tcroitoria:l Service is our watchword; serving not for gain; Meeting every duty, be it toil or pain; Service for the homeland, loyal and unpriced; Service o·er the ocean, bearing forth the Christ.

-E. 0. Excell.

Service is the great idea .of our age.

It is not a new idea.

We have known its meaning since the first father protected his family and the first mother cared for her child. But it has been left for our age to apply it universally. No one is exempt: old and young, rich and poor, educated and ignorant, all alike must serve. Those who are not engaged in efforts for others can be hopeful and cheerful and self-denying. Claremont High School has shown a desire to do its part in this hour of our country· s need. Not in the spirit of boast­ fulness, but as an encouragement to further achievements, we recall our efforts to serve:

Belgian Relief Work �arried on by the students; Senior Red Cross claims a majority of our members; Junior Red Cross Auxiliary organized; Red Cross Benefits aided by our time and energies; "The Boys' remembered with Christmas gifts; Loyalty to the spirit of economy; Thrift Stamp Movement assisted by our members; Class socials and insignia sacrificed;

Liberty Bond purchased by The St;,,dent Body. In addition to these we would mention the general spirit of Loyalty to the highest interests of our nation. May this ever be the true meaning of El Espiritu. To show our appreciation of those former members of

Claremont High School who have responded to the call of the nation it seems fitting to dedicate our annual to them and to Loyalty and Service which they represent.

CLASSES

A great Future is before us, a Future fraught with grave problems and terrible possibilities. It calls for fortitude, and energy, and pa�ience, and intelligence-it calls for Men! The task is well-nigh overpowering -and it is ours. We, who are too young to engage in military conflict, must fight the battle of democracy and enduring peace after this war is over. We are facing a problem that will test o. µ r intellect as nothing has ever done and that will try our moral courage to the uttermost. We will suffer many rebuffs and make many humiliating mistakes, but in the end we shall triumph. To insure this ultimate triumph, we must pre­ pare ourselves. We must train our intellect. We must broaden our knowledge of humanity. We must grow, intellectually and spiritually. And our School must, and will, further this growth. Our athletics will develop strong bodies; our debating will quicken our powers of concen­ tration and expression; our Student Body activities will develop our executive ability; our studies will train and discipline our minds. Above all, our Classes-that intangible and oftentimes slighted bond of friend� ship and common endeavor-will awaken in us the sense of loyalty. The Classes must be worthy of that loyalty. Let us see to it that they are worthy. Let us see to it that the Classes, and through them the School, make us the better able to cope with our problem and to remain loyal to our highest ideals. -Chas. C. Cooper, Jr.

The class that leaves this year has excelled in both char­ acter and scholarship. They are an honor to our High School. While we regret their going we shall ever be grateful for their example of a high standard of scholarship.

Ever the order changeth ;' Ever the years must yield; Ever the future opens; Ever the past is sealed; Ever old tasks are finished; Ever the new revealed. And now you pass from classroom;

ACTIVITIES Gone are the days of pirates bold With their laden ships of stolen gold; King Arthur's knights with their suits of mail, Are now only known in story and tale.

Past are the days of plenty and peace, When the noises of battle were bidden to cease. We, as a people, did thrive and grow, While great abundance did ceaseless flow. But now are the days of blood and of war, Of strife among nations, not known -before. Cities and towns are made ruthlessly bare, And many brave men are laid low, over there.

The day of tyrants is long oince past, Republics are taking their place, at last. Liberty for all, is the cry of the hour, And monarchs must leave their thrones of power.

The future must bring both peace and good-will, Men must live and no longer kill, Brotherly love must predominate, then, And joy rule the hearts of earth's riotous men.

-Curtis Elliott. Page Twenty-five

Claremont High School is slowly extending the sphere of

her activities. This year, an important step forward was taken:

we entered the Interscholastic Debating League of California. For several years this action has been considered; but we had never felt justified in attempting such an undertaking. There have been three simultaneous debates this year. In each case, the affirmative team remained at home and the nega­

tive team went to a neighboring•school.

The seven schools

participating in these three simultaneous debates formed one

of the several districts into which the state was divided.

The

school winning the greatest number of these intra-district con­

tests would meet the winner of another district. The winner of this debate would progress into the next round, and so on, the process being similar to a tournament. The finals are held at the University of California. The questions are sent out by the university, the judges are chosen by the mutual consent of the contending schools, and everything is executed with busi­ ness-like precision and efficiency.

Page TweHf)•-scven


Claremont did not win many of her debates. This was rather to be expected, however, and did not bring undue dis­ couragement. It was our first year in the League, and we were naturally inexperienced. Then, too, we are handicappea_ by OUT small number and OUT multifarious activities. To excel requires specialization and intense application, and this we cannot secure; but we do get a broader and more general train­ ing, along several different lines. Notwithstanding our disad­ vantages, we have gained valuable experience and paved the way for better success next year. -Charles C. Cooper.

SENIOR RECEPTION

Stately and splendid was the annual reception given in honor of the departing class of 19 1 7 on that eventful May evening. Patriotism was emphasized here, there, and every­ where throughout the evening. When the bugles resounded and the usual formalities of a receptiqn were over the guests hastened into the auditorium

to enjoy a varied program. The Representation of Popular Songs proved to be the most effective and most appreciated number on the program.

There appeared to be no end of flags in the decorations. When the guests arrived in the refreshment room, it seemed for a time that they would forget to eat their little brown cakes and the red, white and blue ice cream, so absorbed were they in the beauty of the scene. Red Cross nurses came to their aid and reminded them of their need of nourishment by plac­ ing the dainties before them. Thus was closed a successful reception with "flying colors".

FRESHMAN JOLLY-UP

The years may come, the years may go And in time we'll all grow old, .. But the Freshman Carnival Jolly-Up Ever in remembrance we'll hold. On September the twenty-ninth, the three upper classes enter­ tained the Freshman with an "Old Fashioned Carnival". Rou­ lette wheels, fortune tellers and games of chance were in evi­ dence everywhere and the lively crowd patronized each amuse­ ment to its utmost capacity. Later, with the full moon watch­ ing, a confetti battle was held on the tennis court. It was whis­ pered that others were full besides the moon-but really it was not as shocking as it sounds, for the "'little brown jugs" con­ tained only sweet cider; just the night cap for each tender freshman.


