POULTNEY Professor of Biological SdoncoBDminiSTRflTionPteAjxl nt A common figure about the campus, President Arthur S. Gist is known equally well by both Freshmen and Seniors. Students with t troubles find his a very sympathetic audience, and students find themselves very eager listeners when President Gist is speaking in assemblies. Although he is always very busy supervising the business of the college, he is never too busy to say "hello” to students. In the fall he is invariably number one in the Humboldt rooting section during football games, and on week-ends in the spring he may be found astride a horse at Clam Beach.c Dr. Homer P. Balabanis. Student Bcxiy ad-f viser and economist, has added to his long list of accomplishments the titles of architect and carpenter. On school days, even an appointment may fail to get a student into his £ office, due to the many students already "I yym there, but on Saturday or Sunday an inf or-mal conference is easy while he spades in the yard around his new house. Under his A i guidance, economics classes have steadily JIjPAjIJCVj jVIJI gained in attendance, although they have r W come to be known as "tough." Memorable among his teachings are his statements that ladies do not smoke in cigarette ads, and that even the best gasoline cannot help his Chevrolet. IO uxU-ol MISS DAVIES—Petite and very efficient, Miss Davies fills the exacting position of secretary to the President. Between working hours she finds time to get acquainted with students and to enjoy movies, athletic events, and her tea. MR. HICKLIN—Referred to as the "Major," he of the polite how-do-you-do and the police dog, is—you're right, Dean Hicklin. Besides being Professor of English and Dean of the Lower Division, Mr. Hicklin is acknowledged by campus wits to be Humboldt's Master Punster. MR. GRAVES- -Librarian, photographer, and author of several books; his color films of college activities are favorites with the Student Body. Every spare moment finds him waxing skies or "shooting" sunsets. MRS. WOODCOCK -Behind the scenes in every college activity, from football games to formal dances, Mrs. Woodcock ably handles the school finances and directs the preparations necessary for every successful event—a real help to any student executive. MR. G. B. WILSON—A super-athlete (ping-pong champion, horseback rider, and sun-lamp tan), Mr. Wilson has the ability of drawing and holding large Speech classes and coaching ALL dramatic productions to success.t I A tnUniAtsicdUi i MRS. CARSTENS—One of the sAool "trouble-shooters," a sympathetic listener in tra registrar's office. Mrs. Carstens is a fairy god mother to prospective teachers by way of her handling of the placement service. MR. SCHUSSMAN—It's a long hike down to the Training School to attend Mr. Schussman's classes, but his informal, rambling lectures and ever-ready stories compensate for the discomfort encountered in getting I up and down the hill. MISS CRAIG—In her gym classes, college men and women play grammar school games and like it. Despite Humboldt's weather. Miss Craig has succeeded in arousing interest in golf, hockey, and women's interclass tournaments. , a MISS BALLEW—Texas born, but no languid South- « emer is she who has charmed Humboldt with her slight southern accent and her remarkable command of English. Brimful of energy and new ideas. Miss Ballew is the "mother" of all the Dorm girls. DR. JENKINS—Be it a broken leg or a sore throat, "Doc" is always on hand, ready to administer relief.

Officers who were elected in October to serve for the rest of the year were George Lowry, President; Lois Hedley, Vice-President; and Frances Poulson. Secretary-Treasurer. During the spring, the class held a pot-luck supper, during which a formal meeting was held to decide matters of interest to seniors, and to decide on a way to raise money for the senior gift and other class expenses. Throughout the second semester, meetings were held at noon every Wednesday in the Commons. On April 16, the senior class, together with the Areata Firemen, gave a very successful dance at the Firemen's Hall in Areata. The proceeds were used to buy the senior gift, which was a new enlarger for the school darkroom. Graduation exercises were held in the college gymnasium on June 10, with Dr. Paul F. Cadman, economics teacher of the University of California, as speaker. Loo Soidoll t osident flusuOSiA With their ranks depleted from approximately 150 members in their Freshman year to 42. the Juniors have nevertheless maintained the prominence gained by being the first large, well-organized class since they ushered in the new era at State. For this class brought an entirely new spirit of enthusiasm and school loyalty as well as fame and renown to the college. Granted, the arrival of Charlie Erh and a whole contingent of football players at the time of their entrance was a factor in the Humboldt renaissance. The class of '39 bears the distinction of being the first class ever enrolled at Humboldt to win the Frosh-Soph Brawl for the two successive years in which they participated. As Sophomores they inaugurated the initiation of Frosh women by compelling them to wear yellow or green yarn beards for a period of two weeks. They also controlled the destinies of the Men's Association. the Lumberjack, the Rally Committee, the Student Body Dance Committee, the football and basketball teams, and were well represented in all other college organizations. In September, on viewing their dwindled ranks. Humboldt's wonder class decided that since their Bob Madsen was directing student affairs, they could rest on their laurels, and promptly proceeded to disintegrate. It required three bulletin board notices to round up the strays in order to elect officers. Fred Jack on Sec.-T roasurorf)unia i ClaAl To Lee Seidell, skipper of the basketball team, fell the task of revitalizing the Juniors. Aided by past President Amedeo Sandretto and Freddie Jackson of hula-hula fame, the Juniors entered into spring activities. While Roy Grand, Helen Gruhn, Ray Pedrotti, and Beryl Unsoeld snared scholastic honors, Earl Meneweather, Bill Farber, Jim Harris, Toy Ferin, Bill Collier, Jack Ellis, Phil Littlejohn, Nick Barbieri and Wendal Moore kept the football team in the headlines. Francis Givins, who again topped the league in scoring, Lee Seidell, Vernon Thornton, John McGrath, Wally Lozensky, and Amedeo Sandretto. outstanding members of the basketball squad, were all drawn from the Junior class. The field of drama drew talent from the class in Beryl Unsoeld, Richard Jarboe, Fred Jackson, Audrey Kjer, Sherman Washburn, Bill Inskip, La Verne Elmore, and John McGrath, who was also president of the Men's Association. The dancing of Vi Stansberry and Nathalie Brenner, Bettie McWhorter's singing, Keith Emenegger's radio programs, the candid cameras of Jack Ellis and Don Pozzo and the excellent photography of Jim Hall helped to keep the Juniors in the foreground. Yell Leader Richie Blackburn's ability to create the phenomenal spirit displayed at State athletic contests and pep assemblies topped all his other Student Body activities.

