Mr. and Mrs. Thonms Godman of Los Angeles are rejoicing in the ad- vent of a daughter in their home. The young lady was born May 23rd, and weighed 7 pounds. She is much pleased with the name bestowed upon her--Helen Delores. She first saw light of day at the California Hospital, where her mother, then Miss Catalina Adargo, became a trained nurse during war days. Mrs. Godman was waited upon during her confinement by some who were classmates at the time of her student days at the hospital. "Cat- alina" is said to have been the secomt white girl born on the ".Magic isle." COINCIDENCE The flight of time and the incidents of life now and then bring about odd coincidences. For instance: During war times three young ladies from Avalon entered Los Angeles hospitals to become trained army nurses. We believe that each young lady was graduated and received her diploma. Of recent years each of these ladies has married, and now, in May, 1924, they have each become a mother. She that was Miss Mable Reed has a dau- ghter; the former Miss Catalina Adar- go also has a daughter, while the third of the trio of nurses, known during her maidenhood as Miss Catherine MacLean, has a son. The births, in order named, occured May 19th, 23rd and 24th. It is reported that recently a party of tourists inquired if there was any objection to their eating their lunch in the submarine gardens. They were told that they were at perfect liberty to do so if they wished to, CARVER'S CATALINA MARKET MARY WILLIAMS CLUB HOLDS MAKES BIG STEP FORWARD PICNIC AND INSTALLATION Mr. G. D. Tully, auditor and Mr. Walter Balsom, superintendent of {he Young's Market Co., Inc., Los Angeles, were in Avalon Wednesday and Thurs- day of last week completing arrange- ments with Chesney W.
