THE CATALINA ISLANDER Many of the Avalonites who have been busy all sunnncr entertaining visitors from the mainland, are now planning their own vacations to the ~nainland. Most of the Avalonites visit the mountain resorts, so that they can participate in a "change of cli- mate." vNz CAr^LINA |SLANDER It is announced that Wrigley Field, ~the new baseball park at Los Angeles, the cost of which is now placed at $I,I00,000, is to be opened on Tuesday afternoon, September 29th, with a game between the Los Angeles and San Francisco teams of the Pacific Coast League. THE CATALINA IELANDER Captain J. J. Bates offers a reward of $50 for information that leads to the conviction oi the person who maliciously cut the porch shades of the porch at the . Christian Science Church, 222 Metropole avenue, on Monday evening, September 7th. The shades, so Captain Bates says, "were deliberately, cut with a knife." THE CATALINA IELANDER 'Announcement has been made by Los Angeles papers that the steamship Cabrillo is to be placed in commission with the close of the summer season here to transport ore from VVhite's Landing to San Francisco. The as- sertion is also made that the steamer Hermosa may be used for the same purpose. During the summer the Ca- brillo has been used for daily trips around the Island and to assist in transportation across the channel when needed. THI[ CATALIN.A ISLANDER Catalina is the mecca of many small- er conventions and conferences, as well as the larger ones. This week the Avalon Comnlunity Church is extend- ing the use of its building to two such meetings. Monday and Tuesday of this week the Staff Workers Coun- cil of the Presbyterian Churches of Southern California met here, as it did two years ago. The latter part of the week there will be held here a con- ference of the Y.M.C.A. leaders of the University. of Southern California, un- der the ! dership 61 secretary Glen E. Turner. Part of their sessions will beheld inAhe church and part of them in the o~0eii air. They held a similar conference here a year ago, and liked the location so well that they decided to come again. AMERICAN LEGION HOSTS GATHERING FOR CONVENTION (Continuea from Page 1, Column 3) vice-chairman of the convention com- mittee, is in charge of arrangements. State Commander Nathan F. Coombs of Napa, who has been in Los Angeles since Thursday superintending pre- liminary arrangements, came over to the Island Saturday. E. H. Bernegger, commander of Catalina Island Psot, No. 137, has had a busy job welcoming the invaders. The official program for business connnenced at 9 o'clock Tuesday morn- ing. The address of welcome was made by Frank O. Fallon, chairman of the Convention Comnlittee and an address of greeting was made by W~n. E. Kost, Commander of the Los An- geles County Council. The meetings are being held in the dancing Pavilion on Crescent avenue. .# $ $ The Grande Promenade of the Grande Voiture, department of Cali- fornia, La Society des 40 Hommes et 8 Chevaux, was held on Monday. Offi- cers for the ensuing year were elected. THE CATALINA ISLANDER EXPLANATORY The fact that the Avalon High School is not on the accredited list of the University of California at the present time is naturally a source of keen disappointment to the faculty and student body of the local institution The circumstances of the case are so unusual that they deserve notice. Accrediting means simldy that ~rad- uates of the high school may be ad- mitted to the accrediting institution without complete entrance examina- tions. Thus the University of Cali- fornia each 3*car sends out a conunittee to visit each high school in the state which has applied for accrediting. Each individual high school must stand entirely upon its own merits, as no high school district is accredited as a w.hole. When the Avalon Hig,h School was first established Principal Dunkle in- quired of the Superintendent whether steps should be taken for the accredit- ing of the school. Superintendent Stephens, who since there had pre- viously been only one high school in Long Beach City High School District thought that the district as a whole was accredited, and gave assurance that our high school was duly accredited, and no action should further be taken in the matter. It was only this summer, while at the University of California, that Prin- cipal Dunkle learned that our high school had not been placed upon the ac- credited list. Steps were inmaediately taken to have it placed o nthe list, and this will be done as soon as the regn- lar inspection of the University author- ities is made. In the meantime Superintendent W. L. Stephens has pledged himself to put his influence and his effort back of every one of our graduates who is ready to enter college.

KFWO VERY BUSY Major Mott, Signal Corps, has been very busy of late, with his far-reach- ing broadcasting station, KFWO. He keeps the Station Log, and the Guest Book always up to date, and the pages are full of interesting names and facts. During American Legion Convention week here the Le#on, through Cap- tain Waddingham, former Post Com- nmnder, and each night, after "Little Charlie Porter" and his band go off the air, at 9, the Legion representa- tives come on. To give the entire list of artists that have been heard over the microfones at KFWO would take up too much space. Suffice it to say a great many, often heard over the mainland stations, have sent their va- rious talents afar through space from "The Isle with a Smile." We are proud of the splendid results that Ma- jor Mott has achieved. On Sunday the Knights of Colum- bus gave a very fine two-hour pro- gram in the afternoon. Judge VVhite's brief chat over the air was one of the finest things that we have heard. Win. Briare, member of The Knights, and operator on the Avalon, is to be conl- plimented on his helpfulness in getting up a really fine broadcast programme in a few hours time. Engineers fronl the Pacific Tele- graph and Telephone Company arrive this week to run the required lines to the St. Catherine Hotel, so that KFWO will broadcast Jess Franklin's delightful orchestra twice daily, attd three times on Sundays. Studio pro- grams will be ~iven three times per week, from 5-6 P.M., and this winter the Major asserts that he is going to show all hands that Avalon can boast of exceedingly GOOD local talent. THE CATALINA ISLANDER SEA AND SUNSHINE Shortly before Mrs. Gene Straton- Porter met her tragic death in an automobile accident in Los Angeles last December, she finished and sent to Doubleday, Page & Company the completed manuscript of a new novel, "The Keeper of the Bees," that was published on August 17th, Mrs. Port- er's birthday, which has long been cele- brated by her publishers as the pub- lication date of each succeeding novel. The story is set in California, her "land of the sun," in which Mrs. Port- er spent the last few years of her life, and deals with a young veteran of the World War, who escaped from an ar- my hospital to take one desperate chance at curing" his wound in the sunshine and brisk sea breezes of the Pacific. Stumbling exhausted into tire blazing flower garden of the keeper of the bees, he finds himself enmeshed in the lives of the master and the lit- tle Scout Master, his partner, who is none the less to be depended upon be- cause she happens to be a girl. And he also finds himself embarked upon as strange a romance as ever a man could choose who has only a few months to live. The bees are wise counsellors.. What they and the little Scout Master teach him about God's way with this sunshiny world, gives 'him the strength and courage to bat- tle his way to health and such happi- ness as he had not dreamed of. THE CATALINA IELANDER Changed His Appearance "You can't keep a good man down," declared the optimist. "No, but you can pound him and flatten him out so he don't look like the same man when he does g,t up," retorted the pessimist. THE CATALINA MORE IMPROVEMENTS TO '~ BE MADE THIS (Contitmed From Page 1, ous turns in the road have been moved. Instead of entering the House grounds on the east side canyon, a new road has been the west side. There was no road, to the mine the Ranch when the writer made trip from Avalon with Mr. some two years ago. Now there is fine road thirty-five feet wide for distance of seven miles. And Black Jack mine to White's four and one half miles, is wonderful piece of road From an altitude of 2,000 feet road "corkscrews" its way down mountain side until the reaches the new pier. It was a suprise to see the rtea pier ! Yes, we, like most of the knew that Carl Johnson and his of men were going down to every day, working. But a pier feet long and 30 feet wide jutting into the bay and with a white beach on the east side, was of a surprise. This pier has been on the west side of the bay and not interfere with the beach, almost one-half mile in length.
