Scorekeeper, A. W. MeDowell. BOOTS and BINGLES Walter Carlisle is playing in his old- time form. Remember when Walter was the sweetest outfielder that ever donned a pair of spikes in the Pacific Coast League ? Pfahler continues his sterling work around the keystone sack. He pulled Kenny out of several tight places by spearing difficult chances with the bases occupied. Even though he was only credited with one base hit, Fred was on the sacks four times; hence a ball player's ability is not always judged by the box scores. Chock Cunningham rathe up with a beautiful stop over second base, and by a lightning throw to first beat the batter by a step. Kid shnnp has seemed to have Bill Doran apd Chuck Cunningham down; bnt let us hope they will save all their base hits for the Glendale \Vhite Sex series. The Glendale club has hung up a record for consecutive wins. To date they have won the last twenty con- tests, and if the Cubs stop them on the fifth and sixth of July what a slit- prise the bail fans of Avalon will ex- perience. HAVE PEST OF CATERPILLARS Myriads of the Insects Strip Trees in Bohemia--Peasants Carry Um- brellas in Woods. Oscar John, a New York musician who returned recently from Czecho- Slovakia, sMd thtit the great f.rests of mwthern Bohemia were being do atroyed I)y a caterpillar pest, accord- Ing to the New York Times. "The ear,.'rpillars in northern Bohe- mia," saia Mr. Job(l, "originate in myriads fr~)n the black butterfly called the nonne, or nun in English, wifieh lays its egg~ on the ground in the for- ests. Dirsctly these insects are hatched they swarm up tim trees, sap- ping its life as they elhnh up the trunk by eating all the green shoots and leaves, "On reaching the top the caterpil- lars swing by theh" own saliva across to the next tree and destroy it as they go down to the ground. .Millions of these crawling pests make a miss when they are doing the aerial trapeze aet and fall to tile ground so thickly thnJt it Is .lust like rain. "Peasants walking through these (lense forest~ have to eanry great cot- ton umbrella to prevent themselves from being gtnothered by the cater- pillars, There are no picnics under the trees, because a soup basin would be filled up before there would be a chance to eat the conten.ts. "The only thin~, that can be done with the trees after the cttterplllars have finished with them is to cut down the dead trnnks and saw them up into logs for fi:rewood. "It gives one an uncanny feeling to walk through the great dark forests of northern Bohemia and hear the gloomy croak of the bnzzgloak from the lofty branches of the trees and the pitter-patter of the caterpillar vain on the hlg umbrellas carried by the peas- ants." Canada's Urban Population. The population of Canada is about equally divided between city dwellers and country dwellers. The total urban populatidn is given as 4,352,773 and the total rural population 4,435,710. In Trlnce Edward Island and Sas- katchewan the rural population rues about 75 per cent of the whole. WHO'S WHO IN AVALON By "Nick" f (Editor Note--Under this head- ing the Catalina Islander has asked Captain Harry E. Nichols to write a series of historical articles giving short sketches of the lives of some of the old time residents of Avalon. Captain Nichols is more familarly known as " 'Nick' the Boatman." JULIAN ARCE Mr. Julian Arce was born in Lower California, of Spanish parents, in the 3,ear 1848, and is now 76 years of age. When at the age of 7 years his family moved to California, then by ox team to I,os Angeles, which was then graz- ing ground for herds of thousands of cattle, At the age of 15 he made the trip to Catalina Island in a 16-foot sailing- boat. there being no large vessels />ly- ing between this and other ports. He is, as far as can be learned, the earli- est visitor (now living') to the Island. having lan(led here in the year 1863. He remained on the Island several years, and it was during this time that there were about 300 soldiers station- ed at the government barracks at the lstbmus. There were also about the same number of ininers here prosl)ect- lug for gold. The Island at that time was owned by the Lick Estate of San Francisco. He was well acquainted with Mr. Bushae, a Canadian, who mined for years at the west end of the island, and who mysteriously disappeared yeras ago, leaving his cabin and all intact. After living on the Island for several years, Mr. Arce took leave and be- came engaged in seal hnnting, going to Canada, Bearing sea and other big hunting grounds, where he and four others killed 4300 seals in one season. The furs and oil advanced in price up to the year 1882, and the percentage of the kill was very large and gave them all a'fair start in life. Mr. Arce returned to the Island 24 years ago, and has been a permanent resident ever since. He took up boat- ing as an occupation and has con- tinued with his glass-bottom rowboats up to the present time. t WELSH COMING OVER Pasadena, Calif., June 20th, 1924. Editor Catalina Islander: Queer things happen. Here in your late issues you have dipieted Col. C. M. Leighton, the famous fly and bait caster, well known to the fresh water anglers. He sure knows tackle, and how to use it. I am enclosing a slip telling his deeds with the Joe Welsh leaders, which says much, coming front such a man. Hope to see you soon, as I have to catch a big tuna this season. Yours truly, JOE WELSH.
