As a class they are gone, forever. Each and everyone of them is striving to fill the place in this universe designed for him, as he did in high school life. The class was small in numbers, but they took an active part in our school life. Among them were our former baseball, football and basketball b 7 captains and other energetic members of the teams. They took with them a number of point-winning football players. The debating trio lost one of its most valuable members. Dramatic circles suffered heavily. In all phases of school life their absence is felt. We can truthfully say we miss them-each and every one. We all must leave to pass on to higher institutions. XVe all must bid fare- well to our high school days. Let us follow the example of this small class and let us hope that when we pass through the portals of Eureka High School that we may leave as lasting and favorable impression as did the Midwinter Class of 1916.

They leave a void that is ver difficult to fill, that, in fact, can never be sli y . filled. When the midsummer class of 1917 goes out, it takes a great number of students who have been prominent in all the activities of the schoolg athletics, debating, dramatics. Four of the members of our last tennis team, which won the championship of the county, belonged to the Senior class. Two of the strongest members of our debating team leave with this class. The leading roles of our last play, said to have been the most successful ever produced by the high school, were taken by members of this class. VVe were enabled to win the football and baseball championship of the county with the help of members of this class who have now played their last game for old E. H. S. But, while we will surely miss these friends of ours in our school life, and believe that they will miss us and the E H. S., they have learned to love so Well, we wish them all manner of success in the bigger, wider life that opens out for them. The ability that they have shown here in school will surely make itself felt in the outside world. We know that they will do things, and big things, in the world as they have done them in school,-fairly, squarely, and wellg and our best wishes go with them.

