"I favor the policy of economy, not because 1 wish to save money but be- cause I wish to. save people. The men and women of this country who toil are the ones who bear t'he cost of the Govern:nent. Every dollar that we carelessly waste means that their lfe will be so nmch the more meager. Ev- ery dollar that we prudently save means that their life will be so nmch the more abundant. Economy is ideal- ism in its most practical form... The wisest and soundest method of solving our tax problem is througlt economy." --Calvin Coolidge. ------- :o:-- On Wednesday afternoon of last week, just too late to get his arrival in the issue of March 1, a gray whale, estimated to be seventy feet long, made its appearance in Avalon Bay, just in from Pebbly Beach. ,While there it halt a companion, but because of bashfulness or for some other rea- son it did not "choose" to visit Ava- h)n waters. He spent about an hour in the bay, making things interesting for the onlookers, many of whom went out on the Pleasure Pier to watch the big fellow. Men on the government survey boat "Romance" tried to lasso the gay visitor, but with a flip of his tail that would have mashed the boat had it been near enough, the leviathan departed. It was quite a sight for many of the vis- itors, as they had never seen one be- fore. SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS H. S.
