Am quite interested in fishing and hope to have a try for the gamier and bigger ones next season. Several large rocks tumbled into the Pebbly Beach road during the rain Sunday. They did not damage the road and were removed immediately In 1914 the late Mr. W. C. Schen catne up, and we both used 9"thread lines. He agreed with me that it was ridiculous to use any small- er line than 39 on Nova Scotia Tuna. I admit that from now on my ambition is to land one of our Tuna % a 24-thread.

Suppose when an unapire makes a decision which the members of one team don't like, they could vote to override his decision and do as they pleased ? Suppose when he decides a player has violated a rule, the player could change the rule and put the umpire out of business merely by violating it the second time? How long would baseball last if the players were permitted to "rag" the umpire and reverse his decisions? It would degenerate into a rough house, respected by nobody, and avoid- ed by all clean sportsmen. You cannot have orderly baseball or any other decent sport without rules and an umpire whose decisions are obeyed.--Berkeley Courier. f |i WHY NOT spend your winter at Catalina Island? Une- qualled climate, good hotels, furnished houses at reasonable rates; stores, schools, churches; hiking, swimming, riding, golf, tennis; only 3a, hours from Los Angeles; BUT--notice this, phase--no rattling, banging street noises at night, and you do not perpetually have to dodge automobiles, either day or night.
