The two six-cylinder engines for the electric light plant were placed on their foundations last week, and the workmen are now constructing the building to house them.

A distinct advance step was taken by the Community Church (Congrega- tional) last Wednesday evening, when it received, discussed, and adopted the report of the committee which had been previously appointed to recom- mend the new by-laws for the church. The constitution and by-laws which have been adopted are in line with the best practice in modern church organ- ization, and will make the local church more efficient in its service for the community. In our mail Monday we received an excellent article by former Congress- man C. G. Conn, which we expect to print next week, under the caption of "The Light Tackle Problem." For .many years Mr. Corm was an enthus- iastic light tackle angler in Catalina waters. "LAUGH THAT OFF" We received a letter Saturday and on it was a rough drawing of a man in a new coupe. Underneath the drawing were the following words: "So I took the $50,000 and bought an oilcan. (With apologies to Joe Kauf- man.) Can you find room for this in the 'Refined and Crude' column ?" Ed's Note--Sorry we could not re- produce your drawing. You are some "artist." The coupe only cost ,$830! What did you do with the "change" from the $50,000 ? As one of the base- ball writers says: "Laugh that off!" Catalina will give you the rest of your life. Come to Catalina. Its use over coral reefs is simply out of the question, for a grouper will go at once into a hole in the coral and you can then break the line and pre- pare to do it all over again. I have never caught a broadbill, and until I had done this, or lost several, I would not consider myself qualified to pass an opinion on fair tackle for his pursuit. Did you ever read the chapter on the comparative merits of light and heavy tackle that I wrote for Van Campen Heilner's book, "Adventures in Angling ?" Although this was penned three years ago, I would not change a word of it today, except to increase the weight of the rod one ounce If you ever run short of a story, it might be well to print it, as your audi- ence is interested in this question. Miami and the Gulf Stream are call- ing strong and clear that the sallfirth are in the stream, and my old guides are waiting.
