"Over and through
and never around"
y 1920 - - 1921
On August 9, 19120, about eighty-two new and inexperienced fresh-
men entered the A. U H. S. According to the sophfrnores, tle inilaiicri
of these fresh, green, young things proved to be a great -success, src' all
became acquainted with the school.
Towards the end of the year the freshman picnic was held at Moon-
1921 - - 1922
The opening of sr-hool found most of the preceding year'sfreshmen back
to begin their sophomore career. The first pleasure was in seeing the fresh-
men act foolishly when they were successfully initiated into the A. U. H. S.
The Sophomore Halloween Party was enjoyed by all who attended.
The Interclass Athletic Cup was awarded to the Sophomore class for
having the majority of points in the various games played.
The picnic was held at Camp Bauer.
' 1922 - - 1923
The work in the third year was begun with much enthusiam. An act-
ive part was taken in all branches of athletics and school activities. The
annual Junior Candy Pri' was held in the agriculture room where everybody
enjoyed a good time A
The Senior and I .n.ior Picric was held at Camp Bauer, and everyone
had a wonderful outing.
1923 - - 1924
Over the top! How proud and elated the seniors have been to be con-
sidered leaders in A. U. H. S. Of the eighty-two who started as Freshman
there are twenty-seven, but, with the entrance of others, the graduating
class numbers thirty-three.
With the help of our class teacher, Miss Gallagher, and of the rest of
the class, the Clmietn as Dinner turned out a great success.
Freak Day prfdwted many kinds of "freaks" and much noise and
laughter in the different classes. . '
Many as mer evfnts will occupy the busy seniors' time until happy high
school days are endedby graduation. ' ,

One day as I was riding along through the woods about ten miles from the
lodge where I was spending my summer vacation, I saw a wonderful sight.
It was one of the beautiful canyons in Arizona. The deep chasm was v- shaped
with walls of tremendous size, which looked red when the sun shone on them.
It made me shudder just to look down the steep, rock-strewn trail along which
one must go in order to reach the floor of the canyon, but far dawn at the
bottom 1 saw the white tops of tents and small objects moving about. I was
loath to go until I had found out what the objects Were: besides, the wild,
beautiful grandeur of the place called me. The low, mellow murmur of run-
ning water decided me, so I jerked the reins of my horse and started down
the steep, dangerous trail, my horse walking with his legs stiff and his head
As I neared the place where I had seen the tents, I saw that it was agypsy
camp. Small ragged children were running about everywhere, many of them
wading in the water. Just asI approached the stream, and was akcut to
cross, I saw one of the little boys lose his footing and fall in. He was so
frightened that, although the water was not deep, he could not rise. I had heard
of the iciness of these Arizona waters, and, when the little boy began to cry
for heip, I went in after him. The waters were very cold indeed, and the
poor little boy was frightened to death. When I had picked him up, I took
him back to the camp where I was met by a beautiful black-haired gypsy
girl who came up to me and took the little boy. After thanking me very
much. she asked me if I wanted her to read my palm or to tell me anything
about the future.
At first I was inclined to refuse, but then it occurred to me that here
was a way to learn the whereabouts of my former class mates. According-
ly, I asked this black-eyed beauty if she could tell me of the class of 1924.
For answer she ran into one of the tents and came out with a huge crystal
ball. She explained that in it she would be able to see those about whom I
wished to learn, and that she would reveal to me their careers. She sat down
cross-legged and held the crystal in her lap. Ialso sat down. For a few min-
utes she never said a word, but just sat gazing into the crystal. Her black
eyes took on gradually a dreamy expression as she kept them fixed on the
crystal ball. All at once a little smile lit the corners of her mouth, and she
began to talk in a trance-like, sing-song voice. "I see the face of a beauti-
ful black-haired dancing girl who is trying to say something. Look in this
ball to see if you can see her."
I looked in the ball and saw Lorna Cochrane. Her lips seemed to ie
forming the words. "Hello, Freda", and Iwas about to answer, so life-like
did she seem, when the vision faded away and another took form. The gypsy
told me not to look, for, if I did, the vision would not be so clear. Then she
began to speak.
"I seea little cottage nestled in some hills. The owners are Frank
Acorn and Dorothy Christie?
The gypsy said nothing for a while, but at length she began to speak
"The scene has changed to Venice, I see two people in a gondola. The
man is Lester Spellenberg who, in order that he may woo the most haughty
society woman of Europe and America,has joined the group of Americans
who live abroad. The lady is Ruth Brown. 7'
The gypsy ran her fingers across the crystal as if to clear away the
vision, while I sat waiting, excited and breathless because I was hearing all
about my old friends and classmates. She began talking again in her slow
"I see a hospital where a nurse is sitting beside the bed of a patient.
The nurse is Imogene Brundin, but, since the vision of the patient is in-
distinct, he can not have been a member of your class.
"Now I see a great opera house. In the scene is a man whose name is
Michael Pontoni. He is the women's idol. The leading lady is a fair-haired,
beautiful girl whose name is Lillian Gray. As I glance around through the
opera house I see many faces. One attracts my attention because he is look-
ing and smiling at the two acting upon the stage. His name is Clemens Mc-
Claskey. He is a wealthy broker. "
I did not say a word for fear of breaking the spell, but just drew in
my breath with a glad sigh, for as the gypsy talked, I again saw the dear faces
I had known in old A. U. H. S. where I had spent four very happy years
My reverie was interrupted by the gypsy.
"I see two women hurriedly walking down a crowded street in Pekin.
They are missionaries whose names are Kathleen Anderson and Estelle
Preston. I also see the palace of the Emperor. He and the United States
ambassador are in conference. The ambassador is Wanah Randle. Above
the emperor's palace is a very large aeroplane. In it is a man named An-
drew Smith, who is captain of the world's largest passenger plane. Two
passengers I see very clearly. One is Alexia Devlin, a society belle, and
the other is Monroe Spaght, a man of great wealth in the United States."
I did not wonder much at Monroe's progress, because anyone who had
been as studious as he had been in high school would naturally become a
great man. The gypsy's voice broke in on my thoughts as she continued
"In the castle of Sweden I see a man who used to go with you to high
school. His name is William Lundberg. Because of his ability to speak the
Swedish language and because of his knowledge of the immigration question
he has been asked to confer with the king of Sweden about the Swedish
immigrants to the U. S. "
The fortune teller kept right on.
"I see in Paris a very busy street where there is much noise. A parade
led by an American band is coming down the street. Before the band. in A-
merican uniform. is a man carrying the American flag The man is Leslie
Stromberg. while the leader of the band is Frank Davis. Among the crowd
of people fcllnwing the band is Welton Worthington who has an American
orchestra in Paris. With him is Laverne Larson, teacher of dancing."
The gypsy stopped for a few minutes, and I knew the scene was chang-
ing again, but she began directly.
"Far out on the sea I catch sight of an American cruiser, at the helm
I see Alexander MacMillan who has traveled in all corners of the world.
Nevertheless, in all his travels he has not forgotten,Eva Stephens. The
cruiser nears an island, and I see that someone on the island has drawn
the attention of sailors on the boat. The captain is sending sailors with life
boats to the island. It seems as though two men have been shipwrecked,
and that they have been on the island a long time, for there are beards on
their faces, and their clothes are in rags. When they reach Alexander's
ship he puts out his hand and shakes hands with them. All seem very glad
to see one another. The two rescued men are William Hale and Harold
I wondered how William and Harold had come to be on the island,but I
did not find out because the gypsy continued.
"In sunny Italy I see a beautiful villa. Herbert Lawson lives here. He
has married a beautiful Italian maiden. "
"In New York Isee a fashionable girls, finishing school. Miss Dorothy
St. Louis is an instructor here, while Clifford Berry and Ernest Henry are
the Latin and history teachers respectively. I see also a beautiful church,
and as I look inside itI see that a wedding is in progress. The smiling and
blushing bride is Mary Board." '
I waited anxiously for the gypsy to continue, for I knew that she had
told me a little of nearly every one of my classmates, and I was anxious to
hear the rest. However, I did not have to wait, for she proceeded.
"I see aranch house not many miles from here. In it are two girls visit-
ing. Their names are Dagmar Freeman and Naomi Fox."
I determined to see if Icould find these two friends of mine that were so
near, butI did not say a word, because the gypsy had not yet told me about
myself, and I was very anxious to hear my future. Even as I was thinking,
however, the gypsy trembled and then gave a start as she slowly raised her
eyes from the crystal. She had not looked up once during her whole recital,
so I knew that the spell was broken. I leaned back in disappointment, but
then I remembered that she had said that Dagmar and Naomi were not
many miles away, so I hurriedly thanked her for her kindness, sprang upon
my horse, and started up the trail. To be sure, I had wanted to know what
the future had in store for me, but on the other hand, I did not care, for I

