PATTERSON HIGH SCHOOL
QBLII' P111 ihigh Svrhnnl
"Speaking of the high school-by the way-when are we going to have
a new building?" Often one hears this question propoundecl. Never does
anyone ask if we need a new structure, but always when will it bel Two
glances at the exterior and one glance at the interior will convince the most
conservative that a change is imperative. With more and better apparatus,
with desks and material more convenient,-in fact, with a modern building
equipped with the usual accessories of a high school, Anderson Union
lligh School could be at the head of the list of educational institutions of
its kind. ".lflliiciency" should he our motto,-always.
'l'he grade of work done at present is as high as can be expected under
the conditions. 'llhe Lfniversity examiner reports that our graduates will
this year he permitted to enter the University without examination. But
we can never hope to receive formal accrediting until we have the proper
equipment. This leaves the graduates of the future in a somewhat pre-
carious position, for a class with an unusually good record may be
accredited whereas one slightly below the best may not. This is not true
in schools with good equipment, which are on the regularly accredited
list and have nothing to fear as long as a good average standard is
ln numbers our school is larger than many others that are far better
housed. Patterson lligh School, tsee illustration abovel for example, with
fifty-one pupils and incidentally, six teachers, has a 350,000 building. The
need for such a structure was felt by the whole community and the bonds
were voted without any special campaign at all. There are now accommo-
dations for cooking, sewing, drawing and manual training. There are physics
and chemistry laboratories, a commercial room, an assembly hall and a gymna-
sium. The advantages of such a structure are obvious.
The Rio Yista joint Lfnion High School tsee illustration page sevenl,
with an enrollment of fifty-seven, enjoys a building which cost 5l349,000, not
including architects fees, furnace and other expenses. Among several desir-
able features, there is an assembly hall with a seating capacity of 400 and six
class-rooms. The bonds for Dixons 360,000 structure were defeated the
first time, but by dint of perseverance, carried later. Although the school
includes nine grammar districts, the enrollment is but ninety-two. ' Here are
offered courses in the classics, sciences, commerce and home economics.
The need for newer and better accommodations was so strongly felt at
Fair Oaks that no campaign was necessary to secure the bonds for the San
Juan Union High School, although the tax-rate was very high, sixty-six cents
per one hundred dollars. The San juan Union High School has live teach-
ers now and an enrollment of ninety-four, but foresight has been used to the
extent of engaging seven teachers for the coming school year, anticipating an
increased attendance. XVith the increased faculty and capacity. there have
been planned thorough literary, scientihc, domestic, and commercial courses.
"with a view to meeting the needs of the pupils of the community." The
principle involved is that "the school is a community institution and should
serve the community educationally and socially in every way possible."
Besides the evident advantage of the convenience, the pupil gains interest
through the fresh, pleasant attractiveness of his surroundings. XVe cannot
deny the inHuence of environment, especially on the mind of the young student.
X1Vithout doubt, there would be fewer students leaving school in the middle
of the term and more new ones entering, it the surroundings were more
alluring. ln a Hne, new building, our attendance would be doubled in a year.
ls anything but the best good enough for your own boys and girls, and
those of your friends,-Oh, ye taxpayers? Do not the present conditions
make a mute appeal for something better? Are you going to allow your
neighbor counties to call you unprogressive? We leave you to draw your
own conclusions. Tlrlli F:XCUlfl'Y.
Sunset in Anhvrznit
By l:R.fXNClSS M. -lnssex, '16
The golden sun has almost reached his goal,
He quickly drops to rest behind the hills,
Hut Hings the glory of his march from pole
To pole. ,The Heecy clouds in rolls and rills
Are brightened mystically with every shade:
I look once more, the fairy scene has passed
And streaks and veins of gold are deftly laid
ln royal clouds of purple hue, all massed:
Then night engulfs all but the joy on mem'ry cast.

In the upper part of the Sacramento valley, protected by green hills and
carpeted by fragrant flowers, stands Anderson, the metropolis of Anderson
This small city of about fourteen hundred population is situated between
the forest-covered hills on the west and the calm flowing, limpid Sacramento
river on the east. To the north Mount Shasta rears her snow-crowned summit
and our thoughts Hy to the words of llyron, tisubstituting Mount Shasta for
Mount Blancj :
"XVe crowned her long ago,
Un a throne of rocks,
In a robe of clouds,
And a diadem of snow."
To the east the now famous volcano, Mount Lassen, catches the first
rays of the rising sun and bedecks herself with gorgeous colors. When the
volcanic ash is thrown into the air the rays of the sun make the clouds look
like the terrible Flames from some red hot furnace.
The surrounding hills look blue in the distance and as the eye comes
nearer to the city the hills change to a deep refreshing green. The cruel.
bounding, turbulent Sacramento river of the mountains becomes calm. quiet
and beautiful by the time it has reached Anderson. The splash of the red
salmon and the scream of the water birds are the only sounds one hears in
this peaceful place.
Stretching from the river on both sides and extending from the foothills
of the Coast Range to the uplands of the Sierras, with the little city in the
center, nestle the productive farms grown famous for the luscious fruits which
their owners ship all over the continent. The most productive fruits of the
foothill country are the blood-red strawberries and the peaches which seem to
have taken their color from the gold hidden in the soil where they grow.
Here also may be found the olive rivaling in size and color those of the
The favorite fruit of the river bottom is the juicy prune, and after
dipping and drying, 'carload after carload is shipped to the larger cities where
they are distributed in small amounts to the uttermost ends of the earth. The
sun-kissed apricot also forms one of Anderson Valleys most profitable crops.
They ripen in the early summer and are then packed in crates and shipped
north where they are prized more highly than the gold whose color they
resemble. In the early fall the grape forms the important crop and bunches
weighing four pounds are numerous.
Un the river bottom are also grown large quantities of al falfa. We often
see cows standing' knee deep in this rich feed and we later drink the foamy
milk and eat the yellow butter with delight because we know it is fresh,
clean and healthful. The horses, in most communities called "farm plugs,"
are not .farm plugs to us because they are sleek and shiny and hold their
heads high in the air even when pulling the plow which turns the dark,
moist soil ready for planting or the mower, as it ents sea after sea of golden
waving' grain. As our eyes wander over the level fields we may see wagons
piled high with fragrant hay, which is taken to large barns or put in monstrous
stacks ready for the baling machine. The giant oaks afford shelter for
numerous birds and when the summer sun becomes warm both man and beast
seek the shade of their overhanging' boughs.
Vegetables and small table fruits will be grown in unlimited quantities
on all of our soil when the water from the irrigation canal is turned on the
fertile soil. This canal will include both Anderson and Cottonwood and
As we draw nearer to Anderson our eye is caught by the church spires
which point toward the blue heavens. Some of the dwelling-houses stand
out in bold relief against the sky and others cuddle beneath the shelter of
over-hanging' boughs. Many of the roomy yards are carpeted with rich
lawns and some are done in mosaic work of violets and daisies. Rose-bushes,
honeysuckle, lilac bushes. and the pure-white, slender-stemmed Shasta Daisies
flaunt their many-colored blossoms in the passing' breeze. The fences of
former days still remain but with the growth of the little city and the untiring'
labor of the lmprovement Club, the unsightly fence is disappearing. The
hack yards are clean and wholesome due to the work of this same club. The
Anderson Union 'High School stands proudly before the people not because
of the building' but because of the men and women it is sending out into the
world. On the opposite side of the town and to the north is situated one of
the most beautiful grammar schools in the Sacramento Valley with its large
yard surrounded by carefully planted trees, and the American Hag floats
protectingly over the heads of our boys and girls.
The main line of the railroad runs through the business part of town.

