Jack Hannon arrived home Sunday, after a trip as far east as Kansas City. Captain Sam Goulding is visiting one of the mainland spring resorts for a while. Mr. and Mrs. Wilbur VVhite arrived home Thursday, after a pleasant visit to the mainland. The Dorcas Society had its regular meeting Friday evening, at the home of Mrs. O. E. Bailey. Mrs. O. E. Bailey made a business trip to the mainland on Tuesday, via the Wilmington-Catalina Air Line. Mrs. Annette Doherty of the School of International Languages, Los An- geles, was a house guest of Mrs. Ma- tilda Murdock over the week-end. Among Avalonites who sailed for mainland points on the steamship "Av- alon" Sunday afternoon were Mr. and Mrs. P. S. Allen, Mrs. W. D. Burnham and Mrs. C. G. Grant. Macbeth, the man who put the pop in Avalon popcorn, surprised his friends by stepping off the S. S. "Ava- lon" Saturday. It was rumored that he was way back in Florida, but Dame Rumor evidently was in error. The Ladies Aid Society will meet at the C:ommunity Congregational Church Friday, for an all-day session, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. All ladies in- ,vited. Bring a dish of cooked food. The ladies are making preparations for the annual Bazaar and supper, De- cember 6th. A few days ago we received a post card from T. M. Polhamus, city treas- urer of Avalon, who is visiting Mexico City. He is accompanied by Mrs. Pol- hamus, Mr. and Mrs. C'has. H. Pat- rick and Capt. Claude Walton. Tom writes: "This is a nice place, but very warm. Plenty of good eats. Nice w~ter to drink. We are having an excellent vacation." Mrs. O. C. Sikes, grandmother of Eloise Hovey visited the Island in or- der to attend the recital recently giv- en at the Casino. As usual, Mrs. Sikes enjoyed being on the Island and was sorry to leave. Karl Hovey Jr., also was a visitor at Avalon over the same week-end. Karl furnished the percussion accompaniment for several dances in the program. He also re- gretted leaving the Island. The Ladies Aid and the Woman's Missionary Society held their regular meeting at the home of Mrs. Matilda J. Murdoek, 232 Catalina avenue, Fri- day, November 18. After the regular meeting Mrs. D:ickenson gave a very interesting travelogue of her trip over the California State Highway, the Co- lumbia River, and by boat around the Sound, in and out among the islands. There were twenty-six ladies who en- joyed a pleasant tea hour before de- parting for 'home. Eloise Hovey and one of her pupils, Miss Lee Lowry, sailed for the main- land Friday in order to see Myra Kinch, dramatic dancer at the Leo Carillo Theatre on O,lvera Street, Los Angeles. The great dramatic ability of the Los Angeles girl, who created a sensation in Berlin, appealed to gloise and Lee. All the nmnbers were very well done, but the girls liked best the following: Benedietus, a reli- gious dance; an Aztec double mask dance, accompanied only by percus- sion; Mondragoro, a Turkish dance; Dynamic, a whirlwind dance of the New German technique, and Polianka, a comical Russian dance. Otvera street was very interesting to the young ladies. They visited the quaint little shops, watched Mexican women make tortillas, and went through the oldest house in Los Angeles. The girls concluded that the afternoon was one of the happiest and most inter- esting they had spent. P.-T. A. NEWS One of the most interesting pro- grams of the year was presented for the Avalon Parent-Teacher Associa- tion last Wednesday at the high school. The meeting was called to order by the president, Mrs. ~. S. Buffington, the minutes were read and approved. Reports of the various committees were made and Mrs. Buf- fington called the attention of the members to the posting of a bulletin board in the Arcade. Hereafter, no- tice of all meetings will be posted there and everyone is urged to read them. The meeting was then turned over to Mrs. Maekey, program chairman. Miss Dierks' second graders sang two delightful numbers with Miss Elliott directing. This being book week, Mrs. Cowman, the study class leader, reviewed several very fine books on child psychology, and spoke of the great value of books. Miss Rex, school librarian, spoke a few moments on the work being done by the children in the library. She presented four pupils, who, in turn, gave delightful reviews of books they have read recently, one of the girls having written her review in poetry. Each review was well done and we should be proud of the splen- did work Miss Rex is doing with these children. Miss Coppock, who is the instructor in foreign languages, told the mem- bers of the many fine books for chil- dren that have been translated from other languages into our own. The mothers enjoyed looking over these books and the book lists that have been printed containing suitable books for children in the elementary grades were appreciated by all. The Associ- ation wishes to thank Miss Rex and Miss Coppock for this splendid pro- gram and those who were not present missed a rare treat, indeed, After a fine drill in parliamentary law, by Mrs. Carpenter, the meeting adjourned and a beautifully appointed tea was served the mothers by the girls in the eighth grade. Publicity Committee. -- :o:-- Capt: B. D. Halstead, Avalon"s gen- ial harbor master, was taken to the Catalina Hospital last Thursday, suf- fering from pneumonia. The latest re- ports from the hospital attaches is that Capt. Halstead is resting com- fortably and that, ahhough his condi- tion is serious, he is expected to re- cover. Mrs. Halstead is in daily at- tendance on her husband. Captain J. E. Mathewson and Wil- liam C. Sprinkle were among Avalon residents who returned on the noon steamer Sunday. The High School contest for Red CroSs memberships was won by the team composed of Alice Lee Heywood, Dorothy Renfro, Rhoden Williams and Thehna Cameron. These girls are to enjoy the theatre, followed by a party at the home of Miss Bernstein, as a reward for their diligence. The committee wishes to express their ap- preciation to the Avalon Theatre, Hoo- ver's Grocery and the Busy Bee, whose generosity is providing the show and the refreshments which follow. Mrs: Belle Baird of San Bernardino left Sunday for home, after spending several days with her sister, Mrs. B. D. Halstead. Mrs. Alice Smith of Pasadena is visiting her sister Mrs. John Edmun- son, at her home on W'hittley avenue. Eddie Albright, of KNX, and his wife spent the week-end in Avalon. -- :O:-- W. C. T. U. The Avalon W. C. T. U. met with Mrs. Waldman Thursday, November 17, at her Whittl~y avenue home, for a postponed meeting, with ten members present. Rev. John .B. Toomay gave an infor- mal address, in which he stressed the hopeful aspect of what most of us considered our "lost cause". He quoted some one as saying, "Yea, we have lost a battle, hut ~ot the war!" He emphasized the point that we should be more prayerful, and not depend too much on legislation. We should have more instruction in the public schools in temperance. We should also have more uniform munic- ipal laws. After rhe regular meeting we were all invited to the dining room, where Mrs. Waldman served very delicious refreshments of home made cake, ice cream and candy. The W.. C. T. U. is planning to hold and anti-beer rally on December 4th, and a day of prayer on December 5th. Further particulars next week. Publicity Committee. -------- :O:~ SCOUT MEETING The meeting was called to order at 7:30 with the Scout Oath and Law. We then had an O'Grady drill, after which a short patrol meeting was held.
