A S you leave high school and go out into life you will
Look back and realize ever more strongly that your high
school years were golden. If you can drink of the bitter waters
without allowing experience to destroy faith, efface ideals or
sour the heart, you will have found the Fountain of Youth.
You have my sincere wishes for contentment and happiness

TO record the activities of Balboa High
School in 1938-1939 is the purpose of
this Zonian, but the staff has tried also to in-
corporate in it a little civic pride and school
spirit. In honor of the twenty-fifth anniversary
of its building we have used the Canal as a
theme for our plates, comparing the school to
the Canal, and the classes to ships going through
from the ocean of illiteracy to the ocean of
wisdom. Thus we hope to further the appre-
ciation of the great work done both by the
builders of the Canal and the builders of our

D EAR Diary:
I'm so happy! DONALD KENDALL,rhat nice health officer, finally lifted my quaran-
tine and I'm mumpless once more. To make it complete, PHILIP ERBE. the Eastern
Union boy, brought a telegram from MILTON TURNER, inviting me on a get-together cruise
to Panama, in honor of our 10th Graduation Anniversary.
The first persons I saw, once aboard, were LULA LaVALLE, famous movie star, in reality
none other than BEBE MONSANTO, and PEGGY WHITE who has made a name for herself
as torch singer at Beechnut Grove.
I was secretly pleased at the 45-minutes delay for dinner i my figure you know)i while the
cooks, JUANITA RUSSON and BEVERLY COMLEY, argued as to whether there were 200
or 300 calories in 3 raisins. During the argummn a hunger riot was in full suing in the engi-
neer's mess and I saw RALPH HENRIQUEZ beating the third assistant bilge wiper. BEN
YOHROS, over the head with a catsup bottle.
We are now well out at sea and it is growing late, and so to bed.
June 20, 19-9
We docked at Cristobal just as the whistle on the Cristobal laundry announced noon and
skidded down the gangplank into the waiting fleet of caramertas on ned by that ardent follower
of horses, HARRY DOWELL.
As we started down the street, we stopped at "La Peritte Pris', owned and managed by
M'sieu Le Twink BOWEN, and watched models MARY CRYAN and SHERRY AUSTIN
display the new crinkle-proof cellophane bathing suit created by JOSEPHINE BLANTON.
Meanwhile the men chatted with MAURICE FITZGERALD, famous manufacturer of the Am-
ericanized Hawaiian shirt. In his employ are designers ALICE and MINERVA CALABREVES.
DAVID TIGER and FERNANDO FOSTER model his shirts, uhich are advertised in JEAN
DeMOTT's monthly magazine "What The Well-dressed Male Should Wear." Jean has ER-
NESTO SOLIS (public enemy number 1246 and his moll FLORENCE HENRY. gunning
for CARLOS RODRIGUEZ and JIMMY RIDGE, her competitors, who edit "What The Well-
dressed Woman Should Wear." Policemen EWART HARVEY and WARREN SHERWOOD
told us that they had just captured the two, double handed, and taken them before Judge JIM
GARDNER who is still trying to convince them that they should reform by attending JAMES
YOUNG, ANGUS MATHENEY and Sister GARLAND AVERA'S revival meetings
As we left the store a popsicle vender, TOMAS JACOME rollerskated by. All patronized -
him, with the exception of Captain Turner who wasted his rime bargaining with chiva driver
RICHARD DODSON and trolley car owner ROBERT HERRINGTON to find who would
drive us across the Isthmus the cheapest. We decided upon the trolley car. The first stop was
the city of Frijoles where Mayor MACON MICHAUX led the welcoming committee com-
posed of flower girls DOROTHY GODFREY and OLGA AROSEMENA. JOE LUDLUM
presented the golden key, valued at 5 00.12 by pawnbroker ALBERT PALACIO. JOE hasn't
turned up yet with the key.
In Gamboa we found MARJORIE DENNIS, who owns and operates the "MARGIE"
beauty salon. In her employ are KATHRYN and HELEN HALL, manicurists, and MAUDE
BRUCE. MAUDE was very busy giving TOMMY SYMINGTON a lovely "dreame" per-
Passing the Rocka Breaka Smilla fraternity house, we saw JOHN "GORILLA" GAL-
LIVAN, president of Gamboa State University, leading the student body in their theme song,
"Whistle While You Work."
The next stop was the "Rainbow Roof Garden" where we heard "Jitterbug" JANE Mc-
CAW and her superswing band while the famous dance-team of DEVENEAU and HARNESS
rendered a modern version of the Carioca.
June 21, 1949
I don't remember the name of the Hotel we stayed at last night, but we were awakened
by a call from switchboard operator VIRGINIA THORNTON, informing us that muleteer
EARL MULLINS was waiting below to transport us to Obispo, the well-known winter resort.
Halfway there, we interrupted a dramatic scene between ANNE RIGGS and BILL LOGSDEN,
on location with the Panama Snapshots Corporation. After apologizing to director TACK O'-
