The thickness of the paper is regulated by the amount of pulp poured on the frame; and the width, by the edges between which it is confined. The finished pro- duct is obtained after the pulp is sub- jected to heavy rollers and layers of felt, which take out the remaining moisture and dry and polish it. HIGH SCHOOL The physics class conducted an in- teresting experiment with electricity a few days ago. They succeeded in pro- ducing an electrical discharge within an exhausted glass tube. This is based on the same principle as the so-called Geissler tube. Theodore was exceedingly shocked during physics, one day last week. We suggest that in the future, when he is induced to steal a current from an induction coil, he should wear shock absorbers. Tom and George entered a restau- rant during Lent and this is what they ordered : Tom--"Bring us some shark." Waiter--"We have no shark." George--"Well, then, bring us sonle whale." Waiter--"We have no whale, either." Tom--"Oh, bring us a couple of beefsteaks, smothered in onions--the Lord knows we tried to get fish !" Myrtle--"Did you get the thirteenth problem ?" Grace--"Yes, from Carl." Some interesting relay races were staged during physical education per- iod one day last week. The typing class is steadily growing larger. Theodore Sierks has recently joined their ranks, and can now play a bass solo on his typewriter. With a little more practice he may be able to write his own name--if he discon- tinues stamping his foot every time he strikes a key. The class now con- sists of the following students: Florence Feltrop, John Botello, Bet- ty Trout and Theodore Sierks. --...-.---,-, Come to the High School plays at the Atwater on Friday evening, April 25. Forgetful Pat Pat was very forgetful, even on his wedding day. When going to his bride's church he happened to meet an old friend, and they began to talk about conscription. Suddenly, he re- membered he would be late, but rush- ing off to the telegraph office he sent the following wire to his intended: "Don't get married until I arrive---- Pat."--Household Magazine. Hi SCHOOL PLAYS LOCAL HITS Folks, this is your last chance to read about the plays! There is only one thing left to do, go and see them. Your presence there will enable us to present more school plays in the fu- ture. They may be even better than these, though we doubt it. The prices will be as follows: 25c for children; 35c for adults; 50c for reserved seats. The first rows in the center isle are to be reserved. If you take your 50c tickets to Windle's News Stand, your seat will be reserved. Have them reserved early. The plays will be produced at the Atwater Hotel building, on April 25, at 8 p, m. Our editor has given his "Elizabeth" a new spring dress (flivver of course). Catherin~ is wearing a new jacket to school. Robert is learning a new song to sing in "Spreading the News." Mary is going to have her hair shingled. Walter has started to study his Spanish lesson (keep up the good work). During civics class Fred enjoys tap- ping time to his latest saxaphone solo ("Little Boy Blue"). Arthur is so rushed that he can only find time to write his paper re- ports in Spanish period. Myrtle has a new string of red THE "BETTER" GRADE beafls~ .. ------- Florence received I for her Spanish The following students had one hun- lesson (Hoo-rah!). ~i dred or more merits at the end of Betty is imtustrious since she ~ts March: Tom Daly, John Shields, Mal- been taking lessons on the ty'ple- colin Renton, Martha Meyer, Doris wraer. Wilcox, Carl Eddy, Mary Gibson, 't Grace could do the bicycle exercise Grace Tregarthen and Fred McKelvey. Some amendments were added to the merit system, which are as fol- lows : A late excuse or special report will bring one demerit. The term "elective office" refers to an office running for a full semester. Merits for student activities are awarded only at the close of the par- ticular activity, or the close of the playing season in case of athletics. No merits will be given for activities connected with student's class work. For many reasons the students of the Avalon High School found it dif- ficult to study last week. The Los Angeles schools had their Easter va- cation, and the boys and girls came to Avalon by the million--so it seemed to us. They made the most of the sunshine, basked on the beach in gor- geous bathing suits--wouldn't we have loved to do it! They took delightful long hikes--how we envied them! They stretched their lazy selves in hammocks and big comfy chairs. They laughed, played, slept their week away --and piece de resistance, they danced their night away--but didn't we love that, too! But wait! Not for noth- ing did we go to school while others played. When those jolly folks are jolly no longer, while they are pers- piring over their finals, while they are longing for the free and easy life of vacation--we, even we, will be rejoic- ing in holidays. Those at whom they smiled, whom they pitied, will have their turn, and will smile at them in pity. Thus we were cheered through the dreadful week. Mr. Dunkle made a trip to Long Beach last Friday. very well, if she wouldn't coast so much (Get a coaster brake). Edward is our star Pupil in Med- ieval history. Doris is very industriously lJractic- ing for interior decoration by bedeck- ing the blackboards each day (study hall). Carl thinks that blowing feathers about the room is an ideal pastime. George seems to find ideas, during his English talks, by pacing the floor (marvelous !). Edythe is displaying great talent in sign printing. Don't forget to buy tickets /or the "Plays of the Year." You can get them reserved at Windle's News Stand. Come to the High School plays at the Atwater Hotel on Friday, April 25. The poster committee certainly de- serves credit for the fine posters that they have made for the two High School plays to be given April 25th. They have worked faithfully during their spare time on the many posters, which have been placed in the differ- ent store windows around town.
