The Polygram, Volume XI, No. 3 [page 1]
Volume XI High Spots to Ventura We started off for Ventura Friday ' noon after a rousing rally by the student body in front of the Administration Building. After several other delays we managed to get out of town safely . Everything went lovely until about three miles this side of Los Alamos; then the trouble started. A car was sla!led along the side of the road and, being gentlemen, we stopped to see if we could be of any help. There were three very good looking girls in the car, so we wanted to help all the more Finally, Carroll ended the trouble by towing them into Los Alamos. They were from Hollywood and Carroll and Ns load wouldn 't talk about anything else but "their Hollywood movie queens." We stopped in Santa Barbara to fill up with gas. Varian again had to have his fun and proceeded to get out in the middle of the street and direct traffic. As a traffic officer Eric is the bnnk. After arriving in Ventura and getting rooms for the evening, we went to t-he restauJ:a.nt-to-pu?t-on-"f.he nose?bHg. It's a wonder that everyone was not run out before we went in. The proprietor is still wondering where all the silverware went. Maybe some of the fellows could tell him where some or it went. We had our music free e"en if you are supposed to pay a nickel for each piece of music. Buck was responsible for this. We hear U,ey are going to send him a bill for the music. That night in the hotel is one that will be remembered by some for a good many days to come. Poor Hea,?y has it bud. and, ac~ording to AI, his case should be look ed into. AI wao awakened during the night by Heavy's coonin~ lovingly. " Bernice, my be?loved Berni~e." This may not mean anything, but we have our suspicions. Poor littl e Bill Lee got lonesome in the night and proceeded to crawl into bed with AI and Heavy, much to their disgust. Bill had another little exper?ience when his shoe was thrown down the stairs. Whenever be went to get it. some lady would appear a nd Bill, reing bashful , would run as though someone was after him. Prescott also must have gotten lone?some in bed. He crawled in with Bill. Maybe that was the reason Bill left. Who knows? We got through Saturday morning n?ithout misha:p, although several were late for lunch. They have been unable to explain their tardiness. After the game we came as far as Santa B'arbara for dinner. We ate at a cafeteria and some of the fellows are wondering why the meals are so high in cafeterias. We are still wonder?ing what became of Call and his car?load in Santa Barbara. We stopped again at Los Ala:nos a.nd went into a dance they were hav?ing there. Everyone looked at us a nd wanted to know when the war was o,?er. They must have seen Miller first with his banged-up eye. With an uneventful journey the rest of the way home, we were all glad to get home and get some sleep once more. But one thing still puzzles us and that is the way Mr. Cunningba:n's car {if it can be called that) ran so well. It passed one car on the entire trip-it was standing still. SAN LUIS OBISPO, OCT. 22, 1925. Sidelights On Stanford Trip Mr. Cunningham's Chevrolet "Rolls Ruff" went along pretty well until be?cause of lack of gas it ceased to func?tion. Mr. Agosti threw him a life line and towed him to Salinas. A funny thing about his car is that it doesn't eat any spark plugs this year as it tlid last. Coming back his car went along peacefully until it started to burn out headlights. After a complete over?hauling it managed to get back home. Walter and hi s car are hard to beat. The car had a flat tire, but Walter had enough hot air t:o make u p for it. Walter and Prescott disappeared right after the game and it is rumored that they went riding with a couple of the fair sex; anyway, two extra .pas?sengers went to San Jose with t hem. Albert Call is not on speaking terms with the San Jose police force. No it's not on acount of the speed of his untrustworthy Chevrolet, but on a c?count of the noises which issue forth from it. Joh n ny Carroll's Forrl went all the way to Stanford and back without a whimper, but you can't blame it-a "Ford is a Ford " ? Bill Lee says a. fellow tried to era~~! in be:! w;th him; he was just getting some of his own medicine. We a ll s!e;>t in single beds, so Heavy was very lonely without Alfred to hug and kiss during the night. Several cars full of rooters went u p to cheer for the tea m and their cheer?ing certainly was appreciated. Several old students were present a t the game to help in the cheering. After the game the team went over and saw Sacramento Jr. College play the Frosh. The score was 7-0 in favor of the Frosh. Poly has a game with Sacramento after Thanksgiving and from the looks of the Sacramento team we will have our hands full. Immediately after the Frosh game we ate our supper and started for h ome. The home trip was not very eventful. Walter's car pu t on a burst of speed and beat the rest of us home. This wasn't due to speed alone, but in the fact that Walter ran off from the rest of us when we wer e waiting for one 'of the "Chevrolets." The whole trip was enjoyed by everyone and the score made in the game was especially satisfying. Assemby Oct. 14? 