Sometimes We Seniors feel a solemn urge
To pause and sing a gentle, wistful dirge
About the Davis and McKibben.
About those gone and eke, eke, on the living!
It seems but yesterday the year began
When first We Seniors saw the great McMahon
Though then commencement seemed some umpSteen years
Away, we felt relieved and dried our tears,
Resolved to Coil inge-nuity to light
The way to graduation day, good-night!
We hired a Miller milling daily
To sing a song both glad and somewhat Whaley.
We fought and Claude each other then to see
The Hodges-podges play upon the Lee!
Yea, then the road seemed long and hard as Flint
And there's nO'Conn or guff we thought in it-
When Meyer asked us if we knew, one day
Who stole the "L" from LEMMONS, yea or nay!
Each day that passed we felt was worse than lost
If on the ground we saw no signs of Frost!

.larion Sealey '29
Let us all look back over those four years in Balboa Hi. We didn't seem so happy
at the time but who wouldn't like to start again? Let us turn the hour-glass upside
down and begin over.
* October, 1925. Everyone troops in to fix up his schedule, somewhat happy that
the long vacation is over and curious to see the new teachers. The meek scared little
Freshmen wander helplessly around, quailing before the haughty eyes of the upper
classmen. What wouldn't they give to have that superior air! The Freshman boys
dazedly rub their hands over the sharp prickly stubble of their newly shaved heads,
wondering how long the locks will take to grow. "Well, anyway," they console them-
selves. "I won't have to comb my hair for awhile."
The next day all classes open. Mr. Flint breaks the record that the rest of the
teachers have made by giving eight whole pages of queer-looking symbols and long-
sounding words to the humble "scobies" who haven't yet acquired sense enough to
object. The prevailing opinion is that Mr. Flint must be trying'to teach them Greek
or Egyptian by the looks of that book.
The next week comes and Thursday is the day set for the class meetings. Miss
Laws is the girls' adviser and Mr. Flint the boys'. After an exciting election the officers
are chosen.
Boy( GirL,
President, William Rader President, Marjorie Quinn
Vice-President, Earl Orr Vice-President, Shirley Persons
Secretary, James Quinn Secretary, Amelia Hutchings
Treasurer, Otto Helmerichs Treasurer, Anita Rankin
The mid-year exams soon hang like the proverbial sword over everyone's head.
Long sighs of reliefs are heard after the danger zone is past. The "scobies" are now
Freshmen in the dignified sense of the word and hard knocks aren't felt quite so
keenly now. Our poor class is not destined to excel in athletics. A couple of class
parties are given; one a picnic to Chiquita pool.
School is nearing the end and the Zonians are doled out. The Seniors have been
generous in bequeathing us many things which in their opinion we lack. The most
appreciated gift is that of occupying seats in the spacious assembly.
October, 1926. The long vacation closes as teachers and students troop back to
school to put their noses to the grindstone once more. Our intellectual Sophomores
eye the new set of "scobies" with disdain and wreak their vengeance with glee. Two
new teachers have arrived, Miss Melgaard and Miss Vette. Aha! Now we shall
have some fun. Class meetings are held. President, Vance Hayes; Vice-President,


Marjorie Quinn; Secretary, Amelia Hutchings; Treasurer, James Quinn. Some new
Sophomores have joined our ranks; among them are Clyde and Kathryn Bowman
and Lars Ekwurzel. Miss Whaley is our class adviser. The drudge begins again
punctuated here and there by tricks played in the assembly and class parties or dan-
ces. Our athletic abilities, though we come third in the track meet, don't seem to
be numerous. However our class spirit is growing and we hope for better in our
Junior year.
In April we put over a "Tacky Party." What "old-clothes" man would not be
filled with envy on taking a peek at this villainous crowd! The prizes are just as
comical as the clothes.
We wade through final exams again and most of us are transformed into hard-
working Juniors. School finally ends leaving us to make up for time lost burning the
midnight oil.
Aha! 1927. The "scobies" are duly hazed and the tonsorial abilities of the
upper-class men are fully displayed. Yonder goes a freshie with only a fringe of hair
surrounding his upper story (to quote Professor Flint); in the same direction goes one
with a cross of hair in the same locality. Some of the "freshies" escape but not for long.
Bliss Shrapnel and a few others who have acquired a pompadour are selected and
their luxuriant locks depart with the exception of one long tuft on the top. which is
moistened or mixed with grease until it stands up straight. A piece of colored
ribbon is found and artistically tied to the upright lock. The "scrubs" are put into a
wagon or anything on wheels and are hauled up and down the Prado amidst jeers and
laughter. One diminutive "scrub" has nothing but a spit curl in front of his noble
brow reminding one of the well known poem, "There was a little girl,-and she
had a little curl etc."
But now we make the sparks fly from the grindstone. Class meeting is held
and Billy Rader achieves the distinction of becoming President of the illustrious
Junior class. Otto Helmerichs secures the Vice President Office; Amelia Hutchings
the Secretary; James Quinn, the Treasurer. Miss Melgaard is the happy choice as
adviser. Who is the new student in English? Whom did you say? Oh Neal Hughes!
My but he looks timid and bashful. Ah! and the girl over in the corner. Patience
Mattatall? I wonder if she lives up to her name? She must if she continues to let
her hair grow. Who is that Junior in Mr. Flint's geometry class who is so out of
style in wearing short pants? Is that his name? Allan Wilhite? Thanks, Ah!
There go three other new Juniors, Anna Ruth Van Brocklin, Dot Dixon and Peggy
Wheeler. They look like worth while additions to our class.
How do you like our Household Arts teacher, Miss Peterson? I have heard
very favourable reports of her And that Mr. Collinge! What taking ways! How
in the world does he remember which vanity case is which? He and Mr. Northrup
are as inseparable as the Siamese twins.
Our first and greatest problem is how to raise money to feed those ravenous
Seniors at the Banquet. The Junior Luncheon has raised part of the money but a
cake sale will have to be resorted to, to drag in the rest.
The Junior-Senior Taboga Trip was quite excellent although it was hard to tell
who were the chaperons. Instead of giving a class play, a dance and card


