BALBOA HIGH SCHOOL,
Balboa, Canal Zone
Want to commend the Class of 1938 on the fine school
spirit and school citizenship that it has exhibited dur-
,ng its high school course and particularly during the last school
year as seniors. It was a real joy and pleasure to work with you.
Convey to you my heartfelt wishes for success and happiness
in life. I hope that each of you will find your Shangri-La.
FRED IW. HOSLER.
Harold J. Zieren
Because of his personality, his patience, his
many ideas, his ability to see the student point
of view; because he has devoted hours of his
time, and has been an adviser in every sense of
the word, the senior class of 1938 with grate-
fulness and respect dedicate this Zonian to Mr.
Harold J. Zierten.

The staff has not been able in this book
to interpret each individual squeak in the
Amador bus, or the smell of the rain, or its
drumming on the awnings, or that good time
at the Junior-Senior Banquet, or those many
hours of study. But it has, it hopes, caught a
thing or two characteristic of Balboa High
School, 1938, that will serve to bring back a
wealth of memories in the years to come. With
that hope, the staff humbly offers the result
of its efforts.

A s I timidly enter the Canal Zone World's Fair of 1952, managed by its first woman
I[,n.il-cr, Betty Haldeman, I am confronted by a sign which informs all that the Magic
Carpet will take them to see all their old friends for only 50c. A sudden desire to see
my graduating class seizes me and I step on the carpet, say the magic word, and am soon soar-
ing up into the sky above Balboa. Circling over the exposition, I see Kermit \'tbli,,ook,l mil-
lionaire, in his new Coxmobile, named for its d:,i i.(ir, Bill Cox, driving into the fair. Judy
Mohr and Margaret Grier are doing tricks on horseback just inside the gate. The old Balboa
po:toffice, lately remodeled, serves as the home of Foo Candies created by Katherine Marchi-
kitis. Next door Sandberg and Sanborn demonstrate their invention to make old Ford V8's as
good as new.
Floating through the sky down the Canal, I see a bridge built by the now prominent
cnginer r, Tom C. Sullivan, with his foreman, John de Camp, directing the workmen. To the
right, where Far Fan used to be, George and Marguerite Moore have their summer home. Leav-
ing the canal is the battleship USS Sinker which has Larry Baker as its captain, who, shaking
while Admiral C. B. Wine inspects the ship, nearly swallows his tongue when Lieutenant Win.
Johnston stumbles over the cleats and falls on the admiral.
After a short while I arrive in New York, where I see Pat Madigan and Anita Komp
arranging the top shelves of Boyes Brothers Department Store, while Olive Kalar and Dorothy
Pihisky do the bottom shelves. Down the street is the Rathgeber-Curtis Culture Parlor where
one learns to cultivate an original laugh. A large crowd is assembled right off a tennis court and
Mildred Anderson is in the midst autographing tennis racquets after her victory in the Inter-
Going routh I arrive in Baltimore, where at Johns Hopkins Hospital the Drs. Runyan,
Fitzpatrick, Presley, and Zappi, with their nurses, Norma Evans and Theresa Raymond, are
huddled around a bed trying to figure out what makes the brain go. In a private room Beatrice
S.i.hlminllL.. a bustling nurse, is comforting Henry Poole, who has broken his ankle in the in-
ternational high jump.
Leaving Baltimore I soon come into Washington, D. C., where the Senate is in session
-Donald Mitchell, vice president of the U. S., is taking charge while Senators McCoy, Le Brun,
Dalton, and Casey are debating whether all schools should contain escalators or not. In town
Vance Howard, the great inventor, is now perfecting a pill, which endows the user with a
year's knowledge of any one subject. And there is Archie Byrne, taking pill after pill.
The carpet turns west and in a short while arrives at Cleveland. Here, in Alice Strauss'
Modiste Shop, are Lucille Journey, Mary Nell Brugge, and Shirley Johnston, dc-iLni-lL clothes
and modeling them on the professional models, Pat Ryan and Marian Dodson. In a music hall
of this same city are Marie Haggerty, Janie Hamlin, Neva Henrie, Horace Cobb, Elmer Dailey,
Edward Cornwell, and Ralph Dugas, who, now in a symphony orchestra, are following the in-
structions of Robert Whiteley, who is trying to play and lead at the same time. Around the
corner a huge building looms up before me, and I read a sign which informs me that this
is the Bunker Brothers Academy for Loafers. On the all-"A" honor roll of this academy I come
across two vaguely familiar names, Robert Byrnes and Jack Ewing, now star pupils.
In Chicago I find Helen Dryden, the famous cartoonist for Udden Daily News. trying
to concentrate on her funnies while Margaret Meigs types and Betty Sanderlin proof reads aloud.
At Wally Stewart's exclusive night club I find Archie Gibson singing Hawaiian music accom-
panied by Billy Lloyd on his guitar. The waiters, Harry Foster and Howard Clarke, are giving
