BRIEF IMPROVEMENT NOTES The lobby of the Atwater Hotel is being newly decorated. New floor joists are being placed under the porch surrounding the Av- alon Inn. A concrete walk has taken the place of the gravel in the little jungle park just below the Country Club clubhouse. The new lath house at the S. C. I. Co. gardens above Avalon is now re- ceiving a large collection of choice plants. Two steel oil storage tanks, each 30 feet in diameter by ten feet in height, are being constructed on the mesa above the Falls Canyon power plant. Mr. A. Sutemeier has the concrete retaining walls on his Metropole ave- nue property about completed, and will shortly commence the erection of nine bungalows thereon. A row of the blue variety of euca- lyptus trees has been p/anted just above the Chicago Cubs' training field, and some of the sugar gums in the vicinity of the band bungalettes. The walls of the new Strand Thea- tre building are rapidly being poured. The roof over the front will be of tile. The main entrance, on Crescent ave- nue, gives indication of being a hand- some one. The rafters are in place on the sin- gle story wing of the new Hi School building. The roof is to be of tile. The cement work on other parts of the structure is practically completed up to the second floor. With the one-story side walls con- structed of 2x8 joists, it is evident that the house being built on the West Side Terrace for Zane Grey will not be moved by any of the zephyrs preva- lent about Catalina Island. STARTS FIRE IN BED A young man from Los Angeles, who was under the care of a private nurse, located in one of the cottages on Clemente avenue, started a fire in his bed last Friday evening at 10:30 P.M. The flames were promptly ex- tinguished by the local fire depart- ment and the neighbors. Because he was mentally deranged, the young man thought it was quite a joke to have the fire department come to him. The city officials asked the parents of the young man to take him off the Island, and the "firebug" left for the main- land Sunday. With almost 400 children to receive presents this Christmas, it would seem that Avalon is growing. We remem- ber the days when the presents for the children up to fifteen did not quite reach the hundred mark. And Santa Claus used to come down the chimney in the Eagles' Hall. Now he can scarcely find room to get into the Pavilion, he has so many presents! A new steam table has been install- ed at the Hotel St. Catherine. Chef Jefferson States that the table was made by Chief Engineer Sprinkle and is the best steam table this side of Chicago. It cost approximately $3,000. Subscribe n0w--S2 per year, PAGE SEVEN MARY WILLIAMS CLUB On Thursday afternoon the Mary Williams Club enjoyed a fine program at the Foresters Inn. Mrs. Greeley presided. The ladies voted to be sponsors for the Community Christmas tree, to be held on Tuesday evening, Dec. 23rd, at the Crescent axenue Pavilion. Last year a fund was raised by the Masons, Elks, Foresters, Eagles, and also donations by the people of Ava- lon, to defray the community tree ex- penses. After paying all bills a balance of two hundred and seventy dollars was left in the treasury, so this year the Club hopes that the amount on hand will pay all bills c6nuected with the tree. Mrs. Minnie. Douglas was elected a member of the club. In the near future the club will give a stereopticon lecture on the National Redwood Trees of California. After the business was disposed of, Mrs. Henry T. Wright of Los Angeles, who is district chairman of Co-opera- tion with Ex-service Men and Women, told of her work in a most interesting manner. The work these ladies are doing deserves the support of all true Americans, for they are giving cheer and encouragement to the sick and afflicted ex-service men with whom they come in contact, and to whom we owe so nmch. One club has packed 300 Christmas boxes for them, each box containing paper, envelopes, post cards, stmnps, candy, a handkerchief, etc. A social hour followed after the talk by Mrs. Wright.' Mrs. W. Hare ar- ranged a very amusing game,--"The Age," which was much enjoyed by all present. The Club extends an invitation to one and all to attend the Community Christmas Tree entertainment. CHRISTMAS SERVICES AT CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH Christmas sermons will be the order of the day at the Community Church (Congregational) next Sunday. At 10:30 A. M. the topic will be "The Birth of a King," while the subject at 7:00 P. M. will be "Good News--Glad Tidings."
