The grand parade was held Saturday evening on Crescent avenue, amidst a colored display of sparklers, torches and other brilliant illunfina- tions. There were two bands in the procession, and most of the young inen in the parade engaged in comedy stunts that kept the side lines in a continual roar of laughter. After the parade an elaborate ban- quet was served at the Hotel St. Cath- erine. Sunday morning Governor Friend Richardson, who is visiting Avalon this week, gave a brief address to the men assembled on Crescent avenue. The parade over, those who cared to go fishing, boating, swinlnling, hiking, etc., did so, and the remainder of the visitors journeyed to the baseball park to watch a spirited contest between the Catalina Cubs and El Segundo Post of the American Legion.

FISHERS FISHING FISH Eighty-four tuna have been brought to gaff this season and sixty-nine of the fish weighed more than one hun- dred pounds. 1Jr. B. F. Alden, with two guests, all of San Francisco, stayed at the Tuna Club last week. The genial doc- tor is one of the old residents of the Islaml, and cannot resist the call when the fish are here. This time he made the trip bringing his son-in-law, Dr. R. E. Scovel, and Mr. Charles E. Sloan, hoi~ing to see them both qualify for the Tuna Club with a button fish, and it nearly came off. Mr. Sloan was the first lucky one to get on a good fish; but he unfortunately met a bad scrap- per and after a terrific fight, which lasted over an hour, Dr. Alden very reluctantly helped bring the fish in. Weight 117 pounds. The clay following his son-in-law, trained to the minute, was sicked on to a fish, and after a pretty fight of fifty minutes he had the fish up to gaff. It turned the scales at 116 pounds, and everybody was happy. Mr. Sloan, before leaving, issued a chal- lenge to all comers in the Tuna family --no weight barred. He will take up intensive training for the next scrap, and friend Doctor Alden will be on the job as advisor, etc. The party re- turned to the mainland by airship after a very enjoyable week's fishing. Mr. Hans Houmann is a guest at the Tuna Club. Mr. Houmann is from Denmark, and is touring the United States. He is deeply interested in any form of out-door sport and would like to take a tuna (luring his stay here. He also is an emturance swimmer, and takes long swims daily, as he finds the water here is excellent for distance swimming. As guests of President R. R. Thomas of the Tuna Club, Governor Richard- son and his son John left Avalon for a fishing trip Tuesday morning. The young angler was in high hopes of landing one of Catalina's big fish. They had not returned when our forms closed for this issue of the Is- larder. In all probability both the Governor and his son witl., have ex- cellent catches, as the day was calm and barracuda and mackerel were re- ported in the vicinity of Seal Rocks. Mr. C. Ahna Baker, C.B.E., London, England, fishing from the launch Sun- beam, last Friday, brought to gaff a 104 pound tuna in twenty-four minutes flat. The next day he landed another, which weighed 93 pounds. Mr. Alma Baker, before leaving the Island, hopes to take a button tuna on a nine-thread line.

GITCHEE GUMEE CAMP FIRE GIRLS' BIRTHDAY The Gitche Gumee Camp Fire Girls 'will hold their first birthday sale on Saturday, June 28th. The girls have been anticipating this sale for many weeks and spent many happy hours planning and working for it. The Avalon Camp Fire was organ- ized last year on June 28th, with Mrs. F. I. Beltcher as guardian. Although Mrs. Beltcher. was deeply interested in the work of the Camp Fire and gave them a good start, she was compelled . to leave Avalon and a new guardian was sought before the first year was out. Gitche Gumee Camp Fire feels fortu- nate in having Mrs. Stone as its pres- ent guardian. Her deep interest in the work is an inspiration to the Camp Fire Girls. Many sales and outings have been planned by Mrs. Stone for the Camp Fire, but it is hoped that the coming sale of June 28th will be the most successful of all and be gen- erously patronized by the people of Avalon. The Camp Fire means to the girls what scouting does to the boys. They are taught the duties of the household, such as cooking, sewing, care of chil- dren, personal health, care of the sick, etc. They also are taught self-reliance and how to take proper care of them- selves when out in the open. Just as the scouts learn carpentering, mechan- ics and other useful crafts needful for them later in life, so the girls of the Camp Fire learn the crafts of woman's world. The Gitehe Gumee Girls are now busily preparing a "Hope Chest," which they hope they can in the near future place in a clubhouse of their own. Many dainty things are being made by deft fingers to furnish this home of the future. But, first of all, finances must needs be raised with which to secure this home and there- fore the sale of June 28th. This is to take place at the entrance to the Greek Amphitheatre. The Camp Fire Girls will cut a gi- gantic home-made birthday cake, which will be served to patrons. Cat- alina "Speed" will be sold, as well as honae-made candy. So this week the girls of Avalon sweetly ask your in- dulgence, and that you save your pen- hies for the sale of sweets Saturday. THE ISLANDER ADLETS ADLET RATES---Ten cents per line per issue.