' - 55, ', HE "Light ?" Oh yes, there is a story connected with it-a tragedy l with poor llrant taking the leading part and John Paston substi- ,my tuting in the role of Fate. ffcilk john Paston was old and eccentric when he ordered the im- mfa . mense flaring globe suspended over the great Paston Building. Most of the inhabitants of the Big City of the Valley thought so when they smiled up at the powerful arc, whose tremendous reflectors cast a trail of light far out over the City and into the silent country night. Some people took pains to say so, at every opportunity, for months after its con- struction. But in spite of what people thought or said, the "Light" still watched thru each night, and old Paston, further to show his scorn of public opinion, included an entire clause in his will which provided that after his death his great eecentricity should live on. The citizens, finding that they were doomed to sleep indefinitely under its bright eye, gradually composed themselves to their fate. Perhaps, too, as the years went on the "Light" became an indirect worker of philanthropy. The simple lonely folk, scattered in still farm-houses for miles and miles about the Valley City, looked for it during the dreary evening and absorbed from its rays a small but comfortable bit of companionship. Even the rough sheep-men. far up the mountains to the south, learned on clear nights, to single it out from among the low stars and to call it the "Light" So John Paston's "Light" shone on, and the sons and daughters of the City slept under it, and those without the pale yearned toward it, thru many years. VVhich was all as it should be. lint Fate's trick-box has numerous tricks-and thereon hangs the tale,-- the tragedy to be more exact. All of that blue spring morning the powerful twelve cylinder automobile had labored up the steep mountain ascent. And when finally with rytlunic pants it nosed its way over the last hard climb and began to purr along the level white road, which wound into the heart of the ranch-land on the mountain's top, the exhausted chauffeur softly swore a little oath of relief, and in the tonneau one of the two young men-the red-headed one-threw away a good half of his last cigar and stretched himself lazily. The other maintained a sightless stare ahead. Encased in blankets and fur-lined coat, his face alone was distinguishable. lt was grayishly white. Around its eyes hung the dark shadows of weeks of pain. It was a face which had died. The sun was almost directly overhead when the big car stopped before a small, dusty ranch-house near the road. A narrow and low porch ran the full THESEQUOIA 29 length of the front. On the porch a bearded man in blue jeans looked a moment and then came leisurely down the steps and toward the automobile. The chauffeur opened the door of the tonneau, and the red-headed young man leaped actively out. He met the big rancher in blue jeans with a warmly out-stretched hand. "My name's Spurryf' he began. "And you're the man 1've been corre- sponding with, aren't you ?" The other smiled. 'Tm Al Furst," he agreed. "Good! Now, Furst"-and young Mr. Spurry drew his new acquaint- ance out of earshot of the automobile. "Now Furst, you know what I'm here for if it if Your man's in the automobile there X bk 't ek. Remember he's just recovering from a complete break-down. He's discouraged. He thinks of nothing but his lost fortune. All he needs is fresh air and simple life-and- and-hope. Yes, above all, hope, Furst, hope!" "Well," said Furst stroking his iron-grey beard thoughtfully. "That's a pretty big contract. But if these here mountains of Gawd almighty's can't fill it, I reckon it can't be done!" "They'll turn the trick! You bet, they will!" Spurry broke in. "Now come and shake hands with Mr. Stanton Brant, your charge for the next month l" So Stanton Brant was introduced to the mountains, and strangely enough, bit by bit, began to live again. His eyes began to liven. His face took on some slight degree of animation. New blood flowed thru his entire body. After the first week, he beganeto grow restless. In a few days, blankets and cushioned chair were deserted. Brant took feeble steps about the house and porch. He uttered occasional connected sentences. He even smiled once, during that first week, at one of Furst's droll jokes. Altogether it was a weird sight, almost like beholding a stiffened corpse gradually take a new lease on life. But Furst watched the operation with consideration. It was only a matter of a few days before he found himself taking a human, and then, a fatherly interest in the man who was climbing back out of the grave. The many years of solitude had not stifled the yearning of the old man for companionship. He had longed for it almost unconsciously. Now, involuntarily, Brant was filling the vacancy. As hours rolled by, the kindly old rancher and the silent young man drew closer and closer together, the passing days tightened the bond, and the quiet of the starry mountain nights stamped the whole with its seal of confidence. As the evenings grew longer and warmer, Brant would sit for hours at a time upon the porch, beside Furst. And while his companion sucked at his pipe, the younger man would dreamily watch the smoke rings until it grew too dark to see. Then the two would converse softly and in broken sentences-each few words broken by long silences. One clear night when the moon was hid and the stars had dropped nearer the mountains than ever before, Furst repeated the history of eccentric John 30 THE SEQUOIA Paston and his famous "Light" Brant had heard the story many times, but nevertheless he listened with interest to Furst's rendition. "It's a land light-house, boy, that's what it is," he ended. "And, you know, sometimes I think it does just as much good." For a short minute his eyes scanned the northern sky. Then he pointed out the "Light"-hanging low over the horizon,-like a lost star. "That's it, son. Do you see it ?" "Yes," replied the other and was silent. Many times during the rest of that evening his eyes sought out the "Light" and his face relaxed. The rancher noted with wonder, on following nights, that often when he addressed a question to Brant, he received no answer 3 because the young man's dreaming gaze was fixed on the "Light," But F urst noted with greater wonder that after that evening Brant's recuperation went forward in great bounds- His face soon lost its deathly pallor and took on a slight red-tan. He vibrated with activity. During the day, he walked continually. Some nights he persuaded the old man to walk with him to the great precipice-the famous "Edge"-which but a short distance from the ranch house, hung over the great valley, and looked toward the "Light" There one night while the two lay on the grass and looked out over the valley, with his eyes fixed lovingly on the "Light," Brant opened his heart to his companion. "Al, I love that "Light!" I love it!" "So do I, lad." "Not the way I do, though, Al. I love it because it taught me the great- est lesson a man can learn if tl' 'l' the lesson of lessons 'l' "' "' the lesson of lessons." There was a short silence. Both men gazed at the "Light." Then Brant began again. "Money was my god when I lived under that "Light" I lost all I had in the "market"-think of it, Al-all! It nearly killed me. That thought, ruin, was killing me when dear old Spurry brought me up here. Somehow, the breadth and height of your grand mountains made me wonder if I had lost all- made me wonder if there wasn't something left "' "' "' "' Then-that night- you pointed out the "Light"-Lord-it broke upon my brain like a flash-money isn't worth a snap of your fingers, if it's weighed with the love of-the one woman. Oh, I had been blind-nzad- somewhere beneath that "Light"--that other moon out there-the dearest little woman in the world waits for me. Some- where"-and Brant's voice sunk to a bare whisper--"Somewhere under that other moon we'll face the future together--and-forget-the past-Mildred Fenton and-I tl' 4' tl' tk" The mountain stage was late the next day. The four horses and the lumbering wagon did not arrive at F urst's until after five- Morgan, the driver, was alone. He explained he had broken an axle on the hill and had to improvise another. THE SEQUOIA :si As he wearily climbed down from the high seat and reached for the mail sack, he spoke over his shoulder to F urst. "I can't make Mantone to-night. Do I bunk here, Al?" "You bet you do, Hans!" "Fine!" and Morgan thrust his great hand into the sackful of letters and papers. "There's a letter in here for that young feller-now, where the deuce-H F urst called to the man leaning over the porch-rail. "O Stan-a letterll' Brant's face lit up. "A letter for me? For me P" He ran down the steps and strode to Furst beside the stage. Morgan at length turned with the letter in his hand. "Here you are, Mr. Brant." He tossed the letter to the young man, and, as he vaulted to his seat, again addressed Furst. "Same stall in the barn, Al?" "Yes,,' said Furst. "Wait-I'll drive in with you." And he jumped up beside Morgan on the seat. The pair drove off in the direction of the barn. Brant had opened the envelope and stood stiffly, in the dust, reading the brief message a second time- His face had turned a trifle pale. The smile had died. The hand which held the letter-sheet trembled. "You really can't expect me to sacrifice myselff' he read aloud dully. "I hope you will understand that our engagement is a thousand times broken! MILDRED FENTONY' Again the face which Stanton Brant raised was a face which seemed to l1ave died. "Oh, my God!" he whispered. "Oh, my God!" and crumpled to the ground. When Furst and Morgan returned they found him lying there. Furst leaped forward and bent over the quiet body. "Another break-down-just when he was pulling thru-" "Maybe the letter brought bad newsf' interrupted Morgan. "The letter! Of course it was the letter. Damn all letters, any way. Do you hear me, Morgan, I say, damn letters!" Morgan nodded hurriedly. He had never seen F urst in such a rage. They carried Brant into the house and laid him on his bed. Furst ordered Morgan out of the room, and drawing a chair up to the bed- side, watched the still figure. For hours Furst hardly moved- At times the unconscious frame would shake in delirium and a voice, unrecognizable as Brant's, would mutter, "I've been tricked! The "Lightl' tricked me! The "Light" tricked me!" Finally, Brant's eyes opened. They were bloodshot. As he saw Furst he seemed only to half-recognize him. His dry lips cracked in a grin. He did not seem to notice Furst's involuntary shudder. He nodded ever so slightly toward the door. 32 THE SEQUo1.f1 "You can go, now," he commanded. His voice still held the wooden tones of his delirium. "I wish to be alonef' Furst arose and hesitated. "You can go now,'l the other repeated. Furst left the room. For as long as ten minutes he listened at the door. There came no sound from the other side. At length, satisfied, he went to his own room to snatch a bit of sleep. He found Morgan already in bed. It was early morning when both men heard the sound of shots-wildly and rapidly fired- It was Morgan, his somewhat morbid mind always conceiv- ing the worst, who suggested it. But it was Furst who lit the lamp and led the way to the sick man's room. They found the door locked. There was no answer to their rousing calls. So while Morgan held the lamp, Furst broke thru the door. The room was empty. Furst ran to the window, opened it and thrust his head out. After a brief intermission, the firing was continuing. For a moment Furst listened. At the door of the room, Morgan held the lamp towards the ceiling and watched Furst. Abruptly Furst drew his head in. Morgan stepped forward inquiringly. But Furst ran past him and out of the room, shouting: "He's got an automatic! He's over by the Edge! Come with me E" Very deliberately Morgan set the lamp on a cane-chair. Then he ran out of the house after Furst. Furst stood in the center of the white road, listening. The firing had stopped again. Morgan drew up beside him. It was a clear clean night. A billion stars winked at the little moon. Far out in the valley the "Light" twinkled-a bit bigger than the biggest star. A shot rang out. The sound hung over the valley and then burst into a thousand vibrations. Another and another followed it in quick succession. The two men jumped forward and ran with long strides in the direction of the explosions. Upon the very brink of the "Edge" they found him, his face and auto- matic turned toward the "Light," his back toward them. His head was rolling curiously from side to side. As they came up, he threw the automatic out over the valley. His two clenched hands rose tensely above his head. The two men stopped, wonderingly. Brant seemed to be eagerly watching the distant flare of the light. For a full minute he watched. X if tk it The "Light" burned on ff it Brant covered his face with his hands. As he tottered and sank to the ground, the two spectators leaped to his side. They bent over the prostrate form- Brant moaned continuously. As the two men lifted him up, the moans took a half-intelligible form. They appeared to be a constant re-iteration of the words. "It tricked me! Why couldn't I hit the danm thing? VV hy couldn't I hit the damn thing ?" from Sam-mule's Point of View Q T is a well known fact that all stories must have a point of view. Le. law suits and other disagreements. Participants in an event often - look at that event in altogether different lights. P 'U' A Take for instance the affair at Lake Alta. Wilbur Hunt and Harry Foster viewed it as a calamity, the young man known as Tommy regarded it as a blessing, and Sam-mule had his own views on the subject. As Sam-mule really played the leading role, it is proper that the story should be told from his viewpoint. Sam-mule was a little mouse-colored burro with a head too large for his body, and immense ears. Since time immemorial, to call a person an ass has been to