Jim Cady Prosidont To defend themselves against anticipated hazing by the Sophomores. 182 determined Freshmen united under the guidance of Miss Ballew, class adviser, at the beginning of the fall semester. Booted and spurred by fanatical zeal, the Frosh under the leadership of Jim Cady rode rough-shod over the Sophomores in the annual Frosh-Soph brawl. Although their ranks consisted mainly of pampered athletes and idealistic intellectuals who outnumbered the Sophomores 2Vi to 1, the Frosh were forced into submission by "dunking" in the fishpond. Foremost in the belligerent Soph code was the humiliating inauguration of black cotton stockings and no makeup for the women, and the traditional green and gold dinks for the fellows. Typical of the Class of '41 was their unique bid for a niche in the Hall of Fame—the original Fresh- man Return Dance. "Let's Go Slumming" was the theme that attracted a heterogeneous crowd of socially minded Humboldters and brought an avaricious gleam to the eyes of Treasurer Helen Hart-sook. Besides increasing the enrollment, other notable Freshman contributions include the scholastic achievements of Catherine Caltoft, Jean Cooper, Fritz Fleischer. Dorothy Fountain, Waldo Gossard. Arlene Harrington, Minerva Hill, and Helen Woodcock; the athletic prowess of Alvin Biondini, Jim Cady. Art McGrath, Darold Schorlig.

Two years ago was the first time a formal graduation for the commercial students was held. Now, graduation from the Commercial Department is an established school function, and each year the classes in this department are increasing in size and importance. The adviser, Mr. Bert Wilson, has established a very efficient employment service in connection with the department, and at present approximately seventy-five per cent of last year's graduates are employed. While it is not distinctly a class in the true sense of the word, since it is made up of Freshmen, Sophomores, and even Juniors, it is nevertheless treated a class, since it has graduation exercises and elects its own officers. The o i 3Pp elected for this year were Fred Hibler, President; Robert Lawrence, Vice-President; and Pauline Carr, Secretary-Treasurer.Ahuttru Ethel Podrazzini President I ) With paper hats and rattles, the Alumni Association celebrated at a dinner dance held at the Big Four Inn during Teachers' Institute. 123 people, the largest group ever to attend an alumni banquet, were present. The group took enough time off from dancing to elect Ethel Pedrazzini, president; Ugo Giuntini, vice-president; Janet Stewart, secretary; and Hugh B. Stewart, treasurer. A Home-Coming Day banquet was held on April 22 at the College Commons with college students furnishing the entertainment. The alumni hope to make this an annual affair. One of the most outstanding events of the year was a tea given by the faculty wives for the women alumnae at the home of President and Mrs. Arthur S. Gist on March 19. The purpose of the tea was to bring together students and their children (if any) for the renewal of friendships. This year for the first time the alumni became an active association. An executive council met every six weeks to formulate plans for future work. This executive council was composed of the present officers, Ethel Pedrazzini, Ugo Giuntini, Janet Stewart, and Hugh Stewart, and all past presidents which were available, including Clyde Patenaude, James Spiering, Alta McWain Monroe, and George Ugo Giuntini Vice-President Monroe. Plans were laid to hold three banquets during the year, one each in the summer, spring, and fall. The alumni paper, "The Alumnus," which kept all members in touch with alumni and student affairs, was published with Ugo Giuntini as editor and Ruth Carroll as assistant editor. This paper made its appearance three times during the year and contained news about various activities of the different alumni. A final project undertaken was to bring the file of all graduate alumni up-to-date. This service will be a great help to the college as well as to the alumni.BOOK THREE1 « ‘HUIDBOLDT’S V6RR”Ateacioied Stu esiti ► ( The opening of school in the fall found the entire student body full of pep and excitement in anticipation of a successful football season. Assemblies and Student Body meetings were characterized by great enthusiasm. The closing of the Social Unit by the Board of Control caused such a storm of protest that a special student meeting was held at which the students themselves drew up rules of conduct and pledged themselves to maintain these rules. Although no attendance records were shattered, the numerous rallies, bean feeds, assemblies and dances held during the year progressed smoothly.

