D. CHAMBERS SPEAKS AT WOMAN'S CLUB Women banded together in a federa- tion can do much, through their inter- ests, for better government, better homes and advancement in cultural arts. Mrs. G. D. Chambers of Los Angeles, who for many years has been an active member in womens' clubs, gave a most interesting talk at the last Mary Williams Club meeting. She brought to her audience a word picture of the many activities that are taking place among women today, and how, by a large and varied program, one may find something worthwhile and of in- terest. In the five counties that make up the Los Angeles District of Federated Clubs approximately twenty-thousand women gather together to become ac- quainted with the workof each other. Of this number there are over three thousand school teachers, who are looking for help in other divisions, at- te'~ding meetings held in the evening. Each week the Federation presents a radio program. Listening to these pro- grams, one becomes better acquainted with those outstanding men and wom- en who are doing things. Always mindful of the needs of other people, e~/ch Friday at.the Federation Headquarters, a work'room is filled with busy workers ;for the Red Cross, making layettes, hospital robes, or knit- ting sweaters and socks. The American Home and American Citizenship are two club programs that always prove hel.pful and interest- ing. Art, of course plays an important tzart ~n our daily lives, and at every confei'ence, those who are looking- for help or assistance in art work will be sure to lind it. A program on international relations is sure to find a large audience. And so that our true Americans be not for- gotten, there is an extensive program for Indian welfare. Institutions come in for their share along welfare lines and have a vital interest for every one today. ' i Mrs. Chambers said: "New clubs, i mean new friends. New friends bring us all closer together in these trying times. We have the National Federa- tion, and the International that reache~ to the four corners of the world. If. we would all unite and work ahd ask fb.r it, I am sure we, tile club women would have everlasting Peace. Feder- ation means cooperation. Let each woman help in her small way." " The next meeting of the club will be Thursday, October 23. Every one should make a special effort to attend, as the speaker of the day is to be Mr. Earl Pollock, City Manager of the City of Avalon. His subject will he "Civics." His wide and vaned experi- ences give him authority to talk on this worthwhile subject. Do you know that Avalon has one of the finest all-year climates ~o be f~mnd anywhere ? Tuna Club Notes By P. West Marlin fishing was very much on the improve last week, particulal-ly figur- ing on the small number of boats out, and there is every indication of the good sport continuing. Fishing from the Aerial, vdth Capt. George Farnsworth, Joseph D, Peeler on Saturday last took two marlin, one on his light tackle, 153 pounds, and the other on his heavy tackle, 163 pounds. Then on Saturday M~r. Peeler took one more on light tackle. Three fish in two days. Nice work. On Friday, O~tober 10, Lynn McClin- tock and Ed Jarvis were guests of John Bullard aboard his boat Doja. It appears Johnny had promised Lynn a Light Tackle Button marlin, and in or- der that nothing should go wrong, Fxl Jarvis was brought along to root for Lynn, and strange as it may seem the arangements went through with a bang. Johnny found the fish, Lynn . presented the bait, marlin accepted it, Ed rooted in his old time college style. Lynn brought his prize alongside, John ny gaffed it, with Ed at the controls. Talk all you may about three men in a boat, this was them for sure. After pictures were taken~ these three Wal- tonians returned tO the club where Joseph D. Peeler, Honorable Secretary of Club, presented the Green Button to Lynn. Thus ended a perfectly mar- velous day of fishing. , Reginald W. Ragland Was at the :cl.ubhouse for several clays last week. During his stay he fished from the boat Shorty II, with Capt] Parker Pence. Outside of close calls and series of hard luck spots Mr. Ragland failed to get his fish which was a broadbill. He left for the mainand on Sunday but plans to be here again this week-end. (Continued on Page 6, Col. 4) CONGRESSMAN GEYER PASSES AWAY Shortly after noon on Saturday, Con- gressman Lee E.
