Crary and guest; "Susan A", Mr. and Mrs. Grover Jones and guest; "Dolphin", Mr. F. W. Davey; "Flying Cloud", Chas. Far- rell and guest; "Infanta", Mr. and Mrs. John Barrymore; "Seaward", Mr. Cecil B. de Mille; yacht "Loki", and "Good News". The Hollywood Yacht Club is the name of an organization formed by a group of eighty owners of sailing and power craft with headquarters at Cabrillo Beach, Los Angeles Harbor, where racing competition is being ar- ranged, it was announced by the city Playground and Recreation Depart- ment. The new club is the first member unit of a proposed municipal yacht association and plans to take the sport out of the exclusive possession of the wealthy, leisured class and bring it within the reach of the average per- son, it was stated. RALPH BANDINI IS AGAIN IN HOSPITAL Ralph Bandini, secretary and vice- president of the Tuna Club, is in the Pasadena Hospital, where he had to undergo an operation for gall-stones. Mr. Bandini has had a succession of misfortunes during the past two or three years, and was just recovering from a very serious operation of about two months ago. Just by the way of adding to his troubles, the ambulance in which he was being rushed to the Pasadena Hospital got into a collision with another car, and it,proved to be a very serious smash for two of the people in the other car, whose lives are despaired of, and Mr. Bandini's brother Elliot, who was riding in the ambulance with him, was considerably shaken up and bruised. But for once, Ralph escaped further injury and he and his brother were transferred to another car and taken on to the hos- pital, where an operation was neces- sary. We have since learned that it was successful, and that Ralph is do- ing fine. Brother Elliot will have to take a few days to get over his bruises and the shock of the smash-up. It was simply a miracle they were not all killed as the impact of the two cars coming together was terrific. The many local friends of Ralph take this opportunity of wishing him smoother sailing during the coming year, as he surely has had more tllan his share of rough waters for some time past. -- :O:~ MEXICAN FIESTA Those who attended the Mexican Fiesta last Thursday evening spent a very enjoyable two hours being enter- tained by their Mexican neighbors. Professor Espinosa's band played two very delightful ntrmbers during the evening. The young drummer, Ri- eardo Fierro, caused a great deal of comment and praise because of his youth and ability.
