The Swink

1940


Balboa High School
Balboa, Canal Zone






























If, in your high school experience, you have realized a goal in life's
work which you are anxious to attain, if you have found out whether or
not you are adapted by nature and training to follow the goal, you will
have received much that is valuable from your high school experience.
Ability to work with your fellow-men, and to see the other fellow's point
of view, will mean much for success in the years that lie ahead. I hope
that each and every one of you will have the satisfaction in life of doing
a job well and of finding contentment and happiness.

Dr. Frcd W. Hosler







DEDICATION
To Eddie Sullivan, classmate and friend, the Senior
Class dedicates this book. His death on April 27 took him
from us, but it could not efface his jolly spirit, his friendly
smile, nor his willingness to lend a helping hand wherever
he was needed.

The Faculty


The faculty, bless their hearts! What would we have done without them?
Who were they? Our friendly principal, for instance, Dr. Fred W. Hosler, and
Mr. Ben A. Williams, superintendent of schools, Dr. George Howard, and Mr.
Lawrence John on. That is a good start. But these were men more or less behind
the scenes. More prominent in our school life were our classroom teachers, whom
we saw every day. Air. Neil V. Branstetter taught band, orchestra, and glee club.
Remember his boat? He went and fold the thing...... Miss Mary E. Butler patient-
ly showed the seniors the intricacies of shorthand and typing...... Mr. E. W. Hat-
chett, definitely Southern, and very jolly, handled geometry, algebra, and trigono-
metry...... Miss George Wardlaw} equally Southern, with immeasurable charm
pointed out how "a" could equal "z"....... Miss E. D. Robson led a heroic life keep-
ing Spanish 9 and 10 students in line........Miss Mildred Swenson, a new teacher,
taught typing and business correspondence and arithmetic...... Miss Ruth Wright
was the lovely new library assistant...... English and speech were taught by Mr.
Subert Turbyfill. and we really went in for his Little Theatre plays.... Mrs. Harold
F. Marker was the likeable new physics teacher...... Miss Olga Klima, another new-
comer, taught household arts...... Mr. Raymond L. Walter was our latest general
science professor...... Mr. C. A. Batalden was king of the woodworking shop......
and Air. Af. C. Franklin ruled the metal shop...... Miss Agnes Eneboe, gentle and
sweet tempered, taught English, history, and American problems...... Miss Kathe-
rine Jessup, noted for her sense of humor, taught English...... Miss Frances Maguire
and Miss Betsy Ross were those two helpful secretaries in the office...... Mr. George
O. Lee offered biology to us laymen...... Miss Alice Candee, whom many of us
had in Junior High, taught history...... Art students were taught by a real artist,
Miss Beatrice Gardner...... Miss Olga Frost, of the lovely low voice, taught French
and Spanish........ Mr. Allan B. Ward, with the slow, philosophical smile, also taught
Spanish, and Latin...... Mr. Sigurd E. Esser played tennis-and taught English and
vocational guidance, too...... Dr. Hervey P. Prentiss, senior adviser, ran the library
and taught American history...... Miss Alice Parsons; who taught English and
Latin, was the other class adviser...... Dr. George Eugene, school physician, took
time out to reach us health...... Chemistry and biology classes were taken over by
Airs. Alfred S. Holt.... Miss Myrtle Whaley taught, with boundless energy, Eng-
lish and history...... Mr. Roger W. Collinge. who wore such nice ties, was the
journalism teacher, censor-in-chief of the Parrakeet, and taught English...... Mr.
H. J. Zierten taught all the mechanical drawing classes...... Our physical education
teachers were Miss Louise Hanna, Miss Dorothea Rector, Coach G. W. Lockridge,
Coach Herbert Crowley, and Coach Henry Grieser.





















Miss and Mr. 1940:


Through all the trials and tribu-
lations of the construction of your
book, we, the staff, have been aid-
ed and abetted by our private pa-
tron saint, the Swink. The mar-
velous powers of the Swink, plus
his see-it-all, know-it-all, and tell-
it-all character, make us feel sure
that the book will serve its pur-
pose in life.
In creating the annual, the staff
has endeavored to create a book
which will bring back memories to
the class of 1940. This is their
book, intended to reflect the per-
sonality of the school and of the
class. If at any time in the future
a member of the class of '40 re-
opens his copy of the Swink, we
hope that he will hear once more
the hum of the study hall, the
swish of the rain outside the win-
dows, or the shouting from Razz-
berry Park. If he does, we con-
sider our job to have been accom-
plished.
The staff submits to the class
of '40-its book.

History

ANCIENT
In the year 1936 the Freshman Period began. From the blind, groping
darkness of the Junior High Age the students emerged into the bright
beginning of a new era. Brittle sheets of yellowed Parrakeets unearthed after
great difficulties from among the files have helped us piece together a little
information about the early years of the senior class in Balboa High School.
We find much mention of John McGlade, who was president of the
freshman class. Vernon Seeley had been elected, but abdicated. Vice-president
with McGlade was Barbara Stout. Louise Rathgeber was secretary, Billy Kuhn,
treasurer, and Margaret Brugge was student representative.
The wise man of this period was Mr. E. W. Hatchett, adviser of the fresh-
man class, who was assisted by Miss Conrad.
The intelligence of the freshmen was not on a high par-there was one
all-A freak, however: Lolita Provost.
There were two plays in which freshmen took part. Howard Rhodes and
Harry Hatch stole the show in "Wappin' Wharf" and Louise Rathgeber and
Robert Thomas starred in "The Fool."
The freshmen made their debuts at several dances. A reciprocity agree-
ment was made between the freshmen and sophomores, and they attended each
other's dances.
The outstanding athlete of this period was Joe Young.
Further records were destroyed in the June Exodus.