FRESHMAN-SOPH.OMORE PARTY

On Saturday evening, the third day of November, the sophomores displayed their "pep," "steam," etc., by a delight­ ful progressive party. The young aspirants of both classes met first at the home of Kitty Woodford where numerous games were enjoyed. A line of march was then formed and soon the enthusiastic co­ horts arrived at the home of Mrs. Ernst. This time games were played out of doors As the merry party again hastened onward, they were very much alarmed by the sight of a ghost guarding the door at the home of Katherine Johnson. Despite this gruesome introduction and many other dif­ ficulties, the guests finally succeeded in gaining an entrance through a window. Once inside they encountered nothing worse than "feather-dusters'", cold clammy hands, ;md other "creepy things... When the Freshies were presented with all­ day-suckers the Sophs also took one just to keep them com­ pany. The High School was next raided and after the girls had been auctioned off a delightful '"feed" was participated in by each and all. However, "curfew" did not forget to ring that night, and presently the High School, deserted by all the merry­ makers, was dark and silent again.

DELTA SIGMA PARTY

Even the Jack o'Lanterns grinned as the guests of Delta Sigma entered the doors of Llewellyn Smith's home on Friday night, November the second, grinning prophecy of a good time, which was fulfilled in an evening of hilarious fun. For the satisfaction of "physical souls" luscious hot ta­ males, pumpkin pie and unlimited supply of cider were served. A verdict was given by all the young ladies present that Delta Sigma-ites surely knew the fundamentals of good times and the boys were more than proud to belong to such a popular society.

THE WITENAGEMOT PARTY

Given-a history-making debate between the members of Witenagemot and their guests on November 24, 191 7. To Prove--(A) Eat, (B) Drink and (C) Be merry in the reverse order.

Proof-C=over-developed mentality, a "record-break­ ing" towel, a guaranteed course in stuttering, games of strict Bohemian origin and a marshmallow race that never passes the censor. Extend C by a thrilling ride on shank's mare, thus proving that the moon and ..lonesome" are always incongruous.

8=99% pure. A=delicious refreshments. Therefore C+B+ A=the required proposition,-that we eat, drink and be merry, in the reverse order. -Q. E. D.

PHILOMA THIA PARTY

Who?-Philomathians and friends. Whcre?-Casa Blanca Hotel. What?-"Five Hundred," "Tiddledy Winks." When?-February 2nd, 1918. Why?-Customary '"blow out." Summary: Lots of "pep"; plenty of skill; a fine pro­ gram; good "eats" and of course--a full moon. 'Nuff said.

SENORITA HOP

C. H. S., Ma:rch the 29th. Dear Annie Body: It is quite late, but I must write you about the Senorita Hop which has just now seen its finish. Oh yes! It was a gorgeous affair. Plenty of pretty frocks and smiling faces. Yes, and a perfe<!t evening I The Red Cross will certainly receive a little pin money from the thirty fair ones present. Music, you say? Of course! Fine except there didn't seem to be enough. Now add a grand march, waltzes and the like and there's your Senorita Hop. Any one who says she did not have the time of her life is surely a "terminalogical inexactitudinarian!" Adoringly yours, Annie One.

JUNIOR-SENIOR PARTY (FROM A SENIOR DIARY)

February 8, 19 1 8. At the end of a perfect day. We were all Uncle Sam's men under intensive training for. two and one-half hours this evening. Just think I-girls as· well as boys. No fooling about it either I Fun? I should say! Goads of it. Oh, you registration! Perimeter of foot-28 pounds. Diameter of head-0 pounds. State your total income of knowledge in the last monthsH00 Water. And so on, to say nothing of how personal the question­ naue was. After registration we had to part with all those who were dearest to us and leave for Camp Lewis, · Camp Kearny, or Mare Island. And when we were through training! Oh.I we were some sharpshooters and some say it made men of us. · The Y. M. C. A. hut indeed provided some -"classy•·• en-.

tertainment.

Jazz, more jazz,-and still more jazz was fol•�

llowed by the clever skit, "The Tragedy of an Egg".

(Ii: cer­

tainly was dramatic when the egg was being carried out on a rug.) Then-oh! Jazz, jazz, and again the awful foreshadow­ ing of what might happen after "mess". (Up the ladder!) Those placards "Don't forget to write home!" etc., made us think of our loved ones who were left behind, or rather "left out"-Freshmen and Sophomores, for instance. In spite of the "pill'' we were a mighty hungry bunch when· the "mess" bugle resoun·ded. The War Department certainly· knows how to feed its soldiers-no substitutes either.

"Here in China the world lies adream, Like a thousand years ago,

And the place of our dream ts eternal

SENIOR PLAY. This dream was realized when, on the night of January the nine­ teenth, the rising curtain revealed the opening scene of the Senior Play. Only in China could there be such a quaint gateway with its array of heads; a beggar prince; a willful princess who held the des-.­ tiny of all her suitors; and a jolly · clever Capacomico who, though be­ set with petty troubles., was able to assist the prince in his quest. Still greater was the illusion when in the second 1cene, in the beautiful boudoir of the princess, the mysterious Capacomico, king of minstrels and emperor for a day, promised his aid to the sorrowful princess.

' I

The glamour of romance deep­ ened in the royal court, where were revealed the answers of the riddles; where love triumphed; and where the emperor' of a day, hav­ in l redeemed his pledge, retired to his joyous life of minstrelsy.

