The official op- ening of this club is planned for about iVlay 15 and already there is talk of Staging a big racing regatta during the bummer, a which promises to regatta eeonte an annual classic. "We will be dispatching ships out of here next summer if we can get the lane through the ocean entrance op- ened by that time," Mr. Fleming de- clared. One of the reasons advanced by Mr. Fleming regarding the disposition of the Company to begin operations out of Long Beach just as soon as possible is that round-trip voyages to Catalina from that port will reduce the sailing time of the Company's ships 90 min- utes. This feature is said to present a big appeal to the commuting public. Four of the Company's steamers, in- cluding the "Catalina" now in course of construction, will be pressed into the Catalina tt'ade by July, Mr. Fleming averred. The other vessels alternating in this service are the "Avalon," "Ca- brillo" and "Hermosa." Two of the ships will be retained in the Wilming- ton-Avalon service.

Obedience to the right rather than mere submission to orders is held out as the ideal. While some parents obey their children and so give them the false idea that they are always going to get whatever they want, other chil- dren are taught submission so well that they are not allowed even to think for themselves, and so grow up These details usually are missed by i other than those who year in and year out, are in close touch with the inner workings of a major league ball club. Hours of conference in which Killefer and his chief assistants, 'Head Coach Dugey and Scout Bobby Wallace are the principal figures take up many of 'the evenings. In other words the train- ing of the Cubs isn't all accomplished on the beautiful Island greens. Changing of batting form, speeding of base-running, and a hundred other little things, all essential to success in the majors, are carefully watched by the men who make up the Board of Strategy.
