We, the members of the 4A Class, feel- ing that our days in the Eureka High School are numbered and realizing that the day of judgment is fast approaching when all Seniors must stand before the merit and demerit committee to declare whether their acts have been righteous or ungodly, and knowing, furthermore that our knowledge shall soon be tested in the firey brimstone of final examinations, do individually and collectively will and be- queath the following articles while we are yet insane, unsound, and indisposing in mind.

V This is the subject of the great book which Miss Sybil Look, with the aid of Miss Louise Ingalls is editing. However, because of her great devotion to and in- terest in her classmates of E. H. S., she sacrifices some of her time to give us a careful account of them and their work. To accomplish this end, she has publish- ed the following parts of the diary she wrote while in the Philippines. June 13, 1934: I arrived in Manilla todayg went to the Watkins' Hotel and I learned that Ruth is doing very well in the hotel business. Saw Mary Anderson, an elevator girl. Met Sanoma Jeffries, governor of the Is- lands, who said she had just heard from Nina Hoover, who is carrying on the work of her predecessor, "Herbert Hoover." From her own account, it is evident that she will surpass him. June 24, 1934: Went down to see the La Mezcla arrive. Saw President Neall and her secretary, Mabel Johnson, accompanied by part of her cabinet. They t0ld me George Nor- gard invented this wonderful passenger aeroplane which rises without requiring any space for a "take oii'." Carol Pentin is the pilot. I saw Garland Moorehead serving the ladies with cooling' drinks. Met Freda Ray, who is making cartoons for the American Magazine. Iufy 3, 1934: I saw Evelyn Wolff' and company in the Rowena Rolly's latest play. I also heard Frela Shields, world famous whis- tler, accompanied by Esther Milligan. Was told that Myrtle Swanson was teaching and it is rumored that she is engaged. Heard Zelma Delaney was a champion ten- nis player. Good for her! Read in the paper that Harold Jamieson was suing Ansil Rankin, the bootblack, for not black- ing' his shoes to a nicety. The law firm of Lillian Green and Pauline Green is handling this case. July 30, 1934: Chester Barnes and Herbert Newell, so they say, dive for pennies in the bay. Poor boys! I visited the Dissipation Sanitor- ium, where Mary Wahl and Julia Herman- son are recuperating from a strenuous social life. Florence Christie is a very good matron and everybody in the sani- torium likes her. Some one told me that the Roscoe Brothers were shaking down and picking up cocoanuts. Vivian Cortell and Agnes Corten own a very popular peanut stand. Sonoma told me Marion' Stuart, Secretary of the Treasury, Corrine Hilton, Secretary of War, and Violet Ab- fConcluded at end of "Jokes" on page 1091 I X . - X SWAN X Q N I 5 XX A X I Ay b 5, Y fx I I X x M NN W RN xX I N XXQN N. .

We are inclined to think of ourselves either as galley slaves held in subjection by tyrants, or as immature and incom- petent children who are too young and .gnorant to be held responsible for their actions. But we are neither of these. We are the possessors of the most pre- cious thingi in the world,-youth. We are at the portals of the greatest thing in all the world-lifq. We are at once "the heritage of the past and the hope of the future". Already we begin to feel like men and women. Yet in among the new feelings which have so lately appeared, the weak- ness of childhood still lingers. We are not children now, but a short time ago we were. We are not men and women, but we soon will be. Let us build our futures by making this period of our lives what it should be. The Studeynt Body and the class organizations are the best of training schools for citizens. Real politics in city, state or nation is exactly our Student Body politics. There rings and cliques and bosses. There citizens who do careg citizens who do vote and citizens who do vote. There men who talk much but do little, and like afe are not are men who talk little but do much. So consider your part in the Student Body as a real responsibility. Maybe you think it is no use to try because the teachers boss it all anyway. But don't be influenced by uch feelings. Assume responsibility any- way, for if you slight things now you will form the habit of slighting them all your life. Another thing to learn in school is polite- ness. We must start in to try to be polite to teachers and to each other. Many of us think that we are not expected to be as polite in school as we would be in our homes. But we are in school for so long a time each day that if we are not courteous here we will find it impossible to remember to be courteous elsewhere. We must also form habits of health and habits of work, for no matter where we go or what we do when we leave high school, we shall find ourselves slaves to the habits which we form while we are here. We are building our futures now. We are develop- ing the natural abilities that will later sup- port us. Muturing the traits that will later distinguish us. We are reaching out into the strange, the wonderful, the unknown. Let us be careful where we reach and what we grasp. Let us never loose faith in ourselves. It is with a great deal of pride that the SEQUOIA STAFF of 1924 presents this annual to the students. It will be noticed that a number of changes have been made in the general character of the book. For the first time we have included a section which deals with the departments of the school in order that parents and strangers may become acquainted with the organ- ization of the school. This department is also intended to inform students of the various types of subjects taught in the school, for students seldom have an op- portunity to become acquainted with the work of more than a few departments. A separate poetry dept. has been created, be- cause we believe the literary editor has not had time to do justice to the poetry. The organizations' section has been enlarged and the articles made of a serious rather than a humorous nature. The literary sec- ,ii R: uk. .Q 53- X-x 'X i.

The exchange section has been made strikingly original. To balance these changes, the joke section has been greatly expanded and many original features have been added. The editor wishes to take this opportun- ity to commend the Staff for their untiring efforts to make this SEQUOIA a success. Without a single exception, they showed cheerfulness in the face of what seemed disaster, loyalty when all seemed lost and willingness to work hard and sacrifice much on all occasions. This is an important year in the life of the American people. During this year of 1924 voters of the nation in general elec- tion will choose their president. At the next presidential election fully half of the stud- ents now in our school will be eligible to vote. Do teachers ever realize that they are making history as truly as Alexander or Napoleon ever did? School annuals are enjoyed as accounts of our varied school life, treasured as sac- red memory books to bring back school days long after they are past. But more than this, they are of the greatest historical val- ue. An intimate history of our community is contained in the Sequoia of past years. The picture of the graduates, the accounts of student activities, the literary section, the humor, all combine to produce a vivid, life-like picture of days gone by. For these precious Sequoias to be destroyed is a distinct loss to both the school and to the community. Accordingly, the Sequoia Staff of 1924, finding that copies of many issues of the Sequoia were badly damaged, set out to collect three perfect copies of every Sequoia which had been published. One complete set will be filed in the school li- brary and another will be presented to the City Library for permanent keeping. In this way we hope to preserve for future generations these priceless records of our life. FINANCING THE ANNUAL Eureka High School can justly be proud of the progress that is being made by its annual from year to year. Last year the students got together and, thru the hearty cooperation of Mrs. Nason, they succeeded in printing our own annual, and in addition we have financed it without aid of adver- tisements. "Can we get along without ads?" has been a question confronting every Business Manager since the Sequoia was first published. Advertisements have been done away with because we feel that the business man gets nothing out of them. It is an act of charity on his part when he subscribes to an ad in the year book. Prob- ably many annuals have realized this fact and have tried to do away with ads, but gave the idea up as an impossibility. How- ever, we have produced this Sequoia with- out ads. This is the way in which we have met our financial problem this year. At the opening of the spring semester, members of the Stu- dent Body were asked to subscribe in ad- vance. They responded generously and by the first of March our resources exceeded our liabilities. The money from this ad- vance sale along with that which was re- ceived from smaller enterprises and work donated put us on a strong financial basis.

I C E D IT O RIALJ ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The Sequoia Staff of 1924 is grateful for the cordial cooperation which it has received all during this busy year. We wish to thank those who, although not members of the Staff, have materially as- sisted us in making the Sequoia a success. Neva Tracey and Margaret Marks, the private secretaries of the editor, have been especially helpful. We also wish to thank the students who mounted pictures, went errands, assisted with art work and parti- cipated in our advertising stunts. The printing classes also deserve special men- tion, for to their untiring efforts in our be- half We owe much of the success of this book. Furthermore, we wish to take this opportunity to express our appreciaLion to our advisers. Miss Cecile Clarke, our first adviser, assisted us in planning our book and mapping out our year's work. Need- less to say, the Staff was grieved when her arduous duties as head of the History Department forced her to resign her posi- tion. Miss Antionette Boies then became our adviser and was of immeasureable as- sistance to us in every way. Soon after the beginning of the spring semester Miss Boies was given an extra class, which fact forced her to discontinue her work as Sequoia adviser. Her posi- tion was taken by Miss Elene Carol Han- son, whose expert services in correcting material and giving advice on the details of the book have proved invaluable. We wish to thank Mrs. Rebecca Nason for the splendid help which she has given us as financial adviser and head of the com- mercial department. Miss Agnes Borg and the art department deserve thanks not only for the splendid art work in this Se- quoia, but for the help which they have given us in mounting pictures and in mal:- ing' posters for advertising purposes. We also wish to thank Mr. Shepard personally for his devotion to the Sequoia, his un- on matters of make- when copy has not addition to the above those who have con- the Sequoia in such We have been forced failing good counsel up and his patience been forthcoming. In we wish to thank all riouted material to large quantities that to reject much that was worthy of pub- lica ion. We also wish to express our ap- preciation to those who have subscribed to the Sequoia in advance and to the numer- ous teachers who, although not advisers, have aided us in numberless ways. Es- pecially do we wish to thank Miss Manning for the use of the textbook room. Last, but not least, we wish to thank Mr. Jensen and his assistants in the oiiice for their courtesy and cooperation at all times.

THE' EUREKA HIGH SCHOGL The Eureka High School, is primarily anti educational institution, It is a public or-' ganization erected, and, maintained at pub-1 lic expensed, It exists for the development- of all the people whnsare. botlmwilling and? able tcv acquire an education. It is bothi academic and industrial but it makes no' effort tor draw impossible lines between acf adermic and industrial education for some-e how we feel. that an education is education.

The Eureka High School has an especi- ally strong English department, a four year course being offered, besides special classes in English Drama. The ai-ms of the English department are: first, "To develop our power to read thoughtfully and understandinglyf' sec- ondly, "To give us a wider knowledge of human nature, a greater comprehension of people in real life so that we may read aright their character, interpret correctly their action and motives," thirdly, "To es- tablish our standards of conduct," fourth ly, "To develop in us the ability to dis- ting-uish'between sound thinking and falla- cious reasoningg to make us thinking citi- zens in this complex modern democracy," "To teach us the need of knowing how to keep nobly busy and to spend our leisure time profitably. Then, too, a law has been passed by the legislature which requires, "That reg- ular courses in instruction in the Consti- tution of the United States, including the study pf American institutions and ideals, all public and private schools be given in of the state". Therefore, the State Board of Educaton "During the has issued the following order, first two years of the pupils' course in the high school, attention shall be given to the study and discussion of literature presenting American ideals. Such Lork will not constitute a separate course, but will be part of the work in English." The books studied in the Freshman year are selected from the following liste- Fiirst Semester: Ashmuris-Prose Literature for Secon- dary Schools. Grenfel.1's--Adrift on an Ice-Pan. Muir's-Stickeen. Palmefs--Translation of the Odyssey. Dana's-Two Years Before the Mast. Sevenson's-Treasure Island. Parkman's-Oregon Trail. Mabie's-Heroes Every Child Should Know. Second semester.

Kipling's-Kim. Churchill's-Conniston. Shakespeare's-Macbeth. Galsworthy's-The Mob. Goldsmith's-She Stoops to Conquer. In the second semester a course in the History of American Literature is given. In the Senior year a course in Modern Drama, consisting of on-e-act and three-act plays, or the History of English Literature, is offered. Besides these classes, we are required to make reports on supplementary reading. Freshmen must read at least five short stories, amounting to 5 unitsg Sophomores are required to cover 10 units, Juniors, 15 unitsg Seniors, 20 units. The objective is as follows: 1. To arouse a consciousness of the un- ending struggle between right and wrong, and its effect on others. 2. To discover through literature great ethical laws, and to stimulate thought on problems of social life. 3. To develop a liking for lyric poetry. 4. To reveal a source of lasting pleasure and profit in reading, discussing, and mem- orizing verse. 5. To develop some simple standards by which verse may be tested. 6. To arouse an interest in the question of conduct in men and women as members of a social group. 7. To help pupils to discriminate be- all time." In addition the study of course in grammar, written and oral com- position. We study formal grammar that we might have the necessary "tools'V' to work with in our written and oral compo- sitions. ' The object of writing themes in the Freshman year is as follows: 1. To secure mastery of "sentence-idea." 2. To secure freedom from glaring er- rors in grammar. 3. To secure mastery of a few commonly misspelled words. 4. To secure mastery of important rules of "capitalization" and the more common uses of punctuation. 5. To secure a larger vocabulary. 6. To write business and friendly let- t-ers. 7. To know chief characteristics of sim- ple narration. - The object of Sophomore English is: 1. To develop the paragraph. 2. To write simple exposition and argu- ment. 3. To make logical outlines. 4. To write business letters clearly, con- cisely, and tactfully. -5. To drill in-spelling and punctutation. 6. To enlarge vocabulary. 7. To teach agreement of noun and pro- noun, and to continue drill of the verb. The object of Junior English is: 1. To outline a theme for several para- to the reading of books and classics, we have a special graphs. 2. To write a composition of several paragraphs. 3. To write descriptions. 4. To write narratives containing de- cription. 5. To review exposition and argument. Qxtwfif Xigx X wxzwl X A s X to N mx x it xiao X' 6. To write editorials, essays, etc. The object of Senior English is: 1. To give opportunity for definite drill in mechanics of writing, spelling, capitali- zing, punctuation. 2. To develop greater ability in all forms of letter-writing, contents and form. 3. To arouse interest in the value of good style. A In our oral work, which occurs once a week, we speak of our classes as clubs and we conduct our meetings according to Par- liamentary Law. Members are selected at each meeting to act as chairman, secretary, and critic. Our aim is to know how to conduct a .F .X . A X txt .Xa XX xg xx M 5 gathering of any sort intelligentlyg to ac- quire an easy dignified poise before an au- dience, to learn to speak naturally, direct- ly, and effectively. To accomplish our aims, we give talks on patritotismg we briefly state the plots of stories: we tell of our own experi- ences and observationsg we carry on de- batesg we memorize poems and "Creeds"g we discuss current events etc. We students often feel that the course is rather heavy and the scope rather large, but we know the objective of the course is truly worthwhile, and some day we may appreciate it and be grateful for the oppor- tunity. Astrid Hana 4A HISTORY DEPARTMENT The History Department of the Eureka High School offers three courses: United States History, Ancient History and Mod- ern History. The course in United States History is required for graduation and 77 out of the 297 pupils taking work in the History Department are enrolled in United States History classes. "An American History" by David Seville Muzzey is used as the text in the United States History classes. The course in Ancient History has prov- ed itself to be very popular, as there are at present 117 pupils enrolled in 5 classes. "Early European History" by Hutton Webster is used as the text, and is sup- plemented by special reports, lantern lec- tures and outside reference work by the students. The students begin with a study of prehistoric man, learn of the various ancient peoples and follow the subsequent developments in European history up to the eighteenth century. From this point, with a slight review the subject is continued to- the present times by Charles Downer Hazen in "Mod- ern Europe" which is employed as a text in the Modern History Classes. The class- es in Modern History also have occasional discussions of present day happenings in order that the student may keep in touch with rec-ent history. Although History is one of the strictly academic subjects taught in the school, there are many advantages to be gained by studying it. The knowledge which it affords of the strengths and weaknesses of the various types of government is inval- uable to the future citizen. In addition, it enables the student to more closely un- derstand people as a whole. It gives breadth and sympathy to the outlook and culture to the mind. It enables him to bet- ter understand current events and to re- alize that many present conditions have their root in the past. The United States History classes and some of the Ancient History classes are taught by Miss Cecile Clarke, the head of the department. The rest of the Ancient History classes and all of the Modern His- tory classes are taught by Miss Snorin. sswx NNN X S .X 4 Z a W Vf Q f, X, X.

