PAGE TWO INTERESTING NOTES ABOUT YACHTMEN Connnodore James W. Jump of the Catalina Island Yacht Club and presi- dent of the Tuna Club, had Secretary Ed Abbott, Port Captain Bill Warm- ington, Ed Bosbyshell and Ellis Tay- lor aboard the Ranger as guests on a trip to Johnson's Landing, to partici- pate with other yachtmen at the stag cruise last week-end. On the way they called on Captain Whittell, owner of the EIia, and added to the party by having him and Col. Knowhon join them. Ed Bosybshell, family and guests, were visitors at the Catalina Island Yacht Club last week, spending sev- eral days in the bay aboard Captain BosbyshelI's schooner yacht, Scaramo- uche. Everybody in the party was highly pleased with the new yacht clubhouse and the fine landing float, which made it a matter of pleasure to come ashore. "No more landing on the beach, ruining your clothes and damaging your skiff," said Captain Bosbyshell. Mr. Fred Munsey, wife and son Edwin, have been spending sex-eral days at their residence in Avalon, and as Mr. Munsey is a member of the Yacht Club here they have greatly en- joyed spending much of their time at the clubhouse. Mr. Munsey is intend- ing to build a sea-going power cruiser this winter, as he says he can never be really happy without a good craft under his feet. The best part of it is that Mrs. Munsey and his son Ed are of the same opinion. Mr. Clare Nuener and family are spending a few days at the St. Cath- erine. Mr. Nuener is one of the old- time racing yachtmen of the Los An- geles Yacht Club, sailing the Lady Betty to many a victory. He and his family were callers at the yacht club last week, and being an old friend of the congenial secretary had a very pleasant visit. They all were very pleased with the clubhouse and fur- nishings, as well as the safe facilities to land. Mr. Carl F. Johnson, family and guests, were callers at the yacht club during the week-end, and the Myron II. looked spick and span as she came alongside the landing float with her flags flying, and the ~aces of those on board were smiling. Mr. Johnson' and family are to spend a few days in Av- alon and will cruise to the many points of interest along shore before going back to the mainland. Mr. Hal Roach and family, aboard the Gypsy, arrived last Friday and expect to remain for several days. Mr. Roach and family have recently returned from a most interesting trip to Alaska wa- ters. They had the Gypsy taken up by their crew and cruised aboard her while there, which made the trip most enjoyable and interesting. They were callers at the Catalina Island Yacht Club, Mr. Roach being a charter mem- ber, and were high in their spoken praise of the management of the club in providing such a handsome and comfortable clubhouse. In the opinion of Mr. Roach, the club will be the most popular and will have the largest number of members of any similar or- ganization on the Pacific coast in the very near future, Captain Will Meyer, owner of that very handsome and sea-going ketch, Alica A, has recently purchased the Lucky Sfrike from Alvin Frank. The Lucky Strike is a Hacker model speed boat type, can make the trip across the channel in about one and one-half hours without forcing, and can do bet- ter when opened up. Mr. Meyer is to use it for fast trips over and back, leaving the Alica A at the club's an- chorage in Avalon bay~ during his ab- sence. Mr. Meyer is a charter mem- ber of the Catalina Island Yacht Club, and in a recent talk with Secretary Abbott Wanted to know what he couhl present to the club, saying that he felt he should give something that wouhl benefit everybody. He wanted to kflow if the club would like to have the chart room furnished with nice card tables, chairs, rug, wall pictures, stand for ash trays, etc. Of course the sec- retary thought it would be fine and told Mr. Meyer so, and that's that. The chart room is to be furnished by Captain \Till Meyer. Port Captain Win. C. \Varmington of the Catalina Island Yacht Club, and Vice-Commodore of the Newport Har- bor Yacht Club, and his faufily, have been enjoying several days stay at the club's anchorage, cruising to the many points of interest around the Island. With them on board their family crus- ier Billidiek are their three sons, Will- iam, Edward and Richard, and as their guests are Dr. and Mrs. Ralph Hay- wood and daughter Mary Francis, Mr. Fletcher Lee, and Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Proctor. Captain Warmington is one of the most enthusiastic members of the Catalina Island Yacht Club, and in his opinion the club will become the most popular yacht club on the Pacific coast in the near future. With the big regatta everybody is pulling for to be held at Catalina next year he will be a busy port captain, and will welcome the hard work, for it will mean nmch to the yacht club's mem- bership and popularity. Art R. Sanger and family left for the mainland aboard their schooner Dreamer a few days ago, with much regret, having spent a very pleasant sunnner at Avalon. More than ever before, for the pleasure of being here was so much enhanced by having the yacht club to land at, and a pleasant, comfortable place for themselves and guests while ashore. Captain Sanger was one of the first to join the new yacht club and has been instrumental in securing a nun~ber of members. (Continued on Page 3, Column 2) TO A SEA-GULL By Cristel Hastings What do you see as you wing 3,our way Over the heaving seas ? And what do you ponder on, skimnting along In the arms of a freshening breeze ? Do you taste the salt of the spray as it flies Even as swiftly as you.p Does the trough of the sea seem as green to you As to me--and t'he sky as blue ? Does the way seem long when the graybacks roll Ahead in the tossing gloom ? Does your wild blood leap when the surf-line breaks On a reef with a roar and a boom ? When the spindrift flies, and the sea is a mass Of whispering, rushing foam, At dusk, when the tired sun goes down, Do you sometimes think of home ? "Keep Avalon a Spotless Town." We pledge our help!