DONNELL we continued on our way Imagine my surprise finding DORIS BROTHERSON
doing the family wash on the banks of the Chagres!
Obispo at last! While eating HORTER'S "HONEY-KIST" ICE cream at the Chagres
pavilion owned by IRENE and DORIS CHAN, MARION ORR presented us with some orchids
with the compliments of the management. Meanwhile the floorshow began, and Mistress of
Ceremonies MARTHA RAY DUNCAN introduced the "Three B's" JEANNE BONWELL,
BILLIE BOWEN, and DORIS BRADFORD, singing JIMMY WOOD'S new blue song, "Sky
Hearing a loud roar, we ran to the window and watched AUDREY TABER, aviatrix,
make a beautiful four-point landing Seeing us, she offered us a ride to Balboa. Once in the
air everyone smiled trustingly, but little Audrey just laughed and laughed because she knew
this was her first flight
We were discharged from JOHN SULLIVAN'S Hospital today. We hated to leave
JIMMY SMITH, still suffering from a severe case of inferiority complex. We said goodbye
to DAPHNE LEWIS, the night nurse who always gets mixed up in her schedule, and cele-
brated our release by going to JANET KOPERSKI'S golf club, "Thorn Turf." Here we amused
ourselves by watching golf pro THELMA FAYARD trying to teach the elements of golf to
JACK HUTCHINGS, while sipping JUNE HOLCOMB'S specialty, marshmallow fluff. Driv-
ing by in his own invention, the Wellsmobile, (it runs on liquid sunshine) RUSSEl I. WELLS,
invited us to go with him to a party. We accepted and soon found ourselves in front of BAU-
MAN'S Beef Club. (This night spot boasts the only floor show trained in the Goofy Athletic
Association, each specimen guaranteed muscle-bound.) How amazed we were to see those
three super-play-boys of "J" Street, RICHARD BRISLAWN, JULIO HERNANDEZ, and
ROY PHILLIPS being thrown out bodily for flirting with Cigarette Girl, BETTY McKENZIE.
(Kelly does all her own bouncing.) When we entered the club, we saw the members of the
Henpecked Husbands Club banquetting under the table and hunting for dimes. Master of
the hunt was JACK GAMBLE chairman of the entertainment committee.
FULVIA AROSEMENA showed us to a table close (too close) to ALVIN JOHNSON'S
Kapok Klub orchestra, the red-hottest band north of the North Pole.
Never a dull moment! With an ear-splitting crash, "Two-Gun JOHN MONTANYE
entered, with his trusty 1.45 squirt guns frothing at the barrels. I came along home, and so
July 11, 1949
I was awakened at exactly 7:361,' a. m. this morning by newspaper girl DOROTHY
IRISH yelling "Extra"! Extra! All about the drug robbery Montanye robs a slot machine in
JUDITH MIRO'S drug store!" It was the early morning edition of the "Daily Scribble",
edited by MAXINE HILBERT.
After breakfast, prepared by Chef EMILIO MADRIGAL, we went to the circus, which
had just come down from the States under the management of JOHN "BOBO" KAIN
Upon arriving, we saw ANDREE JEROME, BEATRICE LAWSON, and MARGO
MACKENZIE doing the hula at a sideshow, while BERT SHELTON was vigorously trying to
drum up sales. A blast from bugle-blower JOE SNYDER announced that the big show was
going to start, so we bought our ticket from GRACIELA SPANO and hurried into the tent.
Ring leader ALBERT MATHON, attracted our attention to the famed equestrian twins,
BESSIE PHILLIPS and EILEEN PHILLIPS. Meanwhile JUNE HAMBELTON was executing
(this one will kill you) her famous triple back somersault. Later, as we drew near to DOLO-
RES PIMENTO the bearded lady, we noticed BETTE SHEARER, the only sword-swallowing
woman in the world. Bette started on bolos when she was a senior in B. H. S.
We arrived at the Wild West show just in time to see LORNA NELSON leading the
parade astride a beautiful white mule of about twenty-five years. RUBY KENT, SUZANNE
MARSHALL, and ILA MONTGON!LRY soon rode out to demonstrate the art of bull-dozing.
Ruby was first. She hit the bull so hard that she killed it, and, since they had only one bull, the
act ended. Next on the program was a bareback race between ISOLDA Nt'ERS and ELLEN
MEAD. Due to the fact that Isolda's horse slipped and sprained Its eyebrow in the home stretch
Ellen took the cake, donated by HELENE FULLER'S bakery.
July 12, 1949
Our good ship, "Stagnation," arrived here from the other side today, piloted by IOAQUIN
CRUZ. RUTH CONNER and BRITTA MERRILL rode up on their scoorer-bikes to deliver
a cactus to BLANCHE ADLER, thr stewardess. Presently, dinner. When the big rush was
over, FRED HULDTQUIST climbed down from the chandelier and began serving.
A cry of "man overboard" soon had everyone hugging the rail There in the water was
DOROTHY YOUNG swimming around with her little pekinese. CATHERINE WHELAN,
famous aquatic star, who had just won a prize for swimming the Hellespont, died in and
saved the dog.

