GEORGE C. JENSEN
Author of the Eureka Plan
DUCATION is not the masteru
of subjects, but the masteru of
self. Education is not the acquirf
ing of knowledge that moneq might
be gathered, but the awakening of
the internal fires so that life might
be spent with pleasure and in service.
idealistic perceptions are the onlu
lasting human qualities. One's char-
cater is the sumtotal of ones ideals.
Jl man who does not have high
ideals is an ignorant man no matter
how manq schools he has attended
or how much learning he has

EUREKA HIGH SCHOOL
The History Of The Eureka High School
In school we study the histories of the many countries that go
to make up this world. Some of us study Early European, Modern,
and American History. Let us steal a few minutes of time and go
back to the first days of the Eureka High School. What could be
more interesting than to review the history of Alma Matar?
Thirty years have now elapsed since E. H. S. was established.
Several elections voted down a bill for a high school but on August
26,1895 the bill was past at last. The school was opened on the
twentieth of January 1896 with seven pupils and three teachers:-
L. K. Grimm, P. S. Inskip, and W. M. McKay. The first building
was the old Winship, then called the "E and Eleventh Street
One of the first school activities given by the freshmen was a
vaudeville performance at the Ingomar Theater. Realizing that a
school paper was necessary, they bought a printing outfit with
the proceeds. A semi-monthly paper called the "Eureka High
School Reporter" was issued. The printing of this paper proved
to be too much work so the machine was sold and the paper was
printed by a commercial printing house. A few years later it was
again taken into the hands of the students and the name was
changed to the "Pacific" It was given this name for two reasons,
first, because the name stood for a desire for new things, and
secondly on account of the proximity to that body of water. The
paper ceased to be published until 1901 when it appeared in a
magazine form monthly. Two years later found the magazine de-
veloped into a book containing the special Commencement Issue
and known as the "Sequoia," This name has lived to this day.
The first year of school was completed in less than six
months. During the vacation months a chemical and physical
laboratory was fitted up in the tower room. At first because of
the lack of chemicals very few experiments were performed, but
in 1897 a large purchase of pure chemicals was made.
No athletic teams were formed until fall when a football
team came into existence. A series of games was played with the
various schools in the county. Although they played their hard-
est they were beaten in almost every game. The team put up a
good fight in the games against the Eureka Business College.
In February 1897 the girls met to organize a Drill Corps.
Great opposition arose among the mothers as to the place of
practice and the costumes. It was finally decided that the Drill
Corps could be organized on two conditions. The practicing must
be done in the basement and the skirts must be no shorter than
thirteen inches from the ground.
In March 1897 the E. H. S. Debating Society was formed.
The club met every week and read and discussed plays with their
advisors, Miss Curtis and Miss Allen. Girls were not allowed to
enter until many years later. Debates were held in the country,
in which Eureka made quite a showing. Luxuries, capital punish-
ment, foreign immigration and other subjects were talked upon.
ln later years interest was lost on account of the growing
feeling among the students that any time unoccupied by the regu-
lar rountine should be devoted to exercising or at least to some-
thing which was free from study. A debating team was sent to
Oakland one year.
In October 1898 a Town Tennis Club was in the process of
forming. A court was arranged at Twelvth and G Streets.
A library was needed very badly by the students but the
Board of Education would not purchase books for it. The students
had Professor Ardly of the University of California give a series
of lectures. The proceeds were used to add books to the few diction-
aries and grammar books.
The first Student Body president was Joseph Tracy. At first
the Seniors put out the Sequoia but in 1904 the Student Body Staff
took the responsibility and the book come out better than it had
before. For the first time portraits of the Seniors appeared.
The students were preparing to organize a track team in
1900. Two years later a Field Day was held. No athletic event was
more interesting to the people at large than Track. It was of long
standing and enjoyed by all even though they did not understand
it. It gave a variety of events and an opportunity for a large num-
ber of participants and was thought to be free from danger.
The first principal of the Eureka High School was G. M.
Warren with W. M. McKay as vice-principal.
The girls, Phi Epsilon Sorority was started. Pins standing
for loyalty and friendship were worn by the members. The
Gamma Chapter of the Phi Epsilon Sorority was also started.
Meetings were held every two weeks at the homes of the different
members. Some of the other Sororities and Fraternities were the
Alpha Sigma, Iota Sigma Beta, Delta Sigma Nu and the Alpha
The first colors of E. H. S. were cardinal and green. These
were chosen by Arthur Way, our present mayor. These colors
are still used. '
Basketball was introduced in 1906 for the first time. Two
teams composed of girls, one representing the Alpha Sigma Soror-
ity and the other the Athletic Girls, Society played several inter-
esting match games and closed their season with honors. A tennis
team was organized and a court selected when Arcata challenged
E. H. S. Several asphalt tennis courts were then constructed.
The Eureka football and baseball teams were champions in
this year. Delegates from the four schools CFortuna, Ferndale,
Arcata,and Eurekaj were elected to a convention in Eureka for
the purpose of framing an athletic constitution. The three smaller
schools, regarding Eureka as their most formidable opponent
voted us down on every provision which We might desire. We re-
jected this and did not join the League until the following year.
We then began to arrange inter-class meets, resulting in a track-
meet at South Park October 6.
A French Club, the High School Quartette and the Jacobin
Club was organized in 1908. The J acobin Club was the reorganiz-
ed debating Society. With the entrance into the High School Ath-
letic League came the arousal of such ardent spirit among the
students that in this year the teachers proposed holding rallies.
Joe Moore was elected yell leader.
In the following year the Parliamentary Law Class was or-
ganized for the purpose of parliamentary practice, but was soon
recognized as a legislative body. The Erosophia Club, which
means "seekers of Wisdom," was organized in '10. This literary
club proved to be an active and beneficial organization of the
school. A spirit of friendly rivalry was created between the Jacob-
in Club and Erosophia.
Under the management of the Student Body, the basketball
court was excavated. Some boys supplied teams and hauled off
the dirt, while the rest of the boys and some of the teachers dug
it out. A dinner was served to the industrious workers by the girls
in the chemical laboratory. p D 9 , p
The tennis court was also fitted up. This year delegates were
sent to the Interscholastic Meet at Berkeley and made a very
By 1911 the High School was in quite poor condition. The
exterior was unpleasing and the interior was no more inviting.
The classes were overcrowded, and some, the cooking, sewing, and
woodwork departments, were in the Brown and Grant Schools.
Much agitation was brought about for a Polytechnic High School.
It was decided on March 18, 1911, that the building would have
to be used for some years more.
Each class at the Eureka High School was organized in the
later part of September 1911, for the purpose of encouraging
debating and public speaking. These societies met every other
Friday for two periods. The classes were also organized, so that
they could give dances, candy sales, choose class colors, pins, and
iiowers, and all business pertaining to classes alone. The classes
selected the following names, Seniors-Athaneum, Juniors-Adel-
phian, Sophomores-Ecclisia, and Freshmen-Philomathea.
An agriculture Club was organized. Talks and work on agri-
culture were given by an expert from the University of California
and aroused much interest among the students.
The final election of June 3, 1913 decided that one hundred
and fifty thousand dollars was to be spent for a real, modern, high
school. Work was immediately started on the new building. The
result was the present Eureka High School, the most beautiful
high school in northern California.
An orchestra was started in 1917 under the leadership of
Mr. Williams. This was the first orchestra the school ever possess-
ed. It was again organized in 1918 by Mr. Flowers.
The 1918 number of the Sequoia was called the American
number. The Eureka Hi was then called Camp Eureka. The stud-
ent body meetings were then changed by Mr. Neighbor to Monday
mornings instead of after school.
Dr. J. H. Molineux became the new principal in 1919. It was
during this term that the boys voted to become a cadet organiza-
tion, and several months before were equipped with uniforms
During this time the girls were by no means idle. The work of the
students during this year, was greatly handicapped by the influ-
enza epidemic. , , u ,I I . A
We find party organizations in all governments. In 1920
they were found in the class of the E. H .S . There were Rupublic-
ans, Democrats, and Socialists. Each party had its organizations,
oflices, and platforms. A great interest was taken in debating.
This great interest and the ability of the members caused Eureka
High School to win the county championship for 1920. An inter-
est was not only taken in debating but also in athletics. This spirit
was largely responsible to the introduction of the 120 pound class
into sports. Eureka High School ran off with first place in track,
football, and tennis, and tied for first place in boys' and girls'
In 1921 the Student Body had the good luck of being placed
under the principalship of George C. Jensen, who has done a great
deal for the students and the school, and is the author of the
famous Eureka Plan. L
The girls' track team showed its skill in athletics by winning
first place in the National Telegraphic meet held May 19, '23.
World records were broken in the javelin throw and the 100Fyard
dash by Stella Molash and Elta Cartwright, respectively. The
honor of winning was held the two following years.
The Sequoia of 1924 was a very noticeable book. Articles on
the Science, Mathematics, Language, and History Departments
were made by the students. Our Library, Commercial Depart-
ment, Printing Department, Industrial, Art, Part Time and
Night School were likewise not forgotten.
The Americanization Committee that was organized the pre-
ceeding year, became very prominent. Programs were given by
them at the assemblies held in commemoration of America's great
men. The Flag Raising Program was very spectacular.
We might call last year's Sequoia the club number. In it ap-
peared the names and photos of the members of the numerous
clubs that were formed. Some of these were the Scoophounds, Mor-
tar and Pestle, Social Civics, Spanish, Civics, Ex Why, B. K. C.
S. O .S. Hiking, D. X. Radio, Chemicher Verein. Big "E," and
Glee Clubs. Probably the reason for the rapid springing up of
these clubs was due to the encouragement of the faculty. The or-
ganization movement was a big step forward.
The Glee Club showed its ability when it presented a Chinese
Operetta, "The Feast of the Little Lanterns."
On March 7, 1924 a parade was held by the schools of Eureka.
The purpose of this parade was to gain the interest of the citizens
of Eureka in the new Junior High School. Each class chose colors
and prensented some stunt for the parade. Some very original
ideas were expressed. The prize stunt was won by the 2B class of
that time. This parade did a good deal in making the dream of a
Junior High School ccme true.
If you have a few more spare minutes, take a glimpse at the
Albee Stadium. We owe a great deal to George Albee, our superin-
tendent of Eureka School, for this stadium, that has been named
for him. This will be the largest stadium in northern California.
So reads the history of our school, from three teachers, seven
pupils, and a small building, to over three dozen instructors, eight
hundred students, a Junior High School and a Senior High School.
Through it all has run the bright cord of loyalty, persever-
ance and courage, and we of today owe much to those preceeding
us who have been thus faithful to Alma Matar.
EPPLE YGRA MS
Idle rumor moves fast.
Notice the middle letter in WIN.
Fiction makes friction-be truthful.
To carve out a place for yourself-dig in.
To de-serve promotion we must serve.
Do it because you can, not because you must.
It is not enough to see through obstacles-go through them.
Keepyour head and everything else you own will be safe.
That employe who does his best seldom gets the worst of it.
Big successes seldom come from little efforts-therefore strive.
Use common sense to increase your supply of dollars and cents.
One way to be a big gun in any field is never to be fired.
He who runs from work is seldom pursued by increased salary.

