Fore o rd

When you look backward down life's trails
A score of years from now,
It is our hope this little book
Will fill a need somehow.
Perhaps in bringing old time places
just a little nearer,
Perhaps in making old time faces
just a little clearer,
If to some future day it brings
one touch of merriment,
If to some reminiscent hour
an added luster's lent,
All of our days in making it will
have been thrice well spent,

Discus.rion in "Office Practice"

Mir. Frankx (to office force): I have been thinking that a bit of
training as a private secretary would be practical experience for each
one of you. (To office student) In case a student wishes to register
what would you do?
(/iJcc Student: I would get his folder from the files, and give it to
you for reference
Mir. Frankx: That is correct. And when a visitor comes, it will be
your duty to determine when I will be available for conference. (To
the students) Would you like to try this plan?
Students: Yes sir.
AMr. Franks: I will appoint one now for this week, and later in the
day I will arrange the schedule for the rest of you. That is all.

The Office At Work

In order to enable commercial students to gain a know-
ledge of certain business transactions and to learn how
business affairs are handled, things which can't be learned
thoroughly from a regular high school commercial course,
the subject, "Office Practice," was inaugurated several
years ago. Each year, four or five of the outstanding
senior commercial students are chosen to take this course
in which they spend at least two periods each day.
The main objective of an office-practive student is to
become familiar with the methods and systems used in
offices, and to acquaint themselves with tasks that will
be of practical experience to them. Also, the students
are very helpful in the office, for it would be very difficult
for one person to attend to all the matters in the office.
Answering telephone calls, taking dictation, attending to
Cafeteria orders, mailing letters, typing stencils for mineo-
graphing, collecting absentee lists, sending and taking
messages, and filing letters and papers, are many of the
students' daily practices.
Mr. Franks, the Principal, has charge of the more im-
portant duties of the office, such as registering students
for the future school year, discussing problems with parents
visiting classes, and observing the school in general. The
duties of the principal mentioned are but a few of the many
he has to take in hand, but it is enough to give one an
dea of his regular, every-day routine.

The clerk of the office, Miss Jacques, handles special
tasks delegated by the principal and takes charge of the
general office routine. With her staff of students, a high
class type of service is rendered to the school.
This year, a certain week was designated for each office
student to serve as the principal's private secretary. The
student's duties then were to announce all visitors, take
all dictation, take any messages, or do any little task
that the principal wanted done. In addition to this spe-
cial assignment, each student took charge of the office
for one day, acting as the clerk, and attending to all the
duties of the clerk, which are made up, mostly, of the
"deeper problems" of an office.
In summarizing, it can be said that office practice is of
a special benefit to both the office and student. First, it
lessens the everyday work usually found in the office, but
this fact can't compare with the advantages that are
afforded to the student as a result of taking this course.
There is acquired a thorough knowledge of business which
will help in securing promotion in almost any office, since
business affairs can always be controlled most effectively
by those who most :hoi3rughly understand them. Even
if one never works as a secretary, the study of office work
will be very valuable, for it will give an intelligent view
of the duties of those in business.

Mr. Franks.

The Of/ice

The office is comprised of four separate rooms, three
adjoining the large general office. One of these, the supply
room, contains general supplies and text books.
The Health Office is another splendidly equipped room
used throughout the year by Miss Davis, the school nurse,
and at the time of the health examinations, by a doctor
and his assistants.
The principal's private office is the third one of these
rooms. Almost constantly students, parents and visitors
are to be seen in conference.
The general office is a large, fine, well-light d and ven-
tilated room, where students and teachers attend to routi-
ne matters. A counter serves as a ba-'ier and resting
place for the students and houses an up-to-date filing

School students, stationery for immediate use, those
"awful" things, the report cards, daily attendance records,
marking sheets, mimeographed and printed for s, pro-
perty returns, test records, and cafeteria reports, are some
of the more important of the many records filed.
In this room we also find interesting and important
mechanical devices, the master clock and central fire
alarm. The master clock controls all period bells found
in each room. By merely lifting a little wheel, turning
another one to the right spot on a perforated cylinder you
are able to make all the bells ring in unison at any time
desired. The fire alarm box registers an alarm for any
one o the corridor stations and automatically sounds all
tire alarm gongs in the school.

The Story of How Our Publications are operated

Almost every school in the United States and its depen-
dencies has a newspaper. It is one of the most vital organs
in the school for promoting education, for informing
students of events and for making school more interesting.
Some students who work on the staff of the school
newspaper sometimes become reporters, managers, and
even editors of big newspapers.
The "Trade Wind" has done much toward making
C. H. S. more interesting and the number of participants
in different activities has increased because of it.
The year 1933 marks the beginning of our "Trade
Wind." Mr. Franks may well be called the founder, as
he suggested that the school have a newspaper and he
worked very diligently to have it printed.
In the beginning of the year 1933, Mr. Franks called
together Oscar Heilbron, who was then editor of the school
annual, Earnest de la Ossa, and Richard Reinhold to
discuss the possibilities of a school newspaper. The result
of the conference was the "C. H. S." as the hi-monthly
paper was first called.
Besides Mr. Franks and those already mentioned the
staff consisted of several of the "Caribbean" staff of that
The purpose of the paper was, primarily, to promote
the annual. Since there was a great deal of art work in
the "Caribbean" featuring the Central American indians,
it was felt that the students should know the history of
the Indians.
As the school did not own a mimeograph machine, they
were kindly allowed the use of the one belonging to the
Italian Steamship Company. On Saturday night, sten-
cils were cut in the Principal's office and the paper was
mimeographed in the office of the Italian Steamship
Company. On Sunday morning, a group of girls clipped
the paper and it was distributed .\lrid ,l morning.
The expense involved for stencils, ink, and paper was
taken from the funds for the annual. Each student was
charged fifteen cents for a subscription.
The "C. H. S." was so popular that the students voted
to continue it for the next year and to buy a mimeograph


