We miss those who have gone and are glad a few are still with us. The school and the class are proud of all of them-one is now in the army, one graduated at the age of fourteen, one was a base ball star, several played basket hall, and collectively and individually, they took an active part in school life. Let us Wish them success in trying to put into practice their motto, "Find a way or make one."

S. but its memory will live long in the minds of those it leaves behind. .Its forty members will leave a long' list of achievements and honors won. They will be missed in every activity, in society, school life and every branch of athletics. With this class will go point winners in football, basketball, baseball and tennis. The debating' team regrets the loss of a valuable member. The honor roll, too, will lose several of its most constant patrons. Outside of school, also, recent members of this class have met with success. One of its number, lhian Menzies, has answered the call of duty and is a corporal in the United States army at Fort Casey, XYasl1ing'ton. George VValdner has lately joined the colors and is now in Camp Kearney. The class is proud of its soldier members. Wie will miss these friends of ours and we know that they will think more than once of the old E. H. S. But we are glad to see them go, for we know that they are going forth to win higher goals and honors. They have heard the bugle call to higher successes and like good soldiers, they must answer. We bid them Godspeed. I4 EX'l2Rl2T'1' IIROXYX Orchcstrzl 11, 232 Sequoia 1232 "Trelawncy of thc XN'cl1s" 123: "Man from Home" 1333 Class Prcsiclent 143. E'lxI'lEl. ANDERS1 JN "XYil1l Ruse" 133.

The tendency to-day is to be- come radically erudite or overly muscular, For the paramount profit, both, in moderation, are neccessary, for what good is the mind when the body has not the strength to maintain health? Physical perfection naturally leads to mental perfection. This has been proved in the Thornton High School in Illinois where the increase in scholarship was found to be proportional to the increase in physical perfection. This mentality secured, the training maintains it. It keeps the body in such a condition, that the workings of the mind are not impeded by poor health. VVhen inserted in the midst of the school work it serves as a pleasant relief from mental strain and makes the mind clearer and more comprehensive when the student returns to the class room. D. R. Tait McKenzie, Major of the Royal Army Medical corps, says, "It is a brain-quickening training: it enables men to assimilate instruction in their other work more rapidly than beforefi This fact has been brought home to the Eureka High School by the intro- duction of physical training under Mr Stanley Dougan last fall At present we have all that could be wished for to develop our mentality-a good staff of teach- ers, up-to-date methods of instruction and a beautiful, well equipped building. For the development of our physique we have the best of instructors and appar- atus. But we are very cramped. The four hundred students take the training in a little section of the boys' basement, where the noise, a necessary factor in gym- nasium work, is distracting, to say the least, to the teachers and classes endeavor- ing to carry on recitations in the rooms above. If the citizens of Eureka wish the high school to turn out young men and women that their community may well be proud of as examples of physical and mental fitness, they owe it to their boys and girls to provide for means of forming a physical foundation upon which may be built the super-structure of superior scholarship. just a Zllord VVe ofthe staff are in a position to quote that platitude attributed to Sher- man. All of our pet plans have been met with the business managers "Costs too much." It has become habit to blame everything on the war. The war should in no way affect the subject-matter, so in view of that fact we have endeavored to make it atone for the abandomnent of other features because of expense. We have endeavored to make the annual representative of the work of the school for the year and reflective of the spirit of the school. In doing this we have been assisted by many from the school, three members of the faculty in particular. Miss Henry, as faculty adviser, has worked and planned with us and because of her timely counsel and untiring efforts, we owe a large amount of credit to her. We will never forget this friendly association and advice. Miss Helmer, head of the English department, has personally supervised the work and arrangement of the literary department, which is indicative of the daily work being done by the several classes under her direct and indirect supervision. The Art Department, with Miss Woodman as its instructor, is to be thanked for the art work to this issue. For the help of these and others who have in various ways lent their aid, we are truly grateful. VVe hope that we have overcome all obstacles and have accomplished our purpose of making this edition of the "Sequoia" truly representative of the Eureka High School. Zilbv a Utopian Dream To the visitor walking up J Street, the broad expanse of nothing but dirt to the south of the school neutralizes the beauty of the building and immediate grounds. In the building of our new gymnasium we could with hardly any additional expense make this part of the grounds sightly and equal to any in the state. A large, for it must be large, two-story gymnasium, could be erected on the eastern end of the athletic field, with a swimming pool on the lower floor and a large hall that may be used for dances and other social functions on the second floor, thus saving the main building from unnecessary tear. Around the field itself we need grandstands, protective, serviceable and sightly. Then would our high school rival all others in the advantages granted its students. Then would we be even prouder of our school than ever and then would we work to make our school prouder of us. Why must this condition remain visionary?

