Stbitorial .


By John G. Klunk, '28.

"Our sincerest laughter with some pain is fought;
Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thought."
-Shelley.


To write the appreciation of the Editorial Staff
of the Cristobal High School annual, THE CARIB-
BEAN, and of the Class of '28, to the community,
is a task deserving of another pen than ours;
because it is so real it is difficult to express. The
school and the community are close to each other,
working for the same things, the successful com-
pletion of a high school course for the students,
and high standards for the school.
Not until we are Seniors do we realize what the
community means to the school. When the time
arrives for the staff to start work on THE CARIB-
BEAN, to see the printers, to raise funds, to put on
the carnival and class play, to see to the adver-
tising, only then do we realize the kindly interest,
the generous support, and friendship of which each
day brings fresh proof. This is the spirit that
develops our students, brings out their best,
teaches them the meaning of community interest,
understanding, and friendship.


In our games you are with us; if we win, you
knew we could and are glad of it; if we lose, better
luck next time. We are proud of our school, our
faculty, and our community, who have given us
their best.
We wish THE CARIBBEAN, the last and greatest
effort of the Class of '28, to carry to you our
warmest and sincerest thanks. Peans of praise
could only tell us, as we have tried to do, of the
share this community has in the welfare of the
students of our school. In graduating honorably
we have in part fulfilled your hopes for us.
Happy, carefree school days are ended; Cris-
tobal High School for us is finished. Well may we
say, "Our sweetest songs are those that tell of
saddest thought." That it pays to be patient
with youth, and to give encouragement when
needed is the lesson we have learned as we too have
needed these helps from the men and women
who are our community.

MR. WILLIAM A. SAWYERS.
Mr. Sawyers, our principal, has been with us
only this year. He not only handles the respon-
sibilities of the principalship but also teaches
General Science and Economics, not to speak of
being the sponsor of THE CARIBBEAN Staff.
He has instilled in us the school spirit by help-
ing us to give the best carnival that Cristobal
High School has ever had. It was through his
initiative that we had a special train to see
Lindbergh "hop off," and also the train to Balboa
when we won the "flying colors" in baseball.
The success of our annual, our class play, our
graduation, and our many activities is largely
due to his help.
Our Principal has the welfare of our school at
heart. He is the biggest "booster" we have.
We know that Cristobal High School will flourish
under his wise and friendly counsel.

As adviser of the Junior Class, Miss Hesse
helped the Juniors to give a very entertaining

Miss Emily Russell, Household Arts and United

the girls to become adept with the needle. Also
she has taught them to prepare many tasty,
delectable dishes. The girls demonstrated their
ability by serving a dinner to their guests, Mrs.
Sawyers, Mrs. Benson, and Miss Gustafson.
If one should happen to pass by the library
second period, he could see Miss Russell explain-

We sincerely regret that Miss Marvin does not
expect to be with us next year-but we have
thoroughly enjoyed her this year.

"Ethics" and her smile can never be parted.
Ethel came to us from Balboa in her Junior year.
Since then she has been a constant delight both
to her own classmates and to her numerous
friends of C. H. S. She is also a shining star
in athletics. Is it a wonder she was chosen as a
heroine in our play? Her pep and popularity
well fit her in the part of young Dulcy.
When there is a good time to be had, Ethel is
there and her impersonations often lend to the
jollity of the hour. She has the art of throwing
one into spasms of laughter.

JOHN G. KLUNK.
Jack's middle name must be "success" as he is
a success at whatever he tries. He is an excellent
musician on the cornet, at athletics he's a "whiz,"
a certain proof of his popularity and success in
the fact that he is Editor-in-Chief of THE CARIB-
BEAN, and President of the Senior Class.
He does not linger on the ladder of advance-
ment but reaches the top. During his High
School career Jack's name has found a prominent
place in everything he has taken part in, and
those are not few.
As Barton Hawley, the villian in the Senior
play, "Cupid Scores a Touchdown," he is a dash-
ing character.
Jack is also noted for having a good, clear voice
which has been a great help to our singing groups.

to have a good voice.
Often Daysie is called on for his drawing.
He is always ready to help his classmates.
As an athlete Albert also is good, as any one who

Denmark.
Chosen Vocation-Scientist.
What College Do You Expect to Enter-Bates College.
Hobby-Swimming.
Favorite Pastime-Music.

ROBERT H. AXTELL.
"A" stands for Axtell and also for "arguing"
and the two can easily be spoken of together for
"arguing" seems to be Axie's favorite pastime.
He would make a good debater or lawyer, we feel
sure.
Robert is also an excellent clarinet player and
has played in the High School Orchestra for
two years.
Few of the teachers have ever had to complain
about his work, least of all the mathematics
teacher. For he is unusually quick at under-
standing problems and questions that those less
proficient in this line find puzzling to say the
least. Robert can often be seen helping those
who do not understand the whys and wherefore's
of Physics or Geometry.

Favorite Expression-Aw---.
Hobby-Music.
Favorite Pastime-Swimming.

EMMA BANKS.
Bemma Anks as she has been nicknamed by
her friends, is'an important member of this Class
of '28. That she can sing is attested to by
the fact that she was in both Glee Club and
Chorus for three years, taking part in "Rip Van
Winkle" the Japanese Operetta and the "Musical
Review" in the Carnival at Fort De Lesseps in
1927 as well.
But singing is not her only talent for Emma
plays the piano very well also.
At gym she also shows ability in the way she
carries out directors' instructions. She swims,
plays tennis, basket ball and indoor baseball with
equal ease.

With his turned up pantaloons
And his merry whistled tunes."

EVANGELINE SMITH.
Vannie, the ever-pleasant Vannie, is a bright
and shining light in athletic fields. For years
she has been the "old faithful" in the Balboa
basket ball games-and a glorious "faithful" she
has proved. The track team's backbone was
always-Vannie. In fact, a synonym for athletic
ability in C. H. S. is-"Vannie."
And she is a real pal. Many a vanquished
soul struggling along the weedy path of education
has she helped. To know her is to love her.

ARTHUR E. ROTHENBERG.
When Arthur joined our ranks during our
Junior year, our curiosity was immediately aroused
to penetrate his quiet manner and to become
acquainted. Now we wouldn't sacrifice him for
six others, as he has so completely fitted into
our group that we would be lost without his
underlying current of humor that adds to our
pleasure in his character.
Arthur's well-earned honors are received un-
assumingly.
Arthur spends many spare moments away from
the haunts of mankind (also womankind) in the
tropical jungles.

BERNARD EDWARD LOWANDE.
"Hey, Eddie!" He is equally popular with the
boys and girls.
Edward keeps us guessing as to what his true
character is. He is the man of the moment, the
hero of "Cupid Scores a Touchdown."
Eddie must have his joke and the life of the
object of it, is one of long teasing. Many are the
girls who miss their trinkets-bracelets and hand-
kerchiefs-to have them suddenly appear in
his possession, and he leads them a life of misery
until they are returned. But Edward can also
be as serious as the hero of the Senior play, he
was well chosen. Although he deserted our group
for a time by going to Philadelphia, he soon re-
turned to complete the journey aboard old C. H.
S. We're glad to have you with us, Edward.

ZONELLA BLISS.
"Oh Zone, what's the English assignment?"
Thus we always depend on the dependable.
Zonella is one of the few who have followed this
class from the ground up, through twelve long
years of learning. Her violin talent is well known
both in and outside of school. She has led the
Supper Club as president with a firm but patient
hand this year.
As Mrs. Connors, the mother in the Senior
play "Cupid Scores a Touchdown," she is an
assured success. Zonella is a worker and a
reliable one, as has been proved through her
school career. As we glance through her High
School calendar we are surprised that one girl
has attained so much.

LUCIA SALAZAR.
Lucia is another joy to the heart of Miss
Sewell, because of her wondrous adventures in
the realm of Physics. Lesser stars gasp at her
marvelous adventure in the realm of Physics.
Lesser stars gasp at her marvelous understanding
of that study-the cause of many a downfall.
Although she is shy and somewhat retiring,
she is an important factor in the Senior Class-
far more important than she guesses. Full many
a student owes his rise to her. She never refuses
to aid.
She is not an athlete, 'tis true, but she is a
splendid student. Oh! that there were more like
her.

THE CARIBBEAN.


Looking back over the history of the Class of
'28, I am reminded of a trip through the Panama
Canal. I seem to see a Phantom Ship bearing the
name Cristobal High School and flying its colors of
purple and gold. In my fancy its crew seem to be
my school fellows, its officers, my teachers. The
Canal represents the four years of training in
High School and each set of locks signifies the
advancements we have made from year to year
in the four classes.
We, the Class of '28, who have successfully
weathered our journey through "The Canal of
Learning" are now out on the sea of "Self Sup-
port," having just passed the "Buoy of Gradua-
tion."
On October I, 1924, we entered "The Break-
water of the Freshman Class." This was a year
of excitement, when we first learned to look down
upon the eighth graders and the grammar school
students.
We noticed many landmarks on our journey to
"The Locks of the Sophomore Class." The most
important was the initiation. Next in line came
the party which we gave for the whole crew and the
officers of our good ship Cristobal High School.
By the time we reached the "Locks of the Sopho-
more Class" we had lost many of our passengers.
As we passed through these locks the landmarks
became more numerous.
We then continued our journey to the "Locks
of the Junior Class." By the time we reached these
locks our group of passengers had grown smaller
and some of our old passengers had left and new


ones replaced them. At this time our journey
took on a more interesting aspect, as most journeys
do when they are nearing their end. The work
grew heavier for us and new types of work ap-
peared. No one will forget the Junior-Senior
Banquet which our captain, Miss Dodds, told us
was the best she had ever attended in her seven
years as captain of the Cristobal High School.
We slowly passed out of the "Locks of the Junior
Class" only to enter the "Locks of the Senior Class."
The first landmark of importance was the roll
call which made known to us that seven of the
girls and five of the boys who had started on the
journey were still with us and the other boy had
joined us at the "Locks of the Sophomore Class."
At the "Locks of the Senior Class" we changed
captains. The first step which our new captain
took was to organize the staff of THE CARIBBEAN.
After these members had straightened out their
affairs, we began to make ready for the Senior
Party. Having passed this landmark we made
ready for the Carnival. We presented "Cupid
Scores a Touchdown" under the able direction of
Mr. Robert Noe. Shortly after this the Junior-
Senior Banquet was the daily topic for discussion.
Day by day the very last landmark of our jour-
ney, the one which marked the end, grew closer,
the "Buoy of Graduation." We beganatonceto
make ready for embarkation and soon we will be
scattered far and wide, and hope by this history
of the Class of '28 to keep the life of the Class of
'28 fresh in your minds always.

We, the Class of '28 of Cristobal High School,
being about to give up the ghost, and having
been examined and found of sound mind, body,
and memory, do hereby make, and publish and
declare this to be our last will and testament,
before advancing into the unknown future:
To the most aspiring Class of '29 we allot
the lot in "Monkey Hill,"-Mount Hope Cemetery,
wherein repose the dead and buried privileges of
Seniors, past, and present, mostly past, that the
Class of '29 cherish and place wreaths thereon,
keeping the endeared memory of the deceased
ever green.
Robert Axtell wills his playful ways to Roy
Walker, his eye shade and his arguing to Randolph
Orbaugh, his slow walk to Lilybel Cox, and his
melodious voice displayed in Senior English Class
to Morris Luce.
Emma Banks wills her soulful eyes to Wood-
ford Babbitt, her pearls to Mildred Bath, and her
good patronage of the telephone company to
Dorothy Heim, provided she uses the legacy
faithfully.
Gladys Beers wills her Southern brogue to
Virginia Stevenson, her use of the typewriter
to Adair Taylor, who has already been practicing
on it, her driving license to Marion Boomer, her
wind-blown bob to Miriam Arthur, and her ability
to talk to Vita Lyew.
Zonella Bliss wills her art of always knowing
her lessons to Robert Edwards.
Albert Days wills his speed in baseball to Paul
Hayden, a few inches of his stature to Roger
Deakins and Mike Green, and with much reluc-
tance, his nickname of "Tiney" to Lee Kariger.
Teddy Henter wills his understanding of Physics
to Lois Williams, his happy-go-lucky attitude to
Gretchen Palm, and his canoe trips to Woodford
Babbitt.
Jack Klunk wills his pull with the girls and the
teachers to Royal Higgason, his popularity to
Fieldon Bradford, to be added to his own supply,
and his part as villian in the Senior play to
Porfirio De Reuter.


Kathryn Lambert wills her reign in the office
and her right to answer the telephone to Margaret
Hayes, and her tardiness to classes to Betty
Montgomery.
Edward Lowande wills his punctuality of
getting to school at one second to eight to Jack
Pettit, his motto "After Me You Come First"
to Teddy Brandon, and his part as hero in the
Senior play to Vincent Lugli.
Arthur Rothenberg wills his good marks to
Fieldon Bradford, Vincent Lugli and Lee Kariger.
Lucia Salazar wills her long curls to Rosemary
Keene and Blanca Walker, her Spanish diction
to Charles Crum, and her ability to be seen and
not heard to Morton Southard and Virginia
Stevenson.
Evangeline Smith wills her ability to always
have a fountain pen to lend, to Morton Southard,
and her ability to translate Latin to James Quinn.
Ethel Westman wills her smile to Ruth Banks,
her dimples to Marion Lowande, her height to
"Sis" Hackett, her literary ability to Ethel
Barnett, and her vamping the boys to Rosemary
Keene.
To Lee Kariger and Anita Rankin we will a
year's growth before entering the Seniordom.
To the Junior boys, the Senior boys will their
grace in wearing loud ties.
To the Junior girls, the Senior girls leave their
seats at the Banquet table, their yells at the base-
ball games, and their parts in the Senior play.
To the whole school, we will our books, our
looks and our nooks to be cherished ever after.
IN WITNESS THEREOF, we have set our sealing
wax and hereto subscribed our John Doe's and
Mary Blank's, this first day of June, nineteen
hundred and twenty-eight Anno Domini.

CLASS PROPHECY.



Dramatic Personae.
Mr. Klunk...........By HIMSELF
Mrs. Klunk. ..... ETHEL WESTMAN
Place.-Riverside Drive, New York, 1935.
Time.-3 a. m.


Mrs. Klunk.-"Home again at 3 P. X. Staying
up with a sick friend again, or perhaps a late
meeting at Tammany where you seem to be so
popular lately?"
Klunk.-"Well, you see it was this way-- ."
Mrs. Klunk.-"All right, let's have the weak
explanation."
Klunk.-"You remember Days, don't you? He
just dropped into New York after a around-the-
world flight. He was out celebrating, so I decided
to celebrate too. We climbed in his plane and took
off for a hop down to Birmingham. When we were
walking up the street Days told me how he had
run into Gladys the last time he dropped off there.
She had married a millionaire, J. Pierpont Morgan
Doolittle, who made his fortune manufacturing
hairpins since long hair came back in 1930. She
told "Daisie" that Emma was making fine progress
in the law profession. She holds down a job with
a probate court; her main duty is to settle dis-
putes between disinherited relatives."
Mrs. Klunk.-"Well, what did you do when
you arrived in Birmingham? Don't try to avoid
the subject!"


Klunk.-"I bought a paper on the way up the
street, and read where Axtell had constructed a
200-inch telescope, and mounted it on a 'peak
in Darien' to look for lost planets. Say, by the
way, I heard that down in Panama, Lucia is the
head of an international chain of drug stores;
also down in that neck of the woods, Teddy Hen-
ter is a chemist in the Gatun waterworks. Oh, yes!
Days says that Lowande is a star football player,
learning from experience acquired in the Canal
Zone."
"On his round-the-world flight Days stopped at
the South Sea Islands where Arthur Rothenberg
is engaged in the very profitable business of selling
wooden nutmegs to the unsuspecting natives.
Arthur, of course, is acquainted with Zonella,
who is a missionary in an adjoining island."
"Kathryn is the head professor in a secretarial
training school. Evangeline runs a rest-cure
sanitarium for tired business men at Porto Bello,
the new health resort at the start of the trans-Isth-
mian Highway."
Mrs. Klunk.-"Well, I'll forgive you this time
for such late hours. I'm glad you met Albert
because it's a long time since I have heard any-
thing from the Class of '28 of C. H. S."

DERELICTS; HUMAN OR OTHERWISE.
Robert H. Axtell, '28.
GRAND PRIZE SHORT STORY.
1 *


"Robbers Still at Large." Thus screamed out
the 2-inch headlines of Colon's morning paper,
The Tribune. The column went on to relate how
two thieves had broken into the Front Street
jewelry store and before the very eyes of the
paralyzed night clerk, had made off with a large
packet of uncut diamonds and were last seen
boarding the night freight for Panama, immedi-
ately after quitting the rear exit of the shop.
The clerk, coming to his senses, had notified the
police, who in turn, stopped the freight at
Gatun, only to be met with no traces of
the escaped criminals. Only one clue had been
attainable. The purser of a large immigrant
ship lying in the harbor had notified the police
of the disappearance of two third-class passen-
gers, and pictures of the same had been forwarded
to the authorities, who had had them published
under the screaming headlines of the aforesaid
Tribune.
Little did Roy Smith of Gatun think of this,
however. Roy was a 13-year old boy in the eighth
grade. He and his chum, Bill Martin, were pre-
paring for a morning's outing in their cayuca upon
the island-dotted waters of Gatun Lake.
"Well, Bill, we had better put in the canteen
for we might get thirsty, and I don't favor drink-
ing lake water unless I have to."
"Yeah! That's a safe bet, Roy. You'd better
put a flash light in too, if we are going to board
that old ship. It might be dark down below."
The ship alluded to in this conversation was an
old boat anchored up in the lake. It had been
there a long time, and was put up in an island
cove used as a sort of ship's boneyard.
The two boys put off in their cayuca for the
island up the lake. After paddling for about an
hour the island was neared.
"Well, Bill, the old island seems to be about
abeam now."
"Yeah, and our old boat, the Mary F., seems
to be moving right along, too. Well, let's cut
around the point of the island. I know a short
cut, but the channel is full of stumps."


"Well, then, Bill, you come back here and take
the stern paddle and see if you can get through
without hitting about 'steen stumps."
The cayuca sped forward under the renewed
vigor of their strokes. Now and then the boat
would give a roll to one side or would be shoved
off its course, and a dull scraping noise would be
heard on the bottom, signifying the collision
with a stump. This amounted to nothing worse
than a trifling annoyance, and the boys made fun
out of it by seeing how few stumps they could hit.
"Say, you're some navigator, you are. How
much farther are we going, anyway?"
"Aw, Roy, you just keep your shirt on and
by the time we hit about two more stumps you'll
see the old ship herself."
A few hundred feet more and they were in a
sheltered cove where the old ship lay. She had
been once a good steamer but was now abandoned.
She was open to the caprices of the mild, tropical
weather.
Both of the boys remarked how picturesque
and queer the scene was with massive trees on
the bank nearly overreaching her decks as she
was anchored stem and stern. It seemed strange
that such an example of man's maritime progress
should be seen rotting away in the jungle-
bordered waters of the tropical lake.
There she lay, however, with ferns growing in
the damp corners of her deck and old canvas
awnings flapping in the breeze, while rotten
ropes trailed overboard into the pensive waters
of the lagoon below. On her foremost crosstrees
roosted a lone bird of the jungle, the only sign
of life in the drowsy heat of the landlocked cove.
"Let's tie up here to this ladder in the bow
and we'll go aboard. You can go up first, Bill,"
said Roy.
Bill suggested that Roy go up first as he was
the heavier and the ladder appeared somewhat
rotten. This, however, was only a cover for his
own reluctance to board such a spooky looking
craft.
Both boys were soon aboard her, and although
they spoke in subdued voices, as the situation








THE CARIBBEAN. 4t


seemed to demand, they both were eager to see
what the old ship contained.
"Say, Bill," said Roy, "did you notice that
fire ax lying on the deck and those splinters
beside it? It looks as though someone were aboard,
doesn't it?"
"Righto! But no one comes away out here,
you know."
"Nevertheless I have a hunch that someone
has been here, but we hear nothing of him at
present. Oh, well! We might as well forget
about it," observed Bill. "Let's go into the
forecastle and take a look below to start off
with."
Clambering cautiously down into the dimly
lighted forecastle, and brushing aside cobwebs
as they descended, they finally reached the crew's
quarters. On rounding the corner of the bulk-
head they suddenly came upon two rough-looking
men sprawled asleep on the dirty mattresses
spread on the floor. Both of the boys stopped on
tiptoe in blank amazement.
As Bill was the foremost he came to such an
abrupt stop that he braced his hands against the
bulkhead opposite him in such a manner as to
peel off a large cake of rust which fell on the
floor with a crash, awakening the sleepers.
"Schmidt, we're took," shrieked the wider
awake of the two men, "Beat it."
The men dashed down a dark passageway
leading into the forward hold. The thought of
the morning's headlines flashed through the boys'


Iz


Stede Bonnet's scarred and weather-beaten
face was very pale as he watched the water
gradually rising. The only light in the room came
from a flickering torch, which threw a ghastly
light over the water. The room in which he was
confined was below the level of the sea, which he
could faintly hear, beating on the rocks in front
of the fort, Fort San Lorenzo.
The hole through which the water was entering
the room was at the level of the sea at low tide.
(The tide rises only a few feet.) As the tide rose
the stream of water increased in size. When the
chamber was filled, Stede would be drowned.

minds. Instinctively they plunged after them
until they realized the danger of a possible en-
counter with the two men.
"Stop, Bill! They're liable to come back and
kill us if they come to their senses!" exclaimed
Roy, who immediately grasped the situation.
"Let's shut that iron door, and we will have
them."
Summoning all their strength the two boys
managed to swing the ponderous iron door upon
its hinges. Shouts arose from the entrapped
men who realized their desperate plight as they
heard the bolt dropped. The boys rushed out
and climbed over side into the cayuca. Paddling
furiously, they came out into the Gatun-Escobal
launch route. They hailed the first passing
launch, which happened to be bound for Gatun.
In fifteen minutes they were ashore in Gatun
and in another five were aboard the police launch
with the Mary F. in tow, bound for the old ship.
When the police boat reached the cove, the
anchor was dropped, and the boys, followed by
the two officers of the lake police force, jumped
into the cayuca and paddled quickly to the ship,
went into the hold, and after a short scuffle,
brought the men out handcuffed and carried
them aboard the launch.
"Well, boys," said officer Donnelly, "you
have those two robbers who broke into the Colon
jewelry store night before last. They stole a
cayuca and hid aboard the old ship, thinking
themselves safe from discovery."

He had been here only a short time and already
the salt water had reached his waist, entirely
covering the stone bench to which he was securely
fastened. The level was gradually rising. His
fate was inevitable.
The evening before, Sir Henry Morgan, the
famous English pirate who was so active around
Panama during the middle seventeenth century,
had personally ordered Stede and another man,
Dayton, to go ashore and see if they could gain
entrance to Fort San Lorenzo. They were to
bring him a report as to the strength of the fort,
and the best method of attack.


AN OLD TIME VISIT TO FORT SAN LORENZO.

They had landed nearly a mile up the coast,
in a small boat, about six o'clock. With a great
deal of hard and dangerous climbing they reached
the moat in the rear of the fort. They lay there
until it grew dark, watching the walls all the time.
There was one place in the wall which seemed to
be lower. It was just where two sentries met,
and was very dark, because the light from the
torches in the sentry boxes did not penetrate
that far. They noticed that the sentries always
stopped at the light at each round, so that there
was an interval of four minutes during which time
no one was on the wall. Finally, as the guards
parted, Stede and his companion slipped into the
moat. Silently they swam across, gaining the
slight embankment between the wall and the moat,
just as the sentries returned. They lay there,
hardly daring to breathe. When the guards again
departed, Stede, climbing onto his mate's should-
ers, quickly scaled the wall and slid down the
other side. He was the first of many of Morgan's
men who would enter the fort in the next 48
hours.
In a short time he had all the information
necessary. Just as he was about to climb the wall
his heavy cutlass hit against a stone, attracting
the attention of the passing guard. The latter
came over to investigate, and Stede struck him
down with a blow from his cutlass. The guards
on the wall, attracted by the confusion, seized
Stede as he attempted to climb it. He was taken
before the Spanish Commander and questioned.
As he had given no information and had been very
disrespectful, he was sentenced to death by


drowning. He was placed in a dungeon for the
rest of the night. In the morning a heavily armed
guard had come and taken him to the death
chamber. Here they left him, and now the water
was gradually rising. In the last half hour he had
noticed that the boomingof thesurf had increased,
and was now a deafening roar. The water was
up to his shoulders now, and as it crept slowly up-
ward, it made his scalp crawl. He realized that
his end was very near.
Now the water had risen above his mouth;
it would soon cover his nose and cut off all
possible means of breathing. He was straining
against the straps that bound his head, to bury
his face in the water and end the terrible torture.
Suddenly a trap door, directly over his head,
was thrown open and a ladder quickly put down.
His comrade of the night before, spattered with
blood and carrying a smeared cutlass, tumbled
down the ladder, dived into the swirling water
and hurriedly carried Stede up out of the
dungeon. Whey they at last reached the open
air, Stede, dazed and weak, saw that it was not
the surf which had caused the terrible booming,
but that it had been the guns of the pirate ships,
his ships. Everywhere about him were men that
he knew, not Spaniards. While going to report
his strange experiences to his general, he stumbled
over the headless body of the Spanish Com-
mander who had sentenced him to death.
Fort San Lorenzo, an impregnable fortress,
had easily fallen into the hands of Sir Henry
Morgan, just in time to save the life of one of his
most able assistants.


SOLDIERS TWO.
By Helen Logan, '3o.
(Best Sophomore Story.)


MY DEAR NIECE:
If, as you say, you can write a book from my
story I wish you all the luck in the world. I am
trusting to your discretion not to mention the
names of my twin brother and myself. As for the
others, I shall change them to suit my fancy.
You will remember, probably, my reputation
all through college was quite bad. I gambled and
drank continuously, but things went on alright
until my senior year. I was always lucky at cards


and that year someone pulled the old gag about
cheating. I had taken it before, but this particu-
lar person was so insistent that we had a friendly
argument. Then he grabbed a gun and when I
tried to get it away, it went off and shot him.
I was just drunk enough to realize that I had to
get away or ruin the family name and fortune,
as well as Phil's chances. I don't remember wheth-
er there were any witnesses or not, but I knew a
trial would be the last straw. Dad was hard and








THE CARIBBEAN.


