VVeep, lower classmen, weep-the powerful, the illustrious, the great class
of 1916 is leaving you-you are losing the leadership of the grandest class
that ever entered F. U. H. S. Nevertheless, struggle bravely on, little ones,
and perhaps you may be able to maintain to some extent the wonderful pres-
tige that we have built up for the school.
On a bright, sunny morning in August, 1912, a composed class of forty-
five members leisurely walked up the broad steps of Ferndale High, saunteretl
into the Assembly Hall, and calmly took their places:
The class was composed of the following: Ida Ambrosini, Dorthy Beck,
Clifford Bonnickson, Elise Brodersen, Henry Calanehini, Mary Canty, Dora
Casanova, Bernard Chapin, Leighton Church, Mabel Clark, Anna Clausen,
Enod Collins, VVallace Crosby, Ethel Ericksen, Christina Ericksen, Dorothy
Fulmor, Irma Goble. George Hackett, Henry Hindley, Edna Lund, Edna
Matthews, Albert Martin, Aleta McGlaughlin, Lola McGlaughlin, Mary
Montgomery, Sidney Morrison, Regina Nye, Verny Oeschger, Rae Paine,
Flora Perry, Johanna Petersen, Froda Petersen, Lillie Petersen, Cyrus Price,
.Xrthur Rasmussen, Christian Rasmussen, Hazel Rees, Erla Ring, Helene
Ring, Coleman Scott, Mildred Smith, Archie Svveasey, Ray Sweet, Merton
Taubman, june Worthington.
Unlike other Freshmen Classes, we made no foolish blunders nor did we
lose ourselves in the maze of rooms and classes.
The Upper Classmen, filled with a certain braggodocio-though they
realized we were a very unusual class-attempted to haze us, but they failed
so completely that a rule was passed forbidding hazing in the future.
The first thing we did was to organize our class, with the following of-
ficers: President, Bernard Chapin, V ice-President, Henry Calauchini, Sec--
rctary, Helene Ring, Treasurer, Dora Casanova, Seargent-at-arms, Henry
Hindley, Member of Executive Committee, Archie Sweasy. From that day
our influence has been felt throughout the school.
During the first semester, the school entertained us with an informal dance
which we returned some months later. Both affairs were greatly enjoyed bv
everyone. Early in the Spring we went on a picnic up Price Creek-this
established a custom which the other classes have since followed. Conse-
quently each year we have had our picnics and parties which have helped to
hold us together. After Christmas our number was increased by the addition
of two new members, Fae XVest and Esther H ough. 0
The next year found all of us but eight. eager to claim the title of Sopho-
more. This year our officers were: President, Erla Ring, Vice-President,
Enod Collins, Secretary, Ethel Ericksen. Seargent-at-arms, Albert Martin,
Member of Executive Committee, Ray Sweet. It was during this year that
we chose our classpin. NV e were the last class to have pins-the succeeding
classes deciding to have only the school pin. That year we established the
custom of having initation of the Freshmen--and through our efforts it was
a great success.
Thirty-four of us returned as Juniors, ready for hard work. VVe were also
joined by Gertrude Miller, thus increasing our numlber to thirty-five. Our
first business was to meet and elect the following officers: President, Coleman
Scott, Vice-President, Mildred Smith, Secretary, Christina Ericksen, Treas-
urer,Verny Oeschger, Seargent-at-arms, Christian Rasmussen, Member of
Executive Committee, Erla Ring. The greatest event of the year was the ball
which we gave in honor of the class of ,I5--VVS put our best efforts into it and
felt repaid by the assurance of everyone that it was enjoyed.
And now we come to our last year. Though there are but twenty-nine
of us: Elise Broderson, Mary Canty, Dora Casanova, Bernard Cha-pin,
Leighton Church, Mabel Clark, Anna Clausen, Christine Ericksen, Ethel
Ericksen, Irma Gobel, Henry Hindley, Edna Lund, Albert Martin, Aleta Mc-
glaughlin, Lola Mcglaughlin, Mary Montgomery, Sidney Morrison, Regina
Nye, Vernon Geschger, Lillie Petersen, Christian Rasmussen, Erla Ring,
Helene Ring, Coleman Scott, Mildred Smith, Archie Sweasey, Ray Sweet,
Merton Taubman, and Gertrude Miller, we are still the largest class to grad-
uate from F. U. H. S. This year especially under our class officers, Sidney
Morrison, President, Albert Martin, Vice-President, Dora Casanova, Sec-
retary, Elise Brodersen, Treasurer, Mabel Clark, Seargent-at-arms and Lola
McGlaughlin, Member of the Executive Committee we have been leaders in
everything, Student Body Government, Athletics, and Dramatics, but we have
not only been prominent in activities during our Senior year, it has been the
same throughout the four years. The Boys' Basket Ball Team, which has
held the championship for three years, has been composed almost entirely of
'16 men. It was greatly through the work of our boys that Ferndale carried
off the Cup at the last Track Meet-many of them holding County records.
Many of the Senior girls have worked hard and faithfully on the Basket Ball
Team for four years. Twenty of our members have won either block F is or
numerals. Two members of our class, Ray Sweet and Coleman Scott, have
held the office of Student Body President, two others, Helene Ring and Ethel
liricksen, the office of Student Body Secretary, in addition the following
Student Body officers have been chosen from our class: Athletic Manager,
Verny Oeschger, Seargent-at-arms, Ray Sweet, Yell Leader. Sidnev Morrison.
And now we are looking forward to Commencement, but we can not help
wishing that the weeks would grow longer and that That Day would still re-
main in the distance for we realize that it marks the end of our happy High
School life. T
NVe feel that we one a debt of gratitude to our teachers who have taken
such an interest in us and have done their utmost to fit us for the higher things
Now, although we are leaving Ferndale High, we will always support it
in its activities and remain loyal to the Red and VVhite.

I And I see my ear
icwf f" ff old classmates
X Of more than
ew, twenty years.
First there comes Archie Sweasey,
He has grown stooped and Worn.
He has learned to carry milk-pails
In the Wee cool hours of morn.
Anna Clausen? She's a Spinster
Of whom all they world .has heard.
Her' wealth she spends in trav'ling
Which to many seems absurd.
Aleta, a second Le Zora,
Her hypnotizing is great,
She's been a lucky woman,
She's looking for a. mate.
Of Albert Martin, Fernda1e's mayor,
Of him you've surely heard!!
He instituted Women's suffrage.
They say that he's a. bird,
Bernard Chapin, always talking,
Is ever talking still.
He's busy selling sewing machines,
He's always sending bills.
Christina? a, jitney driver
In the city of Petrolia.
When you go there to stay
To the op'ra will roll ya!
Christian well known as Cutie,
Is a "night hawk" so they say,
A poor old stage-door Johnny,
He larks till break of day.
There comes before my memory
A famous and well known singer,
Colie is on the Orpheum Route,
He is known as Charlie Ringer.
Dora Cas., once Secretary,
ls sailing thru: the sky,
An aviator famous.
"Where is she?" we all cry.
Who is that wonderful speaker,
A Suffragette so fair.
Why it's Elise B, of Ferndale!
She's the leader, I declare.
Firla Ring is nowha sport.
She rivals Eleanore Sears,
She fishes, hunts and golfs,
Nothing does she fear.
Edna's a matron, stern and cross,
Of a disciplined school for girls.
She doesn't approve of thelir laughter
And even forbids their curls,
Ethel she's a model,
For Lady Duff-Gordon's show,
She's working now in Paris,
Wh-ere for fashions we all go.
Gertrude? Oh yes, she's busy,
She works from morn till night,
Midst soap and clothes and water,
She scrubs with all her might.
Helene's engageld by Ringling's,
She's the bicycle rider there:
She loops the loop and so forth,
To breathe we do not dare.
Henry- an ardent reformer,
No longer the hunter bold,
He's always making speeches,
Telling of our sins so bold.
Bridget, or rather Irma,
Is busy dressing hair,
Her office is Fifth Avenue,
Where she pulls the tresses fair.
Lola once so studious,
She couldn't havel chosen worse,
Is living now in Harlem,
And is busy writing verse.
Let me think where is our Lillie?
Living now in China Row,
She's grown worn and wrinkled,
Still hunting for a beau.
Leighton is no longer single,
His wife wears puffs and wigs,
While he poor hen-pecked husband,
Is busy tending kids,
Merton Taubman is- a leader,
And the movies are his art,
He's grown to be a winner,
He, has now the leading part.
Mabel is on the "Tribune" staff,
London has heard of her fame
She gives advice to lovelorn fblks,
She works with might and main.
Mary's a mill operator,
She's men under her by the score,
She believes on this new proposition
Of women FOREVER MORE.
Then comes a. lady barber,
Let me think-I know her way-
It is Mildreld Smith of Ferndale,
Known to fame, the people say.
Mary's a lady of leisure,
Montgomery's not her name,
She associates with the Astors,
A high flown society dame.
Tuski's the same old codger.
As he was in the days of yore,
A dign reading 'tSweet's Corn Plas-
Now hangs above his door.
Regina, I remember,
Is at Coney Isle, New York,
A ballet dancelr famous,
She's dancing now in Cork.
Let me think for half a minute,
Where's Germy, grim and bold
Yes I 'member now. Exploring:
He's discovered 3, new pole.
Sidney, our last President,
Is an inventor of great fame,
He invented a brand new baseball,
He now plays the famous game.
There they are the twenty-nine of 'em,
B ieve me it's a care
To try to think how all of them
Are scattered everywhere.