an exhibition by balancing glasses on top of ea-h other. Walter Muller and George Whaler are
still on the dance floor arguing as to which on? knocked down the most couples in the last
dance, while Fay Fuller and Elizabeth Tonneso stand patiently by. Final score: Whaler-12,
Muller-11. The Swing Sisters-Reba Alexander, Virginia Sommer, and Dolly Bowen-are busy
getting ready for their next number.
Denver has become a center of attraction since "Love Hits a Bullseye," written by Blanche
Urey, has been the best seller novel of 1952. Ren Weir, Fred Wells, and Francis Crlste have
stopped tinkering with model airplanes and are going in for the real thing, in the same city.
In Salt Lake City balloting is going on to pick the perfect specimen for "Miss America."
Among the contestants are Kirty Adams. Claire Bougan, Doroth) Stilson, Connie Hayden, Eileen
McGuire, and Margaret Douglas. The judges have used up four bottles of aspirin already and
are still in a quandary as to the winner. Ed Sullia.n, a verbose and bellicose Lwyer of Reno.
is defending Mary Jane Comley in her divorce suit against Frank Turner, whose lawyer is none
other than Bob Van Siclen-
"Provost's Rise to Fame," produced by Gail Haldeman. is now appearing in San Francis-
co with John Talty and Virginia Ridge topping the billing. The pretty ushers. Berty Jones, Helen
Michaelson, Evelyn Pearl, and Dot Esperanza. are busy showing people to their seats, sometimes
losing even themselves, since they are not used to so large a theater. Across the street Beryl
Cooke and Hawain Underwood are conducting a class to reach people how to adopt a Southern
accent. Virginia Cabell, the young debutante, is having her 'Loming out' party where Margaret
Davidson shows her latest double-trucking step, which is snon taken up b\ everyone, led by
Judith Segard and the French duke, William French.
The carpet leaves San Francisco and turns north After a while I arrive in Seattle where
Beverly Neville, who is now happily married, is busily complying with the requests of Blanche
Miller, also married, who came over "just to borrow some butter.' On the coast of Washington
I find Paul Fessler, professional photographer, taking a picture oif Schmidt's big fish that got
away! Alaska is becoming very well known since William Keller opened up his Alaska Ice
Cream Cone Company. Geoffrey O'Connell is begging the designer of the cone. Eugene Mulling,
to put enough room in it for five dips. Eileen Burmester. his pretty secretary, is busily typing on
the new William Russon typewriter which has a whistle instead of a bell.
My trip almost over, I finally get to Mexico City, vliere the Central American Olympics
are being held. At the swimming meet Jack Walbridge and his twin Mack have just completed
their last lap and are waiting the decision of the judge, Jimmy Hunt. who cannot make up his
mind which one came in first- And there is Vernon Snyder doing his famous "twirler" dive.
I now progress to the field meet where Larry Roberts and Fr.ncisco Coyle are competing
in the discus throw. Everyone is sitting on the edge of his seat but Duke Bain, who is standing
up, throwing his arms around in the air and hitting everyone with his elbows. All of a sudden
Jack Carey's loud laugh is heard above all the rest of the noise and I see him talking and laugh-
ing with Tom J. Sullivan and Milton Hotter in a box at the front of the stadium. Johnny
MacMurray, famous golf champion, is doing his stuff at the Olympic golf course.
Then I come back to Panama City, where a vigorous presidential campaign is being waged.
Albert Hilbert, presidential candidate, Chief Backer Delvalle. Cabinet-member-to-be Malo, and
Secretary Manuelita Oller are very busy arranging the campaign. On the other side Tomas Pa-
redes, presidential candidate, Chief Backer Ayala, Cabinet-member-to-be Valdes, and Judith Her-
rera, his secretary, are finding it hard trying to oppose their opponents. Going up Central
Avenue I see that Quintero's Shoe Shop, and Villegas.Borden and Co. 5 and 10, have closed
for the day because of the election- At the Balbia docks I see Bruce and Billy Glaze, just back
from their tenth trip around the world. Now I come to the former Margaret Brown's house, and
to a sewing circle composed of the former Bertha Hack. Elsie Sanger. Julia Wilson, Eleanor
Lindo, Virginia Welch, Marjorie 'arner, Alice Stetler. and Sarah Williams The last two have
just married the Blank twins. The chief topic of discussion is lhot the hostess makes such wonder-
ful apple pie.
Ellen Conlan, designer, has just created a masterpiece in the new Balboa Heights library.
Jean Irwin, head librarian, is bu:ily looking for "The Doodlebug and its Relation to the Mo-
dern World" written by the great scientist, George Morgan.
All of a sudden the carpet disappears from under me and I fall to the earth with a
bang. My magic carpet has been the Chinese rug on the floor of my bedroom-and there rest I.

