Che Mid-winter Clase
Now it came to pass that on the first Monday in january, in the year of our
Lord 1915, a band of pilgrims started out on a four years pilgrimage to the Temple
of Learning. The goal would not be reached nor the results be known till the end
of four years.
Many other groups of pilgrims traveled the same road, and at regular in-
tervals new groups joined the procession, and other groups disappeared, having
reached the inner court of the Temple.
From the very beginning of the pilgrimage, many avenues opened for addi-
tional service to the members of their own band, as well as to other pilgrims.
Among the pilgrims who found that their best services could be rendered by
marching straight forward were Martha Hendrickson, Marguerite Hurlbutt,
Vance Jensen, Mina Mitchell, Mildred Nelson, and Victoria Rankin, Ruskin
Bohmansson, Mildred Peterson, Fred Toft and Grace Ogg. Branching off from
the main road were many avenues of pleasure and of profit. One of these lead
thru the Field of Athletics. Otto Carlson, Amos Christy, Marion Gross, Evelyn
Iewett and Maud Winzler brought honor to the Temple of Learning thru their
In December 1919 this band of pilgrims, having completed their pilgrimage,
reached the summit of the mountain, passed thru the Temple of Learning, and
joined the bands that had gone before them.-Doris,Kildale, '20.

Class of May, 1920
On the morning of August 5th, 1916, ninety shy Freshmen entered the
Eureka High School. Altho they were small and rather timid they soon took an
active part in school life. Every one was greatly surprised when two months after
their entrance these newcomers edited and published the Evergreen, the first
freshmen paper in the Eureka High School. In spite of its name this Freshman
monthly showed that its contributors were fast becoming literary geniuses.
Soon one year rolled by and these fresh little people became wise Sophs.
N ow came the dawn of their future athletic wonders. The Old High also awoke
to the fact that her Sophomores were eager to become a real part of the school in
music, athletic, and literary departments.
Another twelve months passed from sight and we now behold proud Juniors.
This was the class that led all others in scholarship and athletics.
At last comes the mighty senior year. VVhat a wonderful year to those
forty who withstood four years of high school life! The little farce given by
three members of the class met with a howling successg also, the debaters who car-
ried off the honors of the intensely interesting county debate were from this class.
In November the Seniors edited the Telescope which defended itself by the ex-
cellent literary compositions it contained. In every branch of athletics the Seniors
had their heroes and their heroines. They were equally well represented in
Student Body offices.
XVitl1 "Education for Defensei' as the root of its success, what more could a
class wish for ?-lrma Burnham.

The Redwoods of Humboldt County constitute one of the most wonderful
stands of trees in all the world. This superb forest is composed almost wholly of
countless numbers of the Immortal Sequoia, the oldest and greatest living thing
on earth today. It is impossible to adequately describe the magnificent and im-
pressive beauty of these mighty giants. Only those who have seen the Redwoods
in all their glory can comprehend the grandeur which they breathe forth. Let us
transport ourselves into the heart of the Humboldt Sequoias and glimpse their
beauty. The ground at our feet is carpeted with ferns and soft yielding mosses.
A solemn silence, broken only now and then by the distant singing of birds, or by
the snapping of twigs 'neath the wary feet of the deer pervades the forest withits
hushed solitude. The lofty Sequoias, towering on all sides and reachingitheir
green heads far up into the azure blue, are the very temples of God on earth.
Grand as it is, this mighty forest is but a remnant of what has been. Fifty
years ago, the Sequoia Sempervirens stood in serried ranks from San Francisco
Bay up along the California Coast even to the Oregon border, covering a total
area of over 20,000 square miles. 'Many of the finest groves of Redwoods have
already been destroyed, as the blackened ruins of gigantic stumps testify and now,
our Humboldt Redwoods-the grandest of them all-are threatened with destruc-
tion before the advance of human greed and carelessness.
The Redwoods, however are not without friends, and many prominent per-
sons, horrified at the destruction already wrought, are rallying to their aid. As ag nai-
tural result of this, the Save the Redwoods League was formally organized in june
1919 by a group of patriotic men and women from all over the nation. Encouraged
by the hearty support it has been accorded, the League has done some wonderful
work, and is now in a fair way to accomplish its ends. It is especially fitting that
"The Sequoia" should champion the cause of those mighty trees from which it
receives its name. VVe, the Staff of "The Sequoia" are heartily in sympathy with
the "Save the Redwoods" movement, and desire to set the example to the other
High Schools of the state by doing all in our power to further its cause.
It is hardly necessary to dwell upon the sacrifice involved in the destruction
of the Redwoods. It can be compared only to kindling a fire with one of Rem-
brandt's or Corot's priceless masterpieces, or to tearing down Giotto's Campanile
to furnish marble for a sawmill. One who would do such a thing would be right-
ly called a barbarian. What will the generations to come call us if we allow our
Redwoods to be destroyed? Many costly experiments have demonstrated the folly
of cutting down our forests, and many states are reforesting their mountains at
enormous cost. But the Redwoods, once destroyed, can never be restored, and are
lost to the world forever.
Our Redwoods must and shall not be destroyed !-Charles Daly, '20,