No, Augustus, that doesn't mean the hard driven associate
editors are finally avenging themselves on us and we're too hard
pressed to spell "Mercy" correctly. It's one of those words used
by Frenchies so ignorant that they can't speak English, and it
means "thanks," which we are sending to the following:
A living denial to the rumor that a staff is inconsiderate,
unfaithful, stubborn, slow and inaccurate.
If there ever has been a staff that has done what it was told
to do, when and how it was told to do it, if there has been a staff
that has been kindly considerate of its editor's faults and idio-
syncraciesg if there ever has been a staff that has been faithful
all of the time, industrious most of the time, and dependable
in crises, that staff has been you, the associate editors of the 1926
Ye editor has surely had a jolly year watching you work.
Only remember the slave driver with a little tolerance.
To the Faculty:
The fine art work in this Sequoia should be credited to Miss
Borg, head of the art department, and her talented students. Any
success this Sequoia may have is due a great deal to her obliging
All Sequoia copy was typed under the direction of Miss Tilley
of the commercial department. This was of especial help to the
linotype operators, and was very much appreciated.
Some splendid mechanical drawing was done under the su-
pervision of Mr. Rigast, and did much to improve the appearance
of this annual.
Principal Jensen, Mrs. Nason, and Mr. Bragg, have done
much for the Sequoia as advisors. Mr. Bragg is the head of the
printing department, and this annual was a printing project by
the students under his direction.
Other faculty members have aided the staff materially,
either With suggestions or as subscription agents. We thank them
To the Student Body:
Members of the Student Body have aided the Sequoia by
their art or literary contributions, or as subscription agents.
Their help was appreciated. We thank you!
In previous issues of the Sequoia arrangements were con-
siderately made for the autograph of your friend, including nick-
name, address, hobby, ambition, course in high school, views on
the World Court, preference as to two or three minute eggs, and
political, screen, stage, athletic and literary favorites. Also is the
equivalent for the square of four plus three in Greek minus Latin
and Arabic characters?
How about writing something worth While this year? A
note to ponder over when We are hoary haired and too feeble to
go airplane riding, or in just the honest old John Henry.
Do think it over.

The music department, under the direction of Miss Helen
Chakurian, has done some very Hue Work this year. There is
a good, flourishing Girls' Glee Club and the Boys' Glee is also
doing excellent Work, having, among other things, produced a
clever one act operetta.
The new classes in the music department are the ones of
which we have the greatest cause to be proud, because they re-
quire a greater initiative and ingenuity on the part of the stud-
ents than do the regular Glee Clubs.
There is a notation class in which the fundamentals of music
are studied. Note writing, scale building, and the elements of
music form, all play an important part in the Work of this class.
There is also a class in music appreciation. This course is
offered primarily for the students Who like music, and Wish to
understand it, but Who do not plan to make it their profession.
Last, but far from least, there is the harmony class, in which
there are several members who give promise of being true musi-
cians, and who may some day express their individuality in a
form of music that will last through the ages.
The following is a brief summary of the Work outside of
classwork, which has been accomplished by the Glee Clubs.
In September the Girls' Glee sang for the Parent Teacher's
Association. In Cctober the Girls' Glee sang in costume for an
Americanization program. In November, the Mixed Chorus sang
before the student body. In December the Girls' Glee and the
Boys' Quartet sang at the graduation excercises. In January the

Boys' Glee Club presented the one act operetta, "The Freshman,"
under the supervision of Miss Chakurian and Miss Powell. The
operetta was a greatsuccess. In February the Girls' Glee sang
several numbers for the Girls' League convention at the Eureka
Women's Club house. The entire Girls' Glee and a sextette from
the Girls' Glee club also sang for the student body in February.

Is the silver from out of the sea.
Linger awhile and listen, and hear

Scene is the lobby of a large hotel. Mrs. Peabody is s?tting in
the lobby speaking to different ones who come in. A large loige
convention is being held in the city.
Mrs. Peabody -- Oh yes, my dear, don't you know, I think that
was the most outrageous thing I ever heard of. Why the nerve of
Mrs. Smith getting up and suggesting that everyone bring her
children to the banquet. I suppose she has an idea that that little
brat of a "Buddie" of hers would attract some attention. I despise
that young one. He is always into everything.
CMrs. Smith and little Buddie Smith come in.l
Mrs. Peabody -- Oh, do sit down, Mrs. Smith, and Buddie. you
must come here and sit right on my lap. I just love nice little boys
like you. So Well behaved. Oh, Mrs. Smith, I am so sorry that they
voted down your lovely suggestion of bringing children to the
banquet. I just love to have their bright faces around me--especial-
ly Buddie's. He has such an intelligent look on his face, you know.
fMrs. Smith leaves.J
Mrs. Peabody, to her former companion -- The little brat
Wrinkling up my skirt and smearing sticky candy all over me. He
is positively the stupidest child I ever saw. Oh my, yes, I think
Mrs. Brown looks terribly with her hair cut. Oh dear, here she
comes. Do I look as if I had been talking about her? No? Well,
fMrs- Brown comes in.J
Mrs. Peabody -- Well, if here isn't our little friend, Mamie
Brown! Oh Mamie, your hair looks simply gorgeous. I am so en-
vious. It makes you look at least ten years younger. Oh, must you
leave so soon? Well, Goodbye.
fMrs. Brown leaves.J
Mrs. Peabody -- Did you ever hear such terribe music as they
had this morning! That vocal solo by Mrs. Black was terrible. Do
you know I heard that she is taking vocal lessons. You know
what--I've even heard rumors to the effect that she doesn't pay her
grocery bill every month, and her with that voice of hers spending
poor dear Mr. Black's hard-earned money on vocal lessons! Out-
fMrs. Black comes in.J
Mrs. Peabody -- Oh hello, Lola. Um--how nice you look. What
was the name of that beautiful song you sang so nicely this morn-
ing? Oh yes--how silly of me not to remember it. Oh, by all means,
yes- You must sacrifice everything for your voice. How is dear
little Mary? Has she any more teeth? She is such a smart baby.
I'1l just be delighted to keep the little dear. She is such a good baby.
fExit Mrs. Black.J
Mrs. Peabody -- My heavens! Did you ever see such a stupid
baby! Why, when my Jackie was that baby's age, he could talk
and had all of his teeth. I certainly hope that I never have to keep
that young one. '
Well, my dear, I really must go over and see what news Mrs.
Hodges has for me. She said she had something very important to
tell me. Goodbye dear.
Strong in the pride of their glory,
Sentinels of ages they stand,
Guarding their secrets with silence
These magnificent kings of the land.
Locked in the heart of a forest,
The secrets and charms that they hold
Are the unwritten history of ages,
And stories that ne'er will be told.
Ravaged by fire and by flood.
Survivors of ages they are,
Unscared by the storms they have stood.
May their beauty be carried afar.