THE SENIORS SELECT
T make an impression on mo-t of the senior class takes something. Because of various
somethings, the group pictured on the opposite page all but one was cho en by
vote of the senior class to be represented in this rogues' gallery, honor section, or asso-
ciation of frauds, as it has been variously designated.
The seniors found it difficult to decide between Pat Ryan and Bernice Rathgaber for
the beauty prize, so we include both of them. How take Helen of Troy or Cleopatra. (Do we
hear senior voices saying, "You take 'em! We have Bernie and Pat! "?)
Then take this one. He has a profile; he has teeth; he has eyes. We would let you read
the rest of the starry-eyed report of one of our staff members, only we have seen Jack flip
them across to third, run a fast quarter in the relay, tear up half an opposing team on the
Lridiron, and there might be misunderstanding. We refer to Jack Carey, most handsome male,
class of '38.
Good things in small packages! She gives friendship; she works as hard for others as for
herself; others' problems are her problems; and her scholarship is among the best in the cla s.
And when she turns on her magnetic smile, the world is brighter. This is Gail Haldeman, of
course: personality girl, class of '38.
Companion piece is John Talty. With a kind word for everybody, and a friendly smile,
John conducted the affairs of the senior class to a successful conclusion. Everybody's friend,
"Mono Blanco," as he is affectionately known to the senior class, was chosen per onality boy.
Two energetic young 'uns who modernized the ancient dance were "Liz" Tonneson and
George Whaler. Liz is tall, blonde, and lithe; the great Archie Byrne once said of her, "When
she lands on your feet you don't even know she's there!" And, regarding Ge,'r.-, if a flea could
hop as far for his weight as George can for his, then the flea could circumleap the globe. Best
dancers, cla:s of '38.
Ed Sullivan is all over this book. We couldn't keep him out. And since the seniors
insisted on picking him best male athlete, here he is again. VI\'Ihuit casting any aspersion on
Ed's personality, we think the nearest approach to his running, leaping, and general cavorting
on track, diamond, gridiron, and hardwood court is the kangaroo. But a kangaroo couldn't guide
a dozen school affair; Ed Sullivan could, and did. For his record, see the sports section.
And now, Virginia Ridge, girl athlete, class of '38. We refer you to the page devoted to
girls' volleyball for one of the reasons why Virginia was the seniors' choice. Her own skill is
outstanding, but she can lead and inspire others as well. As president of the G.A.A. she had
much to do with building up the successful aplomb against which the "B" Club crashed and
The Zonian staff put this one in. Its all-observant eye saw what most of the school over-
looked; namely, that a lone sophomore boy had succeeded in breaking the monopoly of the
all-A honor roll held for so long by the fair sex. For that feat, we give you Richard Ericcon,
our nominee for All-American!

Under the direction of Mr. Neil V. Branstetter the glee clubs presented a program of
Christmas music on December 22 in the high school patio. The 'irl, in the white-robed pro-
cessional that has come to be almost as much of a tradition as the program itself, opened with
"Angels We Have Heard on High." The boys' chorus, with a soprano descant, rendered "0 Come
Emmanuel." An a capella chorus of girls did "Lift Thine Eyes," by Mendelssohn, after which two
numbers of Handel's Messiah, "Surely He Has Borne Our Griefs," and "And the Glory of the
Lord" were presented by the entire chorus.
The second public appearance came on April 7 when the combined glee clubs participated
in the Music Festival in the girnn.i iiUm The program was under the direction of Mrs. Helen
Currier Baker and Mr. Neil V. Branstetter.