At present, two years of high school Spanish and one year of college Spanish are being taught. Every semester the -en- rollment increases. French, has, moreover, become a thing of the past, as there is now no class in this language. In the beginning classes in Spanish, Espinosa and Allen's two books, "Elementary Spanish Grammar" and "Beginning Spanish" are used. Wilkins and Luria's "Lecturas Fa- ciles" is also used. In the second year classes, "El Capitan Veneno" by Alarcon is studied, along with G. W. Umphrey's "Spanish Prose Composition" and Selgas' Mariposa Blanca" and Jose Marmol's "Amalia". Hills and Ford's "First Span- ish Course" is employed by the students of' the Hfth term, Of college course, for rapid review. "Por Tierras Mejicanas" by Uribe-Troncoso, "Tres Comedias" by by J. Brenavente, "El Teatro de Ensueno" and "Cancion de Cuna", both by M. Sierra, and "Spanish Composition" by Crawford are also used. In the sixth term more difiicult works are studied. Since Mexico, Central America, and South America are geographically near us. it is not difficult to realize what a great asset an understanding of the Spanish language proves itself to anyone entering the business world. A knowledge of this language helps us to establish commercial, social and peaceful relations with our near- est neighbors. The habits, customs, art, and literature of many millions are better understood and appreciated when we know Spanish. . For us on the Pacific coast Spanish has not only a commercial value, greater than any other foreign language, but it provides cultural development also, since the his- tory of our beautiful state is Spanish. Latin, too, is being taught. A two year course may be taken, although there is one student who has continued her study into the third year. Students intending to enter a profession will find Latin not only useful, but very essential. To the student who has no professional aspir- ations, it proves valuable in everyday life, for Latin is a most living "dead" language. Many an English word may be defined, many a grammatical construction under- stood, by recalling a Latin word or rule of grammar. In addition to its value as an aid in the study of English, Latin is a "mental excercise", a thing which every wide-awake person needs. The beginning class in Latin uses Col- lar and Daniel's "First Year Latin". Baker and Ingles' "Latin Compositionu, and Rolfe and Dennison's "Latin Reader" are employed in the second year classes. MATHEMATICS DEPARTMENT At present, there are 364 students en- the pupils gain a clear understanding of rolled in the Mathematics Department. Of the realations between the use of lines, let- this number 197 are Freshman, enrolled in nine classes. In these classes, the fun- damentals of mathematics are taught and ters and numbers. Six sophomore classes, with a total enrollment of 126 students, take care of the students who have con- -so S av X . , p x who ,SAMS-,T at twiki Q X Z' is . X:3xN.5N' -:XSS zwbxmxtx tinued into second year mathematics. In this course, the students are drilled in geo- metric principles along with some advanced algebra. In the first two years, Ernest Breslich's "Course in First Year Math- ematics" and "Course in Second Year Mathematics" are used. The remaining number of students, 41 in all, are enrolled in the classes in more advanced work. There is a year course of- fered in second year algebra. Credit may be received for a 'half year's work in this course. Six months courses in both solid geometry and trigonometry are also given. The solid geometry class starts in August, while the course in trigonometry starts every January. This course will be found to be very essential to any student intend- ing to enter the Engineering department of a university. Wells and Hart's book,"Sec- ond Course in Algebra" is employed in the third year of mathematics. The fourth year mathematics classes use "Plane Trigonome- try and Tables" by George Wentworth and Hart, David Eugene Smith, and "Solid Ge- ometry" by Wells and Hart. A clear understanding of mathematics is X N 5 5 1 N N is X W X S c s xxx X Y N X XX xx X NN Ykdw XV xk -. .X of use to the students. To begin with, it is of great practical value. The principles of mathematics are frequently -employed in every day life. For this reason, the teach- ers have aimed to make the courses as prac- tical as possible. The student is made to realize the connection between an abstruse geometric theorem and the very practical operation of finding the area of a circle. Mathematics also cultivates the reasoning power of the students, helps them to form neat orderly habits of work, leads them to inquire into the truth of hearsay facts and makes them see the universe with a broad- er outlook. There are at present four teachers in charge of this department, they are Miss Fitzell, head of the department, Miss Mere- dith, Miss Craig and Mr. Frye. We should be greatly indebted to these teachers for the trials and tribulations thru which they have passed in attempting to enlighten us concerning the mysteries of this important and most necessary science. Mathematics is probably surpassed in importance by no subject, with the possible exception of English. SCIENCE DEPARTMENT It will be easier to treat the science de- partment in three sections:-general science, biological science and physical science. The general science courses are primarily intended for those students who do not wish to take the more advanced science courses They are taught by Miss Boies and include a general survey of the field of science. The courses in biology and zoology are taught by Miss Reston. The biology courses in which Hunter's "Civic Biology" is used as a text, consists of a study of the various classes of plant and animal life with special stress on the application of biology to prob- lems of public and personal health. The physical sciences, chemistry and physics, are taught by Mr. Morgan. The chemistry class of this semester is divided into two groups, the general group and the engineering group. Both of these groups study the fundamental principals of chem- istry, using Newell's "Practical Chemistry" as a text and supplementing it with outside references. ss f Z sl , X N . or fr . 2 1 cf wma: 2X- -Sh' 2 Q: ,..,x N fm. WF N, .W wi was A r, N K W , ' ' v ,l' 'Fault OUR LIBRARY o To the Freshman, the holy of holies, never to be penetrated, to the Sophomore, a place to acquire needed knowledge, to the Junior, a place to have a good time or rest, to the Senior, a place to Wholly dis- gard as containing superfluous knowledge -this in short describes our library. By the student, the library is often un- derestimated, sometimes wholly disregard- ed. Assignments are being given constant- ly in history, English and science The references in these assignments are all to be found in the library. Our library con- tains about 3,000 volumes, yet many books which are sorely needed are not on the shelves. Today S500 could be spent to advdntage for books which the library should have but cannot afford. In addition, reference books on physical and political science are out of date almost as soon as written and it is, therefore, necessary constantly to replace books on these sub- jects which are out of date before they are worn out. The library now takes 28 mag- azines, magazines along more interesting l-ines than before. Such topics as radio, auto mechanics, cooking and current events are treated at length in the mag- azines now available. Yet students often consider that the magazines are intended to be mutilated. Each day approximately 200 people spend a period in the library, in addition to those who take out books for study in their respective classrooms. It is interest- ing to note that these people use books on English and physical sciences freely and frequently, while many excellent books on political science and civil government are woefully neglected. It often seems that the privileges of the library are abused by many. Miss Manning says, "They think I run a combination hostess house and social center and that it is up to them to put on a vaudeville stunt." Repeated instructions to go else- where at noon have had no effect and the more forward still persist in breaking rules. If one would 'only stop to think, one would realize that to prevent some one else from studying is to do the other fellow a dire injustice. Let us then re- solve to do our part in making the school, and incidentally the library, a better place to be in. Let us take more advantage of the wonderful opportunities which the library has to offer and every day unearth some new and precious treasure in this wonderland of books.

New ssc X THE COMMERCIAL DEPARTMENT At the present time, the commercial de-' partmerlt is one of the largest departments in our school This department aims to prepare its students in such a manner that, upon graduation, they wi-ll be fitted to fill responsible positions. The salesmanfship course, held from 8 to 9 A. M., probably fits the students for con- tact with the public better than any of the other courses of the department. This course is conducted in cooperation with the local stores, which has made it possible for the student to gain practical experience on sales days and on Saturdays. One day there were 32 students from this department working in our local stores, and there are about fifteen employed regularly on Saturdays. In this class there are ap- proximately 40 students. The bookkeeping department aims not only to train the pupils in the principles of accounting and business procedure, but al- so to develop habits in neatness, self-reli- ance and concentration. There are about 160 pupils taking work in this department. Closely related to the courses in book- keeping is the shorthand course. -This course tends toward the development of initiative and ability in handling' business problems, and the formation of correct habits and standard work. From this course students are graduated who are well fitted to perform the various duties of a stenographer or secretary in a business office. Another course offered in the commer- cial department is that of business arith- metic. In this course, the students are drill- ed in rapid calculation and on practical bus' iness problems. This course is open to spec- ial students. J ust recently than has been installed in the high school an employment department. Through this department students who have successfully completed their courses are able to obtain positions. By means of this agency, the commercial department comes in contact with the business world and the needs of the employers are more clearly understood, One of the most important departments in our School of Commerce is that of typing. In the beginning of this course, music is used in order to attain proper' rhythm. In more advanced classes, speed and accuracy are the goals for which the students aim.. Both Remington and Under- wood machines arc used.. Prizes have been awarded by the Remington and Underwood Companies to the students who have suc- ceeded in attaining the prescribed stand,- ard of speed and accuracy. The Remington Company grants initial certificates when the student writes at the rate of 25 words per minute or more, for a period of 10 minutes, with less than five mistakes. The card cases are given for 40 words or over, under the same condition. The Gold Medal is obtained for 56 words per minute or over. Initial certificates are granted by the Underwood Company to students when they succeed in writing 30 words a minute for a period of 15 minutes. Medals are awarded when 40 words per minute are made for the same length of time. Bars are given when the student attains the speed of 50 words a minute for a 15 minute period.

The department is turning out a great deal of work. Just recently a 64-page book, with DEPARTMENT a large number of tables and inserts, enti- tled "A School Building Survey and Schoolhonsing Program for Eureka, Cali- fornia", was printed for the Board of Edu- cation, in relation to the proposed school bond issue. Three papers are being print- ed, the "Girls' League Leaflet" and the "Eureka High School News", and a paper for the Part-Time Department Previous- ly all of the printing had to be done out- side of the school. A great many forms for the High School, Winship School and Grammar Schools, and Board of Educa- tion are handled, besides much work for the organizations in the school, which :' T-in YT X A ,b , .MW Q- . , , SS x p Nylxx -1 xg X Q S NX J it Q Q S S , "" 1 X T ,g 1 Vg i S X 1 4. o X 1 1, -Q ,. mxw -w w x X XXQN VB- 5 'Alu UI la fwy 1 Y if I f Z!

MECHANICAL DRAWING In the Mechanical Drawing classes, in struction is given in Free Hand lettering, using the standard form of letters used in commercial ofiices. Efficient instrument practice is taught and insisted upon, and the fundamental principles of Perspective Drawing, Isomet- ric Drawing and Orthographic Drawing ap- plied to practical problems, comprise the acquaint with the drawing, to apply of draw- first year's work. The object is to the students during the first year different phases of mechanical so that the students may be able at an early date, their knowledge ing to the practical problems that come up in different shop courses. All students registered in the shop work, except the special students who plan to spend but two years in school, are required to take the course in mechanical drawing. For the special students, acourse in shop sketching is given. All of the drawing students receive the instruction in the fundamentals of draw- ing, and later, those who look forward to- ward architecure, or to some one of the building trades as a life occupation, are permitted to specialize in architectural drawing. For the students who plan to follow any of the engineering professions or who elect to enter the metal working trades, there is a course in machine draughting known as "sheet metal draught- ing." It is also taught to those who are es- pecially interested in Sheet Metal work. The department is equipped with an up to date Blueprint machine, and the stud- ents make their own blueprints from the tracings which they themselves make from original drawings. Careful attention is given to accuracy and neatness, whether the work is done in pencil or ink. WOODWORKING In the woodworking department instruc- tion is offered in joinery and effiicient tool practice to all who expect to receive credit for work done in this departmentg stud- ents are taught a wise sequence of tool operations, and a degree of accuracy is insisted upon that is acceptable in regu- lar commercial shops. The beginning stud. ents spend the greater part of the first term at bench work with hand tools, learn- ing how to sharpen and handle the tools wisely and efficiently. The instruction is largely individual and students are encour- aged to proceed as rapidly as is possible and consistent with good work. After the hand work in joinery is com- pleted, the students are instructed in the use of the woodworking machines, and op- portunity provided for the gaining of actual experience at the use of these machines. In the cabinet making course the stud- ents are encouraged to develop their own designs under the careful guidance of the instructors, all designs are checked for ac- curacy and details, then worked out, af- ter which the cutting bills are made and the students are ready to proceed with the actual work. Students who wish to specialize in car- pentry are given instruction in the con- struction of window and door frames, floor P W WX xfg I QRQ5 t framing. Models are made to reduced scale, thus enabling the student to actually ap- ply the instruction given to real problems. Although it is impossible for the school to turn out full fledged carpenters and cabin- etmakers, the students are given a good foundation upon which to build in case they enter upon the actual work of the trades. MACHINE SHOP V PRACTICE Our machine shop course affords the students the opportunity for instruction and practice in hand work at the bench with hammer, cold chisel and file and a few other hand tools, and at the metal working machines with which the shop is equipped, these machines are the screw cutting lathes, shaper, drill press sensitive drill, milling machine and universal grind- er. Students learn to sharpen their own tools for the particular type of work to be done whether in brass, cast iron or steel. The mathematics of the machine work is given much attention so that students are enabled to figure out for themselves the necessary changes for cutting different screw threads, the number of teeth on the gears etc., and practical work is provided in the making of the new parts to replace worn parts of old machines, automobiles and the like. BLACKSMITHING The school shops are equipped with five forges and anvils besides the necessary tongs and hand tools for practically all forms of blacksmith work, many of the tools and other metal parts needed in oth- er departments of the school are made here. f ffl!

