O'Hara RW Adams D. Peterson RG D. VaUes GG Thomson H. White RG Krag B. Taylor LH Clippe The substitutes for Avalon were Gale Paulson and George Mobias.

Advertising is the inseparable com- panion of business success. logically correct for the age youngster in whose hands it will be placed, Keeping faith in, this respect, The Macmillan Company has just publish- ed Little Brown Hen, a book which might be dubbed a primer. On every page are pictures done in the brilliant hues which so delight the eye of the child reading his first book--or, so to speak, reading it over mother's shoul- der. The story is entrancing-~-of a little Snowshoe Rabbit who lacked cou.rage. In fact he was such a coward that when he met Red Fox one day and Red Fox promised not to eat Little Snowshoe Rabbit if he would take him to Little Brown Hen, Snowshoe just couldn't say no. But the way the plot was foiled is a tale that children will love and want re,told again and again. 8*" DUSTY DESERT TALES By Louise McKee and Richard Summers Indians, their beliefs, their legends and the manner in which those legends originate, holds fascination for every person raised in America. Who, as a child has not played "Indians" and to this day does not read such novels as "Drums Along the Mohawk" with avid interest for its depiction of ~Indian color. No doubt bearing this thought in mind, The Caxton Printers bring forth another of their beautifully hand made books, Dusty Desert Tales. As there was Roman and Greek mythology so there is Indian but it is far more obscure. With .Indians of the Southwest, story-telling is religion, education and entertainment. It is an praise," was the Golden Text. One of the Scriptural selections in- eluded these verses from Luke: "And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain ; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people. Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her. And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not. And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said. Young" man, I say unto thee, Arise. And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother." The Lesson-Sermon presented also these statements from the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy: "The humble Nazarene overthrew the supposition that sin, sickness, and death have power. He proved them powerless." "Nothing can interfere witb the harmony of being nor end the existence of man in Science." At Catalina you'll always feel gay. There's laughter and merriment all thru the day.
