Ca 1ribbean


To refresh a faded memory;
To recall rich scenes again,
We hope herein to forge a link
'Tween the days of now and then.

Precious more than Indies' wealth;
Whose gems through ages last,
Is the pow'r to rent the veil of time,
And re-live an eventful past.

Mr. Ben Williams

Principal's Message

May this beautiful year-book mean more than merely a
record of splendid achievement during the past year-may
it remind us, as we read of our pleasant school relation-
ships, that the pattern of our lives must ever be inextricably
woven with the lives of those about us. Ennoblement of
oneself makes others to higher levels rise.

Dr. George Howard

Mr. Lawrence Johnson

Class History

The graduating class of 1939 entered Cristobal
High School in the fall of 1935 and at their first
meeting elected Luis Finlason class president. The
other officers were George Booth, vice president;
Bayard Colyear, treasurer; and Peggy Brown, secre-
tary. Mr. Calmer Batalden sponsored the c'Uss. On
the twentieth of September, the Freshmen and Sopho-
mores gave a joint dance in the high school gym. Two
pantomines were given by the freshmen during their
first year under the sponsorship of Mrs. Phyllis
Spencer's "Effe Kube Klub." The class closed their
first year of social activities with their prom in April.

In September 1936 Alfred Stumpf was chosen
the new president and Mrs. Spencer was nanmed spon-
sor of the sophomore class, which boasted of having
members in every organized club in high school. To
celebrate their many victories as sportsmen, the sopho-
mores held three parties during the year; the first, a
Halloween party; the second, a dance; and the third,
a splash party at the Submarine Base, Coco Solo. One
of the most successful hops of the year was that one
given in February by the Sophomore Class...... gym-
nasium decorated in the class colors, blue and white.

Entering the portals of C. H. S. in September
1937 the class of '39 made the most of their first
year as upperclassmen. George Booth was elected
president at the first class meeting under the sponsor-
ship of Mr. Ted F. Hotz. In January, the class em-
barked for Shimmy Beach and a day in te sun. Class
rings were ordered in February. In the C. H. S. Car-
nival, the juniors ranked first in profits making a total
of $157.14 from their six booths: the Country Store,
Telegraph, Penny Game, Dice Game, Barrel Booth,
and Shooting Gallery. The year was finished off with
the annual Junior-Senior banquet in May, which

proved to be one of the social high lights of the year.
During the final plunge the Senior Class carried
on in sports and received coveted honors. The Senior
dance in November was a striking success and set a
new high. During the year the class held three, parties;
the first, at the Cristobal Gun Club; the second, in
the high school gym; and the third, at Gaiun Lake.
The social year was again fittingly climaxed by the
Junior-Senior banquet which was given in June at the
Hotel Washington. Graduation night marked a
"finis" in the careers as high school students of the
class of '39.

S.A. Election Slated For Tuesday




The senior class president,

urer, and two Student Associa-
tion representatives were elect-
ed at the senior class meeting,

ed as secretary. Nominations

president out of four candidates.
Mr. Vinton reminded the class

tion proceeded.
Bill Ebdon was elected vice-
president; Charlotte Raymond,

Room For CHS. Visitors
Made In High School

Room 124, formerly used for
mimeographing, has been trans-
formed into a guest room by Mr.
Cecil L. Rice, Principal.
Two students, selected by their
study hall teachers, are station-
ed at a table in the front hall
each period. When a visitor
arrives, he is conducted around
the school by one of the "es-
corts". If he should wish to see
a teacher, he is taken to Room
124. Then the escort goes to the
office, learns when the teacher
can come, and informs the wait-
ing visitor.
The waiting room is furnish-
ed with a studio couch, wicker
chairs, tables, rugs, and lamps

The whole trip was about 3,000

This unusual "Chief" of the
Amazon region is Mr. Kenneth
Vinton, who after exploring and
collecting rare specimens in
South America, returned to
Cristobal High School to teach
about what he had found and
seen this summer.
Mr. Vinton's robe is the chief's
cushma, made by a chief him-
self. Cotton is used to make the
threads, then they are dyed and
woven into the design. The
crown is also the chief's. It is
made of parrot and macaw
feathers and beads. The shoes
are made of Alpaca fur. The
rugs are of Alpaca wool in na-
tural colors of black, brown, and
white. The design on the rugs
are those of the Inca. It took
Mr. Vinton from the latter part
of June to the first of Septem-
ber to grow his beard.
Mr. K. Vinton, Mr. Hu g h
Stickler, C. H. S. teacher, who
is now on one year's leave of
absence, Mr. Birnbaumer, and
Mr. Ralph Davis, former student
of C. H. S. spent the summer
along the Amazon River. They
were mostly impressed by the
large variety of tropical fish. The
most peculiar, being the Canero.
It is a carnivorous fish, that
has rows of sharp spines along
the gill cover. This fish hooks
itself in the human nose, ear, or
any openings in the skin. It then
bites and chews the meat while
boring its way into the human
body until it is removed.
Another odd fish is the Pana.
This is another carnivorous fish.
It has very sharp, vicious teeth.
The Pana is about the size of
the bass. It snaps at things and
if it catches a finger, will bite it
off. Mr. Vinton said that he saw
many Indians with a finger bit-
ten off.
The electric eel is a very fleshy
fish. It gives off a terrific shock
that knocks a man down.
Amazon Trip
The Indians catch the eels by
using Barbasco Roots which
create a filmy poisonous mix-
ture, that kills fish-life. The
poison does not harm the meat,
so it is eaten.
A very peculiar rodent is the
Capybara, which is the largest

Sometimes when we have a
great many advantages given
us, we become so accustomed to
them that we forget how for-
tunate we are, and take things
for granted.
To serve as a brief reminder.
listed below is a list of additi-
onal privileges granted members
of the Student Association:
1. Two three ac: play,
2. Four one act plays
3. Two junior college plays
4. High school operetta
5. Stunt night
6. Christmas pageant
7. Spring Music festival
8. Five school dances
9. Junior-senior banquet
10. Trade Wind
11. A year book.
Taken separately these things
would cost more than the $3.5C'
or S400 that a student paysn to
belong to S. A.

Another year has passed and
more graduates of CHS are out
in the world. The favorite pas-
time seems to be getting jobs
with the Canal or going far
away to college.
Among those employed in the
Comm'y Division are these Ga-
tunites: Thelma Callaway (Ft.
Davis Comm'y) and Dotty Haic
(Cristobal Commy).
Many boys were able to se-
cure apprenticeships. Bill Eg-
ger and Alfred Stumph are
serving in the Cristobal Tele-
phone Exchange. Laurel Highley
is at the Gamboa Comm'y. An-
:hony (Rel') is serving as a
blacksmith in the Balboa shops,
Fred Weriz is an apprentice at
the Electrical Division at the
Cristobal Roundhouse, and Ol-
iver Paler:on is a shipwright
in Balboa.
The greater part of last year's
class went to colleges or prep
schools in the States. Louise
Zimmerman is attending the

he is studying dentistry. Rose

In the typing class, the stu-
dents seem to be having a hard
time typing in time with such
slow music. Now, maybe, if Miss
Pate:son would slip in "The
Dipsy Dootle" or "A Tisket a
Tasket" the pupils might not
find it so hard to keep time.

Tommy Ashton played the
prince to Cinderella. He placed
the slipper upon the dainty foot
of Byne Bunting, then stood up
for his reward, but there was no
response. Maybe his technique
wasn't up to par.

No wonder Mr. Hotz is such
a good athlete, he practices for
football and soccer by kicking
paper wads occasionally.

Hooray! Finally the girls that
take gym can take it without
feeling like a floursack. Now that
they can have modern gym suits
why can't they be taught some
modern dances. After all those
folk dances are a bit antique.