insinuate that he lacks proper mechanism under his hat. However, here too, the point of view enters. If one burro should get disgusted with another, it might bray, "you're a man," and the maligned burro might have just cause to feel insulted. Sam-mule had a very poor opinion of mankind in general and of his two young masters, Harry Foster and Wilbur Hunt, in particular. It was beyond Sam-mule's comprehension, how anyone could feed a little burro four potato peels, two bacon rinds, a coffee can, and then expect that burro to pack a hundred and twenty-five pounds all day. Sam rather pitied them for not having better sense. After all they were only men. Nevertheless, Sam-mule often reflected that it was a hard life. Eat, if there is anything to eatg but pack every day. If the master feels disagreeable- beat the burro. If the hill is steep and the burro lies down to take a rest-beat the burro. If the burro starts down the canyon after a drink of water-beat the burro. Life is just one beating after another. Some burros become used to it, but not so with Sam-mule. Burros differ in temperament and Sam-mule was a sensitive soul. He simply could not bear disapproval, especially since it was always expressed in such a concrete form. Sam-mule gazed dreamily at the little mountain lake, Lake Alta it was called. Life had been easier the last few days. His masters were camping by the lake and all Sam had to do was drowse in the sun. True, he had eaten everything edible within the radius of his stake-rope and was in danger of be- coming hungry. Ah! Sammy's masters were returning to camp. Perhaps they would remember that even a burro needs a drink of water once in a while. Into the camp came a party of four persons. There was a pretty, laughing girl, and three young men, Wilbur Hunt, Harry Foster, and the other young man whom the girl called Tommy. The girl was staying with her mother at a summer hotel a little further along the lake. The mother was sitting on the Argyle Desmond, '17, ifflfil . . - . i . . I 555314 Viewpoints differ. Otherwise there would be no divorces, debates, page U l ' , ' 614- X 34 THESEQUOIA hotel porch, blessing the man who invented field glasses. The glasses permitted long distance chaperonage, which is a convenient thing when one is a trifle stout and not over-fond of walking. "Chl what a nice place to camp," enthused the girl, "isn't it, Tommy P" Tommy cast a cursory glance at the indiscriminate array of provisions, bedding, and utensils. "Oh, yes," he agreed, "the place is nice enough, but I can't say that I am charmed by the camp." The campers did not look exactly pleased. Harry Foster felt obliged to apologize to the fair visitor. "We have been too busy to fix the camp up much. Taking care of the burro required a lot of time and there are er-other things to do." ' Sam-mule was shocked! He knew that he could count on the toes of his left fore-foot, the minutes spent each day taking care of him. Sam-mule listened to the young folk converse about dances, the demerits of fleas and mosquitosg why a flapjack should be called a flapjackg the supremacy of tenor or baritone frog voices, what colored ribbon looked best in the girl's hair, and various other bits of nonsense. Sam was excessively bored. Poor dumb brute! He could think without talking while the chattering humans could talk without thinking. At last the girl and Tommy started toward the hotel. The campers busied themselves with preparing supper. "That darn Tommy makes me sick," grunted Wilbur Hunt. "Me too," assented his companion, "Hopping around here like a sick fish. Why, I don't believe he has as much sense as Sam-" Sam-mule silently agreed, at the same time making the observation that Tommy was not the only one in that class. "Dear Tommy thinks he is going to take Violet to the dance Saturday night," said Harry Foster, "but I will fool him there, for I am going to take her myself." . His comrade frowned, "Oh you are, are you? How in the deuce are you going to take her when I intend to do that very thing!" Then followed an altercation which was finally settled by a compromise. Wilbur was to take Violet to the dance and Harry was to see her home. Mean- while the potatoes boiled to pieces and the bacon carbonized. Foolish young men, thought Sam-mule, to let a girl interfere with an important matter like eating. A very necessary thing was eating, decided the burro, for he had a great emptiness inside. Then his heart almost broke when the potatoes and bacon were tossed on the ground just beyond his reach. "Hadn't we better try to feed the spuds to the burro ?" asked Harry. "He seems rather hungry." "Naw, he isn't hungry," replied the other. "Besides it is too late now. We'll have to go supperless ourselves and he is only a darn burro and can stand it." "That's right. Our grub is about gone and the only one who has any to THESEQUOIA 35 spare is that precious Tommy. Too bad for us that his father went to the city and left Tommy in charge of the hotel. Well, we will have to make our stuff last over Saturday so that we can take Violet to the dance- Hunting in the morning we will go." The young men slept soundly that night, but not so with Sam-mule. Visions of potatoes caused him to spend a restless night. At daybreak he tuned up to secure recognition of his hunger. "Shut up, you Rocky Mountain canary!" shouted the sleepy Harry, sitting up in bed. "Shut up, I say," and a well directed shoe caught Sam-mule in the ribs. Sam sniffed at the shoe, then tried to masticate it. "Oh you brute," cried Harry, and rescued his footgear. "Come, Wilbur, wake up. This leather-lunged, alligator-hided beast tried to chaw my shoe up. He must be hungry." Wilbur blinked and rubbed his eyes. "Well, we haven't anything to feed him. Besides there are some young pine trees he has not touched." Sam-mule almost fainted from the injustice of these words. Bacon rinds, paper, tin cans, and poison oak he might devour, but pine needles even a burro could not eat. - The campers cooked breakfast, picked up their guns, and strode off, leaving Sam gazing after them. The burro turned his attention to the potatoes- Had he received the benefit of a high-school education, he would have quoted: "I have thee not, yet I see thee still !" Memories of past indignities flocked fast upon Sam. His vitals were crying for food. Sammy became rebellious. He tried a strain on the stake- rope. It gave! Sam-mule lost no time in going to where the potatoes had been thrown. Oh shattered ideals and blasted dreams! Visions of a meal dwindled to realities. The potatoes had so mixed with dirt that there were scarcely two mouthfuls. Only two mouthfuls, and Sam-mule felt he needed several hundred. The burro's eyes fell on the provisions which were lying here and there. Late in the afternoon Sam pricked up his ears. His masters were returning. "We are back again,', announced Wilbur, "but we are deerless. I guess the only deers around here are d-e-a-r-s." The campers laughed but Sam only blinked. He had heard that original joke five hundred and thirty four times. "Shades of Rip Van Winkle!" exclaimed Harry. "Has a cyclone struck the camp! Oh gosh! all the grub is gone." For a minute the calamity kept them speechless, then words came in torrents. ' "Who's done it P" fiercely demanded Wilbur, "I bet Tommy did." Harry shook his head. "It would have been like him, but some animal has done this. Where is that four-legged canary P" "He is loose and is down the road. Oh! the long-eared jackass. He repays our kindness by robbing the camp. You sneaking camp-robber, I'll fix 36 THESEQUOIA you ly' Wilbur threw up his gun with deadly intent. Harry Foster knocked the gun aside. "Cut out the rough stuff, and calm down," he advised. "We need the burro to get home." Get home !" roared the would-be burrocide. "Get home! How in the deuce can one even live without eating?" Which was the very subject Sam-mule had been meditating upon a short time before. "Suppose we'll have to get some from Tommy,', said Harry mournfully. just then that worthy gentleman entered camp. "'Lo, fellows," he said, UI saw or rather heard, blue smoke rising from this direction and so came over to investigate." "Burro gobbled up 'the grub," snapped Wilbur. Tommy strove nobly to appear sympathetic. "Well, isn't that too bad!" KK he managed to say- There was silence in the little camp on the shores of Lake Alta. Tommy looked at the scenery and the two campers at each other. "Say, Tommy, do you think you could spare a few provisions ?" ventured Harry. "Awful sorry, old fellow, but I haven't any more than I need. Still, I don't want it said that I am not a good fellow. So, if you promise to leave be- fore the dance Saturday night I'll give you a little grub." And Tommy went whistling down the road. It would be hard to tell whether Tommy or Sam-mule received the most choice words in the campers' vocabulary. Wilbur turned to Harry. "You try and catch that-burro. I can't trust myself near him." Harry approached Sam-mule. "Here Sammy, darling long-eared one," he called in honeyed tones. "Whoa little donkey. Stand still, little bouquet of garlic." Amazed by the pleas- ant tone of voice, Sam allowed himself to be caught and was led into camp. By noon the next day there was a nice camping site by the shores of Lake Alta, but no camp. So Sam-mule's raid on the provisions was viewed differently by the vari- ous persons concerned- It reduced Violet's cavaliers from three to one. For that reason Violet felt "mad" at Sammmy. For the same reason, Tommy con- sidered Sam-mule's act a dispensation of Providence. It was a long time before VVilbur Hunt and Harry Foster were able to think of the incident without saying naughty words. n As for Sam-mule, his sensitive soul was exceedingly hurt by the whole business. To save oneself from starvation and then by being punished for it! But Sam-mule was somewhat of a philosopher. He flopped his ears, and reflected that, after all, life was only an endless string of packs, empty stomachs, tin cans, and beatings. Of course, his masters were not altogether to blame. They were only human. But Sam-mule would like to have enjoyed the power of speech such as was conferred on Balaam's Ass. Sammy would sure have set some ears a-tingling. Che fiery Pit By Alice Rager, '17. "'-' gf I N a certain tribe of western Indians lived a beautiful princess, Merry ifigi - - - Heart, whom the bravest warrior loved. Every evening that she I was in camp, they met. Laughing and talking, they would ascend E LQSQ' Q the cliff that extended like a great arm into the ocean. From the brow they watched the sun dip beneath the waves of the Pacific. Although they could see the breakers bound and foam around the jagged rocks that lined the beach, the water was calmer near the foot of the promontory. It was with wonder that they watched it change under the slowly setting sun into a pit of flaming fire. One night when the Brave, Quick Eye, was not in camp, the princess, Merry Heart, went alone to watch the sea, and dream of her love. In fancy she followed him through the thicket after the deer, or paddled with him down a singing river. Before he went away he had told her of some strange people, Palefaces, he called them. He had gone to trade furs with them for beautiful beads and trinkets. What would he bring her this time when he returned? Completely lost in fancy, Merry Heart sat motionless on the ground. Her two long braids, thrown over her shoulders, framed her dreamy eyes. Unfamiliar footsteps interrupted her reverie. She rose quickly and stood poised on her moccasined feet, like a startled woodcreature ready to fly from danger. The sight of a strange person held her spellbound. This must be a Paleface! She would have slipped away, but he spoke haltingly in her own tongue, "Fear not, maiden, I will not harm you." "Then you are welcome, Strange One," she answered shyly. She sat down again near the edge of the cliff. The Paleface stood close by, his interest centered in the beautiful sunset and the golden waves that re- flected its light. His pleasure was evident to Merry Heart, who said timidly in her soft voice, "We will soon see the fire now!" His interest encouraged her, and she lost some of her shyness as she told him the old legend. "Now is the time," she said, "When the wicked Spirit of the Underworld lights his great fire. just at night-fall its flames leap and flash where, just a moment ago, the silver spray of the tide was dashing." By the time she had finished, the sun, a blinding yellow disc, was suspended just above the distant horizon. Below them the pit was all aflame,-- to Merry Heart a wonderful and terrible sight. Quick Eye returned to camp bearing in triumph a huge deer. It was just at sunset, so he knew where he would surely find Merry Heart. He left his burden at the foot of the wooded slope, and with extra caution, to make his approach a surprise, he crept up the path. He imagined the happy light that would come into Merry Heart's eyes when she saw him and receive his token. 88 THESEQUOIA Then, in a single instant, anticipation gave place to raging passion. At the top of the slope his glance fell on his loved one. But by her side was a Pale- face. A Paleface talking to Merry Heart! With Indian stoicism he remained silent until he had crept within a step of the pair. Then a long, loud whoop gave vent to his surging anger. At a single stride he reached the paralyzed Paleface, and with one great push hurled him over the precipice- Grimly Quick Eye watched him sink in the pit, bright with leaping flames. Fearful of Quick Eye's displeasure, Merry Heart cowered at his feet. After several moments of intense silence, he slowly raised her. The wrath died. In his eyes were only love for Merry Heart. When darkness closed in, they went back to camp, by the twinkling light of the stars. For many moons they continued their custom of ascending the cliff, and every night the red rays of the setting sun pointed like bloody fingers to the place where the Paleface met his fate.