n future years, those who remember their high school music at all are likely to remem-
ber two events, the traditional Christmas music in the patio, and the festival in May.
In both of these events the orchestra took part, contributing its bit to make them the
successful occasions the audience found them. Other appearances that drew considerable favorable
comment from the public were on the occasions of the two Little Theatre clubhouse plays, when
this musical group, directed by Neil V. Branstetter, offered overtures and popular numbers.
So much the public saw and heard. But the rehearsals had their moments, too. It is re-
ported that, when Mr. Branstetter ascends to heaven, Gabriel's trumpet section will be in for it.
G eorge Whaler played the biggest instrument the tuba; Marie Winkes played the
smallest the triangle. In between, thirty other people played thirty other instruments
of various shapes, sizes, sounds. Assembled under the direction of Neil V. Branstetter, they formed
the 1938 model of the Balboa High School band.
Bands must be versatile. They must be reverent and militant, tender and bold; they must
march, maneuver, and toot all at once. The school year 1938 saw the high school band well tested.
In natty new uniforms, it marched for the Civic Council minstrel parade. It played for one of
the teas given by the Governor. It gave two programs of Christmas carols, one from the steps of
Administration Hill, one from a truck that toured Balboa and Ancon. It helped further the
musical education of the grade school children with special demonstrations. It opened both the
twilight baseball and twilight softball seasons. It marched in the Memorial Day parade.
LITTLE THEATRE ORCHESTRA
The Little Theatre orchestra occupies a unique position among Balboa High School mu-
sical organizations. It is the smallest, with only nine members. Its members play
without curricular credit, because they want to. Itis directed by a senior student, Marie Haggerty.
The rise of this group to prominence has been rapid. Playgoers at the Little Theatre heard
it at the opening performance and at each one thereafter. The Junior MacDowell Club enjoyed
one of its programs. It furnished the musical background when the girls of the household arts
department displayed their taste in materials and talent in design at the annual style show. It
even wound up by giving a public concert of its own.
The musicians of the orchestra thank Helen Currier Baker for the inspiration to begin it.

cipally by Mr. Ward.
Noteworthy among the club's activities were three occasions Dr Samuel Lewis spoke at
one of the earlier meetings on the history of the Castillian tongue. Sr. J F. Villafranca interested
the group i ith a discussion of the Costa Rican banana industry. On April 23 the club enjoyed a
social evening, "Tropical Night," at the Little Theatre, made appropriate by native dancing, na-
rive dress, native folkways.

Two Thursdays a month for most of the school months a group of students so much
interested in chemistry that they failed to get u-1. ,I._i of it during the regularly scheduled
class and laboratory hours met in the college building "to create a better understanding
of the universe and man's power over it."
Call it avocation, call it hobby, call it plain gumption; nevertheless club projects included
such widely varied activities as growing crystals, p.lir...r il.h-i'. investigating mineralogy, by a
membership which had previously proved its capability by presenting reports of come seriousness
and magnitude as a requirement of membership. Group discussions concerned current investiga-
tions in chemistry. On several occasions these discussions were led by scientists of prominence.
Officers were Bert Shelton, president; Daris Deal, vice-president; William Stadig, secre-
tary-treasurer; and Dorsey Price, reporter.

The clubs acti cities varied. One meeting was devoted to ancient Incan life; another
concerned the digger wasp. Several meetings were enlivened with motion pictures, particularly
the filmed record of the field trips made by the college biology club to El Valle, the Darien
country, and other places of interest in Panama. A joint meeting with the Canal Zone Natural
History Society heard of the latest developments in research in the field of cancer. Late in April
an interest in oxygen deficiency and its effect on aviators grew into a tour of Albrook Field for
the nuhole school.
The last meeting of the year. appropriately enough, was research into the effectiveness of
hamburgers and hot dogs to appease human hunger Yes, it was a picnic on Ancon Hill.

Out of a flurry of paper, pictures, copy and paste, the 1'1;S Zonian emerged. The labors
of the staff were characterized by much good feeling, a mood which the editors hoped
to be able to get into the book. That it came out at all was evidence of industry.
The work was in general charge of Henry Poole as editor-in-chief, assisted in various
editorial capacities by Walter Muller, Reba Akxander, Claire Bougan, Margaret Douglas, Ben-
jamin Weir, and George Whaler. Lucille Journey drew pictures; Jimmy Smith and Paul Fessler
took pictures; Martin Fitzpatrick, quickly aging as photography editor, shouted for pictures. Jean
Irwin, Margaret Grier, and Beverly Neville wrote copy. Gail Haldeman, Dolly Bowen, and Helen
Dryden helped with this and that in between Parrakeet assignments. The whole journalism class
alternated between helping and getting under foot.
Somehow, the book got published. It is the hope of the staff that they have managed to
imprison between its covers all that has been important in the school year, much that has been
interesting. If the Zonian, 1938, should serve in future years to recall anything vivid, or happy,
or useful, concerning Balboa High School, 1938, the staff will be content.