From the looks of the first
chemistry laboratory, there will
be many a mark left on the
students to remind them of
their chemistry days. Today's
class met with four accidents.
Of course it was girls who burnt
their fingers with hot aluminum
it couldn't be anything else when
the class is all girls, but three.

The school can now call on a
member of their faculty for a
piano solo in one of the morn-
ing assemblies. The talented
teacher is Miss Moore who
brought a new piano back from
the States this summer. Here's
hoping she can play.

Quite a furor was caused in
Mr. Beck's room during one of
his classes the other day. One
monkey lost, strayed, or stolen,
happened upon the window

monk hung by his tail and gaz-

room. Finally he galvanized
himself into action, leaped into
the room, and ardently embrac-

fast freshmen have placed them-
selves in second place, and the

A newcomer to our high
school, Jimmy Pescod, frosh,
has definitely placed himself on
the list of future stars. Older
students can well remember
Jimmy's famous brothers, Char-

in the school's Hall of Fame, as
the two best all-around athletes.
In his first high school soccer
game against the sophs, Jimmy
scored two of the five freshmen

Many students are remarking
about giving the frosh such large
handicaps. For these students, it
will be well to remember that the
frosh soccer experience has been
limited to their Junior High School
years, while the upper-classmien
have had tuo or more years of high
school practice.

The Seniors captured the first
place in the league after the
Soccer game of last Thursday,
conquering the Sophs 3 to 2.
The Senior captain, Frank
Robles, led his teammates into
Sophomore territory and scored
he first goal. The sophs came
oack with a hard run, but were
stopped by the senior guards
Booth and Gravatt. The seniors
tried to conquer sophomore
ground, but each push was frus-
trated by the wily sophomore
guard, Pucci.

At the kick-off of the second
half, Robles repeated his crash
through the sophomore lines for
another goal. The sophomores'
attempts to invade the senior
goal zone were firmly repulsed
each time. Herrera, finding a
large opening in the sophomores'
line, in the last few minutes of
the game, went smashing
through the unsuspecting sophs.
while Robles and Finlason kept
the coast clear. Herrera tallied
the final goal for the seniors.
The sophs were unsuccessful in
scoring, but were given a 2 point

After an accident last Thurs-
day, October 7, Alfred Terwil-
linger, freshman, lost a finger
in woodwork.
In pushing a piece of wood
that was too short through the
joiner, his right index finger
slipped into the machine and
was cut off between the first
and second joints.
Alfred was taken immediately
to the hospital. After the doc-
tor amputated his finger to the
second joint, Alfred has now
only one of the phalanges on
his right index finger.
"We very much regret Albert's
accident. Albert is certainly a
'good sport'. Immediately after
he had his wound dressed, he
hurried back with his father to
explain how the accident hap-

blame. We only trust that Al-

half but the juniors held the
upper hand. Brayton rallied
the sophs, and invaded the
juniors' territory. The forwards
were in scoring positions be-
fore the juniors were able to
remedy the situation. Seeing the
po-sibility of the juniors' re-
gaining the ball, Brayton boot-
ed the ball with every ounce in
his body. Farrell, the junior
goalie, was too late to stop this
kick, which went through h-is
legs. With this goal the half
ended. Sophs in the lead 2-1.
Returning from their briel
rest the juniors went at the
sophs with added vitality. Co-
saraquis, again broke his way
through the sophomore guards
and added another goal to the
junior register. Farrell, who
changed to forward, received a
pass from Carlos and booted
another goal, putting the ju-
niors in the lead, 3-2. Two
minutes before the closing
whistle, Cosaraquis intercepted
a Sophomore pass near the
soph goal and kicked it past the
goalie. Mr. Pesco sounded the
closing whistle, giving the game
to the juniors 4-2.

And then came the storm-

The fireworks started with
the turning on of the gai; and
the lighting of the burners.
From then on things began to
happen! At the end -of the 2nd
period, 7 were down with blis-

Soccer season is entering the
second half and the seniors, ju-
niors, and freshmen are in a tie
for first place. Each of the three
are putting up a game battle for
the lead. Coach Pesco stated that
the juniors will be a sure bet
for first place. Personally, I think
the senior bull-dogs will finally
romp into first place.

The high school all stars
showed a strong offense team
as well as an unbreakable de-
fense. Saturday this team tan-
gled with the victorious Dutch
team of Colon. The game ended
with a tie and went into an
extra period. Although our all-
star squad was finally over-
thrown by the Dutch team, by
the score of 5-4, the team dis-
played an unusual amount of
fighting spirit which will subdue
the Brother's School.

Juniors Down Sophs
4-2, Now 3 Team Tie

Before a crowd of students,
the hard playing Juniors won
the soccer game from the S)phs
4-2 on Thursday, Oct. 5. By
clinching this game, the juniors
projected themselves into the
tie, between the seniors and
frosh for first place honors.
Cosaraquis, junior, covered
himself with glory by scoring 3
of the junior's 4 points. The
other point was tallied by Far-
rel. For the Soph;. Brayton
scored the only goal.
From the opening whistle, to
the finish, the juniors kept up
a relentless drive on the o-
phomores' line of defense, weav-
ing in and out of the Soph's
lines. In the first half, the jun-
iors registered their first point,
when Cosaraquis swooped into
the goal out of the goalie'.s
reach. This goal tied the score
1 to 1, for the Juniors give the
Sophs a one point handicap.

The seniors claimed a 41~
victory over the juniors in a
spectacular soccer play Monday
Robles scored two points for
the seniors in the first half,
while Lam raised the score to 4
with two goals in the second
half. Scoring for the juniors was
Outstanding in plays were
Lam, Robles, Booth, and goal
keeper, T. Ashton. Every play
found them alert.
The juniors were at a disad-
vantage the first half with a
substitute goal keeper but Ca-
denhead, their regular man, was
at his post the second half. He
held senior scoring down.
One play well worth mention-
ing was Nitto's score. Cosaraquis
booted the senior goalie, but was
stopped momentarily until Ash-
ton dropped it. Then Nitto kick-
ed the goal for the juniors. Ex-
cellent team work in this play.
Jimmie Cosaraquis knows how
to juggle the ball-puts it where
it should be. The same can be
said for Jimmie and "Bunky",
"Little but mighty"-and very
vauable on any team.

This unusual desire for peas,
was because there were no other
vegetables. The order of vege-

to arrive in time, so the only
alternative f o r the cafeteria
cooks was to open cans of peas,

them. There were also a few
salads, some soup, milk, lime-

This Monday quite a different

The afternoon of Navy Day
saw many of our dear, bright-
f a c e d little kiddies eagerly
climbing aboard the busses sent
to tote 'em over to see the "dreat
big boats".

To hear the daily bulletin read
is to gain the every day run of
news sugared over by those
whopping cracks of Rice, Cecil
L. Principal.

My, My! We didn't know the
upper class Debs were possessed
of such modesty. They hesitated
plenty before they could be per-
suaded to have their pictures taken
with their limbs partially exposed
to view, and what limbs! (No cat
scratch either).

After being gotten up, let
down, rescued, put on the table,
and resurrected again, the Se-
nior Picnic was finally gotten
off last Saturday P. M. The con-
sensus of opinion seems to indi-
cate that everything was per-
fectly ducky.

Whole hordes of us were
amused to see Marvin plunking
happily away on his dog house
at the Friday Music Assembly.

Speaking of the assembly, that
Small Fry number was one of
those skits dreamed about but rare-
ly achieved. And while we're on
the subject, we still give those two
boys who play the "fiddles" plenty
of credit.

The Junior High plays weren't
bad at all, in fact, the world
weary Senior high actually
laughed at the cracks.

This is dedicated exclusively
to the Latin Students (heaven
help 'em).

Prof. Vinton imparted an a-
larming piece of news to his
chemistry classes the other day
when he informed them that
any one person had enough
electricity in 'em to blow C.H.
S. off the map. Can't you just
picture a big bad villian hold-
ing up an innocent student and
shouting "if you come a step
nearer, I'll blow us both up"?