The Womens Improvement Club of Cottonwood consists of about thirty
members who are united in an etliort to improve the civic and social conditions
of this vicinity. Shade tree planting, conserving the beautiful native oaks,
and tire protection are the main objective points, yet the members are glad to
aid any good cause. They have been able to accomplish some substantial
work, and hy hearty co-operation are hoping for steady improvement and a
liril-'lit future for this section of the country. The club was established in

ln March, 1912, the ladies of Anderson had reached the stage where
they could see the need of an improvement club to promote the welfare of
the town. A club was then organized under the name of the Anderson
VVomen's Improvement Club.
A great deal of work was accomplished during their first year. A grand
ball was given soon after their organization and the proceeds given to the
'Park Fund as a start in parking each side of the railroad track. ln October,
a tag day was given to raise funds to help build the wire fence around the
The second year proved a busy one. Under the supervision of the club,
the Herd Law was enforced, thus getting the stock olif the streets. The High
School was given financial help toward obtaining their commencement speaker.
.Every year an annual "clean-up" day is held by the club to help beautify the
.-Xs the third year was reached, street signs were made and unnamed
streets received names. A donation was given toward the erection of a town
drinking fountain. ln Qlune 1914 the High School commencement speaker, the
trustees and principal were entertained by a dinner given by the club.
During 1915-1916, which is their fourth year of activity, many important
things have been done. A llay Carnival was held in May 1915 under the
auspices of the club and was a complete Hnancial success. Two evenings in
December were devoted to a llazaar. At present a fly and mosquito campaign
is being carried on and tree planting along the sidewalk is being encouraged.
Tn February 1916, the club joined the California Federation of Womens
Clubs. At a recent meeting a very liberal donation was given to the High
School for their annual paper. "The Aurora." Tlie membership of the club
at the present time is seventy and new members are constantly being added
to the roll. The club has many plans for the future. 1.-X cannery project
is under consideration, the site for a club house is soon to be selected. and
plans for three entertainments have already been made for next winter.
The town feels greatly indebted to this club which is always doing good
and helping our town to be progressive. The X'Vomen's Improvement Club
is a staunch friend to the High School and has done much for its welfare.
The High School wish the club success in its fifth year of activity, which has
just started, and in all future years.

ln 1912 as Freshmen green
To School we bravely came
Our class of thirty-three in stepped
And soon knew all the game.
Vile learned of books and sports full well
llut some disliked the grind
So quit our ranks for distant folds
Thus leaving few behind.
lVith half our class in lands unknown
As Sophs we started ont,
lYe sent a delegate to rule,
.-Xnd put the league to rout.
The Hag of red and white was flung
Far out upon the wind,
The Freshmen tried to take it down
llut no! we didn't bend.
A-X5 -luniors, thirteen, we came back,
And changed the dear old rule,
Wie were a happy, lucky class
And loved the dear old school.
In basket ball we did our share,
In books we all excelled,
Some people thought We were the ones
That ought to be expelled.
Our Senior year is here at last.
Diplomas well in sight,
The thing for which the oil we burnt
Thro' many a weary night.
The cards and invitations loom
Across our vision gay,
The Senior pin of class sixteen
XYill gleam to light the way.
Our aim is won, but, dear old school,
Our hearts will grieve when gone,
You started us on the road of life,
Well love you 'till its done.
And when old age comes creeping on,
Our thoughts will turn to you
.Xnd bless the time and happiness

Thirty long and weary years have I spent in Alaska. I severed all
connections with my friends and schoolmates when I left. Many misfortunes
have befallen me since I left that dear old town in California. Oh, how those
years shine in my memory, as the brightest days of my life. I see the row of
happy-faced graduates move slowly upon the platform in the hall. How we
looked forward to the future, which all thought shone so brightly before us,
no one knowing where or what we would be now. Disappointed in love at
the age of twenty-one and with a teachers certificate, I journeyed to Alaska
to give my life to instructing the ignorant. Oh! that I might have those thirty
desolate years to live over! No newspaper ever passed before my eyes-
now I am nearing the home of my schooldays with 1ny pension papers which
Ql have striven for during those thirty years past.
At a station a dignified and elderly man enters the train-he has evidently
not seen the misfortunes of life. Wfhatl Have I seen him before? Another
glimpse, can it be he? il shall speak and ask him. It is! It is! I call him
The dignified man looks up to me and says. "Madame, I fear you have
made some mistake, l am Governor Davis of California."
Oh, my gray hair! not to be recognized by my school friend. He con-
tinues to stare at me. At last he comes over to me and asks my name. Evi-
dently some recollection disturbs him. I answer '!IVilma Nuttingf! I-Ie grasps
my hand and inquires where I had been so long. Wfe settle down into a seat
in the car for a chat.
t'You should see Redding," states Governor Davis. UIt is a very small
town. NVhat happened to it? Oh, you haven't heard? Anderson is now the
county seat of Shasta and has over one hundred and fifty thousand inhabitants.
'l'he .Xnderson-Cottonwood Irrigation Canal turned Anderson Valley from what
is was thirty years ago into the richest land of the United States. I spend a
month there every year when business is not too rushing," enthusiastically
explained Governor Davis.
"Isn't that une? llut what of the rest of the class ?" I anxiously inquire.
"t Jh. that is a puzzle. The class of 1916 surely has some famous members.
Look at lidwin Stone, in 1932 he was elected as state surveyor after having
served two terms as county surveyor here. lrIe astonished the nation with a
hook of sonnets and a national song. So he has become a poet as well as a
noted surveyor. lflis wife is one of the leading society women of Anderson
as well as of San lirancisco. They also spend about a month in Anderson
"His wife!" 1'
"Can't you guess? That senior romance never broke up, though they
were not married until 1923. Marjorie went to San Francisco Normal for
two years and then to U. C. where she took up dramatics and vocal lessons.
She spent about three or four years on the stage and spent one year in Europe.
where she sang before the President of Germany, England and lfrancc.
She made her first appearance in the Anderson Home Theater where her
singing was heard by a Spaniard, who advised her to take up training in
Spain. She took his advice and spent three weeks in Spain."
"I ani so glad for both Edwin and Marjorie, but what of lflelen? You
know I always envied her, her red curls. Did she 'settle down,' or did she re-
ceive her pension papers, or is she the dentist's wife ?" .
"You can never guess what she did. She got her certificate and after
teaching several years went to Chico Normal. There she spent two years.
lVe thought she was waiting for lllanchard to get his dentist's degree. but no,
the cruel-hearted girl deserted him on the night of his graduation and flew
into the arms of a rich old man of eighty to be his darling. In 1925. three
years later, he died, leaving her heiress to ten million dollars. Now with the
help of Mrs. Stone she has established a home for hoboes and Chinamen.
Blanchard remains true to her and it is thought by some that she will accept
him at some future time.
"And, oh yes, I suppose you would like to know what became of Gerald.
You and he were always such good friends-well he entered U. C. and later
went to Stanford. I-Ie wrote a book on the treatment of mosquitoes and
became so famous that he was sent as California Senator. That was not high
enough, he ran for President twice and was defeated both times, and now is
owner of a big prune and dairy ranch where he and 'Tiny' live."
"XrVell, do he and 'Tiny' get along well together?" 1 smilingly asked.
"Oh yes, once in a while. I went out to spend a day there last year
and they only had three quarrels-I left before noon. Iiflary and Otis were
there visiting them, having just returned from their honeymoon .which had
lasted three years. They had been to China, Japan, and had toured liurope.
Mary was a renowned dancer before she married Otis. Otis is also a very
important personage, having been Mayor of Anderson for ten years. when he
resigned, finding out that he and Mary really loved each other. They have
a beautiful residence in Anderson where they intend to reside. Otis was a
grammar school teacher for several years. Becoming tired of teaching he
went to U. C., from which he graduated in ten years with a high school cer-
tificate. He was principal of A. U. H. S. with fifteen assistant teachers for
two years, and was then elected Mayor," explained Governor Davis.
"W'ell, well, isn't that fine? lflut Otis and Mary, who ever thought of
them. I thought Otis and Laura Vtfalton would be married. They were
engaged when I left here. Wfhat happened?" I asked.
"Oh, Laura turned out to be a man-hater and is now a second Mrs.
llankhurst, striving to get Wfoman-suffrage for Germany."
"VVhy, I didn't know Laura could speak German. How did she learn ?"
"XWell." said Arthur, "she took a course in a girls' seminary under Pearl
Graham. You remember her? She was our 'Soph' class teacher."
"I guess I do. But I thought Laura was a teacher."
i'She did teach for two years but a rich uncle died and left her two
million dollars so she started out to get an education, after which she carried
on her life work. She no longer needed Otis. All she was going to marry
him for was so she wouldn't have to teach all her life."
"Uh, what happened to jack? She was always so dignified and stately
zmd so good in all her lessons."
Ulfrances? After attending university for some time she found that her
health was being broken hy hard and constant study, so she decided to go East
and spend several years. This she did and returned in perfect health and
linishcd her course in U. C. She practiced law in San Francisco for a few
years and then returned to Anderson for a vacation, where she began her
life work. She has been practicing law in Anderson for three years, and
has tried many important cases and is well known in U. S. courts. She is
still single-but l am on my way there now."
"Uh, what a beautiful town! XVhat town is this? W'hat a beautiful
building over there. XVhere are we F" l ask as I glance out the car window
at the l'ieauti'f11l town we are nearing.
"This is Anderson," Governor Davis says as he grabs my suitcase and
hurries for the door, "and that big building you see is the .-Xnderson High

