SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
I gazed, fascinated, into the large crystal ball before me. Its clear depths revealed
1931-when we were lowly freshmen! How short a time it seems! Within the ball
was a scene that made me chuckle. Our freshman meetings-the girls and boys meeting
in separate rooms, with their respective advisers, Miss \\'h:aly and Mr. G. R. Lee. The
class officers! Walter Judson, president of the boys; James Morales, vice-president; Robert
Dwelle, secretary; and George Walker, treasurer. To lead the girls, Edith Ro,,e %\as
elected president; Mildred \\'alters, vice-president; Teresa Michelsen, secr-tary. and
Julie Asparren, treasurer.
The scene shifted. I looked closer. Ah, yes! It was the freshman party at the Y. \V.
C. A. It was not until this event that the upper-classmen were aware of the fact that %e,
too, were students in Balboa High School. We were proud to be the first freshman class
to have nerve, and money enough to give a party. The girls-not initiated into society--
wore their best Sunday dresses. In order not to be out-done, each boy wore his best pair
of LONG trousers! There was no question about it- the party was a success. Bunco %%as
played until ten o'clock, and refreshments then aere served. Horrified by tht late hour of
eleven- -the little freshmen hurried home.
From then on we were treated with respect. To think that such little bits of humanity.
as we were regarded, had dared to have a party and stay up until almost midnight. com-
manded the attention of even the seniors.
After a quiet vacation, the class of '34 met in Mr. Carson's room to choose officers
Again Walter Judson was elected president. Robert D).elle was promoted to the chair of
vice-president. Fd Lawson was chosen secretary and Margaret Woodland, treasurer.
There were one hundred fifteen sophomores no. diordtirg the halls, and %% hat sopho-
mores! We were dignified enough to be envied by the freshmen, and lowly enough to he
scorned by the seniors.
This year marked the awakening of the "Sleeping Beauties." Committees ter. elected
for the social affairs and the class was launched on its second year.
Nobody took us seriously and anything that we did provided comedy for the rest
of the school. The most important events of the year were the collecting of class dues, or
the attempt to collect them, and the sophomore dance.
Class meetings galore were held, and nothing was accomplished, but it was a fin:- time
to sleep. What consolation! It is recalled that at one meeting, President Jud-,on timidly
Z ON I A N
introduced the selection of class colors. This brought about a stir of excitement and the
voting began. An argument arose as to whether green and white, or blue and white, should
be the appropriate colors. Unable to come to an agreement, a "dark horse" was entered.
Two girls in the front row were enchanted by the color of President Judson's tie; conse-
quently, the colors were at last chosen. Orange and White!
Amidst sleeping and arguing, the rest of the year slipped 1by. and we found ourselves
once more promoted. 'Twas great to be a junior!
Once again we trooped back to school; and we were received with the exclamation,
"Mr. Gronde is our class adviser!"
It was during this year that w.e blossomed forth. We started it off with "the shot
heard 'round the school."
Again the question of elections arose, and this time Tom Kromer was proclaimed
president. Bob D.velle retained his position of vic:-pl:.-ideint: Billy Westman was made
secretary; and Peter Johnson, treasurer.
From the bte[inning, things kept right on Ii.ipp'nin, A social committee was elected
and under its supervision the "Derby" and the never-to-be-forgotten "German" were
"Tex" Gronde brought many ideas from his state, which were carried out by the class
of '34, to his immense satisfaction. One of the plans put forth was that of having class
teams arrayed in uniforms of class colors. The season started off with orange shorts and
white shirts. We were the only class to have teams fully uniformed.
The girls had a great deal to do with the successful standing of our class. Not only
did they excel in all sports, but they succeeded in wresting the scholarship cup from the
class of '33.
Many important events were successfully established: competition bet.veen upper
classes in the ticket sales for plays, Mr. Gronde's homeroom plan, his police force based
on the plans of the Wecheck Club.
The crowning feature of a very successful year was the Junior-Senior Banquet. The
menu, consisting of leather meat, tough potatoes, chocolate desert, and poinciana bud
salad, agreed with each and every one. It was at this honorable feast that the future base-
ball pitchers did their practising an open mouth was a sufficient target for an almond.
rose bud, and numerous other articles. Another chapter in our book of schooldays com-
At last we were seniors! With a sigh, the old timers, who had spent years and years
in getting to the top, put down their burdens and took a rest. During one of these periods,
Bob Dwelle was chosen to lead the class through its trials and tribulations. Frank Fitz-
patrick was unanimously elected vice-president; Teresa Michealsen, secretary; and Peter
Elections for the editor of our annual and paper were also held during the first weeks
of relaxation. Louis Everson, that tired looking student one saw begging his fellow class-
mates for pictures, was chosen editor of the Zonian: Margaret Alley,
that sturdy little piece of girlish sweetness, was proclaimed editor of the Parrakeet. It isn't
the paper she's worried about, it's the fear that somebody will steal her little sign, "Editor-
The worries of the class in its infancy, 1933, were too much for Mr. Gronde, so he
returned to his native state in order to recuperate. The responsibility of the burden fell
upon the broad shoulders of Mr. C. B. Hodges.
Scenes were shifting so rapidly that the crystal ball grew almost hazy. The Junior-
Senior Dance at the Yacht Club--the Senior Luncheon--the Senior Play, "Mrs. Bump-
stead Leigh." The latter provoked a little mirth. \Vhat would have happened hadn't there
been a prompter! More dances and social events! Seniors sporting pictures around early
in February! New additions to our faculty-picnics-plans for graduation-another
fight over caps and gowns-seniors receive graduation announcements-long faces fellow.
It is realized that no longer are we to adorn the halls of B. H. S. The Junior-Senior Banquet
marks the beginning of the end, with Baccalaureate close on its heels; and finally, June
15-Commencement! The crystal ball is misty. Alas! How sad it seems. Dear old Balboa
Hi. Good-bye! Good-bye!
If seniors in their learned ways
Reflect upon the bygone days,
They will find if they explore
Their sayings have been said before.
Their prankish deeds so up-to-date,
Their grandfathers planned upon a slate.
And Shakespeare made a big ado
About the things they think are new.
Their numerous wisdom recipes
Were told before by Socrates.
Their style and dress and other such
Have been outranked by old King Tut.
Rules that guide the high and low
Were put in vogue by Cicero.
It's true there's nothing anymore
That hasn't been said or done before.
We, the senior class of 1934, being as sane of mind as we can hope to be on the
completion of a four year sentence, do grant, bequeath, and convey our property as follow s:

