It is a little different with a weekly colum- nist. Other workers may quit when the whistle blows and be off for the relaxing pleasures of evening.

I am, however, among the for- tunates who can go where they please, and when they please. All that is re- quired is that my column shall be re- ceived on time and be of interest to readers. Sounds rather a cinch. The dead-line hangs as a dangling sword! Always there is the dread of writing something that has been written be- fore and better; the fear of innocent offence, and the horror of making those seemingly inexcusable blunders --which are well-nigh impossible to avoid when one is writing at top speed Thoughts are the turmoil of every ine, it was discovered that there were a number of Rotarians from mainland points present, together with several member guests, as follows: Rotarians -- Walter D.

As the weeks go by the writer fre- quently hears members say that the Rotary Club is one of the best organ- izations ever established on Santa Catalina Island, and that they receive much personal help from it and the programs presented by it. HAWAIIANS IN AVALON Catalina had noted visitors from Hawaii over the 4th of July holidays. Johnny Noble, noted song-writer of such hits as "Little Grass Shack", "My Tani", and many others, and whose fame is equal to the charm of Hawaii, chaperoned 18 fair Hawaiian maidens making their FIRST voyage to the great mainland shores. The Honolulu Girls Glee Club checked in the Hotel St. Catherine Friday, July 1st and remained four nights. They kindly entertained the guests with folk dances and songs; their native costumes harmonizing nicely with Catalina Island's senn- tropical surroundings. They were amazed with the beauty of our Island which reminded them so vividly of their homeland, they stated. The Casino was a source of wonder- ment and enthusiastic voices acclaimed "beautiful"--"the finest ballroom we've ever seen". Traveling this continent, they will make several "movies" for Hollywood companies.
