We hate to leave your joyous halls, U We've learned to love your red brick walls. But we must leave your sacred soil, And launch on the sea of work and toil. How oft While on life's turbid sea We'll all look back and dream of theeg And when We've reached our journey's end W'ell wonder if you're still our friend. Now noble guide we're leaving thee To the Junior class of twenty three. We trust they'll love and cherish all, E'en study rooms and red brick wall.

I had not wandered far, when what should greet my ears Bug a band of noisy instruments, and a hundred thousand cheers. I was a little curious to find out what it was about, And so I gathered speed, and continued on my route. I wen: a ways then stopped--there was a parade a coming, And all along beside it, the joyous crowd was running. I listened to the music, and heard the tramp of feet, And as the band came closer I discovered that their leader, straight, was Pete. The people cheered and shouted, as he proudly passed them by, A second Sousa he'd become, a hero in every eye. Then came the circus coaches, drawn by horses grand, With animals of all descriptions, some from every land. As I watched the cages pass filled with monsters grim, I noticed in a lion's cage, a maiden, dark and slim-- She sat upon a lion's back, and stroaked his tangled mane, I looked closer--it was Laura, and taming lions was her game. I rushed to the circus tent as fast as I could go, I wanted to be the first one there, and sit in the formost row. But the tent was very crowded, they woulden't let me in, I told the ticket agent what I thought, and said it with a Vim. And while I raved and sputtered, I bumped into a clown-- He laughed at me, then calmly asked: "Well, when did you hit the town?" , And as I stood and glared, the crowd came 'round to see the fun, But with another look I knew that it was Roy Sorenson. We talked about the school days, and all our classmates too, And wondered where they were, and wished too that we knew, -- When Roy stopped to think. "Why not try the crystal gazer?" So off we went, he introduced me to Madam Consume de Razor. I asked her about my classmates, where they were, or what they did And then she slowly turned her crystal, and this is what she said-- "I see a pretty maden in Orental garb, She sits on silken cushins, and is Madam Stephnapoulis Lard. Her husband is a Turkish count, of undisputed. fame, And to her former classmates, Geraldine is her name. And now the scene is changing, another girl I see, She's dressed in a red bathing suit, for a dip into the sea, You used to call her Lois, but she's Mrs. Hemphill now, She's won the swimming title for all the world around. 'Annette Kellerman isn't in it, when Lois is on deck,' So says her husband Wallace, who is now an architect. The scene is changing once again, my crystal looks on fire, I see a red-headed girl, yes, 'tis our Sophia. A home she's founded for babies far and near, But only little red-heads can be admitted here. Bernice has become a milliner, on Broadway has her shop, Her wonderful creations have started Paris into talk. Betty now is famous, an opera star is she, She takes her audiences by storm, in 'Sausages ond Cheese! 10 Thelma is a football coach on the biggest eastern teamg While Harland is a soda clerk, and his sodas win him fame. Catherine Plant is now a radio operator, And in her Honolulu home, to private messages she caters. Grace Davidson is the speaker in the legislature now, While Margaret is a farmer's wife, and helps him milk the cows. Francis is a junk man on Broadway, in New York, And sells the people everything, from rouge, to ice-cream forks. He took for him a wife, several years ago, And calls her, 'His Loleta', and all like that you know. Grace Aggler is a suffragette, in foreign lands she roams, Telling a l the native women, that a man breaks up the home. But no iny friends, the crystal bri hnensg sweet music do I hear 7 It is no one but Alson, who is now an organ grinder. He travels on from town to town, with his monkey on a chain, And right at present you can find him, down in sunny Spain." I left there lighter-hearted, since I heard of class-mates dear, For I had not seen or heard of one for nine or ten long years. I'll settle down contented now, ne'er again to roam, In a little cottage by the sea, which I shall call my home.

Dec. 19 May 25 May 29 1921-22 Aug.15 I arose about5o'clock this morning, having passed a sleepless night. Started to school early, where I entered as a Freshmen with 45 others. Came down the stairs this noon six steps at a time and found Mr. Cooperrider waiting at the bottom for me. My first calling-down. Duly initiated by the Sophomores. Managed to get through without any serious mishaps. Amid great' excitement we moved over to the new High School and suffered the many indignities the upper classmen imposed upon us. The Freshmen picnic was a grand success and was the last time we gathered together as Freshmen. Entered school as a Sophomore and found that our class had dwindled to about 25. Initiated the Freshmen, but had rather bad luck because the lights went out. The dancing afterward was fine as light was furnished by four candles and one lantern. The Hallow'en Dance by our class was a howling success. Somebody kissed Miss Boudinot. Our class gave a benefit dance and realized a neat sum. School let out to-day. Tomorrow we have our picnic. Grand picnic at Moonstone. A good dose of sunburn has imprinted this remembrance on my brain. No dou- bt some of the teachers would like to know that fact. Walked lazily to school and looked with great dis- dain on the lower classmen. I am a Junior now. Our class now numbers but 22. Our class pins and rings arrived and were much ad- mired. We had a fine Candy Pull to-day. The Seniors had a party, but it will be our turn next year. Great agitation at roll-call this morning. It was raining and we had to entertain the Seniors. Rush- ed over to Eureka and secured the Auditorium and then hurried back. The machine I was in took over all the eats. Gee some of the girls are going to be fine cooks. The party was a great success and one that will be long remembered. On the way home I sat in the back seat with our teacher. We hit a big bump and the teacher lost her dignity for a few moments. Guess they are human after all. The last day of school. Only one more year. Came to school from force of habit. I am now a mighty Senior and enjoy the privilege of sitting in the south-west corner of the assembly hall. 12 'gg' .2-1, Sept. Jan. to Apr. Freshies and Sophs had a big fight to-day. Some of the Senior boys interfered. Mr. Cooperrider gave a' little talk to the Senior boys on "How to behave when the lower classman are having a slight conf lict. ' Wonder where all the faculty members were. These months have been filled with graduation plans, personal and commencement cards, pictures and work on the annual Advance. The Juniors ought to be entertaining us pretty soon. Our class pennant arrived and is being much admired. Out of our class of forty-five four years ago there remain but fifteen. Others have come in, so' now we number twenty. Alson Brizard '22 , .E V, - J -,, 1.. .

A. Hill Activities. No other class has been represented so well in school activities as the class of '23, Our boys and girls were very active in athletics and were found on every team and in every phase of athletics. In interclass contests we were never at the bottom, but always near the top of the ladder. Two of the most influential stud- ent body positions, those of Treasurer and Athletic manager, were held by Jun- iors. In class activities we also have been with the leaders. On the closing day for the Christmas Holidays, we enjoyed a candy pull in the Science room. Later in the year a party was given which was attended by Seniors and Juniors. The Juniors hope, with cooperation, to make the coming school year when they will be Seniors a banner year in the history of the class.

Davies At the beginning of the year plans were made to initiate the Freshmen. Later the plans were carried out to the great amusement of the Student Body, faculty, and guests. A mock marriage was staged and Miss Taylor, the blush- ing bride, was given away by her state- ly mother, Alyce Spetz, to the groom, Claude Rose. Mrs. Acheson took the part of a chorus girl, dancing a few graceful steps, accompanied on the piano by Miss Dunton. The wee Fresh- men were put through various stunts, a number being wheeled around in baby carriages. The Sophomores also gave a Hallow- e'en party in the gymnassium. The hall was prettily decorated with evergreens, black and gold streamers, and variously colored balloons." Games and dancing occupied most of the time, after which a yelling contest was held by three groups, each yelling A. U. H. S. yells. The group yelling the loudest received asa prize a bag of stick candy. The Sophomores have creditably taken partinthevarious school activities. They gave a candy sale to raise funds to help one of the Red Bluff School students, the only survivor out of thirteen injured in an auto-bus accident at a railroad crossing while on their way to school. Lorna Cochrane '24, 7 KJ .Jx ill ,Illini .fn l llff M . . 'MTX On August 15, 1922, eighty timid Freshmen entered the Arcata U.H.S. halls of learning. We patiently waited, while the upper classmen and sophmores tried to torment us, until the bell rang and then wt were put under the guidance of Miss Dunton, our class teacher. We elected the following officers: President - - Thomas Murphy. D, Vice President - - Newell Dixon. Sec-Treasurer - Vincent McClure. In September came the initiation night. 1 The Sophomores were full of pranks .to play on us unsuspecting, innocent Freshmen. , ' By theitime Christmas came we were welliestablished in the ways of .ii null ', it ui ii. it ll T xy ,. lf iii. 1 no lifl 5,- sf-L , M v u nrrue high school and were loyal members of the Student Body. After the holidays were over, we again elected officers for the second semester: President - Dymae Baldwin. Vice President - William Touhey. Sec-Treasurer - Daven Devlin. We also planned a party to be held February 10, to which we invited the sophomores and faculty. Everybody had a good time. As for the games, who could be more enthusiastic or interested in them than the Freshmen? This is shown by the fact that several of our class have received A's for their part in athlctif.

