MISS WARRICK PROVES QUICK CHANGE ARTIST Stealing a march on her Avalon friends, Miss Virginia Warrick "hop- ped across" the channel in the flying- boat Friday morning, rushed to the Hall of Records at Los Angeles, and at 4 p. m., she became Mrs. Marshall Warren, II. With Miss Warrick went her mother and the young bridegroom. The "wedding party" returned to Av- alon Friday evening in a speedboat. Then the happy couple were given the usual wedding celebrations by enthus- iastic islanders. The romance had only lasted three days. Mr. Warren arrived here from Los Angeles Tuesday, and registered at the Hotel St. Catherine. The young people "met" at the Casino. Then, as the senario writers say, "the climax was fast and furious." Mr. and Mrs. Warren II, expect to spend their honeymoon at Avalon, af- ter which they will make their home in Hollywood. THE MARY WILLIAMS CLUB Members and friends of the Mary Williams Club will meet in Buena Vista Park on Thursday, May 22nd, for the annual picnic. Busses will leave the office of the Catalina Jaunting Car Company on Crescent avenue at 9:30 a. m., and returning will leave the park at 4 p. m. Fare for round trip, 25 cents. Come, bringing a lunch, and have a good time. J. Dash, Miss Dorothy Hahn and guests, Mrs. George Handley and Mrs. O. W. Cornwall. Miss Dorothy/Hahn made high score. Dainty refreshments were served. The club will meet at the home of Mrs. F. H. Reed May 27. Last Saturday the steamer Avalon brought to Avalon Henry Marquart and Mrs. Eva Pet, and over a thousand other passengers. But the interesting thing about these two particular per- sons is that they called at the Con- gregational parsonage and after a brief interview with Rev. LaRue C. Watson they departed as Mr. and Mrs. Mar- quart. After a short stay on Catalina they are making a trip to the Atlantic coast to visit relatives of both the bride and the groom. They expect to return to California to make their home. "BLUE BIRDS" The Blue Birds with their leader, Mrs. George W. Greene went up to Buena Vista Park Saturday afternoon, where they enjoyed a picnic supper. Violet Watson was the story teller, and fourteen little girls were very at- tentive to a well told story. Those present were Kathleen Hoover, Juanita Guirasich, Georgia Coleman, Irene Hoover, Maxine Carson, Isabell Scott, Elsie Clark, Catherine Brown, Ida Williams, Mary Conrad, Violet Wat- son, Katheryn Dunkle, Lois Harrison, Ruth Edmundson and Helen Sweeney, a new member.

So I answered back and said: '2 get 'enl from such wide- awake letter writers as yourself.'" "On my rowboat, last week, some- body pinned the following sJgn:'~'Lost --Four tuna, just ready to gaff. Last seen fourteen miles out yonder.' Folks, can anybody help this angler? He doesn't care for the fish. He wants the hooks back." "It's not the man who rises early that makes the success of life. He must keep awake while he is up." "The time has gone by when an angler could expect to land a fish by jingling the bait over the contains of the boat." "There is no time like the spring--- when you have live bait and a big school of fish to pick from." "There are plenty of scientific writ- ers telling us what a fish looks like, and how m~ny catch them; but there are not many practical anglers telling us where they catch 'era." "When you hang a bait over the side of the boat, a lot depends upon which variety of fish is feeding while your bait's in the water. And it's the same with human beings: The temp- tations of life are determined largely by the kind of company you keep." On a Life-PreNrver Why don't you drown your sorrow ?