We, the seniors of the Arcata Union High School, realizing that the
time is drawing near when we must leave our beloved school, and wishing

The Class of '24
U. R. Witty
WEWZQH H E ET gpg, ' he "A" or Letter Club, started at the beginning of the school term
by Mr. McKittrick, is a new organizaion in the A. U. H. S. The
purpose of this organization is to better athletics in the high
,LL,QQg3A. school. The membership is limited to students who have won
their letters in some branch of athletics.
This school, though always noted for its leadership in athletics, needs an
organization like this because such an organization helps to keep up the
interest in athletics. Formerly it was always the same students who took
part in the various branches of sports. The"A" Club, however, will arouse
a keener interest in athletics, and will help bring out more students for the
A shield has been presented to the Student Body by the club. The
student who, during the year, has excelled in character, courtesy, scholar-
ship, and athletics will be entitled to have his name engraved upon the shield.
Each year a different name will be engraved, and each year it will be a
greater honor to have one's name engraved upon it. In the opinion of the
writer it will be a greater honor to have one's name engraved upon this
shield than to be President of the Student Body, which is the highest honor
a student in the A. U. H. S. can receive.
The Club is planning to present to each senior who has won his letterin
some branch of athletics a sweater with a letter on the front, and. on the
sleeve, stripes which will denote how many years he has played in that branch
of athletics. The Club plans from time to time to give programs, the prf -
ceeds of which will go towards the purchase of sweaters. A party has al-
ready been given and was well enjoyed. This shows that the "AH Club
means to do something to keep up the interest of the members, and to be-
come one of the leading organization of the school.
The boys are the only ones who have formed such a club, but there is
no reason why the girls cannot organize a similar one. Through the cooper-

"You are the citizens of tomorrow."
'Tis a phrase we often hear
From the men and women of the world
To us--students of a younger yearg
And listen we then in silence. I
For we cannot debate
That we shall soon be citizens,
And man the Ship of State:
l But were it not for seeing
That statement acted out,
We could not be in earnest, '
And our hearts would fill with doubt,
But we have the good example,
Of the citizens of today--
With respect we look upon the Alumni,

The Junior Class of 1924 was one of the most prominent classes that
ever graced the fair halls of the A. U. H. S. Besides figuring prominently
in Student Body affairs, it contributed a large portion of its members to
athletics. That they made good may be seen from the fact that the entire
tennis team was composed of juniors: that fourteen of them were stars on
the three basketball teams: and that several positions on the football and
baseball teams were filled by them.
Interclass championships in boys' and girls, basketball, and boys' and
girls' baseball are held by the class of 1925. They are also in afair way to
capture the tennis honors, for they boast of all the school's crop of GOOD
tennis players, and it is even possible that track honors will go to them.
A banner day in the history of the class occured on December 21, 1923,
when the Juniors published the Monthly Advance and afterwards held a
delightful Christmas luncheon party in their classrooms. Another event of
importance took place on the first day of February when the Student Body
was entertained in the gymnasium, with dances and games, by the '25
This good record was made possible largely because of the spirit with-
in the class, all students fighting their hardest to uphold the honorable tra-
ditions of the junior classes of the past. An illustration of the love which
they held for dear old A. U. H. S. is shown by the fact that but five of the
fifty-eight who enrolled in the class last August dropped out.

In August we started back to school with very different feelings from
those we had when we began the preceding year, for we were now sopho-
mores. There were seventy-three of us, and, at this time, we are very proud
of the fact that there are seventy-two of us left.
Our class officers for the firstnsemester were as followsr
President ----- Lois Usinger
Vice-President - Annie Dubrovich ,
Secretary-Treasurer - - - Oren Frankie
About two weeks after the beginning of school we initiated the fresh-
men who found out that we were not nearly so bad as they had expected us
to be. Following the initiation there was ai reception.
Later in the year we gave a Hallowe'en party at which everybody had
a good time. At this party old-fashioned games and dances were intermingled
with the modern dances. The result was that all so enjoyed themselves that
the other classes followed our example at their parties.
Our class has taken a prominent part in athletics, Oren Frankie, a member
of our class, being the boy's athletic manager.
The second semester we elected class officers again and the result was:
President ---- Nathaniel Evans
Vice President - Lucile Lewis
Secretary - Donald Inskip
Treasurer - - - Truman Wood

We're justa group of jolly sophomores, School is real, we are earnest,
Always ready for the fray, Working with a fervent will,
Work, athletics, entertainment. And departing, leave behind US.
All will help to win the day. Records to be proud of still.

