FOREWORD.

We wish to take this means of thanking all of
those who have helped to make this issue of the
ZONIAN a success. Especially do we thank the
staff of The Panama Canal Press for the "fatherly
interest" they have taken in us. We also want
to thank the Abou Saad Temple for the use of
their mosque for our dance and to thank our
faculty for the helping hand which they have
always given us.

PERSONAL EFFORT.


IT CAN BE DONE.


"Somebody said it couldn't be done,
But, he with a chuckle, replied,
"That maybe it couldn't, but he wouldn't be one
Who would say so 'till he had tried."
So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried, he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn't be done, and-he did it.


Some students in Balboa High School are doing
poor work. How many of us when we come to a
thing which is a little bit hard are willing to say,
"Oh, I can't do that," or to hide behind the old
excuse that one can't be expected to do as much
in the tropics as in the States or elsewhere.
That is an excuse which absolutely can not hold
water. Balboa High School graduates have gone
to some of the best colleges in the United States.
The majority of these graduates rank with the
leaders in their classes. This goes to show that we
can get as much out of school on the Canal Zone
as students do in the States. It would be impossi-
ble for any one to go to college and do good work
if he lacked the elementary training.
I am sure that if we would just apply the theme
of the little verses quoted above and, when we
come to a thing which is hard, sit right down, put
in the effort and stay with it until we have finished,


Somebody O.....r..I, "Oh, you'll never do that-
At least no one ever has done it."
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat
And the first thing we knew he'd begun it.
With a lift of his chin, and a bit of a grin,
Without any doubting or quiddit,
He started to sing and he tackled the thing
That couldn't be done, and-he did it."


then we could with a smile of satisfaction say that
we have done something which perhaps not half
of the rest of the class have done.
\e must not get too ambitious, however, and
look at things in a selfish manner and strive for
personal glory, for it is teamwork that wins the day
every time. In athletics the successful team is the
one that has every player putting in the best in
him and the one that has all its members working
together. A team may be composed of star play-
ers and yet lose most of its games because some
one of its players is striving to gain personal glory
rather than working with the rest of the team.
So, come on, Balboa High School! Let more
of us tackle some of these things that can't be
done, and, let's do them!

12 THE ZONTAN.



FOR VALUE RECEIVED.

SAlfred T. Clifton, 7r., '23.


The sun rose in a blaze over the rim of the
South Pacific, lighting up a broad expanse of
heaving ocean, void of everything, save for a
tiny speck on the far-off western horizon. As one
neared this speck, it gradually formed itself into
an island. It was about a mile in length, flat and
densely wooded, except at the northern end,
where a sharp hill rose abruptly about 300 feet,
covered with sparse grass andafew trees struggling
for nourishment among the loose rocks and bould-
ers. At the base of the hill was a small harbor with
a sand\ beach, where tiny waves lapped gently
on the shore. But the thing one noticed first was
a small sailing ship lying at anchor with her bow
toward the shore, and on her stern in neat black
letters the words Pricilla, East Harniss, Mass.
The Priscilla belonged to Capt. Josiah Whit-
ley, an ex-sea captain and a man of wealth and
sense. He, like many other old "salts" had saved
more money than most people thought, and now
was taking a pleasure trip among the South Sea
Islands, accompanied by his nephew, Larry
Barnes. The Priscilla was of the same build as
most fishing smacks seen off the cod banks of
Newfoundland, except that she had been over-
hauled and had had more sleeping quarters in-
stalled; and also that she had been divested of
that extremely "fihv" odor that almost invari-
ably accompanies most vessels of her kind.
On board, all was silent, save for the creaking of
tackle as the ship swayed genrly with the tide.
Suddenly a boy appeared out of the stern hatch-
wav and stood for a moment surveying the land-
scape, then advanced to the bow, where, leaning
on the rail, he scrutinized interestedly the bay
and shore. It was Captain Whitley's nephew,
Larry Barnes. Larry was a boy of about 17;
well Iuilr, and had dark, curly hair and chestnut-
brown c- es. Hi1 face was tanned by the sun and
wind, and was rather gd,1 to look at. Larry was
a true specimen of the type of boy that grows into
a true and sincere man. As Larry stood watching


the shore in the hope of seeing some inhabitant
of the island, the members of the crew of the
Priscilla appeared one by one and began putting
things in order and clearing the decks, as only the
absolutely necessary things had been done the
night before, when the ship dropped anchor.
Soon Captain Whitlcy appeared and strolled
up to where Larry was standing. "Morning,
Larry," he said, "what do you thinkof the island?"
"Oh, good morning, Uncle Joe," replied Larry,
when he heard his uncle's voice, "Why, to tell
the truth, I don't think much of it, so far. Are
you sure there are people living on it?"
"It's marked 'inhabited' on the chart," de-
clared Captain Whitley. "Maybe it's a mistake,
but I guess we'll find out pretty soon, because if
there are people living here, they'll likely be
curious enough to investigate us."
"I sure hope there are people here, and that we
can get a few pearls," said Larry, as this was their
first stop since they had left Panama.
The Captain and Larry exchanged ideas for
some time more, the latter hoping all the time
that somebody would appear on shore. Finally
the breakfast gong rang, and he followed his uncle
below without having been rewarded in his search.
After breakfast he eagerly sought the deck
again, but was still disappointed. Finally he
determined to ask his uncle to let him row ashore.
He was just about to enter the hatchway when a
sudden shout drew his attention to the shore.
There he saw a number of natives running down
the beach toward the water, some firing guns as
they ran. Suddenly one who seemed to be the
leader, held up his hand for the rest to stop firing.
Then Larry noticed another native in the water,
swimming toward the Priscilla.
"Uncle Joe!" called Larry.
"What's up ?" came his uncle's voice from below.
"Come up on deck, quick!" answered Larry,
watching closely the swimming native, as were all
the crew on deck.






THE ZONIAN. 13


Soon the Captain appeared. When he saw what
was happening, he took his pipe from his mouth,
and going to the rail, looked closely at the scene
being enacted. When the swimmer was about
halfway from the beach to the smack, Larry
saw that he was beginning to tire, although he had
only swam about 150 yards. Evidently he had
been pursued through the woods before he took
to the water, and the chase and swim added, was
telling on him. The leader of the party on the
shore had foreseen this, and as the ship was twice
as far from the opposite shore, and as help from
the ship was certainly not to be counted on, the
object of his late chase could be safely permitted
to swim in reality out to the sharks.
As all this came to Larry, a cold wave of horror
swept over him. "He'll never make it," he mut-
tered hoarsely. The native was about 50 feet from
the Priscilla when a sharp fin cut the water about
10 yards to the left. It moved slowly through the
water, describing an arc behind the struggling
man, and gradually disappeared, only to appear
again coming back. Evidently the swimmer had
seen it. He tried to swim faster, but could not.
He was almost exhausted. Finally he raised his
head and looked toward the ship, a look of mute
agony and appeal in his eyes. The ship was his
only hope.
Larry hesitated no longer. Ripping off his shirt,
he was soon over the rail and moving swiftly
through the water toward the native, who was now
barely making headway.
"Larry! Come back here!" roared Captain
Whitley, but in vain.
In a minute Larry was back at the ship's side
again and the native, now unconscious, was lifted
on board and taken below. The shark had been
frightened away by the commotion caused by
Larry's appearance in the water.
On shore, the leader's rage was terrible to see.
His followers scattered in all directions before him.
He threw his weapons into the sea; and gouged
great furrows in the sand with his hands and feet,
sending it everywhere. Gradually he calmed
down and, calling on all his crude gods, vowed
vengeance on the white man who had cheated him
of his prey. Finally he strode into the woods and
disappeared.


Aboard the Priscilla, after the native had been
brought to consciousness, Captain Whitley called
Larry aside. "Larry" he said, "you did a some-
what rash thing. This fellow may be an enemy
of the tribe or tribes living on the island. Ifhe is,
it may be necessary for us to leave very soon, if
we don't want a pack of cannibals down on us; and
as we've gone this far, we couldn't leave this
fellow here to be murdered, so we may have a
wild man to take care of."
"I'm sorry, Uncle Joe," replied Larry, "but it
was more than I could stand to see the poor
fellow out there with that shark swimming around
him. I did the only thing I could have done."
"Well, we'll have to make the best of it as it is,"
soliloquized his uncle, and that ended the conver-
sation.
Two hours later, as the Captain and Larry
were sitting on deck the former said, "Larry, let's
go see if that fellow can speak English, by any
chance."
The native was lying in a berth in the one extra
stateroom the small ship contained. He appeared
to be asleep, but when he heard the man and
boy, he opened his eyes and looked up. "Are
you the boy that saved Azuni from drowning?"
he asked in English, looking at Larry.
The latter's jaw dropped about 6 inches. Cap-
tain Whitley's pipe fell from his teeth. This
was more than they had expected. "Wh-what
the --?" Larry managed to splutter.
"You are surprised that Azuni talks English,"
said the native with a smile. "If my masters
wish I will tell them my story."
"You bet!" exclaimed Larry interestedly, at
the same time seating himself beside his uncle on
the other berth which the room contained.
"Azuni was born on this island 30 years ago.
My father was the chief of the Azon tribe. When
I was 9, a ship came here and missionaries of the
white man's God went to my people and taught
them the white man's religion. They told my
father they would take me and teach me the white
man's language, and how to read and write, and
after much talk, my father consented. For 5
years I lived with the missionaries and learned to
read and write the white man's language. Then
I returned home, and when my father died, 10
years ago, I became chief of the tribe, as I still am.






THE ZONIAN.


"W\hire men have sometimes come to this island,
and we have traded pearls and shells for the white
man's guns and powder and things we could not
make. One .ai. when my people were diving for
pearls, the chief of the tribe on an island near here,
was visiting me. We were talking together when
an old man of my tribe came up to me. He held
out his hand to me and in it was the largest pearl
ever found here. It was about the size of the first
joint of my thumb. 'For ni master,' he said and
stumbled off. I and my friend stared at it. He
t ik it oat of my hand ant I saw his eyes light
with greed. He returned the pearl and soon after
he left for his i-land. As his canoe pushed off, he
turned and said. 'Some day I shall have your
pearl.' I laughed and thought nothing of it,
but a month later-two days ago-he appeared
with his warriors and said he had come for my
pearl. Then began the battle. We drove them
back, but not off the island.
"Yesterday I and my warriors went out against
them. I was separated and had to flee and hide.
This nmrning they discovered me and gave chase.
The rest my master knows, except that the pearl
is hidden in my hut; and my tribe, I am sure,
is still holding out. I was trying to swim to the
village when my master's son?"-he said the
last qI.i-tirninril -"rescued me."
"He's my uncle," said Larry, after a silciin last-
ing some minutes.
"You'd better go to sleep now," said Captain
\\ hirl:y, thoughtfully, "Come on, Larry."
That evening three natives paddled out to the
Priscilla from the point where Azuni had said


his village was situated. By various signs they
said they wished to see Azuni. After a short
consultation with the latter, they took him ashore,
and after he had thanked Larry as best he knew
how for his brave rescue.
Two days more the Priscilla lay at anchor;
then Captain Whitley ordered everything pre-
pared for departure. While the orders were being
carried out, a canoe put out from the point where
Azuni had landed. Larry, who was on deck,
noticed, as it drew nearer, that it contained Azuni
himself.
The canoe drew alongside and Azuni climbed
to the deck. "I would speak with my master,"
he said, at the same time untying a small pouch
from his girdle. "This is the pearl I told you of,"
he continued, as he drew the bauble from its
pouch.
Larry took it carefully with a smothered cry
of surprise. He called his uncle and then turned
to the examination of the pearl. while e Azuni
and his uncle were talking, he and a few of the
crew sur c\l ed it with interest, until he heard his
uncle's voice say "Good-bye, Azuni," when he
looked up and found Azuni gone.
"Azuni! Your pearl!" he cried as he ran to the
rail. The native was just pushing off in his
canoe. He looked up and a smile flitted across
his face.
"The pearl is yours," he said, "Azuni does not
forget such deeds as 'ours," and he turned and
paddled swiftly to shore, where, after running his
canoe up on the beach, he waved his hand and
then disappeared into the forest.