EARLY WORLD
Three centuries flew by and the year 1937 ushered in new sophomore
class officers. Joe Hunt attained the high and exalted position of president.
Fernando Tapia was vice-president, Elizabeth Johnston, secretary. Dorothy
Kalar and Vincent Bradley were S. A. representatives. Mr. Paul Evancoe and
Miss Alice Parsons were class advisers. Richard Ericson made history by break-
ing the girls' monopoly on the all-A honor roll.
The Powers That Be decreed there would be no scobying this year but
the freshman theme song was still "My Hair is Your Hair!"
The big men in the athletic field were "Reds" Willett, John Urey, Howard
Moore, and Bobby Burkle. Lou Rathgeber, Gloria Shelton, and Mary Jane
Phillips were the first sophomores to make the G. A. A.







History

MEDIEVAL
Time marched on, and the class elections, coinciding with the national
elections, ended with George Makibbin, president; Betty Sutherland, vice-
president; Louise Rathgeber, secretary; Lefty McGlade, and Dot Kalar, S. A.
representatives. Junior advisers were Dr. Hervey Prentiss and Miss Agnes
Eneboe.
Eddie Corrigan made his footprints in the sands of time with a fiery
oration on war. Corrigan was also toastmaster at the Junior-Senior banquet
and co-starred with John Urey in "Night of January 16." Fernando Tapia
was the dashing lead in the high school operetta, "The Gypsy Rover". The
big dance of the year was the "Forty-Niners' Ball".
This was the first year that the new gym was used and in it were held
some of the gladiatorial combats between C. H. S. and B. H. S. The inter-
school track meet was won by 29 points with Anderson, Mongold, Davis,
Gaines, and Burgoon scoring most of the points and adding their names to
the sports honor roll. Joe Young was outstanding in softball and Bob Burkle
set the pole vault record at 10 feet 2 inches. The climax of the sports year came
when the juniors won the annual tug of war for the first time in ten years.
The big event in junior history was the Junior-Senior banquet at the end
of the year, when Fred Huldtquist, president of the class of '39, entrusted to
the class of '40 the spirit of Balboa High School. We all left the banquet a
little older and a little wiser. We were practically seniors.


MODERN
After four years of labor and laughter we reached the last chapter of
our high school history, our last and busiest. We sailed into this year with
confidence and pride, knowing we were high and mighty seniors.
Fernando Tapia became president, Mary Jane Phillips, vice-prerident,
Louise Rathgeber, secretary, Jane Tompkins and Lefty McGlade, S. A. repre-
sentatives.
The year was socially begun with the "Break the Ice" dance held at the
gym, where all four classes and even the alumni got together for a final fling
before settling down to the serious side of things.
We started out *with glowing plans for a senior tree, a senior play, a
senior book, a senior picnic. The picnic was held at Gamboa, and was a right
royal success. As the saying goes, a lovely time was had by all.
The Gaa Gaa Girls and the "B" Club held a joint dance .The G. A. A.
gave their usual yearly luncheon (cold beans, baloney, and rolls). We organized
a pep squad, composed mostly of girls, with Doris Currier as one of the cheer-
leaders. There were no new names added to the list of athletic heroes. McGlade
starred in baseball, Burkle in football, track. Howard Moore was captain of the
football team, Eddie was captain of the all-stars. The first fencing class was
organized.
As "The Swink" went to press, history was still in the making.

Listen, Seniors, while we tell you...... (Just in case you have forgotten)......

The events that make the raga...... Of our class, the class of '40....... After
summer and vacation...... Back again we came to high school...... And
Sto meet the little freshmen...... And the other underclassmen......

Came a dance to get acquainted...... Came a sport dance at the
SPlayshed...... In November came dramatics,...... Many people

bound for Eden,...... Seeking jobs or else detecting......
fi '.' Who it was committed murder....... In December came

the pigskin...... And a battle with Crisrobal;......
,. Long and fiercely raged the combat...... But with

six-:ix score it ended....... Neither team came

our the winner....... Neither team went
home defeated....... In December, too,

was music,..... Candle lit and very
lovely...... In the school and round

-. . the courtyard;...... And the glee
club sang like angels.......
SThen for one whole month
we labored...... 'Til the

l p end of the semester.
......Then came

rest and relaxa-

S tion.

And a picnic at Gamboa-.... Lunches by the girls provided,.... Appetites by
all the boyfriends.... Then still greater relaxation-.... Carnival and merry
making,.... Costumes, serpentine, and streamers,.... Dancing, singing, and
confetti.... In the moon of February.... Came another play, "Spring
Fever",.... Showing search for high explosive.... And endowment
for the college:.... And the students rocked with laughter....
Then a dance for all the seniors.... Planned and put on by
the S. A.... Helped to pass the days that shuffled.... Slow- 7
ly on toward graduation.... Then the junior college
students.... Held a track meet with the high school
....And we did our best against them.... Then al- ,
most before we knew it.... Came the Junior- O

LITTLE THEATRE

Under the watchful eye of Mr.
Subert Turbyfill, director of
the Balboa Little Theatre,
senior dramatists this year contri-
buted to the success of the two
comedy-farces staged at the Balboa
Clubhouse.
"Headed For Eden," given on
November 16, saw Jane Tompkins
in one of the leading roles, with
John Schnake, Louise Rachgeber,
Joe Burgoon, Vincent Bradley, and
Margaret Brugge as members of
the supporting cast. The advent of
"Spring Fever" found Bob Burkle
holding down the male lead, ably
supported by seniors Bill Brown,
Allan Monsanto, Anne Chipman,
and Margaret Sullivan.
Other seniors, including Dorothy
Kalar, who acted as business man-
ager for both productions, filled
various important positions in stag-
ing and business affairs.










