Since there have been big turnouts on Thursday nights, a few of the teen-agers have suggested having similar affairs on Monday nights.  Last Monday quite a few kids were seen having a swell time dancing, playing ping-pong and watching a movie.  Everyone of high school or college age is invited to come and have a real crazy time from 7:30 to 10:30 every Monday night for the duration of the summer.

The bazaar will have a large stock of new merchandise donated by our generous San Diego merchants and will be sold at bargain prices. A $25.00 U.D.