Gerald threw down his pen and with one swing of his muscular arm, swept
the papers covered with physics notes to the floor. His face was dismal in its
gloominess and despair, as he looked across the table at his room-mate whose
head was buried in a book entitled, "Browing's Poems."
"Ye Gods, Phil !"moaned Gerald. "Its no use. I'm all at sea. How can
I write up these experiments when I didn't do them in the Lab? VVe had no
right to cut. Suppose yo-u've learned that poem off word for word? It's no
use: you and I, old boy, are going to flunk out flat. No diploma-no gradua-
tion for us-Ch, Lord! VVhat will our folks say ?"
f'Shut up!" cried Philips, he sat upon the edge of the bed and threw his
Browning at Gerald's grouchy head. Shut up and stop mumbling. I'm about
all in from worrying over this old English. Gee, I guess we're in wrong and
theres no way out. VVe never can make up all our work. XV e always have
a devil of a time but I guess we'll pay fo-r this special one. "But sayf' and
Philip's face brightened and he threw himself at length upon the bed and con-
tinued between spasms of laughter, HI wonder if it wasn't almost worth our
coming graduation disgrace! A whole two weeks behind the scenes with that
palmist show! Didn't we do some fool stunts, though? It just gave me Hin--
ternal laughitisn to watch the gaping, staring audience when it thought we
were in the spirit world a la hypnotism. But say, Gerald, do you know once
or twice I felt as if I was going under the spell of that dark fellow's evil eye.
No joking, he'd have got me sure if he'd kept at me a little longer. How
about you ?" '
f'Me? Oh, I could hypnotize a whole carload of people-I believe I could,
ali ight. At least I could get away with it as well as Monsieur Bardini did-----
and get away with a lot of cash too."
Phil blew a cloud of blue smoke rings and watched them float upward
and disappear. His face was clouded in deep thought. Gerald knew a "big
hunch" was gripping his chum. just as he was ready to speak, Phil came off
the bed with a bound, and real inspiration transfigured his face. y
'WVe can't graduate unless the unforeseen happens. So let's cut it all and
start a show of our own. VVe can disguise and you can take the hypnotizing
and I'll do the palm reading. Let's try it for a little while. I suppose our
blood is wild to think of such a stunt. But just concentrate your mind's eye
upon those two empty rooms in the Greyton building--imagine weird curtains
and tapestry with palm-prints, crescent moons and stars and all sorts of spooky
decorations. Get into your mind a view of those rooms-all wierdly fantastic
with subdued green and yellow lights-making the atmosphere fairly reek
with occult sensations and spirit presences, Lord! Gerald, the idea's got me
completely-it's in my blood. Be a sport and take a dive into unknown realms
So this is how Greenburg was set agog by the sudden opening of "The
Medium Parlors." This town could not understand how the two white-
bearded. black-gowned old mediums could "strike it rightu every time and
actually tell the people's past lives, and hinted some mighty true things that
had come to pass. VVhy, they had told Mrs. Gray not to worry over her sou,
Gerald, and his chum, Philip Hardin. Saying that they were on a little hike
to the Exposition and would be back in time to graduate.
Qne night, three days later, the two boys sat in full disguise and talked
"VVe're sure making some easy cash and having all kinds of sport. Gee,
it's a circus and I'd not have one twinge of conscience or a single regret for all
the lies I've told, if we could go back and graduate, Phil. Do you know that
Marjorie will turn me down cold if I don't graduate? Heavens, she may
even get to care for that junior, Thornton, who sticks around her half the
time. And I'll bet a gold nugget you wonit have such a smooth sailing with
Grace if you flunk out like an ordinary yap. VVhy that Graeme gink may
beat your time a mile."
"Well it'll be his last mile--I've got to see him do it first. Somethings
got to happen tonight so we can go back to college. I'm not afraid to face
an ex. in anything except English, and I guess the Physics is all that has got
your goat. Something must happen and happen in a hurry."
And something did happen. Gerald almost lost his beard in his effort to
get out of sight and Phil's throat was so dry he couldn't say a Word for a
moment as the boys spied two figures approaching their mysterious realm from
"Ye gods! It's Miss Benton, my English teacher, and Mr. Hampton, your
Physics prof.l Oh, ye evil spirits come to our aid, in this, our trying hour l"
But Gerald grabbed him and made excited Phil do a few hesitations and
one-steps as he cried.
"Luck's coming our way. Wlioa, boy, steady now, and we'll drive to
graduation with colors flying! Kid, do you remember what that old Mrs. Davis
told us about the broken romance between Mr. Hampton and Miss Benton?
lfVe'd never have found that out if it hadn't been for that old gossip. The
gods are with us! Now we know where, when, and why their quarrel took
place and what was said-thanks to Mrs. Davis' eavesdropping. When you
spring it all on Miss Benton and I "hand that packagel' of information to
Hampton and we tell them it is ordained in the realm of the unknown that
their love is to bloom again, say old man, they'll both be so addled we can
get an E and a double plus on our reports. Nothing to it. XVe'll give them
each a lecture on foolish pride and stubbornness and we'll exact a promise
from each to go in the moonlight tonight to the old place where they quar-
reled. Make the time eight o'clock. Of course they'll meet and the moon-
light will do the rest. Eight, Phil, remember. Now I'll receive him in here
and you engineer her into your realm in the other room. Neither will know
the other is here. And after it is all over and they've made up, we'll suddenly
leave town and then the real Phil and Gerald will turn up, go to school, dig
in like sinners at those hooks and then get Hampton and her into a corner and
tell them the whole thing and threaten to tell about it in the next student hotly
meeting if they don't give us enough credits to graduate. Say, they'll como
across like good old sports for they know what it would mean to have such a
rich joke get out among that hunch of students. XYhy, theyld have to leave
town-the whole country would run them high. This is the climax. NVe will
win sure V'
.Xiicl that is how it happened that Gerald and Phil had seats just hehiud
Marjorie and Grace with their unerring feet almost touching the great hauk
of foliage and flowers, that lined the stage ahove the footlights.
But still the blood raced in the pulses of Gerald and Philip at memory of
their fun as fortune-tellers.
,X lift of eyehrows and a dancing wink of twinkling eyes was all the boys
dared exchange to telegraph "medium messages' which translated meant-
"l-et's he the first to congratulate Miss Benton and Hampton on their
engagement! Afterward we can congratulate ourselves and won't it he sport
to watch the faces of Marjorie and Grace when we spring it on them after the
,lunior Ball tomorrow night ?" -

I remember, I remember the schoolhouse by the creek,
The cobwebs in the corners, and the roof that used to leak.
I remember how the Sophies in the drippings that came down,
Used to sail their little boatlings, pleasure-craft of great renown.
I remember, I remember the fumes 'of horrid smell
As they floated from the Chem. Lab. down the corridor, and fell
On us-cold and wet and tardy, as we hovered 'round the heat
That came through the iron gratings, to our chilled and soggy feet.
I remember how we struggled with the angles and the planes
Of Geometry the blessed,-for it gave us growing pains.
I remember, I remember that English, Oh so hard-
And the little P's and minus F's that sprinkled well my card.
I remember how in winter, the thermometer went down
To fifty-two and forty-eight, and lower-I'll be bound,
Till in History and Drawing we would get so awful cold
That our brains froze up quite solid, and our fingers wouldn't hold
Our pencils and our compasses and all our drawing stuff g
Then we'd fling them in a little drawer and rush off in a huff.
I remember how in Study Hall we used to tap our feet,
But our teacher didn't like it, so she led us, smiling sweet Q Pj
To the office where we lingered thirty minutes after school
Wfhile we listened to a lecture on the breaking of a rule.
I remember-but I must not remember any more
For we love the dear old High School as we never did before,
All the struggles and the lectures and the lessons, and the-lack-
Make us long for just those pleasures that will never more come back
For you know it doesn't matter ,bout the building and the books,
'Bout the leakings, and the coldness and the dust, and dingy looks,
ltls the steadfastness of purpose, and the loyalty and pride
As we worked to make our High School best in all the country side,
'T was our love for one another, and our energy and vim
As we fought as team or rooters that the Red and VVhite might win.
'T was the fun we had together at our dances and our plays,
As we romped along together in our happy, carefree days.
So Good Bye to work and playtime in our high school by the creek,
IrVith the water in the basement, and the roof that used to leak.

The wild fowl of Humboldt County are thinning
out and it will not be long before a closed season
must be put on several species for a period of
several years. Formerly ducks, quail and wild
I pigeons were so plentiful that no thoughts were
hiven for their future welfare and as a result the
pigeons are nearly all gone and ducks and quail
are not nearly as plentiful as formerly.
The wild duck flight begins in this county
about the first of November, so that fine shoot-
ing is to be ha-l before the heavy storms and high
water comes. There are many variety of duck
on the marshes, the most conspicous being the mallard, teal, widgeon, sprig,
canvasback, and bluebill, and in addition to these are the spoonbill, pintail,
butterball, and other varieties. Most of the marshes of the county are under
the control of gun clubs, who feed the ducks and thus hold them for a time
on the marshes while they are on their migratory flight.
Fine quail shooting is to be had in some parts of Humboldt County, espec-
ially in the Bear River and Mattole sections. lt is but the work of a few
hours for an average hunter to shoot the limit in either of these sections.
However, the quail soon go back into the hills after the opening of the sea-
son and it is quite a tramp to find them. ln the more remote parts of the
county a fortunate hunter may stumble on a covey of mountain quail, These
quail are a good deal larger than the common valley quail and are very swift
in flight. They have beautiful plumage and when mounted are very pretty
For a couple of years past, the vermin, hawks and cold weather has killed
off an unlimited number of young quail and thus checked the sport to some
In the matter of wild pigeons, it has been necessary to stop the shooting
of these girds, for a number of years, as they have been almost exterminated.
These birds formerly came into the county by thousands and in great flocks
but they are now seldom seen.
There are still a number of snipe in the county and fine shooting may be
had in the marshland and valleys. These birds are extremely hard to hit as
they fly in a peculiar twisting fashion, wheeling from one side to the other.
They are a little smaller than a quail and have a beak about three inches long
which makes them look peculiar. They are very fine eating.
Back in the hills, around Briceland and Garberville, is another game bird
called the blue grouse. This bird is about the size of a chicken and is very
peculiar in its habits. In the winter it stays on the ground and lives on acorns
but in the fall it stays on the very top of the tall pine trees, and it is almost

impossible to find it. It gives a peculiar "hoot" that can be heard a long
Several years ago a new kind of game bird was introduced into thecounty.
T his was the Chinese pheasant, As yet no season has been established on

I wish I could write a chronicle of mighty and valiant deeds. But I fear
theres nothing heroic about me. To be truly heroic, I think one must possess
the finest and most admirable qualities. hor instance N aponeon Bonaparte,
who has gained world-wide fame as a fighter, does not appeal to me as much
as the scientists, physicians, explorers, and missionaries who regardless of
personal danger or cost give their lives for the good of humanity.
It is true l have made many wonderful journies on land and sea as well as
in the airg and I have had also many wonderful adventures. But of course
only in the spirit.
As usual I have spent most of my time with my books, because I prefer
books to any other recreation, and it has come upon me of late, what a great
privilege is mine to be acquainted with great men and women, although I have
never met them in the flesh. They give me, however, their greatest and noblest

Sometimes my mother and I enter the fields of poverty, but with the ex-

I was never so disappointed in anything as I was in the Exposition. I sup-
pose it was because l had built up such a beautiful conception of it in my im-
agination, I had expected to see a wonderful city, a veritable fairyland of ini-
pressive palaces perfect in every detail. Instead I saw a great number of barn-
like buildings beautiful enough if viewed from a distance, but coarse and ugly
at close view. In my thoughts I had seen the fountains and statuary as marble,
or a good imitation of it, whereas I found rough casts, some of which had
been marred and broken.
The interior of the buildings was another great disappointment to me. I
had believed that beauty would be on the inside as well as one the outside. In-
stead -if frescoed walls and beautifully domed ceilings there were crude, rough
rafters with no attempt at beauty. A
The Lagoon was not nearly as beautiful as I had thought. Instead of the
beautiful lake I had pictured, there was a shallow pond with reels growing in
it and trees rising in untamed profusion around it. The floats I saw on it
were miserably decorated.
'Yacht Harbor did not come up to my expectations either. Instead of I1
pretty, sheltered cove with sailboats, perhaps with varicolored sails and neat,
trim, little motorboats, etc., I found plain, ordinary rowboats, a dirty canoe
or two, several ugly launches, and nothing elseg no beauty.
If a person got off the main thoroughfares in the Exposition and got back
of some of the buildings, as he was very likely to do, he found trash heaps and
flirty messes all about.
The whole thing reminded me of a painted scene for a show. Of course
one could not expect anything more, but then----

From the first minute that I caught sight of the jewel City, as I crossed
the Bay from Sausalito, I have never regretted that I traveled miles to see it.
There at the foot of rolling hills it lay. The forest covered hills at the
Presidio on one side and the house covered hills of the town on the other
formed a circled background rivaled in beauty only by the rippling water of
the Bay in the foreground.
The Exposition can truly be called a fairyland. Everything was arranged
as naturally as if placed there by the hand of nature.
I think that the thing that impressed me most was the arrangement of the
avenues, the high buildings, the tall trees, then smaller ones, palms and shrubs
and so on down to the flowers and the lawn.
As I saw the color harmony of the towers and courts, I could hardly make
myself believe that those beautiful pillars were not tinted marble but only a
iew boards with a sort of colored plaster over them. The many courts with
:heir fountains, flowers, shrubs, and beautiful statuary, seemed to take me
away from earth and place me in a true fairyland. Especially the Court of the
Universe where the white doves made their homes.
The Tower of Jewels of which I had heard so much, was all I had expected
it to be. Both night and day it glistened like a tower of precious stones.
All the interiors of the buildings were beautiful and beyond description.
For instance the Horticulture Palace with its tropical gardens. Tl1e Palaces
of Machinery, Mines, etc., held inventions and improvements in all the fields
of research. The Food Products Palace held every kind of food that one
could think of. The governmentls display of fish here, was very interesting.
I have heard people say that they were disappointed in the large palaces be-
cause they did not find them with beautiful frescoed ceilings, but instead old
brown rafters. This did not seem to have any affect on me because I realized
that these buildings were not to be permanent structures and that when they
were built it was not with the idea of making them beautiful palaces but sim-
ply providing a place for the various exhibits.
I had for a long time wished to see the best of art and my wish was truly
realized when I saw the Palace of Fine Arts. This permanent structure can
be compared with the architectural classics of Ancient Greece. Here I was
able to see some of the most valuable and noted masterpieces done on canvas
and inbmarble and bronze. The Lagoon which is in front of this building was
at its height of beauty at night when the different colored and draped boats
sailed out upon its smooth surface.
The Country and State buildings were all very well arranged, each truly
representing its own country or state. Almost every one contained a large
map and as I studied these together with the products and pictures I learned
.nore about these countries than I could ever have learned from a book.
The Japanese and Chinese Tea Gardens with their bamboo houses, stone
bridges, shrubs, flowers and fish which had all been brought over from their
far-away home, were unique in design and coloring.
The Zone, although it held some very foolish things, also held some that
were very interesting and instructive. I shall never forget the Panama Canal,
japan Beautiful, and the Tehauntepec village of the Arizona Indians.
Although the wonders of the Exposition have faded from my sight, the
memory of them never can.