"I wonder what ole Uncle joe will say when he discovers his spuds have disappeared F" whispered freckle-faced Fred. . "Well, I bet he won't laugh," said Bob Hunter. "Serve the old tight wad right," ejaculated Fred in a decided tone. "He had no business to go and butt in and spoil our I-Iallowe'en pranks." The boys were planning to rob "ole Uncle joe's" potato patch. Mr. Thomas, better known to the country folks as ole Uncle Joe, lived with his wife, Aunt Mary, as she was commonly called, on the outskirts of a small New Hampshire village where they earned a good living from their little farm. Ole Uncle Joe had caught the boys last Hallowe'en trying to tear down the parson's fence and ever since then the boys bore a grudge against him. "Now listen," said Fred, who appeared to be the commander-in-chief of the job, 'tif you fellows do what I say, we'll make a success of this here job. We'll sneak thru this field and that will bring us to the back of the farm. Then we'll crawl thru the fence, and then, for the spuds." After Fred had given his orders. the little company hurried thru the field and came to the high board fence which bounded the back of the farm. Fred peeped thru a knot hole in the fence. "Come on fellers, there's no light." They scrambled over the fence and came to the potato patch. Bob found an old shovel and the boys went to digging with a vim. Everything was silent. The village clock struck nine. "Hush-h-h." whispered Fred. "what was that noise Fl' "lfVhere P" whispered the rest. The boys looked about, and beheld the bent form of old Uncle joe leaning on a cane on the porch. "Well, boys, I am so glad," he began. The boys looked at each other. What did he intend to do with- them? "You see,'l he went on, "I was just saying to Aunt Mary this morning that we ought to have those spuds dug. We intended to hire the work done. The rheumatism has been bothering me so lately that I have not been able to do much work. Then you come and are digging those spuds for us. That sure is good of you." just then plump Aunt Mary appeared in the doorway, rustling in her stiff gray dress and large white starched apron. Her white hair was curled under a small white cap. "Why, boys," she exclaimed, peering at them benignly over her glasses, "Do come in and get a bite to eat. You must be hungry after such hard work." THE s13QUo1f1 g 27 The boys forgot their fright and went sheepishly into the house with their shoe: covered with mud and their hands thrust awkwardly in their pockets. Aunt Mary passed around plates heaped high with fresh doughnuts and ginger snaps, while ole Uncle joe told them stories of days gone by. "I guess you boys were trying to heap coals of fire upon my head," drawled ole Uucle Joe, "I reckon I was rather hard when I spoiled your I-Ialloweien tricks, for boys will be boys." VVhen the boys were leaving, Fred said to ole Uncle Joe and Aunt Mary, "W'e'll finish the job to-morrow." And when the sun went down the next day, ole Uncle joe! potatoes had been dug and were put safely away in his store room. Che Qld aid's Hpple Cree William Ellis, '18. It was in the afternoon of a sultry, sunshiny October day. jimmy Cleve- land sat in the old rocking chair on the back porch, his nose buried in "Treasure Island." He was eating Jonathan apples and throwing the cores'at the sleepy old Tom cat snoozing in the sun. Out in the yard the pile of redwood eagerly beckoned to Jimmy, but he could not afford to risk his life by inviting sunstroke, especially since his mother was not home. "Treasure Island" was good and so were the jonathans, but they did not have the flavor of those green, small, withered apples "swiped" from Miss Perkins' apple tree, so he decided to get some to help out the story. jimmy got out of the chair, stretched himself and strolled around the house and down the street until he came to Miss Perkins' house. which was the last one on Main Street. Now he must exercise care in slipping by the brown shuttered windows for the eagle eye of Miss Perkins might spy him. If she saw him, all was off. He worked his way cautiousy along the fence to the tree which stood in the corner of the field opposite the house. All was Well. jimmy climbed the crooked tree and prepared to enjoy himself: he filled his pockets with apples, ate a few, and "banged" a few at Johnsons cow which was grazing in the field. He then slipped down the tree to start for home: but at the foot of the tree he stopped in horrcr. There in front of him. as if she had risen out of the ground. was Miss Perkins. She had an axe in her hand and on her face was a look which boded ill to jimmy. Jimmy felt weak and the apples lay heavily on his stomach and in his pock- ets, but there was no getting out of this predicament. Visions of horrors and sud- den death floated before his eyes. Then Miss Perkins spoke. "James," said she, "I have a load of pine wood in my back yard that needs splitting. Exercise after meals is very beneficial. Here is the axe." She thrust the axe into -Iimmy's weak hands. I-Ie took it and followed her to the mountain of pine. "Now, young man. start in on that pile and don't stop until I tell you. Per- haps that'll settle the apples you ate." She went away, sat down in the shade of the cool porch and kept a watchful eye on Jimmy. He, toiling in the blazing sun, with a ponderous axe. trying to split adamantine knots, thought of his own cool porch and "Treasure Island" and decided that jonathan apples from the store were infir-itely superior to green ones from Miss Perkins' tree. Che Gecape Harry Ross,. '19 He was long and lean, with slim legs, a narrow tapering nose, and his coat, which covered him from head to foot was of tawny grey. At times his eyes had a dreamy expression, but more often they registered fear. Now they were sadg more than that, they were hungry. For five days and nights he had eaten nothing but a small bird. And now he was telling his mother about his troubles. I think Mother Nature heard and understood him, for at last he stopped howling and galloped away. In the bright moonlight I could clearly see him as he glided down one hill and up another. At the top of the second hill he stopped and howled once more and then dropped out of sight. I left my place by a clump of brush where I had been watching, and fol- lowed. My friend was going down the long slope of the second hilland there was another with him. Thinking I would see no more of the animals, I kicked the ice off my skis and started for home. The soft sharp crunch of the snow under my skis and pole told me it was at least twenty below. I had gone about two miles and was just raising my head over a steep little hill when I again saw my friend and his com- panion. They were bounding along exceeding the speed limit by about twenty miles, and in front of them was a streak of white that I could hardly see. I decided it must be a Jack rabbit. They were going around the hill, and the rabbit, not far enough ahead to try any of his tricks, was fast losing ground. It certainly looked as if the coyotes were going to break their fast soon. Then the two long heads of the pursuers went together for a few seconds. I don't know what passed between them. but at once one of the coyotes doubled on the trail and circled the hill the other way, and they had the rabbit between them. My sympathy was of course with the hunted, so I took a stride and a shove with my pole and in a second was flying down the hill toward the hunters and the hunted yelling like an Indian on the war path. The coyotes heard me firstg the rabbit was too busy to hear anything. Naturally the coyotes, for they are all cowards, gave up the chase and just as naturally the rabbit escaped a horrible and sudden end. I guess it was a mean trick, but 11111 sure the rabbit prays for me every night now. . The next night I went back to the scene of battle and there, sitting on the hill. silhouetted against the moon that was just rising, was my friend and he was telling Mother Nature that still he was hungry.

