October 13, 1931 Dear Judge Windle: "I want to express my deepest and ]nest sincere thanks for the fascinat- ing copy of your "History of Catalina " ]sland", which you sent me. I cer- tainly appreciate it ..... "If you have any photographs of the old island steamers, such as the "Warrior" and the first "Hermosa," besides those u.sed in the book, would you please publish them some day in the Islander? I have several friends and relatives who are old-timers at visitiug Catalina, and they join me in ~i desire to see a close-up of one of the early-day boats. Also, if space permits, will you some day print the story of the Banning Company's struggle with opposition boat line to Avalon? Sometime I would like to write an article on the history and romance of the cross-channel steatllel" line, if more information was availa- ble. "Thank you again for the book. Your friend, Frank Butferworth Catalina pottery won three special awards at the San Pedro Fall Flower ~how sponsored by the San Pedro Garden Club. A record attendance was reported during the three days of the show. Originality of design and beauty of coloring were among the distinctive features that attracted spe- cial attention to Catalina pottery. Harry Kirkman,. manager of the el- vera Street Catalina Products Pottery ~hop was in charge of the exhibit. Special awards were given for a tile- top table with hand-painted desert scene and wrought-iron base; a small bud vase and a hahd-molded Spanish flowerpot. A number of Avalonites have re- quested the Catalina Islander to thank, through its columns, Presiding Judg~ John I, Fleming, of the Superior Court, and Judge Falk from Hunt- boldt County, who presided over the second trial of David H. Clark, for permitting the KNX microphones to be installed in the courtroom so that the proceedings of the trial ,could be broadcast. The reception of the broad cast of the closing arguments of the attorneys c;ame over to the Island very distinctly. Almost e{'ery local ra- dio was tuned in to the broadcast. The death of Thomas A. Edison last Sunday, the man who transformed the lighting system of the world, has stirred the sympathies of the people of the world.

Chairman Ralph Heywood outlined an extensive pro- gram of activities which was heartily approved by those present The first Court of Honor will be hekt on Novenlber 18th, in the lobby of the Crescent Avenue Island Villa.

HARBOR MASTER HAL.STEAD CORRECTS STATEMENT A marlin swordfish caught by "Alex- ander the Great," September 4, 1931, while fishing with Captain Enos Vera, was landed in 41 minutes. The fish weighed 235 pounds. In reporting the catch and publish- ing a photograph of the same, a cor- respondent for the "Peace Oq~cer and Police Reporter," published in Los An- geles as the official publication of the Peace Officers Association of Los An- geles County, reported the catch as weighing 1235 pounds. Commenting on the size of the fish caught by his magician friend "Alexan- der the Great," Captain Barney Hal- stead, Harbor Master, said: "I don't see how the reporter could have made such a grave mistake. Alexander is a skillful magician, all right, but he is not stuart enough to hoodwink me into thinking that his marlin sword- fish, weighing 235 pounds, could add 1000 pounds to its own weight just be- cause it had its picture taken. "I've heard some exaggerated fish stories in my time. You wait until I see my good friend Alexander!" ~:O;~ MANAGER RECEIVES DELAYED LETTER Manager Robert Foehl, of the Hotel St. Catherine, received a letter from Tokio, Japan, which had been mailed to hint on the first Trans-Pacific uon- stop flight from Tokio to Seattle.

Lost in storm in airplane 'Clasina Madgc,' Aleutian Islamls, isolated on uninhabited isle seven days without food or shelter, thence to Siberian coast and Seattle via Nonle, Alaska." Mr. Foehl was much pleased to re- ceive the letter, as it contained infor- mation of importance to him.

Sea Scouting teaches the practical side of navigation, in which swimming, life saving, knottying,compass study, boat building, receive major emphasis. This should prove Very useful to Ava- lon lads, since they are on the water and around boats a good deal of the time; and should be taught the safe and proper way to handle boats and water activities. Talhnan H. Track, Chief Scout Ex- ecutive from Pasadena, was present and discussed current Scouting topics. He also spoke on the new Boy Scout Trust Fund that has been adopted by the Pasadena-San Gabriel Valley Council, of which Avalon is a part. The purpose of this fund is to encour- age people to bequeath money to the Boy Scouts in the form of a Trust Fund.