The course deals with the fundamentals of electricity as applied to practical electrical work in all of its phases. Battery work is included with ample apparatus for giving instruction and practice in battery repair and maintenance. Throughout the entire department, the students are required to devote eight weeks per year to some project or work with the experience necessary to make the instruction effective is provided, and not only do the students benefit, but also the school and the community. Many of the necessary drawings are made in the Mechanical drawing section, these same drawings being used in carry- ing out the work in the different shops. Many interesting articles have been made by the students for their own use as Well as much having been accomplished for the school. Several fine pieces of furniture are now nearing completion in the cabinet shop. Last, but by no means, least there is the sheet metal working section. The enroll- ment is not large as in some sections as this work is quite new. New equipment is being added this spring and it will be possible to take care of more students in the fall. The work has proved interesting and the de- mand for this work is increasing among the students. Practically throughout the entire school can be seen evidence of the work of the In- dustrial Arts department. Cases frames, shelves, basket ball back stops, gymnasium apparatus, many articles of furniture and other things to numerous to mention. sx if y xiii Ur i' T is is - T, . .' X N.

However, we find both of these departments modernly and conveniently equipped. The cooking laboratory is on the base- ment iloor of the building and has spa- cious windows on the north and east. Each student is supplied with a complete cook- ing outfit. Those in the cooking depart- ment not only receive instructions in how to prepare food attractively, but also study the different classes of food, their func- tions in the body and the amount of each required by the body. Included in the cookery department is a dining room, the furnishings of which were made possible through the coopera- tion of some of the other departments. The dining table chairs, and candle sticks were made by the Manual Training De- partmentg while the trays, fiower borders, and other decorations were contributed by the Art Department. Here the students receive practice in the serving of meals. They also act as hostesses at teas and lun- cheons served at various occasions through- out the term, the formal dinner to the members of the Board of Education and their wives, coming as a climax. In this way, the students not only learn to serve correctly and with ease but also gain ex- perience in quantity cookery. The sewing room is also on the base- ment f'loor and has east and south ex- posures. At the rear of this work room are large cutting tablesg on the south side is a row of seven sewing machines. The rest of the room is filled with small sew- ing tables and lockers, one of which is as- signed to each girl. There is also a small fitting room, supplied with full length mir- rors. This room is used when fitting gar- ments. Not only is practical sewing taught, but also the art of dressmaking. Students are taught to select becoming fabrics and colors and to recognize styles which will look well on themselves. Each pupil is required to keep a notebook, containing valuable notes and samples of the various stitches, seams, iinishings, etc. The essential stitches are first taught: then a simple piece of work is begun. Each piece of work gradually becomes more dif- ficult, until the student finds that she is able to make a dress with comparatively little trouble. Our domestic science department thus teaches both the practical and theoretical side of sewing and cooking, whereby the girls become not only capable but accom- plished. sql. i ,, - x W X X V X i.

When the law went into effect in California in 1920, there was skepticism concerning the practica- of such a scheme. Now after four much bility years, this type of school has proved its to the people of the state. value The Part-time school is an attempt to solve the problem of the minor who through some unfortunate circumstance has been forced to drop out of the regular day school and become a producer. It en- ables the youth to work and support him- self and others dependent upon him and at the same time look forward to a better job. In the part-time school he can in- crease his trade knowledge and prepare himself for a more skilled occupation. There are many boys and girls who drop out of school because they are tired of study and they desire to earn money. Often these young people find that there are no possibilities in the work which they are doing without further education, so they decide to re-enter school and take special courses which are related to the particular line of work in which they are engaged. This is where the teachers in the part-time school have a great opportunity in assisting young people in choosing a trade or profession and in advising them just how to proceed to acquire the kind of training they should have. For the foreign-born youth, the part- iime school has been a great help. Here he can receive individual instruction. If such a student were placed in regular classes, he would be greatly handicapped m competition with English speaking stud- ents. It is astonishing to see the rapid pro- gress made by European students when placed in part-time classes. These young people generally attend school daily. The part-time school is a very different institution from the regular school. The gr-eat difference lies in the fact that the part-time student is given a chance to take the work he likes best, while the regular student, because he is looking' towards gra- duation, must take subjects which he may not -enjoy. The teacher of working child- ren knows the circumstances which caused them to leave school. She knows that the majority of these boys and girls will not return to any kind of a school after leav- ing Part-time, so every effort is made to give them whatever will do them the most good. V A great deal of the instruction in Part- time has been in the nature of an incen- tive to urge the boy and girl forward. While in some cases these youths return to school, others are stimulated to study by them- selves outside of working hours. The number of subjects which can suc- cessfully be taught in a Part-time school is very large, indeed. It has been proved that the fundamental principles of a trade can be taught in four hours a week, if the stu- dent is employed as a helper in some occu- such as a plumber, bricklayer or car- What he learns in school can be practical daily use and there is no to forget. In many schools of the pation penter. put to chance state, young people over part-time age who had left school discovered that they could receive trade instruction and have enrolled in Part-time schools for more than four hours a week. The fact that Part-time is more than a T I ww-N s---.X Q Nr- My . 5, 1. X N X Q v' -' ri, ' xnxx. sr X if . . ' Q is , its X X s Q ess XX: K f school and different from other schools makes the position of a director a difficult one. This person must not only be ac- quainted with the field of occupations, but must be a deep student of human nature. He must be able to help the student over- come his difficulties and assist him in find- ing his life work. Placement and employ- ment are therefore of first importance and the one in charge of this department finds that it is no small undertaking to place the right person in the right job. Another field of endeavor in which a Part-time director must engage is that of organizing and supervising recreational activities. Every effort must be put forth to discourage the "gang" type of social 4 w life. The same element of getting together can be transferred into group games and social dances. There is nothing better than frequent parties where pupils can get acquainted and have good times in the right kind of way. While there are still many weak points in Part-time, it has been of great assistance to many young people in helping them find employment. It has be-en proved conclusive- ly that in California returning to school each week for a period of two years means more than merely putting in time -it means that there are endless possibilities in "four hours a week". Clyde Hollcraft fPart-time studentb NIGHT SCHOOL The night school offers a variety of sub- jects this year and is proving of benefit to a large number of persons. Among the commercial subjects taught are ac- counting, bookkeeping, shorthand, typing, and salesmanship. The classes in sales- manship work in cooperation with the mer- chants of the city. There are three large classes in English for foreigners in which many foreigners are taught the rudiments of English. There is also a class, in.Cit- izenship in charge of, Mr. Albee, where ciples of the United States Constitution. The Industrial Arts Department offers courses in woodworking, auto mechanics, auto theory, machine shop, mechanical drawing and auto ignition. The. auto- mobile merchants of this city have lent many new automobiles for demonstrations in the auto ignition class. The Domestic Science department offers courses in sew- ing dietetics for nurses, millinery. Courses are also offered in Spanish, mathematics, 4 N 0 .4 4--4.155:-3,,3c.5spe5,?ggg.g1Q5'.9!3 .

ORGANIZATIONS A MESSAGE FROM THE STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT In closing my year as president of the S.udent Body, I wish on behalf of the officers to thank the students for their loyal support during the past year. Thru the cooperation of the Student Body much has been accomplished. First, the financial difficulties which be- set us have been overcome thru the sale of Student Body tickets which were placed in the hands of few students and dis- tributed among the various classes. It is interesting to note that the upper class- men were not successful in their efforts to sell the tickets, but the Freshmen de- serve credit for their part in making the drive a success. Secondly, the social functions have been successful and enjoyable. Especially note- worthy among the events of the year were the class dances and the Student Body dance. These dances have caused a better spirit among the students and have helped to banish the cliques that are found in our school. However, as far as athletics are con- cerned, the past year as a whole has not been so successful. Although much interest in athletic activities has been shown by the students, there are some branches of ath- letics which have been neglected. For example, in tennis little interest has been shown, but in track more interest has been shown due to the competition between the various classes and also the because of the new coach who has had a large squad training dailyg and the boys are showing more interest in other branches of ath- letics this year. The girls however deserve much credit for the fine showing which they have made. Another problem which faces us at this time is the relations between the Student Body and the Student Council. There has been a great misconception as to the relationship between the Student Body and Student Council. The Student Council rep- resents the Student Body in all matters of legislation for the benefit of the students. However, this fact has been miscontrued but there should be no misunderstanding as long as the Council is doing its duty e-- ficiently. Because of the size of the Stu- dent Body, it is wholly impossible to con- duct student affairs from the floor of the assembly. Hence, the school has been forced to adopt a representative form of government for expediency. That this system of government shall not detract from the democracy of our school is fur- ther assured by the initiative and the ref- erendum. A well organized Student Council would. prove of gr-eat benefit to this institution. as the Council is the representative of the Student Body and is entitled to act for the Student Body in all matters. Consequent- ly, the students should use great care in choosing the members of the Council and the choice should be made from those who have previously shown their ability to serve' their respective classes efficiently.

XXX X THE MTJTION PICTURE COMMITTEE The members of this committee are as follows: Newell Benton, Chairman . Catherine Gross Ted Hamby Mr. Morgan, Faculty Adviser. This committee has charge of securing pictures to be shown Pat school, and also takes care of the motion picture machine. The profits gained from the motion pictures .go to the Student Body Treasury. The pie tures given have been huge successes both from a financial and social standpoint. The following is a list of the pictures and the date on which each was shown: February 15th.

This committee has the power to require from each of the team captains or other heads of organizations which have to do with the spending of money a list of what it will be needed for. This list must meet with the approval of the committee, It is also the duty of this committee to audit the books of the Treasurer and of the Business Manager of the Sequoia and of the Athletic Managers.

Of all the green freshjes, I believe that the bunch which came in then were the greenist of any that ever entered the Eu- reka High. They semed so scared that the Sophomores were not a bit slow in taking advantage of such a splendid opportunity and you who are reading these notes will easily guess what those poor little lambs had to endure. They were especially anxious about their initation and their pre- decesors didn't give them any hopes ofr an easy let-off when it came time for their re- ception. The Freshman Reception was a great success but tat is another story and so I shall leave it. I really believe though that theanticipation was harder on those little fellows than the real thing. Those of you who have been thru the mill, I am sure, will appreciate the truth of my statement. I shall say nothing about the athletics as that can be found in full in other parts' of this annual. Once each month some class gave a dance in the afternoon. Evening dances are against the rules and regulations laid S 3 - Q- , i ..- .. f BY THE A"CAT" down by the faculty of this school. The 4B Classs gave the first afternoon dance of the season. The next dance was under the auspices of the 4A Class and the Spec- ial students. This second dance appeared to be quite a success and I am sure that everyone that attended it had a very pleas- ant afternoon. The last dance before Christmas was given by the 3B's, at which they estab- lished the idea of having the dances on the new gym Hoor. Lee's Merrymakers furn- ished the music for this dance and I heard no complaints from the upartakers of the light fantastic." From time to time during the Fall Sem- ester, there were assemblies whn we had to som one make a speech or listen to a lecture as to how we sshould act. The most pleasing occasion was an assembbly held in thhe gymnasium for the purpose of lis- tening to an instructor in dancing. She was a very good talker, keeping the fioor only about five minutes and then allowing us to dance the rest of the time. I believe that I shall have to stop here and leave the rest to my successsor, or he will have nothing to write about.

Generally speaking, four .years -do not mean much or seem Hong, ibut l!IlllCh has happened to us in that length of time. We have been aided, repri- imanded when necessary or otherwise, and Lguided by two able advisors, Miss Marion G. Renshaw, whose unbounded enthusiasm has helped us all along our way, and Miss Irma Craig, who has ever been ready to do :anything for the class. Our first year, Howard Hensel took the Ehelm as president. At the Freshmen re- fception, we were weighed in the balance, and it was found that no matter what else we might prove to be, we were at least good sports. Our first real opportunity to show our stuff came with the Carnival. We there introduced our class specialty hot dogs. We also ran a Freshie play- fhouse, sold candy and incidentally made more money than any otherclass. We put out a successful Telescope and gave 'two picnics during this year, a feat which surprised the other classes. Sophomore year found us with our Zranks depleted, but we were still in pos- session of our old pep. Under the leader- ship of Verna Smith we put our shoulders to the wheel and upheld our class scholar- ship standards with good success. Almost everyone turned out to the Bonfire Rally and the lucky serpentine which followed it. The Second Carnival came and with it another financial success. When our Junior year came, We had lost our timidity and wanted to play around a little, but there came a pressing need for money, as we had to give a xbaiiquet for the Seniors when they left in the spring. Randolph Smith was our president this ear, and he began our 'everlasting cam- paign for -money by candy, and hot dog sales, concerts and dances. Our efforts were so rewarded that when the Junior- Senior -Banquet took place, we were able to give the best ever. At last our Senior y'e'a1r came and found us changed to dignified students, who never cut or come late to school but' who always know our lessons! Our 'officers Fares President ........... 1 - 1 .-..