Marie had wanted to FWS' serve in a hospital, too, but there was more need for her at home than in the hospitals, and duty kept her at home. There were the aged grandfather, the crippled father, and the weary mother to be thought of. Marie knew that her duty was there among them and did not rebel aloud- Of course, she loved them all, but sometimes they were so tiresome and exorting. They were busy with their own troubles, their own memories, the mother and father busy in the fields whenever the weather permitted. So there was nothing for Marie to do when her household tasks were finished but knit and think. 011, how Marie hated that knitting. Every time she took it up, the tears started to her pretty black eyes. With every click of the needles, the story of her monoton- ous life in the secluded, forest-bound little village was repeated anew. But with the first hint of spring, things changed suddenly for Marie. Her father, coming in from the fields one day, put his hand on her shoulder tenderly Ig? IFE was very dull for Marieuthat winter. The little French village IRT will . ' . , . I 435 "' . . . ' and said, "Ah, little daughter, you are such a comfort to us in these troubleous times, and such a great help to your mother about the house. I know your duties are heavy as it is, but would you mind very much having still another person to fetch and carry for P" "Of course not," answered Marie, tossing back her dark curls, "but tell me quickly, who is coming, and when F" "One of the soldiers of our glorious French army, my dear. The poor fellows have been in the trenches all winter, and now they are being granted 'eave of absence to visit their homes. But the homes of a great many of them are in Northern France and are held by the Prussians. So, as they cannot reach their own homes, the soldiers are being quartered by families in this district. I have invited one of the brave fellows to share our home during his two weeks' leave. He will arrive in three days." Marie was in a tremor of excitement. While she prepared the one extra room in the house for the stranger, she saw him always in her mind's eye, always with an added charm. His face she made as familiar to her as her father's or mother's- The soldier of her dreams had black eyes and was tall. Oh, yes, and walked with a limp, owing to a slight injury to his foot. There was quite a struggle as to whether he should have curly brown hair or straight black, but Marie compromised on black hair with a wave in it. 40 THESEQUOIA "And he must have a scar," Marie whispered to herself, with little shivers of excitement running up her spine, "on his forehead, I think, yes, the forehead is the best place, a scar will make him look so distinguished." Marie's heart beat faster just at the picture her imagination painted. The dull days were certainly over for l1er. At last the long-expected day came, the day on which the soldier was to arrive. Marie was on the porch with her father and mother and grandfather. Far down the road a speck approached steadily, on foot. Yes, that was surely heg but was there a limp? No, and he wasn't even tall! As he lifted his cap, a shock of bright red hair was revealed. Marie, without waiting to see more, fled to her room, with her heart full of disappointment. Later she summoned up her courage and was introduced to the soldier. She saw her idol completely fallen. Instead of the tall dreamy, slightly wounded soldier was a short, round, perfectly healthy little gargoyle of a man, with a front tooth missing, and an excellent appetite. Instead of her reading poetry to him, he conversed long and loudly on his past experiences as a barber in Paris- After dinner he became even more confidential and drew a small photo- graph from his pocket. When Marie saw it, she gasped. There was the soldier of her dreams,-dark eyes, wavy dark hair, dreamy poetic look, scar, and all. "Who-who is this P" she managed to ask. "Oh," replied the soldier, "that's my nephew. He's in the same company as I am. Fact is, it was his turn to have the next leave of absence, and he was to have come here. But he was so goodhearted, he wanted me to have the vacation up in this part of the country. Besides, he was just wounded in the foot a little, so I left him limping around in the trenches with a book of poems." 'Che Lady Slipper Catharine Dickson, '19.

