The first interscholastic athletic
event of the year was football instead of
track as in previous years. 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
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.
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-
