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 ll 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 of life. Now, although we are leaving Ferndale High, we will always support it in its activities and remain loyal to the Red and VVhite. ERLA RING, '16, 12 0112155 will VV e, the Senior Class of the Ferndale Union High School, of the City of Ferndale, in the State of California, being of sound mind and memory, do make, publish, and declare this our last will and testament. To the beloved Q?j junior Class we leave our cherished corner under the clock, our genuine school spirit, our superior intellectual ability, and our student dignity. To the pompous Sophomores we dedicate our retiring disposition, our skill in Dramaltics, and our reverence for established traditions. VV e alsc leave a quart jar of antiflugestine to reduce their swelled heads. To the innocent Freshmen we bequeath our absolute obedience to the fac- ulty, our unquestionable loyalty to the school, and our masterful way of hand- ling subjects in Student Body. To Miss Moser we dedicate our tatting shuttles and crochet hooks, and our skill in serving course dinners. To Miss Minthorn we leave the memory of our serene QFD study hall periods, our appreciation of her delight in the Junior Class, and the privilege of taking her class on a picnic next year. To Miss Rouark we will our masterpieces in English composition, the "aching void" left by our departure, and our innocent looks when reprimanded for talking. To Mr. Rieben we dedicate the privilege of winding the Study Hall clock, the difficult task of replacing our men on the different teams, and the mow-- ing of the front lawn. To Mr. Grant we leave our breathless interest in the articles he reads us in Study Hall, our even temper, and our knowledge of Parliamentary Law. Mr. Brown we leave our history note books, our penmanship and a bamboo pole for keeping order in the study hall.

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. Ji 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 fun, 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. I 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. ll M 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- ters," 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. -Ethel Ericksen, '1 6.

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 with me." So this is how Greenburg was set agog by the sudden opening of "The 18 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 earnestly. "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 different directions. "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" gulped Philip. 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 19 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 ?" - EV.-X ,lllNNlNGS, 'IS 20 31 Zllemrmhrr, 31 Illrmvmher 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. 21 Uhr milh Ilinml nf ignmhnlht Qlmmtg 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 indeed. 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 extent. 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 22 K! if 7.45 lit? I3 f "ff -azz" , the 51" J' if ll E. lla ' ti if impossible to find it. It gives a peculiar "hoot" that can be heard a long way off. 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 them and it is still unlawful to shoot them. The trouble with the pheasant is that she makes her nest in the grain fields just as the grain is ready to cut and almost all of the nests are run over and the eggs broken by the mowing machines. Brant and geese are not as plentiful as they might be although one some- times gets a few shots at the honkers as they sail along on their migratory flight. FRANK FRANCIS, 717. Ignnka 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 thoughts. My heart thrills with Sir VValter Scott in his stories of chivalry, while I enter the homes of the poor with Charles Dickens. . I descend into the depths of the sea with Jules Vernes and see all the sub- marine wonders. I have ascended into the air with Ralphson, and shared the dangers of flying. y V. I have been instructed in the mysteries and wonders of the noble red man with Cooper. Have riden the bucking broncho, and shared the round-up with Bower. Once I was with Rex Beach, and jack London, during the gold rush in Alaska, and I have sweltered in the hot, and hunting jungles of India with Kipling. I have even been fighting the Boers in South Africa with Foran, but I was a traitor at heart because I sympathized with the enemy. After all, I find myself something of a hero, because at the time I lose my identity, and truly enter into the spirit of their adventures. Sometimes my mother and I enter the fields of poverty, but with the ex- ception of Longfellow, and Sir VValter Scott, my flights of fancy end, and I drop out. Perhaps I lack imagination, or those finer qualities I mentioned above. HAROLD PETERSEN, ,IQ 23 A lieaaimiat C5112 Zliair 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---- OLUF A. RING, ,17 Pm Gbptimiut mlm 3 Eningrh the lisqxnzitinn 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. 24 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. MAREN sKow, ,I7 25 Qnmanrr nf the flliarahlanh 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 26 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 mark. Once more a lonely young drake flew sadly over the gleaming waves and flying foam to the southward. ARDEN RING, ,I7 N 1 I ,V I ' -J I Y W' smirk JZ Nllix G Y f 7, X K J i 7 f 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 27 - illrrnhalr Hninn i6igh Svrhnnl Svinrr 15114 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 22, 1907. 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 28 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: Tfilbk-'07, '08, "IZ and '15, Boys' B. Ball-'14, '15 and '16, Football-'08, '12, '13 and ,I5.

