Those pres" Is it worth while--the endless search For what is poorly termed "success"? Is it worth while to concentrate On artificial happiness? The frenzied urge that drives men on In sordid striving after gold-- I wonder if they find in it The satisfaction life should hold. I wonder if each day for them Contributes something truly grand. Can men whose hearts are slaves to greed And selfish purpose understand The great abiding peace of mind, The priceless ecstasy of soul That are the glorious reward Of those who seek a higher goal? Is it worth while? Will any man Confess that he believes it pays To sell for things material A life of precious nights and days? We know such plan is not worth while! We know that men are richly blest Alone when they begin to learn That wealth of character is best. DOES ADVERTISING PAY? TELL THE WORLD IT DOES! In a talk with Cement Contractc~r Herbert R. Baker other day concern- ing advertising, he told usfacts that )rove that advertising does pay. He came to Avalon about six months ago to put in the cement work on Clemente avenue for the Santa Cata- lina lsland' Company, and expected to be here a short time.

THE FORESTERS INN TO HAVE NEW COAT OF PAINT SOON Frank S. johnson, manager of the Foresters Inn, Clemente avenue, has received 4,280 pounds of paint to use on the buihlings during the coming winter. Two years ago Frank painted the Forester's property, in fact every- thing on the plant except the aligators and the monkeys. Frank wouldn't tell us the color, but he did say that the "buildings will look like a million dol- lars when I'm through with them." NEW BUNGALOW COURTS Arthur Sutemeier has wrecked one of his cottages on Metropole avenue and has begun work replacing it with a modern court of houskeeping bun- l galettes. They will be well furnished, and attractive and will be a distinct addition to the accommodations for Island visitors. Catalina--"in all the world no trip like this." CHICKEN HAWK ATTACKS WOMAN--INJURES ARM When Mrs. Billy S. Guaricieh at- tempted to release one of her chickens from the talons of a chicken hawk last Thursday, at her home on Mar- illa avenue, was attacked by the huge bird, her left arm was severely lascera- ted. Her injuries were immediately attended to by Mrs. T. M. Polhmnus and no serious damage was done. Mrs. Guaricich is the wife of the chef at the Grill Care, who measured the dead bird and found it to be four feet and seven inches from tip to tip. Entangled in the wire netting with the chicken, the hawk was unable to fly. After throwing a nmnber of rocks at it, Mrs. Guaricich, under the im- pression that she had killed it, reached down to liberate the chicken, but the robber was not dead. Suddenly it re- leased the fowl and grabbed her by the arm. Several of the neighbors rushed to the aid of Mrs. Guaricich. The big wings of the monster bird are now undergoing a "sun curing" process on top of the chicken house. Mrs. Guaricich smilingly says: "He don't get no more of nay chickens, anyway." EX-SERVICE MEN TO MEET AT CITY HALL TONIGHT Catalina island Post, No. 137 of the American Legion, will meet tonight, Wednesday, at the city hall to make arrangements for its annual banquet in commemoration of Armistice Day. All ex-service men are cordially in- vited to be at this meeting. Hugh Stevenson of the Atwater Ho- tel handed in the following clipping from a Legion weekly: Armistice Day November ll--Laughter and tears seldom jar upon one another as they will do on this day, dear to the hears of all. The world will shout in glee, for was it not the day when the great carnage across the sea was officially stopped ? And into that shouting and outpouring of gladness there will creep a tinge of sadness; a great longing and heartache will be born anew in the breasts of mothers and sweethearts and loved ones for those absent heroes who have made it possible for the world to celebrate, and whose linger- ing spirits are urging us on to greater effort to sustain for all time a per- manent peace unto all m~ a.'nkind', .i. ~, Judge and Mrs.- George E. l)aul,, the 9opular mana~ger of ttte Atwatei" .Hotel anti Island Villa,, :left Avalon yester.- (lay for a month S?i trip.