The following year, Colin Campbell, '34, became editor
in the new school. Miss Moore was the advisor and it
was through her that some of the members of the present
staff learned how to write news stories, editorials, and
feature articles.
This same year a contest was held to give the paper a
different name. Mary Hearne, '34, won it by submitting
the name "Trade Wind".
William Beers, '35, was later made editor when Colin
resigned because his schedule was too burdensome.
In the school year, 1934-1935, the newspaper staff\ increased For this reason th staff was divided.
The literary staff was placed in charge of Mr. Hackett
and Miss Moore was given the management of the mecha-
nical staff. Edgar Borden, '35, was chosen to be editor.
This year, another great change has taken place.
Instead of the two separate staffs, one staff does the
work of both the weekly newspaper and the three maga-
zines. The "Trade Wind" staff has for the first time a
girl editor, Mary Goulet.
Miss Liter is the sponsor for the literary staff, and she
does almost anything from correcting articles to making
up the dummy. During the eighth period most of the
work of the publication s done, and Miss Liter attempts
to teach the members how to write articles, as well as to
outline the paper and write headlines. At this time the
dummies are prepared and often the stencils are cut.
Miss Moore is in charge of the mechanical staff again
this year.
The staff is grateful to Mr. Franks for the many things
he has done to keep the paper in existence.
Mr. Sullivan has lent a helpful hand many times, and
has given advice when it was needed, drawing from his
own wide experience as a newspaper man and writer.
With each succeeding year, the publications of C. H. S.
have improved, and with the extra training in this work,
given this year in the activities period, we hope to leave
the "Trade Wind" and the "Caribbean" in good hands.

Where Wonders Never Cease

In days of yore the man who could produce queer blue
lights, make steaming fluids, and cause other such miracles
was proclaimed a wizard, a magician, or a heretic. Today,
here in C. H. S. we have two master magicians and many
.an. freshmen and a few higher classmen are enrolled
in Mr. Miller's General Science course. This course
takes up briefly each of the many fields of science thus
enabling the student to choose the field he is most inter-
ested in. The work is aided by experiments made and
presented to the entire class by special groups. This gives
them practice for higher sciences.
Biology draws mainly from the sophomore class. This
course in taught by Mr. Vinton. While studying this,
the pupil learns of plants and animals. Twice a week the
class has two periods of experiments. These are carried
on by the class as a group.
Often these periods are spent in field trips made in
connection with the work done. Mr. Vinton has also
organized a Jungle Club. The purpose of this club is to
make trips into the jungle to study the wild life. These
boys, in addition to the education derived from it, have
a great deal of fun.
A hiss of escaping steam, the beating of iron bars, a
student entering with a tray of ice-all this and more is
included in a view of the Physics class of C. H. S. drawing

mainly from the boys of the junior and senior classes,
this course proves interesting to nearly every student.
The class has, twice a week, two periods of experimenta-
tion. These experiments are carried on by the students
who are divided into groups of two. Each person and his
laboratory partner works independently of the rest of
the class under the supervision of the teacher, Mr. Vinton.
The course includes work on mechanics, heat, electricity,
sound, light. The class of 1935-1936 made two very
interesting trips in connection with this work. One was
to the Panama Canal Ice Plant and Cold Storage Plant,
the other was made to measure by various methods the
height of Santa Rita Mountain.
The view on entering the Chemistry Laboratory class
is an interesting one. Groups of two bend over bunsen
burners and queer mixtures bubble in test libes and
beakers. This class, made up of juniors and seniors,
works in laboratory periods as the Physics class does.
Grouping is made according to scholastic standing. The
laboratory work is carried on under the principal use of
chemistry, and is more important than theoretical ap-
plication, as each group works independently. The
student's ability is his only limit.
Besides this Laboratory work, the class meets for forty-
five minutes three times a week with Mr. Vinton, instruc-
tor, for lecture, discussion, and test work.

The chemistry class has almost finished the demon-
strative stock experiments and some very interesting ex-
periments are being performed. Among these was the
thermit experiment. As it is a dangerous experiment to
perform Mr. Vinton did it. A crucible with a mixture of
powdered aluminum and iron oxide was placed in a sand
trough as a protection against the intense heat developed.
When it was ignited it developed a temperature of 1500"C.
and left molten iron and aluminum oxide in the crucible.
It is a process that used to be used for welding but is not
very practical any more.

Aluminum next to oxygen and silicon is the most abun-
dant element in the world but far from the cheapest. In
the form of silicate it is found in nearly every clay. If a
cheap method of reducing that silicate is found the owner
of the method has made his fortune. Christopher Matchett
has made a process for getting that aluminum from the
clay but doesn't know yet whether it is practical or not.
H!e treats the clay with sulfur in an electric arc furnace,
dissolves the residue in acid and on neutralizing the acid
a precipitate of aluminum ihydro':ide is formed. It may
then Ie broken down to aluminum. A great deal of time
and effort has Ieen expended on this experiment and al-
though Chris mnay not malc his fortune, his chemical
knowledge will have gained.
Now that the regular experiments have been completed
every experimenter has a chance to work on his own orig-
inal idea if hie so chooses.

On Fridays and Tuesdays one will find the biology class
on a field trip on the sunny beach or on a shady path lead-
ing into the tropical jungle. Many interesting things have
been found on these trips. They are brought back to the
laboratory and examined; some are dissected while others
are examined under the microscope.
One of the most interesting specimens caught was a
huge frog. This frog has eaten a lizard, several mice and
a bat. After eating a small meal like those mentioned
above the frog was X-Rayed.
A sloth was also brought in by one of the boys.
Several small alligators were caught and are now liv-
ing in the aquarium.
Many specimens of fish, animals and butterflies etc.
have been preserved.
Biology is very interesting especially to the boys but
some of the girls do not thoroughly enjoy it. Part of the
reason for the boys' interest is to see the girls squirm
when the delicate operation of di.c tin: a worm or some
other specimen is going on.

Where The Ages Look Down Upon Us

"The roots of the present lie deep in the past." For
this reason, two groups of students are this year studying
with Mr. Bousman World History-that is, history from
prehistoric times to the present, emphasizing situations
in Europe. This course has laid great emphasis on life
in the ancient cities of Athens and Rome. Members of
the classes have given reports and this work was enioyed
by all. During the second semester, Mr. Bousman held
class discussion four times a week. The fifth period was
devoted to a test.
The United States IIistory, required for graduation,
contains a larger group of three classes -two working
under the direction of MAr. Bousman, the thirh,, under
Mr. Sullivan. This course does not, as in the lower
grades, stress dates, battles, or wars. It strives instead,
to give a broad view-point of the causes of the larger
aspects of facts of the past in the hope of making more
tolerant citizens for the future. In connection with this

this work, a weekly study is made of current events with
the aid of Liberaty Digest subscriptions.
Students of today are active citizens of tomorrow and,
bearing this in mind, a group of C. H. S. students, largely
made up of seniors, elected American Problems to their
course of study for the year 1935-1936. In this course,
the students are exposed to problems-political, econo-
mical and social-which face the government today. In
this class, students read and studied the books "The
Making of an American" by Jacob Riis and "Readings
on Today and Its lProblems" byI Gordon & King. They
also studied the principles of economics and the monetary
policy of our government, so as to have a complete under-
standing of all its phases.
The results of these courses cannot be measured in full
as yet, but in the years to come, the rewards will be reaped
yv America in its better citizenry, its more wisely-run
government, and its more satisfactory international rela-
tions subscribed to by a broader-minded nation.