jimmy McCan. the star reporter of a popular New 'York magazine, had
become what he longed to be, a war correspondent. At this particular minute
he was dismounting from his motorcycle with which he had been provided for
"Hang the thing, wonder what ails it now," muttered jimmy. He had
been having exceedingly bad luck. He had left the camp of the reserves that
morning for the Allies' firing line. The only knowledge he had of his iron
steed was how to turn on and 06 the gasoline.
jimmy circled around his steed but could see nothing wrong. 'He finally
lay down on his back with his head under the machine and began turning and
twisting every little thing he could find. After much language and time he
twisted the right thing. But jimmy didn't know his steed was ready to travel
until about a half an hour after he had fixed it. During this time he had sworn
he would not stop until he had murdered the man that had sent him such a
At length jimmy got started and in trying to break a few records somehow
ran his steed into a rock and was sent dying into a bank of clay. liut this
happened several miles nearer the firing line, so jimmy only cussed a few min-
utes and went on.
But in going on he took most of the clay bank with him. Soon the clay
began to harden and Jimmy became unbearably uncomfortable. His store of
expletives had run out and so he was denied the pleasure of relieving his feel-
ings in that manner. Jimmy was gritty and stuck to his machine, for the
simple reason he couldn't get off, until he reached the first line of entrenclunents.
There he was pulled off his affectionate steed, at the same time losing part of
his trousers. and was led before the officer in charge.
The officer, after he had looked over Jimmy's passports, regarded him
sternly and began to tell him what he could and couldnt do and where he
could and couldn't After Jimmy meekly promised to do what he was told,
he was turned loose. 'lfherc was hardly any danger then, for a truce of a few
hours had been declared and this line of entrenchments was some distance in
the rear of the firing line.
.limmy wandered around but was not satisfied. He managed to interview
the officer who had sentenced him to what he thought was worse than a prison.
'lfhe officer finally ag'reed to let -limmy go forward toward the firing line at
his own risk. After jimmy had left, the officer turned to one of his under ofn-
cers and smiled, for he recognized in .limmy an irrepressible Irishman.
"That kid will never stop until he is killed or has learned all there is to
learn," laughed the officer.
Meanwhile jimmy had arrived at the front. The truce was still on, so
Qlimmy wandered around without danger.
-lust as the truce was over and an artillery duel was beginning, Jimmy.
while making his way back to the nearest trench, stumbled over something.
Turning he found he had caught his foot on the edge of a board that had been
covered by mud. Not thinking anything about it, jimmy hurried on.
'lfhe Allies were massing their men not far from -limmy. They were going
to attack a hill not far off which the Germans held. Suddenly the signal was
given and thousands of brave men sprang from their trenches to die for their
country if necessary. On they went, now they were half way there. Suddenly
with an ear-splitting shriek several sixteen-inch shells burst near them. On
went the infantry undaunted. More shrieks and the huge shells hit nearer. A
second later and more shells burst in the middle of the charging infantry.
Again and again those terrible guns miles away dealt out their terrible death.
Of the thousands of men that had started only a few hundred returned.
"Gosh, glad I didn't with them." muttered Jimmy to himself.
A little later and the cavalry was being massed for an attack on the place
where the infantry had failed.
Again the signal was given and again thousands of brave men swept for-
ward. Again sixteen-inch shells began to shriek and roar as they burst nearer
and nearer the charging cavalry. Suddenly the shells began bursting in the
midst of the advancing horsemen. Above the roar of the shells could be heard

-Iimmy stared, 'fascinated fle could hardly believe his eyes and ears. lt couldn't
be, he told himself, and yet it was true. for it was happening before his eyes.
Tliousands of men were being killed in a wave of fire. In a few minutes the
cavalry was totally destroyed.
"lt's uncanny how those gunners miles away get the range so perfectly,
they must have a spy hidden," an officer exclaimed to jimmy.
"A spy," said jimmy to himself, "that's it." The thought of a man's mur-
dering his fellow men in such a cold-blooded way sent a wave of anger through
jimmy. Suddenly he thought of the board he had stumbled over.
After the last charge there had come a lull in the fighting.
"This is the time," -limmy said to himself, and made his way slowly to the
place where he had stumbled, ffiuding the board. he knelt down and heard a
very faint ticking sound.
"So thats it." muttered jimmy. He went north a short distance and, on
digging down a few inches, found a telegraph wire. lle quickly cut the wire
and to the end going towards the fierxnan lines fastened a long piece. With
this in his hand he hurried back to the trenches. XVhile attaching a sender and

agreed to ,linnny's plan, which was innnecliately carried out.
Taking up the sender, hlinnny began ticking his lllCSS3Q'C.
"Another charge, same range." Immediately a shriek was heard and a
shell burst where the cavalry had been destroyed.
"Over to west four," ticked Jiinmy. Soon another shell lmurst much nearer
the place where Jimmy had stumbled.
"Over west two," was the next message. There was a shriek, a roar, and,
when the smoke cleared, a great hole yawned there. Such was the fate of a

For eight successive nights the gods and goddesses had met at this beau-
tiful spot on the summit of Mt. Ida. They had argued and quarreled and argued
and quarreled, but could come to no agreement. On this, the ninth night.
Apollo, having tinished his daily task, found them again at strife over the same
"XVhat, nothing settled yet?" he exclaimed. "lX"lr. Chairman," addressing
jupiter, "I move you that we allow Minerva to decide for us, this all important
question. She is supposed to possess more brains than the rest ol us, and
therefore let us leave this to her excellent judgment."
"A good suggestion," said Jupiter, "do l hear a second?"
From somewhere came a voice, "I second the motion."
No doubt the voice was lN"linerva's own.
At this, the goddess of wisdom arose, tall and stately.
HI thought it was high time someone decided. l have a very good idea
which has not yet been touched upon. You all know the question, but l will
repeat it so that it will be fresh in the minds of all. Some nine days ago it
was decided that things were in a rather bad state of alliairs on the earth and
that we, the divinities, should do something. One thing we did decide upon,
and that was that the world should be presented with a gift from us: some-
thing which would do it more good than any other one thing. The question
now is, what shall that gift be? just what could help the world, make man
happy and overcome these unsatisfactory conditions? lrlere is my plan. lit is
an experiment which might have the required effect, and granting that it does
not, it can, on the other hand, do no harm. Why not sacrifice a part of our-
selves to the making of a wonderful creature? lly this l mean each one of us
give up a part of himself or his possessions and combine them to form this
creation of which I am speaking. Wie gods and goddesses are not perfect:
we have our faults, but there is not one among us who has not some good in
him. Now, my plan is to take from ourselves that which is good and with these
divine qualities form this creature. .lt remains to be seen what the result will
he, and as l say, it is merely an experiment. lrlowever, a combination of all
the divinities cannot but be perfect. W'hen this work of art of the gods is
complete, we will place that which is the result of our ellorts on earth among
men and see if we have labored in vain."
HA powerful plan," spoke jupiter. rising while heaven's artillery echoed
again and again.
"A beautiful idea," said Venus, moving with outstretched arms and lloating
draperies toward the majestic Minerva.
"A brilliant plan." cried Apollo, grasping his sisters hand.
"Oh, l see you are all impressed with the wisdom of my decision," inter-
rupted Klinerva, not waiting to hear from the others. "l'o-morrow evening we
will meet here once more and begin our work. lt is my opinion that we will
get no small enjoyment out of this work and 'l' am sure every one of us will
unsellishly submit his best gift." Wlith a quick glance toward the right ol
Qlupiter where sat Juno. sullen-eyed, Minerva vanished.
Un the next evening when the sun had been put to bed, the gods and god-
desses were again assembled around the throne of Jupiter, and Minerva was
again appointed spokesman.
No one was late but Apollo, who wandered dreamily in and took his place
at .lupiter's feet.
"Apollo is now in the land of poetry," said Jupiter in as hushed a voice as
he could command, for poetry is a sacred thing to the gods as well as to
"Come, Apollo, what are your thoughts ?" he asked as soon as the god of
poetry and music began to stir.
Apollo's lustrous eyes narrowed as in thought for only a moment, then he
WX form shall be made from the earth and air.
lfrom the sun's bright beams of radiant hue
WH: will spin a web of golden hair.
The eyes, from the stars and the heavens blue.
The pearls from old Neptune's Ocean,
The teeth so white shall be:
'.l'he pure soft clouds in the skyis commotion,
The skin so velvety."
lle hesitated and then continued in a more prosaic frame of mind.
"Now, having called upon the elements of heaven and earth, we will call
for personal gifts. .-Xs it is becoming late and time for Diana to awake the
moon and sail O11 her nightly voyage across the sky, I suggest that we call
upon her first."
Diana, with boyish grace, arose, and in a silvery voice began:
"l have not much to give: Venus is more beautiful than l: Minerva is
more wise: jupiter more powerful: Vesta more pure: Juno more1"
"liInough," thundered jupiter in his gruff but kindly voice. "You will in-
spire yonr virtue of modesty into this creation of ours. It is your best gift
and a virtue most admired by all. And, while lf am on my feet," he continued.
"I will give my gift. It is my best gift and l believe it is good. lt is called
power-power to rule and to influence mankind. ff this creature have power
and is a combination of all the gods, my gift will, l am sure, be used to good
advantage in benefiting the world."
"Your gift is good," said Nlinerva, "and it is worthy of you. Now will
,limo kindly present her gift?"
,luno arose, her eyes flashing and head held high. A shiver ran through
the assembly. Could it be possible that Qluno would spoil their gift by giving
a part of her own questionable disposition?
.lnno spoke: "l, queen of all gods and goddesses, have been called upon
thirdly. to present to this foolish creation of yours, my gift. li, who should
have been tirst. No, I decline to give up one single thing of mine to this crea-
ture: but, mark ye, if this idea of yours, Minerva, turns out as well as you
expect, and you decide to create others in the likeness of this half human, half
divine, l, hluno, will have a hand in the making. Furthermore, I will not
deign to listen to your silly quarrelsf' NVith a toss of her superb head, which
would strike any one other than a god quite dead, Juno walked away.
There were audible sighs of relief.
Evidently Juno was not aware of her faults or she would have sought to
mar the beauty of the wonderful gift.
Mars arose, his mighty muscles stretching.
"I have one gift to give," he said, "and .l willingly submit it. My gift
is strength." i
"Yours also is a good gift, Marsf, said Minerva, "no creature, mortal or
immortal, could accomplish without strength those things which we desire
this one to accomplish. Your gift is of no small value. Come, Apollo, you
seem impatient. 'W'hat is it you wish to give which will be a valuable aid
to the world, through our gift as a medium F"
IVith agility, Apollo sprang to his feet.
"No beingf' he said, "is complete without a love for music and poetry.
I give them both for the good of the cause. Also, from my shining' chariot,
the rays for a bright and sunny disposition."
"Uh XVoncler Creation, there is nothing you can not accomplish with