We have this year awakened to the fact that too much money has been spent on our annuals. In recent years it has cost the Student Body approximately one thousand dollars to put out a book worthy of the school. That is entirely too much money for a school of our size to spend in publishing an annual. Considering these facts, there were but two ways open for us to follow. We had either to print the book ourselves or not put out a 1922 edition of the "Advance" We decided to attempt the former. We have worked hard to accomplish our task, but, having finished, we believe it is worth the time we have put on it. It is our book. All the printing, including half tones and headings, we did ourselves on our own printing machine. We have endeavored to publish a book as good as, if not better than, any put out before and to cut the price in half. We have accomplished the latter, and we leave it to the reader wheth- er we have succeeded in the former. We take this opportunity to thank the Board of Trustees of the Arcata Union High School for purchasing the printing machine which has made this edition of the "Advance" possible. The printing of the "Advance", however, is not the only thing which can be accomplished by the machine. From time to time we need to have printed posters for games, advertisements for plays, tickets, etc. All this can be done on the printing machine and expenses thus lessened. When we consider the reduction of expenses and the satisfaction derived from doing our own work, we are certain that the Trustees made a thoughtful and a very wise move when they purchased the printing machine for the school. 21 Q W Vllilllfw ' if Q c ijiw Wllllllli fwfsex l l lfill sf ill ,fi 'flaw 7 .

The "South- ern Cross" hanging low in the sky, the pale moonlight peeping inquisitively into the huts hidden in the banana grove, and the air heavy with the scent of flowers betokened the arrival of summer. A soft breeze stirred the trees, and carried the pungent breath of the purple Passion Flow er to the nostrils of Bartolo Gomez, lying in his hammock. Night life hummed softly on, broken only by the angry snarl of a tiger foiled in his hunt, or by the scream of some animal caught in the strong enveloping coils of the boa-constrictor. There was nothing to fear in this cool beautiful night, Bartolo tried to tell himself, but still he was stricken with a horrible fore- boding. One cry from him would waken the whole finca, and there, in his gent- ly swaying hammock, lay his brother peacefully sleeping. Indeed, of what was there to be afraid? His fear grew, however, with every little sound. His body was taut,, and he strained his eyes into the shadows about him. The pale moonlight resting on his face showed its ghastliness, the swarthy skin appearing almost white. His hands, holding the serapa covering him, shook, and perspiration stood out on his fore- head. It was the third night he had been unable to sleep: the third time this hor- rible fear had possessed him--a dread of something undefinable--some phantom of his mind. He put out his hand as tho to push the fear from him, and touched a small hard package. Ah! That was his goldeeHhis pesos. He was the richest hom- bre in the finca, why need he worry? Still the fear remained. It seemed to draw him to the pesosg it seemed to speak and curse him and his gold. His fingers closed convulsively on the sack. Again he lived over the actions that had brought him his pesos,-the ,dark wet night-a horse coming down the trail-f a leap and a gleam of something white and cruelva cry-the clattering hoofs of a frightened horse-silence-and then, his payment, his reward which now lay close to his heart. Bartolo closed his eyes and smiled. He lost his fear and fell asleep. It seemed but a second when he felt himself hurled from his hammock and found himself standing upright, staring into the unseeing eyes of that night rider. His hair was matted with blood, and his glassy eyes looked through Bartolo. Bartolo's mouth opened to scream his terror, but no sound came. He put out his hand, but where the man's pointing finger had been was only ashaft of pale moonlight. The man turned and walked through the grove, and, drawn bya power stronger than he, Bartolo followed. Piestro woke with a start to see the 22 figure of his brother walking down the moonlit path, his money clasped close to him. He called to him softly, but Bartolo did not heed. Slipping out of his hammock, wonderingly, he followed. Out of the grove floated the man, his dead eyes staring ahead, his gaping wound ever bleeding, his face white and lifeless. Behind him, mechanically walked Bartolo, frantically clutching his gold, and, closely following Bartolo, trod his brothter, Piestro, across corrals, through the pastures, and into the dark menacing forest. The air was damp. Each step along the path crushed some delicate flower whose aroma filled the night air. Here a snake, going on its sly hunting, glided across the path, and there, two large eyes gleamed menacingly from the darkness. On walked the three--on and on-- deeper and deeper into the dark scented gloom. Then ahead the moonlight streamed on the "Campo", a well known swamp and fever spot of the tropics. The man paused on the edge of its dark grass-crested mud flats, then float- ed on across it. Without hesitation, Bar- tulo followed. Piestro stopped abruptly on the edge and in sudden terror voice sink- dark near him, sank his tried to call to Bartolo, but his choked. Bartolo walked onward, ing deeper and deeper into the death, until at length he stopped the center, looked frantically about and, with a long terrified scream, slowly into the dark murky depths, arms upraised beseechingly towards that blood-covered figure hovering silently above. That was long ago, and to-day the Mexicans speak of it in awed tones, and Guadalupe, the old guide, is the only one who will lead you to the spot. After pro- mising many pesos, I persuaded the old native to take me there. The swamp is gone now, and in its place is a small clearing covered with the luxuriant growths of the tropics. In the center of this clearing, stands a stump strangely like a human figure bathed in the warm atmosphere of the south and covered with age-old moss. As I stood looking at the weird spot, Guadalupe leaned forward, and, crossing himself, whispered ina cracked, awe-stricken voice, f'That stump, Senor, see, it is the body of Bar- tolo, encased in its tomb of mud, and see, in his upheld arms, the sack of pesos." I looked more keenly and saw, clutched in the arm-like branches of this weird stump, an object, which, in the pale moonlight, glittered strangely like gold. The air was still. This was indeed a place of death, for even the Niyaca, the most poisonous of snakes, slipped silent- ly away from its deadly edge. As I looked, I could almost see the stump transform- ed into Bartolo, his hands raised beseech- ingly to heaven, his face distorted with fear. Silently I turned from this place, and, feeling strangely as though this queer tale were true, went back to the trail, Guadalupe cringing behind me. Catharine Plant '22, Uhr Sv. GD. SP. The U.S. Shipping Board freighter "Alaskan", plying between San Diego and Vancouver, British Columbia, was steaming out into the Pacific with a cargo of fruit on board for a merchant in Seattle. Captain Henderson, or "Old Man Henderson" as the crew called him, was standing just aft the foremast with the usual angry scowl on his scarred and homely face. He was feared by the entire crew and his law was "might makes right." John Prescott, the chief wireless operator, was just going to relieve the second operator when he had bumped into the captain as he was coming up the companionway. The captain had been unusually cross, and as Prescott hurried to his set, he again wondered over the conversation he had over-heard that morn ing. "We could run her onto Muscle Shoals," the mate had said. "Sh, not so loud, "the captain had exclaimed. " I just saw that wireless guy go down below, I'm afraid he'll spoil our fun if he gets suspicious." 