CUPID AT VASSAR Boarding school life is not all a bed of roses, especially where love is concerned: so Kate Newton found. For when her unloving sister and Amos North conspired together; and when her mother opposed the "proverbial Church mouse," John Willet; and when John himself misunderstood her-what could she do? But before the evening was over the tangle was straightened out and all ended happily. From the rising of the curtain in the first scene until the last sweet strains of the "Daisy Chain" were sung-the play

was an entire success: all parts being interpreted with great

skill. The group of pretty college girls in gay costumes, with their many catchy songs and tableaux, lent additional charm to the play, while little chocolate "bonbon" Shiny, with his smiles, jokes and witty sayings captured our hearts and kept us laughing continually. Without doubt "Cupid at Vassar" proved to be one of the best stage productions ever put on by Claremont High School.

School began in September with not one of last year's Basket-Ball veterans among the students. Thus, when the sea­ son opened it was not without cause that considerable doubt

Page Thirty-seveu


was expressed as to our chances for a good team.

No sooner

had a few practice games been fon off, however, than all fears were dispelled. After several weeks of hard work, during which our fel­ lows showed unusual promise, they went to Puente. But the first game was not to be ours, for though our men outplayed the Puente team the final score stood 31-30 in their favor. Far from being a discouragement, this first defeat only instilled more fighting spirit into the team. With another week's practice and a strong determination to win, Claremont met La Verne College on our home field. Victory in this game was assured us from the start. One of the fastest games of the season was played the next week when Claremont met Norwalk on the Norwalk court. It was a close fought contest from start to finish but towards the last the game seemed to be going to the Norwalk team, who were five or six baskets in the lead. In the last five min­ utes, however, oUt men let out such an amount of stored jazz

that before the Norwalk team had found themselves the game was ours with a score of 38-34. What can't Claremont do in a pinch! Bonita High was the next on our schedule and in settle­ ment of a long standing dispute we defeated them 25-23. Thanksgiving must have had its temptations even for the Basket-Ball veterans for in our next game, with Downey, Clare­ mont suffered defeat. It was by no means a walk-away for the victors for they barely won by a score of 30-29. Most brilliant of all was the game on the last day of the season when El Monte brought their team down to play Clare­ mont. Confident of victory-for with a record of no defeats during the season-they had little cause for fear. But it took Claremont to show the way that Basket-Ball should be played. Again and again El Monte tried fresh men but it did no good. Victory was for Claremont and we won with a score of 29-24. With a memory of such a victory we cannot but think that Basket-Ball this year has been a success. Though we missed the championship by one point we showed that we could de­ feat the champions. The success of the season, however, can­ not be attributed to any particular star players. In every game it was the team-work instilled into the team throughout the sea­ son by Coach Green and Captain Daggs that won us the vic­ tories. So it is the team as a whole of which we are justly proud and through whom we are looking for great things for Claremont in our next season.

Notwithstanding the fact that it was quite late in the sea­ son before our track team began training, the team was un� usually successful. As soon as systematic training was begun, through the efforts of Coach Green and Captain Alan White, great enthusiasm was shown by all. As usual it was planned to hold the Valley Section Cham­ pionship Meet the week before Gala Day, but owing to heavy

Page Thirty-nine


rains during the week preceding the date set, the meet was called off. However, this delay ga:_,e our men a chance to put the finishing touches on their accomplishments. As planned, the Gala Day meet was held March I 6 on the Pomona College field under the auspices of Covina High School. No better day could have been wished for the field was in fine condition. The whole Claremont team showed up well and until near the end of the afternoon Claremont stood a close second to Citrus who held first place. When, however, Citrus instead of our team took the relay our chances for win­ ning the meet were lost. Nevertheless, second place was un­

disputedly ours and though we believed that we ought to have had the championship, we felt all the stronger for the next meet.

Citrus took the meet cup permanently, having captured

it for three years, and also took the new relay cup which was just �tarted this year.

Daggs proved himself the individual star of the day and Shaw, White, Hitchcock, Hastings, Woodford and H. Lorbeer showed up well in their respective stunts. A week from Gala Day, on March 23, the Valley Cham­ pionship Meet was held at Bo'nita. Here, since we did not have Citrus to compete with, victory was assured us from the start.

But even though we expected to run away with the meet, we could not help being .Pleasantly surprised by such events as first places in the high jump and 220-yard dash taken by Hitch­ cock and Shaw, respectively; five places in the hurdles coming to us; and Hastings and Gardner both placing in the half mile. Eaton and W. Lorbeer also did well in their events. The crown­ ing triumph of all was Daggs trotting in on the relay with 25 yards to spare. In this meet we captured all the cups-three in number. The meet cup, for which we tied with Bonita last. year, again came to us, making twc;:, successive years for Claremont; a

smaller cup for the meet became ours permanently; and the relay team brought home the cup for the first year. Yes, this last season has been a most successful one and much credit is due to Coach Green and Captain White who led

our team to such a victory. However, our hopes are for the future and as most of this year's team were under-classmen

we are looking for even greater success for Claremont High during the years to come.

If there was less interest in baseball shown this year, as it seemed to many, it was probably due to the many other things that have kept the most·of us busy during the greater part of the school year. The prospects at the beginning of the season were very bright. We had lost but six of last year's letter-men: Allen, pitcher; Gardner, catcher; Oliver, first base; Burton, third; Smith, shortstop, and Williams, second-string pitcher. This gave us five men from last year's team to start things this year. However, these five were men who had filled the less important positions last year, and as most of these played different posi­ tions this year, it actually became necessary to develop an entirely new team. As we had no experienced pitchers to start with this year, we had to develop one. Holt, a star in the interclass games last year, was chosen, and found to be a consistent and reliable performer. Richards also showed up well in the box, pitching several of the minor games with a fair degree of skill. Steves and Friedman as catchers displayed some very good work behind the bat, and it was hard to choose which was the better of the two. As Friedman was needed in the outfield, Steves was finally given the position. The infield problem was solved by placing Richards and Daggs, two of last year's outfielders, on first and third, respec­ tively, and leaving Bell on second. For a while some trouble was found in filling shortstop efficiently, but at last a capable man was found in Bakke, a freshman. The outfield has proved to be the most difficult depart­ ment of the team to fill successfully, but finally the combination of Eaton, Hitchcock, and Friedman was chosen. These three have shown by their accurate fielding and dependable batting that the choice was a wise one. This team, through the capable leadership and instruction of Captain Holt and Coach Charles Green, pulled through the season in a better manner than the first few games would indi­ cate, although we did not win the majority of the games on our schedule. However, we have great hopes for baseball next

year and in other years to come.

