Patrick, president,of the Santa Catalina Island Company for the arrest and convic- tion of the person or persons placing poison On the streets of Avalon with the intent of poisoning dogs or cats or other animals and endangering human life. The local police report that they have found several pieces of poisoned candy. Last year they found poisoned raisins. Three years ago poisoned raw meat. "When persons resort to such tac- tics as poisoning meat and candy, and throwing it on the streets to be picked up by children and domesticated ani- mals they have almost reached the point of human hatred where insanity treatment is required," exclaimed one of the Avalon merchants Saturday. "I lost a very faithful dog some weeks ago but I shudder when I think that one of my children was a constant companion of the dog. What if my child had swallowed the poison ? "Every parent in Avalon should use their fullest efforts to locate the pois- on fiend. Let the law take its full course, when they~ are found! I should feel that no punishment would be sat- isfactory to. one who had deliberately poisoned fo~:l to destroy human or douaestic life. That the same person has carried on this practice for three or four years seems to be the general opinion of the local police." SANTA CATALINA ISLAND COMPANY GETS CONTRACT (Continued from Page 1.

Catallna--"in all the world no trip tike this." SAYS: (Sunshine Psychology Service) "All the fish are not dead yet. Many of them are not hungry, or they do not like the look of your fishittg tackle." "One of the West African proverbs is: 'Who in the world would heed ad- vice of a crab fisher ?' (a poor man hfis no influence)." "I often wonder if the crawfish en- vies the crab because he has nippers with which to fight his enemies." lit * * , , , "No fish desires to be changed into flesh or fowl. Ask any sportsman, he knows." "Monkeys are very entertaining. Did you ever see one monkey make fun of another? No, but we have seen monkeys make 'monkeys' out of human beings."
