PAGE TEN THE CATALINA PUBLIC EXPENDITURES On Tuesday evening of last week, at the Congregational Church, Dr. Charles E. Martin, of the department of political science, University of Cal- ifornia, Southern Branch, gave his scheduled lecture before the Avalon political science class on "Public Ex- penditures." Those who had the privilege of hear- ing him certainly have a clearer idea of what taxes are levied for than they probably ever had before. Speaking particularly of national expenses, some of the items enumerated were those of the legislative department, (Congress), public buildings, national defense, roads and highways, educa- tion; the good of specified individuals, such as public charities and pensions, workingmen's compensation, etc. Some of the ways in which revenues are raised are through excise, internal revenue, tariff, property, inheritance, poll and income taxes. The speaker also emphasized the de- sirability of having a carefully pre- pared budget in order to intelligently check and control expenditures. Dr. Martin's last lecture for the pre- sent school year will be given on Tuesday evening of next week, June 3rd, and his subject will be: "Repar- ations, and the Allies Debts to This Country." The admission fee is 50 cents, which goes toward covering the expenses of the class. FISH INDUSTRY GROWING Los Angeles is now the largest sar- dine exporting city on the continent. Sardine exports from Los Angeles harbor for the first four months of 1924, total of 13,213,125 pounds, or within twenty percent of the entire total for 1923, and more than three times the entire total for 1922. Sar- cline exports for the first quarter are valued at $1,006,000. In 1922 Los An- geles was the second largest sardine exporting city on the continent; ex- ceeded only by San Francisco, and fol- lowed by New York, which ranked third place. In 1923, Los Angeles ex- ceeded its 1922 total by eleven and one half million pounds, with a total of 15,432,389 pounds. BIG CATCH IN APRIL Another record fish catch was taken into the Los Angeles harbor during the month of April, according to reports received by the trade extension de- partment of the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce. Statistics compiled by the state game and fish commission show that during the month a total of 7,311,301 pounds of fish were unloaded at cannery and fish dealers' markets by the Southern California fishing fleet. The specie which lead the list of varieties in total weight was sardines, with 5,571,614 pounds making the catch. Barracuda was second on the list with 641,222 pounds and yellowtail was third with 277,939.

TOM MIX OUT OF RACE LOCATED THE BRIMSTONE Tom Mix came over with a party of friends on board his cruiser Miss Mix- it Saturday night.

After the neecessary repairs had been made he again crossed to Avalon to spend the day at his Island home on the hillside. FISH HUNTING (Science Service) Instad of fishing for fish, Somoa is- landers often hunt for them. Spears are used against fish traveling in schools, where chance shots may. prove effective. Old men and women also beat the water with a flat, curved piece of wood, to drive the fish into shallow water along the coral reefs, where they can be caught with the hands. The fish which take refuge under rocks are tempted out by bait, and then are speared. Fish hunting in Samoa is a hazardous occupation. Some of the fsh bite ~,e~ erely, and poisonous snakes may also be hiding under the rocks. Magazines, newspapers, candies, etc., at WINDLE'S NEWS STAND. They were sitting around the fire place at the St. Catherine Hotel one night last week, when one of the visi- tors started a debate regarding the location of heaven and hell. "Heaven is right here!" exclaimed the successful angler. "That so?" interrupted the light tackle enthusiast. He w*alked to the fire and spat into the flame. "There is no hell," he nmttered. "No hell?" chastised one of the ladies. "Why, I know in nay heart there is a hell, and--" "There, that's located it!" exclaimed the angler who hadn't landed a fish that day. It is umterstood that at the Mary Williams Club picnic an improvised bench broke under its load, and that several of the ladies felt quite upset about it. Write to the Catalina Light Tackle Club, P.
