"Why, i have spent two and a half millions since we arrived on the Pacific Coast last month. It takes money to buy boats, build 750 bungalettes and carry on the wttew project at Middle Ranch.

MOTHER SEAL HAS TWINS AND BECOMES FAMOUS By Science Service The first seal twins ever known to science have been reported to the U. S. Bureau of Fisheries at Washington, D.C. Commissioner Henry O'Malley has been informed by Assistant Agent E. M. Ball of Sitka, Alaska, that a mother seal with two pups has been killed at sea twenty miles off Biorka Island. The babies weighed five pounds, 11 ounces, and one pound, eight ounces. One had a good coat of hair, while the other was almost hairless. A normal seal pup weighs about six pounds and twelve ounces. Only natives in need of food are al- lowed to kill seals at sea. In the days before pelagic killing was made illegal the seals were threatened by extinc- tion on account of the wholesale slaughter of females before they had a chance to raise families. Now only males are killed for fur, and last year out of 32,000 animals taken, only 80 females were included by mistake. MATCH GAME m Quite a gathering of golf fans was out on the links last Sunday to witness a spectacular match between teams comprised of A. L. Laurance and A. N. Payette and Billie Price and Scotty Brown. Messrs. Laurance and Payette em- erged the victors with scores of 77 and 81 respectively, as against 91 for Price and 81 for Brown, for the eighteen holes. two weeks ago to have it The match was marked by generally after.

I do not intend making any comparisons, or to write anything derogatory about either re- sort, there is such a great difference between them, and plenty of admirers of both. Miami Beach, during my visits there, I was informed that about eight years ago this was a sand-spit. A tract of 100 acres, mainly water, was bought by a syndicate headed by Carl. Fisher, who has been and is today the force in this enterprise. Possibly ten acres was all the land, balance under water. They drove piles, planked them, and then pumped sand back of them to make land; planted innumerable trees and shrubs, laid out streets and other improvements. Being about three miles away--by water--from Miami proper, they built a causeway connect- ing therewith. Today they have nu- merous residences, apartment houses, estates, and at least six hotels, each having from 100 to 1000 rooms; an aquarium, the best in the country, and the bathing beaches are numer- ous. One not knowing would not believe it possible that all this could have been accomplished in such a few years. The season lasts about four months. You are amazed when you compare the investment with the short season, While dollars have paid for the work, the foresight and energy has been and is the main force in the Miami Beach --as it is in Catalina. As I have written, I make no com- parisons. We all admire enterprise, and especially results. When it comes to preferences, I have spent two sea- sons at Miami Beach, about fifteen at Catalina, and hope to be on the Island for as many more. THE SQUIRE. WANTED, RUBBER NEWSPAPER Our baseball "dope" from Brother [rving Vaughn of Chicago was left out of this issue to give space to the legal advertising from the City of Avalon, as was another article on "Light Tackle Fishing." Editing a newspaper when we have too much "copy" always re- minds us of the story of" the old lady who wasn't used to entertaining "com- pany." She asked everybody to "din- ner," after placing the food very care- fully on the table. A short time later she walked into the dining room and said: "My, my. You all finished? I'm glad I just guessed it !" Sometimes we wish the newspaper was printed on rubber, so that we could expand and contract it. Yes, it's either a "feast or a famine." At Chamonix, France, January 29, in the Olympic games, the English hockey team defeated the French 15 to 2, and the Canadians ran away with the Swiss team, 22 to 0. The work of putting in a retaining wall is now being carried out on the lot purchased by P. West on Maiden Lane. The work on F. H. Reed's new home ot~-Crescent avenue is going strong, and it will undoubtedly be quite a show place when completed. Charles A. Fellows of Los Angeles is about to start building his new home on Crescent avenue. He recently pur- chased a very desirable lot from Her- bert Earlscliff. A couple of interesting legal an- nouncements are published on page eleven of this issue--one relating to the improvement of a portion of Ma- rilla avenue, and the other to the pro- posed enlargement of the municipal pleasure pier. For a couple of days last week the pupils of the Catalina high school had a vacation from their studies. Quite a number of the students were vaccin- ated by Dr. Baker. All of them re- port that they are feeling in the very best of health. We received a clipping last week from Brother Joe Welsh of Pasadena, giving us the rainfall at Glasgow, Scotland. Thanks, Brother Joe. We'd be glad to donate a five spot to see a "Scotch Mist" at Catalina. Such a rain would be worth millions to Cali- fornia. As next Sunday is being generally observed as Lincoln Sunday, on ac- count of being the Sunday preceeding his birthday, "Abraham Lincoln's Character and Faith" will be the morning sermon topic of Rev. LaRue C. Watson at the Communtiy Church (Congregational). The evening sermon subject will be "America's Challenge," based on a very effective pageant which the speaker recently witnessed in a Los Angeles church.
