FISHERS FISHING FISH Tuna Caught to date, 32. BASEBALL The Catalin& Cubs Whip Wilmington in Exciting Contest Jim Kenny's Effectiveness in Pinches Enables Islanders to Annex Tenth Consecutive Win. By William d. Doran For six innings the Wilmington Cubs and the Islanders put on a neat exhi- bition of snappy baseball; but in the lucky seventh the Cubs came to life and chased four runs.~over the rubber, thereby giving Kenny a comfortable lead; hence the star mound artist made short work of the visitors, retiring them via the strike-out route.

Smith, deputy tax collector for Los Angeles county, was in Avalon last week for several days, collecting tbe municipal and county taxes. The rate for 1924 was $5,03 per hundred. The increase in the rate this year is said to be because of an additional rate in the school taxes. Avalon is now operated in connection with the Long Beach system, and the tax rate is the same as that of Long Beach. The lecture on "Reparations," given ,on Tuesday evening of last week un- der abe auspices Of the political science class, Dr. Charles E. Martin of the University of California, Southern Branch, proved an interesting exposi- tion of the several angles of that much discussed subject. Harry Tregarthen of the Avalon Fish Market, when asked regarding the variety of tuna that are now being caught by anglers, stated that the fish were bluefin tuna. "Last year," he said "nearly all the big fish were yel- lowfin tuna." Have you noticed that A~alon now has its "Speed" delivery truck. I.t is giving good service in furnishing "Speed," Catalina's famous fresh orange drink, to the various local dealers in beverages--who in turn supply the thirsty public with that delicious and refreshing beverage. A forcer of men has been busy early mornings during the past week, at low tide, clearing from the bathing beach the numerous large rocks which were washed up during the winter storms.

And, to the members of the press, Mr. Cornish said, in his usual, modest way: "Gen- tlemen, I came; I conquered." Adios." Gould's Hit Counts "Howling" Glen Gould punched a hit into right field with Doran and Cunningham on the sacks in the sev- enth frame, after two were out, which resulted in tearing down the morale of the visitors. Glen was the hitting star of the day, gathering two base hits when needed. " 'No new opportunities itt world !' you say ? And you out good money to let play upan the invisiable emotions ?"

It seemed as if the wily broadbill was watching the angler, for he made a terrific lunge---and away went harness, rod, reel--~neverything. "Hard luck ? Was there ever a more genuine case ?" The question now is, where will the broadbill leave the fishing outfit ? C. Alma "Baker, C. B. E., of London, England, guest of James W. Jump, vice-president of the Tuna Club, took his blue botton tuna on June 3rd, fish- ing from Mr. Jump's launch, the Ran- ger, with the assistance of Robert B. Jump, who gaffed the 108 pound fish. Mr. Baker took his fish after a pretty fight lasting forty minutes, and on ar- riving at the pleasure pier to have his prize weighed he was met by a recep- tion committee, composed of Herbert Earlscliff, Fred H. Reed and Ralph Bandana, the last named being one of the Tuna Club tackle committee. Af- ter the fish had been weighed and the tackle examined and approved by the three distinguished members of the club, Mr. Bandini placed tbe much coveted button in the lapel of Mr. Ba- ker's coat. On June 6th Mr. Baker took another fish weighing 111 pounds. James W. Jump, vice president of the Tuna Club, is expected back from his ~astern trip about the 14th. So far, no light tackle fish have been ta- ken.