We did our share in helping' with the par- ade for the Junior High school bonds on March ath. We planned another dance for April. In athletics we have turned out a good number each year. We have also talken a great part in political affairs of the school in '23 and '24. This year we have the honor of having the President, Secretary, and Editor of the Sequoia in our class. This is ending' our high school career. We have tried to do our part-we have made our little successes and failures- there is much we could have done--and much we have not done-but we have at least made the attemptt in X WW ixh at wi S X C Si X -is X xx xt Q X N ,S N X R X px X X ps NN tb X?

After this initia- tion, which took place at the Freshman Reception, the members of the class took little interest in high school adairs, for they were either too timid or too modest to pretend to know or do anything of val- ue to the school. As second semester Fresh- men, these same students gained a little more self confidence, but it was as 2B's that th-ey really began to gain the esteem of their fellow students by showing pep. The present 4B's were also famous for successful class parties, for in those days parties could be held in the name of the school off the school grounds. Not only 4B's, but many of the other students at- tended these parties and enjoyed the plea- sure of swimming, dancing and eating. Most of these parties were held at the Yacht Club. The Sophomores, perhaps owed most of their success to their president, Constance Porter and their Class Advisers, Miss Her- ron and Mr. Morgan. It was through the suggestion of the Advisers that the class introduced the idea of selling refreshments at the athletic events held in Eureka. Other oiiicers during this period of the class history were Henrietta Schwab, Sec- retaryg Virginia Simpson, Treasurer, and Ruth Cartwright, Student Council mem- ber. As Juniors, the present 4B Class con- tinued to give class parties and to hold class picnics, one at Camp Bauer, and one at Strong's Station, and one at Elk River. Although the members of the class were exceedingly active during their Junior year the most important event was the Junior Senior banquet, which the Juniors gave in honor of the Seniors. The Advis- ers during the Junior Year were Miss Herron, Mr. Morgan, and Miss Poindex- ter. The officers were Harold Campbell, President, Beatrice Hiniker, Secretary: and Edna Nordeck, Treasurer, and Charles Duck, Student Council Member. The 4B class at present has lost several of its members through the last term's graduation, but it has lost none of its "pep". It proved that it was still the fore- most class in the school to have one hun- dred percent of its members buy Student Body Tickets and, by doing so, it was given a banner that was to fiy for one week in front of the Eureka High School Building. The members of the class hope with the aid of their Advisers, Mr. Morgan and Miss Borg, to keep up their good re- cord until th-ey graduate. The present class oliicers are James Simpson, Presi- dent, Harold Larsen, Secretaryg Albert Kaste, Treasurerg and Virginia Simpson, Student Council Member. Virginia Simpson 3B CLASS In January, 1922, the present 3B Class made its debut in Eureka High School life. As green as most Freshmen and evidently considered as fresh, we were given five ad- visers to keep us in our places: Miss Fitzell, Miss Tilley, Miss Powell, Miss Clarke and Mr. Ludlum. At the end of the first seme- ster, however, Miss Powell and Miss Clarke were replaced by Miss Meredith. Gradu- ally these advisers have been removed or have been replaced until at present time our advisers are Miss Snorin, who has been with the class since August, and Miss Poin- dexter, who began in January.

One of the first problems that confronted this Fmshie class was that of the Carnival to be gym. After a great class came to the Slide, one slide for the low price of a providing a stunt for held that spring in the deal of thought, the :front with the Freshie a nickel. Considering slide, we felt that our stunt was a great success because it brought in large returns. When the Sophmore year dawned it found us the same as ever, minus the great :fear which overwhelmed us as Freshmen. We gave many candy sales and one very successful "Weenie" sale. During the last part of the year, the class responded well to a request that each class contribute something to a fund for paying the hos- pital bills of disabled football heroes. Though our class did not lead the school in the contest for selling Student Body Tickets, nevertheless it did not bring up the rear. This year we gave the iirst dance of the season which turned out to be a grand success and at which everyone, we are sure, had a good time. At various times we've been up and doing: once we gave a Weenie Sale, then we furnished an en- joyable program for one of the Student Body Meetings: and last of all, We decor- ated a very effective float for the School Bonds Parade. We, especially the girls, have not been "deadnecks" in the athletic line either, in our Freshmen year it was our fair sex who captured the interclass baseball and track cups. In our Sophomore year we again had athletic teams. This time not even the made recordsg and sad to say, this year we have done no gymnastic stunt to perpet- uate our names. What this class will do in its Junior year and in its Senior year rests in the Hands of Fate. 3A CLASS. It seems that we all entertain some pet theory regarding life. In his moments of study, Shakespeare delved into the mvs- teries of existence and finally came to the conclusion that we are all actors in the scene of life with the world for a stage. High School is but one act in the play of life --each class a scene. We are the third scene --Junior A. Our stage directors, our advisors along the way, are: Miss Smith, Miss Reston, and Mr. Metzler. Our leading characters, our officers, are: President .......r ..... L ucille Duncan Secretary ........ . .... Dorothy Stewart Treasurer .................... Helen Fleishman Council Member ................ Arthur Stewart Our players are fifty-nine in number. They have stood by their advisers faith- fully under all circumstances and hav'- been a credit to the school. Perhaps the thing we have to be most proud of is the fact that we won the Scholarship cup of the school this year. That, after all, is what really counts in school and, when averaging our records, Mr. Jensen found that we ranked very high. One of the high lights in the history of the class has been James Wahl, who has won for us more than one pennant. Altogether, we hope that ours has been a successful scene in the Act of High School life. X .fo rxtww r 19' Y X N A X f R r YY . X N - S X ,sx X x Q X X R :sb L xx t X ,X . xx X 5. wx X . X N , K. S.

Meetings of this class are held regularly in Room 12 and, in as much as the class is large, a great number of the members take an active interest in the activities of the class and the class meetings. The ZA Cfass did its share in boosting the school bond election by taking part in the parade which was held on March lith. They had a float, which represented an overcrowded school room, and which carried a large sign, "Note the crowded. conditions. Take pity on us." This class has not exerted itself to ac- complish anything' of importance aside from what is already mentionedi once in awhile it gives a candy saleg but it has ambitious plans for the future and may some day have "a place in the sun". dances for their own enjoyment. Our ob- ject in having these parties and dances is to encourage cooperation among the members of our class. So far We have accomplished our object. By having the 2B's members cooperate with each other, the school as well as the class will be benefitted. Chalmers Crichton. o .

Julius Paul, repre- senting our class took the prize in the Freshman-Sophomore Oratorical Contest last fall. Under the head of events of interest nothing can be said about the class that is not justified. Several candy sales, parties and dances were suggested, but none of them ever materialized. However, the class entqred a float in the Bond Election Par- ade, which was the only important thing that the class ever did. The advisers for the class are Miss Boise, Miss Swanson, Mr. Frye and Mr. Shepard, indeed four able advisers. ,But what could they accom- plish with a class like ours. But watch our smoke when we get started next year. I Taking it as a whole, the class has led a very inactive year and we hope that next year will find our class more active than the year ending June, Ninteen Hundred and Twenty-Four. Robert Lee, Pres. EDITOR'S NOTE-We hope that the Freshmen have tak-en to heart the things which we tell them about themselfes. 1B CLASS We are as green as green can well be. But what of it? We have noticed the color "green" seems to have a firm place in the scheme of things. It enters into the composition of the rainbow. Our fav- orite Hower, the wild rose, is content with delicate leaves of green, our favorite vege- table, the pi-plant, proudly displays its green sprouts to the morning sun. Our predecessors also must have, had some af- fection for this attractive shade of pig- ment, since it forms the background of our lovely high school pennants and ban- ners. The little verse, so expressive of our childhood condition of times, might well be changed to- The rose is redg i The violets blueg Their leaves are green, And so are you, without any special disgrace being attach- ed to it, even for the Seniors. The 1B's number fifty-nine which might be suggestive of the fifty-nine bottles hanging on the wall, or was it forty-nine? No matter, the idea is there just the same 5 the real difference between us and the bottles being that we are still hanging, and may we continue to hang with bull- dog tenacity, if such a thing is possible for a mere bottle, until we are, filled full of knowledge and goodness and common sense, and graduate from the high school, and become respected citizens and are elected to ofiice. In the matter of getting the things, the 1B's are not in the least backwards, to put it modestly yet convincingly. Go- ing back to the subject of hanging, which well may be one Vital to us at sometime in our lives, the 1B's certainly "bring it" on i . .Q is i X .X -X X SN X 5 - X X S . V 5 XXXRWQX :X .

Our comedians were inimitable and caused many a laugh on the side lines that echoed right down in the ballot box-but wait! 1 -,i you notice our spiffy caps and sashes? What an attractive lot of budding geniuses we were anyway if I do say it myself, and by the way, I've never noticed any partic- ular display of modesty on the part of the other classes when speaking of their ex- ploitsg so why should we, suppress the truth? Besides the parade, we have had our part in other affairs of importance, our orator, Allan McCurdy, having established a reputation in the recent contest in the assembly and according to our humble opinion he should have had the "laurel x reazh placed upon his brow" or hung. upon an ear, but we realize that it was difficult for the judges to overlook, "curls and things" which are eternally the woman's weapon in argument and talk fields of any kind whatsoever. Also we have several likely candidates for track who, we are sure, will represent us well. Now why should not we mortals be proud?

Wm. Frohman This class has for its advisers, Miss Tilley, Mrs. Nason and Miss Duame. Al- though it was only organized last August, it has 32.80 in its treasury, and is rated for 100 per cent in buying Student Body Tickets. This class has shown its school spirit by contributing more money than any other class to the fund which was started LO pay the hospital bills of boys injured in playing football. The Special Commercial group had a float in the parade, which was a part of the campaign to boost the recent bond election. It represented a modern of'Iice with all its equipment. The "Illustrated Daily Herald" of San Francisco says, "A group of high school girls decorated a float with modern commercial equipment such as schools do not possess but should have." This is an incorrect statement as all the "modern commercial equipment" with which the Hoat was decorated belongs to the commer- cial department of this school and is used daily by its students. ' There are about one hundred members of this class at the present time. Q X Q m X, YQ, Q . 2 Q ' Q - Q ,X X .

This committee also has charge of the Hi Jinx. This year the Jinx was held in the gymnasium, March 29, and was a huge success. Everyone had a good time and much credit for the splendid spirit which existed between the girls must be given to the Program Committee. The Hospital Committee makes life a little more cheerful for the invalids in the County, Union Labor and Sequoia Hospi- tals. Books, magazines, flowers and toys are taken to the patients in these hospitals and every third Sunday a program is given at each of the hospitals. The members of this committee gave a pie sale and also a candy sale, the proceeds of which went toward buying scissors, paste, etc. for scrapbooks for the children in the hospi- tals. The children make the scrapbooks, but the committee supplies the materials. The Hospitality Committee entertains visiting teams and also shows any visiting parents around the school. It is subdivid- ed into the committees to welcome teams and visitors and to serve luncheons. Three luncheons have been served to' football teams and one luncheon to the tennis players. This committee has also done much to relieve the hard feelings which exists at times between the schools of the county. The Red Cross Committee works in co- operation with the Welfare D-apartment. There are fourteen girls on this commit- tee, six of which come to sew the first period Tuesday, while the other eight sew during the third period Thursday. This term, the members of this committee have finished and turned into Miss Belasleyl, Head of the Welfare Department, twenty- five bands, six slips, tive gowns, fifteen . W squares and a woolen dress for an eight- year-old girl. They also have on hand twenty-three. squares which are finished but not turned in, and twenty-nine squares which. are almost complete. AThe Associated Charities Committee works in cooperation with the Associated Charities. The members have brought clothes, shoes, toys, etc., which were either taken directly to the What Not Shop or to aprivate family where help was needed. They have also mended arlicles from this shop. Last Thanksgiving eight baskets of food were collected and distributed to nee- dy families. At Christmas time boxes were placed in the hall and students brought food to fill the baskets which were taken by the members of this com- mittee to various families. The duties of the Housekeeping Com- mittee are to keep the teachers' room, the teachers' dining room and the girls' base- ment clean. They have also a girls' rest room which they keep in order. There are about twenty-seven girls on this commit- tee. The Part-time Committee was created in order to give general assistance to Miss Guidery. The Part-time students had giv- en four parties when this annual went to press, each party being a great success. The plan was for the members of the com- mittee to assist with the decorating for the parties, help with the refreshments and N ,maid s.., . ,x i ' ldf Z L, f A , ff f V21 A fix 4: Z 7 Zz, , ,351 ,W w4 225 fidpiiimylirr f A teach the boys to dance, but as yet com- plete cooperation betweein the members of the committee and.FtheM.1.?art-time students is lacking. . . The Girls' League Leaflet Committee has charge of publishing the 'Girls' League Leaflet! It is published once a month. Its staff is as follows:-Ruth Ballard, editor- in-chiefg Freda Ray, Ruth Williams and Frela Shields, Associate Editors: Miss Ren- shaw, Faculty Adviser. There have been eight issues published so far and a profit of three dollars and sixty-two cents has been made. The Leaflet is original, in- teresting, little paper and is getting bet- ter all the time. The Advisory Committee' assigns each Freshman girl to an upper classman who sees that she is registered properly on the first day of school and then acts as an all round friend and adviser. The American Legion Committee coop- erates with the American Legion in col- lecting magazines, jellies, candies, etc. to send away to disabled Veterans of the World War. Since the Girls' League is not a money making organization, the com- mittee has not had any money to spend in its work. It has, however, been aided by Lincoln's, Zook's, Delaney Sz Young's, The Bell and the Kandy Kitchen, who have generously contributed magazines, candy and other comforts for the soldiers.

