The columns of the Islander are open to the general public, on any of the Iol- lowing subjects: Local Polincs and Gov- ernmen, Fishing, Hunting and Camping. Items of local news interest will be greatly appreciated. FAMOUS LAST WORDS A great thinker was asked, "Where is Happiness ?" He replied "\Vhere you are!" The pleasure pier is now ready to accommodate the summer throngs. The East Side Terrace is to have another new home. Foundations are being laid for a neat cottage for L. R. Wadsworth of Los Angeles. His building will be located between the home of Mrs. Bailey and that of Mrs. Stange, above the second terrace. OUT TO GET SEASON'S FIRST 100-POUND TUNA Vice-President James W. Jump of the Tuna Club, with his guest, C. Alma Baker, C.B.E. of Federal Malay States Penang, arrived on board the famous cruiser Ranger last Friday for a few days fishing. They are out searching daily for the first tuna of the season. Friend Jump would just like to hang up the first fish of the season before leaving Wednesday for the east with his wonderful song-birds, "The Chan- ters." Mr. Jump's annual trip back east at the very time our fish arrive and commence feeding is a source of special inducement for him to hasten the journey back to California. Any- way, Jimmy, if you don't hang up the first fish the Catalina Islander will send you the news when your good friend Baker lands it. Mr. Baker expects to remain here until October 1. It is four years since Mr. Baker last visited Avalon. This time he brought with him a number of photographs of fish landed in Australia and New Zea- land waters. A photograph of a "swordfish" taken-near Russell, Bay of Islands, is unquestionably that of a marlin swordfish (tetrapturus mitsuk- urii). The broadbill swordfish (Xiphi- as gladius) of the Pacific and Atlantic coasts of this" continent have no styli- from appendages below the gill covers. The Xiphias gladius has pectoral fins. Mr. Baker is one of the most en- thusiastic anglers visiting Avalon. This time he had ntade a special trip froul his Penang home, hoping to land a tuna. It was from the deck of the famous cruiser Ranger that C. Alma B~ker, C. B. E., of London, fought the monster 306-pound thresher shark Monday afternoon. The battle lasted two hours and forty-five minutes. The shark measured fourteen feet in length, and is the first speclmen of this variety brought to Avalon for three years. During the battle the flail-like tall lashed the water into a white foam on several occasions. Mr. Baker is a guest of Mr. James W. Jump owner of the cruiser Ranger. The swordfish uses his long sword to stir up and mutilate sardines, and not as a weapon against larger ani- mals. It is announced that the band from the Whittier State School will play in Avalon for a week, commencing Saturday evening, June 21st. Paint up and clean up. Quite a number of Avalonites have already done sO, others are now at work at it, and everybody else should follow suit. Plans for the new schoolhouse are now being threshed out between Sup- erintendent W. L. Stephens of Long Beach, Principal Dunkle of Avalon and the architect Webber. It is hoped to have the building completed this fall. James R. Witmer is preparing to open up their fruit snow confectionery lishment this week. Reed & Anderson are planning to open up their fruit snow confectionary stand, at the entrance to Carver's, next week. Trolling from the cruiser Angler on Monday, Mr. Harry A. Adams of Los Angeles hooked a tuna and fought it for some time before the line broke. Hal E. Roach and Ray Thomas came over on the Gypsy to do a little fishing from their fishing launch the May-be. President Thomas of the Tuna Club is remaining over. Mr. Roach has returned to the mainland on the Gypsy. BASEBALL (Continued from Pa;e 1, Column 1) Mr. William Doran, who has been writing up the ball games every week for the Islander, did not mention what part he took in the game Sunday. We would like for you to glance at the box score and you will know what Doran did Sunday. He made four runs; one homer; one three-base hit; one sacrifice hit; batted in four runs; stole one base; put out nine men at first, and other plays that helped to make the big score. :Mr. Doran also coaches the school baseball team, and they show much improvement since he took them in hand. We thank you!