MACON Michaux is now a well-known professor of physics in dear old Palooka College.
Incidentally, two years ago Professor Michaux had a most interesting experience. "It
was the year 1970. I was conducting a series of experiments on the reversal of time.
I had just completed the instrument and was ready for the acid test. During the finai check-up,
one of my colleagues accidently threw the switch. The following moments will live with me
forever as the most exciting in my life. The machine hummed, rubes glowed, and then-blooey!
I was lost in the night of eternity. I saw before me scenes of happy days in high school
with the class of '39.
"I saw my freshman classmates sticking tacks on seats, throwing paper wads and airplanes.
I saw "Bobo" Kain on the stage made up as a darky in the operetta "Crocodile Island." Then,
Emilio "Maga" Madrigal was winning honors for our first year in high school, showing his
heels to the rest of the 440 runners .
"Then I saw myself looking in the Parrakeet for the list of honor roll members and it
never failed to list a few of my friends. At the dances the young upstarts were beginning their
social whirls. I remember when I was a freshman. I was just beginning to enter into the
activities offered us, sometimes becoming brave enough to ask a girl to one of the dances,
even trying out for plays. The students who couldn't be discouraged by not being given leads
the first time they tried out for a play, kept going, and were given diamond masques, or at
least had the honor of going to the Little Theatre banquet. In May, 1936, the second Little
Theatre banquet was given for the first time at the Tivoli Hotel.
"I remember when the junior college was completed, and we held the distinction of be-
ing the first freshman group having classes there.
"In my sophomore year I became a little better acquainted with the activities offered, and
tried harder to participate in them. I remember seeing "Wappin' Wharf", when Red Joe
was supposed to shoot a gun and it wasn't loaded. And also seeing "The Fool," Merchant of
Venice," and the operetta "All At Sea." Then there was a Leap Year masquerade dance at the
Tivoli and we boys surely got a treat All we had to do was sit by the telephone at home and
wait for a girl to date us. The baby dance was a prize event. Every person was required to
come in costume-and afterwards we danced to the Cotton Club orchestra. In my sophomore
year I was quite proud of finally reaching the last years in high school and was no longer afraid
to participate in any activity offered.
"In my junior year I was interested in all of the goings on about the school and espe-
cially in class meetings. Before this year I would try to say something at a class meeting, but
the words just wouldn't come out and my knees became very shaky. Now this was no longer
true. This year Dr. George Howard substituted for Dr. Fred Hosler. Health class were given
to the seniors for the first time by Dr. George Eugene. I remember when they started
handing out identification cards for us to drag along when we went to the movies, but it
didn't work at all.
"Then this year the 'B' club and the G. A. A. were first started. The 'B' club was the
club opened to outstanding boy athletes, and the G. A. A. was for the girls. These two clubs
began giving luncheons and dances, which I enjoyed a great deal. Both clubs had banquets at
the end of the year. The 'B' club had their banquet at the Yacht Club, where the) gave out
awards to the winners in all sports. Then af:er the banquet they intended to dance to a
nickelodion. The G. A. A. had their banquet at the Tivoli Hotel and had both old and new
members attending. Oh yes, I will never forget the softball games between these two clubs
held at Razzberry Park, and how the 'B' Club defeated the G. A. A.'s. I couldn't leave out the
candy sale the seniors gave in the halls, and how I scraped up all my pennies to buy some.
My old friend, Johnny Gallivan, was in an orchestra called the 'Harms', composed of high
school students. This year my music teachers were changed from Mrs. Helen Baker to Mr. Neil
"Boy, was I sore when the Zonians came out! Our junior pictures looked as though we
were skinned rars instead of people The clubhouse play, "The Eyes of Tlaloc", in which
Jeanne Rocker let out a hair-stander-upper of a screech, has left an indelible mark on my
memory. Of the many Little Theatre plays, "Hung Jury" and "Julius Caesar" were unforget-
able. One of the class artists received a letter of acknowledgment and approval of a portrait.
The artist was Irene Chan and the Duches of Windsor was her subject. Many a titter and guffaw
went thru the crowd that watched the traditional juniors vs. seniors tug-of-war, in which the
grunting juniors were dragged through the traditional fire-hose stream in the traditionally
approved manner (in accordance with the tradition of B. H. S.). That year the Junior-Senior
banquet was pretty good. During the breezy faculty speeches, Dorsey Price was seen playing
tit-tat-toe on the table cloth, Patsy Getman playing pick-up sticks with the surplus silverware,
and Roy Dwelle playing eeny, meeny, meiny, moe to choose which tool to eat with. You must
never never repeat this, but guess who tried to swipe several helpings of silverware? When
he arose from his seat they spilled out of his coat pocket.
"Now we were the high and mighty seniors; we had worked hard and had had lots of
"During vacation our B. H. S. Gymnasium was remodeled, and a new shop was built for
the boys. This year a new plan was made for commercial students, thus changing the schedules
of many seniors who had planned to take one year of shorthand. The Girl Mariners were or-
ganized to show the salty Sea Scouts how it is done. After three hectic years of building, the Sea
Scouts completed a land boat which they used as their headquarters. A general vote was held
in our junior year to try to replace scobying with a field day. The freshmen were scobied the
next year. Later on we gave them skull caps to tip to upperclassmen and a whackem pole
to salute. To relieve personal tension, a welcome dance was held after the first day of school.
It was well attended by upperclassmen, but the frosh were scarce. All Student Association
members were supposed to receive a copy of 'The Murphys Mind Their Manners.'
I remember when we had a big election for our class officers. Fred Huldtquist was re-
elected president. We had the Security Parry which went around putting up posters. Oh yes, we
took first aid and used to go down to Doctor Eugene's office and get special bandaging
lessons. I remember when I went to that dance at the Tivoli on Hallowe'en. That was a
grand dance! But how could we ever forget the play 'Three Days of Gracie' and how little
Bijou the playful pup almost stole the show! Our orchestra played for that play and was be-
coming bigger and better all the time.
"And then my machine quit on me and back I came to the present. All very, very interest-
ing. Very interesting indeed! "the professor concludes, mumbling into his beard.

