ONE OF AVALON BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA Last Friday afternoon seventeen Scouts of Troop No. One took a cruise to Emerald Bay aboard the Ehno II, captained by First Class Scout John Minney. A big campfire was enjoyed that night. Saturday scout games were played, and instruction in scout work given. A number of scout tests were passed. In the afternoon swimming sports were engaged in. Saturday evening was the big time of the trip--games, contests, stories, songs and yells, filled every moment of the time. Sunday morning the scouts had a short non-secretarian sacred service, the subject being "Mother--our good scout helper." Following this the scouts broke camp and returned .to Avalon. Throughout the trip strict ob- servance of the foot and mouth dis- ease quarantine was required. The trip was much enjoyed by all, and each scout profited by it. Scoutmaster H. Benjamine Robison and Senior Patrol Leader Malcom Renton were in charge Next Saturday the scouts will work on the board walk at Pebbly Beach. Avalon Cub Scouts The Avalon Wolf Cubs will take an over-night trip to Willow Cove next Friday night. They will leave Avalon at 4 o'clock from the pleasure pier, returning Saturday afternoon. A lunch should be taken for Friday night. Saturday morning and noon the Cubs may plan to cook their own meals. Take plenty of warm blankets, in as small a bundle as possible. Sometime ago twenty cubs enjoyed a similar trip and they are eager for this one. Cubmaster H. Benjamine Robison will be in charge. More than one hundred Avalon rep- resentatives and their friends partici- pated in the "blow out" of the Ameri- can Legion Post of Avalon last Thurs- day evening at White's Landing. The boys were "transported" on the Betty O, and arrived just in time for the big barbecue dinner on the beach. Everyone had an enjoyable outing and it was voted that the annual outing is "getting better and better every year." The Catalina Jaunting Car Company is now making daily trips over the stage road to the Isthmus. Two Pierce-Arrow automobiles make the trip from Avalon to the Isthmus in two hours, stopping at the Summit, Middle Ranch, Eagles Nest and Little Harbor. One of the most popular rides operated by this company is the one "Seeing Avalon from the Sky-Line Drive." William Macbeth, the star agent of the Los Angeles" Examiner, stepped off the Avalon Monday and is ready to meet all newcomers and to tell them what a great paper he works for. Mac. will be at the Windle News Stand for a few days while Frank Burgess spends a brief vacation in Los Angeles. As we go to press, the new glass bottom boat Princess is entering Ava- lon harbor from Wilmington. All the boats in the bay are decorated for the occasion. The Princess is the last word in boats for the pnrpose of car- rying passengers over the marine gar- dens. Mr. and Mrs. C. Specht o? Los An- geles are spending a few days at their cottage on Sumner avenue. FENDLER CASE COMES UP IN COURT THIS WEEK Final ruling in the case of Grace A. Fendler against Richard Walton Tully, Oliver Morosco and others, in the now celebrated case of "The Bird of Para- dise," comes up this week in the New York Supreme court. It is interesting to the people of the Islaml on account of the fact that Mrs. Fendler's young son, Harold, is one of the attorneys in the case. The old- timers remember Harold as a boy in short pants, Mrs. Fendler wrote a play which she called "In Hawaii," and alleges that Mr. Tully incorporated in "The Bird of Paradise" five characters and everything else that he wanted. Mrs. Fendler is suing for $250,000 actual damages, and all the profits of the "Bird." Over one and one-half million dollars are involved in this case. Two offers of compromise have been offered Mrs. Fendler by the defend- ants and refused by the plaintiffs, it is said. Mrs. Fendler's main trial attorney is William Rand, a law partner of for- mer District Attorney Jerome of New York City, and himself a former dis- trict attorney of that great city. Harold Fendler graduated last sum- mer from Stanford University with a J. D., and passed the bar examination and was admitted to practice l~w in all the courts of California last July. After the case is over Harold will take a special course in law at Har- vard University. The Strand Theatre had a full house Monday evening--the large crowd be- ing drawn by two special features. One was the presentation of "The U. P. Trail"--a picturization of Zane Grey's s~ry under that title. The second was an exhibition of moving picture scenes taken in Avalon and along the stage road to Middle Ranch Canyon, showing the progress and de- velopment of Avalon's new water sys- tem, which it is expected will be in full operation next month. The picture showing the municipal power plant in Falls Canyon was a revelation even to some of our local citizens who had not visited it recently. These local pictures will be shown for several evenings, giving all an opportunity to see them. Captain O'Brien, master of the Beauford, was an Avalon visitor last Sunday. The Beauford is anchored at Camp Banning while the vessel is be- ing used in a Buster Keaton picture. Captain O'Brien is one of the old school of master mariners and is well known in every port of the Pacific ocean. He was a very close friend of the late Jack London, as the author bad many times sailed on vessels un- der command of Captain O'Brien. A. C. Burns, the aviator, who has been in Miami, Florida, since last fall is back home and is getting his flying- boat landing at Sugar Loaf Point in readiness for Summer business.