Another glorious year has been added to the history of E. H. S. It has pass-
ed-yes-but will never be forgotten. It has carved its wonderful record in
blazing letters upon the immortal scrolls of Eureka High, and it has set a high
standard for succeeding years to equal.
VVhether it be on Track and Field, over Football gridiron, on the Basketball
or Tennis Courts, Eureka athletes have swept all before them alike, and like Alex-
ander of old, look for new worlds to conquer. Vtfe have all the Cups in the County
in our possession, and have won County Championships in every branch of ath-
letics, excepting Basketball where we are tied for first.
Not only in Athletics but in numerous other activities have we left our mark
in no questionable terms. We are pardonably proud of the matchless reputation
which "The Telescope" is making for itself. Our Debaters are unequalled in the
County. In Scholarship, the usual high record of Eureka High has been maintain-
ed and a new spirit is evident in the work of the students.
Truly a wonderful year! Never before has Eureka High School held such
a commanding position not only in the County but thru-out the state. Old E. H. S.
is started at last and we must strive ceaselessly to make her the Best School in
America l-Charles Daly, '20,
Htbletics and the Man
"I say, Ted, goin, back to High this year FN Ted Craig, a sleepy looking lad
of about sixteen years, dropped his hoe and passed a grimy hand across his brow.
'fThe Lord only knows," he replied. "As for me, I'd rather go to work.
T hat old school's no place for a live fellow like me. But Pa can't see it that way.
Guess I'll have to go back."
His friend smiled at this, but wisely kept quiet. For a short time both
worked steadily. Suddenly Ted threw down his hoe and announced he was going
"But,,' expostulated the other, "you know this has gotta be finished, Ted.
The weeds are awful high and the carrots 'll choke if we don't weed 'em."
"Aw let the carrots choke. It's too hot to work," VVith this, Ted set out
for the swimming hole, leaving his partner to work in the hot sun.
That was Ted Craig all over. Never finished anything. Always took
everything as it came, and bewailed his fate if things didn't suit him. He was the
despair of his parents and teachers alike. A long list of 3's and 4's at school told
the tale. It was not because he was a dunce. No, far from it. He had ability if
he would only use it. But that was where the trouble arose. He wouldn't use it.
For some reason or other he disliked school and everything connected with school.
And, when Ted Craig set his mind against anything,-well, that was all there was
Vacation passed and once more the halls and campus of the old school re-
sounded with carefree shouts and merry laughter. Everybody seemed glad to be
back again-all but Ted Craig. But a change came. It was caused by a little
notice calling all football men to be out on the gridiron for the season's first prac-
tice. Tedys heart jumped. Football was his chief joy in life. He was out that
night and practicing for all he was worth, and to the utter surprise of all, he
plunged wholeheartedly into football, and was on the field regularly every evening
following. Then came the thunderbolt. Qne day this notice appeared on the
All successful candidates for the Varsity Team must average a 2 or better
in their studies.
A group of excited boys quickly gathered. As Ted approached, a running
fire of scathing comment greeted him.
"O you Ted !" "Guess it's no more football for you." "Pretty tough luck
to be a boneheadf'
Ted was about to reply hotly when he saw the notice. He wilted. In
broken-hearted silence, he strode away. Alone, he let the floodgates of his wrath
loose upon the Principal, the Coach, his teachers and all others that occurred to
him. But he didn't lie down and quit. Football was too close to his heart for that.
There was no sleep for Ted that night. Between fitful dozes he fought a grim
battle with himself, and, when the first faint glimmerings of morn appeared in the
west, he had made the decision.
. THE SEQUOIA 29
About eight o'cloek the following evening, one of Ted's old cronies called
"Hey, what's the matter? Hurry up, or we'll miss the prize fights," he
yelled. For an instant Ted hesitated. Then he replied firmly-
"I'm going to stay home tonight and study. So long." With this, he slam-
med the door, leaving the other speechless.
Well, to make a long story short, this is about what happened every night.
Wlieii Ted Craig said he'd do anything, he usually did it. Soon he began to learn.
And as the days grew longer, his eyes slowly opened and he began to see things in
their true light. A lesson well prepared now gave him more pleasure than the
prize fights of yore.
The big football game of the season came and passed away into football
history. To his great dismay, Ted didn't play. At first he was angry and blamed
the coach. Then he realized that, in his anxiety to get good enough marks to make
the team, he had neglected to practice.
A week later the school paper came out. Ted got his copy and looked
languidly over it. Suddenly he started violently and rubbed his eyes in amazement.
"Well, who'd ever thot it," he exclaimed. Then the realization dawned
upon him, and tossing his hat high in the air, he set out joyfully for home.
"And," he mused, as an afterthought, "Coach said he'd need me on the team
Perhaps, gentle reader, I should end my tale at this point, but in justice to
Ted, let us look over his shoulder and see what caused his joy. Ah, there it is down
in the corner.