AMr. Purcell: Anne! She's had
a heart attack!
Airs. Purcell: Anne! My poor
girl! Oh, this is terrible! When
did it happen?









Lou: The thing I hate most
about using this typewriter is
that there's always someone like
you hanging around it. Why
can't a gal be allowed a little
peace and quiet? That's all I ask
in this life-peace and quiet.
Ed: No use, sister. This room
is an eternal volcano of activity.
Take it or leave it.








Airs. Spangler: Well, Vi c,
where did you come from?
Vivian: Doecn't he look hand-
some?
Vic: Tut! Tut! You're the one
that's worth looking at. Isn't she
beautiful, Mrs. Spangler?

PARRAKEET

The clickety-clack of typewriters
coming from the journalism room
spoke for itself; the Parrakeet was
going to press. Soon students would
be scanning the front page for
news of the latest dance, turning
to the sports page to find their
names in the list of all-stars, stop-
ping to chuckle with Peek and
Boo. Some read, some laughed,
some put serious thought to the
editorial column-and the Parra-
keet had served its purpose. It had
informed and amused its readers.
Published by the journalism class
for the Student Association, it was
staffed by seniors. The paper was
almost entirely the product of stu-
dent effort, for it was made up,
edited, and administered by a stu-
dent staff. In order to give each
student a chance at one or another
of the editorial positions, provision
was made for frequent changes in
staff. Those who showed ability
were often appointed for a second
or third term.
But only a portion of the work
was done there in the makeup de-
partments. Editorial writers criti-
cized and praised in the "Billboard"
and the editorial columns. Report-
ers shouldered the job of inter-
preting school life in front page
and sports column. Feature writers
put life and humor into Peek and
Boo. Some never became editors,
but it was their work that the
school read and enjoyed.
But editor or proofreader, every-
body had a busy good time when
the Parrakeet was going to press!













< ITHE SWINK

T ast year it was the
Zonian; now it's the
Swink, senior from cover to
cover. The old gave way to
Sthe new, and in the new we
*. 8 i" see just a little green book.
But to the yearbook com-
mittee it has been more than
just a book; it has been a job.
A peek into the journalism
room would have shown Jeanne McLavy, editor, hard at work planning the
new volume. Another glance to a corner of the same room might have fhown
Mary Jane Phillips and Agnes Atkinson with their heads together in search of
new and better ideas. Around the school we might have seen Xen Hosler on
the trail of a picture or Willard Lucy tracking down the dope on some senior
athlete. And no one could have missed Jack Schnake with T-square and drawing
board carefully making up mounts.
Directed by Mr. R. W. Collinge, sponsor, another group composed of
Barbara Miller, Robert Wertz, Jane Stevens, Barbara Stout, Grace Schack, Bill
Brown, John Linney, and Sara Keith, assisted in the writing of the various
features and contributed their help to the completion of the volume.

STUDENT COUNCIL

Our Student Association Council, working in cooperation with
students and faculty, planned and planned and worked and worked,
and out came the many school activities with which the members
of the Student Association have been privileged-everything from
athletic award gold-balls to the Junior-Senior Banquet.
Directing the Association were President Bob Burkle and eight
councillors representing the four classes, including Jane Tompkins,
John McGlade, and Secretary Ann Green, senior representatives. Bob
was chosen by a student vote taken last year. He had been nominated,
along with several others, by the faculty.
The Student Association functions for this year have featured
six dances and the support of such activities as the Little Theatre
plays "Headed For Eden" and "Spring Fever" and the production of
the Parrakeet and Swink. The school elections for class officers and
representatives were under the management of the Council. It also
sponsored the tutoring plan, whereby backward students can learn
from forward ones, and the student orientation committee.
The Council helped the individual to help the whole, and the
whole to help the individual.






BAND AND ORCHESTRA

Shoulder to shoulder stood the high school band and orchestra, giving
support to Balboa High activities.
Balboa rooters at the annual sport tilt with Cristobal were encouraged by
the oomph of the tuba, the blare of the trumpet and the rattle of the drum. And,
not confining itself to sports activities alone, the band played at the massed
band concert, the presentation of the historic flags, and the music festival, and
helped to welcome our returning swim champions from South America.
The school orchestra contributed greatly to the success of the school plays
and of musical programs at Christmas time and during music week. From
these ranks came the music award winners, Joe Haggerty, Gloria Shelton, Bill
Gaines, Dick Little, and Vernon Seeley.






QUILL AND SCROLL
Top ranking award for student journalists is membership in Quill and
Scroll, international honor society for high school journalists. The coming
of spring found hopeful members of Parrakeet and Swink staffs awaiting
publication of the names of nominees. Membership in Quill and Scroll carries
with it the assurance that the person accepted has shown some special ability
in one of the various departments of journalism, such as editing, writing, or
management. This year the list of nominees included Marilynn Davidson, Neal
Small, Bill Brown, and Sara Keith, one time editors-in-chief of the Parrakeet;
Jeanne McLavy, Swink editor; Xen Hosler, business manager for both Parrakeet
and Swink; Margaret Brugge, advertising manager for both publications; Louise
Rathgeber, circulation manager; Jane Stevens, reporter and feature writer; and
Arthur Wilcox, editorialist.

CAMERA CLUB
There are always a number of cameras being packed around the school
grounds, and so it is only natural that their owners should get together, as
camera bugs will, and organize a club.
This year the camera club found itself in the enviable position of being
able to inherit darkroom facilities from their predecessors of 1939. Thus they
were able to enjoy the use of good equipment and materials, to say nothing of
expert instruction in their use. Camera club activities this year were marked
by the activities of various members in taking pictures for both yearbook and
Parrakeet.

