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.
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 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.
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
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
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
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.
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.
