PAGE TWO THE CATALINA SET TO MUSIC One short blast, with moorings loosened, Evening breezes blowing free, Loaded to her very Plimsol, Avalon puts out to sea. Proudly now she breasts the ocean, And the band begins to play, Breathing forth to us "Aloha", In a most romantic way. Stalwart youths and coy maidens, Hearts are tender, eyes beguile, With deep yearning sing the anthem, Looking to the Mystic Isle. Now the music theme is changing, "Met My Love in Avalon", Then in manner disconcerting, Took a boat and soon was gone. As the steamer takes the motion Of a syncopated roll, Orchestra begins its jazzing, With great force and depth of soul. It is noted in the ballroom, Dancers grip with disregard, And they start to improvising, Steps fantastic, though not hard. Soon the steamship nears the mainland, "To the place I started from", And the band flings on the breezes "California Here I Come." Now the-boat swings to the landing And the. band takes up the strain, "How I Love You California," May we never part again. We have seen the Isle Enchanted, We have known a day of bliss, And the day was set to music; "In the World No Trip Like This". Avalon, June 26th, 1924. James Willard Marsh. TAKE A TUMBLE! He Did Not Know What the Trouble Was Until His Little Brother Told Him It had always been Harold's wish to be popular. Ever since hewas at kin- dergarten he had loved to be noticed by people. But, as time went on, something held his progress back, and he wondered what it was. At school, in the winter, he was popular--he had a nice car. He spent his smnmer's at Catalina Island, and, tho he was very generous, offering chewing gram to the girl he danced or walked with, he was not popular. And he knew not why; he only wondered. When it came to making friends with the more elderly gentlemen of the Is- land, poor Harold had no success at all, and fie could not guess the trou- ble. One evening, at the hotel, his family were having a most distingu- ished guest for dinner, and Harold anxiously waited to meet him, for he loved to meet interesting people. In the lobby, before dinner, was when Harold learned what it was that held him back. For it was then that--not Harold, nor his father, nor his mother, who entertained their guest, but it was Harold's younger brother, Charley, who seemed to attract the distinguished gentleman. And Mr. French was greatly interested in baseball news, of how Zane Grey caught his latest swordfish, and he listened intently as little Charley told of the many inter- esting places to go and to see at Cat- alina. Then, very suddenly, it dawned upon Harold that his little brother had learned the secret that Harold, older-- but not wiser, had missed. For you see, Charley read the Catalina Islan- dew, Magazines, newspapers, candies, etc., at WINDLE'S NEWS STAND. A certain minister was officiating at the funeral of a child. As the father was one of his wealthiest parishioners, he was of course anxious to show his unbounded sympathy; so, at a critical moment during his sermon, he turned to the congregation and said: "Dearly beloved, many a time I have dangled this corpse upon my knee."

How do we come to possess such fondness for certain op- inions and repulsion for other opin- ions? Most of have often wished we could answer the above questions.

POISON GAS AND HATE The greatest need of this new world and new era is good will and brother- hood instead of poison gas of hate. Europe has fallen from her workl leadership because of the hatreds that divide her peoples. If America is to lead in that wonderful future of which we dream, it nmst be by cultivating love and good will and better under- standing and kinder relationship with all nations.--Rev.