It was composed of a senior, Ruth Shaw, a junior, Elizabeth Neall, and a sophomore, Edgar Samons, appointed by Mr. Jensen, with Miss Craig as faculty member. This year the personnel of the committee is: Senior member and chairman-Eliza beth Neall. Junior member-Edgar Samons. Sophomore member-Guy Helmke. Faculty member-Miss Craig. The,committee recently prepared a gen- eral statement, which enumerates its aims as follows: KD Proper observance of patriotic holi- days. Q25 Education along political lines. 135 Memorizing the Flag Pledge, Flag Code and correct manner of Flag Salute. Q45 Ability to sing patriotic songs from memory. 159 Knowledge of great Americans. f6J Intelligent and sympathetic attitude towards the foreigner. Q77 Duty of preserving our democracy. With these aims in view, the committee has given two Lincoln Day programs, a .Decoration Day program, a program com- memorating Roosevelt's birthday, and a Flag Raising. The Flag Raising was one of the most spectacular events of the year. On this occasion the students formed on the lawn and stood at attention while the flag was being raised. They then gave the Flag Pledge and the Star-Spangled Banner. Next the students returned to ' the assembly where a program was given, consisting of: Your Flag and My Flag ........

Taking this fact into consideration, a progressive student of the Eureka High School desired a museum. This student, Miss Hally Jones, spoke to Mr. Jensen, who readily gave his consent. A committee was selec- ted, consisting of Miss Hally Jones, Chair- mang Miss Ethel Manning, Faculty Mem- berg Ansil Rankin. Ex-Ofiicio Member, Lil- lian Green, Regular Member. The com- mittee carried on correspondence with many schools in the southern part of the state having museums in order to get material on how to organize museums, what types of curios are collected and how to display them. Another committee was later appointed to find ways of fin- ancing the museum. Candy sales and "Weenie" sales were very successful. Upon the graduation of Miss Hally Jones, the committe could not carry on its work properly. Accordingly, a new com- mittee Was organized. From each class in the school there was elected a student to represent the committee. The commit- tee now stands as follows: Chairman, Lillian Green Faculty member, Miss Manning Ex-Officio, Ansil Rankin 4B, Chas. Duck 3A, Sidney Dorais 3B, Ray McAfee 2A, Austin Hescock 2B, Helen Lidstone George Green 1A, 1B, Gordon Perske Commercial, Grace Kirkemo vis N, ' c N' X X Q fe E ei 3 Ci U2 ei C3 3 , X 1 The purpose of the committee, in gen- eral, is to collect curios, to encourage the cooperation of the students of the school and the people of this community in this work, secure proper exhibition cases, and a means of financing the musesum. The articles secured by the committee for the museum are to be held for a term of six months or a year, or to be held as long as the owner deems it advisable. Our museum has been equipped with a few museum cases. These cases are now used for a collection of birds which were purchasd last year. The collection consists of nearly every known bird in Humboldt County. It really is a wonderful collec- tion, and should inspire the pride of each student of the high school. It is the in- tention of the committee to specialize in Humboldt curios rather than a mixture from all over the state. Plans, at present, are being made for a Humboldt insect collection. We are taking it for granted that the students of the Eureka High School are interested in this project, but if they are not, we should like to remind them that this enterprise is of the school, by the school and for the good of the school. Let us get in and make it the best school mu- seum in Northern California. Talk it! Sing it! Dream it! Then Provide it! Get behind your school and put this museum project over the top!

Ages serve and pass to silence Which they ne'er shall issue-from. ln one unceasing process moves the years, As ceaseless as the slowly falling tears They write and steal into the past- sublime. The seasons come and go with certain tread, As the year up its scroll and passes+on, Each season takes it's place and Passes, silent as the dead- Irs joy, its grief, its mirth, forever gone. Comes spring with all the bloom of youth- And bursting forth- With life exuberant in the bud, the wing, the throatg The rushing brook the speeding fiock e'er wingingrnorth, When life seems pregnant in the silent And abundant in the sounded note. Spring passes, follows summer-with Blighting of fulfilling of spring's hopes. Withered blade of bounteous verdure in the field: Intense summer kills or quickens Flowering buds on spring's fresh slopes, And determines what spring's hopes in autumn yield. l Autumn enters, with the reaping of gaing Birds wing southward with the Sought-for brood, or but-alone. Springtime, summer now are ended, Autumn's here with prize or pain, For reaping time has come to claim it's, own, E'er the winter settles down, With its entombing snow, The sap has downward flowed and Nature's closed her eyes- Beneath her icy shroud, she is laid low Until in springtime resurrection she shall rise. -Frela Shields i. TIME O Time! that over all holds sway, Thou givest but also takest away. Thou givest a knowledge of physical things But destroyest the flight of :Eancy's wings. Life once was clothed in golden dreams, Now more prosaic and drab it seems,- Only in memory now there gleams The soft dim light. E'en in the light of common day A beauty over all did play, The sky had a tint of azure blue That none but childhood's eyes e'er knew' Will the beating, pulsing heart of time, The forward sweep of the years, Carry us to things more sublime . Than childhood's joys and tears? March! March! March! 0 Time, In thy flight throughout the yearsg Pause not in thy silent tread To heed our human thoughts and tears!

' W A, i"W'N.' mNm SUPREME EGOTISM Song of Youth Flowers have withered, trees have decayed, Millions of mortals in graves have been layed, Millions of wood-folk to Death have drawn nigh, But though they have perished, I ne'er shall die. Tutgank-amen, Victoria, Napoleon, Great rulers, but now have passed on With nameless beggars, 'neath the earth they lie. But I cannot, will not ever die. Heart-sent through the num'rous narrow lanes, Warm blood gushes through my veins. Hark! Heart's pounding like the ocean! Surely 'tis perpetual motion! Certainly less foolish for to think .. Of the ocean shrinking from its brink, Evaporating, than -to believe My 'soul will sometime a retrieve receive. What is Death, but a shade, who, yawning, Waits at doors till men come, donning Gray, grave garments, to creep to his feet, Yielding, from dreading a dream to meet. Ruth Ballard. J THE OSPREY Fearless and kean of eye: Swift as the wind of the sea, And sure in your drive as the cormorant's dive From the cliffs by the calm Western sea. Light wings as the sea birds lot, Yet talons of steel have thee, And sure in their clasp as the eagle's fierce grasp, As you stoop to the deep Western sea. Far from the haunts of man, Lone as the leret tree, And few hear the Plunge as from on high you lunge l To the white of the surf of the sea. Wand'rer of waves and of winds Yet inland your hold must be. Although you're of land, you've the look of the strand Where the white breakers roll' from the sea. You are hunted and slain by man For you catch up the fish from the sea. But if he lived as you, and worked hard and as true, He'd be steadfast and pure as the sea.

' On your smaller sisters we're not so keen Because they're filled with dangerous gas- oline. And they gallop and trollop across the bay Just like the famous "One Hoss Shay."

She sings of trees, And birds and flowers, too, And tells that Spring is here To tint the fields anew. On and on, With ne'er a thought of care, She sings the whole day thru A merry, laughing air. J THE PARTING Do you ever think when parting, how I miss you, miss you so? How I miss your merry laughter and your eyes of radiant glow? How I long to press your lips and fold you softly in my arms, Just to glory in possessing you and all your dear, dear charms! Do you ever think when parting how I miss your sweet caress, That comes gently, almost shyly, as your little head I press? How I miss your soft, sweet voice, husky from o'er powering love, And your radiant hair a-glowing, touch- ed by moonbeams from above. I miss your peach-bloom cheeks, of such delicate pink and white, And your dark, curling lashes, shading blue eyes from the light, Your soft, rounding chin, with its dimple ever there, ' Brings back memories of my mother, once so blooming and so fair. How I long to tell the story that's been told so oft before, And to hear those church bells ringing, as they rang so sweet of yore. Ah! My darling, there will be no need for "parting at the gate"- We will walk through life together, for there is no need to wait. Jewell Hooks Break, break, break!

I catch a fleeting gleam- 'Tis my dear mother's smile of love. Clouds of grief may gather round me And no ray of light shine on me, But still no fear my heart will know, For the way will not be lonely: My dear mother's smile will guide me, As through the storms of life I go. Her guiding hand has lead me on And taught my feet the narrow way, And though the guiding hand has gone Her blessed smile will always stay. Her sweet eyes will always guide me, Though storms of grief may sometimes hide me, As oft they did in days of yore. Oh, Mother's smile and Mother's love, As pure and true as Heaven above, Be with me till life's trials are o'er! --Bertha Cralle - How often when I've heard a gentle strain, That caused my thoughts- to dwell on distant things, Has it throughout the day hummed in my brain, But when I thought to whistle or to sing, It slipped away and mixed with other strain. But still beneath, it dwell a separate thing. Like music, thoughts of friendships we have had With ones who now from daily things are gone Keep running 'neath the flow of other thoughtsg Oft blazing bright, but always smold- erlng on. The daily cares of life may often dim, But mem'ries of old friends will ne'er be gone.

Blessing on this school of ours, Where students study by the hours, Where the text books, worn thread-bare, Give each student just his share. Oftentimes he lags behind, Ah!

That this statement is true, and that Amy Lowell's poems are not mechanical but spontaneous, seems to be proved by the following examples. "Everyone has his fancies, I suppose, And tonight I should like to walk round a towered city Blowing a blue silver trumpet." No methodical rhythm here, no keeping time to the faultless beats of a metronome, "They come and tell me that the snow flowers are falling. reed-blind is roll-ed high, and I gaze at the beautiful, glittering, prime- val snow, Whitening the distance, confusing the stone steps and the courtyard." These few lines show the author's close association with nature, and her ability to reproduce her observations in poignant verse. The last quotation is an example of Amy Lowell's personal experience, which might be well remembered. "No wandering half-forgotten moment passed, No volume read, no music heard, but IIOW Bears fruit in deeper comprehension." M. Uarda Wise. The .. Y ' .

"Whatcha goin' to wear to the dance to- night? your blue or pink dress?" She pul- led her gum out at full length and then made her tongue pull it back cleverly. "Say I'm s'posed to be studying hist'ry. Gee! S'awful stuff! Ain't any sense to it." "Say gotta letter here. Wanta see it kids? You know who from." A group of girls gathered around her and we soon heard squeals of delight. "Say kid, canya throw a baseball? I can't neither. Can't throw, run, jump nor play games." There was a pause while she regained her breath. Then- "'S1y, kid, that teacher don't needa think I'm going to do this math. 'Stoo hard." She clattered over the gymnasium floor, singing "Last Night on the Back Porch'.'. "Ever dance to that? Swell piece. Miss.the time of your life if you don't," she said. "Say don't you kids dance?

The moon, a huge egg- shaped ball, glowed like a yellow pumpkin thru the occasional grey veil of cloud that hung over it. e For towards the south, out- lined in soft,-'grey purple, the long moun- tains stood like a wall against the star- sprinkled sky. The road wound along the side of the treeless mountain, the lights from the machine 'sending a yellow gleam over the thick dust and sun dried grass. In the solitary pine above us, a screech owl wailedg another answered. The white warm silence fell again. With the cold breeze that swept up the canyon, came the shuddering cry of the coyote on the op- posite mountain. Looking down, I saw the silver side of of the mountain slanting into the velvety black of the motionless trees. The neigh- boring mountains stood a sooty black against the farther hills. The moonlight threw clear silvery mist over everything, turning the tireless trees to silver. Then, as I leaned from the machine, I felt the throb of those thousands of primi- tive lives, living, dying in the outward, gloomy calm and peace of the forest. Aw- some, yet fascinating, that stillness which throbbed with the undercurrent of creep- ing, living things in the shadows, seemed to rear-:1 s ea ,,.. y endrhl arounl o le- - tendrils which pulled and pulled. The atmosphere was charged with peace. It is this peace which no man-made cathe- dral can bring into the soul,-the peace of the mountains. Leno Moll. surpassed by her knowledge of dancing.

Its ancient doorway is a work of art despite the fact that the steps and walk are in ruins. The oak floors within are as sound as when they were new and the luxurious furnishings are Shabby from hegileet, hilt clearly reveal their former splendor. Although Mr. Caldwalader, the Owner, was not, at the time of this story, accus- tomed even to visit the place, he gave a house party there to oblige Miss Kather- ine Burke, a young lady who was extreme- ly interested in colonial architecture. When Mr. Caldwalader asked this friend which she considered the most beautiful room in the house, she decided in favor of the quaint front room upstairs which was to be her bedroom. But in all her careful ex- Qmination she had not noticed the initials MG. C." carved on the mantel or the bullet marks in the wall. She did not know that on this very night, two hundred and fifty years before, George Galwalader, the First, had carved his initials on the mantel- piece and shot himself in this same room. Accordingly, she retired without the least supposition that anything unusual would happen during the night. It was breakfast time the next morning and the conversation had drifted to super- natural appearances. "Mrs. Clarke," said someone, turning to the lady who had occupied the room next to Miss Burke's, "It's your turn to enter- tain us with a ghost story. Couldn't it be a personal experience?" Mrs. Clarke turn- ed pale' ,,.A.1. J- fl . , "Last night," she began nervously, "I was very restless. For some reason I lay awake for hours unable to compose my- self, and when at last I sank into a doze, my sleep was disturbed by a peculiar noise in the front yard. Then I heard Miss Burke spring out of bed, lock her door and windows and bolt her shutters. Im- mediately the sound was repeated. This time there was a thumping on the door- step and then footsteps. Thinking that Miss Burke might be frightened by these happenings, I rose to go to her assistance when I heard her return to bed. An in- stant later I heard footsteps on the stairs. Slowly, quietly, somebody or something was mounting the oak staircase. The step was heavy like a man's, yet light enough to indicate that the walker must be young and well poised. Now he reached the landing and was walking up the hall to- ward Miss Burke's room. Now the step was quicker and lighter. Who could it be? 'Probably one of the guests who had been out late', I thought, but before I could reinforce my waning courage with the assertion, I caught sight of the ghost of George Calwalader the first. He did not act as other ghosts. There was no hid- eousness about him as he passed my door smiling triumphantly. Indeed, he looked not unlike a lover attempting to take his lady by surprise. While I still stood para- lyzed with fear, I heard him step inside Miss Burke's room and slowly approach the corner of the room in which I knew her bed had been placed. For a moment I was unable to move and then believing my fears to be absurd, I mustered enough courage to return to bed. Yet still I heard the steps approaching what I believ- ed to be Miss Burke's bed, now they had V 4, I ' X s s X X 5. X Q D1 s Si Q A A' N X Ns sb fe -, X Q 15 .. . Q X N X X X X N X X :X X , X .