A lone, drake mallard followed the coast to the southward. He had been
separated from his band on a northern marsh.
The waves danced in the sunshine and a light breeze flecked the pure white
foam through the air. The big lone mallard was happy in the pure joy of
living as he sailed gracefully over the glistening foam-crested waves, but deep
down in his heart he felt lonely and he wished for some sheltered spot in a
small pond where he and a beautiful young mate might sit and preen their
feathers in the warm sunlight.
The lonely mallard was young and beautiful. He had a glistening green
head and a proud and wary eye. He was large and strong.
Day was nearing its close and the young greenhead was hungry and tired.
He now flew nearer the sandhills in the hope of finding a sheltered marsh
where he could feed and spend the night.
Seeing a large band of sprigs leave the ocean and the sandhills he decided
to follow in their wake. Imagine his joy at seelng a iarge marsh, full of
sequestered ponds, with the friendly marsh-grass waving in the evening
breeze. Still lonely, he called as he flew slowly over the sloughs and ponds,
his bright eye ever on the alert for a resting-place.
As he neared a quiet pond, he heard a low answering call. On the placid
water sat a hen mallard. She was young, beautiful, and she swam gracefully
about on the mirror-like water-proudly yet timidly. '
VVithout a 1noment's delay, the young drake dropped down at her side.
At first she avoided him and swam away. It was then that the young drake
said his first love-words and tried his best to reassure her. The young hen
was very coy-even sad, it seemed to him-as she sat motionless upon the
water, with head drooping and eyes averted.
He swam closer and closer, speaking tender words and bidding her to be
not frightened. He came close to her side and stroked her soft neck with his
bill. She answered him with soft, throaty, love-coos-and in their happiness
at finding each other they forgot all else.
Wliile preening her feathers, he discovered that she had a broken wing.
The sympathetic drake expressed his brief by drooping his head and comfort-
ing her with soft love-words. He vowed to remain with her forever. She
pleaded that he leave her before it be too late-to fly on to the southland, as
the marsh was infested with hunters who would mercilessly kill. For days
she had remained hidden there in the marsh-grass-but each day she ex-
pected would be her last. He must go on and leave her or he too would be
maimed or killed.
But the young drake would not go-so they tucked their heads under
their wings, and beneath the sheltering marsh-grass, slept peacefully side by
side. The clear pond, peaceful and serene in the moonlight, with its sleeping
lovers, was an ideal settirg for a tale of love and sweet content.
Morning came and the sun peeped over the tops of the mountains to the
eastward. The two mallards bathed themselves in the clear water, preened
their feathers, and then commenced their search for breakfast.
They had just finished eating a bunch of celery-grass which the drake
had found, when they heard the sound of footsteps and men's voices. The
rxvo frightened birds hid side by side in the marsh-grass with heads and necks
laid flat to the water. '
The two men passed by, but a small black dog, trotting along behind,
scented them and scared them from their hiding-place. Pitifully the hen
tried to fly, flopping her one wing bravely-but she could not rise from the
water. A shot, and with a cry to her mate, who hovered over her, her pretty
head drooped and she died.
The poor drake, almost bereft of reason, voiced his grief in loud quacks
and vaulted into the heavens, followed by several shots which missed their
Once more a lonely young drake flew sadly over the gleaming waves and

A Sums at Sunriur
Early one September morning, we started for a walk across the fields.
Stopping on top of a rather high knoll, we looked out at the scene before us.
The fog which hung low over the hills began to drift slowly away, looking
like a shimmering, shining, silvery sea.
Far away on the horizon, the sun, a glowing red ball, was slowly rising
over the hills. The sky--the gray of early morning-was beautifully tinted
from the sun's glow, while the hills a bluish mass faintly outlined against
the sky, were brightened by touches of red.
A little way below, could be seen low hills covered with dry grass. Then
a row of stunted green trees stood out to view. Atv the foot of the hills, a
barn with farmhouse nearby, almost hidden by the surrounding orchard. The
barren branches of the orchard trees looked gray and stiff. A thin spiral of
blue smoke, rising high above the little chimney, melted into the pale sky.
My eye now wandered to the left, where the tops of a corn-field could be
seen, waving gently in the breezeg while straight out before me stretched
broad fields of pasture land, in one corner of which a few calves brows-
ing under an old alder tree-lay, lazy and inert-the picture of bucolic con-
tentment. MARY RENNER, ,I7

The Ferndale High School was instituted August, 1904. Before this there
had been a private school. It was suggested that if Ferndale could not sup-
port a school, the adjoining districts might help. So SZSOOEWHS subscribed
by the most interested and liberal citizens. Since the town was to have the
benefit of the school located in its limits, the proposition was brought up
before the voters of Ferndale and eight other school districts. The plan met
with their approval, and it became the Ferndale Union High School.
The old Coombe residence and lot was purchased as it was thought best
not to build for a year. The newly elected trustees selected Prof. C. Dufour
and Mrs. Adams as instructors. They began work with thirty pupils and with
English, History, and Mathematics as the course of study.
The Student Body was organized on the seventeenth of October, under the
name of the Athena Literary and Debating Society. Kenneth Robarts was
the first President, Mary V arley, Vice-President, and Emily Keohan, Secre-
tary. Debates and literary programs were held in connection with their semi-
monthly business meetings.
The next semester the faculty was composed of Mr. Coddington, as prin-
cipal, Mr. Van Horn and Miss Smith. The course of study now included
German and chemistry, and the number of pupils had increased to about forty.
In January, 1906, the Student Body was reorganized with Helen Burbank
as President. The Athletic Association was organized October 5, in connec-
tion with the Student Body.
The success of these two years proved that they were worthy of a new
building. The trustees proposed the bonding of the district for 310,000 to meet
this expense. The work was completed and the building dedicated February
After moving into the new building Physics and classes of higher Mathe-
matics were added there by enabling students to enroll in advance schools or
universities, if they so desired. A piano was purchased and a wooden tennis
court was built.
The first commencement was held in 1908. The next semester the coarse
of study was rearranged. Drawing was added and a more complete apparatus
for chemistry and physics installedg also reference books for the library. Each
year the num-ber of pupils increased. Agricultural work began in 1910. Much
interest was taken in this new work.
In 1912 the present senior class entered as freshmen, forty-five in num-
ber. From the beginning, we made our presence known.
A commercial coarse of bookkeeping and typewriting was added, also
commercial arithmetic the next year. VV e have had Domestic Science during
the two last years and advance work in Latin has been continued. Vocations
was the last addition to the course.
Previously the Tomahawk was published by the Senior Class, until last
vear, when it was decided to choose the staff from the Student Body, thus
securing the interest and co-operation of the whole school.
Athletics have added much to our school life and the following is a calen-
dar of our victories:

The train was hot and stuffy. The smoke from the tunnels hung in the air
and everyone was dusty and dirty. I sat in my seat hunched up, with my head
drooping, svveltering miserably. My window sill was so hot that I couldn't
touch, it so I couldn't even hang out of the window.
Across the aisle slept a huge, fat man. His loud snoring annoyed me
greatly but I did not have enough energy to wake him. He was perspiring
freely and every little while a big bead of sweat would form on his forehead
and slowly trickle do-wn the side of his nose and off his face. At every jolt
of the train the layers of his fat face would shake like jelly.
Ahead of me were a number of silly, chattering school girls. They ate
noisily and rapidly, yet found time to keep up an incessant chatter. VVhenever
the trainboy came through they bought some more provisions.
Behind me was a woman with two children. The brats were the most in-
quisitive persons I had ever seen. They would come up to where I was, look
ut me for a long time, then with many chortles of delight they would see my
satchel, seize it, and start to drag it off. I would stamp my foot and they
would run off howling dejectedly. Their mother would cast venomous
glances at me which would have squelched me at once had I been less leth-
agric. Both of the youngsters were sticky with candy and their aim in life
seemed to be to get the back of my seat so sticky that my hair would catch
on it. ,
Toot! Toot! it
Another of those blooming little stations!
Gradually the train slowed down, till it stopped with an abrupt jerk which
awoke the fat man opposite me. He looked out sleepily at the station,
grunted, and went to sleep again. The two brats rushed pellmell over me to
Q-ree. Gad! I could have beaten them with pleasure.
I looked out grumpily at the station. lt was a brownish, lowlying struc-
ture with two men, the station master and the telegraph operator, standing
in front of it. There had been fifty just like it before and there were probably
fifty more to come.
Turning to the station master the telegraph operator asked curiously,
"Say. what makes those fellows on the train so indifferent looking." A
"I dunno. For effect I guess."
Now, what do you know about that? OLUF RING, '17