On The Threshold of Big Business

The click-click-click of typewriters, sometimes to strains
of martial music, sometimes at a pitch so rapid as to
sound like machine gun firing, sometimes at the slow
halting pace of beginners lead any visitor to the Com-
mercial Department of C. H. S. where, during the past
six years, Miss Patterson has trained many a secretary-
now working for the United States Government, in the
Zone, or efficiently handling correspondence in other
business offices in the Republic.
Students enter this department in their sophomore
year beginning with a course in General Business Train-
ing which deals with a general knowledge of the business
world. This is followed by Elementary Typing and
Stenography in the junior year. The theory of Gregg
Shorthand is mastered in this year.
The last year of the business course offers four subjects:
Advanced Business Training, Advanced Stenography,
Advanced Typing and Office Practice.
Advanced Business Training is divided into three parts.
The first part is for a period of eighteen weeks and consists
of Business Correspondence. Every kind of business
letter is taken up from the letter of adjustment to the
sales letter. The second part covers a period of eight
weeks in which Business Arithmetic is taught, and the
least eight weeks takes in a general review of geography,
spelling, learning to operate the adding machine, a brief
study of filing and other requirements for office work.
Advanced Stenography covers mainly dictation and
transcription. At the end of the course, the student
s'.ould be able to take dictation at one hundred words
a minute and should transcribe his notes accurately and
In Advanced Typing, besides being required to pound
at the keys with a certain amount of speed, one has to
do such things as tabulate, rough drafts, and should be
able to type sixty words a minute for fifteen minutes with
not more than five errors.
Office Practice involves such routine work as filing,
cutting stencils, mimeographing, and other work required
in any business concern. This course is given in the office
of the principal and is for the purpose of familiarizing the
students with the work mentioned, and to give them actual
The commercial course is probably the most valuable
one offered to those students who do not intend to go to
higher institutions of learning, upon their graduation.
For those who do go to college, the course is most impor-
tant, because they will have found much in it to use, not
only in other schools, but in after life.
Not only the students, but the community, also, owes
much to Miss Patterson for the department which she
has built up.

Sixteen students are enrolled in Advanced Stenography.
The young people are very earnest in their attempts to
attain success in this course, because most of them are
seniors and the practical use of their knowledge in the
business world is "just around the corner." Even those
who do not plan to seek their fortunes via the office route,
immediately, expect to assist big business on its road to
recovery after they have had some college training.
During the first semester, Complete Theory tests were
given to this class, and those students receiving grades
above ninety-five earned certificates of merit. O.G.A.
awards were granted to four students. This means that
they have attained a high degree of proficiency in the
writing of shorthand.
It is expected that the majority of the students will at-
tain a writing speed of 120 words per minute, being able
to transcribe accurately and rapidly. All must be able to
take dictation at 80 words per minute in order to receive
credit for the course. That standard has been reached and
exceeded by all of the students.
The Advanced Typing group aims for speed and ac-
curacy in working out their budgets consisting of five les-
sens completed weekly. These are graded upon accuracy,
form, neatness. They are made up of wills, deeds, letters,
contracts,-all kinds of documents ordinarily met up with
the office work. Three times, weekly, each student turns
in his speed tests, which last for fifteen minutes. Evelyn
Dwyer has the best record in these tests, having written
sixty-four words per minute with only one error. About
four others are writing consistently at speed ranging with-
in two or three words of sixty. The minimum speed al-
lowed to receive credit is 40 words with not more than
four errors. The maximum limit is the sky.
We are often told that no more need we learn to add,
subtract, multiply or divide, because all that is now done
by machinery. All large offices are equipped with adding
machines, but small business houses may not have them.
Neither do all concerns have comptometers and it is very
necessary that real Business Arithmetic be offered in the
course. These young Jasons of the world of business af-
fairs need much training along this line in order that they
may manage their own important financial transactions.
Hand in hand with ability to handle the purely financial
phases of business, goes the ability for clear, concise, and
correct expression-both in speech and letter writing.
"Business Correspondence" fills this need.
Other things of importance that are included in the
course are: a review of geography and spelling, filing, use
of the adding machine, and general business information
of the kind with which every student of business should
be familiar.

Manual Arts

Most people eventually marry and establish some kind
of home. Unless a person lives all his life in rented furnish-
ed apartments, he finds it necessary to buy various
articles of furniture for the home -chairs, davenports,
stools, tables, cabinets, chests of drawers, beds, etc. Is
the furniture he buys well constructed? Will it give him
service? Is it well designed and suitable for the purpose
for which it was intended? An important part of a wood-
working course in any school, general as well as vocational,
is to teach the principles of good furniture construction
through the study and application of these principles in
the construction of various pieces of furniture.
Closely associated with this main purpose of a woodwork
course is that of developing skills in the use of tools, for
it is useless to speak about the application of the
principles of construction until one can make a tool do
what he wants it to do. With the development of skill
there comes the pride of the craftsman in good work-
manship. The many craftsmen's guilds over the Uni-
ted States with their thousands of members and the great
increase in the number and kinds of small woodworking
power machines indicate that woodwork, either furniture
making or model building, is rapidly becoming one of the
greatest avocational interests of this generation.

Frexhmzcn izlaking Period Furniture
In the ninth grade principles of construction are em-
phasized. The pupil has a choice of a wide range of pro-
jects. He is also permitted to use the woodworking ma-
chines. But before this permission is granted him, he
must pass a rigid test upon the detailed instruction that
has been given him on each machine. No p upilis permit-
ted to run a machine without the instructor's permission.
Safety is stressed. Violation of a safety rule is one infrin-
gement which a pupil cannot rectify by bringing an excuse
from home. The pupil's work in the ninth grade is judged
on his application of the principles of construction, his
workmanship, and application of his time so that project
is completed within a reasonable time limit.
In the tenth grade, the same objectives are observed
as in the ninth grade with an additional emphasis being
placed on the principles of design, as they apply to furni-
ture construction. Another :hbi stressed is period furni-
ture, not with the thought in mind that because it is
old it must be good but rather with the idea that because
it had good design and good construction it is appreciated
generation after generation.