THE SECRET OF Sl'CCESS.

The stamp .aid, is stiikin to it.

THE MIDNIGHT FOLLIES.
,1 J. 't , ,.


Of course it started all sorts of conjectures when
I appeared in school Tuesday morning with an
unmistakable black eye. It had occurred once
or twice before-once when I was a mere infant
in the second or third era.le and beat up the boy
next door, and once after a basket-ball game with
the class of'20. But this time I had no basket-ball
alibi and knew better than to attempt the well-
known fiction about stubbing my toe and fall-
ing downstairs, so I simply baffled them all with
a tantalizing air of mystery.
Then the Star & Herald flaunted 6-inch head-
lines: "Pete Williams in hands of Police,"
"Not.,r ius thief and gunman captured," "Word
came to us late last night," and so forth and so on.
John Peter Williams has been the idol of Pana-
ma's lawless element for months. He is our one
melodramatic character. Romance's faithful
standby, gunman, thief, wizard, and general
all-around bad man. He used to be only a harm-
less, commonplace young negro. But on one
evil day he sought and obtained employment
in ".'iller's Specialty Shop." While there he
spent his time voraciously reading everything
he could lay his hands on, rapidly dcl loping a
taste for dime novels, detective stories, and penny
thrillers. H, was discharged by the Honorable
Boob .Mlilcr for idleness, and being in need of a
little change, entered (unil itole) a house in the
Canal Zone and appropriated the property of one
of Uncle Sam's e'npl'i..' For this trifling mis-
demeanor he was landed in the "calaboose,"
but not caring for the place he shortly left, without
lpirmi-,i',n, and launched himself fairly in his
"career of crime." He was very spectacular-
robbing the Governor, Judge Hanan, and the
Ancon post office; c,.i.dling capture, boldly
appearing in the streets in broad d.a light, tearing
down the posters offering a reward for his cap-
ture, fighting daily pistol battles with the Panama
pol1., and cnr.rally havingig like an ideal bad
man. He amused me and I enjoyed many a
hearty laugh over the superstition of the negroes


who claimed that he bore a charmed life, could
turn aside the bullets of the police and change his
form at will.
Nevertheless, Peter Williams-or some of his
dusky admirers-systematically went through all
the houses in our neighborhood. They unlocked
the doors and they cut the screens; they cleaned
off the clothes lines and they cleaned out the
ice boxes; and just generally made themselves
obnoxious.
But to come to the point. I spent the best part
of Monday afternoon in Endara's studio having
my "Zonian" picture taken and the rest of the
afternoon shopping. Had two visitors after supper
and when they left settled down to a new maga-
zine and read it through from cover to cover.
Then I decided to do my shorthand. By the time
I finished it was quite late. Even if the whole
family had not been asleep I should have known
it was late because I heard the pop-corn wagon
pass, so I locked up the house and went to bed.
I dreamed that I was blowing soap bubbles,
the biggest of which turned into a red and yellow
balloon, and Florienet stuck a pin into it. It
popped with a terrible noise and woke me up. I
lay in bed trembling with the shock of my sudden
awakening. Hark! What was that? Surely
someone was walking on the back porch-there's
one board that always creaks unless you know
exactly how to step on it.
I listened for a moment, holding my breath,
then sat up cautiously. After a moment I slid
over the end of the bed to prevent the spring
from squeaking and carefully felt about with my
foot to locate my slippers. Smothering an
exclamation as my big toe struck against some-
thing hard, I stooped with elaborate care and ran
my hand along the floor until it closed about the
object in question, my kid brother's baseball bat.
I concluded that it might be useful, also that my
slippers would be a bother. Again came that
ominous creak of the back porch floor. Softly
and slowly I crept down the hall, testing each

board with my foot before trusting it with my
weight, determined that no squeak should herald
my stealthy advance. I suppressed a scream as
I felt a huge cockroach crawl from under my bare
foot and ducked as my face came in contact with
a spider's web, invisible in the darkness. At last
I gained the door to the back porch. Sure enough,
in front of the ice box, dimly silhouetted against
the sky was a dark, blurred figure.
Then, of course, the inevitable, the impossible,
occurred-I sneezed! And it was a perfectly
terrific sneeze. What immediately f.l..... I
remains confused in my mind. The corner of the
ice box door struck me a wicked blow over the
eye-all sorts of skyrockets went off-there was a
crash of breaking glass-a sound of splashing
water-the "flippity flop" of mother's slippers, and
a startled "What the devil--!" in a very fami-
liar masculine voice. Then some one turned on
the light.


Yes, it was l)ad. He had got up to get a drink.
NM sneeze had startled him so that he bumped
against the ice bx door, shoving it in mx eye; and
dropped the jar of ice \vate:r, smashing it to hits.
W\\, m),ther tu:-ned on the light so suddenly,
we sto() I)blinking and 'i ;,_ the situation.
()f course I was told to explain-they always
make im explain. Whi-n I had finished, all the
Irish in D)ad came to the surface; he just threw
back his head and r/ar.:d, an. after a helpless
im'ment's struggle for st -possessi(on, mother
joined him, and laug e.l 'til the tears rolled down
her cheeks. As for me, my eve was hurting to):
much for mn- to appreciate the humor of the
situation. I dropped the ..i.i1i bat which I
still held, and tecliing very much bruised in mind
and b ody, went haughtily back to bed.


YOUNG AND 01D).

.1iari, .1c.1, A '2r.


Oh! Why couldn't she stay home? Her mother
was too cruel. What good would education do a
broken heart? Why did she have to go to school,
where all would soon know of her disgrace? So
thought Peg, as she trudged slowly on her way
to the hated school. Not that she had anything
against the school; it was the children, and es-
pecially unfaithful Pete. She could h ir. lI realize
that it was but last week when he was her ac-
knowledged "fellow." Yes, school was all right
then, for he had gone to and from it with her,
and she sat behind him. Humph! She'd soon
fix that! She certainly wouldn't sit there another
day! The unfaithful thing! The idea of dropping
her for that new girl at school! What if she did
have curls and was so pretty? She's an old "fraid-
cat," that's what she is! Well,she'd show him he
wasn't the only pebble on the beach!
Here she came in sight of the school; upon
her arrival she was surrounded by a group of
young playmates, all anxious to see how she was
bearing up; in their eyes she was a heroine. "Oh,
Peg," said Polly, her most intimate friend, "I
saw Pete come to school with Maru to-day; what's
the matter, had another fight?"
MR 77349-2


"Oh, no," languidly replied Peg, "I'm just tired
of having him trailing along after me evceryw here
I go and I told him so. She's welcome to him, for
all I care!" and she sauntered off, grasping Polly's
arm. "Polly, ,ou wait for me after school and I'll
tell you about it, but Yvo must promise never to
t. 11 a soul."
How Peg e\ r go through that day she never
knew. In the first place the teacher wouldn't
let her change her seat and she must, perforce, sit
behin.I Pete. But the longest, hardest time must
end sometime, and it was with a sigh of relief
that she gathered up her b iks andi prepared to
leave with I'P.i .
Thev walked off, talking of x various happenings
of the daV. Finally, Poll, unable to contain her
curi ,sity, burst forth, "\Vell, aren't you going to
tell? You said you would."
"Criss-cross Yvur heart, hope to die yxou won't
tell?" questioned Peg.
\hen Polly had sworn her secrecy by this for-
mula, Peg '... '."Oh, who cares for him anyway?
He's no good; I just hate him. But, gee! I'd
like to get hold of that NIargy' the bold -l} ,

that I care, though. But anyway, Saturday he
came down to my house and we were swinging in
my backyard when he started to talk about curls.
First he said how much he liked them, then he said
why didn't I wear my hair in curls; then he kept
it up and finally he said how awful cute he thought
Margy was. Then I got mad and said I wouldn't
be like her for anything in the world, and if he
wanted to talk about her all the time for him to go
right straight home. Then he got mad and I got
madder and we had a big fight; then I told him tD
get out of my yard and go on over and play in her
yard if he thought so much about her and her old
curls. That's all; 'cept I saw him walking home
from Sunday school with her yesterday. I guess
she's his 'girl' now, but I don't care. I can get me
another one, but then Pete was so nice. 'Mem-
ber, you promised not to tell, don't forget."
"Oh, no, I won't tell! Oh, I think you're just
grand! But aren't you afraid he'll stay mad?"
"Stay mad! Let him stay mad! Who wants
him to get glad? Not me."
Here the road branched and their ways parted;
Peg following one and Polly the other. "Oh
Peg," called Polly, "wait for me here to-morrow,
%%llI you?"
"Sure, I'll meet you here at 7.30. Don't tell."
That night after supper, Peg sat on the porch
with her sister, who was 'most grown up. Peg was
reading, but from time to time she glanced up at
her sister in the swing; finally she got up and sat
beside her. "Sister," rimiill.
"Yes, dear, what is it?"
"I want to ask you something."
"Well, what is it?"
'"Well, 'spose you were mad at a fellow and
wanted him to make up, how would you do it?"
"Well, that depends. What's the matter, Peg,
mad at Pete? Why not tell me all about it and
then perhaps I can help you. I won't tell."
So once more Peg related the sorry tale; at
its close her sister said, "That is a mix-up;
why don't you just let him drop and get another

"But I don't want anybody but Pete, he's so
nice."
"Then I'd just ignore him for a f.w lay, Act
as if you didn't know he was there. That'll
bring him around in no time. They're all the same,


too conceited. Well, run along to bed now, honey,
and don't forget to tell me how it all comes out.
Good night."
So the next day the ignoring of Pete began. Peg
followed the advice she had received thoroughly;
so thoroughly, that Pete began to avoid even pass-
ing her. Thus the days slowly passed, 'til Friday
arrived. Peg was beginning to get worried.
Suppose her sister was wrong. She knew a lot-
but not about Pete. Oh! all she'd done was to
make matters worse. Anyhow, she'd hurry home
and tell her sister about it.
She had loitered so long that even faithful Polly
had gone on. When she came out, who should she
see, waiting for her under the tree, but Pete.
As she passed he smiled sheepishly and said,
"C'n I walk home with you?"
"Suit yourself," was the laconic reply.
He shuffled along beside her in silence for a
while, then said, "Aw, say, what ya mad at?
Why don't you ever speak to a fella any more?"
"Oh, I'm not good enough to speak to you; I
haven't got curls."
"Aw, lay off that stuff, will ya? I don't like
curls, anyway, you've got lots more hair than
her."
"Thanks, awfully."
"Say, Peg, can I be your fellow again? I don't
like old 'arg". 'tall. She can't do nothing. Gee!
all we did when I went over to her house was to sit
on the steps. We didn't play Injun, or nothing .
Say, why can't I?"
"Well, I won't make any promises, 'cause maybe
I'll change my mind, but I'll think about it. Are
you sure you like me best? Oh! You got a black
eye! Who did it? Did ya have a fight?"
"Oh, I just had a fight with Ben Wilson. He
said you were 1' w--liggcd; but don't you worry,
I made him take it back."
"Oh, the mean thing! I'm not either; it's just
the way I walk, isn't it, Petei"
"Sure, it is; anyway they're a lot straighter'n
they used to be. But you ought to see how I
mussed up Ben's map. He ain't what he used to
be."
"')h, Pete, I think you're the bravest thing!
I guess you're about the bravest boy in all this
school."

"Oh, yes, sure," quickly agreed Pete, wary of With a parting glance Peg set joyfully off for

IN THE HEART OF A GYPSY.

A4,ita II'ood, ';.?.


