Due to the strenuous efforts of the new Student Body president, John Marincovich, a pep assembly was held Wednesday morning, October 6: Coach Smith introduced the A team with a bang, telling of their greak and num- erous merits. The B team was talked of in glowing words by Junior Coach Thomson. Mr. Arnold told the as- sembly what he thought of their" school spirit in no uncertain teruls. These talks must have done some good as the cheers for their old Ahna M3.ter rang out loud, long, and lusty. Although it would have been hard not to join in with everything they had when led by such peppy leadersas Helen Greig and Peggy King. A. H. ~.. BOOK PROJECT ~TARTED Going into the first grade room you will find that they too, can work as hard as some of the higher grades. Everyone is busy doing Something or other. They are all well behaved and they find no trouble in doing their work well. Among the things they are making are: wall paper, kodak books, book- covers, and books about Black Sambo and the Three Bears. A book shop is being made in which to put their books. Over the shop, which is called "Our Story Hour", they have erected an awning, which makes the store quite attractive. A. H. $. SOCCER STAR DEPARTS FOR THE MAINLAND Jack Ginter left us last Friday, Oct. 8, for Los Angeles, where he will make his home from now on. 'He has been one of our most outstanding soc- cer players. Jack will attend one of three schools: Manual Arts, Los An- geles High or Fairfax. Avalon will miss him and we all wish Jack a hap- py and pleasant stay and that he will return to see us m the future The field was in perfect condition for the first soccer g:ime of the sea- son with the Catalina Island School for Boys. Catalina scored the first goal in the first 10 seconds of play. However, Avalon quickly recovered when Manuel Hernandez made the first goal for Avalon. At the end of the first quarter the score remained i-1. The second quarter was very bad for Avalon, Catalina making two goals to Avalon's one. At the end of the half the boys hada five-minute rest. The score remaining 3-2. In the third quarter the Avalon .team.was unable to score while Cata- lina made one retire. The score then being 4-2. In the fourth quarter boys from Catalina made one and so did Alfonso Bermudez for Avalon. Both teams were showing up very well. The out- standing players for Avalon were Si- las Hathaway, the captain aud, full- back, Manuel Hernandez, who made the first and second goal, and Alfonso Bermudez, who made the last goal. All of the bc~ys gave everything .they had, having nmch support from the side lines. The line-ups were as follows: Harrington , G Lawler J'. Kilgour R.G. Manning J. Ginter L.G. Mel M. Hernandez C.I.

EDITORIAL It's school spirit that we need! It's what we want! It's what we're going to get if it takes all of Johnny Marin- covich's senior year to give it to us. We owe a lot to Johnny. The pep assembly and the idea of having yell leaders both came as a result of a Marincovich brain storm. With the cooperation of Peggy King and Helen Greig, John was able to put over his plans very successfully. He asked for a big turn-out for the first soccer game cf the season '"We want to show our boys that we're in- terested in their sports; we want to encourage them, and we want them to uphold the honor of Avalon High by playing fair Square, and hard. We want them to know that we are root- ing for them, so when Helen and Peggy say ,/ell--Iet% M1 yell'!" Sports are not the only activities that need a big turn-out. All school affairs need the support of the stu- dent body--candy sales, public appear- ances, school plays, pageants, school dances, anti everything which concerns Avahm High ! For the first time in many years Avalon High shows a school spirit. Students seem anxious to hold offices, make money, offer ideas for improve- ment and participate in school af- fairs. The Junior Carnival is some- thing that will boost this school spirit. All right, now remember you have Avalon High as something to be loyal to, to work for, and uphold as an ex- ample for other small schools. Lets be able to say: "It's not our size; it's our spirit !"- Three cheers for Avalon ! Rah! Rah! Rah ! Let's get inthere and fight !--Blanche Maekey.