Three correspondence bugs
from Austin High, Texas, have
trustingly sent in their names
and indicated their desire to
start corresponding. Anybody
want a crack at 'em?

Finally, after much fast and
furious research (in which we
have unhesitatingly worked our
fingers to the marrow) we have
happened upon the student dic-

Miss Baily has, with infinite
cunning, devised a deep laid
plot designed to make people
who attend gym classes take
showers. We pride ourselves,
however, on having uncovered
said plot: namely, victims roll
continuously on floor, when
slight chocolate hue is taken
on, victims aro dismissed. So
far it has worked perfectly.

'Twere extremely humorous
to see the effect of tho-e grade
cards on the appetites of the
students when they staggered
down the hall to partake of
much needed nourishment.

is blond and fair. No mention

It is interesting to note the
different methods teams apply
in soccer. The high school teams
use their heads a great deal and
the junior high teams seem to
rely on dribbling.

From the looks of the girls'

On Pleasure Trip To South America

By Wylene Pool and Jack
"Nibble and blink, nibble and
That's all that rabbits can do,
I think.", proudly quoted Mr.
Lloyd C. Douglas, well known
novelist, as he recited his six-
year-old grand-on's first liter-
ary effort entitled "RabbiEs."
Mr. and Mrs. Douglas arriv-
ed on the Canal Zone last week
enroute to South America on
a pleasure trip after the com-
pletion of his latest novel, "Dis-
puted Passage."
"This story is now running
serially in the 'Cosmopolitan'
magazine and will be published
in book form some time in Jan-
uard," stated the author.
"Paramount has recently pur-
chased the novel." continued
Mr. Douglas. "My movie agent

tells me that the screen version
will, in all probability, be di-
rected by Al Lewin, who direct-
ed "The Good Earth," since the
leading woman in the book, al-
though an American, was born
and raised in China."
"Disputed Passage" is a me-
dical story concerning the ha-
tred between a young doctor,
Jack Beaven, and his profes-
sor in anatomy. On Beaven's
first day at school, the profe -
sor conceives a strong dislike
for the boy and from that day
forth, 'takes him for a ride.'
Jack shows unusual ability in
his work and as a result, is ap-
pointed assistant to his old pro-
fes:or. They work together in
the laboratory and produce
wonderful results. Outside of
the hospital, they are bitter

any class to spend..
A bill which was paid was

On War's Futility

Judge E.I.P. Tatelman re-
counted his intimate experien-
ces of the World War and sto-
ries of conditions before the
war, in the assembly, last Thurs-
day, commemorating the sign-
ing of the Armistice.
He told about the way the
countries which started the
World War, supposed to last
only a month, continued it for
four devastating years. He also
told of the attitude taken by
America at the outbreak; how
enthusiasm grew among the
college students, including him-
self; how ships were painted to
mislead the enemy; and how
the people re-acted when the
Armistice was signed. Some
people cried while others shout-
ed and laughed to think that
the night of horrors was ended.
Later they found that the
only good gained is the nation-
al holiday celebrated all over

After seeing the sophs battle

have finally shown their true

teamwork, they defeated the
juniors 4-2 and lost to the se-

For an all around soccerman
Pucci takes the cake. Removed

"The early team gets the title"
so the juniors believed. Already
they have had football practice and

"Now it's only a paper moon,
hanging over a cardboard scene"
these familiar words of an
old hit tune suggest the atmos-
phere to be created by "The Ro-
mancers," play being given
December 15 and 16.
New scenery is being con-
structed under the able direc-
tion of our versatile principal,
Mr. Rice. It is partly finished,
as will be noticed by observa-
tion in the auditorium. The
blank piece of canvas covering
the back of the stage will be
painted some effective color in
a few days and then progress
will be more rapid.
The scene is to be a garden
setting. A low wall, in a pre-
dominant position on the stage,
is illuminated romantically by
moonlight. "This wall," Mr. Beck
stated, "plays a silent leading
part in the plot." Flowers are
to be arranged attractively
,about the wall and garden bench
- to add to the glamour cf this
forthcoming production.
Among the new properties is
a "cyclorama." Mr. Beck de-
scribed it as "a curtain which
can be used to set any proper-
ties in front of it." Things such
as this will be serviceable for
many years to come and as
,we accumulate props, the put-
Sting on of plays will be much
ieess complicated. The actual
performance is not the most
difficult of all. The backbone
of any theatrical attempt is in
the scenery, lighting, make-up,
and costuming.
There has been much prepa-
ration for this play. Through
the efforts of Alma Bramin,

U. S. International Conference Delegate
D. W. Tracy Interviewed For Trade Wind

Mr. Dan W. Tracy, president

is on his way to Lima, Peru,

Conference of American States,
was welcomed by a delegation
of Canal Zone organized labor
when the Santa Clara docked

tion in this conference with

"The Romancers," a three act
play, under production since
November 21, will be presented
in the C.H.S. audtiorium Dec-
ember 16.
"The play, a romantic come-
dy, is laid in the late eighteenth
century. The leading roles are
ably handled by Marilou An-
thony and Jack O'Hearn. Jack
LaLonde, George Booth, Sam
Frier, and Everett (Pee Wee)
Rodgers also do justice to their
roles," said Mr. Paul Beck, one
of the sponsors of the C.H.S.
dramatic club, who is directing
this play.
"The Romancers" was writ-
ten by Edmond Rostand at Mar-
seilles, France, in 1868. The
play was performed for the first
time in Paris, at the Come'die
Francaise in 1894, and because
of its delicacy and charm,
achieved considerable success.
Here is the story of a young
couple madly in love with each
other, but fearful that their
fathers will oppose their mar-
riage. The fathers feel that if
they give their consent too
willingly, the children will not
marry. With this idea in view,
the fathers plot an abduction
in which the hero rescues the
maiden according to plan.
Things apparently work out
beautifully until the young cou-
ple discover it was all a plot.
The remainder of the play por-
trays the manner in which they
were re-united.
Since the action takes place
in the eighteenth century cos-
tumes and wigs must be pro-
vided for the actors. A few
members of Miss Worrell's art
classes are making wigs.
"This play is an excellent
type for the actors to express
a great range of feeling," re-
marked Mr. Beck, director.

Juniors Take Grid With Balboa H. S.

Lead With 18-0 Win

By defeating the seniors 18-0
in a muddy grid game, the ju-
niors have taken the lead in
the Cristobal High School
Touch-football League. The
field was muddy from early
morning showers, and another
driving rain set in before the
kick-off, making the field im-
possible for accurate footing.
Within three minutes of the
kick-off, Farrell carried the
oval through senior opposition
for a spectacular touchdown.
On the extra point play, the se-
niors blocked the pass over
the goal. Each team kept press-
ing the other until the final
minutes of the first quarter
when Green received a well-
placed pass' from clever Captain
Farrell, and raced through the
senior back field 30 yards for
another touch down. This tally
gave the juniors 12 points at
the half and the seniors were
In the final quarters, the se-
niors began holding their
ground stubbornly, foiling junior
passes cleverly. Willett finished
the game for the juniors with a
hard drive around end for the
final six-pointer. The contest

Christmas Carols
Christmas carols are one of
the most beautiful parts that go
to make up the Christmas sea-
son. Their very age and familiar-
ity make them dear to the hearts
of all.
Here in this tropical country
we do not experience the thrill
that comes to those hearing a
sweet "Silent Night", or inspir-
ing "Cantique de Noel" wafting
quietly through a still, snow-
covered night. We miss that
crisp, white cold, but we have
such lovely compensation.
In front of our high school a
Christmas Pageant, in which two
hundred young singers will take
part, is going to be held.
The beloved carols will all be
sung into the soft breezes of
our' tropical night. Overhead
brilliant stars will twinkle as
brightly as they do anywhere in
the cold north.
Our Christmas spirit is not at
all dimmed by lack of a piercing,
chill wind, and soft, damp snow
to stand in.
As we listen delightedly to a
favorite, maybe it's "The First
Noel," thoughts of the lovely
story that is behind our Christ-
mas, and the fun that comes

The first half of the touch-
football season is completed, and
the juniors are still dominating
the gridiron. Come on sopho-
mores and give those juniors
some real competition.

