A sil- ver offering for the benefit of the class was taken. The play was a demonstration of a class meeting, followed by seven dif- ferent episodes in the history of Santa Catalina Island, from its discovery by Cabrillo until the present day. Alice Lee Heywood represented the grandmother, who told the story of the Island's activities to two children, Dorothy Renfro and Roden Williams. After its successful presentation it was decided to present it to the elemen- tary pupils later. A. H. 6. Since the arrival of the guinea-pig and its habitation in Miss Shaw's classroom, the faculty has experienced much difficulty in guarding their lunches against the pilfering ways of M!iss /Shaw, who is always on the lookout for scraps for her charge. Reports are cui'rent at the school that lettuce and crackers have been doing the vanis'hing act. A singular thing is the fact that Miss Shaw had recently passed that way. Should the teachers refuse to buy salads for the guinea-pig to get his lettuce, Miss Shaw raids the Cafeteria garbage can, and rumors say that the grocery stands down town are suffer- ing at the hands of this noble care- taker. Both elementary and high school students enjoy their visits with the guinea-pig, which is called "Wimpy" in the morning and "Sally-Mars" in the afternoon. It is not everybody that has their sex changed so fre- quently. A,H.S.

EDITORIAL Parents and friends of students at the Avalon schools showed remarkable interest in this year's accomplishments by their attendance and questioning of the teachers and their student assist- ants, during last week's observance of Public Schools Week. This interest will surely stimulate and encourage the students' ardor and drive them to still higher attainments. Students were not the only ones erL- joying the visit of the Avalon resi- dents; members of the faculty also were pleased on hearing the complj.- ments paid to their students' work; they were compliments reflecting on the work of the teachers. The exhibits showed many hours of labor, given by students and teachers, and with the excellent attendance of the residents the observance of this week was a huge success.--E. W. AVALON DEFEATED IN COMEDY OF ERRORS, 8-6 C. I. B. S. Victory Evens Series at One Each Taking advantage 6f Avalon's mis- cues, Catalina Island Boys' School scored in two big innings to defeat Avalon in the second game of the baseball series, on the victors' field, :last Thursday, by the score of 8-6. Jack Peterson started the game in the box for Avalon; but due to errors on the part of his team mates, and wildness on his part, which allowed Toyon to score five runs in the fourth, he was taken out and Johnny Reyes put in his place. Reyes managed to hold C. I. B. S. for two innings; but in the first of the seventh his team mates booted a few more, allowing C. I. B. S. to score three more runs. Avalon scored their runs by sheer batting power, C. I. B. S. making only one error throughout the game. Har- ley Berning and Clyde Grant hit what should have been home runs, but due to field rules they were held at second base. Avalon collected 12 hits, 8 of them off Nottmeyer, who was retired in favor of Scott; while C. I. B. S. col- lected only 6 hits off the combined of- ferings of Peterson and Reyes. The third game of the series will be played this Thursday on the C. I. B. S. dia- nlond.
