BASEBALL OFFICIAL REPORTED AT OUTS Rumor has it that Jim Gill, treasurer for the William Wrigley, Jr., Company of Chicago, and Bill Killefer are no longer close friends. Last Thursday the genial treasurer appeared in one of the Cubs' uniforms. He wanted a try-out. He looked very neat in the Cubs' dress. "Try-out!" Killefer is reported to have exclaimed. "Get into a rubber shirt !" Jim followed instructions. He was a double ringer for Sydney Smith's "Uncle Walt." That fixed him! For two hours Bill made the great athlete do stunts. Without a word of complaint Jim slid all over the dia- mond. He ran so fast that he couldn't stop at third base.He slid home-- past the plate, and ahnost into the grandstand. Perspire! Weight seemed to drop off his huge frame but he plodded on and on with the tryout. Then came the climax to the tireless efforts ! "Whatja mean, you're a ball player ?" Killefer is reported to have exclaimed. "You're a treasurer!" Some think that it was perspiration that continued to trickle down Jim's flushed cheeks. Mr. Charles Wrigley avers that it was a flow of tears! At the clubhouse it was found that Treasurer Gill had lost nearly five pounds in weight. He was happy. So happy that his friends took him to dinner that evening, and again Charley Wrigley avers that his genial friend gained nine pounds to his 230 pounds of muscle. Thus was the friendship between Jim Gill and Bill Killefer estranged. Mr. J. B. Macdonald, who is also one of the Island visitors, is emphatic in his statement that Treasurer Gill did not receive a fair and just tryout, and that he should have another op- portunity before the Cubs leave the. Island. LION CLUB PROPOSED FOR CATALINA ISLAND Sacramento, Calif., March 14, 1924. Editor Catalina Islander: You will recall my conversation with you regarding the possibility of organ- izing a Lions Club at Catalina, and I ann requesting the International office to forward to you full information re- garding the club and its objects. I again call your attention to the probability that sooner or later an or- ganizer for one of the various lunche- on clubs will visit Catalina, and a club will be organized, wtth considerable additional expense over and above that contemplated by the arrangement I suggested to you, to the effect that you immediately get your group to- gether of twenty-five or more, and pay the International fees only, there- by saving $12.50 upon each member that would ordinarily go to the organi- zer, and be of no benefit to your club. You will see that there would be a substantial saving in money. If I can be of any service to you in assisting in this matter, please com- mand me. Yours very truly, RAY L. RILEY. The indoor pole vault record was broken by Dean Brownell at Chicago on Saturday, when he cleared the bar at 13 feet and 5-8 of an inch. THE HOOVER MARKET BRANCHES OUT Announcement was made last week that the Hoover Market had leased that portion of the Atwater building extending from Sumner to Metropole avenues containing the bakery and cold storage departments of the for- mer Atwater Care, and that the "bakery department" of the Hoover Market would be the best equipped establishment of its kind on the Island. In addition to' leasing all of the equip- ment, the Hoover Market has also leased the vacant store on Stunner av- enue. Mr. O. C. Hoover said: "We expect to have our plant in operation by June 1st. We have placed Mr. Henry Fate in charge of the bakery and will open the store on Sumner avenue in addi- tion to our business on Catalina av- enue. The equipment that we have leased from the Santa Catalina Island Company is modern, and the refriger- ating system is undoubtedly one of the best on thePacific Coast. It was in- stalled by Mr.Wrigley some two years ago, but it has not been in use since the company discontinued the cafeteria business. "I ann very nmch pleased with the terms of my lease and--I expect to continue my advertising in the Island- er," Mr. Hoover added, with one of his genial snfiles.
