I say "part of them" as there arc two more tocome : One from the Johnson Company, mak- ers of the famous Outboard Motor with which many of the racers will be engined, and another from the Caille Co. of Detroit, also manufacturers of outboard motors--and good ones. Ray E Chapin, my right hand bower on the mainland, reports that "all you hear along the waterfronts is 'The Mo~t Race'---everybody is all pepped up over it, and crazy about the splendid Tro- phies!" Entries continue to pour in! The charming Miss Loretta TurnbuU. who made such an excellent showing in the Avalon-Balboa Race early this year, is one of the "stars" among the women entrants. She is bringing two b~,ats- onc for use if the sea is at all choppy; the other for cahn water. As a matter of fact, many of the entrants are doing the same thing. The Santa Catalina Island Company - alwltys ready to do the generous aud kimlly thing--has advised me. thru President Patrick, that the racing craft will be brought over from Wil- mington, and returned thither gratis! Very sportsmanlike of II Presidente l'atrick--and MUCH APPRECIATED especially as the Hon. SCI Co. are in no way responsible for the Race, ntw have they aught to do with the arrangements, etc. No! It was a kind- Iv act on the President's part!

Phoenix, El Paso, San Antonio, Houston, and on along the placid bayous of Louisiana to New Orleans. "Sunset Limited," famed round the world, carries you swiftly and comfortably. Its appointments are superb; comparable to those of a fine hotel or club. From New Orleans you can continue by train to mid- dle west or eastern points, or by Sbuthem Pacific steam- ship to New York (meals and berth on the ship included in your fare). You can go this way and return if you wish over an- other Southcrn Pacific route Goldcn State Route be- tween Los Angeles, El Paso and Chicago; Overland Route San Francisco, Ogden and Clficago; and Shasta Route to Pacific Northwest and east over northern lines. A choice offered only by Southern Pacific. The new Sunset Route booklet describes this inviting trip in detail. Ask for a copy and for further particulars. See Apache Trail oy Arizona Enroute.
