PAGE SEVEN IMPROVEMENTS AT MOTT'S "TWIN SUNSHINE" COMPLETE The charming Mott residence, "Twin Sunshine," on Claressa avenue, has been undergoing substantial changes and improvements. When asked re- garding them Major Mott said : "The pith of the tale is that mr radio station has been growing so rapidly that more room for the appar- atus was obligatory. The station was "over-flowing" into the dining room. Having very little time to plan such things, and knowing the artistic tastes of both Miss Hewitt and her mother, I asked them to be so good as to at- tend to the whole thing. With the generous and kindly assistance of Mr. Renton, Mr. Grew, Mr. Flannigan and Mr. Ramsey, the house is just as we wished it, and e/ninently satisfac- tory. The gates (that are pure Chin- ease in character) date far beyond that time, and although seen e~crywhere in China today, are really modeled from the gates of Solomon's Temple. The vermillion and gold of their colorings represent heat and light in Chinese symbolism. "One of the twin houses has had a large, sunny music room, in an I, shape, added to it, and another bed- room. I shall now use the old dining room, that has been moved into the old sitting room, as a greatly enlarged radio operating room and study "I would point out that in no way is the house, or are the gardens, japan- ese. So many people make this error. There is nothing Japanese about the place, for the Japanese have no art of their own--at all! We traveled ex- tensively all over Japan and China, for some seven years, and everything that the Japanese have, even to their char- acters in writing, are of Chinese ori- gin, and used with but few changes." Many rare plants have been added to the lovely gardens that adjoin the Mutt residence. Its owners call it a "Friendship Garden," for the reason that numberless friends send them choice bulbs, slips and plants from all over the world. Major Mutt expresses in enthusias- tic terms his appreciation for the many courtesies and great assistance that have been tendered to him by the Santa Catalina Island Company. LET US FRIENDLY BE We walk the same streets, We ride the same cars; Our sky is the same, Our sun and our stars; We eat the same food, The same clothing wear, Taste the same joys, Drink the same cup of care; Our laughter is common, Alike are our tears, While hidden within Are the same hopes and fears; The wonder of love ls the same, rich or poor; The same is the angel Of death at each door. Shake hands then, my friend! For, all said and done, In great things and small It is clear we are one. And, chiefest of all Is the Faith that we hold-- We pray the same Prayer, Read the same Book of old. Aye, the hart of us all Is the same, is the same, Who worship together In one blessed Name. --Robert Freeman. Write to the Catalina Light Tackle Ctub, P. O. Box 14, Avalon, California, for information about sea angling. Catalina will give you the rest of your life. Come to Catalina. The grammar grades of the Avalon schools closed last Friday. The entire eighth grade class was promoted James McGriff of Los Ahgeles is occupying the responsible position of chef at Price's Confectionery. Paint up and clean up! Many have done so, but there are some rather "seedy" looking buildings among the newly painted ones. Too bad! The opening of the new Price's Confectionery at the corner of Cres- cent and Catalina avenues, last Wed- nesday evening, marked the establish- ment of a first class modern restau- rant in connection therewith. Their many friends were lavish in praise o{ the handsome room and elaborate fur- nishings. The culinary department is in the hands of a capable chef, who is producing some choice meals Bear in mind that they have not lessened the attractions of the fountain and candy counter--but added the other service. Mrs. Frank Burgess and children are visiting in America. Frank puts in all his time writing ads about some candy that was shipped here by mis- take, but the candy company told him to sell it. You will find the ad on page eight, there is quite an assort- ment and the prices are low for that class of goods. But he says look out for his ad next week--so many people were disappointed by not getting there in time to get in on that pipe sale that he ordered another shipment, and he has cigarette holders, cigar holders, and other smokers' needs..