I'd have had to leave anyway. Better that
mother should think me just-gone.
Of my trip west I haven't the slightest remem-
brance. In San Francisco I enlisted for Panama.
I remember noticing the men in the same group
with me, and it took my mind off my troubles.
They were all different types, but there was only
one who took my fancy. He couldn't have been
seventeen, but I heard him answer to twenty-one.
He was of a slender, athletic build, with a quick
alert look about him, as if he had been through
many experiences in spite of his youth.
On the boat I sauntered over to where he stood.
"Got a match?"
Without looking at me he put his hand in his
pocket, pulled out a box and handed it to me.
I saw it would be hard to break his reserve,
and the way to do it would be to act as aloof as he.
Before the boat docked we were buddies.
At first everyone grumbled, but we all liked
it after a while. Most of the bunch were old
timers, and I had been through Panama before
several times, on visits, so we knew the place a
little.
From vague sources I had heard that I was sup-
posed to have gone to Canada, to China, to
Nicaragua, to Chicago, to have committed
suicide, to have become a rum runner, and other
such foolish ideas. The papers wrote it all up,
of course, and the "general" was supposed to be
very angry. That did not matter any more. But
the most important thing was always omitted.
I couldn't find out whether the man had been
killed or not.
Then Phil came down. He was an officer in the
Medical Corps, had been through West Point,
and was quite important in army circles,
especially medical. Luckily, I was of a type which
seldom attracts especial attention. He did not
even notice me. He was at an engineer post, and
I was in the infantry, so he never saw me.
One day a group of us went out hunting, my
buddy and I, and three others, who had come down
with us. We had a Io-day pass. At the end of
five days things began to look ugly. The three
others were always watching us with a half-sly,
wily glance. That afternoon the Kid, as my bud-
dy was called, came to me and said:
"Steve, I'm worried. Martinez and the others
are planning to'go over the hill.'"


After discussing the matter we decided not to
interfere. They could not force us to go. It was
not our place to make them return, except that
we might be accused of aiding them to escape.
On thesixth day they toldus. Wehadstarted to
turn back, but they said that they would need all
the provisions. Plainly, we would go with them
or starve. A native was to guide them along the
coast to Costa Rica; from there boats would
take them to different ports.
No one thought about or questioned our past,
but the Kid had evidently had some experience
with affairs of this type. He motioned me to be
quiet.
"We'll go on for a way. At least till we can get
some provisions."
It went over pretty well. That night we stop-
ped at a native shack that had been deserted.
By the time we had eaten and the fire was dying
into embers in the clearance, lighting up the
grim, surrounding jungle, our plans had been
made.
As we sat in a circle waiting, the quietness
grew oppressive, the oppressiveness grew tense,
and finally the Kid nudged me, at the same time
rising and strolling into the hut. There is a great
deal in taking a situation psychologically. Every-
thing was done casually. I pulled the pipe out
of my mouth, knocked the ashes out.
"Well, it looks like the Kid and I would turn
back to-morrow."
The big Swede, Arlsen, was on his feet.
"Vat! You tink you take dose grub?"
It was threatening. Farman growled, "Shut
up, let me handle this," as he pulled the Swede
down.
Then I heard a voice behind me, and its cool
tones made me wonder just how much the Kid
would mind killing a few people.
"If you gentlemen will be so good as to remain
seated, perhaps we can discuss this quietly."
He was handling a pretty little automatic and
leaning coolly against the door. The Swede jump-
ed and stared open-mouthed at the gun.
"Private property. Comes in handy some-
times, you know," the Kid explained. Then
sharply, "we're going back, and you're coming
along. If you want to 'go over the hill,' wait
until we're not along."
Just for an instant I saw Farman look side-
ways with a malicious smile. From inside the








44 THE CARIBBEAN.


hut a knife appeared, and the hand that held it was
one I had never seen before. I fired, the Kid fired
over my shoulder, and as I wheeled instinctively,
I saw Martinez fall and Farman pull a Colt
automatic from somewhere.
The scene, as I remember it before I went
down, impressed itself indelibly on my mind. The
Swede stood out plainest in the savage surround-
ings, because of his tall, huge frame as well as his
fairness of complexion. The coals were almost
out, and only a faint glow illuminated the scene,
lighted up the dark green of the jungle, and dis-
closed the body of Martinez who had fallen with
the knife still clutched in his hand. There was a
heavy, sweet odor of tropical flowers, and after a
last report, I remember remarking to Farman,
who still crouched with a heavy, smoking gun.
Well, I'll see you later, old chap," as I shot
for the last time.
Then I must have been unconscious for some
time, and when I awakened, I was in the hos-
pital, and Phil was leaning over my bed. He
smiled the old familiar smile that was typical
of his quiet way. I've learned to love that smile,
and I knew the game was up.
"Steve, you certainly had it over on us, didn't
you?"


"Sir?"
"None of that. Dad bought you out yester-
day."
"Pardon, sir, but I don't understand."
"Never mind. The boy didn't die, and besides,
young Hampton had been watching from the
window."
Then I must have cried. Phil held my head
saying, "You poor kid. We were almost too late."
Once a year, now, Phil and the Kid, now
Second Lieutenant A. J. Weseley, and I have asort
of reunion. As an Army Chaplain, I am very
happy, and when you and young Weseley are
married, I'll be as contented as an old man can
be. Phil is a famous surgeon now, and since you
are his niece, there will be a church full of im-
portant people at your wedding.
Your husband-to-be is very brave, but very
bashful. I'll leave him the task of explaining how
we cleared his record and sent him through the
academy. Also you must find out from him how
he held off the others, and took care of me until
Phil and his men arrived. Now, my dear, I must
go to see some of the men in the hospital.
Your devoted uncle,
FATHER STEPHEN, S. J.

OLD PANAMA.

Story.)


(a

Governor Arias had received a note from
Morgan saying that he would appear within the
year and that he would take the city. Morgan
had just captured Fort San Lorenzo. Since I was
a personal friend of the governor, he told me that
he was very worried. He at once sent out an
order for stronger fortifications and more soldiers.
The work of fortifying the city and training the
men went on speedily. Ships, laden with gold
from Peru, were coming into port every few days.
Soon, however, the ships coming in told of the
hard time they had keeping away from the
English. Finally, one day, news was brought to
us that Morgan was coming. The governor was
very distressed, but nothing happened in the
next few days so we thought no more of it.
Months passed and still no sign of Morgan.


(I learned afterwards that he had taken his
ships apart on the Atlantic side and had crossed
over by land to the Pacific side and had put them
together on Taboga Island.)
Four months passed when finally we saw four
English ships come into the harbor. They
started firing at us and we fired back. Our men
were soon frightened as the English were pretty
good marksmen. They had blown big holes in
the Cathedral where many people had gathered
to pray.
I ordered my few belongings taken to a cave
just outside the city. The governor, by this time,
was panic stricken. The guns in our forts, which
had been booming for some time, suddenly
stopped firing. Our men came pouring out of the
forts saying that the English had blown our guns








THE CARIBBEAN. 45


to pieces. By this time the people were leaving
the city and it was getting dark. The governor
placed a heavy guard over on the city walls.
The monks were taking the silver and gold
from the churches and burying it in the secret
underground tunnels. The rich Spaniards, after
turning their valuables over to the monks, were
buying up mules and horses and escaping in the
direction of Porto Bello and some of the interior
settlements.
The next morning, when I went to the gov-
ernor, he said that he wanted me to command
the left wing of the army. He had the soldiers
already lined up. I proposed staying inside the
walls of the city, for I knew that Morgan could
not have many men, but he refused, and when we
saw the English advancing, we went out in army
formation to meet them. We had some natives
drive bulls at the enemy, but the bulls broke loose
and scattered. The fighting began. My men
fought bravely for a while, but when they saw
the other wing had fled and they were being
surrounded, they turned and fled toward the
city. A large number of them were taken
prisoner and killed. I escaped because I had
hidden in the cave.
The governor had been killed during the battle
so there was no one to govern the people. The
English began to loot and to torture the people.
They killed the monks outright if they did not tell
were they had hidden the gold. They took some
of the richer people for ransom. After much
plundering, the English set fire to the city.
The next day I thought everything was all right
so I left my cave. The city had been burned to
the ground. As I came into the public square
who should I see but Morgan and his men. I saw
at once that it was useless to try to escape, so
I was taken prisoner. Horrible thoughts flashed
through my mind as to how he would kill me.
It was a long tiresome trip across the Isthmus.
We had very little food and the Indians were
constantly shooting at us. At last we reached


Porto Bello. We were all taken on board the
ships and put in chains until we should be ran-
somed. That night was a miserable one for me.
The next morning Morgan came to our ship.
They had on board 16 monks who were trying
to get someone to ransom them. They asked
Morgan to let them go and to hold a rich girl
instead. When he heard this, he ordered every
one of them to be killed and had their heads
hung up on the ship's yards. I thought my turn
would be next, but it didn't come. Morgan
ordered the girl to be given a sum of money
and an escort to take her across to Panama City.
When they came to take me back downstairs
they told me that I would be killed at sunset
the next day if some one did not ransom me.
They only had one man on guard that night
as there were only a few of us left. I found a piece
of file by my side and was soon at work getting
the rusted chain off my leg. This did not take
very long. I then got my knife from my belt and
waited until the guard came. As it was dark he
could not see me and I soon had him laid out on
the deck. I pulled him in behind some of the
chests and after putting on his clothes, I waited
for morning. At daybreak I went on deck and
asked the captain for a boat to go ashore. He
gave it to me after I promised him part of my
supposed plunder. I had not gotten more than
a thousand yards when I heard the report of a
pistol. I knew, then, that I was discovered so I
rowed as hard as I could. I did not wait for the
boat to ground. I jumped from it and ran
toward the jungle. I heard the shots whizzing by,
but none of them more than grazed me. I hid up
a tree until it was dark fearing that some of
my pursuers might be around.
At about eight o'clock I started for Panama
City. When I reached the city, I found that the
few inhabitants who remained had decided to
move to another place seven miles away. They
thought that the new place could be more strongly
fortified.

ALL HAIL! COLONEL LINDBERGH!
By Emma Banks, '28.


~(HX8ij


All, on entering Cristobal school this morning
of mornings, January 26, 1928, were greeted with
an air of intensity-a feeling of excitement and
expectancy. Quickly the joyous news reached
every ear. "We're going to France Field on a
special train to see Lindbergh hop off!"
The graded school marched in files. The High
School was left to take its own course. Some
skipped, some ran. Breathlessly they climbed
the train, and soon the long line of cars pulled
out with laughing, singing, chattering children.
At France Field all interests concentrated upon
catching the first glimpse of their hero. Soon a
Douglas transport plane landed. Colonel Lind-

BANANAS GWINE BY.

By Joyce Alberga, '3.

"Bananas' Bananas! Ripe bananas gwine by!
Come missus, tek a look! Bananas! Six fo' a
nickel; 12 fo' a dime!"
Such is the cry of an old colored woman selling
bananas to make a living.
She lives in a large tenement house in one of
the many alleys of Colon. Every morning rain
or shine, she rises at 5 o'clock in order to
begin her sale of bananas before anyone else.
Her clothes are always clean, but of course not
all of the latest fashion. On her head she wears
a piece of soiled cloth wound around it, somewhat
like a coolie turban. This is necessary because on
it she carries a big board in the form of a waiter.
It is filled with ripe bananas. She carries it on
her head all day, and never once does it fall.
It is really remarkable.
When Mammy, as she may be called, finds a
customer she is very pleased and talks the whole
time that she is selling. Her conversation may be
heard to be-"Yes, Mum, dey his lufly dis
martin'. Oh! hain't you going to take more
than that? Please, Missus, dey really ham
nice. Dere, das a good lady. I'se gwine to
give her hextra fo' dat. Good-bye and tank
you Mum. Hi'll come agin timmarrah."

Then the gates of the hangar were thrown

After the mechanic had tried the motor, Lindy

few of his personal friends, and climbed in.
Shortly, he waved good-bye to the eager throng,

THE TOM-TOMS.
By Arthur Rothenburt, '28.
Night after night I heard it. Always the
same irregular cadence of knocking coming from
off in the distance. Somehow, it always sug-
gested someone hitting on wood.
Whenever I heard it, romantic fancies of savage
Indians far off in the dense ungles beating on
tom-toms and performing their wild dances would
come to my mind.
One night I heard the sound louder than usual.
It seemed to come from an island a short distance
from shore. Hurriedly seizing a flash light, I
rushed to the beach. At first I heard nothing;
then to my hearing came the same irregular-
rythm of wooden thumps, but this time followed-
by mighty splashes.
Upon looking closely in the direction of the
noise, I perceived a dark, moving blur on the
water. It moved in a large circle, and finally
approached the beach where I stood.
Turning my light on it, it proved to be a
cayuca containing several fishermen, who had
been laying a seine. When I inquired the source
of the knocking and splashes, I was told that
fisherman when laying seines always beat on the
boat and water with their paddles to scare the
fish into the seine.
So perished my fancies of Indians, jungles, and
drums.

THE CARIBBEAN.


"Ah, land at last!" So exclaimed Jim Thorpe,
looking through the porthole upon the outline of
the land which was to be the home of his new
adventures. He was anxious to make a success of
the work which might place his name among the
foremost engineers of the day.
The commercial world demanded the exchange
of products between east and west in the shortest
possible time. Thus the project of the Panama
Canal. And young Jim was one of the engineers
detailed to work on the locks of the great water-
way.
After the strenuous work of drawing plans,
organizing details, and assembling materials,
Jim began to feel the need of companionship.
The monotony of the tropical heat by day and the
cries from the jungle by night did not furnish
enough excitement.
One day while wandering among the interesting
ruins of old Panama, he had a misfortune to fall
and hurt his ankle. While sitting on the ground
wondering what to do next, he heard voices.
Glad that some human beings were in calling
distance, he shouted for help. Much to his relief
a party of fine people soon loomed in sight.
Don Pedro, his daughter, Rosita, and his two
sons and their guide were returning from a fishing
trip. The injured man was carried on a hastily
made stretcher to their ranch house.
The injury, although not severe, kept him in
bed for several days. Every kindness was shown
him by his host and many a pleasant hour was
whiled away in teaching the young sefiorita to
understand the English language.
After his recovery he returned to his work but
not before he promised to come and see his bene-
factors. Many happy week ends were spent at
the ranch and the friendship soon became a
lasting one.


One morning the overseer received an unusually
large quantity of mail. Among the letters was an
official envelope bearing Thorpe's name. The
news it contained was both delightful and dis-
appointing. He had been promoted and this
meant his going back to the States. His new field
of work was to be in the Mississippi Valley. The
next day he went to bid his new friends farewell.
It was hard to say good-bye and Rosita's sorrow
was not hidden.
His work in the States lasted for several years.
Then came the anxious exciting days of the World
War. Thorpe was one of the first of America's
youths to rally to the Colors. After a few months
of hurried drills at training camp his company
was sent overseas.
During the gloomy, dreary days of the fall of
1917, while some soldiers were working on a
bridge, a bomb dropped from a German plane,
damaging the bridge and taking a heavy toll of
life and injuring many.
Thorpe was severely wounded and was knock-
ed unconscious. When he awakened he found
himself in a field hospital. It seemed that he
dreamed of a cool hand placed on his feverish
brow. It was in reality for an angel of mercy was
standing near murmuring, "Oh, Jim! Do you not
remember your old friend?" He stared and tried
to recall, but, soon exhausted, he fell into a
swoon-like sleep.
The next morning the angel said, "It is more

THE SHORT STORY CONTEST.


The short story contest was eagerly sponsored
by the literary aspirants of the high school classes.
Stories of all descriptions were handed in, and
there was a wealth of material to choose from.


Mrs. Grunewald, Mrs. Kidd, and Mr. Cun-
ningham were the judges who chose the winning
stories. The Staff sincerely appreciates the serv-
ices rendered by the judges during the contest.

THE DESTRUCTION OF THE PANAMA
CANAL.
By David Ketchum, '3r.

It had been raining for three weeks without
stopping once. Gatun Lake was rising at a
fearful rate. Communication with the outside
world was impossible. The wireless masts were
washed away although the air would have been
full of interference to have sent real messages
anyway. None could go out without risking
life or limb in the streets that had turned into
beds of raging rivers. Many of the houses were
being washed away. Forts Sherman and Randolph,
and the Naval Base were under many feet of
water. Gatun Spillway, strained to the utmost,
could hold no longer and crashed. Then an old
and supposedly extinct volcano just outside the
breakwater erupted. Slowly the Isthmus began
to---
"John," cried Mrs. Okly, "John, now hurry
and dress for school."

THE OLD HIGHWAY.
By Roger Deakins, '29.
Among the many traces of ancient Spanish
occupation of Panama, left by the bold con-
quistadores, is the Las Cruces Road. Once a
well-traveled roadway, winding among the hills
and the dank fever-breeding swamps, stretching
from the massive walls of Old Panama City to
the beautiful harbor of Porto Bello. On this
highway, murder and thievery ran as unrestrained
as the luxuriant tropical jungle growth which
now almost completely obliterates it. Great
trees have grown in the road and their grasping
roots have dislodged the cobblestones in such a
manner that the parts of the road that can be
seen are barely recognizable. Once the air
tinkled with the sound of silver bells attached
to the pack mules that formed the gold train.
Now the harsh sound of the parrot's scream and
the squeak of a lizard as it scuttles over the blocks
are the only sounds heard, and the old road lies
and dreams of past days.

THE CARIBBEAN. 51


TOURISTS IN COLON.

By Miargaret Hayes, '29.

1 .

One sunny morning in the city of Colon,
There came a group of tourists to town,
Buying shawls, beads, and all sorts of things,
Fit even for the greatest of kings.

2.

One little woman, short and fat,
Wearing a plaid coat and large black hat,
Pulls off her gloves, and gives a sigh,
"I don't see how they stand the heat!
Oh, my!"
3.
"Now isn't this a most gorgeous shawl?"
To her husband whispers a lady tall.
"Yes, yes, dear, but don't forget my advice
Never should one pay the first price."

4.

"Mother, mother, I want this box;
Look how it opens, and just how it locks.
First one has to find the key!
Mother, I want it. Oh, Jiminy Gee!"

5-

One old gentleman, perspiring with heat,
Looks at the cigarette holders, while taking a seat.
"It is just the kind for you, Meester."
"For me? No, no. For my sister."

6.

"And what is that queer animal's name?"
"Oh, he's the ant eater of great, great fame."
Comes from the jungle, not far from here.
He's dead, Miss, please have no fear."

7.

"Buy a lottery ticket," the vendors cry,
"Six is the number for the lucky guy.
Tink ob de gran surprise
When you wins de big first prize."

8.

"Say, there goes the Panama Railroad train,
And now, my gracious, 'tis beginning to rain.
I never did see such a dirty place,
Why look at that negro's good-natured face."

9.

Two young chaps in a hat store
Are trying on Panama hats galore.
"I know the weakness of we males,
But I think I resemble the Prince of Wales!"


There passes us, a foreign man,
A bunch of bananas in his hand.
He calls to his mate to hurry up,
Who growls in answer, "Aw, shut up."
II.
In a carametta, a curio of this town,
Sat two old ladies, riding up and down.
And enjoying themselves, forgetting th: heat
And thought the ride was such a treat.
12.
"Come, come, 'tis late; we must haste,
Back to the boat; there's no time to waste,
You know the boat will soon be leaving,
As it is scheduled to leave at six this evening."
13.
If you should wish to have some fun,
Go watch the tourists, every one,
When they visit this fair little town
Called the City of Colon.

IF I WERE A POET.
By Helen Logan, '3o.

I wish I were a poet,
With gift of thought sublime;
The kind who put elusive words
In magic verse and rhyme.

I'd write of the little golden stars,
That twinkle in a deep blue sky;
Or the moon like a beautiful lady,
Who goes slowly floating by.

Oh, I would write such interesting things
That nature tells to me;
(If I were a poet,
And could write it well, you see.)

But I am not a poet,
And my words sound stiff and dry.
So I think I'll put aside my pen
And let another try.

EVENTIDE.
By Alice E. lVestman, 'r.

The night is slowly coming on,
And the day is slowly fleeting.
The skies are aflame with red and gold,
And shadows now are creeping.
The palm trees near by the sea
Look black against the evening sky,
And seem to whisper tales of old
As the close of the day is drawing nigh.
The waters of the open sea
Sing songs of mystery to me,
And blackbirds now do cease their call
As the shades of night finally fall,









52 THE CARIBBEAN.


GLIMPSES OF LIMON BAY.

By Vita Lyew, '29.

I sit upon the old wall by the sea
\\ ]chimC the children at their play,
And the large waves coming toward me
Forgetful of the sun's scorching ray.

At evening still you find me there
When slowly the sun sinks,
Coloring the wall with its flare
And dyeing the bay with pinks.

The sunset must gradually fade away
Into the splendor of the night;
The children in their little beds lay,
And the bay glistens in the moonlight.

The lighthouse across the bay
Flashes out its ever faithful light
To guide the ship on its way
And emphasize the darkness of the night.

The tiny stars begin to shine
Like diamonds againstt the sky so blue,
And the wan white moon divine
Whose radiance lights the heart so true.

How calm and serene life seems
With all these beauties rare,
As if painted by an artist in his dreams
When freed from all sorrow and care.

Far from the city's adding roar
I revel in my quietude and dream.
The nearby chimes announce the late hour
And start me from my dream.

And as I homeward turn sleepily
The waves their adieu bid
The chimes are pealing sweetly,
Of hum:;n hic the wall is rid.


ODE TO FORT SAN LORENZO.

By Robert Axtell, '28.

Peace to thee, thou noble ruin;
Long may we see thee stand
Above the rocks, above the dune,
Above the coral strand.
With crumbling walls and long dried moat,
And cannon now in rust,
Thou listenest to the breaker's note,
To whispering palm trees hushed.
Oh, Glory of the Spaniard's fame,
Who fixed thy stones so high;
Their glory now is but a name,
But yours still brooks the sky.


A TRIO FROM THE ISTHMUS.

By Basil Frank, '31.

"Ripe bananas! Ripe bananas!
A dozen fo' a dime.
Dese am nice ones, lady
Fo' I sell dem all de time."

It's the old banana lady
With her tray upon her head.
I hear her early in the morning
When I am still in bed.

There is also the bootblack
With his "Shine, Mister? Shine?"
He'll clean your shoes up nicely
For the small cost of a "dime."

He's always around by the barber's
Where he finds a ready fee.
Sometimes he gets a five cent tip,
Then he's happy as can be.

Another one who is never sure
If he's going to get a dinner,
Is the age-bent driver of the orange cart.
His eyes have long lost their glimmer.

He may be seen in the morning
Apushing his cart along;
And if a "cochero" blocks his way
He rings his home-made gong.

They are just a few of the many
Who have lived on the Isthmus so long-
The banana lady, the bootblack,
And the orange-cart man with his gong.

But let me tell you something.
Of which you do not know,
These people are always satisfied.
They smile wherever they go.


OUR HIGH SCHOOL BOOK,
"THE CARIBBEAN."

By Mary Bretch, '3r.

A book of memories so fond and dear,
Of reminiscences you love to hear;
Of sports, alumni and literature too,
The fun and joy we've all passed through.

When other roads you travel, and new friends you meet,
Ponder oft' thoughts of childhood days so sweet.
Remember, yes! Remember the good old days of yore,
So gayly spent at Cristobal High on the Caribbean shore.









THE CARIBBEAN.


DAY-DREAMS.
By BasilFrank, '31.
While sitting down beside a stream,
I watched the clouds. They began to seem
Like the things upon the earth below,
On this land long, long ago.
I saw a castle in the air;
I saw a lady in despair;
The castle stood on running sands
In the land of caravans.
And there a knight of the Table Round,
Stood below upon the ground,
Fighting bravely for to save
His lady from an Arab knave.
When this scene from before me flew,
The deep wide ocean came to view.
There was a ship with all sails set
Going where tle trade winds met.
It was a Spanish ship I saw;
Its splendor filled my soul with awe.
But what ship follows in its wake?
A vessel captained by Francis Drake!
Then I saw a flash of flame;
A roar as from a giant came;
Both ships disappeared from view,
And the scene was changed to something new.
I saw a scene, a scene of peace
In the lovely land of Greece.
A young man though his arm lacked brawn,
Was carving the figure of "September Morn."
He cut a smile upon her lips;
A graceful curve upon her hips;
The face was tilted in the air;
Wavy and curly was the hair.
The spell then broke, the spell of the dream,
And I found myself beside the stream.
All these things I had composed
From the clouds as I sat there and dozed.


PERPLEXITY.

By Elsie Darley, 'o0.

What shall I write about?
What shall it be?
These questions I'm stating
Are bothering me.
What sort of language and
What sort of rhyme?
Dear me, I am having
A troublesome time.
The more things to choose from
The harder the choice.
The sooner I've finished
The sooner I voice
My relief at just dropping
This burdensome job,
And write like the rest
Of the prose-writing mob.
A poet is born, and not made,
So they say;
And now I'll discreetly retire
For to-day.




THE LOCKS AT NIGHT.

By Ruth Duvall, '3r.

Have you seen the locks at night?
They are a very wondrous sight,
With great ships passing to and fro,
Going to lands we do not know.
And many lights along the way,
Standing there like sent'nels grey,
Seem to beckon you at sight,
To come and see the locks at night.


THE PALM TREES.

By David Ketchum, 'Jr.

You see them standing
In the sunlight,
Tall and proud, showing
Their royal might.
You see them on the borders
Of the romantic lagoon,
Bending and bowing while silhouetted
Against the moon.
You'll see them in the jungles
Where Morgan hid his gold,
Standing o'er all the trees,
Like sentinels of old.
If under tropical sun you have
Chanced to live,
Surely you'll appreciate the shade
This graceful tree gives.

ALUMNI.
The Alumni Department of THE CARIBBEAN continues to grow. Each year
a dozen or more names are added to the ever-lengthening list. This year we
have passed the hundred mark. Cristobal High School has o10 graduates.
Nearly half of these are still on the Isthmus. Several of them have visited us
at school. We are always pleased to see them and hope that they as well as those
who are in the States, will continue to be interested in C. H. S. and its activities.

EXTRACTS FROM MY DIARY.
Emma E. Banks, '28.
-- W[


Oct. 3. School opens with a bang. Mr. Wil-
liam A. Sawyers, the new principal, is full of pep
and good-looking. He promises to be popular
with both the boys and girls. C. H. S. is also
honored with two new teachers, Miss Marvin
and Miss Russell. Both have given very flatter-
ing "first impressions." The Seniors get room
27 for their den.
Oct. 4. The Juniors get room 32 for their happy
home. C. H. S. has a record attendance. Books
and assignments make their debut. The front

As though in a crystal we'll clearly see
Those happy hours dear to you and me.


THE SENIOR PARTY.
By Lilybel Cox, '29.

The invitation to the Senior Party was received
by all classes of Cristobal High School with
great enthusiasm. It came out about o1 days
before the party, and these were spent in pleasant
anticipation.