Ferndale, Cal., April 8, 1916.
I've been doing a lot of thinking since the last time I wrote, and I've
changed my mind about some things. But don't get alarmed, sit down and
take things easy, and I'll tell you all about it.
The "bunch" decided to go for a week end camping trip. Dick's father
wouldn't let him go unless we took W'alter Thorndale. He said he was a
fine chap, only a little lonesome. That wasn't our idea of him. VVe thought
he was stuck up because he came from a city school. He was always talking
about what they did there, And then too, he was a book worm! But we
knew we'd have to take him, 'cause of course we wouldn't go without Dick.
"Well, we'll show him a thing or two before we're done with himf' we con!-
soled ourselves. After an uneventful journey, we pitched camp CSounds like
Caesar, doesn't itj. I showed Walter where the provisions were, said we were
going to look around for a spring of good water, and told him to straighten
out things for supper. Then we all ran off to look for-well, you know how
much looking, we did. We roamed around and had a good time. Suddenly
we wondered how our new cook was making it. "Bet he burns his finger,
or sets fire to his trousersf' ventured one of the boys. "Oh yes, when we
get back, we'll find him sitting on the ground, nursing his sore finger, and
surrounded by cinders and smoke, the only remains of his once brilliant fire,"
laughed Dick. "Alright, let's go and see," I said, and we started off. But
when we came in sight of camp, we were greeted with, "Here you lazies, hurry
up! I-laven't you rustled up an appetite yet? lim hungry. Come on ll' and
without further ado, VValter sat down and began eating.
We were too dumbfounded at first to speak, and then too ashamed to.
Before us, we saw fried ham and eggs, flapjacks, bread, and coffee. We
sheepishly found places and silently began to eat. VValter paid no attention
to us, but in a minute l asked him how he got everything ready so soon. "Oh
you gave me plenty of time,'l he drawled teasingly. '4Besides, l'm used to
managing camp, as far as the eats are concernedfl "VVell you can manage
ours alright," we all shouted 5 and he did too 5 not merely the eats, but every-
thing after that. We had a lot better time than ever before, and Wlalter was
unanimously chosen our leader.
It didn't wear off as school started again, either. We got to talking one
day, and he said we didnlt seem to take much interest in school affairs.
"W hy, how do you make that out? Didnlt you see us at the game last week,
making more noise than anybody else P" defended Dick. "Oh yes, he said
indifferently. "But that's only the lazy part of school spirit. Anyone can
stand around and cheer while others work, but it takes a man to do things.
Now, instead of you Waiting to come in on the yelling, suppose you do some-
thing, and then you can yell twice as much, if you want to."
We didn't quite agree at first, but finally saw that he was right. He
plays baseball, is on the debating team, and helps in all sorts of school func-
tions, so you see he can't be such a terrible book worm after all. He's a fine
sport, tool After our school had been beaten in baseball, he led them in a
rousing yell for the other side, almost before the game was over. He likes
to see us win, but he likes fair play better, and doesn't stop to crab about
things. He wrote a dandy article for the school paper, a.nd somehow, they
put some other boys name after it. NVe made a great fuss and wanted him
to do something about it. But what do you supoise he said? "VVell, what
difference does it make who wrote it? l'm not trying to make a name for
myself as a writer. It's the school's paper, not mine. It should have all the
credit for it.', That's the way he is about everything. He does the work
and lets the honor take care of itself. I wish we were all like that.
By the way we didnlt win the debate. The substitute did his best, but
naturally he couldnlt win on such short notice. Poor jim can't say things
mean enough about himself. We were just as much to blame as he, but we
know better now, so that's more than winning a debate, I guess. And we
don't make so much noise on the streets, and say rude things about the other
schools when we go to games any more. NValter says the whole school is
judged by what we do then, so we try to be more careful.
Really Tom, we have lots better times than we used to. Itis something
like "a bad dream that made Bill a better boy,', isn't it? But I musn't write
LOLA MCGLAUGHLIN, '16
I am tired of the ceaseless striving,
In a work that never seems done,
Heart-sick of the endless conflict,
In a strife that never seems won.
As I look in the sky at even
At the gleaning stars so bright,
But the thoughts of examination
Bring upon me the gloom of night.
Shall reward for the endless study
Be won when this ex. is done?
Oh! Yes! if a big E. greets me,
I'll surely think 'twas fun.
But you know I am just as likely
To pull down an F., or a P.
Then the sadness of all the age
Settles, black and grim on me!

Grey mists crept in from the sea and dusk came down from the hills and
hung low over the city.
I sat alone in my room in a big, lonesome hotel and looked down at the
hurrying crowds below, wondering where they were all rushing. Some, I
thought, were going to cozy homes and mothers and dads-and Oh! how l
wished I were going home to mine, so far away!
The mists crept in a little closer. The dusk grew a little more dense. Sud--
denly the room seemed to grow cold. ' A
My eyes burned and my throat hurt. In spite of my efforts a big tear
slid from under my lid and down my cheek.
The light on the city hall flashed seven and just as the tear dropped off my

Perhaps the two chief reasons for our losing Girls' Basket Ball Cham-
pionship were these: first the lack of interest shown by the girls, and second
the lack of backing the school gave the team.
When a meeting of all the girls interested in Basket Ball was called in
August, enough for two teams signed up.
VVe decided therefore to have three practice nights a week, but before two
weeks had passed, the girls had narrowed down to about a dozen and most
of these came out only once a week. This made it so discouraging for the
girls that most of them lost interest in the game.
There was no competition between the girls and therefore they did not
try to improve in the game. VVhen the time came for selecting the team,
every girl who had been coming out for the last two weeks had to be put on
the team because there were no others to choose. Une can easily see by this
that there was no selection of players at all.
XVith only ten or twelve girls to practice things were not lively enough, so
because of this the girls began to fool away time instead of practicing hard
when they got on the court 5 nor did they work together sufficiently to make a
good team, for co-operation is absolutely essential if any real team work is
XV hen the games were played off the girls were not given the rooting that
the boys are in their athletics and which so often helps to bring about victory.
Had the rooting section been a little stronger perhaps the Basket Ball team
of 1915 would have been a greater success. The rooters should root espec-
ially for the guards who have to play the most disheartening position in the
game. Had every student been behind the team and done everything he could
to help make it a success, probably the F. U. H. S. would have produced a
Basket Ball team of which they could justly be proud.

"Confound it," exclaimed jack Dalson as he put his hand to his head in
a dazed sort of way. "This fog is the limit. I-Iey, Rex, old pal," as he gripped
the collar of the big shepherd by his side. "Come, we'l1 try again."
Early that morning jack Dalson, taking his gun and dog with him, had
started out from a popular resort for a few days' duck hunting along the
beach. Having poor luck, he thought of going farther up the coast to explore
an old lighthouse, situated on the treacherous Garner Reef, but abandoned
long ago because ships seldom came so close inland.
jack had kept up his search until darkness, when a heavy fog had over-
taken him and he had lost l1is way.
"Good Rex-we've covered quite a bit of ground since our last stop, but
where we're going is more than I know. I can hear the surf pretty plainly,
so we must have come right up the beach. Hard telling what we'll run up
as-Holy Smokelv he exclaimed as he fell amongst a pile of shingles. "Must
be in somebody's back yard. Ah! I have it, Rex, the old light-
house, our humble refuge for the night-the way things are at present. VV'on-
der where it is P" jack slowly rose to his feet, brushing the dirt from his
clothes. "If you hear some creaking timbers, Rex, just remember that I've
bumped against the lighthouse and itis gone tumbling into the salty brine."
The dog lifted his head knowingly and barked.
"Glad you understandf' remarked Jack, smiling. Well, at it again."
I-Ie picked his way slowly out of the pile of shingles and started off with the
dog following at his heels.
The dull thud of the breakers pounding on the beach could now be heard
distinctly. Not a star or ray of light penetrated the thick fog.
They were enveloped in a gray emptiness. "Pretty tough, isn't it, Rex?
But keep it up, we'll land some place, this fog makes a fellow feel as if he
were in a little world all by himself, and yet everything seems so near that
you're kind of scared of bumping into something. Sort of a puzzle !" Jack
slowly groped his way along with his hands stretched before him, trying to
avoid hitting against anything, while the dog trotted slowly by his side
whining now and then as if he knew something were wrong.
Suddenly a long low whistle broke the stillness of the night, a mournful
sound seeming at first to come right from the beach, but as the sound con-
tinued' it became fainter and fainter until it died away. Then again with
startling suddenness louder than before--the low mournful sound of the fog
horn of an ocean steamer.
!'Great Guns, Rex! A steamer, and near the reef! Where on earth can
that lighthouse be!" exclaimed Jack nervously. I-Ie started running up the
beach, not knowing where, but he knew it was up to him to save that ship.
"Come, Rex-keep it up. VVe'll have to do something. Iill-Ouch! Con-
found it! I got it then alright-must have struck an iron rod." Jack
clutched wildly for the object and his hand closed over a big beam. Mean-
while the steamer seemed to be getting nearer and nearer as the sound of
the horn boomed louder than before.
"Rex, oh Rex, where are you ?"
The dog crouched, trembling, close to his master's heels, frightened by the
incessant noise of the horn. "Good boy, Rex, we'll get there yet."
Carefully guiding himself by walking close to the beam, jack reached
what he believed to be a small shed.
Walking half way around this, he stumbled upon an old dilapitated walk
and fell heavily.
"1'm in for it now," he muttered between white lips. That bloomin' ankle
of mine, I am afraid I'll just have to give up."
Again that low whistle! It sounded nearly human in its cry for help.
"It's nearer, old boy-nearer," muttered Jack in a strained voice. "It
won't be long before she'll strike. To think I can't--Rex! Rex! a light!"
exclaimed jack shrilly. "Thank Heavens !"
The boy lay back on the walk trembling with emotion.
"I found yer that time alright--I didf' exclaimed a rough looking fellow,
gazing joyfully at an old pipe he held in his hand. "You durn thing, but
when a fellow canlt sleep wid a Fourth of july celebration ringin' in his ears,
yause a mighty good friend to havef'
The tramp, for such he was, settled himself comfortably amongst a pile
ot sacks in a corner of the small tower.
"Wonder where the parades a goin'? Seems to be leavin'. Well I ain't
a-hankering after no noises nohow. Guess Iill smoke awhile, then have a
snooze if de fire whistles quit shootin'."
"Rex, she's saved! The light was just in time. Listen!"
A faint noise was heard like the moaning of the wind, then gradually it
clied away leaving nothing but the roar of the surf to break the stillness.
"That's her old boy, safe! Thank goodness! Ouch, say but I gave my
ankle a turn. Wonder who did the good work. I'll have to have help to get
out of here, might as well try to raise someone, hey? I feel rather queer after
so much excitement 3 kind of shaky, you know."
Jack, with a good many "ouches" and "Confound its" managed to sit
upon the walk, then, putting his hands to his mouth he shouted with all his
might, "Ahoy there! help!
"Well, Illl be bloom busted !" the tramp awoke with a start.
"VVho under the sun!" He arose, yawned, stretched, then calmly walked
to a small window in the back of the tower and looked out. Emptiness, empti-
ness, everywhere! Not a single object in sight. Again he heard the cry of
"Well be jabers, how can I help, ye's when I donlt know where ye's be,"
"Here, down here on the walkli' yelled Jack, "and with a twisted foot,
"XVell, and what does yels do that fer ?" exclaimed the tramp.
"Ah, come on and help me, can't you P" pleaded Jack earnestly.
"Sure, in a jiffyf' The tramp indulged in another yawn then turned and
stumbled to a steep stairway leading down to a large gloomy room under the
On reaching the bottom of the strairs he lighted a few matches and saw
jack not five feet away from the door of the room, sitting on the walk.
"Oh! there ye air V' he exclaimed, peering into jacks face, "and yer ankle
"Yes," answered jack, "and badly, too. You've been up in the tower,
haven't you ?"
"Uh, uh, asleep when the ding busted tune wasn't playin'."
"NVhy didn't you light the lamp sooner ?" inquired jack wonderingly.
The tramp grinned. "Because I didn't want to smoke my pipe any
"VVhy, what in the world has the lighting of the lamp to do with smoking
your pipe P" questioned the boy perplexedly.
"It's just this way'l+began the tramp. "I lost me pipe up in the tower
and I couldn't find it high nor low and I thought how's if I had more light
on the subject, perhaps as how I could find it, so I finds me way to the light
up there and finally gets it lighted. I didn't ,spect to find any juice," he
added, "but there was quite a bit."
"I hope you found your pipe," said jack smiling.
"You bet I did,', replied the tramp, nodding. "lt was under an old sack
up there." '
"Say, do you know, you lit that lamp just in time to save that ship ?" asked
"S'hip! So that's what that noise like a New Year's Eve was P"
"It certainly was," jack assured him.
"Well-I'll be hangedf' exclaimed the tramp.
"Come give me a lift now, will you?" asked the boy.
Sure, Mike-jest one minute 'till I get me pipe in me hind pocket. All
ready now, here we go."
The two made their way up the steep stairs slowly and carefully, stopping
now and then to allow jack to rest, for he was weak from pain.
"Well, here we air-me, the dog, and you," said the tramp, letting jack
down easily on the sacks. "I guess I'll put out the lights and commence with
me dreams where I left off, if yeyve no objections!"
He soon lay down beside the boy and in a short while was sound asleep.
jack lay awake until the first faint streaks of dawn began to appear on the
horizon, then he too, fell asleep ......

been found by a searching party and taken back to the resort, read the morn-
ing after the adventure.