"After these incidents I shut my eyes and tried to force myself to sleep, but before I even found a comfortable posi- tion, I was disturbed by a fierce unearthly gust of wind. Opening my eyes, I saw dart past the door a young man and wom- an. The young man was dressed in the evening attire of a colonial gentleman. The young woman was arrayed as a bride dress, rose point veil and She was blushing like with white satin gorgeous pearls. a rose. In fact, I never saw anything so lovely" said Mrs. long tale, "and beautiful picture Clarke in concluding her would have enjoyed the if the .man had not been a perfect likeness of old George Calwala- der, even to the bullet mark in his head, and if the girl had not been a perfect like- ness of Katherine Burke." "By the way where is Kate?" another guest asked. "She is sleeping in the old front room where George shot himself and maybe it has been too much for her." "I'll go and look," volunteered young Mrs. Calwalader. When she arrived on the scene, she found the door locked and as no amount of knocking produced a reply, the room was broken into. There it was, exactly as Miss Burke had found it, except that the windows were fastened securely from the inside. Everything was in its place and not an article was missing, but the bed was empty and the young lady was no- where to be found. Examination by detec- tives and police oiiicers failed to reveal a single clue. Not a fingerprint or foot- print was discernible. Not an article was missing or out of place and nothing ad- ditional was found. The bed itself was in perfect order and to this day nobody 1 1 knows what has become of Katherine Burke and the ghost that once frequented that old colonial house. But those who are versed in spirit-lore whisper that George Calwalader killed himself because he could not marry his true love, that he haunted the house in search of her and that, when he 'found her reincarnation, he claimed her as his own. ' The Teller of Tales THE SUNSET ' Each day brings new pictures for one's memory book, but of all, the most beautiful is the sunset. The sunset is like the last spark of life before the death in its grand and glorious effort to linger on a little longer before sinking into oblivion. In this last endeavor the sun gives forth its most beautiful gran- deur, splashing the sky with radiant colors of crimson, purple and gold interwoven. All the brilliant colors, with the sun hanging like a ball of fire in their midst, are reflected in the windows of the little country village. Over the tall dark pines in the east a yellow glow is cast and the green hills take on a violet tinge of the western sky. And down in the valley the last rays of the sunset make the river a glittering,, golden thread, winding its way to the far-off, billowy ocean. Slowly the colors fade from crimson to palest pink, purple and soft orchid, until at last they all fade into the mellow cream of an evening sky, and the sun, having wrapped its brilliantly tinted robes about it, slips beneath the horizon, leaving only pale beauty and quietude behind it. The sun is gone, but the remembrance of its glorious setting makes one feel that it is but the golden seal at the end of a perfect day. Edith Stock. s. -X Est Na .

There are several im- portant events of the past which make it hard to establish recognition at the pres- ent time. While Diaz reigned in Mexico neighbor- Iy spirits were in evidence between Mexico and the United States. But after Diaz had been president for eight successive terms of thirty-four years, he was over- thrown in a revolution which put Madero into power. Madero was soon disposed of, however, by an autocratic, despotic gen- eral, Victoriano Huerta. This man was a ruthless, dissipated general of revolution- ary nature and Indian blood flowed in his veins. I-luerta attempted to establish his pow- er in the Mexican States, but President Wilson refused to recognize the Huerta government, although twenty-six foreign nations had recognized it. Henry Lane Wilson advised the Wilson administration to follow suit, but President Wilson ans- wered by sending John Lind of Minnesota as a special agent to Mexico to propose terms to settle the anarchy then promin- ent there. If Huerta would not become a candidate for the election of president, which should be a general and free elec- tion, the United States would promise to recognize the Mexican Government. Hu- erta's only reply was that he had the alle- giance of twenty-two of the twenty-seven states of Mexico, with an army of approxi- mately 80,000 men, with which he could c...ny pu. oo..n .eoe.l1on. The United Staies was a'ked to ignore these disturb- ances and have an ambassador sent to MEXICO the general elections, however, Huerta's real character came- out, when on October 10, 1913, he invaded the Assembly with armed forces, impris- gned one hundred deputies and proclaimed himself ruler of Mexico. Wilson adopted the policy of "watchful wailing." This was more or less difficult to maintain as Mexico was steadily becom- ing more difficult to manage. Revolutions occurred every place and practically over nothing and American lives and proper- ties were constantly in danger. At length, an incident occurred which not only dis- turbed Wilson and Mexico, but put Huerta character in a still darker light. The U.S.S. Dolphin, flying the Star Spangled Banner, landed at Tampico, April, 1914, in order to buy some gasoline. The whole boatload of American sailors were seized and car- ried oif and imprisoned. Rear Admiral Mayo demanded the release of the men and as an apology to the United States de- manded Huerta to salute the flag. Huerta released all the men, but would not salute the Hag. On April 20, forces were ordered to occupy Vera Cruz to maintain Amer- ican dignity. Meantime, Huerta had assumed the presidency pending the election which was declared void. Governor Carranza of Coa- huila refused adherence to the Huerta Government, and was followed by other states. At length, war commenced, many people were killed and much American property was seized. Gradually General Carranza and Villa gained control of the northern states. Before this, however, the A.B.C. Powers, composing delegates from Argentine, Brazil and Chile, met I-Iuerta's delegates and the United Sfa,es' at Mexico.

On June 2, at the same confer- ence a provisional government was sug- gested in which there should be a presi- dent and four leading men for the cabinet, who had been neutral during the past revo- lution. As a result of the conference, Huerta resigned and departed from Mex- ico. Carranza occupied the capitol, November 26, 1914, and became ruler of the Mexican states. The Carranza Government was recognized by the United States, October 20, 1915. As Carranza's fortunes increased so did Villa's decrease. March 10, 1916, marked an epoch in the United States bordermen's lives which will never be for- gotten. The town of Columbus, New Mex- ico was raided by Vil1a's ruffians, who killed seven soldiers, twelve citizens and and wounded scores of others. With Carranza's permission a punitive expedition was sent to Mexico by the United States in search of Villa. Villa, however, was so clever as to always just elude our soldiers. Before long Carranza repented his act and dmanded withdrawal of our troops. He charged us with design on his power. Carranza's power steadily grew and March 1917 found him elected first president of Mexico under the new provisional constitution. Carranza became more and more de- fiant to the United States and on May 31, he ordered all American troops out of Mexico. President Wilson refused, saying that the troops were retained there for the purpose of protecting American citizens. In New London, Connecticut, an Amer- ican Commission was held. On November 23, at this meeting, all the United States troops were ordered to withdraw from Mexico. As nothing else could be done this order had to be obeyed and forthwith all troops were withdrawn. We can see by these illustrations why Mexico should or should not have been recognized in the past. However, these questions have all been taken care of and new questions have arisen which render it still more difficult to become established on a recognizable basis. Nevertheless, Mexico and the United States are steadily increasing in friendly attitudes, and we hope that recognition in the present will not be as difficult to gain as in the past. Carranza had a good friend, both from a social and political viewpoint. This friend was General Obregon. All went well with both of them until the World War broke out. Carranza's allegiance went with Germany, and the cords that bound Carranza's and 0bregon's friend- ship were severed. This was not all that caused the overthrow of Carranza and the dissolution of the two great generals' friendship. General Carranza had promis- ed that he would allow a free and fair elec- tion. He broke his promise, and deliberate- ly tried to force upon the country as his successor his ambassador to the United States, who had resided in Arizona for sev- eral years. Obregon revolted and the Car- ranza Government was overthrown. Under the Constitution of 1917, Obregon was said to be ineligible for the presidency of Mexico, because of the clause which reads that no person shall become President of Mexico if he has revolted against a leg- al government of Mexico. Nevertheless he is there, and is getting along fairly Well. General Obregon rose to power with rad- icals and with radicals has been his work. Q . , ft R, - YQ 2 :Q EE S lx W X -M 5 Q it " . 5 x N N Y N X X x as f ws,+sX smews' N t X X is it as Nearly all of the important figures in his Assembly occupied a chair in Carranza's, and all have boasted of the constitution, but now the government was conservative, so was the constitution, is a military dicta- torship and always has been, and probably always shall be unless steps are taken to prevent it from being so. Nevertheless, this form of government is beneficial in one respect to Mexico, for 85 percent of the population can neither read nor write. A military dictatorship has become a neces- sity in Mexican life. This can easily prove why it is such a popular government with Mexicans and foreign nations, in general. The military dictatorship promotes enthu- siasm by the peons, and is enthusiastically received by twenty-six nations. General Obregon inherited several non- recognizable disputes. Among these are the protection of American lives and prop- erties, the monopolization of certain indus- tries, such as the oil well owership question and the banking and national debt prob- lem. In order to understand these several measures the articles and clauses of the Mexican Constitution with references to them shall have to be understood. By these clauses, it can easily be seen why it becomes so hard to recognize Mexico. Mexico can not seem to understand why American lives and properties should be respected and protected. Although Mexi- can citizens have the same rights in the United States as any other person, Mexi- co has different lights on the subject. Mex- ico has the same rights before a court in this country as in its own country and the same right to property. A Mexican can- not be deported without judicial proceed- ings, but the Mexican Constitution of 1917 . U .zrt 5 provides that any foreigner may be expell- ed from Mexico upon ipse dixit of the Pre- sident without judicial proceeding or even an assignment of reason. This is indeed an avowal of property and life rights. A foreigner cannot own land within one hun- dred kilometers of the border, nor within fifty kilometers of the seashore. But there is a restriction placed even upon this. No foreigner can own any real estate unless he agrees to sign a document which avows that he will not appeal to his government in case of argument on matters of sinister importance. Mexico's present Constitu- tion permits confiscation of valid preexis- ting property rights and thus disregards international law. Also under this consti- tition no foreigner may preach any reli- gion in Mexico. Still there is another issue of vital im- portance with which remains a settlement to be made. The national debt of Mexi- co is S250,000,000. The question is: How is Mexico to pay this sum? A plan for this is rapidly being formulated. A committee EDITOR'S NOTE-The essays entitled "Reasons for Recognition of Mexico," and "Conservation of the Forests by the Fed- eral Government," were prepared in the history classes, but are included in the Literary section for convenience. The most important part of the preparation of these papers was the securing of an extensive bibliography, bearing on every phase of the subject in hand. Although we have not been able to include the bibliographies, we wish the reader to bear in mind that the essays were intended to develop the student's ability to collect information, ra- ther than to serve as exercises in composi- tion.