23 But the mate had scoffed, while Prescott pressed his ear against a crack in the wall. "Pooh, never mind that fellow, he's perfectly harmless. Those wireless guys don't know anything, ex- cept sparks and dots and dashes. I'll take the wheel at ten or when it gets good and dark, and you have the boat ready. When you signal I'll lash the wheel and head her for the shoals. After that we'll strike out for land. It's only twenty miles east, and then we'll hit for South America or Alaska. Easy as fall- ing off a log, I call it." The captain had aquiesced, "Sure that'll be fine, I'm expecting foggy wea- ther in a few days and then we'll turn the trick. You see that the wireless is out of commission in case that Prescott fel- low should get wise to us." Prescott laughed to him self as he thot of it. "Going to sink the ship and then beat it with the money. Well, I'll see if I can't have a little fun out of this too. I wonder whose money they have on board. It must belong to the company. That old crook of a captain will get sal- vage off the Alaskan too. I'd like to send him up for this." He sat down in his chair and put the receivers on his head. The air was empty and after he had given his position to K.F.S., the Federal Telegraph Co's sta- tion in San Francisco, Prescott threw over his antenna switch for transmitting and called N.P.G., the station at Mare Island, and asked for the U.S.W.B. N. P.G. gave him the report and Prescott took it to the second mate, who had the watch at that hour. "I guess we are due for some foggy days," the mate replied to his query about the weather. "Yes and I bet something is going to happen," answered Prescott. Two days later, after slow progress, the "Alaskan" was off cape Mendocino and the barometer was falling. About eight o'clock that night Prescott gave his position to Radio N. P. W., Table Bluff, as 256 miles north of San Francisco. A dense fog was coming in from the west and soon the ship was enveloped in a grey mist. One could not see ten feet ahead. The mate called the captain and said, "Everything is ready to turn the trick tonight. " "All right," the captain said, "I'll get the money .and lower a boat and send the crew below, on some pretext, and you go and cut the wires so as to stop any messages Prescott might send out. In the meantime Prescott was at his set calling Table Bluff for radio compass hearings. As he signed off he noticed the antenna ammeter drop to 1 ampere, and finally his set went out of commis- sion. Generally the ammeter read 18 amperes with a 2 k.w. and Prescott won- dered what had happened. "Ah ha," he exclaimed, "I bet it's the mate trying to cut my lead in. I'd better go out and see. He stepped out side the door and looked at the antenna. The lead in was dangling in the air and he knew that the mate had done his trick. He stepped a- round the corner of the radio room where the lead in enters the wall through a large bushing insulator, and at the foot of the bridge steps he saw a man lying prone on his face clutching a pair of wire cutters. Prescott turned the body over and the outline to the third mate's face could be seen distinctly. What a sight! The electrical shock had turned the face purple and his hands were badly burned. Prescott tried to take the cutters from his grasp but the cold hand held them so tight that he could not move a finger. Leaning down, Prescott put his hand over the mate's heart. He did not feel a pulse or any sign of life. Suddenly steps were heard behind him, and Prescott saw the captain carrying a satchel. Quietly he slid out of sight. Hurreidly fixing the lead in, Prescott ran to the wireless room, and, throwing 24 over the antenna switch for transmitting started to send out a distress call. "Dit-- dit---dit---dah--dah--dah---dit--dit--dit---'' barked the quenched gap as Prescott cautiously and breathlessly formed the dots and dashes and sent this message: "U.S.S. Alaskan heading for mussel shoals. Captain and mate attempt to sink boat and escape with money on board. Help--hurry. " As he finished the message a sudden jar of the ship knocked Prescott off his feet. A sound of a ship's hull striking sand was heard. The ship shook from stern to stem, and he knew that the crash had split the bow in two. Frantically he sent out another S.O.S. "Alaskan hit Mussle Shoals and sink- ing fast. Bow under water and crew im- prisoned below. All life boats smashed." The ship was now sinking rapidly. Prescott ran to the port hole and saw that the water was covering the ship. He knew that immediate help was the only thing that could save anyone. Running back to his set, he heard the British Ship "Peebles," She was coming to their res- cue. He breathed a sigh of relief, and cz refully picking his way below, Prescott planned a way to free the imprisoned crew. As he reached the last step of the ccmpanionway, he came face to face with the captain. Suddenly the Alaskan gave a mighty shake. She rose up on her nose, and, with a last effort to right herself, she slid silently into the sea, making the innocent suffer for the guilty. When the English ship "Peebles" reached the spot in grey dawn an expanse of undisturbed sea greeted the captain's eyes. Somewhere there at the bottom lay the Alaskan and her crew. The real- ization that he had come to late surged thru the captain and he turned away from the bridge to go below. As he did so, a dark object, bobbing persistently at the ship's very side, attracted his notice. Quickly ordering the crew to investigate, he hurried to the lower deck and stood waiting by the rail. The object proved to be one of the Alaskan's victims, and as the sailors lifted the half-conscious man 25 to the deck they found, tied about his neck, a sack of money in which was the treasury record kept by the ship's com- pany. The name found in the wallet was that of John Prescott, chief operator of the U.S.S. Alaskan. Charles Vanoncini '23 lirinrnm lllathu I was sitting half asleep in a rocking chair, petting the Persian cat and trying to study my history. Her purring was so loud and different from that of other cats that I began to wonder. Suddenly the purring took on a new note and be- came more like a foreign language, then it changed into good American. This is what she said: "You say I am a cat. Well, Iam and also the Princess Hathu.You know that the Egyptians, thousands of years ago believed that when a person died his soul was transformed into the body of some animal." "I lived thousands of years ago in Egypt. My father's palace was near the delta of the Nile among tall palm trees. You have no idea of the splendor of the palaces built by large numbers of slaves taken captive in the wars waged by my famous father. Many times with him I have ridden on expeditions to discover unknown countries. The results of these expeditions were all carved on the walls of the temple. "As a child I was instructed in geometry and arithmetic. Iabominated both, but loved the music of the pipes and harp in which I was very excellent." "We had beautiful boats rowed by negro boatmen, andI was attended by negro women on my pleasure trips. On such occasions we often gathered the lo- tus flowers to decorate the palace and temple. "We had large glass manufacturing plants, and colored glass much better than can be done to-day. All the nations came to Egypt to get treasures of glass and brightly polished stones. "We had no paper like that which you have now, but used papyrus man- ufactured from a reed which grew in the marshes along the Nile. "There were three forms of writing: the hieroglyphics or picture writing, the hieratic, a simplified form used in man- uscriptsg and another form which was still more simple. "Our cloudless, brilliant skies at night sparkled with stars: hence many men studied the heavenly bodies and could tell by their movements the times of the annual overflow of the Nile. These men were the ones who divided the year into 365 days of twelve months. "You would like me to tell you about the embalming, I know, but you would weary of hearing about the long process. The wealthy people were preserved by costly aromatic and resinous substances and wrapped in bandages of linen. The face was sometimes gilded or covered with a golden mask. Since this would cost about 31,000 of your money, the poor could not afford it. Instead, they were salted and dried, then wrapped in coarse mats. "I was condemmed to death because I opposed the cruel oppression of my fa- ther and his brothers who burdened his poor subjects in building the immense monuments of stone which had to be transported for hundreds of miles. These pyramids were fitting tombs for our family, but my sympathies were with the poor laborers. "I was condemmed to die in spite of all my prayers to the Great Osiris and my soul entered the hody of a cat. My mummy rested in one of the great Pyr- amids which was ravaged by some sou- venir-hunting Americans who took me to a museum. I was hunting for this so that I could enter the mummy again, for my time has nearly expired." Just then my book fell to the flcor and I started up surprised to find I had ' 26 been asleep. Here after, my cat will be Princess llathu and I will treat her with all res- pect. The daintiest morsels will be hers and the softest cushions will be her bed. Kathleen Anderson '24 Uhr llnmunrr nf ei tbhnut. On my last tour through Spain I stopped at La Manska. The little town was in a turmoil. Every one whom you met hastened to ask if you had heard of the ghost which haunted the Alhambra. My interest got the better of me and I set out at once for the palace. Upon my arrivalI was met by an old Spanish lady who, with her husband and daughter, occupied the Alhambra. Others, she declared, were frightened away by the ghost which, whining and groaning, paraded every night through the rooms and halls. She told me that they had made up their minds to move, but one night the ghost had swooped upon them, and had declared that they would be haunted the rest of their days if they left the palace. Entering the Alhambra, I was intro- duced to the daughter, a beautiful Span- ish maid who captured my heart at once. She was not only most beautiful,but her eyes were very sad and there were traces of grief in every feature. Sorrow is not usually a becoming garment, but she wore it as a queen wears precious stones. My first night in the palace was terrible. The ghost rampaged wildly shrieking and moaning in a blood curdl- ing way. Itried to forget it and to fix my thoughts on the Spanish maid whose name was Jacinta. My admiration for her was unlimited and I thought it a shame for her to be in the palace where this mad thing was tearing about. The next day as I walked aboutl ran into an old servant and soon was hearing Jacintafs history. She had al- ways lived in the