1925 Dr. Crandall gave a most welcome announcement on behalf of Mr Ride?out, the commander of the American Legion. The Elks are presenting us with a large silk flag on a staff and the American Legion, not wishing to be ou tdone, is presenting us with a bat?talion flag of the same silk material as the American flag. It will be in green and gold. It has always been the custom of every school or regi?ment to have on their flag an emblem representing their particular order. Poly had n one of these things. There?fore it was necessary to vote for it. Several animals were suggested. The two causing t he most debating were the mule and the mustang. The mustang was given the majority of the votes. Therefore, Poly's flag will bear t he symbol of a mustang in the center of it. Our yells and school songs will all ring with the name, which will henceforth, wherever or whenever mentioned, suggest "Poly." Home-Coming Day Plans At this autumnal season of the year when the fruits of the year's work have been harvested, Poly cele?brates an event that is one of the happiest times of the year-Home?Coming Day. This day is usually handled through the Student Affairs Committee and as the date of our h ome-coming has been set for October 31 that body has met to decide t he procedure. It was decided that the day be placed in the hands of a home-coming com ?mittee to consist of the S. A. C. as a whole with several additional facul?ty and student body members. This committee is in direct charge of all things pertaining to that day and the various organizations will be asked to contribute nothing except the loyal support of their mem"bers. The Home-Coming Committee, con?sisting of Mr. Agosti, chairman, and Miss Chase, Dr. Crandall, Mr. Rath?bone, Mr. Knott, Captain Deuel, Mr. Preuss, Mr. MacFarland, Miss Jordan, Mr. Perozzi, Chester Davis, Niels Jeppesen, Orvis Hotchkiss, Harriet Wright, Wilbur Miller, Doris Westen?dorf, Fred Louis , Carol Cavanaugh, Alfred Young, Rae Mayhall, Jimmie Simpson, Howard Koster, George Isola, Eitner Tognazzini, Ray Boysen, George Eliot-has met and formu?lated plans which are being put into action. The committee as a whole was divided into several sub-commit?tees which were in turn divided. These committees are-communica?tions committee for the purpose of notifying the Alumni, a banquet com?m ittee, a dance committee and a re?ception committee. The communication committees are rapidly completing t heir work of sending out some peppy cards and letters and with the response of last year to use as a comparison we may expect a "whopper" crowd here around the thirty-first. The Reception Committee announ?ces a very lively program beginning with a big bonfire rally in town on Friday night. Saturday morning will be spent in the registration of the Alumni and visits around the ground. At noon a free luncheon of coffee, buns, beans and pie will be served to the Alumni and dormitory boys in Poly Grove. In the afternoon there will be some preliminary stunts to the b:g event of the day-a football game between Bakersfield and Pol y. At six o'clock in the evening there will be a banquet for t he Alumni, the members of t he first football squad, the seniors and the faculty in the school Dining Ha ll. F ollowing the dance will be the closing event of the day-the big Home-Coming Ball. The Banquet Committee is rapidly completing plans for a fine banquet. The menu will consist of bouillon, vegetable salad, mock duck, mashed sweet potatoes, french beets, light biscuits and butter, marshmallow whip and coffee. There "ill be lots of work attached to this committee and the earnest co-operation of the stu?dent body is requested. The Dance Committee is p lanning for the biggest and most successful dance of the year. Mrs. Brown's or?chestra has been secu red. The hall will be brightly decorated and a booth of Hallowe'en favors promises to add to t he pep of the affair. This committee will also need much assist- No. 3 Faculty Meet The old members of the faculty en?tertained t he new members at the Santa Maria I nn, October 9. A banquet was served and planned by the wives of the ?old faculty. Mrs. Rathbone was in charge of the table decorations which were very effective. The speeches were delivered by Dr. Crandall, Miss Chase, Mr. Rathbone, and Mr. Knott. Mrs. Fuller gave a very pleasing vocal selection. Dr. Wilder was toastmaster for the occa?sion.? After the banquet a social time and dancing ensued. The evening was for the purpose of getting acquainted, which was effec?tively done. Frank Quinonez Hurt Frank Quinonez s uffered a broken collarbone when be fell from the back of Gordon Wickan's scooter on Octo?ber eleventh. This is but another case of the "eter?nal feminine" proving disastrous to the masculine sex. Tbe car had just left Harriet Wright at her home on Buchou St. and "Keeno" was still looking hack and waving at the young lady when the car turned from Buchan ou Broad. Altho the car was mov?ing slowl y Frank was thrown off. breaking his r ight collarbone. F r ank's mother arrived here Friday night and took Frank home to Los Angeles on Saturday night. We wish him a speedy r ecovery. Girls in Crash Harriet Wright, Avalyn Schlic~t. and E ll en Margaret Truesdale were m u verv exciting auto wreck on Satur?day, October lOth. The three girls, with two small boys, were crossing :Monterey street on Es?sex street in Miss Wright's car. They bad reached the little !.>ridge at the foot of the bill when a car on Mon?terey street swerved over and knocked the girl s' car off into the ditch. All three girls were very badl y frightened but Miss Schlicht was t he only one sustaining any injuries. ance and if you are not asked to serve on a special committee, help o.ut b.Y coming to the dance and makmg 1t a success. This whole program must be p~t over in the very best way, and 1t is up to the student body to do it. There will be lots of work attached . to it but if each one does his share, no one will have too much to do. Some of you who have not devel?oped a genuine affection for the school may not think so, but, in the future you will be returning to the school ' and will want your Home?Coming Days to be happy ones. ?So earn your good time in the future by putting this thing over big!