In all ball games sooner or later comes the critical moment when the game
is decided. It is known as the break. VVhile it may last but a few seconds, in that
brief space of time the game is either won or lost.
In baseball parlance the seventh inning is always referred to as the "lucky
seventh," for in this the pitcher is likely to tire and ease up a bit in order to rest
his arm. Then the opposing team starts to hit him and before he can be benehed
the game is lost. The fans' and fannies' joyous cry of, "there's your old ball
game," rings thru the bleachers like a paean of victory. The other team still snarls
and snaps, but their play has lost some of its pristine dash and brilliance, for they
realize that it is beyond human power to overcome the lead their opponents have
Thus it is in real life. A man will go along for years apparently successful,
when suddenly the break comes and he either proves his mettle or goes down to
defeat and oblivion with the other weaklings.-Harold Bacon, '2O.
"""" You have probably heard your friends remark
that they are suffering from spring-fever and if you
yourself have never experienced the malady you prob-
ably observe mentally that they are more likely suffer-
ing from a disordered imagination.
I, too, used to be skeptical of the idea that there
was such a thing as spring-fever. In the days of mv
dim past I even recollect that I demanded an explana-
tion of the term from my parents. But now, since I
experience this disease annually and in one of its most
pronounced phases, I have a feeling of compassion,
and-yes-of kindred spirit for any one who is also
"""lli""'iu subject to this peculiar indisposition.
The form of spring-fever which I experience epery year, from the time that
the first tiny red leaf-buds appear on the Japanese Quince to the first days of
.lune when the roses unfold, is commonly known as the "garden-bug." In other
words I am filled with an insatiable, unquenchable desire for gardening.
The penetrating fragrance of violets. the golden tint of daffodils, the odor
of freshly turned soil, fill my mind with visions of neat garden paths, quaint bor-
ders, colorful beds and prim hedges.
I go to school and glibly talk of the functions of the state legislature, of
right triangles, and IXlilton's poetry, but all the time in the back of my mind I am
concerned with the relative merits of sweet-alyssum and candy-tuft for use in bor-
ders. with the color scheme effected by a bed of yellow pansies, against a back-
ground of blue larkspur. I live in a world apart, in a world of roseate hue, in 1

