PAGE FOUR THE CATALINA @ Published by the Students of ~valon High School and Edited b y the Eleventh and Twelfth Year Enl Classes VOLUME XV AVALON HIGH SCHOOL THURSDAY, DECEMBER 19, 1940 BASKETBALL SEASON GETS UNDER WAY .First Came Scheduled For January 11 :Well, basketball season has finally :~started for the Avalon Lancers. With ~the closing of the seven-man touch- ~ football season, the fellows all turned 'their attention toward~asketball, with ~the first game schedule~or January . n. Last Thursday, the boys worked out together for the first time this year. From now on there will be practice every day during the gym classes until :after Christmas, when they will start !working out clown at Sportland. Strange to say, the fellows did not look half bad, although there is much ,room for improvement. ,As yet, the teams have not been completely organized, but there is still plenty of time for that. Coach Smith ,reports that after two weeks of practice at Sportland, he intends to cut the first :team, or Varsity squad, down to eight ,men and the second team to eight or ten. There will also be three other teams, the third, fourth, and fifth. A. H. $. "WOMEN IS FINICKY" That's my opinion, any way. If you have something they want, they are our best friends (next to a rattle snake). But as soon as they get what they want, you and they just aren't on speaking terms any more. Now, just a second, fellows, I will ad- mit there are excentions, and maybe your heart-beat is or~e of them--I won't argue with you; not me, 'cause I love life. and I want to live. But that's getting away from Che point (the far- ther the better). Now, when it comes to age, they will really stretch it. When they are 16, they say they are 18; and when they're 18 they say they are 21. But when they are 21, they are really 18, and when they're 25 they're 21. and so on. You can never tell for sure whether they're 16 or 50. They will say one thing today, and just the opposite tomorrow. I guess the way to find out what they're going to do. is to ask them what they are not goin~ to do. and draw your own con- chJsions. A. H. S.