Q


The last -'. p-' wagon had stopped beneath the
trees. Already the fire had been started, sending
a thin veil of smoke toward the evening skies.
Gypsy women moved here and there, preparing
the evening meal. Gypsy men swo-e nrw and
then while smoking f .Jl-- n 11r; pipes o: feed-
ing the horses. And bright ab ve the m >3n h: t
risen, while a star twinkled here an. there.
Apart from the rest and alone sat a young b i.
His large, black eyes shone from his dark-skinned
face as bright as the stars ab-ve. His 1jng, wavy,
black hair hung carelessly about his faie. In one
hand he held a violin, and in the other, a bow.
He looked toward the sky, and raising his violin,
began to play. His music had a mystical charm,
entrancing one; making the gayest cry, the sad-
dest laugh. Suddenly he .r *1'\I..., as a woman
drew near him.
"Play for us ze music zat iz more lively,"
she said, while a few other women stated them-
selves on the grass beside him.
The boy smiled. He once more raised his violin,
this time playing a lively tune. A tall, slenter gi:1l
aroused herself from the group and began t.) dance.
Faster and faster he played and faster the girl's
feet moved. A twist, a turn, and the music:
stopped. The girl laughed and sank to the
ground exhausted, while the men, who were
greedily eating from a kettle which hung over
the fire, stopped long enough to clap f)r more.
Far into the night the boy played while the
women danced, now and then the men joining
in. Then a man was posted as sentinel while the
rest crept into the wagons or curled upon the
grass to sleep.


It was early in the mining. No one had yet
a-'isen at the summer res: rt when George Mason,
a large theater manager, tired of the city life,
an.l disgusted with the theater, decided to take a
walk. He chose a path that led through the
wo,,s and was soon in the best of spirits. He
had walk:.1 a mile or more when suddenly he
stopped. What was that? A bird? No, it could
not b --ves-it was a violin! Mason's eyes shone
brighter as he listened. A smile parted his lips.
He stood motionless until the last note had faded
away.
"By Jove!" exclaimed 1 i..n. "That's music!
But who in the world could be playing out here
at this time of da ?" For a minute or two he
stood wondering, then shrugging his shoulders,
walked on.
After walking quite a distance, Mason heard
the music again. It sounded nearer this time-
very close at hand. He stopped and looked about
him. About a hundred feet away a fire was burn-
ing near a red painted wagon.
"Gypsies! Great Scott! This is no place fr
me! They'll steal the last piece of clothing off
my back if they find me here!" exclaimed. Mason
to himself.
Again the violin was playing. Mason's face
was full of emotion. Never before had music
had this effect upon him. When the music ceased
he took a step forward. There, almost at his feet,
half hidden by the brush, sat a '. p,. boy, a
violin held carelessly in one hand.
Upon hearing the movement of the brush the
boy looked up at Mason with a startled look upon
his upturned face. As quickly as a frightened deer
he arose and faced Mason.







THE ZONIAN.


"What iz et zat you care for? You are one of
ze police, yes?" he asked, with a frightened look
toward the w a.ins. "Ze man zat you desire long
ago has been gone.. We know nozings of heem."
"Here, 6b,," smiled Mason, "I'm no police.
I've been listening to your playing. Boy, you're
wonderful!" The boy smiled, and looked a little
more at ease. He grasped his violin tighter and
smiled, .hi,.ini a row of white teeth as he an-
swered, "Oh, but ze fright you L;e': to me! Yes,
I have been playing ze sweet music many years.
I long to play more better. N1. name is Pietro."
"Here, Pietro, if you will come and play in my
theater I'll give you Sloo a month to start with."
Poor Pietro! He had never had as much money
in his life. Why in two months he would have as
much as Zela, the queen, had in her little silver box.
"But ze men of my tribe!" he cried, not yet
over the effect the thought of so much money
had upon him. "Zey will run after me! Zey
will catch me and put me in ze heavy ropes!"
"Here, here, lad! No, they won't! I'll see to
that! You come with me if you want to and
they'll not get you."
Pietro paused a minute. His eyes glistened.
He looked toward the camp and then, turning
to Mason, whispered, "Come, let us go! Quick,
before zey mees me!" and started down the path
with MI..a in at his heels.
At the hotel, \lMas-n hastily packed his satchel
and sent a few telegrams to New York. After
that he went to the village and bought a suit of
clothes for Pietro, for they were to take the first
train to New York.
Whey they arrived in New York the news had
already spread through the theater lovers' world
that Mason, the theater king, was bringing a
surprise to the city.
The next night the Zenith Theater was crowded
with curious people. Old, tired, business men
had been .Ir.ii a,'d from comfortable chairs at home
1, curious wives. (igellirnL shop uirl., seated in
the cheaper seats, chewed pumn noisily between
their conversations, which were L'.. n.:r.ill of more
,lain- than an,,. rliini else. Stretching their necks
here and there, they commented on the people
constantly _.ntr.rinu the theater. \1.rr..nly look-
ing women chaperoned their daughters to the
better seats, while fashionably dressed parties
took the boxes above.


At last the curtain went up. Not a sound was
heard throughout the audience. People craned
their necks, eagerly searching for the surprise.
Then Mason stepped upon the stage. He ex-
plained how he had come to find Pietro. At the
signal to enter, Pietro stepped upon the stage.
Giving three low sweeping bows he advanced
toward the center of the stage. It all seemed
very queer to him.
The shopgirls whispered to one another,
"Ain't he handsome?" and "Hasn't he beautiful
hair and cyc'.cs while the poor daughters chaper-
oned by matronly women could only sigh, and the
tired business men smiled and looked at their
curious wives, who had a far-away look in their
eyes.
Unaware of it all, Pietro raised his violin to his
chin. He forgot the audience before him. He
forgot all except the birds, the trees, and the blue
skies of the springtime of which he was playing.
On and on he played, a certain note of longing
and anguish in his music. The tired business men
forgot to be tired, the giggling shopgirls forgot to
giggle, while the matronly women forgot the
daughters at their sides.
When the music stopped the applause was
immense. It seemed as though the very walls
with their painted figures would shake and fall.
Never before had the theater known such ap-
plause.
Pietro, still in a daze, was clapped on the back
by the eager Mason, and told to play more.
This time he played a lively tune. Only two
nights before he had played this very tune and
Luna had danced to it. He could see her now,
her snappy eyes, her smile and glistening white
teeth, her long braids of thick black hair. Again
he was .ippllIu.ldd, as before, but refused to play
again.
"That's all right, Pietro," said MNIi ..n, "I know
how you feel. Just step into that room and I'll
see you there in a minute."
Wliin Mason returned he could find Pietro
nowhere, but on the table in the little room he
found a scrap of paper, and on it was written:
I could stand ze noizes of ze veety no longer. I long for
zat which I leave behind me. Ze money is nozing to me.

CRISTOBAL COI.AING STATION.
L ', .
iI


The Cristobal coaling station is one ofthelargest
and most modern of its type in the world. It
is about 450 feet by 2,000 feet in size, situated on
an island in Colon Harbor, and connected with the
mainland by a d:awb:idge. On the mainland is
the checking-in shed, where all the t.i.nmmers
and other wo:kmen are checked before going to
work. Here they are given shovels, which are
their passes to the island. Two motor boats, each
holding fr-om
90 to Ioo men,
carry them to
work. In ad-
dition there
are two small
motor boats
for carrying ,
m :s-'a .-_ be-
tween the sta-
tion and ships.
The i.la,,in .t
and oil for the
use of these .
boats is kept w ..
on the island,
in specially
constructed
tanks. One

island is occu-

necessary machinery for hnn lling it, and at the
other end are the office, oilhouse, storehouse,
and machine shop. The storehouse holds all the
extra part; of machinery besides the different
electrical appliances, belts, and other articles used
in the station. All minor repairs can be made in
the machine shop, in which is the 550-cubic foot
air compressor that supplies the station with air
force. The station is able to take care of itself
in practically every way. The electricity which
runs the plant is supplied by four big trans-


farmers; three of these are in service all the time
while one is kept in reserve in case of a break-
down. These transformers will supply from iio
to 2,300 volts.
The coaling plant has a capacity of 500,000
tons of coal. At present there are 58,000 tons for
commercial use and 52,000 tons belonging to the
Navy. The coal is stored in a larg: bunker 750
feet long by 450 feet wide. This is di rided into two
parts, one of
which, hold-
ing the Navy
coal, is under
water. Over
the bunker

is tied up at the station between the island and
the mainland. Here is the steam plant, which
consists of four towers each having a steel boom

hold by means of cables. It is then hauled up
by the cables anti runs back into the tower by
'r, .. of gravity. Here the digger empties into a
car and when the car is full, it is started and
travels down the viaduct toward the bridge, where
a man takes charge and turns it onto the bridge.
The car is then over the bunker where it is dumped
and sent back. This operation is repeated until
the ship is unloaded.
When a ship is coaled, the ',ri 1l'. moves down
over the coal heap and the digger begins to take its
;-ton mouthfuls. These are placed in the cars and
the cars move down opposite the ship. Here the
coal is dumped into hoppers which drop it onto a
42-inch rubber bAt, called the approach belt.
W while the coal is p.i -in.. ove- this belt it isv. .i-' I
by a machine that can weigh even the "wear" on
the belt. The belt runs parallel to the ship and
drops the coal onto another belt called the boom
belt that runs out to the ship. When there are
n: ships to be loaded the cars are filled and held.
This means that at a m nment's notice :,:- .tons
of coal can be 1! aleJ.
At the end of the station is the wharf bunker,
which is stationary. The ship is run alongside


the bunker and the coal is dumped into the hoppers
and down the chutes to the ship. Originally
these chutes were stationary, but now they can
swing in a wide arc and deposit the coal in several
places. This does away with the one big pile that
had to be trimmed, thus saving time and money.
This bunker loads at the rate of 500 tons per hour.
In order to have communication with all parts
of the plant, 30 telephones were installed in the
most prominent places. Whenever any one of the
supervisor's force is needed and he can not be
reached by telephone, a loud whistle is blown.
Each man has his own signal and in this way he
can be summoned with the least possible waste of
time. The station employs between i,ooo and
I,200 silver men and 0o gold men, work in three
shifts of 8 hours each, and has every convenience
such as drinking water and wash rooms.
Several notable records have been made at the
station. On November 12, the collier Ulysses
discharged 12,030 tons in 15 hours and 25 minutes.
This is an illustration of the past work there.
\~l:iy improvements effected in the plant since it
was built have made the station one of the most
modern and efficient coaling stations in the world.


TRY SMILING.

When the weather suits you not-try smiling,
When your coffee is not hot-try miilii';
When your neighbors don't do right or your rela-

Sure it's hard, but don't you think you might try
smiling?
It can not make them worse-just mililing,
And it seems to help your case, brighten up a
Iel ,m v place,

UN SITIO HERMOSO.

Theodore C. Knapp, 'z1.
Estaba rendido cuando me pare cerca de la
orilla de un hermoso arroyo en el medio de un
bosque. Que hermoso sitio era! El agua se
percipitaba bailando y cantando su canci6n que
me hizo el coraz6n brincar de alegria. Habian
violetas a cada lado del arroyo oscilando de un
lado a otro con el viento suave mientras su aroma
llenaba el aire. Los Arboles estaban mas verdes y
b:illantes que lo usual. Los paja:-loe s ierboles
cantaban sus aires me!6dicos. De vez en cuando
una mariposa volaba de una floor a otra perezosa-
mente chupando el dulce nectar de las flores. El
cielo que estaba azul y despejado, poco a poco
empez6 a tefiirse de muchos colors bellos pues n2
el oeste se ponia el sol. A media que desaparecia
el sol, disminuia el canto de los pijaros, hasta que
s6lo se oia el murmullo del agua y el susurro del
viento en las ramas de los Arboles.