FROM THE BOYS IN SERVICE Somewhere in Atlantic. Today we returned from a very lonesome but picturesque trip of two weeks' duration. The flotilla held torpedo and target practice at sea with the historic laland of Dry Tortugas at the base. Tortugas is a coral island of about ten acres area. It is covered with a giant brick fort built at the time of the Civil War. It is surrounded by a moat. The old cannon are still there, rusty and of no value. It cost millions. After the war the political prisoners and the conspirators to kill Lincoln were confined there. Tomorrow we take a trip out to look for signs of the lost Cyclops. She was lost not a great way from here. I was over to see Romeo Could, (Chaplain here) last evening. He graduated from Pomona College in '99. We had a good visit about Pomona. He is a three-striper. Every day I see Thomas Edison. He is in the yard all the time. A •ery young looking man for 70 years. He is working on a wireless torpedo. He was on our ship yesterday for. a half hour. He does not look any smarter than any man in Claremont. His suit is worn sleek and shiny. Well, "Hammocks" is called, so I must go and hang mine.

The jewelry and souvenir shops in particular have lots of pretty things in them-trinkets, etc., of a different character from those one finds in the U. S. A. As far as prices go, the French are wise, all right, especially if you don't speak the language. Talk about the Yanks, these people sure are good at collecting the sheckels. It takes about a month's wages for a person to get educated. By the way, as far as meat goes this country, as far as I have seen, seems to be pretty well off. Butcher shops everywhere and good looking meat, too. Confectionery stores are just about a minus quantity. The main sweet stuff consists of very good figs and dates, also nuts, with a very little chocolate, high in price and poor in quality. Haven't seen a chocolate cream since I got over here. By the way. there's a sort of a "moving business district" in town. Just came in via the wagon route. There are some 20 wagons in this particular department store. It is just a large edition of the peddling wagon idea. They lined the wagons up on both sides of the street and opened up for business. Some stock, believe me. Everything from buttons and bolt drygoods to second hand hammers and white piga.

A p ril 4, 1918.

In Wilmington, Delaware, and Chester, Pennsylvania, the people fell over each other in an attempt to wave at us. A good many had American flags and waved them. That always brought out a cheer from the whole train. I remember one old man and woman that looked rather poor were out in their yard waving at us. They had a service Rag up with three stars in it. When the men saw it they bunt into cheers, and I know that one old couple was glad they had given their bit. It sure gave me a funny feeling. We were towed out into the Hudson River at· 1 :20 eastern time Friday night, by six or seven tugs, and then got under way under our own power. It surely is a grand sight at night. On one side of the River was New York, and on the other side, New Jersey. A little later we went by the Statue of Liberty. It was all lit up and was certainly beautiful. It gave me a funny feeling to see it fading away, and I won· de red if I should ever see it again. Today makes our sixth day out of New York, so we will probably be there tomorrow or Saturday. We entered the war zone on --- but as yet have no destroy.era with us. We will probably have them by tonight or tomorrow. We wear our life preservers continually and have drill every day, but even at that there would be a good many lost if we should get torpedoed, especially if the water were rough and it happened at night.

ABOARD THE NING PO

Ching Han trudged along the pier to where the Ning Po lay at anchor. It was a very quiet morning, some hundred years ago. A soft south breeze was blowing, just enough to make it seem like spring; the warm sun was shining brightly down, displaying the many different greens of the ocean. But Ching Han did not feel the warm sun nor did the smell of the salt air reach his nostrils. He was blind, dumb, and deaf to all save the great ship Ning Po, the finest ship afloat on the Chinese waters. Its broad sails were of silk with fierce yellow and black dragons painted upon them; the body of the ship

was of strong ironwood, wondrously painted and carved on the stern. As Ching Han was going aboard the ship he noticed the young Chinese captain standing watching the working men. His cap was of black and gold as was his gown. He dropped the paper which 'he was loosely holding-Ching Han sprang for it and handed it back to him. The captain smiled at him with kindly eyes and thanked him. Ching Han was thrilled with pleasure as he did so, for had not the captain spoken to him and smiled at him? "Eight miles east of the Point of the Crossed Bones. Yes! Yes! I see," the captain had said, while tracing his jeweled

finger between a rock)' point and an island on a mysterious

and dirty looking chart. An old man, long years past a sea captain, with a record none too honorable, looked shrewdly at the younger man while he pushed his much worn yellow turban into place. Ching Han had held his breath. A month before he had watched the two at a small table in an opium shop talking together about a buried treasure. "Yes, you drop anchor at the cove where one tall pine tree stands. From there walk due north a hundred paces. Then you will be on the summit by a great rock: there will be a small gum tree. Dig on the side of the rising sun-there lies the treasure." One of his wrinkled hands grasped his pipe. 'There lies your fortune." Queer lights came and went in his eyes as he talked. Now his eyelids were almost closed, his other hand shut over his companion's; the light from the lantern just overhead showed his sunken and wrinkled yellow face agleam; and puffs of the smoke from his pipe drifted over where Ching Han sat enchanted. During this time Ching Han developed a great love for this young unknown sea captain who

would soon be going out in search for a buried treasure with

which he hoped to buy back the old man's former junk and which would satisfy his own cravings for wealth. Perhaps it Page Forty-eight