party is staged at the Tivoli Hotel. At last the Junior-Senior Banquet arrives.
The names on the menu must have been printed in Greek or Chinese for all we can
do is wait and see what the queer named dishes really are. Usually it is Chicken a la
King or fish with a high sounding name. There is no doubt but that every
one has thoroughly eni .\ -d the affair. Mr. McCommons sincerely expresses his
regrets on leaving such a nice school and all the lovely students. Ahem!!

Otto Helmerichs evidently decides that nothing but the truth is the best course
to pursue so in his speech he politely tells our guests, the vain Seniors, that we are
only feeding them because we have to, not because we want to. We all wonder
how he has the nerve to say it.

Class Night is a glorious affair, the Seniors executing a grand march with their
mascot, a l.al:.y alligator, leading. Class songs are sung and the dancing begins after
the pr.raim. Now comes Commencement Night. What Junior doesn't feel a tiny
bit sad as he watches the Seniors walk down the aisle to get their diplomas, knowing
that next year he, too, will be leaving his school days behind him? School closes; one
of our best beloved teachers, Mr. Northrup, is leaving us. We shall miss him.

October 1928! We are now dignified Seniors and are taking every advantage of
that fact. What new faces appear on the faculty this time? Ah! Mr. Lee, Mr.
Hodges, .\li Miller, Miss McKibben, Miss Davis, Mr. O'Connor and Mr. Meyer.
Goodness! We must have drained the U. S. of teachers. But where is our principal?
Did he get lost on the way? No one knows. Mr. Hodges takes the principal's job.
We now import or rather steal Miss Emmons from Cristobal. My! What a row the
Gold-Siders raise. Queer how some of these teachers resemble their predecessors.
Miss Emmons is quite as queer and full of good spirits as Miss Vette was, even more
so. Mr. Lee seems quite adept in spotting skullduggery. He certainly resembles
Mr. Northrup in this respect. Queer isn't it, how wise and knowing they are? Would
I be severely reprimanded if I quoted that old saying "Knowledge is gained by ex-
perience"? Enough for the faculty.

October 11th, all Senior boys are requested to wear short pants in honor of
Wilhite Day. \Wlhite refuses to don long pants and swears that he will wear
short pants e"en when Lradi.i:ting Woe be to him if he so much as appears on the
stage in those Scotchman trousers. The new class officers are Otto Helmerichs,
President; Billy Rader, Vice-President; Amelia Hutchings, Secretary; and Earl Orr.
Treasurer. Mr. Lee takes Mr. Hodges' place as class adviser and fills his office to
perfection. Earl Orr begins fishing for last year's dues. He deserves a medal if he
succeeds in extracting them. The Zonian Staff is elected, Lars Ekwurzel chosen
as editor-in-chief. Announcement and ring orders are sent off in due time. Class
colors, motto, flower and mascot are chosen. The Seniors give a Taboga party
and invite the Juniors and the Juniors give one and invite the Seniors. Both affairs
are very successful. The Class of 1929's lucky star makes its appearance this
mem rahlk year. So far we have won track, swimming, basket-ball and ad infinitum.
It' about time, to be sure.


Miss Miller is frantic. How can she keep order with such a class? Miss Emmons
is increasing her vocal power and range by practicing every day in talking against
its roar--a veritable Niagara of clacking let loose at our teachers' heads. Did I not
mention that retiring, humble newcomer of the year before, Neal Hughes? Something
must have happened during vacation; he is now the ringleader of the side shows-
cracking jokes and providing amusement for the class at any time.

Only a few school days are left before most of us pass out of Balboa High School's
portals forever. There are still the Junior-Senior Banquet, Class Night, Baccalaur-
eate, Alumni Banquet and Graduation before us.

