PAGE TWO LOVED AVALON By Mrs. W. J. Littleton Across the sea I hear a call. The south winds gently whisper, Come ! It is a voice from Avalon-- Enchanted Isle--my girlhood home. In memory, I still can see My home I loved so well. My mind reverts to days gone by, And over me it casts a spell. Dear, peaceful Isle on sunlit sea! Your silent call I hear, And, quietly, I steal away To rest and happiness once more. Your many charms are dear to me, And oft, in silent bliss, Looking back into the past, I recall those days of happiness. I sit And listen to the waves As they gently lap the shore; The music of their melody Thrills me, as in days of yore. In memory yet I live! Every hour is still to me The happiest ones of all the years-- And in my heart will ever be. How happy in those youthful days, When, roaming o'er the hills In quest of ferns and flowers wild, With joy my heart was thrilled. Happily the days went by-- Fishing, boating, hunting too, Filled the days with joy sublime-- Nature seemed to beckon you! Y-our verdant hills, and valleys too, Are ever dear to me! Your placid bay, of changing hue, Fills my heart with ecstasy! When it's time to say farewell, How loath I am to leave! I heave a sigh of sad regrets, And sail for mainland in the eve. The zyphers gently fan my brow-- Seem to kiss me tenderly, As if to bid me stay awhile And live again old memories. When the boat is leaving, Looking back with longing eyes, To myself I softly whisper: Avalon, fairest spot beneath the skies! Farewell! Dear lovely Isle-- Lovely Isle of the western sea-- Ere long I'll hear you call again, And I will answer thee! Venice, California.

"KEEP ON KEEPING ON" When a traveling companion re- marked to William Wrigley that he could "save money" by cutting down his advertising, Mr. Wrigley re- sponded: "We're making a fine trip on this train. How much progress do you think we should make if they took off the locomotive?" AVALON BOY SCOUTS VISIT NEW CLUBHOUSE Friday and Saturday; February 29th and March 1, the Scouts of Troop 1, Avalon, enjoyed a trip to Willow Cove, where they have a clubhouse. Leav- ing Friday about 4 p. m., in John Minney's boat, the "Elmo II," they ar- rived in time to spend a delightful eve- ning around the big fireplace. On Saturday morning they cleaned up around the clubhouse and played games. Several Scouts passed tests, while others took an exploration hike. They returned to Avalon about noon on Saturday, where they were met by Mr. Geo. Roeding of Fresno, a natur- alist and horticulturist of considerable note, who conducted them on a nature study hike, which the boys enjoyed very much, and thereby gained quite a bit of knowledge of plant life on Cat- alina Island. On Tuesday evening next, March 18, the Scouts will hold a Court of Honor meeting, and give a Scout play, at the Atwater Hotel. The public are cordi- ally invited to attend this gathering. TALKED ON CIVICS One afternoon last week, at their urgent request, Rev. LaRue C. Wat- son addressed a group of women on the subject of their civic responsibil- ities. For the benefit of those who were not experienced in public mat- ters, he explained why every citizen should be interested in matters of gov- ernment, and discussed some of the fundamental principles relating to gov- ermnent and politics. As to individual candidates in the present local campaign, Mr. Watson said: "There are two very good rea- sons why I should not speak regarding any particular candidates. One is, that I believe that any one publicly discuss- ing candidates should know what he is talking about, and I have been in the community too short a time to speak competently on this subject. The oth- er reason is that the lines are not so drawn in this campaign that I, as pas- tor of a church, would be justified in involving the church in the contest. I urge you to study the field carefully, and to help nominate and elect those officers who will give the city of Ava- lon the cleanest and most efficient government." QUIZ FISH DEALERS ON COMBINE CHARGE More than a score of wholesale fish dealers operating at the Los Angeles harbor were under Investigating last Thursday by the Fish and Game Com- mission to ascertain the truth of char- ges filed by various fishermen to the effect that the wholesalers had entered into an agreement among themselves whereby prices were fixed and only a limited amount of the daily catches were accepted. According to the fishermen the al- leged combine is paying from 3 to 13 cents a pound for fish which is selling in the retail market at from 25 to 40 cents a pound. Deputy Fish and Game Commission- er C, S. Bander stated that the results of his investigation would be placed in the hands of the department of justice.

Column 4) Turgeon, Cotter, Elliot, Grigsby as well as the other youngsters have flashed smartly at times in practice sessions, but even these have been inconsistent and at times ragged. Yet no machine ever shaped up under artificial condi- tions, which in reality, are what prac- tices are. Two weeks of campaigning against the Coast League clubs will knock the rough spots off the team play and give Killefer a definite line on "~at he has in the way of prospects. When the club finishes up its final week of coast play at Oakland the Bruin leader will just about know what to expect from the majority of his youngsters. Even then there may be some of those enigmatical athletes in the personnel. Picking youngsters for the acid test of the major campaign requires keen foresight. But Killefer has that!
