We have big ideas for the coming year. Perhaps some of our readers do not like everything they read in The Cat- alina Islander.

In early days we used. to gather news on our bicycle, and now we drive a "flivver." We use the telephone, too, quite frequently. We try to put Catalina "sunshine" into our columns. Here's the great secret, folks: We want a lot more subscribers and ad- vertisers, then we can install a new and larger press! The news press that we print this paper on has been in operation here for nearly nine years, and it was not a new one when we got it~ Last year we installed a new type- setting machine, so that we could get -more words into the twelve pages every week, and if we had a modern news press we could print "great gobs" of 'words that resemble Catalina sun- shine. Now, the paper goes into al- most every country, so we are not anxious to extend our territory as much as we are ambitious to send more papers over the routes we hgve already established. That's for that[ More subscriptions and advertising will enable us to send out more papers, to tell the WORLD what the visitors think of Catalina Island.
