The chimes were to honor the home-com- ing of Sam Hernandez, a native son of Santa Catalina, and his charming bride, the forn~er Senorita !Othelia Galindo of Los Angeles. The couple were married Saturday morning, April 27, at a nuptial mass in St. Boniface Church, Anaheim. They will make their home at Pebbly Beach. : O : ---------" "ASK THE PROFESSOR" (Written for the Sugar Loaf) Final rehearsals are in progress for this ~program, which is the Avalon High School Operetta.

After the minutes had been read and approved several interesting com- munications from headquarters were read, which indicated that-the fight to secure the adoption of the Town- send Revolving Pension Plan by Con- gress was just getting well under way. A program had been prepared for the evening by Mrs. Taylor, but early evening rain had served to largely disrupt the arrangements. However, Miss Dorothy Lee sang two numbers, "Isle of C~pri", and "The Last Round- up". Mrs. Ta~ylor read an original poem relative to Mothers'. Day. Following the program Mr. Pollok presented his resignation as president of the club, suggesting that ~hey elect a full corps of officers to carry on the future work--a president, yice-presi- dent, secretary and treasurer. The resignation was accepted, with thanks for the work he had done, after which the following new officers were chosen : " President, W. H.'Stone. Vice-President, Chas. H. Smith. Secretary, Miss Blanche Heath--re- elected with a cheer. Treasurer, Mrs. Alice Taylor. Considerable discussion followed rel- ative to finding a suitable place to meet, as it would not b'e convenient to meet in the City Hall during the summer. Upon motion a committee was appointed to see what there was available. Mr. Stone was called to take his place as the presiding officer and said that he would do all he could for the success of the club and the cause for which it is working. Adjournment was then taken to next Monday evening, when it is pro- bable that some more interesting things will take place. Are you in favor of the Townsend Plan? Do you attend the Monday evening meetings? If not, why not ? GIRL SCOUTS The Girl Scouts had a wienle bake April 22, at Pebbly Beach. The Scouts had lots of fun, as well as lots to eat. Mrs. Blanchard, captain, Mrs. W:hite, and Mrs. Davis were chaper- ones.The Scouts that yet had to pass their fire-making tests passed them,and the rest of them played games. A pleasant time was enjoyed. Shirley Pyte, Scribe. Pressure of advertising caused the omission of some regular artit:les this week.
