Jim Kenny pitched a brand of ball for the seven innings he worked that showed that he is going to be a hard man to beat. Jim's curve ball was working fine, and his fast ball sure was going by the opposing batters. Keho, who relieved Kenny in the seventh, showed the fans that he had some stuff on the ball himself. Also, in the eighth inning, his three-base hit with the bases full brought in three runs and cinched the game up tight. Hollis Leake caught his usual fine game and gathered two hits. Gould, Pfahler, O'Shea and Cnnningham hit well for the Cubs. Doran, at third base, played a nice fielding game. A good-sized crowd saw the game, and our boys sure showed them that Catalina has a ball team. With the backing from the company, several of the merchants and the fans at the game, the Cubs feel that their season will be a banner one.

CATALINA CUBS STANDING Won Lost Pct. Catalina Cubs .................. 1 0 1.000 PAGE THREE MRS. ELMIRA GRAY AN OLD-TIME AVALON RESIDENT PASSES AWAY Mrs. Ehnira Gray, aged 82, beloved wife of the late Captain Nathaniel Gray, (lied at her home, 3071~ Lan- franco street, Los Angeles, Wednesday, April 9th. She had been in ill health for several months. The funeral was held from the chapel of Ivy H. Over- holtzer, Los Angeles, and the inter- ment was at Evergreen Cemetry, with General Lawton Circle, No. 29, Ladies of G. A. R., in charge of the services. Among the Avalonites who acted as pall bearers were Captain O. I. Daniel- son, Captain H. W. Allen, Mr. W. H. Gill and Mr. W. Sands. Born in Illinois, Mrs. Gray was mar- ried only a few months before her husband joined the forces in the civil war. After the war, the couple left Illinois for California, where Mr. Gray became interested in the boat-building business at Los Angeles and Wilming- ton. In 1890 he brought his wife and family to Avalon, where they resided for many years. Captain Nathaniel Gray died at Los Angeles in October, 1919. For many years Captain and Mrs. Nathaniel Gray were familiar charac- ters in the pioneer clays of the city. First they camped, like all other Is- landers, in tents on the beach. Cap- tain Gray was among the first resi- dents to "build a house," on the prop- erty he purchased from Mr. Shatto. The family home still stands on Whit- tley avenue, and during the past sum- mer Mrs. Gray, although feeble, was an Island visitorl Mrs. Gray leaves two brothers and two sisters, one son, Captain Tad Gray, one grand-daughter, Mrs. Violet Tufts. Many beautiful flowers were sent from Avalon and Los Angeles friends of the family. CARD OF THANKS For the many beautiful floral offer- ings and expressions of sympathy in the loss of our clear mother and grand- mother, we desire to thank our many kind friends.