Z ON I A N
I SO.METI.XIES TELL LIES
The door opened and my wife entered all excited, "Louis Everson," she said breath-
lessly, "has phoned from the bank that our account is overdrawn and that he has stopped
payment on all our checks. I told him that Miriam Whitsett was on her way to the bank to
cash a check that I had just given her for painting my portrait and that the check just
must be cashed. Then he was so hateful and gruff that-" And she started to cry.
I had been writing steadily all morning, trying to get my book ready for publication
and this was the third interruption. I replied sharply, "Well, my dear, Everson is treasurer
of the bank because he tends to business and you should not expect the bank to be exactly
a social club. It is really up to you to keep your account balanced and when you
do not, you can expect-" But I got no further.
She retorted quickly, "Yes, and it is up to you then to furnish enough money so there
will always be that balance after the bills are paid." Then she went out closing the door
in a manner very jarring to my nerves.
I was sorry that I had not asked how much our account was overdrawn, but what was
the use? I took out my wallet and counted exactly $20.98; this would just have to do us
until my book was published. I turned again to my typewriter and had just written a few
lines when my wife reappeared. She tossed the morning's paper into my lap saying, "Here
is something I have been looking forward to for months."
I picked up the paper and read on the front page in big headlines, Rebecca Williams
and Sam Burks star in hit of Broadway, "FOIBLES AND FANCIES OF 1942." "Gosh."
I groaned, "I wanted to see that show myself, but honest honey, I don't see-" But I
never finished as my wife had again left the room shutting the door, as before, in a most
I was down in the dumps. Here it was 1942; I was four years out of college, and what
had I accomplished; every month the money went out faster than I could bring it in. I
was hot and tired. The telephone was ringing and drowsily I got up to answer it. Ed
Lawson, chief pilot for the United Fly Wings Corporation of America, was on the line shout-
ing for help. In an hour he was to hop off on a goodwill tour of the South American coun-
tries and Mary MacGillivary was to have gone along to write up the trip. However, at
the very last minute, she had received a promising offer from the Westinghouse people as
designer and stylist in connection with their electrical reducing appliances and she had, of
course, accepted. Now, Ed was asking if I would consider the position with a salary and
all expenses paid. I told him how hard I was working trying to finish my book; he argued
that a change was just what I needed, as I was getting stale; and he mentioned that the
plane was going to stop at Panama. After that I needed no further inducement. Ever since
I had graduated from high school I had planned to go back sometime and visit the Canal
Zone and now was my chance. I told Ed I would be at the field inside of an hour.
From experience I knew better than to discuss the trip with my wife so I sat down and
wrote her a note, pinning my last $20.00 to it. I then called up the brokerage firm of Kromer
and Turner, and finally succeeded in getting Turner on the wire. I told him of the trip I
was taking and instructed him to sell my U. S. Steel common, at the market price, and to
turn the proceeds over to my wife. He remonstrated, saying U. S. Steel would double itself
in two months, but I was firm; he had been telling me that since November, 1929.
When I arrived the air field was crowded; one would think that Colonel Lindbergh
himself was taking off. As I paid the taxi driver out of my remaining 98 cents, I saw Vir-
ginia Foster, feature writer for the New York Times, coming towards me. I kne% the
reputation she had earned, in the field of journalism, for always getting what she went
after; so, I prepared to tell her my life's secrets. Then Lawson came running up saying that
David Oller, photographer for the Pathe News, wanted all who were going on the trip to
line up so he could take their picture. Finally Oller got us arranged to his satisfaction % ith