Alhambra and at the age of seventeen had fallenin love with a dashing young Spaniard, but, because of his poverty, her parents did not approve of the match and the lover, heart-broken had flung himself off a neighboring cliff, and it was rumored that he perished on the rocks below. The second nightl determined to speak to the ghost and find out what it was, but I was spared the task, for as I sat in the court of Lions, he noiselessly appeared, robed in white. I was filled with horror. Suddenly the robe fell from the spectre and to my amazement Ibeheld a handsome young man with flashing brown eyes. "Listen, " he said pressing a revolver against my ribs. "Do as I say. Open yonder door and you will find sme worn- an's clothes. Put them on and pretend that you are the daughter of the house while we slip away." As he finished speaking, .Iacinta came out wreathed in smiles. I said before that she was beautifulg now she was exquisite. She was clad in man's apparrel, and as I withdrew the two started towards their horses. As I left the room the parents, who had found out about the elopement ,came to meet me. Iquieted them and told them how happy J acinta was and that Wealth was'nt everthing. So effective were my words that they begged their daughter's forgiveness and welcomed the bridal pair home. I greeted them on their return and asked the man how he had escaped the fall from the cliff. He half smiled as he said, "I did not fall from the cliff but landed on a little projection half way down." I congratulated the two heartily and then went out in the twilight to muse my lonely heart. Margaret Pen '25 Uhr Glnming nf the Bmrrt QA Eegrnhb The Indian chief, a friend of my father's, looked first at me, then at the desert at our feet, and finally at the grey clouds in the West with here and there a banner of crimson among them. At the foot of the precipice on the top of which we had camped lay a desert stretch- ing for several miles in every direction. It was surrounded on all sides by moun- tains green with the coming of spring, but dull in contrast with the blazing sands. After looking at all this, he an- swered my question. "The history of the desert is long. Many years ago, in the time of my an- cestors, long before the coming of the white men, an event occured which changed these plains from beauty to desolation. "The men of the Swift Feet were war- ring on a not far distant tribe, people of the Red Horse. The Swift Feet were conquering, and on one day late in spring they ambushed all but several of the enemy's men. The few left quickly returned to the camp on the hill, and warned it of the coming of the foe. Then there was great distress, for the Swift Feet warriors were fast, and their hearts were cruel. "In the camp there was one dearly beloved by the Red Horse. It was Fire- brand, son of the chief who was too old to take active command. The son was vnly about fourteen years of age. Where- ever the people went, wherever the Ind- ians hunted, wherever there was merry making, Firebrand was always near. Although so young, his word was law, and he was loved by all. "Early in life came to him all that man covets, for he was loved by the Red Horse. Riches, power and love were his. 27 Every favor of life was shown him. But the men of the Swift Feet conquer- ed, the child chief was captured, and was to be burned at the stake. When it was time for the boy's death, an old wom- an came to the camp and pleaded for a hearing from the victorious chief, Black Eagle. Black -Eagle was eager for the oncoming feast which was to celebrate the victory, so he waited impatiently for the old woman to speak. "She told him that the Red Horse was displeased and did not wish that Firebrand should die. She stated fur- ther that Red Horse desired that the young chief should be given his freedom, and promised that in return the Swfit Feet should become rich and powerful. . "As Black Eagle listened his heart was angered within him. Who was the Red Horse, that he should so command him, chief of the Swift Feet? He ordered his men to take the woman to her abode and strode angrily towards the fire. "The squaw paused before leaving him. Lifting a scrawny arm towards the west, she pointed with a bony finger to the mounting clouds. 'Lookl Red Horse is angered. Now will come pover- ty and destruction to your tribe. Soon shall it lose all its power, and its fair do- mains shall wither. Thus decrees the Red Horse. ' "In the West the Red Horse, never before seen by the Swift Feet, thunder- ed swiftly across the grey clouds. His mane streamed out like fiery banners, his long tail was like a flame, and his massive shoulders were clearly outlined against the pale blue of the evening sky. Slowly the color faded, and where he had been was only a gray cloud, but the thundering of his feet could still be heard. The sun set, and darkness came, but an unrest was over the camp, and they did not go to sleep as usual. "In the night the hoof-beats were often heard, and sparks driven from his feet illuminated the sky. All night long he marshalled his forces. Often they rose to look for him, but he was never visible. 28 "In the middle of the night there was a low rumbling, sounding like a herd of not far-off horses running at full speed. The earth trembled, and all the country shook. Slowly the noise died, and again all was calm. "The next morning no river ran by the camp. The Red Horse had hidden the stream. But the rain came down like the waterfalls of small streams which cross a broad rock and fall in showers to the ground delow. Soon they were forced to leave the plains and retreat to the sides of the hills, for the plain was turned to, a broad lake. The green grass was cov- ered, and the buffalo and deer were driv- en to the mountain feeding grounds. "At length the water disappeared, and the green things sprang up. The tribe returned to the plains, and was happy. But soon fear came for there was no more rain, and day after day the green withered and died, and turned to a dull brown. The animals fled. Only we remained. Every day the sun grew hotter, and often at sunset was seen the Red Horse. Soon we were praying to the Red Horse for rain. The children were sickened by the heat, and fell as the leaves in autumn. All became feeble and wasted. "Soon the once beautiful plains were turned to a place of torture, the sands brought by the flood blazed in the heat, no person could cross the desert and liveg summer and winter the sun shone, and year by year our tribe dwindled. 4'It was ordained that Black Eagle should die. The scorching sun of the Red Horse did its work. It took life, bit by bit, from Black Eagle, as the fire had done from Firebrand. At the chief 's death there was great mourning. The Swift Feet would have left the plains,but their feet were no longer swift as of old, and they could not cross the mountains with the women and children. L'Their new chief sought to make peace with the Red Horse. Soon it made itsappearance in the evening less fre- quently and often were the hopes of the lndians kindled,only to die. Before. when- ever clouds had appeared, the Red Horse had come in the evening and command- ed them to vanish. But now, clouds roll- ed up unmolested by the Red Horse. With rain on every side, with flowers and grass appearing all around, vx i,h green shrubs growing on thence parched hills, the plains of the Swift Feet people alone remained unchanged. No drop of rain tuched the blistering sands, no winter came to them, although on the surrounding mountains the snow lay thick. The plains have been, since then, what they are now--a desert. "Slowly the Swift Feet grew in prosperity and size. Only occaisionally did the Red Horse show himself in the West to watch the desert. No longer did his hoof beats make the earth trem- ble. But the river did not return, and the desert remained. And thus did Red Horse remember and avenge the death of Firebrand, boy chief of the Swift Feet." Janet Goodwin 722. Emilight I sat alone in the twilight, When all was silent and still, And watched the last faint rays of light Slowly sink behind the hill. I struck a choral on my guitar, A melodious silv'ry strain, Borne on the whispering kreeze afar, 1 heard it echo again. And as I heard the silv'ry chord, And while niy thoughts swept on, It seemed a great rnan's deed and wcrl Whose greatness goes on and on. Lightly 1 touched the strings again, And now a Llaintive wail Rose to my li et'ning ears and then Was swept softly down the vale. "Too sad and longing," was my tk ought, Sol tried the strings again, This time the effort that I wrought Proved not to be in vain. It was a merry lilting tune Poured forth in tones so mill, Like a babbling joyous krook in June, Or a happy laughing child. I looked at the shining, twinkling stars, Laughing in my delight, And taking my beloved guitar, Stole out into the night. Constance Brett 'Z5. 