PACE TWO OLD BANNING HOUSE NOW MODERN COTTAGE Oh! Some one has-put there just what I always wanted to. You know, that's the corner we tried to buy sev- eral years .ago! And how well the house suits," said a summer Avalonite to her husband, as they were merrily racing to open their cottage on Clar- essa avenue. "Well, by George, some one did fix up the old shack," replied her husband. "Old shack," she said, "why that's a new house [" "New house is it ? Well my dear, look over that window--guess you need some new glasses." Upon inquiry the editor of the Is- lander finds there are many things going on right under his nose that he knows nothing about. Last fall J. W. Lowe, the owner of the property at Third and Claressa, applied for a permit "to build a porch and make a few alterations." The Is- lander made mention of the fact at that time. All winter, evenings and Sundays' one saw Mr. Lowe working on the place. The last few weeks, however, he has been wielding the paint brush, and, sure enough, the old shack has been transformed into a livable, comfort- able home. Several years ago the Lowes came to Avalon, looking for a house, and bought from Mr. Macfarland, thru the Santa Catalina Island Company's rep- resentative, the old Banning house, which old residents remember as standing north of the Metropole Ho- tel, then moved to Catalina avenue, and from there some nine or ten years ago to the present location on Third and Claressa. At first the house was to them but and old shell, which could be remodel- ed; but upon closer acquaintance Mr. Lowe found it to be built as the ships are built, and of the best of redwood, and proved, to his own satisfaction, that time was of no value either to the workman or the owner when it was under construction. So the Lowes, loving Avalon, and intending to live here permanently, have taken their time and have re- modeled the place in such a way that all the good points will be preserved. While the outside, to the causual ob- server, is a present~day, neat bunga- low, the inside is to be preserved as one of the old land-marks of the Is- land. Thus once more the Magic Isle as- serts its true purpose, and one is again made to realize that while the Island in the next few months will be a "seething mass," back of it all there is something more than fun and money that draws the true townsman. Mr. Lowe not only has beautified his own corner, but, taking a place with the company as "one of the boys," has "done his bit" all winter. Subscribe now--~2 per year.

Guidinger Ground Floor Avalon Inn 309 Beacon Street, Avalon . ~, Move to Save Klamath Salmon People of Siskyou and Del Norte Counties have awakened to the dan- ger of depleted natural resources as a result of a power project planned for the lower reaches of the Klamath River, and have formed an organiza- tion to be known as the Klamath River Conservation League. This organization plans to save the Klamath River as a source of food fish and as an angler's paradise. At present the organization is busily en- gaged in securing sufficient names on a petition to place or] the November ballot an initiative measure designed to protect the river's resources and the interest of the people. The Fish and Game Commision, by means of newspaper publicity and lec- tures, is aiding this conservation league Unquestionably, the saving of the Klamath as a breeding place for King Salmon and and sea run trout is one of the most fundamental conservation measures ever championed by the Commission.