Casein is a by-product of milk, and has no food value. It has, however,
a great commercial value. It is made, generally, by one of two processes,
known as the acid souring process and the self-souring process. The acid
souring is most extensively used, so let us consider it first.
The whole milk is brought by the dairymen throughout the country to the
factories where it is skimmed. The skim milk is then placed in a vat and
heated with steam to a temperature of 120 degrees F. It is then precipitated
with sulphuric acid, which causes the temperature to rise to about 180 degrees
le". The albumen and milk sugar remaining in solution in the whey, and can
be drawn off leaving the casein. Cold water is then added, to the extent of
about one-half the volume of skim milk that was in the vat, to cool the casein
and wash out all whey that happens to remain in the vat. ' WVhen thoroughly
cooled and washed the casein is placed in a press and a good deal of water
is squeezed out. Now the casein leaves the press and goes to a curd mill
where it is ground into flakes resembling rolled oats. The flakes are placed
in thin layers on screens and put in a big long narrow chamber called a tun-
nel. It has an opening at one end for moisture-laden air to escape. and an-
other at the other end through which hot air is blown. VVhen the casein
comes from the tunnel it is very dry and brittle and is taken to another curd
mill and ground again. This time when it comes out, it is about as fine as
cornmeal. Now it is placed in bags of Ioo pounds each 5 ready for the mar-
The self-souring process is similar to the acid souring process. Sour
milk is added to the vat of sweet skim milk and held at a temperature of Ioo
degrees F., until all the milk becomes curdled, when the casein sinks to the
bottom and then is drawn off. The rest of the self-souring process is the
same as the acid souring process.
Casein is used in the manufacturing of various articles such as buttons,
combs, knife handles, etc., but more of it is used in coating paper than in
any other way.
In the past years much casein has been imported from foreign countries,
the best of which came from France. However, the European Vlfar has shut
off all this foreign supply, but we are still able to get it from Argentine Re-
Owing to the inaccessibility of casein in the ,past two years, the price of
casein has been raised to several times its normal figure, but the United
States has now doubled and redoubled its output so that the price is on its
way back to the normal standard again.

"Humboldt" is a word that conveys terror to nearly every Chinaman in
California. Since the great Chinese Riot of 1885, never have any of these
people been allowed within the boundaries of Humboldt, and the fame ol the
count y has spread over nearly the whole state.
For several days a tong war had been going on between two religions
or clans in the City of Eureka. There had been shooting, and knife fighting
until the city authorities had arrested several of the leaders, and placed tl-em
C511 the evening of February thirteenth, 1885, the fighting broke out again
fiercer than ever. As a prominent citizen of Eureka by the name of David
Kendall, was leaving his office on "F" street he was shot, and killed, by a
bullet from the Chinese fight. Another man who was on the street was
Feeling was naturally against the Chinaman, and this was all that was
needed to bring the people to action. An indignant meeting of the citizens
was called, and after some discussion it was decided to give the Chinainen
tw enty-four hours to leave the city.
The Chinese were informed of this, and word was sent to all places out-
side of lggureka, where Chinese were employed. Men were sent to guard all
trails, and roads leading from Eureka, while a gallows was erected in the
middle of "Third" street between "E" and "F,l' in order to impress it upon
the nun-'ls of the Malay that there was to be no objection about going.
5, Thus terrified, the Chinese began to gather onto the boat that was wait--
ing to take them to San Francisco.
They came singly, and in groups, willingly, and objecting, and with men
forcing them. They were herded on board the steamer like sheep, and made
to stay there.
While this act was unlawful on the part of the citizens, the Chinamen
deemed it safest to give this section of California a wide berth, and therefore
have never troubled the inhabitants of the county from that day to this.

lT VVAS EARLY morning and but few were
. stiring in a little village of southern France.
, An old man, pushing a two-wheeled cart,
T' stopped in the narow street in front of the
l chateau. At his side was a large, short-eared,
, brown dog.
l The door of the chateau opened and a sad-
ly faced woman appeared in the door-way. The
1 dog wagged his bushy tail and ran to her side.
yi - I "Any news from Jacques, my father ?'l ask-
Y' ed the woman, stooping to pet the dog beside
V X, her. V
il' 4' "None,'l replied the old man. He lifted
i tix a l from the cart a large, earthen jar of milk, hand'
' 4 U Q 1' , xx ed it to the woman, and was given another Jar
ax s J T X "Neither have I any from Pierre or the
if X fi lads. But we trust in the good God that they
' fkx X still live to fight for France."
li X "For France," murmered the old man.
lg I a yt The woman stepped inside and softly shut
M 'I t'fe door behind her. The old man, followed by
' N X the dog, continued on his way down the street,
, V i stopping at every door to deliver his milk.
I, 5 . Then, at the crossing just beyond the
i ,,,,, i chateau, there swung into view the tail figure of
a handsome young soldier, dressed in the uni-
W ' form of an inferior officer. He was very young
,A 9 scarcely past twenty, and the tight fitting,
---1 -f ' bright blue coat revealed a broad, full chest,
broad shoulders, and an athletic body. His dark brown eyes sparkled beneath
the shiny black vizor of his cap, and on his lips played a bright smile of satis-
faction and pride. He was proud, for, had he not, that very morning, re-
ceived his new uniform of a lieutenant of dragoons and was he not, within
an hour, going to board the troop train for the front, to fight for his beloved
As he approached the chateau, the door was flung open and the fluffy
figure of a girl came out like a butterfly to meet him. Two strong arms'
caught and lifted her from the ground, and a boyish mouth imprinted a kiss
upon her white cheek.
But the girl's bosom heaved with a great sigh, and her head dropped upon
the shoulder of the young man, while she sobbed softly. The young soldier
lifted her head, and kissing away her tears, murmured, "Jacqueline, my dear!
Do you not see my new uniform? Till wager you did'nt recognize your Lieu-
tenant Ramon Le Beau when you saw him striding down the street. Our
train is due at the Gare du Nord in forty minutesf'
Jacqueline threw back her head, and with a forced smile, dashed the tears
from her eyes. The two disappeared through the doorway and the door
creaked shut behind them.
The little village was beginning to stir. A peasant apeared at the crossing
-.lriving a flock of geese before him. Down the road came two girls, hand in
hand, their white faces turned toward the railroad station. Wfithin the next
thirty minutes, the streets filled with people, most of them going toward the
little station at the end of the street. Men in uniforms were everywhere, they
tnronged about the door of the chateau and lingered at the crossings. Always
they were acompanied by sad-faced women who showed but littte sign of the
great sacrifices they were making.
Suddenly the crowd at the end of the street cheered g up the narrow street
from the barracks came a body of recruits singing the "Marseillaise." It was
a regiment of Alpine Chasseurs, seasoned soldiers, looking efficient in their
tam-o-shanter caps, their neat, dark blue blouses, their knicker-brockers and
The crowd followed down the street to the station, and in a short while,
the road was empty except for a small knot of people gathered at the cross
Presently the door of the chateau swung open and Jacqueline and Lieuten-
ant La Beau descended to the street, walking proudly hand in hand toward
As they crosed the tracks beside the small structure, the crowd that lined
the rails cheered, and from below, an answering cheer struggled upward
above the din of a locomotive climbing up the incline from the little valley
below. They made their way through the crowd along the rails. A panting
troop train rolled up and came to a stop beside the station. At the windows
appeared the blue coats and red caps of the boys who were going North.
Another cheer went up from the crowd and was answered from within.
Ramon and Jacqueline stood for a moment upon the graveliy walk beside
the locomotive. Then, with a whispered adieu and a press of her hand, he
was gone. .
She watched the train until it passed out of sight down the valley, then
turned and slowly made her way down the street to the door of the ancient
red sandstone church. She entered softly. In the shadow of the great arches
were many women, black-gowned and black-veiled kneeling before the statute
of Mary. There was not a movement in the still chapel and the sanctuary
Lump flickered in the dim light which came softly through the stained glass
windows. Jacqueline softly made her way to the alter rail and knelt, her
pale face and soft hair'touched gently by the subdued light.
The allied troops sturdily truged along the muddy road in front of the
City of Ypres. The thunder of cannon was in their ears and all about them
was the wreckage of war. The road was lined with small hewn crosses. On
one side of the French marched a regiment of hugh brown Turcos, and on
the other several companies of khaki clad British trudged sturdily.
Darkness was falling, and the low, red streaks from the German guns
flashed like lightning across the dark sky.
At last the trenches were reached, and the weary soldiers descended into
the muddy lanes.
Then suddenly there broke over their heads, one of the German mag-
nesium flares, which the French call fusees 3 a bright rocket burst silently over
them, and for almost a minute, the glare hung low in the air brightly illumin-
ating the entire landscape. All through the night these fusees went up
steadily, shining on ammunition trains, and revealing to the enemy the move--
snent of troops behind the trenches.
The dawn began to break, and in the pale light, the troops of the allies
awaited the command to charge.
Many thoughts crowded into the weary mind of Lieutenant Le Beau, as
he stood ankle deep in slush, with body alert for the terrible ordeal. He
thought of sad faced Jacqueline, as he left her standing in the station door.
He saw her standing in the door of the chateau, her dreamy eyes fixed upon
the low hills in the north. He thought of his invalied mother, of his widowed
sister, and of the fatherless children upon her doorstep.
Then his thoughts turned to those others, the men whom he called his
enemies, in their trenches only a few yards across the wasted stretch of land.
They, too, were leaving everything near and dear to them. VVhat was it all
about, he asked himself. Why was he here? NVhy should he shoot these
men? They, who were as ignorant of the real cause as was he, then the awful
truth of the whole afair dawned upon him g he was a murderer! His trembl-
ing fingures clutched tightly his rifle barrel and he shifted uneasily.
The command came. The Turcos, in the front ranks, burst out and
bounded fearlessly toward the guns of the enemy. Lieutenant Le Beau, run-
ning unsteadily, urged on his men, the flashes of the guns pierced the soft
morning lightg he saw dimly, men falling all around him, the noise of rifles,
machine guns and artillery drowned their groans and curses.
He saw a body of Teutons advancing with a flag. Their gray-green
uniforms were splashed with blood and they were singing although some of
them fell at every step.
A wild desire to seize their flag came over himg he rushed madly toward
the group, his men following. At that moment, he was conscious of an up-
lifted saber and the next instant, he lay beneath their feet groaning piteously,
his life blood flowing freely from his wounded cheek. Then chaos filled his
mind, and he remembered no more.
Gray dawn in the little village. Jacqueline seated upon the broad stone
bench in front of the chateau, her large brown eyes fixed intently upon the
farther end of the street, anxiously awaited the approach of the morning
postman. The first rays of the early morning sun fell over her hair, touched
her pale cheek, and played softly upon her slender white hands.
Thus had she waited, dry-eyed and calm, each morning and evening for
two long sad monthsg living with the knowledge of the danger to which her
lieutenant was exposed, yet her dark eyes betrayed nothing but a calm yearn-
ing. Life held only the one hope to know that he lived, then she was ready
to bear in the bravest way whatever might come.
The postman arrived. He was an old man, bent with age and bearing
upon his shoulders the weight of a great mail sack. VVith trembling hands
Jacqueline seized the letter which he held out to her and touched it with
quivering lips. It was directed in Le l3eau's handwriting to Albert Lavoisier,
Jacqueline's step-father, and the owner of the chateau.
At that moment, Lavoisier himself appeared at the door behind her.
Turning, she placed the letter in his hands, and fixed her sad, expressive gaze
rpon the elder man, intently watching his face as he broke the seal, drew out
the contents, and began slowly to read.
As he read, his jaws tightened, and into his eyes, which now moved more
quickly, flashed an expression of grief, mingled with pity. Scarcely had he
finished reading, when Jacqueline seized his arm, and with deep emotion,
implored him to give her the letter.
"Father! Oh, My Father! Ramon is wounded! Let me read! let me go
to him! He won't die! he wonltl Tell me he wonlt!"
Lavoiser was naturally soft hearted. He tried to tell her the contents of
ghe letter, but, realizing how intensely the girl was suffering, words failed
him, and, sighing deeply, he handed her the letter. As he did so, he gently
caressed her hair and said:
"It's hard, little one, but it's-it's for France, you know." Then he turned
and softly entered the door, leaving her alone with her grief.
She did not weep, but stood beside the door, white as wax, her beautiful
eyes dim and misty, and her fluffy brown hair turned by the warm rays of
the morning sun to a golden as she read the message:
Field Hospital, La Panne, Belgium.
This will be my last letter and I address it to you because you will under-
stand me better than would poor little Jacqueline. I wish you to explain to
her, as gently as possible, the reason why we can never meet again. If she
asks for my address, do not give it to her. She would only send me a long
tear-stained letter which would rend my heart with grief.
My regiment took part in the opening of the terrific battle of Ypres,
which is still raging. I was badly wounded and two days later I regained full
consciousness in this hospital. The first thing l was told was what I wished
the least to hear-that I would not die-yet. I would live on, my friend,
with half of my face cut away. A saber stroke had made one big warped
scar of the once handsome features of dashing Lieutenant Le Beau. You
understand now why I am so anxious to release Jacqueline from ner engage-
ment. Tell her all about it.
It is all very well for people to say that wounds received in battle are to
be valued higher than medals, and that a soldier should glory in his scars.
But only once have I dared to gaze at my hideously distorted face in a look-
ing glass which a nurse held over me. That was enough. Jacqueline must
never see me thus. She must remember her lieutenant as he looked at our
last parting. Please do not write, for it will only make me suffer the more.
In a few weeks I will be off again to battle, whether for new wounds or for
medals, matters little. Your sad one,
' RAMON LE BEAU, Lieutenant of Dragoons.
lt was just before sundown in the Belgian village of La Panne The hos-
pital nuns had gone upstairs to their little chapel of evening services. Through
an open window, just above the door of the hospital, sounded their voices, in
reply to the Latin phrases of the priest. The building faced an open square'
bordered on one side by shuttered houses and on another by a row of villas,
beyond which stretched the shirting dunes, and, still farther on, the sea. To
the north and east constantly sounded the guns of Nieuport and Dixmude,
While their low, red flashes were easily seen along the sandy beach. A search-
light from an English bunboat, close inshore, played over the landscape.
Ambulances were constantly arriving with their ghastly loads of broken and
Twilight had deepened into night. Down the gloomy street appeared a
scrubby grey pony, carrying the drooping figure of a young girl, her long,
dark cloak hanging over its back. Slowly they came with weary, halting
steps to the hospital door.
The girl dismounted and patting the shaggy neck of the pony, sighed and
whispered: "Poor little Babette, my faithful little friend! Tm going to him
now, and I'll never let him go again." Turning quickly, she entered the
hospital door, as the faithful pony, wearied with the long journey, fell to
its side and lay panting in the cobbled gutter.
The warm light of the April day, falling softly through the high windows,
had faded into twilight g the lamps in the great room were now lighted,
nurses, clad in their white uniforms, moved softly among the beds, adminis-
tering to the wounded, whose faces showed pale in the flickering lamp light.
Some lay quietly, their grey faces and dull, bloodshot eyes turned blankly to!
ward the ceiling. All was still, except for an occasional moan in a distant
On a cot, beneath one of the great windows, lay the wasted form of
Lieutenant Le Beau, his cheek pale and sunken and his dark eyes filled with
an unutterable longing.
Sick of war, he was yearning for his home and for a last look upon the
faces dear to him. He longed for the soft touch of Jacqueline's tender hands
in his, to hear once more her happy laugh, and to watch the sunlight play
over her dark hair, before he should go once more to battle, and' as he hoped,
to death. He saw Jacqueline as if in a dreamt her gentle head was bowed,
and she was sobbing. At that moment he was conscious of a sound beside
him, and a tender voice was whispering his name.
The vision flittedg he turned his head, and there beside him stood Jae-
queline. He tried to turn his face from her so that she might not see his
horrible scar, but she sank to her knees beside him, and carressing his hair,
covered his face with kisses. ,
The guns of Nieuport and Dixmude had ceased their thunderg the quiet
night had comeg no more noise in the hospital room, save the deep breathing
of patients or the low groans of wounded men. Outside, millions of twink-
ling stars studded the blue sky. The soft winds, drifting over the channel,
brought the calm of late evening, and into the hearts of the lovers stole a
deep and lasting peace.