G., '19 Battle Royal Ted Jackman, ,19. He was a full grown silvertip grizzly bear. He had been caught in the Rocky Mountains of North America and taken on board a ship bound for Africa. During a great storm at sea, the ship was wrecked upon the wild coast of South Africa. In the confusion of the moment the bear's cage became unlocked and he escaped. A great wave sweeping over the ship carried him kicking and cough- ing iar upon the beach. For several days he wandered in the dense jungles of South Africa, seeing and hearing hundreds of strange animals who always fled upon his approach. So, savage and hungry, he now stood in the center of a little clearing in the jungle. He was a huge shaggy creature covered with rough, hristling hair. He stood nearly as tall as a horse and his shoulders were like knotted bands of steel and his paws were armed with long sharp claws, hard as iron, which could rend and tear the life out of the toughest foe. VVith one blow he could fell an ox. In his jaws were long terrible teeth, now snapping together like steel shutters. As the bear stood there, his quick ear detected a low rustling sound coming toward him. Then his eye caught a slight waving of the bushes made by some huge body creeping steadily toward him. The teeming jungle fell silent. Not a breath of wind stirred, not even a' bird chirped. Everything seemed waiting, wait- ing in a tense silence. Something was stalking him. He, the King and absolute monarch of the Rocky Mountains, was being stalked as if he were a timid deer and would run at the first sound. Deep down in his great chest fumbled a low growl, terrible in its ferocity. The hair on his shoulders lifted, and his red blood-shot eyes gleamed with rage, while from between his cruel teeth flecks of foam appeared. The huge black lion had started his charge at what he believed to be an easy prey, but the bear instead of running, nimbly side-stepped his rush and smote him a terrible blow which ripped the lion's Hesh from head to shoulder. The lion, thus surprised, was knocked a dozen feet away with the blood pouring from him in streams. He was no coward, and this repulse served only to enrage him. With a roar he sprang at the grizzly, only to meet a blow in the side that broke several ribs. The grizzly now charged and caught the l.ion's head and neck in his terrible arms which tightened around them like iron bands. The lion, unused to this way of fighting and with his head caught in the grizzly's huge arms, which were slowly choking him to death, was at a decided disadvantage. Ile could do nothing but claw. This he did like a huge cat, ripping the flesh on the bear's sides and legs. But gradually his struggles grew weaker and weaker and at last stopped alto- gether. The bear then rose from the lion's dead body, and covered with blood. roared a challenge at the wilderness. After the last echo had died away the jungle began again its busy life--life under a new king. just Pals Leota Monroe, '20 "Be sure to be at the big pine at eight," were Ted's parting words. "I bet I'll be there first, replied Jack, as he turned down the lane towards his home, On the Saturday before Easter, a bare footed boy, with a freckled face and a shock of reddish hair, climbed the pasture fence, and joined his friend at the big tree which guarded the road leading to Pinesville. "Bill says to look out fer 'Redf " Jack exclaimed breathlessly, as soon as he had reached his friend, "he's agoin' to follow us to try to find our patch." "He thinks he's mighty smart," exclaimed Ted, "but we'll fool him. We'll go a different way." "Gosh, he'll be sore," jack said, as they took the trail through the wood- land. For a mile they followed the canyon bed, and then came into a thick grove of redwoods where growing beneath the tall trees were delicate white lilies, a species of orchid. The boys had found these flowers years before, and as they grew about Easter Tide, had christened them "Easter Lilies." f'Ain't they beauts this year ?" exclaimed Jack excitedly, and "Won't Red be sore when he sees us with 'em P" ' "You bet he willf' replied Ted, "but ain't it funny that these flowers don't grow any place else ?', "You're right, Ted." Jack answered, "but I guess that's what makes 'em so pretty, being so scarce." The boys soon gathered the lilies, and then threw themselves down upon a mossy bank to rest. 'Tm starving let's eat z" suggested Jack. "Me, toof' agreed Ted, as he unwrapped the thick slices of brown bread which he had brought from home. "I wish we had brought a whole loaff, said jack, as they finished the last crumb, "but we had better start home before our lilies wilt." With their arms laden with the fragrant burdens, the boys tramped through the redwood grove, and came out on the dusty highway. just ahead of them was "Redl' Wilts, the town bully, alone and very sullen over his fruitless search for the mysterious lily bed. "There's 'Redf madder'n a hornet," Ted whispered. Let's go right past him so he can see our flowers." "Gee, but that will sure make him sore 1" laughed jack, "if we weren't to- gether, he'd beat us up." - "He's afraid to touch us when we're together," Ted said. "but remember the time you was alone, an' he licked you?" "I sure do," Jack agreed, "but then the next day we both caught him and licked him good.- What would we do without each other, Ted ?" L I B I, fl THE SEQUOIA sr "Wouldn't be much use livin' then, I reckon," Jack's pal replied. The boys brushed past "Red" with the expected result, and then hurried home to their waiting suppers. A year had gone swiftly by and again it was the day before Easter Sunday. All that morning Ted had wandered restlessly through the house, his thoughts over in the church yard where his little pal lay. "Aren't you going after lilies today?" asked Ted's mother, "You know we will need them to decorate the church with to-morrow." "Oh, maybe Iill go after a while." Ted said listlessly. "Here is your lunch. and you might ask -some of the boys to go, too." "Why mother," Ted turned around abruptly and faced his mother. "Do you think I'd ever take anyone else to me an' Jacks patch? We never told no one, and I ain't goin' to be the one who does tell." He turned quickly to conceal his emotion, and started towards the old trail. The other boys did not question him, and even "Red" spoke kindly as the little fellow passed by. Ted walked slowly up the canyon bed and came to the redwood grove about noon. The fragrant lilies rose above the moss and ferns as slender and lovely as ever. Ted broke one blossom from its swaying stem, but its beauty was lost on his dim eyes. He then tried to cat his lunch, but after taking one bite, he threw his bread away, and started to gather the lilies. Supper time came at the old farm house, but the boy had not returned. "Hadn't you better go to meet him ?" Ted's mother anxiously asked her husband. Lighting the lantern, Ted's father went down the path towards the church yard. Pausing before a fresh mound he held the lantern above his head. The dim rays of light fell upon a little grave strewn with withered lilies, and a tiny boy asleep beside the new made grave. "Just as I thought," ejaculated Ted's father, and as he lifted the tiny form to his breast, he muttered almost reverently, "Poor little chap, he's as loyal as ever to his Pal." , The possessor of a good book need never be lonely.-E.

One summer morning Brownie sallied majestically forth from his kennel in search of adventure. Long ago he had defeated all the other dogs of the neigh- borhood. This morning, like Alexander, he longed for other worlds to conquer. Swaggering down the garden walk, Brownie suddenly spied a rabbit. Glad of any excitement, he immediately gave chase. He dashed confidently thru the brush, but suddenly stopt. Here was something still more interesting. About two feet from the ground, firmly attached to some brush, was a round, grey, ob- ject. Thrusting out his inquisitive nose, Brownie sniffed it warily. "Woof! woof!" Bristling his back pugnaciously, he barked a defiant challenge. Then he waited. All was silent. He must investigate this strange object which neither growled or barked. Drawing up his feet. he sprang upon it. Much to his surprise, it was entirely crushed beneath his weight. Brownie turned away in disgust. VV hat was the use to trouble with anything that could not fight? Suddenly Brownie felt something sting his ear. The air was full of little dark objects. They flew at him from all directions. In vain did he snap and snarl. They stung his foot, his nose, his head. To his doggish thots these strange, darting objects were quite inconceivable. They were everywhere and nowhere. Nev- er had he encountered such an enemy. At last. nearly frantic from pain, he raced thru the brush to a pond where he rolled over and over in the water. A half hourllater Brownie crept meekly into his kennel, quite content to let the world go on in peace. 25 Z3 Start at the beginning and finish.-E. G., 'l8. Put your school first, not yourself.-A. S.

Pen Portraits EARS Mae Lord, '17 The one thing that distinguished Peter Monroe from all other patrons of the "Cherry Pie Grill" was his immense ears. Others may have had the same rather "poppy', blue eyes, the same wide nose, the same cupid's bow mouth, the same stiff collar, and the same shiny suit, but none could have the same monstrous ears. They extended down to his collar, up to his pompadour, and out past his head. They were so big they were flabby, and almost doubled over like an ele- phant's. Peter's mouth had acquired an unnatural, stern expression from his con- stant effort to appear unconscious of the comments on his ears. His face was in a continual blush because of these remarks, when any stranger entered. But one night Peter left "The Cherry Pie" a happy man. A new waitress had served him, and not once had she glanced at his ears. PRINCESS SILVER FOX Frances Smith, 'lS She was squatted upon the dirt floor, a little, old, wizened squaw of about one hundred winters. Her brown, parched face was a myriad of wrinkles, while her lips were dull and cracked. She munched upon an acorn with brown, tooth- less gums. Occasionally she squinted at me with her faded brown eyes and mum- bled something to herself in her native tongue. Her 'eyes were as blank as the re- mainder of her face, which had no more expression than one of the slabs of dried fish that hung from the ceiling. From somewhere in her dirty, ragged dress she brought forth an old clay pipe which she lighted from the dying embers of the smudgy little fire and contentedly puffed my precious ideals of a princess up into circles of hazy smoke. SHADOVVS ON THE GOLD Howard Christie, '18 The dull red glow of the smoldering embers on the hearth cast wavering shadows over the board walls, and outlined the lone figure of the bent old man at the table. A gust of wind rattled the solitary window and stirred the fire into a flickering blaze. It lighted up the old man's wrinkled countenance, disclosing his scanty fringe of scraggly white hair and his washed-out brown eyes, looking down at the shining pieces of gold with a mingled air of exultation and awe. His face was drawn and shriveled, as were his arms and clawlike hands, thru which he weighed each gold piece in turn, and then let it jingle into the chamois bag on the table. The fire died down and the outline of the old man's face was hardly distin- guishable except in the intervals when the firelight cast its weird shadows on him and on the shimmering gold pieces that had wedged themselves into his very soul.