It makes no difference to me that our gardener. being an eccentric old man,
moodily uproots anything which I plant. It makes no difference to me that the
time which should be spent in endeavoring to acquire a certain degree of intelli-
gence concerning the complexities of chemistry is taken up with day-dreaming. It
makes no difference to me that my financial position does not permit me to carry
out to any appreciable extent my wild plans. No, nothing will cause me to abandon
my air-castles. Une year I even went so far as to make a most wonderful plan-
on paper--with beds of diamond shape. square, round, and otherwise. As a
further step toward the making of this highly artistic and soul satisfying garden
I purchased packets of twenty-five varieties of flower-seeds. Suffice it to say that
the seeds were never planted and the only result was that I remained in debt to the
members of my family, separately and collectively, for many months afterward.
However, each spring the sight of flower seeds for sale renews my old
longing. the sight of a spade fills me with new vigor. I continue to peruse eagerly
the optimistic pages of flower catalogues and I begin again to hoard every cent
which I can acquire.
And somehow I feel that I shall never overcome this disastrous influence
of spring. And honestly, I'm not so sure that I want to.-Ru-Flo Harper, '2l.
Next to the five blonde hairs which he had coaxed into growth upon his
upper lip, Archibald Betts loved his Ford racer. So, it happens that on a hot day
in mid-summer, Archibald dressed in his Sunday best, climbed into the little racer,
and drove far out into the country.
Perhaps it was Fate which led Archibald to turn off the highway and climb
up a small by-road which was bordered with sheltering maples. Or, maybe he just
wished to escape the heat. But this we shall never know, as Archibald's lips have
been sealed concerning the episode ever since that bright summer morning.
The hill was steep, and suddenly the engine gave a jerk and stopped. Archi-
bald was just contemplating getting out to crank up, when he suddenly lifted his
new straw hat, and smiled his most stunning smile. The motive of these actions
may be defined in two simple words-A Girl.
She was coming up through a corn field, her arms loaded with summer
daisies. Her hair was golden and fell in curls at her shoulders. Her eyes were
blue, andwhen she smiled at Archibald, a dimple dinted each pink cheek.
Archibald's fingers flew to his upper lip. He sighed in relief. Every hair
was in its proper place. . A
"You're the prettiest girl I've seen since I left the city," he announced to the
country girl. He waited for the effect. She blushed and smiled.
"I 'suppose you get terribly lonely way out here," he ventured.
"Me? Oh no, I'1n never lonely here," she told him.
"XN'hy, I'd be bored to death in a couple of days in a place like thisg but I
suppose it's different with you, never being any place except the country."
The girl's eyes widened, in mild surprise, but Archibald felt satisfied he had
only awakened interest in this pretty little farmer's daughter.
"My engines stalled," he told her. "VVill you show me where I can get some
"Of course," she answered. "just come up to the cabin."
He followed her down the lane which led to the log cabin. An old lady was
the only occupant.
Archibald liked these picturesque surroundings. He admired the big bear
skins which covered the floors. and carefully studied the Indian collections. Wheii
he went back to school he would write an essay on "Country Homes."
A violin was lying over the mantel. Archibald took it up and drew the bow
across the strings. "XVould you like to hear the latest song F' he asked.
The girl nodded, and he managed to produce a few shakey notes. He real-
ized he was making mistakes, but he told her it was "Grand Operafi and smiled to
himself because she 'fswallowed it"-fusing Mr. Betts' own expressionl.
The rest of the afternoon was spent by Archibald in telling the pretty girl
all his experiences at college.
"You see, I'm an athletef' he said expanding his narrow chest-"why, the
old school couldn't win a point without me."
'Tin president of our fraternity too," was his next statement. The girl
gave him a sharp look which made the color deepen in his pale face-but how could
she know he was not telling the truth? 'Tm also on the honor roll for scholar-
ship." he went on undauntedly. For hours the girl listened to his boastings: then
afternoon grew into evening, and the boy finally drew himself away from the girl
in the cabin.
He felt sure that he had awakened her to new thoughts and longings, and he
promised to return early the following Sunday.
"l'll be counting the hours," he said as the red racer emerged in a cloud of
dust, but the watching girl slowly shook her golden head and murmured, "I'll bet
32- THE SEQUOIA g
Archibald arrived home late that evening, very fatigued but satisfied with
the day's adventure. After he had eaten a hot dinner, his mother brought him his
cigarette case and the evening paper.
Leaning back in the morris chair, he lit a Fatima and turned the page to
Sports. Suddenly, he gasped. Across from Sports was the society column, and
a blonde girl laughed down from the page. It was the unmistakable picture of the
girl he had just met. In her hand was a violing and above the picture these words
swam before his dizzy eyes: "Marian King, New York's sub-deb and popular
little musician, leaves society to seek solitude at Maple Grove."
The paper fell to the floor, Calso the cigarettej.
"Archibald, have you seen a ghost," cried his mother.
"Mother, l've been a fool-an lmbecile-A Poor Fish!"
The mother raised her hand in protest to the slandering of her only son.
"Mother," he said slowly. "Once there was a great man who failed-" for
the first time in his life, Archibald was remembering history-"and through sacri-
fice he gained Compensation. Mother, I'm a failure! I must have Compensation."
The look of determination shone in his eyes. He rushed towards the bath room.
His mother was in pursuit. Leaping in the darkness, he stumbled upon his father's
"My child, my Archie!" exclaimed, the frantic mother. "No man has ever
gained Compensation by suicide."
With martyr-like expression Archibald thrust the razor upward-"My Com-
pensation shall be far greater-Mother,-it shall be gained through sacrifice," he
cried, 'Tm going to shave my mustache !"-Leota Monroe, '20.
Odom-s a la Chemistry
Did it ever occur to you that a spirit of unrest often pervades our school in
the form of certain invisible, yet very evident gases from the chemistry laboratory?
Probably you have noticed on certain days as you went along the upper hall,
that when students arrived in the vicinity of the chemistry department, they duck-
ed their heads, buried their noses in their handkerchiefs and actually flew along,
not seeing where they went and appearing to care less.
Perhaps you would wonder why in the World they were acting in such Il
hasty, brainless manner, but-shades of Limbnrger cheese! when you detect the
disturbing odors you probably act in a more "chicken with its head off" manner
than anyone else.
The odor of hydrogen sulphide is probably about the worst that has ever
caused disturbance. It actually smells like very stale Limburger plus highly de-
composed eggs, and its odor is not its only disagreeable characteristic, for it often
produces a queer indefinable feeling in the stomach.
Then comes phosphorus pentoxide, a gas that has an odor that can hardly
be compared with anything, but wherever it is, it surely makes its presence known.
I I ' Last, but by no means least, is that obnoxious, often terrifying gas known as
C l Ofllle.
However, chlorine does not possess as vivid an odor as aforesaid gases, but
the effect-land alive! When the gas attacks a person, he trys to gasp, choke and
cough all at once, and he presents a very odd-looking spectacle.
We wonder if our inventive genius could not invent a device to keep such
odors where they belong. lt really seems a pity to have the usual learned atmo-
sphere of our school invaded by such disturbing odors.-Honora McAllister, '21.

