CATAL/NA'S MAIDEN VOYAGE ACROSS CHANNEL (Continued from Page 1, Column 3) All along the pier the near by beach and Crescent avenue residents throng- ed to catch a glimpse of the new steamship. The Avalon Troop of Boy Scouts of America stood at attention while the passengers filed down the gang plank and headed for the special hmcheon at the Hotel St. Catherine. The Catalina was built by the Los Angeles Shipbuilding Company for a consideration said to be in excess of $1.000,00fk It is of steel construction and is 300 feet long, 50 feet in beam and draws twenty-one feet of water. One of the features that marked rite craft as being superior to the other vessels of the Wrigley fleet was the stowing of twenty, patented lifeboats on the main deck. Each lifeboat has a capacity of seventy-six persons, and each can be launched more easily and safely than those of other steamers on the upper deck, builders said. Ten passenger staterooms aft, large saloons and completely glass-enclosed saloon deck with acconunodations for dancing are other attractions on the new steamer. Two triple expansion engines, devel- oping 4000-horsepower, are calculated to drive the Catalina through the wa- ter at a standard speed of sixteen knots an hour. The regular running time between the harbor and the Is- land will be one and one-half hours, a large decrease over the running titne of the other Wrigley stea'ners. A shipbuilding record for the local port was established by the Los An- geles Shipbuilding Company in con- structing the Catalina. Four months" and one week after the keel laying ceremonies, the hull was launched. When the contract was let and the keel laid, December 26th, 1923, the time for delivery was set for July Ist, in order that the new liner might be in shape to handle the large holiday crowds. The vessel has been complet- ed and delivered to William Wrigley, Jr., one day ahead of schedule. L. E. Caverly, chief engineer of the Los Angeles Shipbuilding Company de- signed the craft and superintended the constrttction. .NOTES MADE ON THE TRIP As the Catalina left the Terminal at ~vVihnington, the new vessel was ac- companied to thebreakwater by the tugs David M. Renton and the David P. Fleming. The vessel traveled out of the harbor under its own power. The Pacific Marine Airways flying boat passed over the Catalina in nfid- channel A steam shovel working near the San Pedro library blew four whistles. Punch, cigars and chewing gum were passed around by the cabin boys. Harry Allen wore a new uniform. Mayor Reyes told the writer that he had lost his wife. Said he had been looking for her for a half hour. No wonder, it's a big ship! We checked our daughter. "Three decks, approximately 275 feet long[ Well, it took us an hour to make the circuit of all decks, and to poke our nose into the engine room. The ball room is on the second deck, aft. A number of the young folks were dancing their way to Catalina. Prexy Patrick is a happy man. We just heard him say: "This is one of the happiest days of my life." We noted that Steve Brode forgot all about the Los Angeles Soap Coat- pany while he was on board the new steantship. Judge John M. York assisted Mr. Renton on the reception committee. Someone asked Prexy Patrick: who had been nominated on the dentocratic ticket, and Mr. Patrick replied that he had been so busy with the new boat that he had forgotten all about the democratic nominees. The Catalina tnade the trip in two hours, flat. The new Catalina Island Yacht Club and the Tuna Club buildings were all decorated for the occasion. Three little Avalon girls presented Prexy Patrick with a beautiful boquet of flowers when he stepped ~ff the gangplank. Boos Bros's sent a ten foot floral design depicting, in miniature, the Catalina. it was an artistic creation of flowers. Jimmy Jump, vice-president of the Tuna Club, gave up his day's fishing trip to take a ride on th,: new steamer. The management at the Hotel St. Catherine had everything in readiness for the visitors when they reached that famous hostelry. The luncheon was a big success, and the visitors returned to the mainland at 3:15 p. m., happy, contented anti appreciative of what the new ship means in the plan of pro- gress for the Island and its residents. "Well," said one Avalonite, "we've got the ~:ater from Middle Ranch and the new steamship Catalina, what's next on the program? Avalon is for- tunate in having a rich dad !"