Gtcbings in Inh AUTUMN MOODS Lorain McCabe, '20. Autumn is laying her golden hands on the landscape. The maple leaves Hutter softly down upon the warm brown breast of the earth. Great flocks of little birds gather together in the trees, twittering a joyful anticipation of the journey south. Now and then they rise in the air as if trying their wings before the long Hight. Belated little squirrels are scampering merrily to their holes, their jaws stuffed with nuts for their winter store. It is the twilight of summer, a soft happy twilight, slowly fading into winter. Autumn is laying ruthless hands on the land. Fierce little gusts of wind are tearing the faded leaves from the trees. The ugly brown branches touch each other with protesting squeaks and groans. Large flocks of noisy little birds twitter in the trees. They flutter around as though anxious to be gone from a land that is becoming bleak, bare, and cold. Several belated squirrels scold angrily from the trees, and rush to their holes with nuts and grain to secure themselves against the coming winter. It is the twilight of the summer, a cold, bleak twilight, fast fading into a colder winter. a o Q 0 Autumn has come to the country. All the freshness of green pastures and the crisp beauty of the trees, are gone. Mournfully the soft .autumn winds whisper thru the branches and gently pull the red and gold leaves from the trees. The small birds have gathered in flocks for the long journey south. They rise and then settle back again as tho reluctant to leave the land where they have spent the long, happy summer. Several little squirrels hurry to and fro as tho in a hurry to get in their winter store before the summer is entirely gone. It is the twilight of the summer, a soft, sorrowful twilight, which slowly fades away, and winter comes in. Che Qcean Janet Jewett, '18, Hanging over the beach was a cold, grey mist, through which the moon occasionally shot sharp, steely rays of light. Far out beyond the boisterous waves of the shore, was the gloomy hull of a large fishing smack. One lonely light pierced the surrounding gloom. The water about the boat frowned darkly. Inky black waves capped with white were forming between the boat and the shore. In the distance they loomed up. great greenish mountains of water, but grew smaller as they neared the shore. where they rolled up on the sand with a swish, broke with a roar and retreated. tossing the salty spray high in the air. The air was damp and chilly and filled with the endless pounding of the sea. Che Ledge on Pilot Roch Howard Christie, ,18. The ledge was narrow, extremely so, even for a sure footed guide, as was the Cree half-breed, Jacques. For three miles it skirted the perpendicular face of Pilot Rock and was the high road for all the animals who made their homes in the rocky uplands. Below, the green tops of the high cedars pierced the fog, but were so far below that they were indistinct in the hazy early morning air. The valley with its shining thread of silver, of the previous evenings sunset, was hidden by the rolling banks of fog that drifted everywhere beneath. Above, a jumble of mighty granite boulders intermingled with stunted pines and straggling bunch grass, gave an inaccessible refuge for bear, moose, and mountain sheep. Jacques had traveled the ledge many times, and its wonders had long since ceased to in- terest him. His long, swinging stride had almost carried him over the trail, when upon rounding a sharp elbow in the ledge, he became the silent spectator of a death duel. A huge bull moose and giant Grizzly were struggling for the right of the high road. The ledge was too narrow for either to turn, and the heart of the Indian went out to the fighting Grizzly, for if he lost, the guide lost, too, because the Indian and the Grizzly were going in the same direction. The battle was short but furious and ended when the infuriated Grizzly rushed the moose and sent him hurtling over the cliff and down, down to the hidden valley below. With a shake of his shaggy head and a warning growl, the bear shambled away with jacques following at a respectful distance. Something Zilorth Getting Up Gai-ly for lVilliam Ellis, '1S. Yesterday morning I got up at five o'clock. and went into the garden. In the east, the sun crept up into the sky over the brow of the brown, seamed hill, about a quarter of a mile from the house, bathing it in the misty, golden glory of sunrise. It touched the dead trunk of an old redwood, halfway up the hillside, with its splendor. At the foot of the hill, lay the yellow hayfield, brightening under the flood of golden light. In the garden the rows of beet leaves reflected the sun- shine and the dewy carrot tops sparkled like jeweled diadems. The glistening leaves of the bean plants and pea vines were bound to each other by pearly, silver corded, spider webs. Even the lowly grass and weeds, covered with dewdrops, sparkled and flashed with the irridescence and scintillation of diamond pendants. 'Che mater front at Night Ralph Conant, '18 - It was a bitter cold night in January. The piercing wind stirred the deep blue waters and the white caps sparkled as they danced along. The moon was just rising and the heavens were studded with stars. Along the wharves the tugs and ships were resting after their long day's work. In midstream a few lights shone from a moving steamer. Across the bay the lights of Samoa and the great red column of smoke from the slab fire were reflected upon the waters of the bav. Toward the north the lights of Arcata twinkled merrily across the water while here and there stray lights peeped out from Fairhaven and New Fira. A row boat pulied out from the slip and was soon lost in the darkness of the bay. Soon all was still again except for the lapping of the waves against the piles. Summer in the Pines Edmund Chisholm, '18, It was the middle of summer in The Great Pine Forest. The slender pines quivered in the silent, burning heat. My ears heard only the padded taps of my dusty shoes as I wound in and out along the little forest trail. I saw a little smooth surface on the bark of an arrow-like pine and stopped to carve my initials. just above me a big, gray tail, nearly covering a tiny squirrel, brushed along a green limb and leaped to another tree. I listened. Now the air seemed breathing with faint musical sounds. Three little eanaries rattled about on a heap of twigs and dry leaves near a rotting log. Other noisy little birds hung to little shoots of grass and picked at the dry seeds. I heard a tick, tick, tick over by a half decayed pine. Presently a large black woodpecker with a white crown walked around the pitted surface of the tree. I-Ie scrutinized the surface about him for a moment, then darted away among the pines. Little brown birds hopped about close to the ground in the dry bushes. . Then I heard the faint ticking of my watch. I looked at it and found it was late. I finished my initials: then started out again along the little trail. Again all I heard was the patter of my shoes and the swish, swish of :ny corduroys as my legs brushed by each other. IOierre's Home Helen Ryan, 'l8. The sumptuous adobe home of Pierre. a French Canadian peasant, nestled in a productive and fertile valley. Friendly smoke caressed the thatched roof of the cottage, then rolled away into the azure blueness of the beautiful northern summer morning. Behind the house, white feathery clouds came down and nes- tled on the trees which led to the laborer's pasture. There, four colts frisked and frolicked joyfully. The low, ambling outhouses seemed to swagger up to the Very kitchen door, from which came forth the odor of freshly baked ginger bread, while the madame fairly raced the egg beater to the tune of a French ballad. As I rounded the corner of the front of the house. a delicate breath of sweet mignon- ette reached my nostrils. Only a step farther and my eyes were fairly dazzled by the wealth of golden marigolds and ruddy hollyhocks. A cat indolently preened himself on the rope doormat. but now and then he shifted his eyes in search of a stray robin which might innocently be pouring forth his joy of life in the lilac bush. The whole farm breathed forth an atmosphere of plenty. Sonnet on Democracy Not the idle vision of a fleeting hour! Or a creation false that cannot last!

