Dunkle, Principal The Cataliml High School was born this past September. Like any infant it came into being without clothing or other appurtenances. Through the generosity of the Santa Catalina Island Company, represented in the person of Manager D. M. Ren- ton, the school secured the use of a suite of small rooms at the Casino. Furniture, books and other equipment were slowly accumulated through the agency of the Long Beach School Board. No more unique and interesting site for a high school has ever come with- in my experience. The equipment and housing have been well proportioned to the size and needs of our school for the first year. Many of the classes have been small, but the work has been well organized despite the dif- ficulties. This first year only a regular col- lege prepatory course has been at- tempted, though a little commercial work has been offered. Every course necessary for graduation under the state requirements or the requirements of the University of California has been given. This first year. there have been two seniors, eight juniors, nine sopho- mores twelve freshman and one post- graduate student. Seven have been enrolled in the evening high school. The student body of the High School has not been very formally organized, but social, dramatic, literary and ath- letic activities have been engaged in. Three school parties have been held, one at the Foresters Inn, one at the Isthmus, and one at White's Landing. Four short plays have been presented to the public, two thru the School As- sociation and two for the financial benefit of the high school. The kindness of the Islander in of- fering a page for the literary and journalistic endeavors of the students has been a source of inspiration and training for the student body.
