With the opening of classes Sep tember 4, Superintendent H. M. Roland disclosed that the average expenditure for libraris, such as are housed in the buildings depict ed here, has been 80 cents per pupil during the last five years.

Then we went for a ride. That’s all. I’m heading north this afternoon to finish my vacation — where, I haven’t decided yet.” Miss Warren headed north right after lunch today to be a brides maid at a wedding in Oakland.

And I’m a man who likes to get close to nature.” Folsom said he didn’t even know he was coming to California until his plane was 2,000 feet up in the air. “Then I just told the pilot to head west,” he went on. “And when we got to California I got an urge to visit the Warrens.

Graves said his “high-spirit ed and excitable” wife was sub ject to fits of anger in which she “screeches so loudly that even I, though deaf, can hear.” Short attacked him with the knife. “He kept coming at me until I had fired the last shot,” Dayton said.
