The lecture on "Labor Problems," given on Tuesday evening of last week at the Congregational Church, by Dr. Charles E. Martin of the University of California, Southern Branch, was a very interesting one. His talk cov- ered the political problevas confronting organized labor in England, Italy, Mex- ico and the United States. The lec- ture was given nuder the auspices of the Avalon class in Modern Social and Economic Problems, which meets every two weeks. It was well attended, and those who did not go nfissed a lot of valuable information. Elsewhere will be found an announcement of another lecture, to be given next Tuesday eve- ning, May 20th. Only one hundred and thirty-two Avalon voters were Sufficiently inter- ested in the presidential primary elec- tion last week to go to the polls and vote. If the American people ever lose their present electoral privileges it will be because they s~ lightly es- teem the privileges which they now enjoy. Those who voted distributed their ballots as follows: Republicans for Coolidge delegates, 65; Republi- cans for Johnson delegates, 45; Dem- ocrats for McAdoodelegates, 15; Dem- ocrats for no preference delegates, 2; Prohibitionists, 4; Socialist, 1. The Board of Election was composed of W. M. James, inspector; Mrs. Ellen Newberry and Mrs. Theresa A Mac- Kay, judges; and the clerks were Mrs. Ruth Griffith, Mrs. Nora F.

Editor Catalina Islander: Mr. Streeter received the copies of The Islander which you so kindly sent. In the copy of April thirtieth, an- nouncing the winners of the Light Tackle Club, we find that I have won the James W. Jump trophy and the P. V. Reyes prize for my little twenty- two-pound tuna on light tackle. This was most unexpected, and much ap- preciated, and I wish you would thank the board for the honor. It is espec- ially gratifying to have my name on the Jump Cup, as Mr. Jump is the champion light tackle fisherman of Catalina, which means the world. As I am the only fishing representa- tive of the family at present, I will have to come over soon and try for my silver button ..... Please keep the Reyes' prize for me until we come over. Mr. Streeter sends his kindest regards. Sincerely, (Mrs. L. P.) Corn D. Streeter. Mosquito Camp, San Ciemente, Burned San Pedro, May 10--One of the most complete collections of marine speci- mens in the country was destroyed late yesterday in a fire which burned the resort for yachtsmen at Mosquito Harbor, on the island of San Clemen- te, 56 miles from San Pedro. George Michaelis, sole occupant of the island at the time, was badly burned, but was rescued from the flames by Captain George Meshley, skipper of the "Betty Bob," then lying in the harbor, who swam ashore when he saw the building on fire. The loss is estimated at $20,000. The fire originated from the explosion of a gas stove on which Michaelis cooked his meals. The island is owned by the govern- ment, but has been a rendezvous for yachtsmen. The fireboat Amazon was sent out from San Pedro today with supplies for Michaelis. Cecil B. de Mille came across the channel Saturday in his racing speed- boat Defiance, bringing sonxe of his company to try out in Descanso bay some stunts in aquaplaning, which were very successful, and were watched by quite a number of people. His yacht the Seaw.ard also came over. Mr. de Mille will start work next week on a picture of which many scenes will be taken in the bay in front of the Hotel St. Catherine. Several local speed- boats have been engaged to assist. Catalina--"in all the world no trip like this." future-greats revel in the sport for healthy, physical exercise, which au- tomatically keps the mind occupied. Therefore, every true-blooded Amer- ican child takes delight in playing ball. Colleges and universities harmonize athletics with strenuous studies. In order to be a succ'essful, conscientious student, one must build up a strong, healthy constitt~tion. Wrestling con- .stantly with complicated mathematical problems, struggling with the world's greatest literary giants, requires men- tal stamina; hence the power to con- quer depends on the condition of a man's physique. The danger of taxing the mind too much and neglecting the body, or vise versa, lies in the fact the afternoon run. When this1 the steamship Cabrillo will bet the "Around-the-Island trips mer.
