'18 Three times the Reaper grim hath taken toll, And every time a friend has passed to restg Well loved were they alike hy young and old, Their lives knew only what in life is bestg So well they did their work among us here, So faithfully their duties they performed, So little need was there of further test, That, lest they sorrow in this earthly joumey lind The All-wise Father called them Home to rest. A Resume A. O. Cooperrider The ready response of the people of Arcata and vicinity to anything that will further the 1 Q 1 interests of the high school is ample evidence that they are interested in the school and anx- ious that it succeed. The fact that it was organized twenty-three years ago, when a comparatively small number of California com- 4. ,:, munities had high schools, is another proof of the strong sentiment here in favor of giving the boys and girls every possible educational advantage. Knowing that the people are in sympathy with the school, and that they have faith in what it is doing and destined to do for the youth of this community, has made us feel keenly the responsibility resting upon us. It has been our aim to promote the growth begun in the earlier years of the school, a growth not only in numbers but also in traditions, variety of courses, general influence and repu- tation. We have endeavored to study the A. o. coopemuer, Principal needs and adopt the best available means for Science satisfying those needs. When the present seniors entered four years ago, they came a class of thirty-five. It was immediately evident that a force of five teachers could not efficiently handle the work with the enrollment now above one hundred, and a sixth teacher was promptly authorized by the Board. This enabled us to organize first year science work, to give increased attention to commercial work, draw- ing, language and music. A new difficulty now confronted us in the way of lack of room. A second story had been added to the building a few years previous, and further expansion in that direction was not possible. With a few make-shifts we managed to get along for two years, when a much needed assembly hall was completed. It proved, however, that these were only temporary measures of relief. Whether from an increase in the number of teachers, with the consequent increase in variety of courses offered, or from a general recognition of the need of high school training, the fact remains that instead of an entering class of 'thirty-five in 1913, we had to provide for a freshman class of fifty- five in 1915, the year the assembly hall was completed, and a like number of first year students appeared again in 1916. It was necessary to secure a teacher for part time in 1915 and she was employed for full time in 1916. For the year ending in june, 1913, the average attendance was ninety-two. This increased by june, 1914, to ninety-seven, and in June, 1915, it averaged ninety-eight. In 1916 it jumped to one-hundred and twenty-three, and for the first eight months of the present school year the attendance averages one hundred and thirty-six. The figures above show that while we have increased the number of teachers from five to seven, and increased the room and other facilities, these increases have not kept pace with the growth in attendance. We feel 7 that we have never been able to get ahead of the demands of modern high school education. We have attempted to keep the traditional subjects up to their former standard, making additional provisions so that a student may qualify for entrance to any of the colleges of the University of California. We have doubled the possible units of work to be done in commercial subjects, in drawing and in science. The work in music, making a modest beginning four years ago, has grown to include a regular course in theory and harmony and another in orchestra. We have not been able thus far to undertake work in manual training, domestic science, and physical education, courses for which there has been a persistent demand on the part of pupils and patrons. The need of vocational or pre-vocational work in high school, of the type to correspond with the industries of the locality, and large enough in scope to enable each pupil to give from one-fourth to one-half or more of his high school period to direct preparation for a vocation, is unquestioned. We have at our door a State Normal School, which means that a large number of our students will prepare for teaching. There are definite require- ments for Normal School entrance in accordance with which we must adjust our curriculum. We have a considerable number preparing to enter training schools for nurses, the requirements for which are high school graduation with certain prescribed subjects, provision for which must be made in our course of study. Humboldt Bay region with its railroad and water-shipping facilities is destined to develop rapidly as a commercial and manufacturing center. This means a corresponding increase in the need for young people trained for business and technical pursuits. The agricultural and live stock industries have great possibilities for the scientifically trained young man. Northern California offers increasing opportunities for those equipped to take up scientific forestry in its manifold phases. The development of water power and all that goes with it is another industry that will claim the atten- tion of the young people now in our schools. Thus have I enumerated a few of the many occupations in our own region that will require technically trained young people. Our high school should contribute its part for their equipment. If we do not train our own boys and girls to take the lead in these industries, they will have to give place to those trained elsewhere. The high school is the avenue that leads to all these occupations. The nature of the technical work and the sentiment of business men demand high school training as a pre-requisite to employ- ment. It gives a general knowledge and should give the basic elements of the training needed in their vocation. It gives the young people a vision that frees them from the fetters of narrow-mindedness and slothfulness. It trains them in the principles of co-operation, commonly known as the ability to get along with their fellow beings. Perhaps the social and moral training in our high schools derived from drill in the class room, from the student-body activities, and from the athletic field, constitute the most import- ant element in the preparation of our young people to take their places in the world. 8 SHIRLEY M.

What our part may signify in the great whole, we may not understand, but we are here to play it, and now is our time. This we know, it isa part of action, not of whining. It is a part of love, not cynicism. It is for us to express love in terms of human helpfulness. This we know, for we have learned from sad experience that any other course of life leads toward weakness and misery. David Starr. Jordan. Class Colors Class Flower GREEN AND GOLD A WILD ROSE ll Graduation Happy schooldays lie behind us, Life before us now is spread, Graduation's bliss is over, Bliss commensurate with dread. Many days are left behind us, Days of pleasure and of pain, Days of joy and days of sorrow, Days of sunshine and of rain. What before us lies we know not, But with faith in God and man, Let us still with steadfast courage, Do the very best we can. Let us then keep onward striving, Giving always of our best, Him who helps himself God helpeth, Who helps his fellow men is blest. 12 '-'-r KAN 55 x of 'X f-qi f' l" '1 6 I, Z , f 6? jf M A ,Q J. ,xv I TKM 1 s y v , 15456: I rv I x.

Scene: A. U. H. S., Arcata, Cal. Tlme: August 1913-1917 Act I Scene 1 l , Enter a Bunch of Freshmen ' The Freshmen exhibit their usual greenness, and are assigned to classes and studies. They attract a great deal of attention by their curious antics. Scene 2 The Freshmen are duly initiated into the mysteries of high school by the Sophs. Everybody enjoys the fun at the expense of the Freshies. Scene 3 This scene consists of classes, quaking Freshies, quarterly exes, "callings down," etc. This covers a period of ten months and completes the first act of the play. Act II Scene 1 Enter a Troupe of Frollcsome Sophomores Sophs score and initiate the new Freshmen. Sophs earn a "rep" as entertainers. Scene 2 Awful quarterly exes terrify everybody but no one failed, so things are all right again. . ., Scene3 Hal1owe'en. Sophs entertain-Masquerade. This is "the event" of the season and the Sophomores receive much praise. Note: The rest of the scenes may be omitted as they consist of things easily left out. Scene 4 Everybody happy! The last day of school and the Sophomores are Sophs no longer: they are Juniors. V Act III Scene 1-New Assembly Hall Enter Saucy Junlors Several characters have been dropped from our role, as they have not attended rehearsals, and others have been accepted in their place. -Juniors at last! The first thing we do is to presume to argue with the Seniors. Scene 2 This scene consists of a few social events, basketball, football and some class meetings, and covers about ten months. Act IV Scene 1 Enter the Senlors Seniors at last. We are the only ones who attract any attention. Note: The scene goes on as in preceding acts and reaches the climax in Scene 2. 1 Scene 2 Climax of the play. Commencement. Seniors happy, and we hope all the characters will be happy ever after. 18 '-2f' rn a x fs ' I X- ' W1 llll ld Qi , . - .s i I I ' PZATHE : ' EEK Y' I I I F5 ssso By NA Irornl. - BOARD 'oF Czusons. f feg I W I - 1 7 I - - mg- ll l Q ,, 'J . - rm- -LMI' I In i l ' I 'P' ,, ' I ., ' fum ' n . , A l -- Srila sg!

And, yes, that third nurse is Esther Lindstrand, the girl we all thought would become a news- paper reporter, and here she is a nurse."

