The Catalina Island Company thinks so favorably of the proposed service that it will have advertisements of the Hotel St. Catherine, Hotel Atwater, Island Villa and Villa Park therein, as welt as several illustrations. NEW BUSINESS-- FROM HOLLYWOOD It is refreshing to realize that there are active minds constantly on the alert to increase the scope and power of the service given by the Santa Cat- alina Island Company to visitors who eagerly seek the shores of this won- derful "isle of dreams," and in this in- stance we have to thank one. of our enterprising Hollywood representa- tives, Mr. S. W. Gillett, manager of the Guaranty Building and Loan As- sociation Information Bureau, at 6364 Hollywood Boulevard, for this unique idea by which tourists, and residents as well, can conveniently and quickly locate the various business establish- ments which go so far to popularize this world-renowned resort. We glad- ly take off our hats to the gentleman and the progressive institution with which he is connected, and trust he will have another "brain-movement" soon which will be still better yet. A few light showers during the past week have helped to keep the hillsides green. torium of the Congregational Church. It is only rarely that speakers of this type can be brought before a small audience in a community like ours, and it is hoped that this. experiment will be so successful that further oc- casions may be arranged as opportuni- ty arises. A charge of twenty-five cents will be risked from the general public to help to meet the expenses incurred by Dr. Martin in coming to Ava/on. WESTLAKE MASONS VISIT CATALINA The officers and members of West- "lake Lodge, No. 392, F. & A. M., of Los Angeles, were the guests of the local lodge on Saturday evening, upon which occasion they conferred the Third Degree of. Masonry upon one of their candidates. About eighty-five members of the fraternity, including a number of visitors from lodges dis- persed throughout the United States, were present to witness the ceremony, after which a buffet banquet was served in the assembly room of the Foresters Inn. George E. Daul, Edgar M. Harrison and W. H. Mulcahy com- posed the committee on entertainment. The walls about the little park at the entrance to the Greek Amphithea- tre will ere long be covered with trail- ing vines of vinca (a variety of rc, yr- tie), with its dainty blue blossoms peeping out through the foliage. A lighter load of lumber arrived Saturday, for use on the Hart, Porter and other structures. room house.