The freshman class of 1923-24. entered with an enrollment of eighty
students. Miss Blanche McLaughlin was class teacher. and class officers
were elected as follows:
Versell Cole ---- f President
Eugene McClure - - Vice President
Merle McCann ----- Secretary-Treasurer
Merle McCann ----- President
Eugene Hessel ----- Secretary-Treasurer
The initiation was taken in good spirit. and by the end of the ye-ar, the
class as a whole has been loyal to its high school, and a credit to the com-
munity, in all branches of high school education.-
Socially, the freshman in general have succeeded insofar as it has been
possible for them to do so. That they have shown much interest in dramatics
is evident by the number of freshmen in the Sock and Buskin Club.
In February, the Freshman Class gave a 'very successful program and
an interesting "Advance", Songs were given by the "infants,' of the class,
and then a pantomine.
It is generally thought that the lot of the freshman is ahard one. True,
there are glory, power and achievements that they do not enjoy as do the
upper classmen, but there is always the fact which stands out plainly, and
encourages, namely, one must be a good freshman to be a credit to the next
class. In fact, this is true through all the classes and even after one is grad-
uated. A student who lives up to a standard that will do his school credit,
whether he be senior, junior, sophomore, or freshman, is doing his "bit",

E aul Farrar loved drawing. Ever since he could hcld a pencil he
AQ n. L Ah had drawn on everything he could find. Doors, windows, tables,
fit it and chairs, in the old homestead, still ltore witness 10 his child-
ish talent. Recently he had just come llack from a Paris art sch-
ool to Visit the old home town. How proud his father and mother were of
him! They tried to persuade him to open a studio in Milton where they
lived, but he wanted to go to New York to open his first studio, for, in
fancy, he could see a large, beautifully furnished room in which were pic-
tures, examples of his later work. Artcritics would come to pronounce him
a genius. Rich men would come to offer large sums for his drawings. Ah!
Yes! he would go back to New York. .
Paul Farrar did go back to New York and open a studio. but neither the
art critics came with their praises nor the millionaires with their money bags.
Even an artist can not exist on air and water for very long, and money has
a pecular way of leaking out of oue's purse. So with Paul. After a while
the money he had so carefully hoarded was gone. and he had about decided,
one afternoon, to give up and go back to his home town. He was aroused
from his melancholy thoughts by a knock at the door. His heart leaped to his
mouth. Perhaps some one had come to examine his pictures, and maybe buy.
When he opened the door a little man not more than five feet tall stood be-
"Is this the art studio of Herr Glicken?" asked the stranger.
"No", said Paul, "I am Paul Farrar, and this is my studio. However, I
should be pleased to have you come in to look at my w0rk.'l
"I am looking for Herr Glicken," said the strange man,',"but I have a
hobby for examining paintings, so I'll come in. "
He entered the room, and, as he did so, Paul noticeda new light come in-
to his eyes when they beheld Paul's masterpiece, entitled "At Dawn". Paul
also noticed a queer scar along the stranger's eyebrow. The man did not tell
his name, but Paul felt sure that from now on more people would come, for
surely this man had friends whom he would tell of this afternoon's experi-
The man looked at the paintings and praised them highly, but finally
said he would have to go. Paul offered to hunt up the rooms of Herr Glick-
en in the directory in the manager's office. He was gone about ten minutes,
b-it when he returned the -man had disappeared, and with him f'At Dawn, "
Paul's masterpiece. Paul immediately called the police, but they found that
little or nothing could be done and recommended that he go to the nearest
police station. The ride to the station took only a few minutes, but gave
Paul a chance to collect his thoughts.
As he entered the station he saw a man talking to the sergeant. 'At the
sight of the man Paul gave a start, and almost ran to the desk at which the
sergeant sat in order to get a good look at the man. Paul told his story, and
the sergeant introduced J. Scott Walters, captain of detectives, who talked to
Paul concerning the robbery. Paul said not a word for fully five minutes, but.
suddenly and without warning, he blurted out, "You are the robber." He
pointed to the detective who looked at him in amazement. '
"Has the loss so affected him as to make him insane?" Walters asked
in true alarm in his voice.
"I am not crazy, and I am not lying. You are the robber. You wear
the same clothes, you have the same shoulders, and, moreover, the same
queerly shaped scar is on your left eyebrow.l' ' .
Just as he uttered these words agirl about seventeen entered the sta-
tion house, and, at the sight of Walters, she came forward hurriedly.
"Oh, father," she exclaimed, "Mother andI were so worried over you.
Where have you been? You were supposed to be home this morning and you
acted so queerly when you left last night that mother suggested I come down
here and tell Sergeant Burton you were not home so that he and his men
could keep an eye out for you."
"If I was not home last night, where was I? I knowl was home, though,
for I just came from there and dropped in to talk with the sergeant a few
minutes, on my way to the office, when this man accused me of robbery."
"Oh! father you have done nothing rash. have you?" said his daughter,
at the same time leading him away while Paul and the sergeant stared in
The nexl day, as Paul Farrar, artist, sat in his studio, a knock was
heard at tl e - 2 n c dcor through which had entered the robber of yesterday.
Paul rose and answered the door. He recognized Miss Walters, who was
accompanied by an older woman who, he supposed, was her mother. Miss
Walters opened the conversation immediately. '
"My father suffers from mental lapses as aresult of a fall about twenty
years ago when he was in Paris studying to be an artist. It was at that
time that he received the gash which today appears as the scar over his left
eye. He disappeared from the view of friends, and arrived in New York
where he entered the detective service. Several times since,he has had lapses
when the artistin him would arise. Such a spell must have taken possession
of him yesterday and caused him to take the picture."
The incident was a fortunate one for Paul, because people flocked to
his studio, out of curiosity to see the picture which had disappeared under
such strange circumstances. For the first time since he had set up his studio
in New York, he oould write an encouraging letter to the folks at home,and
could pay his rent out of his own earnings. Best of all, however, was his
friendship for Miss Walters which promised to be something more in the