If, at first you don't succeed,
try and try again. Such was the
case of Harold Rose, or Rosie to
you. Rosie ran fifteen yards for
a touch down, only to be called
back for the sophs were given a
five-yard penalty for being off-
side. Rosie repeated his per-
formance on the next play, and
had the same results. Finally,
the third time he succeeded.

"Reds" Willett is ranking as
high point man for the first half
of the grid period. "Reds" is lead-
ing by a wide total of seven touch
downs and one extra point play.
The high point man in football will
Captain the all-star gridders picked
by "Athlete Feets."

I wonder why Eddie Green's
face fell below his chin. When
he was running forty yds. for
a touchdown, he spied Mr. Hotz
running, nimbly oblique of him?
Perhaps, he mistook him for a
fleet-footed "scobie" that was
trying to tag him.

When two full squads of soph
gridders turn up for practice and
get Abe Anderson to coach them
there's something in the wind.
My guess is they wish to trample
the juniors and take the foot-
ball lead.

Boys! Boys! What the girls can't
do the boys have to finish. The
all-star girls volley ball team was
defeated two straight games by the
faculty. Now, faculty was that nice!

Playing their first game of
the season, the high school
swimming class is competing

squad, Saturday afternoon. Mr.
Neff is trying to build up a squad
which will sink the Balboaites in
their annual game. Probable
line up is as follows: Booth, Ro-

Rain or shine you will always
see Mr. Hotz, Gibson, and Pesco

Rose Star of 13-0

Soph Grid Victory

Scoring the two winning touch
downs by fast end runs, Harold
Rose led the sophomore team to
a 13-0 victory over the hard
fighting freshmen.
The sophs began a vicious at-
tack on the scobies at the kick-
off of the first quarter. The
greenhorns were slowly being
pushed back by a series of field
punts and reverse end runs.
Realizing that they were slow-
ly being shoved into their own
goal zone, the freshmen's main-
stay, Pescod, tried a field punt,
but it was caught by Rose, who
with the excellent blocking of
Hoffman, made his way over the
froshs' lines and netted the first
six-pointer. Through the guid-
ance of Wheeler, the sophs' cool-
headed captain, the frosh were
held scoreless for the remainder
of the game. Rose crashed
around end for the final touch
down and Hoffman scored the
extra point in a swift pass from

the CHS ALL STARS bowed to
Balboa Hi to the tunes of 21-14,

at the Balboa playshed, Satur-
day, December 10th.
The ALL STARS started the
scoring end of the game, driv-
ing ahead to tally nine points.
Gaining the service Balboa, with
their strong serves, managed to
take over the lead. Although the
Cristobalites fought their hard-

Balboa ended the game seven
points ahead.
During the second game, even
with the cheering and support
of patriotic fans who traveled to
Balboa, the ALL STARS were
defeated again.

star team were: Fern Horine,



The flashy blue and white
sweaters, which in the future
will be seen on ten girls during
the coming basketball season,
finally arrived last week, after
many anxious weeks of waiting.
These sweaters with Varsity
printed on the front and the
owner's graduation year and
nick-name on the back, de-
signate that they make up the
well-known C. H. S. Girls' Var-
sity Club.
The girls who are the proud
possessors of these sweaters are:
Zona Boggs, Janet Nesbitt, Fern
Horine, Georgiana Carnwright,
Jean Green, Jane Bevington,
Emma Jean Starke, Jean Ray-
mond, Marian McDonald, and
Ida Reynolds.

Girls' Varsity Club, the organ-

The Art of Whispering

The art of whispering has
fallen into the depths of talk-
ing and even shouting. I pro-
pose to establish an institu-
tion where a student can learn
to whisper correctly. To the
graduate of my college, it will
guarantee the mastery of the
void art of whispering.
The first thing that my pu-
pils must learn is how to at-
tract the attention of the per-
son they wish to whisper to.
This, in itself, is a fine art.
It should always be done with
the utmost caution and care
since teachers have a bad
habit of keeping their ears
open. There are two methods
of attracting the attention of
the friend with whom you wish
to establish contact. The first
way is the steam or snake
method, known to Zonites as
the "Panamanian love call." It
sounds like a reptiles vocal at-
tempt. This type of attraction
is very difficult for students
to master, especially since many
pupils cannot stand the sound
of a snake. To those of my
students who are afraid of rep-
tiles: I, therefore, teach the
punch method. This method
has a serious defect, however,
in that it can only be used
within the radius of the whis-
perer's arm. Great caution must
be used in this type, also, since
the student you punch may

Christmas On The

Dear Judy:
Christmas is just around the
corner, so, as a bit of news,
I will tell you about Christ-
mas on the Isthmus.
Like everywhere else, Christ-
mas comes but once a year
in Panama.
The display of children's
gifts is announced one day
eight weeks before Christmas.
It is held in the Cristobal
Commissary on a Sunday af-
ternoon. The next day the toy
sale begins, and by evening,
nearly every doll, gun, fire-
engine, et cetera, is gone. Of
course, the employees in the
commissary replenish the sup-
ply from the store house at
the end of the day, but after
a few days, not one of a car-
load of toys remains.
When the parents, relatives.
or friends buy the tops and
presents, they have a great
problem confronting them.
Where shall they hide them"
Maybe Mrs. so-and-so will let
me use her closet, thinks one
mother. Well, that's settled'
Sometimes, the parents aren't
so fortunate in having friends
and so, have to use their own
closets. Then, of course, the
children accidently open a
closet door, and lo! Their eves
open wide with awe and won-
derment at the sight of a
beautiful bicycle, tricycle, or
doll, or any number of desir-
ed things.
Finally, the Christmas trees
come out. Everyone is happy
then. The delightful smell of

Little Kids

Of all the annoying things
I know, to me the most exas-
perating are little kids; little
kids that scream and yell when
you have a headache; little
kids that step all over your
clean white shoes; little kids
that knock your books over;
little kids whose mothers are
always boasting about them.
To be sure, you could gladly
murder all little children who
are adept in these things; but
nothing could be more vexa-
tious than having several of

fir fills the whole house, and
brings a certain nostalgia to
the elders, but only joy to the
little ones who have no north-
ern Christmas to remember.
As for decorating the house,
that is done the day before
Christmas. The tree is decor-
ated the night before Santa is
Then, next morning every-
one is up early saying, Merry
Christmas! Of course, you
can always tell when Christ-
mas is here by all the noise
of horns, guns, and other
things a young child is bound
to receive. After a while, it
might let up a little because
the tots must go to Sunday
Adding to the Christmas
cheer, we have the blooming
of the flaming poinsettas and
the hibiscus, two of the most
beautiful, Christmas, native
flowers. Many are the tables
and rooms that are decorated
with these wonders of Nature.
At the end of the day, after
everyone has a lot of fun, and
has had his fill of nuts and
candy and the toys and games
are nearly vorn out from play-
ful hands, many sleepy little
tots toddle up to bed, where
the sandman will bring them
beautiful dreams of dolls, sol-
diers, and guns.
Merry Christmas,
Rose Margaret Stroop.