Now comes the question: After all these restrictions why should the United States make any attempts at all to restore rec- ognition to Mexico? Recognition should not be attempted if Mexico re- fuses to protect American lives and prop- erties. Nevertheless there is another side to the question. If it were not for the United States Mexico probably would be crippled, if not paralized, in her attempt to liquidate her assets. The value of American interests in Mexico during the Diaz regime totaled S150,000,000, but to- day our interests have increased so much that the figures tax the imagination to such a great extent that it renders it almost un- believable. The oil business in Mexico ex- ists primarily to American enterprise. Of the S300,000,000 invested in oil S200,000,- 000 is American. The UnitedStates has invested S200,000,000 in mining territory, 850,000,000 in land, and as much more in industrial enterprises, such as public ser- vice, corporations and banks. Oh the other hand, the fact is Mexico in 1921 bought American goods to the amount of 3225,- 000,000 from the United States, and will no doubt buy three times as much each year, after recognition, combined with the fact that within the past year Mexico supplied to the United States millions of barrels of petroleum which were requir- ed to make up deficiencies due to excess consumption over our production, and plus the fact that Mexico like Canada occupies the position of a neighbor, is it not evi- dent that nothing else is of much greater importance to the United States than the Mexican question. If this is the case then, how can recogni- tion be obtained? What the Harding Ad- ministration is striving to achieve is a mu- tual accommodation between the United States and Mexico under which there would be no confiscation of legitimate American vested rights. The crux of the difference lies in the fact that Mexico is loath to sign a treaty of recognition which would in all probability disturb the alleged right vested in monopolies. Secretary Hughes, June 7, 1922, said that a proposed treaty of amity and commerce in which Mexico would agree to safeguard property rights that had existed before the Carranza Constitution of 1917 had been promul- gated, would establish recognition. He did not, however, designate whether he meant land or monopoly rights. The lat- ter is what Mexico objects to. The mak- ing in prop-er form of a treaty recognizing property rights and not monopoly rights would result automatically in recognition. The next point of diiference lies in the fact that Harding desires to make the formal recognition of Mexico coincident with that of the signing of the treaty pledging protection of American rights in properties and lives, whereas President Obregon would like recognition to precede the treaty. As yet nothing has been done on the the question. Nevertheless, the problem is not idle. Obregon refuses to sign a treaty of amity, because he claims, if he did so, he would not last two weeks, which is probably true. This would not result because of action taken by oppos- ing parties, but because his supporters would regard him as a traitor. It can readily be seen that Obregon is resting between the "devil and the deep blue sea." If he signs a treaty of recognition he chances his overthrow, and if he refuses to sign he disdains American recognition. Q, . . x N. w . -mf ' 51. X Q by S. xx S s es. it ss. 55.5. ms. wel What is he going to do? President Obregon recently announced that he would never sign a ,treaty of amity and commerce, because as he said, it is against the Constitution of Mexico to do such a thing, and furthermore, the Presi- dent of Mexico has not the power to sign a treaty. Despite President Obregon's views on the subject, Secretary Hughes has pro- ceeded with plans for a treaty, which will most likely cl-ear up Mexico's present dif- ficulty. Besides the puzzling tangles in Mexico's Constitution, there are other problems which will be subject to adjust- ment. As soon as these problems are set- tled to the satisfaction of both Mexico and the United States, there will be peace and amity existing between the now two conflicting parties. The problems, to be considered, are: 1. The full payment of the bonded debt. 2. The increasing volume of business. 3. News of the peace and progress from south of the Rio Grande and business evi- dence of confidence in Mexico, as to the SouLh Pacific Railroad extention. 4. The expenditure of a 510,000,000 bond issue of American Smelting 8z Re- fining Co. in Mexico. 5. The expenditure of the 815,000,000 for the irrigation planned in Yaqui Valley. With the View of hastening the mutual understanding between Mexico and the United States, a commission of two Ameri- cans and two Mexicans has been appoint- ed. It is to be held in Mexico City, in the near future. The men who represent 'his commission are, of the United States, Messrs. Charles Beecher Warren and John Barton Payne, of Mexico, Raymond X X N X x X ,gg fa X W MW 'A f , 2 ZW4 W Ross and Fernando Gonzalez Roa. All four men are known to be very efficient and able in managing affairs of this sort, and it is hoped that they will succeed in bringing into existence a settlement which will be welcomed not only by the United States and Mexico, but by every country and nation in the World. Notwithstanding the fact that the Uni- ted S.ates Government has not recognized the Mexican Government, the following states are trading with Mexico: - 2. California. 1. Texas. 3. Arizona. 4. Michigan. 5. Illinois. 6. Kentucky. J. Oklahoma. Trading is being exchanged between the cities of Houston, St. Louis, New Or- leans, Boston, Philadelphia, of the United States, and Laredo, Cordoba, Durango, Mexico City, Orizaba, Aguascalientes, Monterey, San Luis Potosi, Vera Cruz, and Torreon of Mexico. Probably in the near future nearly all of the cities of the United States will be trading with some city of Mexico. It remains to be seen, what course will be pursued. The United States and Mexico were for a few months in what might be termed as the hand holding stage. Rec- ognition seemed assured. At the close of the United States and Mexican Com- mission recognition seemed nearer. The Commission was virtually a huge success as proclaimed by prominent Mexican news- papers. The death of President Harding did not shake the faith of Mexico in the belief that recognition is forthcoming. It x xi A ess ' X S N s V s s Q -4 X X , it ' X s X X n A 'X X . X N . X X W Q .

Mexico has already been rec- eognied by Spain and various Latin Ameri- can Republics Mr. Hoover's Department of Commerce will send trade agents into Mexico to determine the country's special needs for manufactured products. The :selling of ,goods in Mexico is not all there Lis to peace with Mexico. The chief benefit is from Mexican investments acress the hborder. Mr. Ingersoll estimates the Uni- ited States' total investments in .Mexico vat 580D,000,,000. Now, another great revolution has aris- en in Mexico. The troubble seems to have started when the .Federal Government ze- zfused to recognize the legality of an elec- ltion in San Luis Potosi. De la Huerta, :accepting his claim as an interference in state sovereignty, protested to Obregon. He was not sutisiied with the result, so he resigned as Minister of Finance. Qbregon appointed Alberto Pani as Huerw'-s suc- cessor, and a breach between Huerta and Obregon ensued. Then General Callas announcd his candidacy for president. Ob- regon supported it and trouble began. Ac- cusing Obregou of using Federal machin- ery in electing Calles, Huertn announced his candidacy as president Being a sim- ple citizen Hnerta would probably rule 4 4 over Mexico by divil methods, ibut Callas, on the other hand, would either adopt pro- letarian. or militar-istic form of dictator- ship, either that of Mussolini or Lenin. This -revolt seems more like a family affair. .Frem one ,poi-nt of view the strug- gle is between radical and conservative elements and ideas. From another point it marks a serious development in the evo- lution of relationship between the United States and Mexico. The .people of Mexico do not want to fight. They would rather have security in highways, order in streets and protection of homes. Democracy, So- cialism and reforms .interest them .less than justice and' order. 'When a Mexican Gandidiw for the presidency throws his sombrero into the ring, a machine ,gun goes with it." The present movement is the most formidable since that which overthrew the Carranza, Government in 1920. Since Mexico achiev- ed her independence in 1821, only three of her twenty-two presidents have entered onine without military aid. According to the Constitution fa person is not eligible for ,president unless he has held an oiiicial position for six months prevlious to the 'presidential cmrlpaign. This would eliminate Calles. All Mexico and the United States is watching Obre- gon's next step. If Qbregon keeps on supportng Calles, he is breaking the law. If he tries to continue in power, he is breaking the law. Nobody leonas up as Preuident-if President Obregon wins. The rebellion led by Huerta is almost suppressed. 0bregon's forces succeeded in taking Vera Cruz, La Hnertafs strong- hold. After the taking of Guadalajara, President Coolidge urged Honorable Chas. . x'x.ii,5 5 Y n- T I . X , . . , . 5 i .' X X X ? 'N ? N it X N A 'A xx, X wig, 'XXWXX xywx .sk Rx 574,11 W'-..4!'ll B. Warren to return as ambassador. Then Tuxpam came under control of the Feder- als. This freed the entire oil region of rebel control and broke the backbone of the rebel revolution. Meantime, the United States had sent arms to Mexico to Obregon's forces. This was a severe blow to Huerta, but reports soon followed that Huerta had smuggled arms from France, Spain, England and Germany into Mexico. Secretary Hughes defended his action saying that President Obregon has made good and deserves these arms for the purpose of discourag- ing warfare and establishing law and or- der. Secretary Hughes had only two courses to follow. 1. To intervene and assume control of the whole country. 2. To assist those Mexican forces which -X ill promote prosperity and justice among Mexicans. The United States would not be warranted in trying the first course un- til the second had been pursued. The second has been followed, and now it re- mains to be seen if the first course will follow. Lillian Green.- CONSERVATION OF THE FORESTS "What is a forest?" How often this question has been asked and how often it has been answered. The popular reply is, briefly, that a forest is "a large tract of woodland or a vast group of growing trees, grown for economic purposes only." This of course, does not include the fact that it might be used for the pasturage of cattle and sheep, nor the protection of city water supplies. nor the hundred other utilities which have been greatly promoted by the activities of the forest service. This popular misconception is a serious handicap toward legislation and adminis- Qration for the forest. Many difficulties have grown out of this ignorance. Most people do not seem to be able to under- stand that fishing, camping and scenery are just as much a part of a forest as the trees, and that when the forests are gone, these things are lost, as well as the trees. How this definition became established is a mystery, for it has no foundation ei- ther in law, forest practice or common us- age. However a definition that does con- form with the actual facts in the United States of today is that a forest is "any tract of land usually characterized by a predominant growth of trees, maintained and managed for various human utilities." Only forty years ago, it was the general belief that the forests were inexhaustible. This statement was made by men of high educational standing and by those who were supposed to know of what they were talking. Some even said that it would take approximately three thousand years to exhaust the supply. That this was a rash statement has been doubly proven now, only half a century later. We are now faced by a startling short- age that threatens to entirely use up most of our supply in a few years. The lumber industry is being supported, and has been supported, by old growth timber which will soon be entirely used up, so that sec- ond growth timber will have to be relied on which of course will be extremely inad- eguate in the face of the ever increasing ? f f 7 A 4 Z J iff , f ? f 2- , ! 2 1 2 '1?2jgfzf:::zQ Q f f ' Z W, X Z Z, 4' demand. This timber shortage is not only going to be a threatening thing of the fu- ture but is already being felt in the East and is bound to become more acute as time goes on. Many of the cut-over lands at one time were retimbered by land owners, who had foresight enough to realize the reckless- ness of squandering our forests so unmer- cifully, but averted all the good that might have come of such an act by neglecting them, leaving them victims to storms, fires and the ravages of insects, until now they are producing timber a large part of which is useless and the rest of inferior quality. It is not forty-eight years since Congress first began to realize the need of immed- iate government action if the forests were to be saved, by passing the first forest re- serve law, which -provided not only for the protection and conservation of the trees, but for the protection of the sources of the streams as well. Recently the Snell Bill was passed which provides for a comprehensive program of forest conservation and also provides a complete inventory of what Congress has done and will do. Besides the bills mentioned The Timber Culture Act 1873 and the Forest Reserve Law 1903 have had no definite effect as the forests have continued to be cut and destroyed heedlessly until Congress has felt more ur- gently, than ever before that unless some- thing is done immediately, with a definite result in view, we'll have no more forests. The forest area of the United States is now fixed briefly at 822,238,000 acres of original forest, 137,000,000 acres virgin forest and 112,000,000 acres second grow- th saw timber. Of course there are reasons for the near drawing timber shortage other than the 1 4 heedless cutting by the timber owners. From 1915-1918-1919 the area was con- siderably increased. Storms also do a great amount of damage, more than is re- alized by the majority. Besides these the black beetle is destroying billions of feet of timber around the Pacific coast, particu- larly in the extreme Northwest. The country as an whole is now taking a livelier interest than heretofore in the fate of our forests. Probably the greatest in- terest lies in replanting. Replanting can not of course wholly avert the timber short- age that is drawing near, but it can lessen its severity and shorten its duration. It is probably the most profitable means of con- servation. , V New York leads the other states of the country in conservation. Not only does it produce 5,000,000 trees a year for re- forestation, but many of its paper mills and railroad companies maintain their own nurseries. From 1908-1920 this active state planted 60,000 trees, which means the replanting of about 60,000 acres. Massachusetts reforestation program has also been active for several years. Re- cently the state acquired 10,000 acres to be restocked as rapidly as nursery stock could be grown. In the South, Louisiana leads in refores- tation. A single lumber company planted 300,000 trees. Also educational campaigns are being conducted in the school by lum- ber companies. Probably next in importance to reforesta- tion activities is that of fire preventon. The government and about five to twenty-five states are issuing various kinds of propa- ganda concerning this subject for school children and campers, particularly as the campers cause most of the damage now Y XX , ss ,wx t ss wrought, and the children are easiest? taught, A very brief ssumnaury of what is contain- ed in the majority of these pamphlets is almost necessary, Genelrally speaking the effect of fires, causes of fll-'68, fire preven- tion and the means by which fi-res are de- tected and fought are most extensively dealt upon. When a fire bums through e forest if: lin-ds a gmt deal of material to feed upovnt due to dry grass amd weeds, young trees, old and fallen logs, bits of bark, needles and twigs. Many people believe that it is a gfood thing to bu-rn. up this material, but af- ter the ground has been burned bare, there' is nothing to stop the water from running off the ground after a storm and causing what is called mosion. Not only docs it kill the old standing timber, but also kills the younger growth, which would naturally have supplanted the older timber after it had been cut or destroyed, The two general divisions of the eawses of Fires are those caused by naure and those caused- by mm. The most destructive of nature caused fires is lightning, but by fer' the most serious fires result from the carelessness of man. Camp fires carelessly built often cause the spread of si large for- est fire.

The redwood is not only the oldest living thing on earth but is the taliest, The lumber from the redwood is considered very valua- ble for its bwuty, and doubly so, because of its rarity, as it is found only in Califor- nia amd that in few localities, The Redwoods League was officially or- ganized in San Francisco in 1918. Its pur- poses were to purchase Redwood groves by private subscriptions, to secure a bond is- sue, to buy the finest Redwood groves along state highways, to establish thru federal aid a National Redwoods Park and to encour- age the State to purchase cut-over areas for reforestration. This league has been very successful and has accomplished a great deal of what it set out to do. It has succeed- ed in preserving a few groves for the bene- fit of the generations to come.

' A 'Y H ' s THE GIRLS' GLEE CLUB Under the Eureka High School's'new glee teacher, Miss A. Bernice Tutt, the Girls' Glee- is progressing rapidly. It is :many times larger than ever before. This is due both to the increased enrollment of the school and in the musical ability of the students. The members arei as fol- lows: Caroline Adams Louise Ingalls Mary Akins Helen Lidstone Sharlene Baldock Margaret Marks Beatrice Boydstun Helen Mclntosh Dora Benjamin Sadie Matilla Mona Burgess Bernice Murray Elaine Burnham Audrey Morton Shirley Cameron Rose Marie Nordeck Mildred Clancy Mary Ohmun Fae Clark Constance Porter June Shields Dorothy Stewart Linda Swanson Elizabeth Thompson Charlotte Halpern Treasure Ward Lucille Duncan Marie Edwards Jean Foss Hazel Eskelson Eunice Haver Ruth Watkins Julia Hermanson De Etteg Wing Lucile Hibler Evelyn Wolf Lenore Hill This Glee Club meets for an hour and a half a week, on Tuesday from nine until ten and on Wednesday from one-thirty un- til two: Miss Tutt teaches her pupils a variety of songs, both popular and classi- cal. They are then able to offer a variety of pieces at any entertainment. They usu- ally sing at educational meetings, Forum THE BOYS' GLEE CLUB As always, the Boys' Glee Club of the Eureka High School has proved a great success. This year it is under the leaders ship of Miss Bernice Tutt. Following are the members: Alden Ball Carlin Marsh Carvel Brown . William Morrow Kenneth Brown Walter Ohman Gus Campbell Kenneth Orrell Chalmers Crichton Max Orrell Joseph Eastburn Charles Quilrg Curtis Gillis Irving Rohner Leonard Hultine Kenneth Smith Albert Kaste Arthur Stewart Henry Lane James Wahl Harold Larson Robert Webb Cecil Lee Harold Wilson Robert Lee Ted Worswick This large body meets for one hour on Mondays and Thursdays and sings both popular and classical pieces. They sing at both community and school affairs, and are always enthusiastically welcomed and applauded. Luncheons and always at High School Gra- duations. We believe that no school is complete un- til it has a Glee Club. It gives any of the students who are endowed with musical ability a chance to show others what they can do. It gives gifted students an oppor- tunity to develop themselves. Last but not least, it helps to create an atmosphere of culture in the school and community. x W I X X i ts sp X X psf S' S XX' I X X ami so 5 x THE DRCHESTRA The Eureka High School Qrchestra is an organization that we as a school are proud of because of .its efficiency and its large- membership.

