CATALINA HI WINS AT GOLF The golf tournament between Long Beach Polytechnic High and Catalina was won by our boys 3 to 2. This Tournament, which took place May 17, marks the first entrance of a Catahna school into an inter-scolastic event. This, however, will not be the only event, for several matches in different sports with other schools are being planned for the near futme. Our boys had an advantage in the golf tournament because of their fam- iliarity with the course, although the Long Beach boys are not new to sand greens. They have been playing a great deal on this type of green over near their own school. A return match has been arranged to take place about the fixth of .hue, over in Long Beach on their course. The Catalina team entertained the Polytechnics at a dinner, on Sunday, May 18th, in Cai'ver's tea room, and the boys had a jolly time chatting to- gether and getting better acquainted with each other. Much praise was given both teams for the splendid sportsmanship that prevailed through- out the entire tournament. The game was peppy,, and showed all contestants in good form. Since the Catalina course is considered the sportiest in Southern California, the tournament was an especially interest- ing one. Following is the score for the tour- nament : POLY No. 1--McNamara No. 2--E. Combs--1 up. No. 3--F. Combs. No. 4--V. Underwood--7 up. No. 5--E Underwood. CATALINA No. l--Charles DeSoto--1 up. No. 2--Robert Garcia. No. 3--W. Coffey--1 up. No. 4---C. Eddy. No. 5--E. Feltrop--6 up, 5 to go. Best round, medal score, DeSoto 33 (par.) Since "Ignorance is bliss," no wonder Martha is so happy in geometry. DO YOU PRIZE THAT MAGAZINE OR BOOK?

WATER SPORTS TRY-OUTS The most interesting event of the entire school athletic meet was the water event, held Friday, May 16th, at the pleasure pier. The whole length of the pier was lined with spectators watching the exciting contests in swimming, diving, plunging, etc. Mr. H.