ong, long ago, before the vandals began to lay waste the wonder-
l i, ful forests that covered the hillsides, the Indians lived at peace
It ,, among themselves and at war with their neighboring tribes. Their
l wigwams of deerskin were plentifully stocked with dried deer
meat and fruits that they had dried in the warm sun, and all around were
evidences of peace and prosperity
- One day a stranger entered camp, a wez ry travel-worn old Indian. His
clothing was of a different make and material from any they had ever seen,
for he wore the dress of civilized men. His feet were scratched and bleed-
ing, and he was ready to fall from exhaustion and illness. On his back was
strapped a papcose, showing signs of hardship, but beautiful witha beauty
never before seen in this part of the country. Her eyes were large and
brown, her hair was dark and curly, and her features were different from
those of the Indians.
After making the universal sign of peace, the old man was brought be-
fore the chief and his council. He told briefly and to the point, for he knew
he had reached the end of his trail, what had brought him north. The tales
of the Spanish civilization farther south seemed incredible to these simple
wildpeople, but the old man told his story so feelingly that they could not
doubt it. His smail rancho had been seized by the baby's father, the mother
killed in the fight,and he had been driven out. He stole the baby so that she
would not suffer the same fate of the mother.
The old man finished his story, and gave the child to a woman to care
for. He gave her a small box and said, "This box is to be given to the child
when she is old enough to know that it is worth a great deal. Her name is
Nearly seventeen years passed by, and Mercedes still lived with the
Indians. Although she spoke no language but theirs, she knew that she he-
longed to a people that had settled far to the south. Many times she had
heard of the day when she was.brought by the old Indian. She had seen the
little curiously carved box, and had often wondered what was in it. But she
could not have opened it, if she had a desire to do so, because, unluckily,
there was no key.
One day a messenger came into camp. He was breathless with running
and excitement. He explained with haste, that a group of ragged men
were coming not far off. These people of the forest, unused to strangers,
were naturally suspicious of themg hence they awaited the coming of the
travelers with a feeling of hostility. I
, Just as the sun was sinking behind the hills a woe-begone procession of
six ragged men straggled in. They were pale, haggard, and hungry. After
they had made signs for food and drink, and had satisfied their ravenous
appetites, they laboriously told, by means of the sign language, that they
were the survivors of a ship wrecked on the coast twenty days before. During
that time they had spent their time in searching for food and indications of
One ofthe ship-wrecked men was a yo-mg Spaniard named Senor Fran-
cisco Jose de Galdas. He was always merry and ready for ajoke, and even
the hardships they endured could not dull his agreeable disposition. His cn-
couragements were all that had kept up the hope of the men after their mis-
fortune in being cast by the sea upon the shoresof that uncivilized country.
On aslender gold chain about his neck, he wore a key of brass that was
elaborately and delicately wrought. He wore it merely as a keepsake, he
said, because it belonged to his father's brother.
One day Mercedes noticed that the key was gone, and, thinking of her
carved box, she brought it to him. By means of signs she told him that she
wished to try the key on the lock of the box. Francisco laughed, but will-
ingly put the key into the lock, and strange to say, the key opened the box.
Within were some papers, and, in a smaller box, a few articles of jewelry,
a string of pearls, a ruby ring, and a curious old gold bracelet. Both were
astonished, but Francisco was still more astonished when he had read what
was written on the papers. By them he knew that Mercedes, the stolen
Spanish girl, was his cousin, and that she was heiress to large tracts of lands
in America and in Spain.
Nearly a year later Mercedes was in Madrid. To her, all that had hap-
pened in the year since she had left her woodland home was a wonderful
dream. She had begun to learn the Spanish language and other things that
were necessary for her to know. But despite her happiness and good for-
tune, she never forgot her early home and the people with whom she had

rs. Amelia Addington Smith, a thin woman with iron-grey hair,
l A sat in a straight-back chair in the severe Mid-Victorian drawing
room of her Fifth Avenue home, an anxious frown upon her
brow. Nervously she sat fingering her dress.
"What ever are we going to do?" she said to her daughter. Ethelinda,
who was reclining on the lounge.
Ethelinda, whose face was her only asset, looked up absently and said:
"Let her come. I guess".
"But who she is, other than her name, we do not know. lhave never
yet had a governess at one of my receptions. Ethelinda, you are no help to
me at all' 2
Then Mrs. Addington-Smith fell to pulling at her dress again.
Just as the silence was becoming oppressive, the butler entered with
the evening mail. Mrs. Addington-Smith glanced atthe headlines of the
"Hn,-mm, the novelist, Dolores Dolman, has disappeared. They have
no idea where she has gone, and leading literary circles are worried. If we
only had a celebrity to invite instead of Mrs. iVIarlin's governess. The
Marlins won't come without her, and we can't do without them, but how
I despise the thought of inviting a domestic--for she really is that, Ethel-
inda. Just to think of it' I know I shall be humiliated the whole evening.
Well, anyway we can be thankful that Sir Richard Winsdor has not failed us".
Ethelinda. who had listened with a tolerant air to all her mother said,
now rose lazily and offered. 1
"Let us dress for dinner, Mater. Your constant worry over that gov-
erness is quite tiresome. Iknow it is hard on us, but we shall have to
take a chancen.
The reception was set for December twelfth. That date had now
arrived. The day passed with Mrs. Smith and Ethelinda so busy in last
preparations that they thought little of the governness.
As Mrs. Smith and Miss Ethelinda were preparing to receive that night,
the former said:
"I suppose she will be poorly dressed. Did you ever see a governess
that was not? When she comes try to keep her out of sight.
Mrs. Smith had said, "Delighted to see you", and, "So glad you were
able to come". many times during the evening. The guests were all there,
including Sir Richard, but the Marlins, where were they? Mrs. Addington-
Smith showed signs of worry.
Finally they arrived in company with a very lovely woman. She was
beautifully dressed and had a gracious manner. Mrs. Marlin presented her
as "Miss Green". As the Marlins circled the large reception room, they
came upon Sir Richard. Mrs. Addington-Smith felt obliged to present Miss
Green. Sir Richard stared for amoment, then said: "So here you are, Dolores
Dolman. Don't tell me to stop, for you will be denying these people a great
pleasure if you do not let 'them know you".
Then Miss Dolman,feeling it was useless to resist, explained that she
was looking for local color for her new novel, and that one of her friends
had obtained for herasituation with Mrs. Marlin. "You see", she concluded,
"I thought that if I should go to one of my friends, she would not treat me
as a domestic. However, in one sense, Ihave been unfortunate in Mrs.
Marlin's home, for I have not found her different from any cf my friends
with respect to her treatmeant of me".
During' these remarks Mrs. Addington-Smith -was filled with deep re-
morse, and secretly resolved to put her prejudices aside in the future. How
thankful she was that she had listened to Ethelinda. and had taken a chance.