was the air of an adventure about the captain that led Ching Han to resolve that he would follow "his captain" for the rest of his days though it should cost him his life; and he little realized then that it would-almost. So, when a month later, ',latents b.avinv; been carried he "'"'� \elt ,,.\,me ,n the "'mld, away one night when a plague �as ravaging the city, he went out to follow the young sea captain. Thus he found himself on board the Ning Po, face to face with his beloved captain. As the first week went by Ching Han was able to serve the captain in many ways and he was rewarded by the unques­ tioned pleasure of the captain. At the first the captain talked with him merely for the amusement it afforded him, but grad­ ually he took Ching Han into his confidence and told him many things about the sea, and most often about his wish to own great warehouses and many large ships. These he said he would buy with his part of the treasure. At twilight, when all the work for the day was done, the two would stand on the deck together; sometimes they stood quietly leaning against the rail while the spray dashed softly up into their faces and the wind played gently with their clothing; but often they would pace up and down the deck together, the captain's arm thrown around the boy's shoulders. Then suddenly, as the orange moon first showed itself to them from over the horizon, he would lift his arm and exclaim exultantly, 'There, Ching Han, there lies the treasure I"

l,.,.,

"'Yes, captain," Ching Han answered, "but the sai1ors grumble and mutter." 'Tell them tomorrow that on the third rising of the sun we shall drop anchor and go ashore." On the morrow the sailors were quieted for the time by this news; nevertheless it was met with grumbling. "Why did not the captain tell us the news himself}" asked Ta Shih Fu, the cook. "He is afraid to, I guess," answered one. "M<1.ybe he did not <:Me to meet u-1,," a\\ot\\','o! I�mMkcl dryly. "He stays up on deck looking for a treasure while we have to stay down here, and when we get to the treasure we will have to dig for it and what part of it, I should like to ask, will we get? " But the following day did not go as •moothly by as the captain expected, and the next serious trouble was started. Ching Han rose late and was soundly scolded by Ta Shih Fui, and given no breakfast. Then, too, Ching Han did not appear to take the captain's tray to him as was the boy's usual custom. So Ta Shih Fu started toward the captain's room with the cup of tea. Swinging the door open he stepped out and Page Forty-nine


Ching Han, standing near, was pushed against Ta Shih Fu as the boat gave a sudden lurch: The tray was knocked from his hands, and the tea was slopped onto the captain I The captain, greatly angered, turned and retraced his steps, not noticing Ching Han, who also ran away, so that when Ta Shih Fu turned he should be out of the way. Then Ta Shih Fu was called into the captain's cabin and Ching Han slipped into the room unnoticed. Angry words followed the entrance of Ta Shih Fu. "Twenty hours with the yoke around your useless neck," was the captain's decision.

"Oh, sir,·.· cried the boy, springing from a darkened cor­

ner, "truly it was not his fault, but mine. The wave made me go

against him and that mad<! him spill the tea. You should pun­ ish me." The words did not suit the angry captain and he turned, crying, "Ching Han, you, whom I have made a friend and a confidante, noJ turn against me and ask me to change a

decision! Away, you meddling boy. Do not come within my sight again." Ching Han had belittled him before one of the crew by asking him, the captain of the ship, to recall a command. But a minute later as his anger died down he thought Ching Han was right after all; ought he to be easier on the offending man;- was it, after all, purely an accident? Swiftly the answer to the thoughts came-no! his decision was made, and should stand. Three days passed-and yet no island had been sighted. Early in the morning heavy black clouds were to be seen in the east; by noon a strong wind was blowing, and by early afternoon the sky was black. A fierce wind was tugging at the sails, and mighty waves were rocking the ship. In one horrible moment the boat was rocked from stem to stern• one sail was torn to shreds. The boat creaked and groaned. • The lurid lightning was the only light. The men were crowded together, fearful for the next moment. The captain had broken his word; they were out beyond the limit of the sea, by the ocean Shantai.

"Mutiny, men," cried Ta Shih Su, "I tell you we do not need to follow this man. He has wronged you and me. Away with him-come!" They {allowed blindly, stupefied with fear. Ching Han forgot the captain· s wrath and orders and thought only of one thing, that he still loved the captain and that he must save him. He slipped out up to the captain's cabin. Breaking open the door, he exclaimed, "Captain, captain, come. They mutiny. They kill you!" Page Fifty


Amazed, the captain stood up. "What nonsense is it you trying this time?" he demanded. But Ching Han had no time to answer. Already the shouts of the men reached them. The captain reached for his sword and rushed out on the narrow stairs. The first man fell, then the second. A third came, while a fourth crept up from behind with drawn sword raised. Ching Han saw, and with cat-like agility he sprang and the sword fell to the floor. The man struck with his fist at the boy' and hit him upon the temple. Ching Han swooned as the captain turned and ran his sword through the mutineer. The captain again faced those on the stairs, but he had no need lo fear them; the storm had stopped as quickly as it had come; the sun shone through the clouds; the waves were quiet and not more than a half mile away lay the island. As the men turned and looked they threw their swords down and called for quarter. The captain threw his aside also and bent over the quiet boy. The captain, who a few minutes ago was so haughty, now bathed the pale face of the boy and with untold relief watched the closed eyes open. They closed once more, and then, with an effort the boy opened them the second time. A happy smile lighted Ching Han's face as he read in the captain's eyes the message that all was well, and his joy seemed to have reached its height when the captain told him that when the treasure was taken home he should become the captain's own son and heir. Two years ago the tourists on board the incoming ship at Catalina looked with great interest at the object which the steward called "the junk." It was the old battered ship for­ merly called the Ning Po. It was a sad picture in contrast to the brave and gallant one it had made some hundred years ago, when Ching Han sailed with his captain aboard it. The eyes of the dragon looked but dimly out at sea and the stern had been battered against the rocks in a storm. One of the masts was gone, but the windlass and anchor were still there, with the very yoke that had gone aro"und Ta Shih Fu's neck. A water pump was now needed where the crew had slept. Yes, on the whole it was a sad picture of ruin, but as the sun shone like a huge red ball over the top of the hills, the two remaining masts stood strong and upright, and as the twilight came on, the ocean waves rocked the Ning Po very gently, telling it, as of old, the secrets of the sea. -Mildred Overholtzer.

