THE CATALINA laLANDER "Ternfinal Park" has been chosen as the name for the new park that is soon to be laid out near the Catalina Terminal at Wilmington. v.z CATALINA ,aLANOe~ The Chicago Cubs' training field is in beautiful shape to receive that live- ly aggregation, which is due to arrive next Sunday. Then the training will begin. r-t CATAL,NA leLANOZa It will pay you to look over the ad- vertisements in this issue--in fact, in every issue. Avalon business men more and more are learning the value of frequent changes in their advertis- ing. Look them over. You will find an advertisement of the "Atwater Grocery" on page three. It has heretofore been known as Hoover's Cash and Carry Grocery-- but patrons have so often confused it with the Hoover Market on Catalina avenue that it has been thought befter to change the name. THE CATALINA ,eLANOEa The first channel fog of the season swept over Catalina Sunday forenoon. So dense was it that it required skill- ful work on the part of Capt. Lee Mur- sstter of the steamship Catalina to lo- cate the Avalon pier. But with the aid of the fog siren and the whistles of the glass bottom boat moored at the pier he made a fine landing. T.Z CATA'mA ISLA.onn All Avalon will be interested in the two one-act plays which the senior class of the Avalon High School is preparing to present at the Strand Theatre on Friday evening. The price of admission will be 50 cents, and the fund derived will be used to help pub- lish the school annual, "The Torqua," this year. The cast of characters will be found on the school page--11. DEAD, OR ALIVE Declaring that Florida stole a march on the other states by doing away with inheritance taxes--thereby securing an influx of capital exceeding all expecta- tions-the Redwood City (California) Times-Gazette cites the case of a man who wished to move to California, but found that it would cost him $180,000 more to die here than in the state where he now resides. The editor goes on to say: "Florida has capitalized an opportu- nity open to every community, name- ly, by reducing the tax burden she has encouraged the investor to develop her resources. No more striking object lesson can be offered to national or local governments that tax oppression kills the sources of tax revenue, while tax moderation will build up taxable assets." But if it be good business to induce capitalists to come to California to die, how much better to bring in men to live. Doubtless a few more rich men, whose lives are nearly spent, would come to the state if California abolished her inheritance tax, but it would be a mere bagtaelle compared to the number who would come if the state adopted the Tax Relief Amend- ment, which exempts all personal property and $2000 worth of improve- ments to each taxpayer. That this measure would promote industry and increase property values may be seen from the experience of Pittsburgh, New York City, and other eastern cities that have untaxed per- sonal property, machinery, goods, and raw materials. Not only have they outstripped competitors, but the in- crease in realty values in New York City, from 1897 to 1924, has been from two billions to eleven billions of dol- lars. TPtw CATALINA ISLANDER The next few days present a couple of interesting events--the anniversary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln, pop- ularly called the "Savior of His Coun- try," on the 12th, and next Sunday, the 14th, the day when Cupid is sup- posed to be very busy piercing the human hearts with his dainty darts. If you have a "valentine party" we will be glad to have you tell us about it. THE CATALINA IILANOarn Almost every day construction equipment for use at the different mining projects located in the interior of the Island is landed at the Sugar Loaf dock. The last" large piece of machinery to arrive here was a cage for the mine at Black Jack. Tt4n CATALINA leLANOIrR There are 1,475,915 automobiles regis- tered in the State of California, as against 1,627,025 in New York. This gives California the largest per capita of any state in the Union. THE CATALINA laLANDER The new chimes that are to be lo- cated here immediately on Mr. Wrig- ley's return from Chicago, arriveo at Avalon last Thursday. THE CATALINA IBLANDrR Carrots should be served more often. They are an excellent source of min- eral matter, but the most notable fea- ture of the carrot is its plentiful sup- ply of vitamines. There are many de- licious ways of cooking and serving this vegetable. T.E C*TAL,NA IS-ANO~ Come to Catalina for the rest of your life. Good in whichever ,sense you choose to take it.

LIGHT TACKLE CLUB TO AVALON BOATMEN To the Boatmen of Avalon: The Executive Committee of the Light Tackle Club wishes to make known to the boatmen of Avalon, at the beginning of the second year of its existence, what it expects to accomp- lish and also what it expects in return from you. What it desires above all else is co- operation and harmony, to the end that you may profit financially, that the results obtained may cause the Committee to feel that their labors have not been in vain, and that the Light Tackle Club may again become a popular and progressive institution. We especially ask of you that you distribute our 1926 booklets among your patrons, give them what infor- mation you can and encourage them to obtain buttons and become mem- bers of the Light Tackle Club. Please familiarize yourself fully with the contents of the booklet, as it contains many features of interest to you. We are especially anxious to fea- ture light tackle competition by la- dies, and handsome trophies are, of- fered for Tuna and Albacore, with more in prospect. The money received from the sale of buttons creates a fund that is de- voted wholly toward the cost of ad- vertising, printing, buttons, etc., also prizes to both angler and boatman. We believe you know each of us well .enough to feel that we have your in- terests at heart always and that with- out your undivided support the Light Tackle Club would cease to exist. The number of new members taken into the Club is the only means we have of knowing whether our efforts are bringing results or not. Last year the Committee themselves furnished the funds to meet bills for printing, prizes, etc.; the money received from the sale of the buttons issued being a small item, and there were sgme but- ton fish taken for which no. buttons were obtained. We look to you, of course, to persuade your anglers to obtain these buttons. You will note that we hold your signature on weigher's certificate as evidence that such catch was made Jn acordance with the rules and on the tackle checked off, and we feel confidence in the responsibility so placed. Another point, namely: Securing the house address of those taking out weight certificates is of importance, as it enables us to quickly get in touch with the winners at the close of the season. The matter of the Certificate of Catch Cards issued by the Club on request of anglers taking a Tuna over 100 lbs., or a Broadbill or Marlin over 200 tbs., on regulation Heavy Tackle, in accordance with the rules, should not be lost sight of, as we believe that many entitled to them will be glad to take them away to show friends what they caught at Catalina. These, as you know, are free. It might here be stated that while membership and buttons are only awarded for Light Tackle Catches, that competition for prizes is only open to those taking out buttons, as we must protect our prizes. On our trophies open to Heavy Tackle, we engrave the winner's name, taking the largest fish subject to don- or's restrictions, if any, which is in llne with open competition. For the coming season we will have THE CATALINA HOW TO AVOID Editor The Catalina Recent county health that smallpox on the sumed the malignant type death rate is very high. dieted during the mild 1924.