was the owner of the lumber camp.
Last summer he came back to the camp more boastful than ever because
he had just finished his first year of high school, ard thought he knew all
there was to know.
"There,s no reason for me to go back", he said, "I know more than the
"I don't believe you", I stated with biting scorn.
"You don't have to", he replied with a careless motion of his hands as
he walked, away.
"We've got to set him down a pegh, my brother fumed.
"Oh leave him alone", I scolded in a big sisterly way as I went into
the house. A
The next day I saw Will, my brother, whispering to several other boys,
but as soon as I appeared they all ran away. I saw the same thing happen
when John strolled by the group.
At dinner Will said that as the next pay was Saturday, all the school
children were going out in the woods to take a lunch, and that he wanted
me to put up one for him.
"You may go, too, if you'll fix it all nicew, he said condescendingly.
The next morning we set out. However, when we reached an old shack
at the end of the street, the boys lingered, saying that they were looking
for some ripe persimmons. Although I knew better than to think that there
were any ripe-ones, I thought that they would know enough to leave them
alone, so I continued to walk up the road. I was rejoined bythe boys later.
John came along, and they asked him if he wanted a persimmon. Now John
knew nothing about persimmons, except the ones that came in rilabon-tied
boxes which he bought for his mother. He greedily took the handful which
the boys offered him. They told him that the more he put in his mouth at
one time the better they tasted, so John put them all in at once. Never
before have I seen such a transformation, for, from aboastful braggart, he
became a doubled-up, 'groaning boy all in one minute.
Needless to say, John did not go to the picnic. After the experience
with the persirnmons he was decidedly humbled, and never again was he
heard to boast among any of us.
,sg rs. Bascom awoke to find the spring sun-shine streaming into her
l' ,IAQ little bedroom.
"Oh gracious mel How I have over-slept" she cried and
springing up, she dressed and ran down to get breakfast. "I
won't get all of my fruit canned today, I'm afraid," she complained to
Mrs. Bascom was called Grandma Bascom, not because she had zz y
grandchildren but because she was just like a grandmother to everybody.
She was perhaps fifty, but she was quicker and more sprightly than some
persons of twenty, and her sweet motherly expression won the hearts of all.
She lived alone. and, as far as any one in the village knew, she had no rel-
atives at all. Mr. Bascom had died several years after their marriage. Their
only son had grown to manhood, and was living happily with his wife when
both were taken, leaving an infant son to the care of the grandmother.
Never had Mrs. Bacom's mothereheart been so completely satisfied as
when the child grew from babyhood into a small boy of three. At this stage
he became very mischievous, and liked to run away. Always he had been
found, but there-came a time when search for him availed nothing.
"He would be ten now", Mrs. Bascom mused, the smile on her face
vanishing. "If he were here, I should be as happy asaqueen".
With such thoughts as these running through her mind, she worked all
morning until the already Clean house was cleaner than ever, if that were
possible. when she had finished her cleaning, she made some broth which
she took across the street to a little sick boy. She stayed and chatted with
him until nearly twelve o'clock. '
"Oh, dear me, just look how longI have stayedj' she exclaimed jumping
up and running home. '
"Now what is this?" she asked herself as she ran up the steps of her
little White house, for on the porch l'ty aboy of ten or eleven. He had a dirty
blood-stained bandage around his head, and his clothes were torn. "The poor
little thing, " she said in pity as she tugged and pulled him into her neat
kitchen where she put a clean bandage on his head. Then she put him to
bed, but when he did not regain consciousness, as she knew he should, she
called a doctor. After making an examination, the doctor said that the boy
had received a blow on the head and that his arm was bro ken. At length
the boy began to show' some signs of consciousness.
"Don't let them come,'7 he cried in fright. "They said they would arrest
me. I didn't do it".
"Never mind, never mind, " Grandma Bascom said. "We know you didn't
When the boy was able to be questioned Grandma Bascom asked him who
was going to hurt him.
."The police," he answered, "They said that I stole' fifty dollars from
a man that kept a fruit stand, but I didn't. You will believe me won't you?l'
he asked. "I like you, and you must believe me".
"There now. don't worry. Of course Ibelieve you, " she replied consol-
The next day two men came to her door. They asked for a boy named
"I don't know anybody by that name, " she said, "but there is a little
sick boy who came here yesterday. He is very ill, but, if he is the one yt u
want, you may see him."
"That is he", the men said when they had seen the boy. "He is the one
who took the money. We saw him leaving the standjust before the owner
called for the police."
"Well now, that's just too bad, " Mrs. Bascom exclaimed, "and he's
such a nice boy too. Some way, I don't believe he did it."
"Where are his clothes?" asked one of the men, ignoring her
statement. "We must examine them. I know he didn't spend the money
because we have been to every store in town, and no one saw him. He had
no chance to hide anything, so the money must be on his person."
"If you saw him and could get all those particulars, why didn't you
catch him?" Mrs. Bascom asked.
"He ran up a long, dirty alley with which he seemed fairly well ac-
quainted. At the end of the alley, he disappeared around a turn, but when
we reached it he had gone, and no amount of searching could bring any
clue of his whereabouts. It was nearly dark then, so we abandoned the
search until today. We have found him here, and now Imust go on with the
search,', said one of the officers as he stooped over the dirty, ragged clothes
of the boy. "The money is not here, so it must be in the house. Iam sorry,
but we shall have to look around in here to see if we can find it.l'
After about two hours the officers came into the room where Mrs.
"We found this," said one, showing her fifteen dollars that had been
in the old blue pitcher on the top shelf.
"That is the money that my garden brought last month, " she exclaimed.
Although the men did not refuse to believe her, Mrs. Bascom felt that
they were dissatisfied.
"Surely you donit think that I have hidden the money somewhere?".
She asked helplessly.
For answer the men departed, saying that they would return later.
After a week had passed Dick had improved so much that he was able
to sit up. One day Mrs. Bascom ventured to ask him where he had lived and
"I lived with a man down in an alley", replied Dick. "He was mean
to me, and often kicked me. The other day he kicked me so hard that he
knocked me down, and I hurt my head. After that I made up my mind to
"The day before you found me I had earned twenty-five cents, and, in-
stead of turning it over to the man, as he had always made me do. I went
to a fruit stand. I was intending to run away, but shortly after I left the stand,
l saw two policemen following me. I thought that they had found out that
I was leaving home, so I ran, and, seeing the little dormer window in your
house, I climbed up and stayed there all night?
"You poor thing," sympathized Grandma Bascom.
"The next morning about eleven, I started to get down. but my limbs
were so stiff that I fell, and I guess you know the rest. I don't know who I
am, only that the man that Istayed with called me Dick. All I have is
this, " he said, producing a small locket.
Mrs. Bascom took it and gasped as she gazed on the face therein.
"You are my own little Jack Bascomf' she cried. "Now, indeed, l'm as
happy as a queen. " .
Just then there wasa knock at the door, and the policeman of last week
"The boy is innocent, for we have found the real thief," they said.
Explanations followed on both sides with the result that the officers de-
parted, leaving a very happy pair in the little cottage.