Chats with Upper Claesmen QOn the Familiar Essay Stylej GROWING UP Margaret Skinner, '19 Are you grown up, growing up, or just beginning to grow up? There are transitional stages in history, transitional stages in art, transitional stages in literature, but no one ever refers to the transitional stage in human life, which should be designated by its proper title-growing up. I myself am just emerging from the borders of this realm, and feel myself an authority to write upon its mis- eries. The grown up stage is beyond me, and the "beginning to grow up" stage is too painful to write upon. Growing up is something like spring fever. It comes without any warning, takes you hard, and leaves you weak and weary from its ravages. Let us examine the symptoms. Some morning you wake up to find that your elbows are more angular, your hair straighter, and that you have more bones to the square inch than ever before. Scrawny and long legged "thirteen" seems a long way from ladylike and beautiful "sixteen" that you have heard so much about. The growing up has commenced. Your mind is the seat of unrest during this stage. "You want what you want when you want it," in other words, you want what you can't have, and you don't want to do what anyone else wants. You snap at everyone like a very bad tempered poodle dog. You are growing up. The first Christmas you pass is a nightmare. I shall never forget my first "growing up" Christmas. I received no dolls g of course, I really didn't want dolls. I was growing up, you understand. I received fancy articles, silk stockings, and trinkets that would make me dance with joy today. Strange as it may seem, those gifts pleased me about as much as a history examination. I was growing up, you see. I remember shedding several briny tears on my pillow that night before dropping into troubled sleep. Then the clothes-oh me, oh my! The factory people seem to have for- gotten all about that transitional period between childhood and girlhood. Skirts are too long, waists too short, sleeves too tight, and your figure too ungainly. Mother always spends the better part of Saturday in letting down, taking up, and remodeling. Let's try the hats--you can find all manner of children's-too small in the headsize, and too short in the brim. You can find all you want or rather don't want, of young ladies' hats, with stickups in front, ribbons behind, and feather clusters on the side. But there are none, none made for girls who are not chil- dren, who are not young ladies, but who are just growing up. Your mother complains that you spend hours before the glass d-oing your hair in new and fiendish ways, and yet pin your clothes with safety pins to avoid sewing on a button, your father calls you his "little woman" and "to1nboy" by turns, while your relatives mildly wonder if you wouldn't look better with your skirts lengthened a little. 40 THE SEQUOIA What are the signs that herald a boy's growing up, you ask? Well, from keen observation, I would say that when a boy loses his contempt for the feminine sex, when he begs his mother for long trouseres, and when he begins to wonder whether a red tie or a purple tie will go better with a blue and white striped shirt, he is on his way. People talk about growing old gracefully with many sighs, but I am certain that growing old gracefully is a mere nothing compared to growing up gracefully. The first is an incidentg the latter a continuous occupation. VVhenever I hear people quote, "Turn backward, turn backward, oh, Time in thy flight, Make me a child again, just for tonight." I always want to add, "Please, dear Time, eather a little child or a full fledged young lady, but if you have a spark of human kindness, please do not drop me in that betwixt and between period, known as the 'growing up' stage." On Susceptibility Bruce Gillette, 'l9. A feminine giggle, a masculine roar and the class is in hysterics. Dame Humor is eccentric. The classroom is solemn and quiet. The dry rasping tones of the reader grate upon our unwilling ears. Then some susceptible, volatile, gusliingly effervescent person absorbs an idea. Perhaps it is because of the im- mensity of tl1e idea which has percolated to his brain. Perhaps QI use that word advisedlyl he has an abnormal sense of humor. At any rate the gurgling sounds which emanate from the aforesaid inspired one, do their damage. A look at the afflicted one suffices to set the "ball a-rolling." A female doubles herself up, titters convulsively, and makes bird-like noises which I suppose is laughter. A male roars out a sound resembling the booming of a log jam. The class is infect- ed tthis does not exclude the teacherj and they show it in just as many ways as there are people in the class. One peeking in the door might surmise he was wit- nessing the convulsive and emotional repentance at a revival meeting. But- vaiiety is the spice of life. Silent Calhers Catherine Dickson, '19, Yes, there are silent talkers. I encountered one the other clay. The person sat a seat ahead of me on the auto stage that takes me to and from school. I was rather tired that night and longed for a quiet ride, but all my companions seemed to be in a very jolly mood. I noticed the man ahead who was sitting so quietly and I rather wished I were he. He was reading a late newspaper and his lower lip had a studious droop such as I very often see in school. I watched his eyes and I saw them begin to grow big. I looked at the paper and the head lines read, "Some Talk of a Peace Negotiation." His lower lip went in and a smile flitted over his face. His face said, "My boy, my boy! he may be saved yet." Then he settled more comfortably in his seat with a thoughtful, far away look on his face. M y thoughts seemed to follow his. He was telling me all-but silently. Cn Stages Jessie Dickson, 'l8. Everything, absolutely everything, has been on a stage. I have ridden on stages that have had a cake of ice and a bale of hay in the trunk rack, a trunk and a fireless cooker of tamales on the running boards. a half of a veal and a rocking chair on the engine, and passengers of all ages and descriptions in the tonneau. Some very queer people go on stages. One day a woman rushed up to one of the drivers and asked him if he wouldn't wait until she bought two and a half yards of satin ribbon to match the sample that Aunt Sally Johnsons sister-in-law gave her. The chauffeur said, "VVhyl Why !" several times and then the woman discovered that she had the wrong stage. NVe never knew what became of her and her sample. It is a triumph to ascend to the back seat of our stageg to descend in good order is an art. To get in you must have good control of your feet. It is like walking up the under side of a ladder. You can never tell which foot is going to arrive on top first, but when one does you must hastily throw your books or pack- ages on the seat, fervently embrace the empty air, wave your free foot frantically up and down as if bidding good-bye to the interested onlooker and disappear with a sigh that tells of triumph. Descending is not such an effort, but you must fix your hat on firmly so it will not jolt off, grab your belongings closely to you, bal- ance on the brink of disaster and jump. Sometimes a friendly push makes your landing more precipitous. Amusing conversations of every variety may be overheard on a stage. One morning while pleasantly dreaming, I heard two drummers or "roadmen" as they porrxpously term themselves, discussing queer signs they had seen. One man spoke of the sign that we have all seen in Rohnerville which flaringly announces that "Transient Meals Are Served Here," and of a sign on a Mendocino store which reads, "Soda Vlfater, Indian llaskets, and Other Soft Drinksf' The pompad-onred woman in front was inquiring about the age and studies of one of our freshmen, an Italian was laboriously attempting to make an impression on a pretty junior. "He said and then I said, and then he said," of two elaborately be-powdered girls, The chantings of U. S. History wafted to me from a corner, intermingled with the and through the babble I tried to collect my thoughts and write an essay between the numerous jolts and bumps of the stage. what Happened to 'Zach frost jack Frost came down in the dark of night, And in the morning what a wonderful sight! Half an inch thick lay the frost on the ground, On roofs and fences and all around, It shone and sparkled and gleamedg In the light of the morning it beamed.

Regiments The United States, at the present time, is concerned with organizations. They are necessary to the growth of our country. Eureka High School realizes, also, that the growth of the school depends upon the organizations, which conse- quently are increasing every year. CAMP EUREKA Camp Eureka is beginning to boom with "pep."' Klr. Neighbor has changed the program so that the monthly Student Body meetings are held on Monday mornings instead of after school. This arrangement affords every one a chance to attend. The students are taking an interest in the meetings, which are beginning' to be lively and full of parliamentary tactics.