On Friday night, November 4th, there
assembled at the Masonic Temple a large and
happy crowd. The Seniors, trying to excite
their guests, told them that the orchestra for
the evening was not able to be there. At this
everyone became disheartened.
From eight until nine, the High School Orches-
tra played several selections. Then a soldier from
Fort Davis offered several popular airs and gave
a "Charleston" exhibition.
The real orchestra then arrived. Everyone
was livened up and did his or her best to dance
when Mr. Dwyer and his orchestra gave forth
the "jazzy strains."
In the meantime punch and sandwiches were
welcomed by the guests. Dancing was again
resumed and kept up until 12 o'clock, when
everyone bade the Senior hosts and hostesses
"Good night."


THE JUNIOR PARTY.
By Evelyn Ganzemuller, '3o.

Friday evening, January 6th, the Juniors of
29 gave a clever leap year party at the Masonic
Temple.
The hall was beautifully decorated in the class
colors, blue and gold, and gay colored electric
lights.
As it was a leap year party, the Juniors an-
nounced that the girls would have to ask for
the dances. This caused much mirth among the
guests.
Dwyer's orchestra furnished the music which
was most enjoyable. Mr. and Mrs. Witherspoon
were the chaperons for the evening.
The first part of the evening was spent in
dancing. Later, Roy Walker and James Quinn
gave a humorous duet entitled "Romeo and
Juliet" for which they received much applause.
During the evening, delightful refreshments of
cake and punch were served.
The prize waltz was won by Ethel Westman
and Jack Maher, who were indeed worthy of it.
She received a Parker pencil and he a bill fold.
The remaining part of the evening was spent
in dancing until 11 o'clock when the party ended.
Everyone agreed that it was one of the most
enjoyable parties given this school year.

THE SOPHOMORE PARTY.
By Alice Henter, '30.

The aviators of the Class of '30 of Cristobal
High School gave their annual party on the air-
ship, "The Spirit of the Sophomores," which
started from the Masonic Temple, Friday eve-
ning, February r7th.
One of the aviators met the guests, gave them
a program of the flight and d rected them to the
airship.
The airship was decorated with the aviator's
colors, blue and silver. A large American flag
was draped, with their emblem beneath it.
Little airplanes were hung from the streamers
of blue and silver.
At 8 o'clock the airship left its moorings with
the orchestra playing a lively tune.
An entertainment was given by Aviatress
Eleanor Urwiler, who did the Charleston, and
one of the guests, Mary Bretch, who recited.
During the flight, punch, cake and sandwiches
were served to the weary guests and aviators.
At 12 o'clock the airship again was at its moor-
ings, the guests thanking each aviator in turn for
the lovely flight.

THE FRESHMAN PARTY.
By Joyce Alberga, '31.

"We, the Freshmen, invite you to come
To a costume party at the Washington.
April I3ih is the date.
Be there early for its starts at eight.
There will be a prize fcr the funniest and best,
Be sure to come-we'll do the rest."

Such read the invitations to the delightful
costume ball given by the Freshmen.
There was a very large attendance, and the
music rendered by Dwyer's orchestra was enjoyed
by all. Delicious punch and sandwiches were
served throughout the evening.
The biggest event of the party was the Grand
March. Everyone took part in this. Up and down
the ballroom did they march until the judges decid-
ed who the winners would be. Ma -y Patterson
won first prize fa:- the best costume. She represent-
ed "Little Bo Peep". Ethel Westman won the
prize for the funniest. Her costume of"Kiki" was
very well designed. The boys winning the prizes
were Jack Maher, the "Midshipman," and
Raymond Will, "Our Old-Fashioned School Boy."
MR 10066-9


Another interesting event was the prize waltz
which was won by Mildred Bath and Vincent
Lugli.
Much credit must be given to Miss Moore, the
Freshman Class adviser. It was under her super-
intendence that such a wonderful party was given.

THE SENIOR PLAY.
By Ethel Barnett, '29.
This year's Senior Play, "Cupid Score; a
Touchdown," proved a decided success. Directed
by Mr. Robert Noe, this gay little comedy made a
deep impression on the school backers. Much-
very much-of the credit for this is due Mr. Noe,
for it was only through his indefatigable lab-r,
his admirable casting, that the play was given
as well as it was.
The story revolves around Dulcy Connors,
a charming school girl, whose father is out of
town facing financial difficulties. Bartnn Hawley,
a shady politician, offers to aid him on condition
that Dulcy be part of the bargain. Her sweet,
wise mother, however, takes Barton down a peg or
two. Going to Mrs. Belden-Grey's private school,
Dulcy learns to know Beatrice and Stanley Comp-
ton, who come from a family of culture and gD3d
breeding. Mrs. McNulty, Dulcy's married. sister,
strives to kill Stanley's affection for Dalcy, but
fails. In the end everything turns out splendidly.
Other characters are Betty, Mrs. Conno:s's
trusted maid, Gladys Fluttermore and Chubby
Wriggley. Gladys and Chubby are engaged ani
their clever lines provided much amusement.
Gladys is a sophisticated gold-digger. Chubby is
her much stepped-on prey, and together they
furnish hilarious comedy.
Ethel Westman was very well cast a; Dalcy,
the heroine. She acted just as a gay, but true-
hearted young school girl should act. Jack Klunk
made a true villain. Zonella Bliss, as Mrs. Con-
nors had a heavy part, but she carried it off
admirably. Emma Banks was perfect as the con-
ceited Mrs. McNulty. Mildred Bath and Edward
Lowande, as the gentle, lovely society girl, an I
the college football star, did exceedingly well.
Mrs. Belden-G:e: was well-portrayed by Gladys
Beers. Anita Rankin was adorable as the maiil.
But never did two characters suit their parts as
Kathryn Lambert and Albert Days suited theirs.
Kathryn was Gladys, the gold-digger, and
Albert was her fiance.

THE POPULARITY CONTEST.

April seventeenth was another gala day in
Cristobal High. The students were informed
that there was a popularity contest to be held.
Students were handed blanks to fill in. Pupils
were questioning each other who the best looking
and most popular boys and girls were.

THE CRISTOBAL HIGH SCHOOL
CARNIVAL.
By Ethel Barnett, '29.

To aid the Staff to put forth an honorable
CARIBBEAN, a carnival was held at Fort De-
Lessep's grounds on March 9, 1928. As it has
been before, the carnival was composed of a
Musical Revue, Side Shows, Dancing, a popularity
Ccntest, and Eats.
Many were the thrills the enthusiastic public
received from various side shows. A murderous
N ild Man who escaped; A Three-Ring Dog Show;
and the Missing Link, furnished much excitement.
Heart throbs were increased by the sight of a
Fat Lady, and a strange maiden, Zoma, who


Ballots were collected and counted, and a heated
contest was in progress all during this performance.
The final results of Cristobal High School's
popularity contest were:
Prettiest Girl, Mary Maher.
Best Looking Boy, Jack Maher.
Most Popular Girl, Eleanor Urwiler.
Most Popular Boy, Jack Klunk.

neither ate, drank, walked, talked or slept-
ever. There were other interesting things-
a Fish Pond, where strange to say, every fisher-
man got a "bite." The Musical Revue was
extremely satisfactory. The Popularity Contest
waxed fast and furious in the eleventh hour, but
Miss Pauline Herman was the victorious "Miss
Cristobal High School." Dancing occurred in
the Movie Hall after eleven. The "Eats"
need no mention-the refreshment booth was
crowded at all times.
Due to the cooperation of Colonel Greig and
the personnel of Fort De Lesseps, Cristobal
High School, and the public, the carnival ac-
complished its purpose. It was also a roaring
success.

Cristobal High School Saxophone Band.

THE GIRLS' SAXOPHONE BAND. THE GATUN BOYS' BAND.


This band, which is composed mainly of Cris-
tobal High School girls, is one of the best known
musical organizations on the Isthmus. Mr. Rein-
hold, the director, deserves a great deal of credit
for the excellent training of each girl in the organi-
zation, and for the splendid way in which they
play. Each girl is trained individually, then they
get together twice a week and give the neighbors
a treat.
The Saxophone Band has given many recitals
on the Pacific side as well as on the Atlantic side,
so it is well known and always well received. These
girls were asked to play during the banquet given
for Colonel Lindbergh when he was in Colon,
and they received high praise for this performance.


When we sit back and enjoy the harmonious
music of the Gatun Boys' Band, we forget those
first agonizing do-re-mi's which these young
musicians produced a short time ago. The band
was organized about three years ago through the
efforts of Mr. R. M. Crum, who is now president
of this organization.
At present there are about 40 members in the
band, and, under the very able leadership of Mr.
Meyer Cohen, of Fort Davis, this organization
plays very well and need no longer be considered
amateur.
The Gatun Boys' Band has given concerts on
both sides of the Isthmus and is well known for its
well-balanced and well-presented programs.

SRISTOBAL High School had good fortune this
year to have several excellent men. Some of
whom, greatly to our sorrow, will not be with us next
year. Largely owing to their efforts, we have had a
good year athletically. We did not always win but
we set a good example in sportsmanship, and have
always rendered a good account of ourselves.


Our baseball season this year was a
great success. Our Cristobal boys always
could play ball, and Witherspoon, our
coach par excellence, was loaned to us
by the Navy. The rules of the Twilight
League allowed two big league players
on each team. Witherspoon played with
us the entire season, but the other man
given to us was constantly changing.
Roberts, of the Navy, began the year with
us, but Orsi finished, pitching us to
victory in the final game of the champion-
ship series.
Next year, C. H. S. ball team will be
greatly weakened by the loss of four
players. Greene, our pitcher, has already
gone to the States, and Lowande, Klunk,
and Days will have been graduated. There
will be others to fill their places, of course,
and let us hope they will uphold the
honor of Cristobal High School as their
predecessors have done this year.

Unfortunately our high school represents a rather
small community and we have no wealth of
material to draw from as Balboa High School has.
Our men, by entrance into every kind of sport
and by their hard work and strenuous efforts, have


set an example

BASEBALL.
Feb. II, 1928-Before an immense
throngat "Razzberry" Park, Balboa, Cris-
tobal won the first game of the high school
series, 12 to 10. The game was a free-
hitting affair, Balboa outhitting us 12 to
o1, but their hits were more scattered.
Cristobal's hits came with men on base.
The feature of the game was Hele's drive
into the tennis court in the first inning
with two men on. Later in the game Jack
Klunk hit one into the tennis court, easily
making the circuit.
Cristobal played a great fielding game,
not one error being charged against them
during the entire game. On the other
hand, Balboa seemed to have the weak-
ness of missing them at the wrong time,
eight miscues being made by them. The
chief offender was Wood, who missed
four. The batting honors were grabbed
by Hele of Balboa, who got four clean
hits out of five times up. Russey and
Quinn of Balboa made three apiece. For
Cristobal the feature was Klunk's catch-
ing and his homer into the tennis court.
Lowande made two hits out of four at-
tempts, one of them being a double to
left field.
A special train took almost the entire
school and a large number of other rooters
to Balboa, to cheer for the team. The
girls were the loudest in their cheering,
giving Balboa competition on their own
grounds. The game was half over when
our rooters arrived in force upon the field.
Balboa was taken by surprise; they had
never suspected anything like that.

March 11, 1928-In the second game of
the series, played on the Atlantic side,
Cristobal High School won her second
straight game from Balboa High School,
thereby making a clean sweep of the
series. The game was witnessed by a
crowd of rooters from both sides, who
packed Broadway Park. Balboa had her
force of backers present; having run a
special train. The crowd was given good
music between the innings by the Fort
De Lesseps band.
Things started in the first inning.
Quinn of Balboa, first man up, walked
and scored later on Wood's single to left.
Cristobal also scored in the first inning.
Klunk forced Days at second and then
stole second and scored on Greene's
single to left. Balboa secured another
run in the third inning on Hele's triple.
Hele scored when Lowande fell in catching
Klunk's throw to second.
In the sixth inning Cristobal put the
game safely away. With two men on,

triple. His batting during the series was
hard and timely, he making two homers
and a triple.
The game from this stage on was well
played. Balboa fought hard but was
unable to push runs across the plate.
Thus ended a well-played series, many
of the boys being sorry that more games
were not to be played.
Cristobal High School appreciates the
coaching and advice rendered by Messrs.
Dundon, Picard, and Campbell during
the Cristobal-Balboa series.
Score, Cristobal 6, Balboa 2.

On April 22, Cristobal High School de-
feated Fort De Lesseps by the score of
7 to 3 in a hotly contested game. This
game was the first of a 3-game series
between De Lesseps and the High School
to decide the championship of the Atlantic
Twilight League for 1928. The ideal
weather conditions brought out a large
and enthusiastic crowd of rooters.
Both teams were noticeably nervous in
the early innings. Cristobal, first to bat,


was given one run on errors. De Lesseps
retaliated in their half with a home run,
tying the score. The tie held until the
fourth inningwhen Cristobal scored again.
Klunk hit a three-bagger and came in on a
sacrifice by Witherspoon. By errors on
the part of Cristobal in the field, De Les-
seps in their half raised the score by
two runs. Score, 3 to 2. Hayden's good
work in the box, supported ably by good
fielding, held De Lesseps scoreless the
remainder of the game. A double play
in the seventh, Lowande to Witherspoon
to De Reuter, helped Hayden out of a
difficult hole. The score was again tied
in the eighth, made possible by Klunk's
two bagger. The game was won in the
ninth. With two men on and two out
Wertz hit a homer, making the score 6 to
3. This was followed by another double
by Klunk, who scored on a single by
Witherspoon. This made the score 7 to 3
in Cristobal's favor. De Lesseps failed to
score, dying with three pop flies to Wither-
spoon at short.
I think Hayden, our pitcher, deserves
special mention for this game. He is
new at the business this year, and this
was the first game of real importance he
has pitched for the High School. He was
in hot water several times but he came
through with flying colors.

On April 25, 1928, at 4.30 p. m., Cris-
tobal High School played the second game
of the Atlantic Side Championship Series
with Fort De Lesseps, winning a very
exciting victory by a score of 8 to 6.
This game was very gratifying to the
students and rooters of the High School
not to mention the colored contingent
which was there in force. Our team
throughout the game showed a marked
superiority, even though the luck broke
against us during the first three innings.
In the first half of the firsc inning, De-
Lesseps scored tuo runs, but were stopped
by a double play, Days to Witherspoon.
In our half a run was scored-a homer by
Klunk.
Hayden, over-anxious to win, was not
at his best through these first innings,
and was relieved by Orsi in the fourth.
De Lesseps scored in the second, third,
and fourth innings. When we came to bat
in the 4th, the score was 5 to I against us.
In our half we scored two runs on a hit
and a sacrifice and two errors by De-
Lesseps.
After shutting out De Lesseps in the
fifth, for the first time, we staged the usual
batting rally, scoring four runs. Every-
bodyhit in spite of the fact that De Lesseps
changed pitchers.
The soldiers were again shut-out in the
sixth. We scored one run this inning
on a pass and a base hit.

In the seventh De Lesseps scored their
final run on a three-bagger by Galarza
who was sent home by the umpire because
the ball was fielded by a spectator.

This game was very exciting to the
supporters of the High School team, be-
cause of the poor start. It was later
retrieved by the excellent playing of the
team as a whole.

BASEBALL NOTES.

Mike Greene, our only pitcher, after
winning two games against Balboa, left
us at a critical period in the Twilight
League schedule. Without his pitching
arm and hitting prowess we were left
considerably weakened. Mike was con-
sidered the Twilight League's best pitcher
and was one of the High School's leading
hitters, finishing second among High
School batters, with an average of .314.
Jack Klunk enjoyed the best year of
his High School career, leading the High
School team in batting with an average of
.348, and leading the Twilight League in
runs scored. Jack was considered by far
the best backstop in the Twilight League
and one of the fastest baserunners. He
was also one of the League's home run
hitters, getting two in the Balboa Series.
Lowande, our first baseman, rapidly
picked up from a slow start and ended the
series brilliantly as DeLesseps can testify.
His batting during the second half was
loud and often, and his fielding was steady.
Lowande held the shortstop position dur-
ing the Balboa Series.

Jack Maher, utility second baseman,
was used only in the Balboa Series and
played his position well.
George Wertz, starting out as a rookie
outfielder, soon blossomed into a star
outfielder and was with Klunk the Ruth-
Gehrig twins of the Twilight League.
Wertz led the Twilight League in home
runs.
Albert Days also enjoyed the best year
of his High School career. He developed
into a very dependable fielder. Although
he played third most of the season he was
used in other infield positions very effec-
tively. At bat he was always dangerous
and finished third in the lineup, with an
average of .304.
Walter Wikingstad, our "flaming" out-
fielder, was as all Vikings-steady.
Wicky's fielding was sure and his hitting
was dependable.
Jack Pettit was our flashy outfielder,
his fielding bordering on the sensational.
His hitting was developed during the
second half of the Twilight League season.
Paul Hayden was not able to show his
ability during the first half o the Twilight
League because of Mike Greene, but when
he did enter into the games he showed
enough to assure the team that they had
another pitcher besides Greene.
Kenneth Maurer was used during the
second half because of his sure fielding
and hitting.
Vincent Lugli, our utility infielder, was
not used often enough to show his playing
ability.

real successful season. Our bowlers work-
ed hard at the game and came out victori-
ous against Balboa. The first match was
won by Balboa but we came through with
two decisive victories and by doing so won
the honors against Balboa. The results
are i;s follows:
May 12, 1928, at Balboa-Balboa,
1,233 pins; Cristobal, 1,216 pins.
lMay 19, 192S, at Cristobal.-Balboa,
1,216 pins; Cristobal, 1,260 pins.
June 2, I92S, at Cristobal.-Balboa.
1,165 pins; Cristobal, 1,225 pins.

BASKET BALL.

A large number ofcandidates turned out
for basket ball this season. Six of these
were last-year men-Klunk, Lowande,
Hayden, Days, Lugli, and Babbitt.
These six men practically made up the
High School team.
We played one practice game with the
Chase National Bank and came out vic-
torious-21 to 20.
On May 19, we went to Balboa and
before a large crowd of Balboa's rooters
were badly defeated 40 to 10.
On May 23, Balboa came to Cristobal
and this time before a crowd of our rooters
they defeated us again. This time 50 to
10.
The teamwork of Balboa was fine.
They seemed to know just where every
other fellow was and where he was going.
Our players played more as individuals,
not being able to work together.

TENNIS.
Little interest was taken in tennis.
However, a few boys turned out and
practiced faithfully for the match with
Balboa, which occurred on February 18.
We were handed a severe beating. Gil-
man, of Balboa, showed the best playing.
His hard serve helping much to carry
his team to victory.
The score was 5 to 0.

RESULTS.
I. Gilman and Fidanque (B. H. S.)
defeated H. Mueller and R. Edwards
(C. H. S.). Score, 6-4, 6-3.
2. H. Meredith and J. Humphreys

SWIMMING.
Although new material was plentiful
this year there was not much interest
taken in swimming. An interclass meet
was held April 13, 1928, Junior-Senior
vs. Freshman-Sophomore. Only three
Seniors represented the upper classmen.
However, they were sufficient to defeat
the lower classes, 31 to 13.
On April 21, eight days later, with
hardly any training, our swimming team
went to Balboa to compete in the annu,.l
swimming meet between Balboa High
and Cristobal High. We arrived on the
noon train, and went immediately to the
pool to find the Balboa team ready and
waiting.
Jack Klunk, our aquatic star, was high
point scorer of the day with 19a points.
His closest rivals were Win. Walston and
A. Schwinderman,of Balboa, with 6 point"
each.
The meet was hard fought throughout,
sometimes we forged ahead only to have
Balboa take the lead in the next event.
When the events were ended we were one
point behind, 29-30.

TRACK.
Track started with a bang this year and
on March 3, 1928, at Fort Davis, an inter-
class meet was held, Junior-Senior vs.
Freshmen-Sophomores. The final score
was 66 to 20, the upper classes on the
long end. From the winners of this meet
a track team was chosen to meet Balboa.
On March 17, 1928, we traveled to
Balboa to see what we could do to them.
Our high hopes were soon shattered.
Balboa showed us that she also had some
track men and that they had done some
serious training. High honors were won
by Gayle McGuigan of Balboa, with 11
points. Lowande, of Cristobal, came
second with 8 points. Of the entire meet
we only won one first place, the shot put.
In this, two of our men tied, Klunk and
Lowande.

as Seniors as Golden Age-Freshmen as Stone Age is
clever. A few unfavorable criticisms are: we suggest a
smaller staff. We also recommend using different back-
grounds and arrangements for group pictures. Why do
you not exchange more with schools out of your State?

THE MODERN SHEIK.
(Taken from the Boston Post.)
Blessings on thee, modern sheik,
Millionaire on ten a week,
With thy hatless slickumed hair,
And thy flivver worse for wear-
With thy sweater gaudier still
Than the sunset o'er the hill.
With thy b'loon pants-miles too big-
Thy whole comic valentine rig,
You'll always be an also ran;
I thank the stars I'm not a man.
THE SHEIK'S RETORT.
Blessings on thee, little dame,
Bare of neck and knee the same;
With thy rolled down silken hose,
And thy thin transparent clothes;
With thy pretty made-up face,
And thy bobbed hairs jaunty grace;
With thy red lips reddened more
With thy lipstick from the store;
With all my heart I wish thee joy
But I thank the Lord I was born a boy.

THE CARIBBEAN.




By John G. K/unk, '2S.

"Our sincerest laughter with some pain is trought;
Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thought."

Shelley.



To write the appreciation of the Editorial Staff
of the Cristobal High School annual, The Carib-
bean, and of the Class of '28, to the community,
is a task deserving of another pen than ours;
because it is so real it is difficult to express. The
school and the community are close to each other,
working for the same things, the successful com-
pletion of a high school course for the students,
and high standards for the school.

Not until we are Seniors do we realize what the
community means to the school. When the time
arrives for the staff to start work on The Carib-
bean, to see the printers, to raise funds, to put on
the carnival and class play, to see to the adver-
tising, only then do we realize the kindly interest,
the generous support, and friendship of which each
day brings fresh proof. This is the spirit that
develops our students, brings out their best,
teaches them the meaning of community interest,
understanding, and friendship.



In our games you are with us; if we win, you
knew we could and are glad of it; if we lose, better
luck next time. We are proud of our school, our
faculty, and our community, who have given us
their best.

We wish The Caribbean, the last and greatest
effort of the Class of '28, to carry to you our
warmest and sincerest thanks. Peans of praise
could only tell us, as we have tried to do, of the
share this community has in the welfare of the
students of our school. In graduating honorably
we have in part fulfilled your hopes for us.

Happy, carefree school days are ended; Cris-
tobal High School for us is finished. Well may we
say, "Our sweetest songs are those that tell of
saddest thought." That it pays to be patient
with youth, and to give encouragement when
needed is the lesson we have learned as we too have
needed these helps from the men and women
who are our community.

Mr. William A. Sawyers.

Mr. Sawyers, our principal, has been with us
only this year. He not only handles the respon-

General Science and Economics, not to speak of
being the sponsor of The Caribbean StaiT.

He has instilled in us the school spirit by help-
ing us to give the best carnival that Cristobal
High School has ever had. It was through his
initiative that we had a special train to see
Lindbergh "hop off," and also the train to Balboa
when we won the "flying colors" in baseball.
The success of our annual, our class play, our
graduation, and our many activities is largely
due to his help.

Our Principal has the welfare of our school at
heart. He is the biggest "booster" we have.
We know that Cristobal High School will flourish
under his wise and Iriendlv counsel.

Miss Emily Russell, Household Arts and United

As our Household Arts teacher, she has helped

Jack's middle name must be "success" as he is
a success at whatever he tries. He is an excellent
musician on the cornet, at athletics he's a "whiz,"
a certain proof of his popularity and success in
the fact that he is Editor-in-Chief of The Carib-
bean, and President of the Senior Class.

He does not linger on the ladder of advance-
ment but reaches the top. During his High
School career Jack's name has found a prominent
place in everything he has taken part in, and
those are not few.

As Barton Hawley, the villian in the Senior
play, "Cupid Scores a Touchdown," he is a dash-

Jack is also noted for having a good, clear voice
which has been a great help to our singing groups.

"A" stands for Axtell and also for "arguing"
and the two can easily be spoken of together for
"arguing" seems to be Axie's favorite pastime.
He would make a good debater or lawyer, we feel
sure.

Robert is also an excellent clarinet player and
has played in the High School Orchestra for
two years.

Few of the teachers have ever had to complain
about his work, least of all the mathematics
teacher. For he is unusually quick at under-
standing problems and questions that those less
proficient in this line find puzzling to say the
least. Robert can often be seen helping those
who do not understand the whys and wherefore's

Review" in the Carnival at Fort De Lesseps in
1927 as well.

But singing is not her only talent for Emma

CLASS HISTORY.

By Kalhryti Lambert, '28.




'Sa



Looking back over the history of the Class of
'28, I am reminded of a trip through the Panama
Canal. I seem to see a Phantom Ship bearing the
name Cristobal High School and flying its colors of
purple and gold. In my fancy its crew seem to be
my school fellows, its officers, my teachers. The
Canal represents the four years of training in
High School and each set of locks signifies the
advancements we have made from year to year
in the four classes.

We, the Class of '28, who have successfully
weathered our journey through "The Canal of
Learning" are now out on the sea of "Self Sup-
port," having just passed the "Buoy of Gradua-
tion."

On October i, 1924, we entered "The Break-
water of the Freshman Class." This was a year
of excitement, when we first learned to look down
upon the eighth graders and the grammar school
students.

We noticed many landmarks on our journey to
"The Locks of the Sophomore Class." The most
important was the initiation. Next in line came
the party which we gave tor the whole crew and the
officers of our good ship Cristobal High School.
By the time we reached the "Locks of the Sopho-
more Class" we had lost many of our passengers.
As we passed through these locks the landmarks
became more numerous.

We then continued our journey to the "Locks
of the Junior Class." By the time we reached these
locks our group of passengers had grown smaller
and some of our old passengers had left and new



ones replaced them. At this time our journey
took on a more interesting aspect, as most journeys
do when they are nearing their end. The work
grew heavier for us and new types of work ap-
peared. No one will forget the Junior-Senior
Banquet which our captain, Miss Dodds, told us
was the best she had ever attended in her seven
years as captain of the Cristobal High School.

We slowly passed out of the "Locks of the Junior
Class" only to enter the "Locks of the Senior Class."
The first landmark of importance was the roll
call which made known to us that seven of the
girls and five of the boys who had started on the
journey were still with us and the other boy had
joined us at the "Locks of the Sophomore Class."

At the "Locks of the Senior Class" we changed
captains. The first step which our new captain
took was to organize the staff of The Caribbean.
After these members had straightened out their
affairs, we began to make ready for the Senior
Party. Having passed this landmark we made
ready for the Carnival. We presented "Cupid
Scores a Touchdown" under the able direction of
Mr. Robert Noe. Shortly after this the Junior-
Senior Banquet was the daily topic for discussion.

