In the houses of the rich and the houses of the poor there is apparent the same dignified scorn of ostentation and the same pride in honest buihling and honest living. Although it has been said that Colo- nial architecture is oht fashioned and belongs to a day that is past, this is no more true of Colonial design than of any other of the traditional styles. Furthermore, C o 1 o n i a 1 architecure seems out of date only because its progress was stopped by the (;reek revival and the eighteen eighties. If it had continue(! to grow and develop, how much more lovely would our countryside be than it is now with its potpourri of all styles. CATALINA ISLANDER Come to Catalina for the rest of your life. Good in whichever sense you choose to take it. LOS ANGELES COUNTY TUBERCULOSIS ASSOCIATION (Continued tcom Page 1, Colunm 3) is enabled to permanently take over and maintain the work. Consequent- ly there is now fighting the battle for health a small army ofworkers where a few years ago there was only a squad, and the battle is being won. "The death rate from tuberculosis is rapidly declining," says Dr. Pome- roy. "Health is now a duty, and people actually are becoming ashamed to be ill " he declared. "In educating the public to this new spirit, the little Christmas Seal Stamp has accomplished wonders. "Best of all, it is making child health in Southern California the best in the world," averred the County Health Officer. "I therefore feel that every citizen in Los Angeles County should take a peculiar interest in the Christmas Seal sale because of its history of wonderful results which no other or- ganization can possibly secure or du- plicate. "The Tuberculosis Association co- operates with all health organizations so that there can be no duplication. The educational xalne in bringing home to each citizen the health needs of this county are peculiar. Also this campaign. "Because of our climate, w6 are the mecca for the health seeker," contin- ued Dr. Ponler~,y. "With the rapid growth of popula- tion, efforts to control tuberculosis must be increased. Many hundreds of veterans of the world war are be- ing brought here by the government. Often their families are brought with them. The county must do its best for these families, especially for the children. The problem is too big for the Health Department alone. I therefore trust, as health officer of the county, that no one will forget this Christmas to buy seals liberally and keep the good work going for- ward," urged Dr. Pomeroy. Why of Interest to Avalonites Because last summer the county department was able to establish a summer health school here, anti if the sale of Christmas Seals is liberally supported it is possible that such a T~CJ:OL Pt fine gasoline of the vohtility and stability that produce quick starting, fast acceleration and a maximum of miles.

THE CATALINA ISLANDER AMERICAN LEGION Plans have practically been complet- ed for the embarking of thirty thous- and members of the American Legion in the fall of 1927, when they start their pilgrimage to Paris for the na- tional convention, according to an- nouncement from Legion headquarters. Assigning the Leviathan, largest passenger vessel in the world, as flag- ship of the Legion flotilla, it is ex- pected that the veterans will be mak- ing reservations early this fall for the France trip. The Leviathan, formerly the Vaterland, is part of the United States Lines tteet. Several other ships from the United States Lines have been reserved for the Legion trip. With the veterans saving money for the Paris jaunt, all preparations are fast taking concrete shape. It is ex- pected that the visit of the former lighting men oi the United States will cement friendship with France as no- thing else could do at the present time. I,eading statesmen of France have been ardent in their words of welcome to the former soldiers and assure them that everything possible will bc done to show them that France bids them welcome. On this side the doughboys, sailors and marines of 1918 arc welcoming back their Italian buddies, who were hehl back on account of immigration laws. It was largely due to Legion influence that Congress passed an Act allowing the aliens to return and the United States Lines have reduced their rates less than one half to aid in mak- ing possible the return of these vet- erans. SOCIAL AND PERSONAL TRAVEL BUREAUS DEMAND CLEAN CAMPS There are a number of motor travel bureaus operating in the eastern and middle western states. The chiefs of those bureaus state that motor travel will be directed by them only to those camps where approved sanitary condi- tions are maintained. These agencies demand that motor camps have safe water supplies, ap- proved methods of sewage and gar- bage disposal, full-time caretaker and an absence of mosquito breeding pla- ces. These requirements are mini- munl. It is believed that practically all mo- tor camps in California comply with thesc requirements and many of them havc sanitary equipment that nothing short of luxurious. Elaborate equip- ment is not essential, however. The maintenance of clean conditions is the most important. THE CArAt. lIMA ISLANDER Judge the Wkole t~y One A corporation may spread itself over the whole world, and may employ one hundred thousand men, but the aver- age person will form his judgment of it through his contact with one indi- vidual. If this person is rude or ineffi- cient, it will take a lot of kindness and efficiency to overcome the bad impres- sion. Every member of an organiza- tion who in any capacity comes in con- tact with the public is a salesman, and the impression he makes is an adver- tisement, good or bad.--Standard Data Digest.