-fechanical Drawing
Mechanical drawing is a graphic or written language.
We must use this language in any mechanical descrip-
tion. If we attempt to describe in words the appearance
and details of a machine, or a piece of furniture, or a boat
we find it is not only difficult but in most cases impossible.
A photographic picture would not show the exact method
of construction and would give only the external appear-
ance without telling what was inside.
By the graphic language, mechanical drawing, shows
the exact shape of every detail accurately and quickly.
It consists of different views of an object arranged accord-
ing to a definite system, with lines and figures to tell the
The language of drawing has its own orthography,
grammar and style, its idioms and abbreviations, and its
study not only gives one the ability to express thoughts
hitherto impossible but develops the constructive imagi-
nation and the habit of exact thinking.
The aim in teaching mechanical drawing is not to prepare
finished draftsmen, but to study the language so that we
may write it, express ourselves clearly to one familiar
with it, and may read it readily when written by another.
Our course is general, not specific. After the funda-
mentals of drawing are mastered, actual drawing of parts
of machines and projects from the shop are drawn.

General .letal Shop

General metal shop is just t what its name implies. n-
stead of having unit shops, a forge shop, a sheet metal
shop and an auto mechanics shop. we have all of them in
one shop. All those activities are going on in the same
shop at the same time.
Our aim is not to turn out tradesmen, but to give a
taste of trade experience and information so that we can
have a better understanding of the other fellow's job and
the things that go on around us.
Cold metal work covers a partilullr lield -neither
machine shop work nor forging. As an introductory course
to the metal trades, however, it offers the usual trade
practices with hand t:iols and gives much additional infor-
mation. This work is good preliminary training before
beginning to run costly machine tools.
Machine shop practice requires tile same accurate lay
out work and bench wolk as cold metal, but it also requires
the operation of costly machines. These maichlines will
do work that cannot posidble le done Iby han I. By skillful
work, a metal shaving one-t.n thousandth of an inch can
be cut on our metal lathe.
It is realized that a comprehensive knowledge of forge

practice can be gained only through contact with a com-
me cial shop doing a wide variety of work. Projects are
forged which will give training in holding and shaping
I t metal to the desire shape and size. Heat treating-
tempering, annedling, case hardening are parts of the
forging practice.
Sheet metal work requires the knowledge and skill of
laying out full size patterns, then bending and folding
the metal to the desired shape and fastening in place
with rivets or solder.
Auto mechanics is given so that the future car owner
may bie ;a better buyer and operator. If one knows how
to adjust a carburetor, or a steering wheel, or p tchl a tire,
he is better fitted to operate a car than one who does not
know such necess:iar information. Practice is given in
overhauling motors, adjusting l akes. adjusting carlbre-
tor, putting in new wood work and upholstery, tire repai-
ring. clutch overhaul, timing, etc. Every car that comes
in the shop is more or less a new problem to s)lve.Thirty-
nine cars have been in the shop already this year. Most
were minor jobs, but some were motor and clutch overhaul

Numbers, and More Numbers!

C.H.S. presents an excellent program in mathematics.
Elementary courses in algebra and geometry are provided
for students preparing for a general college course. Ad-
vanced mathematics is offered in algebra, geometry and
trigonometry for students who plan to enter the many
fields of Engineering.
Ninth year algebra is taught by Mr. Franks, Mr. Miller
and Mr. Robinson. The course includes operations with
signed numbers, c IL.lirns graphs, factoring, fractions,
linear systems, radicals and quadratic equations. It is
desirable that the student de\clop the ability to solve
formulae and equations, and thus lead to greater famil-
iarity with symbolism. One of the most important out-
comes or values of the course is that of increased accuracy
which, it is hoped, will carry over in other classroom sub-
During the first semester Mr. Robinson's class in alge-
bra made a short study of "Problems of the Consumer."
Discussions on fake advertising, use of testimonials and
"high pressure" salesmanship were most interesting.
Reliability of brands, labels, and "Seals of Approval"
were also discussed. Recommended references were "100,-
000,000 Guinea Pigs," "Education of the Consumer,"
"Partners in Plunder" and "The Common Practice of
Plane Geometry is offered in the sophomore year. The
course covers rectilinear figures, the circle, proportion,
surface measurement, and regular polygons. It is the aim
of geometry to encourage experimentation, develop crea-
tive ability, and verify provisional truths.
Plane Geometry is followed in the junior year with ad-
vanced algebra which in reality is a continuation of the
ninth year course outlined above. The first half of the
term is mainly spent on a general review and in this way
more complicated algebraic expressions are introduced to
the student. As the term goes on, quadratic equations are
taken up in more detail and also the theory of quadratic
equations is studied. In addition to this a very thorough
study is made of the "Binomial Theorem" and the use of

Mathematics in the senior year is divided into two sub-
jects, trigonometry in the first half and solid geometry in
the second.
Trigonometry is another branch of higher mathematics,
one not chiefly relating to numbers although it uses num-
bers, not primarily devoted to equations although us'ng
equations, and not principally concerned with geometry.
When the word trigonometry is analyzed it will be found
that it is composed of two words: one, trigon meaning
triangle and the other metrein meaning measure. There-
fore, from this we denote that it means the measurement
of triangles. Trigonometry forms the basis of mensuration
used in surveying, engineering, mechanics, and astronomy.
From the above description of the subject it can easily
be seen the importance of trigonometry to a student in-
tending to go to college. The Trig class of '35-'36 was
taught by Mr. Robinson, and because of the fact that it
only consisted of twelve students, he was able to give each
much personal attention from which they derived a great
deal of benefit.
Trigonometry was followed in the second semester by
solid geometry. Solid geometry, unlike plane geometry,
which deals chiefly with plane figures, deals with geomet-
rical solids. The course given at C.H.S. includes a very
thorough study of the Prism, Cube, Tetrahedron, Pyr-
amid. Cylinder, Cone, and Sphere. Mr. Robinson in his
previous years of teaching has been making a c illeclion of
solid geometry problems which he had printed and dis-
tributed to the students of his class this term. Much
valuable knowledge is gained by students in solid geometry
which will be very helpful in later life.
The Slide Rule Club, originated here by Mr. Robinson
this year, aims to teach pupils especially interested, how
to use the slide rule. The club is open to upperclassmen
who have had at least two years of previous mathematical
training. A meeting of the club is held each Wednesday
at which time Mr. Robinson gives very interesting lectures
and demonstrations on the use of the slide rule. The school
purchased for the use of the club an eight foot demonstra-
tion slide rule which shows all the students at one time
how any operation should be carried out. Several mem-
bers of the club have devised some very interesting prob-
lems of their own. The most interesting and popular of
which has been the tri-section of an angle by construction.
No one has succeeded yet, but there is nothing like trying!