Day by day the very last landmark of our jour-
ney, the one which marked the end, grew closer,
the "Buoy of Graduation." We began at once to
make ready for embarkation and soon we will be
scattered far and wide, and hope by this history
of the Class of '28 to keep the life of the Class of
'28 fresh in your minds always.

We, the Class of '28 of Cristobal High School,
being about to give up the ghost, and having
been examined and found of sound mind, body,
and memory, do hereby make, and publish and
declare this to be our last will and testament,
before advancing into the unknown future:

To the most aspiring Class of '29 we allot
the lot in "Monkey Hill," Mount Hope Cemetery,
wherein repose the dead and buried privileges of
Seniors, past, and present, mostly past, that the
Class of '29 cherish and place wreaths thereon,
keeping the endeared memory of the deceased
ever green.

Robert Axtell wills his playful ways to Roy
Walker, his eye shade and his arguing to Randolph
Orbaugh, his slow walk to Lilybel Cox, and his

Klioik. "Well, you see it was this way ."

Mrs. Klunk. "All right, let's have the weak
explanation."

Klioik. "You remember Daws, don't you? He
just dropped into New York after a around-the-
world flight. He was out celebrating, so I decided
to celebrate too. We climbed in his plane and took
oft" for a hop down to Birmingham. \Vhen we were
walking up the street Days told me how he had
run into Gladys the last time he dropped off there.
She had married a millionaire, J. Pierpont Morgan
Doolittle, who made his fortune manufacturing
hairpins since long hair came back in 19JO. She
told "Daisie" that Emma was making fine progress
in the law profession. She holds down a job with
a probate court; her main duty is to settle dis-
putes between disinherited relatives."

Mrs. Klunk. "Well, what did you do when
you arrived in Birmingham? Don't trv to avoid
the subject!"

Klunk. "I bought a paper on the way up the
street, and read where .Axtell had constructed a
200-inch telescope, and mounted it on a 'peak
in Darien' to luok for lost planets. Say, by the
way, I heard that down in Panama, Lucia is the
head of an international chain of drug stores;
also down in that neck of the woods, Teddy Hen-
ter is a chemist in the Gatun waterworks. Oh, yes!
Days says that Lowande is a star football player,
learning from experience acquired in the Canal
Zone."

"On his round-the-world flight Days stopped at
the South Sea Islands where Arthur Rothenberg
is engaged in the very profitable business of selling
wooden nutmegs to the unsuspecting natives.
Arthur, of course, is acquainted with Zonella,
who is a missionaary in an adjoining island."

"Kathryn is the head professor in a secretarial
training school. Evangeline runs a rest-cure

GRAND PRIZE SHORT STORY.




^



"Robbers Still at Large." Thus screamed out
the 2-inch headlinea of Colon's morning paper,
T/ie Tribune. The column went on to relate how
two thieves had broken into the Front Street
jewelry store and before the very eyes of the
paralyzed night clerk, had made off with a large
packet of uncut diamonds and were last seen
boarding the night freight for Panama, immedi-
ately after quitting the rear exit of the shop.
The clerk, coming to his senses, had notified the
police, who in turn, stopped the freight at
Gatun, only to be met with no traces of
the escaped criminals. Only one clue had been
attainable. The purser of a large immigrant
ship lying in the harbor had notified the police
of the disappearance of two third-class passen-
gers, and pictures of the same had been forwarded
to the authorities, who had had them published
under the screaming headlines of the aforesaid
Tribune.

Little did Roy Smith of Gatun think of this,
however. Roy was a 13-year old boy in the eighth
grade. He and his chum. Bill Martin, were pre-
paring for a morning's outing in their cayuca upon
the island-dotted waters ot Gatun Lake.

"Well, Bill, we had better put in the canteen
for we might get thirsty, and I don't tavor drink-
ing lake water unless I have to."

"Yeah! That's a safe bet, Roy. You'd better
put a flash light in too, if we are going to board
that old ship. It might be dark down below."

The ship alluded to in this conversation was an
old boat anchored up in the lake. It had been
there a long time, and was put up in an island
cove used as a sort of ship's boneyard.

The two boys put oft' in their cayuca for the
island up the lake. After padtiling for about an
hour the islantl was neared.

"Well, Bill, the old island seems to be about
abeam now."

"Yeah, and our old boat, the Mary F., seems
to be moving right along, too. Well, let's cut
around the point of the island. I know a short
cut, but the channel is full of stumps."



"Well, then. Bill, you come back here and take
the stern paddle and see if you can get through
without hitting about 'steen stumps."

The cayuca sped forward under the renewed
vigor of their strokes. Now and then the boat
would give a roll to one side or would be shoved
ofl^ its course, and a dull scraping noise would be
heard on the bottom, signifying the collision
with a stump. This amounted to nothing worse
than a trifling annoyance, and the boys made fun
out of it by seeing how few stumps they could hit.

"Say, you're some navigator, you are. How
much farther are we going, anyway?"

"Aw, Roy, you just keep your shirt on and
by the time we hit about two more stumps you'll
see the old ship herself."

A few hundred feet more and they were in a
sheltered cove where the old ship lay. She had
been once a good steamer but was now abandoned.
She was open to the caprices of the mild, tropical
weather.

Both of the boys remarked how picturesque
and queer the scene was with massive trees on
the bank nearly overreaching her decks as she
was anchored stem and stern. It seemed strange
that such an example of man's maritime progress
should be seen rotting away in the jungle-
bordered waters of the tropical lake.

There she lay, however, with ferns growing in
the damp corners of her deck and old canvas
awnings flapping in the breeze, while rotten
ropes trailed overboard into the pensive waters
of the lagoon below. On her foremost crosstrees
roosted a lone bird of the jungle, the only sign
of life in the drowsy heat of the landlocked cove.

"Let's tie up here to this ladder in the bow
and we'll go aboard. You can go up first, Bill,"
said Roy.

Bill suggested that Roy go up first as he was
the heavier and the ladder appeared somewhat
rotten. This, however, was only a cover for his
own reluctance to board such a spooky looking
craft.

Both boys were soon aboard her, and although
they spoke in subdued voices, as the situation



THE CARIBBEAN.



41



seemed to demand, they both were eager to see
what the old ship contained.

"Say, Bill," said Roy, "did you notice that
fire ax lying on the deck and those splinters
beside it ? It looks as though someone were aboard,
doesn't it?"

"Righto! But no one comes away out here,
you know."

"Nevertheless I have a hunch that someone
has been here, but we hear nothing of him at
present. Oh, well! We might as well forget
about it," observed Bill. "Let's go into the
forecastle and take a look below to start ofl
with."

Clambering cautiously down into the dimly
lighted forecastle, and brushing aside cobwebs
as they descended, they finally reached the crew's
quarters. On rounding the corner of the bulk-
head they suddenly came upon two rough-looking
men sprawled asleep on the dirty mattresses
spread on the floor. Both of the boys stopped on
tiptoe in blank amazement.

As Bill was the foremost he came to such an
abrupt stop that he braced his hands against the
bulkhead opposite him in such a manner as to
peel off a large cake of rust which fell on the
floor with a crash, awakening the sleepers.

"Schmidt, we're took," shrieked the wider
awake of the two men, "Beat it."

The men dashed down a dark passageway
leading into the forward hold. The thought of
the morning's headlines flashed through the boys'



minds. Instinctively they plunged after them
until they realized the danger of a possible en-
counter with the two men.

"Stop, Bill! They're liable to come back and
kill us if they come to their senses!" exclaimed
Roy, who immediately grasped the situation.

"Let's shut that iron door, and we will have
them."

Summoning all their strength the two boys
managed to swing the ponderous iron door upon
its hinges. Shouts arose from the entrapped
men who realized their desperate plight as they
heard the bolt dropped. The boys rushed out
and climbed over side into the cayuca. Paddling
furiously, they came out into the Gatun-Escobal
launch route. They hailed the first passing
launch, which happened to be bound for Gatun.
In fifteen minutes they were ashore in Gatun
and in another five were aboard the police launch
with the Mary F. in tow, bound for the old ship.

When the police boat reached the cove, the
anchor was dropped, and the boys, followed by
the two officers of the lake police force, jumped
into the cayuca and paddled quickly to the ship,
went into the hold, and after a short scuflle,
brought the men out handcuffed and carried
them aboard the launch.

"Well, boys," said officer Donnelly, "you
have those two robbers who broke into the Colon
jewelry store night before last. They stole a
cayuca and hid aboard the old ship, thinking
themselves sate from discoverv."

AN OLD TIME VISIT TO FORT


SAN


LORENZO.


/^






By Wooiijord Babbitt, '2g.
(Best Junior Story.)






m>


=S^



Stede Bonnet's scarred and weather-beaten
face was very pale as he watched the water
gradually rising. The only light in the room came
from a flickering torch, which threw a ghastly
light over the water. The room in which he was
confined was below the level of the sea, which he
could faintly hear, beating on the rocks in front
of the fort. Fort San Lorenzo.

The hole through which the water was entering
the room was at the level of the sea at low tide.
(The tide rises only a few feet.) .'^s the tide rose
the stream of water increased in size. When the
chamber was filled, Stede would be drowned.



He had been here only a short time and already
the salt water had reached his waist, entirely
covering the stone bench to which he was securely
fastened. The level was gradually rising. His
fate was inevitable.

The c\'ening before. Sir Henry Morgan, the
famous English pirate who was so active around
Panama during the niideUe seventeenth century,
had personally ordered Stede and another man,
Dayton, to go ashore and see if they could gain
entrance to Fort San Lorenzo. They were to
bring him a report as to the strength of the fort,
and the best method of attack.



MR 10066-

THE CARIBBEAN.



They had landed nearly a mile up the coast,
in a small boat, about six o'clock. With a great
dealot hard and dangerous climbing they reached
the moat in the rear of the fort. They lay there
until it grew dark, watching the walls all the time.
There was one place in the wall which seemed to
be lower. It was just where two sentries met,
and was very dark, because the light from the
torches in the sentry boxes did not penetrate
that far. They noticed that the sentries always
stopped at the light at each round, so that there
was an interval oi four minutes during which time
no one was on the wall. Finally, as the guards
parted, Stede and his companion slipped into the
moat. Silently they swam across, gaining the
slight embankment between the wall and the moat,
just as the sentries returned. They lay there,
hardly daring to breathe. When the guards again
departed, Stede, climbing onto his mate's should-
ers, quickly scaled the wall and slid down the
other side. He was the first of many of Morgan's
men who would enter the fort in the next 48
hours.

In a short time he h^id all the information
necessary. Just as he was about to climb the wall
his heavy cutlass hit against a stone, attracting
the attention of the passing guard. The latter
came over to investigate, and Stede struck him
down with a blow from his cutlass. The guards
on the wall, attracted by the confusion, seized
Stede as he attempted to climb it. He was taken
before the Spanish Commander and questioned.
As he had given no information and had been very
disrespectful, he was sentenced to death by



drowning. He was placed in a dungeon for the
rest of the night. In the morning a heavily armed
guard had come and taken him to the death
chamber. Here they left him, and now the water
was gradually rising. In the last half hour he had
noticed that the booming of the surf had increased,
and was now a deafening roar. The water was
up to his shoulders now, and as it crept slowly up-
ward, it made his scalp crawl. He realized that
his end was very near.

Now the water had risen above his mouth;
it would soon cover his nose and cut off all
possible means of breathing. He was straining
against the straps that bound his head, to bury
his face in the water and end the terrible torture.
Suddenly a trap door, directly ove.- his head,
was thrown open and a ladder quickly put down.
His comrade of the night before, spattered with
blood and carrying a smeared cutlass, tumbled
down the ladder, dived into the swirling water
and hurriedly carried Stede up out of the
dungeon. Whey they at last reached the open
air, Stede, dazed and weak, saw that it was not
the surf which had caused the terrible booming,
but that it had been the guns of the pirate ships,
his ships. Everywhere about him were men that
he knew, not Spaniards. While going to report
his strange experiences to his general, he stumbled
over the headless body of the Spanish Com-
mander who had sentenced him to death.

Fort San Lorenzo, an impregnable fortress,
had easily fallen into the hands of Sir Henry
Morgan, just in time to save the life of one of his
most able assistants.

SOLDIERS TWO.

By Helen Lo%an, 'jo.
(Best Sophomore Story.)




I



My DEAR Niece:

If, as you say, you can write a book from my
story I wish you all the luck in the world. I am
trusting to your discretion not to mention the
names of my twin brother and myself, ."^s for the
others, I shall change them to suit my fancy.

You will remember, probably, my reputation
all through college was quite bad. I gambled and
drank continuously, but things went on alright
until my senior year. I was always lucky at cards



and that year someone pulled the old gag about
cheating. I had taken it before, but this particu-
lar person was so insistent that we had a friendly
argument. Then he grabbed a gun and when I
tried to get it away, it went off and shot him.
I was just drunk enough to realize that I had to
get away or ruin the family name and fortune,
as well as Phil's chances. I don't remember wheth-
er there were any witnesses or not, but I knew a
trial would be the last straw. Dad was hard and

I'd have had to leave anyway. Better that
mother should think me just gone.

Of my trip west I haven't the slightest remem-
brance. In San Francisco I enlisted for Panama.
I remember noticing the men in the same group
with me, and it took my mind off my troubles.
They were all different types, but there was only
one who took my fancy. He couldn't have been
seventeen, but I heard him answer to twenty-one.
He was of a slender, athletic build, with a quick
alert look about him, as it he had been through
many experiences in spite ot his youth.

On the boat I sauntered over to where he stood.

"Got a match?"

Without looking at me he put his hand in his
pocket, pulled out a box and handed it to me.
I saw it would be hard to break his reserve,
and the way to do it would be to act as aloof as he.
Before the boat docked we were buddies.

At first everyone grumbled, but we all liked
it after a while. Most of the bunch were old
timers, and I had been through Panama before
several times, on visits, so we knew the place a
little.

From vague sources I had heard that I was sup-
posed to have gone to Canada, to China, to
Nicaragua, to Chicago, to have committed
suicide, to have become a rum runner, and other
such foolish ideas. The papers wrote it all up,
of course, and the "general" was supposed to be
very angry. That did not matter any more. But
the most important thing was always omitted.
I couldn't find out whether the man had been
killed or not.

Then Phil came down. He was an officer in the
Medical Corps, had been through West Point,
and was quite important in army circles,
especially medical. Luckily, I was of a type which
seldom attracts especial attention. He did not
even notice me. He was at an engineer post, and
I was in the infantry, so he never saw me.

One day a group of us went out hunting, my
buddy and I, and three others, who had come down
with us. We had a lo-day pass. At the end of
five days things began to look ugly. The three
others were always watching us with a halt-sly,
wily glance. That afternoon the Kid, as my bud-
dy was called, came to me and said:

"Steve, I'm worried. Martinez and the others
are planning to 'go over the hill.'



After discussing the matter we decided not to
interfere. They could not force us to go. It was
not our place to make them return, except that
we might be accused of aiding them to escape.

On the sixth day they told us. We had started to
turn back, but they said that they would need all
the provisions. Plainly, we would go with them
or starve. A native was to guide them along the
coast to Costa Rica; from there boats would
take them to different ports.

No one thought about or questioned our past,
but the Kid had evidently had some experience
with affairs of this type. He motioned me to be
quiet.

"We'll go on for a way. At least till we can get
some provisions."

It went over pretty well. That night we stop-
ped at a native shack that had been deserted.
By the time we had eaten and the fire was dying
into embers in the clearance, lighting up the
grim, surrounding jungle, our plans had been
made.

As we sat in a circle waiting, the quietness
grew oppressive, the oppressiveness grew tense,
and finally the Kid nudged me, at the same time
rising and strolling into the hut. There is a great
deal in taking a situation psychologically. Every-
thing was done casually. I pulled the pipe out
of my mouth, knocked the ashes out.

"Well, it looks like the Kid and I would turn
back to-morrow."

The big Swede, Arisen, was on his teet.

"Vat! You tink you take dose grub?"

It was threatening. Farman growled, "Shut
up, let me handle this," as he pulled the Swede
down.

Then I heard a voice behind me, and its cool
tones made me wonder just how much the Kid
woukl mind killing a few people.

"If you gentlemen will be so good as to remain
seated, perhaps we can discuss this quietly."

He was handling a pretty little automatic and
leaning coolly against the door. The Swede jump-
ed and stared open-mouthed at the gun.

"Private property. Comes in handy some-
times, you know," the Kid explained. Then
sharply, "we're going back, and you're coming
along. If you want to 'go over the hill,' wait
until we're not along."

Just for an instant I saw Farman look side-
ways with a malicious smile. From inside the

hut a knife appeared, and the hand that held it was
one I had never seen before. 1 fired, the Kid fired
over my shoulder, and as I wheeled instinctively,
I saw Martinez fall and Farman pull a Colt
automatic from somewhere.

The scene, as I remember it before I went
down, impressed itself indelibly on my mind. The
Swede stood out plainest in the savage surround-
ings, because of his tall, huge frame as well as his
fairness of complexion. The coals were almost
out, and only a faint glow illuminated the scene,
lighted up the dark green of the jangle, and dis-
closed the body of Martinez who had fallen with
the knife still clutched in his hand. There was a
heavy, sweet odor of tropical flowers, and after a
last report, I remember remarking to Farman,
who still crouched with a heavy, smoking gun.

" Well, I'll see you later, old chap," as I shot
for the last time.

Then I must have been unconscious for some
time, and when I awakened, I was in the hos-
pital, and Phil was leaning over my bed. He
smiled the old familiar smile that was typical
of his quiet way. I've learned to love that smile,
and I knew the game was up.

"Steve, you certainly had it over on us, didn't
you?"



Sir?

"None of that. Dad bought you out yester-
day."

"Pardon, sir, but I don't understand."

"Never mind. The boy didn't die, and besides,
young Hampton had been watching from the
window."

Then I must have cried. Phil held my head
saying, "You poor kid. We were almost too late."

Once a year, now, Phil and the Kid, now
Second Lieutenant A. J. Weseley, and I haveasort
of reunion. As an .Army Chaplain, I am very
happy, and when you and young Weseley are
married, I'll be as contented as an old man can
be. Phil is a famous surgeon now, and since you
are his niece, there will be a church full of im-
portant people at your wedding.

Your husband-to-be is very brave, but very
bashful. I'll leave him the task of explaining how
we cleared his record and sent him through the
academy. Also you must find out from him how
he held off the others, and took care of me until
Phil and his men arrived. Now, my dear, I must
go to see some of the men in the hospital.

Your devoted uncle,

Father Stephen, S. J.

THE CAPTURE OF OLD PANAMA.

By Fabian Englander, 'j/.
(Best Freshman Story.)




-m



Governor Arias had received a note from
Morgan saying that he would appear within the
year and that he would take the city. Morgan
had just captured Fort San Lorenzo. Since I was
a personal friend of the governor, he told me that
he was very worried. He at once sent out an
order for stronger fortifications and more soldiers.
The work of fortifying the city and training the
men went on speedily. Ships, laden with gold
from Peru, were coming into port every few days.
Soon, however, the ships coming in told of the
hard time they had keeping away from the
F^nglish. Finally, one day, news was brought to
us that Morgan was coming. The governor was
very distressed, but nothing happened in the
next few days so we thought no more of it.
Months passed and still no sign of Morgan.



(I learned afterwards that he had taken his
ships apart on the Atlantic side and had crossed
over by land to the Pacific side and had put them
together on Taboga Island.)

Four months passed when finally we saw four
English ships come into the harbor. They
started firing at us and we fired back. Our men
were soon frightened as the English were pretty
good marksmen. They had blown big holes in
the Cathedral where many people had gathered
to pray.

I ordered my few belongings taken to a cave
just outside the city. The governor, by this time,
was panic stricken. The guns in our forts, which
hati been booming for some time, suddenly
stopped firing. Our men came pouring out of the
forts saying that the English had blown our guns

to pieces. By this time the people were leaving
the city and it was getting dark. The governor
placed a heavy guard over on the city walls.

The monks were taking the silver and gold
from the churches and burying it in the secret
underground tunnels. The rich Spaniards, after
turning their valuables over to the monks, were
buying up mules and horses and escaping in the
direction of Porto Bello and some of the interior
settlements.

The next morning, when I went to the gov-
ernor, he said that he wanted me to command
the left wing of the army. He had the soldiers
already lined up. I proposed staying inside the
walls of the city, for I knew that Morgan could
not have many men, but he refused, and when we
saw the English advancing, we went out in army
formation to meet them. We had some natives
drive bulls at the enemy, bur the bulls broke loose
and scattered. The fighting began. My men
fought bravely for a while, but when thev saw
the other wing had fled and they were being
surrounded, they turned and fled toward the
city. A large number of them were taken
prisoner and killed. I escaped because I had
hidden in the cave.

The governor had been killed during the battle
so there was no one to govern the people. The
English began to loot and to torture the people.
They killed the monks outright if they did not tell
were they had hidden the gold. They took some
of the richer people for ransom. After much
plundering, the English set fire to the city.

The next day I thought everything was all right
so I left my cave. The city had been burned to
the ground. As I came into the public square
who should I see but Morgan and his men. I saw
at once that it was useless to try to escape, so
I was taken prisoner. Horrible thoughts flashed
through my mind as to how he would kill me.

It was a long tiresome trip across the Isthmus.
We had very little food and the Indians were
constantly shooting at us. At last we reached



Porto Bello. We were all taken on board the
ships and put in chains until we should be ran-
somed. That night was a miserable one for me.
The next morning Morgan came to our ship.
They had on board i6 monks who were trying
to get someone to ransom them. They asked
Morgan to let them go and to hoKi a rich girl
instead. When he heard this, he ordered every
one of them to be killed and had their heads
hung up on the ship's yards. I thought my turn
would be next, but it didn't come. Morgan
ordered the girl to be given a sum of money
and an escort to take her across to Panama City.

When they came to take me back downstairs
they told me that I would be killed at sunset
the next day if some one did not ransom me.
They only had one man on guard that night
as there were only a few of us left. I found a piece
of file by my side antl was soon at work getting
the rusted chain ofl-" my leg. This did not take
very long. I then got my knife from my belt and
waited until the guard came. As it was dark he
could not see me and I soon had him laid out on
the deck. I pulled him in behind some of the
chests and after putting on his clothes, I waited
for morning. At daybreak I went on deck and
asked the captain for a boat to go ashore. He
gave it to me after I promised him part of my
supposed plunder. I had not gotten more than
a thousand yards when I heard the report of a
pistol. I knew, then, that I was discovered so I
rowed as hard as I could. I did not wait for the
boat to ground. I jumped from it and ran
toward the jungle. I heard the shots whizzing by,
but none of them more than grazed me. I hid up
a tree until it was dark fearing that some of
my pursuers might be around.

At about eight o'clock I started for Panama
City, \^'hen I reached the city, I found that the
few inhabitants who remained had decided to
move to another place seven miles away. They
thought that the new place could be more strongly
fortified.

ALL HAIL! COLONEL LINDBERGH!

By Emma Banks, '2S.




-m



All, on entering Cristobal school this morning
of mornings, January 26, 1928, were greeted with
an air of intensify a feeling of excitement and
expectancy. Quickly the joyous news reached
every ear. "We're going to France Field on a
special train to see Lindbergh hop oif!"

The graded school marched in files. The High
School was left to take its own course. Some
skipped, some ran. Breathlessly they climbed
the train, and soon the long line of cars pulled
out with laughing, singing, chattering children.

At France Field all interests concentrated upon
catching the first glimpse of their hero. Soon a
Douglas transport plane landed. Colonel Lind-



bergh had taken eight "lucky" people up.' 'Midst
clicking cameras and straining eyes, Lindbergh
climbed out and calmly walked to the hangar
where the "Spirit of St. Louis" was.

Then the gates of the hangar were thrown
wide and soldiers pushed "The Spirit" on to the
field.

Again the "Idol of the Air" made his entrance.
After the mechanic had tried the motor, Lindy
donned his aviator's helmet, shook hands with a
few of his personal friends, and climbed in.
Shortly, he waved good-bye to the eager throng,
glided across the field and into his kingdom the
atmosphere.



BANANAS GWINE BY.

By Joyce Alberga, j/.

"Bananas! Bananas! Ripe bananas gwine by!
Come missus, tek a look! Bananas! Six fo' a
nickel; 12 fo* a dime!"

Such is the cry of an old colored woman selling
bananas to make a living.

She lives in a large tenement house in one of
the many alleys of Colon. Every morning rain
or shme, she rises at 5 o'clock in order to
begin her sale of bananas before anyone else.

Her clothes are always clean, but of course not
all of the latest fashion. On her head she wears
a piece of soiled cloth wound around it, somewhat
like a coolie turban. This is necessary because on
it she carries a big board in the form of a waiter.
It is filled with ripe bananas. She carries it on
her head all day, and never once does it fall.
It is really remarkable.

When Mammy, as she may be called, finds a
customer she is very pleased and talks the whole
time that she is selling. Her conversation may be
heard to be "Yes, Mum, dey his lufly dis
marnin'. Oh! hain't you going to take more
than that? Please, Missus, dey really ham
nice. Dere, das a good lady. I'se gwine to
give her hextra fo' dat. Good-bye and tank
you Mum. Hi'U come agin timmarrah."



THE TOM-TOMS.

By Arthur Rolherihiirg, '28.

Night after night I heard it. Always the
same irregular cadence of knockings coming from
off in the distance. Somehow, it always sug-
gested someone hitting on wood.

Whenever I heard it, romantic fancies of savage
Indians far ofl^ in the dense Jungles beating on
tom-toms and performing their wild dances would
come to my mind.

One night I heard the sound louder than usual.
It seemed to come from an island a short distance
from shore. Hurriedly seizing a flash light, I
rushed to the beach. \t first I heard nothing;
then to my hearing came the same irregular
rythm of wooden thumps, but this time followed
by mighty splashes.

Upon looking closely in the direction of the
noise, I perceived a dark, moving blur on the
water. It moved in a large circle, and finally
approached the beach where I stood.

Turning my light on it, it proved to be a
cayuca containing several fishermen, who had
been laying a seine. When I inquired the source
of the knocking and splashes, I was told that
fisherman when laying seines always beat on the
boat and water with their paddles to scare the
fish into the seine.

So perished my fancies of Indians, jungles, and
drums.

PEACE DECLARED.

By Lilybel Cox, '2g.
(Honorable Mention.)




=a



"Ah, land at last!" So exclaimed Jim Thorpe,
looking through the porthole upon the outline of
the land which was to be the home of his new
adventures. He was anxious to make a success of
the work which might place his name among the
foremost engineers of the day.

The commercial world demanded the exchange
of products between east and west in the shortest
possible time. Thus the project of the Panama
Canal. And young Jim was one of the engineers
detailed to work on the locks of the great water-
way.

After the strenuous work of drawing plans,
organizing details, and assembling materials,
Jim began to feel the need of companionship.
The monotony of the tropical heat by day and the
cries from the jungle by night did not furnish
enough excitement.

