Safety firstT Get a permit and burn off the dry grass before the 4th, with its fireworks. That new lattice work fence on Sun> ner avenue, adjoining the Island Villa office, is a decided improvement over the former one. If you want to vote for president in November next, you must be on the 1924 great register. Have you regis- tered this year? If not, do it now! The Catalina Sweet Shop, on Cata- lina avenue, opened up for business last week, Jacob Cohn is the proprie- tor, with J. H. Lamar of Los Angeles as manager. We doubt if Avalon Bay ever had so many fine craft in its waters as over the week-end just passed. And it looks as if there would be many more in the weeks to follow. The Pavilion Chocolate Shop, at the entr~,nce to the Crescent Avenue Pa- vilion, opened for the season a few days ago. Mrs. Orton and daughter Ethel are catering to the needs of their many patrons. Torpedo Boat Destroyer No. 34 steamed into Avalon harbor at noon Saturday. As the vessel came to an- chor the band on board gave several concert numbers. Afterwards the band and quite a few or the gobs marched in the parade. Tom White is determined to let the visitors to Avalon learn about the at- tractions at the Isthmus. That big, bright bottle information booth on the North Beach is an attractive innova- tion. And at night its many colored lights add to the attractions of the water front. That new fish market down on the pleasure pier looks fine. It is a credit to the community. Harry Tregarthen, the genial proprietor, has the place fitted up in an ideal manner, and is always ready to serve fine fish--and he doesn't charge anything for the pleasant smile which goes with it.

Secretary Abbott and Jas, W. Jump are handling this first regatta of the club, and are being assisted by D. M. Callis, chairman of the Power Boat Regatta Committee of the California Yacht Club. Mr. McCallis is a naval architect of prominence from the At- lantic coilst, and is thoroughly famil- iar with handling yacht regattas and marine circus stunts. The officials of the Catalina Island Yacht Club are happy to have his co-operation and as- sistance. Mr. Callis has been located at Long Beach for the past two years, introducing his models and plan of building, and is now having several of his designs constructed for delivery. According to Secretary Abbott, a conference with Mr, Callis amt Mr. Alvin Frank, owner of the fast speed- boat Lucky Strike, 2nd last week, re- sulted in a tentative program of events being adopted that should prove one of the best regattas ever attempted off Avalon, even during the (lays of the Los Angeles Motor Boat Club events. Mr. Frank being a charter member of the Catalina Island Yacht Club, is very enthusiastic aboot the coming regatta, and will have his fast boat entered in the races. Our oht friend and speed king, Joe Fellows, is another who will enter his Two Fellows, and his son Rusty will as usual be Joe's sailing partner. We can also look forward to that veteran speedboat fan, Frank A. Garbutt, en- tering his fast Mystery IV. Harry Fisher, of Long Beach, is sure to enter his Miss Long Beach, and with the Miss Catalina of Avalon, owned by our genial citizen Mr. Richey, there should be afforded the speed fans all the thrills they can absorb. These boats can attain a speed of 60 miles and better, and when under full power make one of the most thrilling sights imaginable. San Diego will be represented by two boats, thru the efforts of Ex-Commo- (tore Clem Stone. It is planned to run the speed boats and cruiser races over a mile on a side triangle in the bay off the St. Cath- erine Hotel, as the board walk and road around the bay toward the hotel will afford ample room for hundreds of spectators to have a good unobstruct- ed view at all times of the racing boats. The speed boats will race ten laps of the course, making a total dis- tance of thirty miles. This race will be held during the morning of the Fourth, and the cruiser races during the afternoon. On Saturday, the 5th, the 610cubic- inch class speedboat contest will be held in the morning, and a "bang-and- go back," and a handicap cruiser race will be held in the afternoon. A special race for 151 cubic-inch dis- placement speedboats will be held on Sunday morning, together with a mar- ine circus. Sailing races are to be held every afternoon. In the 610 class the entries are the Francis II, C. A. Maekey, owner; Joker, Ralph Hamlin owner; LaReine, Mrs. E. B. Gifford owner; Hot Dog, Dusty Farnum owner; Spoffer, T. H. Tichner owner; Mina B., A. H. Braly owner; Radio, E. B. Griffen owner; CATALINA TO MAKE ITS TRIAL TRIP ON JUNE 2$TH From latest reports it is understood that the new cross-channel steamship Catalina, now being built by the LOS Angeles Ship Building Company at Wilmington, will make its trial trip on June 28th, and that the vessel will be put in regular service on July 2rot.

Those nifty little cruisers turned out by Fellows and Stewart and called the Fellowscraft 32's, will be represented by T. E. Endicott's Martha Ellen and M, T. Macha's Manchita. There will be a nmnber of "R" boats, so that lovers of the graceful action of a racing sail boat will be more than pleased. That well known racing sai- lor, Ben Weston, will give the crowd the thrill of their young lives with his new "R" boat Debra, designed by that naval architect, Edison B. Schoek, and built under his supervision at the Sea Craft Corporation's plant on Mor- mon Island, Wilmington, Cal. Mr. Schock is the chairman of the sailing regatta committee of the California Yacht Club, and will handle the sail- ing racing of the Catalina Island Yacht Club's regatta. Other "R" boats that will enter will be California, E. H. Farwell owner; Angela, S. M. Spalding owner; Lady V., J. Pugh owner and Machree, John M. Laugton, Jr., owner. There also will be a number of the Star class of fast sailing boats of the smaller type. Secretary Ed Abbott informed the Catalina Islander that while the yacht clubhouse will not be completely fin- ished by the Fourth of July, every- thing will be so far along that mem- bers and their guests will be afforded safe and comfortable landing faeitities and house comforts. The official open- ing will be announced in a very short time after July 1st, and at that time the election of flag officers of the club will take place.