ASSEM RLY SINGING One of the new and enjoyable features of our school life is the chorus singing in the Assembly each Tuesday and Friday. Miss XfVoodbury has intro- duced many of the new patriotic songs that Our lloys ring in the training camps and trenches, besides others of more musical value. ln March, the Student Rody gave a very fine program for the l'arent-Teacher's Association, which included the favorite songs we have learned. There were two and three part songs of Southern and Spanish origin as well as the more "popular" melodies, and the hearty applause given them showed that others besides ourselves enjoy our "sing-songsf' HARMONY This year, Applied llarniony was one of the new subjects open to our students, and will no doubt continue to be a useful and popular course. The study of harmony includes part singing, sight singing, and har- monization of melodies. Although no geniuses have come to light. the original work accomplished has been most creditable. and we may hear more from it in the future. Rumor whispers that the 4A class song will be composed in the harmony classes. ORCHESTRA An excellent orchestra has again been organized this year under the direction of Mr. Flowers. Two mornings a week one may hear the sound of busy instruments in the music room, and that the work has amounted to some- thing has been proved by the heartily applauded numbers at the 313 entertain- ment, the freshman reception, the debate, and the physical training exhibition. XVe are always glad to hear the orchestra, and we congratulate them upon their marked progress. THE SENIOR QUARTETTE Under the able direction of Miss VVoodbury, a quartette of mixed voices from the 4A class is making rapid progress. They sang "The Mountain Lake," which was well received, before the Parent-Teachers' Associations and the student body. The members are Jessie Jackson, Everett lirown, Esther Cunningham, and 'William Ellis. , T3 65 DUT? ! qigiiflx . l l l l liz: ' I ik ff fl L 'ill' 'xiii f'l,i J ,ff ff! , 1 it ' fl, fl ,fd , H freshman Reception Our Freshman Reception proved a big success. due to the preparation and work of the committee under Mae Lord, who wrote the witches' scene whichlpre- ceded the initiation. The Freshmen after being branded with greenichalk, were led, one by one, up to the platform to have their fate predicted by upper elassmen, who in daily life are Page Cutten and Kenneth Stewart. After the Freshmen had been thus initiated the baby pictures of many of the students and teachers were flashed upon the screen, causing much hilarity and fun. Later in the evening ice cream cornucopias and taffy were served by members of the com- mittee. This reception will long be remembered by the the Freshmen who partici- pated and also by the students, faculty and visitors, who were present. junior- Senior Banquet A The Junior B Class proved themselves apt hosts and liostesses at a ban- quet given to the graduates. The banquet itself was a Hoover affair. A tribute to patriotism and to the graduating class was expressed in the table decorations, our National Colors with the class colors of red and white predominating. Throughout the meal, Old Glory was kept waving from the fortification at one end of the room. A silent tribute was the flag-draped chair reserved in respect to Ralph Smith, who is now in the Army. Included among the guests were the Class advisors of the two classes. Miss Helmer and Hr. XYestcott and l"riueipal and Mrs. Neighbor. Following the dinner, a pleasant lrour was spent in listening to talks which applied patriotic subjects to school life. Kenneth Stewart acted as Toastmaster and several talks were given in response to his call, among the best of which were "Over The Top' by Edward Robinson: "Peace Terms'-' by Mr. Neighbor: "Victory", by Mae Lord, and "The Flag" by Miss llelmer. After this the party adjourned to register, and the remainder of the evening was spent in the "drafting, exempting and training" of citizens, and in listening to music furnished by Donald Phillips, Percy Connick and Robert Johnston. Che first Big frolie To raise money for the completion of their new club house, the members of the Junior X Club gave a moonlight dance on the site of the present Cluh House. The platform was prettily decorated with greens and japanese lanterns, and those not desiring to dance sat around a large bonfire telling jokes and stories. The dancing was carried on until midnight and the old moon rose high in the heavens and smiled down upon the happy couples as they danced in and out. A large crowd attended and all enjoyed themselves from the begin- ning until the music finally died away, and the couples wended their way home- ward. Big Bop Given By juniors One of the most enjoyab-le, although not very well attended, affairs ofour social life at E. H. S. was the dance given by the Junior A Class in the I-ligh School Auditorium. The music was furnished by the Anthony Three-piece Or- chestra, and those who attended voted it a most enjoyable evening, void of mar- ring circumstances. The patronesses were the Misses VVoodbury and Henry of the faculty. Delicious punch was served during the evening by members ,of the 3-A Class, and the closing hours came all too soon. F i if B freshmen Reception On March 1, 1918, the Freshmen B Class was both initiated and entertained by a committee composed of Kenneth Stewart, Robert Johnston, Marion Gross, Dorothy Hubbard, Edmund Chisholm, Miss Potter, Miss Harrison and Miss Stay- ner. The class stunts contest provided interest and fun for the first part of the program, in which Judges McLaren, VV'oo'dbury and Neighbor decided that the 4-A class won by presenting an Oriental court scene with George VValdner as the charming court dancer. The representation of a regular assembly with John Lozcnsky as Mr. Neighbor, deserves especial mention. The "movie', acted by Freshmen stars furnished much amusement, and the Court Scene and Naturaliza- tion Scene, which ended in the formal admission of the Freshmen into the mem- bership of the Student Body, rounded out the entertainment. The Junior A Class furnished refreshments at the close of the program.

The spirit in which all athletic events of the year have been entered, is in a great part due to our coaches. Miss Helmer, Mr. Dougan and Mr. Westcott. Mr. Dougan, besides handling all gymnasium work, has built up some of the best athletic combinations the school has ever had. He came to us with a reputation as one of the best athletic instructors on the Coast and he has more than sus- tained this reputation. In short, with the spirit thus far shown, and with leaders such as Mr. Dougan and Mr. Westcott, our athletic prospects are very bright. COUNTY ALL-STAR TEAM Following numerous requests throughout the county for the selection of an All-Star team made up of football players of the three schools participating in the Inter-lligh School League, Coach Dougan of Eureka after conferring with other high school coaches selected the following players: Ends, Becker of Fern- dale ancl Christie of Eureka 3 Tackles, Monette of Eureka and McMillan of Arcata: Guards, McGrath of Eureka and Haas of Ferndale g Center, Heinrici of Eurekag Qwarterback, Pine of Arcatag Halfbacks, lValdner of Eureka and Oeschger of Ferndale g Fullback, Mahoney of Arcata.