One day while wandering among the interesting
ruins of old Panama, he had a misfortune to fall
and hurt his ankle. While sitting on the ground
wondering what to do next, he heard voices.
Glad that some human beings were in calling
distance, he shouted for help. Much to his relief
a party of fine people soon loomed in sight.
Don Pedro, his daughter, Rosita, and his two
sons and their guide were returning from a fishing
trip. The injured man was carried on a hastily
made stretcher to their ranch house.

The injury, although not severe, kept him in
bed for several days. Every kindness was shown
him by his host and many a pleasant hour was
whiled away in teaching the young senorita to
understand the English language.

After his recovery he returned to his work but
not before he promised to come and see his bene-
factors. Many happy week ends were spent at
the ranch and the friendship soon became a
lasting one.



One morning the overseerreceivedan unusually
large quantity of mail. Among the letters was an
official envelope bearing Thorpe's name. The
news it contained was both delightful and dis-
appointing. He had been promoted and this
meant his going back to the States. His new field
of work was to be in the Mississippi Valley. The
next day he went to bid his new friends farewell.
It was hard to say good-bye and Rosita's sorrow
was not hidden.

His work in the States lasted for several years.
Then came the anxious exciting days of the World
War. Thorpe was one of the first of America's
youths to rally to the Colors. After a few months
of hurried drills at training camp his company
was sent overseas.

During the gloomy, dreary days of the tall of
1 91 7, while some soldiers were working on a
bridge, a bomb dropped from a German plane,
damaging the bridge and taking a heavy toll of
lite and injuring many.

Thorpe was severely wounded and was knock-
ed unconscious. When he awakened he found
himself in a field hospital. It seemed that he
dreamed of a cool hand placed on his feverish
brow. It was in reality for an angel of mercy was
standing near murmuring, "Oh, Jim! Do you not
remember your old friend?" He stared and tried
to recall, but, soon exhausted, he fell into a
swoon-like sleep.

The next morning the angel said, "It is more
serious than the injury to your ankle, but I
hope to have the same success in making you
well." Then he remembered! "Rosita, you
have twice been my benefactress. I hope some
day to reward you." She only smiled in answer.

.'\fter peace was declared a ship bound for
Panama carried Mr. and Mrs. Thorpe on their
honeymoon.

It had been raining for three weeks without

THE OLD HIGHWAY.

By Roger Deakins, '2g.

Among the many traces of ancient Spanish
occupation of Panama, left by the bold con-
quistadores, is the Las Cruces Road. Once a
well-traveled roadway, winding among the hills
and the dank fever-breeding swamps, stretching
from the massive walls of Old Panama City to
the beautiful harbor of Porto Bello. On this
highway, murder and thievery ran as unrestrained
as the luxuriant tropical jungle growth which
now almost completely obliterates it. Great
trees have grown in the road and their grasping
roots have dislodged the cobblestones in such a
manner that the parts of the road that can be
seen are barely recognizable. Once the air
tinkled with the sound of silver bells attached
to the pack mules that formed the gold train.
Now the harsh sound of the parrot's scream and
the squeak of a lizard as it scuttles over the blocks
are the only sounds heard, and the old road lies
and dreams of past days.

TOURISTS IN COLON.

By Margair! Hnycs, '2g.

I.

One sunny morning in the city of Colon,
There came a group of tourists to town,
Buying shawls, beads, and all sorts of things,
Fit even tor the greatest ot kings.



One little woman, short and fat,
Wearing a plaid coat and large black hat.
Pulls off her gloves, and gives a sigh,
"I don't see how they stand the heat!
Oh, mv!"



"Now isn't this a most gorgeous shawl?"
To her husband whispers a lady tall.
"Yes, yes, dear, but don't forget my advice
Never should one pay the first price."

4-

"Mother, mother, I want this box;
Look how it opens, and just how it locks.
First one has to find the key!
Mother, I want it. Oh, Jiminy Gee!"



One old gentleman, perspiring with heat.

Looks at the cigarette holders, while taking a seat.

"It is just the kind for you, Meester."

"Forme? No, no. For my sister."

6.

" \nA. what is that queer animal's name?"
"Oh, he's the ant eater of great, great fame."

Comes from the jungle, not far from here.

He's dead, Miss, please have no fear."

7-

"Buy a lottery ticket," the vendors cry,
"Six is the number for the lucky guy.

Tink ob de gran surprise

When you wins de big first prize."



"Say, there goes the Panama Railroad train.
And now, my gracious, 'tis beginning to rain.
I never did see such a dirty place.
Why look at that negro's good-natured face."



Two young chaps in a hat store
Are trying on Panama hats galore.
"I know the weakness of we males.
But I think I resemble the Prince ot Wales!"



There passes us, a foreign man,
A bunch of bananas in his hand.
He calls to his mate to hurry up.
Who growls in answer, ".Aw, shut up."



In a carametta, a curio of this town.
Sat two old ladies, riding up and down.
-And enjoying themselves, forgetting th heat
.'\nd thought the ride was such a treat.



"Come, come, 'tis late; we must haste.
Back to the boat; there's no time to waste,
You know the boat will soon be leaving,
As it is scheduled to leave at six this evening.'

If you should wish to have some fun,
Go watch the tourists, every one.
When they visit this (air little town
Called the City of Colon.



IF I WERE A POET.

I wish I were a poet.
With gift ot thought sublime;
The kind who put elusive words
In magic verse and rhyme.

I'd write of the little golden stars.

Or the moon like a beautiful lady.
Who goes slowly floating by.

Oh, I would write such interesting things

That nature tells to me;

And could write it well, you see.)

But I am not a poet.
And my words sound stiff and dry.
So I think I'll put aside my pen
And let another trv.

The skies are aflame with red and gold,

And shadows now are creeping.

The palm trees ne.ir by the sea
Look black against the evening sky,
.And seem to whisper tales of old
As the close of the day is drawing nigh.

The waters of the open sea

Sing songs of mystery to me,

.And blackbirds now do cease their call

As the shades of night finally fall,

GLIMPSES OF LIMOX BAY.
By Vila Lyew, '2g.

I sit upon the old wall by the sea
Watching the children at their play,
And the large waves coming toward me
Forgetful ot the sun's scorching ray.

.\x. evening still you find me there
When slowly the sun sinks,
Coloring the wall with its flare
And dyeing the bay with pinks.

The sunset must gradually fade away
Into the splendor of the night;
The children in their little beds lay,
.And the bay glistens in the moonlight.

The lighthouse across the bay

Flashes out its ever faithful light

To guide the ship on its way

And emphasize the darkness of the night.

The tiny stars begin to shine
Like diamonds 'gainst the sky so blue,
.And the wan white moon divine
Whose radiance lights the heart so true.

How calm and serene life seems
With all these beauties rare,
As if painted by an artist in his dreams
When freed from all sorrow and care.

Far from the city's madding roar

I revel in my quietude and dream.

The nearby chimes announce the late hour

-And start me from my dream.

And as I homeward turn sleepily
The waves their adieu bid
The chimes are pealing sweetly,
Of human life the wall is rid.



ODE TO FORT SAN LORENZO.

By Robert Jxtell, '28.

Peace to thee, thou noble ruin;

Long ma\" we see thee stand

.Above the rocks, above the dune,

.Above the coral strand.

With crumbling walls and long dried moat,

.And cannon now in rust.

Thou listenest to the breaker's note,

To whispering palm trees hushed.

Oh, Glory of the Spaniard's fame.

Who fixed thy stones so high;

Their glory now is but a name.

But yours still brooks the sky.



A TRIO FROM THE ISTHMUS.

By Basil Frank, 'ji.

"Ripe bananas! Ripe bananas!
A dozen fo' a dime.
Dese am nice ones, lady
Fo' 1 sell dem all de time."

It's the old banana lady
With her tray upon her head.
I hear her early in the morning
When I am still in bed.

There is also the bootblack
With his "Shine, Mister? Shine?"
He'll clean your shoes up nicely
For the small cost of a "dime."

He's always around by the barber's
Where he finds a ready fee.
Sometimes he gets a five cent tip,
Then he's happy as can be.

Another one who is never sure

If he's going to get a dinner.

Is the age-bent driver of the orange cart.

His eyes have long lost their glimmer.

He may be seen in the morning
.Apushing his cart along;
And if a "cochero" blocks his way
He rings his home-made gong.

They are just a few of the many

Who have lived on the Isthmus so long

The banana lady, the bootblack.

And the orange-cart man with his gong.

But let me tell you something.
Of which you do not know.
These people are always satisfied.

They smile wherever they go.



OUR HIGH SCHOOL BOOK,
"THE CARIBBE.AN."

flv Mary Bretch, 'jr.

.A book of memories so fond and dear.
Of reminiscences you love to hear;
Of sports, alumni and literature too,
The fun and joy we've all passed through.

When other roads you travel, and new friends you meet,
Ponder oft' thoughts of childhood days so sweet.
Remember, yes! Remember the good old days of yore.
So gayly spent at Cristobal High on the Caribbean shore.

DAY-DREAMS.

By Basil Ftaiiky 'ji.

While sitting down beside a stream,

I watched the clouds. They began to seem

Like the things upon the earth below.

On this land long, long ago.

I saw a castle in the air;

1 saw a lady in despair;

The castle stood on running sands

In the land of caravans.

.And there a knight of the Table Round,

Stood below upon the ground,

Fighting bravely for to save

His lady from an .Arab knave.

When this scene from before me flew.

The deep wide ocean came to view.

There was a ship with all sails set

Going where the trade winds met.

It was a Spanish ship I saw;

Its splendor filled my soul with awe.

But what ship follows in its wake?

A vessel captained by Francis Drake!

Then I saw a flash of flame;

A roar as from a giant came;

Both ships disappeared from view,

And the scene was changed to something new.

I saw a scene, a scene of peace

In the lovely land of Greece.

A young man though his arm lacked brawn.

Was carving the figure of "September Morn."

He cut a smile upon her lips;

.\ graceful curve upon her hips;

The face was tilted in the air;

Wavy and curly was the hair.

The spell then broke, the apell of the dream,

And I found myself beside the stream.

All these things I had composed

From the clouds as I sat there and dozed.



PERPLEXITY.

By Elsie Darley, 'jo.

What shall I write about?

What shall it be?

These questions I'm stating

-Are bothering me.

What sort of language and

What sort of rhyme?

Dear me, I am having

A troublesome time.

The more things to choose from

The harder the choice.

The sooner I've finished

The sooner I voice

My relief at just dropping

This burdensome job.

And write like the rest

Of the prose-writing mob.

A poet is born, and not made.

So they say;

.And now I'll discreetly retire

For to-dav.



THE LOCKS AT .\IGHT.

By Ruth Duvall, jf.

Have you seen the locks at night?
They are a very wondrous sight.
With great ships passing to and fro,
Going to lands we do not know.
And many lights along the way.
Standing there like sent'nels grey.
Seem to beckon you at sight.
To come and see the locks at night.



THE PALM TREES.
By David Kelchum, 'j/.

You see them standing

In the sunlight.
Tall and proud, showing

Their royal might.
You see them on the borders

Ot the romantic lagoon.
Bending and bowing while silhouetted

-Agiinst the moon.
You'll see them in the jungles

Where Morgan hid his gold.
Standing o'er all the trees.

Like sentinels of old.
If under tropical sun you have

Chanced to live.
Surely you'll appreciate the shade

This graceful tree gives.

ALUMNI.

The Alumni Department of The Caribbean continues to grow. Each year
a dozen or more names are added to the ever-lengthening list. This year we
have passed the hundred mark. Cristobal High School has loi graduates.
Nearly half of these are still on the Isthmus. Several of them have visited us
at school. We are always pleased to see them and hope that they as well as those
who are in the States, will continue to be interested in C. H. S. and its activities.

And many's the time we'll look behind,

As though in a crystal we'll clearly see

Those happy hours dear to you and me.



THE SENIOR PARTY.

By Lilybet Cox, '2g.

The invitation to the Senior Party was received
by all classes of Cristobal High School with
great enthusiasm. It came out about 10 days
before the party, and these were spent in pleasant
anticipation.



On Friday night, November 4th, there
assembled at the Masonic Temple a large and
happy crowd. The Seniors, trying to excite
their guests, told them that the orchestra for
the evening was not able to be there. At this
everyone became disheartened.

From eight until nine, the High School Orches-
tra played several selections. Then a soldier from
Fort Davis offered several popular airs and gave
a "Charleston" exhibition.

The real orchestra then arrived. Everyone
was livened up and did his or her best to dance
when Mr. Dwyer and his orchestra gave forth
the "jazzy strains."

In the meantime punch and sandwiches were
welcomed by the guests. Dancing was again
resumed and kept up until 12 o'clock, when
everyone bade the Senior hosts and hostesses
"Good night."



THE JUNIOR PARTY.

By Evelyn Ganzemuller jo.

Friday evening, January 6th, the Juniors of
'29 gave a clever leap year party at the Masonic
Temple.

The hall was beautifully decorated in the class
colors, blue and gold, and gay colored electric
lights.

As it was a leap year party, the Juniors an-
nounced that the girls would have to ask for
the dances. This caused much mirth among the
guests.

Dwyer's orchestra furnished the music which
was most enjoyable. Mr. and Mrs. Witherspoon
were the chaperons for the evening.

The first part of the evening was spent in
dancing. Later, Roy Walker and James Quinn
gave a humorous duet entitled "Romeo and
Juliet" for which they received much applause.

During the evening, delightful refreshments of
cake and punch were served.

The prize waltz was won by Ethel Westman
and Jack Maher, who were indeed worthy of it.
She received a Parker pencil and he a bill fold.

The remaining part of the evening was spent
in dancing until 1 1 o'clock when the party ended.
Everyone agreed that it was one of the most
enjoyable parties given this school year.

THE SOPHOMORE PARTY.

By Alice H enter, '30.

The aviators of the Class of 30 of Cristobal
High School gave their annual party on the air-
ship, "The Spirit of the Sophomores," which
started from the Masonic Temple, Friday eve-
ning, February 17th.

One of the aviators met the guests, gave them
a program of the flight and d rected them to the
airship.

The airship was decorated with the aviator's
colors, blue and silver. A large American flag
was draped, with their emblem beneath it.

Little airplanes were hung from the streamers
of blue and silver.

At 8 o'clock the airship left its moorings with
the orchestra playing a lively tune.

An entertainment was given by Aviatress
Eleanor Urwiler, who did the Charleston, and
one of the guests, Mary Bretch, who recited.

During the flight, punch, cake and sandwiches
were served to the weary guests and aviators.

At 12 o'clock the airship again was at its moor-
ings, the guests thanking each aviator in turn tor
the lovely flight.

THE FRESHMAN PARTY.

flv Joyce Alberga, 'jr.

"We, the Freshmen, invite you to come
To a costume party at the Washington.
.'\pril ijih is the date.
Be there early for its starts at eight.
There will be a prize fcr the funniest and best,
Be sure to come we'll do the rest."

Such read the invitations to the delightful
costume ball given by the Freshmen.

There was a very large attendance, and the
music rendered by Dwyer's orchestra was enjoyed
by all. Delicious punch and sandwiches were
served throughout the evening.

The biggest event of the party was the Grand
March. Elveryone took part in this. Up and down
the ballroom did they march until the judges decid-
ed who the winners would be. Ma y Patterson
won first prize fj- the best costume. She represent-
ed "Little Bo Peep". Ethel Westman won the
prize for the funniest. Her costume of "Kiki" was
very well designed. The boys winning the prizes
were Jack Maher, the "Midshipman," and
Ravmond Will, "Our Old-Fashioned School Boy."



Another interesting event was the prize waltz
which was won by Mildred Bath and Vincent
Lugli.

Much credit must be given to Miss Moore, the
Freshman Class adviser. It was under her super-
intendence that such a wonderful party was given.



THE SENIOR PLAY.

By Ethel Burnett, '21).

This year's SeniDr Play, "Cupid Scores a
Touchdown," proved a decided success. Directed
by Mr. Robert Noe, this gay little comedy m.ade a
deep impression on the school backers. Much
verv much of the credit for this is due Mr. Noe,
for it was only through his indefatigable labor,
his admirable casting, that the play was giv;n
as well as it was.

The story revolves around Dulcy Connors,
a charming school girl, whose father is out of
town facing financial difficulties. Barton Hawley,
a shady politician, offers to aid him on condition
that Dulcy be part of the bargain. Her sweet,
wise mother, however, takes Barton down a peg or
two. Going to Mrs. Belden-Grey's private school,
Dulcy learns to know Beatrice and Stanley Comp-
ton, who come from a family of culture and good
breeding. Mrs. McNulty, Dulcy's married sister,
strives to kill Stanley's afl^ection for DjIcv, but
fails. In the end everything turns out splendidly.

Other characters are Betty, Mrs. Connors's
trusted maid, Gladys Fluttermore and Chubby
Wriggley. Gladys and Chubby are engaged ani
their clever lines provided much amusement.
Gladys is a sophisticated gold-digger. Chubby is
her much stepped-on prey, and together they
furnish hilarious comedy.

Etliel Westman was very well cast as Daley,
the heroine. She act;J just as a gay, bat true-
hearted young school girl should act. Jack Klunk
made a true villain. Zonella Bliss, as Mrs. Con-
nors had a heavy part, but she carried it off
admirably. Emma Banks was perfect as the con-
ceited Mrs. McNulty. Mildred Bath and Edward
Lowande, as the gentle, lovely society girl, an 1
the college football star, did exceedingly will.
Mrs. Belden-G:e7 was well-portrayed by Gladys
Beers. -Anita Rankin was adorable as the maii.
But never did two characters suit their pa-ts as
Kathryn Lambert and .Albert Days suited theirs.
Kathryn was Gladys, the gold-digger, and
Albert was her fiance.

THE POPULARITY CONTEST.

April seventeenth was another gala da>- in
Cristobal High. The students were informed
that there was a popularity contest to be held.

Students were handed blanks to fill in. Pupils
were questioning each other who the best looking
and most popular boys and girls were.



Ballots were collected and counted, and a heated
contest was in progress all during this performance.
The final results of Cristobal High School's
popularity contest were:

Prettiest Girl, Mary Maher.
Best Looking Boy, Jack Maher.
Most Popular Girl, Eleanor LIrwiler.
Most Popular Boy, Jack Klunk.

THE CRISTOBAL HIGH SCHOOL
CARNIVAL.

By Ethel Burnett, '29.

To aid the Staff to put forth an honorable
Caribbean, a carnival was held at Fort De-
Lessep's grounds on March 9, 1928. As it has
been before, the carnival was composed of a
Musical Revue, Side Shows, Dancing, a popularity
Contest, and Eats.

Many were the thrills the enthusiastic public
received from various side shows. A murderous
^^ ild Man who escaped; A Three-Ring Dog Show;
and the Missing Link, furnished much excitement.
Heart throbs were increased by the sight of a
Fat Lady, and a strange maiden, Zoma, who



neither ate, drank, walked, talked or slept
ever. There were other interesting things
a Fish Pond, where strange to say, every fisher-
man got a "bite." The Musical Revue was
extremely satisfactory. The Popularity Contest
waxed fast and furious in the eleventh hour, but
Miss Pauline Herman was the victorious "Miss
Cristobal High School." Dancing occurred in
the Movie Hall after eleven. The "Eats"
need no mention the refreshment booth was
crowded at all times.

Due to the cooperation of Colonel Greig and
the personnel of Fort De Lesseps, Cristobal
High School, and the public, the carnival ac-
complished its purpose. It was also a roaring
success.

Cristobal High School Saxophone Band.



THE GIRLS' SAXOPHONE BAND.

This band, which is composed mainh' ot Cris-
tobal High School girls, is one of the best known
musical organizations on the Isthmus. Mr. Rein-
hold, the director, deserves a great deal of credit
for the excellent training of each girl in the organi-
zation, and for the splendid way in which they
play. Each girl is trained individually, then they
get together twice a week and give the neighbors
a treat.

The Saxophone Band has given many recitals
on the Pacific side as well as on the Atlantic side,
so it is well known and always well received. These
girls were asked to play during the banquet given
for Colonel Lindbergh when he was in Colon,
and they received high praise tor this performance.



THE GATUN BOYS' BAND.

When we sit back and enjoy the harmonious
music of the Gatun Boys' Band, we forget those
first agonizing do-re-mi's which these young
musicians produced a short time ago. The band
was organized about three years ago through the
efforts of Mr. R. M. Crum, who is now president
of this organization.

At present there are about 40 members in the
band, and, under the very able leadership of Mr.
Meyer Cohen, of Fort Davis, this organization
plays very well and need no longer be considered
amateur.

The Gatun Boys' Band has given concerts on
both sides of the Isthmus and is well known tor its
well-balanced anil well-presented programs.

CRISTOBAL High School had good fortune this L'nfortunateiy our high school represents a rather
^ 1 1 11, ^_ C _i- II .__ 1 1 , f



year to have several excellent men. Some of
whom, greatly to our sorrow, will not be with us next
year. Largely owing to their efforts, we have had a
good year athletically. We did not always win but
we set a good example in sportsmanship, and have
always rendered a good account of ourselves.



small community and we have no wealth of
material to draw from as Balboa High School has.

Our men, by entrance into every kind of sport
and by their hard work and strenuous efforts, have
set an example for the students in the years to
come.



Our baseball season this year was a
great success. Our Cristobal boys always
could play ball, and Witherspoon, our
coach par excellence, was loaned to us
by the Navy. The rules of the Twilight
League allowed two big league players
on each team. Witherspoon played with
us the entire season, but the other man
given to us was constantly changing.
Roberts, of the Navy, began the year uith
us, but Orsi finished, pitching us to
victory in the final game of the champion-
ship series.

Next year, C. H. S. ball team will be
greatly weakened by the loss of four
players. Greene, our pitcher, has already
gone to the States, and Lowande, Klunk,
and Days will have been graduated. There
will be others to fill their places, of course,
and let us hope they will uphold the
honor of Cristobal High School as their
predecessors have done this year.

BASEBALL.

Feb. II, 1928 Before an immense
throng at "Razzberry" Park, Balboa, Cris-
tobal won the first game of the high school
series, 12 to 10. The game was a free-
hitting afl^air, Balboa outhitting us 12 to
10, but their hits were more scattered.
Cristobal's hits came with men on base.
The feature ot the game was Hele's drive
into the tennis court in the first inning
with two men on. Later in the game Jack
Klunk hit one into the tennis court, easily
making the circuit.

Cristobal played a great fielding game,
not one error being charged against them
during the entire game. On the other
hand, Balboa seemed to have the weak-
ness of missing them at the wrong time,
eight miscues being made by them. The
chief offender was Wood, who missed
four. The batting honors were grabbed
by Hele of Balboa, who got four clean
hits out ot five times up. Russey and
Quinn ot Balboa made three apiece. For
Cristobal the feature was Klunk's catch-
ing and his homer into the tennis court.
Lowande made two hits out of four at-
tempts, one ot them being a double to
left field.

A special train took almost the entire
school and a large number of other rooters
to Balboa, to cheer for the team. The
girls were the loudest in their cheering,
giving Balboa competition on their own
grounds. The game was half over when
our rooters arrived in force upon the field.
Balboa was taken by surprise; they had
never suspected anything like that.

March 1 1 1 928 In the second game of
the series, played on the .Atlantic side,
Cristobal High School won her second
straight game from Balboa High School,
thereby making a clean sweep of the
series. The game was witnessed by a
crowd of rooters from both sides, who
packed Broadway Park. Balboa had her
force of backers present; having run a
special train. The crowd was given good
music between the innings by the Fort
De Lesseps band.

Things started in the first inning.
Quinn of Balboa, first man up, walked
and scored later on Wood's single to left.
Cristobal also scored in the first inning.
Klunk forced Days at second and then
stole second and scored on Greene's
single to left. Balboa secured another
run in the third inning on Hele's triple.
Hele scored when Lowande fell in catching
Klunk's throw to second.

In the sixth inning Cristobal put the
game safely away. With two men on,
Klunk hit a long homer to deep right
center. Later in the game Klunk hit a

triple. His batting during the series was
hard and timely, he making two homers
and a triple.

The game from this stage on was well
played. Balboa fought hard but was
unable to push runs across the plate.
Thus ended a well-played series, many
of the boys being sorry that more g:,mes
were not to be played.

Cristobal High School appre.i.ites the
coaching and advice rendered by Messrs.
Dundon, Picard, and Campbell during
the Cristobal-Balboa series.

On April 22, Cristobal High School de-
feated Fort De Lesseps by the score of
7 to 3 in a hotly contested game. This
game was the first of a 3-game series
between De Lesseps and the High School
to decide the championship ot the Atlantic
Twilight League for iy28. The ideal
weather conditions brought out a large
and enthusiastic crowd of rooters.

Both teams were noticeably nervous in
the early innings. Cristobal, first to bat.



was given one run on errors. De Lesseps
retaliated in their half with a home run,
tying the score. The tie held until the
fourth inning when Cristobal scored again.
Klunk hit a three-bagger and came in on a
sacrifice by Witherspoon. By errors on
the part of Cristobal in the field, De Les-
seps in their half raised the score by
two runs. Score, 3 to 2. Hayden's good
work in the box, supported ably by good
fielding, held De Lesseps scoreless the
remainder of the game. A double play
in the seventh, Lowande to Witherspoon
to De Reuter, helped Hayden out of a
difficult hole. The score was again tied
in the eighth, made possible by Klunk's
two bagger. The game was won in the
ninth. With two men on and two out
Wertz hit a homer, making the score 6 to
3. This was followed by another double
by Klunk, who scored on a single by
Witherspoon. This made the score 7 to 3
in Cristobal's favor. De Lesseps failed to
score, dying with three pop flies to Wither-
spoon at short.

I think Hayden, our pitcher, deserves
special mention for this game. He is
new at the business this year, and this
was the first game of real importance he
has pitched for the High School. He was
in hot water several times but he came
through with flying colors.

On .April 25, 1928, at 4.30 p. m., Cris-
tobal High School played the second game
of the .Atlantic Side Championship Series
with Fort De Lesseps, winning a very
exciting victory by a score of 8 to 6.

This game was very gratifying to the
students and rooters ot the High School
not to mention the colored contingent
which was there in force. Our team
throughout the game showed a marked
superiority, even though the luck broke
against us during the first three innings.

In the first half of the first inning, De-
Lesseps scored two runs, but were stopped
by a double play. Days to Witherspoon.
In our half a run was scored a homer by
Klunk.

Hayden, over-anxious to win, was not
at his best through these first innings,
and was relieved by Orsi in the fourth.
De Lesseps scored in the second, third,
and fourth innings. When we came to bat
in the 4th, the score was 5 to i against us.
In our half we scored two runs on a hit
and a sacrifice and two errors by De-
Lesseps.