But then it F , HJ -' ' I ff all I I V44 A' A - . . 1 cu ' A - - , I Q I walked into the Freshman study room, And all about me rose their busy hum, NVhich ceased when of me they became aware, Round went the whisper, "Lo, a Senior comes." I left them, and with grandeur in my heart Moved on to where the Sophs. were kept apart, No rev'rent whispers here but jibes and jeers, And one e'en laughed, "Gee, don t he think he's smart." O, what a fall was there, my classmates dear, From reverent regard to jibe and jeer, I Hed and'in my flight I passed full soon . To where the Juniors pored o'er volumes drear. All heads were bent, each student, busy was, And of my presence not a soul took heed, Till when I made a noise they all complained, "Keep .still or else get out, we want to read." VVith shattered pride and cracked and aching heart, My spirit in me drooped and fall'n apart, W'ith dragging step I went my weary way Back to the Senior class, and from them ne'er will part. Thus goes it ever in this world of ours, Familiarity contempt doth ever breed, And what, as Freshmen, We regard with awe, In later years can scarce command our heed. F. 22 Class Will We, the class of 1917 of the A. U. H. S., knowing that we are of sound mind now, but not knowing how long we will continue so, do hereby declare this to be our last Will and Testament. We leave, with regret, the silence of our voices to the building which we hope will soon be replaced by a more modern one. We leave to the juniors the writing of their class will and advise them to begin early to get ideas. We offer our sympathies to the Sophomores who have to study for an "ex", when in the Assembly the orchestra begins to play the new tune to "America", "Pretty Baby" or "Destiny". To the Freshmen we leave all Wilbur's surplus pencils Qwe think they belonged to them in the first placej. Collectively and individually: We, the Sauerkraut Club, composed of Mae Crawford, Annie McMil- lan, Ida Seely, Grace Seely, Margaret Matthews, Mary MacPherson, Emma Fletcher, Mazie Patten, Mae Chaffey, Ella Griffiths, Elida Ford, and Helen Smith do leave our charter in care of Blenda Larson hoping that the same, will in part, counteract her giggles, and we charge her to enlist no one in its ranks who does not belong to the Sniggles Family. We, Wilbur Monroe, George Stebbins, Oscar Larson and Walter Baker, furrowing our brows to think of something suitable, do hereby leave our scanty supply of vocal music to Squarie Carlson that he may take the burden of the High School quartet upon his sturdy shoulders. We, Ruth Christie and Rosella Damgaard, do leave to Janie Leveque our opportunities of, and diplomacy in, sitting on the divan on Mazie's front porch during and after refreshments fof course not alonej. I, Thomas E. Leavey, do leave to one Wendell Kerr, freshman, my fond- ness for the companionship of red hair and pink cheeks. We, Horton Brothers, late of Fillmore, Cal., do leave to all new students our ability to give forth hot air for the amusement of all listeners. I, Esther Lindstrand, do give to Lois E. Everding my frequent trips to Korbel that she may renew a sundered friendship in that region. We, Elenore Gaynor and Lottie Beer, do leave our friendship to May- nard Rasmussen and Wallace McMillan, because we think they would look nice together. I, Clyde Sage, do leave my artistic ability, and I, Miriam Tilley my musical ability, to Edward Mahoney. 23 We, Rita Scott and Elsie Ensign, leave to Minerva Hewitt a piece of our tongues that Wag all too frequently and have the reputation of turning forth more words per minute than any others belonging to members of the Senior Class. We, Harold Sorenson and Dee Armstrong, do leave our dramatic ability to Ernest Stromberg that he may develop ease and grace such as ours. It certainly seems necessary that we should bequeath something to Abe, the ever faithful janitor, so we will deposit in the Sand Bank enough money to buy him a new broom. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, we have hereunto set our hand and seal, this seventh day of March A. D. 1917. ' Class of 1917, Mazie Patten, Donald Horton, Witnesses. Mrs. S. Russell, Executrix.

VVhy should that appear in the Juniors' hour glass? Why that explains the size of the class. Almost half of them entered the preparatory course when the Humboldt State Normal opened. But I see three students returning to complete their high school work. There will be time for Normal School later. 1. Pull! Everybody pull for A. U. H. S. The Juniors certainly did their part of it when they pulled for a period off on the last day of school for some fun. But they landed with a bump and rebounded with a candy pull-at noon. .l As the hours and days and weeks go faster and faster there are still the same faces but another look is on them for one of their group has been called Home. "She hath done her bidding here, Angels dear! Bear her perfect soul above, Seraphs of the sky, sweet love. Good she was and fair in youth 5 And her mind was seen to soar, And her heart was wed to truth: Take her, then, forevermore, Forever-evermore." And last but not least Hashes the word-Loyalty.

That was the time when we, a bunch of timid "Freshies," en- tered dear old A. U. H. S. However, we successfully passed through our Freshman year and have now gained the dignity and honor of Sophomores. Our number is somewhat smaller than when we were Freshmen, but we still have thirty-eight members. After the first week in the fall semester of nineteen hundred and sixteen, we settled down to the work of our Sopho- more year. We have overcome our fear of "exams." and all other unpleasant matters we met in our first year. We, as a class, hope to accomplish that which our school and our respected class teacher, Miss von Glahn, would wish us to do. Our class officers are: Edward Mahoney, President: Frank Smith, Secretary and Alfred Pine, Treasurer. The first attempt at entertaining made by our class was the initiation of the Freshmen. Following their initiation into the ways of the school was a dance, given by the three upper classes. The Freshmen seemed much less frightened after their "get-acquainted" party just as we Sophomores did the year before. A On All Saints' Eve our class entertained the Faculty and Student Body with a dance in the Assembly Hall, preceded by "stunts" given by members of the class. The Hall was decorated with greens, witches, black cats and pumpkins. In athletics we are well represented, having members of our class on the basketball, football, and tennis teams. If we have anything to do with it, our school will surely win every contest with the rival teams of the county. Our class also takes part in the Guitar and Ukulele Club and in the School Orchestra, both of which have imparted much importance to the activities of the school. Our Sophomore year will soon be over. Can it be possible that two years have almost passed and that we will be juniors in a short time? We look forward to the work and pleasures to be ours in our junior and Senior years. Too soon the time will be at hand when we shall leave our Alma Mater so let us do our best in carrying out our ideals for the promotion of our school's welfare. 29 ul- i-1 11-1-1 lil .ii- 1.-1-Q .-...-11 .-1--1 i 1 1" P' ? sf. -fi" j X 1 ff QA 1 A A I: 4 - I... - f - .-3--1 - : iOx You 1.- "' I . gn, wwf up -nit- - ...-. .Ti ,M --ge 1 IN 2 1... fu... , 'cy , 1 r --2 .- .. -. 1 .Z J V f -.