One of the most active subject in our curriculum is that
of Home Economics. The banquet given to the victorious
athletic teams was made possible only through the coopera-
tion of the Advanced Household Arts Department. They
also plan and help to serve the daily lunch in the cafeteria.
Some of the aims of this department are to interest girls
in becoming attractive, happy, and healthy; to develop
ability to live congenially among others and to adjust
themselves to family, school, and society. Two other
general aims are to gain ability to plan and use money
intellegently, and to understand possible vocations,

The cafeteria which was organized to give warm. whole-
some food at minimum cost to children coming in from
distant posts, is one of the prime features of our school
building. Under Miss Bowman's capable management
it is fulfilling its aims.
The girls who have taken the one or two years offered in
this school, have energed with more appreciation and high-
er ideals of the beauty of home life, richer in the experience
of homemaking, and with more self-confidence and poise.

Romance Languages

Romance languages and Latin mean much more in
C. H. S. than "Je vous aime," or "No hablo espafiol,"
or "Et tu Brutus?" when someone walks off with another
fellow's girl. The courses offered open the door to some
of the greatest literature the world his yet produced, and
if the well-trained teachers in this department do not walk
down the vista of the ages with their students, their. do
light the torch and leave them with an excellent reading
knowledge of French and Spanish and some ability to
speak those languages.
Mrs. Phyllis Spencer teaches the advanced Romance
language courses, French ten and Spanish ten, eleven and
twelve. In these courses she introduces the picaresque
novel, with the highly adventurous gentleman rogue so
loved by the Spanish, and the bright vivacious stories of
the French, so amusing with that light touch of Gallic
humor. Spanish twelve is a surgery of Spanish literature,
and in that course Mrs. Spencer uses her own text a very
excellent book, which has not yet been put on the market
but which will be published soon.

Year before last, oral tests were given to Mrs. Spencer's
advanced French group. These tests were so successful
(the students here ranking far above Ne', York state)
that she has decided to give them to the second, third,
and fourth year Spanish pupils, and to the second year
French class also.
Outside of class, various activities are sponsored by the
department which combine pleasure and work in a very
agreeable manner and help the student are ,ll'. in his study
of a foreign language.
The Spanish club, La Pas, open to all Spanish students
above grade nine, provided they have the proper grades,
strives to give more opportunity for speaking and hearing
good Spanish. It meets with the Panus Club, a g-oup
of Spanish ladies from Colon, who speak Spanish but wish
to learn English. In this manner, a great deal of fluency
in conversation is acquired. Lectures ale also given to
the club by prominent people and the members themselves
give plays.



Latin,, tudenl re,'ie cn modelss o ancient Roman

To encourage the French students, Mr. Langlais has
b:en giving prizes to the wo best pupils in the second
year of this subject. The first prize is a beautiful book and
a lovely bronze medal; the second prize is another hand-
some book.
Mrs. Spencer provides interesting work for her French
students by taking them on trips to French boats.
At a later period, she expects to chaperone the older
students to soirees with members of the French colony.
It is possible for a student to have three years of Latin
in C. If. S. if his course is well planned. On alternate years,
Caesar and Cicero are offered by Miss Moore in her second
year class. This year, the group began the works of
Julius Caes.r, the second semester. The first part of the
year was devoted to the study of famous men and the
Roman government. Very interesting projects have been
made by this class. Some of these were Latin cross-word
puzzles, miniatures of a Roman galley with two banks
of oars manned by slaves, a Roman house, a peristyle of

plaster with water and lilies, a Roman glri and her maid
in a garden, and Roman chariots.
Miss Moore, in addition to teaching Latin, has the
b-ginning French and Spanish classes. These groups
are made of students from any class in high school, but
they are often freshmen. The course here is necessarily
made p of much drill and memory work, b.eci.aoe in
French 9 and in Spanish 9 the foundation for iutdrt. pro.
gress in these languages must be laid. This French class
has a new reader from which the students have made
dramas. Sight reading is practiced tu promote fluency
in conversation.
The Spanish 9 class is read ng a new play book called
"Spoken Spanish" which they find provides very interest-
ing conversation.
The teaching staff is very optimistic about progress in
the language department, and hopes to provide more
int resting and helpful classes each year.

"All The World's a Stage"

The Pampered Darlng The Brown T7a Pat

On Visitation Day, March 13, two very clever plays
were presented to the parents and students. The first play,
"In the Spring A Young Man's Fancy," was a very clever
and funny one starring James Coman and a bevy of beau-
ties including Jane Bevington, Beverly Arnold, Marjorie
Anderson, Edith Davies, Ida Reynolds, Zona Boggs and
Andree Jeromee. The second play was, "His Wife's First
Husband." This play was most amusing and each of the
students played his part well. John Bozeman, the hus-
band, Theresa Goulet, his wife, Olive Aanstoos, his moth-
er-in-law, and Theodore Aanstoos, his wife's first husband
were in the cast.
On March 20, a group of three one-act plays were
presented to the general public. The first play "Alice's
Blue Gown" was a charming play about a girl who simply
had to have a blue gown. Virginia Thornton was Alice,

and Helen Carroll was Alice's "kid" sister, who had some-
thing to say but was not allowed to say it. Others included
in the cast were lacqueline Briscoe, Beverly Arnold, Janet
Nesbitt, Jeanne Eggleston and Kathleen Phillips.
At the end of the second play the entire audience was
exhausted from laughing at the funny farce, "The Pam-
pered Darling." Those in the cast of this extremely funny
comedy were: Alfred Stumpf, Macel Goulet, Bea Cotton,
Dan Meeham, limmy Days, Anna Kotalik, Frank Alber-
ga. Charlotte McMahon, Betty Jo Hamilton and Marion
The last play, "The Brown TeapAt," was a more serious
play. Catita Ecker, Jean Walsh, Edward Hoffman and
Wendell Arboin with their fine acting made the unusual
play a success.