putting the little bare room in order.
'Wdfhat a night! XVhat a night!" he muttered as a rude gust of wind burst
open the door and extinguished the candle.
As he started to close the door, a strange sound caught his ear. Yes, there
it was again! He stepped outside and listened. It was a faint, far-off cry, almost
blended with the wailing of the wind, and yet distinctly human.
Regardless of his inappropriate clothing, he started off in the direction of
the voice. It could be heard only at intervals now, and each time it seemed to grow
fainter. The old man tried to answer, but his feeble voice vanished into the black-
ness ahead. Still he pressed on until finally he was startled by tl1e cry not more
than a yard away. Huddled against the trunk of a tree, a little child was vainly
trying to protect herself from the blasts. Very gently he picked her up and stum-
bled back to the cabin.
The fire was out and the wind had played havoc during his absence, but he
carefully deposited his burden on the cot, lit a fire, and heated some gruel.
After a time the child came back to consciousness, and gradually he gather-
ed between sobs that she had run away because her new governess was so unbear-
able. She had not meant to go far, just far enough to give Miss Madison a good
scare, but it was so pretty in the woods that she had wandered blissfully on until
she suddenly realized that she did not know the way home. Night had come on,
and not knowing what else to do, she had sat down and cried for help.
She was not one to let a misfortune disturb her, however, and was soon
darting about the room examining each curious specimen of out-door life that
adorned the walls. The old man watched her very tenderly as she flitted to and
fro, for something in her manner brought his past life vividly to mind. He was
somewhat prepared when she turned and demanded to know why he lived in this
lonely place, away from everybody else. He took her upon his knee and began.
"Once upon timel'1
HOI1! it's going to be a fairy story!" she cried delightedly.
"No," he replied. "Nothing so interesting as that. Once upon a time I lived
in a city in a beautiful big house. My father was a rich merchant and my mother
was the belle of society. Why, the name of Alice Henderson was known all over
the city! I had one sister several years younger than myself, but we were great
Here he paused.
"You do remind me of her very much," he resumed. "VVhen I was about

did some rather disgraceful things. Father was angry and refused to send me

more money, although my mother and sister Helen begged him to do so. Being
an independent sort of boy, I thought I would show them that I could take care of
myself, so I packed my bag and started forth in search of employment. I traveled
far and wide, but wherever I went, money slipped through my fingers like sand.
After years of tiresome discouragements, I returned, only to find that my family
had moved. I could find no trace of them so, disgusted with myself, I came to
these woods, built this cabin and started to search for gold. I never found much,
but I had long before given up hope of finding anything I wanted, so I have been
content to stay here and live by myself." '
During the story the child's eyes had been Wide with interest. Now she sat
up abruptly and exclaimed, "Why how strange! My grandmother has often told
me of a brother of hers who disappeared after her father had refused him money,
and was never found again. Grandma's name was Helen Henderson too, before
she married !"
After his little charge was asleep, the old man sat, staring into the dying
embers in the fireplace. "I knew it the minute I saw her," he murmured, and one
look at his face would tell that he had found what years of searching had not shown
him.-Berneice Little, '23.
"Write something for English tomorrowf'
How easily words are said,
Yet freighted with terrible meaning,
Causing many an aching head. .
"Write something for English tomorrow,"
Now what will that something be?
A poem, a story, an essay,-
Full rein has my fancy free.
"Write something for English tomorrow,

Ideas, like swift Winged creatures,
Before I can grasp them, take wing.
If I stood at a bar of stern justice,

Would be just the worst they could find.
"Write something for English tomorrow,"
The hour of midnight has struck.

Cn the Hrt of Chewing Gum
The process of masticating gum may be carried on in many different ways.
I have seen lady clerks in large department stores daintily pinch a part of the elas-
tic mass with their finger tips, stretch it out heavenward, and let it drop gracefully
back into their open mouths. When it has all reentered the mouth, it is chewed
over and over until it forms a good sized marble, when it is once more seized and
stretched, and so on, ad infinitum.
But this is not by any means the only way of pursuing this amusing occupa-
tion. Many a time has a boy uttered, as it were, a series of "smacks" from the
depths of his sticky wad. This is regarded by his younger brother as a great art,
and little Willie has often been known to practice for hours to get a "smack" like
big brother Joe's.
There are numerous other styles in which this highly interesting process is
carried on. There is a quiet, fearful style, which is best shown by a girl who is
afraid the teacher will part her from her delightful friend of the study hour. And
there is a style practiced by the boy who chews long and loud, teacher or no teach-
er. When he is bereft of one stick of gum, he immediately pulls out another, fear-
less of the consequences.
There must be variety to every art, so why not have variety to the methods
of chewing gum P-Kathleen Hoover, '21,
That was a dream worth dreaming,
That was a plan worth planning
NVith joyous youth its halls are teeming,
Whose eyes the future years are scanning.
That was a thought worth thinking,
That was a faith worth holding,
'Tis health the youth are drinking
And strength their lives are molding.
That was a trust worth keeping,
That was a health worth boasting
'Tis sowing shall yield the reaping
'Tis work that counts, not coasting.
That was a hope worth hoping,
That was a vision worth seeing,
They'll walk in the light, not groping,
Themselves, and others, freeing.
That was a game worth playing,
That was a race worth running
The foundation of life now laying,
Fair play and love in each inning.