BAKER MIRIAM F. TILLEY KENNETH HORTON We Need A New High School We are in great need of a new school building. The main portion of the high school building was completed in 1904, when there were about forty students in attendance. Eight years ago it was necessary to build a second story, and in 1914, the Assembly was added. With the school growing as rapidly as it is, how long will the present building hold the students, taking only space into consideration? . Not only are there too few rooms, but the rooms we have are ineliiciently equipped. The lack of apparatus in the physics laboratory makes it diflicult to carry out experiments successfully, while some have to be left out alto- gether. The two commercial rooms are in the basement and are poorly heated. On cold days it is necessary to keep an oil stove burning almost the whole day. There is a door from upstairs to only one of the rooms and when going to make up their extra twenty minutes a day the typing students must pass through the shorthand room, thereby disturbing the reciting class. One teacher has a class of six in the assembly hall. The members recite at a table in the front of the room, while the teacher divides her attention between the class and the studying pupils. These are just instances,-the most strik- ing perhaps-but like conditions exist in almost every department. When Professor Thomas, the head examiner of the University, was here last year, he said we were doing well considering our building and equipment. We want to stay on the list of accredited high schools and we are doing the best we can under the circumstances. Arcata as a community should be proud of her high school. Two other towns in the county have new modern buildings. Are we so poor that we cannot afford as much, or is the com- munity blind to the needs of the students? If so, it is up to us to make our needs known and boost for a new building! i-. There has never been so much difficulty in getting students interested in debating as there has been this year. A great many entered the debating class, but when volunteers for actual debating were called for, only four re- sponded. Then a few individuals were asked, but enthusiasm was lacking. It is seldom hard to get students to try out for athletics, then why should it be so for debating? It takes no more time. A good debating team is of more credit to a school, than a strong baseball or football team, because it repre- sents, more definitely, the aim of the school. The benefit of debating to the individual is invaluable. N o matter what one's work may be, the man who can present an argument so clearly and forcibly as to make his opponent see his point of view has a decided advantage. We have a chance to gain knowledge of this work so let us make the best of our opportunities. 33 l f! 1 X f xi " X ' I 'I4 L Ili r f of , 2 fs+"'2eE: ff A :df gif. 5'-3 - V gi g- Humboldt County Out beneath the sunset skies, Out where nature's beauty lies, Out Where trouble never tries, That is Humboldt County. VVhere the whispering through the trees, And the hum of busy bees, Echo on the sweetest breeze That is Humboldt County. Can you hear it calling you? Don't you see the sparkling dew, On the grass when evening's through, There in Humboldt County? There the redwood lifts its head Tall and stately o'er the bed Of the brake fern widely spread There in Humboldt County. How my whole heart burns for you! In my thoughts I yearn for you, Soon I will return to you, Dear old Humboldt County. FRANK SMITH, '19. 34 Hum boldt's Reputation In approximately the last six months three victims have been called to rest on the soft damp bosom of our Humboldt coast where they will probably continue to rest dreaming of their many joyous trips of the past, and hoping for a time to come when the water will again raise them from their bed of sand and allow them to con- tinue their journey in peace. But then again every part of them from bow to stern and from the tops of the masts to the deepest plates of steel is either directly or indirectly a product of the earth and is duty-bound to come back to its birthplace one time or another, so although the call may have been sent out a little earlier than they wished to have it come, still they had to answer, as we all must sooner or later, answer the last summons. The first one of these late unfortunates was the magnificent steamer Bear, one of the latest and largest passenger vessels on the Pacific coast which went to her last resting place "head on" just north of Cape Mendocino. While the large number of passengers were being rescued five went to watery graves. To-day the Bear is sitting high and dry on the beach and a crew of men just finished, a short time ago, removing the enormous cargo of freight which she carried, together with her machinery. There, this beautiful palace will be left for the sea- gulls and ravens to pick her decaying bones to pieces, or perhaps they may spare her and start a settlement, build homes and raise a new generation which will continue to keep the Bear company in its old age. One morning not more than a month ago, word came, that a similar tragedy had occurred on the coast opposite Samoa when the submarine H-3, one of the most modern submarines of the world tried to cross the peninsula to the Hammond Lumber Company's mill whose smoke it saw rising through the dense fog and took to be the smoke of its protecting "moth- er" ship, the Cheyenne. Well, smoke rises in a good many different di- rections, especially around here, but a com- l pass only points one way. After enduring fifteen hours of terrible tor- H-3 Wreck The Mllwaukee 35 ment, the crew, through good work of the Local Coast Guard, reached shore where they received much needed nourishment and care. To-day this under- water craft still rests, well set in the sand like a monstrous whale, while Uncle Sam has been making futile and costly attempts to bring her out into the deep blue sea where she may continue to be of service to her country. The salvaging operations which were again renewed after the holidays have proved very costly. The monitor Cheyenne, the U. S. tug Iroquois and the cruiser Milwaukee have been carrying on the salvaging work off shore. To-day, the latter, a beautiful steel vessel is battling the angry combers, while sitting high on the sand about one hundred yards from shore. It seems that while holding a heavy strain on the H-3 from a position close to shore the cable from the monitor to the Milwaukee parted, which caused the submarine to draw the Milwaukee into the breakers and in a few minutes more another of Uncle Sam's warriors had safely returned to her birthplace. A few days before while trying to Hoat a line ashore, a boat containing twelve brave men, capsized sending one across the Great Divide while the others barely escaped following in his footsteps. Now the people all over the country, and in fact the world, after reading about these disasters are exclaiming, "My, how awful that Humboldt coast must be! Whenever I am sailing I want to keep far away from there." They will naturally suppose the surrounding country harmonizes with the coast. Now is this the kind of reputation Humboldt wants? Are we deserving of it? Answer the question yourselves when you consider the first wreck was thirty miles below Humboldt Bar and the other two, two miles above. On the other side of both are thousands of miles of deep blue water. Nevertheless the first two vessels raced straight toward land, which they soon found, while the third, the most valuable of all was placed in the first row of breakers, and through a mishap which any "land-1ubber" would have expected, met her doom. If Humboldt is to be blamed, so be it, but I am sure before many moons the truth will be made public and this fair county will again step forth with a clear record to welcome the flood of incoming population. At any rate in the last few months her coast has fallen heir to an estate valued approximately at six million. VVhether she attained her wealth through her own skill or through someone eIse's unskillfulness remains to be seen. THOMAS LEAVEY, '17. NOTE: Since the above went to press, the Mercer-Fraser Co. has succeeded in transporting the H-3 across the peninsula and launching her in Humboldt Bay. 36 THE WRECK OF THE CRUISER MILWAUKEE A little U. S. submarine Ran ashore on the beach one day, Near a place they call Samoa, On the shores of Humboldt Bay. Then Uncle Sam sent a cruiser To put a line ashore, And fasten it on to the submarine, And drag her off once more. When finally the cruiser came fThe Milwaukee she was calledj She drowned a man, made fast a line, And heaved and pulled and hauled. But the drag of the sea and the cable Was more than she could standg And the gray old cruiser piled her bones High up on the Humboldt strand. And there she lies unto this day, A reminder grim and drear, That to try to do things cheaply, May often prove most dear. F. 37' My Robin Neighbors ' It is strange how little things unconsciously attract one's attention, to become later on the source of many hours of pleasure. Such was my experience one spring day, while in the orchard, when a flash of red crossed my line of vision. Turning to find what it was I spied a robin redbreast in pursuit of his mate, a pert little olive brown creature. The male bird had an exceptionally bright orange-red breast and the black bands on the side of his head were more clearly marked than usual. The female was perched on a branch not far away, and with her brown head cocked on one side, she watched the male carefully, ready to be quickly on the wing if he approached too near. He looked appealingly at her, then lifting up his head sang his sweetest song. She all the while calmly plumed her feathers, but when he had finished she glanced at him with a wise twinkle in her soft eyes and gave him a chirp of encouragement. He joyfully flew to a nearer branch, at which the little flirt tilted her head on one side and giving one bold chirp of approval, darted through the air. Mr. Robin was not to be daunted, however, and immediately took pursuit. Circling in and out among the trees they were lost to my sight. The next day while sitting on the porch I noticed two robins flitting in and out of the cherry tree. Could it be that the little flirt of the day before had really settled down with her ardent wooer? I watched them more closely and decided this was so, for when I once got a good look at the male with his extremely bright breast I knew two of his kind did not exist in our immediate neighborhood. They were flying back and forth carrying various kinds of material in their beaks: string, hair, grass, straw, all of which they had twisted together in a most surprising manner. One would smooth down the inside of the nest with his breast while the other went for more material. They had quite a. dispute over a strip of white silk, and chattered about it for several seconds. It was evidently decided not to use it as the male flew off with it in his beak, returning later with something more suitable. This happened to be a wad of hair that looked as if it had just come from some one's comb or brush. In a couple of days the nest was finished. I rarely went up into the tree, which had a platform built in it, that early in the year, but having found a subject of interest I ascended every day or so to watch my bird neighbors. If both birds were absent I would climb near the nest and look into it. The first time, I discovered one, the next time two, and finally at the end of the week four small blue eggs. After that, one of the robins stayed on the nest most of the time while its mate foraged for food. Two or three times during the next three weeks I noticed both birds were gone and threw small pieces of bread on the roof of the sleeping porch. But the horrid little robbers, the sparrows, found them and soon made quick work of devouring every crumb. The times when the nest was left alone were few and far between, as the male bird was very faithful about feeding his mate. Sometimes he sat on the nest while she went out for a little exercise. One morning, as I was standing on one of the highest limbs in the center of the tree, in order to have my eyes on a level with the tiny home, I noticed mother robin was quite excited over something or other, and hear- ing occasional peeps I knew the family had arrived. Papa robin was flying 38 back and forth continually, it seemed, each time with a mouthful of food. When he arrived the little beaks would appear wide open, above the edge of the nest, ready to devour anything in sight. Many times the father fed the little ones himself, but more often he gave the food to the mother who would tear it into small pieces before dropping it into the cavernous mouths of her hungry young. One day when both mother and father robin happened to be away I climbed upon a limb nearer the nest and looked into it. The little birdies noticed the swaying of the branches and opening their eyes and mouths began to call for food. As I looked down on them it seemed that all I could see was four black cavities and four pairs of beady eyes that appeared to be popping out of the small heads. I did not go into the orchard for a few days, and when I again ventured forth I noticed that the small birds were becoming quite lively. They were hopping about the nest and even perching on the edge where they would stretch their tiny wings which were not yet covered with feathers, as if desiring to follow their parents. At the end of the week they had become quite braveg they would hop along the small branch next to their nest and perch there ready to Hy and sometimes would Hutter to another branch about a foot away. When I saw that, I knew it was about the end of my pleasant hours spent in watching the robins. The next afternoon I went out, everything was quiet. I climbed up a limb near the nest and looked down on it, and sure enough the family had departed, leaving behind a good clean home. All I could do was to hope they would return the next spring. A VIOLET Oh! modest little violet In your bed so deep, With petals closed, your head is bent, As if you wish to sleep. Why not awaken pretty thing? And show your colors fair. You should have found a sunny spot, Instead of hiding there. The dazzling sun peeps in at last, You raise your dainty head, And cast a wondrous fragrance On all things overhead. We love you for your pretty grace, And for your colors too, But most of all the modesty, That does abound in you. GEORGENA M. C. WALSH, '19. 39 The Wanderlust Hear the night bird crying, crying, And the dark pines sighing, sighing, See the pale moon dying, dying, To the call there's no denying And I go, yet fain would stay. Though my heart I leave behind me, All the sweet home ties that bind me, There's the sight that ever blinds me, Fair mirage that but reminds me Of the curse upon me laid. 'Tis the Wanderlust that's calling Brooks no stumbling, brooks no falling, No eluding, no excluding From the heart the restless dart, When the Wanderlust is calling. Stately sway the forest tops, Into them a star-gem drops, Into them the night fowl flops, In the lake a lone frog hops, And my soul goes wandering there. Wide and dusty road before me, Living blue the sky bends o'er me, Nothing but myself to bore me To my heritage restore me Thus I answer to the call. Languid palm arms beckon slowly, Welcomes me the cottage lowly, Dark eyed virgins pure and holy, As I wander in my folly Bound by chains I cannot break. Tepid amber depths invite me, Clinging seaweeds oft excite me, Aerial visions oft affright me, But the winged things in their Bight Call me brother and I hear. S0 have I the bird for brother, And the gipsy for another, And the wide world is my mother, And this call, this Wanderlust, Is her blessing, not her curse. A. FLECKENSTEIN, 18 40 The Twentieth of August The strange story I am about to relate owes nothing to imagination, but is told as actual history. In the spring of 1914, Jean Renaud, a lieutenant in the French army marched from Paris, at the head of a body of old troops and recruits. He was to join his regiment which, encamped in the neighborhood of the Argonne forest, was operating against the Germans. They halted to rest and refresh the men and horses at a small village, not far from the lines of the army. After eating the best supper money could buy, the lieutenant lighted his pipe and strolled forth for an evening walk. M' Seeing an unusual crowd about one of the bivouac hres, he drew near to see what was going on. The object of attraction was a tall, swarthy, dark-eyed and black-haired Bohemian woman, dressed rather richly in a sort of half Oriental costume. She held the hand of a gray-haired old veteran and was telling his fortune. ' "Son of the Rhine," she said, "your days are numbered. Fire and steel have spared you thus far--but the bullet is cast that will cost you your life. Ere three moons have passed horse and rider will have parted company." The old soldier turned away from the prophetess with a blank look. "There won't be many of our troop left, lieutenant," said the old fellow. "if the woman speaks true. She has predicted the same fate to half a dozen of us." "Who is she?" asked Jean. "I know nothing of her except that she sells good brandy and wine and also turns a penny by telling fortunes." "Who comes next for his fortune P" asked the Bohemian, glancing around with her snake-like eyes. "Who craves the knowledge of the wise Zela P" "That I do, mistress," said the lieutenant, gayly, and advanced ungloving his hand. "I have no faith in your prophecies, though my men seemed so daunted by them." The fortune teller looked at the lieutenant's hand curiously. "The twentieth of August," was all she said. "The twentieth of August," repeated Jean. "What am I to make of that? I asked for my fortune and you reply?-" "The twentieth of August," repeated the forune teller, dismissing him with a wave of her hand. "I will tell no more fortunes tonight. But do not forget the date-you will have occasion to remember it." With these words she turned and went into the tent. The deep voice of the woman, her face and figure, mingled with the mystery of her reply, fixed the "twentieth of August" firmly upon the lieutenant's mind. In due time the lieutenant reached his army and shared alike with them the fatigue and dangers which surrounded them. It was well known that the Germans in this war made no prisoners, but a mark was the price set upon each soldier brought into their camp, and all the Germans lost no opportunity in earning it. This arrangement was fatal to the French out- post, because scarcely a night passed that the Germans did not comein such large numbers that they easily outnumbered the French. Also their attacks were made with such secrecy that they rarely failed. Col. Monteynard thought of a plan and every night strong pickets of cavalry were sent out 41 to protect them. But the Germans soon became acquainted with this and still more soldiers were sent by them, so that after awhile the picket service became of such a nature that a man might as well settle up his accounts before going, as he rarely, if ever, returned. Matters were in this state in the month of August. Eight days before the twentieth of August the lieutenant was favored by a visit from the fortune-teller. He had seen her often before this and was on quite familiar terms with her, but her manner previous to this had always been haughty and repellant. "What now, Zela ?" was his greeting. "I've come begging," she replied. "You are rich. I am poor." "Nonsense," replied the lieutenant. "My sword is my only fortune. My purse is as light as my heart." "Both are heavier than mine. You can leave me a trifle in your will." "In my will! I have no thoughts of making one," exclaimed the lieu- tenant in surprise. "You should," replied the fortune-teller, gravely. "The twentieth of August is near at hand." "But what is to happen on the twentieth of August?" "You are destined to fall on that day-the stars have declared it." "I shall cheat the stars then. And I shan't make my will. You say I shall be slain on the twentieth of August. I say I shall not. Now, an opinion is worth nothing if it isn't worth backing, and I'll bet you two of my best horses and fifty francs against a hamper of your best wine that I shall survive the twentieth of August." "Agreed," said the Bohemian. "We'll have it in writing," said the lieutenant, and called the army auditor. The Bohemian looked on gravely while it was being drawn up, and then withdrew with stately mien. The twentieth of August came, but there was no appearance of an engagement. It was the turn of the lieutenant's regiment to furnish picket duty that night, but two of his comrades were on duty before him. Evening came, the men mounted the horses and were ready to march when the sur- geon of the regiment appeared. "What is the matter?" asked the lieutenant. "Your friend, Max, who was to take command, is seriously ill." "Indeed! Then Arnold takes command." Arnold hastily dressed himself, buckled on his sabre and prepared to mount. But no sooner was he in the saddle than the horse, which up to this time had been perfectly gentle, began to rear and plunge violently. Every effort to calm him was without avail and he ended by throwing the rider and breaking his leg. "It's your turn now," said the surgeon. Although he was very brave, the lieutenant could not help but think of the prophecy of the fortune-teller as he mounted his horse. He was in command of eighty men and was joined by one hundred and twenty from another regiment. They halted near a marsh and as there were no men in front of these they remained in their saddles. About half past two they were surprised by a sudden attack from the Germans. The French were outnum- bered two to one and the army was cut to pieces. The lieutenant received at least eight sabre cuts and his horse, severely wounded, fell with him, rolling over on his riht leg. 42 At last when not a single Frenchman was left standing, the Germans began to plunder them, killing those who were only wounded. As the lieutenant watched them he thought that the prophecy of the fortune- teller would surely come true, when the horse suddenly made a convulsive movement which enabled him to free his leg. He cast about for a plan of escape and decided to throw himself into the marsh, though he had seen several men attempt this in vain. Over horses and dead men he crawled and his youthful activity and his good star enabled him to reach the swamp. Into it he sank up to his knees, but he toiled on a little farther until at last he stopped utterly exhausted. Loss of so much blood rendered him uncon- scious and when he came to himself the sun was high in the heavens. The Germans had apparently gone, so he endeavored to make his way toward firm ground. Though he had waded but a little way into the marsh, in his weakened condition he was nearly an hour getting out of it. And when finally he lay panting upon the dry earth, a sense of impending ill seized him and he raised his head to find himself looking into the face of a German. "Take my watch, my money, my uniform, anything but my life," he beseeched. V "All that belongs to me and your head too," the German replied. "My family is rich, make me your prisoner and you will receive a large ransom." "I should have to wait too long for my money," the other replied. "Hold still so I can cut off your head." But the lieutenant clung closely to him, and as the German was baring his victim's throat for the knife the latter felt something hard in his adver- sa:-y's belt--it was an iron hammer. I-Ie seized the hammer jerked himself free from the German, and without losing an instant he dealt a blow against the head of his antagonist. As the German fell, the lieutenant caught the knife and plunged it several times into the body. Free at last! He began to run and soon reached the French camp. ' That day he was attacked with a raging fever and was confined to the hospital for many months. After he returned to his regiment the fortune- teller delivered in person the hamper of wine he had won and congratulated him upon his escape. Later he learned that the Bohemian was a spy, entering the German camps at night and telling them of the movements of the enemy. A German cipher which served her as a passport was found upon her and she was sentenced to die. Before her execution the lieutenant questioned her about the fortune she had predicted. She confessed that by playing spy to both the French and German troops she was able to learn what moves were to be made on both sides. Then those who consulted her for their fortunes had confided in her many things that were transpiring in both camps, the rest was guess work. Many of the soldiers had laughed at her predictions, so she sought to strengthen their belief in her by using him as an example and by setting the date of his death so far ahead of time. Her relations with the officers had enabled her to find out that there were two on the list who should go on picket duty before the lieutenant that eventful night. To one of these she had sold drugged wine and just as the other was mounting his horse she had thrust a piece of burning tin into the animal's nostrils causing him to become unmanageable and to throw the man. This, then, was the secret of her knowledge. She went to the gallows with as bold and defiant an air as she had when she was predicting fortunes. MARY MacPHERSON, '17, 43 The Call of the Students You've been told of a tower that once stood on the Rhine, By waters which silently flow, You've been told of a high school which loomed up so line, Let me see-twenty odd years ago. Well, people, this building was good in its day, But the time of its service is past, Of course we might call it a theme for a lay, But it isn't the kind that will last. Old Father Time has turned many a page Since this tower on the Rhine was renowned, And it's one of the features of our active age That we crave a new high school in town. Now, don't get the hunch that we're "cocky" and proud. 'Cause we want a new home of our own, And don't cry out in the maddening crowd That we'll move in it solely to "bone," From the windows, imagine, whene'er it is clear Full many a sight may be seen: The deep rolling bay, the White City so dear Can be swept by our eye ever keen. O, never a student shall go on his way ,Up the great world's enticing trail, But he'll say in his pride, where'er he abide, "It's from Arcata High that I hail." You are welcome to build it whenever inclined, The sooner the better for us, just set up the corner stone any old time, And we sure will move in with a rush. P THOMAS LEAVEY, '17 44 Nature Impressions God's Tabernacle Softly comes the daylight, in waves of rose and gold the great sun comes, majestic, splendid, and over great wooded and snowy heights the sun- beams stray like boys at play, eager to hunt new paths and places. The mountains fresh from baths of dew, clad anew in their leafy green garments, raise their summits in their age-old greeting to returning day. Great shaggy crests rear skyward, topped by giant trees with grotesque and knotted limbs. Here and there a bare spot, a great stony crag, evince the work of the ele- ments-the lightning's herce stroke, the thunders crash-and here and there great boulders lodge, as if the giants of old growing tired of their play, had cast them down and left them. Down the steep sides of the mountain, the mountain torrent leaps and sings, sings in its reckless joy of life, sings as it futilely dashes against the worn rocks, only to spend itself in a harmless silvery shower over the nearby trees and brooksides. A bird's song echoes through the trees, the calling of the fox to his mate and even the shrill whistle of the pheasant and quail form part of the woodland melody. They are all worshippers in this, God'S great tabernacle. Far down below where the torrent Hows in a peaceful, babbling stream, where the mountains part, a little spot, clean and green as an emerald peeps out. A tiny cabin standing by the creek gives evidence that even humans seek these vast solitudes to live and thrive and work. The city's glare and noise, its falseness, its petty cares and grievances are not all man's earthly lot, but here under the majestic shadow of the friendly forest, he who loves nature may "hold communion with her visible forms," and she may glide "Into his darker musings, with a mild And healing sympathy, that steals away Their sharpness, ere he is aware." ' ESTHER LINDSTRAND, 'l7. The Mountains Majestically they rear their foreheads above the bustle and noise of the busy valleys. Serene and holy they remain the same year after year. Their very greatness humbles and yet exalts man at the same time. In the mountains one feels the nearness of Him who has created all this Wonder, oneself included. Looking about at the countless aisles of giant trees, the myriads of birds,'the millions and millions of small animals and insects invis- ible to the eye, but living, you feel just an atom of this densely populated sphere. Again you are made to feel that all has not been in vain: you may not be as large as the mountain, or as tall and straight as the trees or as graceful and beautiful as the clouds overhead, but nevertheless as their existence has been for some definite purpose, so have you been placed in the whirling stream of life to make your mark, and out on the mountains through the close influence of God you feel and swear that you will make that mark. LUCILLE GRAETER, '17. 45 The Mountain Stream What do I hear trickling in this wild looking place? Down under some cold, thick moss there seems to be a little, narrow stream of water flowing out slowly, so slowly that a leaf might stop it. How this little stream started I don't know, or how long it has been running. Perhaps it just started when I came there. I lifted the moss, but still the water seemed to ooze out of the ground. It was a gentle little thing, and although it did not have life, it seemed to ask me to put the moss over it again for fear the sun might discover it and take away its cool, refreshing taste or something might injure or turn its course in some way. I knew it did not want to be disturbed as it began to ripple and make a funny noise, so I put the moss back again. I followed the stream and it seemed to want to be more perfect as it went along. Large rocks lay in its way, but it gently curved around them without any noise. The stream was honest and clear, and along its course, could be plainly seen. Not once did it seek to become hidden. And at last it reached its destination, and proud of its life, emptied into a large, clear, bright, pool. EDWARD MAHONEY, '19. . SUNSET The day is spent, behind that purple cloud, The sun, his bright work clone, is sinking fast, E'en while we gaze, the length'ning beams are cast, And as he drops, the shadows quickly crowd. There is no sound, calm does the earth enshroud. Now o'er the brow of wooded hill he's passed, The glitter's gone on gleaming bay and mast, And roar of distant surf breaks silence, bowed. Dark night comes on apace, the sun is gone, But from the heavens which black and blacker grow, With splendor new created he will rise To cast his light on terrace, steep and lawn, Another proof by Nature sent to show That light from darkness not far distant lies. WALTER J. BAKER, '17, 9 Q 46 The Will of Allah "The will of Allah! The will of Allah!" The words broke the desert stillness and then all was quiet again. The heavy silence following the prayer seemed to mock man's presumption in believ- ing in the supremacy of any being over the mighty Spirit of the desert. In the orange rays of the dying sun was strongly silhouetted the form of a kneeling Arab devoutly murmuring his prayers with face turned toward Mecca and head submissively bent until it touched the sand. Behind him was the camel kneeling in submission to his master as the Arab was to his. Far back of the grotesque form, up against the face of the dipping ball itself stood a cactus, bold. strong, indomitable, the very spirit of the desert which waits patiently for its victim, scorning the lapse of years. It can afford to bide its time. Twenty, thirty times, may the Arab pass safely over its sands with his train of heavily laden camels bearing his merchandise, his precious perfumes and his spices, but the thirty-first or second-"Ah, Allah be merciful," then does the desert mete out a full portion of its terrible revenge. Like an insatiable monster filled with greed, it rises up in its anger, swallows the helpless human and buries him in its shifting sepulchre, or leads him on with elusive pictures of fair palm trees and celestial springs, and when at last the crawling, groveling pigmy, with hanging tongue falls gasping on the sand, striving for a last breath, then it exults in its power and watches gloatingly as the hot sun beats upon the remains and as the carrion perch upon the bones and croak their satisfaction. Hassan Ben Ebu had certainly made his allotted number of trips across the desert, for fully forty times, he had outwitted his watchful enemy in traversing the wastes of the Sahara. Each time had his skin grown more leathery and wrinkled, his heart more shriveled. and his purse fatter, each trip he had left his young wife for a longer space of time, lost his respect for her and learned to ignore his sturdy sons who played before the door. He shut them out of his heart and memory as things of the past, and now his shrunken breast held but three things: a seemingly misplaced religious devotion, a pas- sion for filling his coffers, and a scorn of the desert which he had so many times outwitted. This last journey had brought him enormous returns, for surely his purses were marvelously well filled. A sort of longing for the home which he had not for so long visited came upon him together with the realiza- tion of the approach of old age. The vision of his wife's comely face floated before him, and to his eyes the desert assumed a treacherous tenderness. This brooding air of peaceful calm wrought upon his feelings and further softened his heart. Suddenly the money-gatherer decided to settle down and spend his old age at home, and at sunset he dismounted from his camel, bowed meekly in the sand, crying "The will of Allah be done! Praises to Allah !" And though he could not know it the Spirit of the desert sprang up from its position of crouching watchfulness and exulted. It foresaw the doom of the Arab 5 worked to bring it about. The man who in his pride and strength could not be captured, might now through his meekness and change of heart, be entangled in an easy snare. It chuckled sardonically and all unseen danced fiendishly before the kneeling form in scorn and triumph. After many minutes of prayer and meditation the man remounted and continued his journey by night. In the early dawn the relentless Spirit was awake and, craftily gathering his forces, brought about a heavy storm. Soon the wind died away with a moan and save for the drifts which piled high on 47 every side lay the same endless stretches of gleaming sand through which the Arab moved in the direction of the oasis he was seeking. As time passed the oasis did not appear and a dull foreboding seized the man but soon the spot of green for which he watched appeared, though rather more to the right than he had expected. He changed his course in order to make a straight line for it, a trifle chagrined to find that he had miscalculated, that his sense of direction had been disturbed by the storm. Behind followed the gleeful Spirit, silently jeering and taunting the unconscious victim who had been thrown off his guard and had fallen so easily into the trap set for him. As the Arab advanced the green spot receded, but he was too much lost in anticipation and reverie to notice that it grew no nearer. He saw his wife's face light up at his approach 3 felt her tender, clinging arms about his weazened throat and knit his brows in a fruitless effort to recall the names of his offspring. "The eldest, the lithe slender lad, was it Ben Selim or Abdallah Mohammed? Ah, well, Allah be praised, he would soon find out. He would show them what a benevolent father could be. He would"-but a dry dusty prickle in his throat reminded him of his thirst. The spring must be quite near, but no, it was as far away as ever and more to one side, which side, the Arab found himself unable to decide. Misgivings assailed him-a mirage?--no, he was too old for that, he could no longer be deceivedg this was truly the oasis he sought. At his touch the camel quickened his paceg time passed and the sun's rays grew stronger, scorching his back like fire, but at last the waving plumes of the palms grew nearer,--then nearer still, until in imagination he sniffed the fragrance of ripening dates. Then suddenly the oasis seemed very far away. No longer could the thirsty traveler doubt that this was a mirage: truly his eyes had deceived him. But even though he realized this fact he knew nothing better to do than to follow the fickle palms, for he was now so far out of his track that he could not hope to find it again except by a stroke of luck. The weary master urged his camel forward again and with bent head muttered through parching lips, "The Will of Allah :-Oh my children,"--and all that day followed the changingnspot of green. Ever as he prayed that it might remain where it was, it receded slowly. The cruel heat of the sun fell upon him, the dust choked himg his thirst overpowered him. He became feverish and unnatural, but after eternities the sun sank into the sand and the heat diminished. Day came again, to find the Arab riding, lying forward on the neck of the faithful camel. As the sun rose higher his delirium increasedg he became crazed and rolled in his saddle. Again he saw the palms become stationary and again he drew near them. His throat crackled as he strove to emit a cry of bitter disbelief, but the green no longer melted into the distance at his approach. A feeling of joy and thanksgiving swept over him for he felt as one redeemed from the grave. For a moment he was sane and murmured, "The Will of Allah" in his heart though his lips were dumb. At last he reached the life-redeeming spring, feebly rolled from the camel and crawled near the edge to drink. One glance at the green translucent water and he drew back with a look in his eyes that was terrible to see, the look of one who in unspeakable torment is offered the cup of life and peace only to have it jerked from his hand. A cry of horror and anguish was forced through his cracked lips, the light of insanity reappeared in his eyes and he rolled about and cursed bitterly in his heart. Full well he knew at one glance that this was the famous "Poison Oasis of the Sahara." What poison this spring contained men knew not, but this they knew, that he who drank the treacherous draught would lie dead within half an hour as surely as the sun doth rise and set. The Arab gazed at the water for which he had traveled so many miles and 48 had suffered so much to obtain, this life renewing fluid which was to enable him to return to home and love, and saw instead a green poison, more deadly than a snake bite. He raved and cursed with the strength of a madman. tearing his throat in the struggle to emit words. Suddenly he leaped forward, a darting light of reckless despair in his glazing eyes, cupped his hands, filled them with the cool green poison, then drank slowly, deeply, and with relish. As he threw himself backward the realization of what he had done came to him. He regained the use of his senses and reasoned calmly, allowing himself fifteen minutes to live. His thoughts turned to his wife, home, and children. "All that was not for such as I," came huskily from the fevered lips. "The--will of Allah-be-done." Kneeling submissively to the will of his God he murmured his prayer in the golden light of the setting sun while the camel knelt behind him. Against the dipping ball a cactus stood up boldly, straight, unconquerable, indomitable, the very Spirit of the Desert. And the Desert Spirit obtained his revenge.