T I T was a summer evening inva little town in Northern Mexico. An old man leading a burro with an empty pack, was the only one on I thc street. When he reached Abe Murry's store he stopped, and .kgggg'jN i after tying up his burro drawled a Hhowdyl' to the fellows. "Any of yuh ever heard of a Mexican named Ramez ?" He looked slowly at the mens' faces and then continued. "I kindr thought he might be in these parts somewheresf' "Yes," answered old Abe, "there's a Mex by that name down on thc Spanish trail. I think he's got a mine with a couple more of them Mexicans." "Know how fer it is down there P" As he asked this a cold gleam shot from his eyes but it lasted only an instant. Then he was the same harmless- looking old man. "Oh, about three days from here," answered Abe, "Yuh agoin' to put up yer mule and stay over ?" "Nope, guess I'll pack on some grub and dig out." "Now thets' plumb peculiar." It was Old Abe who spoke after the stranger vanished down the road- All knew that something was coming. "Quite a spell back," began Abe, "there was pretty wild times in these parts. A good many o' the settlers vamoosed an' again some stayed. A family named McCormicks was one of 'em thet hung on. They lived down at Placer Gulch in Mexico, raisin' cattle for a livin' and doin' pretty well at it. Then one night some Mexicans raided the place. They killed old- man McCormick and his wife, but somehow their little boy escaped. Waal, some folks kept him 'till he was old enough to do fer hisself an 'then he left. He started in then to hunt fer them Mexicans thet killed his folks. I heard about him ten or 'leven years back and he was still huntin' and what's more he seemed to know who he was after, but just couldn't find that sartin party." Here Abe sat musing for a moment. "Wall, that Mex Ramez 'll have to pay now, because if I ain't mistaken that was Sandy McCormick-old man McCormick's boy-and it happened forty years ago." 74? my "Lucky" Breaks a Vow By Edmund Chisholm, 'l8. S a rule, "Lucky" did not like dogs. In fact, he hated them. He i ' X . . . . . xx' could hardly remember a day in his fifty-odd years of mining-camp IW? , life when he had not uheaved a club" at a retreating dog. 5 But there are exceptions to every rule. "Lucky" was hunt- in rabbits in the woods near his cabin, and came u n a Scotch 8' P0 collie in distress- One of the dog's hind legs was caught and severely crushed in a trap that "Lucky" had set for coons. The dog looked up at "Lucky" with watery eyes and pawed the ground with his fore paws, as if pleading for help. "Lucky" was for the first time moved to pity for a dog. He released the trap from the dog's leg and carried him to his cabin, where he bound the crushed leg in strips torn from an old shirt, then made the dog lie on some old blankets in one corner of the cabin. While the dog was recovering strength, "Lucky" sought in vain for the animal's owner. He grew to like the dog and at the end of a week, when the leg was almost healed and no owner could be found, "Lucky" resolved to keep him. It was but a matter of a few weeks when "Lucky" told the "boys" at the Elite Saloon, the only one in the settlement, that he wouldn't part with the dog for any amount of money. He even went so far as to "swar ter Gawd" that he would never throw another club at any dog under any conditions. But "Lucky" soon changed his mind. jeff Briggs, one of the fellows in the saloon at the time "Lucky" swore to treat dogs more leniently, was standing in the door of the Elite a few days later. He was just wishing something would turn up, when he saw a little black cur come tearing down the road, closely followed by a raging "Lucky." "Lucky" pursued the dog until he got a good kick at it, then came into the saloon. "Thought you wasn't goin' to hit no more dogs," said Jeff smilingly. "Mebbe I wouldn't if I ever seen one of the brutes that was any good," replied "Lucky" angrily. "Thought you had a good dog," and jeff still smiled. "Yeh, so did I fer a while, but the dirty brute deserted me a couple of days ago. Ain't seen him since. jest like the critters." "Mebbe somebody swiped him or something happened to him," said Jeff. "I'd like to get ahold of the feller that swiped him, if anybody did." "Lucky" anger arose at the thought of thus losing the dog. "I'd just like to tear 'im up and feed 'im to the crows," he continued. "Well, I'd hate to be the feller that swiped him, then," said Jeff, and he passed out of the saloon and up the one narrow street of the settlement to his cabin. He had heard a dog barking, somewhere in that direction. If anyone had followed Jeff he would have seen him enter a little, old, THESEQUOIA 43 twisted-looking cabin. There a Scotch collie breathed his last, dying on a heap of blankets in one corner of the cabin. Then Jeff could be seen to take a shovel from another corner and dig a hole behind the cabin, into which he dumped the dead dog. Jeff looked absent-mindedly at the dog before covering him up, and said, "It's too bad I mistook you for a coyote, old sport, but accidents will happen. 'Suppose your death will cause a little inconvenience to dogs on "Lucky's" trail, but that can't be helped either. So here goesf' So jeff buried "Lucky's" dogg and "Lucky" was ever a menace to other dogs that crossed his path. Springtime Zola Thurston, '19. O Spring, in all thy glory With brightly tinted skies, In every nook and crannyg Your beauteous flowers rise! The modest violet shows its face From velvet beds of green. The pearls of the early morning dews Are on every blossom seen. The robin sings in every tree, Which is the sign of spring, The tiny brooklets sweep the rocks In joyous murmuring. The buds are bursting into bloom, To tell the world their story. But the day will come when spring must fade, From all her wondrous glory. when Billy Made it fast By Howard Christie, '18. "Say, jimmy, when's that snail due P" "Ought to be here any time now," jimmy answered with a note of im-- patience in his voice, "but then when you've known Billy as long as I have, you won't expect him till he gets here." "Sh-h! some one's coming," came the warning from the sentinel on the sign board. Five boys huddled close together behind the big bill board where, during the early evening, the casual observer might have seen them conie stealthily, one by one, up the narrow street and quietly crawl thru a convenient hole to the rendezvous on the other side. The stranger approached slowly with a sort of leisurely shuffle, till direct- ly opposite the broken board that served as an entrance. He then looked in all directions and, observing no one, proceeded to waddle clumsily thru the opening. "Well itls about time," observed Jimmy. "Did you ever hurry or get any where on time in your life ?" "Nope! don't remember of ever having to move fast in my life," Billy answered good naturedly. "Well, we'll have to move if we're going to get those eats. It's almost time for them to be served now," jimmy remarked in a business-like tone. The boys were high school students out on a "raid" as they termed it. One of their number was having a party and had not included them in the invitations, so they intended taking the refreshments and having a party all by themselves, at the same time playing a good trick on the host who had so wittingly left them out. "Well, Billy, I guess it's up to you to go and get 'em," jimmy remarked in a relieved voice. "L0ok's that way," was the passive reply. The boys had just drawn straws to see who would do the daring act, and as usual Billy was the "goat," Billy made his way carefully thru the back gate among the following cautions and jeers. "Now don't fall up the steps,,and be sure not to step on the cat or wake the dog," cautioned Jimmy- "Be sure to get that cream cake, and don't forget the ice cream," came in a whispered chorus. Billy haughtily disdained to answer and disappeared from sight leaving a breathless silence which reigned for about three minutes, when it was broken by a fearful uproar of mingled human voices, cat yowls, dog barks and a terrific clatter of tin ware and other kitchen utensils. THESEQUOIA 45 "Well, that clumsy mutt has balled things up for sure," came disgustedly from Jimmy, and was echoed by the rest of the boys. "We'ed better get out of here or we'll all get caught," came from the leader- But before they could retreat, the back gate burst open and out shot a figure going so fast that he was hardly distinguishable, and firmly affixed to the seat of his trousers was the family bull terrier. The figure started up the street at such a rate of speed that it was soon lost in the darkness. Five wide-eyed, open-mouthed boys started after the retreating figure till, warned by on-coming foot steps that they were discovered, they took after their fleeing companion and arrived in time to find him placidly perched on the top of the sign board munching wafers and ice cream while a solemn faced bull terrier paced relentlessly beneath him. "Well, Billy, I'll never say you're slow again," Jimmy said apologetically, "for you sure made it fast, considering the ice cream and cake-" "Not to mention the dog," cut in Billy with his characteristic grin.