For one tense moment, as the conductor raises his
baton, there is silence. Then, with the crash of drums
and the blare of instruments, the band is under way. The
audience settles back to listen with delight to the harmo-
nious strains which proceed from the instruments of our
practiced musicians.
Not once but many times has the band demonstrated
its ability before large audiences during the past months.
It has been the general stand-by of the Dramatic and
Glee clubs. It has cooperated in making Thursday after-
S-- noon entertainments successful. It has even been invited
to take part in functions which have nothing whatsoever
to do with the school.
The method of gradually practicing harder and harder
numbers, which Mr. Sullivan adopted, has had the effect
.Ir. Sullian, Director of giving the band a wide range of fairly simple tunes
which, with a little practice, can be used in programs at
very little notice.
Neatly dressed in their white and purple uniform, the
band presents a very pleasing appearance. Combined
with their talent, this qualification always excites a wave
of enthusiasm in the audience.

Cristobal High School this year has a music department
of which it may be justly proud. It includes two Girls'
Glee Clubs, the elementary group made up of girls who
have not had this work in high school before; a Boys' (;lee
Club; and the Orchestra supervised by Miss Elner. The
Band is under the direction of Mr. Suls'van. Also, Cris-
tobal High School offers for the first time a credited course
in Music Appreciation.
The combined glee clubs have presented a series of ve -y
enjoyable programs to the school and general public. The
clubs and Band entertained in March the Woman's Club
at the annual program. The girls sang selections from
various countries that illustrated water in music. Among
these were the interpretation of the American Indian and
the famous, beautiful "Blue Danube Waltz." The boys
sang the better known selections from Gilbert and Sulli-
van-"H.M.S. Pinafore." In May, the combined glee
clubs will again entertain the public with an operetta.

"Miss Cherry Blossoms." Besides these programs the
glee clubs have helped make the Pep Club programs a

the boys presented the operetta, "H.M.S. Pinofore."
During the year the solo parts have very capable been
sung by Muriel Mullane, Nini :il. y.... Phyllis Hyler,
George Booth, Victor lay and Asa Bullock.
Miss Elner has one class a day in the new course. Music
Appreciation. This course is offered in order that the
students may acquire that culture from good music. By
good music it is meant classical music. The class studies
operas, program music and absolute music These groups
are made up of credited compositions by recognized com-
posors. Everyone taking the subject likes it and it has
proved to be very successful.

EACHING art in the Canal Zone
must be a more interesting task
than that presented in other
parts of the world, because here,
nature offers both an inspira-
tion and a challenge. The pro-
fuse and exotic colors of the
flora, the blue of the sky and
sea, the volcanic influence on the land formations, the
international atmosphere of the cities, and the cosmopoli-
tan group of pupils present many interesting problems
for student and instructor, alike.
l,'- Gardner, the supervisor, has been on the Isthmus
six years and the results of her teaching have been most
gratifying to her and to the school system. Her aims have
been to develop a common ground of art appreciation for
all nationalities and to broaden the art scope of each.
Many interesting projects have been worked out in the
course of study, which begins with the history and folk-
lore of the native people and goes so far afield as to include
the world.
Homes of all kinds are studied, and the pupils become
versed in styles of architecture suitable for tropical lands
as contrasted with those of the rest of the world. Interior
decoration and color combinations receive great emphasis.
Transportation and industry lead the students on to a
study of international relations and the art produced by
the world.
Clay modeling as well as wood and soap carving and
great interest, thereby teaching the students patience and
skill in small matters. Notes are taken on the interior
decorations of ships of various nationalities visited by the
classes, and friezes of ships and sailors of different nation-
alities are designed. Since airplanes are becoming more
important to modern civilization each year, illustrations
in black and white showing night flying or bailing out are
done. Other means of transportation -trains, automo-
biles, and the everfaithful horse are carefully studied.
Because of the variety and the interest of the projects
furnished by this course, it has become more necessary
each year to the success of the school. Miss Gardner well
deserves the praise and cooperation of the rest of the fa-
culty and all the students.

books, we might discover Miss Liter, busy listening to
.M\:liacth." proof-reading the magazine, and assigning
editorials all at the same time. Work is really accomplished
here, though, and the junior and senior classes under her
learn the merits of good literature and the classical as well
as the newspaper style of writing. Up to the second semes-
ter the junior classes (Miss Liter and Mr. Sullivan) have
taken up the study of the short story, epic and ballad
poetry, and essays. Now they are attempting the drama
and-wonders never cease-there are no contracts!
The senior classes under Miss Liter have studied the
newspaper, the novel and poetry. Thousand-word book
reviews were their \\ ter'loo Now, they are making a

thorough study of poetry.
The lower classmen have as their teachers: Miss Brown,
conducting freshmen and sophomores classes; Miss Bea-

omores and juniors. These pupils are taught the fun-
damentals of grammar as well as literature, to enable
them in their later years to speak and write correctly and
to express themselves clearly. (How often we heard those