Ewa rom the time he started to the West Union High School, John
if 5'-F, Wentworth had been a leader, not only in the social and athletic
F' -3-J the most advanced intellectually. Everybody foretold a wonder-
iw I.-ggsli life of the school but also in the class room, for he was by fan
f l u e for him.
Money was scarce, so, in order to be able to enter college, he decided to
go to work. But where in the West Union District could he earn enough
money to put him through? He must go to the places where money was
made. The praise he received from his fellow students had made him over
confident in his abilities, until he was certain that he could obtain a high
position and meet men high in the business world, without starting at the
Fairly bursting with self-confidence, he started from his home town
with his suit case in one hand, and some lunch put up by his mother, in the
other. His arrival 'was like that of thousands of other boys. After a few
days of futile effort to secure a position as bank president or railroad man-
ager, his self-confidence began to diminish like the small balance of money
in his pocket.
One day, with no money in his pocket for breakfast, with no place but
a park bench to sleep on, and when every thing in general looked as blue as
the water in his mot-her's washtub on Monday morning, he happened to pick
up a paper dropped by a fellow bench lodger, out of which he copied the fol-
"Wanted--Bright. energetic young man, with good appearance. No ex-
perience necessary. Apply 68 S. Broadway."
Not being wise in the ways of the unscrupulous, he made his appearance
at the number indicated. After a wait of fifteen minutes or more, he was
ushered into a large, well-furnished rooom, in the middle of which was a
long, highly-polished table. Seated at the table was a middle-aged man,
dressed in the most conservative of business dress. He merely raised his
eyes from his work as John was ushered in.
After what seemed an eternity, the man pushed aside his work, looked
up with a pleasent smile, and broke the coldness of his previous manner.
In a pleasant voice he questioned John, learning much of his character and
inexperience. Deep in his heart he hated to do what he was doing, but how
else could he meet the bills run up by his society-loving wife and modern
son and daughter? He very carefully mapped out his plan of action in order
that John would not suspect any dishonesty. He was supposed to run avery
successful real estate business, but that was only bluff, for he really con-
ducted a lottery. What he wanted John to do was to go from town to town,
draw a capital prize, and turn it in to the company. All expenses were to
be paid, clothing furnished, and the salary was to be one hundred dollars la
month. This seemed a very enticing oder, and John took it up without
All went well for several months. His seeming luck brought many to
invest their money in the wild-cat scheme, and his employer was overjoyed
at his brilliant success. ,
One month John happened to wander into a little town where there lived
many rich farmers who leased their outlying farms to others. Among the
latter class, John met an old man who was apparently wealthy. The latter
gambled incessantly, sometimes winning, sometimes losing, but always
seeming to have much money. His daughter, Eleanor, a very beautiful and
well-educated girl, showed a great fondness for-John. His early ambitions
which had been put aside by his life of ease revived and were stimulated by
her quick intelligence.
In the course of his stay in the town of Eleanor's father, John drew one
of his lucky numbers. The news spread rapidly in the little town, and nearly
everyone rushed to make an investment in the lottery. Among those who
wished to try his luck was Eleanor's father. He did not have the money,
and asked John for a loan. Of course John could not lend him the money
because he had to turn the prize back into the company. The old man' was
highly in.iigna..t, and Eleanor soon found out the strained freindship between
father and friend, and demanded an explanation. John, thoroughly sick of
his life of deceit, told her the whole story. Wisely she advised him to keep
on for a while longer.
ln the meantime, Eleanor put to work some clever detectives who ex-
posed John's employer without throwing too much blame on John. Eleanorts
fether helped him to finish his education, but the best lesson he learned
was from his experience, for it taught him that there are no short-cuts to

As it passes the house in its hurried flight,

And its singing and singing, "Pm coming to you"?
Away it goes howling 'and growling and swinging.

This year might be called the "Era of Good Feeling" in A. U. H. S.
Everyone seemed satisfied with the conditions that prevailed, for no heated
discussions ever occured and no opposition was given a single motion that
was presented. Whether this condition was due to a lack of momentous
questions to discuss or was due to adesire to maintain a spirit of unanimity,
we are unable to decide. We are sure,however,that it was not due to a lack
of school spirit, for much interest was displayed in all Student Body act-
ivities. The teams were well supported, especially basketball.
On account of the small number of students taking printing, the
Advances were not given every month. However, more extensive programs
were rendered. Several times the entire afternoon was devoted to an
Advance program, which consisted not only of numbers in which a few
students could take part, but con-slsted also of aprogram of games and
dancing in which all could participate and have a jolly good time.
Nearly all of our school parties were held in the afternoon this year.
This new plan met with considerable disfavor among the majority of the
students at first, but these affairs turned out to be such huge successes
that soon everyone looked forward to these afternoons of fun and frolic, in
which everyone had an opportunity to take part. Wall flowers have great-
ly decreased under this new plan.
The expenses of the Student Body were greatly reduced this year be-
cause of the new school bus, which was purchased by the trustees to convey
the students from the outlying districts. The bus was also used to transport
the athletic teams to the scenes of the conflict, thereby saving the Student
Body treasury the expenditure of several hundred dollars for the transpor-
tation of the teams.

h This club, organized to support the Student Body and to create more in-
terest in athletics, owes its existence to Mr. W. B. McKittrick. It was his
suggestion and through his efforts that the organization was accomplished.
Not only did McKittrick organize the letter club, but he also secured a beau-
tiful bronze shield for the organization.
This shield was, presented to the Student Body by President Leslie
Stromherg. The student who, during the year, has excelled in character,
courtesy, scholarship, and athletics will be selected by a process of
elimination. First, the "A Club" will submit to the faculty the names of
five or six members who have been especially prominent in athletics.
Second,the faculty will eliminate all but two or three highest in scholarship.
Third,the Student Body will vote on the names selected by the faculty.
Each senior in the organization will be presented with a sweater
having, on the front, a letter, and on the sleeve, a stripe for each year in a
particular branch of athletics. Those to receive sweaters at the end of this
year are: Frank Acorn, Clifford Berry, Ernest Henry, William Lundberg,
Alexander MacMillan, Clemens McClaskey, Michael Pontoni, Wanah Randle,
Lester Spellenberg, Leslie Stromberg, Paul Worthington, and Welton Worth-
Early in September all students interested in dramatic art met in Room
15 and re-organized a society that would discover and develop dramatic abil-
ity. Seven students responded to the call, and the name "Sock and Buskin",
by which the dramatic club of two years previous had been called, was
adopted. The officers elected were as follows:
Mary Estelle Preston ---- - - President
Monroe Spaght - - - - Vice President
J. Franklyn Davis ------ Secretary-Treasurer
Programs were provided for the regular meetings by students in turn.
The membership grew rapidly until by the end of the first semester it had
The organization was called on to present plays before the Student Body.
"The Obstinate Family", a very humorous one-act play showing how trivial
disagreements often become enlarged by the obstinacy of all concerned, was
the first play presented. The cast was composed of Kathleen Anderson,
Clemens McClaskey, Mary Estelle Preston, Monroe Spaght, Ruth Brown,
and J. Franklyn Davis.
"A Pair of Lunatics" was the next presentation by the Dramatic club.
The characters were portrayed by Lorna Cochrane and J. Franklyn Davis,
who took their parts exceedingly well.