"I have nothing to give," said the god of the waters. 'fAlready I have
given my best treasures-the pearls from my palaces under the sea. I have
given thirty-two in number of my most perfect pearls-each one of which
is worth a pot of gold to a human being."
"And that is enough," interrupted Minerva. "You next, Venus."
The personilication of grace and beauty, Venus rose to her feet.
"A creation such as ours can do much with beauty alone. Love and
beauty go hand in hand and help greatly toward lessening the burdens of
life and brightening lives. I give beauty. My son Cupid found it necessary
to attend a wedding, the most beautiful which he has ever brought about.

the bride's bouquet should fall. I-Ie asked me to tell you of his promised
offering. He gives lovcg love for all mankind. lt is perhaps the best gift of
all, though given by one so young."
"Our creation would be most incomplete, Venus, without your aid and
that of your son." said Minerva. "Now, where is Vulcan?"
Pluto sprang to his feet. "Vulcan asked me to make excuses for him.
He was very busy and also said that anything which belongs to a rough and
lame blacksmith would hardly be suitable to present to such a divine
creature as was spoken of last evening. I also wish to be excused. I have
nothing to give. I will do no good, but on the other hand I promise to do
USO- long as you refrain from playing the part of the tempter, Pluto,"
said Minerva, "we will not complain. lfVe know your gift, Vesta. It is
purity. and no other gift could be as suitable and blend so nicely with the
other characteristics of our ideal. Now, I shall give my gift of wisdom and
I believe this creature divine will be complete. 'l'he only thing left for us
to decide upon is how she shall be called."
For nine long days they discussed the question, each one suggesting
a different name and each one determined to have his own way.
.lust as the gray dawn peeped over the edges of the horizon indicating
the begiiming' of the tenth day, jupiter arose and demanded silence while he
"'f'his gift was a suggestion of Minerva's. tive all agree as to its wis-
dom. l,et her settle this dispute as she settled the former one."
Minerva, the wisest of all the wise, arose, tall and stately.
"Froin the nrst moment we began work on our creation. l have known
what it would be called. Vtfhen you hear it you, also. will know that it
could not be named but one name and that is 'woman."'

tlaiety was everywhere in the brilliantly lighted dance hall. for in the
little mountain town society and pleasure slumbered during the week only
to burst 'forth on Saturday nights with a greater energy. XVhile youth
whirled across the floor in each other's arms, mothers and chaperons bustled
about in the banquet room arranging for the midnight lunch, now and then
stopping at the doorway to enjoy the almost irresistible music and the dizzy
.Xmidst the gay laughter and stolen whispers. the rapid hoofbeats upon
the rocky streets outside were not observed except by Hfanda Preston, the
only daughter of Colonel Preston, the most influential man in the sleepy
little town, and Captain Perry, who sat together near an open window.
."Xttracted by the unusual sound Wanda seized the opportunity to turn the
conversation into channels of a less personal natu1'e.
"lsn't it strange that someone would be coming' here at this time of
the night, and on horseback?" she asked, assuming' a tone of interest.
"Yes, rather," he answered patiently.
flut when a shrill bugle note echoed above the noisy room, Captain
f'erry leaped to his feet, all attention. X'Yanda clutched her lover's arm-
one thought reflected from his eyes, flashed across her mind and pierced
her heart like an arrow, for such a note connotates only one thing' in this
time of shattered dreams of world peace. And had not the governor only
the other day, issued a call for troops to quell the raids along' the Mexican
border, and was not Captain Perry a soldier?
ln the tense silence that followed the messenger was easily heard when
he shouted out briefly:
"Friends, l was sent here by the lieutenant of the militia of this county
to inform the men of this eonununity to report for duty to-morrow at 3 P. M.
lrlere is the letter for Captain Perry of Company D."
.Xs Captain l"erry dashed back with his letter of instruction in his
hand. unmindful of the blanched cheeks and lips of his sweetheart, his eyes
flashed with excitement and his heart was seized by the spirit of adven-
"Isn't it great! The letter says we probably will be ordered to the
border line," he read.
"lYhy, ldfanda, what is it?" he asked when he noticed her bowed head
and trembling lips. As she raised her tearless eyes to his for answer. the
letter fell from his now nerveless fingers and his face whitened--he under-
stood the meaning of war at last.
"Ah, Wfanda, I know now! Thank God for our women and what they
teach us." he said as he reverently drew her arm through his and led her to
the banquet room, which was fast filling as the spirit of dancing could not
Vlfhen the lunch was finished, Col. Preston. who had been in active
service in the war of 1898 and was a stanch patriot, delivered a speech that
quenched the wild romantic spirit of his young friends and instilled in the
hearts of everyone present a greater, truer sense of patriotism and duty
to one's country. After the cheers and sobs had somewhat subsided
Captain Perry was called upon to speak. Standing straight and resolute
before them and glancing first at the girl who sat beside him with downcast
eyes, he told them how he had not thought at first of the seriousness of the
call for troops, he had regarded a trip to Mexico as a lark, not thinking of
the battles they might have to fight. He told them that he had learned a
lesson through the pain of someone else, and how he hated warfare and
would rather give his life to peace, but when called upon he clearly saw his
dutyg for why shouldnlt he go as well as some other? lle cautioned them
not to waste too many tears because they were not yet sure as to whether
they would be sent to the Mexico of bandits and fighting guerrillas, perhaps
things were not as serious there as they now appeared.
At the doorstep of his home Col. Preston, uuemotional man as he was,
grasped the hand of Captain Perry and his voice shook as he said:
"Go on, my boy, as you have begun and Old Glory will be proud of
you,', and quickly disappeared into the house. lN7anda lingered yet a while
to whisper how proud she had been of him and how much she would miss
her soldier boy. I
The next morning, Sunday. the whole town awoke to repair to the
church. The old church steps creaked under the unaccustomed tread of so
many feet: never before had there convened in its pews so many people
with just one thought uppermost in their minds. Xdfith heads bowed low
they listened to the prayers of the venerable pastor for their boys who
must go to battle or what not. After the services, everyone congregated
under the trees nearby for a brief time, to say the last good-bys. :lifter
being presented by Col. Preston with a large silk American Hag and a huge
box of cigars to insure their good luck, as he expressed it, the precious
horde of soldiers marched away. Wfanda did not return home afterwards,
but leaving her father at their gate she stole quietly to her secret spot in
the woods that she might be alone with her thoughts, for she had not
learned the sad stern lessons of sacrifice that the Great lVar teaches to
thousands of its women every day.
Two lifeless, sultry days passed by and still nothing had been heard as
to whether Company D was ordered to the border line. On the second
evening as XVanda, thoughtful, loitered along' the familiar leafy path, which
hugged the mountain side, her unhearing ears, except for one sound, sensed
the tramp of horses' feet upon a mountain road-or was she dreaming?
Peering down anxiously through the leaves at the green banked road below,
she waited breathlessly for the sound to approach nearer. On spying a
streak of blue through the trees at the turn in the road, she turned and
sped down the path bursting into the study of her father, who sat in the
twilight smoking his cigar, with the cry:
"'l'hey are coming back! They are coming back!" and she threw her
arms about her astonished father's neck.
"lJaughter, calm yourself and tell me who is coming."
"Why, the boys are coming back, they didn't to Mexico-I saw
them coming around the bend."
"You are probably mistaken but let us go out and see."
Ifrect and silent the old soldier and his daughter stood at their gate as
the weary, dusty band came in view, headed by Captain Perry. Xtith a
salute they clattered up the street cheering hilariously. after being dis-
missed by their captain, who had dismounted at the gate.
"lYell, my boy, l suppose matters are not very serious in Mexico since
you have come back to us?" asked Col. Preston.
"Yes. it is serious, but all the companies reported so punetually that
they had all the troops they needed before they came to us. The boys
were so anxious to show what they could do that I did my best to get our
company enlisted but it was of no use." -
"1 lb, l ani so glad they didn't need you," said XYanda joyfully.
"So am l, dear-for your sake." and Captain Perry smiled upon the
happy face opposite him.
"lint the boys are all glad to be back. You should have seen how they
all brightened up on that hot, dusty road when they caught sight of the
familiar things near here," he added.
.Xs Wanda sat bathed in moonlight, on the step below Captain Perry,
later in the evening she said rather wistfully:
"What has happened to you? You are so changed and thoughtful.
You don't seem a bit glad to be back."
".'xh, X-Vanda, no one is happier to be back than I-for isn't peace and
love better than war and hate? :Xnd yet l can't help thinking-," and his
voice trailed off into silence.
"XX'hat ?" she asked.
"Uh, of the company that was sent in our place. of the man who
had tn go in my place, probably he has someone already vainly waiting for
his return." he finished.
"I lb, hush dear, l've thought of those things for myself, for how did l
know when you went away that l should ever see you again ?"
"l understand, dear. Uh, il' we might have a peace so that no one
would have to die in others' places," he said as she laid her hand in his
eager outstretched one. -

