AND ALL ENDS WELL Here, landlubhers, is'a tale which you may read and gloat over, and it proves that even the saltiest sailor can be seasick. The tale which I am about to unfold relates what happened to the cap- tain and crew of the HS. S. Gallopin' Porpoisen, a beautiful two-masted trading schooner which moved with the grace and speed of a gull. She was headed for Tahaiti with pearls, and negro boys for slaves from the Solomon Islands. The day was clear and the sea was oily and there were no waves-- only dead swells. It was the calm before the storm and the crew knew it. The enchanting tropical night crept slowly upon them, but it was not destined to so remain. The wind increased. and prepared for it. In an hour the sea was over the deck carrying all that was unlashed boysn were frightened almost to death. They of the sea had been loosed. Old Joe Johnson, forty years, declared, UWell, I'll be a slit ain't the gran'daddy of all the hurricanes I Everyone knew what was coming an inferno. The waves washed with them. The poor Unigger thought surely all the demons who had followed the sea for eyed son-of-a-seacock if this ever seen since I been to sea It's almost enough to make me seasick.U . s The first dog-watch turned in and in the second watch, the captain himself said, HI'm doggoned if I don't feel sort o' like feeding the fishes myself.n Joe was at the wheel when a giant wave struck him,.caus- ing him to cling to the wheel. UDoggone that waveln he ejaculatedg After quite awhile he muttered to himself, Uwhatls wrong with me? Surely I'm not getting seasickln In a little while he did not even bother to look at the compass. He was feeling so had he did not care if he navigated the p ship to HDavy Jones' Lockern. Suddenly the ship was shaken violently, and with a scraping sound, was fast aground. When daylight came they surveyed the damage and there was a great hole stove in the side. They had to fix it quickly for it was not so fun- ny being aground in the Solomon Islands amongst the headhuntersr They soon were in the hold getting any lumber they could fiyd above decks ready for use. Around midday they heard wild shouts and perceived a large number of savages. They immediately hauled forth one of the negroes to interpret I for them. They finally found through their interpreter that if they would release the negroes they would not be molested so long as,they continued to stay there to repair the ravages of the storm. , In three days they had fixed their boat and were ready to leave the island without the negroes who, as it turned out, were members of that bribe of savages. They still had their boat and their heads and that was all that was necessary, was it not? They reached their destination with- out mishap. As far as is known old Joe Johnson, who was the cause of it all, never was seasick again: and so ends my yarng and it ends well--as all good yarns are supposed to. Marie Vidolin L9y' I I

it. We drifted and drifted until we came toward Fort Ross. We were all soaked to the skin and the wind was cold. Luckily, we washed up on some rocks where people were getting abalones. We jumped out of the boat and were wading through the water when a great big octopus slowly came from between some big rocks on the beach. He reached for us. We were scared stiff. My uncle quickly pulled out his gag-hook from its case on his side, and drove it into the creature. All its arms grabbed the hook. It must have hurt it badly: the water all a- round us was black with the ink this eight-foot octopus had squirted out to protect itself. - It soon died, however, and some fishermen dragged it to the shore and probably later cooked and ate it. We dried by a huge fire of drift wood and then were taken to the ferry, sorry we lost our boat, but glad we were safe. Alfred Schmidt L9zn A TRIP TO LAKE TAHOE On leaving the Eastbay district one comes to the Carquinez Bridge where, on crossing, you find yourself in another county. From there to Sacramento the road is level and you see nothing of particular interest. After leaving Sacramento the roads begin to get irregular, first be- ing level starts to mit. You following some high and then hilly. On the far side of Auburn the country really become mountainous. Soon you stop climbing and are at the sumf can see the snowsheds stretching for miles, winding and twisting the railroad track: at intervals you catch a glimpse of snow on peak and also see a break in the showsheds, Looking ahead, and far down, you can see the glistening waters of the historical Donner Lake. It is a good sized body of water composed of pure mountain water flowing from the mountains. From there on you see dense forests of trees and in places you see small lakes dotting the landscape. When you reach Truckee you see a small mountain town where most of the tourists stop and the divisional headquarters of the railroad are lo- cated. A few miles out of Truckee you come to Lake Tahoe. The pure blue waters stretch for miles and it takes a keen eye to see from end to end, The water is cold, clear, and sparkling, coming from the swift flowing streams of the high Sierras. Every once in a while you see privately owned wharfs at some beautiful site and perhaps a launch or rowboat rock- ing to and fro at its moorings. From Lake Tahoe it is but a short ride to Reno. On crossing the state line you see the office of the inspector who examines all cars come ing to the state, it being against the law to bring fruit or vegetables inf to California from other states. All persons who see Lake Tahoe find it something to remember, it be- ing such a beautiful and inspiring sight. - Alvin Quittman L9y'

Again we meet forgotten friends Last seen in Memory's Hall, Once more we greet our teachers, The school-bell seems to call. We read the jokes and stories, Then the autographs are last. A mist is gathering in our eyes, As we live again the past. And when we count our treasures, And hold them each apart, I'm sure old Wizards will become The closest to our hearts.
