PAGE , EN FISH, FISHING, FISHERMEN (Continued from page 1, col. 1) Win. B. Stringfellow, past presi- dent of the Tuna Club, is still here with his family at their home on East Terrace. Mr. Stringfellow has been on the sick list most of the time dur- ing his vacation, which ends this week. However, this good rodman will be coming over week-ends to try his luck during the balance of the fishing season. Mr. and Mrs. Sam Bagby of Los Angeles have been here for the past two weeks aboard their cruiser Vir- ginia. Mr. Bagby is an active mem- ber of the Tuna Club and -accomp- lished his heart's desire in the taking of a marlin swordfish on his three-six tackle. The fish weighed 160 los and Mr. Bagby gets a beautiful Fame Gold Medal presented by the Club /or his catch. The Bagbys left for the main- land on Monday last. Gee. H. Doty of Long Beach, active member of the Tuna Club, has' finally. broken his tong run of hard luck and now has four marlin to his credit. His daughter, Mrs. H. L. Beckley, also took a marllin on Monday while fishing with her Dad on their cruiser Vermar, and Mr. Doty also took one the same day. After pictures were . taken of the catch Mrs. Beckley re- turned to her home in Long Beach feeling very elated and mebbie Dad was somewhat delighted, also. Mr. and Mrs. Dan M. Baker, Jr. of Beverly Hills, with Mr. and Mrs. Bob Parsons of Los Angeles as their guests aboard the Baker cruiser U-R- 2 were fishing over the week-end, Mr. Baker really did himself proud on Saturday in fighting and finally land- ing a marlin of 176 lOs on his light tackle. The fight lasted 5 hours and 45 minutes and really was a battle. Mr. Baker was heartily congratulated in getting his fish after such a long gruelling fight. James W. Jump was a mighty busy man over the week-end, being in charge o'f the Annual Commodores' Cruise held at the Isthmus. Mr. jump had to give up his fishing for three or four days, but the old veter- an is back on the job and may put over one of his surprise catches as there are lots of fish in the channel at this time. , , It Gee. E. Pillsbury, Jr., veteran active member of the Tuna Club,' has been around here for the past few. days but so far has not come ashore to report his doings. This morning, a little after 6 o'clock this game rodman was laying into a marlin on light tackle, and as one Would expect, he got his fish. At this writing Mr. Pillsbury is still out after the fish and we may get a late flash of a big fish aboarcl his boat. W. L. Valentine of San Marine, with Mrs. Valentine and a party of guests were over for the week-end aboard their beautiful yacht Volodor. During their stay Mr. Valentine and his guest, Judge "James P. Mackel fished from private launches from the yacht. On Tuesday Mr. Valentine took a marlin of 148 tbs. We are hop- ing to be able to record a catch by Judge Mackel ere we go to press. Drl John White, active member of the Tuna Ctub is somewhat chesty these days as John has really been doing things, taking three marlin in rapid succession, and still out for more. Keel) the good work up John. Gee. M. Duntley of LOs Angeles, aml his family have been here for a few days aboard their cruiser Kath- leen. Mr. Duntley is a member of the Tuna Club and is out after marlin aboard his private boat. gl wit Mrs. Keith Spalding of Pasadena was over for a few days aboard their beautiful yacht Goodwill. This lady angler has fished the Catalina waters for many years, and has taken about every kind of game fish both "big and MIS-USE OF COMMUTATION BOOKS For the benefit of residents of Ava- lon, tlae Wiimmgton Transportatm~n Company some years ago applied to the Railroad Commission of me ~tate ot California to be permitted to issue a commutation book at reduced rates. 'l'h~s permission was granted carrying the snpulation as required by law tlaat these books be used only by res- idents of Avalon,and members of their immediate families--in other words dependents living under the same reel. Unfortunately the lay 12ublic does not always understand the laws that govern the granting of reduced fares, the regulation of regular fares, the limitation of the granting of p~sses or the penalties to which a railroad or steamship company and its ex~ecutives are subject if these laws and rulings are violated. In the past year many residents have violated the use of the commuta- tion books issued them and abused the privilege which the Wilmington Transportation Company had secured for them. Purchasers of commutation books have loaned them for use l~y cousins, uncles and even friends. Av- alon merchants have even been known to use co:nnmtation books to bring employees to the Island for restau- rants, hotels, etc. This is in direct violation of the ruling of the Railroad Commission and subjects the Wil- mington Transportation Company and its executives to serious penalties. The Santa Catalina Island Company and the Santa Catalina Island Concessions Company pay cash for tickets to the Wilmington Transportation Company for all transportation of employees, whether for its various hotels, its of- rices or any of its departments, and this cost is directly charged in cash to the operation of these businesses. In other words the Santa Catalina Is- land Company and the Santa Catalina Island Concessions Company are not permitted to issue passes for their em- ployecs or to take advantage of a re- duced rate on commutation books. If the practice of mis-use of com- mutation books continues, the Wil- mington Transportation Company, in self-defense, will have to ask their withdrawal. This would work a hardship on many Avalon residents who now have the privilege of using the commuta- tion books, a privilege which the Wil- mington Transportation_ Company would like to continue, and therefore asks that everyone who uses a com- mutation ticket zealously guard its use for his or her own protection as well as that of the Company. ~:O:~ The crowds are leaving, many be- cause the children have to enter school, others from force of habit. However, some of the finest .weather of the year is experiencced on Santa Catalina Island during the fall and winter months. small. Mrs. Spalding took a marlin fishing from her private fishing launch during this trip. The Goodwill left for the mainland on Tuesday morn- ing. wit * sis Mr. and Mrs. Grey M. Skidmore of Downey with their two daughters, are still here aboard their fishing launch Helene. Mr. Skid_more is an active member of the Tuna Club and has taken several marlin this season in- cluding his g6td button fish. He plans to fish for the balance of the season. M. C. Tweedy of Downey, active member of the Tuna Club, comes over each week-end to do a little marlin fishing. Mr. Tweedy has taken one or two fish already this season. lit Frank E. Bivens and family are spending a week or two here aboard their cruiser Marieanne. Mr. ]3ivens is a member of the Tuna Club and he is out every day looking for a button fish. This week-end he had his dad amt mother over to watch him' get his fish, but he drew a blank. The Biven family live in Santa Monica.