The sun had set an hour before, and a faint golden light streamed
across the sky in the far west. Now a heavy black cloud gathered over-
head and a dense mist fast descended from the eastern mountain side. For
once everything enwrapped itself in silent stillness-not even a clap of
thunder rattled forth, as would be expected on such a night. I took one
last long look into the pitch-dark, then rose from my seat on the door-step,
half frightened, slipped inside and quickly bolted the one door of our two-
room log cabin. 'XVhy shouldn't I be afraid? Here were two silly girls in
the wilds of the Sierra mountains and almost at the base of the only active
volcano in America. As usual, Fan had gone to bed.
"VVhy did she persist in going to bed so early?" I asked myself.
She had nothing to do but to keep the two rooms through the day.
while I had to walk three miles daily to teach grammar school to six chil-
dren who seemed unbearably stupid.
Vtfhilst I sat quietly thinking, a terrible noise suddenly wailed up from
somewhere without, in the mysterious dark. I sat still and stared-
straight ahead-straight into space-for in those few moments there was
nothing else before me.
Finally, I gasped "Fanl Did you hear that? Oh, Fan!"
"Hear what ?" was the rejoinder.
Another wail trilled up as an answer and again I sat perfectly tense.
"VVhy, France l" exclaimed Fan. "Supposed you'd know a panther when
you heard it."
Life had almost swept from me but joy now filled the vacancy. During
those few horrid moments I had pictured myself hurled from a nearby cliff
down into the wild, rushing Bailey creek, six hundred feet below. by a wild
maniac. 'llhe animal shrieked on.
A feeling of utter loneliness crept over me. I thought of the warm
April evening at home, of the sweet-scented prune and peach blossoms in
our Anderson valley, and of all my friends. I never realized the danger of
the summer's jaunt before. I almost wept when "whack"-something had
fallen on the house and something continued to fall. Fan was up in an
instant. A storm of rocks was pouring down at tremendous speed.
"'.l'hat dreaded Blount Lassen." she cried and clasped me to her.
She quietly thrust me from her, rushed to the bed and quickly dressed
while I stood shuddering before the fireplace.
I do not know how I ever reached the Hoor but when a little later I
looked up from my lowly bed. I was being commanded by Fan.
"Get up at once! The rocks have stopped falling and we must go right
now. 'llhe sulphuric gas is getting stronger all the time and if we remain
our breath will be stifiedfi
l rose, slipped my coat on, and quickly buckled my wrist watch fmy
last present from .-Xunt Mariel on just above my trembling hand.
Fan grasped my arm as we walked silently and calmly out into the
midnight darkness, My first resolve was to look straight ahead and never
to the side or back. A continual roaring soared high in the air from the
boiling basin and floated down to our ears, but we walked on with light
quick steps for what seemed a very long distance.
I was thrown from my feet and my hand sunk in hot mud a foot deep
while Fan Went coasting ahead of me. I regained my feet and started to run
but found if I would stand still I would not fall for the mud was continually
growing deeper. I was Wearing high boots so the mud did not burn me
and I was soon floating gracefully down the plain mountain side. I lost all
trace of Fan. She was so far in front of me. NVhat a pleasing sensation it
was! I didn't cry and yet at any moment I might be buried alive.
"The buoyant force of this mud must certainly be very great," I thought
Again I thought of home and physics class in the Anderson I-Iigh
School. just then I was driven around a bend into a boulder. I felt the
touch of a hand. It was Fan perched on a high rock, She grabbed me by
my coat as I scrambled up to sit beside her.
'fOh Fan." I cried, clinging to her, "you,re saved and so am If' at which
we both fell from the rock down, down into space.
I opened my eyes and looked at Fan.
"Of course, we are saved," she was saying in a very disgusted man-
ner, "and always have been I suppose."
Unthinkingly, I reached my hand under my pillow for my watch and
pulled it out.
"Good gracious." I exclaimed, "it's nearly nine o'clock and there's the
sun beaming in through the window."

ln the wilds of the Siskiyou Mountains, surrounded by immense cliffs on

One evening a newly wedded couple came down to the lake to fish by

lflere remorse filled his soul and he spent days and nights in mortal agony.
Sometimes he would succumb to grief and lie upon the door of the cave
moaning and groaning. pleading, praying to the gods to give back his bride
if 'for only an hour.
'livery night he would sit at the entrance of his cave and exactly at
midnight the spirit of his wife would call from somewhere beneath the surface
of the lake. Then she would rise out of the water clothed in spotless white
and turning her white face toward him. she would stretch out both arms and
beckon, steadily beckon and then begin to sink lower, lower as if some un-
known force were pulling her down. Next an expression of mute appeal
would come over her face and emitting a long, wailing moan she would dis-
appear from his sight.
As expressionless as stone he would gaze fixedly at the spot where she
disappeared. After several hours he would rise slowly and feebly and tearing
his eyes away from the spot with a gigantic effort he would totter painfully
back into his cave to spend the remainder of the night in remorseless agony.
On the ninth night after the murder of his bride the Indian seemed
strangely susceptible to the appeal from the spirit, and he was muttering
brokenly as if on the verge of insanity. He was prepared to answer her call

Hunting Grounds of the indians.

