The local high school basketball team will play their first game of in- terscholastic ball on Saturday after- noon of this week, when they meet the Franklin Junior High School of Long Beach. The Franklin Junior High is a much larger organization than. our local school, and it will be interesting to see what our boys can do. The game will be played on the Cat- alina Country Club tennis courts at 1:30 p. m., as the Long Beach boys must catch the afternoon boat. It is hoped that the citizens of Avalon will continue their support of our team and make organized athletics a reality in our high school.