There was lots of excitement; everyone was talking at once. Marion Watson was trying
to get Ed. Lawson to endorse an ad for Yardley's Enrlish Lavender Complexion Soap.
Narcissa Reeder, senator for Ne% York State, who was larcl.y responsible for the good-
will trip, was tiilinL me about a political school which Georgia Reynolds and Dorothy
\lac'ssen had established in New York for the purpose of making good Republicans. She
was certain that this school would be instrumental in selecting our next president.
Joseph Orr was there proudly exhibiting a medal which he had just received for being
the World's Champion Pole Sitter. Jimmie Allit,. on official business in New York, was
atl i~ing everyone not to get married, s-:yinI that two could not live ascheapiy as one;
especially, if there was a French bazar handy. Sherman Squires, promoter of grey hound
racing in Firidi. was di-.pl, min.l on a leash a few of his blue ribbon hounds. Gecirila Sea-
burg, demonstrator for the Underwood Typewriter Company, was explaining how con-
veniently and satisfactorily a portable machine would work under all conditions. Betty
Golden, Commissioner of the Girl Scouts of Amer ica. handed me a bouquet of flowers and
.Margar't Alley'- latest book, entitled, "Husbands and Their Fallacies." Juan Vallarino,
Panamanian .1 ni.'ie-r to the United States, was shaking hands with everyone and sending
messages to his friends in Panama. Dick Stoudner, short stop for the Pittsburgh Pirates,
with his wife, Thelma Seeley, gave us a box of nicely .-ufitgraphed, baseballs to be dis-
tributed to the baseball fans on the Canal Zone; and even Tom Kromer had left Wall Street
long enough to see us off.
Just as the plane was ready to take off, Richard Potter came running up with Dr.
Renaud Leon. Potter was the general manager of the New York office of the Son's Life
Insurance Company and after he had talked to me for five minutes, 1 wondered why they
did not make him president. He so thoroughly convinced me that I owed it to
my wife to take out an insurance policy that I asked him why he did not
bring with him John Wainio, of the Wainiin Casket Company of America. I had
always thought that I would like to be buried in one of Wainio's Grecian Model Cask-
ets. I also felt that a few words of blessing from the Reverend Robert Daniels, world
renowned Evangelist, would not be amiss at such a time. Potter finally won his point and
in a jifty Dr. Leon had examined me and pronounced me sound phy.sic.-llv\ and I had in-
structed Kromer to pay my first yearly premium from the sale of U. S. Steel. Kromer
looked sour about this, but that was to be e.\xpctrdl: Wall Street "Bulls and Bears" have
no time for anylhin'- pcrl..iingn to security and protection.
Our first stop was Brownsville, Texas, and an immense crowd led by Congressman, the
Honorable Frank Fitzpatrick, was on hand to greet us. Fitz had earned a reputation for
being a silver tnn.'ui.d orator; and in his welcoming address he proceeded to give us an ex-
cellent demonstration of his abilities. However, I was in no mood to appreciate I nm' speeches
for, due to Lawson's unasked for exhibition of how a plane could ride up-side down and
play hide and seek with the clouds, my stomach had become misplaced. I watched my
chance and the first time Fitz turned his head the other way, I was off and down Main
Street. I walked along until I saw a sign reading "Ye Old Fashioned Tavern," which reminded
me of the tavern and pretty bar maids I had read about in Noye's "M1-rmdid Tavern". I
entered in good spirits, picked up the menu, and was surprised to read that Margaret
Reinig, Dorothy .-s-sr and Teresa Michaelsen were the proprietors. As soon as I made
myself known, it was like an old fashioned home-week; everyone was talking at once.
Mlargaret Reinig told me that the tavern was really only a tea room and they sold nothing
stronger than tea. I was disappointed and started to lecture her on fraud and for misleading
the public,but my stomach began to feel badly again so I begged for a cup of coffee instead.
Dorothy Messer suggested that I try "Elexitone," a new beverage just perfected and put
on the market by the noted chemist, Betty Bohan. The drink had the reputation for being
invigorating andl s-iniiil.tin_: and after I had drunk two glasses, I was a changed man. I
felt as if I were ,.alkin..' n the air. Teresa .Mich:ielsen, who had just returned from a business
trip to HolAfi ,lyood told me that Ed. Wood and Margaret Dryden were almost movie stars.
She said they were doubling for the real stars in all their dangerous s imming and stunt
acts. Alberta Lebrun and Mary Jane Sutherland were also in Hollywood where they were
the successful proprietors of a Beauty Salon; they had so perfected the art of Lrowing
hair on bald spots that they had customers from Europe and the far East. This reminded
me of Tarflinger's Shppe. and I told them how George, and James lMorales. with
Mildred Garlow as nurse, had a very successful chiropodist establishment in New York
City and were considered experts in the amputation of corns and bunions.
We were interrupted by the arrival of a party of noisy motorists, and the tea room was
soon in a turmoil with everyone greeting each other. It was the Sunshine Exploration
Company celebrating before they started on their trip to the Treasure Islands.
Robert Schelling, scientist, was in charge of the party, which included Hampton Tedder,
mining engineer: Robert Wempe, taxidermist; Laura organa, nurse and dietition; Carol
Sheep, astrologist; Ruth Books, author; and little Marie Gallivan, secretary. Marie stated
she only hoped she would find some treasure; if she did not, she supposed she would go
back and marry Roy Phillips, as he had made millions in the oil fields. Carol Sheep ga ve us
a lecture on the plndrts- she believed that due to atmospheric conditions at the Treasure
Islands, she would be able to find out why Venus and Neptune were situated so far apart in
the heavens. While they were arguing, Laura Morgan asked to have the radio turned on
as she wanted to hear Billv Sheehan, the popular "Lullabyist," whose golden voice, between
the hours of one and two, assisted mothers in prevailing upon their children to take at ter-
noon naps. After listening to Bill, we heard a very interesting lecture by Rita Strauss on
"How to Grow Old Gracefully." The radio announcer cut in once to say that Ed. Neville
and Beverly Caruthers were still leading in the marathon dancing contest. Howe\ er, it
was thought that the contest would soon be over as Neville's feet were dragging; and for
the past hour, Beverly had been holding him up.
Just as I was taking another drink of "Elexitone," my airplane companions arrixedi. led
by Billy French. Then there were some more greetings. Finally Billy suggested that %e
visit Eppley's and Johnson's Dude Ranch, which was about three miles out of town. We
all piled into Billy's driveless and gasless Radiomobile and were on our way. Bill said
that the car was run entirely by radio waves and that he had so many orders for the model
that his factories were working day and night.
The Dude Ranch was a sight worth seeing. On the long veranda which extended the
length of the ranchhouse was a line of rocking chairs with air-cushion seats. Johnso n said
that these chairs were installed for guests, who after horseback riding, were more or less
incapacitated. This improvement, it seems, had been suggested by Sue Feaster and her
husband who had spent their honeymoon at the ranch. Due to their horsemanship, they
were never able to find a seat soft enough. Eppley could talk about nothing but horses
Eppley and Johnson both begged 1hat when we arrived in Panama we would get in touch
with Harry Stevenson and John Lloyd, owners of the Juan Franco race track.
Saphir thought we should get back to our ship as most of our journey was beih-re
us, so we all said "goodbye" and were on our way. I finally prevailed upon Lawson to let
Prendergast pilot the plane to Panama; for somehow or other I could not get my ife out
my mind and this, together with Lawson's driving, made me somewhat fidgety. At the
plane we met Edith Rowe with Count Plopalot whom she introduced as her fiance. Edith
said she was teaching school in Dallas and just had to come over and say "hello" and "bon
voyage." Then we were off for Panama.
The first person to shake hands with us at the landing field was the Honorable Robert
Hull, American Minister to Panama. Hull was known in the diplomatic world as the Latin-
American Pacifist, having earned this title by the unique manner in which he had settled
numerous disputes. With him were numerous Panamanian officials and Hilda Quintero.
official translator. Hilda and I shook hands and she said something two minutes long to
me in Spanish. All I could remember of my Spanish was "Buenodias sefiorita," which I said
about five times in succession. When Hilda laughed, I hastily said, "Si, si," and she
replied, "Mei.r, mejor." Virginia Booth, nee Virginia DeYoung, came up with Iimmy
and gave me a handful of cables. I looked them over hurriedly, feeling sure there %\ would be
at least one from my wife, but there wasn't; and I was disappointed and upset. Gee. what
if Turner had not sold the stock and she had no money? I felt that I must hear from her
immediately. Through the courtesy of Jimmy, I sent her a message direct from the field
and asked for an immediate reply.
Chief Justus Klemmer, with his squad of secret service men, made a passage way for
us through the crowd to a sightseeing bus owned by Woodrow de Castro. Woodrow told us
that since the road across the Isthmus had been constructed his Blue Eagle Line had a
monopoly on the tourist trade. It was an elaborate bus with electrical, red plush rocking
chairs and pink, velvet shades which could be drawn shut by a couple desiring privacy.