M ORE violins and horns tuned
up this year for work, or play, in the orchestra than ever
To provide for all these students, and to make the orchestra a better one, the school
ordered seven new instruments. They included everything from the bass drum to the oboe.
Among those that they received were two cellos, two A clarinets, one French horn, and a
set of tympany drums.
The horns issued forth their first toots at the high school play. They were heard fre-
quently after that at such places as the college play, the Christmas program in the patio, the
high school and Civic Council operettas, and the music festival. After the music festival, the
orchestra gave concerts for all the Pacific side grade students. Director of these ac'iities was
Mr. Neil Branstetter.
Charles Fair's trumpet solos were high lights of several programs.
The orchestra made its final appearance at the high school and junior college Com-

Mr. Neil Branstetter, director, ordered instruments through the commissary, which
were paid for by the Divisior, of Schools. They purchased new songs and played them with
amazing zest. One could hear "Song of India", "Alexander's Ragtime Band", and "Little
Rastus", somewhat toned down, ejecting from the Annex.
The band played at the Admin and High School at Christmas, the opening ot the new
corral, the opening softball game at Razzberry Park, the hardball opening at Balboa Stadium,
the opening of the new shop, and the Balboa-Cristobal track meet.
On various occasions, Mr. Branstetter gave Charles Fair, sophomore, the baton.

LITTLE THEATER ORCHESTRA
FOR four years the Little Theater Orchestra has donated its talent and time to Balboa
High School and community, under the supervision of Mrs. Helen C. Baker, who ori-
This year the orchestra consisted of nine students, including student director, Bert Shel-
ton. They were Bert Shelton, flute; Thomas Bender, and Murray Wright, violins; Roy Dwelle,
viola; Charles Fair, trumpet; Gloria Shelton and Joe Haggerty, cellos; Donald Mr Caslin, cla-
rinet; and Tom Peterson, piano. It met fifth period, Tuesdays, in the junior college music room.
Rehearsals were conducted by Mrs. Baker.
The musicians played at three Little Theater functions and several outside performances.
They presented their annual program for the Ancon Morning Musical Club, at which silver cups
were awarded to five "master musicians" selected each year from the senior class.
Each member of the Little Theater Orchestra, in order to enter this honorary group, must
demonstrate outstanding skill in his first two or three years in high school.
T HE songsters of the glee clubs have warbled through another successful year.
The first enterprise the combined glee clubs undertook was the traditional Christmas
carols sung in the patio of the High School on December 22. Besides singing the old
favorites, "Glory of the Lord", "O Come Emanuel", and "Lift Thine Eyes", they offered "Halle-
lujah Chorus" from the "Messiah" for the first time. One hundred and twenty girls in white
robes marched around the patio carrying lighted candles and singing "Angels We Have Heard
The glee clubs had hardly time enough to catch their breaths before their director Mr. Neil
Branstetter, was rehearsing them for the operetta, "The Gypsy Rover". Sophia Hilbert was
chosen for the feminine lead. Fernando Tapia got the male lead. Others participating were
Janet Koperski, Bob Burkle, David Bruce, Marion Deveneau, Roy Dwelle, Jean Strauss,
Maurice Fitzgerald, Tom Lindo, Roy Boggs, Bill Etchberger, and a chorus of about rhirry.
The glee clubs made their last appearance of the year at the annual Music Festival when
they sang "The Soldiers' Chorus" and "Funiculi Funicula".

EVERY otler week there's a click-click of rypewriters, rustling of paper, shuffling of
feet, a mad scramble, and then-zoom! the Parrakeer is our.
Students scan the frciit page for the largest school news. When the page is turned over
to Peek and Boos Nesances a giggle here and there breaks the silence. "In Tune with the
Teens" sums up the newest social events. The editorials teach, arrack, defend, and praise stu-
dents and student life. Peeko shouts out his sport gossip and rhe hottest games are recorded
on the sport page All school activ'rl is interpreted to the members of B. H. S. through the
efforts of the class in journalism.
This year, each journalist was given a turn as managing editor or associate editor of one
or more pages. The entire Parrakeet was wrirren and edited by this staff.
An extra edition was issued priot to the all-school elections. This consisted of two pages
of campaign promises together with a picture of each candidate.
All told, the Parrakeer served ', worthwhile purpose. It kept the student body informed.
It added zest to school life.