"Say, boys, did I ever tell you of the time when 1 sent the miners up
the shaft just before that terrible explosion? I'll tell you what, every last
one of you would have been scared, but I wasn't one bit. And talk about
keeping a train from being wrecked, you should have been with me when
the big bridge went down that crossed Swallow Creek. .l stood right in
the center of the track and waved my old bandana handkerchief. Scared,
you say? Wfhy, I dou't know what the word means."
The speaker was an old man, possibly the oldest at the mine, and he
was always telling of his great feats of strength and daring, but no one at
the mine had ever known him to do any of the many things that made up
The morning following this conversation the miners at the "Old Ridge"
mine continued driving the new shaft and a large derrick was suspended
above the gaping hole. A number of miners were down in the shaft setting
a blast and Qld Ben was standing on the edge looking down. Soon the
pulley began to creak and the men came quickly up. just as they landed,
Old Ben looked across the shaft and there stood Ezekiel, a little lltalian boy
with a lunch bucket in his hand. Old Ben shouted, "Stand back," but just
as the words left his mouth there was a deafening explosion and a piece of
the bank on which Ezekiel stood crashed down into the deep shaft. Ezekiel
screamed and clutched at the crumbling side of the bank.
NYomen screamed and men stood breathless, but Old lflen soon saw
that the boy could not hold on very long. flrle grabbed the rope dangling
from the derrick, gave himself a shove with his foot, and he was soon
swinging over the screaming, struggling boy. Old llen held the rope with
one hand and, reaching down, picked Ezekiel up by the suspenders with
The rope swung back, a groan escaped from the silent mass as it failed
to reach the bank. Ben's mind worked rapidly and he gave the signal to be
lowered into the shaft. The dangling man and boy started down, but came
to an abrupt stop as the rope jumped the pulley. They still swayed be-
tween the pit and the blue heavens.
Old Ben's hand slipped, but he recovered his grasp when only about
three inches of the rope remained. The blood 1'an down his arm as the
rope cut deeper and deeper into the flesh of his hand. XN'hen Qld Ben
slipped, Ezekiel grabbed Ben's leg. 'Ben carefully let go his hold on the
boy's Suspenders and grabbed the rope with both hands.
Meanwhile, the miners were throwing brush into the pit, and llen knew
why. They were expecting him to fall.
At last Benls roving eyes lighted with triumph and he screamed,
"Swing us over to the old shaft." This order was obeyed. The old shaft
was partly full of water and llen knew it would be better to drop into the
muddy water of the old shaft than down upon the cold hard rocks in the
Ben said: "Ezekiel, drop."
The boy clung' closer, and Ben continued: "XVell, lad, if you don't drop
we go together. Are you ready? Here we go."
',l.ll1Cl'C was a scream, a splash and then deathly silence.
The derrick was soon put into play and lowered carefully to the bot-
tom of the shaft. Soon a wet, bedraggled man and a frightened boy were
safe at the top.
There was one queer thing about this experience of Old Ben's. He was
never known to brag' about it.

A cluster of red curls hung suspended in air.

A star came out and hung in the blackness-a single candle in the black
pall. The moon climbed above the mountain tops and iioated with veiled
eyes through the low hanging smoke that hung a shroud above the destruction
and devastation below. In the half light, the trees grew into shape, maimed
and broken sentinels. The houses, like theis inhabitants, had fallen before
the invaders and lay like old tombs, fallen to ruin. lVreckage and the
bodies of the dead filled the streets.
Through the ruins of the once peaceful village, an old priest came with
tottering steps and, stooping to view the faces of the dead, groaned and
The sudden sound of wild laughter startled him from his task and half
believing, half daring to hope, l1e called "Cecile," and hurried toward the
In the corner of a cottage from which the roof and one corner had
been blown away a young girl sat in the ruins and ashes, her face, from
which the wild eyes stared in unseeing vacancy, drawn and hard in the
moonlight. And incessantly she caught up haudfuls of ashes, laughing
wildly as she shaped them into tiny mounds.
A sob from the old priest at the door reached her and she hurried to
him and, touching his arm in quick pity, asked:
"Did they leave you, too, lfather, or did you too stay behind to signal
the Ilelgians? I was so afraid, Father. VVhere were you? I tired from the
window, Father, and a man fell, spinning round and round. The blood! lt
will not come off my hands even in the ashes. See."
Wlith greatest compassion the old priest took her hands and said:
"The good God will take the blood away and give thee peace, child."
"No! No! there is no God. l-le passed by with the German soldiers
and laughed at our pain. There is no God," and she laughed wildly.

Old Age, the wise old king of Earth, was blessed with a son whom
he named Youth. Qld Age was very proud of his son and as he grew to
be a fair-complexioned boy, who looked upon everything cheerfully and
enthusiastically, many of the duties of his father were bestowed upon him.
and finally he became so well liked that he became Prince of liarth and
took the throne from his father.
Old Age was very much hurt about this because he thought Youth was
trying to crowd him out of his rightful throne: but still he was proud of
his son for what he had attained, so he did not wish to overcome him by
force to regain his throne but he sent out his most trusted knight, Time,
to conquer his son by other means and bring him back.
Wlieri Youth found out that Time was dispatched to regain his fathers
throne he laughed, and made no preparations which would aid him against
the knight, but he prepared for his journey over Earth.
lile started out with his subjects to have a good time as he went in
his care-free way and thinking nothing about Time, who with his small
Company was coming in pursuit.
Thus they traveled until one day Youth noticed that his subjects were
gradually decreasing and falling back among Qld Ages knightsg but it was
too late for Youth to prepare now, so he just fled before Time, his hair
turning gray as he lost his knights one by one. He grew tired and weary
as he resumed his journey day by day,
liut hard as he tried, he could not gain on Time, although he traveled
fast, and his tired comrades dwindled down until there were none left.
Then it was that Youth saw his mistake. Sitting down by the road
he lamented on the days he had wasted and considered where he might
have been if he had prepared against Time in his younger days.
lt was here that Time overtook him, an old gray-haired man, deserted
by his knights. Youth had no aid by which he could defend himself against
Time, so he gave in meekly and returned with him. Thus the throne was
again restored to Old Age.

By FRANCES JESSEN, '16,
VVe would call our readers' attention to the many new items and cuts
that have been added this year. ln general we have endeavored to portray
school life in work and athletics, and something of the community spirit.
Qwing to a deficiency in our treasury, occasioned by last year's annual,
it was thought that a paper could not be published this year. Nevertheless,
the staff wasechosen and we began to make plans and get the material
together. W'hen it became fully apparent that our financial status would
only allow for either the AURoR.x or a baseball team, but not both, we decided
on the fXURORA. But Mr. Kellogg, through his interest in the baseball team,
sacrificed a great deal of his time in securing advertisements for us, thereby
making the two activities possible. XVe hope our readers and subscribers
will realize the generosity of the advertisers and show their appreciation by
patronizing them, for without their aid this annual could not have been
issued so successfully as it has been.
XVe were further encouraged by the generous donations of the XVomen's
Improvement Clubs of Anderson and Cottonwood. The Anderson Improve-
ment Club has been a friend indeed all through the life of our school.
VVe also appreciate the donation of the Cottonwood Improvement Club so
much the more when we realize the interest the outside communities are taking
in our school activities.
Although we have many others to thank for making this edition of
the AURORA a success, we must not forget Miss Bammann, who has acted
as adviser and has done much in arranging the material.
That the students might be persuaded to take a greater interest in
preparing IXURORA material, the staff decided to open a contest with a gold
medal as the prize for the best story. Miss Ilammann also offered a book
of poems for the best poem.
Vlfe thank the judges, Miss Harris from Redding High School, Miss
Eddy and Miss Bammann for their part of the work. They Hnally awarded
the prize for the best story to Roycroft Anderson and gave honorable mention
to Callie Barney and Frances lessen. The prize for the best poem was
awarded to Frances Jessen and honorable mention given to Callie llarney and
Great credit is due to Miss Ruby Dewlaney for the numerous sketches
which she has contributed.
In spite of being handicapped by the inadequacy of our high school
building' for such a large enrollment as one hundred and two, the school has
grown and improved in many ways, through the inexhaustible spirit of our
principal, Mr. Gaines.
A new laboratory was built beside the main building and the physics class
has been able to perform many practical experiments with the equipment pro-
vided, which is as complete as that of larger schools.
Our library has also increased through the efforts of our teachers and
by the donation of Hfty volumes by Mr. M. Buffum. A catalogue ot all
books has been begun this year, and there are now 1300 volumes, far too
few for the necessary work, when we consider the fact that we have no
public library here.
Shop work has been added to the list of subjects, and the boys had
much practical work this year. Next year chemistry will be added and
perhaps other courses.
Neither has school and community spirit been lacking, as was shown
by the support given us at the basketball and baseball games and other
high school entertainments.
The school also thanks Mr. Simpson for the able manner in which he
managed the hnances of the school. Great credit is also due to the students.
especially to those of Nr. Simpsons commercial department, who sold tickets.
thereby replenishing the treasury besides carrying every school activity to a
Although we have not seen our trustees this year as much as we
should have liked, we feel that they have not entirely neglected us. At a
recent meeting they decided to submit to the taxpayers the question whether
the district should be bonded that we might have a new, modern high
school building. lily the time this edition of the AURORA will have been
published we will know whether our dream is a reality or not.

public this year
The first appearance of the high school before the
in the form of a vaudeville entertainment given on December 16. 1915.
This was the first entertainment of this kind ever given and was thoroughly
The 'i1Q1'lU'0'lQS Outfitl' afforded a ffreat deal of amusement. The scene
showed the nine children of the Ruggles family fitted out in the best they
could afford and receiving instruction from their mother as to their behavior
at the forth-coming dinner party. The part of Mrs. Ruggles was well taken
and she proved a very strict mother. Larry, the youngest son, was quite a
sensation in his red kilts and yellow sash.
In "The Man Next Door" a half-hour comedy, Constance comes to the
city to meet her fiance, Philip Melville, going to her aunt's apartment. She
has lost the address of her aunt's apartment after she arrives there and
telephones to Philip that she will meet him at his apartment. She leaves
the apartment three times, each time giving the cab driver l'hilip's address
but is always brought back to the same place. She gets disgusted at her
luck and goes to the Nan Next Door for help and finds that l"hilip is in
the next apartment. lack Wfistar had been the instigator of the joke.
Mary, the scrubwoman, kept the play very lively by her humor.

