COMMUNITY CHURCH OBSERVES MOTHERS' DAY "Mother," and "Mothers' Day" was the theme at the morning and evening services of the Community Congrega- tional Church on Sunday, with good- sized audiences at both. In the morning Rev. John B. Too- may preached a sermon covering both ideas, in which he laid the founaation for women's particular interest in re- ligious affairs far back in Old Testa- ment days. He emphasized the influ- ence of motfier life upon their chil- dren. The choir, augmented by the addi- tion of Dr. and Mrs. R. V. Baker, sang a delightful anthem. In the evening the young people's organization (mainly high school pu- .pils) had charge of the service, with Dick Welsch presiding. The program opened with a violin solo by Bob Coleman, with piano ac- companiment by Miss Lois Elliott. The Girls' Glee Club of the high school sang an appropriate number. Responsive Scripture r.eading, led by Dick Welsch. Prayer was offered by William Orr, Jr. Dr. R; V. Baker sang a tenor solo, "Mother, My Dear," with piano ac- companiment by Mrs. Baker. A paper on the "History of Moth- ers' Day," was read by Charles Car- penter. Rev. John B. Toomay spoke in har- mony with the topic of the day. The service was closed withthe Mizpah Benediction. THE THINNING RANKS Rev. John B. Toomay was called on last Monday to officiate at the funeral of Mrs. Toomay's uncle, Mr. Adam Crawford, at Pomona. Mr. Crawford was one of that thin, and rapidly di- minishing line of veterans of the great Civil War. He was born in Scotland more than ninety years ago. He came to this country at the age of twelve. Seven years later the war broke out and he enlisted in an Illinois regiment. He saw hard service, and like many thou- sands of others who were not natives of this country, but had enlisted in the Union Army, he received his cit- izenship by special act of congress, be- cause he was then under arms for the Republic. Mr. Crawford 'had lived in California for 31 years. He had been a long time citizen of Pomona and member of the local Post. For several years he was active in citrue culture. One rather surprising feature at the funeral was the presence of fourteen members of the Grand Army, wtih their present commander, who is al- most 93 years old. They are all very old, and most of them look feeble; but they were able to hold a very im- pressive service at the grave. O~f this group, the color-bearer was a negr%. standing erect and military, defying the weight of the years. Mrs. P. K. Wrigley and daughters returned to the mainland Saturday via airplane en route to their home in Chicago. They were joined in Los Angeles by Mrs. William Wrigley Jr., and Mr. J. H. Patrick, president of the S. C. I. Co., who are also en route to Chicago for a few months. Mrs. Parlane Reid, Mrs. Carrie M. Sucher, Mrs. W. H. Price and Mrs. Montague Foster were in attend- anee at the State Federation of W:om- en's Clubs in Los Angeles last week. Mrs. C. E. Sullivan returned tO her Avalon home last week after a serious illness. It is a pleasure to all to know that she -s in much better health and continuing- to improve. Mrs. D. M. Renton, Mrs. Mark Wil- liamson, and Mr. and Mrs. Sanborn were anaong Avalonites who sailed for the continent Sunday afternoon. Glen Hoover and John Sorrao cross- ed the channel Saturday, m)rth bound.

"When I'm Grown Up" The hall at the Casino chosen for the presentation of the first spring re- cital by the pupils of Miss Maryelyn Boles was not large enough to hold the parents, brothers, sisters and friends of the several participants. The ability displayed by the young students evidenced that Miss Boles has the faculty or gift of teaching the young along the lines in which she is giving instruction. So proficient were they, both younger and older, that in- dividual selection is not necessary Following was the fine Program I.

STATEMENTS CONSIDERED In the April Cosmopolitan a number of famous writers presented their views in an Easter Symposium on how Jesus, if on earth today, would solve our present problems. There are wide differences in their conclusions. Rev. John B. Toomay gave these different statements to his congregation one week ago, so that they would be fa- miliar when he came later to discuss them. He will take up and consider the statements on next Sunday even- ing. Evidently, this symposium has been widely read and has created con- siderable discussion.