Let us stand and sing "Auld Lang Syne." There! Thanks! S' Long, youse

Complimentarty and otherwise
Janice Conard '29
Agnes Mack '29
If prophesy we must
In Fate we place our trust;
Originality's our aim
The Editor gets all the blame.
Now Jesie Banan, to begin this lay, as a scholar, we think, the world will sway.
And Kitty Bowman, who loves to talk, tells bedtime tales for station "WALK"; while
Carrie Brown, by special request, will be a bacteriologist. But Minnie Brown, be
there a law of chance, will successfully write a great romance; and then Paul Bryan,
the studious type, writes history while it's ripe. Our Steve Caples, by good grace, as
a tattoo artist will find his place. And Betty Clement, 'tis said by some, a haughty
duchess will become. The Conard called Janice in the halls of fame as a criminal
lawyer will write her name; while Beatrice Craft, for the rest of her life, will surely be
an admiral's wife. Why Georgie Daniels! The wicked thing! He'll become the head
of a bootleg ring. Lyle DeGrummond, the electrician erratic, shall install fine radios
in your attic. Now Zonabel Demuth shall be a teacher near a southern sea; but Dot
Dixon, we'll have you know, shall be a headliner in a Broadway show. While Lars
Ekwurzel (a dirty deal!) is a walking ad for Chesterfield; and Zona French, the
talkative creature, in the halls of Congress will be a feature. What! Julie Garrett!
Was this her aim-to set all masculine hearts aflame? George Halloran, oh, such a
talker, will make a living as floorwalker, and William Harris, that big tall guy, will
be a civil service spy. Otto Helmerichs, our class president, in the White House is a
resident. Ramon Hermida we can feature giving dictation as a teacher. Now
Beverly Hodges, of talents varied, will be settled down and married. Ruth Holzapfel
soon will grace a coveted orchestra place. And Neal Hughes we won't begrudge the
job of a beauty contest judge. Amelia Hutchings in any plane will success and hap-
piness gain. Ruth Hutchison, ('tis quite contrary), will find fruition as a secretary.
Donald Jacques, to be franker, will become an eminent banker. While Charlotte
Jensen we shall grant the place of Mabel Walker Willebrandt. But John Jett, we
clearly see, a butter 'an egg man soon shall be. Eleanor Johannes ('tis fixed) makes her
bow as an aviatrix. Now Chester Lindgren shall arise in an army blimp to scale the
skies. Then Martha Luther-who shall say-may be in talkies some sweet day. While
Mary Luther, not exempt, as a governess makes an attempt. But Pat iMattatall, in
future time, a snake charmer will stand in line. The McGuigans. Kathleen and
Rose, as dancers find their pose. Joe AYcKim, a talented miss, now is training
scaleless fish. Alice .h illr, our school canary, on Victor records sings lyrics airy.
Phoebe O'Donnell, by a turn of chance, will, we think, go in for the solo dance. And


Eunice Olive, a maiden fair. shall soon become a painter rare. Earl Orr, that famous
English bard, we see a member of Scotland Yard. Now Mildred Philip.. without
distress is a very good writer we must confess. And Johnnie Powell, as he's begun, a
string of busses soon shall run. larri Preston, we shall make, a deep sea diver in Gatun
Lake. Jimmie Quinn, because of his diction, we shall see a writer of fiction. Marjorie
Quinn, 'tis clearly seen, shall give her time to the silver screen. Billy Rader, we are
told, will ballyhoo for circus gold. Ben Reese, our prize reader of verse, soon, as an
actor, will rehearse. Bill Romlq a teacher of Spanish will be, in some big University.
And Mark Schapiro, we know at least, will make his debut as the best of modistes.
Now Alarion Sealey, a quiet maid, she shall be caught in a night club raid. While
Anna Ruth, that popular one, will have her married life begun. Jose, a caballero gay.
will ever go his carefree way. And Rubio Walfion, its' been seen, shall, of the
underworld be queen, while Amos Wainer, by vocal powers, now in the ministry
does flower. But Edna MJae, along with Byrd, from the artic circle now is heard.
Peaq Wl'heeler has dramatic will; we hope she lands in vaudeville. Alan ril/hlie,
(I'll be darned!) by the arts of forestry is charmed. IlarYon Willis, goodness knows,
must submit to a teacher's woes. Eloise Wilson comes out on top as manager of a
beauty shoppe. The able Wood boys, Joe and Bill, professorships quite nobly fill.
iMuriel Woodhull, true to form, offers advice to our love lorn.

Alumni are becoming a serious problem to editors of the Zonian, for nlturallv
every year there are more and more. Finally it was decided that the graduates of the
classes of 1926, 1927, and 1928 would prove of most interest to the present members of
Balboa High School. To these favored few, therefore, we sent the following card
The 1929 Zonian would like to hear from you.

The 1929 Zonian
Balboa High School
Balboa, C.Z.
Some obligingly answered; more did not. They're so very busy, you know.
Truly the efforts of their former English teachers were not in vain. Many of the
letters were jewels of style; some alumni expressed their fond memories of Balboa
High in verse; several of the letters were model business letters (score one for the typ-
ing teachers). But after these communications were gratefully received the editor
announced that the briefer the Alumni section was, the better. Consequently, much
to our regret, we are unable to print them or even extracts from them. Generaliza-
tion of the letters reveals the following facts:
Many of the former students of Balboa High School are in college throughout
the States doing excellent work.
Several have attained fame.
Many are earnestly working in Panama and the Canal Zone.
Some are happily married.
In a word, our alumni are average Alumni, who unanimously wish the class of
1929 and the classes thereafter the best of luck.
These are the most recent addition to the ranks of the Alumni.

