"THE WAY OF THE CROSS" This interesting little pageant, with a lesson all its own, was given at the Community Congregational Church on Sunday evening. It was under the direction of Mrs. Alice Taylor, and was partieipateed in by seveh'al of the young ladies of the Smaday School, assisted by Mrs. Heywood, Mrs. W. S. W'illiams and Miss Ellz- abeth MacLean. The idea presented was that of a woman who had become dissatisfied with life--the cross she had to bear. Then she had an opportunity to take up the various crosses which others had to carry, only to find that none of them fitted her need. Finally, she, became content to return and take up her own burdens--represented by the cross. Before presenting the pageant, Mrs. Taylor read a scripture lesson, and ~rave a brief talk on mission work. Previous to coming to the United States she was engaged in evangeli- cal work in Canada. MARY WILLIAMS CLUB TO HOLD A FIESTA On Thursday, May 9th, the Mary Williams Club will hold a Spanish luncheon and card party at the Cat- alma Country Club. The luncheon will be prepared by a genuine Spanish cook, and will cer- tainly be too delicious for anyone to miss. For those not interested in contract and auction bridge, come and bring your knitting, for among such beautiful surroundings as the Country Club, it should l~e a real pleasure to relax and enjoy an after- noon of visiting with your friends and neighbors. If you are fortunate enough to be the .possessor of an early California costume, wear it and help make it a real Fiesta. Luncheon will be served at 12:30. Tickets for the small sum of 75 cents can be had from Mrs. Frances White, Mrs. Mary Pollok or Mrs. Ann Ste- vens. Let us make this one grand Fiesta. Private residences are rapidly being put in condition for the summer. Sev- eral are receiving fresh coats of paint, which certainly improves their appearance. Among the latter are the island residences of Miss ,Margaret Moore, of Glendale Boulevard, Los Angeles, and Mr. and Mrs. James G. Sprecher of South Chestnut Heights Boulevard, in the same city. Come to Catalina and be charmed. ~ ~ i~..~ H~ ~. ~ .~.~.~. ~.~.~. ~ .~ .~ ~ FACULTY DOINGS | Lobbying at the | (Written for t---he-Sugar Loaf) | Ilotel St. i]otherine | Various places were visited through- out California and Arizona by the ~.

When the Baron isn't cruising on his Norab, he's the guiding genius of a group of prominent southland hostelries, in- cluding the Los Angeles Biltmore. A racing stable is another diversion. tt Those six charming young ladies who were staying at the St. Catherine for several days this week, and who were seen prowling around different places, note books in hand, were Cat- alina information girls from Los An- geles, Long Beach and Wilmington, getting the low-down on what's doing, when, where, and how much, around the Island for the coming summer, said information to be passed on to several hundred thousand Catalina vis- itors. There's a bunch of gals that really have to know all the answers. That "Rest of your life" they guar- antee to give you on Santa Catalina is no misnomer, so far as getting a good night's rest at the St. Catherine is concerned. This week every spring and mattress in the hotel was reolaced with new "Beauty-Rest" equipment. Louis Hill of Monterey, railroad magnate, was a visitor during the week. Mr. Hill has been coming to the magic isle for the past 30 years. Fishing, he says, is the big attraction for him. Saw Mr. and Mrs. 8tan Laurel in the lobby. Stan was taking a b.rief respite from picture making, and nat- uraIly headed for Catalina. Watched William Lackey, producer, trying his luck on that marble game in the game room, likewise Fred Datig, Par- amount casting chief... Incidentally, it seems to me that brilliant minds everywhere are hard at work trying to outdo each other in inventing new- fangled angles on those nickel grab- bers that make them more and more intricate and complicated. Wonder what they'll have next. There's more British visitors this spring than I've seen for several sea- sons... P'raps the depresh is lifting down jolly o1' Lunnon way; deah, deah. ,I 'ope so... Staying for the week-end was Ethel Shannon. Re- member her in the days of the un- garrulous moom pitchers ?... And just about any time you look you'll see one or several people tucked away in some corner of the lobby engrossed in one or another volume of that in- teresting trilogy, "Mutiny on the Bounty", "Men Against the Sea", and "Pitcairn's Island." Caroline Platt started it all by bringing home a copy of the "Mutiny" some four weeks ago, and lending to a friend. She hasn't seen it since, And last week during the cattle round-up at Rancho Escon- dido she hied herself for a hike in order to commune more closely with nature. Now she's asking her friends what one does for a stubborn case of pizen oak. Some sure signs of approaching summer... Six yachts in Deseanso Bay over the week-end... People talking about where the yellowtail fishing's best... Young things in shorts and bathing suits, and... fresh strawberries on the menu. If there's anything that tempts me to premeditated mayhem, it's one of those hlppity-hoppity pseudo-Terp- slchoreans, (that's a Joe E. Brown mouthful) trying to imitate Fred As- taire on a two by four dance floor. And then there was the befuddled inebriate who got on the phone one evening and bubbled "Connect me with the Hotel Metropole, will ya please." "But the Metropole burned majority came back feeling almost as tired as when he went away. Mr. Arnold went to the Principals' Convention at San Francisco and fouud it most stimulating. Miss Coppock made a motoring trip up the coast. She got as far as San- ta Barbara and returned on Wednes- day. Miss Eaton went to Palm Springs, the mountains, and to see "the wild flowers on the hills at Long Beach. A musical convention claimed Miss Elliott for a part of the week. Miss Gross went to Redlands where she worked in her garden and went shopping several times in Los Angeles. Miss Hill went to Agua Caliente and stayed over-night. Miss Hotchkiss attended a commer- cial convention.
