"Uncle John" Daggett of KHJ. was the guest of honor at a delightful party given at Pebbly Beach on Mon- day evening.

Dr. Fox has just re- turned from Chicago. Mrs. H. W, Eichbaum is entertain- ing her sister, Mrs. A. F. Lang, niece, Jane Lang, of Porterville, California, and Jane Durant of Los Angeles. Hermann the Great, famous for his magic wand and slight of hand tricks, is at the Bandbox Theatre this week. He is accompanied by Mlle. Glady~, celebrated astrologer and mentalist, and a number of other artists. There are six acts in the entertainment. The curtain.rises at 8:15, and we think you will find it a pleasant place to spend an evening. The Strand Theatre has been show- ing a lot of fine pictures, and is doing a splendid business. The feature pic- ture on Friday was "Little Robinson Crusoe," with Jackie Coogan in the title role. Needless to say, the house was filled from two o'clock until nearly midnight. At one time during the af- ternoon over four hundred children were present. Among the many in- terested visitors were Betty and Jim- mie Offield of Chicago, who were ac- companied by their friends and Mrs. Win. Wrigley. Entering the darkened theatre from the bright sunlight out- doors, the kids were for a time unable to see anything, and several humerous incidents occured as they groped for seats. There are another fine series of pictures in the program this week, as may be seen by reference to page eleven. The play to be given by the children at the Congregational church, August 28th and 29th, at 8 p. m., contains the following children in the principal parts: Bride, Claudia Walton; Groom Jack Carson; Bridesmaids Agneta Watson, Alice Lee Heywood and Polly Anna Reed; mother of the bride Agnes Conrad; grandmother, Katherine May Winkleby; grandfather, Glen Watson; mechanical dolls, Cupie Hey, Mary O'Leary and others; Indian chief, Harold Reed; policeman, Walter Con- rad; models, Betty Mosier, Lois Har- rison, Elsie Clark; Aunt Eliza, Ruth Edmondson; Red Cross nurses, Carrie Vera, Violet Watson, Isabell Scott, Pearl German, Ida Williams and oth- ers. Quite a number of other children will also take part. All children in the play are requested to come to the church at t0 o'clock Thursday morn- ing for a rehearsal. FROM BAND PROGRAM Archie Garner, the trombone so- loist, is a very versatile gentleman. To his many accomplishments his wife has added that of "artistic dish washing." He is so well train- ed in that household duty that when he is invited to dinner by his friends he insists on washing the dishes. The wives of several mem- bers of theband, who are particu- lar about doing their own work, have had to lock their doors to keep him from meddling with the dish pan. We might add 'that Mrs. Garner is away. If she was here he would find plenty to do at home. Motorists' Crod Speeding, speeding, all a're speeding, Getting caught to pay a fine.

Editor Catalina Islander: The Summer Session in Los Angeles of the University of California has now closed. We feel that much of the success of the session this year, from the point of view of attendance at the regular exercises and at the special lectures, has been due to the consistent interest and consideration shown the news items'which the University has sent the Avalon Islander during the past six months. The early enrollment for the Session this year exceeded by more than eight hundred the total advance enrollment last year. This increase was undoubt- edly due to the generous space given University announcements in the early spring when those interested in pursu- ing sunnner courses were making their plans. The enrollment this year has ex- ceeded last year's total by an appre- ciable number,--3524 as against 3240-- in spite of the fact that many large universities have reported a decrease in attendance at their summer sessionn this year. I wish to assure you of my very real appreciation of the interest which you have manifested in the Summer Ses- sion. Very sincerely yours, Harold L. Bruce.