.ia.ryon IFillir '29
Pondering and smokinL he contemplated the verdant pattern of the all pervading
tropic vegetation as viewed from his lofty perch on the inn veranda. Languidly his
eyes followed the thin silver serpent of the trail which coiled down the emerald pro-
fusion of the mountainside. In the west the sky glowed with a thousand different
riotous colors like some gigantic easel hastily abandoned by the artist, who, in part-
ing, had thrown over his work the sheer, transparent veil of dusk. The air was filled
with the odor of damp verdure, for it was rainy season and even the pungent odors
of nature were tinged with a mu'lt.y, decayed smell. Nothing broke the heavy silence
except the ceaseless drip, drip, from the leaves or now and then the weird call of some
jungle bird that pierced the quiet like a shrill cry of pain. Occasionally from the
native quarters he caught the sound of laughter, a half wild gurgle of savage delight.
Though the evening was oppressively warm, he shivered and drew his coat more
closely about him, instinctively glancing to a jagged peak high above the hotel,
whose rocky promontory was destitute of tree or bush. Its ruggLtd bareness, bathed
in the crimson glow of the setting sun, was an ugly wound in the mountainside which
smirched the freshness of its surroundings with bloody gore. Perched in the center
of this hideous waste, like a huge vulture, a decrepit thing scarcely worthy to be called
a house glared down on the town through the leering blood-shot eyes of its scarlet-
suffused windows.
It seemed as though the sinister glance was particularly directed toward the
man who sat petrified on the porch of the inn, gazing in horrified fascination at the
loathsome apparition above him. A moment only the impression lasted before the
jagged outlines merged into the merciful oblivion of early dusk. But the stranger
on the porch did not relax his taut posture. In his eyes there was the horror of a
man who has listened to a death sentence pronounced-on himself.
Night came, (hanging the lacy greenery to ebony obscurity. within n the inn
natives bustled around performing the customary nightly preparations with the
utmost rapidity so they might hurry off to some fantastic gathering in the village.
Lights were kindled and etin;uiihed, doors opened and closed. The noise in the
house ceased and the weird chanting of frenzied natives in the village grew shriller
and still more shrill, rising to fever pitch. The darkness seemed to grow thicker,
minutelyv obscuring everything save a dim path cast on the floor by a lamp far inside
the inn. And still the man sat gazing steadily into the impenetrable jungle while
the steady pulse of the tom-toms throbbed through the black silence.
He must have been sitting there for hours before he became aware that he was
not alone. Someone was leaning against the railing of the porch. In the dim light
cast by the lamp in the inn, he could vaguely discern that the figure was old and
stooped and leaned heavily against his support as though in inestimable fatigue.
Must be some native emboldened by curiosity. He stirred uneasily. There was no
one else except himself stopping at the inn, to his knowledge, unless someone had
arrived since dinner while he was on thc porch and that was practically impossible
as the position where he sat commanded a view of the entire trail leading up from the


Even while he contemplated the wisdom of addressing his impromptu companion,
he was startled to hear his name spoken.
"Sefor Meredith-I trust I do not intrude?"
The enunciation was self-consciously perfect, as that of a person who has spoken
another language in childhood and later acquired English with pain and study. The
cadences ot the voice, deep and measured, were unmistakably those of a person of
great age.
Though the American replied courteously that the other's company was no in-
trusion but rather a pleasure, he had great difficulty in refraining from demanding
of the other who he was and how he happened to know that name so well. According
to the inn-keeper there was no one who spoke English within miles of that vicinity.
He was at the same time interested and perturbed that his secluded retreat should
be shared by a man who not only knew English but was apparently well educated and
cultured. If this man stayed on at the place, they would necessarily be thrown to-
gether and he had no taste for the strained companionship of a stranger. He had
chosen this location so that he might escape association and be utterly alone to
recover from the nervous tension which his daily contact with hundreds of people
met in his important position in the far away metropolis of New York demanded
of him.
"Seior seems much impressed with the scenery. I take it this is his first visit
to 'El Pueblo de la Casa'?"
"Yes, I have never been here before-but it is strange. I feel as though I had
known it always." He hesitated a second, then -"You are familiar with this country?"

That ought to make him explain his presence. Why didn't the man come out
of the darkness so he could see him? It disturbed him to be conversing with a vague
shadow. To his taut nerves the situation seemed ghastly and almost supernatural.
enhanced by the intangible and vibrant tones of the man's voice. However any
expectation he might have had of learning his identity was shattered by his answer.
It came haltingly, reluctantly, definitely forbidding further inquisitiveness.
"Yes, I am familiar with this country-very familiar."
The cadences of his voice were retrospective. Meredith shifted uneasily and
turned the conversation to the house which had impressed him so at sunset.

"Then you can tell me of the old ruin on the crag directly above here? There
is something about it which fascinates me. I have been able to think of little else
since I arrived here this afternoon. If I am not mistaken, there is an old legend con-
nected with it, is there not? Perhaps you can tell me what it is?"
The man against the bannister turned slowly. In the darkness his features were
not visible. Meredith felt instinctively rather than saw the burning gaze directed
upon himself.

"Yes-I can tell you the story of 'La Casa de Sangre,' 'The House of Blood.'
as it is called."


There was a faint extenuation on the "I". It might mean anything-and noth-
ing. Meredith sat rigid, listening.
"In the old days it was owned by Don Carlos de Mendoza, who made his vast
fortune in the ruby mines of Natia. There are countless stories of his fabulous eaI;llh,
and the magnificence of his marvelous home was known throughout Ventura. He
was a handsome young man, the descendant of one of the proudest lines of old Span-
ish nobility. And from them he inherited his impetuosity and ardent, quick-tempered
"He had two passions, his rubies and Dolores Ramon, the beautiful girl whom he
was engaged to marry. Nothing was too much for her to ask of him. He showered
her with gifts, and chief among them was the gown which he presented her as bridal
array. It was said to be covered with gorgeous rubies sewn into the fabric, and
crowds came from far and near to gaze upon its carmine splendor.

"As the day of the wedding drew near, there was great rejoicing in the "pueblo",
for the people loved and admired Don Carlos for his generosity as much as they feared
to displease him. But there was one who did not share in the rejoicing. That one
was Dolores. She despised Mendoza for his arrogance and loathed him because of
his pagan worship of the crimson stone. But Mendoza was all-powerful in
the country and her father both feared to refuse him and desired the rich "dot"
he would gain by the marriage.
"So, as the feasting and the festival heralded the approach of her wedding day,
Dolores frantically racked her brain for a plan of escape. She had no money of her
own and if she had it would have been impossible for her to leave without being re-
cognized and dragged back. The forests were impenetrable. It was unthinkable
that a girl brave their dense undergrowth alone.