After shutting out De Lesseps in the
fifth, for the first time, we staged the usual
batting rally, scoring four runs. Every-
body hit in spiteof the fact that De Lesseps
changed pitchers.

The soldiers were again shut-out in the
sixth. We scored one run this inning
on a pass and a base hit.

In the seventh De Lesseps scored their
final run on a three-bagger by Galarza
who was sent home by the umpire because
the ball was fielded by a spectator.

This game was very exciting to the
supporters ot the High School team, be-
cause of the poor start. It was later
retrieved by the excellent playing of the
team as a whole.

B.'VSEB.'VLL NOTES.

Mike Greene, our only pitcher, after
winning two games against Balboa, left
us at a critical period in the Twilight
Le.ague schedule. Without his pitching
arm and hitting prowess we were left
considerably weakened. Mike was con-
sidered the Twilight League's best pitcher
and was one of the High School's leading
hitters, finishing second among High
School batters, with an average of .314.

Jack Klunk enjoyed the best year of
his High School career, leading the High
School team in batting with an average of
.348, and le.iding the Twilight League in
runs scored. Jack was considered by far
the best backstop in the Twilight League
and one ot the fastest baserunners. He
was also one ot the League's home run
hitters, getting two in the Balboa Series.

Lowande, our first baseman, rapidly
picked up from a slow start and ended the
series brilliantly as DeLesseps can testify.
His batting during the second half was
loud and often, and his fielding was steady.
Lowande held the shortstop position dur-
ing the Balboa Series.



Porfirio DeReuter broke in as first
baseman during the Balboa games and
made such a good job of it that he was
put there and in the outfield so as to take
advantage of his hitting and fielding.

Jack Maher, utility second ba.seman,
was used only in the Balboa Series and
played his position well.

George Wertz, starting out as a rookie
outfielder, soon blossomed into a star
outfielder and was with Klunk the Ruth-
Gehrig twins of the Twilight League.
Wertz led the Twilight League in home
runs.

.Albert Days also enjoyed the best year
of his High School career. He developed
into a very dependable fielder. Although
he played third most of the season he was
used in other infield positions very effec-
tively. At bat he was always dangerous
and finished third in the lineup, with an
average ot .304.

Walter Wikingstad, our "flaming" out-
fielder, was as all Vikings steady.
Wicky's fielding was sure and his hitting
was dependable.

Jack Pettit was our flashy outfielder,
his fielding bordering on the sensational.
His hitting was developed during the
second halfof theTwilight League season.

Paul Hayden was not able to show his
ability during the first halfo'' the Twilight
League because of Mike Greene, but when
he did enter into the games he showed
enough to assure the team that they had
another pitcher besides Greene.

Kenneth Maurer was used during the
second half because ot his suri fielding
and hitting.

\'incent Lugli, our utility infielder, was
not used often enough to show his playing
abilitv.



BOWLING.

For the first time in our high school we
have had an opportunity to bring out our
material for bowling. This year we had a
real successful season. Our bowlers work-
ed hard at the game and came out victori-
ous against Balboa. The first match was
won by Balboa but we came through with
two decisive victories and by doing so won
the honors against Balboa. The results
are .".s fellows:

May /2, 1928, at Balboa Balboa,
1,233 pi'is; Cristobal, 1,216 pins.

May ig, 1928, at Cristobal. Balboa,
1,216 pins; Cristobal, 1,260 pins.

B.ASKET BALL.

.A largenumberotcandidates turnedout
for basket ball this season. Six of these
were last-year men Klunk, Lowande,
Hayden, Days, Lugli, and Babbitt.
These six men practically made up the
High School team.

We played one practice game with the
Chase National Bank and came out vic-
torious 21 to 2c.

On May 19, we went to Balboa and
before a large crowd of Balboa's rooters
were badly defeated 40 to 10.

On May 23, Balboa came to Cristobal
and this time before a crowd of our rooters
they defeated us again. This time 50 to
10.

The teamwork of Balboa was fine.
They seemed to know just where every
other fellow was and where he was going.
Our players played more as individuals,
not being able to work together.



TENNIS.

Little interest was taken in tennis.
However, a few boys turned out and
practiced faithfully for the match with
Balboa, which occurred on February 18.
We were handed a severe beating. Gil-
man, of Balboa, showed the best playing.
His hard serve helping much to carry
his team to victory.

The score was 5 to o.



1. Oilman and Fidanque (B. H. S.)
defeated H. Mueller and R. Edwards
(C. H. S.). Score, 6-4, 6-3.

2. H. Meredith and J. Humphreys
(B. H. S.) defeated A. Mundberg and
Fishbough(C.H. S.). Score, 6-0, 6-2.

SWIMMING.

Although new material was plentihil
this year there was not much interest
taken in swimming. .An interclass meet
was held April 13, 1928, Junior-Senior
vs. Freshman-Sophomore. Only three
Seniors represented the upper classmen.
However, they were sufficient to defeat
the lower classes, 31 to 13.

On .April 21, eight days later, with
hardly any training, our swimming team
went to Balboa to compete in the annu.. I
swimming meet between Balboa High
and Cristobal High. We arrived on the
noon train, and went immediately to the
poo! to find the Balboa team ready and
waiting.

Jack Klunk, our aquatic star, was high
point scorer of the day with 194 points.
His closest rivals were Wm. Walston and
.A. Schwinderman, of Balboa, with 6 point:
each.

The meet was hard fought throughout,
sometimes we forged ahead only to have
Balboa take the lead in the next event.
When the events were ended we were one
point behind, 29-30.

Following are the official results of the
meet:

1. Klunk (C. H. S.). Time, 59 4(5 sec-

TRACK.

Track started with a bang this year and
on March 3, 1928, at Fort Davis, an inter-
class meet was held, Junior-Senior vs.
Freshmen-Sophomores. The final score
was 66 to 20, the upper classes on the
long end. From the winners ot this meet
a track team was chosen to meet Balboa.

On March 17, 1928, we traveled to
Balboa to see what we could do to them.
Our high hopes were soon shattered.
Balboa showed us that she also had some
track men and that they had done some
serious training. High honors were won
by Gayle McGuigan of Balboa, with 1 1 \
points. Lowande, of Cristobal, came
second with 8 points. Of the entire meet
we only won one first place, the shot put.
In this, two ol our men tied, Klunk and
Lowande.

THE EXCHANGE DEPARTMENT.

By Glady Elizabeth Beers, '28.



''S




-^



The exchanges that we receive at Cristobal are
always welcomed. We are always pleased to know
what is going on in the high schools in the United
States and how they like our book. Our department



The Tomahawk. Fernsdale Union High School, Fernsdale, Calif
Your general make-up of the book is excellent. Your
cover is beautiful and your cuts good. We like the
feature of running the jokes between the ads; also the
introductory page. The classification of the classes such
as Seniors as Golden Age Freshmen as Stone Age is
clever. A few unfavorable criticisms are: we suggest a
smaller staff. We also recommend using different back-
grounds and arrangements for group pictures. Why do
you not exxhange more with schools out of your State.'

The Reflector. H'oburn High School, IVoburn, Mass.

We like your magazine very much. The headings
are good, especially the one for "Stories." The poem
"Little Freshman" amused the Seniors in particular.

The Student. Holmes High School, Covington, Ky.

You have a neat magazine. Your headings are
excellent. The Exchange Department for November
is the cleverest we have seen.

The Blue Chick. Jt^ilmington High School, IFilmington, Del.
Your annual is the very best we have received.
The cover and cuts deserve special mention. The
material that is worked in with the advertisements
is a very clever idea.

The Cardinal. Girls Commercial High School, Brooklyn, N.Y.
The art department of your magazine is very good.
Your covers are very clever..

The Observer. CentralFalls HighSchool,CenlralFalls, N. Y.
You have a good magazine. The heading for U
and I is very attractive.

The Nutshell. Moorestown High School, Moorestown, N. J.
Your magazine is well compiled. The Literary
Department should have special mention.

The Stampede. Sunset High School, Dallas, Texas.

The idea of giving the staff the name of the "Stam-
pede Gang" and the names to the different depart-
ments is very suitable.

The Red and White. Rochester High School, Rochester, N. H.
The cover of your book is very neat. We especially
like the poetry written by Annie Phillips, 'igand James
Watson, '18.

I. a Reata. Albuquerque High School, Albuquerque, N. M.
We like your book as a whole. The border around
each page is very attractive. Your cuts are wonderful.
We are glad to see that you are able to produce an
annual without advertising. We suggest exchanging
with one or two eastern schools; also a permanent
cover.



is unable to comment on newspapers but neverthe-
less that does not mean that we do not read them
and keep in touch with the "doings" of the schools.
Our comments on the following annuals are:



The H'hisp. Wilmington High School, Wilmington, Del.

lour art editors should be praised and especially
the one who drew the picture of Lindbergh. The
Who's Who Directory is a clever ide.i.

We also acknowledge the following exchanges:

The Zonian, Balboa High School, Balboa, C. Z.

The Oracle, Jamaica High School, Jamaica, N. Y.

The Norihfield Star, Northfield High School, Northfield,

Mass.

The Taconic, Williamstown High School, Williamstown,

Mass.

The following are some comments that we have received:

The Caribbean. Cristobal High School, Cristobal, C. Z.

The pictures are very interesting to us. The cuts
are very appropriate. Your literary department is
the best we have ever seen in a school magazine.

The Exponent, Greenfield High School, Greenfield, Mass.

The Caribbean. Cristobal High School, Cristobal, C. Z.

'\s usual, we found your annual very clever and
interesting. It is arranged neatly and there are some
original features in this new publication.
The H'hisp, li'ilmington High School, Wilmington, Del

The Caribbean. Cristobal High School, Cristobal, C. Z

.\n all-around good magazine with departments
well-arranged. The beautiful pictures add much to
the magazine.

The Student, Holmes High School, Covington, A'v

The Caribbean. Cristobal High School, Cristobal, C. Z.

We think your annual is very good. While your
literary work is excellent we suggest more pictures.
However, the pictures you have are arranged cleverly.
We also like your sport section and are glad to see your
girls taking such an active part in sports.

Blessings on thee, modern sheik,

Millionaire on ten a week,

With thy hatless slickumed hair,

And thy flivver worse for wear

With thy sweater gaudier still

Than the sunset o'er the hill.

With thy b'loon pants miles too big

Thy whole comic valentine rig.

You'll always be an also ran;

I thank the stars I'm not a man.

The Sheik's Retort.

Blessings on thee, little dame.
Bare of neck and knee the same;
With thy rolled down silken hose.
And thy thin transparent clothes;
With thy pretty made-up face.
And thy bobbed hairs jaunty grace;
With thy red lips reddened more
With thy lipstick from the store;
With all my heart I wish thee joy
But I thank the Lord I was born a boy.

THE CARIBBEAN. 7


fbitorial.



By John G. Klunk, '28.

"Our sincerest laughter with some pain is fought;
Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thought."
-Shelley.


0


To write the appreciation of the Editorial Staff
of the Cristobal High School annual, THE CARIB-
BEAN, and of the Class of '28, to the community,
is a task deserving of another pen than ours;
because it is so real it is difficult to express. The
school and the community are close to each other,
working for the same things, the successful com-
pletion of a high school course for the students,
and high standards for the school.
Not until we are Seniors do we realize what the
community means to the school. When the time
arrives for the staff to start work on THE CARIB-
BEAN, to see the printers, to raise funds, to put on
the carnival and class play, to see to the adver-
tising, only then do we realize the kindly interest,
the generous support, and friendship of which each
day brings fresh proof. This is the spirit that
develops our students, brings out their best,
teaches them the meaning of community interest,
understanding, and friendship.


In our games you are with us; if we win, you
knew we could and are glad of it; if we lose, better
luck next time. We are proud of our school, our
faculty, and our community, who have given us
their best.
We wish THE CARIBBEAN, the last and greatest
effort of the Class of '28, to carry to you our
warmest and sincerest thanks. Peans of praise
could only tell us, as we have tried to do, of the
share this community has in the welfare of the
students of our school. In graduating honorably
we have in part fulfilled your hopes for us.
Happy, carefree school days are ended; Cris-
tobal High School for us is finished. Well may we
say, "Our sweetest songs are those that tell of
saddest thought." That it pays to be patient
with youth, and to give encouragement when
needed is the lesson we have learned as we too have
needed these helps from the men and women
who are our community.

MR. WILLIAM A. SAWYERS.
Mr. Sawyers, our principal, has been with us
only this year. He not only handles the respon-
sibilities of the principalship but also teaches
General Science and Economics, not to speak of
being the sponsor of THE CARIBBEAN Staff.
He has instilled in us the school spirit by help-
ing us to give the best carnival that Cristobal
High School has ever had. It was through his
initiative that we had a special train to see
Lindbergh "hop off," and also the train to Balboa
when we won the "flying colors" in baseball.
The success of our annual, our class play, our
graduation, and our many activities is largely
due to his help.
Our Principal has the welfare of our school at
heart. He is the biggest "booster" we have.
We know that Cristobal High School will flourish
under his wise and friendly counsel.

As adviser of the Junior Class, Miss Hesse

"Ethics" and her smile can never be parted.
Ethel came to us from Balboa in her Junior year.
Since then she has been a constant delight both
to her own classmates and to her numerous
friends of C. H. S. She is also a shining star
in athletics. Is it a wonder she was chosen as a
heroine in our play? Her pep and popularity
well fit her in the part of young Dulcy.
\\hen there is a good time to be had, Ethel is
there and her impersonations often lend to the
jollity of the hour. She has the art of throwing
one into spasms of laughter.

JOHN G. KLUNK.
Jack's middle name must be "success" as he is
a success at whatever he tries. He is an excellent
musician on the cornet, at athletics he's a "whiz,"
a certain proof of his popularity and success in
the fact that he is Editor-in-Chief of THE CARIB-
BEAN, and President of the Senior Class.
He does not linger on the ladder of advance-
ment but reaches the top. During his High
School career Jack's name has found a prominent
place in everything he has taken part in, and
those are not few.
As Barton Hawley, the villian in the Senior
play, "Cupid Scores a Touchdown," he is a dash-
ing character.
Jack is also noted for having a good, clear voice
which has been a great help to our singing groups.

ROBERT H. AXTELL.
"A" stands for Axtell and also for "arguing"
and the two can easily be spoken of together for
"arguing" seems to be Axie's favorite pastime.
He would make a good debater or lawyer, we feel
sure.
Robert is also an excellent clarinet player and
has played in the High School Orchestra for
two years.
Few of the teachers have ever had to complain
about his work, least of all the mathematics
teacher. For he is unusually quick at under-
standing problems and questions that those less
proficient in this line find puzzling to say the
least. Robert can often be seen helping those
who do not understand the whys and wherefore's
of Ph) i5S or Geometry.

Hobby-Music.

EMMA BANKS.
Bemma Anks as she has been nicknamed by
her friends, is an important member of this Class
of '28. That she can sing is attested to by
the fact that she was in both Glee Club and
Chorus for three years, taking part in "Rip Van
Winkle" the Japanese Operetta and the "Musical
Review" in the Carnival at Fort De Lesseps in
1927 as well.
But singing is not her only talent for Emma
plays the piano very well also.
At gym she also shows ability in the way she
carries out directors' instructions. She swims,
plays tennis, basket ball and indoor baseball with
equal ease.

EVANGELINE SMITH.
Vannie, the ever-pleasant Vannie, is a bright

she has been the "old faithful" in the Balboa
basket ball games-and a glorious "faithful" she
has proved. The track team's backbone was
always-Vannie. In fact, a synonym for athletic
ability in C. H. S. is-"Vannie."
And she is a real pal. Many a vanquished
soul struggling along the weedy path of education
has she helped. To know her is to love her.

ARTHUR E. ROTHENBERG.
When Arthur joined our ranks during our
Junior year, our curiosity was immediately aroused
to penetrate his quiet manner and to become
acquainted. Now we wouldn't sacrifice him for
six others, as he has so completely fitted into
our group that we would be lost without his
underlying current of humor that adds to our
pleasure in his character.
Arthur's well-earned honors are received un-

Arthur spends many spare moments away from
the haunts of mankind (also womankind) in the
tropical jungles.

BERNARD EDWARD LOWANDE.
"Hey, Eddie!" He is equally popular with the
boys and girls.
Edward keeps us guessing as to what his true
character is. He is the man of the moment, the
hero of "Cupid Scores a Touchdown."
Eddie must have his joke and the life of the
object of it, is one of long teasing. Many are the
girls who miss their trinkets-bracelets and hand-
kerchiefs-to have them suddenly appear in
his possession, and he leads them a life of misery
until they are returned. But Edward can also
be as serious as the hero of the Senior play, he
was well chosen. Although he deserted our group
for a time by going to Philadelphia, he soon re-
turned to complete the journey aboard old C. H.
S. We're glad to have you with us, Edward.

ZONELLA BLISS.
"Oh Zone, what's the English assignment?"
Thus we always depend on the dependable.
Zonella is one of the few who have followed this
class from the ground up, through twelve long
years of learning. Her violin talent is well known
both in and outside of school. She has led the
Supper Club as president with a firm but patient
hand this year.
As Mrs. Connors, the mother in the Senior
play "Cupid Scores a Touchdown," she is an
assured success. Zonella is a worker and a
reliable one, as has been proved through her
school career. As we glance through her High
School calendar we are surprised that one girl
has attained so much.

LUCIA SALAZAR.
Lucia is another joy to the heart of Miss
Sewell, because of her wondrous adventures in
the realm of Physics. Lesser stars gasp at her
marvelous adventure in the realm of Physics.
Lesser stars gasp at her marvelous understanding
of that study-the cause of many a downfall.
Although she is shy and somewhat retiring,
she is an important factor in the Senior Class-
far more important than she guesses. Full many
a student owes his rise to her. She never refuses
to aid.
She is not an athlete, 'tis true, but she is a
splendid student. Oh! that there were more like
her.

CLASS HISTORY.
By Kathryn Lambert, '28.


Looking back over the history of the Class of
'28, I am reminded of a trip through the Panama
Canal. I seem to see a Phantom Ship bearing the
name Cristobal High School and flying its colors of
purple and gold. In my fancy its crew seem to be
my school fellows, its officers, my teachers. The
Canal represents the four years of training in
High School and each set of locks signifies the
advancements we have made from year to year
in the four classes.
We, the Class of '28, who have successfully
weathered our journey through "The Canal of
Learning" are now out on the sea of "Self Sup-
port," having just passed the "Buoy of Gradua-
tion."
On October I, 1924, we entered "The Break-
water of the Freshman Class." This was a year
of excitement, when we first learned to look down
upon the eighth graders and the grammar school
students.
We noticed many landmarks on our journey to
"The Locks of the Sophomore Class." The most
important was the initiation. Next in line came
the party which we gave for the whole crew and the
officers of our good ship Cristobal High School.
By the time we reached the "Locks of the Sopho-
more Class" we had lost many of our passengers.
As we passed through these locks the landmarks
became more numerous.
We then continued our journey to the "Locks
of the Junior Class." By the time we reached these
locks our group of passengers had grown smaller
and some of our old passengers had left and new


ones replaced them. At this time our journey
took on a more interesting aspect, as most journeys
do when they are nearing their end. The work
grew heavier for us and new types of work ap-
peared. No one will forget the Junior-Senior
Banquet which our captain, Miss Dodds, told us
was the best she had ever attended in her seven
years as captain of the Cristobal High School.
We slowly passed out of the "Locks of the Junior
Class" only to enter the"Locks of the Senior Class."
The first landmark of importance was the roll
call which made known to us that seven of the
girls and five of the boys who had started on the
journey were still with us and the other boy had
joined us at the "Locks of the Sophomore Class."
At the "Locks of the Senior Class" we changed
captains. The first step which our new captain
took was to organize the staff of THE CARIBBEAN.
After these members had straightened out their
affairs, we began to make ready for the Senior
Party. Having passed this landmark we made
ready for the Carnival. We presented "Cupid
Scores a Touchdown" under the able direction of
Mir. Robert Noe. Shortly after this the Junior-
Senior Banquet was the daily topic for discussion.
Day by day the very last landmark of our jour-
ney, the one which marked the end, grew closer,
the "Buoy of Graduation." We began at once to
make ready for embarkation and soon we will be
scattered far and wide, and hope by this history
of the Class of -. to keep the life of the Class of
'28 fresh in your minds always.

24 THE CARIBBEAN.


We, the Class of '28 of Cristobal High School,
being about to give up the ghost, and having
been examined and found of sound mind, body,
and memory, do hereby make, and publish and
declare this to be our last will and testament,
before advancing into the unknown future:
To the most aspiring Class of '29 we allot
the lot in" Monkey Hill,"-Mount Hope Cemetery,
wherein repose the dead and buried privileges of
Seniors, past, and present, mostly past, that the
Class of '29 cherish and place wreaths thereon,
keeping the endeared memory of the deceased
ever green.
Robert Axtell wills his playful ways to Roy
Walker, his eye shade and his arguing to Randolph
Orbaugh, his slow walk to Lilybel Cox, and his
melodious voice displayed in Senior English Class
to Morris Luce.
Emma Banks wills her soulful eyes to Wood-
ford Babbitt, her pearls to Mildred Bath, and her
good patronage of the telephone company to
Dorothy Heim, provided she uses the legacy
faithfully.
Gladys Beers wills her Southern brogue to
Virginia Stevenson, her use of the typewriter
to Adair Taylor, who has already been practicing
on it, her driving license to Marion Boomer, her
wind-blown bob to Miriam Arthur, and her ability
to talk to Vita Lyew.
Zonella Bliss wills her art of always knowing
her lessons to Robert Edwards.
Albert Days wills his speed in baseball to Paul
Hayden, a few inches of his stature to Roger
Deakins and Mike Green, and with much reluc-
tance, his nickname of "Tiney" to Lee Kariger.
Teddy Henter wills his understanding of Physics
to Lois Williams, his happy-go-lucky attitude to
Gretchen Palm, and his canoe trips to Woodford
Babbitt.
Jack Klunk wills his pull with the girls and the
teachers to Royal Higgason, his popularity to
Fieldon Bradford, to be added to his own supply,
and his part as villian in the Senior play to
Portirio De Reuter.

P/ace.-Riverside Drive, New York, 1935.


Time.-- a. m.
Mrs. Klunk.-"Home again at 3 P. X. Staying
up with a sick friend again, or perhaps a late
meeting at Tammany where you seem to be so
popular lately?"
Klunk.-"Well, you see it was this way-- ."
Mrs. Klunk.-"All right, let's have the weak
explanation."
Klunk.-"You remember Days, don't you? He
just dropped into New York after a around-the-
world flight. He was out celebrating, so I decided
to celebrate too. We climbed in his plane and took
off for a hop down to Birmingham. When we were
walking up the street Days told me how he had
run into Gladys the last time he dropped off there.
She had married a millionaire, J. Pierpont Morgan
Doolittle, who made his fortune manufacturing
hairpins since long hair came back in 1930. She
told "Daisie" that Emma was making fine progress
in the law profession. She holds down a job with
a probate court; her main duty is to settle dis-
putes between disinherited relatives."
Mrs. Klunk.-"Well, what did you do when
you arrived in Birmingham? Don't try to avoid
the subject!"


Klunk.-"I bought a paper on the way up the
street, and read where Axtell had constructed a
200-inch telescope, and mounted it on a 'peak
in Darien' to look for lost planets. Say, by the
way, I heard that down in Panama, Lucia is the
head of an international chain of drug stores;
also down in that neck of the woods, Teddy Hen-
ter is a chemist in the Gatun waterworks. Oh, yes!
Days says that Lowande is a star football player,
learning from experience acquired in the Canal
Zone."
"On his round-the-world rgh ir Days stopped at
the South Sea Islands where Arthur Rothenberg
is engaged in the very profitable business of selling
wooden nutmegs to the unsuspecting natives.
Arthur, of course, is acquainted with Zonella,
who is a missionary in an adjoining island."
"Kathryn is the head professor in a secretarial
training school. Evangeline runs a rest-cure
sanitarium for tired business men at Porto Bello,
the new health resort at the start of the trans-Isth-
mian Highway."
AMrs. Klunk.-"Well, I'll forgive you this time
for such late hours. I'm glad you met Albert
because it's a long time since I have heard any-
thing from the Class of'- ; of C. H. S."

DERELICTS; HUMAN OR OTHERWISE.
Robert H. Axtell, '28.
GRAND PRIZE SHORT STORY.
> *'"


"Robbers Still at Large." Thus screamed out
the 2-inch headlines of Colon's morning paper,
The Tribune. The column went on to relate how
two thieves had broken into the Front Street
jewelry store and before the very eyes of the
paralyzed night clerk, had made off with a large
packet of uncut diamonds and were last seen
boarding the night freight for Panama, immedi-
ately after quitting the rear exit of the shop.
The clerk, coming to his senses, had notified the
police, who in turn, stopped the freight at
Gatun, only to be met with no traces of
the escaped criminals. Only one clue had been
attainable. The purser of a large immigrant
ship lying in the harbor had notified the police
of the disappearance of two third-class passen-
gers, and pictures of the same had been forwarded
to the authorities, who had had them published
under the screaming headlines of the aforesaid
Tribune.
Little did Roy Smith of Gatun think of this,
however. Roy was a 13-year old boy in the eighth
grade. He and his chum, Bill Mlartin, were pre-
paring for a morning's outing in their cayuca upon
the island-dotted waters of Gatun Lake.
"'W111, Bill, we had better put in the canteen
for we might get thirsty, and I don't favor drink-
ing lake water unless I have to."
"Yeah! That's a safe bet, Roy. You'd better
put a flash light in too, if we are going to board
that old ship. It might be dark down below."
The ship alluded to in this conversation was an
old boat anchored up in the lake. It had been
there a long time, and was put up in an island
cove used as a sort of ship's boneyard.
The two boys put off in their cayuca for the
island up the lake. After p.ddling for about an
hour the island was neared.
"Well, Bill, the old island seems to be about
abeam now."
"Yeah, and our old boat, the Mary F., seems
to be mi iing right along, too. Well, let's cut
around the point of the island. I know a short
cut, but the channel is full of stumps."