After a short but snappy training season Miss llelmer. basket ball coach, succeeded in putting on the court one of the fastest and most consistent teams Eureka has ever had. The Hrst game was with Ferndale at Eureka. 'l'l IE FERN DALE-EL7 R ERA GAME The game was fast and clean, but from the first, the superior team work and individual brilliance of the Eureka girls gave them a lead that they steadily increased throughout the game. The goal throwing of Dorothy Falk, our captain, was a feature of the game and responsible for a great part of the scoring. The final score was 43 to 18, and can be attributed to the stellar play- ing of Falk and Lambert, as forwards, and Gross and VVinzler as guards. THE SEQUOIA 75 EUREKA AT ARCATA The girls played their first out of town game in the same dashing manner as before. The end of the first half found the Eureka girls in the lead by a wide margin, which increased to such an extent during the second half, that the game became uninteresting. The final score was 47 to 10, and again showed the scori-ng abilities of Falk and Lambert. The work of the Eureka guards is com- mendable, as is shown by the low Arcata score. THE FORTUNA-EUREKA GAME ' - The game for the basket ball chanipionship was scheduled for the Ferndale court on the morning of the interscholastic track meet. Owing to the fact that neither team had lost a game, the contest was expected to be a lively one, which was the case. From the minute the whistle blew until the end of the game the outcome was in doubt. At the close of the first half, Eureka led by a margin of three points. Play being resumed, Eureka was slow in getting under way and allowed Fortuna to gain a slight lead. The last few minutes of the game were intensely exciting. Eureka coming within two points of tying the score. when the whistle intervened and the game ended with Fortuna in the lead by a 33-31 score. The Eureka team for the season: Forwards-Falk. Lambert, Adams, and Larson. Guards-Gross, ,VVinzler, Gibbs, Hamilton, and Swanson, Centers-Bosworth, Morey, Bigler, and Jewett. ootball lfnotlwall is :1 strong ggzune. zt builder of eliarzieter, :L developer of mental and physical p1'owt-ss, and tihove all, it inihnes the :u'ei'ag'e .Xineriean hwy with that fighting spirit that is so essential to the welfzire nt lzttei' life. lfnntlmall przietive ennnneneed in int-diately after truck and with it txgain ezlnae the tzisk uf huilding' up an entire new ll nthzill nizichine.

The third quarter was featured by speetzicnlzn' plays nn both sides, but neither side was zihle to get withii striking distance uf the gmail line. THE sEQUo1.4 77 Arcata opened the fourth quarter with a repetition of her previous line smashes against Eureka's lighter line, but was held on her third down and forced to kick on her fourth. Eureka downed the ball on the ten yard line, and on the first buck lost the ball by a fumble which resulted in a score by Arcata, who also kicked the goal making the score 13 to 6 in her favor, with only ten minutes to play. It was here that the Eureka spirit asserted itself and by a series of line smashes and forward passes the lighter Eureka team all but scored, being checked only when the one yard line was reached. Arcata kicked out of danger and the game ended with Eureka working the ball down the held. A feature of the game was the line smashes of Vvaldner for Eureka, and Mahoney of Arcata. Arcata having previously defeated Ferndale, secured the County Cham- pionship by winning this game. THE FERNDALE-EUREKA GAME Not daunted by their reverse at Arcata, Eureka went to Ferndale with the determination to win from Ferndale on her home grounds, a feat that had not been accomplished in many years. The game started with Eureka kicking to Ferndale, who advanced the ball to Eureka's thirty yard line but were forced to give it up on downs. Eureka immediately began her offensive tactics with the result that Ferndale was steadily pushed back. lt was here that Eureka suffered the misfortune of losing her quarterltack, Art Remell, who was severely injured and forced to leave the game. Cutten replaced Remell at quarter, and Eureka again took the offensive by means of a series of line bucks and forward passes that sent Christie over the line for aefouchdown. Eureka also kicked the goal and the quarter ended with Eureka leading by a 7 to 0 score. -Ferndale opened the fourth quarter in a last desperate effort to score, but was unable to make her line bucks count against the stubborn resistance of the Euleka line and forced to give up the ball on her fourth down. Eureka im- mediately became the aggressor by bringing into play her line smashing forma- tions and open game of passing, with the result that Christie scored from the twenty yard line with a forward pass from VValdner. Eureka kicked the goal and the game closed with Eureka in the lead by a 21 to 0 score. The Ferndale game was a fitting finish to the football career of Waldiier our captain, as well as the entire team. As for line smashes and general all around football playing, Wa.ldner has few if any equals in our high school football actvi- ties. Time after time he was called upon to smash through the Ferndale defenses and he never failed to make the required distance. Other players deserving special credit are Heinrici, Monette and McGrath, whose defensive work was a big factor in keeping Ferndale scoreless. Eureka Team: Halfbacks-Waldner C Captjl, McGrath.

As we had lost most of our star trackmen by graduation, we faced the problem of building up an entire new team. Linder the direction of Coach Dougan, an exceptionally good team of lirst year men was developed. Much credit is due Mr. Dougan for the manner in which he rounded the track team into form for the meet at Ferndale- For the iirst time in many years the four schools of the llumboldt County High School Association were represented in the track meet. The meet was replete with thrills and up to the last few events the issue was rn doubt. In the cnd the Ferndale team of veteran trackmen carried off the honors of the day. .'Xli'l1'Jllg'l1 Eureka did not win the meet. she made a very creditable showing and gained for her new team the only thing they lacked-experience. Sensational runs and jumps characterized the meet. as can be seen by the records broken. lladley of Ferndale cleared 10:8 in the pole vault while Starks of Fortuna ran the mile in 4:56. Eureka boys deserving special mention are Daly and Fraser, both of whom ran under the former mile record. and I7. Falk who cleared the bar at 10 feet in the pole vault.

Witli the starting of school. practice began in earnest. Under the captaincy of Art Remell and coaching of Mr, Dougan, an exceptionally fast team was put on the court. ' ARCATA AT EUREKA The Arcata-Eureka game was a fight from start to finish. A slow start on the part of the Eureka boys gave Arcata a considerable lead when the whistle blew for the end of the first half. The second half opened with Eureka taking the offensive with the result of bringing her score up to that of Arcata. The game from then on was an exciting see-saw affair that found Arcata in the lead by a score of 31 to 28 as the whistle blew. THE SEQUOIA 81 FORTUXA-EUREKA GAME Eureka went to Fortuna for the second league game, which resulted in an exceptionally exciting game, a close score, and best of all a victory for Eureka. The game was characterized on both sides by fast playing and clever team work, the final score being 26 to 22 in favor of Eureka. i FERNDALE-EUREKA GAME e.gA After a hard fought game in which every score was a terrific battle around the goals, Ferndale won frmn Eureka by a 35 to 17 score. The game was the only one in which controversies arose, and it is to the credit of the Eureka boys that they took no part in the1n. Although the boys did not win the championship, a great deal of new ma'erial was developed that will be heard from in the future. The Eureka Team: Forwarcls-Langford. Remell QCaptj. Center, Walclnerg Guards--Cloney, Harris, Daly. Substitutes-Gillette, McGeorgc, Langdon, Skee, Monette, Mitchell, Fraser. i Cennis Tennis practice is in full swing, the first tournament being scheduled for April 6. Although in tennis, as in other athletic activities, the school has found its ranks of veterans depleted by graduations, the prospects for a cham- pionship tennis combination are very bright. Under the direction of Mr. Westcott, our tennis coach, and captained by Dorothy Falk, the new material is being rapidly rounded into form, and from all indications this year's tennis team will be above the standard of preceding years. In short, the tennis outlook is very good, in spite of the fact that the team will be composed principally of new players. CEditor's Note:-Since the above was Written, Eu- reka's players, C. Falk, L. Falk, D. Falk, A. Sinclair, A. Lambert, G. Robinson and M. Hamilton, have won the county tennis championship, thereby securing for Eureka the county athletic and debating banner.j Baseball Baseball results cannot be included in this issue of THE SEQUOIA, due to the fact that it goes to the press before the coming of the regular league games, which will be played the latter part of April and the first part of May. With Christie as captain and a number of veteran's from last year's championship team, prospects for a winning baseball machine are brilliant. Au abundance of new ma- terial gives promise of some very good recruits. Along with such experienced players, as Reniell, Langford, C. Falk and Christie, a well balanced and consistent team should result.

