Wrig- ley presented the wonderful weather- vane, which is now at the top of the dome of the tower of the clubhouse; Mr. Ben R. Meyer furnished the office of the building, typewriter and all; Mr. H. G. Chaffee furnished the crew's quarters, etc.; Mrs. L. P. Streeter furnished the Powder Puff Room with mirrors, one of full length, chairs, etc.; Dr. Albert Soiland, Admiral of the Pacific Coast Yachting Association and owner and skipper of Auxilliary Schooner Viking llI, with Dr. George H. Laubersheimer, owner and skipper of the yawl Ortona, supplied a six-foot ships wheel for the bridge deck in the assembly room; and Mr. George Whittell gave that fine telescope de- scribed in the fore part of this article. The foregoing goes to demonstrate what a live bunch there is in this baby yacht club, and from all accounts the end is not in sight, even with the use of Mr. Whittell's telescope, according to Secretary Abbott. "IN ALL THE WORLD NO TRIP LIKE THIS" By Burton L. Smith True indeed is the advertising line, "In all the world no trip like this." From the minute one leaves Wilming- ton is the fact impressed that the in- ventor of this phrase was moved by a desire to tell the truth. Where, for instance, can you find a ferry boat that is made into a sea-going liner, with all the safety service and conveniences that you find on the Catalina ? Where is the despised little jitney bus trans- formed into what we learned about in our novel-reading days as a tally-ho? And then where, oh, where, can be fouqd a resort hotel that by its com- forts and service competes with the best of them which are catering to the wants of the traveling public away from fishing" grounds and deep sea bathing? There is no trip like this in the world because the Santa Catalina Is- /and Company has called into its ser- vice a group of men who are trained in their particular line and who make it a twenty-four-hour job to give the visitor value received, and create an impression that, like the flavor of Spearmint, brings the customer back again. Catalina makes a partner of Mother Nature and dresses to meet the occa- sion. In broad daylight the bay, the boats, the homes and business places present the brightness and cleanliness of a Holland village, and in the night the lights and soft shadows blend to bring fairyland to our door. The days are perfect, the nights are wonderful. Band concerts are not disturbed by the honk of automobile horns, and every street crossing is safe without the service of a trafic cop--"In all the world no trip like this."

The Pacific Electric ball team will be with us Sunday. They have many new players and it looks like the Cubs will have to do some fast playing to beat them this time.

Magazines Newspapers Sfationery Windle's News-Stand, Opposite Boos Brae: FROM BAND PROGRAM Mrs. Moore, Mrs. Melhorn, Mrs. Beardsley and Mrs. Plimpton, the wives of four members of the band, are going to Los Angeles for a few days. Their husbands are supposed to keep the cottages in order, and cook their own meals during their abscense. Past ex- periences of housekeeping husbands are pretty sad. They generally wash the dishes with the garden hose, let the fur collect quietly un- der the beds; cooking is confined to "Air tights ;" shoes will be found in the best room; shaving apparatus where the lip stick and powder puff formerly laid c6yly, etc., etc. It takes at least two days to bring the house back to its normal condition after letting the husband take the helm. It is not our desire to act the part of a kill-joy, but duty forces us to tell the truth. presence of so many ladies with their gay dresses, the children and grandchildren, with that expectant and merry twinkle in their eyes, made a scene that Father Laietsky will remember for a long time. A cake large enough for the right number of candles was presented, a box of cigars, furnished by the ladies (but not bought by them-- for they generally get varnished ones) was included in the presen- tation. Ice cream was served. All the ladies present tried to appear as if ice cream was for children; but it was noticed that they ate all they had in their plates. Mrs. Laietsky (Mother Laietsky), was present and enjoyed the event. We .haven't said much about Mrs. Laietsky be- cause birth days are forbidden sub- jects with the ladies t Pictures were taken of the whole party, and a separate one of Father Laietsky and his cake. D. Gilson played one of his com- positions for a flute solo at Sunday evening's concert. "My impressions of the Magic Isle" he has named it. It depicts the sensations one feels in this quiet, beauti.ful Island from the ideal view. It is a beautiful thought, well done, well played~ another bright spot in the career of the Catalina band. In the closing number on last Sunday, "Rocked in the Cradle of the Deep" was played as a para- phrase. In one moment a storm is supposed to take place on this same "Deep." Manager Porter took the "Wind" and the "Rain" as his de- partment. He did it to the queen's taste. We don't remember of hear- ing better rain or better wind-- even from Dame Nature. The Santa Catalina Island Com- pany thoughtfully built thirty bun- galettes, divided by two streets, near Wrigley Field, for the exclu- sive use of the members of its band. In this, their own village, as it were, these musicians have the social ac- tivities that go with modern human enjoyments. One of these social functions wag gotten up on Wed- nesday, the 30th instant, by Ben Laietsky, the leader of the Pavilion orchestra, as a surprise and remin- der to his father (who is spending the summer with his son), that the sixty-fifth summer is to be added to his score. The father had been sent down town on some pretext, and a surprise was arranged with the help of the ladies. They some- way always add the refinement and finishing touches. So when papa came home he found to his surprise about thirty ladies and children, in- eluding his wife, two sons, a dau- ghter, a son-in-law and two grand- children, gathered on a platform near his son's (Ben) cottage. The Airs. Smythe, wife of the tuba player of the band, is a lady of many accomplishments. She is a good swimmer, a good dancer, and wears the shortest bathing suit on the island, etc. She undoubtedly has many other good traits, but those are not in the province of a news- paper correspondent. This we know, and we say it aloud, she is the queen of waffle mixers! We have sampled them. We speak of them in the plural, for we had several, and would have asked for more but we wished to appear modest.