The responsibility of maintaining high standards of conduct in the college was, as usual, the most serious problem which presented itself to this year's Board. Early in the year. Social Unit loungers, faced with locked doors, were forced to choose between the library and the smokers. Students fumed, but the Board was adamant. After several heated discussions in student body meetings, open forums in the halls, and repeated petitions for the reopening of the Social Unit, the Board of Control relented. The group, although not truly representative of the school, displayed enough differences of opinion to keep the occasional meetings from going too smoothly. Members were Lois Hedley, Charles Glenn, Richard Jarboe, Violet Susan, Virginia Torp, Sherman Washburn, and Amedeo Sandretto, who very tactfully managed what goes on behind the scenes at Humboldt, through the power vested in him as chairman of the Board. Conservatism was the prevailing spirit of the Executive Council. Carefully weighing all student body measures laid before them, the Council displayed unusual executive ability. Credit is given the present administration for the establishment of the first student co-operative store, the recommendation of the annual, and the gracious handling of the football sweater mixup. In an effort to arouse interest in current problems on the part of the students, the Council arranged the Humboldt-St. Mary's College debate on the A. F. L. versus the C. I. O. A new problem presented itself when the ''basketball family" set up the cry. "Why give us stars and letters when it's sweaters we need." When the "family” planned to raise money for jackets by a raffle, the executive council, not wishing the local business men to be further imposed upon, ruled that funds could not be solicited in the name of the college without council sanction.

The first fall activity was the period of freshman education. The Sophomores were appointed policemen to see that the Frosh lived up to the regulations. The culmination of this intense period of characterbuilding was the annual Frosh-Soph Brawl. The entire student body turned out, despite a cloudburst, to watch the Frosh soundly trounce the Sophs. For the tenth consecutive year the Men’s Association (the Freshman element under the direction of Fred Hibler) successfully policed Albeo stadium throughout Humboldt State’s schedule of six home games. One of the local jokers was heard to remark that the only ones who crashed the Humboldt games were the mosquitoes, and they live there. The first of the spring activities was a dance in the college gym. It was a success despite the challenge of the elements. Next came the twelfth annual Barn Dance. The gymnasium was turned into a warehouse for broken-down farm implements. High lights of the evening were the selection of the best costumes, the truckin' contest, and the drinking of the last ladleful of Garff Wilson's apple cider. Harvey Harper was general chairman of the dance. The traditional aftermath to the Barn Dance, the Men's Picnic, next took the attention of the fellows. A day of swimming, baseball, and touch football was topped off by the serving of a Dutch lunch. Jack Ellis was the chairman of the picnic. The grand finale of the year was the assembly program, without a doubt the best of its kind ever produced at Humboldt. This was a variety program under the directoship of Myron Schussman.Francos Poulson Prosidonl Hazel Nichols VlcoProsidont Margaret Harris Secretary rlt o Mcwi Athletic. AdAociatum The Women's Athletic Association is perhaps the most active organization on the campus. This group sponsors parties, banquets, play-days, luncheons and inter-class athletics. The first get-together after the vacation was a swimming party held at Essex in which forty girls donned their gay-colored suits and splashed into the river. The next event on the W. A. A. calendar was a Thanksgiving dinner held in the College Commons. Sixty-nine girls enjoyed a delicious meal in the bright atmosphere of red. gold, and brown autumn leaves. The annual Christmas party under the supervision of Marian McPherson was another gala event. In the fall, the women held their own with the male element of Humboldt in a co-recreational Sports Day in which archery, badminton, and tennis were played. The W.A.A. also participated in interclass games of field-ball, volley-ball, and basket-ball, and held its annual Play-day for high school students from Orick, Eureka, Areata, Hoopa, Ferndale, Fortuna, Del Norte, and South Fork. The theme of this play-day was "The Fair", and was under the direction of Gladys Hinman. Three hundred and seven girls attended. The Sports Spread, a peppy luncheon, was given in the College Commons in honor of those who participated in field-ball and volley-ball. Vesta Moxon and Myrtle Boehne were co-chairmen of this meeting. Under the capable leadership of the president, Frances Poulson; Vice-President, Hazel Nichols; Secretary, Margaret Harris; Treasurer, Valerie Barker; Point Chairman, Bessie Boehne; Song Leader, Edith Jennings; Sports Chairmen and sponsors. Miss Anne Craig and Mrs. Monica Hadley, the W.A.A. has had a most successful and active year.Hop© Dondoro............................Editor Rose Marianne Flowors . . Assistant Editor Koith Emenegqer . . . Businoss Manager "When's the paper coming out?” "Will it be out today?" These questions were showered upon the editor by students and faculty on publication day every week. Luck seemed against the staff! If the press didn't break down, an extra edition of the "Shopping News" had to come out; if everything appeared perfect for the appearance of the paper on time, the copy would be found a galley short. Despite these conditions, the staff worked wholeheartedly to publish a paper which would be a credit to the college. Although the ideal paper in the eyes of many of the students would be little more than a scandal sheet, the staff, realizing that a college paper cannot live without dirt columns, and cannot live with them, cut them to a minimum. To sharpen their senses and their nose for news, the staff indulged in a little sleuthing. Campus mysteries were their forte. Of the three big mysteries that confronted them this year, the staff solved the mystery of the tuna salad and partially solved the mystery of the red socks, but the two year old mystery of Carl Owen's middle name still remains an enigma. During the year there were a few changes in the staff. Keith Emenegger was chosen to succeed Richard Blackburn as Business Manager after Blackburn resigned, and Nick Barbieri succeeded Donald Falk as Sports Editor at the beginning of the second semester. Members of the newswriting classes acted as reporters, bringing in a completely new reporting 3taff during the second semester. It was through the cooperation of the entire student body, the administration, and the Areata Union that the staff was able to edit the Lumberjack successfully. Row 1: Wosloy Hunter.

