"O APPRECIATIVE Jan. 27, 1938. Editor Catalina Islander: Dear Sir: Ever since coming to spend the winter at this lovely haven of rest, I've been writing to my rela- tives and friends, telling them of the wonders of this lovely island. At the ticket office of the Steam- ship Co. I get pamphlets, showing pic- tures of the various points of inter- est here. i number each picture, and in a letter, at corresponding numbers, I give in detail" a description of each place pictured in the pamphlet. These pamphlets I have sent to rel- atives and friends back home, and i have received letters from so many, expressing their desire to visit Cata- lina Island. However, in today's copy of your paper I read a description of so many things I hadn't thought of, giv'en so beautifully and so interestingly by Belle K. Kendall. I imnaediately hastened to procure several copies of the paper so that I might send them "back home". It was a splendid article and I hope the writer will continue to describe the delightful places to be seen on this island, as she knows just how to do so. She may be a regular contributor to your paper, but being a newcomer I do not know. Yours for more articlesfrom the pen of Belle K. Kendall. Very Truly Yours, Elizabeth R. Hnssey. O- Catalina Island--the place where quietness and repose soothe ragged nerves and renews health and happi- ness. SEND THE ISLANDER TO SOME FRIEND WHO KNOWS CATALINA HAS YOUR SUBSCRIPTION EXPIRED?

Yes, they sure are, and with another new Rifle record of 891. Led by that famous Microbe chaser, Ralph Hmnphries, those Microbes rolled the highest game and series yet scored on the Avalon alleys. They spanked the Earth Worms with a three-game series of 776-806-907 for a total of 2485. Just how much chance an Earth Worm has against a Night O~vl will be found out Sunday, on the softball diamond. These two teams meet at 2:45, after the Microbes and Broncos tangle at 1:15. Six of the eight rifle teams shot for better than 800 this week. Ten weeks ago the best team was 775. If the Broncos can take the Mi- crobes into camp during the coming week, they have a great chance to gain ground in their four-cornered fight with the Microbes, Goblins and Buc- caneers for third place. The Catalina Hardware Bowlers got hot and took three points from Glenn's Market Monday night. Just four and one-half weeks to go, and it still is a great race between the Vultures and Night O~vls to see who eats that big feed at the St. Cath- erine. Saturday those battling basketeers of the local High School will meet the Excelsior High in two games at Sport- land. Don't miss them. Also the (lance afterwards and have a good time. ~o~ Dr. Strathearn was an Avalon visitor Sunday, accompanied by Dr. Kennedy.
