Three times the Reaper grim hath taken toll,
And every time a friend has passed to restg
Well loved were they alike hy young and old,
Their lives knew only what in life is bestg
So well they did their work among us here,
So faithfully their duties they performed,
So little need was there of further test,
That, lest they sorrow in this earthly joumey lind
The All-wise Father called them Home to rest.

The ready response of the people of Arcata
and vicinity to anything that will further the
1 Q 1 interests of the high school is ample evidence
that they are interested in the school and anx-
ious that it succeed. The fact that it was
organized twenty-three years ago, when a
comparatively small number of California com-
munities had high schools, is another proof
of the strong sentiment here in favor of giving
the boys and girls every possible educational
Knowing that the people are in sympathy
with the school, and that they have faith in
what it is doing and destined to do for the
youth of this community, has made us feel
keenly the responsibility resting upon us. It
has been our aim to promote the growth begun
in the earlier years of the school, a growth
not only in numbers but also in traditions,
variety of courses, general influence and repu-
tation. We have endeavored to study the
A. o. coopemuer, Principal needs and adopt the best available means for
Science satisfying those needs. When the present
seniors entered four years ago, they came a class of thirty-five. It was
immediately evident that a force of five teachers could not efficiently handle
the work with the enrollment now above one hundred, and a sixth teacher
was promptly authorized by the Board. This enabled us to organize first
year science work, to give increased attention to commercial work, draw-
ing, language and music. A new difficulty now confronted us in the way
of lack of room. A second story had been added to the building a few years
previous, and further expansion in that direction was not possible. With a
few make-shifts we managed to get along for two years, when a much
needed assembly hall was completed.
It proved, however, that these were only temporary measures of relief.
Whether from an increase in the number of teachers, with the consequent
increase in variety of courses offered, or from a general recognition of the
need of high school training, the fact remains that instead of an entering
class of 'thirty-five in 1913, we had to provide for a freshman class of fifty-
five in 1915, the year the assembly hall was completed, and a like number
of first year students appeared again in 1916. It was necessary to secure
a teacher for part time in 1915 and she was employed for full time in 1916.
For the year ending in june, 1913, the average attendance was ninety-two.
This increased by june, 1914, to ninety-seven, and in June, 1915, it averaged
ninety-eight. In 1916 it jumped to one-hundred and twenty-three, and for the
first eight months of the present school year the attendance averages one
hundred and thirty-six.
The figures above show that while we have increased the number of
teachers from five to seven, and increased the room and other facilities,
these increases have not kept pace with the growth in attendance. We feel