Borders! House Curtain"
Those Immortal Lovers, with Jeanne Rocker, Bernice Rathgaber, Robert \\'lLccl\. Martin
Ca-ey, and Mr. Turbyfill, is on the boards to opmn another successful Little Theatre season. Pro-
gram pieces with it are A Midsummer N:ic:11's Dream. directed by Gail Haldeman and staged
with an all-freshman cast, and Sl/'il.i rc.dl presenting one of the cleverest tts of the year and,
as the movies put it, an all-star ca:t of six seniors boys.
It cannot be said that the Little Theatre members sit around and talk about Art. The
applause for the opening group of plays had scarcely died away before Dirty Hands, a comedy
in three acts, was in rehearsal. Janet Koperski, William LeBrun, and Virginia Ridge pointed up
the complications while the seniors were selling tickets for the enrichment of Student Associa-
The new year brought new ideas, among them The Spy. broadcast from the main build-
ing to the Little Theatre and there amplified for the enjoyment of the audience. Sixteen drama-
interested boys and girls had their chance to attempt something new and difficult. The result
was excellent. Included in the program for the evening was the reading of "An Old Sweetheart
of Mine" by Principal F. W. Hosler on a stage lighted only by the dancing light of a hearth fire.
On the same night Janie Hamlin and Franci: Coyle starred in Hung Jury. with a truly dramatic
plot and jury to support them.
The second clubhouse play was a mystery, T7'c Eyes of Tialoc. with twelve characters, each
a wholly different individual. Never before had so many different accents, makeups, characters,
and thrills been thrown together to make such an off-the-beaten-path type of mystery. It was a
real victory for the Little Theatre and for the sophomore clas:, whose efforts brought the
Association the tidy sum of $171.45.
Following the precedent set two years ag. of presenting a Shakespearean play in modern
dress and with modern staging against a neutral background, the Little Theatre closed its season
with Julius Caesar. Walter Muller played Cae:ar, Francis Coyle played Brutus, William LeBrun
played Cassius, and John Talty presented Anthony. This play had not been presented when the
Zonian went to press.
For these eight plays, a hundred and seventy-one students tried out, a generous and cha-
racteristic cross-section of the student body.
At the close of the year, dramatic honors came to six seniors, prominent in acting, stag-
ing, business management, directing, or writing. To each went a bronze plaque, the Diamond
Mask, greatest dramatic award Balboa High School has to offer.
Not directly under the auspices of the Little Theatre, but inspired by its activities, three
speech contents and a debate series were held in the Little Theatre building. In November came
the extempore speech contest. Donald Mitchell, in the opinion of the judges, spoke most effec-
tively. Jane Hamlin was adjudged winner in the oratorical contest that followed, and again won
in the interpretive reading contest in February. The debaters in the May contest disputed vigor-
ously back and forth as to whether Balboa High School should require military training through
a junior R.O.T.C. unit. Preliminary debates were won by three teams, Gail Haldeman and Vir-
ginia Ridge, Robert Whitely and Martin Casey, and Donald Mitchell and William LeBrun. The
winners in the finals were to be awarded plaques in recognition of their championship.

The Zonian staff is left to its drudgery with paste and scissors while the newspaper
journalists adjourn to Room 34 to engage in the exciting activity of gathering and
editing the news. Peeko must be fed. Pick Ups must be picked up At least one ear must al-
ways be listening for an interesting Psssst! Such feature material develops its own personality and
following, but behind it is the impersonal job of interpreting to students and parents the life ot
the school. That is what editors are for.
Editors-in-chief have been Gail Haldeman, Ruth Udden, and Katherine Adams, at dif-
ferent times. Other editorial positions have been filled by Beryl Cooke. George W\haler. Margaret

The journalistic hole-in-one is election to Quill and Scroll, national honorary journalistic
society open to outstanding reporters, editors, and business managers. The principal stumbling
block of candidates is the requirement that they must be in the upper third of their class to
be elected. This requirement eliminated several. Those elected were Judy Mohr. Katherine Adams,
Ruth Udden, Margaret Meigs, Beryl Cooke, George Whaler, and Chester Wine.

