4A CLASS WILL
In the name of the faculty, Amen.
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

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

4A CLASS PROPHECY
At last women have succeeded in. attain-
ing their proper position in. social. and
political life. 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-

THE STUDENTS' CIVIC DUTY
As students we show too little school
loyalty, too little sense of responsibility.
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
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
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
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-

tion has been enlarged and its scope in-
creased. The exchange section has been
made strikingly original. To balance these
changes, the joke section has been greatly
expanded and many original features have
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
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-
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.

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-

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.

ENGLISH DEPA RTMENT
What would any school be without an
English department, and what' kind of pu-
pils would 'leave this school to become citi-
zens of the United States, if they could
not speak the English language correctly,
.and if they knew 'nothing -about the devel-
opmentlof the literature of the English
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
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
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-
Ashmuris-Prose Literature for Secon-
Grenfel.1's--Adrift on an Ice-Pan.
Palmefs--Translation of the Odyssey.
Dana's-Two Years Before the Mast.
Mabie's-Heroes Every Child Should
Galey and Flaherty-Poetry of the Peo-
Arnold's-Sohrab and Rustum.
Scott's-Lady of the Lake.
Hart and Perry-Short Stories. '
Sandwick's-How to Study.
For the Sophomore year a selection is
made from the following books:
Galey and Young-Principles and Prog-
Rittenhouse-Little Book of Modern
Dickens-Tale of Two Cities.
Short-Stories by Heyrricks or by Dun-
can, Beck, and Glove.
Shakespeare-Merchant of Venice.

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,
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
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-

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
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
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.

Q XXX if NQS g i LANGUAGE DEPARTMENT
French, the once popular language, is
now being replaced in our schools by Span-
ish. 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
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.
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

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

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-
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

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

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
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.

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
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
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-
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
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'

Our Department of Commerce has also
installed in the school the Printing De-
partment, which is rapidly growing in pop-
ularity, about twenty students have al-
ready been barred for lack of equipment
This year we have installed in this depart-
ment two Linotype machines, n 12x18
Chandler 8: Price printing press, a Boston
wire binder and considerable other materb
ials, such as type, spacing materials, etc.
This course takes a great deal of prac-
tice and there are students who have be-
come quite proficient in typesetting. The
department is turning out a great deal of
work. Just recently a 64-page book, with
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

The Industrial Arts Department offers
courses in Mechancial Drawing, Wood-
working, Machine Shop Practice, Black-
smithing, Automobile, Sheet Metal and
In the Mechanical Drawing classes, in
struction is given in Free Hand lettering,
using the standard form of letters used in
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
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.
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
Students who wish to specialize in car-
pentry are given instruction in the con-
struction of window and door frames, floor
P W WX
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
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-
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.
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

With the beginning of the fall term 1923
a course in electricity was offered for the
first time in this school, the course is a
popular one and the enrollment is heavy.
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
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

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
Practically throughout the entire school

DOMESTIC SCIENCE DEPARTMENT
Cooking and sewing are the only sub-
jects which we teach in our domestic
science department. However, we find
both of these departments modernly and
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-
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

PART TIME SCHOOL
The Part-Time School is a new step in
the field of education. When the law went
into effect in California in 1920, there was
skepticism concerning the practica-
of such a scheme. Now after four
years, this type of school has proved its
to the people of the state.
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
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
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

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
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".

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
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-
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.

,In August 1920, an extremely green,
ffrivolous, scared crowd entered Eureka
Ebiigh School. 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 Senior activities began with a dance
which we cooperated with the special
commercial group. This danc was well
attended and was certainly enjoyed by all.
We did our share in helping' with the par-
ade for the Junior High school bonds on

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.

The history of the present 4B class be-
gan with the initiation into the Student
Body in January, 1921. 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
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-
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.
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.
During our Freshman year the class
president was Lucile Hibler, our Sophmore

While we were Freshmen the class gave
several candy sales for the purpose of rais-
ing money. One of the first problems that
confronted this Fmshie class was that of
the Carnival to be

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
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
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 gi.ls
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.
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

Secretary ........ . .... Dorothy Stewart

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

The advisers for this Sophomore Class
are: Miss Meredith, Miss Manning, Mr
Doren and Mr. Rigast. 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."

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.

Our class is well represented in the orches-
tra and the glee clubs. Julius Paul, repre-
senting our class took the prize in the
Freshman-Sophomore Oratorical Contest
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.
Taking it as a whole, the class has led

year will find our class more active than

EDITOR'S NOTE-We hope that the
Freshmen have tak-en to heart the things
which we tell them about themselfes.
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

comedians were inimitable and caused
many a laugh on the side lines that echoed
right down in the ballot box-but wait!