Always and always, she had hungered for adventure. Her one
burning ambition in life was to die bravely, with her boots on. All
of her twenty-three years had been vainly spent in a gay quest
for that thing for which men with vision have always sought and
for which they have, laughing, lightly died.
In desperation she had cajoled the peace officers into appoint-2
ing her a kind of feminine constable of her county, with a badge,
a revolver, and the power of arrest. But, as yet, no criminal had
felt inclined to use her trim figure as a target in shooting practice,
and felons had studiously refrained from yielding to any sup-
pressed desires to do any jobs in her vicinity and had scrupulously
avoided committing crimes in her vicinity.
She had gone for a walk through the storm down the English
lanes that afternoon, chafing at the bonds of civilization, and
envying the freedom of the seagulls and the wind.
And now she was standing before the crackling fire, her
boots and raincoat still dripping water, her brown bob clinging
rlamply to her shapely head, and her cheeks flushed from the wind.
In a few moments, now, she would be brushing her dark hair
into submission, powdering her patrician nose, donning a dainty
dinner dress and satin slippers, and coming down stairs to the
appetizing evening meal, Cambridge graduate, Tory, independ-
ent, unencumbered with relatives, and a presumably fully civiliz-
ed English wcman. The monotony of it! Her dark green eyes
searched the room rebelliously, as though hunting a Way to escape
from boredom to adventure.
Her musing was interrupted by her housekeeper, who
brought a note which had been sent an hour before by the humble,
adoring, oppulent red-headed earl of the county.
"Dear Andrea," it ran. "You have not informed me yet as to
whether you will honor me with your charming company at the
races tomorrow. This means a great deal to me. If you are not
home when this arrives, I shall send a messenger for your answer
later in the evening."
She read it desperately, knowing that on her reply to it would
depend the answer to a much more important question, threw
it petulantly into the fire.
There was an uncertain knock at the door. She hastened to
open it. A man stumbled in and fell unconscious to the floor.
"Marial" she called, and together the two women managed
to drag the unexpected guest to the couch by the fire. They work-
ed over him quietly and efiiciently for a few moments with cold
water and ammonia.
"Some hot tea," Andrea instructed Maria, and returned her
attention to the man.
He was tall--over six feet of splendid slenderness. His thick
black hair swept back from a bronzed face, bronzed as only an
Englishman's is after half a life time spent in India. Black eye-
brows overshadowed his childish lashed closed eyes, his nose was
ever so slightly whimsically up tilted, and his chin was well model-
ed, but his mouth--it was cruel.
There were signs now of his awakening. He moved slight-
ly, groaned at the pain it cost him, and opened his black eyes
"Hallo!" he murmured linallyg gazing up at the anxious
Andrea with smiling eyes, "I see I'm--here. Must have slipped--
on path .... Old war wound."
He gave a twisted grin. "Was going .... to red-headed earl's
. . . . relieve him . . . . of some . . . . of his silver . . . . Can't now
. . . . I guess." He closed his eyes wearily.
In that moment as Andrea gazed down upon the puzzling
young stranger she suddenly knew with a great rush of emotion,
that she had finally and irrevocably come to the end of that quest
which is the conscious or involuntary search of every normal
The man opened his eyes and continued feebly, "I'm Draconi,
the new member of the gang. Funny . . how I knevv . . right away
you were Clara .The crcwd's description was good . . . I-Iere's your
letterf' He produced it after a little fumbling in his jacket pocket,
moved, whitened,and plunged again into oblivion.
It was on the tip of her tongue to inform him that Clara lived
across the way when the contents of the epistle caught her eye.
"Draconi has brought you your instructions," was scrawled
in black ink on the thin paper, "because you are new to the game
and this is your first venture. You will find us three miles sea-
ward of Clovelly in the Dark Cabin of the cove.
"The coppers are hot on our trail, so be careful. Take
Draconi's car and hurry here immediately. If the Egyptian prin-
cess and the Blonde Lady are able to sell the dope to Ramon:J.'s
father, master of the rum runner "Hehe," you are to take the fifty
grand and get away with it. We are loading the rumrunner now.
It must leave at midnight with the tide. So hurry. The passwords
are, 'The sun shall rise tonight' Burn this. Be careful. Giorgio."
In a flash she understood the whole affair--British dope ven-
ders and smugglers in league with prohibition law breakers of the
United States, wrong working with wrong--adventure!
"Maria !" she called in a tense, low voice, buttoning her rain-
coat, "Look,--this letter!" and as the housekeeper scanned the
note and she herself hurriedly loaded her revolver and filled her
pockets with cartridges, she roughly sketched her daring plan.
"But you aren't -you aren't-?" the plump little servant
"But I am," Andrea replied calmly, just as Draconi opened
his eyes, unnoticed by either of them. She iiashed her badge im-
periously. "Do you think that I was made a keeper of the king's
law in jest? My great adventure lies in the palm of my hand. I
shall capture those bandits single handed-."
"You will, will you?" a stern voice inquired sardonically be-
They wheeled, to find themselves looking down the barrel of
a black, evil appearing little weapon held by Draconi. Mechanic-
ally they raised their hands. "So," he went on coldly and sarcastic-
ally, "this is the way you betray an unsuspecting guest?"
Fixing the astonished Andrea with a level black eye he went
on contemptuously. "And you, supposedly an English gentle-
woman, deceive a poor sick man, read a letter not intended for
you .... what kind of a death do you prefer?" ironically .... , "Shoot-
ing .... or merely hanging?"
"Why, you--you !" the enraged Maria sputtered. And regard-
less of danger, seized a book and knocked the revolver to the iioor,
while Draconi swayed from exertion and fainted.
"Keep him quiet," Andrea remarked conversationallyg "I
must be going," and she dashed out into the storm.
She struggled and groped her way through the crashing rain,
breasting the wind at an angle of forty five degrees. There was a
flash of lightning, and by its illumination she was able to perceive
a low roadster waiting in the road, puffing and spluttering.
She reached it, but recoiled at the sight that met her Hash-
light. Topless as it was, it was quite flooded.
For a moment her thoughts flashed to her own comfortable
motor safe in its garage. Then she remembered the urgency of her
task, saw that the tank had plenty of petrol, and clambered hur-
She turned the machine around so that it was facing the way
to Clovelly, and started out just as the rain began pouring with in-
The machine had been built for speed if not for comfort,
Andrea found as she sped down the road, through the storm.
It was nearly nine o'clock when her machine bumped into the
rocks and gravel that announced the beginning of the beach. She
snapped off the engine and sat back, wondering tensely if she
would ever be able to find the Dark Cabin. Huge boulders inter-
cepted what line of vision she had, but from behind them came the
roar of a hungry sea a few rods distant. Involuntarily, she shiver-
"Be you Clara?" a voice whined suddenly at her elbow. She
turned quickly and saw a dim, impersonal shape which proceed-
ed to Hash a pale gleam of light over her features.
"Why--er," she replied half laughing, "don't I look like her?"
"Then come this way," the voice instructed, while its owner
proceeded to shuffle over the beach.
Andrea stooped swiftly, caught up something from the
bottom of the car, and then followed. In a moment the guide point-
ed out the cabin, it was but the work of a moment to tie him to a
tree with the rope she had found in the car.
"But Clara, this be outrageous!" he cried feebly, as she left
him. But his words were drowned by the rain, and swept away on
Andrea went directly to the silent cabin and searched its
walls methodically until she found a crevice, to which she applied
one bright green eye.
What she saw was astonishing. The smoke blue little room
was quite filled with men of the gorilla type, obviously for the
purpose of loading the "Hebe." One, who seemed to be the leader,
was but an exaggeration of all the rest. Andrea recognized him
instantly as Giorgio.
There was a table which seemed to be the center of general
interest. Two women who appeared to be the Blonde Lady and the
Egyptian Princess, were seated at it. They seemed to be bartering
with a rough looking sea-going man. At last they all smiled and
nodded. The captain produced a bankroll, and the woman, a small,
compact package. At that moment there was an imperious rap-
ping at the door.
"Open l" a voice cried. "It is I--Clara! The sun shall rise to-
Giorgio rushed to the door, unbarred it, and opened it cau-
f'Welcome!" he cried, but the words froze on his lips.
"Raise your hands, please, all of you," the streaming figure
before him said authoritatively.
Andrea entered, leaving the door slightly ajar. For a moment
nothing was heard except the shuffle of many feet as the crowd,
too thunderstruck to utter a syllable, backed into a corner.
"I should think that you would be ashamed, as subjects of the
King of England, to associate with such riff raff from the States,"
she began. "I am going to take the whole crowd to Clovelly and
lock you up ....
There was a gay laugh behind her. Andrea turned slowly, the
revolver dropping from her nerveless fingers.
There behind her stood Draconi, hands in pockets, laughing
at her. On either side of him was a dark, slim girl and the guide.
"My dear little Andrea," he said benignantly, "your friends
surely fooled you, didn't they?"
"My friends?" she echoed mechanically.
t'Why, yes," he explained. "Some of your friends up in Lon-
don heard your craze for adventure and hired this gang and me to
give you an evening's entertainment. You responded to it en-
couragingly, I must say. Swallowed it, hook, line and sinker," and
he burst into laughter again.
"I understand now," Andrea said grimly, "what a fool I have
been! I should like very much to swear."
Then, suddenly, the crowd began to roar. Its mirth rocked
the Dark Cabin. It shrieked, it howled, it doubled up with laugh-
ter, and when Draconi left with Andrea to take her home it was
Draconi helped her into her own machine, the one in which he
had hurtled to the scene of adventure, and jumped in and started
the engine. It was still raining, but more gently, now, and the
Wind had almost gone down.
It was not until they were past Clovelly that he slowed down
the car and began to tell her the whole truth and nothing but the
truth, with interludes of laughter.
When he had finished she said bitterly, "It is true, then--
perfectly true? Somehow I feel from your voice, your amusement,
that it is 3 then I have been fooled as much as this in one evening!
I had a crowd of real lawbreakers within my grasp, and when you
lied to me, let them go. The girl you brought with you was the real
Clara. You have humiliated me deeply. And I can never forgive
either you or my credulity.
"Don't speak to me like that," he begged.
"What does it matter to you?" she demanded.
"Well, you see, I--I love you," he explained humbly. "Your
conduct this evening shows that you would be a fit bride for
"Marry a criminal !" she exploded, as they drew up in front
of her home. "That would be madness !"
"Madness is very sweet sometimes," he replied lightly, help-
ing her out and returning to the car. "I shall take that as a de-
finite refusal then?" he inquired casually.
"Of course," she answered coldly, standing in the rain watch-
ing him adjust the gear.
"You will marry the red headed earlf' he said savagely, "but
you will never forget Draconi," and he was off, taking with him
her ten thousand dollar automobile and unwilling heart, and leav-
ing only a burst of golden laughter to mingle with the mournful,
Andrea went heavily up to the door of her home. Maria rush-
ed out to greet her.
"He escaped l" she cried. A
"It doesn't matter," Andrea said wearily, slowly going into
the living room. "It was only a joke, anyway," she pzevaricated
The earl rose humbly from the depths of an arm chair and
bowed apologetically. "I couldn't wait for your answer, "he ex-
plained, going toward her, "so I came for it in person."
"Oh, that's all right," Andrea replied, glancing at him in-
differently, "I'll--I'1l go with you, I guess."
Then, brokenly and whimsically, "I expect-it will be quite

Thy name breathes the very magic of thy song.
Softly ............ dreamily ............ thy cadence

Slowly at first, serenely, as floats the cool breeze
On the petals of drooping flowers.

Which even before it has voiced itself
Is forced into silence.

As gay and as light as the prancing of elves
In a fairy grove in the star light.