It is not a miracle that produces food on the plates and flowers on the table at the Junior-
Senior Banquet, or that hires orchestras for senior dances. Business managers do that.
They are the ones who do most of the work and get least of the credit. But they keep
things moving smoothly for the rest of us.
We know that we have not pictured all those who come under the broad title "business
manager." If we did we must surely have a score of committee members who had programs
printed, or sold tickets. For instance, there was Pat Ri in. circulation manager of the Parrakeet.
Her industry got our papers to us on publication day.
Miss Hayward knew where every penny of Student Association funds went. Miss Butler
advised William Russon, who, with the help of capable assistants, solicited advertising for and
took care of the business affairs of both high school publications. Betty Haldeman was Russon's
counterpart in the Little Theatre. Roy Dwelle's concern was the treasure-chest of the Student As-
sociation. Maurice Fitzpatrick, Ed Sullivan, Fred Huldquist, and John Talty were not properly
business managers at all, but anyone who thinks presidents and social chairmen for junior and
senior classes have no business duties has simply never been social chairman of junior and senior

Early in the year, "in order to make a more united and thorough Association." the Stu-
dent Council did adopt and establish a new constitution. This step began a year of pro-
gress for the Council, a year in which it made appreciable gains as a clearing-house of
student opinion, as a coordinator of student activities, as a rall)ing-point for student spirit.
The president of the Council, selected by principal and faculty, was Donald Mitchell. The
members, elected by the various classes, were Gail Haldeman and Tom C Sullivan, seniors:

Ed Sullivan turned back countless enemy shots that would have gone for rallies had he missed.
But teams are not made of rtars alone. Martin Casey, Vernon Snyder. Henry Poole, Donald Mir-
chell, and Vance Howard contributed the kind of defensive and cffensie dependabilitv that makes
stardom po sible.
Undefeated in the interclass competition, the seniors sought stiffer opposition against the
Panama Olympic team. Honors were even in this series. In April the high school champions met
and defeated the best of Cristobal High by a score of 2-0. During the contest the Atlantic
siders failed to get a try at goal.

Because the class of '38 made a clean sweep of the interclass meets, and because the Cristobal
meet came too late for inclusion in the Zoiian, senior swimmers were chosen to represent
one of the high school's most popular sports.
They were well worthy of the distinction. Any class that can boast such athletes as the
Walbridges, the Haldemans, Vernon Snyder, Ka:herine Adams, Martin Fitzpatrick, Francis Coyle,

ED. SULLIVAN'S Ramblers rambled through the intramural football league without serious
restraint. What competition there was came from Mulling's Trojans, whose best effort was
a scoreless tie early in the second half of competition. The Ramblers' passes, Sullivan to
Carey, seldom failed of completion, and Sullivan's sprints around end piled up a superabundance of
yardage that kept opponents back on their heels. Byrne at center was another mainstay on both
offense and defense. The natural result was that the Ramblers completed their season with one tie
and no defeats.
Other teams entered were Wine's Huskies, Foster's Green Waves, E. Mulling's Trojans, Schier-
loh's Rams, and Whaler's Gophers.
The Ramblers placed Ed. Sullivan, Carey and Byrne on the all-stars. Other selections, after a
poll of all players, included Coyle, Sanborn, and Joyner of the Huskies, M. Walbridge of the Green
Waves, J. Walbridge of the Trojans, Schierloh of the Rams, and Dyer and Whaler of the Gophers.

AFTER the late rains, which had washed out the patience of the early baseballers, some 65 play-
ers took over the stadium. Pitchers worked up to their fast ones; batters found the swing
that meant scoreboard tallies; fielders felt the smack of ball against glove. Ultimately, five
teams were chosen: Emilio Madrigal's Giants, John Talty's Pirates, Harry Foster's Yankees, Ed
Sullivan's Cardinals, and John Schierloh's Dodgers.
Madrigal's Giants pitched, hit, and fielded their way to the championship. Schierloh's Dodgers
were second best.
Not all the good players were to be found among the Giants, however. Selections for the
trophy team, directed by Coach Lockridge, revealed that, in the opinion of all the players, the best
possible team for 1938 would be:
Pitcher: Jack Schierloh
Catcher: John Talty
First base: Scoops Carey
Second base: Harry Foster
Third base: Jack Gamble
Shortstop: Jimmie Ridge
Left field: Maga Madrigal (captain)
Center field: Jew Sullivan
Right field: Red Willett