29 what Glam mr En? Every year, men go to that country south of us, Mexico, to take to it that factor which we have found so necessary in our constructiong namely, Education. Many times we have been reminded of the lack of education and civilization in that country through its nearness to our borders and consequent effect on them, and its many revolutions stirring up pol- tical and commercial differences. Mexico is not a disappointment to the traveler, indeed, it is seldom repre- sented to be as beautiful as it is or as full of wonderful resources. It has been held back by the many revolutions stir- ring its people and by the upset condition in which they live. Mexico is a country which could be of great importance, and will be, as soon as education has prevailed. The fact that Mexico is un- educated shows in every part---its gov- ernment, its commerce, and its social life. Where uneducated people are found, revolutions and general unrest are bound to occur, hence, the solution seems to be to educate the people. Here, however, a problem confronts us. The Mexicans are not ready to be educated. They must be prepared for education. At the present time, their schools are al- most pitiful in their inferiority, and often the teachers do not know asmuch as the pupils. In the cities, such as Vera Cruz and Mexico City, the educational condi- tions are better, but in an ordinary Mex- ican village or town, they are poor in the extreme. The little town of Salto de Aqua, situated inland on the Tuleja river, is an example of the orinary village in Southern Mexico. Here, a few stucco buildings are gathered about the jail, which is a low rembling affair, also of stucco. The jail is on one side of the main street, with a small plaza beside it, and opposite it, is the one store where everything is kept, from sombreros to "cacao." This is the extent of the business and residence districts of Salto de Aqua. The main street, which is, by the way, the only street, is a mere path, straggling from the dense woods behind the build- ings to the water's edge. Some' towns boast of a church, but Salto de Aqua is not large enough for that luxury. Here, however, one may find a school, the only one within a radius of many miles. The classes are held under the shade of the palm and banana trees of the plaza, where the little barefoot girls and boys sit on benches, and read their lessons aloud, their voices mingling with the drowsy hum of bees, and the soft "lap, lap" of the river. The school is divided into two sections: the boy's and girl's divisions, with a man and women respect- ively for teachers. These teachers are often very ignorant, and Ihave known cases where the children have stopped attending school because they have learn- ed more rapidly than the teachers were able to teach them. Only the better class of Mexicans can attend these schools, for the ordinary peon is bound to his or her "finca" or plantation. Thus there are hundreds of children growing up who do not know what a book is. The elder generation is an example of the utter ignorance in which Mexico is living and still will be living until the right method to introduce education is found. They look with wonder on the for- eigners who travel through the country, and are utterly ignorant of all save their own small affairs, and are capable of lit- tle more. I can remember hearing my fa- ther, who was manager of a plantation there, discuss the situation. The Mex- ican's world is his master's law, his hut, and his work--picking bananas, curing rubber, or whatever it may be. He knows nothing else,and does not wish to know anything else. He listens with in- credulous wonder to stories of the out- side world and in most cases worships his master as would a faithful dog. The treachery of the Mexican is not inborn as many would believe, but arises mainly from his ignorance. The peon is a mix-- ture of the Spanish and Indian, but is hat- ed by Spaniards and Indians alike, and has been a subject of their tyranny for centuries. The hatred which has develop- ed through their subjection by foreign- er's often none too thotful for their wel- fare, finds an outlet only through treach- ery, which ignorance aids. 30 Not knowing what it is to be educat- ed, the Mexican has no desire to become so. He is like a little child, and when giv- en opportunities or honors, boasts over his fellow men as a child does over a toy wagon which his neighbors do not possess. Since the Mexican's life fills such a small sphere, small things mean much to him. The possession of a pink silk "rabosa" has often caused great dis- aster to a plantation family. I shall never forget just such an occurence which upset the finca on which I lived. I was a very little girl, but I remember the following incident clearly. Chrysanthia was the back bone of the village women. Whenever you saw her bright-colored dress flash'across the lane between the houses, you knew accord- ingly that trouble was coming. With dark laughing eyes, a wealth of glossy hair, and a merry laugh, she led the other members of the village into mischief, whether it was slyly stealing some goods or food from the store, or purloining an extra bit of "aqua dientefl the Mexican liquor. As I remember this particular oc- curence, it was on a beautiful drowsy aft- ernoon with crickets chirping lazily, and a gentle breeze making the day fairly cool. Ihad been playing with my dolls, and was startled to hear loud screams rending the quiet of the afternoon. Father and mother hurried to the door, where they met Chrysanthia and Felicianna, sobbing aloud and dripping wet. On demanding the cause for disturbance, peicemeal they told father the story. Felicianna had been washing clothes in the stream, and was not harming anyone, when Chr- ysanthia had swooped upon her, clutch- ing her by her long braid, and had fur- iously dragged her through the water. Here Chrysanthia in a flood of enraged tears declared vehemently that Felicianna had scoffed at her new pink silk rebosa. Such is the state of the peonls mind. The care of a plantation is tremendous, because not only must the manager look after the plantation. but also after the petty troubles which often mount to something critical. The problems are comical from one standpoint but from the other, they are most serious. My father believed that his men should be free to a certain extent, that is, that they should be allowed more privileges, and more education, so he tried out his theory by trusting the men with heavy responsibilities. This, he found, worked excellently. Then he decided to better their conditions and allowed them to pur- chase shoes. With this purchase, how- ever, came trouble. Seeing themselves clothed as the manager was clothed, they immediately felt equal to, and better than, the manager. They took matters into their own hands and began to rule in a high and mighty fashion. The re- sult was a riot which forced my father to use strenuous measures. The Mexicans are not ready for sudden elevation, and neither are their children, nor will their grand-children be much better fitted for it. Education must come slowly to Mexico, and the people must be taught to change their viewpoint of life. They must be able to look to the future, and come to the real- ization of the importance of progress.

On August 26, ameeting was called to make ar- rangements for the freshman reception. September 2 was the date agreed upon. Throughout the year meetings were call- ed in which much was accomplished. l,l.l...l..ii.i- Svnrk 211111 iiunkin Gllnh. The Sock and Buskin club, a dram- atic society of this school, first met on October 24,1919, under the name of the Dramatic Club, and was reorganized in September 1922, under its present name. The object of this club is to develop the dramatic ability of the school, and to present good dramatic art before the stu- dent body. The officers for the first half of the year were: President . . . Frank Davis. Vice President . Thomas Murphy. Secretary-Treasrer . Elmer Hunter. Three plays were given before the student body during this semester.

During the second semester little dramatic work was accomplished, due to athletic and operetta practices. .Q e L Jhminr Qllaum Svnphnmnrr Ullman Hrrnhmrn Gilann Svrhunl Nunez The doors of the A. U. H. S. opened again to the students on August 15, 1921 after the regular summer vacation. The total enrollment was 210, eighty-four freshmen being enrolled the first week. With such a great increase in the mem- bership of the student body the question of how to keep the interest of all in school activities came up. Everything possible was done to organize clubs and to encourage such organizations. Com- mittees from the several classes were appointed to suggest and carry on the work. School closed September 9, in honor of Admission Day. Wednesday, September 21, the first rally of the year was led by yell leader Davis to arouse spirit for the practice game of football with Eureka. Mr. Arthur Adler, an alumnus now attending the University of Oregon, was a visitor at the school, Friday, Septem- ber 23. ' A short rally was held Friday, Sep- tember 30. The girls of the A.U.H.S. conducted a dancing class in the gymnasium for several weeks during the fall season. The music was furnished by Messrs. Davis, McDonald, and Worthington. A few nights before the first foot- ball game of the year, the A. U. H. S. athletic field was the scene of a bonfire rally. We formed a serpentine and wend- ed our way through the streets of the town to the plaza. Here we gave a numb- er of yells and then adjourned. After a short vacation of one week for Teachers' Institute, school opened again on October 17. Everyone seemed glad to return. A rally was held October 21 for the games of football and girls' basketball to be played with Ferndale. 37 On October 24, the students of the A. U. H. S. were entertained by talks given by Mr. Webster, County Y. M. C. A. Secretary, and by Mr. Rimmer, Evange- list.