Although a number devoted their energy towards collect- ing material none seemed willing to debate. However, at the last c moment, Rosella Damgaard, Har- old Sorenson, Oscar Larson and Donald Horton responded. From " a X these the latter three were chosen, amgaard as alternate. night, March 10, Fortuna, represented with Arcata at Arcata, the question, 1 i-,A ' 'c il "Resolved, That some regular military 2 training be required of all boys of high school age, that is from 14 to 20, un- Harem S0'e"S"" less physically disabledf' Fortuna was unable to handle the burden of proof placed upon her, so the judges, james Mahan, As- sistant District Attorney Nelson and Clarence Coonan, decided in favor of Arcata. On the same evening Ferndale, de- ,., bating the same question, won from Eureka. As both Arcata and Ferndale upheld the negative, another question has been chosen for the final debate which will be held in Ferndale, April 18. Although the question, "Resolved, That motion picture theatres are a desirable amuse- ment," is not one upon which gooddebate work can be done, the Arcata debaters will seek to uphold the negative in a creditable manner. Rosella Damgaard 50 Commercial Turning back again to our first years in this dear old High School we can recall our introduction into the commercial world of the Arcata High School. It was a small room about 12x16 without modern equipment. TWO or three rows of seats were placed systematically together. Adjoining this main room was a tiny little box-like closet which served as a typing room. Four typewriters were ranged around the four walls, just leaving room for the chairs and their occupants. We were not especially impressed by this display but commended the brave teacher and students, who in spite of all odds were attempting to prove to the community what a useful thing is the art of stenography and typewriting. At the present time just as we are leaving our old school we are forced to look back at the advancement which has been made in the Commercial Department. The different branches of commercial work now hold full sway in a large two-roomed flat. A busy business aspect pervades and encompasses all who enter through its door. The first room boasts of our long tables. a blackboard, a large cupboard and desk. But do not think this room is bare. just glance around and see the neatly typed letters on display around the walls. But the lure of the typewriter's click leads us on. Here in the room beyond are ten typewriters all clattering merrily along. Shelves and paper holders, piled neatly with white typewriting paper, grace one side of the room while the work of the students is displayed in book form along the other side wall, But the newest and most wonderful addition to this room is a large three- drawered tiling case. We are gradually adding the newer methods of handling the increasing fiow of papers and letters. There are two full classes in first and second year shorthand, and there is scarcely one minute throughout the day when the typewriters are not busy. VVe thus leave this business-like atmo- sphere with the feeling that the day is not far off when we shall see greater things being accomplished within the walls of these commercial rooms. The night after visiting the commercial department of the A. U. H. S. I had a most wonderful dream. I believed myself to be in a large busy office. People were rushing hither and thither with papers and letters while others were clicking away on the typewriters, and still others were taking down dicta- tation at the rate of about 150 words a minute. What in the world was I in? Bewildered beyond reason I walked up to one of the young ladies and asked her what sort of place this was. "Why this is the Commercial Ofiice of the A. U. H. S. They have built this place for the use of those taking shorthand and typewriting. The classes in commercial work have increased to such num- bers that the trustees were forced to build us a separate building. We have forty Underwood Typewriters now, a Dick's Rotary Mimeograph Machine, three Dictaphones, a Marchant Calculating and Adding Machine, besides others of the latest inventions for our work. We are planning on having-1" Here I woke with a start. Well, that was certainly some dream for the A. U. H. S. I am sure we all heartily wish that some day in the future this dream may become a reality. 51 ORCHESTRA Left to Flight: Walter Baker, Alden Sage, Elenore Gaynor, Clyde Sage, Miss Mabel Briscoe, Theodore Westdln, Mellna Dubeault, Mrs. Shirley Russell, Miss Anne von Glahn, Greta McConnaha UKULELE CLUB First Flow: Mary Durdan, Miriam Tilley, Eleanor Crawford, Lois Everding, Lorene Robertson, Elenore Gaynor, Mary MacPherson, Helen Smith Second Row: Emma Fletcher, Norma Foster, Ivy Wentworth, Lottie Beer 52 Organizations The Student Body The Student Body holds it regular meeting the last Friday in every school month.

