THE MAN OF THE LAW By John N. Stewart (A tribute to the members of the California Bar Association). He argues and pleads for his client's needs, He cites and recites till we're dizzy; He is keen, and he's clean, that's plain to be seen; He's brainy, he's bright and he's busy. Through all his long cases though trouble he faces He is calm--he is cool and serene; With a couple of looks at his leather-bound books He becomes a legal machine. If he is your friemt, he will fight to the end; A square deal for all is his creed. He's a jurist, a purist, a heaven-bound tourist, And he's the man of the hour of need[ t Cahfornm Bar Assocmtlon Banque L. By Ernest Windle Senator La Follett's attack on the power of the supreme court to inter- )ret the Constitution was denounced by Secretary of the Navy Curtis D. Wilbur at the annual banquet of the California Bar Association, held at the Hotel St. Catherine Saturday evening. At the banquet were more than 250 persons, most of them California State judges or attorneys. The dinner was served at 8 p. m. but it was consider- nobody seemed to like it. Now they are canning albacore, and the industry has become one of the largest in Southern California. I have enjoyed my visit to the Island this time, al- though I did not get an opportunity to go fishing, I am speaking in Los An- geles this afternoon (Sunday)." So that he would be able to get a few hours much needed rest, Secretary of the Navy Wilbur occupied a state- Frida Se tember 19 [able after one o'clock Sunday morning room on board the steamship Avalon, Y' P " d 8 !before the last of the speakers Hon. while the vessel lay at the dock.

Toastmaster Hodghead laughingly re- marked that it was "long since past his bedtime !" The daily newspapers carried a full account of Secretary Wilbur's inter- esting speech delivered at the banquet. It was after the meeting adjourned that the secretary said: "I came to Catalina Island in 1888, and again in 1897, and have very happy recollec- tions of my two previous visits. Once at Johnson's Landing we camped for three days, and I had nay first taste of albacore It was a fish I caught, and g ington, D. C., and Judge George F. Noble of Stockton California. Toastmaster Hodghead, who told the guests that he was from San Fran- cisco, already had quite a reputation for his humor and wit, but, in base- ball parlance, the genial toastmaster was "on his toes" all evening Jokes that make judges laugh seemed to be those of the two-edged combination of words; brief, short and snappy, and the toastmaster had wit and repartee for each of the speakers, including Miss Willebrandt. (Continued on Page 10, Column 1) WE'RE GOING HOME--BUT Harriet A. Waldman Catalina, we will miss your subtle charm, As "the autumn our vacation closes; True, Old Sol will give us greeting more than warm And our friends will kid us 'bout our noses-- Laugh at us for peeling cheek, and blistered arm, In our home town--where no jester dozes. Nothing though need cause you any great alarm As each one --as your admirer poses. Avalon, September 9th, 1924. IT'S ALL IN THE STATE OF MIND If you think you are beaten, you are; If you think you dare not, you don't If you think you'd like to win, but you think you can't, It's ahnost a "cinch" you ;,yon't; If you think you'll lose, you've lost, For out in the workl you find Success begins with a felIow's will--- It's all in the state of mind. Full many a race is lost Ere even a race is run, And many a coward fails Ere even his work's begun. Think big, and your deeds will grow, Think small amI you fall behind, Think that you can, and you will; It's all in the state of mind. If you think you are outclassed, you are ; You've got to think high to rise; You've got to be sure of yourself before You can ever win a prize. Life's battle don't always go To the stronger or faster man; But sooner or later, the man who wins Is the fellow who thinks he can. --Author Unknown. USE BRAINS TO GAIN BEAUTY WOMEN TOLD BY COSMETICAN "To be beautiful, a woman must have mental exercise, she nmst use her brains." That was the message F. D. Mayer gave to the women of the country. Mayer is a big manufacturer of cos- metics and was one of the speakers at the Chicago session of American Cosmeticians. "Physical beauty, as accentuated by the too liberal application of cosmet- ics, has become cheap." Mayer said. "Man is not as much attracted by it as formerly. The beautiful woman of the future will have to be beautiful in mind." Powder and paint will do their part, but dictionaries and arithmetics must be used along with lipsticks. It was announced Wednesday that D. M. Renton in all probability will be commissioned to prepare plans for the new baseball grandstand to be built at the corner of Thirty-ninth street and Grand avenue for the Los Angeles Baseball Club. According to prelimi- nary plans, the structure will have a seating capacity for 20,000 people and will be of reinforced concrete It will be so designed as to carry an addi- tional upper deck. Four hundred and twenty thousand dollars has been esti- mated as the cost of the improvement. "Keep Avalon a Spotless Town." We pledge our help l