The Ghost Walks

BU Chrislopher .11alchel/ '"h

Nestling in a clump of trees on tl!e right Lank of the
Seven, stands an old mansion whose stones are almost
completely hidden by the profuse growth of ivy. From
any window facing the north, the spires of Tewkesbury
may be seen. Ever since the times of the Lords of the
Marches, it has been in the hands of the ..'-! l,.-..i.
Naturally, a house so old and so situated collects
throughout the ages, a host of legends and traditions
which are handed down from one generation to another.
Thus it happened that about eight o'clock on the night of
the fifth of September 1651, ohl Granny Montgomery
may have been seen sitting Iefore the ancient fireplace
expounding to Frank, aged nine, and Elizabeth, aged
thirteen, the folklore of the ancient edifice.
"Did you ever hear the story of Sir Gerald's _I,.t
asked Granny.
"No," said Frank eagerly, "Please tell us."
"Well,." began Granny. "it haplpeed that at the battle
of Texwkesbury, in the year fourteen hundred and--anrd-"*
"Sev enty one, supplemented Flizaleth, e ]hom exery-
one called Lizzie and who had read much more than the
average girl of that period had.
"Thank you, Lizzie." said Granny. "As I xwas saying-
at the battle of Tewkesburv the forces oif Margaret wxerc
defeated by those of Edward of York, and Prince Edward,
.Margaret's son, and my great-great-grandfather. Sir Ger-
ald Montgomery were forced to fly for their lives. They
headed for the house with a pack of Yorkists at their
heels. Suddenly the Prince's horse stumbled and threw
its rider onto the ground. The Prince lay motionless and
Sir Gerald reined hard and dismounted beside the un-
conscious Prince. Hardly had lie laid his body across the
neck of the horse and mounted himself than lie was cut
down by the blood-thirsty Yorkists who subsequently
murdered the Prince. But Gerald's spirit still rode on,
and 'tis said that whenever the life of the rightful ruler is
in danger, the ghost of Sir Gerald walkss"
"Do you think he walked when King Charles was mur-
dered by the Roundheads?" asked Frank with wide eyes.
"lie may have," answered Grannyl staring into the fire,
"but, of course, there was no one awake to see him."
At that moment Lady Montgomery entered the room.
Anxiety was written on her countenance. Ner face was
pale and her lips trembled.
"Little children must get to I:ed," said Granny, rising
quickly and going to the door. Frank followed obediently
but Lizzie lingered behind and. as soon as her brother was
out of earshot, ran to her mother.
"What's happened, mummy?" she asked, "Please tell
me. I'm old enough."
"Prince Charlie has been defeated at Worcester," her
mother said kindly. "1 hope the Prince escapes, even
though it means the end of hope of restoration." She
paused, then added fervently, "Thank God your father
is in Scotland with the troops there."
In due course the house settled down to the night's rest.

After praying for the safety of the "Bonnie Prince Char-
lie." Elizableth fell into a troul led sleep, dreaming that
the ghost xxas walking, Iecause of the danger to the life
of the Prince.
It must have been three o'clock in the morning when
she awoke shivering. She peeped through the window and
was surprised to see the ground covered with snow.
"What!" she exclaimed to herself, "in September!"
She nestled down beneath the blankets, allowing her
imagination to run amuk. \What if the ghost should walk,
now that the Prince's life is in danger. She felt a delight-
fully cold sensation pass down iher spine. She nestled
still deeper in the blankets and wished it would happen.
She turned on her side toward the door and gasped in-
There, silhouetted against the shadowy background.
stood what seemed to be a man clothed in white, and hav-
ing a sword at his side and spurs attached to his riding
boots. Slowly and noiselessly he glided across the room
and vanished into the panelled wall opposite the bied of
the now terrified Elizabeth, who had watched all with
staring eyes and open mouth.
When Elizabeth awoke it was well past breakfast time.
It hlal been past five when she, having spent two long
hours trying to convince herself that imagination had
tricked her. fell asleep again. And even then, it had only
Leen the signs of approaching dawn that had assured her.
Iler mother came into the room.
"Get dressed quicklyy" she ordered, "the Roundheads
have come to ask questions about your daddy."
"Didn't they question \you?" asked Lizzie.
"Yes" her mother replied, "but they want to find out
if your evidence will support mine."
"All right," said Lizzie, jumping out of bed.
She wondered, while dressing, if there could be any
connection between what had been told her the night be-
fore and the arrival of the Puritans.
She made her toilet hastily and made her way to the
liall where, around the table, sat several Ironsides. He,
who seemed to lie the captain of the band, was engaged
in an argument with the Puritan (whom Lizzie recognized
as a former servant of the family) at his side.
"If you are so convinced that the rider you saw last
night was Lord Montgomery," said the captain, "take
three men and search the house."
The soldier departed with three others. The captain
turned to Elizabeth, who stood with her hands behind
her back and her head defiantly high.
"Where is your daddy?" hle asked.
"In Scotland." she replied shortly.
"When did you see him last?"
"Four months ago."
"Did you hear anything unusual--like footsteps, say-
nlast ,..IJi
"No," she replied quite truthfully. Her forehead knitted

"No," she replied quite truthfully. Her forehead
knitted in a frown of thought, the depth of which would
have surprised her interlocutor could he have penetrated
beyond those intelligent blue eyes.
"I think that's all." said the captain. "We can do
nothing else but await the results of the search."
Elizabeth went to the window and stared out, thinking
here own thoughts meanwhile. Anything she did now
might create suspicion, she decided.
Half an hour later the Roundheads rode away.
Elizabeth made her way to her room, crossed to where

she had seen the ghost vanish the night before. After
diligent searching she found the object of her quest. Close
to the corner of the room there was a small hole that
might have been left by a knot. She inserted her finger
and jerked. A panel came away revealing a knob. This
she pulled. Almost without a sound the panels swung
backward, revealing a cavity filled by a handsome cav-
alier with drawn sword and grim eyes.
"Daddy!" exclaimed Elizabeth, leaping forward. The
sword clanged to the floor. He clasped her to himself and
kissed her.

Verse and Worse

By Charles Waxhabaugh '37

It was the Junior English Class,
That started on its work,
With every lad and every lass
Agreeing not to shirk.

Intent were we on work assigned
Prepared it with a will
Our purpose set we felt inclined
To draw from it a thrill.

Miss Liter stood close by our side
Her pencil in her hand,
To help us all and be our guide
To literary land.

Then up and spake an old-timer
One who had known before
Of the tasks ahead for the climber
And work aplenty in store.

"Last year we had contracts
This year we have had none"
The teacher knowingly nodded
With a smile for every-one.

Harker and harder grew the work
And then there came a test
Our minds we searched for thoughts that lurk
Each tried to do his best.

Upon the desk one morning lay
A pile of papers high.
"The Contracts" had arrived that day
Not ours to reason why.

Miss Liter passed the papers out
While each of us dad scan
The things that he must be about
And conquer if he can.

.\1,, Liter, I see some questions here
I say what may they be?"
"'Tis the work that you must try to dy.
If you would make a C."

"Miss Liter, below more work is given
I say what may that be?"
"The goal for which one has striven
To have a grade of B."

M'1- Liter, there are more demands
O say what may they be?"
The might be the first to name
The stories that were read.

My daily work did not exact,
The time it should have had
The big thing was the new "Contract"
Whose work filled many a pad.

The "Contract," was it not the thing?
All else could stand aside,
The A this work was sure to bring
It could not be denid.

In six weeks time were "Contracts" due
Our work must be complete
With happy heart my fears were few
My note-book was replete

Miss Liter gave our note-books back
An A stood on the page
But still for me Alas! Alack!
'Twas not all the wage.

I came to class quite unprepared
The oral work to do.
The "Contracts" worth was not compared
Except but by a few.