PIXIE'S "BIT"

The cool summer night had brought refreshment to the little Western town, and the inhabitants had been in their beds a good two hours. The myriad stars burned brightly against their background of dark blue, but the moon had not yet appeared. The stillness of the night air was suddenly broken by rapid hoof-beats, and two fiercely galloping horses, their riders bent low over the necks of their mounts, dashed into the village. The first rider rode straight through the heart of the town, but the other, who was a few rods in the rear, veered off to the east and galloped in a diagonal course across the sage-brush. The few townspeople who were awakened by the rapid passing of the riders, either thought nothing of the matter, or attributed it tq thoughtless young folks who thus disturbed their night's rest. Meanwhile the first rider hastened on to the southern end of the town, and there turned east. The second rider

continued on the diagonal course, apparently planning to inter­

cept the other, who, hearing the approaching hoof-beats, sud­ denly turned out into the desert. The second rider drew up to the end of the desert in time to see the first vanish amid a cluster of oaks. The red rim of the big moon was now show­ ing above the horizon, and a pale, silvery glamor fell over the land. By this dim light it could be seen that the last rider was a girl of eighteen,- muffied in a dark cloak. Her face gleamed white in the moonlight and her heavy black hair fell over her shoulders in a tumbled mass and was indistinguish­ able from the coal black of her horse. After staring a moment in the direction of the vanished rider, the girl wheeled her horse sharply and cantered northward along the edge of the town. After she had passed the northern boundary of the town she slackened her swift pace to a walk, and letting her hands rest on the pommel of her saddle, watched the great red disk in the east. Suddenly, close at hand, the desert hound gave forth his lonely cry, and was answered afar off. Again came the cry, and this .time it was answered from two direc­ tions; then the weird calls seemed to come from all parts of the desert, and the midnight marauders were off on their quest, their reiterated ki-yi ! ki-yi I now sounding closer and now more distant. By the time the girl had reached the end of her ride the brilliant moon was clear of the horizon, and against her red-gold glow the slender eucalyptus trees looked dark and mystic. The girl had come to a small house near the mountains, and slipping from her saddle, she led her horse around the building to the barn, where she opened the corral­ gate and led him in. There she took off his saddle and bridle, leaving him loose in the corral, and then hurried stealthily to the house. Going around to the east side, where a row of Page Fifty-two


eucalyptus trees screened her from the moonlight, she cau­ tiously climbed through an open window into her room. "Pixie," said Mrs. Jewell, as she entered the dining-room, "did you hear any one on horseback ride past here last night about midnight? I heard two horses go by at a furious rate." "Probably some one from the town out joy-riding," answered the girl, carelessly, an indifferent smile on her face. Her large gray eyes met her mothers blue ones unconcernedly and then glanced out of the window. No tell-tale color rose to her face at this mention of her night's adventure. With one or two commonplace remarks, Mrs. Jewell left the room. Soon afterward, Pixie emerged from the house, wearing a khaki riding habit and broad-brimmed felt hat, and made her way to the barn, where she saddled the black horse El Capitan, and cantered off into the desert. At a little distance from her home she pulled her horse to a walk and directed her mind to last night's incident. She had not a doubt that she had come upon something mysterious, and also suspicious, and she was

determined to unravel the mystery. She thought of the first time she had seen the big bay horse which she had pursued so hotly the preceding night. Having read until late that night, she had heard a horse galloping along the road, and had seen a large bay pass swiftly. Thinking nothing of the incident, she quickly forgot it, until several nights later, when chancing to wake in the night, she again heard swift hoof-beats nearing. Hurrying to her window, she saw the same horse and rider

galloping westward past the house. This coincidence speedily aroused her interest, and the next night she stayed awake to see if the midnight ride would be repeated. At half-past eleven she heard the horse approaching and again watched it gallop swiftly westward. Her suspicions were now fully aroused, and hastily dressing, she got out of her window and went to the barn, where she saddled El Capitan. She had wrapped herself in a dark cloak and had loosened her long black hair, so that horse and rider presented an almost unrecognizable mass of black. She rode slowly out to the road and listened. No galloping horse could be heard. She strained her eyes to the west and saw a horse and rider emerge

of oak trees.

from a clump

In a few seconds the rhythmic gallop of a

horse came to her ears.

Pixie's curiosity was more tantalized

than ever, for that group of oak trees hid the little shanty where taciturn Lynn Trale lived. Who could be going to Trale's house three times within the last week, and at midnight? Pixie rode along the road to a pair of eucalyptus trees into whose dense shadow she withdrew. Clippety-click! Clippety­ click I came the hoof-beats, and the girl held the reins tighter and trembled with excitement. The rider was almost to the eucalyptus trees, and Pixie leaned over her horse· s neck. There were trees on one or the other side of the road for quite a disPage Fifty-three


tance beyond her hiding-place, but directly in front of her lay a bright patch of moonlight, and towards this spot Pixie strained her eyes. Nearer and nearer ca'ine the rider and then the big bay thundered past. In the brief instant in which horse and rider were exposed by the patch of moonlight, Pixie had rec­ ognized the rider as Dorothea Chadwick, the beautiful wife of Colonel Chadwick, who was second in command at Fort Loomis I Without an instant's hesitation Pixie urged her horse forward. The two riders flashed past Pixie's home and on down the road leading to the town. Dorothea did not lose her head, and Pixie could not help admiring the woman's pluck. The chase ended in the manner recounted above, leaving Pixie temporarily defeated, but determined to ferret out the mystery. She already had her suspicions, and they seemed not without good gri;,unds. First, Colonel Chadwick, second in command at the fort, must necessarily possess some knowledge of military plans. Second, Lynn Trale was an unknown character whose reticence had already excited some interest. And third, Dorothea Chadwick had been to Trale's shanty at midnight, not once, but three times if not more. What could it all mean but a secret menace to the country? With these thoughts in her mind, Pixie rode slowly back to her home. That night, and for several nights following, Pixie scoured the surrounding country on midnight rides, but she found no trace of either Lynn Trale or the Colonel's wife until nearly a week later. Having left her room as usual, she mounted El Capitan and rode northward. After riding some distance she stopped in the shelter of some oaks near an old Spanish half-way house, and looked about her. Suddenly, east of the ruined building she caught sight of two approaching figures heading toward the half-way house. Dismounting from her horse, she slipped through the shadowy trees and entered the building, where she crept into the shadow. A moment later the two figures entered from the other side and stood in the pale moonlight which shone through the doorway. As Pixie had expected, they were Dorothea Chadwick and Lynn Trale. Dorothea spoke fir�t. "'Somehow I always feel a little safer when we come here because it's away from any sign of human life." Her golden head moved a trifle restlessly as she glanced about. Pixie flattened herself against the wall and waited for Trale's reply. "You aren't getting scared out, are you, Dorothea? If you have the papers now, our work is nearly done, and the old score will be settled." "'Yes, 1 have the papers," said Dorothea, and she held out a carefully wrapped packet which Trale took eagerly. "No suspicion has yet been aroused," she continued, ..but when Henry notices that they are gone, I shall have to act my part Page Fift,•-fo11r