The Seniors scored the greatest triumph in years when they presented
"The Cabinet Minister" on May Sth. Never had a play of such high
quality been attempted in this communityg and further be it said, never had
any play been interpreted with as much dramatic sympathy and power. The
humor in the play is unobtrusive yet appealing: it amuses but does not con-
vulseg it always provokes laughter and never offends.
"'l.'he Cabinet Ministeru is a comedy of characters and as such demands
a most careful character portrayal. The Seniors and all other members of
the cast are certainly to be complimented on the consistency with which the
various parts were handled throughout the entire performance. Miss Bain-
mann, the coach, can justly he proud of the hnished product, and every
one concerned joins in acknowledging the inspiration of her faithfulness,
patience and enthusiasm.
Adolph Shields, in the title role, was the cool, dignified Member of
Parliament, and he carried his part well. lflorriiied was he at the Hnancial
vagaries of his country-bred spouse, Lady Twombley. This was none other
than Marjorie Shanahan. lflers was a very emotional part which demanded
a high nervous tension throughout. Miss Shanahan was a remarkable success
and pleased everyone by her womanly grace and undeniable genius.
Arthur Davis as lirooke, their son, strolled about as the typical English
dude, and, to quote his own expression, was 'lawf'ly satisfact'ry-what!"
Mary Wilder as l1is sister, Imogen, brightened the play with her youthful
vivacity and bubbling spontaneity. XVith merry smiles and Heeting tears, she
made a charming ingenue.
Theresa Smith portrayed the Dowager who always had 'ha motive."
Especially to he commended were the clear quality of her tones and her
perfunctory way of settling "family difficulties."
Lady liuphemia Vibart, the supercilious, gushing young society woman,
was excellent in the person of Callie Barney, always a favorite.
Veva Wfilder and Roy Anderson, as the young count and countess who
disagreed about the education of their child, furnished fun for all. The
countess was a charming young matron, the count an agreeable host.
Lady lxll-Z'l.C1DllElll C'Laura Vlfaltonl fairly savored of heather and all
things Scotch, and her bashful son Clidwin Stonej created mirth at every
appearance. He was so "attached to his mother."
Gerald liyre as Valentine Vlfhite, the lover who hated conventions.
made a pleasing contrast in an environment saturated with white collars,
trains and ceremony.
The scheming dressmalcer, Mrs. Gaylustre, who insidiously slid her way
into the social circle of the select, was cleverly interpreted by Frances -lessen.
Was there ever a more ambitious adventuress than "that woman!"
Iler brother joseph COtis Carlsoni. the unscrupulous money-lender,
provoked more laughter than anyone, with his gyrations in highland costume
and his efforts to be "chatty" with the snobbish aristocrats.
John Lamiinan was a most obsequious butler, and Gladys McMurry,
the maid Angele, lisped her French to the queens taste.
Mr. Melton QLester Knappj, the Cabinet Minister's private secretary.
Miss Munkittriclc QGraee jessenyl, the young lady who was so "upset," and
Mr. Munkittrick flames ljlaclcj, her indignant father, all acted their parts
to the satisfaction of the most critical.
The stage was unusually attractive with its ferns, rugs and cozy Hre-
place. The audience was sympathetic and appreciative.

Ilaskel ,llall season was looked forward to with much enthusiasm this
year, as four of the old players remained and there seemed to be a good
chance to get out a winning team.
lflowever, we were somewhat disappointed when practice began.
The old players seemed to have lost their "pep," and it was only through
the constant efforts of our coach, Mr. Simpson, that they were brought
back into their old form.
The absence ol' "Und" 'llencratt greatly weakened the team. but
Shanahan and Awbrey filled his place admirably, Shanahan playing in two
league games and Awbrey in one.
Alter our first practice game the team was dehnitely chosen by the
coach. lllack was elected captain and Stone manager. The real work
now began. The second team, which was exceptionally fast, served
as an excellent opponent for the first team so that they were in good
trim by November fith, on which date the tirst league game was scheduled.
Anderson 18-Redding 17.
The lirst league game was played November 6th with Shasta Union
High School, at Redding. We expected an easy victory, as we had
already defeated Redding' in a practice game on our own iloorg but the
team was somewhat over-confident, and it was only after a hard ight that
we succeeded in running' the score up to 18 to their 17, thus defeating'
them by only one point. The line-up for this game was-

The second league game was played November 20th in Red Bluff
against the fastest team in the league. Our team seemed lost in the
first hall, and Red lllull ran the score up to 30 while we only made 5.
The second hall' was much faster on our part, as we made 16 points to
their l7, but it was too late then, for the game ended in a victory for
Red lllulil' with a score of 47 to 21. X1'e had the same line-up in this
game as in the Redding' game.
Anderson 16-Corning 18.
The third league game was played on our home lioor with Corning
on December 4th. The line-up was the same with the exception of Awbrey,
who played guard, and Davis, forward. This was the deciding game of
the season. If Corning won, they would have the championship of this sub-
league, and if not, it would result in a tie between Red Bluff, Corning and
Anderson. VVith this in mind, the team went into the game prepared
to put up a hard fight. It was the fastest game of the season, as both
teams were fighting hard. At the end of the first half the score stood
6 to 6. 'ln the beginning of the second half our team ran up several scores
and remained ahead until the last few minutes of the game when Corning
The score remained a tie for several minutes when the referee blew
his whistle for play to stop. 'lloth teams stopped play with the exception
of one Corning player who then shot a goal. The referee awarded these
two points to Corning. against the protests of the umpire and captain,
which gave them 18 to our 16, thus winning the game for them.
The A. U. l-I. S. was forced to take very distasteful measures against
Corning' over the awarding' of those last two points. It was the first
time in its career that a protest has ever been entered against another
school. Although we dislike it very much, still we felt that it was
our duty in order that more competent officials would be chosen in
the future. l-lowever, the committee did not think we had sufficient
grounds for protest and the score was left as it stood.
After this loss the coach and manager tried to schedule several more
practice games in order to raise some money, but the team went to
pieces alter losing its last chance for the championship.
Although we did not do as much in basketball this season as we
expected, the prospects look very bright for next year. Three of the
old players leave, but their places can easily be filled from the second
team, and the chances are good for a much faster team to represent
A. U. H. S. in the coming year.

The season ol' 1915 was a memorable season for the Girls' Basket Ball
team of the A. U. Il. S., as it is the first in which this school has had
the championship of the sub league. The line-up of the team is-

enough for two teams. so we were assured of enough girls for practice.
Each one of the girls was very anxious for a place on the team and the
rivalry was great: as a result. there was good, earnest practice.
There were two practice games played before the league games.
'llhe first was with Redding and the other with Red lllutf. These were
good practice for the team because they helped the players learn the plays
and strength of the other teams before the league games.
Redding 15-Anderson 8.
The first league game was played in Redding with Shasta 'Union
lfligh School November 6, 1915. The Anderson team was placed at a
disadvantage because of the slippery floor, so the game ended with
a score of 15 to 8 in favor of Redding. This defeat, however, did not
discourage the team, but they practiced harder than ever.
Anderson 14-Red Bluff 12.
'.I'he game played at Red llluff November 20th was a hard game,
as the Anderson team had but one more chance and it was determined
to win. Owing to their previous hard practice, the result was victory
Anderson 13-Corning 12.
Anderson played Corning next at .eXnderson, December 4th, and
succeeded in winning only after a struggle. The score was tied many
times during the game and was a tie at the close of the second half.
Corning made a free throw which counted only one point, but Anderson
made the first two successive points which gave them the game. This
defeat put Corning out of the race, but it tied the score in the league
games between Redding, Red Bluff and Anderson, each of the three
teams having won two league games.
llut the tie was not to be played off until after the holidays. There
was no practicing during the Christmas vacation. but the team worked
doubly hard when training started again.
Anderson 14-Redding 8.
'l'he first game to play off the tie was scheduled to be played in
Anderson between Shasta Union lfligh School and A. U. H. S. This was
not such a close game as some, but nevertheless it did not lack excitement.
The score was 14-8 in favor of .-Xndersou. This put Redding out of the
Anderson 15-Red Bluff 13.
'I'his left but one game between this team and championship of Sub-
League 3. 'llhere was but one week for practice, but the team took ad-
vantage of that week and did some good hard practicing for team work.
'llhey were amply rewarded by the victory of the Red lilutdf-Anderson game
played at Anderson -Ian. 22. 'llhe score was very close all through the game,
but .Xnderson always kept the lead by a few points. Every time Red Bluff
made a point Anderson made one also. 'l'he rooters were hoarse and there
was great excitement. -lust before the whistle blew the Red Bluff forward
made a long throw for the goal and tied the score. The tie was played off,
with .Xnderson winning the hrst two points. This gave Anderson the trip
to Oroville to play off the championship of N. C. H. A. L.
Oroville 35-Anderson 11.
The Anderson team left Anderson at 9 o'clock in the morning and
reached Uroville about half-past four. The team was ve1'y tired and was
not in very good spirits, but they put up as good a game as any of the
teams of Northern California have done under the same circumstances. The
score was 35-ll in favor of Oroville. The Oroville g'irls proved to be
good winners and treated the Anderson team royally after the game, which
lessened the sting of the defeat.
As a reward for winning the championship, each girl on the team 1'c-
ceived a blue jersey decorated with a block The substitutes each
received plain blue jerseys. These were donated by the business men of
It was mostly due to the ever faithful coach Miss lfddy that Anderson
received plain blue jerseys. These were donated by the business men of
This year's success and the awarding of the jerseys have caused much
basketball spirit, and even better success is anticipated for next year.