This being the first annual since 1927, everything was new to the staff, and there was no one to go to for advice. Inexperience was commonplace all glong the line, and the whole appearance of the book changed from day to day. After a period of metamorphosis, a general outline of the annual took place. Assignments were given to the various members of the staff, and work really began. However, Christmas vacation soon came along, and after it, finals. Little work was really done until after the beginning of the second semester, and then it was one grand rush. Jayn Harville, the writeup editor, managed to get in the hospital. Then the rain began, and no pictures could possibly be taken for weeks. Finally, the weather looked brighter now and then, and our gem of a photographer. Jim Hall, got down to serious business. Imagine the editor's surprise when he turned in about fifty pictures in one day! This, along with darkroom difficulties, too! Jim's able assistant, Jack Ellis, should not be forgotten, either. When it came time for the group pictures to be taken, the rain was always pouring down. At last, on the appointed day the sun came out and everything pointed to a good set of pictures. But just as it came time to take them, what should come along but a big slide across the highway, blocking it so that the photographer could not come. The next day it rained again, so in desperation, the groups were taken in the gymnasium. Then, after much hard work, the book was sent to press only several days late, and the business for the year was nearly over. Row 1: Goorgo Fotdmillor, Jim Hall. Wosley Hunlor. Row 2: Jack Dlis.

Don Parker.The still unchartered Associated Women of Sunset Hall resigned themselves to a life in "the slums" when the possibility of a new dormitory for Humboldt vanished. Ignoring the disheartening aspect of Sunset Hall, the Dorm Girls entered into Fall activities by electing Helene Hansen, president; Ellen Matthieson, vice-president; Joy Stockton, secretary-treasurer; Ethel Walters, house manager; and Phyllis Ben bow, social chairman. The first event on the calendar was a dormitory party in the Social Unit to christen two new settees. Lured to the Social Unit by doughnuts, cider, and Garff Wilson's popcorn, the aloof male element joined the girls in parlor games, and even Nick Barbieri danced the Virginia Reel. Thanksgiving was the motif for a charming tea given in honor of the faculty by the dorm girls and Miss Ballew, Beryl Unsoeld Prosidont Vl Stansberry Vice-President Mary Scholl House Manager OAWuJxVUf, Abbociatiott Head Resident. The last social event of the Fall semester was a farewell party for President Hansen, who transferred to Davis. In the spring, the dorm girls' fancy turned to thoughts of politics, and a 12 to 6 majority elected the following officers: Beryl Unsoeld, president; Vi Stansberry, vice-president; Helen Hartsook, secretary-treasurer; Mary Scholl, house manager; and Esther Ritola, social chairman. The progressive platform on which this party stood was: "A broom for every room"; "An iron cord if not a board"; "Six o'clock is too early to build fires—we want an automatic water heater". Under the leadership of Harville and Ritola of Room 5, the Dorm Girls put over a very successful dance in the Big Gym to swell the heater fund. Row 1: Art McGrath. Goorgo Foldmillor.

To properly commence the year's activities there was a treasure hunt and a wiener roast. Little notes set on tree trunks and on the tips of twigs led the group into the woods behind the college. "Turn left at first redwood tree”, "Follow upper trail", "Keep to the right", and at last they reached the clearing on top of the hill and found "Find treasure by old fallen shack". What poor explorers they would make, for it took almost an hour for them to find that precious, hard-earned bag of candy. Asilomar, the annual Field Council conference, drew near. Deputation teams were organized which contacted many of the Humboldt churches. This campaign made it possible to send a delegate, Gladys Hinman, to Asilomar during Christmas vacation. These teams had complete charge of the Sunday evening services of the churches and proved interesting and helpful to the participants and to the audiences as well. All questions as to where students live, what their telephone numbers are. and what class they are in were answered this year by the "Y" which published a complete booklet containing all student information.Glu SiCfjna Row 1: Violet Su an.