I believe that this condition is
harder to tolerate because you
must treat them as guests; in
other words, they have to be
catered to.
But while you are catering
to them what they don't do to
your house, your personal be-
longings and your nerves is
not to be told.
To begin with, you usually
have to eat in the kitchen be-
cause there is not enough
room at the table for you
When you have finished eat-
ing, you decide to retire to
the peaceful quiet of your own
room. But what kind of peace-
ful quiet is this that you find
there? You find little Katie
sitting at your dresser sprink-
ling your favorite perfume on
the struggling cat. Little Tom-
my is jumping up and down
in the middle of your bed. You
glimpse your powder box up-
turned on the rung. There is
an ugly scratch on your bureau
made there by the toy frog
hurled angrily across the room
because he wouldn't croak. You
kindly persuade them to go
outside to play, but you are
unable to have a quiet rest
because they are banging on
the piano by this time. You
picture the mess they have
made of your music, and how
glad you will be when they
go home. I wish there were
such a thing as silencers for
hateful little kids. God bless
the good ones!



Defeating the seniors 14 to 2,
in a hard fought game of touch
football, the sophs have captur-
ed second place in the Cristobal
High School Touch-Football Lea-
The game was a dead-lock
until the middle of the second
quarter: when Brayton inter-
cepted a long senior pass and
carried the pigskin to the se-
niors' 10 yard line. The sophs
lined up for a center rush and
when the ball was snapped back
to fullback Dunlap, he charged
through the seniors' line, and
placed the oval on the goal zone.
Dunlap received a deadly pass
from Wheeler and romped over
the goal zone for the extra point.
With these scores and the handi-
cap given to them, the sophs
tallied 14 points.
The seniors scored a 2 point
safety when Dunlap was tagged
in his goal zone after receiving
a long punt from Holmelin, the
seniors' fullback.
The sophs held their more ex-
perienced contemporaries, the
seniors, from gaining any great
amount of territory until the
final minutes of the last period
when the tall, quick-footed se-
nior halfback intercepted a pass
and raced 15 yards for the first
The next play found the sophs
asleep, for Ashton gained an-
other 10 yards on a sleeper play,
making another first down. Gra-

in vain for the time-keeper's

feeling note throwing since it
is the whisperer's greatest com-

pupils to combat this menace.
One way is to catch said mis-
sives, read them, and then let
them accidentally fall in the
hands of the teacher. In this
way, my students are slowly
abolishing the greatest rival
of whispering.
Upon leaving my institution,
a graduate can whisper with
the assurance that he is doing
it correctly. Each of my grad-

Seven students made the "A"

fact was revealed when the pe-

Commenting on the grades
for this period Mr. Cecil Rice,

"Our six weeks honor roll

to note that of the 61 pupils on

You leave on the Zone many ar-

Your willingness to supervise
activities on and off the regular

The students who carry their

Everyone admits that the noon

enlivened their off-study moments
with basketball, ping-pong, volley-

Believe It Or Not Ripley Visits CHS;

Tells About Career And Experiences

By Peggy Brown
Thursday afternoon, Decem-
ber 22, C. H. S. had a "Believe
It or Not" surprise. Robert
Ripley visited the school. He
told of the first day that he
started his present career. It was
twenty years ago, December 18,
1918. He was a sports cartoon-
ist, who, on this particular day,
had no sports cartoon, so he put
several sketches together and
sent them to the press caption-
ed "Believe It or Not". Since
then he has been the well known
Mr. Ripley said that he was a
very poor example to put before
a group of young students be-
cause he is called the "biggest
liar in the world." But, "believe
it or not, I make my living tell-
ing the truth," stated Ripley.
Last Christmas, he received a
Christmas card that was 141/2
feet by 7 feet. It was delivered
to his New York office in a

truck. He also received the
smallest letter in the world. It
was written on a single grain of
rice. Over 2,000 letters were writ-
ten on the grain. The man wrote
it with his eyes closed in order
to concentrate.
A question that appeared in
the "Believe It or Not" quite a
while ago, "how long is a snake's
tail?" which caused a deluge of
letters to be written, was an-
swered Thursday. Mr. Ripley said
that from New York City alone,
he received 1,800 letters with an-
swers, but not one was correct.
"A snake's tail is exactly six
times longer than its neck,"
stated Mr. Ripley. "Its neck is
exactly three times as long as
its head."
Ripley concluded his visit by
telling of the egg that he ate
in China. It was said to be 100
years old. Ripley holds in his
possession a piece of ground
containing several of these eggs
buried in an egg grave yard.

years a member of our "great

stationed for a three year tour
of duty. They will stop over in

Following graduation, Phalba
plans to attend the University
of Hawaii for two years, after
which time she will go in train-

Active in sports and an enthu-
siastic glee club member, she has
become dear to us for her jovial
personality and infectious laugh.
No longer shall we see her pa-
rading the halls with Tommy-
or scurrying through the halls
to catch her bus at noon.
Phalba expressed her senti-
ments for Cristobal High School
when she said, "There are none
better, and I hate leaving". And

From time to time, there will
be brought to mind this picture
-and memories will be refresh-

while hopes ignite the anticipa-

Isn't it strange how little con-

-and how pleasant the past-
how eager the future?
It is seldom what we have
that we want-it is what we
have lost-or see beyond our
reach that appeals most.
Without this oddity of human
nature, there would be no pro-
gress. We are given courage by
feats performed before us-and
encouraged by plans for future
successes. The present is that

For this issue "Athlete Feets"
has dedicated its column to Mr.
Phil Pesco, our renowned phy-
sical instructor who sailed on
the S. S. St. Mihiel, Thursday
morning for a brief visit to his
home in Washington.
Mr. Pesco entered our sports
limelight on March 6, 1938 and
worked with Mr. Vic Seiler on
our inter-class baseball league.
He took over the duties of phy-
sical instructor when Mr. Seiler
left for California a few weeks
later, and sent out the call for
track and field volunteers. Re-
sponses to this call came from
the ambitious sportsmen of our
student body. After a vigorous
month of training, Mr. Pesco's
track men met the Balboa Ju-
nior College and Balboa High
School and upset the latter by
one-half point, under the watch-
ful eye of Mr. Pesco. Our high
school track stars, such as: Bill
Forsstrom, "Hig" Highly, Jack
Halliburton and "Hopie" Hover-
ter were brought to light.
During the last period of
school, our interclass basketball
league was supervised by Mr.
Pesco, and the winning class
team, the seniors, was coached
by him. This basketball quintet
defeated Balboa and won the
basketball crown for the Canal
In the summer, classes were
conducted by him in all forms
of sports. For the first half
school year, he has officiated at
soccer and touch football lea-
On being questioned by "Ath-
lete Feets" about the trip, he

The National Thespians, Cris-

fold six new initiates.
Jack LaLonde, Jack O'Hearn,
and Marilou Anthony were so
outstanding in their first per-

they were initiated into the
Thespians immediately.
Another initiate, Alma Bramin,
who has been in the dramatic
club since her freshman year,
has acted in several one act
plays, including "The Florist
Shop", and "The Knife".
"Clarence," and "The Knife,"
won Alice Raymond her award

Patriotism will swell the hearts
of Zonites as they view our great
armada, the United States Fleet,
in transit of the Canal.
As other nations look upon our
national defense with envy, we
gaze upon them with pride, our
hearts aglow. Our ships may not
be as many in number as those
of foreign countries, nor our planes
as numerous, but the spirit of our
sailor-boy is ten-fold in rival of
that of other nations.
Panama will be a seething mass
of uniforms,-each and every one
of which stands for our defense-
symbolic of our own Uncle Sam.
Such sights as these renew the faith
of all Americans, we experience
that feeling of security so essential
to a country, and we know then
that there is nothing our boys
could not do to succeed.

