CATALINA BECOMES HEADQUARTERS FOR CINEMA PERSONALITIES By Alma Overhoh Santa Catalina Island, with its many new attractions is taking the place of Agua Caliente these days as the ren- dezvous of socialite and motion pic- ture personalities. Club La Cima, that smart new night club under the stars at the Catalina Country Club, the Ho- tel St. Catherine cocktail corral, and the Descanso Gardens Terrace Buffet, are the swanky setting for sophisti- cated folk who have been seen at the southern resort. The past week both Baron Long and Joe Schenck were anchored off the St. Catherine Hotel on board their pala- tial pleasure craft. Mr. and Mrs. Long hand as their yachting guests on the Norab, Mr. and Mrs. Charlie Baad of the Hotel Biltmore, Mr. and Mrs. Moore and Mr. and Mrs. Clark. They entertained the group at dinner at the Hotel St. Catherine, where they en- joyed the tunes of Jan Garber and his lads, later adjourning to Club La Cima, where they were seen dancing and supping under the tropical pahn cano- py of the island's latest bid for the moderne. Joe Schenck had an interesting partyof personalities on board his yacht, the Invader, and was so busy showing them all the intriguing things to do and see at Santa Catalina Island that the party flitted from cocktail corral of the Hotel St. Catherine to the Casino, and on to Club La Cima, stopping enroute at the Catalina Is- land Yacht Club, without the identity of his gueests ever being fully estab- lished. Charlie Chaplin and Paulette God- dard are anchored down at White's Landing. And guess who is the most tickled star on all Santa Catalina Is- land.--Paulette! And she has a right to be. Under Charlie's tutelage she h~,s become an expert deep sea angler. This week, fishing from the little tender of her cruiser yacht, the Pana- cea, she snagged the record yellow- tail--a thirty-pound beauty! And poor Charlie got nary a bite. , , llt Betty Grable and Eric Rhodes had more fun skipping around the Casino to Jan Garber's tantalizing tunes over the week-end. In answer to Betty's pleas Jan did his beautiful violin solo, to the delight of dancing vatationists here. Adrienne Ames took a charming bungalow at the Hotel St. Catherine for the week-end, to rest up after the strain of her divorce from Bruce Cab- ot. With her was her little daughter, Barbara, who spent hours splashing in the smooth waters of Descanso Bay while Adrienne sun-tanned on the beach. Mrs. William Wellman (Dorothy Coonan) entertained her sister at the St. Catherine Hotel over the week-end, spending several happy evenings at the Country Club night club, "La Cima." Mr. and Mrs. Kent Taylor did a little angling for great game fish this last week. They were glimpsed faring forth from the St. Catherine, lugging rod and reel. * * Virginia Pine was teaching her tiny daughter to swim at the exclusive Ho- tel St. Catherine beach. She flew to the isle with Mrs. John O~Connell, for a week of rest and relaxation. Tunesmith Lou Rose is getting in- spiration this week for another song hit. Lou is spending balmy August days chasing little white pellets around the sporty golf links of the Catalina Visitors' Country Club in Avalon. ------- : O : ~ Mrs. H. Byreus is spending a couple of qceeks in Avalon. THE ISLANDER ADLETS A careful reading of these Adlets will reveal bargains that otherwise you might miss.

Wheeler, aged 50, died Sunday on board his power cruiser Siesta enroute to Balboa. Ac- cording to the reports, Dr. Wheeler and a party of friends left Avalon early Sunday morning for the main- land. Someone suggested shooting "clay pigeons" from the stern of the vessel. A~ter the gun practice Dr. Wheeler was returning the guns to the cabin when he stumbled and accident- ly discharged a gun, and a large por- tion of the discharge entered his neck and head. Dr. E. B. Glass of Los An- geles, T. A. Bradbury and O. H. E ng- blom, were on board the Siesta, but the accident was so serious that they were unable to save the Doctor's life. For several years Dr. Wheeler has been a regular visitor to Avalon and some ten years ago secured permission from the island company to select a number of Catalina goats for experi- mental purposes in endocrinology. At one time he planned to install a com- plete laboratory at Avalon for goat gland experimentation. :O: EARLY CALIFORNIA CLUB Members of this organization met Tuesday, August 6, at E1 Encanto. Miss Minnie Joughin, vice-president, presided. Minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved. The members then fell into an in- formal talk in regard to future enter- tainment. A luncheon was planned for August 27, to which the public will be invited, and it is hoped that many of the visit- ors to Santa Catalina Island will come and be entertained by some of the best speakers from the mainland. Mrs. B. O. Kendall very pleasantly filled in the remainder of the time by reading charmingly that Ca t a li n a classic, "Their Mariposa Legend," by Charlotte Herr. The book was not finished and will give pleasure for another pleasant af- ternoon. Miss Joughin then closed the meet- ing. C.D.W. :o:-- CHURCH BENEFIT PROGRAM Referring to the church benefit pro- gram printed elsewhere in this paper, Mrs. B. O. Kendall said: "The program is one that I put on for the May meeting of "The Tuesday Musicale" in Pasadena. It was so well received that I thought that having put so nmch work and time on it, I would like to use it again, with the help of local talent, and try to raise some money for the Community Congregational Church Building Fund."