"Well, then, Bill, you come back here and take
the stern paddle and see if you can get through
without hitting about 'steen stumps."
The cayuca sped forward under the renewed
vigor of their strokes. Now and then the boat
would give a roll to one side or would be shoved
off its course, and a dull scraping noise would be
heard on the bottom, signifying the collision
with a stump. This amounted to nothing worse
than a trifling annoyance, and the boys made fun
out of it by seeing how few stumps they could hit.
"Say, you're some navigator, you are. How
much farther are we going, anyway?"
"Aw, Roy, you just keep your shirt on and
by the time we hit about two more stumps you'll
see the old ship herself."
A few hundred feet more and they were in a
sheltered cove where the old ship lay. She had
been once a good steamer but was now abandoned.
She was open to the caprices of the mild, tropical
weather.
Both of the boys remarked how picturesque
and queer the scene was with massive trees on
the bank nearly overreaching her decks as she
was anchored stem and stern. It seemed strange
that such an example of man's maritime progress
should be seen rotting away in the jungle-
bordered waters of the tropical lake.
There she lay, however, with ferns growing in
the damp corners of her deck and old canvas
awnings flapping in the breeze, while rotten
ropes trailed overboard into the pensive waters
of the lagoon below. On her foremost crosstrees
roosted a lone bird of the jungle, the only sign
of life in the drowsy heat of the landlocked cove.
"Let's tie up here to this ladder in the bow
and we'll go aboard. You can go up first, Bill,"
said Roy.
Bill suggested that Roy go up first as he was
the heavier and the ladder appeared somewhat
rotten. This, however, was only a cover for his
own reluctance to board such a spooky looking
craft.
Both boys were soon aboard her, and although
they spoke in subdued voices, as the situation








THE CARIBBEAN.


seemed to demand, they both were eager to see
what the old ship contained.
"Say, Bill," said Roy, "did you notice that
fire ax lying on the deck and those splinters
beside it? It looks as though someone were aboard,
doesn't it?"
"Righto! But no one comes away out here,
you know."
"\'*I -rtheless I have a hunch that someone
has been here, but we hear nothing of him at
present. Oh, -ll'\ We might as well forget
about it," observed Bill. "Let's go into the
forecastle and take a look below to start off
with."
Clambering cautiously down into the dimly
lighted forecastle, and brushing aside cobwebs
as they descended, they finally reached the crew's
quarters. On rounding the corner of the bulk-
head they suddenly came upon two rough-looking
men sprawled asleep on the dirty mattresses
spread on the floor. Both of the boys stopped on
tiptoe in blank amazement.
As Bill was the foremost he came to such an
abrupt stop that he braced his hands against the
bulkhead opposite him in such a manner as to
peel off a large cake of rust which fell on the
floor with a crash, awakening the sleepers.
"Schmidt, we're took," shrieked the wider
awake of the two men, "Beat it."
The men dashed down a dark passageway
leading into the forward hold. The thought of
the morning's headlines fl.ii'..l through the boys


I. -


minds. Instinctively they plunged after them
until they realized the danger of a possible en-
counter with the two m n.
"Stop, Bill! They're liable to come back and
kill us if they come to their senses!" exclaimed
Roy, who immediately grasped the situation.
"Let's shut that iron door, and we will have
them."
Summoning all their strength the two boys
managed to swing the ponderous iron door upon
its hinges. Shouts arose from the entrapped
men who realized their desperate plight as they
heard the bolt dropped. The boys rushed out
and climbed over side into the cayuca. Paddling
furiously, they came out into the Gatun-Escobal
launch route. They hailed the first passing
launch, which happened to be bound for Gatun.
In fifteen minutes they were ashore in Gatun
and in another five were aboard the police launch
with the Mar: F. in tow, bound for the old ship.
When the police boat reached the cove, the
anchor was dropped, and the boys, followed by
the two officers of the lake police force, jumped
into the cayuca and paddled quickly to the ship,
went into the hold, and after a short scuffle,
brought the men out h i.i., i..i and carried
them aboard the launch.
"Well, boys," said officer Donnelly, "you
have those two robbers who broke into the Colon
jewelry store night before last. They stole a
caayca and hid aboard the old ship, thinking
themselves safe from discovery."


AN OLD TIME VISIT TO FORT SAN LORENZO.
By I'oodfordB Babbitt, '-2.
(Best Junior Story.)


Stede Bonnet's scarred and weather-beaten
face was very pale as he watched the water
gradually rising. The only light in the room came
from a flickering torch, which threw a ghastly
light over the water. The room in which he was
confined was below the level of the sea, which he
could faintly hear, beating on the rocks in front
of the fort, Fort San Lorenzo.
The hole through which the water was entering
the room was at the level of the sea at low tide.
(The tide rises only a few feet.) As the tide rose
the stream of water increased in size. When the
chamber was filled, Stede would be drowned.
MR 10066-6


a


He had been here only a short time and already
the salt water had reached his waist, entirely
covering the stone bench to which he was securely
fastened. The level was gradually rising. His
fate was inevitable.
The evening before, Sir Henry Morgan, the
famous English pirate who was so active around
Panama during the :;1 I'II. seventeenth century,
had personally ordered Stede and another man,
Dayton, to go ashore and see if they could gain
entrance to Fort San Lorenzo. They were to
bring him a report as to the strength of the fort,
and the best method of attack.








42 THE CARIBBEAN.


They had landed nearly a mile up the coast,
in a small boat, about six o'clock. With a great
deal of hard and dangerous climbing they reached
the moat in the rear of the fort. They lay there
until it grew dark, watching the walls all the time.
There was one place in the wall which seemed to
be lower. It was just where two sentries met,
and was very dark, because the light from the
torches in the sentry boxes did not penetrate
that far. They noticed that the sentries always
stopped at the light at each round, so that there
was an interval of four minutes during which time
no one was on the wall. Finally, as the guards
parted, Stede and his companion slipped into the
moat. Silently they swam across, gaining the
slight embankment between the wall and the moat,
just as the sentries returned. They lay there,
hardly daring to breathe. When the guards again
departed, Stede, climbing onto his mate's should-
ers, quickly scaled the wall and slid down the
other side. He was the first of many of Morgan's
men who would enter the fort in the next 48
hours.
In a short time he had all the information
necessary. Just as he was about to climb the wall
his heavy cutlass hit against a stone, attracting
the attention of the passing guard. The latter
came over to investigate, and Stede struck him
down with a blow from his cutlass. The guards
on the wall, attracted by the confusion, seized
Stede as he attempted to climb it. He was taken
before the Spanish Commander and questioned.
As he had given no information and had been very
disrespectful, he was sentenced to death by


MA DEAR NIECE:
If, as you say, you can write a book from my
story I wish you all the luck in the world. I am
trusting to your discretion not to mention the
names of my twin brother and myself. As for the
others, I shall change them to suit my fancy.
You will remember, probably, my reputation
all through college was quite bad. I gambled and
drank continuously, but things went on alright
until my senior year. I was always lucky at cards


drowning. He was placed in a dungeon for the
rest of the night. In the morning a heavily armed
guard had come and taken him to the death
chamber. Here they left him, and now the water
was gradually rising. In the last half hour he had
noticed that the boomingof thesurf had increased,
and was now a deafening roar. The water was
up to his shoulders now, and as it crept slowly up-
ward, it made his scalp crawl. He realized that
his end was very near.
Now the water had risen above his mouth;
it would soon cover his nose and cut off all
possible means of breathing. He was straining
against the straps that bound his head, to bury
his face in the water and end the terrible torture.
Suddenly a trap door, directly over his head,
was thrown open and a ladder quickly put down.
His comrade of the night before, spattered with
blood and carrying a smeared cutlass, tumbled
down the ladder, dived into the swirling water
and hurriedly carried Stede up out of the
dungeon. Whey they at last reached the open
air, Stede, dazed and weak, saw that it was not
the surf which had caused the terrible booming,
but that it had been the guns of the pirate ships,
his ships. Everywhere about him were men that
he knew, not Spaniards. While going to report
his strange experiences to his general, he stumbled
over the headless body of the Spanish Com-
mander who had sentenced him to death.
Fort San Lorenzo, an impregnable fortress,
had easily fallen into the hands of Sir Henry
Morgan, just in time to save the life of one of his
most able assistants.


and that year someone pulled the old gag about
cheating. I had taken it before, but this particu-
lar person was so insistent that we had a friendly
argument. Then he grabbed a gun and when I
tried to get it away, it went off and shot him.
I was just drunk enough to realize that I had to
get away or ruin the family name and fortune,
as well as Phil's chances. I don't remember wheth-
er there were any witnesses or not, but I knew a
trial would be the last straw. Dad was hard and

I'd have had to leave anyway. Better that
mother should think me just-gone.
Of my trip west I haven't the slightest remem-
brance. In San Francisco I enlisted for Panama.
I remember noticing the men in the same group
with me, and it took my mind off my troubles.
They were all different types, but there was only
one who took my fancy. He couldn't have been
seventeen, but I heard him answer to twenty-one.
He was of a slender, athletic build, with a quick
alert look about him, as if he had been through
many experiences in spite of his youth.
On the boat I sauntered over to where he stood.
"Got a match?"
Without looking at me he put his hand in his
pocket, pulled out a box and handed it to me.
I saw it would be hard to break his reserve,
and the way to do it would be to act as aloof as he.
Before the boat docked we were buddies.
At first everyone grumbled, but we all liked
it after a while. Most of the bunch were old
timers, and I had been through Panama before
several times, on visits, so we knew the place a
little.
From vague sources I had heard that I was sup-
posed to have gone to Canada, to China, to
Nicaragua, to Chicago, to have committed
suicide, to have become a rum runner, and other
such foolish ideas. The papers wrote it all up,
of course, and the "general" was supposed to be
very angry. That did not matter any more. But
the most important thing was always omitted.
I couldn't find out whether the man had been
killed or not.
Then Phil came down. He was an officer in the
Medical Corps, had been through West Point,
and was quite important in army circles,
especially medical. Luckily, I was of a type which
seldom attracts especial attention. He did not
even notice me. He was at an engineer post, and
I was in the infantry, so he never saw me.
One day a group of us went out hunting, my
buddy and I,and three others, who had comedown
with us. We had a Io-day pass. At the end of
five days things began to look ugly. The three
others were always watching us with a half-sly,
wily glance. That afternoon the Kid, as my bud-
dy was called, came to me and said:
"Steve, I'm worried. Martinez and the others
are planning to'go over the hill.'"


After discussing the matter we decided not to
interfere. They could not force us to go. It was
not our place to make them return, except that
we might be accused of aiding them to escape.
On the sixth day they told us. Wehadstarted to
turn back, but they said that they would need all
the provisions. Plainly, we would go with them
or starve. A native was to guide them along the
coast to Costa Rica; from there boats would
take them to different ports.
No one thought about or questioned our past,
but the Kid had evidently had some experience
with affairs of this type. He motioned me to be
quiet.
"We'll go on for a way. At least till we can get
some provisions."
It went over pretty well. That night we stop-
ped at a native shack that had been deserted.
By the time we had eaten and the fire was dying
into embers in the clearance, lighting up the
grim, surrounding jungle, our plans had been
made.
As we sat in a circle waiting, the quietness
grew oppressive, the oppressiveness grew tense,
and finally the Kid nudged me, at the same time
rising and strolling into the hut. There is a great
deal in taking a situation psychologically. Every-
thing was done casually. I pulled the pipe out
of my mouth, knocked the ashes out.
"Well, it looks like the Kid and I would turn
back to-morrow."
The big Swede, Arlsen, was on his feet.
"Vat! You tink you take dose grub?"
It was threatening. Farman growled, "Shut
up, let me handle this," as he pulled the Swede
down.
Then I heard a voice behind me, and its cool
tones made me wonder just how much the Kid
would mind killing a few people.
"If you gentlemen will be so good as to remain
seated, perhaps we can discuss this quietly."
He was handling a pretty little automatic and
leaning coolly against the door. The Swedejump-
ed and stared open-mouthed at the gun.
"Private property. Comes in handy some-
times, you know," the Kid explained. Then
sharply, "we're going back, and you're coming
along. If you want to 'go over the hill,' wait
until we're not along."
Just for an instant I saw Farman look side-
ways with a malicious smile. From inside the

hut a knife appeared, and the hand that held it was
one I had never seen before. I fired, the Kid fired
over my shoulder, and as I wheeled instinctively,
I saw Martinez fall and Farman pull a Colt
automatic from somewhere.
The scene, as I remember it before I went
down, impressed itself indelibly on my mind. The
Swede stood out plainest in the savage surround-
ings, because of his tall, huge frame as well as his
fairness of complexion. The coals were almost
out, and only a faint glow illuminated the scene,
lighted up the dark green of the jungle, and dis-
closed the body of Martinez who had fallen with
the knife still clutched in his hand. There was a
hi a \v, sweet odor of tropical flowers, and after a
last report, I remember remarking to Farman,
who still crouched with a heavy, smoking gun.
Well, I'll see you later, old chap," as I shot
for the last time.
Then I must have been unconscious for some
time, and when I awakened, I was in the hos-
pital, and Phil was leaning over my bed. He
smiled the old familiar smile that was typical
of his quiet way. I've learned to love that smile,
and I knew the game was up.
"Steve, you certainly had it over on us, didn't
you?"


"Sir?"
"None of that. Dad bought you out yester-
day."
"Pardon, sir, but I don't understand."
"Never mind. The boy didn't die, and besides,
young Hampton had been watching from the
window."
Then I must have cried. Phil held my head
saying, "You poor kid. We were almost too late."
Once a year, now, Phil and the Kid, now
Second Lieutenant A. J. Weseley, and I have asort
of reunion. As an Army Chaplain, I am very
happy, and when you and young Weseley are
married, I'll be as contented as an old man can
be. Phil is a famous surgeon now, and since you
are his niece, there will be a church full of im-
portant people at your wedding.
Your husband-to-be is very brave, but very
bashful. I'll leave him the task of explaining how
we cleared his record and sent him through the
academy. Also you must find out from him how
he held off the others, and took care of me until
Phil and his men arrived. Now, my dear, I must
go to see some of the men in the hospital.
Your devoted uncle,

THE CAPTURE OF OLD PANA
By Fabian Englander, '3i.
(Best Freshman Story.)


Governor Arias had received a note from
Mrgari saying that he would appear within the
year and that he would take the city. Morgan
had just captured Fort San Lorenzo. Since I was
a personal friend of the governor, he told me that
he was very worried. He at once sent out an
order for stronger fortifications and more soldiers.
The work of fortif' ing the city and training the
men went on speedily. Ships, laden with gold
from Peru, were coming into port every few days.
Soon, however, the ships coming in told of the
hard time they had keeping away from the
English. Finally, one day, news was brought to
us that Ml,.rLan was coming. The g,,verntr was
very distressed, but nothing happened in the
next few days so we thLught no more of it.
,M1,nth, passed and still no sign of N Mrgan.


(I learned afterwards that he had taken his
ships apart on the Atlantic side and had crossed
over by land to the Pacific side and had put them
together on Taboga Island.)
Four months passed when finally we saw four
English ships come into the harbor. They
started firing at us and we fired back. Our men
were soon frightened as the English were pretty
good marksmen. They had blown big holes in
the Cathedral where many people had gathered
to pray.
I ordered my few belongings taken to a cave
just outside the city. The governor, by this time,
was panic stricken. The guns in our forts, which
had been booming for some time, suddenly
stopped firing. Our men came pouring out of the
forts saving that the English had blown our guns

to pieces. By this time the people were leaving
the city and it was getting dark. The governor
placed a heavy guard over on the city walls.
The monks were taking the silver and gold
from the churches and burying it in the secret
underground tunnels. The rich Spaniards, after
turning their valuables over to the monks, were
buying up mules and horses and escaping in the
direction of Porto Bello and some of the interior
settlements.
The next morning, when I went to the gov-
ernor, he said that he wanted me to command
the left wing of the army. He had the soldiers
already lined up. I proposed staying inside the
walls of the city, for I knew that Morgan could
not have many men, but he refused, and when we
saw the English advancing, we went out in army
formation to meet them. We had some natives
drive bulls at the enemy, but the bulls broke loose
and scattered. The fighting began. Mv men
fought bravely for a while, but when they saw
the other wing had fled and they were being
surrounded, they turned and fled toward the
city. A large number of them were taken
prisoner and killed. I escaped because I had
hidden in the cave.
The governor had been killed during the battle
so there was no one to govern the people. The
English began to loot and to torture the people.
They killed the monks outright if they did not tell
were they had hidden the gold. They took some
of the richer people for ransom. After much
plundering, the English set fire to the city.
The next day I thought everything was all right
so I left my cave. The city had been burned to
the ground. As I came into the public square
who should I see but Morgan and his men. I saw
at once that it was useless to try to escape, so
I was taken prisoner. Horrible thoughts h.,-,:.l
through my mind as to how he would kill me.
It was a long tiresome trip across the Isthmus.
We had very little food and the Indians were
constantly shooting at us. At last we reached


Porto Bello. We were all taken on board the
ships and put in chains until we should be ran-
somed. That night was a miserable one for me.
The next morning Morgan came to our ship.
They had on board 16 monks who were trying
to get someone to ransom them. Thev asked
Morgan to let them go and to hold a rich girl
instead. \\ -,, he heard this, he ordered every
one of them to be killed and had their heads
hung up on the ship's yards. I thought my turn
would be next, but it didn't come. Morgan
ordered the girl to be given a sum of money
and an escort to take her across to Panama City.
When they came to take me back downstairs
they told me that I would be killed at sunset
the next day if some one did not ransom me.
They only had one man on guard that night
as there were only a few of us left. I found a piece
of file by my side and was soon at work getting
the rusted chain off my leg. This did not take
very long. I then got my knife from my belt and
waited until the guard came. As it was dark he
could not see me and I soon had him laid out on
the deck. I pulled him in behind some of the
chests and after putting on his clothes, I waited
for morning. At daybreak I went on deck and
asked the captain for a boat to go ashore. He
gave it to me after I promised him part of my
supposed plunder. I had not gotten more than
a thousand yards when I heard the report of a
pistol. I knew, then, that I was discovered so I
rowed as hard as I could. I did not wait for the
boat to ground. I jumped from it and ran
toward the jungle. I heard the shots whizzing by,
but none of them more than grazed me. I hid up
a tree until it was dark fearing that some of
my pursuers might be around.
At about eight o'clock I started for Panama
City. When I reached the city, I found that the
few inhabitants who remained had decided to
move to another place seven miles away. They
thought that the new place could be more strongly
fortified.

ALL HAIL! COLONEL LINDBERGH!
By Emma Banks, '28.


All, on entering Cristobal school this morning
of mornings, January 26, 1928, were greeted with
an air of intensity-a feeling of excitement and
expectancy. Quickly the joyous news reached
every ear. "We're going to France Field on a
special train to see Lindbergh hop off!"
The graded school marched in files. The High
School was left to take its own course. Some
skipped, some ran. Breathlessly they climbed
the train, and soon the long line of cars pulled
out with laughing, singing, chattering children.
At France Field all interests concentrated upon
catching the first glimpse of their hero. Soon a
Douglas transport plane landed. Colonel Lind-

BANANAS GWINE BY.

By Aoyce Alberga, '-.

"Bananas' Bananas! Ripe bananas gwine by!
Come missus, tek a look! Bananas! Six fo' a
nickel; 12 fo' a dime!"
Such is the cry of an old colored woman selling
bananas to make a living.
She lives in a large tenement house in one of
the many alleys of Colon. Every morning rain
or shine, she rises at 5 o'clock in order to
begin her sale of bananas before anyone else.
Her clothes are always clean, but of course not
all of the latest fashion. On her head she wears
a piece of soiled cloth wound around it, somewhat
like a coolie turban. This is necessary because on
it she carries a big board in the form of a waiter.
It is filled with ripe bananas. She carries it on
her head all day, and never once does it fall.
It is really remarkable.
When Mammy, as she may be called, finds a
customer she is very pleased and talks the whole
time that she is selling. Her conversation nma be
heard to be-"Yes, Mum, dey his lufly dis
martin'. Oh! hain't you going to take more
than that? Please, li-Ius, dey really ham
nice. Dere, das a good lady. I'se gwine to
give her hextra fo' dat. Good-bye and tank
you Mum. Hi'll come agin timmarrah."

where the "Spirit of St. Louis" was.
Then the gates of the hangar were thrown

After the mechanic had tried the motor, Lindy

few of his personal friends, and climbed in.
Shortly, he waved good-bye to the eager thr.nIi,

THE TOM-TOMS.
By Arthur Rothenburt, '2S.
Night after night I heard it. Always the
same irregular cadence of knocking coming from
off in the distance. Somehow, it always sug-
gested someone hitting on wood.
Whenever I heard it, romantic fancies of savage
Indians far off in the dense ungles beating on
tom-toms and performing their wild dances would
come to my mind.
One night I heard the sound louder than usual.
It seemed to come from an island a short distance
from shore. Hurriedly seizing a flash light, I
rushed to the beach. At first I heard nothing;
then to my hearing came the same irregular
rhythm of wooden thumps, but this time followed
by mighty splashes.
Upon looking closely in the direction of the
noise, I perceived a dark, moving blur on the
water. It moved in a large circle, and finally
approached the beach where I stood.
Turning my light on it, it proved to be a
cayuca containing several fishermen, who had
been laying a seine. When I inquired the source
of the knocking and splashes, I was told that
fisherman when laying seines always beat on the
boat and water with their paddles to scare the
fish into the seine.
So perished my fancies of Indians, jungles, and
drums.

"Ah, land at last!" So exclaimed Jim Thorpe,
looking through the porthole upon the outline of
the land which was to be the home of his new
adventures. He was anxious to make a success of
the work which might place his name among the
foremost engineers of the day.
The commercial world demanded the exchange
of products between east and west in the shortest
possible time. Thus the project of the Panama
Canal. And young Jim was one of the engineers
detailed to work on the locks of the great water-
way.
After the strenuous work of drawing plans,
organizing details, and assembling materials,
Jim began to feel the need of companionship.
The monotony of the tropical heat by day and the
cries from the jungle by night did not furnish
enough excitement.
One day while wandering among the interesting
ruins of old Panama, he had a misfortune to fall
and hurt his ankle. While sitting on the ground
wondering what to do next, he heard voices.
Glad that some human beings were in calling
distance, he shouted for help. Much to his relief
a party of fine people soon loomed in sight.
Don Pedro, his daughter, Rosita, and his two
sons and their guide were returning from a fishing
trip. The injured man was carried on a hastily
made stretcher to their ranch house.
The injury, although not severe, kept him in
bed for several days. Every kindness was shown
him by his host and many a pleasant hour was
whiled away in teaching the young sefiorita to
understand the English language.
After his recovery he returned to his work but
not before he promised to come and see his bene-
factors. .Many happy week ends were spent at
the ranch and the friendship soon became a
lasting one.


One morning the overseer received an unusually
large quantity of mail. Among the letters was an
official envelope bearing Thorpe's name. The
news it contained was both delightful and dis-
appointing. He had been promoted and this
meant his going back to the States. His new field
of work was to be in the Mississippi Valley. The
next day he went to bid his new friends farewell.
It was hard to say good-bye and Rosita's sorrow
was not hidden.
His work in the States lasted for several years.
Then came the anxious exciting days of the World
War. Thorpe was one of the first of America's
youths to rally to the Colors. After a few months
of hurried drills at training camp his company
was sent overseas.
During the gloomy, dreary days of the fall of
1917, while some soldiers were working on a
bridge, a bomb dropped from a German plane,
damaging the bridge and taking a heavy toll of
life and injuring many.
Thorpe was severely wounded and was knock-
ed unconscious. When he awakened he found
himself in a field hospital. It seemed that he
dreamed of a cool hand placed on his feverish
brow. It was in reality for an angel of mercy was
standing near murmuring, "Oh, Jim! Do you not
remember your old friend?" He stared and tried
to recall, but, soon exhausted, he fell into a
swoon-like sleep.
The next morning the angel said, "It is more
serious than the injury to your ankle, but I
hope to have the same success in making you
well." Then he remembered! "Rosita, you
have twice been my benefactress. I hope some
day to reward you." She only smiled in answer.
After peace was declared a ship bound for
Panama carried Mr. and Mrs. Thorpe on their
honeymoon.


THE SHORT STORY CONTEST.


The short story contest was r-;iL.crly sponsored
by the literary aspirants of the high school classes.
Stories of all descriptions were handed in, and
there was a wealth of material to choose from.


Mrs. Grunewald, Mrs. Kidd, and Mr. Cun-
ningham were the judges who chose the winning
stories. The Staff sincerely appreciates the serv-
ices rendered by the judges during the contest.

THE SAN BLAS INDIANS.
By Vita Lyew, '29.


The San Bias Indians live on islands less than
a hundred miles from Colon. These islands are
free from mosquitoes, flies, and wild animals.
The Indians cultivate little patches of corn,
yams, cane, and rice on the mainland, and un-
like most uncivilized peoples their women do
little work in the fields. They are not a war-like
race, preferring a peaceful existence to one of
fighting and bloodshed, but are capable of the
most savage practices when once roused. For
generations they defied every attempt to civilize
them, holding their standard of race purity
above all else. They rigidly enforce the rule that
no stranger should pass the night on their shores.
Until 10 years ago the San Bias tribe was an
absolutely pure race of people.
They are peculiar in their appearance, having
dwarf-sized bodies and large, box-like heads.
Their features are coarse but even, and their color
is much like that of the North American Indian.
The men wear cotton blouses and trousers, which
they make themselves. The costumes of the
women and girls are both unique and pretty.
The fronts and backs of their blouses are of vari-
ous colored materials, and their skirt is a long
piece of cloth wrapped around the body and
tucked in at the belt. The women wear rings

THE DESTRUCTION OF THE PANAMA
CANAL.
By David Ketchum, '3r.

It had been raining for three weeks without
stopping once. Gatun Lake was rising at a
fearful rate. Communication with the outside
world was impossible. The wireless masts were
washed away although the air would have been
full of interference to have sent real messages
anyway. None could go out without risking
life or limb in the streets that had turned into
beds of raging rivers. Many of the houses were
being washed away. Forts Sherman and Randolph,
and the Naval Base were under many feet of
water. Gatun Spillway, strained to the utmost,
could hold no longer and crashed. Then an old
and supposedly extinct volcano just outside the
breakwater erupted. Slowly the Isthmus began

in their noses and ears but no rings on the fingers
until they are married.
The father of the girl makes all marriage ar-
rangements. She does not leave the parental
roof-instead the husband lives with her family
where he becomes more or less a servant. The
father naturally chooses one who will be a good
worker for him. For this reason, girl babies are
mach more welcome among these Indians than
among most uncivilized tribes. There are no
bachelors of either sex among the San Blas.
Matrimony is universal.
Their language is very simple, consisting of
about 50o words. They have no numbers beyond
ten and have no way of reckoning their ages.
Among them are found those strange freaks
of nature-white indians. They have the usual
dwarfed bodies, but their skins are absolutely
colorless. Their eyes are usually weak, causing
them to wear a perpetual squint which, with their
stiff yellowish hair and Indian features, gives
them a weird appearance.
Miss Anna Coope, an American missionary,
was the first foreigner to be allowed to stay in
their country. She lived there for I5 years,
teaching them and helping them to learn better
ways of living. She found them very intelligent
and eager to learn to read and write.

