Last month they were paying a dol- lar a pound in New York City for edible fish. Opportunity has an invisible hand that knocks at doors while most folks are sleeping. Are you in love with Avalon ? Help us to sing its praises by subscribing for The Catalina Islander--S2 per year. Railroad officials estimate that 600,- 000 tourists will arrive in Southern California during the next sixty days. Golden thought for our won't-work friends: "God provides food for every little bird, but he doesn't throw it into the nest." A man. can never understand how a woman can enthuse over her bargains after she has waited as lor/g as it took him to earn the money. Praise of Avalon Clean streets is not at all unusual, l~ielp to keep them cleaner by not throwing papers or fruit parings on the streets or side- .... walks. \ "Campus Virginia'! has been: wiped out by the-rnareh of 'progress. Soon the ground formerly covered by the camp will b~ ~:overed ~ith he:it bun- galettes of the Island Villa. Sunday night and early Monday morning was a joyful time for Avalon- ires, for the local weather bureau re- corded .47 of an inch of rain. To date the rainfall for the season is 1.50 inch- es, as against 8.13 inches to the same date last season. Although it niined in Avalon, reports from Middle Ranch for the same period said "No rain."

Bowlegs are becoming a thing of the past. There are so many automobiles on the streets that a pedestrian must be knock-kneed to get through the traffic. Our school buildings are said to be over-crowded. Probably most of the pupils would like to vote themselves a vacation until the new buildings are completed. The California Golf Association has decided that the state amateur cham- pionship this year will be played at Pebble Beach and Del Monte Sep- tember 7-13. When opportunity knocks, don't ex- pect someone else to get up and open the door. Other men often see your opportunities more readily than you recognize them yourself. As we watch some men reeling in their fish, we often wonder if they handle the problems of life with as much loss of energy. Quick-thinking men and women get the most enjoy- merit out of the angling game. The jokes are not always originated by adults. During the recent "Vote School Bonds" propaganda, some of the little school children wrote it: "Vote for School Bombs!" and also read it that way (in error, of course). Mrs. Merrihew says she tohl them that we had enough "live bombs" there as it was, and that what we needed was a commodious powder house in which to let them "explode!" "How much of your life is due to the influence of others," is the caption for our Sunshine Psychology Service article which we had planned to print this week. Other letters have "crowded" this article out. Think over this problem for a week and see if you arrive at the same conclusions that we do. "Motive and Influence" are two "things" that most men for- get in summing up their successes or failures. Visitors who are making the daily trips to Catalina are enjoying one of the most novel forms of entertainment by watching the marvelous high div- ing of the pelicans, and the audacity of the "hell-divers" and small species of sea gulls. These two birds watch the pelicans, and immediately they dive one or both of these robbers are on the job, and betwee6 them the pelicans lose many of their hard-earned meals. -These spectacular displays are pulled off close in-shore, where everyone can see them. Mr. George E. Daul, editor of our "matrimonial page," has been busy dis- mantling "Campus Virginia," and has been unable to attend to his newspa- per duties during the past week. Then, again, several persons whom he thought would get married failed to secure the necessary licenses. Editor Daul says that he gets a headache ev- ery time he thinks about the humor- ous ideas he has in connection with the matrimonial page of the Islander. The page last week was a "scream." Ask Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Stevenson! BIG DRIVE FOR CATHOLIC CHARITIES Commencing February 11 the local workers in charge of the Catholic charities canlpaign will star~ their big drive. Every Avalonite is asked to support this good cause. The drive will last for six days. The work done by the Catholic charities needs no comment. "All na- tionalities look alike" when in trouble, it,. sickness and ill health, seems to be the unwritten paragraph that lwompts these good workers for the poor and needy. And the Avalon workers de- sire to make up their quota of money to the excellent cause. The Catholic Charities are non-sectarian. "- For the big drive that starts Febru- ary 11, under the direction of Rev. Fr. Corcoran of St. Catherine's Church, Mrs." Anna M. Lefavor will be the campaign director and Mrs. Edith Sei- ley will be her assistant. Mrs. Lefavor said: "The goal set for individual contributions this year is 'One Day's Pay.' That is, each Catho- lic to give at least the equivalent of his or her income for a single day. We have been asked to impress upon those we interview that what they subscribe is their gift, not for a month but for the year. "Avalonites have never been back- ward in contributing to any.,good cause. We went over the top m our 'war drives," and I feel very confident that the results of our coming cam- paign will be satisfactory. If our workers fail to call on any person who is interested in donating to the Cath- olic Charities, checks sent to Rev. Fr. Corcoran will be duly credited to the fund. "The organization maintains depart- ments in child welfare, correctional, family welfare, medical, legal and hos- pital social service. The Agencies are the Los Angeles Orphan Asyham, (350 girls). The St. Catherine School, (170 boys) and many other charitable in- stitutions well known to residents of Southern California."