This should be called "Two Masterpieces" one by Monsieur
Smythe and the other, well, we leave it to the intelligence of the
Time-Dusk, of a rather chilly winter evening-say Novem-
Place- Studio of Monsieur Jacques Smythe.
Characters-Sm all boy.
Monsieur Jacques Smythe, otherwise, Mr. John Smith, a
would be musician of able means-which he has inherited,-who
believes that to be a real musician one must possess a foreign
name and also be poverty stricken. -Probably, he has just fin-
ished reading the life of Beethoven- However, his love of bod-
ily comfort is so great that he cannot deny himself beyond a cer-
His hair which is in contrast to the hair of most notable musi-
cians, is a rather sandy yellow. -He has not quite succeeded in
convincing himself that black hair is necessary to success, but we
feel sure that if his coming compositions do not cause a greater
riot in musical circles than those previously submitted, he may
be forced in the interests of art to dye his hair.- It is very shab-
by and almost long. It would be longer if it were not for the fact
that he is almost a new composer. But give him time and it will
be flowing around his shoulders, as well becomes a distinguished
musician. His hair jumps from his face in quite a lion like man-
ner and does not give the Padcrweski effect which is to be desired
after repeated brushings
Except for his long hair he is a typical well-fed, self-satisfied
man of about thirty years.
Setting--The studio is a highly inconsistent room due to the
fact that Monsieur Smythe wished to give it the effect of poverty,
but some comfortable furniture is necessary to secure the highest
grade of work from one's brain. As a result, down right there is
a highly polished baby grand piano and beside it is a beautiful
floor lamp. Up right is a door which serves as a means of all
exits, and entrances, and will serve as a peep-hole on occasion.
Up center there is an immense window which reaches from
the floor to ceiling. It succeeds in giving a cathedral-effect to the
room-merely adding to its grotesqueness. Down left is a fire-
place -but no fire-5 beside it is a dilapidated coal scuttle which
is empty. --That fact will be emphasized later on.-Tongs rest
against the fireplace. In front of it is a big morris chair that
spells elegance and comfort.
At the left side of the window a little toward the center is
a rickety table upon which there are several leather bound books.
In front of the window, to the right, is a spindly-legged chair,
very straight backed but rickety. There are no pictures in the
room, but two beautiful copper candlesticks stand at each end
of the mantle above the fireplace.
The curtain rises upon this room, in which the only light
which falls through the cathedral-like window, is rather gray blue
in color. After a moment Monsieur Smythe enters the room. He
is in full evening dress except for a luxurious dressing gown
which replaces his coat. In his right hand he carries a tin candle
holder. -The kind that is purchased at Woolworth's.- In it
is a tall candle which gives forth a rather feeble and sickly ray of
light. He comes in solemnly, places the candle on the piano and
goes shiveringly toward the fireplace.
He picks up the coal scuttle, glances self-pityingly into it and
then shakes it violently-to convince the audience that it is empty,
for there is nothing wrong with his eyes.- Satisfying himself,
or rather convincing the audence that it is empty, he turns rue-
fully from the fireplace. Please keep in mind the fact that he is
shivering all the while. --Perhaps not violently trembling, but
nevertheless giving the impression of coldness. If the actor has
been recently jilted by his girl, he should be able to do this very
well. However, that is irrelevant.
In a business like manner he turns toward the piano, walks
thoughtfully over to it, puts the piano bench into position with the
greatest precision and after adjusting his tie and affectionately
brushing back a stray lock of hair, seats himself at the piano,
carefully draping the end of his dressing gown over the back of
the bench. It reminds the audience of pictures of rug draped
balconies, when Rome was in the height of her glory, over which
women leaned with roses in their hair.
He turns toward the audience still looking thoughtful.
-This is very important, as he is beginning to compose.- He
commences to nod his head slowly. After a few moments he turns
to the piano and in deepness of thought strikes a tremendous dis-
cord. He "comes to" with a start. -He has not been asleep.-With
great thoughtfullness he studies the keys of the piano and after
much deliberation he strikes the tonic chord in the key of C.
Apparently satisied he turns to the top of the piano to pick
up his manuscript. It is not there. He looks aimlessly under the
piano and even picks up thc bench upon which he has been sitting.
1-Since there would be too few actions-and this is pantomime
-if we hid it under the bench, we have cleverly concealed it else-
where,-but he will have to look for it.
His face contracts in an angry frown. Keeping his face thus
he glances around the room. He goes to the table, throws every
book from the table to the floor and after making as much noise
as possible--this is to keep the audience awake at the first of the
play-he is convinced that his manuscript is not there. Facing the
audience he runs his lingers through his gaunet mane, -that
means his "hair" for did we not say that it was quite lion-like?-
and looks perplexedly around the room.
He strides angrily to the fireplace into which he gazes intent-
ly, -please note that he is beginning to lose his temper-the actor
might not have the same intelligence as the author-we sincerely
Grabbing the pokers he pushes importantly around in the
empty fireplace. Unsatisfied that the manuscript is not there,
he attempts to look up the chimney, twisting his body in the most
grotesque fashion. He finally comes to earth, with nothing for his
pains but a smutty nose.
At this point we become aware of a little boy who is peeping
curiously in at the door and watching with interest all that is
taking place. -Please do not forget the little boy-as we are
liable to. Our attention is drawn back to Monsieur Smythe who
is still looking angry. It is very important for the actor not to
see any friend in the audience and smile-it would spoil the
climax toward which we are working, but may never arrive.
He throws the poker furiously to the fioor, picks up the coal
scuttle, peers threateningly inside and then throws it also to the
fioor. -This is not to show manly strength, it is merely a means
of keeping the audience awake.-At this point the little boy is
about to close the door in fright, but on second thought he returns
to his watch.
Monsieur Smythe turns then to the Morris chair, looks under,
around and even removes the cushion from the seat to satisfy him-
self that the missingarticle is not there. He goes balefully down
center. -If the meaning of baleful is doubtful to the reader let
him look it up, it is well to develop the dictionary habit, one that
the author has only too obviously neglected. He looks first to his
right-toward the fireplace then to the left, and when he does so
a thoughtful expression replaces his angry frown. His face is
then illumined with a bright idea,--aided, perhaps, by the side-
lights- and walking over to the piano bench, he lifts the lid, takes
out his manuscript and pencil and then seats himself again before
He studies the piano keys intently as he has forgotten the
chord. For a while he searches dimlessly for the lost chord. Again
an inspiration! With great precision he repeats the tonic chord
in the key of C. With a sigh of satisfaction he eagerly grabs his
manuscript, and his pencil is just poised above the sheet of paper
when the door is suddenly thrown open, allowing the small boy to
be catapulted into the room.
A Woman of amazing height stalks into the room. She walks
with such an air of possession that we are convinced that she
is the proverbial land-lady who always takes the place of the
grand-mother in fiction, for a novel, play or pantomime is incom-
plete without one or the other-therefore this will be complete-
when it is finished.
The land-lady's hair is in a tight knot on the top of her head
and she is wearing a freshly laundered linen dress. As she stalks
into the room she is fairly "licking her chops," -you are wrong,
she has not come to collect the rent-it is already paid-for in her
hand she carries a telegram for Monsieur Smythe, and you may
well believe that she has a human feeling for him in her heart and
is very solicitous as to the bad news he has received-although it
may be good. She will know before she goes-because to get
rid of her he will probably in desperation hand her the telegram.
Monsieur perceives who his caller is, throws down his manuscript
with a mixture of disgust and resignation and turns to her with a
none too gracious air. She hands him the telegram smiling vic-
iously the while. Perhaps, the smile is not vicious but only a trick
which is made by the shadows from the candle, but land-lady's
are supposed to be vicious, so we will say that this is the impres-
sion we receive.
Disregarding his visitor rudely, he tears open the telegram,
glances through it, crushes it in his hand and throws it at the fire-
place. It does not land there for he has not played baseball for
fifteen years, however that is not on the subject. He turns and
faces down center where the woman is standing. He fixes her
with a stony eye and her look of-did I say friendly?-interest
vanishes, and with terror she starts from the room just as he
Wheels on his stool and strikes, thunderingly, the first three cords
of Rachmaninoflvs Prelude in C Sharp Minor.
Upon hearing the door slam, he stops, laughs gleefully-like
an ordinary man-and shakes his fist at the door. In the mean-
time the small boy, unnoticed, has managed to hide behind the
piano with something in a sack.
Again with determination Jacques turns to the piano and
strikes the same tonic chord of C. He takes up his manuscript,
glances half-fearfully toward the door, and with a sigh of satis-
faction begins to write. The little boy peers around the piano,
his eyes wide with wonder. He remains watching with rapt at-
tention. He will remain watching until we are able to turn our
minds to him again. Monsieur Smythe strikes a chord from time
to time- In the intervals he is busily scratching at his manuscript.
Everything is going well-the scene is one of busy content-
ment. Suddenly we realize that something is wrong! A very
unpleasant expression comes upon his face--and we see him bus-
ily fingering the keys, he is groping for semething. No, he rl. ijt
lose his eye-glasses. He settles back on the piano bench and re-
gards the keys intentlyg it is evident that he cannot End exactly
the right chord. He is never satisfied with any less.
Pushing the bench back wth an air of exasperation he strides
back and forth at the front of the stage. At first he is only mut-
tering to himself and clenching and reclenching his hands. In a
few moments his gesture becomes violent and he begins movng
his hands in the air. We easily pefceive that he is in a rage.
Meanwhile the boy opens the sack and proudly exhibits a
large black cat, holding him up by the tail. This he throws into
The instrument begins to emit sounds of a unique and fever-
ish nature. The musician turns, throws up his hands in a gesture
of admiration, grabs his manuscript, his whole face transiigured
by a new light, and is busily writing as

Dramatics is essential in the high schools because it is
through it that students gain training which they never receive
elsewhere. They learn to appreciate the very best of literature.
They learn responsibility and respect for the necessary rehearsals,
something they might have formerly considered an admirable
opportunity for having a good time. Cooperation and willingness
also enter into the realm of drama.
Dramatics teaches the control and modulation of the voice.
That means which offers the most complete schooling of the emo-
tions as well as the most coniplete self-expression is found in the
high school play.
The important essentials of a good actor or act :ess besides
imagination and ability, are industry, patience and loyalty. All
of these are necessary, but if the person possesses only a few, the
rest may be acquired through hard work. Dramatics should be
one of the most important of the activities of the school.
Dramatics has quite an important place in our high school
at present. It is the duty of the Drama Department to give plays
worth while at frequent intervals, and to keep the standard of
I think every student should have some drama, even though
it may be only a little. Dramatics has opened a new out-look for
me, given me things which I am sure I could not have obtained
through the study of any one subject. It has given me self-
assurance, a thing I never possessed before, it has given me
poise, it has given mc a better command of language, and it has
broadened my interest in subjects in general. Since entering
drama I have become more interested in better programs and bet-
In a play one learns to understand other people, and to watch
and learn by both their mistakes and their good work. It is a test
to see what kind of material you are made of because you are
taken into a great many situations which you would not have
Altogether, dramatics is as enjoyable as it is instructive.

PLA YS OF THE SEASON
The dramatics department of the Eureka High School has
done some excellent work this year under the able direction of
Miss Ruby Powell.
The dramatics season opened November 13, when a three act
play, "Adam and Eve," was presented. Many Weeks of practice
and a great deal of hard work were spent on producing this play,
but the results more than repaid the workers, as it was a great
success. The cast of characters was as follows:

This department is edited by myself. These articles are to be
read strictly by students. Please do not let the teachers know that
I have found out some of their past history and some of their ex-
periences, for it might be difficult for me to escape from the
Some of the teachers in this school have such a shady past
that they absolutely refuse to relate the least bit of it. I believe
that they are afraid we might follow their example, and they
would be unable to correct us. We know that the teachers weren't
always perfect even if they pretend to be now. I'll just bet any-
thing Mr. James M. Bragg, Mr. Durston, and Mr.George Morgan
never went past an apple orchard, when the apples were ripe with-
out helping themselves. Now, did they? I know that Miss Agnes
Borg and Miss Ruby Powell never kept their dresses clean as nice
little girls should. Miss McGeorge teaches English now, but when
she was a girl she couldn't memorize a line of poetry. And Mr.
Doren's greatest delight was to put the ends of blonde pigtails in
the ink bottles. I am very sorry to say that this mischief has come
to an end, unless We wear rats. Now, Miss Emily Poindexter
would not go to college and when her folks sent her, she got off the
train. After her parents located her and scolded her, she was sent
back to college again. Being very angry, she was determined to
get all ones and show them what she could do. Well, she did, and
now we have to suffer with Spanish.
It is funny that we don't see Miss Margaret Mathews riding
to school on a bicycle. Miss Mathews had some wonderful mid-
night rides on bicycles while attending the Stanford University.
Her name appeared in the scandal column of the "Daily Palo
Alto" as one of the midnight bicycle rider enthu siasts.
If you don't know what a mischief Miss Cecile Clark is, then
just listen to this episode. During last Christmas vacation a young
man college student was staying with the Clarkes. Now, this stud-
ent had a friend and when he went to talk to her Miss Clarke filled
the pockets of his good suit, which was in the suit case full of rice.
She spied his umbrella and filled it with rice and closed it. When
the young man was enroute to the tarin it started to rain and he
put up his umbrella. Of course this gave the pedestrians the idea
that it was a bride and bridegroom shower. But that wasn't all.
When he got home and put his suit on, he was unaware of another
joke. He went in the kitchen to see his mother and while there he
pulled out his handkerchief which shed a shower of rice. His
mother was a frightened woman, so Miss Clarke says. If Miss
Clarke is as clever at scheming mischief as she is teaching history,
we will give her credit for this.
Can you imagine Miss Renshaw caught in the Tules? Well,
this is what happened. She went in search of blackbirds' nsts near
Woodland in a spring wagon drawn by horses. As they went along
the Water got deeper and deeper until it was six inches deep. The
wagon broke in the middle and down Went Miss Renshaw. She
tucked up her wet skirts, eyed the dismantled wagon with disgust,
and started Walking homeward. After walking one and one-half
miles from the scene of disaster they obtained a buggy to go home
in. I wonder if Miss Renshaw said, "Thanks for the buggy ride. I
had a wonderful time?"
When Mr. Morgan was a little "kid" he lived in Nevada
where much mining was carrid on. He and a bunch of his pals de-
cided to blow a piece of a mountain enarby' "Little George A.
Morgan" and the rest of the "gang" got some explosives and long
fuses. I don't know Where they got them but I will leave this to
your imagination. They set oif the blast and the concussion of the
air broke many of the windows in the town and the side of the
mountain slid off. We didn't know they made such naughty boys
in those days, Mr. Morgan.
In 1915, Miss Margarette Bedell went for a pleasure trip to
Galveston, Texas. They went to an island nearby to stay awhile
and it rained for three days after their arrival. They tried to leave
the island but decided not to when the conductor of an interurban
was heard to state that the overloading cars might keep them in
the causeway. They returned to the hotel on the island and that
night the water rose four feet in the lobby. The lights went out and
a fire started in the kitchen. The wind was blowing a 90 mile gale.
After a great fight the fire was extinguished. The water was still
rising, and Miss Bedell was more frightened than ever. The din-
ing room resembled a morgue, and after five days suspense Miss
Bedell departed by boat never to return again- I think we would
rather stay on dry land in California, Miss Bedell.
I will now relate Miss Sutton's experience through the
"Silver King Mine." This is the largest mine in the world. It is
thirteen hunderd feet underground. Miss Sutton and friends
started in an old delivery wagon through rough roads to the top
of the hill. When they arrived at the top, there was a group of
oflices, buildings, and mills. The first thing they did was to eat
at the "mess house" as guests of the mine oflicials. After dinner
they went to the elevators where each was given a rain coat, cap
and hat and assigned a place in the "cage" The desent was made
in crude elevators boarded up four feet. The walls around were
solid masses of dirt. Every hundred feet they passed a lantern
and could hear the voices of miners busy at work- After descend-
ing thirteen hundred feet they stopped with a bang and climbed
out of the "cage"into cars four by five feet. The train was a tiny
electric motor car. These cars traveled thirty-five miles an hour.
Sometimes water fell on them like a great rain storm, and some-
times they Were told to duck, as a sharp ledge struck below the
general level. After riding five hundred miles they got out of the
cars and took a pick and tried to dislodge the silver. They soon
tired of it because the picks were heavy. After they had a few
precious bits they were ready to return to the outside world. We
don't blame Miss Sutton for being a librarian. Now she doesn't
need to dig so deep to find the silver.
In January, 1917, Miss Elene Hanson was returning to Cal-
ifornia from a hurried call to Winnipeg. There were snow storms
for three days and no transcontinental trains. Their train was the
first to make the attempt to go on. At Wyoming they ran into a
snow bank and were held there for eighty-four hours. There was
a town nearby of about twenty-seven homes where the trains
going east and west were being held. Meanwhile the food, water
and coal were giving out. The supplies gave out on one train and
the people were transferred to automobiles and then brought to
Miss Hanson's train. They were packed in like sardines and plac-
ed on rations of two meals a day. There was no water and every
one kept clean by means of cold cream. They bought the town out
of supplies- Miss Hanson's car consisted of a big good-naturecl
family including a priest, a rabbi, insurance men coming back
from a Convention in Cincinatti 5 a scenario writer, a film star, a
rodeo hero eloping with a millionaire's daughter, a retired Bapt-
ist minister and his patient wife. Their pastime consisted of card
playing. The only excitement they had in this lonely, unpleasant
country was the news that the "diplomatic relations with Ger-
many were broken. This statement was shouted from coach to
coach by a ruddy faced German. After the abatement of the wind
and through incessant digging at the packed snow bank, the three
mountain engines finally made headway. Berkeley! A Paradise!
We agree with you, Miss Hanson.
When Mr. F. Frye was a young man of twenty, he was ro-
mantic and shy. His neighbors had a pretty daughter. For a long
time he admired her from afar. She had beautiful locks and lovely
eyes. Mr. Frye blushed every time he said, "Hello" to her. Finally
he got courage to ask her if he might come to see her. She replied
amid a great blushing that he could, if he wanted to. So one Sun-
day night Mr- Frye arrayed himself in his best suit, combed his
hair a certain way and was very careful about the way he put his
hat on so as not to muss his well-combed hair. He started out on
foot with a great deal of courage but the nearer he got to her house
the slower he walked. When he reached the house, he was afraid to
knock. At last he did, and she appeared and graciously asked him
to enter. Timidly, he walked in and beheld six other boys on the
same errand as he was. After this he never returned. His courage
concerning girls was gone. Well, he is married now, as there were
other fish in the sea. '
Miss Ruth Turner and thirteen friends and a chaperone took
a trip across San Francisco Bay in a whale boat. They rowed from
Alameda to Goat Island to attend a water sport contest. They
arrived all right, rather tired but peppy. Dinner was served in
camp and each contributed a stunt. They hiked around Goat
Island. Then a contest and a dance were held. When they departed
for Alameda the Goat Island Band played "Aloha-"
When they had ridden half way across the bay they began to
tire, and a storm arose. The bay was rough, the boat tossed and the
waves came into the boat. The boat began to fill- Two girls started
bailing the water out by use of white sailor hats. One girl: fainted,
another screamed and those who couldn't swim were crying. The
whale boat got between two Ferry boats, this created larger
swells and caused a temporary panic. People rushed to the sides
of the Ferry boats upon seeing them. The girls waved and yelled
frantically at passing boats. The people started to wave at them
thinking the girls were having a good time. The girls became
hysterical and the boat was filling faster than it could be bailed
out. Eight girls continued to row. A middy blouse was put on the
end of an oar as a distress signal. Two sailors, on a visiting
destroyer, sighted them while viewing the bay with field glasses.
A launch was immediately sent from the destroyer. They rescued
them and put them on board a Hospital ship to be fed and dried,
and then they were sent back to Alameda in a launch.
Of course, before saying, "the end" I must tell you about Miss
Alice Lambert. Miss Lambert and three of her girl friends were
called the "Invincible Four" because they went every place re-
gardless of whether they had the money to go or not. They always
had some scheme up their sleeve in ordr to get by. One time they
wanted to go to a football game and they had no money to pay
their way. Miss A. Lambert told one girl to ring up her father to
get a car or wagon to take them in. Only a cow wagon or truck was
Miss Lambert abruptly left her class with a packed suitcase
of clothes and caught the train. When she got to her friend's home
they washed the old car truck, put cleats, boards and cushions on
it and then it started to rain. Then they put on slickers, and when
the rain stopped at 3 o'clock in the morning, they started out
with an old umbrella as a top over the back of the truck. After
traveling a while they slide off the grade into a sea of mud. After
pushing from the back of the truck they got out and started off.
They picked up a number of fellows going to the game, and when
they got tired of their company they told them to get off. A Ford
roadster passed them and a man started laughing at them. Miss
Lambert took a rotten apple and hit the man who was driving the
roadster in back of the head. Their truck was covered with pen-
nants and when they got to the town where the game was to be
held, they did not regard the traffic rules. On their way home they
lost their way and were picked up. Next morning the headlines
of the paper read, "Undaunted Coeds Ride in Truck."
I know that this article of mine will never be in the headlines
of any paper so I might as well say, "It is Ended."
Frosh: Where did you get that bump on your head?
Soph: Oh, that's where a thought struck me.
Mr. Morgan: A fool can ask more questions than a wise man
Frank McGaraghan: I guess that's why I flunked my last
Miss Fitzell: Ed, have you got those angles in your head?
Ed. Cowen: No, I'm not a squarehead.
Doctor: Deep breathing, you understand, destroys microbes.
Melvin Shuster: But, doctor, how can I force them to breathe

Eureka Hi usually receives a number of annuals from schools
outside the state, but owing to the fact that our exchanges were
not sent out until late, the year-books from the distant schools
have not arrived, although We hope that We shall receive some so
that We may see how they are organized, edited and printed.,
On looking over the older annuals We can plainly see that
every year they improve, and those of 1925 have contributed their
share to the improvement.
The Sequoia Wishes to thank the following schools for the
year-books which they have so generously sent us. We have read
them with particular interest and have found many helpful sug-
gestions in them.
Cloverdale Union High School
Yours is a very good annual. The "newsy', items near the
back are especially good- Wouldn't it improve your book if it had
a literary department?
"Cardinal and Gold"
Oxnard Union High School
Your annual has a large, well organized literary section. The
snaps are especially good, and they add greatly to the appearance
of your book. The cartoons are "great,"
Placer Union High School
The pictures of the seniors are very well arranged. Your an-
nual shows a great deal of work and planning.
Polytechnic High School
Long Beach, California.
This is an ideal magazine. It must have taken a lot of work.
The art is especially good. You have some unusually fine poetry
in your annual. Perhaps the margins are a little too narrow.
"Black and Gold"
San Pedro High School
San Pedro, California.
Good-but the green ink makes one feel like a freshman.
You have a very good literary section-
Modesto Union High School
Yours is the best annual that we have received. It shows work
and planning to the highest degree. The absence of "adds" shows
that the students are backing the staff in its project.

