PAGE TEN PITCHER JACOBS HOLDS OUT FOR CAR FARE FOR 5 (Continued from Page 3, Column I) Jacobs, had a record that isn't impres- sive. He lost more than he won and gave out 115 passes, so it may b~ that the Cubs bought him on form and not on what he has already accomplished. Phil Collins comes from the Rock- ford Three I club where he notched 17 wins and was nicked eight times. He looked good in a game pitched for the Cubs at the end of the season. Bush, a big raw-boned lad who admits he isn't a pitcher, but can throw pretty well, hails from the Cotton States League. Possibly the best of the en- tire lot is Rip Wheeler, who came up from Wichita Falls. He toiled in sev- eral games for the Cubs late last sea- son and Manager Killefer considers him a real prospect.

THE SUBMARINE GARDENS THE MARINE GARDENS, as de- scribed by the eloquent editor of the Paris/an journal, "Le Figaro,'"" M. Hater: "Floating over green and blue water in the glass-bottom boats, one sees the goings and comings of aquatic life. The boatman names to you the marine plants and the fish, and tells you the different depths. One is as- tounded; one questions; one exclaims! Here are shell-encrusted rocks; fish, red, green and gold, zigzagging leis- urely among the waving foliage, the seaweeds gracefully balancing with the tide, on the clear bottom the sea throws beautiful reflections. Here are real trees with long branches waving 'as on land by a tempest; great fish of all shapes appear as in an artificial aquarium; the sea stars (star fish shine in the shadows of the r'ocks; then more luxuriant foliage, branches bearing clusters of fruit resembling the olive. One would think these were fertile fields suddenly submerged by a tempest. Leaning over the transpar- encies in the bottom of the boats, the people go into ecstacies." A party of eastern tourists com- . mented as follows: "Next to the Gral;d CalJv'on, the Catalina marine gardens are the most inieresting sight we have seen." The marine gardens are shown by day and b~ night. In the spring of 1921 J. H. Patrick, president of the Santa Cata- ling Island Company completed experi- ments on board the glass bottom boat Empress, which enabled him to show the marine gardens at night. Sixteen, one thousand candle power searchlights were encased in pontoons attached to the side of the ves~cl, and these lights penetrate into the water for a depth of one hun- dred feet with a radius Of two hundred feet. Night time being the time when many varieties of fish feed, the visitors on these trips see many marine wonders on the bed of the ocean as well as the hundreds of different varieties ot vege- tation. Among the marine specimens which may be viewed throu~'h the clear cry~ taline waters on the lava-like sea-floor Kr.LI' AND "~ICSS, ES Iodine Kelp Chenille Moss Sea Grape l,~elp Irish Moss Giam Bulb Kelp Feather Bma Mo~s Ribbon Kelp Ruby Moss Rainbow ]Le!p Feather ~do~s Red Alga Sponge Moss Sea Lichen Heather Moss Bridal Veil Moss Coral Moss FISH AND "SHELLFISH Garibaldi, or Octopus Golden }'erch Sea Cucumber Blue l'crch Sea Hare Blue Eyed Perch Sea P,~rcupine Silver Perch l elly fi sh Wall Eyed Perch Sunfish Rock Eass "Viger Shark Opal ~yed Bass Sheepshead Striped Bass Moray Eel Ratfish Abalon; Kelpfish Crawfish Candlefish Sand Crab Wb;t'~t! ,(::t q r fi s!', Sculpin Kovbole Limpet Ghost fish Seii At~emone THE CATALINA SPORT NOTES Perle Casey is reported signed one of the umpires in the Coast League.
