Oesterle It is a talc of woe and sad but truc as we turn our thoughts back and wonder what has happened to that fleeting summer cra:nmed full of good cheer and happiness made possible in a major degree by genial Jan Garber and his superlative orchestra of boys that are our pals. Now that the Fall season is here (which, by the way is the most beautiful time of the year at Catalina) it brings to our memory more emphatically than ever that the time has come to say au revoir (but not for long) to Jan and our pals--the boys of the band. And right here and now those throbs are in our hearts and our hearts are in our throats as words are inadequate to express our sincere gratefulness for those many pleasant and friendly relationships which have existed during the much too short an engagement at this "In All The World Only One Santa Catalina Island." For consolation we will anxiously await the time when the arrival of the Greater than Ever Jan Garber with his Orchestra returns for another his- tory-making and attendance record- breaking chapter of joy and happiness at this Heaven on Earth Catalina, where the comings anti goings will come and go all through the ages. A farewell dance-week is now in vogue at the Casino and Sunday night will mark the final opportunity to of- fer our best wishes to our own genial Jan and his orchestra--so folks, put it down in your book of Must-goes, anti be present tonight and every night, if possible, as it won't be long now. See you at the Casino. t]y ])avey On last Tuesday the civil war broke Oil[ :lg~.[ill xvhcII ()'NcaF's Blue Ribbons met the Angel Jr's, only to finish sec- trod best in the argument by a score of 9 to 4, Wednesday the home team took a 12 to 1 pasting by the Hohlema Club, which sure gave us a dandy lesson. Our onlv run being scored by Suytar on a 4 "base smash. Thursday after holding the Elbees helpless for 7 innings, White slipped in the 8th to allow 4 scores. Kimball who took his place, held the enemy at bay, our team winning 9 to 8. On Friday we defeated the St. Aug- ustine Club 6 to 5 in a very interest- ing game that was not decided until the 9th. Kimball again did a nice job of relief pitching when Wilkins was taken out on account of being hit. On Saturday, after a bad start when Kittle allowed the Colburn Brokers to score 5 runs in two frames. FI~ then settled down to pitch nice ball. In the meantime our boys ganged up on that U.S.C. star Gonzales in the fourth to score 6 runs on 5 hits, top- ped by a homer with the bases load- ed by Veling. to send the great one to the shower. Score 10 to 8. Same teams met again Sunday a.m. and the visitors got sweet revenge by licking us 5 to 1. On Monday in an exciting game the Home Guard just won this one by the score of 9 to 8; both teams exchang- ing leads. That Southern California flash, Gonzales tried his hand again and lasted just one frame. I want to thank "Bird Park Gordy", that loyal Giant and Yankee rooter for the efficient way he took care of in) :.:a::h::,ca::.: , ~.:- from the :::::nland. He was on the job every minute. He isa credit to the Trans- i,ortation Department. The umpiring this season by Ernie Stewart and Dan CrowIey was of Big League variety. These two boys will sure make someone hustle for his job in t!ae Coast League. Here's loads of luck to both of thc:n. They are swell fellows un and off the fieht.

K. Wrigley ought to erect on the hill at the opposite side of the bay from the Casino, a handsome statue in honor of the millions of girls throughout the Nation, who for years have been in- dustriously chewing gmn to pay for it all. A sort of corresponding adorn- ment to the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor, you know.