The years of 1925-1926 have proven a most prosperous and
successful administration for the associated students of the Eur-
eka High Scliool. This is largely due to the efliciency of the ofiicers
in charge of the various organizations and classes and the interest
manifested by the students. The clubs and organizations of the
high school have proved a great benefit to the student body. They
have not only fostered interest in activities, which have been along
civic, mathematic, Spanish and social lines but they have
done much to develop school spirit by bringing the individual stud-
ents into closer touch, giving them common interest outside of
regular routine of classrooms, discouraging petty jealousies and
furnishing incentives to friendly rivalry.
Without the different school activities and clubs, school life
would be dull and uninteresting for the students so it is up to them
to keep the clubs active. The largest activity this year is the C irls'
League. More has been accomplished by the girls this year than
of any other in the history of the school. The first girl organiza-
tion known in the high school life of the Eureka school was a Drill
Corps organized in 1897. There was much discussion on the part
of the parents before this club was allowed to be organized.
It was a triumph on the part of the girls when they were ad-
mitted to the Debating Club which was very popular in 1897.
These two clubs died out in a few years and we have now the dif-
ferent organizations that we are all interested in and give a good
part of our time to. It is the hope of all that the interest shown in
last year's and this year's organizations will be found in the

The 4A class, the graduating class of June 1926, is one which
has set a precedent for future classes. It is what might be termed
a "pioneer class." First in the Junior year, it established the
custom of giving a Junior Class Night, and, besides, its members
were the first to show a little originality in the selection of a class
ring. Later in its Senior year, this 4A class sponsored a Senior
Ball--the first of its kind within most students' memories. This
illustrious class started the custom of inserting a memorial block
of bronze in front of the school which custom we hope will be con-
Our advisors for this year have been: Miss Meredith, Miss
Thompson, Mr. Rigast and Mr. Doren. 1
The 4B class oflicers during the fall semester were President,
Fred Bell, Secretary Helen Goyang and Treasurer, James Lind-
sey. We gave a sucessful dance in the early part of the semester-
The great event of our Junior year was the banquet which we gave
the Seniors in December of 1925. There were about eighty in at-
tendance at the banquet which was held at the Vance Hotel.
The Spring election resulted in the following oflicers being
elected: President, George Derby, Secretary, Irma Stevens, and
Treasurer, Melvin Leslie. In 1926 our class was reduced in size
by the loss of many of our active members,who went ahead into
the 4A Class. Those leaving us were: Lois Connick, Helen Goyan,
Marjorie Harper, Shirley Cameron, Caroline Adams, Bertrand
Carrington, and Frances Crowley.
In our Senior year we gave the following plays and entertain-
ments: "Three Pills in a Bottle," "The Beau of Bath," a violin
solo, by Miss Chakurian, a vocal duet, by Fay Clark and Lois Hep-
ler, and a Pirate Dance by the girls of the class. We also gave a
dance later in the term, which was a success from all standpoints.
We have at last completed our first two and one half years of
high school and have assumed the dignified and important position
of 3A's. In these two and one half years of school we have lost very
few members of our class but we have been glad to welcome a good
many new ones. The Junior class membership at present is about
In school activities this class has played an important part.
The main purpose or work this year is the Annual Junior and
Senior Banquet to be given on June 4. Candy was sold by the class
members at all the basketball games during the year and a very
interesting play called Vinegar Vaudeville Agency was put on by
the members to earn enough money to pay for the banquet. The
play was a huge success and enjoyed by all who were present.
The annual dance given by the Junior was held at the gym
and everyone was pleased at seeing the large crowd present. All
had a good time and this helped to secure the last dance given by
the 4A Class.
A The officers for this year's program were:
President .................,.............. Walter Dolfini
Secretary .................... e,.e i Katherine Nellist
Treasurer S ....,.......,................... Kenneth May
The 3B Class, which entered E. H. S. in January, 1924, has
many accomplishments to its credit, among which are candy sales,
and successful school dances.
At the first meeting called by the class this term the following
oiiicers were elected :
President ............ . ...... J ere Chain
Vice President ...... .......... I rvin Kelly
Secretary ........... ....... C herry Poland
Treasurer ..........,......................... Elvie Burnell
Council Member ........ Allen McCurdy
Almost at the beginning of the semester there was agitation
regarding class rings, but as no suitable ones could be selected
from those offered, the chairman of the ring committee sent for
more samples, and the matter is still pending.
The ever present question of funds was also seriously discuss
ed at this time. Plans were made for a dance but were aban-
doned because of opposition.

Are you acquainted with the Commercial Class of the Eureka
High School? If not, you have overlooked one of the most up-to-
date educational organizations, both as to equipment and output,
in the state, and that means it can be favorably compared with
any in the world!
The Commercial Class of the Eureka High School offers
courses in elementary and advanced bookkeeping, in accounting,
shorthand, Business English, salesmanship, commercial law, office
practice, and secretarial forms, the last two giving instruction in
filing, preparation of stencils, use of the mimeograph, and copying
of legal forms.
Four types of machines are' used in the typing room-the
Royal, Underwood, Remington, and L. C. Smith. During the
course of his two-year typing requirement, therefore, the student
has an opportunity to familiarize himself with the use and mech-
anism of all the standard makes. A most interesting exhibition of
the modern method of rhythmic typing instruction, as employed
in the Eureka High School, was given in the Masonic Hall during
Education Week by the Eureka High School typing classes.
Another of the events of special interest to the typing student
is the Annual Typing Contest, an H. C. A. L. event, which is held
each year in the early summer. Each member of the League acts
in turn as the hostess school, and pennants are awarded to the
winners. The Typing Contest of 1926 was held on May 8 at Ar-
cata, and Eureka proudly bore away three of the four pennants,
winning on both speed and accuracy in the Free For All and on
speed in the First Year Group. The winners with their records
are as follows:
Fifteen Minute Contest
Free For All
Name Errors Words per M imc te
Agnes Sunquist 24 65
Helen Helberg 2 59
First Year Group
Evelyn Snow 10 55
One Minute Contest
Camille Renfroe 0 64
No better idea of the work accomplished by the students of
the typing classes can be obtained than by considering the number
of medals and awards won by them during their present year.
From September, 1925 to May 1926 fthe date this article goes
to pressl there have been awarded to individual members of the
classes by the typewriter companies 119 certificates, 92 bronze
pins, 32 silver bars, 6 gold pins, and 3 gold pencils, the contesting
applicants making records of 30, 40, 50, 60, and 70 words per min-
ute for a period of fifteen minutes to win these honors.
At the opening of the school year last September, the Board
of Education added very materially to our equipment by purchas-
ing one of the latest model Burroughs Bookkeeping Machines.
This machine is motivated by electricity and does all the bookkeep-
ing necessary in a modern office, including making of the state-
ment, posting to the ledger, and bringing down the balance. We
have already projected a number of our bookkeeping students on
these machines in down-town offices.
And this brings us to the one chief aim of the Commercial
Class-the real reason for its existence-Project Work! Project-
ing leads directly in positions, and indirectly-by fitting the right
person to the right "job,'-to making happy and useful citizens.
The Commercial Class has had as many as forty-seven students
projected at one time 3 all of which means that while, for a part of
the day or week, these forty-seven students are pursuing their
studies in the school-room, for the remainder of the time they are
doing actual commercial work in the particular field in which they
are most interested in some down-town store or office, and are re-
ceiving regular wages per hour for these services, too. Such an
apprenticeship almost inevitably terminates first in regular em-
ployment in that particular position, and later in advancement. A
situation like this, of course, is rendered possible only through the
splendid cooperation of the business houses of Eureka, and our
sincere tribute to their unending assistance is an attempt to ren-
der them each day more efficient service. There is hardly an office
in the business district of Eureka today in which there is not some
representative of the Eureka High School Commercial Class. One
example of this project work is the Public Stenographer's Desk in
the Eureka Inn. This desk is occupied both during the summer and
through out the school year by students from the advanced steno-
graphic sections of the Eureka High School Commercial Class.
Any work acceptable at a regular Public Stenographeris Desk is
received at this desk, and includes the transcribing of letters and
telegrams, the copying of manuscripts, and the mimeographing
of circulars, programs, and the like.
There are two possible courses in Eureka High School open
to the student interested in commercial work. He may take the
regular four-year high school courses, specializing in commercial
work, with history, English, or mathematics as co-laterals. Such a
course leads to graduation from high school, with a secretarial
certiicate in addition to his diploma. Or he may, if time is short
and funds low, take the special two-year course devoted to com-
mercial subjects only. Such a course leads to a certificate of pro-
ficiency in bookkeeping and stenography. During the second year
the student is always able to aid himself financially through his
projectwork, and if his work is up to the standard required by
the department, positions are never lacking into which he can step
upon the completion of his work. The commercial classes at pres-
ent are made up of both types of students.
If, as some of our leading educators believe, the aim of educa-
tion is to fit the individual to iill most happily and efficiently his
particular notch in life, then our Commercial Class is, in itself,-
we believe-its own excuse for being.

THE REDWOOD BARK
"Bigger and better than ever," was the motto of the '26 staff of
the Redwood Bark. That they succeeded in carrying out this motto
is shown by the fact that they published the largest edition of
this paper ever issued at this school--12 big pages. The main feat-
ure of this edition was a four page literary section. Poetry, verse,
prose, and previously unwritten history of Humboldt County was
featured in this edition which met with a record-breaking sale.
Among other accomplishments, the 1926 Redwood Bark staE
"scooped" the local papers on a big news article regarding the pro-
posed Historical pageant. The Redwood Bark published a full
account of this four hours before the first local newspaper.
The staff of the Redwood Bark for the past school year was

QUILL and SCROLL
The Journalism class of E. H. S. owes much credit to its spon-
sor, Mr. J. M. Bragg, who organized the group in the Fall of 1925.
Since then the members have put forth their best efforts in the
determination of the theory and practice of a broad journalism.
Examples of our work and policy may be found in the high
school paper, "The Redwood Bark." In the Journalism class the
members discussed the general policy and the details of the var-
ious editions. The paper has been made larger and better in qual-
ity and enjoys a wider voluntary circulation.
The added literary section has encouraged students of writ-
ing ability to submit their work and this has helped to widen the
circulation. Many good poems were received from students and
from Miss Bedell's English class. A wide publicity was thereby se-
cured for the product of their pens.
The young journalists in interviews with pioneers have un-
earthed hitherto unwritten history of Humboldt County. Some of
the articles were printed locally and others sent to the State Hist-
orical Society at Berkeley. Every member brought in some hist-
orical material and some were first printed through our efforts.
It is hoped that this plan will not be discontinued and that the
Pioneers will freely volunteer their historical stories. This histor-
ical collection was the most original and interesting subject the
jounalists undertook this term.
The students have secured credit for work on the school paper
by means of entering the class in journalism.
Another line of research work is the preparation of special
feature articles on the economics of the Redwood resources of
It is hoped that our adviser will continue the class into the
future, as a promising year of literary effort may be expected.
Marjorie Winter is secretary of the group of Quill and Scroll.
The Printing Department is planning the arrangement of a
scholarship for Edward Larson for efiicient work done in Lino-
typing for the past year.

