Mr. and Mrs. Alva Baynes, William and Charles, and Mrs. Baynes mother, Mrs. Evaline Jackson, all of Omaha, Neb., were the guests of Mr. and Mrs. W. M. Hunt of Descanso street, the past week. Mrs. Hunt and Mrs. Baynes were schoolgirl friends from the grade school through college, and have always kept in touch although they have never seen each other since their college days. After showing their guests around Los Angeles and the many beaches, Mrs. Hunt brought them to Avalon, where they enjoyed the ninny novel sights before leaving for their home on Thursday morning. Pebbly Beach was the scene of a jolly weinie bake Wednesday evening, when Charles Hunt entertained in celebration of his twelfth birthday. As a final finish to the splendid pic- nic lunch, a beamiful birthday cake was brought forward and served. Those enjoying the party were Glenn Hoover, Katherine McKay, Helen McKelvey, Betty Trout, Maxine Dearden, Ann Coleman, Evelyn Wright, Charles and William Baynes, George McKelvey, Arthur Goulding, Edith Hunt, Jimmy Hunt, Mr. and Mrs. Alva Baynes, Mrs. Evaline Jackson, Mrs. Albert Wright, Mrs. Alice Dearden, Mrs. A. A. Powell, Mrs. W. M. Hunt and the young host. "Keep Avalon a Spotless Town." We pledge our help! Mrs. J. C. Wallace and daughters Ruth and Carla, who have been visit- ing the family of C. H. Smith, returned to their Ocean Park home yesterday. They were accompanied by Truxton Ross, who will make his home there for the present, Mrs. Wallace being his aunt. "Jack" Merkley of Wihnington, he of the genial smile, and who was a former mayor of Avalon, was in town last week giving it the "once over." He is still interested in his former Is- land home, and says he had a fine time meeting old friends and admiring the changes that have made the Island more beautiful than ever. He reports the family all well, and says he would rather spend a week on Catalina than two weeks at any mainland beach. Come again friend. Mrs. J. B. Norton proved a most charming hostess last week when, on Tuesday afternoon, assisted by Mrs. J. O. McDonald of Long Beach and Mrs. H. T. Dunning of Huntington Beach, she entertained the following ladies at bridge at her residence on Catalina avenue: Mrs. Clara Laurance, Mrs. Clarence Bunnelle, Mrs. W. V. Heiss, Mrs. Charles Patrick, Mrs. MeHenry Mosier, Miss Florence Hill, Mrs. W. H. Mead, Mrs. George Brock, Mrs. Chaffee, Mrs. Albert Handley, Miss Mirabelle Miller, Miss Sloeum and Mrs. J. W. Enderle. A most charming affair was given recently by Mrs. Virginia Moore, in celebration of her birthday. Using the private dining room at the Boos Bros. cafeteria, the guests were seated at a prettily appointed table, which held a beautifully decorated birthday cake. Following the serving of the dinner, the guests repaired to the cottage of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Dearden on Des- canso street, where the evening was spent in playing mah jongg. Those present were Mr. and Mrs. Audrey Gross, Mr. and Mrs. Pryor Moore, Mrs. Alice Dearden, Mrs. Elyman Thayer, Mr. A. G. Garner Miss Mar- garet Hiller, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Dear- den, Richard Dearden and Bobby Moore. BIG FISH READY Taxidermist Mrs. C. B. Parker, wife of the late C. B. Parker, who mounted the record broadbill swordfish caught by Harry J. Mallen, 528 pounds, has finished the giant fish and the speci- men will be hung on the wall of the Tuna Club during the coming week. "It's almost as big as the side of a house!" exclaimed one of the Tuna Club members as he examined the specimen Tuesday morning. "Mrs. Parker has done a very workmanlike job in making the fish look real. The natural colorings of the specimenhave been preserved with remarkable skill." A PATRIOTIC'CITIZEN Sylvester Weaver, former president of the Los Angeles Chamber of Com- merce, who is spending a fortnight at the St. Catherine, accompanied by his family, set a good example on primary election day, when he returned to Los Angeles to cast his vote. Mr. and- Mrs Weaver went over on the morn- ing boat, returning at seven in the evening, their four children remaining on the Island. This is a good exam- ple of American citizenship. The charter of American liberty is only safe as long as its .privileges are ap- preciated. Vote every time. PAGE SEVEN Dr. Crandall has been entertaining a party of relatives, including his mo- ther, Mrs. C. A. Crandall; his brother, Howard Crandall, and nephew, Leslie; and Mrs. Crandall's mother and father~ Mr. and Mrs. S. Kuschner. The Bandbox Theatre changed man- agement Sunday. Eddie Fleming, for- merly stage manager of the Dome Theatre at Ocean Park, is now in charge. His talent will come from the West Coast Booking Agency. There will be two shows nightly, at 8 and 9 o'clock. For this week he has book- ed Lillian DeLille, prima donna so- prano; the King Sisters (protegees of the Duncan Sisters); Mat Wills (bro- ther of Nate Wills) as a tramp com- edian, and the Aloah Trio, in Hawaiian melodies. Change of bill twice a week. "Bill" Quinn, general manager of the United Theatres, was in Avalon again last week, accompanied by L. F. Klein, technical director of the same concern, The latter's special business is to look after the stage effects, pro- logues, etc., for the successful exploita- tion of good pictures. The Strand Theatre in Avalon, asmost of our readers know, is under the United's control. Mr. Quinn advises us that a contract has been closed with the Metro-Goodwifi Corporation for their new productions, such as "Yolanda," which opened at the California in Los Angeles on Saturday, and which will be shown in Avalon early this month, Other pictures coming soon are "Pleasure Mad," "The Bad Man,'~ "Broken Barriers," "Revelation," "The Great Divide," Jackie Coogan in "The Rag Man," "Merry Widow," and the picturization of Gene Stratton Porter's great story,"A Girl of the Limberlost." The latter will be of double interest now that Mrs. Porter has her summer home in Avalon. See the program for the coming week, on page eleven.
