CUBS DEFEAT GIANTS IN EXHIBITION GAMES With a ninth-inning flash the Chi- cago Cubs last Sunday captured the honors from tile New York Giants at Wrigley Field; score 3-2. The game between the Cubs and the Giants Sat- urday ended with a 10-2 victory for the Cubs About 3000 falis witnessed the games. No admission was charged. The Giants left for the mainland on the 4 p.m. steamer. Apparently after giving the Giants tile winning run in the eighth inning of the Sunday game, the Cubs staged a quick rally and clouted Glen Spen- cer for two runs. .The Giants used four pitchers. Zack Taylor and Mark K~enig chalked up the ninth inning runs for the Cubs. The triumph gave the National League champions two victories over the Giants. Other exhibition games will be played between them in Los Angeles at Wrigley Field, commencing next Friday. A 'number of the Avalon fans h'~ve 1,lanned to go tothe mainland to watch the games. -- :o;-- "ANGELS~ DUE HERE SATURDAY, MARCH 14 To complete their spring training, the Los Angeles Baseball Club will ar- rive here Tuesday, March 14. The players, coaches and newspaper men-- a party of about fifty--will be guests at the Hotel St. Catherine. The Au- gels are to remain in Avalon for two weeks, with a week-end visit to the mainland for an exhibition game. -- : 0 : "--------" The largest assemblage of warships ever seen off San Pedro Harbor, will pass in review before the U. S. S. Pennsylvania, off Point Fermin, on Thursday, March 9th, at 2:00 Not only will this be an historical event very well worth seeing, but it is an o.pportunity for the local yachts- men In general to do honor to onr Naval representatives. Announcement was made " Monday that the Pomona Glee Club, under the leadership of Dr. Ralph H. Lyman, is scheduled to give. a concert at the Av- alon Casino on Saturday, April 1. The Pomona Glee Club won the singing contest at St. Louis last year. Addi- tional announcements will be made in these columns. Mrs. Harry S. Allen and daughter Barbara; Mrs. Golda Carey of Long Beach; Miss Dorothy Dennison, re- turning from a visit with her mother at Pasadena; Miss K. Torrey, Avalon City Nurse and Will Daly, were among the arrivals on Monday's boat. INTERESTING NOTES ABOUT THE CUBS AND THE VISITORS By Harry Nelly Dan Cahill, A-1 Cub fan, has devel- oped a mahogany tan. He has a sys- tent. Mornings he sits on tile fish pier. Then he views practice from a sunny seat. In the afternoon he takes a sunbath atop the clubhonse. Nobody in tile world can get a tan any quicker. Oscar Reichow, business mauager, and Boots Weber, secretary of tile Angels, were over for tile week-end. So was Manager Jack Lelivelt, search- ing for sume pitchers and a first base- nlan. Tile Cubs have three first basemen in Manager Grimm, Harry Taylor, a lefthander, and Harvey Hendrick. It is doubtful if they carry all three. Taylor is a great fielder, but Hendrick is a better hitter. Charles Dunkley, midwest sports ed- itor of tile Associated Press, went home Thursday, flying to the main- land. He was the little, fat fellow with the funny nmstache, not to be confused with the writer, who has a goatee. Mr. Dunkley never had been here before, and was astonished. He regretted that the duties of his posi- tion called him home. The Cubs' party numbered 43 over tile week-end. Families of several of the players came over from t'other side of tile channel. Traveling Secre- tary Bob Lewis was busier than all get-out. Here's a queer one: Zack Taylor and Burleigh Grimes have been team mate.s on three National league clubs, the Giants, Brooklyn and Cubs. Harvey Hendrick and Babe Herman were to- gether in Brooklyn, Cincinnati and Chicago. That doesn't happen very often. Ed Burns (Col. Heft) of the Chi- cago Tribune and Johnny Keys of the Daily News, engaged in golfing strife for side bets of denominations. There seems to be a difference of opinion, for they still are arguing about it. C. Dunkley, A. P., was supposed to be arbitrator, but he hiked home during the heat of tile discussion. T-Bone Otto, Chicago Herald-Exam- iner, appeared Oil Crescent avenue this week with bicvcle pants but no bicycle. He complains about the food at tile St. Catherine. Says the new chef serves steaks so big he has to send part back, which ruins the day for him. )as. C-allagher, married tile day tile Cubs left Chicago, is bearing up man- fully. Uuable