It is interesting to note that with one exception the cast of the Taming

point in favor of the club's continuance, in that it has accomplished its

when Coach Mcxiurick issued the can
for men. Prospects for a championship

After the team had practiced for several weeks,
and after McKittrick developed the squad into good
shape, he secured several practice games in which
the local squad won.
The second practice game, at Arcata, on September 21, proved another vic-
tory for the local squad, for they defeated the invaders from the Del Ncrte
County High School by a score of 48 to 0. The invaders played a hard game,
and showed good spirits, but they were no match for the local squad.

The first game of the season, at Ferndale, on October 6, proved to be
very thrilling and exciting, although the Arcata team lost by a final score
of 49 to 20. With the exception of the second quarter, neither side had an
advantage over the other, since each scored three times. We met our defeat
in the second quarter when the attacks of the Red and White proved too much
for the Arcata squad.

The second game of the season, at Fortuna, on October 13, resulted in a
victory for the White and Blue. The Fortuna team showed much pep for a
light aggregation, and one can see from the results that they must have been
in good condition, because they trimmed the Acrata boys to a 34 to 6 defeat.

The third game of the season, at Arcata, on October 20, was one of the
hardest fought games of the season. Arcata lost to Eureka by a score of 31

but in the second half the Red and Green piled the score upon the Black and

The fourth game of the season, at Arcata, on October 27, resulted in
another defeat for the Black and Gold from the "league-leading" Ferndale
aggregation. Outlooks were favorable for Arcata at the end of the first half,
because she held the Ferndalians to aclose score, but, in the second half,
Ferndale came back with grave determination, and heaped a score of 47 to
7 upon the Arcata team.

The fifth game of the season, at Arcata, on November 3, marked the
only league victory for the Black and Gold. In this game the Black and Gold
had the Blue and White at their mercy. The result of the game was 14 to
6 in favor of Arcata. Fortuna made a touchdown after the game was over,
their play being in motion when the whistle blew.

The last game of the season. at Eureka, on November 10, was a very hard
and rough one. The Arcata team played a good game, but was defeated by
Eureka. This game was said to be one of the roughest games of the season,
but, in spite of the fact, there was good playing on the part of both teams.
The score was 25-10.

The old players, Eva Stephens, Jeanne Brett, and Margaret Thompson
played up to their usual standards, and the new material on the team was
highly satisfactory. In fact the team work between the old and the new
players was one of the factors that won for them second place inthe H.C. I.L.
It was a good basketball year for the county, 'ind the players of the Girl's
Team, and their coach of Arcata High have a right to feel satisfied that they
creditably contributed their share of the sports.
The season opened when, on November 16, 1923, the Eureka and Arcata
teams met at Arcata gymnasium. The Black and Gold was defeated by a
score of 33-16. The local girls played a good game, but were simply out-
ciassed by the Red and Green.
The next game, however, was won by Arcata by a score of 20-15. This
game also took place at the local gymnasium. There was a gocd-sized and
very enthusiastic crowd. The players of both teams played for all they were
worth, making it an interesting game. Ferndale showed good team work.
Marie Stromberg, Susie Banducci, and Jeanne Brett were the stars,
Marie showing noticeable ability at her position of guarding. This was her
first game, and she did herself credit. From then on she was permanent
December 7th saw a second game played with Eureka, and it was the
same story as before--Arcata lost. though the score this time was 33-16--not
quite so bad.
The Black and Gold was again victorious when it defeated the Fortuna
team by a score of 18-9. The game was played at the Fortuna High School
gymnasium on December 14th.
This game was the last of the season and determined first place for Eu-
reka and second place for Arcata. Here's hoping the Black and Gold comes
in first next year!

succeeded in turning out a fairly good squad. Some of
the games were lost by close scores and allof them were
hard fought. '
The first game of the season was played on our own
court with Ferndale. Our boys started scoring early and
piled a lead of five points on their opponents by the end
of the first half. They came back strong in the second 1
half and succeeded in holding the Cream City lads score-
less. At the end of the game the score stood 12-5 in --T - -1

The second game of the season was also played on our court, Fortuna
being the opponent. This game appeared to be very rough and was similar
to a football game. The Blue and White cagers proved to be too much for the
locals and walked off with the game by a score of 14-7. The locals allowed
the visitors to get a lead on them which the home team could not overcome.
Our boys, on the following week, journeyed to Eureka to play with their
old-time rivals. The game proved to be very exciting and interesting through-
out. At thd end of the first half our boys held the Eurekans toa 2-0 score.
Eureka, in the second half, came back determined to win. She began caging
the ball and at the end of the game she was leading by a 10-2 score.
The team invaded the Cream City the following week and won its second
victory of the season by a score of 12-8. At the end of the first half, our
boys were leading by a score of 6-1. Our team in former games seemed to
weaken in the last half, but in this game the boys of the Black and Gold
kept up the good work of the first half and won a very exciting game.
The following week the team journeyed to Fortuna. The Blue and White
had a very strong team, but were held toa 2-2 tie in the first half. In the
second half, the Fortunans had no pity on us, and scored at will. In this half
they scored fourteen points to our one, and won the game by a 16-3 score.
In the last game played against Eureka the local boys showed unexpect-
ed strength, and held the Red and Green cagers to a score of 6-5. The Eu-
rekans were held to a 2-0 score in the first half. The locals came back strong
in the second half, and wereleading up to the last few minutes of play when
a Eurekan caged one from the middle of the court, putting his team in the
lead and keeping it throughout the rest of the contest.

he 1923-1924 C. I. L. basketball season was one
of the most successfull of recent years, both from
a standpoint of games won by our teams and
AL from the great spirit with which the Arcata fans
backed them. In many instances the teams came through
with victory not because of any particularly brilliant plays
on their part, but because of the fight that was instilled in
them by the cheering of the loyal fans.
From the very outset the unlimited team proved a winner,
taking game after game owing to remarkable teamwork and
strategy. Not content with the winning of the H. C. I. L.
championship, the team was entered in the Northwestern
California Basketball Tournament, held under the auspices of
the Humboldt State Teachers' College, and emerged triumph-
ant with three games won and none lost, bringing their total
victories up to seventeen with but three losses. Much of the
credit for this remarkable showing is due to Coach ivIcKit-
trick, who welded what otherwise might have been a very
mediocre team into one of championship caliber.
The second Northwestern California Basketball Tournament was held
in this city on February 29 and March 1. Eight teams participated, and all
games were played in Firemen's Hall. The following teams were entered:
Arcata, Ferndale, Fortuna, and Eureka from Humboldt County: Ukiah.
Fort Bragg, and Mendocino City, from Mendocino County: and Rogue River
from southern Oiregon. V

The next contest was with Ferndale, and a very good game was the rc-
sult. At half time the locals were leading by a 7-2 score, but towards the
latter part of the game we were closely pressed by the Ferndalers. The final
score was 13-11. As a result of the victory our team was to participate in
the championship game.

