Ren- ton, vice-president and general man- age of the Santa Catalina Island Corn- pany, which was also sent to the along with other documents, a Copy of our issue of December 3, 1924, will be placed in the corner stone of the Ava- lon High School, now under construct- ion, which is to be dedicated by the Grand Officers of the Free and Ac- cepted Masons on Saturday next, Dec- ember 6, 1924. Some day the corner stone of the !present building will be removed for a newer and larger building and other people of another generation, will read these lines. Possibly some of them nmy attend the Catalina l:niversity. So, we printed the telephone directory to show posterity that we wanted as many as possible here today in Avalon to get his or her name in the corner stone Of course, it is impossible to i put some 2000 names in the issue of the paper this week, on short notice, and to tell all about the ceremony three days before it happens; but by printing the telephone directory we concluded that the generations that are to come--those attending the Cata- lina University--would tmderstand that a telephone number indicated that there were several persons residing or working within the sound of the tinkle of the bell. As instance; "Windle's ~mmunity work in Avalon, have been eudered invitations tb participate in the ceremonies Franklin's St. Catherine Hotel or- ehestra will furnish ritualistic and pa- !rlotic music for the occasion which It i s planned to make as impressive as possible, and at the same time i confining it to a reasonable length of urtle, I The committee in charge of the ar- | .rangements for the corner stone laying | is COmposed of the following members | o1 the Masonic Lodge: Hugh Steven- [ son, Master (Ex-officio); Albert B.
