The blaze started in a trash box at the rear of one of the dormitory build- ings in Parker Court, partially t)nrned the outside stairway to the second story, and then leaped to the roof al the gable end of the btfi!din.u. The alarm was tnrned in by Mrs. glo,'cnce fiarrison of 2116 t'eacon street. ()he .f the first nlen to the fir,: was Con- stable Moricich. Moricich rushed into the bnihling aim ~ith a small hose co,nmenced to fi~ht the ilames. Then Engineer C. E. Sullivan and his fire- engine team started operations, attd al- most before the noise of the City Hall siren had died away, the rice fighters were potwing a big stream of water on the flame. The damage ~sas e>ti- mated at $I,000. DIFFIN'S CATALINA CUBS Steube and Payne in Great Pitching Battle.

THE CATALINA 19LANDER Subscribe now---$Z.00 per year, BAND CAMP MUSINGS By Bert Colvillc Strolling toward the ball ground, we ran up against Rudy Wiedoeft, "The Anterican saxophone wizard," who with his wife, is spending the present season at Avalon--resting np after a strenuous round of pro- fcssional engagenlents. Rudy has selected Avahm, nt~t only as art ideal place to spend the snnmler, but to get at, mosphcre for his new nmsical compositi,ms which he is at present engaged np,.nl. LiB- doubtedly many of the Islanders have Victor or Columbia records of this gifted yonng saxophone player's artistic renditions, which are in circuhttion the wide ~orhl o~w,'. Rudy played i,t "Little Charlic's" Catalina Band four seasous. The soloist at last Saturday even- ing's concert, was Alidor J. Ilelln'ez, who gave a very crisp axtd sparkling rend/don of Paris Chambers com- positi,m, "The Conunodore," on the trumpet, and acknowledged applause for the same with an enco~c, "A Perfect l)ay." This artist is a grad- uate of the "Ghent" (Belgian) Con- servatoire of Mnsic. Musicians love pets, A conp[e of dogs, a few cats, attd sonic canary birds, was the extent of our ntenag- erie till recently. Now it appears that little Lylc Y, loore, son of our cornetist, is ambitious to become a "bullfrog" raiser. Under (!eel)shade, in miniature oil drums, we fimI va- rions l,ollywogs in ([ifferent stages of. develolmmnt,, cutting up all kinds ot aquatic atmcs. We hope Lyle will succeed as a frog merchant! Brother D. V. Seber, our indefat- igueable snappy snare drmnmer, having slxent no less than eight con- secutive yearly vacations on the "lsle with a smile," became so en- au~olc,d with its beauty that he took the ,,plmrtunity, and b.cco, ne "eric uf ttS" this St'aSOl]. Having becoute acquainted with the acoustic properties which our "fairyland" is noted for, he invest- ed il'l the latest model snarc-drnnl, " f~}r the engagement--litt!e knowing the affinity or sympathy that existed between his new acquisition att([ th.e French horn. It was during the playing of Titl's bcantiful serenade for horn aml flute the other eveniug, that this affinity became app;~r(ent. Brother Seber had left the bandstand to hear Th,:odore Berth attd Desire (;ilson play this duet froth a dis- tance, little knowing of said musi- cal sympathies of the newly acquir- ed drum, till the snares thereof eom- in,ence(l to vibrate a ntotlrnfttl tatoo at intervals during the rendition of Titl's COml~osition. X'\'e don't know who suffered ntost, Mr. Gilson, or Berth, but by the anguish on Theodore's face, we imagine h.e did. Some drum! And, by thee way, brother Seber is some drummer! Watch him, folks. "Little Charlie's band comes over radio grand," is what we read re- cently in a letter from San Joaquin Valley friends. \Vish we could also send them a little of our cooling breezes, attd ozotm! They sweher in the San Joaquin at this time of year.We're lucky, folks!