In the national contest held by the United States Government in the form of
a "Come Back" essay on the subject "VVhat Are the Benefits of Enlistment in the
United States' Army," Miss Doris Kildale of the Eureka High School held fifth
place in the State of California, first place in the district Cseventeen countiesj of
Northern California. and first place in the City of Eureka. She received a govern-
ment prize of ten dollars from the state, a medal from San Francisco for standing
highest in the district of Northern California, and twenty-five dollars from Eureka.
She also won a silver trophy cup for the high school as a prize for ranking highest
in the seventeen counties of Northern California. The following is the essay writ-
ten by our prize winner.
Reasons for Gnlisting in the
United States Hrmy
I am the call to service, I am the spirit of democracy-the spirit of equal
rights, equal privileges, and of equal protection.
I am the force that draws all men to safetyg I am the wall that protects the
citizens against enemies from within and from without.
I am the door of opportunity: I am the light of civilization 3 I open the gate
to progress, I hold in my hand the offer of service and progress.
I am the spirit of Wasliiiigtoii and Lincoln, I am the spirit of the boys of
1776 and of the boys of 1918.
I am the United States Armv.
What are some of the advantages I have to offer?
In the first place, I offer education-cultural education and practical educa-
tiong mental training and vocational training.
VVhen a young man comes to me uneducated, I return him educatedg when
he comes to me unskilled, I return him with a useful trade.
I have all forms of education and all kinds of schools at my disposal, and I
offer them free to the youth who follows me. I
I offer physical training and healthful exercise. I repair the 1nan's teeth,
feet, muscles. and nerves g if he comes to me stoop-shouldered, hollow-chested, dull,-
cyed, I send him back, straight, strong and true.
If he comes weary, jaded, and discouraged, I give him new hope, new
energy, and new ambition.
I offer board and room and healthful clothingg I offer good salary increase
with promotions, adequate insurance, and pensions after service.
I offer change of scene and travel 3 I offer new inspirations and associations.
I offer entertainment and social recreation. I offer the opportunity for contact
with the greatest and best men of the age.
I offer recognition of service and promotion for endeavor. I foster the
spirit of loyalty and patriotism.
I say to the young man: '
"Come with me and I will do thee good, and will send thee back a better and
a braver citizen."
I offer the gift of morale-the principle of fair play and team work, of
dignity and gracious sacrifice.
These things I offer. and many more, to those who will enter my service and
follow my guidance.-Doris K. Kildale.
Now corrective measures for smaller offenses and infringement of rules
had long been a vexed question in thc High Schools of the State.
And it came to pass that through the inauguration of the Detention Class
system the problem was solved in the Eureka High School. For failure to pre-
pare lessons or disregard for class rules, each teacher had the right to impose
"one hour in detention."
And such was the spirit in which it was conducted that it came to be that
this system carried with it less of the sense of punishment, but more of thc sense
of corrective measure and opportunity for improvement.
And it came to pass that under the supervision of a teacher, work would
be made up or new lessons prepared, sometimes the monotony of routine work
would be relieved by glimpses of unsuspected ability or pleasing variety.
Che Detention Class
As I write this I am reposing in the
p ., A deathlike stillness of the detention class.
',, The boneyard is another less poetical name
lffmf LQ,-AA. X for it. Here the blackguards and reprobates
with ',F ,Z of the High School recline. Heie they
Egg suffer agonies and grind out lessons. Heie
i ' the Latin scholar shakes Caesar as a terrier
-2 H does a rat, here the mathematician proves
the water tightness of the theorem of Mr.
Pythagoras concerning the right triangles, and here the noble biologist peruses
lengthy treatises concerning the internal mechanism of a frog.
The detention class might well be called the "graveyard of lost hopes." One
boy hoped to play baseball, another hoped to play football, and I hoped to go down
town and lean against the corners of buildings and watch the crowd go by. Per-
sonally. I am not opposed to the detention class as such, but when I am remanded
to this prison place, I feel deeply outraged. I have been sentenced to three days.
Now captivity is not the normal state of man. Man does not like captivity.
It is repulsive to the soul of a school boy to be kept in Hdurance vile," while his
classmates are running about at will.
When we are imprisoned in this tomb of sighs, we cannot enlighten the
world by making new discoveries in the art of fielding grounders. And so, this
should not be.
Again I state that captivity is not the normal state of man. And why should
we be kept in an abnormal state. This, on the very face of it, would appear to be un-
just.-Alvin Speegle, '20.
Cime is Golden
After some forty 1l1lI1llt6S of deep concentration I came to the conclusion
that time is a great factor in the life of a human being. Shiftlessness and laziness
go hand in hand, and they are encouraged by a boy who does not function proper-
ly.-Kenneth Farley, '21.
fNVritten in Detention Class April 6th for Mr. Smithj
It used to happen in the Spring
And often in the Fall
That I would wake up in the class
And hear the teacher call.
I loved to dream of great old ships
From topmast to the hulls,
And how I loved the dear old bay
And salt winds and the gulls.
I loved to sail to ports unknown
And smell the salty brine,
And plan that in my future days
"An ocean life for mine."
But 'bout this dreamy deep blue sea
And things I did not mention,
The teacher breaks the mental joy

influential members, Sim Zane, announced his intention of abandoning the scene
of political struggles and entering upon some other walk of life. It has been an-
nounced, however, that he may return and the Democrats have gone about their
affairs with revived hopes. The Democratic platform offers a distinct advantage
over the other platforms in that it advocates the right of superiority over the other

The high cost of living and the low production brought on by the late war
have made it necessary that we continue to have a food administrator and a Board

The chief administrator is Miss Smith who is assisted by Mrs. Littlefield.