"The day set for the ceremony arrived and found her still helplessly praying for
some means of escape. The bridal attendants came and gowned her in the heavy
beauty of the wedding robe. Above the sparkling splendor of its rich folds, her face
was dead white as lily petals. They piled her thick black hair high upon her head
and caught it with a ruby studded comb. Around her throat they fastened a necklace
of the priceless gems. Her hands dripped with red fires which flashed from rings and
bracelets. She felt as though she was being slowly suffocated, stifled by these em-
blems of involuntary servitude. With the bridal toilet complete they left her for a
tew brief minutes before the procession was to start for the church.
"Alone she gazed helplessly around the room, dazed by the proximity of the wed-
ding. And then her eyes lit on something on the table, something that shimmered
and gleamed in the sun's rays. It was a long, slender, intricately carved paper knife,
fashioned in the form of a diminutive dagger, one of the many gifts Mendoza had pre-
sented to her. It was the glitter of the rubies with which the handle was set that had
attracted her attention.

"When they came to escort her to the cathedral they found a crumpled carmine
heap. Around her there slowly formed a growing pool which was a deeper, brighter
red than the crimson profusion of the rubies.


"Some say Mendoza went mad from the shock. He became possessed with a
passion for vengeance. The house was abandoned and with his departure the village
also was deserted and no one knows where he lives. But there are those who believe
he still haunts the ruins of his past glory and has his treasure concealed some place
in a crevice of the rocks. Once every year he appears in the town and leaves in
his wake a horrible trail of wanton murder. Beside every victim he leaves a blood
red ruby, the symbol of his vengeance. That is all, Senior."
It was well toward dawn when the old man concluded. Meridith rose and stretch-
ed his cramped muscles. He had not moved once during the recitation. Funny-
how he had let a fantastic recital like that get under his skin! The old fellow was more
than likely demented-queer! He thanked the man for his efforts and bade him
good-night. He had a long journey that day and was tired, without sitting up all
night listening to some old half-wit relate a ridiculous atrocity. Just before he dozed
off to sleep, he vaguely wondered if the ring he had noticed on the old man's hand
when he said good-night was-a ruby?
The next morning the cleaning woman knocked timidly at Meredith's door and,
receiving no answer, opened the door and entered the room. She was fully inside
before she noticed the thing that lay crumpled across the bed. The white sheets were
saturated with a dull red stain and on the breast of the body a huge red ruby blinked
its malicious eye in the morning sunlight.

I thought I had locked the House of my Heart,
And thrown the key away!
But dearest, my dear, here's all that I've found,
Alone on this rainy day!

I thought I had locked the House of my Heart,
But it stays as it always has been!
For dearest, my dear, it's to-day that I found
I had locked you securely within!

1. In sun,hine
The birds are building in our back yard-I watch them by the hour. They are
building in an old straw hat that we nailed to the wall. You see, we nailed the brim
flat and cut a hole in the top; it makes a perfect home for little brown wrens.
They're making a fearful fuss about their home-making. She is such a busy
little creature, but I fear he is inclined to neglect his whole duty. Oh, I know he
means well, but he is so very happy he just has to do something about it. You see,
he can sing and she can't, so he sits on the clothes-line and sings and sings; and she
flutters back and forth with bits of straw and twigs and string. She never stops a
minute for frivolities but just hurries and hurries, while he tells the whole world how
proud he is of her and their new home. Of course this is nice of him-but sometimes
she seems not quite pleased with the state of affairs and she flies at him scoldingly
and he flies away. But he is soon back, eagerly pouring out his whole little heart
in song.
Sometimes it seems as if a sense of obligation moves him and he flies to the ground
to get a twig, too. He comes back and sits on the clothes-line with it, waiting until
she finishes putting her twig into place; for there's really not room for two to work
at once. And dear me, just think-when the children get grown! And he is so very
inefficient, too, for if he doesn't drop his twig to sing, before she comes out, well,
then, he can't maneuver it through the door. He's stupid that way. He flutters
against the opening with a bit of stick that is twice as big as he is, and just keeps
on trying and trying to get it in cross-ways instead of taking hold of one end and
pulling it in after him the way she does.
2. In shadow

I sit on the back steps with Jerry and watch the rain patter down around me--
feel it, too, for it spatters on the steps right beside me. Its beating fills my ears and
the smell of the damp earth rises in front of me as I sit in my sheltered nook and
enjoy the rain.
The birds like it, too; they throng in the bushes, all fluttering their wings and
chirping and twittering-shy little brown birds, just lots of them, and shy little
blue birds. But the shyest are the red ones. They're the most beautiful, too, but
they show their beauty grudgingly. I don't think it's because they're selfish or proud
-they're just modest.
I can see the dull world brightening, the brown parched grass hinting of a green
hidden radiance. The trees bow and twinkle their leaves under the patterings of
the raindrops. The whole hillside gleams with the rich rust-color of the wet under-
brush, and the rain comes down and down.
In a little it slackens and finally just dribbles a bit. The sun throws long slant-
ing shadows over the damp face of the earth and a little evening breeze stirs up. It
spills all the raindrops off the trees. The birds are happy as anything-they twitter
so busily it does my heart good to hear them.


A patch of blue sky widens until it covers the great expanse of the sky with fleecy
clouds billowing about; and presently there is a sunset-a gentle misty sunset, all
delicate tintings that make the trees seem not green but faintly golden.
Out of the corner of my eye I can see something move quietly in the bushes. It
is a cat, one of the wild ones that live in the jungle growth back of our house. He
seems to enjoy the twilight, too. I glance at Jerry apprehensively. He is asleep,
snoring gently, with his head between his paws.
Soon it is dark, and I go into the house. Jerry stays out and later I hear him
howling mournfully. After-the-rain-time is just a wet time to Jerry.

