LEGION BANQUET AND INSTALLATION A SUCCESS By Art Stevens Wednesday evening of last week rhe drum corps of Catalina Island Post 137, American Legion, gathered in front of Mark's Coffee Shop on Cres- cent avenue and proceeded to enter- tain a large crowd of Legionnaires and citizens with their snappy mar- tial rhythm. The Legion was having its first "feed" of the winter season--and what a feed it was. Comrade Williamson certainly "done himself proud" with the delicious dinner served, and re- ceived the approbation of the gang. Congratulations, Mark ! After the dinner was stowed away, Commander Heywood called the Post to order and made a few brlef re- marks concerning the activities of the Legion during his administration as Commander. He then introduced Past Area Cormnander A. B. Waddingham, who was the organizer and first commander of Post 137.

He then proceeded to install the follow- ing officers for the ensuing year: George Kirk, Commander; Jack Hannan, First Vice Commander; Art Stevens, Second Vice Commander; A. L. Laurance, Adjutant; Robert Penni- well, Chaplain; Ralph Brown, Histor- ian; Leon Lynam, Sergeant-at-arms; M. F. Fitzgerald, Finance Officer. After the installation ceremony, Comrade Waddingham called upon the Mayor of Avalon, Comrade Fred Paul- son, who gave a splendid talk on "The American Legion and Civic Govern- ment." This address was greatly en- joyed by all present. The new Commander, George Kirk, nmde a short talk and announced the appointment of the following cotmnit- tees and committee chairmen; also the delegates to County Council: Executive Committee--E. R. Abbott, Allen Tufts, John Wegmann, Mike Cameron. Americanization, Hugh Stevenson. Boy Scouts, Ralph Heywood. Cbmmunity Betterment, Fred Paul- son. Emergency )2ommittee, W. H, Mul- cahy.

Ogden, 1926; Os- car Griffith, 1927; Hugh Stevenson, 1928; Larry Paper, 1929, and Ralph Heywood, 1931. Past Conurmnder H. R. Baker, 1930, and J. Malloch, 1923, were unable to be present.

Total catch of marlin to date for 1931 has now reached the phenomenal figure of 664 and still they come. On Sunday seven fis'h were taken; two of these were taken by A. R. Martin, president of the Tuna Club. This good angler has been taking fish pretty reg- ular of late and at this writing he is out aboard the Greenfield-Martin cruiser "Erma III," with Milton Pat- rick as his guest, and w a~ hope later to be able to record a double header from this trip. Messrs. J. W. Jump and Willard Van Brunt have returned to the scene of action to keep up the good work and they, aboard their own boats, are out to help swell the total. Our Adlet Column-helps.

COOKMAN COMING Friends in Avalon will be interested to learn of the nlarriage of Theodore Sierks, son of Mrs. Ahna Owerholt, and Miss Claire Holland, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. S. Reid Holland of 137 South Fullmer Street, Beverly Hills, which took place last Saturday even- ing at 8 o'clock at the All Saints Epis- copal Church, Pasadena. Dr. Chase officiated at the wedding ceremony. The bride, a picture of loveliness in shell pink chiffon, wore orchids and lilies of rhe valley. She was given in marriage by her father. Her sister, Miss Louise Holland, was bridesmaid, and Ray Gillespie attend- ed the groom as best man. The bride, a popular member of Los Angeles' younger social set, is a graduate of the Otis Art School anti has been a frequent visitor to Catalina with sununer collegiate groups. The groom, who has already won consid- erable recognition as a brilliant young newspaper man, graduated from the Catalina grammar school, attended Avalon High School, and later Pasa- dena Junior College. He began his newspaper career in the Catalina Is- lander office; now holds the responsi- ble position of editor of the Los An- geles County Health News, and is Public Relations Director for the Los Angeles County Health Department. A few months ago he directed a stren- uous newspaper campaign against the sale of "Jake Gin," which had cost the lives of several persons in the county and caused paralysis of many others, with the result that Governor Rolvh signed a bill forbidding its sale in the State of California, the first step taken by any state to curb an evil that has been taking a fearful toll of life and human usefulness, especially in south- ern states. The Catalina Islander extends to the happy young couple its congratula- tions. Mr. and Mrs. Sierks will make their home in Altadena. ---~-: O : -- Chester Conklin, famous comedian, has joined the lzaak Waltons and has declared his hand by taking out an associate membership in the Tuna Club. The Hon. Chester sallies forth daily aboard his cruiser (get the name) "Galloping Fish." Mr. Conklin has a guest aboard to assist him in his war on the marlin, said guest, Win. J. Connery is extending his stay to assist Chester in a plan he has worked out whereby he is hoping to revolu- tionize the marlin fishing. (His total catch will appear in a special edition). "Lets go." Catalina, magic isle---come! The people of Avalon, both young and old, will be delighted to hear that Dr. Cookman, the celebrated bird spe- cialist, is coming to Avalon. He 6All be here on the evening of October 24th, and will lecture on bird life. He is expected to bring with him certain birds to illustrate 'his address. Avalon is a center of bird lovers, bird study, and, best of all, the home of a great Bird Park. Dr. Cookman will probably speak in one of the the- aters. His lecture will appeal to whole families, and the place shouldbe crowded with eager listeners. ~ "O :--~-'~ COMMUNITY CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH Rev. John B.

On his return to the clubhouse he was warndy congratulated on 'his catch, which wins for him the Club's green button. ,i ,, , ' : " ," , THE ISLANDER ADLETS A careful reading of these Adlets will reveal many bargains that oth- wise you might miss.