Conventions are held on the first Monday of each month, each party sitting
in a body. Panic reigned supreme at the beginning of the season because some of
the Socialists seemed unable to attend the convention. No enthusiasm is shown
during these conventions, until after the minutes, have been read and all reports
But when the consideration of new business is reached party spirit runs riot.
This year many worthy reforms have been accomplished, among them the passing
of a bill for the protection of the tennis court. another to provide new wire for
the court, and still other improving the cafeteria service and protecting the grounds.

"That reminds me," exclaimed the President, "of the dance given by the
junior College in November. That Junior College had a lively bunch of fellows
at that time and they certainly made their dance interesting."
K'Especially,,' chuckled the Ambassador, "when the lights went out and our
principal was so upset thinking they had been turned out accidentally on purpose."
HVVas there not a Freshman Reception also during that semester?" asked
the President complacently curling his mustache.
"I believe so," replied the Ambassador, "but I remember more ilistinetly
the opening ball given in the new gymnasium-the music-the smooth Hoor, the
red and green decorations,-and the girls!" he added with a deep sigh.
"Oh yes, the girlslw repeated President Rew dreamily, "and don't you re-
member the next reception given the Freshmen-how the girls danced so artistic-
ally the Spanish dance?"
"How well I remember," mediated Mr. Laverty, Hit was the Spanish Draw
which inspired my sister to become the leading lady in the Ziegfield Follies."
"There was another dance held in the gym in April, just before my gradua-
tion,', stated the President musingly.
"That is trne,', replied the diplomat. "I did not attend that dance but from
all reports it was a very successful affair. But, Mr. President, who is the lady
approaching us across the lawn ?"
"She is my wife," the President exclaimed. 'fYou must remember her. She
also attended Eureka High School."
Lately there seems to be a lack of pep in the exchange of school papers and
annuals. VVe do not know if it is the fault of the school or the fault of the ex-
From the many exchanges that were sent from the Eureka High and the
few that were received we would say that there is a lack of work in the exchange
department. Many of the schools said they had saved no copies for exchange.
The Eureka High School wishes to acknowledge the following exchanges
and hopes that they have received as much enjoyment from the Sequoia as the
Sequoia has received from them.
Megaphone, Fortuna-Your arrangement and cuts are very well liked, but
why not more new jokes?
Cardinal, Corning-Cuts show originality. The book is very well arranged.
XVC would suggest different paper as the reproduction of your cuts is poor.
Arts and Crafts, Berkeley--A very well arranged book. The titles are fine.
Green and NVhite, Inglewood-WVC appreciate your book very much and
have gained many original ideas from it.

Charles Daly-"Take my picture."
Marcel Adams-"Gee, that's rich. O Bobo!"
Carroll Nixon-"VVell, now ---."
Carson Mitchell-"By Iiminyli'
Herbert McCurdy-"Your treasurer begs leave to submit -i-.
Ernie Farrar-"May I have this dance ?"

Thelo Perrott-"Please pass the cake."

Chester Monette-"Shoot ya a game."
The Telescope, the monthly paper issued by the students of the Eureka
High School, is the first real attempt for a permanent school paper.
The idea of having each class publish one issue of the paper has proved to
be of great value to the school. It has not only fostered school spirit but it has
brought to the front many a talented student, not only in literary ability, but in
dramatic and artistic ability.
Much clever advertising has been done. This was started by the 3-B Class
and each succeeding class has shown much originality in this end of the work. The
2-A's broke the record in sales.
lt has been due to the instructive help of Miss Fitzell and Miss McGeorge
that the high standard of the Telescope has been made and held up.
About the 4-A Telescope Dr. Molineux said, "We did not think it could be
trne. The last number of the Telescope is the best number I ever saw."
. At the Principals' meeting held at Asilomar, Mr. Fisher, of the Oakland
Technical High said, "If you want to know the man who has the best school paper,
it is that man Molineuxf'

