INTERESTING PROGRAM BY AVALON RESIDENTS The Hawaiian entertainment pre- sented at the Atwater Hotel on Thurs- day evening of last week was a com- plete success, both as an entertain- ment and its financial result. It was arranged by the young men's class of the Congregational Sunday School, taught by Mrs. D. M. Renton, which had agreed to pay for the new electric lighting fixtures for the church, includ- ing both the auditorimn and the Sun- day School room. The total receipts were $102--slightly more than the cost of the fixtures. The young men of the class found local talent ready to co-operate with them in their efforts, and the program offered proved a splendid variety of entertainment. First came a steel guitar duet, of Hawaiian airs, by Messrs. Alex Adar- go and Frank Arce--and the audience would not permit their leaving until they had responded to a couple of encores. Messrs. Pete Adargo, C. N. Cunning- ham, "Scotty" Brown and Lee Renfroc, the male quartette, also were kept busy responding to "recalls." Miss Irene Moricich and her sister, Mrs. Madaline Roadhouse, whose voi- ces used frequently to be heard when "Avalon Thursday Night" was a fea- ture of winter life on Catalina, sang delightfully, and could not escape a recall. The colored steropticon views, shown and explained by Rev. LaRue C. Wat- son, were an attractive exhibit. Haw- aii has many points of beauty, and the reproductions from photographs portray them faithfully. On the walls of the room were many other pictures of scenes in this tropi- cal part of Uncle Sam's domain, and there was quite an array of curios from the islands displayed on tables. CARD OF THANKS The young men's class of the Con- gregational Church wishes to convey its thanks to all who so cheerfully took part in the program on Thursday evening, April llth, and also to all who attended or in any other way contrib- uted to the success of the entertain- ment. Young Men's Class. THE GITCHE GUMEE CAMP FIRE GIRLS MEET The Gitche Gumee Camp Fire Girls held their regular weekly meeting last Friday evening. After the business meeting, conducted by President Myr- tle Gibson was finished, the Camp Fire elected as honorary members Mrs. Wood, Edythe Stone and Florence Feltrop, and discussed plans for enough new members to fill the quota allowed them by headquarters. The social meeting was turned over to Mary Gibson. Pieces of handwork were given each girl as the beginning of a Camp Fire hope chest, to be drawn on later for needful purposes. While the girls sewed, Mrs. Stone, the Guardian, discussed plans for a near future Council Fire, to be given to "Our Mothers." Songs were practiced and ideas exchanged. . The new library for the Camp Fire had its birth at this meeting and start- ed with a few new books. All it needs now is more bookstand shelves to put them on in a dear little Camp Fire cottage by the ocean. Watch us get it! We'll need your help! JACK SCHIEBUSCH ILL A report has reached Avalon to the effect that Mr. Jack Schiebusch, mas- ter mechanic for Boos Brothers cafe- ' terias, is very ill at his home near Whittier, California. For many years Mr. Schiebusch has been very closely associated with Avalon and its people, and the Catalina Islander has been asked by a number of Avalonites to. send to the "Schiebusch Family, at Rivera, "sincere wishes for Jack's speedy recovery." We--we do--with the hope that Jack will get so angry --wherc he reads this--that he will foi'- get all about his illness! Thank you, Jack. Now smile! PROGRESS IS THE WORD The Hoover Bakery and Cash Gro- cery, in the Atwater Hotel building, on Sumner avenue, directly opposite the Strand Theatre, was opened for business Saturday.
