COTTON STATIONERY USED FOR ISLAND MAP We 'have been asked several times where the cotton stationery used for printing the map in "Windle's History of Catalina Island" was obtained. It was purchased from The Fulton Cot- ton Mills, Atlanta, Ga. The product is the same as that used for station- ery by the William Wrigley Jr. Co. of Chicago, and is made front southern cotton. The company stationery car- ries the slogan "Cotton for Gum."

Scientists and naturalists apparently have not furnished very much information on the subject. But members of the Division of Fish and. Game have just captured a live doe with antlers and every effort is going to be made to discover why nature has placed head adormnents on just a select few of the gentler sex. The doe is now in a pen at Alum Rock near San Jose and she will remain there until somewhat tame. Our Adlet Column helps. Try it.