Our orchestra plays not only at school functions, such as Student Body Meeting and graduation exercises but also at the Forum Luncheon of the Chamber of Coma rmerces The Eureka High School orchestra is a very good example of what can be accom- plished by a large number of s ulents and an efiicient teacher such as Mr. Flowers, , W, V I V idl .fi 1' , 1' , k . NEW UNIFORMS FOR, BAN'D AND GRCHESTRA The combined band and orchestra of the Eureka High School has recentfy been equipped with handsome uniforms. These uniforms were worn for the first time at the Humboldt State Teachers' College when the orchestra competed with the or- chestras and bands of other schools and won the first prize. The uniforms are to he kept on hangers in the schooi building and, if they are well taken care of by thef students, will undoxtrbtedfy improve the ap- pearance of our orchestra on all publicf occasions for a long' time. To the Parent- Teachers' Association of the E. H. S. are' we indebted for these attractive coats, capes and caps.

Instead, believing we have tried to get in touch with schools in the Middle West and in the East, that we are already rather familiar with what is being done in the West. We .are also attemptng to establish a number -of foreign exchanges. We plan to send copies of the 1924 SEQUOIA to England, Scotland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and France, also to India, British South Africa, Scaadiavia and Japan if we are able 'to locate schools in these countries which are willing to exchange with us. Next year we shall be able to tell you of our many interesting experiences in sending SEQUOIAS around the world. The Exchange Editor 'wishes to acknow- ledge the receipt of the following annuals and thank the many schools which have exchanged with us for their courtesy and friencllness.

" FRESHMAN' RECEPTION The Freshmen Reception was held this year on Friday night, September 21, 1923, with a large crowd in attendance. The reception was the best I ever witnessed and, I understand, the best one ever put on in this School, Due to the fact that in past years, the Sophomores treated the Freshmen so se- verely, each class trying to outdo' the pres- ceeding class, the receptions during the past few years have been placed in the hands of a committee. This committee has always been more lenient with the Fresh- men than was any Sophomore class, but it is not so lenient tlmt it spoils the good time for the audience, This year the committee did not fol- low the time honored custom of initiating the Freshmen in some mean way. Instead, each class in the school acted as a com- mittee to rehearse a stunt to be put on bye an assigned group of "Freshie:s." For the first time in history the Junior College students also took part in the entertain- ment. A contest was arranged and Judges appointed to decide on the best stunt. The Judges were Miss Tutt of the High School, Mrs. Zane of the Winship, and Mr. Vern Moore. All the stunts were so good that the Judges had a hard time deciding on the best one. But the honor was finally granted to the 3A Class for their presen- tation of a dancing school. Much credit for the success of the SA stunt was due to James Wahl, who proved a very successful dancing master: The faculty of the High School aided greatly in the reception by drwsing the Freshies, l'l1 bet they had a lively time dressing some of them, In fact, the most incorrigible were later fed nasty doughnuts as a punishment for their bad behavior. Orville Rees, HALLOWEEN DANCE The 4A Class and the Special Commer- cial Class entertained the students and teachers by giving a dance, Tuesday after- noon, October 30, 1923, from 3 to 5:30. "Lees Merry-Makers" furnished the music for the occasion. Pretty little souvenir dance programs, decorated in Halloween fashion, were given to each one upon en- tering the auditorium. A large crowd was in attendance and everyone professed a good time. , Sybil Look. Early in December 1923, the Freihui'-11 Sophomore Oratorical contest was held. The contestants were as follows:-H Julius Paul from the IB class Fred Bell from the 1A class. Katherine Johnson from the 2B class, Howard Noyes from the 2A class The topics were chosen from the Cu"- rent events and all the speeches were well given. The judges were chosen from the faculty and after their conference decid- ed upon Julius Paul from the 1B class as a promising orator.

SOGIAL ACTIVITIES We, like many other schools, have found dancing to be our most profitable recrea- tion. The schedule which was planned by the ofiice has proved very satisfactory, as it gives each class in its turn its oppor- tunity of giving a dance between the hours of three and five on Tuesday afternoons. The first dance was given October 2, 1923, by the 4B class. The next two dances were given 'by the BB class the dates being November 27, and January 29. On February 6 the Student Body had the pleasure of initiating the Mid-Winter Freshmen. The next "tripping of the toe" was given by the Student Body on February 26 and was, of course, a successful event. Next the 4B class grew ambitious and proceeded to give a dance on the 28th of March. A goodly sum was cleared with- out impairing the enjoyment of the event. Last, but not least, the Girls' League had a very enjoyable Hi Jinx. On March 28, the damsels paraded to the Gym in every style of fancy costume. Dancing was the principal feature of the evening.

THE ESTIMATING COMMITTEE The purpose of this committee is to keep the money of the Student Body in sight. This money, as is the habit of all money, is continually taking wings and flying away before we learn that we have it. The following are the governors and gov- ernesses of the money in the Student Body this term: Julia Hermanson, Chairman Newell Benton Lois Connick Mrs. Nason This term there have not been many meetings of this committee because the money sems to be behaving exceptionally well. Here's hoping that it will continue behaving hereafter. A Hint to the Wise He who wishes to live with the sun should not stay out too late with the daughters.

Among this number were several last year's players so under the capable coaching of George Stone and the leading of Capt. Jewett, Eureka was able to devel- op a team that was second only to the fast Ferndale team. First Game On October 6, Eureka won from For- tuna the first game of the season, played slow. The main feature of the game was Shively's 50 yard run to a touchdown. White also proved that he could play quar- ter. The final score read Eureka 39, For- tuna 12. Second Game On October 13, the second game of the season was played at Eureka against Ferndale. The locals were outplayed by the Ferndale team, who had a much more experienced team. The main feature of the game was Shively's 90-yard run for Eureka's only touchdown. The final score was Ferndale 34, Eureka 6. Third Game On October 20 Eureka played its third game of the season at Arcata. In the first half the game was closely contested but in the last half Eureka had everything hen way. Shively wasn't playing during the first quarter and when he went into the game he seemed to put the necessary punch into the Eureka team. The feat- ure of the game was Captain. .1ewett's re- covery of a fumble, with his 40 yard run for a touchdown. The final. score was Eureka 31, Arcata 13. Fourth Game On October 27 the return game with Fortuna was played at Eureka. This game was the third game won by Eureka. The final score was Eureka 14, Fortuna 0. Fifth Game On November 3 Eureka High played the fifth game of the season at Ferndale. Eureka started oif strong but the aerial. attack put up by the Ferndale team proved to be the undoing of the local squad. Jewett and Wlute starred for Eureka- White made the only score for Eureka with a drop kick. This game was the last chance of Eureka for the championship. The final score was Ferndale 20, Eureka 3. Sixth Game On November 10 Eureka played the last game of the season against Arcata at Eureka. This was the hardest fought game of the season. Shively distinguished himself by making many long gains through Arcata's line. The final score of this last game read, Eureka 25, Arcata 10.

Madge Colfran's fine generalship in the difficult role of side center, and the manner in which she opened up forward play was largely responsible for Eureka's constant- lv large scores. Eileen Hurlbutt secured the touch with regularity and her open court playing improved with each game. BOYS' B A great deal of interest was shown in basketball this year and when Coach David Metzler issued the call for candi- dates about thirty players answered that call. In the unlimited division, K. Brantley was the only veteran left from last year so considering the fact that Mr. Metzler ltad to develop an almost entirely new team, It can be said that the local "hea- vies" had a good season. They were able 'o win three of their games and lost twice Tay one point and the other time by two points. In the limited division, Coach Metzler had both A. Hadley and C. Curry from last year's team so he ,was able to de- velop a team was that easily the class of he county.

Eureka has a galaxy of stars on the track and field that would be hard to duplicate in any -school in this country. The track sea- son opened April lst., with the Girls' Inter- class Meet which was won by the Special Commercial students, with the 2B's second and the 4B's third. The All-Participation Meet at Ferndale on April 26, resulted in a clean sweep for our girls. Alta Huber, Claire Robertson and Madge Coffran car- ried away medals for high point winners. On May 13 Eureka ran off the events of the National Telegraphic Meet. The re- sults were high class in every event, and the girls bettered two world's records, in the 60 yard hurdles by Claire Robertson in 8 4-5 seiiondsg and the 220 yard relay team, consisting of Louise Wolff, Elta Cartwright. Claire Robertson and Leno Moll, in 26-4-5 seconds. Louise Wolfl"s time of 6 2f5f.seconds in the 50 yard dash equals the National Prep School record. Elta Cartwright set a new American rec- ord in the century, running it in the fast time of 11 2-5 seconds. Claire Robertson's leap of 33 feet, 6 inches in the hop, step and jump equals the National Collegiate record in that event. 'V From the showing made by our girls it looks as if some of them will make the trip to London to participate in the Wo- men's Olympiad, if a team is sent to repre- sent the United'tstates..this year. In winning the National Telegraphic meet our girls took first place in eight out of twelve events entered. This is a won- derful thing for this high school and the entire community, and a fine reward to Miss Herron for her faithful work with our girls. The Eureka High School girls have lost but one H. C. I. L. championship during Miss Herron's three and a half years' coaching. The following are some of our girls' scores in the National Telegraphic meet: Louise Wolff, first in the 50 yard- dash. Time 6 2-5 seconds. Equals National Prep record for girls. Elta Cartwright, first in 100 yard dash. Time 11 4-5 seconds. New American rec- ord. Claire Robertson, first in 60 yard hur- dles. Time 8 4-5 seconds. New world's records for girls. Edna Carlson, first in discus throw. Dis- tance 83 feet 2 inches. Claire Robertson, first in Hop, step and jump. Distance 33 feet, 6 inches. New National Prep record, and equals National Collegiate record for girls. 220 yard relay-Eureka first. Time 26 4-5 seconds. New world's record. Team consisting of Wolff, Cartwright, Robertson, and Moll. 250 Medley relay-Eureka first. Time 31 2-5 seconds. Team consisted of Wea- therby, Watkins, Huber and Moll. This established a new National Prep School record. Stella Molash took first place in the ja- velin throw. Distance 83 feet. New Tele- graphic meet record. ' Eureka took second in the 500 yard relay, which was run in 61 3-5 seconds. New Telegraphic meet record.

'23 GIRL S' BA SEBALL The Battefy foi' our girls was composed of Elsie Ray, catchef, and Madge Coffi-an, the best pitcher in the County League. The remainder of the infield, Ellen Mai-tz, Jennie Aho, and A.1ts Huber played beatitifiil ball and made many 2 play that looked impossible. The outfield Carol Pentin, Stella Molash, Veda Elster and Rosie Galli were a classy bunch of fly chasers, all 'possessing' strong' arms, and good battingleyes. The substitutes Mabel Hoover, Ethel Loo, and Helen McIntosh were all high class players. Mabel Hoov- er unquestionably won the series for Aw- V Eureka by her fine' work behind the bat and her timely homer: in the Arcata game.

Only a small number of students turned out, but among' this number were six of last yea.r's play- -ers, so the Eureka players probably would have made as good a showing as any of the other schools .in the county .if they had not had some bad luck. In the first game of the season, Eureka vs. Arcata, Shively, star first-string pitch- er, for the Red and Green, sprained his .ankle while sliding toward home plate. This sprain kept him out of the game for two weeks. This .bit of hard luck took a good deal of the confidence out of the players.: consequently they didn't play their best and steadiest game. Arcata-Eureka, April 5 After practically having put the game -on ice the Eureka High School baseball team went to pieces in the eighth inning .and lost the first game of the season to Arcata by a score of 10 to 11. Wilcox and Taylor were the leading hit- ters for Eureka while Malloy also played a good game for the Red and Green. Fortuna-Eureka, .April 12 Eureka lost its second game of the sea- :son to the fast Fortuna nine by a score 'of 2 to 0. The game was .much more close- .ly contested than it seems from the score. Fortuna made mast of its runs .in the third and fifth .innings whhen they were able to bunch their hits off Stefanini which, coupled with untimely errors, accounted for the number of runs made in these in- nings. The pitching Mike Stefanini for the Red and Green was the main feature of the game. He had substituted for Shive- ly, when the latter sprained his ankle, and .pitched a splendid game. Thompson, pitching for Fortuna, held our team to four hits, two of which were made by Captain Smith. Ferndale-Eureka, April 19 The .Eureka team received its third straight defeat at the hands 'of the Fern- dale nine by a score of 7 to 4. The Eure- 'kans played fair ball and were tied with Ferndale up to the seventh inning, but blew 'up in the last two. The playing of Captain Smith was discouraging and this was the last 'game he played. Brantley pitched a good game for Eu- reka, allowing only five hits. His support was ragged at all times. Arcata-Eureka, April 26 After a season of hard luck the Eureka nine came back and won' the last game ofthe season with Arcata. The score Was 7 to 5 in the Eureka boys' favor. The game was even 'up to the seventh inning, when Eureka made four runs in their half. Shively pitched a good grade of ball, allowing but 'eleven scattered hits. Malloy, Nikon, Coleman and Taylor also played good ball for the Red and Green. The 'Line-up: Coach ,....,.,.,......,,.... Mr. 'Metzler Catcher ....,....,............,..... Q .,...