CLYDE SAGE WILBUR MONROE " M ' my mmm ff " Lois EVERDING This year more school spirit has been shown in our monthly meetings. This has been manifested in several ways. In the past there has been dif- ficulty in raising money for athletics but this year a student body tax has been levied which worked out very successfully. Everyone paid his dues promptly and there has been sufficient money to carry on student activities. The manner in which the students backed the Hi-Jinks was a credit to the school. Approximately eighty students took active part in the perform- ance and all worked together in perfect unison. That was an instance of real school spirit. Ukulele and Guitar Club This year a Ukulele and Guitar Club has been organized under the lead- ership Of Mrs. Russell. They practise once a week and often contribute to affairs outside of the school in addition to the regular student body meetings. The Orchestra An orchestra, something entirely new, was formed this year under the direction of Miss von Glahn. Practise is held twice a week regularly. Much praise should be given the director and members for they have added greatly to the enjoyment of the student body this year. A good part of the pleasure derived from their playing has come in the form of matinee dances given each month. The Girls' Agricultural Club The Girls' Agricultural Club consists of ten members. They entered into a bean contest this year. Hildegarde Carlson won the first prize for growing, canning and selling her beans. Elenore Gaynor has the distinction of hand- ing in the best essay on "HOW I Grew and Canned My Beans." The Boys' Agricultural Club The Boys' Agricultural Club seems to have been a failure this year. One would think in a community like this a great deal of interest would be taken in such an organization. Shame on the boys for letting the girls get ahead of them in a field of work which is so essentially man's! 53 School Notes Aug. 14-School started today with an enrollment of one hundred and fifty pupils, with such a large Freshman Class that everywhere one looks there is green upon the horizon.