At the close of each semester new members are elected to this upper division honor society, the announcement being made at a special "pledge assembly" which is followed by an honor luncheon for the new members. Chi Sigma Epsilon carries on a number of activities each year. There is a semi-annual initiation banquet for all active members and alumni of both Chi Sigma Epsilon and the Rousers, and a Commencement breakfast honoring the Commencement speaker. Each year it sjsonsors an "On to College" program in the various high schools of the county, and it raises a scholarship fund which is awarded to an entering Freshman. An "honor tea" was inaugurated this spring in honor of all students whose scholarship has been exceptionally high during the preceding semester. Each year Chi Sigma Epsilon selects the members of the next year's Rouser society and awards the Freshman honor medal to the most outstanding Freshman student. The present Junior class members of Chi Sigma Epsilon are Ray Pedrotti and Beryl Unsoeld, while Senior members are Eleanor McKay. Hazel Nichols, Myron Schussman (President), and Violet Susan. Graduate students who are members are Lester Larsen and John Van Duzer. Among the faculty are aooociato members President Gist. Dr. Balabanis, Mr. Howe, Dr. MacGinitie, and Miss Johnson, the adviser. Charlos Glonn Valerio Barkor Matthew Fountain (laubenA, For this Sophomore honor society, eight Freshmen are selected each spring by Chi Sigma Epsilon on the basis of scholarship and extra-curricular activities. Usually the most outstanding one of the eight is awarded the Freshman honor medal, but last year medals were awarded to both Matthew Fountain and Lorin Woodcock. Only Matthew Fountain, Valerie Barker, and Charles Glenn of the original eight members returned to school at the beginning of the year. The other members are Lorin Woodcock.

Under the faculty advisorship of Lucy Neely McLane, the Humboldt chapter began with six charter members, George Crighton, Clyde Patenaude, James Usher, Dale Merriam, Lester Dedini and Louis Tollman. Alpha Psi Omega is a purely honorary fraternity. Now members are voted into the organization after playing several major roles in college dramatic performances. Members of Alpha Psi Omega now in college are Violet Susan, Sherman Washburn, Laverne Elmore, Richard Jarboe, Beryl Unsoeld, John Van Duzer, William Inskip, Estelle Preston Koch, and Claire Speier. Prominent among the activities of Alpha Psi Omega is the entertainment of visiting players at the play festivals with other state colleges, held annually at Humboldt State. Because of its small membership, Alpha Psi Omega attempts to sponsor no social events for the public at large, but rather restricts its activities to meetings and parties within the group itself. Several evening meetings were held during the year at which plays were read, and discussed with Mr. Wilson in view of future dramatic presentations at Humboldt. Shorman Washburn. Beryl Unsoeld.

Si(f Pia ZpAdan Rita Through the initiative of Fred Jackson, interest in the Science Gub was revived early in the spring semester. With the help of J. Wendell Howe of the science department, plans for reorganization were made. At the first meeting held in February, Jackson was elected president of the group; Fritz Fleischer, vice-president; True Dolson, secretary-treasurer; and Mr. Howe, faculty adviser. Upon Fleischer's resignation, Irene Paddock was elected to replace him. Soon after its reorganization the club took its present name and form, that of Sigma Epsilon Rho, a science fraternity. The group has stimulated interest in scientific research and collecting, and has furthered the cause of the college museum. At the dinner meetings held every month, which included an outside speaker, the culinary artists of the organization vied with each other in preparing delicacies for the table. Fred Jackson's famous Italian dessert which he concocted for 13 people with 13 eggs. 13 tablespoons of sugar, and 13 half eggshells of Marsala wine, took all prizes. One of the most famous of the outings of the fraternity was a field trip which it sponsored on March 12. The usual March weather, which included streaming skies, prevailed. Mr. Howe and 13 students braved the storm garbed in costumes ranging from rain coats and hip boots to a bathing suit. The low tide of the day provided ample opportunity to study sea life on the beach near Trinidad, despite the drenching downpour.Eleanor McKay President Blanche Lowry Vice-President Hazel Smith Secretary GUL The Kindergarten Club is made up of a group of prospective teachers interested in lower grade work, especially the first and second grades. A meeting is held once a month, and at each meeting they work on some project, such as painting furniture, sewing, or sanding blocks. The purpose of the club is to acquaint the teachers with some of the educational problems connected with the lower grades. Every year the club sponsors an annual Christmas tree, when all the members bring gifts for use in the Kindergarten room. Miss Bestor organized and sponsored the club when she first came to Humboldt, and each year its members have contributed to the more complete furnishing of the Kindergarten room. The main activity of the year is the raising of money to leave a gift to the Kindergarten. Last year the club gave some curtains, and this year the gifts are chests for the Kindergarten and the first grade rooms. Officers for the year were Eleanor McKay, President; Blanche Lowry, Vice-President; and Hazel Smith, Secretary-Treasurer. Row 1: Gregory. Connlck. McAllister, Hedloy. Lowry, McKay.

