Dash, master, senior and junior wardens, respectively, of Catalina Is- land Lodge No. 524, Free and Accept- ed Masons, were delegates last week to the seventy-fifth annual Communi- cation of the Grand Lodge of Califor- nia, at the Hotel Biltmore, Los Ange- les. The present convention is in commemoration of the Diamond Jubi- lee of the Grand Lodge, and is the largest in its history, nearly 1600 dele- gates having registered to participate in its deliberations. YOUNG LADY HIT ON HEAD WITH GOLF BALL ALMOST TAKES THE COUNT OF TEN Miss Jeannette Graham one of the employees at the Hotel St. Catherine had a rather strenuous introduction to the game of golf the other day, so a friend tells us. It was her first game. George Cuny, porter at the hotel, was also playing. Getting ready to drive toward the ninth green, George was at the men's tee, while Miss Jeanette had gone down to the ladies' teeing off platform. As George was about to drive he shouted warning to those ahead, saying that he was likely to drive the ball anywhere. The lady moved back some from the tee, and George proceeded to drive. Following the drive the lady was seen to reel and fall to the ground. Hurrying to her side it was found that the ball had struck her on the side of the head, cutting the scalp sufficiently to cause a free flow of blood. She quickly re- covered from the shock, however, and has suffered no ill effects, except for a sore head. Will she try golf again? That remains to be seen.
