PAGE TEN SAYS" "You don't look into a man's mouth when he tells you how to catch fish, but you, look at a ,man's actions and tell when he has a 'brain storm.'" "With some anglers the fires of am- bition soon die out when the fish fuel is not right-at the tip of their rod." ,' *** "It takes a lot of education to teach some men the difference between 'want and wish.' What we really want is what we need; but what we wish is what we would like to have." *** "If most of ,us were dropped into heaven as we are, it would not be long before the place would look like a wreck." "Nature has its own language t But we met a man the other day who said: 'When man became dissatisfied with Nature he learned to talk, so that he could conceal his thoughts.'" "Not all anglers can think, reason and catch fish at the same time. And when some anglers step ashore their importance seems to be much larger than the poor fish they brought to gaff, even though the honor was a .'partnership affair?" *** "An educated person is a man or woman who can read a daily news- paper and tell just what parts the editor left out." Several hundred of the "extras" who had been assisting in the filming of Harry Lloyd's sixteenth century pic- ture, "The Sea Hawk," at the Isthmus, returned to the mainland on Friday.

Y.OU'VE SKEN the good type-- OF LADIES, I mean- IN EVERY town, or hamlet YOU'VE resided in. IN AVALON, we all know *** A LADY~ who, when ONE IS taken ill and CONFINED tO feverish AND LONELY hours IN BED, THIS GOOD soul cgn be seen .,$$ * F~RLY IN the morn, and QUITE LATE at night, *** RUSHING TO the sick-bed WITH A steaming bowl of STRENGTHENING broth, A BASKETFULL of warm words OF GOOD cheer, and a HEART I~RIMFUL of kindness. REGARDLESS OF color, race, OR CREED, all are her FRIENDS--be it stranger OR OLD resident. *** HER DAILY duties in her STORE ARE cast aside *** AND NEEDS must wait UNTIL THE ill are well. SHE'S ONE of the ladies *** 1 MEAN, and her station *** IN LIFE is amidst the WAGE-earners. AND, FROM year to year, ANOTHER good lady, OF A HIGHER plane of life, *** COMES TO Avalon to reign IN HER unassuming and GENTLE v a~ SHE AND HER good husband *** LOVE CATALINA Island and .ig* ITS LITTLE family of people, ~t ~t lm AND IN her position she IS ABLE to do, in a different WAY, A GOOD many kind deeds FOR THE sick and needy, also. "AND THE otfier day we learned ***_ THAT THE good lady was UP TO HER annual tricks, WHEN HOSPITAL necessities CAME HURRYING into Avalon AS THE result of her ENTHUSIASM and finances. *lit* SO, BETWEEN this democratic *** RICH LADY, and THE ENERGETIC other lady, I THINK Avalon is well FORTIFIED with strong WALLS OF kindness. DON'T YOU? if you like your home town,'tell" everybody about it. It must be worth liking or you wouldn't like it. And if it is worth liking it is worth talking about. But if you don't like it don't stop at that. Go to work and convert it into a town that you can like.Per- haps the one thing the town most needs may take root in your own brain. BONEF:-SH NOT HERE! Avalon, January 12, 1924. Dear Editor :- Can you inform me if it would be considered sportsmanlike to use a 39- line on a Bonefish ? BONEHEAD. (Editor's Note--Bonefish, like tar- pon, are not found in Catalina waters. Thirty-nine thread lines, Dr. Holder would tell us, if he was alive today, should not be used for fish weighing less than 1000 pounds. Giant bass weighing several hundred pounds have been lifted from the bottom of the sea with 24-thread lines. Bonefish, we un- derstand, are surface fighters, and do not weigh more than twelve to four- teen pounds.) Subscribe now--S2 per year.
