Waldman Catalina, Isle of western sea, All admit the perfect euphony That's revealed when humans breathe thy name, And afar hath spread thy beauty's fame, Leading tourists to thy pebbled shore. In the days to come--when lines galore No advertisement of thee withoht, All will treat the-~ as of purest goht. Riverside, California. JUST A LETTER From James U. Marsh Dear Windle : The Islander came here today. I ran through its pages, and found an array Of bright, snappy items; the news of the clay, And the doings of peollle along Crescent Way. [ see that the Cubs are now "doing their egg." Will Wrigley will purchase, buihl, borrow or beg Enough steamboats and harbors, though it takes a leg, And keeps you all busy as a top on its peg. The Yacht Club will open the fifteenth of May, Friend Wahlman is building well up from the bay; "/'he cute little church is re-papered, you say, And they're planting flowers out Catherine Way. The poems are good, and the jokes are not tough; There's always a kick in "psychology stuff;" Of live advertising there's surely enough To keep the wolf outside from getting rough. 1 enjoyed it all, and then took a whim To drop you a line, as my chances are slim Of seeing you soon--I have no Uncle Binl-- And signing myself Most sincerely yours, Jim. Los Angeles, Calif., March 14th, 1924. THE RIGHT SIDE San Pedro, Calif., March 15, 1924. Editor Catalina Islander: One day I was talking to our oht friend Jack Merkeley, and he made the statement that you often heard the expression "that there are two sides to every question ;" but, from ex- perience, he had often found that there were three--as follows: Your side, my side, and the right side. 1 was struck by the truth in his statement, which bCcame the inspiration of the follow- ing: THE OTHER SIDE By J. M. R. That each question is two-sided ls a fact, and all agree That we should not be too hasty, But should try both sides to see. All are prone to do nmch talking, And we often argue long On some small and trival matter When both sides are in the wrong. Should we clear our blinded vision When we try both sides to see, 1 am sure we'd oft discover That instead of two there's three. Yon will find the first side your side; That the next belongs to me, And the third side is the right side-- Or the way it ought to be. SERVICE OF SONG A special service of songs will in- itiate the new song books at the Com- munity (Congregational) Church at 7 p. m., next Sunday. There will be an unusual amount of singing by the con- gregation and several special numbers, all taken from the new book. The pastor's brief talk will discuss nmsic in connection with religion. The pub- lic is invited to enjoy this service. Write to the Catalina Light Tackle Club, P. O. Box 14, Avalon, California, for information about sea angling.'