The Senior Tacky Party began at eight o'clock sharp on Friday November the
sixteenth. The Yacht Club was decorated to represent a barn. Everyone was
pepped up and ready for a good time since this was the very first school affair of the
term. Such a motley crew! Merely the word "tacky" would not justly describe
them. After refreshments had been served and everyone had trooped upstairs
again, the energetic Seniors performed a snake dance to the strains of "Hail! Hail!
The Gang's All Here!" The Syncopators played their best that night, and w hen the
revelry finally came to a close it was to the regret of all. Everyone agreed that it
had been a long while since he had had such a good time.

"And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed." And indeed .it was revealed
as the Christmas carols were being sung in the* patio. From one of the upstairs
rooms, a cornet sounded and a chorus of children's voices was heard singing a very
beautiful carol. At the first note of the cornet a hush fell over the entire assemblage:
a gentle breeze swept over the open court and swayed the green trees to and fro.
To the people listening it was truly beautiful, a picture made perfect by music.
The most finished number was Handel's "Messiah" sung by.< the
High School Glee Club. Mrs. Baker deserves a great deal of credit for the cable
way in which she handled this recital.
The songs sung were:
Adeste Fidelis........................ ......................................................... Junior H igh Glee Club
Cradle Hymn................................................................ ........ ........ Grades 1 and 2
Silent Night............................................................Entire School
The First Noel ................... ............. .... ..................... Entire School

Hark, The Herald Angels.. ....... Entire School
"And The Glory of the Lord" from "The Messiah"................High School Glee Clubs
On January the eleventh the Juniors gave a very lovely dance at the Yacht
Club. Unlike the Senior Party it was quite formal and everyone was dressed in
his best. The Serenaders, that popular orchestra composed mostly of Balboa High
School boys, furnished the music for the evening. Quite a few of the faculty mem-
bers were present, among them Miss Miller and Miss Emmons, who donned aprons
and helped serve the refreshments.

On Saturday, January twenty-sixth, the "Big Bill" left Pier Seventeen for
Taboga. The sturdy little craft was loaded with gay Juniors and Seniors out for a
good time. No doubt they had more than a good time for when they returned late
that night they were exclaiming about the wonderful food, the good weather, and
the jolly crowd. All agreed what excellent chaperons Mr. and Mrs. Lee and Miss
Emmons were and what a big success the trip had been generally.


The Sophomore class gave a very pleasant party at the Y.W.C.A. on the night
of the twenty-first of February. Dancing and games were enjoyed. A four-piece
orchestra furnished the music for the evening. Delicious refreshments were served
by the committee in charge. Miss Davis, the class adviser, assisted.

Our Juniors seem to have done quite a bit this year; on March the twentieth they
added a luncheon to their long list of achievements. Tables were placed on the
balcony, and luncheon was served in cafeteria style. At eleven-thirty the Junior
girls began their task of serving two hundred hungry students. Potato salad, soft
drinks, sandwiches, or sinkers were on every plate. At twelve o'clock the Serenaders
began to play and dancing was enjoyed until twelve forty-five when the bell rang for
us to resume our studies.

March the second saw the "Big Bill" again headed for Taboga, with a gay party
of Seniors and Juniors aboard. Miss Miller, the Junior class adviser, was chaperon-
ing. All those who went on that eventful trip will remember it for many years to
come. Hardly had the boat got under way when Bill Rader and Harry Preston
decided to form a private party in the dory tied to the stern of the boat. The story
is: Bill made the jump. Harry did not. We picked up this slightly moistened member
of the party and arrived at Taboga without further accident. But again Fate was
against our party for we had been ashore only a short time when Betty Freeman, one
of our popular schoolmates, fell from high wall and had to be rushed toGorgas
Hospital in the captain's barge of the U. S. S. California. The trip would have
come to a close without any more trouble if it had not been for one sorrowful sextette
which came back from a hike too late for supper!

Looking back over the year we find that we have been most fortunate in having
a number of very good speakers address our assembly.
The first person whom we had the pleasure of hearing was Congressman Winters
of Wyoming, who spoke on "Territorial Expansion." Two da;s later, on January
the seventh, Mr. Hanks, a noted lecturer who was here on a tour, spoke to us on
'Aiming High in Life." On February the twenty-first, Captain Taylor, Chaplain,
of the U.S.S. "California", spoke to us on "'ltking the Most of Our Opportunities."
Monday the twenty-fifth, Commander Richardson from the U.S.S. "Denver" gave
an interesting talk on "Athletics in the Schools." Commander Richardson was form-
erly coach at the U. S. Naval Academy.

From the first Lord of the Admiralty down through the wailings of the Lord
High Executioner, to the antics and chortlings of the Midshipmite, the entire cast
of the Balboa High School's presentation of the light opera, "All At Sea", sang
and played their parts to perfection.
The solo, the trio, and the chorus work of the cast was remarkable, showing
evidence of careful and persistent training. The group singing led by Lars Ekwurzel
ap Siz loseph. with his hand picked beauties, the sisters, the cousins, and the aunts,
cause much moaning on the part of Junior Mitten as the Lord Chancellor, because
of the bareness of his existence, while he warbled out beautiful words to the more

The Senior Class, in their class play, turned out one of the best entertainments
given this year. The cast was picked only after every senior who wanted to be in
the play had been tried out. The best of the group was taken out and these seniors
were molded, after weeks of hard work under the able direction of Miss Emmons,
into real actors.
The story is one of the prize ring. Its gaiety is based on the utter incongruity
of its being unfolded in a Fifth Avenue mansion among the more or less idle rich.
It all starts because a wealthy young New Yorker needs a trainer, more to keep
him from drinking himself to death than any other reason. The fighter and his mana-
ger enter the home as servant-trainers, spending part of their time as butlers and part
keeping their employer in physical condition.
The breath-taking manner in which, once under way, they make things hum
provides laugh upon laugh. They not only save the family fortune for their benefac-
tor from his crooked brother-in-law, but then fall in love with the nurse and the
secretary, and in their spare time capture the championship ring crown and become
independently wealthy and famous.

