Georgia Coleman was the story-teller, and tbe young ladies enjoyed a very interest- ing tale and it was well told. After the meeting the members, with their leader, Mrs. George W. Greene, took a hike to Buena Vista park, where they played games and gathered wild flowers. Those present were Catherine Brown, Isabell Scott, Juanita Gurasich, Ida Williams, Kathleen Hoover, Irene Hoover, Georgia Coleman, Lois Har- rison, Mary Conrad, Ruth Edmundson, Elsie Ulark, Kathryn Dunkle, Violet Watson and Margaret Daly. CAMP FIRE GIRLS Friday evening the Camp Fire held its regular meeting at the Kindergar- ten rooms, the President, Miss Myrtle Gibson, presiding. A jolly circular letter from Mrs. Belcher was received and caused much merriment, as well as joy, as it said she expected to accept the invitation to the Mothers' Council to be held May 16th. She sent a lovely book, "Camp Fire Girls in Merrie England" for the library shelves. Mrs. Wood, although not present, was appointed Camp Fire Librarian, and we hope to gain books enough to keep her busy. Final plans for the Mothers' Council were worked out, and great enthusi- asm was shown by all members pres- ent. The meeting was acclaimed by all present as the peppiest of the year. Next Friday Miss Elaine Hammond has the meeting in charge, and has some good things up her sleeve for it. Cement foundations have been put in for the neat summer home which George A. Hart is having built at the corner of Catalina avenue and Beacon street. There has been no children. Mrs. Sutemeier was loved by all. Into the lives of many Avalonites she entwined many acts of kindness in a quiet, friendly way. To young people in trouble she was a "mother." Often- times her kindly advice to female pris- oners held in custody has been very mfach appreciated by them, and as ma- tron she was spoken of in a most com- mendable way. Many flowers accompanied the cas- ket as it was carried on board the steamer en route for San Diego. The pallbearers at Avalon were: Carl W. Carson, Harry D. Diffin, J. J. Bates, John McMinn, Ralph M. Heywood, Charles Hammond, Joseph Flannigan, H. E. Heuston and P. E. Mackey. III JUST AWAY By S. Hepburn I cannot say and I will not say, That she is dead, she is just away, With a cheery smile and wave of the hand, She has wandered into an unknown land, And left us dreaming how very fair It needs must be since she lingered there. And you, oh you, who the wildest yearn, For the old-time step and the glad return, Think of her faring on, as dear In the love of there as the love of here, Think of her as the same--I say, She is not dead she is just away. Card of Thanks Editor Catalina Islancler: In behalf of my brother, Arthur Sutemeier and myself, I wish to ex- press our thanks for the many kind- nesses shown us in our bereavement in the loss of wife and sister. We also deeply appreciate the services rendered by your Dr. Baker and his hospital, and take this occasion to congrhtulate the city of Avalon on the acquisition of so needed an insti- tution, and the very capable painstak- ing physician in charge.
