Lovely summer weather in Febru- ary. $ 8t q if you wish to enjoy a musical treat visit the Casino "lhheatre on Sunday afternoon and list.on to the organ re- cital. Prof. Clark knows his notes. lit e , ql When you speak of the beautiful location of Avalon, do not call it Ave,- loll Canyon. It is deserving of a bet- ter appellation. Why not say "Ava- h,n Valley ?" *tO,** The petunias which blossomed so long in the beautiful garden alongside the board walk between Avalon and the Casino finally about died ottt and were pulled up. However, new plants have taken their plac% and soon fresh blossoms will again be seen. The selection of Percy Mackey to fill a vacancy on the Board of Trus- tees of the City of Avalon has given general satisftxction tothe business men of the city. $$0t$ When crossing the channol on the steamers the musical numbers given by the orchestras are pleasing to lov- ers of music, even though they do not danco. At the present rate of road build- ing all parts of Catalina Island may soon be reached by automobile. Mr. Wrigley is a strong believer in good roads. .4,** The wonderful "Mission Play," pre- senting a historical sketch of the mis- sions and their founder, Father Juni- peru Serra, has now been given over 3000 times--which is a world's record. Have you seen it ? It has real merit --else it would have died years ago. lit O lie lit If you want to vOte at the Avalon City election in April, it will be neces- sary for you to register by March 14tb--if we remember correctly. So do uot lint it off and so lose your vote Mr. Windle, Mr. Peterson or Mr. Sub livar~ are authorized registrars. --:O:~ Scott Golf Tournament The final lists in this tournament are reported as follows: V.

AN "IDEAL PLANT" (Continued from Page 1, Column 3) from 150 to about 1,000 horsepower per engine,giving a total of 3,860 horsepower. This arrangement gives the utmost degree of fl.~xibility, which is highly important as the loads vary( tremen- dously by night and day, by" seasonal demands and the needs of pumping, mining operations and illumination. Each engine is stopped or started as th~ demand for electricity varies.. The output of each independent unit is taken to the switchboard and there parallelted with the other's output. There are two main trunk lines, one 3~/2 miles to the big quarry rock crusher and conveyorplant, and the other requirements at Pebbly Beach. The other trunk lineis 8 miles in length to Middle Ranch. This line carries power to the pumping plants which lift the water supply of Avalon over the 800 foot divide between the dam and the city. It also carries the power used at the Black Jack silver mines and concentrator, and operates the ore conveyors between the mine and the concentrator plant. The plant has given 100% service for the nine years since its installa- tion. It has never failed to give ade- quate and instant power supply. As auxiliary to the plant and its operations, modern and scientific en- gine room equipment is in service. About three years ago a complete recording pyrometer system was in- stalled, and the engineer in charge can at any moment determine the working efficiency, of any cylinder of any engine. Card indicators are used., engines and outputs are logged. Oils are purified and cleansed both by con- tinuous and batch systems. The plant is under the supervision and managern~nt of a highly skilled nmn, Superintendent R. A. Kilgore, who has been in charge of the instal- lation and operation since the com- pany took it over from the city. Records and grafts show that eteo- tricity is produced at this plant at a cost as low as many of the largest plants on the mainland. The peak output in 1922 was 4,000 K.W. At the present the daily out- put is 18,000 K. W. with a peak of 22,- tg)0 K. W. An electrical engin-er remarked, as he finished an inspection of the plant, "This is a model plant. No, model is not the word. A model is a small thing. This is an ideal plant." Superintendent Ki.lgore not only has suporvision of the electric system, but also has charge of the gas plant and a laundry. The gas plant was doubled in capac- ity when taken over by the Island Company, so that there would be ade- quate and continuous service. Gas is being produced at a cost lower than in many inland cities, and the output has reached a point of almost 150,000 cubic feet in a month, during the peak of the season. The laundry is equipped with the most modern equipment attainable, and is highly efficient. Another interesting feature of these hives of industry is that the welfare of employees is considered. All oper- atives of the plants are provided with comfortable homes, located in the beautiful little canyons surrounding these centers of industry. The entire system is an exemplifi- cation of what can be done where cap- ital and industry come together under ideal conditions. --~--- : :O :-------- Miss Angle L Fox, formerly teach- er in the Avalon High School, came over Monday for a short visit. Miss Clara Baker, niece of Arthur Sutemeier, is planning to spend sev- eral weeks in Avalon. The yacht "Petrol" brought the new owners over Saturday . They are Mr. and Mrs. Allen. They expect to have a wonderful time the coming summer on this fine boat. George Washington "Father of His Country" Born February 22, 1732 First President of the United States "I am resolved that no misrepre- sentations, falsehoods or calumny shall make -no swervefrom what I conceive to be the strict line of duty." --:O:~ COMMUNITY CONG'L CHURCH Sunday, February 23rd All Patriots' Day Morning at 10:30, Dr. Ratctiffe will deliver a sermon on the personality and career of Georg,~ Washington, and hopes to make this subject both interesting and instructive for all ages present. Evening worship at 7:00. Subject : "Abraham Lincoln--Some Character- istics of the Great Emancipator." There will be special and appropri- ate music at both services. The pub- lic of Avalon, strangers and visitors, are cordially invited to these services. Let all pay homage to the "M,ighty Dead." Dr. Ratcliffe says: "Go to church. Get the habit. It's worth while." --for-- CATALINA ISLAND YACHT CLUB ELECTS OFFICERS The annual meeting and dinner of the Catalina Island Yacht Club was held at the Jonathan Club, Los Ange- les, on February llth.

W. Jump, E. W. Mnrphy, Carl F. John- son, Chas. R. Ramsey and W. A. Van Burnt. The newly elected board of directors then elected Jas. W. Jump president; E.W. Murphy first vice- president; Carl F.

The Board of Directors and the Flag Officers are planning one of the best season's programs the club has ever pulled off . They are to be joined in many of the cruises and outings by the members of the Los Angeles Yacht Club and the California Yacht Club, all of which will tend to make the yachting festivities the coming summer the best the Southland has seen and enjoyed. ---:O ~-- The Cotton Blossom Singers, wl~o hav~ been heard several times in Ava- lon, will sing at the Community Con- gregational Church Thursday evening, February 21st.