The dark clouds now were lined with gold, As the sun his path descended. And away in the east, where the rain still fell, Arched a rainbow with colors blended.

Che Mystery of the Lonesome Bills fSophomm0re Honor Storyj By Atossa Ballard, 'l9. rf., AST aside and forgotten by Progress, the little town of Kepnongh T lay in a valley of sandy desolateness at the edge of the Black Rock all Desert. To this little town had come one Arnold James Lloyd, a man XVFQZ- of the cities, whose education and upbringing contrasted sharply with those of the people among whom he found himself. Lloyd was an author, ever wishing to tell of the places that other writers chose to for- get and that civilization had not touched. So when he heard of Kepnough and the Lonesome Hills and the mystery because of which they had been so named, he journeyed there with the hope of solving that mystery and of weaving a story around it. f Now, at the summit of one of the hills he drew rein and let his eyes roam over their ragged panorama while he recalled the strange stories told by the few men who would talk to him at Kepnough. There was a canyon somewhere in the hills called Deserted Canyon. When the wind blew strong enough to carry the sound, a strange, 'wild wail came from the vicinity of the canyon. That sound was said to have stampeded cattle, it was certain that it had driven superstitious miners from their work. When man or beast came near the canyon, the eeriness of the song seemed to deprive them of courage and reason, so that they fled. And so they had kept their course from it and called it deserted. The hills came by their name because of the lonely wail and of the scarcity of human beings in their vicinity. No one had ever been able to determine the cause of the sound or from what direction it came. But Lloyd had an idea formed from the tales told to him, and to-day he had come to try his luck. Drawing in a deep breath, he put his horse to the trail and began his search. He rode leisurely at first, studying the hills carefully, and marveling at the peculiarity of their character. He would need to know them perfectly if he put them into his story. So he whiled away hour after hour. Then, when the sun dipped low and a cool, stiff breeze came out of the west, there came on it a long, low whine. It became more perceptible as dark- ness began to close in and the wind blew more sharply. Then, after a while, it settled to a poignant, hollow cry, not unlike that of some lost creature. It was not altogether distinct, but Lloyd knew instantly the place from whence it came. It was just ahead of him, over the hill, and, now that he had heard the sound, he was quite confident that he knew its cause. But when he had ridden for an hour, always certain that the source was just ahead, he began to realize that the task he had set for himself was not to THESEQUOIA 47 be acco-nplished in one attempt, and he realized also that this must be the way all others had begun. They were certain of the place, and when they got there the sound came from just ahead or from some other direction. So Lloyd went back to Kepnough that night with his own nerves quailing at that weird plaint, and with the reins tight-drawn to keep his horse from running the hills. The next day and the next, he rode out again. But he could not find Deserted Canyon, and there was no wind, even at sunset, to bring the song to him. Then, on the fourth trip, at a shallow canyon's brink far out on the western side of the hills, Lloyd suddenly came upon what he knew must be Deserted Canyon and what he believed to be the source of the wind-wail. He dismounted and lay in the shadow of his horse upon the rock-strewn hillside,-and was not disappointed. ' With the first sweep of the wind up the wide-mouthed canyon, a long, subdued howl rose from its depths. The sound subsided with the wind, rose again spasmodically as the wind came in fits and gusts. Then, when the breeze came steadily, the wail, by turns increasing and decreasing in volume, poured out into the surrounding hills in the thousand voices of the wild. Now there came the hunting-cry of wolves, now the shrill scream of the eagle sounding down from dizzy heights, now it was like the death-song of a warrior, and now like the lonely moan of the wind in the pines on winter nights when the snow is sifting down. And Lloyd, listening, reveling and shuddering by turns, smiled that so simple a thing had been mysterious even to the ignorant people of Kepnough. There was no mystery about it at all, only strangeness and a certain wonder. It was not a grotesque unknown to be feared, only a gigantic harp built by nature for the fingers of the wind. At the head of the canyon a huge cliff rose sheer and fearsome whose jagged face was clipped and gashed by storm and wind until purplish rifts of rock stood out from it here and there like buttresses. A little distance in front of the cliff towered a natural rock wall, multi-colored and fantastically turretedg and in this wall were several great holes. The wind, sweeping up the canyon, howled through the holes, sang about in the hollow between the wall and the cliff. The cliff caught the sound and echoed it back to the surrounding hills, and the hills sent it on and on until it finally died in the distances. The song had been sung for ages, and unless the wall were removed, either by the raging of the elements or by the hand of man, never would it cease. But although it might be better for man to have the hills free from the wind-ghost, Lloyd could not bring himself to think that man had scarce the right to tear away so wonderful a creation of nature, Perhaps, he thought, if those who had feared could be made to understand, all would be well. And since he was the only one who knew, he resolved to be the one to tell, at all costs. Late that night Lloyd rode home under the stars, his heart light as a school-boy's, his task done-the mystery of the Lonesome Hills solved. Che Ceacheve Beau By Eleanor Blake, 'l9. "Miss Grey !" "Yes, Fred, what is it ?" "I can't find the Danube River," said the boy, as he laid a dilapidated geography book upon the teacher's desk. Miss Grey pointed out to him the river in question, but although he mumbled, "Thank you," he had seen some- thing far more interesting at the teacher's desk than a black line indicating the Danube River. Propped up against a paper file, sealed and stamped, was a ietter, addressed in Miss Greyis handwriting to Paul Sevier, Chestney, Cali- fornia. "Miss Grey has a beau. His name is Paul Sevier," he whispered to his brother john who sat behind him. "I bet she goes to The Forks to mail that letter to-night. We'll look"- "Fred," Miss Grey interrupted sternly, "you were out of order. Write disorderly three hundrded times before you go home to-night." That night at supper, Mr. McCann remarked, "I dun'no' what kin be the matter with jim. He ain't been home for three weeks now. I bet he's struck on that pretty school teacher that boards over to Crogan's." Jim McCann, a brother of Fred, John, and the others, had hired himself out to Crogan's for the harvest season, since, as his father had stated, "Seven kids is enough to keep this ranch runnin'." Weeks passed by, and every Monday Miss Grey made her trip to The Forks with a letter, and received one in return. One morning Rachael Brown confided to John, "I think Miss Grey is going to get married. She has an engagement ring." "Knew it all the time," John bragged. By this time, every boy and girl at school, nine in number, knew about Miss Grey's beau. The crowning information came when Rachael Brown, who had a curious way of finding out things, announced, in a way characteristic of her sex, "That fellow Miss Grey writes to is coming to stay at Crogan's for a month. Miss Grey is going to meet him at The Forks next Friday." The next Friday, Miss Grey dismissed school a half hour early, so she coud meet the stage. But, before she could gather up her books and wraps, the McCann boys had untied her grey mare and chased it down the road toward Croghan's. Then they had gone on their way home. When they had gone half a mile in that direction, the culprits tied their own horse to a tree, and made a B-line for the road to Crogan's, intent on "Getting a look at- Miss Grey's beau." As they hid in the brush beside the road, many and varied were the con- jectures as to the personal appearance of the unknown "Lucky Guy." In about twenty minutes, Miss Grey appeared, driving a horse hired at The Forks. Beside her sat a stranger- just as the couple passed the McCann boys, the teacher said, in a clear, distinct voice, "I have told no one but mother that I am going to marry jim McCann next summer, grandfather." Marv Tantra Gfperience By Dorothy Hubbard, '19. Q I shan't, so now, 'cause I hate yuh, I hate yuh!" and Mary jane fled to a deserted place in the back yard. j It is a dreadful thing to have a beautiful and perfect sister, who never gets into scrapes, while you never seem to be out of V them. Add to that the fact that you are homely, and that mother loves Mary Ellen better, and the world would seem very black to you, as it did to Mary Jane. She was a small child of eleven years. Her hair was just between red and brown, and was, of course, straight, and stringy. Her face was bedecked with the usual number of freckles- She had a 11056 that unmistakably turned up, while her rather large mouth, which seemed made for smiles, now drooped pathetically. A tiny voice at her elbow, aroused her from her reverie. "Please, Mary jane, don't be so mad at me. The junk man's comin' to- morrow. Let's go get some bottles to sell him. He's goin, to pay five cents for the big ones, and two for the little ones." Up jumped Mary Jane, her anger instantly disappearing. "Where'll we get 'em P" she asked. "I tell yuh. Let's go over to Mrs. Linnet's and get some. She's got lots of 'em. "Mother'll care," quavered Mary Ellen. Mrs. Linnet was a widow, with beautiful golden hair fthe secret envy of Mary janej, but the color of which was obtained from the drug store, so the old- fashioned population of the village would have nothing to do with her. "All right, scare-baby, I'm goin' anyway, but don' yuh tell or you'll be sorry!" With this reply Mary Jane, hopped nimbly over the fence, into the Linnet's back yard, soon reappearmg with an apron full of bottles. "If yuh donlt tell, Mary Ellen, I'll give yuh half of 'em," she promised. "I won't tell,'l solemnly declared Mary Ellen. As they were stacking the bottles, Mary Jane stopped suddenly, then quickly seized a large one, tucked it under her apron, and made for the stairs, while Mary Ellen gazed in astonishment. just then came the call to supper. Mary Jane, late as usual, dashed into the dining room, her mud-spattered dress suffering a strange contrast to her sister's spotless one. "Mother, may I go up-stairs? I don't want any supper, 'cause my stomach aches," she pleaded. "Why certainly, if you don't feel well," said her mother. As soon as Mary Jane was out of the room, Mary Ellen repeated their day's performances, not excluding the trip to Mrs. Linnet's. 50 THESEQUOIA Her mother rose quietly from the table, and proceeded upstairs to her daughter's room, but the door was locked. "Mary Jane, open that door." "I can't, Mother," and a slip of paper was slid under the door. The mother picked it up, and unfolded it. It began, "Dear Mother,-I'm goin' to run away, 'cause nobody loves me, 'cause I'm so homely. Goodby, Mary Jane." "Mary Jane, let me in at once l" she said. The key turned in the lock, and the door opened, but the room was in darkness. "Mary Jane, where are you ?" A muffled sob was the only answer. Her mother switched on the light- In one corner of the room was a huddled object, its head swathed in a large towel, which her mother jerked off. "O-oh, Mo-ther, d-o-n't! I thot yu-u didn't l-o-ve me, 'cause in-y-y ha-air is red, so I tried to bl-bl-bleach it, but"-here her voice trailed into silence. Her mother gazed at the tall bottle, on the dresser, bearing the label "Makes the Hair Golden." Then she gazed at Mary jane's half red, half drab head. "My darling little flElllglltC1"lH she murmured, gathering Mary Jane's crumpled little figure into her arms. Bow the Moon Lost Part of It's Light By George Gift, '19. Years ago the people of the Northland were at war with the South Landers. Woden was the god of the Northland and the Moon, while Zeus ruled the Southland and the Sun. At one time there was a great battle that lasted for days. Woden became interested in it and forgot to look at the Moon, who wandered from her regular path and appeared just as the sun went down- The Northlanders were being beaten and wished for darkness that they might retreat in safety. Their army was growing smaller day by day, but to leave their stronghold in daylight meant defeat and death. When Woden saw their plight, he rushed to the edge of the world, and having caught the moon, he said, "You have almost ruined my people by going astray. Another offence of this kind and the All-Father will take you from the sky. You have been out of your track for a month, so once a month you shall hide your face. but never again shall you have your full light. The marks of my smoke-blackened hands shall remain on your face as long as you are in the sky." Time has mixed the races and washed out their differences, Woden and Zeus have passed from the earth and the hearts of meng but the Moon has never varied, nor ever will, from the track in which she was placed by the god with the blackened hand. . Q ff In 50 H Votress of Diana QFreshman Honor Storyj - By Lora Craig, '20, I T was the day after Papa brought home two new dogs, Tige and ' try them out in a wood-rat l1u11t. I could find only one. I quickly remedied each end of the rope With the middle Hazel, that I decided to searched for ropes but I this by tying one dog at of the cord in my left hand and a stick in my right we set forth into the pme woods : 1 I I It was near four o'clock, by the sun, when we found the first of the huge piles of sticks and leaves which Papa had told me were the homes of wood-rats. It was piled high against a log, with green boughs scattered over its surface. I knew by these that the nest was not deserted, for uninhabited nests do not have green boughs on them. It was hard to make the dogs understand what I wanted. Tige was surprisingly stupid. He was a large, black and white spotted hound. His big ears flopped around when he moved, and his long sleek tail wagged in- cessantly. Hazel was a brown mongrel. Her nose and head were pointed- Her small feet were quick and her step was sure. "Come on, Tige! Sic 'em. Hazel l" I cried, making the twigs fly as I scratched at the nest with my stick. The top of the nest came off in a jiffy. The dogs' strong claws were nearing the center of the rat's home. Tige barked and ran stupidly about. I wanted to pull his ears. Any dog ought to know that it is wrong to bark before the game is sighted. However, Hazel kept at her work. The green and red lights in her eyes were all that revealed her excitement. l When we reached the inner nest. or storehouse, here came the rat. His tiny black eyes glittered as he dashed towards a tree. Hazel, tense, but cool, leaped at him, and seized the poor fellow between her strong white teeth. One short squeak, and all was over for the rat- It was growing late now, and the dogs were restless: so we started home triumphantly. Tige was so frolicsome that he was quite a bother. Hazel would dart around a bush or small tree, thus tangling us all up. However, the walk was very pleasant. The saucy brown squirrels seemed saucier than usual that day. One little fellow threw pine cones on us as we rested under a tree. The gray squirrels scolded as we passed them, but kept at a safe distance. Away off in the woods a grouse drummed loudly at intervals. Heedless of time, I walked on slowly. Suddenly I realized that it was getting late. The birds had stopped singing. I also noticed that the brush and the faint trail I had been following was lost in the leaves. 52 THE SEQUOIA While I was making my way through some huckleberry bushes, a branch, released from some former entanglement by the pressure of my hand, flew back and struck me across the eyes. It took some minutes to recover from the blow, and in the meantime T ige and Hazel had run away. I crawled through the huckleberry thicket only to be confronted by the steep side of a canyon. But I went on, praying for less brush. By the time I reached the bed of the canyon, hindered as I was by rocks and logs of fallen trees, it was quite dark. Objects blurred before my eyes: frightful noises of the night filled my ears, and my heart thumped with the fear of the unknown- On the left a huge rock rose, forming an appalling barrier, behind me was the dry bed of the canyon, to the right was the steep slope by which I had descendedg and in front the creek bed stretched away among boulders and sharp rocks. I mustered courage, and went on down the creek bed. Here and there were stagnant pools of water into which I sometimes stepped, in the darkness. Then the moon came up slowly. It revealed only a dark, terrible shape ahead of me. I paused and closed my eyes in terror, only to open them immediately, for the silence jarred on my nerves. I stole a look atthe object to see if it moved. As it did not, I crept cautiously towards it. An owl hootedg another answered. I trembled, staggered, and fell, shaking with fear against the object, which proved to be only an odd-shaped rock. "Perhaps it is a wild-cat's den," I murmured. The thought gave me new strength, and I crept on. Luck was against me, for I stepped into a pool of water, and before I could catch hold of anything I stumbled in, up to my knees. A My last drop of courage ebbed. I was so tired! I would lie down and let the panthers eat me. Then I heard a shout. Oh, blessed sound! I called back with all my might, and was finally rewarded by a flash of light ahead of me. It was a searching party led by my father- Tige and Hazel had reached home safe. I never forgave them for desert- ing a comrade in peril. Hope Rae McLaren, '17. Piercing the night, a star- Just a faint gleam in the sky, Alone and wan, it seems the light Of a cloud-ship swimming byg Yet why is its pale ray so bright- Piercing the night, a star! Che Coll of Samoa Beach Kenneth Stewart, '19, qu I N the Samoa sands lies what was, a few months ago a part of our rf navy-a stately cruiser and a small but useful submarine. The I world looked toward Eureka for a few days, learned the bare facts of the grounding of the navy boats, then forgot. Mm I The world knows that the submarine H-3 grounded on the sands of Samoa Beach at eight o'clock in the morning of the fourteenth of December, 1916. The world knows that the cruiser Milwaukee met a similar fate early in the morning of January 13th, 1917. She knows that the wrecks endangered hundreds of lives, cost millions of dollars. She knows that apparently useless efforts are being made to. save a small part of the battered wrecks. That is all. Few are those who know the interesting, pathetic and humorous heart stories, connected with these events, and to acquaint them with a few of these would require a book. The story comes to us that on the afternoon of the sub- marine disaster, two terror-crazed sailors attempted to end their lives by means of the escaping gas, and another of the ship's crew saved them only after a desperate struggle. The force of the waves was so great that the men had to tie themselves to something stationary to escape being battered to death. It is difficult to understand how the sailor lads could strike land with a jest on their lips after being pounded and buffeted in the small destroyer for nine long hours, but they did-all but two, and those two were unconscious. When one's life is endangered it is seldom that he can think of others, of dumb animals in particular, but three of those stranded sailors on the Milwaukee did. One, ocean-soaked, make the dangerous trip holding aloft a helpless blind cat, endeavoring to save it from the salty spray. 'Two other men made the same precarious trip with dogs as companions. It is not for us to know how many others did similar kind acts, even at the peril of their own lives. While the thousands on the beach watched and prayed for those who were so near, yet so far, little did they realize what was going on aboard the Milwaukee. Here stood a pale faced sailor gazing straight ahead, thinking of his home, wondering if he would ever see it again. There was a man making attempts at jocular conversation-trying to cheer his comrades, while in his own heart was nothing but dark forebodings. Sailors were hurrying and scurrying here and there, endeavoring to collect those few belongings which they could best take ashore. On the great side of the ship others awaited their turns to be taken through the breakers to dry land. In one place a number of the jackies were tossing coins to see who would make the difficult and danger- ous trip ashore by means of the breeches buoy. Something was happening everywhere. ' The sun set in the western skies. Then twilight. A hundred lights of lanterns and fires sprang forth on the peninsula. The moon rose, dimming the glow on the beach, and gazed serenely over the silent wrecks, so lately the scene of heroic deeds of men-brave men.