terial that should be handed in for the "Tomahawk." A prize of three dollars
was offered for each one of the following: for the best story, for the best
poem, for the best article: for the best cut g for the best cartoon. As a resulf
the members of the Student Body have contributed generously, and after
much consideration the judges, Mrs. A. E. Varley, Mr. H. N. Briggs and
Miss Mildred Smith, have awarded the following prizes: for the best story,
Coleman Scott, for the best article, Lola McGlaughlin, for the best cut, Zoe
Kelsey, for the best cartoon, Linus Hicks.
The question as to whether you are gaining by sending your boy or girl to
high school has arisen many times. Many people will say that a grammar
school education is sufficient to bring an average citizen to proper maturity,
but we believe that a high school course is necessary for the proper develop-
ment of the mind and for the preparation of the individual to take his place in
the future affairs of the nation. Do you wish your children to become com-
petent and efficient citizens? Most assuredly you dog then you must send
them to high school, for without a high school education they cannot reach
that height of efficiency which is necessary for the highest type of citizenship.
Every right-thinking high school student realizes this. It is here he develops
the ability to think logically, and to reason for himself, above all he learns
10 rely upon his own resources g to stand upon his own feet.
VVithout the power which comes from even an elementary knowledge of
Mathematics, of Chemistry, of the results of years of Physical research, of the
English language, of Latin, of History, of the beauty of literature which
broadens the mind and furnishes lofty ideals, of a knowledge of the mighty
words of Shakespeare, of Scott, Tennyson, Byron, Emerson, Longfellow, and
scores of other literary masters whose pens have moved the world--without
all this, he cannot truly be said to have received his share of the good things
lrVe see very little of those who support our school. It would encourage
us a great deal to know that you are interested in our work. Many of you
who censure have never visited us to see what we are doing. W'e ask you not
to criticize until you have visited us and examined our work. Then if there
i s anything that you believe could be improved upon, offer your suggestion-
hut don't knock.
In closing we wish to thank, in behalf of the Student Body, all those' who
have aided and supported the school during the last ten months. We also
wish to congratulate the school upon all its successes during the year. May
they continue in years to come, and may each year prove as successful as this
one has been.

VVe wish to thank all of the schools that have sent us their paper and hope
that our suggestions will be received with good feelings and that they will
help to improve the future issues. We should like to have criticism and com-
:nents from other schools on our own paper and will be glad to hear from you
all again next year.
Acta: Exeter.-VVe like to see that you have plenty of social affairs in
your school. Wie might suggest that a few more cuts would improve your
paper. Your pictures could be clearer.
Advance: Arcata.-Art Department is good. Vtfe would suggest that it
might have a more attractive cover. Joke Department is weak.
Azalea: Sebastopol.-Especially strong Literary Department. Pictures
are good and we like th eway they are put in. A neat little paper.
Caduceus: Chico.-Your annual is rather out of the ordinary style. XVC
like your heavy type for the names of the Exchanges in the write-up of them.
Your poems are interesting.
Carquines: John Swett H. S.-An attractive little paper but we would
suggest that you strengthen your Literary Department. Une story is hardly
Sopa de Oro: Fillmore.--A splendid paper, especially strong in pictures.
One of the stories we are sorry to notice, "Attacked By Nlfolvesf' is slightly
reminiscent of one we have read in the "Youth's Companion'
Copa de Oro: Fillmore.-A splendid paper, especially strong in pictures.
sign is very attractive. NVe like the idea of having the little cut of the school
at the top of each page.
Dawn: Esparto. Commencement No and Exposition No.-Lacking in
cuts, pictures, and jokes. The paper that you use should be of better quality.
fx small school like yours should put out only one paper a year. It is better
to publish one good paper than two that are not so good. We do not like the
way your class flower is worked in with your picture. The result is not
El Caribe: Central High School. San juan, Porto Rico.-We are very
sorry to say that our inability to read Spanish prevents our enjoying your
exceedingly interesting looking paper. VVe hope sometime to be studying
Spanish, so please continue to send your annual.
El Rodeo: Merced.-Your Literary Department is exceptionally good, but
your paper would be more interesting if it had some more cuts.
The Kent Hill Breeze.-A neat little paper but it is in need of cuts.
La Brisa: Long Beach.-Has some interesting stories. We think the
paraphrase of Kiplingls "On the Future" is not in the best of taste, so beauti-
ful a poem should not be thus spoiled. .
Nladrona: Palo Alto. October No.-W'hy not give "In Men1orium" a
whole page? A few more cuts would add greatly to your paper.
Megaphone: Fortuna.-You have a well arranged paper with an attractive
cover design. Your Literary Department would be greatly improved if you
had some more interesting stories.
Napanee: Napa.-Literary Department is good. The way debating is
written up shows that the students take great interest in it. A few more
pictures would make the paper more interesting, however.
Occident: University of California.-W e hardly feel capable of com-
menting upon so superior a paper, but can say that we enjoy itg although the
long poems are a little beyond us. .
Oracle: Bakersfield.-Your Literary Department is good. W'e like the
way the cuts are put in, especially the one with the class flower. NVe would
suggest that you put the name of the school in a conspicuous place--either on
the cover or on the first page. We are obliged to hunt half through the
book to find out that it came from Bakersfield. In looking through the jokes
we found that you had copied all the best ones that were in our last yearys
paper. Better not have any jokes at all than do this.
Orange and Black: Latrobe, Penn. Thanksgiving No.-Your paper is
well arranged and has a fine Literary Department, but is lacking in cuts and
Owl: F resno.-Your cover design is not attractive. More pictures would
help to make this annual more interesting.
Purple and VVhite: Madera.-VVe wish to congratulate the editors upon
rhis paper. It is an especially good one, in every department. Strong espec-
ially in jokes. The unique way in which the class notes are written makes
the paper unusually interesting.
Redwood Chips. Del Norte H. S.-VVe do not Wish to be unkind, but
we would suggest that your publication would be much more attractive were
it printed on better paper. Your pictures are not clear. Some of your stories
are good, however, and your joke Department is commendable.
Review: Sacramento. Oct. No.-It is small but interesting. Your cover
design could be greatly improved and more pictures would help to improve
the looks of the paper as a whole.
Sequoia: Eureka.-A very good paper. Especially in the arrangement of
Spectator: Cloverdale.-An excellent paper for so small a school, but
would be improved by a few more cuts.
Tiger: San Francisco.-Your Exposition Number is especially attractive.
We like the way you have carried the idea throughout.
Tocsin: Santa Clara.-VV e like the unique way in which the class history
is told. We would suggest that you keep your jokes and advertisements in
separate departments. The drawings are especially appropriate, but we wish
there were more.
Tokay: Lodi.-Your school can be proud of putting out such a splendid
paper. The literary department is exceedingly good. "Sonnets on America"
worthy of special mention. The pictures and cuts are good. You might
have a few more jokes. The paper as a whole shows good spirit throughout

The last rays of the setting sun had slowly faded from the sky as 1 strolled
into the garden. Twilight was deepening. The little birds had stopped their
happy singing and twittering, and, tucking their heads under their wings,
had gone to sleep.
Slowly the moon rose clear and bright over the garden.
The gentle night wind whispered softly to the sleeping flowers and gently
stirred the leaves on the tall trees, then all was still again.

