ASSEMBLY NEWS A meeting of the student body was called Tuesday morning, May 6, by Mr. Dunkle, in order to congratulate the boys and girls on the splendid work they did in making the plays a success. We hope in the future they will put on more, and thus bring the parents in closer contact with the pupils.

It will be held Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons, May 14, 15 and 16, at 2 o'clock. Six periods will be run during the morning (No Physical Ed.), and one in the afternoon. As to ad- mission, it will be discussed at the next meeting whether there will be any charge. Third--We have been very fortunate in getting as a coach, a baseball player (Bill Doran, star first baseman of the Catalina Cubs, who spent one season with Cleveland. American League). He will help our boys, who will practice every night after school at four-thirty. They will then pick out a good team.

In another year other work may be ob- tained, if there are any who are in- terested and would like to continue some special course. Eighth--Several committees were appointed by Mr. Dunkle. One to see about printed ribbons for first, second and third prizes in the track meet; one to draw up a resolution of thanks to the Santa Catalina Island Company for the many favors it has extended to the high school, and the use of the stage at the Atwater, and many other favors during the past year; another committee, to discuss the subject of another wienie bake or party. The meeting then adjourned. Some More Assembly News The rest of the meeting was spent in looking over the plans of our new school. The drawing was of mission style. However, actual work will not take place for some time yet. But time means nothing to us now, as we are sure of getting a new school. The meeting then adjourned. MERIT OR DEMERIT The discussion is on. The new mer- it list is posted. Those having 100 merits or over are: Florence Feltrop, Mary Gibson, Martha Meyer, Grace Tregarthen, Doris Wilcox, Myrtle Gib- son, Tom Da]y, John Shields, Malcom Renton, Fred McKelvey and Carl Eddy. A marked improvement is shown in this month's merit standing over last month. Those not having 100 merits, but who are showing improvement, are Betty Trout, Catherine McKay, Edythe Stone, Walter Coffey, Edward Felthrop and Arthur Goulding. Amendments to the merit system are : Deliberate rudeness or discourtesy, 1 to 5 demerits. Leaving room without permission, 1 to 3 demerits. Tardiness to classroom or study room, 1 demerit. The honor of holding most merits and of not losing any since the in- stallation of the merit system still be- longs to Tom Daly, who holds 111 merits. Oh, how we envy him! Action at Last Saturday, May 17th, the Avalon Hi golf team will play with the team of Long Beach. We are looking for- ward to this match with a great deal of interest, because it will be our first. participation in interscholastic athle- tics. The local team is composed of Robert Garcia, Edward Feltrop, Carl Eddy and probably Charles DeSoto. Five men and a coach will come from Long Beach. This contest will take place immediately after the Avalon ar- rives and visitors have strengthened themselves by food. Mr. H. Benjamine Robisori, Avalon Scoutmaster, visited the fourth year history class the second of May. A very interesting discussion was held concerning presidential primaries and elections. We enjoyed having the vis- itor very much. We wish more would come. Oysters from Japan are being trans- planted to the state of Washington, in the hope of beginning a new indus- try on the Pacific Coast.

Another Educational Danger The star cheer leader at an eastern college was awarded the varsity letter. If this keeps up the varsity letter will be almost as easy to get as the regu- lar college degree.--Life. Heavenly Twins "Well, Pat, do the twins make much noise nights ?" "Praise be to hivin!

This new merit list is up (more dis- cussion). Florence sports new dress and shoes. Myrtle Knox, the grammar school teacher, is back again after a brief sickness. Grammar school girls are practicing for the track meet faithfully. We hope that the competition will be a little more exciting than that of base- ball. Friday morning, May 2nd, Miss Phelps took the kindergarten tots on a picnic to the Isthmus. They visited the Ning Po, much to the delight of the children. They returned at one- fifteen, after a very enjoyable trip. Three new members have been ad- ded to the enrollment of the Catalina schools. One member, Ioma Berning, is in the eighth grade; Betty Berning a junior in high school, and Fred Berning a member of the freshmen class. Last week Scoutmaster Benjamine Robison drilled the grammar school pupils for fifteen minutes during their gym period. The last five minutes were spent praying games. Mr. Robi- son visits the school to drill the pu- pils as often as possible in the short time he is here. FILLERS Why did the coal scuttle ? Because it saw the kitchen sink. Why is a goat nearly--?