They understood that progress implies thought. If men might be Ill-YQ? taught to think, they could and would intelligently minister to the MS growing needs of Democracy. This ministration would not only create progressive Democracy 5 it would be progressive Democracy. The Public School was to be the muse of Democracy. Besides throwing a protective arm about the democratic institutions left as our rich heritage, it was to inspire impatience with those institutions which future years would reveal as undemocratic, and it was to do this thru the impulse to thought which it created. For, as impatience is the motive power which must turn the wheels of Progress, so pointed thinking, the ability to form efficient ideas, is the fuel which must provide the impatience. This was the duty of the Public School of the nineteenth century, which modernly speaking, we term the Grammar School, and this is no less the duty of the High School of to-day-since in the interval between yesterday and to- day the Grammar School has lost its former significance and has sunk to the position of a mere stepping-stone to the High School. It is indeed upon the High School that the heavy burden now lies. There is but one reason for this change in our educational status. Passing years are requiring an ever higher standard of intelligence to minister to the needs of Democracy-to insure a progressive Democracy. Each decade is uncovering new problems, each of greater complexity than the last, and the average intelligence must be on a par 58 THESEQUOIA with the increase in complexity of these problems, or Democracy is impossible. The High School, for this reason, is indispensible. The High School finds youth at the climax of its life-at a time when youth is beginning to form definite conclusions, prejudicial and otherwise. It is the High School's duty and should be its aim to inspire the use of thought in the formation of these conclusions. The High School should dwell more and more upon democratic government-its government should be really progressive Democracy. At the present time the youth of this country must learn to think better than ever before. This is the trumpet-call of Progress! The High School of to-day in taking the place of the Grammar School of yesterday must inspire to greater deeds. The Grammar School was sufficient to inspire the Democracy which makes our to-day, but it would fall far short of inspiring the Democracy of to-morrow. This, in a word, is the mission of the High School. But as surely as the nineteenth century Grammar School is unfit to fill the needs which created the twentieth century High School, so the High School will be inadequate for the great day-after-to-morrow. Let us, how- ever, rest assured that if to-day's tomorrow is properly mothered, to-morrow's to-morrow will take care of itself. Progress, inspired, will model her own tools with which to carve out her future. RAE McLAREN. i...li ii?- Hutumn Kloodlands Atossa Ballard, '19. I wandered alone in the woodland, Far away from the striving town, Where November's cold had turned all gold The leaves that were falling down. Slowly the trees were unrobing, Tiny the brook had become, But its laugh rang shrill through the woods so still, For it knew it would soon be dumb. In the depths of the prattling brooklet Were the alders' black shadows seen, Weaving shadow lace in the water space That the fallen leaves left between. The wild-geese were winging southward, High in the air they flew, Where clouds sailed by in the cold-gray sky, And November's crisp winds blew. And over all was a silence That breathed of a coming storm, When December's chill would wrap wood and hill, In white blankets, thick and warm. Jlym ,,1.-- -YIM4., ml WW" "' Mx H Banner Year H HIS has been a year of which the Eureka High School can justly Til i be proud. That indefinite, inexplicable element, 'fschool-spirit," has become a unit in the progress of our school. No longer need C741 'Wm that hackneyed subject be held before the students as something MEM to aspire for. Now it needs only to be maintained. It has been inculcated into every student so firmly that it will take years to root it out. The juniors started the year with the best Freshman reception that has been given since that occasion became one of the events of our high school social calendar. After a number of enthusiastic rallies, the football team piled up some of the largest scores known in the county, incidentally winning the champion- ship for the first time in years. The tennis players bested all their opponents- The girls followed up their victories of last year with another basketball championship. 1902 was the last year in which our boys defeated all the other county high school teams in baseball. Two papers, in addition to the Sequoia, came to light. NVhat was declared by critics to be the most successful amateur dramatic offering ever given in Eureka played to a capacity audience at the Imperial Theater. The standard of school work has been better. All this is because the students have begun to take an interest in the school, have begun to want to see it come out ahead. They have wo11 that for which they have sought-school spirit.

THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS The year 1916-17 has been a record breaker in the history of the Student Body. The students have responded willingly and cheerfully to the call to duty in both work and outside activities, and the splendid co-operation with their officers has set a high standard for future classes to emulate. Much of the proficiency is largely due to the efforts of the officers whose names follow: President-Page Cutten. Vice-President-Elizabeth McMillan. Secretary-Mae Lord. Treasurer-George Winzler. Sergeant-at-arms-George VValdner. Athletic Manager-Jean Langford- Yell Leader-Brewer Peterson. Editor-in-chief of the "Sequoia"-Rae McLaren. Business Manager-John VVahl.

PARENT TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION The Parent-Teachers' Association has continued its active interest in behalf of school welfare work, and we have come to look upon it as one of the important organizations of our high school- Always anxious that youngsters should have enough to eat, they have re-established their cafeteria. It also looks after the school affairs of the seniors, and entertains them at a reception at least once a year. Their officers for the year are: President-Mrs. Walter Kildale. Vice President-Miss Elzaida Hanson. Secretary-Mrs. G. R. Georgeson. Treasurer-Mrs. A. W. Hill. ESTIMATING COMMITTEE With Miss Acheson as chairman ,assisted by Page Cutten, Mae Lord, Clarissa Foster, and Brian Sanders, the Estimating Committee have performed their task well in ascertaining the costs of the high school activities, and fixing the price of the Student Body tickets. THE EVERGREEN The Freshmen's little Evergreen is distinguished for its freshness and its greenness, and a vigorous use of pen and shears keeps it as fresh as a new mown lawn. In the course of events we expect to see evolve from the galaxy of literary stars which illumine the pages of the Evergreen, a Shakespeare, a Milton, a Homer, and a Macaulay. The Evergreen is published every six weeks and compares favorably with other high school papers. The purpose of the paper is to encourage writing with a literary style, and increase the facility of expression. Miss Fields is general manager, ably assisted by Miss Helmer. THE SOPHMORE BEE The duties of the Sophmore Bee were to gather news as its namesake gathers honey, and like its namesake, it survived but one season, and had some pointed things in it. With honeyed words the paper won favor in the school. It is not decided whether the Bee is to be or is not to be. If not to be, then it will be a Bee no longer, but we hope the Sophs will have their Bee, and its usefulness grow stronger. The staff for the year was: THE SEQUOIA as Editor in Chief-Kenneth Stewart.

THE RALLY COMMITTEE For the first time in the Sequoia, the Rally Committee makes its bow to the public. Though but nine months old, it is a husky youngster and has already yelled itself into fame. Its hardest work is to rally a committee meeting. Silence is golden therefore the committee will never be wealthy, for its chief purpose is to make noise. As the noise of geese saved Rome, so has the rallying noise of the committee frequently saved the day for Eureka. Peterwn, McGeorge, Hunt and Davis Winzler, Foster and Art Remell These are the ones who put the pep Into Eureka's victorious yell.