ED. SULLIVAN, senior captain, paced his team to victory in the inerclass meet when he won the
220-yard low hurdles, set a new record in the 120-yard high hurdles, broadiumped into first
place, and led off for the victorious relay team. Total score for the seniors was 71. Next best
were the sophomores, with 45 points. Nine firsts, a half dozen seconds, and three thirds wenr to
Both the 100-yard and 220-yard sprints saw Byrnc breaking the tape. Tom Sullivan hurled
the discus for a first and the shot for a second. Carey leaped into first place in the high jump, clear-
ing the bar at 5' 4", followed by Poole. A new javelin record was achieved by Whaler, with a
toss of 145' 3", for five more senior points. Byrne, Talty. Carey. and Ed Sullivan lowered the
440-yard relay record to 47.3 seconds.
Among the sophomore winners was Urey, who vaulted to a new record at 9' 1" and took a
first in the 880-yard run a second and a half under the record Howard Moore earned himself a
gold shoe in the 4-i0-yard dash.
The only junior winner was Dyer in the shot put.
Though all members of the senior team were not able to emerge winners, several made
efforts that were outstanding for perseverance and sportsmanship. Among them are Archie
Gibson, persistency itself in the discus throw; Francis Co..le, who, while he did not place in the
interclass meet, won the discus throw in the triangular meet a week later; Vernon Snyder, second-
place winner in the high hurdles; Jack Walbridge, who placed second in the javelin throw.

D ESPITE Balboa High's victory in the final event of the day, the 440-yard relay, the score
sheets revealed that Cristobal High had won the triangular meet by a half point. The
track season was closed for the year. Gone until 1939 was Balboa's chance to even mat-
ters. The scores:
Cristobal .......................... ............. 51 points
Balboa .............................................. 50' /
Canal Zone Junior College ................ 3512
One record only was broken, when Ed. Sullivan of Balboa completed the high hurdles in 16.6
seconds. Peeko, writing in the Parrakeet, called attention to another newsworthy fact when he wrote:
"Although this is the first time in three years that Cristobal have had a track team, they managed
to produce a good one."

ONDESCENDING observers like Peeko of the Parrakeet found much that V as amusing in the
antics of the 98 girls who formed the intramural league in girls softball. Less superficial com-
ment found in it one of the high spots of the girls' sports eair. If the girls were less adept than
their male schoolmates, they found more of the spirit of play. If the scures reminded of a track
meet, the multitude of runs were scored to the accompaniment of the heartiest cheering of the season.
From the first, Virginia Ridge's Shags looked like sure winners, until Elizabeth Tonneson's
Truckers began the stretch drive that brought them the championship Other teams entered were
Betty Haldeman's Topnotchers, Gail Haldeman's Susie Qs, June Hambelton's Big Apples. Elva
Bauman's Hurricanes, Bernice Rathgaber's Smashers, and Mildred Anderson s Crackerjacks.
Highlight of the season was the intensity of competition between the Shags and Truckers,
each game between the rivals being marked by cose scores and heightened suspense.
The girls were inclined to give a great deal of credit to M-:s Hanna and the various team
captains for the fact that interest was maintained at such a high point throughout the season.
Underclass interest was particularly high, indicating no lessening of competition for 1939.
Among those prominently mentioned for the starring positions of 1959 are underclassmen
Nora Giavelli, Florence Ferguson. Shirley Dyer, Barbara Hayden, and .ean Lucy.
A S the Zonian went to press, nine basketball teams were fighting it out at the
Gymnasium five afternoons a week. The nine: Ed. Sullivan's Rams, Bert Shelton's
Pirates, Jimmy Ridge's Colonels, Howard Moore's Ramblers, H. Foster's Boiler-
makers, George Whaler's Buckeyes, Bill Logsdon's Giants, Emilio Madrigal's Celtics,
and Elmer Dailey's Dodgers.
After the first few games it was evident that the Giants were going to ret a fast
pace for the rest to follow. It was expected, however, that with such individual per-
formers as Logsdon, Dailey, Madrigal, Ed. Sullivan, Carey, and others scattered among the various
teams, upsets would be frequent. Rules changes, too, were favoring the dark-horse quintettes at the
expen-e of the favorites.
At the halfway mark, Ed. Sullivan's Rams had given the Giants the most trouble. It was
even being predicted that when the Rams' team play improved, the Sullivan quint would come
through to the championship with little difficulty, a fact that the Giant fans vigorously denied.
Whatever the outcome, the aims of the intramural program were being achieved: vigorous
exercise by means of games in which all comers could take part.