QUILL AND SCROLL
UILL and Scroll, national honor society for high school journalists, is the hole-in-one
of all editors, writers, and business managers of school publications.
To be eligible for membership in Quill and Scroll each candidate must be in the upper
third of his class scholastically, which means he must have a "B" average. This single re-
quirement left several would-be candidates behind. Outstanding ability in c.itin._. writing,
or business management must also be evidenced.
Candidates were chosen trom the Zonian and Parrakeet staffs by Miss Alice Candee and
Mr. R. W. Collinge advisers.
Successful candidates, who received Quill and Scroll pins and subscriptions to the society's
magazine were: Jack Gambit, James Ridge, Virginia Thornton, Maxine Hilbert, Beverly

A T the beginning of the school year the Spanish Club was faced with a membership
problem. There were far too many members to allow for efficient management. Thus,
some had to be eliminated. Two types of slps were placed in a box. "member" slips
and blank slips. Those drawing "member" slips automatically entered the club; the less for-
tunate were dropped.
The Spanish Club is now in its eighth year in B. H. S. Its object is to develop an in-
terest in the Spanish language and the culture of Latin American countries, and to awaken
in the American people the desire to learn Spanish.
Membership is composed of Tomas Jacome, president; Kitty Arosemena, vice president;
Doris Crespo, secretary-treasurer; and about thirty members.
The Spanish Club opened its activities with the first of a series of lectures given by Agus-
tin del Saz, professor of literature at Panama University. It closed with a parry held jointly
with Kappa Epsilon, of the college.

N INE months ago a group of seven boys obtained permission to organize a camera club.
They were given a room in the junior college building for a darkroom. Soon all mem-
bers were acquainted with me fundamentals of developing and printing and were doing
their own work. The results, at first, were a bit on the bad side. However, as time went on
they were able to supply the Zonian with a great number of its pictures.
There were other activities as well. Speeches were delivered by authorities on photo-
graphy, contests were held, pictures were exhibited, trips were taken, social gatherings were
held, and a full time calender was provided for all. Not to be forgotten is the fact that, early
in the year, the membership of the club was increased to a large extent. In addition, new
equipment was received for the darkroom whichresulted in a considerable improvement in the
quality of the pictures.
The outstanding value of tht camera club is the opportunity it offers, not only for instruc-
tion from local authorities on photography, but also for the practical experience involved. For
example: many of the pictures published in the Parrakeet were taken by members of the Ca-
mera Club. This gave them experience in newspaper photography and taught them the knack
of fast developing and printing.
To the casual observer, who sees cameras being packed around the school grounds, who
sees fans twisting their bodies to get angle shots at school dances, who sees results irn the form
of bulletin board pics-of-the-week, the Camera Club must seem a live organization. But the
casual observer doesn't know the half of it.
Officers for the year were John Gallivan, president, and Paul Barnard, secretary.

BIG bugs and little bugs, little microscopes and big biology, students make uf the high
school Biology Club. This year, with 24 members, the club announced i:> purpose:
to deepen members' interest oy keeping abreast of the current press. to make and record
personal observations, and to maintain fellowship.
In the latter part of January the new officers were elected: Dorsey Price as president;
Marion Orr, vice-president; and Jane Stevens, secretary-treasurer.
Scientific reports were given at the monthly meetings, followed by each member's best
field-note episode. Emphasis in the last few years has been in individual observraton rather
than mass field trips. This past year no field trips were undertaken by the club ar a whole,
although many reports were made by student members who had observed anyhing note-
worthy on individual trips. Frog-eating snakes and breathing test contraptions were among
the items studied.

THE activities of the Chemistry Club are guided by four principles. They stimulate more
interest in chemistry. They focus current happenings in chemistry. They create a
hobby for the members. They create a better understanding of the chemistry of the
universe and man's power over it.
Officers of the Chemistry Club 1938-1939 were: president, Bert Shelton; vice-president,
John Clark; secretary-treasurer, Phyllis Deveneau; program chairman, Tom Lindo; associate
chairmen, Roy Boggs, and Howard Rhodes; publicity agent, Jane McCaw. Other members at
the beginning of the school year were Xen Hosler, Robert Wertz, Jack Sutherland, James Smith,
Vincent Bradley, Harry Hatch, Leon Harer, Albert Palacio, Jane Stevens, Lolita Provost, Anne
Warner, Allan Monsanto, and Anne Riggs.
Regular meetings of the club were held every other Thursday. It was during the meetings
that a great part of the club activity took place. Talks were given, experiments conducted and
experiences exchanged. Several times during the year, leaders in the field of chemistry address-
ed the club. Motion pictures were used extensively to illustrate the talks.
The last, but by no means the least important phase of the work was conducted in the
laboratory. Here club members carried their knowledge into actual practice.
The Chemistry Club was organized early in the school year. All members were required
to address the club as a requirement of membership.

