MORE VISITORS COMING TO AVALON EACH YEAR Last week-end plainly indicated to the old-timer that the population of Avalon was increasing. "The third week .in August has always been the biggest business week of the year," said one of the Avalon merchants. "The records of the transportation company will substantiate that fact. "But, in addition to the thousands of passengers that have been brought here over the regular lines, there have been more private boats, cruisers and yachts in Avalon bay during the past week than I have ever seen before.

Try this experiment: Place the left hand on the corner of a table. Now have some one move the table a few inches. What happens ? You are off balance. Trying to walk with a cane or a crutch on the side that is injured is an action similar to that of moving the table with the left foot off the ground. An adult, learning to use crutches, balances the body on the good leg, and where one crutch is used the movement of walking is done from the side of the body offer- ing the least resistance to the law of gravitation. ;When one foot is entirely off the ground, the average person finds two crutches necessary. Those who use crutches regularly seldom permit the arm of the crutch to stop the blood circulation in the arm. The weight of the body is carried on the good leg and with the crutches at the hand grip. Many persons who use canes and crutches as an aid to walking, often cause themselves considerable grief by not Studying their movements and point of balance.

"We have just distributed thousands of these maps throughout the East", said T. C. Peck, General Passenger Agent. "This was done as a part of the Union Pacific's comprehensive campaign to induce tourist traffic to Southern California. We exffect this new map to become very popular, not only in the East, but with Southern California people and especially with the schools and student bodies". The new map is for free distribution and may be obtained from any office or agent of the Union Pacific or will be mailed by Mr. Peek to any one requesting same. ZANE GREY TO HAVE YACHT OF HIS OWN Zane Grey, novelist, who had been tuna fishing in Nova Scotia waters, has purchased the three-arrested schooner Mapleland, and will take it to New York, where it will be transformed into a yacht, says a Nova Scotia telegram. When the transformation has been completed, the author and his party will cruise to South America. Advertise your needs in The Catalina Islander. Catalina--"in all the world no trip like this."