carefully to give the right impression of innocence." Her voice grew troubled. "I am sure Henry will be above suspicion. I shall not harm him more than is necessary to satisfy ·the chief.' .. "We cannot stop at scruples," answered Trale, "and 'the chief' is depending on your influence in the affair with Martin, after this is finished." " The chief' is hard to satisfy," said Dorothea, a trifle defiantly. "I shall thank my stars when it is over and I can forget that mix-up abroad." Pixie was curious to know what mix-up Dorothea had been in abroad, but she concluded that it had brought her under the power of "the chief" whom they had mentioned. Certainly the golden-haired beauty was an invaluable asset to the conspirators, especially because of her position at the f,;rt. Pixie decided that, while Dorothea did not wish her hus­ band to be implicated, her affection for him did not equal her fear of "the chief." "I will put the papers in the hiding-place," said Trale, "and in three days 'the chief' will be here. He will take the papers, and then our work is done." His dark face looked triumphant, and he and Dorothea left the building. Pixie waited for some time after they had disappeared and then cautiously made her way to El Capitan and rode homeward. "Dorothea, the papers I was given to keep are gone! They were secret documents left in my charge, and I will be branded a traitor!" Colonel Chadwick's voice was hoarse and strained, and he staggered across the room and sank into a chair, his face ashen. "They were locked in my safe, and now they are gone!" A great fear was in the Colonel's eyes and his hands clutched spasmodically at the table before him. "Gone!" echoed his wife. "Why, Henry, they can't be! Were they (erribly valuable? Oh, surely they will turn up , somewhere.

Dorothea started to his side, appearing as terrified as her husband.. Her lovely face was all concern as she questioned him. To her husband's mind no thought of doubting her sin­ cerity ever occurred, although many past events might have appeared strange and, perhaps, significant, had he not been blinded by her charm. He appealed to her, desperately, the horror in his eyes growing as he realized what the loss of the papers meant for him. Dorothea's heart sank as she under­ stood his position, but the work could not be undone, and over her hung the threatening shadow of "the chief." ¥

Late in the afternoon of the same day that Colonel Chad­ wick told his wife of the missing papers, Pixie, watching from her window, saw Lynn Trale ride off to town. Swiftly she saddled El Capitan and rode over to his shanty. The door was closed, but not locked, and after a moment's hesitation, Pixie entered, There was nothing whatever in the one-roomed shack that could offer a hiding place for the papers; neverthe­ less, Pixie searched every corner conscientiously before giving

up. Then she thought of the possibility that Trale had hidden them at one of the many rendezvous they apparently had, and her heart sank. "The Chief' was due tomorrow. She must have those papers! Despairingly she left the shanty and crossed the yard to her horse. She noticed several large rocks lying among the weeds, and chancing to brush the weeds aside from one of these, she caught sight of freshly turned soil. With a cry she stooped and rolled "the rock to one side. The earth beneath it was soft and had been lately disturbed. Hastily she scooped it out, and at last her hands touched iron. Feeling about, she discovered it to be a small iron box which she drew forth to the light. > It was locked, but she succeeded in breaking it open with a small rock. Inside was the carefully wrapped packet! Scarcely able to believe her good fortune, Pixie placed the empty box back in the hole, refilled the hole, and placed the large rock over it. Then she mounted El Capitan and rode furiously to Fort Loomis. which lay south of the little town. Upon reaching the gates she earnestly demanded entrance, finally stating ·it to be a case of life and death. The sentry at last admitted her, and she was taken to the General's headquarters. Upon being told that General Kent was busy, she replied that she must see him about some important papers. The orderly was unconvinced, but General Kent ordered her admittance. When Pixie entered the room she saw Colonel Chadwick seated opposite the General, his face pale and drawn. She immediately comprehended the situation, and abruptly launched into her story, first handing the papers to the General. Over the General's face passed first incredulity, quickly succeeded by astonishment, and then admiration. Pixie did not spare Dorothea Chadwick in the story, and the Colonel seemed to sit in a trance, his face growing whiter and

more haggard. When Pixie had finished, General Kent turned to the Colonel and said gravely, "Of course you are now cleared of all charges, Colonel Chadwick. I cannot say how much I regret the way this matter turned out."