BURIED deep beneath ninety-nine and nine tenths per cent of school activities is usually
found the Student Association. The Council, which is composed of se en student re-
presentatives of the various classes, has made it its policy not only to work for the stu-
dents, but also to work with them. With this in mind, the Council launched a drive for im-
provement of the school in general.
First of all came the installation of the student suggestion box in order to further participa-
tion in student government. Then came the new system of outing successfully Then it was
announced that members of the association would receive reduced rates at the Cecilia Theater.
Then, too, Booklets of manners were given to S. A. members: to s-.y nothing of the victrola
dedicated to B. H. S. by the S. A. Council of '39.
For those who enjoy dancing, the year '38-'39 boasted four S. A. dances plus one banquet.
In addition there were three junior college dances open to high school Association members.
As to the sophomores and freshmen, each had a party of their own. There were four Little
Theater plays, as well as operettas, debates, and contests.
For those engaged in athletics, awards were given if they were S. A. members. \nd finally,
there were bi-monthly issues of the Parrakeet, plus this Zonian.
According to observers, the Student Association was not only young in organ;.ation, but
in ambition to better B. H. S., of which it was a worthwhile p.rt.
Members of the council for 193S-1939 were Alvin Johnson, president: Janet Koperski and
John Kain, senior representatives; Dorothy Kalar and John McGlade, junior representatives;
Jim Hobson, freshman representative.
THE fifth anniversary season of the Little Theater marked a session of successful per-
The first curtain rose on two one-act plays called "Nettie" and "The Finger of God."
Crede Calhoun, Ernest Horter, John Schnake, and Howard Rhodes gave the leading roles.
The second curtain rose just in time to catch "Gracie", Louise Rathgaber, entertaining her boy
friend, John Urey, and a conglomeration of young guests. Meanwhile, Auntie, Martha Duncan,
who disapproved of parties, supposedly was away for the week-end. We saw Effie, the shuf-
fling old maid, played by Elva Bauman, almost driven to tears by Bijou, Gracie's dog, as he
practically tore the house upside down. Who could forget those two hours and fifteen minutes
during which "Three Days of Gracie" showered us with laughs?
The next curtain starred Maurice Fitzgerald as "Poor Old Jim" and Jeanne Rocker as
his wife, engaged in a moral lesson on intoxication. Stage hands stepped in and in a short time
the stage was ready for "Elizabeth's Young Man." Crede Calhoun's part was to frighten Eliza-
beth's old aunt, Daphne Lewis. Daphne believed he was insane. Gail Haldeman and Robert
Whitely, junior college directors, stood in the wings supervising proceedings
Our blood tingled with pride as a group of twenty boys and girls read the poem "The
Congo" in a talking chorus. This was a new stunt in B. H. S.
Not entirely in the curriculum of the Little Theater, but falling under its auspices, were
the speech contests. Edward Corrigan took first place with his oration "War Is Futile", and
was closely followed by Jeanne Rocker in second place and Fred Huldtquist in third. "I'm
Jesse James" exclaimed Maurice Fitzgerald and took the gold pin for his reading of the famous
Western outlaw. Elva Bauman and Florence May Farr places second and third respectively with

The seniors emerged victorious by ? score of eight to six in the water polo championship
game to win the interclass loop.
The triangular meet was scheduled to be held at the Balboa pool on March 23 with
Balboa, Cristobal, and the junior college our to win first place honors. Balboa was predicted
to valk away with the meet, the prediction being based on times made in practice swims.

BOYS WATER POLO
T WO water polo leagues swam this year at Balboa pool-interclass and intramural. The
best team won in the interclass league and at the end of the season the senior boys
sported shiny gold balls. They were well earned, however, for they stood not only for
skill and fighting spirit, but also for faithful attendance.
The second half of water polo season saw the intramural teams go into action. Bill
Zemer's team won the first half, not losing a single game. During the second half, however,
Clyde Ellis' team turned out in full force and swamped every opponent. The intramural league
consisted of four teams, Zemer's, Baldwin's,Ford's, and Ellis'.
All teams showed excellent sportsmanship, according to Coach Henry Grieser; all the boys
turned out eager to learn. Individually they could not surpass last year's crop, but they were
better than average
Among the unforgettable were Allan Ford, Wallace Baldwin, and Roy Boggs for their
outstanding ability in center position; Ted Bailey and Paul Disharoon as guards; Billy Zemer,
forwarding the highest number of goals for the entire year; and Clyde Ellis, who was mainly
responsible for the superior playing ef his undefeated team in the intramural series.

TOUCH football invaded B. H. S. three years ago. As the years go by, interest in the
sport grows. This year's league was probably the best of the lot. The teams nere much
more evenly matched and the grade-A performances turned out by such stars as Al and
Joe Mongold, "Bobo" Kain, and Bob Burkle added interest to the games.
Games between Wallace "Train" Dyer's Gophers and Howard Moore's Tigers could be
called battles of the ages-the topnotch playing of the two teams kept each from defeating
the other. A game that lasted nine quarters was finally decided in favor of the Gophers for the

man team. The teams on the stars' victim list included the all-star freshman team, which they

