Ward, the 21-year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Shirley Ward, who was a student at the University of California, fell from his bedroom window at the Delta Upsilon fraternity house in Berkeley last Thursday, and was instantly killed. The young man was apparently attempting to play a prank on one of his fellow students and his foot slipped when he tried to step from one window to the other. For many years Mr. and Mrs. Ward and their family, who reside in Los Angeles, have been regular summer visitors to Avalon, where they occupied their own cottage on Olive street. The young man had been a student at the California University for three years, and he was considered by his many Avalon friends as a promising young attorney. The Catalina Island- er has been asked to convey to the be- reaved parents sincere sympathy for their great loss. Word was received from Glen- dale on Tuesday of last week of the death of Mrs. Evalina White, wife of Arthur W. White. She was the moth- er of Wilbur L. White, the Avalon ice man. Other children are John J. White and Mrs. Stella Emerson. The funeral services were held Thursday. Mrs. White was 49 years of age. The sympathy of their Avalon friends is with the bereaved family. Funeral services for "Cap" Jacob Willey, veteran sea captain and for many years an Avalon resident, were held Monday from the Bagley funeral parlors, Los Angeles. Captain Willey died Saturday at his bome, 2009~ North Bronson avenue, ttollywood. He was 84 years of age. He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Frances M. Willey, who is some two years older than was her husband, and by three sons and two daughters. The following Avalon boat- men were pall bearers at the funeral: Capt. John Edmundson, Capt. Enos Vera, Capt. Sam Goulding and Capt. Hugh MaKay. For many years Captain Jacob Wil- " ley was a familiar figure on the streets of Avalon. He was loved by all who knew him. His pleasure fishing launch the "J. Willey/' was always a model of cleanliness, and each morning "Cap" would put on a small white apron and greet his patrons with a cheery "Good morning." An anchor floral piece was sent to the funeral by the many Ava- lon friends of the bereaved wife and family, and the Islander has been re- quested to convey an expression of sincere sympathy to Mrs. Willey, who was always the constant companion of her husband and family. Major Lawrence Mott, Signal Corps, U. S. Army, has been honored by the receipt, 'from The White House, of a photograph of the Chief Executive, autographed to him by President Cool- idge. Mrs. A. S. Laurance arrived last week at Durant, Okla,, with her moth- er Mrs. Louise Phipps who had been here for several months. Before re- turning to California Mrs. Laurance will visit relatives at Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and at Morenci, Arizona, where her daughter Mrs.. McHenry Mosier re- sides.

Editor Catalina Islander: Just received your post card asking" for a fishing story. I don't know any, But, if you'll publish a "confession," I'll write it.' A couple of years ago I used to go fishing at Catalina all alone. Then I landed home after .one of my trips and told the wife that I had caught a fine tuna. She didn't say anything until I said, "The next time, we are both going to catch a tuna." And, believe me, Mr. Editor, we've been pals ever since. The wife caughf four trout last month.