LA VOZ DE JUAN-CHIQUILLO YV- \-
DEDOR DE PERIODICOS.
Theodore C. Knapp, '2..
No habia nada de particular en ese joven que
Ilamara la atenci6n. No era su apariencia que
hacia a los transeuntes deternerse, sino su voz.
Juan era un huerfanito que vendia peri6dicos en
las esquinas concurridas. Era casi impossible
pasar y nodetenerese para oir su voz debil y mel6-
dica. Tenia una atracci6n extraia que era como
un imin sobre el tropel confuso de transeuntes
Hombres apresurados y angustiados inevitable-
mente se veian I.lli -.,l ,, a detenerse y a comprar.
Hombres avarientos metian las manos en los
bolsillos y compraban sin saberlo. Otros daban
el precio de su desayuno para comprarle a Juan.
iPorqu& hacian eso? iQue recibian. Nada sino
esa simple respuesta infundida de miedo: "M I hi-

Cuando tenia hastante edad para caminar sin

Fsscoi un vestido de muchos colors, y cuando
estuve lista, me fui.
Caminaba por la via lActea, y, como hacen
todos jovenes, me ocupaba con muchas cosas que
no eran ce mi negocio. Examinaba todas las
cosas, y siempre me tropezaba con otras estrellas
mas viejas. Ellas me regafiaban, y, sin parar, me
escapaba y seguia mi camino.
De repente me hall cayendo! Por haberme
ocupado del negocio de otros, me habia resbalado
y caido de la via lactea; me cogi, y vi en frente de
mi la luna! Determine visitarla, pero cuando me
acerque a ella, ay! que grande! El viento estaba
muy fuerte y como soy muy pequefia, me choque
contra la luna. Otra vez me hallaba cayendo.
M:irte se present en mi camino! Tropec6 con
el, y como era aun mas grande que la luna, no
pude mas que caer con gran velocidad.
Cuando vi que no podia pararme, determine
escoger un sitio favorable para posarme. El

THE ZONTAN.


A TRIP INTO THE INTERIOR.

Lawrence Hoppe, '22.


On a Monday night ;n January we left Panama
City on the gasoline boat .ionl bound for Yaviza,
a town in the province of Darien, near the
Colombian border. By 3 o'clock, Tuesday after-
noon, we arrived at La Palma, a native village at
the mouth of the Yuyra River. Here we put over
until the next m..rnirii when we continued our
journey up the Yuyra. At noon we arrived at
Real de Santa Maria, where we put in to unload
supplies. While here some of us landed to visit
the village. The natives were excited and followed
us around; a white man is not a common sight in
this part of the Darien. My father tried to snap
a picture of a group that followed us, but they
scattered like quail at the sight of a camera.
Wednesday night we went jacking f:or crocodiles
below Real. We killed quite a number of small
ones. When we had skinned them, the crew of our
boat, mostly natives, ate them raw. Thursday
morning we started up the Chucanaque River, on
our way passing flocks of monkeys and parrots
in the jungles along the banks of the river. At
noon we arrived at Yaviza. The entire village
came down to the beach to greet us, as they had
learned of our coming from a native who had
preceded us from Real. Here we took up our
quarters in part of the schoolhouse. We then went
through the village to look it over and also to buy
some eggs and chickens from the natives. We
were surprised at the cheapness of foodstuffs,
eggs being 15 cents per dozen.
Saturday morning we took a piraqua and
headed up the Chico for the Choco Indian village,


but we met the natives ..nmili down to Yaviza
dressed for a holiday. These Indians are well-built
and athletic. The men's everyday costume consists
of an antia, or loincloth, but their holiday attire
is much r.ore resplendent. They wear the antia,
as usual, and also wear large silver cuffs, silver
earrings, beaded headbands, beaded belts across
their shoulders, and instead of a string to hold the
antia, they have a beaded belt about 6 inches
wide. Around their necks they wear necklaces of
tiger's teeth and silver trinkets. Their bodies
are painted with black stripes and their faces with
red and black stripes. They also dye their teeth
black. The women wear short skirts about 18
inches long, made of red print cloth, wrapped
around the hips. They also paint themselves,
but d- nort wear so many beads or trinkets as
the men. The babies are carried on their backs.
Weapons consist of bows, arrows, spears, knives,
and machetes. A few have muzzle loaders of the
percussion cap type.
These Indians joined our party and we con-
tinued up the river to a deep hole where we dyna-
mited for fish. For some reason the fish did not
float on the surface, but sank. The Indians dived
for them. Some stayed under the water for at
least 3 minutes, coming up with a big 5-pound
sabado in their mouths and several fish in each
hand. We got about 200 big fish, most of which
we gave to the Indians, keeping a few for our-
selves. We gave the Indians some presents of
beads and tobacco for which they were very

thankful, showing their appreciation by giving us
hog meat, chickens, and sugar-cane. We returned
to the village and the Indians pitched camp on the
outskirts. They soon started Hlcklir. into the
village dressed in what they considered civilized
costumes; sometimes it consisted of only a hat
or a vest.
They came up to our quarters to see our guns
and knives and other things. They would jabber
anill n themselves about the l't-irfl things and
then leave. I took my rifle, a .351 W i\nh'.-'-r,
high powered, self-loading, and gave it to the
chief to try. The men gathered around us to
watch this new type of weapon. The chief aimed
at a stick in the stream and blazed away. I
told him to pull the trigger, which he did, firing
the gun again. At this he grew excited and
emptied the clip which contained five cartridges.
The other Indians attributed this to something
mysterious and perhaps evil, for they fled. The
chief was too dumb-founded to move. After
some time the Indians returned, which they did
mostly from curiosity. We then explained the
working of the piece to them. They soon under-
stood and then all wished to trade for a rifle.
We also showed them a .45 automatic and fired
it into the ground several times. They tried to
dig out the shell tip, but could not reach it. At
this they were very much surprised. They like
.in% things bright, such as silver, but L'..1 they will
not touch, Jl.ininl .' it is .l.\i's money, which
superstition dates back to the Spanish invasion
under Balboa. The Cuna Indians, whose country


lies about 2 days' travel by piraqua from Yaviza,
will not even permit a white man to enter their
country. If any try they are promptrl killed and
beheaded, as the Cuanas are headhunters. Some
i.;, that they are cannibals, but of this I am not
sure.
Soon the Indians started going to the China-
man's to get drink. They are very fond of liquor
and have a liquor of their own which they make
'.v having the women chew corn and yam roots
and spit it in a bowl. This they allow to ferment
and it makes a very intoxicating drink. The
Chinaman is the only merchant in the village.
In fact in all the interior villages he is the business
man. He issues wooden money, which is a chip
of wood with Chinese writing on it. This money
he gives in exchange for hardwoods, rice, rubber,
and like articles. The natives use it only at his
store.
We tried to get some pictures of the Indians,
but they were afraid of the camera. One old
woman fled into the piraqua and, with the aid of
her husband, paddled away; however, the camera
was quicker than she. At last, after much demon-
strating of the camera and giving of presents, we
managed to get the chief and some of his men to
pose. The Indians stayed a few days in Yaviza;
then they started to leave for their own village.
At the same time we took our piraqua and went
downstream to Real, where we met the Anton
11:ildineL up lumber. When she had finished we
started on our homeward journey.

We were having a great time throwing snow-
balls. The sun shone down with its full heat on
tYe road. The ice plant in Balboa cleans the ice
ard frost off the pipes in the cold storage rooms
three or four times a year. The ice and f:ost is
generally thrown in the rear of the ice plant but
for the first time it was thrown on the sid walk in
frcnt of the building. We made snowballs and
threw at working men coming home to lunch and
at others going back to work at 12 o'clock. Some
would say "let them fly," while others became
angry. Soon all the men had returned to work
and we started throwing at passing autos; since
this was dangerous we threw at negroes. One
man came along on a bicycle rnd we fired our
snowballs at him. He jumped off the wheel and
threw st nes at us, but our snowballs drove him
away. We kept up our throwing; several times
I tih uL'Lht of leaving and going home to eat my
lunch, but I could not leave the sport I had not
ini' L d for 7 years.
"Cheese it," shouted some one; but it was too
late.
"All right, you kids start marching," ordered
the "cop," who came through the ice plant from
the rear entrance.
Marching in two's we started up the street to
the clubhouse. At the corner of the commissary
we kept straight on toward the clubhouse.
"Come on, turn down he:e, don't try to get
funny, you kids know where you're Li-iL," he
ordered.
We started down the street for the police sta-
tion. Every boy was silent and pale. Cries of
"W'hat did you do now, Brownie?" "You will,
will you?" and "What's the trouble?" were asked
of us as we marcfd to the police station. At
last we arrived at the station.
"So you got that gang at last, Slim?" asked the
desk sergeant.
"Yes, I got them, and we'll make an example of
them for the rest of the toughs in this town,"
answered Slim.


"What's your name? Where do you live? How
many times have you been here before?" were
some of the many questions asked of us.
"You kids stand in line over by that wall and
stand at attention too," ordered the desk ser-
geant.
We lined up against the wall and stood at at-
tention. We stood for half an hour when we began
to get tired ofstanding and leaned against the wall.
"Stand straight there; get away from that
wall," commanded the sergeant.
Someone brought the sergeant's lunch. He
sat in f;ont of us and ate it. We sure were hungry,
but it didn't look as if we were going to eat
lunch that day.
"The judge will soon be in, won't he, Bill?"
asked the desk sergeant of a policeman entering
the door.
"Yes, I think he just called the chief," was the
answer.
At the mention of "judge," a lump rose in my
throat, as I didn't care to go before a judg:. Two
hours passed and we were still at attention.
"Got my kid there?" asked a voice, as the door
opened and a man's head appeared.
"Yes, sir, we got him," replied the desk ser-
geant.
"All right, keep him and give a good jail sen-
tence,"said the man, leaving. The boy was ready
to cry. Tears formed in his eyes.
Another hour passed and we were still standing
at attention. The telephone rang, very few words
were exchanged, and then the desk sergeant turned
to us.
"The judge won't be here to-day, so you kids
can beat it. I'll let you know when to show up for
trial."
There was a rush for the door. It seemed good
to be out of that place. Each boy scattered home
to get something to eat. For several days each
of us waited to be called to court but we were
never summoned. I am cured of throwing snow-
balls in Panama.

PAAM.\a, A l.FGIfND.

Mae 7. Wvnnr. '21.


