PAGE TWO THE CATALINA ISLA TUNA CLUB ANNUAL MEET MAH JONGG CLUB W (Continued from Page 1, Column 2) annual record holders present in this class. In turn, Jimmy "presented" the button to each one, permitted him to hold it for an instant, and promptly demanded it back. We noticed that Jimmy dropped the button in his own pocket, saying that it was again in competition for the 1924 tournament. (And we wonder if this is a challenge). When Andy Martin had received his fifth prize, some one suggested that he go for the express wagon. He was awarded seven prizes. On the third award he said: "I appreciate this from the bottom of my heart." The sixth prize caused some one to ask: "Where's your heart, now? .... I have the hoof and mouth disease, and can't talk," retorted Andy. "But I will say that Jim Jump is the best Santa Claus that I have ever seen." Joking and good fellowship continu- ed throughout the awarding of the prizes. Everyone "got what was com- ing to him," and from our observation they all appeared to be happy. We were glad to notice that Friend Jump had the grace to ask some one else to present him with his own bas- ket or two of prizes and medals, and The home of Mrs. Clarence Bun- nelle was the scene of a very pretty club party Tuesday afternoon. Those present were Mesdames Fred H. Reed, Charles Patrick, Clara Lauranee, Charles J. Dash, M. B. Dunkle, D. M. Renton, J. N. Obrecht, George W. Greene, W. V. Heiss and Clark D. Billheimer and guests, Misses Lina Ma- son, Louise Sutliff, Ruth Dorn, Ruth Fowler, Dorothy Ney and Avric Blee- ker. Miss Lina Mason made high score. The living room was prettily decorated in the mah jongg colors, red and green. Very dainty refreshments were served. The club will meet at the home of Mrs. George W. Greene, April 29th. GITCHE GUMME CAMP FIRE GIRLS PLANNING The weekly meting of the Gitche Gumee Camp Fire Girls was held last Friday evening, and several members who have been sojourning OUt of town were present. Much practicing of yells songs and stunts were enjoyed, and many plans formulated for the future. The girls were very happy over a gift of three new books to add to their library shelf from Mrs. Ott.

Nineteen prizes is going some for two "old men." It was the unanimous opinion that the clubhouse was by far the most appropriate place to hold the annual dinner for the members. As the movies say, the "atnmsphere was per- feet." An interesting feature of the even- ing was the showing of the several thousand feet of fihn taken by Pho- tographer Olsen on board the cruiser "Goodwill," while that vessel made its recent trip with Mr. and Mrs. Keith Spalding from New York "to San Pedro via the Panama Canal. Among many of the interesting things the film showed a battle with a broadbill swordfish, in which the big fish es- caped. As much of the fihn was :en- tered on the angling and scenic beau- ties of the trip, showing Mr. and Mrs. Spalding and Mr. and Mrs. Nelson A. Howard in "action," the pictures were very much appreciated. And it was ahnost midnight before the festivities ended.