School closed for the Thanksgiving vacation, reopened on the following Monday, and continued in session until December 23, at which time it closed for the Christmas vacation. January 9 marked the begining of the spring semester. On Wednesday, January 11, Mr. Ham addressed the students on Pat- riotism. His talk was very much enjoyed. January 17, thereports for the first half year were issued and the students made many pleasant CD remarks about their cards. Clemens McClaskey and Ernest Henry of the biology class completed a balanced aquarium this year and have been busy keeping it in balanced order. The making of the balanced aquarium was the biological project of these two students for the year. , A representative of Wilsonis Athletic Supply Company displayed his wares to the students in the gymnasium on Feb- ruary 20. Washington's Birthday, February 22, was observed with a short program consisting of the singing of national and school anthems by the entire school, led by the singing class. Rallies were held February 21, and 24 for the Basketball games. February 23, the Junior girls gave a candy sale from whicha neat sum was made. School activities lagged during the last of February due to the slight ep- idemic of influenza which swept over the county. On March 3, another basketball rally was held. On March 20, Mr. Seely photograph- ed the four classes and also the football and girl's basketball teams. Some of the faculty members and students attended the musical program given at the Humboldt State Teachers' College on March 21. A March 24, wasa busy day for the students because the operetta entitled t'Polished Pebbles" was given on that date. April 6, Miss Woodward spoke to the girls on health. Mr. Ham also gave a talk on the same subject to the boys of the physical training classes. The Monthly "Advance", edited by the freshmen, was read at the regular meeting of the students, April 7. Yell leader Berniece Stokes led the rally of April 13, for the baseball games with Ferndale. School closed on April 14, for the Easter vacation. The annual event known as "Senior Freak Day" Was held April 17. the cos- tumes worn by the Seniors were various and funny. 38 A motion picture entitled "The Last Days of Pompeiih was shown on the screen in the Assembly Hall on April 28. Mr. Rieben and Harold Thornton operat- ed the machine. This picture was enjoyed by visitors, faculty, and students. Alrally was held April 28, for the Fortuna baseball games. The try-outs for the declamatory con- test were held Monday morning, May 1. In the afternoon school was dismissed in order that all might participate in the clerks, holiday. More team pictures were taken on May 2. The Seniors received their com- mencement announcements and the pupils of the graduation class were very much excited over the event. . Senior Day was celebrated May 5. The members of the class were kept busy garding their colors from members of the other classes. The oratorical and declamatory con- test was held on Friday afternoon, May 12, 1922, in the auditorium of the Hum- boldt State Teachersi College. The speak- ers were in the following order: Ora- tion, Gratitude of the N ation--Lee Baird of Fortunag Oration, Imperialism--Joe Bonacina of Arcatag Oration,The Orient of California--Helen Foster of Mendocino City, Oration, Crossing the Bar--Howard Ryan of Eureka, Oration, The Conqueror Ellen Canty of Ferndale, Declamation, "The, Liberty Bellw, George Lippard-- Walter Powell of Eureka: Declamation, "A Few Bars in the Key of G", Osborne--Q Grace Getty of Ferndaleg Declamation, "Our Guide in Genoa and Rome, '1 Twain-- Ellis Armstrong of Fortunag Declama- tion, "Saved by Fire Drill Discipline,'f Daskam--Janet Goodwin, of Arcata. Miss Helen Foster of Mendocino City won first place in the oratorical contest, while Miss Grace Getty of Ferndale tied with Mr. Ellis Armstrong of Fortuna for Q 3 X 39 X C 40 first place in declamation. Mr Howard Ryan and Walter Powell of Eureka were awarded second place in oration and dec- lamation respectively. In the evening, the guests at the College were offered a rare treat in the musical contest. The orchestras of Arcata Fortuna, and Eureka each furnished numbers on the programs. Fortuna was awarded first place and Eureka second. Previous to the contest Arcata had with- drawn as a contestant. Vocal solos by representativeS of each of the four high schools comprised the second num ber on the program. First place was attained by Frank Davis of Arcata, and second by Clyde Biord of Eureka. The third number on the program consisted of in- strumental solos. Leslie Clausen of Fern- dale was awarded first place and Grace Davidson of Arcata second. The last number was ensemble singing. Eureka qualified first and Ferndale second. Not a quarter passed in this school year without some improvements being made in the surroundings of the school or in the buildings. On the borders of the gravel walks which lead to the main building flowers were planted. The ath- letic field also underwent a number of changes. Diamond and track were pre- pared for their activities. while the ten- nis courts were coated with a quantity of asphalt and were improved in other re- spects, The most important interior im- provement was perhaps the two-circuit- program clock purchased soon after the opening of the second semester and in- stalled in the office. It has made possible the accurrate ringing of all the warning bells in the main buildings as well as in the shop and gymnasium. Other interior improvements were black boards and a bulletin board for the biology room, benches and a stove for the shower room, and the fitting up of a room for the mechanical drawing students. ,..i....i...t Glnmwvrrial Numa The Commercial Department which has given splendid aid to school activit- ies since its first establishment in the school has this year been a big help. The monthly Advances edited by the classes were at first mimeographed and later printed when we purchased our press. All tickets, programs, etc. have been put out by the commercial department. The number of students enrolled in the commercial classes, which include typing, bookkeeping, shorthand, and commercial arithmetic, was large. A con- siderable number was also enrolled in the night school commercial classes. The work accomplished by the stu- dents was very commendable and many were awarded typing certificates and bronze medals. The following are the names of students who have been a- warded Underwood Typing Certificates for trying 30 or more words per minute: Ruth Howell, Wallace Hemphill, Al- exander McMillan, Clara Parton, Lester Spellenberg, Carl Miller, Mary Chaffey, Lorraine Davidson, Helen Bjornsen, . 41 Ethel Crain, Lillian Olsen, William Hale, Rudolph Larson, Michael Pontoni, Clif- ford Berry, Leslie Stromberg, Frank Acorn, Harold Sundquist, and Andrew Smith.

