Islander Editorial: "Back To Bannings and Prosperity:" Two meetings with local businesses came up with the idea of keep- ing Avalon incorporated, giv- ing the Pleasure Pier back to leaving the boats. In staying incor- porated, the city has to establish a police force and work much closer with the "Freeholders," thus get- ting a better working relationship with the S. C. I., Co. The city can- not run the tourism alone. On the best summer days in 1913, there were between 8-10,000 tourists in town, In 1914, only 3,000. " ... a continual howl is made for a 'big- ger and better Avalon--without spoiling its charm.' Something has to be sacrificed to promote har- mony. The weaker factor (Avalon) must be governed by the stronger forces (S. C. I., Co.)." "Loan me four-bits, Boss!" has taken the place of the slogan, "For a bigger and cleaner Avalon." "Haggard faces the funeral march will be the Catalina 'tango' for the coming winter." What sure is more desir- able and inspiring than romping, happy children at play? Avalon has missed a great deal of that kind of pleasure this season. "This port will never be closed as long as I have anything to do with it.' exclaimed the would be city attorney. And because he spoke thusly, the Island trembled, many of our citizens grew white- haired during the night, and they dreamed of the European war as a mere fleabite to what Avalon was to be. Now isn't that too bad t Picturesque Avalon painted in the crimson--a dying warrior's blood! .... Now that the summer is over, there are two things which we can do. One is to continue our fight against the Company, and the other, for the property owners and business men to appoint a com- mittee for the purpose of settling the existing differences. "Several times they (Company) have done this, but have always been accused of ulterior motives. It is a foregone conclusion that the S. C. I. Co can operate their busi- ness without any assistance from the citizens of Avalon, but it can- not be said that the citizens can do a prosperous business without the help of the Company. "There are plans for a 10 year agreement with the S. C. I., Co. to get back to where it was before incorporation and let the Company control Avalon. "As a resort town, Avalon is distinct in itself. It has manifested some pride that it did not cater to amusements of an immoral nature, like many other beach resorts do. To maintain this distinction, all things should be operated in an uncommon manner. This in itself will be an attrac- tion to many. Our problems may be out of place in some more mod- ern social organizations, but what Avalon lacks in pomp and ceremo- ny, it more than recovers again by possessing natural attractiveness and pristine beauty." Avalon "is a municipality battered, bedraggled, and almost financially powerless. Three, four, or five years hence, history will record the fiasco." 223 Beacon Street Newly buih Contemporary Estate 6,8011SF, 2,000 SF of decks, 3BR/6BA, infinily pod, elevator, many more designer featurmJ o tat $8,38o, ooo 208 Cotdin Street Duplex.