Ma Chere Amie: At last I am going to write to you concerning my whereabouts. I am settled in a small city called Eureka, attending an institution called High School. It is not like the schools at home, mon amie. In fact this is a very social center. One of the affairs happened on September 15, known as a "Student Body Dance." It was a gay party. The young ladies were almost as artistically attired as in my old dear France. A wonderful orchestra played, and the punch was of the shade which Madame Cozette used. You remember the sensation? These Americans do enjoy themselves almost as much as my Parisian relatives. Well Chere Amie, more later of Les Soirees. Ton Amie Devouee, CLEMENTINE. Eureka, Cal. September 22, 1916. Ma Chere: I am glad you understand the English so well. There is no French spoken here, and I must try to write in the American style. Tonight I was again at that institution of learning. This time it was a very queer performance. They called it a "Freshman Reception." It was far from my idea of la grande reception, for here les pauvres enfants were made to stand on an elevated platform and perform for the assemblage. They were made to represent a circus company. There was a grand parade in which the "Frosh" band figured. I assure you, mon amie, that it was a melodious com- position which they rendered. After much ado and merrimcnt, the whole circus company was served with ice cream by the Juniors. The "juniors" are another class in the high school, ma chere, and it is with them that I was interested when this took place. Your Parisian cousin will soon be a real American, but do not worry be- cause I will write to you often about les Americans and their affairs. Yours devotedly, CLEMENTINE. Eureka, Cal. December 22, 1916. Ma Chere Amie: It is a long time since I have received a letter from you. It must be that the war is affecting the mail system. Here in America we do not have much time to think about the war, be- cause it seems that every small part of the great Nation has its own business and society. Even in the school of learning which I am still attending, we are con- tinually being invited to some gay partie. In December, it was the Alumni Dance, or to you, le bal des gradues. As always, here in America, it was a most festive occasion. Favors were given the 76 THESEQUOIA dancers during what were called prize dances. Gay colored streamers were also made use of, and these brought to close a joyous evening. It was rivaled only, mon amie, by the banquet given in honor of the de- parting ones, who have acquitted themselves creditably. During this reception, the very intelligent ones favored the guests with toasts, and a dancing party concluded the entertainment of the honored ones. It is a very entrancing life, that we Americans lead, and when I am sure that these letters reach you I shall tell you more of the bright side of a student's life. Devotedly yours, CLEMENTINE. Eureka, Cal. April 13, 1917. Ma bien aimee: You are wondering why I have not written for so long, but it is because so much of my time is occupied by attending the school which I have told you of before. For four weeks the schools of the city were closed in order to prevent the spreading of a disease called 'scarlet feverf Now you see there have been no more of the parties or receptions. All of our time is filled with the studies which were forgotten during our vacation. But I think by the time this reaches you, ma chere, we will again be back to the old social life. The 'Seniors' will depart in june, and there will be a week of receptions and parties. Also the entering class will be entertained with the 'Freshmen' who have been here since january. I will tell you of these later, mon amie. Toute a toi, CLEMENTINE. 4 9 . eeaiil' '5 gg G Q ,. QQQQI 'fir ci", Q1 C2 V IU an If 5 we IIA' ll ll Organization ofthe Orchestra We were very fortunate on the opening of the fall term to have with ns Mr. Williams who was skilled in music. School was hardly started when an orchestra was formed under Mr. VVilliams' leadership. This orchestra met two mornings each week at 8:15, and had such good practice that, by the time of the Freshman reception two months later, it was able to render several fine selec- tio11s. The music for the High School play in December was also furnished by the orchestra. Mr. VVillian1s' illness and departure left our orchestra without a leader. Since Mr. Goodenow came, there have been several attempts to reorgan- ize the orchestra and organize a band, but as yet these attempts have failed.

When school started again the spirit for a choral society was so high that a girls' club of over seventy voices was organized under the leadership of Mr. Misner. At the cominenceinent exercises of the mid-winter class the choral rendered a couple of very fine selections. They have plans laid for many programs in the future and we wish them much success. fi ,f 1,72 ,Gy Q""'?

The floor, being slippery, caused many "spills" and missteps, but despite this both teams played exceptionally well. At the end of the first half the score stood 22 to 10 in favor of Ferndale. In the second half Eureka outelassed her opponent, making 13 points to l:C1'llilZl.lC'S 7. But this was not enough to overcome Ferndale's lead.

E THE SEQUOIA THE RAPE OF THE NOTES QAlways apologizing to Pope.j What sweet and amorous words from pencils flow, And of the mighty troubles that they sow, I sing. This verse is for our English Muse, So halting meter and limping rhyme excuse. Say what strange motive, Goddess, then could make A High School youth two notes to take? Oh say what stranger cause not yet in sight Could make two persons such sweet missives write? All still and silent was the assembly hall, Save where the little whispers rose, and books did fall The teacher made a visit to the anteroom Where roisterers and talkers meet their doom. Belinda roseg and quick the chance did seize To toss a note on Hector Folly's knees. So Hector read the note, his hopes ran high, He seized a pen and hasten'd to reply. One yard from Hector's side sat Patrick Mear, A footballer who scorned the name of fear. Although our Pat smooth blarney could recite, A tender note was beyond his-powers to write. He knew in scribbling honey'd words, and dear, Hector and Belinda were without a peer. He thought to learn the epistle writing trade, To take the notes and see how they were made. Pat grasped the notes, and from the room he started, Up sprang our Hector, and for the robber darted. The amazed Belinda blushed and paled and sighed, Then Hector stamped his foot and fiercely cried, "By the assembly dictionary, I swear, Unless you drop those notes I'll pull your hair, Return, Oh wretch, the missives clasp'd in your fist, Or I'll get mad and slap you on the wrist." So spake brave Hector, Patrick stopped right short, The pillager turned and said with angry snort, "While ink from fountain pen in cascades flies, So long as our noble lads wear bright hue'd ties, Or while 'You please pass down,' the teachers say, In morning study-halls when students play. When all our U. S. History class gets 'one', And when the football team from a mouse will run, When all these things have hap't and four-score more, Then Iill give up the notes, but not before. The Principal enter'd and took the notes away, THE SEQUOIA Down sat the heroes without a word to say. And twice the Principal re-read each note, He shook his head, and slow and sad did quote, "Oh shades of oats, Germea and HO, Of all the mush this is the worst I know. However, I'll read the notes to all of you So you can see how awful are billets-doux. "Beloved Hector," so the heading ran, "My dearest, ownliest love, my handsome man, The sight of you has healed my aching heart, Which broke last night when we did sadly part, I tried to study, but on the printed page Your own dear face appear'd a desert mirage, I went outdoors and gaz'd at the starlit sky, Thinking, 'Love like ours can never die.' Of history, English, German, I don't know much, With the teachers I'm very afraid I'll get in Dutch- I know Lincoln cross'd the Delaware in seventy-five, But outside that, I don't know I'm alive. Yet teachers I'll face, without fear of doom, If you'll walk home with me this afternoon. Time flies as fast as light, so I will close, I remain your sweetheart, Belinda Sacerosef' The note of Hector's thus began, "Oh deariest one, There lives no happier being under the sun, Not Ceasar when the Chinese Empire he gainid, Or Fortuna's baseball team whene're it rain'd, Not pardon'd prisoners just 'scap'd the noose, Or tippler refreshed with joy-making juice: Were ever so lucky as I, or felt such bliss, How could you think a walk with you I'd miss? The coach said, 'Everyone out for practice to-night Or else to the roof to fly a little kite.' Let coaches, janitors, teachers, perish all, But always I'll be at your beck and callf' Here ended the note, the reader had to stop. He paused and said: "I will let this matter drop, Fine literature it is, so the notes I'll keep, But other writers of notes, a dire fate shall meet." v Some thought the notes were toss'd in basket or fire, But no! They're with other things students desire, Where "ones" and "two's" get lost under inkspots, And "fours" and "fives" are kept in carload lots. Then cease, fair lovers, the loss of the notes to mourn For all my story was in imagination born. -Argyle Desmond, 7 '17 THESEQUOIA 103 TAKEN FROM EX- PAPERS 1.

He said, "Sure," She said, "I wish you would stop at Mr. Gannon's Shop, and get three large bone buttons, the kind with two small holes in them. They are for my new bathing suit, you know 3 just tell him who I am and it will be all right. You need not pay for them." Now the artist was a bachelor and he had never bought anything but collar buttons before. So on the way to the store he kept repeating the instructions he had received. Eager to relieve his mind, he rushed up to Mrs. Gannon. "I want three bone buttons for a small bathing suit, with two large holes in it. just tell me who I am and it will be all right."-Exchange.

"How dare you hold my hand," I said. "Do not make bold with me." "The submarine went speeding on, The look-out heaved a sigh, For through the fog banks to the left A smoke stack he did spy- And to the captain down below, His voice came loud and clear, 'The ship Cheyenne lies off to port, Now that seems rather queerf Said Captain Bogush in command, 'Follow her quick, my man !' Then came a ghastly, sickening thudg She landed deep in sand. THE SEQUOIA And then there came both fog and wind, And it was wondrous cold, The waves broke o'er the submarine, The crew crouched in the hold. 'Too late, too late !' the lad did cryg 'The stack which I see still, Is not the good old ship Cheyenne, But the Samoa Mill!' The life savers, both hard and long, Did work these men to save, They came ashore in Breeches-buoy, Through many a chilly wave.

It's getting pretty bad, when boys, With knicker-bockers small, And girls with pig tails flying out, Do decorate our hall.

Your answers are enough to make a person's hair stand on end. Peterson-Well, mine does. The Gong had sounded loud and long, And throughout the hall ineone great throng, Students hurry to their destination, Each prepared for a bright recitation. There's a hum of voices great and small, There dodging and dashing of big and tall, And one little boy with very big feelings, Fills a Junior's pocket with banana peelings. A six foot Senior with an important air, F rightens a Freshey with a cold glassy stare. And here are those giggling Sophomore girls, With their frivolous ways and beautiful curls. The tardy bell rings, the doors now close. Left empty the hallways in silence dose, But soon a few who are usually late, Go to the office to meet their sad fate. . N. P.
