I Charles R. Ramsey, vice-connnodore of the Catalina Island Yacht Club, ar- rived with his family anti guests aboard his yacht Ramses for the week end and a visit to his club. Connno- (tore Ramsey and family are to cruise around the Island, stopping at the many beautiful coves for-a week or longer, as the fancy strikes them. Mr. C. E. Wilson and family were enjoying their week-end and visit to the yacht club aboard his family crui- ser La J ota, returning to the main- land early Monday morning. Mrs. Comlnodore Owen l', Churchill, family and guests have been enjoying the pleasant weather on board Com- z.nodore Churchill's comfortable cruis- ing yacht the past week, and expect to remain at Avalon for several clays, as the commodore is expected to join them in a few clays for a cruise down the coast. Happy Tuft Ford and party of friends are off the yacht club aboard the Minx, and are to spend several (lays at Avalon before returning to the mainland. w Tom Mix and family were visitors at the new yacht club last week-end, and became very nmch interested in the fine building and its finish. Mr. Mix stated he believed the club, of which he is a charter member, will become the most popular club of its kind on the Pacific coast. Mr. Mix's yacht, Miss Mixit, is one of the most handsome craft of its kind on the coast, and he and family enjoy cruis- ing aboard her, for there is every comfort, and convenience to make a trip enjoyable. Mr. and Mrs. Gad Morgan and son were at their moorings off the yacht club for several (lays last week and as Mr. Morgan is a member of the Cat- alina Island Yacht Club, made that place their headquarters when ashore. eight innings the Catalina Cubs ie Paul G.

Apache, that very fast and sea- worthy cruiser belonging to Al Chris- tie, who by the way, is now in Europe for several months, was a week-end arrival at the yacht club with a party of Mr. Christie's friends on board for a quiet visit to Avalon, and to cruise down the Island. Captain Cope and family, aboard the Patricia, came to a quiet anchorage off the yacht club last week-end, and are to spend several clays at Avalon and cruising around the Island. Captain Cope is a member of the Catalina Is- land Yacht Club, anti both he and his family are making thir headquarters there while ashore. According to Secretary :\bbott of the yacht club, there have been a number of yachts visiting Avalon dur- ing the past several weeks, none of the owners of which failed to make use of the landing affm-ded them at the clubhouse float, and the facilities of the clubhouse itself. Some of these visiting yachtmen called on him and ntade application for membership, while a larger portiontook it for granted that they had the privileges of the club irrespective, and never even asked permission to land or to make use of the clubhouse convenien- ces. In talking to many of these yachtnten, the secretary informed them of the fact that only club mem- bers were permitted the use of the landing and clubhouse, and the many excuses given for not joining the club were anmsing, and at times showed a complete lack of appreciation and sportsmanship on their part. To the secretary and management of the club it is inconceivable that any yachts- man would hesitate to join the Cata- lina Island Yacht Club and enjoy the privileges it affords them in having a safe and convenient place to land, and the comforts of the clubhouse, at the small expense of a membership. For years past all yaehtmen coming to Avalon have been landing on the beach, which is far from pleasant, and many times causes damage to boat gear and clothing of the landing party, that would more than pay the cost of becoming a member of the club. The management has been most lenient with these visiting yachtsmen, and has been pleased to have them see what has been accomplished for their con- venience, with the hope they would appreciate the facilities and "become members, thereby giving their support to a much-needed yacht club, with a safe and convenient landing and club- house comforts at Avalon. Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Corrigan of Los Angeles were guests at the Hotel St. Catherine for a few days last week. On Thursday they were guests of Messrs. Burgess and Macbeth for a trip to the lsthnms. Mr. Corrigan is the manager of the circulation depart- ment for the Los Angeles Examiner. It was his first visit to the Isthmus, antl he was very much pleased with the scenic beauties of the trip. Miss Ruth Billheimer, who has been the guest of her relatives, Mr. and Mrs. D. M. Renton of Catalina avenue for the summer returned to her home in South Pasadena on Sunday. Mrs. L. E. Wilkie and daughter Rhoda, who have been spending the summer at Avalon, have returned to Long Beach, where the young lady is attending school. Watch the world come to Catalina.