Our first stop was "The Presidencia" where we were met by Victor de la Guardia, Panama's
.Mlinister of Foreign Affairs, who introduced us to the President and showed us around the
\Ve then rode out to Old Panama to see Panama's most up-to-date hotel. It was owned
by Rodrigo Arosemena with Amalia Mendez as hostess. The name of the hotel was "TLe
Pirates Retreat". As we were leaving, we met Olive Koperski in the lobby; she was
enroute to join her husband, manager of the Chille Copper Comlpa. n in Peru. Olive told
us confidentially, that judging by the prices charged at the hotel, she believed that RI lri' :
and Amalia were direct descendants of pirate Morgan himself.
W\ next visited Panama's new Municipal City Hall, a magnificent concrete building
facing Panama Bay. At the entrance of the building was a life-like statue of General Vasco
de Balboa with the word "welcome" iengranedl in large letters on the base. The Honorable
Hull told us that the statue was the work of Jos6 Paredes, Panama's clever sculptor and
that the Municipal huildlile was designed by Robert Hazeldine, prosperous architect with
offices in Panama and South American countries. It had been erected by the contractors,
Ledfors and .\Iac(Gregor, whose motto was "We do good work as we never bite off more
than we can chew."
At the right, as you entered, was an information desk with Ester Castel in charge.
Ester was busy giving tourist information so she could talk to us only a few minutes.
She told us that a few doors down we would find the office of Bertha Marine, who was a
public stenographer: and then I had an idea. I wanted to write to my wife, but my
letters were always so formal and business-like that I was afraid I would only make matters
worse. I knew that Bertha could write just the kind of beseeching and endearing letter
my wife would enjoy, and down the hall I went to see her. Something must be the matter,
for surely by this time I should have had a cable from home.
On the second floor of the building were the offices of Esther .lidauri,. Director of
Education. She had such splendid ideas for improving the schools of Panama and ended
every other sentence with the national cry, "If I only had more money to work with."
On the same floor was the health office where Gladys Salterio was empinlyvc as public
nurse and, as I had recalled a little more of my Spanish by now, I wa s .,ii t,' say more
than "Buenos dias" to G-ldv .%. An gela Bray was in charge of the Employment Bureau and
was having all sorts of dIliult:ie.le
We took the elevator to the third floor where Josephine Dennis and Billee Westman
owned a Fashion Salon. Josephine Dennis was the designicr for the establishment while
Billie Westman acted as a model, displavini; the creations. I sat down on one of the easy
chairs and while watching Billie Westman display the correct vcenint dress for milady,
I forgot my troubles for a few minutes.
An art gallery, library and museum occupied the entire fourth floor; and we were told
that Raymond Bennett, who was travclline for the National Geographic Society.
was responsible for the museum. He had given many of the animals and thousands
of dollars to this project.
As our time was limited, we hurried on to the Canal Zone. On our way to call on the
Governor, we stopped at Gorgas Hospital as we heard that G. O. Lee was now chief
bacteriologist there. We found M1r. Lee with his snakes and toads on the second floor.
I asked about Mr. Hatchett, the mathematics instructor, who was never too busy to give
a student extra help; and Mr. Lee said we would find him at the junior college where he
was now an instructor. Mr. Lee fold us that Mr. Hatchett was still unable to catch a soft
ball, but that he had just discovered the reason why.
I had not heard from my wife yet and I was irritable. When Hull suggested that we
drive around to the front of the Administration building which meant we would have to
climb that long flight of steps, I protested loudly; afterwards I was sorry I was so hasty.
At regular intervals terraces had been cut in the hill on each side of the long steps leadinL
to the building. On the terraces were chaise lounges and tables over which were placed
large umbrellas for shade. Under the umbrellas were electric fans and attached to the arm
of each chair was a miniature ice cooler. Beds of beautiful and brightly colored flowers
were scattered here and there in the most artistic fashion. The idea of having these com-
fortable and inviting resting places for the employees of the administration builline. who
had to climb the long flight of steps each day, originated with M!,jrie Hallet, Directress
of the Bureau of Clubs and Playgrounds. The credit for designing and putting the idea
into effect went to Robert Dwelle, landscape gardener, who had recently returned from
When we arrived at the Balboa High School, Mr. Hodges, the new principal, was out
to greet us. He told us of the many new additions to the school and boasted proudly of its
newest invention. It was a machine called the "995" and was invented by Professor Walter
Crouch. Mr. Hodges explained its mechanism: a teacher upon sending a student from the
room would write on an electric pad attached to one of these machines, the student's name
and a brief history of his misbehavior; this information would immediately show up on
the machine in Mr. Hodges' office, preparing him for the student when he arrived. Gee,
I thought, what an efficient device to be invented by Crouch, who, when a senior led the
class in collecting "995's." Mr. Hodges showed us an article in the morning's paper which
stated that such clever women lecturers as Peggy Nevile and Bona Unga were now cam-
paigning in the States in behalf of the Republicans. He was greatly depressed as he feared
our next President would be a Republican, and then the country .,IIwuid surely go to ruin.
I turned to the society page thinking I might find something of interest to my wife and
read a detailed account of the wedding of Dorothy Smith to a prominent army officer. A
little further down, I also saw an article concerning Margaret Wiggins, chief of the New
York Branch of the Salvation Army, who was expected to visit the Isthmus shortly.
I was getting a crook in my neck watching for a messenger from the cable office.
I was so worried I almost wished I had not made the trip. At the top of the high school
we got into small Panama Railroad electric cars which took us over a bridge connue-ting the
high school with Balboa University. Mr. Spalding did not seem to have chiancgdl much,
altho he had gotten somewhat stouter and had lost some of his curly black hair. We
congratulated him upon his success with the University, which now ranked as high as any in
the United States, and also upon his appointment as its first President. He was proud of
the school and its graduates and mentioned a few who had won distinction: Thelma Bott,
who was now teaching a new branch of study, "Culture and Good Manners" in New York
University; Julie Asparren, an instructor in women's physical education in China; Mar-
garet Bradley, a scenario writer in Hollywood; Tharon Haldeman,who was now com petting
for the International Golf Championship in Europe; Laura Neal,who was writing tor the
local newspaper, giving advice on "Family Relationships and Marital Differences;" and
Julieta Patterson, who had won the Nobel Prize this year for inventing a device which
allowed one to hear himself talk or even sleep while his neighbors played their radios.
He also showed us a book of poems written by Bertha Greggi entitled "\\'ith Age comes
Wisdom", and I told him I was just finding that out.
He asked about Annie Pearre; and I told him just before I left New York I attended
a piano concert given for her by the society leaders, Ruth Dunham and Genevieve Rose.
Miss Jessup, Dean of Women at Radlil ffe College, attended the concert; and I ai.- met
and talked with Jessie Young, now a fashionable interior decorator. ~\i. Sp:ildin: asked
us if we had visited Paul Kunkle who recently had purchased the Lewis Periodical Shp?
He said Paul was a hard boiled business man. Spalding laughed as he told us that one day not
long ago when he was to pay for some magazines he wished to purchase, he found he had
left his wallet at home; Kunkel had refused to trust him saying his terms were strictly cash
and he could not make an exception.
Mr. Spalding asked us-but just then I saw a messenger coming from the Cable
Company and I rushed to meet him. I tore open the cable and read aloud: "Your wife has
employed me as her lawyer to file suit for divorce; favorable verdict assured; prepare to
pay alimony"-signed Boyd Branson.
When I could get my breath, I shouted wildly, "What is the quickest way I can get back
to New York?"
Lawson said, "Whai is the matter, you can always get another wife; you have said
so yourself many times; you just can't walk out on us like this."
I tried to explain to him that this was different; my wife was divorcing me; that
Branson never lost a case; that Ann Brown was the judge of the court in which my case
would he tried; and she was known as a man hater; that in New York one went to
jail when he did not pay his alimony; but Ed. would not listen. He grabbed me but I
pushed him aside Just then I heard a scream and awoke to find my wife leaning up against
the book-case cr.in;. "You hit me," she moaned. "I am going to get a divorce."
What a relief! I laughed as I told her, "Honey, I was dreaming that someone was
trying to keep me away from you."
But she refused to listen, saving "I was only trying to wake you to say that you had
forgotten our wedding anniversary- I am going home to mother's."
"Listen! listen!" I yelled,as I took the $20.00 out of my wallet, but what was the use?
For the third time that day she had walked out while I was Calklin-. closing the door after
her in a manner most jarring to my nerves.

