THE CATALINA PAGE TEN ,. "GOSSIIPING EYES" (Continued from page 1, column 3) while the women natives get the breaks while the "Cubs" and "Angels" baseball players are here, the local boys got their innings when these fair Amazons took the men-folks., even I with my premature grey locks, (ahem) was handed a batch of clubs and NEW GOILF BALLS and kidnap- ped into a SIXS.OME late in the aft- ernoon, which included Jake Hannon and Mrs. Buttress, Tom Phillips and Mrs. Bushnell and Mrs. Gray and I. Hannon brags now about winning our event with 89, Phillips with 92 and with Hannon keeping score, my part- ner and I finished right with them-- modesty forbids mention of the score. Hannon had the time of 'his life try- ing to instruct his partner, who has played in many tournaments, and he just a village cut-up, that barber! Phillips and I were gentlemen, and since the ladies didn't hire any caddies for us, we were kind and let them find all the lost balls and carry the bags. Hannon--he is bragging and brag- ging-sinking two long putts, about 14 ft. affairs on the 14th and 15th--I am glad he is not writing.this or you would be even less interested. Tom and I--we contented ourselves with out-driving him continually, and sitting patiently on the greensward awaiting our lady friends, who were valiantly toting our bags. Jake Hannon is indeed Scotch--he used the lady's ball all the time, and once when he put out a nice new one, and I innocently handed him one old egg f haft--by mistake--from the cup and kept his good one--he THOUGHT I meant it, and marked his ball differ- ently the rest of the day. Well... we all finished in a blaze of glory., it was dark, and Benny Ogden held a lantern over the 18th hole so that Hannonberg could putt another good one in to tie my 4. Such a guy---that Hannon. "Phooey to him" says Tom Phillips and I. Johnnie Windle and Bill Greenbaum were resplendent in all their glory, also, as they teed off nicely with top- ped balls, and their fair young dam- sels. Those sheiks ! Nothing but GOLF. Even Daddy Short Legs Oliver Greenbaum feeling chesty, challenged the Old Man From the Mountains (Marilla Ave.) Larry Paper to a sociable game of golf on the miniature course... "loser pays, eh brother Larry?" and he winked confidently at such sterling listeners as Billy Price, Vincent Petrieh and James Macintosh Glendye, the boy Detective . Old Pape just beat Oliver by 15 strokes and Oliver tried to pay the caretaker with perfecto cigars (?) but that worthy said "nay, nay... I've been trimming weeds all week, and they aren't going to trim me." So, folks . . . Golf today. Next Sun- day our battle royal resumes in the Catalina Athletic Association indoor- outdoor baseball league. Come up and watch the Legion keep on top. 3:00 P.M. : O : ----~-- MARY WILLIAMS CLUB The regular meeting of tile Mary Williams Club was held Thursday, April 27.