U. H. S. on Fri- day evening, September first, between the hours of eight and twelve, when they were initiated by the Sophomores. Each lit- tle Freshie was duly decorated with a pretty green "F" on his cheek or forehead. T hen each in turn received his medicine, con- sisting of some limburger cheese, olive oil and beet juice. A few too young to drink punch were given their nipples and bottles of milk. Two Freshmen rather fond of wading were given a pan of water and one was fortunate enough to get in with one foot, while the other one was unable to find the pan, so was deprived of this pleasure. The Sophs. were very good in giving shampoos which were supposedly rotten eggs, but really only water in an eggshell, which was broken upon the victim's head. V Following the initiation Wagner's two-piece orchestra furn- ished the music for the dance. Punch was also served. The Assembly was prettily decorated in nasturtiums and huckleberry greens. On Saturday evening, October 28, 1916, the Sophomores gave the student body a masquerade ball. The Assembly Hall was artistically decorated in huckleberry greens, witches, black cats and all the weird emblems characteristic of All Saints' Eve. During the first part of the evening two pantomimes were staged entitled, "Lochinvar," and "The Girl and Her Three Suitorsf' Earl Molander took the part of the much sought after girl and kept the audience guessing who he was. There was also a fortune-telling booth where everyone was able to learn his future. Many clever costumes were in evidence, especially that of "our pet Freshman," Wendell Kerr, who came arrayed in a Dutch suit with red bloomers and a blue waist with a black tie. But the Sandman called early on Wendell and he went home. Frank Smith and several others slept through the party-but Fortuna was responsible for this, so no apology was necessary. A dance was given on December 9th in the Assembly Hall, to celebrate the end of the Hi-Jinks and also the end of 1916 Athletics. The other three high schools of the county were in- vited. Eureka was well represented. Music was furnished by Messrs. johnson, Haltinner, and Courtright. Punch was served throughout the evening and every one had a good time. Christmas Festivities At 12:15 P. M., on December 21st, the Senior Class had a banquet and Xmas tree in room eight. Following the banquet, which had been prepared by members of the Senior Class, the Xmas tree was unburdened of its load and the class went back in spirit to childhood again. 58 Junior Candy Pull Matinee Dance Eureka Dance Senior Party Matinee Dance Debate Dance The Junior Class had their annual candy pull in room six, from 12 until 1 o'clock. The odor of boiling sugar and milk made the Sophomores and Freshies wish that they were Juniors so they could have a candy pull, too. At 2:30 that afternoon the High School Orchestra gave a dance in the Assembly. The hall was cleared of seats at noon so the dance commenced promptly at the scheduled time. Ten cents admittance was charged, and the sum of 37.90 was cleared, to go toward buying new music. Ella Griiiith and Walter Baker played for a couple of dances and gave the orchestra a rest and a little fun. On the evening of December 22, Eureka gave a dance and the Arcata High was invited. Those who were able to go had a very good time. Friday evening, January 12th, was spent pleasantly by mem- bers of the Senior Class at the home of Miriam Tilley. The party was in honor of Argyle Desmond, who left the following day for Eureka where he has taken up his studies in the E. H. S. The first part of the evening was spent in dancing. The boys seemed rather bashful at first, but finally got up enough spunk to ask the girls to dance. The girls took turns and furnished the music for dancing. T iring of dancing, cards were taken up. At eleven o'clock refreshments consisting of ice cream, cake and nabiscos were served. After refreshments, came speeches, then informal talks. The party broke up at twelve o'clock. On Friday afternoon, March 2nd, the orchestra gave its third dance of the season. The new school drums arrived on the previous VVednesday and were thoroughly tried out and ap- proved by the student body. Saturday evening, March 10th, a dance was given in the Assembly Hall, after the debate, in honor of Fortuna. The hall was prettily decorated with ivy and daffodils. The school or- chestra, which deserves a great deal of praise, furnished the music for the occasion.

