The library being in the school building enables the librarian and the teachers to co-operate, and the demand for books is said to be great, the library being kept open from noon till 5:30 p. m. for every school day instead of twice a week as heretofore. Each class has been provided with certain days and times to get books, which prevents crowding and permits the librarian to give greater individual attention and advice in selecting books. "Under this system,' states Miss Emily Dabney, the librarian, "the children get individual attention and advice in selecting books. A great deal of damage to a child's mind may result from reading a book too mature for him or her. We may have books in the library adapted to childern of all ages, and seek to train the boys and girls in reading the right books at the right age. -o- DANCING CLASS AT LOCAL SCHOOL Classes in ballroom dancing are held each week in the auditorium of the San Marino Grammar school for the seventh to the ninth grades. The admission is 30 cents each, and on the average of fifty- children attend each evening. These classes commenced two weeks ago.

APPROACHING I THANKSGIVING I Practical thropy before Club TUESDAY NIGHT'S PROGRAM INCLUDED STORY OF INDUSTRIES • un——IIH——INI—»II- Ï Gratitude is the noblest oblation mankind can pay. Ingratitude is the basest characteristic a human can display. Thursday of the coming week ushers in the day set aside from Armerica's earliest history for giving thanks to the "Giver of every good and perfect gft." Let us keep that day in the spirit that actuated the fathers and mothers who laid the foundations of our government and gave us civil and religious liberty. Thanksgiving Should not be confined to any particular day, but should accompany every day. Nevertheless it is well to devote one particular day to this too oft neglected service—"Lest we forget—Lest we forget." I It was an extremly appealing story presented to the members of the City Club assembled at the grammar school on Tuesday evening. Mr. H. A. R. Carlton, the superintendent of the Community In-dutries of Los Angeles, introduced by program chairman, G. A. Hooper, made a shrt address explaining the work of his organization and introduced a series of moving pictures depicting the various steps, proving beyond question the constructive character of the work. Mrs. Carlton, with Mrs. Lindsey at the piano gave a fine baritone selection.. Harry Kellogg, of Pasadena, gave a baritone solo, " Mother of Mine," There was a liberal acceptance of sacks at the close of the meeting to be filled and left at the Pasadena office of the Industries at 716 So. Fair Oaks. No finer method of human helpfulness was ever devised than that of this organization and the Goodwill Industries operating along identical lines. It was a large and jolly crowd of Merchant Plumbers of Southern California and their friends which met at the Vista del Arroyo Saturday evening for banquet, followed by cards, dancing and music by Frank Guigers' quartet. George E. Richardson, of San Marino, president of the local branch and vice president of the federation, acted as master of ceremonies. Robert L. Daugherty, chairman of the City Board of Directors, greeted the gathering as representative of the city of Pasadena. L. E. Remy, president of the federation, gave a talk on business. Charles Swinnerton, national director of the Master Plumbers' Association, spoke on national conditions. C. L. Dawson, vice president of the guaranty office of the Security First National Bank, also spoke, his subject being "Credits." George Israel, secretary of the local Builders' Exchange, was one of the speakers, as was Walter Baxter, who talked co-operation, representing the executive committe of Wholesale Jobbers of Southern California. W. F. Creller and E. O. Nay were members of the entertainment committee. Mrs. W. A. Swi-hart, president of the ladies' auxiliary, assisted by Mrs. W. F. Creller and Mrs. A. C. Hanson, was in charge of the arrangements for the card party. Among those present were members from Indio, San Diego and Santa Barbara. -o- Welfare LOCAL POUCE COURT NEWS Judge Northrup's court had the usual grist of traffic violation cases on Tuesday, seven in all.