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 29 mhirh? QPrize Articlej I Ferndale, Cal., Feb. 29, 1916. Dear Tom, W'hat kind of weather are you having now? It is just cold enough here to make us feel like doing things, so Dick and I play tennis between school hours. Say Tom, school spirit is great, isn't it? Talkin' of magic power and all that-it has it over them all. lt makes a fellow forget he has a care or worry and sets him to prancing like a two-year-old. I was feeling terribly bum yesterday ,till I remembered about the big game, and then I began to im- prove right away. All of the bunch went together and we had heaps of fun. ,lim pulled himself out of bed to go and got such a cold that he won't be able to debate tonight. I-Ie was feeling pretty blue about it but we jollied him up and told him we'd win anyway. School spirit-I call this the real article! But it's too killing for anything to see some of the fellows go 'round with long faces, poring over magazines and books to find things for debates, pro- grams, and all that kind of stuff, and then talk about school spirit! They know nearly as much about it as Darius Green did about flying, theylll come down just as hard some day too-all flat and sprawling on the ground! But, thank goodness, there are a few of us left who know how to yell for our colors. Rah! Rah! Rah! For us. Your Chum, JACK. Ferndale, Cal., April 8, 1916. Dear Tom: 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," 30 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 any more. Goodbye, Jack, LOLA MCGLAUGHLIN, '16 31 what Stuhgmg!

MARY CANTY, '16 lllnmvnirk 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 chin, a knock came at the door. ZOE KELSEY, ,I7 52 mhg me Quai Girlz' Tgaakrthall 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 done. 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.

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. 34 "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 "Help!" "Well be jabers, how can I help, ye's when I donlt know where ye's be," he shouted. "Here, down here on the walkli' yelled Jack, "and with a twisted foot, zoof' "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 Lower. 55 ' 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 sprained-Huh FU "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 sooner." "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 jack. "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 ...... "Large steamer Barlow, nearly wrecked off Garner Reef south of the new lighthouse. Lost course in heavy fog. Light from old deserted light- house gave warning just in time. Another minute and would have been on reef! This was the startling heading of a newspaper, that jack, after having been found by a searching party and taken back to the resort, read the morn- ing after the adventure. "Yes it was saved alright," he muttered, "thanks to that old pipe." K6 GLADYS BUGBEE, 'I 7 56 Glmirin 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- lret. 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- Public. 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. i FAE MORRISON, ,IQ 37 Ellie Glhinrne Rini in 1535 "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 in jail. 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 wounded. 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.

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.

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 France? K 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- 40 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 putees. 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 roads. 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 the station. 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. 41 4 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 42 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. My Friend: 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. 43 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 mangled bodies. 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 corner. 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.

The staff has earnestly endeavored to make this issue worthy of your patronage, and if it meets your approval or contains anything worth while, we are satisfied. But if it is not up to your standard of what a school paper should be, we will welcome any suggestion you may have for its improvement. Before putting aside our editorial cares, we take great pleasure in extending thanks to those who have in any way contributed to the success of our enter- prise, to our advertisers, who have, by their liberality, been responsible for the success of this and every previous issue of the "Tomahawkgl' to Miss Rouark for her efficient and able work in coaching this publication and her assistance to us, to Miss Minthorn of the Commercial Department, and the members of her typewriting class, all of whom have generously helped us, to the other members of the faculty and to all those who have in any way, either personally or indirectly aided us, last, but not least-to all those who generously assist us by purchasing copies of this issue. A Another year has passed, and again the victorious F. U. H. S. has proven beyond a doubt that it is very much alive. In every respect, the year has been a successful oneg our teams have won in all lines of athletics by their good, clean sportsmanship, the school has been successful in dramatics and debating 5 the 'students have upheld their standard of school spirit, they have taken de- feat as one who cares not for praise, but as one who knows that whether win- ner or loser, he has put up a clean fight and has shown the right spirit toward his opponents. Cn the whole, we believe that the F. U. H. S. has proven beyond a doubt that it is the possessor of excellent material in all lines of school work. Early in the year, the management decided to offer prizes for the best ma- 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 46 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 in life. 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.

W 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 enough. 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 attractive. 50 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 pictures. 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. 51 Sequoia: Eureka.-A very good paper. Especially in the arrangement of Senior pictures. 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 school.

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.

"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 ?" 56 l "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." Svgnnpnin nf the mag 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 - 57 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, hand-cuffed. Climax. 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.