Did you ever hear the legend of how Panama
got its name? Of course there are legends and
legends. Some say the name means "plenty of
fish," and others that it means "plenty of butter-
flies." But the tale that, to me, always seemed
the most probable, is this:
\lain, many years ago, before ever the great
Panama Canal idea was conceived; before the
Spanish conquistadoress" braved the unknown
terrors of the sea to wring a fortune from the new
world; long before even Columbus set sail to
discover a new route to India; before Lief Eric-
son touched at the coast of Labrador; 'way, 'way
back in the beginning of things, when the world
was young, and foolish perhaps, these events of
which I tell took place.
Between two great continents lay a narrow strip
of land, a garden spot of the earth. It was a land
of fruits and flowers, of birds and butterflies, of
sunshine and joy, of life and love; a land of
sun-kissed hills and pleasant valleys-a land
"of beauty and a joy forever."
1minyu the pleasant hills and valleys of this
earthly paradise wandered an Indian tribe.
Legend tells us little of them, save that they were
a comely and a goodly band. They wandered
from day to day, from spot to -I '. happy and at
peace with the world and one another. When
they hungLri.,l, tlh.. picked the fruit of the trees,
hunted in the forests or fished in the streams.
\ hen they LgrL tired i' '. threw themselves upon
the soft grass and slept. Theirs was an idyllic
'. \-rT,. I, ., h:'ppl carefree, full of the joy of life
and the love of living.
But one sad day all this was i h:iiiL'..-l. The tribe
became careless and unkind to one another, quar-
rels arose, fists were resorted to, and fin.dlA sticks,
stones, and other weapons. The serpent )iscord
had crept into this tropical Eden and had it in its
power where, slowly but surely, he squeezed the


lifeblood, kindness, and unselfishness, from it
drop by drop.
The tribe broke up and drifted one from the
other, bickering still. The noise of their quarrel-
ing frightened the fish from the streams and the
birds and beasts from the forest. The fury of their
anger withered the delicate blossoms, the sun hid
his face for shame, the fruits ceased to ripen, the
whole land drooped and famine set in. One by one,
then in increasing numbers, the tribe decreased.
Soon all had starved to death but one family.
They were a hardy few, but weakening fast. Soon
only five were left-the mother, father, and three
strapping sons. One day they held a family
council to decide what was to be done. Their
situation was becoming desperate, all were gaunt
and sunken-eyed, all were weak from hunger.
Finally they came to the conclusion that one must
sacrifice his life to save the others, but could not
decide which one it would be. None would agree to
draw lots and soon they were quarreling bitterly.
At last, the mother, being the weakest, became the
victim.
Anyone passing a few moments later would
have seen a savory pot of stew cooking over a
rn, .inL' fire and a group of four hungry-eyed men
each holding a little pan in his hands and eagerly
sniffing the aroma. Ah! It was done; the father
was helping himself when the voice of a son cried,
"Give me a pan o' Ma!"
The waves hl:ppin the beach caught at the
words eagerly and murmured "Pan-a-ma." As
the meal came to a close, the rain came down in
torrents to baptize the land; the wind blew hard,
roaring, "P:in :1 ma'" The thunder rumbled
'1'.in .1 mi:i," and the lightning wrote it in
characters of living flame across the sky. "Pana-
ma." So "Panama," the land becami-, and
"':m:i:im:11:1 it remains.

A SENIOR TRIP TO PEARL ISLANDS.

Gertrude -an Hard::'e.d, '2,'.


Very early Saturday morning my slumbe:rs
were rudely interrupted by the loud and per-
sistant ringing of the telephone. I ran to answer
it, glancing at the clock in passing. Good heavens!
A quarter to two! I knew immediately what the
call was for.
"Hello?" I said timidly.
"Hello? Hello? Hello!" said the voice of a
well-known Senior.
"Please speak a little louder, I can't hear you.
Are the girls going on the Senior trip?"
"Why, yes." I answered.
"Well, we're supposed to start at 2." With
which my angry summoner hung up.
I awoke my sister; we dressed hurriedly and
literally ran down to the dock. We were greeted
with a stony silence which was worse than awful.
We had been late, and,what was more, we had kept
the entire crowd waiting. As soon as we had
clambered meekly aboard, the Alargaret put out
to sea, headed for the Pearl Islands.
Various members of the crowd tried to sleep,
but various others by exercising their vocal
cords (I dare not call it singing), or by raving in
a loud voice about the moon, the waves, sea-
sickness, shipwreck, and other trivialities, made
sleeping impossible.
"\lc thought I heard a voice cry 'Sleep no
more', was the slogan, motto, and password.
Dawn came at last, and each of us breathed a
sigh of relief that we had been spared the humilia-
tion of being seasick. The sun came out of the
ocean like a great ball of fire. The islands came
into sight and the panorama was beautiful. The
islands stretch along the ocean for about 3 or 4
miles, making a kind of half circle. We were
headedforoneofthelargest,which has avillageon it.
Many and often were the ejaculations of fear
and nervousness as the party scrambled over the
side into the wobbly cayuco and the beautiful red
panga which nevertheless brought us safely to
shore where we were immediately surrounded by
pearl venders.
MR 77349-3


These natives dive for pearls and carry them
about their person in a most careless manner.
One exhibited his, rolled up in a $5 bill. Pearls
can be had for almost nothing.
While we prepared our breakfast, the people
stood about in a curious but respectful audience.
They seemed greatly amused by such expressions
as:
"For the Kaxes!"
"Oh, for the love of John!"
"Ye gods!"
"Gee, ma Neddy!"
And really, who can blame them? They must
have liked it though, for they honored us with
their presence again at noon.
Breakfast finished, most of us went up into the
village. This is like all other native villages except
for its being a little less civilized. The church
is at the highest point, and the rest of the houses
are scattered about it. A winding path sometimes
almost as wide as a road, sometimes too narrow for
two people, leads from the church down to the
beach. A card is tacked on the door of each shack,
stating that it has been inspected by the Govern-
ment; but from the appearance of the huts, we
judge that the inspector must have been blind.
\1..ng-els, pigs, and chickens ran in and out the
huts at will and followed us all over, along with
the children, and some of the grown people. After
bargaining for pearls and visiting the village we
went swimming.
The beach is one of the best I have ever seen.
It stretches along for about a mile, and its fine
sand is almost white. Another island with a
beach is almost opposite, but the rest of the sur-
r..t li_,I islands are barren. They are of a black
rock formation with no beach, and the sparse
vegetation is all on the top of the island-the
only place where soil collects. There are many
caves and openings probably worn out by the
sea; some of them contain interesting formations
and shells. On exploring these tiny "warts on

the sea" one thinks what an ideal place they
would make for a moving-picture company to
gather "atmosphere."
By 4 o'clock we were assembling aboard the
boat.
"Well," said a certain youth, as he pulled him-
self aboard, "who'll be the first to get seasick?"
We all Ilaughtd, but each prayed fervently that
it would not be him. When we got outside the
islands the .i igali'et began disputing to herself
as to which side she wished to roll. She began to
experiment and suddenly I heard a shout of de-
rision. I stuck my head into the cabin, and there,
over the side, hung the last-mentioned youth,
with apparently no thought in life, but to be
generous to the fish.
As the Margaret was in a constant state of in-
decision from then onward, and as the sea was
trying to help her by practical demonstration,
others began to stick their heads over the side,
sheepishly at first, but even anxiously as the
debate became more vehement. By 6 o'clock all
forms, stages, and kinds of seasickness could be
seen at a glance. One of our dinifi,'. Seniors
and one of our most dignified faculty la\, in
complete abandon, upon the floor. A certain


corpulentJuniorlmistook these two for the promen-
ade and proceeded to act upon his mistaken idea.
You can imagine how much pleasure he got from it.
By way of variation, our brilliant red panga
severed relations, and, in trying to recover it, we
lost the boathook, so we had to leave it to the
disposition of the waves. The Margaret must
have been very sad at the parting for she gave
vent to her grief by the most fantastic contortions
imaginable; whereupon many stuck their heads
out of the windows so that their tears might flow
into the sea, and not swamp the boat.
When we reached the channel, the sea became
quiet, also the passengers. It seemed, both
figuratively and literally, like the calm after a
storm. People began to look more respectable
and to swear that they hadn't been really sea-
sick, or that they had draped themselves so
charmingly out of the windows because it appeared
to be the fashion, but the "seagoing" ones knew
better.
How welcome was the sight of land and the
rattle of jitneys! Good-bys and thanks were
hurried but sincere, and a happy, tired, and be-
..raqi'led troop straggled off to "Home and
Mother."

KNOW YE ALL, BY THESE PRESENTS That we, the
Class of '21, being sane of judgment and sound of
mind, knowing, that before the passing of another
6 months we will be no more of the Balboa High
School world, do deem it both wise and necessary
to make, publish, and declare this, our last will
and testament, hereby revoking all former wills
and bequests and devises, of whatever nature by
us made.
First: To our beloved class adviser, M\ ,i. Frost,
we give our sincerest thanks for the way she has
piloted our ship to its port.
To our honored faculty we leave our best wishes,
our appreciation, and the full extent of our sym-
pathy; the growth of which has been in direct
proportion to the broadening of our minds.
In view of the fact that the Class of '20 "regret-
fully relinquished" the right and privilege of oc-
cupying the desks in rows 7 and 8 in the assembly
hall of our beloved high school 'luilldir., and, fur-
thermore, that they willed and bequeathed to us
all the dignity, reserve, and power belonging to a
senior class, together with its rare ability to dis-
cuss and decide questions of importance without
the usual quarrels and contentions, we, having
availed ourselves of aforesaid gifts, and the same
still being in serviceable condition, do relinquish
same to the Class of '22, with the best of will.
Second: The individuals of the Class of '21
bequeath their several gifts as follows:
Charlie Grobe leaves his position of president
with all its honors, advantages, and disadvantages
to any member of the Class of '22 who shall be as
well fitted for it as he was.
Theodore Knapp donates to the entire Fresh-
man Class, his studious habits.
Elois Pearson bequeaths her daintiness to
Jimmie Miller.
Elizabeth Twitchell leaves her quiet disposition
to Ruth Foster.
Annie Boyd requests that her dislike for dancing
fall to Earl Palhemus.


Cody van Hardeveld gives the extreme pleasure
(?) of rescuing the perishing on the Pearl Island
trip to Irene Stewart.
To Bessie Watkins is bequeathed May Duncan's
ability to "rough it" and to make the best of every-
thing.
George Capwell leaves his love of athletics to
MI:iriric Gerrans.
Alice Bleakley, having no further use for her
extensive kilcll:e of Latin, leaves the same
to the safe-k.c ping of Adlais Claybourne.
Eleanor Bello surrenders her admirable self-
possession to Margaret Johnson.
Bill Allen presents his ego and his strident voice
to Agnes Gardner, the latter to be employed
especially in the classrooms.
Ruth Boyd endows Dorothy Dockery with her
queen-like dignity.
George Danskin inflicts upon Lawrence Hoppe
his garrulousness in the hope that the latter,
thus endowed, will also be heir to a little life,
liberty, and pursuit of happiness.
Ethel Getman entrusts her Spanish vocabulary
to Elizabeth Bradley, charging her to increase
its volume.
lM:e Wynne bequeaths her cleverness and de-
lightful giggle to Edith Foster.
Leonard Landers leaves his unfailing skill at
basketball to the Freshman girls' team. We trust
that they will not win last place by forfeits here-
after.
To Mary Slack, Lois Wiggins leaves her unob-
trusive qualities.
Cathryn Kaye gives her intensive social career
to Arthur Krause.
Louis O'Brien, always willing to help the needy,
wills his agility to Gladys McCullen.
Catherine Parmeter leaves her sweet disposition
and even temper to Alice Reese.
Gertrude John has had many hints as to the
disposition of her demure demeanor and has
finally, after profound consideration, decided that
Doroth6 Abendroth is the most in need.

CLASS PROPHECY.

AMarie Mlc.lihon, '21.


NEW YORK, N. Y.,
June 2, 1931.

DEAR ELEANOR:
You don't know how sorry I am that you
couldn't arrange to come to the reunion. I am
inclosing a newspaper J;ipl[.i, giving a complete
account of the wedding and reunion.
I am just so rushed for time, trying to get my
things ready for the trip, but when we arrive at
Mae's, I'll write you again.
With love,
M'rie.

"One of the prettiest weddings of the season
was that of Miss Catherine Parmeter, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. F. S. Parmeter, of Iowa, to Mr.
Guy Van Horn, who is very well known in New
York. The R. Rev. Theodore C. Knapp, a former
classmate of Miss Parmeter, officiated.
"Society was well represented at this charming
affair, for though \Il-i Parmeter is but a recent
arrival among us, she easily won the hearts of all,
and is often spoken of as one of the most popular
members of the younger set.
''"i., Parmeter, as many already know,
received a large part of her education on the Canal
Zone, graduating from the Balboa High School


with the Class of'21. Miss Parmeter endeavored
to have as many as possible of her former class-
mates present at the ceremony.
"The Class of '21 has gone down in the annals
of Balboa High School as being the finest class
ever graduated, and it has produced a great many
famous men and women.
"Quite a surprise was the huge old-fashioned
wedding cake, baked by Miss May Duncan, now
chief cook in the White House. This cake was the
gift of Miss Duncan to her classmates.
"Immediately after the ceremony, the members
of this class,with the exception of the bride, held a
reunion in the form of a class meeting. The follow-
ing is a report of this meeting as written by the
Secretary:
"\l.ctiing called to order by the President,
Charles A. Grobe. Motion made and carried that
each member present give an account of himself,
either in a speech or by an exhibition of his
talents. The meeting then became informal and
the following impromptu program was carried out:
r. Sketch-School Days. Cast-Famous Bissell and Dan-
skin Troupe, ably supported by the well-known actress, Miss
Fiorienet Matter, and Mrs. H. E. Bissell, n&i Ethel P. S.
Getman.
2. Toe Dance, Lois Wiggins.
3. Original Reading. Miss Mae J. Wynne, who has won
her laurels in the literary field.