Such was the wreck of my "Contract"
The fault is mine, I own
May you be given the sense lacked.
In working for "It" alone.

Dy Christopher .lalchetl '36

Beyond the wall the long Atlantic seas
Shatter themselves to spume against the rocks.
Stirred to a fury by a stormy breeze,
They pound so even landsmen feel their shocks.

There toils a boatman facing Neptune's blast,
His forehead moist with sweat. The heavy sea
And ceaseless strain have wearied him. At last
He turns for shore and curses Destiny.

But here, beneath, behold a calm clear pool
Little disturbed by Nature's wrath outside
Man was its maker, Nature but the tool,
For man had crushed her fury and her pride.

Here bathing lads enjoy some idle game;
Divers pursue a most elusive grace:
Here plash a banker and his portly dame:
Wealth and contentment writ on every face.

'hat bars keep Nature from her Natural prey?
'hat line divides the calm from rise and fall?
What separates the toiler and his way
From wealth and its pursuits! A man-made Wall!

At the end of each month when we go home
With our report cards to be shown,
We see our parents' faces drop
And hear them say, "That's not so hot!"

Then father had to have a say,
But mother thinks of another way:
"To no more dances will you go
And not to another picture show."

Then we return with downcast faces
And ask the teacher "Why in blazes?"
He just replies with a sigh
"You can do better if you try."

Here's Health!

In order that all pupils of the school may enjoy the
greatest benefits from training in health education, our
high school course begins with a physical examination
given each year by the school doctor and nurse. The
proper examinations tend to act as a preventative of
illnesses and the spread of communicable diseases. They
also serve as a guide for instructors and prevent the stu-
dents who have organic weaknesses not discernible to
the eye from being harmed by too violent exercise.
Following the direct health examinations, come the
gymnasiums lessons given to each student twice a week.
These lessons are designed to help attain the various
objectives of the physical education program. Postural
exercises and calisthenics aim to develop a good carriage,
graceful walk and body suppleness. Games aim to im-
prove coordination of muscles, develop skills in sports
and to establish group consciousness; also to cultivate
the sports manship traits of cooperation, courage and res-
pect for the ability of others.
Competitive sports and team games of high organiza-
tion are used to develop skill in games which will carry
over into leisure hours of life after school days are over.

After a dummy tournament which was for both practice
and to guide the council composed of Mr. Vinton, Mr.
Seiler, and the four captains, Frank Robles, freshman,
Henry Jaramillo, sophomore, William Wood, junior, and
Howard WVII. senior, to select handicaps the se ison star-
ted with a bang.
The sophomores and the freshmen clashed in the first
game on January 21 at Cocoanut Grove, the scene of all the
soccer games. The freshmen had the one and only handi-
cap of /2 point. The sophomores showed their superior-
ity by keeping the ball in the freshman danger zone all
the time and at the end of the first quarter scored a goal.
In the second half, the sophomores scored two more goals.
Jaramillo and Robles played an exceptional nice game.
On January 22. the seniors and juniors clashed. The
juniors scored two goals in the first half as the forward
line was playing a good game. Only one peint was scored
in the second half when Cheney Moore kicked his third
goal, he had put the first two across, with the help of
Jack Clay who attacked the senior goal keeper from above
and Jimmy Christian who had charged in also. The juniors
won with a score of 3-0, because the junior guards over-
came all opposition.

sophomores put two goal; through the first half. In the
second half the seniors sneaked one through, but it was
not until the last minute of play that the seniors scored

quarter, and in the third quarter, another two making

The I tilalwn Da Comminllr

The annual Visitation Day was held this year on March
3. Instead of running the entire day, as has previously
been the custom, only one session was run. This session
began at 4:20 in the afternoon and concluded at 8:20.
This change was made so that more of the fathers could
To facilitate passing in the corridors, location of the
rooms, and to avoid confusion a committee was chosen
from the honor students. Each class had two represent-
atives. The members were: May Appell, '36, Rosemary
Cox, '36, Cheney Moore, '37, Mary Darley, '37, Nini
Stephens, '38, Henry Jaramillo, '38, Beverly Arnold, '39,
Bayard Colyear, '39, Mary Jane Phillips and JackO'Hearn
from eighth grade, and Gloria Phillips and Edwin Moore

from the seventh grade. The responsibility of the publicity
and organization of this day was given to Carroll Gallion,
At 8:30 o'clock after the regular classes a delightful
program was presented by the National Thespians, the
Effe Kube Klub and the C.H.S. band.
When a count was made of those registering it was
found that the number topped previous years showing
that the evening session was a success. Also as the reg-
istration was discontinued at the end of the class work,
many who came only to the program did not register.
On the whole, Visitation Day this year was a huge
success, and we take this opportunity to thank the parents
for their cooperation.


This year C.H.S. was well represented in the annual
carnival parade which went through the main streets of C

For the second time C.H.S. entered a float. Miss Fran-
ces Patchett, who was chosen "Miss C.H.S." at the school
carnival, reigned as Queen. Her court was composed of
beauties representing the different classes. They were:
Esther Neely, Thelma Melcher, Nini Stephens. Hua NWilli-
son, Helen M U\l, h i .ii Mazie Curtis and Peggy Brown.
The float was one of which all the students were proud.
The school colors, purple and gold, formed the color
scheme. On the front of a large canopy which shaded the
throne, were the letters "C.H.S." trips of gold and pur-
ple satin hanging from the canopy formed the background
for the throne.
Frances, dressed in queenly roles and wearing a crown,
sat on a golden throne. Two of the ladies in waiting sat
on the steps below the throne, while the others were

seated around the float. On the sides of the float were
stripes of gold and purple with "Cristobal High School"
written on them. The float was such a success that C.H.S.
Ia intends to have one every year.
The prize winning float was that of the Panama Canal.
Five C.H.S. girls adorned the float. They were Mary
Goulet, as Queen, Jean NWalsh Macel Goulet, Virginia
i / Thomas and Theresa Goulet. The two little pages were:
Pauline Mary Schriftgiesser and Frank Heite.
The Lion's Club had a pretty float of which Marjorie
P .,, 6Yost was Queen.
Besides having girls on three floats, C.H.S. was rep-
resented by a truck load of joyous students dressed in
Various costumes. These students cheered for C.H S.
during the entire parade. Mike Fernandez and his sister
Olga were the ones who made it possible for these stu-
dents to take part.
