THE AMERICAN CREED I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a re- imblic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established on those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American pa- triots sacrificed lives and fortunes. REVIVES MEMORIES MANY YEARS AGO (Editor's Note: The following let- ter, written by Mr. Joe Welsh of Pas- adena, will be of interest to many read- ers. The brief account of the Avalon- ites trip to Deatb Valley enabled Mr. Welsh to recall many fond memories of the early days. Call again, Joe. Thank you.) Pasadena, December 2, 1927. Editor Catalina Islander: In your valued issue of November 30th I note nmch that interests me, and that you water dogs dared enter the precincts of those hallowed spots that I have trod--sometimes rode, by mule, stage coach and auto. Yes, 35 years ago I blazed much of you water dogs trails. Whet], from Pasadena to Mojave via mule team was three days; from Mojave to Olanche (that is O~'- ens Lake), three days and two nights by stage. Here we arrived at Darwin, on the east side of Owens Lake. Thence boarded the Carson & Colora- do Railway for Hawthorn--one day and night. Thence stage to Bodie, one day. Met at Bodie by Farrington boys team to take us forty nfiles to Silver Lake. Cost,-$I05. Red Rock Canyon is the same as it was 35 years ago. Multiplied by 6000 would bring about the time when Cat- alina might have been a-burning. Yes. the old t'acific once covered it all. Did you notice on top of those beau- tiful cathedrals and mosaic temples the great lava beds, crumbling down even now? Their offerings of lava show how late the volcanic age. in that sec- tion had its day in Nature. Puffed up front below the ocean's bed through the layers of deposited sandstone of a nfillion years or more, fossilizing fish and shells. Yes, we had a wide swath of ocean before Catalina was tossed up as one of the sparkling gems of the ocean. But the country you describe, ~rom lreath Valley to the base of Mt. Whit. BIG MUSICAL EVENT "The Easter and Christmas cantatas the past few years, rendered by our enlarged choir under the leadership of Arthur T. Stevens, our regtdar church music director, have been outstanding musical events in the history of Ava- lon," says Rev. LaRue C. Watson, pas- tor of the Conmmnity Con~regational Church of this place. "~ The Christmas cantata to be rende,- ed at the church at 7:00 P. M. next Sunday promises to be bigger and bet- ter, even, that] the ones that have gone before. It is entitled "Peace on Earth," and was written by E. K. Hyser. The chorus contains nearly thirty voices, in- cluding the regular Community Church choir increased by additions from St. Catherine's Church choir and other sources.