Smiles there are,
True! so many kinds of smiles--
Believe it or not
It's a fact-
Smiles can talk.
There is the smile of satisfaction,
And the smile of uInl. r..nlinl
And the deep, grim smile ot vengeance,
I'm not trifling--
Smiles can talk.
Lovers' stolen glances
Smiles of love and dreams and hopes.
Dying men have smiled contentedly-
Their full share have they done on earth, so-
Smiling they depart.
I am positive they talk!
Blessed be thy name-oh God!
For i: in. to us on earth,
These yving, talking things

THE CLASS OF '35
The year of 1934 has been a very successful year for the junior class. Our activities
included three dances, a luncheon, food sale, class play and banquet.
At the first class meeting Peter Corrigan was elected president; James Johnson, \ice-
president: Jean'Steel, secretary, and Dale Boggs, treasurer. Mr. G. R. Lee was class
adviser--later to be followed by Mr. Pease who helped our class a great deal and to whom
great praise is due.
The first social event of the year was the Junior-Senior dance held at the Yacht Club.
The Corozal orchestra furnished the music for the occasion, which was proclaimed a huge
Next was the Junior Prom which was said to be the best dance of the year. This
dance also was held at the Yacht Club which was attractively decorated in a unique
manner. The prizes, which were donated by the outstanding stores in Panama. added
much to the affair.
The remaining social affairs included a barn dance, class play, and the annual Junior-
Aside from these activities, the juniors ranked second in the school athletics. The
boys came in second in soccer; and the girls, second in volleyball. Although both lost first
place, the teams put up a good hard fight. Claudis Howell and Jack Sutherland were chosen
as representatives for the Athletic Council and proved worthy of their posts.
Throughout the year the juniors strove hard to win the scholarship cup. Twice the
junior boys from Mr. Joy's room won this honor.

