PAGE TWO ' THE CATALINA SCHOOL ASSOCIATION VOTES TO JOIN P. T. A. The regular monthly meeting of the Avalon School Association was held at the Congregational Church on Tues- day evening of last week, with the president, Mrs. W. I4. Stone, in the chair. The meeting was largely at- tended, the auditorium being well filled. The program for the evening opened with an interesting exercise given by girls of the third grade, assisted by a little colord boy. A stirring song, "The P. T. A.," was sung by the boys and girls of the sixth, seventh and eighth grades. Mr. Dunkle, superintendent of the high school, made a few remarks con- cerning athletics, and announced that Mrs. Caroline B. Adams of Los An- geles had presented two cups to the high school, to be given to the girl and boy winning the singles for the school year 1923-24. Mr. Dunkle thereupon presented one cup to Miss Edythe Stone, and the other to John Botello, they having carried off the honors in the respective contests. Announcement was also made that Mr. Fred Adams would give similar cups for the winning contestants in the 1924-25 tennis event's. Mrs. F. S. Ellard sang an attractive solo, which so pleased the audience that she was encored for a second number. Mr. John L. Lounsbury, principal of the Burnett School at Long Beach, was introduced, to speak on the sub- ject of "Extra Curricula Activities in Grammar and High Schools." The speaker handled his subject in an in- teresting manner, touching upon such topics as domestic science, art, music, sloyd, physical education, etc. He closed his address with an earnest ap- peal for the Avalon School Associa- tion to join the Parent-Teacher or- ganization.