Soon after the opening of the season, our football captain, Alex Skee, left Arcata, and Cecil Ripley took his place for the re- mainder of the season. Much enthusi- asm was shown for football and many tried out for the team. After several weeks of practice in kick- ing, forward passing, receiving passes, "spilling,H tackling, and various other football tactics, Arcata met the Eureka High School in a practice game which was won by the latter, 6 to 0. Every boy who was out for football was used in this game. The opening game of the interscho- lastic schedule was played with Fortuna on October 1. The Fortunans scored heavily early in the game, while the Ar- catans scored in the last few minutes of play. The lone touch down was secured only after a series of line plunges in the last quarter. The second game on October 8, was on the home field with the "Red and Green" eleven of the Eureka High School. Arcata played one of the best games of the year and won by a 9 to 0 score. In this game the Arcata backfield men, with the staunch support of the line, pushed through the Eurekans like asteam engine through a paper wall. The first three points were made in an early part of the game, as a result of a well placed kick followed later with a touchdown. The score was 9 to 0. The following Saturday, October 22, Arcata met with defeat at the hands of the Ferndale High School eleven at Fern- dale. The game was well played by both teams. Ferndale gained ground easily with end runs in this fight. Arcata only scored once, getting 7 points. The final score was: Ferndale, 13, Arcata, 7. 46 The Fortuna team invaded the Arca- ta territory on Saturday, October 29, and clashed for honors with our boys. Both teams scored twice and the result was a tie. The game was full of thrilling and exciting moments, and both teams fairly ripped up the turf in an effort to gain ground. The final score was 13 to 13. The A. U. H. S. football heroes downed the Ferndale aggregation who came to Arcata on November 5 with hopes of repeating the performance of the game at Ferndale, October 22. The victory for Arcata was won by one point. Both teams secured two touch- downs, but Ferndale was unable to convert, consequently the victory went to the home team. The score was 13 to 12 in favor of Arcata. The last game of the season was played with the Eureka eleven at Eureka, Saturday November 12. The Eurekans were eager to retrieve the defeat that they suffered from our boys on the home grounds. The Arcata line was not able to withstand the consistent attacks of the "Red and Greenv, and the 'home team lost the game, a 22 to O score. This game gave the county championship and also the football cup which had been held by Arcata to Eureka. With the closing of the schedule, the captain for the following fall was elect- ed, Charles Vanoncini receiving the po- sition. The standing of the teams was as follows: Eureka, Championsg Arcata and Fortuna, tied for second place, Ferndale, ' 'Celler Champions. H The A. U. H. S. line-up for the sea- son was: SkeefCapt.D, full back Sechler, tackle and full back Brundin, right half Voiles, left half Ripley, fCapt.J quarter back Vanoncini, right end Hemphill, left end McDonald, right tackle Gehrig, left tackle Dixon, center Getchel, center Lundberg, right guard Spinas, left guard Subs. --Graham, McMillan, and Stevens. GIRLS' BASKETBALL. The girls of ourschool, with renew- ed energy and pep, again attemped to put a fast team into the field this year. Under Coach Dunton and Captain Ber- niece Stokes a Hniftyl' team was picked from the girls who had tried out for the squad, but unfortunately the teams of the other high schools were superior. The girls suffered the first defeat of the year at Fortuna on October 1, by a score of 9 to 2. The game was interest- ing to the Fortuna fans, but few realized that the Arcata girls had failed to provide themselves with step-ladders in order to out play the tall Fortuna girls' team. More ill-luck was carried by the "Black and Gold" team when the Eureka ball tossers presented them with another defeat on October 8, on the local court. While the Arcatans caged the ball well, the Eureka girls, aided by good guarding, succeeded in keeping in the lead. The final score was: Eureka, 42, Arcata, 10. The Arcata team made a much better stand against the Ferndale team, on the Ferndale court, Saturday, October 22. Ferndale won the game, but our High's team was on its toes throughout all four quarters. The score was much more evenly divided than those of the previous games. Ferndale 293 Arcata 16. The Arcata squad added another defeat to its string when the Fortuna girls, after two quarters of good team- work by both squads, took the game by an 18 to 15 score. This game was on our local court, October 29. 47 Arcata won her only game of girls, basket-ball on November 5 from Fern- dale. Arcata 293 Ferndale 16. Good team work was the main factor in this tussle and the one most important in winning the game. The following week. November 12, The home team journeyed to the county seat long enough to enable Eureka to score a sufficient number of points to win the game. The score was 33 to 3 in favor of the Eureka High School team. The Eureka High School won the championship, with Fortuna second, Ferndale third, and Arcata last. The Arcata High School Girls' basket- ball team was composed of the following: Forwards --Alexia Devlin, Edna Minaker and Margaret Thompson, Centers-Jean Brett, Gladys Rose, and Janet Goodwin, GuardsYBerniece Stokes fCaptD, Pearl Brett, and Ruth Howell, Subs.HCath- erine Armstrong, Dymae Baldwin, Sarah Christie, and Loleta Ford. BOYS' BASKETBALL The prospects for a championship seemed very poor for the unlimited team and good for the limited. The unlimited squad had only one player left from the previous year's championship team, namely, Ripley, who played guard. Around Ripley and Vanoncini, who was the 120-pound captain last year and the unlimited captain this year, Coach Rieben built a strong, fast team. The limited team, picked from boys having fifty-eight or less exponents, in accordance to the Decathelon Classificat- ion of weight, age, year in school, etc., consisted of players of the urevious year's squad. Leslie Stromberg, who played guard the year before, was captain of this yearls team. Mr. Ham coached the limited team again this year. FOOTBALL TEAM GIRLS' BASKETBALL 48 Before the first games, the teams, unlimited and limited, had preliminary games with various aggregations of the vicinity, such as the Humboldt State Teachers' College teams, the Arcata Fire- man squads etc. Several games in which the honors were divided were also played between the two squads of the school. The games between the High School teams and the Firemen usually resulted in victories for the latter. The High School unlimited also suffered defeat at the hands of the Humboldt State Teachers' College regulars. The limited squad gave the "Teachersl' second team, a number of defeats, however. The opening games of the interscho- lastic basketball schedule were played away from home. Arcata wentto Fortuna on Friday, January 20, and succeeded in dividing the honors. The limited won a very close and hard fought game from the Fortuna lightweights by a score of 13 to 12. The unlimited eicnt went to Fortuna in the same manner that the Arcata players took the game from the Fortuna limited squad. The score was 10 to 7 in favor of Fortuna. On January 27, Arcata handed the Ferndale teams adouble, decisive defeat oi. the local court. The limited boys out- played their opponents throughout. The score of this game was 25 to 8 in favor of Arcata. The unlimited game resulted in a better showing for the Ferndale boys, but the Arcatans succeeded in keeping the lead. The final score was 23 to 14. Up to February 4, the Arcata light- weights had not lost a game, but on this date they were defeated by a close score of 10 to 8, by the Eureka High School quintet. The unlimited, in spite of all handie caps, defeated Eurekals fast unlimited in one of the closest and hardest fought games of the year, by a score of 16 to 15. 49 The result of these two contests were of much surprise to the fans, for everyone expected the lightweights to de- feat the Eureakans, and the Eureka un- limited five to win from the Arcata "heavies" with ease. The game starting the second half of the season was played on February 18, Arcata going to Ferndale and annexing two easy victories from the somewhat discouraged "cellar champions!" The lim- ited score was 13 to 3, the unlimited score, 17 to 2. H Perhaps the two most interesting games of the year were reserved for the home town fans when the Arcata teams played the Eureka squads on February 25, before a good crowd of rooters. The Arcata lightweight five easily defeated their opponents by a 20 to 11 score. The greater interest was centered on the game between the two unlimited teams, however, because, the outcome practically decided the county basketball championship. The home team lost this game to the Eureka tossers, after four quarters of hard playing. The score was Eureka 27 3 Arcata 14. The Fortuna games, which ended the season, were played at Arcata on Friday March 3. The limited team of the A. U. H. S. annexed an easy victory, outplay- ing the visitors in every stage of the game. The score read: Arcata 25, For- tuna 6. This victory gave our boys the county limited basketball championship. The Arcata unlimited repeated the per- formance of the "midgets" and won by a score of 28 to 2, giving A.U.H.S. second place in basketball. The line-ups for the year were as follows: Arcata Limited-Mr. Ham, coach. Stromberg tcapt.l, Center. Nicholson and Ray, Forwards. Green and Feurwerker, Guards. Pittman, Miller, Berry, Spellenberg, and Todd, Substitutes. Arcata Unlimited-Mr. Rieben, coach.

