ASSEMBLY NEWS Tuesday, November 17, Air. Dunkle called an assembly fol a few minutes to announce the fact that Mr. W. P. Rankin from the Long Beach Poly High School would be in Avalon for a few days and that he would give two lectures on astronomy Friday and Saturday evenings in the High School building. He also stated that on Fri- day he would talk to the science class- es during the last period, and that any one from any of the other classes might attend provided that they ob- tained permission from their class room teacher. He also brought before the student body, in behalf of the commission, the fact that the expenses of the visitor should be taken care of. He suggest- ed that there be a candy sale on Fri- day after school. This suggestion was greeted, with great enthusiasm. The candy for this sale was donated by the different students or parents, as this visit was a benefit to the school and to the public. SUGAR LOAF ELEVENTH YEAR ENGLISH The eleventh year English class has produced several good speakers this term. Two of these you heard at the P.T.A. meeting Thursday. These two were Grace Tregarthen and Catherine MacKay. Did you notice how well they spoke? How well they pronoun- ced their words ? Also their standing positions ? These pupils owe their success to their English teacher, Mr. Robinson, who has been drilling them in the proper way of delivering an address. " He has also given them especial work in word pronounciation. These pupils are not the only ones to be made good orators from Air. Rob- inson's classes. Last year he tutored the pupils who entered in the National Debating contest. Keep it up, stu- dents, and perhaps we will win a place in the debating contest this year. NEW SHIPMENT Are we improving? Well I guess, yes! This ~veek we received a ship- ment of new cupboards, which are to be used in various ways. Among them was a gym locker, in which all the girls equipment is to be kept, such as volley balls, tennis balls, tennis racquets, basket and soccer balls. But, best of all, we received our bulletin boards, so now, when we want any- thing to be made known at school, all we have to do is to post it on the bulletin boards, instead of writing it on the black boards in every room. NEW PUPILS One by one we are increasing in number. This week we have two new members enrolled in the Junior High School. These two are Loretta and Louis Sullivan by name, and they come to us from North Dakota, with a very good record of work accom- plished in the past. It is our hope that both the Junior and Senior High will continue to increase in numbers. SUGAR LOAF Remember ! Students, three bells mean an as- sembly, so come directly to the as- sembly hall whenever you hear them. And Then, The Lamp Went Out The storm raged! Thunder crashed! It all happened in the assembly hall, too. Onlookers beheld branches wav- ing wildly from behind the screens; a terrifiic noise rumbled violently forth, filling the hall with a terrible racket I But/ don't be nervous, reader, it was only the senior class presenting its vaudeville acts. There were five feat- ures to the performance. The open- ing number, a popular song, was cheer- fully warbled. Then, "The Lamp Went Out," a one-act play, was given. This was the main feature of the pro- gram. The cast was as follows: Mrs. Devier, Doris Wilcox; Evelyn Devier, Martha Meyer; Ralph Grayson, Mary Gibson; Herbert Vanderslice, Robert Garcia, and the Lamp, Arthur Gould- ing. The seniors extend a vote of thanks to Arthur and Patsy for their kind assistance in helping to stage this dramatic performance. Next, a short alphebetical skit was put on. PA, MA, QT, AB, MD, and TB were the principle letters used to give this act. The program was concluded by a uni- son song and a parody on "Ruben, Ruben," rendered by two members of the senior class. The returns from this entertainment were the first to be raised for the Torqua fund this year. We're off !

The announce- ments that were sent home were re- sponded to in a very satisfactory manner. Every student, teacher, and parent has shown a great spirit of co- operation. But, parents, do not wait until "Know Your School Day" comes around again, visit school any day, and we will be glad to assist you in every way possible. ATHLETICS Girls' Athletics Collegiates Victories The result ot a game of speedba.ll played on the local Hi schoolgrounds November 16th, between the Co-eds and Collegiates, was a score of 3-0. Never did a losing side fight as hard as the Co-eds and not bring in a score. Passing from one player to another was done more skillfully, but still they did not gain a point. Both sides were quite successful in keeping each play- er in her own territory. Every girl, especially Patsy Lee, is becoming quite adept in taking punishment. $-3 Wednesd~ay, November 18, another game of speedball was played by the Collegiates and Co-eds. While dress- ing foi- gym the Co-eds said they had a hunch that they were going to win. Everything was lovely at first, 'til a score of 2 was made by the Collegiates in the first quarter. This made the Co-eds see where they had to get down and hustle. In the second quarter the Co-eds were more successful and after many attemps to make a field goal, finally succeeded, making the score 3-2 to their benefit. Some beautififl kicking was done or* both sides, and fine guarding on the part of the Co-eds, but all in vain--a field goal was kicked by the Collegi- ares, making a total score of 5-3. So far the games have been: Co-eds 1, Collegiates 4. But by the number of points the Collegiates are only 3 ahead of the Co-eds. Co-eds, Rah-Rah-Rah ! Luck came the Co-eds way Friday morning, when they and Collegiates began to play a game of speedball. All players were present at the begin- ning of the game. The Co-eds are more successful in keeping their po- sitions while playing. Through con- tinuous practice the head and elbow punch is being perfected. SUGAR LOAF Field Note Over the week-end and during the first part of the week the steam roller has greatly improved the athletic field and the driveway. After a few rains and occasional rolling the field will be in fine condition. SUGAR L(~AF 26's The Senior 26's have come and, my, but you should see those Seniors! Gracious! You'd think butter wouldn't melt in their mouths the way they strut around gazing intently at their blue and white 26's, and the poor un- der elassmen's looks of envy--well, we hope they won't look that way very long--their faces might set.