Place-High School Steps.
Characters-Two High School Girls.
Theme-The High School Play.
"VVasn't it just too grand for anything? I thought Edna was perfectly
lovely. She carried her part like an experienced actress. Don't you think so ?"
'6She certainly did, and didn't Vic. make a sweet wife? l thought she
was perfectly at home on the stage, and if Erla had not been disguised, I be-
lieve we would all have taken her for a real diamond thief-she acted so
natural. Hasn't she got grandeur though ?"
"Yes indeed, and the way Ethel pulled off her old fashioned songs. I
thought she was too good for anything. You remember she had us laugh-
ing all the time, and Coleman looked just like a man whose wife had gone
back on him. Didn't he act as if he were furious though? Gee, how he did
handle Cyril. Did you notice Francis? He reminded me of one of these
English Reggies one sees on the street corner with a cane under his arm:
He was certainly there at making love. Didn't Cyril handle his part finei
though? My, but 'he looked funny with those goggles on. I thought he
was dandy, didn't you ?"
"You bet I did, but say didn't Leland frighten you the way he came out
with those big whiskers and guns? I never thought he could talk so mean.
I honestly was scared the way he handled those revolvers. He ought to be
sheriff of this county. I-Ie certainly could make things lively with Harold
and Luther to help him. Didnlt they throw Francis around beautifully? It
didn't take them long to make him put up his hands, did it? Let's go in andy
congratulate Miss Rouark. She certainly deserves praise for her great
work in coaching the high school's most successful play."
"She certainly does, but there goes the bellg anyway they were all just
fine-every one of them."

Max Juniper and wife of the Tau Cross Ranch, Texas, have the gover-
norls daughter to visit. Mrs. Juniper is afraid her husband does not love her
so she and Jean, the governor's daughter, write a love letter to an imaginary
Ted to arouse Max's love. Mr. VVilling, a neighbor, comes to court Miss
lean. During their absence, when they go to look at his new horse, two
tourists come, their car having broken down. The hired girl at the ranch
house, Texana Gump, goes to find her mistress, and the others, all except
Jean and Vic, go to get tools for repairing the car. Jean believes the tourists
to be a runaway couple. Texana sees some men coming and they are dis-
covered to be the sheriff and his deputies who are after two runaway tourists,
whom he believes to be diamond robbers. jean succeeds in hiding Vic in her
room and nailing the sheriff and his deputies in the cellar. Mrs. Juniper and
the others return, and finding the sheriff and his men safe in the cellar, go
off to the ranch house. Meanwhile the sheriff arrests Texana and Alonzo,
believing them to be the robbers. He then waits to get Jean for locking him
in the cellar. The tourists return to get the girlls bag of jewels which the
sheriff declares they have stolen. The girl discovers the letter written to
"Ted' which is the name of the man she has just married and is running
away with. She is very angry and when Max juniper returns she tells him
that "this man is trying to elope with your wife." Max beats Ted up and
throws him at his wife's feet, believing her unfaithful. jean tells the sheriff
of his mistake in arresting the hired girl and Mr. Williiig and the sheriff
starts after the tourists who have just escaped. He soon returns with them,
The tourists are not robbers at all. The woman is a writer of detective
fiction and wanted a situation for a new story.

An Autumn illllnrning
October had come, and with it, Jack Frost, who, during the night, had
painted beautiful pictures on the windows and dressed the fields in a sparkling
'nantle of white.
The early morning sun looked like a red ball of fire shining through the
haze, and the air was crisp and cool. The leaves on the trees were red, while
yellow and brown ones were strewn on the ground. A little brook flowed
quietly through the trees carrying leaves and twigs along on its smooth snr-
face. Everything was quiet save for the warble of a distant blue jay.

The Upper Classes and the faculty of the F. U. H. S., on Friday evening,
August twenty-seventh, entertained the members of the Class of '19, the
initiation of the latter being one of the features of the evening. A program
consisting of the following number was given:
japanese Song ........................................
Miss Edna Lund, assisted by a chorus of girls in japanese costumes
Chinese Reading ........................................ Arden Ring
Piano Duet, Chopsticks ........ Misses Gladys Bugbee and Elise Broderson
The reception hall was prettily decorated with red dalias and Japanese
lanterns. Many parents were present and the evening was much enjoyed by
The Upper Classes gave a dance in honor of the Freshmen on October
third. The Hall was decorated with strings of maple leaves extending from
the center to the corners. Ice cream was sold by the juniors upstairs in the
drawing-room. Everyone reported an enjoyable time.
On Saturday, November thirteenth, the Domestic Science Class served the
Basketball and Football teams of Arcata and Ferndale High Schools with a
dinner at the High School Building. Much credit is due to the Domestic
Science girls and to Miss Moser for the fine way in which everything was car--
ried off. In the evening, after the recital by Miss Jane Egremont Farley, the
Student Body gave a dance in honor of the visiting teams. The Hall had
been tastefully decorated for the occasion. Music was furnished by Spencer?
Orchestra. Everyone enjoyed the punch.
Immediately after the Boys' Basketball Game. Saturday night, February
fifth, was over, a dance was given for the visiting Fortuna team. The dance
broke up at twelve and everyone reported a fine time. Music was furnished
by H. Winslow, D. Fletcher and Miss Mildred Smith.
A pleasure much looked forward to is the School Picnic. The students
are all longing for the breezy joy-ride to Strong's Station, the swimming.
the recreation, appetizing picnic-dinner, and last of all, another delightful
joy-ride home. Seventy-seven students are going, the largest number that
has ever gone to a school picnic.

"Hello, Donna, busy?"
"No n,ot at all, Babs,-come in and sit down. I was just cleaning all of
these notes out of my writing desk. Isnt it queer how a person will keep
them? Now, for instance, herels one dated August 2nd. Why that was the
day school opened, wasn't it? Those poor little Freshies. Didnlt they look'
scared! Twenty-four of them and all huddled together like a bunch of
"Why I thought there were twenty-seven."
"Oh yes, there are now. You see three came in later. 'Do sit down, Babs,
here by me on the couch-there, that's better! W'asn't it grand that we could
go back to school and have the same faculty? I think that's one big reason
that we all were so enthusiastic about our work and settled down so quickly.
I-Iere's another note dated August I3lZl'1-the day of our first Student Body
meeting, when the new officers first took charge. Their names are written
.lown here. I'll read them :-Coleman Scott, President, Albert Martin, Vice-
Presidentg Ethel Ericksen, Secretary, Cyril Collins, Treasurerg Verny Oesch-
ger, Athletic Manager, George Becker, Sargeant-at-Arms, Leland Harbers,
Herels another dated Friday, October Ist. Shall we look at it, Bab P"
"Sure, let's look at them all. I think it's great fun to go back this way over
the whole school year."
"All right then. That night the Upper Class men gave the Freshies a
dance, didn't they? Oh, but weren't my feet sore the next morning where
they had been stepped on by Freshies learning to dance! Thank Goodness,
fheir dancing has improved since then.
Here's a note about Mr. Edward Berwick, the acting president of the
International Arbitration and Peace Association of Great Britain, who spoke
on arbitration of modern times. He was awfully interesting, wasn't he ?"
"Yes, I liked him too. He had a knack of story telling all his ownf'
"October 19th was the date of Miss Jane Farley's first recital in Roberts
Hall. NVe have certainly been lucky this year in being able to hear such
The night after Miss Farley's recital, we had the Track Meet Rally down
at school. Didnlt we have a glorious time?"
"I should say we did, with the big bonfire, the apples Mr. Grant furnished,
the songs and yells, speeches and serpentining dance. VV e couldn't help hav-
ing a dandy time. And then October 23 came the Track Meet in Eureka.
Of all exciting events during the year that was the most. And to think we
won! Everybody from Ferndale was certainly happy that day!
"Indeed everybody was, Babs, and had just cause to be."
"N ow let's see what comes next. Heres a big long one, November 13th,
when Arcata was here. Lots of things happened that day. The football and
girls 'basketball games, which we won, the feed we gave them at noon that
Miss Moser and the Domestic Science class prepared, and then at 7130 in the
eveningat Roberts Hall, Miss Farley gave another of her pleasing recitals,
and then we had a dance. I was awfully glad so many Arcatans were able to-
stay over." '
"Yes, and they all said they had such a grand time. VVhat's the note on
the floor there beneath the desk P"
"That? Chg that's about the football and basketball games with Eureka,
November 2oth. It's too bad we were beaten in basketball, but we certainly
had 'football cinched. Poor Eureka! They even had the grave for Ferndale's
goat, but they didn't get it by a long ways! Instead we buried Eureka's here
in Ferndale. '
December 14th. That was the day Farm Adviser Christiansen, Miss
Lillian Clarke of U. C., and Mr. Lee all gave talks o nagriculture. You be-
long to the Girls' Agriculture Club Miss Clarke organized, don't you ?"
"Yes, I joined, a lot of girls did. Miss Clarke said we made a splendid

things having track in the spring and tennis in the fall F"
"VV hy I think it's much better. You see that way the track men have
much more time to practice, and then too, we always have better weather in

In 1914, a Boys' Agricultural Club was stadted in the school, and a cow
contest decided upon. Owing to various difficulties, the contest was not fin-
ished, so no one from the school was sent on the transcontinental tour-the
reward to the prize winner.
The next year, however, the club dropped the idea of the cow, and deter-
mined upon a hog raising contest. The worl-: began April 15, and lasted until
August 3Ist. Nine boys entered the lists for the prize, and eight of them
were in at the finish. The object was to produce a maximum weight hog
at a minimum cost.
The winner of the prize was sent on the transcontinental tour-through
twenty-eight cities, over nine thousand miles.
The expenses of the trip were defrayed by our public spirited citizens, who
subscribed liberally, and by the Student Body.
This year the club was reorganized, and the following officers elected:
President, Louis Lanini: V ice-President, Timothy Canty, Secretary, Luther
Hanson. It was decided to have a potato growing contest.
Early in the term, a Girls' Agriculture Club was organized, and the fol-
lowing officers elected: President, Alice Bessemer, Vice-President, Mildred
Sweet: Secretary, Gladys Bugbee.

