Miss Heywood, commonly known as "Butch", was completely surprised and bowled over when greeted with a few well meant but severe "pats". How- ever, she soon recovered when the guests sang "Happy Birthday". Of course the evening would not have been complete without a contest or two, so the girls drew songs and valiantly strove to win first place while getting under the skin of the audience. Oddly enough, the songs drawn seemed to fit the participants exactly : Mary O'Leary, "Chapel In The Moonlight." Alice Walsh, "When Did You Leave Heaven ?" Alice Lee Heywood, "It's AI Sin TO Tell A Lie". Bernice Hampton, "With Plenty of Money and You,". Hilda Salmon, "It's Been So Long". The table decorations, arranged by Mrs. Brooks and Susan, were carried out in a channing arrangement of yellow and green, with gay handker- chiefs as favors. The refreshments were lovely, al- though the girls felt quite put out as the ice cream plates were passed down the line and arrived empty. The puz- zle was solved when it was noticed that Thelma Cameron had it all piled on her plate. Alice Walsh also did some sleight of hand by hiding the olives in her lap until she and Hilda Salmon had fin- ished them off. But all's fair in war and a party, and the evening closed with a hilarious ending when the girls went home in imitation of a "chain gang" tied to- gether with crepe paper streamers. Congratulations to Mrs. and Miss Brooks for a lovely_ party, and to Alice Lee Heywood on her birthday. The guest list : Thehna Cameron, Hilda Sahnon, Alice Walsh, Bernice Hampton, Alice Lee Heywood, Harriet Smith, Katy Kruger, Mary O'Leary, Maria Perkins. Mr. and Mrs. Frank ]3urnham re- turned to their Whittley avenue home on Sunday, after a brief visit to Pas- adena. Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Sullivan and child were among the arrivals Sunday. Mr. Sullivan returned to Los Angeles in the afternoon, but Mrs. Sullivan is spending the week with Fire Chief Sullivan and his wife. Mickey Ahern (alias "Gossiping Eyes") arrived in Avalon Saturday accompanied by his wife and children. Mickey returned to Los Angeles on Monday, but his spouse and the kid- dies are enjoying the pleasures of life on Santa Catalina Island this week. On Tuesday, the 13th, a prominent man of business and representative of the State of Guanajuato National Sen- ate of Mexico, Mr. David Ayala, vis- ited the Island with his family. Both Mr. Ayala and his folks were very much impressed with the beauties of the Isle, and the attention which they received. This they told to Maestro Julian Espinosa, who is of the same State in Mexico. Captain G. Allen Hancock and par- ty, on the cru,iser Valero III, arrived in Los Angeles Harbor on Thursday, after a six-weeks exploration trip in the Gulf of California. Numerous specimen birds, animals, snakes and other reptiles, together with rare fish, were secured. The collection will go to I~yola University, Hollywood Aquarium, University of Southern Cal- ifornia, Scripps Institute at La Jolla, the San Diego Zoo, and various scien- tific institutions. .PAGE SEVEN THE ISLANDER ADLETS A careful reading of these Adlets Will reveal bargains that otherwise you might miss.

Mrs. Frank O'Brien of Sunshine Terrace entertained in a delightflfl manner on Friday of last week with a birthday luncheon and bridge party in honor of Mrs. George C. Farnsworth. The living room was decorated with a profusion of flowers. The luncheon table was also tastefully arranged with the birthday cake and the dessert es- pecially attractive. Before the bridge games started Mrs. Farnsworth was presented with a lovely set of ivory Catalina pottery candlesticks and a big ivory flower bowl to match. These were gifts to her from the la- dies present. The hostess gave each guest as she left, a pretty bouquet of sweet peas. Those invited to this birthday celebration were Mesdames C. Laurin, Chas.
