There are so many things to do here for fun. Tuesday at the beautiful Casi- no for dancing; later, a moonlight drive. Last night a real Hawaiian feast --Luau--at the Isthmus.

My first day was thrilling and I'm looking forward to the wonderful trips planned for me here." Friday, August 16: Laura Spelhnan, Inglewood, Califor- nia, to Caw Spellman, Inglewood : "Having a fine time here at Catalina and enjoying the weather. Spend most of my time cooking in sunshine. Look- ing forward to the dance tonight at the beautiful Casino here." Peggy Jane DeLury of San Francisco to Mr. D. N. DeLury, San Francisco: "Jane and I are having a lovely vaca- tion. Catalina is beautiful. We have taken the Skyline Drive and have visit- ed the Bird Park. Before leaving we intend to take other interesting trips, and there are many of them here." Saturday, August 17: James R. May, Glendale, to Audrey May of Glendale: "I am enjoying the grand Catalina climate, combined with the sociability of the residents. I am having a really good time. Visited the Bird Park and took the Fly~ngfish Trip " Margaret Vallereux of South Pasa- dena, California, to Mrs. Grace Hen- derson, also of South Pasadena: "Hap- piest days I have ever had. Have seen everything I have always wanted to see. Went deep-sea fishing and caught several bass." Monday, August 19: Charlotte Pildus of Los Angeles to Miss Betty Lewin of the same city: "I am having the time of my life at Catalina.

For complete fun better make a date for Catalina soon." * -* Rea, ders of~R,~l~,-messages will ru~t.e how many different expressions are nsed descriptive of the attractions of Santa Catalina. cl TAOS, NEW MEXICO ATTRACTS Taos, New Mexico, situated a short distance north of Santa-Fe on a high mesa, captivates all tourists who go a little out of their wav to visit this art community and old lndian Pueblo, ac- cording tO the Touring Department of the National Automobile Club. Its scenic location and atmosphere of the old West have a charm that one seldom forgets. All buildings are of nmd adobe; the streets are crooked and the town boasts of no sewerage system. Indians, Mexicans and whites rub el- bows on the streets and the stores are artistic trading posts. The Taos lmeblo with its five-terraced communal dwell- ings, is the highest pueblo building in the Southwest and one of the most picturesque. In 1927, before Hitlerism, Stalinisln, and all the other 'ism's began their threatened destruction of peace and modern civilization, Jndge Westover of Los Angeles motivated by a sincere desire to place the American Flag in its" deserved place, inaugurated the "Tribute to the Flag" in his Court- room. Since that date, it has been ac- cepted as a fitting tribute to American Liberty and Justice, and the recogni- tion of the symbol of constitutional justice has been adopted by most of the courtrooms throughout the coun- try.