BIOLOGY CLUB
Once each month the bug-dissectors and flower-analyzers of Balboa
High met as the Biology Club to discuss scientific happenings of common
interest. Their meetings included talks given by members, motion pictures
and slides shown by Mr. G. O. Lee, club adviser, refreshments, and general
discussions. The senior members were Jane Stevens, vice-president, Nancy
Norton, and Vincent Bradley.

HOUSEHOLD ARTS CLUB
The domestic lassies in Balboa High, in order to perfect their knowledge
of the arts of the household, organized a Home Economics Club in February.
Seniors Marilynn Davidson, Barbara Lavinghouze, and Marybelle Perkins were
elected as president, vice-president and treasurer.
Highlights of the club activities, which included two meetings a month,
one business, one social, were a lecture by Genell Blirs and a Mothers' Day tea.


John Kiley was one of the principal artists of the mural, "The Construc-
tion of the Panama Canal", reproduced on the inside cover of this volume.
The mural represents heroic manpower and the wheels of progress in the
Canal Zone since 1904.

FOOTBALL

Six teams opened the 1939-'40 touch football season, with Joe Young's
Green Waves and Vernon Seeley's Huskies looming as the possible "bone
crusher" champs. Other teams were "Lefty" McGlade's Rams, Bob Burkle's
Panthers, Jackie Michaelson's Tigers, and John Davis' Gophers.
The first half contest became rather exciting when McGlade's Rams came
from behind to defeat Joe Young's Green Waves and tie with Seeley's Huskies
for first half honors. In the playoff the Huskies defeated the Rams 6-0 through
a fluke. Seeley chucked a pass over the goal line, where Diz Ridge of the
Rams, in attempting to knock it down, slammed it into the hands of pass
receiver Walter Baker for a touchdown.
Seeley's Huskies then went on to win the second half and the champion-
ship. Outstanding on the team were Howard Moore and John Towery, with
their running and pass interceptions.

BASEBALL

After three weeks of intense Christmas-month practice, five teams
entered the annual tilt for the "gold ball" championship. The five
teams were Paul Ridge's Pirates, "Lefty" McGlade's Yankees, "Heno"
Horter's Indians, Tommy Larsen's Tigers, and Jack Michaelson's Cubs.
Michaelson's Cubs and Horter's Indians, the favorites, soon drew ahead
of the rest of the teams and were battling it out for first place. In the final
game Horter's Indians defeated Michaelson's Cubs 10-5 and captured the
school championship.
The best players of the year, however, were not all to be found on
either the Indians or Cubs. In the opinion of the players, the best battery
combination was Burgoon and McGlade; first base, Anderson; second, Bud
Huldtquist; third, Jack Michaelson; short, "Heno" Horter; left field, Howard
Moore; center, George Skinner; right, John Linney. This nine represented
Balboa at the annual Balboa-Cristobal fracas on the Gold Coast. By the bare
margin of 1-0 Balboa eked out a victory. This was accomplished by means
of Burgoon's four-hit hurling and John Linney's screaming triple in the
fourth.
For four years "Babby Joe" Burgoon had hoped and waited for the
chance to pitch an all-star game. When that chance arrived, he acquitted
himself nobly.

TENNIS
The tennis season began this
year with more than sixty
racqueteers in the compe-
tition. The elimination bracket sys-
tem used last year was used again.
Johnny Presley, last year's runner-
up and this year's favorite, had
little trouble in sweeping through
the slate to take the tennis crown,
but he met able competitors in
Bob Thomas, Norman Matlowsky,
and Roland Stemmer, all top-flight
tennists.
In the finals for the crown, Pres-
ley met Roland Stemmer on the
Ancon courts. Stemmer took the
lead in the first set only to lose
it and two more after Presley set-
tled down to his usual consistent
game. The scores were 6-2, 6-0,
6-1.
This year's tennis doubles were
exciting, in part because a group
of teachers entered the bracket. The
teacher combines were Hosler-
Hachett and Esser-Lee. The Stem-
mer-Thomas duo defeated the
Barker-Presley combine to take the
doubles crown.


WATER POLO


The water polo competition
opened this year with a
schedule of interclass meets.
John Foley, Bill Brown, Raymond
Midence, Jack Marsh, Arlo West-
brook, and Allan Monsanto repre-
sented the seniors, but they were
able to offer little resistance to the
waterbug juniors. Midence was con-
sidered the finest goalie in Balboa
High.
In their first all-star game with
Cristobal, Midence and Foley were
selected to represent Balboa in the
key positions of goalie and center.
The game opened with Cristobal
favored, but Balboa held them
scoreless the first half. In the sec-
ond half, with the arrival of new
subs, the team came to life and,
led by Robert Hutchings, made six
goals to defeat Cristobal.
The second all-star game between
the Gold Coast and Balboa took
place just after the Swink went to
press. With its strong team Balboa
was expected again to down Cris-
tobal.

BASKETBALL


As the Swink went to press,
Eddie Moore's Buckeyes
were favored to win the 1939-
'40 basketball season. Five teams
entered the league, Rafael Reyes'
Pirates, Howard Moore's Tro-
jans, Eddie Moore's Buckeyes,
and Jackie Michaelson's Celtics.
Moore's Buckeyes, playing
consistent basketball, came from
behind to conquer Rafael's high-
ly toured Ramblers and win the
first third in the "A" league.
Throughout the season Rafael
Reyes and Howard Moore dis-
played the exceptional playing
ability that had given them such
a high rating in the Panama
League.
The "B" league entered five
teams, too, with the Tigers the
conceded winners.
A new league, the "C' Lea-
gue, was formed for the first
time in order to take care of the
large number of players. Com-
petition was so close in this
league that the "Swink" could
not pick a winner at press time.

