J. Mullaney in the Compton Tri- burte. Anyway, the party visiting the west end of the Magic Isle had a good tinme. Below follows Mr. Mullancy's account of their outing: "The real estate business at Cutup- ton yesterday was at a standstill. If there were any prospects in town for houses and lots they simply had to go out and find their own bargains. "At 7 a. m. twenty-three of Comp- ton's realty brokers and salesmen had assembled in front of George Nyga- ard's office, and betraying their usual optimism, every man carried a brand- new 100-pound sugar sack, and ar- rangments had been made f6r Zim- merman, the photographer to be at the munisipal pier at Long Beach in the evening to take photos of the catch of the day. Embark on the "Music" At 8:30 a. m. the entire party em- barked at Long Beach on the Music, the pride of the local fishering fleet, which had been chartered for the day, and "proceeded to the tuna banks off the south end of Catalina Island. En route a whale is sighted, causing some consternation at first, among those on board as it is thought that he may have designs on the party, but all fears were aleviated by W. H. Craig's ex- planation that it is one of Bill Wrig- ley's pet whales kept in his submarine gardens for the delectation of the tourists. Johnson Nabs First One "D. W. Johnson started the ball rol- ling by catching the first fish after which the albacore began biting, and it was necessary to stop the boat sud- denly at frequent intervals while some member of the party entered into bat- tie with an albacore weighing from fif- teen to twenty-two pounds, to decide whether the fish came aboard or be- came the possessor of a choice piece of fishing tackle as a souvenir of his first introduction to a member of the Real Estate Association of California. "To George Nygaard went .the honor of catching the first and largest tuna of the day, weighing twenty-seven pounds and at 3:00 p. m. there were twenty-three fine albacore weighing from eight to twenty-five pounds and three tuna, averaging twenty-six pounds, lying in the live box aboard the Music. Rex Le Masters had an exciting bat- tle with a fine specimen of bluefin tuna, but it succeeded in eventually winning the argument. Loses "Biggest" One "W. T. Fisher hooked a live one which is reputed to possibly be the largest one of the clay, and if he had used as much deplomacy as he would use in closing a deal he might have landed him, but Bill got a little abrupt and forgot that he had a reel on his ture store, electricians, dry goods stores, curio stores, photographers, fish market, confectionery stands, news stands, etc. Three church organizations--Congre- gational, Christian Science and Catholic.

Many groves of beautiful lilac trees (tree myrtle) beautify the hillsides and canyon slopes in the Splendid glass-bottomed boats through which to see the submarine gardens and sea life through crystal clear water. pole, so the tuna or swordfish, or what ever it was got away. "A. T. Dandurand distinguished him- self with two nice catches, but some of the boys contended that if he had kept quieter they would have caught more fish. The Log of the Music "3:30 p. m., homeward bound, with a strong run of whitecaps on the water. Rex Le Masters has succumed to the lilt of the Music, and is draped over the side of the boat, looking for more albicore. "4 p. m., Rex rapidly getting weaker, afraid he may die. "5 p. m., afraid he may not. "6 p. m., at anchor once more and Photographer Zimmerman present to take pictures of the largest day's catch that had come in on the boat for the season. "The end of a perfect day, sunburn, big appetites, and soreness in many muscles, not frequently used in the real estate business, and a firm resolve to do it again in the near future. And as for verification of results alleged, look at the picture above, and in the real estate windows in the future. "Society Notes: W. T. Fisher and W. H. Craig wore colored glasses. "Causalties: D. W. Johnson's hat and Rex Le Master's dinner. "Realtors who went on the trip were A. E. Dandurand, W. H. Craig, E. J. Adams, C. V. Warren, J. J. Mullaney, R. L.
