CAGE THE CATALINA ! CATALINA PARENT-TEACHER ASSOCIATION HOLDS SESSION (Contiam~d from Page I. Column 4) make it their business to visit the .schools frequently. He commended the organization of the seventh to twelfth grades into junior and senior high schools, saying that already the wisdom of such action was being shown. He called attention to regis- tration week, commencing October 6th, and expressed the desire that every child under eighteen and over three years of age might be registered this year. Announcement was also nmde that evening classes would be started this month, covering the topic of Americanism, especially to prepare for- eigners for naturalization, and any other study for which a sufficient num- ber of students might register. Following his interesting talk Mr. Dunkle called up the several members of his teaching staff and introduced them individually. Afterwards they held a reception in the Sunday school room, where everybody had an opportu- nity to meet and greet them. Refresh- ments were served and a pleasant so- cial hour was enjoyed. During the evening a roll of mem- bers for the Parent-Teacher Associa- tion was started, with the result that forty-one names were registered, it is anticipated that at the next meeting this list will be materially lengthened. Before adjournment a motion was adopted instructing the secretary to express to H. M. Shields the thanks of the association for the liberal sup- ply of Catalina "Speed" orange drink furnished for the reception. The association then adjourned sub- ject to call. WILL CALIFORNIA PRESERVE GREAT NATURAL RESOURCE? "Shall we let a few fish spoil a hun- dred-million-dollar proposition?" Such is the plea made by the interests at- tempting to block the Klamath river with a 250-foot dam. If we use the same argument in all conservation pro- jects, we might just as well bury the word "conservation."" Although people have become rather mercenary, it seems doubtful whether, as a unit, they will stand for the giving away of their whole birthright. Indian treaties prom- ised Indians a share of fish in the streams---a birthright of theirs. Every Californian has inherited his share and now the people must make a decision as to whether they are willing to give away, not even sell, the fish life in the Klamath river in return for power de- velopment. A company has secured from state and federal governments power resources which tbey themselve.s estimate at a hundred millions of dol- lars without giving any bond or other security. Too long already, has the motto been, "First let us have the dams, and then we will talk about the fish." It is high time we took the opposite point of view expressed in, "Show us on ex- isting dams how sea-run fish can be cared for and no opposition will be made to the building of dams." Thus far, experience can be couched in the phrase, "High dams and no fish." Fish and Game Commission. SOCIAL AND PERSONAL -'Mrs. R. V. Baker delightfully enter.- tained the members of the Escholtzia Auction Bridge Club, on Tuesday of last week, at her home on Catalina avenue. Those present were Mrs. C. J.

Sir. and Mrs. McHenry Mosier left for their home in Arizona last weel~, after a very pleasant summer spent at their cottage on Descanso avenue. Mr. and Mrs. Mosier are very fond of Av- alon-always glad to come and sorry to leave at the end of each season. They have made many friends here, and a nmnber of farewell parties were given in their honor_ Joe Fishel, who has been assisting J. H. Beesley in the management of the Catalina Country Club golf links during the summer, has returned to his Los Angeles station, at 324 South- western avenue, where he has one of the most successful golf schools in that big city. Avalon golfers will miss him. Word has been" received of the death of the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Taylor, well known in Avalon, who are now residing at Long Beach. The young lady, who was 25 years of age, was killed in an automobile accident at Wihnington. The bereaved parents have the sympathy of their friends. Mrs. Frank Lamb Willson of 7224 Franklin avenue, Hollywood, and Mrs. Eldon Webb Tice of 2014 West Eighth street, Los Angeles, have closed their cottage at 339 Claressa avenue, after a three months sojourn, during which they entertained many friends.