THE CLASS OF '36
September 22, 1932 some 132 pupils registered in Balboa High School as Ireshmen.
That was the big day of our lives, as the boys with their bald heads and the girls v. ith their
pigtails wandered bewilderedly through the halls.
Our class was divided into two sections, one for boys and one for girls. Each
division elected its own officers.
The boys elected Jack Kromer, president; Walter Friday, vice-president; Tom Huff,
secretary; and Donald Fero, treasurer.
The girls chose Jean Mitchell, president; Peggy Horter, vice-president; Lois Nash,
secretary; and Margaret Haw, treasurer.
During the first year the class was hazed. We attempted to give a party, and caused
much trouble. In fact, it was a most unusual FREHSMAN class. By June, it had learned
what high school life was, and had decided that it was most exciting and enjoyable.
Oh-here is that extraordinary class again! Just as extraordinary as ever. Almost
the same group with just a few losses and some additions. We were getting used to each
other, getting to know which of us were the real students, which the musicians, and which
the athletes. We soon found that we could be represented in every school activity. This vear
we gave a beach party and a sophomore.get-together. Both parties were a success. fah!
Another unusual feat by an unusual class.
The success of our class as sophomores was due greatly to Mr. George 0. Lee, our
Jack Kromer was re-elected president; George Fitzgerald, Lois Nash, and Ruth
Horter, were elected to be vice-president, secretary and treasurer respectively. A dem-
ocratic form of government was organized. A senate committee was set up which %\as
composed of officers and ex-officers of the class. The committee was composed of the
following students: Jack Kromer, George Fitzgerald, Lois Nash, Ruth Horter. Clelia
Calhoun, Sidney Randolph, Thomas Huff, and our class athletic officer, Arthur Michaelson.
In the world of sports, the boys, in 1933, captured first place in baseball; second, in
basketball; third, in track and lost in soccer. This year the boys carried away the soccer
crown, and won third position in track and baseball. Eight boys made five of the varsity
sports in their first year, and fifteen boys made three of these sports in their second year.

THE CLASS OF '37
The class of '37 started its career in Balboa High School by taking the Scholarship Cup
for the first six weeks period.
For the first time only one set of officers was elected. Charles Gornell was elected
president; Ruth Richmond, vice-president; Lilia Booth, secretary; and Leo Ferguson,
treasurer. With these officers and Mr. Hatchett, class adviser, the FRESHMEN have
passed through a successful year. A number of athletic tickets were sold to the class
due to the efforts of Bob Matheney and Lily Pescod, the athletic representatives.
It was decided at one of the class meet ings to have a dance in preference to a beach
party. Three dancing classes were held in order that those who were inexperienced might

Reassemble once more
To evaluate, as we hear,
The accomplishments of this year.
W'e %ill call first of all
On a club formed this fall.
tJosephine Dennis, president of the Music Club. is ushered before the throne
of the Keeper of Recordsj.
Jo.i.ephiiner The Music Club. sponsored by AIrs. Baker, is as you have said. O Wor-
thy Keeper of the Records. a net club tc- the school this year. The purpose of the club is
to promote the further study of music in the school and to assist in the musical part of
programs. The members of the club have helped make it successful by taking turns in
preparing bulletin boards and by taking charge of meetings.
Alav it please your honor to accept this photo of the members of this club.
Keeper ot lhe RecordJ.: To make this subject complete
Let all musicians compete!
Call to the stand
The "maestro" of the band!
(Mr. Joy bravely takes the stand before the silent company'.
Mr. Joy: The High School Band, organized two years ago, has made a very cred-
itable showing. It has been active at many public events during the school year, such as
basket ball games at the playshed, the Commissary Christmas toy sale, the Boy Scout
program, the Junior Class Play at the Balboa Clubhouse, athletic contests, the Memorial
Day parade, and the Shriner's Picnic at Farfan Beach on George Washington's birthday.
On this last occasion the band received a twenty-five dollar donation which made it possible
to open a treasury account. This picture, I offer for your ilp:ctinn. was taken of the band
at the picnic.
The Hligh School Orchestra, also under my leIad-erlhip, is composed olf ftenty-seven
members. It is a confident and competent group. The musicians have supplemented their
regular class work with several public appearances. They played at the Balboa
Clubhouse for the High School and Junior College plays, at two Ar my and Navy Y.M.C.A.
public Sunday alternoon concerts. and at the Cecilia Theater in Panama City. Ours was
the final 'voice' in school activities this year %hen %\e played the 'recessional' for the
er.iduatine class on June the fifteenth. Such is our record.
Mrs. Baker couldn't come tonight so she asked me to present to you the accomplish-
ments of her String Quartet. To hear them is a musical treat. The quartet presented an
assembly program, consisting (-. mu'ements from several standard string quartets. and
solos bL\ the different instruments. The membership is as follows: lirst violin. Fred Ifend-
rickson,. second vit lin. Rosario Spinella; violin, lames lohnson; and cello. Charles Vincent.
()O.in& to the large number of pupils registered for the Glee Club. it has. for two
consecutive years. been necessary to divide it into three groups. T. ot elementary clubs
and ..ne advanced club -rrc, formed. About trenty-tive- pupils %ere in each section Mrs.
Baker has been in charge tf all the groups.
The evening Christmas program in the school patio %as their maior event. The girls
carried lighted candles. That they pleased "as sho'n by the compliments received from
the large audience that attended. In November, the Glee Clubs furnished music on Armis-
tice Day; in May. they planned a Spring Festival; and in lune, they sang at the graduation
exercises. In the .Adanced Glee Club a fe%, members have formed a Capella Choir for
the purp,)se of studying Capella Music. or unaccompanied singing. They believe
Capella Music to be necessary. for it tends to develop independence in the performer.
Keeper ,i/ the Recr.t.,: You have spoken %ell, 0 Master of Music, even as did the
great Theophilus %hen he said:
"Music's a great and never-tailing treasure
To those %%ho've learned and studied it in youth."

able leadership of Mlis CGa rdner, the art teacher of our school. This club, though mainly
interested in sketching the figure, also makes posters for any school event, many of which
were made this year for school plays. dances and luncheons. The assembly program given by
this club was enjoyed by all students. Lieutenant Judson Smith, of Fort Clayton spoke on
'Art as a Hobby, and its Development and he showed some of the art work he had done.