The cast follows:

Eddie (Chick) Cowen, a coming-up lightweight.
A. B. (Hap) Hurley, his trainer and manager.......
C. Clinton Blackburn, A New Yorker... ...........
Sue Blackburn Parker, Clint's sister...................
Florence Hanley, nursemaid at the Parkers'........

This year's Inter-Class Soccer season was the most hotly contested series ever
recorded in the Balboa High School athletic annals.

All four classes were determined to win the Championship, but after the first round
of matches had been played off it was quite evident the honors would either be won
by the Seniors or the Freshmen.

Although the Seniors, who were last year's winners, outweighed the Freshman
team, they were unable to break up the splendid pass work exhibited by the Freshman

The Freshman team was without a doubt one of the most well-balanced teams
that ever played in our annual inter-class series. Its forward line was fast, shifty and
worked together while their half-backs and full-backs were strong kickers and could
be depended upon to clear the ball.

The outstanding players of the series were: Vengoechea of the Seniors, Hele of the
Sophomores, and Dew and Lamb of the Freshmen.


The high school arranged a series of three games with Cristobal. It was the
first time that B. H. S. had played Cristobal in soccer.
The first game of this series was played in Cristobal. A large crowd of rooters
went to Cristobal to support the team. The game was played in the afternoon at the
New Cristobal grounds.
From the first it was all Balboa. On a wet and slippery field the soccerists from
B. H. S. dazzled the Cristobal team with their splendid teamwork and were ne'er
in any danger of being scored against. The forwards, led by Capt. Vengoechea.
again and again brought the ball to within shooting distance. The Balboa backs did
their job well and practically no ball got to the goalie. The game ended with Balboa
on the long end of a two-to-nothing score.
The second game of the series was played at Balboa on the following Saturday.
The game was fast, full of action, and thrilling. Ball,ia started off with a pierce
onslaught in the first half, scoring two pointers before Cristobal tallied once. As
the half ended Dew scored another point for Balboa, making the tally three to one.
During the first minute of play, in the second half, Cristobal with a whirlwind
attack netted another point. From then on the play was fast and furious Intil Bal-
boa again scored. At the finish the score stood Balboa four, Cristobal two.
Dew, of Balboa, starred, making three out of the four goals. Vengiiech and
Hele also deserved commendation.
December 6, in the fastest and cleanest game of the season, Balboa lost to the
Panama All-Stars by a 2-0 score.
The first half opened with Panama taking the offensive and Balboa fighting for
every foot of ground. Just before the end of the first half, Kopcke of Panama kicked
two cross corner goals, which were too hot for Wainer to handle. At the end of the
half the score was 2-0 in favor of Panama.
The second half was a nip and tuck affair with Balboa taking the offensive and
shooting for the goal, but the Panamanian defense tightened and Balboa was unable
to score.
For Balboa, Vengoechea, Orr, Dew, Hele and Maduro were the outstanding stars,
while Kopcke and Fletcher starred for Panama.
December 7, in a game featured by excellent team work and brilliant playing.
Balboa lost to the Colombian Olympic soccer team by a 6-1 score.
Considering the team that Balboa was up against, the score was not disgraceful:
on the contrary rather good.
The first half opened with Colombia taking the offensive and Balboa grimly
fighting to ward off the Colombian attack and it was not until after the first ten min-
utes of play that Colombia was able to score the first of their six goals. The half
ended with the score standing 4-0 in favor of Colombia.
The second half was a repetition of the first half with Balboa occasionally threat-
ening the Colombian goal, but unable to score. Just before the end of the second
half, Vengoechea of Balboa dribbled through the Colombian team to score Balboa's
only goal.
Vengoechea, Dew, Hele and Wainer starred for Balboa, while De la Rosa and
Jimenez starred for Colombia.



As usual a tennis tournament was started a week or so after school opened, with
32 boys in the line-up. Due to the large amount of rain the playing of many of the
matches was delayed. causing the season to be started about a week later than last
year. In the tournament the losers in the first round, 16 in all, played among them-
selves and the eight winners played the eight losers in the second round. These
played together and the four winners played the four losers in the third round.
In this way each boy got at least two chances, against different men, to prove his
The final team was composed of nine men. 1. Frederick Maduro, Captain.
2. William Hele. 3. Amos W\ainer. 4. Somers Dick. 5. Michael Dew. 6. Jack
Maduro. 7. William Taylor. 8. Monte Maduro. 9. Edward Maduro.
The first tournament was played on December 16, 1928, against the Pacific
Court of Ancon, at the Ancon courts. The High School succeeded in not allowing
the Court a single set out of the 10 played and won the tournament 5 matches to 0.
As this was their first tournament of the season, the boys were a little nervous
so none of them showed up well. Nevertheless they did better in this than they ever
have done in the first tournament of any season before.
The second tournament was played on December 23, 1928, against the Balboa
Radio Station. As in the first tournament the boys did not allow the opposing
court a single set and won 5-0 (matches).
For the High School Dick played well while his opponent, Keating, excelled for
the Radio Station.