THE OLD HIGHWAY.
By Roger Deakins, '2y.
\ii.n.I' the many traces of ancient Spanish
occupation of Panama, left by the bold con-
quistadores, is the Las Cruces Road. Once a
well-traveled roadway, winding among the hills
and the dank fever-breeding swamps, stretching
from the massive walls of Old Panama City to
the beautiful harbor of Porto Bello. On this
highway, murder and thievery ran as unrestrained
as the luxuriant tropical jungle growth which
now almost completely obliterates it. Great
trees have grown in the road and their grasping
roots have dislodged the cobblestones in such a
manner that the parts of the road that can be
seen are barely recognizable. Once the air
tinkled with the sound of silver bells attached
to the pack mules that formed the gold train.
Now the harsh sound of the parrot's scream and
the squeak of a lizard as it scuttles over the blocks
are the only sounds heard, and the old road lies
and dreams of past days.

THE CARIBBEAN.


TOURISTS IN COLON.

By MWlargaret Hoaycs, '29.

I .

One sunny morning in the city of Colon,
There came a group of tourists to town,
Buying shawls, beads, and all sorts of things,
Fit even for the greatest of kings.



One little woman, short and fat,
Wearing a plaid coat and large black hat,
Pulls off her gloves, and gives a sigh,
"I don't see how they stand the heat!
Oh, my!"
3-

"Now isn't this a most gorgeous shawl?"
To her husband whispers a lady tall.
"Yes, yes, dear, but don't forget my advice
Never should one pay the first price."

4.

"Mother, mother, I want this box;
Look how it opens, and just how it locks.
First one has to find the key!
Mother, I want it. Oh, Jiminy Gee!"

5-
One old gentleman, perspiring with heat,
Looks at the cigarette holders, while taking a seat.
"It is just the kind for you, Meester."
"For me? No, no. For my sister."

6.

"And what is that queer animal's name?"
"Oh, he's the ant eater of great, great fame."
Comes from the jungle, not far from here.
He's dead, Miss, please have no fear."

7-

"Buy a lottery ticket," the vendors cry,
"Six is the number for the lucky guy.
Tink ob de gran surprise
When you wins de big first prize."

8.

"Say, there goes the Panama Railroad train,
And now, my gracious, 'tis beginning to rain.
I never did see such a dirty place,
Why look at that negro's good-natured face."

9.

Two young chaps in a hat store
Are trying on Panama hats galore.
"I know the weakness of we males,
But I think I resemble the Prince of Wales!"


There passes us, a foreign man,
A bunch of bananas in his hand.
He calls to his mate to hurry up,
Who growls in answer, "Aw, shut up."
I[.
In a carametta, a curio of this town,
Sat two old ladies, riding up and down.
And enjoying themselves, forgetting th heat
And thought the ride was such a treat.
12.
"Come, come, 'tis late; we must haste,
Back to the boat; there's no time to waste,
You know the boat will soon be leaving,
As it is scheduled to leave at six this evening."
i.1.
If you should wish to have some fun,
Go watch the tourists, every one,
When thev visit this fair little town
Called the City of Colon.

IF I WERE A POET.
By Helen Logan, 'Jo.

I wish I were a poet,
With gift of thought sublime;
The kind who put elusive words
In magic verse and rhyme.

I'd write of the little golden stars,
That twinkle in a deep blue sky;
Or the moon like a beautiful lady,
Who goes slowly floating by.

Oh, I would write such interesting things
That nature tells to me;
(If I were a poet,
And could write it well, you see.)

But I am not a poet,
And my words sound stiff and dry.
So I think I'll put aside my pen
And let another try.

EVENTIDE.
By ./ice E. l'estman, i.

The night is slowly coming on,
And the day is slowly i....r;r,
The skies are aflame with red and gold,
And shadows now are creeping.
The palm trees near by the sea
Look black against the evening sky,
And seem to whisper tales of old
As the close of the day is drawing nigh.
The waters of the open sea
Sing songs of mystery to me,
And blackbirds now do cease their call
As the shades of night finally fall,









52 THE CARIBBEAN.


GLIMPSES OF LIMON BAY.

By i r,1 .. '29.

I sit upon the old wall by the sea
\\ -i, hint. the children at their play,
And the large waves coming toward me
Forgetful of the sun's scorching ray.

At evening still you find me there
When slowly the sun sinks,
Coloring the wall with its flare
And dyeing the bay with pinks.

The sunset must gradually fade away
Into the splendor of the night;
The children in their little beds lay,
And the bay glistens in the moonlight.

The lighthouse across the bay
Flashes out its ever faithful light
To guide the ship on its way
And emphasize the darkness of the night.

The tiny stars begin to shine
Like diamonds againstt the sky so blue,
And the wan white moon divine
Whose radiance lights the heart so true.

How calm and serene life seems
With all these beauties rare,
As if painted by an artist in his dreams
When freed from all sorrow and care.

Far from the city's adding roar
I revel in my quietude and dream.
The nearby chimes announce the late hour
And start me from my dream.

And as I homeward turn sleepily
The waves their adieu bid
The chimes are pealing sweetly,
Of 'iur .,ri lre the wall is rid.


ODE TO FORT SAN LORENZO.

By Robert Axtell, '28.

Peace to thee, thou noble ruin;
Long may we see thee stand
Above the rocks, above the dune,
Above the coral strand.
With crumbling walls and long dried moat,
And cannon now in rust,
Thou listenest to the breaker's note,
To whispering palm trees hushed.
Oh, Glory of the Spaniard's fame,
Who fixed thy stones so high;
Their glory now is but a name,
But yours still brooks the sky.


A TRIO FROM THE 1[1 HMLiS.

By Basil Frank, '3r.

"Ripe bananas! Ripe bananas!
A dozen fo' a dime.
Dese am nice ones, lady
Fo' I sell dem all de time."

It's the old banana lady
With her tray upon her head.
I hear her early in the morning
When I am still in bed.

There is also the bootblack
With his "Shine, Mister? Shine?"
He'll clean your shoes up nicely
For the small cost of a "dime."

He's always around by the barber's
Where he finds a ready fee.
Sometimes he gets a five cent tip,
Then he's happy as can be.

Another one who is never sure
If he's going to get a dinner,
Is the age-bent driver of the orange cart.
His eyes have long lost their glimmer.

He may be seen in the morning
Apushing his cart along;
And if a "cochero" blocks his way
He rings his home-made gong.

They are just a few of the many
Who have lived on the Isthmus so long-
The banana lady, the bootblack,
And the orange-cart man with his gong.

But let me tell you something.
Of which you do not know,
These people are always satisfied.
They smile wherever they go.


OUR HIGH SCHOOL BOOK,
"THE CARIBBEAN."

By Mary Bretch, '31.

A book of memories so fond and dear,
Of reminiscences you love to hear;
Of sports, alumni and literature too,
The fun and joy we've all passed through.

When other roads you travel, and new friends you meet,
Ponder oft' thoughts of childhood days so sweet.
Remember, yes! Remember the good old days of yore,
So gayly spent at Cristobal High on the Caribbean shore.









THE CARIBBEAN.


DAY-DREAMS.
By BasilFrank, '3i.
While sitting down beside a stream,
I watched the clouds. They began to seem
Like the things upon the earth below,
On this land long, long ago.
I saw a castle in the air;
I saw a lady in despair;
The castle stood on running sands
In the land of caravans.
And there a knight of the Table Round,
Stood below upon the ground,
Fighting bravely for to save
His lady from an Arab knave.
When this scene from before me flew,
The deep wide ocean came to view.
There was a ship with all sails set
Going where the trade winds met.
It was a Spanish ship I saw;
Its splendor filled my soul with awe.
But what ship follows in its wake?
A vessel captained by Francis Drake!
Then I saw a flash of flame;
A roar as from a giant came;
Both ships disappeared from view,
And the scene was changed to something new.
I saw a scene, a scene of peace
In the lovely land of Greece.
A young man though his arm lacked brawn,
Was carving the figure of "September Morn."
He cut a smile upon her lips;
A graceful curve upon her hips;
The face was tilted in the air;
Wavy and curly was the hair.
The spell then broke, the apell of the dream,
And I found myself beside the stream.
All these things I had composed
From the clouds as I sat there and dozed.


PERPLEXITY.

By Elsie Darley, 'jo.

What shall I write about?
What shall it be?
These questions I'm stating
Are bothering me.
What sort of language and
What sort of rhyme?
Dear me, I am having
A troublesome time.
The more things to choose from
The harder the choice.
The sooner I've finished
The sooner I voice
My relief at just dropping
This burdensome job,
And write like the rest
Of the prose-writing mob.
A poet is born, and not made,
So they say;
And now I'll discreetly retire
For to-day.




THE LOCKS AT NIGHT.

By Ruth Duvall, 'J.

Have you seen the locks at night?
They are a very wondrous sight,
With great ships passing to and fro,
Going to lands we do not know.
And many lights along the way,
Standing there like sent'nels grey,
Seem to beckon you at sight,
To come and see the locks at night.


THE PALM TREES.

By David Ketchum, '3r.

You see them standing
In the sunlight,
Tall and proud, showing
Their royal might.
You see them on the borders
Of the romantic lagoon,
Bending and bowing while silhouetted
Ag iinst the moon.
You'll see them in the jungles
Where Morgan hid his gold,
Standing o'er all the trees,
Like sentinels of old.
If under tropical sun you have
Chanced to live,
Surely you'll appreciate the shade
This graceful tree gives.

ALUMNI.
The Alumni Department of THE CARIBBEAN continues to grow. Each year
a dozen or more names are added to the ever-lengthening list. This year we
have passed the hundred mark. Cristobal High School has 1or graduates.
Nearly half of these are still on the Isthmus. Several of them have visited us
at school. We are always pleased to see them and hope that they as well as those
who are in the States, will continue to be interested in C. H. S. and its activities.

As though in a crystal we'll clearly see
Those happy hours dear to you and me.


THE SENIOR PARTY.
By Lilybel Cox, 'a9.

The invitation to the Senior Party was received
by all classes of Cristobal High School with
great enthusiasm. It came out about o1 days
before the party, and these were spent in pleasant
anticipation.


On Friday night, November 4th, there
assembled at the Masonic Temple a large and
happy crowd. The Seniors, trying to excite
their guests, told them that the orchestra for
the evening was not able to be there. At this
everyone became disheartened.
From eight until nine, the High School Orches-
tra played several selections. Then a soldier from
Fort Davis offered several popular airs and gave
a "Charleston" exhibition.
The real orchestra then arrived. Everyone
was livened up and did his or her best to dance
when Mr. Dwyer and his orchestra gave forth
the "jazzy strains."
In the meantime punch and sandwiches were
welcomed by the guests. Dancing was again
resumed and kept up until 12 o'clock, when
everyone bade the Senior hosts and hostesses
"Good night."


THE JUNIOR PARTY.
By Evelyn Ganzemuller, '30.

Friday evening, January 6th, the Juniors of
'29 gave a clever leap year party at the Masonic
Temple.
The hall was beautifully decorated in the class
colors, blue and gold, and gay colored electric
lights.
As it was a leap year party, the Juniors an-
nounced that the girls would have to ask for
the dances. This caused much mirth among the
guests.
Dwyer's orchestra furnished the music which
was most enjoyable. Mr. and Mrs. Witherspoon
were the chaperons for the evening.
The first part of the evening was spent in
dancing. Later, Roy Walker and James Quinn
gave a humorous duet entitled "Romeo and
Juliet" for which they received much applause.
During the evening, delightful refreshments of
cake and punch were served.
The prize waltz was won by Ethel Westman
and Jack Maher, who were indeed worthy of it.
She received a Parker pencil and he a bill fold.
The remaining part of the evening was spent
in dancing until I o'clock when the party ended.
Everyone agreed that it was one of the most
enjoyable parties given this school year.









THE CARIBBEAN.


THE SOPHOMORE PARTY.
By Alice Henter, '30.

The aviators of the Class of '3o of Cristobal
High School gave their annual party on the air-
ship, "The Spirit of the Sophomores," which
started from the .ia'.nic Temple, Friday eve-
ning, February i7th.
One of the aviators met the guests, gave them
a program of the flight and d erected them to the
airship.
The airship was decorated with the aviator's
colors, blue and silver. A large American d1.'
was drap, d, with their emblem beneath it.
Little airplanes were hung from the streamers
of blue and silver.
At 8 o'clock the airship left its moorings with
the orchestra .p i', in- a lively tune.
An entertainment was given by Aviatress
Eleanor Urwiler, who did the Charleston, and
one of the guests, Mary Bretch, who recited.
During the flight, punch, cake and sandwiches
were served to the weary guests and aviators.
At 12 o'clock the airship again was at its moor-
ings, the guests thanking each aviator in turn ftor
the lovely flight.

THE FRESHMAN PARTY.
By J cyce -. \ .

"We, the Freshmen, invite you to come
To a costume party ait the Washington.
April I3h is the date.
Be there early for its starts at eight.
There will be a prize for the funniest and best,
Be sure to come-we'll do the rest."

Such read the invitations to the delightful
costume ball given by the Freshmen.
There was a very large attendance, and the
music rendered by Dwyer's orchestra was enjoyed
by all. Delicious punch and sandwiches were
served throughout the evening.
The biggest event of the party was the Grand
March. Everyone took part in this. Up and down
the ballroom did they march until the judges decid-
ed who the winners would be. Ma y Patterson
won first prize f the best costume. She represent-
ed "Little Bo Peep". Ethel Westman won the
prize for the funniest. Her costume of"Kiki" was
very well designed. The boys winning the prizes
were Jack Maher, the "Midshipman," and
Raymond Will, "Our Old-Fashioned School Boy."
MR 10066-9


Another inr,.r .rin. event was the prize waltz
which was won by Mildred Bath and Vincent
Lugli.
Much credit must be given to Miss M.. ..., the
Freshman Class adviser. It was under her super-
intendence that such a wonderful party was given.

THE SENIOR PLAY.
By Ejtr// Barmett, '"2.
This year's Seni )r Play, "Cupid Sco- r a
Touchdown," proved a decided success. Directed
hb Mr. Robert Noe, this gay little comedy made a
deep impression on the school hackers. Much
very much-of the credit for this is due Mr. Ne,
for it was only through his indefatigable lab r,
his admirable casting, that the play was given
as well as it was.
The story revolves around Dulcy Connors,
a charming school girl, whose father is out of
town facing financial difficulties. Bart-n Hawley,
a shady politician, offers to aid him on condition
that Dulcy be part of the bargain. H 'r sweet,
wise mother, however, takes Barton do.vx a peg or
two. Going to Mrs. Belden-Grey's private s.-h i:l,
Dulcy learns to know Beatrice and Stanley Cmnp-
ton, who come from a family of culture andl g,).l
breeding. Mrs. McNulty, Dulcy's mar-iel sister,
strives to kill Stanley's affection for D.ilcy, but
fails. In the end everything turns out splen Ili ly.
Other characters are Betty, Mrs. Conn.-s's
trusted maid, Gladys Fluttermore and Chubby
Wriggley. Gladys and Chubby are n- i, I anl
their clever lines provided much amnusement.
Gladvs is a sophisticated g:)ld-i,-;_. -. Chubby is
her much stepped-on prey, and together tihr
furnish hilarious comedy.
Ethel Westman was very well cast a D.ilcy,
the heroine. She act_.l just as a gay, but t-ue-
hearted young school girl should act. Jack Klunk
made a true villain. Zonella Bliss, as Mrs. C)n-
nors had a heavy part, but she carried it i
admirably. Emma Banks was perfect as the cin-
ceited M'rs. McNulty. Mildred Bath and Ed.var.t
Lowande, as the gentle, lovely society girl, an I
the college football star, did exceedingly well.
Mrs. Belden-G:e., was well-portrayed by G!lils.
Beers. Anita Rankin was adorable as the ma-i.1.
But never did two characters suit their pa-rs as
Kathryn Lambert and Albert Days suited theirs.
Kathryn was Gladys, the gold-digger, and
Albert was her fiance.

THE POPULARITY CONTEST.

April seventeenth was another gala day in
Cristobal High. The students were informed
that there was a popularity contest to be held.
Students were handed blanks to fill in. Pupils
were questioning each other who the best looking
and most popular boys and girls were.

THE CRISTOBAL HIGH SCHOOL
CARNIVAL.
By Ethel Barnett, '29.

To aid the Staff to put forth an honorable
CARIBBEAN, a carnival was held at Fort De-
Lessep's grounds on March 9, 1928. As it has
been before, the carnival was composed of a
Musical Revue, Side Shows, Dancing, a popularity
Ccntest, and Eats.
Many were the thrills the enthusiastic public
received from various side shows. A murderous
N ild Man who escaped; A Three-Ring Dog Show;
and the Missing Link, furnished much excitement.
Heart throbs were increased by the sight of a
Fat Lady, and a strange maiden, Zoma, who


Ballots were collected and counted, and a heated
contest was in progress all during this performance.
The final results of Cristobal High School's
popularity contest were:
Prettiest Girl, Mary Maher.
Best Looking Boy, Jack Maher.
Most Popular Girl, Eleanor Urwiler.
Most Popular Boy, Jack Klunk.

neither ate, drank, walked, talked or slept-
ever. There were other interesting things-
a Fish Pond, where strange to say, every fisher-
man got a "bite." The Musical Revue was
extremely satisfactory. The Popularity Contest
waxed fast and furious in the eleventh hour, but
Miss Pauline Herman was the victorious "'\Ii.
Cristobal High School." Dancing occurred in
the Movie Hall after eleven. The "Eats"
need no mention-the refreshment booth was
crowded at all times.
Due to the cooperation of Colonel Greig and
the personnel of Fort De Lesseps, Cristobal
High School, and the public, the carnival ac-
complished its purpose. It was also a roaring
success.







THE CARIBBF.AN.


Cristobal High School Saxophone Band.

THE GIRLS' SAXOPHONE BAND. THE GATLN BOYS' BAND.


This band, which is composed mainly of Cris-
tobal High School girls, is one of the best known
musical organizations on the Isthmus. Mr. Rein-
hold, the director, deserves a great deal of credit
for the excellent training of each girl in the organi-
zation, and for the splendid way in which they
play. Each girl is trained individually, then they
get together twice a week and give the neighbors
a treat.
The Saxophone Band has given many recitals
on the Pacific side as well as on the Atlantic side,
so it is well known and always well received. These
girls were asked to play during the banquet given
for Colonel Lindbergh when he was in Colon,
and they received high praise for this performance.


When we sit back and enjoy the harmonious
music of the Gatun Boys' Band, we forget those
first agonizing do-re-mi's which these young
musicians produced a short time ago. The band
was organized about three years ago through the
efforts of Mr. R. M. Crum, who is now president
of this < r a:i ri; n ti, in.
At present there are about 40 members in the
band, and, under the very able leadership of Mr.
M)Lcr Cohen, of Fort Davis, this organization
plays very well and need no longer be considered
amateur.
The Gatun Boys' Band has given concerts on
both sides of the Isthmus and is well known for its
well-balanced and well-presented programs.

C RISTOBAL High School had good fortune this
year to have several excellent men. Some of
whom, greatly to our sorrow, will not be with us next
year. Largely owing to their efforts, we have had a
good year athletically. We did not always win but
we set a good example in sportsmanship, and have
always rendered a good account of ourselves.


Our baseball season this year was a
great success. Our Cristobal boys always
could play ball, and Witherspoon, our
coach par excellence, was loaned to us
by the Navy. The rules of the Twilight
League allowed two big league players
on each team. Witherspoon played with
us the entire season, but the other man
given to us was constantly changing.
Roberts, of the Navy, began the year with
us, but Orsi finished, pitching us to
victory in the final game of the champion-
ship series.
Next year, C. H. S. ball team will be
greatly weakened by the loss of four
players. Greene, our pitcher,has already
gone to the States, and Lowande, Klunk,
and D L). ..II .1. e been graduated.There
will be others to fill their places, of course,
and let us hope they will uphold the
honor of Cristobal High School as their
predecessors have done this year.

Unfortunately our high school represents a rather
small community and we have no wealth of
material to draw from as Balboa High School has.
Our men, by entrance into every kind of sport
and by their hard work and strenuous efforts, have
set an example for the students in the years to
come.

On April 22, Cristobal High School de-
feated Fort De Lesseps by the score of
7 to 3 in a hotly contested game. This
game was the first of a 3-game series
between De Lesseps and the High School
to decide the championship of the Atlantic
Twilight League for i,,x. The ideal
weather conditions brought out a large
and enthusiastic crowd of rooters.
Both teams were noticeably nervous in
the early innings. Cristobal, first to bat,


was given one run on errors. De Lesseps
retaliated in their half with a home run,
tying the score. The tie held until the
fourth inning when Cristobal scored again.
Klunk hit a three-bagger and came in on a
sacrifice by Witherspoon. By errors on
the part of Cristobal in the field, De Les-
seps in their half raised the score by
two runs. Score, 3 to 2. Hayden's good
work in the box, supported ably by good
fielding, held De Lesseps scoreless the
remainder of the game. A double play
;n the seventh, Lowande to Witherspoon
to De Reuter, helped Hayden out of a
difficult hole. The score was again tied
in the eighth, made possible by Klunk's
two bagger. The game was won in the
ninth. With two men on and two out
Wertz hit a homer, making the score 6 to
3. This was followed by another double
by Klunk, who scored on a single by
Witherspoon. This made the score 7 to 3
in Cristobal's favor. De Lesseps failed to
score, dying with three pop flies to Wither-
spoon at short.
I think Hayden, our pitcher, deserves
special mention for this game. He is
new at the business this year, and this
was the first game of real importance he
has pitched for the High School. He was
in hot water several times but he came
through with flying colors.

On April 25, 1928, at 4.30 p. m., Cris-
tobal High School played the second game
of the Atlantic Side Championship Series
with Fort De Lesseps, winning a very
exciting victory by a score of 8 to 6.
This game was very gratifying to the
students and rooters of the High School
not to mention the colored contingent
which was there in force. Our team
throughout the game showed a marked
superiority, even though the luck broke
against us during the first three innings.
In the first half of the first inning, De-
Lesseps scored two runs, but were stopped
by a double play, Days to Witherspoon.
In our half a run was scored-a homer by
Klunk.
Hayden, over-anxious to win, was not
at his best through these first innings,
and was relieved by Orsi in the fourth.
De Lesseps scored in the second, third,
and fourth innings. When we came to bat
in the 4th, the score was 5 to I against us.
In our half we scored two runs on a hit
and a sacrifice and two errors by De-
Lesseps.
After shutting out De Lesseps in the
fifth, for the first time, we staged the usual
batting rally, scoring four runs. Every-
body hit in spite of the fact that De Lesseps
changed pitchers.
The soldiers were again shut-out in the
sixth. We scored one run this inning
on a pass and a base hit.

In the seventh De Lesseps scored their
final run on a three-bagger by Galarza
who was sent home by the umpire because
the ball was fielded by a spectator.

This game was very exciting to the
supporters of the High School team, be-
cause of the poor start. It was later
retrieved by the excellent playing of the
team as a whole.

SWIMMING.
Although new material was plentiful
this year there was not much interest
taken in swimming. An interclass meet
was held April 13, 1928, Junior-Senior
vs. Freshman-Sophomore. Only three
Seniors represented the upper classmen.
However, they were sufficient to defeat
the lower classes, 31 to 13.
On April 21, eight days later, with
hardly any training, our swimming team
went to Balboa to compete in the annuJ .
swimming meet between Balboa High
and Cristobal High. We arrived on the
noon train, and went immediately to the
pool to find the Balboa team ready and
waiting.
Jack Klunk, our aquatic star, was high
point scorer of the day with 19i points.
His closest rivals were Win. Walston and
A. Schwinderman, of Balboa, with 6 point:
each.
The meet was hard fought throughout,
sometimes we forged ahead only to have
Balboa take the lead in the next event.
When the events were ended we were one
point behind, 29-30.

Following are the official results of the
meet:

TRACK.
Track started with a bang this year and
on March 3, 1928, at Fort Davis, an inter-
class meet was held, Junior-Senior rs.
Freshmen-Sophomores. The final score
was 66 to 20, the upper classes on the
long end. From the winners of this meet
a track team was chosen to meet Balboa.
On March 17, 1928, we traveled to
Balboa to sce what we could do to them.
Our high hopes were soon shattered.
Balboa showed us that she also had some

The exchanges that we receive at Cristobal are is unable to comment on newspapers but neverthe-

The Tomahawk. Fernsdale Union High School,Fernsdale,Calif. The Whisp. Wilmington High School, Wilmington, Del.
Your general make-up of the book is excellent. Your Your art editors should be praised and especially

feature of running the jokes between the ads; also the Who's Who Directory is a clever idea.

smaller staff. We also recommend using different back-
grounds and arrangements for group pictures. Why do
you not exchange more with schools out of your State?
The Reflector. Woburn High School, Woburn, Mass.
We like your magazine very much. The headings
are good, especially the one for "Stories." The poem
"Little Freshman" amused the Seniors in particular.
The Student. Holmes High School, Covington, Ky.
You have a neat magazine. Your headings are
excellent. The Exchange Department for November
is the cleverest we have seen.
The Blue Chick. Wilmington High School, Wilmington, Del.

The cover and cuts deserve special mention. The
material that is worked in with the advertisements
is a very clever idea.

You have a good magazine. The heading for U
and I is very attractive.
The Nutshell. Moorestown High School, Moorestown, N. J.
Your magazine is well compiled. The Literary
Department should have special mention.
The Stampede. Sunset High School, Dallas, Texas.
The idea of giving the staff the name of the "Stam-
pede Gang" and the names to the different depart-
ments is very suitable.
The RedandWhite. Rochester High School, Rochester, N. H.
The cover of your book is very neat. We especially
like the poetry written by Annie Phillips, '29 and James
Watson, '28.
La Reata. Albuquerque High School, Albuquerque, N. M.
We like your book as a whole. The border around
each page is very attractive. Your cuts are wonderful.
We are glad to see that you are able to produce an
annual without advertising. We suggest exchanging
with one or two eastern schools; also a permanent
cover.

The Oracle, Jamaica High School, Jamaica, N. Y.
The Northfield Star, Northfield High School, Northfield,

the best we have ever seen in a school magazine.

interesting. It is arranged neatly and there are some
original features in this new publication.

An all-around good magazine with departments
well-arranged. The beautiful pictures add much to
the magazine.

The Caribbean. Cristobal High School, Cristobal, C. Z.
We think your annual is very good. While your
literary work is excellent we suggest more pictures.
However, the pictures you have are arranged cleverly.
We also like your sport section and are glad to see your
girls taking such an active part in sports.

With thy b'loon pants-miles too big-
Thy whole comic valentine rig,
You'll always be an also ran;
I thank the stars I'm not a man.

Blessings on thee, little dame,
Bare of neck and knee the same;
With thy rolled down silken hose,
And thy thin transparent clothes;
With thy pretty made-up face,
And thy bobbed hairs jaunty grace;
With thy red lips reddened more
With thy lipstick from the store;
With all my heart I wish thee joy
But I thank the Lord 1 was born a boy.