6. Miss G. John, bareback rider of Bailey's Circus, made a

the near future.
7. The R. Rev. T. C. Knapp, closed the meeting and, im-
mediately after, delicious refreshments were served.

"Those present at the meeting, not taking part
in the program, were: Mr. and Mrs. George L.
Capwell, nie Gertrude Van Hardeveld; Mr. Cap-

as a second Babe Ruth. Mr. Leonard Landers,

bell, snake keeper of Bailey's Circus; Miss Eliza-
beth Twitchell, matron of St. John's Orphan
4svlum; Miss Cornelia van Hardeveld, A. B.,
A. M., Ph. D. At the close of the meeting, each
member received a jar of'M'rie's Freckle Cream.'
This cream has made the name and complexion
of Miss McMahon famous the world over. The
only member who was unable to attend this
happy reunion was Miss Eleanor Bello, who re-
cently entered a convent.
"After a few days' stay in the city this famous
class will go aboard the yacht Margarite, en route
for the summer home of Miss Wynne, at Pearl
Islands, Pacific Ocean. Here they will take part
in a pleasant house party."


WHY SMITH LEFT HOME.


The Class of 1921 successfully presented "Why
Smith Left Home," an interesting comedy by
George H. Broadhurst. The cast of characters
was as follows:

JOHn SMITH ....... Who loves his wife and lives in New York
GENERAL BILLETDOLtX .......... .His wife's second husband
COUNT vow GUGGENHEIM ......... Who made them twisted
MAJOR DtNCOMBE. ........... With memories of last night
RoaBR WALTON ..................Mrs. Smith's brother
MKs. SMIrHH .' h,, I. es hrr husband, no matter where he lives
M iss SMITH .... ...... ........A lady in waiting
MRS. BILLE.ITDOV ................ Mrs. Smith's aunt
Rose WALTON .... ........ Robert's bride of a day
JULIA .. ........ Touchingly clever
E1, .... ... .... A maid
L.AvI'OA DA.v ......... ....... \\ h. I .1 I I and knows it

ACT I.

Mr. and \lr,. Smith, ne.wl. % eds, are prevented
from t.ikin, their honeymoon on account of busi-
ness affairs and later are surprised by visits from


relatives. Miss Smith, the first to come, is fol-
lowed by Aunt Mary and the General. The latter
immediately becomes a slave to Julia's charms.
Smith comes to an agreement with Lavinia, the
new Irish cook, to do her best "bad cooking"
in the hope of shortening Aunt Mary's visit.
Much to Mrs. Smith's dismay, Bob, her brother,
who has just been married to Rose, appears, an-
nouncing that they have come to spend their
honeymoon. The curtain falls just as Mrs.
Smith witnesses Mr. Smith kissing Julia. Later he
explains that he mistook her for his wife, because
she had on one of his wife's discarded dresses.

ACT II. (Double scene.)

Smith explains his actions and he and his wife are
reconciled. Aunt Mary catches the General in a
tete-a-tete with Julia. He explains that,like Smith,
he mistook her for his wife on account of the
dress. There is a little scene in which Count Von








THE ZONIAN.


Guggenheim arrives, asking for the hand of Miss
Smith. He claims to have seen her in the street
and to have fallen in love with her at first sight.
The rest of the scene is a farce in which some of the
characters are trying to get something to eat.
This condition of .irlr-, causes \I,- Smith and
Aunt Mary, who are in the parlor, to overhear the
conversation between the General and Mr.
Smith in which the latter describes the costume
which Julia is to wear that evening at a masquer-
ade. The servants are giving this party in Smith's
home in the absence of Mrs. Smith and Aunt
Mary who are supposed to go visiting but in
reality have decided to attend the party, Aunt
Mary to dress like Julia.

AcT III.
In this act the Grman Count gets himitlf into
dire trouble bv insisting on proposing to Mrs.
Smith whom he had thought to be Miss Smith.
When he finds out his mistake, he willingly gives
Miss Smith up to the Major, her suitor for years.
There follow various comical situations caused by
the costumes, such as the General kissing his wife
for Julia and Mrs. Smith as a French maid trying
to flirt with him, but getting no response. In the
midst of the merriment of the servants' party, the
various disguises are discovered and the play
ends by Smith announcing that this time his
honeymoon will be a reality and ordering his and
his wife's baggage to the Waldorf.


Much credit is due to Harry Bissell and Cath-
erine Parmeter as Mr. and Mrs. Smith for their
splendid acting. Their parts, which are Ii-F, lir,
were interpreted with much grace and ease.
George Danskin successfully acted the part of
General Billetdoux who is as tame as a lamb in his
wife's presence and very frivolous otherwise.
Ruth Boyd made a good Aunt Mary. There was
no doubt in the mind of the audience that she
ruled the General with an iron hand. George
C.i ....l, as the Count, was splendid. His Ger-
man accent and hopelessly twisted English were
very much enjoved. The Major, Miss Smith's
true suitor, was cleverly played by William Allen.
Louis O'Brien and Margaret Halligan, as Bob and
Rose, made a very charming young c: uple. M.irie
IMcMahon impersonated to perfection Miss
Smith, a coy and sentimental old maid. Florien-t
Matter, as Julia, could nmit help but attract the
General's attention. Cornelia van Hardeveld, in
the r6le of Elsie, made a very prim and proper
maid, showing, however, a talent for dancing in
the masquerade scene. May Duncan creditably
played Lavinia the cook, who, insisting that she
was a "cook lady" and a staunch union member,
got many a laugh from the audience.
The success of this production has been mainly
due to Miss Zahrah Preble's effort in coaching
the play. The members of the Class of 1921 wish
to express their sincere appreciation.

"We don't know where we're going but we're on
our way," thus sang the "Happy Twenty-eight"
as the old hay-filled truck bumped and thumpedc
over the road to Corozal. But they did know where
they were goingand theoccasion for their going was
the annual Senior hayride. They were Gamboa
bound and were taking what proved to be a most
memorable trip. The night, the sky, the stars,
everything, spelled romance, but-Oh, we had a
wonderful time. N'i'st-ce pas, Senior? Nuf ced!


"Gee, we haven't had a party all year," be-
wailed a moody looking Senior, "let's do some-
thing." So the happy crowd decided on a I 11.. -
een party. All were invited to attend ye olde tyme
party, to be held in the domestic science room.
Everyone masked or wore a fancy costume. Fun
waxed fast and furious, and the little gloom imps
were banished for the evening. Seniors cast away
their dignity and acted as foolish as Freshmen.
Old-fashioned games were played and Miss Frost
was judged to be the champion apple-ducker.
Hurrah for Miss Frost! During the evening
honest-to-goodness Halloween refreshments were
served, consisting of nuts, apples, raisins, oranges,
cake, and ice cream. Miss Gertrude John was
judged to be the most originally costumed as a
Star &dHerald girl. Not until the mystic hour of
12 was sounding from our "Big Ben" did the
merry party break up.

An event occurred on April 13 which should go
down in the annals of the Balboa High School
history. The basketball banquet, in honor of the
Senior team, the winners of the Girls' Interclass
League. Will we ever forget it? Although the
thirteu:nth is supposed to be an unlucky day, it
proved i tself to be just the opposite. The banquet
was held at the home of Miss Arlee Greene, a
member of the Sophomore team, and a more lovely
place could not have been selected. The tables,
decorated very originally with purple bougain-
i1'., i vine, certainly were ri .... And oh,
what a wonderful dinner-in truth, "a feast for
the Gods." The cooks are to be highly compli-
mented on the magical way in which the food dis-
appeared, make praises odious. During the eve-
ning toasts were given )by members of each team,
the four teams; being represented; Llona Rath-
bone spoke for the Freshmin; Arlee G:eene f r
the Sophonm ;'e ;, Ceceiia Twomey for the Juniors;
and Marie iMcMahon for the Seniors. Miss
McMahon also) gave a mjst fitting toast to our
coach, Miss Gaither, telling her of the appreciate m
of the :I l r -i teams f.r the splendid way in which
she had handled. them. Miss Gaither responded
in a few well-chosen words which endeared her
more than ever to the girls who already love her
so well. After dinner, d. m .i;, singing, and games
were enjoyed until a late hour. M\I-, Rathbane,
as a fancy dancer, and Miss Matter, as pianist,
did much to entertain. The party broke up with

the singing of the old favorite "Good-night,
Ladies," and all agreed the banquet certainly was a
success. We owe many thanks to Mrs. Greene
for her kindness in lending her home for the occa-
sion and to the girls who were responsible for
the "perfectly ripping time."

JUNIORS.
Another brilliant and successful affair was the
dance gi vcn by theJunior Class at the TivoliHotel.
Costume or fancy dress was the rule of the even-
ing and everyone seemed to have tried to outdo
the other in beauty and originality.
Miss Gertrude Jchn again scored a triumph
by taking first prize
with her Star&
Herald costume.
Congratulations
are in order for the
Sophomore class
for the splendid
party they ga.iv to
the students and
faculty of Balboa
High School, the
afternoon of the
declamation con-
test. It was held in
the domestic sci- A corner of the f
ence rooms. Punch
and sweet cakes were to be had in an unlimited
supply and certainly were done justice. The
school victrola furnished excellent dance music
and even the faculty indulged in tripping light
fantastic.

FRESHMEN.

Not to be outdone just because they were
Freshmen, the "Pistachios" agreed to have a
hay ride. It proved to be an affair which even
the Seniors would be proud of (hurrah!). Lunch
was eaten on Gamboa road. A regularr" picnic

work, Freshies; by the time you are Seniors you
will be quite a class.
"Christmas comes but once a year," so says a
poem, a song, or som thing, and the Balboa High
decided to celebrate it by an entertainment.
Mr. Lang kindly allowed us the half day of the
17th, and the talent was contributed from the
different classes. The stunt scoring the most
applause and winning first place was the mock-
wedding given by the Juniors. Miss Ida Brown, as
the blushing young bride, fitted the part perfectly
and looked trees charmante with her bouquet of
red roses almost as large as herself. Lawrence
Hoppe, the thinnest (?) boy in school made a
matchless mate for
- her. The wedding
S.party was also be-
yond criticism.

ond place, Florin-

singing the song "Rose of Washington Square,"
also Cornelia van Hardeveld andi Catherine
Kaye in "Oh, By Jingo." Sophomores took
third and Freshmen fourth place, with piano and
violin solos and readings, Marjory Carter win-
ning especial applause. After the entertain-
ment, all adjourned to the domestic science
rooms where cake and ice cream were in order.
Then the hard-worked victrola was once more
called to the front and dancing was the rule of the
remainder of the afternoon. A more Merry
Christmas entertainment and party has never
been held by the high school before and we hope
the su' cceling ones will be just as merry.

ATHLETE


ES


William Sargent, '22.


This year has been one of the most successful
in athletics that the Balboa High School has
recorded. It is true that we have met withsome
reverses, such as the loss of the High School
Basketball Championship of the Canal Zone, but
the interest shown and the number of participants
in the different sports have exceeded that of pre-
vious years.
Many members of the high school have become
proficient with rifles and next year a gun club
will probably be organized.

BASKETBALL.

