Diflln Did it ever,occur to you that our champions of the National League, THE CHICAGO CUBS, will arrive on Friday. W e call them our Cubs, because we feelthey are a partof us; they comehere from all parts of this U. S. to prepare them- selves physically and mentally for the task ahead of them, and it is our H. D. mPPIN sunshine, our clam- act that makes it possible for them to be champions, plus their ability, and the brains of their manager, Joe McCarthy. The Catalina Bills Drum Corps will meet thelfl with a parade, and all fans of Catalina are requested to be in line in front of the Hotel 'Atwater at 11:30 a.m. to join the Drum Corps in a grand greeting. Let's make the boys feel they are coming home, and that we are for them, Bat, Ball and Glove, for a World's Championship this time. They have the ability, and cannot be out-locked, twice in succes- sion. AS TOLD TO ME Taken from the Los Angeles Her- aid--And here comes a letter fi'om "Squirrel" D'Arcy, Catalina's noted golfer, swimmer and man about town Says the "Squirrel": "Lest you forget-- "My trip around the world with Zane Grey as private professional starts soon. We'll be gone 2~ or 3 years, and I'm looking forward to a great time, even if we may have to lay out our own golf cours- down on one of those South Sea islands. But. boys, wait'll we get hunting- those man-eating tigers of India. "Maybe I'll like golf better!" Ta-ta, "Squirrel," old boy. And don't forget our tip-- "Keep your head UP--not down-- wh'en you start firing at those Man Eaters !" And to show that Squirrel is some golfer he goes right out and burns up our links with 8 birdies, 10 threes out of 18 holes and has one duco. Playing with the Squirrel were such players of nots as amateur champion of Cata- lina, Vincent Petrich, that boy they call the little Giant of Golf William Price, Mr. Mickey McCully, our su- burban player, and who is not only a golf player, but is a good trap shoot- er. He goes f, rom one trap to the other without the least bit of trouble. So much for the boys; here's how the Squirrel did it: Par Out--4 3 4 4 4 3 5 3 4 34. Par In --44344443333.

GOLFILITIS By Joe A strange malady ..... ~: has visited our i~,air ~! shores, that is caus- "~$ .... ing our most distin- guished citizens to ~ gnash their teeth in agony. I t seems that the place hit hardest is to be JoE vmNm. found at William Price's barbershop where the little giant has "What a Man" Glendeye to contend with. Scotty Jack Hannon can tell you that "What a Man" is on his game right now, but Scotty is known as a fellow who would give away anything, even advice. China- man Scott, the boy with perfect form is the envy of all the. town. If you wish to see a demonstration of how a big shot does his stuff ask "Squir- rel" D'Arce to do a little imitatioN of Bert upon the green. Stocky Diffin has all the b6ys worried because his game has improved to such an extent that his handicap is dropping faster than a punctured balloon. Colonel Patrick of the Avalon Navy can ])ass out more nicknames in a week than Webster could write in a month. If his putts would drop in the cup like the loving terms he calls the ball, then Old Man Par would have to be changed regularly. "Push them Up" Petrich has a strangle hold on the Bert Scott tournament and the boys in the rear are hoping he looses his midiron and putter. In fact there is a conspiracy on foot to feed him rat poison or what have you, that will do the business. Pitch and Putt Berning has an eye on winning, and Frederick is a dark horse that will bear watching. If no ladies are pres- ent he can be depended upon to make a good showing. Fred loves the la- dies like Dempsey loves Kearns. Now folks, I could say something about Gossiping Eyes, but he is hav- ing to let me in on the bet when the clean-up comes. Four eyes Paper ~s the stakeholder, and if he doesn't ab- scond it looks like a trip to l~urope, or at least Watts. THE RAINBOW'S ENil By Mrs. J. N. Forbes Many praises are sung an Many eulogies written All by the magic of Catal The beauties of her azure Of her rolling hillsides high, Thb blue waters of the spreading nigh. Sunshine like softest yell( Warm sandy beaches ling wavelets roll, All these things and more quite often told, Bu~ there was yet another. Came, our hearts and awe to fill, And to enhance anew the sky and hill. Great dark clouds were high ; Dark was the ocean like sky, But rifting clouds let a beam by. And 1o! near the close oft day A gorgeous rainbow, bright Rested both ends in the alon bay. No need searching with main, Tramping through endIesS of rain Seeking fabulous pots of gldt tain, a, For we found, all on a Just where the ends of the stay-- Deep in the sun-drenched Avalon bay. The effort to engineer light of ,existing intellil a task as any hitherto saint or martyr.--James inson. ;, " 9 FOOD PRODUCTS WITH A PERSONALITY 101 Sumner Ave. Only I " 7 Mark's Coffee Shop J Crescent Avenue near Steamer Pier[ J CATALINA'S NEW AND | l MODERN CAPE l k, % I FOR WINTER RATES SEE [ / I MeS.