Bernie Wright; Secretary-Treasurer, George Feldmiller; and Sergeant at Arms, Walter Monroe. Mr. Howe is acting as faculty sponsor this semester. Membership in the Forestry Club is open only to those students who are strictly forestry majors. This semester the organization has a membership of nine. The Forestry Club aims to promote a better understanding of the methods and results of soil and timber conservation. This is to be accomplished by inviting speakers, who are engaged in conservation work, to address the group and the student body at large. The club also plans to make frequent field trips to the nearby national forests and parks. The Forestry Club has received an invitation from the United States Forest Service to attend a meeting of officers of the Trinity National Forest to be held at Redding on May 28 and 29. During the fall semester of this year the club is planning to visit the University of California Forestry Experiment Station at Berkeley.The first annual Student Campus Work Day was held Friday. April 23. 1937. under the promotion and generalship of Bob Madsen. Miss Hazel Nichols was chairman of the women and proved to be very capable in organizing and directing her committees. With a bright, warm day to greet the students, an 8:00 o’clock assembly was held with the faculty giving a hilarious program which was followed by a day of work, play, and fellowship. Among the many projects completed were erection of marker signs, erection of a large redwood sign at the highway, cleaning roads, tree planting, landscaping of various campus spots, re-decorating the smokers, etc. Foreman Franny Moore and his crew took first prize for erecting the big sign at the highway; Jim Moore and his men took second for landscaping the triangle, while Walt Shocker and his tree planting crew was awarded third prize. Said President Gist in regards to Work Day. "I am proud of the students many times, but never more than I was Friday, when we had our allcampus work day. So far as I know, this college has never had activity in which there has been as nearly 100 per cent participation as we had Work Day." It is the hope and desire to make the positions of general chairman and chairman of Work Day a great honor, and to have each year a more successful day.A serious moment while Mr. Poultney explains. . . .

Jeffers, consists of the A Capella Choir, the Little Symphony Orchestra, and the Men's and Women’s Glee Clubs. The Little Symphony Orchestra, which six years ago started with a group of ten, this year has thirty-four members. Formerly, membership in this orchestra was open only to college students. Now, anyone in the community may participate. There are members from Fortuna, Femdale, Scotia, Loleta, Eureka, and other communities. The orchestra gives an annual concert and accompanies the operas and oratorios presented by the music department. Every year for the past three years, this department has presented either a famous opera or an oratorio. In the fall of 1935, the opera, "Carmen", by Bizet, was given, and the following year this group gave the opera "Faust", by Gounod. There were sixty voices in the "Carmen" chorus, and seventy voices in the "Faust" chorus. Guest soloists took part in both operas. Last fall. Handel's famous oratorio. "The Messiah", was presented. The guest soloists were Howard Hazel-tine, bass, from San Jose State College, and Charles Hazeltine, tenor, from the University of Southern California. The two soloists from Humboldt State were Karen Loft, alto, and Mrs. Lillian Klarner, soprano, while the chorus consisted of seventy voices. "The Messiah" proved to be very economical to Mr. Jeffers, for not one baton was broken during rehearsals. The distinguished A Capella Choir was first organized by Mr. Jeffers six years ago. At that time fourteen students met at Mr. Jeffers' home and organized the choir which has now thirty-four voices. Every year the choir takes a tour, going to all of the high schools in Humboldt county, and to the high schools and colleges around the San Francisco bay district, giving about twenty-five concerts in all. Last year the choir sang at the California Western Music Conference and over the National Broadcasting System.0 R C H i S T R ftDrum Major Harley Bradley. . . . The High School Music Festival... .

The college Pep Band is strictly a student affair. Until recently it carried no college credit, and it was organized only four years ago by Carl Owen, the present director. During the fall semester, the band's chief duties were to play at football games, rain or shine. During the spring semester, it appeared loss often, playing only at a few basketball games.

It has grown steadily, until to date several hundred students have participated in dramatic workshop. Under the direction of Mr. Wilson, the Humboldt College Players have presented twenty-six productions ranging from the classical farce, "The Taming of the Shrew," to the modern tragedy, "Journey's End," and including the first amateur premier of "Petrified Forest" and the second amateur performance of "Easy Virtue," it having been given once before by amateurs at the Pasadena Playhouse. The idea of the annual Play Festival with other colleges was originated by Humboldt State and Humboldt is the only college on the coast to exchange plays with two schools. This year, "The Bishop Misbehaves" was presented at San Francisco State, and "The Young Idea" was presented by Chico State at Humboldt. Although Humboldt meets other schools in athletics, the annual play festival is distinctly a noncompetitive enterprise. Other dramatic performances at Humboldt this year were "Holiday," a high comedy, "Three Men on a Horse," a low comedy, and "Spring Dance," a light comedy. Several outside organizations have sponsored performances—the Eureka Women's Club, the DeMolays, and the Rotary Club. A one-act play. "The Happy Journey," was presented at the high schools, the granges, and at service club3 for the purpose of creating community good-will in Humboldt drama. Under John Van Duzer, technical director, the stage craft department of the workshop constructs all scenery. thereby receiving general training in production work through practice rather than theory. Handicapped by a small stage, no backstage, and a minimum budget, the production department of Humboldt is on a par with others having greater facilities. Public interest in the department of drama is growing steadily. Three productions are given each semester, and two or three performances of each play. Garff Wilson says of the department: "Many people swear by us, and many poople swear at us, but we are a growing organization."HOLIDAY Inskip. Washburn, Unsoold. Waters. Inskip.

