NONAGENARIAN VISITS CATALINA AFTER 30 YEARS In the summer of .1910 a young fel- low of just sixty-one visited "The Isle with a Smile" and carried away with him the memory of the magic land in the Pacific to his home in Colorado. Now retired, this "young chap", Mr. C. M. Hopson, again paid us a call to exclaim over the marvelous improve- ments and to bask in Avalon's tropi- cal atmosphere. Mr. Hopson was born July 1849 in New York, and at the age of four years his family decided to get out where there was more room for a growing boy to move around in, so they settled in the frontier country in Minnesota. This boy witnessed the punishment of hanging imposed on his Sioux Indian friends for taking part in the Spirit Lake and New Ulm massa- cres. Later years he spent taking log rafts down the Mississippi to St. Louis and also corn to Natchez. Finally, he set- tled in the state of Colorado, where for many years he farmed. Mr. Hopson now lives in Bakers- field and leads an active life traveling with his son on various business trips throughout the state. He was accom- panied to Avalon by his daughter-in- law; Mrs. C. P. Hopson. o- Tourists and visitors from every State in the Union and the hundreds of thousands of Californians who came here from other parts of the country, are asked to reserve Satur- day, September 7, for their attendance at the great second annual All-States picnicm Recreation Park, Long Beach. Coming as it does at a time when many vacationers from other States are in California, the all-day gathering will afford a pleasant means of bringing old friends together. Chair- man Jerry Steelsmith announces coffee for the mid-day basket luncheon wilt be available on the grounds. Owing to last minute rush we are compelled to hold over the Playground Notes, both of the High School and Playground Park, until next week. Sorry. John R. Todd, who has been spend- ing some time on the mainland, re- turned to Avalon on Friday. Says he expects to stay home for a while. Mr. and Mrs. Rolfe E.