Like one in a dream, the Colonel rose to his feet and went out. The General then issued orders for a guard to be assembled to go to Trale's place and arrest him. Pixie gave directions for finding his shanty, and then left, promising to meet the soldiers there. Page Fifty-six


For some inexplicable reason, Pixie now rode straight to T rale' s place, and stopping out in the road before his shack, she saw a curious sight. Trale was kneeling before the large rock, gazing at an empty iron box in his hands. Again and again he searched the hole, and then, dropping the iron box, he rushed to the corral, where he feverishly began saddling his horse. He was going to escape! At that instant Pixie heard a far-off galloping; the soldiers were on their way. If only she could head Trale in the right direction, he would run di­ rectly into them. The man, in his frantic haste, seemed not to hear the approaching horses. As Trale mounted, Pixie urged her horse toward him, crying "Run, El Capitan, run!" As the clear, ringing words fell on the air, Lynn T rale gave one terrified glance at the approaching rider and then spurred his horse furiously down the road. He saw the guard, and sharply swerved his horse to the left, and dashed across the rough desert; but the soldiers separated, cutting off his escape, and in another instant he was pulled from his horse and bound. As Pixie rode up, T rale saw for the first time, clearly, the girl who had outwitted him, and the hatred on his face deepened as he noted how small and slight she was. So this was his fate-to be ruined by a slim, gray-eyed girl! Pixie followed the guard back to the fort, where Trale was imprisoned, and the soldiers stared at the black-haired girl who had caught the spy. Colonel Chadwick was there, hatred on his face as he gazed at Trale; and the word went round that Dorothea Chadwick had disappeared. General Kent, admiration in his face, promised Pixie that she would be rewarded for her great service as soon as the proper authorities could be notified. Pixie, her head held high, said proudly, "I do not want any reward except to know that the flag is waving over a land made more safe by one enemy's being placed where he can do no harm." As she spoke she pointed to where the Stars and Stripes waved over the fort. All hats were off, and a cheer rose for Pixie, who thanked them with a smile. General Kent wished to send a guard to accompany Pixie to her home, but she refused this gratefully and rode slowly off by herself. The west was a sea of crimson and gold, and the mountains were bathed in rose. Pixie wheeled El Capitan and looked back at the fort where Old Glory waved against the sunset tinted sky, and rode on across the desert. -Catherine Augustine.

A SONNET

When Darkness spreads its¡¡mantle o'er the earth, And stars peep out to learn what night has brought, When all the birds have ceased to voice their mirth, And all the world is wrapt in pensive thought; 'Tis then we long for glory and renown, To gain ourselves a high and honored name, And help the world its many sorrows drown, And liberty for all the world proclaim. But while we're sitting, idly longing thus, The angel of achievement of the past Seems hovering near to point the way to us, So, if we only rouse ancj follow fast, We need not idly dream and wait the time, But daily fit ourselves the heights to climb. -Vera Righetta.

CONFIDENCE

When silver shafts of morning, sleepy still, Go shadow hunting in each dark ravine; When magic brews behind the misty screen Of every drowsy vale and fairy hill; When sunshine-thirsty poppies drink their fill, When all the wonder things of day are seen; When flower tips are bright, and white, and green; When singing things wake up and thrill and trill; When all of this is God, and God is this; When God makes things like these with love to spare; When everything was made by Him that is, And He, and all His power is everywhere; What hate can overcome a Love like His? Then surely, He is greatest, .. over there." -Doris Packard.

TRIOLET

They have gone to fight 'Neath Democracy's banner. With courage and might They have gone to fight, To uphold the right, In God's chosen manner. They have gone to fight 'Neath Democracy's banner. -Dorothy Dykstra. Page Fifty-eight

STUDENT BODY The outlook at the beginning of this year was far from bright. Besides the usual expenses of entering teams in inter­ scholastic athletics the students were confronted with the Red Cross work and the war relief funds. The students responded so readily to this call for added work that we soon saw our way clear to keep up the regular activities of the school. In athletics our track team was most successful. It won the Valley League Meet, as the result of which the student body now possesses three beautiful cups. The basketball team, how­ ever, lost the championship by only one point. Baseball and Tennis seasons are now on and we have a team in both of these sports. In addition to the regular interscholastic activities the student body this year entered the State Debating League. The team made a good showing although handicapped, for this was the first time a number of the team had ever debated in public. In comparing the expenses of this year with those of previ­ ous years the executive committee feel assured that the student body will come out with a balance on hand. · -Courtney Shaw.

Editor .......................L. B. Smith Asst. Editor ·--------Katharine Roe

This year, as the News and Views in the Claremont Courier has been limited in space to a certain extent, all articles have had to be rather condensed and some less important things left out. However, we have tried to give as accurate and interesting reports of the most important events as the space would allow. Social events and Christian En­ deavor announcements have also been printed, and news from the Camp Fires and Debating Soci­ eties has been given a place. Next year we hope through the co-operation of Mr. Bell to enlarge the entire column from the high school and undertake work more truly journalistic. Events of interest to the com­ munity, local affairs, general school topics, may be written up by willing sfudents and find a place in the column. If such work is done to a large enough degree, and enlarged upon each year, it is possible, and even prob­ able, that a class in journalism may be formed. Such a class introduced into the high school

Asst. Editor .............. Denzil Scott

curriculum would supply the News and Views with so much material of interest as to create a demand for a printing press on which we could print our own paper. All this can hardly be done immediately, because of the smallness of the school, but it is generally understood that the News and V_ i ews will be enlarged and made a· little more interest­ ing to those outside the high school, and we hope the advances made will be utilized in further progress each year. Throughout this year, the News and Views has received from time to time, much valuable help from Miss Katharine Roe, who has faithfully reported all social and Christian Endeavor events, and from Miss Lockwood who has each week devoted a portion of her time in behalf of the News and Views. As Editor of this branch of scholastic activi­ ties, l wish heartily to thank them for their valuable services. Llewellyn Smith.

Qlamp �ires This year, filled as it has been for every one with many interests and activities, has also held a good store for the Camp Fires. Although the Peewakee Camp Fire under Mrs. Sheldon

has discontinued its active organization, the Anamopa Camp

Fire under Miss Scranton's leadership and the Kukumonga Camp Fire with Miss Corwin as guardian held their regular meetings throughout the year. â&#x20AC;˘ Our jolly good times together up in the mountains, out with the birds and flowers, have shown us the beauty of the big out-of-doors all about us, and helped us to do our share in the great work which is being done.

Aside from our regular credit-earning we have tried to do

our best in such work as the Red Cross, and to fit ourselves for whatever we may be called upon to do as our part in the great task. -Helen Pell. Page Sixty-seven