Using the varsity for only 35 minutes, Humboldt easily defeated this foe from the north. Next in line for the Hilltop Thunderbolts was California Polytechnic from San Luis Obispo. The southern school, a newcomer to State's schedule, proved a hard foe to beat. Held to no points in the first half, Humboldt came back strong to score two touchdowns in the opening eight minutes of the third quarter. State maintained this lead until the final gun. The following Saturday, Coach Len Casanova and his Santa Clara Broncs arrived to upset the Erb apple cart for the second time in three years. Defeated 7 to 6, State spent a week strengthening her weak spots in preparation for her tussle with the Moraga Babes. Abovo—Coach CharJoy Erb Loft—Assistant Coach Frod Tolonicher Bolow—Earl Monowoather, Franny Moore, Toy Forin, Wondal MooroSunday, October 31. Humboldt upset the local scribes' predictions when she beat St. Mary's Frosh 21 to 6. Starting as the underdogs, State played inspired ball throughout the whole game, conquering her adversary from the south for th first time in 3 years. Fresh from her triumph over St. Mary's, State's second string, playing most of the game, defeated the Cardinal Athletic Club of Oakland 43-0. After two weeks of hard practice in preparation for the classic of the year. State played a strong San Jose team in the Albee Mud Bowl during a driving rain. The first half ended 0-0. The third quarter, Humboldt took a two point lead with a safety on a grounded pass. In the final period the Spartan's superior reserve strength overpowered the exhausted Humboldters. San Jose won 13-2. Four victories—two defeats: thus ended a very successful season. Humboldt State—34 Southern Oregon Normal -0 Coach Eberhart's SONS made a gallant fight, but could not copo with the superior playing of Coach Erb's veteran varsity. In this game the second team showed that they could be relied upon to back up the varsity throughout the rest of the season. A Meneweather pass to Ferin, that was good for six, started the scoring. With Windy Moore packing the freight, Humboldt was once again in pay dirt, and Meneweather went over to stake a claim. Early in the second quarter, Meneweather behind good blocking skirted his own left end and rabbit-rcm his 67 yards for the third touchdown. In the fourth period Ferin on a lateral from Franny Moore made the fourth count legal, and Windy Moore made the fifth via the driving method. Even at this early date the whole varsity and Art McGrath and Givins of the second team played excellent ball. Humboldt State—14 California Polytechnic—0 The first half was a slug fest; the second half was Humboldt's. Cal Poly proved that she had been gravely underrated by Charlie Erb when she stopped State, and with an offense equal to her bulldog defiance might have changed the score at any minute of the game. Phil Littlojohn Jim HantsI 1 Half time seemed to help the Staters, for during the first 8 minutes of the third quarter Humboldt made both her touchdowns—Windy Moore and Meneweather, behind effective blocking power-housed the ball to the Cal. Poly 7 where "Minnie” went over for the tally. Franny Moore kicked the extra point. Two minutes later Meneweather on a cross buck raced 45 yards for the second tally, and Franny again used his educated toe to a good advantage. From then on State was held on even terms.

Over-training for five days, tired muscles, and a varsity pulled too soon, helped spell defeat for Humboldt at the hands of Len Casanova's Baby Broncos. State played their most sluggish game of the season when they lot Bronco runs that should have been stopped for a loss go for ten and twenty yards.

Bob Madsen Humboldt’s break came early in the second quarter when Farber recovered Clark's fumble on the Bronco 20 yard stripe, and four plays later Meneweather punched it over for State's lone six. Frannie Moore's try for conversion missed by inches. Saunders' 65 yard run through the entire Humboldt team gave Santa Clara their touchdown. A perfect place kick made the score seven to six where it stayed until the final whistle. State's offense was strong but her defense was weak. Outstanding for Humboldt were Windy Moore and Meneweather in the backfield, and Saunderson and Farber in the line. Humboldt State—20 St. Mary's Frosh—7 Following their defeat at the hands of Santa Clara's Baby Broncos, the Green and Gold returned to the winning column by this hard-earned victory. The downfield tackling of Farber and Thornton played a big part in this win, as did the hole-opening ability of Caviness, Harris, and Saunderson. Three McGrath brothers fought it out legally for once; Franny Moore equaled the punts of Kloto-vich, who was hailed as the best at St. Mary's; and Toy out-guessed Moraga in calling his plays. The underdogs came through! Humboldt State—43 Cardinal Athletic Club—0 Henderson and Collier leading the ground attack, and "Big Nick" throwing passes from any angle. State's second string heat a tired Cardinal team by a big margin. One of the outstanding plays was a pass from Barbieri to "Turf Head" McGrath who lateraled to Ed sail. Edsall then ran 60 yards for a tuchdown. Humboldt fans at last saw material that in 1938 will form the nucleus of State's varsity.

