FLEMING IS ONE OF THE NATIVE SONS Judge John L. Fleming, now presid- ing in Department Nine of the Super- ior Court, is the only judge on the superior bench who was born in Los Angeles county, Downey being his birthplace forty-seven years ago, when Los Angeles contained less than 10,000 inhabitants. His father, John P. Flem- ing, now living in East Hollywood, af- fectionately known to the old-timers as "Pat," was a substantial resident and for many years was active in civic and political life. His brother, David P. Fleming, was for a long time an offi- cial of the Banning Company and is now secretary of the Santa Catalina Island Company. Judge Fleming passed his ear!y days on the farm of his father near Down- ey, ranching while obtaining his edu- cation. At twenty he married while reading law in the offices of the late Judge James C. Rives and Curtis D. Wilbur, who is now Secretary of the Navy. He was admitted to the bar in 1900 and practiced his profession in Los Angeles until appointed by Gove'r- nor Richardson to fill a vacancy on the Superior Court bench last summer. Endorsement of Judge Fleming's candidacy has been given by hundreds of attorneys, business men and women and tradesmen. Many fraternal and civic organizations have backed his candidacy and hundreds of letters ha~,e assured him support. Judge Fleming's fraternal affiliations are: Ramona Par- lor, Native Sons; Past Royal Patron, Ramona Court O. of A.; Hollenbeck Lodge, F. & A. M.; Eastgate Chapter Royal Arch Masons; Past Patron Hol- lenbeck Chapter O. of E. S.; AI Borak q'emple No. 75, D. O. K. K.; Pacific Lodge K. of P.; B. P. O. E., No. 99; Los Angeles Aerie No. 102, Eagles; Masonic Club, Jonathan Club, Opti- mists Club, Lions Club, California Country Club, Almont Country Club, and Malibou Lake Club. July was the busiest month ever known in the Avalon public library. The books issued numbered 1830, which is over 500 more than ever be- fore issued during a single month. There were also over 250 signed ap- plications turned in during the month. Avalon is growing. Pasadena home. GET YOUR HELP HERE "So many persons have interviewed us regarding employment on the Is- land in the past few weeks, and se~'eral property owners have asked our as- sistance in securing adequate help, that we have decided to start an employ- ment department in our office," said Dr E. W. Minney the other day. He stated further that to his know- ledge there was no headquarters in Avalon for any one to register for the different kinds of employment on the Island, and he understood that it was necessary to acquire help through the employment agencies in Los Angeles and elsewhere. "Feeling it might be an accommoda- tion to those seeking employment and those desiring help," Dr. Minney con- tintied, "we have established a register in our office, 124 Sumner avenue, Ava- lon, telephone 121. Any service we can render will be freely given without charge to either party." (Editor's Note~The Catalina Islan- der will be pleased to assist Mr. Min- hey in organizing an employment bu- reau in Avalon. Persons who are an- xious to work in Avalon and who real- ize that they are working in a pleasure resort, prove themselves to be very valuable employees. However, the av- erage merchant or employer in Avalon has little sympathy for those who want "light work" and heavy pay. Like merchants of all pleasure re- sorts, Avalon business men find quite a number of persons applying for jobs who never know when to start to work, but who seldom forget when they think it is time to quit. Most of the local merchants have had the same clerks year after year. Efficient and trustworthy employees make good citizens. Every town wants good cit- izens. The Catalina Islander will gladly co-operate with Mr. Minney, and we trust that any employer need- ing additional assistance will look over the local list of applications before sending to the mainland). A dispatch from Asbury Park, N. J., tells of the capture of a tuna there weighing 900pounds and measuring caught there. It was taken in a net ten feet in length--the largest ever about a mile off-shore, and in the same net was another tuna which weighed 500 pounds. Some tuna!

RECORD MADE IN SARDINE PACK Sandina pilchardus, the high sound- ing name of the lowly sardine, which is made into a most acceptable viand by preserving in oil, is lastly becoming a major product of the fish and sea food canneries of Wilmington, San Pe- dro and Long Beach according to a recent survey made by the California Fish and Game Comnfission. The sardine pack in this vicinity for the 1924 season amounted to 700,438 pounds, the survey discloses, and re- presents a considerable increase over previous years, Government experts consider the supply is practically inex- haustible here and even larger packs are anticipated. (Wilmington Journal) San Francisco, Monterey and San Diego are other centers of the sardine packing industry in this state which has an annual value of $15,000,000, ac- cording to the survey.
