PAGE TEN THE CATALINA SEEING THE PACIFIC COAST (Continued from Page l. Column 4) experience. Many times the traveler is almost dumb in puzzled fascination for the many scenic beauties that spring out in different turns of the road. Level stretches in the road re- veal the vastness of the agrictural country beyond, and the many winding curves of the highway carry the trav- eler through the heart of a forest growth that is almost indescribable in its beauty and autumn coloring. It is a noticeable fact that the peo- ple of the northern portion of the great American continent are particu- larly found of talking about their mountain "passes," and autoists, es- pecially, about "getting over the sum- mit," but the Pacific Highway has been so constructed that the autoists seldom pass over the tops of any great moun- tains. The highest elevation is some REMINISCENT By Mrs. Helen Combe*, Los Angeles. About thirteen years ago, I came on a day excursion to Catalina, and being seasick on the trip, felt that I never wanted to come again. But the Catalina Islander gave me an opportunity four years ago to spend three months here, and from that time on I have been a Catalina booster, and have never lost an opportunity to urge people to visit the Island. I have met many people who have been in Los Angeles for a number of years and have never seen Catalina. When I find people like this, I make it a point to tell them what they have missed. And I have succeeded in get, ting some of them, at least, to take the trip. I have come back each year since that three months.

The chief thing which I admired about the Wrigley place, is not its beautiful architecture, its commanding site, which I think the most beautiful in the world, or its fine gardens and lovely surroundings. What connnends it to me more than any of these is the complete absence of forbidding signs states, the drive from Avalon to the Isthmus would surpass any of them. Huge green trees and rivers add a scenic grandeur all their own, but no- where have we found the sky so blue and the sea so translucent as we have observed it for many years at Catalina. Since leaving Wihnington, California, our speedometer has registered a little more than 1900 miles. By keeping on not, perhaps, for a moment pause on the highway as much as possible the only delay we had was from a small puncture, a tack that didn't like to be left in the road, and apparently want- ed a free trip back to California.

It was but a step from that to won- der if some day the city, or Mr. Wrig- ley, or both, might not erect a drink- ing fountain to the memory of that great man who, a little over a year ago, planned to come to this beautiful isle, and who, though his plans were never realized, left a memory behind him which will never die, in the hearts of the Avalon residents. Though the people here need nothing to remind them of the preparations for that visit, its postponement, and what took place on the night he "should have stood in the band stand, and addressed them, such a memento would be a graceful tribute.