Humboldt State—2 San Jose State—13 Playing under a driving rain on a muddy field, the Thunderbolts fought a powerful San Jose eleven on even terms during the whole first half. Humboldt played a defensive game during almost the entire time, waiting for the breaks. They finally came in the third quarter when Franny Moore punted 42 yards to the San Jose 9 yard line. San Jose's attempted pass was grounded behind the goal line, scoring a safety for Humboldt. Then a fumbled punt and a poor kick paved the way for San Jose's first score by Zimmerman, who smashed through the line. In the fourth quarter, San Jose again scored after a long drive led by Zimmerman. Strategy and superior reserve strength were responsible for San Jose's victory. Mud on the field was several inches thick, making regulation suits a handicap. San Jose's line appeared on the field dressed in shorts, and the backfield in ordinary jeans. This lighter weight proved too much for Humboldt, who was handicapped in the first place by a limited number of reserves, and ufter the start of the second half, fresh reserves were continually brought in to the game for San Jose, but Humboldt used practically the same team throughout.This year the K. B. McCarthy trophy for the most valuable man on the team went to Phil Littlejohn, guard. In making the selection, service in games, attitude on the field, ability, and scholastic standing are all considered. The team this year was composed of many of last year's veterans, plus many newcomers, making 30 in all on the squad. This was the last season for Coach Charley Erb, who resigned his position at Humboldt on April 18. Erb had served 3 very successful seasons at Humboldt. bringing football up to its present standing of importance. As assistants last season, Fred Telonicher and "Dummy" Wells ably filled two important posts on the coaching staff. Meneweather tries to break through. Bill Fork Little brother Art McGrathfcalhetball With the return of a veteran team, Coach Telonicher drew up a strong intercollegiate basketball schedule. For the first time in the history of Humboldt, the basketball team played more than eight college games. Led by Captain Lee Seidell, the Thunderbolts won all of the Redwood League games and four out of eleven college games. SANTA CLARA In playing Santa Clara, Humboldt put in its application for a place among university competition. Although Santa Clara did win both games 48-22 and 33-16, Humboldt was neither swamped nor discouraged. SOUTHERN OREGON NORMAL SCHOOL Two days before the team left for Oregon, Humboldt received its greatest setback of basketball history. Frank Saunderson, the leader of the squad, amputated part of his thumb. Everyone saw Humboldt's basketball team crumple, but Bud Villa took over Saunder-son's duties and came through like a champion. Humboldt won the first game with ease, 32-21. In the second game the SONS reversed the charges to the tune of 42 to 23.

SAN FRANCISCO STATE In the first game it looked as if the Gaters were going to whitewash the boys from the redwood belt, with Thayer and Johnson putting the ball through the hoop with regularity. Humboldt did not seem to have a care for basketball, so the Gaters won 39 to 29. The Thunderbolts got together and squelched San Francisco State in the second game, 45 to 42. It was then that a new star fell on the maple floor of Humboldt in the person of John McGrath, who did not do any scoring, but put the pepper into the game and made the team function the way it should. For the first time in the season Givins, Humboldt's scoring ace, began to score, making 19 points.

SAN JOSE STATE In the first game the Spartans looked like champions with Humboldt appearing out of its class. With great offensive and defensive powers plus a quantity of material, the Spartans turned on the pressure and smothered Humboldt, 54 to 36. All the Humboldt veterans seemed gone, but a spark came out of the Freshman class and burned a hole through the defensive guard of the Spartans. Alvin Biondini, the Frosh hurricane, scored 21 points, a feat never before accomplished by any Humboldt man. The second game seemed a repetition of the first, but in the second half Humboldt made a splurge of points. This brought them within two points of the lead. JCotta and Thomas of San lose then took matters in hand and the Spartans crossed the time line, leading 46 to 39. Mituvi TENNIS Sow 1: Wilson. WyiJe. Woodcock, Elmore. Row 2: I McGrath. Cody. W.

However, a team was organized and it played several practice games, the most important of these being with the Samoa-Arcata Blues. TENNIS Tennis is the only minor sport at Humboldt that has really taken part in collegiate competition. Last season the tennisters took a lengthy excursion to the central part of the state where they played San Mateo Junior College, Marin Junior College, and Modesto Junior College. Although the Thunderbolts did not triumph, they did give a good account of themselves and lost only by a slight margin. ARCHERY Under the tutelage of Coach Telonicher, the classes in this sport have been growing so fast in size and number that they have kept Telonicher on his feet almost all hours of the day.
