Increasing in velocity it whipped the ocean waters into huge whitecaps and threw tons of water with great force into the crescent shaped bay. The custom on such occasions is for Harbor Master Mulcahy to bring forth a cannon of ancient vintage--load it carefully before the awe-stricken gaze of the Catalina natives--perform ex- pert calisthenics and with a violent jerk of the cannon cord there is a terrific BOOM ! !! ! If you are an on-looker an interest- ing sight will promptly greet your eyes. From every side street and doorway issue the village fishermen; their wives; neighbors and children. A northeaster has arrived and at Cata- lina that means a little excitement. Boats must be watched carefully to make certain that the moorings are not breaking loose. Everyone lends a helping hand to insure safety for the various craft. Such was the case last Saturday-- the usual crowd had gathered; small skiffs were being hauled into a safety zone on the beach beyond the reach of the rushing and damaging waters. Suddenly, a large commotion occur- red in the vicinity of the Tuna Club in the central neighborhood of the bay. A small sailboat was maneuvering madly around the bevy of buoys, en- deavoring to make quick and safe an- chorage. Six or seven young men were battling with the craft to keep it upright in the strong wind. A quick bustle of figures on board the yacht; a huge rushing of large waves, and over on its side careened the boat, throwing its cargo of young men into the ocean. All of the boys swam the short distance to shore safely and the boat was soon rescued and moored safely by many able Catalina volun- teers. Following one of the drenched young men down to Bert Scott's laundry and tat'lor shop, off the main street, close by the Hotel Atwater, we entered the shop in time to listen, with several other townspeople, to the following conversation between the dripping young fellows and the merchant prince --Scott. "I want to have this suit of clothes dried and pressed up," requested the young mariner. "Just capsized out there on the drink." Scott quickly seized a tag and with pencil poised questioned, with that "Ira' so busy I can't think" look: "Uhhhhh! Say, how do you spell that name S-e-y-s ?" "Seys ?" retorted the young mariner. "What do you mean Seys? .... Didn't you say your name was CAP. SEYS ?" queried Scott. "Heck, no....." disgust- edly replied the youthful mariner. "Don't bring up such DISTASTEFUL and WET subjects in this DRY town[ The name is Ed Smith. Our boat cap- sized__CAP SIZ ED__compre ?" Many loud guffaws--Scott so red on his half bald head that you could warm your hands on it---business of slam- ming the shop door in our faces--- adios. The meeting of the Mary Williazns Club on Thursday afternoon of last week was one of unusual interest. Mrs. D. M. Renton presided, on account of the absence of the president, Mrs. Greeley, who was attending the dis- trict convention at Glendale. The ladies listened to three very in- teresting articles, taken from various magazines, which were read by three of the new members of the club, Mrs. Stone, Mrs. Watson and Mrs. Dunkle. A very charming lady, who has re- cently returned from four years spent in Korea, told of the life and customs of the people there, in a very interest- ing and attractive manner. The next meeting of the club, on April 24th, will be a red-letter day, as Mrs. Toll, district president, is to be a guest of the club, with luncheon at the Hotel St. Catherine. All club mem- bers who are able to attend this lun- cheon are asked to report to Mrs. Goulding, club secretary, as early as convenient. TROOP NO 1, AVALON BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA Last Saturday the Scouts of Troop No. 1 went to their clubhouse at Wil- low Cove in the launch "Ramona." The morning was spent in repairing and fixing up the clubhouse and grounds. The Scouts plan to use it a great deal during the next few months. '~he first big event will be the troop's birthday party, to be held sometime in May. The Scouts of Troop No. 1 are now registering for a new year's work, having completed one year of scout work. AVALON WOLF CUBS Last Saturday evening the Avalon Pack of Wolf Cubs enjoyed a hike along the beach. Games and stories were enjoyed. Mr. H. R. Chessman, scout executive of the Verdugo Hills Boy Scout Council, told the cubs a very interesting story about a panther. GITCHE GUMEE CAMP FIRE GIRLS WELCOME VISITORS The Gitche Gumee Camp Fire Girls held their regular weekly meeting last Friday evening, with Mrs. Wood pre- siding. All plans for the evening had been prepared beforehand by Mrs. Stone, our guardian, who had been obliged to go to the mainland. After roll call and the minutes were read, the girls turned to their handwork, which they had started the preceeding meeting. While they were thus busily engaged camp fire songs and yells were prac- ticed, in which every one participated. Camp Fire Girls from other group's, and others interested in our work, are always welcome. Meetings are held every Friday evening at 7:30 p. m. in the kindergarten room of the Congre- gational church. Vice-President Jaznes W. Jump, H. W. Adams, Ralph Bandini, A. C. Brode, H. J. Mallen, F.

CLAUDE WALTON LOCAL FORD REPRESENTATIVE "The Hubbard Auto Sales Company of Central avenue, Los Angeles has just completd its two new build- ings," said Mr. Harry Hubbard, who is an Avalon visitor and a guest of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Green of Sumner av- enue for a few days. "Our increased equipment provides us with the most complete shops on the Pacific Coast. We are now overhauling about 200 cars daily. Because of the demand of our many Avalon friends, we have ap- pointed Captain Claude Wakon our local representative. "To the Hubbard Auto Sales Com- pany belongs the distinction of plac- ing the first Ford cars on Catalina Is- land, and operating them between Av- alon and the Isthmus. In 1923 our sales force sold more than 2000 cars." During the month of January Mr. Hubbard was in a serious accident near Covina, but has almost recovered from its effects, excepting the healing of a severe wound on his left hand. "Bill" Guirasich, chef at the Grill Care, takes great pleasure in the op- eration of the steam table recently in- stalled by Carl W. Carson. It keeps various soups and other foods hot, without any danger of their scorching. A large cold storage box for vegetables is also a recent addition to the con- veniences at this up-to-date eating es- tablishment. Manager P.