GIRLS' BIG "E" SOCIETY
A Girls' Big "E" Society has recently been organized in this
school. The requirements for eligibility are two 'tins' in two dif-
ferent sports or one "IL" and one bar in one sport. The require-
ments were made high so that girls who go out for a sport one year
will have something to work for the next.
The pui pose of this organization is to foster a better spirit
of sportmanship among the g'rls, to make the "E" of greater value
to the owner by raising its standard, and to keep a record of' all
athletic events which might be of interest to this club.
The ofiicers of this organization are:

BOYS' BIG "E" CLUB
The boys' Big "E" Club was organized at the beginning of
the Fall term of 1924, by a number of boys to whom block "E's"
had been awarded and who wished to elevate the value of the "E"
and better the athletics as a whole.
A constitution and by-laws were drawn up and officers for
the ensuing year elected. Darrel Cloney was chosen as president,
Harold Larson as secretary and Edgar Sammons as treasurer
with Mr. Marquam as adviser. The latter was very enthusiastic
in the work of the organization and did a great deal to help it in
every way possible. When he left he was presented with a pencil
and pen outfit by this organization as a token of' its appreciation
for what he had done.
Under the first regime the Big "E" club immediately took
steps to accomplish the ends for which it had been organized and
much was done.
In 1926 the following new officers were elected, President,
Dolph Timmermang Secretary, Bertrand Carrington 5 Treasurer,
The object of the club is to establish and conduct a museum
for the Eureka High School.
Some of the branches of work which will be in charge of La
Musee will be the exhibiting of old relics, repairing the priceless
flower collection which was made by Professor Carl Marshall and
presented to the Eureka High School some years ago, and prepar-
ing and exhibiting insect collections.
The club has already exhibited some of the boxes of its insect
collection. This collection was prepared by the members and the
insects are very well arranged according to their scientific order.
La Musee contributed a portion of the biological exhibit at
the Annual Wild Flower Show which was held early in April and
also to the Eureka High School exhibit held at the Masonic Audi-
torium during National Education Week.
The oilicers of the La Musee are:

The purpose of the Ex Why Club is to further social activities
and the enjoyment of Mathematics. The meetings are held once a
month in the form of parties. At these parties programs are given
and games are played. The games are made up of math puzzles
and math games while the program consists of accounts of the
lives of great Mathematicians. The adviser for this year is Miss

At present there are twenty in the club and these members
were required to have two and one half years of math before they
were allowed to join. The purpose of the club is to further social
activity and the enjoyment of mathematics. Business meetings are
held once a month, usually at one of the member's homes. After-
wards a social time is enjoyed by all. Mr- Frye has been the Rad-
ical Club's advisor this year.
Although a recent organization of the Eureka High School,
the Engineers' Club has already accomplished much.
It is composed of students of the Eureka High School and
Junior College who are interested in Engineering. The club visits
local concerns and after visiting discusses all the engineering pro-
jects. Since the club was organized, it has met with the business
men in the cafeteria, visited the telephone oflice, met with the local
engineers at the Hotel Vance every month, and has visited Car-
son's Mill for the purpose of studying the engineering projects
The club has a membership of 26. Officers of the year were:

YE OLDE TOWNE CLUB
Ye Olde Towne Club, consisting of the members of the first
period Civics Class, has been one of the most active clubs in the
school. The purpose is to attain better citizenship and to help keep
our city clean. The officers for the past year have been as follows:
President ....................oee......... Grace Long
Vice President ........eo,e.... Howard Noyes
Secretary ................ Rose Marie Nordeck
Sergeant-at-Arms ........eeee Galen McCrae
Reporter ......... ...... Elizabeth Levasseur
Its activities have been many and varied. About twice a
month a speaker from the town is asked to give a talk to the club.
Two very interesting speeches were given by Mr. Albee and Miss
Guidery. The club met at 8.30 one morning and Went to Dr.
Dorais' office where an interesting demonstration and talk was
given on the eye. One of the big features of its year's program has
been the fostering of the Old Clothes Drive Wherein a very credit-
able act of charity was accomplished by gathering old clothes and
giving them to the needy.
A treasure hunt at Camp Bower proved a big social success
for the club.
"R" GANG CLUB
The first period civics class of the term from September to
December organized into a club and called itself the "R" Gang
Club. The purpose of this club was to promote better citizenship
among the students, and to give practice in parliamentary law.
The first few meetings were spent in adopting a constitution.
After this had been finished the following officers were elected:
President .................................. May Shields
Vice President ...... ............ H azel Eskelson
Secretary .... ...... Rose Marie Nordeck
Treasurer .................................. Glenn Shlvely
Reporter C cc............................ A Howard Noyes
The meetings of the club were held every Friday during reg-
ular class time, at which business affairs were discussed, and some
very interesting talks were given by various men of the town.
Through the work which was undertaken by this club, the mem-
bers feel that they gained valuable training in good citizenship
and the use of the parliamentary law.

Meetings were held every two weeks and much work was accom-
The first subject that the Club took up was a study of govern-
ment. Under this subject the government of our own community,
national government, state government, and government in ia
town were discussed. In the second place, our group studied Fire
Prevention- A little play dealing with fires from candles on
Christmas trees were written by a member of the Club. Our third
piece of work was to support the Careful Driving campaign.
Flowers were sent to all members of the Club who were forced to
stay out of school on account of illness.
Several speakers gave us very worthwhile, interesting talks
on subjects which as Civics students we were vitally interested in.

SERVICE POINTS '
The Service Point System has been established by the Board
of Education upon the recommendation of the Faculty-
The idea at the base of this system is that of recognizing that
service to the school, to others, and to society, is quite as important
as getting one's lessons.
N o Service Points are to be allowed unless the service is effec-
iently, thoroughly and honestly rendered. The Faculty shall be the
A student shall not make more than 13 Service Points per
semester nor more than 25 during one school year.

Unless otherwise stated these points are per semester. Other
Service Points are to be added as different forms of service arise.
To get points a student must petition the Faculty within one
month after the service for which the student wants credit was
rendered. In case of student oflicers petition must be made at least
two weeks before the close of school.
MERIT and DEMERIT SYSTEM
The merit and demerit system has been established in the
Eureka High School upon the recommendation of the Faculty and
by authority of the Board of Education.
The fundamental principle at the base of the system is good
citizenship. It is felt that a student should be lead to appreciate
that school crimes are just as serious for a student as civil crimes
are for the adult. If the school condones these crimes by paying in-
suflicient attention to them the students are led to believe that they
are less serious than is actually the case. The recognition of con-
stituted authority, full appreciation of the value of law and orded,
and the knowledge that a healthy public opinion is the safeguard
of society, these are the aims of the merit and demerit system.
And, too, as students are given a voice in administering justice
under this system, it is hoped that the system will mean a real
government development from within.
Rules of the System :
1- With the beginning of each semester the student shall be
given 100 merit credits.
Merit credits may be lost as follows:
' Unnecessary tardiness to school ............ 1 credit or more
Cutting school or classes ...................... 8 credits or more
10 credits or more
Forgery ....... 20 credits or more
20 credits or more
20 credits or more
Destroying public property ................ 20 credits or more
Lying .................... as
Stealing .................................... 2 as
Rudeness, disorderly conduct, smoking, bad language,
and other conduct unworthy of a Eureka High School
Student .... . .................................. 5 credits or more
Throwing paper or rubbish in yards and in build-
ings ....................................r.o .... . . A .... 5 credits or more
N o student shall be recommended to an institution of higher
learning who shall average less than 80 merit credits per semester.
No student shall be graduated from the Eureka High School
who shall average less than 70 merit credits per semester.
Any student who, at the end of any semester, shall have a bal-
ance of 95 merit credits remaining for that semester shall be
granted 20 extra credits.
Any student whose record has been reasonably clear for one
school year may petition the Merit and Demerit Committee to
have his demerit credits erased. It shall rest with the committee
as to whether or not the petition or any part of it shall be allowed.
The Merit and Demerit Committee shallbe composed of:
The principal of the school.
The Vice Principal of the school.
One faculty member elected by the Faculty for one semester.
The President of the Student Body.
Two members of the student body elected by the Student
Council for one semester. A
The Principal of the School shall be chairman of the commit-
Any student who has been accussed of committing a
student crime may ask for a hearing before this committee, or
any case may be assigned to the Committee for hearing.
This committee shall have full authority to determine the
merits and demerits in the case of each student of the school. Petty
cases determined by the oflice shall be reported to the Committee
The merit and demerit record of the student shall be made a
part of the permanent record of the school. -

THE EUREKA SCHOOL PLAN
The Eureka School Plan provides for the grouping of stud-
ents according to their interests, capacities, abilities, and the
length of time they intend to stay in school.
After three years of careful study the faculty of the Eureka
High School has set forth the following principles, and it is upon
these that the Eureka School Plan is based.
1. Every individual has a right to receive, at public expense,
that training which will best it him for his life work, but no
person, either because of mental inability or unwillingness to
work, has any right to interfere with the progress of another.
2. The home, employing establishments, the school, and all
other organizations of the community, must each assume its full
responsibility if the student is to receive proper training.
3. There are at least three types of students in every high
school, and the school is under obligation to serve each type
4. It is impossible to have set standards because the abilities
of individuals differ so widely.
5. Academic education and industrial education are merely
two different means of preparing for life work. They do not rep-
resent two different kinds of education.
6. An extension in the curriculum can not take care of mental
inability or unwillingness to work.
7. The school officials, having control of the schools and being
in touch with the homes of the community, have in their hands the
leadership for the general recognition of these principles.
The first step in the application of the seven principles was
to classify the students. They were divided into four groups after
gaining the assistance of the parents, and giving a number of
In Group I were placed all students who figure on attending
some university. The rules of the school concerning group are,
that a student must be graduated from this group in order to be
recommended for college. He may stay in this group so long as 'his
marks are 2- or better, and when dropped from the group he may
get back again by bringing his work up to standard. For students
in this group there is little choice in the Work, because the course
is based almost entirely on university requirements.
In Group II are stuilents who plan on being graduated from
high school, but cannot go to college. They intend, probabaly, to
take up industrial Work, and positions in the community.
In group III were placed students Who do not figure on high
school graduation, but merely attending school two or three years.
The students, who are compelled by law to attend school four
hours per Week until eighteen years of age were placed in Group
IV. To take care of the students in Group III and IV, short
couress were provided in the industrial division of the school.
These courses were so organized that a student could complete in
one year what ordinarily Would take two or three years. The stud-
ents immediately became interested in these short courses.
Another feature of the Plan is the employment bureau which
was organized for the purpose of placing trained students into
positions. This feature met with the approval of the business men
of the community.
That the people of the community have confidence in the Plan
is shown by the fact that nearlv half a million dollars was voted
for the erection of P Junior High School.
A CLOSING MESSAGE from PRESIDENT HELL.
A message from President Bell states ,"In closing my term
as Student Body president I wish to thank the members for their
support and the advisers for their services during the past year.
I have had a most enjoyable time in attempting to preside over the
Student Body in a fit manner. We have had an unusually pros-
"I think that all of you will join with me in paying tribute to
Principal George C. Jensen, who has accomplished so much in el-
evating the standards of the Eureka High School, and who will be
so missed when he leaves it this June for fields more worthy of
his administrative genius."