On the morning of August 3. 1915, the High School term opened with an
enrollment of twenty-six Freshmen.
Since then, four of our 1ne1nbers have dropped out, while one has joined us.
The first thing we did as lfreshmen was to choose our class officers. The
following members of the class were chosen:
President ..... . . .Harold XVilliams
Vice-President .. ........ Ruby .loppas
Secretary .... . . . Myrtle XVorthington
Treasurer ........ ..... K atie Casanova
Sargeant-at-Arms ......... . . .Fae Morrison
Member of lix. Committee. . . . . . . .... Katie Casanova
The class was all greatly excited, and, if the truth were known, rather
frightened when they were invited by the Upper Classmen to attend a social
function given in their honor. So, by the time the evening of August twenty-
seveuth arrived, they were almost in a state of panic. Wlhen each lfreshman
arrived he was ushered into the Physics Laboratory by the Sophomores who
had charge of the initiation. Each Freshman was provided with a baby cap
and bib. after which the class was marshalled into the Assembly Hall by a
policeman and taken before the judge who accused each one of some
outlandish act. He was pronounced guilty by the jury, which was composed
of a number of incapable persons. For their crimes they were sentenced to
perform innumerable stunts. The first two to be led out were considered the
most obstreperous Freshmen. They were sentenced to Sing Sing, which was
a large box with wire netting in front. One of the meekest Freshmen was
accused and found guilty of disturbing a meeting of the Upper Classmen.
She was commanded to kiss a certain word in the dictionary, blindfolded, and
when she proceeded to do so, suddenly found her face in a basin of water.
Another Freshman was also accused of some outrageous act, for punishment
was blindfolded and told to drink a bottle of soda water, which proved to be
only a bottle of salts, skillfully colored. These were some of the most serious
occurrences and all kinds of secret plots to get even were formed, but none
were carried out.
The Freshmen were given a dance by the Upper Classmen on Friday
evening, October first. Many of the Freshmen took their first steps in danc-
ing on this evening and the Upper Classmen saw that everyone had a good
The Freshmen in return gave a dance to the Upper Classmen on December.
third. The hall was prettily decorated with red and white streamers. Candy
was sold to help defray expenses. There was a fairly good attendance in
spite of the fact that the weather was unfavorable.
The Freshmen have taken an active part in athletics, several having made
the different teams. Two made the track team, three the football team, two
boys' basketball team. Three girls also made the girls' basketball team.

a reception to our classmate, Louis Lanini, who had been successful in Win-
ning the Transcontinental Tour. VVhen the crowd dispersed, each one de-
clared he had spent an enjoyable evening.
On February 18, 1916, the Sophomores entertained the Upper Classmen
at a masquerade dancing party. The usual, well-favored punch was served,
and a candy-sale was well patronized. VVhen at midnight, the party broke
up, it was with the feeling that the Sophomores were "there," when it came
to giving a good time.
On March 18, as we were not able to have the school picnic, the Sopho-
mores enjoyed a theater party, and later an informal party at the High School.
In athletics we were successful in being represented in Track, Football,
Baseball, and Girls' Basketball.

Early in the term the class of 1917 met and organized, electing the follow-
ing officers: President, june Meng, Vice-President, Mary Rennerg Secretary,
lda Oeschgerg Treasurer, Maren Skowg Sargeant-at-Arms, Sadie French,
Executive Member, Linus Hicks, 1917 Business Manager, Cyril Collins, 1917
Editor, Oluf Ring.
The first social event of the year was the Freshman Initiation. The Juniors,
who had charge of the decorations, trimmed the Assembly Hall with japanese
lanterns and red dahlias and helped give the Freshies a good time. At the
Freshman Reception, on October 1, 1915, ice cream was served upstairs by
the Junior girls and this time, too, the decorating fell to a few of the juniors,
aided by Miss Rouark. Red, yellow and green maple palm branches made
the Assembly Hall an attractive ball room.
NV e wonder if the incoming Junior Class will take upon themselves the
duties of decorating for all occasions as we have, because it will be remem-
bered that the present Junior Class has done almost all the decorating since
we entered High School, and not the whole class, either, just a very small
In October, meetings were held and class colors and an emblem were cho-
sen. Green and old rose are our chosen colors and the maiden hair fern, our
emblem. The Juniors, being a very original class, decided to have a mascot.
After a good deal of discussion, a white cat was chosen.
February 13, 1916, the junior girls baked cakes and sold them to the
Domestic Science class, who were giving the Arcata High School visitors a
On March 3, the Juniors gave a candy sale at recess and noon and took in
over seven dollars. This event was very successful and the whole school
complimented the delicious candies set before them.
Plans are now on foot for a May-Day frolic which will consist of a circus,
program, and concessions, as well as other attractions. The money taken
in will go toward defraying the expenses of the Junior Ball, which promises
to be the best yet given by any High School class.

October 23, 1915, dawned bright and crisp. For days before the long
anticipated event, everyone concerned had been anxiously watching the sky
and the barometer hoping that the weather would be fine.
lt was therefore with glad hearts and high hopes that the three schools,
Eureka, Arcata, and Ferndale met on the Eureka High School grounds to
compete for the coveted cup.
The rooters of the visiting schools, who accompanied the teams were
a little surprised to find that no provision had been made for their comfort.
except the placing of a few chairs near the track. and it is certainly hoped that
a grandstand will be erected in the near future.
The track itself was not in good condition-made as it was of soft sand
which constantly rolled itself into balls under the runners feet.
Of course, we know that the ground was new, but we wondered why some
attempt had not been made to surface it.
The meet was one of the closest and most exciting ever held in the county.
lt was not decided until Ferndale's last man had crossed the line in the relay,

In response to a call issued by Coach Riebon and Captain Sweet early in
November, a goodly number of veterans and recruits appeared on the grid-
iron for practice.
Commencing the year with a I7 to o victory against Fortuna, the squad
gradually worked into required condition and reached top form by the time
ihe firstiinterscholastic game was held.
In every way, the football season of 1915 proved successful, from the
standpoint of number of games won, sportsmanship shown and good spirit
There is no doubt that the football squad of 1915 is the equal if not the
superior of any team produced in the past.
The successful coaching of Mr. Rieben in producing a winning eleven de-
serves a word of praise. while the team's victories have made the Red and
,White supporters proud of our 1915 heroes.

November the 7th was warm and brisk and an ideal day for football. The
people took advantage of this and a large crowd witnessed the game.
Thirty-one to seven with Ferndale on the long end and Arcata on the
short end of the tally tells the tale of what was probably the best exhibition
of football shown by F. U. H. S. this season.
For the second time in five attempts the Red and W'hite has succeeded
in trouncing the Arcata football team, thus surprising the admirers of the
Red and W hite, and at the same time proving to Arcata Qbeyond a doubtj
that the winning spirit of F. U. H. S. is never lacking. ,
For the greater portion of the first half, Arcata assumed the aggressive
and as a result came very near scoring on several occasions.
In the second half the Red and VVhite took things into their own'hands
and began a determined onslaught against the Arcata's goal, which resulted
disastrously for the Black and Gold.
The boys of the Red and White played a scientific game and defeated the
Frrcata squad on the home field.
The back field showed up to a great advantage, Ijlarbers, Hindley, Mueller
and Oeschger figuring in many a fast and clean end run, while the men on
the line held their opponents which also helped greatly to bring about the vic-
Captain Sweet of the home team proved by fast and clever tackling that
he was one of the best ends in the county, when time and again he prevented
the opposing team from gaining their yards.
Martin, also, showed up well, receiving many forward passes and making
The Arcata team put up a plucky and aggressive fight, but the team work
and individual playing of our boys was on that day unbeatable.
Eureka mi. illvrrdralr
Eurekafs much heralded champions came to Ferndale the 2oth to take our
boys' goat to Eureka and hang it to a sour apple tree.
In this they utterly failed 5 not only because they were up against a better
combination but on account of our aggressive tactics, which placed the Eu-
rekans on the defensive during the greater part of the contest.
NVhen Referee Jasper blew the whistle both teams took the field, Eureka re-
ceiving the kick-off. Wihen the ball was kicked off, Sweet of Ferndale raced
down the side lines and tackled his man before he had advanced four or five
steps. This made it Eureka's first down and ten yards to gain. Eureka im-
mediately tried a forward pass but this was intercepted and was carried back
to Eureka's ten yard.
Ferndale tried a few line smashes, which proved fruitless as Eurekals line
was too heavy, thus the ball was lost to Eureka.
Ferndale was greatly benefited by this as they had to resort to e11d runs
which proved successful.
From this on the game was a repetition of end runs and forward passes
with Ferndale holding the upper.
The feature of the game was the all round playing of Sweet who always
seemed able to get his men before they hit the line.
Martin also played well on the offensive, receiving many forward passes
and making good gains.
After the game Eureka as usual had an excuse to offer for her defeat
This was not the case as our boys played a more scientific game on the offen
sive than our opponents who at times played indifferently.
When the whistle lbew for the end of the game the score stood 27 to o in
As Fortuna forfeited to us, this ended one of the most successful seasons
in football for the Red and White.

in which the first half was played. The score then stood only IO-5 in our
ln the second half the Arcata girls made little headway against the fast

On account of illness the Ferndale girls wished to postpone the game, but
Eureka saw her advantage and so abiding hy rules, she said, "Play or I"orfeit."
This seemed very unfair, but our girls did not wish to forfeit, so substi-
tutes were put in place of the regular players, and the game played.
Ferndale was defeated hy a score of 42-29. Nevertheless, the fight which
our girls put up was a credit to the school.

On January the 29th the Arcata team came to Ferndale with the firm de-
termination to win the first interscholastic game of the season.
The lferndale boys were equally confident that they would not mar their
splendid record of not having lost a single game since Basket Ball was intro.-
dnced into the county.
The game was called at I :go at Roberts Hall and the intermission between
halves was shortened in order to allow ,Xrcata to catch the train home.
At the beginning of the game both teams started a scrimmage but it was
sc on evident that the superior knowledge of our boys had a telling effect upon
the Arcata team and they seemed soon to tire under the terrific pace set by
The boys of the Red and XYhite started scoring in the first minute of play,
and kept up the good work through the game.
Our forwards worked well in this game, especially Martin. who was the
star of the game. Time and again he threw goals from difficult angles,
.vhich looked impossible. This earned for him the honor of being the best
forward in the county.
VVhen the whistle blew Ferndale was in the lead 51 to 7.

On the evening of February 5th at Roberts Hall Fortuna's fast quintet
clashed with the Red and White.
This game was expected to be unusually close as Martin, one of our star
forwards, was injured on the day before the game while practicing.
Each team, confident of victory, took the floor at about 8 olclock, Fern-
dale defending the south goal. A
When the ball was thrown up at the center the players started a furious
battle for the possession of the ball.
It was soon evident, however, that the fighting spirit of the home team
:vas too much for the Fortuna boys, who fought desperately to avoid being
overwhelmed, but failed as the clever passing, goal throwing and great de-
fensive work of our boys proved too much for the Blue and VVhite.
At half time the score stood 20 to 5 in lferndale's favor. Each team welf
comed the blow of the whistle as all of the players were in need of a rest,
owing to the fact that the game had been unusually fast.
When the whistle blew they took the floor, this time Ferndale defending
the north goal.
Encouraged by their fine showing the Red and NVhite started out the sec-
ond half with renewed confidence and as result piled up score after score,
which Fortuna seemed unable to stop on account of the fast footwork of our
boys, who seemed.to evade the Fortuna players with ease.
By this time the Ferndale boys were so far in the lead that it was impos-
sible for them to lose, so they eased up. F ortuna seemed to take advantage of
our boys letting up, and as a result scored a few times, but it was too late.
When the whistle blew announcing the end of the game, Ferndale was in the
lead 51 to 15.

On February 12th, the Ferndale boys went to Eureka to find out whether
or not they could still win the championship in Basket Ball.
The game was scheduled to take place at 2130 on the High School
grounds. VVhen Referee Givins blew the whistle the teams took their places.
Ferndale defending the north goal. For the first four or five minutes neither
team scored, the ball being in the center of the court most of the time. Each
side had numerous chances to score, but they did not seem to take advantage
of the opportunities offered.
The game was one of the hardest and closest played in tl1e county, each
team fighting doggedly to avert defeat.
Our boys did not play up to their usual standard, owing to the fact that
they had to play on a gravel court, which prevented them, to a great extent,
from dribbling. '
When the whistle blew at the end of the last half the score stood 16 to IO
in favor of the Red and Wliite. This ending another successful season of

lferndale, however. may feel proud of her team, who certainly brought
home some strong arguments. The one weak spot was its inahility to refute
quickly and decisively the points Arcata advanced. ,lt was a severe dis-
appointment to our team as they worked hard and were deserving of victory.
