A delicious supper was served at 6 o'clock, comprising Virginia baked ham --potato, combination and fruit salad, cake, coffee, etc. A color scheme of red, green and white was carried out in floral and other decorations, upstairs and down, where places were laid for 100 guests. Before the banquet was served, pre- sentation of a silver coffee percolator was made by Mr. J. C. Crippen, on be- half of the company, to Mrs. Clara Hey, assistant housekeeper at Hotel Atwater. A huge cake, in red, white and green also adorned the table in her honor. Mrs. Hey, along with her sister, Miss Hadfield, who was given a recent surprise party and presenta- tion, are much esteemed by their staff Of workers. After supper a porch party was en- joyed, when dancing to the music of the victrola, songs, readings, games and country dances were the order of the evening. A representation of "The Village Wedding" by several members of the company was especially good. Toasts and farewell greetings brot to a close an unusually happy evening. The crowds which attended the pre- sentation of "Yolanda" at the Strand Theatre last week testified the inter- est people take in good pictures. Man- ager Quinn of the United Theatres is a wide-awake fellow, and says that he proposes to give Avalonites a fine program this fall and winter. Charley German, proprietor of the famous "Charlie's Sandwich Palace," on Crescent avenue, announces in his advertisement this week that it is his intention to keep his place of business open day and night, all winter. He has done a fine business this summer. His motto, "Do not pay for it if not Satisfied," indicates his confidence in his ability to please his customers. watch the world come to Catalina. "MRS. SULLIVAN'S BIRTHDAY" By Ml*koy Ahem Women may keep the number of years they have treaded this earth a secret, but they never hesitate about admitting the date of their birth. Mrs. Margaret Sullivan, housekeep- er at Island Villa, had a green mark on the office calendar over "Septem- ber 2nd," and upon inquiry it was learned by her friends, albeit she did answer bashfully, that is was her birthday. For a wonder, the rest of the ladies around Island Villa and the Hotel At- water didn't go up and whisper con- fidentially in her attentive ear that a "surprise" party was to be showered on her on September 2nd, and "don't let the others know I told you." No, siree! Even Vic just hummed along with the tune of his busy carpet vacuum cleaner and trained his "four hairs" on his shiny dome to behave nicely with a popular brand of hair- combing compound, for Vic was "in on it," and was staying up late nights in his "Nohomebody Inn" preparing a tempting morsel for the "party." September 2nd arrived, and notwith- standing the "girls" and "boys" had worked strenously over Labor Day taking care of the wants of guests at the Hotel Atwater and Island Villa, were there with "belles on their arms." The "girls" presented Mrs. Sullivan (I forgot to mention that her hus- band's name is Michael), with a beau- tiful wrist-watch (guaranteed not to keep exact time so she couldn't "watch" them too closely in the Suture), and the Island Villa office staff presented the lucky lady with a beautiful tray, which husband Michael looked at with seemingly mournful eyes, a la friend Jiggs. Air. Stevenson, although mar- ried himself, presented this handy and handsome gift to Mrs. Sullivan on be- half of the staff, with "best wishes and the hope it lasts a long time." (Michael looked at him fondly.) Then Monsieur Vic Malcuit (which means something in French), the illus- trious porter at the Atwater, stepped up, ably assisted by his comrade, Mons. Henri Gasser, (which means something else in Swiss). Mussing his "four hairs" up in his nervousness, Vic presented Mrs. Sullivan with a beau- tiful birthday cake, with EIGHTEEN green candles adorning the tempting morsel. "Vie" is a diplomat. He knows that Mrs. Sullivan is eighteen and ---also that the green candles would be WELCOME. "Vie" is known for his friendship for the Irish, anyway, as Harbormaster Mutcahy and the writer can vouch for. Ahem!! Many other delightful gifts were presented to Mrs. Sullivan, and it was indeed a happy party. "Silent Jack" Moore, houseman at the Hotel At- water, was the big entertainer of the evening. His repertoire of jokes and stories was immensely enjoyed. Mr. Moore and Steve rendered a lovely vocal duet, accompanied by Mr. Kellar on the victrola, entitled "Sweet Six- teen," which Mrs. Sullivan applauded heartily. All in all, you can't beat those Irish birthday parties. Mr. George Daul, manager of Island Villa and the Hotel Atwater, climaxed the evening of en- tertainment by advising the "girls'~ and "boys" that they could take the rest of the night off and report for duty at 6 a. m. Many happy returns, Mrs. Michael Sullivan, and here's hoping the nice heavy tray lasts a long time. AVALON CUB SCOUTS HIKE Last Wednesday, noon, twelve Wolf Cubs, in charge of Cubmaster H. Ben- jamin Robison, left Avalon on the cruiser Arvilla and arrived at Gallager Beach about 1 o'clock. Here two de- lightful days were spent in games, fishing, swimming and hikes. On Thursday a hike was taken over the hills to the Boy Scout clubhouse in Willow Cove. Instructions were given in swimming and life saving, and the boys gained much practical knowledge during the trip. Each day was completed with a splendid campfire, round which the stories were told and all joined in on songs and yells. They returned to Avalon on Friday. The Cubs had as their guests ten Boy Rangers of America from the Glen- dale Congregational church, with Mr, H, C. Wilcox as their guide. This is a similar organization, and booth troops gained by exchanging ideas and meth- ods. SINGING SUNDAY Roe Plimpton, the very popular vocal soloist of the Catalina Marine Band, has been singing a solo each Sunday morning this summer at the regular morning service of the Community (Congregational) church. As the band season is nearly over, and the musici- ans will soon be returning to the main land, the church service at 10:30 a. tit., next Sunday will probably be the last opportunity this season to hear Mr. Plimpton sing in Avalon. Mrs. Piimp- ton will, as usual~ play the accompan- iment. The services of Mr. and Mrs. Plimpton have been greatly appreciat- ed, and everyone is invited to hear them next Sunday. "The Shepherd Psalm" will be the sermon topic of the pastor, Roy, La- Rue C. Watson, at 7:00 p. m., Sunday at the Community Church. The sing- ing of five or six "Shepherd" songs will be a feature of this service. THE ISLANDER ADLET5 ADLET RATES--Ten cents per line per issue.
