Washington School Finishes a
Close Second With the
James Lick Third
The Southsidc playgrounds
Avcre the scene of a splendid event
in school athletics last Saturday,
when the boys of the city's gram
mar schools met in competition at
the second annual championship
outdoor field day of the Public
Schools Athletic league. Unfor
tunately the rain interrupted pro
ceedings right at the height of the
excitement and the remainder of
the events were postponed until
the following Wednesday.
The meet had progressed in fine
fashion up to the time of the first
raindrops and several of the
schools had a splendid chance of
carrying off the final honors.
While the Washington was
ahead, its score of 16 points was
being narrowly crowded by the
Laguna Honda's score of 14, and
the James Lick's score of 13. The
Everett and John Swett schools
followed with 10 and 9 points, re
Excitement was running high
when the lowering clouds decided
to take a hand in the matter, much
to the disgust of the young ath
letes. Though lightly clad and
shivering with the cold, they
begged to go on with the events
and gamely refused to quit their
posts, but older heads were put
together and it was decided to call
off the remaining events and post
pone the finish until Wednesday.
There were 18 events scheduled
on the program, of which the tugs
of-war proved to be the most
popular with the spectators. lir

class the James Lick was first and
Hearst second, while the Irving
AT. Scott won the 95 pound class
W. McDonald of the Everett in
the 95 pound class made a cred
itable performance by winning the
high jump with four feet one inch,
and H. Ludwig of the Horace
Maun won the high jump in the
115 pound class. But it takes
the Washington school boys to
throw the basket ball. (J. Bada
racco and 'J. Callero, both midgels
of 80 pounds ai the Washington
school, took first and second, re
.-.pectively, in this event.
In the rope climbing contest Lβ
Moyne of the James Lick cap
tured first place in the unlimited
class and L. Kronk of Lick was
first in the 115 pound class.
Uolton Hildebrand of the James

probably know, is situated on the
slope of Russian hill, and from its
northern windows can be seen
the waters of the bay, Alcatraz
and the Marin county hills. There
is an inexhaustible fund of mate

girls have made good use of it.
Among other things will be an
article on the people of note who
have made their homes on Rus
sian hill, and also an article on
the past graduates of Hancock
who have distinguished them
selves in the eyes of the World.
Then there will be interesting
writeups dealing with current
topics, and also the life and work
of the school.
Aside from the reading matter
there will be a number of original
cartoons, pictures of the edition
contributors, as well as photo
graphs of boys and girls who
are distinguishing themselves in
various ways. Also there will be
reproduced a. numbeV of tiny
shapshots taken by one of the
students dealing "with different
bits»of local color to be found in
the vicinity of the school.

will contribute largely to the suc
cess of the Hancock school edi
