PAGE TEN THE CHARMS OF CATALINA (Continued from Page 6, Column 3) We come to Renton Pass, a rolling high level place which is the proposed site of Western Air Express for their fleet of passenger planes. As far as the eye can see, goat trails terrace the hifls--making them look liko "dimpled hills." Alongside the road for several miles we pass little fruit orchards that have been planted in rich ploughed soil. Many of the trees are in blos- som. These trees yield the most wonderful fruit, product of the rich, virgin soil in which they have been planted. And, curiously, just above from the craggy heights of 'the hills above the orchards we hear the bleat- ing of the wild goats as they scamper away at the tooting of our horns. Catalina at this time of year is a riot of wild flowers. As we wind around canyons the fragrance of wild lilac greets us. There are whole trees of the fragrant flowers, both of the blue and white specie; shooting stars, or cyclamen, blue lupine, yellow vio- lets and fields of golden poppies. And intermingied in these the scarlet toyon berry is still on the trees, everywhere adding to the colorfulness of the scene. Catalina holly, or toyon, is luxurious in its growth. The berry is much larger than that which grows on the mainIand and it is on the trees from October until late spring.
