This being a joint event for the two yacht clubs, it was well at- tended, there being thhrty yachts at anchor during the outing. Connnodore Ramsey of the C. I. Yacht Club and Commodore Douglas R. Radford of the L. A. Yacht Club, with their staff officers were on hand to see that everybody did their share and enjoyed themselves to the utmost, and they certainly worked hard to make the three days complete. Of course, that. Old Man of the Sea, Ed Abbott, who is secretary-treasurer of the two clubs, was in evidence and did his stuff. Clem Stoce, past commodore of the San Diego Yacht Club came up with several friends, among them being Commodore AI Frost of the San Diego Yacht Club, on board the power crui- ser Kitty B.

Claude Putman and guests arrived front Balboa on his fast sloop Joy. Hugh Angleman and Tom Smith own- ers and operators of the Wilmington Boat Building Company, dropped their hook, coming over from Wilmington on board their new aux-schooner Ocean Wave. Our old friend and well knowu boat builder, Joe Fellows, with his two boys, Rusty and Richard and guests, were also there, as was Victor Stewart, Joe's partner in crime. Jimmie Shuch and friends were on board the Maria Ellen. Jimmie is with the Fellows-Stewart outfit. Dr. Geo. M. Fairfield had as his guests, Dr. Mc- Mehan and Secretary Abbott on board the Bello Campo. There were many more of the old yachting crowd there, but space precludes enumerating all. The eats .were on time and were well cooked and served under the big fia trees, where everybody was seated at large tables and in comfort, Races from the Government Break- water to Johnson's Landing, were a feature of the outing and there were quite a number of entries. In the "R" Class the Debra was the winner, she being sailed by Commodore Ben W'eston and is owned by Syl Spalding. Commodore Douglas R. Radford's beautiful trophy cup was awarded the Debra. Patricia was second, skippered by her owner, Pierpont Davis. Gall- iano II was third, and her owner, Vice- Commodore Owen P. Churchill, Cata- lina Island Yacht Club, handled the stick, and on coming ashore, started to walk to Cherry Valley, where his power cruiser Galliano with his family on board was at anchor. We saw no more of Owen, which was greatly regretted. In the Handicap Sloop race, the Vite was first. The Vite is owned by Dr. McNeil and was sailed during~ the race by him. Doe took the trophy cup pre- sented by Rear Commodore W. W. Wilson, L.A.Y.C. for his trip. The Estella H. was second. In the race of smaller yawls and schooners, the yawl Minerva was first and was plesented with a trophy cup given for this event by Connnodore VVm. C. Warmington, N.H.Y.C. Min- erva is owned and skippered b3) L. M. Charles. Cygnet and Ocean Wave came in in the order stated. In the race of the larger yawls and schooners, the yawl Ortona was first, winning the Ben Weston trophy cup. The Ortona is owned by Dan Lauber- shimer and he was at the stick during the race. The schooner Diablo was second. Captain Pedder and friends enjoyed the trip over, but was out- pointed in some way. The sports ashore was one of the big features of the outing and every- body joined in them. Football, base- ball and foot races. A treasure hunt, this .was a scream, for the prize was hidden away up on the hill and was for blood, for it was worth winning. Swimming races in the bay, with punt sailing~ races. The cruise was declared to be the best one held by the old crowd. Every- body enjoyed every nfinute of the time and look forward to a bigger and better turnout next year. When this old bunch of sea-going yachtsmen get together on anything, something is bound to give way, and pulling to- gether as they do, whatever they un- dertake will be a howling success All hail to the old salts and may they never be out of bilge water in their tanks ! THE CATALINA ISLANDER BOOST, BUT DON'T KNOCK To promote the interests of your comnmnity at the expense of another avails little. You may live in the best place on earth, but if you try to build it up by tearing down some other comn)unity, the very instrmnent you use will prove to be a boomerang. There' is no place on the face of the earth that has no faults, and the best places are those that live, not at the expense of someone else, but out of the fullness of their Own generosi- ty toward all the rest of the earth. It is perfectly proper to tell the worhl about the advantag'es of your city, but when you do it don't point out the disadvantages some neighbor may have. This neighbor may know of disadvantages that your city may have and may be inclined to retaliate. The most profitable way is to boost your own city: herald its advantages to the worht, and in turn give the rest of the world credit for what it has coming. In this way you will earn the cooperation of your neighbors and will have the other fellow boosting for you--the best kind of advertising you can get.--Exchange. THE CATALINA ISLANDER Why Not the Sea as Playmate? Harry Carr in The Times It has always seemed a great pity that we do not make more of a play- mate of the sea. Sailing, for gome reason, seems in California to be passed by as a luxury of the rich. But, if ever, in the whole world, there was an ideal place for small ' sailboats of small cost it is in the wa- ters of the Santa Barbara channel-- from Santa Barbara to San Diego. The waters are so smooth and the winds so even and quiet that yachting accidents are almost unknown. To be- come a finished and expert sailor is one of the fine arts; but just to sail a boat, and get a lot of fun out of it, is just as simple and easy as walking. i "50.75" m California's Diamond Jubilee San Francisco. Sept. 5-12, '25 By C.H.S. The figures at the top of this article represent the way the great celebra- tion at San Francisco was designated by members of the Native Sons of the Golden West and Native Daughters of the Golden \Vest (organizations com- posed of men and wonlen born in the State of California). The first two figures represent the age of the order of N.S.G.W., which was organized in San Francisco July 11, 1875. The members chose to unite their fiftieth birthday celebration with that of the seventy-fifth birthday of their native state on September 9th-- its "diamond jubilee." The writer will not attempt to de- scribe the event, but will reprint a few paragraphs from the San .Fran- cisco Examiner of the day following the grand parade of September 9th, which will enable our readers to grasp an idea of its scope, size and success: "There were 55,000 marchers; it took five hours and 45 nfinutcs to pass the reviewing stand; it was 15 miles in length, and 650,000 persons saw it. "Number of floats--102. Number of organizations--182. "More people than were in all of Golden California 75 years ago jammed, packed, overflowed Sara Francisco, jub- ilantly rejoiced for the state's birth- day party. "The gorgeousness of the pageantry, the picture of California's tradition, its wealth, its romance, its beauty, are beyond power to describe. One may only recount. "George Barron, director of the pa- geant, said that it would have cost a private organization at least $1,000,000 to have put on the great show by it- self. He gave all credit to the Native Sons and Native Daughters of Califor- nia, guardians of the State's. glorious past,' for the triumphant success that it was." Vice-president Dawes, who was pres- ent as a representative of the federal government, in opehing a speech in the evening, said : "Your parade today was the finest historical pageant ever given in this country, I thoroug~hly believe. Now I understand the marvelous spirit of you Californians. "Your pride in the past is so justifi- able that you can well afford to be ex- travagant ira singing the praises of this wonderful land." Somewhat Personal "One parade every fifty years is plen- ty /orCharles H. Smith of Avalon, Santa Catalina Island, one of the marchers in the huge Admission Day- Diamond Jubilee parade yesterday. The last time Smith marched on the streets of San Francisco was Septem- ber 9, 1875, three, months after the Native Sons of the Golden West had been formed. Smith was the fourth man to join the order, and was it~ first secretary." The writer is now a member of Ra- mona Parlor No. 109, N.S.G.W., Los Angeles, the largest Parlor in the state, and would be glad to talk with any natives of California who may be interested in the order.