SWIMMING
This year's swimming team
is one of the finest Balboa
has ever had," said Coach
H. J. Grieser when questioned
about this year's swimming stars.
With such famous stars as Allan
Ford, Billy Zemer, and Crede Cal-
houn, it is no wonder he was able
to make such a statement. This
year's team boasted twelve seniors,
Mike Dailey, John Foley, Jack
Sutherland, Dick Little, Bill Brown,
Jack Marsh, Raymond Midence,
Frank Aloy, Arlo Westbrook, Wally
Russon, and others.
The seniors' first encounter was
with the junior-sophomore combi-
nation, in which they lost, although
John Foley did his best to hold the
juniors down with the number of
points he scored in diving.
Alan Ford is listed in the Inter-
collegiate and Interscholastic Swim-
ming Guide of 1940 as one of the
seven outstanding swimmers in the
United States. Alan has often re-
ceived invitations to various meets
in South America, where he has
distinguished himself more than
once.

TRACK "

The 1939-'40 track season opened with a dual track meet, on March 2,
between freshmen-seniors, and juniors-sophomores. The meet was easily
captured by the juniors, but plenty of competition was supplied by the
Moore brothers, Eddie and Howard, who ran away with the 880 and 440, while
Joe Burgoon carried away honors in the high jump with a leap of 5 feet 6 inches,
and Bob Burkle captured the discus with a heave of 98 feet 4 inches.
On March 9 an open meet was held with all-star track team places promised
to all who made first, second, or third in their respective events. This was an
exceptional meet, with the Moores breaking the 440 and 880-yard run records.
Howard sprinted the 440 in the fast time of 53.2, while Eddie broke the tape
at 2.115 to score a new 880 record. Rafael Reyes broad jumped his way to laurels
with a leap of 19 feet 81/2 inches.
In the annual Cristobal-Balboa meet, Balboa won, 70!.,2 to 33!2. The Moores
easily won their events, with Burgoon and Pafael Reyes taking the high and
broad jumps, respectively.

SOFTBALL

Pushed along by the grade-A pitching of Robert Hutchings, Vincent Bradley's
e Cardinals coasted through the 1939-'40 softball season undefeated. Five
teams entered the league: Bradley's Cardinals, Guy Young's Giants, Aubrey
Lewis' Ramblers, Vernon Seeley's Colonels, and Joe Young's White Sox.
The Cardinals, helped by the indomitable spirit of "'Windy" Bradley; piled
up an enviable record by suffering not one defeat during the year.
Due to a lack of players, Seeley's Colonels were disbanded after they had
forfeited three games.
The softball all-star selections included eight seniors out of a team of fifteen.
Joe Young took over behind the plate, with Joe Haggerty substituting, while
Aubrey "Perito" Lewis fielded them in center. Vernon Seeley chased long ones
in left field and "Dick" Erbe and George Makibbin helped hold the bench down.
In the annual tilt between Balboa and the Gold Coasters Balboa slugged
its way to a 19-9 win over the "salt water" boys.
Rex Stoner came through in fine style with a homerun to score four. Aubrey
"Perito" Lewis poled a homer and a double for the only 1000" average of
the day.

BASKETBALL


For the firct time in the history of Balboa High,, the girls played nine-court
basketball this year. Of the eight teams participating, Shirley Dyer's Pen-
guins emerged victorious.
In the Cristobal clash the girls were defeated 15-12.













SWIMMING

Girls' swimming competition opened this year with the high school water
polo team meeting the Junior College girls in a practice game. Most out-
standing were Grace Schack, Polly Perkins, Marybelle Perkins, and Gloria
Shelton. Later, these girls took part in the annual freshman-senior, junior-sopho-
more meet, in which they did rather well.
In the New Year's meet Gloria Shelton, Marybelle Perkins, and Grace Schack
again carried the senior colors to honors.
The Aquacade, featuring costumes and dances, and depicting scenes of
Panama, had many high school girls among the performers. Gloria Shelron, Mary-
belle and Polly Perkins, and Grace Schack were outstanding.



SOFTBALL
This year's softball for the
girls started with the
same captains and teams
that played in the volleyball and
basketball tournaments.
Favored to win the softball
title were the Penguins, cap-
tained by Shirley Dyer, but they
suffered a severe setback by the 9
co-captained (Margaret Brugge-
Vera Howell) Tornadoes, who
defeated the Penguins to snatch
top position.
The other teams were Lou
Rathgeber's Nifties, Jean Lucy's
Phillies, Esther Miller's Scotties,
Phydellis Walbridge's Sharp-
shooters, Eloise Ramey's Step- *".u 'm u l

