WILL NEW It is expected that the Catalina Cubs will be organized for the season dur- ing the coming week. Work on the steamer pier was de- layed last week, but is again in pro- gress. As soon as the work there is completed, the pile driver will be mov- ed to the site of the Catalina Yacht Club, and be put to work upon the new pier there. The pile driving crew has completed its work of enlarging the pleasure pier, and very soon the railings, boatman's booths, etc., will be put in place. The greater floor space will be appreciated by the summer crowds which patron- ize the fishing launches and the glass- bottom boats. A force of workmen has been en- gaged during the past week grubbing out the cactus and other growths on the terraces above the Greek Amphi- theatre. Low growing plants will re- place the wild growth. Work on the little park at the entrance to the Am- phitheatre is still in progress. The flowers about Boos Brothers cafeteria are looking fine these days. A choice lot of pansies have just been set out. The lighting system has also been ,put in first-class condition and the broken colored globes replaced. The hillside at the rear has also been cut down some, thereby giving more level surface in the yard. Captain W. O. Clover of the cruiser "Loafer" recently returned from Mexi- can waters with a broadbill swordfish (Xiphias gladius)measuring more than fifteen feet in length. A photograph of the fish and the launch was pub- lished Sunday, April 6, in the Illustrat- ed News, Los Angeles. The "fish is said to be the largest ever taken on the Pacific coast. It is not stated, how- ever, that the fish was fought by an angler. "Speed" orange drink holds the uni- que position of being the first com- mercial enterprise conducted in Los Angeles which had its origin on Cata- lina Island. Catalina "Speed" has been sold for several years in the largest down-town fountains of Los Angeles. The Avalon "Speed" factory has been rebuilt throughout in preparation for a big season, and the product was placed on the Avalon market the first of April.
