You are supporting merchants who are boosting Avalon, when you patron- ize the advertisers in the Islander. Captain John Kassar told our re- porter that he had sixty Easter lilies in his garden. Between the garden adjoining his home and his fishing launch Dragon, "Yellowtail John" as he is better known, is a busy man. Arthur Sutemeier has been grading his Metropole avenue property, and last week prepared to put in a cement retaining wall,--and it rained. As he anticipated the showers, he was not disappointed. Keep up the good work, friend. Herbert Baker is doing the cement work. It is a noticable fact that many of the Avalonites this year have "gone north" for vacations of two weeks or a month, in automobiles. Not one ser- ious accident has happened, and all have returned home safely, after cov- ering distances of from one thousand to five thousand miles. The corner stone of the new High School building will be laid with Ma- sonic honors on the afternoon of Sat- urday, November 29th. The ceremony will be held under the auspices of Cat- alina Island Lodge, No. 524, Free and Accepted Masons, and the Long Beach Board of Education. Full particulars will be announced in subsequent issues of The Catalina Islander.

How many errors can you find on page eleven of this issue? THINKS CRITICISM BENEFICIAL Editor Catalina Islander: The students of Catalina Hi-School were indeed pleased with the letter from "Troglodyte," which was pub- lished in the Islander last week. We appreciate his friendly criticism, and wish, through your columns, to thank him. It is a pleasure to know that our "Sugar Loaf" is read by someone who is willing and capable of giving such beneficial advice. We hope that our friend may note improvement. "Sugar Loaf" Editor. JUDGE NOT A JUMPER "Accidents will happen" is a popu- lar saying, and the adage proved true the other day when unforseen diffi- culties arose for a member of the ju- dicial force of Los Angeles County. That is why Judge Louis P. Russill of Los Angeles, who owns the cottage at 348 Eucalyptus avenue, arrived Satur- day, November 1, on board the pleas- ure yacht Dorsal, as the guest of its owner, Captain Benjamine Weston, Commodore of the California Yacht Club. This was the Dorsal's mai~len trip, and the Judge is so enthusiastic over it that we anticipate in the near fu- ture he will make his many trips across the channel aboard his own boat. This particular trip aboard the Uor- sal was the result of a situation which, it seemed to all appearances, would prove fatal to the Judge's anticipated visit to the Island. After motoring from his residence in Highland Park, he arrived at Wilmington just in time to see the Avalon cast off her last line. In response to his exclamations of disappointment, the Judge was invited to jump. However, being further ad- vised to make it in "two jumps," on account of his dimensions and previ- ous athletic training, and feeling that this would not be strictly in keeping with his judicial dignity, he declined. Just when the situation seemed lost, Port Warden C. B. Terry, perceiving the keen look of disappointment on Judgs Russill's face, took the matter in hand and undertook to obtain other means of transportation by appealing to Captain \Veston~ who kindly con- sented to provide safe transportation for "His Honor." The Judge agrees with Shakespeare, that "Ali's well that ends well," and further declares that he had one of the most enjoyable trips across from the mainland on the new cruiser Dorsal.

It is asserted that Roy Mack, son of Connie Mack, part owner of the Philadelphia Athletics,-has been ap- pointed business manager of the Port- land Club of the Pacific Coast Base- ball League. At the Rose Bowl, Pasadena, on New Year's Day, it is probable that the annual intersectional football game will be between Notre Dame Univer- sity and the University of Southern California. Announcement has been made that the first national track meet for wo- men will take place at Pasadena, Cal- ifornia, in June of 1925. In the Presidential race last week, Calvin Coolidge defeated the field. You can save money by patronizing "Hoover's Cash and Carry" store on Sumner avenue ..... Advt. ADVERTISING :MEANS GROWTH Time was when men could carry on a business and prosper without adver- tising. That is no longer possible. Today the man or firm who attempts to gain the patronage of the public must constantly inform that public as to what he has or wishes to do. In the days when the advertiser was a rarity, growth and development of the community were ahnost unknown. Things went along in a sleepy fash- ion and, although men were born, lived and died, stagnation was everywhere the rule. Today the opposite is true. Cities such as Los Angeles are becoming heal- ter places in which to live and rear families, while the nation itself is pro- gressing along all lines. For this the persistent advertiser deserves much credit. Advertising informs the public of the merits of articles which may be need- ed or desired by mankind. Improve- merits of various kinds are first brought to the notice of the citizen- ship by judicious adve~rtising. In ad- dition, the public is in this manner in- formed where these articles may be obtained. Time is an object in life in these days. In the past it was not a hard- ship for a shopper to roam about the business district, looking into ",$-in- dows or engaging clerks in conversa- tion regarding'possible purchases. To- day the public depends upon newspa- per advertising for the bulk of its in- formation about what may be bought. This fact was conclusively proved a few months ago when the printers' strike in New York made advertising impossible for several weeks. As a re- sult business stagnation was immediate and marked. When giving credit to the elements which go to build up our modern city and present-day civilization, therefore, do not overlook the man who adver- tises. He is not only doing himself a favor, but he is in great measure as- sisting the race to progress and help- ing the place where he lives to attain greater growth and prosperity.--Girard News. The members of the Avalon election boards, who worked so diligently into the late hours oa the night following the rain of ballots, wish The Catalina Islander to express their thanks to Mrs. W. M. befavor for the hot tea and coffee, and other more substantial refreshments, which she so thought- fully supplied them about the midnight hour.
