PAGE TEN THE CATALINA FOUR-YEAR REGIONAL COLLEGES ARE OPPOSED Members of the California State Legislature are reviewing the report of the State Council on Educational Planning and Co-ordination, a new printing of which has been completed. The law-makers thus are considering officially the findings of an important advisory body appointed under author- ity voted by the Legislature itself. The purpose of the plan outlined in the report, developed with the unani- :nous approval of the Planning Coun- cil in 1935, is to preserve the most ef- fective and most economical relation- ship between the State University, the jumor colleges, and the teachers col- leges. The report strongly opposes expansion of teachers colleges into four-year regional colleges. It does not give approval of junior colleges assuming that status. The members of the Planning Coun- cil are Will C. Wood, chairman; Chas. Albert Adams, Allen T. Archer, Annie Florence Brown, Mrs. William J. Hayes, Vierling Kersey, Gurney E. Newlin, Chester H. Rowell and Robert Gordon Sproul. Opponents of the creation of a chain of four-year colleges in California are urging thorough consideration of the Planning Council report, because bills now before the State Legislature pro- pose establishment of new tax-sup- ported four-year colleges or univ'ersi- ties in several parts of the State, add- ed to present facilities in higher edu- cation. This would involve needless duplication, it is charged, and would saddle the State with excessive ex- pense. The Statewide Committee on Higher Education, of which John L. McNab is Chairman and Aubrey Dru- ry is Secretary, is 'among the organi- zations active against the creation of a chain of four-year regional colleges, urging that voters communicate with their State Legislators, requesting them to oppose such proposals and to uphold the report of the Planning Council. o- Civil Service Examinations Announced The United States Civil Service Commission has announced open com- petitive examinations as follows: Junior graduate nurse, $1,620 a year.

So far as can .be noted the light frosts of the unusually cold winter have had very little effect upon the flowers and delicate plants in and around Avalon.