Keeper of the Records: The Albums last year met success
We'll see if this year they've met less.
(The ihsllv m.shL-WnLer enters with Mr. Pease, Album Club advis.r).
Jlr. Pearse. It is not entirely the fault of the members of the Album Club that it
has not been as successful this year as it was last. It was unfortunate in having to change
advisers in the middle of the year; and the old trustworthy members, who knew the art
of photography resigned, leaving to the unexperienced underclassmen the job of making
the pictures for the school annual. But I feel, Mr. Keeper of the Records, that nextyear at
this time the club will have a very favorable report to put in your records.
Keeper of the Records: 'Tis with regret we hear
The Albums weakened this year.

Jcseph Orr: AHEM! As president of the Biology Club, it gives me the utmost
pleasure to inform this worthy assemblage concerning this most outstanding club. spon-
sored by Mr. G. O. Lee. EGAD!
The membership of this club is limited to those who have taken bloily or who have
exhibited special talent in this field. The self-criticism which is a part ot every pri.-rr:m.
tends toward constant improvement; consequently, an individual seldom repeats the same
mistake. Inspiration and direction of purpose have been secured through the study of the
great biologists. HARR--UUIMIPII 1

(Margaret Alley, Editor in Chief of the Parrakeet, humbly brings forward the
following excerpt from an issue of the school paper).
Keeper of the RecordG: "Ah, ye knights of the pen! May honour be your shield, and
truth tip your lances! Be gentle to all gentle people. Be
modest to women. Be tender to children. And as for the
Ogre Humbug, out sword, and have at him."
When Thackeray said this, he was voicing my opinion as
well as his own.

Let the Little Theater speak
Be not boastful, be not meek.
Miss Jessup : As you no doubt know, Most Exalted Record Keeper, the Little
Theater, which was organized three \.;iar- ago for the purpose of encouraging dramatic
ability among the students of Balboa High, is composed of the Inner Circle and Outer
Circle. The club has inly one unfavorable thing to report; namely, the necessity for ch in--
ing officers during the school year. It has increased steadily in progress as well as in mem-
bership. The Little Theater started its fame with the production of the assembly play,
"The Valiant," st.arrin_ S.m Burks and Claudis fHowell. Its greatest dramatic successes
were the senior pl 3, "',Mr.. Bumpstead-Leigh," and the junior play, "A Murder Has Been
Only a few people had heard of the 'Sissapolla Indian ferb Remedies' and the 'Sayles
Favorite Stomach Elixir' before attending the senior play given at the Balboa Clubhouse
on. February sixteenth.
Virginia Foster, as Mr. Bumpstead-Leigh, was charming with her English accent
and lIirne'te. She had managed a n,a iria -, for herself into English aristocracy hiding the
fact that she was the daughter of Jim Sayles, vendor of patent medicines and stomach
elixirs. After a partial success in educating her mother to the ways of society, she tried
hard to marry her younger sister into an American family with a ., i.1. social background.
But, the sister, poor little Violet, pla. cd by Claudis Ho.vell just had to be truthful and
disclose the origin and early history of the De Salle name. Though she aroused the ire of
her sister and mother and lost her affianced husband, she won a true lover, and all ended
happily. Rebecca Williams, as Mrs. De Salle, the mother, often forgot her society manners
and acquired speech and produced some amusing sequences. The American family, the
Rawsons, consisted cf Justin Rawson, the father, played by James Prend-ilIra;t: Miss
Rawson, Justin's sister, played by Jean Strel: Anthony Rawson, elder son, played by
James Wright; and the y'rungcr son, Geoffery Rawson, pl1aived by Sam Burks.
The younger Rawson was considered the black sheep of the family because he pre-
ferred ranching and farming to business. However, the facts disclosed as the play progressed,
proved him to be the better of the sons and the only sincere one in the Rawson household
except Kitson, the butler. Sam Burks, in his rcle as Geoffery Rawson, was outstanding
as the sweetheart.
The servants in the Rawson home were Nin1. the maid, acted by Pauleta Foster,
and Kitson, the butler, acted by Robert Dwelle. Nina was an attractive girl and Kitson
thought it his duty to keep her on the 'right path.'
John .llhyd and Margaret Reinig took the parts of Mr. and Mrs. Leavitt, social lead-
ers and neighbors of the Raw-sons.
Walter Judson, as Peter Swallow, a former suitor of \Mr Bunip(icad-Lelgh. was
anxious to destroy the 'family tree' made by the latter. He used his business, that of
selling monuments, as a means of meeting people and then he bored them with his endless
speeches about himself and Indiana.
Those who assisted greatly in the production but who could not be seen by the au-
dience were Jack Dombrowsky, Robert Daniels, Frank Fit/patrick. and Mary Ruth
Music was furnished by the 11;gh School Orchestra under Mr. Joy's direction.
Keeper if the Reccrds: That you remember the words of Pope
I most sincerely hope.
"To wake the soul !\y tender strokes of art,
To raise the genius, and tc mend the heart"
To make mankind in conscious virtue bold,
Live o'er each scene, and be what they behold--
For this the tragic Muse, first trod the stage."
LITTLE E THEATER
SENIOR PLAY CAST
A MIL'RDER HAS BEEN ARRANGED
A murder was actually arranged for Balboa High. Oddly enough S. S. Van Dine had
no hand in it. Mr. Turbftil and others were responsible for the commission of the crime.
The assistants were: Beverly Boggs as Lady Beatrice Jasper, a lovely girl of eighteen; Dale
Boggs as Jimmy North, a romantic and handsome, young man; Dick Stoudner as Sir
Charles Jasper. middle-aged husband of Lady Beatrice; Isabel Schloming as Miss Graze,
the pretty, but hard secretary of Lord Jasper; Fred Hendricksen as the poker-playing
orchestra leader, Cavendish; Lucille Tarflinger as Mrs. Wragg, the middle-aged stage-
manager-cook; Marjorie Bullock as Beatrice's grasping mother; Elaine Bohan as "A Wom-
an," practice of black magic: and Manuel Devalle as the super-criminal and murderer,
Maurice Mullins. Together the group put on the Junior play "A Murder Has Been Ar-
In the course of the play, the audience discovered that lMaurie Mullins was to inherit
two million dollars if Lord Jasper died before his fortieth birthday. According to a legend
concerning a certain theater, if anyone was murdered in this theater, a ghost was to walk
there soon after the murder. A man was found there-murdered! Lord Jasper gave a party
in the theater hoping that his guests would see the ghost walk. The lcyend further told that
if a murder was committed in this theater, a dumb woman would be found nearby. The
"woman" would meet her end in a super-natural manner.
It developed that the theater was not the scene of the original murder, but Maurice
Mullins kindly murdered Lord Jasper so that the ghost would walk. This unearthly being
took his stroll; the dumb woman appeared and died. In spite of the fact that he started all
the excitement, 1lullins went insane and lost his inheritance. All the characters were
shu,,ked beyond \,:,rds; but the au.-lcn-ii %jis i-'t ;lth th e fe:in;2' that limmv and Lady
Jasper would recIter n,-ei\. A
Others who helped to produce the Junior play were Mary Ruth Dunham, prompler;
Bob Wempe, stage manager; Edward Covle, business manager; and .lr. Pease class
Hispano America, the club of Espafiol.
How near have you come to reaching y',ur goal?
Rcdrtqc, Aro.emena: As president of the club, Hispano .Arnmrica. it plkas-: me to
announce that the club has completed another successful year under the spmns,.rship or
Mr. Carson. The membership of our club is divided equally between the Spinish and
English speaking students. Several intL-rLstin: programs have been given, one ot th: best,
at Christmas. Lectures by distinguished Panamanians were a club feature. The season
closed with a "tertulia." or Spanish fiesta. (\'ith a polite Spanish gesture) Alics!
Let the charm Club relate
Ere we decide its fate.
(The president of the Charm Club, Edith Rowe, is ushered in).
Edith: The Charm Club has been. prominent in. Balboa High School for three
years. The members of the club acted as hostesses to the guests on Visitors' Day. They
also underto ik to teach the freshman dancing classes, and served at the freshman dance.