Although the characters had little over two weeks to work up their parts, they arose to the occasion and the production was a big success. Synopsis The scene is laid in a Berkeley boarding house. Tom Harrington, a uni- versity student, and his roommate, Reginald Black, are in arrears with their board bill, and Tom is also far behind in his studies. He goes to San Fran- cisco for a new military uniform and attends a banquet at the Palace Hotel, where he meets Marion Davenant and her father, a rich old miner of the "forty niner" type. Here he spends the money Black has given him to pay the board bill. On his return he is met with numberless bills and notices of delinquency in his studies, and worst of all, a telegram announcing that his father and sister, Dulcie, are coming for a visit. To cover his tracks he in- duces a Freshman to play the part of a new professor and the inopportune arrival of the real professor forces Tom to bulldoze him into masquerading as a Freshman. A desperate time for Tom and Reginald follows. In his efforts to escape disaster Tom causes an estrangement between Reginald and his sweetheart, Ruth, the niece of the landlady, Mrs. Wiggins. Mrs. Wiggins takes a fancy to the miner, Davenant. Tom's duplicity is discovered and he is forsaken by all but Nugata, the Japanese servant, who can say nothing but "yis." He resolves to tell the truth and finally, aided by one little lie and Nugata's "yis," he is forgiven by all, and everything ends happily. Comments Lynn Keltner as Tom Harrington .surprised his many friends with as clever a bit of acting as has been seen in amateur theatricals for a long time. The part of Reginald Black, was acted out in true college life style by Harold Sorenson. Dan Davenant, a typical forty-niner, and his daughter, Marion, in love with Tom, played an important role in the working out of the plot, the parts being taken by Thomas Leavey and Myrtle Teal, respectively. The two professors, Wilbur Monroe, as William E. James, of Stanford, the rival college, and Chester Patenaude, as Professor Magee, the director of the "gym" displayed unusual talent in their parts. james Roberts, freshman, the pseudo-professor, brought down the house with his clever acting and Lottie Beer, as Nugata, the japanese servant, whose vocabulary was limited to "yis" made a big hit with the audience. 60 The part of Byron Harrington, the stern but proud father, was ably sus- tained by Argyle Desmond, while Vida Knapp was a very natural Mrs. Wig- gins, "a poor lone widow" easily taken advantage of because of her kindness of heart. Maude MacPherson and Norma Dodge, who took the role of Ruth and Dulcie, respectively, were especially good, and Dawley and Widow Maguire in the persons of George Stebbins and Alethe Gaynor come in for their share of praise.

