KILL 'EM WITH KINDNESS "BUILDING A SKY-SCRAPER" The above was the title of a special fihn shown at the Strand Theatre on Monday evening, in addition to the usual run. It illustrated the various processes in connection with the erec- tion of the great Wrigley building in Chicago, and was witnessed by a large audience. Several views took the observer all the way from the concrete foundation pillars, resting on bedrock over a hundred feet below the surface of the ground, clear to the top of the clock tower, hundreds of feet skyward. The methods of steel construction were shown, followed by pictures illus- trating the manner in which the beau- tiful tile exterior and the brick walls were laid and interlockedinto the steel frame of the building. 1 LATE LITTLE NEWS NOTES The sound of the pile-driver is heard in the land.

Wrigley of Chicago have been played on the Catalina links dur- ing the past month. The l'wo ladies enjoy the pastime very much, and both play an excellent and skillful game.

There are two methods to win a battle."Kifl 'era with kindness." and fight. Frankly, folks, we, as a newspaper, take the position that there are enough thinking people in Avalon to "kill off the kickers with kindness." Let's try that method first! It is only nine years since our last fight, and all our wounds are healed. Moral--A wound does not heal as quickly the second time.