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

well. Now why should not we mortals be

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

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.

The Girls' League of the Eureka High
School is an organization composed of
all the girls in the high school, the women
of the faculty and theg girls attending

which are held during the vacant school
periods, it has been impossible to arrange

is done in

Committee to visit St. Clair Adams
It is the duty of the program committee
to furnish a program for the League when-
ever it meets. 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
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
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-
The Part-time Committee was created in
order to give general assistance to Miss

mittee to assist with the decorating for
the parties, help with the refreshments and

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

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.

The Americanization Committee was
first organized in the spring of 1923. 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
Junior member-Edgar Samons.
Sophomore member-Guy Helmke.
Faculty member-Miss Craig.
The,committee recently prepared a gen-
eral statement, which enumerates its aims
KD Proper observance of patriotic holi-
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
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,

It is hoped that with the experience
which the members are now gaining, the
committee may become a powerful force
in the life of the school, that what we have
already accomplished is only a promise of
what may come.

Nearly every high school of Eureka's
size has some sort of museum. 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

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
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!

' POEMS A A
The stars move in their mighty orbs and
Viewing the birth of ages moving-on,
Beholding the freshness, mildness, and
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-
The seasons come and go with certain
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 rushing brook the speeding fiock
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
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
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,
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
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
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!

Song of Youth
Flowers have withered, trees have decayed,
Millions of mortals in graves have been
Millions of wood-folk to Death have drawn
But though they have perished, I ne'er
Tutgank-amen, Victoria, Napoleon,
Great rulers, but now have passed on
With nameless beggars, 'neath the earth
But I cannot, will not ever die.
Heart-sent through the num'rous narrow
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.
Fearless and kean of eye:
Swift as the wind of the sea,
And sure in your drive as the cormorant's
From the cliffs by the calm Western
Light wings as the sea birds lot,
Yet talons of steel have thee,
And sure in their clasp as the eagle's fierce
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
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.

You ilutter by
On gauzy wing,
You pretty thing!
Right glad are we
This day to see
A thing so fair
Ride through the air.
Ah! now you quit
To rest a bit
Here on the grass,
Before you pass
To yonder bower,
To test each flower,
And honey sip
From each sweet lip.
Now, off you fly-
T0 A DANDELION
Where's your cup of gold?
Where's the ejacket green and fine
That you wore of old?
Then you nodded to the birds
In your happy way,
And you danced to every tune
That the breeze did play.
Time goes creeping ong
And your wig is snowy white-
Golden locks are gone.
But you've had a merry time
Since your days began,
And even now you are so cheery,
As a gay old man.
' Xie is.
If I can write about a hero,
It will keep away a zero
From her book .
For she said that I must write
A lyric overnight.
Just the very name of lyrics
Will drive me to hysterics
She would make of me a poet-
If I can't write-Oh! I know
I shall swoon!
I'll await an inspiration
Then without an invitation
I shall write
Ditties that shall send my name .
Up the dizzy heights to fame
Out of sight. Melvina Cochran.
TO THE ANTELOPE
Oh, Antelope we love you so,
On mornings when there's rain or snow,
Because we know you will not tip
And give us all our morning dip. '
On your smaller sisters we're not so keen
Because they're filled with dangerous gas-
And they gallop and trollop across the bay
Just like the famous "One Hoss Shay."
I know you think this poem is queer,
Because it's not to a forest deer, '
But from my heart this rhythm flows,
From whence the sense comes, no one
knows. Freda Ray.

Blessings on thee, high school boy-
High school is so full of joy-
With your history, hard to get,
And your English, much worse yet,
With your Physics, harder still,
And your lab. book, hard to fill,
With your math, that awful stuff,
Where there is no chance to bluff,
From my heart I wish you joy,
I was once a high school boy.

And your manner free from fear,

THE SONG OF THE BROOK
The brook is mute?
'Tis false, I do declare,
For often when alone
I hear her murmured air.
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.
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.
Break, break, break!
On thy cold gray stones, O Sea,
But you could break for forty years
And not be as broke as me.

