Covina Making Great Preparations To Celebrate the Advent of Summer. What will Covina do next? Well, we were ju»t going to tell you. Being a live town, It is necessary to lie "ribbing" up something all the time. This is the first announcement. Merely the explanation of plans. And we've got the right idea as usual. On Saturday, May 1st, Covina will put on festive clothes. Remember the old May-Day festivals "back yonder?" Covina is to havo a May-Day festival. All t!i« children who like a good time, the whole grammar school if possible, will gather around a May-polo (don't you know what a May-polo is?) and have a May-pole dance right up in the center of the tov/n on Citrus avenue. Pretty -vhitc and pink drosaos, pretty white and pink and yellow and orange streamers on the May-polo and all kinds of games and exercises right in the open air where the crowds of people may HOC. Then we are to havo some running races, bicycle races, sack races, potato races, Human raceo, brass band and horsc'-fihoo pitching in the main street too. All thia will bo a part of the big May-Day festival, when the merchants of Covina will koop wide open house all day, selling things at good bargains. It will bo an all-day affair. People will como from miles around and the town will bo crowded all day.. Wurner-Whlt- sel Company, Broadwoll's store, the People's store, Ouster's furniture establishment, tho two drug stores, Home's grocery," and in fact every .business .house in, town. w,lU Ivnvo .something to soil at a bargain, Friday, tho day before, tho Argua will appear ono day ahead of schedule with a special edition for tho festival, filled full of articles about tho allair, program of tho day and pages of ad- vertiscmoritB of tho different merchants. Already tho boosters arc out and we're going to havo a big day of it. Watch for tho full announcement in next week's Argus, and romombor tho dato. It is easy to remember tho dato, for it is May-Day, beautiful May, tho queen of tho carnival springtime. Good prizes are to bo ottered to tho children in tho May-polo exorcises, and in nil the sports, So now you soo thoro is something to look forward to and talk about. GENERAL MEETING.

Judsc Wilbur of Los Angeles, the judgo nf fho evening, awarded tho debato to Covina upon delivery, but the; markings of tho judges on the thought and composition of tho papers outbalanced his decision and the debate was awarded to Kl Monte upon that score. In delivery our speakers excelled El Monte at every point. Fred Chemberlen, Co- vlna's second speaker, secured 69 out of a possible 60 points on the superiority of his delivery. Chemberlen will be one of our best debaters next year. Luella Roberts, our first speaker, did excellent work and was very superior to El Monte's second speaker, Edith Carver in delivery. It was only on the excellence of tbelr written papers that El Monte secured the debate. If this had been an oratorical contest Covina would have won by a big score. The final decisions were: El Monte, 184'^; Covina, 171 points. Tho question for our debate with Hollywood High for the championHhip of Southern California In debating Is this: "Resolved, That the Present Distribution of Power Between State and Fedo Government Calls for Readjustment In fho Direction of Further Centrallxal Ion of power.