"B" CLUB AND G. A. A.
SPORTSMANSHIP is the keynote of the two athletic associations.
The "B" Club was formed two years ago by Mr. G. C. Lockridge, and has been going
steadily forward. At the beginning of the school year 1937-1938, there were nine mem-
bers, of whom six were seniors and three juniors. At the time the Zonian went to press, the
club had more than doubled. Of course many are seniors and will graduate this June. but still
the membership will be high, as more and more underclassmen are getting In. The "B" Club
is more or less a varsity club, and a boy is eligible only after he has been elected to an all-star
team by his teammates. After he is elected to an all-star team he is told to be present at a
certain place and certain time in order to receive his initiation. The initiation isn't exactly
rough-well, not too rough. The boy is now presented with his letter and he anxiously waits
for the chance to initiate somebody else.
The G. A. A. is the equivalent, for girls, of the "B" Club. It was started by Miss Louise
Hanna last year, and at the beginning of the 1937-1938 school year there were only two
charter members, both seniors. However, six new members entered.
The only way a girl can get into the G. A. A. is to be a member of the all-star softball and
volleyball teams or get the required number of points through the new point system, intro-
duced at the beginning of this year. The points are based on attendance, winning team, and
The "B" Club and G A. A. put on one successful dance together; then the girls showed
their initiative and had luncheons and dances by themselves.
"B" Club officers were John Kain, president, Jack Gamble, vice-president, James Ridge,
secretary, and Bill Logsdon, treasurer.
G. A. A. officers were June H.imbleton, president, Louise Rathgeber, vice-president, and
Kelly Bauman, secretary-treasurer.

THIS year's softball had as many forfeits as any preceding year, but it was success in
that allstar softballers were permitted to enter the "B" club for the first time.
From the first game it was apparent that Julio Hernandez' Red Sox would. take the
league, with Albert Lindo's Colonels making a shaky second. The reasons for the Red Sox
power were Julio's pitching, and the hitting of Joe Ludlum, Mathew Cryan, and Junior Jones.
Lindo's Colonels were a combination not to be trifled with. He had lots of luck, good field-
ers and good hitters, but no pitcher. Bert Shel.on's White Sox, under Earl Mullins' manage-
ment, were plugging along near the bottom. On this team there was a batch of glue-gloved
fielders and a goldmine of hitters like Bert Shelton, Porter Crawford, and Earl Mullins. To
their rescue came a dark horse, Jim Wood. With a tentative rise ball, some speed, and a little
control he boosted the team's morale and started them on the upgrade. Lindo's and Boggs'
teams scattered like chaff before the onslaught. Up came the White Sox to challenge Hernan-
dez. But Julio and his cohorts proved too powerful. The Whites defeated the Reds and won
the tie off for the first half. This tie was facilitated by Lindo's unpredictable luck. He defeat-
ed the Reds, who trounced the Whites, who conquered him.
This circle, with a few variations, ran until near the last of the season. Lindo was left in
the cold by the Reds. The WX'hes took the second half and trimmed the Reds foi the gold
The unlucky allstars who attended the "B" club initiation came off with the usual bumps,
bruises, and swells. Clyde Ellis turned up in school with a sling and a pillow.
W ITH the settling of the dust on the baseball diamond, basketball stepped into the sports
limelight with new teams and a new method of play.
The new plan, introduced by Coach Lockridge, was designed to allow as many boys
to play basketball as possible. Since the number of boys who signed to play the sport was large
enough for twelve teams, two leagues were formed. The "A" league consisted of six teams of
the best players. The "A" league captains took their choice before the "B" league captains, and
what was left after the "A" league, made up the "B" league. The six captains chosen to lead
the "A" league teams were Howard Moore, Bill Logsdon, Emilio Madrigal, Jimmy Ridge,
John Kain, and Julio Hernandez. The "B" league captains were Fred Ryan, Bud Huldtquist,
Bob Burkle, Norman Anderson, George Makibbin, and Vincent Bradley.
At the time the Zonian went to press, Howard Moore's Pirates looked like the team to
watch in the "A" league. In their first try they defeated Kain's highly touted Ramblers by 12
points. Throughout the contest the Bucaneers outplayed the Ramblers in every division of the
In the "B" league, there were two teams which should be fighting it out at the end of
the campaign. The Dodgers and Rams, under guidance of Fred Ryan and Vincent Bradley
respectively, won their first games easily, displaying fine teamwork for "B" league quintets.
The Dodgers set a record for the other five teams in the league to shoot at in points scored.
While playing the Cardinals in the first game the dodgers won 47 to 9. The Rams also show-
ed plenty of team work and fighting spirit in their first encounter.
At the end of the season the winners of the "A" league were tc play the 'B" league
champions for the gold balls offered by the Student Association. Two days later the all-star
team was scheduled to travel to Cristobal to play the C. H. S. all-stars at the Cristobal High

A MBITION, skill, and sportsmanship dominated in the girls' softball league this year.
At the beginning of the series, Kelly Bauman s Whizzers and June Hambelton's Top-
pers appeared to be the teams to defeat, but as the three-month season closed the
Whizzers and Toppers were on the bottom and Shirley D)er's Tornadoes headed the list.
The teams taking part in the league were Gloria Shelton's Slashers. Mary Janr Phillips'
Steppers, June Hambelton's Toppers, Shirley Dyer's Tornadoes Louise Rathgeber's Nifties, and
Kelly Bauman's Whizzers.
Players chosen for the all-star team were Jeanne Lucy, Peggy Brugge, Eloise Ramey,
Esther Miller, Ph)dellis Walbridge, Vera Howell, Connie Troubridge, Alice Hele, Dorothy

After the season was completed, all boys who played in the league got together and select-
ed the all-star team, which met Cristobal High School at the stadium on March 13. Balboa
High School won 6 to 5 in a game that will be remembered for some time to come. Cristobal
was leading Balboa 5 to 2, going into the last inning. Then the Balboa siege guns opened fire

