Otto Wieben was elected the new Commander of Catalina Island Post 137, American Legion. Life is a funny proposition after all. There are some people holding their rents a little too high for the people that occupy the Island at present. Perhaps it's all or nothing at all.

But I wonder why people let their dog bark ahnost all night without stopping it. It should seep into the minds of the owner that barking disturbs others while trying to sleep.

Avalon has the c~ld- est winter it has had for many" years. 1943 has been a freak year all thru the United States, and 1944 has started the same way.

A pert girl with a chic of a postage stamp hat ambuscading one eye stood on the Crescent and Sumner corner awaiting her answer to a maiden's prayer. Several Mart- timers passed with gazes which she haughtily i znorcd and finally one suggested "something in a silken voice." Glaring coldly, she sniffed: "You'll need madnmney if you make a elate with me, Mack. She met her date and strolled away with a trainee. The Mack retorted, maybe the train- ee is lucky and maybe he ain't.

We were to com- mence discharging our cargo for Lis- bon, immediately, so I first had to hell) remove the tarpaulins and hatch cov- ers so the stevedores could start work as soon as they arrived aboard. It was a warm day, as we soon learned when we started tossing the hatch covers around and making everything ready far discharging car- go. We worked fast, for we all wanted to get ashore as soon as pos- sible. Soon the first of the graceful, sail- bearing lighters appeared abeam of us and tied up alongside. The steve- dores clambered aboard and, after exchanging friendly greetings, sat clown to wait 4or the other lighters to arrive. Two more lighters pulled alongside a short time later, made fast their lines and prepared to receive our cargo. As soon as the winch-men swung the first bales of cotton over the side onto the lighters, Mr. Gaughan came over to me and asked K I would like to knock off work and go ashore. I assured him that I was most anx- ious to get ashore and see something of Lisbon, so he told me that I could wash up, have chow and go ashore with several of the other crew mem- bers. "Sparks" and the passengers had already gone ashore, so I went in The Golden Text in the Lesson-Sermon on ,Sa. crame branches of the Mo.;her The First Church of Chris| in Boston, was from John "The bread of God is he which eth down from heaven, life unto the world." , "Children, have ye any ed Jesus of his disciples at the~' Tiberias after his cording to John's Gospel. wered him, No." jesus said, the net on the right side of and ye shall find.
