A. Setchell of the University of California. There are few edible plant products obtained there without regu- lar attention. Every native village has its plantation where the famous bread- fruit, bananas, and cocoanuts are rais- ed. The plantations are generally in forest clearings and are allowed to grow up in all sorts of weeds. Wednesday Evening, April 23 Miriam Cooper and Geo.

Cortissoz O, I feel as tho' I had a mint o' money, When 'bout thirty cents is really all I own, An' my life seems sweeter than the sweetest honey! An' a happy feelin' soaks me to the bone, It is not because nay sweeheart truly loves me, For, to tell the truth, I aint got no such thing. It is that fantistic, yearly dream that hugs me, It's the tantalizin' fever o' the spring! O' I feel so goldarn good I can't help smilin' At the mossy jokes my friends are bound to tell; An' I do not kick them salesmen beguilin' Who most frequently are ringin' my door-bell. It is not because I am "a dandy fellow," That I put up with this aggravatin' thing. Just what makes me act so tender-like an' mellow? It's the tantalizin' fever o' the spring! O, I take my little boat and go out rowin'; 'Round the Bay of Avalon I start to fish, An' what I catch I should have left there, growin', For they wouldn't more 'n decorate a dish. Now, whyn't I get mad, an' raise the devil Because my hook won't larger fishes bring? (As I nearly always do?) Well, on the level, I am dippy with the fever o' the spring! OUR PACIFIC ISLE By Elmer M. Creighton Have you ever longed for a desert isle With beautiful beaches, that seemed to smile And bid you welcome to a wonderful place That man hasn't spoiled with his work and waste? Some place that you felt was your own, Where you could build your house and home? Have you pictured your mind a place so fair? Have you been longing to find yourself there ? To tear away from the grind and toil, And the city's heat, that makes your blood boil; To take a ship and sail far away, And land in a beautiful island bay ? Then listen, friend, I'll tell you where to go__ And you'll like it, that I know-- For it is really a beautiful isle-- And people have lived there a long, long while. And I wish you would go and see What a wonderful place t'hat isle can be. Go on over, and visit the island folk-- You'll find your troubles will vanish like smoke! And, besides, it's a mighty safe bet, A more hospitable people you never have met. So go on over and stay a while-- You'll find everyone cheerful on Catalina Isle. Friday Evening, April 25 Win.