Keeper cj the Recordr: Thank you, most charming young lady.
Now the moment nears
To hear from the Engineers.
Howard Turner (president of the Engineers' Club): The Engineers' Club is the first
of its kind to be found in Balboa High School; its purpose being to stimulate a further
interest in engineering. Through the efforts of Mr. Hatchett, the adviser, several very
interesting lectures have been presented to the club about various factors and details of
engineerin;. Mr. Floh,-ir, and Mr. l c... u .it,!t are among' those who assisted at these
Keeper c/ the Recjrdf: Study well each plan
An engineer's a man.
Please try not to laugh
At the Zonian Staff.
(Louis Everson, Editor in Chief of the Zonian, takes his place before the Shades.)
Loui.r: All I have to say is that with the aid of Mr. Esser, our adviser, the Zonian
Staff has worked long and hard to present the yearbook to the class of '34, and to the Balboa
High SchoIl. To you I will give the picture of the editorial and business staff of the hoolk.

We will call on the History Club last
For they study, such as it is-the past.
(Mary MacGillivary, History Club president, is escorted by a shade to the keeper).
Alary: As in the past, our purpose has been to perpetuate the glory of this great
nation of ours in the minds of the high school students. Early in the year our club (often
called the Elcrys, because it is the reverse of the name of our adviser, Miss Syrcik) held a
candy sale, the proceeds of which helped to purchase a frame for the picture the club T:. e

I await your voice.
(The whole assemblage of ghosts at a motion from the Keeper of the Records
arise and chant):
We, the past classes, find that all is well.
Lonu live Balboa High School!
(Mysteriously and silently the shades disappear as a faraway clock strikes one. The
representative, of the various organi;zatins gratefully wend their way homeward, knowing
they never dare to breathe a word of their recent adventure to a living soul).

Starting with a bang and continuing with a bang, bang, the Athletic Council, under
the supervision of Mr. Zierten, rose from the graveyard of debts and succeeded in restoring
its long lost treasury.
Under the direction of Miss Amundson, an athletic-ticket drive got under ay during
the first semester. Marguerite Dryden, senior, was in charge of all sales. Although far from
being a financial success, the drive stimulated school spirit.
Jack Brown, president, and Marguerite Dryden represent the seniors.
Jack Sutherland and Claudis Howell, uphold the juniors. In the sophomore world, Arthur

Although Balboa was able to enter a well-balanced team, Cristobal ran away with
the track meet, 47-5.j. Five new school records were set in this meet.
The o(isfandlinL -tars of the meet were Paul Beard, of Cristobal, and George Tarflinger,
of Balboa. The lormner broke the 100 and 220 yard dashes in the remarkable time of 9.9
and 21.8 seconds respectively. "Tar" broke his own shot and discus records, previously
made when he represented Cristobal. Hollowell, of Cristobal, bettered the record for the
880 yard run previously held by Bill Burdge of Balboa.
