LOOKING THEM OVER Mr. Wrigley Hat Private Island and Personal Climate Neal O'Hara New York World This is the Island Bill Wrigley owns. Mr. Wrigley is discoverer of perpetual motion. He discovered he could throw 100,000,000 jaws into action by feeding 'era chewing gum. Before Anti-Saloon League found a substitute for saloon Mr. Wrigley invented a substitute for breath. He gave America spearmint and doublemint. And made a mint for himself. Duke of Chewing Gum now has big- gest incandescent billboard on Broad- way, handsomest building in Chicago and loveliest island in Pacific Ocean. That's all. He got more for originat- ing two inches of guilt than Balboa did for discovering 1,000 nfiles of Pacific Coast. Catalina isn't one of those islands that's as big as a poker chip and worth half as much. It's a real place to toss anchors overboard, with mountains, canyons, harbors, drives, villages, Post Office and other nick-mtcks of civiliza- tion. And Wrigley ownes the whole works, front the trained seals to the exit march. The village is a real layout, with everything from a horse trough to a high school. It's got hotels, garages, cafeterias, stores. You can buy any- thing on the island except Beeman's gum. Catalina has exceeded its quota of beauty. And Bill hasn't plastered a single roadway with billboards or spearmen. Away tip on the hillside, about 8,000,- 000 packages:of gum above sea level, Bill has erected a forty-rooul castle that he modestly calls his shack. Every winter, when Chicago sends out storm bulletins announcing 20 be- low zero for Great Lakes and points East, Wrigley hops in a covered wagon he bought from Pulhnan factory and rolls as far West as he can. Then he hops a private yacht in Los Angeles harbor and sails twenty miles into the Pacific to his private island and per- sonal clintate. When it's 8 p. m, and six below in Chicago, Bill is sipping mint juleps here. One of the famous adjuncts of Bill's private domain are the submarine gar- dens and glass bottom boats. The skiff that catches all the tourist trade has a plate glass hull. You can look through the bottom and see Flora Fauna and many other famous dames. Right off the shore of Bill's personal isle is this lovely garden under the sea level. It's one of those gardens you don't have to water because Neptune attends to that. As you gape at the handsome submarine layout, it looks like Belasco and Reinhardt had got to- gether and draped seaweed, seashells and water plants together for a third act ensemble to knock your eye out. You also spot large schools and col- leges of fish that look up through the plate glass and pity you because you are caged in and they are free. For sideshow features Bill has seals at one end of the island that play mat- inees and nights, fifty-two weeks a year, and never get on the payroll. And in the harbor, in front of his hut, lie's got pelicans that put on diving ex- hibitions to spear careless fish with their beaks. The Chicago Nationals, which Club Bill owns, are now at Catalina, their training. The island is an spot to try out these athletes. manager can pick the rookies want and then drown all the rest. It is certainly some layout rigged up for himself. They also to lay aside an island for the guy invented chewing gum slot Many customers of those intricate vices favor Blackwell's Island for guy.