This is the first time the old A. U. H. S. "grads" have really been in earnest about forming an association and most of the graduates have joined. That it is a permanent organization is shown by the real enthusiasm mani- fested by the members. Many successful social affairs have been given, and the Association is now on a firm financial footing. Space will not permit individual mention of our entire alumni, but the Class of '17 and their Alma Mater extend to them their best wishes for suc- cess in the future.

Out of a list of nearly thirty, we received this year only the few men- tioned below: "Manzanita"-Your paper is excellent and the art department is especi- ally good. "Breath of Ocean"--Yours is a very interesting paper and one takes great pleasure in reading it. But why not have the jokes last? "Copa De Oro" is one of the best papers we received. It is interesting and well arranged. "Sequoya"-- Your literary department is very good, but why not more art? It adds greatly to a department. "The Dawn"-Yours is a very neat paper. Both "The Rural Life Move- ment" and "Commencement" numbers are very interesting. "The Clarion"-Yours is a very good little paper, but don't you think it would be better to put the ads in the back? "Tomahawk"-Your art department could be greatly improved, and the cover be more artistic. Your literary department is good. "Megaphone"-Yours is a splendid paper. The material is well arranged, the drawings are good. The cover design is very attractive. "Sequoia"-Yours is a very artistic paper. A few short poems would im- prove the literary department. An attempt at verse writing is as laudable as an effort to write prose, and its result equally interesting and enjoyable. 63 Mrs. Hai Jolly Seniors um . vw : wwe .. , -WW? - MQ2iwf:W'm .Q . 1, . ,- ' I , x V-ya..-.,a,-f on to the Rlggln The Lucky Four Debating Coach 64 pm...-rlrf 3 1 5 a ! . f ,nwffi Q whlzn A- A-I-h' 'ftI"4" Mu' J' Hx, -"L W5 -.

U. H. S. football team journeyed to Fortuna to play their lirst game of the season. Both sides put up a hard iight and at the end of the lirst half neither side had scored. Arcata lost one of her best men during the first five minutes of play. The score at the end of the game was 7 to O in favor of Fortuna. De- spite the loss of a good player our boys fought hard until the end. Arcata vs. Femdale On Saturday, November 4th, the second game was played at Arcata with Ferndale. Both teams were evenly matched and the game was closely contested throughout. Both sides scored during the first half, the half ending with the score of 13 to 6 against us. During the last half Ferndale scored seven points while Arcata was able to score seven, the final score being 20 to 13 in Ferndale's favor. Mahoney, Stebbins and MacPherson won applause by their hard line bucking. Arcata vs. Eureka The last game of the season was played in Eureka on Monday, November 12th. The Eureka team outweighed our team about thirty pounds to a man. Most of our players on looking at the Eureka boys knew not what to think. With no chance of winning our boys went into the contest full of courage. No one was hurt and the game ended with the score 53 to O against us, not equaling the 61 to O game, how- ever. This was the iirst time Eureka had defeated Arcata in nine years. Some one had to lose. Hats off to the winner. 67 Jane LeVeque, guard Ruth Chrlstle, sub Anna Fleckensteln, Edna Turner, side center guard Jessle Pritchett, forward Lottle Beer, Ceflfel' lla Mathews, sub Ivy Wentworth, Elenore Gaynor, sub forward 68 , Girls' Basketball Esther l.lndstrand,capt., Mazle pagan guard forward The first game of basketball was played at Fortuna, October 28, and the Arcata girls declare that it was the toughest game they have ever played, Fortuna having no mercy on them. The Arcata girls worked hard although they were outclassed at the start. At the end of the first half the score stood 15 to 3 against them. Although our girls tried hard in the last half they were unable to hold their oppon- ents down and the score at the end of the game stood 29 to 9 in For- tuna's favor. The second game of the series was played at Eureka and Arcata was again defeated. Although the team had no chance of winning, the girls played hard and deserve a great deal of credit for trying. The score was 37 to 9 in Eureka's favor. The last game was played November 9th on our home grounds. Both teams showed splendid team work, the Ferndale girls having a small advantage. After a hard fought game the Ferndale girls came out victorious, the score standing 27 to 16 in their favor. Although the girls have not won a game they still have hope and are looking forward to next year's games. 69 Ernest Stromberg, sub vi' Charles Harpst, Guard Wallace McMlllan, center Ernest Carlson, sub 1 fi kv A . .

Captain Sor- enson succeeded in getting two teams out and practice games were held every night. Games were also played with the Normal School which aided a great deal in picking a good team. The first game was played at Excelsior Hall, Saturday, February 3, be- tween Arcata and Fortuna. The team work of both teams was exceptionally good but our boys displayed more skill in the last half than in the first. The score stood 19 to 13 in Fortuna's favor at the end of the first half. The last half proved very exciting, Fortuna scoring 13 points and Arcata 20. Up to the last minute Arcata was 1 point behind but a iield goal by Stebbins put them one point ahead. The game ended with the score 33 to 32 in Arcata's favor. The team journeyed to Ferndale the following Saturday to play the sec- ond game of the series. The Arcata boys were outclassed from the start and the game ended with the score 43 to 24 in Ferndale's favor, The last game was not played with Eureka, as Ferndale had already captured the championship. Eureka wished to get an early start in baseball and stated that they did not wish to play. 71 we I 7- I "ll: Wa . .

Carl OH 5 shortstop Catcher The lirst baseball game of the season was played March 28th with Ferndale at Arcata. One, Stanley Pine, started things in the game when, first man up in the first inning, he slapped a snappy single over second base. Sor- enson followed him with a walk, and after Carlson popped out to third base, Stebbins walked. Nay, more, McMillan walked, too, Pine scoring. Harris struck out and then big brother Alfred Pine brought in Sorenson and Stebbins with a hit through second. McMillan stole home for the fourth run, Alfred Pine being caught off first base for the third out. Such is the important part of the story of the game, for after the second inning Arcata was never headed or in danger. Two hits and three walks brought the four runs that gave Arcata a safe lead. Arcata gained two more runs in the fifth. In the lucky seventh Arcata secured two more runs and also one in the eighth, making a total of nine runs. Ferndale secured her only runs in the fifth inning. MacPherson made his debut on the mound and worked well from the first inning to the ninth. He disposed of eight men and walked but four. The game although exciting could not be called fast be- cause of the poor condition of the diamond. The locals will meet the Eureka High School nine on the latter's diamond next Saturday and a fast game is anticipated.

Arcata defeated Fortuna by taking four events out of Five. Eureka defeated Ferndale. The finals came off the following Saturday, Arcata playing Eureka. Eureka defeated Arcata thus claiming the championship. The members of the A. U. H. S. team played hard but they did not have the "pep" they showed the Saturday before. Track Although Arcata has never done much in track, it is hoped that a team will represent- Arcata at the track meet to be held at Ferndale on May Sth. Last year the following team represented Arcata at the track meet in Eureka: Pine, Anderson, Mahan, Desmond and Steb- bins. They did not carry away any honors but they did arouse the feeling that Arcata should be well represented in the track meet this spring. 75 3-: . 2 W . 7 I .

WESTERN "ROAD-A-LITE" Asphaltic Pavement will stand the heavy traffic. It can be used on concrete, brick, water-bound macadam, gravel and decomposed granite roadways. It is a tax-saver, and the pride of every community using it. Have you ever figured what dust and mud have cost you annually? Good streets increase values of property. A Stanford University Drive is surfaced with WESTERN ROAD-A-LITE Asphaltie Pavement-used annually by thousands of automobile tourists. THE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT of the State of Maryland reports the satisfactory condition of a Maryland Macadam road surfaced with asphalt in 1910. This road was subjected to constant heavy traffic for six years, and during that time maintenance cost practically nothing. This is the way to capitalize the tax-payer's investment in old. crushed-rock streets and roads. Use them for foundations for new, asphalt-bound tops. instead of throwing them away and making a second investment in costly streets or roads. new from the ground up.-Highway Magazine.