The Swink Views

That inquisitive little fellow, the Swink, still pokes his nose into what
doesn't concern him. Listen while we relate his latest adventure in the land
of tomorrow!
One day he found himself strolling along the edge of the third set of
locks. The "Califphony", a training ship, was in transit. Strutting at the
rail for the benefit of Alice Marine and Barbara Hayden were cadets Hugh
Norris and Jack Pryor. Also aboard was John Schnake, Secretary of the
Navy, on an inspection and fishing trip. The ship docked beside Allan Mon-
santo's Taboga Steamship, interrupting Captain Bud Barlow, who was
swabbing the bridge.
Swink trailed after the cadets to a dime-a-dance joint owned by Ela
Anderson and Vernon Seeley. Bouncers Wally Russon, Joe Young, and
Johnny Davis were doing a thriving business. Dick Little's swinkaroos pro-
duced rhythm while Fifi (Marybelle) Perkins wailed "Slide Mongoose."
Swink left, then, and wandered into the Palacio, where he found Edgar
Quintero, the new president, talking with Boss Tapia, Right-hand-man
Luciano Sanchez, and Left-hand-man Raymond Midence. The Presidencia
was upset by rumors of a revolution led by opposing party members, Bene-
detti, Chevalier, and the Talavera brothers. Also present was John Kiley,
Communist party leader, who protested George Maduro's monopoly of the
Maduro stores. Bill Brown, reporter, and photographer Arthur Wilcox were
sneaking around.
The meeting over, Swink followed the latter pair to the newspaper office
S of "The Spade" (We Dig Up the Dirt), owned by Marilynn Davidson. Latest
headlines stated that John Foley and Bill Sherlock were up before Xen
Hosler, chairman of the C.O.I.O.U.A.A.R.E. (Committee of Investigation of
Unamerican Activities and Revolutions, Etc.). Editor of "The Woman's
Page", Sara Keith gloated over scoops concerning Ann Green's book "What
Women Won't Wear," and Barbara Lavinghouze's new 18 course dinner in
one, invented appeasing Guy Young's appetite.
Big news was that the Doran, Doran, and Dailey circus was coming to
town, with those great stars, Rathgeber and Hunt, doing death-defying tra-
peze duets, and Alice Haughton, with the longest hair in the world! Also
Wild Man Linney; Island Dancer Lolita Provost; Chiquita Henry, eques-
trienne!
The paper announced the gala opening of John Clark's Fotographe
shoppe, and also a new movie at the Clubhouse (Rhodes and Cain, Pro-
prietors). "The Case of the Missing Toothbrush" starred George Valentine
Makibbin, Ann Sheridan Chipman, Eddie Taylor Corrigan, and Reesanne
Garbo Dwyer.
A clatter and a bang outside attracted Swink's attention. Going out, he
saw Willard Lucy and Jack Upton in "The Conquest". Swink climbed in. As
they rattled along he saw Joe Burgoon, humming happily while running the
elevator in The Waffle cafe owned by Barbara Stout and Maria Hernandez.
Nearby was Bobby Burkle's airplane factory. Eloise Ramey, his secretary,
gave orders to undersecretaries Eileen Malone and Marie Keegan. Smilin'
Jack Marsh zoomed over the field while Jack Haw, fellow test pilot, criti-
cized. A passenger plane was about to take off, Larry Holford pilot, Ralph
McClain co-pilot. Air hostesses Doris Currier and Muriel Evans were making
passengers comfortable. The passengers were the famous woman explorer,
Mary March; Albert Covington, commissary manager; Mathew and his
sister, Eileen, of Cryan, Cryan, and Company, handkerchief manufacturers;
Robert Hinman, retired business man; Polly Perkins, American Ambassador
to Chiriqui.
The plane took off, so Swink and the Conquest did, too.








The Land of Tomorrow

A fire engine came screaming down the road. Driving it wildly was
Robert Wertz. At last firemen Carlyle Harvey, Donald Grimm, Billy Mon-
santo, Buster Hayden, John Lewis, Bill Reedy, and Billy Carmichael were
going to a fire. The Conquest puttered after the engine. The Tivoli Hotel
was flaming with celebrities. The notables tumbled out: Marea Bordt, Eileen
Fitzpatrick, Dolores Kelley, Ruth Johnston, Margaret Whelan, Grace Schack,
Betty Sutherland, Ann Warner, and Ruth Weiss. Inside the blazing building
were three damsels in distress, Virginia Stewart, Margaret Kunkel, and
Jeanne McLavy, the last named of whom refusing to come out for fear of
seeing some reminder of The Swink, 1940. Heroic passersby Richard Erbe
and Bill Thomas covered themselves with ashes rescuing Virginia and Mar-
garet. An ambulance ambled hopefully up, driven by Bill Hyde. Dr. Harry
Hatch fell out with his nurses, Elva Reed, Mary Jane Phillips, and Ana
Valdes. Disappointed at finding no one hurt, they left for more promising
grounds.
Later that day (how the Swink did get about!) he saw Margaret Sulli-
van, Rosa Putchkoff, and Nettie Andrews, sketching mules at Marie Sch-
midt's blooded stock ranch.
At Gorgona, Jane Stevens was swimming around looking for the bathing
suit she had lost during a long ago Easter sojourn. John Anderson and Do-
lores Welch were waging a silent debate under a palm tree.
In a modernistic tea room in Ancon, Swink saw Grace McCaslin and
Joan Ridge pouring tea. Anita Stilson, manager, bustled about while cus-
tomer Richard Vallarino shouted for service, which Kitty Arosemena brought.
Athletes Porter Crawford and Lefty McGlade guzzled tea with Agnes Atkin-
son. Dorothy Kalar bumped into Jane Tompkins and SLOP'd a cup of boil-
ing water over Howard Moore. Roland Stemmer slithered about strumming
his balalaika while appreciative listeners Robert Mason and Don Marshall
tossed pennies. Barbara Miller sat in a corner, writing and tearing her hair.
Near by, applying "jungle red" to her nails, was Nancy Norton. John Frensley
drove by in a blue car, vintage 1940, taking Helen Hagen to her beauty shop.
Her partners, Katherine McMurray and Peggy Brugge, had discovered a
new combination face cream which would reduce, remove freckles, and
leave a tan all at once. Outside, Robert Wainio urged neglected husbands
to rise above this crisis. Heeding the call, Otis Myers, Neal Small, Vernon
Dettor, and Norman Matlowsky dashed into the shop and dragged their
wives home. Annette Evers and Beverly Betts wept as their customers were
hauled away.
To escape the rush, Swink wandered into Frey's Elite Men's Store. Robert
Thomas was advocating more color in men's clothes. Frances Woodman and
Evelyn Velarde, salesgirls, were selling Arlo Westbrook a pink necktie. Bill
Gaines and Joe Haggerty dropped in between acts of a new play, "You're
Excused". successor to "Pardon Us."
In front of B. H. S. Swink saw a School-Clubhouse bus. It was three, and
Bill Monzon, William Howard, Tom Etchberger, James Stallings, and Aubrey
Lewis were patiently awaiting their journey down the Prado. Old habit. For
years they had been doing it.
Staggering around the track, Swink bumped into Champ Eddie Moore,
and Abel Chevalier. Julius Cheney was timing, while Jack Sutherland kib-
itzed. In the gym Gloria Shelton was instructing Cecilia Simms and Fran-
cisca Talavera in the noble art of fencing.
"Did you really see these things?" we demanded.
"Well," he replied, "No, I didn't. But, you see I went to school with
Vincent Bradley!"

