PAGE. TWO , , ,,., THE CATALINA ELKS CATALINA MEETING PROVES GREAT SUCCESS (Continued from Page 1. Column 4) With Major George Ruhlen, Jr., .Captain J. C. Stephens and Captai.n Arthtir W. Burton of Fort McArthur, as judges, the drill teams presented what was later described by experts as an hour and a half of the snappiest drill work ever staged in California. Teams Complimented In appearance, accuracy of maneu- vers, knowledge of the manual of arms and military precision, the drill teams were so closely lined that selection of the winners was a matter that requir- ed considerable time, following the closing of the contest. The drill team of Bakersfield Lodge, No. 266, clad in the white and purple uniforms that represent the colors of Elkdom, was one of the last to appear on the field and the work of the twenty-two uni- formed men evoked the admiration of more than 5000 spectators. Band Contest Five lodges were represented in the band contest at the dancing pavilion in class A, comprising bands of thirty pieces or more, Santa Monica, Pasa- dena and Glendale lodge bands com- peting. The award went to the latter. In class B, bands of less than thirty pieces, San Pedro and Oxnard lodges were the entrants. So excellent was the work of the various bands that the judges here also had difficulty in making the awards. San Pedro was finally declared the winner in the class 13 contest. In addition to the state trophy for each class the winners were awarded valuable trophies by the Long Beach Lodge. Judges of the band contests were George Mulford, leader of the Catalina Island Marine Band, George Geoffrion, librarian, and Harry Baldwin, mem- bers of the same organization. O/~ficers Chosen At the Saturday morning session of the State Convention, held in the Strand Theatre, the following officers were elected: President, Edgar F. Da- vis, Past Exalted Ruler of Long Beach Lodge; vice-presidents, South District, William Nielson of San Bernardino; South Central district, Charles H.

Breit- wesier of Susanville. Merced Lodge, No. 1240, will enter- tain the State Association in 1925, the 'session to be heht in Yosemite Valley. The parade Saturday afternoon, which included the various drill teams, bands and stunt teams, together with the delegates and visitors, proved a ccanplete success. Many delegates pronounced it the best Elks parade ever held in California. Expensive Luxury "You ought to have a ehaffeur. Can't you afford one ?" "I might afford the chaffeur," repli- ed Mr. Chuggins. "But I couldn't afford the kind of a car he'd want to take his friends out riding in."-- Washington Star. "What's the score?" "Nothin' to nothin'." "Thank goodness, I haven't missed anything." FRANK CHANCE AN OLD- TIME CATALINA BOOSTER The funeral services for Frank Chance, the "Peerless Leader," were held last week in Los Angeles. He was 47 years of age. Frank Chance commenced to make history twenty years ago, when he joined the Chicago Cubs as a catcher, later becoming first baseman, when the famous combination, "Tinteer to Evers to Chance," become a sporting proverb. For many years Frank Chance had been a regular visitor to Catalina Is- land. It was in the spring of 192/)that he suggested to the editor of the Cat- alina Islander the wonderful possibili- ties of the old golf course as a train- ing ground for the Chicago Cubs. Pos- sibly Frank made the same suggestion to others. Anyhow, the Chicago Cubs have now the finest training ground in the worhl. Chance's death has followed a year of futile battle against bronchial asth- ma. Ahhough he has led a number of other baseball clubs to victory, there was always a warm spot in his heart for the Chicago Cubs. There are many sportsmen who re- lain fond memories of Frank Change. NEWSPAPER SERVICE FIFTY DOLLARS A DAY After spending the summer at Ava- lon as circulation representative of the Los Angeles Examiner, W. R. Mac- beth returned to the meainland Sun- day. For the past three years Mr. Macbeth has been sent to Avalon for the smmner season while the special boat carrying the newspapers across the channel, arrived at Avalon at six o'clock. Due to the combined efforts of the two Los Angeles morning papers the metropolitan newspapers have been delivered to the Avalon subscribers be- fore breakfast. Mr. Macbeth stated that the cost of bringing the papers to the Island was divided equally be- tween the Times and the Examiner. "It costs more than $50 a day," said the genial newspaper man, "but great newspapers seldom figure the cost of operation when they are giving their subscribers the news and service."