The third tournament was played on December 30, 1928, at Fort Amador against
the Fort Amador Army Post. For various reasons only four boys could go out to
play, the third, fourth, sixth, and seventh men on the team. Things looked somewhat
dubious but the boys got together and won 4-1 (matches).
The fourth tournament was with Cristobal High School at France Field on
January 12, 1929. The boys fairly outdid themselves for they only allowed Cristobal
5 games in the 65 played. Balboa won 5-0 (matches).
First Match F. Maduro Won from Mueller 6-0 6-0
Second Dick Drake 6-1 6-0
Third Hele Sargeant 6-1 6-0
Fourth Wainer & Taylor Mueller & Maher 6-1 6-0
Fifth Dick & J. Maduro Mundberg & Harmon 6-2 6-0

30-5 30-0
30-5 30-0 60-5
This was by far the worst beating that a Balboa High School Tennis Team has
ever given Cristobal.
For Cristobal, Harmon played a steady game but, as a whole, the Cristobal boys
were no match for Balboa.
The fifth tournament was played at the Ancon Courts on January 13, 1929,
against the Corozal Army Post. In this tournament the High School lived up to
its reputation and didn't allow its opponents a match. Balboa won 6-0 (matches).
This was the longest tournament the boys had thus far played. For Balboa F.
Maduro and Dick did good work in singles while Wainer & Taylor pulled through a
difficult match in doubles by their ability to stick. The deciding game went to over
30 points. For Corozal Smith and Lieutenant Stodter played well.

The Balboa boys did not play up to their usual form in this tournament. It
was quite evident that the Cristobal boys came over ready to do better than they
had done at home. On the other hand the Balboa boys had had such an easy time the
Saturday before at Cristobal that they thought they didn't have to work. Wikinstad
and Drake played well for Cristobal.
The seventh and last tournament proved to be Balboa's Waterloo. Here they
met their first defeat against Fort Clayton Army Post team at Fort Clayton on Jan-
uary 20, 1929. If Clayton had not had a super-player like Major Van Vliet, Balboa
would surely have won, but with the Major always on deck and a good second in
Captain Hanst, Clayton proved too much for the boys. Clayton won 3-2 (matches).
All the boys played well. They had to for they had good material up against
them. This court got the highest number of games of any court thus far played.
F. Maduro and Dick played well for Balboa in singles while Dick and Dew
showed up strong in doubles. Major Van Vliet and Captain Hanst excelled for Fort
Somers Dick acted as captain during the last half of the season and was unani-
mously elected captain for the coming year, 1929-30.

Immense interest was shown in this series, due to our team's winning two st right
games from Cristobal. The first game we took by the score of 19 to 7, and the next
Saturday, on the home ground, we won, 6 to 5.


A special train was run to Cristobal for the first game. The grandstand was
filled with students from both schools. Balboa, headed by Wood, Quinn, Held
and Reese, won this game in a walk.
Balboa got off on the right foot in the first part of the game. A hit, a passed
ball, and an error accounted for one run. In the third Cristobal got three runs,
which put them in the lead. Reese's triple with one on knotted the count in
the fourth. However, in the last half of the fifth, Cristobal scored another run and
regained the lead. Balboa stepped out with three runs in the sixth and was never
headed after that, although in the eighth Cristobal came within one run of tieing
the score.
In the ninth a deluge of hits and runs, accompanied by five free passes, sent
Maurer to the showers and swamped Cristobal. Two home runs, a double, and
four singles were reaped by the Balboa sluggers in this inning.

The Seniors took the athletic meet by a margin of twelve points. The Juniors
were second with forty-three tallies and Frosh and Sophs followed in order with
twenty-five and seventeen markers respectively. The meet was hotly contested
and not a few Canal Zone high school records were shattered.
Bridgens, a Junior, broke all former marks for the discus throw and the broad
jump. He hurled the disc 131 feet, 4 inches, and jumped 18 feet, 102 inches, in
the latter event. Rae Newhard, also a Junior, set a new mark of 14 feet, 5 inches, in
the girls' broad jump. In the girls' high jump the bar was cleared at 4 feet, 7 inches,
which is a new high mark for this event.
Much credit must be given to Edwin Jones, high point scorer for the boys, who,
besides gaining 14 points for his class, equalled the record for the 220 yard sprint.
In the 440 yard run the record suffered when Preston clipped it down to 57% se-
conds. The points were scored as follows: five points for first place, three for second,
and one for third.

The first game was played at New Cristobal playshed. The game was the most
hotly contested of all those played. Cristobal put up a stiff opposition, but was
finally downed twenty-three to nineteen.
From the first whistle both teams pitched into the game and played hard. The
score at the first quarter was eight to seven, Balboa. Then the forwards of each
team got busy and at the half the count was fourteen to eleven, with Balboa in the
lead by three points.
In the third Cristobal got away to score enough points to cut down Balboa's
lead and to pass them. This count ended Cristobal ahead by two points. However,
Balboa settled down in the last and held Cristobal down to two points while the
forwards were gaining six to win the game. The teams were fighting for possession
of the ball when the final whistle blew.
The outstanding performers for Balboa were Hele and DesLondes. The former
garnered thirteen of the team's points while the latter sank three field goals. Pescod,
gaining seventeen points for Cristobal, was the high point scorer of the game.

The game took place at Balboa pli% shdl, before a large crowd of students. The
game was hard fought and resulted in a win for Balboa.
With the whistle Balboa's scoring machine got to work and the quarter ended
with Balboa ahead, ten to three. Once it got the lead the home team was ne,-er
headed. At the half the score was nineteen to ten. The third quarter was the hard-
est fought period of the game. In this quarter the defence of both teams was good,
so that Balboa was able to get only four points while Cristobal got but a single field
goal. When the final whistle blew the score was Balboa twenty nine, Cristobal
HelM and W. \\'ood, with five field goals each, led the scoring for Balboa, while
Pescod showed Cristobal the way with eight points scored.