The championship game was played on Saturday evening, Feb. 1, before
the largest crowd which ever witnessed a basketball game in Arcata. For-
tuna was the team Arcata was to meet.
From the very outset the contest proved a thriller. Brilliant defensive
work featured the playing of both teams throught the first half, the score
standing at 4-2.
The second half was featured by remarkable basket shooting, both
contestants scoring somewhat freely. First one team was in the lead and
then the other. With but a few minutes to go and Fortuna leading 13-10,
our boys, by a marvelous spurt, managed to take the lead which they held
to the end. The final score was 14-13.
Arcata carried off the Spaldimg Basketball Trophy and with it the title
of Champions of Northwestern California, and Southern Oregon.

This contest proved to be one of the best of the year, the score at the end of

The last game of the regular season was played here against Eureka on
Feb. 22. Again the two rivals battled on an even basis, the score standing
at 14 all at the end of the regular periods. Again we scored one point as the
result of a free throw, but Eureka was not to be outdone, for one of her for-
wards threw a field goal just as the whistle blew and won the game for her
by the score of 16-15.

hard, they were defeated by a score of 11-5.
The next game was played in Ferndale, and our

The third game of the season proved to be more
successful. Jean Brett pitched a fine game, and had
good support in the field. At the end of the ninth inn-

A fine team was expected to be put in the field
as all of the previous se-ason's infielders, the catcher, and
one of the outfielders were back in the fold. From the
very outset the pitching staff caused worry, because two
new hurlers had to be developed to take the position left
vacant by Green and Pritchett.
A practice game was played with EHS, March 25, and
was won by the invaders by ascore of 9-5. Steffanini and
Malloy were the battery for the winners. Acorn, McClure

the opposing team. Up to the eighth inning, Eureka had all the best of it,
leading at that time by a score of 6-3. In the last half of the eighth, how-
ever, the Eurekans "blew up" completely and the locals scored eight runs
on a series of hits, errors, wild pitches, and passed balls. As the invaders
scored but one run in their half of the ninth,the game went to us bya
score of 11-10.

victory, taking the game by the one-sided score of 15-5.
'T n the physical education
departments of the coun-
ty there was held a con-

took part. The events were as fol-
lows: 100 yd. dash, 100 yd. low hur-

ent. events were given. These hav-
ing been ascertained from a table
in the book, "Health by Stunts":
For instance, to get the highest
number of points possible 110001 the
boy must high-jump six feet.
Out of all the boys in the phy-
sical training classes in our high

taken the meet easily, but this year our team was not so
strong. The reason for this may be in the fact that only
one out of the champion team of 1923 was left, Frank
Acorn, who won the all-participation contest in the county
this year, did splendid work in the meet by tying Rease
of Ferndale for first place in the pole vault and taking '

I. THE JOURNEY
From the town of Arcata a right goodly team
Down into the Land of the 'Eurekans went,
For a Match of Wits and a Match of Strength,
In the Annual Tennis Tournament.
Four goodly Youths and three fair maids,
Composed that gallant Band:
Laurel-bearing Mickey, of the Tribe of Lima,
Those Youths and Maids had in command.
Tuohey, of the Blue Lake. and Groom, of the White City
The team of Doubles did compose.
Susie, of the Banducci, and Reuben, of the Andersons,
High in Hopes and brave in Hearts arose.
Last but not least, came a Pair of fair Maids,
Their Racquets born well with the gentlest poise:
The Twin-Threats of the House of Brett were they,
Renowned for its robust and athletic young Joys.
Il. THE WATCHERS
Sitting in the Mob with Anxiety in Hearts,
Sat Fathers of Tribes and Leaders of the Clan.
Students. of the A. U. H. S., sat gravely intent,
Their gazes directed down where the Battle began.
III. The Battle.
A Trumpet-call! To Racquet! To Racquet!
The Battle was on with a thundering blast!
Hot and cold waged the Conquest for hours that Morn.
But. ever with Fierceness and Zest to the last.
The Red and Green Victors their war cries did give
While the Vanquished arose from the dust of the Lists.
And returned to their Tribes over anxious with waiting
For news of the con-iuest since early rising mists.
But the ever-bright Arcatans their Heads proudly held,
That they fought the lost Fight with Valor.
Were glad to have given their Rivals so ancient,
A Fight in which there was no Pallor.

' j QQ.,gj first of the interclass athletics of the year was witnessed when
L, the four classes competed in basketball. The seniors were picked
to win, but to the surprise of allthey were defeated by the juniors
I f Qzlfzi 6-5. The game was hard fought, and the seniors seemed to be on
top until Tuohey won a perfect goal by a long shot. This championship put
the juniors ahead for the interclass cup.
Previous to this game the seniors had won an easy victory over the soph-
omores, the score being 8-0. The juniors had also won in a preceding game
from the freshmen, 15-1.
The first game of the boys' interclass series was between the juniors
and seniors. The seniors, due to the fact that they possessed all but two of
the"hi" nine, were counted on to win. However, this did not prove to be
the case, for the juniors got only two hits off Acorn, the senior pitcher, but,
with three outfield errors, they won the game bya score of 6-4. The juniors
presented a well-balanced team. Acorn pitched a very good game for the
The second game gave another surprise when the "freshies" defeated
the sophmores, 6-1. The hitting and fielding of "Billie" Caston, abbreviated
freshman second-bagger, and the hitting of Gambi featured. Capt. Nat
Evans featured for the Sophomores.
The third and deciding game of the series was between the freshmen
and juniors. The juniors won by a score of 6-1. The feature of the game
was that the two opposing pitchers were brothers, Gene McClure, of the
"fresh" team, and Vincent McClure, of the juniors.
Btt-ause of the fact that the baseball men had an unusually long season,
:in in .erclass track meet was postponed until too late to have the results
recorded in this publication. ,
For some reason there was no interclass tournament this year. Every-
one seemed to be too busy. However, we hope this will not be overlooked
next year when we have our courts.

As you may well see, we have here above
A picture of a lady and a Ford ever true.
The Lady was always our teacher and friend.
And the Ford--well thats surely known to you.
To you--Miss Gallagher--we say goodbye,
May your journey be pleasant and happy.
And may your road be smooth and straight.
So that Henry will be a good Ford---maybe!
This entire book, except covers, printed by the
printing department, Arcata Union High School.