to find a golfiug com- panion he went up tile hill last Friday and beat himself. This is his first ex- cursion to Catalina . He brought along the missus. Mrs. Stanley Hack gave the week- end visitors to the St. Catherin2 a tennis treat. She is western wem- en's champion. "On (he tennis courts she outbats Mr. Hack. Notable gathering of authors last week-end to see the Giants and Cubs play. From New York: John Drebin- ger, Times; George E. Phair, Ameri- can; Ken Smith, Mirror; C harle~; Par- ker, World-Telegram; Richards Vid- mer, Herald-Tribune; Garry Schuma- eher, Journal; Mike Houston, Daily News. From the White Sox camp: Edgar Munzel, Chicago Herald-Exam- iner; Mark Vaughan, Tribune; Ed Prell, American; John O'Hara, Times. All were duly impressed. Miss Della and Junior Root spent the week-end with their parents, Pitcher and Mrs. Charles. Two de- lightful youngsters. Mark Kelly, the critical critic of the Los Angeles Examiner, inspected the Cubs and remarked: "There is quite a ball team." Roy Ray of the Times in Los Angeles also was over for the exhibition contests. Der Kaptink, Charlie Grimm is rid of lumbago which infested hi.~ back last week. Blames it on sore,.' teeth which were repaired by Doc Wifite, the local tuoth carpenter. Dr. Andrew Lotshaw, the eminent trainer, says this is tile softest training" trip in his long experience. Th,: ath- letes reported in good condition and suffered no injuries of moment. Burleigh Grimes missed a con.ILl,: of day's work through indisposition, and Pat Malone picked up a severe odd. Malone wintered in Florida and his affliction must have been a kickback from that locality. George Washington Grant, former owner of the Boston Braves, and Mrs. Grant were guests of President and Mrs. William L. Veeck. Grant was a pioneer cinema exhibitor in London and amassed a competence. He is re- tired now and lives a life of easy ele- gance in Los Angeles, devoted princi- pally to golfing and attetadance at ball games. Some Cubs pitchers quaked in their boots when they saw Jack Lelivelt, manager of the Angeles. He was over in search of talent, being ably flanked by Business Manager Oscar Reichow and Secretary Boots Weber. He also craves a first baseman. Lew Fonseca, :nanager of the White Sox, was astounded when he viewed the Wrigley Field Sunday. He didn't know there was that kind of a train- ing camp anywhere. Vice-President Harry Grabiner and Secretary Joe Barry also inspected the Island. J. Louis Comiskey, owner and presi- dent of the White Sox, did not visit the Island Sunday, However, Mrs. Comiskey and daughter, Miss Dorothy, came over on a yacht with Urban Fa- ber, veteran pitclacr. Mr. Comiskey is back in Chicago on account of his health. -- :o:-- GIRL SCOUTS The Girl Scouts Troop Committee and the Court of Honor met at the home of Miss Bernstein on Monday evening. The Troop Committee mem- bersare Mrs. Baker, Mrs. Bussey, Mrs.Buffington and Mrs. Carpenter. The Court of Honor is composed of Captain Bernstein, Lieutenants Sievi and' Perluss; Patrol Leaders, Alice Lee Haywood, Helen Greig, and Vir- ginia Lee Grahanl. Miss Bernstein, who attended the conference of Scout leaders at the Pa- cific Palisades last week-end, reported on the meeting and the aims of Scout- lug. A lively "discussion followed, and a greater appreciation and under- standing of the high ideals that the movement encourages and develops in the growing girl made each member deternfined to do all in her power to foster this movement in Avalon. The patrol leaders expressed the de- sire of the Scouts to have Mrs. D. M. Renton as honorary chairman of our Scouts, and the C@tain was asked to welcome her to the Troop. Refresh- ments and a social meeting followed. Alice Lee Heywood, Scribe. -- : O: ~----" CLEMENTE ISLAND AIR FIELD NOW READY Completion of a new Navy air field on San Clemente Island was an- nounced recently when charts of rhe new landing port were received by the Navy Hydrographic Office at San Pedro. The new landing field lies 30,000 feet from the north end of the island, between the two ranch houses, the only structures on the barren isle. Two 1600-foot runways have been completed, and the entire field is marked with crushed shell and stone. The field will be used not only by naval flyers, but is also available for civilian pilots in distress. -- :o'---- Our Adlet Colunm h~lps. '['ry it.
