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.

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.
