The New Bride is reason for so many things lately--puzzled expressions- raised eyebrows -- dubious onlookers -- dis- tracted directors -- excited players -- enthusiastic side-liners--- rehearsal after rehearsal encouraging and dis- couraging--as rehearsals go. The New Bride is the beginning-- the humble bow--the debut of the Catalina Community Players. The fine spirit that has been dis- played since this new organization came into being is excellent; extreme- ly encouraging. It promises fair wea- ther ahead! And now--the New Bride is to take form. Among those to appear in the cast, (and these are only a few from the ranks of the players), are: Jas. Arnold, Marjorie Bush, Billie Daly, Martha Daly, Leslie Grantier, Win.

Bon Voyage, Community Players f ALL CATALINA IS IN THE "SHOW" BUSINESS The regular monthly meeting of the Avalon Pusiness Men held in the club- house of the Catalina Country Club last week, was well attended. Presi- dent Ralph M. Heywood in his genial manner, kept the program well in hand and on schedule. After the dinner, the speakers were D. R. Arnold, Nick Garcia, Jacob Al- bert, P. V. Reyes, F. M. Paulson, O. C. Hoover, Paul A. Hines, Oscar Grif- fith and Otis Shepherd. "W;e are all in the show business at Catalina," said Mr. Shepherd. "Our season will open May 18th, and we want to make Catalina the best 'floor show' on the Pacific Coast." After a discussion on the various • business signs, it was suggested that the local business men discontinue the use of neon signs for advertising pur- poses. A~aother banquet is scheduled for the month of April. LOW DOWN ABOUT TOWN By Harry D. Diffin The writer of this column has re-. ceived several requests for informa- tion as to who was the winner of the several golf leagues during tl~ win- ter's playing. The reason the winners were not announced is because there were two ties, and the sponsor seemed to be having some trouble in getting these four players together in the play-off. All four players are sharp-shooters, and courageous, but one fears there is a little angling for mental attitude as well as high and dry weather. Nevertheless, with proper persua- sion, I believe we can get the boys together some time in the near future, and at that time this column will give a complete list of winners, prizes of- fered and names of merchants who so kindly donated them. ---~'--- : O : -- FOOD SALE COMING The ladies of the Aid Society wish their friends to know that they will have another food sale on Saturday of next week--March 23rd, in the At- water Arcade.

One of the whale-hunting vessels was in the channel, and just about the time the steamer drew near a large whale was harpooned. The steamer was slowed up for a few moments that all :night have a chance to witness the unex- pected event. That would prove an unusual attraction if the whalers and the whales could reach an agreement to have such a bit of acting every day.