PARRAKEET The clickety-clack of typewriters coming from the journalism room spoke for itself; the Parrakeet was going to press. Soon students would be scanning the front page for news of the latest dance turning to the SpOrts page to find their names in the list of all-stars, stopping to chuckle with Peek and Boo Some read some laughed, some put serious thought to the editorial column-and the Parra keet had served its purpose. It had informed and amused its readers. Published by the journalism class for the Student Association, it was staffed by seniors. The paper was almost entirely the product of stu dent effort, for it was made up, edited and administered by a Student staff. In order to give each student a chance at one or another of the editorial positions, provision was made for frequent changes in staff. Those who showed ability were often appointed for a second or third term. But only a portion of the work was done there in the makeup de partments. Editorial writers criti cized and praised in the Billboard" and the editorial columns. Report ers shouldered the job of inter preting school life in front page and sPOrts column. Feature writers put life and humor into Peek and Boo Some never became editors, but it was their work that the school read and enjoyed But editor or proofreader, every body h a d a busy good time when the P a rrakeet was going to press!

In the final game H orter s Indi ans defe ared Michaelson s Cubs 10-5 and captured th e school championship. The best players of the year, however were not all to be found or: either the Indi ans or Cubs In the opinion of rhe players, the best b a ttery combination was Burgoon and M cG l ade; first Anderson ; second Bud Huldtqui st; third J ack Michaelson; short Heno" Horter; left field Howard Mo ore; center, George Skinner; right, John Linney. This nine represented B a lboa at the a nnu a l Balboa-Cristobal fracas on the Gold Coast. By rhe bare margin of 1-0 Balboa eked our a victory. This was accomplished by mean s of Burgoon's four-hit hurlin g and John Linney's screaming triple in th e fourth For four years B a bb y Joe Burgoon had hoped and waired for th e chance to pitch a n all-star game.

This year s tennis doubles were exciting in part because a group o f teachers entered the br acket. The teacher c o mbines were Hosl erHachett and Esser-Lee The Stem mer-Thomas duo defeated th e Barker-Presley combine CO t a k e the doubles crown. WATER POL O The water pol o competition opened this year with a schedu l e o f interclass meets. John Fo ley, Bill Brown Raymo n d Miden ce Jack Marsh Arlo West brook and Allan Monsanco represented the sen iors bur they were ab l e co offer litrJe resistance co t h e waterbug juniors.

In their first all-scar game with Criscoba l Midence and Foley were s ele cted co represent Ba l boa in the key positions of goa l ie and center. The game opened with Criscobal f a vored bur Bal boa held t h em sco reless the first half.

BASKETBALL A s the Swink went to press, Eddie M oo re's Buckeyes were f avored to win the 1939'40 basketb all season. Five teams entered th e le ague, R afae l Re yes' Pir a tes H owa rd M oore s Tro jans Eddie Moore's Buckeyes and Jackie Michael so n's Celtics.

Grieser w h en questioned about this year's swimming stars With such famous stars as Allan Ford Billy Zemer a nd Crede Calh o un it is no wonder he was ab l e to make such a statement. This yea r s team boasted twelve seniors Mike Dailey, John Foley, Jack Sutherland, Dick Litde, Bill Brown Jack Marsh Raymond Midence, Frank Aloy, Arlo Westbrook, Wally Ru sso n and others The seni ors first e n counter was with the junior-sophomore combi nation in which they l ost a lthough John Foley did his best to hold the juniors down with the number of points he scored in diving. Alan Ford is listed in the Inter collegiate and Interscholastic Swim ming Guide of 1940 as one of the seven outs tandin g swimmers in the United States. Alan has often re ceived invitations to varioLls meets in South America, where he has distinguished himself more than once.

