Both would be strangers in new qiaarters. Would that help them in training? The Chicago Cubs started out very well the day following their arrival in Los Angeles.

Manager Dick Scollin of the Hotel St. Catherine, gave the Chicago Cubs and their friends a fine farewell din- ner on Wednesday evening of last Strolling 'Round Avalon No=an Wall Direct from the Avenida La Cres- centa : Many old-timers wonder what kind of wometl the young fellows are going to have when this modern generation grows up. Girls today lead a differ- ent and freer life than their sisters of the past generations. It's a much sim- pler life, too, not hedged about by so many rules and restrictions and tradi- tions. Is it possible that when they become older and settle down they will fall into the Professors' four categor- ies ? I'm more inclined to think they'll knock that list sky high. They'll all have a touch of the mas- culine as the result of their craze for sports. They'll all have a touch of the worldly, because they've been fed on the depression and have been brought up on dollars They will have to be more or less brazen-faced to beguile a young man inter marriage, because the modern young man 'seems to be quite a dumb-bell. And the maternal in- stinct is not going to die out. And, speaking of youth, I would like to imbed in the minds of the young man of today, who range at the age of 12, 16 or over, that nearly all boys are predatory, and have not yet acquired the balance between right and wrong That's why I say a young man is quite a dumb-bell. There are things going on here that are not up to the standard of the youngsters that I thought were ace high. We have a Scout troop, which builds good citizens, and someone should promote a boys' club, where the young mind can be trained touse- fuhtess. The athlete is always a gen- tleman and seldont a crintinal. This, however, is a good thing for every parent to remember, and have an un- derstanding with their chihtren. Uncle Norman's Notebook We are about to enter into another month--April. This fourth month was called Ooster, or Easter, month by the Anglo-Saxons, and Grass month by the Dutch. All Fools Day comes the first of April, when it is customary to play tricks on one's friends. In Scotland, the victim is called a "Gowk" (Cuc- koo), in France "un poisson d'Avril (an April fish). The custom is of un- known antiquity. After this colmnn stated that the first great orchestra this season would be Kay Kyser, it has been asked who the second would be. From the infor- mation received,-it will be our very good friend, Jan Garber. "Zizz" Black, the proprietor of the local "Top Deck", last week held the position as M. C. at the Los Angeles Paramount Theater, and they report that he was very good. Danny Downing and Mrs. Downing have departed to continue their theat- rical career. They will appear at the Los Angeles Orpheum Theater in the near future. Mrs. Downing is a very clever (lancer and known as Sharon Lee. Danny wilt be a singer and M.C. of stage and radio.

Roger Pryor, one of last summer's bands of the Island, was slated for a come-back, but broke up his orchestra temporarily after completing a week at a Chicago Theater. He returned to California with his wife, the motion picture star Ann Sothern. His band will again be organized in the late summer. The two sons of Mr. and Mrs. Sher- man Smith are expert cooks. Their skill to concoct a delicious meal is an art all their own.
