Aihlriim FOOTBALL 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 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

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.