The past football season has been a very successful one for
Eureka, Coach O- L. Edwards had a lot of material to start with
and by the time the season got under way he had greatly improved
it. We tied with Ferndale for the Championship and represented
Humboldt County in the C. I. F. The team took a trip to Fort
Bragg and played a 6-6 tie but won the right to continue in the
C. I. F. by the toss of a coin.
One of the new features of this season was the feeds provided
by the Hospitality Committee of the Girls' League for the visiting
teams when the games were played in Eureka.
Those who turned out for football this season were: Glenn
Shively, Dolph Timmerman, Harold Lameroux, Bernie Pelle, J ere
Chain, Clarence Wedige, Henry Lane, Charles Quigg, Bill Quillici,
Paul and Raymond Clary, Fred Jewett, Albert Massei, Lincoln
Bell, Melvin Leslie, James and Frank McGaraghan, James and
Albert LeDoux, Jim Dillon, George Cousins, Ernest Murray,
Richard Derby, Kenneth Ward, and Clarence Moseley.
Following is an account of the games.
OC TOBEH 3
Eureka. 36 Arcata U
The Eureka High School football team got off to a good start
in the race for the County football Championship by downing the
Arcata pigskinners by a score of 36to 6. It was a hard fought
game from start to finish, featured with long runs by Timmerman

and Shively. After the game both teams were given a light lunch
prepared by the cooking class at the Arcata High School.
EZWGIW 45 Fortuna 0
Eureka's "Phantom of the Gridiron" in the form of Glenn
Shively was mainly the cause of Fortuna's defeat at the hands of
the Eureka outfit that afternoon. Shively accounted for four of
Eureka's touchdowns and was a big factor in stopping Fortuna's
numerous attempts to score. The outcome of,the game was never
in doubt. It was just a case of how long Fortuna could keep
OCTOBER 1 7
Eureka Ferndale 7
October 17 Eureka and Ferndale met in their annual duel
for the gridiron supremacy of the county and in spite of the Red
and White's most valiant attempts to avert the tragedy Eureka
was returned the victor. The superior weight of the Eureka ag-
gregation was the deciding factor of the game. Shively was the
shining light of the game, accounting for five of Eureka's touch-
downs. Paul Clary played a good game at end. W. Guileri and
Casanova were the outstanding players for Ferndale.
Eureka 39 Fortuna 0
The Eureka Logger's superior weight was again the deciding
factor in their fourth victory of the season. The Red and Green
offense was rather slow in getting started and played a loose game
all the way through but were never in danger. The Fortunans
played a much improved game over the last encounter.
Eureka 6' Arcata Q
The Eureka second string football squad proved their right
to wear the red and green when they defeated the hard fighting
Arcatans by the close score of 6-2. The scrubs held Arcata score-
less for three quarters when they were relieved by the first string.
In the last quarter the first string men got too anxious to
outshine the valiant scrubs and a misplay signal almost cost Eur-
eka the game. Wedige recovered the ball for Eureka but was
downed behind the line for a touchback, giving Arcata her only
SCOPE. Q: .
Eureka 0 Ferndale 1 7
Brain triumphed over brawn this afternoon when the Red
and Green outfit was shut out by Ferndale. The breaks of the
game seemed always to go against the boys from Eureka, and at
times when it was most needed they lacked the reserve strength
that would make it "first and ten." It was purely a case of over-
confidence on the part of Eureka and they woke up to their folly
too late. Ferndale's victory gives them a tie with Eureka for the
Eureka 6 Fort Bragg 6'
The goddess of luck seemed to favor Coach Edwards. After
the Fort Bragg and Eureka aggregations had battled four hectic
quarters to a tie, Coaches Edwards and Vern Hickey quitely
settled the matter by tossing a coin. In spite of the calm way in
Which it was settled, the game itself was a thriller from start to
finish. Both teams played their best game of the season. Brett of
Fort Bragg and Shively of Eureka were the outstanding stars.
Over 125 local fans went down with the team on the special
train and gave the plyers plenty of moral support.
UNLIMITED BASKE TBALL
Turning out championship teams seems to be a habit with
Coach O. L. Edwards, and this yearls basketball team was no ex-
ception. After winning the championship of the H. C. I. L. the
team played two games in the C. I. F. winning a hard fought game
with Willits and dropping the other to the fast Napa aggregation.
This year's team was one of the largest in the history of the
school, the smallest player being 5 feet 11 inches in height and
largest being 6 feet 3 inches. The players who went through the
season and took the two trips were: Captain Alvar Norgard,
Glenn Shively, Lincoln Bell, Clarence Wedige, Bernard Pelle,
Clarence Wedige,, Bertrand Carrington, and Charles Quigg.

The boys who have turned out for the baseball team this year
are: Captain Glenn Shively, Bill Quillici, Harold Lamoreaux,
Clarence Moseley, Don McCrae, Lincoln Bell, Bernie Hemenway,
Bert Carrington, Arda Bennett, Fred Corsetti,, Al Maclnnis,
Sully Montgomery, Paul D. Clary Sam Dennis, Al Lamar, and
Eureka hasn't lost a track championship in the last three
years and if the flock of candidates out for the team this year is
indication of a strong, well balanced outfit, Eureka is right in line
for another pennant. Shively, Quigg, and Lindsey will set at rest
all the Red and Green worries in the sprints while the middle
distances will be taken care of by Timmerman, Little, Campbell,
Dolph and Ray Clary. The two Derbys and Hungate will carry
the Red and Green in the mile. Linford Scott, the holder of the
county high jump record, is back and jumping higher than ever.
The above mentioned are only a few of the stars that will strut
their stuff this season in the Red and Green.
Lightweight track championships and Eureka haven't got to-
gether for the last several years but according to all advance in-
formation We're due for the blue ribbon this year. Stedman Falk
has been putting both the heavyweight and lightweight squads
through their paces for the past month and both squads are shap-
ing up well. Those out for lightweight track this year are: Wayne
and Jack Simpson, Veldon Nixon, Don McRae, Sutherland Mur-
ray, Geddes Harper, Gilbert Shirley, Joe Sullivan, and Tom Dolf.

This year the Eureka Lightweights got off to a bad start and
it wasn't until they had absorbed a good drubbing at the hands of
Fortuna that they settled down and played as Wearers of the Red
and Green should play. After their first defeat Dolph Timinerman
took them under his wing as head coach and for the rest of the
season they gave a good account of themselves- One of the features
of their games this season Was the long distance shooting of "Dead
Eye" Jack Simpson. Brother Wayne Simpson kept up his end of
the family name With his clever aggressive iioor Work. Those who
turned out for the team this year were: Wayne and Jack Simpson,
Veldon Nixon, Don McRae, Howard Gregerson, Frank Flaherty,
Melvin Babica, Harlan Bartlett, Henry Sundfors and Kenneth

The alumni of E. H. S. comprise thousands of graduates, but
due to understandable circumstances, all of them cannot be men-
tioned here. In fact, only a very few have been given notice. News
of others would be gladly received by the next Alumni Editor of
the Sequoia, and this department will be "continued in our next."
Thomas Hine, one of our most noted alumni, died recently in
Chicago, after gaining fame in chemical research work. It is
interesting to think that he must have first become interested in
this branch of science in the tower room of the Winship School,
where, as an article in this Sequoia states, the first inadequate
chemical equipment was set up. He wrote the prophecy for his
class in the form of verse, and it was published in the 1906
Sequoia. The prophecy was dated 1926 and there is some pathos
in the fact that his prophecy for himself, that he would be a chem-
ist, was the only one to come true, and when the twenty years had
passed he had died ,among the first of his class.
Agnes Roscoe is now a teacher at the Winship School.
Myrtle Webber is employed at the N. W. P. oflice.
Mrs. Arthur Logan was formerly Grace Roscoe.
Julia Dalton is a teacher at the Washington.
Senator Hans Nelson was a graduate of this school in 1906.

The motor bus industry has outgrown the claiming age. Facts
prevail. These are facts:
More White Busses are in service in this country than busses
of any other high-grade make.
More White Busses are sold-and delivered--the past year
than busses of any other high-grade make.
More than 100 buss companies operate fleets of from 10 to
328 White busses each-and thousands of additional Whites
serve bus operators in fleets of less than 10.
More than one-third of all the busses operated by street rail-
way companies are Whites.
Hundreds of White Busses are still in operation with records
of from 100,00 to 600,00 and more money-earning miles.
White Busses are standard equipment in Yellowstone,
Rocky Mountain, Glacier, Yosemite, Rainer, and Grand Canyon
The White Company-pioneer builder of motor busses-
has had experience in the bus business without a parallel for its
scope and thoroughness. White Busses were in operation as early

The American born boy and girl have never and will never
realize the value of Civics or in other words Good Citizenship.
Let us discuss this proposition of Citizenship more in detail
and just why it should be taught in our schools. In the first place I
made the sweeping statement in the first paragraph simply be-
cause ihe average American boys' and girls' home environment
gives them this Citizenship in an indirect manner, but they do not
recognize it in this stage of life. In the second place our National
Peace has been so firmly established during the past fifty years
that questions of disturbance have not called for civic attention on
the part of the younger generation. Therefore you can readily see
that to make our Government adequately appreciated by the
American student, Civics will have to be taught throughout the
entirety of our public school system.
I believe that there is one more fundamental reason why Civ-
ics should be taught, and that fundamental reason is the for-
eigner. Does the foreigner realize the opportunities of America?
Does the foreigner realize the chaos America has passed through
in her development? Does the foreigner appreciate the law and
order which are prevalent in America? Can the foreigner visual-
ize each of the above three unless he is taught to do so?
No! There has to be some driving power to push him and that
driving power can be vested only in the Civics Department of our
DO YOU KNOW THAT-
The first student body was organized in 1904?
Dr. Joe Walsh was the first student body president?
Ray Walsh was the first student body yell leader in 1912?
The first debating society was not a part of school course?
The first football suits were bought in 1904 by taxing all
students Cthat would payl five cents a week?
Mayor Way coached a champion football team in 1904?
The first "Block E's" were issued in 1904?
In 1905 there were six instructors and nine courses in the
Eureka High School.
Arcata was once a real football rival?
