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.
