PAGE TEN SOCIAL AND PERSONAL Sir. and Mrs. Percy West of Maid- en Lane, called on their way home fr,,m a trip to San Francisco, to see son Charley anti his wife, Nearessa. They" found the young folks very com- fortably located and very haply" in a bungal[,w court in Los Angeles. Char- leg is back on the job at the Hal R(mch Studio. Thev haveas neigh- b~,rs Harry Lillie, jr., and wife, also "Goody" t4all and his wife. Avalon is well represented in that part of town, and we wish these young home-town folks the best of good luck and nluch happiness. During their stav in San FranciscoSir. and Sirs. W;est were guests ofSir. Ellis Arkush of San Mateo. Mr. Arkush is an active mem- ber of the Tuna Club. He took his guests in his car over both bridges and entertained then1 at luncheon at the St. Francis Yacht Club. After a delightful trip of sightseeing, Mr. Ar- knsh took them back to their hotel, thus ending a most deli~zhtful day. Old-timers who were here before the fire of 191.:,, may recall that AI D. Vviggs was connected with the Com- pany's information office and the aquarimn (located about where the steamer waiting room is now). The family consisted of Mr. Wiggs, his wife "Horence, and two boys. Shortly after the fire (which destroyed the aquarium and a large part of the town) the family left Avalon. Of the two boys, Carl, 'the younger, learned the barber trade, and now,sixteen years after leaving, is back again in Avalon, behind a chair in Billie Price's shop. Just one of the whirligigs of Time. Phil M. Swaffield of Long Beach came over on Saturday aboard his cruiser Celia. Mr. Swaffield is presi- dent of the Tuna Club. On Sunday he fished, hoping to run into a stray marlin or broadbill, but it just didn't happen. Mr. Swaf-field is leaving for the east this week, so this will prob- ably bc his last fishing trip for this year. Bill Rogers did not lose any time in returning to Avalon after his band- ages were removed a week ago Sun- dav at Mount Vernon Hospital, N. Y. He took to the airways and arrived safely on the "Isle With a Smile". He looks a bit da:naged yet,but is again busy at the Acme Care turning out delectable dishes for the patrons of that establishment. h,hn 1). MacLean sailed n,rth on the S. S.

Reid kindly took the visitors and Mrs. Stamford in her automobile and kept them bus)- seeing ex erything they could during the few hours be- tween boats. Mrs. Stamford's moth- er, though 75 years of age, was mak- ing her first trip to Santa Catalina Is- land. It was necessary for them to take the return boat in the afternoon, in order to fulfill other engagements. The visitors were all charmed with Avalon and its attractions, and sorry that they could not stay longer. One of the most enjoyable of recent occasions was the farewell party given Saturday evening for Miss Pearl (;oodburn. The forthcoming marriage of Miss Goodburn to Mr. Joe Ham- mond called for the happy celebration. Sir. Hammond is connected with the. Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix.

A novel idea of the evening was the Guest book. Each guest took a turn at lit- erary life, writing a masterpiece and placing the most unusual snapshot of themselves in the book. Dancing at the Hallowe'en party at Sportland ended the evening. The American Red Cross was called upon for assistance to 1,360,00(I per- sons in 128 disasters during the past year.