I got my news from Lily Pennj Next period where the two had sat, There was no trace of slim or fat: It's sometimes told in this plain way: Mr. Neighbor ended their fight that day!

THE SEQUOIA- 91 CEditor's note: The following is a resume of a Spanish story, as handed in for Spanish ZA by George Anderson Walcliier, better known to all under his Nom de guerre, "Doggy."j Chet Princess CFrom Bransby's Spanish Reader.j A great and powerful king had a much desired. beautiful daughter. She had for suitors every prince and nobleman of the surrounding kingdoms. The suitors in turn had great struggles between themselves for the hand of their beloved. The King's advisers realized that justice should be meted out by persons not so fickle as this princess, of a beauty beyond even a modern popular song writer or a Harrison Raphael Valasquez Fisher girl, but their real dilemma was how to choose from the midst of such lovable personages. Finally, the most learned of the Big Show's erudite advisers struck upon the bunco in which chance was to be thue stellar attraction. llowevah, 'twas less than a week before the love-battered suitors smelled a machination and each one, being rather obese and adipose of head and attenuated of mind, decided that the idea was as clear as mud, and therefore N. G. The great and noble Kinks only come-back was to have each and every able bodied love-lorn man make himself scarce for a period of 365 days. at the end of which time the guy giving in the most perfect dope-sheet score card should have the pleasure of tying up with the magazine cover princess. The designated space of time passed away, and on the very day of the grand reckoning, the Princess did also. But the wily followers of Dan Cupid saw a chance at the Tsar's pay envelope, and the grand reckoning took place before the deceased movie advertisements last restin' place, where she held forth in silent judgment amidst the lilacs and hydrangeas. Each and every contestant poured forth his voluminous manifestation of why he should be made king. The Warriors told of their many knockouts, the cleaning of gangsters and gunmen, and the numerous grid-iron battles. The ginks of stronger brain and weaker backs mentioned the manner in which they played the stocks. cornered wheat and men, and how they could dis- pose of "Sth Avenoo" as junk, or could make or break old john D. Then came those of weak mind and weakest backs. who whr oped it up about their spending all their hard earned kale on the Red Cross and the booths and booze of charity bazaars for the Indolent Idlers of India. The Princess was still deceased! All was over, exceptin' one, Ccount 'em,-onelbedraggled looking h-ig- been with the adoring aspect of a count when broke- His mournful physiognomy bespoke sadness, aye, sadness. Wearily he wended his footsteps to the leafy blower containing the Kings Only. ' This poor stiff made a public statement sayin' that he was bankrupt, insolvent, and a dead-beat. Wliat's more, he blamed it on his loving love for the good King's darling daughter. And then he butterflyed up and played Post Office with the Princess, deceased. Calamity of calamities! The Princess, deceased, had only ceased for the time being, and now she waltzes up to the bankrupt and claims him as her slave for life-and of course the old King's kingdom. etc.. is thrown in.

'-W v , X 4 R 1 -v THE SEQUOIA 93 LESSONS IN THE ART or oscULA'r1oN' By Miss Woodbury. Our music director was attempting to get the right effect in the new song, "La Habaneraf' . Miss Woodbury-Sound the "SH in kiss, please. Boys fsinging lustilyj--Kiss-s-s-s. Miss Woodbury Qin shocked tonej-Oh, don't make it so long, boys. Boys Qsinging againj-Kiss-s-s. Miss Woodbury Cin a grieved voicej-Boys, don't hold on so. Now just touch it lightly. Let's make it artistic. AND SHE VVGNDERED WHY THEY LAUGHED A DEFENSE OF SLANG QNGTICE: This essay is extensively plagiarizedj Some people like to kick about the company others keep. They very seldom want to give the company a chance. Slang is an old pard of mineg in fact he's about my best friend. He has always stood by me, especially when a strong cur- rent of slightly Warm language was coming my way. So I'1n going to stick to him while the guns are being turned on him. And slang is not just my friend. He knows and stands by people all over the world. He has made Tommy Atkins famous and f'Tommy" has made England famous, also one Rudyard Kipling. But. according to the people who know, our old friend slang makes his "hang-outn chiefly in our land. Slang is a particular friend of the uneducated, especially those in the city. When a person like one of O. Henry's characters with a two hundred word vocabulary tries to help himself along with fl few phrases that the high-brow doesn't understand, then the walking dictionarifs sit on him. "The American people like to be fooled." P. T. Barnum knew it. Most of the people who know so much about the cheap slang, and never use it, use it all the time. They don't know, and don't want to know, where our numerous colloquialisms come from. But. of course, it is all right to use them since they are listed in Webstei' or the Century . And listen, the Honorable Slang is not a youth, as many people say. He knew the fellows in the Bible and he knew about every other author that we may hope to know. He was an intimate friend of Bill Shakespeare's. But, of course. when we find the curious little phrase translated in the foot-note we mustnlt dare think we are reading a slang term,-we would be cruelly mistreating the great William. Did you ever hear a speaker begin a flowery sentence, one that has great possibilities fthe sentence I meanj, and suddenly find himself up against it for a construction? It's interesting to watch him, with the little old slang term right there handy. when he doesn'r like to use it, but knows he's got to. The abused little term will nine times out of ten come so close to the point that you can't detect the difference with the micrometers. 'So Fm going to stand by slang. -Edmund Chisholm, '18.

HISTORY QA Nightmarej O History! Who invented that name? From a lunatic's head it came. I see it on the wall at night: I fight it with all my might. It haunts me, it wants me, It binds me, I cannot see. From out the past it has been dragged, If I knew the guy he would be gagged. Into this happy world came we, Born to freedom, peaceful to be. But some poor boob had to spoil it all If I knew the guy I would give him a fall. He wrote whole books on bygone days, Of crummy fossils and their ways, 4 Of men that sailed around the worhl i And wore their hair in one long curl. Of other guys that hung around And cheated the Indians of their ground. XVho it was that knew all this- If I knew him it would be bliss. But that's not all: more torture yet, You can't guess, I'm willing to bei. And when I think what a life we must lead My heart goes out and sorely does bleed. For into the schools these books are put And to force us to learn them, a teacher. So if I knew the guy that wrought such grief, Ilis life on earth would be very brief. -Gertrude Davis. Ernie and Gertie are lovers true: They smile and giggle and chirp and coo. But when a Feshie smiles at Gert. Ernie says sh-is a little flirt- So even lovers disagree- It's perfectly natural, don't you see? -Lawton Bussman. 96 THE SEQUo1.4 Ethel Anderson ,.....,.,. Gladys Bang ,..............

Timber Lands Notary Humboldt National Bank Building Eureka, California EN WRAP THE LITTLE ONES IN AN ATMOSPHERE OF MUSIC! lt's a mistake to think of the purchase of a New Edison as an expenditure. As a matter of fact it's an investment-one which yields big dividends in the shape of money saved. How much do you and your family spend in seeking entertainment outside the home? A quarter for the movies-a dollar and a half for the theatre-a dollar or two for bowling or billiards-a dollar for an evening's spin in your automobile. All these expenditures are lessened when you have a New Edison in your home. The New Edison brings the world's best music into your home:-Interpreted by the world's greatest artists.
