D. M. RENTON "Cabbages," and "The Pretty Farm- er's Daughter," have been proclaimed by the some two hundred fifty who saw them, as two big successes. They were presented Wednesday evening by the Senior class and the Senior Dra- matics club at the Riviera Theatre "The Pretty Farmer's Daughter." the first play of the evening, provod to be very humorous and imaginative. The actors all played their parts es- pecially well, .and Dick W'elsch is to be commended for the work he did. "Cabbages," presented last, was the main feature of the evening. The stu- dents taking part were handicapl,.~d by a Dutch accent, which they .-eally carried off very well. The whole cast is to b~ complimented on the good work they did. The Girls Glee Club is also to be thanked for the lovely music which it gave. The girls looked especially well in their new white outfits. The orchestra numbers were also very well executPd. A. H. S.

There has been a Torqua ,every year since, which has been put out by the Junior and Senior classes. This yaar's Torqua is well under way. Miss Coppock and the staff have worked very hard to make it a success.

James L. and Giovanni Vai of Los Angeles have the distinction of plac- ing the first long distance telephone call from Southern California to Italy. Th.e call, which lasted about seven minutes and covered a distance of more than 2,250 miles, was made on the occasion of a reunion of the Vai family in Turin. The brothers talked to their, sister, and other rel- atives. Last week Herbert Brenou talked 48 minutes to William Le Baron from Copenhagen, Denmark, running up a tel.ephone bill of $984. :o: In a statement to the public today, and directed as well to the 40,000 members of the California Teach.ers Association, Joseph Marr Gwinn, pres- ident of the association and superin- tendent of schools of San Francisco, urges co-operation between the teach- ers and school officials of the state and the general public in making pub- lic schools week, beginning April 21st, even more successful than was the observance last year. SUGAR LOAF STAFF Editor--Loretta Sullivan Assistant Editor----~arlotte Rassau Exchange Editor~Catherine Marincovich Reporters Betty Loe, Norton Mattson, Florence Johnson, Leta May Bradley, Isabell Scott, Louis Marin, Max Patterson, Elaine Hammond Catherine Fullerton, Salvador Reyes EDITORIAL The high school period is known as the "gang" period. It is when they begin to go and do things~together in groups. The games of small children are mostly individual; but for games of the older children, such as baseball and football, one must have coopera- tion. Each person of the gang or set thinks his gang is the best, and to chosen ones of their crowd they will tell secrets they wish afterwards they had kept to themselves. Still, this is just the instinc: cf friendship-making. You will not make as many good friends in a year when you are thirty as you can now in a week. But, unless you know how to be a friend, you can never cooperate in a bigger way. No boy or girl can be a very good citiz.on, or a good neighbor, unless he or she was ,~ mem- ber of the gang.--L~ S.

One hundred dol- lars was to be borrowed from the store and cafeteria (fifty dollars each) and th.e other fifty was to be made up by the classes and organizations. At the time of writing this article the building program is completed, and the budget made, according to Mr. Dun- kle. I~e commented on the way the stu- dents got behind thisproject and pushed it over the top. Interesting facts about the Inter- scholastic golf were also brought out by Mr. Dunkl,e, for he attended the last meeting of the California Inter- scolastic Federation, which met to dis- cuss this problem. High school golf competition will now be governed by C. I. F. rulings. Golf will be organized into more d.efinite leagues than ever before and will be really on a sound basis as a major sport in high schools. A. H. 8. There was a modern version of Shakespeare's play, "Romeo and Ju- liet," re-enacted last Tuesday night at the dress rehearsal by two of the Ava- lon High School students--Phylliss Clark and John Rowley. This was suddenly revealed when a careless stage hand pushed open one of the doors a bit too far. A.H.S.
