O'Brien, Washington Pat- ent Lawyer, with entertaining infor- olation about one of our popular citi- zens, Don L. Alger, who has been re- warded for his ingenuity with the grant of United States Letters Patent upon an anmsement game. The pat- cnt was issued January 3, 1933. In detail, the game includes a play- ing board with an indicator arranged on one side. On the board are a se- ries of pens and other hazards. The object of the game nmch to the eta- joyment of its patrons, is to direct the game pieces into the pens having the largest score. As an added at- tr: ction to the game, the inventor pro- the game pmces w|th a small sp ing motor and decorates them to re resent bugs or beetles. At a cer- tain time theplayers release their DtlgS and thespring motor causes them to crawlover the playing field and into the pens. The game is very .attractive from the amusement stand- point and should prove to be a lucra- tive investment for the inventor. The details of construction are designed to promote economy of manufacture and the upkeep for repair bills is compar- atively small.- -~-- : 0 : -~-- An ornamental mortar and pestle was found last week by Mrs. J. Car- ter of Pump Station No. 1, near Eagle's Nest. The mortar is seven inches in diameter and four inches in height. The interior of the food grinder is two inches deep. The mor- tar is unlike any before found on Cat- alina Island. It has beefi worked out of a solid piece of coarse granite and has an ornamental "tripod stand base". The pestle is three inches in length and one and three quarters inches in diameter at the base. Be- cause of the unusual coarse:hess of the stone, several seeds had become imbedded into the pestle, indicating that eentuies ago the Catalina Indians used grain or corn in their food pro- ducts.

Gentlemen : Having been fortunate enough to find your capital prize of Pirate Gold of $100, I heartily extend my thanks to you for it, as well as for a most delightful trip and day spent on your enchanted Catalina Island. This was nty first trip, but I can assure you that it will not be my last. Yours very truly, (Signed) T.R. Mueller. January 3, 1933. Mr. Y R. Mueller, 807 So. Westlake Ave., Los Angeles, Calif. Dear Mr. Mueller: We appreciate your letter of De- cember 31st advising that the capital prize of $100 in pirate gokt was found by you and we are immensely pleased that you were fortunate enough to cash in on your trip to Catalina. The beau{y of the trip is that every time you go, you "cash in" on pleas- ure and healthful activity, and we prize very highly the friendship of the hundreds of thousands of people who love the Island. Again thanking you for your" letter and with best wishes for the New Year, we are, Very truly yours, J. N. Stewart, V. P. & T. M. Over the Christmas holidays, the $50 token was found by Tony W'allace, of Austin, Texas, as he was entering the Bird Park. Tokens of lesser denomi- nations were found by visitors at var- ious places in Avalon, including the golf links, the Hotel Atwater, the Ca- sino, the pottery shops, in the post of- rice, and along the board walk. One taken of $10 was found near the fish market on the Pleasure Pier. DID IT EVER OCCUR TO YOU By Harry Diffin That we should all adopt the slogan BUY CATALINA? Begin now. We can hell) ourselves by spending what we earn HERE. That eool)eration promotes strength; strength promotes stability; stability promotes good business; good business promotes employment ; employment promotes a living? That we are all riding on a detour road? It's rather bumpy; but if we BUY CATALINA we will soon have money enough to repair the main highway of success and aga,in be rid- ing smoothly. That perfect team work made pos- sible in 1932 a great University of Southern California football aggrega- tion ? That team work in this community can make conditions better in 1933? --Buy Catalina. That the merchants, the city gov- ernment and the Santa Catalina Is- land Company should work hand in hand--and neither one be found dis- ingenous ? That if you have a think should be heard, don't thrash it out upon the street corners; take it up with some one who is in a position to be of service to you. Try it. -- :0:~ Nothing Wrong Mother was very annoyed. "Bertie," she said, "I thought I told you not to play with your tin soldiers on a Sunday. It's very wrong." "That's all right, mother," replied the boy. "On Sunday, I call them the Salvation Army."--The Forester. In accordance with these orders Col- lector Welch will snail on January 3, 1933 about 200,000 Income Tax forms to individuals, corporations, partner- ships and fiduciaries who and which made returns for 1931 and are thus on his mailing list. Under the new law, the Act of 1932, there will be thousands o~ persons li- able for returns who will not receive a form by mail, as their names are not on the Collector's mailing list. This is due to the fact that every single person whose net income was $1000.00 or more and every married person whose net income was $2500.00 or nmre in 1932, must make a return-- and pay tax if any be due, and every person whose gross income was $5000 or more nmst file a return regardless of net income. The Collector advises all persons knowing themselves liable under the above stated exemptions, to apply to his office or any of its branches, for the proper forms as fail- ure to receive one by mail will not excuse any person from penalty for delinquency. Under the Act of 1932 the normal tax rates are 4% on the first $4000.00 of net income and 8% on all over $4000.00 The. surtax attaches on all income over $6000.00 and runs from 1% on incomes of from $6000.00 to $10,000.00, up to 55e,~ on incomes of over $1,000,01)0. There is no deduction for earned in- come under the present law. All returns for 1932 Income Tax nmst be filed on or before March 15, 1933 or be subject to a penalty of 250~ of the delinquent tax. If filed on time the tax may be paid in quarterly in- stallments, the first payment when the return is filed and the other three not later than June 15, September 15, and December 15, 1933. Collector Welch urges everyone re- ceiving a form by mail to prepare and file it without delay, and warns those not on his mailing list to provide themseh'es with the proper blanks. -- :O:-- YACHTING NEWS By Skipper The week-end brought a few yachts to Avahm and along the coast as the weather was delightful for cruising, and those yachtsmen who made the trip, enjoyed it immensely.
