rong teams. 011 Satul'day, December 11.

The Cit1·us gids C\·idently thought bright.colo1·cd suits were essential to winning, a11d thercfot·c appeared i n bright poppy-color, which not only a11t·acted, but also badly injut'cd the i•ycs of the hcholdcl's.

a!radt §easnn. CALVIN SUGG, Captain After the basketball season closed a bricl: lapse ensued, that we might have time tfftake breath and look around. \Ve didn't have to look far or vcl'y long, for right on the heels of basketball came trnck to take its place in the school intet·est. 'l'hc fellows who had won points in meets of the preceding year met and elected Calvin Sugg· '17 captain of the team for the season of 19]6, and to him belongs the hono1· o[ having captured more than a third of all the points taken by Claremont in the th1·cc meets which we entered. 'rhc material shown at the start was g·ood, everyone com­ ing up to, and in most cases bettering their past records in their fayoJ"ite events, to sa�, nothing of some pleasant surprises in the half mile. 'l'he first real meet of the season was the triangle meet between Citn1s, Bonita, and Clat·emont, held at Citrus Union High School. Cla1·emont, in spite of very limited p1·actice, sent down a team which, after snagging 40 points, came back with second place held fir·mly between theii· teeth, which were showing in sundry hrnad grins. 'l'he chances looked good for the home team. Al:tc1· a week, during which practice was carried on with energy, the Valley League 'Meet ·was held at Claremont. Dope was spilled right and left and most of it slopped against Clare­ mont, but once in a while it went in her favor, as in the half Eighty-two


mile, when Savory, af.ter leading the whole hunch a1·ound the course won in the time of 2 minutes 11 seconds, with Olinr, also of Claremont, about two feet. behind him a11d no c.nc else within t.wo ya1·ds. Claremoul again took second with 40 points; losing to Citrus who had won 471/:.! points. 'l'hc great event. of !he year, the big Gala Day, took place at. Alhambra,and, allhough we did not think it possihlc 10 wiu the meet, we Cell confident o[ making a showin::, and of at least placing ollt'seh·es at. a 1·espectahle distance rro111 the tail end. Our hopes we1·e justified, and i[ we had not been subject to a lit.tie ha1·d luck, par!ly because somebody's eyesight \\'flS seriously on the bum, when that pet'son called Sug-g second in the fifty yat·d dash, all othct·s who ,\·itncssccl the tinish swo1·e he took fii·st.; also, s<1rncbody else concci\·ed a bl'illiant. idea. i 11 the matte1· of n111ni11g o([ the hv!'Clles, whiel1 cut Sto\·e l ''s chances down to 1101hi11g. Claremont, in spite of these set backs, 100k thi l 'd place, scol'ing 24 points. Captain Sugg won 12 poin1s, taki ll!! second in the fHt.y, hen\'ing the discus 107 feet to second place; run­ ning t.hi1·cl in the hundred yat'd dash; and hoisting the ishot. ou1 to 46 feet, 8 inches fo1· an easy first. Rich took second in the shot; Platt climbed through space out to 19 feet ll inche!' in the broad jump, which janed loose an.r hopes that the others might hHc had for fil'st place; and Ston1· added an ext.ra jolt by taking seco11d with a jurup ot ]!) feet 6 inches.

"A TALE OF WOE."

1t was a pleasant Day. The boy went down the main street of the village. William the Miner, the black Smith, and the village Carpenter, WCl'C talking poli1ics on the street corner. '!'he Parson ,1·nlkcd down the other side o[ the street. On the othel' side ol' the stl'cct the hoy saw a White house, partly Vailed by la1·g-c shade tr��es. Behind !he homie, in the Mead-ows, the boy saw Wayne, t.hc Gardner, trying to trnp some Moles that were destroying his gat·dcn. The hoy talked to the ga!'dnci· a lit tic while, and tl1l'11 went out into the country where the roads were very sandy. Soon he saw a very Delap-idatccl auto, cn-Case-d with mud, mi1·cd in the slimy ooze that was all o,·c1· 1hc rnad. The d1·in1· wns ,·ainly trying to pull his machine oui o[ the mud. The boy told him that if he would Ha(u)l'stead ol: pushin' he wouldn't get so White in the face. The mnn snid, "Oh, (p)Shaw!" and then again, "Oh, I wish I had n Willow switch, and you would cat.ch it." J11st then, a Rich guy dr·ove up in a Pack­ ard, and asked if he could help him out of his difficulty. Ile then took out a tow-rnpe and fastened it to his nuto. The driver Cal(l)ed all well, and the Rich guy pulled him out of the mud. "So Endcth 'l'he 'J'alc."
