The groom is well known in local and social circles, being a member of the Greeters of Past Adjutant and Vice-Corn- of Catalina Island Post of the American Legion, and is at present Master of the local lodge of Masons. He has been connected with the Island Villa and Hotel Atwater for the past ve years, coming to Catalina after the of the world war. He enlisted at the outbreak of the war, and served as Sergeant over-seas for two years. Mr. Stevenson and his bride arrived in Avalon on day before yesterday's steamer, and were given a right hearty reception as .they left the pier. Many pounds of rice were showered over the happy young people, and they were required to pose for a photo- graph before being permitted to escape to the shelter of the Atwater Hotel. There they were the recipients of some handsome presents, including a neat suitcase and a complete toilet set for the bride, and a substantial travel- ing bag for the groom. The Catalina Islander joins with the balance of the COmmunity in congratulations and good wishes. Though Douglas Fair- banks and Mary Pickford came over on the same boat, they were not "in it" with the bride and groom. P.