GIRLS' WINNING VOLLEYBALL
W ITH fast names and faster reams, volleyball ranked first among the girls this )ear.
In spite of a late start the Victors. Slashers, Whizzers, Toppers, Hurricancs, Nifties,
Tornadoes, and Steppers burnt up the three months ot volleyball. Season menaces were
June Hambelton, Shirley Dyer, Kel!) Bauman, and Vera Howell. After winning the round
robin tournament, Gloria Shelton's Smashers played serious volleyball against the Nifties, but
Lou Rathgeber's happy-go-luck) team proved their superiority, copping the elimination series
from Shelton's team and then seizing the best two-out-of-three-game play-off
Laurels go to all of the captains June Hambelion, Kelly Bauman, Audrey E. laber, Mary
Jane Phillips, Barbara Hayden. Gloria Shelron, Blanca Westerlin. and Louise Rathgeber. They
worked admirably, getting the girls to come out, coaching their players, and displaying sports-
The winning softball and volleyball teams received their "B's" and a sound round of
applause at the girls' annual sports ral!y.
The rejuvenated gym provided just the atmosphere for the uniformed athletes. Regula-
tion shoes, shirts, and shorts gave the girls a chance to "kick around" and really play volley-
ball. Coach Louise Hanna was out fc- every game, refereeing and coaching. "Pass, girls! Over
the line!"and "Stop cracking your gum! would remind us that Miss Hanna was on the job.
Leaving with this year's seniors are Comley, Rocker, Hambelton, Taber, Lewis, Koperski,
and Bauman, but stepping in to try zo take their places are Walbridge, Howell, Dyer, Simms,
Brugge, and Rathgeber. Each year they are renewed, but never replaced, and each yea. B. H. S.
loses a grand gang of volleyballers who can never forget the familiar shrieks, and whistles,
and thumps that accompany the pla) ing of their favorite game.
A FTER being runner-up to "Big Bill Le
Brun in last year's tournament, Jimmy
Ridge won the annual. tennis tourna-
ment by defeating Johnny Presley 6-4, 2-6, 6-3
in three well-played sets on the stadium courts
on March 21. By virtue of taking the tournament,
Ridge received the Scholastic tennis medal which
is given to all school champions throughout the
United States by the "Scholastic Coach" n,.aL.ei
Ridge won the tournament by defeating John
Towery, Roland Stemmer, Sonny Pereira, and
Johnny Presley. Presley reached the finals by
eliminating Louis Towery, Tommy Peterson, Bert
Shelton, Jack Hutchings, and John Anderson.
While this was Presley's first complete tournament in Balboa High School, R.idge had
competed in every tournament from his freshman year on, until a senior, he finally took first
The doubles tournament was scheduled to begin after the Easter holidays, when the Zonian
went to press. Several of the combinations that had already announced their desire to com-
pete in the doubles and were being given a little better than average chance to win the event
were Stemmer-Hutchings, Matlowsky-Shelton, and Ridge-Kain.
The winners in the boys' singles and doubles tournament, along with the girls' singles
champion, were scheduled to travel to Cristobal on May 9 to match strokes against the Cris-
tobal champions for the school championship of the Isthmus.
W HEN the rainy season began, the girl
archers of B. H. S. started shooting. The
freshman and sophomore girls went out
on the range every Tuesday, and the junior and
senior girls tried their skill on Thursdays.
Daphne Lewis, senior, and Eloic Ramey,
junior were the only two veterans this year. The
new members were Martha Duncan, Loin, Nelson,
both seniors, Jane Tompkins, Peggy Brugge, Doro-
thy Kalar, Adela Snediker, Agnes Atkinson, and
Margaret Kunkel, all juniors.
The sophomore and freshman Robin Hoods
were Carolyn Barlow, Alice Hele, Constance
Trowbridge, Shirley Dyer, Ester Miler. Jane
Lindstrom, and Laura Tapia.
At the time the Zonian went to press, Daphne Lewis had the highest score, and Eloise
Ramey was second.
SITH Jonnny MacMurray out of the way,
the golf championship for Balboa High
School was left wide open for the large
crowd of turf diggers who signed up to play golf.
MacMurray, in the 1958 tournament, had finished
36 holes in 157 strokes, which was good enough
to defeat his nearest rivals.
At the time the Zonian went to press noth-
ing definite could be stated as to where the tourna-
ment would be held or how many holes would be
played The professional at Pedro Miguel links
had offered his services as golf instructor for the
players, who knew very little about the game.
His first attempt to teach golf to B. H S. stu-
dents was scheduled for April 29 at the Balboa
stadium. The golf classes were to be held every
Saturday after that until one week before tourna nent play began.
Among those who were expected to be at the top at the end of the match pla were lack
Hutchings, Johnny Presley, or George Makibbin. Among the girls Anne Warner is said to be
an outstanding player.
The Zonian staff wishes to express its
appreciation for the helpful cooperation it
has received from the members of the faculty,
the journalism c-ass, the Camera Club, the
seniors, Jack Fisher, the typists, and others.
They) have given invaluable assistance in
making this Zonian possible.
