Three years ago marked the beginning of typing as one of the most impor-
tant subjects in S. C. U. H. S. At that time 55 or 60 net words per minute
was considered a very wonderful record for a third or fourth year typist, But
with each succeeding year, enthusiasm for this subject grew--the old pupils, as
well as the new, working hard to establish a new record for the school. Within
three years' time the old rate was raised to 80 words, an increase of 20 words per
This year opened, under the direction of Miss Pendt, with a greater en-
thusiasm for typing than the school has ever before experienced. Minor contests

On February ll, the second contest was held, also at Sutter Creek, with
Jackson competing. All places were taken by Sutter Creek typists.
Our iirst trip was on February 20, when we had a return contest with Galt.
We were a very happy bunch that came home that evening, and surely, why
not? We "brought home the bacon," allowing Galt only one place out of 18.
The Elk Grove contest marked another epoch in our typing history, and
although Elk Grove came first, -taking six places, Sutter Creek closely followed,
with five places. Ruth Thompson, our champion typist, made her best record
in this contest, writing 81 words, which entitled her to a ruby-pearl pin pre-
sented by the Underwood Company.
Two days later we Went to Manteca to compete with Manteca's typists.
The result of this contest was about the same as the others, Sutter Creek taking
most of the honors.
Our big contest. the Mother Lode, was held at Sutter Creek, March 13,
with 10 schools and 84 contestants participating. We won five places, Wilma
Deaver, a first year student, winning the accuracy cup for the school.
In the Sacramento Valley Contest, Sutter Creek stood highest of 27 schools,
winning 6 places, the H. S, Crocker Cup for unlimited speed and the Advertis-
ing Club trophy for Novice Accuracy.
