In line with the southland's Olymp- iad home beautifying program, an en- tire section of the fifth fiber has been converted into a typically Alta Califor- nia scene, with an exotic Catalina mo- tif. Brilliantly plumaged macaws and toucans were taken over from the Is- land, also an entire aquarium. On the patio walls are hung mounted speci- mens of the great game fish that abound in Catalina waters, and of the buffalo and wild mountain goats that roam its hills. A beautiful Spanish girl in costume demonstrates the making of pottery ware, while a skilled musician plays soft Spanish tunes on Catalina-made pottery--the notes as clear as those of silver chimes. The main window on Broadway is also given over to a display of Cata- lina pottery, which is drawing great crowds of spectators. ----:O:-- YACHTING NEWS By Skipper The following yachts were at their moorings over the week-end: E.H. Rosenthal and guests, cruiser "Kicka- poe"; Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Camp, cruiser "Wanderer." Mr. Camp is vice commodore of the Long Beach Yacht Club this year. Comm. Jonah Jones of The subject for the program was Child W'elfare and Mothers' Day. An article, "Child Victims of Federal Jus- tice" was read by Mrs. MacLean. Mrs. Martin read excerpts from "Everyday Problems of the Everyday Child," dealing with the early training of the child and mother trained to keep con- trol of herself in order to control the child; never to bribe or deceive chil- dren ; to be sympathetic. Obedience was sometimes overstrcssed in parental authority. Mrs. Nellie Noble, recently in at- tendance at the P.-T. A. eonvention in Fresno, gave some high lights from addresses given there, one of which was that some over-anxious parents do all the thinking for their children so they get thru high school, and when they go away to college they fall behind in their studies and have to give up their college course. Mrs. Martin added an article on the "Effects of Alcohol, from the maga- zine "Federal Council of Churches." The "Call for Prayer" in the official organ of the W. C. T. U. was read, bidding all members of the unions ev- erywhere to observe June 2 as Prayer Day for the welfare of prohibition. A letter from a guest in Eagle Rock Home for Aged Women was received, thanking the Avalon union for assist- ance. After the giving of the pledge, the meeting was adjourned until May 17th.
