PAGE TWO: THE CATALINA ISLANDER Ode To Editor of The Journal The following letter was received by the Wilmington Jonrnal in the mail a few days ago: Dear Editor-- I read enclosed in a San Francisco paper,: thinking it appropriate, I have made some slight changes and send it to yoa f j: ,, ,Yours as ever, Thos. P. Swift. An Appreciation The editor at the pearly gate, His face looked worn and old; He meekly asked the man of fat6. For admission to the fold. "What have you done," asked Peter, "To seek admission here ?" "Oh, I used to run a Wihnington paper On earth for many a year." The gate ~wung open sharply, As Peter touched the bell, ' : VCome in my lad, and take your harp, You've had enough of hell.'" "Keep Avalon a Spotless Town."

Mr. Rt)ss is taking the 1)o- siti~,n that fish and game, including shellfish of at1 kinds, belong to all of the t)eol)ie of the state primarily. The ordinary citizen does m,t real- ize how the great salmon industry and other sources of sea fc)~)d supply, such as the clam beds ~,n the beaches, bays and ri~ers, and the king crab, crawfish and shrimp, are being des- troycd by the ruthless march of cc,m- mercial fisheries. Dr. Ross has made himself a heroic figure in the Pacific Northwest in bat- tling against wholesale destruction by fisheries, crabbcries and clammeries where with power boats, dragnets and every destructive device, carlc~ads c)f these products are procured and ship- ped all over the country, and tc) the big cities of the east actually extermi- nating and destroying these great phases of sea life. Hundreds of miles ~,f our seacoast, mud flats in ~mr bays and shores of our great rivers cmpty-ing into the Pacific ocean have been literally de- nuded of every vestige ~)f these marine food supplies. Shall all these ,Iclicious (foal-given supplies of ocean fc~od, bred on the Pacific coast and its estuaries and great rivers, go the way of the buffah,, to be seen only in acquariulns, written about in books and told about by. the pitmeers ? It remains to be seen. \Vays and means nlust be pr,,vided so that industry in co-operation with the state, will replenish our sea food sup- plies to offset the amount takenin commercial pursuits. THE CATALINA ISLANDER DESTRUCTION BY WASTE OIL PROHIBITED Acting under a law recently enacted by Cc, ngress, Department of Justice agents, under the direction of Lucien Wheeler, have begnn investigation of many complaints that ships were clean- ing out their bilges and dumping oil an,l other refuse in proximity to bath- ing beaches during the past summer. M,nsters of vessels and officers of cor- porations controlling them will be held responsible. Complaints will be filed in the Federal Court for violations. The bill to prohibit oil pollution in navigable waters (Public 238, S-1942), was approved June 7, 1924. This bill was a compromise measure resuhing from a numb6r of other bills with sim- ilar objects in view. It forbids the dumping of oil in navigable coastal and inland tidal waters. A penalty is provided of not less than $5(10 nor more than $2,500. With the number of oil-burning and oil-transporting steam- ers rapidly increasing, the amomlt of waste oil that has been dumped into the sea has increased rapidly within the last few years. This oil is deadly in its effect on marine life with which it comes in con- tact. It destroys oysters and other shell-fish, destroys the fertility of fish spawn, and covers the feathers of ducks, geese and other water birds, causing the death of untold thousands of them each year; all of this in addi- tion to its destructive effects along the shore, where bathing beaches and other attractive parts of the coasts have been seriously damaged by drift- ing oil. jl [ BA OA Baggage Checked at Your Door THE AVALON TRANSFER CO.