An angel smiles within my dreams,
An angel sent from Heaven above,
And lo! 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
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!
How often when I've heard a gentle strain,
That caused my thoughts- to dwell on
Has it throughout the day hummed in my
But when I thought to whistle or to sing,
It slipped away and mixed with other
But still beneath, it dwell a separate
Like music, thoughts of friendships we have
With ones who now from daily things are
Keep running 'neath the flow of other
Oft blazing bright, but always smold-
The daily cares of life may often dim,
But mem'ries of old friends will ne'er be

"Get to work, you lazy thing,"
Said the teacher like a king,
"For you know that I will see
You before the committee.
Merits none, demerits more,
They will meet you at the door.
Many more you cannot stand,
For merits come not hand in hand."
'.'Yes, sir", said the boy so sad,
"I will not again be bad."
Blessing on thee, Harold Prior,
You would make a good town crier,
With thy voice that charms us all,

With thy witty speeches gay,

With a wish to do or dieg

With thy bobbed hair, marcelled fine,
And thy long skirts all in line,
With thy red cheeks, redder still,
All rouged to catch the eyes of Bill,
With a glad smile on thy face,
For all the boys about the place,
I know your head is all awhirl,
For I was once a high school girl.
The Freshmen saw a patch of green,
They thought it was the Senior Class,
But when they closer to it drew,
They found it was a looking glass.

"TOLD lN A PARAGRAPHH
"Amy Lowell's poems are not musical
exercises, they are songs of feeling and
convicion, of the association with nature
and of experience." 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-
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 volume read, no music heard, but
Bears fruit in deeper comprehension."

THE BEAUTY OF OUR MOUNTAINS
Ten o'clock. 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.

owl wailedg another answered. The white
warm silence fell again. With the cold

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-

- THE SPECTRE SUITOR
In that portion of the city of Phila-
'delphia which was once its most fashion-
able residence district, but is now filthy
and ill-kept, stands a fine old colonial
house in the midst of the surrounding
slums. 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

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-
"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

moment of silence followed and then-
the sound of a kiss.
"After these incidents I shut my eyes
and tried to force myself to sleep, but
before I even found a comfortable posi-

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

that old colonial house. But those who are

' 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

STEPS IN .RECOGNITION OF
In order to understand more clearly the
reasons for non-recognition of Mexico at
the present time, some of the -past history
will be delved into. There are several im-
portant events of the past which make it
hard to establish recognition at the pres-
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
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
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-
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

Niagara Falls, Canada, to urge Huerta
to resign. 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-
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
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
General Obregon rose to power with rad-
icals and with radicals has been his work.

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-
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

"Conservation of the Forests by the Fed-
eral Government," were prepared in the

important part of the preparation of these

not been able to include the bibliographies,
we wish the reader to bear in mind that
the essays were intended to develop the

ther than to serve as exercises in composi-

has planned that Mexican revenues
amount to 525,000,000 be set aside an-
nually for service of the debt.
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
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.

President Obregon recently announced
that he would never sign a ,treaty of amity

such a thing, and furthermore, the Presi-

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

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
N X x
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: -
Trading is being exchanged between
the cities of Houston, St. Louis, New Or-

States, and Laredo, Cordoba, Durango,
Mexico City, Orizaba, Aguascalientes,

and Torreon of Mexico.

remains to be seen, what course will be

as proclaimed by prominent Mexican news-
papers. The death of President Harding

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
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
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.

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
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
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

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
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
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-
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

wrought, and the children are easiest?
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
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. Careless smokers, those set by
loggfirrg' and lumber companies, and incen-
diary fires or those set on purpose by mali-
cious and criminal persons also cause a
great deal of destruction. A
Fire prevention is very simple in the
case of those who are careless, if they are
willing to do their part by being more care-
ful where they throw their matches and
build their campfires.

quite recently stirred. up s great deal cf ins-
terest thru out the United States, The for-
ests saemed to be threatened by entire anni-
hilationt It was not only the most serious
threat of devastation but also the most dra-
matic, in the history of the forests,
Many of these silent sentinek have stood
their lonely watch, wer the earth for not
only thousands of years but millions. 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.

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-

not least, it helps to create an atmosphere
of culture in the school and community.

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
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.
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. ,
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.

Tin November, an Dr-ation Contest was
given by the Juniors and Seniors. Follow-
ing are the representatives from each of
.Loganell Beamer of the QB class
Ansil Rankin of the 4A class
Carve! Brown of the 3B class
Jenny Peterson of the 3A class
Loganell Beamer was chosen by the
judges. These contests should be greatly
encouraged in the schools.
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
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.

This year, as usual, a great deal of in-
terest was taken in football and when prac-
tice was started a large turnout was the
result. 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
On October 6, Eureka won from For-

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

The girls' track team was stronger this
year than during the previous season when
they won the National Telegraphic Meet.
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
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-
Claire Robertson, first in 60 yard hur-
dles. Time 8 4-5 seconds. New world's

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
Eureka by her fine' work behind the bat
and her timely homer: in the Arcata game.

BOYS, baseball practice started as soon
after the basketball season was over as
the weather would permit. 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-
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.