The baseball squad started work last fall, and practiced inte1'1nittently
until the rainy season began, thus getting a pretty good f'line" on the players.
Owing to the good weather they were able to begin training again early
in the spring. The first step taken was the choosing of Shields as manager
and Stone as captain. Much more interest was taken in baseball than
usual, and everything considered there was an excellent turn-out. The first
thing our coach. Mr. Kellogg, did was to have the grounds leveled and bat-
ting cages c1'ected. Meetings were held at the noon hour, when the knotty
problems were discussed. lt was through these persistent efforts of Mr.
Kellogg that a great deal of scientific baseball was putt into practice. 'llc
spent much of his time and did everything he could to strengthen the team.
Practice was held nearly every evening, and at the end of the season a great
improvement could be seen in the team, especially in their batting and

tmm W OI Practice Game: Red Bluff 7-Anderson 8.
Only one practice game could be scheduled, which was played with
Red Bluff High at Red Blult. It was a good game throughout, ending in
a victory for us, the score being 7-8. after eleven innings of interesting
play. Several changes weremade after this game, and we had a pretty good
idea as to what the line-up would be for the first league game, which was
scheduled for April lst. l-lowever, the team was not chosen until the day
before the game. The line-up was as follows:

Red Bluff 5-Anderson 4.
This game was played in Red Bluff. It was a very good game until
the ninth inning. life were ahead, the score being ll-l. But in the last
inning we made two errors which resulted in the loss of the game, Red lllluii'
scoring four runs.
Anderson 17-Redding 1.
This game was played on our home diamond April Sth, and was the
fastest game we played during the season. The team played extremely
"tight" ball throughout, and only one error was made. Redding was sup-
posed to have the fastest team in the league, as they defeated Red liluiif by
a score of 18-2: however, we shut them out until the ninth inning. when
they slipped in one run on us. This game tied the three schools in this
sub-league for the championship, so that the series had to be played over
Red Bluff 9-Anderson 7.
In the second series Red Bluff defeated Redding in Red llluff, and they
were then scheduled to play us on our home diamond. ll' they won this
game they would receive the championship of this sub-league. 'lfhe day
before the game three of the team were sick, Shields being so ill that he was
unable to play at all. This was a close game throughout. Red Bluff made
most of their runs in the first of the game. Then we began to "tighten up"
and to steadily overtake them. Oliphant pitched the first 'four ninnings, and
although they hit him pretty hard he was not supported as he should have
been. Reynolds was put into the box the lifth inning, when the team set-
tled down and played good baseball. Wfe steadily crept up, but it was too
late and at the end of the ninth inning the score remained 7-'J in our
.-Xfter this game the baseball season ended, and the team directed its
interests toward other school activities.
Baseball was a great success this year and achieved all its purposes,
even though the team did not secure the coveted championship of the sub-
league. Giving to the lack of competition in so small a school it is usually
very hard to get out a first-class team, but Mr. Kellogg created a spirit
which accomplished just as much. The improvement which was witnessed
during the season was remarkable. The team was playing in excellent form
at the end of the season, but unquestionably luck was against us in the
A post-season game has been arranged with the team from Chico lligh
School, but "the end is not yet," and of this the chronicler will write next
year. The last regular baseball meeting has already been held in order to
arrange matters for next year. Rose was elected captain. and Shields man-
ager. Mr. Kellogg extended an invitation to the team to meet on the hrst
open date for a "camp supper." 'llhis will be the last gathering of the squad
for the purpose of talking over the season's work, and it will undoubtedly
disperse much wiser and ready to take up baseball again next year in its

ln previous years considerable interest has been manifested in debating,
but at the beginning of this year our school for the tirst time entered the
Ulnterscholastic l'ublic Speaking' League of California," under the super-
vision of the t'niversity of California. The tfniversity submits a list of
questions. to be considered in debates for the ensuing' term, to the different
schools in Xpril. This enables the debating teams to study the questions
beforehand. .Xt the liegitniing of the term the question for the first debate
is decided, lfnfortunately we did not enter until September and thereby
missed the opportunity of considering' the questions beforehand. A prelim-
inary debate was given before the Student llody to select the regular team.
Those taking part in this were Gerald liyre, Laura Walton, Fred Oliphant,
Pauline llotchlcin, Myrtle Phelps and Eugene lrlotchkin. The teams selected
were l'iug'ene l lotchlcin. llauline lflotchliin, 'Nlyrtle Phelps and Laura XYalton.
tlur first debate was scheduled for November 12th, with Orland at
Orland, and Colusa at .lXnderson. The question considered was, "Resolved,
that the l'nited States Constitution should be amended to provide for
Woman Sull'rag'e." The home teams upheld the alhrmative and the visiting'
team the negative at both places. Pauline and Eugene llotchkin prepared
to defend the negative at Orland, and Myrtle Phelps and Laura Xvaltou the
afftrinative at home, under the supervision of llr. Kellogg. The debate was
given in the llome Theater and was well attended by the town people. The
judges were Kev. liarl Nicholls of Anderson, Miss lrlarris of the Redding
lligh School, and Rev. DI. E. llurlchart of Redding. The audience was con-
vinced that the Constitution should be amended to extend the franchise to
women, and the decisions cast by the judges were two to one infavor of
the affirmative. llowever, we were not so fortunate at Orland, the decision
being three to nothing' in favor of Orland.
Hur next debate was scheduled for .Ianuary oth, at tlridley. The ques-
tion Sllllllllittftl was, "Resolved, that California should adopt a Commission
form of Government." Due to inadequate facilities we could not prepare
in time to make a creditable showing' and so forfeited the debate.
Next term we intend to take part in all the debates. which will he
nearer home. .X re-arrangement of schools placed Redding, .eXnderson. Red
lllulif, and Corning' in this sub-league. .N list of questions to be considered
next year has already been received from the Liniversity, and they are being
discussed in class debates.

schools in the State who have agricultural elubs. Our organization was
eliiected March 6th, 1916, after a visit from Mr. R. hl. Hagen, the State
leader of clubs for this part of the State. Mr. Lainiman, our county horti-
cultural commissioner. promised toaet as our adviser. A number of the
boys were enthusiastically in favor of the idea and at once made arrange-
ments to qualify.

difficulty was experienced in securing' suitable land for each member, but

kindly criticism of our paper, olifered us through their annuals. llie hope

COTTONWODD FLOUR MILLS
"SHASTA'S BEST" FLOUR
Five years ago Brown H Sons came to Cottonwood,
leased the mill property owned by the Cottonwood Milling
Co., a corporation. The mill building was Finished but the
machinery was not installed, no warehouses. Brown 85 Sons
at once put the mill in running order, purchased new
machinery from the East and built warehouses. In October,
toil, put their products on the market, named their flour
"Shastals Best" and claim that their products are as good as
the best. Brown SL Sons have and still ask for the patronage.
First, quality of the goods, next, believing it is the best policy
of people everywhere to trade at home "patronize home
industryl' keep your money at home. Every time a person
buys flour or any other goods fthat can be bought of home
manufacturers' or grown at homej the greater part of the
money paid out leaves the vicinity, only the small proit on
the handling of the goods stays here to pay taxes, build
schools and generally help in the upbuilding of our homes
P Brown 65 Sons have and will always stand for this prin-
ciple, and ask every one to think of this matter when buying
goods, and all things being equal, buy home made products.