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 all. 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 59 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. Q Svrhnnl Nairn "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 sheep." "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, Yell Leader. 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 ?" 60 "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 gifted people. 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 beginning." "N ot changing the subject, but what do you think of the new order of 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 the springf, "VV ell, back to the notes again! january 2ISt. New song books arrived. Yes, and they were certainly an improvement over the others. January 29th, Boys' Basketball game with Arcata at Ferndale 5 Ferndale's teams are pretty hard to beat, all right-we had them beaten right at the first. February 12th. Ferndale wins Basketball Championship. I'm sorry I couldn't go to Eureka to se ethe game, as everybody who went says it was awfully exciting. Ferndale came out victorious a-gain. We certainly have just cause to be proud of our school. Did you hear what was said about the High School play? You didn'tl Well, I heard ever so many people say they think it was the best ever put on by amateurs in Ferndale. 61 "Heres a list of names of those who have earned their block F's this year: 'Dluf Ring, Katherine Casanova, Harold Guptill, Harold Williains, Catherine ifwohig, Amiel Muller, Qtto Riebem, clinton Morrison and Glen Haas: from Freshmen and one Junior. Quite an honor lor the Freshies. "There! that's about all the notes 1 have here, but there are a number of things we haven't talked about-for instance, the school house being paintedf' "Yes, that certainly is an improvement. When the flowers the Agriculture Class planted around the building and walk bloom, and the grass that has been sown in front comes up, we will have very attractive grounds.. "Then for athletics, there are the new baseball suits and the new tennis net." "Yes, we have a great many new things besides those-the new library books, one hundred of them, five new typewriters, and for the Domestic Qcience class a sewing machine, a table for four and outside cooler." "There, I guess that includes about everything! Oh! Don't go so soon, Babs!" "Soon?

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. wx 63 Zfllrvnhmaln Qllaum uma 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 64 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 time. 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.

Without throwing any bouquets at ourselves, we have to admit that the Sophomores have taken a prominent part in all school activities. Both the yell leader and his assistant were chosen from our class, which proves our school spirit. Socially we have been most successful. XV e were given the honor of Wel- coming the Freshmen, and and we certainly showed we could do credit to the occasion. The next social event took place on December 10, 1915, when we tendered. 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, 66 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. XV e were highly honored by having two from our class help represent the school in the Inter-Scholastic Debate. We are now ready to assume with becoming dignity, the role of Upper Classmen, and we trust the incoming Sophomores may succeed as well as we have. MILDRED SWEET, '18 67 Sluninr nina 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 percentage. 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 68 Domestic Science class, who were giving the Arcata High School visitors a dinner. 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.

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, :he last event of the meet. The following is the list of events, winners, and time. Mile Run-Gibbs, Eureka, first: Williams. Ferndale, second: Ring, Fern- dale, third: time, 5 208. 50 Yard Dash-Olsen.

Much credit is due to our victorious track team of IQI5. Back Row, left to right: G. Rieben, Coach : H. Williams, A. Martin, V. Oeschger, L. Hicks. Second Row: O. Ring, , S. Morrison, H. Guptill, L.

Zlinnthall 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 developed. 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. Armin mi. Ellvrnhale 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. 74 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- tory. 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 good gains. 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. 75 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 our favor. As Fortuna forfeited to us, this ended one of the most successful seasons in football for the Red and White.

Both teams met with high hopes of victory shown by the spirit and vigor in which the first half was played. The score then stood only IO-5 in our Favor. ln the second half the Arcata girls made little headway against the fast ream work and goal throwing of our girls. Thus, at the end of the game, the score stood 25-I3 in Ferndale's favor. Eurrka ua. Zllrrnhzxlv On November 20th, Eureka wasscheduled to play Ferndale on the home grounds. 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. Ellvrnhalr ua. Zllnrtunu This game was not played on account of the severity of the weather. 77 l Left to right: G. Rieben, Coach 5 G. Haas, H. Guptill, H. Hindley, B. Chapin, F. Francis, V. Oeschger, Captain, A. Martin, L. Hicks iflnga' liaakrthall 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 our boys. 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. 78 Zllnriuna nn. Zlirrnhale 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. Zllrrnhale na. iliurrka 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.

The lferndale team composed of lirla Ring, llarold .Xggeleiy and Leland llarhers against Klary l'arton, .Xrgyle Desmond, Oscar Larsen, of ,Xrcata. The question for dehate was, Hllesolved, that the United States Govern- ment should acquire vessels to he operated in foreign and domestic trade." lferndale having the affirmative. Bliss Ring' of lferndale opened the dehate in a strong convincing speech, followed hy Aggeler and Harlmers with .Xggeler giving the rehuttal. The judges appointed were Rev. Crichton, F. Quinn, and Hans Nelson, all of lfureka. who decided 2 to 1 in favor of th enegative. The decision was a complete surprise hoth to the audience and the oppos- ing teams. 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. 81 - .-' 'nfg g 1' Q., ,v,,n',txg1,, ,, wise!! sis: . .Hill 4011-nfl 'Q' .

After two weeks of practice, Captain 83 .Xlartin and ,Coach Reiben arranged a series of five games between the Seniors and Sophs. against the Juniors and Freshmen. This series proved close and exciting. The Seniors and Sophs. took the first two games by scores 4 to 3 and 5 to 4. The Freshmen and Juniors took the next two by the same scores. The games now stood two wins and two losses for each side. Much rivalry was shown as to who would win the deciding game of the series. The Seniors and Sophs. proved equal to the occasion and won the last and deciding game by the overwhelming score of IO to I.
