-PAGE TEN THE CATALINA P.M., THURSDAY, MAY GIVEN BY LADIES AID SOCIETY FOR BENEFIT OF NEW CHURCH BUILDING FUND Adults 75c Children 35c WOMEN'S 4TH ANNUAL GOLF TOURNAMENT IS COMPLETE SUCCESS (Continued from Page 1, Column 2) Southern California Golf Association, and director of the Catalina event. Mrs. Midgely presided at the first tee, assisted by Mrs. S. E. Browne, and spent the hours of night working golf card puzzles. It takes a great mind- reader to figure out which column of figures of a foursome belongs to whom. Somehow, Mrs. Midgely man- aged the impossible; anyway, she de- voted the ten 'hours of night to their solution, themaking up of pairing score sheets and the diplomatic straightening out of mooted rules. Floyd Gillett dashed hither and yon after tickets, and made himself the most beloved man during the tourna- ment by keeping all the ladies happy. Somehow, he managed an outside room with ocean view and bath for every fair golfer. As a reward, Floyd was introduced and initiated into the sacred realm of golf and made a champion player during his first match notwithstanding a sawed-througb dri- ver. In fact, Floyd, before the first nine holes were played, got so good that Mrs. Wittig, who was anxious to see fair play, pressed his ball down into the sand of the sand-trap to give him something of a real handicap. The feature comic foursome of the tournament comprised Mrs. Midgely and Floyd Gillett, Mrs. Brown and "Mickey" McCully. Their popularity required the gallery rope, carried by a dozen caddies, to prevent the crowd from milling over on to the greens. While Gillett was given the handicap of sawed-through driver and buried balls in sand traps, McCully's handi- cap was Gillett, and a pet glove which the short man coveted. The'members of the great foursome are still figuring out the score made as the Islander goes to press, and probably will continue to be so occu- pied at the time the next issue also goes to press. Be that as it may, Floyd Gillett DID win the last three holes. Next in popularity during the tour- nament to Floyd Gillett was the genial pro, Roy Phillips, who had to eat his dinners at the Hotel St. Catherine in relays--a course at each table, so as to divide his charming personality among the Brentwood, Potrero and Wilshire Club delegations with -impar- tial fairness. Last reports were to the effect that Roy was giving-golf les- sons at midnight to improve the game of several fair contenders in the final ro*lnds, Most interesting is the fact, how- ever, that Catalina's charms draw the big entrv lists for island golf tourna- ments. Everyone always declares that a wonderful time was 'had and that to have had golf as an excuse to come to Catalina for a few days is worth even more than actual competition in play. Catalina is the one place where even golf is not taken too seriously, and the game is enjoyed rather than made a serious, nerve-straining business of merely winning from the other player. It is announced that the Gardena High School party which was booked to visit the Island on Saturday, May 7, has been postponed to a later date. A. C. Brode, R. C. Mankowski, Jas. Garvey, Jonah Jones Jr., Dan M. Bak- er Jr., and Dr. Harriman Jones were Tuna Club week-end guests. SOCIAL AND PERSONAL Geo. C. Thomas III was over for a few days last week, fishing from the "Aerial," with Capt. Geo. C. Farns- worth. Mr. Thomas, who is an active member of the Tuna Club, is intending fishing here during the coming season. Mr. and Mrs. Chas. D. jarrett were guests of A. C. Brode of Maiden Lane during last week, returning to the mainland on Sunday's steamer. Mr. Brode was here over the week-end and left for Los Angeles Monday after- noon. SCOUT NEWS Meeting was convened at 7:30 p.m., and roll was called. Mr. Reid made an announcement about su~nmer caml) at Cherry Valley. The cost of this trip is $9.55 for ten days. The patrols then fell out for a short patrol meet- ing. There is to be a Scout birthday dinner Wednesday (tonight) at 6 o'clock. We had as visitor at the meeting, Mr. Patterson, who taught the boys a new game which kept them occupied for some time. The whole" Scout troop would like to hav'e the fathers come down at any of the meet- ings so that they can see what is go- ing on in the troop.

The ordinance, numbered 507, is a du- plicate of the one recently adopted by the city of Long Beach. The ordi- nance prohibits the wearing of trunks only, by men, and brassiere-and-trunk suits by women. Before passing the revised bathing suit ordinance, the Hermosa Beach City Council has held meetings open to the public for the last two months, in which the subject of abbreviated bathing suits was thoroughly discussed. --" O" ALL-YEAR CLUB ENDORSED Stressing the co-operation furnished the Olympic Organizing Committee by the All-Year club, a resolution was forwarded to the Southern Califor- nia national tourist advertising or- ganization by Chairman William May Garland of theXth Olympiad.