If nothing else in the Sequoia is original this is, because this is the first time
the E. H. S. has ever had all the trophy cups in the school at the same time.
The Soule Cup, being the oldest, deserves the first attention. It was pre-
sented to the Humboldt County Athletic League as the Animal Field Day Trophy
by Mr. Charles Parsons Soule. The first school to capture this coveted trophy was
Ferndale in 19075 then Eureka in 1908-09-105 Ferndale, 1911 g Eureka, 1912-13-143
Ferndale, 1915-16-175 Fortuna, 19185 and Eureka, 1919. It appears that we win
it by "3's" so we have two more years coming and then we're going to break the
spell and win it three more years.
The next cup in the order of age is the almost unknown Perpetual Inter-
class Athletic Cup presented to the school by the First Mid-winter Class of 1915.
The purpose of this was to stir up an inter-class athletic spirit. The class winning
the most events of the year is supposed to engrave its numerals on the cup, but it
seems that the cup has been forgotten for no numerals are to be found.
The largest of all the cups and one that is quite recent is that entitle-'l
Spalding Trophy Football Champions presented to the Humboldt County Athletic
and Debating League. Eureka had the honor of winning this first in 19163 Areata
in 1917: as there was no football in 1918 it was only held by Arcata. In 1919 Eu-
reka again brings home the beautiful big cup.
The next cup is a permanent cup presented by Spalding to the E. H. S. for
the Humboldt County High School Tennis Championship for 1918. Some action
should be taken to make this a perpetual cup. Even at that it would always remain
with us, because we have lost tennis only once in the history of the school.
The last and most artistic of all the cups is the tall one that was purchased
with the money given by each school of the county to the winner of the most
number of points in the Humboldt County Athletic and Debating League. It is
merely a trophy cup for athletic championship for the year 1918 and will remain in
the school forever.
The first game of the season was one of the most exciting games ever wit-
nessed. In fact it was so tight that at the end three decisions were given before
the right was discovered. The score was 15 to 14 in favor of Arcata. This was
the only game that we lost but it seemed to inspire the team for on the next Satur-
day Eureka beat Fortuna 17 to 6 in a very one sided game on the Fortuna court.
and the next week on the home court our girls ran circles around Ferndale to :L
most unmerciful score of 42 to 12. This created a tie, and as it is the character of
a girl to be best or none at all, the girls decided to play off the tie. They played
Ferndale on her home court and beat her in a very exciting and close game. The
score was 14 to 12. This gave the girls the championship in name only but they

We played only two games of Football this year so we didn't have a chance
to win any more but those two games were enough to win the county champion-
ship and the Football Cup.
The first game was at Arcata on the 8th of November and we captured the
bacon to a score of 13 to 7. At the end of the first quarter the score was 7 to 7
and in the second quarter we pushed over the deciding score. The last half was a
long hard struggle in which neither side gained any ground but when the whistle
blew, Eureka had the ball and was making rapid headway toward the goal line.
The second and last game was with Ferndale at Ferndale. Although this
game was not as tight as the Arcata-Eureka game it contained the average amount
of thrills and kicks.
The first half was just plain football with the score 14-0 in our favor. In
the second half our men decided to give the spectators their money,s worth. First
Sid Bartlett tried to play dead for a few minutes, then everyone was given the sur-
prise of his life when Ellis Delaney easily sprinted past such men as Monette and
Daly and tackled a Ferndale man on the 10 yard line. Act III Scene 1 opened
with Jackman dying on the "cow pasture" but he soon recovered to see Amos
Christie "bust off" a two by four goal post as though nothing had stood between
him and the goal. At last the game ended, and by the aid of an adding machine it
was found that we were the champs to a victory of 35 to 12.
In the picture on page 70, the personnel of the team is as follows:
Top row, left to right: Mitchell, right tackle: Smith, right guardg Monette,
quarter back, Christie, left halfbackg Jackman, fullback fCapt.jg Hilfiker, right
tackle, Rushmore, right halfbackg Delaney, right guard, Smith Ccoachj. Bottom
row: Adams, right endg Perrott, left guard, Wood, left end, Corten, centerg Zane,
center 3 McCurdy, right end, Daly, left end.
February the seventh was a Uhardluck day" or better "too much dance the
night before" for Eureka's unlimited team. After having beaten Ferndale in two
practice games to let them beat us 33 to 31 was "tough luck." Nevertheless it was
a mighty good game and a fine exhibition of clean sport.
On the same night our limited team beat Ferndale's limited. It seems that
this year everything has to be tight and this game surely was. Tie at the end of the
first half and 20 to 19 at the end of the last half in favor of Eureka.
The nextgame was to have been played with Fortuna in our new gym but
due to influenza at Fortuna the game was forfeited to us.
Then the following week the first game on our home floor was with Arcata.
Both teams put up a good fast game but Eureka put up the fastest, which was
proved by a score of 33-28. This left a tie between Arcata, Ferndale and Eureka.
It was not played off.
Our limited team did not fare so well on their home court and were beaten
by Arcata. This gave Arcata's limited team the county championship but we got
second even if we didn't get first. -

O11 April 17th Eureka played Arcata at Eureka.
It was the first game of the season and was onefull of bad playing on both
sides. The two pitchers, Prichett of Arcata and Bacon of Eureka, both pitched a
good game, but had poor support. Although we were beaten 13 to 7 we still have
hope to win the next two games which might give us first place or at least a tie for

Tennis this year was pulled off in big league style. NVe held one grand
tournament on the Eureka courts on April 10th. Eureka and Ferndale played on
one court and Arcata and Fortuna were supposed to play on the other but due to
some misunderstanding Arcata arrived a few hours late.
Eureka had easy victories all the way thru, winning every match in both
tournaments. As far back as anyone can remember Eureka has always won the
county tennis championship.
The best match of the day was boys' doubles between Eureka and Fortuna.
6-3, 4-6, 6-4. Fortuna won an easy victory from Arcata.
