FLAG SYMBOLIZES BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA The flag of United States is a symbol of our country and all it rep- resents. One of the many great things our flag represents is Scouting. Let's look at the flag from our Scouting viewpoint. The white stripes are all scouts with their clean, fresh desire to learn, be with the best of others, and still stand out in their own individuality. The red stripes can represent the parents, who have given their sons the blood of inheritance, the closeness of constant support, the brilliance of visible good example and distinction of encouraging self-reliance. The blue field represents the Scouting organization wh its d principles and high ideals bound together with sound praces servit a teaching and supporting background. The white stars are Scout leaders---all those who promote the inter- est of Boy Scouts, guide them in self-leadership, brighten the way to their growth, and illuminate the goals to constructive manhood.

Plein Air refers to paintings which are executed outdoors, generally quizkly, in an attempt to capture a certain mood, atmo- sphere and light. The term was coined in the 1870s and many talented artists captured stunning California land- scapes during the 1880s through the 1930s. This exhibition is sponsored by the Society for the Advancement of Plein Air Painting which has played a seminal role in the re- invigoration of this impressionis- tic style of painting on the Island. Today no one can argue the beau- ty and artistry of this spontaneous, open-air art form and the Museum is pleased to be able to hold this annual show in celebration of Catalina and plein air art. For more information, call (310) 510-2414 or visit www. The Catalina Island Museum is dedicated to preserving and sharing the cultural heritage of Santa Catalina Island.

Saltwater From page 1 about 20 years. The vault, which holds all the equipment, is located underground and is covered by four unique concrete panels, which in turn are covered by the brick pavers that are used throughout the front street. One of the panels contains an access door that allows wo'k- ers to enter the vault, to perform maintenance and repairs. During construction, it was determined that the panel contain- ing the access door was so dete- riorated that it too needed to be replaced. As this was not initially planned the entire project took a few weeks longer than originally estimated. The door/panel combi- nation wasbuilt at Jmisoll'S In (rarlge "lJounty .and lnstad this week. In addition to all the repairs and replacements at the intake sta- tion, the city also renovated one of the pumps that was taken out of service and is in the process of purchasing a rebuilt, spare motor. Once purchased, the city will have a spare pump and motor "on the shelf" in case ofa faiture  flle i vault.  - All the needed equipment and labor for the project will total about $150,000 and will be paid for by funds saved up for this pur- pose in the saltwater fund.