This year, as in former years, basketball is
vimen preference over the other sports. One of
the first duties which the newly elected Athletic
Council undertakes is the formation of a schedule
and rules for the interclass basketball series and
the irL;ani:iri',n of the high school team.
In the early part of the season, due to poor
teamwork, we suffered several defeats. More
practice, however, proved Balboa High School
basketball team one of the strongest teams on the
Isthmus.
The interclass basketball was easily won by the
Seniors. The Freshmen and Juniors were second
and third, respectively. Much enthusiasm pre-
vailed :lurinL' the interclass 'Lri;c, as the teams
which win first, second, and third places, receive,


55, 25, and 15 points for the cup, which is one of
several inducements to promote athletics in the
high school.

HIGH SCHOOL CHAMPIONSHIP.
In three consecutive games, Cristobal High
School defeated Balboa High for the Canal Zone
High School basketball championship. Although
the games were rather one-sided, Balboa High
hotly contested every point, and both teams
played clean basketball, which made the games
very interesting for the rooters.

U. S. S. "CLEVELAND" (HEAVYWEIGHTS) VS. BALBOA
HIGH.

Balboa High played the U. S. S. Cleveland
heavyweight team four games of basketball.
The sailors won the first two games, but the high
school team won the next two. The final game
was the most exciting game played so far this
season. When time had been called the score was
found to be 31 to 31. Five minutes' extra time
was played. Balboa High won by a free throw.

HIGH.

The U. S. S. Cleveland lightweights were twice
defeated by the high school five. The feature of
the first game was the defensive work of Landers
and O'Brien. The second game was more exciting
as it was anybody's game up to within a minute
of the end, when Balboa scored the final basket.

U. S. S. "TACOMA" VS. BALBOA HIGH.


One of the best games that have been played
on the Balboa floor took place January 26, when
the U. S. S. Tacoma basketball team was defeated
after having apparently won the game from the
high school squad.
Balboa High started the game by scoring the
first basket. The sailors also scored and the first
quarter ended with Balboa High School 8 and
Tacoma 6. The sailors gained in the second quar-
ter and at the end of the first half the score was
12 to ii in favor of the U. S. S. Tacoma. During
the third quarter many fine shots were made,
especially by Brown of Balboa, but the high school
was still one point behind the sailors when the
third quarter ended--U. S. S. Tacoma, 20; Balboa
High, 19. The combination of Capwell, Bissell,
and Brown made a gap in the U. S. S. Tacoma's
defense through which basket after basket was
shot. The final score of the game was, Balboa
High, 28; U. S. S. Tacoma, 22.


TENNIS.

The annual high school tennis tournament found
the Juniors and Seniors contenders for first place.
The Seniors won, however, with a total of 21
points. The Juniors were second, scoring 14
points, the Sophomores third with 10 points, and
the Freshmen last with no points.
The Sophomores and Freshmen were not repre-
sented on the courts with full teams although there
are many good players in the classes.

AQUATICS.


The 1921 aquatic team has been a great credit
to Balboa High. The relay -%Iimmi,,!i: team, W.
Bro'.. n, G. \l'rtWn, W. .lli.n, and T. Knapp,
won the Isthmian Relay Championship against
all comers, ini l llini our old rival, the Cris-
tobal High School. The outlook for a -tr.,nu
swimming combination for next year looks very
poor, as three of our best swimmers, William
Allen, George Ca "ll and Theodore Knapp, will
graduate this year. Fortunately this pessimistic
view was completely swept .i".i\ as the Fresh-


M1..rtn, W. Meyers, A. Krause, R. Pearson, R.
Engelke, and F. Newhard.

HIGH SCHOOL AQUATIC MEET.

On February 12, 1921, the Freshmen and Senior
aquatic teams met at the Balboa swimming
pool to participate in the Annual Balboa High
School Aquatic Mcl.r. The Juniors and Sopho-
mores did not enter teams as very few of the
athletes in these classes are fast swimmers. The
Seniors were confident of winning, as their team

consisted of crack swimmers, although their
number was limited. The Freshman class took
advantage of their superior number of swimmers
and entered fresh swimmers in every event, which
the Seniors were unable to do; consequently the
Freshmen took second and third places in almost
every event. They also won three first places out
of the eight events, which, with the aid of the
Freshman girl swimmers, enabled them to win the
meet by the close score of 66 to 62 points.

TRACK.

The Canal Zone High Schools held their annual
track and field meet at the Balboa Stadium on
Saturday, April 2, 1921. Balboa High School won
the meet, defeating Cristobal High School by 9
points. Frank Raymond, the all-around Cristobal
athlete, was the highest point winner. He took
four first places, two second places, one third place,
and made a total of 27 points. For Balboa High
Landers was the highest scorer, making 8 points;
he was ably assisted by Bissell, Miles, Miller,
and Morton in making a winning score of 38
points.

48 THE 2


BASEBALL.

The Balboa High School baseball team was
organized rather late this year and so far this
season only four games have been played-one
ga:111 with the Quarry Heights enlisted men's
team; and three with Cristobal High School for
the Canal Zone High School Baseball Champion-
ship.
The Canal Zone High School series was won
by Cristobal after a hard fight with the Balboa
High School team. By winning the 1921 cham-
pionship in baseball, Cristobal High has finally
realized one of its great ambitions, which has been
shattered year after year in the past by a stronger
Balboa nine.
FIRST GAME.

The first game of the series was played at the
Balboa stadium February 26, 1921. Raymond
of Cristobal was in fine form, allowing but two
singles. Landers of Balboa pitched the first three
innings but retired after the third, on account of
his arm. Cristobal High managed to get only one
hit from Landers in three innings. Pena pitched
the remaining six innings for Balboa High and
was touched for two hits. Balboa was one run
ahead of Cristobal until the eighth inning, when
J. Solomon knocked a 3-base hit over Pearson's
head, with second and third bases occupied. With
this addition Cristobal took the lead from Balboa
and maintained it to the end.

SECOND GAME.

The Balboa High School baseball nine crossed
the Isthmus on March 5, 1921,to tackle the Cris-
tobal team on the Colon diamond in the second
game of the series. A hard struggle was antici-
pated as the teams had played excellent ball in
the first game and seemed to be evenly matched.
The expectations for a fighting game were not
realized, as Balboa easily defeated Cristobal by
the one-sided score of 19 to 9. Both sides made
many errors; Cristobal was credited with II and
Balboa with 8. Zimmerman pitched for Cristobal
but was removed in the fifth inning. During the
southpaw's five-inning career, Balboa High made
ii runs. Raymond filled the gap but did not
succeed in stopping the Balboa sluggers and was
knocked for eight more runs. The slugger of the
day was Capwell, who poled out two doubles and
three singles out of six trips to the plate.

and dl.dinr game of the series and by this vic-

championship in baseball for the Canal Zone
high schools.

THE Z(


Landers became too generous and permitted the
Cristobal team to chalk up five runs, consequently
he was relieved by Pena. Pena was hit for two
runs in the fourth inning but easily held the Cris-
tobal High scoreless during the rest of the game.
Up to the seventh inning Cristobal was leading by
a big margin but in the eighth inning Balboa
High made a rally which brought in four runs.
With two men down, a ninth inning rally was
also formed, which brought in another run before
the game was ended by Eberenz's pretty catch
of Engelke's foul fly after a hard run. J. Solomon
and Raymond were conspicuous with their batting;
the former knocked out four singles at four times
at bat, while the latter procured a triple which
was the only extra base hit of the game. Another
feature of the game was Miles' one-handed catch
of white's s line drive, which should have been a hit.

for the day. Capwell hit a home run into deep
center, while Engelke hit a long drive into left
field which enabled him to reach third base.
Isaac starred for the soldiers, as he played a
faultless game at third and got three singles at
four times up to the plate.

March 2, 1921. The game that followed was
exciting as the high school team greatly outcla
that of their rival. Good sportsmanship
vailed throughout the game and not a hint o

INTERCLASS TRACK MEET.


1 0 In the Balboa High School interclass athletic
1 0 meet for 1921 the Senior and Freshmen classes
o1 were again competitors for first place, recalling the
0 Intense rivalry which existed in the interclass
S aquatic meet between the Seniors and Fresh-
6 6 men. Much of the great enthusiasm which has
always been characteristic in this event was lack-
ing, due partly to the number of athletes who have
S been barred in all school activities because of
0--0
1-7 failing work; many athletes have specialized in
other branches of athletics. The Seniors this
time defeated the Freshmen and made up for their
L. defeat in the aquatic meet. Bissell and Landers
,ball were the high point winners, scoring 16 and 15
Sto points, respectively, for the Seniors. For the
ted, Juniors, Miller scored 8 points. The Freshmen

GIRLS' ATHLETICS.

Ethel P. S. Getman, '21.


Our climate being a most favorable one for
year around athletics, our high school is naturally
interested in them, both boys and girls. Girls'
athletics this year have comprised more sports
than ever before, consisting of swimming, diving,
basketball, track and field, and tennis. Basketball
seems to be the most popular, and everyone from
the Freshmen novices to the adept and proficient
Seniors flocked out for the team trials. We have
had two leagues, an Interclass and an Isthmian,
which have developed some excellent players.

INTERCLASS BASKETBALL.

Interclass girls' basketball was again easily
.;aprured by the Seniors, who for three years in
succession have won first place, the last two years
with 1,000 per cent. The fact that five of the
Senior pl.u1'rs were chosen for the high school
team certainly speaks well for the ability of the
Senior team. The other places went to the
Juniors, S.phii.m, r,, and Freshmen, in the order
named.
The Seniors, who have also Ipriogrc,,,l in uni-
forms, surprised the other classes last year with


red middies and black bloomers, our class colors.
This year, we appeared on the floor in red athletic
jerseys and black bloomers. The high school team
has adopted this uniform in the high school colors,
gold and black. Our lineup is: Marie MeMahon,
captain and f.; Florienet Matter, f.; Catherine
Parmeter, g.; Cornelia van Hardeveld, g.; Mae
Wynne, c.; Ethel Getman, c.; Marie McMahon,
'21, captain of both the Senior and high school
teams, deserves much credit for the work as
captain of three teams during her four years of
high school. With her as leader, the Sophomores
of 1919 won the league championship for the first
time.

ISTHMIAN BASKETBALL LEAGUE.

The Balboa High School girls made their first
appearance in the Isthmian Basketball League
when they played Ancon on December 4, 1920.
The team, picked by ]\li Gaither, our coach, was
made up of the following: Marie McMahon,
captain and f.; Florienet Matter, f.; Catherine
Parmeter, g.; Cornelia van Hardeveld, g.; Arlee
Greene, g.; Olena Hutchings, f.; Gertrude van









THE ZONIAN.


Hardeveld, c.; Ethel Getman, c. This proved to
be a most exciting game. The hall was crowded
with fans who were not disappointed. The game
was not decided until the very last minute, when
Florienet Matter of Balboa made a neat basket
which barely cleared the net as the whistle blew
for time. Balboa cheered Ancon and Ancon
promptly returned it, and the Balboa girls trotted
off the floor with one of the hardest game ever
played to their credit. The score was 28 to 27
in favor of Balboa.