The Art Of


The art of whispering has
fallen into the depths of talking
and even shouting. I propose to
establish an institution where a
student can learn to whisper
correctly. To the graduate of my
college, it will guarantee the
mystery of the vocal art of
The first thing that my pupils
must learn is how to attract the
attention of the person they
wish to whisper to. This, in it-
self, is a fine art. It should al-
ways be done with the utmost
caution and care since teachers
have a bad habit of keeping
their ears open. There are two
methods of attracting the atten-
tion of the friend with whom
you wish to establish contact.
The first way is the steam or
snake method, known to Zon-
ites as the "Panamanian love
call"...... It sounds like a rep-
tile's vocal attempt. This type
of attraction is very difficult for
students to master, especially
since many of my pupils can-
not stand the sound of a snake.
To those of my students who
are afraid of reptiles, I, there-
fore, teach the punch method.
This method has a serious de-
fect, however, in that it can
only be used in the radius of
the whisperer's arm. Great cau-
tion must be used in this type,
also, since the student you punch
may insist on crying out.
I denounce with the greatest
feeling note throwing since it is
the whispering's greatest com-
petition; therefore, I teach my
pupils to combat this menace.
One way is to catch said mis-
sives, read them, and then let

My Favorite Pet
My favorite pet, strange as it
may seem, was a small white
turkey, which I acquired at its
tender age of ten days out of
the egg. Naturally, this involved
getting a hen as a guardian for
it. We'll omit that part. It was
a great deal of trouble.
Living in India, there was al-
ways the fear of cobras and
hawks. So when a cobra did
nearly kill our blacksmith boy,
I enclosed "Bronxie" in his coop,
and religiously kept him there
for several days.
Why was he called Bronxie?
Simple, my friends! When he
was very small, and still rather
eggy (if you comprehend!) his
"gobble" was not developed
enough to yet deserve the epi-
thet. It was more of a "ras-
berry." Thence "Bronxie", from
Bronx cheer!
When about five or six months
old, Bronxie met his untimely
end. We found him in one of
Dad's fishtanks, drowned. It's
too bad! He might have made a
good dinner some fine day.
We had a grand funeral in
the back yard. It was really
worth seeing! After due tears,
he was deposited in his grave.
So ends the sad chronicle!

Tournament Made

By Girls' Varsity

The Girls' Varsity Club met
Monday afternoon in the field
house to make plans for the
coming girls' basketball tourna-
This tournament, scheduled
to start Tuesday, January 24,
will begin without handicaps.
Because handicap points can't
very well be decided upon from
one or two games. The club has
decided to determine handicaps
after the tournament is half
through. The handicaps decided
upon will be added to the scores
of teams in the first half. Re-
ferees will be selected by Miss
Barbara Bailey, gym instruc-
tress. At the end of the tourna-
ment, the losing teams will give
the winning class a party.
It was also decided at this
meeting to give girls who have
already earned sweaters and
who are entitled to extra awards
-"add event bracelets"-these
bracelets are gold with various
disks on them portraying the

drop and place kick.
Hugh (Cupid) Pescod promis-
ing to outgrow his brother's

Winning their first game of
the season, the C. H. S. twilight
league hard ball players have
made up for the soft ball play-

weeks, the squad met the P. R.

Top notchers for the day were

Win Handicap Games

Wnen the final whistle blew
for both of the girls' handicap
basketball games Thursday af-
ternoon in the high school
gym, the seniors and juniors
were on the heavy end of the
scores. The seniors swamped the
sophomores 32-7; and the ju-
niors edged out freshmen oppo-
sition by five points to end the
game 17-12.
In the first game Janet Nes-
bitt, the only forward, netted
point after point with the aid
of the two center players, Doro-
thea Wiley and Jane Bevington,
and the remainder of the fast
traveling senior team. Although
the sophomore cagers tried again
and again to stop this whirl-
wind, the seniors ended the
game twenty-five points ahead
of their opponents.
Janet Nesbitt and Peggy Mc-
Cleary were high scorers for
their teams with 32 and 6 points
The juniors met up with
tougher competitors than ex-
pected, when they competed
with the greenhorns in the sec-
ond game. With Virginia Keenan
forward, scoring the goals and
Nancy Magner, center, aiding
her, the underclass girls' score
was right behind the juniors
throughout the game. The more
experienced upperclass players
finally ended the game five
points ahead of their opponents.
Lois Crouch, junior, was high
scorer for her team with 10
points and Virginia Keenan was
high scorer for the frosh with
12 points.

The Best Boat Trip
I Ever Made
Surely there must be a large
quantity of gypsy blood in me
located somewhere near my feet
for every time I hear someone
mention a future boat trip I
get hot and excited. So you can
imagine how I felt when I was
informed that we would sail in
a week. I admit when I heard
my big superliner was to be the
"Ancon" I felt a slight sinking
feeling but this all passed with
the hustle and bustle of pack-
When we finally got aboard
after hunting all up and down
the dock for our trunk all after-
noon, we anxiously awaited the
leaving. The whistle blew, I fell
over. Soon we were off!
The first day out, we had
rough weather. The second day
a rainstorm. The third day a
windstorm, and the remaining
five days we were in the tail
of a hurricane. During the light-
er first hours of the hurricane,
the sea was so rough that to
venture out on deck was dan-
gerous, especially because of
unanchored deck chairs which
insisted upon chasing you down
the deck in fear of your life, and
when you finally turned in your
bunk you either fell out or hit
your head and feet alternately
against the top and bottom of
the bunk. Waking up the next
morning, (If you ever got to
sleep), you had a headache and
two sore feet the worse off. So
you can see that this is the best
boat trip I've ever had.

Journalistic Scribes Bounce Happily

Along Enroute To See The U.S.S. Reid

By Wylene Pool
The end of the pier finally
hove into sight, and Jack and
I, with our fingers crossed and
fervent hopes that we wouldn't
be seasick, took one last look
at land.
Under the personal supervi-
sion of Ensign Hale, we got into
the gig (we point with pride to
our nautical terms) and em-
barked on the bumpiest voyage
experienced to date. It combin-
ed the worst points of a very
rough horse and a roller coaster
that was missing on a few
cylinders. But it was fun! (P. S.
We didn't lose our dignity.)
They had covered one of the
open sides of the gig with a
canvas gadget, so our view was
a trifle one-sided, but we saw
enough to know that there was
blue water capped with white, a
blue sky, sunshine, and ships
(ships, not boats) all over every-
where. It was all very impressive
and not a little beautiful.
We were to visit the "Reid,"
one of the new type destroyers.
We will skip lightly over, if
we mention at all, the enter-
prising feat of hoping agilely

from the gig to the gang plank
of the "Reid". Let it suffice to
say that we did it.
Lieut.-Commander Carter, our
host, and in command of the
ship, was waiting to greet us as
soon as we had climbed the
side. At his suggestion we went
to his cabin (or should we say
palatial suite). We sat down and
immediately decided that the
chairs were most unstable (on
account of the recent motion,
don't 'cha know?).
Commander Carter showed us
a picture of his young daughter,
who, in a few years, will be belle
of any ball she cares to grace.
Meantime, sailors were trickling
in and out the hall with mes-
sages for either Commander
Carter or Ensign Hale. Finally
one arrived with the informa-
tion that lunch was served.
So down we went and met the
rest of the ship's officers. Our
lunch (very statesey tasting)
was served by real honest to
goodness southern darkey boys.
After lunch, we made a tour
of inspection around the ship.
Up ladders, down ladders, on
the bridge, to radio finders, near

In a joint meeting between
the Cristobal Civic Council and
the Cristobal High Student As-
sociation Monday, 7:30 P. M., in
the high school auditorium, de-
finite plans for the Carnival
were made.
The C. H. S. Carnival is to be
held under the auspices of the
Civic Council, February 10 and
11 in and around the Cristobal
Playshed. Most of the money
will be for the benefit of the
student activity fund.
Two of the main attractions
will be offered at the school.

tion of Mr. Robert Noe and the
science exhibit of Mr. Kenneth
A new way to distribute prizes
will be used. A central booth will
contain all prizes. They will be
given out on amounts of cou-
pons turned in. Coupons will be
obtained by winning a game.
This way, more expensive prizes
may be had.
Also at the Carnival, a queen
and her attendants will be elect-
ed. The winning girls will ride
the CHS float in the Colon Car-
nival parade.
W. D. Williams is in charge
of the general planning of the
Carnival, assisted by Mr. Fred
Baumbach, Mr. Frank Hohmann,
Miss Mary Moore, Mr. Cecil L.
Rice, Mr. Ted Hotz, Mr. Ernest
Cotton, Mr. Luis Finlason, and
members of both the Student
Council and the Civic Council.