FIVE teams offered competition in the boys' softball league George Whaler's Colonels man-
euvered their way to the first round championship. French's Indians scalped all opposition in
the second round. In the third round Bert Shelton's Cubs play fully slapped down their com-
petitors. Other teams in the league were Mulling s Trojans and Van Siclen s Braves
The championship playoffs saw the Indians ambush the Colonels and hunt down the Cibs
to emerge victorious.
There is no all-star team picked in softball. Had the players balloted to a decision, their selec-
tions might have lined up like this:
Pirther-French Shortsop-E Mulling
Catcher-J. O'Donnell Left field-J Mongold
First base-Sandberg Right field-Ryan
Second base-Mongold Center field-Whaler
Third base-M. Walbridge Short center-J Valdes
Athletes still arguing over the merits of their respective favorites mention most often that
French's broken finger, the result of a line drive through the box in the first of the championship
games, was all that kept the Indians from easy victory, and that Julio Valdes' short fielding was like-
wise all that kept the Colonels in the running. It is still mentioned, too, that umpires found soft-
ball not only exciting but, at times, downright dangerous.
2 T ROM February until May, the tennis courts near the Commy echoed
Switch the smash of hard-driven balls as this year's tournament pro-
gresred. The marked interest in tennis, which brought out 33 boys
and 35 girls, can probably be attributed to the tennis ladder tournament,
a new type of competition for Balboa High net addicts.
The boys and girls were arranged on their ladders as their names were
drawn for the position. The object of each contestant was to reach number
one rung by defeating those above. The boy in this position on May 1 won the award for cham-
pionship. The first eight girls on the ladder on May 6 played off an elimination tournament to
decide the be:t.
The new method of play assured challengers of close competition in their own classes, was
thought to be the surest method of giving ambitious players all the games they could schedule
while at the same time providing an undisputed champion.
As the Zonian went to press Jimmie Ridge was holding down number one position which
he had won by coming up from rung eleven. Mildred Anderson and Virginia Ridge again looked
like winners among the girls.
W 7ILLIAM TELL and Robin Hood were probably better marksmen
VV with the long bow than the Balboa High School girls. It is not
likely, however, that the two arrow experts were more enthusiastic.
t Nearly forty girls spent a large part of April aiming at targets and nursing
I Ancon students, trudging daily homeward the last long mile, counted
the targets set up against Administration Hill part of the familiar land-
scape. It was planned by Director Hanna that they would remain part of
the landscape until April 30, when the final archers' tournament would take place during the May
Day Program. Thenceforth they would be stored away until 1939.
It was thought that the champions for 1938 would be found among Roberta McGuire, Eloise
Ramey, Daphne Lewis, Peggy White, Janie Hamlin, and Jean Irwin.
SIN May the golfers got their chance. The fairways, greens, and traps
of the Fort Amador course swarmed with some 25 golfers of all
degrees of proficiency, each intent on securing for himself the high
While i were digging divots, the 25th, Johnny MacMurray, was
pursuing birdies so con istently that it was generally believed that the
Panama Amateur Open champion and Olympics doubles victor would have
little trouble annexing the high school crown as well.
Other golfers expected to make creditable showings were Jack Hutchings, recently transferred
from Cristobal, Bud Huldtquist, Eugene and Ho:ace Mulling, and John Schierloh. At the time
the Zonian went to press, four golfers had con uered not only the 32-par iron nine and the 36-
par home nine, but their opponents as well Among them were Hutchings, MacMhurray, Eugene
Mulling, and Schierloh. These name-, wih other winners, were chalked up on the second-round
scoreboard for further competition.
F ROM April 15 to May 15, the deep bass of rolling balls, the piping
treble of feminine voices, and the clash and clamor of falling pins
echc-ed among the rafters of the Balboa clubhouse. Again down the
battle-scarred alleys nent strikes and spares
Last year the freshman girls rolled off with the honors, but this
year, because the alleys were available only twice a week, the freshman
and sophomore girls were excluded from the bowling program. It was
expected that rivalry between seniors and juniors would be intense.
As usual, it was planned that the best bowlers would be selected to meet the Cristobal girls
during long vacation. Miss Hanna had good players, well worthy of choice for the lob of avenging
the 1937 defeat, in Elizabeth Tonneson. June Holcomb, Daphne Lewis, and Elva Baumann.
