Colonial cos- tumes were a prominent feature• The young people participated in an interesting program of dances, after which they sat down to a beautifully decorated table and partook of dainty repast. The table was in the form of the letter U. At the head was a realistic campfire, composed of red electric lights and carefully arranged wood, surmounted by a tripod, suspended from which was a kettle. On the table itself, On the snow- white tablecloth, was spread a crepe paper covered with minature hearts in red. The table was lighted by small electric globes, the light being sub- dued beneath masses of s~fiilax. BOXING JIM, BASEBALL BILL Mr. Charles W. Wrigley and Jim Gill of Chicago left for the mainland Monday. We had a "good story" al- ready written about Jim Gill and Bill Killefer, but because Mr. Gill refused to accept Hard-working Bill's terms, the deal was called "off" and we have "killed the story." Mr. Gill is treas- urer for the William Wrigley, Jr., Co. at Chicago. In reality, he hands Mr. Killefer his monthly pay check. It was while on his visit here that Jim had a "tryout" with the Cubs. As a ball player Jim looks real classy in a Cub's uniform. Hard-working Bill had Jim work the "reducing stunt." He clothed him in a rubber shirt and had him run miles and miles. Jim never grumbled. He's not that kind of a man. What we'd like to see is a box- ing match between Jim and Bill. Would Jim knock Bill for a home run ? WILL TELL US LATER Avalon, March 21, 1924. "SUGARLOAFERS" DANCE TO CHICAGO CUBS' ORCHESTRA There was a goodly crowd present at Sugar Loaf Casino last Wednesday evening to say farewell to the Chicago Cubs, and also to listen in to the play- ing of the new orchestra, which ap- peared for the first time with the in- struments purchased for them by William Wrigley, Jr. When the baseball boys marched up to the bandstand, relieving Franklin's orchestra for the time being, they were hailed with shouts of welcome from their assembled friends. The boys of the team who were not members of the orchestra appeared to thoroughly enjoy the musical productions of their associates. Manager Killefer, wielding a weighty baseball bat for a baton, quickly start- ed his orchestra off on a waltz---to the strains of which there soon was a merry party tripping around on the well waxed floor. Then the orchestra boys broke out into song--and received There were individual nut boxes at Editor Catalina Islander: another salvo of applause. • each plate, and also tiny candles, in I have received many requests ask- They played four numbers, and then Io~iss Neva Lynn of Columbus, Ohio, the flames of which marshmallows ing me to answer or express my views resigned the platform in favor of the • has been the Avalon guest of were toasted, on the twenty-four thread line• After regular orchestra.
