ASSEMBLY IS PEPPY A pep assembly was held in the Can- 5'on Wednesday October 7, to deter- mine who will :be the ~;elt leader ]?or the year. The assembly was slow in starting because the Lettermen, or should it be said the "Letterwomen" were causing a lot of talk. After the usual patriotic opening, Coach Walker gave a fine talk on "School Spirit" in which he said that. "We should support our team all we can. Being small shouldn't handicap US." This was followed by a very good talk from Mr. Moore, who is coaching the second team. He backed up what Coach Walked had said. Then the temporary team captain spoke--first, Orman Carter for the first team; and then Bill Jukes and Bud Hite for the second. All made some good points. Coy Hite then lead the Student Body in the try out. She was followed by Wanda Rogers and Betty Welander. Coy was successful in obtaining the po- sition, but both teams displayed fine Sch6ol spirit and a lot of pep. NOTICE ! The Cafeteria is in need of some- one to take the job of selling ice cream during the fourth period. Orman Carter has consented to fill the job until some other student is located. The compensation for this job is two dishes per day in the Cafeteria and 20 merits per quarter. Any student wishing it should see Miss Black. Come on, students, show your school spirit by backing up this Student Body enterprise~ O" STUDENTS ATTENTION ! Anyone who has an idea for a memorial, for Mr. Thomson please, hand it in at the office. The suggestions which have been made are as follows: (1) hnprove lighting system in canyon. (2) A new machine for the shop with a dedicatory plate. (3) Perpetual trophy for some purpose STOP ! LOOK! LISTEN! The f~rst year Spanish class is hav- ing quite a time. Miss Ball has been giving a tot of tests and quizes lately Not mentioning any names, but some of the students feel that these tests are graded a little too hard. May be if these students would do a little .study- ing in class, instead of talking, they would get along better. ELEMENTARY GRADES GIVEN TESTS This week the Fourth and Fifth grades are being" tested for general reformation by Miss Gross. As a re- sult of these tests the needs of the in- dividual pupil may be found and the work of the classroom adjusted to the individual's needs. A reading survey is also being made throughout the various Sixth grade classes of the Long Beach system. AvalGn is also being tested and the results will be compared with those in Long Beach schools. Avalon is fortu- nate to have smaller classes in which the teacher may give aid to those who are having reading difficulties. Our library facilities are also helping in keeping up our reading standards. A. H. S. "KING ARTHUR" STUDIED The twelfth year English class is reading the "Idylls of the King" by Tennyson. It was from thi~ book that Mrs. Whittley got her idea for naming the city of Avalon, The story tells of the rise and fall of King Ar- thur and his knights of the Round Table, and of their search for the Holy Grail. A. H. S. FA:SHION COLUMN OF A.H.S. American girls are said to be the best groomed girls of the world today Most of ns are glad to hold this title, but are we living up to it? The ma- jority are, but what about the rest? ~ it doesn't matter what the color of your hair, eyes, or even your skin, it's how you treat these features that counts Did you notice how remarkable Olive Van Treese looked in that "red outfit" she wore Wednesday ? Jerry Batho's new hair-do looked terribly cute, espe- cially with that pleated skirt, and yel- low sweater. She looked as if she had just .stepped from a storybook And iwhile talking about clothes, don't we all wish we knew how to pick and wear our clothes as Miss Hill does ? Bye for now, but we'll be seeing you in this same line next week. A. H. S. SCIENCE ACTIVITIES Physics people are beginning their work on simple machines. To start with, they had no idea of what the principle of movement was. , The Biology class is working 'on the chemistry of Biology, and is going to do food testing The General Science class did quite well on the first test, and has now started on the study of water, learn- ing the difference between evaporation and condensation. A. H. S. For health, or change, or play, or ,rest. Catalina is the best.

EDITORIAL One of the ideas that we Americans have is that of giving everyone an even chance. We all believe this to be a good policy, but the question is, "Do we practice it? To judge by some of our recent as- semblies, it would seem that this idea has been temporarily forgotten. Some of ou-r guests and students who are speaking, have been constantly inter- rupted by loud talking and even heck- ling. For some people, .speaking before an assembly is a very difficult task and to be constantly interrupted makes this job twice as hard. To cause this com- motion, is not giving the speaker the even chance he deserves. These assemblies are held for your benefit and enjoyment. It is your duty to participate in them, when called upon to do so, and if not, to listen to the speakers with attention and cour- tesy. To fail to do this only hinders the work that our school is trying to do for you. Also, visitors who might be present, receive a very bad impression 'of our school But, most of all, we are forgetting that idea of giving everyone an even chance So, at the next assembly lets give our speakers a break Lets begin again to practice that good, old Ameri- can idea.
