PAGE TEN THE CATALINA FISH, FISHING, FISHERMEN Braodbill swordfish to date 3. Marlin swordfish to date 2. Tuna to date, 267. Liverpool, Nova Scotia, Aug. 13, 1924. Editor Catalina Islander: Caught first tuna here by American, (~4 pounds, fight lasted six hours, Catalina boatman still great factor in success. Plenty of fish, easy to hook, but almost impossible to land my tuna. First ever caught from launch, and second largest ever caught by anyone. Regards. ZANE GREY. The marlin swordfish record for the season was pushed up a notch August 18, when Herbert Earlscliffe of the Tuna Club brought'to gaff the largest of the season, a beautiful specimen weighing 161 pounds Angler Earls- liffe was fishing from the launch Ruth, Captain Sam Goulding. Only three of this variety have been brought to gaff so far this season, although a number of the anglers have made sev- eral trips to San Clemente in search of them. Registered at the Tuna Club last week were President James W. Jump, Secretary Howard S. Dudley, H. Earls- cliffe, A. C. Brode, Co]. J. E. Stearns, F. H. Reed, H. J. /vlallen, A. R. Mar- tin, L. G. Murphy, L. P. Streeter, W. C. Bradbury, C. Alma Baker, C. B. E., E. A. Featherstone, Oscar E. Schmidt, Chas. D. Willits, D. A. Coleman, W. M. Hunt, Tom McD. Potter, W. H. Yule, Fred Latmer, R. B. Jump, Gee. H. Stoddard, H. G. Chaffee, E. R. Hoak, J. Ed Sullivan, Dr. A. B. Cook, Dr. J. A. Gaines, Mr. Brandreth, H: B. Slack, George Walker, Richard Wal- ker, Ray Dawson and Captain George Bradbury. Fishing from the launch Shorty last week, Mr. J. P. Smith of Oakland had a unique experience. He hooked an albacore on heavy tackle and fought it for ten minutes, until it was within reach of the gaff. Suddenly the fish jerked away. The angler threw off the reel drag and away went the fish. It circled. In doing so the sag of the line made a loop. The loop caught over the caudal fins of another alba- core. Result--two albacore were brot to gaff on the same line. The fish weighed twenty and twenty-one pounds, respectively, and Captain Par- ker Pence gaffed them both when the angler had reeled them to the side of the boat. For more than seven years Ralph Bandini, formerly secretary of the Catalina Tuna Club has labored to land a broadbill swordfish. To be ac- curate about the matter, Ralph stated that it is 7 years, 11 months, 23 days," 23 minutes and 23 seconds since he first got the desire to land a broadbill. And, on August 10 he landed the third broadbill of the season, Time 23 min- utes. Weight 246 pounds. Mr. Bandini was trolling from the launch Erna with his friend Andy Martin when the fish took his bait. TO say that he was "tickled" is put- ting it very mildly. As the cruiser ar- rived in Avalon bay with the sword- fish flag flying Angler Bandini was given quite an ovation. After the catch had been officialI# weighed and recorded by Manager West of the Tuna Club, Augler Ban dini was given his much coveted swordfish button. And, who do you think fastened in it the lappel of his coat ? Harry J. Mallenl who is now wearing the swordfish crown for landing a fish weighing 528 pounds. " , JUDGE YORK CANDIDATE FOR RE-ELECTION One of the most modest and at the same time able seasoned men on the Superior Court bench is Judge John M. York, who has served continuously for a full dozen years and now is a candidate to succeed himself, tie ad- mirably typifies those all-too-few and rapidly-disappearing characters who unselfishly devote t~hemseh-es to the public weal without tooting their own horns, to whom trust and dqty are the major considerations and the personal and political merely incidental. These high and refreshing traits, together with his rare judicial qualifications, conunend him for retention in his im- portant position and are cited by his friends as good and sufficient grounds for supporting him at the primaries and thereafter. courteous consideration for the rights of his fellow men." His father before him, Hen. Waldo M. York, sat for thirteen years on the Superior Court bench, and is now hand- ling the incumbent's campaign. The son inherited those excellent qualities which made the elder York stand out as a towering figure of the bench and bar. In the recent plebiscite of the 13ar Association to express the preferences o~ that body's members for the judge- ships, Judge York received the highest* number cf votes of any candidate--a noteworthy compl,:ment. The total of k.allots cast was 674. BLUE BIRDS Last Thursday, the Blue Bird group spent the afternoon learning to make pan holders and embroidery work at the home of Miss Myrtle Gibson, 336 Whittley avenue. Miss Gibson is taking charge of the Blue Birds during the absence of their leader, Mrs. George W. t;reene, in or- der to earn the rank of Torch Bearer.

Judge John M. York Judge York, who has many admirers in the Los Angeles Athletic Club au:t is a Native Son, Shrinet, Elk and Pythian Knight, is quiet, scholarly and broad' minded and has come to be widely recognized as an even-handed dispenser of justice without fear or fa- vor and a due regard for the interests of all concerned. His trials are con- ducted without pyrotechnics and his decisions hold in the higher tribuals. An inveterate worker he yet finds time for play at the outdoors which he loves. He is a devotee of yachting and Other sports and a member Of the California Yacht Club, the Tuna Club and "the Catalina Light Tackle Club. In commenting on his candidacy, Dr. Rockwell D. Hunt, dean of the Univer- sity of Southern California, struck the keynote when he said of Judge York among other things: "With his repu- tation as a capable and experienced jurist not the least of his many virtues is his quality of human kindness and The other evening a gentleman ask- ed us what those colored lights meant, on the houses up on the East Side Terrace. We replied that they repre- sented the owner's idea of the beautiful in'illumination. "That's so, they are beautiful," responded the visitor.