Senior announcements were
put into the display window
January 24. There are 13 to
choose from. Tommy Ashton, on
the announcement committee,
said, "We're sorry it has to be
thirteen, and that it can't be
twelve or fourteen, but it just
turned out that way, and has
to be thirteen."
The selection will be made at
a senior class meeting next week.
Double elimination will be the
process. First, the seniors will
vote on their choice. The three
highest in favor will then be
voted on a second time by the
class. Thus a sure way of pleas-
ing a really large majority.
The cards are all good look-
ing, and selecting will not be
easy. Two are reminiscent of
the theme of last year's junior-
senior banquet-ships. Another

Present and Future

Another half year is drawing to
a dose. Do we have regrets for
what has passed, or do we feel a
certain sense of satisfaction in
what we have accomplished?
A great many of us possibly if
not probably, belong to the first
class. We mean well. We have the
best of intentions, but somehow,
we fall short of carrying out our
good plans. Perhaps, it was the
fault of too many good movies, all
of which arrived on week days.
Perhaps, it was the fault of our
overly abundant social life. Or, per-
haps, our extracurricular activities
tired us out, and we were too sleepy
and exhausted to study.
Good excuses, but they can't be
traded in for grades!
On the other hand, some of us
will feel no twinges of conscience
as we look back. We have managed
to see movies, engage in our social
life, and participate in extra-
curricular activities, but still turn
in our homework, do a reasonable
amount of night studying, and
make worthwhile recitations in
In the coming semester, the last
semester in high school for many
of us, let us see if we can't all
make this year one of which we
can be justly proud!

Randles Chairman

For Junior Rings

The junior class members have
begun annual proceedings for
the selection of class rings. At
a class meeting, Thursday, Jan-
uary 12, Ruth Randles was ap-
pointed chairman of the ring
There are forty sample rings.
The committee will pick the
most desirable ones. "I imagine
there will be about eight se-
lected," stated Ruth Randles.
The rings will be displayed in
about two weeks, and after due
consideration the juniors will
vote and select the class ring.
When asked how the class
would vote, Ruth said "We'll
have three ballots." It seems

Vinton Exonerated In Poison Murder;

"For Sake Of Science" He Asserted

Mr. Kenneth Vinton, Biology
instructor, was guilty of murder
in the "umpht" degree Monday
when it was learned that he
had poisoned three of his Bio-
logy room inhabitants-namely
a bat, a lizard, and another bat.
An autopsy revealed that these
victims died from curare poison-
ing injected into their bodies
from a blowgun dart.
Mr. Vinton pleaded guilty to
the charge on the grounds it
was all for the sake of science,
(like Dr. Clitterhouse for "sci-
entific research").
Now that Mr. Vinton's name
has been cleared, here is a bit
of information concerning the
experiment and the poison used.
The curare comes from a vine,
the strychnose toxifera that
grows in the jungle. It is pre-
pared by skinning the bark of
the vine and heating it in hot
water. The solid bark is strained
out after it has been heated a
while, and a jelly is left in the
bottom of the pot (or whatever
the water was in). The arrows
are then dipped in the jelly and
allowed to dry.
"This poison is reported to be
used by the Darien Indians,"
said Mr. Vinton, "and it is a
fact that it is used extensively
by the South American Indians
to put on their arrows and blow-
gun darts."

"An Indian tribe on one of
the Amazon branches below
Quito gave me my arrows," con-
tinued the instructor, "and since
no accidents might occur, they
are kept under look and key. I
use them in experimentation
For the first experiment the
other day, Mr. Vinton used a
live bat. He stuck the arrow
under the breast of the bat and
let him go. He flew up from the
table, looped across the room
and in five seconds he died.
For the second experiment, a
lizard was used. With the same
arrow, Mr. Vinton pierced the
lizard's tail and let him go. As
soon as the poison had cir-
culated he folded up-dead in
three minutes.
The same dart was then stuck
under the skin in the neck of
another bat. The bat was let
loose and he flew about for ap-
proximately one minute and a
half. He then descended under
a table and died.
"This poison is one of the most
deadly substances known," as-
serted Mr. Vinton, "It causes the
paralysis of motor nerves. We
are going to lool in the jungles
here for the vines. The experi-
ment showed the stability of the
poison, for the arrows were re-
ceived six months ago and they
are still destructive."

Still Uncertain

Whether the Junior Class

"It has been rather difficult

Wonder if you can tell us who
this is before the end of this
sketch? No peeking allowed re-
member! We believe its her eye-
lashes that every one sees first,
because they're so long and
wavy, like her soft dark hair-
and she flutters them so un-
consciously. Her literary ability
is apparent even in her quick
speech. Though she lived quite
a while in Illinois, one can easily
tell she has lived in Virginia be-
cause of the way she says "out"
and "mouth".
To be dignified, she puts on
specs every so often, and the
way she can write headlines is
a life-saver for many of her
journalistic friends when the
paper's late on a Wednesday.
Her startling lipstick and the
way she carries it off is the envy
of many another senior girl. Of
medium height oh goodness!

Gala Carnival Sponsored by Civic

Council and S. A. Making Headway

By Jackie Wahle
Plans for the 1939 Carnival,
sponsored jointly by the C. H.
S. Student Association and Civic
Council, are under way.
The Carnival, with the excep-
tion of the science exhibit and
the stage show, will be held in
the Cristobal playshed on the
nights of Feb. 10 and 11, from
8 P. M. till 12 P. M. There will
be taxi dancing and games of all
kinds, airplane darts, dog races,
horse races; rifle, train, balloon
bursting and hoop games. The
food and drinks which will be
sold will be prepared by the
home economics classes. An
added attraction at the Car-
nival will be election of the Car-
nival Queen.
The stage show, to be held

ances Friday night. The contest
is open to any individual or
group wishing to enter. On
Saturday night, the winners in
the preliminary contests will
compete for the Grand Prize.
The Carnival is being held for
the benefit of the Civic Council
and the C. H. S. Student Asso-
ciation. More than half of the
money made on the nights of
February 10 and 11 will come to
the Student Association to help
pay for the yearbooks, the paper,
the music department, the ban-
quets and the dances.

SGrace Notes

By Anabel Bassett
The Boy's Glee Club is going
to lend a worthy note of har-
mony to the stage show in the
Carnival. * *
Mr. Jorstad has outlined a
plan by which we shall have
three advanced choral groups,
rather than our present two. By
combining certain outstanding
voices in both the Boys' and
Girls' Glee Clubs, his tentative
plans are to merge these into a
mixed chorus, which will meet.
Wednesday and Fridays. Then
the regular advanced Girls' Glee
will meet on Thursday of each
week, and the Boys' Advanced
Group on Monday.
Mary Chiavo, a comparative-
newcomer, has been commended
on her nice tone quality and
diction by Mr. Jorstad.

There were more jittery peo-
ple and shaky limbs when girls
in the advanced group tried out
individually for leads in the
coming operetta.
* *
From all of the promising
prima-donnas discovered during
operetta tryouts, Talent Sweep-
stakes should contain some fine
vocal groups and soloists.
* *
Tonight is Stunt Night. Turn
out one and all-and see the
parade of C. H. S. talent.

