The members of this enterprising new club extend a personal and hearty invitation to all young women, whether single or married, to join their group. The "Tiny Tots' Bazaar", to be giv- en the latter part of May, is proving to be a source of great interest to all members, and the pile of "little things" is growing larger every week. The meetings are a combination gab- fest and sewing circle, with refresh- ments served by the members in rota- tion. Remember the date, Tuesday, April 18th.

O From Beverly Hills April 2nd, from Beverly Hills came a flock of "maidens fair" to the "Isle of Enchantment", for a happy Easter vacation. They were Jane Fowler, Robbin Steele, Rnth Reasoner, Betty Lee Hale, Clovis Brainard, Virginia Towle and Bonnie Sites. They were gaily and competently escorted and donfieiled by one Bob Wurfl, who spent last summer with the Bud Ma- sons. Catalina is now a "first love" of Bob's, though SEVEN girls so fair presents SOME competition. Pressure of business (with a breaking heart) sent Bob back on the same April 2ml. The girls were graciously chaperoned by the grandmother of Miss Jane Fowler -- Mrs. Hubbard. Returning Saturday. April 8th, the verdict was-- a grand time and grand weather. .... c).__ NOTICE TO BUSINESS MEN There will be a meeting of the Cat- alina Island Business Men's Associa- tion tonight, Thursday, April !3, at 7:30, at the Country Club.

GOLF MARATHON--OF'209 HOi.ES PLAYED BY JACK WINDLE A record of eleven and a half rounds of golf played between dawn and (lark- ness o,;er the sporty eighteen-hole Santa Catalina Island golf course, a total of 209 holes, was established last week by Jack Windle, a local lad, in an attempt to establish a new world golf marathon record. The judges who checked Windle's feat estimate he covered 30 miles in his gallop over the course. Windle used only three clubs--a driver, a mashie and a put- ter--and had no caddie, as has been the rule in practically all past attempts at a world marathon record. Windle had each time to stool) and pick up his ball and clubs, toss the mashie and putter onfo the next green and then start--all of which cost time. Windle used only eight balls during his mara- thon, which began at 5:00 a.m. when Roy Phillips, pro at the Catalina Vis- itors Country Club, started him off. Incidentally, Windle lost eight poumts in weight during his feat and wore out two pair of socks. For sustenance he drank orange juice, ate apples, choco- late bars and graham crackers. Windle's lowest and highest scores were 87 (made on his first round) and 79 (made on his tenth round). Roy Phillips reports that Windle made some of the grandest "explosion" shots during his marathon that he has ever witnessed, and played in phenomenal luck over the difficult island course. Observers placed at various stations of the course during the entire xnara- thon to check Windle's progress, were Roy Phillips (Island pro); Hobbs Ste- vens, U.S.C. assistant football coach; and Cius Shaver, both all-American football stars; Harry Stevens, Huncey and Fred Gihtner, Roy Pyle, Mike Reycs, Harry Schulley of Chicago. Windle played his last hole at 7:00 p.m. with Harry Schullcy holding a flashlight on the green to make it possible for him to putt the ball into cup. While working on one of the rock quarry barges last Sunday, John Nightingale became entangled in one of the tow ropes and his leg was broken. The accident happened while the barges were in the vicinity of Long Point and the injured man was immediately brought to Avalon on the tug Dispatch, and received surgical at- tention at the Catalina Hospital.