January 29 we played Gatun again and easily
beat them by a score of 18 to 8. This game tied
Gatun and Balboa for first place, causing another
game to be played in order to decide the winners
of the championship. We won another easy
victory from the Cristobal team a week later by
a score of 40 to i This one completed our sched-
ule with them. We think that Cristobal has done
well during the short time they have been organized.
The championship game of the Isthmus,
between Balhoa"and Gatun, was played on the

We played our second game at Gatun, Decem-
ber II, with the fast Gatun six. Things went
evenly all the way through until Gatun scored a
basket. Though we tried hard, we could not get
another basket to square things up. The final
score showed the Gatun team victorious by two
points--I to 9.
The game with Cristobal on December 18 was
a walk-away for Balboa, the score being 44 to 8.
While Cristobal played hard, Balboa was too fast
for them.
Balboa and Pedro Miguel are not very well
matched as the latter team is new at basketball,
but they took their defeat like good sports.
Pedro Miguel was unable to score while Balboa
made 41.


gym ... r at the Cristobal Army and Navy "Y."
Both teams were at a disadvantage here, as neither
had ever played on this floor before. The members
of the two teams compared very favorably in
size and skill and when the whistle blew 12 nervous
girls found their positions, determined to fight to
the last second.
The first half was practically all played by the
Gatun forwards and Balboa guards. Shot after
shot was tried but all fell short of their mark.
When the Balboa team finally did get the ball to
its forwards M.ii. McMahon scored the first
goal of the game. \\ I.-ii time was called the score
stood 2 to o. Gatun refused to let it remain so
and in the third quarter they scored a goal, making
it two all. In the last quarter, every player was

on her mettle. No one was left unguarded for a
second and real teamwork showed why Balboa and
and Gatun stood at the top of the league. Florie-
net Matter, of Balboa, made a goal; then Lulu
Henter scored for Gatun. The side lines were in
an uproar and Balboa's 3 rooters were given
Gatun's 20 a run for their money. The whistle
blew and the referee announced that Gatun had
made a foul. As Marie McMahlin stepped into
the ring to make a free shot the room was quiet
but a second afterwards it was filled with shouts
and groans-for she had made it! In vain did
Gatun try to retaliate; but Balboa stood firm
and every girl played as she never played before.
When the last whistle sounded Balboa had won
by one point the Isthmian championship.

AQUATICS.
Swimming, our year around amusement, was
well represented this year and a new champion
surprised us all. Eleanor Garrard, of the Fresh-
man class, starred in the interclass aquatic meet.
All past girls' records were broken for the dashes
and although Miss Garrard has only been swim-
ming about a year, she promises to develop into a
real champion if her rapid advancement continues.
Our former champion of the Isthmus and high
school, Marie Mc.lhiah.n, of the class of'21, has
given up \swimming, appearing for the last time
in the aquatic meet. Fancy diving is a new art
in which [lhrlinct Matter, also of the class of'21,
has made a name for herself by doing perfect
swans from the 34-foot tower. The following is a
result of the events of the interclass aquatic
meet held at the Balboa swimming pool.

CRISTOBAL HIGH SCHOOL US. BALBOA HIGH SCHOOL
TRACK MEET.

We were surprised to see so many of the
Cristobal High School girls come over for the
track meet this year, as heretofore the Balboa
girls have never been called upon to defend our
title to the championship. Saturday, April 2,
we won another victory over Cristobal by beating
them in the track meet. This makes us champs
of basketball, swimming, and track. The latter
was the hardest of all to win as Cristobal has some
excellent athletes. Edna Campbell of Cristobal
scored in almost all the dashes, while Llona Rath-
bone, '24, and Ethel Getman, '21, won the broad
and high jumps for Balboa, setting new records
for the Canal Zone in both events. The list of

OURSELVES AS OTHERS SEE Us.

THE ZONIAN-The Spanish stories were excellent; so were
the geographical pictures. Would not a Current Events
column add to your paper?-The Disi,;ff.

Very original is your idea of scenes; also that of the French
and Spanish stories.-The Student, Oklahoma.

THE ZONIAN.


THE ZONIAN.-Your magazine is very attractive with its
numerous pictures. We admire your novel way of arranging
your Society Notes. Come again.-The Review, Lowell, Mass.
THE ZONIAN from Balboa High School is an interesting
magazine. Your cover design is one of the best we have seen.-
The Nobleman.
THE ZONIAN.-We like your artistic cover, your stories are
good, your jokes have pep; but why leave so much blank
space after stories, etc.? We hope your little poem "Why We
Stay," will be an incentive to other writers.-The IVyndonian.
THE ZONIAN.-You have an excellent little paper. Accept
our congratulations.-The Bayonet.
THE ZONIAN.-Your annual is well arranged. You have
many good stories and articles and your class prophecy was
very clever indeed. You also have many beautiful photographs,
but there seems to be a shortage of drawings, II,.rr ,r. r,.
cartoons, and headings. Haven't you any artists? We would
also like to suggest that you enlarge your exchange depart-
ment.-The Tabula.
THE ZONIAN.-Your paper is an especially fine one. The
illustrations add much to its interest and attractiveness. We
were pleased to learn that your graduating class gave the
same play "Green Stockings" that our graduating class gave.-
The Argus.
THE ZONIAN.-We are glad to have THE ZONIAN among our
exchanges this year. The general excellence of its literary
content is a reason for pride in which its sister school, dearold
Cristobal, shares. No exchange among the many good ones
received, with a far larger student body, excels it. It is an
enduring monument to the accomplishment of its contributors
and a silent tribute to the devotion and zeal of its teacher of
English, Miss Myrtis M. Gallup.-The Caribbean.


As WE SEE OTHERS.
Commerce Life, Columbus, Ohio.-Your paper is very attract-
ive and your snapshot arrangements particularly clever.
"Commerce Bells" deserves special mention. Why not add
a few more stories?
The Distaff, Boston, Mass.-A good paper well supported by
the students. Wouldn't some new cuts help?
The Student, Oklahoma City, Okla.-A snappy paper. Your
cuts are good; also your poems.
High School Recorder, Saratoga Springs, N. Y.-Your
literary department is very good.
Westward Ho, Baltimore, Md.-A good magazine through-
out. Your literary department is excellent and the idea of
illustrating the stories quite original in a high school magazine.
The Student, Covington, Ky.-A splendid paper-your cuts
are fine.
The Gleeman, Bellevue, Pa.-The Gleeman is true to its title.
Your jokes are excellent.
The Herald, Westport High School, Kansas City, Mo.-
You have a very attractive magazine. Your pictures are good
and the little sketch, "Mars, A Tragedy," was very clever;
but wouldn't it improve your magazine to have a few stories
and jokes and an exchange column?
The Tabula, Chicago, 111.-A fine magazine, one of the best
exchanges we have received. We like your stories, we like
your illustrations, we like your jokes-we like your magazine.
The Caribbean, Cristobal High School, Cristobal, C. Z.-
One of our best exchanges. The Caribbean is a splendid maga-
zine. The articles of local interest are especially good and the
school notes are very well arranged. The stories and snap-

of our "sister paper," The Caribbean.

It was on a moonlight sleigh ride,
As we glided o'er the land,
That I softly called her "d iIrlinc,."
And stroked her little- raincoat.

I held her little raincoat, "Oh,
How fast the evening flies."
My soul filled with rapture
As I gazed into her-lunch basket.

I peeped into the basket
And I longed for one sweet taste.
There sat my little sweetheart,
With my arm around her- umbrella.

I still held her umbrella
What a lovely little miss.
She smiled in pleased confusion
When I boldly stole a sandwich.

The culprit's name was Look Hoo
A Chinaman 'twas clear,
The lawyer addressed the Court;
"Your honor, Look Hoo's here."
The judge replied with brevity,
"Eliminate the levity."


THE NEW DANGER.

"Sister," said the deacon severely, "you should
avoid even the appearance of evil."
"Why, deacon, what do you mean?" asked
the sister.
"I observed that on your sideboard you have
several cut-glass decanters, and that each of them
is half filld with what appears to be ardent
spirits."
"Well, now, deacon, it isn't anything of the
kind. The bottles looked so pretty on the side-
board that I filled them half way with some floor
stain and furniture polish, just for the sake of
appearance.
"That's why I'm cautioning you, sister,"
replied the deacon. "Feeling a trifle faint, I
helped myself to a dose from the big bottle in the
middle."

It was midnight on the ocean,
Not a street car was in sight.
The sun was shining brightly,
For it rained all day that night.
'Twas midnight and the rising sun
Was setting in the west,
The little fishes in the trees
Were cuddled in their nests.

While the organ peeled potatoes,
Lard was rendered by the quire,
While the sexton wrung the dishrag,
Some one set the church on fire.
"Oh, what smoke!" the sexton shouted
As he watered the place dry.
Now the place resembles Wall Street,
For the ruins are piled up high.

ODE TO HGCI.

O, calomel! O, calomel!

As George was going out one night,
His mother questioned, "Whither?"
And George, not wishing to deceive,
With blushes answered "With'er."

"Oh, mother, may I go out to swim?"
"Oh, yes, my darling daughter,
But hang some clothes on each pretty limb,
For the police insist you oughter."

How heartily I hate her;
Some night she'll come and mew 'til late,
And then I'll mew-ti-later.

While I flunk mine, I must confess;
But would I change my. marks for his?
Hell, yes!

SAD BUT S\\H -. .

Elois Pearson. '21.

First it was the beautiful violet blue eyes that
attracted the attention of the man; eyes shaded
by bng, thick, black lashes and well-shaped,
black brows. Then her gollcn brown hair that
fell in soft waves around a pretty forehead. A
very pretty chin; a perfect cupid's bow mouth;


a little delicate nose; beautiful, soft, round, blush-
ing cheeks and pretty little pink ears claimed his
attention. Then he noticed her perfect dress;
her small white hands and soft round arms; her
dainty ankles and her fairy feet. With a thought
of his 200-pound wife he turned away and said
with a sigh, "Oh, what a pity that all women
aren't as perfect as that dress form!"



AN INCID1-NT IN THE SPANISH CLASS.

Cornelia van Harde:e!d, '21.

It was one of those hot, sultry days when you
just pray for the least excuse to giggle or make any
kind of a disturbance. Spanish III class was
at the board conjugating irregular Spanish verbs.
George was writing by the window, and, gazing
down the long sun-baked, deserted, cement walk,
he saw a Jamaican banana vender, with her tray
balanced on her head.
M la rjric was in the middle of a recitation when
the whole class looked up in astonishment and
burst out laughing. There in the door stood the
negress, barefooted, with her ragged skirt tucked
well up out of her way, her tray of fruit on her
head, and an expectant grin on her shiny black
face.
Miss Frost looked quite stern, but had hard
work to keep from joining in the merriment.
"\\hat do you want?" she said.
"De young gentleman, him call me, mom,"
said the n"gre., courtesying and pointing to
George who was perusing his Spanish grammar
very diligently.
"I'm sure he doesn't want you now; this is a
school."
"Oh, mom, I begs your pardon, mom, I didn't
mean for to break into de class."
At this, the negress left and we heard her grum-
bling as she went down the stairs: But, chuck,
mon, him try to play poppy jokes on dis old
nigger, dem is always humbugging me. My f i.der,
King George -
Miss Frost turned to George, and said:
"G(Corg., you may report to me at 3 o'clock
and conjugate the verb 'to buy'."

Method of Reproduction


4iTO


THE Tone Am-
plifier has s.,l ed
an old problem in
acoustics. Itis oval-
shaped and molded
of rare hollywood.
Like the sound-
ing board of a fine
piano, it is built
entirely of wood.
It is absolutely free
from metal.
By the Bruns-
wick method of pro-
jecting sound, tone
waves are unre-
stricted and are
allowed to unfold
into full, rich, mel-
low, and above all,
natural tones.
Brunswick Records will be welcomed as
the highest and most perfect expression
now available of the science and art of tone
recording.


Brunswick has a history of 75 years
of success. Its destiny is guided
by some of the ablest executives in
American industry. Its financial
resources are unlimited.

Catalogues and prices, including
special information for dealers,
will be sent on request.


A CHANGE has
come about in
the music world.
People no longer
are satisfied with
j u s t "a" phono-
graph-they know
how to make com-
parisons and to
judge.
T he Brunswick
Phonograph will be
known to music
lovers the world
over for its marvel-
ous method of re-
production.
The ( Ir.,na is a
scientific, patented
Brunswick creation.
It pla.- all records
intinitclr better. It
involves a genuine
fundamental principle of reproduction.
There is no metallic sound, or quiver, no
machine sound to disturb the sensitive ear.
It is unli k any other phonograph or talking
machine. It is a mechanical achievement.
