Joe Henault, the well-known barber was among the south-bound passen- gers who came in on the steamship Avalon Sunday noon. Tom Reed arrived from the main- land on Sunday, with his features wreathed in smiles. Wonder if he had good news from the Arizona mines ? Miss Jaequeline Babette Barker ar- rived at the Catalina Hospital May 7, much to the joy of Mr. and Mrs. Barker. Both mother and daughter are doing well. Miss Edith Pierce of New York City, who is a member of the AI Jolson company which played "Bom- bo" in Los Angeles last week, visited Avalon a few days ago. Dr. and Mrs. O. L. Cornwall of Sandpoint, Idaho, are guests at the home of the Dunkle's. Dr. Cornwall has been Boy Scout Excutive for the northern counties of Idaho and several towns in Montana for the past two years. Cement foundations have been laid for the new home on the slope of Av- lon Hill which is being built for Cap- tain Claude Walton, and soon the superstructure will show up. It prom- ises to fit in well with the other mod- ern structures on the hill. Pat Farris, chief pilot for the Pacific Marine Airways, operating between Avalon and San Pedro, reported sev- eral schools of big fish that he observ- ed while crossing the channel Wednes- day and Thursday of last week. One of the schools, Pat said looked like blue fin tuna. He spotted them about five miles from the end of the break- water, going north. A school of mack- LECTURE DATE CANCELLED The following telegram was received Monday evening from Dr. David Starr Jordan of Stanford University, who was announced to lecture Thursday evening on the the subject of "Marine Life and Game Fishes of the Pacific Coast." Dr. Jordan's many Ava- lon friends extend their invitation for some future date. The telegram: Palo Alto, May 12, 1924. Ernest Windle, Avalon Calif.: Must cancel Lecture--Must reach Los Angeles noon Friday--Regret sin- cerely. David Starr Jordan. It is announced . that the Avalon Hotel Association has leased for one year, the property located on the cor- ner of Crescent and Marilla avenues. It is understood that the new tenant, Mr. F. Stuart Whyte, proposes to build a motion picture theatre, and that the new building will be complet- ed by July 1. The lease for the Ava- lon Hotel Association was signed by Mr. Clune, in Los Angeles. The total rainfall for the present season to date at Avalon is 4.89 inches. The rainfall for the season of 1920-21 was 11.68 inches; for 1921-22, 18.37 in- ches, and for 1922-23, 12.24 inches. Al- though Catalina Island is ahnost eight inches behind in the average rainfall, it is believed that the Middle Ranch water, which is now being pumped to Avalon, will make up for the defici- ency of rainfall when it is turned into the city mains. The cruiser Patricia arrived in Ava- lon Saturday, making its first trip of the season from Wilmington. On board were Mr. and Mrs. R. J. Cope, Mrs. Lucy M. Cline, Mr. and Mrs. William Richards, and, of course, Miss Patrieia Cline, grand-daughter of the owner of the palatial cruiser, was on board just to tell "Grandpa Cope" what to do in ease of trouble. From the breakwater to Sugar Loaf the trip was made in two hours and fifteen" minutes. Then Patricia quit her job and went swimming. We mean the HARRY ADAMS ORDERED THE YACHT CLUB SIGNAL MAST The Catalina Island Yacht Club has been the pleased recipient of a very useful gift, according to= Ed Abbott, secretary-treasurer of the club. This present was given by Mr. Harry W. Adams, sportsman, angler and yacht- man, and president of the Tuna Club during 1921. Mr. Adams, being very enthusiastic about the success of the new yacht club, started in making the present that a yacht club should possess, a fine signal mast, and set of flags, and said he desired to present the club with such an outfit. He instructed Secretary Abbott to have the mast constructed and stepped at the club- house, to order the flags necessary, and spare no expense to have it cor- rect in every way, and send him the bill. Secretary Abbott informes the Is- lander that the gift of Mr. Adams has been ordered, and will be shipped with the club's float this week; that he fol- lowed Mr. Adams' instructions to spare no expense to have the signal mast and flags correct. This generous gift of Mr. Adams will Cost better than $200 when complete. The club is to have a bronze plate made and at- tached to the mast, setting forth the fact that Mr. Adams presented the mast and flags to the club. TEN YEARS AGO Glancing over the files of the Islan- der of ten years ago this week, we note the following incidents: The chamber of Commerce re-elect- ed its officers for another year. Where is it now? The city cash was reported as fol- lows: Wharf fund, $328.40; dog tax, $56 ; general fund, $762.09, total $1086.49. The Tuna Club had just elected offi- cers for the year. John E.
