first place in declamation. Mr Howard
Ryan and Walter Powell of Eureka were
awarded second place in oration and dec-
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

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

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.
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

By his dimples
By her brillant ideas
By her blushes
