Sometimes, as in this case, all cat- erpillars obserxed are mov'ing nearly in the same direction although the conditions ahead may be really bad for them. Having no way of getting long distance information we nmst suppose that that is just one of the risks that they must take and that the ordinary results are good even though the one we see h)oks bad. For example, this movement to l:igher ground )nay be good in most cases for a species feeding in low ground. After all, are caterpillars any less successful than human beings in looking for a place to settle ? Surely no caterpillar is more erratic in his wanderings than one of us when he starts to find some- thing in a terrible hurry without knowing exactly where to look for it. -O AVALON PUBLIC LIBRARY Avalon Branch of the Los Angeles County Public Library, in Atwater Arcade, is open every week day from 1:30 to 4:30 and 7 to 8:30 p.m., Mrs. MacRae, Librarian. -O UNITED STATES POST OFFICE Incoming mail reaches Postoffice at 12:30 p.m. Outgoing mail closes at 3:45 p.m. The Post Office is open daily except Saturday mornings and holidays from 8 A.

WHITE DENTISTRY X-RAY TELEPHONE I 25 CATALINA HOSPITAL / - I CHRISTIAN SCIENCE CHURCHES The Christian Science Lesson-Ser- mon on Sunday was on the question, "Are Sin, Disease, and Death Real?" ]'he same Lesson-Sernlon was pre- sented at Christian Science Society of Avalon, branch of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Mass.; and the Golden Text was from Jeremiah : "The Lord hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he." A Bible selection in the Lesson- Sermon, from the Psahns, stated: "The steps of a good nlan are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way." Verses from the Lamentations of Jeremiah included the statements: "I called upon thy name, O Lord, out of the low dungeon... Thou dr,west near in the day that I called upon thee: thou saidst, Fear not. O Lord, thou hast pleaded the causes of nay soul; thou hast redeemed my life." Among the passages from the Chris- tian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures,' by Mary Baker Eddy, were the state- ments: "Rise in the strength of Spirit to resist all that is unlike good. God has made man capable of this, and nothing can vitiate the ability and power divinely bestowed on man." .o- CHRISTIAN SCIENCE RADIO PROGRAMS 8:15 a.m., 8th, 18th and 28th of mo., KFI, Los Angeles.