The Swink Views That inquisitive little fellow, the Swink, still pokes his nose into what doesn' t concern him. Listen while we relate his latest adventure in the land of tomorrow! One day he found himse lf strollin g along the edge of the third set of locks. The "Califphony", a training' ship, was in transit. Strutting at the rail for the benefit of Alic e Marine and Barbara Hayden were cadets Hugh Norri s and Jack Pryor. Also aboard was John Schnake, Secretary of the N avy, on an inspection and fi shing trip. The ship docked besid e Allan Monsanto' s Taboga Steamship, interrupting Captain Bud Barlow, who was swabbing t h e bridge. Swink trailed after the cadets to a dime-a-dance joint owned by Ela Anderson and Vernon S ee ley. Bouncers Wally Russon, Joe Young, and J ohnny Davis were doing a thriving business. Dick Little' s swinkaroos produced rhythm while Fifi (Marybelle) Perkins wail e d "SJ.ide Mongoose ." Swink left, then, and wandered into the Palacio, where he found Edgar Quintero, the new p reSident, talking with Bo ss Tapia, Ri ght-hand-man Luciano Sanchez and Left-hand-man Raymond Midence. The Presidencia was upset b y rumors of a r evolution led by oPposing party members, Benedetti, Chevalier, and the Talavera brothers. Also present was John Kil ey, Communist party leader, who protested G eorge Maduro's monopoly of the Maduro stores. BilJ Brow n reporter, and photographer Arthur Wilcox were sneaking around. The meeting over S wink follow e d the latte r pair to the newspaper office of "The Spade" ( We Di g Up the Dirt), owned by Marilynn Dav. id so n Latest headlines stated that John Fole y and Bill Sherloc k were up before Xen H osler, chairman of the C.O.I.O.U.A.A.R.E. (Committee of Investigation of Un american Activitie s and Revolutions, Etc.). Editor of "The Woman' s Page Sara K eith gloated over scoo ps concerning Ann Green' s book "What Women Won' t Wear," and Barbara Lavinghouze's new 18 course dinner in one, invented appeasing Guy Young's appetite. Bi g news was that the Dora n Doran, and D ailey circus was coming to town, with those g reat star s, Rathgebe r and Hunt, doing death-defying trapeze duets, and Alice H a u ghton, with the longest hair in the world! Also Wild Man Linney; I s l and Dancer Lolita Provost; Chiquita Henry, equestr.ienne! The paper announce d the gala opening of J ohn Clark's Fotographe shoppe, and a l so a new m ov i e at the Clubhouse (Rhodes and Cain, Proprietors). "The Case of the Mi ssing Toothbrush" starred G eo r ge Valentine Makibbin, Ann Sheridan Chipman, Eddi e Taylor Corrigan, and Reesanne Garbo D wyer A clatter and a bang outside attracted S wink's attention. Going out, he saw Willard Lucy and Jack Upton in "The Conquest". Swink climbed in. As the y rattled along he saw J oe Burgoon, humming happily while running the elevator in The Waffle cafe owned by Barbara Stout and Maria Hernandez. N earby was B obby Burkle's airplane factory. Eloi se Ramey, his secretary, g ave orders to undersecretaries Eileen Malone and Marie Keegan. Smilin' Jack Marsh zoomed over the field while Jack Haw, fellow test pilot, criticized A passenger p lane was about to take off. Larry Holford pilot, Ralph McClain co-pilot.

The plane took off so S win k and the Conquest did, too.

The Land of Tomorrow A fire eng,ine came screaming down the road. Driving it wildly was Robert Wertz. At last firemen Carlyle H arvey, Donald Grimm. Billy Monsanto, Buster Hayden. John Lewis, Bill Reedy. and Billy Carmichael were gOing to a fire. The Conquest puttered after the engine. The Tivoli Hotel was flaming with celebrities. The notables tumbled out: Marea Bordt, Eileen Fitzpatrick, Dolores Kelley. Ruth Johnston. Margaret Whelan, Grace Schack, Betty Sutherland, Ann Warner. and Ruth Weiss. Inside the blazing building were three damsels in distress, Virginia Stewart, Margaret Kunkel, and Jeanne McLavy. the last named of whom refusing to come out for fear of see ing some reminder of The Swink. 1940. Heroic passers by Richard Erbe and Bill Thomas covered themselves with ashes rescuing Virginia and Margaret. An ambulance ambled hopefully UP. driven by Bill Hyde. Dr. Harry Hatch fell out with his nurses, Elva Reed. Mary Jane Phillips, and Ana Valdes. Disappointed at finding no one hurt, they left for more promiSing grounds. Later that day (how the Swink did get about!) he saw Margaret Sullivan. Rosa Putchkoff, and Nettie Andrews, sketching mules at Marie Schmidt's blooded stock ranch. At Gorgona, Jane Stevens was swimming around looking for the bathing suit she had lost dur.ing a lon g ago Easter sojourn. John Anderson and Dolores Welch were waging a silent debate under a palm tree. In a modernistic tea room in Ancon. Swink saw Grace McCaslin and Joan Ridge pouring tea. Anita Stilson. manager, bustled about while customer Richard Vallarino shouted for service which Kitty Arosemena brought. Athletes Porter Crawford and Lefty McGlade guzzled tea with Agnes Atkinson. Dorothy Kalar bumped into Jane Tompkins and SLOP d a cup of boiling water over Howard Moore. Roland Stemmer slithered about strumming his balalaika while appreciative listeners Robert Mason and Don Marshall tossed pennies. Barbara Miller sat in a corner. writing and tearing her hair. Near by applying "jungle red" to her na.iJs. was Nancy Norton. John Frensley drove by in a blue car. vintage 1940. taking Helen Hagen to her beauty shop. Her partners, Katherine McMurray and Peggy Brugg'e, had discovered a new combination face cream which would reduce. remove freckles. and leave a tan all at once. Outside. Robert Wainio urged neglected husbands to rise above this crisis. Heeding the call. Otis Myers Neal Small. Vernon Dettor. and Norman Matlowsky dashed into the shop and dragged their wives home. Annette Evers and Beverly Betts wept as their customers were hauled away. To escape the rush, Swink wandered into Frey's Elite Men's Store. Robert Thomas was advocating more color in men's clothes. Frances Woodman and Evelyn Velarde, salesgirls, were selling Arlo Westbrook a pink necktie. Bill Gaines and Joe Haggerty dropped in between acts of a new play, You 're Excused ". successor to "Pardon U s." In front of B. H. S. Swink saw a School-Clubhouse bus. It was three, and Bill Monzon, William Howard, Tom Etchberger, James Stallings, and Aubrey Lew.is were patiently awaiting their journey down the Prado. Old habit. For years they had been doing it. Staggering around the track, Swink bumped into Champ Eddie Moore, and Abel Chevalier. Julius Cheney was timing, while Jack Sutherland kibitzed. In the gym Glor,ia Shelton was instructing Cecilia Simms and Francisca Talavera in the noble art of fencing. "Did you really see these things?" we demanded. "We ll ." he replied, "No, I didn't. But. you see I went to schOOl with Vincent Bradley!
