IN ANNUAL TOURNAMENT By Alma Overholt With close to 150 entries the'Fifth Annual Catalina Women's Invitational Golf Tournament got underway Sun- day, with the preliminary mixed Scotch foursomes. A brilliant field was represented. The feature four- some included none other than the state champion, Neff White and Mil- dred Green, runner-up in the state championship and twice winner of the Catalina tournament ; Mrs. Mark Steele and Fred Berning; Mrs. Gregg- Lifur, Southern California title holder, Elizabeth Abbott, Los Angeles City champion; Don Nittinger, who the day previous had defeated Nell White in the Inter-collegiate championship by a pipe, his mother, Mrs. Mary Nittin- ger; Miss Jane Dougfas, Mrs. /5`. J. Wittig; Mrs. Kenneth Carter and Jack French; Mrs. P. J. Paxton, Vince Petrich. , First low gross was won by Mrs. Green and Nell White, who turned in a brilliant score of 63. Betty Crandall and Bill Price won low net with a 56, Price having an 8 handicap and Mrs. Crandall a 30. Don Nittinger and his mother turned in a low net of 61, Don a scratch' player and his mother a handicap of 7. Class B and C players teed off Monday morning, and the low handi- cap players, or class A teed off Tues- day morning. Mrs. G. M. Midgely, president of the Southern California Golf Association, under whose aus- pices the tournament was held, presid- ed at the first. The full quartette of golf writers from the metropolitan dailies, Paul Lowry of The Times, Maxwell Stiles of The Examiner, Darsie L. Darsie of The Herald-Express, and Lee Basta- jian of The Illustrated Daily News, arrived on the noon steamer Sunday with tennis racquets and minus their respective wives. The feminine wield- ers of the mashie are still wondering just the why of the tennis racquets-- possibly for defense purposes only. Practically every Country Club in Southern California was represented among the entries in the tournament. The Rancho Country Club had its crack team here headed by Mrs. C. C. Cary. Brentwood had a delegation of eleven present, as had Potero. Lakeside, Wilshire, Rio Hondo, Vic- toria Comatry Club of Riverside, La Jolla, San Diego, Santa Barbara, San- ta Ana, San Gabriel, San Bernardino, La Mesa, all were represented. The tournament proved such a suc- cess that the golferettes are asking: "Why can't we have a tournament twice a year instead of but once?" In Monday's play of class B and C Mrs. Jack D. Brunton of Brcntwood broke 90 and won low gross, with Mrs. May Caldwell of Rancho a stroke be- hind to finish second low gross. Mrs. Lloyd Carver of California won first low net in this event, and Mrs. F. C. Stevens of Lakeside finished second. In Class C, Mrs. Betty Crandall of Avalon flashed in first and gave the gentlemen of the press a story--a real movie thriller. In the nfixed four- somes, the gentlemen of the press got a bit mixed, or someone did; at any rate the home town girl was over- looked and the honors of winning low net were credited in the press copy to Don Nittinger and his mother, Mrs. Mary Nittinger, which made a very good human interest story. And Betty Crandall, being chief operator and also telegraph dispatcher of news copy, had to send the stories, which gave the honors to another, over the wire. Her sportsmanship in sticking to her code of ethics and sending on the sto- ries won for her the admiration of the gentlemen of the press. Their gallant amends in the following day's stories should get Betty a movie contract, and nothing less--and was Betty's face red when she had to put over the wire the copy recounting her own prowess--at an)[ rate, Betty Crandall will not re- mare without honor in her own town, and Avalon has added a feminine star to her crown--Betty Crandall takes her place with Vince Petrich in getting (Continued on page 10, column 4) CONGREGATIONAL MINISTERS' RETREAT HELD AT AVALON (Continued from Page 1, Column 2) thought. There was a program, fea- turing our Conference Moderator, as- sisted by the spitting image of Roy Campbell; also, Ide, Hunter, Moore, and Oaten, our seminary president and the minister of our largest church, as well as l_)r. George A. Coe, all aid- ed mightily. Space forbids mention of our many able presiders and devotion- ers. It was a good program. Your scribe, who was the Yes-Man on the Contmittee, is overcome with mode, sty at this point, and can say nothing fur- ther. May we append, in closing, the fol- lowing resolutions, unanimously adopt- ed by the ministers? It is not to be taken in the feeble spirit of the rest of this article: Resolutions The Congregational Ministers of Southern California have had the rare privilege of coming to Catalina for 21 years, and have enjoyed the generous hospitality of the people of Avalon-- Therefore, be it resolved, by this Twenty-first Assembly of the Minis- ters : 1.--That we express our hearty thanks to the Church, and to its pas- tor, for every courtesy extended to us, and for every effort on the part of the Women's Organization, the Choir~ aud the n~embership to enrich our Convo- cation. 2.--That we thank the hosts and hostesses who have opened their ho- tels, apartments, and homes with such generous hospitality. &--That we l:hank the Catalina Golf Club for extending privileges to our men who belong to the order of the Little White Marble. 4.--That we thank the local citizens who have added to our happiness by the generous use of their automobiles; and the "Catalina Islander" for the .publicity given concerning our nteet- rags. 5.--That we express our sense of in- debtedness to the Program Committee for the stinmlating program arranged for us, and likewise to the men who have helped to carry through the pro- gram itself. 6.--Last, but not least, that we thar~k the Catalina Island Steams'hip Com- pany and the Los Angeles Pacific Electric Company for special rates ex- tended to our fellowship, thus making possible our Retreat.
