AVALON PRIMARY SCHOOL My dear boys and girls: The next story hour will be on Sat- urday, April 19th, when you will hear more of Peter Pan and the pirates. Next Saturday there will be no story; but do not forget to come on the following Saturday, April 19th, if you wish to hear how Wendy and her brothers came down to the "Never- Never-Land," and what they did there.

It is a big help in our school work." delightful old gossip, finds it hard to get the news because of her handicap; but that doesn't matter, does it ? What she does hear she gets wrong, and what she doesn't hear she makes Up. True to life, isn't it? Can you imagine Bob Garcia as a red-haired man ? A little henna, pres- to, he's it! And as a songbird he is no Caruso; but he makes the other one step some. His cheerful, happy- go-lucky nature belies the common op- inion of red-heads. Did you know that Fred McKelvey smokes a clay pipe? It's remarkable what hidden talents a play will bring out! Worse yet, as James Ryan he is accused of using unlicensed tobacco. Sh! This is only in the play. Carl Eddy, as Shawn Early, likes to carry news, too; but at least he has heart enough to hope that everything he passes on is not true. Tom, as Tim Casey, is a "knock- out." He unwittingly starts all the gossip, and keeps the ball rolling on a well-greased board. Far be it from him to be satisfied with a sketchy out- line of the gossip--no--his soul craves detail. Catherine, as Mrs. Tully, is more of a gossip than she looks in every-day life; the subtle, catty kind, who cheer- fully does her part to spread the news about the village. To see a man hang- ed is her idea of a day well spent. Renew your straw hat with this easy-to-apply Hat Dye. Comes in 14 different colors, each bottle with a brush, ready to be used, no mixing.