Definite word has been re-
ceived from Mr. Williams, the
Superintendent of Canal Zone
schools, that the new instru-
ments Mr. Jorstad requested,
have been ordered: two French
horns and a basson.

as nearly equal as possible.
At the end of the season, the
players who have played in at
least 75 per cent of the games
will meet and select their own
All-Star team to represent Cris-
tobal High School in their an-
nual game with the Balboa All-
Stars on March 18.
Each team is made up of 15
players. The roster for

CHS' sports field is due for
an internal shake up, which in
"Athlete Feets'" opinion will
benefit our school when every-
thing is underway. Mr. Harold
Mate, our physical instructor, is
organizing our sports depart-
ment in such a fashion that
every interested athlete will
have unlimited opportunities of
participating in intermural ath-
letic competitions.
Support this plan students so
CHS will be in line for a more
closely organized sports division.

SENIORS CAPTURE Senior Cage Sextet

GIRLS' CAGE LEAD Win Second Victory

An inspired rally in the last
quarter resulted in a victory
for the fast-traveling senior sex-
tet when they encountered the
junior cagers in the current
girls' basketball tournament,
Tuesday afternoon, January 31,
in the high school gym. When
the final whistle blew the upper-
classmen were leading with a
32-14 score.
The first part of the opening
quarter found both teams en-
gaged in a deadlock 8-8. At the
half, the senior squad succeeded
in scoring a three point lead
with a long shot by Fern Ho-
rine, senior forward, plus a free
toss, to end the half 13-10.
After the beginning of the
second half, the juniors scored

school tallied five. Final score
for this game was 13-5 in the

races Lois was pushed to the
limit by Zona Boggs.
Roy Brown and Jack Green
performed brilliantly in both free

Mr. Gibson Tries New

System In Woodwork

While scouting around for a
bit of news, two reporters wan-
dered into Mr. Gibson's wood-
working class to stir up some
new work.
Among the things construct-
ed is an assignment wheel, re-
sembling a roulette wheel. Each
week when the boys enter the
room, they walk over to see
where the wheel has stopped.
From this wheel the assignments
are made without the teacher
having to assign the lesson.
On entering the shop, the at-
tendance record will take the
eye. It is placed on the right
hand side of the door so as to
make it convenient for the office
girl. This board contains the
class periods, and the name of
each student. As the boys enter,
they take a little metal bar with
their name on it, and place it
over the name on the board.
When the attendance is taken,
all Mr. Gibson has to do, is look
on the board and it tells who is
there and who isn't. If the care-
less boy forgets to remove his
name after the period, one point
is deducted from his grade.
The Woodworking class also
has an individual filing system.

Guest Vocalist Sings
At Surprise Assembly
A surprise assembly was pre-
sented to the students of C. H.
S. Monday, fourth period.
Mr. Norman Shirk was the
guest artist for the occasion. He
is a tenor. Mrs. Charles Ray-
mond accompanied Mr. Shirk at
the piano. Four selections were
sung, "Morning", "Clouds", "Song
of The Clock", and "Thanks Be
To God".
Mr. Shirk is from Reading,
Pennsylvania, and sings in a
church in the States. He studied
music in Philadelphia and New
York City and also attended the
same school that Lawrence Tib-
bett did. At the beginning of
the assembly the advanced boys'
glee club sang two selections,
"Good Close Harmony" and
"Kentucky Babe".

With the mid-term rolling by,
the senior class usually has a
few graduates. This year there
were four. They were Nancy
Owen, Alice Wiley, Beverly Ar-
nold, and Irene Laurie.
Nancy Owen was a new stu-
dent in Cristobal High this year.
While here, she was a member
of the Advanced Girls' Glee
Club. Before entering CHS,
Nancy attended the Maury High
School in Norfolk, Virginia. She
left for Washington, D. C. Jan-
uary 30 to visit with friends and
Alice Wiley was also a new
student this year, coming to our
high school from San Diego,
California, where she attended
the Herbert Hoover High School.

She is staying in school until she
gets a job. Alice was active in
sports and a member of the
"Trade Wind" staff. She plans
to come back in June and at-
tend graduation exercises with
the rest of her class.
Beverly Arnold had attended
Cristobal High since her fresh-
man year. She went in for sports
also and was a member of the
office staff. She is now working
with the Pan-American Airways
Company in France Field as a
stenographer. She also plans to
come back in June with her
class for her diploma.
Irene Laurie attended Cris-
tobal High since her freshman
year. She was active in the Ad-
vanced Girls' Glee Club and a
member of the office staff. She
is working with the Pan-Amer-
ican Airways in France Field.
Irene plans to return in June
for her sheepskin.

Tonight is the first night of the
Carnival and by rights it should
be a gala occasion. It would be a
shame, if after the time and money
spent by the Civic Council and
the school, a little thoughtlessness
on the part of some should mar the
evening's success.
Parents, civilians, and servicemen
who come to the carnival have no
opportunity to see the C. H. S.
students every day. And they will
very probably judge them on their
behavior Friday and Saturday
nights. If a few students forget
themselves, their actions reflect not
only on themselves, but on the
school as well.
The carnival last year was very
well conducted, and there were only
a few complaints made about the
behavior of the students.
The Carnival is even more im-
portant this year since it is ru-
mored that if the Carnival is not
a success, it will be the last one
held by the school. C. H. S. needs
the money which it will receive
from these two nights, for musical
instruments and for the Caribbean.
Each student can help the school
by having a good time and enjoy-
ing himself-and remembering that
next year's carnival and the school's
reputation depend upon his actions

After thrusting a lighted paper
taper into a test tube to see if it
contained hydrogen, he stuck it
(the taper) into his mouth in lieu
of a cigar. So fetching was the idea,
that the whole class was soon busi-

SAthlete Feets

Candy Cookies! Cake! Those
are the cries that could be heard
all last week while the juniors
were selling eats at the daily
softball games. The sophomores
will donate and sell candy and
refreshments at the games next
week to help in this drive for
girls' athletic funds.
Here's a box seat view of
"Athlete Feets" deductions on
our intermural baseball compe-
titions. The league has all the
appearances of being so closely
contested that all sports fans
will more than receive their
money's worth of America's fav-
orite sport. After the first three
games of the season, the Balboa
and Cristobal ball players are
battling neck to neck for the
coveted lead. While Pan-Ancon
and Colon are trying to outdo
one another for a chance' to rise
into running positions with the
leading teams.
"You can't keep a good man
down." Dicky Egolf of the Gatun
side of the fence has plainly de-
monstrated this at the intermural
games. Because of his running
handicap, Dick is unable to tear
around the sacks at break neck
speed like other baseball sluggers,
but Dicky has overcome this obs-
tacle by lashing the horsehide deep
into the field, thus giving his sub-
stitute runner ample time to clear
the sacks.


19-16 SCORE TOPS Pan-Ancon Trampled


The Pan-Ancon team nosed
out the Balboa squad 19-16 after
a six inning duel, last Thursday
The game from the opening
play to the final out was a hard
fought thriller, and the compe-
tition between the two opposing
factors was a new high through-
out the contest.
Pan-Ancon began a barrage
of hits in the first inning which
netted them two runs, and re-
turned to the plate in the sec-
ond for four runs. The third
inning Pan-Ancon smashed out
three more runs with Farrell,
Chase, and Ruley doing the
heavy hitting. They were held
scoreless in the fourth, but came
back with three added runs in
the fifth. The final inning prov-
ed to be the highlight for Pan-
Ancon; for the stalwart Balboa
defenses crumbled and the Pan-
Anconites registered the winning
total of seven runs.
Balboa registered four runs in
the first and one in the second.
The Balboa slugging machine
tied the score in the third with
two runs, and Greene, J. Pescod,
Robles, and Rose were the heavy
hitters in the fourth and fifth.
They brought in two in fourth
and seven in the fifth.