SOCCER Although a new game in this coun- ty, soccer ball, which is somewhat relat- ed to football in the manner of line up and number of men needed, aroused the interest of followers of athletlics this year. This game was treated asaminor sport and was not included under the regular interscholastic athletic activities. It was introduced in Arcata by Mr. A. Ham of our high school faculty and was readily taken up by the physical educa- tion department of the Humboldt State Terchers' College. The Eureka High School and Junior College also took up soccer as a minor sport. Afairly fast aggregation of eleven men was picked from the Arcata High School physical training squad. A num- ber of games were played with the Humboldt State Teachers' College, Eu- reka High School, and the Eureka Jun- ior College. Later in the year a brief schedule was drawn up and a twelve inch loving cup was presented to the team which won the championship. The Eureka High team won the cup, after defeating the home team at Eureka, on February 21, by a score. of 4 to 1. 51 TENNIS Tennis formed one of the chief ath- letic attractions for the students this year. Many students of upper and lower classes tried out for the tennis team and Captain Armstrong and Coach Ham had no trouble in picking a good team. The annual tennis tournament was held at Eureka on May 20. The following schools were represented: Eureka, Arca- ta, Ferndale, and Fortuna. Eureka won the county title, winning practically all of the matches which were often very interesting. The Arcata members played in good style throughout. The Arcata lineup for the 1922 sea- son was as follows: Boys? Singles-Francis Furber. Boys, Doubles--Albert Lima and Francis Furber. Mixed Doubles---Catharine Plant and Charles Vanoncini. Girls' Singes-HCatherine Armstrong. Girls' Doubles-Catherine Armstrong and Janet Goodwin. BOYS' BASEBALL The championship team of 1921, which was composed largely of senior boys, was greatly weakened at their graduation, but it was hoped that another winning team would be put out this year. After a number of weeks spent in train- ing, Coach Rieben and captain Francis Furber selected a good team from the large number of boys that were trying out for positions. The first game was to have been played with Fortuna at Arcata on April 1, but it was postponed. "The Black and Gold" tossers played the Humboldt State Teachers, College team on that day and won the tussle in a 10 inning game by the score of 10 to 9. The Arcata High ball players start- ed out at a whirlwind gait in the early stage of the game against Eureka, April 8. The "Red and Green" players SOCCER TEAM TENNIS TEAM 52 letanumber of runs go through, but took the game after a strong rally in a late period. The score vias, Eureka 12. Arcata 11. Arcata dropped back another step in the race for county championship vvlzer Ferndale vlon the game played on our grounds, by the score of 15 to 3. The "Black and Goldi' team was determined to viin the game from For- tuna, played in that city. The contrary happened again, for Arcata lost by a score of 11 to 4. incidentally the A.U.H. S. suuad was dropped from the race for the pennant. Our boys went to Ferndale on Sat- urday, April 29, and won the game by a score of 10 to 5. The feature of the game was Francis fDutchD Green's home run as a result of losing the ball in a gopher hole. However, this victory en- couraged our boys to greater possibilities. On May 8, Arcata defeated the old rival, Eureka, in the latter's territory, by a score of 9 to 4. The line-up for the A. U. H. S. Boysl Baseball team of the 1922 season was as follows: Furber fcapt.D s. s. Green p. Brundin c. Moranda 1. b. Ripley 2. b. P. Worthington 3. b. Vanoncini l. f. Hemphill c. f. Stromberg r. f. Utility: Acorn pg Bittenccurt cg Lester Spellenberg 2nd base: A. McMillan 3rd base. , . -. GIRLS' BASEBALL Girls, baseball held the highest place in girls, athletics this year as it did in the previous year. The prospects for a good team were very favorable due to the large number of girls who tried out for 53 various positions. Miss Dunton, with the assistance of Captain Catherine Arm- strong, coached the team. The games were run on the same schedule as boys' baseball. The Fortuna game, which was to have opened the interscholastic baseball series on April 1, was postponed, so the first game of the season was played with Eureka, April 8, on the home ground. This game was interesting from start to finish, in spite of the fact that the Eureka girls won by a score of 14 to 7. On April 15, the A. U. H. S. Girls' Baseball Team administered an over- whelming defeat to the Ferndale girls. The Ferndale squad could not stand up to the heavy hitting indulged in by our girls, and retired early in the fifth inn- ing, forfeiting to Arcata. The score was 26 to 4. Another victory was chalked up for the home girls when they defeated the Fortuna "tossers" at Fortuna on April 22. The score of 8 to7 indicates the closeness of the game which was hotly contested. The following Saturday, April 29, Ferndale, went down to defeat before our girls, with ascore of 15 to 4. An accident to two of the Ferndale players interupted the game, but after it was as- certained that neither injury was serious, the game was concluded after the boys, match. The second defeat of the year receiv- ed by the "Black and Gold" players was again at the hands of the old rival, Eu- reka. The game was played at the coun- ty seat and won by Eureka with the score of 11 to 1. This game practically gave the championship for girls' baseball to Eureka. The last game of the year which was to have been played with Fortuna was forfeited to Arcata. The standing of the schools in the race for the championship was as follows: Eureka, first placeg Ar- cata, secondg Fortuna, thirdg Ferndale, fourth. The following girls represented the A. U.

It had been fifteen years since the track cup was first awarded to the winner of the high school contest and in that time Arcata High School had always made futile attempts to win the prize. This year, howeverit was different. Each track man was in the pink of condition and each determined to do his best to win. They did win a competition which will long be remembered in this part of the state. The following schools entered men: Arcata, Eureka, Ferndale, Fortuna, Ukiah, Mendocino City, and Covelo. The field events were held on the Humboldt State Teachers' College Athlet- ic field, from ten o'clock until noon. Then a picnic-lunch was served on the College grounds. The meet continued in the afternoon at the Arcata High School track before crowded bleachers and before many athletic enthusiasts who followed the athletes about the field. Not until the finish of the relay race was Arcata assured of the day's victory. The score was: Arcata 58, Eureka 52, Ukiah 30, Ferndale 20, Fortuna 17, Cov- elo 1. Frank Davis proved to be an un- usual star in this meet. He led all the individual contestants in the number of points gained, scoring 20 1-4. As a result he was awarded a silver medal by the 55 Humboldt State Teachers' College. Other point winners for Arcata were Ripley with 11 1-4 paints, Bittencurt with 7 1-4 and Nicholson with 7. McGrath of Eureka broke four County records and was the individual star for that school. Those who officiated at the meet were: Starter, Rodenberger of Fortuna, Judges, Lloyd Webster of Eureka, Sid- ney Nielsen of Ferndale, Referee, A. G. Sly of Arcata: Clerk, R. H. Jenkins of Arcata. These officials acted in a very commendable and efficient manner. The following composed the A. U. H.

INTERCLASS ATHLETICS. Formerly it had been the custom of the school to carry on interclass athletic activities by challenges made to one class by another. This year, however, it was found advisable to appoint a committee to carry on the interclass contests. The work of the committee was to draw up schedules for the games desired and to determine the standings of the classes in interclass athletics during the year. The committee, consisting of a boy and a girl representative from' each class, acted throughout the term. Through the work of this committee a silver loving cup was procured as a trophy and was given to the class having won the highest per- centage of interclass contests. Miss Dun- ton and Mr. Ham acted as committee advisors, while Joe Bonacina was chair- 57 man. The rest of the committee was composed of the following: Seniors-- Dorothy Hill, Roy Sorensong Juniors-- Gladys Rose, Joe Bonacinag Sophomores-- Alexia Devlin, Leslie Strombergg Fresh- men--Jean Brett, Thomas Murphy. A The games were played according to the schedules drawn up by the Interclass Athletic Committee. The junior boys won the basket ball championship after ab- ministering two defeats, one to the "frosh7' and the other to the Seniors, in a three game series. The Seniors, who had previously defeated the Sophomores, achieved second place. The sturdy little"frosh" girls com- pletely ran away with the girls' inter- class baseball series by defeating every class. The juniors easily won second honors. The junior boy's nine was expected to win the baseball series, but the soph- omore hstickersw bewildered all the other classes by handing them a severe defeat. The juniors ranked a close second. The interclass tract meet which was held two weeks before the annual inter- scholastic meet served as a tryout for our team. Much enthusiam was shown for this interclass event, and each class was well represented with track men. The result was a championship for the sophomores, and placed them in the lead for the interclass cup. The junior class ranked a close second. Those who placed in the interclass events were chosen to represent the school in the big meet of May 13th. Interclass activities for the girls began with girls' basketball. The seniors came out as champions, while the fresh- men girls took second place. if l 0.
